Why You Have to Watch Apple TV's "Blackbird"
"I didn't want to buckle and subscribe to Apple TV. I'm sick of paying $10, 8 $7, $12 for all these different streaming services. I said, the hell with Apple, I'm not doing it, but I did because I wanted to see two shows I really heard a lot about. One is a series called blackbird. With taron edgerton Ray Liotta in his last role, in which he so great in, but I have to say he looked very ill in this series. And Paul Walter Hauser, this kid, this guy Hauser, doesn't get enough credit as an actor. He plays a serial killer in a way I've yet to see be done. I mean, the choices he makes are incredible. You might have seen him play the security guard Richard Jewell, the instant hero after foiling the bomb attack on the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. He was amazing in that. But on this series, he's, I mean, this guy is otherworldly. He's one of those actors. He's very heavy. He can only play certain roles, but Jesus Christ, he's he's so good. Doesn't get enough credit. Plays a serial killer in a way I've yet to see be done. The choices he makes are incredible. This is a guy who comes from a comedic background. But he steals every scene he's in with Taron Egerton. And that's not easy because edgerton, especially in this film, is really great as well. Don't base your opinion on him for how he portrayed Elton John in Rocketman. Dump. It's night and day. And to add to all of this, this series is based on a true story about a guy who gets a ten year prison sentence for selling cocaine, but then he's offered to have his sentence greatly reduced if he can become friends with this serial killer and make him admit to him all the girls he killed and where the bodies are buried. The feds took a shot, they tried something in a bag of tricks to see if this kid was a star football player in high school could go to prison and befriend this serial killer and have him open up to him. It's great. Great. I love outside the box thinking like that. Many people thought it was a crazy idea. It was wrong, you can't do this. Fantastic.

"You don't do Saving Private Ryan. And then glorify the Normandy londons because it's not factually correct. It's not fair to those that suffer or did suffer from any of these things. And it's the same sort of like racial sort of slurs. Well, we have to sort of acknowledge it. And then we sort of grow from that, don't we? That's my sort of thing. It's like, you highlight exactly what it was like, and then say, this is why we evolve. That's why we change. Look where we are now. Look how much better we treat people of color, of people in the LGBT community. And so on, and so on. Another reason why I didn't come to this for a while, I think, is when I was a young, a lot of dickheads like these films for the wrong reasons. So there was a lot of like, you know, obviously we played, we played like GTA, for example, Vice City is my favorite Grand Theft Auto game. Starring Ray Liotta inspired by Scarface. So it's all there and my music tastes kind of haven't changed from that game. You know, it's quite influential on me that game. I played it all the time. And that kind of got me into that. And but because these kind of dickheads are like, there are lots of violence or blood and it's really really good and I'm like, I like that, but I like it within something else. Again, I'm more of a genre guy and like a real-life mob story isn't necessarily what I'm going to go for for that. I'm going to probably going to go to a horror film or something for that kind of buzz. I mean, in the 90s as well, there was a glamorization of mobsters and gangsters and, you know, all these rap buildings, rappers, living Scarface. But everybody seems all these people seem to miss the fucking point of the films. Yeah, that's the thing. That's the thing. I think it's like people watching, oh, well, fucking. People watching Fast & Furious and going, oh, that means I can just drive cars really fast now. What? No. There are laws. It's not a reason to act like a fucking not bad because they're doing it in that film. Yeah, that's it. A lot of these people are jump on something either missed the point entirely, like you said, or they just got screwed loses anyway to begin with. So whatever. But that's what I love about it though. I like that I like that it's not like, you know, I think sometimes it's nice where you have a film that kind of upsets your expectations. But also I like a film that I'm like, things are going to end badly. And I want them to, because these people are not good people. Absolutely. I enjoy those kind of films as well, where people do get the comeuppance and rightly so justifiably so. And like you said, it's all about context, isn't it? The races.

