this? >> savannah, investigators are scrambling to investigate the reports out of jordan that two american soldiers were killed along with some jordanian forces when a jordanian military officer or police officer of some kind reportedly opened fire, went on a shooting spree at a u.s. training facility there in jordan. the reports are still very sketchy. we've seen these kinds of reports before in iraq and afghanistan where friendly forces have turned their fire on americans. it's unclear whether the americans were the target, according to officials, because palestinians were also killed. the investigation is still under way. >> we'll keep in touch with you, mick, this morning as we learn let's turn now to the presidential race. scrutiny on the campaign trail as republican presidential tomorrow night's debate we'll talk exclusively with the
but first let's bring in nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning to you. tomorrow night's republican debate, an ben carson has come discrepancies in his life story. it's a compelling and powerful life story that he's parlayed into a successful presidential campaign, but this morning carson insists that he's not being vetted but is being ben carson's political future may depend on how well he weathers questions about his past. >> it's not particularly getting under my skin. obviously it's helping me. >> reporter: carson raising a stunning $3.5 million in one week as scrutiny grows over a claim to scholarship offer to west point, a violent youth, and acts protecting white classmates during a 1968 race riot, carson consistently dismissing his critics. >> you're asking me about something that occurred 50 years ago and you expect me to have
the details on it. forget about it. it's not going to happen. >> reporter: one british newspapers revealing an inside like at carson's maryland home described as a homage to himself, complete with paintings of carson, one over the fireplace and another side by side with jesus. the home, like a museum, with awards, certificates and personal memorabilia. carson's chief competitor donald trump isn't letting up, zeroing in on carson's description of his path violence as pathological. >> if you have a pathological disease, that's a problem. it's a serious statement when you say you have a pathological disease because as i understand it you can't really cure it. >> reporter: trump's latest showstopper, leading "saturday night live" to its best ratings in three years despite mixed reviews. one latino group protesting trump's appearance promising comedian larry david will get its payout even though he heckled trump as a joke. >> trump's a racist! >> it's larry david. what are you doing, larry?
>> i heard if i yelled that, they'd give me $5,000. [ applause ] >> as a businessman, i fully respect that. >> reporter: also under fire, marco rubio is trying to put to rest lingering questions about his finances, releasing two new years of charge card statements that show a pattern of overlapping personal and legislative spending. as a florida legislator. and one deal about trump's personal buying onography now coming under scrutiny as well. trump considering being george h.w. bush's running mate back in 1988, but he insists it was not his idea. the potential bush/trump ticket was first revealed in a new biography about bush's life. the book claims trump asked a bush aide to vet him, that the 41st president said that was a strange and unbelievable idea. trump says it was the other way around and that the former aide said that trump would make a great vice president. matt? >> peter alexander, thanks very much. reince priebus is the chairman
committee. mr. priebus, good to see you, good morning. >> good morning, matt. >> let's talk about ben carson. when someone runs for president and that person has no real political experience and no record in public office to run on and they decide to run on the elements of an interesting and inspiring life story, are specific and pointed questions about elements of that life story appropriate? >> well, look. i would marriage some questions are appropriate, but i do believe that this is a totally crazy obsession over incredible details from 30 and 40 years ago, whether it be this issue or some of the other issues highlighted earlier in the segment among other candidates. the fact is, you know, we kind of wish the media would just be obsessed or half obsessed with hillary clinton's lies of many years and -- >> except that dr. carson -- >> four people died in benghazi and e-mails and everything
>> dr. carson saying he's being targeted and not vetted and if he is, he says he's being vetted more severely than anybody else including barack obama who faced years of birther questions and hillary clinton, who you just mentioned, who has faced decades of questions about her marriage, her personal life, her e-mails, 11 hours in a chair in front of congress just a couple of weeks ago. is he being more severely vetted than anyone else? >> yeah, but the difference is that the media is actually, you know -- they do have an actual vendetta or at least an agenda against some of these candidates. in regard to hillary clinton, the media sort of, yeah, they cover it, but they cover it with a laugh and a wink and a nod and you know, isn't it horrible she had to sit in a chair for 11 hours. i mean that's the tone of the coverage of hillary clinton.
