"This episode of spotless lists is brought to you by bourbon time so we've talked a lot about this on our shows but the loss of our commutes between in homeless passengers transformed kind of how we divide our days between being at work and we laughing at home. It's easy to feel burnt out. You know without a change of scenery as you move from work to home that used to be my time to recharge and wind down after a long day working on a sad just driving back and forth between appointments all day long so my friends. At maker's mark have solution for the exhaustion where all feeling beat the burn out and take back the hour of six to seven. Pm as your meat time right where you do. Whatever it is that makes you feel refreshed. Flag me. I like to make myself a little maker's mark cocktail it's yummy and smooth super creamy and silky. And that's what i do to treat myself and make a little time for me. You know a lot of the times. We can't switch off our brains on our own but a nice reminder. Is that little area that six to seven pm or you can just take that time for yourself. Poor little drink and relax and have that for yourself and treat yourself just to unwind and for me. It's maker's mark so this year we're kicking burnt out to the curb. Join me and reclaiming six to seven. Pm as the happiest hour so you can do whatever it is that makes you happy and if that involves the glass of bourbon remember to drink maker's mark responsibly maker's mark kentucky straight bourbon. Whiskey forty five percent alcohol by volume copyright twenty twenty one maker's mark distillery inc loretto kentucky. All right back to the show. Rob you're going to have to get these guys Maybe you can send some. Dvd's if all your work so we can All celebrate you even more and you're settle for a t shirt from soccer team. I mean let's get your hat. You can wear out on the course or out to to hide your face. I'm gonna get you some links to some stuff wills already weld. He doesn't mean sausage links. Yes got links to some some episodes of various things by the way. How good would that go down right now. Sausage link from wrexham. I will say that. Jason jason has seen something that i've done okay and that was because we were out on the we were we were. We were hanging out one time. And i said to him and this again i don't maybe i'm starting this by blowing smoke jason's ass but i am ready at the risk of sounding. Yes is is is on shard from the valley up and ready right now go ahead. I will say that. There's a generation of comedic actors or at least a acting style that is very modeled after a bateman kind of look on life. That stated I i would defer say it's modeled after your your co owner ryan reynolds. He would say the same about you and he did say the same about which is interesting. But i but i do notice. Sometimes myself if. I'm watching myself in the editing room. I'm like oh. I'm trying to do what jason bateman does. But i'm not doing it as well. And then and then so. I told jason about this and he was like oh. That sounds good. I'd like to see that. So i i. I clicked out some of it and i sent it to them and i said this is basically trying to do. I only recognized this. In retrospect and he wrote back things you know about his about your performance like this. He said this doesn't seem like me because of course it wouldn't him but he said it is really funny now but yet still very funny and by the way watch. Watch that right away. He watched that one real quick time. The clip was thirty. Five seconds long and the response was thirty. eight seconds. of course was that sounds. That sounds nevertheless. I was i was. I was legitimately flying against again at the risk of ruining your show with with sincerity. You're damn funny you can tell you can tell. Just playing golf with the fella. You guys are all from an older generation of course you. I grew up watching you. All your be your big influences on us now. What what where. Where are you in your incredibly busy year. You're you're arresting slightly. You're after The host press erica brag. Is the character you plan on. the The amazon mystic. You're about to start directing Never cloudy in jersey. Is it on the.

Great is the second hearing anybody. I love the question. The second season's coming out okay. So that was another one. I don't need the fucking confusion. He has resting confusion face looking at his anger but it's really swirling brow. The episode is of the season is going to be airing Well this week. That doesn't make any sense. Yes we are. We are in the middle of You've you've you've directed a bunch of those and you did not but you'd like two or three in the first season and a couple of this season is that right. That's right you like you like that part of it. Would you like the directing more than the acting i love. I love the putting the pieces together if something difficult and it's just it's just a new challenge. I mean don't get me wrong. I love showing up and saying and just saying words while cameras pointed at me and then just wrapping and going home and taking none of it home with you. Yes that's fun. That's very fun. But i also do. I just love the whole film. Making process i i love. I love being asked a million questions a day. I think that's really going to be involved in any of the Creative decisions on the on the dock for the For the soccer team no so. I actively decided against that. I wanted to make sure. Because i also just felt like it would be unfair to the documentary. Joint seem seeming massive. Atari honestly that i. I wanted to somewhat objective. I want the doctor documentary to be objective. So we hired the documentarian that made chefs table. They made cheer they made last chance. You oh that i love yeah and basically said good luck show me. Show me a cut. If there's something like egregious where. I truly look douchebag. I will be honest. It'll be hard for me. Not to at least give them a without be compelling television however i wanna i wanna stay objective documentary subjective. So i'm going to stay out of it as much as.

"Support. I'm serious. I wish that i had ordered dessert as well. That's not just rob. How do you agree with that. Assessment of wills that. It's okay to eat in front of friends like that. I suppose so. I mean it. It's it's the thing. I've laughed the most about over the course of the of the podcast as far so i believe that i. I suppose it's good. It's good for forbids. all right. good forbids robyn. Thank you for being here. This has been just wonderful. That's it no. I don't think we're done you gonna. I also do want to know. I do want to know because you with with the foot football right. We don't say southern football football team and you seem to really light up when you're talking about all that business side. Where are you as far as passion with the the the art of the craft of acting or do you see yourself in the future more going that way. Oh oh i thought it was going for the passion of football which i actually would like to address for a second. Because i've heard mr net talk about his newfound passion for formula one racing. And i and i i'd like to say that like when i bring this up. A americans american on is obviously this is. Football is the biggest sport in the world and yet it doesn't have a passionate american fan base and there's a lot of different reasons to y. I've heard people sound like excuses to me in the same way that there's not a lot of passion for racing however is passion for nascar just not in our particular of hollywood bubble. That said i think once you are in beverly hills yes. I think that as we all know when you're exposed to something new which by the way is a common theme of this seems to be the theme of this particular episode when you're exposed to something new and you're open to it open to the possibilities and if it's if the story is told correctly then you realize that the thing itself the sport itself Is becomes irrelevant in this. In the same way that like who gives a shit about who can put a ball in a hoop or who can the story is. What's most important. Is you get invested in the club you get invested in the team you get invested in the human human beings who are behind. Who are on the pitch who court who are in the cars and that's what you're right the same thing with formula one once. I watched that series on netflix. And i got hooked into the story of these guys but shots your other question about like what am i. Am i pushing in that direction to get away from the the entertainment business side of or the acting side of it. No because as we all everybody on this podcast knows it. The acting is the easiest part and the funnest part for. I think it's some of you have an entrepreneurial spirit. Though you're you're you're enjoying sort of. I think it's great and now a word from our sponsor we are supported by cb md guy. Summer's just around the corner and things are starting to get closer to normal alleluia. Which means more and more people are getting out and getting active for the first time in a while in even though it might be amazing to feel this summer sun on your skin exercising after a long break and leave you wishing for another chance to stay inside for a month but don't worry about it because our good friends at cbd md.

"Viscera from the nave to the wilson ever really seen me angry will. I think you've seen me angry is. There's not i don't you can tell if i'm really pissed. Can't you know. I think rob's onto something here a really good point. I think that rob. I noted on the golf course you had to blow up hole and jason went kind of crazy for a second. No crazy means quiet. I think nine. We'll nasdaq. I'm getting older and the last cities leaving my my and my face browse just hanging over my eyeballs. A little bit. And i looked constantly peeved. Jewish you had because look at rob rob look so great. We went looking with that he just. He was just on the cover of men's health magazine which they must have lost my number. Because i did change numbers of well. I don't know anyway. The point is they went with rob month. Yeah he looks incredibly. No you get a lotta shit from your friends for it. But i heard the story about you. You yoyoing your weight yoyoing for this shooter. Something i look you do a show for fourteen years Coming up on fifteen. You've got to try and find new ways to get jason to watch. I'm waiting for you guys get a few episodes so i can really binge it. I'm going to send you a couple of things don't because i don't be nervous around you. I i like that where we have a comfortable relationship thing about. How rude is because because both u. n charlie sunny. He's friends with charlie to and he's done a couple of movies with charlie star still hasn't watched. Listen i've the few times. I've been a given the chance to direct. I hired people that. I've never seen active before by. Just get a sense. Yeah but i just. It doesn't matter to me like if you know you're right for the part you right for the part right near real loose current and you can't understand what you're saying it's all wait. Listen me i want to get to this. Because it's a great story. You shot a pilot with charlie and glenn howard for two hundred dollars. Is that shoe and was on your iphone. And the reason i think this is fascinating is because my sister tracy and wisconsin she gets approached a lot by some friends who have kids who always kinda wanna ask advice about how to break into. Show business right so intern. I get asked to answer that question on her behalf. As to what you accomplished which is pick up a camera your phone and just start fucking making shooting stuff and make sure it's great. Well does a good hang on before before. Rob andrew's at your sister tracy gets asked by people in the street how to break into show business. You have to stop the show. All the time to explain to her show biz. Talk asking her know. She has friends with kids who were like. Hey can you ask your brother. How what advice for them. And you're the perfect example with that is right which is like you took two hundred bucks and you shot a pilot. Is that true. It is but you asked if we shot it on an iphone. The show is so old that it is well before the iphones. Smartphones didn't even exist so this would have been two thousand four and best buy and i. I was working in a restaurant at the time. And i took out a credit card and i just bought a camera and then we just learned how to edit on our on our macbooks and and thankfully those but if listener the don't manage your expectations you guys are going into your fifteenth year on something you shot on a on a on a slow wednesday you went into a best. Buy a home video camera. Take my luck and shot at the at at the business. And i don't even want to start. You just bought a soccer team. Yes so you know. I i just god bless everybody with dreams and please pursue them but hold onto that restaurant job rob had when he shot it. Because that gives you that What is it will sexy indifference because he because he got a day job. you know. i don't believe. I don't believe that you wish everybody well. For where their dreams either. I wish them well. But i am the first one to say you know. There's something to be said for those. That don't need it and or or the those that don't you know people say well. You know the people that exceeded the people that they can't live without it the passion and i disagree. I think you have to have a little bit of indifference there. It's just like it's like high school radio going after the guy or the girl. If you kinda you know not playing hard to get by manipulating. But he kind of take it or leave it. It's very attractive so make sure there's something in your life that that keeps it Manager sounds like kinda great advice and also kind of terrible advice. Rob pilot you make the pilot for two hundred bucks. Go to best buy buy this thing you shoot. The pilot then went like how millions of people have shot. Shall we realized it wasn't good enough. So we shot it again then. We realized it wasn't good enough so we shouted again and we would just keep shooting it. Whenever people were available in our various apartments iterations of at one point. I had a different person playing the character that i wind up playing who then moved onto being a different character in the show and he didn't he wasn't able to reshoot it for the third time because his girlfriend was in town. It was like we were never thinking. We were making a tv show. We were just trying to make something fun and good and we just kept iterating because it wasn't good enough and then finally we thought it was good enough and then we thought well. This could be a tv show. But i thought if we're going to actually try and sell it. We should make a second one so that we can prove that a waiter can be a show runner. I think it was twenty five or twenty six at the time and so we wanted to make a second one to basically have this package that we could then take around town. And that's what we do and then did you. Did you walk it in or did you send it in. Or how did that work. no. I didn't trust people enough to send it in. I didn't think anybody would would go to to what actually watch it. So we went in. And i'll tell you this is how long ago was Even though dvd's did exist of course at the time they were When you burn them off of max they they. They just couldn't count on their own reliable so we had to transfer onto a vhs tape. So i had a vhs tape which we would take around over two days. I took it to. I dunno seven networks. We had offers from all of them except one fox fox fox just didn't get it fox. Big big fox's didn't get it at all they're all those people have long gone but you can name them your if you want to shame them. I definitely remember who they are. And that's just the part of the chip was we'll we'll cut it. I promise we promise a bet. You still got the tape right you. Must you still have the tape. Now you know they will degenerate really quickly. Those vhs tapes you have already we already transferred to digitally yes and now people are approaching us about nfc's now i understand what it is. I'm sure people of your generation do not young explained to me because he doesn't know what it is going to be listening but want you to address our our our carbon disaster. They're completely going to ruin this planet. So i i don't i won't buy nfc's well as i've had it explained to me over. The course of the last few weeks that is that is well. Look there's always gonna be people who who who who claim that. They are not destroying the environment the sake of commerce and maybe they quite possibly are however. Please explain to us. Oh it's going to be so boring and it's gonna be impossible to make it. Exciting non fungible token. Everybody knows okay. It's called a non fungible token and again i'm going to. I'm going to explain it as best. It was explained to me in the simplest terms. It is like you're explaining it to bateman natural. I always do like that so listener. What will.

