A highlight from Re-Release: Vasek Pospisil on Tour Life, The Need for a Player's Union, & Working His Way Back To Form
"Welcome to the official tennis .com podcast featuring professional coach and community leader, Kamau Murray. Welcome to the tennis .com podcast. I'm your host Kamau Murray, and we have officially entered my favorite part of the tennis tour. And that's the summer hardcore swing in the Americas. And there's two words that come to my mind when you think about this swing. Number one, momentum. And number two, pressure. You look at people who do well at the US Open and they always build momentum at these events, whether it's DC, Toronto, Montreal, Cincinnati. I think the way that these tournaments are placed on the calendar being back to back with high level 500 level events and 1000 level events. I mean, you don't even have to win the events, but having a set of good wins at these level events really positions you to play well at the Open. If you look at the people who have won US Open, they have always built a lot of momentum for themselves in this swing. We saw Coco Gauff win DC. Could that be the start of what we as American tennis players are hoping for? And that is the eventual Grand Slam title out of Coco. And my God, would it be great to have it happen at what I consider to be the Super Bowl of our Slam, the US Open. But I also think about the pressure. I think about a city like DC that has eight to 10 pros on tour, male and female. And it's always interesting to see, A, how they love playing in front of the home crowd, but B, to see who holds up to the pressure of playing in front of the home crowd. And then you take a trip to Montreal and Toronto, and you think about Andrescu, Bouchard, Ronis, Fernandes, you think about all these players. And it's always interesting to see who holds up to the pressure of playing at really the only the biggest tournament on the calendar happens to be in Canada. And that is their one time to shine, where you look at Americans, you know, you got India, you got Miami, you got US Open, you got Cincy. We've got multiple opportunities to sort of have a good run with Canadians. This is their one shot. So it's always interesting to see who emerges from the pressure. If I had to say who was building the most momentum for themselves right now, I would have to say it's Atlanta Spitalina. The way she's come back, even in her losses, the quality of her losses, a three set loss to Pagula, who's had a great two year run on tour. And then Chris Eubanks. Chris Eubanks has been playing lights out tennis, has built positive momentum for himself before Wimbledon, during Wimbledon, a couple good wins in Atlanta, a good win in DC, and a tough three set loss to Monfils. So those are the two players that I would say are building the most momentum for themselves entering the swing. Ironically, our guest today is Vashik Paspasil, a Canadian known for his doubles, but mostly known for his leadership. Very vocal about unionizing the tour for tennis players, fighting for equal pay, fighting for more share of the pay versus the promoters in the events. And trying to sort of elevate the players' earnings to be closer to what players of other sports earn. Let's take a listen to who Vashik had to say. Welcome to the tennis .com podcast. I'm your host Kamau Murray, and we are here with a leader on tour, a very vocal player with a high tennis IQ, which is a high IQ for life. And how to grow the sport, a favorite in the locker room, and a Canadian superstar who, you know, honestly was leading the charge years ago when Canada was starting to bubble up. You came here and Vashik, Vashik, Vashik, Milos, and then Dennis, right, and you know, and Dresskew, but you know, you were at the start of that. So Vashik Paspasil, welcome to the show, brother. Hey, thanks for having me. If half those things are true, then, you know, I'm afraid it's far. Being a coach, you know, we sit there on our phone for a long time while y 'all get massages and y 'all are in the locker room just talking shit. So we hear a lot of incidental conversations. So everything that I said is true. You are a favorite in the locker room, and well respected, you know, it's like sitting on my phone on WhatsApp one day and hear people say, I love that dude, Vashik, he's so damn smart. You know, that's what the players say about you. Well, that's good. That's good to know. So you definitely got a career in management and tennis management after this, right? Because everyone wants a piece of your brain. So let me ask you this. Your story is so interesting to me because of just how you merely, you know, came to Canada. So I spent a lot of time in Canada, in Toronto training, etc. And what amazed me about Toronto is how everybody there is not from there. It's just, it's like amazing that I think of 10 people, maybe you meet one that's actually from Canada, right, and didn't migrate there. So tell me about how you landed there. Tell me about, you know, the roots from the Czech Republic. Yeah, yeah, definitely. I mean, Canada is a country of immigrants, some, you know, more recent, and some, you know, a couple generations. But I was actually born in Canada, so I'm one of the ones, I came to Canada as anyone that was born there would, you know, through my mom's womb. But my parents actually, yeah, my parents escaped the communist regime in Czech Republic back in 88 with my two older brothers. They spent a year in Austria working under the table, I mean, just trying to like survive, I guess, or just, you know, save up enough money to come to Canada. And because my uncle escaped a couple years prior and he was already in a small town in Vernon, which is where I ended up growing up, where I was born. And so my parents finally, you know, they saved up enough to come to Canada, and then I was born a year later. And then, yeah, and then there's a whole, you know, the whole tennis journey began pretty quickly. I mean, ever since I can remember, right, as soon as I started walking, I pretty much had a tennis racket and my dad was a huge, you know, I guess, extremely passionate about the sport. He, you know, was more of a recreational player, I guess, when, you know, in Czech Republic just played for fun. But when he came to Canada, he just became incredibly passionate about it and was, you know, watching tennis on TV, reading magazines on how to coach, reading about just became, you know, a tennis nut and started coaching my brothers and wanted one of his kids to be a professional player. So I guess that's kind of just, you know, how it started and yeah, here I am, I guess, 27 years later from when I first started playing. Now talk about, you know, escaping Czech, because I've heard stories of like your dad just being a straight up G, just driving through the border. Like, you know, just driving through border protection and control, like not just like, oh, he escaped. He just gangstered his way through the border. Yeah, I mean, I wish my dad was here to tell you this story because it's pretty incredible. I've only ever heard it from his mouth a couple times, which is really surprising when you think about it. But yeah, he basically, I mean, they didn't tell their family or anything. They couldn't, right? So they had to be extremely secretive about that. And yeah, I just packed up the car with my two brothers in the backseat, my mom in the front and just went to the border. And I mean, the way he kind of explained it was, you know what, he didn't really even have a plan. He just kind of rolled up to the border. He was in one of the lanes for, you know, I guess the average people are trying to cross the cross. And then there was like a special lane for special passports, which had a gap in it. And he just said, OK, I'm just going to go right through it. So he basically just went to that lane and he put up the passports and covered the logo, because I guess they had like a special sticker or logo or something on the front of the passport and didn't make eye contact with the border patrol agent. So he just put up the passports, kept looking forward and the guy was yelling at him to stop and he just kind of drove through. And at that point, you know, they have machine gun towers and all that. And back then they would shoot cars, right? That would do that. And I guess just, you know, I guess they didn't know who my dad was. I guess they don't want to shoot someone that, you know, potentially could be a super important ambassador or something. You never know. Right. So I guess they just kind of let him through. And he was looking in the rearview mirror and they didn't come after him. And that was that was that was kind of it. But there's a lot more to the story. I mean, this is that, you know, there's that's for like a two hour conversation with the 32nd overview summary. So you talk about, you know, his role in your tennis, right? Your dad had this dream amateur tennis player, nothing special. But like I put him in the category of the Richard Williams, you know what I mean? The other the other parents who just sort of read books, watched videos and figured it out. And, you know, when I was a kid, one of the things I used to dread was the hour drive home after a bad practice for a bad match. Right. And so it was like, so I know your dad's famous for, like, long drive, right, driving. So tell me about the time in the car. Yeah. Post practice, post tournament with your father. Yeah, he was definitely he was pretty fiery, pretty intense. I mean, you know, he toned down a lot kind of as he got older, but he's the most amazing person, like most biggest heart ever. And yeah, we had for sure. It's not easy when your dad is your coach. And obviously my dad is super passionate. And like you said, there are, you know, parallels for sure to the to the Richard Williams story. I mean, I saw I actually saw King Richard. Yeah. A couple of weeks. I was really late to the party. But what an unbelievable movie and story. But yeah, I was just thinking back like my dad doing double shifts and and, you know, working overnight. And whenever he was home, we'd be on the court and then and playing on these cracked high school public courts, obviously in a much safer environment. But but yeah, I mean, it was it was a lot of hard work and a lot of passion went to it. Right. For the same reason. So just kind of a lot of energy. And then if you're not playing well, I mean, you know. Right. So I think my dad was if we I think, you know, if I didn't have a good attitude or if I or if I just kind of was like not dialed or something, you know, he wouldn't he wouldn't necessarily be too happy about that. So so I definitely dreaded the the the car rides back after like a bad practice or a bad match. I mean, for sure. I think everyone with with dedicated parents that kind of really want their kids to succeed and kind of project that passion. You know, it's not anything I think that's a large reason. You know, the main reason as to why I became successful was was how much energy and and, you know, commitment my my dad and my sacrifice that my my family made. But, you know, specifically my dad, how much he put into, you know, developing me and my brothers and wanting me to be a success. And so, you know, as tough as it was at times, I mean, it was I'm so grateful that that, you know, that things were tough. I mean, I worked super hard and, you know, we went through a lot together, but we have we have a bond. Very long answer. Sorry, but we have we have a bond now that that obviously is super special because we our relationship is amazing. And, you know, he he's a really smart guy and he he. Yeah, he just, you know, we we did the best of what we had and I think he couldn't have done anything better and I couldn't have asked for for anything more. You look at the story of most pro tennis player, and there's always a parent that pushes, you know to me like if, if this my theory right being a coach right having an academy. If you leave it up to the kids, they'll sit down, they'll sit at the crib and like, watch TV play video game play with toys that kind of thing. So it does take a mildly insane parent to be the driving force, and to keep coaches honest right because, you know, even laid back parent is not watching you kind of like passing the time milk in the hour, but if you have a parent that like, no, I need some, I need some results out of this. Then it's like, oh, now you bring your a game right so without that force. You don't make a pro tennis player, period, point blank. Exactly. I mean, I, yeah, and it's hard for people that haven't gone through this process, like you and I are just within Tesla to understand this because it's like okay well the other sports you can start later and this or you know kids all I'll let my kid decide what he wants to do like, yeah, that's great. I mean, that's one way to do it but I mean, and it might be, you know, there's no one path for everyone and you hear that a lot like people, you know that's that's but, but I will say that, you know, when you're when you're a kid, when you're a kid I mean you don't know what you really you don't like it's you need some kind of direction like you said I mean if you're just like okay I'm going to do what I want. Like okay I'll go play soccer for a bit I'll go play hockey I'll go play video games with my friends and okay I'll get my homework done but, but really like the more time you spend at a young age on your craft, and it's even more so important tennis because you need to learn the technique and the skill and the, and like the hand eye coordination the ball control and just general, you know, perception on on on the court and reading the game and. So the more time you spend there and so, so again because there's so many variables so many different aspects that sport. I think it's so critical to spend a lot of, you know, from a young age, more so than maybe some other sports right so, but like you said, I, I'm a very strong believer that, you know, if you don't have that, that one, at least that one person from a young age that's that's kind of like, you know, keeping you on track or kind of pushing you in a good way of course then it, then, you know, it's not impossible, obviously, but I think the odds of succeeding are, you know, quite diminished at that point. Yeah.

