The Establishment Welcomes Godless Hollywood Liberal Jeff Daniels

"Now you may remember jeff daniels from the movie dumb and dumber and if you ever wondered while watching that movie will who's dumb and dumber. Let's listen to this clip and you will know exactly who i think. The bloody sunday for people of color was george ford's murder and white people said. I had no idea that we were only taught one side of american history. Better look into that. So i started reading isabel. Wilkerson tana coats. Carol anderson get educated. Because there's a whole we have an opportunity in this country right now to welcome in a america we really do. I feel the same way that there is strangely. Not only in america not in our the way we approach our civic society but in the arts There's there's reasons and opportunity where things are reopened. That never closed ever before to re dedicate yourself to first principles and white people are the ones who need to hear it. So mockingbird is harper lee to white point of view and it certainly is the story of atticus coming to grips with the fact that one of the big central questions of the play is. There's goodness everyone you just have to care enough to look for it. Is that true today. In two thousand twenty one. Is there goodness everyone not so sure. But you have to choose. Now you have to decide whether you're for eliminating or at least marginalizing systemic racism or you against you have to choose. You can't just sit back and go. Please cut my taxes. Look the other way. Well there's also a choice before that which is to acknowledge exists acknowledge it exists

"Did it, and I'm just very pleased with the outcome. So I can't recommend it highly enough. Now let's move upstairs. We'll stay upon for them. I have a cottage. I'm a cottage yet. We're gonna strip completely to the studs do a complete gut. And it's a small cottage and has a small attic up, Atticus, maybe 5.5 ft. We're thinking about just taking off the ceiling and just opening up. The living area and the soon to be new kitchen. To the ceiling. Um, just give it a more open feeling and not feel so cramped. Question is, what do you do for insulating the roof? Because that's really not. It's going to be They're gonna be looking at. This could be a nice, you know, vaulted ceiling. So what do you do for insulation of stuff? I haven't talked to my contractor yet, but I just want to know from my own information. And what our value would you recommend for the wall since we're going right to the studs? Great question. Yeah, it is. It's an excellent question. You're gonna take that right down to bare studs. You could very easily make your roof rafters thicker by fasting, You know, material to the end of those, so you'd want to make him thicker. Can you picture that? Deeper, Yes. Okay, So if they're loaded, let's say they're two by eights. Right now. You want to turn those into two by tens, or do I wish they were two by eights? I think they're more like two By sixes. Maybe you're mean. This is all I've got is built in 20. You'd like to make him into two by tens. You'd like the fast in a piece on the end of those who make him deeper. And then if you buy, Yeah, Styrofoam baffles. Can I talk about those all the time that the insulators use and literally fill every cavity with a baffle so that air can move from the IV all the way to the ridge? Mm hmm. They just staple and And then fell the remaining cavities with a spray foam. They could do about good, Okay? If they put the drive all over time that it's not ideal, but that's where dear why, no, you probably have to hire that out for the spray foam part definitely at that point, Nothing's going to get through that rough. It's gonna be airfield. It's gonna be extremely well insulated. It'll. It'll be kind of a hybrid hot roof if you will, but I'll still be ventilated. It'll protect the roof decking and the shingles because you've got airflow going underneath it in those chutes, and if that makes any sense, good ceiling fans of.

"Like Bird Box and Gone, Girl. And the score for the social Network won the Oscar. They worked with creator Damon Lindell off who also created lost to score watchman. I talked last week with Atticus Ross and Trent Risner. We were drawn primarily to Damon and not knowing him as a person. We just Respect the work he's done. I think what he's done in television has been groundbreaking. When I heard he was interested in watchman and I got wind of his Affinity for the material. It seemed like something that could go wrong so easily. That I know he's going to approach that with every everything he's got and what we found. It was Exactly what we'd hoped it would be. A shame. It's only one season. It's felt like a new man. If I imagine how you write a TV score, You're setting yourself in a world you have major characters. You're exploring that world through sound. But watchman has like a million characters, and it takes place in like four or five different worlds, and all the stories are very complicated. So I found myself wondering as I watched again listening to what you had done. Where do you start with something as sprawling is this The new thing that was presented to us on this product. Being my first foray into television was the You know if it's a film Generally you know how it's going to end you've read the script or there is a script. You have a couple hours? Usually Teo tell the story and one as a composer concert to think about it in its entirety. What It's the shape of this thing. What connective threads could there be? What bookend ish qualities to the score might want to consider when approaching. This was different. Where What did we know? We knew it was nine hours, Okay? And we have the script for the first word. And we have a very vague Very vague understanding of what might happen throughout the course of the season. With major points admitted in the description to US And they weren't finished writing it yet. I mean, it was. I'm assuming that was planned out, but we didn't have access to that. So We didn't know we were. What the ending, Wass. We didn't know exactly where it wound up. We didn't know that there would be we'd be revisiting several different time periods in genre. Yeah, I mean, You could read the script, but you didn't really get it until you got the picture. And then I mean, the two things that struck me when we got the There were two cuts of the episode one the second one. Um, I was one This is really important. And two It's it's simultaneously important and engaging in a kind of Fun would sound like not the right word to use, but there's an energy about it. And that Damon wanted the music to be a character on particularly in Episode one. It felt like We were being let off the leash in a way that we hadn't previously bean in the sense that we were able to dip in, Teo. The talk it that we might use in Aspects ofthe in in nine inch nails, But it was also an education as well. You know, I mean, the whole process of watchman Wass vote. Looking about watchman. I can't really think of anything else. Apart from watchman. I mean, it was a holy immersive experience for However long way are on that which is a blur. Glad you mentioned the pilot because there's a song from that episode that's nominated for an Emmy. The song's called Objects in Mirror are closer than they appear, and it runs to a serious of scenes kind of goes from an interrogation room with the character looking glass all the way to this shootout that happens on a cattle farm. Well, we looked at that really is a sweet of music. How long have you lived in Tulsa? Six have records. No one knew what needed to be propulsive and engaging, and we had some idea of the backdrop of the shots that were being shown at the time. And it was really just kind of punctuation to looking glass this questions and knowing that this piece was going to need to build and build and build and build and build to a member of the associate with members of the white Premises organization, Seventh Cavalry. Up until we arrived. Angela takes off the cattle battle is when we switch music, like what Atticus was saying earlier. Once we realize they want to play music forefront when they want Atticus said. Treat music has character then we were faced with particularly in this first episode. Now there's six and 78 minute chunks of music. It's almost plays like a music video action. Then quickly becomes alright. Help, Khun Oui paste this so that it Still can Step up in ways. It's not all about fast tempo, and it's not all about gun battle excitement. How can we stretch this out? And manipulate the released so that when it comes, you can't wait for that musically to help achieve that. Cop got shot, So we're all a little wound up here. But still that's no excuse for how I treated you. Sorry. Yeah, okay. Vitiate, you understand? I think the one you're talking about now. It starts with an interrogation..

E. sports yeah this is something I can't get I get I just can't get into that one I'm sorry but man I people are like I don't wanna say all over it I think that's overstating it but who knows that people depend on these sports and I I this is I I bet you this is something because it's a generation few generations before us so this is something you know twenty thirty years from now I don't want to say it's going to be as commonplace is betting on did NBA game or a or a baseball game of the football of football and soccer always lead the way in terms of sports betting but I this is gonna be big it's going to be really really big people gonna get into this because we're just like well we followed traditional sports but the younger generation there on Twitter they're watching you know the people play and that's that's not foreign to them so this is something that I think you know maybe not even that far into the future chat it's going to be a pretty big yeah I agree with you the you know eight two thousand fourteen I had just taken over as energy for the S.

