No but you know. I love this i i also just wanted to mention critical thinking to which i think is such a great project that you start and then you directed which was you say is a true story about these latin and black kids in the ghetto in miami who become chess champions that that's their way incredible story man. It was a beautiful story by two story. Five latin and black kids on the toughest neighborhoods in miami call over town liberty city back in the day and in nineteen ninety eight. You know they're school. Was bid you know trickle down economy you know is allies. That nothing was getting into that neighborhood and this teacher mary martinez one that i play created.

They wanted to place to nerd out and he created this little space and they became united states national chess champions in nine hundred ba five years in a row incredible story. I just love. Also that you're starting a light on nerds are everywhere you know. And every every minority group has has yards and every socio economic class has nerds. And that's one of the things that i think is sort of a beautiful thing. It's a weird sentiment. But there's no group in america that doesn't have its share of nerds. Who are doing and and they're the ones that identify with. They're the ones that i to me. I was a ghetto nerd. My brother was a ghetto nerd. You know we just grew up in a tough neighborhood.

"The job insecurity i started producing conan when i was fifty five. Now why is he aging. And i'm not. I don't send it on the methuselah so you know what's fascinating is that you've had some people would say okay. I'm just going to go to stand up from going to sketch comedy. You got yourself and you were determined to get apparently very broad education in theater and all kinds of theater. It felt like you had this sort of big appetite for. I wanna know improv. I want to be able to do one man shows. I wanna be able to work and sketches with other people. I wanna be able to work as you have with some of the best directors in in the business. You had this appetite for throw it at me. I wanna learn about it. I wanna take this seriously. I stay with the greats. When i learned a lot from them. And it made me appreciate craft you know and so to me craft. I felt everything a a skill. And you had to learn improv and sketch comedy and then i do meant shows was one man. Show crafting. i. I loved it and and an awesome. I'm a latin guys so my opportunities also limited so. I knew i had to do everything. If i was ever gonna survive in this business. Just like j. lo j. Lo what she does she test the dance. Justice sinks has so cologne jazz by a judge on a show. He because you know you can't do it on. Just your latin this right right probably hard for you because you've seen it change so profoundly since you were nineteen twenty right and a latino guy was this. Y'all without maybe. I'm gonna kick your ass you either gang banger. A drug dealer or you were cleaning. Somebody's house and it was always louis mind beneath taro. Benjamin bratt and we go to these auditions and it'd be the was Bidoon behind was doing this shit again. All yeah we're doing this shit again and know. They called me and made up coming in. You know you put on the all leather jackets bandannas on it was so it. Was you know it was like stepping latin style right. I mean obviously throughout your career. You kept hammering away at you know changing that identity me and you you look at what kids young kids are seeing now is if you had said when you were nineteen or twenty i wanna play alexander hamilton. Just imagine the reaction that you would get lin-manuel. Can you imagine pitching that to a network or studio. The studio would be like excuse me. Wait a minute hamilton. We played by puerto rican 'imbursement. Be black tell you. I know for a fact that founding fathers didn't speak in hip hop never got done it would have never been a movie it would have never been a network or streaming series. It would happen but the beautiful thing about why i stayed in theater but because there are no gatekeepers there you know what i mean. It's just a matter of raise the money you have a great script that you hope is his critic proof and boom. You're set for life you know you. Your content doesn't have to be passed on executives or or or lesser executives trying to prove their worth giving you ridiculous notes. No you do your thing with your director and boom you're on stage. The audience either comes or dozen. And that's your that's how you survive in. That's how you know you're you're relevant. I i know that the times in my life. When i've been when i'm attached to a giant machine i'm always conscious that i'm here by the grace of that machine. You know that that they can come see me like giant network giant network or studio. I know that i'm here. And what does that make you do. What does that make you do. It just makes you you know. I tried throughout my career. To just let my weirdness freak flag fly regardless of that but there are periods in my. That's pretty amazing. I got to say that. It's pretty amazed because to utah yourself to be unique individual takes a lotta Courage