Dante Basco Discussed Landing the Role of Rufio

"You work asked. How did how did that come about like you had started out as a dancer one of your first credits is in moon-walker. Yeah yeah me. And my little brother Dion. We're in Walker. I was actually his understudy in moon-walker and we did the bad video but we did the kid. Bad video friends would allow those kids today. I mean mercer tantrums in the video. She's like the executive producer showrunner of of fails to share. We've known each other since we were like twelve. The way dancing works. You have the casting you have to have a cast like exact behind them because people get hurt all the time when you dance so we did that. We Young. We're gases when he came to L. A. But when I did hook the pretty remarkable thing about hook is so my little brother. Dion hadn't auditioned for another character in the movie. And I remember calling my managers when he got the addition. Because we're like you gotta give me an audition for this movie because you know the one thing we knew is it's Robin Williams playing grownup Peter Pan. And you're like that had captured the imagination of the world like. Oh my God like Robin Williams is Peter Pan. That's who he is. And so we were all excited about the movie and Spielberg and and whatnot. And so I ended up getting audition for other character. Rubio we know in these characters are and then my other brother. Dr Ian got an audition for Rubio too so we both went in together. This the thing about being brothers L. A. And Act against all audition and continue against each other and to this day and it's like was the TV show like last season where they're like. Oh it's between you and your brother during both on the board like whatever like was going to get it so good like but we've all trained together and go of the process understand that you're not really in competition with each other you know but we've been through a lot as brothers and different these days almost be really close. Yeah I mean it's hard to be Asian actor in. It's hard to be an actress. La I always say it's hard to be an actor in La. Probably want hard jobs in the world as far as to work and then on top of that it's hard to be an ethnic actually and within the ethnic spectrum it's hard to be Asian ethnic spectrum and even within the Asian spectrum to be Filipino. That particular Asian is super strange. The people because they're like are you. What kind of Asian Asians that? We wrote this role for you like a brown skin kind of are you. So why are you so ten and then even within that little like Filipino? It's like it's you know I'm one of four brothers that are like very close in age like you're the boss brothers like at our performance that our performance that we're all here in the audition so it. I've lived a very unique experience except where I've brothers that lived with me. Oh we are definitely going to ask you about one of the few experiences. You had playing a specific Filipino. American character in the great debut debut But I I want to ask you lower living in this hook. Moment your audition you said before that in a way your upbringing in paramount helped you in. Yeah House. The unique thing about that particular project is I went in on me and my brother both went in. We put the auditions on tape with the with the Catcher in Jefferson. There's a picture of that day too. We both dressed up like how he thought loss was addressed up. I remember like bracelets on this. Weird like floral shirt and so We had the addition and then I got a call back like the eight my managing like. Oh so Steven Spielberg wants to meet you. So I went to Amblin which is on the universal lot in the whole lot. All great but there's like this one sections like Spanish villas like that stevensville offices. We went there and this is like before. Ps Ten does like here. Like a mall arcade in his office which is crazy and so we're they're playing video games and he brings me in and then he doesn't even me again we talk. We talk about a lot of stuff you talk about rats so Rizzo and talked about Dustin Hoffman. Because I know his playing hook at that time and we talked about films we talk about other things I did and then do you want me to read. He's like no no. You're good I just wanted to meet you and I was like what I walked out. My mom had to go. I don't think I got it like I read. You know and then a few days later they offer me the part which wild so read