The thing that makes "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" so compelling is the apes, so Deco hit up the human actors who play the apes to find out how to access our own inner ape. (Insert simian grunts here.)

Two worlds collide when humans cross paths with apes in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes." Earth's population has been decimated by a virus, but apes are thriving, and the humans feel threatened.

Andy Serkis plays the head chimp, Caesar.

Andy Serkis: "Caesar inherited this enhanced intelligence drive which is pushing him forward, not only his intelligence, but he's evolving physically."

Jason Clarke was amazed at the technology that brought the apes to life.

Jason Clarke: "They're just little creative little Willy Wonkas, you know, coming up with this new stuff."

And head ape coach Terry Notary, aka Rocket, taught Deco how to access our own inner ape.

Terry Notary: "Figure out what makes us human, peel those layers away and get into this really deep, deep, centered self."

Terry Notary: "And then you have an energy, a certain sort of ape-like energy."

And don't forget to lower your voice.

Terry Notary: (making ape noises) "Open up and sort sort of use your diaphragm and open up and ..." (more ape noises)

Careful, though. You could start a war.

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.

    The last time I had on a pair of overalls, I was miles from civilization with a whip in my hand, an hysterical co-worker by my side and five angry cowboys staring me down.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.