"Consideration about Steph's history, Steph's greatness, that will only continue after a game like this. The Finals MVP talk is only going to intensify from here. Maybe even if the Celtics win, at the step has been so far in a way the best player in this series. I'm open to the argument he should win even if they lose the theories. This is an incredible moment for him. I think we're going to keep spiraling that theme for the next week or so. Yeah, it feels like, because now we have three more days until game 5 in this feels like the Steph referendum of which is so funny for the people who were there the whole time. Like me. Where is it? Wait a second. Steph Curry is one of the most unbelievable parts of ever seen. He did, this is the last thing he needed, though, assuming, you know, let's say they win the best two of the next three, they win the title. This was the last piece for him. He already did a great career. They already won the MVP, but he didn't have that signature Hakeem in 94, 95. Bird in 86, where you're just like so clearly the dominant guy in a playoff run. It's the last thing for him. Now it's sitting there for him. And the thing about him and rob, you're in the bay and you've obviously spent some time around the team. I do think he thinks about this stuff and I do think he's aware of it. I think some of these guys are either blissfully unaware, completely unaware. But I think Steph's like a student of the game. I think he came into the game as a real basketball fan. He grew up as the son of a player. I think he gets it. And you know, I'm not saying that's propelling him to do heights. But I think he understands what this means. There's always that little asterisk of the KD, the two titles, or in 2015, the only reason you won is because this happened and they blew game 7 at home in 16, this kind of needs this one, right? This is like the Will Smith king Richard Oscar without the violence. Well, I needed a laugh on that one. I made a king Richard joke. I feel like you're laughing about it.