the part one time. When I was on the set I remember sitting on the pirate ship and I was like. Hey Steven like never auditioned like read the roll one time and someone offered me the job. How did that happen and Steven was like Yeah Dante. Like at of all the kids we. You're the only kid that scared me. And but you know when I think about it now inside. I'm living in paramount right. And this is ninety one. You know kids were getting shot in my school. Like my best friend. Like one of our friends got killed his girlfriend. There was like guns everywhere drugs. We you know there's like life and death situations going on every day. There was like a big race war blacks breast of Mexicans. Where where what side are you on? Oh we need to get out of here at lunch or like you know it's going down and when you're dealing with like that kind of environment to degree the lost boys gang. I just the leader of the gang and so I think some of that was you know brought to the surface when doing the character and I think that kind of resonated with Stephen. I think that Kinda helped my the whole thing so

"I finally got to you guys. I listen to you, no matter what issue, your honor. That's awesome. Like time worry. Well, we're happy to be on this station. Now, that's for sure. We're gonna be talking about Dustin Hoffman. Born August 8th, 1937. He has a birthday coming this month, so we'll see how you could do and we'll see how Carl does and we'll go from there. All right, Tom, the first question is for you. Dustin Hoffman was in the Guinness Book of World Records for his 1970 film, Little Big Man for the Greatest Abe Span portrayed by a movie actor. Is that true or false? What's a false? What do you think, Carl? I agree with Tom. It's false. Generally, you should agree with the listener, but this time not so much. So he Jack Crabb in that film, and he was 8 17 to age 121. We both got it wrong. Sorry. I'm sorry for Tom. I'm not sorry for you. Okay. Carl During the filming of Finding Neverland in 2004 he lost the tip. Of a toe and had to perform an entire day of shooting on morphine. I think that's true. What do you think, Tom? Is he right? Following your logic, I would say he's wrong. Thank you. That is the first time following my logic. My logic is Carla. Generally wrong. Absolutely right is right rules. It was actually a finger. He lost the tip of his during the filming of that movie. Yeah. Good job. All right now I'm feeling good. Time Dustin Hoffman Finger was running around saying that gold finger I'm sure that's what he was probably a time. Dustin Hoffman won the Academy Award for best actor for Kramer vs Kramer in 1980 rain Man In 1989. Is that true or false? I'm going to say true. I think it's true. It's true thing. We've got that. All right now we're on a roll here, Carl. Yes. Dustin Hoffman received a lifetime achievement award from the American Film Institute in 1999. She's tricky. Tom. I'm sure you know if you listen to the show, you know, tricky, Lee says. I think she's got the date wrong. It's probably different date, so I'm going to say false. Okay, Tom again following her logic, I'm going to say it's true. You are have freeride time. This's love with Isaac. You're a good listener. I'll give you that. The best way to be Carl's to disagree with him. I do it. All the time. Um, doesn't often didn't always dream of becoming a Hollywood actor. He enrolled at Santa Monica College and began studying medicine. Is that true or false? I believe that's true. I disagree. False. It's true. You know, Tom, when I When I was in college, I actually studied medicine to I started to be a doctor. Did you know that? You know, that's just like it didn't work out for me because I didn't have enough patients. He knows you well enough to know something was coming. Carol, this is our final question. Let's see if you can redeem yourself. Probably not. Dustin Hoffman had to drop out of the 1967 film the Producers. To star in the Graduate. Yeah, a degree I'ma say true. I see a true you say true? Yeah. What do you think, Tom? We think sure falls. Unfortunately, I'm gonna agree with you through the tough I tell you. What, and just a little trivia. The graduate is ranked the by the American Film Institute as the 17th greatest American film of all time. I tell Carl the time you need to see I never saw the movie. You've seen it, right, Tom. Really? Oh, yeah. Wow, that's really something missing out years, Always jealous..