and and cleverness because how do you get that passed the network. All wanna make everybody the same progeny life in the early days. What i learned which was smart was just to just agree. Eventually they forget and then when it starts to work they forget that they told you at high to go like you know. Lose the stupid haircut. Chance a stupid name Stop acting like an idiot. And these sketches are so weird. Stop being so weird and what happens over time they just when it's starting to work there like yup. Yup i knew that would be okay. And i and then the thing it's important to do is don't say i told you. So so right right. Say yeah no thank you. Thank you very much just keeping anything to keep it going. Let let make them think it's their idea. And they came up with and then they love even more because they believe that they are the ones that created you. Yeah created the success of the shut. You have done such a spectacular job of creating your reality. You can do a one man show but you can also be directed by brian depalma or a spike lee or being like romeo and juliet. Moulin rouge you can it. There's no putting you in a category. And i think that just comes out of talent and stubbornness i'm guessing because it's not definitely it's not just one you're right. It is a lot of stubbornness. Because i'm not going to quit tenacious that i wanted to be with all the greats like baz luhrmann and spike lee do bernie. I got a chance to be in incredible sees when they see as the central park. Five i know. I saw and i i would have paid her to be. Because you don't want to mention that you don't want to say that i'm saying it now after was really stupid and you always want to mention that right up front. I'll do this for free. After the fact i don't know how old your kids are but My son is fourteen and my daughter's sixteen and that that that made that so hard for me to watch just knowing how sensitive and beautiful and innocent a fourteen fifteen or sixteen year old can be and see them get put through that meat grinder unjustly i. It's not was nauseating just absolutely. Yeah absolutely nauseating at the justice system. I mean some of the kids weren't even there right. That's the crazy thing. They rounded them up. It was a crazy crazy story. Where trump took one hundred thousand page ad high pay for it because he's he's always broken his taxes but But somehow he got. He paid back when he paid his taxes. This is back tax than twenty years. Maybe you might say business just before when he overpaid overpaid taxes and he realized and so he decided twenty for twenty years after this. I'm going to recoup overpayments that i made. I'm pretty sure because this is a very pro-trump by cats. So that's.

The Adult Toys From Dodge

"This week's project. Car of the week is actually a van and I'm starting to think I should just call this segment. Mo- par project of the week just because. You know I picked more than just cars for the segment. So be ready for that change. I'm trying to be a little bit more diverse with the Mo parts that I choose for this segment because I do like mo parts from all areas and all types of Mo- parts and I think that good moped projects aren't just cars sometimes their trucks, and since I'm on a van kick this week was a van and Let, me say that I actually set out to find van for this week's project. There was just one issue there aren't very many out there. So let's read the ad and then we'll talk some more about vans and why they can make cool projects. The van featured on this edition of Mo- Project of the week was posted on the Mo- part hundred facebook page on Sunday September sixth at nine. AM HERE IS THE AD. Van Three Thousand Nine, hundred, ninety, five, dollars, nineteen seventy five, dodge tradesman shorty three Eighteen v eight auto runs drives and stops pretty well for a forty five year old van. If you've been looking for one of these, this is one to consider not showroom ready. But great start to a street machine serious inquiries only please three, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, five dollars, or best offer title status is clean. So. This ban is a short wheelbase van, which for these is one hundred, nine inches compared to the longer versions that one, hundred, twenty, seven inches the van that I wanna buy from Stacey is a hundred, twenty, seven inches for wheelbase. So it's longer than my dad's was since my dad's was a like this van the one in this ad is to tone it has a light blue base with a thick. Dark blue striped mid body in a dark blue roof. It has a windshield visor which is very buggy vanish and it has my favorite bubble windows of all time. The PENTASTAR portholes they are super rare and I'd love to hunt down a set for my future van project. But if stacy's van ends up being mind, then I'll just settle for the round portholes unless I can find. Those awesome. Pentastar. Wants this van. Also has a grant wood grain steering wheel, which adds to that nostalgic feeling along with that pop up Sunroof, and it looks like at one point back was done up like seventies custom but right now it's pretty bare, which is great. Because most of the