That of course reveals straight away that there is a strong connection between the United Arab, Emirates Spice Agency and the Jackson the Japanese Space Agency The these two organizations have worked together on this project, and actually that's one of the perhaps the characterizing features of hope in the there is broad international collaboration. The University of Colorado in the USA has been responsible for some of the instruments that hope is carrying to Mars. Really interesting project and with the. The name kind of tells you. A mile is the Arabic word. Hope. Is A is a lot of is about international collaboration. It's about inspiring people. It's about inspiring. The Arab world generally. Because it is the first.

And and the boosters separating. We couldn't see the second stage separation. That was too far down rage, but As far as another flawless launch, and to the best of my knowledge Andrew to wrap this up. Sorry I've told a lot. But to the best of my knowledge, the pro the mission is. As we say in the in the game. It is nominal at the moment. It is no MINOL. Nominal are I do have a question about this mission? Yeah? What is the I am of? The mission is Jim because it's cold hype that the missions I is not that I hope they find Mars. I'm pretty sure I will. By, why are they going Yeah, that's a great question.

Like he's a fan as anything else, like, what would that Harrison Ford's admiration? I mean any actor would love to have a compliment from Harrison Ford. So I would say there. I mean he's never going to make me more of a chief's fan. I know that. But just the fact that you could just chop it up like that with him. Yeah. That would be not not happen. No. He's on a different plane. He's not talking about Kelsey. Sure. No, no. No, no, no. I have had moments like that where I've met people that I really admire and look up to.

