How Jenny Lorenzo Became the Internets Favorite Cuban Abuela
"Jenny. I'm almost have to admit not accustomed to seeing you as jenny. nobody else. Is that what you look like. I want to take a listen to the first video that you ever did. Hold up today. Go to pick up one three gilead of better sex for three going on meeting me gomez day metal supplement. Okay iressa on. And off for the love of god. So here's what's interesting. It's the first video that willa was ever featured in for buzzfeed but she insisted prior channel of mine called aggressive comex and a boiler was first introduced as a superhero Because this was a channel that was predominantly white male audience. I talked about video games and comic books and movies. Sifi strictly me being nerd and then at some point i did a movie review of the film kick ass and me and my writing partner for the show was to the cuban well because he knew that i kind of already did that sort of thing and so it was the same terrible wig that you do see in that buzzfeed video i think i through like baby powder on it to make gray and she had like this painted red mask over her eyes with like a fly swatter as were weapon and then eventually it made no sense for the channel. But you can tell that. I yearned to make this sort of content. It is interesting that something that is as big as a bulla takes that many iterations to get there like. I think there's a lesson in there for any creative. That is not necessarily that. The opening gambit is where you land now never being a nerd is as much a part of your identity and culture as being cuban. It seems did you see characters on tv or in media. Who has a latino nerd you identified with not really wasn't until recently that i started seeing that representation especially in a show like no spooky because these are a bunch of latino gods that are into the macab and they're a bunch of nerds and outsiders because that's a big part of me to what most approximated your own experience i would say. A lot of that was in black television. You see urkel you see. Carlton banks a lot of these like nerdy people of color on tv. Maybe sometimes says from that seventies show me. He had like a bit of a nerdy flair to him. I feel like latinos on tina's specifically were usually depicted as like very sensual loud colorful. You know things sofia vergara in modern family that was the typical depiction of what was and. So that's why. I had a hard time in the audition room. I didn't fit any mold of what especially miami casting paint a picture for me of what auditioning in miami looked like. It was a nightmare for me. I would show up and for those who don't know me. I'm like five feet pasty skinny little shits and he but then i have this like deep voice. No one knows what to do with me. So then i shopped to these auditions and they were usually little late sorta lottery or like colgate but then i would be up against women my age but they looked like supermodels and then there was me so then i just never felt like. I was sexy in us to sell toothpaste. I remember my very very first universal casting audition. It was for the florida lottery. And i had to be like this sexy. You're even an award. These like plastic clear stripper heels. I don't know. I don't know what i was thinking but i was nineteen years old. The silver lining of this terrible experience is that emotive issue to become a creator. I was tired of this. I was so tired. And then i did a couple extra work. Gigs was extra on. Burn notice and dexter. And guess what. I was scantily clad and tacky his hell because that's what they thought of people in miami. All of these shows always depicted people from miami in the same way and it always took place in south beaten always involve drugs and sex and violence. Which is another reason why. I'm working so hard today. To eventually sollers show. That depicts miami in a more authentic way so yeah it pushed me to go to school and learn how to do everything else on my own.
How Aimee Garcia Took Charge of Her Hollywood Career
"Amy thanks for doing this. Thank you for helping me. I want to start with Scrappy heart Productions because while I am sure that we have some listeners in our midst who are aspiring actors says I'm going to guess that more are trying to figure out how to go from worker to owner from performer to Creator. So take me back to the moment where you decided that you wanted to have your own production company. It kind of happened organically with glow so they asked my writing partner and I who's also bodiqua. She's Puerto Rican and wrote A New York Times bestseller called crazy is my superpower. We were talking. We love superheroes and we love comics and we never saw ourselves represented and they asked us to write glow the comic based on the Netflix series wage. And that was the first time that we thought let's highlight the Mexican character in there that we felt could have been more mature dived into during the series. What if we pitched that relationship between Yolanda's character and the Muslim character and we pitched it to Netflix and they loved it off and they got their own covers on the comics. And that was the first time I thought oh my goodness. This is so cool that I was able to with my writing partner highlight a Mexican carrier. And have her be the center of the story even though she's a peripheral character on the show. So I have been