YouTuber Chris Kohls Opens Up About His Career Path
"Your career path, Chris? Well, I decided to go into filmmaking and primarily as a writer. I wanted to write, I wanted to create worlds. I wanted to kind of do what we do, but in a more subtle way. Instead of doing a show where I talk about politics, I would make films in which the ethics of the characters were traditional values and they had the stories were moral or at least they had some kind of a moral core that you could that you could see and respect or maybe something that was ideal that you could want to be like want to emulate. So I wanted to make these sort of maybe old fashioned value films and TV shows and stuff like that. And so I came to LA to do that. Actually, my father has a very successful business up in Oregon. And one day he called me and he's like, hey, Chris, you're going to take over the business or what's going on. I'm like, no dad, I'm going to Los Angeles. I'm going to be a writer.

This is back when I was like a struggling writer, trying to get anybody that I could to get to read my stuff, which nobody ever really did. But I'm trying to get trying to figure that out. And I'm like, what do you think about this career path? And he goes, well, Chris, I can't imagine you doing anything else. Like ever since we were children, you were always coming up with stories, telling me, you know, we'd see Santa Claus on the roof of my neighbor's house. And I tell my brother, I'd come up with this like vast story about Santa that night and why he's up on the house that night and stuff. And because I had to figure up there. So I'd just come up with stories about anything. And I tell my brother these stories every night because we shared a room. And he's like, yeah, and he had more of a better insight than anybody else, because he was the one that had to hear the stories all the time. And so he was like, no, Kris, this is, of course, you have to do this. This is

"l. nick" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"So that's one of the reasons I hope folks, as I mentioned before, like Mike Pence and Ted Cruz and others will see the film and talk about it. I think they have a responsibility. I think if you want to be in public life in America, you have responsibility to deal with this. And if you do not deal with this, we will never pay attention to you again. Your day is done. But if you deal with this, we will get behind you. If you champion freedom, we will champion you as you champion freedom. The idea of people being afraid, it's an amazing thing. Nick that, you know, when I think about bonhoff, how many German Christians look the other way until it was too late. So we're no different. Whatever you're doing today, folks, that's what you would have been doing while the Jews are being murdered. You're doing it now. I don't think there's any way of getting out of that. No, no, and the fear is pervasive and it gets into the COVID stuff, the COVID strategy from the government. Everything they're doing right now is feeding this idea that Americans have to be fearful of the government of what they will do to them if we don't obey what they tell us to do. And that's where we have to draw the line. And if we don't draw the line, there won't be a line. They'll run over us and they'll become all of the nations that we have decried and pointed out as socialist hellholes over the years we're going to become that. If we don't stand up now and stop being afraid. Well, and I say this to my fellow men, you need to be a man. The very idea that you would coast on the freedoms that real men died that we could have are you willing to be a man? Are you willing to stand up? Are you willing to risk your life? If you're not, you have to ask yourself why. And what do you believe in? What do you believe in? So that's one of the reasons I thought the film was important. Nick is because it forces us to look in the mirror and to say, what would I do? What will I do? And I hope people will at the very least watch the film, watch it, folks with a group of people, but it's very important. Nick, seriously. Thank you. I just want to reassure everybody. It's also fun. I mean, it sounds crazy, but the film, even though it's serious, there it is. I don't care why they watch as long as they watch it. But yes, thank you very much..
