There are a few weird things about that clip. First off, around here for animation the usual stipulation from the big studios and most of the small ones is specifically U87. And it's become almost standard, especially with celebs, to put up an identical "safety" mic a few inches further back. The mic seems to be positioned for the camera, and the pop filter's position in front of it is pretty haphazard. Also, the "reader" is jumping in really tightly after Hanks' lines, either risking overlaps or actually creating them. Good for the pacing of the clip, but in actual practice nobody would ever do that.

So my take is that's it's staged, not real, so who cares what the mic is.