time when you find these vans, the cargo area usually needs to be redone. These old buggy vans had all shag carpet and cabinets put in Old Saints and. Things like that. So chances are if you find one of these, it'll probably need new carpet and things like that. This one actually has a plywood floor and looking around it actually looks like the van was originally read. The good news is that it will be easy to strip the cargo area and get creative to create your own space. I. Like the idea of a modern version of a classic book Van Something. Creative enough that you can go to shows and show it off. But you can also go camping, and if you're the nomad life, you can hit the road and live that van life but it would also be cool to get this thing capable of hauling a race car that way you have a place to store your tools, parts, extra tires, and have a place to stay at the track instead of. A ten I really liked that idea for me I like all those possibilities but the possibility of having a mobile podcast studio when I go to events would be really cool and if I bring merch with me, it would make a great display for the Merch to this thing has a three eighteen. It's running and driving and hey, it stops too. So that's always nice I like projects that you can. Drive home and this thing is you know that type of a project, it even has some pin striping on the hood, which is cool because it's kind of like a throwback. It does need some new wheels and tires and some fifteen by ten on fats in the back and some fifteen by eight in the front would give this thing that groovy raked stance that was so popular with these vans back. In the day I, think that this van is also in desperate need of a front lip spoiler and the fender flares, which you can surprisingly still find if you look hard enough online but all in all, I'd say if you were interested in getting a Boogie van for a project for less than four grant, I think this one is a great candidate I actually did reach out to the seller just to. Feel the water and see what the temperature was like and it sounds like he's pretty firm with not much wiggle room. But he said that thirty five, hundred to the right person would take it home. WanNa know what I offered him. But that's a whole nother story since these vans are hard to find think he's in the ballpark the side doors do have a little damage and there's definitely some work probably needs to be done but overall, it appears to be pretty solid. So if you're looking to get back into fanning and relive your youth or even if you're a rookie banner, this would make a fun project keep on Truckin my friends that was Mo- part project of the week Nomo par left behind. Since we're on the topic of vans.

"It wasn't Mike Episodes Cedric. Falter any of our fault man it was just The studio wanted to make it to Disney to cute in there and killed it I mean if you're going to remake the honeymooners, you gotta go like rude and and bring it up to date. Yeah. That's true I think that's a good have been at great said it would have been a great Jackie gleason. He just needs to be more cedric unless you know a fifty. Sitcom. So so it got Disney fide. They could never allow in a shore movie for Ralph Crampton to say you know go. Yeah. Go to moon now. That he's going to punch his wife tomorrow. I, love you so much. Knock you out that doesn't that hasn't played in our modern world as we wind down. John Darren folks. Another listener does does John have any memories about being in the Madonna video for borderline of course, man I mean the room was a Madonna was like into Latin guys and she would drive her limousine around and pick them up. So I. was like. I'm going to make it easy. I'm going to show up on the set. It'd be right there. But all I got was a pen the back in the sandwich. Sam Weisberg early in your career John, you played multiple hilarious parts in the underrated Porta Rican Mambo not music. Yeah. That was the early early things that you do for. You know because you WanNa work and this Puerto Rican cat. wrote the script directed produced did the whole thing himself and he had me playing one of those guys who who are self hating and heading Latin Guy I have to tell people to before we get to the new movie that you directed and we'll talk about that. I just want to tell people to find a ghetto clown if they can find it and Latin history for morons they're both terrific shows I've been having been having trouble finding a ghetto clown streaming at, but there's a documentary. About the making of. Fascinating your work ethic that you actually decided to take the show to Columbia and learn. Fluent Spanish so that you could do the entire show in Spanish. It was brutal man it was a year of my life. I was like a monk. I was like all I did was rehearsing Spanish had had a grammar teacher, a dialect teach it was like learning a foreign language that but I already knew but I couldn't learn it. A somebody can retain it in my head and I was able to do it. I traveled. I was one of the first American performers to perform in Columbia and it opened it up and then also beyond say wet and Madonna. So. It was kind of like a an