7:04 am
so destructive. and now we're going to go to the search for a gunman near seattle opening fire on the highway near sea-tac airport. bullets hitting at least four cars. the incident even temporarily shutting down one of the airport's runways. abc's will carr is in seattle and has the very latest this morning. good morning, will. >> reporter: good morning, michael. imagine driving down the highway when a burst of bullets comes from across the road, amazingly, nobody was hurt but the suspect is still on the run. overnight, a massive manhunt for a gunman targeting random drivers in seattle. heavily armed s.w.a.t. teams and canine units swarming the scene near seattle's busy airport shortly before rush hour after reports of at least four cars hit by bullets. >> there's the bullet hole. >> reporter: this man about to get off the highway when he heard a gunshot. >> it exits into the seats. >> reporter: this woman terrified when a bullet blasted right through her passenger side door. >> i heard a boom and glass all
7:05 am
over my face and i looked and i saw that it went through the passenger side and i realized that it was a bullet. >> reporter: relief this morning there were no fatalities. >> we're all still standing. >> i feel like i was more lucky because of where the bullet hole entered and exited. some of the other people had higher up shots. >> reporter: at this point the shootings appear random and with the gunman still out there authorities are asking for everybody in this area to remain cautious, michael. >> thank you so much, will. robin. okay, michael. now to breaking news overseas, a possible terror attack thwarted in germany. prosecutors say they discovered a plot to launch an attack with ricin. our chief foreign correspondent terry moran has the latest. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, robin. authorities foiled this apparent terror attack in cologne charging a 29-year-old tunisian man with producing a biological weapon after police found highly toxic ricin in his apartment. during a raid on his home late on tuesday, security services first became suspicious of this man after he ordered ricin seeds
7:06 am
and a coffee grinder from an online store. police say he did produce ricin in june. he first came to germany in 2016. local papers are reporting he had sympathy for isis and germany has been hit by terror attacks over the years. the worst one, that van attack in berlin, christmas 2016, but this one in cologne today. police successfully thwarting. robin? >> thankful for that. amy. robin, now to new developments after that historic summit between president trump and kim jong-un. there are still so many questions about that agreement they signed. secretary of state mike pompeo meeting with the south korean and japanese foreign ministers to hammer out details saying at a press conference, quote, we're going to get denuclearization, and only then will there be relief from sanctions. this as president trump defends kim jong-un's history of human rights abuses. >> so have a lot of other people done some really bad things. i can go through a lot of nations where a lot of bad
7:07 am
things were done. >> just five months ago he called north korea the most brutally repressive regime on earth. we turn now to that headline about michael cohen. abc news has learned president trump's longtime personal attorney is likely to cooperate with federal investigators. our chief justice correspondent pierre thomas has more on that from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: amy, good morning. michael cohen's relationship with the president is being put to the test. there are indications this morning that he's considering cooperating with federal investigators. >> have you talked to mr. trump about a pardon? >> reporter: he's under incredible pressure. in april, fbi agents raided michael cohen's apartment, office and hotel room, seizing documents and more than a dozen phones and electronic devices. and now sources telling abc news cohen is likely to cooperate with authorities. and this morning, word he's parting ways with his own attorneys. among the reasons, a source says concern over payment of legal fees. president trump livid over cohen becoming a target. >> i just heard that they broke into the office of one of my
7:08 am
personal attorneys, a good man, and it's a disgraceful situation. >> reporter: the u.s. attorney for the southern district of new york is investigating cohen's personal business dealings including his role in facilitating a hush payment to stormy daniels who claims she had an affair with president trump. >> why did michael cohen make it if there was no truth to her allegations? >> you have to ask michael cohen. michael's my attorney and you'll have to ask michael. >> reporter: the u.s. attorney's office digs into cohen's close relationship with president trump -- >> i will do anything to protect mr. trump. >> reporter: special counsel robert mueller has questions too. sources tell abc news he wants to know what the president knew about cohen's efforts relating to russian real estate investments. cohen has not been charged with any crime. d ulfahen is clearly a target cafar, and he faces a prospect of investigators being able to go through millions of his business records, e-mails and other documents, amy.
