"Riton House, the 17 year old charged with killing two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, goes before a judge tomorrow for a preliminary hearing. Rittenhouse has become a hero to some on the right. Sean Johnson of Wisconsin public radio reports on those pushing that narrative. After Kenosha police shot Jacob Lake, a black man in the back multiple times. The city erupted into protest on August 25th Kyle Rittenhouse made the 20 mile trip to Kenosha from his home in Antioch, Illinois. Rittenhouse, a lifeguard and a vocal supporter of police said he was there to protect the local business and offer medical help if needed. He walked through the crowds that night with an air 15 rifle strapped to his chest. What happened that night is disputed and will eventually be hashed out in court. But a full scale public relations blitz is underway by some of written houses supporters. A group called the Fightback Foundation released a dramatic video compilation of cellphone footage from the night of the shootings. It claims Riton House fired his gun on Lee after being chased and attacked. Narrator speaks of Rittenhouse being sacrificed by politicians. But it's not Kyle Riton house there after their end game is to strip away the constitutional right of all citizens. To defend our communities, our personal property. Our lives and the lives of our loved ones written houses cause got the attention of conservative media figures. Here's former Florida attorney general Pam Bondi, on Fox News. What's it coming, too? In these liberal cities? When teenagers have to go out there to try to provide aid? The Fightback Foundation says it's raised almost $2 million for Riton House. The group's chairman, is Linwood, a prominent attorney who made a name for himself representing Richard Jewell in the 1996 Olympic bombing case. Longtime Wisconsin defense lawyer Dean Strang, who is not involved in this case, says the teens, attorneys may well argue self defence, but it has nothing to do in the first instance with being the hero. It has everything to do with whether you will be held responsible for killing other people or you want. Kyle Rittenhouse is charged with first degree reckless homicide in the death of 36 year old Joseph Rosenbaum and first degree intentional homicide in the death of 26 year old Anthony Huber. Huber. Surviving partner, Hannah Giddings is among a group of plaintiffs who this week filed a civil lawsuit against Riton House and a Kenosha militia group in a YouTube clip. She talks about Hubert. He did not deserve that. He was a Good human Being. The plaintiffs are also suing Facebook for publicizing the militia groups call to arms. John Pearce has written houses lead attorney. He told the conservative news site Breitbart that his client had a god given right to be in the city that night. But I will tell you There's no doubt about this. That is, every law abiding Americans showed up in the city that they love. There are 15 The chaos would stuff immediately. Aside from the Rittenhouse case, it does appear more people are embracing violence as a solution. In 2020, University of Arizona sociology professor Jennifer Carlson researchers gun politics, She says she's noticed the difference this year. Rather than solving problems at the ballot box, she says. Some are reaching for a box of bullets. People are beginning to really think that we have reached the point of no return with regard to violence and whether we have or not. If people believe that we have that is very troubling.

"That's not there. But it really isn't there when somebody like Nixon Man or Richard Jewell or We'll see. What happens with the 17 year old is wrongly accused immediately and maybe they, you know, get their say, and they're you know everything gets cleared, but their name is still tarnished his supremacist and a domestic terrorists and an accusation from a sitting member. Of Congress. Unbelievable. The responsible if there was evidence he was a supremacist and still be it, say it because it's the truth even again, But there's no evidence of that. And say this kid a 17 year old comes later, an outside agitator and I Oh, I just feel like what happened. 17 year old mind what I said earlier, logically consistent. Or you could so that same I don't know who this congresswoman is The George Huguely Ana Presley. Okay, what I'm saying is issue, saying that about other outside agitators. Everyone is claiming that all these rioters are not from the towns that there Having these riots. Why is she calling out outside agitators for writing? She's not. I mean, so again, be be consistent and don't contradict yourself. All I'm saying is, if you're if you're ticked off about outside agitation in any form with the euro, now analyzing the agitation properly or not, that's a different Discussion. But be consistent about outside agin me. This is a really important point. We know that in virtually every riots ensued since the George Floyd murder and later a this year. A lot of these writers and protesters or people who've been bussed in from outside. I don't remember I Anna Presley from Massachusetts ever issuing a press statement concerned about that, But she found that this was the appropriate time to make that stand. I don't know. What I want to ask you Go ahead where you think something was? I don't know anything about it, but I wanted to bring up as we're wrapping up here. The the MBA, the Major League baseball, everybody making a statement. And I just That's another thing that I really kind of. Don't understand. I mean, three days off the MBA playoffs are going to resume, I guess today. And that keep thinking. How is that these players have such a political say, and there are not even any fans allowed in the stands because of Cove. It So much so much. I know it is more winning more than four minutes left here for the show, but but it's it's look if if it is the same overreaction, so they're taking it to another level, and they have influence over people. And I'm looking to play a game. Do your advocacy outside of your game. I mean, if if I mean I can go if you have a job somewhere you're going to advocate during your job. You're probably fired. I mean, so I don't understand. I don't understand again. This This is lack of this this consistency in our society. And then if you're going to protest didn't just quit. Give all your money away, Quit playing the game. I don't understand what one or two days doing things. I don't know. I don't understand that I would love to sit down and asked What is a lower? Why are you doing what you're doing? What are you trying to accomplish? Why are you trying when I want to ask the why and what you're trying to do versus just do something. And then to me, it's like, okay. Do they really believe this or they virtue signaling? That is exactly why I brought this up. But I don't know. I mean, I again I'm not going to make a conclusion. I'm gonna ask question first. I want the I think this is a reasonable question. Why are you doing this? What you trying to accomplish? And what is the problem that you're trying to fix? Unbelievably just start going. No, no, I mean, what's the evidence to that guy? Joy was getting back to evidence. Exactly. That's our point. Evidence simply doesn't matter. It's this this knee jerk reaction that accepts this nation that there's this systemic Police racial bias that's driving the actions of law enforcement, starting, of course with George Floyd and Jake Jacob Lake, that same assumption there and we know virtually every single data source. We know that if something something like 375 million annual contacts of police officers with civilians that that virtually none Are are an indication of some house some sort of structural racial bias, whether it's an arrest or prosecutions or sentencing. We know that we have lots and lots of evidence that end but it simply doesn't matter. That's really considerate, George said. It really is important parent. I mean, because think about what was that number George 300 something like 375 Million. Think about that. 375 contacts annual contacts but establish millions with civilians that that that matters now, it doesn't matter if you're the one that's that's the focal point of oven. Illegal contact or an abuse of authority contact. You don't care about the other 375 million. Trust me, and I get that That's a legitimate point. And to me, of course, like everyone says one is too many. I got all that too. But when you're talking about a problem, and you're making a claim, I always go by the truth. Claim. You're making a claim that this is a systemic problem. You have to look at the system. You analyze the system you say Okay, What's the evidence That makes your your indictment? You're indicting over here. What's the evidence supports that in Diamond. Is that a truth claim or not? Because we are having a huge reaction. If something's not true, the reaction is like killing the elephant with Victoria Fly with an elephant gun for had it backwards. And that's important. The bottom line is this guy's way. Always advocated. What? I've always advocated his critical thinking. That means spar in your mind with ideas. Wrestle with.

"So the wrong movie. That's an yes that's another love story. It's love means never having to say you're sorry which is bullshit so don't follow that philosophy and those are my recommendations all right. Thank you very much so as skelly stuff. I've been playing some games. I actually Put on my via headset in this week. For the there's not been any games on. Vr hardly for a long time. But this week valve. The makers of half-life power a new AAA sixty dollar VR. Game the exclusive via COMPLA- regular and I played some of it and I have to say I was very impressed. You might see some of it to you. Didn't see inside via though you just saw it on the screen right correct. It still makes me feel like well. That's one thing I'll have to say right at the beginning of the game said there's loads of different control schemes and it said I used to be. I will just use this walking about control and I was like Oh yeah. I'm used to do that so this was like the way you just pushed the stick to walk about what you stay stunned in place. You're sitting down like. Can you sit down? There is a saying down mode which I was doing at first but then I realized it. Kinda took some of the fun of it. Because sometimes you have to go into things and like when you sign a chain so it removes those parts and just like walked you through an it was kind of want to do all of these so I stood up and I use the thing that said I used to. This is the control scheme you and then after about ten well now. I played it for about two hours. Maybe yes I felt like it was going to choke it made me feel like you know like Kasich. Yeah exactly I feel because I always feel that way why I'm Pretty. I'm pretty Am I never get carsick though? So it's an interesting combination. No I'm pretty immune to via though I've been I've played like American truck simulator for instance. I have drove like a massive four five hour journey with the headset. One A no ill effects from it and you flown in that one when the plane now which is like a stomach feeling a weird like your brain. Plays tricks with you totally. Yeah and you get like a kind of roll over stomach thing when you start swooping down in the plane but this one just gave me this The games excellent by the way. So it's the Prequel to half life two starring Alex who is the daughter of Vance if you follow the half light story is a whole new chapter in half-life but it's done so well like the actual game itself disick. Yeah but I don't think it would make me sick if a chose a different control methods l. I chose the like. Oh you're fine with just use. This free look free walk. The free walking is what made me feel sick. Because when you stop pushing the stick you move forward obviously your stood still so you brain like why am I moving forward? I'm still stood. I'm studying place and it makes you after a while. Feel very weird and I felt like I was going to fall over and said to feel sweaty and hot and I have to stop now but if I put it on the other. There's another via method of moving and it's called tally bought. And you don't actually walk just points where you. WanNa go and press a button and it zooms you over to it like it's like it's like blinking your eyes and then you're like well that way doesn't give you any sickness because there's no like we. It's not like you're really there. Yeah it's more exactly. It's less immersive but if your week week Oh. Lesbian Amadeus Yeah but did manage to hours until it took me a while to feel weird but then I felt we had for about an hour afterwards. So that's GonNa have a shower. An added colder show and that made me feel bad but are we sure this was from the VR. It was okay the game itself. The detail is fantastic. When when the game opens opens with this it goes to a white screen and you're inside via fades the white screen away and you're in city seventeen. Which is the city from half life and you stood on a balcony overlooking the whole city. And you can you know you can look at you. You've seen well you might have seen via but it's like that you look around of reasons it is all it's cracked up to be because I haven't done it a lot and that does make me feel weird but there is your brain absolutely goes with it now. A Lotta the stuff in there. It doesn't like it doesn't make me go like wow. I'm in Three D. or anything like that. I kind of see the world that way. Anyway but the moments when you're like on the ledge of a building or you're trying to go down stairs or your. There's something like that. Your brain is convinced you really though that you lean back and you like lean because we did the water one where you like. There were like big fish swimming around and I would like move my head to the side like that kind of stuff. I find pretty fascinating that you can't even trick your brain into not doing it. You're sitting there like no. I've got to lean coming toward me and this one because we've come so far with VR. I mean it's like two years into it really the maybe three years. This is like the best the graphics inside the are really a step up from everything else. I've seen because what they did. In the first generation of ours tried to make everything cartoonish because it was easier to render. This actually looks realistic yet does like when I was looking through a glass window. It looked just like in real life. The Way light reflects off the glass. And you know when I was drawing on the window with Markelle. It's very. You didn't see inside the helmet. But it's very real looking. It's weird so as half-life Alex if you've got a strong stomach and if you've got to have a lot there's a buried entry here isn't from this game won't be after headset. Vr controllers is sixty dollars for the game. Not Everybody's going to be playing it but it is quite a thing. I was quite impressed and the other game. We've been playing is due maternal which is a flat game that you play on your money. So it's not but it's too and you shoot stuff and you said to me when a plane. Is there any story or anything stories pretty much his shotgun? There's some demons kill them all right. There's more now I can't complain because I play Games. That have no story. I just build a city or build a house with a little similar in it and right now. I'm playing solitaire spider master spider on master level. There's no story here so I'm not judging when there's no story but when it's just a shooter that just does not appeal to my brain or anything at all right but this dooms got this long legacy and kind of sticking to that light. Boy Detest me like So what's so special about them and I'm like I I first person shooter you like. Oh that's right. Wolfenstein was the first right was pretty much super nerdy stuff there. So D- maternal is. I think it's like this. There was doom in two thousand sixteen which they tried to make it like most story driven and he had a lot of like cut scenes and and be some shoots in and then some exploration this one really just balls out. Hey walk go over that. They'll be a lotta demons like figure out to kill them all without dying and there's a lot of jump in and move in and it's very fast and it's very fun. I like games with no enemy. You do so do versus zombies and I could play a long time till they just made stupid hard and I'm like screw this will you truly wouldn't like doom is not. I really enjoy it. So what's for dinner while I'm going to venture onto the world? See what happens. I'LL TRY TO GET US. Some of hospital offers. You do have a little less other. You can show. I'm not going to work. I'M NOT GONNA use it if I'm not going to work you know and I'm saying if I go and there's not hardly mentioned to let you do less of a work. That is what I'm saying so you can go to work. I can go get a burger. Yeah I'm just saying mentioned. Let's of the state. Yes and we have a letter that says we can travel to go to work tomorrow when I go to work because we are in quotation marks essential or one of those groups. It's a data center until you are. There has to be human someone there the rest most of everybody else can they? They can remote in to the data center. So you see. Got Somebody there to do the work now. You can do everything from home but people are getting by extremely exceptionally well but we need to be there because you. We are in charge of operations. That's physically the condition of the data center temperature moisture electricity all that stuff and so I just feel like somebody I don't feel like I mean someone has to physically be there therefore we become essential and I get to go to work but now I have this letter that had to print out in case we get stopped on the way to work. We can show them this letter. But I don't know how enforceable this whole thing is going to be we'll find out is to be taken seriously for show it is but then they go. Oh we still do everything you WANNA do. And I'm thinking if you stop me and I say I'm going Grocery shopping and they've considered that essential and then they go. Oh okay but I'm actually lying to you. I'm going to a party in a basement whether it's one hundred and we're going to lick each other like you don't know that I it. I'm saying there's no way to enforce a wishy washy. Everybody stayed home when not everybody has stayed home. I mean there's no way unless you see a group of people standing on the corner then you break it up but you just ask me what I'm doing. Oh I have to go get my mother's prescription. Well unless the COP person police officer law enforcement person says okay. I'm going to follow you to the pharmacy. I'M GONNA stand right there while you get this prescription and then I'm going to drive and follow you home to where you deliver it to whomever it belongs. There's no way to enforce that that I'm telling the truth or not on the honor system anymore. No Nice but so we'll see. I will go out into the into the world gauge things as they are nice job. So what's your.

