"stiller" Discussed on The Jim Brockmire Podcast
"Much and so i had no choice but to hope that is gonna work out. You mentioned that first round of the playoffs. You guys had the bad fortune of running into atlanta hawks and trae young my goodness what a serious run he had so. You're my big question though. Who's haircut would you say is more embarrassing. Cameron diaz in the semen hair seen from something about mary or trae young. Who's got a stupider head of hair. I'm no one to speak is incredibly challenged in that way. I'm not gonna speak to trace hair style choice you know. He's he's an incredibly talented young men. My feeling on that chant was this was sort of the spontaneous explosion of frustration of fifteen thousand fans all of a sudden in an arena for the first time in whatever it is a year and a half people out of their houses it was almost a felt aber in a way it was almost like people were just freaking out definitely can happen so quickly like so quickly. I mean it wasn't like four games in it was like during the first game but that's true about the fuck trae young chan. But do you know that with with. The trae is balding chant. This is true. They actually distributed the garden distributed flyers saying hey everybody made fun trays bald head. They really did do that. They suggested that they chant trays balding. That's awful. That's that's not fair at all. And he's so talented and he drives you so crazy that it takes people to a place like what can i. What can i say this. It's this frustration. But i mean there's really just tribute to how much he drove knicks fans crazy and i had to look inward and say to myself. Why am i feeling these feelings towards this young man who's doing nothing but serving his. I mean look. He did the little. Like ooh the chili thing. Where he himself that really. That really got me. It likes to point where he hits the three point shot from. That's pretty annoying too. I mean he's allowed to do that stuff because he delivered. But i think he enjoyed doing that to garden fans and what. I did think after the first time. When i heard the train chant was and then it didn't make sense to me why he might start taunting the fans back. If you're thousand people saying that to you. I was in a celebrity softball game in janki stadium about twenty years ago and i don't know how i ended up there but i ended up in right field and they started booing me from the right field bleachers. Also really for nothing. I didn't do not for your for your play on the field. No i came out. And then i of course that affected my game my incredibly by level softball skills in right field and it felt awful to have people and if you've ever been booed i don't know that i have. It's the worst feeling to. I know that. I have. Because i've heard it on the recording of the games but i'm almost always so blackout drunk. I don't actually recall it probably gift because it does really affect you. And i spent the whole softball game trying to figure out why they were booing me started going through my career going through even like just what i've done in the game previously which was not much so i could you know understand trade really wanting to stick it to knicks fans. But that's horrible. Walkout ball field. They start to bully amelia big celebrity. Or at least according to chigney. You are and it'd be like you know like an athlete making a cameo in one of your movie like we're going to get i'm gonna ask about brett farve a little bit but just getting booed immediately everybody on saturday in one of those things where. There's no real ask somebody about this. Oh they always boo anybody. Who's in right field and yankee stadium. That can't be true guys lying to you like somebody saying boy. Our numbers on this show material. Oh no every. That's how every every crowd reacts as they give it a terrible score. I'm a new yorker tune. If i had this fellow sensitively betrayal or something but ultimately i never played another celebrity softball game again. We'll let let's talk about your career now because maybe maybe they booed you're based on that. Maybe they didn't send me your your stats. I sent him your imdb page. But ever you you hollywood types call it you know what i noticed would jumped off the page to me. The last time that said knicks were in the conference. Finals was the same year that you were in a music video for the band limp biscuit. So now what's it like knowing that you and your favorite team both equally equally far away from your p. counters that i do look at that as a peak moment. Actually because i think we did that limp biscuit video there was one. We were shooting zoom. We actually on the set of zuma under and we did it. I think it'll lunch hour during the time piece. I look at his time piece in memory of time when things were. Yeah that was long time. Listen i have a theory about that. Because you video appearance i think it might actually curse the knicks. She has a name for that. But what would you call that. Again the fred durst curse the fred durst curse. You believe there might be some truth to the fred durst curse because they boy after that. You're saying that my appearance in the video somehow affected the knicks fortunes in the playoffs. When you say it out. And i like that. It does sound insane stupid but listen. There's nothing to be embarrassed about because that time in history was messy for everybody rap. Rock is something we all knowledge that we did not do enough to prevent in the early two thousand slot like the iraq war. I agree. I take full responsibility for my part in that. Yes some are more complicit than others like you you're kinda the ari fleischer of rap rock. Oh my god don't say that's the that that hurts. Unlike you been my head in the sand. I speak the truth about things anyway looking at this said. Imdb you actually made a sports movie. Bent dodgeball yes. I'm going to guess that growing up. The game dodgeball. Was not that much fun for you. I mean correct me. If i'm wrong but you don't seem like you with a popular athletic here. You see more like the frightened nerd. Curled up in the corner. Trying to avoid headshots was that we are experiencing. Did that lead you to this film did lead to your whole career as an actor that experience you know. I don't know if i was the frightened ner inside i was the frightened outside. I was just a nerd. I think the frightening part was. I tried to hide it. Somehow i was sort of like a middle ground person where i wasn't totally a nerd but it definitely wasn't popular and i was a little bit awkward. I bad skin. I think my frustration angered come out dodgeball games and probably i would go in with this sort of chip on my shoulder. I think being bullied in that ship is a necessary part of anybody and i did. We did have these thoat dodgeball games. When i was in fourth grade fifth grade i remember that being a very dicey thing because you were playing girls and boys and everybody was these kids. Were all like hormonally just bursting at the seams and definitely a very aggressive sport i think was on the receiving end and was also probably too aggressive. Twos dodgeball player. We had the co. Ed dodgeball to taste something. It was traumatic. But it spurred me on. If i don't have a little timmy. Missionary pulling down my gym shorts in seventh grade exposing my bare testicles to the entire class boys and girls. I don't know how to develop the drive to become the man i am today. I mean every success. I have been me saying. Hey look at me now world. I got pubic talented periods. Now veritable tumbleweed proficiency. Some kind of say fuck you to the world with like Lima cubes. I'm ben stiller when me my bush keeps.
Biden Signs $1.9 Trillion American Rescue Plan Into Law
"I'm Chris Foster the Democrats coronavirus, financial relief and stimulus plan to sign into law by President Biden. Historic legislation is about rebuilding the backbone of this country on giving people this nation working people middle class folks, people built the country of fighting chance. Nearly $2 trillion American rescue plan passed with precisely zero Republican support in the House or the Senate. Presented a plan at the White House. The president found two beef two small so Democrats with their new majorities in the House and Senate. Go it alone, passing the first bill dividing presidency. Well, they really wanted was to find a way to go. Sure in their liberal progressive pay everybody built in Scott's Republican senator from South Carolina. We spoke to him yesterday. Unfortunately, they were able to succeed at that, but hopefully we'll have a chance to push back on it. It is one of the most ridiculous pieces of legislation that has so little to do with covert relief and everything to do with the progressive wish list. I mean, you could have these calls for bipartisanship, but in the end, they really they just needed Joe Manchin and other centrist Democrats, right? Absolutely. When you look at what they've done, they were able to Tonto. I don't want to go or buy off, but they were able to negotiate with the mansion. To lower the unemployment from 400 to 300, But then they extended it. The September said. In a different way, I believe what we sit what we saw happen. There was the are now paying people to stay home even longer, Not through June or July. But now through September. And interestingly enough, Chris the unemployment rate has gone down, not up. We had 379,000 new jobs added to the economy. The last thing we need to do is extend the unemployment benefits until September, when in fact the recovery as fragile as it is. Continues. Center. Ah, lot of Americans are very happy about are going to be very happy about this film, including some of your constituents. South Carolina's got something like the 10th highest poverty rate in the country and a lot of people. Gonna be very happy to get this child tax credit and getting essentially huge races in their take home pay. What do you tell them? Well, Chris, this is this is a baby. Well, honestly, the road to socialism starts with one step. And the bottom line is that what we're looking at here is not paying people for increased production, not paying people for increased challenges that were brought on by the government. They're simply making this into Progressive approach, ushering in the first few steps of socialism, and that is a huge challenge. A new study shows that all the covert stimulus caused each American $17,000. That That means that we're simply pushing ourselves in the wrong direction with these resource is being put out there. But, yeah, people like money. There's no question about that. But when they understand that they have to pay it back. You like it less when you add interest on top of that they like it even less. And when they understand that they may be compromising the future of the next generation of Americans by spending money today that we don't have that we have to borrow from China. That the bad thing for every single American in every single American child that we have the generations to come will face an avalanche of debt unnecessarily. So because of $2 trillion under the guise of covert relief, when, in fact, it's social policy that transforms the American economy. And now this, I mean, look, it's only got through because of budget reconciliation. We're spending bills. Be passed with 50 votes and no filibuster right now. Other than spending bills are Democrat. Is this a last gasp for them? Or are they gonna get anything through their voting rights bill The House passed this week and infrastructure playing this gun legislation pending If they can't If they can't get any GOP votes on anything. Might they just throw their hands up and say Fine? We're killing the filibuster. Everything needs 50 votes. Way I watched your mansion trying to walk through that minefield on Sunday, and the truth of the matter is what he said Woz that he is willing to make the filibuster harder to use that is very dangerous. Stiller Buster conversation is a slippery slope. We know that you give the Democrats inch They want a mile, and that's not good for the American people. And frankly, the agenda of the left is so radical that the center right country that we still have Is going to have an allergic reaction to the medicine brought to the table. And that may be very good for us in 2022, prayerfully and 2024, But Maurin importantly, it is just bad policy and the stench of it will, I think made people noxious. The more we see the thought that we're going to give a 16 year old the rights of vote because they believe they do better with younger people that we do doesn't sound like they're looking for a way to level the playing field. The thought that they want to nationalize elections. We should be looking for ways to limit Mail in ballots, not expand mail in ballots. We should be looking for ways to expand voter. I d not eliminate voter I d. So what they're trying to do is position this country not to recover from their lurch and then leaked to the far far far left. Those are dangerous position in their HR one. And you and I both know that we're gonna have to fight tooth and nail to protect the second Amendment. We are in for that fight. We're in it to win it. We will, because America was founded on the concept that we must be. We must have. The resource is in the arms necessary to defend ourselves, period. And that must stand and that is one of the things that's one of the reasons we should be very thankful for our Constitution, and especially
Republican Congressman vs. David C. Smalley