S. P. N. dot com and hired a bunch of people Ford in Washington social of two things and if you really well and I have felt the same way about E. sports and gambling L. it needed like a tipping point it needed like an opportunity to get into the mainstream because we have been trying to do it action and sort of lay dead diagram of the audience wasn't quite there like the people who are coming to us more necessarily interested in E. sports and the people who are interested in the sports utility to come to us and what we know from the betting market to really make it worth their while we now all of a sudden because of what happened there is much more betting markets and also by the way a daily fantasy market you know one of our busiest fantasy labs which is really good at modelling daily fantasy projections for football baseball basketball yes this week is watching the sport because there's a massive E. sports daily fantasy business that's happening right now it's it's really fascinating yeah they before I let you go do you have anybody you can take a year leading to for the OC card tomorrow I think I am going to take Gage G. he's a slight underdog he's plus one fifty right now one can only fifty one that's how I'm gonna wait okay like I could do that Ferguson's a bad **** so he's really really good here if you're fighting in the UFC thank you generally that's a good point that's a good point all right we're all right I'll let you go I did I had a great story but I'm like you got to get give give me a damn great story you said up to a better be great even like you have to have your by the way hello there was a long of silence after I said that I thought oh my god because we are you know years ago I did I I will check with a lot of activity and so I went up to I want the family to baseball where he lives and spend like a weekend with him and he trained unlike his training was supposed to be what made him magical is such a huge concern hit people so hard and this was right after he had lost a rampage that he was training for that I think in the match against rampage and and I went out and I saw the training and but you can only eat it wasn't easy but like he worked out for like an hour and like then it was over I'm like this is the amazing training regiment that like turn this guy into the biggest star in the UFC and no surprise he will not let him expect what what what what break for that you just not release that you're broke took windows but autobiography you spend a weekend with him but that's okay Ragone yeah we don't want to run away from that weekend I can't you'll have to read the book I cannot even tell them I'm very yeah they are they're beyond and fifty brother our brother have a great weekend let's see if we could.

think of it as a positive place where she finds goodies and so that's helped and we also have yes that along with the fact that we also have the pheromone diffusers in the wall in okay and so that's why it's a great room for her because it's just her happy place you know when if it's a chip cookies for us right yeah exactly exactly so when it is the day of her that appointment you know it's much easier for me to get her in her Kerry I'll put you know something special in there like a little little tune fish freeze dried flakes or something like that get her in there I think rob and also can be helpful to and I used I don't need to do this anymore but I used to put her in there is that what happened kind of carry her around the house you know just so she get you that feeling emotion we're being told that the really hold the bottom so you're not able to handle because it really could cause motion sickness right at it no kidding yeah doesn't want to support the bottom for sure yeah those practices that made it really easy and stress free for the day that we do take her to the back so I just Perrin's abrupt and she's fine in the car she's never been one to howler carry on in the cars I've kind of got lucky with her I think and we unfortunately don't have a fear of research right practice near eyes yeah and that and I know it's coming soon but I trust me I am talk I've been talking to me about about your free for a couple of years now and so he knows you know when we're coming and he pretends that you know and all he's got it all you know several I'm lucky my my I'm gonna shot out to cancel Linda animal clinic in Dallas doctor Deborah Charles is our vet and she was one of the first veterinarians certified and so it's really made a difference but one thing before we get off the air because I'm just dying and I did tease all the readers let's talk rob Rocher tear go box but more importantly guys yeah let's talk about how you became a cheerleader but also something that you did for the troops went on before you retired all my gosh okay so then I'll make a relatively quick start so I tried out I moved to Florida from Chicago when I got married okay and if you want to tell you what your was anyway suffice it to say it was while ago I tried out three years in a row I was in my twenties I never made it fast forward I'm thirty five years old I'm driving down the road one day I hear an ad on the radio for buccaneer cheerleader tryouts and I thought you know what can give that a try again I was thirty five years old when I made the best squad I was the eldest oldest most mature when everyone college in the NFL that year really okay yeah and would you know what I really think the reason I made the squad that year it was because we had this coach that was she was just amazing and she said I want another diverse women on my squad so that everyone in the stands on gameday can look down and identify with one of these ladies feel anyways I cheer for two years it was just had the time of my life art and I'm a huge football fan anyway I'm in exports writer so we get along I wish we'd done don't bears and all yeah from the Chicago area like you and then I went to San Diego for many years and I can't even say Los Angeles Chargers I'm I'm going there they are just simply the Chargers yes in a day so are you at Tampa Bay examiner about Stan yeah and then I I only check for two years and I decided to hang up the pom poms and start my business which is fetching communications back in two thousand two and guess what happened one the year I hung my palm prints and I decided not to try out that was the year that are Buccaneers went to the Superbowl and the worst timing ever sorry well yeah and anyway when you were on the stand I mean can you give an inside tip about life as a cheerleader in the NFL and and this is keep it PD I'm sorry there are somewhat something quirky or something people would realize about you guys I would say that and this is my this is in my experience in those years that I was there but you would be surprised at the caliber of women on that field these are not just you know girls there you know want to date football players are this just want to be looked at there were some incredible women on the field with me and I'm sure that I'm sure that's the case for a lot of other teams I'm sure you know and then there's your rogue women who you know make a bad name for you know NFL cheerleading but these are educated women these are single moms these were women with careers there is a dentist and a an attorney on the squad with me the years that I cheer and was it hard learning the cheers I mean were you even the high school cheerleader I was not but I was a dancer so okay in the NFL it's more about dancing as opposed to you know to standing and tracks so that was what worked in my favor is I just I had a dance background okay but I will tell you that those women worked very hard to make the squad and it's not just about how how they look or how they dance but they have to pass interviews and they have to know about football and you know so a lot goes into it and Janet and you don't get enough money to retire on right now but not before we leave you did get to visit the troops talk about yet I did so I was cheering and twenty thousand one thirty you know when nine eleven happened and you know obviously so many things changed and all securities at stadiums change and when I was finishing up my season I had an opportunity to go into a DO D. chores and department of defense to our to entertain troops over in Egypt was Pakistan and Turkey we're supposed to go in Afghanistan but the fighting was was really bad when we got over there so we didn't end up doing that yeah it was it opportunity of a lifetime to travel to the other side of the world and to be there to support the men and women who are putting their lives on the line you know it to ensure our freedom here in this country and it was that's why I don't feel too bad about not being during the Superbowl because I got to do that and yeah I think that's the super boring right there have you done with my eyes are purple yeah wow that is so cool so folks we would and I hope we'll just put the pressure on I would love to have you come back to speak on other topics because I think you're awesome and we did get say a quick hello while we're both at global but you're doing great things and folks I want you to go check out the Kristin living dot com site I love it it's a it's Kristin Levin pet living story

