"Jeez, who did the voice of Mufasa, Darth Vader. James little John. Thank you. Yeah. But they have somebody else for the voice of scar. And it, to me, it should be Jeremy Irons again.

You're not excited about anything coming up. Well, it's interesting. It's like being in the position of seeing everything that comes out. I want to keep an open mind about it. I'm excited about the marwin or whatever this Steve Carell movie. I'm curious about it, because it's Robert's mechanism. Oh. You know, you know, I think he can surprise you.

Casey Affleck gets me every time. But yeah, I don't know that. I'd say that one. Man, I'm curious about the movie they're doing with Bryan Cranston as a paraplegic and Kevin Hart as the guy who Jesus. It becomes his caretaker. Yeah. Again, that seems like it's based on a true story, but I just imagine like a studio executive like finishing his line of blow and looking up. It's like, oh, Kevin Hart is the guy who's taking care of him. Yes, none. Write him a check. We're done. Can we get Kevin Hart to sit the fuck down? Sit a few plays out. We can't tell if he's sitting there or not. Kevin Hart, how about short joke? A little bit of Kevin Hart goes a long way. A little bit of Kevin Hart. Goes a long way. So in certain comedians, yeah, just need less. Kevin Hart's last good movie was 40 year old virgin. That's true. I think Dave Chappelle's last movie was con air. So he was about half baked, wasn't that after? Maybe? I don't know. Late 90s were a blur for me, man. Well, this has been moving. And Todd will offer Travis bud. Signing off.

Who the fuck plays Ivan dragos son in the second one? It's a Russian boxer. He's huge and no name ugly hand. I mean, he got it. And he has ten lines in the whole movie, probably, but it does a good job. And Dolph Lundgren returns. Yes, honestly, that's the thing I was most excited about for the second one. And Brigitte Nielsen returns as his yep. So spoiler alert fuck trophy? Cool. Yeah. There we go. That's excellent. But yeah, it was good. It was entertaining. I also heard that this is Sylvester Sloan's last flick. He said he might be putting the rocky character to bed. Hey, you know, I believe that when I see it. Oh, Michael B. Jordan right in the sunset. I don't know. I think it works better with him doing the bird just Meredith thing.

Meanwhile, back on Planet Earth. So yeah, it was good. It was. Guys, I'm on my third drink. Todd got me a very nice beer and I got me a lovely glass. And I told him I just wanted to beer in my s'mores glass. So I poured it in there. And I'm drinking chocolate beer essentially now. And he told me this beer is brewed with like maple maple syrup. So this is maple syrup, chocolate beer I'm drinking. I'm activated. It's dog for shed 75 minutes. I'm ready. I needed to cover it in the home. Gibberish about the throat losses.

I mean, it was the, you know, it was a very special episode of blossom. Yeah. But funny. And yeah. Got the job done. It was decent. What else? I mean, my favorite orphan is Lauryn Hill is distracted back in the habit. That's right, where she runs away, she's like, oh, no, I don't know what's happening and then bring her back because she's got a great voice. Are the kids in earnest Christmas orphans? If so, they are my favorite orphans. I don't know. If you're asking, yes, a Hernandez saves Christmas is my favorite Christmas movie. Bar none. Oh, we were talking about this. I gotta say it. Trading places. Another movie, Christmas movie. It starts Thanksgiving though, right? I think it does, yes. And then it goes all the way into Christmas and new year's. But if you're really in the mood, you can say, it's Christmas movie. I mean, it has a message for the whole world. Thanksgiving. Yeah. Also, Jamie Lee Curtis cans. That's exactly right. And if that's not a hashtag after this, I'm gonna be really disappointed. But innocent families good. It's your family was good, and then what did I do? I was good. He's good. I mean, he's, you know, he's always pretty reliable. He's really except for the happening. Except for the happening, except for the Planet of the Apes remake, which wasn't really his fault.

Yeah, I haven't seen those either or rocky Balboa. It's all rocky Balboa, when it came out, it was good. I thought it was a decent it benefits from being way better than 5. Here's my question. Why are they making so many rocky movies and now he's gonna maybe do another Rambo? Where in the ever living fuck is MySQL to over the top. Or cobra, part two. Stop or my mom will shoot again. If nobody remembers over the top, it's all about Sylvester Stallone, who being a truck driver, and he has a machine in his car that he can work out his right arm or left arm fuck. I don't know. As he's driving so he can then and his downtime enter arm wrestling competitions. To make money on the side. And the way that he activates himself to get ready for a match is he takes his baseball cap and switches it to where it's backwards and he goes, it's like a switch. Turns me on, and then I'm like, a machine. These are lines that are in this movie. And then he's also trying to get his son back or get his son to love him. From a marriage, I'm crazy.

