welcome to "cbs this morning." the united states has a new and powerful reason to worry about north korea. the secretive nation this morning claims it's successfully tested its first hydrogen bomb. effort quake monitors picked up a tremor measured at 5.1 in magnitude. but experts are skeptical. they say the explosion was much smaller than what an h-bomb detonation would produce. >> this is north korea's fourth claim of the a nuclear test, and the first since 2013. in a statement the white house says the u.s. will respond appropriately to any north korean provocations. seth doane is in beijing, where the government there is denouncing the test. seth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the test took north korea's neighbors here in the region by surprise. those initial reports of an earthqua earthquake, it turns out it was seismic activity, but it was man-ma man-made. on state tv today, north korea claimed its first ever test of a
miniaturized hydrogen bomb was a perfect success. north korea took aim at the u.s. and said the test was a self-defense measure. the explosion, which registered as a magnitude 5.1 quake, took place where nuclear tests were carried out in 2006, 2009, and 2013. photos today showed north koreans cheering the news, while in south korea, citizens watched nervously. in media reports, south korea's military cast doubt on whether the explosion was big enough to be a hydrogen bomb. north korea is infamous for its saber rattling. but a height row general bomb would be a major advance in technology. it's more powerful and difficult to make than an atomic bomb. north korean tv showed what appeared to be a personal note from kim jong un, signing off on
a test. when we were in north korea in october, it appeared relations with china, its biggest ally, were warming. china sent a top government official to the military parade we attended. but today china joined neighbors in the region and strongly condemned the nuclear tests. can we expect to see anything other than words? will there be some action on china's part? >> translator: china has been making active efforts toward the goal of nuclear peace. >> reporter: the u.s. is trying to determine whether this is indeed a hydrogen bomb. an emergency meeting of the united nations security council is set for today. >> thanks, seth. analyst juan zarate studied
north korea as an adviser to president george w. bush and is now a member of the task force on north korea. juan, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> how long will it take for the united states to determine if this was an h bomb, a hydrogen come to, and if it was, if they have confirmation, what will it change? >> charlie, this could be a game changer if it turns out this was a hydrogen bomb. it will take some weeks, given the nature of using sensors, intelligence, and other capabilities to determine what happened. we don't know for sure yet. if it was a hydrogen bomb, that will demonstrate a technology leap forward for north korea. it would mean they're close to being able to put that on a warhead and potentially deploy it well beyond the korean peninsula. >> that is a key question, miniaturizing and their ability to launch. what strike capabilities do they have? >> norah, north korea has been
testing recently submarine-launched ballistic missiles. they've been trying to develop other ballistic missile capabilities. these are immature. analysts don't think they've reached the stage of being successful missile programs. but they're advancing, and not just there but obviously with the nuclear program. whether or not it was a hydrogen bomb, this is an advancement in their nuclear program. >> why would they do it, and what can you tell us about their leader, kim jong un? >> we don't know much about the leader, he's erratic and mysterious. the most we know about him is from dennis rodman. they like to project strength both internally and externally. they used brinksmanship as a way of projecting strength and
getting what they want at the negotiating table. for now we're not negotiating, and this is a wicked problem for the administration. >> thank you very much, juan zarate. the two leading republican candidates are having their sharpest clash of the campaign this morning. donald trump told an interviewer that ted cruz could face legal trouble as the gop nominee because of where he was born. cruz responded with a six that the trump campaign is going downhill. major garrett is covering the republican race in manchester, new hampshire. major, oh, boy, and good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump has gone birther again. this time on ted cruz, openly questioning whether cruz's birth in canada might create legal obstacles in his bid for the white house. interestingly, trump said this backstage before his rally last night in the small northern new hampshire town of claremont. he said nothing about this before the hundreds of supporters who shivered outside in the cold before coming inside to pack the local high school to
see the gop frontrunner. >> we're leading everybody. >> reporter: donald trump sounds like the leader but is acting like a politician in peril. >> people are worried that if he weren't born in this country, which he wasn't, he was born in canada, the problem is that if the democrats bring a lawsuit, the lawsuit could take years to revolve and how do you have a candidate where there's something over the head of the party and that individual? >> reporter: trump then pretended he wasn't trying to take cruz down a peg in iowa, where the two are locked in a battle for first. >> i hope this would not be a reason for disqualification. >> reporter: before appearing with cruz at a rally on the capital steps in september, trump said cruz's canadian birth was a non-issue. cruz was born in canada to an american mother, making him a u.s. citizen. cruz's response? a twitter link to fonzie jumping a shark on the tv show "happy days," recognized ever since as
a symbol for an entertainment phase gone hopelessly stale. on the battle front of tv ads, cruz tried to tap the same grain of immigration frustration trump has inspired. >> the politics would be different if a bunch of lawyers or bankers were crossing the rio grande. >> reporter: chris christie's super-pac produced this ad on the future of the prison on guantanamo bay. >> keep every rotten dangerous terrorist who is there and never let them go. >> reporter: christie is being attacked by lots of republicans here, not named trump, and he's pushing back. he said jeb bush had a cushy time as governor of florida and was unfit for the white house. christie is responding to negative ads from a marco rubio super-pac. >> major, thanks.