Jeff Daniels ('To Kill a Mockingbird') on playing Atticus Finch
"Hi, everybody. I'm Peter Travers. And this is popcorn where we tell you. What is popping in the culture? And my guest today. Jeff Daniels who has multiple wards and the way I looked at it, he's too modest to say he's just been nominated for Tony Ward as best actor for tequila Mockingbird on Broadway, which is totally deserved. I don't even have to blow smoke with you. You know, I actually loved this, you know. Well, it's very nice. I think too. So are you just completely in Newark to all this now? It's you have your Emmys. You've been nominated for Tony before for God of carnage. Does it? What impact does getting nominated for an award have, you know, it's, it's? It is an honor to be nominated because I've been there when I wasn't and, and this was a big season for drama big season for drama Broadway, there, a lot of them and, you know, Mockingbird didn't get in as best new play did that make you stomp around for a couple of minutes when they will stop arounds big phrase. But, but it it goes to whatever the reasons are it goes to show that it's not automatic. You can't just go on, then I'll get nominated, and it's still you wake up in the morning. Bill ness. You wanna be invited to the big party, you know, and, and it is an honor to be there. And I, I noticed that when I was nominated for God carnage. I was probably the first big award. I'd ever been Emmys came later and all that. But I was in that room in Radio City Music hall, and I looked around at all the great work. That was all in one place. And these are just the people were nominated. There's other work that didn't get in that was, and you just feel I'm just glad to get it took it to the party. You really now anything after that, you know, would be great, but it really is to get in. Take something to well, and there's something about the Broadway the theater community, and I'm speaking to you as theater guy. Because back in Michigan. You have your own gross theater. You know this is something that matters to you. And you have even before we start talking about to kill a Mockingbird. You've signed on for one year doing this show. Nobody does anymore all stars. Don't know. Working after's, who need the job or in Evan Hansen, their second year and all of that. So it is, you know, it used to be what was done. Jason Robards Brian Dennehy comes to mind. Fonda Henry Fonda did mister Roberts for over a year looked at up league Cobb death of a salesman. Pretty sure over a year those guys were good. But that was kind of expected, you know that's what you did. And you and it's a big long commitment, but it's not that long when it's Atticus Finch, it's not that long when it's to kill a Mockingbird is not that long when you see what this play, and this production does to an audience night after night after night after night to get to be Atticus Finch, on Broadway six months, wouldn't have been enough so was happy to sign for your, and I'm interested to see what happens to the performance. Over the course of your I'm six months in now, and it's changed. It's deepened and it's gotten smarter and more, it's just gotten better. And so I'm interested to see where it is at the end when that happens when you have a director whose, they always use the phrase in the theater, okay after rehearsal. We've now frozen this show. This is now the way we do it, but can any actors really do that, because you are discovering something he's actor you can do it. You call it the mule on the trail performance going down the Grand Canyon. The mule didn't even have to look, you know, the meal just goes down. And then I do it this way. And then I get to here, and I do it that way. And you think about where you're going to eat throughout the whole show. I've seen that. I have ten that's the trap, you can get into that. You can literally your mind, just floats away and your thing and you go and stay here. Stay here stay here because, you know it so Bart. Shared the director Mockingbird. Basically, he's saying this is going to move around. I expect you to move it around expect you to explore a little bit here and there. You gotta you gotta have enough sense of story and experience to know when you're, I think Ellen all called stuffing the dog when you're just suddenly we've added four minutes to the show and it's probably you. You got it. You gotta is what you're doing. Is this thing you found in month two? And does it lead to something else? And now as a better place or do we need to go back here to where you gotta kinda gotta stay in the lane. But you get to move around and Bart has given us permission to do that. But I think this cast is really don't agree job of serving story. So they're in while it moves and changes a little bit. It always seems to be pointed in the direction of serving story, not some individual. Whereas my light kind of thing, not in this cast, but what I noticed when I was at this show was that there are people that I had seen at the theater before because of this property because of what Harper Lee wrote, there are suddenly because we read it in school, you know, but it wasn't work and there's just something about it. And watching, what Aaron Sorkin has done to take what Harper Lee did. And to update it without updating it. But just. Making something that's going on in this play speak to us. Now you had a lot of controversy with that in the beginning. You know there were people doing you can't around with the, the state, who was there say is the lawyer for the estate one person had some issues with an early draft. I think he ended up with twenty two drafts. By the end of it. So pretty good chance some of that stuff would have gone away anyway. But, but in whatever it, we got it settled and the risks for us. I thought once the lawsuit went went away was three adults playing the kids. Are we going to get away with that? Are we going to overcome Gregory Peck? And the last third third act of this thing, basically. Deviates is this is a play based on the book. And now we're gonna put out of his through something that the move in either the movie nor the book put him through in by putting him through that, that I think, is where Aaron was able to relate it to today. Is there goodness in people that we can rely on will the better angel in all of us? Rise to the top in twenty nineteen that isn't necessarily true. And I think you're on was forcing Atticus to face that, that sometimes you can't just wait for them to do the right thing. No, there's not much and Atticus does some things in this play that aren't very Gregory Peck. Yeah, there's flaws in him. But it makes it just so more mature engaging because I'm seeing somebody with human flaws doing this. Yeah. And, and to be more than fair to pack who only won an Oscar for it was a different time, early sixties. And it was from the point of view of a young scout nine years old. Whatever she is in the book looking up her great father. So he really kind of stayed up on a pedestal throughout the book and pretty much for the movie and we weren't we were a small town. Lawyer gets paid in vegetables and trying to raise two kids and he handles land dispute service agreements for closures inning. And right will, and then the judge comes over to his house in his life changes. That's how we approached it. But do you feel competitive in any of these awards with other actors that are nominated in your category? In other words, you and Bryan Cranston. Now just cold staring. Each other because everybody was nominated wants to win. Everybody wants to make the speed. Everybody wants to take on that toll because it's called it anyone who's ever stepped on stage. Once that it's there's, it's so special it, it's I've never been nominated for an Oscar, but I started in the feeder, high school and community college, and my purples theater companies twenty years old and off Broadway. And coming back to Broadway. Keep returning to it. And now forty two years later, you get to Atticus Finch you get to do the role of a lifetime on Broadway in the theater, that's a lot to be proud of. So this sit there with, with Brian and Patty and, and all the other guys. Adam driver all them. Yeah. The kid Jeremy pope. But you know, it's a great group and you're part of a lot of great work that competitive thing, nobody scores the most points. These things we're doing five different things really, really well, go back to the day that you decided you were going to be Atticus Finch on Broadway. Was there any terror about that ultimate decision that had nothing to do with you committing for year because it's one of the great roles it's a great character? And despite the fact that we see flaws in him, there's virtue in him to me, as watching actors all my life and reviewing them the hardest thing to plays virtue. There's, you know how do you play good and make good interesting? And you get and maybe Atika struggle to remain. Good to remain take the high road and there's a bit of a struggle. This is a helps that yeah, but that's his aim because while he sitting on that porch this world in the south in nineteen thirty four in Alabama KKK's there. He's not initially he's kind of letting it happen. He's not going. He's not out there trying to change it. He's not carrying plan. No, he's I thought that was really interesting. Certainly where he starts. He knows that if he takes this case to defend Tom Robinson. And he sits in front of a jury of white Christian farmers men. He knows what he's going, this is no longer just executing will or foreclose and, and he's avoided that just raised his kids. I'm just raising my kids without a wife. I'm raising my kids, and he knows that will change thing unpleasant, things will be sent to us, and it's going to go beyond that you're gonna have the KKK come up and visit you on your porch and go, what are you doing? And I did a lot of research to kind of understand that kind of just keep your head down and don't get involved and stay out of trouble as family and just raise your kids and don't get involved. There was a lynching last Tuesday night, we missed you there. We got another one Friday, common and Atticus has to either say, no, I'm not or tied up that evening. Bob can't make. And there's a lot of there are a lot of people, especially in today's America that are don't wanna look go wanna see don't want to. I. I don't wanna know about Russia. I don't wanna know any, we'll do errands kind of speak into that, that American that decent honest, hardworking American lose just doing this, and it's not enough to just look the other way not now wasn't for Atticus and it isn't for us. Now there's denial and there's a combination and enabling. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And that's why I think people sit there watching this like this, you know, this is somehow speaking to us right now involve you gonna get. Yeah. Yeah. What was what was your first encounter with this story? Did you read the book? I did you the first encounter really was? I probably had seen the movie as a kid. I don't remember we didn't read the book, we read, Lord of the flies and farewell to arms, which wasn't on the public school curriculum where I was at Aaron said, do you wanna play? Atticus finch. And I didn't blink. Absolutely. I think partly because the last five years ten years now. I've been taking chances are been. Challenging myself doing things that I wouldn't that other people think I can do, but I don't know how to do. So say yes.

