"And I mentioned how I felt that the first movie really paralleled my own life in a major way – that Emmet was this ordinary guy who gets the chance to become special and do something extraordinary and be a hero.
"Through the course of voicing the first 'Lego Movie' I got cast in 'Guardians of the Galaxy', so I myself, a very ordinary, regular guy get given the opportunity to do something extraordinary."
