They used to be the sense of urgency. Like you have to do everything. And i think it's just gonna fall somewhere in between of like you might go to new york and do the today show to be in studio and see the crowd outside when that's allowed again but other things like yeah.

Yeah but if but if you go to their website it's all the different ones. They make they make like a single. Oh and double. oh what a triple. Oh and dreadnought and and they can make them with varying degrees of flight. Wear and tear jack normally. I'm against but actually looks really good. Yeah they just they just feel really they just feel really nice because the this martin i really enjoy but it because it's old it falls on a tune really easily and i'm always worried about like bumping it and so to have a new old guitars been really nice..

Why The 'Kevin Bacon' Factor Is Key To Understanding How COVID Spread In Nursing Homes
"In March, when the corona virus began racing through nursing homes. The federal government banned visitors. But Corona virus infections kept spreading. Professor Keith Chen tried to figure out why the people who we can infer work in this nursing home what other nursing homes do they work at Chen Study used anonymous cell phone data to help see the movements of people into and out of nursing homes. The data showed a lot of nursing home workers are like Martha working at more than one when you learned that over 20 of your workers are also spending time in other nursing homes, that should be a real red flag. Chen and his team found that on average, each nursing home is connected to seven other nursing homes. I also found the more shared workers. A nursing home had the more cove in 19 infections among the patients. Professor ELISA Long also worked on the study. There are some facilities In Florida in New Jersey, where they're sharing upwards of 50 to 100 workers again. This is over on 11 Week time period, but that's a huge number of individuals that are moving between these facilities. All of these are potential sources of coded transmission. The California Association of Health Facilities represents most nursing homes in the state. In response to the study, the group said they can't prevent workers like Martha Ta Pia from taking jobs elsewhere, and they can't pay them more because California doesn't pay them enough through Medicaid. But Mike Dark doesn't buy that argument. He's an attorney that works on nursing home reform. And he says the state already tried paying nursing homes more in 2006, that money tends to go into the pockets of the executives and the administrators who run these places. Instead, he says, regulators need to focus on the basics, especially in the roughly 100, California nursing homes with ongoing outbreaks. Right now there's poor access to peopie. There is still erratic. Compliance with things like hand washing requirements, and it's not just patients who are at risk. Nursing home workers like Martha Ta Pia are also contracting Cove in 19 in California alone. 152 of them have died since the pandemic began. For NPR News. I'm Jackie 40, a in Los
"kevin bacon" Discussed on Hello Monday by LinkedIn
"Hey it's Jesse coming at you again between Mondays with a bonus episode. Why well because Kevin Bacon got in touch? You know the actor Kevin. Bacon when I was a teenager. Some college kids made that game about him. Six degrees of Kevin Bacon movie buffs challenge each other to find the shortest path between any actor in Kevin like my producer for example Sarah Storm. She's also a working actor. Hey Sarah Hi Jessie Okay Sarah. Let's play okay. I know that you do TV and not movies but think broadly here. I'll be right. I don't know I love. I aspire I aspire to be what you were not so long ago which was a character on law and order. Svu right it a dream. Yup Yup Yup so I played this woman named Bronwyn freed. Okay so okay Bronwin yeah. Let's see if we can get from Bronwyn to Kevin so dean winters Prolific an amazing actor. You might know him from like the allstate mayhem. Commercials has also done a big stint on law and order. Svu He's also done a pretty big stint on one of my favorite comedies Brooklyn nine nine which also features curious Sedgwick Kevin Bacon incredible spouse and also frequent co-star amazing. So that would give you essentially a bacon number of three as I understand it. It strikes me. The connections are so much more than physical and it is the way that we are connected as humans putting our heads and minds together. That's GonNa stop all this so now Kevin's trying to use his name to raise awareness about the importance of staying home. If you can plenty of people from nurses. Two doctors to bus drivers have to go to work. They don't have a choice and we're grateful that they do because at the