Nathan Lane!" "If I see that dog tonight," Broderick told reporters, in unconvincing mock anger, "I'm going to ... I don't even know." When a reporter pointed out that Robert Smigel, the voice of Triumph, was in the corner, Broderick countered, "Is that who does the voice? I didn't know that. But I did know about the line in advance. I really do think that anything that Triumph says is hilarious." Getting clearance from Broderick, Smigel? For shame.
