7:00 am
good morning, america. two major stories breaking overnight. >> this is matthew. pray for us! trail of destruction. at least 11 killed as hurricane matthew tears through the caribbean sweeping away town, unleashing raging floods. >> the deadly storm taking aim at the u.s. now. a hurricane warning in florida. >> destruction could be catastrophic. >> states of emergency up through north carolina. millions of americans on alert preparing to evacuate. gas going fast, stations sold out. stores running out of supplies. our team tracking the monster storm right now. and a fiery face-off. insults and interruptions at the vice presidential debate. >> and -- >> you are donald trump's apprentice. let me talk about -- >> senator, i think i'm still on my time.
7:01 am
russia and their running mates. >> the insult-driven campaign -- >> i'm just saying facts about your running mate and i know you can't defend him. >> both campaigns declare victory overnight while hillary clinton and donald trump prepare for their next faceoff. our powerhouse political team here to break it all down. and good morning, america. two big stories developing this wednesday morning. last night. tuesday night fight night for the vice presidential candidates. they shook hands there but feisty throughout the 90 minutes and of course, right now, that massive storm barrelling towards the u.s. >> that's right, george. all eyes on matthew. take a look at this satellite picture. the storm stretching 700 miles wide taking aim at the southeast. >> this is a huge state in four states, florida through the carolinas already under states of emergency. president obama will meet with
7:02 am
evacuate. >> yeah. they are already on the move, and the deadly storm has slammed into haiti and cuba. team coverage from the center of the storm and right to ginger with matthew's path right now in >> right now, category 3 storm, matthew, north of cuba, its urgent target is the southeast obamas lew will move north at 10 miles an hour and nudge nort freeport both in the warning and while warnings right here at home, vero beach to ft. lauderdale on alert. melbourne, lana parrilla, daytona beach in that watch including jacksonville and just because you haven't seen a watch issued yet if you're in georgia, south carolina or north carolina, it'll come. this is all a function of time and we're looking for a thursday night into friday southeast florida, and then it goes friday and saturday as it makes it up to the north carolina area, and out by sunday. extensive wind damage, rainfall
7:03 am
>> thanks so much, ginger. before it hits the united states, hurricane matthew setting its sights on the bahamas, the southern islands bracing for heavy winds, rain and what could be devastating flooding. abc's alex perez is in nassau for us this morning. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning. the bankrupt of the storm expected to hit here in the bahamas tonight. but overnight, the storm making landfall in cuba. here in the bahamas officials say they are preparing for a catastrophic worst case scenario. the prime minister says no island will be spared. now, officials have spent the last few days tryi tourists. there are some 3,600 tourists here on the island. about 1,600 have already been evacuated. officials say they will be watching everything here very closely. george? >> okay, alex, thanks. in haiti the destruction severe. officials warning of a life and death situation. abc's linsey davis is in port-au-prince right now. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, george. still a bit of rain here. a hurricane warning does remain
7:04 am
dodged a bullet, there are some rural areas that are absolutely devastated, and fears remain for mudslides, and possibly cholera. winds reaching 145 miles an hour tearing through haiti. category 4 hurricane bringing torrential rainfall. the coastal town here swept away by flooding. flash floods ripping through villages. this man dangerously tries to cross the ru raging. it's already 15 feet higher from where it would normally be, and still it continues to rise. police closed down the bridge. people in this village are unable to make it to port-au-prince by car. the damage in some of haiti's rural areas could be catastrophic. the majority of people live in makeshift homes. before the storm struck authorities tried evacuating the most vulnerable but many refused to leave fearing theft.
