One of the Main Characters Was Inspired by Crazy, Stupid, Love

While the name of the short is Lou, the apparent name of the creature made up of items from a lost & found box, it is just as much a story about a school bully named J.J. as it is the creature. The design team looked at several films trying to find inspiration for the bully character, like Scott Farkus from A Christmas Story, and even Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Eventually, they found their emotional core in Jonah Bobo's character of Robbie from Crazy, Stupid, Love. Bobo had a look which outwardly reflected confidence, while also intimating an inward vulnerability which is exactly the combination they were going for.
