friend and colleague. we both woke up with the you ins kind of pre-dawn, and it will take time to make sense of it. >> reporter: al roker weighed in. >> i'm still dealing with the news of a friend of 30 years, and we're all trying to process it. >> reporter: lauer has not issued his own comment yet, but lauer's accuser is alleging inappropriate sexual behavior throughout 2014. >> it's today with matt lauer. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to "today". >> this royal news has prompted tears of joy, but enough about our executive producer. >> reporter: he has been the mainstay of a show, and has had his personal life examined for years by the tabloids. his wife filed for divorce in 2006, accusing him of cruel and inhumane behavior, but withdrew a month later after reaching an agreement. lauer's firing comes just weeks
after another morning show host was fired for inappropriate sexual behavior, charlie rose. host of "the early show" on cbs was fired after 11 women came forward with allegations of being sexually harassed by the anchor. rose mcgowan, the woman who helped bring the harvey weinstein allegations to light is weighing in on matt lauer. she tweeted, don't let the door hit you on the way out. this is similar to having a death in the family. they say the employees there are stunned and that the announcement seemed to come out of nowhere, robin. >> all right, linsey. thank you very much. we'll have much more on this throughout the morning. that's right, but now to the big break in the tampa serial killer case. police arrested this 24-year-old at a local mcdonald's now charged with four murders. abc's victor oquendo is in tampa with more on how they caught him. good morning, victor. >> reporter: good morning, george. a co-worker at that mcdonald's alerted a police officer who happened to be inside at the time, telling him that donaldson
had a gun on him. this is a huge relief for the people in this neighborhood living in fear for nearly two months now under constant police patrols but now a suspect is in jail. >> i am pleased to announce that tonight we will be making an arrest in the seminole heights murders. >> reporter: it's the news residents in that tampa neighborhood have been waiting for. police arresting a suspect in the case, 24-year-old howell donaldson iii, facing four counts of first-degree murder. our affiliate capturing the moment he was taken into custody outside a local mcdonald's where he works. >> thank you for having the courage to step forward and doing the right thing. >> reporter: police receiving a tip about a man with a gun from one of his co-workers. >> first of all he told my boss to hold the gun. he told him to hold his bookbag for him, but he said don't go in the bookbag. whatever you do, don't go in the bookbag. and so she went in the bookbag and said she found a gun and after finding the gun she called the police. >> reporter: peabo johnson said donaldson has worked at the mcdonald's for two to three
months, and when police responded, they tackled him to the ground. >> it's kind of crazy that he was here with us the whole time. >> reporter: the arrest comes 51 days after the first murder when benjamin mitchell was gunned down on october 9th. since then, monica hoffa, anthony naiboa, and ronald felton were all killed as they walked alone at night or early morning. the surveillance videos of the suspect, the only clue. >> justice will be served then the process will occur when this individual rots in hell. goodness has won. >> reporter: for nearly two months, the neighborhood has been on edge. police saturating the area now hoping they can breathe a sigh of relief. >> the men and women of tampa bay and all over florida have taken care of this and handled this appropriately. >> reporter: all along police thought that the killer may have lived in the seminole heights neighborhood, but according to the police report, donaldson says he has no affiliation with the area. there are still so many questions here and no word on a motive. george? >> okay, victor, thanks very much. now to the new threat from
north korea, testing a powerful missile they say the capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and can reach the u.s. mainland. an emergency meeting has been called, and president trump saying, quote, we will take care of it. martha raddatz has the latest and she is there in washington. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning. north korea had not launched a missile in two months. the longest pause since donald trump had become president, but kim jong-un has come back with a roar. overnight, north korean tv gleefully announcing the test of a new type of missile which kim jong-un says completes its nuclear force. the intercontinental ballistic missile stayed airborne nearly 2,800 miles. higher and longer than any missile ever tested by the north koreans before crashing down in the sea of japan. this test launch was aimed
vertically, but if the north koreans tilt the angle horizontally, the icbm could potentially reach all the way across the continental u.s. president trump briefed while the missile was still in the air. >> i will only tell you that we will take care of it. it is a situation that we will handle. >> reporter: until that happens, preparations are being made in hawaii. [ sirens ] >> reporter: an attack warning system not used since the cold war will now be tested once a month. an unsettling sound, to say the least. this provocative launch comes after stronger sanctions, shows of military force and the designation as a state sponsor of terrorism. and while president trump says he will take care of it, it is unclear how he will do that in the face of growing defiance, robin, from kim jong-un. >> that's right. and it is also something that we heard that there were passengers on commercial flights who said, martha, they actually saw flashes of light. >> reporter: exactly, there are reports that during that missile
