good morning, america. breaking overnight, mud, fire and frightening flash floods. extreme conditions across the country, over two feet of snow. hundreds fleeing fast-moving fires. the may weather that has the season turned upside down. sam tracking it all. runway run in. a jumbo jet smacks into a commuter plane at one of the country's busiest airports chipping each other on the tarmac and setting off major alarms. >> got some serious tail damage. his tail is totaled. >> that's not the only one. what's going on on our nation's runways? breaking details on that sabotage at starbucks. why did this highly educated chemist allegedly lace drinks, so much poison police say it was enough to kill someone. the employee who spotted her speaks out. reese witherspoon live and exclusive in times square.
she's here talking one on one about the surprising moment that landed her in the headlines and her brand new movie role only on "gma." and good morning, everyone. robin off today. great to have elizabeth vargas here. a lot of news to get to including new, breaking details on the boston bombing investigation. three friends of the younger suspect are now in custody. >> they are classmates of dzhokhar tsarnaev. all accused of lying to investigators and conspiring to destroy evidence of the bombing. we'll get right to that, but first we'll have the very latest on the wild weather that we don't expect to see in may, snowstorms, wildfire, it's unbelievable. >> all on one map. what's unusual about this is may can be a very a changeable month but usually we're settling into spring. this is everything but spring. there's very little spring on the board. there's an awful lot of
summer-like weather in the east and west and a dip in the middle of the country because there's a block off the eastern seaboard. you see the warm pattern on the east. temperatures on the west warm as well. normally pleasant 65 in the bay area and record-setting snowfalls, you really -- you can understand it on the map but it's better to see what people are living under. take a look at the pictures. second day of may and part of the country is in early summer. the rest, in never-ending winter with record may snowfall from colorado to minnesota. 28 inches in parts of northern colorado. >> typical spring snow, a lot of moisture. really heavy snow, tough to shovel. >> reporter: temperatures in that region approaching record lows as thick blankets of ice coat the highways resulting in pileups like this on i-225 near denver. southeast, total washout along the gulf coast. water up 10 inches in some tampa streets. while in clermont, florida,
a mud slide, sending three feet of mud crashing through the windows. in key west one couple refused to bow to the elements by going ahead with their wedding. but that decision led to the jolt of their lives. while in mississippi, thunderstorms brought flash flooding from nearly a foot of rain. meanwhile, in lubbock, texas, violent winds, up to 50 miles an hour blowing out car windows and knocking trees into homes. >> i go out of town and come back and there's a tree in my house. it was unbelievable. >> and we say extreme, it's all extremes, not just temperatures but precipes. some areas have, some areas have not. the record snow in colorado, 28 inches of snow. we're talking about, remember, a may snowstorm. then denver coming in with more than 5 inches also a daily record. then look west. where there hasn't been any moisture, there isn't any moisture and approaching the fire season. this is creating a really difficult situation with almost record high temperatures, strong
winds and extremely dry ground about a month before fire season. our david wright is in banning, california, to show you what that month before fire season looks like. david? >> reporter: good morning, sam. what you see here are the consequences of an early fire season. yesterday afternoon that was the garage of this house and that gray mess there was a restored triumph sports car. now the garage is gone and the whole house is gone. so far the wildfire here has consumed about 3,000 acres, fueled by winds that have at times hit 40 miles an hour. strong winds, high temperatures and dry weather are all combining to create this firestorm about 90 miles east of los angeles. >> this fire is being pushed very much by this wind that we're feeling out here, hot, dry and very challenging today. >> reporter: more than 420 firefighters are battling the blaze. by day, dozens of planes and helicopters dropping water and retardant. by night, with shovels and hoses looking to make headway.
>> any little spark or ember that gets across the line will take off and run on us again. >> reporter: some residents are taking matters into their own hands. >> we've had fires up here before but nothing this close since i've been here. >> reporter: jerry prather and his neighbor grabbed this garden hose and sprayed down trees keeping the fires at bay until fire crews arrived. this home owner wasn't so lucky. >> backed out of the driveway. wasn't worried what was in the house, knew i had to leave. >> reporter: this car races to escape the fire zone, the road completely engulfed in smoke. that's how quickly some had to get out. >> it's close to my house and i'm worried and the wind is really bad right now. >> reporter: this particular blaze is now 40% contained but the real worry today are these santa ana winds. they could mean major danger across it is region. >> could be a dicey day, thanks very much.
