"Was right about not starting that conversation, and a lot of critics might agreed. Too many of them have a lot of bones to pick with this movie. This month's one a movie club will hopefully be a little bit less combative than the movie itself. So let's get into it with Aisha Harris, a co host for NPR's pop culture, Happy Hour. I usually welcome back Thank you for having me also with us John Horn. He hosts the frame and the podcast Hollywood. The sequel, both from KPCC John. It's always great to have you My pleasure to and Brooke Obi and award winning film critic and author Brooke Welcome back. Thank you so much for having me. John just just build out the plot of the movie and the characters a little bit more for us. Well, what it's about is about a couple that's having an epic fight, and it's prompted by the character played by John David Washington Malcolm He's a filmmaker who has finally made what he thanks and what might be actually a good movie. He has done a big premiere. He hasn't thanked. His girlfriend, Marie, played by Zendaya for her contribution to the film for Venus, partner for inspiring the story for actually borrowing some of her life to tell it and she come home after the premiere, and she's bothered by this light. And that that slight blows up into this epic fight where I don't know. Every possible kind of insult is exchanged on they just go at each other for 90, plus minutes. I won't say how it ends. It's kind of implausible, but it's about a couple fighting in the worst possible ways, and Malcolm is talking about art and how people should interpret art. On bears. Ah, there's a really bad attack on L, a Times film critic. But that's just the tip of the iceberg, I guess. Well, this is a little snippet of what people can expect during the movie. This is a clip of Malcolm eating a bowl of Mac and cheese that Marie made for him. And he's belittling her for being upset about his failure to thank her at his movie premiere, You know, Marie. You are genuinely Unstable..

"Film critic Ann Hornaday joins us Live on Skype to unwrap its secrets. Good to have you back and thanks so much. Thank you, Sean. So talk about Malcolm and Marie. What's it about? And is it worth a look? Well, you know, those of us of a certain age will recognize, um, some movies that this seems inspired by things like who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Remember that one with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton going at it over the course of a night or, you know the movies of John Kasich, Betty's Ingmar Bergman. We're talking about movies about couples. In crisis and they are fighting. They are making up their fighting again. And it's all unspools almost in real time. And this is by Sam Levinson, who happens to be the son of Barry Levinson. Who's filmed this very pointedly in black and white, I think to do pay homage to those other films starring John David Washington Ends and Dia who are both really good in this movie. The movie itself, I think is a little shallow with the little slight. It does manage. They have a few really memorable moments and get at some enduring issues between men and women. Um, it choose regarding race. He plays a black filmmaker coming home from a successful premiere, and she's his girlfriend who wants to kind of take him down a peg. And, um, so it's an interesting exercise, and I think it really comes alive. Especially, wasn't I? I mean, I've been watching her since my my little one was little when she was a child star, and she has really grown into quite I think an accomplished actress. I'm looking forward to seeing what out she'll do, and we have lost another legend and Cicely Tyson was truly of force on the screen, and apparently she was in person. Can you fill in the highlights of career and what you walked away with after interviewing her more than five years ago? Yeah, Hillary, what an icon and legend and she did receive the Kennedy Center honor in 2015, and I got to sit down with her for kind of a free ranging conversation. We talked about those iconic roles and things like roots and sounder and the autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. And what really came through to me was just how intuitive she was. I mean, she really was guided by Ah, very strong, inner spiritually voice that I think she Listen to and listening is such a big part of acting, and I think when you look at her strongest performances, that's what you see. You see somebody who is listening intently and who's responding in kind. And, um then she also had this determination, especially when it came to the roles that she accepted. She was absolutely determined. To take roles that reflected positively on her community for especially the younger viewers watching her. So there was this fascinating given take with her between and pure instinct. And pure intention, which I think really explains why she was just one of our greatest actresses. Such a presence. Thank you so much, and thanks, Sam. Thanks to you both. Thank you Both. Okay. Ann Hornaday is the Washington Post film critic to 14. Every time the Maryland.