7:09 am
>> all right, and pierre, we're also expecting that much anticipated inspector general report of the justice department looking at how top officials handled the controversial hillary clinton e-mail investigation during the 2016 election. >> reporter: amy, that's right. we're expecting that report to be released this afternoon. it will lay out the mistakes and miscues of the justice department during the final stages of the 2016 campaign and sources tell us it specifically criticizes former fbi director james comey for his handling of the clinton e-mail investigation as well as former attorney general loretta lynch. amy. >> pierre thomas, we appreciate it. thank you. let's bring in abc news senior legal correspondent and analyst sunny hostin, chris christie, an abc news contributor and a former federal prosecutor. governor christie i'm going to begin with. christie, a former federal if you are president trump right now, how concerned are you about michael cohen cooperating with investigators? >> i think this is one step at a time, right? i think what's much more likely
7:10 am
to have happened than why he may be changing lawyers he can't pay them anymore. lawyers usually take off when the check doesn't come in. and i think given 3 million documents being reviewed from a firm like mcdermott, will & emery that has very high rates, that's my guess. if i were the president i would take a deep breath, not worry about that and let this kind of progress. >> let me ask you this, we know it's a separate case, of course, but can any of the info or evidence that's uncovered in this investigation be used by mueller in his investigation? >> sure. you know, that's the possession of the federal government, the fbi and federal prosecutors in the justice department and so it's not like there is any wall between the two. but remember, the cohen investigation has been handed off to the southern district of new york here in manhattan. the mueller investigation is separate. for this to get back to mueller, they're going to have to go through the deputy attorney general, through rod rosenstein, to get permission to have it go back to mueller so there are a lot of steps to happen here and i think we might be getting ahead of ourselves on this, remember one last thing, amy, to cooperate you need something to cooperate with. you need to have some
7:11 am
information on somebody they're interested that's corroboratable and i don't know that michael cohen does. >> let me bring you in, sunny. why do you think michael cohen is preparing to cooperate with investigators now? >> look, i think that the threat of criminal prosecution can be very, very persuasive, i know i used that when i was a federal prosecutor. chris, i'm sure you used it as well. it's been persuasive in flipping michael flynn and rick gates and george papadopoulos. i really think cohen thought he would be protected by the attorney/client privilege and so, when you have over 3 million documents that were seized during this fbi raid of his home, of his hotel room, you know, 300,000 of them have now been determined to be discoverable, to be able to be used. i think when you are looking at that kind of paper trail, you have every incentive to cooperate. >> governor christie, i know you speak with the white house and with president trump often. what's the level of anxiety about this right now there? >> i think it's a lot less than
7:12 am
it was even when the raid occurred a while ago. i think that they're much more focused on a lot of other things, north korea and the other things that are going on with the president right now so i don't detect a high level of anxiety, and the thing you have to remember, michael cohen's charge as a lawyer in the trump organization as i understood it was fairly limited. wasn't like he was involved deeply in the campaign and so there's a separation there. he was a business -- >> he was his personal attorney, though. >> he was known as his fixer, chris. that doesn't make a lot of sense. he had three clients, one of which was donald trump. >> i know you've read that in the newspaper but i actually experienced it and what i'm telling you is from my experience his role was rather limited to the business side of donald trump's operation and not to the political side. >> didn't he have business in russia as well. >> i don't know.alt ou what i know is the media gets really breathless at times, everybody, every time there is the smallest development whether or not there are facts that back that up. my only point is this, nobody likes the idea that their lawyer
7:13 am
would be cooperating with the federal government if that's where this goes. no one would be happy about that.t on the other hand, we do even know what he's got to say yet. and probably neither do the prosecutors. so, you know, we should relax about it and remember michael cohen's role was a narrow one on the business side. this was not -- don mcgahn was the lawyer who ran what was going on in the campaign, not michael cohen. >> i completely disagree, of course. the bottom line is, if you have three clients one of which is donald trump and you are being investigated for possible bank fraud or wire fraud, or this hush payment that was possibly made or definitely made to stormy daniels, i think the two are inextricably tied so an investigation into michael cohen certainly could be an investigation into -- >> and it could be an investigation into anything else including his efforts with his own real estate investments and and it's much more likely he's getting investigated himself than any information that involves the president.