"atticus" Discussed on KQED Radio

"Thank you, Diana, and Ashley for sharing your thoughts. We'll get some more of your thoughts and questions in just a moment. But let's add one more voice to our conversation here with us at NPR, New York. Benja Akina bay plays. Tom Robinson in this Broadway production. Bengal, welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. What made you decide to play? Tom robinson. The at first it was the people involved intense to work with Aaron Sorkin with, with Jeff Daniels. It started out as a as a workshop and that was exciting in of itself. So but then when we had the first workshop and we read through this, the first time it was so beautiful. Yeah, I was just glad to be in the room and then but I had no visions of being part of a Broadway production. And even then I just it was just today, works out that was, you know. Would artists get together and do this. And then later on. After that, Scott reached out and asked if I would be a part of the production to come. I was very excited. Safes excited nervous. No. Is this kind of a daunting thing? I I was excited. Nervous came later. When I started to realize the gravity of that was coming together. But it started out in a very organic way for a long time. Like, like I said, we were in that sub basement for about a year need meet periodically. And so it was it was just a stupid for us in a sub basement, no windows. No one looking at us. And so we got to do our own thing in dig into the peace over and over and over so nervous didn't come 'til. They said. All right. This is the last day in the basement time to go to the Shubert. Why do we, we just stayed on darkened safe? It's. What was your relationship to, to kill a Mockingbird before you are part of that workshop, I didn't have as much of a relationship with new of it? I had read exits of it, and I think it's seen the movie years ago, as a child, and I liked the movie, but I haven't been taught the book as thoroughly as most people had I was in special Ed for the majority of my adolescent, so we had a different education, but I didn't know it was a big thing, as far as education to, to most Americans as far as, as far as this sense of nostalgia to most people. So I was aware of its of its prominence to, to to this country. It's got to be an interesting way to approach it. I mean, a lot of people think of Atticus Finch, Gregory Peck. And so that image is like never gonna go away, but there's also something I think to being an actor who doesn't have all that in the background. I mean remember very different play. But I remember when they adapted. Shrek for the staves that the actor who played donkey had never seen the movie. You've never heard any Murphy voice, the character. So he brought something completely different. So for you to kind of step into this with more of a virgin perspective on Tom Robinson. That's gotta bring its own challenges to knowing you got an audience, like fist doesn't sound like what I saw with, Gregory Peck. Yeah, it's, it's I took it as as as liberty to create because we were making a new play. And that was from from the beginning we were making own play. We were not ever asked to although we knew there was a great deal of pressure to live up to the book. We will never asked to do the book, as far as the creative team doing own thing. So that gave us a great deal of freedom, and there was no way, I was going to watch the film in. I'm gonna do Brock Peters. I there's no way I just had to whether I was going to fall or rise. It had to be on whatever I brought to that stage. Let's hear piece of what she brought to that stage in a scene from the Broadway at tation. Of tequila Mockingbird. This is where Tom Robinson played by Bengo Akina bay meets his lawyer Atticus Finch played by Jeff Daniels. Listen, Don Robertson. Yes. I'm Atticus Finch. Yes. Vernon Hockney told you how come? Yes, you tell you why. No, not really. I'm alive. I know the facts your case, if you so choose, I will defend you, an open court in front of a jury not much appears. But still group of people who are not guilty. Verdict is available excuse me. Yeah. Wasn't able to follow that either. Can't tell you how to plead but I can't and a must give you my best advice. You wanna be my lawyer? Tom, very less thing. I won't in the world be lawyer right now negro man what teenage girl. It wouldn't be going in with a win and hands but I'm compelled to defenders officer of the court. And in that capacity of taking a Salam to give him a best council, which is that you cannot, and you must not lead guilty and go to jail for a crime that you did not could not commit. That's Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch and Binga Aquino bay as Tom Robinson in to kill a mocking bird, there is no denying the parallel between Tom Robinson and the stories of many black men who came there after Tom Robinson is kind of the Emmett till of the literary history until the young black man, who was killed in money Mississippi for allegedly whistling at a white girl who later admitted decades later, that she lied about the whole thing, having happened which ended up with 'em until being horrifyingly mutilated beyond. Recognition. How do you deal with the present reality in the story, but has so much of a kind of a history etched in stone? It, it makes it more difficult. Because it's a very, it's a real thing, that's happening on that stage and enough that stage. So it's one thing to betrays a story on stage, but knowing that their real faces, and their real lives and the body count is getting higher all the time. And that in that it makes it to me, it comes at a comes at a cost, but it's I think it's a, it's a worthy end ever. I think is important to, to tell the story of Emmett till what I'm up there to tell the story of Sandra bland on. I'm up there to tell story to Martin, I'm up there. As much as I can contribute to that conversation. So it's if you're fortunate to be able to have that opportunity to, to, to, to, to work that out. I think the most important thing about one of the most important thing about the play is not necessarily the story, we're telling but the opportunity for the conversations that we get to have about race in this country because of the story, we're telling Aaron Sorkin, what about for you? How much of the present reality of race factored into the way you wrote this adaptation. Well, first of all, hey, Banka. On the other side of the country. I couldn't agree more with what Bank just set, which is that, you know, in addition to. The great pleasure and satisfaction of, of that, too, and a half hours that experience that the that we and the audience have in the theater that two and a half hours, the opportunity for conversations after that. And particularly conversations with and among teachers and students, we do any New York City, public school student can see this play for ten dollars. And we do a we've been doing throughout the school year. I think it may be coming to an end now at least for this year. Special student matinees where the entire theater, fourteen hundred people, our students on some of whom have never seen a play before. So this vol experiences is new and exciting for them. But just going back to your question. There are new conversations that we can have now in addition to the conversations we had back when I was reading the book in school. I wonder also about the kind of audience that you reach with this production in terms of not just school kids, which is fantastic that you can fill a matinee with fourteen hundred teenagers and expose them to Broadway, Jeff Daniels. The active place Atticus Finch talked about some of the people that he hopes the play will really impact, here's part of what he told MSNBC's. Nicole Wallace, every night, you walk out there. And we pin the ears back of basically white America. Liberal. Merica comes in, and they go we had no idea. It was that tough, and it's a slap in the face. It's a wake-up call. That's Jeff Daniels. Speaking to Nicole Wallace on MSNBC banking about that aspect that, that you may be reaching people in this audience who consider themselves woke white people, and that this may still kind of really punch them, right? Between the eyes. I it's. It's been an interesting thing I mean, ever since I well prior to this. But Ferguson really was like one of the top enough points when, when white people started to really vocalise all no, I didn't realize it was this bad or, or that things with this, blatant. And, and a lot of people, including myself were, we were not shocked at how bad things that how how little was acknowledged seen as real amongst amongst lot of white people. And so, again, getting to be able to do this place. There's a there's a, a place every night where we get to come to meet, and discuss these thing, the audience, and the people on the stage and you look out there, and this, a lot of white people with disposable income and, and with the ability to come see this production, who have said this before, who have, you know, most likely my, my share we share Saint politics points of. Views but still benefactors from this very racist system. So there's kind of this weird economy that, that exist that we, we know but to varying levels, but it's still in its prevalent all our lives, whether we're the benefactors or subject to. So it's been interesting. It's been very interesting. I'm Joshua Johnson. You're listening to one A. We should note that not all of you who wrote in our fans of tequila Mockingbird. Here's another message we received fair warning. It contains a little bit of a spoiler. So if you're not familiar with the story of tequila Mockingbird, or the give us about thirty five seconds before you turn the volume backup having said that here's what Jim left in our inbox, Jim from Washington DC when I first saw to Mockingbird it move me thinking about it. However, I realized another white savior movie, which Atticus Finch save. Today. But if you think about it the day, actually isn't saved. The black man who is completely innocent winds up not only going to jail being convicted, but then dead, I talked with some people who actually forget that the day never got saved. Jim, thanks for sharing your thoughts with us Aaron Sorkin. We got a number of comments about this kind of white savior, trope. Chris in Hamlin. New York emailed, I've always thought that to kill a mocking bird was a feel good story for my fellow white, folk, the focus of the stories on the white lawyer, who's trying to do the right thing in the face of social opposition, William Faulkner's intruder in the dust till something like the same story, and African American being unjustly accused of a capital crime in a small southern town, but gives the African American defendant agency in his defense. His white lawyer merely acting under his direction. Aaron what about that, this white savior trope as it might relate to this story? What do you think? It's a very big subject very important subject. So I make if you an answer that's longer than you wanted. Feel rock me anytime you want. I get it completely. In the play I let me say in the play is opposed to the movie. There are a number of white savior things from the book that, that were kind of turned on their head for instance. My favorite scene in the book, growing up my favorite scene in the movie, and I would watch this. When I watched the movie, I'd watch this scene. I got a lump in my throat. I'd get goosebumps, and it's a lot of people's favorite scene is the end of the trial Atticus has lost in the entire courtroom as cleared out Atticus putting stuff back in his briefcase. The courtroom is cleared out, except for everybody upstairs in the balcony in what was called the colored section they're all Atticus turns around to realize, they're all standing silently in respect, and gratitude and Atticus, walks by the Reverend Sykes, who.

