The Thing's speech patterns are loosely based on those of Jimmy Durante. Michael Chiklis portrayed the Thing in the 2005 film Fantastic Four and its 2007 sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Jamie Bell is scheduled to portray the Thing in the 2015 untitled Fantastic Four reboot." (Wiki)
