tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC June 29, 2017 12:37am-1:38am PDT
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- sean "diddy" combs -- star of "younger" actress hilary duff -- writer and director of "baby driver," edgar wright -- featuring the 8g band with sam fogarino. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening, i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] very good to hear, in that case, let's get to the news. president trump today met several native american tribal leaders. they had a lot of questions for the president, such as how the hell did you manage to lose money running a casino? [ light laughter ]
the chicago cubs made their second visit to the white house today, wow! two white house visits in one year. who do they think they are, the president? [ light laughter ] during a phone call with the irish prime minister yesterday, president trump reportedly told an irish journalist in the oval office that she had a nice smile on her face. then he said, "wait, now it's gone." [ light laughter ] according to new research, a press-on patch for the flu vaccine works just as well as the flu shot. you just remove the adhesive backing and place it firmly over your co-workers' mouth. [ light laughter ] a british man who previously set a record for making the world's largest rubik's cube recently created what he believes is the world's largest fidget spinner. and then he went home and slept in the world's emptiest bed. [ laughter and applause ]
a new -- a brand new study found that heavy drinking could cause a person's cells to age faster and if you don't believe me, check out this recent picture of justin bieber. [ light laughter ] so very happy. still a very happy guy. celebrity chef guy fieri recently admitted that his famous donkey sauce is just aioli, and i think i speak for everyone when i say, "thank god." [ light laughter ] a new study found that the air circulating in airplane cabins could be contaminated and may make people sick. so to be safe, united's just going to kill everybody. [ laughter and applause ] in more airline news, spirit airlines recently gave a family 21 years of free travel after a mother went into labor and gave birth mid-flight. though they probably should have given those free flights to the guy sitting next to her.
[ laughter and applause ] "how was your flight?" "not great." [ light laughter ] that's right, spirit airlines gave a family 21 years of free travel after a mother gave birth mid-flight. unfortunately, they also charged her $75 for the additional carry-on item. [ light laughter ] that's right. the family got 21 years of free travel. wow! that is really generous to assume spirit airlines will be around for 21 years. [ laughter and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight! his new documentary, "can't stop, won't stop a bad boy story" is only available on apple music, sean "diddy" combs is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] we always love having him here. she's the star of "younger" on tvland, hilary duff joins us tonight on the show. [ cheers and applause ] and he is the director and writer of an incredible new film, "baby driver," edgar wright joins us to talk about
that. [ cheers and applause ] before we get to our guests, president trump has spent the last two days once again lashing out at the media, even as a vote on his signature healthcare bill has been delayed due to a lack of support. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: this week the congressional budget office projected that the gop healthcare bill could leave 22 million more people uninsured and republicans in the senate were forced to delay a vote on the bill because it didn't have enough support. so what was trump up to? well, yesterday he got up bright and early to re-tweet four different stories in a row from fox and friends attacking the russian investigation and the democrats. the fox and friends showered trump with so much praise, they're starting to sound like the helicopter parents of a [ bleep ] private school kid. [ light laughter ] "our donny would never collude with russia, how dare you? you know how much money we give to this school?" [ light laughter ]
one of the stories trump re-tweeted was a link to a monologue from fox host, sean hannity whose surgery to have the bolts removed from his neck was apparently successful. so, congrats, bud. [ light laughter ] but even when they're trying to protect trump, his friends at fox sometimes do more harm than good, like when hannity while trying to defend the president repeated some of the most embarrassing rumors about him. >> tonight we have an explosive report from "the new york post," here's the headline, quote, "sketchy firm behind trumps, dossier is stalling investigators." oh interesting, remember that's the dossier that talked about trump at a ritz carlton in moscow with two prostitutes urinating on his bed? >> seth: well, we do now! [ laughter and applause ] you are -- i mean -- you're a terrible wing man. "my friend thinks you're cute. also some people say he has a tiny wang, but those people are liars! she's all yours, buddy!"