Travis is trying to work that into more sentences. Sorry. So also, they did surgery on a grape. I hate to hate to do it, but I did it. You just gotta move on. The cool thing is when we get famous when we get notoriety, people go back to these early episodes. It's like, oh yeah, see, this is a product of it's time. They're dropping pop culture references of the moment. I'm dating this. Yeah. Yeah, those guys are keeping it 100. So. Any other guilty pleasures? Well, let's see. I mean, obviously those are two of the two of the big ones. And it's weird that you had Spice Girls in the brain early because the Spice Girls are like my music, guilty pleasure. You know, I don't know why. I don't know why. Which, which one is, is your girl? I'm gonna go baby. I'm gonna go against the grain while everybody says Ginger. What is everybody saying? No, I see posh, or scary. I'm uncle baby. I'm gonna go with the ball. Yeah, we're sporty. Honestly, jinger, and maybe you're at the bottom. Really? Interesting. I mean, the Gilligan's island of the two, you know, the top three Spice Girls go. Top three. We're talking like in terms of we're not doing fuck marry kill. Just. Number one, number two, three. If you're going for seeing talent, I would say nope, in general. Okay, just overall, like, who's your favorite? I would go baby. Sporty. And Ginger spice in that order. All right. I think I would go posh. It's unpredictable. Yeah. And then I think I'd go. Scary and sporty. Scary, it's boring. Okay. But that's, and that's maybe what I like about him is that there's something there for everyone to love. Yes. You know, it truly is a fun for the whole family. Yeah. There's a spice girl for you. Yes. You know? I mean, in a way, and I can't believe I'm gonna say this. This is because I'm a huge Beatles fan, but it's like The Beatles, you know?.

"I've seen that quite a few times. Freddy prince. Freddy prince junior and then that one girl with a squished face. Got the one girl, and it's like, to me, it's crazy because both of those movies are built on the idea of no guys with date either of those girls. Yeah, both of those movies are, I don't know. I don't know what it is about them. It's like, every time I go back and watch never been kissed, it's like, how many times have I quoted this movie? How many times have I said, I'm not Josie gross anymore. I quite a few. Quite a few times. I'm learning so much more about you now. I've never made that connection. And I think what you watch when no one's around says a lot about you. But I think that's a bold. It's a bold reveal into your life. But yeah, even cheese all that. I've watched that a lot of times. Also, what I like to watch, the first Twilight movie. It's quite the love story. Yeah. I just knew it was about vampires. That's all I knew. I went and saw it in theaters, nobody else wanted to go. I was like, all right, so we have to do this. But for some reason, do you ever watch a movie because you like, I don't know, it's like a rainy day movie and it has weather in it that you enjoy? No, I don't know. The 1998 Matthew Broderick Godzilla just rains the whole way. It's a shitty movie, but if I'm in the mood for like rainy environment, I'll be like, I'll just put this on in the background. Or yeah, also the, for some reason, yeah, the forks Washington and Twilight is the same thing. I was just like, oh, it'd be nice to live there. No. Other than that, it kind of mean a little bit..