launch several commercial airliners saw a flash. of course, north korea gives no warning of its tests so commercial airliners would not know until they saw it. >> that's true. okay, martha. thank you. we're going to move on now to president trump on capitol hill. he is trying to prevent a government shutdown. the deadline for a deal is just nine days away, and you see them posing with empty chairs. nancy pelosi refused to attend a white house meeting, and they need the votes to keep the government open. trump will campaign in missouri, and i want to bring in our white house correspondent, cecilia vega, for more. he seems confident that the tax plan will pass, and let's look at mitch mcconnell. he says it will be more complicated. >> you think i'm sitting there with a rubik's cube trying to get to 50. and we do have a few members who have concerns and we're trying
to address them. and we know we will not be able to go forward until we get 50 people satisfied. that's what we're working on. >> i don't know if you ever tried to do a rubik's cube, george. i have never pulled one off. that's not a clear vote of confidence for the majority leader. they have a long way to go. the vote yesterday was a boost. there are at least six senators who are on the record who have voiced concerns. the republicans can only afford to lose two votes and they have a lot of wild cards here. the white house thinks they can get this done by christmas, but it's a sign of perhaps how much work they know they need to do. the president hits the road today. he is going to missouri to sell this. they have a listening way to go. >> but they have momentum, and not so much on avoiding a shutdown. democrats wider than ever. >> the government runs owe of money, and then you have the stunt yesterday with the president sitting between two
empty chairs. schumer and pelosi didn't show up because he taunted them. he needs their votes. they don't have the votes and the president was asked yesterday if he believed they could avoid a government shutdown. would he blame the democrats? he said, absolutely, i would blame the democrats and he says he is working to avoid this. >> there are more reports out of white house that the president is questioning whether it's his voice on that "access hollywood" tape, and bringing up the issue of whether or not president obama was born in the united states. >> there is no proof this is not the president's voice on this tape. he apologized for it. outright apologized for it, and now "the new york times" is reporting that behind closed doors, the president is talking about conspiracy theories. he was the lead person out front on the birther movement, claiming that president obama was not born in the united states. he eventually came around to it after many, many questions. years of questioning by
reporters. he said that the president was born in the states, but apparently, he is talking about this behind closed doors now. >> confounding, and he is creating his own reality. cecilia vega, thanks very much. michael? thank you, george. also this morning, a possible clue in the search for that missing toddler in north carolina. the fbi is releasing these new surveillance images saying they could be 3-year-old mariah woods who disappeared sunday night. abc's steve osunsami has the latest. >> reporter: take a look. these are the security camera images this morning that the fbi and local authorities are sharing concerned that the girl in the photo might just might be 3-year-old mariah woods. police are asking for help from anyone who can identify the woman carrying this child. they were spotted at a walmart in morehead city, north carolina, at 9:30 a.m. monday morning. three hours after the girl disappeared. >> priority number one is to find mariah. >> our focus right now is to find her, to bring her back and then to find out what happened. >> reporter: with helicopters in
the air and volunteers on foot, investigators are looking for any trace of the young girl last seen sunday night. the fbi is sharing this missing poster asking anyone who has been in contact with the family since sunday to come forward. >> i believe the police want to make sure that their story fits as they're putting the puzzle together and connecting the dots. >> reporter: the girl's mother said she said goodnight to her daughter around 11:00 p.m. sunday in their mobile home. >> whatever you want, just bring her home, please. safe and sound. she's my baby. she's my everything. >> reporter: an hour later her mother's boyfriend says the girl woke up. and he told the 3-year-old to go back to bed. the girl's grandmother discovered she was missing the next morning. >> if somebody abducted this 3-year-old, maybe they knew how to get in. maybe they had a key to the trailer. that's the unanswered questions that need to be answered. >> reporter: the girl's biological father who doesn't live in the home, says he doesn't believe his daughter was abducted. >> somebody just walked right up in there and grabbed a
3-year-old out of the bed and she didn't cry, she didn't scream. nobody heard nothing? four people in the house. two adults and two kids and somebody just comes up and snatches the baby up and walks out? >> reporter: police point out that this missing girl needs orthopedic shoes to walk normally, and those shoes were left in the home directly behind me. that walmart is about an hour away from here and authorities underline that that missing girl might, just might be her. robin? >> all right, steve, thank you. new details also in the royal engagement. we're learning when and where prince harry and meghan markle will say i do. abc's adrienne bankert is at windsor castle, the site of the next royal wedding. good morning, adrienne. >> reporter: good morning to you too, robin. yes. londoners are thrilled at the news of this royal wedding to be held here at the queen's country residence at st. george's chapel. meanwhile, we're learning a little bit more about the bride-to-be. a never-before-seen image this
