And I went to end and auditions and I got this job and I went on the on the road. So I didn't I audition for it but I didn't meet him. He was there but I didn't meet him. I didn't meet him until we opened the Amundsen in Los Angeles and he He was a knock on the door Anna Neil Simon so it. You know he was. Taller than I imagined with the worn rimmed glasses news Mary kind and complimentary, and and that was the beginning, and then we did this play. Laughter on the twenty third floor sure a play in which I have been asked to play one of the comedy writers, and then when we did a reading of it, they said just for the purposes of the reading, You read Sid Caesar role because you know eventually but want a guy who's like six four. Two. Hundred pounds, I confine. And then and then they decided that I should plant raw. Neil Diamond said to me what you what you lack in height you make up for in anger. On That was a bonding experience we went out I got to go out of town with Neil Simon play instead of watching him crafted and work it, and then he I remember Coming in and we were rehearsing and he was sitting in the audience.

And so he would always come to me and said, he must have changed my entrance the scene of this character entering into the play. I don't know how many times he wrote it and would debate heats up free to try things and give them to. At the last minute. Ever regret being so gung Ho initially mad at all.

You know when when I was a kid I had What was called the fireside theater a play of the month club. And I play that I got. Was the odd couple. It's hard bound copy of the odd couple. Random House. You know in black and white photos of Arthur swelled photos of Walter Matthau and our Carney in the original cast and I remember I was very thrilling. You know to get this reading remember reading and I was like I don't know the sixth graders. Sticky and in a geography book and reading it. Yeah well. Eventually need done I done a candidate the Kennedy Center Honors He had been honored I had done. One of the one of the week it was me Christie Ramzi and Sin Cesar. Christine and I would do speeches from his plays and then Sid Caesar would talk in foreign. GIBBERISH. You know we killed killed. Every he would just start talking fake French or German or amazing, and then we will go back then I, did a speech from the odd couple and then eventually. Years later you this ladder and he said you know I want. I. Want to see you do the whole thing and. I've held onto the rights and I want you I want you to do it. And and so so then that's what sort of led to this. Ivory and Matthew was just the obvious your chemistry with him. So obviously natural and charming that was was he the obvious choice on? Yes. Yeah. Yeah and then you know it didn't hurt that we've done this little thing called the produce writes sure. What was a rather terrifying moment of? When we started because before we even went into rehearsal. It had sold twenty, one million dollars worth of tickets Oh. My God. Yes and I remember Matthew is like well, that's not good. He said. Well that's not good which is because people have heightened expectations. Expectations were hot. Yeah. Yes and are you playing? Are you alternating Oscar Felix eat talked about that? We talked about doing that, and then it was seems just hard enough to do the tar one price. So we didn't, we didn't wind up doing the UH. Hoffman and John C Reilly did true worse. Yeah. Yeah.

"Life short I'm your host Justin Long sorry about Downer note. Injury Sweetheart. But really uplifting because he gave us so much. and. Here's someone else who gives me a lot. Probably, some of you Christian Long Rather. I had to do a little bit of acrobatics to for that pivot. Impressive. Very impressive. It is strange though to miss someone that you've never met I've never met him and I feel like I. Miss Him. Well, I how important he was may I know my life growing up to to my? He entertained me so much that I miss I feel like, know why miss him the way you do and I knew him so briefly and not not well enough to miss him in that way but. This is very bragging but I I ran into his daughter. Months maybe a year after his death and just elda Zelda. Yeah. Very cool. So she she said that he had said Nice things about me really flattered. Me Yeah. I just love to his like you. I miss him. I loved him. I. Love was just brilliant. It's it's a very difficult thing. I think to be able to accomplish to vote that in strangers that I'd miss them and I'm really morning. Person You've never interacted with is like this I mean now. I know I, I never met Chadwick and I've I only heard the best things but nice things about him but I miss him as well. I'll miss him and you think about the the work of his that that the our world will miss will be deprived of it's. It's such A. It's impressive not in both cases that they left this legacy this Would a great gift they gave the world the and Robert. Cat. I can't wait to read that Book David Scuff wrote a book about Robin Williams that I is next up from me. I'm really looking forward to reading it because you'RE GONNA die in two, thousand, twenty, two. Post. It'll be impose pandemic read But Anyway, why are we talking about this a little bit of a Downer, but it shouldn't be a downer. Uplifting they're they're both. We were lucky to have them and they're both just really beautiful artists and and icons. Christian we're talking about how a friend of ours. Over uses that word a lot of people