  • I think a lot of people at home right

  • now are going to be cheered up by seeing our first guest.

  • Please welcome Jason Momoa.

  • Hi, everyone.

  • Hi, Ellen.

  • Hi.

  • That's Andy in the background clapping.

  • He's outside.

  • I don't let him in.

  • What's up, Andy.

  • What's up, brother.

  • How are you doing, man?

  • How are you doing?

  • It feels like to me you're the one guy that

  • would be prepared to be quarantined

  • because you have a funhouse.

  • You have so many things going on there.

  • I do, yeah.

  • We've had a really nice time.

  • I rarely get to be home so it's pretty special.

  • And there's a lot of things.

  • We've got skateboard ramps, and climbing walls,

  • and throwing tomahawks, and shooting bow and arrow.

  • And so we have a little bit of space.

  • I feel very thankful.

  • It's nice being home.

  • I'm never home.

  • Yeah, I bet.

  • I bet you're always working.

  • Where are you right now?

  • What room are you in?

  • I'm in my man cave-- one of the man caves.

  • [LAUGHS] This is motorcycles, and guitars,

  • and [BLEEP] like that .

  • Stuff like that, I mean.

  • You know.

  • OK.

  • Yeah, I didn't want to judge your living room if that's what

  • your living room looks like.

  • I didn't want to--

  • Yeah, this is definitely not my--

  • Just checking.

  • --it's just the man cave.

  • Yeah, all right.

  • There's all kinds of things hanging back there.

  • It's like you're a crafts person, like you could make

  • all kinds of things back there.

  • What are those things hanging up?

  • Well, those are-- well the paint,

  • that's the paintings I did with my daughter

  • when she was really young.

  • So there's a lot of paintings and art books.

  • And then, the things hanging are probably things from movies,

  • I got some souvenirs.

  • I don't know I'm supposed to show it on TV, but maybe.

  • Are they boobies?

  • You know, that's from Game of Thrones.

  • I'm sure you all remember that.

  • Sure, yeah.

  • Is that a knife?

  • Are you wearing a knife on your belt right now?

  • No, no, no, no.

  • It's just a holster.

  • I took the knife out because you're not supposed

  • to have knives on show.

  • You just have a holster for a knife

  • just in case you want to walk around at night?

  • I took it out because I was playing with the babies

  • so I have it on my pants.

  • We just finished rock climbing.

  • [LAUGHS]

  • I'm going to start carrying a knife.

  • Yeah, Andy, you should not carry a knife.

  • You can barely hold a pen.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • So Jason, how old are your kids?

  • They're what, 12?

  • How old are they?

  • 11 and 12.

  • Yeah, Lola's 12, Wolf's 11.

  • How are they dealing with this?

  • I know you said there's a lot of stuff for them to do there.

  • But so many kids are missing their friends.

  • How are they doing?

  • The kids are doing really well.

  • You know, everyone's kind of in virtual school.

  • My son Wolf was already being homeschooled anyway

  • so it was easy for him.

  • And then, they have time to check in with their friends.

  • But I think they're really loving it.

  • They're loving having been home and we're having a great time.

  • And we're just getting around like everybody else is.

  • But thank God they have their teachers-- and much respect--

  • because it's kind of [WHISTLES] for me.

  • They don't go to me for any--

  • I'm like the PE coach, you know what I mean?

  • Like, get your ass outside want to go rock climb, skateboard?

  • But that's about it.

  • Well, they need PE, so at least they have you for that.

  • So let's look at this meme that's

  • going around with reminding people to wash their hands.

  • You've seen this, I assume.

  • Yes, yes.

  • I never thought I would be the candidate to promoting

  • washing themselves.

  • But I'm pretty stoked about that.

  • So I'm glad how it worked out.

  • Well, it's pretty much a compliment, yeah, for people

  • to wash their hands like they're washing you.

  • Very good physique.

  • Yeah, he does.

  • He has a very good physique, Andy.

  • And yet, I've heard that you don't like to work out.

  • No, no, no.

  • Shame.

  • I mean, I like doing the things I love to do.

  • But I mean, right now I've been doing

  • a lot of just taking it easy on the eating

  • because I'm a big fan of food.

  • And I can't really get all the things

  • I like so I've just been walking around my bike

  • and just trying to thin out a little bit.

  • I've been getting a little heavy.

  • Really?

  • Andy, do you have any exercises for him to do?

  • Yeah.

  • I like a good, slow walk.

  • And sometimes I'll put on two-pound wrist weights

  • to just add a little weight.

  • It's a good workout.

  • OK Jason, that should do it.

  • Two-pound weights on the hands, I got it.

  • I'm going to do that.

  • Thank you, Andy.

  • They get heavy after a few minutes.

  • It gets heavy, you'd be surprised.

  • Yeah, I think he would be surprised.