Tony Awards Preview

"Hi, everybody. It's Peter Travers than welcome to our special popcorn Tony award show. Now, I've gotta say, before we get into the nominees about who will win and who should win. This is been the most amazing year in Broadway history. It has made over two billion dollars at the box office that never happened. And why is it? I think it's Hollywood heat everybody from TV from movies from us. It wants to be on Broadway. They wanna be on that stage. You got this year. Kylo Ren and driver on Broadway. You have Walter, white Bryan, Cranston, there, Jeff Daniels who played Harry done in too, dumb and dumber movies. They're all fighting to be best, dramatic actor, what kind of stuff is happening on Broadway. Well, let's start with the major categories, and I'm gonna start with best musical the nominees are ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Beetlejuice remember that movie Haiti's town, the prom, and Tootsie. You remember that movie too? Well. I think the winner is Haiti's town. It's a rigid. It's basically the myth of Orpheus ritzy, but it's got a score by a woman named Naess Mitchell who doesn't come from Broadway, at all and kind of revolutionizes it. So what would happen what could spoil the fun? There's a little musical called the prom. It's really it's totally original. It's about these bunch of Broadway veterans, and they're really hard bitten, and they're not getting any press, and they decide to go to Indiana and help, a lesbian high school student take her girlfriend to the prom. That's it. How good is it? It's really good. And in terms of the Hollywood connection, Ryan Murphy, went to see it fell in love with it, and he's making a movie of it. So how about that? Then we have best play the Ferryman choirboy, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus. What the constitution means to me an ink. I'm telling you people, the Ferryman is got to be a movie soon. It's an Irish play. It's about the troubles, and in on a stage. We get to see an entire family deal with violence deal with their own feuds. We've got babies onstage. We've got live alive goose. We have everything there's nothing like I don't think there's any competition for it at all except there was a snub, the most successful play in Broadway history. That's not a musical is to kill among bird, and for some reason, the Tony nominee said, let's not nominated what I want. Answer on that one best revival of a play. Arthur, Miller's all my sons the boys in the band, burn this torch song and the Waverley gallery. I think Arthur Miller's all my sons which brought a net. Bending back to Broadway is a show that he wrote in one thousand nine hundred forty seven a bout a guy who was manufacturing airplane, parts and was to rush to do it. And so the planes crashed and killed pilots during the war. We live in the world of Boeing. Now, how timely could this be? So I think that's really up there. And I in terms of seeing a show that by playwright Arthur Miller who says, let's deal with the world we live in this one really, really did it then we have bible of musical. This is easy, because there's only two there's Oklahoma Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and kiss me. Kate. Of course, they were both movies. We saw Oklahoma with Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones in the fifties. But kiss me, Kate is done in a traditional way. Kelli o'hara's in it, Oklahoma is directed by guide named Daniel fish who find darkness. We're Rogers and Hammerstein only found light. It's a revelation to watch this. It's not the Oklahoma you've ever remembered, and it sung in the kind of country western way, look, if you ever get to see this on Broadway or win a tours get there get there quick. Okay. Okay. Best actor in a musical. And so, we'll do alphabetically Brooks as Mantas in the prom, Derrick Baskin and ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Alex Brightman and Beetlejuice. Remember when Michael Keaton had their part, Damon down, oh in Rogers and Hammerstein, Oklahoma. And send Tino fun Tanna into okay? The favorite is Tino, Tanna who is playing the part that destined Hoffman immortalized in the movie in the nineteen eighties. But what Centeno Tanna doesn't remember him on TV in crazy ex girlfriend like I'm saying everybody's from TV, or he does so much more. He sings as a man sees a woman, he does physical comedy does everything but stand on his hat. And I say, you know, who's out there that can spoil the win for Santino Tanna. And my answer is no one because this is one of the great performances you'll ever see on a musical, comedy stage. He's the winner. Best actress in a play Benning in Arthur, Miller's all my sons, Laura, Donnelly, in the Ferryman. Elaine may in the Waverley gallery, Janet mcteer in Bernhardt hamlet, Laurie Metcalf in Hillary Clinton, and Heidi Shreck in what the constitution means to me. Okay. Elaine may doesn't win this Tony. You're going to hear from me. She's eighty seven years old. She's returned to Broadway. After decades to play the part of a woman fighting Alzheimer's, and everything is no perfect about what she's done. She started with Mike Nichols doing comedy. She was starring in movies of like the new leaf directed things like the heartbreak kid. She's just one of the best actors I've ever seen anywhere. And if she loses and, you know, I feel bad for an bending because if Elaine may wasn't here this year, I think she would be the winner, but come on. Attention must be paid people. And I also wanna talk about a snub how. How does Glenda Jackson who won the Tony last year for three women returned to Broadway as King Lear? We talk about the age of hashtag metoo and time's up Glenda. Jackson is playing king. Lear gets rave reviews and the Tony committee says we're not gonna nominate her now. No, we're paying attention. And we're gonna come back and get you our best actress in a musical. Stephanie, j block in the share show Caitlyn Kanoun in the prom Beth level, in the prom, Eva nobles, ADA in Haiti's town, and Kelley O'Hara and kiss me cake. Stephanie j block who is that theater veteran is playing share in a way that sometimes she's more share than share. You might think this is just an escapist show thing to know she finds the character of who she is share shows up at this show often does numbers with her, and pus share. There's who's a bigger Hollywood. Name who is coming to Broadway with the show about herself. It takes three actresses to play here. But Stephanie j block plays the central one. And she plays the hell out of it. So she has just got to win. I'm sorry, people. All right. Best featured actress in a play for new of Flanagan in the Ferryman seal, you keep. And Bolger into kill a Mockingbird. Christine Nelson, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Julie white and Gary sequel to Titus andronicus and Ruth Wilson and King Lear people if you see if you see to kill among bird, and you should seal, you Keenan Bolger is very controversial because she's playing scout scout in the book and in the movie remember is in eight or nine year old girl. A C Keenan Bolger is in her forties. And yet, what she finds in this character who grew up to be Harper who wrote this novel is the heart and soul of the peace. So I'm telling you people this, this has got to happen. See Keenan Bolger remember that name best featured actor in a play birdie Carville and ink, Robin to hasten boys in the band getting Glick into kill a monkey bird, Brandon your Ranna wits in burn this Benjamin Walker in Arthur Miller's. All my sons birdie, Carville in ink. Those of us, those of you who actually went to Broadway couple of years ago and saw of any kind of a musical where you were shocked at a man playing a woman, you saw birdie, Carville in Matilda, and he played this woman, this horrible headmistress, and now he's playing Rupert Murdoch. So every who in Hollywood, who in politics would anyone hasn't been in an Rupert Murdoch publication or paper and who hasn't been rolled over the coals in it that performance and in London when he played it in one and Olivia ward, he had to play it in front of Rupert Murdoch. It's just an incredible job. I wanna talk a little about the snubs in this category. The non nominees there isn't actor named Bengal Arghanab into Killa mugging bird who plays Tom Robinson. He is the black man who is on trial for raping a white woman, a crime never committed. And he's defended. By Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch when Aaron Sorkin adapted Harper Lee's novel to the stage. He did it so that he could expand the role of the black characters as he did here. And again, the Tony committee, decided only to nominate the white actors from tequila, Mockingbird ignoring the two black actors who are just brilliant in their roles. You people you're going to get called on the carpet. You need to all right? Best featured actress in a musical, Lilli Cooper in Tootsie, amber, gray and Haiti's town Sarah, styles Tootsie, alley stroke, or in Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and Mary, Testa in Rogers, and Hammerstein Oklahoma there, something totally remarkable that happened this year in stroke, and Oklahoma. This is a woman who when she was two years old was in an automobile crash, and was never able to walk again. And now on Broadway playing eight oh Anne who is like the sexual. Time bomb in Oklahoma, the one who sings, I can't say, no, the part went to Allie. Stroke, she plays it in a wheelchair and you would think that's inspiring enough. But when you watch her play at you, forget the wheelchair exists, and you're watching her take over the stage like Dolly Parton. She, it's just an amazing thing to watch and it works on so many levels. So I wanna be there when she wins that Tony, and I want to be standing up and applauding and going Bravo. She deserves all right. Best featured actor in a musical Andre shields in Haiti town and a groups Luccin. That's a good name into Patrick page in Haiti's town germy, pope in into proud the life and times of the temptations and Ephraim Sykes ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations, the favorite, the one, I think will win is under the shields and Haiti's town. He's seventy three years old. He stands on that stage is the narrator in like a silver suit. In total control of body and every movement and pulls you in till you're memorized. Your mesmerizing you not take your eyes off of hundred shields. This is a veteran actor who needs to get this Tony. But what if he didn't who would go to there's a young actor named Jeremy pope who plays Eddie kendricks in the into proud the life and times of the temptations? And who does he's playing a difficult man. One of the most difficult of the temptations. But one of the most talented as well. He's also nominated this year as best actor in a in a play in choir, boy, this is to me, the brightest newcomer that you will see on the stage and you're going to see him everywhere, stage movies television. It's just the beginning. So if you get to see this, you're going to be able to tell your friends, I was there win. Okay. Best director of a play Rupert Gould for Inc. Sam Mendes for the Ferryman Bartlett. Fair for to kill a mocking bird Ivo von Hosver for network, and George C Wolfer Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Sam Mendis in the Ferryman this play. Does a job on stage that equal to his first movie which was American Beauty, which you may remember won the best picture? Oscar and once Mendis the Oscar as best director.