president obama says he's taking common sense steps to restrict gun sales. this morning his executive actions faced strong political opposition from republicans and a few democrats. margaret brennan is at the white house where the president spelled out his plan to bypass congress. margar margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president obama mourned a wave of gun violence in america and said he's trying to tighten restrictions on gun sales. the moment became one of the most heartfelt speeches of his presidency. the president wiped away tears while remembering the 20 schoolchildren killed in new town, connecticut three years ago. >> first graders in new town. first graders. every time i think about those kids, it gets me mad. and by the way, it happens on
the streets of chicago every day. [ applause ] >> reporter: flanked by the relatives of shooting victims, the president announced stricter gun rules that white house officials say he can impose without approval from congress. the executive actions require all gun dealers to be licensed and conduct background checks, would hire 200 additional atf investigators to make background checks more effective, and dedicate $500 million to mental health treatment. utah republican jason chaffetz called the president's move an abuse of power. >> the president cannot just unilaterally make up new laws. >> until the politicians -- >> reporter: late last night, the nra posted this video, claiming that existing laws need stricter enforcement rather than expanding background checks. >> the only thing the average american has heard about background checks is the absolute fallacy that what we need is more.
>> reporter: but the president said after watching the national rifle association lobby congress to kill gun safety legislation shortly after the new town massacre, he had no choice. >> that's why we're here today. not to debate the last mass shooting, but to do something to try to prevent the next one. >> it's not going to be enough. >> reporter: former atf assistant director michael bouchard said it won't prevent the next shooting. >> 200 isn't enough. they've been understaffed for years. it won't make much of a difference. >> reporter: white house officials admit these proposals are modest restrictions, but say this is the farthest that president obama can go without help from congress. >> margaret, thank you so much. el niño is threatening parts of the west this morning with more dangerous weather. heavy rain and high winds will take aim at california. today's storm is the second in a series of systems. 6 inches of rain could fall by
friday. some drivers around los angeles had to ditch their flooded cars. there is damage from a reported tornado nearby. ben tracy is next to the los angeles river. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we're expecting the rain to start falling here in los angeles in about two hours as more storms move through. take a look at this. this is the l.a. river, which yesterday rose by about 10 feet, has now dropped all the way back down, but as that rain starts falling, we are expecting the river to once again start rising. the los angeles river was rushing with rapids. water levels rose from less than an inch deep by morning to several feet by midday. overnight in san diego, lifeguards rescued two homeless men stranded in the rising san diego river. >> we were hitting logs and debris in the current. at one point we got swept in the current down with them and got spun around. >> reporter: as much as 3 inches of rain fell across parts of southern california tuesday, snarling traffic on muddy
roadways and sending stranded drivers scrambling for safety. >> i saw cars going through it. so i thought, oh, i'm fine, until i felt my car slightly lift off, and i just felt all the water, and then i was like, i can't -- i can't move. >> reporter: a strong gust front in l.a. county blew out windows in eight commercial buildings. the strong winds downed power lines and sent debris crashing into windshields. in parts of the southern california that were only recently fighting droughts and wildfire, the heavy rain is now threatening dangerous mudslides. ed heinlein constructed retaining walls around his home, but that may not be enough. >> the likelihood is the house will be shoved into the street. >> reporter: in the sierra nevada mountains, as much as 2 feet is expected to fall today. that's not stopping truckers from plowing through. >> we've got to do it just to get the freight on the other side. >> reporter: of course there is
an upside to all of this wild weather. after four years of intense drought, california needs all the rain and the snow it can get. >> thank you, ben. nice to hear there is an upside to that story. we're following breaking news in southern california where a light earthquake shook the region. the4.5 quake hit about half an hour ago near banning, that's east of los angeles. police in the area say there is no immediate word of damage or injuries. but the u.s. geological survey says it was felt throughout the l.a. basin. the fbi is asking the public to help complete the picture of what the san bernardino killers did after the deadly attacks. investigators pieced together a timeline for the day when syed farook and tashfeen malik killed 22 people and wounded others. but after the shooting there is an 18-minute gap until the gun battle in which they died.
