"Dean Richardson knew Lucy and Desi movie coming out. It will be called beyond the Ricardos. And it is going to be made sometime later on this year. We don't have an exact date. We don't know on which streaming platform this will be appearing nor a release date. But the two people that are in talks to play Lucy and Desi Our Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem, Huh? Which seemed e guess in one way. It sort of makes sense. She's redhead. He is Latino. But on the other hand, this movie is as I'm told, follows Lucy and Desi while they were starring on the show. I Love Lucy. And Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem are quite a bit older. Then they are ness is were when they were on the show. Uh, you know if it was their life after I love Lucy, if it was, you know their life after they both got remarried, and it would make more sense. But You know, to have them to have Nicole Kidman and have your bread dumpling 30 year olds doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to me. Yeah, I don't know. But I mean Hollywood makeup and what they can do. And I said, Look young. They're not old by any means. But I see what you're saying. They're certainly not their late twenties. Yeah, well, if you if you look at you know the I love Lucy episodes and I try to almost every day Uh, they they're considerably younger looking them. Nothing. I mean, nothing against them. Kidman, You know they're both younger than I am. But the you're gonna have hair extensions to make the difference. Yeah. There you go. I'm gonna look like share and a couple of days, apparently, but, yeah, I just think the age wise they could have found somebody else. To do this, and and I also want to point out in the cold. Kidman played Samantha Stephens when they remade Bewitched a few years ago, Maybe one of the worst movies that has ever been made. So there you go. I'm predicting I'm predicting disaster. I'm sure that with with a name like that, I just want a critic and predictions. Ass dirty movie hasn't even been major really reminded Miss Marjorie Bird would be so proud of me right now. I'm gonna get some hate mail D get in line. There you go. Jersey boys, Okay. When I saw it live here in Chicago, I left singing those tunas those songs all week long. I loved it. They already had a movie for this, right, though they're gonna Eastwood directed it. Yeah, I got another one. Well, what they're gonna do is they're gonna make they are going to make another movie of it. But it's going to be instead of taking the stage play and turn it into You know, sort of a dramatization. This one is going to be a movie of the stage play. Okay, much like much like they did with Hamels. Okay. Okay. You know where they where they took the actual stage play, and they filmed it. And then they were going to release it into theaters and said it went on Disney Plus That's what's gonna be happening with Jersey Boys. But what's really interesting here is They have signed one of the Jonas Brothers to be Frankie Valli in this new version of the Jersey Boys, So you know, I think the Jonas is gonna be great. He looks a little bit like a young Frankie Valli. He's got Broadway experience. He was in how to succeed in business without really trying and a number of other Broadway productions. He's a very good actor. I think that's AH, good choice and You're right. You can't beat that music that Frankie Valli and the four Seasons music. I love it in that production. I hope he has the falsetto for it. I'm assuming he does You know what? I don't know if if he does. And if if he doesn't That should have been part of the audition process. I think I mean, the whole thing's a talented singer, so so maybe can hit those high notes. But if not, that's gonna be an incredible strain on your vocal course. I know what is when I tried something like that. Exactly. But again, the extensions that will help you heat the higher notes. Gonna be my new show with my new show with the baton. Oh, God. I will join you in the baton. Any time you want the Richard haven't been to their new locations haven't either. Well, teen, it's a date. You and I were going. Alright. Right. Kevin Hart Signing us big deal with Netflix. Yeah, This is a great great deal for him. This is like Adam Sandler like deal of four picture deal. Which studio is very rarely do, especially in this bizarre economy that we're in right now. But that's how much face faith that Netflix has in Kevin Hart of four picture deal hey, has already put out several or several comedy specials. With them, and these are gonna be You know more. You know the kind of comedies that you see Kevin Hart in with the rock, and you know some of some of the others, So it's It's a huge major deal for Kevin. Who is It's so interesting to me because I remember so clearly. Kevin coming into Chicago. He would come on the morning show. He'd make the rounds of all the shows, you know, because he was appearing at zanies, or, you know, one stand up club or another. Come in all bleary eyed to promote his shows. And now he's one of the biggest stars in the world. And deservedly so. He he is the Energizer Bunny. You know, both comedically, but he never stops working. He never stops. You know, putting your shoulder to the stone. He deserves it. And it seems to all the post Oscar host. Not host. Snafu doesn't seem to affect him too much right? Certainly. Let's talk about Deon Taylor on his obsession. With both. So this is very this is very interesting. You know. Deon Taylor is a director. He grew up in Gary, Indiana. So you know he grew up in the Chicago area for sure. It's got this new movie out called for towel that stars Hilary Swank and Michael Ealy, which is, you know, a mystery thriller. You know, very, very serious kind of a new are, you know, sort of film, but I did a zoom chat with him. I've talked with Deon Taylor Several times. Super nice guy. But when we got on the zoom, called His Chicago stripes were showing big time. Take a Listen. Hello, everybody. Hi,.

