Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation, Big Little Lies, Step Brothers) is an actor, producer and genuinely one of the nicest people Dax has ever hated. Adam sits down with the armchair expert to discuss how he fell backwards into comedy after seeking a career in dramatic acting, his hero worship of Spike Lee and the two of them discuss why they had a mutual unappreciation for the other before they met. Dax tells the story of how he unpredictably ended up on Letterman and Adam speaks about his struggle with self-worth and recognizability. They examine their differing perspectives on being a younger sibling, Dax commends Adam for taking on projects he loves and they both agree, unequivocally, that Will Ferrell is the greatest.

I welcomed the armchair expert today we're going to speak with Adam Scott. Just an all around nice human being on a lotta levels. He is currently star of show he produces called ghosts, did on Fox, which airs Sunday Knights and I've seen him in a million movies. Unbelievably funny is also an incredibly skilled actor. You ve seen me, I HBO show Monica. What's it called but, though women their very powerful big little lies he's. Little lies in though I wanna put an emphasis on just what a good person he is, but before Are we listened to Adam Monica my chat. I want to do a little bit of housekeeping as my friend SAM Harris calls it couple. Things has been brought to my attention with the help of social media that I rub people too much, and I am willing to accept it. That's probably true. This is
Yes, how I talk in real life, which is an unfortunate realisation on my end, but you know I'm always trying to learn and better myself, so you will hear some episodes before. I was given that loud, clear note from the world on social media, but I'm here a much better effort. That's not a great sentences at my gun, much better effort. You're gonna make an effort. I'm gonna make an effort to interrupt less, also been brought to my attention, Some people don't realize that Modoc is very much a part of this podcast physically animal. Only she sits right next to the gas we ve got left her out of some photos, which is to blame, rob that's really whose department not mine, but if you feel like monocles, interrupting at some point she's very much, not interrupting. She is an integral part of the conversation at all times so view here, her she not buddy. Jesus, adding the color that we love to get from her side. Note about Monica recently become obsessed. With her grandma. How am I supposed to picture of her? You have you on the website,
her grandmother who was married in India and an arranged marriage in the photos taken. I assume right around that I've been told wedding day our wedding day. You guys, she's, all of them she so smoking hot. I, if I had a time machine, I would not go by apple stock. I would go straight to India and try to win her away from monocles grandpa she's, a stone, cold foxen from a very high cost. I understand their highest, I'm flattered by proxy yeah. You should be I think you ve, I don't look like herself. No I'd like, as I see it, yeah anyway, she's dongle box of we. Get a picture of her up on the website and everyone else can them and the same session. I have regretting saying that an all novo on everyone, grandma leering MA. I wouldn't love it. If everyone thought my Papa Bob was super ha. It would make him so happy in Epps, and she or whatever you say, put posthumously. I think
in the grave you be smiling to know that everyone thought he was handsome and well built without further ado. I please sit back enjoy our conversation with Adam Scott he's Compass, Nelson one of these coffee cups, and we want you can sell these for ass, the planned Adam Scott thing. So much for joining the armchair expert. Thanks for having me dad you're a very busy man, you're an accomplished man, a productive man Suffice to say I did feel guilty asking you to make yet another hour of time. For someone attacks that, if you feel that guilt feel that times a thousand for me asking you to come and do go a hooker now, what's gray is maybe this could be cathartic for both of us? I was nothing but flattered when you asked me to do ghost it. I thought all while here's a show this guy created.
It couldn't be closer to his heart and he would trust me with some scenes in it. That's insane, first of all that you would think I created at that's very flattering. But you can I go presently misinformed. Did I gotta go anywhere NEO Munich produce at so were rob in there with it, but your guy named Tom Gorman, can actually created by you coming and doing it was above and beyond, and in also the fact that I e mail, you or texted Judah, to ask you just sort of cringing, as I said, and the email like this is a huge ask and within I'd say four minutes, your life yeah, where and when. Well, I'm so, just by the way I only invite people on here that have had that experience with me, because I certainly other people s other experiences mandate. You ve been very far away. I do not want them speaking, but I will say that the act I after doing
day on your show, I said, might now. My goal in life now is to get cast as like a MAX headroom type character gap because I was throughout the whole episode, but I was able to shoot in about ninety minute. Yes, ah sitting still and reading the teleprompter that that is not the dream job, I'm not sure. What is it real, I was so jealous of you yeah you are able to do so, oh episode, Metallica had a scheme was our entire thank upward throughout Europe, and I knocked out ninety minutes. You sure did not get out of the park. How did you in dumb Naomi come to produce at Naomi? Is your wife? Yes in she's, a fox she and she's brilliant? Yes, that's you're, pretty damn good combination. Ya got she really as you ve noticed from being friends, were Kristen not very bright, not nor a try. So yeah, so I'm in greater
of your situation, I'm so sorry. Your situation, Hoover Tom came in pitched pitch Tom Lenin, Tom Gorham, again couple years ago, just kind of a really kind of I would say the boat of an idea and then a kind of grew from there were. We all went out and pitcher data together with great Robinson and ended up on Fox. But the interesting thing is: is that now we are sort of rebuilding it in a way or you are? We are shooting another six episodes now with different, show runner different writers, all new town. It really is a completely different Joe, while really wild, which I dont know if that's been done before in the middle of first season by Y know our net show somehow actually switched genre right. It went from either mall it either
a single Cameron and went multi camp or stardom Multi came one single camera they winning the former. They were going to turn it into my hand, but I don't think they adhere now, actually did it, but I know they were about Today's wrote, episode, They all agreed that I think you I think right before they actually shot, may be one yeah yeah. So other than that yeah it in how extreme will first of all like to say that goes, did is As I understand it is basically a kind of a comedic x files right with you and Craig. We now is useless, engineer supernatural. Yet there is a story there's yes cases its bit procedural, yes and comedic, which is a really there. Were there wasn't really a template for thee, Cypher acting comedy our show, and that was something that ended up being a real challenge was having a case or a villain master in twenty one and a half mania
but people might not even realises to get very basic, which is typically entail vision. Your comedies are a half hour and your dramas are in our gas, which really is forty four minutes and twenty two minutes. Yes and You are given eight days to shoot generally a drama in your given five days to shoot a comedy. That's right! it is very hard if you're telling a network I want to do this, show in it in you want to break that paradigm. You wanna go. Oh it's a drama d. I wanted, but I want to do in twenty two ino yeah. So already what you're saying as you you're fitting in a box that normally probably doesn't go in that's right and it was a challenge. Did you guys this? Gus, like ledges, do a drama. Let's do forty format we wanted yeah, I mean originally. I think that the idea was kind of my ultimate fantasy was: let's makes midnight runnin twilight zone. Those two things together, let's get a mind bendy
cross pollination, yeah yeah and with that really kind of tender, real relationship in the middle of the whole thing. They are these guys that you care about and trying to stuff as much story into each episode as we, like, for instance, your episode introducing you, your daddy, I character and then having it having the character. Be this wonderful, pleasant addition to the office and then turn into a villain turn everybody against each other. All The things that you did in that episode would have worked if we had spread out over, say three episodes right, but in twenty one and a half minutes inevitably feels a little under cooked. If this big turn is happening- and you just go- to meet us, go ahead, you trying to get jokes and therein characters a yacht will because, as I think of it, the a plot line of that really is the fact that you and Craig, you obviously desired be better friends with him,
ray you wanna go to concerts and stuff right away. I, and so that's like get there, that's the core of the story line, so that gets short shrift, as does the kind of suspense element and that you know wanting to have your you're a character, be genuinely scary. Everything sort of gets a little ass forwarded yeah ends its help. People listen to this progress. I think on one point: five is to go as far as they forget that two hours my actively on this- and I would also like the chief executive, so everyone was doing a great job and- and I think it's entirely by working with everybody- was great and ending it's terribly possible for well meaning people to have fun working together, but also may be trying to make different shows that the earlier, so it was all great and everything it just didn't totally end up back
in the way that it was as an observation of your own, were you going whom this this isn't hitting the Bowles. I in my mind of what I wanted it to be used to be totally honest. Guess right, but I think I was listening terrifying. Rather, it is Yok as her you're making me show and near the once. The train leaves the station and you're making a network show yeah, I know, might make sure is analogy, for it is urine. You know the indifferent hundred and you have to change all of the wheels and gas up the car, nothing except you. You aren't able to pull out over a writer. I so you gotta get these episodes shot, none of the other and put them on television.
There's their manners. I made the way these superheroes sequels are made where they have a release state long before they ve already made the cups at Mcdonald's yeah. So you get a little talk and shoot on April for them and whether you got a script or not, what happens all the time totally yeah? Totally it's a beast. It is. It is terrifying. You you ve been through the whole thing, so were we're kind of starting over Polly bursting came in a guy that ran the office for years, terrific writers, it's it's a totally different, don't really focused on character, and there is a mystery a larger kind of mystery and big big question, but I read out overs five or six. So dry and drank stuff, it so were able to really focus on The commission has in the summer that feels a little bit to me. This successful approach that last man on earth to yet foretaste show, which is this overarching issue of that he's alone on planet earth and rice bans,
horrific apocalypse or whatever you but you're, not solving any. Given thing I given up a soda just like a very tiny vs, yet they live So your stories are more personal and then you'll have that kind of an overarching story that yet it happens throughout the that the Series Yang, so that big overarching thing has room to breathe and are you gonna have fun with it and there's has begun to answer a question and what is that? What is that I mean I mean, while there are fun little personal stories and you know we have a deal act, are we of Alley Walker and Amber Stevens West Tour, the other three regulars on the show and they're so great, and there wasn't really room for them. The really show how great they are before and so rarely room for them to their all. Amazing yeah and we added some more ensemble player, so it's at its head, but already half hour, yes, ok, yeah, and did it did didn't networks?
you. Did the studio come to you and pitch this solution, or did you send up a red flag and say, let's How to? How did that all happen in how how defend? were you initially hearing that or I'll open to it? Were you? I think that we were all in favour of figuring out away to make this thing where I think it was cleared everybody this isn't quite functioning in the way that the end product isn't the thing that is you know like. I said there was no template for it, so everyone was doing their best trying to make. This is a square pagan around whole little bit as far as John run tone and China make this thing, really click and twenty one and a half minutes yeah- and you know we were all working- are our butts off.
