Fantasy Football Forecast: One BIG THING you should know for every Week 2 matchup
"I sit out the way New Orleans versus Las Vegas raters. We saw New Orleans showcase really really solid, really great defensive performance against Tom. Brady and the buccaneers They were pretty on disappointed as a team, lot of penalties on their defensive side of the front. The saints rebel to take advantage of that. La Raiders played against the Carolina Panthers last week and gave up thirty points. It's very possible that New Orleans doesn't look as Resi as they did against a really solid defensive front in Tampa. Bay and they might have their way with a raiders team that is still kind of pretty young and trying to get their footing and all this stuff. They don't they had an injury to majority of their wide receivers in the last game. So Dan, Waller seems to be their only solid option. At the receiving side of things that might mean there in Waller's uptick in target's share and my means, he gets an ends on this year or this week maybe something good happens for him I'm buying all the stock now I'm Kamara right now for this game, this should be Alvin Kamara. KAMERA's two touchdown, a hundred yards from scrimmage plus game. This is this is the one I wouldn't see why would be any otherwise and to be quite frank. I think that a lot of players on seem to have a really big game and this would be a really fun game to see trae Kwan Smith. I'm going to bring them up again. This'll be a fun game Trey Smith. Look to be a solid. Relieving game just for brevity and sake of saving saints, fans of fantasy fans alike, some worry as to what the saints offense can look like without Michael Thomas Soaking up a lot of the defensive pressure. All right. So Fancy implications all over the place you know Josh Jacobs. This could be a really good test to see just how much they believe in Josh Jacobs as a pass catcher because I don't know how much he's going to be able to do in the run game considering New Orleans is when had and still does on one of the better run defenses in all the football. I think the best game. Pound for pound this week has to be the night game on NBC, where New England is playing against Seattle that they're going to be playing in Seattle New England the we have a kind of banged up cam and she says it's the there's no hamstring issue but. Of Most people are saying that he does, Kinda. Have a little bit of a hamstring thing going on and we'll see how that affects him with all read option stuff and what we saw from last Sunday's performance maybe we started to see cam throw a little bit more, and then we can really see just what this doing his offense really has to offer for them sure that bill will have them ready for whatever and we saw sea hawks offense that basically let Russell Wilson do what people have been asking. Them to let Russell. Wilson do for basically the majority of the back half of the dense. You know twenty seventeen was to let Russ Cook and Cook did Russell Wilson? Do He only missed four passes? He had A. Great amount of yardage great touchdown passes de que look. Nice at times he did have some drops of course, Tyler Lockett looked really good. Chris Carson looked amazing. In the past game. We had some really good screens run in for touchdowns. They got tight ends involved the plethora tight ends at the seahawks own and their defense was literally flying around all over the place. Now, there are a lot of garbage time touchdown stuff in that Falcons game that I'm not GonNa hold against the defense when it mattered. Jamal Adams and of course. Everybody else in that defense just looked phenomenal. They just looked physical. They looked like they were flying around and making plays they look very formidable as team very formidable. So. That is a game as the May have a lot of implemented implications on things so KEEP IN MIND I think one of the better secondaries in the League is New England's granted they played against. The, dolphins but they did not allow that many receptions or receiving yards at all for either receiver on the dolphins and Tyler Lockett, and care very athletic fast guys but. It's going to be tough. Is GonNa be a tough about we'll see what happens. They may have to change up the strategy of leading Russ Cook for this game in particular and work through the old tried and true run the ball and try to make something happen later on in the game. But for US Russell Wilson owners like myself I hope they just let him throw the ball a little bit more that'd be nice. That would be fun I think we'd all like to enjoy that. So moving on towards another game I think the Baltimore Game at four, twenty, five eastern standard time on CBS is going to be a good one, Baltimore versus Houston. This game can go I think Houston is a team that kid look Jacqueline Hyde and they've been jekyll and Hyde ever since the Shawn Watson is come on that team and. Not Sage. It's the Sean played bad last Thursday. But he definitely did not look comfortable one hundred percent of the time and you just was trying to make plays. His offensive line wasn't there fully stout at all and when it was time to just throw throw throw things Kinda got out of hand for Houston Houston can't be a team that gets to behind too quickly or else it is going to be nightmarish for the offensive line. And it's going to be a bad day for Shawn Watson even though he can make miracles happen at will while Samour's in perfect position to take on a team that showcase bad tackling display. So this is a team. So if this is the time where you want to be like, okay JK Dobbins, he didn't have that many targets but hey, he got two touchdowns in is the time to test out the JK Dobbins is going to be. The album? Kamara. To Marketing Rooms Mark Ingram. So we'll see what happens here Lamar he this seem doesn't tackle well, Lamar could have himself a anywhere closer to forty to fifty yards rushing easily against this team if he wants it, and of course, Mark Andrews is a guy who I would think would eat very well against the Houston team that allowed drivers Kelsey to get like five catches in the first half with ease marched up and down the field with ease Look to see how David Johnson looks in his second bout. David Johnson had a nice surprise of a Comeback Week one performance that a lot of people were speculating was possible and he delivered for the most part. So that was encouraging for many people to go ahead and see so I wouldn't. Put it past him to do it once again. That's really really against the I think that Brandin cooks is still a bit. So that would not be. Great for folks owners. And I would be looking at anybody who has. Willie snead Willie snead was all over the place last week and it was almost to a shocking amount of how much willie snead was dependent on and I said Willie snead. That was not who I meant to say I meant to say will fuller will fuller will around the field for the Texans last week and I would like to see him continue that stretch because that would be. Pretty awesome to be completely honest. I. Would like to see a will fuller healthy and showcasing that he is here to stay in this league and thus it would not make me feel nearly as bad for short.