important diplomatic move from me to show you how safe it was to perform over there. It's really touching the documentary how you were embraced there. Beautiful. It's beautiful. I mean I feel like when I go there I feel like and with family and you've you've opened up theater it's so many new audiences which which you should be credited for. Thank you. Thank you. I. Mean It's important to me. Would you advise Gilbert attempting to one man show? Oh Hell Yeah Gill. was think I guess so why not? Yeah are you can do it too yeah. Could you do something seven nights a week Gilbert without losing you see see that's the part I hate. It's like with movies. Yeah. Hardly have to work. Sitting around all day, you're at the craft table. On stage you actually have to work. Seven yeah. But you know Bruce springsteen did a show five days a week. He only did five shows. And you don't have to be as physical as John You don't have to dance and do somersaults and all the be like spalding great because you sit at a desk. Yeah. To me walking out on the stage would be my accent is. The door bogged down the stairs pushing the curtain and one of your shows. You had trouble publicizing because to the title. All yeah well well speaker. Rama. Which I say It was it was bad in Texas and in Canada because of the title they don't get irony. Do they know they don't get it? They don't I. Mean They Texas Strange Place we all know that hopefully hopefully will turn blue this this twenty twenty because I mean forty percent of the population is Latino twelve percent black in Texas and it's ready to be blue if they if they didn't Gerrymander it or veteran Harry band or the hell hard of voter restriction that they. Know It's a felony in Texas to register somebody if you're not if you're not deputized and the deputising is open, once a year on boy. So they definitely don't want democracy there. Let's hope it's in play. I Gilbert I absolutely could see you doing a one man show where you sit on a stool. Yeah. Oh Yeah Elaine stritch. Yeah. Elaine she was older than you. Yeah I'm big to Elaine. Kaiser compliment. He was like seventy something at the shirt and nothing underneath. Choreographer for all those shows John Because, I told you. My wife will stop doing anything. She's doing dance. Choreographer yeah. You know I I wanted to be super tight. I got somebody hugged me up and then sex a hall was there the woman in the audience was not plant. She was just a woman you pulled out of the audit. Yeah. Yeah. Eventually, I'd made it a plant. Some people can dance. Okay. I don't be deshea somebody who can't I had to I had to ask. Tell us about the new movie critical thinking. Critical thinking is my independent film debut a comes out. September. Fourth on all platforms, it's it's two story of five Latin kids. Who became United States chess champions in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight. And they came from the ghetto ghetto in Miami and they regional champs stay champs and then became United States chess champions when nobody believed in them, they had no money no recourse and they made it. When does it come out? September fourth. Okay. Good good and and what's happening with this comic book that you told me about with image comics yes. GonNa, pick it up these tests pages. And we can see. And here it is chance for. So it's called Fina X. and the uncontrollables, uncontrollables and Todd McFarlane who did spawn with me is publishing them on image comic books, which is the third largest publisher in the world after Marvel and DC is image. So it's a huge honor for me in an lucky break. So you're the only guy working during the pandemic. Base I mean I got a lot of time ads. Talks. Produce. What's the future movie theaters in your opinion? John because some you know New York we're all New Yorkers. So many of them have closed we've lost the now what what the movie going experience seeing an audience seeing a movie especially comedy with an audience in a group. Like it I mean, it's not they're not gonNa go away I mean people understand that it's an event and you're going for the event and a shared experience. Watching TV at home. It's not the same. We all know is not the same. You don't laugh out loud things don't hit you hard. It's it peters will come back as soon as the Kobe goes away think. So absolutely, absolutely I hope. The theaters who are going before the cove it. They are Cologne some some some but not the are still going I. Mean my son Bite. My my kids are always going to movie house. What do you think?