Jeff Daniels ('To Kill a Mockingbird') on playing Atticus Finch

"Hi, everybody. I'm Peter Travers. And this is popcorn where we tell you. What is popping in the culture? And my guest today. Jeff Daniels who has multiple wards and the way I looked at it, he's too modest to say he's just been nominated for Tony Ward as best actor for tequila Mockingbird on Broadway, which is totally deserved. I don't even have to blow smoke with you. You know, I actually loved this, you know. Well, it's very nice. I think too. So are you just completely in Newark to all this now? It's you have your Emmys. You've been nominated for Tony before for God of carnage. Does it? What impact does getting nominated for an award have, you know, it's, it's? It is an honor to be nominated because I've been there when I wasn't and, and this was a big season for drama big season for drama Broadway, there, a lot of them and, you know, Mockingbird didn't get in as best new play did that make you stomp around for a couple of minutes when they will stop arounds big phrase. But, but it it goes to whatever the reasons are it goes to show that it's not automatic. You can't just go on, then I'll get nominated, and it's still you wake up in the morning. Bill ness. You wanna be invited to the big party, you know, and, and it is an honor to be there. And I, I noticed that when I was nominated for God carnage. I was probably the first big award. I'd ever been Emmys came later and all that. But I was in that room in Radio City Music hall, and I looked around at all the great work. That was all in one place. And these are just the people were nominated. There's other work that didn't get in that was, and you just feel I'm just glad to get it took it to the party. You really now anything after that, you know, would be great, but it really is to get in. Take something to well, and there's something about the Broadway the theater community, and I'm speaking to you as theater guy. Because back in Michigan. You have your own gross theater. You know this is something that matters to you. And you have even before we start talking about to kill a Mockingbird. You've signed on for one year doing this show. Nobody does anymore all stars. Don't know. Working after's, who need the job or in Evan Hansen, their second year and all of that. So it is, you know, it used to be what was done. Jason Robards Brian Dennehy comes to mind. Fonda Henry Fonda did mister Roberts for over a year looked at up league Cobb death of a salesman. Pretty sure over a year those guys were good. But that was kind of expected, you know that's what you did. And you and it's a big long commitment, but it's not that long when it's Atticus Finch, it's not that long when it's to kill a Mockingbird is not that long when you see what this play, and this production does to an audience night after night after night after night to get to be Atticus Finch, on Broadway six months, wouldn't have been enough so was happy to sign for your, and I'm interested to see what happens to the performance. Over the course of your I'm six months in now, and it's changed. It's deepened and it's gotten smarter and more, it's just gotten better. And so I'm interested to see where it is at the end when that happens when you have a director whose, they always use the phrase in the theater, okay after rehearsal. We've now frozen this show. This is now the way we do it, but can any actors really do that, because you are discovering something he's actor you can do it. You call it the mule on the trail performance going down the Grand Canyon. The mule didn't even have to look, you know, the meal just goes down. And then I do it this way. And then I get to here, and I do it that way. And you think about where you're going to eat throughout the whole show. I've seen that. I have ten that's the trap, you can get into that. You can literally your mind, just floats away and your thing and you go and stay here. Stay here stay here because, you know it so Bart. Shared the director Mockingbird. Basically, he's saying this is going to move around. I expect you to move it around expect you to explore a little bit here and there. You gotta you gotta have enough sense of story and experience to know when you're, I think Ellen all called stuffing the dog when you're just suddenly we've added four minutes to the show and it's probably you. You got it. You gotta is what you're doing. Is this thing you found in month two? And does it lead to something else? And now as a better place or do we need to go back here to where you gotta kinda gotta stay in the lane. But you get to move around and Bart has given us permission to do that. But I think this cast is really don't agree job of serving story. So they're in while it moves and changes a little bit. It always seems to be pointed in the direction of serving story, not some individual. Whereas my light kind of thing, not in this cast, but what I noticed when I was at this show was that there are people that I had seen at the theater before because of this property because of what Harper Lee wrote, there are suddenly because we read it in school, you know, but it wasn't work and there's just something about it. And watching, what Aaron Sorkin has done to take what Harper Lee did. And to update it without updating it. But just. Making something that's going on in this play speak to us. Now you had a lot of controversy with that in the beginning. You know there were people doing you can't around with the, the state, who was there say is the lawyer for the estate one person had some issues with an early draft. I think he ended up with twenty two drafts. By the end of it. So pretty good chance some of that stuff would have gone away anyway. But, but in whatever it, we got it settled and the risks for us. I thought once the lawsuit went went away was three adults playing the kids. Are we going to get away with that? Are we going to overcome Gregory Peck? And the last third third act of this thing, basically. Deviates is this is a play based on the book. And now we're gonna put out of his through something that the move in either the movie nor the book put him through in by putting him through that, that I think, is where Aaron was able to relate it to today. Is there goodness in people that we can rely on will the better angel in all of us? Rise to the top in twenty nineteen that isn't necessarily true. And I think you're on was forcing Atticus to face that, that sometimes you can't just wait for them to do the right thing. No, there's not much and Atticus does some things in this play that aren't very Gregory Peck. Yeah, there's flaws in him. But it makes it just so more mature engaging because I'm seeing somebody with human flaws doing this. Yeah. And, and to be more than fair to pack who only won an Oscar for it was a different time, early sixties. And it was from the point of view of a young scout nine years old. Whatever she is in the book looking up her great father. So he really kind of stayed up on a pedestal throughout the book and pretty much for the movie and we weren't we were a small town. Lawyer gets paid in vegetables and trying to raise two kids and he handles land dispute service agreements for closures inning. And right will, and then the judge comes over to his house in his life changes. That's how we approached it. But do you feel competitive in any of these awards with other actors that are nominated in your category? In other words, you and Bryan Cranston. Now just cold staring. Each other because everybody was nominated wants to win. Everybody wants to make the speed. Everybody wants to take on that toll because it's called it anyone who's ever stepped on stage. Once that it's there's, it's so special it, it's I've never been nominated for an Oscar, but I started in the feeder, high school and community college, and my purples theater companies twenty years old and off Broadway. And coming back to Broadway. Keep returning to it. And now forty two years later, you get to Atticus Finch you get to do the role of a lifetime on Broadway in the theater, that's a lot to be proud of. So this sit there with, with Brian and Patty and, and all the other guys. Adam driver all them. Yeah. The kid Jeremy pope. But you know, it's a great group and you're part of a lot of great work that competitive thing, nobody scores the most points. These things we're doing five different things really, really well, go back to the day that you decided you were going to be Atticus Finch on Broadway. Was there any terror about that ultimate decision that had nothing to do with you committing for year because it's one of the great roles it's a great character? And despite the fact that we see flaws in him, there's virtue in him to me, as watching actors all my life and reviewing them the hardest thing to plays virtue. There's, you know how do you play good and make good interesting? And you get and maybe Atika struggle to remain. Good to remain take the high road and there's a bit of a struggle. This is a helps that yeah, but that's his aim because while he sitting on that porch this world in the south in nineteen thirty four in Alabama KKK's there. He's not initially he's kind of letting it happen. He's not going. He's not out there trying to change it. He's not carrying plan. No, he's I thought that was really interesting. Certainly where he starts. He knows that if he takes this case to defend Tom Robinson. And he sits in front of a jury of white Christian farmers men. He knows what he's going, this is no longer just executing will or foreclose and, and he's avoided that just raised his kids. I'm just raising my kids without a wife. I'm raising my kids, and he knows that will change thing unpleasant, things will be sent to us, and it's going to go beyond that you're gonna have the KKK come up and visit you on your porch and go, what are you doing? And I did a lot of research to kind of understand that kind of just keep your head down and don't get involved and stay out of trouble as family and just raise your kids and don't get involved. There was a lynching last Tuesday night, we missed you there. We got another one Friday, common and Atticus has to either say, no, I'm not or tied up that evening. Bob can't make. And there's a lot of there are a lot of people, especially in today's America that are don't wanna look go wanna see don't want to. I. I don't wanna know about Russia. I don't wanna know any, we'll do errands kind of speak into that, that American that decent honest, hardworking American lose just doing this, and it's not enough to just look the other way not now wasn't for Atticus and it isn't for us. Now there's denial and there's a combination and enabling. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And that's why I think people sit there watching this like this, you know, this is somehow speaking to us right now involve you gonna get. Yeah. Yeah. What was what was your first encounter with this story? Did you read the book? I did you the first encounter really was? I probably had seen the movie as a kid. I don't remember we didn't read the book, we read, Lord of the flies and farewell to arms, which wasn't on the public school curriculum where I was at Aaron said, do you wanna play? Atticus finch. And I didn't blink. Absolutely. I think partly because the last five years ten years now. I've been taking chances are been. Challenging myself doing things that I wouldn't that other people think I can do, but I don't know how to do. So say yes.