"Daddy okay. Hook the nineteen ninety-one cult favorite reimagining of a Peter. Pan Lor starring Robin Williams. And Don Bosco you are. I'm just GONNA cut right to an icon. Come on come on man and you have been ever since this this role Rubio and we have so many questions for you. But we're going to start is what has revealed meant to you over. The course of the time. I mean is changed over the years. I did Rouphael when I was fifteen. Start when I was ten before was an actor. I was I'm from me and my brothers from the bay area right. And we're all artists and actors and musicians and poets and we start as break group in the Bay. Area called Street freaks. We popular was in the bay area. Kid You know grew up going to forty niners games in Oakland as games and we ended up dancing for the forty niners and the Oakland A.'s. Halftime shows thirty. Four thousand six hundred that kind of stuff then. We got scholarships the Ballet Company ballet and so we start studying ballet and it was like a real billion Elliott thing kids from St that they picked up and start the world ours and so like being an actor. Artists has been in my family's story since my earliest memories of whatever we were doing you know and so by the time I was fifteen and did hook it was like I mean I was you know somewhat prepared for it because I was studying acting for so long and studying the greats and then I was very much whereas work with greats worked with Spielberg maybe at the height of his powers. Dustin Hoffman is. He's on the Mount Rushmore of the actors. That changed the face of acting the seventy S and whatnot. You Got Robin. Williams is the Godfather improv acting. In one of the great you know give me. The list goes on Maggie. Smith said Bob. Hoskins is like every day is like what's going on here and so I was really prepared to just really do a great job but that never prepares you for character lasting twenty five years later. It's like now I've been Rubio longer than I haven't been Rubio. You know so you know you walk around. And now it's like it means something different to a whole generation as people tattoos of your fifteen year old face on their body crazy. Which you've seen with your I've seen with my own eyes. I've signed people's bodies at kamikaze tattooed on you know. And they name their kids after Rubio and their dogs after Rubio and it means something to just the people at large as far as like this rebel spirit you know and then in mean something completely different to a whole generation of Asian Americans where I get a lot of like. You're the first cool Asian that I ever saw on television as exactly what I was about to say. It's you and I'm dismayed that you hear so often not here and again when you're young you don't really think about it when you big movie in your teenager like even though I was like a trained actor and a pretty solid artists at fifteen is like I just WanNa be cool like plea at the for. The love of God can come out on Friday in theaters and when I go to school on Monday. Ken like some people. Think I'm cool. Where are you going to school at that point in in southern California I was going to school in Southern California? I was in high school Limit town called paramount. And it's right. You know right next to Compton. The crazy thing was this is the nineties s in we got into some trouble me and my brothers in the middle of shooting Hook. We got caught shoplifting. At Serena's mall yes. I needed some isotoner gloves. We needed some isotoner. Glove would use gloves and southern California. I don't know Jerry Rice War on I duNno had some is anyway. We got caught. My parents got so and again when you grown up in the neighborhood and paramount which is like site content but it's more Mexican than black and it's you know gang violence in the nineties and we have friends run drugs. Everything's a lot going on in your young mind like shoplifting is nowhere near anything else going on a neighbor but we got popped. We got in trouble and I was actually in the middle of shooting. Hook which is super strange and the guy that Catis history does mall was like watching. Because he'd seen me in a movie called perfect weapon he's like that's that do from perfect weapon and then. Oh my God. He's they're stealing isotoner gloves So we ended up getting bused to Orange County and started and finished our school at Orange County. The and then I was there when the hook came out. So it's kind like I was a kid in school and the movie came out and I went from a school. I was like predominantly black and Latino to a school in Orange County. That was I think there was twelve black kids in school And like it was like predominantly white. We were like. What are we doing here so that was a school that was that you were in? Hook was coming. Yeah that was I was in when he came out and I was. They thought it was cool. I mean we were cool are here with me and my brother like three. Brown brothers walking around campus with high hair and Super Hip hop kids and then the big movie comes out. And you're like that kid from that movie. I kinda always wished I was in my old school when it came out. Because know you get the extra On the hometown new school. And it's all weird already now. Super

The Frame 5th Anniversary Special