7:05 am
this rain, mud slides. this morning assessing all the damage in the impoverished country is proving difficult with communications cut off in many areas after bridging gave way and roads became impassable. standing water and mounds of trash fill several streets in the capital city. the haitian government asked the u.s. government for help in their relief effort. though, the full toll and devastation here on this island is not yet known. the death toll across the caribbean is now up to at least 11. george. linsey davis, boy, what a horrible situation down there in haiti. >> a lot of concern there, george, but also a lot of concern here at home as well. as we mentioned the carolinas, georgia and florida all under states of emergency and millions are preparing to evacuate ahead of matthew. abc's gio benitez is in miami. good morning, gio. >> reporter: michael, good morning to you. we have those state of emergency declarations, but we also have
7:06 am
those mean that conditions could start in just 36 hours. this morning, millions from the florida keys to the carolina coast bracing for the worst. south carolina governor nikki haley joining north carolina, florida and georgia to declare a state of emergency. ordering all 1 million coastal residents to begin evacuating. >> and make sure you get out of harm's way. >> reporter: traffic already piling up last night after it was announced starting at 3:00 a. east will be reversed. you can leave the coastline but you won't be able to get back in. with gas going fast, drivers are forming long lines to fuel up, stocking up on propane and plywood. >> we jumped to, like, four different stations to get gas, and no gas. >> reporter: the short supplies even triggering panic at the pump. some people even calling 911. police urging residents to be patient. food and water supplies dwindling by the minute. >> crazy, all the water gone. all of south florida is stocking up. >> reporter: matthew could be
7:07 am
1999 when 2.6 million residents in five states were ordered from their homes. and you may remember the el faro disaster, a ship that sank a year ago during a hurricane that killed 33 people. well, reports this morning that the company may be sending another ship into this storm's path. no doubt, this is a huge concern, guys. >> all right, gio, thank you and that's a massive evacuation. >> it certainly is. and i used to live in charles, south carolina and i know for a fact they take hurricanes seriously. a reason it's called the low country. because many parts of irt it are below sea level. the entire southeastern coastline is at risk along with charleston. to ginger with a look at the storm's path. >> and, amy, i want to get straight to that track. of course, it comes through the bahamas and as a category 4 the current track has it thursday night into early friday morning affecting parts of southeast and central florida and runs parallel and hugs along the
7:08 am
georgia. close to charleston and wilmington and, of course, where this track takes it out to sea, the national hurricane center puts this together and that is exactly where we'll go now, to the director. dr. rick knabb. and rick, as we look at this, no direct landfall but there will still be huge impact, right? >> right. we don't know for sure if matthew is going to come ashore in the u.s. starting with the potential in florida or not. it is possible that the core of matthew could come ashore in the hurricane warning area in florida, so people need to be preparing for the major possibility of a storm coming ashore. but even if the center stays offshore you could still have hurricane conditions on the coast, you don't have to be near the center of the storm to be at the center of action in land areas. >> i think that's exactly what people need to hear this morning. the heavy rain, storm surge, even though you're not right in it, it can affect you. thank you so much, dr. knabb.
7:09 am
talking about want to show it to you graphically. this is what it would look like. up to six plus inches, so you could see ten plus in some of these coastal area, you add the waves, the winds, that surge, this could be bad even if it just hugs parallel. >> we know you will be tracking it, and we'll come back to that later. right now, the race for the white house and all from the first and only debate for the vice presidential candidates with 34 days until the final votes. tim kaine and mike pence went toe-to-toe and tom llamas has more from farmville, virginia. >> reporter: two very different styles last night at the debate. senator tim kaine aggressive, forcing governor mike pence to defend donald trump's policies and his statements. the debate was heated at times but also very difficult to watch with all the interruptions. >> there's no limitation --
7:10 am