the fbi is trying to account for the missing minutes in case they met with anyone investigators have not interviewed. the mother of the so-called affluenza teen could return to texas any day now. she waived her extradition. her son is still in mexico, fighting deportation. mireya villarreal is in los angeles, where tonya couch traveled from mexico. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. law enforcement officials are working with texas authorities to coordinate the return of tonya couch. the details of the transfer will not be made public for security reasons. once in a texas jail, she'll face a $1 million bond. tonya couch was barely visible as she stood behind a partition in a los angeles courtroom tuesday. after spending nearly a week in a california jail, the 48-year-old mother agreed to be extradited. texas authorities will now bring
her back to tarrant county. she's facing third degree felony charges for allegedly helping her son ethan escape to mexico. tarrant county's sheriff, dee anderson. >> hope hoping if everything goes smoothly, we'll get her back here. >> reporter: more than 1500 miles away in mexico city, ethan couch had a meeting of his own. reporters swarmed his high powered mexican attorney, fernando benitez, as he entered the facility were couch is being held. benitez didn't say much about their visit but confirmed he spoke with couch about his return to the u.s. >> i'm not at liberty to talk about what we discussed, i'm sorry. >> reporter: at one point the teenager visited this port port strip club. it's still unclear when couch will return to texas. the troubled 18-year-old was sentenced to ten years of juvenile probation in fort worth for killing four people in a
2013 drunk driving car wreck. couch allegedly violated that probation when he fled to mexico in december. >> i'll be satisfied when we have them both locked up here. maybe we can take a little justice for those families and people that were killed. >> reporter: couch's attorney in mexico is asking his client be extradited and not deported. if that happens, it could delay ethan's return to the u.s. by several months. >> thank you. an arrest in the road rage killing of a college student we've been reporting on. ahead, the marine facing charges and how some video from inside a club could from the very busy kpix 5 weather center, good morning. let's get to it. hi-def doppler with the main event, the main energy out of here but behind it, we do have bands and bands of rain pushing onshore causing an urban and small stream flood advisory in effect. high surf warning in effect, as well. right now, temperatures with the rain and the wind in the

i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial
heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. my here at c.k. mondavi.on, the vice president of operations to make this fine wine it takes a lot of energy. pg&e is the energy expert. we reached out to pg&e to become more efficient. my job is basically to help them achieve their goals around sustainability and really to keep their overhead low. solar and energy efficiency are all core values of pg&e. they've given us the tools that we need to become more efficient

good morning to our viewers in the west. it is wednesday, january 6, 2016. and welcome back to "cbs this morning." there's more real news ahead, including the future of cancer prevention and treatment. dr. david agus and a panel of experts will share how your body can help fight disease. but first here's today's eye opener at 8:00. that test really took north korea's neighbor by surprise. the u.s. is trying to determine whether this was a hydrogen bomb. if it was, that will demonstrate a leap forward for north korea. president obama mourned gun
violence in america and said he's trying to tighten restrictions on gun sales. >> after four years of intense drought, california needs all the rain and the snow it can get. this bakery and deli sold a winning ticket for the jackpot of just over $450 million. >> that's a really nice, tight, black lam bborghini that i woul like to have. you're getting your driver's license, i want you to learn what it's like to drive when there are other passengers in the car. >> i can't do this all day. i'm charlie rose with gail king and nora h o'donnell.