"Let's jump straight in. Because i want to bring our guest in on the conversation immediately. He's a former congressman from virginia's fifth district he's now nc are is chief strategist and author of bigfoot. It's complicated which. I really hope we have time to get into and i really hope. He's still a republican. Let's find out join me in welcoming denver riggleman to the show. Thanks for joining me today. Sir thanks for having me sir. Oh well you heard that with us for the first time it just came out moments ago. What are your thoughts. So i'd like to state as we start here. The president trump reid tweeted a few months ago that the joe biden. Kill seal team six. I think god you're right. No you know. That's and that's what i was when i was listening to that speech after what i heard Down near the white house right before the siege on the capital. In fact that i've been in. Congress have been in the house. And i knew some of those people that spoke like madison call or mo brooks of talked to many times Don jr. meant obviously rudy giuliani I've met obviously and and what i really saw. Their david was absolute Language to incite really. It happened over the months and months and to hear that right now. My my first reaction is not really a politician but as an intelligence officer and something counter-terrorism like somebody's very afraid of the senate trial for impeachment. I thought the same thing Michael came in a few seconds in michael goes. Looks like a hostage video like he looks like he like. It's not really his words. He just feels the need to say these things he had to. I mean you know. The thing is is that his his term does end. I know that there are some people that are still listening to pastures and trucks talking about biblical prophecy that president trump is right now hidden a bunker and mike. Flynn is going to be the next vice president but by the way that's true. I just saw this video two days ago. One hundred eighty five thousand likes david on a facebook video from some dude in a truck saying that you know he's a pastor and had biblical prophecy and he just went through the whole cunanan thing and i just shaking my head about the ridiculousness out there. But he still wants to keep his brand to. He's got to make money. And how's he going to do that. And i think there's a lot of things you need to worry about. And that speech was the copa. That was so too late and show not anything that he said before that very hard to believe men. You're spot on. I mean. I i you know about damn time is the first reaction and then does he even believe the stuff he's saying is the second reaction So late you know so late to the party So that so that my listeners have a little bit background as to why this conversation between the two of us is so important You know you're you're only a former congressman because apparently you weren't conservative enough for your district right you. You lost to someone who was far more conservative and on top of that. I've seen you. I've seen pictures. Anyway of you officiating. Same sex wedding so you don't sound very republican the to us sir. What's going what's going on over there. Why are you so open minded and logical. You know when iran. You know. i've only been. I don't know people know this about me. I was i was a ceo. sell my company in two thousand twelve doing counterterrorism and counterintelligence work. Could you know not. Only that i can. I can go back in time. If i told you the crazy stuff. I've done like we mission plan. The first bombing runs death in afghanistan for nine eleven. that was our squadron. It was me Oman training omanis on. F16 sixteen operations in two thousand and ninety nine. I was on. The romanian serbian border for operation. Allied for trying to stop ethnic cleansing. I've had a hell of a life and that's just the beginning counter idea. Actually our team that was tracking sulejmani and two thousand six two thousand seven so when people saw my resume like this son of a gun never been in politics before when i ran as a republican i was asked to because the my predecessor had to resign because of alcoholism. Which is a little ironic. Since i'm going to stiller. I one on accident one by one. Vote against a christian. Dominion est They called me a baby killing sodomite But i thought if if practicality and i was a good guy team player like in my military days voted independently when i had to I thought i would see that. I care about people more than the career. Because i didn't need the paycheck and sadly after the same sex wedding david conspiracy theory started about me that i was working for soros to turn children into alternative lifestyles by funding schools. To teach that doug gay sex was okay. And that i really started saying cunanan was turning and blossom and this was back in twenty nineteen and since my background is in you tracking isis and al qaeda and disinformation and radicals. I said this also looks like that. We have almost the same type of thing here. We have people that are using language of dehumanisation and antisemitic. Tropes to go after people. And you know it's like a lot my book right. It's about bigfoot belief systems and take over people's lives so really been a hell of a time for me. I never thought that My family we get death threats You know i never you know. I never thought that. I can tell you this. Now that somebody would remove the lug nuts are in them all up on my right front tire at a rally where i came out and felt funny and took it to a shop and look like they tried to hurt me pretty bad so this has been one of my life has been like for the past two years david. And guess what athem you know. This is what they want to bring it. Bring it because i got fifty acres of distillery and i'm a second amendment guy and but i'm also a free thinker and pretty socially libertarian. So i don't know where. I fit bud
Which are the best songs on Bruce Springsteen's Greatest Hits?
"So there are eighteen songs on greatest hits cd you want to just go through them in order and then you talk about whether you think it's a good song or not and then you said you have some addition a better not on this list that i would include. Yes looking at number one born to run. Obviously that's a first ballot right. Everybody acknowledges that went when you think of for springsteen and the music videos era. This one didn't have like one of those choreographed music videos but it was one of those concert video and i will say there's things about music are especially likable to me. I'm a big sent guy which doesn't use a lot of sense except for dancing in the dark has a lot of it which is probably why. It's one of my favorite songs his. I'm big on piano. And i'm big on horns. So born and ryan has a big horn section of the great clarence clemenceau. Yeah we're gonna run became on the radio. I wouldn't immediately change it. I bled it at least get through a couple of seconds before i said okay. I've had enough of that even before this recent awakening you would have said. Oh yeah. I knew the song. It would've been one of the five that i would given you as an original bruce springsteen number next to read thunder road is a song that resp- eurest adore. But i don't know if it says big and the general population. What do you think i. I had not really been familiar with the song until after we had our discussions. Yeah i do remember it coming on like radio back. In the olden days on classic rock and the ad like that it would get played every once in a while. But i never really paid attention to it. So once we started having our bruce discussions as you force fit it into how many episodes yes i did. Listen to it a little bit more. And i it kind of fits into the born to run that. That's one of the things about bruce springsteen that i don't like yeah he has acdc syndrome okay. We're a lot of his song. Sound almost exactly the same guy now. The musical arrangements don't necessarily sound that way. They will usually have some kind of piano. They will usually have some kind of porn section. For which is which i like. Yeah but you know what it is. It's his voice. His voice brings the band but only in certain songs. There's some songs for. He's entirely understandable. And then there's other times where it's nonstop own. He's basically doing fake. Bruce springsteen from the ben stiller show which was a great show by the way won't be wing. Linda would agree with you that his i don't understand what he say and he has said. It's like a hard mumble that somebody is doing while they're on the toilet trying to push one out. That is that he asked him to make. I've just lost my not necessarily that. That's always a bad thing. Don't forget all of the music surrounding the horrible. Singing is enjoyable. One of the questions. I ask in every week. Bruce does mary get in the car. So have you listened to the song enough to answer that question. I would need to actually read the lyrics because they are so unintelligible so near basically telling me that it's a song about people running away. Yeah and there at the end of it. There's a decision to be made or the girlfriend is deciding. She's going to run away. With bruce right kind of like you know the end of inception when the puppets that's exactly what it is so was that a yea or nay. Oh thunder road. Yeah when we go through this list. There's going to be very few that i would say. Don't count okay. not necessarily that. I think they're great song. But they are acknowledged consensus hits among just a masses. When i listened to that song it's so similar to born to run. I almost have a hard time separating. They almost feel like one really long song. And they're both from the same album and i think that was the theme. He was going through all right badlands. I like that one. I want to be rich for. Expend king teen is a sci-fi till he rules again another one that has really difficult lurks to understand. But i love the dignity. Ding ding ding again piano. I love really hard said piano music. Which is why. Even though bruce hornsby only has like three they are in great. Three one of the things that bruce wanted from the beginning and he still does is. He has a piano player and a keyboard player onstage with him. So you have the view cynth- and piano yes classical piano. That's that's really good combines. Both things that are really enjoy music. If you can get them both going at the same time. I like giant mashes of different kinds of sounds which is one of the reasons why i was drawn to wrap so much because rap samples so many different things at once inside a one song to a lot of people that would just sound like noise and are just a mess. I me i don't know how my brain processes things. But i love that kind of chaos within a song jokin. Good one of the other things as a sports fan when he does. Badlands live the fans. They start chanting almost like if you're in a soccer match so the river was a big hit. Yes buying knowledge that one. Although it's an extremely long song difficult to get all the way through depressing yes it. A lot of these songs are about people down on their luck yet. Town is closing the mill down. And i don't know if we're going to survive as a couple all you know. Is it time to budd dwyer off ourselves or should we go somewhere else. Yeah they all have that similar. Theme jon stewart. Talked about it that. When you listen to bruce springsteen you're no longer just the loser loser in an epic tale. Brian one of my favorite stories about the river. Think of his at the national show and someone held up a sign. Saying it's my nineteenth birthday. Will you play the river. And there's the line for my nineteenth birthday got a union card and a wedding coat. Burma i gotta union. And we're going do not ever heard the song just because adventures birthday. This is not a song. You play to celebrate Any and he was gonna play it anyway right every concert. There's a certain group of songs the river. Wow really yeah. I would think if you're going to pay that much money to go. See bruce springsteen he would understand okay. There is at least ten or fifteen off of my greatest hits that i know i need to give to the masses or else they are gonna revolt. Always do hide the fans. Think of that like Like if you go to springsteen concert and he doesn't do born to run. Do you feel disappointed. You've been like thirty concerts. So would know sam lison one of our poker buddies and one of our friends our podcast. He would gladly give a born to run to hear a different song. And my point is every show is someone's first show. And if you go to your first. Bruce springsteen show and he does it do born to rhyme. You're going to go. What the hell.
40,000 airline workers brace for mass layoffs
"About 40,000 airline workers are facing lay off tomorrow unless Congress comes up with a miracle. A clause for the $25 billion. A package at the beginning of the pandemic prevented them from laying off workers, but that expires tomorrow. Congress has been considering a second round of airline aid for weeks, but it's hung up in the debate over a larger national relief package. Ohio Democratic Congressman Tim Ryan on the House Democrats latest coffer of 2.2 trillion on. That plan would revive a $600 per week jobless benefit and send a second round of $1200 direct payments to most individuals. Is this the moment for compromise with Republicans? Democrats? God, I hope so. I mean, when you see the rates of people who are worried about, you know, paying their bills, bankruptcy, losing their home, you know, evictions. Stiller out there small businesses, restaurants. Now is the time. I mean, if we can't do it now, it's not gonna happen. And, you know, now we're talking into November. I think we're gonna lose a lot of businesses that will never come back. We have to act now. Final question to some practical matter. Procedurally speaking, if it doesn't get on a fiscal stimulus doesn't get done before the November 3rd election is December 11th and next cliff, so to speak, when we could see stimulus moving People are trying to figure out when that stimulus is going when that is going to come on the calendar, my history and 18 years in Congress is that it goes up right to the deadline, so I would say Yeah, I would be probably early December. We don't go back till after the election. Then you have Thanksgiving and then a couple weeks in early December, so that would make the most sense. But I will get it done now because the ramifications when we're talking about December 11th as opposed to October 11th are significant for millions of people who will be really, really hurt by this.