Item make it work in it was you know it ended up, just not being the exact kind of way to go. So I think everyone was in favour of figuring out some way to shift it and Paul had a really great idea of added Polly resting at a great idea of how to do that. So we went back and sort of re pitched it. The key to the network and sort of. Why isn't that and that's great? They were open to that. Oh totally, yeah. They were terrific about a real, that's good! I mean that's a big ask. Well, let's This thing you, Greenland, yeah, that you spend all this money ha ten in ten episodes. Isn't I think they are made by over assets and realities, things yeah special affair.
The whole thing Jaso going back and re kind of imagining. It is a different thing and for them, the put it back on the earth. The same title same time, same characters but different thing. Why? I have to imagine that's a testament to how much they just want a show with you and Craig. We must really like you guys. I think, that's a pretty strike. Gold combination between you guys went right. When you told me you were doing the show your campaign, I think we were. I was like, oh my god, what Mary, Mary, I am so glad you guys are together. They probably want to salvage any version of that that they Maybe so I would if I ran up anything, maybe so I mean I think I think that that was always a thing in the show that really did work with those two characters together. Gap and working with Craig is so so fine and it's an exciting thing, so I think I think he I think that that was certainly
because I don't know if we would get the two of us together again. If you went away, you know I'd sure, ourself yeah. What's interesting is you know I've made a couple movies and in I've I've made this mistake. Why I'll probably continue to make it again and again, which is, I have my own particular interests right. I have a certain recipe of things I like I like self, help. Ah I like sobriety, I loved dirt bikes Nguyen off road cars. And re. Seeing your hand on talking about your childhood. Those in your movie still write what what would so wild well like, let's say, hit and run as they set out This movie actually convince myself but this is amazing: it'll attract both people who love loved yeah and who have comparable these, but the end result is actually the people who live, love story, see all these cars. They want nothing to do with the movie
Karla, receive like an opening, see what a meat argue sweet to Christian and they want nothing new. It is so I weirdly alienate both audiences, but in the prep of it all again, I don't regret any limit could, ultimately, all you can do is make the movie or show you want to see. You are yourself, so that's all you can do you would guess. What can you do? That's true, but I will say that with hidden run. For me, it was a perfect combination of those two things because for me it was like one of those old James gang their movie. You remember tank that movie tank now use gardener and the compromise. Now all are In writing? I knew I do. I remember the Ivy Hs cover at De Rossa, VHF thing or a Bert rounds they're sitting on a tank right yeah. He has to get a tank out of they. Some sort of facility is just an excuse to get James our nerd saying funny. She asked in a tank or Bert, Reynolds move We are all of his, but it had this review
very real beating heart at the centre of it and people. You really cared about you care about you and Christians relationship like you needed this thing to survive, but you kept messing up, but can you girls say? Oh god, I'm so ratios we're we keep to a minimum. So if we, when you can sell the store owning somebody, so I think they did you do the at that. There was a perfect combination of those because I love watching carcases, but its carcases aren't fine unless you care about the people in the car. Well, that's that's kind of my take on it. You know like smoking ban, in which four He is the all time greatest scar chase move you get time. You know, you're watching Burton Sally fall in love. I was one of the greatest Para maize in Hollywood history and then you know on in scream. They had all this. You know business and are there were great in her
we're together? You have just watch them forever, so yeah also you know between but Reynolds and the snow man Jerry Reed, Who is this? I mean you know anything about it at the beginning that movie he goes and gets him on a bad. He takes him away from his wife and won't you see there is like snow man who followed the bandit anyway, you're in that's kind of the dream. Friendship or all after yeah I can just nudge you in your bed and go back dessert, you're He is come with me on this adventure and let's do was no filmy. I exaggerate that's great. Instead, we just made on your centre in my attic are right, wherever, like you know, a couple of hours over three months yeah, but you can in prep of things. You can definitely convince yourself. Also fuck x files, all these people young, bad and then people love commenting in Austria, Communism, gonna Qana, Agri
in all these audiences, but in weirdly you can end up kind of splitting. Yes, I think of it. Selfishly. I thought when I said it's like twilight, zone and midnight ranges assuming everyone loved the things about Twilight Zone at midnight round? Yes, maybe they haven't seen twilight zone. Maybe I don't care about midnight Rhonda, but I think that that's just a common language and everyone loves it as much as me when you say that when they run into other donor, been they runnin, stranger things that particular tone is ray. There's no is raising them, but you could. You could also miss diagnose. The reaction is, when you say, run. I go. I smile ya know anything. I lay on a very happy about that too. Yet that doesn't mean I know how to match the things of generational. Physically said, Chauvelin ICE Cream and increases penal buttercups. I like, above that they're gonna go well together right by the way that sounds too late,
They are going you, I usually bad example chocolate ice Zippo lighter was that it is much better side. No, I think it's safe to say that seventy percent of pitches in Hollywood, be them tv or film reference midnight, yeah right. That goes to. I myself have said it selling stuff. Alot, isn't funny that that we all hold that movie midnight run on this pedestal. Just the high water mark of what a buddy action found could be Now it is those who are only the Zulu Yos and networks have bought dozens and dozens and dozens and dozens of projects that that had that is the template. Yet I have not seen midnight run sense enough, nothing that good yeah. I just can't think of it again you get into like ok, maybe the script was perfect, but then what what fucking, weird pairing. You don't even know that Deniro and saves nationals, Grove, yeah growth and are going to have that kind of symmetry. I now it's such a great parent and
Martin breast clearly backed off and gave them room. I mean I'm sure he was a great facilitator, but also what whatever dance. That was that he did to let those two guys have that much magic because they were at each other. Yes, but they loved. The is a love story. It was in it. Weirdly fits the paradigm, of the black White Comedy movie, that followed it like a lethal weapon and all of them because they did not Architects were so drastically different, yet it was really fund a watch. Yes, yeah yeah, it's just a perfect movie, but it's also in the relationship is incredibly grounded, but the movie also has this language to it. That's heightens legal right out of the gate, even as the opening credits are rolling, they establish like it
the next ninety minutes. Whenever someone gets punched in the face, they are outcome on your body. Can ask us what a great void but the other world they energetic. They tell you with the physics of this world right out of again right away. I am you just you like. Ok, I did then hit run. I plunged Rosa Mama called and I am able to renew rural or remove his court. Some position it into the car and everything's good sure. When was the last time you anything here. It's your it's in your outcome convenient our three or even better, like three minute randomize actually Zaparos among comes do justice and fruitful. Yes, yes, yes, yes, it several times in this house where I grew up and I've even lost consciousness for a second but I've You have never going to like five minutes later. You have your irish I'll break if you're out for that long, it is a serious problem as an ambulance NASA of urine yearning career pet scanner. What Verde during quick key area you have a view
a good memory for all these movies. We watch now kid when you are you're from Santa Cruz and that's it. Research fee hit me right now, mushrooms. Graham big redwood tree and is beautiful, pass fail at the university I think I'll. Have you been up there? I, when I went there when I was probably twenty five in a bar, one pound of mushrooms yeah with my buddy, you oughta mush itself, much more mushrooms and you think it's gonna be it was too all gallon size, it black buyer mushrooms. It was so much mushrooms and he and I Aaron, and I ain't half of them and when we sold half in Michigan and God bless him, he drove cross country with this gallon sized bag of mushrooms drove them from Santa Cruz DE mission. Well. No, he and I drove from Santa Cruz, backed ally. We took a bunch of em and then he took a gallon bag back to Michigan insult those? And we made out like a bandit financially when we
the twenty five annoyed. I you know, I think we cleared like sixteen hundred bucks from these and then had free mushrooms for two years. Amazing. I found that it's not a good idea for me to have a gowns is it black pegging, mushrooms and my freeze area, while also a functioning alcoholic is invariably at midnight. I thought it was a great idea. Some. So there is a few drinks and you know why you don't make this girl. You know what we should do right now. Instead of going to bed, It was a bad idea, but but but I had some good time, but any Were you surf person? Did you follow the stereotype of Santa Cruz kid? not really. I never really really serve die. I got into school Boarding for awhile misery drawn on the beast Schroeder, yeah me on wet sand right as the water is pulling back into the ocean and there is that thin layer of water. Still on the sand. Hydro point: you
are you can hide your plane across that any kind of go off into the smaller waves? The it's really fine and its, I think a mixture of seeing jaws at a young age and being intimidated by the servers, gives the sawhorse tsar it's pretty serious to right, yeah, yeah you're. It's like the football players in Friday, night lights, yeah, small town surfing. As the yeah. There's even like little surf gangs of my right, oh yeah, there's like air breaks, you can, you can and can't go on or it your ass, be. Yes, the skin boarding think happens later. I, as a kid growing up, I was just into watching tv comic books and going to them. Movies. I we just go to the movies You gonna go at like you know, eleven a m and just go to the multiplex in town had four screens, which is like the bigger. I owe you go see every sure yeah I was just in the movies and and dear dear the youngest of three, the idea and the were you
older, siblings, also in the movies not as much by they definitely kind of influenced what I first my brother really got me in the music and early on my sister com pointed meta. What cool movies were and then my brother and I got discover comedy together, but I was the one that dove headfirst into it you gonna break the model in my town. The third youngest was always in saying just real raise. Yes, I got progressively crazier because they were in boiling now because there are competing with you, people, older than rights of their jumping off the dresser than that you know the one year old does so in my experience. The third almost always budget craze. I hate when I learned my stereotypes, don't hold up all highly glad. He did that
is now you say, that's a real! That's really interesting that I notice that no, but I think it's a cultural thing. May probably it was most evident in skateboarding and snow morning, which is what I did as a kid and I know is a few different sets of brothers and the younger the second. All this one was always at all, while he's actually much better than the old brother fearless, and then the third woman come out of nowhere and was you know insane just taking risks as all many rats. He s terrifying to what s interesting. I, a bit of a risk mistake about everybody is five years older than me, and I was competing with him all the time. So I was good at skateboarding. Junior high? While I was still competing with him, but then away. I no longer was doing, and I was never really good at anything after that. Maybe it's there My brother was a computer guy. There we go, and so it was in about going out and doing crazy shit. He was like on his apple to E. Aha right.
