overnight. >> in fact, now the women's track team has the chance to go for more, robin, after that close call bumped by team brazil during a preliminary heat. allyson felix dropping that baton but got a redo with the track all to themselves. much more coming up. >> the latest on the growing scandal in rio. those two american swimmers landing in the u.s. going through customs just moments ago. one swimmer, though, still in brazil. jimmy feigen meeting with police overnight negotiating a deal after new surveillance footage from that gas station incident surfaces. abc's matt gutman is on the scene there for us in rio and has the latest. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey, good morning, robin. what happened at this gas station has become an international incident. now, those two u.s. swimmers are back in the u.s. and jimmy feigen, the man you mentioned, the only swimmer still here, he agreed to pay $11,000 to a charity to get his passport back but despite all of that, brazil still leaving the door open to
charging all four of them. abc news was on that plane with them overnight talking to olympic swimmers gunnar bentz and jack conger, the two men seen in this exclusive video traveling without an entourage keeping to themselves after their night of partying sunday with teammates ryan lochte and james feigen turned into an international incident. >> we have just landed here at miami airport on the flight from rio to miami. gunnar and jack are still in the back of the plane and i spoke to gunnar in the middle of the flight and he said they're really looking forward to being back here in the united states. >> reporter: the last of the four swimmers stuck in rio, feigen spending hours overnight at a police station. his attorney saying he'd have to pay about $11,000 to a charity to get his passport back. this as new videos are coloring in some details of what happened that night. lochte had said robbers had held him and his teammates up at gunpoint but brazilian police
saying the men weren't victims they were vandals destroying this gas station bathroom. after leaving club france at 5:47 a.m. cameras capture them walking around that gas station around 6:00 a.m. watch as one pulls a sign off the wall. lochte seen here stumbles out of the bathroom. police say the swimmers kicked down the door and vandalized the bathroom inside then those four continued on here back towards their taxi and at this point, they allegedly ripped a poster off the wall before being confronted by those security guards. after the men get into their taxi, one of the men police say was a security guard confronts them. they get out of the car. the tape then cuts out for a three-minute chunk. you next see the four swimmers sitting on a curb with their hands up. lochte here in the middle standing to get something out of his pocket. police say a security officer detained them at gunpoint until they paid about $50 for damages. but sources who spoke to all four swimmers overnight tell abc news they were actually forced to hand over $400.
overnight lochte's attorney telling abc news, no matter what happened at the gas station, the swimmers were robbed. police questioned the story from the start especially after seeing this video, the men returning to the olympic village from the gas station with watches, wallets and phones. overnight the u.s. olympic committee calling the athletes' behavior unacceptable saying "we apologize to our hosts in rio and the people of brazil." robin, i want you to take a look at that surveillance camera up there. it captured those four swimmers sitting right down there, a man standing over them with the gun. now, what's amazing here is that both sides, the lawyers for the swimmers and the police say the video proves their point. so the big question is were these four swimmers being extorted for $400 or were they simply being asked to pay for the damage that they allegedly caused? >> trying to get to the beam of that. thank you. we bring in dan abrams. you've seen the headlines here, liar, liar, speedo on fire, real
police call lochte liar. not victim. >> there's no question in my mind that he lied, right. when he initially said publicly we were pulled over in this taxi and then a gun put to my head by these people pretending that they were police officers, that's not what happened, right? furthermore, we didn't know about this vandalism and this incident at the gas station. with all that said, he also may have been robbed. meaning he may have been wrong to do what he did at the gas station, he may have been wrong to publicly embellish the story and it also may be robbery to say to someone with a gun, yeah, you may want to pay us 50 bucks, we're going to take 400. >> what happens no you. >> for ryan lochte, nothing. meaning, he's now in the united states and won't get extradited as a result of this. feigen is the one who really needs to be concerned because he's there. he's the one trying to negotiate a deal right now because if he were to get indicted for either filing a false police claim or for vandalism, et cetera, it's
the last thing he'd want, right? regardless of what the sentence would be up to six months potentially for filing a false police claim, additional for vandalism as a practical matter, what the brazilians want is their reputation back. >> sure, they do. >> it's not -- they don't need feigen behind bars. they want to be able to say to the world, we did what we promised. we kept rio safe and if they can be able to say that in good faith, i think that this will all be worked out in some way or another. >> and the american authorities weighing in saying this is unacceptable behavior. >> that's helpful in resolving this because, again, it says to the brazilian authorities we get it. we get it. this isn't what it initially seemed to the world. >> there was a firestorm on social media, they're referring to them as kids. these are grown men. >> ryan lochte is 32 years old. >> the saga continues. >> dan, thank you. we turn to the race for the white house here this morning and donald trump striking a bit of a new tone overnight
expressing regret in his words over some of his comments and announcing that he's heading to louisiana to meet with communities affected by the devastating floods this morning. abc's tom llamas is on the trail in new orleans and joins us live. hey, tom. >> reporter: david, donald trump and governor michael phelke pend to tour that devastated flood area around baton rouge. now, this trip was put together very quickly. it was never on the official schedule. but it comes at a time that trump is now trying to show a softer side. overnight, a first for donald trump. admitting at times he's gone too far in his personal attacks and now expressing remorse. >> sometimes in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don't choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. i have done that.
