"Brian Cox playing for Aaron Brown of Las Vegas Nevada All right here is your first question The vacuum cleaner was invented in 1901 in London by a man named Hubert booth But people weren't crazy about the invention at first Why A to buy one you had to agree that anything that got vacuumed up he got to keep Being his vacuum was an enormous machine that he parked in the street in front of your house and he had to run hoses through your windows to clean your apartment or see he insisted on referring to the process of air based suction cleaning as breaking wind I think it's the middle one I think it's the hoses You're exactly right It was this enormous contraption It was portable It was on wheels right Yeah And you have to sit outside the window and open the windows And it was difficult especially if you went upstairs You captured immediately Your gift of the imagination is apparently it frightened the horses All right He had more challenges mister booth did Such as which of these ones to test his idea of the idea of sucking dirt into a filter to trap it he himself put a handkerchief over his mouth sucked on an armchair and almost choked to death on the dust B a coven of self described witches claimed to put a curse on him for trying to discredit the broomstick where C for his entire career he couldn't teach anyone to spell vacuum does it have two seas to use in a row that just doesn't sound right Well I'm drawn inside of that The vacuum or it's the fact that he put the thing over his mouth and did it So I have to decide one of those I think I'll go for the thing over his mouth That's.

"And it was a most guess who celebrity. Now my celebrity knowledge is pretty good. So I was sitting there meditating and my mantra is repeating the mentor. And at one point I was thinking for the love of God, it's Beyoncé for honestly Beyoncé. It's Beyoncé and I'm wanted to say it's Beyoncé, but I minded my business and I kept on with my meditation. But it was quite good because again, it wasn't a bad meditation, and it was good to know that I could when needed, if I get half an hour on a train, I can do it there and it felt it felt really good and I enjoyed doing it. I think picking the time when I do it has been maybe the biggest challenge. So when I speak to Julian on that Instagram Live, which I'll save. I met Emma guns on Instagram if you're not following me and you should be able to find it pretty easily. Once it's done on Monday evening on the 24th UK time, I will ask her about that and ask her about the time is because that's the only thing that has been a little bit tricky. It's kind of like wins two early wins too late. How long before I eat that kind of thing? And these are things that you do go through on the course, but it's just that kind of it's just fitting into because every day is ever so slightly different. Now, a few people have asked me about well, do I need to do a course? Do I need to go to the same place four days in a row over a weekend if you please for two hours? Can I not just do an 8 hour session? And I don't really know again, that's another question I will ask Jillian when we do our live. But one of the things about the course is that you troubleshoot it. And so one of the things that we went through in some detail was what to do if you're interrupted. What do you do if you are interrupted doing your meditation and how do you go back to it, depending on how long you've been doing it? Do you just finish, what do you do? And so we did all of that. And I was interrupted for the first time yesterday morning. So I didn't get up. I did get up at 6 30, but I sort of plotted around for a bit. And I did my meditation a little bit later. It's a full moon, and I know that Brian Cox is apparently said that there's no bearing on the full moon and people's sleep cycles, but my sleep has been interrupted this week, has not been great. And it's either because of where I am in my cycle or it's the full moon or it's both, but some things are a little bit off because my sleep since I did the meditation courses. I'm sleeping like a log, but it has been iffy this week and it's either hormones or it's the moon. I honestly can't figure out anyway, so it was a little bit later. 12 minutes into my meditation. And the doorbell goes. And it's a very early courier delivering. I hasten to add an excellent pair of shoes fit flop very kindly sent me a pair of their new vitamin FF trainers. And they are incredible, but the disruption from the delivery was a sort of a new thing to have to overcome. And I went to Gillian's technique and based on how long you've been meditating, you just go back, you do a little bit more and you come out of it in the way that you would normally. And three minutes coming out of your meditation, so where you stop repeating the mantra, but you have your eyes closed and you let your mind kind of wander as it were. That is a really important part of it. You can't just finish at 20 minutes and then go, right, I'm out on my phone. I'm making a coffee. You need a little bit of a buffer before you pick up speed and get back to what you were doing. So that's been the challenge that I've been facing. And I guess I guess that would be what you would expect in the third week of doing this is this is where all the enthusiasm begins to win, life gets in the way. And so there have been meditations where I've kind of been thinking, oh, I really want to get back to what I was doing. And I've rushed them, although you can't rush them because the time is 20 minutes. But I've looked at my watch a bit more, but my friend and actually, I'm sure many listeners don't know who this is, doctor Sam bunting. She also did the course with me. And we've been checking in with each other. Have you been going have you missed on yet? How have they been? And we've both had that experience of kind of fitting it in in the afternoon, but maybe we've still got things that we've got to do afterwards. And so we've kind of been doing that thing where we surely were done. Surely I've finished yet, but I haven't. So these are all little things to think about. If you are looking to take the course or you're curious about all of that. So. Just revisiting one last thing. Some people have said that the time is just too much of an investment. And I hope that in the previous episode where I talked about the different types of meditation and the benefits of just doing a shorter meditation if Vedic meditation in the 20 minutes twice a day isn't accessible to you for whatever reason and it might not be. There are different types. So it doesn't mean that you're excluded from including meditation in your life. Full stop, there are options. And in the previous episode, I really outlined them and hopefully quick Google search. You should be able to find what you're looking for or what might be more appropriate for you and your lifestyle and the amount of time you've got, there might be some options there that you might be able to find in some good ones that are local to you. And I guess my final thing to say is, if you want to know a little bit more about why it's so good for you, then I really do recommend Jillian's book because it is not about how to meditate. It's about why you should meditate, and it really does go into all of the different reasons and health benefits and the mental clarity and quality of sleep and all of those things. And a couple of people have messaged me this week to say that it's a very favorable price on Amazon right now. Other book shops are available, but I will put the link in the show notes. So if anyone's curious and wants to really understand what meditation can do for you, which has been proven, it's not all anecdotal, then I'll put that link in the show notes. And just a reminder that January 24th, 6 p.m. UK time, Julian, and I will be doing an Instagram Live together. So once that is recorded, I will take the link paste it into the show notes. So if you're listening to this as this goes live, the link won't be there, but if you're listening to this, later on in the day or from Tuesday, the 25th and you'll be able to find it and hopefully we'll cover lots of the gaps. And next week we'll go through final questions final thoughts and more, but if anyone else has been trying meditation, whatever that's Vedic, whether it's starting an app for a first time, whatever it might be. And you're beginning to notice. Some positive changes, then do you get in touch with me? Email me at the beauty podcast at Gmail dot com, or go into the Facebook group, there's such a lovely community of people in there. Start the post, share what you've been noticing, see if anyone else has been feeling the same..