"Of our culture our fellow humans. Yeah very very kind of you to sean. How does that fuck it. Feel to hear that. From rob of all i leave it sweet. We always say the power of comedy you can achieve so many things at the power of comedy and educate people without them knowing it you know because you bring them along and you bring them in but you know i remember the show donahue back in the seventies eighties right where he's like. Today we have on congress person this and we have a gay person on and that was that was the subject. There was a gay person on the. What's it like being what what a surprise that. We're all norm. We're all just like you. It's like newsflash. We're all human and we're all part of the human race. Nobody's funny. I would just thinking that like how how important first of all how amazing that must feel knowing that. You've helped whatever way you know. And it's never enough as you know it'll never be enough. They'll be critics. Who long late again. But you did this or you did that. Like fuck it who you know. You can't please everybody all the time. But the fact you're able to that robs able to say that and really mean that must feel amazing. The fact that i realized and asking you about your your upbringing that way that you have been friends for almost twenty years and we've never really talked about that but isn't that such a win. I guess so that we've never talked about it that it's normal. Yeah i guess and other people would say well. You're insensitive for not having asked. I never knew. Do you ever feel that way. No never ask why we're friends. Yeah yeah exactly. But that's because you guys are evolved educated and normal and all of those things and the other thing to bring it back really. Full circle is rob. I dunno if you sean until you know what he was out the allergist he's because he was allergic to less. Yeah no just a wrap that up. Thank you for saying that's very nice At the show is just bigger than all of us.

I want to say very loved seeing this exchanges to rep my own rep. I love it so much. I love sean. So much highlight guys. Just thank you. Well yeah day okay. And i i the sorry i say this to you guys all the time to be the unknown acceptance of a gay guy by straight men is a big deal because it's in. We grew up in our dna to believe that. Oh all straight guys have a problem with gay guys you know. And so and we're always walking around with the added layer of. Will they accept me for who i am instead of. You know anything else and of course we of course we still have to educate people. There's people that don't live in los angeles and new york where you just you know. There's lots of cultures happening all around everybody. So it's easier to accept but we have to do a lot of work still to make sure people know to see us as human rob.

"Sean. You said you brought up the fact that You know that you're catholic. And maybe that's why you're gain. I know you're being glib but we've never really talked about this before because rob you were just saying it was a tough time. I can't imagine how difficult that would be in hats off to you and your whole family and kind of railing around and understanding how important that was to kind of how difficult that must be in that time in in so sean we've never really talked about this. How typical was that growing up in your irish catholic existence outside of chicago in the similar. I imagine quite similar circumstances as an knowing probably knew you were gay from. Oh yeah five years old. Yeah and yeah no thanks for asking. Its yeah it was it was. It was weird. You know you go to church. Go to your raise irish catholic. It's like you just blindly go because that's where your mom and dad and family bring you and you learn all about do you go to. Ccd i don't know if you go to. Ccd classes about bible classes. And right do all of that and then you get older. And you realize oh. I can't talk about this. I because i'm told i'm bad and kentucky but a church certainly in rob. Were you guys religious rod. Did you have a difficult time with the church or your mom and your dad and all that s it was. It was just something that wasn't wasn't discussed but my father. We had a very close relationship with the church because my father was almost a priest in fact he was in his last year of seminary school when he met my mother. So there's a whole lot of real interesting stories wrapped up in religion sexuality and all this stuff so much so much guilt from what i understand from all my friends and people who are who are certainly see catholic. There's always talked about that. Catholic guilt thermodynamic for both. You guys very complicated feelings. Because you're raised in the church and then you're doing something that they don't approve of for both of you guys have. Did you feel that really in a real way and do you still feel that today. You know i have i have. I don't know about you robert. I have anger because of the hypocrisy because you have by the way with. Isn't that turn into religion. But you know growing up. It's all you hear from ads on tv and billboards in society and families and churches and everything that gays bad games bad and then you of course. Now we're in a much different place long way to go but that we're just as human as anybody else but i got angry at the catholic church because of the hypocrisy of thousands and thousands of children who were molested by catholic priests and we just kind of wall. We're not going to talk about that. We're going to try to bury that as much as possible. So here's all this evidence of pedophilia running amok and the catholic church and they're passing judgment on me for who. I love and telling me like how i should live my life. I don't know about that so like they sand shark tank for those reasons. I'm out and let me ask the the dumdum question. Because i am the dumdum In many areas definitely religion. I know we got the we got the quote. I know zero about religion and so on this issue. Is there something in. Probably a very quick and easy answer. I apologize but is there something in the bible that specifically says you must not be with somebody of the same sex or is it or is it sort of like this is sort of an agreed upon interpretation of some of the vagaries and it pushes it towards heterosexual. Yes and just like anything else. In the bible there's i it's a buffet where people can choose Which sections they want to believe in which they don't to further reinforce their own prejudices right so we see that all all day long with so many various different things Where people will just people are doing that with the constitution. Of course of course you just choose to interpret interpreted the way that that fits whatever sort of narrative. You're looking for right Really quick i i wanted to. I made it a glib joke about your mom and it just from one gay another gay joke about playing golf and all that so hopefully. She's okay with my mother could give to flying fox sure but that's that's having grown up in south philly utah. Budget is to me for making fun of me for playing golf. Do just in general to show you t to to demonstrate how difficult this is for people and again that's why i have endless compassion and empathy for certainly for my mother who was who was navigating this in the in the mid nineteen eighties but we we grew up essentially in the gay community at least half fifty percent of the time we were in the gay community and yet i have to gay brothers one of whom did not come out until he was in his twenty s wow fascinating because he still fell from from cultural and societal perspective that he would not. He just didn't feel comfortable even telling his own brother right. There's did he tell your mom earlier. Now know how growing up in a culture in the family where it was not only i in existence but it was it was embraced and it was and it was a well known. I don't know if comfortable. that's wow Did he explain why he still felt so kind of uncomfortable until twenty something to come out. He did and i mean. Look the to bring it back full circle and not to i. I know that this this show is not It's sort of anathema to be to be sincere. And yes the reasons here. That's fall to be careful about being sincere because you'll get hurt real. Well i'm gonna. I'm gonna i'm gonna i'm gonna shine the light in shawn's direction so what i said to sean in the in the doctor's office at dr. Ihs was that. I believe that will and grace not single handedly. But but was a massive massive part of a cultural revolution that obviously started in the sixties and seventies and stonewall which was the which was the the beginning of it. But i think like really changing hearts and minds which i know you've discussed Ad nauseam sean. But i i just want to bring it back to that for a second that show. Seminal seminal for so many people and as a straight white dude who spent his entire life around other straight white dudes to see how impactful that show was Was really changed people's lives. I mean it really did. And i think that there's not a. It's not a coincidence. That people like my brother and then my second brother who who's significantly younger than me. Fourteen years younger than me was never in the closet. So my youngest brother who's five four years younger than me didn't come until he was in his twenties and then my youngest brother was just always out and i think that shows that there was just a dramatic shifts in the late nineties early two thousands and it continues today and In in how accepted the st- the that this is a part.