and believe it or not, i regret it. >> reporter: this trump, a stark difference from the man who has attacked a gold star family. >> she was standing there, she had nothing to say. she probably -- maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. >> reporter: and hurled vicious insults at other foes. >> they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists. >> you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. now the poor guy, i don't know what i said, ah. i don't remember. >> i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell ya. >> reporter: but now this. >> i do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. >> reporter: this never before seen side of trump now extending even to the victims in louisiana. >> we are one nation. when one state hurts, we all
hurt. >> reporter: the clinton campaign calling it all an act. in a statement saying, donald trump literally started his campaign by insulting people. but trump sees it a different way accusing clinton of lying to voters. >> while sometimes i can be too honest, hillary clinton is the exact opposite. she never tells the truth. >> reporter: and this morning, donald trump out with his first television ad of the general election. >> in hillary clinton's america the system stays rigged against americans. syrian refugees flood in. illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes get to stay collecting social security benefits, skipping the line. our border open, it's more of the same but worse. >> reporter: now, trump does have some catching up to do. in the last two months alone the hillary clinton campaign has spent more than $60 million in tv ads. this right now is a $5 million
ad buy for the trump campaign. it's going to run in five battleground states. >> tom, thanks. joining us kellyanne conway, the newly tapped campaign manager for donald trump. welcome back to the program? thank you for having me. >> congrats on the new role. >> thank you. >> he said sometimes along the way in the heat of the moment you say the wrong thing. but he went further. donald trump saying i do regret it particularly where it may have caused personal pain. what was he talking about? >> he was talking about anyone would feels offended by anything he said and that's all him. you know, he took extra time yesterday going over that speech with a pen so that was a decision he made. those are his words. and i hope that everybody who has criticized him at some point, david, for being insensitive or for mocking someone at least shows some recognition and some forgiveness. >> but you mentioned anyone who's been personally offended by what he said. you know, john mccain early on when he said, you know, he's a
war hero because he was captured. i like those who aren't captured. will he reach out to the khan family personal. >> he may. i hope they heard him and i hope america heard him because of all the people, david, who have been saying, hey, let's get trump to pivot, let's get him to be more presidential. that is presidential. it's also presidential today to have him and governor pence going to louisiana in a decidedly nonpolitical event, no press allowed, going to help people on the ground who are in need. >> you mentioned a moment ago these were his words, he worked on this speech personally but you're a couple of days in as the new campaign manager. what he said about the khans was weeks ago. why the regret now? some people might say was that you? >> it was not me. that's all donald trump. he's the candidate. >> why the regret now. >> it's an expression of regret. perhaps he felt it before but he expressed it now and i think if you look at the fullman of the man, this is somebody who those of us who know him personally see day by day. he just promoted a woman to campaign manager without ever mentioning to you my gender,
which i think is quite remarkable. i'm insulted routinely by liberal men everywhere yet a conservative man promoted me to campaign manager. that's symptomatic of who he is, all the women he's promoted and compensated at the trump organization. that's important to voters as well. you need to look at the full measure of the man. >> as we move forward we've heard this line of attack about hillary clinton's health saying that she doesn't have the mental and physical stamina to take on isis and our many adversaries. hillary clinton is 68 and donald trump is 70 and suggesting she has stamina issues. how do you hi this will sit with some? you heard the new pew numbers down significantly almost 20 points down to hillary clinton with women. >> we'll fight for everybody's vote and we recognize that all issues are women's issues. i have not in the 28 years of doing this ever heard the term men's issues. it's just believed men can ham all issues and we can only talk about health care or education.
