Sir Ben Kingsley, the legendary actor who won an Academy Award for his second role on film in "Gandhi," seems to approach every role with a fearless pursuit of depth and vulnerability. Even in the upcoming animated film "The Boxtrolls," his dastardliness as pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher comes alive thanks to his booming, authoritative voice.

We talked to Kingsley at Comic-Con to discuss the upcoming film from Laika (the same folks who brought you "Coraline" and "ParaNorman"), his favorite actor, and what we can expect from his vocal work as Bagheera in the new "Jungle Book." 

"The Boxtrolls" opens wide September 26.