"willie" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist
"Jabs at my life. Like. You have to laugh. Or you cry a lot Willie. Notice some sensitive moments in the whole record is. Basically. Every emotion you experience every part you know from the beginning of a relationship to the end of what it is now or where it is now and end its whole arc is there and it's been very therapeutic for me. I've been talking to friends that have been through divorce on or you know or grief at any sense losing someone it's like you've lost someone. And it's you know going through that I don't know how people go through that. Without having some kind of outlet because it is the worst thing ever you know for everyone involved and watching your kids as well. So it's the whole next record is definitely Just, the Ark of how beautiful it can be in the beginning parts in the you know those, you know all those little reminders that and then enduring relationship, and then you know towards the end of it, it's it's all kind of air and I don't know I feel like at this point I've learned in my career like I'm the vessel messages, it's not only therapeutic for me i. kind of feel like I can't wait till I connect with fans. That have gone through the same thing they're like, oh my gosh, I needed this record that I love when I put out music and I know that like when I released I'm like, okay this might not be a huge success successful thing but it's gonna reach someone out there that's been going through the same moment is that I have and that kind of connection is priceless because there's nothing worse than feeling alone and on an island in in such despair sometime. So you know and you just feel lost so I've I'm looking forward to releasing it and and you know just connecting with. People on that level. So but yeah, the record, the records GONNA come out next year I'm definitely been working on actually a couple. Christmas things dropping to that we're very random a duet with Brett eldredge I. Love. That I wrote in. cover songs like an AB side thing that's coming up for Christmas 'cause I think right now fans are always they've been asking can you just drop anything like everyone everyone's everyone's like feeling like you at the world has gone to crap just something and so I've worked on a couple of things release for Christmas until I could get the album out So just getting them something a little bit here and there but that's a cool thing about being an art artistic world is you get to maybe bring a little bit of. Sunshine or distraction or hope you now in a time where you need it most while you're talking about this new album and getting out everything going on in your personal life and it being therapeutic I started thinking about those one hundred bubbles and your talk show so is that the kind of thing you'll talk about is that a Talk Show. Very Good Metaphor relating nine all that. Yes. No, it's definitely every single bubble. And it's done not in like it's not a record that's like You know the whole thing isn't just like like angrier. Record the whole record. I'm a eight year of thirty year old woman..