in fact, trump is apparently so obsessed with praise from the media that according to "the washington post," he keeps this framed "time" magazine cover hanging at several of his golf clubs. the cover includes headlines like, "donald trump, the apprentice is a television smash." and "trump is hitting on all fronts, even tv." cool cover, flattering photos, just one problem, the "time" cover is a fake. [ light laughter ] that's right. trump hung a fake "time" magazine cover with his face on it in his private golf club. that is the literal definition of fake news. [ laughter and applause ] this would be -- [ cheers and applause ] this would be the saddest thing i've ever heard, if it wasn't the funniest thing i've ever heard. [ light laughter ] so you made a fake "time" magazine cover with your picture on it, do you also get your presidential salary paid to you in giant novelty checks? [ light laughter ] now apparently trump didn't like this report from "the washington post" because today he tore a page out of the strongman playbook and attacked amazon whose ceo jeff bezos also owns
"the washington post," tweeting "the #amazonwashingtonpost sometimes referred to as the guardian of amazon not paying internet taxes, which they should is fake news." so trump is threatening amazon by implying that he might make them start paying internet taxes. there's just one problem with that, there's no such thing as an internet tax. [ light laughter ] in fact, the only thing we have that's close to an internet tax, is the fact that when you use the internet, you have to read donald trump's tweets. that's the tax. [ light laughter ] but while trump tweets crazy things, the far more urgent thing happening in washington right now is the gop's attempt to ram through their health care bill. yesterday, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell was forced to delay a planned vote to try and win over more members of his caucus, but that does not mean the bill is dead. in fact, if anything, it gives mcconnell time to cut backroom deals and win over undecided senators, but the question is what role will trump play? some gop leaders suggested delicately, that they were trying to keep trump out of the healthcare negotiations entirely. >> texas senator john cornyn was
asked whether trump was doing enough to get the bill passed and said, "we're trying to hold him back a little bit." republicans talk about trump the way you talk about your buddy during a bar fight. "hold him back. his wingman just told the girl his wang was tiny." [ light laughter ] but you can only cage the bear for so long, eventually he's going to bust out. yesterday, trump did just that, calling every republican senator to a meeting at the white house. repeating the lie that obamacare is melting down and painting a dire portrait of the healthcare market that required urgent action. although, he also seems to not care that much. >> we have really no choice but to solve the situation. obamacare is a total disaster. for the country, we have to have healthcare and it can't be obamacare, which is melting down. this will be great if we get it done, and if we don't get it done, it's just going to be something that we're not going to like and that's okay, and i understand that very well. >> seth: he sounds like a jewish mother whose son is too busy to
call home. "if you call, that's great, but if you don't, that's okay, too. i'll just sit here staring at this photo of you until i die. you're very busy." [ light laughter ] now, if trump somehow succeeds, and the senate passes this bill, theoretically the house would have to pass it again after what's called a conference committee to iron out the differences between the house and the senate versions. but gop leaders have been floating the idea of skipping that conference committee altogether and just ramming through whatever bill the senate passes. the strategy, many house republicans still apparently don't know about. watch as msnbc's chris hayes breaks the news to florida congressman francis rooney, who is unaware he might be asked to vote immediately on the senate bill. >> they'll going make you vote on the senate bill, you realize that, right? they're going to bring that thing over and they're going to jam it down the house caucus' throat and this process is then going to be your process because you in the house are going to have to own it. >> well, i don't know. isn't there something called a
like -- a compromised committee or something when two different bills are different that they come together -- >> yes, the conference committee, they're going to bypass it and they're going to make you, sir, they're going to make you vote for this thing. >> oh, i didn't know about that. i'll have to check into that. [ light laughter ] >> seth: oh -- oh, i didn't know about that. "oh, so when you say house, is that my house? should i tell my wife we'll have people over? she's going to be mad." [ light laughter ] in fact the secretive process used to write this bill has made it difficult to defend even for those who support it, like oklahoma senator, james inhofe, who told reporters this week, "i'm not sure what it does, i just know it's better than obamacare." asked how it's better? gets into elevator. and something tells me he pushed every button. [ light laughter ] as we've said before the bill is essentially just a giant tax cut paid for with massive cuts to medicaid that would leave millions more uninsured. in fact, studies have shown that people could quite literally die as a result of this bill, with estimates ranging from about 28,000 to nearly 100,000 a year.