"But then you you're, you're reminded of the stakes right? So like that joy box is, is super important and looking at it. Maybe there's a chance know this, those no chance, it's like a lot of that's what happens during because for a great deal of the play Atticus is surprisingly winning. So that means he's winning over those jury members. So like, who are those people who start out one way, and then come swayed, you know, and then and then it goes a different way. So that that's that's interesting to me to, to, to picture and also engage with that box in when do they become swayed. What happens in the play that does it? How am I surprised that they that lease twelve white and most like very racist? Jurors are starting to be open a little bit by by this argument because his presenting. So how does that? How do I see that when I'm looking at the? Getting I'm curious about the music for folks who haven't seen the play. There's a guitar player on one side of the stage, and it's an organ, an organ on, on the other side of stage and they sort of. Weave in and out, but they do something to the narrative, and I'm not sure what it is. What do you think it is? I call it. The lubricant. When we did we did two workshops of the show, and we didn't have the music. And I remember when we first got the music and people were saying how, how how's rehearsal going go? What we just got the music and all of a sudden, for me, the show came alive because there are so many scenes and the show kind of bleeds into each other the scenes bleed into each other. And the music is so helpful in making all cohesive. And I think it's also very helpful for narration and our journey when we're when we're around the town, because there isn't a physical town really, it's just the wall, and it helps it helps amp us up. And, and it psychologically potent too. And I think it really it locates you in the south like you almost immediately are like this doesn't sound like what I'm familiar with. And then it, it did so much work that bar talked a lot where he was like. I just, I don't want it to feel like a bunch of New York actors with southern accents doing to kill Mockingbird. I want us to have a window into this town in nineteen thirty four. And I think when the musicians came in and Adam started writing the music, I was like, oh, I for the first time, I sort of see where we are definitely places. And it was like the museum to see the music being written live in front in front of us, at least for me because I'm not used to that. And Adam was like such a talented musical group Allen, who plays tar Kim Grigsby musical director and just to see them all form this other structure to the play, and then as an integrated into, like what we do. It's, it's yeah, it's, it's amazing. Also, when we started previews that him at the very end that everybody sings wasn't even a part of the show like that was something that came later where they felt like need something to sort of tie every up. And so that was like an abuse. Beautiful edition like I probably the second week or the end of the first week of previews that the music just like elevated the whole experience. I think. My guests have been sick in boulder, getting Glick and Gabon gay economic. They star in the Tony nominated Broadway production.

Inside Aaron Sorkin's 'Mockingbird' story

"Playwright and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin says he was eager to adapt. Harper Lee's to kill a Mockingbird for Broadway. But he still had some serious. Reservations about the job. I said yes, knowing really it was a suicide mission because people have a very special relationship to the novel. And it's a great book. What could I do but make it less than than what it was? And the acting future of Jesse smollet is still unknown. But his character on empire just made TV history all that up on the frame. Welcome to the frame. I'm John horn when Tony nominations are revealed next week to kill a Mockingbird will likely get a lot of attention almost certainly for Jeff Daniels who plays Atticus Finch, but the adaptation by earned Sorkin was far from easy. Scott Rudin secured, the rights to the patient and got Harper Lee's personal approval of Sorkin. It's the playwright. But then things started to go awry following Lee's death three years ago the estate eventually sued to stop the production. We'll get to the lawsuit in a bit. But when I spoke with Sorkin about to kill a Mockingbird. He I told me why his first draft didn't work. I simply try to do. No harm. I I took the most essential scenes that you need to tell the story, and I stood them up and dramatize them and the whole thing felt like a greatest hits album done by tribute band. And I turned it in and Scott who usually at that point. Would meet with me for days and ended up with hundreds of notes to go back and do the second draft with he met with me for less than thirty minutes and gave me two notes. And the second note was the one that changed everything. What Scott said was that Atticus can't be advocates from the beginning of the play to the end of the play. He's got a change. That's what protagonist does a protagonist has a flaw protagonist put through something and changes as a result. And I thought well, of course, Scott's right? That has to be what happens in a play. I wonder how Harper Lee got away with an Abacus who's the same. At the beginning of the book is at the end of the book, how Horton Foote got away with an Atticus in the movie who's the same at the beginning of the movie is the is at the end of the movie. And that's when I realized that advocates isn't the protagonist in the novel or the movie scout is she's the one who changes her flaws that she's young and the changes that she loses someone for innocence. And while I wanted scout. And dill to remain protagonists in the play. I wanted advocates to be the central protagonist. I wanted him to be put through something. I wanted him to have a flaw on. I wanted him to change is a result. And what happened in that moment was that? I simply stopped thinking about the word adaptation that it. No longer was my goal to gently swallow the novel in bubble wrap and transfer it to a Broadway stage that I was going to write a new play taking the circumstances that Harper Lee put on the table. And that's when things started to take off. So I'm gonna ask you this. Obviously, it's a period piece. But I'm gonna talk about it's modern relevance of which there is a tremendous amount. What was happening in the world as you were adapting or reimagining, but ever we're gonna do whatever verb are gonna use to describe what you were doing with harp. Elise novel to make it a play. Yeah. Well, what was happening in the world. Was Trump was elected president Charlottesville was happening. Charlottesville became an important touchdown in this. And I'll tell you why Atticus in the in the novel. This was in thinking about what flaw can Atticus half. Does he go from being a bad lawyer to a good lawyer, a bad father to a loving father a racist believing injustice in a quality, and obviously no on all three? What I realized was that Atticus already had a flaw. Harper Lee gave him one. It's just that. When we were learning the book, we were taught that it was a virtue advocates says throughout the book that there's goodness in every single chicks, go get along better with all kinds of folks never really understand it until you consider things from his point of view. Climates out of his skin woke rounding he excuses. Bob, Buell's racism by saying the man just losses WPA job. You know, it's he excuses. Mrs Dubose is racism by she recently stopped taking her medicine or morphine. He excuses. The town's racism. This is the deep south things happen slower here, you know, give gift people time and thinking about all that at the same time at Charlottesville happened in it started. What Atticus was saying was starting to sound to me like there were fine people on both sides. Right. And that's when the bells rang, and and I was really able to kind of go from a walk to a gallop. We're talking with earned Sorkin about his ad obtain of Harper Lee's novel to kill a Mockingbird. I wanna play a scene between Atticus Finch and Tom Robinson who's been accused of raping a white woman. And the story can't tell you how to plead, but I can't. And I must give you my best advice. You won't be my lawyer. Very less thing. I won't the world be your lawyer right now negro man, what teenage girl wouldn't be going in with a win hands. But I'm compelled to defend us an officer of the court, and in that capacity of taken Salamo to give him a best council, which is that you cannot and you must not lead guilty and go to jail for a crime that you did not could not commit. So how do you figure out a way to dramatize what Atticus is going through? And how he's changing the way that he sees an excuses behavior through the play. What tricks? What are the things that you are able to do with the text and through new dialogue and putting dialogue and other characters mouse, they get you to that place where he can evolve for me, a big part of Attica ses journey in this play is going from someone who says, I know these people these are our, friends and neighbors sure some of them may be stuck in the old ways. But there are none of them that are so far gone. They would send an obviously innocent man to the electric chair, and he discovers that he doesn't know his friends and neighbors that to me does a really good job of of reflecting. I think how a lot of us no matter where you are on the political or ideological spectrum the way, a lot of us have felt these last few years that we thought we knew our fellow Americans. But we didn't we were wrong about our friends and neighbors, and that's one of the reasons why this play based on a book that sixty years old that takes place ninety years ago feels so much like today.

