When you're actually ty tackling somebody bleeding on them. You Know I. Guess You keep people from catching in to begin with right I? It's not. Unlike the NBA Nhl. they're not in a bubble I think they're trying to pull off the major league baseball with full context. Yesterday. They came out and said that. What. Three hundred seventy four players that they tested yesterday, forty, three, forty, six zero cases that since something like July thirteenth in the last, basically since they showed up at the bubble. Tests. So the bubbles working so far in Orlando. So far. Anyway man, and that was the original proposal for Major. League Baseball back in the day and. About it is you know three or four months away from their families they didn't want to. They didn't want to put up three or four months away from their family without being allowed to bring their side, chicks, yeah. If? You're in a bubble and you can't gamble bang. Why even go to the bubble? Right yeah. If you do this. If you're still traveling, you can still have a little fun on the side of some NBA players who are suddenly so much better than we thought they were because they don't have the distractions, they might have durably. Stands. It gives up sex in seinfeld genius. Mind is clear for the first time in his life. It ever seen that NS beautiful. It feels to me like we're GONNA have. Two or three people like that and I think if we maybe actually paid to the NBA which I don't. We might be able to guess. Of One of those five people something. We'll see it's getting close. Let's do front page sports. It's brought to you by friends at Ryan Cossiga Criminal. On Front, page sports presented by Ryan to see criminal defense. Sauce mentioned zero positive tests that have three hundred and forty six in the bubble, for the NBA in the NBA is one week from Thursday there's two games in the season opener. If you will the season restart season opener, jazz, Pelicans, clippers and Lakers are both next Thursday, but just for perspective since we're. Nine days away, give or take from NBA Games. Spent March right since we've seen the NBA. A week from Saturday so a week and a half from now. Here's ESPN's TV schedule sweet. Noon Heat Nuggets Hawk to thirty. It sounds like what I'm gonNA. Do for lunch. Really. Assist. To thirty jazz thunder. By clock pelicans clippers seven thirty Lakers rectors from noon until ten. Straight hours of NBA. ESPN on top of that, you'll have a full major league baseball slate, and a hockey hockey starts on the first two. Crazy. And Golf. Good luck with that. Crazy that's sweet, though man good for all good for all those people good for everybody, it looks like the NFL is heavily leaning towards no preseason games back to what you just said about certified athletic trainer Eric. SUGARMAN has walk through with Peter King. And how do you keep these teams safe on the road? They're not even gonNA. Get a trial run and that's frustrating that that's why I thought the one home game. One road game made the most sense. Keep a little bit of revenue. And give every team one chance to try it out and see what it looks like on the road keeping their players as safe as possible. We're going straight to the regular season. Because if the NFL is offering no preseason games has been Lieber said yesterday. The players have no interest in playing preseason games, 'cause they don't get paid almost anything. Yeah, so. It looks like zero preseason games this year now. Normally, this is my dream. I love this yeah! This is just so weird this year that I can't believe. They went from four to zero, but with Cova Dan. The back and forth negotiations and posturing and leveraging. We got there quicker. I think down the road. We're going to be looking at two or three games a year, not four. Obviously, they're gonNA. Bump it down to three. I think he's early as next year right when the regular season games go up to seventeen preseason down to three. To be awesome moving forward, you get it down to two women. Great this. Looks like zero I think two's. The right number for this year looks like zero is going to be the number. That's meaning. Crazy. Longest. We have these games. Start on time. Who knows if the seasonal finished? But some fall football would be great. These twin season opener Friday at the White Sox, but they are at the cubs tomorrow for their loan exhibition game at six zero five. It's on the Major League Baseball Network. I assume maybe Fox sports north as well I. Haven't looked correct this. Right on. And I will say. I actually don't. Want. Anybody. Basic Stop. My guess would be homer. Bailey is. He's probably gonNA fifth person in the rotation. We have him we do. This to. One of his last name was like giver. Not The best name for Pitcher Oh. Oh, OH, right well! Senator. Terrible for pitcher. Antonio Brown on twitter yet again says he's retiring. So weird spot because the seahawks reportedly have done a deep dive, and they are kind of interested. They're intrigued, but it's the uncertainty about. Whether. The NFL IS GONNA. Suspend them for or game six games aching. They don't know how long he's going to get suspended. Whenever the NFL finally finishes there I don't know investigation. So the seahawks or at least kind of interesting, but Antonio Brown says he's done, but this is about the what I don't know third or fourth time. He said he's retiring. This is. Me It takes on the no one but somebody who craves attention. This is just no. He's paying attention to me. I'M GONNA retire. Don't do that, no one sane that, so no one cares. Okay. I mean. As, you said it's the fourth time he's done this. It just because no one. No one's listening or painting attention to the second teams like man. We lost receiver who got hurt in pass away, but we lost receiver in Training Camp Antonio. I'm in. Remember about three years ago.

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

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.