to the new arrests in the boston bombing investigation. three of dzhokhar tsarnaev's best friends have been charged with obstructing justice and lying to investigators and pierre thomas has been tracking the latest. good to have you in the studio. >> good morning. we've been working the story all night. there's an intense international investigation under way to figure out if these young men are misguided youths trying to help a friend or members of a terror cell. the three friends of the boston bombers were led to jail in shackles late wednesday after appearing in boston federal court. robel phillipos, dias kadrybayev and azamat tazhayakov seen posing in the photograph with dzhokhar last year are facing charges of obstruction of justice and making false statements to the fbi. >> i know they are good people. i don't believe what they're saying. >> reporter: this morning court documents say the men intended to slow down a major terrorist investigation by destroying key evidence. it began three days after the attack and just hours after the press conference where the fbi released images of the marathon bombers, dzhokhar's friends began to suspect he was involved.
>> it is extremely important to contact us with any information regarding the identities of suspect one, suspect two and their location. >> reporter: at 8:43 p.m., investigators say one of the roommates texts dzhokhar saying he looks like the suspect on television. dzhokhar allegedly responds, lol, laugh out loud. you better not text me. come to my room and take whatever you want. within minutes, the fbi says kadrybayev texted his roommate tazhayakov saying have you seen the news? the men reach out and meet at dzhokhar's dorm room. room and inside discovered a laptop and backpack containing hollowed out fireworks. by 11:00 p.m., investigators say they decide to leave with the items and throw them away in this dumpster behind their apartment. one of the men's attorneys say they were just helping a friend and were not truly clear on what he may have done. >> he did not know that those items were involved in a bombing or of any interest in a bombing or any evidential value.
>> reporter: while there's no evidence the young men knew about the attack, the fbi be wants to know what they were doing before the attack happened. as one law enforcement official told me last night, they lied to us once, we will not trust, we will verify, george, elizabeth. >> taking no chances. pierre, thanks very much. the morning's other top stories including a near miss in newark last night. >> terrifying there. good morning to all of you. we begin there, big scare in newark, new jersey. two planes colliding on the runway running into each other. you see the damage to the wing of one of the planes right there. it wasn't the only mishap, by the way, at an airport overnight. abc's david kerley has much more now on the growing safety concerns this morning. >> reporter: they were taxiing for takeoff. >> scandinavian just clipped the regional jet. >> reporter: at newark airport a big wide-body scandinavian airlines flight headed to norway swiped a smaller united jet. >> got some serious tail damage. >> it was a big bang, we all
kind of shook in our seats. >> reporter: both jets were headed to the runway, the united express jet going to nashville in front when the bigger sas jet turned right. its left wing sliced into the smaller jet's tail. >> apparently it did affect the tail end of the plane in some way. all of a sudden there were 10 large fire trucks around us. >> reporter: then just hours later, another ground mishap. this time in chicago when a polish jetliner clipped wings with a lufthansa cargo jet. no one was injured in either incident. it appears both were low speed encounters. much different than this at jfk two years ago when a regional jet was spun around like a top by a much larger aircraft. and here's the worry. these so-called runway incursions are a concern but the number of incidents keep going up. there are about 1,000 a year and in the first three months of this year, a 16% increase in incursions. >> thanks for that report.
meanwhile, what started as a peaceful may day protest in seattle turned into violence and chaos. as the march was winding down, some demonstrators suddenly began throwing rocks, bottles and metal pipes at police smashing windows as well. police, as you can see here, battle back with flash-bang grenades and pepper spray. in the melee, nearly 20 people were arrested. an american detained in north korea has been sentenced to 15 years hard labor. kenneth bae of washington was arrested while leading a tour of chinese businessmen in hostile acts. his fate could be a new bargaining chip for north korea in its diplomatic standoff with the u.s. and his hit song began an anthem throughout the '90s. this morning the world is remembering chris kelly. ♪ jump jump daddy mac will make you jump jump ♪ >> mac daddy, as he was known, half of the duo kris kross whose
megahit "jump" spent eight weeks atop the charts discovered singing in a mall when they were just 13 years old. kelly died in atlanta of an apparent drug overdose. he was 34 years old. and it is one of the cathedrals in sports but could wrigley field soon be without its beloved cubs? while showing off plans for a half-billion dollar renovation of wrigley field, the cubs owner wednesday threatened to take the team elsewhere. he is demanding big new video screens with ads to help generate revenue. those poor cubs. he says if his plans are voted down, he may just pack up the team and leave. >> that sounds a little bit like i'm going to take my ball and go home. >> yeah. you know what, we may see a unicorn run through the studios today. >> the neighbors don't like it, huh? neighbors can't see if he puts up -- >> if he puts up the big screen it takes away some of the -- it is right there.
