Whether it be horses or or sports events and the funny thing is rosenthal's the most famous handicapper out of chicago. But he really learned his trade from someone. Gov donald the wizard of oz. Odds angelini a genuine sports handicapping genius Very quiet guy. Gentle guy but Very much a made member of the outfit that made the millions and of dollars in. And that's where lefty learn to really learn graph as well interesting. I didn't know that so by the eighties. Go up through the sixties. He's making a lot of money. Oh there's an interesting thing this you know any more about this. That lennon is partner. Dave yara extorted a three hundred thousand dollars from allen. Dorfman that is that is. How'd that come down. Oh sure that they do a lot of places car dealerships. Pizza parlors simply say. Listen you wanna keep in business. You're going to pay us this amount of money and this would come out in later years in the gus. Alex trial the carlucci trial that they would make a threat to firebomb the place. You know where you're going to have an accident For the bomb underneath someone's car not meant to kill him a meant to scare him and that's how they made a lot of money or lenny. Patrick was not just a did not just a sports book guy he was. He admitted admitted to killing seven people. So there are at least seven that we know of. And by the sixties late sixties early seventies lenny. Patrick was a capo in the chicago mob. In all but name right wasn't italian so they wouldn't give him the name but chicago operates a little differently than we realized. It's decentralized it's one family but each street crew operates almost like its own family and the capos of these crews have enormous power and discretion in. Lenny patrick was one of those five or six guys that ran the day to day operations. The chicago mob. He was really up there. So that murder tampon allen dorfman several years before he was actually murdered. That was probably This lenny patrick's extortion attempt to make it. Look like somebody was about to get him. Sure sounds like i always wondered what the deal was like that because he was such a big money maker for and they must have had they must have gotten together and said you know we could. We could get some money off this dude. I'm sure he had to share it. And and i know we had a guy can't sit. He put a bomb wasn't extended. Do really hurt anybody. But he put a bomb and a guy's car or he had to do it and then he goes back around. He said you know so. I know those boys it did that. They're mad at you but calmed down. I can take care of this..

Big Lead over television series for Channel Four thing called buried. Amazing. That was yeah. Do you know that was my first audition drama school or your kid me seemed like everybody addition for that I took a very wise to Manchester on the. But, it's. Yes I did Octavian. Story. About buried anyway. I did buried, which was also my first introduction to to Simon Moyle to Simon and world and stuff like that and it was. A forget I'll tell you so. I go I. Go tell this is going to take a little bit of time but you gotta cut it down right. Time it's. It's. It's Saturday morning I'm back. At home. Just getting up and I got a telephone call from Stevie j from Stephen Graham. And and any of the calls me uncle Lenny and he goes uncle any do you?

My agent on the Monday and said. What's this thing? Berry? She goes? No. I've been to get you into in for it, but they won't see you and I when one on the go they just won't won't see and I go. What can I ever? Can I have read it and she went what I've got. I've got a copy but you can't tell anybody you've read it. Because you know they, they've been very tight about who gets the the whole script to new doesn't get the whole script. So I read it and I was like. This is fantastic. Mom I wa not being seen for this so I phoned back and I went already I think it's fantastic. Why won't they see me and they said they said something like your too familiar of face on television. So they want complete unknowns and I was like that's just bonds. Could you don't? See if you can get in, she was I I'll try but they they won. So she tries and they won. And I'm like of vats annoying and then about. Two weeks later. She phones me up and says they're only seen people in Manchester. Willing to see you but you're gonNA have to get yourself there on your own. And and I was I and my. Missus his like you're not driving all the way to Manchester for people who don't want to say. And I was like I think it's really pop and she was going you're not driving all the way to Manchester, for people don't say well, if you've got no shame and I was I. Well I think he's a good part lead par and I think I could. I could do stuff with this one. So I'm going and. So I jumped in my car. And I drove four. Or wherever it was to to. Manchester. Turned out on the doorstep everybody these uncle was there auditioning and they were doing really. Windy Wind Day oh dishes or people who? everybody was reading the same stuff, but people were having to improvise all. Yeah. I was sat waiting. For. After my time supposed to be the. Thing I, the two o'clock appointment something I went in to. To see them about. Four thirty something another? Yes if it. was. Livid and winning and I I they said. With can you just read the thing? So I just read the thing they went. Thank you very much. That was it and I was like. Okay Okay. So I go back in my car drove home hours I. Okay well, Mommy says was right. Shouldn't have done that just won't take one. No, I, read it twice. On, I got to read it twice and then. Cut to about three weeks later. I. Spoke to my agent may say she said. that. They are looking at and she named another actor who they were interested in and I was I okay. Fair enough as good actor. So well, sweet cut you know cut it off and in the meantime I. I- auditioned for the Hollywood film and. And I. This Hollywood film. So that was going to be shooting in the states and Lena for minute it was a big deal and. A phone call from. From the buried people saying that they would like to see me a gain of would I come back to Manchester and I went on the drive in order way to Manchester for two minutes or wherever it was. And my agent said, no this time they will pay for pay for us. I'm going first class on the on the train. So back in the day when they paid for recalls back. Pay for Rico's so they paid for me this time and I went back up and. And I went in and I kind of was another really long wieldy thing and we did did it and I read it and we did a couple of improvisation and we did a couple of stuff and then I came out and I've literally had to wait for. Two and a half hours, and then they called me back in to do these improvisisation with some other people in the improvise ation and by this point I was either you know you don't know it. But the improvisisation they'd set up was I was kind of like stepfather to these two younger. Guys and one of the Brothers thinks the I've been been a bit handy with his mom like, Hey, is mom and he confronts me in order to do and it was. Really. Sweet Guy Account members nine but he ended up being in a and he was really sweet guy kind of really raw kind of actor for Manchester. And we're doing the scene and he's he's doing really good and the director who? Already knew was the one of. And Lennie James. He's been on too many things on the telly and we as any being in cold feet or something. and. As he's Gina. Gina Martin and all of that sort of stuff and it gets to the point as you would the kate puts hands on me. So the kate in the improvisisation kinda grabs a hold of me and usually that's the point when someone will call it stop but these directors letting it go let go and and I kinda May. So I was like trying to act out of it and the you know the kid is just going for you could save. is in it and I had to. I had to down this kid. So in the in the improvisisation pin down on the floor and how hold him down. So this is made the impo. Jonah hold it together trying to show the on the pin this guy down there on the floor.

