  • How's it going?

  • I like my music.

  • What was that?

  • [CHUCKLES]

  • Did you like it, you didn't like it?

  • I liked it.

  • Yeah, it was good.

  • What music-- what did we just play for him?

  • What was that we were playing?

  • [INAUDIBLE]

  • Oh, yeah.

  • I couldn't hear what it was.

  • I know, I couldn't either.

  • Sometimes there's-- people are so excited to see you,

  • the music is wasted, because they're just playing it for you

  • to walk out, but we just hear screaming.

  • Yeah.

  • It's always good to have music and screaming

  • when you walk out.

  • Yeah.

  • You must get that a lot.

  • The last time you were here, it was before "Black Panther"

  • came out.

  • And it did OK, right?

  • People saw it.

  • A few people saw it in a few theaters.

  • Uh-huh Few awards, things like that.

  • Yeah, a little bit.

  • Just a little bit.

  • No, it just changed your life?

  • Yeah, it did.

  • It did.

  • I try to keep things the same, but in some places

  • you go, they recognize you a little bit.

  • Yeah.

  • I bet they recognize you a little bit.

  • But yeah, so congratulations on that, because it really

  • did well, and well-deserved.

  • It was a great movie, and you were great,

  • and I'm so glad that it got the recognition that it got.

  • Now, congratulations are in order for the sexiest--

  • you're in the sexiest--

  • I'm in there.

  • Yeah.

  • I just found out like 20 minutes ago.

  • I didn't know about this.

  • Wait until you see, OK?

  • You're in the issue.

  • Let's just take a look at the page, and let's find Chadwick.

  • Where am I?

  • Where am I in there?

  • [CHUCKLING]

  • Jesus.

  • [CHEERING]

  • Sexiest superhero.

  • Hey, I'm just glad to be in the number, you know what I mean?

  • So are you constantly having to stay

  • in shape because of these movies that you're doing?

  • Well, what I try to do is I try to change

  • for whatever the role is.

  • You can never really get out of shape

  • if you're playing a superhero, but you can change--

  • I've changed my size.

  • But you always still gotta be able to run five miles if you

  • need to, or whatever it is.

  • Yeah.

  • So you change your workout?

  • You change your workout, yeah.

  • What are you doing right now lately?

  • Mostly just cardio.

  • Mostly cardio, mostly just flexibility.

  • Yoga?

  • Yoga, yeah.

  • I think you have to change it according to, like--

  • for me right now, it's about flexibility.

  • You need that as you get older.

  • Not that you're getting older--

  • I am.

  • But I mean--

  • By the second.

  • Well, we all are, but that's the most important thing,

  • is to stretch and do things like that.

  • Are you working on a film right now or no?

  • I just finished not too long ago shooting

  • "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" with Viola Davis, Glynn Turman.

  • Denzel Washington is producing.

  • So it's part of the August Wilson series.

  • I'm really excited about that.

  • Very cool.

  • And then you also were working with Spike Lee.

  • Spike Lee, yeah.

  • And where was that?

  • We shot in Thailand.

  • Oh, Thailand.

  • Amazing, right?

  • Yeah, it was amazing.

  • Had you been there before?

  • First time.

  • It looks amazing.

  • First time.

  • We shot in Chiang Mai, so it was a hot, blistering, sweaty Spike

  • Lee experience, you know?

  • I'm from New Orleans.

  • Don't tell me about hot and sweaty.

  • All right, let's talk about "21 Bridges."

  • Tell everyone what it's about and why it's called that.

  • This movie-- this is a sort of a throwback

  • movie to some of the movies we would see in the '70s.

  • You see them in the '90s too.

  • '80s and '90s.

  • Eight cops are killed.

  • I'm called in as a NYPD detective to find the killers.

  • We shut down Manhattan to sort of trap the man.

  • And there's some twists and turns throughout that.

  • It keeps you on the edge of your seat.

  • I'm proud of this movie.

  • And so it's called "21 Bridges" because there are 21 bridges

  • that you had to shut--

  • Well, at first we thought it was called "17 Bridges."

  • [CHUCKLING]

  • I'm serious.

  • The name of the movie at first when I got it was "17 Bridges,"

  • and we were about to shoot the speech that you just saw.

  • And they were like, we're not sure if it's actually 17.

  • And I was like, well, how many is it?

  • I'm going to say this in like 20 minutes.

  • Right.

  • So it turns out it's 21.

  • Seems like it wouldn't be--

  • In and out of the city.

  • Yeah.

  • All you have to do is count.

  • I don't know why people didn't know how many bridges there

  • were.

  • And I pride myself on doing the research, and I was like, uh,

  • I thought y'all would've known this.

  • I didn't have to go back and research.

  • But you had to shoot-- the entire thing takes place in one

  • night, and it's all night shoots.

  • Yes, yes.

  • So that must really--

  • to adjust to just shooting at night.

  • I will never pick a script up again and not look and see

  • how many nights it is.

  • You have to measure it out, because we-- literally, it

  • took me, I would say maybe five months

  • to get back on a regular sleep schedule.

  • And my dad used to work the night shift,

  • so I never understood what he was going through.

  • He would do swing shift and a night shift.

  • But man, that takes a toll on you after a while,

  • so I have a whole new respect for my dad

  • after doing this movie.

  • And then now you won't do a night shoot movie again.

  • Never again.

  • All right.

  • We're going to take a break, and you've

  • worked with a lot of people.

  • We're going to play a game to find out

  • how well you know those people.

  • We'll be right back.

How's it going?