following your writing partner and now your production company. Mendez for years because she and I both grew up in Union City, New Jersey and so years ago when she was in the WWE. My mom was like my mom's always on the lookout for Union City kids. So she was like a Union City kid in the WWE and it's like oh and she's Latina like this is amazing. We're so you guys were writing Partners before you were producing Partners, correct? We were writing Partners, we wrote Globe which we love doing and then we started writing Dungeons and Dragons and she's like, hey, I found this article on this badass female viking who had a hero's burial and we were like, let's highlight her and she had like this huge scar on her face. And then we did this Disney writers program and they said you should start a production company because you guys have so many ideas and you guys run off. Dammit with comedy and drama and T and you guys should create your original material and then we were like, yeah, we we should do that and then the kicker was really the, Khan's that is when our fans I would go around for Lucifer and she would go around for WWE and they'd ask us what's next like what are you doing? Next? We love your character and we thought well, let's check them an answer. Let's say we're creating our own characters and making these peripheral diverse characters the centers of their own stories. And then we just did it. I think this was all the love in my life, which is I am genuinely surprised that it took that long for you to realize that you wanted and needed a production company. I know, you know what it is. I've been really lucky as an actor. I recorded Modoc while I was shooting Lucifer and I filmed El Chicano while I was shooting Lucifer and I've always worked as an actor. I've had a bunch of failed pilots and I've had success with Dexter and shows that were supposed to be big and only lasts a year like rush hour and Trauma and I just throw myself all in and I think I didn't have the bandwidth to think outside of that kind of singular horse race track. I wish I would have done this sooner. I write 8 hours a day. I just dedicated myself for the past three years to writing every day. I have off and any time I finish a take I'll just run to my computer and right. So what was the first thing you did once you in a j decided that you wanted to start a production company content content is King whether it's you getting the rights to an article or writing it yourself off. Of or putting together a pitch for an existing IP like a j did with crazy as my superpower IP is everything and if you can have original Ip, that's the most important thing. So I really think putting pen-to-paper is the first step whether it's an article a book a script. I mean a g and I both wrote Our Own scripts and then with my show I was looking for a showrunner to help me write this pilot for a family Latino comedy that I want to write. I just ended writing it myself life. That's why we call the scrappy heart cuz we when we got the job for glow we didn't even know how to write a comic book. We literally YouTube how to write a comic book and like DIY like we're total DIY.

They they, you know they get paid Nothing if you give him a sandwich there happy, So they're like they get paid Absolutely nothing in the fact that that Ah, it's it's an art form just purely for the enjoyment of the art form, as opposed to any sort of like I'm going to be this famous ballerina and make a $1,000,000,000 like it doesn't work that way. So, you know, Want one in a 1,000,000 people? There's one Baryshnikov. That's it, You know, it's like it's like it's it's not. It's not one of those art forms that you're you're you go into for the commerce of it or the I'm going to be world famous. You really go into it for the love in the art of it, And there's something really great about that. And I I look back on those days quite quite fondly. Especially when I look in a mirror now and I see what I look like. I just didn't appreciate it. It's bull's eye. I'm Jesse Thorne. My guest is writer and showrunner. Amy Sherman Palladino, The creator of the hit shows Gilmore Girls and the Marvellous, Mrs Mazel. How old were you when you and your writing partner got the job on Roseanne? Was 2023 24. I was young. Oh, so young, And it was it was season three of Roseanne. Right? Was your was your first year? My first year season three. I was there. 3456 I My Roseanne. History is a little blurry at the edges, but that's kind of innocence. Hers so but on pump we'll be here all night. It's It's kind of in between the most intense madness of Roseanne, right, like the first and second season was when all of the people who you know had been installed. We're getting uninstalled. A and later on was when things maybe production wise got got a little batty. What was it like working on that show? Well, season three especially was great my first year. And was it four season throwing for those are the two great, really, really great years. Bob Myers was running the show, and he was a great show runner like he was an old school show runner. You know, he came up like my two dads and like old school sitcom. And you know, we never We didn't have a table. We sat in his office on couches, and we each held our own pad and wrote our own notes like a writer's assistant didn't sit in there and type incessantly like you know, it was a completely It