"I mean that, I don't mean that in any sort of judgmental way at all. It's just who the guy is. You know, the mover and the shaker. Brother, he is always going to be trying to convince you of something and get to do something for him. And that's where he is. You know, I think the things that were the most helpful for me was really getting to know guys from the gun trace task force. Guys that served with him, the aggressive unit playing close flex unit. Police officers that are really across the country right now kind of getting disbanded. And I'll say, I got to know so many people, you know who are victimized and brutalized by this man. And there's no words for that, man. You know, to be brutalized in victimized by police corruption or police brutality is, you know, there's no words for how awful that is. There's people who have been beaten physically, people have lost their lives, people have lost their freedoms. People's Fourth Amendment rights have been violated, you know, on a daily basis by guys like Wayne, but there's a whole other group of victims. And those are the good courageous honorable members of police force. And there's a lot of people who take an oath and take a lawmaker's oath and they police with integrity and they care about the community that they police. And I met a lot of these guys whose careers were completely upended. Their lives were completely upended just because they had proximity to wane. And I become extremely close with those guys. And I feel like those were the folks that, you know, that's why I learned the most from Wayne. I mean, I got to know Don step really well to who's the drug dealer that Wayne was selling stuff, you know, selling his drugs with, you know, that he would confiscate or steal off the street and then he would go sell it with a drug dealer that he grew up with and Donnie had just gotten out of prison. He had to wear an ankle monitor, but I talked to a federal judge, and we got a deal that he was allowed to leave his house just as long as he was with me, which, you know, if you had asked the John Berkeley 20 years ago, that sounds completely fucking insane, but that's what it was, but Donnie was extraordinarily helpful. And look, I think anytime you do a story like this, that is really, really danford is to tell the truth. Everybody does have an angle. Everybody wants their character and their story to sort of come off in a certain way. And I always kind of keep that in mind, but it was great to kind of be able to have the infrastructure and the runway with this. You know, to really spend three months before we shot going on right along every day and every district going on drug rates for the Baltimore S.W.A.T. team and you know I met some great people made some Friends for life. Well, I mean, you're a psycho with this stuff. So is David Simon. You guys must have loved each other. We did. I mean, look, him and George, I do love those guys. I mean, we also bumped heads because, you know, I learned things that I felt like they didn't know. They were stuck on things that they felt like, you know, we care. And I think that anytime you really, really care, you're gonna bump heads, and I think that's healthy. And that's great. But, you know, you mentioned king Richard. Wait, give me an example. All right, so there was a scene. I don't think it's come out yet. But there's a scene where Wayne was testifying in court. And I went to go play that scene and I wore that Baltimore police bulletproof flak jacket in court. And David's like, you know, why are you wearing that? Everybody's questioning me why I'm wearing that. And I think I have a picture of him on the day wearing it. And David said, no police officer would wear that in court. He was like, where's this jacket? Where's his picture? Why are you saying there's a picture? I haven't seen a picture. That just held it up on my phone. Somebody had said to me, I'm like, there's a picture. And you know, I did get you got one over on him. I did, man. That was one for Bernstein. Trust me, there was many the other way, but you know, I think again, as soon as he saw that picture, he said, good go. Because again, it's not about, hey, what looks coolest or what's going to make for the best picture. It's not up to the DP or the costume department. What was he wearing that day? That's what he's wearing. And I dig that. It's like being in a boxing gym. The truth is right there in the ring, man. We don't have to, you know, you don't have to placate. You don't have to puff up, it's right there. But I also think, you know, for me, you know, you mentioned king Richard, it's the same director. Ray green directed king Richard, he came on with me to this and directed all the episodes. In my mind, look, I've had the privilege of working with the best. Raise up there as good as anybody working. I mean, he's a legendary director. Right sort of at the his career is about to explode. But you know, having him with me, you know, with David and George, who are, you know, for their own right, very set in their ways. They know how to do it. Look, a big part of me playing this part is improving. And changing it up. And you know, you don't want to be changing up, David Simon's lines. But having ray with me get my back and encouraging me to sort of go that way. It's something I'm eternally grateful for. I'm grateful for and he's my brother and this performance is just as much his as it is mine. Well, and he's a guy like you who love the wire and understood the importance of like, hey, this show's going to be compared to the wire in some way. Going back to Baltimore. That's right. I think one of the things I love, I mean, there's so many things I love about this show, but you know, it's 6 episodes. It easily could have been 13. They could have strong stuff out. We could have gone on, you know, the little side trip with Sean souter, his wife is having infertility issues, and they got to go to the doctor and is she going to get pregnant or not? And we could add all these Hollywood subplots and Simon's just like, no, is this a true story? 6 episodes ruin all the facts. I don't want to do a lot of detours. They do some detours with you, but all of them make sense. When Wayne's bringing crabs initially way back when when he's a young cop and he brings the kind of crappy crabs and they give him shit and it's like you can see the seeds are planted and we're like, I need to make more money..
Will Smith Issues Apology to Chris Rock
"Now here's what Will Smith just now put out in a statement. And he finally has apologized to Chris Rock, and that should have been the first words out of his mouth when he won his Academy Award last night. Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night's Academy Award was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but a joke about Jada's medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally. I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line, and I was wrong. I am embarrassed in my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness. I would also like to apologize to the academy, the producers of the show, and all the attendees and everyone watching around the world. I would like to apologize to the Williams family, and my king Richard family. I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been and otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us. I am a work in progress, sincerely will.