Yahoo's Ugly Death
"The name is synonymous with a time when all of our lives were simpler when facebook was an actual books full of students faces computers made weird sounds when the connected to the Internet and downloading a one minute long video can take all night. Eddie tight yet who was one of the four or five most popular websites in the world with billions of views, every month and evaluation well, over one hundred, billion dollars. But as the two thousands turned into twenty tens, the web changed massively and your who was faced with the difficult task of changing with it. Their web portal service model was going out of fashion. We all moved to g mail and Google Search, McCain the front page of the Internet. Despite the fact that ask Jeeves was obviously way better. Many of Yahoo's services remained relatively popular, but they were no longer trendsetting no longer growing and the company's market capitalization dropped to a fraction of what it once was any remnant of the mindshare or what we might refer to as v Cultural. Capital they once held fell off. So to those of us on the outside yeah, who's fall seemed utterly quiet gradual and most of all inevitable but was it really Forget what you think. You know at least for a moment and consider this from the peak of the DOT COM bubble. Some say the beginning of the end for Yahoo to two thousand, eight, their revenue increased tenfold that success was no fluke either as print publishers struggled with the incoming revolution of online advertising, Yahu was very much on top of it. They were positioned Willie enough that when Microsoft attempted to buy the company for forty, five, billion dollars in. Two Thousand and eight CO founder and CEO Jerry Yang swiftly rejected the offer it was over the following few years that things would start to ten at the company transitioned through five different CEOS in just four years, and in the meantime Google took over the Internet. This would seem like the end of the story except in two thousand and twelve yen made arguably the most significant tire in its history and new CEO who could finally get things going again. Marissa Mayer. was distant for such a role from the beginning. Some college students have hard time in the job market, but after completing her degree at Stanford, Marissa was offered fourteen different jobs including teaching Gig at Carnegie Mellon One of America's leading engineering schools and consulting role at Mackenzie. Arguably, the world's premier consulting for the Young Maria turned down both those offers to become the twentieth employees at a fledgling startup called Google. At Google, she was star in fact, there's hundred percent chance you've run into her work. She oversaw the design of Google's homepage. You know the one you use probably ten times a day she was also one of the three people behind Google Edwards. It's difficult to overstate the importance of Edwards to the Internet as a whole and to the company itself to give you some sense of it. Though, at one point Edwards provided ninety six percent of Google's entire revenue. In fact, you could argue that Edwards and by proxy Melissa Samaya was at least partly responsible for the fall of. yahoos revenue multiplied tenfold between two thousand and two thousand and eight in no small part because of their online advertising. But he declined even faster when Google they're smaller competitor designed a better wage, you connect advertisers with users based on search results. Edwards. So, by the principle that if you can't beat him, you should join him Yahoo in two thousand and twelve hired Marissa Mayer. It was bald and popular choice. The company's stock rose two percent. The day of the announcement Meyer instantly became an icon for women in an industry dominated by men. Then, she got to work changing the company culture. She opened an online portal for employee complaints a system whereby any office problem given sufficient votes by employees would be automatically investigated by management. She oversaw a personnel shift which brought remote employees back into the company's offices Fortune magazine put her in their forty under forty list and ranked her as the sixteenth most powerful businesswoman on the planet. In short things were finally looking up for Ya. At least from the outside on the inside, however, the really really inside a very different story was about to be reading.
WOMEN SUFFER TOO
"What was I saying? From far away as in a delirium. I heard my own voice calling someone Dorothy. Talking of dress shops sub jobs. The words came clearer. The sound of my own voice frightened me as it came closer and suddenly there I was talking of not what to someone I'd never seen before this very moment. Abruptly, stop speaking. Where was I? I'd wake up in strange rooms before fully dressed on a bed or couch I'd wake up in my own room in or on my own bed not knowing what are our day was afraid to ask. But this was different. This time I seem to be already awake sitting upright in a big easy chair in the middle of an animated conversation with a perfectly strange young woman who didn't appear to think it strange. She was chatting on pleasantly uncomfortably. Terrified I looked around I was in a large dark, rather poorly furnished room the living room of a basement flat. Cold chills started chasing up and down my spine. My teeth were chattering my hands were shaking. So I took them under me to keep them from flying away. My fright was real enough but it didn't account for these violent reactions. I knew what they were. Right a drink would fix them. It must have been a long time since I had my last drink. But I didn't dare ask the stranger for one I must get out of here. In any case in any case I must get out of here before I let slip my abysmal ignorance of how I came to be here and she realized that I was stark staring mad I was mad I must be. The shakes grew worse and I looked at my watch six o'clock. It had been one o'clock when I last remembered looking. I'd been sitting comfortably in a restaurant with Rita drinking my sixth Martinian hoping the waiter would forget about the lunch order at least long enough for me to have a couple more, I'd only had two with her but I, managed four in the fifteen minutes I'd waited for her, and of course, I'd had the usual unaccounted swigs from the bottle as I painfully got up and did my slow spasmodic dressing. In fact, I have been in very good shape at one o'clock feeling no pain what could have happened. That had been in the center of New York on noisy forty second street. This was obviously a quiet residential section. Why had dorothy brought me here who was she? How I had? I met her I had no answers and I dared not ask she gave no sign of recognizing anything wrong. But what had I been doing for those lost five hours my brain world I might have done terrible things and I wouldn't even know it. Somehow I got out of there and walked five blocks pass brownstone houses. There wasn't a bar in sight, but I found the subway station, the name on it was unfamiliar and I had to ask the way grand central. It took three quarters of an hour and two changes to get their backed my starting point. I had been in the remote reaches of Brooklyn. That night I got very drunk which was usual but I remembered everything which was very unusual. I remembered going through what my sister assured. Me was my nightly procedure of trying to find. Willie, Seabrook's name in the telephone book. I remembered my allow resolution to find him and ask him to help me get into that asylum he had written about. I remembered asserting that I was going to do something about this that I couldn't go on. Remembered looking longingly at the window as an easier solution and shuddering at the memory of that other window three years before and the six agonizing months in a London. Hospital. Ward. I remember filling the peroxide bottle in my medicine chest with Jin. In case my sister found the bottle I hid under the mattress.

