"I would not be here without her. She's got me over the hump every step of the way. Yep. Every step of the way. And I love that. And classy guy, you can tell well liked by other actors excetera, and then black clansmen, which I that movie. I thought was tremendous Spike Lee was the director. And he I think he thought and a lot of people thought that that movie had a great chance to win more awards. Of course, he did win an award and was very excited. He won his first ever Oscar for best adapted screenplay for black klansman. It was based on Ron stallworth twenty fourteen novel that name I read that that story, and he he had an interesting. Speech. And he when he was so excited he jumped on the stage and jumped into the arms of Samuel L Jackson. They do a lot of commercials and our buddies and you've seen during the Super Bowl. They had a pretty interesting commercial in anyway. I think some people thought maybe that that movie could've won some more awards and with green book in green book thing announced as winner of the best picture at the Oscars. That was a big moment for them. So. And there's and green book, by the way is is also a true story of pianist, Dr Don, Shirley, and that's who Mahershala Ali played. And then his his white driver again true story, and as they go on this journey on a concert tour through the deep south, and and there was some controversy about that through the awards circuit that kind of. Unfolded. Because there were there were relatives who were disappointed, and how parts of the life were portray his life were portrayed on film etcetera. And I guess. A kind of depicted that he was estranged from his family and disconnected from the black community. And they say that was false. But in a bottom line is big awards for some people who were very very talented. There's always controversy connected with the Oscars in some way. That's not a shocker when we talk about movies as we do here on this show because America tonight is about the crossroads of everything that we're talking about. I say this all the time. I feel like I'm the voice of reason, and whether you're left of left right of writers where Queen I talk about what's awful at the box office. We'll in my opinion, and what really really works, and so there were some interesting films than there is some interesting choices, ultimately that that were were made in this case. Let's put it that way. I had. In the meantime, this segment is called odds and ends. And so there are. Are some stories that might have gone under the wire that you did not notice one of them that came to my attention was this. And maybe it's because as a kid, I would beg my mother to let me eat lucky charms. She never wanted us to eat cereal that was loaded with sugar. But I was reading a story today about this Virginia brewery that says they've got this beer beer have with lucky charms. They say it's magically ridiculous. And they have a limited edition beer with marshmallows except Tra and think lucky charms, and you get the you get lucky charms beer. So it's kind of a new beer. That's twist on that cereal. I just ooh. I can't imagine it. It's a play on lucky charms what they're calling it. That's why this slogans magically ridiculous. And they've got these these cans of beer limited to restaurants and bars and specialty shops. But I mean, just for the sake of trying what what could possibly tastes like of everything that they can do to food and peers excetera, I mean, it must still taste like beer. I would assume and I don't know it is limited that makes sense there, certainly not marketing children, and they had to be very careful about that. They're they're going for the Stahl in people like me or whoever else in the days when we were watching cartoons that we and we actually played games, we weren't on our phones all day long. But what could that beer possibly taste like a little more marshmallow e a little more sugary? I don't know. No, I'm almost tempted. I'm almost tempted to get a can of this stuff. So I could be able to tell you what it actually tastes like. And I'm thinking it could go either way could be really appalling. Or really phenomenal. Speaking of watching cartoons Saturday morning. One of the shows that my brother, and I watched as a kid was the Munster. Did you watch the monsters, and I just learned that one of the main actresses in it Beverley Elwin who was the original Maryland on that show just died at the age of eighty one. And that show I thought was so so clever. She was in in the show, thirteen episodes playing Marilyn Munster. And it seemed like that show went on and on and on forever. But because back in the day when they did those shows how many repeats did they have. And they certainly had a lot of repeats on that show. But she she was good. I remember I remember her in that part, and she left the show. I didn't know this to marry a writer and producer on the show. And and so, of course, he was replaced after after that so dead at the age of eighty one and she she died of ovarian cancer they said, she leaves behind two daughters, but had a little bit of a short time. But a successful run in the tricky world of show business. Let's put it that way. All right. We're diving out when we come back on the flip side, we're go to your thoughts as I dive.