Interview with John David Washington

"John David Washington who is the protagonist in Christopher Nolan's tenant talks about the stunt work they challenged me greatly Is. Groundbreaking stunt stunt work towards Katelyn Jackson Speidel fight coordinator, and all the guys were working together Groundbreaking we this has never been done ever in cinematic history cinema history and. These moves the way we're we're operating So creating them creating what we were doing and kind of finding it together with me I'll never forget it I'm so extremely proud of because we can say. I can say it was a part of what they started. You know how action films can start to be a shot and performed. It's really exciting. There were many fantastic shooting locations. I enjoyed basically every. Pretty much every stop and we made a you know someone challenging and others if you get seasick probably more challenging for you but I had an incredible time in Indiana heights as well. Speaking of India jumping off or jumping over a balcony climbing over balcony from that high up was quite challenging and I I I had a different relationship with heights before that movie. But now I say we're closer heights and I I think we're going to be okay you know it was lowered for a second put. I. Loved Mumbai. Loved Him Fico slicing across the Mediterranean on a boat that I got Dr Looking as cool as possible in the coolest clothes ever provided by Jeffrey I? You know that's the dream. Know I, kind of like the old school of not using as much green screen. Here's John David Washington. gave us a huge advantage when when thinking about an event film you most we see green screen and most of us audience members can tell me we when they're good. We're not as distracted but when they're bad, it kind of takes it's it takes you out of it. Well, that's not the case Christopher Nolan and he might he might be arguably the best event filmmaker in the. Game. So as an as an actor, it's extremely as it's an extreme advantage being able to use the real elements around us that we can use for the performance and it goes to show for me for my in my opinion why he loves and appreciates performance. So well, because he knows that we will affect us in a different way and we'll connect to it even deeper. And turn the audience while at the same time because he's relying on the characters in the performance to take the audience to the journey of these wide, you know huge scale and mass of set piece worlds that he creates.

2020 Fall Movie Preview

"Hi everybody I am Peter Travers and welcome to this special edition of Popcorn where creed you all the movies opening between Labor Day and New Year's Eve I know wait what aren't we in a pandemic Will really be moved this fall and theaters to show them in I mean the answer to both those questions is a huge. Yes. Sixty two percent of all US theaters are open now and there's going to be more to come covid permitting, of course, and those movies that can't make it to the multiplex will be available for rental or streaming in sickness and in health people, you can't keep a good movie down. So let's start with the blockbusters that are out there. Number one is tenant. Brain Teasing epoch from Dark Knight Director. Christopher. Nolan. That's geared to fire up the fall season and in theaters and with your mask and distancing in place you can strap in for this kind of Christopher Nolan throw ride and watch the spy master he's played by John David Washington give James Bond a run for his money you know you just have to. Get your head around the physics in this movie. Maybe don't know about how you can go forward and backwards in time at the same time I don't know either I was a little confused by that but you'll be glued to the visual miracles that are on screen here every cent of tenants two, hundred, million dollars production budget shows up onscreen Eisele popped. Jaw dropped pulses. Oh, pound all that good stuff movies and back baby. So what else do we have? We have Moulin which is out there right now and you'll check in Disney plus to watch this because it's not in theaters but you can rent it and you could see live action film of the Disney animated hit about a young woman who disguises. Herself as a man to replace her sick father in the Imperial Army the new moon is not musical and there's no comic relief from eating Murphy as the Voice of a fast talking dragon named Moo Shu. This is not that kind of movie. There's no whitewashing but using Western actors in the drawn from Chinese legend and as Rouland the astounding Lou ye. Leads in Asian cast that includes martial arts icon jet. Li is the emperor up and China's leading actress Gong Li as shape shifting witch who teaches on how to survive and prosper in a man's world. Look move on is not your typical princess. She's a warrior fighting for her place in the world prepare to be well. Next up wonder woman one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, the sequel to the two thousand seventeen smash that made a star of Gal. Gadot, remember her places the DC comics immortal wonder woman into the cold. War where she does battle with the media tycoon played by Pedro Pascal and the villainous Cheetah played by Kristen Wiig always to me an asset in any movie Chris. Pine also returns Steve Trevor The American. Pilot that one woman loves I know didn't he die the last time during World War? One people you gotta go with this this is Hollywood. So if we can borrow wonder woman's last sube truth for a moment, credibility isn't the issue here. It's the show stopping stunts engineered by returning director Petty Jenkins executed by Godot, and she's a formal Israeli military structure. So you know you're in for a really good time. Next up is black widow look wonder woman has competition already. You know we've been waiting since spring for Marvel to let its first solo black widow epic out of storage and into theaters. Now, the wait is over Scarlett. Johansson is back in action as Natasha Romanoff Aka black widow. She's the Russian assassin with no superpowers road just skills she's like the female Batman this Prequel looks back, Arjun story in it's a doozie forints pugh is there as Natasha, surrogate says sister and Rachel Vice is the leader of this black widow organization. It's not just one black widow you can become a black widow tells witness business. So Watch your back wonder woman next up candyman there's nothing like the Primo horror. Film to get us all back in the dark of a theater where we can scream bloody hearts out behind a mask of course, end with get outs Jordan peele writing the screenplay. This direct sequel to nineteen ninety two's cult fright fest stars Watchmen Emmy nominee Jadu Martine the second as a visual artist drawn back to those housing projects in Chicago's Cabrini-green where he was born now the whole place is gentrified beyond recognition but the green is still haunted by Candyman Tony Todd an urban legend who still kills anyone who summoned him by saying his name five times. Okay. Altogether now with me candyman candyman candyman candyman candyman, we did it. So I'm looking around here to see if some him up. Okay next up no time to die look no red blooded movie Fan is GonNa Think of missing Daniel. Craig's fifth and final outing James Bond you know for my money Craig and Sean Connery are in dead heat for the best bond ever. This one directed by Kerry from Gonzaga who did true detective from Script Co written get this by sleeping bags phoebe Wall Rich Daniel Craig asks for her because he really wants a little feminist touch to this. This is the. Twenty fifth, all seven Cape and you know this is a record and we're GONNA lose Daniel Craig. But in the movie James Bond's been retired for five years and he gets called back in. You know that's what happens to everybody from the Godfather on. You know Bohemian Rhapsody oscar-winner.