"Couple of mates when I left home when. Jim May Andy. Who In my? Year. Dramas And we moved to a really damp flat in Tulse Hill but we love and we kind of we looked after each other and And helped out to out to get through. The was it towards the end of the first year that you you found the bill yourself up a bit mall. Or take a bit longer into gun. It was weird because I was I was still part of the theater company that the Youth Data Company that was run by Lucia young. At the. Lyric Hammersmith and and I was writing for them by that point and. Is that is that when he started writing then I'm Writing when I was right after I did my first play when I did my father's play. When I was like I said fifteen sixteen yeah, and and. Hanging out with all the. Kids who WANNA be actors or want to work in theater we ended up talking about. About plays and I don't know how the compensation. Remember, but it came up to you could write a play and I said, I could riot play and one of the guys set up but you can't and I went up I could. So I went and wrote a play and. And wrote in Longhand upstairs in my bedroom and my foster families house. I wrote in long hand up in my bedroom. Then I went to the south London press newspaper in the classified to find someone who would talk it up for me and then I go. Then I found someone who talked it up. She was a bit lost on some of the colloquialisms but she talked it up for me and And then I entered into the National Youth Theatre playwright in competition and it won. A. One I didn't know that and then. I was I was kind of a one on one. The award I shared it with another writer who's now with director could Ed camp and we were jointly Awarded the prize of most promising playwright under twenty one for nineteen, eighty, three or something like that and then. So then I was I on expose I. I can write place now and And then. I remember being home and getting a phone call from a lady from Faber and Faber who said, I'm just reached. I'm just contacting you for your buy at the back of the book and I said the what now and when we would just like. We've got a bit of a biography about you. We just wondered whether or not this. You're okay with this and I went what is this? Four. And she says, no one told you and I went no. No, what what what is it and she said we're publishing your play and. said. Say Yes fe grew favor. Publishing your in an anthology of new and up and coming playwrights and your place being included and when did I And share when we I am surprised no one's kind of and literally no one told me until she found out about this bioch-, and at and as it turned out one of the judges on the for the National Youth Theatre was the. Critic, for the finite fatal critic for the Financial Times and he was asked by favorite faber to recommend new and up and coming playwrights and a decidedly to to kind of pick me and it was for that period of time. It was it was it was crazy. So I. I. For, my I. Ever, play I got it, and then I wrote my. Play and it won the competition and then it got published and because it won the competition and I was one of the few winners from London I went on capital radio to on their kind of often drive time show to talk about being a south. London caters just one this play in competition and I talked to them about it, and then when I was leaving the producer stopped me and when she go to the theater much and I go do yeah because my are doing plays and things go she offerings theater critic and. Sorry, and they said we'll pay ten quid a minute of every time the for when you're on the radio. But yes yes. I've. Literally, and then all of a sudden for about. Must have been about a year. or so. Once, a month I would go in on this same show and I was capital Radio's fringe theatre critic for for a little bit. I was seventeen years old my God is value saying was like this is all right. And So I mean I mean not obviously. Helped with my shyness and I am and my confidence just because you know it was good and then you know I think it was auditioning to drama school with that kind of put an end to. Be Nice to be on the radio and all of that really, and also on the ever going to see my made some plays and given them great reviews. Critic. Best friend Gabby people would like. So Yeah I did that for a bit and and then you know kind of went to drama school gonNA each and. and kind of working from. The moment I left school. Really. You you touched upon That there was. Very few you sort of. Black people in your year or the year above and who your mix with. What about teachers was that predominantly white? That? All of them I'm trying to think. If just told you a lie. Now think about. Thirty sometimes, when guests direct has come in second guess people comment I was just wondering if anybody came in. Know what we have is. A Malik. Yeah lovely on. Matic. who was massive kind of hop throw at that time I, think he had done passage to India by so processed patterns German the crown jewel in the crown yes that was it and. He was a fine looking men and Oh, and he came in to give us a kind of seminar on acting on camera the end. And I remember I remember he was. He was really interesting, but that was as close. As about as close as it got. One of the things that the guild whole allowed you to do. was. Very few people is that they? Again when I was at drama school i. Because we I was of the lyric theatre. There was a period where the lyrics. studio space. Just because of when a show was finishing and when a new show was coming up. They were going to be dog have nothing in there for a month or something and. And they offered the spice to us. Right I just say if you WANNA do in that, you can. You can do something so. So A couple of wrote plays and I. wrote a play. For for that time in the in the youth, this change it up being the play. That me and my missus got together doing she was part of the Youth Theatre. I wrote a play about someone like me going out with someone who looked like. And we ended up doing the to hand to play together and then first time we did it. We weren't together second time we did it. We were together on pretty much been together ever since. And and then. They offer. Another space. And I wrote and wrote and directed. A play that was on the. The. Lyric in one of the talk periods and and of people from drama school came down to see I must have been in my second year. Point and everybody argues I was using to actors three actors in the play that were. In by year at drama school and I was using the The main actor was one of my mates from the. The Youth Theatre, which wasn't a youth data anymore by that point, we've become a kind of. Defacto fears company. So So I wrote this play this forehand and is three people from drama school mom who who wasn't so low two from drama school came down and I. Don't know what it was that they were expecting but I know they weren't expecting a soul.