was very, very old is very Mary Tyler Moore. I mean, Ah Ah, Sorry, Dick Van Dyke. You know, like when you just sort of like sat around and kind of rift and and it wasn't as it didn't have a corporate feeling at all. It really felt Like what? My vision of a writer's room. Still is and because she had gone through all the madness of breaking up with her husband, and she was together with Tom, and they sort of fired everybody and they sort of taken over the show. It was it was those two years especially were very sort of like grape Oasis is because she was happy. And she was very focused on her relationship. And she had also banned the studio and the network from this set. So my first experience in a show there were no studio and network notes. I didn't I didn't know they could give notes. I had literally no idea because it was just very much the writers and then the writers with Roseanna, the writers with the actors. It was the way To me. It should be. You know, like we would come in. We break our stories. We'd write our scripts. We do. Our table reads. We go back. We talk about it. We do our fixes and the next and it wasn't until I got off a Roseanne and I was on another show, and I was there four years, so I left a supervising producer. And I went on to another show. And and I was like, who are all these people sitting around this table. And why are we listening to them? Like someone had to say to me? This is this is the network in the studio, and I'm like, So what we have worked doing. Let me like We have to wait and get their notes. He was a foreign concept to me. That suddenly there was this layer between the writers and the actors and And it was so basically Roseanne prepared me completely for what I'm doing and yet come I didn't prepare me at all for the actual business of of of show because I didn't You know, I sort of grew up. In a utopian writer's room because it was it was Anna Joe. And then seasons the last two seasons that I was there, Bob left, and then the staff started to get ridiculously big and She started to get more unhappy with Tom. And then things sort of shifted, and I When I left, I was ready. I was ready to go. Will wrap up with Amy Sherman Palladino after a quick break. Don't go anywhere. Amy will tell me about the big TV executive meeting where she pitched Gilmore Girls, But did you know it wasn't her first idea? The execs hated her first idea more on that coming up. It's bull's eye for maximum fun dot or GE and NPR. In this summer like.

"Trying out short stories always your first story when you I mean not so much the first one that you can. Write maintenance sixteen and Seventeen I was reading science fiction I. there's a there's a story called repent Harlequin said the tiktok man by Harlan Ellison and it was in one of those you know world's greatest science fiction's nineteen, sixty, six, nineteen, Sixty, seven is a collection. And I would read those things back and forth I just loved them. I remember sitting in bed. Reading that story again but TIKTOK man story and I thought I could probably do something like this and And went downstairs and got on the Family Commodore Amiga. which had at that point had been just used for defender of the crown and there was you know a pre wordpress or not were pressed but a pre word program that we had on there and I sat down and wrote a story and it was a science fiction story it was absolutely horrible. It was something about trying to be. Satirical without even knowing satire was at that point is trying to be funny without really having a sense of irony or I had it but I didn't know how to portray it online on on the page. Yeah. and I. Remember. It took it took me a couple of hours and finished it. brought. To my girlfriend at the time I said, hey read this she looked at it. She read it kind of is like, what are you like you should keep trying? All right. At least you didn't say stop. Yeah Yeah exactly. Yeah. It was very nice her was there someone in your family because I mean getting into English and you're talking about some of the books that you read and then into writing? was there someone in your family that? Product you towards. Your joy for reading. Would you even define it as a joy for reading because absolute our devour books? Yep well, maybe not as fast as some people but yeah, I am constantly reading Yeah my mother she she got me into reading very very early I I. What I finally decoded everything figured it out. I, brought a stack of my. You know my doctor seuss books down to her while she was watching the. Cable Net. So I think and just started reading to her out loud and and from that point on there was always a there's always book around it was something that I could always retreat to I didn't know it at the time but just personality wise I'm fairly introverted doesn't mean that I don't like people just means I need to have some alone time and that's where I would get it. I could go home. I'd read a Stephen King Book Re. Short Stories I. Got Into. A. Clockwork. Orange. And all those dystopia novels and you could use that to kind of relax and recharge by between her and my brother. My brother was the one who also use like, Hey, you should read this your one flew over the CUCKOO's nest. Now here's a coke orange like I said, hey, did you get the new Stephen King? They would just feed me stuff and then you know there's All over the house and so I