but there are some who have a counter argument to those projections. and this will shock you, those people are on fox news. >> you know what the crazy thing is? we're all going die, and they can't predict it. there's no way unless they're absolutely psychic and have a party line to heaven, they don't know whose going to die, or when, or how many people. >> seth: imagine if your doctor said, "your test results came back and i have good news and bad news. the good news is we're all going to die." [ light laughter ] so the vote may be delayed for now, but that does not mean the fight is over. republicans will do whatever they can to get us to think about anything else. they might even try to distract us with that famous dossier, you know the one that talked about -- what was it? >> remember that's the dossier that talked about trump at a ritz carlton in moscow with two prostitutes urinating on his bed. [ light laughter ] >> seth: oh, yeah! this has been "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with
sean "diddy" combs, everybody!

[ cheers and applause ] also, joining us this week the drummer from one of my favorite bands, the new york city band, interpol, who will be performing in the entirety of their classic album "turn on the bright lights" for two shows in nyc, and los angeles this september, sam fogarino is here. thank's much! >> it's been great! >> seth: our first guest tonight is a grammy award-winning hip-hop icon record producer, fashion designer, entrepreneur. you can see him in the new film "can't stop, won't stop: a bad boy story" which is currently streaming on apple music. let's take a look. ♪ >> those lights are cheap as [ bleep ]. those lights, i can go and buy those box lights, or whatever, or at least it looks like 'em. i want to be on the record right now, while there's somebody recording that i do not like the rig. if i had to make a decision right now, i would change the rig right now. i like god light. god isn't going to come breaking through -- when god light comes through -- it just hits you like it's god's lights. i don't want the christ that
looks like the phantom. i want the phantom. >> seth: please welcome back to the show, sean "diddy" combs, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: welcome to the show! >> my man, what's up? >> what's up sean? >> good to see you. >> how you doing -- >> seth: you guys know each other well? >> just a fan, just a fan. >> seth: that's good. that's good. >> thanks for having me. >> seth: oh my god, i'm so happy to have you back. >> thanks for having me on the show, everybody! [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: so good to have you back. i want to get to -- so this is a great documentary about sort of the '90s, and bad boy records. but it also -- kind of what brings it together is you had a 20th reunion concert with everybody. >> yes. yes. >> seth: was that nerve-racking? was that exciting?
how did you feel in the time leading up to that concert? because that was -- we saw you sort of talking about the lights you wanted with your staff. >> yeah. it was -- >> seth: did you get the lights you wanted? did you get the god light? >> yeah. yeah. i got the god light. [ light laughter ] but it really was like a family reunion, when you don't know what's going to happen at a family reunion, and there's some unresolved issues with a lot of the family. >> seth: yeah. >> so we started it out as like, just a concert documentary, but when we got together, we had to deal with the issues about career, and our lives, and things that we haven't dealt with together. and it really -- just really showed the story of our evolution, and our ups and downs, trials and tribulations, life, death, and overall at the end of the day, victory for us all being together on one stage at one time. >> seth: it was really wonderful. you talk about life and death, which is of course one of the parts of this story. you know, biggie kind of hangs over the story of bad boy records. >> yes. >> seth: was that -- it seems like something you reflect on every day.