"Seen it impressed by that. Rob i actually really was the only thing i can surmise from. That is still to your credit. I believe that this was all you've seen this in the lab show has been out for two years but i watched in the last two weeks because we you realize that we were going to be playing more golf together and you had to make sure that you were at least a little bit of homework which i appreciate that. It wasn't even that that sounds like something that's that move is called a bateman in showbiz. But what i did was Because since we've gotten to know each other and we had a little bit of contact before rob wrote a pilot that i thought was hilarious Many many years ago that was kind of came my way. At a certain point we there was a discussion about. Maybe i really wanted to get what happened. And maybe they ultimately didn't want me or something like that but passed passed. It was a soft pass. But here's the deal. I always thought it was really funny and it was. Oh and i thought it was. When i read that script. That's when i became a fan of yours. I'm can't wait for that question once. We started to get into each other and more recently than i did. Watch it not. Because i wanted to be but i also i was like i want to see what your deal is about that. Well look i. I appreciate it jason. Yes sorry jason with multiple. You did not stick with the show clearly me on the other hand if i were to start i know i would go down k hall of just lighter the google. Yeah i gotta eat up everything. He's and then. I then i'd get stuck in this in the philly in the sunny in philly and that would take fifteen years almost literally to watch his. I wouldn't be able to stop. I know what i'm dealing with you. So what i do is i keep myself in a safe. Little bubble of dodgers and msnbc. And i don. I know i know what you do. I don't come out for except for golf and to say hello to my lovely wife and children. that's it. Rob gino something. So you're shows on apple right. Mythic quest started is just starting names. Ian graham lebron's it's you dick and secondly which shows that you just google it and and got it wrong because the pronunciation is i n gag of the show. Yeah there's whole gang of the show. Here's the part you know what he he makes himself look. Even worse is that his own wife is a producer on a show. That's on apple. And he hasn't watched that. I watched the first five episodes and continue to get a lot of heat for not finish on that. There's a lot of content out there. Another guy that we play golf with his an ex baseball player named chase utley. And i can promise you that when when we play. Jason remembers every at bat that this fan over a twenty year period. I think he can. He can point to an at bat. That chase had in two thousand nine memorable fellow. Yeah hey rob you you mentioned in the email that you we ran a enter doctor's office once. How long ago was that and what would do well. The the reason. I know that you it was not memorable for you Because this was very early on in in sons run there was no chance he would have ever known who i was just introduced myself and said i was a big fan of yours. You knew that he didn't know you were because he tossed his keys before. Come back i recognize. I said in the waiting room. I said i recognize that. This is wholly inappropriate We were. This is full disclosure. I don't think you'll mind bring me a having me bring this up because i know you're very open with your medical history and whatnot but we're in we're in a I love talking about minimums. Here we go. i know you do. I saw you on jimmy kimmel. I'm a fan of yours. So and i know about your other podcasts. That you're talking about. Thank you dermatology. I it was no. It was an allergist. Oh yes dr isis dr isis. The name is dr isis is. He's he's the best allergist in the city of los angeles. And when i first moved to la. I had terrible allergies. And yeah and i am. Now i'm cured. What were your symptoms seasonal. So just be. It would be stuffy. Are you okay now with the stuffy nose and not island hypochondriac too right now okay all right i will say i will say i cured. I have been cured. I don't know if you continue to go to dr. Just but i do not have to go anymore now. Is this a kinda doctor where you lay on your back. And he puts like a bottle of some sort of like herb or something on your chest and he says. Raise your arm. I'm going to push down your arm and if your arm gives a lot of resistance that means you have a bad reaction to this type of herb guys. Been one of those. What noman nobody has. That guy was not a doctor and it was. It was that in a valley that was definitely somewhere in santa monica. I can almost promise way rob so you were this. I read a little bit about you. Having known you coming on and so you grew up catholic. I grew up. Catholic means one of us has to be gay. That's me and your mom is now okay. Lesbian she's out. I wanna talk about that. Because i think that's fascinating being a child growing up like did what was the. How old were you when she came out. Did you suspect when you were younger. That mom could lift heavier things than dad. Maybe and you now you can both off. Yes she does play golf which is based both her both both of my mother so they've been to. My mother left my father for her current partner. Who's been my other mother For the last thirty five years. I think they met wow already seven years ago. Yeah wow while they're they're still wonderfully happy and in fact even stranger of my father and his current wife are very great friends with them and they are on vacation together. Right now i love yes right now. They are in north carolina together. Run away and see i just. I'm now i'm just writing a pilot episode of a sitcom as i'm listening thinking boy this my two miles number my to dan can t walk us through the cold. Oh no so here. We go a slow fading. Now i did not know that rob yes. You don't ask any questions about me. Now i don did you. Did you hit an eight. I remember one time he said to you. He said He said is this down. Wind from here. Is this usually in trouble on. The left wants To you i remember that. No but i really do. I really want to know. Like what age did she come to you. And what was that like for you. Like oh and then. What was your experience like with your peers at school. Or did they know and all that. Kind of stuff yeah. No the interesting thing is that they never actually officially came out us. It was a it was a much different time. This is the phil south philadelphia in the early to mid nineteen eighty s and they had three kids and a very staunch irish catholic neighborhood right so it was a really difficult time for them but for us. I mean. Look any divorce Is going to be difficult on the kids. But i think it was a testament to both my father who was in his late twenty s at the time which is incredible and and both of my mothers who handled it with such dignity and grace and we never really felt any acrimony or animosity between them it was all like in support of us did recognize that mom had a roommate Which isn't weird at first. Because she's in her late twenties early thirties which of course at the time. When you're a kid. They seem like they're fifty. Right dies some family members that still call scott my roommate. Yes so mom. Yeah so mom. And mary Who's my mother. My mom's name is mary o. And this is going great roommates for for years years and years and years and nobody was really sitting down and having a conversation with us but as time went on it was becoming quite evident when we would ask at twelve thirteen years old. We recognize that your roommates but why do you sleep in the same bed for worm. Yeah for warmth is cold to save energy. it's not always sunny. South fellas called.

"I didn't start the show when Jerry met George and Elaine and there was a history right there right so sunny starts and we're already there. We're this bar that exists. So why should it end in a way where people go and now what? It's the end. No those people should exist somewhere at all times right so and I taught was talking to Larry David about this one time he said. Don't ever in your show ever never do a final episode. So you see what he's doing with. Curb takes couple years back and like you never know what's GonNa happen but you know for a fact that they'll never be like okay. This is the definitive end because I think it robs people of the experience of of why they love it. Which is that this in some fucked up. Alternate Universe is actually still happening. These actors are living and breathing. And it's kind of back to a weird way what you're talking about minecraft open world thing. We're like this world just exists and you feel a part of it in my craft their participants but here you're there's something comforting about knowing like that. Yeah yeah he's always out there getting into arguments exactly exactly and so. There's this weird human like innate desire to want closure because it's like it's like a control thing because we don't have it in our lives right and so we think we want it to end so it's going to feel satisfying but then not satisfied when it ends in. It's like I don't know I don't know how like really we WANNA get into. Maybe it's like fear of death or whatever it is but like control like with has to end so I can close that door in my head but then it's over in you don't you don't you. Don't get that satisfactory so I can't say for sure what we're going to do but I highly doubt there's ever going to be a definitive episode where you're like. Oh that's the end of the store shore. We haven't really gotten into and we've covered a lot but really scratched the surface like your film tastes my interest. You talking about the posters and stuff like you grew up with this kind of stuff the same way I did. I'm curious like in the wake of like discussion about minecraft at the outset. And also in this world where like the brothers ended up doing avengers. It's not inconceivable all to see like a marvel movie directed by Rob mcelhinney is it is. I mean having had that three year journey does that affect what the answer would have been five years ago or I mean? Give me your sense. Is there any interest in in jumping into a franchise that you loved as a kid love? Now now's a filmmaker. No Zero Zero did that change from Mike Graham. No well it actually changed. It changed a lot was with Chris and Phil. I watched Chris and they're not like great friends of mine but I know them. I know them a little bit. I truly respect and revere them and I remember when they when they signed on to do that. The Han Movie. I was like Whoa. That's GonNa be really cool like I can't wait to see that because that's gonNa feel like they should be doing that with the with the with with that world right which is like why does everyone have to feel exactly the same and. I'm sure they'll figure out a way to do their thing. And yet it'll still feel of the world and then. I kept hearing reports back like they're unhappy. The things aren't working things aren't working and I don't know for sure right but I know for sure what happened there right and like and again. I'm not even placing fault on anybody in there. Because you know Kevin Kennedy in that whole crew they have you know th they're in charge and they're running their thing but kristen very specific voice and you go. I'm sure that first meeting was you're GonNa let us do our thing. This is all you. Yes and then slowly but surely got the dailies back. Wait that doesn't feel like Star Wars. Exactly that's not star wars. And they're saying we'll we'll know it's not star Wars Star Wars George Lucas. You wanted us to do our thing and I would. I personally I would be. I would be afraid of doing that. And then I look at you know somebody like jj or or Ryan who? I think did an amazing job right. And so you're like I appreciate and love that. Great filmmakers want to go do those movies because I enjoy watching those movies but I think that they have somebody like Ryan is so talented and also just has the ability. He's such a sweet man to and probably has the ability to navigate those things and I. I don't have the filmmaking prowess I also don't have the temperament to so that's my verbose way of saying fuck that. I'm glad you're getting the sandbox to play in that got an fx at Apple mythic quests. How'd you guys dropping this time all know also all nine episodes? Yeah are going to drop on Friday and and I love that and they were very collaborative about that because some of the shows were coming out and they asked us they said. Hey what do you think and I said I think the show should come out all night. And here's the thing about TV. Where I'm at with. Tv's specifically half hour comedy. I am. I'm certainly not Steven Spielberg but I have the ability to do what I want. Right and again it's much lower stakes but I'm trusted because of a track record and I bring all my shows in on time and on budget I truly do because I respect the fact that these people are willing to invest millions of dollars in my thing and the only thing I ask is that they let me do what we do doesn't mean we don't take feedback. We do take feedback but when when apple did this and fx does this. Somebody's paying you millions of dollars. They have opinions. They should have opinions at the end of the day they would say. Hey we read the script. We don't like this and I would say okay. Let me take it back to the team. Softball team we come back. Say sorry guys we like this and they say okay but here's why we don't like it say okay. Let me take it back to the team. You talk about a little bit more and we come back and we say guys. We feel strongly that this is GonNa work and they'd say thank you very much for your listening listening and go make your show. What up with this evolved adult conversation. Shit whatever their look I think part of it is also. There were times when they said we feel really strongly about something and didn't go back to the team and I would say look. They feel very strongly about that. And we have to respect the relationship. I fear none of them and again. That's coming from place a privilege if they really are gonNA fuck up my show. I quit. I don't need I own my other one. We're good. I'm doing this because I love it right and so we want to make something great but I respect that they feel strongly about it and I don't think they're I think they're really great creative partners and so I'm like this is a gift. Even though we feel like we disagree. It doesn't change the show fundamentally it doesn't hurt us in any discernible way. We still feel like it's a a surface level adjustment. That's going to make them happy. And I think it's important to show respect to your partners and so we do it and so it really is reciprocal. Yeah and it's it's worked so far. It's definitely is honestly. The new series is great on some of these. Podcasts can feel like stretching stretching and stretching I feel like we scratched the surface today so for season. Two on back. We'll keep talking absolutely Greater Eaten Meat you today rob and again we should check out mythic quest Raven's banquet. Thank you very much for having me. I'm Yvonne Vio let me know. Let me hear it again. Mythic Quest Raven's bank is pretty good.

