Okay, That's why that's why I'm asking. That's all that's been caught there a few times to it. I was caught once, I think, which is to say that It was the equivalent of what will he have to go through? You know, listening, Jack. That's what if that's the way it happened. That is the equivalent. You felt just as frightened as well. He did when he was there with his pregnant wife, then that's not. That's not right either. It's no no discussion. Everybody's having. I really, I realize no, no, no. Please. I'm trying to make this conversation. All right. I was brought into the same thing right? And and we had to pay a fine and cast the whole thing. Why was that?

Whether it says whether it's is just as Ah, Bookkeeping thing is you're talking about What Willie is talking to us about was a fear that he had for his own safety because ofthe other things he had already experienced in his life, and that's what they're all talking about. These are not isolated incidents when they talk about it. I mean, it's it with that after everybody, Eddie ex experience that as procedure and knew that to be true, But when you're in the middle of the night in a strange place, and you've you've grown up as a black man in this country when he did in the sixties.

I've gotten pulled over at night by police, whatever speeding whatever the case may be I've not feared for my life. Okay, I know others have okay because of circumstances that they've been through.

If our friend Jack didn't feel threatened and thought it was just a regular procedure because it was the middle of the night. Well, okay.

Trump’s executive order could be a disaster for thwarting misinformation
"You Michel Cinder. Let's look ahead to today. I know the president is working on some sort of executive order pertaining to social media. Again more distractions. What are you watching? That's what I'm watching as we have this conversation. It's the door conversation about that. Death toll one hundred thousand Americans were more actually dying from this virus. The president is focused on pushing back on social media companies. It's comes of course. After twitter changed its policies to start trying to explain to people that are on the site that some of the president's tweets are not are misleading. Including of course labeling some of those tweets misleading in China provide information including on mail in voting the site saying that President Trump is spreading information on that. The president is expected to sign some sort of executive order. That would push back on them. It seems like it's going to be some sort of regulation possibly stripping them of some some sort of protections that they have a social media companies. It's not clear exactly. The White House hasn't said exactly what the president's going to be timing what we do know that this is going to be in retaliation to what he sees as twitter really targeting him and treating him unfairly. So it's in some ways another split screen where you have the nation still thinking about one hundred thousand and more Americans that we've lost and the president focused on opponents that he sees focused on his perceived enemies and focused on what he seizes liberal people trying to get out. And when of course this is really a social media company trying to respond to the overwhelming criticism of the president who has at times spread misinformation on his website. And of course this comes as the witter of of a woman of course. The president had said over and over again was murdered. Which of course is a baseless claim. Laurie close so I think in some ways. I think it's really it's really historic but it's also really. It's it's incredible that the president is going to be spending part of his time trying to hit back at twitter. I'm what is spreading baseless murder conspiracy theories? Well it's a distraction make. It's all a distraction. It's still and again against you but you have to look you have to step back and you have to look at when this began and the really outrageous stuff began as we were moving towards that Sunday front page New York Times Article. That showed that one hundred thousand. Americans we're going to be dead from the coronavirus and so now it's morph into fights with cable news hosts Al Sad that and and twitter And as long as he can get people talking about that being shocked and stunned and deeply said about that. They're not going to be focusing. On the fact that one hundred thousand people died of a pandemic that he said was just one person coming in from China. But I'm seeing a lot of people even trump supporters who see this as basically as they see the coronavirus they see this president endangering their lives not leading by example pushing quack drugs. That don't that actually are dangerous. That help other people in other ways but are dangerous in terms of treating corona virus. They see that it's basic it impacts their basic safety. Well when they watch him talking about this conspiracy theory in the light of the husband asking him to stop in the lot of grieving family begging for mercy and begging him to stop and they see him running over that request. That's as basic to them as it pertains to decency. I think there are a lot of trump supporters. I've been seen and reading. That are just like no. This is the bottom of the barrel of the core of who you are and we can't support this. So that is that is grieving family. Obviously but Willie you grieving family. That just does not deserve this. There are other one hundred thousand. Grieving families Today and we also should talk about the president ridiculing. People for wearing masks ridiculing Joe Biden a public figure for wearing a mask for following actually the guidelines of the White House following the guidelines to Dr Foul chief following the guidelines of the for following the guidelines of just about every doctrine America and mocking members of the press.

The no is sorry for your loss. Went on a long journey Put the dog to sleep. We put the doctor sleep. That's that's a really big one And the reason for that is that well. Then if you're telling me now that the dog went to sleep in his not gonNA wake up and died while I go to sleep every night. Am I going to die? You go to sleep every night. Mommy and Daddy. Are you going to die? So it's really important to use the word died inequality I feel like we often trip up in our rush to want to reassure kids so I remember when my older daughter is three. She said I know Mommy. You said everybody dies but me and you and the cat won't die right and I so wanted to tell her. No nobody none of you know when you love going to die but you know. I had to tell her the truth and I was so glad that I did. Because if you years later our our cat did pass away did I. You hear that on you. It's hardcore you know we're so used to doing that. It's really hard. It's totally true. Muslims everywhere which is one reason. Rosemary says don't just use the word dive but also be clear with kids like this is what it means you know when you die. Your heart stops. Your body stops working. You don't eat you. Don't breathe to give more concrete information about what is the meaning of death. This is all true for when we're talking about the what of death but you know. The advice is a little different when kids are asking the why questions and this brings us to take away number two. Which is sometimes it can be better not to tell kids too much especially not all at once. So let's let's pick up where we left off with big burden. Why don't understand you know everything was just fine. Why does it have to this way? Give me one good reason. One good reason and it is at this point that a grownup on the show. A man named Gordon stands up. He walks over and he says something that just hit me. It's so simple. Cory bird it has to be this way because just because just because just because that's it. Yeah that's it. So Rosemary says they picked that answer for a few reasons so first of all. They wanted to leave room for families to talk about the meaning of death according to their own faith traditions their beliefs and you know and we as parents should always feel free to kind of we all will fill that in however it makes sense to us which is an easy right but rosemary says there's another reason they did it this way and it's the sometimes it's better not to give kids too much information at least all at once right so kids. They get overwhelmed really easily so to adults and in this moment gordon concede that big birds already taken in a lot so he holds back. Rosemary says she got advice on this one's from hospice social worker. Who specialized in talking with kids about death and she used the analogy of eating an apple when we eat an apple. We'd we'd the whole apple when a child eats an apple. They take a bite maybe two bites. They put it down down. Leave it on the couch on the floor on the floor. Pick a backup. Take two more by exactly and this goes on now. We will look at that apple and say gross like I ain't eating this apple But for them it's like I'm still eating the apple. That's probably how go into to experience death as well. They'RE GONNA take a couple of bites they're going to go on with their life and they're gonNA come back and they're gonNA take a couple more by rose. Marie are you that person that parent who slices up the apple and gives them a few slices at a time so serious. Where'd you the whole piece of fruit? But even the slice they probably not going to eat the whole

