That's the ball that we played with the football football baseball baseball. I took up golf later on played some tennis. Play twelve years of soccer You know that that's just the game. We played basketball. That was what we did during during the season. That's just what we did which the other neighbor kids did You know. I became early on up at longview texas but two and a half hours east of dallas. I came a what was then called the washington redskins fan which now called the washington football team and it was because of a few simple reasons that a four year old mine will fall in love with the team.

"So i know you're matthew mcconaughey. Hey but do i know you. I don't know. I know you. Because when i see a person i know many things that i know i need to know to interact to be with them and everything but do you know some life absolutely. You do not know so i do. Not know does not mean. You're ignorant. I do not know simply means that maybe right now. I'm seeing her. I'm always willing to look deeper and deeper and deeper but the moment i say. Oh i know what's matthew. He's a file in my mind. It's finished so i do. Not know does not mean that it's ignorance we must understand this. See however much knowledge you have even if you have a digested the libraries on this planet. Still work you know. In this cosmic space is miniscule but ignorance is boundless. So the whole system always identifies with ignorance. Because if i identify with my ignorance then whether i am awake or asleep my intelligence is always on. It never sleeps the monday. Say i know my intelligence goes to sleep. It gets lazy lazy. This is essentially determining what is the quality of your life so do not ever let your intelligence go to sleep by saying i know something. Do you know a blade of grass. I'm asking all the top scientists on the planet. Do we really know a blade of grass. Absolutely we do not know as you look deeper and deeper and deeper into it. There's more and more and more to it. The top scientists in the world. How openly saying we not only do not know we will never know all right so this is the does it mean. These people are ignorant. People know him. I'm more knowledge than most people on the planet. But they're saying this because they're look deep enough into life and if you look deep enough into life you'll naturally only see what you know is a miniscule. What you do not know is an endless possibility. So do you want to take away the boundless possibility because you know spot.

The meat computation. Means you at least validate you have an opponent Right now which is not even that. We don't even have capitated because we're not even validated. We've got fricking opponent. There's something to discuss that. There's a competition here. It's not real. Confrontation were practising right. Now you got me. I wish i lived in texas so that i cast a vote for you Or hopefully it's it's bigger than that someday. I think i as you were talking.

How Rich Eisen 'Met the Moment' in His First SportsCenter Broadcast

"My first sportscenter was in the middle of march of nineteen ninety-six. It was a saturday. Seven o'clock eastern sportscenter which they don't have that time slot anymore but at any rate it was right there early evening on a saturday during march madness. I think it was the first weekend. I had to have been the round of thirty. Two of the nineteen ninety-six march madness tournament. Larry beal was the other anchor. And i remember be nervous very nervous and i try to stay loose just like matthew dry. St louis need to stay loose. And i tried to prepare for it but the problem was is the games that i would be doing. The highlights of on this show were all happening. They're all happening all going down. I mean it's march madness. You know that you know games are nonstop the tipping off fifteen minutes field like and it feels like whenever you're watching it. That's what makes it so great. And i remember thinking to myself. How am i going to prepare for this. How can i stay loose. What am i going to do. And it was time to go down to the studio for my first ever sportscenter. And i had about twelve games of highlights in the show and add only the paperwork they give you a shot sheet to read off of in notes form knowing what shots are going to appear on the screen so you knew the information of who had the ball and what the score was and how much time is left on the clock and what have and so on and so forth so i had the paperwork and it only seen the highlight of one of the twelve that i had in the show. In other words. I would have to ad-lib eleven of the twelve highlights. I had in the show sight unseen like. Normally you would get this highlight. You'd look at it. you'd watch it. You'd go over it so you know what you might say when you say it on the aaron live tv and i remember thinking to myself walking down to the said i had two choices. That's i boil it down to two choices. Try to make it very easy for me to remain calm. And i remember thinking to myself to choices one was to suck it up and know that this was my dream moment and i had been betting on myself my entire life that i was waiting for this moment and it finally arrived albeit. Not what the attention to detail. That would have calmed my nerves or the preparation. That i wanted or ever envisioned. I would not have going down to the studio. That was choice. A choice b was to be down my leg. And i thought to myself. You know. that's choice it's Definitely not choice. Let's choose. And i don't know how the show went. I went well. I mean you know. I wasn't fired on the spot I was bouncing off the walls. But i just remember thinking to myself. I got two choices. One is to go with the flow. Go at the moment. Believe in yourself know that this moment that you've been waiting for your entire life has arrived and meet it. Meet the moment and the other choices to panic which might feel good at the time but never would work out in a million years.