we can ham all i'm pretty sure as women. >> on her stamina, do you think there's a real question about her stamina. >> donald trump is difficult to keep up with him and hard to remember he's 70 on a daily basis. more energetic than most of us on the trail. hillary clinton insults donald trump every time she's asked about a policy position of her own she takes an opportunity to insult donald trump. she'll insult donald trump and we'll talk directly to the voters and i hope, i absolutely hope this campaign pivots to substance because we want to challenge her on the issues. we want ask her to own obamacare. ate father pulling out of 30 states and 11 of the 15 states saying they suffered 1.5 billion in combined lots just because of obamacare, the affordable care act. that's right. people feel less prosperous and less safe. i would rather lose an election that was based on style and a content-free cacophony if it doesn't mean we can win on substance. >> we have to go. the trip to louisiana, safe trip.
kellyanne, thanks so much for being. >> thank you. we turn to louisiana where those deadly devastating floods have killed at least 13 people. thousands are still in shelters there this morning and president obama is under fire for not cutting short his vacation and visiting the state. abc's jon karl joins us now and, jon, what are critics saying and how is the white house responding? >> reporter: the president's facing some tough criticism from those in louisiana who don't like the images of him playing golf in martha's vineyard while their state deals with the deadly impact of those floods. the advocate newspaper says he should back his bags and get to the state. it's time for president obama to visit the most anguished state in the union. last week it brought misery and the president continued his very indication at martha's vineyard, a playground for the posh and well connected. no president really goes on vacation. the white house points out he's been getting regular briefings on this. he's dispatched his homeland
security secretary and the fema director to the state and offered any assistance the administration can offer. >> i know the locals there are very happy with the fema response, but they are questioning about president obama. all right. thank you so much. and the president not the only one under fire. we, the national media also being criticized. this is the worst storm since sandy and they feel there should be more coverage on what those people in louisiana are going through right now. >> which is why we've been trying to put it on the map every night but we are thinking about those families. in the meantime, we'll turn to last night at the olympics and a lightning fast evening, you could say, superstar athletes stealing the show on the track. team usa bringing home a slew of golds and usain bolt proving once again why he's called the fastest man alive second only to abc's t.j. holmes. he's at our olympics desk in rio. hey, t.j. >> hey, good morning, guys. i was in that stadium for the race last night. i'm so upset i missed the race because i blinked.
also yesterday, a very bizarre scene on the track for the u.s. women's 4x100 relay team. you got to see this to believe it. check it out. and there's the gun as bolt jumps out of the box. >> reporter: it was a lightning fast night at the olympics. usain bolt sprinted into the history books. >> he makes it look easy. >> reporter: the fastest man in the world won gold in the 200-meter for the third straight olympics. bolt cruised past the finish line with, of course, a smile. >> he sees how much of a lead he has and to the finish. >> reporter: the superstar celebrated his eighth gold medal with his lightning bolt pose. >> disaster for the united states. >> reporter: for american superstar allyson felix, more drama on the track. >> allyson is bumped. >> reporter: with felix botching her handoff in the preliminary heat of a 4x100 relay but watch, team brazil's runner steps over her lane, making contact with felix before he handoff. >> safely made there. >> reporter: the u.s. filed a protest and was granted a
do-over. the team took to the track again nearly eight hours later. this time all alone. they posted the fastest qualifying time and tonight will go for gold. >> better run, he's got it. >> reporter: ashton eaton proved he's still the world's greatette athlete. >> will come across the line, the world's greatest athlete. >> reporter: defending his title in the decathlon and becoming the third man ever to win back-to-back golds in the event. >> helen louise maroulis will dance her way into history for the united states. >> reporter: helen maroulis became america's first woman to win gold in wrestling, a major upset over japan's three-time champ. >> taurasi lining up another lee. >> reporter: the women's basketball team beat france and now defend their streak against spain saturday. all right, we'll be back with more from rio in just a bit. it's my pleasure to hand it off to ginger right now. i'm told now it's going to be

