"To start with some sad news and that is the James Lipton passed away so so the age of ninety three and he was dealing with cancer but he passed away peacefully this morning at his New York City home you know he of course was the host of inside the actors studio who's a veteran TV writer and had a storied career in and around to television and film in inside the actor's studio he would interview actor is big and small to kind of pick their brains about the craft so it was really perspective that you would get on these stars well I loved it because just as a regular layperson yes was not an actor it still was so fascinating to hear them talk about their craft and how much they how much work they really put into developing character and the list of people that he interviewed on that show I mean every single star I I could I mean Ben Affleck Halle berry Jeff bridges Morgan Freeman Gwyneth Paltrow Brad Pitt I mean it Henry Winkler yes on and had such a wonderful style of interviewing like yeah would get out of the way of the interview and you know that really allows the person you're being that you're interviewing to you know sort of occupy the space which ultimately is why you showed up it's so true and it was in front of a live audience of student actors on the show still on by the way just with other house besides James Lipton he retired in twenty eighteen after twenty two seasons he started the show in nineteen ninety four some of the students would get to ask questions from time to time and I think when I think that was what was so unique about the concept of what continues is that these interviewers are coming at it from a perspective of what can the what kind of gems of knowledge or advice can you give to the students right so then you have just you're coming from such a pure place when that's where that's the place that you're coming from to ask the question also puts the those celebrity in a place where they are thinking about their answers differently yes right so they open up in a way but it but they know it's to serve somebody else for sure he said to TMZ when asked has anybody ever turn and you down to be on inside the actors studio and now well everybody would do I think that is that is the interview you do because that's not gonna end up looking like a a double last not going to end up you know yeah blubbering like you do with yeah raft it's

