7:02 am
cruz throwing his hat in the ring overnight with that tweet right there. he's making it official at an event in virginia this morning. nbc's kelly o'donnell is there. kelly, it's texas senator ted cruz. why virginia? >> reporter: well, you're right, matt. we are a long way from his hometown of houston. we're even far from the early decision-making places like iowa or new hampshire. but ted cruz has picked the home base of young evangelical conservatives to kick off his white house run. a cruise missile launched after midnight. >> and i'm ready to stand with you to lead the fight. >> reporter: in a video message tweeted to 350,000 followers, the texas senator announced his run for president. >> it's going to take a new generation of courageous conservatives to help make america great again. >> reporter: sunday night, a casual cruz wife heidi and their two daughters did a brief
7:03 am
rehearsal on the stage at liberty university choosing this evangelical headquarters cruz is sending a message. >> if you say you support life and you support marriage show me where you stood up and fought. >> reporter: with his texas-sized ambitions, today cruz bucked the establishment again, by skipping the preliminary steps and jumping into a full-scale campaign. >> either you love ted cruz or you hate ted cruz. but no matter what you know he is i'd logically clear. >> reporter: critics say he led to the 2013 government shutdown. his 21-hour talk-a-thon even veered into dr. seuss' lane. >> i would not eat green eggs and ham, i do not like them sam i am. >> reporter: last week in new hampshire, a child's reaction to cruz's rhetoric put a 3-year-old in the spotlight. >> the whole world is on fire. >> the whole world is on fire? >> your world is on fire. but you know what your mommy is

here and everyone is here to make sure that the world you grow up in is even better. >> reporter: also new this morning, ted cruz has released a biographical video to introduce himself. he's 44 only been on the national scene for a couple of years, and he's talking about this new generation as a way to try to separate himself, contrast himself, from other candidates like jeb bush. savannah? >> all right, kelly o'donnell, thank you so much. let's talk more politics with mark halperin managing editor of bloomberg politics. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. >> reporter: first decision get in first, and he's gobbling up all the media energy in the first 24 hours. >> if you're in a race better to start before anybody else right? pretty basic. other people are going to get in the coming weeks. ted cruz is trying to differentiate himself. he's not very well-known. he's got populist support at the grass roots level but needs more people to know him faster. smart way to do. >> reporter: the book on senator ted cruz is he is whip smart, a
7:05 am
conservative fire brand, knows how to throw rhetorical bombs. do you consider him a top tier candidate? >> i think he's a second tier candidate. he captures part of what the republican party wants. they want someone to go to washington and shake things up. you hear it again and again from voters. but they also want washington to work better and ted cruz's challenge is to continue to say i can change things but also make washington work. republicans want that too. >> if this is the starting gun on the 2016 race boy, what a republican field. eight, nine, potential candidates? >> i think there's eight or nine who could be the nominee, eight or nine more who could run. people in the early voting states like iowa and new hampshire, they have seen the activity. today is the start of this thing going national. the whole country is going to be on in this wild ride to say which of these 8 or 9, 12 13, 14 people can win the republican nomination. >> meanwhile, the democratic side is as lonely as the republican is crowded. where do you think hillary clinton comes down on announcing her run? >> the next couple weeks.
7:06 am
republicans are running in a field of 13 or 14. right now she is running in a field against herself and kind of losing. all these questions about her e-mails, whether she should face a nomination fight means democrats are worried, putting all their chips on one horse, hillary clinton. and if she ends up having problems they're making maybe she should be tested by a democrat rather than risk sending her into a general election without having debates and the kind of scrutiny you get when you have a contestant fight. >> we'll see you lots in the next 596 days. thank you so much. >> thank you. now to a disturbing development in the fight against isis. that terror group posting a hit list of names, addresses, and even photos of u.s. service members. let's bring in richard engel, nbc's chief foreign correspondent. richard, good morning. what can you tell us? >> good morning. it has 100 names on it. it's an isis hit list. it appears to be aspirational. and in a statement, the pentagon says the information wasn't hacked from any classified sources but mostly culled from
7:07 am
news reports and social media. the pentagon says it's mostly a scare tactic a call to murder by isis. the group released a list of u.s. military personnel and asked loyalists in the united states to hunt them down. the list included american troops' home addresses and contact information. defense officials tell nbc news the list does include names of active duty service members, some deployed overseas some combat pilots. the pentagon is encouraging anyone on the list to exercise caution, but at this time has apparently made no decision to pull them off duty or provide personal protection. it's propaganda is going further. from afghanistan to west africa and adding new countries to its portfolio, new areas where militants operate. isis says it launched the gunmen who killed nearly 20 tourists in a museum in tunisia last week.