Matthew McConaughey | Career Arc

"Is an episode about the the life in the career and the and the essence of Matthew mcconaughey, who is of course, starring in a new movie harmony, Curran's new movie the beach bum which is out in theaters right now, and we're gonna be talking about that movie quite a bit. But before we do that we're going to do what we always do on the show. This is only the second time we've done it. We're going to analyze different stages of an actor or actress or directors career, and we're gonna talk about the breakthrough moment and the personal pinnacle for each of the three of us. And then we'll talk about the big movie that's out right now. So guys before we get started. I wanna talk. A little bit about just your personal connection to Matthew mcconaughey who has been in our lives for a long time perhaps longer than I even realized when I was looking at this guy's career. Amanda, what is your your general relationship to Makaay? Well, like his career goes in phases. And we're gonna talk a lot about I actually don't know how much we'll talk about the two thousands. But you talk about it, Matthew mccown. Hey starred he was a rom com. Idle in the two thousands, and that's a very interesting time in romantic comedies and say not so interesting workwise, but in terms of career arc very interesting time in Matthew mcconnahey career. And that's kind of how I was introduced to him or how he became a part of my life about that. And you about Matthew mcconaughey, but I was very conversant in those romantic comedies. And then I was a culture blogger to during the Kanazawa. So. It's in terms of watching an actor or a public figure reinvent themselves and have a kind of public narrative that we're all participating in real time. He's a really prime example for me. I can't really think of him without thinking of just this not even transformation, but a return to self that he experienced would you say the time as a flat circle, Amanda. Oh my God. Yeah. I would have to at this point. 'cause you all do so often, rob. What about you? I suspect that your your true relationship with with Matt Mack, which is something no in calls him. But I'm gonna call him that occasionally Amish. Micheli? What's your relationship to McConnell, 'cause I I assume it started before Amandus? Yeah. I mean, it started very simply as like I just want to listen to this person say word rest of my life. I mean, I do think he has this my favorite voice like in Hollywood, and possibly, you know, the larger celebrity sphere. I mean, I'm pretty sure my introduction him like most people my age, our age was dazed and confused and just every word that came out of his mouth just sounded beautiful for lack of any other way to put it I think following his career subsequently. I I wanted to ask you guys like the McConnell San's that term sort of implies like a really deep valley in the middle of his career. Like, Matthew mcconnahey is sort of a guy when I started following and writing about entertainment like following the arc of an actor or a celebrity in the low points in the high points like I was always kind of confused by the McConnell, and ideas, like what was he recovering from like, he doesn't really have. A Geely in that sense. Like, I don't think there's one moment. That's like a terrible moment. And it's like literally ninety seconds ago. I remembered that he was once a rested for playing Bongos today. Kid. That's the thing that happened. Right. What a like that will that wasn't the low point. But like, I was I was he's one of the first actors who I sort of perceived as having this media driven sort of rise and fall arc to him. And I could never quite figure out what caused the fall. I guess I bet you have a lot of thoughts say rob have you seen goes girlfriend pass? And or I haven't walls gold, and or forces of nature, and at you know, the back half from two thousand five to two thousand nine he's in a ladder leading man roles that are tough, and they're not gonna romantic comedies, and those are not. In any way, the essence of McConnell as we have come to understand him. And it's an interesting arc- because he basically twenty years later returns to himself. It's an it's an arc that I know flat, circle, blah, blah, blah. I get it. But it really is the Mikan science. I think more means that he. Finds his essence again as opposed to coming from some valley. It's like a a a new expression or somebody say, the, original expression. Will I think it's also about what we deem to be quality versus an meaningful artistic choices versus things that are pop or frivolous. I think particularly in that period that you're talking about Amanda, you basically two thousand five two thousand four Saharan to for the money things kinda start to go a little south there. And he's just making a lot of stuff that is moderately successful. But just not very good. And you know, when he comes back with the Lincoln lawyer and Bernie in killer Joe, and we'll talk about that period seems to turn the ship, and he starts working with filmmakers that he'd worked within the past or people who seem interesting in on the forefront of something. And so I think the McConnell San's, rob, I guess for lack of a better phrases just meant he started doing good stuff again. And I would argue towards the end of this podcast. We're actually in a phase where with the exception of the movie we're going to be talking about at the end. He's actually made. More bad stuff in the last five years than good stuff, and maybe more bad stuff than he did in that fallow, period. But nevertheless, let's go back to the very beginning. Rob you wanted to talk about about days as as sort of breakthrough. So what is it about David Waterson that that enraptured you? I mean, I feel first of all this is there is no need to overanalyze him that movie like this moment. Like he's in days and confused, really ten minutes. Maybe. You know, like just jump right? Like his delivery of the line. I get older they stay the same age. It's like this perfect mixture of like, casual and formal that's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older they stay same age. He knows the character knows how good align. It is the actor knows how good align. It is. Like, you take a little step forward. Like in that exact moment. Like, I realized that for the first time that he's wearing like salmon colored pants. Ted Nugent t-shirt. It's just this this beautiful transcendent moment that doesn't need to be belabored. But let's does this guy as a star like just right in that moment. And I the other days that I love rewatching he pulls up alongside another car like a burger joint and the two guys in the other car go off Christ immediately like they can't stand him. But the the driver of the other car a young red headed lady who I believe is Marissa Rabin easy is smitten with him. No, I got my own car. Thank listen to stick the car with now get in with us. But that's all right worry about that later. I will see their. You tell them about the new fiesta tap inning at the moon tower. There's going to be fresh kegs. And it's just I would just I would just follow this man, anywhere. And I watching it again like I feel there's a version of dazed and confused like the studio like focus groups like diluted belabored version of the movie that feels compelled to have an actual plot. And like a moral would make his character not like the villain, but like the cautionary tale at the worst case scenario like you don't wanna end up like this guy, actually like dazed is one of the things that makes it great is like it's a high school movie where at least some of the actors look like they could conceivably be in high school. And so it makes it hard to tell like how much older he's supposed to be than the rest of the people. But I I love the way that like his job is working for the city. Like he says that several times doesn't elaborate at all. But like it's kind of he's he's he's kind of lame like part of what makes Ben Affleck's CARA. Actor lame is that he shouldn't be there anymore. Like, he I think he like flunked a he got held back a few grades or something like he shouldn't be hanging out with these people anymore, and it should theoretically be the same for him. But it's not. But even at the end like when they're on a football field, and he gives the speech about like, it's about living L I V. I N like you can take that as like really profound. You can take that as kind of pathetic. Like, there's a version of the movie where like the plot is like the football player trying to decide whether to sign like the promise not to take drugs or whatever. Like that moment. Could be the football player realizing I don't actually want to end up like this person, you know. And if I agreed not fuck up like even twenty percent of the time, and I won't end up like this person. But like the actual movie can't bear to do that to McConnell. Hey, and like McConnell as performance is too. Good to even make you feel like even a little bit pathetic. Like, it's just it's a very fine line and just uncomplicated -ly beautiful thing. But like when you think about it, it's it's just. It's perfect. He's unquestionably one of our most beautiful statutory, rapists. He's just it's amazing. It's amazing how willing we are to forget that that is literally the point of that character is that he is a predator. And it's like, oh what a charming predator? You know, that is really his power like this is the first significant role that he had and it's it's one of his best roles. It's it's like communicates. A lot about the kind of actor that he is even though he's as you said, rob onscreen for so so little Amanda, what did you think of days? Yeah. I agree with you. It's just kind of an instant stardom. I was on a podcast recently talking about Pretty Woman and the power of that movie and a lot of ways it's just you're watching. Julia Roberts become a star in real time. And it's so rare to see someone in one of their first movies just like before we formed. It's kind of like, okay. You know, you are and sodas the director, and you know, how to be on screen, and like I understand the qualities that you're going. Bring to your other roles like you have just you've got star quality from the gecko. And like he clearly does like dazed and confused. It's kind of his first movie or his first big movie. But also definitely the statement for the rest of his career, or at least the successful parts of his career and people don't often figure it out that early. It's true. It's notable though that it takes a few years for him to find real stardom. You know, even though I think anybody who saw it is inconvenient came out. And it was not a huge box office hit. There's something going on with that guy who is that guy. And then he appears in significant roles, but not necessarily the lead role in angels in the outfield, which I'm sure we all know and love, Bobby Wagner. Our producer baseball fan. I'm certain he's seen it Texas chainsaw massacre of the next generation, which quite bad. He has a small role in boys on the side in which is very charming and his smaller but crucial role in Lone Star, which we've talked about on this podcast before. And then comes a time to kill now. If you're listening to the show, you probably know how much I like the John Grisham adaptations of the nineteen nineties. This was a this was a sub genre that Hollywood thrived on over the years. End of the pelican brief is one of your favorites. Pelican brief the firm is one of my favorites. I'm a big fan of the client. Rob you, and I were having a grand old time recounting some of the ridiculousness of time to kill which I had forgotten and yet still feel entertained in compelled by it's actually quite gruesome story. And if you think Waterson is a sleazebag the stuff that happens in time to kill us awful. It's it's it's essentially a courtroom drama about a man who is on trial play by Samuel Jackson and his lawyer as Matthew mcconaughey, and Matthew mcconaughey is playing essentially modern day Atticus Finch person who is like a he starts the movie out of sort of a wastrel like a slick drunk southern courtroom operator. And by the end of the movie, he transforms into this morally righteous profound. Emotionally resonant figure and this movie is really weird. I cannot believe this movie exists, and so intense, and so upsetting and also features a million famous people, Sandra Bullock is essentially McConnell as right hand woman, who's helping him with the case who understands the law significantly better than mccown as character does Samuel Jackson of courses on trial. He plays Billy Ray Cobb. Kevin Spacey is the DA who comes in from out of town and his quite evil for into Frick. Her plays. Matthew kinda his secretary Oliver Platt places legal partner, Donald Sutherland, I believe plays. His father has dropped. It's like it's not as father. But like the lawyer who gave him his start and is now a drunk sort of wasted. Right. His. Protege. His father figure who has his name is is Lucien Wilbanks sheriff some perfect Girish esque southern writing the reason that I chose this movie is his breakthrough is because it's the the first time that McConnell, hey, is in the center of the frame, the whole time the movie lives and dies by him. And because of its preposterousness, I think almost any other actor wouldn't have been able to pull it off. And of course, there's a very very famous speech at the end of this movie that we're gonna listen to right now. I wanna tell you story. Close your eyes. Tell you the story. I want you. Listen to me what you listen to yourselves. Go

