"So many more details to everything and just just everything's so well thought out so i don't wanna get into her box right but it's amazing. It's pretty good. And okay. And i think first of all performances incredible. She's she brings very kind of naive but also like she knows her job. So it's a very entertaining sort of her bouncing off varma who is kind of new the situation and hates robots. Yeah well she likes robots yeah. She's a a quirkier. Like amy santiago also with less confidence with with just as much strict interest in like rule stuff like that and she styled so well she's she wears on these like very kind of feminine blouses with big puffy sleeves always buttoned up and she's just like she's such a unique look. She's such a great character. I loved her breakout performance of your show for me. I mean a lot of these other actors and familiar with so copy issues to runako shows up and she's also styled very well she she she got a jumpsuit. Yes boilersuit so. She is a liaison to the police force from peter and she is there to make sure that. Vj varma is not just throwing away like throwing this taxi under the bus so to say like she wants to figure out like okay in this world as mobs three rules of robotics exists and under such rules. A robot cannot kill a human or do anything to harm a human or by inaction. Do anything to harm human. So she doesn't by the fact that this robot went crazy she thinks that there's some reason to behind it and they also have to listen to all directions the humans give them unless say tells them to kill or harm them. Yeah so that's just showing some of the stuff you kind of going into this like. I didn't think that the three rely robotics. comp wasn't in the trade it might be in the trailer but like have you ever seen any other indian media especially with robots like The stuff like that ever references outside of india like this. This is a sci-fi work. In conversation with western sci fi. Way that i've never seen before the closest of what we've seen me the closest comparison for this cargo. Another brand new thing. So i'll also like cargo in a weird way. This is sort of shot. Cinema verite style. Like the office like there's handhelds and then there's like up front interviews with people and you learn about them mean identified. Quit that call that cinema very like the camera is a person and they do talk to. The camera occasionally are aware that there was a camera crew following them and sometimes the cops are annoyed that a camera crews they're not helping and sometimes there are areas the like. Don't bring the cameras in the office is a good. It's very fourth narrow break. Even though i have not really seen the opposite only saw the more like much mockumentary style others also dramatic reenactments cartoons one episode. That almost takes place entirely in a video. Game world But i should get to a jeep. Keep jeep so gbs. This robot that india made in the twenty twenties that basically solve global warming and essentially became a god. He figured out that you could use fighter jets. I think india figured that. I don't think gee figure that out. A india figuring out that you could use fighter jets to put sort of arrow gel around the planet and global warming but then a jeep is this robot who was designed he's built out of a battleship which kind of contradicts stuff..

"I think scully's of nine one. That's my only like deep. I had them both as nine. But i yeah perfect. His his is more like short fused. Impulsive like quick to like jump at people with pretty reserved most of the time and then scully's more politic and kinda hasn't had mcleod's more research lost stiller's foods gina gina. I think this is the last one. Yeah this is the last one. Yeah gina gina three genes three. Oh really interested in a very unhealthy. Three but i think you know howling going to to Okay so how is she a. How is she not a seven. Oh she's all about image Later but he is. You'd think she'd try harder like she's very upfront about how bad she is at her job. I in some ways important to her young job. Being successful at her job is not. What's important to her. But i think like being successful in. Like i don't know like instagram or like in her. Social circles is the thing that important to her. She's she's cool. Yeah she's just cool. I feel like. I've got myself into a situation on this up so i can't argue with that but i will say that that does not jive with certain things that i've seen in the last few seasons i've watched in terms of like their moments where it is revealed that she is actually very good at her job. Yeah but she's not. She actually actively trying to hide that