Los Angeles Police arrest 2 suspects in hate crime targeting 3 transgender women
"Have been arrested in connection with that attack on three transgender women on Hollywood Boulevard early Monday morning. Willie Walker and on House Man was arrested in the Hollywood area yesterday. Charged with extortion. The primary suspect, Carlton Calloway, was arrested today in Bakersfield for robbery with a hate crime enhancement. And authorities still looking for Davey and Williams for assault with a deadly weapon. The women who were attacked, began posting the names and photos of the suspects Monday night videos of the attack posted to Social media shall bystanders laughing and taunting the women as their robbed? The footage also captures a police car driving by without stopping, LAPD Deputy Chief Justin Eisenberg said that matter is being looked into. We've opened a personnel investigation to look into the details of that. But I can confirm for you. That police SUV was responding to an unrelated emergency that required response with lights and sirens, and we believe they were headed to that emergency, and that's that why they went past. The scene of this incident has not said if the man who live stream the attack on his social media would face any charges. Santa Barbara County has seen the
Lamar Jackson seems to welcome Ravens potentially signing Dez Bryant
"Dez Bryant Free Agent Wide Receiver reportedly in the Baltimore area for a workout with the Ravens Lamar Jackson was asked of a possible playing with three time Pro Bowler we've got a lot of great receivers in the team right now it's up the phenomenon but seeing desperate on instagram stuff like that running his routes competing against quarterback he's looking pretty good on social media if the. Front Office Lights, and we'll have to see when he gets you Brian has made it clear intrigued by the possibility of playing with Lamar Jackson quite the fall from grace from Desmond. What star he was he's thirty one years of age. Where do you think I'm GonNa come back with the Ravens for Dez Bryant I you know I think the issue with Dez has always been. When he goes outside the system, I mean, remember this is a guy that you know the cowboys wanted to take a pay cut to let's go back. Remember I think he was making sixteen million. I could have the numbers com wrong but it's in that area and he was clearly not playing to that level. He didn't have any bursts at the top of the route. He didn't separate his hands where we're really inconsistent, which is an indication of players, loosener legs he. Didn't he's not a guy who's to line up at multiple positions and still function really well because he needs to have a kind of like he needs to be a one place he needs to have his routes. He's not as a thinker of the of the game as he plays. You know he's a slower processing player. So for me learning a new offense with this guy, you know he's worth putting on the team from an executive standpoint if I signed Dez Bryant. And he's not my starting extra my starting see what am I getting out of them so okay, let's go through it. So if I sign them to say a minimum deal, two, million dollars. So I'm on the hook for a million bucks. Okay. If he makes the team on the Saturday of the before the opening game I guarantee salary for a year I got no flexibility there. Right. He can't help me at all in the kicking game. So unless he starting playing in the three receivers set, you know then he's not going to be active. So now I'm paying millions of dollars for a guy that I'm not gonNa have active now if he can. And he's GonNa make a big difference to my team. You know we drafted two receivers one in the third one in the six you know. So those two guys gotta take a back seat. They're cheaper labor force like none of this adds up like if you told me, you want sign Antonio Brown and you WanNa take on the game suspension young. Okay. Because I promise you Antonio Brown walks onto the field. There is nobody on Baltimore steam as good as they think they are at receiver and they have good receivers. There's nobody on that football team as good as Antonio Brown but he's the best player he's the best receiver on the team, but if Dez Bryant walks in. You know is he better than Hollywood? Brown no is see better. The Miles Birkett are Chris more or Willie snead. You know they drafted the dump Rene Texas they drafted the poor kid in the sixth round. So they got two young kids that they drafted like, where does he fit and then I I'm exposed at a million like these are all things like this is called second. Order thinking like it's one thing the media makes this big deal with says, bright. Well, you know does Bryant. Five years ago was a good player does Brian today may not be a good player just because he's a named certainly has from the past that's a different story as to how could translate this season
First Aid Kit Share Cover of Willie Nelson’s ‘On the Road Again’
"From NPR music, it's all songs considered. I'm Bob. Boylan. The last time I went to see a show was march twelfth. The band was the donning Irish group called Lincoln. I think a lot about how we're all missing shows about music venues and their ability to survive in this crisis search online. There are ways for you to help. And I'm reminded of all this because I just got a cover of Willie Nelson's on the road. Again, it's from the Swedish do first aid kit and began to think listening to the words that despite the grueling nature of touring the musicians deeply missed the club's the crowds, the fan, the interaction I'll let Clara from first aid kit, take it from here. We recorded our cover of Willie Nelson's classic song on the road again a few years ago but never released it when the reality of covid and no touring this year said. In, we decided it was a good time to share the song. We miss the joy of live music and hope that soon, we will be able to tour again, the proceeds from the streaming of the song will go to crew nation who are supporting the live music community. During this unprecedented time, the video is cold from our tour footage throughout the years Joanna Amazingly edited the entire thing and it makes us really nostalgic.