"I listened to the Frank Sinatra station, the majority of the time. Yeah, you played Sinatra in the rat pack the HBO movie in which Don Cheadle was Sammy Davis Jr.. Yeah, he was great. Yeah. Joe mantegna was Dean Martin. I knew how to play Sinatra. That's not easy. I turned it down a bunch of times. I wouldn't do it. I was first asked to play him by Tina Sinatra or Nancy, one of the Sinatra, his daughters, back when they did movie of the weeks and they were doing a movie of the week of it. And I turned it down because I just didn't want to do it at that time in my career. Then it came along and it was during this down period of for me and they asked me it was HBO, rob Cohen directed it. And he called and asked if I would play it. And I just said, no, no, no, thanks. I don't want to take the on playing somebody that's so many people knew that I just felt the judgment would be too much and I was down in my career so to take on something if it didn't work, maybe it would make things worse. And then I thus wait a second. The whole point of me doing this is to take on challenges to keep growing up as an actor. And not really caring. One of the biggest downfalls for any actor is fear of judgment and so if you start acting and you start thinking about and worrying about what other people are going to say about it, you'll never really fully commit to who it is and what it is that you're playing. So what makes people think of you when they think of Sinatra? Did you sing before? I started out. I started out. I never, ever wanted to be an actor. It came time to go to college. My dad said, go wherever you want. I applied. I got into the university of Miami. This was 1973, and at that time, basically all you needed was a pulse to get in there. I got into the university of Miami. I had no idea what it was that I wanted to do. So I just went, I was just going to take liberal arts. I got to the head of the line, and they said, because you don't know what it is, what you want to do, you're going to have to take math in history. I said, oh my gosh, there's no way. I don't even want to be in college. I'm not going to take any math in history. Right next to the line that I was in was for the drama department. I said, oh my gosh, that said, I'll be a drama major. Well, it's a typical actor's story. I'm in line now to be a drama major because I think that's the easiest way to get by this year. And there was a really pretty girl, and she said, you auditioning for the plate tonight. I said, no. And she just berated me. Oh my gosh, how could you not want to do the play? You got to do the play. It's all about doing plays. What kind of actor doesn't want to do a play? So I went and I auditioned for the play, and it was for cabaret. So then you had to sing and dance. I sing and dance. I'm a jock from New Jersey. So she helped me out. I had seen pip in my parents took me to see a Broadway show and it was pippin, and it was one song in their magic to do that I really liked. I got up there and all I can remember is the refrain. We got magic to do. I'm just doing the magic to do, and I don't know how old you are, but there used to be a group called Freddie and the dreamers. I remember, I'm telling you, there was a dance. There was a dance called the Freddy's, I started doing the Freddie as my dance because I was saying you're supposed to be singing. You're supposed to be dancing as you're singing. So I just did the refrain and I did the Freddie and I got into it. And the first year, all I did were musicals. I was in the course for my whole freshman year. But there was an acting teacher that named Robert bucket's Lowry, and he was great. They called him buckets because he used to play basketball. Me being a jock from New Jersey like because when you first get into drama class and kids who there's just different people in a lot of different ways and it wouldn't be the people that I would normally hang out with. And I didn't care what they thought because here I am thinking I'm just going to be here for one year. It doesn't matter. So for some reason I just really committed and listened to what bucket said. And thank God he was an acting teacher who was, it was kind of the stanislavski. The Russian director and acting teacher and I just listened to what he said and kind of understood and just learned and if it wasn't for buckets, I probably would have left. Well, I'm just going to savor the image of you doing the Freddie while singing a song from Pippen. It was crazy. And I've said that before and I've done that on talk shows. And you're the only person who I've ever talked to who remembers the Freddie. Yeah, it's kind of like you say your arms are at your side. You move them up parallel to the ground. And then kick your arm to the kick your leg to the left and kick your leg to the right. It's almost like a calisthenic exercise. Exactly. Silliest. It was a novelty record with a novelty dance. Yep. Totally silly. Yep. Love it. Okay. Actor Ray Liotta, speaking to Terry gross in 2016. More after a break, this is fresh air. Let's get back to Terry's 2016 interview with actor Ray Liotta, who died last week at age 67. His string of memorable film appearances included something wild, Goodfellas, and field of dreams. You started your career in a soap opera. Another world, which was one of the really, really big soaps. And we have a short clip we're going to play from that. Okay. And I confess, this is from the Internet. I haven't seen the whole episode. I can't really set it up too well. Except to say that you play Joe perini. Yep. Yeah, and you were on the show for birthing from 78 to 81. That sounds about right, yep. And you've just come back to town, you're talking to your ex brother in law about your failed marriage to this guy's sister. And you speak first. Let me ask you something. Go ahead. That's it. What she didn't want to talk about. I don't want to talk about it. I'm just wondering. Why don't you call her? I don't know how she's doing for yourself. Look, we've got an annulment, right? That means like the marriage never happened, right? Never existed. But it did exist. And you're loving each other and caring about each other existed too. What about all the craziness? You know, about me being married to an heiress, our fights over money or how to live. You know if I want to know that, I have to know all the good times too. I disagree. Look, the girl I married was named kit Farrell, right? She never existed, so everything that we did just didn't really happen. I'm not mad about it, or anything else. That's just the way I want things. That's all. Okay. So that is so, soap opera. You were married to an heiress who wasn't really an error. Well, yes. But what happened was the love of my life, I lean, died after I gave her a saint Christopher medal..

"Unheard of with making movies. But we had two because that's a lot of rehearsal or a little rehearsal. Yeah, yeah. You don't usually rehearse. Like that. It was just Lorraine bob Joe and myself and Marty. And Joe is a great storyteller, and he was telling his story that that actually happened to him at a restaurant once, and he was telling that story and Morty thought, wow, that would be a great place to put a scene like that. And, you know, I'm already just, you know, he's a genius. So during rehearsal, Joe and I just played around with it. And then we would keep working at it and shaping it. But then the whole thing was once we improv'd it and got it all down the way Morty wanted it. It was written in stone and the improv became part of the script. What our listeners can't see is that in that scene, you're not only laughing loudly, but it's like visually you are laughing. Like your mouth is like way open as you laugh. Like your whole face is shaped like a laugh. You're trying to prove this is funny. I am enjoying myself. I'm all in on this joke. And there's even a collage on YouTube of your laughter through the movie. Was that a thing for you when you were making it that you thought that this character had to just demonstrate that he thought something was funny and that he was enjoying life? Is that where you left? If I think something's funny, I think it's funny and I just let it out. I'm amused by a lot of things. I love humor. I'm constantly joking around. It blows my friend's minds that I've never been in a fight in my whole life, and I play all these kinds of characters. It might seem exaggerated, but it's not. I just, you know, some people just have some very full laughter full full of joy and have no shame or fear of letting that out. So you told us about the potato chip eating interviews on cassette that you listened to of Henry hill. Did you meet him in person in a secret location when he was in the witness protection program? No, I got a call from him after he saw the movie. Marty didn't want me to talk to him at all. He just wanted we're just going to go by the script now because he knew that maybe if I met him, he might embellish or he didn't know what was going to happen and they just wanted me to just go by the script and not to meet him. I got a phone call that he wanted to meet me at a bowling alley in the valley with his brother. And I was like oh boy, what the heck is this going to be? So I went and he was there and I met him for the first time. He had just seen the movie. And basically he says, hey, I wanted to meet you. Thanks for making me not look like a scumbag to quote him. And I'm thinking to myself, oh my gosh, did you really watch the movie? You pretty much worse come back, you ride it on your fridge. It's doing all this blow. You were beaten people up, but then I would see him for years, he had a rough life towards the end of his life. And I would see him a lot of times in Venice, and he was just, you know, out of his mind on doing something, usually pretty loaded, I would see him leaning against trees or just sleeping on the beach and I would bump into him every once in a while. Probably your most famous film is good fillers. But people who are young don't necessarily know much about anything except current films. And that's kind of the joke in an episode of Modern Family that you just guest starred on. And I want to play a clip from that. It's a really funny episode. And in this episode, the three kids from the family are, they want to treat their uncle to a special gift for his birthday. And it's kind of last minute. So the three teenage dunphy kids decide to buy a map to the stars homes in Hollywood. And take their uncle who loves Barbra Streisand to Barbra Streisand's house. So they take him there, and the uncle is played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson. They take him there. And instead of seeing Barbra Streisand in front of the house, they see you in the front yard. You as Ray Liotta. And but only the uncle recognizes you, the kids have no idea who you are. So you're trying to tell the kids who you are by listing some of your biggest films. Goodfellas. Something wild. Filled a dream. I never seen it. What are really not that old? Look, Ray Liotta is a very fine actor, and we have taken up enough of his time. Stop saying my full name, like you have to keep telling them who I am. Well. So, wait, you live with Barbra Streisand? You got the map. Yeah. She lived here for about two months, 15 years ago. You think the bastards went update these things to reflect the current movie star owners. Thank you. Come on, kids. We're very sorry to have bothered you. No, no, no, no, no, I don't want you to leave empty handed. Come on in for a selfie. Oh, all right, and I'm here. Okay. When you see my movies later, you're gonna realize that this is a special moment. Come on. Cheese. Cheese. Can you see that's an old actor stripper, perfect smile? That's really owed to guest starring on an episode of Modern Family. That's really funny. As far as what you were saying to begin with in terms of kids knowing or not knowing, I do have kids that age coming up to me mostly young boys from their fathers, the fathers pass along music and books or whatever that affected them when they were younger, you know, a lot of times you pass it on to your kid. So they pass on field of dreams to their sons that play baseball. And some of the fathers that show their young sons. I've had 13 year old kids come up to me and say, oh my gosh, you were so good and Goodfellas, and I'm thinking, oh my gosh, what kind of parents do they have? That's a little too young to see that one. I wonder if it's like a Rite of passion like an initiation thing to manhood where fathers sit down their sons and go son, you're old enough now to see Goodfellas. It's a great film. It could be, I don't know. All I could say is my career has been up and down. And I like it much better being up. And when it's up, part of that is people coming up to you and saying things. I remember when I first started, I'm an actor. I don't want that sort of thing. I just wanted to it's all about the work. And that's just a bunch of BS. You want you want people to watch what you're doing. What's the point? There's a personal site to me of challenges as an actor that I like to take on myself and I do certain things that maybe nobody else knows why I'm doing, but it's all it all has to do with to grow as an actor. I really believe that you never stop learning and you never really ever get there. Just like in life, the older you get, you don't arrive at oh, I'm sorry. I'm 60 now up on I have arrived. It's not true. It just keeps going. You're always constantly learning things if you're the type of person who stays open and current. My dad who got blessed and just passed away at 98. He was hip to everything. Because he read because he would watch TV. He wasn't he wasn't closed down about anything. And he passed that on to me or the way to talk to people. You get to have a conversation with anybody. He kind of passed that on to me. He didn't pass music on to me because I couldn't stand the ironic thing is I wanted to play Frank Sinatra and I remember my parents listening to that. I said, oh my God, who is this guy? Turn this off. Then I end up playing him. Now I can't now if he's on, you know,.