Interview with John David Washington

"John David Washington who impressed the hell Outta me for his portrayal in Black Klansman is a protagonist Christopher. Nolan's tenant. Areas on that fame direct. I think because this is in a traditional spy thriller film either I think falls in line with what he's what he does with his brand is which is innovation I think he wants the character in the audience to be one in the same in that they want what did they character? The protagonist experiencing I believe he wants to the artist to experience. You know he wants to one relationship. So you know even if it's on a subconscious level, I, think not knowing his name not necessarily knowing a lot about information about his background limits Lindsay audio lent itself to the audience experiencing exactly what he is at the same time. I'm a huge fan massive fan And I think his ability obviously storytelling ability at the core of it just is is top notch. Just knows how to tell a story and how he's He's tells it nearly He's just brakes, all kinds of traditions, and whereas filmmaking I think he has this ability to make you care and feel and be so invested in the characters while there's a world that. Maybe, it was on the SCIFI level. If it's if it's I, know this kind of science that's being introduced in the film that we not we might not necessarily know or comprehend We do feel it through the characters lenses. We do feel it through what they're experiencing. So I don't know if there's anybody that's able to do that. He can be so ambitious in. and matching different types of genres are different elements of films that we've all loved in familiar with and totally used them in create them in a new way in his way. So illness becomes a Christopher Nolan genre in a way season on John and his Co Star Once and Future Batman Robert Pat. He's a phenomenal actor incredible incredible performer. He's one of the best working today He's so dynamic. He has he has so many layers he can do so many different. Whether, it be physical whether it be accents could be just as the how you how you experience around patents in performance you come out of it just shaking sometimes in and in this is so charming and he's he's so different from you know what we've seen before it's great to see. It's great to be a part of it. As I always say you got experience the film in the right way. As the trailer goes a concept goes as well. Don't try to understand it. Feel it. And you will not be able to execute that thought that that knowledge without it being experienced in the mix in the theater properly look for ten it on the big screen and where mask for bite. This is Tony Talada.