governments around the world are reacting with alarm and skepticism. the test registered overnight as a magnitude 5.1 earthquake. it was centered at a site where nuclear tests were carried out in 2006, 2009 and 2013. north korea's announcement on state-run television took aim at the united states. it said the test was a self-defense measure. >> and people across the border in south korea watched nervously, but south korea's military says it doubts the explosion was big enough to be a hydrogen bomb. the u.n. security council is holding an emergency meeting at this hour to address that situation. president obama mourned gun violence victims. the government will hire 200 more investigators to make those checks more effective. there are also plans to increase
mental health treatment and to improve reporting to the background check system. >> the president has seen his share of mass shootings during his term. he spoke about them in his remarks on tuesday. the president shared a new level of that emotion tuesday, talking about balancing the right to bear arms with other rights. >> our unalienable right to life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, those rights were stripped from college kids in blacksberg and santa barbara and from high schoolers at columbine. and from first graders in new town. every time i think about those kids, it gets me mad. and by the way, it happens on the streets of chicago every day.
>> the president also said that if you pass a background check you can buy a gun. and he said this plan is not a threat to take anyone's guns away, but jeb bush -- >> you can't by executive order do things that the constitution doesn't allow you to do. >> what he's basically doing, he's issuing things and he's ignoring the legalities of it. >> president obama came out with yet another set of laws, executive actions threatening our second amendment right to keep and bear arms. >> this is a liberal agenda on his part that makes no sense. >> why is he signing executive orders all the time? it's no good. it's no fair, and they're not going to screw around with the second amendment, okay? it's not going to happen. >> comments from people cam paning for the presidency.
a cbs "new york times" poll showed that 87% of republicans favor background checks on all gun buyers, that number is similar to the views of all americans. for the first time donald trump suggested that ted cruz's birth in canada might threaten his why is bid. >> the problem ask if the democrats bring a lawsuit and that lawsuit can take years to resolve and how do you govern when that's over the head of an individual? >> cruz was born in canada to an american mother. the constitution says no person except a natural born citizen shall be eligible to the office of president. it does not define what natural born means. >> but a 2011 report from the congressional research service clarifies that natural borne includes people born abroad to u.s. citizen parents. the state department agrees.
it says, quote, a child born abroad to one u.s. citizen parent acquires u.s. citizenship at birth. since cruz is born to an american mother, he has natural born citizenship. >> this was also an issue as i recall with senator mccain. he was born overseas because his father was serving in the navy. so it has been discussed before. a san diego man says that the tsa overreacted in the search of his 10-year-old daughter. agents at raleigh-durham international airport patted down the 10-year-old. it's all because she had a juice box in her carry on. her father says all that screening took at least an hour. the tsa says in this case agents followed procedures. here's the view from the drone itself e.

natural grass fields. >> these professional athletes, you know, coming for the super bowl, they have their careers built. they have their whole lives already set. we're just getting started, we're young athletes trying to build our careers. >> reporter: the nfl and the soccer league will face-off in court on january 11th. the soccer league is asking for a commitment from santa clara to ensure the soccer teams will have a place to play. >> wow, that's interesting. >> a lot going and the irony is we will be the ones that will be in that facile ity, it's all for the media. >> yeah. there is a little bit of irony there. thank you very much. >> yep, yep. new developments in how you can increase your odds of beating cancer, our dr. david agus is in the green room with some of the country's leading

>> lg showed a refrigerator you can walk up to and wave your foot in front of it. kind of like the tailgate on some modern cars. and it will automatically pop the door open in case your arms are just too full of groceries and/or kids. then a glass door on it that is smoked for darkness. tap on it with your knuckles and it goes light. you can peek in without having to open the door and see what is in there. >> it's so hard to open the door. so hard to open that refrigerator door! i know! >> yeah. old first world problems, right. samsung has a refrigerator with built-in cameras now that take shots of what is in there. so when you're at the store and aren't sure if you're out of something, log into the fridge and take a peek on your phone. >> what about the washing machine? >> oh, this is one from marathon. a start-up in silicon valley. a great story. a washer and dryer in one machine. not stacked. it's one machine! but unlike some models they sell in europe that are like that, this one has a full vented instructions and means it's a
real dryer and really work. this is is it's not about it being smaller but easier. put all of your clothes in once. there is no second trip to have to change them into the dryer! what is fascinating is it can tell if you left your phone in your clothes and send you a message that you need to come and get it! >> how? >> it better not be because my phone is already in the washer, right, so it better not be a text message. >> before the water starts? >> let's hope it starts before the water flows. how about driverless cars? >> seeing a lot of those here tonight and next is the detroit auto show. the thing here we are even seeing a car that was a drone and prototype car that takes selfies of you driving it. >> brian cooley, thanks so much and have a fun time in vegas.