"Was no there's no complaints. I remember that my wife, my first wife, you know, she lost children. We lost twins. And my mother came to stay and my mother had this expression, which is I'll have to do it in a Scottish accent because that's so when I was saying, you know, Carol and my wife actually, I'm worried about my mind. She said, oh, she said, you know, because the twins and losing their twins and said, oh, bran. I drop bends. Which is an extraordinary thing to see which we've all dropped babies. So this was like a common thing among women, you know, miscarriage wasn't something that was unusual. It was a it was a process that women horrifically went through, you know, horrifically. My mom was part of that, you know? So when you were born among the complications, was that the umbilical cord was wrapped around your throat. Your legs were in the wrong position. I came in as first. Yeah, and as you say, your mother was physically and emotionally scarred by the birth. Terrible. Did she talk with you about like did you how old were you when you found out? How difficult the birth was and the impact it had physically and emotionally on your mother. I kind of got it when I was really quite young. I mean, I think my mom told me eventually, after she was she'd been ill and she came home briefly, which was never the same. You know, she was she had an electric shock treatment, so a lot of her memory stuff had gone short term memory had gone long term memory was fine. So she did tell me about the book, you know, and I was kind of, you know, there was a miracle, you know, because I did have that called wrap around my neck, and I did come. I don't know what I must have thought. I mean, what I felt was. And I was the other way around as well. That's why I came because obviously I was heading towards the birth canal and I thought there's no way I can get through here. John Brown. You know? And went the other way in which was weird weird thing. Your father, when he died, you were 8 years old..

"All about power plays that will lead to more power and more money with little regard for ethics, morality, or the consequences of his actions on the lives of others. When Logan's son Kendall asked Logan if he ever thought that Kendall could take over, here's how Logan responded. You're not a killer. You have to be a killer. That wasn't a fair assessment because Kendall went on to prove he did have killer instincts as he tried to take down his father. Ruthlessness is a trait that Logan succeeded in passing on to his children. Cox won a Golden Globe for his performance in succession and is now nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award. He's written a new memoir called putting the rabbit in the hat. It begins in Dundee, Scotland, where he grew up after nearly dying at birth. That's here another clip from Succession. In this scene, way star rouco is being investigated by the Justice Department, and Logan's daughter shiv is worried because she knows about the whistleblowers and the intimidation of victims. Shiva is played by Sarah snook. Can we, I mean, can we talk? Yes. We can talk. Okay, well. We're a big company. But how bad is. What is the worst thing? Not all that bad. Health, safety, compliance. A few bad apples. What? Well, I know that isn't true. Come on, dad. Tom worked in cruise as Bill told him everything. And besides, I know that there were black ops, and I know that there was targeted intimidation of victims, and whistleblowers. NRPI. Maybe there were some salty moves. You can't just change your story. I want to keep you clean. I put Jerry in, but I can't trust her. She's optics. I need you. Listen. I didn't know about any of the. Well, you're on email. Do you know how many emails I got a day? I don't read my emails. I get the action point. I know. Schiff, the world is rough. We're on a cruise line out of some tin pot ports register and Bongo uncle harvest, and we poured millions in insurance. Did we play rough with the od union boss or some moaning mini repeat litigant? I don't know. There was a quarter of a century ago, a lot of it. So yes, I fought for you and your brothers. But you will not find a piece of paper that makes you ashamed of me. Okay? Well, the government does have an unbelievable amount of leverage at its disposal that. The law and the law. The law is people. And people is politics. And I can handle a people. Brian Cox, welcome to fresh air. It is such a pleasure to have you back on the show. I love Succession and I love you in it. So welcome. Thank you. It's good to be here. Good to be back. Good to be back, Terry. The last line in the scene that we just played is so good, the law is people and people as politics and I can handle the people..