"End that prompts Marcus to find a local guy who can drive him up to an area where he tried to get a shot? He's really out for blood. Now because he's so angry at foster's tanner and he's told it's going to be an impossible shot. It's GONNA be five hundred yards away. He says I don't care let's go do it and as they get up there the character says Joe you're winded and it's not even your gun let me take the shot and he says not on your life he's mine with that jaw jutted out and that grizzled grumble of his that we get from bridges in this fell and right before he takes the shot. We get that deep breath the intense focus. But there's even a sense of pain in that pause where it's almost like. He wishes. None of this was happening. He so angry though and he's so eager to shoot but you get the sense that he could break down. Any second is if the whole weight of all of this senselessness is there on bridges face and when it cuts to foster. This is where that mythic sense comes in again. He's looking looking at everyone down below him. He thinks he's safe up here in the hills and he says Lord of the planes. That's me and that's exactly the moment where he gets shot and I'll let our listeners. Takeover a couple listeners on our facebook page talked about this moment the beats that happened after he fires the kill. Shot Zac Santo. Chief says his reaction action to the end of the shootout at the climax of hell or high water is playing like three emotions at once relief. Joy and sorrow through a haze of mental and physical exhaustion. And it's a fantastic moment. Tom Curran shape. Powell goes even further with those combinations of emotions. He says when he kills Ben Foster's character after his partner is killed. His reaction is incredible. Incredible mix of victory sadness. Justice relief exhaustion frustration. Regret all at once. It's incredible. It really is incredible. It's all those things and there's even a little a bit of humor the guy who's next to him who said he probably couldn't do it. He turns to him and gives him a look. Like you doubted me. And then he slaps him a couple of times playfully letting out a chuckle. And it's that chuckle then just immediately kinda shifts into this really plaintive cry and just within a few beats as I said he hits every one of those notes that our listeners describe it's really a Bravura Jeff bridges moment yeah. It was an honorable mention for you mentioned the You know how he just kind of wheezes and I love how halls around his heft in this move. Yeah definitely makes it part of the character. The other scene thought about four from hell or high water water is that hotel room theological debate. It's prompted by this television evangelist that he has with his partner Gilman Ham. Who you mentioned there? Dynamic is another another example of him playing off and listening to a Co Star for sure key to that film. So does this mean as we get to our number one's Rogin the end as we should with the dude are we. Were having the dude. You Dude deserves some credit as listeners. Know the dude is in the Pantheon. It hasn't really should not be eligible for this list there. He's another rule breaker though. This is not NAM. There are rules and one of the rules. We break on this. This show is when we're doing a retrospective on a career We do let those Pantheon. Choices factor in and really. How can you not talk about the big Lebowski the basket when you talk about Jeff Bridges so the Dude is interesting because he's bridges most popular and beloved character but in my paradigm at at least this man of ease who must be diseased? He's probably the one grocer changes the least in response to having that sense of self shaken up so there's no cathartic character arc that some of his other ones do where they come to learn something more about themselves and find a place of real comfort. The Dude is just the dude now. Just about every moment in this movie with bridges is a gem but I had to pick the one that I think gets at the heart of the dudes persona and it's a speech. He gives maybe not a speech speech but something he says to the movies other Lebowski so this is the wealthy husband of the missing woman. Are you employ. Mister Lebowski. Let slid explain something to you. I am not Mister Lebowski your Mister Lebowski. I'm the dude. So that's what you call me. You know that dude. NECE or dude or L. DUE TO RENO if you're not into the whole brevity thing are you employed employing you don't go out looking for a job dressed like that do you. On a week day is this. What does this do Werchter? I love how when he asks. What Day is this? He turns around for like legit help like he really needs help. From the Big Lebowski. Excuse assistant who played of course by Philip Seymour Hoffman. There's also the way he sits in the chair here slouched his legs casually crossed. He's completely wheatley out of place in this mansion. Right wearing his undershirt in his hoodie but he sits there as if he's in his lounger at home and the Coen brothers delivered. The dialogue of course is but the way bridges just lets the dudes logic roll out so laconically. It's as if him being the dude makes so much much sense in the scheme of the universe that he doesn't even have to really be awake to argue in its favor it's like I. I could just explain this in my sleep. Because it's it's so logical off so the dude may be more at ease with himself than any other bridges character the fact that he isn't moved to question that change that identity does that mean the movie things he doesn't he doesn't really have to. I'm going to say yes do guides to bide so I mean that's the answer right right. I love the dude. Yeah it's a fantastic choice. I don't think that we are going to surprise anyone with our picks from the big Lebowski. It's either that scene. I think or another famous explanation scene between between him and Philip Seymour Hoffman the assistant and the real big Lebowski played by David Huddleston at its when he gets thrown into the Limo and has due account for the fact that the money it seems was never delivered. I've got certain information or certain things have come to light and you know. Has It ever occurred to you that instead of running around blaming me you know given the nature of this news you know this could be a lot more complex. I mean it's not just it might not be such a simple You know what is God's holy name are you blathering about. I'll tell you what I'm blathering about. I've got information man new. Just come to light and man. She kidnapped herself. This is truly one of those like you're seeing where what explanation they should you need besides just playing read all say that what I love is the way somehow bridges. Maybe the greatest feat of acting the greatest physical part of the scene is is that he gets thrown into the limousine pretty abruptly doesn't spill the Russian. No He keeps it totally upright. I don't think a drop spills anywhere priorities. That's it. You're right that kind of stream of consciousness. The logic of it. He knows that he's making some things up. He knows that there are some elements here that he is. BSN thing but it truly is if he believes at its core. That what he's saying is fundamentally true and they just need to listen to him and understand it. She kidnapped herself man. I do love that stream of consciousness element to it that the Cohn brothers in their editing. Really play a perfectly. It's not one long take but they get a few view. Different kind of long bridges shots were the camera just stays on him. It will occasionally cutback to Hoffman Huddleston. But otherwise you feel like he's just putting putting himself out there and kind of hanging himself out to dry because that's all they can do is talk and they're giving him no response really no relief that they're buying any of it and and you're just watching bridges at his best in terms of the rhythm. I talked about the rhythm of the editing that I think is so perfect but it really is bridges as well and that's especially true when you think about the fact that it was supposedly all on the page. A lot of people think bridges talked about this that a lot of people assume because because the style of the delivery especially in this scene but throughout the whole film that there must have been a lot of Improv and they just gave him free rein to kind of go off but no of course. It's the coan rights. Brian Bridges every man every Sure it was all there. It was all on the page and he would go back and reference them and count them and make sure he was delivering and the fact that he did that. The fact that you can deliver something that seems that genuinely improvised seems that off the cuff but actually is delivering everything. That's on the page. Perfectly is really a technical marvel in and of itself. That's where the physicality comes in where he matches his gestures and his posture Yes to what's on the page. I think it's also the musicality I think if you watch a movie like the Fabulous Baker Boys and you watch crazy heart. Obviously where. He's actually playing the guitar and performing those songs. He's actually playing the piano in the fabulous Baker Boys. He is known as someone who's a musician and this scene really has that kind of flow the ability to just tap APP incompletely to the dudes rhythm and it's his own unique rhythm and that's what makes the big Lebowski such a unique pleasure so those are our top hop five jeff bridges scenes. We'd love to hear your picks or any other thoughts about the show. You can email US feedback at film. Spotting Dot net josh. Do you have any honorable. Mentions that we haven't touched on. Well I did just want to throw in the last picture show. I know you brought it up but I do like that quite a bit. As well and heard from a listener Barrett girled at beardie Baretta on twitter. WHO said the last picture show has to get some love? He has so many good scenes he plays Dwayne so cocksure and naive. And I think yeah. There's that Combo there of you. You know an unearned confidence. Maybe in that character so I definitely considered the last picture show and also. Here's a film that hasn't come up yet. The door on the floor. Jeffrey a free web on facebook said pointed out his monologue about the car wreck in that movie. That's a two thousand four domestic drama. He and Kim Basinger both very good in that movie. So just want to throw out that one as well. Yeah going back to the last picture show. Unauthorized cinnamon is the name on. Twitter pointed out the motel helsing. And it's one I thought about. This is the scene was cybill shepherd where she is supposed to be losing her virginity to Jeff Bridges Dwayne and that is the one moment. Where are we see that whole confident outer persona completely melt basically yeah? He fails there in that scene in. It's another the one. That's really all on bridges face and happening in his is the only other one that hasn't come up otherwise for me. There are obviously lots of others. I think about the contender there. There are a few scenes with him as the president there with Joan Allen. His scene with Shelley Runyon Gary Oldman where they're on a boat is a pretty good scene where he's setting him up for a fall fall. There is a scene on the lawn between him and Alan and of course he's got a big speech if only we lived in a world where politicians could make impassioned speeches speeches of conviction and they made any difference Josh. I'd like to. I'd like to believe that these days bridges almost makes me believe that. It's still the truth. And I'll all thrown in again even though it did come up in our starman discussion earlier in the show Dutch Apple Pie. It's terrific that's the one if I'm actually putting together. My real of Jeff Bridges it is all time great moments either starts or ends with that. After the fork fumbling though after start started out the fork affirm Romo again. Those are our top five.

