Episode 1045 - Stephen Root

2019-08-15 | 🔗

Stephen Root grew up moving all over the country because of his dad’s job. Being uprooted all the time meant he was shy and quiet without too many friends.  Fortunately, shy, quiet people are good observers. Stephen tells Marc how he was able to channel this childhood disposition into his acting and each opportunity always led to something else. Shakespearean acting helped him play a Klingon on Star Trek. Working on King of the Hill led him to a table read of Office Space. Stephen even sees Newsradio as paving the way for his work on Barry, for which he received his first Emmy nomination. This episode is sponsored by The Righteous Gemstones on HBO, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Ben & Jerry's, and Starbucks Tripleshot Energy.

I don't know, look I dont know from then or I'm getting dementia, I dont know I do no. Oh, my god. I just got back from New York was along flight and in sweet much. I was there doing press in eating things I shouldn't that was on the agenda at a schedule. It said said: ducal bear it said. You do a wild build. I said you know you can do some serious radio show and then you're going to do. With sag panel with Betty and Alison, and you are also going to each cheese which you don't usually do and don't be afraid to go and stuff your face cause your away from home, and yet you brought your running shoes and your shorts and you're running short, but dont bother going
because it sat in a hotel. Gm isn't it, but maybe if you kind of maybe four went to join equinox. No, you can't see. Maybe if you get yeah well, that's where that was at so that happened. I'm ok!

Fourth, you can go to w T, have pod dotcom, Swash tour for my tour dates of coming yeah get tickets to the shows, if you want, seems that our fifteen hour and a half is coming along nicely its bold, its fresh, its crass, its elevated Its relieving, I will say that I was in New York and I spent time of Betty Analysis and we had a very nice time. I I did a panel sky, actors, Gill, Panama with they showed a couple of episodes of the show an
we do a little q and a actually. I don't really know how to advise butter I did have some advice and I share that with you in a minute, but I did want to clear some stuff up On Monday, I talked about the passing of the Amazing David Berman of Silver, Jusan, poetry, fame I also with it. When I was in New York, I had a nice kind of the hour and a half reflection. About David with the Mat Sweeney, the guitar player. Who is my closer to him that I was I guess I said on Monday. I didn't really know him that well, but I was always sort of obsessed with him in his work not gonna, flesh things out from you a little bit told me where David was that over the last couple years of his life, and that was interesting. We had a moment of reflection about other
people we ve known, whoever died or in their ended their lives as you get older. These things happen sad but the one thing I did want to clear up because I didn't know for sure, but now I know for sure the poem I read reflections I had about him were on the money. For me they come from my heart, but the poem. I read that I attributed to do if it Berman apparently is not the right David Byrne, and I want to straighten out because One thing I've known have come to know over the years is that when you us away when your time is done here on this planet or the the alive part. It sort of astounding how quickly that news and that tragedy or or that passing. However, it's it's experienced kind of fades into the past.
And I think everybody wonders how they're gonna be remembered. If they're gonna be remembered, what happens in a practical sense after you pass away- I try not to think about it. I imagine most of us try not to think about it. The one thing that I I would want to hope doesn't happen. Is that if I have some work out there that is ambiguous in terms of it being views with someone else's work. Or Miss labelled as someone else's work or not separated in its put under the world as yours. I would be thou, be a bummer if I was dead- and that happened to me that done me out so couple of people emailed me. And apparently there was a blog posts by the day, It berman that debt that to have passed away a week or so ago, from the silver Jews from purple mountains from
a tree and it was dated, May twenty nine, two thousand and nine. This is a blog post by the late David Berman who I talked about and it just says F why I colon other David Berman's, David Berman, the plastic surgeon who reattached John Bob, it's penis, David Berman, mobster and co owner of the full mingle. Hotel with Bugsy Siegel David Berman, graphic designer author of do good design, a book on ethical standards for graphic designers, David Berman, the theoretical physicist, David Berman, television, actor, CSI David The irish philosopher, David Berman, nineteen, thirty four to twenty seventeen was an attorney and accomplish poet who is very different from my own poetry, is nevertheless often accredited to me three of his poems, and here is his book. All these are links what I'm the things I'm reading off at this sight, the first night
poems are by him. The next five by me far be, for me to stand in the way of another David Berman and then there's day Burma, with an the electronic music via and Most composer here is his record unforeseen events now the site that is referring to is a site where I want cause. I couldn't find the book his book right, awake, visiting a pile with how like a thousand books downstairs, which are you know, in the middle of of transition, waiting to be reconfigured on shelves when I get the new studio up and running, but the poem, its poem hunter dot com that has both David Berman's poetry lumped together so to honour the David Berman who I, kind of new and preceded his work and know a lot of his work, I needed make sure. My heart was straight:
read one of his actual palms now. I think this sentiment of the poem. I read on Monday fits some of the things that David Burma the guy, I know thinks about, but it was not his palm and no reason a freak out, many people made this mistake in remembering and blogging about the Silver Jews, David Berman, Purple mountains, David Byrne, so this is a corrective I'm trying to help this culturally does a cultural corrective, and you heard from from from that blog post, I read from David Vermin than the guy who pay the way a couple weeks ago, and this is a poem by that David Berman, the guy I was eulogizing and remembering on Monday. This is called snow. Walking through a field with my little brother Seth, I pointed to a place where kids
had made angels in the snow. For some reason, I told him that a troop of angels had been shot and dissolved when they hit the ground. He asked who had shot them, and I said a farmer Then we were on the roof of the lake. The ice looked like a photograph of water why he asked why did he shoot them I didn't know where I was going with this? They were honest property. I said when it snowing the, doors seem like a room today I traded how Those with my neighbour, our voices hung close in the new acoustics, a room with the walls blasted to shreds and falling. We return to our shovelling working side by side in silence but why were they honest property? He asked that is a poem by the way David Berman who I talked about on Monday, and I'm glad I feel better. Now. I hope he does,

And the things are bleak and dark in there happened inside your head, not outside try to try to get some help so work. I am, I don't five told this story. I probably have, and I don't know it's not really my place to help anybody in Munich conscious way like you out here, sums here's some advice: buster buster, buster, stop it buster. What are you doing? What are you doing? What is that noise? What what? What are you doing? Just hang out a minute, I'm working here.