Bloomberg terminal Anna One of the most watched videos no doubt as well Really interesting exchange between the two gentlemen but also what was really interesting about the awards ceremony themselves Leigh Anne and you mentioned this with the win for coda Is the way that this is streaming services This is Apple and Netflix in this case Apple doing very well for the first time really center stage when it comes to these awards Yeah absolutely And Apple has a lot less subscribers than Netflix so in some respects coda was a bit of a surprise because apple's a little bit further behind so maybe Apple will get a big boost now But COVID at coda actually not COVID which I'm so used to saying I had a lookup at yesterday It stands for children of deaf adults which is extremely moving and when you watch the production it is pretty amazing and a really good feel good film which we might all need at the moment But maybe we're all going to be getting Apple streaming services others are available of course Thank you very much I haven't seen code I did fall asleep during one of the other Oscar nominated films which I won't say which one that was Go on and I won't I wouldn't be so cruel Thank you Joining us now to talk markets Craig earlham a Wanda senior market analyst at Craig very good to have you with us So European stocks looking pretty resilient today despite weakness on U.S. stocks We don't seem to have a clear kind of risk on risk off picture coming through Is that because markets are a little unsure what to do with the higher yield environment the ongoing COVID fight in China and the recent resilience of equities Bring those thoughts together for us There's such an incredible amount of information to absorb right now I always think it's not we're looking at a bit of a weak signal for the start of trade when you see that divergence between Europe and the U.S. it never gives me it never gives me much confidence But as you say I think we are there is just so much to absorb I think the U.S. yield curve is one thing that there's a lot of focus on right now because of the path of interest rates The talks between this week it seems between Ukraine and Russia is probably one of the things that's given Europe in particular of a boost which may be responsible for that kind of divergence of what we're seeing or your prices pay back a little bit as well So that's probably more of a European focus there which may be leading the way but as I say when you see that switch diverges between the two sides of the pond it doesn't necessarily give me much hope that it's going to be a good leading indicator Yeah that weaker oil price obviously not helpful for London but helpful for other continental European markets and that's the divergence we're seeing energy stocks the worst performing sector across European equities today In terms of the broader resilience of equities Craig do you expect that to continue I mean when we look at the way that the S&P has performed up more than 8% in two weeks recouping losses since the start of the war the NASDAQ up around 11% in the same period The stock 600 even is pretty flat since the invasion now I mean is that that resilience we've seen in stocks that recovery from earlier selling that we've seen over the last week or so Does that make sense to you Yeah investor resilience never ceases to amaze me to be honest And I think what we've seen over the last week over the last two weeks it has caught me off guard to a certain extent I mean when we look at not necessarily how much we've recovered since the Ukraine invasion it's more how far we are from the all time high levels that I think is the thing that I find most striking because if it was just a Ukraine situation then you could say that certain amounts of pricing that we've priced in the commodity moves but the fact that it's coming from different angles and we've got the tightening angle as well Then yeah I do think that I was caught me off guard a little bit It is a little bit surprising but there is an incredible amount of resilience that so much now is priced in The markets are pricing in a very aggressive tightening cycle and maybe there is