morning of a teenage meghan markle standing in front of buckingham palace. the childhood friend pictured with markle tells "the daily mail," who obtained the photo, it was taken in 1996, the year before princess diana died. this comes on the heels of their first interview when they told the bbc they enjoyed learning about each other's past. >> because i'm from the states you don't grow up with the same understanding of the royal family. and so, while i now understand very clearly there's a global interest there. >> reporter: overnight new details about the couple's future. prince harry and meghan markle selecting st. george's chapel for their upcoming ceremony set to take place in may. the royal family will be covering most of the cost. ♪ "gma" got an inside look at the 600-year-old chapel in 2005. situated at the queen's home at windsor castle. the venue more intimate than

and neutralizes stomach acid at the source.t♪ smoothies! only from tums welcome back to "gma." we are following that breaking news just came in moments ago, nbc's matt lauer has been fired from the "today" show. there are reports of inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace. that's according to nbc's chairman. >> his co-anchors, savannah guthrie, hoda kotb announcing the news on the air this morning. guthrie saying we are, quote, heartbroken and learned about it just before going on the air. >> linsey davis with more on this. all really developing quite quickly. >> you're exactly right, and good morning to you, george. we deal with breaking news inside this building every day but walking in the door this morning, this news had people truly stunned. a somber mood certainly on the "today" show set where not long ago they announced the firing of matt lauer. their lead anchor, a fixture on the show for nearly 25 years. >> good morning, breaking news
overnight, matt lauer has been terminated from nbc news. this is a sad morning here at "today" and nbc news. just moments ago, nbc news chairman andy lack sent the following note to our organization. dear colleagues, on monday night we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by matt lauer. it represented after serious review, a clear violation of our company's standards. as a result, we have decided to terminate his employment. while it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over 20 years he has been at nbc news, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident. for the moment all we can say is that we are heartbroken. i'm heartbroken for matt. he is my dear, dear friend and my partner. and he is beloved by many, many people here. and i'm heartbroken for the brave colleague who came forward to tell her story and any other women who have their own stories to tell. >> i've known matt for 15 years and i've loved him as a friend
and as a colleague and, again, just like you were saying, savannah, it's hard to reconcile what we are hearing with the man who we know who walks in this building every single day. we were both woken up with the news kind of predawn and we're trying to process it and trying to make sense of it and it'll take some time for that. >> there had been rumors for the past few weeks that both "the new york times" and "variety" were looking into allegations of lauer's alleged behavior. al roker is till trying to process this news of his friend of 30 years. >> just coming in. matt has been there so long. linsey, thanks so much. i want to get more on this now from jim rutenburg who broke the story for "the new york times" and our friend larry hackett of "people" magazine and let me begin with you. you put out the tweet early this morning just before the "today" show came on the air. what more can you tell us about how this went down? >> all i can say myself because this news broke at nbc, you know, this morning, the staff is
there had been rumors going around for some time, reporters starting chasing them and clearly it got the attention as it should and have will be questions in all of our -- throughout the industry and other industries how quickly should these allegations have been looked into in the first place, but the move by andy lack was swift and let there be no doubt this is a seismic moment in our culture and in the media. >> as you said and we reported we've known for some time that both "the new york times" and "variety" had been looking into questions and asking questions about it for the last several weeks, but according to nbc's chairman andy lack, the complaint only came in on monday night? >> this must -- all i can conclude from his memo this complaint was so specific and so troubling to them, that they have to make a move, and the key line in the memo that he sent to his staff this morning was quote/unquote we were also
presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident. we can only assume that was -- there was more than one reason and there was a lot of they were presented with against one of their top, top people. >> jim, at this point is "the new york times" prepared to report anything additional on matt lauer based on the questions you all have been asking? >> reporting effort is under way and it will obviously now move even a little bit faster than it already has been. >> larry hackett, let me bring you in. seismic shock to morning television. >> it is an incredible shock to morning television just in the full gist closure matt had been on the "today" show is a huge thing. there have been stories over the years about matt's private life and want to separate that from whatever these allegations may be in the tabloids for years so that has been discussed and i discussed those with and wrote about it in people and want to point out that nbc news has been under tremendous pressure recently as a result of the