"Wandered into the cab stand for an after school job, I knew I wanted to be a part of them. It was there that I knew that I belonged. To me, and then being somebody in the neighborhood that was full of nobodies. They weren't like anybody else. I mean, they did whatever they wanted. They double parked in front of a hydrant and nobody ever gave them a ticket. In the summer when they played cards all night, nobody ever called the cops. That's my guess Ray Liotta in Goodfellas. It's just so interesting to me how low his sights were set as a kid. You want to be the guy that could park double park in front of the hydrant and you're not going to get a ticket. Yeah, well, there's a different strokes for different folks. I guess when you grow up like that, when you're growing up in New York and your father isn't making a lot of money to see people who are have a lot of money and power, that kind of shows a power that they're parking wherever they want because when you're not supposed to do that, that really influenced him a lot. So listening through the potato chips when you were listening to the tapes of Henry hill. Did you pick up a lot of slang that he used? Because expressions through the film that you assume are a part of that wise guy culture so did you pick up language kind of things that you thought were really interesting? I'm a big believer that the script is your Bible and the script and a good one tells you everything that you need to know. And I just committed to the script. I learned everything. I learned that I had so much time to learn it. And I was home in New Jersey because my mother was sick at the time. And Marty was just getting ready to launch last temptation of Christ and so the movie was pushed so I had more time. So I just listened to the tapes, but I didn't get anything in terms of slang. I just know what it's like being an east coast person, being from New Jersey, but also just the script was great. What Marty and Nicholas wrote was I just committed to that through the words that was on the page. Martin Scorsese was very close with his mother and even did a documentary about his mother. I assume he really understood what it was like for you to have a mother who was very sick. Yeah, I'm sure maybe personally he did, but I didn't really bring that to the set until I mean, to be totally honest, my mom passed away in the middle of the movie and they told me on a particular day during a particular scene that I really had to get home that night because things took a turn for the worse. And you know, I broke down, I went into my trailer, I had to get myself together because we had the ready and still do the movie and I had a scene to shoot. I grew up only 45 minutes from the city. So the cruel Joe Pesci, they came to my mom's funeral. It was really, really, wasn't special, but it was special and nice, but that's the reality of what happened.

When we left off, we were talking about Goodfellas and there's a very famous scene, the laughing scene in which you and a bunch of the small time gangsters that you hang out with, including Tommy, who's played by Joe Pesci. Your favorite restaurant bar hang out. You're at a table and the Joe Pesci character, Tommy, is telling this story, everybody's laughing at the story. You're laughing the hardest. And after the story ends, he looks at you and he says, what's so funny? So let's play part of that scene and the scene starts with you just laughing a lot at the end of his story. Do you always go with big displays? Really funny. Really funny. It's funny. You're a funny guy. You mean the way I talk? What? It's just, you know, you're just funny. It's funny, you know, the way you tell the story. But everything. Funny how? I mean, what's funny about? Tell me, you know, you got it all wrong. A whole Anthony. He's a big boy. He knows what he said. What'd you say? Funny how? What? Just. You're funny. You mean? Let me understand this 'cause I don't know, maybe it's me I'm a little maybe, but I'm funny how. I mean, funny, like I'm a clown. I amuse you. I make you laugh. I'm here to amuse you. What do you mean funny? Funny how? How am I funny? I'm not just. You know how you tell the story. What? No, no, I don't know. You said it. How do I know you said I'm funny? How the fuck am I funny? What the so funny about me? Tell me. Tell me what's funny. Get out of here. Tell me. I almost had it. Yes, that. Frankie was he shaking. I wonder about you sometimes happy. You may fold on the questioning. It's really oda and Joe Pesci in a scene from Goodfellas. So that's such a crazy scene like the Joe Pesci character is so crazy like that's an example of because you had every reason to think that he was actually threatening you because that's how crazy he is. There's a scene where he shoots the Michael imperioli character in the foot just kind of for no reason and later just kills him. So what was behind that scene? What's the difference between how that scene looked in the original script? And how it looked on screen. That was totally improv during Joe was telling us a story. We had two weeks of rehearsal, which is basically.