"Hello, Paul. The Drop house with you guys every day of the week. How can we make that way We would have to talk to people. I'm not sure who, though. But Paul tell us what we should be watching this weekend because it is a holiday onions with Holly. We can We have two huge movies now obey above that have bean Impacted by the pandemics. So the first one is Janet knew Christopher Nolan movie I was supposed to come out a while ago. It's now here now in theaters exclusively and says We're going to test audiences as to whether or not they will want to go to a movie later to see how the land new movie magnitude I promise you before we get to that. Can you tell us like what sort of released this I mean, like, how many theaters are going to be carrying this movie, while others that are the theatres are open from the US run. First run movies are certain to be playing tennis. So like all of your amcc thie imagine theaters, the showplace icon. The last time they're all flying this I mean, they almost have to play it in order to get money into their theatres. Now, the smaller ones that are independent theaters are trial on the heights. They're not going to be playing this, but the bigger ones will be I would recommend doing your research figure out which ones you feel comfortable with whether it's their seating arrangement. Whether buying tickets advance What's the mask policy and my tip? If you do want to go to maybe go on off times don't try to go to the seven o'clock PM when everyone else is going, though, Ofttimes you feel like you're in a safe environment with a mask on, obviously so you are in a socially distance in that theatre and maybe ask like what their ventilation system like. Except that they do it because you wanted a safe if you want to go back, and you did actually go. I did go back. So one of others. We invited a few of us critics here in town to go see Ken. It's at at AMC Southdale and I was invited. Exactly interview John David Washington Elyse DeBakey for this movie this movie, and it felt so good to be back in theatre Now we want before the actual theater was open, so it myself and two other critics. So the three of us in their massive IMAX theatre, So I thought safe because it was just the three of us right now. So let's talk the actual movie because we only have a couple minutes left. What is the situation with with Janet? Yeah. John David Washington plays this. He's on a mission to essentially prevents this nuclear world watcher from happening And he's trying to stop this Russian oligarchs played by Dennis Brianna before he goes on, treats this ammunition in the future, so I'll promise behind Moby. Is this really on the inversion of time? So you're finding out the results of the future. And how do you know about about preventing that kind of happening? So if you have ever seen inception or interstellar with any of Christopher Nolan's movies, they are a mind trip. You're not gonna understand everything and that is for sure happening here. You have to almost go into just feel it as a movie versus trying to understand it. And if you try to understand it will be confused. He won't like what's going on. And the votes body? Where, if you just think, just figure this out later, maybe. And you're gonna have more fun with it. Interesting. So something you probably benefit from seeing more than once exactly like I'm excited to see it again. Whenever I end up singing again Now, that kind of know the outline of the movie and what happened to then try to piece together. Robert Pattinson's also when it was kind of the charming psychic because it really is just like a spy thriller..

"Has this to say, firstly tax about going to the theater and how clean it felt and faith but everyone's mass plate and social distance and it was. But he said there were hours of Warner Brother trailers, including Wonder Woman, 80, Foreign, Doon and blah, blah, blah, so that Doesn't change. No, but I love that. But he said. He said Nolan has bent over backwards to explain what's going on. It's not that difficult. This is a mission. Impossible or James Bond movie with John David Washington is the lead and the hero If you follow him, you've got the movie. I didn't I really enjoyed it. Awesome And it's about time travel, but not like Bill and Ted. More like the Avengers OK, and he says it becomes more more puzzling. It becomes more and more interesting.

"I think I think all with his an American hero during his investigation. There were no cross burnings there were no terrorist acts violent acts on in the community during that time. That's a big deal to me. That's a big deal because he wasn't trying to change the world. And it was also big deal that he had gotten great support from what officers, that's you know, that helped him in. This case wasn't just one man on a mission. You know, you know, is sending you know, movie wise, I'd have been convenient. But it wasn't and a spike held net. True to be. True in the film as well. So that that was a big deal to me. That's that's roic that he is has a job. And and I'm just glad because of the it's such a Hugh Neak case in story that I'm just so happy and proud to be a part of telling us story and a movie your character's girlfriend in the film is an activist who is opposed to the police in the United States pretty directly, and there were criticisms of the film, including from boots Riley who has been guest on this show. And is a guy I've known for a long time bay area. Right. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. Total teenage hero of mine. And who who are critical of the idea that in a story about race in America. A police officer should be a hero. How did you feel about that was that something that you've thought about before that came up after the movie came out? No and sat out to boost Riley. I saw his film. And that was that was it was crazy, and we never seen anything like that. You know that was seen anything like it. And I think it's important that we're in a great time right now in film and cinema in this business that we're getting opportunities to to tell our stories in certain parts of the world. Certain communities are getting are stories out there that they're putting money. They're funding. These ideas in these these great writers and directors out there. So that's it's it's all positive, but it's forgive me. But I I don't wanna like I don't wanna give the impression that it's like a binary between this movie, and that movie because that I know how much boots admire Spike, Lee and his work, and how much about the film, he also admired. And he he made he worked very hard to to make that clear when he was being critical. Well, I again, I I kind of luted tutor earlier I before the research before I got, and I did another film. Call Mosser's and men, and I got to do ride alongs for about a month and a half and be with a lot of police officers of color. I didn't realize what they went through. You know? So like, Laura Harrier's character. I I would probably would have been more on that side until I got the full perspective fuller more clear perspective on what they do. There's a lot of you know, men and women in the minority that that are protecting serving that don't get. Thank you that are that get nothing but criticism getting lumped into a lot of police officers that have abused their power that are incompetent. And how they you know, how they handle things. So I was very important for me. This is a man roster was a mammal great integrity. You know? He he didn't he was unapologetically black. You know, he'll tell you that. He was a man of his community. You know, I think these he says it to to the love interest to Laura's character towards the end like just because I don't wear a black beret, plaque gloves or leather jagged that I'm not for the liberation of my people. He feels like there's a way to do it from the inside. There's a way to do it in the law was on his side when confronting David Duke, you know, and you know, that you could make a movie about how he even came into being a police how he got to become a detective of police a Colorado Springs detective, I mean in the seventies. So to me, the what I listed earlier about why he's a heroes..