"l. nick" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Be right back folks. I'm talking Nick here. See the film is capital capital that's TO capital punishment. Folks, Eric metaxas here, somebody just handed me a piece of paper with insane information on it. But I know it's true because the other day I literally got a phone call from Mike lindell telling me Eric, you got to check out and he then he tells me about this towel special, right? And he says, you've got to tell your audience, okay, so here's the special. 39.99, if you use the code Eric, normally, $109 and 99 cents. We're talking about the towels that work. We've talked about this before. It's a technology where the towel is actually do the job of being absorbent and you know, you know that whole thing. So they're amazing towels, but you can get a set of 6 towels for 39.99. You have to use the code Eric, go to my pillow dot com, click on the new radio listener specials and or you can call 809 7 8 three O 5 7 809 7 8 three O 5 7, use the code Eric. Let's welcome back. I'm talking to Nick searcy that seriously with an S, C or C, who is behind the film capital punishment, and it's capital TO as in the U.S. capitol. The tagline for the film Nick is everything they told you is a lie. I'm the kind of an old fashioned American who really doesn't like to believe that it's possible that in America that could be true. That everything they told us is a lie. But unfortunately, in my lifetime, right now I'm having to deal with the fact that this is real. Something has happened in our country that is genuinely unprecedented. It is as dark as it gets. And we need to wake up to this, that this is happening in America. And this is what we've called the deep state. There are people that despise the kind of freedom that the founders risk their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honors. To give us, they despise it. And they're working for the FBI and the CIA. And for our government, and something needs to be done about this. And the first thing that needs to happen is people need to wake up and to see what is happening. There's a scene in the film where you talk some people talk about the scene with these folks who don't even know how to put it with the pocket constitution. Take us take us there if you would. Well, one of the things I like to say to people who challenge me on that, you know, that the government's lying to you, I always like to ask them, what was it that convinced you that the government would never lie to you? Was it tuskegee? Was it the Vietnam War? Was it the JFK assassination? Was it the Gulf War? Was it Jesse Smollett? What was it that convinced you that the media and the government would never tell you a lot? And one of the most chilling details in the film is Derek Kennedy, when he talks about the FBI raid on his house, 6 a.m. in the morning, armored vehicles rolling down his little suburban neighborhood, 20 S.W.A.T. team members with rifles pointed at his chest red dots on him. They handcuff him. They start photographing things in his house like evidence. Like his Trump paraphernalia. Like it's evidence of something some wrongdoing. And they pulled out a box of pocket constitutions that Derek and his friends like to carry around with them to give to children or whatever. The U.S. Constitution. They pull this out and they photographed it like it was evidence that this was this man with some sort of an extreme terrorist because he carries around pocket constitutions. These are the most patriotic people in our country. The people who love this country, as it was founded, and they are demonizing the very document that it was found at all. Look, I want to, in my book, if you can keep it, which is about America, I tell the story of Nathan Hale. And I just want to bring people back. Okay, Nathan Hale was, I guess he was 21 years old. It's hard for me to imagine. I keep saying he's 24. But this was as noble an American patriot as you can imagine. A serious Christian. The way the British treated him. Was so despicable. They didn't just hang him, but they were they treated him the way these FBI folks treated some of these Americans. In a way that when you see it, you know who's the good guy and who are the bad guys. We need to remember there's always tyranny. We live in a fallen world and unless good people will stand up and exercise their freedom and speak the truth without fear, we're always going to have to deal with this. And just as people died for freedom in the revolution and in subsequent wars that today we're having to face this. But you know, when I hear that story, you just think like, how did we get here in America, where somebody who has given out the constitution is demonized as the bad guy? It's just mind bending. And we need to wake up. I don't remember his name. What was the name of that guy? Derek Kennedy. Derek dennison is the demand. And also, his friend, Toni Martinez, Antonio Martinez, who had his 13 year old daughter handcuffed, along with his wife and himself outside of his house. He was a brown Hispanic people who talked about how they love the United States of America and they're treated like trash. They're treated like enemies of the state. I didn't know which story was worse. The two you just mentioned, both of them were. It was just, it really beggars belief. And that's why I want people to see this film. You need to see this folks because this is real. This is what we're facing. And the other is another story. It's kind of humorous because nothing too bad happened to these two. But two 74 year old twin sisters who saw people going into the capitol going in and coming out, it looked very orderly. They said, do you want to go in? They walked in. They talked to the police, said, is it okay if we're in here and policeman said, yeah, it's fine. And they took some pictures. They went home. And three weeks later, the FBI is banging on their door, saying that they facing possible felony charges for breaking and entering and now you're on a no fly list. 74 year old twin sister grandmothers. I mean, it's.