candidates sitting just inches from each other showing they, too, know how to fight. >> six types tonight i have said to governor pence i can't imagine how you can defend your running mate's position on one issue after the next. and in all six cases he's refused to defend -- >> let's -- don't put words in my mouth. >> reporter: from the start senator tim kaine playing attack dog mentioning donald trump around 165 times, spouting what sounded like rehearsed attacks. >> you want a you're hire president in hillary clinton or do you want a you're fired >> reporter: governor mike pence on defense but not losing his cool. >> well, first, let me say i appreciated you're hired, you're fired thing. senator, you have used that a whole lot, and your running mate used a lot of -- kaine kept firing regardless if it was the same attack. >> he called mexicans rapists and criminals. he called them rapists and criminals. when he says mexicans are
7:11 am
>> reporter: at one point, pence showing his frustration. >> you whipped out that mexican thing again. >> can you defend it? >> there are criminal aliens in this country, tim, who have come into this country illegally who are perpetrating violence. >> reporter: also frustrated debate moderator elaine quijano. >> you are a donald trump's apprentice. >> i think i'm still on my time. >> reporter: constantly having to break up the back and forth. >> gentlemen -- >> you can't meet -- >> the people at home cannot understand either one of you when you speak over each other. >> reporter: front and center at the debate, trump's tax issues claiming a $916 million loss in 2005. >> used it the way he was supposed to and -- >> how do you know that? you haven't seen his taxes. >> because he's created a business that's worth billions of dollars today. >> how do you know that? >> reporter: pence putting the spotlight back on kaine and clinton claiming the democrats were turning the race into an
7:12 am
way you said he said them, he still wouldn't have a fraction of the insults that hillary clinton leveled when she said that half of our supporters were a basket of deplorables. >> tom, as you pointed out, that was a pretty polished performance from mike pence and we know trump was tweeting during the debate said he thought pence did a good job but wondered if he was rankled when he did not defend trump and his record. >> reporter: it's still unclear. was saying governor mike pence clearly won that debate, and right after the debate, trump sent out a couple of tweets. this one saying, mike pence won big. we should all be proud of mike, but in the middle of the debate, he seemed to be trolling senator tim kaine. retweeting this, kaine looks like an evil crook out of the "batman" movies. >> love those retreats. thanks very much.
7:13 am
she joins us now from farmville, virginia, with the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning. i guess it's no surprise the clinton campaign is declaring victory, a big win for them too and the pin is in full effect this morning. this, tim kaine, after the debate, he showed up at a watch party, all smiles and you can see him right there. take a listen to what he told reporters after that debate. >> it was intense. >> you were awesome! it was the fastest 90 minutes of showbiz. >> reporter: yeah, showbiz. say kaine's job was one thing, he had to hold mike pence accountable for donald trump's kmi comments and his policies, and they say he did that. you heard him in tom's story talk about mexicans are rapists repeatedly and brought it up four times, a repeated line of attack but the clinton camp, one aide is saying not even pence could defend donald trump. they say that the onus was on mike pence last night to shift
7:14 am
performance, and they say he fell short of that overnight. >> one of the other big headlines from last night, were all of those interruptions, kaine taking some heat for that. >> reporter: yeah, he certainly is, even from clinton allies. you know, former chief obama strategist david axelrod said it did not serve him well but one kaine aide told me he did what a vice president is supposed to do on that stage, fought the fight, guys. they say this morning, that he took one for the team. >> all right, cecilia vega, thanks so much. >> all those interruptions are what everyone is talking about this morning and abc's jon karl is also covering the debate for us. and good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, michael. for all the talk of donald trump interrupting hillary clinton. in that first debate, these two talked over each other even more. especially tim kaine who found himself repeatedly scolded by the moderator. take a listen. >> i know you can't -- >> senator, please, this is the governor's two minutes. >> don't put my words in my mouth. i'm not defending him. i'm happy to defend him and most
7:15 am
false, and the american people know that. >> senator, please, this is governor pence's two minces. >> reporter: we crunched the numbers. pence interrupted kaine 40 times but kaine interrupted pence almost twice as often 70 times and that's almost two interruptions for every minute that pence spoke, but pence kept the fact-checkers busy. on several occasions, he denied that donald trump said things that donald trump did, in fact, say. and this moment really stood out inarguably, vladimir putin is a better leader than president obama. >> that is absolutely inaccurate. >> and i just think a guy -- >> said he's been stronger on the world stage. >> no, he said leader. >> reporter: but pence did say it and he said it less than a month ago. >> i think it's inarguable that vladimir putin has been a stronger leader in his country than barack obama has been in this country.