in some ways like she very coy about it. Yes it just doesn't. I don't get that like i don't get how that can be a three okay. This is how because gino wants to be perceived in a certain way which is that. She doesn't try and she doesn't care if she were to be earnest and be good at her job. That would ruin her image if she was just like trying hard all the time and yeah thinking go ahead i was just gonna say like think of her in comparisons like the amy santiago of the show like she is constantly picking nagging. Amy because she does not want to be anything like her she has like diametrically opposed to like all the. Amy is and represents i don't. I don't think it's from a jealous point. I think it's from like a like. I will never like do that. Like many things. Yeah threes never want people to see them trying. They want to appear effortless separate list pa but they are trying all the time own yes. They're trying harder than most of okay. So and i'm with you now. I have one other thing. I'll say in support of that is like do you think it has something to do with. Her job is that she feels like if she was seen as successful at that job. That job would define her because his this she since essentially an assistant or captain like maybe is something else i mean. She clearly aspires to something else. Right like this is not her passion. Which you've alluded to but like. I wonder if that's like a three working at a gas station. You know Yeah yeah it is definitely. It's beneath her and her intelligence and her skills and abilities. Yeah yeah i think she looks at her co workers and sees that they've kind of arrived at were they wanted to go and she definitely still feels like she's on the journey like early episodes like show that she's like going back to school to get her degree and like she's like doing all this stuff and she's just like behind the like striving and working really hard and she doesn't want anybody to know because she isn't really on their level and it really gets to her but she has to make pasta herself in such a way where she just like super cool makes of everybody because she s she can even play like civilian versus cost card if she wanted to but really it's about like They're in their careers and she's just like a secretary aren't careers for her. It's not her in game. yeah right. that's amazing. That's cool okay. well it's very next segment. It's.

"All right so i've got the characters pulled up. I'm just going to run through them. And i think we should start with andy sandberg's character. Jake peralta shape peralta. We all agree he seven. Yes okay cool was easiest. Is there anything we need to say about that. Other thing i would only say he's i present like he presents his seven wing eight like early on but then like i think is a serious progress. Developed his six signed and become really like melons. Interesting all so like loyalty stability security decisions like last year like he gets like wool. T toned-down still like spontaneous. And like you know quick. Thinking was that the like i'll do anything by any means necessary. I'm going to go now. Run through this belgian. Even though it's on fire like there's less of that happening. Yeah interesting. isla. There's just a lot of him like like in. That show is like wanting to have experiences because they're cool to have you know what i mean like. You can tell us why he became a cop because he wants to have co moments. You know Polymathic glad that he's matured overtime. And he has that. Like michael scott thing where like. He should be completely incompetent but he's not like he's actually a really good cop and he's yeah he's he is good at what he does but i feel like he shouldn't be but he is yet he's right more often than like his co workers want him to be saying like for real. Jake was right like just a sense of like. He just like put the pieces together in his head really quickly. I see that like happening for my friends. They're like really really quick thinking. And your like often pays off for him. That's awesome okay rosanna roseau. Simply not interested in this one. A little bit. I think area. But so i was watching the show taking notes like like a nerd. But i was like. Maybe she's an eight but like honestly she's got really like secrecy issue so i don't know and then there was like a saying were jake was asking for some advice about dating and it's unlike season two or three and she just says to him. I don't know i don't ask people out. I just tell them where we're going. Eight seasoning yeah. She would be anything else. Like what would be the other number of anything. I think five thousand. But i see a little bit like