Try to envision the description bit and I'll show you how to Rizal your role as a lots of stuff at all in the description. Ha but I mean they're awesome the rousing good options coming up on this enrichment trading against Bitcoin as well a man of got. I've got one a three full full full. Try to diner. Bitcoin LOOKING FOR EIGHT. Move to the upside. Then it's just a spot market to you know I'm not I'm not even talking to Imagining that's case. I'm just looking at the spot. Mark The we do have some very very nice Options vital because I want to take you through. What's going on right now across the top ten now. Bitcoin look at. It was decided that I like like honestly. It was just so undecided. A just was horrible. I mean look Closed in our guy or the actually close one hull and it closed for into ever down point. Six percent of close at eight thousand eight hundred thirty six. So what does it mean? What does it mean what does it mean? Well I tell you what it does mean what it could mean. What am I being that? Indecisiveness can often lead to a change of direction. It can't because it doesn't try to go down as a member done anything. But I'll tell you what I'm watching and you want to write this down the the level. Actually you can save on Youtube video so you can actually watch on talking to. You are now if we can get above from Willie on now. Okay so just caveat if we can get above from where we are now we just keep going up. Get above nine thousand nighttime. We'll have ourselves Ohio Ohio. Honda will be on the four hour chop a love. That four outshot man. It's just as important as the daily to me because I use that to Ghana What's going on is low to mid timeframes wiser use the daily for that big picture momentum as well so we get a reversal trending four realistically from nine thousand and ten thousand. Roughly around with that resistance is we got two thousand bucks. We get an uptrend. Hey Hey try again on margin a love driving and the starting to creep into today if we can get bitcoin back into that four hour uptrend. Gee Whiz we could be in for NAS. It'll move even if we just run back up to that resistance as plenty of spice. There's some pretty combat that I'm high paying a monthly to get it done in the next couple of days. Because I wouldn't expect to one day with what could happen. These markets could do very little for a little bit and then Bam off they go and they run doth like a know. A bullet dight Got That wrong was meant to say the design shut. The Guy was bolted. That could work. That ain't apologies for some pull. Use analogies they cry very bad A. I'm deeply sorry But four our up would be really really nice there on Bitcoin. We sitting right now. Point four percent one hour into the trading day a not much to say beyond that go to wet for that reversal theory. Did break down to new lows on that four. So it's not in the same position as we're two hundred very messy very sideways above two hundred to one four now yes. That'd be closed down. One point five six percent just above two hundred two hundred ninety one dollars. X. Pay Agai leadership that four foyer all. It does have a high alert. It's very similar. Bitcoin So a guy wanting to see a break above the level of high is nineteen. Point seven cents. That's the level of reluctancy. Move Away from very ugly looking on the daily I. It's not really looking all that great to be honest with you. It's looking we'll bearish bullish. Guidance is is pretty decisive. Guys the low. It's a one point sir Point that would put us into a much stronger. Downturn not there at the mine. Bitcoin cash yesterday closed at two hundred twenty dollars on the noise. Down one percent. A guy you know look at this four hour timeframe we do have higher low. The will we push to a high hot well. Only time will tell to twenty five right now. Bitcoin cash. Vs they probably. The best will not probably the best of the mid-term timeframe downtrends BS phase. One Eighty One. Seventy six point nine percent right now of yesterday It did closed down nearly three percent close at one point two seven Pointing back that cradles actually gives us an option for a short tried lighter if if the market does attend some pretty happy to have that option available mom being long or short. I just want to make sure of options lot coin. Yesterday was down one point. Six percent closing forty two dollars and twenty five cents just across four our gang. We do have a high alert. I'm it's not the most bullish Johnson got to be ost. None of them really hard. The minute weddings that Jai Alai with only forty two dollars and fifty nine point three percent a US yesterday rejection catalysts off so it was down point. Non a percent closing rod around where we are right now to be fair closing at two dollars fifty and we are currently at two fifty that four out very similar just to push on higher. If we're going to do that or if we're GONNA go low I WANNA is get a main I wanna get below tweedles. Forty that would make me look much better to the downside bonds. While yesterday very slow I point nine percent. Dan Closing at sixteen dollars and twenty cents. Sixteen dollars and twenty seven cents. Not much to speak of to be honest I will. It rejected often old level that The set there about twenty two cents. It's looking at what nauseous actually for potential move to the upside the the daily although a little bit funny looking flat it hasn't really broken that up trend that it has been in for quite some time we do have a very clear high Every break up through the. Hi this New Five Point. Four three cents. That will have a speaking to an upturn in that will let the Pacino wrought now flat on the table. See what's causing stole. I as the day goes on there in classic. Six hundred seventy two point three percent right now. Yesterday it was down one point. Three four close at six seventy We need to get above the high here. And this is on the daily chart on talking till you six Tony to we get above six. Have that daily out. Trim back in

"Now let's talk about what's a little less excite. I should say less exotic. What is quite boring at the mind? The market look. Bitcoin was down four point. Seven percent of an odd closed down at nine thousand fifty nine hundred dollars just take cooling tickling around that nine thousand mark now. I'm still not seeing any major shorting opportunities yet but that being said going down onto those two and four hour timeframes they.

Where did you just dropping some Japanese on me? Where did you pick that up Well I went to Japan and do comedy the troops for the US troops not the Japanese troops. And when I was there I started watching Japanese television and I was like man. This is pretty entertaining especially to soap operas and this is before I was the first African American female stand up comedian to house. Snl and myself. Dang I WANNA be the first to do something and I didn't see any black people on the soap operas and I thought Oh would if I'm the first African American to be on a Japanese soap opera that would be dope Ale and I'll probably be even more famous and more powerful. There's a lot of people in Japan. And a Lotta. People SB Japanese. So when I came back to the states and went straight to the library and I got pins lers Japanese one and I started planning those disk in a car. When I'm sitting in traffic you know L. A. Traffic in the car for two three hours at a time. And now which is Plato CDs over and over and over and over and practice whilst the traffic and that kept me from Avenue road rage and now communicate with basically anybody this week. Japanese to what happened in Japanese soap opera. I'm just waiting for a call. It's still out there. It's still out there. That would be. Don't know how to audition for or how to get that going. So yeah but it's going to happen. We go get that director. Got The director of the kitchen. Who's directing and this just the problem? Though I can't read Japanese speak Japanese. We can get around. Yeah we get somebody to tell me what exactly we need to make this happen. Because there's a lot of people that are actors now to came read but they. This is so much fun. Thank you. Congratulations thanks again to Tiffany for just a great conversation. She is too much fun her new movie. The kitchen is in theaters now. Maggie I don't know about you might take away is.

