"Inner, your innermost feelings. Amanda has an answer yet. I'm sorry, I'm just still thinking about you just wandering around on the wars. What was the name of the demon in the exorcist? Pazuzu? Pazuzu, that should be Amanda's opinion. That's a good one. I'm now picturing Amanda picking up Pazuzu at a singles bar. Pazuzu is sitting sitting at the end of the bar, having a Mai Tai. Yeah, nurse in a Coors light, waiting for somebody to notice him. You can come here often or. Yeah. Yeah. Haunt me, please. Hug me, daddy is my pod. Is that about demons? Is it like they were watchable, but for demons? Yeah, it's like long form interviews about ghosts we'd like to have sex with. Me and Javier Bardem. I thought it was gonna be like cold case of you trying to figure out which ghosts you have had sex with over time. So there's like a true crime element to it. That night in Portugal where it seemed like the shutters kept closing. Last house on the left daddy. Yeah..

"The world. So we shouldn't be scared about international. What it's called international. Go ahead. To repeat, what advice would you give your children the children of Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz? If they said they wanted to go into the film business. I don't know. I mean, I can tell you that they are not doctors, for sure. All right, okay. Oh, I can see that. I can see that. It's a tough one. It's a tough one because I say so before I, we are a very strange example of success that doesn't have to do anything with the work we do. We both are from Spain. We have built a huge, beautiful, amazing career doing what we love, both in Spain, and out of Spain, we still keep on earning artillery doing what we love, we are appreciated by you guys, we thank you for and that's not useful. So when anybody says I want to be an actor, I go, I feel the same thing that I felt when I was young and my mom was doing theater and she was unemployed and I go, okay, if you really modest to you, if it really really, opens up a channel of passion and communication and you feel that you don't know to do anything else. But at go for it. But if otherwise, but also in the same place, what jobs out there are safe as we call it. I don't know. So you have a passion, go for it. I'm pray. Yes.

"Not having bumps along the way with the spell? I think that's a challenge. I also bucking that, I mean, today the world is a different world than it was in the 50s, of course. The whole social media and the instance of the instant moment of everything being recorded and put it out there immediately on the echo of that. It's a different life world that it was in the 50s. But again, to be able to maintain that combination of private and public, it must be very hard. And I think that was one of the reasons why the marriage, I'm saying the main reason, but one of the reasons that the marriage had some problems, because it's human. It's a lot. It's a lot. For so many years, with the public eye on top of them. I mean, it may not be for sure. So the movie comes out and drops on Amazon where you can watch it if you choose. But extremely well received for the entire group of it's really the central four Quartet of unicole J. K. Simmons and Nina arianda. And then Oscar nominations morning, you've been through this. But let's talk about the difference this time. You are nominated for best actor in the same year that your wife is nominated for best actress. Spectacular. I said, darling, we're going to watch the nominations live now. She never watched life. The opposite of me, I watched my life. No, because we know and we knew that it was going to be very, very, very difficult. They will happen. But if happens, I want to see it. Yeah. So he took me a while to convince her. We finally did. We put a TV on. It was a small sulfur. We get together. And the first name is mining. Yes. The first was most international feature for the good boss. Didn't happen. That was a down. Then it was Javier Bardem, the first name which I knew he was going to be the first one because of the B yes. I heard I was like, wow, okay. And she was like jumping. I said, no, no, no, no, no, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Wait. This doesn't make any sense if you're not in. And then it hurts come is Justin Coleman, and she says, too many seats. And she said that. Penélope Cruz. And that was a moment. Where I jumped. On hunter. I don't know how to translate that, but it's like, no, yes, now yes. Now, yes, we celebrate now and make now it's something to sort of read. And she was absolutely taken by and we both were taken by it. And it's a miracle. It's such a great thing. It's a gift. I don't know how to say that. It's everything. It's everything in the sense that mostly I'm so happy I'm humbly dude for being there. But in her case, it's a rug Spanish. And that's a big thing. It's her second time in Spanish. It's a big thing. And it will be very happy if she wins. I know I have a hard divided, of course, as you can imagine. But she's my wife. That's right. I adore her. And I think because that alone because of the Spanish thing, it's very important. And she's amazing in the movie. As Nicole and Jesse can, Olivia and Kristen. But it made me very happy to really, it makes us very happy to share this. It's very special. So thank God I convinced her to see it. I recorded it. I have a video. You have it here. That's so cool. Well, very well deserved. It so exciting. We wish you guys the best of luck on March 27th and thank you again for coming to Boulder to do this. Thank you so much. Thank you. Can I say, can I say something? Because the podcast, you can finish the podcast here, no? There is a lot of people here that you were doing a line, I was capable of asking you to make some questions. Oh yeah, yeah. I mean, are you okay with that? Okay. Good. So if you raise your head, this is so nice. Let's start right here. I'm going to just repeat the question so that everybody can hear it. Her son is a director. A student and a student to become a director. And she likes the way that you have spoken about the role of directors in your life. What would you say the most important advice for an aspiring director is? I had the chance to work with amazing directors. I'm there all good people. I mean, it's about the humanity. It's about the good person behind the role that we play on a set. The energy of a director is the energy that rules the set. So the technical stuff he will get there is about being aware that his relationship with the crew is going to really create the atmosphere that's going to rule the shoot. And that is way more than important at the framing, I think. Because it's from there, where the love, the passion, and the trust for the actors are born are born from being from feeling safe and protected. Because we are very vulnerable. I mean, it's not that we are special what the fuck we are. But when you are playing certain scenes or something wrong, like when I was doing the ages of Lulu with the net thing, you are in a vulnerable place. And things too big as Luna, he made me feel, don't worry. He made me feel like he was doing it just for him. There was a camera rolling, but he made me feel like, don't worry. I'm here for you. That's the most important thing I would say to him. Let's go to our next question. The question would be, you know, kind of what you think the future of Spanish language films are in the U.S.. I will just add a quick note to that that we are in a moment where the most watched show ever on Netflix is now the Korean language Squid Game. So it does seem and we're coming off two years ago, parasite, a Korean language film, one of the best picture Oscar, seems like subtitles are less scary for people than they used to be. Yeah, it's true. I don't know. I don't know how to answer that. I wish it would be more. But I think that it's, as you said, Scott, the audience is less scared to read subtitles. And I think we should thank the platforms for that. Because they are more willing to see international feature with the committee with the commodity of their houses and pull the subtitles and without the anxious with the anxiety of being on a screen and fearing out if they're going to lose anything. I think the Oscar branch is more international and is welcoming more the international work. And let's not forget Hollywood itself is very international. I mean, you got to do and there is people from everywhere. I don't know how many Americans they were. But that's the greatest thing about Hollywood. You really brings a lot of time from all around.