Eloquent and passionate. And intelligent, and is really really good company. So let's get back to it. This is part two. Of the two podcast with Lennie James Enjoy and you'll see you in a bit. Someone was asking me the other day What with Pandemic and always how hard is prior to all this? Twenty this year. That's nonsense. For Drama Students Anyway. But then I was thinking about old. The young guns graduate and Now Ya. And Civilisation How I said I have no idea. I have no idea because I know how hard it is. The Best of times alone now. I. Mean It's I was speaking to a mayhem on the other day use Cape was at a drama school that had to. Look at stop and go viral and stuff and they. Didn't get back inside for kind of graduation. So even all of the stages. You know they get an aging. Daniel. First job kind of I mean, what is This year's crop of drama students GonNa do now looking can I've never forget there's no way you can to units no way you can teach drama on zoom it just. It just there's no way you can. You can solve their a showcase. Ridiculous I mean it's I mean I'm I'm really very. Glad I went to drama school but Jesus Christ. It was hauled particularly the first year I. I. I was just a I went to the Guildhall. if you don't know the guilt whole, it's brought in it was I think it still is actually is sin the Balkan right next door to in the richest square mile for a star is in the richest square mile in the entire country. It's right bang in the middle of middle of the city. It's the home was behind the ROTC I don't know if they're still there. And And I. Remember having a A. Heated discussion. With Lucy who is a director who ran the youth to the I was appalled of who brand lyric theatre and I remember I had said I wanted to go to drama school and she was adamant I shouldn't that they would. Take away all the things that would make me me and all the things that were different in that they would have you speaking differently lenny and and you know turn you out as you know a off. Speaking kind of. WanNa be arrested actor and I was adamant that that no one was going to do that and I wouldn't allow that. Happen. But also I was. Again lean kind of having the conversation I was forced to come up with the reasons why I wanted to go to school, and it was because I just was. Particularly when I was at the The National Youth Theatre and. You would doing the cost work that you that you dating Kinda groups. Everybody had these points of reference the I had no idea about. I had no. Knowledge. Of Strindberg or oil, you know not a passing knowledge of Shakespeare but you know nothing I my knowledge, all these things that they talk about or that they would references everybody knows that I didn't know. So I was very clear about the fact that I was going to drama school to learn I was going to drama school. It was about education absolutely about education. It was the knowledge on it was one of the things A. Was Important to my foster family because I needed to be if I was going to go and do this, take this risk. I needed to do it properly. And make sure that it wasn't seen as jolly that it wasn't seen as me just wasting my time prancing around pretending to be a streaky. Bacon and. And so I had to I. You know I when it like. When it like it was kind of serious and which you know which you gain going into a new environment. I just kind of. Clare's Dan shutdown closed in shutdown. Yeah. Just walked out just be you know the guy kind of watching everything and? then. kind of speed but didn't didn't feel comfortable. That are although I was one of. Three. Three people in my year. A Year of how many what? Twenty, five, twenty, twenty, five, twenty, six, times two, and then it'd be. It was two of us and then became three and there were other black guys and goes in the the other. Two years above us when I first got there. But it wasn't particularly working class it wasn't. It wasn't anybody. It went too many people that I could kind of. Feel kind of comfortable. With an around the NFL exposed because that's kind of walked drama school is asking you to be and didn't feel like I had. There was anybody watching my back, but luckily, it was It was the whole school of Music and drama. And And they were. They were guys there who were part of the reggae philharmonic they were guys there who were of Courtney Pines fan to run the jazz calls Omar. was there as well. Steve Awesome was was there as well so I tended to grab. gravitate study in the first year I gravitate basically. To where the black vote were and just kind of an went up onto my current corridor. as little as possible, and I didn't know the rules of engagement either really. So if they were, you know particularly in the year above me they were. The guys who? The big personalities of the year they're thing was about taking the pace out of everybody and And I played rugby. Can went to an all boys school So I was used to people taking the side. Yeah. But taking the piss out of but a felt like when I would come back at them in the way that you would do in the south London school felt really threatened. Be Intimidating. And Warm just joking just like you you know when I threatened to. Break your neck I'm just kidding. Equals like that. But it it was that kind of sense the. They will make you an assumptions about me that one about me and and that just felt uncomfortable for me I grew into it and and like I said, I'm very very glad that I went to Drama School Burnett's first year of.