ronan farrow stories regarding harvey weinstein and discussions that nbc passed on the information that farrow had that he brought to them and then went to "the new yorker." i have to imagine -- i don't know how much, but i have to imagine that that history was also some sort of pressure on him, and on nbc. >> larry, charlie rose, cbs, now matt lauer at nbc, the landscape of morning television talk about a seismic change. >> yeah, it's incredible and, you know, one hopes that this is not obviously a representation of how men behave on morning television but an indication and these shows are cultural both mirrors and leaders and they reflect how we behave and i think that is starting to catch up with what's going on in the culture and that nobody is immune and i think we do have a case like this with charlie and matt, huge thing, just the drama of how this happened on television this morning where it's the opening story and
clearly hoda and savannah were absolutely shocked by this is indication of both what the roles of these programs play in our lives, a, and, b, the shock and potency of these and what had to happen. >> we're learning now no one is immune. "the new york times" has been leading the way on this reporting. it is hitting every part of our culture. media, entertainment. politics, journalism. >> i think that other industries will see it as well. i mean i think what i'm a little surprised about but i think we'll see more of is what are we going to hear out of wall street? we're already hearing a lot out of attacks happening even before some of this but what makes it all happen faster is when such a big star, someone of matt lauer's stature, someone of charlie rose's stature, let's not forget bill o'reilly, biggest host on cable news on fox news hastens everything
because these are celebrities and it does have a different way of breaking through and changing things. >> and, jim, as i said you have been leading the way. what do you think sparked this just firestorm all through the culture, more and more people coming forward? >> i think it's -- i think the most important thing that has happened is really came through the harvey weinstein case where, again, the accusers were celebrities. people who americans wake up, see on magazine covers, see on tv and see in movies they were making these accusations but i also think there's a generational shift. there's a shift in the reporting ranks. our stories have been broken by young women, reporters who say this is absolutely unacceptable. we have to nail these stories. but there's so much in play this coming together once in a gigantic way. >> huge, huge story. jim rutenberg and larry hackett, thanks very much. we'll be right back. >> can i just -- i want to -- i was really struck, guys, by today having savannah and hoda
having to be there to report the story. and then it was with charlie rose, it was gayle king and norah o'donnell and you can tell they're grappling with this. because of how it's somebody they have worked with, but how they all have spoken about the bravery of their colleagues, those women. >> it's not easy to come forward. >> we're talking charlie rose, and matt lauer and i know, you know, people were also saying and talking about them. yes, they were huge in their industry and we see it and people keep going back to the president, president trump just tweeting about it, as well and people are saying, people losing their jobs and yet in other positions in politics and not just with president trump but other politicians who are accused of these types of actions they still have their jobs and people are trying to kind of reconcile and try and understand that. >> this is not over yet. we have a long, long way to go. we'll be right back. to go.

when i call his phone, it goes to -- i can't get ahold of him. >> he is a family friend. we've known him for several years through the soccer and school and everything. >> reporter: authorities say there was no sign frisina would leave with rodriguez. >> caitlyn has a current boyfriend who also is just beside himself because they were -- everything was fine. there were no indicators that there was an issue and now she's just taken off. >> reporter: they now believe the two may be heading north. >> we just want them to contact their families and come home. >> reporter: the story is reminiscent of one that gripped the nation last spring when 15-year-old high school student elizabeth thomas disappeared with her 50-year-old teacher tad cummins. the pair was captured on surveillance cameras as they made their way from tennessee to a remote cabin in california. her family never lost hope. >> please come home to us. >> reporter: after 39 days authorities rescued thomas and took cummins into federal custody.
he has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial. in florida, caitlyn's parents are holding out hope that their ordeal will come to an end much sooner. >> we miss you, pumpkin and we love you. and we want to hear from you. >> reporter: the columbia county school district released this statement with regard to rodriguez saying, the employee has been suspended and will be restricted from any contact with students. police say they believe the two may be traveling in a red mercury sable with florida plates so they're asking people to be on the lookout for them, saying they may be heading to new york or canada. >> seems like they prepared and planned this for awhile. >> seems that way. >> we'll be right back. what's your name? fat amy. you call yourself "fat amy"? she has no underwear on. oh my god! she's turning. no.