anti personal thing. Yeah antisocial a bed. That's the secrecy thing extreme fake names and like but the privacy and the secrecy that absolutely can be a five thing but i think that for her. It's because she's always protecting herself like she does not want to be vulnerable with people. It's really hard for her. So i think that's her motivation behind it. Which is it keeps are in control of the situation. Yep yep totally. What about terry jeffords terry. Incredible that they named. Terry they named harry terry. Crews this character is named tara. I don't know obviously terry crews personally. But i think terry i feel like he's just being himself in the show hosted like america's got talent. I'm like tear resistance of a challenge Do you guys think he is because he's been the hardest for me to figure out. I think he's too. That's what i thought yet league to. And i think that's part of the comedy of his character is it's just funny to create like he's this huge intimidating man like so strong but yeah he's a teddy bear and he is. He loves people he wants to help people. And he's very sensitive and he loves his family and he's like all about his family. And i think terry's a to the family thing falls in line with that. I guess i thought of him as a one mainly because of his like Obsession with like fitness. And and like he just seems to want to do things right. I don't know but having a wing a one one at first. But then i was thinking like he's probably just a healthy to with like equal wings because he's got that laying effective like i'm gonna work hard and get some things done and i want to hold you guys to the standard flake. Excellence inefficiency. he's just like a really well balanced to like even like to them like his shadow side like we see them struggling with pride and like lack of boundaries. Mike so right. Yeah i was like watching it thinking. What is he sounds like. Oh he's a two liked. Oh yeah he's a two okay. I couldn't imagine this could be anything other than one. amy santiago. Yes yes yes. Yeah mean. Come no question. Classic like class. What's the word like teachers overachiever. Episode recently where they're like trying to bomb squad and she was to ace the bomb squad you know and that's a whole thing now and i definitely think her motivation is just to be good and right. I don't think it's about like. I thought about like three for her just because of the over achieving thing but like i don't think she she does not care about her image. She's not cool at all. She just a giants about thing in her head that creek that the inner inner critic and her head trying to address. Yeah that's why. She's like really preoccupied with what he thinks of her. I think 'cause you 'cause he's the ultimate he's got so much like critique this.

No wait out of the blue director adds. God acts in action short now. I was thinking of deep blue the sharp movie oh deep lucy. Maybe the semi all chart art than in my head is like a shark's fin. Yeah i don't see what is this flaming hot cheetos movie about if you had to guess what the flaming hot cheetos movies about what would the sinking of the lusitania not accurate. I know okay. That's a good guess okay for for a different bevan other guests more guests the building of the manchurian railroad mitcheldean candidate no the the railroad manchuria the one the japan built. No i guess it's not cool the columbine sherry now. Oh is not i think manchuria was like a name that was created to give it legitimacy even though was like land that was taken from an indigenous people from the monchu people what's the manchurian candidate so movie about a guy who who has a trigger word and then he kills politicians. I think sal once about movie so here's a flaming hot cheetos for those those of you who do not know a long standing long employed janitor of the cheetos company took home a batch of unflavored cheetos.

What have i covered these unflavored cheetos with chili powder and <hes> they were really good so so then he he of course pat his own lunch and brought them to work and and people running <unk> what the falker eating and as i took some cheetos and i sprinkle awesome chili powder on them and i they're really good and he singlehandedly invented flaming. Hot cheetos became a national product line. Was he given millions dollars. I believe he was good. I think this is his bio pic. Oh really yeah okay. Don't know how you'd make that into like a full all movie yeah. Let's give our let's give her dream. Let's do a dreamcast for the janitor for the talking cheeto friend who guides on his mystical journey journey either all the characters number one. I'm thinking janitor.