There is a narrative which is you know you didn't have a father of your own and so you know you go looking for it or you make yourself into the father that you never had or whatever. Those things are true and all of those things to. To kind of happen. And I'm I'm member speaking to one or other or Goes, on the compensation has come up about my dad and then. They asked. Have you never wanted to go me Imo of you never wanted to find out about a move you never. You know if you never is there not H that you WANNA scratch and to be honest there isn't I didn't. I didn't I didn't grow up. With an overly conscious sense of. Not Having A. Dad. That's probably down to the job. My Mum did. When? When she was alive but There were. Men around mom has had. Five brothers four or five brothers and two of those uncles I was very. Aware often very close to and they were they were they in London May. They were Nottingham. They. Let people that we would go and then, and then at one point, my uncle nat moves to America and but before we moved to America for a little bit. His son came and lived with us for a little bit me and my mom and my brother and my cousin Franklin came and lived with us while my uncle setting himself up in America, and then he came back in and Got Franklin and so those two uncles who Very much kind of father figures. Full ME I. MOM had a couple of boyfriends over the years one of which. Benji drove the number nine, hundred, five bus and was a lovely man and he was he was kind of there for us even. After I'm a mom died and And then there was a a friendship that we had kind of up with A. Kind of a police officer well, a friend and just happened to be a police officer, but his name was Steve Is. And he was a police officer in Great Yarmouth and we met him. Kind of just. In the most opera tree kind of way we grew on. A kind of. Bible retreat with the Church because we used to go to church a lot and we want a Bible retreat with the church in Nottingham and not not an Darbyshire somewhere. Right and we were staying at this kind of like. Now, you describes Zach Gulf. But we were saying that one of those kind of. Hotels and. At the same time Steve was there with a number of Police officers on speed driving course to learn to drive to Scott cars squad cosby fast and. I was very shy kid I don't know what came over me to say this but I come down to stay me and my brother come down the stays and there's all of these police officers all lined up all in their uniform and I must have been. Six or seven some of that, and a painfully shy kid and I just went even an old and. Ran Ran away from them and an awful that was the end of it but then some reason we bumped into each other again. Kind of is about twelve years old and then us any kind of befriended US and befriended mom and they became friends and he's been like A. like a big brother kind of slash kind of father figure to us kind of ever seen some. Godfather to raise kids and. And you know wearing I'm not in contact as much as we were but you know. He's still very much of my life. And when. Why Why were you when your mom died? Lennox was eleven eleven ten eleven. And did we when you and your brother? were. Put into children's. Into the same home where you get together. Kept together, I mean that was that was one of the. That was one of the big lessons and one of the things that they did well I mean. I mean it goes without saying. That you know I would have much preferred. To stay home with my mum. But if something should be like. Losing your mom happens and you can do a lot worse than being in the kids home that me and my brother. Ended up in it was. So big Georgian mansion on on just across the road from tooting BEC common is great to listed building back garden was about the size of half of a football pitch and it was eighteen kids at route eighteen kids in an always had eighteen kids in the staff stuck around. So there wasn't a big turnover staff. So kids felt safe kids vote secure and me and my brother were there but there were other families who were there and who were kept together. But also it was a place that was large enough to accommodate. He like me and my brother were amongst. The cates who were there? There was one of. Katie was there are the eighteen? Who Was Orphaned or was completely estranged from their parents everybody else that had some kind of contact. With their parent. Now in some way were connected in some of them would go home to their parents for the. For the hall of Christmas or stuff like that, or the parents would come to the kids home and have Christmas dinner around around the table and And like I said, it was it was you know it's not a situation that you would opt to be in but if if something happened to you I'm we. We were in a we're in a good home beamed Tan four by good people. Ban You know as you said, someone who was painfully shy being thrust into. A Children's home, which is like you know. School again. How how did you go into retreat into yourself or did you? It was. It was wave run because it was very as a as a shy kid when I lost my mom I just became shire in a way I guess, Kinda stop speaking and I would kind of mumble the word to my brother but I just I stopped speaking for a long time I don't even know how long but.