>> yes. >> seth: was it helpful to reflect on it with everybody from that era? >> yeah, it was definitely helpful to reflect on it with everybody that was, you know, in the bad boy family and, you know, on the label because we all were traumatized by it. but it wasn't just us, it was our fans, and it was like, the people of brooklyn. so, us all being able to come back together on his birthday, and have this concert. it kind of gave us some closure and we were able to kind of put it behind us, and celebrate his life. >> seth: it was really great. you did two nights. you felt better about the second night. >> yes, yes. >> seth: was this just sort of athletes who maybe needed to get back into the groove? is that what you felt like? >> yeah, i mean i'm a perfectionist, and most people that came to the first show they really loved the first show, and i knew that the things that went wrong, and that's always been the thing about me, is that i'm very, very hard on myself, and the first show was like -- the next morning i was crying, and my kids, i told my kids i needed to come up to the hotel room ,because i just needed
somebody to cry in front of because i was so disappointed. it was like you know, a kid in little league, you know what i'm saying? so i'm kind of like, spoiled with the performances -- >> seth: wait you called your children because you wanted to cry in front of them? >> yeah. [ light laughter ] i mean -- >> seth: that seems like it would be very traumatic for them. [ light laughter ] >> yeah, yeah. but i was crying alone, and i felt lonely -- >> seth: yeah, there we go. [ light laughter ] well that -- >> i needed somebody to tell me it was going to be all right. >> seth: well yeah, you do plenty for them. you do plenty for them. >> exactly. >> seth: it's about time they do something for you. >> it was the first time they saw it, and i just, you know, i was in a desperate situation, and i called my family -- >> seth: there you go. >> i was like, i'm up there crying. you all need to get up here. [ light laughter ] but the second night. the second night really -- i mean, you really got to go see the movie. "can't stop, won't stop," it's in theaters just up till this week. we did a limited run, but you can go to apple music, and you can get it there. and it will also be on itunes july 7th. >> seth: it's also interesting. obviously, your entire career has been documented, and you know, 20 years ago, a lot of this footage is just cameras
that you had. >> yes. >> seth: i want to show a quick clip of your management style back in the early days. you said you were very hard on yourself. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: you can also -- is it true that early on, it seems like in the film you were pretty hard on everybody else, too. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. i mean i had a lot of success early, and this is the definition of somebody that went crazy with a lot of success and money. >> seth: here we go. >> i got my mtv. i'm [ bleep ]. savage, i'm a savage. oh! i'm a savage. whatever i want, you get. [ light laughter ] >> seth: that is definitely not something they teach at harvard business school. [ light laughter ] >> yeah. i had to evolve my approach to things. [ light laughter ] we were having a lot of turnover in the company. [ light laughter ] but you know, it's really about the passion, you know? this is like, you know, this is to me, like, just the way a basketball player takes what he does, or an athlete, you know. hip-hop for me, and making it
this global juggernaut is something that i dreamt about, is something that in the '90s i put it on my back. and i wanted us to -- and the culture, for people around the world to understand this is a multibillion-dollar business. >> i think it was mary j. blige. a lot of people are interviewed in it, and talking about first meeting you, and she sort of says, she can't remember what you first said. but she just remembered, you were telling everybody that you -- we were going to win. and it must have been so contagious to work with you back then for those people who are all just getting their starts via you. >> yeah. i mean i came in with a very crazy attitude because my connection with god made me believe, and my faith was growing up in catholic schools and going to church -- my grandmother just taught me that whatever you really, really believe in you can make come true. and so, i was really believing that we were going to be one of the world's most famous record companies. and we were going to all go on
to superstardom. and so, that's the motivation that i would have on all of the artists that you know, came up with me. >> seth: that's fantastic. it's fantastic how right you were. there was another moment i really like because i want to use this as a management style. at one point in the documentary you take one of your colleagues aside, you basically say you do not care for his energy. and you tell him to go for a walk, and come back with better energy. is that something you often do? >> yeah, yeah. because now i'm really protective around -- about the energy that's around me, you know. and so i really only want to deal with positive energy, and so if i see any of my friends, and any of my employees, they're energy is not right, we have this thing called "check your energy," you know? [ light laughter ] i think it's time that you check your energy, because it's not feeling right. i'm trying to stay on this kumbaya thing, and i'm not -- [ light laughter ] i'm not going backwards. i'm going forward. >> seth: yeah, that's great. you were very nice about it. you weren't upset. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> seth: you said i think you have to go for a walk and come back, and i was thinking, oh man, i can't wait to use that.
>> yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: i want to ask about a photo. you were at the met ball this year. >> yes. >> seth: and here is a photo of you, and your date, and -- so explain what's going on there. [ light laughter ] >> if you've ever gone to the met ball, especially, and you've gone with a young lady, they really just want to take pictures of the ladies. >> seth: yeah. >> so, you know, after i was standing there for two minutes, the stairs looked kind of comfortable -- [ light laughter ] and you know, i liked my outfit, and i thought i should sprawl out. [ light laughter ] >> seth: it looks really good. it looks really good. [ cheers and applause ] last thing, jay-z, who is great in the documentary as well -- >> yes. >> seth: beyonce, they just had twins. you have twins. >> yes, i do. >> seth: did you give counsel to jay? did you tell him what was coming down the pike? >> jay is usually the one that gives me counsel, so i was so happy to be able give him counsel on this, and the thing that i said is that you really have to be prepared for double the love.
you're used to getting love from one child, but when you get this incredible love from two kids and they're twins, it's -- it's truly a blessing, and you know, may god bless him, and beyonce, and the family, and everybody out there that has kids, period. that's what really runs our lives. but, to have twins is double the fun. >> seth: is it double the work? >> it's -- it's -- [ light laughter ] i just want to say, thank you to the mother of my -- >> seth: give it up to sean "diddy" combs. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you for the mother of my children. >> seth: "can't stop, won't stop" is currently streaming on apple music. >> go see the movie! >> seth: we'll be right back with hilary duff!

[ light laughter ] >> i woke up and i was like, "that happened?" my friend was like, "it did." >> seth: did you wake up still with the name of a celebrity on your forehead? >> no, no. we used, like, you know, the updated version that's on the phone. >> seth: oh, right. you used an app. that's -- [ light laughter ] >> yeah. you know about that? you know what an app is? >> seth: in my day, we -- you had a quill pen.

but really, you know, there's not going to be much of a show with us fighting the whole season. >> seth: right. >> but kelsey does "mean girl" her, which was quite fun. >> seth: oh, that's good. well, obviously based on your efforts last night at the bowery hotel we know that comes easy to you. [ light laughter ] >> it's -- it's in there. it's in there. it takes a few cocktails to creep out, but she in there. >> seth: so this show was created by darren star who created "sex and the city," "melrose place," "90210." were you a fan of his work going into this? >> so i was a little young for the "90210" and "melrose place" phase, but my sister was obsessed. so i would like sneak in and get little, you know -- get my little fix. but really "sex and the city" was everything to me. >> seth: yeah. >> like, i did not miss an episode. and i feel so honored to work for him. like, he called me up and asked me to do this job, so it's not every day darren star calls you on your cell phone. >> seth: that's really cool. >> yeah. i feel like our show is like the brooklyn version of "sex and the city." >> seth: well, there you go. it's about time. >> yeah, yeah. we use the show as -- or, the city as a secret weapon in the show. like, it gives it so much energy and -- >> seth: and you have a
5-year-old. >> i do. >> seth: and he -- is it true that he loves being in the city because he thinks the ninja turtles are real, and in our sewers? >> yes. [ light laughter ] and i don't know if you look down as much as i have recently, but there's about nine manhole covers on every city block in new york, and he wants to stop at every one of them. [ light laughter ] he thinks that, like, leonardo and master splinter are down there, like, concocting plans to like save the city. [ light laughter ] >> seth: does he want to stop and say something? what is he -- >> he wants to look in the tiny little hole. >> seth: oh, no. [ light laughter ] >> i know. and i'm really not that germy, weird mom that's like, "don't --" >> seth: yeah. >> "let's purell you up from head to toe." but i'm like, "that is --" >> seth: that's the line for everybody. [ light laughter ] >> there's like dog urine. probably human urine. >> seth: yeah. >> like it's just -- don't touch the ground. >> seth: if you let him do that he'd just have one giant old pink eye. [ light laughter ] >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> seth: whichever is his peekin' eye would be probably swollen shut at this point. >> "his peekin' eye" is amazing. >> seth: is he familiar with -- i mean, at five, does he know of your career? does he know your work?