let's move on, whereas, with the republicans it's, hey, can you believe that, you know, 40 years ago this happened or that, hey, you know, this credit card over here, i mean, those are things that might be interesting for, you know, a question, but not an obsession. i would say that hillary clinton clinton's past is something that people ought to be obsessed with. >> let's be clear here. if ben carson has woven stories like the west point story into the fabric of his interesting and inspiring life story, doesn't it make it fair game for questions? >> sure. and people asked the question and he answered it. so i mean, you know, i think, okay, asked and answered, and i think people need to move on to the next question. i'm not saying that questions aren't appropriate. of course, people can ask questions, but i think you get to a place where all the questions have been asked. >> real, real quickly. i know you wrote a letter to the chairman of nbc news following the last debate on cnbc. there were a lot of questions and a lot of criticism about the tone of that debate, and you suspended ties with this network for future debates. i also know you've spoken to the chairman of nbc news, andy lack. are you making progress in terms
network on future debates? >> well, look. i mean here's the issue. this was an issue in regard to cnbc. abc's the parent organization. >> nbc. >> my belief -- nbc, sorry. nbc is the parent organization. my belief is that there has to be some consequences for what we saw a couple weeks ago in denver. you know, people did something that -- that we didn't obviously -- it wasn't promised. it wasn't expected. and there has to be consequences. and so, yeah, i did have a good conversation with andy lack, and, by the way, we're going to be talking to the candidates about the future of that debate, but we're looking forward to the debate this week, and i think it's going be a much better debate, and i think it's going to be a good time to put that cnbc debate behind us. >> reince priebus, the chairman of the rnc.
always good to see you. thank you for your time. >> and to the white house, president obama and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will try to mend their fractured relationship, the first time they will meet face to face since the israeli leader waged an intense battle on the iran nuclear deal. >> that meeting comes amid disturbing photo showing a palestinian woman attacking a security guard in the west bank. the guard was checking the woman's i.d., when she pulled out a knife and lunged at him. the israeli military said the guard suffered minor injuries and was able to shoot and injure that woman, the latest incident in a wave of violence in that region where 11 israelis and more than 70 palestinians have died in the past two moths. it's shocking video. >> it is indeed. and now to the crash of that russian passenger plane. this morning officials are growing more confident that it was a bomb that took down the jet. nbc's chief global correspondent bill neely is on the story again for us this morning.
where does the investigation stand? >> reporter: good morning, savannah. egypt seems to be denying this morning that this was an inside job, but it's feeling under such pressure to find the cause of this crash that it's hitting back, describing one report that investigators are 90% sure this was a bomb as an outright lie. it says there's an intelligence and media war against it, and it is denying allegations of lax security here at the airport from where the plane took off. egyptian officials say cctv footage of baggage handlers and security the day the plane took off shows nothing unusual. security was more than excellent, they say, and no worker is under suspicion. they denied reports of equipment failure and workers not being searched properly. but this airport official clearly wasn't used to being thoroughly searched. no, he says, i don't take off my shoes when i come through here. fine. then i won't go in.
a bomb in the cargo hold has sent shock waves through world airlines. >> it's -- as a result of what it's alleged to be, i'm afraid it's another game-changer for the industry. >> reporter: israel won't confirm reports that its intelligence heard isis fighters boasting about taking down the plane. one egyptian investigator told the reuters news agency they're 90% sure it was a bomb based on the final noise in the cockpit. investigators are now searching sand from the site for evidence of explosive residue. the fbi has agreed to help, asked by the russians. >> i hope it's a wake-up call to putin, and i hope to some extent it's a wakeup call to us. >> russia still waiting for definitive proof of what caused its worst airline disaster. and the world may have to wait a long time. egypt is leading this investigation, and it's in no hurry at the moment to confirm any theory. matt, savannah. >> all right.