"Know home. In Nineteen Forty Blues, men, book White, recorded Parchment Farm, blues based on his time served inside the infamous prison. But Dow. Is Mine. He sings about the hard labor from dawn until the setting of the sun that's when the work is done. When The prison is still in operation today and still under scrutiny. The conditions that White Sang about and released on a ten inch records still echo from inside Mississippi state penitentiary on pirate podcast did show is the opportunity to the platforms allow these guys on inside voice to complain and let people know what they're really going through. Failures in oversight both within the state's prisons and at the government level have led some correctional officers to come forward even though the cash rate is not our job to treat them like dogs I mean we not the Kennel over there they the freeze and ended be treated like humans. In August two, thousand eighteen well before any thought of a pandemic sweeping the country Mississippi's prison system saw spike in inmate deaths. Correctional officials attributed many of these deaths to what they dismissed as natural causes. This is the ground truth podcast I'm Charlie Senate Michelle Lu covers criminal justice for Mississippi today for this episode, she takes us inside her investigation into the unexplained deaths and why the victims families still have questions. With report for America, Corps member Michelle Lu we're on the ground inside the Mississippi prison system. So as long as people have been in prison, people have died in prison missing prison leaders are looking into the fourth inmate twelve death. This month in a state thirteen prisoners have died behind bars and the month of August alone when local news outlets started reporting on a seaming spike in death across Mississippi's prison system in August of two, thousand eighteen, my editor asked me to take a look let story and figure out how conceptualize it in terms of what did these numbers mean and how did they compared to how deadly Mississippi's prisoners have been in the recent past. Over the course of that month sixteen people fifteen men and one woman died across Mississippi's entire prison system, and that was a significantly higher number than any prior month going back to two thousand twelve. So the State Corrections Department maintained that this number was not out of line with how deadly the prisons usually are. I think it was misinterpreted as to the calls for those sixteen. There's that were reported for the month of August the Commissioner Police Hall suggested that the people who had died inside died in similar ways that people die outside oppressive media those were from natural causes. I'll let the states lack of transparency raised questions about how inmates were dying in the states care. Before. Moving to Mississippi I had done a little bit of cops and courts reporting during journalism internships as a college student and I my student newspaper but I had never done any sort of substantive enterprise work on the topic before. I was really eager to even one of the challenges was that there was an has always been a tension between the urgency of the stories I want to tell Um when. People Send Me. Tips when people tell me about incidents that have just happened and the sort of frustrating Byzantine process. By which I have to. Make a good faith effort to corroborate the story. Circuit Clerk's office healthy. Hi My name's Michelle Lu reporter with Mississippi today in Jackson. This typically involves filing a lot of public records request for public records request and you can send a copy of the check that you're GonNa send and fax number six, one, seven, three times but I, don't get a lot confirmed or denied from the state. And as I've learned neither do the families of those who died in prison. I think families of people who die in any state institution deserve a thorough understanding of what happened to the person they loved and cared about and in talking to family members I found that they were getting little to no information from the state about what happened to their loved ones. We will thirty, six year old willy, hauling head died Saturday at least bill prison officials have not released a causes of death pending completion of autopsies. Willie hauling head was serving time for a drug conviction. and. When I drove out to Alabama to meet with Willy's family I was. Really, struck by the way in which in the absence of any real clarity were knowledge in how willy had died. They took what was available to them, which is the condition of Willie's body when they picked him up from Jackson at the mortuary and the facts they knew about Willy's life and had to find their own narrative. The official death certificate that arrive in the mail about a year later said that. release. Cause of death was undetermined. But he was you know in his thirties his family said, he didn't have health problems. and. They is their reports that he was just found on the floor one night. Mississippi state. Penitentiary colloquially known as Parchman is one of the largest prisons in the state of Mississippi. It's run by the state and it's located in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. It has a really bleak in distressing history. Frankly, it was founded in one thousand, nine, hundred 's as the cotton plantation and it was modeled after a slave plantation. In the nineteen thirties, Elvis Presley's father. Vernon spent nine months there for forgery. And to this day, the Parchman farm is reported to be a working operation relying on the Labor prisoners. Parchman has also been at the center of several calls for investigations into the conditions inside these investigations have been partly in response, the videos and photos leaked by prisoners. This is a picture of the food trays. These trays are stacked outside exposed to numerous germs, insights, and feces from birds. A lot of incarcerated people in Mississippi have had contraband cell phones inside and they've often used social media. As, well, as family members to circulate images of their living conditions

Biden VP Search Narrows to Kamala Harris: Does She Want the Job?