We had him about three years ago to talk about all things like. noninvasive light Oh and we want to talk about his new book. Now, it's called the pro aging playbook Dr Frank is he works with lots of celebrities, and he's to discreet to name all of them and he also consulted lots of different big brands and not only is he fabulous? He is a board certified dermatologist though, but he's also clinical assistant professor at the icon. It can. Oh, God, Dr Frank Don't Kill Me School of. Medicine. At Mount, Sinai welcome Dr Frank. Dr Frank. You are one of the busiest Durham's out there. You've got a lot of celebrity clients. You've got a very big practice. You're always doing TV appearances. You you're a very big on TIKTOK. We know this. Okay. You're not doing your take type performances. Why did you decide that you needed to write another book I? mean, that's big. Endeavor. Temporary Insanity. I coned wrote a book nineteen years ago when there were these new things that were experimental called. In. Stiller. And after the work out like okay. And I check off the box to do that again. But I wrote a second book because the had an idea to go against the grain a little bit and write about something that people would expect the lease from a beauty book and certainly one from Cosmetic Dermatology book, and that is hopefully with pro aging playbook is all about. All. Right. So I WANNA to talk about the title, the title when you told me the title I kind of like like I I, got like a like you definitely caught me off guard, but the title pro aging playbook because there's been a lot of discussion about the term Teijin. The past couple of years, we had Michelle Leon, the editor in chief of allure about a year and a half ago, and she put a huge stake in the ground. By saying, we are banning the term anti-aging. She wants to ditch entirely in the background, a lot of press, and you're going a step further. Further and you're saying pro aging. What does pro aging mean while it? Basically a backlash to the negative stigma that generations of people have had toward agent and I think a lot of it is just one big marketing ploy, the term anti-aging. The fact that aging is a bad thing and we have to inject laser moisturizers. Serum is extra dies Diet, get back to a younger state and to me the biggest events I've seen in my field is not injectables. Lasers is in the outlook in perspective we have towards beauty now, which I think is a very positive thing and it can be empowering. Up The audience out there, that has not gotten over the stigma. That is what I'm trying to achieve in the pro aging label and one that I don't think you'd expect from someone like, Ray.