7:08 am
the gunmen. >> the group said trained next door in libya. and on friday isis claimed responsibility for five suicide attacks in yemen, killing more than 130 people at shiite mosques. yemen was supposed to be the model for how washington would fight islamic radicals. the president spoke to savannah guthrie about yemen during his super bowl interview. >> we have continually been able to maintain pressure on al qaeda in that region. >> can you do that with a government that's not a partner. >> we can maintain pressure. >> reporter: the u.s.-backed government which used to help washington fight extremists was driven out of the capital in february by rebels who are still on the march. over the weekend, the government lost another city the country's third-largest, taiz to the rebels. >> this war that is playing out in yemen, this struggle for power, between the government and the rebels is creating an
7:09 am
enormous opportunity for groups like al qaeda, and in particular isis. because you have a struggle for power with the government battling the rebels and they're trying to regain control of the country. and in this chaos, isis is trying to really establish itself. >> which they seem to be good at filling vacuums. >> exactly. >> richard engel, thank you very much. >> closer to home accused killer robert durst is heading back to court in new orleans this morning. it's a key hearing tied to weapons charges filed after his arrest for murder. nbc's stephanie gosk is following developments in the courthouse for us this morning. steph, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. it was a fairly standard bond hearing on those weapons charges. but late friday durst's lawyer in a bold move filed a motion saying he wants to argue that the original arrest warrant for murder isn't actually legal. he says it faced more on that hbo documentary than on probable cause.
7:10 am
when robert durst appears this morning on weapons charges, his attorneys will demand an immediate preliminary hearing. those charges were filed after police arrested durst at this new orleans marriott for the murder of his friend susan berman 15 years ago in los angeles. in court documents, durst's attorney argues the california arrest warrant was issued without probable cause, to coincide with the final episode of the hbo docu-drama "the jinx." durst was arrested the night before the final episode aired. evidence led police to the long-time friend in new york state, where investigators seized 60 boxes of durst's personal possessions. again, just hours before the final episode. >> i think that anybody would be a fool to think there wasn't a connection between the final episode of the series and the arrest of mr. durst. >> reporter: durst's lawyer is also concerned about what happened once his client was in custody, saying a los angeles prosecutor spent three hours
7:11 am
with him before the houston attorney could fly to new orleans. long-time new orleans lawyer says he may be tried in new orleans first, because he feels he has a slam dunk case on the lesser weapons charges. durst's harder to prove murder charge in california. >> if robert durst is sentenced to 20 years, clearly 15 years, even 10 years in his physical and mental condition and age, it is essentially a life sentence. >> reporter: the lawyer compares this case to the al capone case. you'll remember that authorities went africa pony for years for murder but ended up sending him to jail on tax evasion. that would be the case with these weapons charges. durst for his part denies being involved in susan berman's murder. guys back to you. >> stephanie gosk thank you so much. natalie is on assignment this morning. we'll check in with her in a little while. chanel is here with a story on frightening scenes in florida.