"Kinda well by the poster behind him about sort of like the government is not your friend. Then you know where this guy's coming from a and the very opening of the movie. We hear him yelling on the phone at someone very very brashly and no no holding back and then at the end he's like thank you senator. Whatever so then we get okay this guy. Maybe he's like me. I don't give a shit who you are if I don't like what you're saying are you doing? I'm GonNa tell you. And that's established very early and that continues on so I thought it'd good job outside of the curry so came through for me. I kept I kept feeling not like Oh you know he. He has to talk to Richard. I and actually ask him do this or did you have anything to do with. This enriches faces like you're my lawyer. Why are you asking me back as I have to ask you that right to a baseline in my mind of did like can I can tell I mean? Can they tell? I'll come down. Some people think they can get like a good feeling from it and then he's all in isn't he soon as he says. No I'M GONNA fight for this dude in. And he really is in he. He's all the way through so. I really liked him. Olivia Wilde Place. Kathy scruggs I fall for. She was being a bit over the top. Yeah that was over the top to end. There's controversy about how this character was portrayed in what they wrote and what her character did to get information so you don't buy into what the movie is telling you may not. It doesn't sound to be apportioned with her. Seem to be. Yeah it's very over the top anyway so I thought that was a bit strain. Which is she's a bit too much. Janci from the moment you meet her but then but there are people like that too. Yeah but then when I read the real thing and it was like well this stuff. That is a main plot point in this movie. That didn't happen doesn't happen. Not always well glynis defended by saying we could have been like this so he distinguished by it by a thing is she. She sleeps with John Hamas the FBI guy to get some information from going to tell them that. But it's a true thing. It's not true pies so she sleeps through Jon Hamm Guy to get some information because she's a reporter and then publish a story the readiness were in the real world. Didn't in the real world. She didn't do any of that right. So it's like is not known for his Feminist views so he thought if this lady got this story wrote this article than this is how I decided she got the information. Yeah and that doesn't serve the story in any way because it's a true story correct. It just makes it less. What'd you less credible credible. Yeah it makes it because you like What why make those Nineteen ninety-six and this is twenty twenty two? Are we really still hearing stories about women you like you know? That's the only way that a woman could have got that story. We were bombshell the of the week and they made a character rope now. I understand in that why they made that car. It's a rope because he wanted to have a all. These women rolled into this one character. But in this movie that while this car even though this character was involved in the real thing what she does in the movie is completely it changes the whole movie absolutely because it is a crucial thing that she does. I mean the truth is they went from everyone. He is a hero to an article in the Atlanta newspaper. Saying he's a suspect by the FBI that right there. The difference between hero and now suspect was all out just didn't one day. Yeah so what really happened is what Clint Eastwood is trying to fill in without knowing the truth so that disregard that part wasn't fully into Olivia. Wilde's thing what she was doing like it was a bit too much for me was and I generally like Jon. Hamm Plays Tom. Show you I think always. I like how he plays things. I like him in. Anything is a lot the same exam. Let's be honest I'm not really I mean he's just swabbing sometimes serious and I don't maybe seem different way than I do but I think he played this guy well and I really liked. You just seem like shit to me. Oh I disagree. When he was trying to trick him. I was like what fuck you do. You have different views of things. My God I didn't think he was being shit at all disfigured. I mean I'm not approving of it. I just didn't think he was being shitty so very different rookie guy when he was like when he came into Richard Jewell's APLOMB and he's mothers there they were just Kinda rude and flippant like they wouldn't and I saw. I don't think they're supposed to be nice. They're just doing their job. While it was it was just very a made me. Not Like Jon Hamm Scurry to quite a lot right through to the end when he still said I believe is guilty yourselves. Like get away. Kathy Bates Plays Bobby. Ju What do you think Kathy Bates? She was good. I mean I'm up and down about Kathy Bates. She was nominated for the Oscar. For this year's an emotional older lady who son was being of course according to hurt no matter what the situation wrongly accused and so she did that well. I was convinced she was thinking about that mother at times and like my God. What would this actually like? Almost feel those wheels turning in her performers brain right. I was good I don't I honestly don't think. He's like an Oscar Academy Emmy. She cried a lot and I know sometimes that but She was believed or is the mother. So yeah directed by Clint Eastwood. Put down some of the movies. These are some of the later ones American sniper. The Mule J. Edgar Grunter Reno is discussed is not only a directories movie star for many many many many many years and hell does. He looked him up. Eighty nine Kirk and he's still making movies. Crazy is you know when I when we said the other About legends of Hollywood Diet. I believe he is. He's dying. No you died. Cook Douglas He was all SALGA. Who was also a legend in my eyes right from the old school from the old. I mean there's still around like I mean everyone's there's always someone dying now. I'm talking about these legends of Hollywood. The ones who have been right. But they're looking at volley with seventy years right right so clean. It's one of those. Yeah in all forms like because he's lactaid his rights the music don't forget that my rights than do people maybe don't know that writes the score or at least some of the music for almost every movie. He directs. Yeah you'll know it's a theme to his music is often melancholy. Piano Might Modlin makes you feel a bit sad and this movie's exception house like it can get out of your way so you can just feel whatever like the other stuff like his camera technique and get out the way too. Because you're not GONNA go. Ooh Look up stylized. This is because it's like it's just straight up so IMDB reviews. What are the reviews? People are going to be something to give one star and said let's give ten stars and you like to read the One stars because if you disagree with them you can make fun of them and if you agree with them than you think. They're they're right and you have and give it a funny voice so we'll see how that goes this time. People hate this movie actually GonNa hate. The first one says it's a perversion of cinema. My own my. What's the deal with this completely fabricated side story about a female reports of trading sex for information perfecting? The Clinton would had result to a distraction. From what would have been a great story without the about the version of journalism. I mean that's not a movie. That's not face yeah. It's not the whole movie though but yeah I can see why that would be a sticking point for some people but also because it isn't accurate the next one says why make stuff up. Clint Jewell was treated on fair. But this movie treats female reports from fairly why it was unnecessary. She's dead in a an easy target. I guess you lazy filmmaker Not kind of agree with that Pablo. That's true and this guy says Clinton never disappoints. He knows the perfect way to make a boring low-budget movie. I it and let they wrote a review because guess what they sat through and watched the whole thing. You know. Maybe I'll probably some people. Will this guy says this movie's Americans to the coal no buoying not buying the storytelling? I don't know what that means and forced focusing on hero aspect of simple guy forced American obsession or hero character was a no punctuation that no long rambling collection of words and then finally this guy says this is another very good phone from eastward ruined with a lie about a deceased journalist as she cannot defender reputation say is also craven cowardice from a man remains one of the finest directors in the history of cinema. Obviously I have not revealed the precise details of his head but undoubtedly will be hurtful to US surviving relatives and friends to see a portrayed as an unethical journalist and diabolical poston as a lifelong Meyer of Eastwood. Why most baffling to me is that this light serves no purpose in relation to Eastwood Central Message about the unfair treatment which is inflicted upon Mr Joel and I absolutely under present agreed with. Oh I did too so you can like the movie and dislike a part of it. It's okay yeah once. I learned that that wasn't true. I was I. Don't see the point in it even being like it didn't serve anything. I mean. It just gave him a plot point. It gave him like. Oh this is where things take. Change almost like a conspiracy theory like oh. I wonder how leaked to the press. Oh I bet you this is how it happened and then putting it in a movie you know what I mean. When you're actually focusing on the real thing in the rest nine nine thousand nine percent of the rest of the movie is focusing on what really happened. Yeah it's weird. It's weird so extras there are two extras. On this blu-ray there are the real story of Richard Jewel which was quite good. I thought it showed you. You could probably find a real story on youtube though right like. I'm sure it's been on something like sixty minutes or whatever the time. And then the making of Richard Jewell which is pretty standard gets I mean. Those are the news outlets that promoted. The idea that he was pretty much instantly. Guilty can donohoe. Who Do you trust right? Yeah so they're pretty standard feature sets the two of them so it's not like a ten ten movie for me but I did enjoy the story. Learn something about a situation that we didn't know everything about 'cause I always recommend there's a slight cold. Histories is Hollywood website. You can go there and if it's a movie based on a real event it will show you the route the actor and the real life person photograph and it will also show guy to fill in. I mean is this essentially the stuff you look for yourself on site? It gets it all concisely and it will tell you this up in the movie but in real life this happened. Yeah and it can pass and this movie to be honest apart from that one thing we mentioned it's mostly correct so that's good show was mostly correct to remember when I yeah. Part from the being a fake character doesn't exist so other than that trail so yeah. I think it's a fascinating look at this thing which I didn't know about. I don't know if this is the best way to experience sky..