Essentially that i want this pod to somebody something portable in this day and age were obviously so many lives have been turned upside down and so many people are wondering if the path that they're on the path they take and you're perfect for this man again. Your book green lights as you said is a love letter to life and it's about turning red lights in yellow lights into green lights and just about origin stories. And you're just a perfect person to ask the general sense about just getting started and how you got started. What doubts did you have when you were first. Starting out yourself. At many doubts you said something really cool out of an earth. Put this way you want to give people something portable meaning. What retake with us when we're out of class. What can we take with us when we're outside of our church or whatever that is when we're not in our comfort zone that we can have in our hip pocket in our souls and go yet. I can use this approach in life. And it'll help me navigate and gets a good way to put portable doubts for me man. I've calibrated recalibrated thousands of times. I've had grand plans.

Seems like that's sort of the art of life making plans and then knowing that change is gonna come anyway. The unknown in doubts of just knowing the answer. That's something that i think that we all have. We want to know the answer. Can you make tangible. Can you tell me what. I'm going to take this risk. Can you tell me. I wanna see my reward can okay. Now i see it clearly now know well reward. Don't really like that. Even if we have an idea of what they are. We're going into something. They aren't what we thought they were when we get there anyway so i think the doubt is in what is it. What is an accomplishment. Gonna be there's even unknowns when we're very secure about where we're going and that's not all the time so you can have more doubts if you're only seeking a result or less dashiell lean into the comfort of doubting going. Hey i'm not about the result. I'm going to enjoy the process of doing what i need to do. And how. I look up one day.

Granted I'm not going to be the asshole. It's like oh, well, if it's not public that means people don't donate not true at all. Who knows who else donated from that organization, but you think it would have leaked somehow right? I'm not going to assume nobody donated but it just doesn't look good publicly when there's other organizations locally on the sports side that are donating. Anyway, my point with that is what the fuck more does Dak Prescott home to do. I'm starting to get really fucking mad.

It took them a while to sell the advertising but they got it done but from everything. I've read this year. More companies are going to be using celebrities than ever before make sense. Celebrities are pretty easy. You got to pay a little bit more. I guess to get the bang for the buck. But everybody's gonna talk about the ads with celebrities in them now. I haven't seen any ads so far. That just heard about some of the ads. I know we'll farrell is going to be one. I've seen a teaser from gm. Mike myers and dana.

Using Celebrities (MM #3609)

"The with kevin mason mentioned last week. I was a little disappointed to hear that super bowl ads. This year won't include coca cola pepsi. Budweiser still a lot of advertisers. It took them a while to sell the advertising but they got it done but from everything. I've read this year. More companies are going to be using celebrities than ever before make sense. Celebrities are pretty easy. You got to pay a little bit more. I guess to get the bang for the buck. But everybody's gonna talk about the ads with celebrities in them now. I haven't seen any ads so far. That just heard about some of the ads. I know we'll farrell is going to be one. I've seen a teaser from gm. Mike myers and dana. Carvey look back to wayne's world and guess parody commercial ashton kutcher and his wife mila kunis are in a commercial for cheetos. I think we've shaggy the singer. Michael jordan matthew mcconaughey. They're gonna be in commercials to as are of course sports stars terry bradshaw peyton manning ally manning marshawn lynch all going to be in commercials together. So obviously we're gonna see a lot of celebrities this year. A lot of big stars in the long run because of this pandemic. You wanna make sure you're talked about and that isn't always so easy.