over that word that's become a it's like the new literally Oh. Yeah. So they'll be like, oh, so he basically said all of my. Other people. Follow me on. INSTAGRAM ICONS and. But and it's not true. Doesn't follow him There are I, cons, but you have to reserve that are point was that you have to reserve that word or else it loses its meaning that word has now been hijacked by popular culture, and now it's been diluted to the point where you can't describe share Nikon anymore because then people would be like, Oh, my all my friends Nikon to. My my friends share have a lot in common by the way that was an iconic thing to say how. So it was just well said, it was a decent. elegantly stated. I, am I know I Know but like. I think part of being an icon You obviously, you have to be significant. We're not the arbiters of who who isn't an icon, but I do know this. I know that all of our friend Keith's friends aren't icon right and here's another thing I know our guest today is an icon it's it's difficult argue against that. And and as well as a CO star. Of Robin Williams in one of his most iconic roles in the birdcage. Our guest today is icon Nathan Lane. is known for well the BIRDCAGE, but mouse hunts you lead with mousehunt. Really. Great movie. I would say he's most known for the producers introduce guys and dolls. Yeah. I'm hung up on some of these. Listening to the the Lion King of course, Yvo he voices the mirror cat named named. Don't I know it I know it I know it. I can hear him saying. Mon Mon.. Said Timon. Timon. Tim Known to Moan should ask him. Shit. Yes, he's a famous mirror cat. The most famous I would say and he he graced us with his presence today was cold I had met him once only briefly years ago at a reading of a play called the Nance which he did on Broadway and I did not do I don't remember why but. It was just such a fan of his and recast by. Nikon. Maybe. Maybe. Ben Platt took over our guest. Today is is I would say he's both a Sir and dame I would I think he qualifies. That's fair. Because we live in a time where genders fluid and his I would say most iconic one of his most iconic roles was when you call that character and the birdcage. He played drag Queen Drag Queen on the second of course you can say drag okay. Yes. We play Dragway Queen Yes Queen and. And we are Frankie's we should say I want to. Tell you what? He would drag queen of that movie and he I think it may be in the top five or ten most brilliant comedic performances. I've ever seen in a movie. It's it's amazing. Yeah. As much as we love Robin Williams as Brealey, like once Robin Williams let's face it. It's a once in a lifetime entertainer he is a Charlie Chaplin our time and. So it's so in order to steal any sort of the spotlight from Robin Williams, you know it's gotta be. That's a high bar. That is that is that is a big ask for performer and he's the funniest part of that movie. Is really funny and there's legends and that movie Nichols directed at Gene Hackman Diane. It's like Elaine may wrote it. It is. It's just such a masterfully done comedy and he he's the he's the. He's the reason these the funniest property so Back to twenty, twenty for a second Nathan is in penny-dreadful city of angels. Now on showtime where he plays a hardened la detective, this is very difficult to imagine, but he's so versatile as an actor that I'm sure he pulls that off. Yeah. I can see that especially having talked to him if I hadn't. You. Guys think about his prospects for playing a hardened detective in nineteen thirties. Twenty sounds cool. Anyway here this hopefully sounds cool as well to this interview with an interview. Does that sound like I'm giving it more critter view? It's an interview with the iconic. Lane. Dream sweetheart to.

It's better angels within. But I think there's a reason that tiger king The frightening sequel to we bought a zoo. There's a reason that it became so popular. It's about desperate people. Taking advantage of helpless creatures for their own selfish ends. It's sort of an irresistible train wreck of humanity where no one listens to one. Another and many died added it to be.

It's set in the nineteen thirties in los in. La You play detective who you say is the most emotionally complex character. You've ever played on screen and I really enjoyed the supernatural elements. But in what in what way is it the most complex character you've played because you've played so many this yes it sort of Raymond. Chandler leads Rod serling and this character The the brilliant John Logan wrote this for me which was has been a wonderful gift and He's a guy who's been on the force for a very long time. He's he's Jewish. He knows what it means to be an outsider. He's estranged from his children. His wife has died and he's also on the side investigating the Nazi infiltration of Los Angeles at the time which a lot of people don't know about but there are there are there are a few books about it which I had to read for research and It's it's incredible how Rampant Dude was at how many how many organizations were and and how Hitler was thinking of using L. A. As base of operations because of the film community and of course the weather even Nazis like Nice Weather Joy Tan while persecuting others. So it's it certainly is. It's a character that as as the series goes on and you'll see what he goes through. It's certainly by far the the the the most complex that that I've ever gotten to do on Filmon online incredibly grateful to John for that.

