"Jesus, save your soul, starring Regina hall and Sterling K Brown. Here I really hit that many beans, baby. Shake it for the lord. Thank you for the lord. I said it. In my heart. This morning film critic total of Hollywood in total dot com was his take. Well, if you ever seen a mega church pastor and wondered why they lived so fabulously well, that's what they're really targeting here, kind of that prosperity gospel theme that we've seen with Joel Austin and maybe some others as well. So they play a power couple, their congregation has been shattered by scandal and now they want to build it back up, reintroduce themselves and get their lives back in a way that they were used to. And they hire a documentary crew to capture it all. But of course, things don't go the way they planned and there's lots of disappointments along the way. This concept is interesting. I like the faux documentary format, a cast is outstanding. Do they do everything possible with the gig here? But it feels a little bit like shooting fish in a barrel when you're making fun of these mega church pastors who are just seeking wealth and fame and oh, by the way, some faith journey. And there's nothing much beyond that. And as good as the cast is and as ripe as a subject matter, as you really need more depth, more context, and a film like this should be just flat out funnier. There's a couple of smiles here, maybe a chuckle or two. But I think when you're using this, this is hysterical launching point. You've got to bring the funny. And I don't think that hung for Jesus makes it happen. This weekend, there's something special going on to hopefully get you out to the movies if you haven't Thor: Love and Thunder, but some of the smaller titles have struggled and I think as we head into the Oscar

"Trinity childs. The First Lady of a megachurch that's been temporarily closed after a scandal involving her husband. In order to rebuild their church and retain their lavish lifestyle, Trinity must help her husband win back their 25,000 congregants starting with a planned return to the pulpit on Easter Sunday. By the number of things, get in the way of that happening, meaning, of course, that it's going to take a lot of humility and humor for the couple to find their way back to their former glory if they can. We wanted to learn more about the film, so we have called actress Regina hall. She's with me now, Regina. Welcome to all things considered. Thank you very much. Thank you for having me. You play the First Lady of a baptist megachurch. For those who don't know, that is the title for the preacher's wife. But it's also more than just a title. It is like it's a political position. One that's often about optics and public perception. I'm wondering what drew you to this character? Oh, I thought she was fascinating. She had a quiet strength about her and of course I loved the world. The backdrop of this situation with this couple. And I don't know, I thought she would be interesting because she's reserved, but she's really strong. And flawed, you know, she also has her attraction to what comes with that life. It feels like she's got the toughest job in the whole church. Yeah. Yeah, I think she does. Yeah. Well, navigating, you know, her husband who's as she describes them difficult to harness at times. She's got a tough job. Tougher than I ever thought. Never really considered all that they had to do because they're not the face of who we see. When we think of mega churches, but they certainly play a pivotal role. I did know that your grandmother would take you to baptist church. Yes. And I wonder what that experience was like and whether or not that shaped this role at all. I was too little to understand anything about the rob probably didn't even notice the First Lady, but I did notice was, you know, I probably felt like little aria. It was quite entertaining for me. And aria, a little aria is a character in the film. Yes. A little aria is a character in the film who she loves the spectacle of church and getting the Holy Spirit. And so I think for me, it was so different than the church that my mother went to. You know, which was a much quieter church. And so whenever I would go to my grandmother's church, I just, I was always, I don't know, surprised by the singing and the speaking in tongues. And the choir. It was larger inexperienced than probably what I was used to. The couple at the center of the film is very well wealthy, but also always dressed in finery. In fact, at one point, you talking about your husband in the film, Lee Curtis child, played by Sterling K Brown. You say there's nothing like a pastor in Prada or yes, yes, she looks at him and she is talking and she says, oh, there's just something out of passer and Prada. As they're in this enormous closet. And displaying all of their blessings. And they've got a lot. That's quite a closet they have in there. Well, it's clear this couple loves their wealth. But they also believe, I think they're doing God's work. Or do they? I believe they really do. I believe that that is sincere. You know, we all often talked about probably when they started, they were full of sincerity, but you know, as time and things