"That's and then we dance. Movie Dot Com. I mentioned that it's GonNa hit Chicago and other cities on the fourteenth those other cities these include L. A. in Seattle along with Chicago. DC in San Francisco on the twenty and a bunch more on the twenty eighth Portland San Diego Philly Baltimore early March. He'll get to Boston. Atlanta Minneapolis and more. We have listeners all over those cities so please keep an eye out for and then we danced. Hello Adam and Josh Sean. This is Henrik Hanssen calling from y'all Ding and can't I love Jeff Bridges. I'm hoping that some of his eighty movies get love like kiss me goodbye or Tucker man and his dream or jagged edge. But I've gotTA pump for the first emcee you villain over Diet Stone from I on man and yes I know in the third act it just becomes Rockland sock them robots but leading up to that. There's just such richness to his ability and no scene is better than the one where he was all the rage out on. Poor Peter Billingsley. Who was the kid and Christmas? The story actually when he tells them that. Tony Stark built this in a cave scraps. The scene is so good that they brought it back in Spiderman far from home and I was pleased to see it again. Thank you all very much of the show. We get to our top five jeff bridges his scenes now great stuff from Henrik Hanssen couple and odds to other jeff bridges performances including Tucker. Yes even kiss me goodbye and jagged edge with Glenn close those are movies that otherwise aren't gonNA come up on our less. I'm pretty sure and I don't think we're going to give any space to ironman either. Even though based on listener feedback Josh. We probably should have one of the most common responses from listeners. At least on twitter people saying Ovadia stone and that line I I guess it does speak to the quality of the MC you but that is a great moment even if I'm a little sour on that closing third that Henrik mention there's there's something fun about seeing bridges. Someone like bridges not only in a property like that. Yeah but really chewing his moment so I get it. I can see why people thought of it. But yeah wasn't wasn't in contention for my list. Okay no ironman on our list. Otherwise what did make your top five bridges scenes. Well I WANNA go back a little bit to what I was talking about in our star man review the sense of ease. He's that I feel like defines bridges and he has You know the presence he has in. You amended that a little bit which I wanted to follow. I think you are correct. Correct in that. What's interesting about bridges and his best character? Start there and then that eases disrupted okay and this is the crucial story that the character is gonNA find themselves in. It's either disrupted or it's shown to be falsely held or undeserved and then the character's journey starts there so we follow him from this point of just just being completely comfortable in his skin And sometimes these are characters we liken sometimes their characters we loathe and then scene where he goes from there So not all my picks have to do with that but it was a through line through many of them at number five. I am going with a scene from fearless and this is crashing the car so fearless from the Great Peter. We're the Australian director who also made dead poet's society and the Truman show. This is based on a novel by Raphael eglesias Bridges Stars as Max Klein architect. WHO's on a commercial flight? That goes down and during the crash. Klein has has max has this sort of its like a Zen cowl net comes over him. He starts comforting other passengers Then he comes away from this accident unscathed. Even though most most of the other passengers are killed or severely injured and in light of that he sort of believes that he's this invincible Guardian Angel. He Wanders about tempting fate walking looking into traffic tip toeing at the edge of of rooftops and he meets up with a few other fellow survivors and they debate their place in the universe and the existence of God. Now one of those I fellow survivors is Carla played by Rosie Perez and she's absolutely bereft because she was holding her infant son at the time of the crash in the impact caused her to lose her grip on him so my bridges seen from fearless involves the two of them. It's also one. That listener faith highlighted on twitter as well. She's at Glam watches. Che's at one point Karla Max car. Together she's hyperventilating just overcome again with with grief and guilt having a breakdown and Max has this maniacally inspired idea to demonstrate her. There's no way she could have maintained grip in that situation. His experiment have her hold this toolbox in her lap while he drives lives about forty miles per hour directly into a concrete wall. Spray to save your baby doc hold on your baby it. I love the scene because I don't really know how to feel about it or how to feel about bridges in it he again. Has that Zan unclarity in this this moment where he's just like this is what needs to happen. he's a higher he is so sure of himself But there there. Is that hint of mania. That's disturbing too and I like the skepticism to the call to prayer you here in that scene. It plays off of Carla's Catholicism. And this general spiritual undercurrent that's going throughout the entire film. I think bridge is one of the few actors who can hit all those conflicting notes. And this is what you were getting out when you're talking about starman still you'll have you on his side yeah right so And you know the that beat perfect use of youtube where the streets have. No name doesn't hurt. You know what. That's the one element of that scene. The I couldn't get past. You don't like it. I don't belong that song and I have to admit that watching it this weekend. It took me completely out of the scene thinking about about how it felt like. It was something that I would hear in a completely different film. Certainly a completely different moment. Not One is intense sense and borderline traumatic. Is that scene. I think it's the the thing with that sort of on so well known. Yeah bringing in a lot out of context and other associations but for me it's the propulsed -ness of it and and the key the guitar revving up as the car engine does and I was wondering wondering how they were going to end the music because the point in the song is like your way from the ending when they hit the wall but it does is kind of use a drum crash to work perfectly so yeah I thought it was a good element to it all right. Well I'm going to break all the rules here. I'm going to be like Jeff Bridges a rule breaker and I Going to go to my number four because it's just too good of a follow up to your over five and it's also from fearless. It's from one of the few scenes that come after this big crash scene that you just described and if I'm being totally honest it's not a moment where seen that is going to end up on his his lifetime. Achievement real that we will certainly all watch some day. It's just not maybe that big enough. It's not enough of a standout moment from his entire career but for me it's the most powerful moment in fearless and it's really all because of a single line reading by bridges and it's actually a single word. He's now in the hospital. And if you haven't seen fearless and don't want any spoilers at all then you probably shouldn't listen to this. But this is basically the end of the film the penultimate scene. Actually where now. He's in the hospital hospital recovering from his injuries. That were suffered in the accident. You talked about and Carla comes to visit him. And Basically Carla is there to say we need to stop having this relationship. Whatever this relationship is it's going to be better for him? And maybe for her if they go their separate ways and she tells him that you can't save everybody. You gotta try taking care of yourself. Say Goodbye Max. And of course he says goodbye. Why what do we have to say? Goodbye she says it has to be that way he says I don't WanNa say goodbye and her line is just just say it like it means nothing and this whole the movie and you just talked about one of the key scenes has been about the force and the power of simulated ACS dying in a plane crash coming to terms with your death and then you didn't actually die. You survived reenacting a crash scene while holding your baby except it's not your baby you're holding the idea that genuine catharsis income from for lack of a better word. These artificial moments and Max is always been the one who got that and now he's the one who has to understand it Carlos Kinda in a flip the tables a little bit and he knows that she's saying goodbye forever. He clearly doesn't want that and I kind of assumed in that moment that we were going to get from him what she she wants a goodbye to appease her but ultimately a woeful one and instead he performs perfectly he gives her a goodbye. That's like nick. Goodbye Carla. It's it's really just like that only much better because it's Jeff Bridges. It's a good by like you're hanging up the phone a friend who you know you're going to see in an hour or two and something about him being willing to play that game and to go through that moment even though it was fake I thought was quite profound rather than denying her her because it went against his feelings he did truly say it as if it meant nothing and this idea that you can maybe trick your brain in to closure is powerful powerful and it was certainly a powerful moment for me between these two characters. Yeah that that entire relationship with those two is just fascinating the different dynamics and it's unlike almost any other movie relationship you've seen man woman just has a lot of permutations to it and it's one of the strengths of the film for all right. My number four comes from the the Fisher King. And I'll just call it reacting to horrible news. I'm GonNa let Listener Marius vibe on twitter. He's at Zan man seventy five Set it up here. He says I remember the first time. Bridges really got to me. It's in the Fisher King. The scene when he realizes that what he said and did a terrible tragedy and that his life will never be the same again. Great performance from great actor integrate movie. I agree with Maria on all three counts. I love the Fisher King. It's one of Terry Gilliam's more reality based pictures pictures. I think and Bridges Plays Shock Jock here Jack. Lucas who's inflammatory. Comments are cited as inspiration by a mass shooter who has opened fire. You're on people in a restaurant before killing himself. Lucas learns of this while. The news is on television news. But it's how he learns it that is so revealing of his his character So Lucas's here's a bridges type. That's completely comfortable with himself right. He's so sure of his place in the world is the shock. JOCK and He's proud route of himself who he's become so he enters the room of his apartment. He comes into the room. Because here's the sound of his own voice on the television so it's like a siren moment. Only he's slowly himself into the room And we see Lucas face as he's watching his own face on the television screen and there's this sense of triumph on it You know yes I I should be talked about. It's a free press element but also like this is how important I am. Then the newscasts which is to report on the massacre and it begins to dawn on Lucas. What's happening bridges reacts without a word? Here it's all in the face.