7:12 am
>> a helicopter crashed in an orlando home sunday killing the pilot. but incredibly no one on the ground was hurt. faa and ntsb officials will be onsite this morning to try to figure out what went wrong. >> the impact was a very solid boom and dead silent. >> reporter: the terrifying sound of a helicopter crashing into a house jolted a peaceful upscale neighborhood in orlando sunday afternoon. the pilot is presumed dead but miraculously no one else was injured. a spokesperson with the faa says the chopper took off from the orlando executive airport around 2:30 and flew about two miles before it crashed. >> it is a helicopter that has crashed into a residence. it's being reported the pilot is still inside. >> orlando copies. >> rescue is on the scene. >> reporter: neighbor don car says as a vietnam war veteran, he immediately recognized the sound of a helicopter in trouble. >> this was a very slow. >> whop whop whop followed with a boom and everything went dark. >> reporter: police say the helicopter hit a two-story
7:13 am
garage apartment, the guest house of the property empty at the time. an unknown number of residents were inside the main part of the house. >> we don't know what caused the accident. we just know that the helicopter did go inside the guest house. >> reporter: the origin and destination of the helicopter's flight and the pilot's identity were not immediately released. it is unclear if anyone else was on board at the time. today, police will release the results of an investigation into an alleged sexual assault at the university of virginia that was reported in "rolling stone" magazine last fall. nbc's gabe gutierrez is in charlottesville with the latest. good morning. >> chanel, good morning. police have remained tight-lipped about this investigation. these allegations rocked this campus back in november. that's when "rolling stone" published a lengthy article about a woman the writer called jackie who claimed she had been gang raped by seven men at a fraternity house on campus. the university suspended all
7:14 am
fraternity activities and there were protests on campus and it all sparked a national conversation about sexual assault on college campuses. but within weeks, several major details of jackie's story were discredited. the magazine admitted it had never contacted the man who allegedly orchestrated the attack. it apologized to its readers and said its trust in jackie had been misplaced. but now we're awaiting the details of this investigation. many here on campus many questions have persisted about how much of jackie may have been true. later today, charlottesville police are expected to shed some light on that. >> thank you. federal regulators are investigating complaints this morning that two nissan recalls didn't actually fix a problem with front seat air bag seat sensors. the recalls involved nearly 1 million vehicles in 2013 and 2014. they were initiated because of problems with computer software. air bags won't inflate if the software doesn't register an adult in the seat. the government reports 124

7:16 am
keith carson my come patriot from the weather channel is standing by i-294. and that road behind him was completely clear. and now, keith, it looks like road conditions have deteriorated. >> reporter: yeah al. things have definitely deteriorated quickly here. the snow came down at a good enough clip to cover the roads. early this morning, as al mentioned, we had snow on the shoulder but the friction of the cars was keeping it from hitting the ground and actually sticking on the highway. you'll notice two things. one is the highway is covered with snow. the other is people are still going about 60 miles per hour in most cases. so you do have to remember of course chicago with a decent amount of snow 40 inches so far this season. but at this snowfall rate the thundersleet reported to our south, we could have problems later on in the commute. and al, this is the kicker of all of this. one week ago in chicago, the high temperature was 73 degrees. >> crazy. and then wednesday we may be looking at thunderstorms and severe weather. keith carson from the weather

8:30 now. and it's a monday morning. it's the 23rd of march, 2015. and for those of you not as familiar with the canine calendar did you know that today is national puppies day? >> how appropriate. >> it is. so we've got our puppy here on the plaza, meeting some of his fans hanging out with his man, carson. happy puppy day, everyone. >> hey, come here. >> nice to see you all.
8:31 am
>> come on over. >> come on. >> in the meantime don't have time to cook a full meal for your family? if you can muster up just 35 minutes, you can. giada is here kicking off our week of week night wonders. >> can you imagine? the godfather without al pacino? matt's revealing conversation with the oscar winner on that and his new rock star role. >> he is a rock star no matter what. first let's bring in swimming superstar, missy franklin won five gold medals stretched into her collegiate career cal berkeley including titles at the ncaa championship this past weekend. missy, good to see you. >> thank you guys. >> so this is an announcement today that's been a long time in the making, and a lot of people know this, but the time has come for you to -- >> turn professional!