"Get it at that point in my life because anybody who's been a twenty five year old man right and now actually looking back on a with the lens of now a complete different experience which is twenty five white man right seriously at that time and you don't realize that you have this tremendous amount of privilege and it's only in the last five years seriously where you're now looking back on it and you're going. Oh Wow right like the innate sense of entitlement I had on and by the way just just as a diversion for real quick. I feel like there's a a great resistance to hearing privilege ripe for for from a certain portion the population. I will say this. I understand the resistance as well because I think when somebody I said to me well you have this privilege. My first response is fuck you. I had no idea nobody I knew nobody in New York and I moved here by myself. I didn't know anybody in the entertainment industry. I grew up poor. I had a great family. I had great schools but nobody gave me opportunities. I made them for myself right. And there is some truth to that however as you get a little older and you look back and if you have people with compassion who are not trying to make you feel bad but just trying to get you to understand what right and you look back and you go. Oh right but this happened and then this happened and then this happened. I was able to do this and then I was able to to do this. Just by function of of my birthright essentially autumn wine. You're a black woman with the idea for sunny. Fifteen years ago doesn't happen doesn't it doesn't happen and I absolutely recognize that but I will say that I also recognize the resistance to it and we have to. We have to be compassionate to recognize that. Everybody's struggling right and that and that hopefully in that struggle you're recognizing that you're not the only one struggling and some people are struggling even more and I heart as it was for me. It was impossible for other people. Okay so beyond that at twenty five. I had this your twenty five year old man. You're just like I can do anything I will do. I can do anything and then it's not so later. You look back and you're like Oh my God. I was woefully unprepared for any of that but my bravado like pushed me through right and I was also continuing to wait tables at the time so because they didn't pay enough money for me to quit when table so to direct the pilot I. They gave me off for two two weeks one week of prep one week to shoot it and then I went back to waiting tables because I didn't know if this was actually going to work. So there was a sense of humility that was also imbued upon me and and and so a lot of ways. It was a blessing that happens so young. I don't know if you're talked to death yet about The weight gain and weight loss at this point but as somebody that's always fascinated by this kind of stuff I have to at least touch on it. So was that also okay so again. A Reno's US but just to put out there you gain what's something like sixty pounds Later on you not only drop it all but then turn yourself into this like insane. A world class ballet sequence I guess my question is is that to test yourself. I mean part of it is I would imagine you're doing a show for five ten into fourteen fifteen years and you're just trying to like keep it fresh and entertain yourself but there has to be something also. This is a personal journey. This is a personal test on yourself as you kind of. Look back on those choices what you think. I don't know what do you think that's about? I you hit it right on the head. Which is that. We're always trying to stretch and do something different and again. This is coming from a place of incredible privilege that we've been doing it for so long that we now look at it. Not only okay. If we're GONNA keep doing it like why are we still doing it right right? And and ultimately we always say we will still do having fun if we still have something to say and the audience is still there and all of those. We just keep checking those boxes every year and part of the reason that it's still fun for us is also part of the reason. I believe that the audience so cup keeps coming back is that we're doing. We're trying to do different things. It still feels like the same show right. We're not destroy the foundation of what we built but that it feels fresh and new and then beyond that on a personal level that I also use the show as as an opportunity to do things that are just interesting to me And that's one of the great things by the way about like when people say you know like. Oh you're on TV or you're famous or whatever. What is that like? And I'm like truly being famous and the level of fame that that I have which is like you know lower on the lower scale of things right but I have the kind of the best version of fame right where I don't get stopped by Paparazzi. It's mostly just people coming up and saying how much they love the show and then you take some photographs on on people's phones and then beyond that a married right with kids so it's not like I'm out there partying and meeting people you know like I. It's very boring lifestyle. So what are the true advantages? The true advantages opportunity. You get to meet the most amazing people and do the most amazing things and you know historically The thing that fame unlocks is that people will say yes to you. More often than not right and traditionally people have taken advantage of that and we're seeing the repercussions of that people are saying. Yes and yes. And yes when they really don't mean yes but you have so much power and influence that they have to and so the the the virtuous or at least Optimistic way of taking advantage of that is that you have these opportunities to do really amazing things positive things and then also just to meet people. You've revered your life or wanted to work with or or fascinated by they'll take your call they'll meet with you right and those are the kinds of you. Have that right here. We're right here with the podcast is basically just a Boondoggle to let me meet. People Admire. Yeah absolutely right. And that's what I and so that so sunny just become an extension of that short right where I get to just. I thought it would be cool and fun and different to change my body like just treat my body as if it was like a nut like a piece of clay and I was going to like mold my body into something sure. You're going to be able to lose the weight when you gained it. Yes you just knowing yourself and talking to a physicians and just like knowing your own temperament that you had that discipline well. It wasn't even discipline too. I mean and I and I make sure that I I. I'm as honest about this as possible. Is that my metabolism is just very fast. That always has been. It's a genetic advantage that I my family has right and it depending on what you're looking to do. It's not always an advantage because if you are actually looking to see when I was a kid I was so skinny and so small and I would get the Shit. Kicked out of me. Like that was a very distinct disadvantage. I was a terrible athlete. 'cause I weighed one hundred ten pounds when I was a senior in high school right off but as I got older it presented a lot of advantages so and I recognize that not. Everybody has that so I knew when I gained it would be harder to gain then it would be to lose and to gain it. I was just consuming thousands and thousands and thousands of calories a day and then to lose it. I just stopped doing. Did Max coming out. Have the effect that you hoped it would did it broaden. The audience stood it. I mean you know you come from an interesting background in that your mom. It's well known. The family ended up coming out and starting a new life. I would imagine there's connections to that but I mean having that sensitivity the last thing you want is to do a story line like that and turn off the Lgbtq community something. That didn't happen now but no in fact I think it was. It was the opposite effect. I mean I think what what we weren't. I was personally not really aware of was how. How large a portion of our already viewing audience was was there already and Because we were always teasing the fact that was in the closet and and I remember we didn't I didn't realize the impact that maybe it was having on people until this is one of those cases where I listened to the audience of one of the season's Mac comes out of the closet and then at the very end goes back in right and we thought OK. If we want to keep that guy going I gotta go back in the closet and okay. That'd be funny well. People didn't find it funny. They were upset legitimately upset and not like screaming or yelling or fuck you or any of that. It was just like I think people were hurt and I didn't think that people are sunny for the reasons that it turns out that a lot of people were watching sunny and it wasn't one or two people it was thousands of people and I know that because I was getting hit up on twitter and instagram about it and I thought wow maybe we have a bigger responsibility to at least be a little bit more compassionate to the experiences of all of our viewers but specifically this particular subset that are watching the show for a very specific reason and it wasn't because and this this would be destroying the show if Matt came out and then all of a sudden became a completely different character. Write that we thought we don't want to do. And that would be way more offensive than what we wound up doing. Which is that Matt comes out of the Closet. Finally and is just as repugnant. And just as much of an asshole as he's ever been if not more now because he can. He can use that card whenever he wants. I'm telling you the response. We got back from the because there was some reticence. I remember people saying no like I don't know if this is the right way to go. Maybe we should adjust them a little bit but the overwhelming response from the audience of LBJ. Audience was yeah thank you. This is because we want representation. We don't want is from our applied. They want authenticity and nuance they. Don't caricatures exactly exactly showing a different side? And we were showing. That's exactly right. And so so there was one particular episode where the character came out and then and then the following season again. Just doing something different. And tonal shift. Now I just I learned how to do a four and a half minute. Contemporary Dance. A little ad. That's the yeah. No list of qualities on the resume going forward. So where are you at right now? So it sounds like you're you're writing season two. Yes sunny as far as we know is continuing for the foreseeable future until you guys collectively decide. That was good. Yeah I mean we just don't approach it I don't think. Tv shows are supposed to end. I really don't think there's an psych philosophy. When was the last time you heard somebody say? Wow like that. Was the best ending to that show. Maybe breaking bad right and and get even with breaking bad. I remember because hated the end of the Sopranos right but also thing about the sopranos was that you didn't quite know exactly it was it was up to you right and we're still talking by the end of the Sopranos Bread. I love breaking bad and it had to end the way that ended right. I don't hear anybody talking about the end of that show. I hear them talking about the show itself and how much they loved it and the rightfully so but it just feels so finite and TV series and again those are dramas but speaking of comedies like the greatest. Sitcom of all time from my perspective is Seinfeld and you know the final episode. Even though Larry wants to talk about how much he loves it which is fair. It's this show. I did not love it and part of the reason I didn't love. It was because they were ending show in in a way. That didn't feel like it was the show because they were right. They were trying to hit every character. But that didn't feel like an episode of the show but beyond that it was the end and I didn't want it to end. You started the show. I didn't start the show when Jerry met George and Elaine and there was a history right there right so sunny starts and we're already there. We're.