So in cats man, so I do this panel and its actors specific- and you You ve heard me here: learning how to act from people I talk to and doing it whatever I'm glad everyone likes go. I am very proud of it and proud of all the work I've done lately, but you know My training is limited. But I've had a lot of experience over the years with almost acting in things in the Quest was really if we, if the many of us, had any advice for the audition process. Now, Out and embedded have done this a lot more than me. They ve been on a lot of audition to give very being a sort of productive sort of way he's a framing the audition process in and what Europe in and how it works and the other feeling of auditioning for this
in people over and over again by casting agents and that sort of like making the most of the audition price, this gives. That might be the only time you get to act, that particular role and then like I felt like, I do to say something and I and I in our eyes, gave them I said I gave to Conan. Like a million years ago, like after I gave you the maybe its first year of the of the show and You told him my current mantra at the time, which was hide the hate and I told them to the actors. I said but when you go into that room, he got a high date. Gotta big laugh, I think its practical, I'm not seeing People are hateful, I'm just saying that you know when you being judged and you're in secure and you're scared. Why not resent with malice? maybe now with malice or at least resent the people that have complete control of your future. In that moment, how can you not maybe that's my problem.
But I also share the story I I've must have shared it at some point, the out of my career. You know when I was: Just an angry comic that really young people, Didn't really know me, but he I'd I'd done. I think I'd done the tv, but I wish I was intense. And a kind of shocking and jarring and you're not really defined, but people thought they could get a handle on me like a agents in man. Your father to cranky guide. I was, I was really kind of unbridled unformed without boundary and furious, I don't know why. I do know why, but doesn't matter its. It was a lot of things I'm older now I can't even remember how long this was gotta be. I must mean in my early twenties, maybe mid twenties. Some our another. There is a sham, recasting and it was I get behind the scenes. The show is to take place almost an oil sanders kind away behind the scenes Eddie at a new
video network and I a director or producer. My part was so some our another I'd made it to the network callback, which is really the though ass, stopped before you get the gig. And it was it was heavy duty was at the network. You know usually with those things you go in for people from the network. You go in for casting people, but it's mostly producers. The writers, like it's a big deal, it's like it's the last stop before you. I guess got the gig. I saw some actors, I recognise there and I don't know me and I would freak out about fucking everything. This is what I realized in New York in Muslim, realizing in my life, in realising with performing and just my job in general. Is I'm not that freaked out yet to go on Colbert go on. Those shows aims to make myself crazy. I'm going I'm going over
to court in today- and I don't even know what I'm wearing a maturing and talk about- and I don't give a fuck, because it's gonna be fine, they'll tell me when I get there, but that took thirty years well anyway? So this character, this this I know I gotta do is like this guy losing his ship. Basically at another person and I dont know where I was act, but I know that you I know roll over my talent. I didn't idea I'd, know parameters. I didn't understand what it was and in same with my emotions, and also the same with my substances. So I'm about to go in for this reading of this model, and the casting aging comes up to me and she's like
we go in there. You know just dumb, you know just go for it. You know India, this this guy's angry he's raging. You know you can just go for it and for some reason I thought she said go unload the entire anger of your entire life in room in appropriately without even remembering the lines of the character in front of a bunch of executives. That's when my brain heard, go in there without any sense of character. Any sense of what the scene is an and do this this monologue with all the rage that is accumulated in your heart and mind and spirit over the last. I guess twin some odd years. Your wife at that point. And I went in there and she walked in here
sat down and I unloaded like a type of rage like ours, spit, I didn't know the lines I was talking to anyone. In particular, I was just ranting in advance, but my red faced, it is screaming all of my guts out totally appropriately for the character or anything any public space in general anywhere that type of expression. I finished it took breath, and I looked at all the executives and casting people that were sitting there and they worked horrified shocked and maybe a little frightened. Like like veiled like it, was like what just happened and I'd like to say that they have you by security, but I think I just moved off
I'm not even sure I felt like I'd overdone it. I probably left thinking, yeah, you know they wanted it. Man they wanted anger that they got it, they got it. So I do not get the pardon. I think the general advice there was a young work situation or when you're interviewing, you know you kind of try to keep your pain and sadness, and anger and hostility and check. Your therefore reason try to contextual why's that don't use it as an opportunity to dump your entire life worth of bile onto dangers that are in charge of giving you a job. I think that's reasonably good advice. I thought look we're in the dog days a summer here, MID August, taught everywhere really hot. You need to treat yourself too. Ice cream break it. Let's be honest,
