7:42 am
since the 1990s, painkillers like vicodin and percocet have become household names, often prescribed to treat severe pain following an injury or major surgery. the number of deaths from abusing those kind of drugs has soared since 2001. the centers for disease control is now urging doctors to reconsider whether prescription painkillers are really necessary in certain cases. >> the point is that they work great in the short term. they don't work very well if used daily over many weeks. the reason for that is because the body adapts to the presence of the opioid. >> reporter: for some that means needing increasingly high doses, which can lead to addiction. the obama administration has already called for $1.1 billion in new funding for addiction treatment treatment. what about the roughly 100 million americans who live with chronic pain? there are other options. >> physical therapy, acupuncture. no one is saying that opioids

7:45 am
how long do i need it for? you shouldn't get more than three days of narcotics. i'm a heart surgeon. i can send people home after opening their chest with over-the-counter medications like motrin. most don't need narcotics. if they get it it should only be two or three days. you don't want it. it's danger in your home. >> there are people that have chronic pain and motrin doesn't do the trick. they go to pain specialists. people can chronic back pain. what are they supposed to do? >> there are folks who have chronic pain. i'm excluding the cancer pain patients because it's a different category. there is a disconnect here. chronic pain isn't all that well managed with narcotics. exercise is a much more effective therapy. i mentioned over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen which works well for a lot of folks. there's hypnosis and alternative approaches. acupuncture, chiropractors might make sense. search for those first.

8:37 am
because it's quite efficient, working with an actor who has written a script. he's not explaining to the director what he wants because he's the boss. it was actually a hell of a lot of fun. it was. >> was he moody and demanding. that's what i was getting at. >> not really. he's got bionic hearing though. >> i know. >> when it's his close-up he can hear everything. >> yeah. it's like freaky. anything puts me off. i'm so aware. i can hear the film grounding in the camera. >> we shot digital. >> i know. >> how is eric as your lead actor? >> great. i cast eric because i thought he was a brooding inging inging thespian action hero. then i found out he was an idiot like me. >> i, too, think of eric as a screen heartthrob. did you know about the "eric
8:38 am
bana show" in australia? >> i didn't. >> i do believe we have the video. >> oh. >>er sick a-- eric is a total clown. comedy comes to you naturally. >> when i started in america, the internet wasn't really a huge thing. people couldn't go searching for all those old clips. i got away with kind of like hiding -- not hiding deliberately but people didn't know about my stand-up background which is what i was known for at home. >> you just knew eric would be funny and hadn't seen this stuff? >> i knew he'd be funny. i knew he could do the part. he's sort of angry and insults me and he bullies me which to someone like me i find that funny, when people insult me. it was good. we really -- that's the thing that developed most i think. >> when i found out that he didn't know that i had done
8:39 am
comedy that was actually a really good thing for me. it meant it relieved a bit of the pressure. we found a natural dynamic as a result of that. >> it's really fun. before i let you go i hear there is a david character that you created. >> i'm finishing up with it now, out in england in august. >> 15 years later, still at the office? >> different office. now he's a rep selling toiletry products. he pays for a band tries to be a pop star. it's tragic and add. >> i can't wait. ricky gervais and eric bana thank you so much. the movie is so fun, called "special correspondents,". >> take your shirt off. >> i'm australia. >> take the trousers off, man. this will go viral. no one downloads me. >> i have no undies on. wouldn't work. >> we have 60 more seconds?
8:40 am
okay. great. i'm just kidding. thank you, guys very much. coming up next unforgettable images of iconic moments. we have the man behind the photos. first, this is "today" on nbc.
8:41 am
8:42 am
we are back at 8:42 with a man whose work you'll recognize instantly. more than 50 years, photographer neil leifer captured iconic photos in sports. his book "relentless" gives the details behind the shots. i blame you if i look tired. i was up late reading the book. you say you took the pictures but never have gotten to tell the story. was this fun to put together? >> the first book i've ever done so it was different, with words. i had a wonderful co-writer. it all came together. >> let's look at the pictures.
8:43 am
i have to start with the iconic shot perhaps the most famous photograph in sports photography. this is 1965. tell us how you got the picture. >> wherever one uses the word "luck," you found like you're being modest. in sports photography, luck is key. look at the photography between ali's legs. he was my competition in "sports illustrated." i got lucky. when you get lucky, don't miss. i didn't miss. >> what's interesting about this a lot of people initially view the picture as a taunt by ali, standing over him, but that's not what happened right? >> you have to focus the camera wait for the strobe lights to recycle. i had no idea what i had. that evening, you don't see the replay on the news at night. probably six months maybe a year later, i saw a video of it and couldn't believe how quickly it'd happened. >> these are twin kenyan brothers. actually, that's your favorite ali shot right?