"He stars on the new film, the power of the dog. Cumberbatch was named best actor for his performance in the film by the national society of film critics. You can also see cumberbatch now in Spider-Man: No Way Home as Doctor Strange, which is the biggest box office hit since the start of the pandemic. So, you know, at the same time, you're in power of the dog. You're also in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is a movie in the Marvel Universe and you played Doctor Strange. And you have your own Doctor Strange movies and this is like you're a character in the Spider-Man film. You just finished the latest or about to finish the latest. Doctor Strange film. The Marvel Universe seems so different from, say, the gen campion universe. She directed power of the dog. For example, you stayed in character when you did your roll of fill in the power of the dog. And you know, you kept your accent. Now you could keep your accent when you're doing Doctor Strange because it's a New York accent, not a British accent. But I'm thinking how funny it would be of all of the characters in a Marvel Universe movie, all the superheroes stayed in character. Their own. I mean, that would just be kind of ridiculous. That would make it officially the most exhausting job you could possibly do is that and damaging two because you don't really have superpowers. There's that as well. Yeah, exactly. That could be pretty devastating to come out of. But yeah, imagine that lunch chat. No, it's true. It would be a very bizarre situation because mainly it's such a fragmented piecemeal process, making one of those films. I've watched incredible actors use an insane amount of skills on those sets to just be able to magically turn it on, be fresh with it and be loose with what's one of the biggest sandpits in the world. And play and never forget the art of acting as playfulness. But that takes a huge amount of ability and to be able to shift it and create something connected and present when you're acting against so many elements that aren't there when you're having to use your imagination. It is like being back in the bedroom again and just playing with characters that aren't seen in our childhood. I think it's a very, very heightened skill. You come from a really interesting family, your parents were both actors in England on stage and screen. They are still active. Are both actors say, okay, good..

"Cumberbatch was named best actor for his performance in the film by the national society of film critics, and by film critics associations in New York, Boston, Chicago, Dallas Fort Worth, and the San Francisco Bay Area. You can also see cumberbatch now in Spider-Man: No Way Home as Doctor Strange, and he's just completing work on the new Doctor Strange movie. Cumberbatch was nominated for an Oscar for his starring role in the film the imitation game, based on the story of Alan Turing the mathematical genius who was instrumental in breaking the German enigma code in World War II. Cumberbatch has played other real people like Stephen Hawking and Julian Assange. He's famous for his role as a contemporary version of Sherlock Holmes in the British TV series Sherlock. The power of the dog was directed by Jane campion, adapted from the novel of the same name, and is set in 1925 in Montana. Cumberbatch plays Phil, who along with his brother, played by Jesse Plemons, owns a cattle ranch. Film is hyper masculine. He skilled at cutting the testicles off cattle, herding cattle and breeding leather ropes. He rarely bathes. He's also a bully. He even insults his brother and cause him fat cell. When they're taking the herd to market, they stop at an inn where they have dinner. They're served by a young man, the son of the woman who owns the inn. He has a clean white linen towel over one arm. The way you might see in a fancy restaurant, not a little inn in a tiny town. His manner and the linen make him seem effeminate to fill. While the young man is serving the table where fill his brother and the cow hands are seated, Phil picks up a paper flower from the handmade bouquet, serving as the table centerpiece, and starts examining it. Oh yeah. Well, I wonder what little lady made these. Actually, I did sir. My mother was a florist. So I made them to look like the ones in our garden. Oh, well, do pardon me. There. Justice. Real as possible. All right, now Jenna look see, that's what you do with the clock. It's really just for wine drips..

"He wanted real tear gas to be used, which of course Aaron Sorkin decided against when he directed the film, but I think he's great. I think Jeremy strong is great as Kendall and Succession, but are there issues for you in terms of your approach being in conflict at all with his approach? Well, my I try not to make, you know, I try not to make that happen because I will deal with it and you know and if it's working within the scene, that's fine. But I'm not going to I'm not going to attach myself to it because otherwise you become distracts you. And I won't be distracted, you know? That's the important thing. I've got to do my job, you know? So like, when you're not in front of the camera, it's hard for you to engage with somebody who's staying in character. That's going to get in your way. But as long as the work is good, that's fine, as long as it doesn't get I don't let it get in my way. I never let it get in my way because I just accept that that's what they do. My worry is their responsibility to the community. Because it's a communal thing. It's a group thing. It's not just about your performance. It is about all of our performances. And the harmony we create and the tensions that we create within that harmony. I mean, I'm in the harmony in terms of we're all in the same we have the same intention of getting the program out and making it the best we can. So and that's my only question. That's the only thing that I go no. And that the group, the group dynamic is very important. When you've got a great group dynamic, you always have a great show. And succession is about the group dynamic. That's what's so powerful about Succession..