"The last half hour we shared our conversation with two time Oscar winner Hilary Swank. And the director of her new movie, Chicago's very own Deon Taylor. Very interesting conversation. Not only about this nor thriller that they do, but I think also very, very interesting. About theaters opening up in the future of whether or not we'll be going back to theaters. What they both had to say was, I thought very, very interesting. We'll post that up on the Web, so you could watch that later. Hillary in this movie stars with Michael Ealy. Been in a whole variety of films, comedies, dramas, just everything. I mean, this is an actor who could do a lot in this movie he plays. Sports agent goes to Vegas with four bachelor party has a one night stand, returns back to his home and wife on whom he's just cheated. And that night. There is a home invasion and the detective who was investigating the home invasion is the woman from the one night stand. And she ain't going away. She's just is not going away. It's very fatal attraction like I don't think it's quite as solid Azaz fatal attraction, but it's still a good movie. I still enjoyed it, and I certainly enjoyed their performances in this movie. And we talked with Hillary and Dion on the zoom. Likewise with Michael, he'll think I'm gonna start calling you Chameleon man because you put Michael Ealy into any kind of genre any kind of role you knock it out of the park E mean, is that your intention when you choose your roles? That might have been the highest compliment I've ever received. Ever genuinely appreciate that. Thank you. Because You know you try. That is kind of the That's the goal, right? Like, you know, you know the actors that I respect growing up and that I still respect to this day are the ones that You might not necessarily be movie stars, but are able to kind of just blend in and just do anything you know, like a Philip Seymour Hoffman or don Sheetal type of actor like those guys, I just I just love them so much. And so that chameleon comment like that is that is Thank you. Thank you. Yeah, that that Z by design. You know what? I'm gonna throw a couple of other names into that mix like a Tom Hanks. I just watched him to a western, which I never saw before a Jimmy Stewart who did comedies and dramas and everything but he CEO I'm And you are you are you are the You Know the guy here, my friend. That's appreciate that. I mean, you know You know, I'm just trying. Tomo. Obviously you want to bring your a game And then when you work with Hilary Swank, you want to try and bring your double a game. Uh, and, you know, I think she's uh, She's phenomenal. She's so intense and she's so like Dialed in that you know you You have no choice but to show up on Bring it. What does that mean to you? When you you know when you go into any movie, really, and you're acting partners in the movie If you're working against the two Time Academy Award winner does that Does that mean something different to you? I think the key is to not be intimidated by it, right. You know, I think accolades can sometimes separate us. And you know, at the end of the day if we're both on a stage and we're both on a set We birth. We both earned the right to be there, and we should act accordingly. Now, none of this was a problem with Hillary. Hillary doesn't act like she's above anything. She's very much a giving actor and very dialed in and very human and normal and it was fantastic to work with her. On Again If I'm not intimidated by you, then I know I'm in a zoo long as I'm giving the space and I could breathe and play. Then, hopefully we we jam well together, and it just becomes like like jazz and a lot of ways, And it just becomes much more fun. Much more fun than anything else..