the negotiations does not mean what Ukraine is ready to surrender To negotiations mean that there should be a solution and push and diplomatic pressure to stop Russia As the war in Ukraine enters its second month civilian areas in the city of Levi in western Ukraine have been attacked by Russian forces for the first time until now and had been regarded as a safe haven for people fleeing the fighting of further east In other news China is locking down Shanghai in two phases for mass COVID testing The city of 25 million people will first lock down areas in the east of the city including

finally to one of our top red stories of the day on the Bloomberg terminal lesbian some real Oscars drama this morning just minutes before winning the Oscar for best actor Will Smith slapped comedian

death family one best picture Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries and leann garands this is Bloomberg Anna Thank you very much for that Leigh Anne Let's get back to our top story in the latest on the war in Ukraine and as Liam was mentioning Ukrainian and Russian negotiating teams are set to resume in person talks this week Bloomberg senior reporter for international affairs Mark champion joins us now Mark we spent a lot of time talking about having low expectations for talks These talks set to take place in turkey what do we expect from this round Well I don't think an enormous amount has changed They expectations are still going to be fairly low Zelensky said in interviews over the weekend was essentially that he understood that he has previously said that Russian troops have to withdraw to where they were on February 23rd before you could start talking about the status of Crimea or the Donbass territory And now he more and I said the same thing but with a sort of hint that he understood that Don bas territories were essentially lost So these are the areas that were taken and occupied for 8 years already But it doesn't really move the needle a lot given the extent of what the Russians are asking which is much more expensive They want the at least the complete territories of the hunk and Donetsk which is about two thirds more than they held in February 23rd And they want recognition that primary is Russian Okay So there's still a long way apart perhaps on that despite these comments from Russia over the weekend about where it wants to focus It's attention now and much of that seemingly in the east Give us that your thoughts on President Biden's remarks saying this man can not remain in power talking about president Putin There might be not many men and women on the street in Western countries who'd see anything too controversial in that but when you're the leader of the free world these words matter a great deal But for those who don't speak diplomatic language day in and day out Mark House substantial was this off the cuff this unscripted remark It was a real own goal essentially It's pretty clear that it was unscripted It's pretty clear that he meant it in a more emotive sense than policy sense And that's something that Biden is well known through for all through his career and these kinds of gas But it doesn't really help or change the matter that he said the words And they are helpful in propaganda terms to president Putin who's argued all along that this is not about Ukraine It's about Russia defending itself from western attempts U.S. attempts to destroy Russia to conduct regime change in Russia And so it will strengthen that narrative And it also just makes it harder to deal with a leader who is widely seen now as somewhat paranoid and unpredictable Speaking of Putin Okay thanks very much Mark champion there joining us with the latest bingo senior reporter for international affairs Mark champion interesting lines around China as well moving to comply with U.S. sanctions and easing some U.S. sanctioned concerns more on that no doubt in later.