"And then schofield posco field, who I think is, for me, is the finest stage act that I've ever seen. By none. Can I stop here a second? You said that something about the voice beautiful. What do you referring to? Well, well, Gil good talked about when he was younger that sometimes he would say, you know, because I work with him. I did the Julius Caesar with him. And he said, he did say to me, he said, you know, when I was younger, I kind of got I started off well, but then I started to I started to listen to myself a little bit, you know, and I could hear and you can hear it in his voice that he did get he started to trill a little bit. The thing about it is that you've always got to be in the truth. It's subject verb and object. That's what you have to base it. And it's simple grammar. And when you understand the principles of grammar, then the cadences of the voice take on those principles. It's as simple as that. But if you don't understand subject verb and object, and a lot of people don't, a lot of actors don't a lot of American actors don't. They see it emotionally, and they don't see it in terms of clarity, you know. I mean, the emotional thing, of course, has got to be there, but that's a given. But the thing is clarity. And the thing is actually making the audience listen to you. How do you make an audience listen to you? And you make the audience listen by being clear. And by being by inhabiting the line by understanding where you are on the line. And this goes right back to Shakespeare on the iambic pentameter to be or not to be that is the question. Whether it is nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows.

And he said, yeah, well, we just talked to more interesting. You know, it's kind of bizarre, that whole thing was totally bizarre. Did you have to redo anything? No, no. No, no. Didn't have to. Because he's got it. Because he's lived in America. And basically, he's been we slip in and out. So it kind of works and I do it. I mean, when I was a kid, because when I was a little boy, I mean, I ended up playing movies. I was always playing I was always doing American accents from the age of about 5. What do you hear in American accents? What do I hear? Ease of sound. I think sometimes it's I mean, I do worry about Americans not enunciating things. And as I get older, I get a little bit more hard of hearing about some kind of goes like that, you know, a little bit. But also it's ease. It's also it is the language of an egalitarian society because it's not you can't. I mean, of course you've got the regions and you've got the various influences like the appalachians you've still got the Scottish influence actually down there. But it's what has been a tractor. And it's also a passionate action. It's a great, it's a great one for argument. And so I like it, but as I get older, I get older, I go more and more towards English because I go more and more for clarity. And sometimes Americans isn't always clear, you know?

"They were all Irish immigrants a lot of them Tracy, you know. So that all came from the same Celtic stock. So and somehow the film's resonated. So your period of becoming an actor coincided with this new period of social mobility, we're working class actors. The greatest time. We're becoming accepted and working class stories started being told in movies in England. Did you feel like your accent or your background ever held you back? Either in your training at the London Academy of Music and dramatic art or in your access to roles. I mean it did in a way. It's a feudal society. And it's everybody in their place. And the great thing about the 60s is anything was possible. You were encouraged to be who you were. You're encouraged to be able to talk in your own accent and all of that started to change. So ironically, the Scottish thing didn't kick into later. So actually, I ended up playing when I started out playing a lot of Liverpool people or Yorkshire, I played quite a David's story place, so I did played a lot of Yorkshire people in January film and then I did a couple of plays in that way. So that was the sense of social mobility. And the other great influence, of course, at the time, was what was happening in music because it was the time of The Beatles. It was the time of The Rolling Stones. It was the time of the who, the kinks. So the music thing had burgeoned and those guys. I mean, when I watched that wonderful documentary with Paul McCartney, that thing from get back from those days when they recorded the last album, it was like, moved me to tears because that was the energy that was so in the atmosphere that anything was possible that we could do it and subsequently dissipated horribly because of everybody saying, oh, just remember who you are. And it's still as futile as ever it was. And the people won't even see it because it's kind of hidden. It's in the fabric of the society. Well, let me reintroduce you here. If you're just joining us, my guest is Brian Cox. He stars in succession as the patriarch Logan Roy. And now he has a new memoir called putting the rabbit in the hat. We'll talk more after we take a short break. I'm Terry gross, and this is fresh.

"I mean, when she was the one that really suffered because she I mean, when I when I came into the world, I brought half a woman with me as well at the same time. Yeah, I mean it was a struggle for her and she was quite ill. She had had several miscarriages before me, and she was in she was what she was 40, I think, when I was born, and she was 40. Or she was coming up to 40. And she had a atmosphere horrendous. It was a horrendous birth. And of course, you know, the whole thing about that sort of working class thing is you just put up with it. You know, there was no complaints. I remember that my wife, my first wife, you know, she lost children. We lost twins. And my mother came to stay and my mother had this expression, which is I'll have to do it in a Scottish accent because that's so when I was saying Carol and my wife had said, I'm worried about my mind. She said, oh, she said I said, you know, because the twins and losing their twins and said, oh, bran. I drop bends. Which is an extraordinary thing to see which we've all dropped babies. So this was like a common thing among women, you know, miscarriage wasn't something that was unusual. It was a it was a process that women horrifically went through, you know, horrifically. My mom was part of that, you know? So when you were born among the complications, was that the umbilical cord was wrapped around your throat. Your legs were in the wrong position. I came in as first. Yeah, and as you say, your mother was physically and emotionally scarred by the birth. Terrible. Did she talk with you about did you how old were you when you found out? How difficult the birth was and the impact it had physically and emotionally on your mother. I kind of got it when I was really quite young. I think my mom told me eventually, after she was she'd been ill and she came home briefly, which was never the same. You know, she was she had an electric shock treatment, so a lot of her memory stuff had gone short term memory had gone long term memory was fine. So she did tell me about the book, you know? And I was kind of, you know, it was a miracle, you know, because I did have that called wrap around my neck, and I did come. I don't know what I must have thought. I mean, what I felt was. And I was the other way around as well. That's why I came because obviously I was heading towards the birth canal and I thought there's no way I can get through here. John Brown. And went the other way, which was weird weird thing. Your father, when he died, you were 8 years old..

