7:05 am
now. we brought the family down to howard county hospital last night so they could reunite with her. she was released from the hospital. we brought them back to philadelphia. she's at home now. we're letting them get some rest before we actually continue to interview her. we do have some information. we want to give her a chance to kind of settle down and be with family for a moment. >> what do you know about the suspect in this case? >> he's got a very extensive criminal history. he was already wanted in charles city, virginia for attempted murder, abduction, aggravated assault. i mean, a variety of charges. he was convicted of rain here in philadelphia back in 2005. he has a very extensive criminal history, a violent predator. we are very fortunate to get her back alive. >> i think you called him the thug yesterday. is there any evidence he targeted carlesha in particular? >> well, they didn't know one another beforehand. it could be a chance encounter.
7:06 am
we will know more when we have a chance to sit down and interview her and interrogate him. right now, he is being held on charges that were filed by virginia as i mentioned before. so we still got a lot of investigative work to do. but this was a stranger abduction as far as we know right now. >> this case got so much notice, of course, because of that under surveillance video that captured his violent abduction. in your mind, is that piece of videotape what made the difference and led finally to her rescue? >> there is absolutely no question. i have been in policing for 46 years. i've never actually seen a kid naping on video. so it really did add to the sense of urgency him we were able to get it out to the media right away. >> that followed by a couple other pieces of video we were able to obtain through the course of an investigation and that led to a tip of an individual who had sold a car to this person. we also contacted authorities in virginia, found that he had a warrant.
7:07 am
we were able to track him to jessup, maryland. we had a task force that was put together that included atf, fbi and the u.s. marshalls service. their baltimore field office actually are the ones who spotted the car, conducted a under surveillance. once he stepped out of the car, momentarily, they were able take him down and not have hostage situation and rescue miss gaither. so it worked out great. and it's unusual. usually the longer these things go the less likely you are to find a victim alive. >> i know you must be very happy to have a happy ending. congratulations on the great police work. philadelphia police commissioner charles ramsey. thank you. >> thank you. >> now, let's turn to matt. president obama is now suggesting it could lead to a new wave of compromise in washington but with the general election just two years away, is that possible? nbc senior white house correspondent chris jansing has more on that. hi, chris, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, matt.

8:35 am
bit, but this is your dad. >> what? old on. hey, guy, i know this is weird timing, but i got to take this, it's my dead dad. >> he's got me on hold. >> jeff, welcome back. good to see you. it doesn't make sense to talk about the plot in this. does it? >> no, there is no plot. it's thin and thiner, the plot. yeah. >> it's a series of gags strung together. did you have any idea it could survive 25 years later? >> we thought we cornered the market on 25-year-old boys. we thought we nailed that. over the years, which drove the sequel of the fans of all ages going i still laugh, it still cracks me up. >> why? what is it about these two best friends that you think people like so much. is it the innocence of them? >> i think it's the innocence, it's the friendship. there is nothing mean spirited about these two guys. they're the ones who are dumb.
8:36 am
we're not going after other people and we've all done something stupid in our lives and we just do it every 30 seconds. >> i know there was talk over the last 20 years of getting this back together. it never quite came to be until now. so why was at this time right time to bring these four friends back together? you know, lloyd and harry and jeff and jim? >> well, jim was resistant to sequels. he didn't do a sequel to anything. they wanted him to do "mask." he said no, let's just not do something to try to capitalize on it and make money. and again, it was five, ten, 15 years later they kept coming back to both of us, going, that's the movie, gosh, i wish you guys would do that. >> it's important to know when you get back together, you bring these characters back. i think everybody felt it was important they didn't change a lot. there hasn't been this amazing arc in the story, they weren't wiser, they had to be the same

guys. >> it made it easy to do. was there research involved in no. >> not even the first time. >> they haven't grown an ounce of intelligence in 20 years. what have they been doing? i don't know and during the movie, the sequel, we don't change at all. we're still the same at the end as the beginning. it's a beautiful thing to do. >> you never said this, if i had to copy a hollywood career, it might be yours. you might be at the top of the list. here's the reason why. you get to play some of the post-fascinating dramatic roles out there like on "the newsroom." you grab an emmy award for that, from what i understand, the day after you grab that you are on the set of a movie called "dumb and dumber 2." that's called having your cake and eating it too. >> 24 hours after win the emmy, jeff, we need to see some butt crack. i won an emmy. get down, drop the pants. so, it was -- look i wanted the range. i wanted to go from a to z.
8:38 am
that's what i did. i wouldn't have done it any other way. i love confusing those who try to pigeon hole me. >> it's also like some fight commercials. wait, there's more. because you also still have your life the way you want it. >> yeah. >> you still live in michigan. >> that is home. >> yes. >> even though hollywood calls every once in a while, you grab on that that fiercely? >> we wanted to raise the kids there. kathleen and i are from there, when it was 1986, we said, let's go back there, ra tidz kids in a place we understand. i'll compute and it worked. and "dumb and dumber" was one of the things, bomb, i did that. it bought me another ten years. i'm thrilled it worked out. >> married to the high school sweet heart. >> yeah. >> come on. >> she's still with me. >> you wouldn't even believe a script like this. good to see you. my pleasure t. movie is "dumb