Second nominee second nominee, black klansman, spike, Lee's historical drama, and at the same time sort of historical fantasy about the combating of the KKK in a Colorado. Police precinct on by a white and a black officer. How do you propose to make this investigation love establish contact and created some familiarity with the clansman over the phone I'll continue in that role. But only another officer surprise surprise a white officer the play me when they meet face to face. That's my point exactly chief black Ron stallworth over the phone white Rostov face to face becomes a combine Ron stallworth. Can you do that? I believe we can with the right white, man. We can do anything. It's an. An outrage that Spike Lee has never been nominated. Fred directing Oscar before. Now, how do you think spec? Leo make out, and what was your view of black Landsman. It's weirdly hopeful retroactively and at the same time. It's a history. Lesson is a tremendous amount of cultural context in black plans minutes ineffective movie that takes the cultural background and pulls it into the foreground and brings it up to the present. I mean, one of the things that I think about most often with black klansman was the kind of use that Spike Lee made of footage that all of us have watched on TV Charlottesville, and I think in other events and how emotional and freshly terrible it felt to watch that kind of footage that we've all seen, but re contextualised and finally the film that I think it really is the the Brodie film of the year is an can't do. There we go madeleine's Madelein Josephine Deckers film madeleine's. Madeleine is a very classic and somewhat classical coming of age story, the story of a high school student in New York who is both a theatre prodigy and with suffering from mental illness and also who like all teenagers isn't a very stressful relationship with her mother played by Miranda, July. But what's so exciting about this film is that Helena Howard who was a teenager at the time. She made the film gives what I consider one of the greatest team performances in the history of cinema. There's one scene an improv exercise in theater troupe where she's impersonating her own mom, and you see some of the raw fury. She feels toward her mother coming out in that scene..

"That spikes honor is a longtime coming from the academy many people remember the award season. When do the right thing was out in theaters and making such a cultural impact and spike was not nominated for director that year. This is the movie that came to spike, thanks to producer, Jordan Peele. It was based on the memoir of former Colorado police officer, Ron stallworth and Spike Lee adapted that book with screenwriters Kevin Willmott, Charlie walked L, David Rabinowitz, and they're nominated for best adapted screenplay when Jordan pill gave me the pitch of the film. Six word pitch black men, infiltrate KKK, the first word came to my mind is is this true. And enjoy. Yes. And then the next word this is absurd. So the Umer this is not a comedy. The you move from black clans comes from the absurdity of the premise social Ganic carrying that weren't writing jokes. Lee. You're getting the Uber organically from the premise. Now, the word tone was hard is what we did you had to get the right balance, some of my favorite filmmakers, dumbness standing Kubrick foot. Doctor Strangelove what is more serious than the now relation of this earth of humankind. I don't know if you get more Susan that. But that film had a lot of humorous. So it's been done before. I didn't do right thing. We've back eighty nine, but it's very hard to get the right balance is like tightrope Walker. Go of balance to let the right.

Viral photo of him working as a cashier at trader Joe's last year. And anyway, he he was you know, people were just say we shaming him. That's what it was.

You don't know when your next job is coming Jason Bateman made reference to that Rami Alec. But this has been something that they've always ended. The Sega words they started off. I am an actor. Story you tell a story is it. Did you get cast? You know people. Do we don't have. Now the guy. No, no, we didn't ask for that.