"Well, his anger is about the fact that his anger is based on the stupidity around him. He said that the other thing about Logan is what people forget, he fires people and rehires them. This is what he's done. He has a team. There's two families in this show. You know, there's the kids. But there's also the people he's worked with for the last 30 40 years. Jerry, Frank. Carl, in his financial manager, financial director. And what really is interesting about that from my point of view is they he is shown to them, even though he's treated them and sometimes really appalling where he's ultimately there's something that's ultimately loyal about his relationship to his staff. Which people don't even notice, they never notice it because they think, oh, well, he's capricious and away. You could say he's there's an element of caprice, but there's also an element of constantly testing people, constantly testing the loyalty. And it's exhausting. You know? And he has a lot of respect. And he can be curiously offhand, like when he says, a man, Jerry, he has a lot of respect for, but then he then stays things like, you know, she's a million years old. What are you talking about, you know? That stuff. You know, and this just comes out because that's because of his own element of ignorance, you know? About human relationships. But let's get back to playing his anger. Well, his anger comes from his childhood. It comes from his lack, you know, and I have personally a lot of anger and myself, partly because of my background. Which we'll get into. Yeah. Which I didn't realize. So the anger is something I can relate to. I can relate to his anger. And he has this relationship with his sister rose, which we never discover. We also have the relationship with those but his mom is named these journalists. So there is this sense of family in him which is quite complicated because at the same time it's his burden, he wish he could we all do. We all wish we could get rid of certain stuff, but we can't. That's why it's an interesting role to play because there is a background that we don't even explore. We never see him other than we see him through other people's eyes. And we hear him. And we go, but we never. There's never a moment where, you know, like, you know, like, did with Tony Soprano, where he sits down and goes and sees a psychiatrist and he can talk certain ways. We don't do that. We never expose that element of them. But from the acting point of view, you have to store all that stuff up, even though you don't play it. And anger is anger as one of the key things. I want to ask you about your birth. You were born after your mother had four or 5 miscarriages. And you nearly died in childbirth. Can you explain the complications of your birth? Yeah, it was a horrendous thing for my poem..

"About power plays that will lead to more power and more money with little regard for ethics, morality, or the consequences of his actions on the lives of others. When Logan's son Kendall asked Logan if he ever thought that Kendall could take over, here's how Logan responded. You're not a killer. You have to be a killer. That wasn't a fair assessment because Kendall went on to prove he did have killer instincts as he tried to take down his father. Ruthlessness is a trait that Logan succeeded in passing on to his children. Cox won a Golden Globe for his performance in succession and is now nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award. He's written a new memoir called putting the rabbit in the hat. It begins in Dundee, Scotland, where he grew up after nearly dying at birth. That's here another clip from Succession. In this scene, waste our rouco is being investigated by the Justice Department, and Logan's daughter shiv is worried because she knows about the whistleblowers and the intimidation of victims. Shiva is played by Sarah snook. Can we, I mean, can we talk? Yes. We can talk. Okay, well. We're a big company. But how bad is. What is the worst thing? Not bad. Health, safety, compliance. A few bad apples. What? Well, I know that isn't true. Come on, dad. Tom worked in cruises. Bill told him everything. And besides, I know that there were black ops, and I know that there was targeted intimidation of victims, and whistleblowers, NRPI. Maybe there were some salty moves. You can't just change her story. I want to keep you clean. I put Jerry in, but I can't trust her. She's optics. I need you. Listen. I didn't know about any of the. Well, you're on emails. Do you know how many emails I got a day? I don't read my emails. I get the action points. I know. Schiff, the world is rough. We're on a cruise line on some tin pot ports registered in bungo hovers and we poured millions in insurance. Did we play rough with the odd union boss or some moaning mini repeat litigant? I don't know. It was a quarter of a century ago. A lot of it. So yes, I fought for you and your brothers. But you will not find a piece of paper that makes you ashamed of me. Okay? Well, the government does have an unbelievable amount of leverage at his disposal, dad. The law. And the law. The law is people. And people is politics. And I can handle a people.

All the songs obviously didn't talk about casting for bombardier elliott no. I was thinking a little bit of the other other day though. I'm not sure how you do it. How the who could you possibly cast as bamadoro. You'd probably have to really draw from like musical theater. I guess Somebody with a strong like seeing sort of presence. I don't know but they also need to be peaceful and not missing like i'm thinking of like older actors like maybe maybe brian blessed could could play this role. But i almost said. Brian cox just because i love brian cox. But that's totally wrong. Brian calvert is far too severe for bill. Because you don't want him to be menacing either right. I mean It's it's a particular energy that tom bombardier has to have and he's also he's gotta have some some longs he's got to be able to really dealt those numbers like basically acapella nid forest so i'm not sure he would cast. What about stephen mckinley henderson. Who's playing through fear. Hot in the upcoming dune movie. Feel like he he may be has the right kind of of Sort of supernatural Benign presence that you need for tom. Bombay dill yeah. Maybe so you do kind of. I feel like there's some crossover with actors who've effectively played santa claus in you have an effective santa. Maybe bombay dill i.

