"My next guest is one of the most talented diverse actors i've ever had on the show. Please welcome w earl brown to the show. He's one of the best actors on a plane. That's certainly one of my favorites earl house like treating it today. It's going pretty excellent. I'm gonna tell you right now. I'm gonna kiss your ass. We're here you have perhaps the funniest pin tweet i have ever read in my life and i'll for those of you that are listening. I will go through a really quick in my career. I've been killed twenty twenty eight times so far. I've killed over forty and i lost my baseball that pretty much sums it up. I mean i could not stop laughing that assist in half to say so. I'm reading some ear your tweets here before i get into your life a little bit one. I completely agree with your take on casting directors actors and how they should receive some type of recognition from the from the academy. I am so on board with you on that. That was the first thing i thought when i saw that david but rubin has been named president of the academy that that finally they should be able to get recognition because it's the only department in in all of l. making the only department head. There's a head of casting that there's no oscar recognition in the never has been <hes> and that that's that's wrong so hopefully it will okay so that's that's insane because i have to tell you earl the fact that i had jackie burch on the show. I want to see a year ago. I mean she was the backbone for those unbelievable unbelievable. John hughes movies early on. She's one of the best casting directors on the planet and people don't know that because they know that but there's no you're right. There's gotta be some type recognition for these people's great work. Yeah i'm on board and two more things before we get to your life. You're a huge kiss fan. Is that accurate well. I'm a huge music fan rights across the board. That's like a lot of live shows on but yes as as a kid one of the things that right around the time. I thought i technically cognizant thought that i want to be in movies. I was a ratted kiss fan. Yes <hes> um and then <hes> so <hes> yeah. I've i've gone through numerous times over. You must follow my tweets. I am i'm going on the kiss cruise. I've been invited in years past to go and i can finally do it. I finished production on the show. I'm working on right now. <hes> <hes> right about the time of the crew so that was like you know what i'm going to one of my one of my buddies musician buddies from nationals going with me because my wife has desire higher hispanic tomorrow night in charleston. South carolina is legitimate like crews career away for a couple of weeks. Is that how that work yet. It's a five day cruise. It's a music cruise. I've done it the outlaw country cruise which is x._m. Series <music> outlaw and they do it in conjunction with six men. Six men also produces. The kiss cruise routes on the same boat. It's the same everything that's how i've been invited it. 'cause i've gotten to know all those guys and they found that i was a kiss. Fan like me just spoke so i'm finally doing for me. The twenty five hundred trunking rolling all night darting in every day in the guest navy man gene gene gene simmons does not get enough credit. He's done some beautiful things with make a wish kids but that's another story for another time. Do some really sweet things that people don't know about but the last tweet that i wanted to just before we get into your life is your recognition of the show the boys on prime. How freaking greed is that show. I i love it. I still got to shoot episodes. I think left to go yeah saddam idiots. It's it's disturbing. I'm riveted to it <hes> with you know it's such a social satire commentary on the world. We live in business that worked and the political system that we're all living. It's it's really really good and when you think about it and i won't ruin it for you because you have to left but when you think about it though it's that's exactly how superheroes would be if they existed. They wouldn't be like the marvel crew. They would be exactly like this right. Okay so let's get into your mazing life man here so you're born in western kentucky so the acting buds bog in performance bug has got a bite you right that grandparents grandparents house right because they do a lot of i don't wanna see entertaining because that's a terrible war. They put a well. How would you phrase it was the fourth i peter peter i ever attended was my grandparents torch it. Was you know it was farming. Culture and on the weekends are on sundays usually sunday afternoons afternoons after church. That's where everyone would gather. Isn't that was the one day they wouldn't be working. <hes> the the first time i really thought that i i wanna do that. I mentioned earlier of freshman year in high school three movies that just blew me away that it was the summer seventy seven seventy eight <hes> star wars halloween animal house. Those are the ones youngest pre trees videotape rentals. You know if you saw movie you had to see skaters so the movies i went back to seek multiple times where those three and they were the ones that really planted the seed. I've told by a family friend. I do do not remember this but i can remember being the ham as a kid telling jokes that stuff but she swears when i was around five years old at my grandmother's house. She said what she goes. You look to being you said monday. I'm going to be an actor in movies. I don't i don't remember it but she he swears so i guess that seat was planted earlier animal house. You have to say one of the things that you have that is really difficult difficult to get either. You have it or you don't that's my opinion on. This is a sense of humor because i i always have those people who say well. I'm funny like if you have to tell somebody. You're funny earl. You're not not funny and i believe that you've got that about you. Thanks there is there is a thing of timing that is kind of an inherent thing that if people don't have it you can't learn it <hes> it is an innate thing that really goes to the any kind of skill in any creative pursuit <hes> but yes. I do think there's a lot of great stand up comics folks who were not good actors and there's a lotta great actors who can't do comedy. I always found myself drawn towards the uh the artists that kind of <hes> did everything and shell silverstein and kris kristofferson and you know musicians as in writers and painters actors don't really think it all comes from the same place is different skill sets crafts skills involved also but that that need to create live in the moment and we share that with that i think is universal. No that's really really well said and i was talking to aunt cusak who's in the boys and she brought up second city in chicago and she was talking about that and how how that how you mentioned timing right so she was really focused on the timing part of it so it's interesting to hear you say it that way. It's really really well federal and it's it's just a story from my resume in how you approach stuff i i was a rabid seinfeld fan and i ended up getting cast on seinfeld with guest star and i never really been around. Any of those got is in leary had just won the award for master of my domain which i think alongside vitamin d benjamin lucie is the best half hour of television comedy ever written a bomb. There's some norman lear stuff that i would probably put come in that pantheon but but anyway just line so i find myself on the show cont- they fired another star in the middle of that week. I hadn't seen larry the entire time and we're about to shoot and mine was a big theme at the top of the show that sets the a. n. B. storylines in into play too big seen on a on a bus with george jerry so we've we've been rehearsing on the set. We're going to pre-tape that on an actual bus so there is shows up for the rehearsals we we go through it and as they're pulling the boss on the sound stage he goes earl is comically this. This seems not working not that coming so we go down to the other during the stage and he says let's let's run it. I'll be jordan jerry u._b. L. let's let's let's run it so we do it two or three times and he had this annoying habit habit of shaking his head no ever so slightly as we're doing it because i tell you i tell you what let's switch out the audi al u._b. George and jerry gary. Let's switch so we do it a couple of times switching roles. It was all right. Let's switch back so we slipped back back started doing this thing. He starts shaking his damned head and you know i don't lose my cool hardly ever do i even get nervous but man by ask was clinton in that. I'm gonna get tired. I said all right but let's and as he shaking his head ahead no and when i see all right what's what's the intention at the top of the scene. I mean the beat when i think of in terms of of the beats intentions intentions as an actor. <hes> you know that you enter a scene you you have a purpose for entering seeing that in that whole purpose that arc leeches through the seeing you have beats that that changed through the course of things leading toward the purpose so that's the way i think of stuff and i said so. You'll oh my intention when i entered the scene i i don't know him from from this week and he's looking at me with this incredulous look on his face me like i said oh. I didn't say this but i thought it. She doesn't think black a playwright. He doesn't think what beatson intentions each strictly comic rhythms bets. Ah the rhythm and pace of the saying fuck do it again. Let's do it again. I go back to the top and basically impersonated canadian him doing the part. That's it that's it. That's it that's it. That's the thing so that you know that was a learning process because that's the way he approaches stuff <hes> and then of course when we got he put himself in the scene as the man in the cape running on the bus and we get on the bus. I was too tall for the lights. I had to squat so that my face would appear on camera. I had he was the most unnatural thing in the world on on on camera on the frame it will but i had to do was incredibly comfortable and then we start filming the damn seen i can see his ball all hit the corner of my eye checking when he says that you know the larry sanders show exaggerated. I buy per cell nice not exaggerating there <music> but that but that's a that's a great point you bring up because you kind of he just has a different approach of how to do things. I mean look at your. I mean when i said had you were a diverse actor. I wasn't kidding all your work. Your filmography filmography is amazing so you must have as an actor those little. Those are the little things you have to learn along along the way that that obviously make you the actor you are today right. It's those little moments right. Is that a good way of looking at it yes but but it looks like not every situation. Are you perfect for our baseball game on right now. Not every great player fits on every t- recruit them and and in that situation it was it was uncomfortable for me. It turns out. It's aren't you know i'm i'm fine in it. I'm in the same cell thing <hes> and then other times. There's situations where it's just like. You know it's a perfect perfect fit. You just immediately click in with everybody that you're working with. Deadwood was that was just a really rare her <hes> situation that we were all firing on all cylinders and and we knew that we have something unique and it created hit a bond that that still exists a jerry stone pot that still exists between all of us yeah. It's an absolute work of art. I'm going to touch on that in a moment. I'm so yeah you we talked about these experiences. You you end up getting a bachelor's degree murray state you get your m._f._a. At depaul to great schools so so we get early on earl that you're the acting bug is bidu. You're you're very talented. You're you're certainly met to what you're doing but where who is your biggest influence fluence kinda coming along we mentioned some movies. We mentioned some moments but whether it's the paul murray state. Is there a mentor or somebody kind of growing up or developing your your your skill. Is there somebody that you really credit more than anybody else or is it just the the <hes> all these things taking into account as one like i think yes there's absolutely been great teachers along the way i think getting a little metaphysical here but i think the universe sent you. The teachers features that you need in these places in your life just has to be open and aware you know and and i can look back. I mean the first major influence. I was a high school teacher. Our speech in debate coach larry england mccallum county high school. He demanded the best of you. He demanded and did you work <hes> and he always said look winning is a byproduct of being at your best and he said here's here's the deal. We're all from a farming community in western kentucky. There's nothing wrong with being a farmer with being a carpenter would be with as long as you choose that as long as that's what you wanna do with your life but don't let think just because of the background you're from anything's possible and my group of friends that we're in that group with me are highly successful. Ones the senior v._p. Of united healthcare at boston one is the assistant general manager of jack daniels. Thanks bert one is he's now on his own but he was with oracle years out of dallas <hes> and we joke about something the water amongst us that we we kind of set off of each other and challenged each other and we all got out and did something else with our lives <hes> so that and then in college of martin allen oscar was the head of a theater department when i took an acting class on a whim i had no idea what i was going to do when i started college of the first my family to ever go to college and mark but then eight professional actor at one point in his life and he's the one who kind of pulled me aside and when you have something special you have so there was him i don the second city chicago there was going it can in graduate school and then in the professional world.

"And last year he was just pretty much ineffective. So what does this do in terms of the future money before we talk about what the motivations behind the wheel work? One of the most striking things about this. A lot of us expected the bucks to make a move to lower their burden for the nineteen twenty season because, you know, clearing, more space, can open up more capacity to pay per glow Pez or theoretically, maybe space under the tax to resign. All of their guys, you know, hover, you wanna think about it, but this deal as presently construct, you know as as it sits right now, does more to save the bucks money in twenty twenty twenty one than this upcoming season. Now that can shift pretty significantly if management John Horace decides to stretch the final season of worst contract, they could extend basically split that nine million three little chunks, and that would cut about six million off of their books. That's option is open to them, and, and the bucks, even in this case because the stretch deadline is in for a little while they kind of play this by year two they can just wait and see if. They need to stretch him. See what Malcolm Brogdon gets paid. For example, or what Lopez needs or Khris Middleton that kind of stuff? But as of right now, it's more savings for two for next season rather than the upcoming. Yeah. With lured Scott shocked expiring addenda next year Snell, so going on with a player option possibly could pick that up for that twelve point two million. So you get that off the book sex year. And although, yon is's, doesn't it per veteran extension. Should he agree to it next on our wouldn't kick in until the twenty one twenty two league year? So they're not looking at a huge increase other than just your normal increases any contracts that they would sign this year does open up space for next year. It seems to me though, that where this is headed is to just open up more room under the tax and just not have the punitive of stretching lure be as bad as it would be for Snell, smell. It would have been stretching it over five years have about twenty four million in salary. Total. So you'd be looking at almost five million on your books for the next five years, that very, very difficult to deal with, if they do re-sign Yannis, they're going to have some financial constraints, obviously, as well. If you stretch lure you only got the three million on the books for the next three years, the bucks, by the way, already have three point eight million of dead money on their books this year with Spencer Hawes, who they got in a brilliant trade to get off of miles Plumlee, where would they be if they hadn't been able to do that move and then Larry Sanders is all another guy who kinda wanted out of just being in the NBA 'em took a significant reduction of that four year, forty four million dollars essentially signed years and years ago? He's still on there for another three seasons going forward at at one point nine million just as a refresher about their books. So that seems where this is heading lure doesn't really provide any value on the court other than the potential hilarity of him playing over DJ Wilson and the bucks Twitter suffering, collective aneurysm, but aside from that. That I'm not sure that I really like the asset player. I mean, also maybe you could also say that lure be easier to move at the deadline if they wanted to save some tax money, although, of course, they are out a number of her Sean picks grim Ford including now this year's, but I'm not sure about how much they really got back here because I don't see Snell is like completely dead money. Like I think he's actually going to be a pretty useful player for the pistons next year. Right. So the difference in salary over these two years between Snell and John lure is about fourteen million dollars and that means based on the current pricing. You could go through numerous traits that have been recently. Yeah. The thirtieth pick is the worst first-round pick, but they basically under the normal that they basically treated Snell is completely dead salary, and that is shocking, because, Well, I, I still like snow much better as a shooting guard than defending like I don't think he's great defending the biggest wings. He can be a valuable rotation player..