"Your and Nathan Lane is live from lockdown. Hey welcome back as the. Us Corona virus cases passed the one million. Mark the White House's putting its own spin on how things are going Take a look. I think you'll see by June. A lot of the country should be back to normal and the hope is that by by July. The country's really rock and again federal government rose to the challenge and this is a great success story And I think that that's really what needs to be told we're GONNA start to move around and hopefully in the not too distant future we'll have some massive rallies and people would be sitting next to each other. I can't imagine a rally where you have. Every fourth seat full. Every every six seats are empty for everyone that you have full. That wouldn't look too good so the son-in-law is saying this is a great success story and I don't know we've seen pictures of funeral homes that have had body sitting in box trucks for a while. So do you think most Americans are are gonNA take this to heart sunny that it was. It's been a great success. This and I thought those were some of the most tone deaf comments. I've heard from the administration. We know that jared Kushner has been sort of the behind the scenes task force. Leader Corona Taskforce Leader. He's been instrumental in this response. This piss poor response and sixty thousand Americans have lost their lives so to call this a rousing. Success story is is shocking It's cruel you know. The cruelty is staggering. And I don't think Americans are buying it at all. This is not a success story at all and I think to try to flip it like that is just cruel right and well you know who is planning a road trip to Ohio and to the state of Arizona. Megan why these such rush to get out of the White House and right to Arizona into anywhere else to do these rallies well. I agree with sunny that it's sort of bizarre narrative where we can't you know. I can't even go out and go to a restaurant or go to my doctor. I go to my doctor alone. They're closing beaches in California like we're nowhere near to opening up as a country but at the same time our president is really worried about rallies. And he's really worried about Arizona and Ohio because these are going to be makers break states for him going into the election Arizona. I never thought I would see this in my entire lifetime but Arizona has a really real possibility of turning into a blue state right now. Astronaut Kelly is running against on mic. Sally and there is on has been traditionally brought. I think for the past eight years and we're seeing what the growth of immigration and just honestly changing times Arizona. Always been a really independent state. And he's losing right now he's losing an Arizona and so I think it is obviously more important to him for him to get out and possibly exposed people at rallies in my home state than keep Arizona and safe and I think it's a travesty and I think another example of why on election night I may very well be with you ladies and saying I never. I never thought I'd see the day but it's looking more and more like it could very well happen. And he's nervous and he's also yeah and he's also saying he can't wait to have these rallies again and I I just don't understand where we're his hand is as especially as you just pointed out. Megan this puts other people at risk. What do you think joy well the rallies he lives rallies? This is his whole thing because that's where he gets the adoration. He's so addicted to and and his supporters are dictated to him in a way. So it's a it's a marriage made in heaven and everybody's lives put at risk including his including his but I love the way he jared two toddlers a they want what they want to. Okay I want to open up. The stadiums aren't want to go back to where it was. I want I want to go to Disneyland. Disneyland is closed. Okay so shut up. You're not going to Disneyland but our back down right okay. That's right. We're we're not open yet. We're not open yet and for all you little toddlers out there just know that you're not going anywhere right now except we're going.