7:16 am
while pence will win points on style in this debate, there were several points where he was, let's just say, george, less than factual. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. let's talk about more with matthew dowd and cokie roberts and pick up on the point jon was making there. mike pence, cool, calm and collected through most of the debate. tim kaine on the attack and putting his points on the board so in the end was there a winner? >> i thinkt i think mike pence came out ahead but didn't help the ticket. didn't help donald trump. i think tim kaine didn't help himself but he helped hillary clinton. mike pence to me was a little bit like a running back that runs well with the ball but doesn't block for the quarterback and let the quarterback get sacked a number of times and that's donald trump. >> here we go with sports analogies. >> you knew it was coming. >> i think he actually -- pence actually did help with the conservatives who were nervous about donald trump. he was calm, cool, collected. he was a solid conservative. they are going to vote for trump anyway, but he probably made
7:17 am
particularly at the end where he talked about roe versus wade and women's ability to make choices themselves. >> so they were each speaking to their bases so it shows where this campaign is going in the final 34 days, matthew dowd. they're not really worried much about the voters who are sort of undecided right now. each side is really trying to speak to their base and get them energized. >> i think they decided which is probably an accurate assessment that the not going to vote. the undecideds can't stand either candidate. don't trust either and is not connected to the campaign and all about movement and watch the polls and they move based upon whose supporters are most energized. right now hillary clinton's supporters have caught up to donald trump and i don't think that changed last night. >> cokie, i wonder what donald trump can take away coming up sunday night. mike pence in many ways did what donald trump should have done, not take the bait. >> and if he had done it with the momentum he had going into that debate, he'd be in a much better place right now.
7:18 am
bait. people get under his skin and he gets mad. >> donald trump doesn't need to settle substance. he needs to figure out the right style and tone. >> this might be his last big chance sunday. >> there's two more debates, but as the debates go, the ratings drop. he needs to win this debate or it's very difficult to win this election. >> that's a town hall debate with our martha raddatz and it is going to be an interesting one for trump to handle because he can't get mad at jane q. citizen like he gets mad at us. >> thank you both very much. and of course, that presidential debate is sunday night here on abc. as cokie said martha raddatz co-moderating with anderson cooper of cnn and i'll anchor the live coverage at 9:00 eastern. now back to ginger. >> that's what we'll do. anyone from virginia to maine, this is for you. the latest computer modeling taking that trough we've been talking about and pushing it out to sea so bad for the southeast. better as far as northeast new england.
7:19 am

7:30 am
welcome back to "gma." you are looking live at hurricane matthew on the move. this storm headed towards the u.s. after hitting haiti and cuba. now barrelling north. millions of americans preparing to evacuate facing threats of heavy wind and potentially devastating floods. we have team coverage of the storm this morning. >> all across the southeast president and face-off overnight, vice presidential debate, tim kaine and mike pence going head to head taking aim at donald trump and hillary clinton. just 34 days until the election. a new report is out about yahoo! allowing use of the government to spy on its customers and scanning hundreds
7:31 am
government demand. yahoo! said it complies with the laws of the united states. major league baseball playoffs started with a bang. toro toronto blue jays and edwin encarnacion hit a walkoff home run leading his team to an 11th inning victory and putting them into the series and tonight the san francisco giants will take on the new york mets. >> knew in an instant. >> oh, yeah. >> our executive producer told us the yankees are where they belong, out of the playoffs. >> ooh. >> why did you just throw michael under the bus? >> michael korn, that guy. >> you know wherhe okay. we have a lot to get to, but first, let's get the latest on that hot car trial, where a father is facing murder charges for leaving his son in a scorching suv for hours and now video showing his reaction to the death is raising big questions and steve osunsami has the details from the courtroom. >> reporter: in court this morning, jurors will hear more from witnesses who saw the moment when justin ross harris bailed into this parking lot on his way home from work. this was in june of 2014.