"Right. Whereas others had always been approached by filmmaker. Do you mind if we document? Yeah. Cleared all of us that Madonna had chose to chosen to document her sight. So my my own personality backstage was an asshole and lunatic. You know, I the cameras would be following me. And I would be talking. This is before you know, sort of Larry Sanders, and even the and right, and I would talk to the cameras it was following me back. A none would appear from in full regalia from a doorway. And I would say, oh, just a moment. Thank you sister. And she would say thank you for the check in the donation, and I would say this is unnecessary to do this in front of the camera. I would go into hug her, and I read this physical mover, you go into hug someone immediately from the hug position shoot your pelvis and buttocks backwards. If you'd been need in the black. So. Had a lot of that. And I found that might be my most enjoyed comedic work. I've ever done was for stating. Asshole version of but it's a strain for me. And maybe if it was for you to it's total. It's your totally naked doing that yourself down to the ugliest part of yourself. And you know, you know, in you somewhere, it's they're the only way this is going to be funny as if I am naked, and let us absolutely happen. Absolute and later, I can claim I it was heightened right? And there's you know, there's a sequence. And I'm not the star of the movie that my wife is Clark. She's clar the stories is about the the mother, but I'm such a narcissist. And that, you know, I'm in my studio on the third floor yelling at my agent because I've lost a role on something. And I'm painting something, and you don't know what I'm painting until I hang up the phone and move away. And I'm painting a self portrait myself. And and it's like, you know. That's true. I mean, I am Narcisse. I'm an actor. Of course, I'm going to be narcissistic. It's it's a trait. I don't wanna show people. Well, that I do in this movie that might be the hidden joy might have just discovered it which is. To to allow those inner thoughts to command when we've spent our lives protecting ourselves from anyone knowing exactly that's what Clarice goes did for me acting in it. I think it differ bridie and Abby too because they're playing awful awful characters to we're nasty to each other takes place through the course of one evening, and as we get increasingly bombed during the night, it we become meaner and mean, more bidder and more jealous of each other's successes and all of that and all of that is there in this business. And so the Genesis she had this family already when she approaches you and the rest of the family with the idea was at by giving you the script was in her conversation. I'm thinking about doing this. She had written a pilot for herself and me to do. That was loosely based on Ryan O'Neal in Tatum O'Neill's relationship and test, and that that reality show that they had and I thought it was a great idea. And and, but I think bridie she wrote it, and then like me she'd probably put it she put it down. And then she started thinking in kind of a larger term larger terms of the dynamic in our family and the dynamics of the actual family or family that's in show business. And then that if all into you know, this. Geno Rowlands kind of approach to the mother character. Because you know, Brady's big fan of Geno, Gina I never noticed Jenner. And so it it went from this two person thing into this family thing. Right. And then for her the the idea of using all of us and not not having actors playing us. Added a meta level to the whole project and shooting it in our house was also cheaper. Because it was you know, a kick starter movie wasn't..
"larry sanders" Discussed on The HoopsHype Podcast With Alex Kennedy
"He was one of my sleeper picks just because this Milwaukee's him needs spacing. They need shooters and Ilyasova with someone that played so well in Philadelphia. Last year he was there during their, you know, stretch at the end of the season where you know the only loss, you know, handful of games. And I think just like you, you know, just like earth on is going to help Milwaukee with spacing. I think Brooke Lopez's going to the same thing. And if you look, this is the best center that Jaanus ought to the Kubo has ever played with. If you look back at all the centers, these had, you know, John Henson thought maker, Greg Monroe, Tyler Zeller of multiple Plumlee is. Zog miles and Marshall Zaza Pachulia Larry Sanders and he got Larry Sanders. You know what? He wasn't even at his peak whenever it was all excited relatives, Sanders. So I mean, not only is the best is played with, but as you could tell all those names, I mentioned, none of them can you know, shoot the three, and that's what Brooke has been able to add to his game rook is that a very good job? And I want to commend him for this of a adjusting his game to the modern NBA where you know he can shoot the three ball. You know, last year he knocked out one point five, three per game and shot thirty four point five percent from three the. That's amazing for a guy who I believe in his first seventy seasons in the league. He attempted like one three or something like that. You know, he is become a three point shooter after never shooting threes initially in earlier in his career. So he's been able to do that. And he's the kind of guy that gets better every single off season 'cause he works extremely hard and not only. Is he the best center that Janas played with? Not only is the great fit because of his shooting and the fact that he can spread the floor. And you know, opened up some lanes