"You know that that there's a whole story in his life that is fascinating and He lived all over Los Angeles. I mean he. I mean really how we know Los Angeles a lot of that comes from Raymond Chandler. The the whole feel and his. The writing is just spectacular. It's it's you know he was such an original. So let's just say this has nothing to do with the old penny we have. We have a great deal of respect for the old penny dreadful and and it had it had a very ratisbonne fan base that loved it loved Eva Green. This has nothing to do with it. Add and this is not a continuation in any way. We must think of penny dreadful as a an anthology title. Not Unlike American Crime Story or American harvest. Right this is. This is Raymond Chandler meets Rod Sterling. There are there are there is a supernatural element to it that is tied into Mexican folklore. But it it is not They has nothing to do with taking characters from gothic literature. And mixing the mall right for for what it's worth Nathan. I was a fan of the original show and I really like where you guys are going with this new version this new anthology series that you've created here so while yeah I mean it's John this is all John logie he and he's it's more of a this is kind of you know. I I I hate to turn it into something political but it is. He did write it in in response and he's talked about this Publicly at the. Tc A rest day in. He said you know this was a reaction to what was going on right now in the country so there are those sociopolitical elements to it and yet it is. It is a thrilling yarn. He is created. And in this case the monsters that you met people my remember fondly from the original. The it's about the monsters inside all of us and and how How easy it is for people to get in touch with dark side and It's so it's really more about the human story. I think than than the kind of thing that happened. The first time around and It's a really look. I think it's a it's a really great and compelling story and and normally tapestry. There's so many different worlds It takes you know it takes a few episodes for you to start to see how all of that Inter Inter intertwines and I think people will find an injury and elements of the show are inspired by real events in La during that time as a New York. Did you know much about the dark history of l. a? In that era I did not I I was sort of aware of the Nazi infiltration of La but not to the degree that I realized when I started doing research and reading all these books about what was happening at the time because my character Lewis Michener is aside from the the central murder mystery that he and his partner trying to solve there is a he is working on this this the fact that there's all of these Nazi groups in La and Investigating them in one particular Guy Who's play by a wonderful wonderful German actor? Thomas Cashman so that all of that is you just can't believe what was going on and how how prevalent it was and there were just your is huge plays called the Deutscher House where they were meetings and rallies and there was a camp into Pango where they will are. They starting a militia group. There was the silver shirts were who were an offshoot of the Brown shirts. There was obviously there was the Ku Klux Klan. A Bud You know this was hard of the storyline was inspired by this brilliant Jewish. Royer Leon Lewis. Who formed a aspiring to investigate these organization really and foiled countless assassinations and killings and bombings and A. He was a true American hero and without him. I you know we. We could easily all be speaking German. It is unbelievable what he was able to put an end to. But and without the help really of The local police. Who told him you know? They were interested in and the government. Who said you know? We're not worried about Nazis Communists. And so eventually he went to all of the studio heads who were Jewish and gathered them at the hill. Crest Country Club and said listen. My Law Firm is is failing. Because I'm spending all this time running this network and here's all this information and I need some financial assistance to keep this going because you know the these people are liable to come to your neighborhood and you know you foil and be. They wanted to kill it. I you know many famous people that were on a list it just it was. It's extraordinary when you start to see the extent of it. That's incredible. I never knew that story. Oh Yeah so So that is a part of the story line and Wow and it gets more and more complex as as it goes on and a couple while. I I guess I shouldn't revealed to let let's leave some mystery here. And but the show does assert that Hitler had big designs on l. a. Some kind of sun drenched not to Utopia. And I do understand that. There may have been some basis for that. Our that's absolutely true e. absolutely wanted it for as a base of operations and mainly because of the film community because he wanted access all of that. Yeah total each of the show is just terrific. Nathan Before WE GO I. I know that you had a long friendship and working relationship with the late. Great Playwright Terrence McNally. Who just died a run a virus complications? I think three weeks ago Do you want to say a few words about him before we go? Look he was the Thea- worlds The world in general lost. A you know a giant major playwright and and a groundbreaker in terrance and and for myself personally. I lost one of my closest dearest friends and someone who certainly champions me very early in my career and the the WHO really gave me some of the best and most important roles in the theater and I certainly I. I would not have had a career without him and giving me those opportunities in wanting to collaborate that way and and I have been in New York for eleven years at that point but it was really when I did The first play I did his call the Lisbon. Traviata was the thing that really kind of put me on the map and changed everything So it was a collaboration of really close to of over thirty years. But the last thing we did was a revival of the play of his called. It's only a play on Broadway which was a great success in Was He was a a monumental part of my life and and And certainly of monumental part of the gay community and he was writing about gay issues way before other people Starting with his Broadway debut with the play cold and things that go bump in the night he was and he was just a just wonderful wonderful friend and and yeah it was a devastating loss talent and he will definitely be missed. What a loss. Well again on the lighter side I loved you and producers. It's more I appreciate that. I appreciate your kindness and generosity absolutely wants more look for Nathan Lane in Penny dreadful city of angels premiering Sunday April.