"Cinema vino. Todd wofford and this Travis bud. Hi. His episode four of 5 recorded. Tonight we're going to talk about guilty pleasure movies. You know, the movies that you may be ashamed to admit that you love. I think everybody has them there. The movies that you can watch anytime and binge and feel a little bit guilty about it. So, yeah. And then we'll talk about the new movies. And we're going to drink a little chocolate sangria, which is a concoction of my own making. Just because it's decadent and it fits into the idea of guilty pleasure. And we've already had one. Yeah, or one deep. Oh wait, I'm Wendy. He's one deep. I'm zero deep, so I'm trying to play catch up. And we both got 13 marshmallows. Yeah, I mean, that's one of the stipulations on our riders. We have to have 13 marshmallows floating in our chocolate sangria. What it all is in this. Okay, I'm gonna put the recipe on the website too that way you can actually visualize it. You put the recipe on the website, but I want to fuck this drink. Travis wants to dry out the sangria. It is Hershey's syrup as a base, and then it is choco vine, which is not chocolate red wine, mixed. And a shot of whipped cream vodka and milk, topped off at marshmallows. And we put some ice in it because it didn't taste quite right when it was room temperature. Yeah. Think of it as coffee you could do it you could warm the milk and do it warm and do hot chocolate or you could do it like cold. Yeah. Chaco vine is a little bit like it's kind of Bailey's esque, but not as thick. It's got some baileys to it, but I definitely wouldn't put it in coffee. No. No. So we'll start with you. What's your guilty pleasure movie? What do you like? I mean, I've got several. The latest one I just thought of was Howard the duck. I don't know why I loved it. The idea of a short person in a duck costume running around, I think I didn't realize until I actually saw it on DVD that there's duck nudity in it as well at the beginning. Yeah. That was weird. No. I've heard other people say that they that's a movie they love..

"They're nice to their dogs if they don't turn them into glue or something. Well that's the problem with show dogs so much. I mean. I don't know but it seems like it puts a lot of pressure on these dogs to perform that have just been there and being a companion. Yes and something. I really like one. One reason why. I am Such a fan of the hound breed in general because they are kind of like clowney. You know they're not really even if you train them. They're still amazing to me how much we use bloodhounds for police. Detective work and stuff because they are so ridiculous so it's like one would be running and then it would just turn around and jump on its owner and they're just big babies and so everybody was like new that it's not really as something like a like i feel like Like a boston terrier showers. Everyone would be like nicely. Know what to do an cool. Whereas i feel like the bloodhounds were just like shaking and slobbering. Hoping that someone's drool would fly on me. Oh jesus jerusalem fun and then what. I drove home. I was just like thank you thank you thank you thank you and then i felt so happy and then i charged up my phone and then i a message from my friend erica. Who wrote an extra plus one to like pasta event in west hollywood even like what am i i. And then i drove up immediately She had basically this like she doesn't eat that much because she's so skinny and wonderful but she had like a special date for a free dinner like five meal in west hollywood pasta dinner. And i'm just like. I really love my life a lot and not nebraska way but just very grateful life. I don't think that's even bragging because like you went to a bloodhound. Dog show and then a all. You can eat olive garden festival. Whatever it was like i don't. I don't think a lot of people would be so jealous of that right. Probably not so when you're like i'm not bragging. What's their version. whatever it is. you didn't say like oh yeah and then. I hung out with beyond say and we got free. You know mac book proser so it's like an awful to me. No but i'm saying that's something that i can see people going. Oh man. i could've gotten that. But like i think people go so you've got a plate of spaghetti. All right yeah. I'm not jealous jealous. Feels i feel like. I'm so rich. I honestly feel like i'm like if i close my eyes and imagined like a happy to happy days. Now man happy places watching my friend. Erica work it out with the waitress of what she's going to order because she's one of those people that like has all these food. Things really does a good job of like for real nut eating crappy. Yeah and she actually asks what's like in a meal and then eat healthy. Yeah well good for her influential. Yeah she's on camera lot. Yeah she's my favorite thing like there's this great story that patent oswald told about when he was working on radha to you. It's all about food and stuff. And then they were at the like the food table. I think at the premiere or something and it was like him and brian dennehy. You know brian You would know him. If he saw him he was from cocoon Anyway anyway And he was just like. Brian dennehy leaned over and said character actors because both of them are kinda plump guys character actress who gives a fuck of where fat because nobody was eating the crass food table you know. Nobody was any of this amazing food. Everyone's skinny and beautiful and it's like. Yeah but we're fucking character actors. Look that's why that's one good thing about standup as we talked in a reason episode do it doesn't it almost harder if you're like have a perfect physique and you're like all premium proper right. That's what i was saying. It does if somebody walks up on stage and they're like strikingly like like an nine or a ten. You're almost like okay. But are you funny on instagram. You decided you're gonna try and that's awful to say but we we do profile so when you walk up on refunding fucking funny funny. It's like what do you look. And then my other lasting and my whole life is that then i did i. Finally i redeemed myself. And i had a a non so awful show Show yeah downtown. it was it was like part of a cool art event and it was really fun but the audience at first. I'm like oh no. Everyone's like in their young twenty s and really good looking and they were. They had these like rings. You know like muscle. Jim that you can kind of like hold onto ruler. Yeah it's like this art studio. That has all these different things. And i think just to be like fun. They have these rings in the middle where you can like jungle gym. You can just go drink. These girls were getting up on the ring and one was like going upside down on her nice dress and stuff. It was crazy and so anyway. This is my audience. We're now. I have to talk about like emotional eating. I really but i think they loved it. Because i thought it was very funny and they kind of got it right and then like The afterwards people were just they they definitely got it and they were laughing but then when someone we were it wasn't a huge crowd of probably like thirty people are so but then people were like almost talking to me like during my set because it was very close to them and how but i don't mind actually i really love that. I actually the crowd work. Yeah yeah i think. I think i would probably like that too just in the style of comedy that i would end up doing which is like very like i would tell a story i can bounce back and forth from it. Yes like over here okay. Where was i must go back there. Until i said something about gwyneth. Paltrow or something and someone said it's because she's a white woman in there. The other thing i like was the crowd was very diverse and so Someone said it's because he's a white women woman. I don't know where it came from. But i'm just like i fucking hate white women were the most annoying.