And you know, we talked on sage jed with bozeman gave a good movie acceptance speech, and then very eloquent in the back. Our friend Tanya hurt asked a good question about the importance of this movie getting made it'd be popular. And what it means? And so it was very we're like, wow. You would have been glad if you watch the whole show, I think. Oh, yeah. Memorium boy with a little twenty a lot of people was a lot of people a lot of people, and Danny I know you posted this and probably, you know, that's maybe we're Alec Baldwin was on the show last night, the trailer for drunk parents is here, and he's in it was so my supposed to be the trailer is very funny. Oh, good might be. If it's this funny now, I'm worried are those all the funny. Be a train wreck that that's just Bonilla. I agree. That happens in trailers, they show you all the really funny parts. So take a look at that. If you would like we also have the red carpet eighty two different dresses that were worn and Zach Ephron is scaring the hell out of us looking like Ted Bundy and a net. Oh my gosh. Does he ever trailer? Kind of. I know it's it's uncanny resemblance. Bundy also Julia ju Andrew Cunanan, I'm not Andrew Cunanan Gianni Versace Darren criss came back.

"Man. Let's save this. 'cause we'll do when you would do top-five spike with with fantasy for his for the big picture practice. Be anyway. I don't think you should have to feel bad about not loving this movie. I'm not sure I don't know. I mean, I think there's something about the K K K that just is is like the idea that Spike Lee made a movie about the KKK. That's just like it's too irresistible. Yeah. And you know, it's not the movie doesn't work. It's just that it doesn't work as well as it could have. And I think the ending is terrible. I had a real problem with the last ten minutes, I was really in Charlottesville footage. I don't like when he does that in general when he when he weaves in the real life at the end of the movie. I just wanted to watch a movie and tell tell me what you're trying to say through the movie, but ASO didn't like the actual ending before the before the show. I just didn't like I thought the last ten minutes it really kind of fell apart. But the other stuff I enjoyed so much. I added mind it, but you know, it is what it is. It was good, and he got really good performances out of really everybody. But Adam driver went to level in that movie that I I gotta be honest. I didn't know he had 'em. Like, I do feel like he's in a Leslie man potentially now. And I didn't feel that way before the movie. Yeah. I think Adam driver is good. I think there's something when the movie is a comedy the movie works when the movie is a drama or an action movie or a love story. It does not work that there's this really does that great sequence in the beginning of the movie are like toward the beginning. When he goes to that. When when Ron stallworth goes to that sort of black power student meeting that Kwami to Ray is sort of rally were coming to raise giving a speech in Corey what does that actor's name? Corey Hawkins playing Kwami Ray a Stokely Carmichael. He gives the speech, and I feel like that sequence is fantastic the editing in that sequence is fantastic. There's something of Bachayev about the ways bike Lee brings that speech to life. That's that's vodka tive. I think as long as it's only once the plot sort of takes over the movie and the mecca nations of the clan start to to sort of take over the second half of the movie, I just sort of think it kind of gets away from itself and the comedy the comedy just gets to it. You feel like you're watching an episode of something that was on CBS, and like nineteen eighty three we gotta go. But last question. Yeah. I really liked the favourite. Why hasn't that has three actress nominations between the best than the supporting which is almost unheard of? That does not happen. Very often yet. It doesn't seem to have. Best picture momentum. I thought it was excellent. Do you see any chance that gets a little momentum over the next four weeks? No. Okay. I mean like the movie, but no. So would if you had to guess now because we didn't talk about Romney think Romo wince Roma's favourite.