just had my pick I just walk around and you know. GonNa re I didn't know Stephen King wrote four books. You pick that one up and move on from there and then start developing your own tastes and and move on. I think you might mention of it. What was your first piece of writing that you handed into someone besides your girlfriend for a critique? That was junior year. and we're supposed to write a fictional story I ended up fictionalized event that. You know that we want to up at my mother's Relatives House up in Jersey and that crashed and burned really really. Well, it's. I was I was up against another kid in class meaning we we've been partners. and. He wrote this amazing piece of course and then and he wrote I of course to read his out loud and then I read mine and it was just frigates. Suddenly found in this as well But he you know go ahead go ahead. Well I. got the feedback that that at the time. I needed you know. Every writer when they go into writing for the first time especially that age you don't know what revision means you don't know really what constructive feedback means, and so that's that's what the teacher is trying to say look it's not going to be perfect. The first time this is a rough draft, and so you get the positive stuff in the negative stuff and you go back and Redo it and I I went back and wrote a different story instead because I was embarrassed and I didn't know how to you know handle that particular situation. But I I, I, put it through three or four drafts, and then my teacher was like, yeah, that's what I'm talking about it. That's that's how you do it, and so you learn from those particular situations. How is your your balance of confidence with your writing even though it needed Some revision is standing there in reading in front of your your classmates, the confidence. Could did you have a balanced with that because personally I remember my first year university might first communications class in my knees were shaking and I was scared forty people in the class I looked at my communication Susan. Shut up. Even. Though I had a paper here in front of me. How was your balance with that? Probably. Mighty pen. Yeah, exactly you know naked in front of the class. Yeah well, that's that's exactly I. I. Don't know if if my voice was shaking, my knees were knocking at that point I? Do Remember one of the things I was trying to make sound. Funny. Did Not come off as funny. and there is just silence and it was that the that feeling in the pit of your stomach in front of your, you know this is an advanced English class eleventh grade and. I was like Oh man I blew it. You know from that point on he's going to. And finishes. Waiting for you to be over. And there's been plenty of those moments too. Yeah exactly especially following the other guy who? It was he was I. think he ended up being the Valedictorian and just he just knew what he was doing at an early age You know. There wasn't any ever like any jealousy of my my half. I was just always like man he's so much better. But that takes humility right like just to say no. That guy's talented. Suppose just recognizing it. Yeah. Recognizing I mean acknowledged that wow, that guy's talented I have some ways to go. Yeah and Also. Just being a nice person but also I think. It wasn't a secret how good he was everybody knew that because he was he was killing across all of the subjects and it was just one of those things I have no idea where this guy came from it he's amazing. and I think he had transferred over freshman year so we didn't know. Nobody knew who why non horses exactly. Wow. You're awesome in everybody's Askar you. Just for you just to realize, okay, you gotta work on it a little bit more and then you'll succeed. Yeah that's why people like that exist. It's it's. A It's what gives you drive sometimes I. I gotta hit that level. So after university, what was your? What was your mission? I was a drummer and punk rock bands and we were touring up and down the east coast playing basements in bars and small clubs, and we recorded a whole bunch of albums and that was what we were trying to do. I did that for about three and a half four years? Yeah. Yeah Absolutely yeah. It in me see in. One of the band's had a few in there even though I did not play guitar if I got a base and I kind of plunked around and figure out what the notes were and showed it to the guys who knew better than me and we fashion. A song out of that, I could I could yell scream. Or sorry y'all sing. With some sort of melody in there, some sort of harmony. Another band was I started getting more confident. Now is a fifty percent songwriter with that group. and then you know, 'cause you hop around from band abandoning. You know they last a year or two so that there was another band you know those those I who were punk rock ish or just rock bands then got into like an old country band where I was a one third singing partner in writing partner. After that, I got kind of got tired of of writing and I just WANNA play drums. I played A. Backup not. WanNa sing right now I, just want to play drums. I'm already doing five things at once and adding in their six so. Let. Me just play drums but yeah, it was it was a Lotta Fun. How much will even bringing up the confidence level? How much was that good for you to be on stage? I mean. Did that add

'Toy Story 4' is a Masterpiece. Is It in Pixar's Top 5?