>> people go and have all these parties in the brownstones and can't see over -- i love wrigley field. >> i'll let them know. >> i'm sure he doesn't care. >> all right. thanks so much, josh. we turn now to the latest on that bizarre case of the woman who allegedly tried to plant poisoned orange juice at a california starbucks. she is now under arrest and the employee who caught her in the act is speaking out. abc's neal karlinsky has the latest on the story. >> reporter: this morning police want to know why a highly educated chemist for one of the world's top pharmaceutical companies would allegedly swap out juice for sale at this starbucks with sabotaged versions laced with poison. jacqueline, a starbucks employee who didn't want her full name used, tells abc news, she ran after the woman after a customer spotted her taking the bottles out of a bag, one orange juice, one mango fiber and placing them in the display area. >> i brought the bottles back to my manager.
it smelled like nail polish remover and some type of alcohol. i just knew it wasn't the orange juice. >> reporter: police say the bottles contained juice mixed with rubbing alcohol was enough to kill anyone who took a drink. >> the hazmat team was able to go ahead and look at the contents of the amounts in the bottle. they were lethal doses. >> reporter: the suspect is no novice mixing chemicals. ramineh behbehanian is a chemist for a subsidiary of johnson & johnson. her linkedin profile notes her expertise in drug delivery and controlled release technologies. police say they don't have a motive but the woman did mention something about her dealings with starbucks staff. we were unable to reach her for comment. >> if you look at someone who is high functioning in society that would do something like this, it lets you know how much of their reality has been distorted. >> reporter: starbucks says no other bottles were tampered with. the chemist with what seemed a promising career now faces
attempted murder charges when she is arraigned later today. for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, seattle. now we turn to an edgy new ad that has pepsi apologizing right now. critics call the online commercial for mountain dew racist so pepsi pulled the ad and abc's linsey davis is here with more on the provocative marketing campaign that pushed the envelope too far. good morning, linsey. >> not only calling it racist but the most racist commercial ever. critics say it portrays racial stereotypes and makes light of violence towards women. it was all created by a black man who says the story line is so bizarre, it was never meant to be taken seriously. >> i know my rights. >> reporter: the premise of these online ads is absurd enough. >> give it to me. >> reporter: a crazy goat who becomes obsessed with mountain dew. >> give me more. i want it. >> reporter: they've gotten 2 million views since march and now there's a sequel. >> come on, which one is he? >> reporter: but this morning
some are calling it the most racist commercial ever. >> it's me. you should have gave me some more. >> reporter: the ad features that battered waitress now on crutches being urged to identify a suspect out of a lineup of black men. >> you better not snitch on a player. >> this ad is destructive because it further pushes forward the stereotype of black men as being violent criminals. >> reporter: the backlash growing so big, pepsico just pulled the 60-second spot saying "we apologize for this video and take full responsibility." the ad was directed by tyler, the creator, an african-american rapper, producer and comedian. his publicist tells abc news it was never tyler's intention to offend. for those who know and respect tyler, he's known for pushing boundaries and challenging stereotypes through humor. this isn't the first time a major corporation has come under attack for pushing the envelope with an online only ad. just last month, the conservative christian group one
million moms urged kmart to pull their online ad promoting free shipping. >> ship my pants, right here? >> reporter: far from pulling it kmart started airing it on cable tv. >> i just shipped my bed. >> reporter: the word dew is apparently a reference to the do it slogan but this ad is one thing they won't be doing anymore. one thing tyler's publicist was quick to point out is the black men in the lineup were all tyler's personal friends. elizabeth, george. >> not sure that helps. how did it get through the filter? >> amazing. wow, okay. >> sam, you got the latest on the heavy rains drenching the south. >> it really is from one extreme to the other. we talked about temperatures and we talked about the snow and we talked about the dry and the fires in california so now let's talk about the rains. a big, heavy pocket of rain and this is going in areas that don't need it. where we put the yellow mark the heaviest concentration 3 to 5
inches of rain from memphis to st. louis and north into central illinois, those are the areas that were flooding just last week. very high river flooding and then the other yellow area in florida. we had 10 inches of rain in mobile, 6 inches of rain in palm beach county yesterday. these are areas, once again, getting pounded with 3 to 5 inches of rain. all of that just sitting there, another day today. quick look at where spring is if you're looking for it on the map, it's been gorgeous in new york city yesterday. will be again, boston included. washington, d.c. i think even charleston and raleigh probably looking pretty good. that's the weather around the nation. your local forecast 30 seconds away.