  • All right, so let's talk about the last time

  • you were on the show.

  • You were Elvis.

  • It was Halloween, we should explain that.

  • You didn't just come as Elvis.

  • And you were so fantastic and you got so into it.

  • And you looked so good.

  • And then I heard that you left, and Clint Eastwood's office

  • is right next to our studio, and you

  • ran into Clint Eastwood dressed as Elvis.

  • Yeah, and I freaked out and I ran over to him.

  • And then I was yelling at my kids to come over.

  • They have no idea who Clint Eastwood is.

  • But I was just totally like, get over here, get over.

  • And they're just like, I don't know who this old man is.

  • And I just was really, really happy

  • coming down off of being on your show.

  • And I probably looked like a psycho.

  • But he was-- it could have went bad.

  • He was really, really kind and he let us take a family photo.

  • And Clint was-- he's everything I wanted him to be.

  • So I can't help but to fanboy.

  • But it's Clint Eastwood.

  • Yeah, he's a great guy.

  • He's going to put you in a movie.

  • That's what I'm assuming-- that just running into him

  • would give him an idea to put you in a movie.

  • Hope, hope, you know I mean?

  • Yeah.

  • Although, I think you should do-- the next thing you should

  • do is a comedy because I don't think people

  • got to see that you're funny.

  • And then with the Super Bowl commercial that you did,

  • you got to show your humor.

  • Yeah.

  • We both got to be in the Super Bowl with both of our partners,

  • too.

  • Yes, exactly.

  • That was very cool.

  • And another cool thing that you're in,

  • Ozzy Osbourne's newest music video.

  • And I know that you're a huge fan.

  • Massive, massive Black Sabbath fan.

  • So I got that.

  • It's pretty cool because I was supposed to--

  • I wanted to go to their last concert in Birmingham

  • and I had tickets.

  • And a friend got me hooked up through Sharon.

  • And then, our dog passed and I flew home from London

  • and I missed their last Sabbath show.

  • Obviously, I wanted to be there for my family.

  • And then-- it's just a bummer.

  • And then, they gave me a call and she just

  • remembered that I was a big fan.

  • Sharon called me and asked if I would help out Ozzy and do,

  • like, a little promo.

  • And I was just like, are you kidding me?

  • To be-- I never would ever dream that up.

  • So I was like, hell yeah.

  • I'll do whatever you want, Ozzy.

  • It was very fun.

  • Very cool.

  • What was the last Black Sabbath--

  • I know you were a big Black Sabbath concert goer--

  • when was the last time you saw them live?

  • The last live tour?

  • Yeah, with Ozzy.

  • What was the name of the last tour, Jason?

  • I don't know, but it was about two years ago.

  • It was about two years ago, I think.

  • Yeah, that was two years ago, Andy.

  • I forget the name of it also.

  • I just remember because you had the black nail polish.

  • Right, right, exactly.

  • All right, we're going to take a quick break.

  • And then, we're going to come back

  • and we're going to talk a little bit more

  • with Jason and about his water, which I'm very excited about.

  • And everyone else should be, too.

  • We'll be right back.

  • You have a new movie coming out this year called Dune.

  • Which, first of all, tell me about it.

  • But I hear that it was shot in Jordan in a very cool location.

  • Yeah, we got to shoot in Wadi Rum, which was--

  • I've never seen anything like it.

  • It was like shooting on another planet.

  • And Denis Villeneuve is shooting it who did Sicario and Arrival.

  • It was an honor to do that with him.

  • And it's a pretty stellar cast.

  • I've never been a part of something so big.

  • You know, there is a book by Frank Herbert that did it.

  • Dune was made, I want to say, maybe in the '80s.

  • And it's a retelling of that.

  • And I get to play this character named Duncan Idaho, who's

  • kind of a master swordsman, who's

  • made a right-hand man to Duke Leto, who is Oscar Isaac.

  • And he's kind of a very--

  • he's the first person to land and who's

  • sent out to land on Dune.

  • And that's when I meet the character

  • that Javier Bardem plays.

  • Which, I can't believe I had a scene with Javier Bardem.

  • And then, it's him and Timothée Chalamet,

  • Josh Brolin and Rebecca Ferguson,

  • and Stellan Skarsgard.

  • It's a pretty massive film and I got to be this little--

  • he's kind of the Han Solo-esque of the group.

  • He's kind of the rogue warrior who protects Timothée Chalamet,

  • and he serves Oscar Isaac.

  • What a great cast.

  • Oh my God.

  • Everybody-- unbelievable.

  • And that comes out in December, right?

  • Yeah, comes out in December.

  • I've never got to work with that kind of talent before,

  • so it was pretty scary.

  • I was a little on my first day of work.

  • I'm not usually hired to be the guy that

  • does all the exposition and does all the sci-fi jargon,