On XBox playing on PC. Now, I start to think like, maybe I shouldn't be but. I'm sure the progress probably carryover now, I believe it does. I cross play as far as I know. I think maybe one day.

Game that I feel like if I spend enough time with it. I might want to just give them some money because you know, I've been that way with free to play games. I've actually really liked is that a certain point if you like, okay. You know, what a little money goes in that direction. Because I've literally spent like thirty hours playing this thing, I wonder is that the new business models is like the tip jar. I mean, kind of I mean, we live in the gig economy. Right. I know, but it yeah. I've that was the first thing I think of now's like how's this gonna make money? That's that's not a don't worry. I mean, I'm not worried about it fortnight is making its money. They'll find a way also found many interesting ways to not make money on things that they probably should. So it's still pretty early for this game. I wouldn't be surprised if some kind of it's not already. I haven't really followed this too much a kind of dropped very quickly it did. But I'm sure they'll have kind of pass and some kind of you know, things you yet. But a because medic and kind of a lot of people admire the fortnight model. Sure what they're doing in terms of. Hey, pay us this amount up front, and then as you get points or fees things, and you can buy more v box. I'm sure they'll be something similar.

They have a foot in the battle royale door. They've already got up hope of a pretty sizable player based on every platform and sounds like so impressive. Yeah. My only question about this is the timing of it. All. They dropped this right before anthem is coming out in granted. They are not the same game. But like, no, you're right. They are to sort of big tent poli kinda shooter type games and won an anthem has just gone through a very public beta that people did not love. So to be more specific they dropped it. Right. After that beta and the kind of feedback loop stopped, and then they drop this but anthem is only two weeks away. It's two weeks away. And it's a sixty dollar product with a monthly fee. Yeah. The there's a monthly fee for that game for anthem for Anthony. I need to look that up. I had this conversation. Talk and rice swear to God. I read that game had monthly the first I'm here in the one hundred percent wrong. If I am I'm sorry. But I swear to God I had that conversation with someone recently.

You did ironman your icon from the big lebowski this movie's gonna do well, it's or other stuff out there. You haven't done that. The try. He's a couple of things, you know. And I've been trying to work together for about thirty years now. We have such a great time on the big without. I'm not big little boy, Baker boys. Yeah, but we've got something in the in the kit bag here we might be able to pull off pretty soon. I've been trying to get this going for about twenty years, but we we might get that going and you really can't see over that horizon was coming man. You know, you don't strike me as a guy who has set and planned out his career. At this point. I want to be here this one take it as it comes pretty much pretty much kind of, you know, counterpuncher you know, get things coming to me and. You know, try to as Jaswant saying, try to, you know, pass by as many as I can, and then everyone's awhile one on this. Get me off the the movie is awesome. People are going to love it. Thank you so much, so so things yet. It's great. And you know what I would love to talk about, of course is I've got another film coming out. Yes. Yes. Called living in the futures past. Okay. And that's all about climate change? Sure. And the title of that movie living in the futures past is really a metaphor for tuning into what's already already. Here. We are living in the futures past right now and we, it's a film about well about all of us in about our rapidly changing world. And you know, we face big challenges is a species here on our planet, and but we also have keys on how to. Address these challenges in a wise fashion. And that's really what the the movies about is taking a look at how do we move with these keys that we already know and you know, move into the future wisely doing that. You really takes kind of the long view which is both forward and back. So our movie explorers of evolution. Why are we responding to these challenges the way we are? And I'm, I'm really glad really proud of that film. I think it's it's really good one with all the the scientific consensus about climate change that is happening, and the data shows that the temperature rising. Why do you think it's so hard for that issue? Despite the best efforts of so many people, including big stars, who advocate you to punch through in the American consciousness and say, this is an emergency? Yeah. Well, it's kind of how we're wired, you know, we are. We don't have that farsighted thing and it's tough. We, we love immediate gratification. We really. Had been. I know I am addicted to comfort, you know? So anything that's a little bit different. We we, we resist that, you know, oddly enough after we made the film, I experienced some climate change myself as you probably know California's been particularly crispy this year. Well, fine over and in Santa Barbara, we had a huge wildfire and we had just. Perfected this home that we had been working on for three years and moved in there for a couple of months. The fire didn't get us, but the fire burned all the growth on the mountains. And here comes a big rain. And here comes the money. Terrible debris flow. Wiped our house out, killed over twenty people. We got rescued by helicopter. Did you really have that kind of brings the whole climate change thing? I guess. So I, I was originally inspired, you know, my dad with sea hunt..

