Oh she texted me now. My girl rigatoni may also be watching her though so that they're watching each other isn't that the truth chaff you know what are you feeling. What are you feeling now that we're in venice. What has been your rose in your thorn of the trip. So far we saw a week to his. Your we are freshly into this. We have a long way to go a long way. We have exactly like no. We've we've eight days right fine. Whatever semantic yeah so anyway so as heather mentioned. Well this is horrible. Pleased eliza this also please never ever tell anybody this even though this is out for public consumption please just know if you really ever want embarrassed me. Just just show up to her next show with a big sign. Kitty send a picture of a cafes better yet cat fat head and then your friend can sit right there. One of those little bubbles. Yeah next to it. And it'll say kitty quips. It's embarrassing i. Can't i just hope. My editor producer takes all of this out. I've literally have chills. I'm so embarrassed. Continue michelle to me the favourable leaving michelle. Who do you work for. actually. I work for you. I think so whatever that means. Just don't listen to the content monster. I know he thinks he's giving you hop fire content but whether or not we're going to stay married is very questionable after this year. Rose in your thorne bay. My rose is the city of venice itself. Yeah because as you mentioned before then it's it's a very bad rap for some reason. And i can't understand why i understand that is very torchy's city and that can be a nuisance in an inconvenience but it is truly beautiful and it is a hidden gem and if you know where to go yeah it is fantastic city to come to and explore also. There's so many other islands and canals have to get out and getting a boat and go see the other places like we're going to morongo burana and like a day if getting a boat after dinner saying significant on there and like smoking a cigarette and just looking into this is isn't something. That's a romantic to you. You need to reevaluate your priority. You do and maybe you're not about person. Maybe you're more of a. I mean you could be a little bit more country. Maybe like a harley davidson. Ride through the alps. Then you do you. You know what i mean. I'm not trying to judge your relationship. But for jeff and i we really love to be in a motorboat going down some sort of french waterway at fringe Week we're in italy in italian waterway. I am still reeling from kitty queens and an italian waterway with a long got pretty cigarette. You know that's just as that to me is romance. Also the highlight of the trip. Can we talk about the piano bar last night. Oh my god you know what we love. This is why i love italy. I love ambience. I don't you know. I love when you walk into a place here. The music the geyser in the white dinner jacket. You're having a bellini that to me. Says the guy works the piano bar fire. We gotta get as that these leading. Oh my god that guy is like if you see. I know men watch stepbrothers but if you know the reference. The song bird of generation This guy was absolutely fantastic. And you know so funny. These french that lot of frontier barely any american tear terrorists. Oh my god you are still reeling from and the funny part is that you brought it up how much. You're struggling skinny. We've explanation side note. I love that. I'm the american. Knows like their american. Deir ez-zor sorry tourists. There's not a lot of american tourists right now which is fantastic. A lot of french people though tons of french we met a wonderful french couple last night. Iman bernard at the restaurant. He shared his wine with us. We're having a fucking blast. Art also swind us why that is because it's an hour and a half from paris. Could you imagine being hour and a half away. No everything is so close puddle jumper over to venice for a couple of days taking a puddle. Jumper to like oh. We went to greece last week. And then we're going to morocco that we're doing this and what do we do. We go to fuck in saint louis and the that were being shot at saint. Louis though i do love saint louis. I wasn't trying to three. You guys spent a year in saint louis after college crates city. Great city saint louis. But you know what i'm saying. We make it's a five hour drive to see island from atlanta. If i want to go down to savannah it's five and a half hours to savannah to get bit by a mosquito. Have you ever tried to drive through florida. Oh you know what again. Just drive right into the everglades. Let him bite your left. Okay my point was. I don't know what was i talking about about how close it was for all these french tourists but so we're at the piano bar last night. I'm having a lemon cellos. I'm evan a sig. I have a vacation cigarette. The only time i smoke. I don't wanna any judgment. Don't fuck and send me something. For the cdc trust and believe. I already know the musician working the piano. Having a cigarette was having a cigarette. He's a white dinner jacket looking fly. Brock he's over there. Making us gasping cried. How beautiful voices as he sings. Elton john candle in the wind. Okay i didn't know where you're going to go with this. I didn't realize you were gasping and crying. I was just sitting there. He is close opened his mouth. And i almost dropped my drink. That's offering good. This guy was. I will say he really hit us with the candle moen. And i don't care what your thoughts are about the royal family princess diana to me is an icon. A dream a jammed. They did her dirty dog wrong. I've talked about this before you know my thoughts on that. You're telling me when you hear candle in the wind. Which is a song that elton john wrote for his dear friend diana you know they didn't speak for a couple of years. Things got shady. I have a feeling that this will one day be something that happens between raymond and i when i die he will end up writing a song performing a song about me in because kitty queens and he will end up singing the song and people will weep and i just had this full circle moment of you know when i murdered by the royal family and i just had that moment whereas like this is it see my future but the point i was trying to make earlier was if you wanna have a fantastic evening you take that boat over chippy on the piano bar and you listen to this gentleman just belt out. Yeah but again. My point was. The french kept requesting. There was like fifteen french people at our our hotel bar last night. They keep requesting. I'll fuck the song from stars. Board did rocket man wind. He keeps my fucking point. What is this long from. A star is worn. I'm at deepen. I've never seen it. I know it's one of those inside after watch and like a delta flight. I have to watch that movie. But i have not seen it so i can't speak on it first of all you.

"Worth. Would it was worth everything that went on. It was the funniest thing i've ever seen. You've done it before. But i don't know if it was the jet lag the fact that we'd had like two bottles of wine but something about you flexing your dick need your dick. Give the italian voice and look at your wife or spouse or whomever partner does matter. We're inclusive it is a comedic event and you will have a fantastic time giggling about it. I mean talk about low hanging fruit. This is where i'm at. I like to go. i just think life is funny. It's so fucked up but then it's also so funny. I mean i don't know we're living in paradise richly blessed. What do we have to fucking complain about. We're in europe. We have a great time together. We do have a good time together except when sports with z are involved. Summer's over yet. Okay we're trying to get through it and you know what i've got you the best pubic skin and hair products on the market.