He's been in all kinds of films and he is my guest right now. Nick, seriously, welcome to the program. Hey Eric, thanks for having me on. It's great to be here. You know, I'm not kidding about this film. I remember when I saw the trailer, we were at rob McCoy's church, a couple months ago. And I just thought, man, I don't want to see this because I'm going to get so upset. And I watched it last night, and I thought to myself, what you've made in this film, it's called capital punishment. It's at least very, very important, at least. That is one thing I will say. Because the story needs to be told, you told it. So I don't know where to start. I guess I want everybody in America to see this film, but I'm more than that, I want every journalist in America to see this film. I want Mike Pence to see this film, it's important that people understand this side of the story. So this side of the story, what am I talking about? Tell us Nick Cersei. What am I talking about? Well, I was there that day, my friend, Chris and I decided to go and not necessarily to make a film, but just to witness it for ourselves and because we shared an opinion like a lot of the people there that there were something not on the up and up about the election and we wanted it to be investigated. And then when I got home that night after being there and having such a lovely time and meeting a lot of great people, I didn't see anything on the television that was anything like what I had experienced it. Because I didn't see any violence. I was at the capitol, but I was apparently on the wrong side and all I saw was a lot of people waving flags and singing songs and praying and doing peaceful patriotic things. And so as the months went on and the media kept telling the same story over and over again, it just occurred to us they're not really telling the whole story. They're leaving out the fact that they were maybe 2 million great Americans that were there that didn't do anything wrong and they're being persecuted..

"I get to do something as effective as Ron Swanson, but then I'm granted permission to still continue as an artist and do more work. So I'm really grateful for that and look forward to trying some more stuff. I just thought I'd share with you my wife came in at the very, I guess the last 15 or so minutes of the last episode. And I've been binge watching over the last couple of days. And she was watching you and she said, is he a good guy or a bad guy? And I looked at her and I said, well, kind of both. She nodded and I thought that really reflected the range of the pathos and the hope for the future that this character brought to the screen and that you created in that role. So I went to share that with you. I thought you'd enjoy that question. I love that. Thank you. That's right on the nose. I really appreciate it. And I have to give the credit for that to Alex. I mean, that's what the whole show is about. Is the morality of and it's questioning the morality that we're seeing play out in real life with the power the unfettered power of Facebook and Google and these companies that are controlling the information of the world unchecked. Are they good guys or bad guys? Yeah. Sadly, it's maybe it's a little more murky and devs than it is in real life because there's not a lot of good guys stuff going on in the news. I have one last question for you. And it's also about devs. You had epic epic hair in that series. Is it your hair? No. I was it's my beard. Yes. But this wonderful artist named Nadia Stacy. So you want awards, unless you want a BAFTA if nothing else for the favorite with Olivia Coleman and she'll she also did the recent Emma Stone movie of the 101 dalmatians villain. Cruella and she did the father with Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman. So this incredible British hair and makeup artist created that look, Alex sent like a reference photo of just the surfer dude, so that was a wig that had a bunch of bald on top. So I shaved my head and then had a head of this huge beard which then made Ginger to go with it. So I just let my favorite thing in the world is to look unrecognizable. And she really hit it out of the park. I was so tickled to get to do that for 6 months. Well, Nick, thank you so much for helping us to understand the world and we're curious and humorous and really charming way and thank you for joining me today.