Understanding Neural Networks
"My name's Tim Willie Crap. I have affiliations with deep mind which is a part of Google and as well. Ucla University College London. Could you tell us a little bit about your career and how you got into machine learning and AI and topics? Like that. So I can around? When I was in undergraduate I took cognitive science course which I think was really the turning point for me. It got me interested in philosophy of the mind and figuring out how we think sometimes and I was in university Toronto when I was in Undergrad and was fortunate enough to take some neural networks courses from Jeff. Engine Bruce Sarah's a professor teaching undergraduate courses and that got me hooked on thinking about neural networks deep neural networks and from there I kind of went off and did neuroscience during my PhD post doc but of kind of slowly come back into. She learned philosophy of the mind doesn't show up on a lot of sort of traditional computer science curricula. How is it the to able to integrate that in also understand the more mathematical sides of these topics? Most of the everyday computer science we do is working with data structures trying to transform numbers and so on but on the other hand I would say that even fairly early on was some connection to this reflexively of mind. Kind of ideas. Touring famously proposed entering test very early on in their development of computer science theory and I think there has been sort of a bridging interest the whole time in part because so why is that I guess because we have this question all the time about what it means to think and in a certain sense computer science has sort of understood that is what does it mean to compute. And there's been a bridge built. I guess at each step along the way as we've gone into that all depending on how lazy I want to get as an interviewer the paper that I invited you on to talk about poses a series of questions. So I'll just do it once. Start with title. What does it mean to understand the neural network? Yes yeah that's right. The title is a bit funny. I mean there's actually probably a bunch of ways to interpret that title and I should say really commutes looks at the paper was aimed. Maybe most at risk kids audience. So it's really trying to speak to neuroscientists who are in the process of trying to understand the brains understand biological brains in particular and how they work and how they compute. It is a paper. Midi written from the perspective of where we find ourselves right now in machine learning deep network theory but then trying to take some of the recent results and ideas and reflecting back into neuroscience in terms of these two fields. I'm wondering if you can describe the relationship. I mean I do bump into people that kind of share both worlds but the ven diagram does not overlap as much as you'd think between machine learning and neuroscience what are some of maybe the successes are inhibitors that can help or hinder the ways in which these two fields can share information depending on who you talk to been massive amounts of transfer and. It's sort of an easy thing that happens all the time or almost no cross talk and I don't know if you like get too bothered about that. I think it's just a case by case basis where there might be transferred interesting ideas flowing one or the other. I think sitting in between them certainly where I've spent a good deal might time and thought but there's very successful practitioners who are just totally. Ignore the other thing that's going on. I guess maybe to connect this question back to the paper though. There's this huge. Recent set of successes in machine learning employing deep. Neural networks to solve all kinds of problems that we couldn't solve before and I do think that there's at least one particular story that's coming out of that progress which we to try and take seriously over on the neuroscience solid. That's what this paper is kind of about of the areas that the paper delves into notion of intermediate languages. Can you talk a little bit about what those are and why they're necessary and helping to understand neural network commitments from perspective of neuroscientists? I for a long time. People doing neuroscience have wanted to in some sense understand how the brain is computed and sometimes the functions of the brains computing are incredibly complex their complex enough that we really do not understand how computing they compute. And so. There's a sense in which you'd like to be able to describe that and how scientific language that we could talk to each other with debt. Let's say this is how this brain tissue is computing complex function. Made it a ground. All of discussion going forward. I'll pick a very particular one. One I think has almost become common currency which is categorizing on object in an image. So this is sort of the canonical example machine learning and you can imagine lots of animals to their answers this kind of computation and certainly humans do tons of this kind of computational time it's very sensible to ask people for ages you know how our brains performing that kind of a problem in could we have a language that would let us get a hold on that describe. What's going on as these computations vote that I think is really the thing that people have had in mind. The aim people have had in mind and I think that the recent results that have come out of the deep learning machine learning community cast a bit of light on this funny light on this. Which is that. Maybe that is not the best question to ask. Certainly. Maybe it's not the best kind of question to start asking right now. What is the best question to be asking right now? If we look at all the progress it's happened in deep learning. We have this picture where we can now build say large networks. That computer function like that quite easily. So in fact weaken specify learning algorithms and the network architectures in a couple of hundred lines of computer code. That will train network to perform that kind of a task quite easily. And we as human computer science practitioners to look at that code and pretty much have a good understanding of of each line of it. How a good idea how they string together in fold together and produce the outputs at the end produce a functional piece of in Silica Brain tissue and even though we can do all that we have almost I would say no true understanding of the computations that have been put into those networks after train. Now I want to distinguish from moment. What do I mean by understanding? I think understanding is this a very loaded philosophical word that gets his into all sorts of trouble just wanted to distinguish for a moment. I mean I think for these networks that we train these deep neural networks. Between our computer we have in some sense. Complete understand what those in that we can look parameters the weights in the network. We can look at how it sort of performs computations on inputs how it transformed the images from hidden layer to in there and then finally to the Oakland so we understand all of mathematical computations. That happened in between sort of totally white box way. But when we step back from that if someone asks you how does that network that this image is a draft or this particular images of an elephant we have? I think no good intermediate language we can sort of talk to other scientists about let us feel like we really tangibly understand the computations that have been put into that network.
Kingpins Daily: Willie Sutton
"Today's quotes is from bank robber. Willie Sutton known for his gentlemanly manner and for Escaping Jail Multiple Times. His crimes eventually earned him spot on the FBI's most wanted list according to the FBI. When asked why he robbed banks he replied. That's where the money is first off. We have to burst our bubble a little according to Sutton. He never actually said this. It was invented by a reporter looking to capitalize on his fame in nineteen fifty two but the quote fit his spirit so well that he later embraced it. Writing a memoir called where the money was in nineteen seventy six sutton very literally learned. That's where the money is early in his life. When he walked to the bank at the age of fifteen he sold the drudgery of the working people coming in early to take out nickels and dimes while the bank owner pulled up in his private car. Eleven Sutton's father. Older brothers were working. Men Struggling in mechanic factory jobs and growing up in Brooklyn he was also surrounded by Irish. Italian mobsters the haves and have nots. Where apparent on top of all this. He had an aunt Alice who was from a wealthy family. She would dress him in suits and take him to fancy restaurants giving him a taste of what things were like on the other side of the divide. If the problem was how do I get around? The dreary lifestyle of a lower class worker than the simple answer was just not live that life. He spent the rest of his teens. Committing acts of theft. Eventually he would take his chances at the big leagues in Nineteen thirty. He robbed his first bank. This first part of his crime spree didn't last long. He was caught and sent to prison less than a year later but he escaped the year after that once again. He had encountered a circumstance. He didn't care for and chose the simplest way out of it. He used a makeshift ladder to climb over the prison wall. Once he was back on the streets sutton came to be admired as he lived a life. Free of restriction. In a way that many Americans wished they could he was known for being a snappy dresser and a snappy talker which is why he got the nickname slick willy. He was the last person you'd expect to rob you. In fact in where the money was he says the Willie Sutton trademark has always been to get inside the bank by wearing the kind of uniform that would lead the gone to open the door for me without question. He also says that he preferred rubbing crowded banks as it made it less likely that anyone besides the person he was rubbing would pay attention to him again. This speaks to his. Keep it simple mentality rather than trying to finagle. A specific complicated scheme. He chose the more direct path walking through the front door. And clearly stating what he wanted as if it were no different than making withdrawal but of course eventually the consequences of his actions did catch up with him. He was called again in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and sent to the eastern state penitentiary in Philadelphia. This time getting out wouldn't be as easy as leaning ladder up against the wall. In fact it would be eleven years before he successfully escaped and even then he was recaptured on the very same day. But he simply kept trying. He escaped again in February. Nineteen forty seven this time making it as a fugitive for five years before being caught again on the one hand that's where the money is exemplifies. Sutton's inability to see the bigger picture to recognize that his crimes had consequences and one day. He'd get himself into a situation. He couldn't walk his way out of. But on the other hand it shows how shutting out the voices in our heads that fill us with fear and doubt and focusing on our goals can lead to amazing things.

Protection order given to 'Duck Dynasty' star after drive-by shooting
"So I was just gonna say this about duck dynasty and that is that to early they were victimized this past weekend after someone did a drive by shooting and shot off eight to ten around on Friday afternoon of the story really didn't get attention until just this week but that what's his face Willie Robertson at the younger duck dynasty guy said we're pretty shook up he said it looks like they were just spraying bullets across the property and he did it in broad daylight no one was injured but one of the shots went through the bedroom window and was actually lodged in the wall they have no suspects but they feel like they were definitely targeted he said I'm a hundred percent certain that we were targeted intentionally but I don't know why he said most of his family is staying indoors because of coronavirus his daughter was on Instagram Sadie Robertson and confirm the report she said it uses true if you've seen it we have so much of our property just wanted to say we are all okay the chickens up of course but we are so thankful everyone of the families okay especially after one of the bullets flew through the window of my brother's home the timing on where we were at the time was crazy protection because we had all just

How does any of this would be one day have you Willie? Geist HERE BY COMPETE. Should I friend gets another car? And we'll drive around the island shout. Oh yes. We're going to do that. It's when I oh you okay if I get out here I'll be going to the flowers show always go one more block I think. Oh is that right. You're spot don't is a place they have it they call it. Greek yielded. Yeah I don't know never heard of such a thing. But they say it has no sugar so you start eating it because who doesn't love ice cream it's by and it's over once you start eating it. It doesn't really taste that good but it's purple and pink and it's chocolate and you just keep eating trying to find it. You're trying to find the Ice Cream somewhere in that yogurt. You can't. It's a bait and switch based team and it never shows up and you look for it and you're one hundred house and they've got you. I like it's fun. This is so cool. What a blast. Thank you for me. This was great in our language. They call it being a good sport. Oh you're the good sport here man. This is good. This is above and beyond you know Steinfeld has Seinfeld has a showy. Does this I know now for the commerce. Comedians in cars getting coffee. He'd probably love to have you on that show. I think well we're wired. Yes so some of this will come out. Yeah that's cool and that's that really funny and you're great and I love what a pleasure thank you and I love you to Al Pacino. My big thanks to the Great Al Pacino for an amazing conversation and truly just a surreal day. His new show hunters is streaming now on Amazon. Prime and I'm joined now on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast by the producer of this. Fine podcast Maggie Law. Hi Maggie Highway and the producer of the interview for Sunday Today. Airing on NBC Brittany Mania Hybrid. Hey man. Alive holy smokes. You know what I mean. That was out the Chino and he was just hanging out with us in a convertible riding shotgun while I drove him around Beverly Hills. I'm still recovering from a little bit. I can't believe it actually happens that. Go down in your careers. Yeah I think so. I mean we've done a lot of these for this show almost four years Letterman jumps out as being special people who were in some other stratosphere who existed on a different plane. So they never thought you'd meet in your life let alone spend a day with and have some affection within rub relationship that time. So he's up there. He's he's way up there Let's talk about the car. I because that was so visual people the size of a boat as I pointed out at nineteen seventy six cadillac. Eldorado like you'd see in Goodfellas scarface as he sat her. Serpico one of those kind of Arab movies and I was we walked out of the restaurant and he saw the car and he got his shotgun. I got in the driver's seat and he looked at me. He goes all right. We're GONNA hit up to the trailer now because when you shoot a movie you don't actually drive car they put it on a trail. Nato you around and you make it look like you're driving and you chat and I said Oh no no. I'm going to be driving you. And so I just there was Albertine own shotgun riding around Beverly Hills and I was careful not I was gonna say. Did you find it into a pressure? Yes he like. Came alive though during that car. Ride and the sit down he. Was you know as you expected but during the car and you could tell he really enjoyed being out and about you did and I thought for guy that famous. Maybe that's a burden or you want that and We had the top down. Obviously and of course every car stopped and we'd be in traffic and roll down their windows and shouted two and I was waiting to see how he react to that and one as well making his life and he was in no rush really to go home. I kept thinking maybe I should turn it right here and we'll go back to the restaurant. He can go back home and he's a goal appear take a right. He was very concerned about that. Six way intersection in Beverly Hills. It's a desktop. It's a death trap but we managed that together so it was it was I keep using the term dreamlike streamline. How did that come about so I was GONNA say. The dream quickly turned into a nightmare. When sun began to SAG dream for me. Maybe yes for you. In the sunshine. When sun began to set we realized that the car's headlights were not working and they apparently never worked. So your lovely Assistant Taylor. Taylor was is a little more experienced driving than I am so she was tasked driving the car home but did it together. Not I can't stress up a huge car. Huge like nowhere begins right. The front of the car is like several feet. Long imagined without headlights. Without how do you see where the car had to black car? So who so? We had to stop a couple times. Get our bearings straight Taylor trooper interstate we did. We were on sample of our help with some of the lights. Other wearing like a suburban area of that street But Yeah we had a couple of days. We left a wide berth. Between us in the car in front of us just to make sure you get them But we got it home safely and then quickly got into an Uber. And that wasn't like you weren't taking it back to the Hertz car rental that was like a guy's car and like he wasn't even home when returned it so like his friend off the car. We had the over waiting for us so that we can drop in and go through these. Are The sacrifices you guys make for greater yes that is true true producing But I thought Maggie just to back inside the restaurant to be able to sit in a booth with Al Pacino and just say because as I said he was open to everything. It wasn't like you have twenty minutes and you can only talk about the show. That part was fun the Amazon. Show but to say. Hey Godfather go right does have him. Tell the story behind the scenes about how the student didn't want him to be in. Godfather was also surreal. I was GonNa say I feel like it must have been you keep saying dreamlike but just to have like over an hour to sit down and pick Pacino's brain on anything and I was just listening to it. It's just like conversation. I my one thing on the podcast is his voice to always says people recognize him for his voice and I was like I just listen to him for days all of that and he I don't know he was just. You don't know what you're going to get you know. Sometimes some of that famous. Who's been through that much? Hollywood life is not willing to play ball but he walked in wide open. Seemed like he was in a place where he really wanted to reflect on his career. Yeah yeah he said You know his eightieth birthday is coming up mentioned earlier and he's starting to feel a little nostalgic. I think you know he's like I never did these interviews and ever talked about the stuff and I'm ready to do it and we just happened to be the one sitting there perfect I think we sold them with the seventy six Eldorado.