"Was did you grow up with I love Lucy in Spain? Not really. I love Lucy wasn't as popular as his as he was here. But once I heard about that project, I knew who Lucille Ball was kind of, I want to dig in. I want to investigate and I saw him. I saw both of them. I started to see the episodes, and I was mildly loved with them. I'm like, wow, what a couple. What they meant, what they create. I mean, the revolutionary revolutionary they were in many aspects. So it was kind of obsessed. And I kind of felt, oh no, linked to his energy. I could relate to that energy. And I wanted to play that energy because it's something I haven't played very often, even only if I've ever played. So I chased it. And it took a good four or 5 years. Wow. Now, once Sorkin became involved as the writer and the director, he's always said he likes to work. He says he's like a dog. They actually like being kind of, they're comforted by confinement sometimes in a crate or whatever. And for him, that means with Steve Jobs, it's going to be three the structure is three presentations of Apple products or in this case, it's going to be the making over the course of a week of one specific episode of I love Lucy while all these other things are going on in their lives. So this was based on a real episode called Fred and Ethel fight. And I guess was that sort of the north star for you and Nicole Kidman who plays Lucy and everybody in terms of how do you how do you prep to play this guy? I guess specifically focused on that episode. Yes, absolutely. And that was the episode that will trigger our approach to, in this case, we can Ricardo. But our told us from the first moment ago, I don't want any impersonation. I won real people because of this story that I am more interested in telling. But of course, we are actors. And I know JK and everybody was trying to approach those characters as much as we could. Without losing the line, the guideline that the script has and we thought getting into a kind of a mimic imitation because that won't make any favor to anyone. So it was challenging in the sense that it took me to me a lot of work to get there. And at the same time, the good thing is that in a funny way, I wasn't aware of how much of an icon he was until I finished the movie. That is good. Otherwise, I would have said no. Panicking. And in addition to being an actor and a executive because desilu productions, of course, was the thing. He was also, of course, a singer and a band leader, which meant Javier Bardem, who I believe is not a singer or a band leader, had some work to do. Yeah, and you should see their face of the person who was teaching me. Singing. Her name is Fiona MacDonald. She's great. She's from Scotland, by lives in London. And it was everything was through Zoom. So let's start from the beginning. She was so cool. Yeah. We have some work to do. You're bad. And we did. We spent hours and hours and hours. And then there's a moment where the voice comes out. And you go like, wow. Yeah. And it felt so good. And it's a muscle. It's a muscle. If you, everybody can really sing. You have to train. You have to train. Look at McDonald's. No. No, no, no, no, you don't want that. Now, setting aside all of that, just from the acting standpoint, is there anything harder than playing someone who's playing someone? It was fun to play the in the case of desi, he was kind of similar. It was more different with Lucille Ball and Lucy Ricardo. The voice beats and everything that she called, that's so beautifully. This is what's kind of the same person, a little bit more high on the high pitch when he was in front of people because it's normal is what you do when there's a theater full of people. But he was not energy. And that's where I like. He won't change. He was done man and he was going with that energy all over the place, meaning he won, give up in front of anybody, not even Morris. Yes. Like in the movie, we see. Fuck with the killing. It's a great line. And working with Alan stark and I have to say it's a dream come true for any actor. To have those words to have those scenes to have those characters, the first time I read the script, I have to stand up and shake the body because I was so nervous I was so much wanting to say those lines and I had my first zoom. He was not convinced that I would do the role. There were looking for all the actors. And I always say, listen, I don't know if it's gonna happen or not, but thank you for allowing me to read your script because that alone is an amazing experience for an actor. Now I absolutely everyone recognizes he is one of the greatest writers ever. But he also, it's not easy to act in one of his movies because he likes to shoot fast, and he wants you to stick to his dialog. There's no improvising at all. And they're very verbose characters, not in a bad way, but there's a lot of material. You guys had 38 days to do this during the pandemic. What's it like having to learn and deliver Aaron Sorkin dialog? Well, you have to for sure to learn those lines and you should, because there are so there's a lot of work behind those lines. There's a lot of intelligence and sense of drama. I mean, he knows what he does. And of course, you have to stick to those words. Again, I'm the foreigner. Playing it for her. So I have that bullet also. And he was super respectful and nice and I was very into it. Yeah, yeah. But the rest of the cast because I was the one who was like, can I have another one? Yes. And I will change one work here when we're there because I said, I don't think my country would say that word because I don't think he was so good in English. So it was the man who changed our story. They don't need any change. They are beautiful. They are perfect. And it's true. He likes to shoot fast. He doesn't want to take to take the most. And basically what he does is the whole scene. So he's very much like theater. But it's great to have that as well because it makes you build it makes you be alert. It may just be a worry. It makes you be really playing with the other one. So we've talked about the fact that going back 30 years, you have worked numerous times with Penelope before and before and since she's been your wife. Here is a character who every day for years is going to work with his wife and they have very high highs, very low lows. Take me into that aspect as you're approaching these characters, is that something you could even fathom doing with your and.