And I don't and And it's the same you know. 'cause. We were there. From why no we were there when my mom was with my dad and then we moved to London when she went and I have I have no memory of him either. So He's So I I must being anything from a year to eighteen months. When we when we moved to south London and kind of. was there ever spent to Sunday thing? What was the? Decision to move to Southampton from your MOM's point of. Work thing no, it wasn't really don't. Again I don't know to be absolutely honest for sure and I think it was about. From why can have gone over the years? I'd lost contact with I. Lost My mom when I was young and So lost contact with a lot of my family am for a good number of years. My brother went to live in the kids home and then I was fostered when I was. Fifteen sixteen and But then I got back in contact with. A cousin of mine and she was an older cousin of money she is she is. Like on an eight seven or eight years older than me so when we were. Kids she was she was my grownup teenage cousin, but she also hung around with. My Mom, we're very close and and I speak into her one night round place her theory on it was that my. Mom. Left not to get away from my dad. And and it was a it was a kind of escape thing says he took us to and and left, and initially she was in. Shepherd's Bush and I I think she just got. offered. A place to live that was in in Battisti. So am we to Battisti for a man. As we grew up we needed someplace else and she goes places strengthen stretch some. Kind of became the place that we were from. An did you got back in touch with that closer to sort of? Tireless. ansel join any dot so. No just it was. I. Do you know what it was I'm having kids changed a lot. for May and wanting to be in contact with family and what in my kids to know who my side Of of the family and I'm and have, A and B. And have a knowledge or understanding of Of being from Trinidad, my family Trinidadian and And it was and it's it's an important part of. Of A kind of my identity. Really. So I want my kids to. To know that they come from very my wife comes from a very close. Knit. Family and And we were very kind of close to them and I. AM although I I I was very also very close to my my foster family. I. Wanted I. wanted it to be wider. I wanted to for them to know as much as possible because they were gonNA ask questions and they would you know you the inevitable things that some of the questions I can answer and some of I couldn't. But also I just my. My my cousin is a is a fantastic cook. And and my goals just loved being in house and just love being around her with the kids and grandkids and. And it was a, it was just a French. She always makes she always makes a house, a place that you want to be and and I remember that from. From growing up because. Her Mom my Auntie Norma. Place was a bit like that. It was a went down there was always someone stain. There was always someone you know at some member of the family who was over for a for and was staying there and and gay kind of trade. The same things are just kind of. Just wanted my kids to know and and I didn't know that until I started having kids say, okay, this is important to me and I think kids do that to you is that they constantly making you decide who you walk because they gonNa ask you. They can almost questions and you're going to if they may will be questions that you've. You've never fell off before on leather thinking that you were going to have to explain it out loud. So you end up finding out about yourself. We've kids. That was one of the things I found out about myself how important that was and delve deeper, and you never know what's going to come out amounts from. Mid. Eight weeks. Yeah. It took me. By, surprise because until that point, my narrative was that my dad left. And what my cousin was saying no, it was your mum who left to to to get wife to get away from him and and that that's a big shift. In your narrative really. So it was. A baby. But it. Did, you. have. Any contact with your dad? You and you put the left. Again not that I know of I, don't. You know I was a little and at the beginning, but I have no memory of him I believe. On on the first time we went on Holiday Inn to meet family in Trinidad. I believe he was there at the same time but Didn't come.