"stiller" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist
"Been a few weeks since we've had one because frankly we can't get into rooms with people and sit down and talk the way we usually do for our Sunday conversations but this week we have a special treat for you the Great Ben Stiller. Who has been on this podcast before and who has been a guest for interviews on Sunday today. We wanted to talk to him about his father. The late Jerry Stiller the late great Jerry Stiller the late hysterical Jerry Stiller who you probably know by now passed away at the age of ninety two just a few days ago. Ben Was Very Gracious. He said Yeah. I'd love to come on and talk about my dad. Ben Doesn't have a movie to promote. Didn't WanNa talk about charity or anything else he said. Can We talk about my dad? And of course the answer was yes so the way this went was. I walked across the driveway to my garage. Sat Down we set up a camera. You'll see the full interview on Sunday today this weekend on NBC. And I talked to him into a screen. Basically on zoom. Like you've been talking to people or maybe doing your job so we got together just to talk about his POPs. Of course his DAD got. Its start in comedy with an Mira who would become his wife. And Mira's Ben Stiller's mother they were known as Stiller and Mir they appeared on Johnny Carson. They appeared on the Ed Sullivan. Show many many times one of the great early comedy acts of the nineteen fifties and sixties and of course. Jerry had a resurgence when he came back in the nineties. As George Castanza's father on Seinfeld and Ben Talks about. What a rebirth that was in Jerry. Stiller career was a really sweet conversation. Ben. Stiller's at home. I'm at home. Just two guys talking to over zoom about the late great Jerry Stiller. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Ben Stiller. Right now on the Sunday. Sit down. Podcast ben thanks so much for doing this night. I really appreciate you taking the time we we're GONNA get together about a week ago and little did I know that Our conversation interrupted by such sad news. How are you doing asking your father? thanks really done okay. You know. It's it's sad sad when you lose a parent And he was a great guy. I do feel very fortunate You know right now this time that we were able to be together. There's so many people who are not able to be with loved ones and losing them and not being able to have that connection at end. I was fortunate the could be at home. So I really grateful for that But you know. He was a kind of replaceable person. Is it a strange thing? Have to imagine that the entire country is served grieving. And you're dealing with this public grieving and people saying that adults is to you and why people like me want to talk to you about it when for you. It's your dad. It's a very personal thing. It's not like that yeah. I say it's been really heart warming to see how much he touched people. How beloved by people he was. I knew that but you know really when something like this happens you really feel it and And I know that for him. He loved doing what he did and he loved connecting with people and I know this would have made him feel great. You know that as a kid from the lower east side Grew up very poor during the depression. It was his dream to be in show business to be a comedian. I mean he really worked hard for it so I think for him. All of his success was sort of like he kind of he took it in. He never saw him. He was never blase about it. He never took it for granted. I think he was always that kid who You know grew up really Not necessarily knowing where their where they were going to be living in the next few months and moved the thirteen or fourteen times news. A Kid and his dad was a bus driver. They never you know they. It was tough so this was all kind of a dream for new really. Yeah I don't think most people realize that because he came into their lives either Seinfeld King of Queens or with Stiller Mirror but his personal story is incredible Incredibly Humble Beginnings served in the army during World War. Two the guy has degrade American story for sure. I mean you know is a Jewish kid from the lower east side Who is taking the law? Bill shows? We'd see Eddie Cantor in or the Morris brothers and he wanted to do that. You wanted to be Be Funny and And he followed that. His parents didn't have any connection with show. Business wasn't the Happiest House. All there's a lot of fighting when he was a kid in when he was sixteen he He kind of lied about his age when he joined the army. I think because he wanted to both patriotic and he also wanted to kind of figure out a way forward in this life and so he got the GI bill. When you is a funny story he. He wrote a book by the way about his life which I have here Mary to laughter that he spent a lot of time on all these stories in there and one of the stories when he was in the army he played football on his intramural team. In Italy there were occupying army in Italy. And there was this one. Mp That was not nice to him and had said some kind of the mean antisemitic. Things as being a guy in the army that time. There's lots of segregation. There was no it was it was complicated and he got to play. This guy knows the ball game at Emmanuel Stadium in Caserta Italy which was as big stadium and this. Mp was playing against him and he got to tackle him and he was so you know had so much inside of him. Guy Downey broken ankle. Entire Stadium cheered when he went off at. The end of the game was eighty eight. They're chanting within. And I just think about that because I think he was so in realized he was so quiet and and sweet But underneath he this you know a a lot of I think You know he was kind of like this volcano underneath that had a lot of motion. And that would come out on on. Seinfeld these characters but it never really came out real life And so it was SORTA like his outlet. Thank in house himself unless he was playing football incident. T the two times SEINFELD FOOTBALL GAMES DURING WORLD WAR. Two so has he been from World War Two GI bill to a life in show business. Because that's a wildly for someone. Who has you say had no connection? Show-business didn't have errands in the business. How did we get? I think it was pure will drives He went to Syracuse. 'cause he knew they had a theater program there on the GI bill and he had a teacher there named Sawyer. Faulk that That he felt that blamed him. I think and Was a tough teacher. But he Supported him and put them in plays at Syracuse and reviews and then he went out and tried to get work. You know like the way actors would in the fifties In the end up at In Chicago at the State Fair Railway Fair where he got a job a pony express show and got a job south or cinnabon expression forces and he said of course you know kid from natural and got and from then he got you know you got a pardon another. Play a little part. And then he just went to the orchestra making the rounds with you know people like John Cavity is in You know Other actors that time would go and You know just give the picture John Agent and say hey you know think about me for Martin they get a call and he just kept on working at met my mom that way and they fell in love and Lipton. Little apartment in the village and then weren't making any. We're starving for for a long time. And my dad had this idea to do a comedy.