"To be a welder who's played by Josh Brolin comes upon a satchel full of drug money. And is running. And your character Anton chigurh is trying to track him down. And what we're going to listen to is a phone call between you and this guy who has the money. And one of the things that is referred to in the call is that you know where his wife lives and is headed to odesa Texas and the clear intimation is that you will kill his wife if he doesn't bring you the money. So let's just listen to this conversation. This is our guest Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin in No Country for Old Men. You need to come and see me. Who is it? You know who it is? You need to talk to me. I don't need to talk to you. I think you do. Do you know what I'm going? Why would I care where you're going? I know what you are. Yeah, where am I? You're in the hospital across the river, but that's not what I'm going. Do you know what I'm going? Yeah, I know where you're going. All right. You know she won't be there. It doesn't make any difference worse chase. So where are you going up there for? You know how this is gonna turn out, don't you? Nope. I think you did. So this is where I offer. You bring me the money and I let her go. All the while she's accountable. The same as you. That's the best deal you're gonna get. I won't tell you to save yourself. Because you can't. And that's one of the ten scariest guys I've ever seen in a movie. It's our guest Javier Bardem from the film, the Coen brothers, No Country for Old Men. You know, your character Anton sugar, we don't really know anything about him in the film. And I gather in the novel, the cormac McCarthy novel. He's also not so clearly defined. Did you have a backstory in your head that told you how he became what he was? That's a very funny and very interesting question. No, I didn't. And actually that's one of the things I love to do the most to create a story backstory in my head that will help me to understand what I'm doing. But in this case, I've prepared a role with my acting teacher Juan Carlos Correa, which is being my acting teacher since 22 years ago.

