harvey's behind it so he's very passionate, very passionate, very dedicated to his work. >> would you rather do musical, drama, or comedy? >> you know what? i did one about five years ago. it did very well. it was a revival. my next movie was going to be a musical original. that's what i was drawn to. i've always wanted to do it. i saw "hello dolly" when i was 8 years aeld ss old. it was always something i was drawn to. i always wanted to be in a musical. >> this is not a replica of johnny depp. >> right. it's such a theatric ka experience. you can only do this in a theater what is being done on the stage now. it's just giant. i haven't seen that clip.
>> i said to you earlier in the green room are you loving it or is it work? >> i love it but it's also work. i'm sort of the glue in the piece. there's a lot of emotion in the show. a lot of loss. it's a very powerful piece. it's actually the best thing i've ever done. >> i worry about you because you're losing your voice. >> i got the flu on stage last wednesday. was standing in the mid of the evening's performance and i thought, oh dear that's not good and i had a rush go through me and a couple of days later it happened and then you push through it. ten you end up a voice. but we survived and i've got a couple more days to kind of recoup and then i'll have a little down time. >> beyond that does the singing come easy? >> yeah. i started out singing. that was the first thing i did when i was a guy when i was in eighth grade. came into all the classrooms and said all right, every boy in
here is going to audition for the choir. his name was richard mitten. i thought, yeah, why not. and i started singing. >> in the play you deliver a line that's a reference to "cheers" and in the audience everyone went nuts. >> it's more of a take. literally borrowed from jack benny. it's like a little wink. you look for these things all the time. you look for a way to wink to the audience and bring them in because that material is still a little bit foreign. but in this case it's so familiar i think they're looking for permission to actually acknowledge it. once i turn to the audience, they sort of explode. >> they call it absolutely thrilling around a celebration of imagination. >> yeah. i think it's pretty accurate. it's about hard spot love. look at the horse race. nobody loves everything but only hateful and consequential people don't like it that and
good for the family. it's also a good family show to go see. >> it's extraordinary for families. you know it's the best thing i've ever seen in a theater. it blows the roof off it. >> you've done everything. is there anything you haven't? >> there's a couple of things i'm still sniffing around. i want to direct a film and a couple of scripts. it's a labor of love and you realize as you go through life it's a challenging role to play directing a film. it's exhausting. >> this play in the film there's a lot of physicality. you're moving around a lot. >> if you want to lose a little weight it's fantastic. i always do a play to get back in shape. >> has it been challenging to keep up with a rehearsal schedule? >> oh, yeah it's been a bear. it's tough. they leave the previews for a whole month. you can rehearse all day and do a show at night. once the show is open, it's locked and you don't get to
rehearse. >> what would bring you back to episodic television. >> great words, great scripts. i recently did a script with martin lawrence. for him it was worth a try. i went back to television for him. >> you're 60 years old. >> yes, ma'am. >> six kids. >> and young. >> your youngest is 8 years old. congratulations. >> yes. >> gabriel. and some of your darts are following your footsteps. >> they all seem to be interested in that. spencer is doing a show right now. >> look at how gorgeous. >> oh, yeah. there's grier with golden globe. a month and a half ago. they're lovely. they've turned out okay so far. >> what advice? >> do something you love. find it and commit to it and work hard. >> that's the best advice in life. >> yeah. >> and find your passion. >> i'm doing that right now. >> congratulations. >> thank you so much.

i'm kevin nealon comedian. and i'm arnold palmer, professional golfer. know what we have in common? we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. me, when i had a blood clot in my leg that could have traveled to my lungs. that's why i took xarelto®, too. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. i took xarelto® for afib... an irregular heartbeat that can lead to a stroke from a blood clot. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. hey, well i'm glad we got together. 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. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. tell me about it. let's see, golf clinic, or blood clinic? ooh, that's a tough one. not this time. not with xarelto®. anything else? i'll have another arnold palmer. ok. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? 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 xarelto® 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 bleeding and in rare cases may be fatal. get help right away if you develop 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. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. 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®. you may be able to get up to 12 months at no cost.