7:14 am
>> and i don't know -- if that's true, i don't know why he thought the attorney/client privilege would protect him. the bottom line is he is in the business of being an attorney for three clients. >> we are certainly going to see what he's willing to see what he's going to share with investigators soon enough. thank you. michael? amy, thank you. turning now to the immigration battle on capitol hill. the house preparing to vote or two major bills as debate rages over the administration's policy of separating families who cross the border illegally. our chief national affairs correspondent tom llamas, he is near the border in brownsville, texas, at the country's largest licensed shelter housing undocumented immigrant children. good morning, tom. >> reporter: michael, good morning. that shelter is just behind me. if it looks like a walmart, that's because that is what it used to be. it now houses boys from the ages of 10 to 17 years old. they spend 22 hours a day inside of that facility and for the first time we were part of a small group of journalists allowed inside. what we saw, this place is nearing capacity, and space is
7:15 am
running out fast. >> what do you want? >> justice. >> when? >> now. >> reporter: several house democrats joined protesters outside the customs and border patrol headquarters demanding an end to the trump administration's zero tolerance policy which has led to families being separated at the border. >> that's not right. that's not fair. we have to say something. we have to do something. >> reporter: even one of the president's biggest supporters breaking with him, evangelist franklin graham. >> i think it's disgraceful, it's terrible to see families ripped apart and i don't support that one bit. >> reporter: and overnight, abc news learning a change could be coming. house republicans set to put two immigration bills to a vote. dealing with border security, the wall and a possible path for dreamers. but also, a provision prohibiting the separation of children and parents at the border. anany peavbe fromhe? well, they are
7:16 am
ke they arn care of by f amera are allowetoo. you can see it says keep out, private property. this facility is so big it used to be a walmart supercenter. this is what it looks like inside. this footage shot by the department of health and human services during a tour we took of the facility. this mega-shelter is nearly at capacity. close to 1,500 boys, 10 to 17 years old. since may nearly 700 children have been separated from their parents. at this facility in brownsville, children are allowed two calls a week and are allowed outside only two hours a day. now from what we could see, the shelter is well-staffed. the children are taken care of, and there are lots of activities to keep them occupied during the day, but one can only imagine what it's like at night when they have to go to sleep at night in this strange facility away from their parents. the average length of stay now at facilities just like this
7:17 am
across the country is 52 days. >> 52 days away from their families and sometimes longer. all right, tom, thank you very much. now this morning we're going to celebrate the life of the legendary figure in women's basketball. anne donovan, who suddenly passed away from heart failure at the age of 56. she was a hall of famer. she won everywhere she went. she was a college champion at old dominion. a two-time olympic gold medal winning player, and she later went on to coaching her teams who won olympic gold. a wnba championship in seattle. and she was inducted into the hall of fame in 1995. she was such a gentle, gentle giant. such a mentor to many of us and we're just. >> in shock. >> in shock at the age of 56. of heart failure. thinking of her family and many, many friends but she was a champion. i know we say that word a lot. she truly was. >> our hearts go out to her and to everyone who loved her as well. we'll go to ginger now with those fires burning in the west.
7:18 am
>> we have to start with the durango, colorado, this is the 416 fire. you're seeing a time-lapse image of what it looks like. just horrendous, 27,000 acres burned, 15% contained. and this fire comes along with heat. i'm talking 101, a record high in grand junction, colorado. this is carson city, nevada. the voltaire fire and more dry lightning and gusts up to 40. look at those highs very warm until the remnants of bud get up there this weekend then we can go to an extreme of flash flooding. the sunny cities now brought to you by quick silver card.