"A play for nothing. Leota also played a range of roles in commercial and independent films, and even played Frank Sinatra in the HBO movie the rat pack. When Terry spoke with him, he was starring in the NBC series shades of blue, opposite Jennifer Lopez. They both played corrupt New York cops. The criminals pay off the cops and in return, the cops let the dealers do their thing up to a point. Here's a scene from an episode of that show. Leota's character, lieutenant Matt Wozniak, is using a little coercion to keep one of the dealers in line. I need to remind you about our understanding role. Oh, I remember. You wanted to protect parks in schools from the drug trade. I trusted your assurance that no one else will push into that territory. This isn't about your turf. The dopes cut hot. I need to get it all off the street. You crack the skull of my only lead. I don't think you appreciating my situation. I can't look like a. You don't dispense the street justice in my precinct. And the where is he? The girlfriend never gave him up. Tough girl. Don't worry. I'll find him. No more mayhem wrong. We both want what's best for the community lieutenant. I think you know what that's going to take. Let me explain to you how this works. Because you keep your business contained. If you don't cause me any aggravation. We both know that if I burn you down too much. Some punk Phoenix would rise from your ashes. We're already starting to like him better. That's really oda on shades of blue. Ray leota, welcome to fresh air. You're going to go easy on me, right? You're going to be nice to me, right? So I think I was throwing ashes on him. You were, yeah, and then we're getting in his eyes and his nose and his mouth and he was like choking and burning and not really liking your particular form of interrogation. So how did you get the part on shades of blue? It came to me. I was looking to do a 13 episode type show that there's so many of now. And Jennifer was already said it was her piece. And I read it liked it, heard that Barry lamington was going to be directing it, who I really, really like. And I just decided to take a chance and roll the dice. I wasn't sure what was going to happen though at first I didn't know if I was getting into the J.Lo show or what it was. So it was important for me to note that it was going to be more than just sitting behind a desk and giving orders and them going out and doing it. I wanted to make sure that I was involved in it. So you said that you wanted a 13 part series, which is why you signed on. One of the reasons why you signed on to shades of blue, what do you want from a series like, why did you want one? To get better movie parts to tell you the God's honest truth, you know, I'm lucky enough to do and work in this business for years, but I wasn't getting the exact kind of parts that I wanted. Usually it wasn't about if I had the ability to do it. It was more about that I have enough oomph behind me to put butts in the seats and our eyes on the tube. So I just started seeing people's careers and the whole business changed from when I first started. There were a lot of people that were getting movies that were coming out of television. So that really was one of the main reasons that and just to have a consistent paycheck and to work to do independent movies year after year, never knowing what they're going to be. Is exhausting, frustrating. There's never much money and it. So I can understand your frustration with independent films like the independent film from just a few years ago, killing them softly. Is a terrific performance. And very few people saw the film. So it must be frustrating to put in such a good performance. And then not many people see it. But of course, when you signed up, you don't know if it's going to be a big cult film or if it's just going to disappear. And a lot of times though a movie would come along and I got to play the lead part where I wasn't the maniac, but it was a smaller type independent movie and I've always felt that part of this game is to play as many different parts as you can. So I had more opportunity in smaller budgeted movies to play the leading man to get the girl without having to choke her first. So it served a purpose in terms of acting and I never took any of the smaller independent things for I never just phoned it in. I still went all out and studied and did homework for every movie I've ever done. So I'm sure you've spoken about Goodfellas many times during your career, but bear with me while I ask you a few questions about it because I know our listeners will want to hear about it. Is that okay with you? Sure. Well, so goodfellow is of course a 1990 film. You played Henry hill and it's based on the Nicholas pileggi novel wise guy. Which Henry hill tells his whole story starting from when he's a kid and he aspires to be like the small time gangsters in the neighborhood. He ends up being their assistant and ends up being really like a part of that whole ring. And ends up in the witness protection program. So I know that you listen to tapes of Harry hill. What interested you in his voice? What were you able to pick up from? And I assume that with these FBI tapes was this being him being debriefed by the no, these were the tapes of that Nick pileggi gave me. I was writing the book of it right. So he talked to Henry for hours and once I got the film, I went and talked to Nick to just start to get, you know, start doing my homework and he said here, listen to these tapes where I listen to the tapes of Henry and I listen to him every day and that was back when everybody, everything was on cassette. So you would just put it in my mother's car and listen to Henry for hours, the problem was all he did was eat potato chips. And if you've ever listened to anybody eat potato chips for like hours as he's talking, it's an extremely annoying thing, but that's basically what I did. So that told me a lot about Henry, was he was just going to do what he wanted to do. And the biggest thing that I learned from it was just how casual they were, how casual Henry was about what happened. It was just like he was telling a story of what his kids were doing and how they played in a park, except they were talking about, you know, people getting killed or beaten. It was very, very casual though. So your voice is very important in this, because you're not only portraying the character on screen, but you're doing voice-over throughout the film.

They need to make one of those games where you play as a Java. And you like, you go into dungeons and you go into different dishes. You steal shit from people, and then you find like, and then you go back to your shop and you try and sell that shit. And it's a bit papers please as well because you're trying not to get caught and get revealed that you've actually just stolen that shit and they're trying to set it back to people. It'd be cool.

Before Henry Hill: Ray Liotta Shone in 'Something Wild'
"Well I saw a raise performance in Goodfellas. I loved it. I think that lost it now and then and more or less forgot that this guy was an actor in a movie. He's very good in that film, but Henry hill is a bit of an asshole. The real joy of Goodfellas is staying a step or two ahead of the film the whole way. We know he's going to screw up. We know it. Just a question of how and when and given a part like that, ray Leonard is going to turn in a fine performance, but there's no room for menace in Henry hill. And menace is what Rayleigh is all about. That's why, as much as I love Goodfellas, you've got to see something wild. So when people eulogize Ray Liotta, for his performance and Goodfellas, I'm not going to complain. But I'm going to be thinking about if you really want to see how totally great this guy could be, how he does that thing that only great screen villains know how to do and make you simultaneously scared shit and yet unable to stop watching the screen, then you gotta watch something wild. It'll teach you everything you need to know about just how great ray liota was.