fans so excited they're already gathering. look at that. she is a real friend of the program. glad to have her back. >> looking forward to hearing from her in our last half hour. a lot of eyes on olympian ryan lochte possibly facing charges for a false police report. one of america's most decorated olympians but also known for his actionsout side the pool and abc's linsey davis is here with a closer look. good morning. >> good morning, robin. he as fast as he swims it's the waves he makes outside that have people talking. lochtegate is on full blast online. while some are laughing it off others are using this moment to point out a cognitive dissidence that while many are making boys will be boys, at the same time gabby douglas can't seem to catch a break. it's becoming what's known as an international lochte mess. headlines calling out some of swimming's biggest stars for telling a tall tale. twitter erupted thursday after these comments by the ioc
defending ryan lochte and three of his teammates following their new infamous gas station confrontation. >> these kis were trying to have fun. >> reporter: people on the internet pounces. one said shoutout to all the 32-year-old kids out there. o'dell beckham jr. tweeted out double standards. others compared the claims to gymnast gabby douglas who last week was called out for her form during the national anthem. chris rock tweeted, gabby douglas not putting her hand on her heart equals travesty. 32-year-old drunk white man trashing property and lying equals just a kid. >> it's unusual to see an olympian with this kind of bad boy reputation. >> reporter: not the first time he's had a run-in with the law. court records show he was charged for public urination in florida in 2005. five years later he was charged with disorderly conduct after police say he was caught actively engaged in a physical fight. both cases were dismissed after reaching prosecution deals. lochte who's currently dating a
playboy playmate became a household name after making a huge splash at the london games in 2012 where he took home five medals, sported these controversial american flag grills and made this word popular. >> jeah. if you say it like how it's spelled its jeah. >> reporter: the celebrity status earned him front row seats at fashion show, races with prince harry in a vegas pool and a starring role in his own reality show on e! "what would ryan lochte do?" >> i remember what megan looked like. blond hair. great upper body. >> reporter: while he might be giving tv a second chance, when it comes to the water, some critics say he shouldn't be given another one. >> i think lochte is looking at a significant suspension and we may never see him again in the pool. >> reporter: multiple experts agree he will not be extradited for this but life post-olympics is not exactly going swimmingly
and people are retweeting had is old tweets saying he's about to turn that expletive upside down and that the country doesn't know who is about to roll through. interesting stuff. i think he's going to be unscathed. >> what would ryan lochte do? >> you're right. social media was on fire yesterday about this. >> people are really pointing out the difference between the treatment of some versus others especially with gabby douglas. >> when you say kids versus young adults. >> he's 32. >> not even so young. linsey, thanks so much. we turn to a frightening molt for one family, a toddler's foot getting caught in an escalator at a resort in hawaii while he was wearing a pair of crocs. the family suing and kendis has the latest. >> reporter: from airports to subways, escalator falls lead to more than 10,000 e.r. visits every year. this woman found out the hard way when they are 2-year-old became entangled in an escalator. >> his left foot was prech much sucked into the left side of the
escalator and by the time the escalator stopped, we could really only see, you know, his ankle and the rest was completely gone. >> reporter: the little boy was wearing crocs, the popular pliable shoe when his foot got stuck trapping the toddler for more than an hour. now flora and david king are suing crocs because they say the shoes are negligently and improperly designed and also suing hilton hawaiian village for failure to operate and maintain the hotel's escalator. crocs didn't respond to request for comment and the hotel saying they do not comment on pending litigation. issues with crocs and escalators have been going on for the past decade. chloe johnson was wearing them when she had an accident back in 2006. >> chloe said, oh, my toe, my toe. it was frightening. >> i wish that somebody had told me that this is something that could have happened because i think what really surprised david and i is that this is not the first incidents and so, you
know, one child is more than enough. >> reporter: for "good morning america," kendis, abc news, new york. >> all right, kendis, thanks so much. to robin at the big board. >> you'll join me on the big board because uber, huh-uh announcement, adding self-driving cars, what that means for passengers. then could the filter you use on your instagram photos indicate how happy you are or not? and the secret to finally getting good sleep. could a new therapy help? our insiders will discuss us. i remember it was a good sleep. it was before i worked here. yeah. a book. and while i was telling you about the book, i downloaded a song. oh, and full disclosure, when we were just chatting about that song thing, someone arranged a date. guilty. the point is, life is digital. so, carmax, created a site where you can reserve a car online. come in when it's convenient, your car will be waiting. just another thing to make buying a car better for you... reads this tweet that i just posted.