"You've also started movies, including the founder and heart speak loud in the television shows, Fargo devs, which I just binge watched and loved. And you can ask you about your hair in that one. And along with Amy Poehler he hosted the NBC realities you host the NBC reality series making it and have been nominated for two Emmy Awards. Congratulations on all of that. Yeah, you said that you put your relationship with Megan above everything else, including acting jobs and have a rule that you never do a job that will keep you apart from more than two weeks. Is that the secret to the success of your 20 year marriage? Well, I suppose, I mean, the secret to our marriage, I think, is just we're lucky enough to have picked the right person because we love being together. We've been together for 21 years and we sometimes choose to work together. We've gone on tour together. We do plays together. We wrote a book together. And so often people we know will say to us, why in the world would you choose to spend more time with your spouse? Like, and we say, man, I feel so bad for you, that you, would ask that question. You might reconsider some of your choices. If you think about it, and even two weeks sucks. I mean, if we get to the end of a week where we're apart, she just is, I mean, she's the love of my life. But it's not just all savvy romance, like it's there's a very powerful health component. My weaknesses involve things like to drink too much. We'll sit down and eat two pizzas. Like I'll put myself in pain. You know, to be a hedonist, and as a young person, you're like, okay, that's part of being young, but now if I'm away from Megan, I'll say, oh, there's a baseball game. I'm gonna drink, you know, four beers, which is too too many. And I'm gonna order a pizza. If I sometimes still do that before I'm even done. I'm like, oh yeah, this is why I'm married because I'd be dead of something by now 'cause I'm stupid. Like, I can't help it. And so recognizing that and depending on my relationship to not just give me romance and love and physical fulfillment, it also just literally keeps me healthy. And so the two week rule is a huge part of that. You know, if somebody offered me and they have, I've been offered jobs that would take me to New Zealand for a few months or what have you. You have to say, no, if Megan can come with me, sometimes that's how we do it. We've both done jobs in England. Only if the other person can come visit or, you know, it always has to be part of the negotiation. That's my advice to everybody. It's like make a household that you want to last forever. And no matter what your job is, even if it's a career at a bank or something, still, that's going to end. And you still want that household or that family or that relationship to support you during and beyond whatever your job is, whether it's a fancy movie job or just driving a bus. You got to put your home life and the affection you have for your family relationships above everything that's just, you know, think that's the number one key to life. You've written about your relationship in several of your books. But I find it most poignant in your brand new book, where the deer and the antelope play the pastoral observations of one ignorant American who loves to walk outside. Congratulations on another wonderfully funny humerus and really wonderful book. Thank you so much..

"30% off your purchase that's 30% off at Joybird dot com, forward slash matters. You almost got a part on Will & Grace that ultimately went to Woody Harrelson and you also auditioned for the role of Michael Scott in the office. You didn't get either, but your audition created the seed for the casting director that became your character Ron Swanson in parks and rec. And is it true that when you got the call from your producer, make sure you sobbed for 30 minutes upon hearing you got the role? I mean, 30 minutes might be, it may have been more like 28 minutes. Professionally, it was all of the parts that I didn't get for so many years paid off so powerfully with such an emotional catharsis because all of those other roles weren't right. You know, it would have been wonderful to get a cool part on a show, but we've seen the examples you've cited, the reason I didn't get the roles is because there were better people and finally the role found me that no one ostensibly could have done better. So life clicked in for me at age 38, I think I was. It was like the end of The Lord of the Rings or something where I was like, oh my God, it all makes sense. Everything Gandalf ever said to me, suddenly hit home. And so I had a very emotional gratitude filled reaction. You played Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation for all of the show's 7 seasons to great acclaim. You won the television critics association award for individual achievement.

"Because it lacked the passion of the theater. And I think that's part of what led me to this stage was growing up in the Catholic Church, and I got, I appreciate the values, you know, the lessons of the church, but it just didn't, you know, nobody was juiced. Nobody was like, man, that's sermon really blew me away, or made me cry. So I wanted to take the sort of values of a religion and take it to a different kind of barn. And that's what they taught me in kabuki was before every show, everyone would do this stretching exercise where you line up all the way across the stage, kneeling in front of a towel and you do this sort of stretching. It's sort of yoga. You push the towel, then do kind of salute to the sun kind of pose until you push yourself all the way across the stage. So the whole company cleans the stage before every show. So I mean, it really