"It's bulls eye. Jesse thorn in the studio with John David Washington. He's the star of black klansman. He also plays the NFL player. Ricky Jarrett on HBO's ballers. Let's hear another scene from black klansman, and my guess, John David Washington, who's the star of the film. So John David's character and his partner flip who's played by driver are at the police station, and they've just come back from this is relatively early in the film, an undercover an undercover operation at a meeting at a Klan meeting and flip who is white. And is the in-person Ron is upset because his cover was almost blown by one of the Klansmen who's very suspicious of him. And that guy basically just tried to get him to take a lie detector test at gun point. And also drop his trousers to prove that he was not Jewish only very narrowly escaped the situation. Trap, the pecker wood had a gun in my face, and he was an error away from pulling the trigger and he didn't. But he could have then I would have been dead for what stopping some jerk from playing dress up flippant into. I'm not risking my life to prevent some rednecks from money a couple of six on fire. This is the job. What's your problem? That's my problem for you. It's a crusade for me. It's a job. It's not personal. No. Should it? Be. Why haven't you bought into this? Why should I if because you're Jewish brother the sole called chosen people you've been passing for a wasp white Anglo Saxon Protestant cherry pie hotdog white. Boy. It's what some light skinned black folks to they pass for white doesn't that hatred? You've been hearing the clan say doesn't that piss you off? Of course, it does. And why are you acting like you ain't got skin in the game brother rookie? That's Mike can business. Business. Your voice is so important in this film. You mean the Ed to convince the David had David Duke convinced and clans members convinced that he was a racist. White man, you're making choices both when he is on and off the phone like I feel like this would be a different story. If the premise was that he was doing, you know, the white voice direct one to one code switching. If he was doing a white people voice on the phone, and and black people voice off the phone in the in the ways that people think of them, it would be a less complex story for this character than the way that you chose to do it that was another. What was so compelling about the book, even just how he, you know, Ron Starr, we've talked about this that he he didn't change his voice at all. You know what I mean? And I love that you know, the whole. As we understand coats, which in and all that he he saw it as he had he got into character as as an undercover detective does he talked about that, you know, being like acting and getting into character he had to speak these words of hatred the vernacular of of racism in. Hey put, but he didn't change the, you know, his voice at all. So I couldn't have either I shouldn't have either. I would I would have done a disservice to to the man into the film. If I if I had it if I'd have done that. So I just wanted to keep it as authentic as possible. And and be able to to to also understand as I did reading it in doing research how complicated it is to be an African American detective police officer in this country now blue enough for the department. I black Nuffield community they know and to be able to display that us in the manically was a great opportunity for me to to. Explorer? It was it was something very curious about and wanted to to invent a lot to me to be able to to to put on display how thankless of a job it is. And how we as a community need to be especially in the African American community needs to be more specific with our contentions with with, you know, with, you know, how we feel about law enforcement, you know, because there are there are some cases out there..