"We launched the frame. We were doing something for the the very first time I had been a print reporter my entire life so we ask our guests for stories when they first succeeded or failed old. We have a thirty second request though in two weeks. Everybody who comes on is saying the first thing that something happened. I M Gena Davis and the first time fine I got cast in a movie was in tootsie. Few the first job did I failed and actually got fired on American gangster. I'm John Stewart the first time. I've bobbed onstage. funnily enough was the first time I was on stage. For some reason I was absolutely not nervous at all. The first scene was with Dustin Hoffman in my underwear but what I learned from that was Is Not all about me and you have to learn how to advocate sometimes as a filmmaker The Bitter End New York City. One o'clock in the morning following three doors cover bands. I had a good five minutes prepared about two minutes into the audience realized I might suck at this. The funniest thing was I didn't know you're only supposed to come on the days that you're working and nobody bothered to to tell me for six weeks. I showed up at six and went home when everybody else did. I'd get a chair and put it right next to Sydney Pollack considerable bad day avenue. I still feel that page on the is I walked into the night I thought to myself you know. There are a lot of law schools if I could I could go to them. And our first guest in two thousand fourteen was Christopher Nolan He. He was about to release his movie. Interstellar a lot of people are saying that this is your most personal film. How do you respond to that? You take a compliment. You think they might be right. I basic they don't know me so I I do you know yourself. I don't know Myself Derby when either you've been a lot of real world events that have driven our coverage over the years but the one that coincided with our launch was a Sony Hack today today the. US government pointed the finger of blame directly at North Korea with a devastating cyber attack against Sony. Pictures taken down the movie. The interview. That poked fun on at the North Korean dictator whole. They caused a Lotta damage. The cyber attack of Sony pictures which allegedly was conducted by North Korea came in response to a movie. It was called the interview. It Starts Seth Rogan and James Franco. It was a crazy story. It evolved every day and in the middle of it Dan Sterling in who was the screenwriter of the interview was with us in studio. Hi thanks for having me. It's very rare that a screenwriter is like with us to talk about breaking news news so I guess my breaking news questions. What the Hell's going on today? Well I just know what's going on in my email inbox which is an increasing flood of people asking me if if I'm okay both emotionally physically and financially was your answer. What do you tell you know? I was at a party on Saturday night where the host was introducing me to everybody the at the Party as this is the guy that brought down Sony exit was funny. Well the first four or five hundred times. The joke was made. It was funny except Except actually it's a way it's actually not funny to me I'm It's been a surreal experience. I'm still very much in the middle of the one thing that I know that I'm not happy about is actually The real suffering that is going on at Sony. Not Not just by the person who green lit my films so bravely but also by all the other people affected by the hack. I'm quite concerned about them there. There's so much about this story. We'll get to the film in it in a second. But what about about the reaction to the film itself has been the most surprising to you. Well look About a year ago today I was I was on a sound stage age and I was at the monitor watching Seth Rogan who was completely naked except for a sock around his penis and he had a bunch of Salami Alami tucked between his buttocks that a German shepherd was eating out of because the scene was he was being Sniffed by you know a bomb sniffing dog and I was laughing my head off sitting next to his mother who seemed to be used to these sorts of things and she was knitting a scarf and at the time Nothing like any. This could have occurred to me because the movie is just a in our minds was supposed to be an outrageous of course somewhat provocative but totally hilarious comedy which I think that it is but the the the reaction by the North Korean government was surprising to me And all of the things that have ensued have been. Ah I was quite naive going into

Blame GM strike on UAW corruption

"Let's begin this morning with the GM strike General Motors had United automobile workers continue to have discussions says the nationwide strike enters a second day because she Asians reportedly were tense yesterday as the two sides are at odds over wages and health care let's bring in deal bus for Michigan this morning for an update on not only the strike what's going on behind the scenes the. good morning welcome back to WGN. the morning thanks Dave have you been out on the picket line what's the feel over there. he knew well enough but on the picket lines unfortunately it's not. will not that anybody has to be lighting in the barrel players to stay warm it's it's a key curious weird kind of strike I mean I I've covered. often on the use of three way W. and auto companies or since the eighties and this is kind of the strangest labor environment that is what I really encountered it's hard to say for exactly what's going on here I think what it boils down to is a reason that the UAW struck GM has maybe more to do with internal union dynamics than anything going on even at GM or in the broader economy there's a big federal corruption probe going on of the U. A. W. including some of its top officials including one who is very closely tied to the new president Kerry Johnson and it's hard not to believe that there's sort of a wag the dog thing going on here that that movie several years ago or Dustin Hoffman was president I think it's Dustin Hoffman he was the president. he started a war fabricated a war to cover up a sex scandal and sell it's hard not to believe that what