Venus g. i. l. l. e. t. t. v. e. and us venus like the planet dot com to learn more about why these products have been flying off the shelves. Now jeff i feel like you would do a great job of breaking down our little adventures modena and i think we just gotta be real honest straightforward while we loved what we didn't love star third time to modina. And maybe can you break down for the audience. Why we go their journey. We go to modina. Because it is another hidden. Gem that has not so hidden anymore After the extensive coverage the that it's gotten yeah over the past couple of years between net flicks and all these food shows and travel shows. That modena's truly fantastic in the sense that it had some amazing world class spots to stop and any feed your face yet two of our favorites being bar schiavone which is a penny no shop that i referenced in any earlier. Instagram post. Where i said heather and i were going to induce ourselves into a coma. That was the place that we were talking about and still had every penny no on the list and didn't feel full felt light airy fresh but satiate. We didn't have every single one. That's so they usually have five. They had six this time one of them. We realize had horse in it. We didn't realize thank god our kind hostess. She understood english and translated the menu for us because at naturally was in all italian when she mentioned horse we will give each other. The look and said we said we're out on that on that one. Now here's the thing. I'm not saying this. I don't want the animal activists. All these people to come out listed everywhere else in the world does shit different. Okay so i don't wanna hear it. I don't want to hear and get you the bitching and complaining. What the animal stuff okay. Everywhere else in the world treats animals better than we do in america. You do know this right because we have like mass produced chicken cows and all that shit over here. One village shares a cow. Okay if steaks on the menu. It's because they don't have in fresh. It ain't fresh okay. Every harry dickens. John in america is got a hamburger. I don't wanna fucking here it. There are delicacies. Like flog raw. Like horse things like that were you just gotta keep your eyes and ears open for 'cause. It's not my cup of tea but bar. Schiavone is the best sandwich shop in the world. We highly recommend stopping either. Twenty four or forty eight hours in modina yes to go to bar schiavone which is attached to the central market your farmers market where literally you see all the beautiful fresh produce meats local wines. It's just a fantastic going around into seeing all the fresh stuff that goes into the meals of the region. Now also you need to go to place called a study at giusti. Which is the oldest sahlia mattia. Chef's chef's you have to make a reservation. There's only four table so you walk into this place and it looks. It's like the oldest essentially deli. Wouldn't you say it's a high end deli. yes so that's what a salutary is. Essentially a butcher shop slash delhi. This place has been there for two hundred years. And there's a damn good reason why because they will make you leaving. They're going. I wanna eat here for the rest of my life. It was the best food we had. And and i'm going to be honest with you. We stayed at this place. Called casa maria luigia and it's amazing and its own by moss mature and his wife laura and it was great and it was. That's the only place to stay. Modern is a very small town. That's the place to stay and it was great but we through that experience got to do these like berry. High end michelin star tastings one at that hotel and then at the regular austria for ghana. And i gotta be honest with you. It was amazing. Food was to die for but we were so done with doing these five. And a half hour tastings. I understand how privileged the sounds. We have been. How many years have we been trying to get into this hotel. This rash draw. We probably became aware of it five years ago. And we've been trying since to get there and we've never been able to get in but because we were able to stay at their new hotel they were able to squeeze ascending. Because somebody at the last minute cancellation but we were sitting in this. You know the best restaurant in the world is plays austria just ghana and were sitting there for lunch and we go through a like four and a half hour lunch and it was amazing but it was just kind of the point where i was like. I can't sit in here with no air conditioning. No one was saying anything like everybody was kind of. Just staring was another stuffy and jeff sterile very sterile. I mean to service was incredible. Everything i'm never going to complain about it but it was just like jeff and were looking each other like i wanted to be in the spot. Where known as whipping up the scampi and the back and you can't talk. You can't communicate but you can communicate through linguini and love. You know what it is. I think that we are certainly capable and we do appreciate the finer thing. Yeah but when it comes to food we just want you know to get and quantity we wanna get down to brass tacks. We wanna lively environment. And i don't need the story behind the food. Because i can appreciate it without you going into a twenty minute description of of what's on my plate. Why there's a basil foam. i agree. I agree but i mean. Listen i'm not trying to burn bridges here okay. You have to stay at casa maria. It was it was truly a beautiful place and a wonderful experience.

Dave george clooney's replace now my new. I had called this joint to get a reservation. The hotel couldn't get us has like. I'm gonna fuck and try it called at like eight mike. Maybe you know somebody in show up. I call me like no. We can't under. We can get you in mike i. I'm making a reservation. Talked about myself with a third person for actress. heather mcmahon. I don't know if i thought because of in his film festival is here. They'll be like oh you know. Maybe she's lingering. She wanted to hang out festival. The guy literally without a why. Why are you wanna eat here. Yeah he was like no never heard of you. Okay we give you nine o'clock. I and i was just like well. We got the reservations so it worked but being in italy. No one gives a fuck. No one gives a fuck who you are less. You are george. Clooney trail brad pitt. Or you know julia roberts. They don't care who you know but even at that restaurant which the restaurant we went to was george clooney's place you notice. It was only like matt damon. George clooney brad pitt on the walls. Yet if you haven't done one billion in career box offices they don't give some cruise nonni single female actress. But it's such an italian. Like i don't know what the italian word from achieves moas because that's spanish with the word for like the male ego in a diet while i have no molly go so you're asking the wrong you don't never okay. Love my girls. He did call me queen today. And i will use stretching my back. And he he goes. I gave her the same patronizing voice. That i reagan tony when he stretches in the morning he goes gas queen. Yes queen stretch the straps. Yeah great stretch. So there is a great social media club and heather turned me onto a little becky probably a few weeks ago where it's basically if you do not congratulate your dog when it wakes in the morning and stretches you are a complete psychopath your asshole. You're probably you know a baby stealer. I don't know you're a horrible person. Yes so javid. Call me at queen today. So that is great but anyways we went to this restaurant last night. How'd you describe the ambiance. I mean this is one of my top ten spots that i've been to in a long time very small very intimate very old school. A true hidden gem the guy who's the maitre d' impossibly the owner giovanni looks like andrew dice. Clay to the point and if you don't only clay as an old comedian and like coke bottle glasses giant glasses. I mean it's like old school style and through the canals you can actually arrive by boat. You can walk there but you can also arrive by boat. Which is some gangster shit if you if you can roll up to a restaurant via gondola waterways. Yeah you roll in. Have your fragrant truffle pasta. Have your steak do a little Marone bought a big boom. You get in the boat and you're fucking just jet now through the dark waters venice. That's mob shit that is mob sheds pablo escobar esque. Just a quick getaway is available. Yeah should you need it. should you need it. You can literally get your rigatoni and then roll out. But i'll tell you what. There's something about venice when you arrive. And you're on the you know the water taxi and you feel the wind in your hair and you see the city. You're like first of all. I don't understand how this plays was fucking built. Can you explain this argument engineer. Architects known you for eleven years. I'm not an engineer. You still just don't seem to be grasped like do you. Do no one knows. That's the beauty of it. And i'm not going to explain it because that's how you get to charge the big bucks when nobody knows what you do. The big bucks okay. That's why you're charging 'cause at it. Looks like as of right now. You're charging me the big bucks to take you vacation and i would like to know when you're going to step up to the plate and make one dinner reservation and use your good name which is also a celebrity name and call these places and go. Hi. i'm jeff daniels. The actor from dumb and dumber and star of the newsroom. I would like to come to your restaurant since you do not accept female celebrities you just want me to finagle.