"How did you first get into the theater from what I can recall? You didn't exactly come from big theater family. Did you know no-one no-one in in my life was involved in show business at all We were from Jersey City I had two older brothers Bob and Dan and my oldest brother. Dan is the one who really introduced me. to the theater He certainly encouraged me to read a great deal and then also took me to the theater. Took me to see plays in New York Broadway and off Broadway He volunteered my services for a play. That friends of his were doing in college Because they needed a child in one scene and so he that that was my first time. Stepping onto a stage was in this college production of a play by Frank. Gilroy who'll save the plow boy not a great title. This man who wrote the subject was roses but he wrote was a play he wrote cold. Who'll save the plows boy and I and I was They needed a child in somewhere in the second act. The first time I was brought on stage so it was really my brother who encouraged that and and and you know my my father had died when I was when I was eleven and my brother. Danny I think about you know he needed to be a father figure mentor in that way and so he he certainly was a big part of encouraging my love of reading and in of the Cedar. And what was your first? Big break was at present laughter. Or what well on Broadway? Yes that was that was my Broadway debut with George. The Great George C. Scott Young in nineteen eighty two. I believe in circle in the square. Theatre. Yeah I had done a television series with Mickey Rooney and Dana. Carvey cold one of the boys. I been in Los Angeles and then I came back to New York to do the series and then I and I knew it was not going to last very long. And then we did thirteen episodes and finished. And then I auditioned for this revival of the Noel. Coward play present laughter. The George C Scott surprisingly was not that he was. It wasn't surprising that he was directing but that he was starring in it as well in the in the Noel Coward role so that was unusual adding but he was a brilliant of comic actor as well as a dramatic actor and It was a and it was a big surprise. Hit for me. That was a huge huge thing. I'm trying to picture him in that role. That's interesting war in along the lines of John. Barrymore than as sort of aging Noel Coward Matinee Idol. It was more in the Jog Barry family but I'm but he wonderful in it I mean really Larionov and very touching two at time. I'm trying to remember what the line was from the from that show no prayer. No bribe no threat. No power will induce me to go to Africa with Bro. Willard and no Goddamn son of a bitch ever went to war by dying for his country. I immediately go into patent anytime. Try To picture George C. Scott and the role while he was the only person I know who could make the word. Darling sound like a command direct ahead and say darling and you would sort of jump to attention now Nathan before we talk about Penny Dreadful. I have to bring up. Perhaps a penny and I have to worry important. Yes yes I have to bring up your role in one of the all-time Great Broadway shows I would say it's right up there with Oklahoma. My Fair Lady West side story all the classics. You were in the legendary Musical Merlin starring of all People Doug Henning hundred gaining met. Remember Doug Henning. Yes yes well. You have a good memory yes. He was a very popular magician or is he likes to be called an illusionist. It's an illusion. He was very popular and in the seventies and Previously had done a musical. The magic show written by Stephen Schwartz. That was a big head right. I forgot about that. So someone in their infinite wisdom decided he should be in a real book musical. Where there was a. He played a character and in this case is he was playing young. Merlin and then it was written by the gentleman who wrote like Colombo. Lebanon Levinson Richard Levinson and bill link. Perfect talented they had done a lot of successful television but he had never written the book to a musical before and then it was and it was directed by a gentleman from the SE. Frank Dunlop a British director. Who eventually left everyone eventually? And yes Merlin. It was billed as Merlin the magical musical the entire family and Chita Rivera the grades legendary Chita Rivera played. She had no name. She was just called the Evil Queen. Anne I played her idiot. Son Prince Fergus. And she wanted me to become King of England and she was going to do anything to stop. Merlin from helping Arthur Young Arthur's and the throne. I I think that was vaguely the plot while although you know dog who was a Yes he was a very talented magician. was not really an actor right singer or a dancer but here he was starring in the middle of this big very expensive especially for the time Broadway musical. And he couldn't for example he couldn't do an English accent. He was from Canada so we that they said well. Since Doug can do an accident you should do an accident so it seems to be taking place somewhere outside of Ottawa and But we had all sorts of There were animals and from His Majesty Guy. They tried to build the show around all of these magic tricks and and also tried to create a real book musical and And didn't really work and I was sort of the comic relief and But you know my memory is just a joy of getting to work with Chita Rivera and I do remember. Deng haning this was. He told me a story once. He was a lovely man and he said he told me the story of opening night. He had an opening night in Vegas and there were many many scars there that night then the the end of his acts the finish