"Year and I'm going to black women. Coming up, our abode Oscar predictions. Who will be the biggest surprise? Who will be the biggest upset? And will Lonnie get on the carpet with her restraining order. We'll talk about that. You guys, I just want to let you guys know that there's going to be a lot of Oscars coverage on Sunday. But the best is going to be Jacqueline Coley and I holding it down on top of the building at Ripley's believe it or not. Don't let me fall. I'm very excited to be there, but I was like, they're like, you're going to be on top of a building. I was like, Justin hold me. To make sure that we're all good, I have a person from Prudential here who's going to sign up you up for life insurance. Just in case. Yes. But before we get to that, let's talk about the predictions because there's so much going on. Best actress, you and I are going to battle this out because who do you think is going to win? Okay, so I actually think that Jessica Chastain is going to win. She won the sag award. She's due. Don't forget folks. She was in the help. It was a long time ago since then. And then she came back with zero dark 30. This is one where I think she's going to finally get that Oscar. But let's not forget the Oscar voting academy is a lot of foreign. There's a lot of people internationally and Penélope Cruz has that draw. By the way, and she's my should win. I believe Penélope Cruz gave the best performance for folks that didn't see parallel mothers it was incredible. It's her and a mode of our they've had this incredible relationship where he's brought her through all these films, including the first one that she won the Oscar for. I do agree. However, justices do. Okay. Well, let me ask you this. She may earn. Let's pretend that Will Smith's not gonna take it all. Let's pretend. Who would you see? Taking it off in best actor. In the crazy universe where Will Smith is not going to win, which we all do. I actually would put my best bet on Andrew Garfield's for tick tick boom. For folks that don't remember, he had four movies last year, including one of the movies that saved the box office, so him and tick tick boom, playing Jonathan Larson. I was there at AFI when this film came out. It played so well. He's like the dark horse one for me. Interesting. It really is interesting, right? Yeah, I mean, there's so, okay, the movies were phenomenal that'd be nominated. Who is the toughest competition you think? Toughest competition, I would say honestly right now, it's maybe best song. I would just say, like, best song is a hard category, but best picture is the one where everybody is kind of losing. Okay. Let's talk about best original song. Yeah. Because everyone's saying, oh my God, yes, king Richard be alive, which Beyoncé, the song is amazing. And Beyoncé and I are in a fight right now, but that's not here or there. Yes. I think it should definitely win. However, everybody's talking about ink and sounds. Because everyone got kids. Yes. Everyone has kids, so right now, I think the war is between Billie Eilish, who's saying No Time to Die. Traditionally, James Bond, if you do that, you win an Oscar. But Beyoncé or Lynn could do it. But you know what? Came out came out too early. Came out to Ellie, but it won the Grammy and these are 65 year old Oscar voters white men. This is one of the few pop stars they know. They know Billy more than they know Beyoncé true. Her fan base is massive. And older. Men older. And so I think she's there, but the one that everyone's really like, I think, debating about his best picture. He's going to win. I think code is going to win. Coda is a movie that when I talk to these Oscar voters, they're all talking about how much they love that movie. They lived that movie, especially Tony kotzer. The fact that it's a movie that symbols representation that we don't see that often with the primarily deaf actor cast, and it just makes you want to cry. And by the way, I normally like to fight with you. But I can't fight on this. I mean, seriously. And.