I talked to many many times and obviously they never brought up. How weird got i mean. I'm sure that never came up. No no chose not to work. I'm always like hey. How are you good to see da da. October keys ricky. It never came up. They didn't bring up. But i didn't i didn't i didn't rub it in. Well see now. What about because. There's a lot of personal stuff. I don't know why to keep holding up. It's we're not recording this and you've already seen the book I there's so much personal stuff in there how do you feel about. I mean the dooley's. I'm insurance not as the stakes aren't as high. But somebody like your mom reading the stuff in that and some family members reading that stuff have have you gotten any matthew. What the fuck. Now i mean look these stories my family we all know these and we we tell them and we. We laughed. really hard at our warts. My mom really honest. We're you know. My mom. I tell stories added in this about violent fights with my mom and dad about halfway me and brothers. Were punished that some people go. That's abusive and i'm like no no no it wasn't that is now how i saw it. Or how it was received. Now i went to my mom and she said know before i put the book guy said look. I told these stories true. And she true and i'm going to share and she read it. She was like oh absolutely all. That's absolutely true. And then some she has no wish she did say i do. Wish would have included more stories of how was almost all the time is win manufacture will get along and i go and it made me think because i was like. So why do i tell these. Sometimes violent stories. That are the stories i to tell to show you how much we loved each other. Yeah believe the answer is because that's the time with the love that we have tested. The most right never failed right. We really high. It wasn't by redrawn blood. John oh shit. This is where it's going to blow up. This is where this is where the story in life turns into a horror story which it never did. But it's also matthew probably the stuff that really stuck with i mean that's that's the stuff that That forms you. I guess yeah i mean i you know i've been asked lot had it. What do you mean at four years old when you're seeing your mom and dad fight. And she's pulled a knife on him. How did that not. I don't know yeah brands. You in a poor in a bad way or an unhealthy way and i don't know the answer except you know that story ends up with them making love on the kitchen floor right so would have been different in a love was always gonna win. I don't i don't i i never. We had a thing in our household. I love you. Just don't like right now. Well i tell a lot of the stories when we didn't like each other. The love was never questioned. So i don't know why that young age that was never in question for me. There's also something so pry found interesting about because it's such a different childhood to say. It's such an understatement. But but the the love was palpable. There was something very obvious about that but also there was something primal about the way. Those led the way those lessons were taught to you especially with your dad. You know. yeah which it there's fa fascinating there's in some animalistic about it and that's very beautiful and and that's where my you know. That's also where my dad came from. That's how he learned. Those rights of passage almost goes back. It's very odd tribal. It's very africa was like you know it's it's Young man's rights of passage. You're going to have to go out and proven you're gonna it's gonna have to. Can you face the monster and look them in the eye. The and can you. Can you bring the kill home so to speak. I mean right so it wasn't literally that but it was. It was close. Look i'll say this. For instance. When i told my dad. Tell the story about the barbara where i took out the bouncer which was a big rite of passage for me and my father's eyes off my son risk the consequences of of of getting in a fight with somebody who was bigger than him that had put their hands on me There's something emma father was like he didn't say this but i'm sure it's true Okay now he's more prepared to go out into the world and say i'm gonna. I'm gonna risk myself whether he always physical thing he was. A physical guy was football player. He grew up. He was disciplined in his own rites of passage. But i'll also say this..

"And Senator Rob Portman will not seek reelection in 2022, the Republican how Republican put out a statement saying that it's gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock. At this point, you know, it's interesting. He came out to say that yesterday on the well, I mean, just hours before the Democrats sent the impeachment case against former President Trump to the Senate. With the start of that historic trial, which by the way that set now for February 8th because over the weekend, Matthew McConaughey, who lately and I I can see how the rumors they're starting where Matthew, who lives in Austin. And I don't know if he's a registered Democrat or independent or Republican. But he's been very vocal in the past few months about Democrats, Republicans and, you know, come on. All right, all right. We all just got to get along here. But he had this to say over the weekend to a show in the UK just about the problems with the weight left. In the way, right? You need Liberals. What I don't think we need is the ill liberals. And what I don't think that some liberals see is that they're often being cannibalized by the ill liberals. Now, you know they're extremes on both sides that I think are unfair that I don't think of the right place to be. The extreme left in the extreme right, completely illegitimate eyes, the other side, Um, the liberal and the conservative side, which we need in certain places. They two extremes, illegitimate eyes, those those two sides or they exaggerate that that side's stance into an irrational state that that makes no sense. And that's not fair when neither side does that. Um, you know, we're not. Oh, well, the water where the water lines gonna land on this freedom of speech and what we allow and what we don't and where this canceled culture goes, where that water line lands is a very interesting place that we're engaged in right now is a society of trying to figure out because we haven't found the

Like we're always in this quest for happiness and it's about stuff and things wanting to add things to distract us right in. I'm all about distraction especially in the throes of a craving or high anxiety or when. You're super upset. I think in those moments one of the best things you can do is kind of distract yourself until some of that emotion comes down in then. You can figure out really how to cope with it and often times. That quest for happiness is more about removing things. That aren't serving us. And that's really what i want to get into in some changes that i did in twenty twenty. That made a big difference for me and it just food for thought some things that you can think about again especially going into this new year this fresh new perspective the next version of you that you're going to build the next level of your sobriety your life your relationships. I want you to think about some of the things that you can take out of your life. That just don't serve you.