>> he's starting to figure it out more and more. i think some little rascal at school -- >> seth: uh-huh. >> told him what my name was. >> seth: okay. >> and he came home from school like a few -- >> seth: your son doesn't know your name? [ light laughter ] >> well, he knows that my name's hillary. >> seth: oh, right. >> like, he knows what his parents like real names are. i'm not just, like, mom. >> seth: no, again, i don't know. like, i guess my son doesn't know my name yet.

[ light laughter ] >> you're like, "here's my show." >> seth: yeah. >> you put him to sleep at -- >> seth: i actually sit him in front of it every night.

[ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> like, he belongs me right now. >> seth: yeah, exactly. and they're like, "why don't you show it to him the next morning on youtube?" i'm like, "he needs to see it as it airs." [ light laughter ] >> he needs to be updated right away. >> seth: right away. >> well, luca did know my name and then he said to me, like, "i know your name." and i was like, "i know." [ light laughter ] and he was like -- like, "i know your name." [ light laughter ] and i was like, "okay." and he's like, "hilary duff." [ laughter ] and then he looked at me like,
"mm-hmm." [ laughter ] and i was, like -- caught, i guess. >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] >> like, i don't know what to say. who told you that? like, what? he's, like, very funny. he's seen me on the cover of magazines at a grocery store. and i really think he just thinks the next day, like, shane's mommy is going to be on a magzine. [ laughter ] >> seth: right. he thought it was just this is where moms are. they're on the cover of magazines. [ light laughter ] as they should, because moms are amazing, and they should be on the cover of magazines. he's very cute, by the way. >> that is true. >> seth: this is a photo of the two of you. there you go. [ audience aws ] by the way, that is the face a kid makes when he says "i know who you are."

[ cheers and applause ] ♪
♪ >> seth: welcome, edgar! >> thank you for having me. >> seth: congratulations on this film. it's fantastic. and this is about a guy who is a getaway driver. he plans his getaway drives to specific songs. >> yeah. >> seth: and this is an idea you had back in your early 20s? >> yeah, basically, when i heard the song that was in that clip, actually, by the john spencer blues explosion -- i heard them when i was 21. and it's not like i necessarily thought, like, "oh, this is a movie." i literally couldn't listen to the song without thinking of a car chase. so it was like kind of my version of action movie synesthesia. it was like, "oh, this song is a car chase." and then eventually i had to come up with a movie that went with that song. [ light laughter ] which has been, you know, a process over like 22 years. >> seth: it must have been so fun to pick all these songs that are getaway songs. >> yes. >> seth: i mean, it's fantastic.
the soundtrack alone is sort of one of the co-stars of the film. >> yeah, i mean, i think that's the thing is that you -- i mean, i like -- there's that thing of like, a lot of people have, like, "oh, this is a great driving song." and i tend to think one further in terms of this is a great car chase song, this is a great foot chase song. this is a great kind of ramming into other cars kind of song. [ laughter ] so it's just like this -- i've just got, like, i mean -- a bit like "rainman." just got endless, endless playlists of like, different songs for different scenes. >> seth: different cases. >> yeah. >> seth: now, there was no green screen in this film, which happens in i think most films where you have these kind of car chases. so this was all practical. this was on the atlanta freeways. i can only imagine how stressful that was to shoot this kind of stuff for real. >> well, the thing is, i mean, people use green screen a lot now just as a sort of practicality thing. it's easy to do the actor shots on green screen. so it's not just doing the stunt car stuff on the roads, but shooting all the actors on the roads. and i remember when i said to the producer that -- "i want to shoot all the actor shots on the freeway as well." he went -- "okay." and it's that thing where you're thinking, "oh, it's immediately got twice as complicated."