"Whenever you want very quickly all man that was sorry to see you actor Brian Dennehy a man died at eighty one well you know the thing is I always thought he was older yeah I did I just I just you know and I I saw that he died I wanna own must be in his nineties peak yeah because he's always just had that done to me in Rambo right when he was a as one of our listeners tweeted today but when he was the the sheriff of jerk water USA in Rambo exactly we talked about that a couple of months ago thanks fans and for us sending that to us yes and and he had that by the way it was Bob Brian Dennehy that fed to our Richard Crenna that line yeah right no that that he that he signed a you know talking to because the and by the way he he was great in that character because I hated his guts yeah hi yeah hi one of those guys he he just had that look you don't you there are certain actors where you they come in I've always said that James woods just you know when he plays a bad guy he just comes off as shady all you know that is not in in real games and he was he was in that movie was that movie was too long I'm not one great remember where he was a he was a monster James woods was a mobster yeah yeah yeah yeah it's when it's the long bloom up yeah I like a hotel in like a hotel room yelling els and woods was the sleaziest character you whatever it is that he always comes off as this year lease these yes Lyme the what is and what is not but it's it's and then gonna Brian Dennehy he just had that look of he wanted and and ramble is a perfect example in terms of movies and you know they did the ramble last blood I don't think Dennehy had a part of that I I don't know but it it's I think you know when you look at that first blood movie it really has I mean the feel of that the whole movie the the setting yeah the study not the cinematography is wonderful in there because it you know it it's definitely you know that it's definitely the great northwest you've got right fog you've got the colder weather yeah if you've got it yes stamp it yes yeah it's miserable yes you and you've got this guy who's just you know he's just looking to be left alone and then you get the sheriff of Chirk water coming coming along well and to harass them and the thing is I hate him so much because you know or brambles we know lost all of his friends in Vietnam right now you know we know what you he was a obviously he was like a special forces sniper don't kill people what I'm you know that was that your job more to begin with but all of all the guys who served what was dead and that's how the show started his rise to the one guy who was left and he died of an apparently you know Agent Orange and that was the lot and so you're feeling terribly sad for this guy who is a veteran lost everything and drifting yeah and then Danny he comes along as a sheriff and treats him like a piece of garbage right right exactly it doesn't ask may we know what you just heard to do whatever and then you I found out just yesterday Stallone wrote he said Brian Dennehy was so great because Brian Dennehy help me so much about the plight of Vietnam veteran because Danny he was a Vietnam veteran yeah wow and and so you said that you said adding up no I got a hate the character but but again he could do that he did that's a craft though you know that's the crap that's acting and and again you know you you see the number of roles he could play because he was there but then he was Tommy boy's father that's I saw one of the headlines because the first thing I think of as Rambo but then you know it as the as the news was coming out then I saw you know Tommy born house like man you know it was it was the funeral scene of Tommy boy yeah sorry it's a comedy but it this was the you know this was I think the the greatness of of a lot of the can we talk about this before a lot of the comedians that we lost that they have this you know this ability John candy habit to miss Farley certainly had it in Tommy boy where you're you're just you're felt sorry for the guy but you're laughing every time he runs as head into something I was never ever in fact I didn't like it at all physical comedy where you know bumping your head into something except for the three Stooges I really hated the physical comedy thing uhhuh I don't know why I just didn't like it at all until Chris Farley and Chris Farley you know whether he's just falling over forwarding crashing into a you know at a table on the set of SNL or he's bumping into you know that the huge beam the iron beam it out and and in Tommy boy or or any of these you know my movies where they just have a lot of heart and then you have you know a a Brian Dennehy come along and he's kind of that you know that of that authority figure that that leader that the that that Tommy boy in that case was trying to look up to and emulate it was it was you know I ate some it's interesting how we get attached we get attached to to the actors because we get attached to the characters and yeah even if they're a bad guy character you know because you you think oh my gosh I love to hate that guy well which means they did a good job even even in in Rambo when and the funny thing is that's the movie that we could talk a movie that five percent of our the our listeners have seen right mmhm mmhm ramble probably everyone has economic it's like everyone has seen Rambo yeah they the character that Brian Dennehy played but then remember the bar scene where he does the shop with Richard Crenna and they're just talking in a more normal way we see okay this guy you know you and but the I don't know I just I really one of my favorite movies of his was actually a hallmark movie and it's called the ultimate life and it's the it's the story of after the