ke of 26 us to mak. former fraternity me charges was seen on surveillance video giving piazza a handle of vodka during an alcohol-fueled hazing ritual which ended with piazza eventually falling down a flight of stairs. piazza's fraternity brothers taking 12 hours to call 911 after finding the pledge inebriated and unconscious. >> there are too few words to describe a loss so great. this young man understands that. condolences go to the piazza family. >> reporter: piazza's grieving family has fought to get justice for their son since his death. >> i don't understand how they could be so heartless and inhumane. >> reporter: their attorney now saying the family is pleased to see one individual accept responsibility and encourage others to follow in his steps. >> we came to court. we acknowledged responsibility and he's prepared to be sentenced. >> reporter: now these were misdemeanors but burke could face time in prison when he's sentenced next month. 25 other men are charged in connection with piazza's death. the attorney general telling us
7:42 am
overnight he plans to hold every responsible individual accountable. robin. >> gio, thank you. and our senior legal analyst sunny hostin is back with us to talk about this as well. >> yeah. >> how do you think this man pleading guilty will impact the others. >> i think we'll see other plea, as well. i think we'll see other people taking responsibility. we may even see this young man cooperating with the government and testifying against his former fraternity brothers and i think that's really important here because we have the death of a young man, someone that had such a promising future and people need to be held accountable for their actions. >> how will this impact his sentencing? >> you know, i think when you do take a plea, prosecutors certainly sometimes recommend less jail time and perhaps that will happen if he cooperates with prosecutors. prosecutors will also recommend less jail time. ultimately, it's up to a judge but i can't imagine that he will escape all prison time in a case like this. this is, again, about the death of a young person. >> will finally people take this
7:43 am
seriously? >> you know, i think so. i think, you know, maybe decades ago or another one or two generations ago these were called "regrettable accidents." now prosecutors know this is unlawful behavior. i think attitudes have changed but not only -- and prosecutors are taking a hard line with these hazing deaths but not only attitudes have changed we have electronic evidence now. remember, the security cameras made the difference. we had security cameras here. e-mails, text messages and so given the fact that we're in a new time, a new day with technology, prosecutors have much more in their arsenal and i think we're going to be seeing a lot more prosecution of these hazing deaths. i was doing research. the government apparently doesn't have statistics as to how many deaths that have occurred because of hazing, which i think is not a good thing and perhaps the government will start taking a look but, over the past eight years you have over 60 deaths, hazing deaths, and so this is something that needs to be taken very seriously. >> i know and i keep thinking of
7:44 am
the piazza family, you know, and they are adamant in making sure that change comes about. >> and justice. >> and justice. we will see you later on "the view." >> you will. you will. 11:00. >> we'll be tuning in. thank you, sunny. amy. all right, robin. coming up next, take a look at this. how they managed to get a 180-pound dog off that roof. when we come back. roof. when we come back. when you buy a used car you should feel confident. that's why carmax has over 40,000 cars to choose from nationwide. with prices clearly marked, the same online as they are in the stores. that should give you some car-buying confidence. the type of confidence you need to wear white after labor day. the type of confidence to suddenly switch to an english accent for no reason whatsoever. yep... at carmax, it's all about confidence. nothing but net. nailed it! or should i say, nailed it gov'nor. at mccormick, we're obsessed with flavor. it's why we partner with sustainable farmers to find the finest herbs and spices.

>> your vision is how you something happens to you that takes your vision even partly away, it definitely has an impact on your quality of life. >> reporter: but most ophthalmologists say ramirez's experience is the exception, not the rule. >> now, there are rare complications associated with any surgery, but lasik today is the safest most effective procedure we have ever seen in ophthalmology. >> reporter: over 190 million americans wear corrective lenses. with over 9 million undergoing lasik eye surgery since the fda approved it in the 1990s. more than 95% of satisfied patients experienced 20/20 vision after surgery according to the fda. however, post-surgical risks like soreness, dry eye, even chronic pain, plus blurred and double vision are still risks.
8:19 am
>> lasik is a highly risky procedure. it takes a normal healthy cornea, damages it permanently. >> reporter: the fda telling abc news they now plan to issue new lasik patient labeling guidance to the industry to clearly communicate risks of lasik to patients. the fda also noted that their recent study on it found up to 2% of patients reported difficulty performing daily activities without corrective lenses. however, experts on both sides agree there are some people who may have worse outcomes. >> the most important aspect about lasik is to make certain that a very good doctor performs the evaluation making certain you're a good candidate. >> reporter: so ramirez says none of the surgeons he consulted ever warned him he could sustain permanent damage to his eyes. it's worth remembering this is an expensive procedure. it's up to you to ask the ricks. the doctors we spoke with said

and good morning. i'm reggie aqui from "abc7 mornings." this morning, san francisco is mourning the loss of one of the few female plumbers in the city. 34-year-old lilianna preciado died in a horrific accident yesterday. she and her crew were repairing a leak on 28th street and nowhenowey valley when she was struck and hit by a car that rolled off a tow truck. she leaves behind a 2-year-old daughter. just an awful accident. let's check in with alexis to see how traffic is doing. >> yeah, we're actually pretty empty at the bay bridge toll plaza, reggie, feeling like summertime volumes out there. we did just have a hit-and-run crash. sounds like that was pushed into the parking lot there on the left. a quick check of the north bay, southbound 101 past state route
8:28 am
37, we have a disabled vehicle sitting in the left lane, so you are jammed for about a half mile. >> as you can see behind me, a little gloomy on this day.
