"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. Kyle Rittenhouse is in custody in Lake County, Illinois. Tomorrow's court hearing there will focus on whether he can be extradited to Wisconsin. For

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 task and yet you had women your Oscar movie misery where I'm looking at you and I could still hear any wilkes saying he didn't get out out of the car. I didn't do that. And yet it to me in terms of the Stephen King when you did Dolores Claiborne like four or five years later. That was just as good time. Now Tony Gilroy adapted tapped novella that Steven wrote and which we I wished the film had gotten more attention that year but I think people go watch it now. Yeah go watch it now after we finish. It's a great cast Christopher plummer and Jennifer. Jason Leigh and Taylor Hacker did an amazing job and talk about lead time. That's what I'm saying. He understands what actors need and because I had to play a woman in different points of her life I had amazing makeup and hair and dialogue and all of that so I had all the tools at my disposal. And that's why I wish people would see it because I'm very proud of that but there's so much I mean it's an incredible career. I remember seeing you for the first time on. stage vanities that Oh you did did. I was four years old but I loved it. Great thanks it was great. So how are you feeling now about your life and career. I'm feeling well. I was sick with breast cancer in two thousand twelve.
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.

"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.
"richard jewell" Discussed on Awards Chatter
"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. But also she knows what she's doing. She read the

He even offers help to the FBI and their search for evidence to charge him. They took all the tupperware. What would they need with my tupperware bomber? Use a cup of where to hold all the nails had standard. What does that have to do with you and they took my babysitting tapes?

Eastwood's film is prompting angry media reactions actions for offering a largely accurate portrayal of the injustice perpetrated against Richard Jewell and that's telling. The movies focused stays tightly on the year. Nineteen nineteen ninety-six. It never even alludes to anything relating to current politics snide comments about a throwaway bit of dialogue using the phrase quid pro quo quo are frankly ridiculous. Lawyers use that phrase long before the current impeachment saga and even Eastwood doesn't make movies that fast if there are parallels today and well there are. That's not Eastwood's fault. It's the fault of the media and the officials creating the parallels eastwood uses. Real footage of newsman. Tom Brokaw blithely asserting. The feds probably have the goods on the accused bomber faced with such glaring bias from from such a big megaphone. Where does an average guy like Richard Goto get his reputation back?

Please tell US please. Tale World Mr President. Please clear Muss may the daily Beast Calls Richard Jewel quote. Maga-.