I feel like i had the right plays last week because aaron rodgers isn't normally put up stinkers and we'd just missed the over and i didn't expect the titans to kinda lyonnaise like they did against arizona and we had the over there so i feel good about my picks and i feel good about my picks this week rich. I'm going rams on the road. Sean mcveigh eight and one against the spread weeks one into a head coach and we saw what indianapolis did last week. They did not look good at home against seattle seattle. And i expect that to continue rams big like the chiefs as well on sunday night. Football minus three and a half steam spread was running for his life but the ball on the ground. There wine is banged up baltimore. They have defensive injuries and the cheese beat them by two scores last year. Chiefs are better this year baltimore worse. I like chiefs big simple math sunday night. Football finally over here so fi tj. I know you're not going to be there. But they're are going to be so many points scored in this game. It's crazy it's a big number. But i'm going over fifty five. The over is hitting like crazy so far this nfl season. We know dax got to put up a tawny yards and points just for the cowboys. Have a chance but chargers at home against that banged up defense. That's gonna be a great game. Lot of points scored. Yeah i i like the charges in that one me too but i mean i didn't have a very good week one. Picking games and i had the giants last night. I was on jiman- well you look great until you get to the last minute. I guess yeah. Let's go to Anthony and florida here on the richeisenshow. What's up anthony. I don't rich what's going on brother. Hey i have a confession. I i also drafted kelsey. Who your son. Fantasy football team nine. All you said it to kelsey for comfort. You're doing that yet. Okay okay very good. Yeah my two boys. Adam what are you what. So what's on your mind. So i'm a. I'm washington fan at anna notre dame fan so i think of the hell through the last two games so i mean last night up and down. I think i think the team moves better with heineke than it. Does it fits. He's a good quarterback. But i think heineke gives a little bit more the Washington football things. Well we're going to see it over the next six day weeks. That's for sure and You know. I mean obviously and thanks for the call if if washington wins more than a loses you won't see fits out there your diligence keep playing this guy. What a bummer. For fits man. What a total bummer for him. Yeah bummer kinda gets his first time where he's just a man in his career. They have a good defensive good team a lot of prospects banged up week one right. It sucks well. You know it used to be everybody in our household had kelsey. I traded him last night. What yeah. I was offered dalvin cook. And there's no it's not a pr league get points for catches and you have cockpits to cow pits. I mean we'll see what happens there. That's a good move. Hey bud florida alabama here. We go right. What do you think. I think that game is not a close. You don't florida. Can't is be close to alabama and they're ranked eleventh than who the hell is going to do anything then. Let's just let them play georgia now and get it out of the way and then we'll just put them both in there right. Yeah i think so. I mean that's essentially what's going on right. I think it's time for eight teams and i. You know 'cause if not then okay what are the final four gonna be. What better way to leave the leave. Everybody here on the weekend. Then have bill belichick talking about social media. This happened to this happened today as okay. This happened today So he was asked about. He was asked a question about About plays and letting it get to you and like seeing it and things being magnified because of social media and just kind of went off somebody really suggested to bill. Bella check that matters and his world are magnified. Problems are made worse. Because there's something called twitter right specifically about fumbles off from we. I can't wait to hear this gopher first of all you know. I don't really know or care anything about social media. I don't even know what's out there is there so that's irrelevant to me But it doesn't matter We played football before there was social media and didn't matter then either so but i think anytime you have a team That we all you know rely on each other wall accountable each other and we all support each other and we all make mistakes and we can make a mistake. The beginning of the game we can make the end of the game. And sometimes that gets magnified because of the timing of it but You know there are other things that could happen at different points of the game. Would you know had just as big or maybe even a bigger effect on the game. So i have a follow up question coach but did you see how many likes i mean that. Play where mack jones had. Somebody opened and didn't throw it to that guy. Juicy how many re tweets. God play football before likes godwin von. You're your bargain. The your bra. Barking up the snapface treat.

And at one point you'd literally thought that he was serious that everybody thought that he was really being serious. Is that a true story or no. That's a true story that happened to joe. We had the luxury of having two weeks of rehearsal. Maybe joe bob. Lorraine and and martin scorsese And jokes he's a great storyteller and we'd just telling a story how we was in queens one day and you know he's said something to a guy like you know what we're thinking and the guy just turned on joe in a dime it's just so joe was kinda like back in austin. I'm just saying that you so. So what happens. He told that story and more he said you know what i like that and i know good place to put it Let let's work this out so we just started kind of we're kind of we were living back and forth but then when when they when they thought that the memorial to seem was shaped to where it would sound good and then you know that was part of the brain script that they wrote They they added in when i was all right. So they're doing all those extras like one hundred x roseburg going through the kitchen guy. Picking up a table moving right in the baltimore sun and we're in the center of the thing she says. What do you do. I says construction. Then it goes up to having young men and after all that he forgot his life he he forgot his own joke. Are you serious.

I've seen ninety million times literally. It's maybe the movie. I've seen more than any other movie. Your mind tire. Life is good fellas. So which one wait i think for you to and i like you feel like we're just talking alone. You probably millions of people listening. My mother passed away in the middle of shooting goodfellas national hanser so there was a soon that we did to finish up the day and then we were off on a friday saturday. Sunday was a burial and people coming over to to the house of mourn and the most classy thing that that was done was a of the teamsters in peci came to my house in new jersey to pay respects to my mom almost get choked up now and so it's not so much a favorite scene but when i come back but first thing is me is. The rain is coming out the yelling. Who do you think you are. Thank frankie valli. You can't just make date not show up and blah blah blah right. So it's not as a favorite seem to do but it's it's the most emotionally packed thing in the movie for me. Just based on that light fun little areas story. And i told you know your rating no no no not at all no not at all. It's it's a fast. I had no idea that that was that now. That seem will be different for me.