Well, that does not meet every look, and I've never said there's one way to do something. This is why I do it. Right. This way I've been doing for four decades. Right. So I'd asked the answer. Now. What about deal time? Then. Laughing over. Do get out. But let me vibe with this actor right because why involve aid because it might even what we might need wanna do it. I mean, they might want. First of all, there's no guarantee they might wanna do the script. So for me, I have to get together. I with the talent. And then if we come to understanding on either side, then the agents, lawyers man, everybody can fight it out, but not not editing. I mean, there have been many people over the years who warned him. I don't because ages. You know, they got they got away, and they messed it up, and they ask these people years later. Wind you do. It wasn't me. Well, you never know in Hollywood that when they say that that's a Hollywood. No, sometimes right? Or you know, like the Hollywood I wanted to do it. Well, I've had numerous times where the person I wanted for the role. They wanna do it. I wanted Robert deniro the place how do right thing? He don't wanna do it while I didn't know that he should have done it. No. I didn't know that. He's anymore. That's true. I want Laurence Fishburne to play Ray Ryan, you don't wanna do it. Bill. Nunn was phenomenal. So you just don't know by did you I'm sorry now another conversation with narrow. You like to. Acis bike. No, I'm busy. So I liked script. But that's what he told you. Yeah. I was I was a man I love my guy. So I never knew that. There's there's many reasons why, you know, whether it's scheduled schedules big thing to can you start. You can't do as a year from now doing that. You know, so but J D C, Utah, JD drop, everything whatever you got. Is that right? Negotiate. It was almost like we're gonna start hostage. We're going to start working. We're just get into it. Like, I mean, it was like, obviously, it was obvious answer. Of course, I was going to do it and workout, you know, workout schedule when I was allowed to tell my agents. Yeah..

We can do anything black klansman was directed. By Spike, Lee. He dedicated the movie to Heather higher who was killed in August two thousand seventeen while protesting the unite the right rally in Charlottesville lease film was released a year after those horrifying events for Washington who you may have seen in the HBO series. Ballers this was not. His first appearance in a Spike Lee joint. He had a cameo in Malcolm X as a six year old when Lee directed his dad Denzel in the title role. Nonetheless, it turned out that evenly wasn't totally clear about the younger Washington's name as we discovered when we sat down with the star and the director of black klansman. Do you go by J D, if if that's easier because you know, some people call me, John, and my mother gets really upset I've kind of gotten used to it.

And and what happens a lot of times. They'll mention one of them. I and all the time. So I just just try to make sure to mention it's I just tried not to do. Yes. Yes. I appreciate that. So yeah. Yeah. What was the question? I'm curious what it's like if you could tell us a little bit. And I hope you don't mind the question growing up with that kind of glare. Or did you get protected from it by your mom, a village that raised me, my grandparents were heavy influence in my life. Got a lot of family North Carolina, new North Carolina. So, you know, my upbringing was I guess I had a nice healthy balance of this world and. A lot of time in North Carolina. La. So and it wasn't around. But this thing like people looking at you think his dad didn't care. I mean, I learned that fighting Carolina Cussing Carolina. Learn how to smoke weed Carolina, so important skills domain, every time, we go to Carolina be fish fries and cookouts and stuff like that. And just everybody getting together real-life. Yeah. And you play football. I did I did play football. That's going to say I was wondering if the family was like don't go into acting a hard life or whatever. And that's like going to football. Instead, somebody definitely that's the alternative. I I chose football. I love football rental cutting. Amazon reason I wanted to play. Now, you said, you know, you'd like DC music, but I don't know if you'd like the Redskins eagles, we call them the Washington team now. Well, Dan, Snyder's broken our hearts, but yes, I did grow up as a big fan of that team. Yeah. Well, well, we were rivals because I'm an eagles fan and Cunningham as a result. Now, I'm just saying you we can be peaceful about it. I mean, we are in the playoffs. I'm just saying you are you'd be over that kick. Yeah. That was somehow wherever you get the win. You just get the ones take the women's k so yeah. So yeah. So rental of have, you know, there's a guy that looked like me playing a position that I am not used to seeing a person that looks like me play. So I was inspired and wanted to play ball and your quarterback though. I was gonna say and I had to switch positions but middle school. I was so, yeah, I just found the love football and also myself becoming more independent or at least getting more recognition for my my work on the field. And so two separate myself from my family name. So I was like almost well keep going this feels pretty good. And then you say, but on the other hand, I'm gonna spike Kaci when they're when you were nine