Getting Relative With the Inevitable and Catching Greenlights with Matthew McConaughey

"Matthew mcconnahey on dose of leadership. I can't believe it what was show my friend good to be here. It's a great topic to talk about will never go out of style talking about this job. Yeah no can. I say i love the book i read it and i listened to it to different experiences and i'm glad i did both because the visual aspect of the book was i listened to it i because it is easier for me being on a plane and stuff but then i read it and i. It's like i got two different experiences. I got a lot out of it doing both ways. I he said that to you about a few bums. Somebody said to me. When i read it they they read it it with their own voice. Yeah in the hear me read it audio only for short hair my voice and hey heard laughed in places that they didn't laugh when they read it herbie point out certain things that maybe they'd skipped over and toast the reading same book but getting two different things out of it each. Yeah no it was just great. And i think it was. I don't know it was a great book. For the time i think for the year i mean it was profound a lot of ways in the sense and i thought well god this would be a good topic because there's so many areas of leadership and i don't know if you've ever looked at it that way but at least it's a big umbrella a lot of stuff you talk about in here and this show is about like how to kind of navigate through life and that's what the book is rate and i love the concept of the green lights but to me the i talk a lot about on the show and i used to come from the marine corps. The biggest thing i learned is like how to be a composed forcing a chaotic situation. And that's what your book was to me was like you seem to embrace this idea. That look man. It's never smooth. It's never a straight line it's jagged it's up and down and those red lights and the yellow lights that we come across. There's a that's the stuff that kind of shapes us and there's green light assets. I think is the term that you used that are inside of those things that resonates with me because i think life is about. You can lead a significant life if you can learn how to be composed force in a chaotic situation. And that's what i got out of your book. How does that resonate with you. I say i love that term to please remind me that i got to write it down now but i really like composed force in chaotic situation. Yeah i mean you know. I don't care what your i don't think it matters what someone's beliefs are whether they're a believer in another life after this or if they're sort of hey life's all about cruelty. We're just dying every day. That's all that's all fine or if you're an eternal optimist you know every day great. We've got another son rose for me. That wasn't guaranteed ever way. Jeter ever end of the spectrum anyone's from either way the more proactive the more constructive. The more the more healthy more fun choice is to go well by believe in that you know we're just dying off every day in the world's cruel and it sucks to be here that's fine shake hands that so now we might as well do it with pleasure in it with dignity. Is that bring that that that that line later in the book right. Say in those times where we feel like. It's all for nothing more. The math of the world adds up to say. Oh tall for nothing. What it's in those moments that are part and parcel with only. It's all for everything right. The alternative you know. And i'm wishing hallmark card delusion i'm trying to. I'm not a fan of that stuff. I'm not a pep rally. Cheerleader guy. i'm trying to find practical stuff. I've tried to find it my own life and of it is to pull another line for the book. If you do have an island point of view okay well then purchased this once. you know. it's a near dawn right. So if you're going to say oh. It sucks within go. Well okay gonna make the best of it however so i think that's what you what you're loading to in certain times where my red and yellow lights in the l. All having when. I bring up something as simple as sense of humor being default emotion on not within the contradictions that that i'm not i'm not i'm using bring that up. Say that doesn't deny the crisis now. It's just another tool to help you deal with it. It's more survival. And some of these things maybe thrive but at least can use to help better survive. And how little more satisfaction getting through this rodeo. We're all in right. you know. it's not. It's not even fair to say it's a a a typical book that i mean it does. It does have things that you can apply to your life. But it's not a how to book is a memoir sweat slash. These are the things that worked for me. Take it if you like it. If not i don't i don't you know this is what this is. What my life is did. You is that i guess. What was the intent when you set out to right. It wasn't to help people like myself or help other people or was it just to kinda get your authentic self out. There was a deleted legacy for your kids. it was all the above. What was it. I mean i mean somewhat all the above started off i thought it was gonna be before i opened up that big trust of journals to see what i had in them ones. I've been keeping for the last thirty six years i i. I had an idea of what i thought i was gonna find. You and i thought it would be very academic. I thought it was going to be very self help. I thought it was going to be sort of. If then if then and i like some of that but again back can start to lean into that hallmark or world and self has got. You know we've all i've got. I've got a decent relationship with with with self help. But i like i like my sort of wisdom to have little more context and allow me the individual to have the power to go rhino acting. Apply this in a different way and my position and this is i can apply in a particular way that no one else can. We each can do that.