"In New York City. Here's our conversation. Stephanie Beatrice, welcome to a bullseye. Great to have you on the show. Thank you very much. It's great to be here. I am such. So here's the deal. We're going to talk about your new movie the light of the moon in a little bit. Because the subject matter is so serious. I want to talk about the silly stuff. I okay because I think that's an easier transition. So let's talk about Brooklyn nine, which is one of my favorite shows on television. How great I'm so happy to hear that it is. I don't miss it episode. And I wonder how you got this gig because it is an interesting array of types of actor on the show ranging from straight up comedy people to the most serious of dramatic actors that came about in a lot of different ways. One of the main ways I did happen. Was Allison Jones casting director for for the nine nine. She's cast a lot of stuff parks and rec. Rex she freaks and geeks, which is one of my old favorite shows. She just is good at putting a great group of people together. I don't know. You know, I think casting directors are served the unsung heroes of Hollywood. I think that they have a really incredibly tough job, and she pulled us sort of all out of out of our little respective comfortable worlds and threw us together and made some kind of like Al chemical magic. She is really kind of a she's been she's been on the show before. Yeah. I had to I really had to talk her in coming onto the show because she's very modest about her work. But she's cast Blake seventy five percent of the great comedy of the last fifteen years or so. Yeah. And it seems like this show, particularly as with parks and recreation and the office is a show where the characters grow out of the actors on the program that that the personalities of those actors in the way that they match up together really drive the show in a way that's actually relatively unusual for TV comedy. I would agree with that statement. I think you know, one of the best examples of that is actually how I was cast. I initially read for the part of an Amy Santiago who was detailed in the script. It said that she was Latina. And so I went in for that role. And Alison said why don't you come back? I want you to come back for this Amy role. But I also want you to come back for this character of Megan. And Meghan was essentially Rosa. But before I came in. And so like in the script is described her as really tough and scary. You know, real New Yorker, and I sort of took that and ran with it. And then when I was cast when Mike sure Dan gore decided to cast me, they said, look, we're going to we we love you. We're going to change the name of the character to serve you better. And that's where Rosa DS came in. Did you imagine that the big break in your career would come from a sitcom? I did I wanted that so badly sitcoms for me. Have always been a real touchstone of the American experience for me. I immigrated to the United States are not three two or three and my father, and I would watch Seinfeld. Religiously I know every episode of Seinfeld and to me particularly sitcoms. I think are the new sort of Shakespeare in a weird way. And Jason everyone would go to the theater, and that's where you would all connect and like think and talk about human experience. Right. You'd all be in one space watching this one kind of story. And now it's sitcoms. I think that connect us in a way in that way. Did you have Seinfeld? People's in school in Texas where you grew up Seinfeld people. It's like did you have somebody that I remember in middle school? I knew the people that I could go talk to about what on Seinfeld. Well. I mean, my dad my dad, and I would watch it together. And we would dissect it, we would literally dissect it, my dad be like, you know, why that's funny because and then he would like try to explain to me why what had just happened was hilarious. We talk about it all the time. It was really like the way that my dad, and I bonded a lot because as a teenager, you know, you don't like your parents, you think that they're awful, and they are, but really you are awful one. So is the only way that my dad, and I were able to serve bond, and like have a thing that was just hours together when I was in that sort of all full awkward stage. I just really like one of the weird things about Seinfeld that I only noticed as an adult. And again, I say this is the is the biggest Seinfeld fan. I couldn't love the show more. Yeah. Well for one thing as a kid. I don't think I understood that the characters were supposed to be bad people. I I think I basically identified with them literally with no problem at all. Yeah. So that was one thing. But the other thing is like every character. That's not the main cast on the show is essentially a cartoon character. Oh for sure. One of the weird things that that sort of makes happen on the show one of the consequences of that. Is there every person who's not white on the show is a cartoon character? And they're often often they're cartoony nece is based on their ethnicity. You the main problem that I have with Seinfeld. You've nailed it. Yeah. I'm glad I'm like, I always I feel like I I I want to be able to acknowledge that without putting down the significance for me of Seinfeld. Or that? I think is a brilliant work of art or anything. Yeah. Well, I mean, you know, as an actor year coming into especially like, so for example, those all those actors were guest stars, right? And they're dying to get onto what is obsessively one of the most popular shows on television. I think I just use obsessively correctly. But I'm not sure we'll we'll think about it. What's one of the most popular shows on television? Right. So you get your agent calls. You you've not for Seinfeld. And you read the sides, and you think it it's not really a great version of who. I am you know, but you want to do the role. So you go in and then you book it, and you can't change the lines. Once you're on once you're on set. You know, you can only just throw yourself at this thing and do the best possible job that you can. And I certainly played roles where you know, looking back. I I kind of wish that maybe I hadn't taken that part. Or maybe I I wish I could have said something at the time about how the part was written. But. You're not always in a position of power to do that, you know, and sometimes you really need the money. And so I wish that, you know, more writer James had people of color in them. I wish that more writers rooms had LGBTQ people in them. I a people in you know, that is something that's slowly. But surely changing, but that's the that was always the hardest thing for me to when watching one of my favorite shows. And you know, like you talking about like friends, I mean, it took forever for us to see people of color on friends, and like even like in the background.