changed, you know, there was something that got corrupted or tainted in the thinking. And you know, it just became more and more, and they definitely, I mean, yes, they have a lot. They have cars. They have planes. They have everything. And yet when the movie starts, you've also seen this kind of empty large hollow church. The film at its core is about a couple rehabilitating their image. And maybe their marriage after a sex scandal. There are certainly serious moments and questions being asked in the film. But it never gets too over the top heavy, but I'm wondering if that was a tough balance to strike. Having to keep things funny, even as they got serious. I mean, yeah, I mean, I think the directors definitely were conscious to know that certain things are best swallowed with a little dose of something sweet, you know. And so that humor allowed a way in. To this world and they certainly do respect the church and love so many things about the church, but there's an awareness that it could do better. You know, it could do, it could be better. And I think having to tow the fine line of we didn't want to make these people caricatures. So, you know, you certainly want to make the the humanity come through so that, you know, they're not, they're neither good nor bad, you know? It's a complex situation that has been building for a long time. What do you take away from this film and what might you want your audiences to take away from it? Oh gosh, that's a really good question. You know, I mean, when I read it, the biggest thing I loved is that I thought about it afterwards. It was a script I read, and I kept thinking it will mean many different things for many different people, people who've grown up in the church, many people who haven't grown up in the church or don't know the church. And ultimately we help people enjoy it too. And it feels like a film about second chances, even if those second chances can be very elusive. Yeah. Yes, it is. It is, yeah. It is very elusive. But we've got our devout 5, right? So it's 5 people who show up. No matter what. No matter what. About 5. That was actress Regina hall, her new film, honk for Jesus, save your soul, will be out in theaters and streaming on peacock on September 2nd. Regina hall, thanks so much for joining us. Thank you for having me. Thank you so much.

"You could be anything you want to be. Yeah, he's wearing anybody. Come on. I think it's interesting. And you know, Harry always talks about the fan backlash and he says that anyone close to me gets it. And obviously his relationship with Olivia is a bit complicated, but you know, do you think anyone who gets close to Harry Styles will face that wrath? I think anybody who gets close to anyone in that a list Echelon. Is going to get asking for it. Yeah. If you're an a list status, you get this much. If you're dating a B lister, you get this much. If you're a C lister, you get this much. No one cares about my D list love life, okay? They don't give a that's not true. I go on your Instagram and I go ahead and troll it all the time to see what you're doing with me. Especially when you are out of the country. She's got multiple accounts. By the way, you know what? You keep on looking for Instagram stories. What you really need to be doing, you all need to get smart. Start zooming in on the sunglasses and seeing who's taken the photo. 'cause that's what I do with everybody. If I see you in Dubai. And you've taken that photo in front of that Rolls Royce. Oh, I'm zooming in. I'm gonna check my sunglass game. What was doing in an angle otherwise Justin's gonna troll you. But it is true if I put anybody on my social media and you're right, I have not put anyone I'm dating on my social media unless I know that's the one. And you're gonna make a statement about it. Right. Or just a picture, but people will go ahead and run with it. But imagine going on the red carpet with somebody immediately. They're immediately in the city. The only thing I'll say about this is at least he's dating, dating, Olivia Wilde, so she's an a list star. She can handle the scrutiny. I'm sure it's hard to date him, but she's dealt with that with Jason Sudeikis. And by the way, let's be real. And I'm not talking about Olivia Wilde, I'm not talking about Harry Styles. I'm talking about celebrities in general. They love this. They love to pretend. Like, they don't love it. And I know on days, it gets hard to be scrutinized, but 90% of the time. They love. They signed up for it. They signed up for it, and it's what they want. And I'm here every day on this show because I love it. And I love to hear the feedback. And on that 10% of the time that I get some bad feedback, yes, it does suck, and it does mess with my mental. But the 90% of the time. Right. I'm living la Vida loca right now, y'all. It's great. It's true. Absolutely. You know what I mean? You're taking the good and the bad. So don't act like, you know, Lindsay Lohan took a photo with the ankle monitor on because she loved. It. Absolutely. Okay. That's what we're doing. That's what we're eating today. Can we show your ankle monitor on screen or? Nope. Actually, my probation Roberts asked me not to. Coming up, the drama