but when it comes to ice cream, there's an amateur way to do it any professional way. Fury professional, you're gonna grab a pint of banning Jerry's. That's the truth! All right look right now because of, Insane fitness regiment. I don't eat four points week, but I did I did. Yeah. Now I have occasionally like a normal person. I know why even just thinking about it brings me joy, peanut butter CUP man like which were cherry, though Jerry Garcia, deputed markup will bid vanilla, Jerry, Garcia, Chunky, monkeys is ok but yeah, that would those were the ones peanut butter CUP their chocolate one week the chunks in it and the I would caught him with. You know how goes all saying is treat yourself to your favorite play anywhere ice cream, is sold the understand or find a new favorite at Ben Jerry DOT. Tk let's be and J e r R, why dot com man, Peter Parker,
when you go digging for it in you dig you dig and you find the treasure of there almost whole peanut butter cup. How great is that what There's an that really seriously. It is better to neck. So Workpeople I've told you You need to tell you Stephen Route, you I mean you will know this guy he's in bury right now he plays bill haters kind of like contractor his boss. Partner, whatever the Satan character, and jump for an outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series for an enemy, four bury bite. You know, he's been in here
It's a very memorable worldview member, oh brother, we're out where art thou he was the blind radio station owner whose Oswin Buster Scruggs. He was also the staple guy in office. Space he's like he's one of those reoccurring, character, actors that you like there's that guy but he's ease fuckin inspired and I was happy to talk to This is me talking to Stephen Route. You can move the night began. A thousand browser? Do you gotta go close well here? Where are you how kind on here he stared at five run when it did it now, they ve been. I did not start with you. I appreciate that I actually met you briefly. Very briefly I did one day of shooting
what's his name, It's his name all thine eye the MIKE Mike movie idea the idea and there it was at night though everyone understand- and it was a gay our aid now. Is it yeah yeah yeah? Do you watch movies I watch him once We must to a certain point when you ve done, and a million movies not too who talk to Stephen Dwarf, I guess it's kind of an arc away to start. Pagano must have done two hundred movies and in that guy's and Emily what was interesting. He was now I he did that you detective thing. I thought he really killed. He really did something amazing. That point where I I didn't even know who the fuck it was was axing. Somebody for the first time But you know he. You know he told me something I should have realised by didn't really realises that, like sometimes is enacted, you take the gig, you know it's not going to be great, but you do what you do and in that sense
you do and then there's sometimes when you have a hole in your schedule, right and you're, not gonna do Lear yeah dump than throw it in there yet, but I mean I imagine, actors are employing. Ukraine must be added what should I do yeah? Well, you don't firstly to have time Ria I may cause, since I'm age my dad just remember, as they should have the data you know. So now, don't you are. How old are you a sixty? how old are you are sixty? Sixty eight November, it is big year, man, so big ears, very cool ere. I mean it's. Ok, I mean it's not like you. You mean you certainly deserve the attention pathetic here tonight, I mean Jesus man, I mean like berries great, I love the fuckin, show characters great you. Now it's it's it's a shell. That I like and in tone and and intelligentsia to news radio, oh yeah, I feel like I did, that
and now I'm doing this re has its it's really the first one I've really signed onto his irregular because I really want to Until now. I really here because the writing is A good bill is unbelievable and in the people to do it in the tone you have a tone is why only ass, just stead edge it right be between walks right on the line. How you just like you just stay as a hare away from Haiti. Fuckers yeah, like they're they're, just morally reprehensible that you can integration for all. I know likely in the many get they step over and then they stem lack wait. A minute. Can I still like this guy? I am using a person, is Sarah Character, just a dick now, which is certainly a good person for that these you're, as you know her right. If you work it, judges itself in the is good writer gates, selfishness but the, but you and Haider area those. Doctors are just you know, shamelessly evil data,
but they don't really see it. Tat were now. I dont, diving, MIKE Air, doesn't see it that way bill. I fear bills characterised Rosalind, is really struggling. Ptsd! That's what it is. Our aim Thank you. I think I mean that makes sense. So what do you do too late to supporting like as this role and in terms of white the character work is done? I guess we will start with the news. I really started back, but I like the show thanks, but like this in compared to some of the broader characters. Eve had to do this guy's pretty straight ahead. Right he's! Not you not you not! Do you have to manufacturer too much physicality or air. No! No! No! I then he's in its what's. Nice is he's a big character, but he's all right, you know you, you see the small things in is in his face and that's that's fund. For me, too, there a character. I instead you known or rail, Buster Scruggs. Don't worry it's up, it's fun!
these small on Asia. What is it now, when you need approaches grip because he is sort of satanic character, I you know, I mean there lie described as a bad uncle. A visa ban, I'll go right, violate their aid. There seems to be this way to his to his is charm and in a kind of key point in over the bad side. But it's all self involved, bullshit bright, give me the money he a hand. Is that where you start when you try to put together a guy like that, what was interesting about this show was that he didn't start to be that he was very much of a one note, yellow go out on this job guy, really in the pilot, yeah and- and we end it was still an interesting character. We finish the pilot? Looked at it, HBO looked at Miss it. Yeah, that's good where you go now you're already at ten, whereas where is he gonna work?