"But I was like well kitchen but yeah it was good design of the now the story itself feel like. I didn't know the story so I like knowing the story this way but you know it feels very sentimental aways told Clinton again I feel like that's how he goes for things like it's a bit soppy very Saturday at times very happy. Yeah but I did feel for the for Richard Jewel. Those power really fell for him towards the end. Where you know why you could see all like imagine how much pressure it was like. He couldn't step outside of his apartment. That was like a impresses. Appositely press everywhere. There's a difference you know people now. We've had our president trump for few years. And He's been he constantly insults the media. This is the deal. The press is different than the media. Media is to me the amalgamation of freedom of speech. And whether you like what they say or not. You have a brain and you can decide what you don't like the press. Is that pit of Vultures and disgusting intrusive fuckers who sit there with their cameras in your face. And they zoom in on you from across the street. And they microphones in your face. That's like press because I think of that as like old timey movies with the press had their heads on and they're all rushing around. I mean that real people really do that. That's the press I don't know why I separate them out boon to me the media is just it is what it is. It's there to tell us what they see what they think in their own interpretation and we can sort it out for ourselves and the press are a bunch of like insects crawling all over the Paparazzi Yup Paparazzi exactly. Yeah I felt for this guy the end because he was like his life was completely taken over by something that he he was just trying to help people right yet. Nobody intentions at all but then they couldn't it was like the FBI couldn't see like a solution to it so they add to pin it on something. I mean I don't know I. The way is portrayed in this is but I think that people in their jobs also have good intentions. And I'm not. I'm not naive and I am not. I'm super skeptical cynical. I've got it all. Think everybody's full shit however in that moment the people doing that job do not sit at their desk meal. You know what fuck it. I'm just going to pick the wrong guy so we can get this over with like maybe somebody does but I think that's the tiniest percentage and my belief is most of the people in those positions are going to do what they can do right. They just things get wrong. And pressure and Blah Blah Blah. You know maybe I am naive so you can correct me if I'm wrong about this united. I really don't think I am. I don't think that. Fbi agents sit around and plot to put innocent people in prison labeling. Sometimes they have to have the after over unser to something they you look at the evidence they have. They used own filter of the world. They're not robots their people and if they have this whole long list of stuff about this person which in this case they did that all leads to was a big deal at the time profiling. The person is like it all fits. How can this not look at it to them to some anybody's mind? You know if you've got two kids in the living room and you're in the kitchen and all of a sudden some breaks in the living room right in you go in there. What broke was a glass of Kuwait? And it's all over and one kid has kool-aid all over the front of them all over their hands and all over their face and the other kid is pointing straight at the kid with Cooley. Gone she did it she did. It wasn't me was a me. Will that still circumstantial evidence mom right? That's true the kid who's looks squeaky clean sitting across the room could have just moved really fast through the Cup on the sister. Whatever it still looks like that person's guilty and you just want to get the deal closed right like. Oh let's get this over with so I don't put it up to incompetence necessarily these kind of things but just a I don't know Oversight Yeah and an overall sense that we have a problem. We need to solve it and we needed. Then do it right now right now right now and sometimes obviously this one took six years to ultimately solve. But I don't know I just don't want to chalk it up till like evil in these government organizations. I don't know maybe there is. There has to be jerks everywhere. But I'm you know the way Clinton tells this story with any of Clinton's movies I think you can you absolutely no way. He stands as a filmmaker absolutely on the thing. He thinks that the FBI's scoop it incompetence and I don't think that I feel like it did not movie especially the white is extremely on home. I don't think he Protrayed him as incompetent at a whole knowing well funded incumbent. Let me say why he has to. What would you call it like he? Yes to finish the job. Yeah and it does of my walk like by the actually trick. This guy this is real. We just looked up the real makes you wonder how many times they do that too. All all kinds of people. Yeah I mean they pull this guy in without a lawyer. Yeah they say we need you to come in Richard because because of what you've done as a hero we need you to come in and help us make a training video for Quantico for like the FBI orders whatever complaining bullshit. So they're like yeah. Yeah all the while. They're actually luring him in to get him to say things and do things now. I am not above thinking. That's for real. I think that's Shitty. I don't know seems like a a human thing right. You develop the system of games and manipulation and trickery and it's unfortunate that that sounds like that was a real there's also the other seen them making him say the words when the bomber called up the nine one one of the night on the night of the thing they making him say those words into a telephone which is like I said to you if you don't if you do look sceptically. They could just be recording that so they could take that to court and say here's the phone call from the night yet true because we went as technically. I guess I. Also the thing is you're also portraying a particular notion that people have positions like at one point. The lawyer says to him when he's GonNa go get a different job or whatever a little bit of power can make a person turn into an asshole. So don't let that happen to you and I think that might be also one of Clint Eastwood's point of view and I can be honest. I'M NOT SAYING ASSHOLE. Hurry but even at my job just very recently because a start by saying. I have no fear of or respect for unearned authority. A position doesn't equal your authority over me so every boss of ever had issues with the but I don't. There are people in all different kinds of positions that if you just question the tiniest thing there is this almost primal you know do not questioned may come bowl bellowing out. Am I? Don't even think it's a matter of like position anymore. It's just that person is in that position and that's their thing and I feel like that. The Jon Hamm character might have had a little of that like I've stuck by teeth in and this is where we're going you know. Do Nine Right. Try to rip it down. And then he was contrite or apologetic in any way when it was time to come around. And say you're no longer says he's still he did it. Yeah true true. Yeah actually set it. So he's face like I still think your clients guilty as hell. Yeah so yeah. I enjoyed the way it was put together but I could definitely felt that it was kind of biased in a way. I don't against certain people all the way it was presented by against law enforcement. You have to be on Richard. Side of the press in that circumstance. Yeah but I mean that. Is Clint Eastwood? If you watch the films of his you will see kind of wary is you can just kinda say shared away is being presented by Information. You know filmmaking very ordinary right his mic. Yeah like he's camera angles. But that's what makes it. Good is because now all you're focusing on is everything. Yeah performance the dialogue the situation. They're in you know you're more visceral almost because you're not dazzled by like weird camera moves or any effects or anything at all so moving onto the cost. Paul Walter Houser is plays Richard Jewel. Now I knew immediately when I saw the cover this maybe that. Oh tell the I saw this movie. And why is that why? Well Paul Walter. Houser looks to be the star of it because he's right there on the front of the cover and you in things you've seen. I've never liked him ever ever seen him in a lot. Now Four things Thanksgiving Cobra Kai I think that because the characters he plays. It's like this overwhelming. And that could be to his credit. I think he was in Tanya. It must be discredit because during this entire movie and in fact immediately I was like. Oh He's all right. I mean he's he's convincing me of WHO this man is. He never got to meet the man but he met the man's mother and I think the mother approved of all of his of how he portrayed him right. I didn't know that at the time but I was like okay. Okay he's doing all the mannerisms and body language and the reactions and he's really holding back a lot of goofy. Yeah and I was I was all right with him almost immediately. I didn't have the issue. Was I know this character from real life kind of situation? I'm not a fan of that type of personality traits that come with it but I understood. He was really doing a good job so I'm turned around for now. I actually enjoyed him in it. I thought it was. I don't have anything him and against. I've just never like may not be liked him in anything. They have in a INC when he turned up in Coburg. I knew because he's like goofy character in like the guy was a bit too old to be at the Grad school with the kids. But I yeah I liked him in this because he actually got me a bit motioning towards the end because he don't get me there but I know what you're saying yeah some Rockwell plays Watson Bryant is the his lawyer in this always good he is and I really appreciate him in this and I said to you earlier it was about how. He's kind of a bit rough around the edges. The character he's played. I don't know if the real life guy was like that but you know he's like a bit you can tell it he's not fully together like doesn't quite dress like a lawyer you think he now. He's got potty mouth sometimes he's.

They've all correct. This is the before the after the show discussion. But it's sort of before the after the show for the entire world where a discussion now without this part of the topic but I mean the truth. Is We get along fairly unscathed because our life is very much. Just us in this house anyway. If you noticed I go the store go to work. Occasionally go visit family and friends that that's an. How do we are not social people? So the idea that all social activity all restaurants are closed for sit in churches all gathering spot offices cinemas All that done like nobody's going to anything like that. I can do is drive through or order ahead of time in a restaurant. They'll bring it out to your car for you. Things like that grocery stores are still open but you have to keep six feet away from everybody but for us. We don't have children. We don't have friends that don't pretty much exists on the Internet anyway so we are in a very interesting position to where it's not touching terribly yet now. We're both healthy. Everyone we know is healthy. So we're GONNA go with that for now. Yes and we not. We haven't run out of food. I'm also fortunate that I've lived alive life where I've been taught at a cook. Everything from bread to corn bread from scratch to homemade pasta also made the effort to learn how to cook over the years. So we have a lot of ingredients. So we're good. We don't have a stockpile of anything unnecessary at all. Just if we have to hunker down we've got dried veggies to make soup. We've got he's flour to make bread and I mean moves arrive on top of that. What happened last night? The Hailstorm Golf Ball size hail on our house. Now I've looked around pictures of our town and even out our town. They had put a tennis ball next to some of the hale same size and right now. We're under tornado warning. So we have this lovely springtime weather here in Middle America. So it's you know the universe is not made for us to just happily live our lives on everybody unfortunately. Yeah and that's it for the world update. That is so stay safe while she owns. Yeah unless this is way in the future still wash your hands always wash always and say six away you do. Hate me washing my hands. I don't hate it but you're fucking pretend to be like a surgeon or something that's unnecessary in normal everyday life. It is very unnecessary. Do not go anywhere. I've always been a hundred show. I know but it's like compulsive and I don't like anything. That's compulsive guess. What was compulsive folks will live in the dividend? Let your life hasn't changed so washing. Your hands isn't changing your reality. It's not like you're going anywhere and touching anything people are saying to me now you've got to wash nuance than like I'm already. You're not going to touch anything. That's why you're supposed to wash your hands when he touched strange things if he touched the mail address trashcan yesterday. I was like I'm Josh. Ken came from us. Know the one. This goes outside on the road that okay. That's fair but still compulsive you know but always I'm not. I'm not like one over by the whole horrible situation to be in favor of you. Washing your hands like I'm rushing. Yeah you're good at it. I'll give you that. I agree with it all right so it is today March. The twenty eighth. This is after the show. Six hundred twenty seven. That's a lot of podcasts. We look at a movie every week. Oh yeah somebody this week. Talking of six hundred and twenty seven got nice note from a lady called Zoe. You said she's out like he's self isolated and she found our podcast looking for movie review podcasts and she started listening and she really likes it. It does stick and we're helping her out in her solitary confinement. I'M GONNA GUESS. Right now that she's already on your side and she likes you better than me. Because I'm bitching about your washing your hands. Well put that same which is delayed. There you're the by Guy I'll let's if she's only just joined us. That is the way it is. I am always the bad guy. He's correct good. So where a movie review guest. We review a movie every week this week. We're looking at the movie. Richard Jewel is twenty nine teen movie on. Blu Ray Right now is on digital as well if you can't get out that's a by blue race which you probably can't zero closed those places. I'm assuming no no 'cause like Walmart has to stay open gazette. How True Wilma. Yeah so it's out everywhere digitally on Blu ray from our friends at Warner Brothers. Who sent a copy for review now sits? Are you give a synopsis of the movie? And then I will give you the one off the box. Clint Eastwood's telling of the Hollywood version of the real events in quotation marks that surrounded the Olympic Celebration Park bombing of nineteen ninety six. And it's about Richard Jewel. The Guy who found the bomb was accused of being the bomber and sort of Clint Eastwood's take based on a book. That's very Richard. Jewel friendly and the truth about the whole but also some quillet. Clint Eastwood's Own personal things tucked in there. And I'll tell you what it says on the box. Richard Jill tells the story of the security guard who discovers a bomb the nineteen ninety six Atlanta Games and take swift heroic action saving countless lives but in.