Einstein writing little programmes, your guys doing, jumping Jack and yeah yeah totally my far. Nor would we eat a trillion: tides egg in complaint castle, walls, step three four hours, but at any point, why, while you're on deep diving at the Cineplex yet safe to assume, who are stealing those next three movies right, you're, just paying for that? First one of car here, of course, ever consider making rested she now that you're flush yeah I go after him manage now that you mention it. I should probably had on a drop of your butt oh yeah movies back then were like a matinee was like two dollars, so I've gotta o them at least yet a did. You have friends that you went. There was yeah, I mean I went starting in the like six grades through of either like a three year
third phase. I got chubby aha, and so I could well grade sixth grade, and so it carried me through junior. I had a rough time. Do is a tough one yeah my social Standing was real, the interrupted and and really got kind of sidelines. Therefore, a couple years gives right: you're, the shabby kid Andy. You know Oh it's just that and they weren't surfing wasn't survey morning that was, I was as well as trying his back to the future of ours. United Toyota, pickup truck Netscape or but I was never, never really get the hang of it. I was never particularly good on escape warden, whom you you're pretty good on escape, or I was at that time. Maybe I got it. I was around in the arab world started. Getting insane were like a big thing to do as they get to feed air on a half bite, but then quickly it became the mic twist and lips
I gotta make fifty seed of air- and I just Amelia was like its offer me. I don't have the right yeah. You know really scary, always raw meat. But when I was a kid like my best buddy when I was a little kid Camper Bates, his sister was Keith Meeks Girlfriend Keith me had the slasher skateboard, your Marianna Outer High, absolutely and rob raw scarp and all I used to go to those parties. When I was like twelve and see all those. Guys on the half by yeah there's a very popular skateboard brand, Santa Cruz DE I assume was made. Yeah and what was the? What was the skateboard magazine, our Trans worlds, gay or thrasher Thrasher YE hours, it yeah all the guys that were in thrasher We see them, that's pretty wild. I appear as a kid in Michigan that was your basically in the EP, the centre of where I would have killed Ray of Ben right, but then I probably would have been just what I've never been at the centre.
With you, you also movies it at. You probably would have gotten up on the half pipe and probably done some damage. Vienna yourself, yes, I would have. I would have felt for better or worse than the big motivator from me. Most in my life is you're a fucking coward voice in my head, going you little asking coward you now he has itself loathing hatred that got to do. Most of the things I've done. I don't think I've ever done. One thing out of lover: I looked at him, that'll be fun. I thought your everyone here thinks you're such a coward. If you don't do it, so that's pushed you to make. So really bad decision. Absolutely I've had surgeries, and am I always heard at forty three on every where it is that come from? I think again competing with someone five years older than me at all times. I think by comparison I felt like I couldn't do a thing
Are you that he was fearless in that? I wasn't mind you ve comparatively the kids, my age, I was, they thought I was fuels, but it was all a comparison scale and I've he was. You know Thirteen when I was a yard, Socio Garrett right yeah, we fought every single day. We fought every single day. So I finally one you we never thought again, coincidentally Jill, you really hurt him, I well, I didn't even am I just one was obvious that those days were over of him and having the upper hand, are you guys close now we are ya, yeah, but we we definitely had a lot of growing pains because of that gap it. So it's such a big gap. I see these brothers in jails. Him do you know the EVA Brothers, the musician yeah yeah using the documentary about them on our ideals TA, my god, I really recommended, if you wanted to hear yourself direct that he did
yeah. He and someone else, so I don't really know who direct what, but they are, you know the very close in age and they were best buddies. Their whole life in their still best buddies and it seems very effortless, Ria, whereas there like next each other. They write all their songs together. It's very the idea looking dreamy adds that's what I want for my son and my daughter and there they are so another at each other's throats. So often makes me sad, and I want lumber those like best friend tat. They might grow into yeah. I that's yeah, I mean all brothers and sisters, it nine and eleven. Of course, they're gonna, that's what age there now yeah things school can can help in ways, because the kind I have to become a united front are sometimes it's advantageous in that they feel the safety of having someone who will really die for them, even if they are like EM and I had the homage others, your brother five years. We is young
so you had a similar measures. The time you don't want your round, but then the originally he did and then I can be of use aim right. It did end when I finally hurt him ok I remember exactly where we were never happened again: Yahoo, older you, I must have been like twelve or thirteen or something- and he was eighteen- he is separate. You know it must have been even earlier than that. I can't imagine he was doing it. Did you lose a weapon, as that would turn the rate at which I cut is a order aorta, No, it was a if I must have been like ten or eleven whatever it was. I heard him and I felt horrible awe and he I think it was just a kind of o awake.
Like, oh wow. This is easy to see why do yeah well might have had a very clear rule, which was we were allowed to fight from sun up to Sundown. If that's what we want to be out, you are not allowed to hit my face. Ah, if you hit each other in the face, then then you're gonna fight him yeah, which was an appealing now either also known as if we got all. That is a shift when it goes to the face. Yes, it's different. Oh you known, eight talk yeah, so neat talk That's a great examples, others that there are three brothers and then marshals, the youngest in he's the craziest like no marshals, the youngest he's he's the craziest may use them clobber each other in the face
that presently was stuck labour yak constantly and they were so close tat. It was like a battle royal. Why so you go to the talks and just be like wholly highlights either because they are banning around half of the other, their killing each other, but it was at what point that you're watching movies, that do you think I think I wanna try to do this really early on. Who is I can we really remember ever thinking I would or wanted to do anything else, but it was a long time until I shared with anyone zoos, it kind of an embarrassing yeah. Thanks to think that's what you get you. You know it was probably readers of the lost dark witches. When I was like nine years old, it was like. Oh I mean. Why would you want to do anything, but there the that movie really blew my mind. Aha,
the comedy of it and that the other feelings in that movie yeah. I still watch it a couple targets incredible. It's it's incredible. Its both like it brings me join. It brings me deep depression because it's so flawlessly aid in You tell yourself, I wonder if I had done him on a time and that that budget knows actors, but I know in my heart no, I couldn't do it such a unique, its gift. Viewed as early as together yards incredible itself on every single, even I mean that movie is just it doesn't. Stop one of my buried. Sequences is the fist fight with the airplane. The errant airplane, that's kind of movie on the walls got up in the thing, the ball guy, who he clearly will never be. Yes, the gas, Zoran fire that coming for them with a lot of things, happened yet anyway is getting his asked.
Yeah, how is he gonna get out of this? The propeller kills the guy that's taking care of, but she stuck in the fucking thing and the gases, the gases on foot he's still got two things in listening to her as a rare stakes on stakes eyes, I'm so you were what age you expressed here. Did you say your parents, your brains, about two teachers? Neither are you really
Another stuff. I made a rule myself that I only know the beginning again at force you to tell me really nice yeah they're, both teachers. I remember the specific moment and it was when River Phoenix was nominated for running on empty, which I don't know the exact yours pretty like eighty seven. So I was in high school. I thank or junior high or something- and I remember it was either watching the Oscars or something something I was watching. I had my own. Very only tv in the house was a five inch, black and white that I added my room, but I remember watching it and my telling my mom like I think I can do that because I was already like doing plays in style school, but I in high school yeah or whenever this was I yeah now, and I remember telling her that's. I think I can really women Academy award
That is exactly how that story. Ass you got both could be is gorgeous is river yes and Where did I say mom. I will look in act like hidden verse, shortly I am going to achieve, and what was her respond immediately like, of course again there are always really supportive, but also having no idea what it is. Yelled, rowing, where an age from are they from California there from Santa Cruz, both obey aren't ya. That is very peculiar to the out so you're like second or third or fourth generations.
