Jack Black said that what inspired him to work on "The Big Year" wasn't necessarily the comedic opportunity to play a passionate bird watcher, but the film's dealings with the competitive spirit of mankind.

"What drew me to the story and to the script was the intense competitive nature of man, even in something as seemingly insignificant and as small potatoes as bird-watching," Black said in an interview provided by Fox 2000 Pictures. "The stakes are so low -- there's no money in it, there's no glory or fame really but to be the best, there's something very funny about that and it just seems to be a tiny microcosm of the plight of man. Something resonated in that silly little endeavor."

Steve Martin might not have a passion for bird-watching like his character in "The Big Year," but the comedic actor could relate to taking a path that others don't necessarily understand.

"My character has been a very successful businessman his whole life and they're hounding him to keep going at it, to run another company and he's looking for a big change in his life," Martin said in an interview provided by Fox 2000 Pictures. "He wants to go off and do this other thing that the outsiders cannot understand, they can't understand his desire."