8:32 am
>> why now? >> it's so unreal. you know we made this decision coming out of london. i figured if i could get two years and go professional and have a year going into the olympic trials for rio to really set that platform for myself and that would be the best thing for me. and now it's happening. >> i remember talking to you after the olympics. a lot of people thought you might turn pro then. it seems to me not only did you want to swim in college, you wanted to have a real college experience. >> absolutely. live in the dorms, for sure. absolutely. i did dorm living cafeteria food. we got the whole thing. >> now that you've turned pro, will you continue the dance? >> oh, are you kidding? if anything it will get worse. >> one of the perks of turning professional you can take endorsement deals now, so you can actually be paid for your talents. so in all those hours swimming laps in the pool was there one splurge item you were thinking
8:33 am
when that happens, i want to get this for myself. >> you know there is really not an item. someone asked me the first thing i want to do and it's going to be taking my parents out to dinner. and getting a nice nice meal. >> right over here too. which is great. >> they're so wonderful. >> well congratulations. >> thank you so much. you guys have been so wonderful. >> we'll see you in rio. >> hopefully. >> i think that's a given. >> all right, thank you. let's get a check of the weather. >> of course i am still yet to turn professional. today a clipper bringing snow and rain and some heavier showers down through the south. look for wet weather in the pacific northwest. snow through the plains. and rain down through florida. tomorrow we've got sunny skies in the northeast, chillier than usual. slight risk of strong storms in the central plains. wet weather in the pacific northwest, icy mix in the river valley. heat continues through the southwest. that's what's going on around the co good morning, i'm meteorologist bill henley.
8:34 am
it feels like winter outside. bundle up if you're heading out the door and don't forget your sunglasses. lots of sunshine, breezy and chilly too. upper 30s and low 40s. about 15 degrees colder than normal for this time of the year. chill in the air tomorrow morning, not all that much warmer tomorrow afternoon. the warmup will come with some wet weather later wednesday and thursday when it will be closer to 70 degrees. slight chance of thunderstorms thursday, then drying out as we head toward the weekend. have a great day. don't forget. get your weather any time you need it. go to the weather center on cable and online. >> let's head back to natalie in los angeles, where she caught up with the cast of "furious 7." >> may, matt and savannah we met up with the cast and director in the backyard of the house for those not familiar with the movies the home of don toretteoe
8:35 am
toretto. it's also a place that plays a significant role in the franchise. a place where the group comes together to barbecue and give thanks for all they have. and the cast considers themselves much more than co stars. they consider themselves very much a family and all suffered a huge loss when a member of their family paul walker died while making the movie. >> obviously, it's got to be really difficult time to be doing the press tour and promoting a film at the same time. you're also dealing and talking about the loss of your friend paul walker. >> i want to talk about paul. i want to celebrate his life. i want to talk about how amazing he was. i want to talk about how much we bonded over being dads about our daughters. as hard as it is it was our opportunity to come together and create something special. number one, for his family. number two, in his honor. number three, for the fans. >> jordana, you, of course play his wife. and had such close connection to
8:36 am
him throughout the film. how did you process and deal with the grief that you were feeling? >> i don't think there's -- i'm still sort of processing it. and i don't think it's something any of us will ever get over. he was the most wonderful, light, beautiful spirit ever. and he'll be forever missed. >> i loved that boy so much. i just can't talk without cracking you know. sorry. >> you know i presented the first movie -- the first screening in california just a week ago, and i was talking about the movie, and i saw a picture of paul and i was affected a little bit and started to get choked up a little bit. and someone in the audience yelled you've got family here vin. and i thought, that's so powerful. and that's such a testament to what we do and what we bring to the table and i think the world
8:37 am
just appreciates that kind of brotherhood and that kind of camaraderie and that kind of family that they see only in this franchise. and when it goes off the screen it's really special. >> but i don't think they understand how much pressure their love puts us under. because pressure can either bust pipes or make diamonds. and we have decided to try our best to allow for the pressure to create diamonds. >> you shouldn't come into this with a heavy heart. everyone's first instinct is to be sad and bound. but this is the same "fast & furious" we're all used to but it's bigger and busier. >> as paul would say, you've got to promote, dog. >> it's seeing the ending of the film without giving it away obviously, or giving too much of the plot line away. how do you feel that it really honored him? >> oh man. i don't think there was any better way to honor him. it was such -- it was graceful it was classy it was elegant, it was everything that it needed to be.