"Wow that's a that's a real really important and valuable lesson that when you're when you're working in this can happen at any point but with with with these kinds of numbers in this kind of scale one hundred and fifty million dollars which is what we were budgeted for. It can fall apart at any moment and so unless you either. A truly have the power and ability to not allow that to happen. Which like three? I've then then you just have to live in that mystery and so you really really truly better love the process and I did enjoy the process. But I didn't love it enough to do it again. I mean like as I'm sure you are extremely cognizant you have had in your cloud of had such a very unique strange experience in like what you guys did was sunny and it happened a few years before but but the South Park guys kind of like they created their own small thing and they were for whatever reason timing place etc were given insane autonomy and ever since then they kind of liked exist in their own universe. I mean fair to say that's what you guys have had the luxury of experience. Yes yes well. So what I found is that I certainly don't. I don't I don't have that level of autonomy and privilege in the movie world again. Very few people do so. I don't expect no winter. Spielberg exactly but I do have it in the television space and so I was like well. Okay so the minecraft thing was over and I was really bummed but mostly because I wanted to do it and it was just fun. It was really fun to live in that space but I thought well now I've got to see something through again and I remember it reminded me of of Sunny. Which was it was. It was people. Ask me all the time like. Oh you're just happened so fast for you and I'm like no it didn't. I'm twenty twenty five or twenty six when we started sunny. But I didn't go to college and I moved to New York and eighteen so from eighteen to twenty five twenty six. I was struggling. That's a long time and I was fortunate enough to to be in the mix going on dishes and knocking jobs not getting jobs knocking knocking jobs and I just got support roles like I need to see something through all the way through and the only way I know how to do that is by actually writing something actually shooting something learning how to cut it and then making it and I don't know if it's going to be a thing but it'll be done and so that's what we did and so then cut to fifteen twelve years thirteen years later and I'm like well I'm in the same weird spot where I just got the major disappointments and so the only thing I know how to do is just see something through and that's when we had this idea from Ithaca so does does the video game world influence. Is there any connection between minecraft and being in that gaming world and wanting to kind of delve into this video game developing workplace comedy? Interestingly enough we were approached by UBISOFT which is a big game companies in the world and they said hey we love sunny and we WANNA do a show set in the video game world. Are you interested and I said Fuck Now? I'm in and I meant it. I was like no I'm done. I just came out of that mine contract and they said well look. Will you just come to Montreal and visit our studio so I was never been to Montreal Free First Class trip to Montreal thinking? I would just drink my way through Canada for a while and have a good time and I got up there in eighteen and I had a ton of booze and Montreal's one of the most beautiful city so go to this game studio and I just had an incredible experience talking with these people and I just knew almost immediately that it was a great environment to to put a show and so much of that was because I spent a lot of time talking to these incredibly passionate intelligent creative driven people who all had a common love Yup which was games and making games and that was the only thing that they shared in common. And that's what makes for the best shows and doesn't hurt that it's like this backdrop that has kind of been unexploited for the most part and yet is a jillion dollar industry. The industry beyond movies beyond anything. Yes and like no one's been able to crack like generally speaking as we said in adapting games let alone behind the scenes kind of thing I mean he goes Silicon Valley and abstract kind of maybe ten gentle sort of way. Yeah it was actually even more than that. The things that I had seen in popular culture that we've all seen over the course of thirty last thirty years Really took a cynical tone up. He was like also like just the writing the community themselves and there was just always that stereotype of the nerdy kid. You know playing games in his basement or then you would just hear about this sort of toxic elements to the community that you know we're here. Cambridge and Whatnot. And and if you're not associated with the community those are the things that the headlines. Right and then you would you would think. Oh it's just like game Bros. or guys playing Sadden or or then it was the nerds dorks right that we're playing the world of warcraft. Or whatever and I thought. Oh that's just not true right. I mean. This is a massive massive. This is everybody on the planet. Now everybody on the planet and then I heard this stat and honestly this stat really really drove home for me and I remember talking to Charlie about it and I'm like this is why this is going to be so fun to write grand theft auto. The series of grand theft auto has made more money than star wars the franchise of Star Wars. Yeah and I was like no. I heard that I was like well. That's not right and I looked it up and sure enough. That's including merchandising. Grand theft auto has made more money. Yeah it has made more money than Pixar sold to Disney world right and so okay beyond the scale of it. Everybody knows who George Lucas's everybody knows who Steven Spielberg's could you name to anybody that were that worked on? Game ON GRAND THEFT AUTO. You don't know right. You better believe it drives those people and saying and rightfully sell Italy rightfully so I feel like everything you need to know about your character. Is that spelled in? But it's pronounced. Yes what do you enjoy about writing and performing the sky? Well it's kind of like Sonny right because people are like. Oh it's isn't it great that you're nothing like your character and I'm like well? I'm exactly like those characters. I mean the thing about sunny that works. I think the thing that works about any television series. I would say I'm sure it can extend into movies but the thing about TV's that you're doing it over and over and over and over again yeah so it's impossible to distance yourself completely from the character you're still human being that's playing it right and then the writer stuck to write to what you do best and what you do best still an extension of yourself. It's just the worst versions or the best versions. Whatever it might be like the heroes get to play like the most heroic version you know. I'm looking at a poster of Kurt Russell and like you better believe that. There's an aspect of her Russell. That snake right like he but then also in real life. He's not really that right but he but he can be that so with Sunny. We just basically took the most ridiculous awful aspects of our personalities and then we just put him on blast and then it gives you the opportunity exercise your demons vanity narcissism or anger frustration rage. And then it's cut and then you can go back to a normal life and in some. It's become so cathartic that it helps you become a better person outside of the job because your exercise exactly. You're getting it out of your system. It's like going for a five mile. Run if you're frustrated at the end of the run you're going to not be frustrated when you might be exhausted but you're not going to be as angry so it kind of extends in quest where. I'm like well sure this guy's insanely ego maniacal vain narcissistic and those things. Well yeah there's an aspect of my personality. Of course there is. I mean I'm doing look at what I do for a living right. It's like look at me. Look at me look at me but I but those are to me the worst angels of my nature right and so I want to express them in a way that's like constructive and fun and then ultimately funny and then leave it there at the stage and then go home to my kids one of the things as I like that you guys kind of delve into the show is yeah this character. Who's like this young Gamer? What's the characters name? Pootie SHOE RECLUSE. Who WHEELS INSANE POWER? Because he's reviewing these games from his bedroom wherever and as you well know we all know these people really do exist. And they do have a lot of power. The part that I find interesting is like as you all know. Wake in recent years there's like whole phenomenon of fans feeling entitled to dictating where their beloved property goes like I know best. What THE NEXT STAR. Wars movie should be the next season of my favorite show. Where do you stand on that? Unlike sort of the fans lake should fans lay back and enjoy or do they have a part in the process for you as a creator. Yeah I think I have a different perspective than I hear a lot of some of my compatriots having I I welcome it. I truly welcome now. I have not felt the vitriol in the way that I see you know Damon And Ryan Johnson and so again. I'm coming from a completely different perspective. I will say though that I appreciate it. Look all day long. Part of my Gig is if I'm doing it correctly. Round not painter not sitting by myself in a room painting by myself. I'm not playing the guitar and writing songs by myself. I'm working with other people to collaborate to make something so all day long. I'm in a room with writers. I'm in a room with with actors. I'm in a room with art. Directors and directors and. My job is not to get what I want. My job is to listen to everybody's ideas and then be the arbiter of what winds up going into the show and I think you're really limiting yourself if you're closing yourself off if you're so insecure that you believe you're right all the time right and I feel like I'm just not talented enough to do to do that. And I truly believe that. I'm not saying that to be to be humble. I I think that one of my best skills is hiring the best people and then listening to them right and then having also the I do believe I have enough confidence in myself and in my vision of what I'm looking for to either say you're right in this moment and we're going to do that but also actually I heard you. I understand but I believe you're wrong and I'm going to go with my gut on this one. And that's my Gig. What it makes you defend your argument argument. Yes your side can only make hopefully the stronger. Yes so when I GET FEEDBACK FROM FANS. I feel the exact same way right or if I read reviews or criticism or things that people are saying. Are It does? It truly doesn't bother me if people especially because most likely it's come from a place of love right and they want to. They want their version of it right. And sometimes I really will hear it out and take it out and take it into account and then adjust what what I'm doing but not because somebody told me to do it because I was open to the fact that they might be right right. The only thing that I have no time for our opinions From people who aren't really an effort to try to understand what we're doing and just want to be angry right now and there's a difference and it's and it's obvious what the differences so you have a character like Pootie shoe and it's really fun and funny but it's true right that these that there are people out there that these billion dollar industries are relying on positive reviews from these kids but everybody thinks that's unfair. I don't think so I mean if you are targeting a certain audience and and you have the voice of that audience. Who saying I don't enjoy this. Well look man you have to at least take a look at what why that might be short and in the end in the end you might say. I GET IT I. I've heard you out. I don't care I'm going to do it anyway. That's the process so I want to go back a little bit. I mean everybody knows anything about you and sunny. They all know what the the mythic story of Sonny by now. The two hundred dollar pilot. How you guys kind of what was in reaction to all of that part of what I'm fascinated by was like. How old were you again when you started making sunny so when we made on our own? Fx bought it. When you start at so many six okay twenty-six your showrunner with no experience running a show. What I mean at the time was ignorance bliss. Did you feel in over your head? What was that first year? Like for you running your own show. I definitely didn't feel an over my head. I feel like Well first of all I had great partners and that is really important if I was really out there on my own. I don't know what my experience would have been great partners but beyond that I do think that it was a luxury to almost..

"rob mcelhenney" Discussed on Happy Sad Confused

"I just didn't want to do something for the sake of doing something I recognized. That was coming from a place of extreme privilege because I had a TV show that I owned. That was on the air for seven or eight years. I didn't have to do do those jobs. I didn't want but and I remember even talking to my My agent at the time and then being like you know you're passing on everything and I like you know it's not even that I have this like incredibly discerning or discriminating taste. It's just the stuff that I'm getting garbage and I don't WanNa work just to work and I. I learned very early on from talking to people that that idea of like a springboard project just doesn't work you have to love what you're doing have you can't do something just because you think it's going to get you something else because it's too much work and then ultimately you could also backfire where people see it and they go well. That guy's terrible so I kind of just held back on that and then there were other TV projects but couldn't act on them so I was able to write and produce but I couldn't act and we couldn't act on them and we have a very specific comedic sense right and so it's like we would try to write things in then we would shoot a pilot and you know it's not that we didn't hire great actors. We did but they just didn't do what we did. And I remember at one point. I was directing a pilot that I wrote or Co wrote with Charlie and we thought it was really funny and we hired a through the casting process and we hired a really great actor and but he wasn't necessarily known for being very funny but it was studio loved him and we were like okay but we can make it work and I remember on the first day. The scene was that he was being humiliated right and I was like okay. So what's happening here is like you're being a basically like torn down. You're being humiliated. And he was like okay give it. Why is that funny and I was like. I turned a CHARLEENA'S I don't know with us there. I Turn Charlie. I was like I don't know what we're GONNA do man like he just like it's not. I don't know how to give somebody direction if they don't understand. Why being humiliated is funny. He was more of like. I'm a star. You know what I mean and so we realized that that's not GonNa work so then I went from that to Last three years I was going to make the minecraft moving. Yeah to write and direct the minecraft movie and that was actually really pleasant experience. Almost all the way through up until the point where it wasn't great great great and look at look all due all due. Respect to warner brothers. At the time I mean it was a massive swing for them. And there was this executive. There who's the head of production named Greg Silverman? And he was such a champion of mine and a really sweet guy. And I don't know if you've if you've ever met Greg so he was running brothers for a long time and and I remember they were looking for somebody to that would have a different take on this on this mass potentially massive franchise and only thing. I had ever directed were a episodes of television and a couple of shorts here and there to kind of prove my worth in the visual effects room. Because I just like you know your brother and Eddie like I'm I'm working TV. But I'm also interested in some of the same movies. I'm seeing posters for right in your in your office and I'm like okay. If I'M GONNA to get a chance to do that. I have to prove myself like it. It was sunny so I start making these shorts and then paying money to have visual effects companies come in and and I took this short and then take that I had for the minecraft movie and I went is that there's no way they're gonNA give me this job and I pitched it to the people for minecraft and then I pitched it to warner brothers and they hired me so I couldn't believe. Are you comfortable saying what your take was? Because I had the point conversations with Mike my nephews trying to explain what minecraft is to me and I still don't honestly get it so I'm just curious like what what I would have been. Yeah so I know. I'm uncomfortable talking about it. Because fuck them at this point you know I loved playing the game and I love playing it with my kids and I basically and Lego had they had just come out and Chris and Phil to me are like comedy. God's right so I sort of looked at the same way which is like a video games that I've seen video game movies in the past most of which don't work and I think part of the reason they don't work because there's already a fixed narrative and the experience of gaming's that you're a part of the narrative to a certain extent right like you're controlling what's happening in the game and then all of a sudden you see it up in movie form and you're like well now. I'm just a passive passive right and so and so. I thought one of the greatest assets that to minecraft was that they didn't have a fix narrative that it was an open world experience. And all you were essentially given where the building blocks to do whatever you want and so it was one of those games where you're of course it's A. It's a much younger audience. I thought what an amazing tool much like Lagos right. Except now you're now you're talking with infinite possibilities because it's digital to give to kids and not just kids but but any person who feels powerless rights and kids mostly feel powerless all day long. They're being told what to do how to dress. Do your homework go to bed. And and I felt like that could maybe extend to other people and I think everybody feels marginalized a certain extent. You feel as though your boss is telling you what to do all day long or your spouses or you just feel like you're you're you don't have the sense of agency over your own life and the game gave you that and I thought well that's a really profound experience and I think that's why it's really hitting all over the world because these kids might seem silly but these kids in the graphics were awful by design because who cares. The most important part was that you were given agency over your own experience in the game. And that's sort of what I started with. I was like well. That's like the the the the thematic component Yup and I remember I spent some time up at Pixar became friends with some some of the guys up there. Andrew Andrew Stanton who's this incredible director and became a good friend of mine and they asked me to come up and be a part of one of their brains sessions which is wow what a learn hoedspruit hetty room and really learning how these movies get made and what a collaborative process but what. Andrew always said was. He basically breaks every single movie. He's ever worked on into one. Maximum one very short maximum and no matter what he can always come back to that right if he's lost at any point in the film what's our and it should be that simple. It shouldn't be two sentences. It should be one sentence. It should be a few words. And that's why those films by the way work on the massive level they do because there's simplicity of clarity of purpose even if you're not cognizant of it yes and then. He challenged me and was like go back and go figure out. Go to your all your favorite movies and figure out what that maximum is and by the way it might be different from what you know. Zemeckis was intending. But that doesn't matter what matters is your view on what you got out of it right. That's none of your business anymore. That's another lesson I've learned. But but you as long as you have that balanced right and so I came up with what that was for me and then I pitched that to warner brothers and then I pitched a very simple story about people taking agency over their own experience in this in this digital landscape and and they went for and and man like talk about really like twin. Your balls on the line right like Greg civil moves like this one hundred and fifty million dollar movie right and and yet I really felt supported all the way through and we got to the point where we had a script that was in pretty good shape and you know how it works. They're always rewriting. But we had a production team. We had an art department. We had a visual Effects House. Dozens of we had on the Steve. Carell signed on to star in it. We had stages booked stages books and it was two weeks before the holidays. And someone sends me a text. They say hey Greg Silverman leaving warner brothers and I was like Oh. That's a bummer. I mean he's a really good friend of mine I really love him and I should have gone. Hollywood that you're not right at first. Impulse is not GonNa do to me. I wish them great luck. I don't know what the situation was. I- he seemed happy. He was going to go off and produce and I was like. Oh Okay I'll give them a buzz and say thank you for everything and then I'll get back to work. Well it's not really the way the movie business works zoo. Leadership has their own ideas and that was really that. Was it like an again? Toby who runs who. I don't know if it's still a superhero around the studio rent studio then. He was actually very gracious and he never actually really said. I don't believe in your you can't do this. It just slowly died on the vine and I don't think it was saying unless things because it's I'm saying I do say privately to I don't I don't harbor any resentment I get I get it. I get the way that it works right. It's like he comes in. And I'm not his Guy Greg Guy and and he had a different vision for what the studio was going to be and so it didn't happen but the thing that bum meow was that it was three two and a half years of my life and we were a month away. I was a month away from moving to Vancouver to start prep. Steve was already locked in his deal was done like we were making the move. Were packed bags. Oh Yeah we had.

