We're back to our interview with actors. Bryan cranston and robin dearden after having one child robin and brian faced a tough dilemma. He had hopes for more children. Robin was done early. So that was a big therapy thing for. While i'll bet i think i really would have resented having two kids when he would be gone like six months or go off into a movie or right and and how did you get through that well as a progressive enlightened male i said well i think it's fair that you should have two votes and i'll have one vote so because of the tautological tissue out for so i said i said well maybe when taylor is one years old i'll bring it up when she's two years old are bringing up and after that i won't bring it up but we know okay but we did go to therapy for that and i learned something really interesting about you at at that is i had yes. We're getting deep into him wanting more children. So much and me being fine with not the therapist as brian. Why do you think this is so important in you. Had this epiphany of 'cause. I only think of a family as my siblings because his parents were so fractured that us only having one was not a family. I really relied on my brother. Who's two years older than me. During the fracture of the family he was like it was running defense and blocking for me and figuring things out together and we're very very close for a long long time. I thought boy. I really needed my brother. Are little sister needed us to at times to take care of her to babysit when mom was drinking too much. Or whatever you know. So that's what i kept thinking. It's not for me. It's for taylor. I thought it's better for to simply. I don't disagree with you. I think that that's what do you think it's not too late. Baby sure big deal. That's that's amazing. Having a change your marriage a lot by having a baby by oh yeah well. Because i did have a one is forty because i did have major complications. It took me a year to even feel quasi-normal again just wrecked me. It just totally wrecked me. And that was part of a to i. Just don't wanna go through that again. It was just deprived. You of the joy of motherhood didn't for a while. I mean not from to nothing on from two years old on that first year it was really really hard was really hard but brian is home. Then he wasn't gonna wasn't going through. Oh yeah and it's like we'll just do this. We'll just get through this. That's who he is that in everything he's like that there was another point. His grandmother was in dementia in a home and she had to go to the bathroom and he said i'll help you. And she said owner and okay. She wasn't really sure who he was and she said. Oh no no. I'd be too 'cause oh grandma don't you know i'm a doctor. Now she went. Okay so good. And how was it about about robin. That made you think part of it was just the the the person that she is that she still has a joyous appreciation for simple things for just life a good positive outlook. She wasn't cynical or sarcastic yet. She was funny. She was beautiful. Still is and the character of a person is what you should hit your wagons to. What are the choices you make when times are tough. Is there an example. Well it's interesting because one of our first fights was when she had this boyfriend and we were now getting together and she hadn't officially told the boyfriend that didn't live in los angeles that this was not going to go any further. And i thought you know this. I'm sensing something sensing something here. I tell them. I lost my voice. I physically lost my voice. Tone is such a psychological while it was like i got laryngitis so to speak i guess so. Did you believe it well. I was having a difficult time and rightfully rightfully. So yes. thank you for. I was in the right on here completely but they were asking. What is it about me that you love so thanking big mistake. Just doing better. You're probably right. What would you pass on to a young couple. Who's about to be married that you've learned being able to laugh. It's really important to me. And then the other thing is just say. Sometimes i'm your best friend. I've got your back. Don't forget that And i think if you can both remember that what about you. Mr. you have to know that you fall in love before you attempt this now. it's sounds overly simplistic because well of course we'll but really being love and take the time to really desire that person to miss that person sometimes separation is not necessarily a bad thing and to find out how you truly feel at your core if.