"Meanwhile the Olympic Games came to a close close with many exciting moments to look back on. You might remember a few of those like when Canada's Donovan Bailey. Won The gold in the men's one hundred meter track event event and set a new world record with a time of nine point. Eight four seconds Donovan. Then went on to lead team Canada to a first place. Finish in the men's four by one hundred relay. Or how about when you ask gymnast. Kerri strug helped her team win gold when she completed a volts by landing perfectly on an injured ankle she even managed to salute the judges before collapsing to the ground at the closing ceremonies. IOC President Juan Antonio Tonio Samaranch called the Atlanta Games the most exceptional instead of his traditional best ever and in his speech. He denounced the Centennial Olympic. The park bombing stating that terrorism cannot stop. The Olympic Spirit Samaranch then asked for a moment of silence to remember the victims of the bombing as for jewel. Well he was on the second week of his ordeal and the FBI was starting to have doubts about whether he was the person they should be focused based on some media outlets also started asking questions. Bill Rankin a reporter from the AJC. The same newspaper that started ordered the media frenzy was the first to wonder about the timing of the nine one. One call remember that call was placed just before one. Am right around the time. That jewel found the backpack and reported it to a police officer. How could you have been at the park and two blocks away at the phone booth at the same time? Jewel's lawyer Watson. Bryant brought in help including civil litigator Lynnwood who was known as a pit bull doc as public perception turned in jules favor would make the decision to go on the offensive four weeks after he was identified as a suspect. Jewel was living in limbo a prisoner in his own apartment. The dozens of reporters surrounded the building. Twenty four hours a day with one media outlet going as far as renting the apartment across the hall and yet no charges had been laid. So jewell's lawyers set up a news conference for Bobby to plead her son's case through tears ears she begged US President Clinton to help her by ending the nightmare. They were going through before completely breaking down she said if the FBI doesn't intend to charge my son. Please tell us. Please tell the world Mr President. Please clear my son's name next came sixty minutes interview. which was the leading news authority at the time in an episode that aired nearly two months after the bombing did you will came off in a favourable light like a man that had been wronged by an overzealous media? His lawyer Lin Wood told Mike Wallace that they would probably be suing the Atlanta Journal Constitution as well as NBC. For the remarks made by. Tom Brokaw would said everyone. One got what they wanted. The police and the media the problem was they threw an innocent man over the side in the process. While jewel's lawyer was using the media to turn public opinion around another lawyer. Working for the security guard was meeting with officials to hammer out. A resolution mm-hmm jewel would be re interviewed by the FBI with the promise that the government would publicly declare Jill's legal status within three weeks. This here's US attorney Alexander and so the agreement was that we decide. Actually I would decide if he's a along the yeah I whether he was a target of investigation or not so on October twenty six. I handed a letter to attorney Jack. Martin and the letter said You're at this time. You're not a target of the investigation. We appreciate it. Wa- peration his attorneys at the time. Were a little upset about that. Because it wasn't a clearance letter didn't say you were no longer suspect the fact that you can't say that until you all the Alexander says the FBI couldn't Outright announced that jewel was cleared but they hope the media would absolve Jill once they got the letter. And that's exactly what happened. In in the media and in the Court of public opinion it was declared that jewel was not responsible for the tragic events in Atlanta after the announcement jewel held an emotional news. Conference this is the first time I've ever asked you to turn your cameras on me for eighty eight days ace. I lived a nightmare for eighty eight days. My mother lived a nightmare too. And it's rush for the headline that the hero was the bomber. The media cared nothing for my feelings as a human being in the days that followed jewell's lawyers filed several lawsuits for for defamation. NBC settled for five hundred and ninety five thousand dollars CNN. Paid out two hundred thousand dollars to jewel and fifty thousand to his mum and Piedmont College where jewel previously worked as a campus cop settled for three hundred and twenty five thousand dollars however the Atlanta Journal Constitution Shen the paper that started it all dug in its heels and after a very lengthy legal battle the case against the ADC was dismissed in two thousand twelve. Also the court ruled that because the articles written by scruggs and Marts in their entirety were substantially true at the time they were published. Even though the investigator's suspicions were ultimately unfounded they cannot form the basis of a defamation action. The AJC was was not made to account for damage done to Jules reputation. You may be wondering at this point. If the actual bomber was ever caught yes he was finally arrested in two thousand and three but not before he conducted a reign of terror. Error in Atlanta and Birmingham Alabama after the Atlanta Olympics bombing. Eric Rudolph an anti government extremist also detonated bombs at two abortion clinics and a lesbian nightclub. One person was killed and twelve others were injured in those incidents following his fourth bombing at the abortion clinic in Birmingham Alabama Vigilant bystander saw a man walking away from the chaos and followed him back. Talk to his truck taking down his North Carolina license plate. Police were able to trace the vehicle back to Rudolf before they could make an arrest. Rudolph went into hiding in the dense woods of the Nantel Hall National Forest in Western North Carolina five months after his disappearance the FBI announced announced that Rudolf was also wanted in connection with this intangible park bombing as well as the other two attacks in Atlanta investigators were able to connect enact Rudolf to the bomb at the Olympics. After a man came forward to say he had sold Rudolph gunpowder at a gun show. It turned out to be the same gunpowder. Used in the pipe. Bomb at Centennial Park for five years the FBI scoured the forest with bloodhounds electronic motion detectors sectors and heat sensing helicopters. They set up listening posts with cameras and hired local scouts to trump through the woods with gritted maps. They added added Rudolf to their most wanted list. And put a million dollar price tag on his head. And that's when the bounty hunters came crashing into town determined to make a fortune off of finding Rudolph. He was finally captured though by a twenty one year old rookie cop who found him prowling behind a grocery store in the middle of the night. Rudolph pleaded guilty avoided trial and was sentenced to four consecutive life sentences plus one hundred twenty years. He has no chance for for parole at the time. He pleaded guilty. Rudolph blamed his behavior on the legalization of abortion. And on what he called aborignes sexual behavior in a rambling. Eleven page statement. He declared abortion is murder and when the regime in Washington legalized sanctioned sanctioned and legitimized this practice they forfeited their legitimacy and moral authority to govern Rudolph explained that by bombing the Olympics. He hoped to shame the United States for its actions. He stated his intent was to knock out Atlanta's power grid and shut down the Games. He never intended. I did to hurt innocent civilians.