I'm going to the sat dome. Armand, me get my own key to the kitchen could stakes three o'clock in the morning? Did you enjoy living that big life during that run? When really boy it was one movie after another that were hits and everybody knew you and your co stars also big stars as well. Did you like that run up until a point because in the book you say, I knew it sort of had to end somewhere. I did I thoroughly. Enjoyed it. When I gave myself licensed to enjoy it. I went ahead and said, okay, let's. Let's see how much freedom you can give yourself in go. Let's just let's the lean into. Your Life that that that you've that you've got McConnell Haney the access influence and fame let's lean into just let's let's. Let's go those play that character. For a while and I did and I quite enjoyed it but I always knew even going into it that it was going to be a stop. Not Stay I mean I knew I didn't know how long I was like no, don't go ahead. Don't don't don't. You know pull out of this too early leaning to enjoy it and you'll know when it's time to get out and that time did come where I needed more resistance I needed more I was I was I'd had enough Saturdays row. In my life and onscreen and I needed some Monday morning accountability responsibility in I needed some ascension and. Building needs resistance to create a new structure in my life, and then I think around two, thousand eight or so you sort of put on the brakes on things for almost two years and. Twenty months you say, all right. I'm going to recalibrate. What were you doing in those twenty months? Had you know which direction to head after that? Well. I knew I wanted to go rolls I wanted to do but those rules are not coming my way. So they were not an option so because I couldn't do what I wanted to do I stop doing what I was doing. South Romantic, Comedy Stop the action. Adventures. moved out of the Chateau, etc.. I'd met my now wife Camilla that time was falling love with her and we had. Created our first child. So.

"Everyone had a biography of which happens to any person who gets famous. Somebody has an innate. Perception, somehow of that person before they come up and they lean right into the story, they come right into the cliff notes you know without the introduction. I noticed I was not meeting strangers anymore I noticed that for me personally, my soul. Needed some missed its anonymity. here all of a sudden last Friday before time to kill cames out came out there were one hundred scripts done but I couldn't do any of them and now two days later Monday. Their offer me all hundred of those scripts and I'm going what two days ago I would have done any of those. Now you're telling me I, can do all of those I need some discernment I need to go figure out what what what matters here matters to me so. I put on backpack and got outta Dodge and went to places where people did not know my name where I was stuck with no one. But me and my internal dialogue to try and get my soul and feet on the ground and understand my head and my heart communicating clearly again to say what is it? I want what I want WanNa do what is it I don't want I write about this a lot in the book. You know it's very hard to know what we want and who we are. And that's okay. By process of elimination getting rid of the things you don't want and who you are not you will give you a better chance to end up being who you are and getting what you want. So that was the beginning of that process after I became famous and and then went on from there. That's every day since then for you is that feel like a lifetime ago when people did not know you on the street. All, I kind of. kind of I'm kind of at ease with it. Now, I still I'm able to now And much more quick now to meet someone in already understand is out they've already got a bye on you but I know how to get down. Underneath that with them. So we can have a real conversation. They can be completely honest with me as the guy, they just met Matthew, not the actor but the man math McConnell. So I've learned the tools for how to get under that in a graceful way hopefully, and sometimes it takes longer with certain people sometimes, it can take you know I don't have the effort. The where I write about in the book, we less impressed more involved sometimes, people will be impressed with my fame or something I'm not. They're not involved in the conversation with right there holding reverence for my place in society a someone famous that they're not really being themselves for behaviors. I've learned tools to get them to go. Okay. got that now. Hey, come here. And ask in certain question about the day. Do you have children or something like that and all of a sudden then baselines and I can have an involve conversation ONS conversational somebody but I've learned how to do that over the years. Hey guys thanks for listening to the Sunday. Sit Down podcast stick around to hear more from Matthew mcconaughey right after the break. We get support from care of as the seasons change.