8:29 am
thanks to the cloud cover this morning, our temperatures are slower to recover from our morning lows. still a lot of 50s out there and a few 60s in the south bay and east bay where we have sunshine. pretty good if you're driving on the water or mass transit. temperatures keep getting cooler today through saturday, reggie.
8:30 am
>> yeah, can definitely feel it outside, thanks, mike. another update in about 3♪ welcome back to "gma." we have a very excited audience here. they should be excited, yes. [ applause ] because we are excited for our next guest, he is a superstar of the big screen. he is starring in a new movie, "gotti." you know him from his fancy footwork in "grease!" and quick strut in "saturday night live." he just celebrated john travolta day in brooklyn. please welcome the one, the only john travolta. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ staying alive, staying alive >> you got it. >> mwah. >> good to see you, man. >> ah. >> thank you.
8:31 am
>> oh, man, welcome. welcome, welcome. >> it's good to be here how is everybody? [ cheers and applause ] good? >> well, first off we have to say congratulations. it was declared john travolta day in brooklyn. >> yeah. >> on tuesday. congratulations. the ceremony was at lenny's pizza which you made famous from the movie in 1977. how does it feel to be forever to be forever be a brooklyn icon? >> icon. >> i tell you what, it's kind of my blueprint for my career, my foundation was kind of the borough of brooklyn. if you think about "welcome back, kotter" "saturday night fever," "get shorty" those characters were based in brooklyn and to top it off wit "gotti" is kind of the ultimate love letter to new york and to brooklyn so there you have it. [ applause ] >> and after that iconic movie "grease!" the 40th anniversary of "grease!" >> 40 years.
8:32 am
>> you know what, john, what is it about it resonating with generation after generation? >> you know, it's like any great piece of art or work, it's interpretive, so that would be a question that individuals would answer better than i could. i just know that i love it, and i have always loved it. i did it on broadway. i did it on the road. i did my daydream was to do it in the movies so you guys would be better at answering that question than me. what do you think it is? >> i think -- i mean, just the movie, it makes you feel good. and the songs just stick with you. everything sticks with you. it's all about just good feelings and the music. it's everything. it's like a perfect combination. >> people are wanting another one. they think you all should have kids, you and sandy have kids. what would you think about that? >> maybe we should ask kelly what she thinks about that. >>dancnnormanaro >>hat's not fair
8:33 am
>> you have to answer that. >> they both roc you know what, i'm going to give them a tie. i have to. [ applause ] >> okay. >> that was good. .hat was good. and now you're playing john gotti in this new movie and had a chance to spend a lot of time with the family. they were advisers on this movie. so for you to play a real-life character like john gotti with the family there, is that a lot of pressure? >> a good pressure and i'll tell you why, because as you all know i'm a familiar face to the world. it's more important for me to disappear into a character than it would be for another actor. so i felt like i needed all the support i could have and that family was willing to be 24/7 with any question, any home
8:34 am
because like i did with shapiro, you can't be distracted by my familiarity. you have to be lured in by becoming that person. so that's really what i tried to do and they thought i had arrived so i was very proud that i did. >> you do it time and time again. especially in this role. >> thank you. >> again. [ applause ] part of it -- i didn't realize until after dapper don. that was his nickname and you wore some of his actual clothing, did that help you? >> that was the haunting part because in the opening and closing of the movie i actually wear his overcoat, this checkered tweed type of thing with a velour collar and his cologne was on the coat and i could -- the scent was apparent and ait helped, y know, in an interesting way because he was quite a
8:35 am
character, you know, duality of a man so -- >> that's it. do you want to see a clip? here we are talking. do you want to see a clip? where are our manners? here he is. he is gotti. >> we the jurors in the above case find the defendant john gotti not guilty. >> i won this trial fair and square. with my third victory over the government the media nicknamed me the teflon don. i guess it stuck. >> are you the head of the gambino crime family. >> i'm the head of my family. >> do you know what your family does for a living? >> he provides. >> ooh. kelly, whoo. kelly. [ applause ] >> we were just saying, you look just like him and that was your real-life wife kelly preston d hoit to wo with her and be with >> we were very -- we're very careful about acting together
8:36 am