to prevent and treat cancer. our dr. david agus, his new book is called "the lucky years." he writes one day cancer will be a manageable condition much in the way people can live with arges and type 1 diabetes. >> he is here along with dr. judy gasher and also anna barker, former deputy director at the national director of the cancer institute. pleased to have you all here. 44 years ago, president nixon declared a war on cancer. where are we in that war? >> you know, i don't think we have won at all and i think we are actually just at the beginning of the war. for the first time ever, i can walk into a patient's room and have optimism. not optimism i can cure them but optimism i can make them live longer and better with than
horrible disease. >> what has changed? >> we have two kinds of therapy. precision medicine and immunotherapy that is offering a staggering hope in this disease and both of them is actually in practice. >> i know you agree on that. how did immunotherapy works? it's helped president jimmy carter. >> it has looked in way of treating cancer. in years past what we have done is target the cancer and cut it out and treat with a tox cal chem. now immunotherapy is looking us to change the immune system and entirely different way of treating cancer. it's 40 years in the making but we are there and we are seeing a lot of responses. durable responses in patients we have never seen before. >> how does it work? >> it's pretty exciting. >> how does it work? >> it can work in many ways. it can work by turning on your lympho cites or taking things
off cancer cells called checkpoint inhibitors are popular now. >> the cancer -- this block that don't eat me signal to allow the cells to come in and eat them. >> we want that. judy, you talk about the genetics. angelina jolie brought a lot to the braach regime. >> not very many people have a strong gene like ankgelina joli. we save lives for those people. for the rest of us who don't have those genes, all of our genes have a role in balancing what we are exposed to and how we fight them off ourselves. so our genes are still important. finally, our cancers have their own versions of our genes and that is where targeted therapies and physician medicines come when you can understand part of the biology driving that tumor and those genes that are making
it different and target those. >> but it's still such a scary thing. i'm going to get a mammogram on friday and it's always a very nerve wracking thing. you look at the statistics where it says every three minutes, two people in the u.s. die from cancer. when you hear the "c" word you think, oh, no, it's over. i don't understand, david with, all of the brains we have working on it and all of the technology, that we still can't say we can cure it. >> listen. i'm with you. we have to approach it in a different way. historically we target the cancer cell but more we are trying to change the system. my job is to target that cancer and kill the cell and to change you where the doesn't want to grow and a new way of approaching and i hope we yield from it but you're right, we failed. my business has not done as well as we could have. >> david, what we underestimate is this disease. every disease, there are similarities, but the cancer cells can be different within an individually and the cancers
between individuals canning dwig -- can be quite different. the challenge is to target each individual and their genes that get translated. it's a huge challenge. we don't underestimate the challenge. >> are we looking at the possibility that some of the new therapies can attack a number of different cancers, not just a specific cancer? >> correct. we are seeing what we call signatures. changes in the genes that look reproducti reproducible from one type of cancer to the other. your risk of kidney cancer is what for lung cancer what you receive from kidney cancer. we are just understanding the changes to let us target that particular individually. >> you offer an anecdote about steve jobs' kansas city. >> he was safe on a lily pad but
once the cancer progressed he was swimming again in the pond. what is true that anna said. 1840s we started to characterize cancer by body parts and it hasn't changed since. we will categorize them by on switches and a new way you'll not have lung cancer but something of the kind. >> let's talk about prevention. the thing that most people should start focusing on. you say in your book what you do early on in life affects what you do later in life. what can we do when we think about prevention? >> i think there is a lot we can do. >> yes. >> unfortunately, much of it is the basic things we have already known. >> yes. >> we would prevent cancer if we could get rid of cigarettes. >> environmental factors? >> the environmental factors and lifestyle factors. the things you can control. if you can heat a healthy diet and exercise and try to take good care of yourself and not smoke, you can reduce cancer risks by 40%. 40% is huge. then you're left with all of
those -- and in trying to stay ahead. so that is what we talked about geneti genetics. some people will learn they can prevent. others have to play the healthy lifestyle game all their lives. we talked about early detection. that is still important. we do beat some cancers when we find them early. >> do you think -- do you agree with dr. agus about baby aspinner every day? >> yes, 100%. >> 100%? >> yes! >> and for heart disease too. it's a two-fer. >> prostate cancer, baby aspinna aspirin. damian lewis has a new role. you'll love to hate this guy. we will ask him about that. what about those james bond rumors that keep bubbling up about you, damian lewis? over here, damian.