All three of US show funny when you said Al Hirschfeld and Nina I start looking at you in gun well, it could be in the mustache that hair. I. Is it. Nita. John. You work with so many legendary directors, Ridley Scott Gobert both worked for the lay Tony Scott by the way Tony Wha. What did it loved the human being just sad until life. Did, you throw up on him though. Yes doing this movie. I was a young guy and I was struggling in party. We were in Mexico City now drinking too much Tequila and. And I and I offered Chapel Lena's which is a Mexican delicacy called Fried, Grasshoppers And I too much and drank too much and the next day I like directing us come on John God gave rock and roll. You know how to jump bring it, bring it on like. A Gate I'm running and running and the cut and come back in and I'm like. Below the poor man and his hairy chest go Hilbert you did not throw up on Tony Scott. Would you made your Beverly Hills Cop Two? Yeah and that my experience with him was. Like in that scene because he kept doing it different each time they shot it and how he's stayed out of IT I. Absolutely. Yeah because a lot of directors that takes a lot of confidence in a director to let his actors have fun and know that that's going to make your movie better. Understand that you've also worked with spike, Lee and summer. Just work with Barry Levinson. Here all you had barry what. What a great artist we did this incredible movie just now called Harry half is a true story. Of A Jewish prisoner and outfits who fights who the Nazis make them fight other Jewish prisoners to the death. But he survives because they feed him and they protect them, and then he finally can escape and he comes to America and he fights rocky Marciano and I and I, and I I'm is fighting coach in America nine, hundred, forty, nine. Wow. All Two story to story great body of Work Berry Berry is this as opus magnum opus. About that masterpiece masterpiece. But this leads me to a question from a listener music and monsters calls himself will John Share anything about working with the late Great Jorge Romero. George. Hill. Marya. You know Cuban I know that yeah. Yeah. He's have Cuban hathaway from the Bronx. I always thought of him as a Pittsburgh Guy Right because he moved there and he stayed there but he's already told me he was originally from the Bronx and and I'll man land of the dead. I think his second to last feature. Here's his most expensive feature got twenty million dollars to do that one and the brother man he was incredible sixty nine years old he only drank coke coffee and smoke cigarettes no real food ever entered his body. and he's like Romero Romero was like. Every. Of of the ten thousand shows of the dead and and the movies it all goes back to him. And he doesn't get any money for it I mean if created, he invented a Zombie I mean th all that Zombie culture came from him how come he's not getting a piece of that. I don't understand how about diploma. Anything you can tell us about working. You did casualties of war when you were a young unproven actor and then obviously Benny Blanco. Yeah. Diploma was wild man I mean he was amazing. He loved he loves. Real tension in front of the camera. Like he loves shit to go down and. You, know we a bunch of young actors where we're in Thailand Stephen Baldwin was originally in it, and then he was fired and they cast Johnny Riley. This is casualties of war yeah. Yeah. Yeah Yeah, it was fun. was there something about you being slapped repeatedly? Oh well, there's a scene where Sean Penn.. He's a sergeant. You know like the what happens in the bore you guys start. Losing their morality start losing sort of the sense of who they are and. He, he wants his the cat it's based on a true story. The sergeant was rape this poor Vietnamese girl a of passage and and my character refuses. So Sean Penn's character asses slapped me submission. So we're doing this and and it's not going right and I don't know why because I face is out to here by now on the thirteen take I'm even talking like this now because I can't pronounce. This lot. With where I created the character and and at. Of Meat Meetings GonNa flat me one more time and I go cut I can't do this anymore and. It's not even in the movie, cut the scene out of the movie. Wow. That's sloppy and it's not in the in Charles slap in me for real because he's he's method to. And what was Michael J.? Fox like door with. Is a fun guy many. We play a lot of poker with him and he you know he was he was he's very different. You know like Penn is really intense and he and he was a sergeant twenty, four seven. So he was always like you know drilling us and and being tough guy and then Fox for the other hand you know he's this charismatic guy to hang out with you had a point on I refer back to the book again, you had a point your career where you said you were done playing roles that were physically taxing. Where you sort of had to, you were done trying to prove yourself as an actor spot spawn was apart like that. Yeah. I. Mean. There was a time where I was like you know it was too long food. With the Gender Bender, the blocking and all that stuff. Then it was spawn and I was like in a Basically this hellish costume. For like. Pick me up at four am in the morning to makeup on my face, which was glued glue to my face up to my eyeballs, and then they put chide normal contacts and fake teeth and the heat, and that thing was ridiculous and I was like, I can't do this anymore. I. I need to start doing roles that are more like me unless I don't have to run away from myself anymore. Gilbert did you ever have a role where you had to? You had to undergo that like prosthetic makeup e? Yeah. In fact that was sway when Barry Levinson on we talked about that we.