"richard jewell" Discussed on WSB-AM
"Is Richard Jewell from Cartersville it really is you'll like the the guy from the Olympic car bomber it is a spell at exactly the same way and everything man I never heard the end of it wow did you go tell it you tell family Hey Clint Eastwood made a movie about me wanna go check out yeah she goes through that little bit of time Richard what's on your mind yeah what I wanted to point out is the if you look on YouTube and and go to a spring break twenty twenty it's going on man I mean it's Pensacola Jacksonville fort Lauderdale Miami they're just getting their party on and they're worried about no coronavirus kids from all over the country going down their party and and then they're going to go back home and spread it all out that's that is the worry because the younger folks may not even feel like they've come down with anything or you know if it's the traditional spring break that that next day hang over that they think they're suffering from maybe it's corona virus that's bringing him down for a day and then they hydrate and they go back out a couple days later they find just just drink too much one night I don't know Richard I think it's interesting because the younger folks are not being affected and they know it and I think they're not as afraid about it as some of our seniors right it's not slowing down at all and when they go back home he might be taken away the name might be Richard thanks a lot for a being out there we appreciate your call I think we also have another open Mike who wanted to talk a little bit about some of the stimulus stuff that the president was talking about today and how that may or may not affect the way you're going to do with your taxes I'm curious about this this check that they want to send everybody for a thousand dollars at the end of the year and twenty twenty one do we have to do it to pay taxes on that inclement and also if they do over the payroll tax for certain certain period of time at the end of the year when we do our taxes in twenty twenty one do it is there going to be a problem the we have to pay of of like a lump sum all the sudden here's to pieces with that obviously the first thing they're talking about anybody who earns less than a million dollars if you're an employee in American files taxes that you would get a thousand dollars or so check would you have to count that as income the short answer is more than likely yes it is a a supplement to what you would have maybe already gotten but if you have lost your job or if you've lost income there's so many people and how do you decide you know it's the fair thing is you treat everybody the same give everybody that thousand dollars but the next thing would be you know if if you do that you know there's people that are in the commission area there are people in the service industry people that are waiting tables they're the ones I probably could use more than a thousand dollars where people that are still salaried people that are in the positions that they are in their considered maybe this is essential for their job essential for whatever they're doing they've already been collecting their paycheck they probably don't need it but how do you differentiate and you know are you gonna be upset if your neighbor Bob who's got the salary job doesn't get the check but because you're an entrepreneur and you've been you're working at your home and you've traditionally made more money than Bob but now all of a sudden you took the hit more the thousand dollars are certainly gonna be good for you so I I don't know you know where that's going to end up falling when it when it all gets argued and decided and in Congress ultimately it does put money in people's pockets if they start to get get in trouble here in the next few weeks losing their jobs the flip side you talking about if they do the the moratorium on payroll taxes and some other things like that I don't know that you can then be turned around and held responsible if they don't take the money out I don't know if you're gonna get stuck with some lump sum bill I would hope that our legislators would sort of look at this as a pause as we're not going to count it because either you know if if they're trying to make sure that you take home a little bit more of your own money you would hope that the reason for that is to be able to give you the ability to handle the bills and some other things are coming your way into the economy recovers it would I think it would be in poor taste if they left it in such a way that said by the way the fact that we gave you three months without having to pay those bills now are you owe them that would be really bad I said this earlier with a Christian if you were listening as he began coverage at eight o'clock eastern through till the eleven o'clock hour I said when I got in there for just a few minutes I would be more interested to see if you could get maybe the mortgage industry to say we're gonna put a pause on paying mortgages were it not to say that you can't you won't have to pay them you know but if you're let's say you've got thirty more payments left or a hundred more payments left whatever your mortgage term is we're gonna pause it for maybe two periods yet two months were let's let this kind of right out and they just shove your your your payment schedule to where you'll still have two more don't accrue interest almost pretend like everything's frozen you know how we can freeze our credit I'd love if the mortgage industry did that I wish the utility industry we consider that would be good to just say okay we're not gonna charge you for this month's light heat air we're gonna absorbs that for our fellow Americans are maybe based on your income level you know whatever the same formula they're using maybe that would be another thing that they could talk about this a little more creative because it's nice if you get a thousand dollar check but if you could put your house payment off for a couple of months to kind of just get your feet underneath you again if you could put your electric bill if you could put your or you know the utilities I think that would be a something to look at as well and that puts more of the onus on the private sector than it would on taxpayers because ultimately whatever this stimulus is we're paying for it it's seven hundred eighty five billion dollars coming out of taxpayer funds one way or the other so I hope that's a quick answer to your question there I I can't say that I know for a fact because we haven't seen the legislation all right eight hundred nine seven two eight two five five that's one eight hundred nine seven two eight two five five if you want to be part of the program this evening we are talking two things simultaneously cove it or a covert nineteen of the corona virus as well as tonight's primary one thing I want to throw out there for people to think about that we heard about our spring breakers and people going out there and still join in joining maybe getting out there and doing things and maybe they shouldn't be in such a crowded place there's nothing wrong with still going outside there's nothing wrong especially if you're healthy you don't suffer from any underlying health conditions going for a hike taking the dog for a walk maybe you in the K. and your significant other you know maybe just having some time to walk and talk in your own subdivision as long as you're not surrounded by a mass of people you know you're still getting fresh air you're still getting out there you know disinfecting clean the house you know it's spring we always talk about spring cleaning this time of year we've had some really nice days open the windows air out the house you know if you've got you know counters and surfaces that have been may be infected by guests and visitors you know if you clean those off open the doors open the windows for period of time maybe let you know see if you can't let that help you already let mother nature help you as it often does at the end of cold and flu season if you're out and about if you feel like you are going to patronize a restaurant or if you're used to patronizing a restaurant I mentioned a lot of folks like to call it a taco Tuesday or they go out for maybe a trivia Wednesday or whatever the day of the week they may have a gathering with friends that that business is is relying on you to show up well right now we're being encouraged not to go to restaurants not to go to pubs maybe that place has a the ability to buy a gift card or buy a gift certificate maybe you can call them up and say Hey can I give you my credit card number I'd like to buy a gift certificate I can pick it up later or maybe I can you mail it to me or what whatever you work out so you can have limited exposure maybe it's just Hey I want to come by and just pick it up I want to have it ready for me at the front so I can come and grab it and go and I'll use it another day things like that that if you've got the means and you are and you are healthy you are feeling like you want to keep these businesses the flow because a lot of mom and pop businesses out there that will require your local dollars your local economy keep in mind the server I have eldest daughter who makes a really good living waiting tables and as serving as a bartender and she has said in the last four days her tips have gone to almost nothing and if you've ever worked in the service industry especially in waiting tables the lion share of their income comes from tips it's not from a salary you know it's what two dollars and twelve cents is the minimum wage that they have to pay for server if you are getting tips so if you are still going out there maybe you're a traditional fifteen percent temper keep in mind that surgery may be losing a lot of money if you're argh if you are going out if you are be a patronizing a restaurant or but a local business maybe tip a.
"richard jewell" Discussed on Midnight Double Feature - A Film Podcast
"I guess I'll watch it and look medieval out really my thing but I definitely think this is really cool visual style and that's hooked me and the guy's name is de tell is that he's nine and he was in line right as he was in line. Yes he was the Lia I am I am. I am Cain to see more of him Sir. Well it's not my genre. I think I'M GONNA check this out but you seem really hot for this. I'm sorry for this third says okay. I am excited base on the studio learn. This isn't a film twenty four. Just knock it out of the park. It seems like pretty much every time. Like I've got the lighthouse out right now. Which is I? I'm dying to say it's not. It's not actually. It's not out in Australia yet. I think but The twenty four just like they did uncut gems. They're solid but yeah. This is. Let me read the Synopsis. This is I am sorry down for this a fantasy adventure. Based on the theory and Legend the Green Knight tells the story of Sir. Gay Go on King Arthur's reckless king on his reckless and headstrong nephew boombox on a quest to confront the economist green not a gigantic grains green skin. Stranger signed me up I mean David L. Lsu Canda Joel Edgerton of button down that this she hit heavy. I think the goal of this trial is Kinda. It's meant to capture the atmosphere. Yes yeah absolutely. It seems it seems like it seems strange. It seems like what the fuck is going on and I love Did I love that in a trial especially like if that seems like a twenty falls bread and butter like that's kind of like the marketing department on the on the whiteboard? I guarantee your point number one is how do we make this wit? Yeah come trailer to could be the chance where it grabs me but I am intrigued. Which is more than I can say for. Most films with this type of setting so ezer is my eyes are open. Nuts and wet am reading here. Weta digital will on the visual effects are when a digital Avatar Lord of the rings base at New Zealand. They're great visual Effects House. So yeah let's talk about. Let's not I mean. Let's talk about this right out front. We F- Matt Raves Batman. They Batman Director that Matt Raves Plaza. Something to his instagram short video but really really revealing really cool. I look of Robert Pattinson in the outfit in the suit for the Batman which they yeah it was cool it makes me think a lot about the Jirka. Reveal like the joker screen test regattas. And there's probably one to a year before me was. I forgot about that one. You're right yeah so it seems like this is like one of those new tactic for revealing sort of stuff. In a way it's cool. It's a smart idea is icon at characters. Because you do get curious. And what they're going to look like and traditionally no we just get a photo of something shitty this fall stylized and it looks cool and this definitely does look cool. This looks like first of all the first thing that strikes me is the choice of redlining and just gets me gets my brain thing. What is this main houses? Time to the themes. What do they want to think? And the music is this original music made for this or is this correct. So this is how I like Alpha sample of Muckleshootcasino skull for the movie right. It reminds me a little bit of one of the few things. I like about Batman. V Superman was. I realized Hans Zimmer's taken Batman theme. How overly epic. It was just really big ethic. That is a bit too. I actually can't remember it. Remember a suit man's one now that it was really it was really not what you expect it to be but this retains the element of really epic like really in your face nece. I feel it's definitely gone for something different. The Hansson was was very more like it was like Strachan year. This is a bit more like I don't know not that but the main thing we want to grow is the suit right. It's interesting. I don't think we've seen a suit like this on film but we've seen this a lot in like video games and stuff like that allow counts. Kinda patted looks really. It looks like it would fit well in a type of series of movies that are going to try and appeal to like the blockbuster. Start Arkansas this next to ironman. I could see Batman. Fight Ironman and the It's not like surrealistic and shit like like a Christian. Bale it's not overly cartoony like the Schumacher films. Honestly this is something I would have liked. Jaume Schumacher sorry. I'm sorry are probably would have preferred the Justice League films. Zach sirens go with. I think putting him next as well as the flash it would make sense but it's Matt Raves as well so I don't expect them to make a movie like those too much sir. I'm very interested because I feel like with this stall. We think. We're going to get a real stylized own which is like Matt Raises Theater. Style to him. But I wouldn't say it's like this some really interested. Say how this goes into the rest of the film and have carried around him look and if even a good indicator for that The last thing that talk about I think is a lot of people pointing out like they're not showing you the horns but the top of the mosque. I wonder what that means. Some people say. Maybe it's like I can go them. He didn't have the horns. Who's sort of like a bold capital most IHEART? Not but I wonder why that was intentional. Allied Heaven wanted to. Yeah I imagine they just have the horns student show at a something but yeah overall he looks good in the well. What do you say? It looks like Batman whether you reckon I think yeah I think the screen tests at the cameras caught a bit like first of all like Michael. I'm a big music person and a big composer person and allows. Saris really awesome to hear that score like it sounded very haunting without being brooding like very like our overall like super doc darkness. No parents like this. I really I really enjoyed it. I really glad we got a taste of that. This as well looks fantastic. I think it actually reminded me a lot of autumn night. 'cause I reminds meals like like like the plight kind of move wherever he kind of wants them to or like how. He's kind of like you know moving or like dealing combat like you know what I mean. It kind of like you know. We go to look at that shoulder. Pad looks very metallic. Look very solid and sturdy. Doesn't look like fabric all fiber like Like the Justice. Leitch is good. Yeah it's something different exactly so I really enjoyed that. One I do want to talk about. Is THE CHEST PASTE CHESS LOGO? Rick in the after body posted this theory. That's going around the Internet right. Now that the chest insignia might be made out of chills gun that killed his parents that he may is also. I am so down for that edition because it just adds like. I'm sure it's being done in the colleagues before but it just adds so much to the character of Batman into kind of like a a reminder of like why he does what he does what he puts on the guys out every night and bates criminals to death. So I really really appreciate that if that's the case and it does look like to. You know like he's put like he's GonNa cracked open a gun and like you know put on each side. Yeah exactly the The red light. I think people are just looking into that a little bit. There's on-track really get from that. Besides like just Just just kind of like atmospheric light like a really pickup sales close the Valentine's Day. So maybe they want us to like full. The first came out of Valentine's Day said maybe Valentine's Day red. It's that they robotussin looks right like he's got the Chin like he's got like the sturdiness. The brooding down like I dig it bad. Always said the key to good. Batman is a good chin. I've I honestly have said that many times and I think he has a chin and I like how. He's definitely a younger Batman and I wanted to play it for a while. I just want to also say I think one of my big problems. With how Warner Brothers has treated. Not just the whole Batman Franchises ever since Chris Nolan knocked it out of the park. They've been so fucking I I've been. I think confused on what to do with the success. I think they are I. They're like okay. We have to emulate this man of steel by Tron attach crystal anyway they could and hit or miss. It wasn't exactly the same. He'll say that and then I guess when they did suicide squad they realized that to do the complete opposite for joker so that's probably why they wanted to explain. Holly Quin and that. But then I had a lot fucking problems with that and that was kind of a swing. Miss a huge swing in the miss and then. I feel like with Ben Affleck. It was a cool concept way to be different Batman like the idea of old the Batman. His Bain through some shit so the way they can sort of introduced where have to fully introduce him unfortunately as a bunch of shitty films and on a on us. I think Ben Affleck did not make a good swine. That might also come down to the way as directed in the writing and stuff but I just I just he. He was dead to me had no personality. I didn't love it but to be honest. The the main the most boring pot about Batman a lot of the is Batman lack. It's more about like it's noise personality. What brings us to him. It's more about how he deals with his enemies. 'cause he is the best rugs gallery no matter what and and the way that he handles things and stuff which I guess in a way is also his personality. But I just really had trouble. Connecting with Ben Affleck's Batman. Some really came to seek a young probably more charismatic. And He's earned way maybe act or converse at that but still on board that Batman so our plus Matt Reeves. Directness Buck. Yeah I think we're in for good movie. Oh one hundred percent man. I'm sorry I'm really strict religion this next movie too good live action rid law for a while. Now I love him in the Games and I want a WANNA WANNA good rid la. Yeah I just recently ray watched prisoners and Paul Diner is the guy playing the love and I can't wait to see him play the loan like he's just such a good location act he's also in you know there will be blood. He's just he's top notch. I'm I'm really came to see Colin Farrell as penguin like I wanna see how they like what direction they take. The Penguin because Colin Powell was just. He's awesome Bigham. I've said this before and I'll say it again on the podcast..