"The FBI's concerns all started when they received a call from the president of Piedmont College? Ray Clear and he told agents that will working at the school. The security guard always wanted to be a hero the FBI spoke to other people at the College College who said that jewell was highly aggressive and badge heavy meaning. He was obsessed with being a cop. When agents dug into was record they discovered more trouble? Jewel had been charged with impersonating a police officer six years earlier in nineteen ninety when he was first hired as a deputy sheriff. He wasn't qualified to make arrests but he did so anyway. And he was charged after pleading guilty to a lesser charge. He was allowed to keep his job really. It was just another incident of jewel being overzealous rather than criminal but on paper it didn't look good to the FBI members of the Behavioral Science Unit were given videotape of jewel CNN interviews. We're asked to analyze them normally. CBS You when asked to develop a profile lays out the characteristics of the possible suspect but by that Monday two days after the bomb went off a report came back and according to Kent Alexander. It directly pointed a finger at jewel as the Centennial Park. Bomber it practically indicted him him and they basically put out a four page single space report. That was those instructions on how to interview ridicule and all but it was the bomber. And that's how it was read at the FBI in Atlanta at the time so yes it was unusual. The idea that a law enforcement officer might invent a situation to look like a hero wasn't something entirely new it had happened once before at the end of the nineteen eighty four Los Angeles Olympics. A local police officer discovered ticking improvised explosive device. Or an I.. I D- in the wheel. Well of a bus carrying Turkish athletes to the airport. The officer was declared a hero but then later he confessed fast to planting the device. Meanwhile in Atlanta the media presence for the Olympics was huge every outlet was scrambling for our new information in the bombing story. Ninety six such an interesting year in media. CNN is already up and running but nineteen ninety six is the year ear that MSNBC Starts Fox News Channel starts up the Wall Street Journal The New York Times and a bunch of other publications go online and so the first time so it is the year and hastened news just accelerate incredibly. There was one media outlet that was especially desperate to own the the story the hometown paper the Atlanta Journal Constitution. They have three hundred and twenty-five people dedicated to covering the Olympics. A small a group of reporters from the paper was assigned to cover the security beat including longtime copper reporter Kathy scruggs she died in two thousand thousand one but people who knew her describe an old school reporter with flair. She had extraordinary drive. And the ability to work. Sources is like no one else which sometimes men drinking with them out a bar. According to the book. The suspect scruggs wasn't into big thing increases. Her style was best described as be fast. Be First on Monday. Two days after the bomb scruggs connected with a source I within the Atlanta Police Department. who asked her if she was aware that the FBI was looking at Richard Jewel as a suspect the source had had nothing else? So scruggs started calling around. She got in touch with another more reliable law enforcement source she had known for years. They met at a bar at a back table to talk off the record. The source told scruggs that jewel fit the profile of the lone bomber. The hero zero bomber a frustrated white male former police officer or military officer a wannabe cop who wants to be a hero. The catch was the source told her she couldn't run the story yet. It would ruin the investigation. She tentatively agreed but warned her source that if she got independent cooperation her paper would run with it the next day three days after the bomb went off and as has the. US Women's softball team won the inaugural gold medal. SCRUGGS got the break. She was looking for cooperation for her story. Another another COP at the Atlanta Police Department told her that the FBI was looking at the security guard. He said everyone was talking about it. Well that was enough enough for scruggs along with her reporting partner Ron Martz scruggs typed up the story that would run in a special edition of the Atlanta Journal Constitution later that day. Hey the headline read. FBI suspects hero. Guard may have planted bomb. The story that scruggs and Martz wrote stated needed that jewel was the focus of the federal investigation into the bombing and that he fit the profile of the lone bomber former. US Attorney Kent Alexander Zander says the impact was massive. And I can tell you when the story broke and