"Good spot. It did. I never would have lurk in there for a second. Then paradox took drive my cars, artsy spot. And it's really a two man race. And even FanDuel, which incredibly has Oscar ads this year. Well, I think Dakota even more than king Richard took Belfast spot. That was the movie that in the fall when it was debuting. And I believe Belfast when the audience award at tiff, which is like a pretty clear an award the green book one. It's an award that usually indicates where the populist point of view is on a movie. And Belfast just never really picked up the speed that everyone thought it was going to. I think in September, there was a sense that it was power the dog versus Belfast all the way down. And for whatever reason, that movie didn't click. It is the only movie I believe. That hasn't streamed. Out of all of them. Even drive my car streaming on HBO Max, but Belfast is still not available on a streamer. You have to rent it. We'll power the dog's minus one 40 and coda is down to plus one O 5. Me and Kim on Sal bit on koda when it was plus 8 50. So what do you stand to make there? Well, plus 8 50. I stand to make more wager. You put down 10 million $10 million a piece. I want to talk about some of these odds. And you're really good at the Oscar post stuff. And we'll do that after the break. But before we do that, just quickly, so the Oscars really trying to change what they are and try to get more people and doing all these dome gimmicks and it just feels like a car crash in slow motion. Every piece of it, I haven't liked one thing I've read. I think they completely misunderstand what were some of the problems with the Oscars. I actually like the categories. I just think as we talked the last time you were on, like, they needed to add a couple of categories that add a populist flavor, like breakthrough performance. Best, best popcorn movie, or best big budget movie, whatever. Just a couple things where I'm like, oh, here's the category where.

Sorry guys, if you hear a buzzing or something, there's like construction going on in the background. But anyway, is this thing of where people are largely done with physical warfare.

You know what I'm saying? In a weird way. At least not in, you know, at least not here. If the economic situations are dire enough, it's against the people who are in power. Yes. You know what I'm saying? It's like the anger is against the people who are in power, not against people eating McDonald's and watching TV over in America now. They're not the reason why you're, you know what I'm saying? And I think everyone across the globe is now because of access. Speaking of access, you know, we tend to we tend to give Elon Musk hail. I have to give him kudos for him enabling Internet for Ukraine using Starlink. I mean, I got to give you cruel. Yeah, you know, but that's one of those moments where you kind of go like, thanks. You know what I'm saying? I mean, yeah, man. Yeah, we appreciate it, but it's like, gosh, I mean, yeah. Appreciate it, bro I mean, even though, you know, the idea is that it's like for real for real, yes, okay, yes, we appreciate it. Yeah, yeah. But it's like, this is no skin off your back for her.

That and more. Thank you so much, will. By the way, let me just say my favorite part of the whole interview is when the publicist ring your arm to stop and you kept on going. Oh, well you know that's what we do. Because when the emotions are flowing, you don't just stop at a question. No. Will Smith saw his self being this champion for those two little girls? And he saw his father in king Richard, you know, Richard Williams, and you know, one of my favorite parts in that movie is when king Richard says, the world, the world never cared or never saw. He said, the world never respected Richard Williams, but they don't respect y'all. And it just hit me because there are so many black men in this industry. So many black men in this world that are not seen and he realized the burden of strength that he carried. It was beautiful. I love that. Now you also talk to Jessica Chastain? I did. We can heat up.

Anyway, I want to talk to you about this new deep what Liz Cheney read the text to Mark Meadows, you know, from Don Junior, Sean Han, Laura Ingraham and the other fox idiot. And all telling telling him to tell the president, tell these people to stop, tell them to stop. It's really freaking getting too much. And the funny thing to me and I'll let you guys talk after this is that Don Junior probably doesn't even have his father's number. We've been talking about that nonstop. It's always got a text Mark medal. It's truly pathetic, huh? It's sad. It's really sad. It's really, really sad. But I mean, yeah, I mean, every text you see is incredibly, in my opinion, like pretty incriminating stuff. I thought that was a really powerful thing from the January 6th committee. And I've been like, I know a lot of people get frustrated with timelines and they want things to happen quicker and but I think the January 6th committee has been doing an outstanding job like an incredible job. Ignoring the noise. Can you explain the point of the January 6 committee too? Because I feel like people just, most people might not understand what their specific role is here. They're a great job breaking it down. Well, I think they're all really at the end of the day. They're putting together information. You know, they're trying to get information. They're trying to put together a report and a lot of people say like, well, why isn't so and so arrested? Well, why isn't so and so this? But that's not if you're going to expect that from the January 6th committee. I think you're going to be in for a rough time, because what they're doing is like with the 9 11 commission did, which is they do research, they create documents..