"And apocalypse is now and great performances done in English. Along with some of the great performance also in Italy, France, and of course Spain, which I have the chance to work with some of them. But no, I never thought about going out of Spain and working in a foreign language ever because that was truly out of my radar. That's not going to happen. But it happened. That's a weird thing. And if you ask me, why I can tell you, there's this lovely man called Julian snobel which I love and I endorse who had the guts to say, I want you to do before night falls. And everybody around us like, why? Who's that guy? Why? Why him? And he said, well, because I like him, because he saw someone some of my movies in Spain. At that time, I didn't speak any English. And he said, we're going to make this together. Don't worry. It's going to be fine. And I have one of the best experiences of my life. During that movie, I will never forget it. And we work hard and we made it. And I guess that brought some attention. You really didn't speak English before getting into that movie. No, I mean, just hello and give me a glass of water. That's all. I'm always saying that I know how to curse very well because I'm learning English listening AC/DC. So I'm a huge fan of AC/DC and so I was translating the lyrics the lyrics. So I know how to curse. You have to start somewhere, right? What we should just pause a minute on this film because it was a real important one for you. Before night falls directed by Julian schnabel, it's you play the poet and novelist right now, the arena who was a gay man, persecuted in Cuba during the revolution, it kind of takes us through the 60s through the Mariel boatlift when you his character ends up in New York and gets aids. I mean, it's really dramatic role. And one of the things that's fascinating to me about it is that it takes place in Cuba but much of the dialog is in English. How is acting English different from acting in Spanish for you? It's a different situation and it's like here, I'm trying to express myself. I'm sure some opinions and be relaxed and giving you what I think, giving you some thoughts about what I feel or what I think. And there is this office in my brain. Full of people working at the same time that I'm talking to you, trying to not. Be wrong with the intonation with the words so it's very exhausting. The office is translated. Okay. If I speak Spanish, that office is closed. There is nobody in the office. I mean, I'm fine by my own. Funny enough, funny enough, and that's something that I discovered during the falls. It gives me also a different kind of freedom because I don't know how to say it. It's not about not having respect to the words. Of course, I have respect to the words. But since some of the words doesn't have an emotional resonance on me, I can play with them more freely. When in New York speaking in your mother tongue, you may be more cautious of using some words or using some intonations. In English, I feel more free also to try and experiment things and experiment tones and the way of speaking and so one thing gives you the other. Javier Bardem, speaking with Dave Davies in 2011..

"Long line of actors. Your mom, right? Your grandparents, your brother, your sister. When you were a kid, did you see yourself becoming going into the profession? Not really. I actually wanted to go to the opposite direction because I was so used to see all of this in my daily life that there was no magic in it for me. It wasn't a really intrigued about what that was. So I started to study as the kid and then I started to work as a painter and I went to bellard's artist, to paint, but little by little, I got into the movies by doing some work as an extra. So I could get some money and keep on painting. One day they offered me this couple of lines and I said, well, why not? And I did it and I felt great. I feel like, well, I know this place. I belong here. And then I start to study as an actor. I went to my acting school, which is the one that I'm still going. Because I think it helps me a lot to really remind myself why do I love what I do? Because sometimes you'll get lost. Sometimes you are like, is this worth it? What am I doing this? Am I doing this for the right reasons? Blah, blah, blah. So coming back to that. The acting school helps me to really put myself in the old shoes. And then one day they gave me this role where I have to speak more than two lines and I prepare myself and I am enjoy it. And I guess from that moment today, I've been very lucky, very, very like and very blessed by working with some of the greatest directors I ever dream of. Well, I mean, you certainly had success at it. I mean, you won the Goya award for best actor for the film Boca Boca. I guess what people call the Spanish Oscars, sort of the leading film award. And you became a really leading actor in Spanish cinema. Did you aspire to act in English then at.

"Study in English. Was it hard to learn English as a I think a very difficult language as all these rules? But it's all these exceptions to the rule. So it's often not helpful. I was always fighting with all the teachers. That was the thing that was driving me crazy at the beginning. But now why is playing to be why? What is the logic that I love these languages? I just love languages. I love them so much and I hope I can learn many more. So you're married to Javier Bardem, and you're both in new movies. Now, you're of course in parallel mothers. And he's in being the ricardos, playing Desi Arnaz. So how did you first meet, did you meet on set? So we met when I was 17 and he was 21, and we were doing our first movie together. So, you know, it's like 30 years ago that we know each other. Long time. You haven't been married nearly that long. How many years after you met? Did you become a couple? No, no, no, we've been together like 15 years, but we know each other for we've been friends before that. Have you worked together since becoming a couple? We love working together, but not something that I want to do every year. That is once in a while. But I think he's such an incredible actor. I love working with him. And of course, it makes all the logistics also easier. But we don't want to force it in any direction. If something else appears that is right and we feel it's right and it's the right moment. We will. But we are not trying to find things to do together all the time. I think in a way it's just like a natural reaction to protect the relationship. Well, I want to thank you so much for talking with us. No, I thank you. Thank you so much for this conversation. Penélope Cruz, speaking to Terry gross last December. She's up for an Oscar as best actress for her role in parallel mothers..