we'll go right, an and bill and Alex hidden, yeah, you're right, and so they re wrote the carrot her into the bad uncle that you see now failures we re shot my portion of the pilot while we're shooting episode, one no kin so so alien The guy resistant like a ranger, Caroline straight out, asshole, louder yeah, which had really had nowhere to go, wait and much more interesting. Being the guy had known his father for on try bad organs it. How can I money on this fucker here and he's got this e o your dad I'll, be there. I can now making do this a third and then without the yelling you out charm in the sort of solidarity that the kind of like weird kind of like come on. Yeah. I'm on my news. Why? These are bad people, you want to kill them by so there so then the work becomes. Is it natural You D read the script a thousand times
I do because I like to have a solid base, but then, of course immediately when you step on the said Dodo now we don't do that that all away. What do you say you I promise any longer, but he's a natural improvise around most of the people come on up these days seems to be they they, the improved training. I was straight stricken Shakespeare Theatre, read it on the page and that's what you fuckin say yet another they're all dead genius improvised. Absolutely so that's been that's a learning curve for me to do that. So that's a good learning thing for me on this but to do that more and more we didn't little button is radio. You do it more and more in any show that you go on to hear that isn't strictly right. Rip dared I inscribed type, but it's not easy, but you're doing it more on the show, then you have ever an end, its end, its right and good, because things change moment. Yeah, there's a naturalism that happened saga,
and you in and if you got the guy you can get to, it is always impressive, like as if you can lock into the guy and talk like the guy off script. That's always the case anyway. Right now I thought being doing the improv stuff, as it has been a nice learning curve for me and trying to relax while you do, which is always the hardest thing. Just relax be the guy here and then you'll feel say what he says: yes, trusty man trusted. So where did you come from? Where would you get you one? These guys, like you, you know, there's not a lot of you around anymore. These kind of like maize in character actors that I think, there's a whole bunch em. You just don't you, you, don't see them as much in India
head you all their sea, but you always say that Rikers there there, the guys in that, make the show interesting that you watch me. I know I've, I guess maybe I'm romanticizing decentralized area eyes ears like four dude that were now resolutely knowingly, there's no baby, again, yeah and and there is one of my heroes is a cure, all all those character, guys were alike who s? Oh my god, when there was great me out IKEA, and then I guess: Harry Deem was around our idea was grey use yeah he was. He was unbelievably use in everything here so, but what where did you come from care like an army? Brad but not add, was construction. He built steam power plants for a basket and that a basket and it was all in the west and they had taken a year and a half years, building on older men, but for the authority is setting higher priority. Is that little planet?
solidarity ready and whenever is coming out, actually drive by, and I wouldn't like what the fuck is. That's arriving at Justine and that's just be going to another place. It's only needs be their yearn have two years we go somewhere else. I I was in nice, we started out in when Rock Wyoming, too soon daddy. I were Muncie in the end. A fortnight Adele bag to Cares was hitherto Wichita all those black. Where were you born Osborne Sarasota lit every three weeks, my parents, they say he was transferred to New Orleans my brother was born and then we are transferred to Monroe and then we are transferred to the rock every year and a half are pretty much never more than a couple years, so you're the kid didn it happens. I was the fat assed kid who walk up. You know the right something

It was brutal and your little brother have to go through that many are there of Uganda. Just to add, it wasn't ruled ask, as it was normal and channel until you got to Junior high in high school, where I was two years the city and then was ripped out and taken down here each Florida right when he had friends right when you are highly heads, he friends and I was you know a nice science fiction, Collingwood Nerd Guy had some fresh nea was on the iraqi lane. Dundee were that around you didn't do their rather sit there and read at the idea, but in right then, and then we'd get often go to Florida and it was like. I found myself cheering for football, do give a shit about I just went home. She always site by gay, you out,

Where we go on, you now say I can do some lay out for Andrea draw some broad in one area if we do that death. So that was your dream, I dont offers a dream, but she could have done that. Do not get married and started. Move was wonder about that. Might my mom's? It is the same way she was in an art person painter you like it. In doing a bit on stage about that how're, you know how you don't really know your parents and told me if they lucky enough. They live long enough to get in

I was probably heard. Thirteen brother was drop us off at the museum, all they yet he they, yet he would just drop as honour and we, we would play will play chess outside. The big lions and the others walk around, as if you know what that the back when they use it is real good wages leave kids, and I wonder I like that. Framing of that, though my parents, right that you should go to camp where you should spend a week over there and it was really it seemed in good. It seem like you're pregnant, proactive value. They wonder how I want to get rid of your confiding later. You want to do that, dear children, so what

But I did a lot of black and white in the Old union art stuff here. So I did that my son, maybe I'm gonna down are now and then I took an elective just to get a couple of things: air carrier in one of the main stage protections and then then all these student directors ago can I use you for this,
One ok, can you suggest an alert It is just like right and then three you know three directing scenes in Ireland, I can do this this. This fund, fun and there's women. The figure parliament that that will love. It may be go out with a nerds journey was an urge journey into Heaven. Oh yes, then I got hooked up their departments, which majors double by two years in YA, see did too here- is in theory departments. We get an undergraduate acting great news. We ever got a job before before them. I invented now, God now now they had a hell. No, I have an aid from the university of learning with that. That's, where is that the first two years as in any one, giving you a special one, you'd think it's
A matter of time is up. I made it into my seventy that it probably grab that Amy. You might get an honorary degree. My right there anything about that Yeah so then I change majors went into that via I left, because there's a big audition in the south. Call the Essie teases other South eastern Theatre, contrary audition lot, original theatre, Arab and the biggest one was the national Shakespeare, company out in New York, bus and truck yeah- that do you go into the company you put up three shows into the country. Did you do any shakespearian call it? You did ya does either to it, and I love that really really loved and then so I got a job went straight straight from college to New York three weeks in Woodstock too. The hearse three shows onto a nineteen sixty three to railways and bone for nine months of the year. Your plan, colleges and