"So here. We are a little update. Bronco is what they say. In italy for everything i laura. We're in italy. Willie supposed to be here next week but because some of the shows got moved around i change that ticket real quick. Got an extra week off. So we came over here we popped down to. We flew to milano then. We went down to modena which is in the emilia remind your region and now we're up in the net zia. What jeff. He's giving me a look he's gonna come on the podcast here in a second so we're in venice a thing that i don't fully understand about italy is that they name their cities. One thing like florence is fed ends. But i'm like if it's florence and why don't we just call it. Fed ends a. You know what i'm saying like why don't we as americans is also call at ferenza anyways something. I'll take up with the prime minister. President i don't know what they have here anyways we're thriving. So what are we doing in italy. Well i was bringing jeffer- his birthday which is the twenty-first very exciting. So he and i had a little trip land and we're going to go straight tuscany that we had some extra days and here we are. I don't even know what i'm talking about. Because jeff is really bothering me while he's getting situated. You do podcasts listeners. Bring him in. He can help explain. What the fuck we're doing here without further ado live from italy his homeland but not really because he's from america but he is italian american talion the one and only the italian stallion ladies and gentlemen my husband. Jeffrey daniels how you doing. I know how you're doing because you're in a good mood 'cause pin stages when the football game and i sit in this hotel room for two hours. I didn't have to. I could have done things. But it's a little overcast. And i watched you watch penn state screaming like an asshole. Well first of all correction. They won about seven hours ago. I just happened to watch it right now. But also i just want to tell you that as much as you bitch and moan about me watching football and my theatrics it's great content for you so i'm happy to be here helping machine helping the machine. This motherfucker said. I've created such a monster with him. It's not even funny. He literally said you know. What would you say. I'm a content machine mkhonta machine. It's disgusting watching college football or any sports. In general i am a content machine new jeff. Okay i don't want you to ever utter those words ever again because that is the do she is thing you have ever said ever first of all just you living your life yes. Is it funny for sure. Why because you're a douche lord. I love you. You married a douche lord. I did marry a douche lord and you married a fucking rockstar. I did and i am richly. Blessed y'all it's just to me. I feel like. I said this on instagram. I need advocacy group for women whose husbands are just entrenched in obsessed with college. Sports professionals were but sports. In general it does works with z sports with z. It doesn't make sense. You're not the coach. No one asked you to chime in honey. You sat here with your ear. Buds in watching this game that aired eight hours behind us. You could just woken up. Looked at the scorn got. Hey we one. There is no fun in that. You are emotionally invested in the game and the outcome. There's children jeff. They're grown adults. They're all over the age of eighteen. So well penn state's questionable all right. Are you in the low hanging fruit. We need to stop this and move on but okay well yes we can move on but the point of the matter is you sat here and a gorgeous hotel wrote notes down a you literally wrote a letter on the chip ronnie letterhead. Who you going to send this letter to. They were some thoughts on the game as it was progressing. I'm sitting there studying film watching what's going on. What are you going to the boys. The group chat your boys who are all sleeping back in america right now. I gather my thoughts. Okay and get ready to disperse to the masses. We can discuss post-game reactions. Still your discussing the notes that you witnessed non-real-time after the game with your boys with the z. Well yeah because they all discussed it last night in the group chat and stuff last night but as you know i left my phone in the bathroom because i didn't want any surprises right so i woke up at seven. Am to p. And the first thing i did was look at the game at 'cause i wanted to know whether or not i'm going to have to deal with an asshole or an angel today and my biggest thing is funny. Is that your mood. Your temperament your general Likeability is always hanging on whether or not this team wins or loses. And i find that it's a jitney sekwa. It's an immaturity thing because said something goes wrong in life. You have to pivot. You were unable and it's men in general. I'm not just pinpointing this on you. A lot of men are not able to pivot post loss. Well in defense of myself and i guess i'm speaking for now the the entire male population of america which is something that you know. I don't want to do. But i feel like i have to do now. Me personally You see that. I don't get as upset about sports and stuff like that when it comes to professional sports because i am just you know the giants lose. It's not a big deal. Why is it not a big deal because college sports and the nfl are very different in nature. And the way they're structured. The giants can lose games and still make the playoffs and have a good season. Which doesn't make sense to me. How do you lose games. Still get to the end because it's just structured differently whereas in college sports if you lose one game you're vodka or two games especially the season is over okay. Also that's why the passion comes a lot more on saturdays than a dozen sundays. You're still an asshole about the giants. No i wouldn't say my mood is nearly as bad. What a giants lose. We're just used to that at this point. Only make a quick clarification is my safety and question. No jeff is not like raising marital hand to me. But it's the huffing italian puffing of you just around a lot of self loathing yes and anger but i don't understand because like i feel like with my job as a comedian. The only person i have to blame is myself but yet again also the elements in the crowd and you know if the bar was too loud in the lighting so there are a lot of other people can also blame. But i just. It's wild to me your reaction and how ih really fucks up your day when you had no part of it that's called phantom and being invested so okay well i hope my fans your fans are invest view the way that i am invested in you and and the state football so okay they have. They showed the same passion That i do for college sports all right anyways enough about this. Let's backtrack where are we. Were living our best life. Let me just tell you this right now. Okay we're in venezuela now and ben is kids a little bit of a bad rap okay. They're like touristy the foods that's some bullshit. You gotta come at the right time. I've always said coming to italy in september is the perfect time. Also i guess because a cove and it's not very touristy right now which is amazing. We're staying off not in the main area venezuela staying right across the water at the hotel belmont ship ronnie painful price not an ad. It's expensive as fuck so happy birthday. Jeff just so you now. Let's hear mealy. I won't eat for a week when we get home. Because this place is pricey but it's worth it for. My italian stallion who honestly has been a pain in my.

An excellent cast including you In this drama which you're playing a A town chief of police in the rust belt in pennsylvania. What attracted you to this role jeff. I drove by heinz field every day on the way to work. So there was that The steelers home and went to a pirates game. That was great. I love pittsburgh and I know these people. I grew up in michigan.

When the car companies left a lot of factories mexico and china same thing happened in pittsburgh in the eighties with the steel industry. And these people got left behind and they're good people and they're decent people and they just wanna break one break and they're staring at the bottom and they end up doing bad things in order to survive and those people are out there and as as entertainment goes i love the storytelling it's unpredictable.

"Is awesome. But it's not do it. Let's just. I mean we'll see rudd text back between the night i'm looking glenn close avatar or they're going to be great million. This is fantastic. Gotta be the bunny boy Okay i did this zoom Last week with my next guest who is Just dynamite just a great fun conversation. Jesus seems like a normal dude. Just very very very talented man. The actor jeff daniels right here on the rich eisen show. Welcome to the rich eisen. Show one of my favorite actors. And i'm not just saying that because he's kind enough to zoom in and support of his show american. Russ that premiers on sunday. September twelve at ten. Pm eastern time on showtime the emmy award winner. jeff daniels here on the richeisenshow higher sir. I'm good you. I'm doing very well. I'm because this is a radio audiences. Well i need to describe what i'm seeing. It seems to be a lot of a string guitars behind you right there. What what am i seeing behind you. Where where are you zooming in from jeff. What is this. Some actors prefer prefer cocaine. I i went with acoustic guitar. And it's it's It's as i've got too many of them. I got a lot of martin's decade twenties thirties forties and just lamb. I play and so that's been my kind of fetish if you will so there. They are right behind me. That's the You can i is this like can we have some sort of contest like many jelly beans in the jar. I mean It strikes me as a would that be about twenty five stringed instruments behind you jeff key yes and there are other places where a few more. I probably by the end of like thirty thirty five. My son is a musician and as abandoned. So he's got a few and so we have this kind of home recording studio restore everything and and Work out of an it's it's great. They're like old friends that you've had for years used hanging on the wall and and then when you're gone hand him to your kid so this being I guess the fodder of a show in which there's a lot of sports talk in pop culture talk. I'll i'll kind of put this in in the phraseology of of show like this when your greatest guitar player of all time. What would your mount rushmore as vita put put the floor up there. jeff daniels. Well there's there's electric. And i. I really love joe bono mousa a lot and yet just for the i. Just i just love joe there. Are people like buddy guy and you get into the acoustic players like steph and grossman and john. Fahey and john ran born stephanou. John rent corner two albums to remember. Hearing those in the seventies doc watson was somebody. I heard and said how he do what he does and tried to emulate some of that flat picking that he does those are just a few. There's a new. Guinan carry morin out of colorado native american guy. Just just just great can sit on stage with acoustic guitar. And that's all he needs. Jelly hopes deep track. I'm here giant. Is the acoustic guys. Sit there with just acoustic. And you're transfixed one hundred minutes that's hard to do and i've been fortunate to cease. These guys live cab malls and other one you know will kimbrough another one. So yeah jeff daniels here on the rich eisen show. Okay so What's the adjective. You use to describe the detroit lions season coming up and how you view it. Jeff daniels what do you got for me on. That line pace once again once again. I know jared goff had some trouble in l. a. I'd like to think it was a a bad marriage with coach. Sean mcveigh but the year before he was in the super bowl. It's true he was. He somehow got him to the super bowl and maybe different playbook different coaching staff. You gotta go in with that. It's it's who. Which jared goff are we gonna get and and i know i know sheila hamp forward. I know her well. She'll amp and she's all business. This is She went in there and started. You know throwing people out the window. And i loved it and this is she's it may take her more than a season. You know. get respectable. But i you know we could go one we could go on. What is it. Seventeen game vigor. To and fifteen or a week ago five hundred or we could get in the playoffs. I it's it's we just don't know and oh that's i you know i wish stafford the best in la right no. Maybe he's got a team. That's closer to the playoffs out there. Then than in detroit. But i thought it was wonderful parting of the ways stafford. I think went to sheila on company. Just said you know mutually beneficially feel free to trade me in owen. Feel free to move me and preferably To a contender which he would have had to approve. So i think that was handled really well and we got a lot of running backs. I mean you know more about football. Sure i'm telling you what you think of the coach. Did you hear dan. Campbell's opening press conference when he talked about biting off knee. What you think about jeff daniels. Which thinking well. he's either. See her again blind faith certainly so when you lead off with biting of kneecaps you gotta think well. He's either genius. Who can motivate players. Being an ex player speak in their language or he's a complete idiot. i. I'm i am hopeful i love. It's such a change at east stick in his chin out onto the field just like the players. So i'm hoping that. And he's got some real good people around and brad homes really like you know the whole scouting history. I think the brad as He knows talent. I just like the mix and if if biting kneecap speaks to the players and get them and get some motivated by some more item on the show a couple months ago and he had a good sense of humor about it talking about the Brought up the rare hannibal lecter way of motivating your team. It's very rare that you bring in the silence of the lambs to To a situation like that but we'll see all works. I think dan was just talking about eating kneecaps. I think that's all that. I don't think there was a movie. Rab in there at all it was. Just just let's you know let's go. Cannibalism on him. I don't know but whatever it was. I hope it works and if it works for in the playoffs. He's a genius he biton. I know jeff daniels here on the rich eisen show..