>> let's just see if we got it all, record heat, record snow, record rain all today. >> check, check, check. >> and fires already beginning. >> right. >> wow. looking forward to record nice weather, sam. all right. now let's move on to a new cold war. an ice cream war raging in upstate new york. sno kone joe versus mr.
ding-a-ling. >> what? >> police say the competition has gotten very ugly. abc's john muller has the story. ♪ >> reporter: this morning, the gloves are off in gloversville, new york. >> ding-a-ling just gave us the middle finger. >> reporter: after an all-out turf war between sno kone joe and mr. ding-a-ling has turned criminal. >> who sways over the five points? >> reporter: like a challenge right out of "gangs of new york" joshua malatino and his girlfriend amanda scott were arrested tuesday charged with harassing and stalking their out-of-town competitor who runs a mr. ding-a-ling truck. 34-year-old malatino and his 21-year-old girlfriend were shadowing the rival truck's driver, blasting their music yelling "free ice cream" in an attempt to pry away his customers. >> he had two ice cream trucks and they were both engaged in that course of conduct.
>> reporter: according to reports, malatino began threatening his rival telling him "you don't have a chance, this is my town" proclaiming "i own this town." >> we got to set our own mark and enforce it. >> reporter: like a snow cone kingpin out of "scarface" it's not the first time malatino has tried to freeze out the competition. >> we have addressed issues similar to this with mr. malatino and his legal counsel cautioning him against this type of behavior in the past. >> guys, we reached out to the attorney for sno kone joe and his girlfriend. he had no comment. if convicted they could face three months of cold, hard time. >> ding, ding. coming up on "gma," a marathon day in the jodi arias trial. closing arguments now. dan and nancy weigh in live. reese witherspoon is joining us live for an exclusive interview just ahead. and can you sleep in your cosmetics? our reporter tries out the latest beauty trend. will she still look like this after a night of sleep?

reese witherspoon right there on the red carpet for her brand-new movie "mud" getting lots of aclaim for her performance and matthew mcconaughey and will join us live and exclusively on "good morning america." robin off. great to have elizabeth vargas here. i saw it last night. it really is remarkable. she's amazing and your man is incredible. >> thank you for referencing my man. >> your man. >> getting lots of really good buzz. >> it's a beautiful film. we said it's like "the outsiders" meets "huck finn." also ahead the final witnesses who have taken the stand in the jodi arias trial. it was a dramatic and very long last day of testimony. dan and nancy will weigh in live as the case finally maybe later
this week will go to the jury. also, miley cyrus as perhaps we've never seen her before opening up in an interview. how she says she's struggling to balance career and personal life. a struggle we all face right now. really special "deals & steals" ahead. these are our favorites. from oprah's big "o" list. these are really great things. you do not want to miss it. my computer is at the ready. >> i have my eye on box number three. >> oh. >> did you peek? >> i did. i couldn't help it. right away this morning to the latest on the jodi arias testimony. it has concluded. ahead, instructions from the judge closing arguments from both sides and then, of course, the jury will begin deliberating as early as this weekend. abc's ryan owens has the very latest as the trial heads into its final act. >> reporter: even the woman on trial for her life struggled to stay awake on the final marathon day of testimony. the last witness didn't finish
until almost 9:00 at night. >> i wasn't sure if you switched topics or we were still on -- >> no, we're done with tigers and bears. >> reporter: the testimony bordered on the bizarre as two psychologists, neither of whom ever met or talked to jodi sparred about what drove the 32-year-old to shoot and repeatedly stab her ex-boyfriend travis alexander and make up so many stories. >> the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you god. >> i do. >> reporter: the defense hoped this neuropsychologist would convince the jury that arias was a battered woman who killed in self-defense but what they might remember most is that he spilled water not once, but twice all over the witness stand. >> sorry about that. i was doing so well. >> reporter: while this real-life drama drags on, hollywood can't wait. the lifetime channel has already started shooting the tv movie "dirty little secrets: the jodi