is going on here is the UAW leadership says let's begin to distract people we don't want them to to focus on this corruption investigation which is reach the very top of a union that historically has been pretty much free of corruption. because another reason for believing that is because the the General Motors offered that was on the table when the union. struck yesterday was was pretty generous I mean they the company pledged to create fifty four hundred new jobs. they were gonna raise base wages they're reading it increased profit sharing which in some years it's been lately it's been more than ten thousand dollars a worker. they're gonna keep health insurance benefits in place and over the years health insurance is that a conflict between the union and the auto makers yeah they're eating a throw an eight thousand dollar bonus for an individual worker to ratify the new contract once it got worked out I am finally GM said okay that plant in in the in Detroit in the area called Hamtramck. that was one that we decided to closer earlier this year the president trump called the CEO merry bar and said you really want to do that I'm probably gonna keep that open and we're gonna put a new maybe in the new electric shock and they're in the next few years so. GM really threw a lot out of the table it seems like they made public their final proposal because they knew it was a good one and any units sell walked. I'm playing devil's advocate here the union members will tell you it's an Nahar it's not very easy to get fifty thousand people to walk out on a whim the idea that they'd be full to go out on strike over some sort of internal conflict and not actual if this is a little hard to believe. well yeah I I mean. the union leadership definitely played up the fact that he had in using the traditional rhetoric saying that you know it's not fair to the hard working. members of the U. A. W. and all that but they couldn't really tried out. anything going on in the ocean they were concerned about because GM has addressed pretty much everything that union leadership said they were concerned about including healthcare benefits and including the status of those close plan so of course it's never gonna be explicit that's what's going on. but the UAW rank and file you know will follow their leadership and. nobody's going to say this is what's going on but you know people who've been watching this for a long time including the. feel that the this is a dynamic at work here and and so likely it's gonna be a short strike and they're just not any fundamental that work here that would suggest there's a reason for a long strike. it is just a few weeks y'all could end up well in terms of the way W. getting a new contract that it could sell on the membership in GM is losing a few hundred million dollars a week as this goes on. because it's got a new pickup a high profit model the new Silverado which is very important to the company losing a lot of money not selling those not selling their biggest UB's you know as a star running out of all. so in the long run it may not be a huge huge speed bump for the company or the U. A. W. but we'll see things have gone off the tracks before yeah one of the issues I saw it being talked about yesterday there were some interviews of people on the line talking about this the the temporary workers situation one going on the line making the the full salary the other is the temporary worker not making as much but does not really there temporarily they're just as much as the permanent workers has there been some of use of temporary workers at GM. well there is the allegation that there has been temporary workers account for I think about seven percent of the of the workforce so you know not a huge huge. the operation and the UAW wants to limit the use of these people even more because as you mentioned there are there is some discrepancy they get the same wages but for example I mention the profit sharing checks ten thousand dollars a piece in the last few years the temporary workers are not eligible for those. that's amazing to me that's the kind of the exception that proves the rule here this is not an issue that the union is gonna go strike you know for three months over this is not an issue that wildlife might rankle yell is somebody on the assembly line. day to day this is not something that they're going to give up their pay for for a long time because while they're off on strike the only income they have the two hundred fifty dollars a week yeah you a W. strike benefits which comes from a a fund that now tops I think eight hundred million dollars at the end has for just such occasions but I guess it doesn't mention as an example if that's one of the big issues that there's really not a lot of substance behind the frustrations let's say in this walk out run this morning with the bus contributor chief executive magazine also at the wallstreet journal