"For fifty percent of your first box. Thanks so much. Hi. And welcome to bebop tells the show where magic happens. What do you think of that you all send in so many great catchphrases for the Elliott adventures of Finn Caspian that I'm a little jealous? I don't have an amazing one for the show. So I thought the show where magic happens might work. But I don't know. I'm not really failing my creative self right now. Really, I did have the idea that I could call it be Bob tells the show that only happens when I successfully pull off a prank on John Eoghan messy ham and distract him. Like when I make it. So that his computer printer, no longer prints paper. But only, geez. Is that cheddar? So he's too distracted to notice that I'm using his computer because he's allergic to cheese. Plus magic happens. But that seemed to long if you have any other ideas, please let me know I could use them. Milton sh- Jonathan Jonathan please. I'm doing a show. Now, listen, something very strange has happened. Like, I said, I'm not really feeling myself. And that's because last week, I credited our listener on you with the question about volcano lava monster live and chicken nuggets. But I'm mistaken Lee did not credit her big brother Atticus with asking about laser shoes. And monorails now at his emailed me. And I love getting emails from my listeners, but this one really hit home, and I'm going to read it to you now curse UB. Bob, my cute. Little sister got credit for the question of laser shoes and monorails, and you didn't say my name. But actually, I don't care because I'm nine now and super mature. Although I still love the show Atticus. I'm glad you still love the show. And thank you for the kind words. But no. Oh, thanks for the curse. I don't know. How you did it. But ever since you curse me? I haven't been able to laugh, right? I still can laugh comes out all weird. I think the only way to get rid of this curse is to laugh a lot. So I thought we could take a teeny tiny break from the action to listen to some listener jokes. But I'm a little embarrassed. By what my laugh sounds like now. So you have to promise you won't laugh at my laugh, and we'll see if we can get this curse that Atticus put on me off and don't worry on Friday. We'll be back and you'll learn all about how Pandolfi I got out of that vogue a monster. Lynn. Gets predicament. Jonah him, please. This is serious. Okay. I is a joke from our Evan. And then take it away. I'm fight us old Seattle. And I joke to tell you. They would to Elland and they will end ways. And the name was to an one, and they will always and to set I one.

What is it moon rock? It's terrible. All right. Let me tell joke and we'll see if that breaks curse. What do you get when you shoot Jonathan messing ham into outer space like if you tied Jonathan to a rocket shot him in outerspace? What do you get? A John's delay Shen and not bad. But it's hard to crack yourself up. Okay. How about our listener? Nora tells us a joke. Joke from Nora five from Brooklyn New York in. Here's my job. What do you call a saddle with a light on it a lie about that? Oh, man. My laugh is still not coming back. All right. How about another joke? Jonathan told me this one.