arias story." the lead actors look strikingly similar to the victim and to his killer. >> travis svralexander is worki his magic. >> reporter: they too are riveted by the trial and waiting for their story to finally have an ending. >> the fact that the trial is still ongoing actually makes me care more about the story. >> it'll be interesting to see if the trial is ended by the time we finish the movie. >> reporter: the real courtroom drama resumes later this morning with closing arguments. finally. for "good morning america," ryan owens, abc news, phoenix. >> time now for our legal team to weigh in. "gma" legal analyst dan abrams and nancy grace, host of her own show on hln. nancy, you've been on the trial from the start. who is going to play you in the lifetime movie? >> you know what, a lot of people have asked me about the lifetime movie. bottom line, i'm more concerned about what's happening in the real courtroom than what's going to be on a movie after the
verdict. you know, we were all up last night till about 3:00 waiting to digest all of the testimony. but i'm sure that jury was wide awake just like we were. >> so i can see the dryness in your voice. you don't think that last day made any difference? >> well, i think it was interesting that they tried to catch the medical examiner in a snafu in the autopsy report. the defense made the grave mistake by bringing on a shrink psychologist to talk about the bullet injury to the brain suggesting it did not go through the frontal lobe of the brain and the significance is if it didn't, travis alexander could still be chasing jodi arias even with a gunshot wound to the head. that's ridiculous. you got to have an m.d., a medical examiner, for instance, to talk about that so that was a big boo-boo in the late night hours by the defense. >> dan, closing arguments coming up then go inside the jury room. take us inside that room and on
a trial like this, do you think that -- at the end the jury goes with their gut on whether they like or believe arias or go through the evidence. >> sometimes people underestimate what juries do in long trials. yes, occasionally there's an o.j. simpson case where you have a nine-month trial and three or four-hour deliberation. either what happens is, number one, the jurors go in and take an initial vote. a lot of the time you see them go in and say, what do you think? that doesn't always remain the same by the time they leave. other times they won't take a vote at the outset and start piecing the evidence together. the difference in this case is it's not a whodunit, so they don't need to piece together all of these evidence to say, oh, it's -- the question is, why did she do it? and i think as a result, that's a different kind of analysis that the jury is going to have to go through and as a result, i would think that they would probably start by giving each other an indication of what they think about her guilt in terms of the crime. >> nancy, given the point that
dan just made -- >> a pretty good idea why, though. i got a pretty good idea why. after she had sex with him all day long he told her he's going to take another woman to cancun, oops. i shot him and stabbed him to death. that's what happened. >> well, nancy, that's interesting, though, if that's the case and what you believe, that kind of cuts away a little bit against premeditation, doesn't it? >> absolutely not. because bottom line, when she goes to see him, she crosses the desert in a fake car that she rented, the tag upside down, dyes her hair first, carries gas cans so she doesn't have to stop at a gas station and leave a trail, turns off her cell phone so she can't be triangulated to go and change his mind about the cancun trip. that was the marathon sex day, well, it didn't work. surprisingly -- >> that's the most -- >> to manipulate a man. >> the most important thing in the case as far as i'm concerned, can the prosecutors convince this jury of the things that nancy just laid out?
in addition to the fact that a 25 caliber gun was stolen from her grandparents' home and it was a 25 caliber bullet that killed him. those are all the issues i think together that focus on premeditation. if these jurors believe that jodi arias is in big trouble. if these jurors have questions, even a couple of them have questions about premeditation, that's a huge win for jodi arias >> that's the point. only one or two need to have questions. >> right, well, to hang the jury potentially and that's why the deliberations in a case like this become so important because they're not going to be fighting over who did it. they'll be focusing on very, very minute details of what happened here. >> okay, dan, nancy, thanks very much. let's get the weather from sam. >> hey, george, it's hard to see the beauty in minnesota when it's covered in 13 inches of heavy, wet snow, the difference in spring and winter 12340e, winter it's dry, fluffy snow and spring snow has so much moisture in it it's taking tree lines down.