Getting Ready for the 2020 Emmys

"The Television Academy has just unveiled the nominees for this year's edition of the Emmy Woods Nichols Fernando Augusta per checker and colossal rebelo went through the list and brought us the highlights. Let's have a listen. Pelada. Lovely to have you here. Let's talk about the AMI's but first of all, I mean, you have quite an experience with the amas right while I was very lucky last year while working out of our Los Angeles Bureau to attend the ceremony last for the seventy first. Edition of the Emmy Awards it is amazing. It really is a celebration of all things television not only of course, you're able to see the ceremony yourself and how it all unfolds that the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, you get to sit right next to some of your favorite stars as they celebrate you know a year worth of work you get to watch as some of them lose some of them when at last year was quite. Special because it was of course, the last year that game of thrones was nominated the end of the saga of game of thrones, which was, of course, a really big deal and one thing that I really liked about that was also how they marked the series that were coming to an end last year by bringing all the cast in the production team that was attending the ceremony on stage and kind of acknowledging any TV show that's on. Air for. A few years it is a bit sad one. You know the last time modern family was also the last. So it yeah, it is. It is quite an experience. I mean we are still a few months to go until this year's edition. Hopefully, we'll be able to have it in person by then by September the television academy still hasn't exactly unveiled the plans for that. But yeah, it just feels as much as it is A. Celebration of television it feels very different to watch it in person than on. TV. Sets and if he's going to be a special year because I mean we've been watching lots of television during lockdown effing and one of the things don't you grieve me. Colada that I like about the Emmys they are. You know what they are actually fairly diverse compared to the film awards and that just shows TV can be actually quite progressive away. Absolutely I think. The nominations this year as well. Reflects that diversity is well and yeah it does show how TV has been able to catch up with only momentum that has been happening in Hollywood about asking for change when it comes to diversity. But even if you look at the shows that are nominated or even just a shows that we're watching now they are reflection of different stories that are a reflection of different themes it's not as standard I would. Say, for example, with the Oscars and I think that's what makes it quite an interesting and exciting. Well, let's talk about some of the favorites I did like sheets Greek being nominated for comedy series of things surprise it started as a very little Canadian series but then apparently people saying that my win actually because the critics love it oh, it is a fantastic show I definitely has been one of the ones I've been watching this year and I was very happy to see it getting nominated for the outstanding Comedy Series Award another one on that category that it was really happy to see their it's the kaminsky methods. This is a Netflix show and yes, it is very lovely with Michael. Douglas starring in it and it is very funny as well and it was so nice to see you know it. They're in the category as well and I just I was very happy I. Think. As we were saying the nominations this year do justice to the TV. We've been watching I mean drama succession I know we're both big fans and you know Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong both be nominated for best actor in a drama series very well deserved extremely well deserved and it is, of course, we're talking here about a big categories. As if you go down the list, there are more awards being given to all the shows we've been mentioning. Not Awards, nominations I mean. But yes, I was very, very happy to see succession I think personally, it has been one of my favorite shows over the last few years I can't remember being dad excited about a show in succession was already nominated for Fiore's last year. I. Know that Nicholas Brutal do who composed the sound score for at won an emmy last year. For. For the score, he composed for succession that would be nice to see it how it's catching momentum and that fans quite disappointed that due to coronavirus sat filming restrictions. The third series did not come out this year as planned but this is a recognition of TV done very very well, there's been other recognitions for example, the morning show had quite a few nominations. And again, it was a show that it was not like loved the beginning by tics but I think people kind of were said, you know what actually was a good series especially the last episode of series. So another one I'm very happy also have very significant for apple as well as the morning show was you know the show that apple try to use as? To make its mark as someone that could compete with the network giants and streaming giants as well. So not only is a very good sign for the a seeing Jennifer Aniston Steve Carell nominated but also to see apple when they've been investing into the right series hiring great actors, great writers, Great Producers, and that it actually pays off and Collado. So what if Jimmy Kimmel? This time I mean, as you rightly said, we don't know how ceremony is going to be, but you know what bt awards they did try and they did like a special ceremony. Names might have to do that because it's happening on the twentieth September. That's very the as the television academy has said that the creative emmys, which you know the creative emmy is usually happen a few days before the Primetime Emmys and they've already said that those are happening on an online platform a few days before didn't haven't clarified yet for the AMI's themselves. We still don't know exactly what are the plans now? What is interesting about Jimmy, Kimmel here hosting I think it's his third time hosting is that he is nominated as well. His show Jimmy came alive is on the outstanding variety talk series, and there's always very endearing one. You know one of the host sometimes even people introducing the award end up being nominated. So yeah, I'd be curious to see exactly how that's going to pay out I don't know. was there any surprise nomination here on this list for you? Fernando as F- in the morning show was A bit of a surprise for me and also in the drama category I mean, we saw men hurriedly having quite a lot of nominations itself Jeremy Pope for his role in Hollywood for a best actor on limited series or movie because Lotte I think competition program should go again to Rupo's drag race. Oh Yeah. His love rapport figured they will he would win again just shows how you know when Ru Paul's drag race started. It was a very Niche not known at the public, and now they've been doing this for over a decade now, and there's just shows how you know there is an appetite for a show like that that it is mainstream, there's no way you can't say that anymore and is so empowering it is, of course, one of my personal favorites as well. It was really nice last year to be there when they won and to see Europol come on stage with a lot of the. Of the show as well and some of the judges when we look at that category I'm partial to and I would love to see them winning again on that category.