"Hey Guys Willie geist here with another episode of The Sunday. Sit Down podcasts. Thanks as always for clicking and listening along I just going to come out and say anything. I got an all time record you this week. The man the legend the icon word. That's overused but in this case it applies. Al Pacino is my guest as you may know. Pacino doesn't do a lot of interviews. Hasn't done a lot of interviews over the course of his career so with a little bit of arm twisting we convinced him to come and sit down with us and man he is. Let's say he should do more interviews? He's it was open and warm and happy to talk about whatever we wanted to talk about. We got together out in Beverly Hills near his home. A little restaurant called La Dolce Vita. It's got the red leather booths. If you can picture it while we're talking the brick wall the table across from us has the gold-plate that says Frank Sinatra all the tables and named for some old Hollywood legend and he came to play as I think you'll hear We're talking about his latest project. The Amazon Prime Series Hunters which is about a group of Holocaust survivors in nineteen seventies America seeking revenge. We put it that way against Nazis who hidden themselves inside America but that was just the beginning talked about Godfather scarface Serpico all the way through his career and has he says you'll hear he coaching his eightieth birthday. In April he's reflective he's nostalgic and he's finally ready to sit down and think about one of the great careers in the history of show business. So I'll stop talking now so you can start listening to the Great Al Pacino on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast. All right thanks for doing this. I appreciate it thank you. Thank you for strapping immature. Really can't get one of those places lose. La Spots he get Sinatra's booth rickles booth Pacino's nameplate that they're gonNa get you one can understand coming here. I mean it's in the midst of everything. There's this place I I never saw you know. Because it's it's it's alongside other places that are somewhat anonymous and I never heard of it. Yeah this place is called La Dolce Vita do I have that right now. Let's see if we can remember that. So this is A. We've got a lot to talk about exciting time for you. First of all I can't drive around L. A. Got In town without seeing a billboard for the Irish G. Yeah well they they they. They bought them. But how exciting is it for you? After I guess. Twenty seven years to be nominated for another Oscar. Wow what you don't know it's been that long you flash on the last time you would. You would nominated what that was like it. You don't think about it really then. It happens and it's great when it happens wonderful. Does it feel like it's been twenty seven years since nothing feels like it's been twenty seven? Yes from yesterday. Feels like twenty seven years to today but at the time is as you get older you see. Time does his exist. We were talking about your long relationship with Bob. De Niro the and the fact that you guys. Kinda got back together. All these years later with Harvey Keitel expert says he in that group. Was that experience. Like all being one place Mount Rushmore. Well they they've made such great films together and so there I was in fifty years. I thought well it's simple. The actor always feels that way thinks. Well maybe Marty Scorsese just as you never know with people you know you could say something in In print or to someone and they get interpreted the certain way and he thought I didn't for them because but then when you look at it such artist as he is a me just goes by what he feels. He's got there and I've spoken to him over the years and he knows that I really admire his but at the same time unless it it works. So for instance with The the Irishman it was Bob de Niro whose into I think al. How's she play this point of Jimmy Hoffa Great And Go already said. You'd think so you know so. That's how I got it but we had a reading about six or seven years ago in this Tribeca will man they have cameras and so I mean I'm somebody I think they're going to show the reading billboards fat. But it's like a little but we had a reading of it four Marty and it was Bob who organized everything. Bob is a really good produce it to be a great actor. He's a really good produce. So key organized. This reading to win over money was not quite sure. And then we read it and it was clear. The Steve's alien script so so effective so I think that's what did and that was about six or seven years ago so marty wasn't sure about the whole thing. He wasn't sure that you are right for Hoffa. No I think he was he. He wasn't sure about the whole thing. Yeah and then. We had a reading together. Bobby kind of ally Japan. She is people altogether this room weeding and there was about fifty other people watching us and I think they photographed and I remember that day I was doing a play and I paint from the play downtown and read it and it was affected it. It's a good script so that'll be on Netflix. Soon that report that we're going to get their money's worth. Yeah is it. I've heard it both ways from actors is more difficult to play a real life character like Jimmy Hoffa or is it less difficult because you have so much less it. Is You know you always dependent on the taxed of course but would the real characters? You get really. It's it's it's a plus because you've got and especially in our world today. Could you got all the Internet stuff and everybody is you know they just want to look. I mean I watched film on Kevorkian you know on the best of course is when you have the real person you can. You can deal and ask questions that normally askin see the reaction right now. We're thinking doing Frank Lloyd Wright that that's in the sort of wow and eat those so you're wondering I'm watching watching interview with Michael. Mike Wallace home while fifty three year. Him Talk some of the things he said. Yeah so you've got it there with off. I had it all over the place so you just start looking channel. You know we try to channel. Don't even try to channel. You naturally do you so you you watch somebody a lot and I remember Frank Serpico. I really got to know if you've ever seen the film Serpico of course. Yeah well it was And I remember thinking Small kinds of questions and and with Frank. I finally said we're in Montauk. I'd write a house somewhere. We out there on the deck looking at the ocean. I asked him think what what would you do? I mean he got all this pressure coming after your money taking graft whatever. What if you just took the Grafton just put it to charity or something what why? Why did you do anything like that? Just get it over with. So it's not and he looked at me. He was stunned when I was just feeling filling them out and he said well hell if I did that. Then who would I be when I listen to? Beethoven wow I thought. Where's he going day? That's what's in him I'll gi. This is a good part. Wow so hof obviously than ever chance to speak to to find out things you find that when Hoffa was in prison. Guess what he galvanized the prison. Yeah Guy got didn't like the way they were being treated when out afterward and was you know call select for prisoners who mistreated devalued eight. It's he that tells you something about him and his commitment to what. He's doing what he does. Seem with Bob De Niro MMA car. I don't know if it's still in there and so long time ago. Sometimes those things right they leave the premises but the scene was about this relationship. He has the guy who he keeps. Pro Proven present. I think is twenty pro. Who He's having trouble with right he actually says. This is revisionist history. I don't know if this actually said so. But he says to Bob's character in it drive me just had a fight member when they go down to Florida was ten minutes. Late.