moment they're basically keeping the world turning but all the rest of us have to do our part to keep them safer. And what's that it's staying home hi. Kevin it's Jessi hempel host of. Hello Monday how are you well? Thank you Kevin. It's really great to speak with you but I have to start by acknowledging that we're speaking really challenging times and so I wanted to start by just asking if everybody you're with is okay right now. Everybody I'm with is okay right now. I got a nice text yesterday from a friend who had been tested. A new came back negative. So that made me That was my big news for that day Our circle is very very small at this point just in terms of who I'm actually interacting with in in any kind of physical work But I think that I I'm sure you've noticed that we are at a point where because we're Were so Stuck at home we we. We're kind of reaching out a lot of people that we haven't necessarily wouldn't necessarily speak to and checking old friends. That's been a real you know a little bit of Silver Lining. It has been a silver lining. The reason we're on the phone today is to talk about something that you're trying to do yourself to help with awareness around this important thing that we need to be doing right now. Which is staying home really started thinking about ways to connect six degrees Which is a foundation that I've had for many years to This idea of staying at home and someone came up with the I stay home for Hashtag and because of my connection to this. You know crazy game. That has been around for years because of the the issue of Social distancing versus connectivity. I seem to be a natural kind of fit for a Lotta years. I've been thinking about this this six degrees thing because when I heard about the game you know I sort of thought it was a joke at my expense and then it just didn't really go away and And I started thinking about the fact that you take me out of it which is really what this is all about. It's really never ever six degrees. Never really ever been about me. I mean I was a kind of a random choice that happened to be on a TV screen. When these these college kids were sitting around and came up with the idea of the guy who created that game which I've long loved. I think I was in college around the time that it was created. No I never knew them. No no no they were. They were College kids from I think it's all great college in Pennsylvania and now I I had nothing to I had nothing to do with it You really think that it just kind of appeared and you know this is before before social media so it was almost before even the idea of something I hate to even use this word but was before anything spread byerly. You know it was just a Was just as you know. Kinda crazy concept that people started talking to me about and I started to hear about it different. I heard about it on Howard Stern. I heard about it on this on the Jon Stewart show And and I thought Oh. This is kind of a nightmare because I thought that it was joke. You know that. Can you believe a loser like Kevin? Bacon can be you know Connected to all ingrates and in Hollywood history. But then I started thinking you know if you if you do take me out of it and like I said I mean I just don't think it's ever been about a. The concept is actually a really power one and that is that we are all connected and sadly With this is a tough way to learn that but this virus is really really good example of that not weeks ago he thought it was enough to just wash hands and looking forward. We have no idea what's ahead and I just think that one of the most challenging things about this for all of us is really sitting in the unknown in not being able to know what the next moments going to be like an only understanding that it's going to be that way for a while Can't think of anything else in my lifetime. That has caused me to become this comfortable with not knowing something. That's right but the tough thing to give yourself over to. I completely agree And and also you know we're people and society that tends to want to plan for the future and And we're now we're forced into a situation where we just have to take it one one day at a time and it's That's making things. Go feel Kinda slow. I don't know if they do for you but I I feel like time. It's hit along and I turn around and go. Jesus it's only been. It's only been a week I mean or or whatever it's been since I've been in You know in this in this kind of Version are my version of lockdown. So Yeah. This is a challenge. It's a challenge. I don't understand more about how your foundation works to connect people. Can you tell us more about that? you know my my foundation is always in a kind of changing morphing Situation when I was trying to put something together I was at a point my