"He was very, you know, very much about the health of this in the ocean and the planet as well. So it's kind of where it started for me. What do you hope people do when they watched that film? What's the? What's the action item? Or do you just want people to be aware of it will to engage? You know, one of my heroes who Bucky fuller is buck, minister, fuller. Have you ever heard? I know the name, but he's, I've been Venter philosopher. One of his most famous inventions is the geodesic dome. Okay. You see those short short and he great observation. He said those ocean going tankers that receive out there when they were being built. The engineers found that this huge runner that would turn the vessel. It took too much energy to turn that big runner. So they came up with a very simple, brilliant idea of putting a little runner on the big router and that little red is called a trim tab. And so the trim tab turns the big rudder and the big road it turns the ship. And Bucky says, this is how the individual affects the society in in fact that we are all trimtabs. That's what Bucky has on his gravestone Colmey trimtabs always that, right? So I think people can think of themselves as trimtabs and you know, you think can just one person do well, you can align with other individuals who are thinking the same way, and you can turn the ship, put a bunch of people together. That's right who'll can't wait to check it out Ryan. Thank you. Thank you, really, really appreciate it. Great. So after we popped up from that conversation, he and I got up and did a little candle pin bowling that the real thing we're in this bar that had candle pin bowling. You know, the dude was a big bowler. So I figured let's roll a few frames and see what happens. I can tell you a big story about the. How the do prepares to bull. Terrance, lots of long story. Do you have the time? Of course. Colbert you'll be on a bowling. So we had a bowling expert to bully experts come and teach. All of us have Boll and I thought, well, you know, I asked the experts that how do you think the dude would prepare to bowl? It was a canoe, art Carney is. Oh, yeah. He would. He kind of you do a lot of a lot of special things before he gets in the right mood and. One of the one of the experts who is really the assistant to the main guy. He started to laugh. What's going on, not big like it. And he's looking at the other bullet and guys come on, tell them and say, okay, he says, well, I used to, you know, bowling's like Zimmer the art of archery. You know, the pins are either are down before you even pull your arm back here. It's all about the mindset. So to get into that my fifth, he would go, you know, five, six minutes on a big tournament. And all the guys on the bench. Finally, I said, what what happened is I had to shrink. Life and it was terrible, you know? And I said, so. So what happened? How do you do it now? He says, I throw them. Pick that up. Trump that one. The one down thing. All those. Retried this. They left town. My thanks again to Jeff bridges for great conversation.

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.

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..

We talked about you being nominated at twenty two now made several times after and then it sixty you win for best actor and you get a standing ovation in the room. What did that feel. I wish my folks would have been there because I, I consider myself sort of an extension of them, you know, not sort of I'm an extension of them. Yeah, and I wish they could have been there, but I felt him in the room. It was a wonderful moment to be acknowledged by your your peers, you know the guys who do what you do. That's that's wonderful. Do you get to the point where we say, well, at this point I'm probably not going to win the Oscar. Were you surprise when you will always surprised, you know? And you know. Sort of you happy when you don't win, because then you don't have to get up again this nerve thing. Sure. Anxiety. Oh. So you got one out of the way, and that's good. Now more than good. I love hearing the way you talk about your parents though. I mean, there's always just clear that your family was love and support, really, and my mom, she was really the, we called her the general. She ran the show brilliantly, she was wonderful. And how about with your brother Bo growing up, there's there's some stories about the tube. You tell me if they're true or false rolling into grocery store parking lot on a flatbed putting on shows for strangers. My dad like me. Was gone, you know, making movies making a living for the family and Bo, you know, who's eight years older than I am kind of raised me away, taught me how sports and all kinds of advise and also was, you know, along with my father, my acting teacher and one of the challenges for actors is where we gonna perform, where's our audience? So it was about fifteen years old and we're working on some scenes and bowhead this brilliant idea. He decided to rent a flatbed truck and we pull into a supermarket, and then our father had taught us how to fake fight stage fight. And we would put on a tussle there in front of everybody. And people thought that was real, you know, they'd go around gonna break his up. It was, you know, show jump up on the flatbed truck and we would do our scenes that we had done until the cops cave. And then we would try to incorporate the cops and some kind of improv like they were part of the show. They They were were big. big. And we said, no, we're out of here. Dr jump in.

Does it help to be zen the way you are then. Was that something separate from the marriage. You know, all this stuff helps. It's basically, you know any this love love. You know, that's the that's the deal love. As you as you may know, this is the twentieth anniversary of the big lebowski this year. One of our audio guys came in with the lebowski sweater on. Day. 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. No, that was what would be the jellies the shoes remind you know, couple of shirts, you know, up by directors like an actor who costumes themselves saves him a couple of bucks. Mary's Marysville freeze the costume designer that show she came over to my house and you know, in buddy said, let's go through my closet and just see if there's anything in then she would go crazy with a wonderful time.

He put it all together with Jon Hamm and Dakota Johnson lists, and some new people who will be introduced, I think, and stars. Yeah, Bill Pullman. That's right. Wow. He does a wonderful job. 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. Let's say it's funny because I think a lot of show biz parents would say their kids. I don't want you in show. They'll become a doctor a lawyer. Yeah. Lou blues. Dad didn't do that Bill. 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. When you want to catch the ball, that perfect pass, you know, he wouldn't catch it. As I was going down your list of credits. It struck me that perhaps the most significant of your movies, although not your best known was Rancho deluxe or a very important reason. That's the one I met my my sweet wife, sue on. So paint the picture for me. You're sitting in a hot tub somewhere in Montana. Yeah. Yeah..

"Normally, you know, I don't like trailers that kind of truncated the whole movie and give you all the good parts, you know. 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. Everything kind of comes together, you know, the style substance, wonderful cast, you know, and the sets cinematography. 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. He's a priest, not a priest. The trailer kind of gives that secret away..