"Democratic presidential nominee of Vice President Joe Biden could reportedly announced his pick for a running mate as soon as this week. California Senator Kamala Harris. API appears to be one of the leading candidates, but some are questioning if she AH wants to take the job or not for more key CBS News anchor Dan Mitchinson spoke with Carla Marinucci. Senior writer for Politico California playbook. Carla. What do you think? First of all, Do you think this could be Harris there? Even in the last days, Vegas betting circled at this point. Dan is being number one on Joe Biden's list. Who knows how that's gonna play out? But the fact is that Kamala Harris has been mentioned before. For other Possibilities in the administration, including attorney general, including possibly a nominee for the Supreme Court. Obama and during the Obama administration, she was reportedly asked if she wanted to be attorney general. She turned that down on the issue of the Supreme Court. She said She wanted to run for Senate at the time. But times have changed, And perhaps she might have changed her mind. She's getting advice from some Democrats that she might consider turning down the VP job because the attorney general job at this point could be more consequential. Willie Brown, who former San Francisco mayor said in his column on Sunday that he thought, uh, right right now, there's nobody left important than the vice president. I mean, as he said, Ask Mike Pence so that nobody thinks the vice president is a really influential job. But the attorney general, ah could have a long to do list ahead and that could include prosecuting Trump in the trump family law enforcement reform, Other issues related tio inspector generals and other things that the Trump administration has done and Democrats I think may be cheering that on, so we'll see how it plays out. But certainly Kamala Harris has a lot of different possibilities. But right now it looks like she may be at the top of the list or very close to it when it comes to Joe Biden, vice presidential nominee, But let me ask you this. I mean, Biden is gonna have a lot of California locked in the rest of the country, not necessarily a big fan of our state. Do you think a VP from here would hurt or help him then? That's been a debate Janet, But the fact is Kamala Harris has huge name recognition in the rest of the country. The You don't want the advice presidential nominee to do any harm. But in commonly Harrison's case, she could help in helping deliver some of those states where you need to rev up the Democratic base of progressive base. She had those followers right. She had a presidential campaign that brought her to all of those swing states. And so many voters know her out there more than some of the other women on the list. That doesn't mean, however, that people like Karen Bass, perhaps the House member from Los Angeles, Uh, Susan Rice, former ambassador and Tammy Duckworth's, uh, the senator from Illinois who is highly thought of this well couldn't be part of the mix as well. But how tough would this be for not only Biden but for Harris if she decides to run in four years if Biden's only in there for one or even in eight to move into the White House when we have a pandemic going on, and an economic recession? Yeah, you've actually hit on it and that some of the reasons why we've heard some doubts about Kamala Harris being mentioned the fact that she's ambitious. She clearly wants to run for president in some point And the go by in vice presidential nominee is in effect giving a leg up to whoever wants to do that It is effective primary in a way for the for the next presidential contest. Many Democrats would believe that that May hurt Joe Biden in some respects because they may want not wantto help. Comma. Harris is much when it comes to pushing legislation in Washington because they won't want to advance her chances. There's going to be a lot of Democrats who want to run for president, Uh, in 2024. So at this point, Yeah, Connell, Harris and her future plans and her future ambitions have all been part of the mix. It's why some Democrats say she may be the best choice for Joe Biden. Alright, Gotta run real quick. Will she be offered the the VP, And if she is, will she take it? He'll take it if she's offered, Will she be offered? That's the $1,000,000 question right now. That's Carla Marinucci, senior writer for political Oh California playbook.