Here's What We're Watching During Quarantine

"I've had for years box. Dvd set that celebrates the Chicago Bulls six championships in the nineteen nineties. The title is NBA Dynasty Series Chicago Bulls Real quick takeaways couple takeaways Scottie. Pippen totally underrated. I I mean. I know he's considered a legend and one of the top fifty basketball players all time. But but he's even better than that as far as the goat discussion. Greatest of all time between Jordan and Lebron James. All right I conceded. I think it was a year or so ago that Lebron has probably taken that title. I'm more than willing to be argued that I'm more than willing to be argued wrong as a Chicagoan but one thing is for sure after going through some of these. Dvd's Jordan is so much more fun to watch. I mean he just. He spent so much time doing beautiful things. High up in the air way above Lebron's had would have been so That's just a blast to watch now. You can't this is kind of a sneaky. Pick you can't stream this. Dvd set so. I'll take this occasion as an excuse to mentioned that. Espn's ten part Michael Jordan Doc. The last eight they move that up it was gonNA come out on June nineteenth. Yup the release date is April nineteenth. So obviously I can't wait for that listeners. I can maybe loan you my bulls box set because it isn't streaming but otherwise just look for the last dance this weekend on ESPN. I will be watching it. Yeah I have not seen the set that you are watching but I cannot wait for Sunday night. When the ten part doc starts it's been this mythical thing that's been rumored to be in production or potentially production for some time new house coming out and ESPN wisely bumping that up. I think it's something that a lot of people just like us are going to be watching my number three these fall under the category of blind spots and in this case there is a specific hook to Josh. Though it wasn't by design all explain it's my unofficial slash official. Bruce SURTEES MARATHON. So one day. I realize I'm kind of running out of options in terms of things that are really hooking me on net flicks and I know that there are some things I should get to real cinematic blind spots that have been mentioned on the show over the years that I feel regret about but they just seem heavy. I'm not ready for it yet. I need stuff. That's under two hours. I can knock it out and I needed to be reasonably entertaining but I do still WanNa feel like I'm getting some homework done. I do still want to feel like I've crossed something off my list that I felt for some time that I needed to get to so I went over to Amazon prime. And one of the things that popped up happen to be dirty Harry the first dirty Harry movie with Clint. Eastwood Don Siegel directed and right away. I realized how stylishly shot it was and so after I watched it I looked up who the DP was and I see that. It's Bruce Surtees. I think yeah I know that name. I can't really tell you what else he's done. I don't know much about his history's legacy at all but that is a name I have heard and oh I'll just file that away okay. So what's next? Couple of days later I go back to prime one of the film's POPs up. Lennie the Bob. Fosse directed film about Lenny. Bruce and that really is one for me. I've always been ashamed because I adore. Is You know all that jazz. Fosse's film I like cabaret quite a bit as well and in the TV series Fossey Verdon some of the making of Lenny POPs up in that TV series it. Of course POPs up in all that jazz as well. A lot of cutting to scenes of the fosse alter Ego Joe Gideon cutting the movie. That would become lenny so it was kind of just been a joke for me that I've never watched this film. I decide I'm going to sit. And Watch Lenny and. I'm watching the credits. And whose name POPs up is responsible for the Black and white cinematography. It's Bruce Thirty so then decide okay. Well this is just too convenient too much of a coincidence. We're going to make this happen and I'll give you just a little bit of background on him. Is He a name? That's familiar to you at all Josh. Young familiar with the name. I don't think I would have been able to identify any of his movies though right so he got his start as a camera. Operator working with Don Siegel and especially on Siegel and Clint Eastwood Films in the late. Nineteen sixty so movies like two mules for sister Sarah and Cubans Bluff and then his first role as a cinematographer. As the director of photography was Nineteen. Seventy-one it was the beguiled so that Seagal Directing Eastwood and then play misty for me followed that where he was working with eastward again but this time Eastwood as director that was his debut he died in twenty twelve and if you look at his. Imdb the early two thousands in the nineties were not good to surtees out of maybe twenty. Titles there's not one that really stands out as essential viewing and even at the end of the eighties. The decade closed for surtees with rat boy back to the beach and licensed to drive in the eighties for him was otherwise filled with a lot of eastwood's stuff prior to that so movies like Fire Fox and tight rope and sudden impact even honky. Tonk man his heyday really was the nineteen seventies which brought me to night moves. This is an Arthur Penn. Early Bleak Neo Noir starring Gene Hackman as a former football player turned disillusioned private. I would other type of private. I is there in the seventies and it's all set within the movie business so it's reflexive to in the mode of Altman's the long goodbye and then the one I most recently watched was another Eastwood blindspot. Which is Pale writer?