at the bachelorette, what do you do if your partner's family hates you? Plus our night out with Sterling K Brown, Regina hall and her boob. Sterling K Brown and Regina hall are shaking it for Jesus in their new comedy. In fact, Regina shook it so hard. Francesca got the tea on the tea. You gonna see what all the fuss is about. You are wearing all white and you know what they say when a black man wears all white. He's godly. Either that or I'm about to go on a yacht with diddy. You know who else has been mixing it up a lot? I will say, Brad Pitt. He's been wearing some, you know, skirts. So I'm curious, could we see you had to kill any time soon? Oh, that's bold. Maybe. I'll leave that to Billy Porter who can pretty much rock anything. I gotta ask you about the headline that has made headlines everywhere today. You were up in it. You have been in that he didn't notice hello. No, I was offended that no one noticed. No, not a mega trick. Was it? It wasn't like, oh, Sterling, you didn't, you should have. It was the whole set. No, I gotta do another look. They said they were looking at their faces. But I was like, I mean, that didn't bring anybody's eyes down. She was offended. You didn't see it. I focused where I need to focus. I'm trying to be respectful. Keep it right here. You don't want to get canceled. I don't get trouble. I don't get in trouble. All

"Yeah, I mean, it's not my favorite song, but I thought the production of that number was great. She was performing a tennis court in Compton. She was decked in all, it was a green, yellow, it was like a neon colors, all the dancers and the performers and it was fun. I appreciated it. And it was definitely a highlight. And like you said, Stephen, maybe you shouldn't have started with that. Maybe she would have that. Somewhere a little bit later in the evening for people to get more happy. We have not really talked too much about the hosts. This show was hosted by Regina hall Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes who kind of came out together and then were often presented separately over the course of the night to kind of spread things around. What did you guys think? I liked some of the jokes. They're not necessarily every actual dig they made at people. But there was a joke in there about Leonardo DiCaprio. And I mean, Leonardo DiCaprio, what can I even say about him? He's done so much to fight climate change and leave behind a cleaner greener planet for his girlfriends. So that refers to, you know, him dating a lot of women who are a lot younger than he is. And it reminded me a lot of the Amy Poehler and Tina Fey joke at the Golden Globes a few years ago about George Clooney in gravity demonstrating that he would rather float off into space than spend time with a woman his own age. Those kinds of jokes to me are pokey, but they're not like super mean and they hit kind of the sweet spot for me. There were a couple of references to things like watching power of the dog three times and being almost through it. I did think some of the jokes were funny again. It's hard to sort of put it in perspective because it all got so overshadowed by the direction of the evening. Yeah, look, these three performers are pros. They are natural hosts. They just all felt very comfortable in their skin up there in a way that I think other hosts might want to kind of rush through, which might be one reason. Why? The evening seemed kind of unhurried just in general. Oh God. Yes, for all the time they tried to save by editing in the production categories. They didn't include in the live broadcast. This show is still clocked in at almost four hours. You had to get 28 years of Pulp Fiction. You had to get that energy to acknowledge the 28th anniversary of. I mean, it is an anniversary look at an anniversary and anniversary, but it's not around number. Why are we celebrating the 28th anniversary of anything? Even the 15 year anniversary of June I was like, really? 15 feels you're stretching it. I mean, I'm surprised we haven't done an episode of this show about the 30th anniversary of white men can't jump. I will say I didn't care for their Regina hall bit that was about kind of casting her as this desperately thirsty party single woman, single woman. I was like, what? So, before we go on with the show, we just have to do some quick emergency testing backstage. Don't worry. It's only a few people. It's totally random. If you hear your name, I'm going to start with Bradley Cooper. Timothée Chalamet. She sold it. Yeah, but I wouldn't like that joke if the joke was a guy doing a COVID test by feeling up women. And I didn't particularly care for that as a joke to have, or do either. I'm not going to lie. I didn't care for it. But I think she's wonderful. And I think Wanda Sykes and Amy Schumer were both very well used in this. So I don't know. They were fine. Fine. That's the assessment. I felt it was uneven, but I felt that the whole evening was uneven very kind of shapeless and padded and all the talk of how they were going to streamline the show. They kind of sort of really didn't. But that's the Oscars. We want to know what you think about this year's Oscars at imagine people have thoughts.