month. first time the technology has been offered to the general public. okay, becky worley, you're going to weigh in on this. so has the time arrived? this seems like we've been talking about this for awhile. it's going to happen? >> well, the technology for autonomous drive something ready, robin. i'm not sure the passengers are. uber partnering with volvo to roll out this pilot program in pittsburgh. you will a notice they chose volvo not tesla or bmw. what do we appreciate solve very with, safety. autopilot aspects, they'll phase them in during this test and others gradually. for one we need laws for autonomous vehicles and more importantly, people need to see incremental steps. they need to get slowly comfortable with this idea. so in this uber test, real people in the driver's seat to take over as needed. short jaunts with autonomous driving in a volvo known for safety, everybody, check. >> i thought i would get a discount with uberx, not go
driverless. you have firsthand experience with this. >> i got one of the first rides in google's driverless car back in 010. it was jerky, it was conceptually wild. flash forward to now. i got a ride in bmw's driverless car, it parks itself. i sat in the back with no one else. weird to see the steering wheel moving all by itself, yeah. but in this day and age, we adapt to innovation so fast, by the time i got back home, in my minivan i was ticked off, it couldn't drive itself. experts say, though, 10 to 60 years for full autonomy, with my life school pickups rushing to soccer practice, grocery store, driverless cars, i can't wait. >> only becky really rocks the minivan, i love it. i love it. we'll turn next to the next headline about social media and your health. fascinating new study try to determine if the filter you use on your instagram, hmm, indic e indicates how happy you are.
i thought i was just being artistic. dr. janet taylor will tell us probably something else. if we use a filter a lot what does that indicate? >> it's just not using the filter a lot. what this harvard study showed individuals prior to having a diagnosis may pick filters that were darker, grayer, bluer and you can pull up the filters for an example that may indicate their mood and so what they did was use visual social media, the pictures that they took, how many people are in the picture, what the words they said, that as a predictive factor that may, again, it's a screening tool diagnostic marker, i mean a screening tool, not diagnostic that may indicate someone's mood may be more depressed. on the left there is a filter that's happier and on the right darker. >> all right, you are a professional. is this going to lead to amateur instagram psychology here? >> well, it's not diagnostic but certainly as individuals we should pay attention to how we feel and if you find that maybe you are using a filter that's darker and it correlates with your mood you could talk to
someone. your health care provider, your parents or friends about how you feel. so it's not diagnostic but certainly may indicate how you feel. the goal is to feel happy but knowing that our emotions change every 20 seconds so they -- it fluctuates. if you have a sustained feeling of sadness, if you're not eating and sleeping, talk to someone. get some help. >> okay, that's something to think about. thank you so much. speaking of sleep, now to what could be the secret to finally getting better sleep. a "new york times" out with the headline this week about a therapy that harnesses the power of positive thinking to help those suffering from insomnia. okay, jen, so what's behind all of it. >> they're talking about something called cbt or cognitive behavioral therapy, mainstay in psychotherapy. think of it as goal oriented problem solving practical. this is like the antithesis of freudian psychoanalysis when you're on the couch and takes forever. this gets the job done and used
to study a lot of different therapies for different disorders. now the thinking should it be first line therapy for insomnia. the american college of physicians a few months ago said, yes, we should be recommending this first. now this article is all about could you do this online? now, studies -- the verdict is still out. some has shown it's no better or worse than in person cbt, the therapist, the experts dr. dr. taylor will say, look, this is not cookie cutter. you need one samuel honrubia one and make sure there's not something worse going on. >> everyone is nodding. >> what if you don't have access to that or medication, are there other things can you do on your own? >> i actually did a study, a sleep test a few years ago, you might remember. i found for me it was my environment. so i changed my bed. i got a bigger bed, darker blinds, that can be important. excluding medical causes and then, you know, you really have to take it to a good therapy. meds are not the long-term answer. >> i know because a lot of people feel that's the case.
>> short-term, okay. >> with the twins when is the last time you got a good night's sleep? >> whew, i think that was in the '90s. yeah, i love my bed. i love my bed. i love my bed. >> anything you do, dr. taylor to ensure a good night's rest? >> well, you know what i try to do, obviously want to avoid alcohol because that can stop you and then just try to relax yourself. i start from head to toe and think relaxing thoughts with every breath. >> sleep is my favorite word that starts with an "s." >> doing "gma" and "world news tonight" will help you too because you pass out as soon as you say good night. >> bless your heart. thanks to dr. ashton, dr. taylor, and becky. coming up, the best, the worst, the weirdest moments of the olympics from all that gold medal glory to the so-called phelps face. we'll talk about it. it can't be over. i love the olympics.

