i'm like great. i'm in my uggs, sweatpants and sweatshirt. i go to the 6:00 showing, it is the premier for the movie. i had no idea. i don't think matt had any idea. i'm not going to throw him under the bus. >> but you just backhanded. >> so you showed up at an actual >> yes. you're at the premier. everybody's on the red carpet. everybody's nice and fancy dressed. the whole cast comes out and they introduce the show and the cast. there i am just in my uggs. so i duck in the back door, i grab my ticket. but on my way to grab the popcorn off the table, i knock over like six bags of popcorn to the guy who's sweeping up popcorn right next to me.
funny. >> he wanted nothing to do with me. >> he's thinking this is the woman throwing matt greenfield under the bus. >> some things in life, don't you wish it was like the "truman show" like please let someone be recording this moment in life. that's crazy. >> it was an epic fail on so many different levels. but the movie was actually fantastic. we interview six or seven people from the cast, including eng lee, the director of the >> that makes it all worth it. >> these are real life stories.

she's gorgeous. prince harry says some people in the media have crossed the line. you may recognize her from the show "suits." that's on the usa network. the palace sent out a statement basically saying that he was objecting to this wave of abuse and harassment. prince harry's worried about miss markle's safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her. it is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that miss markle should be subjected to such a storm. this is the price she has to pay and that this is all part of the game. he strongly disagrees. this is not a game, it is her life. as dylan just asked the question, looking at pictures, why are people attacking her? well, meghan has revealed her father is caucasian, her mother is african-american. so apparently people take issue with her background and have come after her. >> sad. you got to meet her when you were visiting --
of "suits" up in toronto. it was wonderful. the show is known for its amazing wardrobe. she thoed showed me through the closet. i got to try on this very expensive dress. she's so lovely. whenever she comes here she remembers my name. so we're kind of like bffs. so if they get married -- >> might be a bit of a stretch. >> listen, a girl can cream. someone once dreamt of dating a prince and there she has it. he has a heinz 57. >> my dad used to say heinz 57. i love that. you have something for us that you have an issue with. >> i don't know i would call it an issue. of course, social media, these trends happen. ice bucket challenge, things like that. well, now we got the manikin challenge. okay? >> you know what it is? >> of course. people all of a sudden stand still and -- boom.

>> mr. roker then held it for like 20 minutes. >> savannah moved. then this one. >> al, you crushed it. >> he stayed that way for 15 minutes. >> i have an unfair advantage. as a kid, this is the kind of nerd i was and my friends were. we practiced sitcom freeze frames. in the '70s a sitcom, well, he'll have big problems then -- and then the credits would go. and did we miss the shot just then? >> no. ? >> our control room trying now. that's why nobody was listening. >> oh. okay. >> maryann. >> come on. christine! are they doing a magic trick? >> i love this! let's go to the back row.
what is that? the jerry jones of the "today" show. >> oh, come on! let's move on over. >> nice. nice. >> tammy's supposed to have a glass of wine in her hand. i'm going to make her laugh. >> oh, tammy! oh! >> oh, come on! >> crumble. she folded like a cheap suit. >> send us your video of your manikin challenge, #todays take. >> let's face it, no matter what you do, it can't be as bad as tammy in the control room. >> when we were kids, you tried to keep a serious face, my mom would always go, "i see that smile." it would make you so angry, you wouldn't help but smile.

will be thankful for. good to see you. >> thanks for having me today. >> one of the things the most expensive real estate or valuable real estate is the oven. you've got some great ideas to help free that up. >> thanksgiving can be a really stressful time in any household. i know myself, i have four kids. i am constantly shuffling things around. so any time i can save space and not put it in the oven, i am excited. >> slow cooker? >> slow cooker. very simple. you can use this to make a lovely green bean casserole, you can put your sweet potato casserole in there. you can keep all of your foods warm until you are ready to serve them. >> brilliant. gravy. people trying to get the lumps out of gravy. >> gravy is kind of the bain of my existence. but we're going to work through it. all we have to do is take a little bit of our gravy. pour it right into the food processor. you got nice lumpy gravy right there.
there we go. we pulse it. you've done this before, haven't you? >> i've gotten caught before. >> there you go. pulse that bad boy up. and then we have this luscious smooth gravy that you can actually keep warm in a thermos. >> that is brilliant! >> right? >> you just pour it in and it will stay nice and toasty warm until you are ready to serve it to your table. >> the other thing, trying to keep everything warm. again, you don't want to take up space in the oven. >> no, you don't. but we used to use coolers for just keeping drinks cold. now you can actually use y cooler with some lined tin foil and place your side dishes right in the cooler just like that. >> that's so smart. >> close it up. you're good to go. >> flaky pie crust. this is something dylan said she does. i never heard about this. >> this is a really nifty tool. pie crust can be really difficult because it is -- you're baking. but if you substitute vodka or any other liquor -- >> really! >> you can use bourbon for
you can use anything you like. but vodka will actually make your pie crust fluffier and it will actually be like a little bit flakier. >> that's really interesting. >> you put it right in here. >> i can put it all in? >> i say put it all in. you're going to do half vodka, half water. right? mix it all up. don't spill things. don't break things. >> couple of the crew members rushed over to try to get this. >> and there you go. >>n potatoes, what's your hack? >> last, but not least. so a little bit of baking soda goes a long way. adding a pinch of baking soda to your mashed potatoes works with the cream as an agent and makes your mashed potatoes if you havyer. >> happy thanksgiving. >> happy thanksgiving to you, too. >> still ahead, steve martin showing us his serious side in a new movie getting a lot of buzz. dylan catches up with him and the cast after your local

why is with a he so perfect for this role because he is playing this young, innocent soldier. >> nothing is like somebody's first time and it is incredible top-notch talent. it feels to me that i'm not teaching him, coaching him or directing him. it's like something he know through his life. it is like my "avatar" or whatever. >> will are a ton of ways you can get shipped home. >> reporter: kristinwa to convince him to return home and not return with his platoon to iraq. >> you had a lot of scenes with joe. how would you say he was going into his first movie. >> oh, man. >> yeah. ready? some of the most moving honest, present experiences i've had with people are not like trained actors. it was like -- i was going -- i know we're on tv. it was like such a pleasure. i love this movie. i think he's so -- so there.

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 conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. everything you need to know about life, you can learn from granola. keep it simple. always be real. don't be artificial, but always be sweet. nature valley granola bars.