and some bigger venue, sometimes so either shakespearian actor light through when they look at you, though they they, I imagine there thinking like. Will this guy's got a handle on the language of it and they can him they can move around me? You should be able to play most of the male part. Well. Well, there's only twelve as the companies over I travel costs and every year, unless you riddle and Leisure Othello right. You know you're you're, always somebody Audrey the country, one in core in the old man in the same job was a real old school. You wore wigs our way why oh yeah, fake balloon tat the whole then use great twenty four way and so you're on the road yeah. You know in there what there's twelve and what is this? A seventy? Six there were, all you know, Hippy Debbie's, hair down, to hear that we had to curl up every nine put under wig sear, twenty four and seventy six act, and so we were in the middle, the country doing Shakespeare. You know we'd we'd get we go truck stops and we get up thing
Shakespeare: hardly you make em rawdon rails. I would dooms like a company that makes up that. We have to travel, Ross country. All of us- and I am yeah, we're delivering Roger around for you, but there was great, is the best for you get because you'd play the same, show in three hundred see junior college or five thousand seat West Point B and thus to different performances right now, aid by it. But I will so you didn't. That was. That was your training that that was the hands I was. There was a director. One guy. Maybe a couple of nose cover people on New York that they get directive shows what Philip Meister was the head of the company, and he lasted for all and you are and what basic shakespearian act I am. I am big Bent amateur India and we had a couple of older actors their thirties rivah. Who
done now? You know Shakespeare, turnings out we learn. Ago so is out there Thank you like you would seem to me. I'm just trying to put it together with some of the work he has done throughout your career. As I imagine that's a pretty good the occasion in inferred being small, being large and being broad and why you could like eight within Shakespeare, there's all those and you're wearing a wagon fake booth swiftly, but the first thing it helped me in think was when I was a cling on on the next generation and they believe they stuck strictly to put the teeth in there and you get the nose on so you had to speak, distinctly switch. I couldn't in calling on ease garage rise where's, my journey so out as it did, So I have to do that you're, twenty four! I me doesn't it: it seems like it took a wildly
Garda careers are worthy all out straight theatre cause. I because then you come off the tour here where I came often you're a couple years on it and then I took out half a year often did a lot of work, cubicle Workin temple. Knowledge it and then I went by New york- are worrying State New York, New York, their course and Marie Eleven fifty street health kitchen in the seventies, though, still was kind of house kitchen wow so still like the west is territory at or a here still. I can still remember looking out the window and sin thin. Obviously, a hooker thrown out of a cab tied with her hand, style Jesus. We ran down there and untied earn who by Syria here, while scary yeah scaring in time Where was still says: you're late Seventys was a mess. Madame s bed, he had walked out forty first real
yeah. I just remember that right, our on port authority, just crazy man was- and I was weird life sec- shows him all that stuff. It was not tat. It was not his prey, as we know, and it was pungent when you walk down to forty second street, because one summer right when they start turning around Emily, was still kind of like any animate eighties sordid turning around. So we radically EDA right. So you know So then I was just doin Nuno off of off Broadway. Echo, castor oil, which has really there can't show lay down below or just go to audition Jai directors who, whatever the rag, was that this data. You now get additions that way, When I finally got one that turned into an off Broadway show to get the equity guard room, which was a great show called journeys and unforeseen share of world where one play so we we opened up course in the middle of the transit strike and closed action, but that was
good because they got me some real regional jobs up out of town in Atlanta and and on these cuts or would like New York in the late seventies? So was Were you doing work down there like where they like the west or group was or any the we're out on that place? Yeah down in down below fourteenth street there's little million little theatres that they'd rent for nothing here? Hey you, nothing literally! They pay you to tokens. Want to go down there and want to do that and what was experience. I did you find that it was like helpful. I it was helpful cause you were forced to do some weird shit. Well, I was forced to me, I think, was good turning to make gold out of straw, because it wasn't great writing right, but there are some interesting and good performers that you could. You could work to make this thing better network hard, did you meet toward their guys. We know that you were kind of coming Edward down there. Only my rights or anger is or anybody
some people around there were an Amy, probably, but I guess falling grey or devouring as I unworthy ebonite and work with them, because those fairer lay might have made. You know sixty dollars, rising. I made a token right. Yeah, they were on the next level, exactly so wait until now when you do that thing, that was up Broadway, they got your security card. What does it look like when you? What do you mean you get what you get extended land in that kind of stuff have worried you theatre. Has that word? What got me? The equity card then gets you. Your first agent refers major whatever. Who then send you out for the regional jobs on these coasts. Well, how about a and all in all those things? Why do today, a couple months in the summer doing two shows that whenever you never knew usually it. We nine ten weak productions. You know you you're a couple weeks: doom for Psorics Fur Subscription.
Here's correct older pilato, though hares and like you do in musicals I didn't do musicals, although I was cast in one. I didn't get to do it, but I it mostly some classic stuff, a lotta new new stuff here that that the regions- where do I that's what it ended up, get me on Broadway, which we did have a show well so long and lonely Sawyer at the alliance here in Atlanta right at transferred to Boston transferred Broadway. So that was my fur. Brought with it a lead. I was late. Rosalie was great lasted for a month, but pretty good at supper had not a good day. Good reviews. Oh no, at last month, it was great, though I mean Gus, going going out of town. And there are hurting out of town in Boston and having a big success there than May you down and gone recipes shit from it.
Is that what happened there? Where that is true, I mean you like. I guess it. That's a good way to do it. I know that about stand up. There was only one pounded out any show up. The man were expected to film or tv. I mean I thought I was merely region, theatre, actor. That's what I got into anywhere in Euro K with that now look over there and then by the MID eighty he's out. I've been in New York long enough that seen in Kashmir has got. Would you want an audition for the movie here this tv thing and yeah here, and So the outside of the the shakespearean touring company no training other other than what I had to Florida, which was minimal. Really. The training that I got was on air interesting I mean cause. I I talked actors goes on. I tried it kind of sucker acting lashing out of you.
The only way I learn is is where you with actors that are much better. If nothing else- and I can yet nemean- you steal from them as that's as you do, yeah marry one, you steal from the thirties character actors that You saw movies that you love their brows jail from the fifth. What are you staring at exactly Adam? By stealing I mean there, you see their timing behind you see, right, how good they are an end in you absorb it as much as you can. I think I gotta have my charming from Warner brothers. Cartoons goes, the timing endlessly was so great. Are they really want mom, and you got that new by stealing I mean just absorbing what would you can learn from people that are really good? Why noticed that, like a recently just because I'm relatively new it, it is that there is a pace that you have to own when you're doing something. You know it's it's really. You decide it right.