"Week with Oscar winner Matthew mcconaughey who does not love McConnell. Hey. We I fell in love with a guy back in nineteen ninety three when he played Woodson in the movie dazed and confused remember he was the twenty something guy who is still hanging out with the high school kids in town kind of a local legend who uttered the phrase alright. Alright. Alright. Did you know? Those three words were the first line ever delivered by Matthew mcconaughey in a movie it was his first acting job and that was his first line from there. He went on three years later to star in a time to kill opposite Sandra Bullock. That's when he really became a movie star then he went through the two thousands as this. Romantic comedy guy doing movies with Kate, Hudson, and J. Lo, and at long list of romantic comedies and then two thousand eight just goes dark. He was offered at one point. You'll hear talk about it fourteen and a half million dollars to do another. Comedy and he said, no, that's how serious he was about kind of things in a new direction in his career. So he goes away for twenty months almost two years. Comes back and just takes dramatic roles. Culminating in Dallas Buyers Club for which he won the Oscar. For Best Actor, of course, he did true detective which an amazing Hbo Series and so much more since then and now he's out with this book called Green Lights, it is the story of his life. He went back and looked at the diaries he has kept for thirty five or thirty six years since he was fourteen years old, he's fifty now. But last year he took all those diaries went to a cabin with no electricity in the middle of nowhere and read through them in realized there's some good stories in here I should put them in a book because I think a lot of people can relate to them. Most of US met Matthew, mcconaughey as a movie star but there's a lot of life for him before he got into the business Amazing. Truly like eye-popping some of them shocking stories in the book about his childhood and growing up in South West Texas you day Texas including some scenes in his home of violence between his parents violence toward him and we have kind of a a deep conversation about what he took away from that what it means to him. So so much to talk about with Matthew mcconaughey around his new book called Green Lights Right now on the Sunday, sit down podcast. Matthew thanks for doing this man. Appreciate it.