bill neely in cairo, thank you. here at home an investigation is under way into a tragic accident just outside of washington, d.c. at least four people killed, 14 others injured when a truck collided with a church van. tamron is here with more on that story. >> those images are just stirring. what a sad story, guys. officials had still trying to piece together what happened there. first responders saying this is one of the most difficult crash scenes they've ever handled. a horrifying scene sunday after a pickup truck collided with a church van, killing four and injuring 14 others about 16 miles northeast of washington, d.c. >> 1200 block of chill lum. multiple vehicle accident. one was fully involved. at least two priority 4s and nine priority 1s at this point in time. >> fire officials investigating the scene overnight in hyattsville, maryland, believe the pickup truck may have rear ended a passenger vehicle before losing control and crossing into
oncoming traffic. the van then hit the truck, setting the truck on fire. >> first we thought it was a house on fire because the flames were about the height of that tree. >> neighbors nearby say they tried to help save the victims by pulling them out of the van, some december principally using their own water to help put out the fire. >> somebody just came out of their house with a hose and they were trying to spray down the car. >> authorities say six children and eight adults were transported to area hospitals. four adult and four children were in critical condition. >> any time you deal with children and fatalities and serious injuries, it does affect firefighters, medics, and police officers. >> fire officials say the adults in the van were mostly this their 20s and 30s. children ranged in age from 4 to 10 years old. >> tamron, thank you. keep us posted. officials in texas are on edge this morning after a district judge was shot in her driveway in what police believe was a targeted attack. the shooter still on the loose this morning. nbc's janet shamlian has the story from austin.
janet, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. nbc news has learned that judge julie kosurek has previously received threats over cases in which she was a presiding judge, and this morning investigators and officials are poring over hundreds of her cases hoping it will provide some clue as to whomever tried to take up her life. and this morning officials are poring over hundred of her cases hoping it will provide some clue as to whomever tried to take her life. new urgency this morning as austin police step up their manhunt searching this upscale austin neighborhood, looking for whomever took four shots at the district judge in the driveway of her home. >> four gunshots, very quick succession, and there wasn't any spacing, just bang, bang, bang, bang. >> reporter: was it a targeted attack? authorities are combing through hundreds of cases presided over by the judge trying to identify who might want her dead. other judges are shaken. >> there has been a greater awareness, let me put it that way, when everybody is paying
>> 17 now party to gunshot wound with engine 10. >> reporter: she was returning home from a high school football game according to the "austin american darby statesman" newspaper. a bag of trash or garbage can had been placed in front of her security gate in front of her driveway requiring the driver of the car to stop the vehicle and remove it. it was at that time, sources said, that kosurek was shot. >> the per caller, the assailant has left but do not know where they are. >> reporter: it was a close call. law enforcement officials say the judge was wounded in the upper body and face area, but by shrapnel and glass, not a direct hit from a bullet. her injuries are said to be serious but not life-threatening. >> will not be transported. >> reporter: kusorek hears more than 1,000 felony cases a year. colleagues say she's rational, reasonable, and fair. >> if you thought about someone being very upset with the judge, she's not the type of judge you would think. >> reporter: officials have released no description of the suspect and have been very tight-lipped about this
investigation. meanwhile, here in austin today, a heightened sense of concern over security among the judicial community. matt and savannah, back to you. >> you can imagine a lot of frayed nerves there, janet. thank you. take a look at the scene in mississippi where cars were swallowed in an ihop parking lot. 600 feet long before the ground opened up. witnesses say they heard several loud booms and the power was knocked out. >> thankfully nobody was engineers will be at scene causing the collapse and the ihop had just opened last week. well, it is day four of al's record-setting rokerthon 2 marathon of the -- what we'll call a monster monday. al has a very long day ahead of him. al, how are you holding up? >> i'm doing a great. we've got so many people who

making headlines this morning. the pentagon is now investigating reports of a deadly attack at a training facility in jordan. a gunman apparently opened fire, killing at least three people, including two american soldiers. >> president obama and israeli prime minister netanyahu are trying to put their public clash over the iran nuclear deal behind them. they're meeting at the white house later today. this is their first face-to-face in more than a year. engineers are being brought in to figure out what caused a large section of an ihop parking lot in mississippi to collapse over the weekend, swallowing 15 cars. no injuries were reported. we want to begin this half hour with a campus controversy that's making headlines all across the country. the university of missouri's governing board is holding an emergency meeting this morning to address growing calls for the school's president to resign. a group of students, including dozens of football players, are upset at the way racially charged incidents are being handled on campus, and those players say they won't play again until the president is gone. nbc's jacob rascon has that story.