"Dates to find out what makes a marriage last. What a crazy afternoon in new york. The day we met bryan cranston and robin dearden. Oh god i remember. Brian was starring in the hit. Broadway production of network and the kurt was going up in just a few hours. So we had a very narrow window of time to visit with them at their apartment or men are cabdriver. Took us to the wrong address and it was rush hour. We were almost a full hour late. It was just the worst no time to kind of warm up to each other wonderfully into the wrong that yes and no idiot lately from discombobulated never late especially. You were rattled but brian was so relaxed. Nifty as curtain. Yeah that's ahead. Once we got our act together we dove in by talking about their parents marriages. All seven of my parents marriages were wonderful. My my mom was married four times. My dad was married three times. They had numerous boyfriends and girlfriends. And yeah so in many ways. My parents taught me what not to do. This kind of lazy attitude into marriage didn't work wherever you from from. La born and raised out there. And so you kind of against marriage no. I was married once before. When i was twenty three and then i got married again when i was thirty five. I think i was thirty. Five thirty three so ten years after my trial so it didn't scare you off marriage in fact that there were all those marriages no no. Because the woman that i married wasn't a bad person. She was a lovely person. It just it just was the wrong time. And i wasn't in love with her. And i i think i took a very casual look at it. It wasn't fair to her. Wasn't fair to me. Fortunately we didn't have any children and she went her separate way and remarried and has a life and the life she wanted. Let you and what about your family. I came from the complete opposite of his. I had leave it to beaver. I was raised in whittier. Little tiny town nixon's hometown. I'm a native californian too. I never wanted to get married. It wasn't a high on my list and my parents never instilled in me. The need to be married. We grew up in mostly are formative years in the seventies and the the sexual revolution in the sixties busted open and the seventies sort of celebrated that kind of looseness and you got waylaid and off track. I think a lot by fun. Yeah by fun and by freedom and convincing yourself that you may be in love with someone when you're really not and you may not have that much in common with them and now you're in so deep you like. Oh how do i extract myself. I got married very and then afterward. I realized oh i've made a mistake and i realized then find do this again. I really have to know what i'm doing and be in love so then you met on a set right. We met on a on a really terrible television show called air wolf which starred a helicopter and and i was a bad guy of the week on this episode. She was the victim of the week. I kidnapped her and held her for ransom and other women say how sexy you had a gun on her threatened to kill her or dater. We met on air wolf. We didn't start dating that. It was a year later that we ran into each other in improv comedy class and and got to know each other and got to be friends. But i think we were. We were lucky we were guided to this the year. The at the time that we met we had a girlfriend to. She had a boyfriend so we were able to just not have the tension. I should make a move and ask her out and were able to just a fun and flirt. And and that's nice and we just kind of slowed into it as opposed to over extending yourself physically making that commitment and then having to backtrack to figure out who this person is who you just have relations with. That is so new. Are we fool ourselves. And we'd go. Oh my god. I'm doing this again. And then i went to oxford for a summer and he came over and he stopped at oxford and and i went. Oh it's you. And i've never felt that way my life. If you mean. I can't explain it except that it was just this reaction to oh i do. I do wanna get married and i wanna marry you. That's so you knew that. I knew pretty fast and i had never felt that way before. And you were you thinking that she could be the one. Yeah i was. I was very keen on this. We had the most romantic date in at stratford-upon-avon rented a punt. And we were. We had sandwiches beautiful day. Wine found a little shady place under a tree in the water. We kissed like bandits. How lovely how great. Your proposal received a lot of that. Is that best in london that he owned a cabin with a friend of his to actors. They bought a cabin up in big bear. It was hilarious because the bafta was a standard sized bathtub in a crappy cabin in the mountains so there wasn't any room for me to face him facing the spout back was against his chest. Yes so i kept thinking. I designed it this way because i thought that if i was to face her and trying to get these leads out i would cry. I would crack. I'd i really did so. I thought man. Am i going to do this. How am i gonna do i. Champagne little music going. And i'm going. What the hell. And every time. I start to talk that she starts to turn around to look and i pushed her face back toward the front so that i could let me just get this out. Was that a surprise. At that moment. It wasn't surprised because it was like. I know where this is going. Kind of now. The other thing was the ring. Yeah we're nude as one is right. Where would i put the ring. So i think you'll see it. There's if i put no down the drain. And i i don't i put it on my baby toe. I put it all the way on my and submerged the foot at segue so.