to his big act. He and his wife. Debbie worked together and he would turn his wife Debbie into a white Bengal tiger. That was the big finish. And so they were. Debbie have disappeared and there's a pedestal and there's a white Bengal tiger sitting on it and the audiences cheering and he's taking a bow and he looks over and he sees the chain that is usually attached to the pedestal is swinging back and forth underneath the Tigers mouth and he looks at the tiger and this all happened in a manner of seconds like thirty seconds and the tiger is looking at the audience and like a buffet and starts to walk off the pedestal and head towards the audience and the audience starts to panic in screen and Doug who about ninety eight pounds soaking wet ran and grabbed the the chain started to try to pull the tiger and the tiger It was surprised by this. Turn and swatted him with his paw and Doug fell back and the next thing he knew he said the tiger was on top of him and was licking his entire face up to its hair life and he realized this isn't affection. He's cleaning his cray because he then took his entire head a little head and took his entire head into his mouth and he said I felt is teeth going into my neck and he said luckily I passed out and because I fainted. He said my body went limp. The Tiger opened his mouth to look what happened and by that time the trainer had gotten to him and pulled him off and he said the next thing. I knew I woke up in the dressing room. I was on a bad. He's an I looked up. And Bob Hope of all people with standing over me and he said that's the greatest finish. I've ever seen show business story while I mean you got animals. You've got a score written by film composer Elmer Bernstein. Don't for such musical romps Cape Fear. He was a lovely man. You had earned stain Don Black Don. Who wrote born free what to go out of me award winner. What could go wrong at the wrong? We in previews for months longer than any other show in the tree of Broadway but we opened people's Oughta was a revival. It's pretty much. The PLOT TO THE PRODUCERS. I think I wonder if some various machinations in the background with the producers of the show that it was an attack loss for something exactly well. Let's talk about penny dreadful this interesting role for you you actually play an lapd detective. Who is and I'm Jewish CA. Can you tell us about him? Well you know. This came about because the brilliant writer John Logan sent me an email and said I wrote this part for you and I hope you'll do it. He sent me the first episode and I was just knocked out in thrilled and gratified That he would think of me for this because I thought not many people in Hollywood would cast me in this particular role by John Who I know a bid from New York theatre had. He said he had he had seen me in. The iceman cometh and thought this is who I think should play this point So He's a Louis Michener is a is yes Is a grizzled old Jewish detective on the LAPD in one thousand nine hundred thirty eight? We've seen it all very. It's very much your classic hardboiled detective. But he's a complicated fella and he has partnered with this young Mexican. Who is the first Mexican detective on the Force Character Tiago Vega played by antastic young actor named Danny Zumbado and He has partnered with him really because no one else would would partner with him and I think he also understands what it is to be an outsider the ING Jew and he's becomes his sort of father figure and mentor. He's he's estranged from his own children as his wife has has died so I think he hopes to get it right with this young man that he he could hopefully be a better father to him that he wants to his own children and so it creates a real bond between them especially as as the episodes go on and it gets more and more complex but he's It's a wonderful characters. Certainly the most interesting in in an emotionally complex character that I ever played a really ill mortality. Yeah because people know you comedies a lot of times but you know it must have been fun to play someone who isn't a laugh riot. I mean you kind of had some gallows humor to him but he he also has a dark cynical view. Oh yes he kind of. Sardonic were yeah. He's one of the few serious show. He's one of the few people who does have a very dark sense of humor. But that's sort of the Raymond Chandler Tradition Yeah and look yes for people who if you only know me from something like modern family? Yes this this will be a revelation if you if you if like you you and you very kindly have followed a lot of my work in the theater then it will. It will be as quite a revelation. But it's it's a it's certainly is a. It's very exciting for me. Look I have I had a stunt double. It was so exciting. Or was that a. I go absolutely and you know I've pistol whipping kids dragging them to the edge of a cliff and then stepping on their faces. It was. I had the time of my life. yeah it was. It's great fun and a really terrific and challenging the aerial. It's an interesting through line from this new season to the original seasons because penny dreadful city of angels has this heavy influence from Pope Crime and detective novels of Thirties and forties which are in a way the natural successor of the old Victorian era. Penny dreadful CZ. Are you a fan of all the old Raymond Chandler Dashiell Hammett gumshoes and La Noir? Films like big sleep. Chinatown L. A. confidential those things. Oh Yeah I mean I you know it's funny. I went back to the to read the big sleep when when when I was in. La Filming this. And I just just marvel at Chandler's language and humor and.