8:38 am
and i think -- i don't think there's one person that's going to disagree with that when they see the ending of this film. and i'm just extremely happy of the way it was creatively done. >> we all knew that it was our job to leave the legacy for someone we loved and someone the world loved. and that's why the ending is as precious as it is. >> vin, do you want to lead us in a toast as you do as the sort of father figure of this family? >> i'm just happy that i've got a team like the team we've got here and without this team none of this would have happened. i love all of you. i'm just grateful. >> hear hear! >> to family. >> to family. >> well it should be pointed out that before paul walker died, he had completed 85% of the film and once vin diesel and the rest of the cast got the blessing of walker's family they felt they needed to go on they needed to finish the film
8:39 am
for paul's legacy and his fans. and we're going to have much more with the cast coming up in our next hour as well. and guys of course "furious 7" opens nationwide april 3. a lot of people looking forward to this one. >> natalie, you're practically a cast member at this point. >> i feel like i'm a member of their family. >> you are. thank you. up next oscar winner turned rock star the one and only al pacino pays a visit to studio 1a. but first, this is "today."

8:42 am
how do i look? >> honestly? >> if this relationship is going to go the distance mary i think we should be honest with one another. >> okay. well you look slightly ridiculous. >> nah. i look sharp. >> al pacino welcome back. how are you? >> hi. well thank you. >> it's been a while. i'm glad to see you here. how do you like the sound of that rock star? >> i've always wanted to play a -- someone who can sing and dance. and even though i can't -- >> that's a good question. when they came to you about this role did they say to you, al can you sing? >> no actually. they assumed. by being italian and all, i guess that most -- no. this guy, dan foley, who wrote and directed was so keen on my playing the role. he's just wonderful, by the way. he's a wonderful person. he wrote "crazy stupid love" and
8:43 am
he just saw me in the role. and i think when a director sees you in a part even though you might not feel that way -- i felt that way about "godfather". when francis copala wanted me i thought he's wrong. but he so wanted me. and made it possible for -- the studios didn't want me at the time at all. >> for "godfather"? >> yeah well i was unknown at the time. but he fought for me. it was part of his vision. all of the characters. don, jimmy khan, sonny, robert duvall. it was all his vision. and so this guy has me as a rock star and it's who he saw in his head. >> were you nervous to get out? you've done everything in acting. and you can take on any role. but to sing on camera is the whole different animal. >> i know it is. >> were you nervous?
8:44 am
>> well i was nervous. i had good support. like dan knew people. musical people who worked with me. and i did a thing with "chicago" at the -- >> greek theatre. >> greek theatre. >> were you there? thank you, mark. so we were at the greek theatre, and there "chicago" was playing, and dan folderman arranged during intermission i would come on as danny collins, the character in the movie, and he would introduce me. and they were so good about it because they said we have an actor here working on his role. >> unknown guy. >> unknown. and he says if you would stick around it's al pacino playing danny collins. and i went out there with thousands and thousands of people and the chicago band behind me and i sang this song. i was so glad i had the
8:45 am
character to play. because if i just came on without any character -- >> jennifer garner was here a couple days ago, my little birdie and she tells me this song "hey baby doll," you sang everywhere you went on the set. >> i had to. >> were you just trying to stay in character or drive people crazy? >> no i just knew that i would -- i had my little son at the time tell me -- i would say, antoine, how does it go again? and he would say " ♪ hey baby ♪ and he would get the right note. and i would lose the -- what is it the notes, or music of it. and just lose it. so i would sing it as much as i could. because there's nothing in the world like singing a song and forgetting it while you're singing it. forgetting the lyrics. >> you mentioned you've got a young son. how old? >> now he's 14. >> 14 years old. this may sound like a weird
8:46 am
question to ask you. but does he understand what a big deal you are you? >> well i try to keep him out of it. but i think -- you know he's starting to get it a little bit, when he sees the crowds. no he does sort of understand i'm famous. it's there only when it's there, you know. it's only when it's up. but -- do your children understand? >> try to keep a line between the two, but i have a feeling you're someone when he gets a little older he's going to be so proud of his dad. >> oh gee, wow. i hope so. i feel very great about him. he's really special. so is my daughter -- my daughters. >> life is good. >> life seems to be. i'm still standing here as they say. we're sitting here. >> keep doing it all right? this one is called "danny collins." don't make it ten years between the next visit, all right? >> well okay. i'll just come by. it's very friendly here. >> come by any time. danny collins is playing now in select theaters.