Maybe he should call the washington football team right now. I think we'd be ehrlich duty. Watch the football team. Came up with a final round of eight. Although i'm wondering if paul could be counted on that because paul chose one for us out of the final eight and We were a little disappointed. We wanted him to choose the other one right. Would you say. I think glenn watson chosen walking ibuprofen over glenn wasser knots which is a reference to from a caller for forgetting what glenn close his last name was. I don't i don't know why the great actress glenn close was at all part of our conversation at the time. That's the problem with just jotting these down without putting in the context We're real rounded. Show rich. i thanked paul for his time. Because again i mean. He's only deep in the marvel universe and those aren't just like you know. Hey can you just come for fifteen minutes shoot. You're seeing a that's like you know that's an all day situation. It's a big deal. So i thanked him for his time and he wrote you got. It probably should've gone with glenn watcher. Not is it too late to switch never to the poll and let the people people should decide. I mean 'cause. Paul touched both of them. Because and speaking of touching though. It's kind of like chess when you if you had head is paul ryan hanging up the phone. Essentially take his finger off the chesapeake. Like it's not an official move. Although i never saw that in the queen's gambit you know it's not an official fisher move right until searching for taking my finger off the which is what we would say to. Each other kids play cherry on. I'm not done done man. We moved back him hanging up the phone. I mean it's really are. I mean you thought we could do whatever we want. Yeah it seems.

I don't understand emojis Because they all have meaning correct they mean which yeah what was the eric dickerson used emoji back at me. That i don't know what that emoji means. 'cause i said on yesterday's show and derrick henry was running gonna run break his record. What did he send you. I don't know it kind of it was he. He wrote back. Because i said that eric dickerson is going to have to prepare it. You know he asterisk speech that there's an asterisk on his record. It's not the moon that he used but he kinda us like. The side of the situation goes l. Ll you're funny guy rich. We'll see you know. i responded. I responded with the The goodfellas jeff of like funny. Now i'd have to see this one though.

She's she's down on the floor like flip in the light switch like she's in a bad state right fine tantamount. They're funny that we use that movie. 'cause i think that's what it was right on what i thought the caller it was michael douglas after and he goes yes. That movie with Glenn wasser not the guy. I'm pretty sure i don't remember. I put up a poll to see people say Uh let's go to mike in washington. Dc you're here on the richeisenshow. What's up mike. Mike my to rich. Tj del.

'Hemingway' tackles the writer in a documentary as big as his tumultuous life

"Will be few adjectives in this story. Ernest Hemingway avoided them. Hemingway was the writer who said he was looking for one true sentence. He wrote stories of war and love bullfighters and boxers and fishermen. PBS documentary argues Hemingway influenced all writers who followed even those who hate him. The documentary features Jeff Daniels reading Hemingway's prose, like The Ending of The Sun also rises, where the narrator shares a taxi in Madrid with a woman who can't be in a relationship with him.

President Trump again refuses to commit to peaceful transition if he loses

"Hello and welcome to the view. Happy Friday to everybody Meghan will be back on Monday Anna. Navarro is here. We're always happy to have her and we WANNA start today by honoring the reason that we're all sitting here actually, which is because of Barbara Barbara Walters Happy Birthday Barbara many more my dear. Nationwide protests. Yes. Nationwide protests continue over the grand jury decision to let cops off the hook for killing Brianna Taylor. Now really that would be calling for calm and unity right right now right But trump is adding fuel to the fire claiming that he's protesting the use of mail in ballots and they may not peacefully transfer power over to Biden if he's voted out, take a look. To See what happens you know that I've been complaining very strongly about the ballots and the ballots are disaster and People are rioting. Do you commit to making sure that there's a little? Blue want to get rid of the ballots and you'll have a very. Very, peaceful, there won't be a transfer, frankly are the election results only legitimate if you win. So we have to be very careful with the ballots, the ballots to hope big scam and we wanna make sure the election is honest and I'm not sure that it can be. I. Don't know that it can be with this whole. Situation unsolicited ballots they're unsolicited million things sent everybody and we'll say. So. I, think he's playing the autocrat just wants to see which Republicans are going to line up behind them like they've done on every other heinous thing he said and done. But what do I know maybe Anna do you know you're a Republican? Do you think they'll fall behind him? Look I think a lot of them are distancing themselves on on this at least you know one thing joy. It's more of the same. Okay. The only thing trump has to offer the American people is fear that's what his campaign is sewing in the hearts of American fear fear of Lalas, fear of socialism fear ballots fear of election results fear of the transition. So this is another attempt at voter suppression. This is another attempt at making Americans fearful of what will happen if he doesn't get. This is another attempt of driving people to some people to the votes out of fear and keeping some people from voting out of fear and it just you know it's not going to work if you see what we saw in Virginia. Where early voting started and people were lining up for blocks and blocks. If people have to walk over molten lava to get to the voting booth I, think many Americans will and the last thing I want to say. Look I fled to Talibanism I've fled communism integral walk in one, thousand, nine, hundred. where I have heard this kind of talk and where I have seen unelected elected leaders try to perpetuate themselves in power is in places like Cuba, where the Castro's have been in power for over sixty years in places like Venezuela with showers and places like Nicaragua with Ortega and with Somoza it's the tater ships that behave this way. It's dictators that behave this way, and this is what Donald Trump is trying to emulate. Yes. It's ironic. Isn't it that they're worried a lot of the people you mentioned a worried about communism but he's the one who's acting like A. Communist. Countries that you're talking about. So Sunday, how how seriously you take in this actually. I'm taking it very seriously and I think we should all take it seriously because this is a president that. says. The quiet part out loud I mean he has no nuance and so he has been challenging the notion of mail in voting from the very beginning even though he submits his ballots by mail in vote. So I think we have to take very seriously and he's been sort of poisoning the well by saying there's going to be this massive voter fraud while I think people need to understand that this has been looked at there is no such thing as massive mailing voter fraud. In fact, the Brennan Center for Justice, it's a non-partisan think tank calculated. The rate of voter fraud and elections at between zero point zero zero, zero, three percent and zero point zero zero to five percent. Okay. Zero percent. So there is no voter fraud, but he's putting it out there and he's been saying it for a long time. So I, think these are the actions of a man who knows that he is going to be outvoted I think he knows he expects to be outvoted, but he wants to hobble that count, and so we have to take him very seriously. We need to take him at his word.