"I'm Shawn fantasy editor in chief of the ringer. And this is the big picture conversation show about some of our most fascinating movie stars. I am joined as I have been recently on these career arc episodes by pair of thoughtful deep and possibly very high career. Archaeologists Amanda Dobbins and rob her villa. Hello, guys, high San all, right? All right. All right. Thank you. Rob someone had to do thirty seconds in case, you couldn't tell from Rob's beautiful impersonation. This is an episode about the the life in the career and the and the essence of Matthew mcconaughey, who is of course, starring in a new movie harmony, Curran's new movie the beach bum which is out in theaters right now, and we're gonna be talking about that movie quite a bit. But before we do that we're going to do what we always do on the show. This is only the second time we've done it. We're going to analyze different stages of an actor or actress or directors career, and we're gonna talk about the breakthrough moment and the personal pinnacle for each of the three of us. And then we'll talk about the big movie that's out right now. So guys before we get started. I wanna talk. A little bit about just your personal connection to Matthew mcconaughey who has been in our lives for a long time perhaps longer than I even realized when I was looking at this guy's career. Amanda, what is your your general relationship to Makaay? Well, like his career goes in phases. And we're gonna talk a lot about I actually don't know how much we'll talk about the two thousands. But you talk about it, Matthew mccown. Hey starred he was a rom com. Idle in the two thousands, and that's a very interesting time in romantic comedies and say not so interesting workwise, but in terms of career arc very interesting time in Matthew mcconnahey career. And that's kind of how I was introduced to him or how he became a part of my life about that. And you about Matthew mcconaughey, but I was very conversant in those romantic comedies. And then I was a culture blogger to during the Kanazawa. So. It's in terms of watching an actor or a public figure reinvent themselves and have a kind of public narrative that we're all participating in real time. He's a really prime example for me. I can't really think of him without thinking of just this not even transformation, but a return to self that he experienced would you say the time as a flat circle, Amanda. Oh my God. Yeah. I would have to at this point. 'cause you all do so often, rob. What about you? I suspect that your your true relationship with with Matt Mack, which is something no in calls him. But I'm gonna call him that occasionally Amish. Micheli? What's your relationship to McConnell, 'cause I I assume it started before Amandus? Yeah. I mean, it started very simply as like I just want to listen to this person say word rest of my life. I mean, I do think he has this my favorite voice like in Hollywood, and possibly, you know, the larger celebrity sphere. I mean, I'm pretty sure my introduction him like most people my age, our age was dazed and confused and just every word that came out of his mouth just sounded beautiful for lack of any other way to put it I think following his career subsequently. I I wanted to ask you guys like the McConnell San's that term sort of implies like a really deep valley in the middle of his career. Like, Matthew mcconnahey is sort of a guy when I started following and writing about entertainment like following the arc of an actor or a celebrity in the low points in the high points like I was always kind of confused by the McConnell, and ideas, like what was he recovering from like, he doesn't really have. A Geely in that sense. Like, I don't think there's one moment. That's like a terrible moment. And it's like literally ninety seconds ago. I remembered that he was once a rested for playing Bongos today. Kid. That's the thing that happened. Right. What a like that will that wasn't the low point. But like, I was I was he's one of the first actors who I sort of perceived as having this media driven sort of rise and fall arc to him. And I could never quite figure out what caused the fall. I guess I bet you have a lot of thoughts say rob have you seen goes girlfriend pass? And or I haven't walls gold, and or forces of nature, and at you know, the back half from two thousand five to two thousand nine he's in a ladder leading man roles that are tough, and they're not gonna romantic comedies, and those are not. In any way, the essence of McConnell as we have come to understand him. And it's an interesting arc- because he basically twenty years later returns to himself. It's an it's an arc that I know flat, circle, blah, blah, blah. I get it. But it really is the Mikan science. I think more means that he. Finds his essence again as opposed to coming from some valley. It's like a a a new expression or somebody say, the, original expression. Will I think it's also about what we deem to be quality versus an meaningful artistic choices versus things that are pop or frivolous. I think particularly in that period that you're talking about Amanda, you basically two thousand five two thousand four Saharan to for the money things kinda start to go a little south there. And he's just making a lot of stuff that is moderately successful. But just not very good. And you know, when he comes back with the Lincoln lawyer and Bernie in killer Joe, and we'll talk about that period seems to turn the ship, and he starts working with filmmakers that he'd worked within the past or people who seem interesting in on the forefront of something. And so I think the McConnell San's, rob, I guess for lack of a better phrases just meant he started doing good stuff again. And I would argue towards the end of this podcast. We're actually in a phase where with the exception of the movie we're going to be talking about at the end. He's actually made. More bad stuff in the last five years than good stuff, and maybe more bad stuff than he did in that fallow, period. But nevertheless, let's go back to the very beginning. Rob you wanted to talk about about days as as sort of breakthrough. So what is it about David Waterson that that enraptured you? I mean, I feel first of all this is there is no need to overanalyze him that movie like this moment. Like he's in days and confused, really ten minutes. Maybe. You know, like just jump right? Like his delivery of the line. I get older they stay the same age. It's like this perfect mixture of like, casual and formal that's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older they stay same age. He knows the character knows how good align. It is the actor knows how good align. It is. Like, you take a little step forward. Like in that exact moment. Like, I realized that for the first time that he's wearing like salmon colored pants. Ted Nugent t-shirt. It's just this this beautiful transcendent moment that doesn't need to be belabored. But let's does this guy as a star like just right in that moment. And I the other days that I love rewatching