"Have the same sort of reaction, especially draft picks one through ten but really all of them. They'd get this dreamed of getting their name called, you know, and they're ready to run into a brick wall. You know, they're almost programmed in that way based off of the nature of the sport. And what what you think is promised for you that rainbow which is the NFL in what I mean. And once you get there, it totally changes, the whole perspective changes. And and and unfortunately, NFL release downs for not for long, and there's not a, you know, you get a sort of a crash course in how to be a professional, but. It's not really instituted early on in these young men's life and more often than not they learned the hard way. I think there's a documentary that's called a broke. And you know, it's, you know, was the average life expectancy is three years after you know, after three years, they become, you know, bankrupt. So it it it is an interesting NFL. Specifically is such an interesting case studies for these young men in this country, and how they have to sort of turn it off, you know, after they're done playing and the learning curve, you know, is is is narrow I read this book where a reporter went behind the scenes with the jets for a year, and one of the things that I don't think I had thought about was the way that relative to other major American sports and major American professional sports. Because football happens once a week like the experience of playing it is dramatically different like baseball, and to a lesser extent basketball are defined by their grind, you know. Like, you have to show up every day and go, and you go, do you think, and you have your hurt, you know, if you're a pitcher your arm, always, you know, that kind of thing and in football because all of that week's worth of playing is distilled into one three and a half hours. He described the people basically like whole lives drove towards this unnatural high that they had to get to in order to make their bodies. Do the things that they had to do that was this physical hurting war that went on for a few hours once a week. And then they went home. Home and they got like a day off. And then it was back to building up to that again. Yeah. And they say also, especially when when young man start to get paid for the foot to do that the best ability is availability. So you talking about the grind of NBA season. Eighty two games in the in the the grind of of baseball season hockey to to a certain extent. I, you know, it's you you get another one the next day or the day after you know, Sundays, you gotta wait a whole other week. But that being said you can't. And that's why I say not for long, you know, a lot of money contracts are are are incentive based on a veil ability. If you can get a certain amount of yards if you play a certain if you participate in a certain amount of plays. I found out that you get a bonus, you know, so so being available or being able to work through injuries because there's a difference between you know, being hurt and being injured those that sort of. Gets rewarded unfortunately on the back in when it's over the hasn't been much. I mean they've worked on compensation, you know, after football. But it's still a discussion topic of discussion. Then I mean football contracts are generally not guaranteed so signing bonus s that's what you play for basically. That's the only thing guaranteed upfront money, but they can they can terminate your contract in anytime, and you split ways if you get offered one hundred million dollars for four years, but you get you know, thirty of it up front the second year, they can cut ties, and you don't get the rest of your money. It's eye. Jesse thorn, my guest this week is John David Washington. He's in the Spike Lee movie black klansman, which is out now when you additional and for ballers, you were still in a boot from the injury that ended your football career. Was it just a well? What's the worst that could happen situation?.

And if you knew anything about Jackie Robinson, you know, he had to take a lot of Gulf from his fellow teammates the fans other teams and the press. I know the Jackie Roosevelt Robinson stories are good. So no one that if somebody called you would you be able to turn the cheek. For had to, sir. Yes. Yes. I would John David Washington. Welcome to bullseyes. Nice heavy on the show me listening to that. In audio form made me think that like there's to basically two great reasons to aspire to be Spike Lee, one is one of the great filmmakers of his generation. Great teacher. You know, all those things the other is if you put Isaiah Whitlock in your movie, you can be like, hey, I say, would you mind going? Consistently to he never. I mean, he's always delivering that every. Is even funny when he believe it out. But you know, what he's saying? And you know, it just gives more context. Those funny. But in awesome charity. Welcome to the show. Thank you for coming on. You're professional football player for for a pretty long time. I mean, professional football careers tend to be short. Did you always aspire to be a professional athlete? I kind of I did it out of necessity in in a way. I I wanted to be an actor because of seeing my father and seeing my mother play the piano, I wanted to be a performer, but I started playing football though, because my dad's started getting pretty popular in Hollywood, and we started moving and moving to different places, and you know, studying in treated a little differently. So of course, I wanted to protect my feelings in I I wanted to start making my own name. So watch shows football. Now loved the game. I always love football rental Cunningham is the reason I played seeing a person that looked like me at that position. At the quarterback position. I had never seen before you know, what I mean? So I- spire to play in the NFL, but it was more of a rebellious sort of quest of independence than it was to actually live out my dream, which was which I was burying which was acting. I had Terry crews on the show a couple years ago, folks, probably know as an actor. He was also a professional football player. The Redskins, right. Was in Washington. Yeah. He played for a few. He played for a few different teams. He was he bounced around. He played in NFL Europe, his career is actually a lot a lot like yours. Yeah. And one of the things that Terry crews said to me was he kind of locked eyes with me. I mean locked in the he was locked eyes. With me the entire time. Terry crews is very Terry crews, very powerful experience to talk to that man. Uh-huh. But he kind of locked eyes with me. And he said, you know, with the exception of a few quarterbacks everyone in the NFL is broken, and like physically or or just a mental emotional emotionally. Okay. Yeah. Yes. His point being that. It's some it's such a painful brutal way to make a living. That it takes a lot to drive someone to the level of success that gets you to the NFL. And I wonder if that was reflected in your experience, and I will concur with that. I I it's watching football. Now, I I can't believe these young men put their bodies through what they indoor physically digging about the human will, you know, and and to to provide for the families to to change their circumstances. You got to credit them all of I and I'm no different. I I did I endured several concussions torn meniscus torn achilles sports. Hernia broken ribs clavicle all in the name of that independence. You know? I was willing to sacrifice it all to to know to show more to myself. But I didn't know that at the time for others though to show that I can earn my own keep I am own man. There's so many cases in. NFL that they're just trying to provide for their family trying to do better for themselves. You know, and that sort of motivation. I mean, you see it on draft day if it's the draft NFL draft weaken is is is such an an interesting social study because you see these kids these young men, I should say of all nationalities, all from all different kinds of backgrounds..