I mean, you never could have imagined when you're shooting this film, what it would be in continue to grow year after year into this cult heroic status when she first came out, I was surprised that it wasn't a hit really kind of nothing. You know when it came, people forget and then they've guns a hit bigger in Europe and then splash back on the side of the pond and kind of took off. But now they got the lebowski fest. Things, and it's it's just wonderful that it can continues on like that. People love it so much. I certainly do how do you account for the way people love the dude. Well, it's that whole story. You know, the Coen brothers, their masters, they really are, and they, they know how to how to write a movie and how to direct it and make it look easy. You know. So I think it's the whole whole package out whole story and how the dude kind of fits in there. He's very much himself, you know, the dude, a lot of people they say to me, well, the dude always to he goes through life, so. But when you look at the movie, he's always upset. Ps. He's never dude. Like is always very unto that people who know you have said previously, that there is a little bit of Jeff in the dude. Sure. All my character start. Yeah. And you've said maybe the Coen brothers were watching you or had put a tail on you and your young man to inform you in there. In there. Yeah. So what part of the dude belongs to you will you know smoking Reefer and that kind of stuff. You know. You know, all those most of the clothes that well, not most, but I'd say fifty percent of the close the dude, where's came out of my cloud, true sweater.

This hemsworth. Cast. Do you feel on a movie set like that where there's clearly reverence from the other actors for you? Do you feel like the leader of that cast? I mean, they say it out loud. We did the movie. Leader, kind of, you know, the the senior fest, Bo. It's fine. It's been an amazing journey for you as a as a movie star, and I was thinking about your career and looking at how young you got it in the movies. I think two months old. When you were first movie, was there ever a chance Jeff that you were not going to be in show business. Well, it was up to my dad. No, he was up to my just edging me that way. Unlike a lot of people in show bizz the both. He and my mom wanted all their kids to go into show biz my dad loved it so much and my my dad had a series of the sixties called Seon right, and him coming up to me and say, hey, you wanna comply with dad, you know, get out of school and. So he got where he lured me in and you know, I got bit by it. I'm kind of hooked. You know, I'm a, I'm a, you know, a product of nepotism really get down. We've made the most of it.

Pullman he encourages into. And how did your mom feel about you being show? Loved it? Man. She's probably the best actress of the bunch. You know, after the bunch she was wonderful. So you got into it at a pretty early age and then in your I, I would think not. I move with your first big role. The last picture show you get nominated for an Oscar at twenty two years old. What was it like to be thrust into the spotlight. So while. Getting that call about three, three or four in the morning, you've been nominated a free mcadams. You know, in those days, there was no campaign or anything. You know it was just kind of out of the blue. I was just blown away. Wonder if did it make you nervous that all of a sudden I'm going to be in the spotlight. I'm going to be this kind of star that people look at all. I didn't. I didn't. My nerves didn't go that far future. They just kind of went in, you know. You know, I'm I'm basically nervous. I'm kind of nervous now, man, I'm nervous now. Oh, yeah. Are you a little nervous? You have no nerves you perfectly calm. Now will your you make me come because you have to say. People, but I've never seen it. So it's all an act. Yeah. Interesting. You know. Our movie. There's a lot about that. You know, people aren't what they say, but none of us are really well. We embar we. I mean, there's an undercurrent. No question about it. So when you act, is that hiding something that you have underneath it personally? Do you have those nerves on a movie set? For example, I usually have them just before it happens just before they say, you know, before we, you know it was like e. You wanna you wanna do Justice to the material. You know, you wanna.

But in this movie, there are so many surprises that leak in that one that I'm not really a priest dense. Okay, nobody is what they see me as one. How does it make you feel Jeff when you hear people like Jon Hamm in other members of your casts? Say, when I heard Jeff was involved, I was what does that mean to you? That means a lot. This wonderful. You know that you know, that's the most fun part of the biz is the people that you get to work with, you know, and this film is just chalk filled with wonderful actors. You know, it's, that's the joy of it plan with the guys bit movie, as we said, has a look to it. It has a feeling I'd say from the opening scene. A lot in the sign and the place, and it's how do you describe the atmosphere. Well. You know, every once in a while, I'll see a movie that just kind of shakes my whole idea of what a movie is, you know, like two thousand one. Do you remember seeing that. Still gonna wonder. It was just wonderful experience being there, you know. And I think like blue velvet was another movie like that's my care Tito's early nervy Zhou. And this one is kind of like that. The director and the writer drew Goddard. He, he has a certain kind of a style in a rhythm that the audience you the sooner you get hip to what he's doing and get with his rhythm. I think the more enjoyable the film is, but if it is an actor, it was wonderful. One of the things that's unusual about the film in the shooting of it is that we had long scenes that would go on for, you know, Ken minutes sometimes almost like a play, and that was wonderful as an actor and then you know, to get all that coordinated with the with shameless our our DP cinematographer and hitting all the spots. And it's like pulling. Off a magic trick. We were talking about Cynthia Ravina oh yeah. Who's extrordinary in the film revolt sees me and who I believe is the first character that father Flynn interacts with in the movie. Yeah. Tell people about her as a performer. Well, she's, she's really going to just explode this year. She's got two or three movies coming out right alongside ours and what an instrument, what a voice, one of the other great aspects of this movie that I love so much is the music and we're talking all of my favorite stuff. Motown nineteen sixty nine. That's when the movie takes place. Wonderful music around that time and Cynthia sings at all all through the movie. And we were lucky enough just to be around for take one take to hear her say, and then she was gracious enough to be a, you know, a living jukebox..