The timing is everything I imagine what Shakespeare to like it like there is it if you're nervous- or you don't know where you're going we care to ride in a rush and it's not gonna land the exact you ve got a land, which is why I have to. I have to battle really solid base. Usually over and over and over line. So that then then I know them so well that then I can play than I can go this way. Go that way go anyway. So that's why I do it for me yet, but that's not Ivan lot of people show up and whether in make up they look at their scrap NGO. What's today the I can't do that, but that's it oh, how you do it for you. It was interesting, because I imagine date, can it either there they just they? Don't they don't care, I know they can, by wiping that's not the Tory Unregulated went off, lay there have a great memory or they're they're, just more comfortable being in the igneous. Barely knowing right gets him in the most.
Maybe the dearth of achieve in for me being prepared, gets me in the moment where I can, then I can do it. Everyone right So I guess you do not see how did you ever have any great successes on Broadway, we now. I guess we won. We won the tony for best revival of all my son's back and eighty six. I just that show which raise you yeah yeah, and we were lucky enough after winning, Donnie that we had. We had Arthur Miller come talk to us on the on the steps really the stage. You know that the ultimate theatre- experience and in what you are that there was a niece. For centuries, old, yeah, he's old, and what I have to say I could a lot bigger, we had just a really good Cason. He liked it and who is the lead? We had a couple leads: Ralph wait, start looked at from the wall from the mountains, yeah yeah,
the old man who had yeah he was, he was dead and we had. We had a couple of others, but dumb man of La Mancha, start in the film manner. Launch Ojeda him not Jose. Now is that guy's name cheese yeah that guy the him yesterday which I was with every day, and I can't be any but he's name anymore. It's astonished, well, you know when you have a life and even after a couple of different cities, and we must get to appoint really like someone goes. Dna Stephen you. I could just give me a timeframe and a sailor yeah and the army. I didn't do anything tariff. What I know is people and people come up to me and say Steve. I go some way from thirty years, Steve for a longer yeah, Stephen five. Instead, no sense here. Since I had a really yeah, you may choice, I met a choice to be Stephen, only people knew that longer stay stay there, so they all around fucking. Weird. If I D Stephen,
you are, we know you steer rut, your Steve Right does those guys just around the spread of Ramadan. Ah, yes, several so ok, so then you kicking around so windows. One does the movie thinking, it kicked. I did I do first movie here alone and fervour terrain, didn't like me and listen, you're gonna call back, but don't you ever tell them that this issue, first right movie? So I didn't I got the job. Was monkey shines Georgia marrow really I can remember that yeah. I think, I was in its greater, but I'd exercises Gary Movie, yeah Calahorra movie monkey looks you're bleeding ones as well. But then I got I got it The two were crocodile DE the sequel the target on Monday to hear and had a nice partner,
and then got into ghost, which was big movie. We so I'm begging you an end to the big movies that is the last one that works for a loved? Was it isn't So don't live tv, Nell Eggs. I came Adele and ninety, but it says like let's see, I'm just looking at some of the credits like Where were you in Stanley, Iris YAP and why without a good part? I was great and get to work with the neurons, fantastic. He. I am indeed it? Would you learn anything from him that he was we generous- I mean he had I played he had put his father and home. I play the head of the home and then I have to tell him at some point, the picture this file has died and he cried does his crying and he did his crying offscreen. For me, a while I was doing my offsets lights out, he's very generous I'll, that's good. Diana was awesome and goes in, and my own ended you work, you did you have seen for them in guilty by suspicion is well yeah, just short short
so these are a lot of them were those kind of part or yeah yak. As you heard of you, you, you could do five ten Broadway plays and then you go to allay in Europe at the bottom of IRAN right Jack. I don't care what you do, but he put it seems, like you were pretty good at young at least making good audition her and others will you I even if he had like four lines you grounded yourself in it. You showed up for world out there. You are that guy, because that was the returning you are you alright ground yourself? You know your lines, you dont Lebanon, the furniture near there and then you just started so we went to you moved allies like permanent in ninety yeah in ninety. And started immediately doing you know guest our stuff verify. It was fun comes first Did I think was night court had did a couple couple of things with Harry Harry. Actually wrote me an episode and Roseanne and all that stuff. Then, sir, in that's that's a lot like fear. Three
camera very much so here you just live audience yeah and those that were used our day. You no kind of really real I said yeah in order to to kind of really landed the you gonna pushed her character, Big YAP, because it's strange hybrid doing three Cameron an audience near fork, Amorrhites, where you have to be small enough for the hammer and big enough to ride over two hundred. You know, get the latitude audience. Yes, oh yes, it was a great learning. Exe, her aunts and while you did some J J the fat man twice. He sat with Gatt was cannon right now, who never ever ever learned. William Conrad, only huge, words behind your head. Then he read looked at you probably right
It is guards behind her head. It was on his way to me with great. I remember when I was a kid. Is my parents used to watch cannon yeah. Those like a big show was, so that is. Was that one does it like? I imagine, as you get into your working with these people, that you ve known as its goal, then right nerd boy to go. The outward were those got in. There was at the first time you like. Oh, this is a different world, they're holding a giant sign behind them, It really get away with your wife does need learn his life is. That was the question. Now is just a mean, but that happens a lot. You know sometimes there just no time you know cause thereon sixteen our daily out and to do so so taken around you're, making a living by eleven man and by the union
not necessarily noticed, Knowns really. Now now I'd chaos like the stealth bomber I'd Ghana do stuff, and that would be. You know right eyes. This funny, and was it got a chance to do it. Or an on on radio, because I had five years of that and now I gave you a regular got your on every episode, yeah you're, the owner of the only I working with Andy as YO they'll Hartman fill the best. And Joe Rogan, an area Vicki? Louis, more tyranny: amusing on live past that I still oh mother, and so that was when I mean you're already a year or forty, forty two, forty please I'm like a now is like that was the one that you know got you your insurance yea all that stuff. You know it's like an ETA. I at that point I was here thing to be at, as you know, has ever got his.