morning, including that exclusive look at the trailer for "avengers: infinity war," showed a little bit of it. a lot more coming up. >> and take a look. these are fans' faces as they watch marvel's trailer for the first time. it looked like us at the desk when we watched. this is coming up. and the excitement for this one is hitting an all-time high. you're about to see it for yourself just moments from now, and of course, it's right here only on "gma." first though, we want the get to that breaking news about nbc's matt lauer fired from the "today" show over reports of inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace. linsey is back with that story. good morning, again, linsey. >> good morning again to you, robin. nbc news president andy lack put out a statement saying they decided to terminate lauer and while it is the first complaint about his behavior in over 20 years he's been at nbc news, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident. president trump is now tweeting about it, as well, writing -- wow. matt lauer was just fired from nbc for inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace. there was a somber mood on the "today" show set this morning where they announced the firing of lauer, their lead anchor.
a fixture on the show, for nearly 25 years. >> he is my dear, dear friend and my partner, and he is beloved by many people here. i'm heartbroken for the brave colleague who came forward to tell her story and any other women who have their own stories to tell. >> i've known for matt for 15 years. and i've loved him as a friend and as a colleague and, again, just like you were saying, savannah, it's hard to reconcile what we are hearing with the man who we know who walks in this building every single day. we were both woken up with the news kind of predawn. and we're trying to process it and trying to make sense of it. and it'll take some time for that. >> matt lauer has not yet released a statement. in the meantime, "the new york times" says they will continue their investigation into matt lauer. >> we talked to jim rutenberg earlier from "the new york times." he said the reporting is coming. linsey, thanks very much. we move onto the new threat from north korea. they have tested a powerful new missile and experts say could reach the entire u.s. mainland.
and president trump responded yesterday saying we will take care of it. our senior white house correspondent, cecilia vega, here with more on that. >> good morning, guys. good to see you again this morning. the missile stayed in the air longer than any other north korean missile ever. it was aimed vertically, shooting 2,800 miles into space before it came crashing down into the sea of japan. but if the north koreans change the angle horizontally the icbm could potentially reach deep into the u.s., even as far as washington, d.c., or here in new york city. now shortly after this launch, president trump addressed reporters. take a listen to what he had to say. >> a missile was launched a little while ago from north korea. i will only tell you that we will take care of it. it is a situation that we will handle. >> reporter: so a more measured response there from the president this time compared to the fire and fury comments we've heard from him in the past. but it's really unclear how he plans to, quote, take care of this. the president did reach out to the leaders of japan and south korea. senator lindsey graham had a very blunt warning. he said, if we have to go to war to stop this, we will.
>> but the president pretty measured in his statement. >> definitely a different tone from him this time. >> cecilia, thanks very much. now we have troubling news for pet owners this morning. the fda has released a warning about popular dog treats made from real bones that have been treated and processed. the report says about 15 dogs died after chewing on the bones. and the fda cited ham bones, pork femur bones, rib bones and smoky knuckle bones as some of those that cause the illness. and the symptoms include choking. for all of us who love our pets, this is definitely something to pay attention to. >> sure is. coming up, prince harry's special connection to the chapel where he and meghan markle will marry. and how to get great holiday gifts on a budget, of course.