How big Bro? I had come out here. This was in nineteen eighty. This is So you're in a couple of years in your ogling actor and it but this is this part we skipped over. which was that? I was in the world of standup comedy because I'd done a show with another actor named Patrick Stack and people liked us together. Thought we were funny together and you play. We'd done a musical musical revue. Okay out of those and I did a lot of stuff so We eventually we wrote wrote for some people. And then we put an act together and then You know we're in clubs. And and and we were signed by an agent at William Morris and and in one thousand nine hundred eighty we came here to la. You're doing stand up. Catch a rising star and stuff at at the IMPROV and a couple of Improv Improv. Forty and yeah and the next thing. We're we're here in LA. I'm at the back of the comedy store and the David Letterman is onstage. Yeah neither one of US actors. Neither one of us were thinking you know stand up. Comedy was goal but we thought of what might lead to serving and we were doing just we were doing. Sketch Meteorite And so it was. I mean I have. I have the utmost respect for standup comedians. And and just so I but I never thought of myself as standard. It didn't produce a show I presented by Mike bigly. Oh that's different. I presume you well. No the money didn't change hands. I you know he asked me. We have become friends when he was putting the show together. He and and they were going to debut off Broadway and he was talking about another one person show that was being presented by Meryl Streep God and He. He was annoyed. How did she get Meryl Streep to presenter so so And then he looked at me and he said which would you present me and I said sure I'll present you I do. I have to write a check and he said No. I said I'll definitely talk present. You I'll present the hell out of you so suddenly it said and I said if you think it'll help and he said well in in terms of the theater yes so it would say negatively presents Mike particularly in sleepwalk with me in which is the first time that I saw you as an actor in the movie here.

Thank you it was. It was one of the first times I did it. I think is that right. I haven't done that much. You know as before I did anything's before I did Nehemiah Nehemiah show or glow or anything so yeah it was only the second or third time. I've been on screen in that capacity. Yeah Nice of Mike to ask me well. It was it was is a really great little scene and I had no idea you were presenting me not the movie. The last one I presented presented that I didn't now only presented sleepwalk with me. Oh wait why didn't you present this one He he didn't ask that's weird. I know because he has somebody else. Now Brad big time producers. Now he doesn't need me anymore. He's a big head. Can we get back to this because now I'm curious. So what do you few I can use it over. No not at all you kidding. I hope you're my new best friends and your Yeah you can stay here at the house if you want So you're out doing stand up. Yeah and this leads to what well so we come out here and and We made a debut at the comedy. Hamady store sure and then then we We were when did the MERV Griffin show. Oh my God and Merv said Oh they just blew the roof off the comedy store. Then we went out and tanked tanked tanked on Merle just before Elke sommer was discussing her artwork. That was the warm Emma so wasn't quite ready for the hijinks of stack and lane. You know and then we open for rock acts Eddie Rabbit in Petaluma did that we open for Algebra. Oh Nice Tempe Arizona. You were doing those. What fifteen twenty minutes spots? That's right ahead of the Rock Doc. Acting GIG in the world. They don't bill. You know they just they just before Eddie. Rabbit here's the comedy stylings of Stacking Lane and people are booing home my growing things. It was a Petaluma the either the home of the wrist wrestling champ. Sure Yeah and there was a sea of cowboy and all you know you. Just they'd already ravaged show. I'm their drugs for Rabbit. And now now these clowns and he literally were yelling and screaming through the whole act and then the the local deejay who is sort of emceeing or hosting this concert here came out and yelled them. Scolded them these guys. This came all the way from New York fucking city and you better shut up and listen to them. He went off and then it was dead silence for the rest of the APP suicidal. So did you like that point where you get on the Westwood Comedy Store and I remember in the middle of a sketch. A Guy came him up and said to me from the audience he was drunk and he said. If you don't stop this I'm going to kill you needed. Nobody that was the time of you. Know Sir Drug Humor and you know it was not you know people didn't want to hear and now we take you to a bar somewhere in Manhattan. WanNa see you fucking sketch. They wanted and lewd jokes. Stop this I'm going to kill you. Don't stop this. I'm GONNA kill you. And he was the owner of the club laying the So yes I did all. I did that for like a year or so and then got this auditioned for the Mickey Rooney Sitcom but it was shooting in New York City. And that's what got me back here. And then after that I did my first Broadway show which was A revival speaking of British comedy of Noel Coward's present laughter starring. George C. I Scott Oh my God who directed and