years old. Six six nine. I read upside down. Dyslexic. So that happens to me too. But he he saw early I guess. Yeah. Come on. Now, you decide to go back to do act. They won't really by chose. I got forced out of football had a torn achilles. And that's basically a career ending injury and sort of fell into it because of my injury and maybe for your brain. No. I don't know. But. These rules and these lines and my husband night is is definitely healthier concussion. You guys call me out like this, spike. I've had six though over the course of scares no about that. Right. And then they're the other ones that we remember, exactly. I mean, it's hard if you're a football fan. It's very ambivalent thing. Right because it's a beautiful game. And then you're watching people violent is crazy watching it. Now. The idea of it is beautiful. But the reality of it is very ugly. I mean, we've already heard President Obama savvy had boys. Do he would he would not let exactly and if I had a boy, I wouldn't either. Okay. So you give me a good segue there. Thank you Obama. You told Obama about what happened in Charlottesville? I find that extraordinary. Why it's just a strange coincidence. He's on the golf course. And. My some HAMAs on golf course Mazda. I mean, when you're on the golf course you turn your phone off. So knowing what was that like yours unhappy about it? What do you say say like, I said you happen? The shaw. Tonight total. You must have just looked at each other. I can only imagine I was. Upset watching that is a Saturday afternoon. So there shouldn't highlight highlights the highlights. Yeah. As David a pill. Call does the night that Friday night, those Tiki torch one of? They should.
"ron stallworth" Discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition
"Is that like it shows you how powerful ludicrous, and and just wild racism as a concept is because you know, you'll character in the movie. I mean, you you didn't even change your voice in the movie. You just have Ron calling the KKK and being like, let me tell you how much I hate the blacks. And they're like, we love you. It's almost like the racism blinded them to every possibility. The you know when when you were playing your character. And you're going to the story was was it hard for you to maintain that that level of being calm and happy whilst at the same time maintain that level of fear as well because Ron had both feedings at the same time. I had the honor of the character what he was going through during that time. I mean, he couldn't break. He always often talked about being on cases are detective being like an actor right cover. So he had to play the role. He said, he never changed his voice. But he just spoke the language the language, and we're seeing is really highlighted in this film. How generational it is these certain trigger words that he would use air that that would entice them and how generational that is. And you see it in the film. I'll spike tight it all together. We'll have in that the end of the film. You have a powerful seeing that we watched in that clip with Adam driver, who's phenomenal in the phone while you have a great cost of actors and two of you talking about the clan, and in this film. There's a lot of people wearing clan. Hoods? And I know that you guys are actors. But was there a moment when you're sitting on set, and you look around you and you like what am I doing here? I gotta say during the banquet scene. I had to call Ron stallworth after that day. And I thanked him. I think for the bottom, my heart. How her role was during the investigation there were no cross burnings? There were a terrorist act or violence on on the community. I think that's mission accomplished that's right road. But I told them like I I really appreciate what you did. Because he was looking death in is like they could've killed him buried him. He had the law inside a black, man. A black detective in Colorado Springs, seventy the law and his side face to face with David Duke. Right. Those were very hard very hard seeing those are very difficult days. But because of our commander because of Spike Lee, we felt so comfortable and free to explore that because we know what we're doing is a part of the storytelling that's going to be trolled, truthfully. Right because spike Lee's, a master cinematic tone when when you look at how the story ties into what America's going through today. You can't you can't ignore it. Because the film ends in a really powerful, I won't tell you the story. Ends. But the end of the film has the news clippings from Charlottesville, and you see that horrible scene Platt again. And I remember sitting in the cinema with people, and nobody moved everyone was shaken by its if someone hasn't watched the movie of even people have what would what message would you hope they take away from this film that the I think the answer to peace with the hope the hope lies and inclusion everybody here that's looked like we all are different. We all come from different spaces and backgrounds, but it's going to take us to come together. And I think the film lends itself to that kind of hope because the mission was accomplished because of this not just this black detectable white officers that helped him in the system into this mission. So it's gonna take inclusion it's amazing, man. Good. Good. I'm hoping to see after that clansman is in selected animated be the end digital John. David washington.