"The flood of tears, Penelope is very emotional, and she would have been crying from start to finish, and she knew how to replace the tears with the exact amount of guilt and shame in a state of constant alarm. What does it mean when he says he wanted you to surrender yourself to him as if in a state of hypnosis? Well, I always do that when I'm working with him, sometimes when I'm working with other directors and they don't, they don't want to rehearse. So they don't want to block time to rehearse, or for whatever reason, it doesn't happen because you go from one movie to the next. I take the time to prepare with my acting teacher. And I love that time of research. But I don't work with my acting teacher when I'm with Pedro because I arrived to the set empty from zero. I read the story. I start, of course, I can not stop thinking about it after I read it. And I come with proposals or ideas of how I see it, but I can really open to listen and to understand what he wants because he will give us that time. He gives us in this movie. It was like four months or more of rehearsals. And it was very necessary in this case. Because milena and I we were so touched and affected by the script and the characters and what happens to them that we would start reading a scene with Pedro and we would immediately start grind. And we could not control it. It was just moving so much inside of us. And he said, that's fine. I know we have to go through this process, but those are your own tears and they are not the ones with the characters. And in my case, for Janice, we express ourselves in very different ways. My character is more in a situation like the one she goes through. I would be crying like 20 times a day. But she doesn't. She doesn't..

"In New Jersey, in for Terry gross. Penélope Cruz is nominated for an Oscar for her starring role in parallel mothers. The latest movie written and directed by Pedro almodovar. She's at the emotional center of several of almodovar films, including all about my mother, broken embraces and pain and glory. She became the first Spanish actress to win an Oscar when she won best supporting actress for her performance in the 2008 film, Vicky Christina Barcelona. We're going to listen to Terry's interview with Cruz, recorded last December. Parallel mothers is set in Madrid and revolves around two women who accidentally become pregnant. Crews plays Janice, a professional photographer around 40 years old, who is thrilled to be pregnant, although she's no longer with the father. Her roommate in the maternity wing is a teenager named Anna, who is filled with regret about having become pregnant. Their lives intertwine in increasingly surprising ways. The movie, in addition to telling their stories, finds the parallels between the pain and necessity of being honest about your own past and your country's dark past. Penélope Cruz welcomed to fresh air, I love this film. I love your performance in it and your performance in so many other films as well. So thank you for coming on our show. Thank you so much. You have two children. What did you discuss with almodovar about how to portray the birth scene? At the beginning of the film, which is such an important scene that kind of sets the tone for the rest of the film. Well, we discussed a lot about it because it's true that Pedro is very open to the process being a collaboration. And especially in that case, since he has never given birth, he was asking questions to all of us to the women around that have given birth. So he wanted to know all the details about the different ways that it could happen different things that could go wrong. In my mind, you know, I needed to be really clear about what moment of the process I was in. When the contractions are still happening every few minutes, it's not like when they happen very, very one after another when you are closer to closer to the time where you have to push. So yeah, there were a lot of conversations about that. The movie also portrays just like the physical bond between mother and her child. And the experience of touching a newborn baby. And then continuing to hold the baby after you take the baby home and what that feels like, like, the touch, how do you express that on camera? How do you express that emotion.

"She was a unique individual. She really was. Both in mannerisms and Javier Bardem was by no means a shoe in for a Desi Arnaz. No. But again, he had that sort of free wheeling charisma that Desi Arnaz had. I mean, he was like this outsized personality. I thought Javier Bardem did a really good job of that. I don't know that I necessarily always think of Javier by him as like a big outside personality. I usually think of him as more reserved kind of quiet and deep river slow rivers run deep kind of guy, but as your announce was very much like a big flirtatious loud. Very outgoing into it. Yeah. Very outspoken. He's a performer. He's a musician. Bandleader even. Yeah, I don't see that with Harvey everybody, but he played it really well. Yeah. It's like desi wasn't out with the band leader. It's like you were literally like the personality of the band. In front of him, but it's basically you're the liaison with the crowd. And so you kind of have to embody the spirit of the music. And so, you know, I thought that how you did a good job of embodying Ricky in that sense. Yeah, and he played guitar really well. He played the drums really well. I think his physical performance and musical performance was really spot on for that character. Both of them. Yeah. I thought it was a little weird because I grew up watching I love Lucy and like Nick and knight. And it was on reruns during the day. It was one of those shows I found occasionally. It was like one of those classic Andy Griffith kind of things where it's like I went through a spell of watch and Twilight Zone. Yeah, it was like it was on TV Land all the time, and it was on deck at night. Yeah. And it was probably the first landmark sitcom to come about. Yeah. I definitely remember watching I love Lucy and happy days. Yeah. Which happy days is the homage to that time period. You know, it's the 70s look back at the 50s by the 70s the 50s were already nostalgia. Which is crazy to think about. Yeah. And so those were the days that they must have been. But yeah, it was like I love Lucy was the first big milestone in sitcom. And Lucille Ball, you could argue it was the first true icon of TV. And Desi Arnaz two, but definitely Lucy. Well, and they were talking about some of the numbers. At the very beginning, they're talking about the size and the scale of how big I love Lucy was in the American household and what they're saying at one point you think of like the Super Bowl. You think of things that hit like number one like can't like the finales of certain shows and it's like 10 million. 15 million. It's crazy number of people watching it and they're like, I love Lucy got like 60 million people watching at the same time. Regularly. Granted, there were like four channels back then. But it was true that this was the landmark show for television where when you see in the movie CBS approaches, Lucille Ball, she's kind of like television. I'm on radio. Yeah. Yeah, which was still the big deal at the time. You know, post World War II. TV was very much a burgeoning thing. But it's like that's an interesting thing that's an undercurrent of this movie is how technology and the modern era of the Internet and all 24 hour TV is kind of diluted fame..

