Automatic TRANSCRIPT

To be with you. I must say this may be my. What do they call it Swansong? No you're Swanson O- On these interviews. This is shut down. He said well. How does any of this would be one day have you Willie? Geist HERE BY COMPETE. Should I friend gets another car? And we'll drive around the island shout. Oh yes. We're going to do that. It's when I oh you okay if I get out here I'll be going to the flowers show always go one more block I think. Oh is that right. You're spot don't is a place they have it they call it. Greek yielded. Yeah I don't know never heard of such a thing. But they say it has no sugar so you start eating it because who doesn't love ice cream it's by and it's over once you start eating it. It doesn't really taste that good but it's purple and pink and it's chocolate and you just keep eating trying to find it. You're trying to find the Ice Cream somewhere in that yogurt. You can't. It's a bait and switch based team and it never shows up and you look for it and you're one hundred house and they've got you. I like it's fun. This is so cool. What a blast. Thank you for me. This was great in our language. They call it being a good sport. Oh you're the good sport here man. This is good. This is above and beyond you know Steinfeld has Seinfeld has a showy. Does this I know now for the commerce. Comedians in cars getting coffee. He'd probably love to have you on that show. I think well we're wired. Yes so some of this will come out. Yeah that's cool and that's that really funny and you're great and I love what a pleasure thank you and I love you to Al Pacino. My big thanks to the Great Al Pacino for an amazing conversation and truly just a surreal day. His new show hunters is streaming now on Amazon. Prime and I'm joined now on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast by the producer of this. Fine podcast Maggie Law. Hi Maggie Highway and the producer of the interview for Sunday Today. Airing on NBC Brittany Mania Hybrid. Hey man. Alive holy smokes. You know what I mean. That was out the Chino and he was just hanging out with us in a convertible riding shotgun while I drove him around Beverly Hills. I'm still recovering from a little bit. I can't believe it actually happens that. Go down in your careers. Yeah I think so. I mean we've done a lot of these for this show almost four years Letterman jumps out as being special people who were in some other stratosphere who existed on a different plane. So they never thought you'd meet in your life let alone spend a day with and have some affection within rub relationship that time. So he's up there. He's he's way up there Let's talk about the car. I because that was so visual people the size of a boat as I pointed out at nineteen seventy six cadillac. Eldorado like you'd see in Goodfellas scarface as he sat her. Serpico one of those kind of Arab movies and I was we walked out of the restaurant and he saw the car and he got his shotgun. I got in the driver's seat and he looked at me. He goes all right. We're GONNA hit up to the trailer now because when you shoot a movie you don't actually drive car they put it on a trail. Nato you around and you make it look like you're driving and you chat and I said Oh no no. I'm going to be driving you. And so I just there was Albertine own shotgun riding around Beverly Hills and I was careful not I was gonna say. Did you find it into a pressure? Yes he like. Came alive though during that car. Ride and the sit down he. Was you know as you expected but during the car and you could tell he really enjoyed being out and about you did and I thought for guy that famous. Maybe that's a burden or you want that and We had the top down. Obviously and of course every car stopped and we'd be in traffic and roll down their windows and shouted two and I was waiting to see how he react to that and one as well making his life and he was in no rush really to go home. I kept thinking maybe I should turn it right here and we'll go back to the restaurant. He can go back home and he's a goal appear take a right. He was very concerned about that. Six way intersection in Beverly Hills. It's a desktop. It's a death trap but we managed that together so it was it was I keep using the term dreamlike streamline. How did that come about so I was GONNA say. The dream quickly turned into a nightmare. When sun began to SAG dream for me. Maybe yes for you. In the sunshine. When sun began to set we realized that the car's headlights were not working and they apparently never worked. So your lovely Assistant Taylor. Taylor was is a little more experienced driving than I am so she was tasked driving the car home but did it together. Not I can't stress up a huge car. Huge like nowhere begins right. The front of the car is like several feet. Long imagined without headlights. Without how do you see where the car had to black car? So who so? We had to stop a couple times. Get our bearings straight Taylor trooper interstate we did. We were on sample of our help with some of the lights. Other wearing like a suburban area of that street But Yeah we had a couple of days. We left a wide berth. Between us in the car in front of us just to make sure you get them But we got it home safely and then quickly got into an Uber. And that wasn't like you weren't taking it back to the Hertz car rental that was like a guy's car and like he wasn't even home when returned it so like his friend off the car. We had the over waiting for us so that we can drop in and go through these. Are The sacrifices you guys make for greater yes that is true true producing But I thought Maggie just to back inside the restaurant to be able to sit in a booth with Al Pacino and just say because as I said he was open to everything. It wasn't like you have twenty minutes and you can only talk about the show. That part was fun the Amazon. Show but to say. Hey Godfather go right does have him. Tell the story behind the scenes about how the student didn't want him to be in. Godfather was also surreal. I was GonNa say I feel like it must have been you keep saying dreamlike but just to have like over an hour to sit down and pick Pacino's brain on anything and I was just listening to it. It's just like conversation. I my one thing on the podcast is his voice to always says people recognize him for his voice and I was like I just listen to him for days all of that and he I don't know he was just. You don't know what you're going to get you know. Sometimes some of that famous. Who's been through that much? Hollywood life is not willing to play ball but he walked in wide open. Seemed like he was in a place where he really wanted to reflect on his career. Yeah yeah he said You know his eightieth birthday is coming up mentioned earlier and he's starting to feel a little nostalgic. I think you know he's like I never did these interviews and ever talked about the stuff and I'm ready to do it and we just happened to be the one sitting there perfect I think we sold them with the seventy six Eldorado. That really close the deal. I think I told you he sent me an email afterward. Now no email came through. Okay thank you. I know. Invite him because it was in that same language that whole thing which I just love And he had a great time and wanted to thank all of you guys to for doing such a great job taking care because I think it was a big deal for him to sit exposed himself that way yeah with all his career and his story so it was amazing guys Al Pacino Al Pacino Vici.