7:32 am
brakes screeching and just yelling going on. >> reporter: during opening statements harris' attorney says this is when he discovers the lifeless body of his son in the backseat of his suv still strapped in a rear facing car seat after more than seven hours in the hot car. >> ross loved that little boy more than anything. cooper's death was an accident. >> reporter: harris cried in court reliving the day, with murder and second degree child cruelty pleading not guilty saying it was an accident. >> he has always acknowledged this was his fault, that he was responsible but what you're going to see during this trial is that responsible isn't the same thing as criminal. >> reporter: but police are testifying that harris didn't look remorseful and shared video from inside this police cruiser where they say he seemed more concerned about the air-conditioning than his dead son. >> feels like i'm not getting -- >> the air is all the way up.
7:33 am
vehicle. >> reporter: harris' attorneys point to another piece of video from the same cruiser. >> oh, my god, oh, my god. >> reporter: prosecutors say harris left his son to die on purpose because he wanted a child-free life and had been sexting with other women that day. they say he knew the heat could kill after watching videos online. a point his lawyers deny. >> you see a child left alone in a vehicle, please call 911. >> reporter: harris is now divorced, but his ex-wife is about to take is stand, and share that she too thinks this was an accident. >> our thanks to steve osunsami for that report. joining us now nancy grace, the hoegs of -- host of "nancy grace" on hln. and, nancy, so many dramatic moments in day one of testimony. what stood out most to you? >> well, i find it very ironic that he, justin ross harris started crying during his
7:34 am
realized, realized his son was dead, he never shed a tear. another thing that struck me is this, maybe i'm projecting but i recently lost my father and i remember there in the hospital they said, okay, you can leave now and there was just something innate, i did not want to leave him. justin ross harris had no problems leaving his child's body. he left him there and i find that very, very disturbing. a lot has been made of justin ross harris' sexting including allegedly to an underage girl. do i like that? no. i want to hold my nose at it, but that does not a murder make. what will be more probative or helping the state prove their case is if they can come through with what was alleged in some of the search warrants that he had actually been searching. how long does it take an animal
7:35 am
was he searching a new life, child-free? and another thing, i drove that exact drive that he took that morning. he went into chick-fil-a with his son. not a drive-through. they all saw the son, cooper, happy, laughing. put him back in the car, he had less than two minutes to drive. what, he forgot his son was alive in two minutes? how can that be? it can't. >> so you hit all the key piece the prosecution. in terms of the defense, you heard in steve's report that harris' ex-wife is going to take the stand. what do you think that will do to bolster the account? she's expected to say it is an accident and supports her ex-husband. >> okay, this is what i would do. if i were the prosecution i would not call her and i'll tell you why. because if you let the defense call her, then you'll have her on cross-examination. they kind of threw down the gauntlet and said, look, the state is not going to call her,
7:36 am
i'd rather have her on cross-examination. what do i think of her? "a," she says she -- she doesn't believe this was intentional. it was an accident. that her husband that she knows so well would never have done that. well, did she know he was with hookers? did she know he was cheating? if she didn't know that much, how does lie to save his own skin? that's what i would argue. >> a lot coming up in the court case. nancy grace, thanks so much for joining us, as always. >> thank you. michael, you got the big board. >> i got the big board. coming up, ben stiller's secret health battle. how he discovered he had cancer. the test he says saved his life. we're back in two minutes to talk about that. >> yeah. on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo.