"The exception being a young girl named Jasmine, who shows up who played by Zoe Renee, this really fantastic young actress. In Jasmine arrives at this college being noticeably like one of the only black kids there has a roommate who's popular nightmare. It is also cursed to live in the room that is known as the cursed suicide room. You know, where every year a witch possesses one of the freshmen. And one of the freshmen dies in a way that is suicide, probably, but it's probably the witch. We should wish whisper about that too. So she's going through her whole kind of trauma of adapting to this college dealing with this professor named Liv, played by the actress amber grey, who's fantastic. And this professor is by racial presenting, it has long braids and seems to really have it out for Jasmine as one of the only black students. And then the master, the master being like this role of the caretaker of her dormitory a higher up level person at campus is played by Regina hall and it's her first year being the master being the first black female master. Having all of these other white professors come up in compliment her on her on be on having this role in ways that feel very awkward. So that's the setup and you kind of know that this is like a horror film that really wants to get into ideas about race and spaces that are safe and protected to talk to be in and people using racial politics in ways that feel kind of uncomfortable and weird and feeling like you're standing out and not able to fit in and all of that is happening. And it felt like so kind of hilarious and really well observed. You know, like Regina hall to me is like one of my favorite actresses right now. Have you seen black Monday, by the way, her TV show?

"I and by the time you leave that experience. I mean it's so rigorous that you're almost more comfortable creating a character in being on stage than you are in your own skin. And so for me. I was like a newbie to hollywood but i was not necessarily you know a beginner actress and so people always kind of see people success but they don't know all the rejection that went into to this day you know. I don't envy anybody. Success any at any level. Because we don't know what's on the other side what it took to get there. Yeah so the would Rick familia wrote the wood and that was another wind. Because i was just starting to work a little bit and i had gotten a series that was like a one week part in this am i felt like i was further than that and that was another one where my agent was like. Just go do it. And i met tae there. And i met omar there and obviously that turned out to be kind of a classic as well. I feel like knowing today. I had to read with tay for the best man. They actually want me to come in for candy the role of the stripper role. That regina hall wound up. Doing it was the first time that i said you know what i really want to go in for robin and i didn't know if that was going to be like they were going to say yes and they were like. Yeah so. I went in for robin. I'm sure that knowing tae and the chemistry that we had in addition helped to get that and then love basketball. Gina wrote love basketball with omar. In mind we were dating and didn't say anything. So i was listening while he had the role and because people have different ideas of what chemistry is people have to me coming from the theater. You can you make your chemistry. I'm not a believer in. Oh if you're dating you don't have chemistry or if you're not you know there was all these beliefs and i knew that it could jeopardize me possibly getting the role if they knew dating so we just kept it under wraps. She didn't find out until the middle of shooting was like. Wait a second close. She wanted a basketball player. Who could act. The only reason why i got and this is where i feel like. There's some kind of destiny involved. Because the only reason why. I even got a shot to audition for eleven basketball's because one day she years before she even had her deal. She had a a table. Read for the script to hear it out loud in front of an audience and the actress got sick. Who was supposed to read monica and she had heard about me and got my number and tracked down and was like can you take her place. And i was like okay. Fine you know. Somebody said the script was good And we did it becoming from doing a lot of those kind of readings. I gave my all and i really put you know. I've created the character and then she went off got her deal a couple years later. Were wasn't really seeing a lot of actresses. She was seeing mainly basketball players. But because i had done the reading she let me come in because she liked my reading and so those are the kinds of things where you're like wait a second. That is crazy. How there were so many near misses. It's so cool. When actors like allow us to see behind the scenes in the process of how they got their role. So that's still still interesting and especially for that role. I think about you and gabrielle. Union and regina hall and these people who i consider these black legacy actors that were working at what i think is the peak of our genre and how many black women you inspired to continue acting and start acting because they saw themselves in you myself even watching love and basketball and being like oh my god you can know what you want. You can be aggressive and still be feminine woman. All of that was was moving for me. And i kind of want to ask you. Do you feel that legacy still like do you feel do you feel the footprint. That's left on black. Hollywood and how the culture has changed because