"I guess the the fact that you had seen how acting could impact person if it didn't if the dreams don't pan out Did that deter you in any way. I guess i'd read that deter you in the sense of pursuing it yourself. I read some fun stuff that you were you know. I think he had directed you in something at one point before he he left in a and that you were separately i think in in some school productions including one that you have a funny story that the time machine but i guess i just wonder was it. Was it something where you're saying. I want to grow up and do what my parents do. Or you're just thinking in terms of other. Though you know is too young to be able to recognize that. I wanted to be a baseball player. And there's only one thing that held me back from being coming a professional baseball player nuts talent otherwise i'd have been great but it didn't. It didn't appear to me to be a pathway for me the time and and then you know the cautionary tale of my my parents woes in show business was probably in the back of my mind. I don't think it was a conscious level. And i just you know. Well i'm gonna do something else and back when i was a kid. There were career days and everybody would come into the school gym. It would be everybody representing the military representing the fire department. The police department gas company. It was basically around to high schools where kids were probably not going to go to college. And you know it's time to think about your future and for some reason. My brother gravitated to the police department and he joined a police explorer group which was sixteen year olds. We had to go to the lapd academy every saturday for eight eight weeks and you train kind of like a junior police program. I don't know exactly why he did that but he did. He's two years older than me. The first year that he was in the group went to hawaii. And i thought oh man. I'm a poor kid from the valley. We didn't have any money. My when my parents split up there was nothing we got kicked out of our our house. For closure i mean i my brother and i had to go live with our grandparents for a year. I mean it was. In retrospect it was more dire than i realized at the time so he was involved in this group and he found a community he found a group of young guys that he related to and i think also he gravitated to it again retrospectively because of the policemen being father figures in a masculine father figure since our father was not around i think he was maybe subliminally looking for that kind of influence and the second year he was in there. Now i'm fifteen..
Ford's New Rocket League Sponsorship is Perfect
"Besides the racing games which are a natural fit for car brands. There's one sport that made such a natural Fit For A brand sponsorship. I can't believe it took so long. It took it League yesterday Ford announced they're putting the Ford F-150 into the game. It's the first time a consumer-facing vehicle has been added to the game. So consumer-facing a key part of that. What does that mean rocket league has brought in a ton of different cars from media Universe has many of which are tied to actual Brands. You know, the Batmobile doesn't have a brand behind in the Dodge Charger is in game. So is Nissan's are thirty-four and so it's a Jeep, but the first two of those cars were tied to Fast and Furious DLC pack and they're based on old school cars for the charger it wage. 1968 and 1970 and the Nissan was based on the car from 1999 used by Brian O'Connor. The jeep was from Jurassic Park. So it's not like you can just buy these cars at a lot down. There was one other car that wasn't tied to a media franchise in rocket League's history. And that car is the McLaren starting at two hundred grand though. The McLaren is not a consumer car because it's a Subaru targeted at high-end customers. I'd wager to say maybe five people who play rocket League can afford a McLaren. Maybe that's generous Ford's F-150 is clearly different. The Ford F-series is the best selling Truck Series in North America nearly a million truck sold in 2019 when it comes to marketing you Market a Ford F series truck a lot differently than a new market a McLaren which is why it's fair to say. This is the first consumer-facing car that's existed in rocket League. What I think is really cool about the sponsorship. It says made up of a bunch of different parts first off the car inches the game great start it'll be available for purchase from February 22nd to the 28th. Then forward will also be a sponge for the upcoming rlcs winter major at the end of February that we taking over the in-game Billboards, which I still believe are a massive white space for sponsors Ford is also releasing a new ad around this partnership with the coolest part of that ad is that will be voiced by Bryan Cranston, you know the star of Breaking Bad also the dad from Malcolm in the Middle. Shout out to help crested also did for Superbowl at this year just to give you an idea about how much Ford is investing in the sponsorship and there's a final piece of a too which is also really cool Ford is hosting a freestyle competition people unfamiliar with rocket League freestyling is when you send your car turning like crazy to overcomplicate a goal in search of a sick clip, it's really popular on YouTube. It's doing tricks like flip resets double Taps Turtles and any other way to make a gold look really cool for it'll be inviting 8 freestyle rap. Our competition and the winner will receive an actual Ford F-150. Those are the kinds of small details that really make a brand sponsorship in Esports stand out to me. It shows an underscore the audience and the content that works with this audience as well. I really think this is the car sponsorship the rocket league has been raped for four years with the increased Esports investment from Brands like Toyota Honda BMW Mercedes and plenty more. I really can't believe it took this long, but good on Ford for finally making it

It's sitting on my desk right now. in fact i'm looking at it and it's gorgeous. I put a lot of time into it. It is a one thousand nine hundred seventeen. Sony you've seen it. It's awesome and kudos to usa for remembering the name.

I years and years and years ago. got this small house in connecticut. That was like the first thing i ever bought. And i would go up there on number. Forget there was this handyman around and he said. Do you need anything i said yes i need a workbench and the guy said okay. I'll get you. I'll i'll find you a work bench.