Maritime, more job right about the same time, right to forty three key issues about out of business right, and he got that and then more than its essence were you thinking now. Thank as I know that I have thought that, like your ear, when I heard that sore, I thought of that right. What eagerly the guys you can very self to keep getting older in terms of when they broke absolutely and eventually ends avoidable dangerfield. Do it signed yeah and so news radio, then then you landed nearer. Therefore, like a hundred hundred hydrogen and then fill of course. Unfortunately got killed. And we didn't another season would love it as fails rice replacement, interviewed, feel not here, obviously, but in another format, weird sort of ours. I guess you mean shall be new, is almost like before the internet could do it right.
No one saw or heard it in what worked it that Microsoft office, but I did get me and he is very gracious. Nice guy really was, and I a recently acquired the America album that he did the cover art for He did. He did a lotta, you did poker did a whole bunch of stuff. The allowances thing, but I imagine, working with a guy like that, you must have picked up some things absolutely cause the keys another guy that can drop in the characters and has an amazing timing. They also seems founded in Warner brothers. It is, but also he was, he was very meticulous guy. He was the guy that had tabs on every seen in his script knew exactly where he was at all times to number seventy up, but there and he was- very, very prepared, so he's a guy that liked in carry sides. Yet a book postscript yeah, I'm noticing that more. I think that on the trickiest Brad acting is like if you shoot out a sequence like what had happened,
before they are yeah. That's that's part of your homework does to really find out where you are here in this, because I mean I shot. I just shudder unending, where I wish we did. The lasting first yeah Likewise, I don't have a character. Yet here we go beyond the end of the movie at the end of the movie. I want you to figure out the character right now, back loading yeah, it's weird because, like if you're not carefully to sort out the same energy and every seen as I come, this guy's, not tired Dundee just run here, yeah. So that's what I learned mainly in the first years in television when he had no exactly where we were in script. Do you have all book your for yourself a couple. From old. I used to keep a lot of stuff and my wife finally said, How can I gave him anywhere about in terms of when you're on sat, do like t deal with sides or d ever nope, like the whole script? What I d like to deal with, I like to two whole.
Sides during the irish camera blocking right and then I then I have to throng because you're then, Sir, my life draft is gone and you have to work right yeah. So after news, radio White now wait wended Wenders relationship with them more, the Collins happens. Waiters how does office space and Cosette seems well, that's real because, right, sometimes I was doing news, radio yachting the hill. They asked me to condition for that right, MIKE Mike did cause. He knew I do without a southern care Doesn't I've done a lot of southern theatre characters the out and go come in for this so got on that and then from mad he started writing office. Base and we are all on the fox lot doing. King in the hills so picked a bunch of us king. They ll guys to read it for Fox. Our data tabled, we Don T for Fox and MIKE was gonna Red Milton the part that I had
then I would want to see it. Do you read our thanks for the prep as were walking over any gives me this two minutes. Pencils casually done of Milton said. Do that guy kind of I say? Ok, I said I probably would give him more of a lisp and an halting this niece, whatever you do here have fund, but I I did three or four characters that did the the psychiatry or the hypnotist who dies in the middle of oh yeah. What do you guys? Who braithwaite him? The big guy he's great he's too beyond whose Yeah, improvise, yeah, really like that guy tremendous account. So I did as part of one of the Bob's. I did something else I like through four parts during that reading and eight than they bought it the
and then it becomes idea initially not that hit our nothing zero yeah really yeah zero, but it was right at the time tooth around two thousand and nine two thousand. Yet dvds were becoming right, a huge thing right, so you go to block but turn and they recommenced often, and it became a word of mouth movie and then people start coming up to you on the street saying your line. You go nobody's That may be? How did this happen and its dvds and it was huge? this was at the air I just was in Austin fur. I was its by South West and then I was asked to presented some weird event: where was the anniversary of office space? What is it like one when a year and a kind of As for their, my albert, I was gonna, be there by his work and yet and so that that guy that character, you just put that again because the first I remember, like I remember seeing you, but that was such a transformation thing yeah, but that's that
what I had always been doing, that it got seen on a bigger scale rang out for that, and it was just something That was real natural for me to do where you, contained a letter to retrieve I just about that. Guy just like knew him and who guys like him. And I could do it. So what do you do that I mean do so. You knew guys like him. Sir, do you find yourself? You know like seeing people? and yet you are you. Are you a good mimic? Now, I'm a fairly decent audio member be out, I I all my life, I've always felt like I was observing. He said I think, a lot of love shy Are you guys? I urge our observers can also do you feel like that you did in his we're question, but I just ask it from my my own point of view did you feel like that. You didn't have a complete self yeah.