"Thank you, Diana, and Ashley for sharing your thoughts. We'll get some more of your thoughts and questions in just a moment. But let's add one more voice to our conversation here with us at NPR, New York. Benja Akina bay plays. Tom Robinson in this Broadway production. Bengal, welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. What made you decide to play? Tom robinson. The at first it was the people involved intense to work with Aaron Sorkin with, with Jeff Daniels. It started out as a as a workshop and that was exciting in of itself. So but then when we had the first workshop and we read through this, the first time it was so beautiful. Yeah, I was just glad to be in the room and then but I had no visions of being part of a Broadway production. And even then I just it was just today, works out that was, you know. Would artists get together and do this. And then later on. After that, Scott reached out and asked if I would be a part of the production to come. I was very excited. Safes excited nervous. No. Is this kind of a daunting thing? I I was excited. Nervous came later. When I started to realize the gravity of that was coming together. But it started out in a very organic way for a long time. Like, like I said, we were in that sub basement for about a year need meet periodically. And so it was it was just a stupid for us in a sub basement, no windows. No one looking at us. And so we got to do our own thing in dig into the peace over and over and over so nervous didn't come 'til. They said. All right. This is the last day in the basement time to go to the Shubert. Why do we, we just stayed on darkened safe? It's. What was your relationship to, to kill a Mockingbird before you are part of that workshop, I didn't have as much of a relationship with new of it? I had read exits of it, and I think it's seen the movie years ago, as a child, and I liked the movie, but I haven't been taught the book as thoroughly as most people had I was in special Ed for the majority of my adolescent, so we had a different education, but I didn't know it was a big thing, as far as education to, to most Americans as far as, as far as this sense of nostalgia to most people. So I was aware of its of its prominence to, to to this country. It's got to be an interesting way to approach it. I mean, a lot of people think of Atticus Finch, Gregory Peck. And so that image is like never gonna go away, but there's also something I think to being an actor who doesn't have all that in the background. I mean remember very different play. But I remember when they adapted. Shrek for the staves that the actor who played donkey had never seen the movie. You've never heard any Murphy voice, the character. So he brought something completely different. So for you to kind of step into this with more of a virgin perspective on Tom Robinson. That's gotta bring its own challenges to knowing you got an audience, like fist doesn't sound like what I saw with, Gregory Peck. Yeah, it's, it's I took it as as as liberty to create because we were making a new play. And that was from from the beginning we were making own play. We were not ever asked to although we knew there was a great deal of pressure to live up to the book. We will never asked to do the book, as far as the creative team doing own thing. So that gave us a great deal of freedom, and there was no way, I was going to watch the film in. I'm gonna do Brock Peters. I there's no way I just had to whether I was going to fall or rise. It had to be on whatever I brought to that stage. Let's hear piece of what she brought to that stage in a scene from the Broadway at tation. Of tequila Mockingbird. This is where Tom Robinson played by Bengo Akina bay meets his lawyer Atticus Finch played by Jeff Daniels. Listen, Don Robertson. Yes. I'm Atticus Finch. Yes. Vernon Hockney told you how come? Yes, you tell you why. No, not really. I'm alive. I know the facts your case, if you so choose, I will defend you, an open court in front of a jury not much appears. But still group of people who are not guilty. Verdict is available excuse me. Yeah. Wasn't able to follow that either. Can't tell you how to plead but I can't and a must give you my best advice. You wanna be my lawyer? Tom, very less thing. I won't in the world be lawyer right now negro man what teenage girl. It wouldn't be going in with a win and hands but I'm compelled to defenders officer of the court. And in that capacity of taking a Salam to give him a best council, which is that you cannot, and you must not lead guilty and go to jail for a crime that you did not could not commit. That's Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch and Binga Aquino bay as Tom Robinson in to kill a mocking bird, there is no denying the parallel between Tom Robinson and the stories of many black men who came there after Tom Robinson is kind of the Emmett till of the literary history until the young black man, who was killed in money Mississippi for allegedly whistling at a white girl who later admitted decades later, that she lied about the whole thing, having happened which ended up with 'em until being horrifyingly mutilated beyond. Recognition. How do you deal with the present reality in the story, but has so much of a kind of a history etched in stone? It, it makes it more difficult. Because it's a very, it's a real thing, that's happening on that stage and enough that stage. So it's one thing to betrays a story on stage, but knowing that their real faces, and their real lives and the body count is getting higher all the time. And that in that it makes it to me, it comes at a comes at a cost, but it's I think it's a, it's a worthy end ever. I think is important to, to tell the story of Emmett till what I'm up there to tell the story of Sandra bland on. I'm up there to tell story to Martin, I'm up there. As much as I can contribute to that conversation. So it's if you're fortunate to be able to have that opportunity to, to, to, to, to work that out. I think the most important thing about one of the most important thing about the play is not necessarily the story, we're telling but the opportunity for the conversations that we get to have about race in this country because of the story, we're telling Aaron Sorkin, what about for you? How much of the present reality of race factored into the way you wrote this adaptation. Well, first of all, hey, Banka. On the other side of the country. I couldn't agree more with what Bank just set, which is that, you know, in addition to. The great pleasure and satisfaction of, of that, too, and a half hours that experience that the that we and the audience have in the theater that two and a half hours, the opportunity for conversations after that. And particularly conversations with and among teachers and students, we do any New York City, public school student can see this play for ten dollars. And we do a we've been doing throughout the school year. I think it may be coming to an end now at least for this year. Special student matinees where the entire theater, fourteen hundred people, our students on some of whom have never seen a play before. So this vol experiences is new and exciting for them. But just going back to your question. There are new conversations that we can have now in addition to the conversations we had back when I was reading the book in school. I wonder also about the kind of audience that you reach with this production in terms of not just school kids, which is fantastic that you can fill a matinee with fourteen hundred teenagers and expose them to Broadway, Jeff Daniels. The active place Atticus Finch talked about some of the people that he hopes the play will really impact, here's part of what he told MSNBC's. Nicole Wallace, every night, you walk out there. And we pin the ears back of basically white America. Liberal. Merica comes in, and they go we had no idea. It was that tough, and it's a slap in the face. It's a wake-up call. That's Jeff Daniels. Speaking to Nicole Wallace on MSNBC banking about that aspect that, that you may be reaching people in this audience who consider themselves woke white people, and that this may still kind of really punch them, right? Between the eyes. I it's. It's been an interesting thing I mean, ever since I well prior to this. But Ferguson really was like one of the top enough points when, when white people started to really vocalise all no, I didn't realize it was this bad or, or that things with this, blatant. And, and a lot of people, including myself were, we were not shocked at how bad things that how how little was acknowledged seen as real amongst amongst lot of white people. And so, again, getting to be able to do this place. There's a there's a, a place every night where we get to come to meet, and discuss these thing, the audience, and the people on the stage and you look out there, and this, a lot of white people with disposable income and, and with the ability to come see this production, who have said this before, who have, you know, most likely my, my share we share Saint politics points of. Views but still benefactors from this very racist system. So there's kind of this weird economy that, that exist that we, we know but to varying levels, but it's still in its prevalent all our lives, whether we're the benefactors or subject to. So it's been interesting. It's been very interesting. I'm Joshua Johnson. You're listening to one A. We should note that not all of you who wrote in our fans of tequila Mockingbird. Here's another message we received fair warning. It contains a little bit of a spoiler. So if you're not familiar with the story of tequila Mockingbird, or the give us about thirty five seconds before you turn the volume backup having said that here's what Jim left in our inbox, Jim from Washington DC when I first saw to Mockingbird it move me thinking about it. However, I realized another white savior movie, which Atticus Finch save. Today. But if you think about it the day, actually isn't saved. The black man who is completely innocent winds up not only going to jail being convicted, but then dead, I talked with some people who actually forget that the day never got saved. Jim, thanks for sharing your thoughts with us Aaron Sorkin. We got a number of comments about this kind of white savior, trope. Chris in Hamlin. New York emailed, I've always thought that to kill a mocking bird was a feel good story for my fellow white, folk, the focus of the stories on the white lawyer, who's trying to do the right thing in the face of social opposition, William Faulkner's intruder in the dust till something like the same story, and African American being unjustly accused of a capital crime in a small southern town, but gives the African American defendant agency in his defense. His white lawyer merely acting under his direction. Aaron what about that, this white savior trope as it might relate to this story? What do you think? It's a very big subject very important subject. So I make if you an answer that's longer than you wanted. Feel rock me anytime you want. I get it completely. In the play I let me say in the play is opposed to the movie. There are a number of white savior things from the book that, that were kind of turned on their head for instance. My favorite scene in the book, growing up my favorite scene in the movie, and I would watch this. When I watched the movie, I'd watch this scene. I got a lump in my throat. I'd get goosebumps, and it's a lot of people's favorite scene is the end of the trial Atticus has lost in the entire courtroom as cleared out Atticus putting stuff back in his briefcase. The courtroom is cleared out, except for everybody upstairs in the balcony in what was called the colored section they're all Atticus turns around to realize, they're all standing silently in respect, and gratitude and Atticus, walks by the Reverend Sykes, who.