"Did you really please tell me you did do a stand up at a funeral. Please tell me now. Well i did one of the bigger challenges. I've had in my life as i did. As a very good event it was in town hall in new york city and it was a very very good worthy event but the people just the way it timed out it was to raise money an excellent cause for people that had been really grievously injured in the war and so that there was a long film up top about the injuries. Then they had people come out and play. Taps played taps and after they finish playing taps. A voice of god just said conan o'brien. I walked out to taps asks was my and look. I'm not listen. It's about the cause. And it's all of that. But actually i had to talk about. Do you understand the situation. I'm in right now. And that ended up being the thing that i think helps us turn it around and obviously my my struggles in that moment paled in comparison to the sacrifice that all these people had made but i was just thinking. It's that was. That's a moment where i talk about moments where you remember. Remember being backstage and they start to play taps and then hearing my voice and almost wanting to be. I'm thinking i'm sure glad i'm not that fucking guy and realizing i'm that fucking guy you know but i've been watching as i said i've been watching your honor and this character playing michael seattle and again You're you've chosen this role. That i think speaks to a lot of the work that you've already done And you're so you're well prepared for this. But it's something where i understand everybody's motivation. I and i'm wary of giving away too much about the show but as a dad is someone who's got a teenage son and daughter. Your son does something and your character. A judge is trying to save your son. But you're you're doing all these things that are compare completely anathema to who you are as a judge but i understand every single thing. You're doing i understand why you're doing it by its its. That's i think what really makes the show. So riveting is that. Yeah it's it's it's. It's a tough of the premise. Got me and i would present that to your listeners. To ask all seven of them if you were told there's an eighth okay. We're told there's an age we don't have proof but we're told this if you were presented with the the real belief that your son or daughter was being threatened with their life. Would you become criminal to save their life. And i haven't talked to anybody who said no. Yes right they would becoming. I would do that. And so i sit in this premise. My character is a is a superior court judge and he tries to convince his son. Who was i talked about the premise. The premise is that my son is involved in a hit and run accident. He panics and leaves the scene of the accident and the boy he hit on a motorcycle dies. And he's distraught with that. Of course he realizes. He made a huge mistake when he confesses bid to me convince him to do the right thing. We're going to the police station. We're gonna turn you in and we're going to be responsible and accountable for our actions. However at the police station. I discover the parents of the dead boy is a mob boss deadly dangerous mob boss and i know with every ounce of my being that that guy is going to kill my son no matter what. And that's the thing that turns it around and my character than t. uses all of his law background as a lawyer and as a judge to be able to say. Okay how do i reverse engineer. What actually happened and create an alibi destroy evidence manipulated jury and to to get this into the so that my son stays alive and of course whenever you try to become someone you're not it's a slippery slope to destruction and that's what happens it's It's quite good. The actor who plays your son is amazing undoing. Just when you're describing it if you don't like the sun or sympathize because when you lay the story.