Kathy Bates discusses her Oscar nominated movie 'Richard Jewell'
"This is popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a great movie for you to see right now called Richard Jewel based on a true story but my guest today Kathy Athey Bates who you know from so many things I could mention them but then the show would be over because she has too many credits too many awards but she plays the title character's actors mother in this and she will break your heart six ways from Sunday. But today we're GonNa be having fun are absolutely welcome to the first time you've done done. This popcorns yours get no no. I've lost sixty pounds in managed to keep it off the last three or so I've been on. They sell popcorn pretty okay at least and we're smelling as Peter Stocks. The top doing this so you just got of course all the awards you have. Now you have a new nomination as best supporting actress for Richard Jewel for me. Ah The best award for this movie has been the fact that bobby jewel richards mom who's still alive Loves the movie. Because if she didn't now I know Gosh 'cause in the movie you know how she got Tom Brokaw. I know I know I know. We don't want her to be getting mad. Now you know and also You know there have been Statues in Centennial Park and young and Billy Payne who brought the Olympics to Atlanta. And finally there's going to be a a plaque with Richard's name and what did he say. Oh well that's a good thing should set that up or you should. Why should I work really really? Yeah that's it no Richard Jewel. That's the name of the movie. Clint Eastwood directed at but a true story. Can you tell us a little about Richard J. Just absolutely Richard had been a cop for a few years and then resigned or was fired depending on how you look at it. And then he we went to become a guard at at A college nearby and he got leftover the the thing with Richard that I found so tragic about this whole story story is that he was this hyper vigilant person. Ever since he was a kid at nine of the police the police even as a kid eight in church he wanted to help people And even in Turkey would run around and make sure everybody had a program and then later on when he was a cop he carried like one one hundred thirty pound you know battering Ram but he also had beanie babies for the kids who he might find who had been in accidents so he could give him he was is just this generous simple humble kind man who wanted to help everybody and it was that vigilance that Helped him in his job. He was hired to be a security guy for the Olympics. They were calling everybody in and he was at the sound and light tower and and he'd gone off to the restroom and he came back and there was a bench there and he noticed right away there was what they call an Alice. Pack this big military pack the officious very suspicious and so he told the sit idle like that and they say oh. Come on Richard he said no no I have a bad feeling and they so they brought in the bomb guys and he described it that the the guy went underneath and looked at it and then he just froze and he just back very slowly out and he told his buddy to turn turn a cell phone off and they tried to get everybody back as many people back but through a series of mishaps and nine one one calls and not being able to get in touch touch with people Eric Rudolph who actually planted the bomb and was not caught until like six years later Had this phone message You know there's going to be a bomb in Centennial Park in thirty minutes and thanks to Richard got all that is out of the tower. He was running up and down with doing everything everything a hand and suddenly he became this hero in and then for three days three days and his mother was all got that three day. Yeah my mom his his mom he's on TV. He's bets right he's on. TV is the hero of the day if CNN wanted to talk to him and what turned out was there was a leak from the FBI to Cathy scruggs at the Atlanta Journal Constitution and they decided to break the story and overnight they everybody turned against him and said he was the he was the guy he exempts Mama Except Momma. She was there for him she was they were very very close. She had two miscarriages ages and Richard was her only child and Both his real dad and his step step dad banished from their lives for various. The reasons and So he was her child her boy you know and she knows she knows how he can be be overzealous knows the things that he shouldn't be doing. You trust the police so much too much that it cost him by they use. This is what was so cruel colon. I remember when I started out working with Clint. We were all there to meet with him and I said why do you want to do this movie. And he said because I think it's an American tragedy and he said this is a story that people need to see Jon Hamm was down in Atlanta and people said well what are you doing down here. And he said Oh it's about the bombing and Oh yeah that guy. Richard Jewell who was the bomber summer. Because there's some suspicion and for eight days without any evidence People camped out you know media the FBI suspected in even when they brought him in for his first interview they already had a cell for him. Yeah we like him for this. That's what they always say. Yeah because the public. Everybody's demanding to know who did this. There's that desire. Why are to get somebody up there and say he did it well? There were millions and millions of dollars resting on this because of the Olympics and they had to get it sorted say it's nineteen ninety-six on this is happening so we weren't even in the big cellphone period of the everything was just taking off and don't forget we'd had waco the Federal Building we had Ruby Ridge. We had ninety three Truck Bombing World Trade Center so it was the beginning of the new normal ordinarily of this terrorism. And and it's that going. That's that seesaw. From we love you to stay away from us. I think that the real tragedy and I'm sure that this is what bobby default is that the very quality that enabled him to find that bomb his vigilance. They turn that into a liability And they beat him up with it that to me I think is just the tragedy of all. We'll one amazing scene that you have among renting in this is when bobby went on national. TV making a plea to President Clinton at the time yes to see what's happening and do something for some. Yes so let's look a little bit attack okay. My son is innocent. Richard is not the Olympic the big park bomber. He saved people's lives. Please hear me Mr President and help me. My son is a hero. If they do not intend to charge my son. You please tell us. Please tell the world Mr President. Please clear heartbreaking. Breaking it is is really is. I don't know how many times you had to do that. Well actually we got it in the first take. That's so clint into eastwood is fresh and real. Whenever I've been on a set of this it's always let's move on now but you know people say that the do said I J do when you're always think it's going to be quick but it's not that he takes his time and he leaves it open and it so efficient that he doesn't need need to do more than a couple of takes? Is this your first time with Clint Eastwood. Absolutely absolutely what was that like was a nervous wreck I was a nervous wreck. Check it I I and I think we all were because we all wanted to just I mean we all WanNa do our best all the time. But when you're with someone like client or Mike Nichols just you really and I think we also felt a real responsibility to bobby she survived. Of course she's still alive. And and Richard passed away ten years later he was thirty three when this happened and He got some money CNN NBC you know. They sued them and but the Atlanta Journal Constitution never accepted responsibility for it and the real. FBI Guy who's played by. I Jon Hamm went to his grave saying this guy did it. We see that teen in the movie where he says I still think yeah even when somebody else has confessed knowing it. That's the kind of thing. Well it's a movie that is pretty hard basically on the media and on the feds. It's really saying that in a world where we're supposed to trust certain things we've lost it you know that was nineteen ninety. Six things are worse now. Well and I think it's important to realize is that they just got it wrong and they were in such a rush to try and say the Olympics. That had really. This was only the second day I think it'd be Olympics and and So that was really driving it. And I don't WanNa paint it with two broader brush because look more than ever we need the truth from the press more than ever we I need the truth from the FBI. You know the government we depend on those institutions so that was very specific to this case and I hope people people don't feel that we're just trying to malign those institutions. What does Clinton do when after take? He's happy with it. Well this is what I love of about him and and I didn't realize this is that he just lets the camera. Keep going and we just keep going The scene may be done. I mean our lines. May It'd be done. But we just keep improvising and just continuing to live in that situation and he gets a lot of great stuff that he can use and it's also an opportunity for us to have more time together to experience the chargers together especially nowadays when you don't have rehearsal time you're you'd have your as my friend. Jessica Tandy God rest or used to say your kitchen work nowadays. You have to do your kitchen or in your kitchen you know at at home alone so it's great to have that it's been working. Well when he was when Clinton was here last he was saying that he hates movies. Where the director will say? Hey you know because he said I'm really quiet about it. I just go go when you're ready when you're ready. Just do something I also heard about. I don't know if this is is apocryphal. Or not was when he was doing Spaghetti Westerns and they would scream action the worst would at all also in TV. You know it's just also crazy. The and I think that's when he he developed his style he thought you know. Wait a minute. Everybody's just rushing in and getting it wrong and rushing and getting it wrong again and he just wanted to keep it real simple simple. He says when you're ready people going like this and I remember the first time adequate seen merge running downstairs in Iran into the sound guy who are really liked and I was was trying to speak French Dami said and I thought I thought the scene was over. You know and then that's when I realized it's not over till it's over it until he says it's yeah that's got it he also has. Can I just say he has an amazing cameramen Stephen Campanella he's he's been with them for twenty five years like many of the people on the crew. It's like a family and he just knows how to tell that story with the camera and one of my favorite shots and Clint's to win when the FBI are there. And you see Richard putting his blue gloves on and we've been telling him and telling them not to help the police and then it pans over to salmon. I just standing there looking at him. Like he's never gonNA stop. You know you just wants to throttling. But whatever he's doing he's doing great eighty nine now. Yeah he's still sexiest. Hell you go see. And you've turned that he is. He is sexy telling you. Imagine what it'd be like when he's ninety at like good wine. Everything is perfect to do. Well you you've worked with so many people you know Mike Nichols and primary primary colors. He's somebody I missed tremendously. He's not only a great director but he's just one of the smartest most fun people people that ever lived on this earth. Yeah I agree I remember. I was at an awards thing I think it was the EMMYS and and I lost you know and like about half an hour later. I get this text for Mike. Saying you're among one of my favorite actors I've ever worked with and I thought well that's it dude. I know it's like how lovely of him to do that. In that moment it is but he was right well he was well. It was one of the high points of my life to work with him. I and with that

"Waiting to see if the movie happened happened and I gotTa `bacterial infection on the last week I'm like Puke in between scenes. I ended up going to the hospital for dehydration and stuff and and I finally made it out of there there and I think maybe a week later I was on the Warner Brothers. Lot Meeting Clinton and then a couple of days later meeting Bobby Jewel Watson Brian and and it was all sort of happening within within this six week time window but okay so you had said earlier on. We talked In this conversation that you thought you were to get to this point but maybe not this fast puts when it's actually happening. You're sitting across from Clint Eastwood with the PLO. Basically at this point I I guess it was still not a done deal but at the idea that you would be potentially starring number one on the call sheet title character in a Clint Eastwood Movie. That must have been kind of surreal. I didn't very surreal still. It's not against worn off. You know I think people think my life has changed drastically. It hasn't isn't the drastic thing was I got to work. Clinton Caffeine Salmon them. But but you know I didn't really have time to second guess I didn't have time to be fearful. I kinda SORTA like the fear and love thing I really had to like just man up and do it and hope that no one made a mistake here so when I showed up to set I acted I'd like the most sort of elevated version of myself not out of arrogance but out of the poison takes through traffic command and help carry a film. I would say that one person who saw the realist version Jessica Meyer. When Clinton producers she was sort of my ongoing confidante where when I was insecure or was you know had two unites of no sleep and I gotta do a monologue or whatever? She was kind of the person who would come by. And we have these private sidebar chats and she'd like build me up to feel like I could you keep going because there were times it was really scary. You know well I mean yeah I mean talent wise. There's no question I think from these earlier roles that you are immensely talented. But you'd never even been asked you know they're never been in an opportunity to have this central substantial leading Rollin. Any film let alone so the first time. It's a Clint Eastwood Film. That's got A. Did you feel a lot of pressure. And it's a good film different too. If like Blunt House calls you up and they're like we want you to do the genuine casey bio pic. And you're like great. I have to do these deplorable things for no money and try to win a word for playing this odious on redemptive piece of garbage. This is much different. You're playing an American hero in this shades of gray story right with Billy Rain Clint Eastwood I mean that is the best version of how how it could have happened to me literally. Yeah especially at a moment when you were in danger of being typecast as a villain totally you. Now get to play a a true hero era. Yeah it was. It was cool and there's still some consistencies of lower status or what people what people interpret to be simple mindedness in a lot of my characters I but But you know I think I played with enough layering in truth that that people will hopefully see through that and think it's more than just what meets c-i-s but But yeah no a lot of my favorite actors Paul. Giamati Phil Hoffman. John C reilly. They started in these sort of character supporting roles you know. I remember John C. N. A. Johnson Gilbert Grape. Remember Paul Giamati having like four lines in my best friends wedding you know like I was totally like new. My track Iraq. I knew my lane and was waiting for the time to come back to do something bigger like that. So one thing that you know. It's it's just I gotta ask because it's it's amazing to just read about it these three most recent high-profile parts have sort of sent. Aren't you on a roller coaster of what was expected of you in terms of the weight of the character. The physicality all of that. Can you just share what that takes in terms. Just maybe even if you've talked about some figures it's just it's it's not the easiest thing to just throw on thirty five or lose this or whatever it is. Can you just take me through from I Tanya to Black Klansman Richard Jewel. Yeah it's awkward men. It's a very emotional. I mean I can talk about very easily But I mean it's emotional in the sense that I've been overweight my whole life all my heroes started dying John Candies and Chris Farley's and then even dramatically we Chris Penn James Gandolfini. These guys have health problems and I love the Jona Hill lost weight. He looks amazing now and I'm glad that he's going to be around for a long time because we need them. I'm to be so this. Losing weight became a priority for me in twenty sixteen. I joined a group called Orange theory fitness and it wasn't colty. The people were like all in the industry. And they're all nice and they all like we're building me up and helping me stay by contract and I loved it and I lost thirty five pounds while putting on muscle in anyone. The done this knows like losing weight while putting on muscle is like a whole delicate thing so that took about seven months and I think I got from like think I think I went from like two ninety down to like two fifty five now and right around. The time I was doing the pilot got the I Tanya Auditions November of two thousand. Sixteen and I I ended up you know when I looked at I looked at photos and video footage of Shawn Eckardt and by the way. Nobody the pressure me to gain weight. No one to their test. But I said if I'm going to really do this I gotta do this because this character doesn't feel good about