A career they're both of their logging. While his you know whether my my my my dad moved to Santa Cruz from Colorado he's not from he was like twelve, we move from Brush Creek Colorado is dad, was a rancher and they moved out to Santa Cruz to meet up with some other family out. Their cause, dad was sick. The soul, the ranch. Although we still have this industry there I mean getting high Oriana manicurist, although we could get a Santa Cruz like Border tourism sponsor out of this. Yet we keep it positive Santa Cruz. Is my mom side, a family sicilian, and so there is a lot of fish lot of seafood industry up in the San Francisco of fish
de Nord or trading in cash. I believe trading of ash. If I'm not mistaken, well, groomed fish, yes and then her dad was a podiatrist in Santa Cruz use in this world war two as podiatrist and opened a practice there, but I think they started up in San Francisco and I'll die. My dad's mother was a teacher and she moved to sank, restore working there, so they both ended up that my mother grub there. My dad ended up yeah, ok, so so so your mom's says you can do that. But again she doesn't really have any sense in it. She. I assume knows that colleges natural your major in that. Did they try to get you out of that? You know again, it was. I can be an actor. I wasn't It worthing. We aren't you loud and clear your death, it's ridiculous lot! We well by the way I was I was at home, going it could be a member rentals who is the biggest boss.
There are seven out of ten years in a row. Nevermind duplicated is today in today's dollars. Cannonball run would have made like seven hundred million dollars. Something like eyes so success. I have to amend the big big success was the first smoking in the man. Be that as no on yeah, and I think it was a third biggest move all of that year and jobs, who's that years, while it may like a hundred and eight million and seventy seven on again, these Monica Monica fact checks us by the West. With the end of this show the correct ever get erroneous thing we survive. It was on you know, seven hundred screens or something the anomaly and make a hundred million, which is worth whatever now and there is no screens and but it's on the seven hundred screens for a year and a half or yes, yes, probably ran and ran and remember going to see e t after Does it excited yeah, yeah yeah? We have done that in the recent history was maybe like, I feel like avatar win, win went for maybe I almost.
Year, but other than that has for a long time have just doesn't happen now now, but always yeah. That's who I was trying to be, which is eager my uncle, but that is only all. I was growing up. My Harrison floored like this early matter. Now it's really fun, in fact the people I interviewed so far too here who, who there nor to her with the because none of us really of anywhere near that, but but but in trying to do that, you can find your own lane with your is interesting for some, but you went to college why went to acting score? I you know my wine real regret is. I was so focused on. You know, I'm just gonna finish. I swore and I'm just gonna go and you know be an actor. I fantasies of n y you because I was really in despair. Lee AHA dressed like him. I had better go to high school and directed ways with like really Genetic lighting like you, used to do and let the right things
What's his signature move with a dolly? Does I sit on the reverse zoom in Nepal out or some crazy yeah that started after that started with more better blues, and he got it- you are a real student of we. I love my god. He was ever its vitally joint. You know. Do the right thing, of course, is his real masterpiece in it's perfect. I haven't seen in a while, but it is a perfect movie. I think that a sentimental favorite for me as Crook Land but Malcolm X, I saw a few years ago, that is a lucky great move, That is a great yeah. I loved it and I didn't know anything about Malcolm X. You I saw it. I only had been given the kind of cultural tee got him in my area, which was you we like Martin Luther King, he and non violence, Malcolm access bag. Z list, violent yeah, of course I I was complete
we now move to the whole thing, and I saw them will mean a made me love him. Yes, that is real testament Armenian going wire where they make in a movie about the guy who is violent. It was in because culturally at that, remember the hats and always has viewed yonder watching it. White Amerika was very scared. Yes, yes watching it twenty years later away from all of that, and just as a movie, its impressive right, really terrific movie, but I also I love die in it man, that's what am I yet as a really cool movie up for ice movie right after I really good, and what? What is it about spike? Lady? You think they were you longing for some kind of. I don't know what the right word. That's not offensive is
What was their something exotic about that world that, yes, so foreign to Santa Cruz. That is appealing Ankara's very white and did you like HEP up? I was never that India Hip Hop other hat. Do the right thing got me into public enemy and got me rise way more in they have pop than I am and was kind of open. My open me up to that hip hop to music, but also of me up to a black culture and an really kind of how Whitworth Black alter was in nineteen, eighty nine and how you know where, where they were at that, I may, I think it's a really good kind of Jack.
On how people were feeling at that moment. Yeah. You know yak as at that time a my what I'm seeing film on television, with the exception of a couple great television, shows at celebrated black culture you're, seeing a pretty one dimensional take on it in its all crime. It's all this, but yeah. I remember watching. Do the right thing in feeling about it. The way I feel it I felt about Paris, which is like. Oh this places. Colorful like there is some oh yeah life happening here. It's not stare. And its messy, but it's your Zob tuna beauty and mad and yeah yeah. I was pretty eye opening. I think another thing about him that really guy have open me up to and made me really start paying attention to film making was, like you said, it's a big colorful war. God, it's a really impressionistic dear old, and you get connected to these characters. There really like junk Hollow Esposito, characterised this big
brash guy and sow and John to Thorough and those eyes hurl amazing, yeah, retreating and soon, but then also spike in it. Sal Sal, SAM Samuel, Jackson's, Samuel Johnson, is the deed. When his first things yap, it's this big colorful worldview become connected. It's like a second. You know. Traipsing through it kind of Disney, were annually beautiful and then its upset. It gets really upsetting and there's some big questions. Like a Basque, we out the whole thing yeah, it's a great great movie. Indeed, you feel like I had this so I live on the perimeter of Detroit. Many moved downtown to try to a certain point: and I just had this total affinity for that culture are right or wrong. I don't know, but I have I hadn't affinity and then it is a little bit of sadness that I was never going to be involved in that light,
You're never gonna be involved in the struggle of that, not even the store just like that. The judge of that life, the color you're talking about the vibrancy, all that the characters the like over the top expressed while whose things I just thought wow, whom does for us training. I want you know, included in matter embraced in that yes and then to a fault. I think I've I've I've tried to be apart by his that, maybe You know what a part of wider part of that culture of latter alter, I mean I never like say, drew. I didn't, have a Malcolm x hat you Am I gonna Yoyo Africa, the leather Africa while case no a mighty good, that's his wrath by God. Nothing else out of you, the met you had. What was that wars that clothing coming? Try colors, something that that had it was the three stripes
arguing about. I nose to spite Lee had a company, forty acres in a mule rights, and they even a shot? I had a network, they did and I went into an area was it was pretty close to the ground. So yes, yet again between rehearsal, I would like wandered on that street. I went in there, it was in and I was always depress. It was never full yeah. I can cause again you have this idea of all this stuff right when you, when you're on the outside, I'm in Michigan your in Santa Cruz, Ya like to me once you're spitefully, everything is downhill from there and I mean down here, like you put it neutral and allied into everything. So my assumption is if he starts a store boy, there is a line not are, and then I went in there my own its. Subject to all the realities. Many retail set forth. There's that these gimmicks. It's only so much demand for a forty acres in a middle baseball yazzi, as in the Bible bottom right bottom and amounts Whenever I never had enough money to buy one. I wanted one at one. This would be a group
see. If I was Jimmy, came our mutual friend. I would store this in my head. In this Christmas you'd get, I would find on Ebay a sweatshirt in a hat now get it for you, I will forget in three hours, then, is that that is a key moment. Isn't it? Oh, my god, it's you. Almost aggressively generous. I told him that it's it's like there's a point which is, I feel bad the gifts. Yes, oh thoughtful, so incredibly thoughtful! It's! It's me can again can leave you feeling nothing, but less than o inevitable, every single time I so You you, you want to go to him. Are you but you didn't go to him? No, I don't have the grades out, that's where I was saying as it. My regret is really not getting the grades in, in high school. If I went one idea that would have been a really great seen for you
from what I know about you, just New York to be under the leave Santa Cruz and go to New York City items. You likely used to publish a journal with each of his films journal. He took throughout the making of the founder and she's gotTA. Have it and school days it was a lot of, and why you in there that's where he went to school, so I like, and why use thoughts go? I didn't have the great, so I would have had delay go to Junior College, and so I went to an acting school that didn't require about age Pierre down here and away. Have you met spike me? No? Are you haven't now? Can I feel like we should make this house as well. I will ya a means to my knowledge. You would only need to buy a ticket at a next game. Maybe so Maybe that's the way to do it. Another thing I would do if I were a camel vigour what is season tickets honoured by the seat? Next to it? The time your New York Christian has said, camel she's surprised you, man,
so as a young marred my hand more. I was really it was that I surreal moment for you truly, I mean that's. That's one of those moments where you don't know, you know when you are truly surprised, awe and yes, you I stood, everything involved were excited young time continue, it was it was. It was pretty amazing get in. Sure you you have the same thing I do, which is you have this crazy privilege of meaning a ton of these people? They grew up idolizing. Not but but quickly you realise all are people Nanda brush her teeth in their body on their diet, mean on the busy knew. The work of life is still there for them. It just gets a little less exciting itself. The few weeks hearings have had that delivered in what I thought the twelve year old me would be like was I'm getting to be on Letterman the first I'm in? and I really it was just in my head- going- stop smiling like plugin here,
the time for this because I was just it was beyond surreal to me and I'll be a foot from his fucking. Face lighted stared at them, thousands of ours and infanticide- about him interviewing me I and all the Senate in and when you get in those situations, and I wonder when you were in the more camel situation, you got a really put put your ego and rains because for me I start nine wait if I will This whole thing is that how life works is. Is this the reality? Did I somehow make this money recipient of a ton of good luck, or did I did? I did I forced this to happen. Very confusing, right, you're gonna be able to enjoy it and experiences and yet also raining her eager. For me, that's the problem or I'll start thinking that I've like pulled the right lovers in the universe, tat. The Letterman thing was the same for me, but that's different, because you're on there did you want you, you can't believe it's happening.