Thank you very much Salutes talk about the many saints of newark What can you tell us about this. I'm sure it's very secretive. I'm sure david jason's keeping everything under wraps but what can you tell everyone. Who's been waiting for something like this for some time. Ray what i can say is and i believe that the series the eight or nine years nine ten however long. I never really watched it. I would see the show every now and then then like years after they were after david for awhile to write a movie about it read it like way in and he figured something out and the movie itself is if you've never seen a stitch of The sopranos that has nothing to do with with the minnie's of north that they're both standalone. Picture you don't have to know the characters and then the the few times at characters being plagued by the actors that later be was in this series you could see like the beginning of their journey but also to at does stand alone. You don't have to oblige benepe sopranos fanta to enjoy it so But it still has. I imagine 'cause it's david jason that the characters and it's New it's new jersey. It does have the same feel to it. It's the same sort of spirit. Oh oh yeah it's raw. It's as raw as a mafia movie could be. There's there's people not doing very well sick and and other things. It's it's definitely raw. I can't wait for this. What was it like to wipe is great. Is michael gandolfini. I was about to say that. What was it like to be on the set with james's son who's playing the younger version of his character from the sopranos was. I knew james Just you know here in there Mike go. I never had a day that work the same day that i worked and there was a little overlap. I wasn't about to town like tell me what it's like to play your your town. Your father who passed away that you're the one who found him. I read when you're really really think about what that is. That's that's some heavy stuff and he did it and he's cooled and he's a good actor on on his on his own. I coudl for as far as i'm concerned for him and he was great. Everybody is in this movie but that in particular it wasn't a had not the easiest part to play. Who do you play in this ray. Your character is aldo. Hollywood dick multiple. Dante would who walk us through. That is and how you played him in this. Okay so i my son who ends up doing bad things to me Wants wants wants to have kids meets the other guy in prison and talks and talks to them and And this way it was. What was the name of the character that that michael imperial play this. Christopher christopher christopher why he would have i would have been his grandfather. Okay my son would have been his father but we become scares after a little bit and and he moves on and starts the journey of. Where did i just think the way david did. It was so smart. You didn't hit it over over people's heads he did it. The way that he felt was the best way to tell it without. You know going overboard so like like anything. It's really about the script rarely actually in this business. If yeah i so short ray. Liotta here on the shines bike to last night. No no you must turn that one off right before the end of the field. Right before the end of the game washington one and a field goal On thursday night football but they're playing the giants that they were playing the job. The giants your team right. I think your team no no what was really interesting. Since we're talking sports survey around changing the whole thing go for the game at the field of dreams field so you did see that you watch cited. I know 'cause the last time you were on the show. You had mentioned. You had never seen the field of dreams. You'd never seen the film. yeah right. So what did you think of. What what did you think of the game. Being at the field of dreams a yankee. Bits and pieces of it. I didn't realize that they cut down more corn and put a professional a professional field. There i knew what we've played on. You know even. I was hitting them into the corn. These guys love. I didn't realize they built such a big big thing. I thought it was such a cool sporting thing and the way they did it that really gave a reference to to you know sports and it looks beautiful. I looked at looked beautiful. I mean was it. Did it look that i mean and at the night sky was all sorts of colors it was. I thought sometimes at that might have been used to a movie trick. But that's literally the way it was when you shot it totally because just think about it it's nothing but corn so there's no streetlamps or any kind of lighting to shoulder billboards or cars going by right you just dark because it just out there and you know acres and acres and acres of corn. I got ray liotta. I was really blown out by me to an. They're gonna make they're going to have more games there next year. I personally think they should have every major league team up there.

Now you're on the set at some point david chase you pull him sadhana. Fraley owed is going to do this. Because i don't know if there's a guy who's never seen field of dreams and he was in it. You have to in a moment after david chase if tony soprano dead or not you have to and i can't stand this whole debate of like you though do absolutely why. Why not. You have a moment with david chase. You don't ask them that question. Tell you why wouldn't he because he already made his decision but is what's on the screen. But here's the you to decide. What wouldn't it inform you and everything that's going on right here wouldn't you. If you're an actor wanna get in the role and know what's going on years in advance. If this is a prequel. I know you could. I don't know that makes no sense. I absolutely ask him Absolutely ask him. I wonder if rey seen sopranos dude. I would bet. I i don't know because he's a guy was in field. Knocked me over with a feather when he was on the last time just a few months ago. Yeah because he was in that soderbergh film that was on. Hbo max to and which i saw was terrific and we asked field of dreams. He said he'd never seen. There was a reason though i said before. He was a correlation to a sad state that he was in his mother.