but i think it just -- it's so much more visceral. i think you just feel it. even in that clip, you can probably see it. the actors are swinging around sort of corners at like, 50 miles an hour. >> seth: so you had to get actors of a lot of renown to agree to sort of race around, like jamie foxx and john hamm. and they were cool just saying, "yeah, we'll get in the car and get whipped around?" >> no actor says, "oh, no, i don't want to." whatever they're really thinking, they just do it. [ light laughter ] >> seth: now, did you ever have to ride with the stunt drivers yourself? >> i did. actually, in one of the shots immediately after that, i think the first time we did some shots, it was a shot of jon bernthal coming around this corner extremely fast. and even though you know what's going to happen nothing can prepare you for it. and i was sitting in the back, and because you're with all the stunt guys and the actors, i think the first take i like, whacked my head really hard and they turned around and said, "are you okay, guy?" i go, "yeah, yeah, yeah." [ light laughter ] you don't admit in front of the stunt guys that there's been any pain. >> seth: right. >> seth: do you -- was it hard -- so you're directing the actors when they're in the car.
are you communicating with them via walkies? how are you talking to them? >> well, when you get to doing stuff on the freeway, you know, usually like, there's -- it's not like a trailer like it used to be where the car is attached to a trailer. there's this new rig called the biscuit, named after the film "seabiscuit," 'cause what they invented it for. it's basically the car is on its own platform with six wheels and a stunt driver is on a pod on the outside like a side car. but it does mean that the actors can move around independently at high, high speeds. now, usually, the director is in the van following, watching on a satellite link-up. but i felt distanced being in a van, this command van, that i would say, "can i just sit on the car, as well, with the camera assistants?" and it's that thing -- you know when you sort of make a bold decision and then you can't go back from it? >> seth: right. >> i want to be strapped in on that car. and then i'm strapped in like mad max on the front. and also as an english person, i'm not really ready for the georgia weather. we shot it in atlanta. so i'm like sitting there kind of like -- and it's this thing,
i've made a big thing. it's like, i'm man enough to sit on the car as well. i'm going to get strapped in. i'm watching on a monitor, and every time that car took off i was never ready. it was like, hats, walkie -- [ light laughter ] and then also i can see the actors. 'cause it's the one thing that makes it a little easier is you can -- 'cause, you know, when you're talking over a walkie doing a car chase, all likes of articulate direction goes out the window, and it literally just becomes you screaming, like, "intense! [ light laughter ] intense, ansel, intense!" [ light laughter ] but like, john hamm saw me struggling outside, and he said this later on, but i thought i was keeping it together. and john hamm said later that i looked like a floppy sunburned muppet. [ laughter ] because every -- every -- every take i was always going -- [ light laughter ] and then everybody goes, "are you okay?" i go, "yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah." [ light laughter ] >> seth: another thing working against you communication-wise, you mentioned being british for the sunburns, but also car
terminology, completely different in england. >> yeah, the biggest lesson learned -- people say, "what's it like making a film in the states?" it's exactly the same, except on a car movie, it's like hood and trunk. hood and trunk. hood and trunk. not bonnet and boot. [ light laughter ] because if you are describing a scene and you say, "and then ansel comes running around the corner, and he jumps over the bonnet," and the guys are going, "hmm?" [ light laughter ] a -- a lady's hat? [ light laughter ] it's a very -- i mean, also, the british terms are very feminine. bonnets and boots. >> seth: yeah. and it's a very masculine -- i mean, there's a lot of thrust behind driving these cars around and you don't -- i never thought, like, "there goes the bonnet." [ light laughter ] >> the other word that would completely sort of lose everybody was "shunt." which is like, sort of like -- so i'd say, "oh, and then he shunt into the back of him," and they're like, "what?" [ light laughter ] and i end up saying -- i said, "what do you call it when you rear end a car?" they say, "we call it rear ending." [ light laughter ] they both sound filthy. [ light laughter ]
i'd like to teach you the word shunt. shunting into the back of somebody. >> seth: well, there you go. now you have two dirty ways of saying it. [ light laughter ] congrats on the film. it is fantastic. >> thank you. >> seth: and thank you so much for being here. it's always great to see you, edgar.