himself deep down. I need to not so I put. I put the thirty thirty of the pounds back on played. Sean sought the moment I rap. I'll take some of the money from the movie and get a personal trainer. Whenever never really we happened and it took about another year and a half to two years to kind of get it off and then of course while I was filming for Spike in Thailand? I got back down to like to sixty sixty two and I'm like well. I'm seven pounds away from where I was with. Orange theory fitness. Only come and make it and then I booked Richard Jewel in one of the first thing. Clint says is better. You GotTa pick up the DONUTS. Kidding have serious and I knew he was right and of course I shot back from to sixty two like two eighty five or something to play Richard So I put on another twenty five for that and now I'm still still trying to take off. You know I'm still. I'm probably down. Maybe seven pounds from Richard Jewel. When I might be at like two seventy eight but like I don't want to? I want to be healthy and be around for a while so I can do some of these characters and you know if if if I find the Jay Roach or somebody's making Chris Farley bio-pic. I'm taking that role knowing. That's mine from birth. Yeah that's mine but outside of something like that I really don't want to be that heavy the rest of my life. Yeah I mean I. It's amazing thing to have the ability ability to you know to go down the way you did for you know to to get down to two sixty two again or whatever anyway. I don't I don't mean to heart by Shit it's a IT'S A. It's an amazing thing but just a couple last things working with Clinton you know I I understand he. Everyone that's ever worked with him says he he moves was fast. He kind of knows what he wants. Generally few takes yet. I've heard from from people on this project and stuff you said there. There wasn't wasn't that much didn't feel rushed and there was actually time for Improv. Yeah he I mean he than any director of ever worked with. He invites improvisation conversation. As if it's as sacred as the text because he trusts his actors. I happen to be a pretty proficient. Improvisation Donna my whole life. So I showed showed up and and an average thing would be you know he shoots the rehearsal. Let's take one then. The real takes take two. And then you know Steve Camping. Elliot's this camera operator. You've been lingerie would tell you that was great but I think we can get it just slightly better with the pan or the you know it was always something technical. So we do about three takes Average was shooting the rehearsal which rarely worked. I would imagine but there were scenes like the diner scene at the end right demanded I was like I need more of these. I need like nine of these in. You had to break down each one. Yeah and I didn't do it perfectly in each one you know like there's a reason we did nine. Clint claims that the money used with meeting the donut. He claims that was the first take. But I don't know if that's revisionist history here. I'd have to ask Joel Cox but But you know I told them a couple of times and I said it very seriously because I I knew I was the lead of a Warner brothers movie. That was a true story with Clinton it's like I can't f this up I can't I need you guys to give me some latitude. On how many takes I have so that. I make sure that we're getting it because I've never done this before to that. Degree was the a scene in the diner the toughest or was there. I mean you have some. There's the one where you realize in the interrogation that they're screwing with you shore or the taped supposedly. Psa and then you realize they're screwing with you. Which one did you find to be the toughest the toughest was for? Sure when when Sam says to me you know you gotta stick up for yourself else. You know they're making funny. When I kick the coffee table and I go? I know that and I walk away and I kinda pay. Some grabbed a cookie the cookie jar. That scene was so tough because I didn't know no I was kind of lost that day and I didn't know where we were totally and I thought as are we going to big with this. Does it feel authentic. Is it too much. Should we do an abbreviated version of this. We kind of did every every possible version. Which is good for you editor? But bad for the actor because he actors going to. I know what I'm doing but I remember clearly grabbing Steve Camp. Nellie the camera up and saying I'm GONNA break that cookie jar so I sat on. We don't have more. We only have one so I said on the last take make sure are you till down and get me ramming the lid out of anger so that was like I was glad the way it turned out but the day we shot it. I was ready to walk offset that was so steamed in an insecure. Last question is just this movie people once out in the world people. Everyone has an opinion. Everyone one has something to say and there are certain things that obviously are always beyond anyone's control. Whatever how many people go what they do at the box? But if there's one thing that everyone is agreed on about this movie it's that you are terrific and that is reflected in the reviews. It's the cinema score from people people who've gone to see it and most recently. It's the National Board of Review Award for best breakthrough performance. So I just wonder you know ten years after after showing up in the town to be going through this week where. I can't drive from my office to my home without seeing you two. Where three times on billboards and bus though?.

"The Gate I kind of go. I'm not going to get this. They're gonNA give it to Josh Gad or Jonah Hill so I auditioned and it's it's definitely Catechal I walk in. I see child actors. UCB instructors like. I see every type of person. I'm like them not doing right now. You can tell I was thirteen pages off book. Memorize the crap out of. Did they expect that of viewer. You went over and above. No well I think they expected some version of that professionalism but I definitely I drilled the hell. Yeah yeah hey the night before I got a little stoned and was like I'm GonNa Chill out because I want to so bad I need to chill And the next day there was just sort of a residual calmness where I was like. I was resigned. I didn't I was like I'm not going to get it so go in had a lot of fun did the thing. It's very professional left. They call me back a day later in our like. We're we're bringing back for a callback ago. Okay we'll call back insinuates. There's going to be another guy or something who who else is up for it. They are the callback is just you. Wow I get the hell. Do you mean the callback. All back is just me. That's not a thing like do I have it or don't I think there's an offer out I go. Whoa what is it? Gad they go. It's Josh and I think he was dealing with. I think it was dealing with like scheduling conflicts with the Kenneth Branagh movie or frozen or something around these busy. You guys are so i. I was sort of just waiting to see what happened. Of course he was too busy in. They went with me. And let's just remind people this Eckhart who's sort of the buffoon with delusions of grander. Who was turned on me? Yeah right exactly and this is a guy who who was in real life. Basically Szekely the mastermind. If that's I don't know if you can really use that word of the attack on Kerrigan but tell me about your reaction in the moment when you got that part where set set the scene. How big was that I've been waiting about three weeks after the call back. I knew they liked me. I found out later. The room was Kinda split where like a half a half of the team internally was was hoping to get a more of a naming the other half was like this is the guy. We don't need a name so I was headed to a concert with my buddy Josh Hoover. This guy who was on a walking dead and Hong Catch Fire Josh. Our headed to a concert for a buddy and I was I was waiting. Lina get picked up by Josh. And I get a call and in the calls saying you book the Part Desert Rats Yeah. My RUPP's called the schedules aid. Atkin Brian Walsh. They they call me. They're like got you paid. We're taking carry you. We got a decent hotel. You got the part. It's GonNa be a movie that people actually see you know the human this big speech and everybody was happy happy and I hung up and fell to my knees and cried and prayed and thank God for what had happened. Now Walk downstairs on the total mess. My Buddy JR asked drives up in a convertible at the top opt downplaying. The music of our buddy guy. Spend the rocket. Summer is blaring music. And he's like what happened. You know thinking something bad right and I go. I got the part and he knew about it because he he made a self tape for the same for the same part so like. We're both celebrating wearing this ban the rocket summer while we drive to the concert with the with the top down the convertible notable it was a very memorable. That's Great Memorable Day so that movie. I remember being the world's Marrin Toronto and it came in Rat's head Oh yes absolutely. It was quite a thing because I just to remind you know again. A lot can change in just a few years but at that a time. There weren't that many people that were thinking of Margot Robbie as world-class actress. They knew no she was a beautiful person who had a nice job very charismatic. But but she killed it and so did you and sorted Allison Janney who ends up with an Oscar and just this whole thing was and it was. I think the the the movie that had come into the festival without distribution that then was like the hottest acquisition title got a big deal with neon split flip between Neon and thirty. Yes yes yes what was cool and I love that internal team. You know if you ever get to interview some of those guys Steven Rogers and Craig and Brian Uncles and Margot's husband Tom. They were so freaking smart with how they played that they knew they had something special. They working upon enough to just anybody people like Harvey wanted it. And then he they made them go to the premier and he's like you know like a little Gremlin wanting the movie for himself and then I heard he walked out like thirty thirty minutes. And here's like falling asleep and then like stood up and abruptly left the theatre fluid. Thank God for us right. The timing was right but no I. I'm so proud of that movie and stretch me as an actor and I made friends for life and Sebastian and Margot and the whole team and then of course Craig just reused me for Disney movie The crew unless it's twenty twenty one. I think I read. It's ways off lot at Lod special effects and stuff to to kind of tie down before they put that up and so so must have been around maybe directly as a result of the exposure and appreciation from Tanya that Spike Lee enters. The picture will spike. Didn't even see I Tanya when he cast cast really knew nothing about it. I come back from tiff on a Sunday was flying back and I get an email. That says your agent. Brian Walsh Walsh has bombarded like all these casting type people in all these Agent people basically he whipped together like a pdf of just like all the praise from coming out of tiff. Yes just made a little packet and send it off to a bunch of agents at the agency and then casting people and they like within twenty four hours. They got me an audition for the lead batty and Black Klansman which was played by my buddy. I didn't end up playing that role but I went in on so I fly back on a Sunday on Tuesday. I'm sitting in the room of Spike Lee at Kim Coleman's casting office and once against him word I Tanya like I grow the hell out of it drilled. It knew exactly what I was doing doing. Had a bunch of Improv planned. which isn't really purist? Improv I planned it and written and I went in there and did my thing and spike bike I remember spike was like getting into it. I could see him on the seat when I was doing like the racist speech. I've got 'cause I gotTA stop you so you're playing a KKK guy auditioning as a KKK guy in front of Spike Lee. Even though yeah it's it's what he's asked you to do. That's got to be a little uncomfortable. I mean it isn't it. Isn't he co road. This guy's already signed off on the threes office. Plenty character I get in there and I had this like extra part of the speech planned. The the guy who played a key Yasser pocket and was brilliant. And it's hard to imagine anyone else playing it but I was like really going for it and at the end. I'm like do I do this. Improv I wrote to I do it and I can tell you is in a good mood so Mike Myskina throat and at the end I gave this whole Spiel Rago gentlemen. The the good book says that the tongue is a sword. But we don't use shortage anymore. No we use a guns and bullets. Why what was that little thing that that fell a Goliath but a little itty bitty thing going at a great speed dunked him on the head? That sounds like to me. I did that. SPIKE SPIKE JUMPS UP and goes. Say you can a busloads motherfuckers heads in and I go. We're going whoa paint the town red. It's just not going to be allred and I said that in spite those sit down I sit on almost angry. He's so happy that he says he found the Guy So he he we start talking movies. He writes my cell number down which had never happened ever and I walked out. He Bro Hugs Win. Lina I walk out and I told God the second I walked is gotta go. If I don't get this part I'M GONNA lose because it has to happen and of course Yasser got the role. But then they're like do you want you know spike sidekick right and in a way you know yeah I guess it all it all worked out nicely because you a great as as the sky and also to make it further crazy the movies produced by Jordan. Peele you enjoy so you've been in. You're in some canned peel sketches right. Yeah I go way back with Jordan Keegan so Joel Zadek USA manage Me and a bunch of these mad. TV guys is he still does some of them. I think but you know when mad. TV got cancelled that was going to a small Christian School in Chicago. Writing screenplays like a madman like a college the university park over forests and and jogos bad. TV just got canceled. Do you WanNa like write a script for Acre Jordan Keegan so they gave me a log liner. I one sheet of an idea and I spent a year and a half reading movie for Peel. That around made it was called. Hardly working it was about like black men trying to fight to get a promotion Russian in this advertising company and you know it was funny but if the story was never fully there I think I was too stunted at that time to write a great relationship with them. And then you know more. So Jordan tonight kicked around a sci-fi idea called the last ship Jordan arrogant right the sci-fi thing and I went to his apartment a couple times and we like brainstorms somewhere on a laptop somewhere. I have like notes from me and Jordan trying to you know while a little stoned trying trying to come up with like comedy notes but it never. They blew up like a rocket ship and they threw me in a couple of sketches. And I did see Jordan at the Gotham awards awards and he pulled me aside a couple years ago and he goes just so you know. This wasn't nepotism because I didn't even know you audition and you didn't text me to like ask for for like help. That sounds like I just looked at the cashier one day and bugged down my office because I was like Holy Shit calls the move. That's awesome well and I Tanya should have gotten a best picture nomination Black Klansman dead and then I guess after doing that you were doing some awesome stuff for T.. TV pilot and we should say you've done you. You know over the. I guess in between various things you've been in some major shows kingdom unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The Cobra Kai other other things. What I read was that you're in Thailand doing the next Spike Lee project five bloods and have an an offer for a major TV project right? Yeah it was Kinda crazy. There was I had an offer for a TV show limited series and it was the most money money anyone ever offered me. It was actually more than I deserved to be perfectly honest. It was weird that they were making this offer and it was a lot of money and I was excited. Sided about it and two days later I got a call in Clinton wants you to Clinton wants you to be a co lead in his new movie. I was like why and they're like well. It's not a real offer. It's a verbal offer because the movies at Fox Disney bought Fox and clint only worked at Warner Brothers. So I'm like I have three days. They're making me mole. This this stupid thing over were there like you can either make a ton of money or you can take his word. Even though you've never met. Were they pushing you in one direction or the other not at all my reps a testament to them they were like do what you WanNa do. We have our opinions and we'll give them if you want them and I just told them I it's I'm losing sleep. I was also sober at the time. I did ten months sober so while Thailand go nuts and I'm sober and I'm alone and I'm like barely sleeping. I have insomnia. It's three in the morning. They call me because of the time difference and they're like you have to make a decision the casting needs to know the point where the TV manager like. Dude you gotta give us an answer. You know we're going elsewhere and I said Oh my go- the Bible talks about fear and love. You can only operate out of one. The two can't abide you know. Perfect love casts out. Fear and I said fear would tell me to take the money love with tell me to work with these pass. Wow and then I had to sit for three weeks. Having made that decision waiting to see if the movie happened happened and I gotTa `bacterial infection on the last week I'm like Puke in between scenes. I ended up going to the hospital for dehydration and stuff.