plus it's hard to move and shovel and get out of the way and there's more of it, by the way, i know. i don't have much good news. take a look at the southern area of the map. oklahoma city isn't getting snow. if they did it would be the latest snowfall ever recorded in oklahoma city but there may be a flake or two in that area. wichita, as well, kansas city, omaha, take a look at those areas, getting snow. into the northeast where there's spring, one corner which may not see much of it because this area of low pressure is sitting offshore and the flow will be cooler and cloudier from rhode island all the way up toward the maine coast and maybe into central maine. everybody el >> a glorious lingering look at the big board all brought to you

do that? >> we hope so. >> what's it like for you to see that moment in your family's history? it was so difficult for you. >> it's emotional. i don't think i've ever seen that just because i couldn't watch. i couldn't be there. i was not functioning that night. >> it doesn't look real. it doesn't seem like it was real in the moment because i still don't think of it as being real like it all happened. it's interesting to see. >> i'm glad it's past and we're here now. >> i didn't see that. i saw them the next day in prison and the thing that i thought -- >> they were putting on a brave face. >> yeah, and that's the insane thing. i didn't know what to expect. i was completely distraught. i hadn't slept all night. they were trying to get me to take antidepressants and it was just like leave me alone please and when i got there and i sat down with them, i didn't know what to say. like i didn't know what to do and it was actually delaney,
delaney of all -- she was -- like my littlest sister, this child who just told me, looked at me with a straight face, it's going to be okay. i was like, oh, my god. >> you know, you've said, amanda, that you still suffer from panic attacks. what sets them off for you? what makes that happen? >> i mean, it can be something as simple as a movie that -- i watched a movie recently in which there was an italian dialect and one of the words that i heard -- [ speaking a foreign language ] >> which means essentially come to the window so i can talk to you, it was what prisoners would say to each other to come to the bars so that they could talk to each other across the hall. i heard someone saying that and i couldn't breathe. and it's -- >> okay. >> it can be anything. >> if you google the name
"amanda knox," you get 7.1 million hits. you all know better than anybody that hundreds of thousands of those are not kind. some of them viciously unkind. >> uh-huh. >> doug prespreston wrote it's become a cybermom not unlike the witch hunts of medieval europe." how do you handle the strong emotions people still have about you and your innocence or guilt? >> you know, i'd say that they obviously don't know all of the factors in the case and all of the pieces of evidence and the fact that there is a total lack of evidence and it seems that they just have hatred in their bodies. >> but does it bother you? >> absolutely. >> this is your beloved daughter. >> absolutely. >> of course, it does. >> and it bothers me to think that they know me. that's one thing that baffles my mind is that people talk about me as if they know, like they're in the know about who i am when
no one's ever been able to speak with me and know -- >> they know her personality. >> i tend to stay away from it and i guess someone told me, no matter what, everybody has -- there's, unfortunately, people out there that are kind of filled with hate and they vent that anonymously through the internet. it's an interesting kind of phenomenon that i think there needs to be conversation about. >> i think there will be. kurt and eta, deanna, so wonderful to see you under so much happier conditions. >> thank you so much. >> amanda, nice to finally meet you. >> yes. >> all these years of covering you. all right. good luck with the book. "waiting to be heard" is on store shelves now. let's go outside and check with sam for the final check of the weather. >> elizabeth vargas, we are outside in times square. i do have to say, lara is eating all the food for the segment coming up next. where are you from? >> christine anthony, houston, texas. >> did i surprise you? >> yeah. >> wait, i wasn't ready for that. wait, it's your birthday. your name. >> vicki.

seems. >> well, i decided not to play him villainously but to try and play him as a man who has a profound belief in his own sense of righteousness, that's what's terrifying about these people who hack into our airwaves and broadcast to us and they have a totally almost benign passivity about them and that was my juggle. >> you do so, again, in a -- there was a line where your speech patterns are compared to a baptist preacher. >> yes. >> and i know you said there's a lesson here. read the script and read the whole script because's how you based his speech. >> absolutely. my dear colleague, robert downey jr. refers to my speech patterns as a baptist preacher then i also read in the screenplay that i prefer to call myself a teacher. i actually say those lines myself and in the script there's that -- it's all about the writing. >> sure. >> beautiful rhythmic speech
patterns that i can get inside a word and stretch it -- the word almost loses its meaning but becomes a threat. it was a great acting exercise. >> quickly, robert said earlier this week these movies are only as good as their bad guys. was it fun? was it as fun as it appeared to become this -- >> let me go right back at robert. i'm only as good as the company i keep. he is a magnificent leading man and on the set he was extraordinary. the new guys you mentioned in the team, myself included, were made so welcome and we were team players within seconds which is a great, you know, great attribute for a team to have and shows on the screen. >> it does and becomes something greater than itself. wonderful to have you here. >> great to be here. >> best of luck. >> thank you. >> with the film. again, it is "iron man 3" and opens tomorrow. straight ahead here, the