has this reverential sort of shrine atmosphere. And then when we started a theater company in Chicago, me and my Friends, a lot of us had come from the kabuki training. And so we were able to bring that a lot of the same aesthetic to our own crappy little Chicago company. You earned your degree in theater, but have said that in the four years of theater school, it became clear that you were trying too hard to be hip and cool and urbane and had unwittingly thought that you're sort of country rude persona would not be interesting to an audience. When did you realize otherwise? I mean, because of the kabuki show we took a year off school. We toured Japan and it was kabuki Achilles. It was an adaptation of the Iliad. And this was 1991, and I hate to always hate this sentence, but the first Gulf War had just broken out. While we were in production in champagne urbana, we took the show to Japan, some producers loved the anti war message of Achilles and Hector, ultimately saying to each other, you are as I, we're the same. Why are we trying to kill each other? We ended up touring Hungary, and then we played a theater outside of Philly for 6 months called the people's light and theater company in malvern, which is up the main line from Philadelphia. And so that was a year off school so I spent 5 years in theater school all told. And then it was a couple of years into Chicago after school were naturalism finally began to occur to me where I don't know. The insecurity or the ignorance, I just chipped away at it until finally I realized, oh, I simply finally get it. Just act like yourself. And I'd just so thick headed. It literally took me like 6 or 7 years to get it. So once that happened, my best friend, this genius, director and actor named Joe Faust. He had been waiting for it for years. He desperately wanted me to catch on. And I finally got it. And so once that happened, I looked back at all these auditions and said, oh, I see. So I'm never going to get cast as a cool leather jacket sort of finger popping daddy. That's not my bag. I'm going to get cast as a laborer or a plumber or a bus driver or what have you. Or a scary version of those guys, once I realized that, then my life kind of began. That was ground zero where I said, okay. The tools that I have, who I am, what I grew up as that's the most valuable thing in my toolbox. So let me now begin to build my professional career. My body of work around that particular set of tools. You and your friends founded the experimental company, the defiant theater. And you've said that if you had started auditioning at big theaters before this work, you'd probably still be there. Was it when you developed the defiant theater that that realization about your country rude persona first occurred to you? It was in those years, yes. Because my best friend was one of our main directors. And so they would pick shows to do, and I built the scenery for this company. I had all the tools. I drove the truck. So in many ways, I was the dad of the company. And they would choose shows where I would say, oh, perfect. This role is perfect for me. And then I wouldn't get the part that cast somebody outside the company, and I would say, hey man, what's the deal? And my best friend and roommate would say, you know, I'm going to always have to cast the best actor for the show. And that's this other guy because you're not that good yet. And I would say, well, I believe you. You know, the baby in me is selfishly mad about that, but I understand. But there was the word yet there. That's encouraging. It was. And it just, you know, like all things, it was a slowly accumulating awareness of what it took. And so I was really grateful. I would get supporting roles. And then finally, I did a good enough audition for this play called the quarantine that Joe was directing and I finally got the lead. And, you know, I was perfectly mediocre, but I was better than I had been. That's the beautiful thing about life maintaining the attitude of a student is that I'm still on the same journey. Hopefully the next play I do, I'll be better than the last play I did. Until my faculties give out. It was around this time that you became friends with Amy Poehler, but you didn't get involved with comedy until your mid 30s when you started to work with Amy at her upright citizens brigade theater in New York. Why did it take so long for you to realize your chops? Well, I loved making people laugh. I mean, but when you study legitimate theater at like a drama school basically, comedy is simply one of the things you do. You are hoping to work at theaters that put on a season, so you're prepared to do Shakespeare or Chekhov or Sam Sheppard or absurdist pierron dello or pinter or you name it or musical theater or like phaedo farces. Like you're hopefully in your toolbox, you are able to do anything that's on the season. And one of my favorite things to do was be funny and make people laugh. It's a weird specialization in modern thought. And nowhere is more specialized than Hollywood. Like if my big break was playing a tennis player in a movie, nobody then wants me to audition to play basketball because they say, no, no, no, you're the tennis guy. And so I met Amy, when she was studying at the improv Olympic and second city in Chicago, and I didn't even understand what that meant. I had never been to an improv or sketch theater. And it sounded to me like she was saying she and her friends were making stuff up in a bar. To make people laugh, and I was like, okay, have fun with that. I'm trying to perform works of literature. You know, like I had some weird snotty separation. And then years later, I was like, wait a second. You were on the path to SNL?.