"Is that like it shows you how powerful ludicrous, and and just wild racism as a concept is because you know, you'll character in the movie. I mean, you you didn't even change your voice in the movie. You just have Ron calling the KKK and being like, let me tell you how much I hate the blacks. And they're like, we love you. It's almost like the racism blinded them to every possibility. The you know when when you were playing your character. And you're going to the story was was it hard for you to maintain that that level of being calm and happy whilst at the same time maintain that level of fear as well because Ron had both feedings at the same time. I had the honor of the character what he was going through during that time. I mean, he couldn't break. He always often talked about being on cases are detective being like an actor right cover. So he had to play the role. He said, he never changed his voice. But he just spoke the language the language, and we're seeing is really highlighted in this film. How generational it is these certain trigger words that he would use air that that would entice them and how generational that is. And you see it in the film. I'll spike tight it all together. We'll have in that the end of the film. You have a powerful seeing that we watched in that clip with Adam driver, who's phenomenal in the phone while you have a great cost of actors and two of you talking about the clan, and in this film. There's a lot of people wearing clan. Hoods? And I know that you guys are actors. But was there a moment when you're sitting on set, and you look around you and you like what am I doing here? I gotta say during the banquet scene. I had to call Ron stallworth after that day. And I thanked him. I think for the bottom, my heart. How her role was during the investigation there were no cross burnings? There were a terrorist act or violence on on the community. I think that's mission accomplished that's right road. But I told them like I I really appreciate what you did. Because he was looking death in is like they could've killed him buried him. He had the law inside a black, man. A black detective in Colorado Springs, seventy the law and his side face to face with David Duke. Right. Those were very hard very hard seeing those are very difficult days. But because of our commander because of Spike Lee, we felt so comfortable and free to explore that because we know what we're doing is a part of the storytelling that's going to be trolled, truthfully. Right because spike Lee's, a master cinematic tone when when you look at how the story ties into what America's going through today. You can't you can't ignore it. Because the film ends in a really powerful, I won't tell you the story. Ends. But the end of the film has the news clippings from Charlottesville, and you see that horrible scene Platt again. And I remember sitting in the cinema with people, and nobody moved everyone was shaken by its if someone hasn't watched the movie of even people have what would what message would you hope they take away from this film that the I think the answer to peace with the hope the hope lies and inclusion everybody here that's looked like we all are different. We all come from different spaces and backgrounds, but it's going to take us to come together. And I think the film lends itself to that kind of hope because the mission was accomplished because of this not just this black detectable white officers that helped him in the system into this mission. So it's gonna take inclusion it's amazing, man. Good. Good. I'm hoping to see after that clansman is in selected animated be the end digital John. David washington.