Progress slow as urgency grows on virus relief legislation
"Saw potential step forward in the congressional negotiations for another corona virus relief package after weeks of Resistance Senate. Majority leader Mitch McConnell said he will support an extension of the now lapsed six hundred dollar federal unemployment insurance relief every week that is if president trump backs it. The American people in the end need help. And wherever this thing settled. Between the President United States and his team, it have to sign it into law. And the Democrat. Not Significant minority in the Senate and majority in the House. Is something I'm prepared to support even if I have some problems. With. Certain parts of it. So, Jake Sherman, you cover Mitch McConnell you know him very well that's as close as you'll get to seeing. Mitch. McConnell concede there where he effectively said, okay, I know this bill's been sitting on my desk for three months. I've got some problems with the Democrat bill from the house, but I may be willing to budge on that six hundred dollar weekly payment. The original counteroffer from Republicans as you know had been two hundred dollars a week. So if he concedes on that point, get six, hundred dollars a week of unemployment benefits to people who need it. So desperately right now does that mean we're going to get deal here. Will I think Willie? We're going to get a deal at some point in the next week. It looks not promising, but it looks possible. Here's the catch Mitch McConnell's not a part of these negotiations right now also for the first time in a long time, we could kind of say that Mitch McConnell's view here is a little bit tangential to the overall negotiations. Now Mark Meadows and Steven Mnuchin who have been in the negotiations have offered four hundred dollars a week until December fifteenth, which also by the way is a very big concession for the GOP people. We actually in playbook this morning give a blow by blow full with good chock full of quotes from inside of the negotiating room. During a two and a half hour meeting yesterday in the capital illustrating that there are a lot of issues that remain open to get corona virus for leads to American people just to give a sense about how far we kind of our from virus package, they are bringing in the postmaster general today to talk to the negotiating team about the needs of the US Postal Service because there is such a divide on how much the post office might need to complete its operations. So again, these negotiations are very fraught they're complicated and they're dragging on almost two weeks in I. Think we'll have another week at least before this bill is passing both sides want to get a deal before Friday. Jonathan Does Jake says Mitch McConnell's not involved particularly here. Specifically, neither is the President United States. He's taken a hands off approach to the entire negotiation sending US chief of staff. Mark Meadows and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin into do the negotiating here. How badly does the White House needed deal? Does the president recognized that more than thirty million people just lost that six hundred dollar week check that's allowing them to survive for the last several months urgency from the White House on this. There is really the president in the last twenty, four hours or so has insisted he is playing a role in these negotiations, but we know that is largely not the case that he has need. Deferred it to his chief of staff and Treasury Secretary and Jake don't certainly don't extra job outlining how these negotiations have gone. But yes, there was a keen awareness that this is a president who's facing voters in under three months and that Americans are hurting right now and then beyond just wanting to have a helping hand to those who have suffered so much during this pandemic of course, there's an towards his reelection chances here, and if unemployment numbers can you to go with the economic slowdown, economic recovery slows down that only hurts his chances. They are trying to push here. The they understand that they're in a bad spot have not gone well, the each day that it drags on is a bad day for this president who again is trying. So desperately to pointed idea of a recovery economic recovery as opposed to how he has handled her barracks better said handled the coronavirus pandemic to this point.

Conscience of the Country: A Tribute to John Lewis
"Congressman John Robert Louis was born in Troy Alabama on February twenty first nineteen, forty, two sharecroppers, Willie Mae, and Eddie Lewis. He is known for telling the story of preaching chickens at the boy from troy as he was nicknamed went on to become revered world leader and fearless advocate for voting rights organizing sit ins in. Nashville in nineteen sixty and becoming one of the original freedom writers Mr Lewis joined the Movement for civil rights and never looked back. As the chairman of snake he served as the youngest speaker at the march on Washington in nineteen, sixty three. In nineteen, sixty, five alongside reverend hosea, Williams Congressman Lewis led a march for voting rights across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma Alabama where he endured violent attacks by state troopers and vigilantes. Mr. Lewis fell to the ground with a fractured skull and five months later, president Lyndon B, Johnson signed the voting rights act of nineteen, sixty five until now. On the other side of that bridge Mr Lewis marched on into a life in career of activism and public service. He lost his first attempt at running for Congress in nineteen seventy seven was appointed the same year by President Jimmy Carter to the Director of action a Federal Agency for volunteerism. He then won a seat on the Atlantic City Council in nineteen eighty one and five years later ran for Congress in one. So much of the conversation about congressman, John. Lewis has been about his activism, but he stood on so many legislative accomplishments including sponsoring or co sponsoring more than eleven hundred bills. One of the most notable bills gave us the National Museum of African American History and culture in two thousand three. He served as a subcommittee chair for oversight for the prestigious ways and means. Committee, and after the retirement of Congressman John Conyers. became the dean of the Congressional. Black Caucus in twenty nineteen, he presided over the House floor as Congress passed hr four. Since his passing the bill was renamed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act which was adopted by unanimous consent. Before being admitted to the hospital, MR? Lewis stood in the heart of Black Lives Matter Plaza. He took his last breath on July seventeenth twenty twenty. But his legacy lives on in all of us. We begin this John Lewis. Tribu. where he also began with civil rights joining me for this very important conversation are Vanita Gupta President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on