Popcorn with Peter Travers

12:40 min | 2 years ago

Tony Awards Preview

"Hi, everybody. It's Peter Travers than welcome to our special popcorn Tony award show. Now, I've gotta say, before we get into the nominees about who will win and who should win. This is been the most amazing year in Broadway history. It has made over two billion dollars at the box office that never happened. And why is it? I think it's Hollywood heat everybody from TV from movies from us. It wants to be on Broadway. They wanna be on that stage. You got this year. Kylo Ren and driver on Broadway. You have Walter, white Bryan, Cranston, there, Jeff Daniels who played Harry done in too, dumb and dumber movies. They're all fighting to be best, dramatic actor, what kind of stuff is happening on Broadway. Well, let's start with the major categories, and I'm gonna start with best musical the nominees are ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Beetlejuice remember that movie Haiti's town, the prom, and Tootsie. You remember that movie too? Well. I think the winner is Haiti's town. It's a rigid. It's basically the myth of Orpheus ritzy, but it's got a score by a woman named Naess Mitchell who doesn't come from Broadway, at all and kind of revolutionizes it. So what would happen what could spoil the fun? There's a little musical called the prom. It's really it's totally original. It's about these bunch of Broadway veterans, and they're really hard bitten, and they're not getting any press, and they decide to go to Indiana and help, a lesbian high school student take her girlfriend to the prom. That's it. How good is it? It's really good. And in terms of the Hollywood connection, Ryan Murphy, went to see it fell in love with it, and he's making a movie of it. So how about that? Then we have best play the Ferryman choirboy, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus. What the constitution means to me an ink. I'm telling you people, the Ferryman is got to be a movie soon. It's an Irish play. It's about the troubles, and in on a stage. We get to see an entire family deal with violence deal with their own feuds. We've got babies onstage. We've got live alive goose. We have everything there's nothing like I don't think there's any competition for it at all except there was a snub, the most successful play in Broadway history. That's not a musical is to kill among bird, and for some reason, the Tony nominee said, let's not nominated what I want. Answer on that one best revival of a play. Arthur, Miller's all my sons the boys in the band, burn this torch song and the Waverley gallery. I think Arthur Miller's all my sons which brought a net. Bending back to Broadway is a show that he wrote in one thousand nine hundred forty seven a bout a guy who was manufacturing airplane, parts and was to rush to do it. And so the planes crashed and killed pilots during the war. We live in the world of Boeing. Now, how timely could this be? So I think that's really up there. And I in terms of seeing a show that by playwright Arthur Miller who says, let's deal with the world we live in this one really, really did it then we have bible of musical. This is easy, because there's only two there's Oklahoma Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and kiss me. Kate. Of course, they were both movies. We saw Oklahoma with Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones in the fifties. But kiss me, Kate is done in a traditional way. Kelli o'hara's in it, Oklahoma is directed by guide named Daniel fish who find darkness. We're Rogers and Hammerstein only found light. It's a revelation to watch this. It's not the Oklahoma you've ever remembered, and it sung in the kind of country western way, look, if you ever get to see this on Broadway or win a tours get there get there quick. Okay. Okay. Best actor in a musical. And so, we'll do alphabetically Brooks as Mantas in the prom, Derrick Baskin and ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Alex Brightman and Beetlejuice. Remember when Michael Keaton had their part, Damon down, oh in Rogers and Hammerstein, Oklahoma. And send Tino fun Tanna into okay? The favorite is Tino, Tanna who is playing the part that destined Hoffman immortalized in the movie in the nineteen eighties. But what Centeno Tanna doesn't remember him on TV in crazy ex girlfriend like I'm saying everybody's from TV, or he does so much more. He sings as a man sees a woman, he does physical comedy does everything but stand on his hat. And I say, you know, who's out there that can spoil the win for Santino Tanna. And my answer is no one because this is one of the great performances you'll ever see on a musical, comedy stage. He's the winner. Best actress in a play Benning in Arthur, Miller's all my sons, Laura, Donnelly, in the Ferryman. Elaine may in the Waverley gallery, Janet mcteer in Bernhardt hamlet, Laurie Metcalf in Hillary Clinton, and Heidi Shreck in what the constitution means to me. Okay. Elaine may doesn't win this Tony. You're going to hear from me. She's eighty seven years old. She's returned to Broadway. After decades to play the part of a woman fighting Alzheimer's, and everything is no perfect about what she's done. She started with Mike Nichols doing comedy. She was starring in movies of like the new leaf directed things like the heartbreak kid. She's just one of the best actors I've ever seen anywhere. And if she loses and, you know, I feel bad for an bending because if Elaine may wasn't here this year, I think she would be the winner, but come on. Attention must be paid people. And I also wanna talk about a snub how. How does Glenda Jackson who won the Tony last year for three women returned to Broadway as King Lear? We talk about the age of hashtag metoo and time's up Glenda. Jackson is playing king. Lear gets rave reviews and the Tony committee says we're not gonna nominate her now. No, we're paying attention. And we're gonna come back and get you our best actress in a musical. Stephanie, j block in the share show Caitlyn Kanoun in the prom Beth level, in the prom, Eva nobles, ADA in Haiti's town, and Kelley O'Hara and kiss me cake. Stephanie j block who is that theater veteran is playing share in a way that sometimes she's more share than share. You might think this is just an escapist show thing to know she finds the character of who she is share shows up at this show often does numbers with her, and pus share. There's who's a bigger Hollywood. Name who is coming to Broadway with the show about herself. It takes three actresses to play here. But Stephanie j block plays the central one. And she plays the hell out of it. So she has just got to win. I'm sorry, people. All right. Best featured actress in a play for new of Flanagan in the Ferryman seal, you keep. And Bolger into kill a Mockingbird. Christine Nelson, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Julie white and Gary sequel to Titus andronicus and Ruth Wilson and King Lear people if you see if you see to kill among bird, and you should seal, you Keenan Bolger is very controversial because she's playing scout scout in the book and in the movie remember is in eight or nine year old girl. A C Keenan Bolger is in her forties. And yet, what she finds in this character who grew up to be Harper who wrote this novel is the heart and soul of the peace. So I'm telling you people this, this has got to happen. See Keenan Bolger remember that name best featured actor in a play birdie Carville and ink, Robin to hasten boys in the band getting Glick into kill a monkey bird, Brandon your Ranna wits in burn this Benjamin Walker in Arthur Miller's. All my sons birdie, Carville in ink. Those of us, those of you who actually went to Broadway couple of years ago and saw of any kind of a musical where you were shocked at a man playing a woman, you saw birdie, Carville in Matilda, and he played this woman, this horrible headmistress, and now he's playing Rupert Murdoch. So every who in Hollywood, who in politics would anyone hasn't been in an Rupert Murdoch publication or paper and who hasn't been rolled over the coals in it that performance and in London when he played it in one and Olivia ward, he had to play it in front of Rupert Murdoch. It's just an incredible job. I wanna talk a little about the snubs in this category. The non nominees there isn't actor named Bengal Arghanab into Killa mugging bird who plays Tom Robinson. He is the black man who is on trial for raping a white woman, a crime never committed. And he's defended. By Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch when Aaron Sorkin adapted Harper Lee's novel to the stage. He did it so that he could expand the role of the black characters as he did here. And again, the Tony committee, decided only to nominate the white actors from tequila, Mockingbird ignoring the two black actors who are just brilliant in their roles. You people you're going to get called on the carpet. You need to all right? Best featured actress in a musical, Lilli Cooper in Tootsie, amber, gray and Haiti's town Sarah, styles Tootsie, alley stroke, or in Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and Mary, Testa in Rogers, and Hammerstein Oklahoma there, something totally remarkable that happened this year in stroke, and Oklahoma.

Time bomb in Oklahoma, the one who sings, I can't say, no, the part went to Allie. Stroke, she plays it in a wheelchair and you would think that's inspiring enough.

Jeff Daniels ('To Kill a Mockingbird') on playing Atticus Finch

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

With Jim Carrey who is insane now. So, so they're both insane. That's great. They're both crazy MSNBC's. There's a bunch of crazy people on that morning show who are still shocked probably the report didn't give thought it would still shocked, the president one, they all thought he wouldn't the all think that, you know, Joe Emeco going to be a guest president and vice president vice president. Did you say the so that's the world? They're living in. And that's what they're four hundred thousand viewers have to watch every morning, every time you hear stuff like that. It's gonna make you. I try and kind of distance myself from it, and not say this publicly, but it's gonna make you feel really confident about twenty twenty numbers. Yes, I fully confident you never know in American politics, prove that at twenty sixty you never know what happens that election is going to swing one way or another by tens of thousands of votes. Keeping twenty twelve only by two hundred forty two hundred and fifty thousand votes, it's American lecture are always called. So it's going to be close. But the president has a beautiful paternity to make the case. The Konami unemployment the lows that's ever been for most sectors of the population lows fifty years overall, we have the highest confidence in the jobs market. We've had since two thousand in this country that just came out. In the last twenty four hours. So there's so much opportunity. Isis is defeated taxes are regulated as in place. The president has a full slate of options on which to focus on. He is doing that. And the Democrats are what going to be screaming dumb and dumber over there. Jeff Daniels doing, oh race this race that well let me ask you the special about rates Jeff Daniels. Why have the Democrats not done anything for African Americans in this country in the last decade over decade of a decade that has improved that kind of plight of African Americans in this country? But why is this president brought African American unemployment to storage slow? So if you want to talk about race talk to be about that. Don't talk about pandering. Hilarie love it. Love it.