death of this this oil billionaire who was played by James Garner oh wow at this and his whole family garner's whole family anybody could leave the my is is his sons is neat everybody is just a complete leaders spoiled brat jerk that you could possibly imagine mmhm and so he really gives nothing to anybody but his one his grandson apparently he saw the light in him and sometimes his grandson was the same way just a jet setter you know party in doing everything else and his grandfather says that you know that that he videotapes after he's dead he does a bunch of video tapes and says you know look I'm going to and I'm a lawyer pulls them you know pulls his kid and you know and says look here's here's what you have to do you have a series of gifs coming in and the gifts are you know hard work and just doing everything the right way and he eventually gets his grandfather's inheritance which is two billion dollars but he's become a perfect guy at that point yeah right but the first scene the first gift that he gets as a gift of working you have to go out and work on this farm and build this huge fence and Brian Dennehy is the farmer is he's a friend of his give his a grandfather who died and died he is just to me he's just so relaxed he's just within the community don't get to work I did this I mean not no drama nothing no anger just now you got to do this and at the end you know the kids says you know like we're all right where is it is what it is worse to get worse to get worse again Brandon he just laughed and walked away walks away and the gift was to get to work right so this is this is not a it's not it's not a syrupy kind of hallmark movie like they are today right as I was back in two thousand five two thousand six I think that is a sequel to to it but and and I just love Brian Dennehy and that though he has great right because I went okay this is a complete different character not aggressive at all not over the top because when you look at the surface over the top Tommy boy yeah well there was over the top yeah and this was just a totally relaxed kind of mellow confident guy who was helping out an old friend save his grandson yeah so I mean it was it was he's you know he's gonna be missed a very very talented guy and you know it he had the presence yeah I mean you know a big guy was not a small guide and some and sometimes it is about a presence you know it's it's about being able to and I talked to an acting coach who was the acting coach for a couple of people who were on CSIA and cover the other actors who were on CSI and he and I this acting coach and I were doing a project to an industrial project together on video and we're sitting there during the break we were talking he said you know I have this one actor and he and I will tell you as a coach right he's not a great actor but he has a great presence in other words he's gonna show up he's gonna hit the mark he's gonna deliver the lines he's got the square jaw he's what every producer wants so he's always going to get work and he said then there are these actors that come in and they can morph into certain characters they can they can they look different in every role whether it's the even without make up they look different they just have a different look to them others are European actor and and I'm I'm blanking on his name right now I was just reading about him just yesterday thinking this guy looks different in every role not just because of his hair being different or anything else his face looks different I mean he looks like a different person and he said and this acting coach was telling me there are people that have the presence and they walk in and they basically command the room you know we said this about president trump you know he can be a rally with that tens of thousands of people and he is obviously they're here they're there for for him but he owns the room any room that he's then he owns immediately and those those actors have that same many of those actors have that same presence and I think Brandon he had that same presence on on camera he may not have been the star of the movie but when he was in a scheme he owned that senior center that stinks yeah he he he really did so yeah well we'll always be able to watch it won't jerk water USA I'm able to here that's there lies here lies John Rambo yeah the medal of medal of honor winner ways but you know what would you say a veteran of different yeah and counters all over he killed for vagrancy in your choir your water you that's Richard Crenna said that now brand done he got right down he set up the line for him in that so it's and and and it's great I mean that's what you want to do I mean you think about any I guess I'm acting scene where there's two people I think of the the the the diner scene between Pacino and deniro in heat and it's just this reckoning but look at the feeding off of each other and it was the first time they had actually been on camera together on the scene because in the godfather they weren't there were flashbacks to deniro you know then the separate scenes with Michael with Pacino but the the you know that scene where they play off of each other and and in that movie that he was setting up you know credit for all those great line only once he re released I'm up for that life you know the the funny thing is I I was thinking that when that movie first came out and I thought about it yesterday that scene in particular special we got the tweet from our listeners saying all while they share from jerk water you know has passed away right and and of course is because he listens to our show and we have talked about that a few times and but that would you know that was after the scene were rambles inside the cave and they use basically that.