"Right. Us your rainbow. I wanted to do my my Gregory Peck impersonation, so they got a couple of new whales at SeaWorld there, white Wales. That took my leg. Okay. They're not the white wells that took his leg in Moby, Dick. But they've got the beluga whales the white whales. The beluga whales are new to SeaWorld. Have you ever seen the beluga whales? I have not other so cute. You've got you've got a Google beluga whales. They've they've got to new beluga whales. They arrived on Saturday to the wild Arctic exhibit. They're both eleven years old one is named Grayson the other is named Oliver. Please. Have some? So I'm getting all my great literature mixed up here, and and once from an aquarium in Chicago, the other one actually comes from SeaWorld San Antonio. There are fewer than thirty belugas currently in accredited facilities. And and this is one of the ways that researchers can study beluga whales in captivity. They can study them. So when they have real issues with real beluga whales out in the real wild. We will have a basis of knowledge on these beluga whales so Kudo kudos to the to the animal experts at SeaWorld and I'm excited about going on. And these beluga whales are so cute. These are the ones you often see in like in YouTube videos of of kids like playing with beluga whales. And then the beluga whales are smiling or their photo bombing, weddings and stuff like that. But they're just totally adore. And that is so that is hanging. That's the wild Arctic exhibit is that the one that has a pink wins. No, that's that's Antarctica. So I think the wild Arctic exhibit is the one that has like that three d. Russian helicopter ride. I think that is I think that is the wild Arctic exhibit. I sometimes get nauseated. Do I get nauseated or nauseous on that one? I was getting my nausea. I get nauseous note. Laurel says that's wrong. Laurel says, you the ride is nauseous it gets you nauseated.