"I had the pleasure a little. Bit of getting to know vince. Gill again i got. I've had gone to have a meal with him a time or two and he recently My wife and i went to the theater and he was sitting right in front of us being a real. Dick cackling the play. When was this. When did you go to play. I went to place. Pre covid. Obviously just pre cocoa yeah. The play was called. Ironically the play can never come here and starring humphrey bogart. No such a lovely guy. And i'm thinking it's so funny because you you met vince gilligan. In this period of your life were you doing a wasn't an x. Files that you were a Nineteen ninety eight. I was doing around a guest starring on anything that will have me and and there was a a role on the x files that he wrote. I didn't know who he was. But i got that role and it was a character. That was really kind of despicable and is antisemitic and he was bigoted on every level. And just an an ornery asshole. A guy and he needed it was an it was an invitation to to learn the the nuance and the brilliance of vince. Gilligan's rioting so the concept was that Moulder david coveney's character had to drive in a westerly direction at eighty miles an hour or my character. My head would explode. I'm in the backseat. It's messy so they're always rewriting the same old things the old eighty miles west. My attleboro up that will make it. Eighty miles east. Got where he's driving. He's driving in the car and he's got gotta keep it up or my headaches or it's gonna explode now. Most writers would have written my character to be sympathetic to be nice to be a good guy and so that the hero the star of your show. Yeah david save that guy. He's a nice guy but you're not invested in that that's an obvious. So what gilligan did was make my character awful despicable human being which puts the moral dilemma in the center of your lead character. Is this man worth saving simply. Because he's a human being what he would love to do is just pull over and watch me explode. But he can't do it that's the brilliance of it so as he starts developing that i go away for seven years. I do malcolm in the middle i. I didn't didn't really become a friend. I didn't know him. And then after malcolm finishes i get this call. That vince gilligan wants to see me do you remember him. He remembers you. And i said i don't know who that is he's a. He was a writer on x. Files and he's doing a show called breaking bad i go. What does that mean he goes. Well nobody really knows but do you wanna meet him and i said yeah. He remembers me. Okay and so far. You're coming off as really curious and surly in this story was. I don't know what does that mean shenanigans. It's never getting better than malcolm in the middle. Fuck car so i go to talk to him and i but i read his script and it's just the best one hour script i have ever read. It just kept me going. I was so sympathetic toward this character. And that was his genius that he he told me in the meeting that he wants to change he he wants to bring about change of the lead character. He wants to take him from a good guy to a bad guy and i said i don't think that's ever been done before because the look of the characters. Tony soprano was always tony. Soprano vic mackey was him. Every character is the same. They adjust a slightly to impetus that comes into their lives but by large the same character..

What i imagine is a lot of familial pain. You're going through just so much stuff at an early age and acquiring so much that you could probably draw on you know and then your your career. You have this enviable career. I mean with malcolm in the middle alone. I remember it always marveling at your comedic abilities on that show you were just absolutely fantastic and thinking. A lot of people would be satisfied with that. Your career really took a while. It took a while. Well i tell you what took awhile was notoriety and celebrity. I was working steady as an actor. Since i was twenty. Five years old As forty years for me. So i've been working for forty years but since twenty five years old i have been only working as an actor for a living When i was forty. I got malcolm in the middle. When was fifty. Got breaking bad sixteen. I'm doing broadway and It's like a renaissance. I was just talking about this the other day with humphrey bogart and he was giving me some. This will haunt me forever. I swear to god in citizen king comes in one moment and offers orson welles suits s. I finally had served as what the meeting of rosebud and he said. These magical words to me said get the fuck away from me. That sounds like that. sounds like him. Yeah i had the pleasure of seeing you on broadway. In all the way we played lyndon johnson. And i was just delighted delighted by that performance. And as and i just thought to myself. You're having the right kind of career. Maybe the perfect kind of career where things just seem to keep getting better and better and better and yes it it was on a low simmer but this is the way probably for it to lay out. Don't you think you could if you could pick away for to layout appreciate you categorizing. My career as a low simmer simmer that led to a boil. I'm talking about a low simmer led to look if it's always boiling the beans. Come out of the pot you once you get the boil you lance the boil..

"A police explorer in high school and i was pretty good at it and so that seems like a pragmatic thing to do. So i'll i'll do that and then in college. I took an elective course in acting i got to kiss this really pretty girl in a scene in the first day in class and i thought oh my god this is the greatest thing in the world and then i thought i thought this this girl also really likes me so this is the easiest date i'm ever going to have and so i asked her out and she said no. I have a boyfriend. And then i realized oh she was just acting i swear to you. I thought she really liked me. My head is exploding now. And so at the end of two years it was either. I'm transferring to a university to continue police science courses or i run away and i ran away. Basically hopping on a motorcycle and leaving. The state for two years was running away. And in retrospect. I find that i needed to go get lost so that some day i could be found instead of locking myself into a position where i was. Just gonna take the easy road and follow suit of what i was training for and realized i wasn't going to make the best policemen that i could have and it really opened my eyes so it was it was to grow up. It was too mature and find some adventure and figure out what i really wanted to do. There's no way probably. I can't prove this but i don't think you could be possibly doing the kind of work at the level that you're doing it if you hadn't thrown yourself out there for a while that's for sure. I always tell my daughter to that whenever something bad happens it's going to make a great story if everything in your life Was terrific and beautiful and no hurdles to leap over and no stumbling and where where are the lessons. You're going to get from that. And by the way we're the stories every single story worth it worth. Its merit comes from a place of failure somewhere along the line. The hero stumbles and fails and has to get back up and achieve or overcome a fear or an inadequacy or something. That's those are the best stories we wanna watch. And if you have a collection of those in your real life you're actually lucky for. Remember that that line in a billy joel song. You have no scars in your face. You cannot handle pressure right know. It's like you need some some life some lines on your face. Some scars to to know how to behave. And how lucky you are right now is a famous story about humphrey bogart. Who later in his career. You know around the time of citizen kane. He would tell the makeup people. Don't make me look too good. Let people see what. I really look like because i've earned that face and that's the face of an actor who's been places and done things. That's i've got news for you though he wasn't in citizen kane. I'm sorry did. I say there's not sorry caine mutiny. Cain well level hold on you know what i find is best rather than admit i made a mistake. I'm gonna cover it by saying late in life. Humphrey bogart was diluted. He went through. He went through a period delusion where he thought that he was orson welles and was in citizen kane. Well thanks for catching that. I meant kane mutiny. I didn't want you get all those emails dummy all urine. It'd be matic. That'd be matt youtube for not correcting me. A can't believe chris in catching walter white would have caught that when you were driving around motorcycle..

