  • Please welcome Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • (SINGING) The boys are back in town.

  • I said, the boys are back in town.

  • The boys are back in town.

  • The boys are back in town.

  • The boys are back in town.

  • You haven't seen them in a little while.

  • I haven't seen them in about--

  • Well, I haven't seen this in a while.

  • And I've seen that one in about 20 hours ago.

  • That would be about right.

  • We went to-- we were at the premiere of-- the kind

  • of launch of--

  • I was there.

  • Oh, that's right.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • I'm in it too, you know?

  • You are indeed.

  • Well, I've seen you both relatively recently

  • in Washington DC.

  • This is true.

  • Yeah, you both got arrested.

  • You both engaged in civil disobedience,

  • and I'm so grateful.

  • I'm so grateful.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • It was your first time right, Sam?

  • Yes, indeed.

  • And Martin only got arrested once.

  • I got arrested twice.

  • Yeah, right, it's all your fault.

  • He's been arrested about 70 times.

  • 4 million times, other places.

  • Just tell me what your family said about you being arrested.

  • I mean, how did they react?

  • They liked it very much.

  • They were very proud of their grandfather.

  • Well, then, why didn't you do it sooner?

  • Sam is a self-described moderate, right?

  • This is true.

  • Yes, and he'd never been arrested,

  • never engaged in civil disobedience.

  • And he did it.

  • And then I heard from him two weeks later.

  • And he-- tell us what'd you do up in the Yale-Harvard game.

  • Yeah, the Harvard-Yale students were

  • trying to get their respective universities

  • to divest from fossil fuels.

  • And they've been trying all kinds of things.

  • They sat in front of the investment office and all

  • that stuff.

  • And then they decided that they would--

  • Can I interject a thought?

  • Martin, next time a different hat.

  • Oh, that is me.

  • Yeah, yeah, I thought that was Bernie Sanders.

  • I want to hear the rest of your story.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • And so you got arrested again?

  • So at the Harvard-Yale game during halftime,

  • we all ran out on the field and got arrested again.

  • Good for you.

  • That's great.

  • Oh, God.

  • And it was usually inspiring in the same way

  • I bet it was true for you that all these young people and all

  • this young energy, and all these people that really get it,

  • doing something about it, immediate about it.

  • And it was just great.

  • And we were sitting there in the field

  • waiting for the authorities to decide what to do with us.

  • And people came pouring out of the stands.

  • About three times as many people as were

  • participating in the protest came out of the stands.

  • It was absolutely inspiring.

  • Wow.

  • That's so great.

  • And how many times have you been engaged in civil disobedience

  • and missed arrest?

  • About 68, yeah, I think.

  • Yeah, wow.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • Oh, there's one.

  • I heard it was 70.

  • What happened to the other two?

  • I exaggerated.

  • So before you both became incredible actors, what work

  • did you do?

  • How did you support yourselves?

  • Oh gosh, I did everything possible without skill.

  • I sold Christmas trees.

  • I caddied.

  • That was a very skilled job.

  • Actually, I became a professional caddy.

  • I caddied from the time I was nine years old until I

  • left home at the age of 18.

  • So yeah, I made a pretty fair living at that time as a caddy.

  • When I went to New York, I was a busboy, a soda jerk,

  • elevator operator, delivered newspapers and milk.

  • Whoa, look at that.

  • Yeah, I was working for the Forest Service there.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Wow.

  • We've dug up some old photos of you, too, Sam.

  • Yeah, they're as good as that?

  • That's not you.

  • Sam, we look so much alike.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • What did you do before-- oh my gosh, you look so good.

  • What did you do before--

  • I worked for the Macy's theater club,

  • which was a theater ticket, providing agency

  • that Macy's, the famous department store, had.

  • And the entire staff was out-of-work actors.

  • And we messed everything up.

  • We absolutely--

  • We sent people tickets for four different shows

  • on the same night.

  • They would complain to us.

  • And we would say, sorry, sorry, sorry.

  • And we would send them tickets for three other shows on it

  • the same night, some other night.

  • And then they would write back to us.

  • And then we would write facetious notes back to them.

  • And then they fired us all.

  • And we'll be back with more from Sam and Martin.

Please welcome Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen.