"Stephanie beatriz? Welcome to bullseye. It's great heavy on the show. Thank you very much. It's great to be here. I am such. So here's the deal. We're going to talk about your new movie the light of the moon in a little bit. Because the subject matter is so serious. I wanna talk about the silly stuff. I okay. Because I think that's an easier transition. So let's talk about Brooklyn nine nine, which is one of my favorite shows on television. L great. I'm so happy to hear that it is. I don't miss an episode. And I I wonder how you got this gig because it is an interesting array of types of actor on the show ranging from straight up comedy people to the most serious of dramatic actors that came about in a lot of different ways. One of the main ways I did happen. Was Allison Jones was are casting director for Brooklyn nine nine. And she's cast a lot of stuff Parkson rag. She freaks and geeks, which is one of my old favorite shows. She just is good at putting a great group of people together. I don't know. You know, I think casting directors are sort of the unsung heroes of Hollywood. I think that they have a really incredibly tough job, and she pulled us sort of all out of out of our little respect. Give comfortable worlds and threw us together and made some kind of like L chemical magic key is really kind of a she's been on. She's been on the show before. Isn't she had to I really had to talk to coming onto the show because she's very modest about her work. But she's cast like seventy five percent of the great comedy of the last fifteen years, or so, and it seems like this show, particularly as with parks and recreation and the office is a show where the the characters grow out of the actors on the program that the that the personalities of those actors in the way that they match up together really drive the show in a way that's actually relatively unusual for TV comedy. I would agree with that statement. I think you know, one of the best examples of that is actually how I was cast. I initially read for the part of an Amy Santiago who was detailed in the script. It said that she was Latina. And so I went in for that role. And Alison said why don't you come back? I want you to come back for this Amy role. But I also want you to come back for this character of Megan and may. Meghan was essentially Rosa. But before I came in. And so like in the script is described her as really tough and scary, you know, real New Yorker, and I sort of took that and ran with it. And then when I was cast when Mike sure Dan gore decided to cast me, they said, look, we're gonna we we love you. We're going to change the name of the character to to suit you better..

"Like what else you guys? Like, do you want hair on my plants? I do I do good. We got a plant question. What was the plant to find it quicker? Yeah. It was I meant to pace it in the dock, but then I forgot well, Jen looks for the plant question. I'm going to give you my general plant tips from Trinh Garitano number one determine which Brooklyn nine nine character. You most identify with is it Andy Sandberg's character, Jake Peralta who may forget he owns a plant. Sometimes you may wanna succulent. Are you an Amy Santiago who wants over brushed her teeth so much that she had to get a root canal? You probably want a tropical foliage plant that you will need to like over ten to. But if you are a genus Nettie, if you are a person who leads with their feelings, you can handle any plant because you just got to get in touch with that plant. You gotta get to. Third base with that plant every day put your fingers in the soil and see how it's feeling Jen. Do you have the plant question? I do. Hi, gentleman around thanksgiving. My mom rolls up to my house with this little alive European Cyprus as my Christmas tree because she wanted me to have something anyway. So now, it's twelve twenty seven. No, it's not it's actually January seventh. Now, this is an only mil I have the street and it's alive. I put some water in it. I found the attached information about the plant and not helpful though for light. It says partial shade to full sun. That's all the kinds of light. I think in and for water it says keep moist to establish isn't it established? It says it can get fifteen tall the potus too small. If you have the time and energy, please help me. Oh my God. This you've come to the right place because I too have Cyprus. I've. Okay. So you are one hundred percent, correct. The biggest problem that people run into with their house plants is that there's no actual language and vocabulary that has been decided upon by the community. So you're totally right. Partial shade to full sun means basically everything, but for this context what they mean is if the plant were outside it would want partial shade to full sun, which means that this plant wants a shit ton of light