of it. When i was coming up there. Were like five of us. You know i'm friends with a lot of them. Are real regina and gab. And nia we're all we all get on the phone and so it's nice every now and then to kind of talk about like. Wow this was really cool that we were the ones that were able to do something different than the history of film you know but you don't. You're just living your life like everybody else. Every day it has. It brings its challenges. I'm not walking around thinking you know when people say what's a movie means to them that makes me feel good and because a twitter i know whenever is playing me feel good and it just makes me wanna keep moving forward. I really truly believe in the power of representation of being able to see yourself reflected. i was around as a little kid. My mom was in the original albany company and she was on broadway with earth kit. And i'm stephanie mills. They she did to with the kid. I was like a toddler behind the scenes and watching that show over and over. And then stephanie mills she was. My mother was in the chorus. For the whiz on broadway and so i got to see a little toddler. Black women reflected to me. And so i definitely know that that benefited me in terms of a like a subconscious belief that it was possible. And so. I'm really happy about this moment. Now after black lives matter you know we are requiring now that we you know there's a minimum of representation because it's just it's so important to self worth and self esteem to see yourself reflected..

And why do you think your story resonates with so many. Their response i have received has been unbelievable. I've always in my life than fortunate to have great friends. But when you go through something as as traumatizing in this huge and disruptive as cancer you know you learn. Who's really there for you. And i know my people are in life. And i'm so fortunate for that i think my story resonates with people because i'm very honest and i share the uncomfortable moments that people don't wanna see because that uncomfortableness leads to education which leads to funding which leads to a cure. Di- totally agree. And buddy you want people to understand that cancer affects more than just the person who was diagnosed. Can you tell us about that and your role as a caregiver as you know.

I have three beautiful kids and it is happened to all of us. We're very very lucky that we have to me that supports asks and quite frankly when the spotlight is on the patient it casts very very dark shadow on the people around from work to the community to siblings. And i think it's really important for people to know that two siblings have a really hard time to all people. Yeah they they call league great and they will never know. Yeah i have to tell you that my hugest. You're all that you know that. Means you are all of that. And you have inspired. Not just the folks here at the show with your strength and your peacefulness.

Why do you think this movie is still so popular all these years later and have you noticed that it has a whole new audience. now yeah you know.

"The action continues on facebook. Page to keep up with hot topics and weigh in on the ones that have you fired up. That's right welcome back you all the time indoors. This past year apparently has made it harder to find places to hide but half of american survey say they will have a secret hiding place for their favorite snacks. Some say it's the only way to keep it from getting devoured other say it's their snack and they're not sharing. The question is that i post to you ladies. Do you have a private stash of snacks sarah. Yeah i've been doing this since christmas. Nineteen eighty three There were some sugar cookies delivered to us every year. They were my favorite. If you do the math in a big family that left me about two. I felt twelve was more appropriate. So i hit him in the dining room cupboard and did every year. No one ever found him sonny. Are you also a snack hoarder or is this something that does not affect you. I have to snap quarter now. Because i was an only child my entire life and now all of a sudden i'm married with two children and they're all very very greedy. My favorite snack in the world. I have two functions and also a peanut butter patties and i have to hide them because manny eats. Everything paloma eats everything and so does manny. And i them with all the healthy stuff like oatmeal and so one finds them right so meghan i will. I will approach you with this because with the new baby. I don't think she's seeking out your snacks yet. But it's possible. Do you hide your snacks as well. I used to hide beef jerky from my brothers because we used to fight over it meghan. Well it's like. There's a specific kind kind of trashy and like slim jims. Like it's not like the nice one so great. Ooh yeah he loves slim's nap new joint. Do i have to ask you this question. Because i know there with steam. Perhaps all alone together. Do you hide your snacks from steve. Well he's like a dog sniffing dogs sniffing drug dog rather when it comes to mce ruins so now i'd bribe him. I say in the senate cato. I'll give you a cookie and there you got. We'll be right back. Lucky americans are finally learning the truth this summer about tulsa oklahoma buried underneath the city or what could be the answers to a century old mystery the remains of victims from the tulsa race massacre of nineteen twenty one. How did this happen. Who was responsible. And how do we move forward. That's what we're trying to answer in tulsa buried truth available now wherever you listen to podcasts.