life years ago where I sort of felt like I needed to Get Out of my own Kind of self obsession about career all these kinds of things and I and I looked to Paul Newman and I saw what what Paul done with his food. And you know the fact that he liked to cook and and was then raiding hundreds of millions for different charities and selling this stuff and and I thought well what do I have that I'm branded with. And that's when the idea of six degrees kind of popped up and I really didn't know anything about philanthropic. I've been benefits and I showed up and then in auctions and all that kind of stuff but I'd never really been bob launching something called the rapidly. And frankly you know. I'm still kind of learning. I mean I feel like This is this campaign. It's hard to explain what we do but this campaign would be sort of a good example of of the of the concept behind six degrees. Did you ever go back to those two college guys? Who created that game and thank them for setting you on this course. Yeah well I had been in touch with them. I. I met them when John Stewart had a nighttime talk show and you know it was at first. I was like you know kind of like. I don't want to meet these guys you know. They've they've saddled with this terrible thing but then I saw that really that they were actually extremely. You know supportive and sweet and early like like my movies. You know what I mean. It was actually the training Kevin. They were actually they were actually says and and so I was like okay. I got a refrain this touch Through the years you know there was a moment when I've Well maybe there's a way to make a buck on this thing and you know and we had a board game and we had a a book but the truth is that the thing about the six degrees thing. Which is. I can't really think too many examples of this is it. It's not anything that you can hold in your hand you know it's just it's just an idea it's just a It's it's just a concept and that's one of the things that I think is so interesting about is It's not it's not tangible. It's almost like a a strange kind of the philosophy of of the connectivity of human beings and like I say it's never been about me It's always been about us as a as a as a planet. Well I think it is more than a philosophy. It's also a sense of comfort that the whole idea gives you that you can actually trace yourself to whoever you're around whether you know them or not whether they live near you or not somehow.

You know. There's nothing we if you think about it. I started a charity. Six degrees dot org <hes> based on the idea because i said to myself if you take me out out of it it's kind of a beautiful concept that was because we are connected. Just the things that we do here affect people on the other side of the world the things that we do in our neighborhood would affect people down the block you know and also that the human beings social media is the reason i think one of the reasons that it's so huge ages that it's actually about connecting people start talking about facebook i can i can get in touch with all these people that i've and that's what that is getting connect you and talk about you. Know people are constantly looking for connections. If you have two guys in they're stuck in an airport and you know they've. They've missed their flight. You know and they'll start a conversation and the conversation will come around to to how they're somehow connected for. Exactly my sister's cousin lives dallas.

Yeah and i actually feel like there's a there's an element of of you know not to get technical better but there's an element of because there's so many platforms and because the series are so much shorter traditionally actors would make deals where they were exclusive to a certain certain network and personally. I think the acting community needs to push back against that because i don't think that if you you do a part on one network netflix or showtime or whatever it happens to be hulu and you only do you you know six or seven episodes ten episodes of something that they should be able to stop you from going. I mean somebody needs to be in first place in terms the scheduling and you know what i mean because you sign a contract and you need to put that at the top but i think sometimes the idea of being part of the you know the fox six family or having this is kind of an antiquated thing because and i also think that a lot of people watch content now and that actually quite sure. Where were they watch it. I don't know if this ever goes like i forget all the time. I was watching a show last night. I put the puck go to pull it up on each netflix showtime time on so many places to launch to your point. The thought of ten shows right ten episodes that have exclusivity over the next three eight.

