"Jimmy, the Shoshoni (we even had him speaking the language in an early draft) was a character we needed to get right without going all clichéd Native American, and thus insulting. A bit of Elvis, a bit of James Dean and a lot of 'tude. Again, once the animators had Tim Howar's voice to listen to, I think that helped - it certainly de-bulked him a lot. Jimmy wasn't meant to be beefcake, although he could handle himself in a fight." Gary Russell