"rob mcelhenney" Discussed on Happy Sad Confused

"Hey guys Josh Horowitz. Welcome to another edition of happy. Sad confused. Yes we're back with a new episode and a new guest. Someone I have never spoken with before. I'm a great admirers of his work. If you love comedy if you love innovative comedy that kind of reinvented the form you look. You can look no further than it's always sunny in Philadelphia. What fifteen or so years ago. ROB and a bunch of cohorts created this really kind of DIY. Sitcom DOWN AND DIRTY. Sitcom that surprised a lot of people on the fx channel. The second season they brought in Danny de Vito and ever since then it's been going going strong It's it's one of those shows that like I feel like I need to return to catch up on like I watched the first bunch of seasons. I forget that it's like always there. And and every so often you hear of them reemerging with like an innovation like a couple of years ago when rob Decided to gain fifty pounds between seasons and then a couple of years later when rob decided to end the season with a a world class ballet and showing off his newly buff bod like Robert and again his his collaborators over there are really interesting and they really push the boundaries of what's expected of so-called traditional sitcoms and he continues that with a new show this is. I knew series. Actually his first new like real brainchild of television series since it's always sunny primarily because that show is taken up so much of his time but this new show is called mythic. Quest Raven's banquet and as the title suggests it's the the the the kind of somewhat pompous title is really the title of the game within the show. This is about a three in a workplace comedy in some ways about folks that are developing the newest iteration of a jain normally successful video. Game a world of warcraft type. Game and ROB is at the center of it. He stars in it and he plays kind of a pompous asks. Right in the center of this really fun workplace comedy. I've seen the first few episodes. It's great it's Apple. Tv plus right now. I believe all nine episodes are there for you. They they all of them at once. It's already been renewed for a second season so there is investment in this. If you feel like Oh wait I don't WanNa get invested in a new show. It's GONNA come back for a second go round. And it's rob surrounded by a Great Ensemble F. Murray Abraham chewing the scenery. Like no one else can really fun show and this was a really fascinating conversation. Rob is a very intelligent thoughtful guy and really interested in hearing his approach to it's always sunny and the character choices he's made For himself and also why he hasn't been able to translate some of that success into feature films We talk at length about the minecraft movie that he was working on and was apparently like a couple of weeks. Away from going into production with Steve. Carell starring rob as the director. And why that even with the best of intentions fell apart. So that's fascinating to hear. Yeah this was. This was a good one rob. Hasn't really done a ton of publicity over the years because it's always sunny has kind of run on autopilot. It doesn't need publicity but He you know he came to New York. A couple of weeks back wanted to get the word out on this show on the eve of the shows debut and I'm so glad he stopped by and had a chat. This is. This is a really fun one other than that things mentioned. In the Josh Horowitz Universe had a chance to catch up woods Deutsche. Of course she's been on the podcast before she is always fantastic to talk to you. She has a new film called Buffalo. That just opened in theaters and on Video De. Check THAT OUT. That conversation is on. Mtv News Youtube channels. I put on my social so you can't miss that. She's always fun to talk to an end really fun to to see what she's up to. I mean I've been talking to her. Since she made her basically her film debut it will debut in Vampire Academy. But it was like certainly Her Verse Big Role and I've been talking to her ever since and been fascinating to see her trajectory and see where she's going to go next is really exciting. So yes catch up on that. What else if you haven't caught up our SAM SAM. Human live episode. Check that out in the feed. Yeah lots of good for you guys. I hope you guys are enjoying all that happy. Second fused has to offer remember to review rain. Subscribe to happy. Second fused spread the good word. And I hope you guys whether you're it's always sunny fan or not or whether you've checked out a mythic quest yet or not. This is a really interesting conversation with a thoughtful fund. Funny Guy An a true innovator in the comedy space this is rob mcelhinney. Rob Welcome to my office. Great to meet you thank you. It's wonderful to be here. That's US this by all. You mean just conversation. Yeah it's pretty magical feel Bajic. I mean you've had some some serious guests. I feel like there's a hair coming off your microphone. I Apologize. That's this is so embarrassing for you if there's another one that's all my hair. Shed like crazy interesting You got some serious guests in here. Now we're trying something different. Yes I appreciate that. I appreciate you lowering and lowering the bar allowing me in office. Stop It. I'm a big Fan of yours. I love the new. Shell congrats man. Thank you mythic quests. Yes Ravens banquet rate title. That's the way you have to say well. We recognized that we had great success in having a title that was too long to fit on a poster. Right Donny and ridiculous and then we thought well just extend out for the next one. Was it always going to have the the subtitle the Ravens banquet and WHO's Raven and what's the bank now. Okay so and that has been a point of contention. Is it Ravens banquet? Yeah was it ravens. As implores an Apostrophe S. meaning is at one Ravens banquet right right. I assume the shirt Raven banquet. It's the banquet of of of of engorge Raven. I suppose who would? Who would want to go to that? Or why right now? Actually the the original name of the show was You know what this is the first time. I'm actually GonNa talk about this. We have long long form so we can discuss it. Yes the original minutes on the title. Please okay perfect. The original name of the show is was hero. Quest Okay okay now. Everybody in the industry knows that there was a game called hero quest back in the day but it was so old. We felt like we wouldn't really wouldn't be an issue. It turns out it was and that didn't clear so we had to come up with another title and so we came up with and I'm not exaggerating. Fifty five titles and none of them cleared and the reason that they didn't clear was because the video game industry is just so massive and then it also extended further outside of the video game and just into games like board games and we just felt like apple and Lionsgate felt collectively that we just didn't want to open ourselves up to a certain level of exposure. But then we're also like guys we have to title the show something yeah and so- mythic quests even didn't quite clear but not because there was ever a Gamer show called mythic quest. There was another game called mystic quest and they thought that maybe that would pose some issues. So that's when we realized okay. The entire the entire first series. First Season of the show was about this new expansion and the new expansion was going to be something ridiculous. Call Ravens banquet right so we would call the first season of the show. Mythic quest Raven's banquet so neck out of that gets us out of the League. Solitaire right those two words so that the next expansion pack will be like the next season especially so next season which were in the middle of writing right now is Mitha Quest Colon something else stop and then the third season and then the fifteen and I don't what we're going to do but but ultimately we didn't fight back to hard because we felt like the title it's always sunny in Philadelphia so unbelievably ridiculous That now it's become kind of part of the charm of the show and people just call it sunny so we assume that that people just call us M Q Mitha question. This is your thing. Now this is your brand is unwieldy titles. So how's how's the press toward going because this is odd? Essentially for the last fifteen years you've been talking about one thing yes and often with other people and obviously still a collaboration collaborative show but your front and center. Yeah has it felt like a kind of a different kind of experience. Now that you're out front on a new project yes I mean. Honestly we haven't done this amount of press on Sunday. I mean ever we just with this press tour yesterday that that was insane it was insane and I'm not by no means complaining because we asked for it. We wanted it. But I've never taught I've never been so sick of my own voice and very cognizant of the fact that like you know there are other people in the room who are listening to me. Say the same things over and over and over again and you realize you talk to other actors and other writers and they say of directors and they say oh no. That's the norm and I just realized we'd never done that on sunny because when sunny I came out nobody cared right. Nobody wanted us on any of their shows and rightfully so nobody heard the show until four or five years in and then by that time like six or seven when it started to hit then we felt like the show didn't really need it anymore right and it wasn't because we were such a massive hit. It was just that we had hit like the niche audience that we knew we wanted and love and that to expand beyond. That probably wasn't going to happen because that's just not the nature of the show right so then I never did talk shows. I never did. I didn't do a ton of PODCASTS. I didn't do. I mean podcast actually didn't even exist time and that's how long we've been on and so I just Kinda felt like you know. We're going launch a new show that we should put. We should put everything into it. Does it feel like I'm somewhat surprised in like when I started to look at your work outside of sunny like it's been relatively correct me if I'm wrong. It sounds like there have been some difficulties in getting other projects going And we're going to get into like the unique nature of that. It's obviously like that was so wholly original and strange the way it all happened. But have you been surprised over the years that it's been tough to get feature directing other series things like this? I mean it takes up a lot of your time. But you've you've attempted other things. Sure yeah in the beginning sunny took up because we had no idea what we were doing and even though we were only doing ten to fifteen episodes a year because we were Our show running in because I was also in the show and then also editing and and we were still finding our footing for many many years. It took up a good chunk of your if not ten to eleven months so we didn't really have time to do anything else then slowly but surely we were able to come up with a more efficient way of doing things and then I was like okay. Let me branch out and do some other things and I was getting a offers to write and direct movies. That would be very similar to sunny. I had a couple of offers for movies that have since come out over the years and I just..