"Nah so I obviously I did more and then eventually we he was gonNA turn me into the producing trump have me like fired but he didn't oh boy and then you worth again with Pacino, and this time with Pacino N. Robert Deniro Righteous Righteous Kale. Yeah. That was that was that move is not so good. That's the one I read an article that that's the one movie that Deniro and Pacino. Both regret being and it's the first time they ever really appeared on camera because he Did they weren't together that was a double. Fashion, manufactured seen that restaurant scene. Not, the two of them that's. Wow I noticed it watching the movie. Yeah I said people are saying, Oh, you see the two of them together and I said there is not one scene and this movie that they're in the same frame right? Right. Right. Exactly. Right Gilbert. Boise's Pacino. Right Over his shoulder. But no fifty fifty of the two of them yet. That leads me to why Do I. Have this right Harvey Kotel came to see ghetto clown and told, Al you should go. He. Tells the best I mean the TRIFECTA. Pacino and we want get harvey here. All you got an harvey's best what a sweetheart man he's lovable dude and he came to see said I. Loved. I. Loved. This shows fantastic but al can't see it. And I get it I. Get it. You know nobody wants to hear like I. Mean I'm not being negative on the Al.. Respect for him, I was just talking about you know what happened with the two of us are egos clashed a little bit you know and and it was all healthy and good. You matter to be terrifying in that film to disappeared into that character all. Yeah. You know I was doing a lot of research I was hanging out with real drug dealers. Doing their rounds with them and in one of their brothers got shot now's like, wow, this is I shouldn't be here. This is really dangerous idiot an actor and I could get hurt really badly but I learned a lot man I learned from watching the guys. You know I. It's it's kind of mixed feelings for for these kids who who have all this great ambition, but yet are putting it through the wrong in the wrong kind of. Yes At which leads to a question our first question for Melissa owner. John. This is from Cliff Goldberg Blanco from the Bronx does he have one good Lewis goes month story Coups Monster I a lot of great Louisiana's my stories. I started doing this this Fox asthma to do my own version of a living color Oh yeah and I and I had been working with with Louis on on CARLITO's way. We had a lot of fun off camera goofing all the time and I said, Louis, would you come and do workshops with me? All. These actors we were trying to create a company for a house a Bucknell. And and I got Louis. Louis was was hilarious on the show. He's one of my favorites. Sarah so good and boogie nights. He was great. That was my role. I turned it down Dan Hold Jeez Sam. I told you, I'm an arrogant fool. Fernandez says when you work with Pacino and Carlito's way, his accent was at peak foghorn Leghorn. So Pacino because because for a while I mean he had that great voice but then eventually became like, I. Say I say Boy Your Chicken Hawk. Bar. It's so funny because I was watching Godfather to. where he barely moves his space and credit right and his voice doesn't go above a whisper but you know why that's he know Strasbourg was his coach to those years. Yes and he was one of the great acting teachers and if you have a coach like that, you're not GonNa make any mistakes and and talk about your experience. With lease grasp. Well come on lease is the godfather of you know great acting in America. I mean. Even though Brando disparages him, he did go through the through the Strasbourg Institute James Nin Pacino obviously such so many great great actors went through do there and so I was in the actors studio. And I'm I'm in. Class. In at least grasp his class you know Lee was it was very old. He talked very quietly and he hit his throat thing that he. He would little time. I do exercise recall the death, your dog and Recalling my dog dying and he goes to pretended to lab and I go what am I white Labrador I don't have labradors. Pit Bulls and I did my sense badly and he died that night. Act and killed. Him. Out They closed down the school and everything else I can't believe my acting killed him. I was that bad. Didn't. They say that that you're boring me. That's an old acting teacher technique to get you to do more. You take acting classes Gilbert. Well, if you've seen ending of my performance I. So I, take that as. John we've asked this question of a lot of actors and I'm going to ask you because I heard you say that you think stand up comedian sometimes make the best actors. Do you. Do you think do you think Gilbert could play dramatic role and pull him absolutely absolutely I. Can't get a a A. Actor to do comedy it's almost impossible, but you can get a comic actor to do serious acting. So you go gill. Especially especially, if they let them improvise let him be himself. He'll. He'll rocket another endorsement kill you got one Mellon Arkan. And one from John Leguizamo Alan. Arkin hate me the base complement anyone can say what is specially Alan Arkin. Guy was such a great actor and he said that he thought I would make a good Willy Loman. Yeah, yeah I could see that his salesman Broadway hearing calm. That brings me to a question about House a bug and Rob Martinez please ask John About how the bug and why Fox didn't give this hilarious show a chance. And why isn't streaming or on DVD? Well what happened was..