jacob, good morning. >> reporter: matt, good morning. it started with a small group of students who wanted their president to listen to their concerns, and now everyone from the football team to dozens of faculty to lawmakers from both parties say president tim wolf has to go. >> first down and more, there it is! >> reporter: while the mizzou tigers lost this weekend, they are fighting a much larger battle off the field. the team standing with many of their fellow students, faculty, even lawmakers from both parties, demanding university president tim wolfe resign or be fired. the tigers' head coach tweeting this photo of the team and coaching staff with the caption "we are united. we are behind our players." a tipping point in a movement vowing to protest, walk out, and
until wolf is gone. the anger stems from alleged acts of racism on campus in recent months and what many say is wolf's woeful inadequate response. black students, including the student body president, say they have faced repeated shouts of the "n" word, and last month a swastika smeared in human feces on a dorm building wall. when the group concerned student 1950 named after the year black students were first admitted to the university called on the president for action, they say he appeared apathetic. >> what do you think. >> reporter: and another confrontation over the weekend. >> it's because you don't believe that you have the equal opportunity for success. >> you don't believe you have the opportunity for equal opportunity. >> reporter: my apology is long overdue, president wolf wrote. my behaveior seemed like i didn't care. but that was not my intention.
he said the only change planned is a previously planned diversity strategy set to begin next april. >> we're tired of statements. we're tired of, you know, the p.r. teams writing on behalf of our leaders. we want real change. >> reporter: graduate student jonathan butler's response is the most dramatic. now in his eighth day without food, an individual and a university seemingly at their breaking point. many students and faculty have organized a walkout beginning later this morning. that emergency meeting with the board of curators begins at 10:00 a.m., and the next missouri football game is on saturday. if there's no resolution by then and the football team backs out, the university could lose $1 million. guys, back to you. >> all right. that's a big story, jacob ras cone. pretty extraordinary. jacob, thank you very much. >> let's check in with al once again taking america by storm with rokerthon 2. hey, al. >> rokerthon on "today" is powered by netjets. travel without compromise with the worldwide leader in private
aviation. >> hey, guys. so we're now in utah officially. i love it. and so we've got members of the youth nation here. we've got the byu acapella group. this is really exciting stuff. let's get to -- it's freezing out here. it's about 28 degrees. let's give you your utah forecast and show you what we've got as far as utah is concerned. okay. so we fly the rokerthon jet into utah, boom! look at that. 53 degrees in cedar city for a high. the four corners 62. vernon 50 and salt lake city will see a temperature of 57 degrees for a high. we're also looking at unsettled weather in the west. we're going to be watching a big storm system coming in. it's already brought a foot of snow into parts of california. this is going to bring heavy mountain snows from the sierras into the rockies and some strong tomorrows possible tuesday night, hail, damaging winds,
can't rule out an isolated tornado. and as we move on into wednesday, look at this. we've got an enhanced risk of tornados from missouri to western indiana. >> okay. so we've officially done the forecast for utah, so we're going to plant the rokerthon flag and give it to these young men. there you go, guys.

up with our secret weapon, air rokerthon and the netjets team. powered by netjets, rokerthon taking america by storm. then we jumped west to portland, oregon and the chinese garden. >> welcome you to the city of poured land. >> reporter: and a sewing but warm greeting. what's your name in. >> delaney. >> i love that name. los angeles dropping back to -- running behind. hungry in sacramento. mr. roker, can you do an interview. >> another surprise. >> nat mo, a little in and out burger. does it get any better? as sun was beginning to set, weather changed our plans. we were supposed to go to lake tahoe. there was a snow squall and we couldn't get there. had to divert, now in reno, nevada. got to wyoming we were late and tired. but energized by a huge crowd. >> roker! roker! >> that nobody saw coming.