But you also like I have to put that aside. As I have to try and you haven't, you have to do yeah. I want an funny, or I want him to think wanna- have me back of source yeah, but a Letterman was the same. For me, it was literally half of why I wanted to do this in the first place. Was this it on his did, you did you dont worry that just now house next Gordo has raised, as I always say, a dingy le. Did you used to sit on a couch and pretend you were there with Letterman when you are like a kid, I want an act out like this work of it. It was mostly while I was brushing my hair in the mirror and high school. I would like think of a question he asked me and then I think of a really funny response to here, and there yeah I was. It was a big preoccupation of my again in another,
time I had no desire per se to be an actor. Some not quite sure what I thought he was going to interview me about. I agree and I have a problem. I probably was more focus. I mean a race car driver. I thought maybe I'll write Owens brazen illiteracy does. I knew I wanted to talk to him and have him ask me questions, because that way, a sign not only of success but of a particular kind of sixty day. You not only you'd achieves ending, but you had done something else right to earn that spy next to Travis Letter. That's true cuz! You can be an actor who's working and that doesn't necessarily mean you're. Going to my case. The weird reason I got to be until I got on very early while punch was airing like it yeah. I should have been a guest on the show, but I had also done two episodes of Bonnie Hunt Show and I played two different characters like a week. Part wake her talk. Shooting at I sit come right. Bunny I had a sick common. I played to drastically. Do I play a video director, one on one episode
Just two weeks later, I played a plastic surgeon rate about her show I just didn't matter yeah and he got a bang out of that and he liked the plastic surgery episode and said. I want to have this kid on citizens, rights weird, lock that all that happened there. I couldn't got Andras from being on Pontiac the all these other stars had to align yeah. He was a bit huge, ran a body haunt. They were friends, so he was into that's even cool. He was into what you did yes and in fact, like that, the fact that I was shall punk. That was a little bit of a phenomenon, but again not on his radar. He didn't even know about that nor care about it. We right at the end.
We had nothing to do with pot. It was all about an episode haired six months before there is really nothing from our that's really who got so again, no but a whole bunch of Sarandib tee all and they now the really cool yeah. So during acting schooling and quickly get an agent and start auditioning in in in no it was impasse. Edina and I didn't have a car I so Hollywood was like mass well of Ben. You know in the city I like, I was just there doing that and then I use it to your school and I graduated in and then moved here when I be right in assuming that you were aiming initially to be a dramatic actor. Yes right for sure. Obviously, if you're you're in love with River Phoenix, yet you're thinking yeah, I was three serious he's on the verse. Guy owes obsessed with river again
Like he's like again, I wasn't super in the movies and in the in the like movie making aspect, but he was one of the few people that see any movie. He was in or rent any move ahead of him and it was cage and a cup of people. I would you see anything like my own private, Idaho. I would it. As an Israeli into those type of movies, but because River Phoenix was in an hour, I had to see ya and stand by me with my real were found over them yeah and that movie really cause. I was that age of those guys when they arise out? Did you feel like an outcast feel like they re ire story, because I was that was during that light,
Maybe you are too area Jerry Economy, Orange Aerial, Conniston character and awe and having like a couple tight friends, but not really being a part of any social Strata school, ah high. Now so that movie, you was a big big deal, ants moods. Anyone tobacco is completely by yourself, go with a friend right yeah. Did you make friends? There quickly did you there is his great. It was really fine and an eye. You found your tribe yeah, which people can do on the internet now, but we gonna do people realise that you had to actually go and friend for years standard idea at the grocery store and is hope he saw another key with unexploited t shirt on yeah. But you aren't, you gonna see that yet it was its heart. It was hard to yeah that so now you're in enacting schooling. Yet these are all people with a similar passion in here yeah, maybe if I say nerdy yeah, I guess so, but there again at acting school. It's like oh, these people are all,
nerds they're all into this stuff like I have to feel we're not any of this. Our is, there is great rise, gray, young, and so I kind of dove in really excelled. Therein did well and really worked my ass off. Just do. I realise that he's dying players in acting in there's a dead dance movement, classes, voice and diction. It's a whole thing here, and it was great. I loved I'm just soaked at all. You are an embarrassed when you are doing these exercises like now act like a gorilla now it was. I also asked earlier banana now. I you know all that stuff, it's embarrassing when you're doing it in high school and then there's the job taking hunting large crowd, but there it's like you're, all drownded. Find the banana better. The rights that are you re right. So I
tabled a kind of let my freak flag flying I guess and gun of indulgence. And did you do any are normally while you were there? Did you meet a laser yeah and you know I was really in the committee as a kid to I don't know why, and I never like I had to do over again I was gone and after school I would have gone and tried to introduce groundlings, like you do Are you see me? You see me or something like that, but I mean I wasn't even around yet I was so long ago, but something like that, I think that's a real will talk about finding your tribe, like that is a or not only a great groundlings. You see those aren't just great places, but the people that are there, yes, lovely in there.
Where all the freak in our tat we found each other ass, was her knees citing and it was, as you say, it was really competitive, which was healthy because yeah, the groundlings in particular that the the workload was was was great. If you wanted to have success there, you know you had to write six catches a week and put them up on Wednesday, and then me now, if you're super lucky to got under the show on Sunday and yes, you just had to be really proof prolific than it did teach above all things, just a discipline you are going to have to have if you wanted to do this and which is great cuz, I think when they teach you that discipline at school, I was also going to college. It didn't seem to apply to anything, I like to read these securities papers on number: do this in real life or whatever, but going up to perform in front of an audience? Yes again, that's real! I have to make this afternoon
something of this in the buggy about that. You, like your saying with your shower, there's, really no one to point the finger at and it's a great way to be able to get on with yourself in a hurry. Yeah he's as upset a bunch, also sketches I put up every single week for a year, I thought were equally yes and as it turns out on the stage about twenty, Fiber sentenced of, I think there is a great it is a great, is broadly appealing short right, but will you know now know that they all the same to me see, I think, that's a key to do anyway. That's really great that you were forced to create that much that volume ever hike that it That's huge yeah in some people didn't you know some people were so gifted somewhat were some, so we were so good at impersonation and characters that they they could have a great show just beginning cast and other people I wasn't that great of a performer. I was like a fine performers, so I really generate my own shit. If I want to be on stage and then also I reckon
eyes: oh, no one's making, video staffing, others tvs in the corners of this, this audience where the theatre and no one's really doing that. So I'm going to do that, cuz, no one's you and it yet and then, for I could sneak in a couple more sketches that were helpful. While we were changing outfits and what not and then I kind of got into it like shooting, stuff and editing seven with the goal- selfishly I'm just getting more airtime. You wanna, get that's what that's what you're doing there ya go for it, but you know what this is. He was come up a few times already, which is, I think, is really. I hesitate insane advice, but to have flexibility with your identity is super beneficial and pursue right because you were going to school to be River Phoenix and then you found maybe I'm wrong. I don't really know this from the outside. Looking at you found the bulk of your success in you.