Dumb and dumber Jeff Daniels on CNN seven the conversation about kill a Mockingbird. He's. Let's kill a Mockingbird. And he starts getting into a conversation about Trump. Both course he does. We already know that Jim Carey has co-starring dumb and dumber is absolutely positively vicious with his artwork, which is a good artist but it's just nasty and ugly, and and beyond, you know, was beyond the pale. Contempt is ugly dude with his with his hatred his vitriol, and his and his lack of knowledge as I see it, but Jeff Daniels now is being asked questions about the electorate he does two things in this first. He of course, slams Trump because that's what people do and he takes a shot at the mid west here. Listen to this, children are watching and, and I live in Michigan and. After the election, I was surprised some of the people, you know, I said, can you believe this election, they go? Yeah. Isn't that great and you're going? Whoa, my wife's on Facebook and these go. We've got another Trumper in all. And it's just you didn't see a common Abacus goes through this. I know these people. They're good people. There's there's, there's there are reasons why needs an apologist. He's an enabler. And I think there are people in the midwest between the coast, who don't pretend who don't know anything about who don't care about this. I don't have time for this who have to make a decision. You have to decide whether it like Atticus you believe that there is still compassion decency. Civility respect for others. Do unto others remember that do unto others all that stuff? You guys believe in, and you still voted not for Hillary or for Trump. Where are you now every because your kids are looking at you going, but he lies and, and I think there are a lot of people in the mid west who are gone. It might be enough for them. We're going to find out if you know if the big gamble is to go all the way to November twenty twenty which I agree. And lose is the end of democracy. All right. First things. First, not the end of the moxie calm down. Turns out he does dramas well, come down. Jeff. It's not the end of democracy. We can at least be clear about that. Secondly, your kids are looking up at. Yeah. And that's why many people voted for Donald Trump and that you didn't see it coming says, much more about you. Why didn't you see it coming? You ask yourself that question why didn't you see coming that? Hillary Clinton is a criminal, she's unlikable. She's untrustworthy she's diplomas she's dirty. She can't even figure out what classified means on a document. She can't figure that out. She's been around classified documents, most of her adult life. She's also been dirty and untrustworthy most of our, you know, she was kicked off investigations into Watergate. Right. She was part of, of that she was one of those lawyers, and she was somebody who believed that Richard Nixon, shouldn't have a lawyer, and they're like, okay, we're done with you now we'll just we'll just excuse you here. We'll just just, you know, move you out right there. We were we're good. Thank you very much. I mean that's a that's a special kind of dirty. You know, when when you're not good enough for that investigation. He didn't notice this. He didn't notice this. He didn't notice that Trump was talking about all these forgotten people. You're not a racist. You're not a big working hard to take care of your family. I see you. It's tough to get a job. It should be easy to get a job. We should make things easier on you. He remembered the people who were all forgotten. Those people matter to you have a society, there's more and more technologically advanced technological Cape capable. And you need more people to take on those tech jobs. I don't disagree at all. An anyway. But doesn't mean you abandon people say you can't keep up too bad up. We're going to have same sex marriage. Guess you're not awake enough for woken up for that. And what the hell was that about the mid west? Why did he bring up the midwest and you still voted not for Hillary or for Trump? Where are you now the everybody because your kids are looking up at you going, but he lies and, and I think there are a lot of people in the mid west who are gone. It might be enough for them. We're gonna find out. Little slam to the mid west. I don't take slams to the mid west. I don't take kindly to that kind of nonsense, and he lives in Michigan. He's always proud of Michigan. Always doing ads for for, you know, taking some kind of trip to Michigan. Well, there was a part two to this conversation and here, it's a lot less subtle. You've done Hollywood. You've been New Yorker but you're also you wouldn't Michigan looking all these Democrats is they're not maybe not advocates. But when you look at these Democrats thinking about who could inspire with foreign skills, just savings, Democrats and go. I'm watching that guy or gal. I'm watching intelligence if politics, you know, more than I is a hundred and eighty degrees, swing. I think that's part of the eight years of Obama. Let's go for the whitest guy. We can I mean, I think there's an element out there in the middle of the country. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. That's it's one hundred eighty degrees. Swing. We had eight years of Brock Obama. Let's go for the whitest guy. We can that's something in the middle of the country. Translation, they're racists, in the midwest. They didn't like a black presence. Now, they went for the white guy. There were sixteen white guys. They could have chosen. Why did they choose Donald Trump? The hundred and eighty degrees. Swing was not the idea that they went for the white guy instead of Barack Obama, that's what people like yourself. Tell yourself to get yourself to accept the fact or understand the factor deal with the fact, I should say that Donald Trump is president of the United States. You decide that everybody else had to be a racist. How else could they vote for him? It doesn't dawn on you that Barack Obama was a bad president. A bad guy. He's a bad guy. Now he might be a great father. I don't know. I've never judged him on that. I'm not about to be a great husband. I don't know. I've never judged him on that. I'm not about to. He told you the Cambridge police acted stupidly. He engaged operation fast and furious. He knew that he was lying when he said, you could keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. He knew that he was engaging in a false echo chamber in order to get the joint comprehensive plan of action past. His ideas on Konami like cash for clunkers, and others were total disasters. And he had a disdain. For the American people in that midwest. Like in Michigan. In Indiana in Wisconsin. Parts of Texas and Oklahoma. A disdain. Kind of like you have Jeff. The reason people voted for Donald Trump is because they wanted a white guy. That's what the midwest. That's not true. I didn't live here. In, in the, the Obama days, right? I moved here towards the end of the Obama era and the start of the Trump era. I've been in Indiana in the midwest. For five years. It's been fantastic. Been fantastic Jewish kid in the midwest. No one has ever said to me from around here. Are you boy never once happened? Give me wrong. I've got a lot of emails in my life. No one's interested in your New York sensibilities. Well, New York does mean Jewish that much is true. That much is true. That's what they said. One person said that. Everybody else is like welcome. Do you think I rank the entirety of, of Indiana based on one guy? In on the east coast. They throw you out of restaurants of your conservative on the west coast. They don't let you be in movies work, our movies, if you're a conservative, that's where the bigotry is. I mean, I guess if you search long enough you'll find what it is. You're looking for. They didn't vote for Trump because he was white, but they did vote for Trump because of the hundred and eighty degrees, they wanted somebody who actually thought the country was worthwhile and not the somehow disgusting. Despicable place of drek and filth. That simply have to be remade. As opposed to rebuilt. As opposed to a reminder that the American way of life is the valuable way of life. That's what Trump did for them. That's why he got elected. He said you matter in the country matters. And Brock Obama didn't say that. And Hillary Clinton has never said that because Hillary Clinton did not believe you matter. She only believed that she mattered. And she was going to shatter that glass ceiling. And this was her time so much. So that she screwed Bernie Sanders to the wall to get the nomination. Took control. The Democratic Party controlled the purse strings, the Democratic Party finagle the super delegates and screwed Bernie Sanders out of the nomination. Very possibly, the only chance will ever get to be president of the United States. And that's why people didn't vote for Hillary. And that's why people have disdain for Barack Obama, and that's why they gave Donald Trump a try because they said with Hillary Clinton. I get nothing but with Trump, it's a jump ball. I have a fifty fifty shot tonight. I said, I'm pretty happy with my choice Nabi on everything. But you never going to be happy about everything, you know, it's, it's like dumb and dumber to. Who, who could be happy with that? I'm Tony cats. Another news update is minutes away. Hang less for gas. The state average went down a couple of cents the Daniel ties soon as July.