"I can't see fight specie okay. I'M GONNA GET DOWN IN MIAMI. I am I also for you. My Buddy's girlfriend lives is with the university and she's extremely lazy doesn't pay she doesn't live with us but she comes over every day and seats over doesn't do anything doesn't pay for anything US I think even she steals my food. I don't look like in play. She she's over when my buddy. Her boyfriend isn't home. I lost it. I was like what the fuck you doing here. She just a complete inconvenience my life on saying that. I'm being over exaggeration about like getting too much about this but I think it's just she. She comes over every night. It takes about seat on the coast in pay for the coach we did we have. TV's trespass on our days autumn. She's awesome Semaine time. I didn't know what to do. I'm talking to my buddy but let it. I have my own ridiculous so also heard despising this girl more than anyone New York anyway first of all love that Canadian accent. Yeah I I listen to this bill I are you doing what show he's talking about. I've never heard it called Ottoman. That's much more boring than engraved gray on an Ataman but the I think this is totally like I mean. Yeah you kind of being an asshole but like no. You're not it's like if it ended just like she's eating your food. Whatever that's like fuck you if you're I always think if you are worried about the your food urinate cheap it just by food? Someone might eat some. They'll buy fucking jar of peanut butter. It's not gonNA break the bank. Who cares it and I look? I'm not gonNA eat all so. I don't think you can get mad about sitting on the couch couch. I paid for like taking your see every day. But like you can't be like there is there is like a very necessary surrey relief it's not an actual side but it's it's almost like you know if you'll say like your attention in your shoulders and you feel it. I didn't even realize it. But that's Dasell you feel every day when you walk into your apartment and if there's someone there who is does not belong to tell you it's GonNa keep tidy and I am a firm. Believer are the significant. The significant the the significant other should not be there without the boyfriend and girlfriend. Like maybe an pinch or something like that. Do one time I was living with four guys. Three three bedrooms I was a big apartment is great parliament. My buddy had his girlfriend basically just moving doing this. She brought a cat and then my other buddy. His girlfriend was moving and was like a week in between her leases this and so she needed to stay so we have like four people two girls and a fucking cat and like and the one guy girlfriend we loved and it was like. She's in a jam she. Here's a place to stay fine. It was the other guy that was like what the fuck is your girl doing here. Now in her defense she used to like hide like she wouldn't sit on the couch and Shit so she was aware that she was being an inconvenience. We had one bathroom so sometimes she'd be in there. But we gotTA fucking go to work like let's go and there's just nothing worse than being like Yo. I know that you're blinded by love right now but this fucking prom. You have to notice the fact that you're gonNA give you have to see your to see that tension other people right can't be hearing. Yes there's always so many things that are just if there's nothing it's just it's honestly I mean it's just you being alive Yup. You're not just your press. It's it's you're not doing anything you're not being annoying. I A yell you're watching. TV You're breathing. You can't have someone here I need. I'll I'll do that with my roommates. I I'll be in my room alone. My Adore shot at someone coming son of knowing you're not alone you're not alone is a very awful feeling. You sign up for roommates so you know like at times times. I'm not going to be alone because these people who pay contribute and we agreed to are going to be here but when there's a third or fourth member or whatever it is who shouldn't be there and you and your buddies like well whatever because we're gonNA fuck later and it's like well I'm not gonNA I don't love you I'm not fucking you. We're not hanging out your house bothering me. I don't get any of the good I get all the bad. It's it's the worse thing and so you're not yes all the true asshole. Is the boyfriend here because the girlfriend is probably although she seems like an asshole to like by just flaunting. The girl who was in my situation who was like hiding I think she was kind of a situation to it was like all right. I'm trying my best to just like stay out of it. It's on the boyfriend to step up and be like all right. I know this is a problem guys. Hey Babe you can't do order I. It shouldn't even be but you know you're right. There's really no reason beer. I've a TV at home when you're here and you gotta know I guess like the ages of people at this is like right out out of college or like it's different if you're like thirty five versus twenty. They are different times. Where where this is a little more acceptable than others? But in general the rules dude. I've I've done this the importance of being alone. It cannot be stressed. I think it's up there with oxygen and water just just the time alone. I had at one time I was as I was at a girlfriend's house and she had a roommate and I was just sitting on the couch and the roommate wasn't there. Her roommate worked together so none of them were over. Ed She texted me. Hey my roommate's boyfriend is coming home you know. He's coming over to wait for her. Like just want to give you a heads up and I went and sat in the closet. It was like I did I I could hear him watching. TV and literally him. I didn't want to turn the TV on in her room room. I didn't want him to know they're going to have the conversation. So no corporate closet like a walk in closets. I just sat there my phone but it was like I didn't want because I was I was in full blown. I'm alone time. It's someone else apartment. I was fine to go hide in the closet but if it was my department I'd probably do the same and I wish he didn't have to. I didn't hear it in your own environment I need to I. Can't you want oversight. Get hard walking home on like to work from work. I'm about to be alone. Yeah minute is going to be on a quiet when that's when you get into you know a bad relationship Asian ship bad marriage where you're living with someone it's bad and it's like your home now becomes like you're you're scary place. You're tense place. You know what I mean I it. Is You have to have that alone time. It's guys hide in the bathroom. The one place that guys can still like. I don't think I'm going to take like an hour long shower as you ain't gonNA bust in the door here everywhere else. Just like someone's going to bother me I it's crazy and it's just an accepted thing for so long. My Mom always says about my dad. He wouldn't live with us we didn't have to because it's just CD's seizing. If he wasn't legally obligated to live with us he wouldn't. Because that's why I preach separate dinners. I've gone as far as the pre separate bedroom. He doesn't have to happen happen every night but there are selling. It should be accepted. I need to be alone tonight right. I just have to be. I'm moving to a hotel. Fuck anyone go tell. Yeah I need nothing against you. It's just human nature. I can't be with anyone anymore. My shoulders tight for six weeks next up. KFC fights super producer. PC possibly big cat. If it's a classic had a question for you I just go to my favorite deli sort of my favorite sandwich. You know once a week I go there and whatever and I have to cross my fingers that I don't get certain employees because she always Fox my sandwich in which today for lunch Lo and behold yes she has takes water. I made sure I give it nice and clear. She does find the counter shears like struggling a little like thinking looking around like okay here we go again and I wouldn't care if it's like I order provolone and she gives me American cheese or something dumb whatever but if she you start putting tuna salad or something like chasing cutlet sandwich like why am I allowed to defend myself yet is that is bang or do I just have to take my sandwich sandwich and walk out the door like the Lynch. AM also discontentment restaurant and order a rare steak and it comes back like well. Don't Mike a Hockey puck and I'm not one to ever send anything back but is there a line in this world where I'm allowed to start defending myself. Thanks guys. Here's I mean you know what me John I'm going to say I mean you you can definitely defend yourself. You're well within your rights. Defend yourself right away. The line is when someone screws up what they're supposed to be that's the actual life. No no that's the literal line. The actual line is like she has to be like causing the harm. Harm say any. I don't issue putting broken glass on it. Yeah I mean if it's dangerous to me may maybe I'll probably watch her. Put the broken glass. John pay her smile. Take garbage another Deli. I will never return something on for cooking. Dude I have maybe sometime. Maybe even super super undercooked and it's as as much just like just pop it back in but if it's overcooked and it means like they gotta make a new one or something then definitely not I do it sometimes downstairs the pop. Elliot's where they they they get your sandwich out. And they're not very good dancers on and often you eat there but not often and they're very incredibly slow. I'll walk in. I mean just be me and I'll stand there for ten minutes to Colt Sam Cook. It gets hot oh it is and I will say. Can I have a tuna tuna sandwich. Police and the woman who say absolutely. I'd love to get that for you. And she starts cotton open and we're looking at each other and thank you so much man. I'm overly polite and she. It just takes a heap and a handful of chicken POPs in that puts on the conveyor belt very slow. I have ample time to say that's chicken not to I. Don't I just walk down to the end of it and I get. I have a chicken slow cooked perfect. That's exactly what I want to thank you so much and that's Eh and you walk out. That's the way I mean. That's just the way I if I don't know if he really clarified what she does. Exactly right right but a ah the food you eat just eat it. You're alerted to fucking like go to another place where there's more competent people you know what I mean like when you're ever craving something if I'm craving slice of pizza and if I walked by a cheeseburger off perfect you're like a puppy dog. Go all right. Yeah that'll work. It's like what are you in the mood for Chinese pizza. Okay I mean who really cares..