"Back the theory. That kovin was leaked from lab in wuhan. China was downplayed. Almost from the start but leading expert. Dr anthony fao. She says that doesn't mean it's not worth investigating further. Take a look many feel that it is more likely that this is a natural occurrence as happened with saws. Covy one where it goes from an animal reservoir to a human but we don't know one hundred percent the answer to that and since this is a question that keeps being asked. We feel strongly all of us that we should continue with the investigation and go to the next phase of the investigation that the. Who is done so because we don't know one hundred percent with the origin is it's imperative that we look and we do an investigation. Sarah do you think that because this pandemic hit in the way that it hit that everybody had an idea of where it came from but nobody knew for sure and no one was leading the science. Roll out to find out. Do you think that might be a reason. People had so many different theories i do. I think that's partially i think. Also there was some. There were people that had raised concerns early on a couple of years before saying that you know. The safety precautions in this particular lab weren't always followed and when that theory came out that it could have come from a lab came out under the former administration. And i think the messenger matters. I think during that time when that theory started to be told it was buried in an administration and a former president who often kind of trucked in kind of racist terms and dog whistles and so it buried the message that could have been actually reasonable but no one was going to hear it because it came from under trump's administration and the media at that time was used to what he doled out and they were going to push back on that i think more investigation is needed. But i think there is whether the world health organization is the one to do it is debatable because again they seem to have some partnerships or china has undue influence on them. And i don't quite understand that. I think that we need a collaborative international committee economies have been toppled over three million people have died. We need people from all over the globe to come together and get in there because china has not been transparent about this right joys. Flared of criticize pfau ci for not knowing the exact answer when everyone wanted it. Now i mean you know this. Anti science crowd on the right with the with trump has been criticizing fao from the giddy app as if he's some kind of oracle of delphi. Instead of a scientist you know the man gets the facts gets the information and then adjust what he says to people. What do they expect from him. And you know trumpets was blaming. The chinese from the beginning because he was using them as scapegoats. If it happens to be true that it comes from wuhan well that was just a lucky break on his part because he took a guess in my opinion sunny any investigation on. This'll be highly politicized. What's the takeaway for you here. Yeah well. I think it will be highly politicized because his joy just referenced prior administration bungled the handling of the pandemic. There's just no question about it. The prior administration hit a lot of information from united states citizens the prior administration just bungled any vaccine roll out. They had no plans. They didn't follow the obamas. Infectious disease plans. They hampered scientists from sharing information. He was trafficking in. You know saying things like you know. You could swallow bleach and and cure this so. I think that it will be highly politicized but i also and i think if you speak to experts and vinyl genome viral genome evolution. They've determined that this is It's almost certainly was not engineered as a bio weapon like senator. Tom cotton seems to be pushing that in fact it probably was natural occurring but there is still need of more investigation because the bottom line here will be is. You don't know one hundred percent we don't know one hundred percent and science is an evolutionary type of thing so you have to find out everything right right. It makes it difficult. I would think megan that because china is not open about what goes on ever with with anything that might be difficult for folks to actually finally get some real information as to whether it is or whether it isn't. Do you think that that is part of what's happening that we've not been able to get really straight answers from any of the adults from from this country from the other countries is that what is that what you see as well well. i think. That's a really salient point. What we can't trust china as you pointed out it's a communist country who right at this very moment is enslaving weaker muslims and enacting a modern day holocaust and genocide and most of the international guidance has doesn't care and is doing nothing. They're getting away with literal murder right now so we can't trust them. We can't trust them to warn us. God forbid i mean. The crow virus was horrific and millions and millions of people have died. But what if it were like the abol of virus where you get it and you know it's a much more physically violent death or a virus that it was even worse and again. I'm not trying to downplay the corona virus because clearly we've seen just just horrific and cataclysmic it has been but my main takeaway from this. We cannot trust china. Under any circumstances there is no reset. And again i call on the international community to actually start carrying about this genocide happening to weaker. Muslims wonder also if if you know we know that it has been difficult to get information out of china because we got some information early on intel from one of the scientists saying. We're not absolutely sure. What is what's happening here. But and then the next thing you know she was gone. You didn't hear any more from her. So i think we're going to all have to really put our faith in the scientists and hope that they can break through the barriers to get the information because it would be nice to know how to fight this. If it's naturally occurring. That's gonna make it. I think harder if it keeps coming back you know. That's just my opinion and the opinion of someone who knows jack do about science will be right back. I.