When you're in your early twenties and what brought that about and who is that guy still in you. Are you still that guy. Yeah you don't wanna know him. You're like clint eastwood in the unforgiven. Not like that anymore. Back when try to make this short. There was a lot of confusion in my childhood. A lot of discontent. My family unit exploded. When i was eleven and split up and i live with my grandparents for a while and i didn't know what i wanted to do and i thought i would become a cop because i became a police explorer in high school and i was pretty good at it and so that seems like a pragmatic thing to do. So i'll i'll do that and then in college. I took an elective course in acting i got to kiss this really pretty girl in a scene in the first day in class and i thought oh my god this.

Oh that's fantastic but you never ever look to take job because you think it's going to get you nominated for something jason. Sean will now brian. This is this is the other thing i have to admit to you. Now that we're sitting here talking to each other. I was really really late to the breaking bad game. And i we've we've met each other passing through the business over the over the years. You've always been so kind. And i've always looked up to. You is one of the most talented people in the business and somebody's finally. You've you haven't seen breaking bad. You've got to see it so i just watched it like a year ago two years ago and so this is really kind of crazy for me to meet to see right now again was like holy shit so much fresher in my mind than your from the notes though. Brian daboll locked shows pictures locked. Definitely little thing. Yeah yeah not a big deal honestly honestly not just a slight adjustment actually wanna know when you were making that show did you feel that storytelling kind of that satisfaction making it because the writing was so strong performances were off the hook. But did you feel that sense of like every time you got a script going like. Yes as we know. It's all about the strength of the writing. If if it's there then you can elevate that and really embracing but if it's not there there's there's not much you can do. The pilot. script was audacious. He's what he's wanted right. He told me he said. I want to change the lead character from a good guy to a bad guy and i thought that's never been done. Yeah even tony. Soprano was who he was right vic mackey and all these characters that came before but to actually change a character at focal without knowing how many seasons you guys were gonna get. Were there conversations with vince about how you were going to calibrate that arc based on not knowing whether it was going to be a three season arcaro six season arc for the to land the plane where that character goes. He didn't really know what kind of angle he could. Put the pitch at right now. That's the good thing about Vince gilligan zayed's His that he said. Well i don't know they're gonna let me do this but we'll just give it a try. They'll probably cancel us within the first six. I know they will not gonna let us do what i wanna do. A hell would just give it a try and just and and the actors are the ones with the anxiety and insecure. People always ask us. Did you know your show will and grace or arrested or and did you know that was going to be a hit..