Comedy right, and is you and you have to be open to that yeah road? For me, it took like fifteen years because it wasn't tell step brothers with that guy, just as a flu total fluke that I entered that comedy world. You know, I didn't even know that I could do it. I didn't know if I could improvise or not as it turns out at the time. I really couldn't and I figure it out, but that was when I was like. Oh my god. This is Fine, he ass they. What makes you such a great meaning in my opinion, is you're you're approaching it like a dramatic actor, whereas my favorite kind of coming, but by the way this is where our past cross of ever brought this up to you, but step brothers. He knows about, so I had signed with the manager I never had I signed with one. That was great, with the hopes that I could be put in these other comedies with actors. I love like welfare yeah
Incel, one that seemed like a slam. Dunk was going to be step. Brother huh and I went met on it and I audition for it, and I thought, while I have a really good chance at this, and then you got it oh man and I didn't know we were at. I want, of course, of I start, of course, by Goin who the FUCK am Scott. I hate our scottish. I wanna get this manager all kinds of thoughts and then eyes I go and see. Tat brother in this is one of those who, at this happened a few times in my life, where I go and I'm expecting point on everything you did wrong. I hate you and they really should the bet on this case seen Georgia and I, with in three sentences. I love you and I go. Oh my God disguise so much better than I would have been in this role and they made the right decision and none of it had anything to do with me and I think they got this guy. He cares about what the other one was, the other. What the other actor who were, who got a job
I have dozens of eager to want it was gonna go to who was in it. James magazines, makeover right so gonna be the movie and then he had some kind of scheduling thing and then he was not going to the movies. So I met with tee more the guy directed it. He really liked me. We actually business affairs called. I am about to do what which was boy my anxiety, not on a level to get that kind of movie, but for whatever reason, Timor like me, it is what a crazy opportune It was gonna, be for me here and then his schedule then opened up somehow and then they had to say sorry James now available at this one I dont know James Machabeus. I haven't even looked up a pitcher of em. I just know that this is my art Emma says. Yes, and then I go see the African Movie Alaskan Scotland. Yes, I'm watching Laskin, Scotland, they don't know that that's James MAC, voice, and I must lean over fifteen times said person I'm seeing a movie with going. This guy is a revelation in disguise. Revelation I actually
get my phone out some like I'm right down his name it that when the credits come so I can see everything is ample, comes up and start taking James Macroeconomic, oh, my goodness. I wouldn't ten of media replaces Catholic again made they made them. Right decision and I welcome these one of my favorite actors alike, great. Can you think of one that you really were loud enough funny enough? I remember without a paddle coming out and being like, that is like the kind of comedy that they don't make any more and Dax Shepherd does I deserve to creating a big comedy mythology assure all in again it he hasn't been around as long as I am doing guess spots on Nypd Blue for engineers or whatever, and then
aside and news. A similar thing is like a wolf. I would never be able to do. That's like that's hilarious, but then also I audition. There's a thorough, oh, you did and because Rowan I back and like ninety three. Ninety four ninety five lived in the same kind of shit, hole building. Aha Franklin Avenue: he was a couple floors above me in factors in establishing shot of that building in swingers, and you can see a bed sheep in the window, which is my curtain, o re. Ah, so I I got him knew him back then, and still I was like a right. Oh audition for John here this Roy neighbour yeah, awe and we'll talk about the good old days and then I'll get this awesome part in a thorough and then you you didn't it s dead yeah. I got it for her
But again I would never have been able to pull back off like like you did. I actually that movies terrific, like AIDS is a great movie, hides weirdly. It's probably the best fail. My men like that good. Tangibly like three decades from now me. I really I mean it's so good. He idealism fine. It was very misleading to me because I had been in without a powder which again said this before, and I couldn't be more grateful for that movies. Don't get me wrong a as you point out I didn't. I deserve that, to my mind a little bit it. I did because I had been an alley for ten years trying, but yet just such a reality deserve that's something jealous accuracy out, but but but I do it occurred to me at the time by what they don't Lee roles and move on these two people have been ten up aid. Episodes of a fuckin and tv show, so I knew that. But but when we got there, we took it incredibly
curious millions, very endearing. How serious we took a week. We thought- and I have said on a we talked about without we're making diner in the woods. I received no, we saw we realise others use much younger than which, by the way, they were right to do so good. They didn't. Let us edit the movie, but that We made a ton of money YAP for very little money. That was my only experience in movies so far, and then I go duessa thorough and I see that movie my holy fuck opposite parents is twenty times better than I could have ever known by being on the effects and everything the way John did it now I start my logos, bananas and I might well have without a paddle made this amount, that good of a movie then that there is going to make a couple of billion die. And I am then expecting that to happen, and therefore, as luck just how's it, it doesn't make any money, you never know
so crazy. So weird you finally stop trying to figure it out, which is the freedom of essentially that here too yeah that's. I had no idea that we cross, but then one has written but you before you got here, you know, are in the same movie really Beyond that, I had no idea, but we are both in a movie called hair shirt that was originally here's your yes, but was then called to smooth when it release those Canadian produced. Yes, were you in that We I was I soon your role is something great. Like guy, our in my role as vomiting or at a part. That's my first credit. I don't think I ever saw the whole movie yeah de Paris of populist. That's all he. I went acting school with. Oh, you did ass a diner net, yes, Dean, Paris, I think he's drop the goblin or maybe you brought it back, but there was a period where Dean Para Yet when I was in school within those Justine Paris, oh then he brought about a barrier, and maybe it's gone now
we haven't seen it was wise, a terrific guy, yes to yes, you're in There- and I was in that so far he has- and I had no idea as a third thing and I couldn't have done it without a paddling without a pat all the movies. Terrific cheat there's a real story there. It's really about the friendship yet, and I love that they were trying to. There were doing that in one of those big movies disease pre hangover, three old school, yeah, yeah and now again now, I'm now I'm on the way other side of it, which is a mount tried to make movies and and now I can better appreciate what Brill accomplish, and I also can recognize how movies benefit or fail based on chemistry. But you just can't you can't figure it out like it either hit the lottery or you don't luck, the three of us just fucking love each other. I me we were having every bit as much fun in real life. Is the characters in them
movie Moura and whereas in love and not just you just don't know if you're gonna get that. So all those things now I recognise like, while that was one of the better experience of ever having improperly will be the out. You know, that's that's a lucky lucky situation, You do step brothers and it comes out, makes a billion dollars, and then you are now I'm assuming getting thought of a lot more for comedies sort of I mean stepmother's is a weird thing. Like it came out, it made a lot of money, but it was also like Tropic Thunder Pineapple Express came out on both on either side of a right. It was and it we ve got a lead all it didn't. I didn't really get the fact or a boost or anything from stepmother's until it can have marinated in the culture a longer like Rome, video, shark, cable, that's that's! When it really
two continents are highly watch a movie yet, which is also hard to predict. Yes, sire. We just have a great great shelf life yeah, and I just showed it to my kids recently seen in years, and it is just so funny and just really great filmmaking to mimic, obviously MC eyes and he released filmmaker Also. I I realise this is really inappropriate its. I shouldn't you a nine year old yeah I've forgotten how how we profoundly its greater, where you were kind of feelings. You have why you're watching it with your kids is an embarrassing you or religious having a moment of light who this is it was fine as it is, is it was fine for them to see me be however, the eggs. I've seen you with your children, you just generally very kind nice wonderful day. I think you here. So we must get a bank they will.
There is a lot of praise starter here so so so Guy mean Honestly- and I am the biggest welfare of your by farm ivy report- that movie it's the least expected thing. It was so great yeah. I'm immensely proud to be to be an exact. Some of you, I would go scenes a hundred times a year and then a little like inside gossip. You know a lot of people in this town have bad reputations and they're they're kind of deserve. You invariably work with a ton, assholes bunny. I will feral is the guy cool and want him to be he's a perfect Sancho Human being he parties, but not to Malaysia. Here you know he everything is just right. In the moderate bulls, I had a kind person, any general is how right very curious. You know once she had no about you like here, really is a lovely regular, do YAP and just
prefer like really one of them. He delirious guys. I've ever been a movies like he's really like he's like belly, yeah laughs, always for me to know and a part of his recipe that people on our standards, but we are talking about is he is a living content. Creator- songs, not just there to say your lines he's not reliant on that. He is Sir he's in a sixty percent of his skill set is a writer. Yes, you know whether he's taking Penda paper ya, which is coming up a snuff yap making stuff. So I want to talk about the fact that you you went away, news decide. You want to create content and not just act near her layered that happen posts, step brothers or what Yait happens after that, because I kind of STAR Gazelle and then right. When stepmother's comes out, I start doing party down
with Christian was all we are rather had early on and agenda, and then she came back and season two as well, which was awesome so doing not with that group of people getting really close. With Marino and Martin STAR. We see just that whole Gran Hansen Ryan. I just ran into Ryan, led by uniting my favorite. Yes, Anna Lindh Earth, just the lovely I envy Funniest dude, uses source of LEO Fine, so we got really tied all of us and it was kind of why that was largely impromptu right. No, no! It's not no bow barely at all. Ok, I join and Bahman Dan Averaging Rob Thomas really wrote. Giant bomb wrote the bulk of it that those guys who have really were great, but it was ten alike. We never expected any Wendell
watch it goes on stars and at the time yeah. What is it really did matter where you work as people were streaming added? Rightly disfigured were doing this for ourselves. So there's something about that were was like this. This feels good. I don't give a shit if anyone who ass- that's not so, let's, yes, it's just make stuff. What that point, you really does. The sign of successes is, if you make the thing you want to watch videos right cause you're, not in it, for your expectations are no analysis through better. It had better make you guys happy and, I think also getting you know, Paul Sheer and seeing just how much output that guy has it was really inspiring yeah. I know if I ever told him that, but that really was a because we did profit like in between season and party. Doubt I went, did Parana three D. A high and lakes.
Monsieur Mercier, Jerry, O Connell, were in that and so just getting to know, Paul and watching just how busy he was with stuff. The key was creating making. There was, a real eye? Opener none! So I'm still not you know making stuff at the level that I want to be or should be, but it really is the most satisfying. That is the first thing, these The title sequences yeah. That was the first thing. This is brilliant. If you guys haven't seen at once what you call that a worrying given television history, their swift and where did we will find its on? You too, I mean it said in adult swam. It was on adult swam, but now they there they're all on Youtube. Therefore, episodes where we re create opening credit sequences from television shows from the eighties and a more
Documentary about the money of the inner incredibly accurate, so funny cause they're so well executed. We went to a lot of the original locations tried to find as much original la drove hours in and when I totally risk. Fact it about. It too is the had it existed purely for the the laugh that you're gonna get him that moment right because it was it a credible, undertaken Have you imagine we re way more work than you are expecting, rightly, and probably caused a bit to do that. I really don't have really have anything that super sustained Now it s And I love that makes me so finally, having like twenty one years is pointless and when something slides through the cracks like- and I can recognize this, just someone's love Further Yang. It's wonderful accurately.
Make any money doing or simultaneously now, adult swim gave us a decent budget to do something. That's again point listens to bed time, right right as hard as hell yeah. I was really hard, and so we stop doing it because it was so difficult and stress and then at the end of it, what do you have? How much content you up? Fifteen minutes each one? one of them, is like nine minutes long. Another ones like nineteen minutes, long they're all kind of different, but none are over. Like one thousand nine hundred and twenty right. So at the end you don't have any model. That's gonna answer no not sell at has anything. I absolutely love bath. Yeah,
but but I imagine that your success in executing that then than opens the door for more things yeah. I you know directing those and polish here and I kind of wrote them together. How wrote that the first when the Simon and Simon one off and then we get it together and not what I learned a lot from him and Paul? Also he he had the idea alike, have a host. I say we so like. Oh, my god, that's incredible, so I got Jeff probes to come in a happier still so it all kind of came together and it was really really fine and, like you, as you know, directing something and making something is so As I know, you weigh more tired than you ve ever ban, but it feels great wine, I think in the air. Wagon described as when I'm on a set as an actor about eight hours, I'm ready to get out of their young. You know it just doesn't hold my attention we longer would, but when you're there is a director your wishes.