joint pain and damage... can go side by side. ask how enbrel can help relieve joint pain and help stop joint damage. enbrel, the number one rheumatologist-prescribed biologic. >> we are back at 7:44. this morning on "rossen reports" a dangerous trend. >> this morning jeff rossen is here with a powerful and personal experiment. >> reporter: good morning to you. i talk about dangerous behavior all the time and i stand here and call people out when they are wrong. well, this morning something a little different. i am calling myself out. just a couple of weeks ago i was doing a story about a different unrelated topic involving my kids. i showed this picture. we're going to call it up right here of my kids right here on the "today" show. there is that photo. my kids love trains so i often took them down to the train tracks to take photos. well, just minutes after the story aired i was bombarded by
e-mails, tweets and facebook messages telling me how dangerous it is, how could i, people die this way. to be honest. i never thought about it. always thought that i would see a train coming. i mean, it is a train after all, but, still, i looked into it and boy was i wrong. this morning a game-changer for you and for me. you're watching an emergency in progress. they are recording on the tracks and suddenly notice a train. they run for safety, but it's too late. this woman is killed. just weeks ago 16-year-old john was hit and killed, taking these photos with his girlfriend for a school project. >> was too late before they realized the train was coming. >> but this may be the most haunting photo of all. two sisters and their best friend taking selfies on the tracks. what they can't see or hear is that train in the background
just three seconds later all the girls were hit and killed. >> this is absolutely a preventable phenomenon and loss. my girls did not have to lose their life. >> reporter: it's one of the latest trends in photography. people taking selfies, wedding photos, even graduation pictures on active tracks. the photos posted all over social media and what most don't know it's illegal and dangerous. this year alone 291 injured, another 343 killed, trespassing on the tracks. now safety experts are sounding off. >> trains are very loud so people think they are very loud and the truth is they are relatively quiet. if an engineer sees someone on the tracks, even if they apply an emergency brake it takes a mile or more for them to stop. >> reporter: so do you think you could hear a train coming? csx railroad giving us special access to the tracks.
in fact, there are csx workers just off camera here to keep us safe. there's actually a freight train on its way coming down the track all the way in the distance. i'm not sure if you can see the headlines or not. i'm going to stand here with my back to the train not paying attention like so much do when we're on the tracks taking selfies. we'll see how close this train gets before i actually hear it. would i have time to jump out of the way. okay. here comes the train. i don't hear anything at all. it's getting closer and closer and still not a peep. i hear it right now and here it is, look at, that basically right on top of me. they are pretty quiet for as big as they are. boy, that is an amazing example to prove that you just don't have time to jump out of the way. watch again from a different angle this. camera is just inches from the

we'll probably know date it. >> i suspect he will. what's that like to be on "snl" on a saturday night. >> this slow is really crazy. did a quick in and out piece and everything that has to do with the show is fantastic. it actually is. very much a parallel to wwe. that performing in front of a live audience, everything going on. kind of like what you guys do 10,000. everything changes so fast and everything happens so quick and you get handed something, oh, here you go. go for it and everybody is changing costumes and everything is upside down but it all goes together and i will give it to "saturday night live" they do political satire as good or better than anybody else. they kill it. every time an election comes around, every time something is politically involved they have the best impressions and the best take on it. they really do a great job. >> i love how you brought me and willie into this wwe show, millions of phones. >> just a little show you do is similar to that. >> i think one of the things that people like the best of the
shows if you look across the web what, people were interested in. donald trump had a little roll in "snl's" blake parody. you used to call me on the cell phone does he dance like this called me on the cell phone they said do you dance like this >> there you go. donald trump doing "the hotline bling saw the same dance move in 11 or 12 years ago. locks down his feet and gets his butt up and out a little bit. >> it's trump. no? >> you've been trumped. >> i'm ending it. i think it should become a >> already been a thing. have you seen the polls.
he'll remind that. >> i don't think dancing to that has contributed to that. >> a lot of people who support him believe that even though, you know, some people have felt that there was a little much for a presidential candidate that it brought out a different side him so maybe it will work, i don't know. something else that caught our eye. this gator capture, happened in the great state of texas in sugarland, actually the name of the city, where people were shocked to find a 12-foot long 1001 88 hundred-pound alligator. this was in a parking lot with the a little towel over him. a professional gator wrangler actually captured the gator. its nickname is godzilla. >> wow. >> now been taken to the alligator farm and we show you this so that you can say wow and to pose the question to the great jon cena. what would you do? >> i'm going to take the night off from that one and let godzilla be godzilla and praise him in all his alligator glory. that thing is a monster. >> would you just say no.