So bad times at the El royale what a cool movie. It looks good. The cast is great. I'm digging this one man every once in a while.

Shameless mcgarvy was our cinematographer and while what he came up with beautiful and our director screenwriter drew Goddard. You know, the whole team was wonderful to work. So what what about it hits you when you first got the script? Or was it the people in? No, no. When I first got the script, I read that thing about page fifteen. I would say, wow, what is going. Go back pages and say, yeah, yeah, and it just kept doing that all the way to the end giving me surprises, you know, and I'm going to the movies myself, and those are the kind of movies that I love to see when the filmmakers a little bit ahead of you. Yeah. And this is certainly one of those. Okay. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who said now, wait a minute. Going back and rewinding the movie, the way you were. Script, what kind of we we're, I'm so interested in the roles you take and you is that a conscious thing? I wanna do this kind of movie next or just a good script land like this one and you say, let's go do it. I do my best. Not to work. Okay, that's that's my because I know what that what it implies yo you're working your way from your family, your way from all the other stuff that you like to do. And one of the main things is that you're, you're kind of off the market. You know, you can't. You don't know something else is gonna come by that you're going to enjoy even more. So I do my best to not not engage, you know. But when you get a script like this. You're on board, you know, words to live by. I do my best not to work. Yeah, we should all live with you. How do you describe father, Flynn your character being in this context, or maybe some things we can't say about father Flynn without giving them you, but who is he? Well, he's.

"This is something Republicans understand way better than Democrats that real power isn't about making a scene or what makes you feel good and power? It's a lot like owning rabbits. The more you have the easier it is to get a lot more. Power begets power, Texas has very similar demographics to California. But one reason they're red and we're blue is we want every citizen to be able to vote and they don't. A federal court has ruled seven times. The Texas Republicans drew their congressional districts with racial discriminatory intent, but our federal court won't have the final say on this. That's the supreme court. They will, which is why Republicans so desperately wanna get schlitz Kavanagh confirmed. Even though he doesn't have the temperament to be a judge on American idol. Because like the rabbits, the more justices Republicans get to pick the more those justices protect unlimited campaign spending and voter suppression laws, which helps more Republicans get elected. Power begets power Trump loves to say. The system is rigged yet rig your president. He leaves out the part that it's rigged for them. The electoral college helps Republicans the fact that every state gets two senators helps Republicans. Mike Enzi of Wyoming represents two hundred and eighty. Seven thousand people come Harris represents twenty million. Why is Wyoming even a state. There's not even a river or any other kind of natural border separating it from the other square states. It's just a square. It's like they copy pasted Colorado, and then forgot to put people in. I know I've asked this before, but do we really need to decode is.

"We're, we're so tribal that because liberals want to say the environment that it's worth it to kill myself and died choking on bad air makes liberals cry. They're liberal tears, everything. Yeah. This other big story, it isn't. This is sort of voted this. Why we concentrate on one story and not the other to me. Giant story of the week was the New York Times printing. That's very very long article about Trump's origin story. He had always told us, I'm rich because my father gave me a small loan of a million dollars. That was always funny to me that he thought that was this mall, but he was off by four hundred and twelve million apparently. It was all daddy's money all along all through his life from the age of three years old. It was all daddy's money and it was fraud money. Fred Trump passed a billion dollars to his kids and should have paid five hundred fifty millions in inheritance taxes on it. That's the law paid fifty. So they cheated the government out of five hundred million dollars. Why isn't that resin that resonate with people? It was gone. Ago, and we. Surprises? Well, it in in the size of it is surprise. I don't take the Jeff's point. Listen, we've, we've always known this president as a con man, right? And so he engaged in tax planning, but he also engaged in tax fraud that was in the New York Times article delivered tax trod. I think the big takeaway from the New York Times story is what a terrible business person Donald Trump acts. Yes. The fact. What I mean by that this is a guy. This is a guy that we know was born on third base and the idiot, instead of stealing home stole second, right. This is an. How everything is father gave it to you. All right. This is an all BS obvious thing for them to us. Here he is Bill came, the working classes, screwing people. I'd right on these back owning two hundred grand a year at age three and the Democrats can't use. That's right activity. He loves the military looks incredible police. He loves the vets but not enough to pay one diamond tax. I know. Longer. They're put out of him for stealing from the government. That's where the Republican party. What are proud of him for stealing from the governments. Desisted he did. He'd beat the system. Just the way this tax cut that's running up the debt that's going to hurt them in the and we're now paying more to service the debt that we pay for Medicare. It's almost five hundred billion dollars a year. Just paying to banks who have lend us money when does when does that common man? The forgotten man that he said he was when does that guy see that this is the wizard of Oz, who's the TOTO who's going to pull back the curtain? But the media helped sell that story from the nineteen seventies. They re times themselves. He consistently were easily provable. Let's check. Does he only homes that he saying he owns? Let's see. Was he number one in his class of Warton which he was not. Let's let's actually fact check some of this and they never did they like to believe the story. I think it was Tina Brown when she ran an excerpt of her book. She's like, I knew it was bullshit, but I, I actually liked the writing. I thought it was a convincing story. And so when you do that, people then buy into the midst, don't be surprised when they they follow that species. Whole life has been constructed lie. It's a Potemkin life of something he wanted to be right, knows deep down. He doesn't have an hour to the ability to be, and he's managed to lay this incredible Pandora's scheme into the presidency of the United States. Yeah, he's still doing it right now. Whatever it is. It is an amazing spell. He's able to catch. It is a salesman of unbelievable skill. You're here and cunning and absolute ruthlessness, and I think we keep underestimating how dangerous this person is. And this phenomenon is this. This. Brings me to my final question because Mike Pence was out there today talking about China. I haven't seen Mike Pence in awhile. I don't know what. Playing though I people say this is the week Trump became president. I felt last week, whereas the week, Lindsey, Graham became vice-president edition for some, okay, but but Trump said it at the UN..