Bryan Cranston on new TV drama "Your Honor"
"Bryan cranston. The star of amc's breaking bad returns to series television for the first time since that show left. The air in a new showtime miniseries called your honor which begins on sunday. Cranston plays a new orleans. Judge whose life is torn apart after his teenage son gets into some sudden and very serious trouble are tv critic. David be cooley. Has this review bryan. Cranston had played the goofy dad on the fox sitcom malcolm in the middle then. Redefined himself brilliantly as walter white. The meek high school chemistry teacher in breaking bad. What made walter break. Bad was the sudden news that he had contracted terminal cancer leading to a series of increasingly momentous decisions. In the new showtime miniseries. Your honor cranston returns to series tv playing another character who gets some sudden life changing news. This time he plays. Michael desio a compassionate judge in new orleans and a single parent raising his teenage son after the death of his wife a year ago in an unexpected tragedy. On the day of that saturday anniversary the sun adam played by hunter. Doohan experiences an unexpected tragedy of his own after leaving flowers at the convenience store where his mother was an innocent bystander. Shot by robbers has an asthma attack while driving away he searches for his inhaler on the passenger seat and as he takes his eyes off the road he slams into a motorcycle driven by another teenager. Adam after returning home tells his father what happened next. Where did this happen. Okay okay so would be the new hospital. Then the emeralds. Taken to what in new orleans and i don't know well the police must have sex. Overweight drove away before the tried to can give you called nine hundred time to try to at least yes or no please. I could breathe okay. I got you guys. This ten part series begins like the. Hbo mini series the night of following a young man. He descends deeper and deeper into a horrifying spiral of accidents and consequences that engrossing 2016 mini series was created by peter moffett who adapted it from his own british series. Moffitt is the adapter of your honor as well but this time he's not working from his own story showtimes. Your honor is his new version of a twenty seventeen. Israeli drama called ca- votto which has the same basic plot and is available of sample on youtube but for this adaptation for the united states. The location is changed in new orleans and other elements are given an american spin from police brutality. To local criminal activity one thing stays the same though. And it's thing that makes your honor so gripping from the start the father doing the right thing as both a judge and a citizen escorts his son to the police station to turn them in with an explanation but when he gets there he sees the father of the victim and recognizes him as a powerful local mob boss. All of a sudden the judge realizes that to turn his son in would be to signed his death warrant so from that point on. What is the right thing to do. And how many people does he have to enlist or deceive to do it. There's a certain flavor of breaking bad this because we're essentially put in the position of sympathizing with and rooting for a person who's breaking and avoiding the law but that's not a complaint because breaking bad may be the best tv drama series ever made and bryan cranston once again crafts a marvelously nuanced and empathic performance. And in your honor. He's not alone. The executive producers in addition to moffitt in cranston include robert and michelle king the talented creators of the good wife. So both the characters and the legal twists are fully drawn hundred. Doohan as the judge's son has the same relatable acting skills cranston and needs to since he carries most of the show's opening our and other riveting characters and actors abound michael stool barred from. Tv's fargo plays. The mob boss and hope davis plays his wife as very fierce and involved sort of carmela soprano to his tony and while margo martindale from justified in. The americans doesn't show up as the judges mother-in-law until episode four. Wow is she worth the wait. The writers on your honor include moffitt himself and the directors include clark johnson. An actor and director way back on homicide life on the street and edward. Berger who did a marvelous job directing another showtime miniseries patrick metros showtime provided only four of the ten episodes of your honoring advance. Each one. both impressed and surprised me and made me hungry to see the next cranston's michael ziada is smart enough to think on his feet and almost every scene requires him to do just that to avoid exposure endanger and to protect his only son whatever the repercussions to others the series title. Your honor isn't just the judge's work title. it's also at the center of the show. When it comes to your family would you do to save them. And what effect will that have upon your moral code your relationships with others and your honor

We need to know who they are. The public has a right to know still the czar especially from hollywood. What if all places a play place that was in many ways a victim of you know <hes> of of <hes> political opinion hurting their standing in society right. I mean if you go back and watch <hes> <hes> the movie trombone trombone <hes> it was <hes> it was bryan. Cranston is fantastic <hes>. He's a great right actor but he's you know it's the movie is about this guy hollywood writer who was legitimate socialist slash communist and and you know he went through that era where you know <hes> hollywood actors were being targeted. Writers were being targeted. They'll make movies showing how terrible of an idea this is like. It should never happen. Don't we all realize that you shouldn't vilify someone based on their political views by the way let's docs all the trump voters like the how can the same cranston said that to be clear but i mean it's it's a it's an amazing disconnect all the people you'd think <hes> that are out there right now that would understand that you shouldn't take political opinion in vilify people and throw the matt society you'd think it would be hollywood and we keep coming back to the same thing when you get someone fired because they have horrible political views the end game because of the society that you you have built progressives. Is we pay for them. We all give them money to support them so they can stay home and do nothing. That is the end game of your cancelled culture. It is ridiculously stupid idea because all you're doing now is instead of saying well. They should go out and earn money from their fans. You're saying they should go out and stay home instead and and we'll pay them to stay home and do nothing will pay for their health-care obey their unemployment. We'll pay for all these other things. There is no benefit in this and you know i i hope i mean look will will and grace. It's not exactly you're not talking list at this point <hes> it's.