he pulls up alongside another car like a burger joint and the two guys in the other car go off Christ immediately like they can't stand him. But the the driver of the other car a young red headed lady who I believe is Marissa Rabin easy is smitten with him. No, I got my own car. Thank listen to stick the car with now get in with us. But that's all right worry about that later. I will see their. You tell them about the new fiesta tap inning at the moon tower. There's going to be fresh kegs. And it's just I would just I would just follow this man, anywhere. And I watching it again like I feel there's a version of dazed and confused like the studio like focus groups like diluted belabored version of the movie that feels compelled to have an actual plot. And like a moral would make his character not like the villain, but like the cautionary tale at the worst case scenario like you don't wanna end up like this guy, actually like dazed is one of the things that makes it great is like it's a high school movie where at least some of the actors look like they could conceivably be in high school. And so it makes it hard to tell like how much older he's supposed to be than the rest of the people. But I I love the way that like his job is working for the city. Like he says that several times doesn't elaborate at all. But like it's kind of he's he's he's kind of lame like part of what makes Ben Affleck's CARA. Actor lame is that he shouldn't be there anymore. Like, he I think he like flunked a he got held back a few grades or something like he shouldn't be hanging out with these people anymore, and it should theoretically be the same for him. But it's not. But even at the end like when they're on a football field, and he gives the speech about like, it's about living L I V. I N like you can take that as like really profound. You can take that as kind of pathetic. Like, there's a version of the movie where like the plot is like the football player trying to decide whether to sign like the promise not to take drugs or whatever. Like that moment. Could be the football player realizing I don't actually want to end up like this person, you know. And if I agreed not fuck up like even twenty percent of the time, and I won't end up like this person. But like the actual movie can't bear to do that to McConnell. Hey, and like McConnell as performance is too. Good to even make you feel like even a little bit pathetic. Like, it's just it's a very fine line and just uncomplicated -ly beautiful thing. But like when you think about it, it's it's just. It's perfect. He's unquestionably one of our most beautiful statutory, rapists. He's just it's amazing. It's amazing how willing we are to forget that that is literally the point of that character is that he is a predator. And it's like, oh what a charming predator? You know, that is really his power like this is the first significant role that he had and it's it's one of his best roles. It's it's like communicates. A lot about the kind of actor that he is even though he's as you said, rob onscreen for so so little Amanda, what did you think of days? Yeah. I agree with you. It's just kind of an instant stardom. I was on a podcast recently talking about Pretty Woman and the power of that movie and a lot of ways it's just you're watching. Julia Roberts become a star in real time. And it's so rare to see someone in one of their first movies just like before we formed. It's kind of like, okay. You know, you are and sodas the director, and you know, how to be on screen, and like I understand the qualities that you're going. Bring to your other roles like you have just you've got star quality from the gecko. And like he clearly does like dazed and confused. It's kind of his first movie or his first big movie. But also definitely the statement for the rest of his career, or at least the successful parts of his career and people don't often figure it out that early. It's true. It's notable though that it takes a few years for him to find real stardom. You know, even though I think anybody who saw it is inconvenient came out. And it was not a huge box office hit. There's something going on with that guy who is that guy. And then he appears in significant roles, but not necessarily the lead role in angels in the outfield, which I'm sure we all know and love, Bobby Wagner. Our producer baseball fan. I'm certain he's seen it Texas chainsaw massacre of the next generation, which quite bad. He has a small role in boys on the side in which is very charming and his smaller but crucial role in Lone Star, which we've talked about on this podcast before. And then comes a time to kill now. If you're listening to the show, you probably know how much I like the John Grisham adaptations of the nineteen nineties. This was a this was a sub genre that Hollywood thrived on over the years. End of the pelican brief is one of your favorites. Pelican brief the firm is one of my favorites. I'm a big fan of the client. Rob you, and I were having a grand old time recounting some of the ridiculousness of time to kill which I had forgotten and yet still feel entertained in compelled by it's actually quite gruesome story. And if you think Waterson is a sleazebag the stuff that happens in time to kill us awful. It's it's it's essentially a courtroom drama about a man who is on trial play by Samuel Jackson and his lawyer as Matthew mcconaughey, and Matthew mcconaughey is playing essentially modern day Atticus Finch person who is like a he starts the movie out of sort of a wastrel like a slick drunk southern courtroom operator. And by the end of the movie, he transforms into this morally righteous profound. Emotionally resonant figure and this movie is really weird. I cannot believe this movie exists, and so intense, and so upsetting and also features a million famous people, Sandra Bullock is essentially McConnell as right hand woman, who's helping him with the case who understands the law significantly better than mccown as character does Samuel Jackson of courses on trial. He plays Billy Ray Cobb. Kevin Spacey is the DA who comes in from out of town and his quite evil for into Frick. Her plays. Matthew kinda his secretary Oliver Platt places legal partner, Donald Sutherland, I believe plays. His father has dropped. It's like it's not as father. But like the lawyer who gave him his start and is now a drunk sort of wasted. Right. His. Protege. His father figure who has his name is is Lucien Wilbanks sheriff some perfect Girish esque southern writing the reason that I chose this movie is his breakthrough is because it's the the first time that McConnell, hey, is in the center of the frame, the whole time the movie lives and dies by him. And because of its preposterousness, I think almost any other actor wouldn't have been able to pull it off. And of course, there's a very very famous speech at the end of this movie that we're gonna listen to right now. I wanna tell you story. Close your eyes. Tell you the story. I want you. Listen to me what you listen to yourselves. Go ahead.