You could have started earlier, em your mad. When the sun's going out you you could just What if they let you could do it for thirty six hours straight in any wanna, keep going. Yes, you never get off your feet. You there's no time in your trailer right. You know it's is watching you too, Netflix there would have yacht shares, they told a trail are all around the city and I never ever yadda change. On said, of course, you might make have done on said yeah, it's not greater. Funding is truly it so engaging I compared to be non cocaine. I'd just that's the most awake. My brain ever feels there really is adrenalin from them aren't you wake up when you're directing something oh yeah does the obviously takes her soul? I oh my god, it's the other eye and I was directing a recreation over exhilarating guideline. Imagine doing as somebody like you didn't write.
As much as you think you ve thought of every problem and in ensuring that we have an answer for a lot of them, but there are many many problems arising throughout the day. I was so you haven't. Thought of sea gonna now commit that brain power to that problem and in an that's its own thing about being beheld, be humble enough to acknowledge you didn't think of that young with How that reflects in front of your crew there's so much going on yeah, it's wonderful! Yes, after that, I wanted to find a movie to directing, and it's better while- and I just haven't- found that thing it- Naomi and I started accompany together and we ve produced three movies yeah. You ve had some sundown
yeah. We are all three of them have been the Sundance, the overnight ridable and other people, Chris Kelly, directed that one Patrick Bryce directed the overnight and then I'm fun mom dinner. So we had three movies and that's incredibly says flying to were really hands on producers. Were there on sat every day, it's really says fine and having this company with NEO me, as is great. We also produce ghost at its rights. And how do you juggle? There's two things on asking about cause you use again is off from the outside at you. You could be a mass yeah, but you do seem like one of the people. I know in this business, who is very out then Dick.
You'd take time to do things that you just love again that you're here your title, sequencing, there's no point to that right. So I guess I have so much respect for that you're, just universally loved every single person. I know really really likes you you're always available when we ve called you to help with stuff like giving someone elected or any kind of charity, and there it's all. It's all quite incredible. Tell me about your ego in us. This experience would be. Macrocosm is very dicey, right, yeah, yeah,
Ah, it had there been times where you were fully yourself. If there were their times where you, you have no faith in yourself, no belief in yourself. How do you write that wave? It's it's a thing that I have always kind of. Have I'm still figuring out and I have are it? Is it it's a day, see relationship that I I have with their with myself. I mean you know. Neo means always gonna be out. There is a lot. I when you said earlier, the thing about have self loathing and I have a you know. I have a real. So it's kind of a stop gap for me is the sore of more times than not I'm cringing after I have an interaction with some wine. Our I finish day at work were, or you know I just am. I do not always have the highest opinion-
of love myself, and I think many that's at this age should be kind of moving on from that, but that writing that I'm always battle trying to work on in battle yeah I mean I started there be like you know, I think, also parks and wreck kind of I didn't. I had an experience, sort of being a recognisable person right, yeah instantly before and that really changed my life, it s very slow. It was kind of like the frog in the wider area. It happened slowly for me over a long period of time by, but then all of a sudden I was you know it just fell like there is a disease on my face right, wrap up people just You can feel eyes on you yeah. You know they are going well in a very, very primitive sense. Right us being primates, bromides, don't stare at other private.
If they do and then that primate turns and acknowledges. I see you looking at me. You either have to submit to you now or its go time. It's a very unnerving just the rapture, Party or brain has a very hard time digesting that whole experience right and it is a weird, stupid dichotomy, because of course that that is a symbol that you ve achieved. Something yes, so part of you is. Is it grateful for it and in part of dishonour Anna animal mystic level. Is I got these little kids in are all aware of us, and I I feel like I'm not protecting images, all dicey right, yes, and I think also, if you have deep down low opinion, yourself, the opinion you're gonna have of a person who comes up. Do you thinking? You're great is even lower Yahoo. I well, besides a great height, yo bad, yet you're not worthy of any kind of praying Only a oriels bottom feeder would like you exactly so
you mean I'm a huge fan of yours. I think you know it's element of Nigeria has exactly so. I think that anyone who gets, who becomes even moderately recognisable like I have you'd think going into Farrabee, is a really good idea. Yeah, probably necessary, is you're. Also not an extra effort by nature are not at all. No right in does force you to be an extra virgin, because when you start interacting with somebody, if you don't take the leap and you're at the mercy of them steering area to be stuck in a corner for four hours and also you need, I found that the moment something starts happening. You step in the driver's seat. Put the media's yeah, take control, wrap it up, give them a pleasant Algeria,
so, they can carry with them, but you know also make sure that it that it doesn't weird your kids out well yeah and then on our all use it just a separate examples. I've I've become friends with a lot of men. In this industry who occupy a very alpha position, ah status wise, but that's who they were growing up, so it is, a very weird coat to be wearing for them in any, even in simpler terms. Guys who have never done well with. Ladies, Did you recognize? How often they about all this access in it can be very corrosive? It can be very. They can be a lot of mistrust in it. It can I've. I've met friends who have said it is actually made them massage, monistic and weird ways, so it is of its it in its incredibly unique.
You watch your colleagues Beria experience right and you seem to navigate it well, but that don't you think how much credit would you give to nail me as far as keeping your head, nay, realistic, play so everything olenin, all of it. She's she's, not enamoured with you not at all, which is great, not evolve, never was Maybe you and you're in the coffin per he'll, give it up yeah she's here I'd. She has the best taste of anyone. I know so and I trust her implicitly she's the smartest person. I know she's, you know it's all its cheese, I'm real fuckin homerun guys super attractive, she's, very mom, just the person you would love to be caught having to talk to them.
Grocery stores, wonderful she's, the best I'm very lucky book. But for me it's a real asset to have Kristen as a wife, because if I start thinking my shit doesn't stink, because I have this unique job. It's really great to live with someone like a hot shot. I have the same fucking job cinema actually more popular than you did itself. You unaware whenever thing you think, is insurmountable that your dear poor, you you're enough, very helpful to me to have a sounding board that, as some experience with it herself and then be just there's nothing cool or fancy about what I do. I think I could see myself abusing this role I have if I was with, one who had a job. They hated in mind seemed ideal. You know yeah, oh totally, I think you know Kristen seems like the kind of person that always has a plan verse enough and even if she does it, she's able to formulate one quickly like when that thing happened with the
hurricane, and she wiping out the folks, the old people yeah I was. I saw that kind of popping up on social media was like yeah. That makes total sense. That Kristen is taking off, the reins figuring it all out, making everyone feel fine about. What's ha ha ever some folks, their favorite memory of the last five years was being evacuated and hurricane. Exactly yet, which is Incredible get exactly something. I don't do all that. Well, where are you now? I had again not because like you, I suffer froze some warped self perception and most of the time, and so I would go to a place where, like they wouldn't want that. For me, how bosoms, it was said, Annie and then ultimately fraudulent. I don't deserve like I just don't assume that I'm gonna walk in the seniors, we're all gonna even be aware of who I am and one on my fun train right where which allows yes and by what it comes down to it.
They don't care. No, maybe they knew Christian was. Maybe they didn't. The fact is she came in and lit up the room and yet the seal all right. She just pulled out that happiness. Uzi and I started spry and the same are lower than the US. There was pretty incredible I thank you so much for coming and being used or have a me as terrific, and I feel so good to know that you want hated me about that really helps me and ways you can understand. I'm so big Z being envious of other people. I can't even comprehend some unmet have wanted to be where I was well that this is the moment you talked about about not getting a role and wondering who the fuck is. Adam Sky in the morning, you re before You start acting that one day you wanna get something and make us about the other, that's what I'd never heard that about myself before Sir that's coming from someone like you Incredibly, ah, oh yeah, there was a period where I hoped I ran into you in a dark out ends.
Yeah. I guess so. I feel honoured to be friends with you and my eyes thing and we shall team up on all kinds of funds. Over the years to come back again. They do and if you'd like to hear my good friend and producer Monica PAM and point out the many errors in Pakistan desert Monica Patman, what do you have for us in the way of facts with Adam. You mentioned that midnight run kicked off the sort of black and white Comedy Buddy movie you did or might not have been emulated came like a became, became a genre yeah, but it will be turned into black and white right right here and then you had said like lethal weapon.
And and say others, so I was just to failure gap here, some others. Forty eight hours rush hour I know there are some these predate that mobile. Whatever of these are awesome movies, cop out man in Black die hard with a vengeance IKEA Sam Jackson, I met opera, ok to use seven hidden, run you punched Rosenbaum out cold, and then I just wanted to say: that's Michael rose and Bomb Olga Radio. He deserves that cried again here. The shattered the great punch in that same aha we're all here. Basically, because of my arose, a madman yes rob our other podcast producer produces rose on the inside of mind with Michael Rosa mom, whereas where I met Rob yeah me too, for I met wrapped her not at their pack has met anyway. I'm ok, so you guys we're talking about in movies and people get hit in the face there out cold for too long.
She heard conveniently yeah, and then you said: if that happened in real life, you you'd have to get a pet scan, but you might have to get a pets gamble, more likely public get to see tee scandal or an MRI growth probably a seat great. So if you get knocked out at a bar someone in your on that structure in the hospital request, one of those that Monica you see, I have not a pet scam yeah, because it's the cheapest all its affordable good. Will I wouldn't for the rights of other bills to if you just got knocked out away. That's a more in depth x rays. That's like the first thing: they're gonna do ok, just ass. He had scans or more for diagnosing disorders hooker anyway, cloudland disorders. Okay, so you said that you see Santa Cruz has passed, fail, fuck, your obsessed with past. Really I brought it about Stamford hadn t right, yeah yeah, you did. I don't know how you know so much about
she's a ass pale system, but anyway they did have passed in two thousand. The professors voted to start instituting letter grades suit. Soon it should grant- and this makes sense because all of my knowledge of colleges stopped in two thousand, when I graduated from college servers myself on a sense that I you know cause when you're on a universal messalina. You see system your everyone's gonna. Yes, he's motherfuckers up in Santa Cruz past Val yeah naked Sixty, on persona. Whatever the hell passes yeah, but it did. You started to make no sense, because, because people didn't under lake, when they try to get jobs, mean anything here, every one was in the top honour percent other class right exactly so. You mentioned that there are surf gangs in Santa Cruz and there's a whole history of surf gay, all my ya yeah.