But it all happened so fast. She was a mega star, like legitimately overnight. It's crazy. Absolutely not. I was thinking Richard yesterday. I need to review there, because I've heard mixed mixed things, mixed bag. I don't understand why the movie is centered on him. Okay. I think is my problem. The movie never makes a compelling case for why it's centered around him. And in fact, makes a case for why it should have been centered around Venus Williams. Will Smith, Academy Award does it happen? I don't think it should. I will say that. Look, we'll see. I don't think he's bad. I don't think that the performance is bad. I think he's pretty good in it to be honest. I can't imagine that there won't be better performances as we start getting into some of these Oscar contenders. Later in the year, look, he would not be what I've seen a 190 movies this year. In 2021 releases. Yeah, not older movies like I've probably seen a hundred and maybe a 170, 2021 releases. A lot of movies. It's a lot. It's a lot of what a new release is. Yeah, would not. I mean, like, look, like I thought like Anthony Ramos in the heights was like drastically better. Right. Yep. But that's also not going to get nominated, because that movie like died on the vine. So what else? I watched I watched the eyes of Tammy Faye, which is the Jessica Chastain movie. Sure. Seen it, not the movie, you'll see in the head, I believe. Yeah, good. I thought it was good. I liked it a little bit more than I like king Richard. She's really good. And Andrew Garfield is really, really good. Like really, really good. Both like, I would be okay with both of them getting nominated for an Academy Award more than I would be okay with Will Smith getting nominated. Yeah, there hasn't been a ton of new releases yet that peaked my interest. But king Richard was on the list to watch. I also started watching the so that music products here is on HBO Max. They also had one on DMX, so I'm like halfway through that one..

Maybe a little bit of leather bees be locked inside all day. That sounds lovely. I'm looking forward to that, too. I know. One kind of a big picture thing that I can't wait to start doing again is what family friends they're getting so hugged so often the next time that we're all allowed to hang out in big rooms and And do the thing like that's going to be so great to actually be able T get back toe, the family and friendly gatherings.

You know me as a assessing Gle. You know, I play video games for On. I really loved watching movies. I binge watch TV shows, probably to an unhealthy degree like I was. I was built for shelter in place. These sort of things air they really did already kind of fit into my pre existing Routine in lifestyle, But even I somebody who is an avid endorsement. Um you know, I have reached a pretty close to my limit some some long time long ago. And were it not for the ability of meeting, you know, keep coming in and doing work. And I was actually just, you know, staring at the same four walls. Man. I didn't Hmm. Even even the most avid endorsement as myself. I'm not sure how well that would have that would have handled but but so jumping back into the movie conversation here, um, where I leave off soul was great Wonder woman. Don't worry about it. You can pass on that. But looking ahead to the movie release schedule for 2021. These movies all would have been a theatrical release. Big deals and these are all coming to various Streaming devices to you, Tom and Jerry animated movie probably gonna be huge, although I don't know that seems a little violent for a lot of the the over worried people. Nowadays, we'll see. Maybe maybe they're friends again coming to America with the number two. So this is actually the sequel of the Eddie Murphy movie From Way back when coming to America. They're making another one that one's coming to Amazon streaming. The King's Man, another sequel in the blockbuster. These have all been action movies, The King's Men, Chronicles or whatever they're called Know the King Slayer Chronicles is a book The King's Men, Syriza's The movie Thing with the British kind of James Bond. He thinks The many Saints of new work. Oh, I'm sorry. The King's Man that's actually coming into theaters. The many Saints of Newark that is the Sopranos prequel that's coming directly to HBO Max Mortal Kombat movie, which I believe is Arguably the only good video game movie and as a video game or that hurts me to say moral combat Coming directly. Toe HBO. Max Godzilla verse Calling is their aim, Or I need to see this on a 70 ft screen movie title than Godzilla versus Kong. Well, you're just gonna be able to watch that from your smartphone if you want to on the on the day it gets released. Top gun maverick That's coming out the theaters, But I wanted to highlight that because that is one of two Tom Cruise movies. But that is not the Tom Cruise movie where he was yelling at everybody for breaking the covert protocols. Did you guys play that tape on the on here? Kendall? Did you guys experience the loveliness of Tom Cruise yelling at his crew? Yes, Yes, So there That was not that movie That's coming up later. We'll address that when we get there. Space jam a new legacy. That's the new space jam thing. This one with LeBron James in the in the League basketball roll. Assume Bugs Bunny is still in the lead. Animated roll suicide squad. Also coming to HBO. Max Doon coming to HBO, Max. That That movie has got me very excited, but coming, so this is Yeah. Matrix for into the year, HBO Max King Richard. And if that's a period piece with the title King Richard, you can guarantee that's Oscar bait that Zone awards style movie. They are That would not have been in under the radar direct to video release, which is a strange kind of weird equivalents of how things get beamed directly in To our homes these days, and I'm curious if instead of movies needing to make their money back and returns at the box office When the business model becomes each and every movie is just another commercial and a magnet to get somebody to sign up to a subscription service. Does that change The overall budget landscape of movies? Are Christopher Nolan movies going to become a thing of the past? Now? I don't think that theaters are gone full. Stop never coming back, But I do think the theater experience as we know it. Is going to be very different. I think the big theatrical releases will exist for some of the more gigantic movies. Think thinking like you're whatever the new Star Wars movie the next one that comes out or you know your marvel kind of your your big so much punching lots of explosion blockbusters. I think those will still exist in some format of the shared viewing. The actual.