It's always tough for Breeders Cup because then the paper gets all gets a little a little sloppy and sure enough here. I'm looking now and yeah I do have it. Actually there we go there we go home. You were a Vino guy and and bricks and mortar and and then spun to run so yeah your share of winners Too Key around I thought was on higher power. Though I didn't have you know I got you written down for Dino. I took higher power stirred Flavian Pratt. What's up on them? I'll tell you play the Heidi wrote one favorite Donna Duluth below she. The brewers Juke juvenile given up Phillies runner-up but he had a win. had four seconds and fourth earners. I thought that was a really a great performance by him and You know he has the Kentucky Derby win on his resume junkies like have that really just A good showcase for an upcoming star in our rank agreed and and I tweeted on Sunday. I've discussed this a couple of times this week. His record is stunning. And he's got people would say. Oh He's only got three wins. WHOA WHOA three wins? Thirty eight mounts and this is only his fourth year as fourth year riding his sixteen seventeen eighteen nineteen at-bats. Ah But another fourteen in the money finishes and then a handful of fourths and fifths I mean the percentage is frightening. I mean considering considering the level of competition really outstanding and he gives he gives every virtually every horse. If he's got horse to work with he gives them a chance. It's definitely and you know I mean I think Santa Anita and hosted the Breeders Cup eight times previously and and and he was writing a lot of california-based debased horses and one of my takeaways was definitely that this this year's Breeders Cup with completely unlike any out in California before I mean just uh-huh it just. It really started on Friday where the first four winners had all raised it Aqueduct Belmont and by the end of it I'm you know I'm looking at it it it. If you'd looked at the charts that Saturday at at Saratoga you wouldn't be surprised to see our ad or ts in four races Castellano and Rosario win into each and then Jose or ts Manny Frank Ricardo Santana All winner races well and Joe Bravo and that's what happened. They took twelve to fourteen races and and all twelve of those horses that race in New York this year now very strong on that on that front and ah not to say that Just had the conversation with Nick. Lock about the euro's and there were there were solid efforts and solid board hits in addition to Iridescence win but The you know the and there were solid performances from west coast sources to bell. Athena's Bella Fina. At under under certain circumstances dances might have won. The united almost looked like a winner hundred yards from the wire There were there were plenty of of solid performances from every region In some cases. Look at Vino. Vino having been into California. I think counselor a lot. You fold in folding would ask. Did you know getting there early with Matali Actually Navarro to I mean in Navarro got there early with a chance. A Lot A lot of times the a Lotta Times. The juvenile turf sprang can be like locally based sources can do all your top two in that race were both based in California with Peter Miller and you the one hundred and thirty five bucks. That's right that's right. That's right his second his second in the race in three years. I'm just looking at the list to spun to run from Philadelphia. So you get you get a a regional kind of a B.. Track player are sharing sharing holiday for new. New York's thunder run actually ran in a mate. Nice at act backer. And the winner but I mean the parks and mom Sharing base at Far Hills at far hell and Maryland bred. That's a couple of times Toga. Yeah yeah everybody everybody got their Lixin. Actually when you when you kind of go through this And I'll just say I I came away. I mean granted. I thought the four big stars coming into enforces with the serious horsey. Our aspirations Bricks Mourner Corner Sister Charlie and Matola two of the four one I think it really does come down horse a year two bricks and mortar and Matola Louis. But I'm giving the edge bricks mortar. I thought it was fantastic campaign. He had been a mile or previously. Before you know getting hurt and undergoing that surgery and I like the fact that Brad Cox I mean Brown ran him. You know he never ran he. Random and six different courses six different states. You went from Florida to Louisiana to Kentucky Hockey to New York to Illinois and the California To win a mile and a half for the first time in his career so to me. He's a deserving of the year well and and driving home the point about the mile and a half for people that because they always beat all the same types and didn't stretch himself then no he did and and you know the there was even people that were incredulous about him going the mile and a half so you know that that score extra points Without a doubt yeah definitely and you know to me One of the Mike Smith that made the point After a couple Oh. He ran second on a pair of privet favorites midnight zoo in Omaha Beach. And he's made the point that he'd right like those races back because it was hard to 'cause over that track track but to me it was more so that those horses were caned on the rail going into the first turn. Blue Prize was tenth early. You know tolley Holy Arosa could be five or six minutes off the pace. But they're jocks really at. That did a great job keeping them in the clear and I really thought midnight. These to you You know continue just to be in traffic through into the far turn. And when she got out she finished great as a case I mean they the great job on on TV and other highlighting it where I think of a blueprint. It's got the jump on her because of the trip the greed and it and it it also. It should be noted for people that are you know insisting that the track nobody could close well. WHOA that's not true? which is simply me? Just look at the chart for the distaff. What do you mean nobody could close at that? Just you know Omaha. Beach closed closed In in as well came from often and others whitmore made up. I mean it wasn't going to get to the winners and the the exact pair But he closed Idiom really had down below chicken that juvenile fillies and that's when the track was absolutely at its worst deepest pissed most impossible right based on based on the figure and in fact. It's funny because yesterday. Paul Matisse was talking about how difficult Friday was to make figures and then it was echoed by Jerry Brown on His On his experts board board. Somebody brought up. Paul's conversation and Jerry also echoed that the way the track changed from the you know the middle part of the day to by the time even the the juvenile boys ran so typically you would if the juvenile of the males run more than two seconds faster than the phillies. You'll get say their way better than the nose Philly but I do think it was. It was a track getting off faster later. And I. I'm I'm not down on British idiom or Donna Boise at all even though that right they came home. I think they should be still terrific runners. And you know it's it's hard to gauge coming out of the juvenile being real adobe guy Exactly what that means going forward so into court definitely Nice Horse Court Vision You know hasn't isn't had much success at Stud but he's bread You know fire. Classic types with that pedigree of his female family has a lot of stamina influences. It just doesn't have much class. You won't find any stakes winners really in that immediate female family well your final the final takeaways. My final take away so I just you know I you know I was. I thought you know it was a tragic end McGowan crew. I mean it was just a Really hurt to see that happy at the very end After a thirteen of the Breeders Cup races have that happened in the ashtray and and racing. Definitely I think has some issues and concerns going forward. the people in the industry maybe do a better job messaging but I still remain. Optimistic is the horserace fan about the future and I was. I came away like in the Breeders Cup. I thought there was some great performances and Looking for work once again the next year very good well. We're looking forward to the action this weekend give us some thoughts about Churchill had terrific card even today yesterday and Wednesday were good and of course the Commonwealth on Saturday the feature the Grade Three Mile and a sixteenth. The three year olds on the grass. It is an absolute war. Some thoughts about what's been going on while everybody was paying attention to Breeders Cup and and we got to look forward to this weekend. Yeah they had three stakes last week and In the MEA mischief flatmate go for the sale and and look good. She loves Churchill Downs Multiple Grade. One winner there in the Divine Queen got off to bad start. Art Never Fire in the In Saturday stakes chill Lewke and Sally's Kirwin breakers Swin She tried the Indiana Oaks folks earlier. This year didn't run good for Dale Romans. But she had one or last two allowance races by like about fifteen lenz combined and ran a rug. Good Rice debris greet Brian Cox's

