1:15 am
he's like "'luke cage' is up next." and i'm like, okay. and so then i had to go and tell my wife about it, but long story short here we are and we're happy to be here. >> seth: i like knowing because i also had a -- yes. [ applause ] i also recently had a pregnant wife. we just had a baby as well. and i can tell you that i would rather face down those guys with guns than go to her and say, hey change of plans, i'm out of here. deal with your wife. she's pregnant. you don't know. i mean the chemical -- you don't know what's going on. >> seth: you don't want to mess with that. >> you can't -- >> seth: they have a different super power. they're pretty -- >> oh, yeah. it's called the stare. >> seth: there you go. and you -- so in this show you are -- you're bulletproof, as we saw from the clip. but you, obviously, you're a fit guy but not impervious to injury. you did get injured on set? >> oh yeah. i got injured a few times. so one time we were, last episode we were shooting and we did a huge fight scene that lasted upstairs, downstairs,
1:16 am
intense. and there's this one thing where this kind of like rig thing that i'm supposed to kick and my stunt guy kicks it in. it's really good. he kicks it in, it's great. and i'm like, i'm gonna kick it again because obviously we do both do the same stunts and then they cut around it and so most times i'm the one that you're seeing. so i go to kick this thing, mind you it was good the first time that he did it. i kick it as hard as i can. i kick and i stubbed my toe. >> seth: okay. >> and when i say i stubbed my toe i think i broke it. i mean it was like -- i was like ooh. so then i didn't want to tell anyone because it's like, all >> seth: yeah. >> they never talk about their injuries. >> seth: and i can tell you i've never in any comic book, and i've read a lot. i've never heard a character say, my toe! >> my toe. [ laughter ] no, no. >> seth: it's like left out of comics almost entirely. >> so i had to just bite the bullet and i basically hobbled upstairs to my dressing room and i could not put any pressure on that big toe for like weeks and it was nagging me and i was just, i couldn't say to anyone i really hurt my big toe. >> seth: i'm going to look forward to watching the last episode you do a lot of leaning.
1:17 am
he's got a little hitch in his giddy up, doesn't that luke cage? [ laughter ] he's got a hitch in his giddy up. >> seth: so you -- you mention you shot in new york and i imagine it's pretty fun because obviously in this city, everybody life is going around all around the set. did people notice you were shooting? were they excited? >> well new yorkers are very special. we shot a couple places and the fans in harlem where we shot a lot were very supportive. and we would be shooting and things would be going well. scenes going well. and you want to get the shot because you never know when something is going to technically go wrong. you have to shoot it again. people would walk by and they notice, "luke cage!" and i'm like -- [ light laughter ] you start the scene again. and it's like "luke cage!" trying to shoot a scene here. "luke ca --" i'm like, okay. sorry. we're trying to shoot. it would go on and on. >> seth: but new yorkers don't care. >> they don't care. boom boxes. [ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> they would take boom boxes around walk on set knowing that we're shooting and then the cops would come and try to get them and then it would become a game and they would chase them around.
1:18 am
god. i mean, they want their 15 minutes. >> seth: they want their 15 minutes. and you can say we're trying to shoot something and they're saying i'm trying to say hello to a fictional character. >> exactly. >> seth: so i guess we're at logger heads. >> i bought the comic book. i want my time. >> seth: i want my time. >> i want my time. >> seth: obviously a physical show and you -- but you're a character who is impervious to bullets but you do not kill your enemies. >> no, no. >> seth: a lot of throwing them around. lot of beating them up. >> yeah we have -- we have what we call a technique called smackfu. >> seth: smackfu. >> smackfu. yes. that's something that james lew, with. basically it's like, you know, smacking people around. you know like, it's kind of like hip slapping. like you, you know, like a beeotch slap. >> seth: gotcha. [ laughter ] >> so, what we do -- >> seth: that's your super power. >> yeah, it's like, you come near me i just -- i just disrespect you. like, bam, smack you across your face. >> seth: is it always back of the hand? >> always back of the hand. front of the hand sometimes. depending, i'll do a double, you know like a double thing. >> seth: that's the b and the eeotch. >> yeah. the b and the eeotch. [ laughter ] beeotch. yeah. yeah, that's it.
1:19 am
>> seth: and so, that i see, again, you are probably pretty good now at not actually hitting the people you're working with. >> i'm pretty good. i've only, let's see have i smacked any -- i smacked one guy but he had it coming. >> seth: okay, gotcha. [ laughter ] >> he had it coming. he had it coming. that was something i owed him from lunchtime. >> seth: okay gotcha. and then they can't put it on you, you can just say you missed. >> i'm sorry. i just mis-measured and he got sliced. you know. and i'm the star. so i mean they -- they're like, what are they going to do. >> seth: exactly. [ laughter ] i think what people are really drawn to with "daredevil" with "jessica jones," and obviously superhero movies but they have so much less time. with these 13 episode shows, you actually get to get way more in the character than you would in the movies. and is that another thing that sort of drew you to doing a project like this? >> well the thing about this i mean we have two and half hours of films. in this we have 13 episodes. in the first episode you don't have to get to know everything there is to know about luke cage. you can get to know just like what -- what his first day is like. how does he get up every morning and just kind of go about his day. and that's -- but as an actor you want to take your time and
1:20 am
character study is great. and this is not about special effects so much as it is about a character study, about a person who is like you and i or both. i am him but excuse me. but like you guys who, it's weird. i'm like, yeah, i am him. but it's like the person next door who actually has the same problems you have and he's trying to get through the day but he also has super abilities. so they don't really enhance his life so much as they create problems. so he has to figure a way to incorporate them into his life. that's kind of how -- >> seth: that's great. well based on the first episode i saw you guys are off to a great start. >> seth: now what, obviously you look like this now, what were you -- were you a cool dude in high school? was this a thing? >> you know i was a loaner of sorts. i kind of stayed to myself. i mean i did have friends. i wasn't like you know some geek that stayed in the room and just played by myself. >> seth: i don't know. loner sounds like a geek. >> all right. all right. [ laughter ] well, here's the thing -- you pegged me out in one day. [ laughter ] he's got me. he's got me. so i mean, i was -- i kind of -- i did the best i could.
1:21 am
but i was voted most ambitious actually when i graduated. >> seth: really? >> yeah, which is -- >> seth: that's nice. >> that's good. >> seth: i guess it's nice, right? >> it is but here's the same. i had most ambitious but i should have had another accolade. and i'm not blowing own horn but i was this close to being most attractive in my senior class. >> seth: there you go. it's okay. don't be ambitious about this. >> i am being ambitious about it. [ laughter ] >> seth: this is so like you. >> no i know, see i have to have it. i have to have it. >> seth: so what happened? was there just a better looking guy? >> no, it was called, he was my cousin and -- [ light laughter ] and i found out after the fact cause he went around and paid people. i'm not kidding. he walked around paying people to vote for him. and our senior class is like a hundred people. so to basically get the deciding vote he handed like maybe $50 out. which is a lot money for him but he wanted to get that award. >> seth: i hope he also won most likely to succeed. because that guy -- >> no, no, no, no. that's me. most ambitious. that's the same -- it's the same -- it's one in the same. >> seth: there you go. there you go. he voted most industrious. >> yeah. >> seth: most likely to rig an election in the future. >> most likely to rig an election. he's doing hard time now.