because there's a sensitivity in hollywood about that for many reasons, so i had decided years ago that we would wait for the right project because you remember, you know, i don't know if anyone is old enough to remember richard burton and liz taylor in "virginia woolf." they would have been cast in that anyway regardless so you pick the movie that you would be cast in whether you were a couple or not. >> you enjoy working with her, though. >> of course, but you can only enjoy -- you enjoy it more if you have an integrity about your choice of what you did together. >> good point. >> because she was on earlier this week and this is what she had to say about working with you. >> oh, did she? >> sorry about that. >> he got to spend every moment of every day with his loving wife. he just misses me so desperately when he's not with me so he better say that. [ applause ]
8:37 am
>> so, john -- >> huh-uh. >> can i ask you again how was it working with your wife? >> clearly she was being sarcastic. no, it was awesome. we had fun because we got to play other people, because, listen, when you play yourself it's one thing and we're married and it's a comfort zone but you have an obligation, a duty to become the people you're playing so how they would grieve, how they would enjoy each other is from their perspective so that's -- it gave something for kelly and i to do because we're more character actors than we are leading people for whatever reason, we just enjoy that more so we enjoyed the journey of being other people. >> bless your heart. you know you're a superstar and t.gastar, but you're an actor at the way you approach your craft
8:38 am
and what you want for us when we're watching your work. >> oh, thank you. my mother taught acting and she had a very high integrity about the craft and, you know, i think i tried to live up to her expectations. >> you're living up to it. >> thank you. >> the one thing about you, you're just a good person. >> thank you. >> really enjoyed that. thank you, john, for being here. "gotti" hits theaters tomorrow. make sure you go see it. we'll be right back.

favorite supermom hero,, mr. in. [ applause ] >> you know, it is great to have you both here. thank you guys for joining us. >> pleasure. >> it has been 14 years since the first "incredibles" movie. 14 years. time flies. seems like it was just yesterday but this movie resonates with so many people, young and old so how does it feel to be a part of something that just continues for 14 years and feels like yesterday to everyone? >> well, first off i think that it's fun that the movie picks up exactly where the first one left off. it's like 15 seconds later the second one begins, even though we're 14 years down the line. but i think that, you know, the movie really, it brings in people from all generations, i mean, you can go see "incredibles 2" if you're 95 and get a real charge out of it the
8:44 am
same as if you're -- your kids are 13. >> 13, yeah. >> they're going to love it. >> they loved the first one. i'm sure they'll love this one. you mentioned 14 years. you mentioned it picks up because the baby has not aged one bit in 14 years. >> right. >> but i'm curious for both of you, after 14 years do you have to go back and watch the first movie to kind of get a sense and get that feel back for what to do. >> i did. i did. because it had been 14 years and i didn't think we were going to do another one and i kind of forgot -- i didn't even know i was in the first one so anyway, went back and looked at it to get the vocal register because he was picking -- brad, the director was picking it up right after the first one ended so there was a different vocal register. i had been doing "parenthood" and there was a different voice for the guy i was playing and so that was my task. >> how long does it take you to guys to get back into it, while. >> i don't know. i think, you know, we both
8:45 am
recorded only with brad, the director, the creator, the genius so when i was suddenly in a room once again in a recording studio and there was brad opposite me, i don't know, it just was so familiar, i mean it took us about 2 1/2 years in the recording studio with brad to do the first "incredibles." so to be there again with him just felt incredibly like we're back. >> you are back. we're happy you're back. we're so happy you're back we're going to take a look at a clip of you being back. >> hey. >> all right, so here's a clip of "the incredibles 2." >> a new elasticycle. >> i didn't know you had a bike. >> hey, i had a mohawk. there is a lot about uh-me you don't know. >> a mohawk? >> you didn't miss anything. oh, yeah. this one is electric. >> what's that mean? >> oh.
8:46 am
it means it's torquey. i'll get the hang of it. >> you will be great. >> i will be great and you will too. >> and the voices -- your voices are so recognizable so have you ever had any kids recognize you from your voice and go, oh, you're mr. incredible? >> well, yeah, i've had mothers in the grocery store say to their 7-year-old that's mr. incredible and the kid absolutely looking at you like you're crazy or the mother is crazy. do something. do something that's mr. incredible. do something. >> showtime. and the kid goes, nah. you know. it's just embarrassing is what it is. >> you're not the guy. >> i'm not the guy. >> but i tell you what you guys, i'm so happy you're here and so happy we got to this movie 14 years later and everyone is looking forward to it. everybody looking forward to this?