Right absolutely the rest of the wide receiver. Groom also has a rookie in it. And cadaverous tony. What if he's got justin jefferson type impact. What if he's got that sort of big playability impact and sterling shepherd it's all right and 'cause layers and right so put it all together with a defense that was beginning to gel and a head coach that clearly. He was having his selling bought last year. Never know about that. You got the eagles too. I don't mean to. Just leave them. As the hanging. Chad there but new head coach and i gotta see what they're doing i i'm i'm not saying that they have no shot in this division. It's still as the nfl but it's washington's and and and it is washington's laugh all you want the. I'm going to laugh because this is a thirty soon to be thirty nine year. Old journeyman quarterback. So what what were praising. Tom brady like we're saying like forty. No one gets to that point. So you're saying ryan fitzpatrick at almost forty is going to be able to one. Because he showed. No i mean. When has he ever done this one. Is he ever done what gone from one to week. Seventeen and one is many games. Yeah i mean. He won more games sixteen games three times twice in her career. I know that's why he's got to whatever he's doing. Calibrate it just a certain way. I don't know what that is or how you can do it if he does that. Stays healthy tauzin like maybe it's like two or three times a game. You see that window and you go. Yeah maybe not live for the next down. Live for the next down. Yeah maybe not diabetes who he is my no. I know that he's got to this point but man do they have it all set up for the and look. Let's be honest. This would be that this would be the spot that would put aaron rodgers in the super bowl. This would be the spot. Forget about denver. This is the spot. I'd put aaron rodgers in the super bowl. But there's no way the packers trade him into in in conference not a shot in the world you'd like that dino aaron rodgers with washington. Let's be honest here. You wanna talk about a veteran hand that would take this team to the super bowl and win at all. Like this is the version of tampa. And i know evans and godwin cevers. But and mclaren and samuel. What have they done. You know i you know. I know that but this is the team that i think roger's could come in and boom take it to a very deep run but there's no chance the packers trade him in conference and there's no chance the packers trade rogers before the season no chance in that. I don't believe there's any chance of that. I really don't because why would they trade him to a place except the draft choices now and they know they'll spend the entire season watching the draft choice that they acquired rogers get worse and further away down the clock because rogers is going to make them a better team. Denver last year with drew lock chose top ten this year with drew lock and teddy bridgewater. Maybe they'll choose anywhere between the cusp of top. Ten to the middle of the first round. Give him aaron rodgers c. That's part of the reason. Why the brought the packers are like yeah. We'll we'll just not pay a salary. Keep that money pocket it. We wanted to get to jordan love right around now anyway. It's probably a year earlier than we wanted. But that's the way it goes and then rodgers will see you you know we'll trade you next offseason. When will send you to a team. That we know is going to be choosing where they choose because that's set in stone. Which is i. Don't think they'll trade him before the season. But i'm kind of taking everything that we talked about at the top of this hour and taking it to the end of this hour that i do believe the washington. Football team is winning this division. Where has the best chance to win this division and it is. There's to lose because they are set up and have a veteran quarterback whose time may be now if he can somehow calibrate his game to be more sustainable than we've seen throughout his career but this is the spot that roger showed up in he could have his brady type year in two thousand twenty one. That brady hadn't twenty twenty but that is fantasy is mere fantasy that's similar to. What put that dude. In the waffle deforest buckner. Luke wilson and martin sheen. How about that for an hour. Three grab bag coming up. What's going on. What's going on to the united states Land at the top of the old land is four today. He told me more. Richard will land staffer. Tell me more about this. He's he's english. Land is what you call them. How old dicky bland z's english english. Yeah so that's why he goes richer. Orca goethe's old dick land. He old dick by. I'm not sure what he prefer. I remember call ravage used to refer to carl and i think dp used to refer to the old indians pitching coach. Dick pole as richard poll. Easter is richard pole. Yes six birdies today to books bogeyed eighteen. Which is a lot of guys are Score nicely at that all. You said to shambo eagle eagles. Eighteen out there in a featured group right now. He's still playing a he started on the back today. He's just such a big dude. He's three under today one under for the tournament on off the hill and he's lease on the green while. Tom is a beautiful play. Right there look at that all right the cutline right now projected a plus two which would leave some big names on the outside career. Those big names in the decky messy on your masters champion is five over today through eleven. He's going to have to get it going. Victor hofland tony fee now currently over dustin johnson. Four over today through ten. He is struggling as well. Phyllis four over. He does not t- off until one thirty six local time Speed is five over those one hundred today so he's going to have to get it going on the back as well. Some of these shots looked like the The open championship. I've never braced open his. I call it ever played torrey pines but but you know you see you see you know How overcast is big tied victim. But i'm beginning to see the marine layers burn off the june gloom going away discourses pointing very long. Get seventy eight hundred yards of his father's day on common awesome for us all right. So let's talk about as well in our three said. Do i defend my title of best. Ever had every okay. I've got two cents. Like i've had a pretty good year brooklyn. We could resume kept him alive. I think that's a huge okay. That's good that was british job right there. Yeah this job. That is job. One of parenting guests shop number one. Keep them alive.

"I don't think he wants to get into delorean. That being there and i think sometimes richard just personal. It just gets to the point where you just say with someone or something. I'm done with it i'm done. There's nothing. I don't wanna talk about it anymore. I don't because quite honestly wall. This was while it was happening while the breakdowns were happening. You didn't wanna talk. You made your bets. You forecast is if you forecast the future in a way that obviously turned out to be wrong in this case they thought aaron was turning down hill after the two thousand nineteen thirties. They thought that he had already crested the mountaintop and it was all downhill after that and he said many times that he threw a monkey wrench in their plans with the twenty twenty season that he had just did. He screwed up the whole timetable for them. They thought they could get another year. And then they would be able to usher in jordan love air and it would be nice and smooth and they control it and he threw in he messed it all up for him and you know a guy like that. He doesn't want anybody controlling anything. He'll tell you when he's gone. He'll tell you when it's ready to time to move on. He'll tell you when the relationship is over that's just how he's wired i. I don't have any problem with that. I mean i get it. you know. i've always said look egos. Don't bother me man. Everybody at this level at the highest levels of whatever you're doing have egos but they had a different agenda than he does. That's the problem it's agendas that the blow this kind of thing up. And i think he's going to ride this thing out he's gonna lose a month a lot of money and the packers don't have to do anything if you want to look at it from their standpoint. They don't have to do anything but get their team. Read the plus points when the season starts and then the trade deadline and then after that. It's the draft next year. Those are the those are the three key. Inflection points that aaron the staring at right now so what were what about rogers because again the the other thing the packers aren't gonna do his trade him now and allow allow rogers to improve for the team. That acquires him the draft choice that the packers will have to accept right now in trade. They're not gonna do that either. So if we waved a one and just said you know the packers decided say screw it. This is just not worth it. it's not worth. He's a complicated fellow. Let's give the complicated fellow where he wants. What team would actually provide. Rogers with the twenty twenty one lightning in a bottle that brady enjoyed. That might have also added to the agenda to this mix. I i really do think based on you know the stuff that you hear when you put you into the ground that maybe maybe denver could do this. Think of the weaponry that they have the improvements. They made an office of line. The people you know who they have running the football and then the weaponry they have on the perimeter along with a defensive minded head coach who can scheme it up and play top ten defense on a consistent basis and coach fangio and gm right. Now who clearly from all indications is very interested. What's going on with their and see in his very interested in talking at the packers. Really do want to talk. And why. why wouldn't i mean that's a. That's a type of franchise out there. That's one of those pillar type of franchises that has been a destination spot for many players for a long time. The obviously they don't have the same they don't come with the same cast as they have in the past because they haven't had the same success on the field but the denver broncos look at. That's the team that makes you sit up and go as a player. Hey this is one of those one of those franchises that demands respect. That has my respect. That i i need to really investigate in and look at here as being a place that i would want to go to. If you're a guy like aaron rodgers especially again considering what he would have to work with out there and he can make all the difference in the world with that. Young receiving coordinate their nucleus especially decide monday. Get exactly what they leave monday monday. Night football's louis riddick. You're on the rich eisen. Show ron rivera. Said today that fitzpatrick who knows he could be the start of here for For a bit he. He used the words for a while. He could be the guy here for a while. Do you think we have an opportunity with the way that team is molded on defense and the weapons that they do have that he that that You know that he could actually have a late career renaissance similar to what we're seeing elsewhere in sports. He mentioned obviously brady. And revere mentioned brady and phil and you know obviously rich gannon could be another one right jerem back. David greene with ryan. It's never about kate give you certain snapshots of greatness. And he's done that. It's the consistency and look consistency performance. As you know the difference between being a starter back the difference between being starter in a superstar hall of famer. It's can you maintain that level of performance over and over and over year after year after year ryan can do it for five six games. Which is the quintessential definition of a backup. If you would've read nfl scouting menu manual. A guy who can fill in for four or five games hold down the fort until the regular starter comes back they. You'll probably win you three or four games. Three of those four games above five hundred in the time that he needs to play. So for ron saying looking for a wild while he hasn't proven he can do that at any of the stops he's been at these career that being said i think washington's the favorite nieves easily to me and people go. You're crazy it's gotta be deck. Look it's dag and unique. And its weapons it blah blah blah blah. Look one through fifty two. I don't have any issues with the redskins roster the issue if there if you wanna call it an issue is ken ryan sustained performance. Well enough to where they're ten win. Eleven wins Football.
Steven Soderbergh's 'No Sudden Move' to Premiere at Tribeca Film Festival
"There's a new steven soderbergh movie coming out. Oh really just assumed. There's one every month now. Accurate that is fair but i reference of course there in the question out of sight still my favorite steven soderbergh movie. And there's a reason for it. Soderbergh himself said when asked about making this movie. No sudden move which is a heist movie. The last time. I shot a movie in detroit with a great script and a great cast. Things worked out. Pretty well yeah. He made a masterpiece. This one though. Unlike out of sight is a period piece it said back in nineteen fifty five and is about a group of small time criminals who are hired to steal the documents. Seems like it's simple josh. I don't know if you've heard this before it's a heist that seems like it'll be simple And then something goes off if you want to make a move proposition for you. It's never your fault. is it offensive. Do you think i was skiing. I'm sure there's going to be some interesting socio political elements to the movie being set in detroit in the mid fifty s. A time where you know. Some of the big auto plants are starting to close. You've got this growing class and racial divide. So it's gonna be a grittier piece. It is going to be more akin to something like out of sight. Or even maybe kind of the limy versus the breezy flash of something like ocean's eleven but the cast just like with ocean's eleven is also a big big reason to see this movie and i guess clooney jack fully himself danny ocean himself was originally set to star and had to back out due to the pandemic but listen to this cast even without clooney.