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.

Bryan Cranston is mad as hell on Broadway in 'Network'
"When the movie network was released in theaters in nineteen seventy six you could count the number of TV channels on one hand. There was no twenty four hour news, no cable, and no internet network was dark satire about a news anchor who was fired for lagging ratings who then ranted against our addiction to TV only to become a ratings hit. And at all struck a nerve. I wanted to get up right now. Go to the window open it and stick your head out and yell. I'm mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take this anymore. I want you to Peter Finch when a posthumous Academy Award for his lead performance. Now, his character of anchorman. Howard Beale is being played by Bryan Cranston in a stage adaptation of network on Broadway out of your tears right now. Go to the window open. It stick out your hedging, yo. And I want you to go. How I take this anymore. The play was adapted by Lee hall from petty chef skis screenplay when I recently spoke with Cranston. He told me how he imagined Beal's life before he loses it on live TV when I choose projects. It's something that really moves me already. I without any effort at all. I start daydreaming about a project that I really am attracted to. And I know that's a good sign it stayed with me. It resonated. And so I just follow those instincts in what Patty and Lee had put together, and I came up with Howard Beale being and feeling irrelevant past his prime that he was about to go out to pasture and his wife has passed. He has no children. So he's basically alone. He's an island unto himself. And you'd think that some that person is reaching out to find connection connectivity with other human beings, but to serve the play. I realized that he had to invest in his aloneness and that deepened his sense of depression. And so it's out of that kind of low ebb that all these things are starting to transpire. In other words, he's a man with. Doubt anything to lose. And then he gets fired at the top of the show. And so he's like to heck with it. All. He drinks too much. He's he doesn't take care of himself. He doesn't eat. Well, he doesn't sleep. Well. And he's headed for a collision course, and he does in a way. But fortunately for him. It's more of an epiphany. He does have a sense of enlightenment that hits him and he tries to use that as a device to be able to communicate to his to his viewers. The other thing that was important about Howard Beale. And this is what Diana who is the woman who comes in to promote his rage says Howard Beale sat there last night and said what every American feels that. He's tired of all the B S Bs is my word not the place where he's our ticky relating the popular rage. Not gonna trick. You. Let's go. Let's look. Oh, look. You know, I I think that's also where Patty chef ski was on top of things that Howard Beale is tapping into something that is almost primal. And there's a moment in the play where the audience is encouraged to share in that rage, and that anger, and I'm wondering where you feel that fits into its relevance. And what it's like to hear the audience become as whipped up as they can be whipped up on any given night. We'll play is intended to entertain. But the most important thing that any storyteller. Whether you're on stage or film or television is to elicit an emotional response. I would rather have someone be angry at my performance than board. If I don't move them to some emotion, I feel like I've failed. So in this case, Patty and our production team for the. The version of has created an instigation to be able to light a fire under people. And actually when we get them to say, I mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take it anymore. It's giving them permission to be angry as a legitimate emotion. And I think our society has been lacking in that we can accept someone who's irritated or sad or. Despondent. But anger has not been an embraced emotion for many, many, eons, we see someone who's angry we will get away from that for that. Or that's and usually as a human being it's appropriate to be tolerant and accepting and embracing of of all different beliefs in opinions and religions and lifestyles, it isn't lovely thing to do as a human being to be more open to the quirks and idiosyncrasies of human beings. But perhaps right now in this unprecedented. Time in our country's history. Perhaps. Now, the appropriate emotion is anger because anger does stimulate activity. I remember in the sixties when anger stimulated a whole movement of antiwar protests and songs and art, and and style and plays and movies, and it it was a a movement that really moved the needle and had an influence on our political leaders in that period of time, and maybe there's room for that now, and it can really help to promulgate change.