"You. I'm Shawn fantasy editor in chief of the ringer. And this is the big Pixar podcast. They conversation show about Toy Story, four and all sorts of childish things. I'm joined today by apparent at the ringer rob heart villa. Hello rub. Hello. How's it going? It's going very well. And I appreciate you being here. You know, some of my frequent co host on the show among them, amended Dobbins, and Chris Ryan are, just straight up assholes about animated movies, and I noticed that I need to have people on to talk about important animated films. And I think even before you were a parent, you would have been a thoughtful and sophisticated guest for this episode, but you are a father and so you are happenings moves to Pixar in, in deep way in recent years. Is that fair to say that's very fair to say very complicated relationship with these movies at this point? But yes, yes, so we'll talk about that a bit on this show. I think we'll start the show though by talking about the new Pixar movie, which is, of course, Toy Story four, I think, when Pixar I started about twenty or so years ago, I never would have guessed that. That there would have been a fourth installment of any of these movies, in fact when they started. They seemed like a new version of a kind of storytelling that didn't necessitate sequels if you look on the ring dot com right now you can read a really interesting column by miles Surrey about the state of Pixar and their decision to make a series of sequels over the last ten years, and what that means for their, their brand, and what it means for their business and what it means for their creativity. And in some ways, I think it's been really threatened over the last few years, you know, we were just talking before we started recording about the infamous cars, three, which I would say is not one of the more legendary. In the Pixar verse. But Toy Story four, I thought was quite wonderful. And I thought it hearkens back to what makes a lot of these films. Great and also push them forward a little bit, rob. How did you receive toys story for what did you make in the movie, I saw last night with my sons who are eight and five and sort of Iraq is sort of preview screening. And I my kids laughed more laughed, louder just more obnoxiously than at any movie. I think that I've ever taken them to know. So I by by that measure, I mean it was a huge success. And I thought it was wonderful, and I thought it push things forward, but also sort of hold back on that sort of classic Pixar idea that like the kids are delighted, and the parents are total emotional wrecks. You know what I'm saying? Like I it's sort of an impressive mass magic trick that these movies can do. And I think especially of inside out, you know, which was, my, I think I've written about this on the side a couple times now. But like my son walk. Out of inside out. He was five at the time and he thought anger was funny, and I was just crying mess, you know, because I just watched I just watch goofball island, which is like the visual manifestation of like a joyful kid becoming a sullen teenager, like depicted, on, like a giant theater screen, and it was just the most crushing experience like the way those movies these movies are designed to work on those two levels, and they sort of drive, the parents to the toy store, but also to therapy, like, I, I feel like this one was sort of uncomplicated, Katie just funny and delightful and I had it seriousness and had like themes that parents, especially it would pick up on. But like it wasn't working that dichotomy where it was sort of, like designed to upset me personally, you know what I'm saying? Like I feel like they can play with that a little bit. But they don't have to hammer at it all the time in every movie that they put out, you know, I could just enjoy my kids, enjoying this one, a lot more than I feel like the last. Several Pixar movies. Yeah. I agree with that. I do think though, there is this entire school of almost academic sought around Pixar movies. And if you want to, if you want to experience Toy Story four as an exegesis on creationism and identity and a cartesian analysis of society, you probably could do that. I absolutely. Yeah. And I think that is that, that whole divide is fascinating to me the way that you've underlying basically the pure kid enjoyment of something, and the way that adults are entertained, and even moved by some of their films. I feel like can you give me a little bit of a sense of as a parent? What it's like to see a lot of movies like this, not just Pixar movies, but animated movies or what's on TV or what streaming for your kids and what the balance is between this is secretly for parents. And this is actually just dumb entertainment for kids, so that they don't like break things in the kitchen. Yeah. I mean, I feel like I've seen every type of movie along that spectrum, you know, and I haven't hated any. Movie that I think I've taken my kids to even like down to, like rock dog or whatever, you know, like I it's the LEGO movies are trying to be adult and trying to be knowing and it feels like they are specifically pitched for the adults in a way that, like a lot of the jokes are going right over the kids heads, like I don't dislike those movies, but I think that the LEGO movies are a little too cute about that. You know, I've seen plenty of things like, you know, the emoji movie or the trolls movie or whatever. Which are, you know, have theoretically adult jokes, but aren't trying to work that duality certainly the way that Pixar movies. Are you think about four key who like the new protagonist are like the new cool character here in Toy Story, four four key spends the movie like having an identity crisis like ease? He's a new toy but he thinks he's trash. And like he wants to be trash like he's literally, a spark with pipe cleaner arms, and he spends the whole first thirty minutes of the movie is going trash trash. And like I think that's really profound. And my son just really loves the way that four key keep saying, trash trash, like he did it. My son did it all the way home whole drive home like. And it's that's a cool. Little thing, that's you know, the different levels, and you can appreciate it on without it having to be this comedy versus tragedy divide. You know, it's sort of typifies, you know, again, like inside out, or even like the last