Alan Tudyk Timeline
1964Alan's most prized possession was a 1964 Mustang, which he named Old Sock.
1977Smokey and the Bandit (1977) is his favorite movie.
1984In 1984, he performed in the Haggard Middle School (Plano, Texas) play Aesop's Fables as the Fox and won UIL regional best duet acting with, now internationally famous musician, Karl Poetschke. They performed excerpts from Neil Simon's "The Odd Couple". Alan played Felix.
2001In the commentary for both _A Knight's Tale (2001)_ and _Knocked Up (2007)_ the directors mention having to give Alan the role due to his improvisation in the audition, His "your entrails will become your extrails" in A Knight's Tale and his whole "Tighter" bit in Knocked Up.
2002According to the rest of the "Firefly" (2002) cast, he was consistently the worst speaker of Chinese on the show. He attributes this to having to learn long and complicated phrases such as "Mother of God and all her wacky nephews" in Mandarin.
2002According to the "War Stories" (1x09) episode commentary, when he couldn't remember the Chinese dialogue for "Firefly" (2002), he would just make it up and hope no one noticed.
2002In the Firefly episode "Out of Gas" (1x05) Wash wires up a large, red button for the captain to press if he needs the crew to return to the ship. When he shows it to Mal he says, "When your miracle gets here, just hit this button." When Alan left the "Firefly" (2002) set after the series was canceled, he took that button as a keepsake. When Joss Whedon announced that he would be searching for a way to bring the show back as either a series or a feature film, Alan sent him the button with a note that said, again, "When your miracle gets here, just hit this button.".
2002As a nod to his character in "Firefly" (2002) and Serenity (2005), Alan can be heard in Halo 3 swearing in Chinese, quickly followed by "I wish I was someone else right now!".
2002Threw a we-don't-work-for-Fox-anymore party for the cast and crew of the short-lived TV series "Firefly" (2002) after he heard that it was canceled.
2004In preparing for the role of Sonny in the film I, Robot (2004), he studied dance, movement, and mime to accurately portray movement that was programmed in. His work was captured with motion-capture technology.
2004To prepare for the role of Steve the Pirate in Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004), he joined a group of pirate role players called the Rumrunners and spent a week at Pirate Camp.
2004Alan filled in for Hank Azaria in the Broadway show "Spamalot" while the latter was filming the second season of "Huff" (2004) and working on the 17th season of "The Simpsons" (1989). Actress Sara Ramirez, another performer in the production at this time, was in Alan's class (Group 26) at Juilliard.