"ron stallworth" Discussed on The Frame
"The script was written. And then join until call me up and asked him to do it. And so bass when Mike co writer, Kevin Wilma, an I we wrote the script, and it became very obvious to Kevin nine. Only had to do is connect the pass the present that the story Ron store with that was the seventies. So we just did everything we could and that's im- for the the Charlottesville, you know, act of American homegrown terrorism took place. So that's what we knew he had to do at the connect the pass with the president. So people who don't know the story of Ron stallworth, and what he was able to do in the small police department in Colorado. How do you hope they see the world differently or pre sheet who and he did the audience the audience that doesn't know Ron stallworth story before this movie, we won't be honest. I really don't answer. Those those away questions, you know, I stopped doing that two decades ago. In reason is though I specked always tell too much to tell them what they should think, you know, leaving on it. Did you know they tell me by trying? I really try not to say the take this movie is Bob Lobamba horn asking about Susan, bro. Susan, bro is mother of Heather higher who was killed murder murdered a year before this movie came out, the reason that what happened to Heather has struck a chord is because we know that what she did is a chief -able, we don't all have to die. We don't all have to sacrifice our lives. They tried to kill my child to shut her up. Well, guess what you just magnified her. Ask you about Susan, bro. And what she meant to this film. And what it meant to ask. Her permission to be able to use her daughter's life as an inspiration for how people can change the world. Now's one of the most Horace phone calls of had to make in the while. I was not gonna disrespect head the higher or her mother buying clued in had, you know, without permission from his Susan, bro. Is all could because how can you knew you trying to give condolences for what can you say? You know, her daughter just got murdered in a an act of America homegrown terrorism. And so I did that and deny, you know, ask for permission her blessing. I'm still very grateful. Mrs broder giving permission where were you in production? When Charlottesville happened shells, August eleventh and we start shooting to resort filming to begin September. How did it change the film at all? Obviously, you changed the coda. But how did it change the movie or making when I saw that? I said this is my stolen CNN last saw age oranges perplexing inability to denounce eight good people on both sides yet. I I mean that's going to go on his grave. And then the surprise was I didn't know David Duke was there to my research. Judy say guess, what's by communist us? What we have funded David Duke speaking, I said what I not know us there Charlottesville in Charlottesville. So you have to- for grace gives a magnificent performance of him. And then we see the real they would do NFL. I mean, I it has your question, sir. Charlottesville debt foot end is why everytime. I've seen this film. People sit. The film in silence for minutes just stunt that would not have happened without the KOTA. It's easy to look at some of the characters in this film, especially people like David Duke or local Klan members that are being investigated and say, they're numskulls they're idiots. They're clowns whatever they are. And they might be all those things that doesn't mean they're not dangerous. I want to ask about the tone of the film on a play you something that John David Washington who plays Ron stalwart said to us about what he thought the tone of the film needed to be in. Why it was important to get it? Right. I didn't look at it as a calm..

Thought it was so good better. Oh, yes. Yes. Omitting crazy rich. Aw, come on how much hard drugs, you they give you another hospital on drugs. But I still stands. Oh, I was disappointed to see that black clansmen since we talked to Ron stallworth, Beth El synagogue, and Adam driver, he got nominated for that. I don't see that. They want anything. I'm surprised. Oh, yeah. It was funny. I I didn't connect the dots right away. The gentleman that was up for black klansman, Denzel, Washington, son. It is. Yeah kidding. Oh my gosh. Google him right now. My goodness. Yeah. That's Denzel, son engines. I was there supporting them, Denzel. Oh, yes. I saw when he. I see. Oh, I was loving Denzel too because I guess some over zealous. Fan went up to him like ran up to him kind of ambushed and was like can I get a picture and before Denzel even responded, wrapped his arm around Denzel and got his camera like goddess selfie, and Denzel goes, wait a minute before you before you take a picture of someone you should wait for their response.