starring George C Scott directed that was my Broadway debut. And that's that was a moment where I thought. Oh I remember remember he was. There was the opening night. And we were in the circle in the square theatre on Broadway in there. Yeah there yeah and he was. He was leading Louis Tirade against my character. He was the no coward character. And he's reading me the riot act and and out of the corner of my eye. I could see Tony Randall. Sitting across watching us and he looked delighted by the scene and I was like man Dan. I think I've really made it George. C. Scott is ripping me a new asshole and Tony. Randall is watching. It happened a baby. This is is it this is it. What was George C Scott like man? He was a complicated located tortured. Soul who If you read anything about him but he was very kind to me very very kind. And he sort of eighty-two so he's coming into the later part of the life yes and it was a surprise that he was playing this part and doing no coward he was. He was brilliantly. Funny Actor when you know in comedy and you know he was obviously obviously you look You know he was many different things but he was. He loved me and he was very fatherly. And kind to me. And this was a huge opportunity and the great part and But you know I remember when we did the very first read through. This is different time. You must realize we have. I read through a play and we finished and he said out loud to somebody. You know what I like about this. Cast no fags off so I look at this older character who I know is I'm thinking should we tell him again. Like Mickey Rudy. I don't WanNa ruin his day. Dana Ivey actress who is sitting next to be leaned over and said I'm sure he meant that in a nice way. There's the CO dependency of the theater community. But then he he couldn't and you know and this was by again. It was a play by Noel Coward and he said this but then he was incredibly incredibly generous and sweet to me. And you know I you know to be on stage with him. He was he for all of his faults. offstage stage he was electric on state is one of the great great actors and and so it was a joy to work with him. That's a great baptism into Broadway. Certainly yes and you know and then I I worked with him again. Nine years later we did play called on borrowed time. And how was the old and up Ari not so good. Not could you know we did this. He was a boozy all the way. Through Right Oh oh yeah well. He said in some interview with New York Times when we were doing the play. He's said I'm a functioning alcoholic. Yeah Yeah so so I'll be must have that experience a lot throughout your career where you're working with because I've never talked to somebody who is essentially a you know It probably the most successful Broadway actor working. I mean you've done amazing shows and evil constantly. kept working on Broadway. I don't I know people that have done stage but you are stage guy and is that something that you're happy with I. Ah yes I mean I have. You know I've done other thing. Of course time has gone on. Yeah you know I've I've I've tried to change what what is sort of there was sort of a perception about me by doing more serious thing. I think I like. I am just now when you walked up Mike. That's that's not the same Nathan Lane I grew to know. I thought that you were different. So the change worked. Oh did it. Y- AH maybe it's just Glendale. No I act a little different Glendale but you know the the inner is not a steppingstone it is. Ah You know you never thought it's the greatest right for me. It's not only home right. It's the greatest venue for an actor because you're in control. No one is yelling. Kat and no one is right editing your performance you go from the beginning to the end and and in the theater. I've been allowed to to do things that I've never been allowed to do in film or television right. Rhino Roy Cohn angels in America. You just did that. Righty a a couple of years ago. Yeah I I don't think like early on when you sort of showed up on everybody's radar I. I don't know if it was. I think it was before the I mean. When was the producers was it was probably the birdcage? Don't you think sure. Yeah where everybody's sort of like the lion king the original line right but yes but like as a the birdcage absolutely and that kind of it was. It was an interesting timing for that was sort of an important bit of business that that the movie and yeah I mean look if I had I remember did when I saw it on the upper east side when the the French film. Yeah Look Jeff All all right and and and thinking this is. It's so brilliant. Because it's so subversive in the you know the straight people are the villains the gay people are the heros. Yeah Yeah and and just loved it and Mike Nichols and Elaine may had always wanted to do it and so it was sort of a reunion for them. Look it has had an effect act did have an effect on people and and it was positive for the most part here but it's very mainstream and in many ways it's much less aversive versus than the French film. Sure but Because I think Mike wanted a commercial success but also like to create you know less sympathetic characters for for a judgmental Middle America. Yeah we're deal when you so you. I mean the the scene. The scene at the on the bench when he's run run away from home and Robin shows up and says here would sign this thing. This palimony agreement.