not just the JC but when other media picks it up CNN. Tom Brokaw The New York. Post others. There was fist-pounding around the table among supervisors the Atlanta because it completely changed the course. Investigation excretion every major paper in the United States except the New York Times picked up the story and ran with it. The idea that Richard Jewel was not NAUTA hero. But a possible bomber spread around the world. You could easily make an argument. Says this is the first big. Social Media Story even increased social media era. You know they were news. Organizations all over the world who were doing what essentially the equivalent of re tweets and shares and Often without any new information just essentially turning the novel and that was very dangerous and Atlanta into as soon as the story broke hordes of reporters and cameramen rushed to the apartment complex. Where jewell lived with his mother? Bobby they didn't know he was the FBI's prime suspect until jewel received a phone call from his boss. Alerting him to what was going on a couple of hours later there was a knock on the door to FBI agents had arrived to take jewel in for questioning jewel. Ask the agents. If they were there to arrest him they said no he asked if he was a suspect. They said he was a key witness and they just wanted to talk to him about what happened at the park. This assist when things get very weird. The agents told jewel. They wanted him to come to the station so they could tape the interview for a training video that that would be used for other first responders any apprehension that jewel had disappeared. He was more than happy to assist with something thing that would benefit law enforcement but it was a trick. There was no training video Back at the station. The two agents started off by questioning jewel about his job. History family background basic stuff. They didn't read him his Miranda Rights Rights. Because they didn't want to tip them off that he was a suspect. You probably know what Miranda rights are from watching TV you have the right to remain silent the right to an attorney et Cetera et Cetera. If these rights are not administered. There is the chance that anything. A suspect says could be thrown out by a judge in Washington while the interview was taking place the head of the FBI. Louie Freeh got word about what was happening and he decided to pull the plug. He called down to Atlanta an issued a direct order interrupt the interview and tell the agents to read jewel his rights as as soon as they did the security guard clued into what was going on. Everything stopped jewel called called an old friend who was an Atlanta real estate lawyer Watson Bryant Junior. He asked the agents if they were planning to arrest jewel and when they said no Bryant Bryant told them that it was the end of the interview his soon to be client would be going home. You might be surprised to learn that tactics like the fake vache. Training video are actually pretty normal for the FBI. Here's former us. Attorney Kent Alexander. I'm not saying the right decision by I any stretch but just it's important for people understand. It's just ruses are used over time. The real issue with this particular interview more than a ruse was how how they issue the Miranda warnings. That's part of the rules that I think in fact I know gave. All sorts of people heartburn so inside and outside the FBI over for the days that followed jewels interview. The media had a field day with the security guards reputation. They were ruthless. They depicted him as a hopeless donny. A fat failed sheriff's deputy with a forrest Gump personality. NBC News Anchor. Tom Brokaw shockingly went out on a limb and set of jewel. They probably have enough to arrest him right now. Probably enough to prosecute him. Even Jay Leno joked about jewel schule in his opening monologue. He said he seems to fit the typical misfit profile cop wannabe low self esteem and added that he had a scary scary resemblance to. Sean ECKERD. The Guy who whacked figure Skater Nancy Kerrigan and the need two years earlier Atlanta Assistant. Da Nancy Z.. Grace who was not yet a TV star went on Good Morning. America and all but said jewel was guilty and a newspaper editorial compared him to the the Atlanta serial child killer Wayne Williams despite being tried and convicted in the media the FBI couldn't make an arrest they had no forensic evidence tying jewell to the bomb and it wasn't for a lack of trying thirty agents with bomb. Dogs searched jewell's apartment for ten hours. They took away boxes and boxes of items belonging to both jewel and his elderly mother. The F. B. I. also obtained Warrant forcing jewel to submit DNA evidence from it. They found absolutely nothing linking jewel to the bombing. Not a single oh piece of forensic evidence..