Welcome to the show and congratulations on your Golden Globe nomination. That was. Amazing. I've I've experienced the sun perspective in father being nominated. But to get invited to the table. It was a dream. Come true. Really was. Right. You you you you have been someone who's been thrust into the limelight. A lot of people. I saw you on Boras know, but you be spotted acting career at a young age. I see here that you were you were in Malcolm X when you were what nine years old. I was six and I was more of a background artistes. Oh nice. Nice. But I had a line. I'm command as the first kid jumps up and says the line, and it was amazing. I always wanted to be an active though, my favorite movie growing up was glory. And I knew every line of every character. All I want for Christmas was a new VHS tape. 'cause I broke it. 'cause I watched it so many times, right? And then the blue suits that the soldiers wanted and I got for Christmas and off to the races. After you have an interesting story because he wanted to get into acting, and then you'll love became spoke. What what changed? Why did you why did you leave the acting game? And you did well in sport as well. And then what acting? I did did well saying how I was getting treated as my father started becoming more popular has essentially in the business. I was getting the family stuff. We started getting treated differently, Denzel Washington. Yeah. Yeah. That guy so. So as I saw us getting treated differently. We went from going to sizzlers to go. So as I started getting treated differently. I wanted to protect my feelings protect myself, right and football as independent car. I had this rebellious quest of making my own name being making it on my own and felt like I can hide in the helmet. You know and just getting myself. It's interesting that you you combine your skills. You know in Bolas, you're playing an athlete, and you are an act at the same time. And now we've seen that evolution comes to the next level in in black klansman. I mean, it was a phenomenal performance. Everyone. Who's watched the movie truly loved it? It was a powerful film as well. What was interesting was Houston addition for this role spiking just called you and didn't ask you. He basically told you you're doing the move. That's kinda right? Yeah. I done a film called monster of for his wife, who's a producer on it. And he was familiar with some work. I did on ball this. But yeah, I got a text from him saying this spite calling like those were the words, and I never talked to him on the cell phone before I had to investigate 'cause I was looking. You know, say I had to so call them got scrip. There's a book and wanna send you read the book, I called him back and said, this is amazing. He said bet I'll see this summer, and we just started going from there. And it's a really powerful story for those who haven't seen it. It's the story of a policeman who you play and your character, Ron were Ron style. With is is a black police officer in the white police department in a town where the Klan is really has a big presence. And he works to infiltrate the timeless is based on a true story. Yes. Yes. In Colorado Springs in the seventies around stallworth was the first African American detective in Colorado, spring rights, and he had he had he had read an ad in the paper. They were recruiting the Ku Klux Klan recruiting the local paper, and you call them up in and said how much he hated black people in all and other minorities, and they're like great.

"It was a really fascinating discussion I stumbled upon online. And it was about the new Bryan, Cranston and Kevin Hart movie. Scene. It's beautiful story that is being adapted from a French movie originally called the untouchables, and it's a story of. I guess in the movie, it's a an African man who lives in FRANZ, French guy, and he gets employed by this rich paraplegic man to come in like Luke off to him. And it's like, you know, pairing, and they they get to know each other. And it's a beautiful story. And I saw Kevin Hodson Bryan Cranston remaking the movie, and it looks like it's going to be good. And what's interesting is. There was like a big, you know, outrage online that started up yesterday where people complaining saying why is Bryan Cranston playing a disabled person? Why didn't they get a disabled persons to play disable push? And I'm online my first instinct 'cause I love Bryan, Cranston. My first incident. Oh, you being seriously come on, man? We're going to now. Actors actors are going to act like the whole point of everyone. Who is the thing the thing that on acting then it's just the thing documentary like that's the whole point of acting. You come home, of course, gonna play the push. And then you don't have online. Everyone swears that each other. Nobody speaks anymore. No one has a conversation. That's nuance. But there was one one actor who is in a wheelchair, and I didn't know of him. I know he is just just wrote a ready cogent beautiful response. Online didn't fight with anybody. Didn't call anybody. Anything didn't judge anybody? And he completely opened my perspective. I never thought of he said I understand what an actor is an actor. He's but I'm an actor in a wheelchair and. I never see parts that are leading roles for person in a wheelchair. And so the one time I see a role where there's a person in a wheelchair. I think this could be it could be the moment where I I have all of the tools necessary to play this part. Do I get a shot at playing? It's. And and he was like because when you think of it on the flip side, they never call people with wheelchairs in to play able bodied people, and they'll get able body to people to play people in wheelchairs. And I was like I just I never thought of it like that. My perspective, obviously has someone who is not in Wiltshire. I I never thought of it that way, and I sat down I was like, it's it's it's powerful. Because you don't think about representations. You don't think about how important this where people to see themselves on screen like like in a real way? And at the same time. I don't think Bryan Cranston did anything wrong. I don't think everything has to be a fight. It's just a moment to be like, hey, maybe next time in Hollywood people can look at that. And go maybe you can get a relatively unknown actor to play that role. And then put them the opposite. They're maybe becomes their breakout. Maybe this becomes the thing that blows them up. And that's where you realize how powerful representation is because if your personal wheelchair, and how many movies come along with the lead character is in a wheelchair virtually none. And I honestly I even myself. I was like oh, man. I have to try and understand that a little bit more. Was it was I opening and I did understand it when he said like that a bit because I remember when they announced the lion. King was going to be made America like the line is going to be made looking and I was like my phone's gonna ring right? I was like because I mean..