"I was sorry to see actor Brian Dennehy a man died at eighty one but you know the thing is I wish I was older yeah I did I just I just yeah I mean I I saw that he died I wanna own must be in his nineties peak yeah because he's always just had that done to me in Rambo right when he was a as a one of our listeners tweeted today but when he was the the sheriff of jerk water USA in Rambo exactly we talked about that a couple of months ago thanks Hanson for us sending them to us yes and he had that by the way it was Bravo Brian Dennehy that fed to Richard Crenna that line yeah right no that that he that he said right you know talking to because the and by the way he he was great in that character because I hated his guts yeah hi yeah one of those guys he he just had that look you know you there are certain actors where you they come in I've always said that James woods just you know when he plays a bad guy he just comes off as shady all you know that he's not in in real hands and he was he was in that movie was at move west along one great remember where he was a he was a monster James was was a mob yeah yeah yeah yeah it's when it still on bloom up yeah I like a hotel in like a hotel room yelling els and woods was the sleaziest character you whatever magic always comes off as a ZZ NY yeah what is and what is not but it's it's and then you know Brian Dennehy he just had that look of he wanted and and rambles a perfect example in terms of movies and you know they did ramble last blood I don't think Dennehy had a part of that I I don't know but it it's I think you know when you look at that first blood movie it really I mean the feel that the whole movie the the setting the study not the cinematography is wonderful in there because it you know it it's definitely you know that it's definitely the great northwest you've got right Paul give got the colder weather yeah he's got it yes stamp yes yeah it's a miserable yes you and you've got this guy who's just you know he's just looking to be left alone and then you get the sheriff of Chirk Walker coming coming along well and to harass them and the thing is I hate him so much because you know we're brambles we now lost all of his friends in Vietnam right now you know we know what the he was an obviously he was like special forces sniper don't kill people what I'm you know that will that's your job more to begin with but all of P. all the guys you server was dead and that's how the show started he's going to see the one guy who was left and he died of an apparently you know Agent Orange and that was the lot and so you're feeling terribly sad for this guy who's a veteran lost everything and drifting yeah and then Danny he comes along as a sheriff and treats him like a piece of garbage right right exactly it doesn't as may we know what you just served to do whatever and then you I found out just yesterday Stallone wrote he said Brian Dennehy was so great mmhm because Brian Dennehy help me so much about the plight of Vietnam veteran because Danny he was a Vietnam veteran yeah while van and so you said that you set up no I got a hate the character but but again he could do that he did that's a craft though you know that cigarettes that's acting and and again you know you you you see the number of roles he could play because he was there but then he was Tommy boy's father well that's good I saw one of the headlines because the first thing I think of as Rambo but then you know it as the as the news was coming out and I saw you know Tommy boy and I was like man you know it was it was the funeral scene of Tommy boy yeah sorry it's a comedy but the well this was the you know this was I think the the greatness of of a lot of the can we talk about this before a lot of the comedians that we lost that they have this you know this ability John candy had to miss Farley certainly had it in Tommy boy where you're you're just you felt sorry for the guy but you're laughing every time he runs as head into something I was never ever in fact I didn't like it at all physical comedy where you know bumping your head into something except for the three Stooges I really hated the physical comedy thing I don't know why I just didn't like it at all until Chris Farley and Chris Farley you know whether he's just falling over forwarding crashing into a you know at a table on the set of SNL or he's bumping into you know the the huge beam the iron beam you know and and then Tommy Boyer or any of these you know about movies where they just have a lot of heart and then you have you know a a Brian Dennehy come along and he's kind of that you know that that authority figure that that leader that the that that Tommy boy in that case was trying to look up to and emulate it was the it was you know I ate some it's interesting how we get attached we get a chance to do the actors because we get attached to the characters and yeah even if they're a bad guy character you know because you you think oh my gosh I love to hate that guy well which means they did a good job even even in in Rambo when and the funny thing is that's a movie that we could talk a movie that five percent of our the our listeners have seen right mmhm mmhm ramble probably everyone has iconic it's like everyone has seen Rambo yeah to date the of character that Brian Dennehy played but then remember the bar scene where he does the shot with Richard Crenna and they're just talking in a more normal way we see okay this guy you know it and but the I don't know I just I really one of my favorite movies of his was actually a hallmark movie and it's called the ultimate life and it's the it's the story of after the death of this they're spoiled billionaire who was played by James Garner oh wow at this and his whole family garner's whole family anybody can leave the money is is his sons is neat everybody is just a complete leaders spoiled brat jerk that you could possibly imagine mmhm and so he really gives nothing to anybody but his one his grand son apparently he saw the light in him and sometimes his grandson was the same way just a jet setter you know party in doing everything else and his grandfather says that you know that that he videotapes after he's dead he does a bunch of video tapes and says you know look I'm going to and and the lawyer pulled some you know pulls his kid and you know and says look here's the way here's what you have to do you have a series of gifs coming in and the guests are you know hard work and just doing everything the right way and he eventually gets his grandfather's inheritance which is two billion dollars but he's become a perfect guy at that point yeah right but the first scene the first gift that he gets is a gift of working he has to go out and work on this farm and build this huge fence and Brian Dennehy is the farmer he's he's a friend of his give his a grandfather who died and died he is just to me he's just so relaxed he's just the tune the camera don't get to work I do this I mean not no drama nothing no anger just now you've got to do this and at the end you know the kid says you know like we're all right where is it as one of his worst again afterwards to get worse again Brandon he just laughed and walked away walks away and the gift was to get to work right so this is this is not a it's not it's not a syrupy kind of hallmark movie like they are today right as I was back in two thousand five two thousand six I think that is a sequel to to it but and and I just love Brian Dennehy in that though it is great right because I went okay this is a complete different character not aggressive at all not over the top because when you look at the sheriff was over the top Tommy boy yeah there was over the top yeah and this was just a totally relaxed kind of mellow confident guy who was helping out an old friend save his grandson yeah so I mean it was it was he's you know he's gonna be missed a very very talented guy and you know it he had the presence yeah I mean you know a big guy was not a small guy and some and sometimes it is about a presence you know it's it's about being able to and I talked to an