"And we work together for a long time and somebody once asked and what's the hardest thing you've ever had to do his entire career and he said make kevin bacon look like a basket. We need to set up a game because i think i've heard similar stories about got wesley. Know who's in who's in cancun yeah. Yeah wesley couldn't play aspel either yeah that was in the head to teach them as well so it's like. We need to all star game actors that don't actually play bass not going to happen. Yeah i can play listen isn't you're entering five almost six decades right of being an actor. You're early on. It seemed like it was a big taboo for the college. The robert deniro's anthony hopkins to go sit on johnny carson's couch or david letterman because they want to be seen in paid for in the big screen. <hes> today is come so far you see we'll smith hire hire an army of people and double donald social media and youtube and it's just like really interesting to think how far the industry's come <hes> you sit on both because you've been around for so long longevity. Where do you sit on that. <hes> you know i think one thing that's kind of interesting to me. I was thinking about this. The other day is that among monte social media to assert certain extent and one of the things that social media. I remember a very very long time ago. In twitter i came out of ashton kutcher sure set to cure and i ran into him. Someplace very remember very very early of twitter. He said you need to this. Is this new thing it's called twitter you defy your publicist sorry and and we were like we didn't i didn't really understand that and then it became a thing where people what was interesting about it was that people wanted to share little pieces of their real lives and it was a way in for for us to kind of see celebrities in their realize not in this situation not on johnny carson not wearing makeup not doing doing when you're all dressed and doing your nice thing but now i think its kinda. Come back full circle and i think people are using it or think of it more as an element of publicity so the photos what is that they take care of them and the things that they use are now. They're no longer really insights into into people. Some people still handle it in that way but it's really more about <hes> just another advertising platform for yourself yourself your brand your look you now and they're very very specific about it so that that piece of it is is fascinating to me. You know from a from a from a business standpoint airport. There was a time when i looked at some actors who would make their mark bye bye. I liked the narrow you know john pad by not doing interviews for by keeping their lives <unk> out as a as a sort of a mystery and now had a really like positive like affected a lot of it..

They kinda fucked me. It was kind of like a little bit of a you know and that was a perfect example of what i was kind of. You you know got going through and my s- kind of conflicted feelings about celebrity about star of course now it killed to get on the company right so i mean i reading up on everything your entire career. You actually said that was kind of from footloose until j._f._k. There was not a slum but ah a time where you might have been fighting as a few turkeys in there right so how did you how do you bounce out of something like that. How do you like iran. Obviously knows to get out of slumpy. Gotta just get up there and keep hacking. What do you do if you're an actor. Will i think that i i that's that's. That's one thing is that you have to be willing to just keep you know. I like to say that there is no no secret to longevity. Longevity is a secret. It's that thing you just keep throwing that shit against the law you know and and sooner or later somebody it might say well you know i always liked that guy right and and <hes> and and so i didn't really have a choice right right because i didn't really want to do anything else and and then with the with the j._f._k. Thing which is one of the few times that i really felt like like you mentioned about the foot loose. I felt it like right away j._f._k. I felt that right away to as a turn as a as a as a shift like i said as a character actor because i had lost track and the problem with the movies mostly after her footloose is that they're not they're movies for movie stars <hes> they need to they need to be anchored by a true movie star. You know the guy that can just you know get away with the three gs. Which was the gun the girl and the good lighting. That's all he needs and you're gonna wanna watch it. You know oh you don't want to watch him like that's not me you know so so the so those movies needed a movie star anchoring them and it wasn't working for me <hes> because they because they weren't characters that can really get my head around. They weren't like they weren't deep enough complex enough or or specific enough or you know whatever that was had this agent at the time great age and <hes> <hes> who said to me. I knew your work from a theater off broadway off broadway in new york and that was a lot of character work that i was doing and she said we gotta find you something like that and after we had that conversation the first thing she sent me out on was was j._f._k. And it was an she represented oliver. I don't know if she called him and said what do you think about this and he was open to the idea idea when you few good men one of my favorite movies of all time which is watched the entire family just a few weeks ago when your agent gives you a script and you're looking at jack nicholson. You're looking at demi moore. Tom cruise kevin bacon. You you say like holy shit. This is a camp fail and be enjoyable. And what lessons did you learn from working with such great cast members.