toys story movie, Toy Story, three ends, of course, with, like, the scene, where they're all heading down into the incinerator, and they all sort of somberly, join hands and they're sort of resigned to the fact that they're all gonna die like all these little toys, and it's you know, I'm sort of a crying rack, and like my sons are sort of mildly disturbed, but they figure everything is going to be okay. And it is, but, like there's a moment of like pure pesos on that level in this movie, and I was, frankly, kind of relieves like the idea that I have to walk into every Pixar movie like braced dad, this huge sort of existential breakdown, you know, as my kids, just enjoy themselves like at felt like we pulled back on that. A little bit. And I was grateful for that. I agree with you. It's it did feel bit like an episodic adventure, which wasn't a bad Yang. I think sometimes you can get a movie like that, where the stakes have been lowered from the previous film, and you're like, well nigh. You're just wasting my time. But inevitably when it's a movie about anthropomorphized toys, somehow, it's nice to just have something that is a little bit more fun. I mean you mentioned Toy Story three which, you know, sort of ends with that transition from Andy to Bonnie, and then inevitably Bonnie becomes the, the young child, who is the owner of all these toys. And so were reintroduced to a world that features some of Bonnie's toys, and then the toys from the classical Toy Story story, and then four he comes along on the first day school. I, I did feel in that sort of first day of school moment that I was getting some of those inside out vibes that you're talking about where it's sort of, like they have managed to metastasized the most vulnerable feeling that you can have in your life. That that's scary trust. They of school where like I don't know anybody and everybody hates me. And I'm afraid and I miss everything. Is comfortable around me and they zero in on it, and they show it to you through the eyes of a little kid. And you immediately feel a recognition. That is a storytelling power. That is often overstated about Pixar allow me to overstate at wants more like it's amazing how they manage to locate and isolate those feelings and show them to you on screen, and make you relate to them like I am consistently blown away by that. There's another one at the end, when there's the kid lost at the fair, you know, she's just sort of there's a little girl, and she's crammed between, you know, to food carts or whatever, and she's crying and like, yeah, it's the exact same feeling and I yeah, there's a conversation also I think it's between Woody and four key. And like I think what he says, like, you know, these kids like you watch them grow up and become a person. And then they leave, you know, they'll do things you'll never see like the whole point of these movies is that the toys realized that one day, they'll be abandoned. You know, one day, they'll fall out a favor and one day, the kids will run off without them and won't need them anymore. That's, that's not even subtexts. Like that's just that's exa-. Exactly how parents feel watching these movies, you know, I think that's always there. And it is really striking. You know, I mean, this is possibly the best movie I've ever seen with the numeral four in it. You know what I'm saying? As you as you said, like I understand sort of the dismay, or at least a concern that Pixar has become by and large, like a sequel factory, you know, but I I I didn't dislike incredible to at all. But like I felt like certainly this was a better sequel than any of the other sequels that we've had this year. Obviously, you've been talking about how terrible and how sort of lifeless, they are like this is just a one eighty from that. Yeah. They staved it off. It's, it's a pretty impressive single-handed job in a in a friend summer from hell for this movie to come along and, and gay ever. So briefly, I think I think pause things one thing, that's notable too, is, you know, we're talking about the human emotion that they're able to imbue into these films and into these characters in the movies directed by Josh Cooley, who is. Essentially a first time Pixar director, though. He's worked for the company for a while and the screenplay has two people credited, but the story has two four six eight people credited and it's a complicated list of people. I'm going to read it to you really quickly story by John Lasseter Rashida Jones will McCormack Josh Cooley. Valerie LaPointe, Martin Hines, Stephanie, fulsome, and Andrew Stanton. Now, the last two people are the official authors of the screenplay famously when this movie came together, Rashida Jones and will McCormack her writing partner were brought on board to write it, and they eventually left the project because they felt like they were not as open minded about new voices, particularly a woman of color talking about the way to tell these stories for Pixar Pixar, very famously has had some fraught history with, with John Lasseter, one of its co founders chief imagine ear for a number of years due to sexual misconduct allegations. And the company has I, I would say affectively weathered the. Storm, whatever that can mean an has moved on from Lassiter, who I believe is most recently appointed to a position on inside of sky dance, and they're animated division of paramount, but it's so strange to have an event like that happening
Elton John, Bernie Taupin And Partner discussed on Bruce St. James and Pamela Hughes
"Has me smiling. Tell me this was a good movie really good care negative, please, please a young Elton, John. And this is really a here's what makes this different from bohemian, rhapsody just gonna get a lot of comparison shirt, but he mean ramp said he was almost like watching a documentary about Queen that involve them onstage or in-studio singing their biggest hits lip synching along. I mean obviously the actors were singing, okay? And. If a documentary at times, this is a movie. This is a story. And it is the story of Elton John and his writing partner. Bernie Taupin wrote all the lyrics meeting as kids and creating this world of Elton John and it, it is about Elton's screwed up childhood. It doesn't. It doesn't shy away from drugs, sex rock and roll, and. What I really liked about. It was that it used lyrics of Elton John songs to tell the story of Elton