"The view. I haven't had to say the words you know who in a while but you know who is back in the headlines. Thanks to new york's. Da convening a special grand jury in their investigation of whether he had a hand in his business committing criminal bank fraud insurance fraud and tax fraud among other things and now costs. He's denying all charges with his goto. It's a politically motivated. Which claim joy when you think he's really worried about all of this. Well you know. I was reading that ninety five to ninety nine percent of all cases that go to the grand jury. End up in indictments. So i mean. I'm a betting woman and i say he could be indicted very easily and i think he's probably trembling of course he'll deny everything it's a witch hunt says that when he was impeached. It was a win chon when they said he was involved in the insurrection. It's it's always a witch hunt and he's always completely innocent. But you know that you're going to find his accounting. This weisselberg are under a bus any day now any day and ivanka who is he. I don't know who he is. He's only been in the family for fifty years ivanka. Okay so stop it. Stop it all. I know whoopi is when he's indicted. I'm going to have a big party with mexican food. Opin yada margaritas everything. I can't wait. I'm having a severe case of schadenfreude as we speak right. I do you believe this. Come out of the house. Sure this case is making him shake in his boots. Maybe this is the one. Take them down a peg. I have no idea. I've become a little cynical and jaded on this stuff. There seems to always be a lot of smoke and we never quite get to the source of the fire. I feel like the former president is like the energizer bunny. He takes lincoln and keeps on. Ticking i remember way back to the russian collusion. You had the hush money payments the call with the ukrainian president. You had the seven hundred fifty dollars in income tax and the not paying federal taxes for ten or fifteen years that we were able to see. He led an insurrection. Like historical never seen before insurrection. He's been impeached twice. And the guy just keeps popping back up. Like i don't know if he can be taken down and i'm beginning to believe that his statement in two thousand sixteen about shooting someone in fifth avenue and not losing voters might be more accurate than we thought it might be not losing voters and just not getting in trouble right. Some of your formal prosecute a federal prosecutor. What does this move signaling to you while grand. Juries being convened usually signals the beginning of the criminal process and i think joy joy stats are probably dead. On most cases that are presented. Before a grand jury do end up in criminal indictments there's that old adage you can indict a ham sandwich and i don't believe that is true but the grand jury being convened means that a grand jury is listening to evidence there listening to witnesses. They're listening and then they're going to decide whether or not to that. There's enough evidence to charge a crime. And so i would think that you know. Everyone should really be very concerned. His team should be very concerned. He should be very concerned. His family members should be concerned because they were part of the business. Ivanka trump should be very concerned. Donald junior should be very concerned You know no president knows no. Us president i believe has ever been charged with the crime but he is likely to be the first one in my view right so megan do you think this may put a little damper on his plans for twenty twenty four. I mean there's a lot of rumors about twenty twenty four right now. I actually think he won't end up running. I think he wants to see a lot of things that are happening. In the world that he said would come true with biden's policies and everything that i've heard through different channels is that he's actually pretty happy right now and getting good about his legacy. I mean take that for absolutely a grain of salt i mean. He's notoriously fickle. I think moving forward for republicans. There's gotta be someone who is going to be able to bridge the maga- people and bridge you know the people who couldn't end up pulling the lever for trump this last time around which will be a very delicate dance. I do think it's possible. I do think there's a lot of policies that are being put in place by the biden administration. That if you are right or centre right you won't be happy with and just reading stats about crime levels going up in major cities historic levels. So there's a lot of ammo for the right. When i sort of agree with what. Sarah said i remember when the muller report was like geraldo rivera with al capone's vault. I just feel like. I've been told for five years that he's going to be handcuffed in trotted off into jail. And i'll believe it. When i see it and they have it. We'll be right back still ahead. Black monday star regina hall on the twenty year anniversary of being wickedly funny in the very first scary movie. Plus we're celebrating and surprising a nineteen year old who battled and beat range answer twice. Welcome back the theory. That kovin was leaked from lab in wuhan. China was downplayed.