"Hey Guys Willie geist here with another episode of The Sunday. Sit Down podcasts. My thanks as always for clicking and listening along really excited to bring you our gets this week. SNL CAST member now in her eighth season. The hilarious eighty Bryant. She has been funny since I think the moment she got got on the show in two thousand twelve. She came in with a class that includes Kate McKinnon longtime buddies. Now they share an office together at Thirty Rockefeller Center Jenner. We're sitting right now. They write together in that tiny little office. They laughed together. They cry about their MOMS together. As you'll hear in this interview eighty the Brings US some of the best characters on the show for my money. Little Baby Eighty perhaps her best known in those snl digital shorts that started the superstar females females of SNL talker. Bell is another favourite. She of course played Sarah Huckabee Sanders the former White House press secretary and Meghan McCain on the view so we get into all of it with SNL. She grew up in Phoenix watching the show. Loving cast members like Sharyo Terry and Molly Shannon. She got into theater camp than she did. A little Improv camp. She moved to Chicago for College. She got Involved at Second City the famed theatre group that has produced so many snl stars and she was often running at twenty five years old. Landed her job on. SNL So we'll talk through that audition and everything about SNL but also getting getting into the second season of her show shrill on Hulu which is deeply personal show for her. She's the executive producer. She's the writer and the star of Shrill it's based on a bestselling memoir and it deals a lot with body image. Something you'll hear in our conversation that eighty has dealt with for most of her life and something she still deals with today. But you'll talk about the moment when she realized she didn't need to think about it the way she'd been thinking about it her whole life. It's a really really funny show. But it's also a touching show. She's great in it so eighty and I got together a couple of weeks ago when Scarlett Johansson was hosting SNL and Nile Horan formerly of one direction fame was the musical guest Scarlet obviously is engaged to Colin Jost head writer of the show Oh and also the host of weekend update so Scarlett has done the show a bunch. She's a vet. She knows how it works inside and out so eight and I kind of talked about what week was gonna look like in the process and we got together at a diner called big daddy's diner here in New York City We're seeing a booth just to paint the picture for you and it's not a classic New York Diner. Sort of kitschy diner. Think Bright Colors old seventies action figures lunchboxes from your a youth. Just a lot of crap around if I'm being honest. Good kitschy crap so here now from big daddy's diner is eighty bryant eighty. Thanks for doing this my pleasure her usual spot yeah. This is our our spots. I dressed for it perfect. You're very matching matching with our wallpaper. Hey we were just talking about. SNL On this being a show week. You're so I think a lot of curiously process. No Monday through the pitch day where the host comes in never been meets the host of the UK the host of this this week scarlet scarlet. And then what happens. Today we're sitting together on Tuesday. What was the rest of the week? Look by Tuesday is like it's writing a kind of all it is so we'll basically you'll kind of right different sketches all night long and each one could take a different amount of time so it just really depends but most people go home around four or five. Most of the writers. Don't go. Oh yeah an all night and they Most of the writers don't go home they sleep there and then work all day Wednesday Bahasa Twenty four hour shift. It ends up being that way. Yeah so like from your point of view today sweep like what are you coming in with like wh. What's your new so stressed? It shouldn't be here. I should be thinking. No I mean it's different every week. I don't know sometimes I try to just have like a kernel of an idea. Did that might even just be like a character's attitude or like a location or something and then you kind of sit with a writer and talk through what what do you think and could the hosts do and you know just trying to serve them and figure it out right now. What does that balance? Because I've heard different cast member say different things over the years of like a host of comes with a lot of ideas okay. That one's good focus on one that you think I mean it's funny because I feel like that mostly falls too like the producers to kind of talk them through or writing supervisors and then sometimes people will get like an assigned someone the hosts idea because they might have an idea and then it's like I'm rarely going to be the one to like. Make that happen for them. You know but But still kind of just. It depends on Wednesday. Then do you have a pretty good sense of basically what's GonNa be in the show after you read through it at the table and you say that work. That didn't work. It's really hard to predict because we read like forty sketches at the table. Read and then when it's done we have about an hour hour and a half where we're sitting waiting. While the producers who served in the host star in a meeting like picking and of course that time is all of us being like this'll get in that will get in or whatever but it it is. There's so many other factors at play like. Does the host have to change out of something into something really quickly. How can how can that work? Well then we probably can't do the sketch or even like locations in the studio like you can't have four things in a row at home base so one sketch might be out because it there's so so many factors so at least that's what I tell myself l. They'll geography logistics against. Oh Gosh I don't think people realize is it home. If you've ever been to see US alive the minute you guys go to commercial break. It's an all out rent Donna and wardrobes grabbing. Somebody's hand they're going going into a curtain two sets of changing. It's total chaos. Even though you guys come back from break and look like you've been cool all the time. The only time I ever feel like an athlete they shared off and like I think this is. What do people do race? Sounds so this is your season season. Do you still get that rush. That high at eleven thirty on Saturday night when the opening sketch starts and then you hear the the famous music. I'm so I I do. I still really love it and I would say I'm war. Get a rush like the band. When I hear the music of the opening opening credits I still remember how I felt the first time I heard like my name in the credits and that is insane and I don't know I also like I always feel overwhelmed when like there's a sketch that's really hard to execute and we mail it? You know that those are like especially invigorating. Now that I've been there so Dang when you started eight seasons ago would you've ever dreamed that you'd be sitting here with talking about your eight season on. SNL and one of the the stars of the show. And also I mean my whole first season I was just convinced I was going to be fired the whole year and was crying all the time thing. This this is it. It's over now so it's so nice to be their intake. You'll really comfortable there which I kind of never thought I would. Yes you know you. You guys put you in Kate incessantly their group of of women in particular I think on the show who were like really the heart of the show I think so as a huge fan the end of the show forever and ever and ever you have the thing. Where if you're in the sketch and I would say this about Kristen? Wig Will Ferrell and Chris Farley. It's going to be good evening because even if it's not even if the sort of the idea doesn't work you're going to react in some way or we're going to deliver something to kind of save it What do you think we hear? People say like Eighty Bryant is one of the stars of SNL like she's she'd kate or the stars of bad I mean that's super super overwhelming and insane and I also just like it doesn't feel true to me still like I feel very like keeping the ultimate like you know I dunno Orlyk Fred or the people started with and felt really like in always But I don't know it's so overwhelming because again I really well growing up. It just felt incredibly far for me because I'm like from Arizona not a Hollywood town and I don't know said now to be there. I have some normalcy to it is bizarre. Yeah yes well it's true I mean you guys are I think that the heart of the show and you sort of made see the point of doing like the girl group videos do you have that sense of sort of empowerment with your group of women on the show and I think like at least for me. It was just like a survival tactic. In the beginning I was like oh I feel like I'd rather do something with my friend alone or my friends or just felt stronger together kind of thing things and so I feel like we kind of started writing from that place of like. I love doing bits with Kate and we share an office. Let's write something you you know those kinds of things like it just kind of happens naturally but it is like it's so much easier to do something with the POW. Wow and to be able to look in their eyes doesn't like I trust you so that's kind of how it started but then it was just like fun so the US. Kate Sharon office. Yeah that I think that comes across the show to when it's just the two of you doing the smoker at the update day like you guys have sort of an unspoken thing where again. It's going to be good if the two of you are in there did you. Yeah no her before the show or not at all we were just hired the same year and we really hit it off really quickly and I think we both are kind of like quiet. Dorks a work really hard you know are like care a lot and so we. We just found it very quickly. What's it like in that office when the two of your bouncing ideas each other I think people probably imagine our office is to be very fun? But it's actually a lot of us like quietly talking about how much we care about our mothers like quietly talking about our can earn deep deep worries. But that's very bonding to so it's not just a big. Yuck fest no I mean it is a lot of the time and like we. We just just did a sketch last week. That was sort of us like trying to kill each other. That just came out of us like joking around doing that. So so you've got the the the big headline famous characters that you do a little baby. Sure Right yes. We're.
"willie" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist

She feels like she's been in our lives for a long time but it's only been really super super diehard fan brave but she's been at this for twenty years. I was gonna say that's what i found out. I had no idea she said she started stand up in nineteen ninety seven so it's almost twenty years that she's been at this but really only came out on the scene about two years ago and she it has she'll talk about all this but her childhood is not to be believed. She grew up in south central los angeles. Her father left the family. When tiffany was three years old a few years after that her mother got into a bad car accident had permanent brain damage became abusive yeah tiffany <hes> when she was twelve of years old tiffany and her siblings were split up and put into foster homes so she grew up in the foster care system <hes> and then she tells the story of being a sixteen year old and her social worker saying you've got a choice we can send you to a mental hospital or you can go to comedy camel laugh to channel all this crazy energy energy. Yeah i love that i mean i think it's it's an incredible story and one that i had no idea about but and she talks about on the podcasts about how you know turn that darkness into light and the comedy the way she got through it with comedy so it's just it's so interesting because you talks about being the light because there was so much darkness and she thought okay my job in this family in this neighborhood is to be the light she's <hes>. She took jobs being what she calls an energy. I was gonna say that was one of my favorite things. I learned about an oh and energy producer producer. I love that energy producer. What does that mean exactly music. You go in and you produce enters the energy to go to a corporate event. I love it. Mitzvah hype hype man yeah exactly heard her family's type person she was her neighborhoods high person that she was the high school mascot to yes yes fun faster choose the only mascot and that big like wildcat suit or who talk mascot yeah exactly i'm gonna talk and she turned that into a little cash rush to so very resourceful very scrappy. I mean if you've seen her in. Any of the movies senior do stand up or netflix special if you've seen her <hes> in and on s._n._l. Funny she is in her new movie which is called the kitchen which he co stars with melissa mccarthy and elizabeth. Moss has nothing to do with any of that right total turn in drama. It's basically a gangster movie like martin. Score says he goodfellas casino kind of movie where you're sort of based on the cast waiting right as you say you're gonna. I think it's going to be funny and it just isn't and then no serious hard core kind of violent. Well acted right gangster movie. I love it yeah so she's really good. It's a great cast. You're just you're just going to be entertained. She starts speaking areas at one point. There's a lot going on in this interview with the great tiffany haddish on the sunday. Sit down podcast tiffany. Thanks for doing this. Thank you feel like we already kind of had our little interview but we can start from the top see if the story stay the same <hes>. I was just saying to you watching the kitchen. I walked in with obviously an impression of who you are which is hysterically funny and impressionable russian of melissa. Mccarthy is hysterically funny. I thought i was going to laugh in about ten minutes in i was like oh no this is something different. So how do you describe the movie because because it is different than what your audience is have seen from you. I would describe it as a a real mobster movie against the movie. I mean what's the difference between mobster in gangster like the mob in a gang. What's the difference. I don't know i think gangsters more old school like twenty. S like al capone mob might be he like seventies and eighties. I'm going to just throw it i i don't i'm trying to figure it out. Maybe fuits versus okay yes. I don't know this is more jeans suits. I mean it's the seventy so so it's it's three wives right all married to italian mobsters <hes> not italian irish mobsters married to irish mobsters and there has was let's go to jail and they decided that they're going to take over the business because they're struggling financially and they come with the italian mom developed this really awesome system and do better at gangsta steph or mobster business being their own husbands did and when it has come amount of jail is the issue because you know it's the seventies then right i don't i don't know if they're nothing like the men today because because before they went to jail you all were not treated well at all right not treated well and we earned our respect and being treated well and then a man came home thinking oh they could do the same thing. She's not allowed not allowed them. Where we different running things now involved. It's about the evolution say and so yes some really crazy. Gangsta stuff happens and i enjoyed watching say the first time i saw the movie i i had to get up in the middle and walk out for a second like pull myself together really and they come back in and finished watching it. 'cause i was having a hard time like we were shooting it. I was having a hard time. I'm looking at myself in the mirror because i looked so much like my mom when i was a little girl and and i realized oh i got mommy issues. I need to work out right and and i thought oh they'll just it'll pass finish this movie. I'm just sway. I look then when i saw the movie and i saw my mom on screen like i just was looking. I'm like i'm looking yeah. My mother and i walked out of the theater crying at the end and my mom she's behind me. She's crying to like why you cry. What's wrong with two. She was like thank you stop. She was thinking the same thing. I and i was like we probably need to go to council these things that need to be said and we a male spider house well. That's a good way to pay for that so this was at the premiere because you brought your mom my mom i scream for screens and that's that's when it hits you so much. It's so funny how movies involved because this definitely changed santa that i screen okay yeah so so so. Is this something you were looking for tiffany because you've done so many comedies. You've been on this run of hit comedies. Did you say to yourself in terms of your career. I want to do something a little different this time now well what happened was what had happened with write the script that came across my manager's desk and my manager was looking for predominantly copies openings right and his assistant read the script. It was like this'll be great for typical man. We don't think so did tiffany. I got the state but i'll tell nobody okay. I was like okay. I'm telling you so. I really you know she's like. I think this'll be really good for you. I read it. I was like what is this based off of a and a comic book. I was like what got the comic book read. The book read the script again. I was like this is my thing like link me up with this director. How do i meet the director director. <hes> the person that wrote this is so smart. I want to meet the director. She's like the rector is the writer. I was like big linked meet up with the man who got this par- who won't elitist caste anybody yet so i'm always like we'll give me andrea andrea pirlo brimmerton me and she's trying to set up the meeting. It was hard for the meeting and then at that time you know growth trip that came out. Oughta different agencies was on me and i was like if y'all want me you bring me andrea birla really so use that as leverage gangsta mode had to produce his first dan. I got to me andrea and convinced her. Why be right. She's like you always right now. She wasn't sure at first 'cause she picks me straight comedian right but once she had compensation when she realized i saw shia bostitch. There's no question about that. No one would ever doubt that so. Was it fun for you. Then i mean didn't have edison mind but once you saw it you knew you wanna play this kind of character and i knew this was like right in my wheelhouse because i've grown up around that type of environment i know with that environment is i know how you have to move around those type of men you need to communicate with them in order to demonstrate some sort of power or let them think they have have all the power while you just you know moving things around so i knew that i'm going to have a good time doing this and and when i found that melissa was online and then elisabeth the biff mosses on i'm like oh this is about to be this is about to be super now mind you. I know neither one of them and there was a small part of me. That was like what if they're like. Divas super hollywood shakes within. I know how to deal with those. I'll be like i can get out of here. You don't talk to those people to like. Get the hell out and you didn't have to do that with them didn't have to do that all turns out. They weirdos just like me so we laughed a lot we did. There's a lot of online shopping. I got them to try things they never had before like pickles dipped in kula powder pickles and cooling powell. Have you not had okay. They said it was nasty but that's because they don't have the palley. Para sweetened acquired tastes delicious. Sometimes you put now layers in the middle of the pickle and let that dissolve the pickle. Dennis like autumn is good as good for your skin or you put a peppermint in the middle of the you've got to get that whole pickle took money you pick with like this put right in the middle poop in his good. You say it's good for your skin. It is eating pickles cucumber cucumber. Did you invent the pickles in the kool-aid powder. That's happening from ah kuwait. We remember remember funded of course so you the candy stick a pickle any ban right right right s some guys you know you probably have.

