  • -Every time you come here, I learn about another job

  • you had before you were an actor.

  • -Endless jobs. -Yeah, you did.

  • -I mean, because you were a tour guide.

  • -Yeah, well, essentially. -Kind of.

  • -Kind of. -The travel show.

  • -With the travel show. Yep, yep, yep.

  • -Then I found out you used to interview --

  • -I used to be on that end of the interview, sort of.

  • I used to go to red carpet events

  • and stand in line and wait for stars to come past

  • and kind of call their name and ask for interviews.

  • And, yeah. And then I made the switch

  • to sort of be on the red carpet on that side.

  • -Who was the biggest celebrity you interviewed?

  • Do you remember?

  • -I covered all of the "Harry Potter" stuff.

  • So, Daniel Radcliffe

  • when he was sort of, like, quite young at that time,

  • I used to sort of be infatuated with him.

  • And just, like, I remember just, like, shaking nervously,

  • just, like, sort of asking these questions

  • and waiting in those hot rooms

  • and sort of interviewing all of these amazing people.

  • -Did you ever think that you would be on the other side?

  • -Never. Never once did it cross my mind.

  • -Really? -But --

  • But you know what? It was a shift.

  • It sort of -- When the opportunities came,

  • when I switched from hairdresser to become a sort of presenter,

  • it was literally me focusing on that particular goal.

  • You know? It's almost --

  • We go around with blinkers on our eyes.

  • And we sort of focus in on one thing.

  • But something brighter and bigger and better

  • is just off to the side.

  • But we're like, "No, no, no. This is my path.

  • This is my path." So luckily, I was able to switch that.

  • -So what is your advice

  • to anyone who wants to switch careers?

  • -Just -- It could be simple

  • as just introducing yourself as who you want.

  • Instead of, "Hi. I'm Henry the hairdresser,"

  • "Hi. I'm Henry the presenter,"

  • or now, "Hi. I'm Henry the actor,"

  • which is amazing.

  • -Just say that.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • I like that. That was good. I like that.

  • -Not too bad. Not too bad.

  • -I mean, you've been crushing it,

  • I mean, crushing it in these movies.

  • First of all, I just want to say

  • that the first time you were on my show, I had a prediction.

  • Do you remember what I said to you?

  • -I think I do remember.

  • -I said that you should be the next James Bond.

  • -That was your prediction. That definitely was.

  • -And I mean it. I think you should be the next James --

  • -You think? -Yes.

  • -Oh, man. -And I'm not the only one

  • who's thinking this, because I just found out

  • in Vegas, you can bet on anything.

  • -Yeah, just about.

  • -There are odds. [ Laughter ]

  • There's 10-1 odds that you're going to be the next James Bond.

  • -Hey!

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -That's pretty good.

  • -That's good company. I'm not going to lie.

  • Richard Madden right there at the top.

  • -Yeah, Richard Madden.

  • Hiddleston, Fassbender,

  • Idris Elba.

  • Who would you bet on, if not yourself?

  • -So if I had my money and definitely not myself,

  • Idris Elba.

  • Who wants to see Idris kick some butt?

  • -No. -He's amazing.

  • -I want to see you do it. I think you would be fantastic.

  • -I mean, if you're a male movie star,

  • it is literally the most iconic role possible.

  • I mean, you'd be an absolute idiot

  • not to sort of think and sort of aspire for a role like that.

  • So --

  • -I mean -- -Who knows?

  • -But if you do get it,

  • maybe he has, like, a funny brother.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -A funny-looking brother?

  • -Yeah, kind of average-looking --

  • Average-looking brother who's funny, and he hangs out with him

  • -Like "Step Brothers" but with spies.

  • -Yes, exactly.

  • And I could help you out but, like, screw up things.

  • I'm not saying me, but I'm saying "I" in general.

  • -We'll pitch it to Barbara Broccoli.

  • -Yeah, hey, talk to the Broccoli family.

  • Exactly. You know exactly who.

-Every time you come here, I learn about another job