"Lincoln and Lennie James, aka Rick in Morgan which leads us into today's episode with a very, very special guest. Today's guests, this is the second time on the show. I've met him a few times in person, various cons, Lennie, James. He is the iconic as we've mentioned before Morgan Jones in there, so much that I wanna say to Lenny and every time I interview him his people are so wonderful and so kind, but because he such a busy guy, there's not a lot of time, and I, I must take like eight pages of notes because there's so much I wanna ask him and I got a filter it down to ten fifteen minutes, sometimes it's, it's really tough. But I've always loved Morgan Jones, those of you that have been with me from the start know what I think of Lennie, James. No. What I think of Morgan Jones to me. Personally, there's no better character in all of cinema or all of the small screen. I just I think the world of Lenny brings to the character because I believe he's a character they could easily apply to life, and I don't think there's much difference between Lennie James and Morgan Jones, I believe they're very similar the actor and the character, they're good people. They're people that are always positive, and looking to change certainly now with Morgan, but I'm just so excited to have lemme on for the second time, he's, he's the moral compass of fear the Walking Dead. He's just such such a good person. One of the best scenes from this past season. Fear the Walking Dead season. Four I believe episode sixteen. I lose myself is when Martha who's a wonderful actor. Tiny pink ins and Tanya and Morgan have such wonderful scenes in season four and to make a long story. Short Tanya writes on the forehead of Morgan. I lose people I lose myself, there is such a wonderful scene when Lenny as Morgan is washing. It off his face off his head and he just looks into the mirror say seven to maybe twelve seconds. And that, that's it like that. Encapsulates. Why Morgan Jones is such an awesome character. He's just he's a person that like the rest of us, right? We struggle with life. We have difficulties along the way but you don't stop trying to change. You don't stop trying to become better. And I guess that's a small fraction of why I love what Lenny brings to the character, but there's so much more. I apologize for the length. Intro. But that clip that opened the show was from season. Foreign it does set up what goes on through season four in certainly what's about to happen in season. Five before I forget season, five premiers, June second nine o'clock eastern time on Sunday.

And of course, I didn't listen to 'cause I didn't told that on election day votes, don't count. And I said how can I be? What are they based on on? Why do people vote I know votes do count? But why does somebody or anybody go around saying stuff like that, especially if they're in high school? Well, frankly, one one reason is because people have a motivation to dissuade you from voting to discourage you from voting, of course, your vote counts, and too many people tell themselves. How's it going to really matter? Of course, it matters. If we if we unite and if we go to the polls, if we show up we're gonna win their more of us than there are of then that's what always gets me about these loud-mouthed protesters and activists and even dare I say the Amy's of the world who call with her here a little rant a few minutes ago here more of us than there are them.

I, I'm, I'm putting up my number three as my third favorite predator movie. What about so I put her to. I'm gonna put it right back to it, just it just ekes out over the second one predator to mostly because the action sequences and any movie were Gabe. UC dies. I kinda downgrade, you can't kill the man, Gary abusing, even then even before the movie that shows some previews and they talked about the second with the way Gary UC died had to be epic. Yeah, yeah. They were shown ended previews that was kind of like you pointed out. You've got cut in half, but we're talking. Fell down ever feel.

I was expecting it to be bad and. Shane black. I don't know a lot of his work anyway, so I was kinda kinda if you on that. I didn't see a lot of the action sequences in the previews.

Kind of didn't Dan deferred you little bit, or what did you think about some of the humor parts? There was more humor than normal in the first one had some humor into two, but it was more kind of almost dark humor, but it was. It was a little different. You know, we had key in it, so it's going to be a little humor. You got, it's like, you can't have. He's got to be the smart ass or he's got us say something funny. He can't. You can't not. It wasn't enough to make the movie bad for me, but it was close. It was borderline too much. I mean, we're starting at the yellow peaks on the humor part you you rated your third one, second one. Sorry, I got my third one. Let's the some people. And we're here with what's your name, Sir? John, just we just watched the predator. What'd you think spreading the good? I love. I mean, what did you think about the what? What did you think about the action sequences? I mean, where would you? Where would you rank this among the all the predator movies that are out there. I don't know if I can really say it's better than you know the original predator with Arnold, but in definitely ranks up there 'cause I put it, I put his second. I jumped way up to second. And any favorite part of the movies every what's your favorite part of this movie? Without giving any spoilers just, you know. The, I guess the big surprise, you know. All right. I know so many good parts. It's easy to stop. I was so surprised watching. This will be. I be honest, I thought I thought I was going to be walking out of this movie. I wasn't going to enjoy it as much as I did. So we were talking about on the way out of the theater and I was like, wow, it's way better than I thought. Yeah, I did enjoy it a lot more than I thought I was as you know, mo- most sequels tend to kind of go little downhill and this one, honestly, just about it all the way back. Did you notice they kept referencing the first two movies? I honestly, I was thinking that was expecting Arnold or Donald Donald Glover, Donald governor Daniels, Danny, Danny Glover. Sorry, Donald was Landau. I was expecting cameo from there, but never came out, but it's still pretty good. Right? Yeah, I was expecting Arnold because you know it's new predator movie, but we, we did get a beauty. We did. We did. We did play actually played the guy son keys, so.