"If the Democrats continue this collision course with sanity they're gonna lose. And you wonder about the lack of accountability. Is there ever going to be accountability? That's what dean wants to address here on line two. Hey dean thanks for hanging in there with us. How are you? Fine. Thank you. Good. Good to talk to, you will. Thank you. Dean. First of all, I wanna thank God for Trump. Pretty offi for us to half America the lure going down the tubes. I do not understand why. Cannot be. Our with tree them. So what they're doing to our country. Every time. Come out of their personal pocket for all of the. That I have wasted all their own lawyer report that fam- Nessie. Well that's the question. I was asking a minute ago about a lack of accountability. I mean, what's the where's the accountability for an attempted coup? Listen. I hate to say this and it's going to sound. Dramatic or melodramatic whatever impeachment would be a dream. That would be the best possible scenario for our side because you wanna talk about a reckoning, they'll be a reckoning the likes of which they have never experienced if they stupidly pursue impeachment. And I've said all along, they will they can't help themselves. They just can't they don't like the outcome of the Muller investigation. So now they got a genetic Jim Jen up some other charges to try to make something up to try to stop him because they know he's gonna win. And I believe they're afraid that Pelosi is gonna lose the gavel again. And that Republicans are going to re regain control of the house next year. Trump said it yesterday in Pennsylvania. How do you beat the best to Konami? We've ever had. Why would you. Why would you vote to replace the best economy? We ever had with somebody else. And you continue to be more and more Americans. Sort of come out of the shadows, at admit this is this is the direction this country ought to be. I mean you listen to these guys the, the panic listen to Jeff Daniels. I saw him on Broadway a couple of months ago. He's right now starring in a production of Broadway production of, to kill a Mockingbird, great actor, terrific performer. And yet, these these people on the left, they can't help themselves. Here he was yesterday on MSNBC now, this is an actor and I get it. I mean, we shouldn't pay too much attention to what Hollywood actors have to say I mean, and I'm not trying to mock their profession, but these are people who pretend to be other people for a living and many of admit that, you know, I mean, it's not exactly. You know, police work or digging ditches. They get paid a whole lot of money because they're gifted at one thing, pretending to be somebody else on stage or on TV or on screen, and Jeff Daniels is one of the best, here's what he said about Trump being reelected next year. This is cut number seven from MSNBC and gravy. And, and I think there are people in the midwest between the coasts, who don't pretend don't know anything about who don't care about this. I don't have time for this who have to make a decision. You have to decide whether it like Atticus you believe that there is still, compassionate decency. Civility respect for other. Others do unto others. Remember that do unto others all that stuff. You guys believe it, and you still voted not for Hillary or four Trump. Where are you now the every because your kids are looking at you going, but he lied and I think there are a lot of people in the mid west who are going. It might be enough for that. We're going to find out if you know, the big gamble is to go all the way to November twenty twenty which I agree and lose is the end of democracy. The end of democracy democracy will end. His Trump wins next year democracy itself. Will come screeching to a halt now, somehow in Jeff Daniels mind, the first four years didn't end democracy. But it's the second four years that will definitely put an end to democracy, see, when when people like him use that kind of ridiculous rhetoric. You recognize there's zero.

Inside Aaron Sorkin's 'Mockingbird' story

"Playwright and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin says he was eager to adapt. Harper Lee's to kill a Mockingbird for Broadway. But he still had some serious. Reservations about the job. I said yes, knowing really it was a suicide mission because people have a very special relationship to the novel. And it's a great book. What could I do but make it less than than what it was? And the acting future of Jesse smollet is still unknown. But his character on empire just made TV history all that up on the frame. Welcome to the frame. I'm John horn when Tony nominations are revealed next week to kill a Mockingbird will likely get a lot of attention almost certainly for Jeff Daniels who plays Atticus Finch, but the adaptation by earned Sorkin was far from easy. Scott Rudin secured, the rights to the patient and got Harper Lee's personal approval of Sorkin. It's the playwright. But then things started to go awry following Lee's death three years ago the estate eventually sued to stop the production. We'll get to the lawsuit in a bit. But when I spoke with Sorkin about to kill a Mockingbird. He I told me why his first draft didn't work. I simply try to do. No harm. I I took the most essential scenes that you need to tell the story, and I stood them up and dramatize them and the whole thing felt like a greatest hits album done by tribute band. And I turned it in and Scott who usually at that point. Would meet with me for days and ended up with hundreds of notes to go back and do the second draft with he met with me for less than thirty minutes and gave me two notes. And the second note was the one that changed everything. What Scott said was that Atticus can't be advocates from the beginning of the play to the end of the play. He's got a change. That's what protagonist does a protagonist has a flaw protagonist put through something and changes as a result. And I thought well, of course, Scott's right? That has to be what happens in a play. I wonder how Harper Lee got away with an Abacus who's the same. At the beginning of the book is at the end of the book, how Horton Foote got away with an Atticus in the movie who's the same at the beginning of the movie is the is at the end of the movie. And that's when I realized that advocates isn't the protagonist in the novel or the movie scout is she's the one who changes her flaws that she's young and the changes that she loses someone for innocence. And while I wanted scout. And dill to remain protagonists in the play. I wanted advocates to be the central protagonist. I wanted him to be put through something. I wanted him to have a flaw on. I wanted him to change is a result. And what happened in that moment was that? I simply stopped thinking about the word adaptation that it. No longer was my goal to gently swallow the novel in bubble wrap and transfer it to a Broadway stage that I was going to write a new play taking the circumstances that Harper Lee put on the table. And that's when things started to take off. So I'm gonna ask you this. Obviously, it's a period piece. But I'm gonna talk about it's modern relevance of which there is a tremendous amount. What was happening in the world as you were adapting or reimagining, but ever we're gonna do whatever verb are gonna use to describe what you were doing with harp. Elise novel to make it a play. Yeah. Well, what was happening in the world. Was Trump was elected president Charlottesville was happening. Charlottesville became an important touchdown in this. And I'll tell you why Atticus in the in the novel. This was in thinking about what flaw can Atticus half. Does he go from being a bad lawyer to a good lawyer, a bad father to a loving father a racist believing injustice in a quality, and obviously no on all three? What I realized was that Atticus already had a flaw. Harper Lee gave him one. It's just that. When we were learning the book, we were taught that it was a virtue advocates says throughout the book that there's goodness in every single chicks, go get along better with all kinds of folks never really understand it until you consider things from his point of view. Climates out of his skin woke rounding he excuses. Bob, Buell's racism by saying the man just losses WPA job. You know, it's he excuses. Mrs Dubose is racism by she recently stopped taking her medicine or morphine. He excuses. The town's racism. This is the deep south things happen slower here, you know, give gift people time and thinking about all that at the same time at Charlottesville happened in it started. What Atticus was saying was starting to sound to me like there were fine people on both sides. Right. And that's when the bells rang, and and I was really able to kind of go from a walk to a gallop. We're talking with earned Sorkin about his ad obtain of Harper Lee's novel to kill a Mockingbird. I wanna play a scene between Atticus Finch and Tom Robinson who's been accused of raping a white woman. And the story can't tell you how to plead, but I can't. And I must give you my best advice. You won't be my lawyer. Very less thing. I won't the world be your lawyer right now negro man, what teenage girl wouldn't be going in with a win hands. But I'm compelled to defend us an officer of the court, and in that capacity of taken Salamo to give him a best council, which is that you cannot and you must not lead guilty and go to jail for a crime that you did not could not commit. So how do you figure out a way to dramatize what Atticus is going through? And how he's changing the way that he sees an excuses behavior through the play. What tricks? What are the things that you are able to do with the text and through new dialogue and putting dialogue and other characters mouse, they get you to that place where he can evolve for me, a big part of Attica ses journey in this play is going from someone who says, I know these people these are our, friends and neighbors sure some of them may be stuck in the old ways. But there are none of them that are so far gone. They would send an obviously innocent man to the electric chair, and he discovers that he doesn't know his friends and neighbors that to me does a really good job of of reflecting. I think how a lot of us no matter where you are on the political or ideological spectrum the way, a lot of us have felt these last few years that we thought we knew our fellow Americans. But we didn't we were wrong about our friends and neighbors, and that's one of the reasons why this play based on a book that sixty years old that takes place ninety years ago feels so much like today.