savannah? >> thank you so much. look who is here. giada de laurentiis. we're giving a challenge. can you get dinner on the table in 35 minutes or less? >> and you can. >> we knee giada can. but can we are the evident of us? >> savannah you can. >> first, this is "today" on nbc.
8:48 am
8:49 am
we are back with something new in today's kitchen, week night wonders. all this week we are featuring healthy meals you can whip up in 35 minutes or less. all you need is giada de laurentiis in your kitchen. talented "today" contributor. the gang is downstairs. all they have to do is eat. >> all right. >> so commence eating gang while we teach how to make this. >> they're going to warn you about it. we start with kale pesto. have you ever made a pesto? >> no i have not. >> do you like pesto? >> i love pesto. >> traditionally, it's made with basil and parsley. we're going to change it up and
8:50 am
use baby kale. this is the difference. this is what baby kale looks like you can touch it. >> yes. get to know it. >> this is regular kale. >> that's that chewy kind. >> this don't use, because it's just too tough. the baby kale is great. we use some walnuts. quarter cup of walnuts. hold on hold on. one garlic clove. >> just dump it in there? >> dump it in there. i'm telling you, you can do this. orange juice and orange zest is the key to bringing it to life. orange juice, and i just use regular -- buy an orange. >> orange juice, orange zest. >> yes, the zest of the orange. and remember zest the orange before you juice it. once you cut the orange then it's -- >> i'm going to pretend i understood that. >> kale. >> throw it in there. >> you can find this at the grocery store these days usually either in bulk -- >> what's the other kind rubbery kind called regular kale? >> yes. lots of different kale -- but this is the best kind. and i found that for jade because kale is not something that kids really like to eat,
8:51 am
this is a great way to incorporate greens into their diet. >> smart. >> yes! so we are going to put the lid on. actually i'm going to put some salt and red pepper flakes. i just put a tiny bit. not spicy, but brings out the flavor. >> all right. okay. >> okay. press start. >> i'm going to teach -- >> it's not on. there we go. >> break it all up. this is how it's broken up. now you stop it. now you take the lid off. you want to add the olive oil later. >> a dash? >> no two-thirds of a cup. >> oh wow. >> ready? >> how do you know? >> there you go. you can measure it out for yourself. i know because i've done a lot of pesto. measure everything out and you're good to go. >>. >> am i still going? >> you want to make sure it comes together. see? >> okay. >> done. there we go. we take this off. and we're going to dump a cup of parmesan cheese. >> let me ask this.