Dead, and then maybe that was because removed. The idea had no chance to complete myself right until I got the college in that create sensitivity! You because you're always look at what is should be doing that. I don't know that's true, and at last he was to be able to talk to people, and yet I people like maybe I shouldn't, even if it's a hair cut or movement or sure yeah, and that's where you get a lot of stuff. That's where you get Milton from office space. We could indeed than anything, look and who do you know, It's amazing that he's right. There he's there whenever led him, but people can do him really much better than I can now really years later it occurred to me that much better than I am now so it is that does that function at some sort of brake? Are you in film, or I mean after the dvd thing at or no I mean really just it's just you just now
plugin along still arguing along a news radios, Unita, radio, we're good, was nice house, get settled, secured settled and ran some residuals and some ok and then you go get some more jobs right, but I found it I was just doing. I was getting offers an audition for only said, comes from so ice after, while just gonna stop do and waited for some more is like guys, I'm sorry, experiences are the south for your concern that you would be stuck. There thought I'd be pigeonholed, so I wanted to educate some other casting directors and neurons that's why I ended up, which was good and end up. Getting you know, says smaller parts in in dramatic shows little. I finally got a nice recurring. West Wing and then ok are you do that the Berlin and then that leads to other things, and then they say you not is just right, MR When does Roy relationship with the Collins happen at?
and around the same time does, I think, has run too thousand around the same time as right after office space, and I am sure that they didn't know of office. Major costs I wanted to their audition as a straight audition? Yeah working character right. They love working character after yeah so I went in and I were what three feet up yet and I went in and they send for you, you won't even through the sky, no, it yeah the two of them in a disaster area, the two of them, the dancing director and I took up my glasses and I did the. Dropped you're my idea and then I started doing the guy and they this disease, both which was great. It was my fault, and as our ever as an actor, and they gave me the role which is very nice to see you, it decides and you had the guy when you went in the annual under the guy near and admit that, guy that blind eye I'd say
I'd heard that guy millions of times grown at our Saviour and I'd seen him from use an amalgamation of a couple of thirties things? He added ass I am aware that I thought that was an amazing cared nets, one allowing work. You have too easy office bazin, and he s here your brother, you, like that God, that's the guy that weird guy you boy can do all these things today, but there the thing is: is there as it seems that help going to use character, actors and with the potential for cartoonists. You know this? Always there right, but they have a real handle on. It goes right there so set Ria because, like they did it with Nicholas Kay Jeanne, raising Arizona there like your card to get in and that's that and they can ever able to ride this interesting line. That is you,
equally, there is, I ever saw there. I mean their story, bordered with an engine of their lives. That's what I heard of it. It's a beautiful thing, because then you do that and they're happy and then you play with one and they might use, and that might not ok, he's very structured in and on many issues in easy to work with them and their good guys are all the greater, but they seem like the kind of guys like once they cast. You have some bodies, I imagine that allow the actors they work with her is dug in his you and their character actors in here, so their sort of liking or we hired you- do the job yeah, there's not a lot of notice there do. What you do with will tell you if you go way in Hell off, but because I think that kind of amazing in in the part that you had in investor Scruggs. Was at union work, those reduce, but no you did the thing with Frank, but when Franco was you know in when those three guys ride up, they they're all such old timing, character, actors thing. It is eight Frank over lunch,
No, it was like. Cable. Yet even here, even though Franco's there, no, he s got the new seraphic, but when those guys guys, you cause you're lookin out. Well, that's true! In all all the great no thirty's worries, movies, you're, looking at the character, you lookin at Frank, Morgan and that's true, doing five characters and wizard of OZ, believable people forever. In your mind, yeah those guy and he did another one with them right or to a couple more yet the a country which is just right you get, we get shot out in the face? Yes, lovely lady, so he so good. I everyone, my God, rollings such a scary movie in terms of jet, there's no music, and that movie there's no soundtrack. There's just sounds he knows I didn't say that all my God next time you watch not a sound for not Assange rang and in Scruggs seated
Three or four also did lady killer Julia S with Hanks with Tom Hanks he was fantastic and how does he like? That's right, you played this the southern Ghana dandy. The other bank robbery mediate house you to work with. At that moment I was big for me because he cast me and from the earth in the moon before that here, the the policy of the earth from the area I owned, HBO they I can. I get the play Chris Craft head of flight headline operations, NASA yeah the guided. I urge your weight ass dear. He d just passed, but I played him through the whole series and so Tom had He was at my river that yeah and if you seem do I do a lot of these crazy comedies Bobo idiosyncrasy. That's uniting gap movie with genius it what it way ahead of its time. It's what's happening right now, sure I mean, as satire Larry appreciate yeah
Dare I dont know why the movie it didn't take off like office space and develop a cartel? Now there were whether that's foxes problem with promotion or or what I feel like if it could have a couple more million dollars, the women yeah- and maybe I don't know, maybe a bigger star, but I mean I thought everybody is great. Now Jack Shepherds acts event to another. This person who, after all, I was bad Baden like the swaying of it like it is what we are all your and get out here. You're, though retard There were no eyes rail would not. Of course that's that's my guy. There lies a get. His scalp got up, yes, ugly I'll! Do that and it? How do you like we see? Get you get sense to have all the facts in Time yeah and bury Dominum thrown thrown all over the place and that very physical way, Remy D just turn easy. You gotta turn myself downright ah
yeah. I did this point, I'm really workin for script and people, for I know it's really good scripts and to work with a really good people. So I can from there. But what about directors? I mean like it's hard for me to liking Arap. My brain rose, many movies, you ve done, but I can now have there been director well. I always I I wanted to work with Clint Eastwood, so I got to do that. J Edgar in Jagger, which was amazing, really fun, and everything that p said it would be issued real, quick, real, quick and I had people work done. Movies is saying just learn. Everything in a row because you might do it wants you might and even the first was saying when we're shootin somebody said he I will go up to this point. Then, will stop and no Jabbar pride author yeah that was it and was a nice guy supervise supervised. Directors were made an impact
I love. I really liked organ Redford to watch him. A arching work was phenomenon yeah likely cause. I can't like you: those guys, it's sort of way gum. Those guys were real movie, star yeah, and then they have to find a range within that sort of it's really he's rarities character at around. They are that end, but he really can drop anything yet. His fantastic, like Brad Pitt, saw the same Y yeah I've. I feel I feel the same. Why have you work with a guy nine? Oh Brad, from from I haven't worked with him.