"The story of of advocates and the story of of tequila Mockingbird now. My question is how much because I know obviously, the the timing of this is is essential. You made a decision that, you know. This was the adaptation you were gonna make because it spoke to what we're going for. Yes. And what was that process that process was this first of all it? It's interesting talking to somebody who didn't walk into the theater with. Any preconception of nine what's going to happen? And asked me what you need. I'd love to. The process was this. The first thing I did was. My first draft wasn't good at all. Because all I did was really was take the book kind of take the best of the book the the all star Siemens. I'm damned them up. And and say it was a play. And it was a it was a greatest hits album done by a cover band. The really the best. You could say about it was that it was harmless. Which is I think the worst thing you can say about a point, right? And it was our producer Scott Rudin who gave me the following note. Atticus can't be advocates for the entire play. He has to become advocates. And I thought that's obvious. Of course. I I understand plays. The protagonist has to be put through something. He has to have a flaw. He has to be changed by the end of the play. How did Harper Lee get away with having Atticus be the same person for the entire book? How did Horton Foote who wrote the movie get away with having Gregory Peck me the entire person of the same person for the entire movie? And the answer was well advocates isn't the protagonist in the book. Or the movie scout is daughter is an advocate is a kind of father knows best God like figure in the book. And in the movie Atticus has the answers in the play that I wrote he struggles with the other questions. I wanted him to be the I wanted. Him to be the protagonist. So I need to get from a flaw. And what would that be? How do you take what the most iconic characters in literature who has no flaws and give them a flaw and expect to get out alive? Well, so I reread the book for the nineteenth time now and. And something really struck me. It advocates keep saying to his kids that there's goodness in everyone that really understands somebody. You gotta crawl around inside their skin for a while. He defends Bob you'll who's a member of the clan by saying you got to understand you just losses WPA job. He defends this woman. Mrs Henry Dubose who is just the most cruel kind of old lady racist. You got to understand. She's sick. She stopped taking her morphine recently. He even tries to defend the jurors who neighbors. Yeah, they're our friends and neighbors, we got understand. And this is the deep south. It's going to take time. Okay. It's just going to take time. And I thought. I'm not sure I buy that. And I hate to say it put it sounds an awful lot. Like that were fine people on both sides. Right. And they're that's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna take this thing that when we were taught the book and seventh eighth or ninth grade that we were always taught was virtue, and I'm going to challenge those beliefs in the play and by the time Atticus guests at the end of the play. He is going to come to the point where. He realizes that. What he considers what what you and I might consider a kind of liberal high minded men that we're going to understand everyone. Is bullshit. And and there are some times times when you have to roll up your sleeves him fight. And it was just too serendipitous that we have this president. Right now, you work you start you start working on this before Trump. I started working on it before Trump. And when Trump was not before he started running before he was inaugurated. I, and, but it was definitely this new world that we're living in that fueled this play those classic piece of literature where there is no event that happens in the play that doesn't happen in the book. I haven't made up events we just look at it a different way..

Who's white was inspired by the character of Atticus Finch, but supported integration and he had received death threats from the Klan to him to kill a Mockingbird with solidarity. It wasn't as if somebody stood up and started waving flags and you're right. But as if somebody said in principle, you're right. You're right. I've been kicked too much about it. Fisker net was taking a smoke break on the sidewalk downtown. He never read the book, but he heard enough to turn him off who will based on black people getting used. I just I don't let because.

It's the first book are had meaning in it. And it wasn't just like learn Miami. Sees kind of book it had. Meaning it had an impact and had a story to tell that needed to be told Rebecca SDS was just eight when her parents read it to her and she read it on her own at twelve even now in college her peers are impressed by it art guarantee, my English classes, and you'd have to introduce where you're from every time they'd say, so tell me something interesting about yourself in said up in the church where Harper Lee attended they're like, are you kidding me is just kind of hard to believe the novels popularity has spawned a cottage industry in monroeville in the courthouse gift shop, you can buy all sorts of Mockingbird stuff like fleece, vests and stone coasters with engraved Mockingbird logos. Their murals painted on walls in town. Commemorative bird, baths and bird houses walking tours. For the past twenty years. The town is stage to play of tequila Mockingbird right next to the courthouse. It sells out almost always during the normal performance. I'm the Mockingbird drunk. Yeah. Drunk, and I play boo Robert champion has played beret.

Life working in it everyday. It's really been helpful the novel was affective in changing white attitudes. Because it was written by a southerner, not some judgmental Yankee, it was a voice from inside the community who I have a read it. Struck us. Why people are like that.