"Sharon are a list interviews with the stars. And this morning we've got some of the stars and also the director of the new movie Hotel. This is kind of a new war thriller that stars two time Oscar winner Hilary Swank and one of the one of the best young male actors Michael Ealy. As the two co stars of this film. They are two people who go to Vegas for different reasons. They wind up at a bar wind up having a one night stand. Then go home to their respective families. He returning home to his family goes back to his wife on whom he's just cheated. And that night some breaks into their house. The police investigator who comes to you know, investigate this break in is the woman that he had the affair with. From the one night stand. And she won't go away it Zaveri Fatal Attraction E kind of movie. I don't think quite as intense as fatal attraction, but still pretty good. Um so Why have interviews with Hillary and with Michael? But also we talked with director Deon Taylor Dion Not really won't play a lot of directors on this show, but Deon Taylor is from the Chicago area grew up in northwest Indiana. The reason that I mentioned all of this is because he is a child of both. So as we like to call him, he grew up watching WGN TV. Watching all the Children shows that we had on the air and So when we hooked up with them on a zoom call, that would explain why he reacted like this. You've got all the time in the world you need, man. Ladies, man Words never spoken in a junket before every time I see you, man, I just want to tell you I love you, Brother. You are legendary. And just thank you for being everything that you are, man. Seriously? Oh, yes, sir. Wow. That thank you. Yes, sir. Those air. Those are nice words. You know, That's the only part of this interview. I'm gonna put on the air now. Right after all, Hillary, How are you? I did him good things. Nice to see you. It's great to see both of you. See on Let me start off with you. This nail biter film that has so many twists and turns. I got to think that that is from you. Growing up in Chicago and watching the bozo show Am I correct on up? That's exactly right. Man. Cookie was always my inspiration. Cookies is the Michael Ealy character Is that right?.

"So the idea of you know if you're gonna have a salad with dinner, you know, my mom always said, eat everything together, you know, enjoy all the flavors, but really, it's it's probably a better idea. We eat your salad first, and then maybe take a little break. Yes, there is research too sick to support that, And there's also research to support Ah, cup of broth or broth based soup also helps fill you up. We've said this for decades. What's up until a few years ago, there was no research to support it. There is research to support that. Okay, so probably. I mean, if you're gonna have AH, little soup like a soup and salad before you get to your main entree. Probably not good. If it's a cream based soup, something like that, But like a little, you know the old fashioned restaurant, you sit down, you might have a cup of consummate or a little cup of of vegetable soup. Okay? All right, and then and take a little break before you have your entree. You'll probably eat Less of the entree or or that smaller portion then will seem satisfying to you. That's right. That's right. And, you know, a reminder that no meal is going to be the last supper. You know, there's gonna hopefully there's gonna be another meal. So don't worry about if you would have asked me that in the middle of 2020. I must just great. Yeah. That's certainly certainly by the autumn of 2020. I would have said you're nuts. Well, thank God that's behind you. Yes, That's right. There's nothing you can do about the past. So all you can work on is what's gonna happen today and tomorrow, right, right. Um Why he just had a fantastic question for you, and it's completely eluded me. I hate without him. I'm sure it's going to come back to me any time Now. It's some some new guidelines. You told me had just come out the 2020 dietary guidelines. Is that that plate that you're talking about or is that something else? The point if they're related, they're both issued by the United States. Department of Agriculture. So the My plate came out when President Obama emotion. Actually, Michelle Obama was the one who unveiled them. Um Oh, gosh, almost almost 10 years ago. Now, um there's the graphic of what the you know they demonstrate what they're supposed to sew. The dietary guidelines came out on Tuesday and they've been You know, we've been waiting for them forever. They come out every five years and they are based on science. There weren't a lot of changes, but what they did change had to do with Children and pregnant women. So some of the some of your listeners may be parents or future parents from maybe grand parents, and they're so one of the highlights about that has to do with Babies like Children under the age of two. They should avoid consuming any added sugars, which are found in many cereals and beverages. Um, one of the things that surprise people that based on Emerging research about alcohol consumption up until now, men, uh, could in good graces have two alcoholic beverages a day and women women one, and they really thought that they were going to cut back on the apathy. Um, they kept that they kept at the same, so that's actually quite country, Controversial. It appears based on what I have read that drinking alcohol in limited amounts in moderation. You know, one alcohol equivalent is safe, five ounces of wine or a beer or a A jigger of spirits. It's not a healthy for you as we once thought. But that's a whole nother topic. The same go for, you know, a nice piece of chocolate cake or some like that, that Occasionally it's OK or, you know, stay away from it well I would never say to anyone to stay away from chocolate cake or any other cakes. But what the dietary guidelines does address is added sugars. So there is, you know, it's basically Consume, and it's feeding consume sugars that are naturally present in things like milk or fruits. Some vegetables, but, you know, have small portions of added sugars. If you're gonna have any at all people want to get more info. Christine, What's the best way to follow up with you? I have a website and it is Christine Columbo dot com. Have a block on that website. And if you're looking for chips on Eating healthy well at home.