"And as it is here to the score is phenomenal. It underscores what we're seeing on screen. It helps it. it supports it. And it's just one of those ensemble performances where everybody's in the same movie. Everybody's pulling on the same rope and there's really not a moment a awry. It's a film that will reward close viewing and reviewing. It's a film by a filmmaker really at the absolute height of his powers and his tolerance for all of what he must have to go through in order to realize this vision and put it on the screen. Which i'm sure has to be incredibly exhausting. So i'm not sure how much longer he's going to be able to work at the level that he's working at but right now marshalling bigness in the way that he is is really something to behold so. I couldn't speak higher of this film. It was an emotional experience. It was a world building experience. And i think if you can find a reason to go to the cinema go to the theater and see the movie there you will be rewarded and you deserve that reward after making it through this pandemic and not being able to participate in everyday life. It's a it's a great way to go reward yourself if you really want to get the most out of it. Give dune the book a reread. I think rereading the entirety of the novel. Even though this film only covers the first half of the novel will inform your appreciation and understanding of what you're seeing in a way. I felt the power of what was to come at the end of the film. Whereas if you didn't know what was to come in the novel. I it's still put up on the screen in a way designed to tug your emotions based on the experience you've just had with these characters but knowing what i know. Those moments were all the more powerful and freighted with emotion at the end. Couldn't say enough about it one. It is especially also shout out. Javier bardem 'cause he does an incredible performance as still are who is the leader of the freemen that they encounter just towards the last third of the film and he is only in a couple of scenes but in actor of his abilities is really what's required to lend that character who kind of tends to speak for much of the freemen's burden you know. He has to do that in a couple of scenes speak for an entire race of people and he manages to do that so was really really impressed. It's a film. i can't wait to see again. I can't wait to read about it and own as many books about it as i do. Blade twenty forty nine books purposely. Didn't listen to de knees. Conversation with christopher nolan about the film which came out a couple of weeks ago on the dj podcast which is a very good source for listening to directors. Talking about films. I was going to listen to it on the back but i wanted to be alone with my own experience of the felt and in a lot of ways. I think that's really the most any filmmaker could probably hope to ask for an audience. Member is he gave me a shared experience but he also gave me an individual experience and that is a complement of the highest order. So go see dune. Let me know what you thought Let me know if you read the book or reread the book. But i will get this out next week when many view hopefully will have already seen it. Please please please make the effort to go and see it in theater as intended. Watch it for your second or your third time at home. But for your first time really go to the theater and just be blown away by the sonic and visual power and majesty of the film making. You won't be disappointed. Thanks so much for listening. We'll talk again soon bye i..

Nicole Kidman, Javier Bardem in Talks to Play Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in Aaron Sorkin-Directed Film
"You've got split into. That's as close as i will ever get to desi arnez voice because it has been announced that aaron sorkin is making a lucille ball and desi arnez bio pic starring. Nicole kidman and javier bardem. I guess this is amazing but also it seems kind of terrible as as ideas go. What was your reaction to this news. My first reaction is. I'm just glad that nicole kidman and gets to have a little bit of just the tiniest bit of fine. Did you ever happened to catch the prom. Was the ryan murphy. Film version of a broadway musical speaking of things. We'll be discussing later on this podcast. I sure did. And i was not a fan nor was i. The only thing that i could say is like when they let nicole kidman do something which was very rare in this. She seemed to be having the time of her life and she was like. I don't have to have a breakdown. Like on a courtroom stand and talk about like really grim things while being filmed for once. And i'm flying free and so you know i assume this. Is i think this project in one form or another. I think errands has been trying to do this for a while. If you google. They're kind of like mentions of this project. Bopping around and i think it's about their marriage and working relationship presumably their ups and downs in it. Because it's a marriage. So i don't think it'll all be sunshine and roses for her but at least you'll get to do comedy. Yeah i think that's right on the one hand. We have seen her do comedy a few times in the past perhaps most notoriously in bewitched your icon nora ephron i kind of interesting but kind of bungled but kind of notable movie. What were you gonna say not. Everything works in not everything works. I'll say next week we're going to talk about one division. And i think the bewitched conversation and the idea of using bewitched as a satirical vehicle into another story is new again so as usual ephron ahead of the curve there nevertheless nicole kidman i. Is she gifted comic actress. I don't know maybe she doesn't have to be for this obviously lucille ball. Desi arnez their story as showbiz. Pioneers is not just a comic story. There's there's a lot of high drama that's place there. The other thing. I thought of when i read this news was that one of aaron sorkin non adapted works to to screen is something called the farnsworth invention which is about essentially the creation of the tv by filo farnsworth and we know that the origins of television and the origins of entertainment are quite important. Taryn sorkin and to the kinds of stories. He's he's often telling stories about people at the forefront of a new life changing kind of technology or culture. We've seen it with steve jobs. We've seen it with moneyball. We've seen it with the social network. He loves to find pioneers and tell their stories. And there's no doubt that. And lucy were major pioneers and tv. So you know. Of course we're going to watch it and devote six to twelve episodes about this on our show. And i'm sure it'll be good slash not good.