>> that alligator wrangler. she was quite skilled and brave. borderline insane i would have to say. >> first sought video-of-the-gator and saw it was a woman who was wrangling him. girl power. that's what she does. >> dove right in hon that one. >> as i've been saying all morning we're so glad dylan dreyer is here. >> because we knew that. >> what's happening? >> i'm here. >> what do you do, the weather or something? >> i don't know what's going on. i looked at a thing or two and it is raining in the southeast where actually some heavier pockets of rain could lead to some isolated flash flooding. just keep in mind the ground is very saturated in this area so we do have flash flood watches in effect because of those heavier pockets of rain that we're expecting off and on throughout the day. this area of low pressure will make its way up the east coast and we'll see some heavy rain through north carolina later today and then it moves through virginia as we go into tomorrow and eventually up into the northeast as we go into tuesday evening. we could see some pockets of heavier rain that could end up with about as much as three inches, especially along the east coast of north carolina.

the miners have to go through years. >> this is the face of the rescue mission, politician lawrence goldberg. >> i think he was sent there as a politician to solve the problem, but he starts to understand and in a very human level what they are going through, you know. it's not about the miners down there. it's like my brother, my father, and it becomes so human in that way that this man goes through a real transformation. >> i want you to promise me you do something! >> i can promise you we're going to do everything we did. >> and juliette, it was as much about the stories going on below ground as it was what was happening above ground and camp hope. they were the ones who kept hope alive. >> well, they were the first ones, the women were the first ones to be at gate and yelling. they wouldn't stop shouting and say if this isn't justice we need to know what's going on.
the part but antonio had his own technique. >> every time i would -- i just did this, put everything inside and it actually looked very good because actually you have to be 15, 20 seconds at a time, and then you go off. >> speaking of food, lou, you're a foodie, and i know that you like to cook on set. did you do any of the cooking? >> no disrespect, but they are used to feeding truckers and farmers. plain tan for every meal. i felt like "above a blue" saute plain tans, stans, boiled plantans and at end of the day i was probably feeding 30, 40 people. >> let's get ourself some miners. >> it belongs to the world and we all followed it when it was happening and the fact that it had a grace resolution was for

two important studies to tell you about this morning that could affect your health, and one suggests a potential link between vegetable oil and cancer, and the other finds that many over-the-counter medications may not really work. >> so we called in our trusted nbc medical contributor dr. natalie azar to help us sort this out. natalie, good morning. >> nice to see you guys, good morning. >> let's launch into this new study. vegetable oils and a possible link to cancer. go behind the headlines. what's going on here. >> basically what i want to say from the outset this is not necessarily new news. i can't say that it's completely meritless, but what i want to say is this. just because something can cause a chemical reaction meaning that if you heat up vegetable oil that is sunflower or corn oil at real, really high temperatures it can release or turn into a potentially toxic substance which is called an aldehyde and going from that chemical
has an increased risk of cancer or heart disease or dementia is way too much of a leap so from the study that was reported we're certainly not making any statements of that sort. you can use vegetable oil. just use everything in moderation. the study also went on to say to perhaps use lard for cooking and things like that, things we don't necessarily recommend because of the saturated fat content. >> okay. about this cold and cough medicine, what do -- i found this very interesting. >> yeah. i don't know if you guys use this stuff, but i certainly personally have to say that pseudoephedrine which is the active compound in medicines like sudafed and add ville cold and sinus are incredibly congestion. >> i use both of those. >> exactly. in 2005 pseudoephedrine containing things like pseudoephedrine cold and sinus, for example, were placed behind the counter. you could no longer reach and grab them without giving your name and information. the reason is that people can actually make methamphetamine out of pseudoephedrine, so the
issue here was that so what was used or has been used in its place more regularly is this thing fouled phenylf-for instance, things in dimetapp and brands like this and the study looked at 500 people, put them on placebo or the phenyleffrin and found it was no better than the placebo so the issue is should fda be keeping phenylf-for instance on the market for nasal congestion well. you can still go and get these things, go to the pharmacist. give your name and i.d. >> it is a process but can you still get the products with pseudoephedrine. >> they want to make sure people aren't abusing it for that process. >> people wonder about herbal holistic and others go straight over the counter. >> right. also something especially as parent you want to be very much aware of, that the american academy of pediatrics does not recommend over-the-counter cough and cold remedies for children under the age of four. >> okay.