Act does a monologue and that's it but what's interesting about it is it was such a huge hit sold out hit at the public theater off Broadway that they wanted to bring it to Broadway <hes> but he told me before we started and I think he won't mind me saying that this is he thinks the best thing he's ever done and this is the third time he's done Broadway and he talks about just totally breaking the fourth wall he said it's such a personal show and it's about fathers and sons and children and death in life and all those things that so deep in it touches so many people that they WanNa talk you want somebody to talk to after and he's like WanNa talk to the guys who are in the show so he's super invested in this. It's really <hes> it's a really really amazing piece of writing and performance by Tom Sturridge and Jake Gyllenhaal so here jake and me at the Hudson Theater in New York City we Wanna point out you'll hear later in the interview when we walked out into the theater itself. It was still under construction. I think it's fair to you say the ceiling was falling in a bit but here now on the Sunday sit down podcast Oscar nominee Jake Jilin Hall. Thank you thank you for doing this man. Let's talk about the play yeah <hes> seawall a life slam it right slash say your piano number on instagram all slash <hes>. What is this play about? I mean it's a lot to explain. It's heavy. It's to acts you have an entire monologue to yourself people thinking about coming coming to see it. What will they see when they walk into this theater? It's a show about faith and family and the mess and comedy life you know it's about really actually about two fathers and about for my character about a father who's just someone's just about to become a father and also he goes back into his relationship with his own father and the passing of his father and how that makes him feel becoming a father and and <hes> the longing and then the love for his child who's born and time kind of becomes a very relative thing in my piece and I go back and forth between moments and experiences of I've had in as a character in my life and it's <music>. It's moving. I mean it's some of the most beautiful writing I have ever read. You know and I wanted to do it for five years and <hes> because it semi-autobiographical the writer nick pain said no he really wrote it from self L. Factually as it catharsis because of the things he went through and <hes> I beg for five years and then he find let us do it at the public and then the response was so overwhelming there from the people who saw it that we decided hey stick big Broadway for nine weeks and they agreed and we're here so it's definitely a different feel because it's as I said one act with Tom. Yep He's doing his thing yeah and then you sort of weight through that act and come out and do yours our the two acts related. I mean the first piece Tom's piece is. It's incredible. It's sort of meant and a lot of ways to shake up. Shake us up as it's and it is he's a father is on vacation with his family and it's really about his daughter daughter and his wife and the love of his wife I think the similarities between the two of them is that these are two men who deeply love their wives which is <hes> oddly becoming. Rare is a theme in a lot of particularly theatrical work that I've seen they're just madly in love with them and grappling with what it's like to be this parental figure you know to be the person holding the hand of this this little being and then depending on you and every possible way and I I think they're linked because they're about love and loss and the idea that in order to love anything the inevitability of losses there that's how we love and why we love and why we cherish it and so that's how they're linked but also also we share the stage I'm off stage when he's on stage and vice versa I'm in the wings with him. When he's performing and vice versa I mean we know each other nightly where real partnership and we actually do spend time on stage together in the show? So what does that like just as a practical matter as an actor Sir be in the wings watching another show and waiting for your moment to come out. Is that hard he'd stay in character even during his piece or how do you do it fees. These pieces are special that there's not the idea of character doesn't really exist <hes> there are distinct characters in a way but really it's about each audience that comes in every night and the difference in all of them. I mean you can say that about what every show you see obviously every different but we interact with them so to watch him interact. I can start feeling energy the audience and what kind of group they are if they're out for a laugh if they're not for laugh if they're like and I a._M.. Cheering him on you know we can't do this about each other. These pieces are sort of acts of vulnerability and what he does every night <hes> how far he goes how much he shares how much he opens his heart. I like to think I'm a part of that him knowing that I'm in the wings like a team member and saying like you got this I got you if anything happens you know and <hes> and then I actually I don't really think about my piece. You know we've worked on them so much Sh- every nice different I mean I I sometimes he's changed wardrobe to I have I have a closet as opposed to a one wardrobe that I wear every night so it switches and my God I feel like wearing shoes bore boots or whatever it's it's different. Every night is the performance different every night in other words you go out there. Obviously you've got the peace or doing the monologue but the way you play to the crowd or joke you may or may not make based on what you're seeing out that Oh yeah I mean stuff happens with them and we respond to it. Now you hear these stories stories about actors saying all the cell phone went off with a terrible thing and love it when cell phones going off. I mean so if you come let yourself but I mean if it does and there've been moments where I've said people. Do you WANNA get that. Do you want to pick it up and not in a like a provocative way for real like we're here together. If my cell phone went off. Maybe I pick it up. Turn it off and there is no hierarchy of actor on stage. We are all here and what I think is really cool. Is You know in sometimes people are I've been in shows where people are crying thinking about things they've been through having the birth of their own child. You know the potential loss of the their pair who may the aging or going through whatever they may be going through and and I'll wait for them Oh we're all not acknowledged them but and they're also also times that I just we go through the audience like I. It's not like a circus Soleil. That's actually the job always say we're like when rehearsals like maybe I should go in the audience and it was like feels little circus away you know when you're in the audience please. Don't there are the rare fewer like jabbering me on stage like I don't want to go on stage which is weird but <hes> yeah we I go through the audience interaction them in certain ways never put anyone on the spot. You know it's I can't so hard to explain until you come but it's a very special experience. We've tried to recreate some of the cell phone distraction with active construction seen right outside our window notes. I can see you hold for audio. You guys right on audio yeah yeah. I don't think there's any way <hes> so as you mentioned. This was a big hit at the public theater here in New York City. People don't know this sort of an incubator for for great theater. Does it the show change at all on Broadway or or is it exactly the same show lifted put in this theater. The nature of the show is that it never stays the same so the space itself the season. It's a different season we did it in the wintertime are wardrobe changes. The set is changing a bit lighting is changing <hes> What we learned from the audiences because we have a lot of talk backs and we'll continue to have post show come out and talk to the audience because what we learned is that people have a lot of stories that they wanNA share that the stories we share it just preempt them to WanNa share theirs and were there to listen. I mean they've sat there. Listen to us for two hours. So you know things they learn things they tell us back have been some of the most incredible moments had in my life ending my work so <hes> but that's an amazing thing unusual thing to a lot of theater and I've never seen the two stars I don't think come out and stand at the front of the stage and take questions and listen after they've been through this emotionally exhausting experience variance yeah. Why is that part of it something that you and Tom WanNa do? It's the reason we're going to Broadway because I think I don't think we realize the impact these stories that have I have this moment. I say the Tom All time I stated their imaginations turn on because with the monologue which seems like such an actor being indulgent the act to among lock you know sites acting class one or something these have this feeling of you can feel everybody go into their own life. They they all kind of go back and they go. Oh my children my father my mother you know whatever the experience might be and you can feel you can feel the silence in fact we were at the public theater. We had to install doors backstage because there are a number if per production's going on in the public theater all at once and we shared dressing rooms and people are moving in and out and they had to put doors on the stage entrances because even tiptoeing you could hear because it was so quiet at times so it has like. And speaking of construction always there was I remember night where there's truck backing up for like forty five seconds to a minute and a half with the audience yeah after a while I was like okay I think I need to stop distracting.

"Hey, guys, Willie Geist here with another episode of the Sunday, sit down podcast, my thanks as always perplexing and listening along with us and a special welcome this week to all us game of thrones geek signs that turn absolutely of endearment. John snow himself kit Harrington is my guest this week on the podcast. We got together at the end of a long press tour as he prepared for the launch of season eight on HBO, perhaps the most anticipated most debated most talked about most speculated about series finale of all time. Can I say that maybe it is six episodes coming up game of thrones on HBO by the time? You've listened to this maybe Vardi seen episode one. He couldn't say much. They HBO has the lips of the actors the crew that casts. Everybody's so tightly sealed that I had to dig. And pry got a couple of things out of it for you. We had to stop a couple of times you'll hear kit. Ask the publicists if he's allowed to talk. About that. That's how seriously they take the series, man. It's been a decade long journey for him. The cool thing about kit Harrington, which I didn't fully realize I started digging in on his background is game of thrones was his first job onscreen. He was a theater actor he'd been in drama school in London when he won the lead in warhorse the play in the West End and from there he got an audition for this new show. They were talking about called game of thrones. He got the role when he was twenty two years old shot the pilot at that age and over the next decade, obviously game of thrones became what game of thrones is and he became who. He is based on the strength of this one show. So we talk about what kind of ride that's been for him over a decade going from anonymous stage actor for the most part to most of the world wouldn't of known as name, obviously to now one of the most famous actors in the world, and what comes after this. Where do you go from game of thrones? He's got an interesting take on that that he sort of got the thing right away. Hey that most actors worked their whole careers to get to which is big fame and financial stability. He's got both of those things now. So it's a question of what does he want to do with it? And he'll talk about that whether or not your game of thrones fan. I think you'll love the conversation with a super interesting guy with a great story to tell kit Harrington Jon snow himself right now on the Sunday. Sit down podcast get thank you for doing this my friends. Appreciate it. Thank you for having me before we talk about game of thrones. I wanna ask you about something. You just finished a couple of days ago, which was SNL. What was that experience like for you first time hosting? Yeah. It was I think it was on like look back. Some of the people hosted that some of the names that come out of it. The factor to what with and Michaels for the week. Amazing like book stuff, but not what was interesting about. It was it was a two medium. I think. There's no other like it in a live TV of crossed with this. So it's there's nothing like out this if trying new medium, it some median, it's it's. Yeah. What's it like at eleven thirty pm east coast time when those doors open you walk out onto the stage, and it's not rehearsal anymore. It's live butterflies or their nerves. What does that feel like I think I think they get you into such kind of? You say busy for the week that. Yeah, you saw like top. I've done. It's just like the knowledge that the two really. Yeah. I do Russell just before. So so you go from there hostile you have 'bout Hoffa. Now, you look at the show again, he goes straightens the actual show and not say he's just low like really turned on him rush. All right. So now onto onto game of thrones just quickly if you could kit recap the first seven seasons for me, just thirty seconds or so, okay. Dashi chart do that. Really that worth the was one king. He died that would then multiple kings he fought. And then to disrupt that the ultimate king himself the night king came and attacked seven kingdoms which forced the rest of those kings and remaining power imbalances to unite against him. That was fifteen seconds. Those incredible. I've made any sense. It made enough Senate. Okay. What's it like to be sitting here? Kid at the end of this decade of your life as season eight is about to be launched and this series will end in a matter of weeks. What are you feeling right now? I think it's interesting. We've been all still at what he feeling and it's a it's a it's a. It's a genuine question and one I think people Nyla would feel off the finish that many seasons of something that. Appall of your life, which has been so significant is very hard to sum up. I don't I don't know really kind of how to some those feelings up it, some parts sadness. It's some post joy at some pulse. Relief.