Well, she's been cast to Aby Lucille Ball and an upcoming film being the Ricardos with her. Javier Bardem and People are not here for that. Yeah, She's gonna be Lucille Ball. Yeah, I remember that. I think she is no longer I do, too. But there are better options to someone to play Lucille Ball and Javier Bardem he three piers, Stephen. Yeah, right. This is a bad best, Most delicious village.

Right. And what's great is actor Valerie Burton Alley, even retweeted the story saying, Hey, Debra Messing was robbed. Another user responded, saying, I'm just choosing to believe she was not available. Of course. Debra Messing got in on this very tweeted with a comment saying, Oh, no, I'm I'm available guys. And you know the thing is, Debra Messing has already proven herself as Lucille ball because there was an entire episode of Will and Grace in this new incarnation of it. And the whole thing is, it's a spin off like a spoof of I Love Lucy. She was phenomenal, like she's doing the conveyor belt with the chocolate and she was incredible. And it wasn't like a caricature. It was she just genuinely got into the role of Lucille Ball. I don't know. I think Nicole Kidman can condone a lot of things. I don't think she would take on the role, obviously, if she if she was gonna make a mockery of it, But I do think I do think Debra Messing was robbed there. That's too bad. She was already in the remake of B, which lets I'm here for the Deborah Rising round. Let's do that. Let's change that. Can we go toe? What changed out work and sign that petition? Alright, alright. How many people are ready for Girl Scout cookies? Maybe that's a good question. Are you buying growth called cookies?

Sometimes I remember that farmer's market here in framing and we'd have the girl scouts out there and they'd be a churches. They be down at the town hall, and they'd be all over the place and you'd buy them there. Often times, but now they're not doing the direct stuff. I guess so Maybe there's a question here as to what your favorite girls don't God said again, Doug. There it is. Girl Scout Cookie is what about it? Thin mints so well, how many of you that do know J? How many different flavors there are. I don't know what that I like the lemon ones, and I can't even remember And I feel like all the flavors When I was a girl scout, they were called one thing. And now they're changed not peppermint Patties, peanut butter Patties, and then they became tactics. They have something else now. Yes, well, they've had Samoas. Those were my favorite. They've had them forever. The thin mints, of course, are also really popular. The I think they have, like a snicker Doodle and then I think. Last year they introduced the new lemon shortbread one That was there's a new flavor, and I thought it was maybe lemon from last year. Yes, it was. That's right. You're right. Yeah, I think it's so You can order them online because, like, I don't know any girl scouts, so I would order them online and support the organization. But if you don't know a kid who's a girl scout, or if you're not working in an office environment, you usually the dad is like all right, everybody, my daughter selling cookies, not in the office. You know if you don't know someone you know who has connections to girl scouts. I think it's all right. So, Jamie, why don't you post this Some always thin mints petered butter Patties. Thanks a lot.