Andrew Rannells talks 'Black Monday'

"Thrilled today because Andrew rannells. My guest is not only in black Monday on Showtime, you so I've been book a Mormon girls we were just talking about Falsettoes your hero of mine and come on. Oh, I'm real ten. I'm so happy to be here. Thank you for having me. So look it will never get better than this. I think there's nothing left. This is my finally this is it. I'm retiring after this. Let's start with what's the newest black Monday on Showtime. So it's just you again, even though it set, I'm sure before you, even drew breath. Now now, it's I mean, I was I was a kid at the time. Seventy seven was not really aware of the stock market crash of nineteen seven when I was that age. So so it was very interesting to sort of learn about all of that. And what repercussions that had? But this story is it's Don Cheadle and Regina hall. And I. And we are the sort of ragtag group of traders who work for. A lower financial firm on Wall Street, and they're really trying to make a name for themselves. And it sounds so professional as you describe it. Well, I mean, you said ragtag ragtag these people are basically insane. They're pretty nuts. Yeah. They really they don't know. They don't know abound. Are I think that the this time in this world and particular in the financial world of the eighties in New York? There was a lot of excess and a lot of celebration of excess. And I think we really leaned into that quite a bit with this show. It's very strange because your character Blair is excuse the expression the straightest. Yeah. Of the characters on this show, which is really fun to get to do. I mean, I really haven't gotten to do that since the book of Mormon really that was the last time I sort of got to play that up tight guy, and it's fun. I enjoy doing that. I enjoy I mean don's characters is larger than life. And it's really does some crazy crazy things. And was it's. I really enjoy getting to be the straight guy who has to be there to witness all of this insanity. I get to do some crazy stuff later. But we do a good job of sort of topping ourselves with every episode to see how how far we can get because the other things so we're leading up to the stock market crash. But it really is about this group of people and how they're sort of individual petty, greedy actions have these larger this larger effect on the the world of finance, and it's, but it's about this human interaction that gets very messy between these people. Well, you sort of discovering things about yourself your character, aren't you especially cocaine there's like cocaine it had a major affect on him. Yeah. He really takes too easily. Ooh. You know? We've come a we've all been there. You know? It's funny. I got to sort of be the I mean, Don by far would be the expert because of his role in boogie nights. I think he really obviously did a lot of cocaine, but I have done a lot of fake cocaine because we did it. I did it often on girls so girls head to what is the fake. It's vitamin B powder. Offset so hard to believe it sounds so healthy. I know, but if we did as much as we actually do I wouldn't be here. I'd be dead. I would have had a heart attack. But I thought actors did everything for their art. No, I come on. You've worked with so many people even Robert deniro I did work with Robert in. And I sure that had he been playing this part winning. Yes, I'm probably he would have doubled down. He would if I let you down Mr. barrow, Bob Bosley. You wanted to be called Bob I called him. Mr. Niro, I think a wise personal choice. Right. I I didn't really know how to behave with him. And we worked together we didn't have a ton of scenes together, but we were often onset together. And I just never knew how to behave because Nancy Meyers the director told me she was like he doesn't like to talk about his career. So don't start asking him questions about like raging bull.