8:52 am
why do you have to do it piece by piece? >> well the olive oil you want to add as it's combining, and the parmesan cheese heats up with the blade. and this you don't want to change the texture. it can get rubbery. you could do it that way. and the flavor might be different. >> trying to learn. >> >> okay done. so -- forget it. come over here. >> this is what it looks like. now, you can make this in advance, even the day before if you like. then the whole trick to making a dinner in 35 minutes is start with the pasta, because that's what takes the longest to cook. so they say usually eight to ten minutes for the pasta. so in those eight to ten minutes, you could do that. >> any rhyme or reason why you choose this particular pasta? >> yes, the whole idea you'll find very soon when your daughter starts to eat food kids like pasta, but different shapes. these are known as gimelli, in italian means twins. and two twins hug together. i like to tell stories, because it helps make it interesting for her. >> gang how are you liking
8:53 am

8:54 am
>> ten seconds to describe the lettuce. >> en dive radicchio, green. put it any way you want. couple minutes each side. and you grill it. and then you flip it. you chop it up. >> looks delicious. >> balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and you are done. >> these guys are pigging out down there. >> how is it? >> so good. >> goes a long way. delicious. >> remember 35 minutes cooking, start with whatever takes longest. make everything else while the pasta is cooking. >> giada, thank you so much. gang good job. >> thank you. >> we're doing a whole week of this. weeknight wonders. check out the recipes on we'll be back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc.

9:02 am
that didn't work obviously. >> did you really want to veto it? >> we -- you know no. i mean, we wanted him to do what made him happy. but we were also -- when you're 18, you're pretty selfish. >> sure. >> but you think about it, and in 1999, there was no facebook. >> no twitter. >> there was no twitter. >> no instagram. >> so i think social media is the way of the campaign, and it also is happening earlier and earlier, which makes me more and more scared. >> more and more money, the earlier you launch your campaign, the more money you have to raise. it's interesting that he's not giving the speech in our home state of texas. >> no. >> he's going to virginia. >> virginia liberty university. so kind of interesting. your dad announced his speech in iowa. >> i guess -- it's a swing state. and virginia has become a swing state. >> i think he's doing that at 10:00 a.m. >> all right. >> and we're off. >> pizza delivery. >> i love this. >> it's the best ever. pope francis has said that all he wants to do or one of the
9:03 am
things he does miss in his new position of course, is the ability to just go out and not be recognized at a pizzeria. this is what pope francis said. on saturday, you ask, and guess what it comes from heaven. in naples specifically. a pizzeria owner hand-delivered the pope a pizza. now this was a risky move. you know that. you jump a security fence, let alone one with the pope on the other side. that pizza and you might go flying. >> people give kind of strange things to famous people. i'm sure you guys have received flowers -- >> we get food on the plaza all of the time. people bring certain specialties from their home state that they love. and they want to share with us here all of the time. >> have you ever gotten anything as messy as a pizza? that could go awry. if that pizza messed up his white rope? >> he got it to go. that's the best part. literally. he's in the pope mobile. that's better than a
9:04 am
drive-threw. >> the big question, did he eat the pizza? >> he can't eat it. >> do you guys like ariana grande? >> "bang bang" was our original song for the summer. >> she sat in that chair. >> what? i feel very lucky. >> that's right. >> okay. she was on "the tonight show" with jimmy fallon and showed off her celine dion impression during a duet with "beauty and the beast." ♪ certain as the sun ♪ ♪ ♪ >> okay. so one of my favorite interviews i've ever done was with celine dion. and i -- she is so great, of course. but i told her i sing her song
9:05 am
in meatloaf for my go-to karaoke. >> okay. so you've got to do it. >> now i'm thinking meatloaf. ♪ that's when the wind was so cold ♪ >> who was that? >> that's celine dion! excuse me. >> that's a great impression. >> what's yours? >> i don't have one. >> what's your go-to impression. come on, al. >> i really don't. >> go to meatloaf now. go ahead. >> they do kind of sound -- >> baby -- >> is that strange? >> go meatloaf. let's see. ♪ i would do anything for love but i won't do that ♪ >> wow. powerful. >> they like it. >> powerful. >> crowd-pleaser. look at tamron's face. >> i'm just begging for me. that's what my heart is telling me. >> yeah, give me more. >> i didn't know that celine and meatloaf were from texas. that's what i was thinking. wow. >> they're southern.