for guys like Janas and Chris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe Eason amazing locker room guy. You know, you talk to guys that play with him on the nets. Talk to guys that play with when the Lakers he gets along with everyone. He's like that glue guy that brings people together, you know, he's making sure everyone's coming, you know, go to movies together or getting together for dinner and that kind of really important. We just talked about a Washington locker room that certainly could use that kind of thing where you're bringing everyone together and guys are getting along off the court which translates to success on the court. So this is the bucks team that you know they're trying to make that next step. They're trying to climb standings in the Eastern Conference. And I think brook Lopez is going to do a fantastic job on the floor and in that locker room, you know, with the, you know, some of the guys they're bringing everyone together. I, I'm excited to see what he can do. Because you know it was interesting you look at, what do you do with the Lakers this past year? And he wasn't bad. You know, he averaged I wanna say thirteen points or fourteen points per game, but he played a significantly if you're minutes venue had in previous years, you know, if you look at, you know the years before last last season. He was putting up twenty twenty two points per game. You know, we've seen he can do that. You know what with his post moves shooting in the mid range shooting threes. So with him play more minutes as expected him to do in Milwaukee, you know, playing alongside so Mazda players that are going to be able to kick the ball out to him after drives, you know, Jaanus creates. He just, you know, demand so much attention from defenses. Brooke is going to get some opportunities from that. You have Bledsoe Middleton. As I mentioned, I think he's a perfect fit Milwaukee. He'll help them in the locker room as well. I didn't interview with him about two months ago, one or two months ago. And he's just so excited to be Milwaukee. He said, if you make a win the Eastern Conference and represent the east in the finals, you know, that may be bold and and an a bit much..

"Because you have to look at what the landscape was like when he started when Gary was making, it's Garry shandling show in the eighties. It was very creative show. He broke the fourth wall and had a lot of imaginative sequences and television wasn't like that. If the time it was pretty traditional and he basically broke every rule. It was like sitcom on acid and a lot of his writing staff left and created the Simpsons and and his approach to comedy. And a lot of the devices that he was doing on his show, turned into a lot of what you see on the Simpsons in terms of, you know, flashbacks and fantasy sequences and just the pure imagination ambition. But at the same time, the emotional life of it which of course also is, is James Brooks who who was somebody that Gary certainly was inspired by, we all watched the Mary Tyler Moore show and and thought, well, that's the way you do this. It's it's comedy with a, that's about being a human being. And, and so he changed the landscape that way and. And then when he did the Larry Sanders show, he did a show that was a documentary feel of behind the scenes of talk show that was very truthful and about the human condition. And there was no laugh track and they weren't shows like that. At that time, there was only one or two shows that didn't have an audience. And I think a lot of people watch that show and said, oh, you can do it this way. An HBO said that when they saw the Larry Sanders show, they realize, oh, this is what HBO should be. And it became the model for type of creative ambition that led to other things and David chase sought. And he said, it's one of the things that inspired him to to write this apprentice because he saw it on, oh, we're allowed to do this now and and, and a lot of the style of comedy that you see everywhere you could trace back to Gary work at before I let you go one line. Gary kept him writing in the journal which I found so so striking which was this is how I'll be remembered. This is how I'll be remembered. And what exactly was he hoping he'd be remembered for. That's a good question because I didn't ever talk to Gary about that. Gary was very proud of the Larry Sanders show and he he didn't. He didn't ever talk about legacy. He was very interested in getting Larry's show on a service and ultimately was back on HBO where people could find it and see it easily. So I know he he wants to be able to see it, but. I think a lot of what he did to be remembered or to have an impact was to make this choice to mentor people, and he made himself accessible to the comedy community, and he knew the impact he was having, you know, when he was young, George Carlin read a bunch of jokes and encouraged him to go into comedy, and that really changes life. And I felt like as a result of that, he did that to me. And then I thought, well, I guess, is how how it works you Gary to me, I'll do it for Seth Rogan and Amy Schumer. And I think there's a butterfly effects to that. I recently did one of those master classes and I was thinking, should I do this? It's kinda, it's kinda weird and it's a sit and talk for five hours. And then I thought, you know, separate from, you know, it's a business thing. I thought, no, it's great to tell everyone how to do this. I wish there were more people trying to spend their lives, making people laugh making. Think about all these issues and what it means to be alive. And I want more comedy writers out there.