"Flaky flake says he's gonna vote for cavenaugh tomorrow. So. Practically a done deal and did a. Murkowski from Alaska say, no, she won't pick. She said I could be wrong. She's a no for cloture Alaska vote count the same as everybody else. Shouldn't it really surely not? So we're talking about virtual reality. And we've got somebody who's had an experience. It sounds wrong. Really awesome. Oh, yeah. Oh, hey, before we get to that the movie I was talking about the World War Two movies, twelve o'clock high and send amazing movie. Just amazing. In fact, I was listening to a video the trailer for the movie was Gregory Peck, talking he said after I saw the screening of it. I asked Daryl zanuck the head of the studio if I just talk to you about this movie, he said, I think it's the most honest movie about what actually happens in war that we've made and. It's a real breakthrough. It is we're talking about this yesterday. I don't know why we had this period of history where we wanted to pretend that things weren't bad. I think trying to keep everybody's morale up even afterwards though. Even after the war's over. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It is curious. A real sociological. It's a study in sociological norms in what a society the way society approaches life that changed a lot. And this movie was a breakthrough in that night. It's an amazing movie. But anyway, it affected me deeply. Let's see. Oh, anyway, back to VR saris, we veer wildly from topic topic. And yes, we will have clips of the week and just a couple of minutes when we got on this topic because there's a virtual reality game that this guy said was the most immersive like a time machine thing he's done yet. Brought him to tears. That's right. World War Two, right? Embalmers bill. Hi, welcome. How are you, sir? Gentleman. Tell us about your VR deleo about two weeks ago. I kicked my seven year old. She the local VR arcade to to to get them in there, and they have a virtual reality. Simulation called the plane. The plane is where you get into an elevator. You stand out in front of this virtual or sim city, but it looks really authentic. You get into an elevator. You push the, but you go up to the top floor. The elevator opens it all there is a wooden plank your circle walkout to in front of the entire city. I down one hundred stories my hands are getting sweaty. And let me tell you it opened up. I started to sweat. I started to shake had to back up. And and I could hear the people in the background laughing because they can see on the TV what you're looking at. But that did not do that. I understand the laughing the market, but that's what your brain supposed to do. It's supposed to take in this information and tell you what's going on. And that's what it's doing. Yeah. Yeah. Is it Bill isn't that had to be a really interesting wrestling match between your rational brain. Then your animal brain it's unexplainable. So I kicked it off. Because I just couldn't do it. So I took it off. And then I said to myself, wait a minute. I'm standing on the ground. I'm here in a building here people. It's not real. So I did it again. The second time was even worse. I couldn't do it. I couldn't even take a step forward. The second time it was so bad. But, but they have this option to really make you like if you really want the full experience, they will take a two by twelve and stick it in front of you. So that you can actually feel like you're stepping on the plane that you're virtually. That being truly fill my pants and not just come close to a real poop. Not hurtful. Who? My heart rate on my iphone, what off the chart signing. Disclaimer because a person can have a heart attack or something. I thought I did and yes they do. Yeah. I'll bet I'll be damned Bill. That's a really good, man. Good to talk to you. Thanks, right. All right. No, no. Why won't and you can't make me? That's our first call at two thousand eighteen was pretty good. Hey, let's let's make it our last. We might want to. I know. Tell you what we take a call like that. And I think we ought to take calls. Yeah. That's the trap. And then take two more. No need to finish the sentence. Wow. That's really interesting. So I need to feel terror. I've know existential terror all the time, I have no interest at this point in my life. Having virtual terror. No. Kids, obviously, do your built different when you're a kid, especially boys is that gonna will that rewire your brain to where you're starting to do crazy stupid things because your brain starts to think. Okay. This isn't real no, man. Could that happen? So lack of reality to youth period. Oh, sure. You don't understand death high? Which is why soldiers are young men a lot harder to get forty year olds to do this. You know, I'm thinking about that WW two bomber simulation. Deleo there'd be plenty of terror in that too. Although it's not quite the same immediate. You can easily argument Wyler's of value and understanding that oh, I'm not equating the two. I'm just thinking about your reaction, or what my reaction would be. There would also be the if we're hit and it's significant enough damage in the pilot can't land the plane, I will punch to my death as opposed to. I'm about to plunge to my death in the, you know, the previous example, bills example, I've spent a lotta time in VR, and I still have those by an example. So there's games where I'm kind of like swinging around from tree to tree like Spiderman, right? And if my character gets off balance, or if I land offer, even though my feet physically have never left the ground. I still put my arms out the kind of steady myself so weird. It's very surreal. So I wouldn't I don't go out and buy the latest coolest TV. I don't need four K as opposed to UTV's as oppose. I don't care. Good enough already or twelve d Dolby or whatever. But I could spend a lot of money on this virtual reality stuff gets good enough. I really could. I'd buy the good one. I hear you. I miss speaking technology, and if you listen to the whole show, and you really should every single day. You already know this. But I wasn't Marshall. I think reporting on the story earlier that Chinese hackers. Well, the government used the tiny chip to infiltrate a lot of America's top companies, and there's a fairly strong level of leaf that some of the many many God knows how many Chinese computers Chinese assembled computers that are being used in the government in the military may have tiny little chips in them to spy on us and perpetrate. God knows what evil. I mean. It's so freaking obvious. I I can't believe we went down that road. Wouldn't that be something? Oh, can you? Imagine. Serena bombers are advanced bombers are fighters are submarines. Might have Chinese spy chips in them. Oh, great. All right. Well, brave new world is approaching rapidly. But right now, we need to take a look back at the week that was it's cow. Clips of the week..