It wasn't enough to make the movie bad for me, but it was close. It was borderline too much. I mean, we're starting at the yellow peaks on the humor part you you rated your third one, second one. Sorry, I got my third one. Let's the some people. And we're here with what's your name, Sir? John, just we just watched the predator. What'd you think spreading the good? I love. I mean, what did you think about the what? What did you think about the action sequences? I mean, where would you? Where would you rank this among the all the predator movies that are out there. I don't know if I can really say it's better than you know the original predator with Arnold, but in definitely ranks up there 'cause I put it, I put his second. I jumped way up to second. And any favorite part of the movies every what's your favorite part of this movie? Without giving any spoilers just, you know. The, I guess the big surprise, you know. All right. I know so many good parts. It's easy to stop. I was so surprised watching. This will be. I be honest, I thought I thought I was going to be walking out of this movie. I wasn't going to enjoy it as much as I did. So we were talking about on the way out of the theater and I was like, wow, it's way better than I thought. Yeah, I did enjoy it a lot more than I thought I was as you know, mo- most sequels tend to kind of go little downhill and this one, honestly, just about it all the way back. Did you notice they kept referencing the first two movies? I honestly, I was thinking that was expecting Arnold or Donald Donald Glover, Donald governor Daniels, Danny, Danny Glover. Sorry, Donald was Landau. I was expecting cameo from there, but never came out, but it's still pretty good. Right? Yeah, I was expecting Arnold because you know it's new predator movie, but we, we did get a beauty. We did. We did. We did play actually played the guy son keys, so. So you gave it thumbs up liked it to them. Thanks man. Right. Thank you.

"All of a sudden there's this big bang noise and i start crying i think the cops are shooting at us it was a balloon someone had popped the balloon we were safe but when the door opened there with the cops and they took my dad away and it was absolutely terrifying for me my mom knew what to do because she had been there when lenny and my dad had been arrested in nineteen sixty one and you know she knew to go get a civil rights attorney and so i spent the weekend with the promoters family and my mom spent the weekend getting my dad jail which the course i think the court threw it out i think you know it was like they gave him a small fine for like you know disturbing the peace or something like that so this is the this is the interesting thing too is that you mentioned just kind of toss it off but i want to go back to that the that famous incident where your dad got arrested with lenny bruce lenny he wasn't particularly i mean i think i'll clean up his language i think he called your dad like an idiot for being willing to get arrested get thrown into the patty wagon when he didn't have to be called it a schmuck he did that's all was okay there was an f word in there with schmuck somewhere but my mom my mom bailed them out that week weekend you know she's down the patty wagon in chicago and she was there was he wasn't doing the he was doing the fm which is interesting he was just idolizing lenny zero six one this is on my dad's career he's not even really anybody yet at this point he's completely idolizing lennie lennie had gotten him a manager at that point and had seen him do some work down at the bitter end or something like that in new york and yeah and basically how that went down was the cops.

"That's a good question i think we're supposed to assume madison's but i don't know we're maybe mel because one of these two is probably still alive right but they're not telling the story to al the whole episode what we're finding out the story from the point where alex and then what did call say i mean the whole episode is is a flashback unless madison told luciana or at least you later that oh i had this weird conversation in the parking lot and they were roasting weenies and you wouldn't believe and i didn't take a weenie because that's not the kind of person i am yeah but and then i heard the story from mel about him in ennis and what did they do they told everybody to stay and then fires got them was literal fires yeah the literal literal wildfires unless the wildfires are another stupid gang with a stupid conceding torch the ground behind them because then it's very fertile to plant on i think after the fire yeah they they roll up there like we're gonna take all your stuff or we're going to set you on fire the wildfires that's very funny just a we saw john dory talk with morgan i think would have to keep lennie james happy here and give him a scene of dialogue in this episode and for some reason morgan is invested in seeing to it that he attends knicks burial yeah and this i didn't get either because i can kind of buy i can kinda buy it that morgan cares about john dory that they're kind of invested i did like the kind of book end of at the end of the episode john dory needing to be alone and work and saying don't worry i'll watch out for him which is kind of an interesting reversal of morgan wanting to be alone and john dory saying no i'm gonna i'm gonna watch out for you i liked.

"The completely two full clearer mode or do you think that he is going to have this flirtation but then ultimately in like one final act of sacrifice he will do something that is more along the lines of the cheese makers vision of how we should live our lives mara or less along the lines of the cheesemaking i feel i feel like so if the if the idea that posed at the end of the season premier is rick talking about will my mercy prevail over my wrath and if that's kind of the mission statement of the season and if you're then good as soon that like rick crimes as mercy is going to win over his wrath because that's character growth that's development were building towards that point what's going to get him there and if this is already such a throwback season such a nostalgic season i feel like a lot of that's going to end up being tied up in morgan nino rick morgan both of them still on the show after being the to center pieces of the first episode of the entire series if this is the season of throwing back to what came before you don't get much further back than lennie james short of morale as this pretty close so i think that having some sort of story where morgan is unable to learn that lesson or fees able to like die in the process of like really clarifying that lesson and finally ending on the eastern side of things like there could be something from that.