It was really the mainly the wet there's the west side in the east side. Rivalry. Ok, because we are concerned that the oceans on the west side on the way these same anything here inside of the west side of that sort it. But it's heard out, cannot like time cheek. I get out of my being sure, but then in any way serious and had to some real gang implication. Then he started like merging with real gangs. Any realities- yeah, oh yeah, I know get scared, but so it is not really his eyes to think I was gonna get sucked into a gang. I believe that I really was a scare, the honest and those wake up, and then I was in a gang yeah. Ok, so he added mentions Plank castle, Wolf and Stein. I had never heard of what that Have you heard of it? I still haven't heard of it. You know he apparently set it out
Let's do it my word or my brain to hear all the syllables he was. Ass, a woman's dying, some game. It will now, I know and require, can start work. We re very good book and walked out of the mass media and really sweet I'll look out snakes, castle, wolf and sign is still based action. Venture shooter video game for the apple too. Oh, it was released and eighty one and then later ported to Emma s dos the Atari Mc Commodore sixty four. So this is the age restore. You know we're living in here
right? Commodore six wars in television, legal vision, that is a video game, shoot out many a man so Adam said that movies in the eighties, when he was seeing movies, the matinee were two dollars, approximately the annual average. U S ticket price and nineteen. Eighty three! It is pick ninety eight. It was three dollars and fifteen cent. What a bargain I know, but you know it's weird. According to this website, it says the average in two thousand. Seventeen was eight ninety seven for a man, no average shipwright ass, the latter being moods matinees, I'm sure it's just a linear. Neither does it how ripped off here, It's gonna be a hundred percent, but Why are in our away where twenty bonus guaranteeing box? If you go to the American about them, but my favorite place, we lay down recline or that's a good thirty dollars. Tat really is
with part of that might seem like it out paste inflation, but at the same time, the price of movies making has even further outpace that so don't be too man. I'm a little man. Do you mention a mic twist, which is a skateboard moves? yes, yeah Anna Snowboarding move how we saw a hero in this Olympics. Other point tomato our energy mix for its, but we certainly gives our narrow and we want among the podcast. May I say that publicly? Yes, we love you Sean. Why you're so cool your hair, so thick love, it may decide to show all ashes locks. So a mic twitter is a transitional break that was invented by Mcgill module. He was a pall, parameter bones brigades, Gator, Ridge, okay, and that consists of a front flip combined,
and, with the five hundred in already degree, rode up twist and a half, I believed salon dying. So you brought up Nate talk a lot of times, guided You just said Nate because he knew knave as well, so that unemployment that enabled actually didn't but the world does yes. Innate talk is my the second stage of my life, air weekly, of course, my childhood best friend, but they talk and I met at the first level, the growlings and ninety. Ninety six on boy did we he fall head over heels in love. We ve been in love ever since he produced are the first move, my brother's just as many produce hit run me produced chippies. He's all around perfect human being. We're all know them. Yeah me too, You tell me how you respect. I love you so perfect. He's wonderful irish background, very acute father, air smart, the nicest Harrison alive your password,
Whereas about me in the nose intentionally several times, he has a real fiery street, which is really fun, seeks he so kind, and he explode has five Adam mentioned when River Phoenix was nominated for running on empty. I couldn't remember the year he thought. Maybe it was eighty seven. It was eighty nine and then Adam had said he was in high school our junior high at that time, but an eye, but I crunched these numbers and he would have been sixteen over their eyes. Sure sophomore moon. I was much older than I was not born. I was a senior and I was sixteen were now I was how and when I see her grow now I turned eighteen.
You can't sit our laramie sixteen and turn it now listen. I turned a teen a couple weeks in to my freshman year. Call all my goodness knows too young now is the right. So Santa you meant, you asked what kind of industry Santa Cruz had a heart. He suggested fishing. Cynical whose or lies primarily on its agricultural tourism, high technology and educational industries, educational. The phrase be that high surpass values that we now know is it passed by a correct, Bert, ran out. You said biggest backs up the star seven out of ten years in a row. Well, not the robot, so now tenders, none can seven out of ten. What ten years then
the old ten years or more in a ten year period, the biggest star, but not not seven and arouse like he skipped happens. Yeah I think you had said. I also. I think I read this Playboy interview with him. I don't think it's like a long story short. I looked for a long time and I could not find that this is what I did find. He was the fourth highest biggest box at the start of the seven is ok after Robert Radford, Harrison Forward and Richard Dreyfus Kay and then he was the third biggest star of the eighties. Ok after Clint Eastwood anymore. I do want to add the one thing when you are talking about that some people get these like their lifetime average, while they land in France. I like STAR tracker, star wars or whatever, whatever. If you fucking open smoking, the bandit that had a thirty page scrap and it makes a hundred ninety million. Not that's much different mean that some might you can you get it? You can a tribute that
success too bad actor. So I do. I wish there were more complicated. Calculus do not give him the credit that he deserves share. I has endeavoured I was in these really low budget movies, and they made a ton of money. Of course, we can't really compute that. But what about this? I'm not only making the point that if you're making a thirty million our movie, this the regularly hitting one fifty the clearly the stars in doing it, but you can fuckin put me in a marble movie and even I won tank that thing it would still make a billion dollars and have no but to me I thought you guys. I was right, good eurozone circle back, you were wrong. Things are pointing out, so you said smoking in the band. It was the third biggest film of that year and Jaws was made that year and it made a hundred and eight million dollars and those in seventy seven, and it was the second time. Es grossing movie that year after STAR wars, oh ok, yeah her and when Jaws was earlier, maybe
the film actually growth, a hundred and twenty six million, aha, seven hundred and thirty, seven thousand four hundred and twenty eight in North America, while that's great yeah, that's huge! So you said: Avatar went for a year and theatres, aha avatar was in these four thirty four weeks holy smoke, so not quite fifty nine weeks, but damn near close here, early class, spike least signature move on the Dolly tat does it have a name double Dolly shot lobby Dalmatia, which it gives the illusion of someone floating
camera. I may tell you how to do it again, so usually Dolly Shot is executed by mounting a camera on a tripod and mounting that tripod to attract is incorrect or, if not a tripod, actual physical dolly, but do you know them little Chapman machine? That's got wheels on Serbia, Macedonia, so the camera guides then, and back and whatever so, for the camera gets physically closer to the attic its film India on it in a gliding motion. So for the double dolly shot he set up a dolly per usual. Then he puts the actor on another job, that's what it high. He moves a camera and the act or at the same time, HU, the actor yeah. That's gives the fact that there are floating like a good jobs, locally, yeah, sorry about the next best Badia I know.
Annex, I know I know I know how dare you know you got here really popular during the Indiana pacer play off Games, Reggie Miller, like it three threes and twelve seconds or some unheard of any kept. Looking I doubt that spying spike was yelling at him in a big deal easier used. The biggest the only thing you reference, Bonnie Hunt, sick com that you are on twice is so funny that was called life with Bonnie Life with bombing yeah, and that should only ran two years You aren't twice in the same year. Oh yeah, I tell you, I was always separated by three or four episodes in a later completely different person, I was a surgeon and then a director. You react I scar yes doctor. I scar in Kyle Levine. Well, there's my director new year, and they were your third and fourth credit I believe I am BB yeah she's, so so the first thing I did the first move. As ever appeared in that was released
was cheaper by the dozen those operas camera crew, and I have like one line to Steve Martin and on that sat which Bonnie Hunt was and she was so nice- and I got to talking with her by her trailer and she's that I'm gonna call you in to do my tv show and then she really lived up to that word. I have to get in then punked hadn't even come out yet, but it came out in the interim and then whatever is course Jijiu. She got me under shown. I had nothing, no reason for us to think do the other than chatting with her at a trailer she's, the greatest that's very nice de jure rather doesn't isn't your first, your first credited credit sure sure yeah, but it wasn't released. Two minor church leaders be nice Maybe I know now- I don't really know about- and everyone knows, nay tat. Let's hear it a name which is next year to work. As you say, he changed the name and it's not on. I am to be its hair. She
right in an end up being called to smooth with tee o Jerry Connell's character and stand by me as named Verne, I'll, cut, Hussy Gray and then use video to stand at I d ay or that's that's a supermarket address restore as I learned. I had no idea what that was. It says they're all over their nation wide, but I've never seen one Ok regarding new their nomination! Ok, can you guys been talked about groundlings in Eu C B and just for pre listeners who don't know what they are by now? They probably do but they're both comedy schools amass, analysed families and upright citizens Brigade and when you're you're, a product of you see beyond I'm a product of ground when we fight about it. Yet You see we were starting New York residing or learn best. Sir Besser Map Matt Wash Matt Besser Amy Polar. Horatio say now. I was part of that first action.
Great! You never knew a use, IE and Models Union Robert. I did it and Robertson you, and see them in New York and in LOS Angeles they might even have more that I don't know about in then Growlings is just in LOS Angeles and their very, very famous popular calmly schools. You said without a paddle made a lot of money with very little, and that was the opposite of the third, so the budget for without a paddle was nineteen million, made sixty nine point.