"Then when you hear about how Kubrick basically tortured her in real life to make the movie it adds a whole new level of terror. I think she was so stressed out, real life thick showed it really did jangle e sheer performance was so jangle e it makes it makes me torn in how I watched the movie now because it used to be so perfect. Now I feel like Jesus. I always hate when win in directors or producers, or directors actors to that because it is, actually it's human, the actress kit. Get that emotion herself like I always remember reading in raging bull, where just before seeing started. I think is. Robert deniro or squeezy. Somebody reached out just slapped her cross the face. And she was saying, like I was so shocked in an my feelings, so hurt. And I was trying to Sima lines, I was crying. And and you know she psych and I didn't know why he did that. But she said, but then by takes us a really good team. And then she got nominated for an Oscar for that. But I feel like that's I also read that Dustin Hoffman did that to most people live in Kramer vs Kramer like taunting her about her did a lover and things like that just before the scenes and you know, she's like one of the greatest actress on the earth that Dustin Hoffman. But yes, Hume's that you have to, like, you know, torment psychologically tormentor between seeds like Hello. Who made you the acting police? One of my reason favorites is the baba. I love the movie so much. It also contains one of my favorite female characters ever because as he Davis's like she's incredible in it. And I love the journey that, that character goes on, then I won't spoil. But I will say that. You have to see it if you're listening, and you haven't because it's, it's so unusual, and it's such a great comment on motherhood, and it's such a great example of how this, this notion of empathy makes hor movies, a lot stronger, because even if you're not a parent, you can understand why this woman would be so stressed out that her child is in peril in their lives are upside down, and then the ending is so satisfying and messed up and great. And you're like, oh, I just I can watch it over and over again. It's really good movie. There's not a lot of female horror movie villains in, in general. They're not that many. Indian Tiffany's really memorable because of like a lotteries, and she's the dole, but she sassy, and she's she looks really cool and then in, in real life. She's Jennifer tilly's. So it's like a lot of things into us to us to be a good mother. She didn't like she's trying to quit her killing a ditch in. He does twelve step program really weird like the more that we talk about it. The weird is a bad man. We've gotten to know these dolls. Yeah, it's really I never thought about that before that over time. You have all these movies that have stacked up on the other, that's like, oh, well Michael Myers was scary. Jason scaring, the police Lisburn guy, so Freddie's now, scary just like all these guys. And also, I think that when you're talking about just biologically again in broad strokes. Dudes are big and can overpower you as a general rule. So it's like, yeah he's lumbering toward you. And he's not even coordinated in hand to hand combat statistically, you will probably lose. So that is scarier than like a woman. So it's really cool to see equal opportunity in villains women to when in your life because like next year. Li- Yona finally. Made into a horror movie, and it's this really scary folklore tale that has, like, terrified Latino children forever, and they've never seen the story told coming on this year in San Diego. And I was so I watch these things before we screen them, and I'm like, just watching it on my phone because I had no other choice. And I look, this is horrible and I'm not gonna tell anybody that I should watch it on a phone and screamed out loud. The phone. I'm like, yes. Chick up kid. Once again, isn't that funny that she's a Bill in that is attacking children? So that's specifically her job. She doesn't go after late grown ass men going after children. So I mean, I think there's a lot to be said for our thoughts and like biologically, what we think strength is. And where it exists. I wanna I'm really excited to, like, no, the next horror movie that you watch. So, like, I'll be tweeting, you or Instagram, you or something. Well, there's a lot of really frightening horror films coming up, sometimes when I'm at home at night. I watch the trailers. I'm like ooh. I wanna see that one. I want to see this one, but it'll probably be Halloween because, you know was talking about it just can't out I've done. I did a movie with Jamie Lee Curtis. So I'm just really interested to see how they handled. Yes. House arrest. Another truly horrifying film Halloween thinking, too. And we're doing a Cecchi series now which is going to be it's going to answer all the key questions. And there are so many I have it's going to be like a what do you call him and follow cheese. When episode might be about Glen, and Glenda on one episode might be about Chucky, and Tiffany, when they're teenagers one episode continue the film. So we're working hard on that. But in the meantime, gray it was very nice to me to a lovely and colorful person talking about your rainbow, bright hair. Thank you very much. This was awesome. I feel a little intimidate. Because she knows so much more about or films, they myself, but it was listen really interesting to listen to talk about them. I'll rest assured that the trade off is that you have a very full life that is free of terror, and sitting on your s in dark rooms screaming with strangers so, well, I am I am becoming I am integrating myself into the horror, film community, because there's so many like really interesting Twitter feeds, and blogs and websites. And now I'm going into the whole sort of there's all this check yard and Tiffany, are, you know, so it's really a fascinating world to to be involved with so good. So you there then. What a wonderful conversation, Jennifer gray in the forty years since I did my first horror film. I've seen the fan base grow from, oh, maybe five hundred people filling a small ballroom in a mid sized hotel to over a hundred thousand people packing convention centers and sports arenas. The fans are what keep the John Ruth thriving the franchises going, and we actresses employed. So thank you from all of us. And when you see out in about, don't be afraid to say Hello. We love it and only a few of us bite. I'm Adrian Bourbeau.