"Someone once asked me how many jackson you can the idea my lot correspondent damage hsieh yeah okay so so so i ah this character to me. It's like sometimes the decision is whether or not i hear the voice like i hear his voice not unlike trippy kind of you know spiritual way but but but i can the rhythm is there in the writing and i'm here in what i might you know do with it and i start to see him and i start to think about the war. Can the clothes stupid mustache that i don't wanna wear for six much of the year but you know what i mean. It's it's it's it's who he is and you know. This was just an undeniably fun part yeah. When you sit there and e you talking about this character <hes> uh-huh you must be conflicted because you probably say i cannot believe crazy shit this guy things in the fact that he's so smart and well read makes them even more dangerous but but as a viewer first of all i cannot wait to watch this. I need another great show to watch but as a viewer would i sit there. Watch you and cheer for you because because sometimes or just totally against you. I'm not going to tell you what good cheer from. I think there's a lot of people honestly that are going to see in my first scene and turn the t._v. off and kill a dog no no but i am a unabashed racist. The language that i use is completely hateful and inappropriate <hes>. I'm fucking around on my wife on the coke head. I'm an alcoholic. I mean the list is just endless. What would he drink. I drink drink mostly brown liquor but a terrible red sock fan of course. He's a red sox. Yeah yeah no no. This is very very boston. Centric this this show yeah. You're going to have tough time. I'm trying to think if we actually even oh they're yeah there's all kinds of all kinds of sports jerseys and there's all kinds of stuff but what <hes> sounds excited about this. Well listen. I mean i feel like you know to me. I don't ever think about whether or not people without my characters are going to reflect personally on me because because to me that's not that's not acting you know to me. You're not a real actor. If you're worried about things like i wanna be sympathetic doc i wanna be well liked you know then you're a personality which is okay but to me. I just wanna put stay true to the reality of the people that i'm that i choose to play and if if you find in yourself if you define if you were to find yourself rooting for this character then i kind of feel like that's on you you right. There is an extremely here roic character. That's played by this hodge which is really the other main part of the show and he's very easy to root for. I'm bob this matt damon and ben affleck this project. It really came from an idea that that <hes> that ben pitched to our writer chuck mclain and <hes> chuck a very very good writer young extremely talented smart writer with a tremendous amount have knowledge of history boston history and crime and politics and all kinds of stuff going way back and he just kind of ran with it uh-huh so i wanted to start kind of at the beginning because this podcast we talk a lot to we talked successful people and how they got to where they are whether happy sometimes they failed and pick themselves up so the start your story i found was interesting at seventeen. You already knew what you wanted to to do. Business and it wasn't what your father did. It was to come to new york and try to make it in the acting world. Is that just something that was when when did that get stuck in your head head. When did you get that dish..

"It's called city on a hill it premiers on showtime it star studded. You're not only acting in it but you're also <hes> a co executive producer correct and i'm excited for this i was i watched a little trailer. You have <hes> basically everything you want. It's like boston new york. A bunch of robbers copse crooked cops did you did you see this happening like this is basically the perfect script yeah i mean and and an amazing character and it's one of those ones that is kind of <hes> the wasn't really on my radar. Nobody really spoke to me about it. It's it's one of those jobs that you get and you said <hes> who fell out because they were like you know. Here's the script were shooting in a month right. This is the first thing i do is really somebody must've fallen them about who that was but and i looked at the part and it's just <hes> such a such an interesting parties really really bad. He is just pretty much which everything every time he ever seen he. Does you go really jack character jackie really jackie. You're really gonna go that far. He's corrupt. He's on the take. He's he's working. He's working so many angles and he's also extremely verbose verbose so he just never shuts up and he's really really well read so that he's constantly quoting people that i i. I don't even know these people that he's gone and so you know when you take on a t._v. Show it's it's not like a movie because if you're gonna take a movie on you say well. Do you know take a take a swing at it the works i'll be onto the next thing you know. That doesn't mean it. Can it can take its toll on your career after a while but a t._v. Show you have to think yourself. Do i really wanna be playing this part from the next seven years because that's the length of the contract contract to sign on and i had done some guys few guys kind of like in a row oh that were much more internalized characters you know they were troubled and men of few words and and and just just smaller kinds of performance. Oh i looked at this. I thought okay here's a chance to kinda bust out again and and do some big and fun and i'm having a blast so there's a lotta things i wanted to go off of that. Just that beginning because it's very interesting and i want to get into your whole career rear <hes> from the beginning but reading for a part or reading apart like what how how what's the process of deciding okay. This is something i wanna do because one of the most interesting interesting parts of your career i think is you do you do it all leading man smaller part whatever it is you're kind of interchangeable where you can go your ranges so so like large. What is it that you when you read a part. That's what i wanted to well. You know you mentioned leading man in a funny kind of way. I don't think i've never never really been a leading man. I think i'm a character actor. You know and the only way that i can kind of think about jobs is by character. You know i gotta go. Is this someone who's shoes. I feel like i can walk in and is it similar to something. Thing that i've recently done or is it. Is it news a fresh like have i never been by. God played a lot of f._b._i. Agents fact played this is like my third or fourth f._b._i. Agent i'm from boston also a lot of characters jack right yes e- parody apparently that's what somebody told..