Deborah Treisman Reads David Foster Wallace
"Chosen a story to read and I asked listeners to submit questions for me to discuss through our twitter and facebook pages. The story I've chosen is good. People by David Foster Wallace which was published in the New Yorker in January of two thousand seven all the different angles ways. They come at the decision together did not ever included the word for had he wants said. It avowed that he did love her. Love Cherry Fisher then it all would have been transformed. It would not be a different stance or angle but a difference in the very thing. They were praying deciding on together. I chose a story in part because it was the last piece that I worked on with David Foster Wallace before his death in two thousand eight and because our correspondence about the story stayed very vividly in my memory and came to mind when he died. The story was eventually part of the Pale King. David Foster Wallace's posthumous novel which was published in. Two thousand eleven at the time that he sent it to me in December of two thousand six. Though I'm not sure that he knew it was going to end up as part of the novel he was working on. It may have been a separate story then or it might have been an outtake that he wasn't planning to include in his note to me. He identified it as a short fiction. Submission the fact. The story is in a sensory thinking of Hemingway's nineteen twenty seven story hills like white. Elephants also makes me suspect that it was first written as a self contained piece. In Wallace's story and in Hemingway's a young couple for would not be convenient to have a baby talk awkwardly around the idea of abortion without ever using the word in the Wallace Story. Unlike in the Hemingway. The young couple are devout Christians who have to grapple with the concept from that point of view as well as you will hear. I'll be talking some more after the story but now here's good. People by David Foster Wallace good people. They were up on a picnic table at the park by the lake by the edge of Lake with part of a down tree in the shallows half hidden by the Bank Lane Dean junior and his girlfriend both in blue jeans and button up shirts. They sat up on the tables top portion and had their shoes on the bench part that people sat on a picnic or fellowship together and carefree times it gone to different high schools but the same junior college where they had met in campus ministries. It was springtime and the parks grass was very green in the air suffused with honeysuckle and lilacs. Both which was almost too much. There were bees and the angle of the sun made the water of the shallows. Look dark there had been more storms that week with some down trees in the sound of chainsaws all up and down. His parents street their postures on the picnic table. We're both the same forward kind with their shoulders rounded and elbows on their knees in this position the girl rocked slightly and once put her face in her hands but she was not crying. Lane was very still an immobile and looking past the bank at the down tree in the shallows and it's ball of exposed roots going all directions and the trees cloud of branches all half in the water. The only other individual nearby was dozen space tables away by himself standing upright looking at the torn up hole in the ground. There were the tree gone over. It was still early at an all. The shadows wheeling right and shortening. The girl were thin old checked cotton shirt with pro coloured snaps with the long sleeves down and always smelled very good and clean like someone you could trust and care about. Even if you weren't in Love Lane. Dean had liked the smell of her right away. His mother called her down to Earth and liked her thought she was good people. You could tell she made this evident in little ways the shallow slapped from different directions at the tree as if almost teething on it sometimes when alone and thinking or struggling to turn a matter over to Jesus Christ in prayer he would find himself putting his fist in his palm and turning it slightly as if still playing and pounding his glove to stay sharp and alert and center. He did not do this now. It will be cruel and indecent to do this now. The older individual stood beside his picnic table. He was added but not sitting unlooked also out of place in a suit coat or jacket and the kind of men's hat lanes grandfather wore and photos as a young insurance man. He appeared to be looking across the lake. If he moved lane. Didn't see it. He looked more like a picture than a man. There were not any ducks in view. One thing lane did was reassure her again that he'd go with her and be there with her. It was one of the few safer decent things he could really say the second time. He said it again now. She shook her head and laughed in an unhappy way. That was more just air out her nose. Her real life was different where he be was the waiting room. She said that he'd be thinking about her and feeling bad for her. She knew but he couldn't be in there with her. This was so obviously true that he felt like a nanny that he'd kept on about it and now knew what she thought. Every time he went. Set it it hadn't brought her comfort or ease the burden at all the worse. He felt the stiller. He sat the whole thing felt balanced on a knife or wire if he moved to put his arm up or touch her. The whole thing could tip over. He hated himself for sitting so frozen. He could almost visualize himself tiptoeing. Pass something explosive. A big stupid looking tiptoe like in a cartoon the whole last black had been this way and it was wrong. He knew it was wrong. Knew something was required of him. That was not this terrible frozen care and caution but he pretended to himself did not know what it was was required. He pretended it had no name. He pretended that not saying aloud. What he knew to be right and true was for her sake was for the sake of her needs and feelings. He also worked dock and routing at ups on top of school but a trade it to get the day off after they decided together two days before he had awakened very early and tried to pray but could not. He was freezing more and more solid. He felt like that he had not thought of his father the blank frozenness of his father even in church which had once filled him with such pity. This was the truth lane. Dean junior felt son on one arm as he pictured in his mind an image of himself on a train waving mechanically to something that got smaller and smaller as the train pulled away. His father and his mother's father had the same birthday. A cancer Sherry's hair was coloured almost corn blonde very clean the skin through central part pink in the sunlight. They'd sat here long enough. That only their right side was shaded. Now he could at her head but not at her different parts of him felt unconnected to each other. She was smarter than him and they both knew it. It wasn't a school lane was an accounting and business and did all right. He was hanging in there. She was a year older twenty but it was also more. She had always seemed to lane to be on good terms with her life. In a way that age could not account for his mother had put it that she knew what is she wanted which was nursing and not an easy program at Peoria Junior College and plus she worked hostessing at the embers and had bought her own car. She was serious in a way lane light. She had a cousin that died when she was thirteen. Fourteen that she'd loved and been close with only talked about it that once. He liked her smell and her down the arms and the way she exclaimed when something made her laugh he like just being with her and talking to her she was serious in her faith and values in a way that lane had liked and now sitting here with her on. The table found himself. Afraid of this was an awful thing. He was starting to believe that he might not be serious. In his faith he might be somewhat of a hypocrite like the Assyrians in Isaiah which would be a far graver sending the appointment. He has decided he believed
De Niro, Devito, Stiller record stay-at-home PSAs
"I'm watching you Robert deniro is urging new Yorkers and indeed everybody to stay home to protect their loved ones Danny DeVito is blunt about why people should self quarantine young people get it they can transmit the old people anything you know one man of the year and Stiller says staying at home is an opportunity to read books watch movies or learn how bees I've always been interested in chains are I never have time to explore it I marquees are let off
Heavy Social Distancing
"Feel like everyone is pretty freaked out about crony virus for very good reason. It's very freaky and it just seemed like I don't know like why not it's for you and me like we got something out of it. We get to talk and hang out and maybe stop thinking about her for a little while and also for the struggle buddies who maybe just like want something. I feel like a lot of people are trying really hard to think about Think about things and watch things and listen to things that aren't completely terrifying also elections and politics and there's a lot happening in the world so we're trying to do something nice for you while we're both well at least speaking on my behalf freaking out a little. Bit New York just declared a state of emergency and there's a bunch of things my show might be cancelled. There's there's a lot of things happening right now. That are very scary for me and I could really use this fun time with you sally. Yeah let's have a fun time. I'm I'm doing okay. I mean I find this to be pretty scary just I feel Scared about like the the fact that the dumbest meanest man on the planet is in charge of taking care of us right now. That feels scary. I I worry about people who can't work from home or like don't have paid leave which we should all have right now. We should all have that always anyway. people who like have to go to work You know like the fact that we can't rely on the government to support US during a healthcare crisis of this magnitude is just like fucking awful in scary so that is getting me down and like it's also just like you know if you read enough science fiction you know this is the this is kind of like the nightmare. Fuel of many a dystopia novel. So it's scary shit And you know at the same time I feel like it's important to be kind of realistic about you. Know what the data is showing us. And what the risks are and stuff like that because I personally Work really hard not to spiral down the drain of catastrophic thinking. And so this has really put me to the test But you know I'm doing okay. I'm doing okay And I have to say PA- go ahead go ahead. I was going to say it's hard not to You know when when people like myself and you have a catastrophic thinking earnings when it actually does happen when the bad things do happen to recognize it and also understand like okay. This is real. This is not in my imagination and honor it and give it some space and let yourself sit with it because it is you know. I don't want to bum everyone out but this is very serious. It's very and the way in which you put it. I think is the best way is that we wish that the people we elected the people we pay their taxes to Would be helping us out more and unfortunately we are now helping our neighbors out quite literally and figuratively without getting into great detail. I do have people directly affected by this virus who have been tested positive. And that's very scary to me. Not because I can't get over it because I'm younger and healthy as it were but I know people whose immune systems are compromised or people who are older and it would terrify me to pass this on. So I'm rethinking the Wayne which I'm doing many things right now because it's it's here and it's happening in Israel. Yeah Yeah Yeah I agree I'm like I have to say that. Like today has been better for me than yesterday because this is the first day that. I'm seeing a lot of places and people and like things rethink what they're doing and I you know I i. There are like much more event cancellations and much more of things like closing down and schools closing and stuff like that which you know it. It sucks and is terrible and it. It harms people financially and the whole thing is really fucked up and at the same time this is what needs to happen to contain this to the extent that we can and what I yesterday and earlier in the week I was getting I was feeling really anxious like it just felt like so many people were behaving like business is business as usual like people who were holding big events or going into work or were employers some employers stiller doing it and it's terrible And I feel today like like. There's more of a like kind of wakeup call and I don't. I don't know if it's because of like Tom. Hanks Wilson's husband about that. Yeah I feel like it's because Rita Wilson's husband tested positive and So now people are taking it seriously so you know I like the whole thing is really scary but I guess what I'm saying is that like there are also reasons to like be reassured throughout all of this So anyway I don't know I guess we maybe. Let's not talk about because many people don't want to hear the survival rate is very high. I mean the chances of succumbing to this very low so it's sort of important to note that but I think you brought up a great point that at least we're now looking at societal contract. We're looking at the fact. Pay Leave things like that are now becoming real to people if they weren't before So I think that's that's the silver lining I guess. Yeah Oh there's one more silver lining sally. Tell me Watson the dog next door. Oh yeah now that. His owners are working from home. No more barking. Oh my God I had. I left some good news. I have slept so well. 'cause watching doesn't bark when the owners leave because they're not only in fact. I saw him on the street today. I'm like working from home. They don't know me in real life so I didn't say hi to them but I watched them across the street and I was like well. Well well. The Old Silver Lining Watson is finally S. T. F.
What is Myth and what is Mystery
"Welcome to kids myths and mysteries sime. Your host can crumb today. What is a myth? What is a mystery? After after more than two hundred podcasts. Under the umbrella terms of Beth than mystery I decided it was time to define exactly what constitutes a myth mystery. The simple answer is it. A myth is usually a traditional story. Often considered folklore and a mystery is something that is unexplained or unknown tone but there was a fine line where mystery and myth blur one into the other. A mystery may exist for so long with no resolution that becomes a myth or folklore. Take for example. My podcast January eleventh two thousand nineteen Scotland's mystery lighthouse. It's a the story of three experienced. Seamen that mandalite house. They vanished without a trace. Nobody's washed ashore. Nobody body was ever found. Their fate was never discovered. Now that's a mystery. The Myth is a story that came out of the lighthouses. Long described a huge storm yet the locals in the area so that there was no storm before or on the date mentioned in the diary. Why would three season semen describe a storm that never existed? Did the student took place around nineteen hundred. The storm that never was has become something Nova myth or folklore among locals that refused used visit the island and the lighthouse there. Now that's a good example of myth and mystery sharing the space in the same story. Then there are mystery. He said are declared myth like the flying saucer. The crash lol Roswell initially the crash and the wreckage were confirmed by local military and instant mystery because of the unknown factor surrounding the flying saucer but roughly twenty four hours after the crash. Military brass declared cler was a weather balloon. Bam Mystery Reduced to myth the. What about the myth? That's turned from folklore into a mystery. A powerful myth that involves Hani Valley. That's in Canada's northwest. Territories is of a bear dog. The Hani Valley was untouched by the last ice. Age and most of the valley is virtually unexplored even today the DNA Indians at once lived along the Nonni River who's on sisters now live urban yellowknife in the surrounding regions. Speak of an animal that had the body short legs of a bare but the head and the tail of a dog folklore right. Maybe not a complete skeleton of the creature resides in a museum in British Columbia. The discovery of that skeleton turned an ancient myth or folklore into a mystery. Initially you say no. When the skeleton was discovered a turned that bit of folklore in fact get stiller's mystery it is the evolution of that bear? Dog that is the mystery. Perhaps the best example of a myth becoming a mystery as Peru's mocks you picture the existence. The Mountain City was a myth though. I need to mention here that it was only a myth to Europeans explores the local farmers had known about the ancient ruins for generations and farm the surrounding areas. Anyway the city was a myth that explore been wanted to track down then he did and and in the annals of modern architecture went from myth to mystery mystery because although the city had been raised out of the clouds of folklore myth myth it remained a mystery to this day who built the city live there and why from these three examples. It's my hope that you can see how myth and mystery often go hand in hand have why I chose those terms myth and mystery from my podcasts.