9:07 am
>> because i said -- >> tamron really lives the life. >> not at all. >> yes, you do, girl. >> just a few hours before that, my mom was in town and i was making chicken pot pies with sage biscuits. >> and then we've got your weekend. >> my mom was also in town. she came yesterday. and it's so funny because my daughter has become a 2 year-old. like, overnight. so look at that little -- >> aww! >> she looks just like you. >> she is so cute. >> look at her sweater. >> i know. but she -- we told her, grammy is coming. and the most -- the hardest part about being away from my family is that she thinks grammy is right down the street. so every saturday morning, i'm like what do you want to do today? grammy's house? and i'm like, oh no, it takes a plane and some cash. >> do you skype? >> we facetime a lot. she is having coffee and she is
9:08 am
having leche. we told her grammy is coming and it was too early. we totally over -- she over anticipated it. so every time the dinger would ring, grammy! and then it wasn't. and then melt. there was some tantrums happening. >> and then -- >> what did you do? >> let's get to natalie first. natalie had perhaps a pretty terrific weekend, i would say. #vindiesel, spilling the name of his child exclusively. >> sweet story. >> yeah, that was just such a touching moment. i had a chance to obviously sit down with the entire cast. you're going to see that coming up in just a little bit. a little bit more of that interview i did earlier. i did get a chance to fly over the skies of l.a. with vin diesel. we had a little one-on-one. and he got very personal. while the movie is being premiered we're already starting to see some early screenings. he did say that during that
9:09 am
time, his partner was having their child. so he actually left one of the screenings early to go be with his partner, and just a week and a half ago, he had a little baby girl, his fourth child. and he told me that he named his daughter pauline, after, of course his very close friend paul walker, who died while making the film. and it was such a close personal friend, soul mate brother. so he said he felt like paul was in the room. he said his mother even felt it. and he said while i was cutting that umbilical cord, there was you know, no one else that i wanted to carry on with his name. and i wanted to make sure that paul was always in my life and in my heart. and by naming his daughter, pauline, he now continues with his legacy with her beautiful name. guys? >> sweet. >> sweet story. >> really is. >> and you could tell natalie was getting teary-eyed which is
9:10 am
why i love her. >> i was like, oh! >> sweet, yeah. very heart felt moment. >> thanks, natalie. >> and everybody is talking about the ending. this tribute to paul walker. cannot wait to see that. i'm not used to getting out from the middle chair to do weather. >> tell us what you did over the weekend while you walk. >> it wasn't worth it. >> i meerkated breakfast. >> can you use meerkat as a verb? >> meerkat. >> what did you make for breakfast? >> i made nikki pancakes i made myself little mini omelettes. egg white omelettes. you can't find it now once it's done, it's done. that's that. more snow in chicago. they have been getting a pretty good dusting of snow. but some of the outlying suburbs really picked up a lot, and there's some problems on the roads. this will end relatively quickly. we're looking at about 2 to 5 inches of snow from northern illinois into central indiana. and then we've got a lot of wet
9:11 am
weather down through florida. so all the spring breakers down there central florida, tampa we're looking at some rain. orlando is going to see some showers, as well. but then we'll gradually get some clearing and just have some hit or miss showers and thunderstorms. but look at this. between tampa and daytona, right around orlando, we're talking about 1 to 2 inches of rain. that's what's going on arou good morning, i'm meteorologist bill henley. it feels like winter outside. bundle up if you're heading out the door and don't forget your sunglasses. lots of sunshine, breezy and chilly too. upper 30s and low 40s. about 15 degrees colder than normal for this time of the year. chill in the air tomorrow morning, not all that much warmer tomorrow afternoon. the warmup will come with some wet weather later wednesday and thursday when it will be closer to 70 degrees. slight chance of thunderstorms thursday, then drying out as we head toward the weekend. have a great day. two texans up here. who do they not realize is from texas? >> meatloaf. >> we should have known! with a name like meatloaf.

9:21 am
if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve, or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. you may be able to get up to 12 months at no cost. losing your chex mix too easily? deploy the boring potato chip decoy bag. with a variety of tastes and textures only chex mix has twenty bags of interesting. pick your mix.