"It <hes> it you're absolutely right the thoughtfulness and the big picture mindset that he's had is why i think he stuck around for so long because you see in hollywood all the time you guys don't have you know careers. It lacked stretched thirty plus years and that's what kevin bacon has done and he's got a new. You show right now showtime. You can actually go binge it. All we tape this before the show released into. It's actually nice. We knew that all the millennials listening to this episode. We knew they couldn't watch it week to week because they have short attention spans and now you can binge the whole thing <hes> all right so my question for you on this one were sloppier career. I would say it was two thousand and six and dan what was the problem with that slump. It was both sides of the ball. Usually have a slump is either hitting or fielding. I couldn't fucking field or hit and i was miserable and i just felt terrible and that was the week where i decide to take my little baby girl natasha and cynthia to central park and i'm so fucking take off my shirl. That's the week and then yeah. I get photographs and that day i make three errors. I think it was against the white sox three errors. So of course it was like the next three days a rod. Oh you stink. You can't hit your suntanning. What are you doing massage in central park all right. So what do you do when you're in a slump like that. What would would you have done <hes> back then. I think you have to slow it down and you have to start visualizing and you know i'm kinda guy that when i struggle i want to do more four but i now have pulled back and just pull back. Take the breath trust your talent and then start taking rewards in little bites. You know if you're in the regular life that means making your bed. That's a win trying to do that five days in a row for me and hitting it was take a walk. Try to get a base hit the other way think think really small. Maybe a bit hard contact hard contact. You know don't worry about the results. Worry about the process and what you find is that when you think really small really bad things happen. Would you let people talk to you like in the clubhouse. When if you come off the field in your you know maybe let's say over four three strikeouts and i'm your teammate and i'm mike hey man that was good. That was good swing good cut. Would you shut up. No it was actually a pretty good sport. I wasn't like paul. O'neil he would like bam right ain't right. I actually wanted to do that most of the time he probably fell. That's why he was so happy to just take his anger right. I try to do the opposite. I try to be too cool for school and i was crying inside died but outside. I was like okay yeah over four yeah. I'm good dying inside. Yes so <hes> kevin bacon lot lot analogies to that with his career and talking about that little time where he had a slump. He didn't feel like he was making it. In hollywood before we get to kevin bacon are friends from one more thing. I'm a bacon yeah is i love what he said about his marriage and i think people are gonna learn a lot about as evidence of his great marriage. Yeah it's kind of a thought it's a thought proc- had for his entire her career for everything for his the way he lives. His life is just big picture and i love talking to people like that. Who don't see it. You know day to day. They see hey. This is a year ear. Ten years is the whole big thing got going on <hes> okay before we get to the interview our friends from lincoln. We're going to get some people some jobs just from listening into this episode so if you are an employer you need to be on lincoln and if you're an employee or someone who's looking for new job you need to be on lincoln because because we are still sports have a bunch of <hes> job listings on linked in.