"But not trial, but there is a culture here when you give people a fair chance. And I think people felt there was an onslaught against this guy, and they reacted defensively understandably, and I look when you do talk about white men in general. I'm not saying white men don't have a lot to answer. I'm saying when you generalize that way, you telling every white man the country don't want their vote. You're telling everyone of them. You make. I know I don't think it's about that. I think it's more about high school everyone can relate to. I was an idiot in high school when I was remember when I was in grade school all school, they had this thing they used to, maybe they don't do this anymore, but it was a big threat from a teacher. This is the days when parents cited, but teachers is supposed to now when they side with their brats. But. They would say, this is going to go on your permanent record. My permanent record that was that was drinking Boone's farm in the parking lot. I wasn't never accused of sexual assault is a high school. That's the issue here. Have you telling me the best guy Republicans can nominate was cavenaugh, has it. I got a bigger problem. If that's the issue steep said, be so good. They can't ignore you. We failed that. Yes, I hate bread. Kavanagh too. Okay. Okay. Let's get to the more nuance level of it. Which vulnerable right old, very vulnerable in this all privacy's vulnerable online. The next generation that's coming up is going to be extremely vulnerable. Any politician doesn't have a dick pic flooding out there is going to be very honorable. And when we when we out this when we out people's private lives since way, we make them very vulnerable. And I think people respond to that in the right way. I don't wanna live in a culture where liberals used to say, we don't want you looking in your bedroom, and now they say, we want to know exactly what you did in your bedroom when and where. And that's not culture. I wanna live. Q.'s come first of all food and six years ago as a teenager, yes. And you should have said, you know what? I drank a lot in high school everybody and you knew remembers Aligarh. But again, the situation if we're going to get back to that, and I guess we, I guess there's no avoiding it. Okay. It is five minutes in room. We don't know what happened. Exactly. It could have on one end of it. It could have been completely premeditated. He and his evil friend Mark judge could have said, we're going to rape this girl tonight, and this is how we're going to do. We're going to get blind drunk and we're going to blah, blah blah. Or it could have been to asshole. Seventeen-year-old morons who got blind drunk, and we're that scare this Google and they jumped on her. I mean, it is a little weird that the third God, the second guy, the third person jumps on the pile. I wanna know why. Why did he jump on the pile? Was it to stop it? Was it to join it? I mean, it's a weird and then they'll wind up on the floor. This at least allows the possibility that this was an intended rape, which is. Which is why you have an investigation. That's good. No one arguing with that. I'll give it. Position, whether he was involved in gang rapes, that kind of stuff went then became absolutely open court for anybody to make any accusations. What. It didn't. None of that happened number of senators. That's ridiculous. We're never going to know the answer to this, but we should expect more of our political leaders than we expect to the principles of our highs. Yeah. We're never going to be on the phone, but why has the Republican party thrust this upon us? And and you can say, Democrats played all the antics in the world, and and I will give you that. But the higher honor would have been to withdraw Brett cavenaugh and put another Justice in without this. And the answer to.

"Times America's historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. What a great pleasure means to you. Thank you for coming on. It's great to see you. I won't burden you with all the supreme court. Talk on this show tonight, but I just want to ask because we often hear from historians that, oh, we've seen this before with congress, people have acted lousy and presidents to supreme court. I feel was always kind of on a pedestal. Is this allow or were they acting like it's before? I don't know. I think it is a low in my lifetime, which is not short. I mean the partisanship that we saw two alternate realities during the cavenaugh hearings run and the other that had nothing to do with each other. But I can go back as an historian because I've lived with guys in the past. There were lower moments. Just imagine this in the eighteen fifties. There was a congressman from South Carolina, and he came into the Senate floor and he hit the Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner over the head with a cane falls into unconsciousness. But the most important thing is in the south, he's made a hero Justice Kavanagh's been made a hero. Now they all had canes. They gave him a golden Kane, but in. The north, here's the positive thing. It mobilized the anti slavery sentiment in the north. They got stronger the Republican party, the party of Lincoln then produces ABRAHAM LINCOLN. So if we can awaken from this new low and the citizens can get active again, we can make something from this moment. I believe. Glad you out with John. It's not place. There's no choice, but to be optimistic, what's the other thing too? Just wallow in it. We can't know. We can't wallow. We. I mean. You'll get toilet paper stock the near. I don't know about that man. I've ever seen Iran HBO let it fly. Okay. Well, you know, when you said he was a hero in the south, the reminded me of the guy who heckled Obama and said, you lie, and then he was a hero in the south. Maybe this is the problem. Well. Maybe we should've let them go. Oh, no, no, no, no fact. At this point. And in this I played the south all when you're in the cities is just like anywhere else. It's really it's not a state thing. It's a city versus country thing in. That's what happened at the turn of the twentieth century, had a very similar situation to now the cities were growing. The people in the rural alleys felt cut off from the right had a lot of new inventions. The pace of life was speeding up the gilded age gap between the rich and the poor. But luckily than a leader came along, it was a lot of popular spirit. A lot of anti elitism and teddy Roosevelt came along and he was able to channel all that emotion into something he called the square deal between the rich and the poor. I mean, he was like Trump. He came in from a privileged background, but he learned empathy through politics. He learned to go to the slums and see what it was like these other people to live. So he's not like Trump? No, he's certain. No empathy is the most important characteristic and a leader, and it's it's what's missing in the current president. Somebody who could monitor a whole menu. I know. Historians and you're certainly preeminent among them. I would consider you premiss into Parry's of all love to be that you are. Thank you first among equals for you non Latin speakers. Like Zeus was free missing. Okay. So all right. So is the question, but you all seem to say, I guess you're all optimists that you know we've seen worse before, have we did we ever have a traitor president because I really do think we have a trader as a president, someone who plainly and out in the out, an open sides with them, not us attacks. Our Justice department are FBI. RCA says he agrees with Putin. I could go on with the list of things that I consider traitorous somehow his agenda and Putin's are exactly the same all the time coincidence, possibly. Did we ever have that? I'll tell you, I don't know that we need to go to that direction right now. The Muller investigation will show us whatever is going to come forth on that right now..