"That conversation. Paul thank you so much for coming in great to see. See you as always and Congratulations this has been a big month week. Just probably a blur for you It's been wild Scott. It's been wild. Thank you for for having me I. Yeah no it's been. It's been like a fun year for me in a funnier for movies and just as a movie Fan. It's been crazy keeping up with everything. There's so much I still have to see from Corpus. CHRISTI TO UNCUT GEMS TOO. You know there's just so many different interesting projects and then the big event movies all fall. Oh on like the same month so it's been nutty men in phone. Well let's go back because you know on the one hand I think people feel like they know oh you because in the last three consecutive years you have been a key part of the award season high quality films. We had I Tanya in twenty seventeen when we had black Klansman in two thousand eighteen. And we now have Richard Jewel in two thousand nineteen. But I think they know your face. They don't know your story so let's let's go back. I guess it starts in Michigan Skin with a pretty faith. centric family right you. You're like one of the first in generations to not be a minister right right yeah. My Dad is is a fifth generation Lutheran pastor the crazy stories that I guess is my dad's like great great great grandfather. Something was is a rabbi and he left Czechoslovakia to convert people to Judaism in America while staying with a host family. Here where you know. You're crashing for free like a foreign exchange soon. He got converted to Christianity so it changed the course of the family literally. Although it's just it's just believing in one more book we still also got the Old Testament but yeah. My brother is now six generation pastor. The women in my family are over the top incredible. Stay at home moms and this is just something I always wanted to do. I always you know I took the people like Robin Williams and Jim Carey and I always gotTa give credit to Jim Varney. Who did those ernest movies that those are like really important to me as a kid and the instagram videos? I now do where. I'll be shirtless waking up in bed at my apartment. Silverlake doing a Weirdo character. Erica totally spiritual traces back to watching Jim Varney earnest talking to the camera and stuff. Well I just got a free amazing performance coming up the elevator later with you every floor you want to give a little summary. I love elevators because people are stuck with each other which should happen more often to this country so divided divided. It's great so like I love saying Awkward Chit and elevators. Make people feel weird. I think floor one that we were going. I think I said something like it's dead quiet and I go so anyways as I was saying about my divorce. The door open for the next four. I was like anyways so they got the culture test. Back the lesion. They don't know the origin of that. They know. It's a lesion then the next floor up I was like anyway brandon my steps and his real dad's in the military so show and tell becomes difficult. There are things you can't bring into the school and they get worried by hilarious people and it's just great looking at People's reactions but I love it by the way people are weirder than you think they appreciate stuff like that well. The vessel is getting on this floor. Would you say to the the. There's a guy that says I know you from somewhere. You sweet black in the quarter look to me he goes. I know you from somewhere you and Youtube and I go. I am on Youtube but I actually living and then of course I brought up I go. I played a racist piece of shit and black eyed. It was close well so I guess the willingness to be this kind of open. I've read you say that it kind of probably comes from the fact that you're one of four. It's hard to get noticed in that circumstance. Of course you're fighting for stage time but were you you a theater kid. Were you doing this stuff in school or when did it really become something you took seriously. I was like a theater. Kid didn't hang out at the theater. Kids I I loved. I loved acting. I love film I think around the age of twelve. I saw a few good men and as good as it gets like those movies were sort of what formed formed me from loving comedy to wanting to discover drama and discover good writings. So I kind of feel like I didn't know at the time but those two movies were written written by James L. Brooks and Aaron Sorkin two of the greatest screen writers of our time. If if maybe if any so like I didn't know what the age of twelve but what writing was what was really grabbing me too so by the time I was sixteen. I bought all these screenwriting books from Barnes and noble like the one type stuff reading for Dummies and I was doing theater. I did ten plays in high school. I started doing. Stand up comedy at like my church and that like local cafes or bars or whatever as a teenager so I I sorta just overly immersed myself it was Improv. STANDUP screenwriting plays submitting headshots and resumes. All over the place in the Mid West trying in a fund agent and doing some background extra work. I was a background actor in one or two things early on anything that was major. No no one movie. Was this terrible. Indie film called demoted with Sean. Astin and Michael Vartan but it was a treat to be on set and I was getting paid like one hundred bucks a day day and and you know I got to say this is before selfie stuff so it was like it was nice to just chat with Michael and Shawn and some of the people who are very generous with their time. Talking to the extras and stuff and I remember. Michael Vartan got us an ice cream truck like it was just. It was a lot of fun and and and then of course my first job was this movie. Virginia which didn't do very well. But I got to work on my first film. I worked with Jennifer Connelly and Ed Harrison. Amy Madigan A and B Jones and Emma Robertson. Harrison this is Dustin Lance black coming off of milk right. Yeah he was coming off milk so there was also like the perception of light. This movie is going to be nominated for. Yes because we got Dustin me Jennifer right but the film really really kind at died in and didn't have much of a showing it Kinda bummed me beyond Brooklyn heart a little bit because I thought it was going to be this big thing and it wasn't but at the same time it gave me like nine or ten grand or something. Yeah and I got to move to La and when people ask me what I had done was coming off a movie with Jennifer Connell. You in fact you know. I think it speaks. Maybe two that you're are an open and an end sort of immediately. Likable guy that you were not supposed to have anything more than what would have been another like background part in that movie right and then added. How did that change? I just showed up to be. I was content with being an extra to some degree. You know. Obviously I wanted speaking part but I didn't think that was likely but I'd seen Lanson. You know my my mom Kinda got us to start watching the Oscars when I was a teenager like early teens It was a traditional watch it. Every time it was on with the family and I had watched the Oscars that year and Lance Black this beautiful speech that was really powering and he talked to gay youth and said you know. God doesn't hate you and as a Christian and loves the the LGBTQ plus community. I was so happy that someone said that. You know 'cause I don't want to be labeled as some Westboro Westboro baptist nuts I. I was pretty happy to hear that I just told them I want. I saw that the audition for the extras and I just said Hey. Man congrats grads on the Oscar. Milk was amazing. And I love that part in your speech when he said that it brought tears Just want to say congrats shake his hand. Thirty forty seconds. Yeah and he goes knows. What's your name? And he wrote it down and he said there might be a part for you. We're going to bring you back and a week later. Sure enough. I did a cattle call. Twelve other guys who looked as poorly you put together as I did and And then I came back. Oh and then. I thought this I haven't told them stories. I thought it was all done. 'cause I was I was reading. The trades trades that as early as in reading all veterans. Yeah I was reading deadline and variety Hollywood Puerto everyday and I went online and saw the cast amy Madigan Muravich and it said filming is underway so I interpreted that as auditioned. I never heard back. They started filming. They started Caz right right. So I was like I'll bummer. And then like a day or two later when I'm fully emotionally resigned. Having the part again email that says can you come back tomorrow where it was shooting shooting on the west side of the state near grand rapids. Call Okay so way you didn't have to lay. It was like a three hour drive from Saginaw so like six hours roundtrip. My Buddy Peter Hinze and I went down. He drove me. I would like throw him some money and he'd drive me because I still don't have a driver's license. I'm one of those Weirdos where does but I went and did the audition as we left. I thanked them and I walked out and the PA comes up to me and she goes. Hey stick around We need some more information from you. And I'm thinking like oh I didn't shall out the paper right that they gave me some weight. And taking those asked for my address social security or some random thing and lance black comes out to three minutes later goes so you got the part and I go. Can I hug you. And he goes. Yeah and they had me fill out paperwork and this was more of much more substantial part. Oh Yeah I was number six on the call she and I was there for you. Know ten days over the course of like three weeks and and they were excited because they were like we discovered you we got there was some pride there. That's all and and onset. I just did what I always do. I haven't changed my recipe that much. I'm a better actor now but I basically just I did some techniques and a lot of improvisation and and it went really well and I'm so proud of the work in that movie. I'll be you know. KINDA got snuffed. Yes so as you say with the proceeds from that endeavour you come out west and if the math is correct. It's almost exactly ten years ago. Right right November nine. I read so could you ever have imagined how much stuff could happen in ten years here. Man Let's start there. I mean I only did did this because I thought I could do what I'm doing now. I believe that from day one. Did I think it would happen now. No I thought ten years from now I might get a sideways tight movie. That's barbecue instead of wine. And you know me and me and Chris Pine. You're driving through the Carolinas together. SEE figures out his love life and stuff my face I brought to you by the way we can still have made it for me that that can't get bottom told me that will get destroyed roadside attractions. Now I know no I basically I thought this would happen. I didn't what happened now. I didn't know I will get to work with a bunch of my hero. Sam Rockwell occupational hero for me the same way that Phil Hoffner Peterson Garden. Michael Shannon and I know this is not just lip service because going back and reading the first interviews that were done with you namedrop drop you namedrop San Mateo among other. So that's that's really cool. That's happened but I guess the first big moment would have been you were in Vancouver or something doing a lifetime pilot lifetime. Okay and what's the call that you get there so once again the recurring theme for me internally is like I was content with what I was doing until something way better just showed up right so I was with Eric. Balfour Dominic Monaghan. I and my Buddy Jake Robinson Chelsea Gilgen all these people it was like it was like adult summer camp where we all were in Vancouver for three weeks filming. Were all sharing this ensemble. So none of us are lifting that heavy or working out together. We're getting dinner together. We're making each other breakfast and drinking to get like it is adult summer camp camp were getting paid to go to. It was the greatest. So I'm just I'm on cloud nine already. I get an email that says you know i. Tanya script on the blacklist Allison Janney Margot Robbie attached roll the guy the guy did lars and the real girl so like it seemed a little too good to be true right out..