"So Kevin foggy you the president of moral studios actually confirmed back in April that doctor strange to was going to happen. But just yesterday the Hollywood reporter released a report that said that Scott Derek's has quietly finalized a deal to return and a search for a writer to ten the script is about to get underway. So Derek Cohen directed the first doctor strange movie in two thousand sixteen he also co wrote that script, and it sounds like he's not going to be returning in that capacity for the sequel. So we don't know who's going to be writing this. So that that'll be an interesting co wrote that script with his writing partner Chris cargo, which he worked on a was, Emily. Sinister. Sinister. Yeah. Yeah. So it sounds like Cargill might not return for this. I know that cargo did get some controversy. He had appeared on some kind of talk show, and it was about Paul. Oh, it was a political thing. So I'm wondering if that is what's keeping Cargill out of this. Or like who is going to write this project? We we we have no idea. Right. Yeah. There's no indication. So the Hollywood reporter says the script is supposed to be written in twenty nineteen and the plan is to begin production in spring of twenty twenty which would then put this in the may twenty twenty one release slot. So it'll still be a little while before we see Dr strangers, you know, second solo outing but batches obviously coming back. Benedict Wong is supposed to be returning to play Wong as well. And then T H R says that Rachel mcadams is quote likely to return as Christine Palmer. But it sounds like she may not be fully locked in yet. So and also, no no word about Michael stool, Michael stool, barks character either. So we'll what to see what happens there. But this seems like I mean, everybody knew this was coming right? Like, I think we were talking. We were joking around in our slash film slash channel yesterday. When this news broke because people were complaining to the Hollywood reporter that this was a spoiler for the events of of injuries for of venture in game. Because doctor strange must survive the snap or hey, we don't know that this takes place before after avengers for right? But when. A certain point. We have to start thinking like, yes, there are going to be things that take place after that and mobile marble has a years long plan in the works here. And they're not in the business of starting franchises. And then just abandoning them after one solo entry, so. Yeah, this this seems like a given for a long time. I mean, if you look at the past, you know, release films, it looks like they're trying to do a trilogy of films with each of these heroes. So I would expect at least two more of these doctor strange movies. But that brings us to the question we next year, we have captain marvel Spiderman far from home in a vendor's endgame. What's coming after that? Ben, do we know do everything idea ESO we were sort of hashing this out yesterday. And I found an updated list of the Morville release dates, and so I'm just gonna read those dates which are confirmed and our guesses for what movies are going. Be slotted into those dates which are not confirmed, but seemed to be pretty good guesses. So may I twenty twenty we're guessing that's going to be the eternal 's November sixth twenty twenty may be black. Widow February twelfth twenty twenty one is probably going to be Black Panther to may seventh. Twenty twenty one is going to be doctor strange to almost certainly if they stick with the production schedule, they they mentioned here November fifth twenty twenty one may be like guardians three if they can figure out what to do..

I didn't stay too long. No, I can imagine. And and one story that we can't hear enough of on this show. Yes. You are friends with Pat McCormick. Was co writers. He was right. We were writing partners for almost five years now, which means I couldn't find pet eighty percent of the time and his his mantra was cover for me. At one time we had two jobs rolling and pet wasn't there, and his wife called Pat has the flu or Pat is at the track. He got locked out of his car. Then I find out he's doing the craft musical in New York, but that was Pat now tell us the legendary helicopter story. Yes, I was not there. But he can confirm it. I can confirm it because I do everybody who was there. Pat rented a helicopter with hookers and he would fly over the writers house over the house. The Hooker would blow the writer under under a blanket. Under a blanket wrinkle hill. That was always concerned with appearances. Yeah. Was there a sandwich? We were told there was like a sack lunch like he gave him out a tuna sandwich when they bought. That sounds right fat had you know no taste in food of logs. There was a lot of it. He didn't care what the hell it was, but I told I told Frank, the story of being thrown out of Westminster Abbey. Tell that what has great to patent. I wrote a special for Lucille ball called Lucy in London with Tony newly, and James Robertson Justice and directed by Steve vendor. Absolutely. W. guy anyway, were there, you know, Pat could embarrass a toilet seats. He just had a knack for that. Like we'd be walking on the street, see a pretty girl he'd say blow me, and then he shoved me said, this is an ugly American ma'am. Very sorry. Dare you offend this finished wom-. So there's there's some time often. He says, I want to go to Westminster Abbey. I said, when you're buried, they're all go with you. Because if I go, if you you'll embarrass me said, I'm a Harvard man. I know how to behave. Any was a Harvard man, which is ridiculous. Anyway, at this time, pets hobby was to drop his pants at unusual venues to make sure this was a comma dated in a swift manner. He would load as pockets with rolls of quarters to win. He'd released the belt, hang the court, the pants would hit. Standing there in the world's the world's cheapest underwear. Amid the worst. It was like a kid's underwear, bubble gum stuck to. It was horrible. Anyway, we're in Westminster Abbey and turn away from Moen. I have Bank, he's dropped his pants, and the guard comes over and he says, not in poet's corner, sir. And Pat said, is this poet's corner? He said, yes. So Pat recites there once was a man from then tuchus. We were throwing out not of Westminster Abbey because of Pat McCormick. Incredible credible.