[ applause ] we have new details on the royal wedding. >> do we now? >> let's get more on prince harry and meghan markle, of course, announced their plans to marry in may at st. george's chapel. it is a place of both historical
importance and personal significance and back to adrienne bankert at windsor castle where the chapel is. good morning, adrienne. >> reporter: good morning to you too, george, as well. you know, royal experts are saying this venue is perfect for prince harry and meghan markle, reflecting, of course, that royal touch as well as their own personal style. the wedding certainly to be one for the history books. the royal couple just has a mere six months to plan their perfect wedding. the prince and his american princess will be saying their i dos here. st. george's chapel. the small gothic church tucked away on the queen's favorite estate, windsor castle. as news broke the nuptials will be planned by the bride and groom with the royal family footing the bill. >> it's going to be a big royal wedding. it has to follow many of the royal traditions. but they want to make sure they put their own personal stamp on it. people from all around the world will want to see them say their vows so we are expecting there to be a lot of cameras inside the chapel. >> reporter: the 14th century
chapel often used on more somber occasions like funerals, seats 800. while beautiful and revered it's a far smaller venue than westminster abbey where prince william and kate wed six years ago among more than 2,000 guests. st. george's chapel just past these castle walls is a major tourist destination attracting more than a million visitors every single year. it's hosted a number of prominent royal weddings including the first in 1863 for king edward vii. >> the choir of st. george's chapel has performed for monarchs since the 1300s. >> reporter: our charlie gibson going inside the chapel back in 2005. ♪ it's where harry's father charles, the prince of wales celebrated his marriage to camilla parker bowles. now duchess of cornwall. famously both previously divorced first marrying in a civil ceremony with a blessing officiated by the archbishop of canterbury in 2005.
and prince harry has his own special connection christened at the chapel. >> harry was baptized at st. george's in december 1984, a couple of months after he was born. so it's a place that really, he has started out his life. and now it's a place where he and meghan are starting out their life together. >> reporter: later this week the future princess will be making her first official royal in waiting appearance just as the women before her. princess diana and kate, duchess of cambridge seen out in public with their princes ahead of their big day. and meghan, of course, having to go through a rites of passage. similar to kate, she'll be both baptized and confirmed into the church of england ahead of that ceremony. i know there are a lot of people including a lot of american would-be princesses cheering her on. back to you guys. >> are you going with the new look, just the one glove? a little michael jackson look. >> reporter: do you notice that? do you notice that? >> what's up with that? >> i have to have one to use for
the cell phone to get all the latest updates on the markle sparkle, robin. and this one is to keep me warm. >> there you have it. >> glad we cleared that up. >> curious. >> let's bring in rhiannon mills for more on this. st. george seems like an awful special place. what can we learn from past weddings there? >> yeah, it's a hugely significant place for royal weddings. it's hosted so many in the past but also what's interesting is to hear that harry and meghan see it as a special place already that they've spent a lot of time in windsor in those months that they've been dating. and they said a big thank you to the queen, as well, because she's had to give permission for them to get married at st. george's chapel. but the good news for us is they are being very hands-on with the planning, that they want this to be a day of fun and joy. but also they want the public to be involved as well so hopefully we'll get a good glimpse of the couple as they head in to take their vows. >> good public appearance on friday. the royal in waiting, the first
time we'll see her. what do you think we can expect? >> i think it is unbelievable that just well five days after they announced their engagement we'll see them stepping out together. you think they have enough on their plate planning that wedding. but they're obviously very clearly looking at their royal role going forward. we're going to see them going to a charity that's very close to prince harry's heart. the full effect charity which helps disadvantaged young people. also they're going to be marking world aids day, of course, a cause close to princess diana's heart, as well. and it's going to be that big day for a rite of passage for meghan, that first ever royal walkabout. she'll have to pitch that right so she doesn't overshadow her husband too much, her future husband. sorry. getting ahead of myself. >> i want to ask you, meghan says she intends to become a british citizen. what does that mean for her american citizenship? >> yeah, i was joking with the palace official yesterday that they are really spoiling us with all this detail they're giving
us, but it was interesting to hear meghan intends to become a british citizen. she will, of course, have dual nationality and has to go through the same process that anyone applying for that citizenship has to go through. but also we found out yesterday that she wants to get to know the uk as well as possible. so they're going to be doing lots of visits here in the uk. so i'm afraid we're going to see plenty of the couple over here. i don't think they'll be coming back to the states any time soon. >> darn it. we'll get them though hopefully. >> eventually. >> eventually. >> thank you, rhiannon. let's go over to ginger. [ applause ] >> i already put on the glove. this is so cool. i love that. that's a look, right? she's talking about fashion. i might as well just jump on board. it's warm in here, too. you know what we have to do your "gma" moment. this is that moment you realize all the thanksgiving leftovers are gone. yeah. you're taking that last one in. 6-month-old kylie from boston couldn't get enough. she's probably teething a little bit but whatever.