>> so what does that mean? >> it means all those like, you know, things to help people help cough and things like that we don't really recommend for young kids primarily because a lot of these things can actually contain multiple different ingredients and know what's safe for your child and what not and what we recommend for children is you can give the way i see it, you have two choices; the easy way or the hard way. you could choose a card that limits where you earn bonus cash back. or, you could make things easier on yourself. that's right, the quicksilver card from capital one. with quicksilver you earn unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere. so, let's try this again. what's in your wallet? you never know when it'll be your moment to shine. so don't trust your smile to any regular toothpaste. improved crest 3d white brilliance

down one minute for her. >> she is juggling projects for the stage, television and film including her latest movie "james white" out this friday. >> she plays a cancer stricken mother with a self-destructive son trying to find his way. >> cynthia, good to have you here. >> this movie "james white" was a phenomenon at sundance and about to be a phenomenon at theaters because your performance and christopher's performance are incredible. talk about this role as a cancer survivor it elf is. i know you were going through the loss of your mother at the time this was being shot. what was this role like you to and what drew you to it? >> well, one of the -- many amazing things about this film. josh monn is a first-time filmmaker and so powerful and so individual. never seen anything like it, and it is in large part autobuying figural and my mom died of cancer and his mom as well in the calendar year that we made the film. you know, when you have a terminal illness, you know, the
depictions of that are like the cancer is all that's happening. >> right. >> you know what i mean, and what's so great about this story is you see this mother and son who love each other very much and have a very complicated relationship and all that stuff just doesn't miraculously go away because she's dying. >> i would imagine someone pointing this out with a personal connection and get a chance to go home with your three kids and life and it's like hug time. >> a very hectic. we shot it for 18 days in new york city and then they went to mexican for the mexican shoot, but, yeah, it was -- it was such a whirlwind we just basically didn't see much of our families for three weeks. went home and went to sleep. >> you're used to being busy. you do everything. >> i'm directing a play in previews at the new group. mario camtone, my "sex in the city" alum.
affair" debuting on broadway. >> when do you sleep? >> sometimes i sleep. >> do you have time to relax and just kick it? >> i just spent a very busy year so i've got my eye on december. i'm just heading for that, but it's -- you know, good problems excited about. >> when you go into a role like the one you play in "james white," is it a difficult place for you to go? do you take the experience of watching your mother and do you take your own experience? >> i have to say it was pretty cathartic because it was so fresh. >> mm-hmm. >> and i think my mother had certain things in common with the character that i play. upper west side, bohemian, got her child into the arts because that was her passion so i was actually able to wear not my mother's clothes so much but jewelry. it just made me feel very close to her. >> oh, gosh. >> so interesting your fan base, we, of course, still love miranda from "sex in the city" and also appreciate your growth and the variety of things you've
speaks to who you are as a person but also an an actress, as willie pointed out, allowing this vulnerable part your life to be part of this film and this character. >> it's so -- as an actor it's one of the privileges right. you have things that are painful or confusing in your life and you get a chance to sort of explore that on stage or on screen and our filmmaker said i make things in my own life that i don't understand and trying to come to grips with them intellectually and certainly emotionally, that's one of the ways i do it, you know, it through my art. >> an amazing movie and a great performance and the a lot of oscar voters i suspect will be watching this very closely. congratulations. >> congratulations. >> "james white" opens on friday. up next, if you're planning a holiday vacation and looking at hotel photos online, what you see isn't always what you get. won't believe what we found in a new "rossen reports" live. rossen is here with us right believe me, i put this hair through a lot, every day. that's why i need total repair. l'oreal's total repair 5 shampoo system