always be able to watch it won't drink water USA available here that's there lies here lies John Rambo yeah the medal of medal of honor winner ways but you know what would you say a veteran of different yeah and counters all over he killed for vagrancy in church choir your water you that's Richard Crenna said that not Brian Dennehy at random he set up the line for him in that so it's sad

whose death was reported Thursday bringing the total to twenty one the man was over the age of eighty five and had lived in a long term care facility before he died at a hospital according to state epidemiologist Angela Dunn we're working with the facility to make sure all staff and residents are tested state health officials are also developing a team of doctors and nurses to deployed in nursing homes and other long term care facilities in the event they need to see a surge in activity I don't have the story right in front of me but there was a story of New Jersey nursing home where they were just stack in the bodies yeah you know and then there's one again in the news today I think in queens New York where twenty four patients people in the nursing home have died from corona virus I think was the number was twenty four is quite high so this is not their nourishing home server are worried this is really exploding as well I mean all across their compromised people and a lot of times the health care workers in those places are taking care of several patients at the time and they don't have enough PP did change between every patient that they're helping well and they're just in close contact with them all the time they're always touching them and and you know helping them a state epidemiologist Angela Dunn and house speaker Brad Wilson said that house speaker Utah house speaker Brad Wilson's goal of opening the Utah economy by may first is that's what she said that's a great goal to have launch it may need to be done based on what the data shows I don't can pick a date yeah do you gently there and people are uncomfortable with this they want to know when is this going to be over and the scientists say well it will be over when the data tells us it can be over and people are happy at the end they were the only channel under Brad Wilson of the Utah state legislature said I know that it'll be may first do you know he this is the central state legislature you know they're talking virus and said can we agree that you'll be done with this so may first from the virus at all okay he did not need to talk to the virus he told of the virus he didn't even try