Truth vs Hollywood
"Welcome to truth versus Hollywood I'm David, Chen and A. Truth versus Hollywood is look at films that are based on a true story, but we don't just talk about the film. We also talk about that true story. On this podcast will touch on what really happened. How that differs from the film and why and we're not just talking, heads will hear about the true story through interviews from experts, witnesses and people who were involved in it. It's both the real facts and the real facts are l. fix. What do you think that Joanna I loved it today Ridge? Today! We're talking about Martin. Scorsese's classic film Goodfellas Goodfellas is based on the book Wiseguy. Nicholas Pathology which, in turn is based on life of Mobster Henry Hill Hill was actually alive when the film came out and was very pleased with his film based on him, and as we'll talk about later, it definitely had an effect on his life. Pathology worked with Scorsese to write the screenplay and the film was. was a complete. It nominated for six Academy Awards and won one Joe Pesci for supporting actor. It's considered one of the best gangster movies of all times. If I put it on their list of one hundred years, one hundred movies and the Library of Congress decided that it was culturally important and added it to its preservation archives all right well. Let's get to the movie itself. It stars Ray Liotta. Hill Robert Deniro as Jimmy, the Gent Conway, who's based on Jimmy the Gent? Burke Joe Pesci as Tommy devito based on Tommy desimone Paul Sorvino Paul cicero based on Paul Vario and Lorraine Bracco as Henry's wife Karen Hill. Many real life figures at this movie was based off of an apparently Henry Hill ended up getting paid five hundred eighty thousand dollars because of the use of historian, this movie, which is a lot of money to pay to a mobster who has done very horrible things you know in watching this movie again. John Robinson one of the things that. I kind of realized you know or reflected on is the fact that we've been lost you decades seen so many movies about bad men, doing bad things, and that this movie kind of one of the prototypical examples of how they can be glorified an elevated in this. Movie makes that lifestyle look really glamorous while at the same time depicting some of the negative consequence lifestyle, but at the same time it does rubbed me the wrong way that like the people who are involved often are rewarded. We also saw this Martin. Scorsese's Will Wall Street as well. Similar dynamic, there so I'm kind of curious like as you're reflecting on your overall experience of watching the movie, and now that we know little bit more about what happened with the real life characters, and we're GONNA. Talk about it during the courses podcast like. How did it strike you that? This is based off of Real Person I. Think Scar says he couldn't have picked a better release. Go subject to to glum onto here than Henry Hill because though he is gangster and he's fully involved in this gangster life, he is a the likability of this character, which is really what's Cortesi was going for I've seen interviews. We talked about the nineteen thirty two scarface, which was the first time he ever saw. Gangsters depicted as really likable. When you Henry Hill. And he does terrible things, but he's a gangster who is a little squeamish. We see this the film and it's corroborated by true story of his life. He was violent crimes, but he wasn't a a mass murderer and You know the the charisma of him. I think is really important. He wasn't one of the most vicious people in this story. And so I think you're making good point that like. If you're GONNA choose an entry way into this world. Henry Hill is probably the ideal candidate in this case so. Well, the film opens with three men driving in a car, having a seemingly normal evening. It's then revealed that there is a captive in the trunk and than shortly after him, we mmediately get Henry's voiceover with the iconic line as far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster. It's one of the most. Openings and Awesome History Joanna Robinson after nearly three decades. How effective did you find this opening? Well, it's funny. I did not see I was eight years old when fellows came out, or maybe nine so I did not see it in theaters and I didn't see it until later in life and but by then it already seats into the culture because it was so iconic. You know there's. Maniacs good feathers, pigeon parody, and like all sorts of stuff, so I'm going to wear of the beats of it, even though the first exposure to goodfellas was. Is what you're saying. Thousand percent absolutely. But you know so by the time I had seen it. I had also seen so many things that had imitated it, and this is true of like so many of our great films like by the time you get around to watching it. Maybe you seen a bunch of people. Knock it off and so you're like well. How groundbreaking? Is this