adrenaline and thrill. >> absolutely. our director studied nascar and formula 1 to find out where he could put the cameras to really make it exciting. there were cameras in the wheels of the chariots and in between the ears of the horses and it's all cut together in a way that just feels tangible. >> oh, gosh, it jumps off the big screen. you all have worked so well together. you've been married. you have children. the whole bit. is there anything that surprises you about yourselves when you're working together on projects like this? mark? >> we often say the real miracle is we're still speaking to each other. >> yeah. we do, we get on so well, you know, we love each other. we're best friends. >> what is your hope when people look up and see this on the big screen? what is your hope? >> you have to be very entertaining for a big summer blockbuster, and this movie is entertaining but woven in through this is this reconciliation and forgiveness
and maybe this movie adds some value to people who leave the theaters and think about reconciliation, forgiveness and love. >> and congratulations on your star placed right next to your hubby's star right there. >> i know. i hope it works out between us or we'll be in there with a drill. >> dedicated to your hometown. >> i did. i dedicated it to my hometown in derry in ireland and to anyone whoever had a dream and walked on hollywood boulevard because i was here to say, i was a girl with a dream once and i was here to say the dreams do come true. >> such a lovely, talented couple, thoroughly
>> got it. wait, what? >> okay, how many for the ak ammo. >> ten cents a sgloupdz you're on a terrorist watch list. >> do it for homeland security. >> you should probably talk to some of them. >> we will but we are very interested. >> incredible cast in this movie. you were just in l.a. for the premiere. we saw some hugging and some beard tugging going on there on the red carpet. >> what are you talking about? >> is this the new look. >> called a beard. sometimes it grows on your face. >> sometimes it's longer than others. >> you should try it, man. >> i do. this is my beard. no, they actually make me shave for this job. >> i like the wave you got
going. >> it's almost like yours, i'm working on that all morning long. >> grab my surfboard and get on that thing. >> you should and make sure you roll on that because they'll use it for "pop news" on monday. let me ask you about the story behind this. you were after this for some time. "rolling stone" article. you and the director both wanted to do this. >> "war dogs" is an unbelievable insane true story about these two schmucks from miami who basically, you know, they're in their mid-20s and they figure out through a loophole in the american government at that time how to become international arms dealers and make over $300 million selling guns to the u.s. government and it stars myself and miles teller and bradley cooper and it's directedly todd phillips and it's -- it's kind of like a gangster movie like a crime movie but it's really darkly funny also. >> it's funny because todd read this, the original article. he wanted the rights to it but you wanted the rights to it, too, did you not. >> yeah, i read the article and
i was like, wow, i would love to play this character but todd already bought the rights to the movie. >> you had worked with todd before. >> no, i never worked with todd before. >> you just wanted to convince him -- >> he tried to convince me. >> he had no idea you had a similar interest. >> no, he had written the part for me, i guess, apparently and he came to me and basically, you know, "wolf of wall street" was coming out around the same time he offered me the movie and both flips are about that really explore that american greed and the corruption of the american dream and he eventually we worked it so much that imand bradley called me and said just read it one more time and eventually the part was so good i was like i'm going to be too jealous if this comes out and someone else plays this part. >> so funny. watching you through the years and "knocked up" and everyone knows you're a funny guy but tackled really sort of dark roles too and what is it about this character that you thought this story needs to be told? >> this story is so
unbelievable. you wouldn't believe it's true if it didn't actually happen and the character, you know, it's a real story so i didn't get to meet the real person but by all accounts, you know, he was a sociopath and manipulative but by all accounts was really charming and charismatic and that was kind of the challenge of what i really wanted to do. >> it's friday. you came on a friday. flashback friday as we call it. apparently we have got a clip of you from, well, some time ago. let's take a look and get your reaction. >> yes, 2.60. >> megalevel. >> check it out. >> yeah. >> david russell taking you back to the humor -- >> my first job, i was 18. >> your first job. >> what are you now? >> 32. >> 32? >> what an arc and where do you go next? >> home. >> right. >> yeah. >> i'm glad you stopped at "gma" first. jonah hill, always great to have you on. congrats on the success. check out the movie. you can see "war dogs" in theaters right now and let's go back outside to ginger. >> i love that.