"Well, you know, I loved the film and I loved it. It's a departure from usual ecological documentary in that it takes this holistic approach to the environment and how it results from and how it affects every aspect of our lives as humans on this earth. Do you think that we need to stop framing the conversation in terms of us saving the planet as if it's some altruistic in endeavor, and they knowledge that, hey, we're part of this too. And if as much about saving ourselves as it is about saving the planet man, a man and it's just natural and part of nature. Well, this is very natural behavior overdoing, right? Yeah, we'll live things that were hoping for we intending to do is to make other films like this and create a creek Ulum for this. And have it taught in school all different levels of school and keep this conversation going, and you know the youth, that's what the answers these guys are going to come up with good stuff, but we got a, you know, facilitate them doing that. Yeah, it's definitely has to be a generational endeavor. Yeah. By the way, I'm dying to see your other movie. You have coming out a week after this one bad times at the Arroyo.

Resist getting involved because I know you what it means. You can't do other movies when you're doing this one for one thing. But when I read the script. I thought, oh yeah, we got one here. This could been cool. It's very different. He thinks guy go one way goes a winner now now is the hotel in that based on what was it the Cal Neva? Nope. Probably worse. Yeah, I don't know for a fact, but I think it might be. Yeah, I can't wait to see that as well in this film was fantastic. Before we go. I don't know if this is a question for Jeff bridges of the dude or maybe a little bit of both, but you are a guy who seems to really have it figured out. Do you have a handle on the secret to life? And if so, what is it. Well, I think you're in your sentence seems to have help figure seemed good to the big word gap old caps.

"There was a little bit of people kind of rooting for him to fail. Yeah, I think so. Yeah, that's too bad, but good movie. Yeah, Fisher king another great one, Robin, you feel like you had to up your funny game when you were working with them? No, I was. I was a little concerned, you know him being such a, you know, brilliant comedian that this had some serious stuff in it and I get worrying about, you know, I I had this one scene where he's supposed to be in a coma, unconscious. And I've this big monologue and I can't be frightened that he would be trying to bust my chops. But he was just the opposite. Yes, so so supportive and such a wonderful, wonderful man. What. From, and then the other side, you know, talking about the comic genius, you know. You had the director. Gilliam is much of wild kid is rob. Sometimes we'd be shooting late in early in the morning, four o'clock in the morning. Everybody's dragging. Robert would just get up plant his feet and do like ten minutes of bus. And everybody's chops around in crew. You know, and most directors would push l. k. let's get back to work. Harry egg him on and it would go on for a half hour till it. We just got into the state, you know. And then we have jus to continue the scenes. And I remember that you narrated the documentary on Terry's donkey. Hello, Don Quixote movie. What's going on. Man, he got it made. I haven't seen him ever talked to Terry in a long time, so happy that he got it made. Yeah, I'm looking forward to that one for you. Yeah, you know, thinking about you just the other day, watching the Brit Cavanaugh hearings. Got me. Thinking about the contender. I understand that you are Obama's favorite movie president right? Heard that that was very sweet. I'd like that. Yeah, yeah. No. One of my favorite lines in that was when you talk about the shark sandwich. The president can order whatever he wants to get a shark sandwich, wouldn't you. We're going to take a quick break, and then I'll return with more with Jeff bridges when we come back in just a minute..

"He's also a big philanthropist and a guy who's trying to make the world a better place which led him to produce a narrator really fascinating new documentary called living in the futures past. And today we're gonna talk about that film and how he's trying to get us to broaden our concept of the environment and climate change and understand how our energy consumption actually goes all the way back to human evolution, how it's all inter. Connected. He explains this idea that humans and societies make up what he calls a super organism that's consuming at a faster and faster rate and how maybe we can start to take some of the politics out of the climate debate and make little changes as individuals that can have this positive ripple effect. This is a deep enlightened man who's going to really make you think today folks bless, we're gonna talk a bunch about Jeff's incredible movie career what he learned from his dad Lloyd bridges and how he and his brother both screwed around with each other on fabulous Baker boys and how he and Francis Coppola basically made a student film of the movie Tucker before they even shot a foot of film. He recalls laughing it up with Robin Williams and Terry Gilliam when they were making the Fisher king and just got a million stories about making the last picture show, King Kong. Heaven's Gate the contender, true grit, and also as other new movie coming out bad times at the Elroy Al. And of course we're going to get into the big lebowski and the whole fan phenomenon that sprung up around that movie how he feels about being so identified with this. Now. Conic character, the dude and why he says, the dude is really a zen master. Plus we cover his own Buddhist philosophy and how he keeps his perspective and always seems so happy and easy going everywhere he goes, we talk it about the sort of renaissance life that he leads an all of these creative outlets he has. We've got all that and a whole lot more today when I talked to Jeff bridges coming up in just a moment..