7:37 am
with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for

7:39 am
richard besser right here and the story plays off ben stiller. he's opened up about a recent bout with prostate cancer. diagnosed two years ago, aggressive form of cancer and he talked about it with howard stern. >> at first, i didn't know what was going to happen. i was scared. you know, i was scared. i didn't know -- you know, the one thing it does, it just stops everything in your life when you get a diagnosis of cancer. i was really lucky. as i learned pore about prostate cancer, i learned that, you know, i was someone who had a case that could be treated. there are a lot of people kwho who can't. >> because it's too late. >> they discover it too late. >> so, rich, he says he was really lucky. this test was necessary for him. he wouldn't have discovered it. otherwise, but there's a real debate about this test in so he >> he had a psa test, a screening test for prostate cancer that would have been high. they would have done a biopsy and found this. but this is a really tricky question. you know, there's no medical organization that recommends that all men have this done and the government panel recommends
7:40 am
here's why. most prostate cancer is very slow growing and will cause no harm, but this test detects all prostate cancer, and if you have positive and surgery, and you're convinced it saved your life but the studies looking at psa testing showed little if any effect at all in deaths from prostate cancer and the surgery and radiation from prostate cancer very high complication men are left with sexual dysfunction or other problems. >> there's so much controversy surround this test. what do you think? what do you think a man should do. >> you'll weigh it differently. people will hear ben's story and say, wow, i want that test. you never want to have this unless you sit down with your doctor and say, let's talk about the pros and cons. a lot of people say, just go the test and they get a result, and they say, it's a little high. what should we do? they say, i didn't think about that before.
7:41 am
aggressive and it's not absolutely essential but what's the harm in taking the test? >> the problem is that 80% to 90% of men told when they have a high value, go on to have the bio biopsy. why not, let's do that test and if shows a problem almost all men have their prostate out. not just a blood test, it leads to other things that could have harm. >> wow. well, tricky. i got to think about that. star maria sharapova. her two-year doping ban reduced to 15 months and overnight the grand slam winner sounding off about it on "charlie rose." take a look. >> i was so shocked in the first place because i was taking a substance that was completely legal for ten years and then all of a sudden i'm sitting in my bedroom, i get an e-mail from the itf saying, i had this violation. i just thought how could i have not known this? there were so many ways i could
7:42 am
>> well, abc news contributor christine brennan joining us now. christine, you hear what maria sharapova said, i didn't know. there's so many ways i should have known but she was suspended. do you think they did the right thing by reducing her sentence? >> michael, i do not. i believe that she should have served the full two-year suspension, rules are rules. if you want to have rules and want to have drug testing, she twice failed the drug test for it and this notion she says, i didn't know, how could i have known? in december of last year telling her this drug was about to be banned. she took it for ten years. it's a performance enhancer. now she says she's opening e-mails. i like maria sharapova a lot and she's great for the game but this is the dog ate my homework. >> isn't it a debate over that? over whether or not this is a performance enhancer? you say it is. she says it isn't and, rich, i want to bring you back in on
7:43 am

8:42 am
things we'll learn about this, this is not frances your character is not carrie bradshaw. >> no, she's i think it's important that she not be carrie bradshaw. got to play that character for 12 sublime years written by extraordinary writers and telling a very specific story and so i want very much to find and feel i did find another woman who is equally as compelling, >> pretty complicated. >> complicated. her life choices have been radically different than carrie's and i think it's a story no less appealing though it's very different. a less buoyant portrait of this city and environments but i think it's a story that relatable even if you don't identify. i think you can understand this particular kind of strife and
8:43 am
i was working so i didn't get to see the premiere. >> you had a good excuse. >> ali said it's this great balance of funny and emotional and loved the music. the music is a character. >> the music is beautiful. >> but did say it rings so true with everything she's seen in her life in her friends all around. >> i'm so happy to hear that. that's how all this began about four years ago i went to my partner. we have a company at hbo and said, you know, i'm are -- for the most part people are in long-term committed relationships whether in the traditional sense or married. you know, and observing institution and everybody was at a different place in their relationship and i recognized that there are so many stories about the american marriage and the american commitment and probably true elsewhere. but we were focusing on life
8:44 am
contemplated divorce, survived divorce, didn't survive divorce, children making divorce that much more complex and painful. people that have contemplated affairs. had affair, the marriage survived affairs despite, you know, the marriage didn't survive so i think these are all stories that are happening. smart people making not great choices, you know. >> but meeting each other even when coming apart. >> this is the greatest discovery about divorce, no one for the most part equipped to divorce, right? we're not, i because hopefully we don't do it and we do it once but what i discovered about divorce was that you need the other person to divorce. like the whole idea of separating really requires you to actually hold like stand next to this person and try to reach consensus, be civilized but you are desperately in need of this other person which i find bizarre and challenging and maybes for great storytelling.