civil and Human Rights Derek Johnson, president and CEO of the of Lacey Pe-. Reverend, Michael Pfleger the senior pastor of the faith community of Saint. SAVINA. Reverend Dr William J Barbour, the second president of repairs of the breach and Co Chair of the poor people's campaign. An latasha Brown, Co founder and chief doer of black voters matter. A thank you all so much for making time to talk with me today about on. John Lewis. So I want to start with I'm. VANITA. Because of your work at the Department of Justice of course. I believe the year before you got to DOJ. The the case, the decision that gutted the voting rights act shelby versus holder, and so I wanna hear from you on some of the things that you experienced working with Mr Lewis on the other side of that because we know that right after that, all of the advocacy picked up to reinstate section five to get the voting rights on provision where they needed to be in Congress. And so just talk a little bit about some of your work with Mr Lewis on those issues. Shore. Is Truly an honor to be here with my. Warrior colleagues and friends and loved ones in the movement. Especially on today Angela. I think probably all of us were in tears watching Mr Lewis Funeral you know twenty thirteen is you mentioned that United States Supreme Court gutted the heart of the voting rights act in a devastating decision the shelby county versus holder decision. That really took away the longstanding tool of one of the most effective pieces of federal legislation in our nation's history in the voting rights act. That quired states with long histories of racial discrimination in voting to pre clear with the United States Justice Department changes made at the local level for election practices that had racially discriminatory impact. And the removal of that tool within hours of that decision coming down for the United. States. Court states like, North Carolina Texas enacted, Monster? Voter. Laws doing everything from. Putting forth restrictive voting laws cutting back early voting same day registration. And it took years to litigate and to hamlet the Justice Department did working with advocates and activists in all states. Where so years for federal courts in a place like North Carolina finally say that the State legislators North Carolina had enacted there. Monster Voter Suppression Law would such surgical precision to disenfranchise African Americans and meanwhile countless elections had taken place but Mr Lewis of legacy was that in the face of this overwhelmingly bad decision for voting rights he immediately. Went to action, which is always his way was never in a would not allow despair to hold him back inside we need to do everything we can restore it in went to work with legislative partners in the Congressional Black Caucus to put forth a bill immediately to restore it on every prior reauthorization of the voting. Rights. Act angelides always been done under. The Watch of Republican president and at least one house of Congress being Republican the unfortunate thing is after this decision, the really has not been bipartisan support and but Mr Lewis Year after year would stand at the podium introduced the law in say or in it for the long haul I've been there before I almost lost my life fighting for this law. In one, thousand, nine, sixty five, and we will persevere to us and we've got to keep our eye on the prize and we're not gonNA. Let go until the day that the bill becomes law. So in this moment. On where we're seeing a lot of performance morning by Senate Republicans who obstructed day after day everything that he has stood for and fought for with his life. It is time not only for us to restore the voting rights act passed the voting rights advancement act but to do everything else that we can to ensure open voting and go beyond it as President Obama said today won't be enough to rest and return to the status quo. It is time for this country to unregarded into make our democracy work for all of us in Gulf Far Beyon- restoration of the voting rights act in this moment.

"A nation mourning the death of civil rights icon Georgia Congressman John Lewis. The Suzanne saw school was in Roxbury and Dorchester, where she spoke with two community leaders who knew him. It was devastating man. It was like a love in my stomach. It wasn't easy for Reverend Willie Brodrick and Bishop William Dickerson to find out about Lewis's death. But both men knew Lewis and are rejoicing in the life. He led his tenacity, his consistency and his commitment to not just a moment, but beyond the movement to a lifetime of serving people, a radical ethic of love his spirit to be able to forgive and his willingness to continue to see that America gets better each and every day, Patrick says. Lewis knew what was right was bigger than himself. And his legacy will live on in the youth who are leading this phase of the civil rights movement. There is no age to speak up for justice, and you can change the world right

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. That really close the deal. I think I told you he sent me an email afterward. Now no email came through. Okay thank you. I know. Invite him because it was in that same language that whole thing which I just love And he had a great time and wanted to thank all of you guys to for doing such a great job taking care because I think it was a big deal for him to sit exposed himself that way yeah with all his career and his story so it was amazing guys Al Pacino Al Pacino Vici.

"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.
"willie" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist
"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

Sit down podcast maggie law maggie. Hey how's it going really good so she's. 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.

"Hey Guys Willie geist here with another episode of The Sunday. Sit Down podcast my thanks as always clicking and listening along my guest this week one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Jake Jilin Hall very excited for this one jason the middle of a good run just this month alone he's in Spiderman where he plays mysterious a film that just crossed the one billion dollar mark his first time in the Marvel Universe really first time doing one of those big superhero dress up costume kind China deals and at the same time this week he's in previews for his play seawall a life which he is brought to Broadway from the famed public theater off Broadway here in New York City this interviews taking place at the Hudson Theater where he we <hes> was getting ready. Just a couple of days before they started previews for seawall a life he co stars with British actor. Tom Sturridge and he'll explain it to you but what it is to acts and the first act is just Tom Sturridge onstage giving a monologue and jake is in the wings hanging out in his dressing room. Whatever he's doing then he comes out for the second? 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.