"Most certainly knew that he played Amy Poehler's boss Ron Swanson on the sitcom Parks and Recreation. And you might know he's married to Megan mullally of Will & Grace and he appeared on that show as a plumber. But did you know that Nick Offerman is also a professional boat builder? And that he's written not one not two, but 5 really funny books. His latest is where the deer and the antelope play the pastoral observations of one ignorant American who loves to walk outside. He joins me to talk about his remarkably variegated career and to talk about his brand new book. Nick Offerman welcome to design manners. Thank you so much. I'm so pleased to be here. So is it true that your ultimate soundtrack for lovemaking is Peter Gabriel's music for the last temptation of Christ? Well, I mean, you'd be hard pressed to find a more suitable record, you know, it has it has romance. It has ambiance, and it also has screams of agony. So if you time it right, you know, it's like putting dark side of the moon to The Wizard of Oz. If you sink it upright, everything matches up. What makes it such an aphrodisiac, though, is that is there something about this sort of crescendo? I mean, I don't know, when that record came out for those who aren't familiar with it, it's a mostly instrumental Peter Gabriel tour de force. It's really drum heavy and period sounding, like otherworldly screaming and orchestrations. And so I've just always found it to be really moving. No one has ever asked me why so really examined it, but I guess I guess his rhythm in my own must align something about his music gets my juices flowing. Nick, you were born in the little town of manuka, Illinois, did I pronounce that correctly? That's right, yes. And your mom was a nurse, your dad taught social studies at the local high school. And I understand you grew up working on your grandparents farm where they grew corn and beans and raised pigs. What kind of work did you do on the farm? Oh, just menial labor. I mean, my first job, you know, if you work in agriculture, you hope to have kids because that's your labor pool. And they'll work for a sandwich generally. And so as a really small kid, grandpa would have me shovel out the poop out of the pig barn. That was my first job. Bailing hay, which means writing out behind the Baylor as the hay is harvested and stacking the bales, you know, throwing them up in the barn. And then on a soybean farm, one of the most prevalent summer jobs for young people is called walking beans. Where you actually walk up and down the rows of the entire fields of soybeans, just killing the weeds. We all learn to drive by the time we were 11 or 12, so we could haul empty wagons out to the field to be filled with corn and soybeans and stuff like that. And then just odd jobs. There is another job picking up rocks. So once the harvest would be done and last year's stems would be plowed under and the dirt would be turned over, often rocks, sometimes as big as your head would be turned up in the soil. And so you would be sent out with a tractor and a little trailer to just cover the entire field and pick up all the rocks you see. I read that when you were in the fourth grade studying vocabulary when your teacher taught the class, the word nonconformist. She defined it as a person who did the opposite of what everybody else was doing. Upon hearing that you raised your hand and told misses Christensen, you wanted to be a nonconformist. Where did that sensibility come from? Your question reminds me of at a young age, I want to say maybe first or second grade, I remember an art class. We had this project where we got a little piece of wood and a little paper cut out of a smiling clown head and then another little paper cut out that said a smile is the nicest kind of welcome. And the job was to stain the piece of wood and then glue the clown head and the text onto the thing and then varnish the whole shebang and take it home for mom and dad. And I remember looking at that sentiment, a smile is the nicest kind of welcome and it made me feel kind of whimsical. And so I tilted my clown head to what I considered a rakish whimsical angle and my teacher gave me a C and said, look at this, the head is crooked. And I said, ma'am, that is a rakish angle. I will one day come to know that that's called panache. And so I just always had this sensibility of like adding a little bit of a jaunty kick to whatever I did. And so when I heard that that was called nonconformity. I said, yes, please, please count me in for one of those. Nick, I know you were also an altar boy at church and have said that that helped you become very good at I acting. What is I acting exactly? I mean, you know, just the obvious of acting with your eyes. How do you do that? What I determined from, you know, my first stage was the altar of the Catholic Church where they never gave me any lines. And so I realized if I was going to get any response out of the crowd I was going to have to learn how to use my eyebrows and my intense gaze. And it was there that I began to understand deadpan. I did get to ring the bells a couple times during the mass. And so with my timing and depending on my eye line, I could really make my friends laugh just with my demeanor. And eventually they had me start doing the gospel readings in a position known as the lector. And so then it carried over where I found that if I had the right amount of gravitas and intense focus, the parents would be tricked into thinking that was sincerity and reverence. While all my friends just thought it was the most hilarious Leslie Nielsen in airplane kind of delivery. At that point in your life, what did you think.