8:45 am
talk to you. iffers time in the studio. >> i know. i feel i'm like -- [ applause ] >> where is brittany? >> britain. >> brittany. >> hi, brittany. >> hi, sarah. >> nice to meet you. >> nice to meet you. i have a question. >> okay. >> what is your favorite set you've ever been on. >> brittany, this set.

8:46 am
so many years ago. long before you were born. but i think those of us who choose to live here are sort of involuntarily pulled towards the promise and sort of a lot of what we're feeling in this room is what the city gives us so i have endless memories and looking forward to more. >> we're feeling what you're giving us. thank you for coming in. >> thanks, georg up, "the birth of a nation" star

8:49 am
>> right. she on. with the right teacher. like that. work a long time. >> there it is. 2.75. >> should be a shame to watch it go waste for a little pride. >> what the hell would you know what's a little and what's a lot, huh? >> man, you know, you play a slave owner which in a lot of ways is a villain in that time. >> sure. >> i guess in our country's history and it was -- it's so but i'm just curious, i know you. when you're on set and doing that, how do you get away from that? >> it's hard, man. it was not -- it was not a -- it was not a fun movie to make in the sense of, you know, jokey-jokey. it deals with really heavy subject matter but we owed it to the people involved in the rebellion and owed it to our country's history to be honest and show the reality of what
8:50 am
>> you made this transformation not physically. >> yeah. >> the hair, the teeth, everything else. did that make it easier for you to get away from the character once you weren't on set. >> yeah, it was just a mess. i had a crazy beard and horrible fake teeth that nate maked me. there was a picture of me on the wall and someone doodled on my teeth like someone draws a mustache. you forgot to take this down. no, that's what we're going to do to your teeth to town. >> i have to live with it every day, my friend. but the one thing everybody says about this film that's important, the one word that continues to come up. why do you think the film is important for people to see. >> i think it introduces a lot of interesting things in the conversation of race and shows the beginning and origin of how race relations work in this country. a lot of things we don't realize whether it's, you know, the origins of policing which people were catching runaway slaves
8:51 am
you have to deal with it. >> makes you emotionally raw. >> you say it's not a happy set. heavy subject matter but what were some things you were able to do to lighten it up. >> i -- funny story. i actually bought a pig from one of the extras. they showed up -- if that will supposed to bring a pig and brings this hog and it's enormous. it's like -- it's almost as tall as i am. it's -- nate looks at it and says, it makes me nervous. if it runs wild we won't be able to get this thing and bigger than pigs were back then. the man was like, i didn't want this pig. i guess i got to drive it all the way home now and i said, so, wait. would you sell it. he said, how much. i said, how much do you want for it.
8:52 am
i was like, dude, here's 300 buck, thanks for the pig. and we had it for a little bit then i cooked it for the whole crew and we had a big barbecue. >> yep. >> i know. you know i'm not going to judge you because growing up i had a pet pig too and the family enjoyed the pig. >> see. i understand that man. congratulation, your next big project, you and your wife, another baby. >> we have another baby on the >> there you are. beautiful couple. >> yeah, yeah. >> but you messed up and gave away the gender on on "kimmel." >> maybe i did. maybe i didn't. okay, fine, maybe i did. totally did. i'm not so good with the secret thing which my wife enjoys. >> congratulations on the baby. congratulations on the movie. this movie is very, very -- it's incredible movie. you're amazing and "the birth of a nation" opens nationwide friday.