there's a story this morning about Singapore who had done a great job without flattening their Kerr and they started re opening things and yesterday they had the biggest one day spike in cases because people are so anxious to get back to normal they're not waiting the appropriate amount of time to make sure things have been let me ask you a little better for less he open it the best part I saw about it and I read it to you guys our fear was the end and I will mangle it because I don't have in front of me was you know we're saying we've got this curve flattened so it's okay to start doing stuff again is equal to well this parachute has has stopped my falling I guess it's okay to let you know take it off now hello hello do have slowed way down as I'm falling through the air so I guess I could take the pair I can take it off now yeah New York and other hot spots are experiencing prolonged peaks of the corona virus pandemic while southern states may not get hit as hard as earlier projected researchers from the prominent projection model cited by the White House plan to release new data on the pandemic today updated projections will show decreasing cases at a national level but extended peaks in hard hit areas I don't know why we can't act more like parents and children you know when your children say why can't I do this with Jimmy's dad lets me do this and you say well because we aren't and and they go well that's not fair and then you say well life's not fair I'm sorry we can't reopen your businesses and things now life's not fair the virus isn't fair I'm we will open it when we can open it and that's not now that's because we're not children Gina your children we don't buy that crap anymore okay saying your is Saint George Boehner by the way they were yesterday they were at it again today you might recall but they were there in the news we'll get to it I promise the fire that fire at the south Salt Lake apartment complex they still don't know what caused it but they're saying now that the start of that fire is suspicious it started outside the apartment complex in the carport that makes it suspicious to me right off the bat so but fire investigators are still looking into it here's something that'll cheer you right up the trump administration is expected to and I think they did yesterday I think they did this week in regulations on the release of mercury and other toxic metals metals from oil and coal fired power plants another step toward rolling back health protections in the middle of a pandemic the final environmental protection agency rule does not eliminate restrictions on the release of mercury a heavy metal linked to brain damage environmental lawyer said the new method of calculating the costs and benefits of curbing mercury pollution would most likely destroy the legal underpinnings of controls on mercury and many other pollutants by reducing the health benefit of regulations on paper while raising their economic cost the new method could be used to justify loosening restrictions on any pollutant that the fossil fuel industry has deemed it too costly to control listen it's too expensive to cut keep mercury from going into the water supply we just can't do it we're doing it Hey man and they say that stimulus tracks that have been going out to people in their bins glitches in that but some people are getting them and as Americans begin receiving the backs of their relief funds they're buying you know lots of things like an inflatable dinosaur costume which one buyer said it was totally worth I have a good use for it and then the people of somebody bought a stripper pole with their with their stimulus money it Katie that you bought a stripper pole with your spent stimulus money no I already had one oh well okay people are buying sex toys and and but you know in these are all unusual things things may be but even if you're just by and if you're just buying **** with your stimulus money you're still stimulating not only yourself but the economy just remember that you're stimulating yourself and the economy and I don't know this final story here I've had it in the file for a few days I just I'm just gonna put it out there there's a study out that said women with tattoos are more sexually open than other people the women with colored hair and tattoos seem to be judged differently than those without in fact some people think women who dye and bleach their hair are toxic and lethal do and it seems that there are stereo types made about women who are inked to namely that they are more sexually open in a study conducted by Kwantlen polytechnic university in Canada researchers wanted to study how accurate a stereotype that women with tattoos are more sexually open is and what factors may contribute to that but the purpose of the study wasn't to just identify whether women with cats are more thrill seeking but whether they exhibit higher levels of egalitarianism you know the belief that all people are equal and whether this contributes to sexuality lead authors found that women studied with those with tattoos did show more of a willingness to engage in uncommitted sexual relations they also sat out found that women with tattoos had higher endorsements for egalitarian ism that is we they believe the people are created equal and should be treated equally but the scientists note there's still more to know.

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.
