“parallel” [between this show and ‘Superstore’] Too many for me,” Feldman, 41, told The Post.

“Not only is this a workplace sitcom, but my special character is this guy who’s landed in a place he didn’t expect, feels a little better than everyone else and doesn’t think he’s there. And then this The show is about him trying to figure out how he fits in and learning to love a working family.

Although he did some voice work for “Big Hero 6: The Series”, this marks Feldman’s first film as the star of an animated series.

“Voice acting always felt like this club I would never go to,” he said. “Once you start doing it, you’re part of a club and you do a whole group. You read the credits on these things and it’s a lot of people, so I assumed, ‘Okay ‘I’m not going to be the voice man, nobody wants my voice.’ And then it happened, which was an incredible surprise and total joy and it was so funny and overly intimidating. And then you have John and Billy and all these incredible actors. I’m lucky I even found a way in. ”

Tyler Tuskman is a large and scary-looking creature with horns and purple fur, but Feldman said his appearance changed during the making of “Monsters at Work.”

“Previously, he was a character who resembled my voice. He was more dull and pale and lean and awkward. Then — and this is one of my favorite decisions anyone has made on the show — at some point, someone must have said, ‘Wait a minute, what if Tyler is a muscular brooding dark purple thing with horns? And then it’s funny that Ben’s voice is what comes out of it.’ This character had evolved, and I love that he did. I think it’s really fun. You don’t expect a scary monster to sound like this guy. “

He said that he did not have to prepare for the role after watching any of the earlier films.

“I was a total fan of it, who isn’t? When I said, ‘I’m doing this show, it’s a continuation of the world of ‘Monsters, Inc.,’ no one answers, ‘Oh, what is that?’ It’s like Coca-Cola, I can’t remember when I first drank it, it’s always been like that. Such is the world of ‘monsters’ like mine. But then there’s been a resurgence over the years because of my There have been children.”

Feldman, father of a 4-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter, said he was glad he was able to star in a show his kids can watch before they turn teenagers.

“I showed him the trailer to see what his reaction was. And my youngest – my daughter – just said ‘Daddy Purple!’ But she doesn’t seem that impressed. My son is convinced he already knew about the show and has already seen it and it’s no big deal that I’m one of the voices. So, we’ll see how they respond when they come out. Whatever happens, it will be against my expectation.”