because you can't give full sunlight in your home. So if you want the plans like like thrive, and like really grow you might want to invest in a light like a plant light on you definitely want to keep that plant in a west facing ourself facing window, south facing, most plants really love cell facing. I have mine in a west facing window that will probably move back in the spring and summer because that direct sunlight may be a bit much just keep spinning that plant around. Oh, yeah. Definitely, especially if you don't end up getting supplementary light, you want to flip that plant. Maybe one eighty degrees. Like every other day just to make sure that it's getting even light keep mois to establish. Okay. So let's talk about Cyprus. You are totally right. These plants get huge outside, but a lot of people keep Cyprus dwarf size and the way that they do that is they trim the routes every time they repot. So that they don't get tremendously bigger each time. So if you wanna keep a dwarf cypress like around like, maybe three feet tall maximum. So every year you are going to repot the plant into maybe not even necessarily a larger pot. You're gonna trim the roots a little bit to maybe take a little bit off Google, trimming roots of a Cyprus. So that you know, exactly what you're doing. And then repot it, and and it should be fine people keep cypresses inside a lot on. But again, like the biggest issue is usually the light. Because again, it's a plant that wants all of the light when it's outside, and you don't have it outside. So maybe like spring summer, you could actually put it outside..

"Welcome to let the USA Stephanie be at threes, and Melissa who made all thank you here. So I heard this story about your audition for Brooklyn nine nine, and you don't know this. But you know, I actually dreamt of being an actor one day myself. And so, you know, the whole thing about dishing like I know a little bit about that. And I hear that. There was a story about like each of you kind of going into the audition room and what happened. So what happened originally we actually destroyed for the same role? Amy, Santiago was written as a Latina character. So we both went in at different times. I never met Melissa before we book the show. But at different times, we went into Allison Jones office who's the catching richer original casting for our show. So yeah, we both read for the same role originally the role that you were reading for. They said, okay. Basically, this is like a good girl letty. Who's a little bit of a Brown, noser terribly insecure? And you know, is just a big pleaser that was the role that you were both reading for. No, it was originally. It was just she's a detective she's kind of the foil to Jake to Andy's Hamburg's character. And actually, she was originally just like very capable very confident like kind of all the parts of Amy that you see still now on the show and she's doing like the cop stuff it was mostly that. And she became a bit more developed all the nerdy and social anxiety stuff kinda came in. There was such a nice way of saying that that was I was I was quite terrible about that. I just said that she was a bit of a of a good girl and wanting to be brownnoser in like she's dealing with anxiety. So thank you. Really fall in love with your character all the parts of them. Well, and I, you know, I don't know if this is actually true because I've never asked Dan gore about it. But I myself was so nervous and like high energy when we were her the pilot and everyday changes on the script would come out and Amy would get a little more nervous and some of the brown-nosing withhold came out. And I was like oh my God. Are they picking up that I'm so every day and like making the character more me because they would have picked that up for Rosa two years. I was terrified the whole time. They are. But you hit it very well. The both of you go, and I guess actor says oh my God. Wait, it's not just one let the we can have to completely. Characters in one television show. Why I think I think that was you know, what ended up happening was that Alison sort of said, I don't think you're right for this role. But I'd like you to read this other role this written in the strip and Meghan Meghan was the way that Rosa's describing the pilot which is like smart, tough and scary as hell and then. Yeah. And then each of us had our respective screen tests, and they ended up changing the name of the character. And they changed ethnicity to and you're you're so lucky because you get to work with one of my I mean, of course, any Sandberg, of course, Saturday Night Live. You know, I'm yes. But but Andrea our oh my God. Everyone knew commanding officer captain Ray, hold. He's just such a great American actor with such heft. And he just kills it in that show by by not showing any emotion. Incredible..