8:44 am
>> my favorite. that's my favorite because it wasn't luck. i planned that. you know i worked on that. i got it exactly the way i dreamed of getting it. it was the only picture i've ever taken in my career that i wouldn't change a thing? >> let's jump ahead to 1984 kenyan twin runners. how did you incorporate the giraffes? >> olympic preview for "time" magazine. i traveled the world photographing athletes in front of the picture post guard of their country. a greek at the parthenon. an egyptian discus throewer in front of the pyramids. i wanted the animals with two of the great kenyan distance runners. there is a wrangler in nairobi who sets up movie sets so the animals appear -- >> giraffe wrangler? >> animal wrangler. he fed the giraffe in that spot
8:45 am
for three days. sure enough they showed up. we had four but two got frightened by a buffalo. i was lucky with those two. >> great picture. this is incredible. a lot of people know you for your sports photographs. you've done so much more over the course of 50 years. fidel castro lighting your cigar. what were the circumstances? >> this was the last picture in the olympic preview i did. i appealed to the cubans and said fidel castro is the picture postcard of cuba. i wanted to photograph their great boxer with fidel castro with a cigar holding up their arms. when the cubans agreed i had a great session. i ask the subject if i can take a picture. i had this idea when i left new york. i looked at castro and said could i ask a special favor? could i have a picture of you lighting my cigar?
8:46 am
he loved the idea. that's how it happened. i don't smoke. the match kept burning his fingers. went through two matches. he was getting a little upset because i couldn't get the cigar lit. >> before we go i love this picture. jfk and lbj at a ball game in 1961. >> when the washington senators played it was tradition for the president to throw out the opening pitch on opening day. i went to griffith stadium. he's sitting with lyndon johnson. the president didn't do a thing for seven or eight innings. johnson ate a couple hot dogs. in the seventh or eighth inning it got cold. two things happened. the president put his coat on and he put a hat on which caroline kennedy told me years later she never saw a picture of him with a hat on. wore a top hat. there was a foul ball that went in the direction of the presidential box. i like to call it the kennedy administration leaning to the left. >> we've only scratched the surface. this is a remarkable book. the photographs are one thing. they stand on their own.
8:47 am
the story besies behind them just as good. neil thank you so much. >> appreciate it. need help saving? there is an app for that.
8:48 am
we're back at 8:49 with help to buckle down on those bills. it can be overwhelming. our "today" financial editor jean chatzky is here and will make it easier for us.
8:49 am
she found the apps and sites that can save you cash. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> first of all, there are certain bills we can cut down on they're extra and we don't need to pay. >> monthly subscriptions and bills, e-mail prescriptions and prescription drugs which you send a fortune on you can cut your savings there. >> you have a tool to find out what monthly subscriptions you're paying and whether or not you can get out of them. >> there we go. i am stuck on the floor -- >> i've done that, too. oh no. >> do you want me to help you? >> it's good. i'll be short but we'll do it. i'm good to go. i'll make the year-end blooper reel. >> you really are. >> i want to get through this. two services to cut the monthly subscriptions. one is trim. the second one is true bill. they find your subscriptions. you tell them which ones to cancel. they essentially do it for you. >> you're giving your credit card information. is that a little scary?
8:50 am
>> i've done it. they have bank level security and they get what's called read only access. they can't change anything in your account. >> you say getting rid of some of the e-mail subscriptions saves you money. how? >> time is money. i'm a huge believer in this. if you're constantly getting pop-ups in your e-mail all day long and going there, you're paying attention whenever something is on sale. then you're going and buying it. >> they do hook you. >> unroll.me is where you'll find this service. essentially it looks through your e-mail and finds the subscriptions and asks do you want to keep them or get rid of them? it gets rid of all the junk. then anything you want to keep it stores it so that you can look at it once a day. >> that's good. >> you talked about prescription drugses. what you're saying there's cheaper drugs out there. >> you're eligible if you get on a service like blink health.com which has figured out how to do group pricing for everyone.
8:51 am
you go and find the cheapest prescriptions in your area through the app. you actually pay through the app. >> okay. >> then you go to your pharmacy show them the voucher you've already paid for this drug. brings the cost of 90% of prescriptions below $10. >> that's amazing. >> if you're into it, you could hire a professional. >> you've heard me say, call your cable company. call your cell phone company. ask for a lower rate. some people are never going to do that because they're nervous. two services bill fixers and bill cutters will essentially do it for you. >> okay. >> and sometimes you'll be on the line with them. sometimes they will massquerade as you. they take 50% of the first year's savings for doing this for you. >> i'll take off one of my shoes, too, in solidarity. well done. i'm very impressed. >> now you go. >> now you're on the end of the year reel. >> for more advice on how to trim down your bills, today.com. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc.