"And the next day jewel was at home when he got word that CNN wanted to interview him about his heroic actions on the night of the bombing. He was reluctant. Didn't he knew appearing on TV would make him extremely nervous. But Jules boss talked him into it so around eight o'clock that night he mustered mustered up the courage and he went to the CNN center across from where the bomb had gone off. He downplayed his role as a hero in the three minute interview that was broadcast broadcast. Live to the world's adding he didn't really think of himself when the bomb went off because he was too distracted by the bodies of law enforcement officers he saw flying through the air according to the book. The suspect jewel wasn't aware that his interview would play on repeat through the night. The twenty four hour news cycle was still fairly new. But that's exactly what happened and by the next morning every media outlet wanted a piece of Richard Jewel the next forty eight hours were a whirlwind of appearances and interviews. He did two more live interviews on CNN and one on NBC's Today Show with Katie couric. where she asked you if he felt like a hero he spoke to reporters from several newspapers and even got a call from a literary agent asking if he was interested in writing a book but behind the scenes the FBI was starting to have doubts about Richard Jewel as the brave and quiet man who helped avert a greater tragedy.

"As concert goers danced about a dozen officers formed formed a human shield and pushed people back they were trying to expand the perimeter around the bench and the backpack Richard Jewel joined them after running into the tower to warn everyone about the threat officers. Were having a hard time clearing the area. According to Alexander and Sounes book a lot of people had been drinking and they were too busy watching the concert to heed the warning by police then at one twenty am as law on forcement contemplated a full evacuation the homemade pipe. Bomb spiked with nails and screws exploded. The explosion was deafening the ground around and nearby buildings shook. The flash was fiery orange smoke billowed into the sky and the smell of gunpowder was everywhere. Nails and screws rain down on the crowd. The metal bits slice through clothing and flesh of scores of spectators. When the dust settled from the bomb bodies were scattered everywhere screaming and moaning filled build the air one hundred eleven people had been injured including two dozen police officers and forty four year old Alice? Hawthorne was debt her body riddled with shrapnel. Hawthorne had been at the park with her fourteen year old daughter who was among those injured in the blast a forty year old Turkish camerman also died that night. He suffered a heart attack. While running to cover the the explosion as the sun rose in Atlanta Olympic officials announced to the world. The Games would go on just as they did in. Nineteen seventy two when Palestinian terrorists killed eleven Israelis at the Munich Games. US President President Clinton offered words of encouragement to a nation shaken. By what had happened. We will take every necessary step to protect the athletes. Send those who are attending the Games but we must not let these attacks. Stop us from going forward. We cannot let terror win. That is not the American way the Olympics will continue. The Games will go on. The Olympic spirit will prevail. We must be firm in this. We cannot be intimidated by acts of Sir. Olympic flags flew at half staff at each game site as jittery athletes and subdued fans observed. A moment of silence centennial. Park was closed as police investigated the crime scene but all other events went ahead as scheduled. Surprisingly attendance was only slightly affected. Ninety percent of ticket holder showed up to take in sports like track and field diving beach volleyball and baseball all. Meanwhile it was all hands on deck for the FBI and other law enforcement agencies as they gathered evidence and investigated numerous leads. They call them the agency's Behavioral Science Unit. You know like the guys on minehunter hunter and had them start working a profile for the possible bomber. Here's former us. Attorney Kent Alexander Pressure on Law Enforcement Enforcement Bruce huge there were two million visitors in Atlanta fifteen thousand journalists Atlanta ten thousand place. It was the biggest event in the world so No you can't get more pressure than that because it's not that anyone had to say oh this is important you should look at it. It's the fact that everyone knew. There was a bomber on the loose in back kind of crowd in Atlanta during the Olympics in nineteen ninety-six the bombers could strike again at any point so it was more pressure than I ever seen in any criminal investigation indication I was prosecuted for eleven years during the early days of the investigation. The FBI made a troubling discovery. Right around the time. That jewel discovered the backpack and alerted the police officer a nine one. One call was placed from a pay phone outside a days in two blocks away from from the park. A male caller told the nine one one operator. There's a bomb in Centennial Park. You have thirty minutes then hung up. The FBI was frustrated to learn. The warning. Never made its way to anyone at the park. You see to send a police officer to investigate. The operator operator needed an address for the park which she didn't have she called around but it took thirteen minutes to finally get the address. Then then as officers tried to sort out who had jurisdiction over the park local or state police. The bomb exploded Richard Jewel was interviewed four times by agents about what he could remember before the explosion. They may have been surprised sized by the vivid detailed descriptions he gave even drawing for agents and extensive map of the explosion site but they didn't know jewel and how seriously variously he took his job for jewel.