concentra concentrate? >> it's pretty hard to concentrate on any set that's got anthony mackey on it. it's pretty surreal. you look around you and see michelle pfeiffer and william hurt. and sam and gwyneth paltrow. all these different people. and it's just an accumulation of ten years of work that basically marvel has put together for us. >> it's awesome. you said it was one day that they actually wrangled -- >> a few days -- one day that i really remember last actually a few months ago, yeah, it was everybody there and it was pretty surreal so when you see things like that in the movie people actually were there, it wasn't just pieced together. >> not cgi. the real deal. >> almost makes you go crazy. so exciting to be on set that day. >> yeah. >> and something else we want to talk to you about.

[ laughter ] >> so i hear that in my head every night. >> now to talk about "i, tonya," i remember being at espn at the time and covering the incident, the tonya harding/nancy kerrigan you were just a baby back then. how much did you know of the story before becoming a part of it? >> i didn't -- i remember flashes of that happening at the time when i was -- i was probably around 10 or 11 but i recently had seen the price of
gold, "30 for 30." and that was around the same time that the script was sent to me. and i just kind of got all lost in trying to figure out who was telling the truth. what was really behind it? i mean there's some weird mythical mystique to it we'll never really know but, yeah, it's odd. >> the mockumentary -- how do you say it. >> mockumentary. >> the way you did it. i felt like i knew the story but i was even, after seeing it, wondering a little bit more. here's a clip of it right now. >> going to need to come up with more money. >> do i have stupid written across my head? all they have to do is mail letters some place. i'm not giving them more money. >> these are two of my top operatives. derek needs expense money. shane -- >> call derek and tell him we're calling the whole thing off. sweetie, the death threat is off.
>> quite a 'stache you got there. >> the mustache was its own character. >> it was, obviously i still haven't lost the turtlenecks but -- yeah, it was a -- >> you got a chance to meet jeff gillooly. what was it like? >> i went to portland before filming and it was wild, look, i had had spent two months researching the guy and looking him up and listening to his voice in my headphones and there he is sitting across from me so it was a little like in "the twilight zone" and he was wary. the first thing he said why would anybody ever want to make a movie out of this? you know. and i just looked at him and the only answer i could get, look. it was just a phenomenal script. it just happens to be your life. >> he wasn't really psyched about it at first. >> no, i don't think he -- we didn't raise our glasses and have a cheers to it or anything. i think he was more just kind of feeling like the thing happened in the past and it's, you know, being revisited and so on. >> he did agree to meet with you and sit down. did he help? >> well, he helped me because i play him in the movie from, you know, age 20 to 50 to now. he's 50 years old now and i couldn't find footage of him when he was younger and now.
so he helped me in the sense that i could really look at him and kind of ask him questions about his childhood and how he grew up and just little things i could piece together. actually even seeing him smile was a big thing for me. i couldn't find any footage of him smiling. >> you really stud did him. >> i did. i was definitely watching him pretty closely. >> and tell us about margot robbie who plays tonya. she -- wow. [ applause ] >> look, i mean all you got to do is just go online, go to youtube, watch some of the real footage of tonya harding doing the lillehammer or any of those things. and then watch margot in the movie. and the parallels are just -- it's uncanny how much she caught the ferocious spirit and just overall kind of spontaneous explosive nature that she had. >> can you skate? >> absolutely not. [ laughter ] no, i'm not one to skate. >> but i hear, you know, you're great in this movie.
and i hear there's one actor who you really admire. this person makes movies fun for you. >> oh, yeah, well jack nicholson, yeah, jack nicholson is just somebody i always -- probably the guy who would intimidate me the most. i never met him and hope it happens one day. i just love that no matter what, he's always been true to who he was. he never really tried to be anything but his own self. >> that was enough. >> yeah, that was enough. >> it's great having you here. >> thank you, guys. thank you so much. [ applause ] >> if you're watching, meet up with sebastian stan and "i, tonya," hits theaters december 8th. can't thank you enough. really appreciate it. coming up next from "star wars: "the last jedi," john boyega is here. we'll be right back.