They will always going to hear this and go I don't think you'll hear that he might. And then he's going to go like, that's why did this. Now, it's legs. Now. Now the fingers if he was wearing a shirt eventually you'll hear this. Yeah. We'll be like, oh, I want to tell people like Ben Stiller the finger. Yes.

And you would have thought people starting to guess what? Right, right. My do I represent that my bad thing. We did completely silly harmless reference joke once on our show, and I'll actually use the real name because I love the guy Nathan lane. This was maybe I don't know fifteen years ago or something it was the old late night show. And we did some just completely silly joke where we just need the name of anybody and a writer just threw a Nathan lane. But it was nothing bad about Nathan lane. It was nothing. It was just we needed a name for something and someone threw in. Oh, yeah. Nathan lane still attractor, you know, something that was completely random and the next thing. I heard later on I heard well. They went to book Nathan lane, and we heard from his people that will he thinks Conan's mad at him. And I was like what? And what happened was someone had just seen that? I just mentioned Nathan Lane's name on my show and just thought that it was in a snide way. So the next thing I knew that they had told Nathan lane that who's a lovely guy. And I admire Nathan lane. So I called him up. And he was like, Well, I I guess people are, you know, I got hurt your shows doesn't like me anymore. Maybe people are turning against me. And I was like no who's turning against Nathan lane. It was just made me feel so bad that things get worked through a prism time. We're all we're all insecure. I don't think it has to rule your life. But like when it there's it's.

It got him on tape vacations to Moscow sees the records. What about hairstylists blind with the shaky hands? He died like months ago. I'm sad. You're going to prison Michael you were like a son to me. Then why did you make me do so much illegal stuff because you were like send to me? Alec Baldwin and my guest, Ben Stiller and Saturday Night Live. How did you become Michael Cohen on us? I got a call from an Email from from Lorne Michaels actually was emailing Lauren to tell him that. I wanted to bring my daughter to the show for the first time who's sixteen and and it was the week. I guess this came up, and he sent me back an Email and said, oh, that's great. Yeah. Definitely you can bring an oath, by the way. Do you have a Michael Cohen lying around? Meaning do Michael Cohen impression lying around which I of course, didn't and that was that. And then, and then I, you know, I tried to YouTube him and trying to come up with some version because he didn't really talk that much talk that much and and that was it. You know, that's the way it works on SNL. They'll write the the piece, you know, maybe on Thursday if you're lucky, but usually on Friday or even being written rewritten on Saturday up till the show. So sometimes I would get the call like on Friday night. But that's how that happened the first time in your New York. So. Are you in York? Yes, I'm yes. I'm in New Yorker, and and it was pretty convenient. And also, I was in the sort of like in the midst of editing, Dan Amora, so it it was a pretty funny experience to kind of jump into basically, the the opposite experience of editing editing where you're sitting in a room with an editor. And just kind of, you know, not in any mode other than sort of watching and looking and and then all of a sudden, you're like being thrown into live performing in front of a national audience, which is not my favorite thing to be so much fun for you..