>> damian lewis became a star as brodie on "homeland." and now to star in "billions." he plays a powerful hedge fund manager in his success and expensive real estate gets the attention of the u.s. attorney who thinks the hedge fund isn't trading above board. >> you're sending me messages. i'm here. >> well, in my office thought you might buy that house. i told them you have big -- but not that big. >> yeah, right. i'll probably pass. it's so nice, though, you know? feels like you're part of the beach and ocean and all that air out there? you know about it. your daddy has got a little place out there. he must let you use a bedroom some weekends if you say please. >> walk away. >> wow! damian lewis! good morning. >> you're in trouble!
>> you know? >> let's just say this is not objective because we are all huge fans of you. we loved "homeland" and this. is it fun playing a billionaire? >> great fun playing a billionaire. i'd like to know what it's like to be a billionaire. it was good fun. in terms of production value on the show, you know, we were moments in a yacht and helicopter and fast cars and all of that kind of stuff and using the beautiful new york -- >> did you talk to hedge fund guys who make so much money every year? >> i did. they were all fascinating. all with a compelling defense for being billionaires, being hedge fund titans. >> i don't know if you've seen it. a piece in "wall street journal" today in the business section about how the writers met with a u.s. attorney here in new york to also get a sense for this whole thing. so it's not so far-fetched and not so fictional. >> no. and i'm not going to mention any
names but in recent history, i think there has been this relationship played out a little bit between the u.s. attorney and the financial titans here in new york. >> investigation continues. >> so we hope -- we hope that much -- in fact, you led with that clip of "homeland" much of the way "homeland" dovetailed in a enout of the news. >> tell us what that conflict is between the u.s. attorney played by giomadi and you playing the businessman. >> you're playing the role of who is bigger. just saying. >> there is only one winner! you're right. you're right to say that it's kings in their kingdoms. it's chiefs and this is about power. it's power politics. it's about wealth. political power and financial power. and what are these guys prepared to do to retain that power?
and also, you know, it is an entertaining piece. >> it is. >> it is about these two guys slugging it out, two heavyweights slugging it out. it's also, you know, carefully just threaded in there, a little argument, a little discourse on libertarian versus regulation, new money versus old money. i'm a blue collar guy, come up from not very much humble beginning and made a lot of money and in some ways he represents the american idea. giamad ericks's character is ivy league and decided to took very little money to fight in the public's name. so he believes i'm doing wrong things. i think he should state out of my turf. >> it opens with a kinky sex scene. >> i knew you were going to watch the show. >> i'm not getting hooked on another drama. it started with that, and he said, there you go. i want to talk about your accent. how did you decide which new york accent you were going to do? >> generous of you.
as long as i have some kind of new york accent. >> you do. >> we wanted it to be -- look. when i first took it, i thought, great i can do my job and bada, bada boom and it would be raunchy and fantastic and doing this the whole time using my hands a lot. and i did try that for about half a day and brian and david, the show's creators, took me to one side and said, this is fine, but it's not our show. so this guy is from yonkers, okay? so in the end, i decided the rhythms and the emphasis the way new york speaks with that and emphatic quality with pace and was the most important thing to latch on to, so i hope i've found that. >> andrew ross is a friend of a lot of people on this show. he did what? he wrote? >> andrew is a cocreator of the show and coexecutive producer.
he gave access because of his ties with the financial journalists and "the new york times." he had access to all of these guys. so it allowed brian and david to go and sit down with these guys and talk with them and create friendships, and use them as source material. >> are you going to be the next james bond? >> no. i could tell you but i'd have to kill you. >> would you like to? would you like that job? i think you would be great at it. >> james bond? >> yes. >> that is the multimillion dollar question. >> no. come on. you'd love to be james bond. >> look. when you're growing up as a kid, you know, if someone said to you would you like to be james bond? you would love to say you'd love for it to happen and would i ruin one of my heroes by playing it? >> i guess we will have to stay tuned. >> we and i think he is here to stay. >> stay tuned. the,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ♪