Generally very professional and good natured Steven Seagal. Man I mean, Stephen. It'd be with that. Guy. He's a piece of work unbelievable. I, mean we were doing this movie call. One hundred films I can't remember. it's with. Kurt. Russell. Joe Morton Oliver Platt executive decision their executive decision. Yeah. Yeah. So I was his executive decision with Kurt Russell and Steven Seagal and Steven Seagal in the first day of rehearsals starts going I'm in command. What I say is law you guys have to listen and I started cracking up thinking he must be joking, he can't have. A. Real Line I mean. I started cracking up like. and. He elbows the shit out of me Knox all the air out of me and I'm like why? And then and then he was supposed to die like the first ten minutes I was there. I was the first one to show up on the set to watch his imaginary death. which could try to pretend it was real. What what is up with that guy? I don't know he was he was difficult man. He didn't know his lines though should've laid. They WANNA come out of his trailer when he was supposed to die. Yeah. He hosted an infamous episode of Saturday night live that I don't think they're they're in a rush to repeat. He's he used to beat up stunt guys that was the stores have heard as as to yup stunt guys on purpose not care and finally once stunt Guy Supervisor said you WanNa fight my guys you're gonNA. Fight me and he put put him in a headlock and had him on the ground he goes next time one of my guys I'm going to hurt you bad while. He didn't respect people. He didn't have any respect can't come to a set and treat everybody like that killed you ever run into Steven Seagal. No but I remember one time on Saturday night live I forget the host. But they did a scene where took the hostess talking to Lorne Michaels and he says, Oh, I screwed up the beginning of the show. You must think I'm the biggest jerk to be on Saturday night live and Lor Mike a-x-i-o-s. No. That was Steven Seagal. Reputation Precedes Back John Do you remember Gilbert? For One sees of course Persia do oh Jeez Gilbert he came on it scene like a comet. Yeah I try to forget that sees. I'm not, GonNa, ask you about regarding Henry but. One thing because you talk about it in the book and how it's not that role was not one of your prouder moments. Regarding Henry came out. There were about three movies that came out at the same time regarding Henry was. You'll be a better person with a bullet. Yeah. And then there was one with William Hurt Cole. Doctor. That you'll be a better person if you get throat cancer. movie, the rape of so and so where Richard. Richard Beck yes. WHO's an COP will get trae. and. He's better person for it. So I guess I guess that there's a truth to that. Know. I mean, maybe you do come out better on the other side and It was the eighties man it was the eighty S. There was there was too much code going on. There is the one anecdote about regarding Henry in the book that the crew the crew took revenge on Mike Nichols. Hall. Rest in peace. I. Have huge respect us but he was. Very particular about everything and especially about his coffee and he wasn't always in a great mood and he you know he he was a top man. He was he gave a lot of tough love and he got he got it back because he complained about his cough. He's saying that it tasted like this cat piss I can't take this go make another one and the coffee back and back until they finally Pete in his coffee and they gave it to him. And he drank. He said it tasted better. Out. That one was for you. You don't the lesson is don't mess with the crew yes. You'RE GONNA search. You know that you know that. You can't you can't because they will do thanks to you. You will not live down. So because of parts like the the in regarding Henry because of stereotypical parts and you saw what was being offered, Latin actors, you decided to take matters into your own hands. Because he was in regarding Henry and I'm playing a Latin guy who's a shooter you know just demeaning and debasing and it just my only opportunity you know like all my other friends are going to ten or twenty additions a week, and I'm going to one audition every five months for something horrible and I was like wait a minute we all went to school together we all went to college together. Why do I have any I don't have any opportunities. So I realized that the playing field wasn't really fair I mean they weren't it is didn't see Latin talent as viable or didn't even write Latin Stories even though with the second largest ethnic group in America. And we've been here to the beginning of time We didn't get on the boat and at and so I decided to write my own stuff because I was like there's no to hear from me. So let me create my own and I started doing Mambo mouth and all of a sudden you know the Latin community found me and also had like. Sam Sheppard came to see my show Arthur Miller, I mean one of the great players of all time. Chino Raul Julia Lipid Dukakis. John Kennedy Jr. I mean they were in my house as well as all these Latin people finding being able to see themselves reflected back I mean. So it was a powerful moment. For, all of us you know it's a great success story too. I. Mean an actor doesn't like the roles that he's being offered and the situation that he's being presented with. So he decides to punch own ticket to to write a showcase for himself. Yeah. The rejection of Hollywood, help me help me reject Hollywood back. It's great. It's a great story and Franken I were talking about your experiences with Leonardo DiCaprio. and. What was he liked tour with as? I mean, he gets he gets three hundred percent pro three, hundred percent and even off camera and I had scenes to do with them as tipple. They're performing it as fully as when he was in front of the camera. Wow He's very loyal kid he's I mean he's a young man in his forties. was was nineteen back then. While we get, we gotta ask about Wong Fu. Ask Away and about about Rodriguez first of all the actual Rodriguez the Golfer sued the production yes, he did he. I'm a famous Golfer on respecting your your degrading. Trademark. By the. Task. Of creating a drag queen character I, write your name and Chichi Rodriguez right he julie.