Well yeah thank you well. Let's start by saying the poor benighted souls that had had yet to watch it. They need to know cousin. Greg is yeah yeah yeah. Is this dude cousin greg so the shows about a very very wealthy family billionaire family the movie studios news networks newspapers and amusement parks cruises and cousin greg greg comes in luckily at the right time when the patriots of the family is giving his company to his next to the two one of his children altern and the other kids. Maybe want the job too but this kid kendall's gotten in the pilot. He's gotten chosen and greg comes in. He was working working in the amusement parks. He got a little bit too high. One day ended up throwing throwing up a publicly through his mascot costume through the eye. Holes has one you you know one of those bad trips <hes> we'd can do that. You know he hasn't seen the family and a while and he comes in and <hes> something about him. Strike slogan gene is appealing logan's play by brian cox the hidden in the headman turning eighty and at the end of the pilot everyone's thrown into flux and for whatever reason greg is still in the mix and so i guess that my my arc is sort of finding out.

Game Preview: Chiefs at Patriots

"We are joined by Super Bowl champ former patriot Brian Cox. Thank you for joining us this morning. Big aim Sunday. What do you expect expert hus- going game. Whoever has the ball last has an opportunity win, but I think the Kansas City Chiefs coming away with the victory. Wow, wow. I don't like either the visits. Agree with you, I think is going to be high scoring, but I don't believe that Tom radio will make them stakes that Blake Bortles dead. I also believe that once they get inside the red zone, Blake Bortles turned the ball over Tom Brady's gonna get touchdowns. And so the question is know. We see them go head to head for a little while being and they outgun the Steelers, but can he go full quarter in New England head to head with Tom Brady because in order to beat them, they've only been Tom Brady has been to start a two thousand five. They've only been home. They only been home dog four times. So people, man, I'm surprised that New England favorite over Kansas stated that a number one power rank. I mean, number two power ranking behind the ramp. I'm not because as long as Tom Brady's there is long, it's called Bella checks. They're, they're probably going to be favored at home because we know that record is not skip it. Probably a little shot that the spray is not bigger things like giving money. So they go to keep that thing low and they want to try to get somebody as opposed to give the money away. But. This is going to be. I'm anxious to see Mahomes as we go along, you say on a magic carpet ride. I don't know if he's fourteen in too good specially in the second year starting. Yeah, but the patriots are different animal at home, and now that they have all their pieces off physically, they'll slowly integrate. Ajayi Gordon Gordon on the outside. Now that's gonna lessen the double teams on. You can't double team adamant.