"Did you give him any suggestions or any insights into? What you wanted him to bring out? Yes. Because I'm going to tell Benita they'll Torah how to be intimidating and scary. I really felt like he hadn't achieved that and I could help him out with that. You know, he I I loved working with him. He had so many specific ideas about how to approach this character and make, you know, make him a full character that was obviously very very manipulative, and and able to intimidate and operate in that world, and so I relied on on his instincts a lot of the time that I would then kind of go back and forth with him on and insert scenes. I'd have more of an instinct of what I felt should happen. But he always had a very very strong point of view. I mean, one of the things that he suggested that I I thought worked really well was in the first episode. We originally had him doing something violent to somebody on the north yard to show that he was a dangerous guy because violence happens out on the north yard people. Get shaved, you know, people get beaten up things happen out there and. He suggested that we cut that scene and not show Matt being violent until the sixth episode when we see the flashback, and I thought that was a really bold choice on his part. Because what he was basically saying is I can be intimidating and scary without having to show any violence. And I think our show is probably like the least violent prison show ever made. You know? I mean, it's really except maybe for stir crazy or something, you know. I mean, it's not there's no there's really there are no scenes of you know, there you don't see any except for you know, obviously in prison. Outside of prison in that one episode episode, but that one episode but other than that one episode there there really isn't anything else. And so that was his choice. You know, he said, I think this'll be much more effective to see the violence of this guy. You know that deep into the story Patricia Arquette gained around forty pounds t play the prison employees. And what what issues does that create for you as director because there was also, you know, the scenes that are shot when she's in prison or jail, and so her weight changes depending on what the time is that you're shooting. So it takes time to gain weight and it takes time to lose weight. So just as the director in that situation is supposed to being the person who has to eat a lot or stop eating. What what are the issues that you have to deal with? Well, I was concerned about it. First of all because those shoot was so long the shoot was eight months long, and I really felt like she needed to gain the weight too. You know, you can't just wear sort of, you know, a suit to make you look heavier. I, you know, it changes her face and all that and she was also wearing teeth and and contact lenses to make is Brown because she has these piercing blue eyes. And so it was a whole bunch of things. But the weight was really really important. I felt because she has such, you know, she's very classically beautiful woman who has these movie star looks, and it was just trying to sort of get away from that for this character, and it was tough because I kept on encouraging her to to eat so and Paul dano was working out with a weight coach because he he's, you know, not as built as David sweat was David sweat built up in prison because he was. Afraid of getting beaten up so all of them had to commit to to changing their bodies. Let's take a short break here. And when we come back. We'll talk about playing Michael Cohen. If you're just joining us, my guest is Ben Stiller and he directed the seven part Showtime series escape at Dan Amora, which is based on a real prison escape from twenty fifteen. We'll be right back.

"Lose my job. Should you? Ben Stiller, welcome to fresh air, and congratulations on escape at ten or more with their aspects of this story that most interested you. Well. Yeah. I mean, there was the actual escape part. And I really was into that. And as I learned more about it and read more about the the prison itself. What really interested me was how they were able to do this how they were able to get away with this in twenty fifteen. It seemed like such an old fashioned sort of escape, and I thought, wow, that, you know, how can that happen in in today's prison system, which you know, when you think about the prison system in the United States, you think of it as being sort of it's not it seems sort of depressing, obviously. But at and you think of these institutions, they don't seem like they're state of the art. But to actually, you know, have people be able to do something like that was fascinating to me. Me that they could get away with it in this day and age, and so that part of it, and then the relationships that developed a guess in the prison that allowed them to be able to get the tools, which led to Tilly, and the fact that she was actually having this interaction and relationship with these two guys, which then led to the environment, the tailor shop, and what exists in place, and how that works which was really really interesting and something I'd I had no idea existed prison tailor shop where both of the inmates and the woman who helped them escape work and they make prison. Uniforms. They're so what was so surprising to you about that? Just the fact that it was so I don't wanna say loose, but open in terms of the just the way the actual physical setup of it which was forty or so inmates. Who are in a maximum security facility for you know, committing violent crimes in a room with one civilian supervisor and one corrections officer, and that's it. And these these men are, you know, working with scissors and shears, and you know, all sorts of instruments that could be used for bad things. And it's just sort of like an honor system that's going on in there. And and how low tech it was really low tech. You know, really novato cameras. There's that back room that they would go into that Tilly would go into Lizzie add with covert sexual relations with the inmates. Yes. Yes. And and just how how the whole thing was sort of kind of like operated. Its first of all it's a business core craft is a for profit business. That's so, you know, the civilian supervisors overseeing these inmates who are working for. Or something like thirty five or forty cents an hour, and they have to meet a quota, and it's kind of a strange situation. You know, it's just it's because you know, when you think about that that these, you know, the the civilian supervisor has to fill quotas, and these workers have to be motivated to do that when they're prisoners who were working for basically, hardly anything. It's just a kind of a screwed up dynamic. I think you were able to actually shoot at Clinton correctional facility. Indiana Maura where the story is set. Did you have any protection when you shooting in there? Did you feel like you needed any did the correctional facility feel like you needed any? The first trip that we took in there. We got shirt into a little trailer that sort of a permanent trove of ahead setup and a meeting room in there and the superintendent and the deputy superintendent and a bunch of people who were administrators at the prison gave us a talk and told us what what we're going to be doing. And that the tour we were going to be taking, and you know, basically said this is a dangerous environment. And they were going to do everything they could to keep us safe and keep things as low key as possible. But the reality is, you know, you're in a prison. And so you don't know what could happen and. They tried to walk us through spaces at times when prisoners weren't there in the spaces. So like we were actually ushered into the sort of this small little office area. When you first walk in where the corrections officers can lock themselves in to turn on lights and things like that..

"From WHYY in Philadelphia. I'm Terry gross with fresh air today. Ben Stiller talks about directing the Showtime series escape at Denham Maura.

There some scenes were shot in that prison going into that prison. The first thing I thought about was getting out that was like I was so happy to leave. So it doesn't shock me that anybody in their would wanna get out, even if you knew that the odds were against you this series stars Benicio del Toro, Paul Dino.

It's also a character study of those two inmates and the woman who worked at the prison who helped them escape both inmates. Richard Matt played by Benicio del Toro and David sweat played by Paul deneau worked at the prison tailor shop where prison uniforms were made they convince the civilian employees who ran the shop Joyce Tillie Mitchell to get them the tools, they use. Used to dig through the basement walls and steam pipes of the old prison to escape there were able to manipulate her through sexual relationships with her they told her they wanted to be with her after they escaped with a really wanted was for her to be with them just long enough to get the getaway car and get them to safe place. She's played by Patricia Arquette who just won a Golden Globe for her performance. The series opens with our cats character Tillie Mitchell in jail this time as an inmate not an employee.

It's actually more accurate. This girl specially should done with me fifteen years. I did a comparison. I was right. You would to state police, please. Now, I'm the inspector general for the state of New York. Oh, so a post office. No the post offices, federal I'm state. So if there's any corruption in the state agency, it's my job to find it and stop it. Whether it's a state park or the port authority, and I report directly to the governor. No, the Mike lose might jar. Should you? Ben Stiller, welcome to fresh air and congratulations on escape ten Amora. Whether aspects of this story that most interested you well. Yeah. I mean, there was the actual escaped part, and I really was into that. And as I learned more about it and read more about the the prison itself. What really interested me was how they were able to do this how they were able to get away with this in two thousand fifteen it seemed like such an old fashioned sort of escape, and I thought, wow, that, you know, how can that happen in in today's prison system, which you know, when you think about the prison system in the United States, you think of it as being sort of it's not it seems sort of depressing, obviously. But at anything of these institutions, they don't seem like they're state of the art. But to actually, you know, have people be able to do something like that was fascinating to me. That they could get away with it..