If you find them, let me know For those of you who have no Clue. Holly Quick making intro Red Light green Light Red Light green light. This is a segment we're calling and Bradley play Hollywood executives and get to decide whether an upcoming project gets the red light or gets the green light. Greenlee playing in Hollywood for its ago, it's ago, kid go. Here's what we must ponder today in our Metaphorical. Producer director Room Green later room. Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem. Playing Lucille Ball and Desi are nez. With Aaron Sorkin, directing something called Being the Ricardos for Amazon Studios. Okay, so you're probably wondering what this is. But this story came out yesterday that Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem are in negotiations to play Lucy and Desi for Amazon on Aaron Sorkin in something called Being The Ricardos, which is Apparently a film about the relationship between Lucy and Desi. And it was written, I guess, by Ah Having penned this free. Oh, so he wrote it as well. It sounds like directed to Yes, so he's not only going to direct it, but he wrote this script as well. And it will be, of course, produced for Amazon studios and something called Escape artist. So That's how we know I know a little bit more. But what is your gut reaction? Holly as a mover and shaker in Hollywood, A to least that's the role you're playing right now. How does this News strike you? Oh, well, it strikes me like a big table. Spoon of Vita Vita Regiment. Cute. I see what you did. Yeah. Yeah, meaning it doesn't really taste very good. So it's full of alcohol. Yeah, it's full of alcohol. So this project, you know, a couple other details about this. Being the Ricardos or what is it? Yeah, I want to get a being The Ricardos. It's going to take place during the production of I love Lucy. A week in the life a slice of life, so the project is purportedly gonna start In the way that many weeks on a sitcom do with the table read on Monday and then ending on Friday afternoon or evening with the taping before live studio audience and so within that construct Aaron Sorkin wants to tell the story of the relationship between Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz and it also in just the tiny bit, we know, says that this film will take place as Lucy and Desi face a crisis that could end their careers and another that could end their marriage. Don't ON top on. I've been to that Paramount studio where this all took place because I think it's now technically right next to where Dr Phil Um Films. His program. Yeah, my office at Paramount Studios was right across from the place that was supposed to be a recreation of Lucille Ball's hometown Square. See, it was a daycare, which, by the way, that hometown Square also shows up in such tv shows as the Brady Bunch, etcetera anyway, so Okay? My gut reaction to if we're playing Hollywood producers, If if somebody's trying to make this pitch to me with the names Nicole Kidman Javier Bardem attached, I know instantly what they're trying to do. Is get some sort of Ward, probably an Academy Award, if not all the others. You mean they're not trying to get a cable Ace Award? Bradley exactly with this. It just sounds very much like catnip for the Academy Awards because it is. It involves two a list Hollywood actors. Playing the rules of a plus a list Hollywood celebrities and we all know That the academy loves loves an impersonation film They love Ah bio pic, and they love to award Academy Awards to the people who play The famous people in these bio pic. So, like I understand what's going on here. But if I'm playing producer I'm not so sure. Because I don't. I don't see Nicole Kidman is Lucille Ball now that could be my own bias. We can talk about that. But Holly. A lot of people have seen not Nicole Kidman but in response to the story. Debra Messing. In the role of Lucille Ball, and I'm not so sure you're so sure that that's a good idea either. Am I right? You're totally right. So Back step a little bit on this project. It was Cate Blanchett, who was first in negotiations to play Lucille Ball in this Movie being the Ricardos. So we heard about this. Oh, gosh, months ago. I don't know whatever time in space, right? But, you know speaking Bradley to the point that this would be a ward click bait, so to speak. You're going with Cate Blanchett. She has fulfilled all the criteria. Cape Blanche. It won an Academy Award. For playing Katharine Hepburn in the movie The Aviator, So she's already kind of fulfilled that promise, and she's proven that she can play Hollywood icons and she could really get into the role now. People had a lot of gut reactions to Nicole Kidman being cast as Lucille Ball allegedly mainly being like Girl. You don't look like Lucille Ball at all. Like what? What are you trying to do? So then? People's brains went to Debra Messing. Who didn't I love Lucy tribute on a recent episode of Will and Grace. She had the comedic timing. She had the look of Lucy down, So a lot of people are like, Well, why did you that cast Debra Messing in this role? It totally makes sense. I don't think that that would be a good idea. No, and you can see that if producers are going for an a list name, Debra Messing is probably not at the top of that list. Right. Like you don't like I can see a movie producer. Be like You're not gonna get it butts in seats for Debra Messing, but you get him for Nicole Kidman. That's right. We get the financing, right? Like you can see that. That formula that you know that logic. But just from like, I'm sitting in a seat watching a film. I feel like there is an actress out there who would just kill this role, and I don't think it's Nicole Kidman and it's probably because I just have a I find Nicole Kidman to be terribly distracting in in movies and TV shows, so well, um Like In fact, the last thing I can think of that I enjoyed Nicole Kidman in was a movie. Called the hours Okay? That was 20 years ago. Exactly. Did you watch though Thea undoing I did not on HBO. So she That's the most recent role. I've seen Nicole Kidman in and I was distracted by her the entire time. Because I felt like Just find there to be something artificial about the way she is acting and I don't know what that means. And I haven't really thought too much about it. But I find I found myself terribly distracted by Um Her like It took me out of the movie constantly to think about her. And I don't know why, um But I just I'm not sure I see it. That's just my gut reaction. I would be very cautious. I also think you know is somebody who's obsessed mildly, and has been throughout the years with the story of you know, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Like a lot of people, right, like growing up when I did you know, I had a fascination with Lucy. Of course, because it was just a part of my consciousness from a very early age. Thanks to reruns, Um And and also, you know, I've read her autobiography, training The Dolphin was her autobiography. I'm assuming it was actually a biography. Now that I think about it, but anyway, feeling like, I've I know a little bit about her. I just I don't know. I just don't feel it. Well, that's the thing When people were like, Don't do Nicole Kidman in this role have Debra Messing, but Debra Messing. Didn't impersonation..

"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.