"And so I was like, oh, that's great. And then I'll just pay it off right away. I didn't now I'm in a lot of credit card debt did good for flights, and so I got a free flight down there because I got these points and everything like that. A friend of mine, their family, let us stay there and Austin Dannon IDE and went with me, and we cooked food and kind of did our best, but it is really. Expensive still, but yeah. What was what was it like cats out by south west in terms of like, how did you use it. In a way that would benefit your future career? Like what opportunities did bring you while you're actually physically down in Austin? It's interesting because like you know, I, the idea of networking is like horrible to me as it is to most people and the idea of it just feels inherently gross. And so something that Laura was saying was she was like, you know, I didn't really know work at south by just like hung out with his performance from Chicago. We had a good time in. That's what networking. And so basically like it was really low stakes for me because I went on a whim. It was this film that I made that was excited about, but I wasn't trying to turn it into a feature. I wasn't trying to get a future made at the time I was going to hang and have a good time and watch films and meet people. And so I sat next to Laura moss director of Friday that just incredible on the festival circuit, and she ended up directing Allen Anders. We just sat next to each other and just started talking and then ended up. Eating into a bunch and hanging more and more. And I got out of one film screening and Brennan O'Brien who is a writing partner, which I didn't know at the time also got out and we had this long walk together and we just walked and talked and got no each other better. And then you know, six months after that, they reach out to make a film with me. So. So you weren't actually decide at the time like in Austin that you're gonna make a film together, this did you keep in touch between? We sit in touch. So what actually? So Laura came to Chicago because her film Friday got into the cog film critics festival, so she was coming there and then she knew about the shithole Ed told her about it, and I was like, I want to come and see that. So she came and saw the show and she saw me do what I've been calling sort of magical realism stand up comedy, which is like really surreal, stand up over music and things like that is what I was performing a lot about the time. And she saw that and was like, and you know, we just hung out after when we played with the idea of like issues like I want to shoot this and make a film out of this. And we sort of like toss. Around back and forth, and then you know, several months after that, they they reach out to do it because they wanna make. Yeah, they, they made a pact to make make film every year. So they they wanted to do that one. Yeah. So then what was it? I mean, those are two completely different experiences. I'm sure in terms of making your own movie and then clobbering with Laura to make this movie, what were the main differences between those two shorts in terms of what though what the work was was like? Sure. Yeah. It was really exciting to me. So this this one. So Alan Anders was a character that was working on this one particular set that I did I performed when I first moved to Chicago every month every week I was performing something new and just doing different things. And a lot of things did not work very supportive audience and you kind of like grow and learn from that. And eventually I started realizing I have all these things, but you know, scattershot sort of things, but nothing. Really getting polished her the next step or anything like that. So we started developing this one care to that was really excited about so is kind of like a baby of mine because this was like my first lie, performance character that really loved a lot. And I just trusted Laura a lot Laura Brennan..

"So February and we went to them, we went to everyone and said. He had the script we have Kate McKinnon has to be made a few months. Yeah, which I think for a number of reasons was tough. Like I mean, Kate is such a beloved person, but this is a high budget movie and and it needs to be internationally via balls. Well, and you know, in non English speaking countries, it's unclear whether and SNL big dealer not. So it was like, she wasn't, you know that that that calculation of like, who's sort of like internationally viable movie star person. And is that person available in kids very specific window. So it was very hard needle to thread with. Luckily Mila who is also perfect for the part being exactly the right person who also was free and didn't didn't require us to change anything about the character we had in mind, so it's which was great. I mean, it could have been like the absolute wrong actress was available and we're like, oh my not what she gets mood, she gets it may, but we have to change the sort of DNA the pattern really fast.