"KFC AFC needed a cigarette after that interview it was it was amazing. It really was. And you know what he's self deprecating fault like. He's gone themselves short. They said he doesn't have the x factor. Compliments everyone else and I feel like because deep down he knows like we do the self-deprecation all the time I'm I'm not self deprecating about the things. I really think I'm bad at it. I just keep my mouth shut else. Notices right yeah bring up leg oh fat. I know that I'm not fat. Fat they stink. I'm pretty good. I'm all right exactly. You know. So so when he's like. Oh yeah everyone is a good actor and everyone else has has laid off right right right. I mean yeah could not have been better and I feel like we're we got caitlin in the crosshairs Charlesdale. Hopefully the last one before we move onto rickety cricket and artists and I want the entire cast at some point. I want to talk to the lawyer and calm lawyer Rob Rob did say that he was as US leaving. You said it again into our booker as he was walking out. He's like I wanNA come back soon. He was upset at how quick the interview was the late July stuff so he was like. I WanNa come back so rob is going to be EVAC shortly at some point when he'll be girl and you got a lot more to talk about. Fuck we this is how you know you have a good interview if everybody out there a little behind the curtain if you're ever podcast interview or whatever. We both had like an entire page of notes and bullet points to hit we hit. I don't think it was a good interview. No it is it is. I think it's both I think it's like burke questions but we we we don't WanNa like we have questions we need. Ah I think we can lean on but we'd have a conversation. That's you know you got a good conversation. Maybe not an interview. I think that when you go into an interview saying question answer question answer question answer. Lee Wait Barbara. Walters doesn't get any of your questions not agreed interview right. She's like Oh we didn't even bring up Syria. That was like the whole point of this. What the fuck is our other pocket? Eagles PAT's so you know it was a good conversation. Think about if you tried to script every conversation in your life. I'm going to go to the bar. I'm talking my buddy about this and I'm going to talk about this and then I'm GonNa say this and then he's GonNa say that I can watch them now. You just let it flow and that's what we're doing with our guy. I just him making funnier. Fat Baby Hands was maybe legitimate children's birth and then there's always like I was set up for that came as a Miller lite and I immediately I saw them because we have two of their and I saw and I did not say fucking thing. Because I wasn't going to hand them fucking unopened Miller. John goes like this. If you're not if you're willing to watch it on goal he went. He went to put his shirt on top of it and Mac arrived. Rob just goes. That's ridiculous right. He I think he wanted it to happen. You GotTa talk about the beer so that you can open and then I'm GonNa Roast. It was. I knew I couldn't grab that in your hand because it would be ridiculous. Grab a beer for someone. Handed him without taking the cap off. That's just so I knew I couldn't do that. And then brandon came in fifteen minutes later with the beard. He ran to the Multiple Bodega really. I thought they were just in the pantry. Shot out to be seen even making that happen at a run for it. I knew we had some and I checked every fridge bridge. We have here. I was like well. What beer in the house it's gone like mantis brings dates here in Shit? Any good food or booze poof gone I have a I have a weird thing. This is GonNa this like all right. This is a good one preference like I know I sound like an asshole boy like I understand that. This is probably coming from a place of what's happening so I'm watching designated survivor show on Netflix. Hey is is awfully John's hate watching it. I love it. I really like fast and furious territory. But it's just like like every episode ends with this ridiculous Hook really well. I mean. It's three o'clock in the morning but play next. Great keep which it's fucking awesome. There's it's it's great. It's great television but it's right but in designated survivor. They're awfully lot of geopolitical issues. Would happen with a show in the White House right and every time they happen where it's like. Oh you know. Russia knows we've got a tax so they're moving subs into Serbian coast. Because they know that's where our based or whatever and I'm like why I got like do you not like everyone's good right. I get the complete play leverage place of privilege or whatever but like when I get into time when they were exploring. We're discovering new lands and stuff like that that we have our country's just do your country played right. That makes perfect. I mean listen. That's what it should be just leaving your country and have your country and I'm GonNa live country my country and if you walk Rom Com but just don't come and bring war and get. We probably do that a lot. Well okay our country doesn't have crude oil and their country does come your problem. Crude oil in Alaska. Not Enough not enough. That's where it comes to like some countries more valuable than other countries and that's where we co we want we just we buy it from them. Yeah but then buy from me we why well all of this fucking like political maneuvering to happen. You good right well. I just want everyone to be friendly. He just happened. I think. I think it's very as as well I mean. I think that's the message to be good right. Well okay. I agree that the world should be living under the you. Good you good. They they go to the UN they lean over on the delegate from United States. You good guys Middle East. The borders are set. These these are the borders now. Okay now we live within these borders. Anything in here's mine right and I'll tell you who are good. Let me tell you another problem like okay. They're good believing that their causes to like spread their religion and murder. Anybody who doesn't agree with that so when you say you good. They're like no. We're not you don't believe even Allah whatever the fuck you know. Whatever their causes so no? I'm not good but like people in in Russia. We why you WANNA come like. That's really the the one that may come take our spies for just so much effort that's us in Russia isn't even like anything. Other than just a power Dick matches can be rush over there. DUDE RELAX WE'LL BE AMERICA over year. I just think about like the like the political science major listening I was just like Oh my God. He's like he's right again. You are all right. You're so wrong you know you're right. Yours dummy I I. I think I'm going to modern HIPPIE. Where the Oh you definitely are? You're also getting to a point. I didn't even know it was possible. It's like Kramer with like we're going to go see how far to empty we can go and really empty is the right word you're really pushing the boundaries of how little you care about it and like I can't tell you how many conversations we've had recently where he was like. Yeah but like who cares and I was like well. What do you mean? He's like who cares about like anything. You just said it to me. I'm just like well I I guess I guess that applies none of this matters. I mean realistically what does it matter we. We're talking about the INS and outs of pen. And what's going to happen in the future. For our jobs he cares. I was like oh well. Yeah correct me and you won't be like in the room like signing the papers like we don't have to live with me you literally.

"rob mcelhenney" Discussed on KFC Radio

"I got it was would have been great in the eighteen hundred porn headed adopt. So you mentioned wonderfully talented people. You're with and Kayla had the MIC and AP bio and Charlie. You know I mean he did more work at the Super Bowl the fucking most here right so I was with him the week before we spent a lot of time together obviously and He was like Super Bowl. WHOA he's like? They asked me to do so commercial. Sure they did force they. He's like I don't know how many days of work one too I was like I. I was a symbol of commercialism. Awesome expecting something and I turn on the game. And I'm watching him like he's he's like four different every break every cutting to Charlie and then I tweeted something in the some sometime midway through the fourth quarter something about Charlie having a bigger role in the game than the Than the chiefs offense. Yeah and I swear as soon as I hit send I mean it was like I was like all right. That was a good tweet and then I'm watching this happen. I'm like this is not aging mm-hmm well aging well and of course if you've been following chiefs all season certainly Patrick mahomes almost entire career. You're like well he's GonNa he's go figure something out but I wanna come to your defense here. This is an issue near dear to my heart. You didn't get old takes exposed. That's a big thing. People like to tweet like takes. That ended up being wrong in that moment. He you were correct. That was a right. He gets hit a lot with that as well as fine. In the moment it was good it was correct age it lived it. Didn't that time and in that time it was the correct. Yes it wasn't a prediction I would. You didn't say he the end of the game. Charlie will have been in this more than she offers. You said Charlie has been there's more than the chiefs offense rob. You're right and then I was. I was able to retro retroactively ameliorate not by going into leading this week. That was right in the moment but but just changing the wording in a little bit and saying that he's got more a bigger role in this game than the forty niners defending you go. I was just so happy for anti I really was. He brought a lot any re- obviously they he. He brought a lot of joy to the city field. Anybody who was not and I ask you this because I I. I Forgive Eagles fans. If you guys didn't get your ring what would you have felt. Would you be happy. Would you have been salty. WOULD YOU HAVE BEEN I L S. I mean it's hard to. It's hard to say shirt. Sure you'd be you'd be upset but it's just hard to root against somebody it's like I I whenever I hear people talk about Donovan mcnabb to them like look. Donald mcnabb brought a lot of joy to the city of Philadelphia. More than other quarterbacks other players Who are beloved Randall? Cunningham is like beloved one of my favorite players. Because that's when I was ten years old. That's who watching right but Randall didn't get us to. The Super Bowl ran on and get us to four. NFC Championships Right. So so yes. He didn't go all the way. But man you got real close so I always thought about Andy So I I to go back. That's what I was saying. This is your first big project when everybody else has kinda done their own thing. You feel like it's You know your time to break out of the bubble a little bit with Cathodic Quest Raven's banquet gas all this is good. That's good when you are B or some shit. I don't know but I I really when we were talking talking about the title we were like okay so so we have this other show and which is the most ridiculous in horrible title in the history of television now become an asset for some reason so so how can we do that again. came up with another one. And you're like how now Brown car before like West Raven domeisen banks commit hoping that peop- next season's going to be called something else so it's going to be working really. Yeah so the show about a video game called mythic quest is the name of the actually the name of the show but each year is going to be about a new update or expand is so this year is about. If you don't know anything about video games and expansion has basically just just the mode of play for that particular year so it would be ravens banquet which is so fucking stupid. First season next season. It'll be mythic mythic quest something else third season then so are we signed on for that. We're doing we're in the middle of the second season awesome and once we get the season fourteen fifteen. I don't know what it's going to be something you you had planned for a while or is this like apple came to you. We want you to make a show. No actually we were approached by UBISOFT which is a game company and they said we want to do something in the video game industry and I was like I. Just don't I didn't care that much. Are you a Gamer Games. But I wouldn't consider myself a Gamer But they invited me up to their studio in Montreal and I visited with them and and got to meet a lot of the like characters that that worked up there and I told the store a few times I was really funny so I walk walk in again having no interest in making a show about the gaming industry and I see this guy. He's just head to toe in black right and he's got these rings and as long long beard and he's got a cane but he's got to be thirty five years old and he's not limping or anything and the right and he's just like walking and I'm like Oh hey man man he's a clue and I'm like so what do you what do you do he goes. I'm creative director of creative director. and He looked out into the heavens. You know fucking fluorescent lights. And he goes brother. I build worlds me for one second. I went outside. I was like Papa Papa Charlie doing a show about these motherfucking on it and then I spent the rest of the day hang out with them and then and meeting all he's like it was actually a really cool eye opening experience. I don't know if you guys play games. But you know it's obviously global phenomenon and what you realize is. It's the stereotype has always been. Oh Oh it's the fourteen year old boy in his mom's basement. Whatever completely untrue that industry dwarfs the entertainment industry ran theft auto? When I tell people that they can't believe it? I mean it's fucking open true. I don't know if you know this. Grand Theft auto as a gaming series has made more money than the entire star wars star wars franchise including merchandise. Nice grand theft auto has made more money as a franchise then Pixar the movie studio sold to Disney whole entire libraries past past and present. So you realize and everybody knows who Steven Spielberg is. Everybody who George Lucas's right couldn't tell you you tell me the people people that right and so that fucking Piss Star Games right the name. Yeah so you know the studio but you don't know the people behind behind them right and you have these these these incredibly gifted engineers that make these games. And they're looking around they'll go. I got people playing this game all over the world. It's made ten ten billion dollars whatever and nobody knows my name and like when you have that kind of that kind of situation and the eagles at takes Jan the mall together and everybody's got their own gig within the studio. It just makes for a really fun fun environment that you said that. It's they all hate each other. Well I don't I don't know how to do a show where the characters look with the best shows of all time are always shows with people stuck together right even family sitcoms uh-huh if everybody's just getting along and it's all fun and sweet what the fuck show is that right can relate rather Kevin actually had a great question earlier earlier and I'm GonNa let you ask it because it was your and I feel like it. All Applied Ian Grim is a guy in Ryan grim noxious. Sports Your Eye Ryan what I feel like your every time. Any of you guys talk about your characters on sunny it comes with like of course this disclaimer of other awful. They're disgusting. They're arrogant they're selfish. They're rude but like you kinda like Mac right. Well Yeah I mean this. He kind of down the the way that we got to where we got to and I really think this is true about any any certainly television actor and then and their relationship with their character. Because you're doing it all the time and you're spending a lot of time with with that character and then the writers are seeing what you do well and then writing too that there are aspects six of your own personality right that are on display. And then. Because that's what you know how to do and then you're just taking the most extreme versions of that and then putting it on putting it on screen right so so so I'm real. It's like yes. I would never behave the way that MAC does. But it's almost like I have this opportunity to exercise all of like my jar not get it out and so the it gives me the opportunity to do that one when between action and cut and then I can say whatever I want right and then after that I'm like yeah well you know I feel I feel much better exercising. You get on the podcast and just say whatever they want like. I see the show and I see the Yang and I. I hear that they're awful. I'll see I'd love to hang out with those people and it's I think it's as bad things about me as a person because like I know we'd get along fun I didn't know if fraud mcelhinney and I would. Yeah I knew me and MAC would we would. I think that does speak more. Dan Look I do hear that a lot and I think that the joke is always like oh well then you know you're a psychopath path as well but I don't think that's true. I think that the reason that people been able to watch it for fourteen years is because no matter how terrible the characters are they're homophobic misogynistic bacon racist and all these awful things. It's so clear that we're not ran it and you hear all this bullshit. All the time about people are like. Oh it's all one big happy family and they're lying. Think this show. We are found with because we are all related or we're married to one another war and we are and we have because we've been together for fifteen sixteen years and I knew those skype for another three years before that we're all best friends and so it's so obvious. I hope it's obvious that that as you're watching it you you can't help but even even if your conscious brain is watching what you're watching your Lizard Brain and your subconscious is picking up on the fact that the filmmakers themselves are not misogynist racist homophobic phobic and and we're having a blast doing right.