"john leguizamo" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn

"John Leguizamo the actor works a lot I mean his IMDB page is closing in on one hundred fifty it was in Carlito's way the past the Ice Age movies to Wong Foo fighters and he is an electric screen presence that's not the only thing he does since nineteen ninety-one leg was almo has written and performed in a handful of theater shows award winning Solo shows like Mambo thanks a holiday and free they're all deeply personal and touching Larry's finds a way to talk about himself in the people in his life and sometimes even channel those people with remarkably sensitive touch his latest show is called Latin history for morons the title kind of explains the shows can see with a chalkboard Ah professor looking outfit leg was gives the audience a history of the Americas that you don't always see in textbooks since it's John leg was on so there are dozens of funny voices there are recreations of historical figures long since dead and it's all framed with a story about his life a few years back. His son was bullied over his lat next heritage at school called the slur leg was on a wanted to do something about it give him something to be proud of he talks about that incident in the show how it happened how it affected his son and as you're about to hear how it affected him I leave my therapist office with an untreated chronic case of ghetto rage timeout urban dictionary time or anybody who doesn't know what ghetto rages well it's the whole world keeps telling you that you're worthless and you fight these micro aggressions daily but when you start to lose that title you start drowning in this in this self loathing burning rage but but as a Latin man Ah Latman you can't even get angry because homeland security the ins all the police could decide you're threatened the next person to be shot or deported could you or me because Latin life is cheap in America those are pretty intense intro John come to Bullseye it's nice to have you on the show you having yeah that that that that's one of the most intense moments in in the night yeah mostly it's you goofy around in in Waving a copy of the open veins of Latin America around yeah yeah or or or in my underwear or yeah in my head of extended underwear sequence yes yes there is for those people who are fan of breaking bad and old men and their drawers but yet but that doesn't intense Um and there's a few of them but that one is sort of a call to what it's really like to be Latin America you were born in Colombia I grew up in New York City Jackson is yeah I was here since I was three yes so to what extent did you think of yourself as Colombian when you were a kid well you know you these feel like you're American until until somebody others you you're not I remember that when I was about eight or nine and I'm playing with some kids and I beat them at at stick ball and then you know then it would like you know once you go back to your country you suck and I was like wow realize you know and you go home and look at yourself Oh wow I'm I thought we were all the same but I guess I'm not you know and then you start to realize this these interactions keep continue to happen and feeling more and more other than you start oh wow I have I have I developed a different perspective of America because you no longer on the inside your kind of on the inside and the outside so it gives you a bird's eye view because you're forced to look at it from an outsider's point of view growing up you also had by circumstance a inside outside perspective because your family didn't stay in one place for very long right well yeah I guess the Typical Act here's sort of genesis you know like they'll always army brats or like myself you know I moved every year of my life until I was about fifteen and then started replicating that pattern later on in my life was that because of work or because of getting evicted or because it wasn't we weren't on the Lam who are the window that's witness protection program it was it was just my parents were improving their lot in life every year every year we started out in apartment where we all slept on the same bed and then the next year we moved to another place where would we had two beds and then when finally my parents had a room of their own and we slept in the living room then eventually my brother and I had shared a room you know just every year it improved till we had a house full of renters and they rented out every room in the house and made income that way but you know it made me have to force me to learn how to make friends real quick real fast and also same time since I didn't have sort of shared personal stories with anybody I always had this incredible urge to create my story to with somebody you know that I guess that's what made me want to write one man shows and to share my story my life because I missed that so much growing up you're listening to Bullseye I'm Jesse Thorn my guest John Leguizamo is an actor and writer his one person show Latin history for morons is currently touring across the country you can also stream it on net flicks you have an identity as a Colombian American did do was there did that mean anything to you in your life as a as a teenager a little bit a little bit I mean I mostly felt Latin because I was in New York City and all my friends were all Puerto Rican Dominican Ecuadorian to lay in our everything everybody was represented air so I just felt Latin I mean so that which was really nice because because I felt like I felt like a community I feel like we all speak Spanish we all have a little bit different food all kinds of similar anyway we dig each other's food we all dig south side and Madan Gay and we all house parties you know so that that was my sense yeah I was thinking of that as I was watching your show that you know growing up in California to be Latina L. meant for people in my neighborhood it meant to be Mexican to some extent Salvadorian and Guatemalan Central American and in New York the Caribbean as big let's power like I didn't know any Cuban people when I was a kid they mean like I probably knew ten south of my life when I was was a Cuban Puerto Rican girl I remember her well stuff but I mean she was stunning and she was she was.