‘Richard Jewell’ and Olivia Wilde’s Offensive Portrayal of the Late Journalist Kathy Scruggs
"Brian on your podcast with David Shoemaker. The press box talked a lot about the controversies around Richard Jewel. Let's unpack some of those quickly before we start getting into the nitty gritty of the film Maybe you can help us understand specifically what role. A person named Kathy scruggs plays in this. Yeah she plays a problematic role. I think we should say she was a big figure. In in the coverage of Richard Jewel. She was a co byline on the very first story in this movie she is kind of a suggestion of a character. More than character. Actor probably The big news of courses that they in the movie they suggest or I guess more than just right she sleeps with an FBI agent. Yes after he gives her a tip yes that they are investigating Richard Jewell. Yes it literally say. She does not literally say I will now sleep with you because you have given me this information But that happens in rapid succession in the span of thirty seconds. It's kind of like the trump Ukraine call. Oh it's a quid. Pro Quo don't have to say it. We know what happened. It was a perfect bout of sex for information as trump might say and Olivia Wilde. And I think you're talking about the delivery. Wild has suggested that she was a relationship with this. FBI This is. This is again some reporting that none of us were aware of before this. That's not what's Woodson the movie the movie is high. Sure Gimme some information and I will do you a favor and then the FBI agent played by. Jon Hamm mm says Oh so we are doing this. which would suggest that they were not doing this before the exchange of information? Yeah Yeah So. This controversy has swallowed the movie up in a lot of ways and I did not think that was going to be the case. And over the course of the run up to the release of the Movie Warner Brothers released a statement sort of defying the Atlanta Journal. Constitution's rebuttal of the movie. They were very proactive. In identifying the fact that this is a movie and there is some fictionalization traumatisation happening here. I wanted to talk to you guys especially about what happens when a movie takes liberties like this is generally speaking. For Art's sake. I think we should always be doing doing this. There's the movie should always be stretching and redefining and re imagining and re contextualising these stories to tell better stories that it's not the job of movies to make good journalists. It's the job of journalists to make good journalists but this seems to be a situation where cleese would obviously the director and and grandfather grandfather of this film. hasn't very specific points of view about authority in the media and there is an expectation that he brought a lot of those ideas. Do Do you think that the movie suffered greatly because of this conversation or or is this just something that we talk about on podcast. Because we're all in the media. Dave Weigel political writer had a great tweet where he said all this controversy convinced fenced liberals that they didn't WanNa see Richard Jewel but the controversy wasn't big enough to convince conservatives that they could own the lips by seeing Richard Jewel. So it Kinda put Richard Jewel in this weird have state I'm with you. I'm all for historical fiction and broad license to do it. The exception I would make is in a case like like this because you could have just picked a random person but you picked a real life reporter who's not famous and you're telling the world the one thing you should know about this woman other than that. She broke the story. Initially but Richard Jewel being under investigation by the FBI. She slept with somebody to get the information. So I think if you're going to do that and then take the additional step as wild suggested that this is based in reality this isn't billy ray writing the screenplay allow. Let's make something up you owe it to show your work in some way whether it's an op-ed whether it's an interview or something because this is beyond this is not famous people. Having a conversation in the White House is a real person sue. This is a a very pernicious and well-established trope in movies about female journalists female journalists in movies are always sleeping with the sources which you know I should just go on record in case you you are not as involved in the media as we are. That's not what happens in real life. We're not all sleep with our sources just so you know. That's not allowed. But when I saw this movie. It was a couple days before the the kerfuffle started and I was so shocked. I thought that either I assumed assumed that. This journalist Kathy scruggs portrayed in the movie was not a real person and then when i Google that it was she was I was like okay. Either there is. She wrote a memoir where she literally said. This happened and I did this. And this is how I got the story in my involvement or else she's dead and friends it's option B because otherwise I was like how do you get away away from this with from a liable perspective. It's so blatant. And so and it stands out and the other thing is just it really it. It undermines the movie. I don't understand why you have to do this. Because this is a movie about how the media was responsible will in in and ruining rituals life which is like. That's fact right that is that definitely happened But to put in this seemingly fictionalized or unsubstantiated and like gross comment on a female journalists in the movie undermines all the legitimate if if tricky cases that Clint Eastwood and movie wants to make about the media's role in American politics in life I completely agree with this man was trapped in his home mm-hmm with his mom for eight days while people everyone in America thought he was a terrorist who had set a bomb and blown up people and it wasn't a case of some of these cases of guilt or innocence. Where it's Oh? He was a little bit involved but he wasn't no he was completely innocent. And Somehow you've done this and taking him him he's no longer the sympathetic figure and the journalists who was part of a team with the JC that made mistakes in covering him. And we're not skeptical enough of the government's evidence evidence and case you've turned them into the into the sympathetic figures. I just don't get it at all. It's a bit of a confounding thing I think a lot of journalists are struggling with the movie for the exact reason you mentioned. Amanda which is that I. I think it's actually quite a strong film in one of Clint's best movies and last fifteen years and it's been completely cast aside and a lot of ways not the Clinton needs another successful movie had plenty in his career but it's a movie that metastasized as a lot of ideas that he's fascinated by kind of like libertarianism in the pursuit sort of like a single man's pursuit of success in the face of a lot of people working against him the Atlanta Journal Constitution response to this though. I think has been a little little bit curious. The long piece that they that they published a sort of profile. Kathy's life I think in some ways was very helpful in terms of saving her reputation specifically early about these kinds of allegations but also revealed a person who obviously had a lot of struggles in her life. Who who did some things that are I think just on the page people will look at me like Oh? Maybe she didn't do that but she was that it's Actually like I thought hyper generated new conversation around her life and around the movie Brian. What did you think about? The idea of trying to memorialize is her in. Defend her in the pages of the paper like that. Well I thought one is I think you just want to give her an identity. You know she is she's been. She's not really much character as I said in this movie. Clint Eastwood doesn't really care about the media in this movie. Other than as there's this noise in this thing that's happening Richard. You didn't care about the way that story got written was very interesting actually is a bunch of editors editors and writers kind of putting that together imperfectly as often. Journalism is so they were trying to give her an identity. I think we've Kinda gone now over the falls where we've corrected is using this horrible. Oh stereotype that got into this movie and now we're kind of excusing. What the paper did and all the media did and saying? Oh Her story. I saw held up. No they didn't one guy was innocent and two there were actual mistakes in the peace even in the first piece in the paper together which so. It's totally understandable. Hannibal that the paper wants to do this. But to me at some point it becomes okay. You're giving us one identity. You're telling us the real story behind your life and then there's this conversation about what the media did to Richard Jewell. which is it's actually kind of separate one thing? That's a little lost in the conversation around this. I want to get your perspective on an Amanda is when you're making something let's say you're making a podcast or you're working on a story story or you're making media company every day you're collaborating people. And you're interrogating all of the choices they're making on a regular basis. You have questions about things. The Livia Wild Defense of the character is one of those things where you think that at some point you might ask a question. You might not just presume and I guess that's questioning maybe the integrity of what Olivia while saying the defensive. Her character but movies take a long time even even one day Clinton movies take a long time to make. There's a long time in the making so how. How did how was not not everyone on the same page with this? What am I going to say? Movies do take a long time to make but relatively this was like a very quick movie At least in the filming like this was filmed over the summer of two thousand nineteen and it's December and now we're watching it so that's pretty wild and and it does really seem like Olivia Wilde. Got wanted to takes and it's like go okay. This is the performance going with which is it's it's a caricature I think. It's pretty generous and cruel version of a reporter which is fascinating because Libya while the daughter of journalists so i. I wouldn't say that this is a portrayal of empathy eighty and understanding at least from what I've seen Granted you only get to take her to but she the material is not there on also. Her interpretation of the material is pretty pretty intense but it definitely seems like it wasn't examined at the time and it certainly seems like no one anticipated this and no one got on the same page about their talking points because Libya has been all over the map. And I'm you know what I'm not sympathetic. With the fact that she's answering search for somme choices. I like this movie directed by Clint Eastwood. It's written by Billy Ray.

websites that masquerade as news outlets Rachel levy reporter at the Wall Street journal did an in depth look at how this works and what it costs Rachel explained can I thinking how this works is even higher education firm actively scrub what's available which easily find out all about you online predominately on Google which is you know the the world's top search engine where possible go to look up things so one of the tactics that he used in by putting in a positive watering information on on websites that are designed to look like new balance but are not new knowledge another tactic is to edit wikipedia pages about a company or about maybe a PO and favorable way and in in the case of this recording that I did I was looking at a company called status labs and I spoke with former employees of the company they told me that this company was at times editing the pages purport clients without disclosing its role which is something that wikipedia doesn't allow you even referenced that Google was fooled in some cases when it through things up right in searches like as it began a purported news sites that really warrant for example some of the website diet petered out of that plan describe themselves as new states or appeared like new site we're going to look like new facing the they would have they would one was called chronicle of the week for example and several of the sites appeared on Google news when I called Google asking about it they decided to take the take off of Google news you had a lot of things so when you made phone calls about that ultimately came to hold more or website that disappeared as part of your story suit you profiled in your piece this hedge fund guy named Jacob Gottlieb explained the kind of his scenario and why he use status labs to improve his reputation online so I ran a hedge fund and comedian asset management at one point we manage that eight billion dollars which is significant and and and the space in two years ago his second class in the scandal he was not accused of wrongdoing but if you Google his name he would find articles about his topic manager who died by suicide after he was indicted for insider trading his former brother in law who with employee owned his find I was convicted of securities fraud so the things that you might find when you go what his name last year he was considering considering launching a hedge fund everything money again and he hired which is an online reputation management company so take it from there so he hires status labs status led to sensually using together positive news stories that would include him or his name or his reputation and they're designed to show up in Google searches right well back back a little we know that well I know from my reporting is that which god says that he hired Scott labs and afterward my understanding is that he with interviewed by them and was told that that that you know they were in a meeting about it interesting plans and he would get caught the pass coverage he paid between somewhere between four to five grand per month for the services and afterwards articles about him at the end and web sites that are designed to look like independent news outlets are not be with Rachel levy reporter at the Wall Street journal she's got a wild piece entitled how the one percent scrubs its image online talk about

appears about him is written from some by some medical group apparently you call it and it rings to some pizza joint in Toronto hi yes so the website where this article appeared recalled medical daily

"The trailers for Richard Jewell issue go check it out this is the story of the Olympic Park bombing and how it is that the FBI the media everybody painted on the security guard who found the bomber thirty minutes Richard Jewell is an innocent man is a hero there is a bomb in centennial park you have thirty minutes or more times a lot report the facts you ruin this means there is a bomb in centennial park you have thirty minutes he goes on to explain how it is in this case it is all Walker Paul Walter Hauser who plays Richard Jewell and what's interesting is this is a Clint Eastwood film I guess originally Leonardo di Caprio was tasked with what was going to direct this and be in the movie are they fell away Clint Eastwood took it over and decided to do this the tagline is the world will know his name and the truth about the nineteen ninety six Atlanta Olympics bombing here's the thing when I said I wanted to talk about this today those two guys and there were like who's Richard Jewell which I guess like what year were you born a ninety one and Nick ninety two okay sorry no no don't apologize well I I couldn't get it together before then that's fine I I had not heard of his story until I saw the trailer and now I and fastening credibly fascinated yeah okay so Richard to the story of this is that he was a former cop working security for Olympic Park and he spotted a pipe bomb underneath the bench and started escorting people out of their the bomb went off when just about everybody else had left the immediate area but cops were coming in and checking it out two people were killed a hundred people more than a hundred people were wounded but they had zero leads on this thing he was never arrested he was never charged but everybody assumed that he was the guy now there's other aspects of the story like the reporter for the Atlanta journal constitution who was accused of having sex with an F. B. I. agent to learn the name of their main suspect and that's Richard Jewell least according to the FBI agent that's played by John Hammond this movie he became a suspect of speculation he became the suspect of ridicule he moved back in with his mom played by Kathy Bates in his mid thirties because he was demoted he crashed his police car he sued several news outlets for defamation I don't remember if he soon Jay Leno or not but Jay Leno made it made a joke about him instead of calling in the unibomber he called in the unit to fess it's interesting to me because they're so few people who remember the fact that Richard Jewell was not the Olympic Park bomber he was not even arrested never charged in that case they did catch a guy if your member Eric Rudolph Eric Rudolph has been sentenced to life in prison actually he was sentenced to death but it was that Eric Rudolph was known for abortion clinic bombings not the Olympic Park bombing he was sentenced to life without parole sorry bout that but he was arrested in two thousand three seven years after the Olympic Park bombing anyway I'm this can be a fantastic moving against Clint Eastwood movie with Sam Rockwell and Kathy Bates and John Hammel of the wild and Paul Walter Hauser plays Richard Jewell in this article in east what if that helps at all man it looks like Richard Jewell sued a bunch of institutions and publications not specific people so not Jaylen no did actually sued NBC we did yes that's but now we know why all right we come back swamp watch into some of the impeachment inquiry hearings that are going on and a little bit about that debate sorry only Melungeon during channel will continue.