"And then we filmed it, and when we filmed that we looked at it and said, you know, this is just too on the nose to it. Feels too weird it feels to meta. And so so we ended up changing it, but I find as far as on the nose go in real life. So much stuff is on those. I mean, I remember one time I was in a situation where everyone in a crowd was shocked, and I had this consciousness. Oh, look to the left, and right and the expressions that people were giving the open the gate mouth expressions. We're just so cliche. We get set of that bad. All the time. Yeah. Yeah. It's what human reaction to things human the human desire like these guys are going to want to escape, you know. That's that's that's probably obvious. And you know, they had to the that's just the way these things happen. I, and they had some crazy ideas actually that to escape before they actually hit on the way they actually escaped they had at one point, Richard. Matt had this idea to this is crazy to make a hang glider out of empty lip balm containers like to make a frame for hang glider and get it on the roof of the tailor shop and jump over the wall. I think that's a Simpson's episode act. I know. No never went through with that. But you know, it's like, you know, I it there's something to me. That's what was interesting about the story. The the cliches of it as they related to the reality of it. Because you know, how does something like this actually really happened. Besides the fact that's kinda hard to believe that something like this could happen in this day and age. Yeah. Ben Stiller is the director of this seven part series on Showtime called escape it. Dan, Amora we've found out in this interview. I think it's the first piece of prestige TV ever to be based on an inspector general's report. I hope this. I hope you get a hold of the Muller commission report and spend into gold, then it'll be like a thirty part series. Yeah. Thank you. Ben. All right. Cool..

"So it was a took the money as making the play which was not allowed money, and I put it into making the short, and then we have the short. We didn't have anywhere to show it again because it was no u-turn. If only had been right now. Do you who you are? So you had to take your can of film around literally, you know, it's pretty crazy or like your video cassette at a had a three quarter inch in and VHS and John love. It's come to see the play, and I called up Jon lovitz. And I said, hey, because he was on us and said, hey, do you think you could maybe to made this short? Maybe do you think it could get it up to them to look at? And he literally like said meet me in the lobby of thirty rock, and I went and I met him, and I gave him cassette which was like what a great thing to do. You actually did that I didn't know him at all hardly. And then I got a call next day that they were gonna put it on a Thursday and Friday got a call. They wanna put it on the show on Saturday. And they'd never done that before they'd never put a short on. It didn't have any buddy from the cast in. It must have been a head trip for a variety of reasons. Not At least the least. of which is like that's like you're in the realm of Albert Brooks who I'm sure it was like, you know, who did all this yet. That's what that's what I wanted to do that was my dream was to to be Albert Brooks. And and yeah, that was they called me. And they said, hey, can you cut like two minutes out of it? And so when the editing bays there and. And then just sat in the green room. I remember when it was on and watched audience kind of laugh, they're kind of like the wilder. But it was really Jim Downey who is the head writer who who's guy who said. Yeah. This is funny and. That's amazing. So in early days of your career, like even thinking like pre Ben Stiller show, pre kind of reality bites the acting career was the acting career feeling like it was going somewhere where you struggling to kind of get. We talked about him part of the song. Like, it's it seems like to me looking back. It took you kind of like the Ben Stiller show. And then putting yourself in reality bites to aggravate sort of starts kind of make some headway on the acting front. Yeah. It was it was a strange sort of balance. I was. I was doing my own things like that like making those shorts and then I would get a pardon a play. Right. And then I would get a small part of movie. I remember when I got on SNL, which I was brought on as a writer, and I did want to be Albert Brooks. And they didn't really need anybody making short films of that time. I had this opportunity to do. I did a little part in this movie Stella with midler and I had had previous commitment. I had to go and do that for week which was like, you know, if you're on SNL, you don't go. Hey, I gotta go to the movie I'll see you later with somebody who's an apprentice rider. Which I totally I get that. So I was like sort of like one foot out the door. Anyway, trying to figure out what I was doing. And then made a commitment. I also had this opportunity to MTV show called. It's your our which was which was the precursor. Ben Stiller shown MTV got it. Which was they give an hour to somebody. They thought was worthy to do whatever they want to do, you know, not big budgets, and Jeff Kahn who is my writing partner, and friend and roommate at the time, and I did a we started doing this little act together. We're like I do like bottom impression. We'd he do Bob Dylan. And we've kind of put together is the closest thing to stand up comedy that ever did. And it wasn't stand up comedy like sort of semi sketch comedy at we did at the China Club in New York because I think he had a friend there. Let us go on..

"Mr Ben Stiller, my office look at that. He just materialized that are nowhere. I know just appeared. Thanks teleported. Yeah. You have that magical. But also have the ability. Certain ones congrats on the new limited series. I guess we should say what are we even call this kind of thing nowadays. I guess I guess they call it a limited series back in my day. It was a mini series. Right. This is the north and south of times. This is the main for me it was like. Yeah. Roots and shogun and go to V. Let's go to the right. Thornbirds? Congrats on this, man. That's a great piece of work really really enjoyed it. It's this feel like making four different movies. I mean, this is a lot of material tackle. Yeah. It was. I mean, honestly, it's been it's been a long process. About two years working on it. And it's been great though. It was it was kind of Louis shot. It all the way you would shoot a movie right because we had to. You just had to shoot everything in one location. We started in the summer and ended in the winter. So we had to shoot everything at the end. I kind of in terms of exteriors. Right. And so then we shot everything in the tailor shop of the prison, and then shot everything in the cell block. So in that way, it was kind of like making. Yeah. Making a movie that had a lot of material in it is their only one giant script or no, no other. They're seven. Yeah. Seven different scripts, and that was important to to me was to try to really have each episode have a beginning middle and end be its own thing. But and then be able to look at the whole thing overall..

"Today on happy set. Confused. Ben Stiller goes dramatic with escape at data Maura. Hey, guys. I'm Josh Horowitz. Welcome to another dish of happy. Sad confused. The man of the hour today. It's not me. It's not you. What's put the focus where it should be? Mr Ben Stiller is making his debut on happy sad confused today. And I could not be more thrilled. People always ask me who have an I had on than I always draw blank. And I never know. But come to think of it. Ben Stiller was one of the top people, frankly that I've always wanted to have on the podcast, I special I knew I I appreciated and enjoyed the work of Ben Stiller as we all do. But when I really dug into the research and went back and thought about it. I realize his work, frankly is a huge part of my wealth of film and comedy of the whilst twenty plus. Years even further back the Ben Stiller show Zululand or tropic thunder. The cable guy so many great things. Those those are just the film directed not to mention all the amazing work. He's done in front of the camera. So this was a real great pleasure to have been on the podcast. He couldn't have been more open, and honest, and funny, and smart, and all the all the things you wanted to guest. So super proud of this conversation with the great actor, and filmmaker Mr Ben Stiller, and as I said the reason for him coming in is not a comedy, and certainly he's balanced dramatic work with comedy over his career. But he's never done it behind the camera. His directing work has always been deciding the sidedly comedic, and that has changed with his newest project. It is called escape at Dan Amora, and it is a seven part miniseries on Showtime at abuse November eighteenth, check it out. I've watched the entire thing, and it is an arresting fascinating true-life tale. If you don't remember. If it doesn't ring a bell back in twenty fifteen upstate New York. There was a prison break. This isn't ruin anything helps to have a little bit of context than it. Kind of is introduced in the opening moments of the series, two inmates escaped, and they skipped with the help of someone working on the inside. And the three people were talking about here are played by some of the best in the business. It's benishi del Toro, Paul Daino and Patricia Arquette and special points. Ben Stiller for casting Patricia Arquette retaining after their previous work together on for disaster. I mean, come on doesn't get better than that. So exceptionally well acted wonderfully atmospheric, and well paced Stiller clearly has the chops as director, but clearly can commit himself to dramas if he wants like if you wants to just totally commit to this. For the rest of his career. He'd be I think one of our better dramatic directors too. So what a jerk for being talented in all aspects of his career, but kudos to him on this new this new venture escape down more as I said, it's November eighteenth is the first of seven episodes premiere on Showtime, definitely well worth checking out other than that other things to mention gosh, we very busy here at MTV..