"Let's twelve hours you and the other guy I think my mom talking so she went as well all right all right excellent so it wasn't a hip a bit grew following. It was a time when the video thing is really coming a lot. Yeah and everybody was like super super into <hes> blockbuster renting movies and there were these kind of movies that took off and had their own life yeah just on video and that was one of them and do what other movies of yours which you say that applied oh probably <hes> <hes> a good question was flatliners a hit in the theater. I think flat letters did pretty well in the theaters but probably took off a little a bit more on video by the way I should. I should've prefaced all this by saying. We're going to be mentioning a lot of movies and if there are ones that you're unfamiliar with don't <hes> you should just see them because these are all great yeah that we're referencing not ones that I've done I and I in fact saw I had never seen she's having a baby. I started watching that and I love your work. I love John Hugh that did better on that that was much better on video than was on <hes> <hes> in the theaters at so. It's it's really good and I was proud of that one. I've said it was good and you carry that movie with Elizabeth Montgomery. She's so she's so charming and got an a young Alec Baldwin Right Alex First Movie. It was yeah no kidding that was first movie. It's so weird to see him with young face but he's still smoking chimney and he's still got this kind of grizzled added. Yes <hes> I don't know when it became a part of the Zeitgeist but six degrees of Kevin Bacon is is something that a lot of people play because and I think there's a misconception that that game six degrees Kevin Bacon exists because the diverse roles you've played and and the diverse projects take just a fluke. I think these guys just saw my picture my they they were watching it in their coq college dorm room and and one of my movies was on and they just said let's let's play six degrees at Kevin Bell. Really you know the origin of I do yeah yeah yeah. It's it's three guys <hes> they. They were at the college in <hes>. I'm trying to think of the name of the school is someplace place in Pennsylvania and they're just hanging out and they kinda came up with this idea and I it was probably one of the first things that really spread in a viral kind of way you know <hes> this is ninety s ninety early nineties mid early mid nineties and and I thought was you know I was Kinda. Horrified by the idea because I thought it was a joke at my expense this guy's such a douchebag and but you can connect them to Laurence Olivier Livia you can connect and act can can connect sort of like a loser actor like to some of the greats in history and and that's the thing that wrong and so so when I what you're such a random actor yeah that was l.. I never <unk> yeah have very little I think to do with me specifically <hes> other than just seen my my picture they're also rhymes with separation doesn't sort of Kevin Bacon separation. Hey Kevin Bacon sales in anything that and then I met the guys and they were great. They were sweet and it was all who's all good. It is easy to play. We were planning out here. We were like we weren't playing it but we the movie forrest gump came up. All of a sudden got paranoid that you would walk in to the studio as we were talking but forrest gump and then I realized like Oh wait. You weren't in forrest gump now which surprised me because it's not so much the number of things you've done. It's the that's what I mean. It's the quality it's the it's the things you've done. It's the so many of them are we're talking about. The now tremors flatliners footloose name so many of them <hes> were our movies that people no and I think that's what's rare and that may be is what's separate that and they have very big casts so yeah which means that there's more chances to be connected..

It was to not gush as much as I wanted to so you met him. You worked with him worked with them recently for the first time I got my one degree with him on a funnier die short that he directed called a duck walks in. It's about out this love scene that Kevin Bacon is directing that involves a duck and it was such a surreal thing because part of it was so Kevin which is always a weird thing when a director has to choreograph like a sex in <hes> and in this case Kevin like got into the bed with me and started going through all these sexual positions and it was so it was funny and it was really fun <hes> but at one point I was like Whoa Kevin Bacon can is like lunging at me missionary. I have my legs spread open. Monash news is crazy. GotTa see this. Oh I did like reverse cowgirl on him. I wish you guys had seen how Justin's head cocked proudly proudly as you said Cowgirl Nerdy exhales yeah it was really was so fun and like there must have been so surreal it wise you because the way you have known him for so many years and Oh oh my God my idea of him as when I was a kid was that he was definitely cool because he was like starring in these cool movies flatliners and like a lot of movies that I couldn't watch too so even like she's having a baby. We weren't allowed to watch that. We were movies about babies yeah yeah but one of our favorite movies was one that is like a tradition in our family to watch every Thanksgiving is planes trains and automobiles.