"I'll open books I don't really have time for that. And I'd like to to get down to the nitty gritty, and I was like, I don't know if I can I don't know if I can or if I want to do that. I don't know if I wanna spend my life, creating an image. I spend so much of my life pretending to be someone else, which I really love like as an actor. I don't wanna do that offscreen. And so I was like if that's the deal. I don't know if I'm going to be able to do it. I did have a publicist early on. And this is a slight warning to my other publicist sitting over there. I came out of an interview. And she said you use your hands too much, you could've stopped doing that. Just become you know, when you talk when you just you just stick too much, just keep the hands down. And I remember looking to us at on. This is gonna work out. I said I don't want to sit in an interview with Willie thinking about my hands. I want to have a conversation, right? We will actually genuinely interested to find out about William. I'm interested to hear. How does his job? If I'm thinking hands down. This is going to be really boring. So that's probably what I was referring to is in the lesson of your success, though, that you don't have to be a brand you don't have to be a page. Yes. Exceed by being yourself. Yeah. I well. Thanks. I. Even from the choices I made. And this is where I gripe advice from my agent, Patrick Wassall. And I'm saying that because apart from the us because no one mentions agent, right? But Patrick all along was like, the you you love the theatre. You wanna do old different types of things you want to be musicals? And you're going to do everything I said, I see the thirty forty journey and in thirty forty years, you're going to be theater. You remember Broadway. You're gonna do plays. You're gonna musicals you're gonna do movies comedies action. You gonna do everything and he had a plan from the beginning of how to do everything. And there was a point in my career. I remember. Around about it hasn't three or four where I'll people were saying and journalists were saying like people don't really know how to pigeonhole you. And it's sort of diminishing returns, some people don't really understand who you are. And. And now, actually really that's become. Probably what I'm known for. Thank goodness. And it was actually just what I wanted to do. And that my agent said that to me from the very beginning. So if there's a. In a stray we say Dag heard the word Dag. Sure, you understand what a Dag is. I've heard it from. Being a Dag New Zealand cameraman's having a little off. I'm deck. Like what you see is. What you get right? So. Yeah, it's like, hey, you can be a Dag and still work in this business. The real many the real meaning is actually got nothing to do with it. But a day is a goofball. Would you say goop full in American right? You would say like, what did you say is what you get the literal. Translation, translation, which you will probably cut from this interview. It's the dried up who that you get on a sheep run. You know, when when they do a little bit skit, quote in the hair that's called a Dag. I think we can wrap this now. Speaking of rapper Eminem could use day easily. Easily in a self. Kill kill me. She's one firing.

"He was. Was a long time ago. Isn't that just a facade, Hugh? Total facade. Yeah. No. And I'm ready to break. The songs now Willie there. There. Can't play wolverine without having a little bit of that inside you somewhere. Now. It's the way I was brought up. Yeah. I mean. I'm still show people say that to me and my dad, it'd be going. Not I didn't like the way like you didn't shake you didn't call Mr. right? Mr. MRs, sir. Like, I was I saw you. But your elbows on the table come on. Like, he's you know, I was really brought up from my mom and dad actually with with that since that everybody needs to feel appreciated. My mom's still says that to this day and every body needs to feel appreciated. So wherever you go. Don't ever forget that. And it doesn't matter who you are and the pecking order make sure people feel that. So I don't know if that's interpreted as nice, it's just probably a good upbringing, and it probably feels one just being myself credit for those right? Yeah. Night on say, the private man, right? Good. By the way. I am an act like, you know, Willie. This is an hour. I can play an ice for an hour. Is widows lights go off storms out of here. And I'm just giving myself a sentence literally. Everyone's like, I'm gonna catch the moment. Like. I don't know if you'll remember this. You didn't interview with Rolling Stone in the year two thousand well, right? When X men was right? And you were asked about becoming famous, right? And you said I fear becoming famous right? Do you? Remember, what you were feeling in that moment when you were on the precipice, you weren't sure what was going to happen to your life. You said I don't know if I have the the will to be a star that people look up to in. I actually I had forgotten that moment when you when you're early on, and you create you get a lot of advice from people you've gotta be like this. So if you're movie star backed in the thinking was. You've got to be mysterious. Don't give up much of yourself. Hold everything. Back key people wanting more be mystery and mad unco. It's been five minutes when I'm completely the opposite. I don't really like all of my friends..

"I was reading an interview last night where you said when your mother left, the family, it didn't anger you. And you don't hold that anger with you is that still the case. And if so how did you get past that? It took a little work and still does I think? The more you come to terms with stuff that happened in childhood. The better everybody is you know off. And also, I think once you start to become an adult you understand. Relationships difficulties. How life can be hot for everybody. Then I started to understand my mom, but I ended, but I somehow never really had messes amount of anger. I think I've always felt love from both of them even though that didn't work out, and I kind of wish and I think now in this day and age probably would have worked at different. It was a different time back then, but I've come to place a pace with it. And you know, it's still takes a bit of work. I'm sure my kids would be saying the same thing. My my parents. But you, and you don't it's not the kind of thing that you carry with you today. You I realize more and more than we are. Very much some of not just how genetics but the way we were brought up, and I see some I just see so many more positive 's the negatives genuinely see that and feel that and yeah, I have to work on I do have to work on things. And sometimes I don't know if that's just me and everybody in I did I live or if that is stuff that was because of my particular upbringing, but I'm. Lucky that I don't feel. I have anything that. I wish I could have said to them. Yeah. And you chose wisely. When we're looking for a wife, I think it's fair to say hall. Yeah. I mean with all due respect. I get way have. And I if I didn't know that intrinsically which I do literally everyone including you Willie. When I saw you guys. You'll wife is fantastic. That's what everyone like, you're great. But you'll wife, and it's the truth, but I am a very indecisive person. So when things are clear to me, it is the greatest relief from taking a job to what to order on the menu to getting married. I am indecisive super indecisive pros cons on you to weeks in two meeting that we were going to be together for the rest of our life. I actually before we fell in love, I had his innate knowledge that we were going to be friends for the rest of off now in our business. We're all friends, of course. But you don't know if you're going to be really in each other's. And I knew that. So there was a connection way back, and she I'll tell you I have learned how to live life. And I certainly I feel like there's so many lines for movies. Like, I'm certainly a better man because of fischel isn't there something to be said to for meeting someone that early in your career? Yeah. She didn't know wolverine. She showman. She knew as a young actor who was Yemen up in the future wasn't so certain. Well, she speak the truth and still distrust, and she totally I it's funny. Actually, she was a one point gonna break out with me. She was like I didn't use resolution no actors, no one on the food was not. But she I do think my lucky stars that. We've been through everything together. And so I mean in the end, that's what marriage is you know, there's ups. I don't care who you are is ups and downs to every relationship. But I think it's difficult, and I see it in colleagues who are famous and out. They dating is a God Innis to them because then auto as one hundred percent sure people's motives and also they've they change can change quite quickly. When you get that kind of attention. So the Deb, and I always say no body when she fell in love with the, you know, and so in the end, what do you want from your life partner, you want to be fully scene, and you want to be out of fully see them exactly who you really are gnawed any kind of label or anything anyone puts on Deb. And I had that from the beginning. People talk about you as the nicest star in Hollywood, a guy who no matter how big he's got how much money is movies. Make he is who he is..

"Being taken more seriously. So that's that's a, that's a vital shift going. One actress recently said there's not an actress in Hollywood who hasn't in some form actually harass. Right, agree with that. I absolutely. I don't think there's a woman in the world who has been sexually harassed that the differences that that might kind of matter now, you know, it was just so taken for granted that that was normal and something that we had to accommodate and internalize, and and now we might not have to and that's huge. That's something you've experienced in Hollywood. Yeah, I, I think more just like a woman in the world as much as a as a woman in my industry, and I think you know the the, the, the changes that are happening in our industry are starring reverbrate into every domain and every field, and that's really thrilling. Yeah. Okay. So if all I can't get a straight answer for if you're finished after season eight of home, do you have things on the horizon that you want to go do now if homeland wraps up and we'll be this amazing chapter, I'm thinking about other things a little bit a little bit. I can't. They would they? All right. Acting for sure. I would. I really, I turned on, I really like to act into your good. This many decades I haven't. I haven't tired of it, so I will definitely want to continue doing that. I think if anything I might want to produce material as well, I've, I've gotten to learn what that means within the context of homeland, and that's been really exciting and you know, so I'd like to do more of that, but not going to be looking to count or something I don't. I don't think I would. I would do all that well in the world of accounting. Yeah, to learn. Now only. Only acting. Exactly. Thanks. Thank you. Yeah.
