  • >> Jon: IT'S A LIFE SAVER.

  • >> Stephen: IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO GET ME SOMETHING FOR

  • CHRISTMAS.

  • >> Jon: WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING TO GET?

  • >> Stephen: I DON'T THINK I COULD PULL OFF THAT COAT.

  • I DON'T THINK IT WOULD LOOK THE SAME ON ME.

  • >> Jon: I THINK YOU'RE RIGHT ABOUT THAT.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: I THINK I WOULD

  • LOOK LIKE AN EXTRA PUPPET.

  • >> Jon: YOU EVER WATCH THESE -- IT'S KIND OF LIKE THE

  • FABRIC THAT THE MUPPETS ARE MADE OUT OF.

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S WHAT I WAS THINKING.

  • I WOULD LOOK LIKE A BACKGROUND EXTRA IN AVENUE Q.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO PLAY FOR

  • TRANSITIONING TO MERYL STREEP?

  • >> Jon: OH, MARLE, LET'S SEE --

  • ♪ ♪

  • >> Stephen: LOVELY TO SEE YOU.

  • >> Stephen: I LIKE TO ASK ALL MY GUESTS GIVEN WHERE WE ARE

  • GIVEN THE COVID AND THE LOCKDOWNS, WHERE IN THE WORLD

  • ARE WE FINDING YOU?

  • ARE YOU HOME RIGHT NOW?

  • >> I'M AT HOME AND YOU CAN HEAR THE HEAT COMING ON.

  • IN THE BERKSHIRES.

  • I'M FILMING IN BOSTON, SO I'M COMMUTING.

  • BACK AND FORTH.

  • >> Stephen: AM I ALLOWED TO KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING IN THIS

  • FILM?

  • >> IT'S CALMED "DON'T LOOK UP" AND IT'S ABOUT A GLOBAL

  • CATASTROPHE, BUT IT'S SORT OF FUNNY, LIKE DR. STRANGE LOVE FOR

  • 2020, A GLOBAL WARMING METAPHOR FOR THAT.

  • IT'S A BIG STARRY CAST AND LOTS OF FUN PEOPLE.

  • >> Stephen: AND WHO DO YOU PLAY?

  • >> WELL, I PLAY PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

  • >> Stephen: OH, PERFECT.

  • PERFECT.

  • SO IN THE STRANGE LOVE MODEL, YOU ARE PRESIDENT MERCK MUFFLIN.

  • >> YES, INDEED (LAUGHING) EXCEPT I HAVE A CHIEF OF STAFF, WHO IS

  • MY SON, AND THAT'S JO JONAH HILL HAD OUR FIRST SCENE ON FRIDAY

  • AND I WAS SO BAD.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT?

  • WELL, I'VE BEEN IN THIS, YOU KNOW, QUARANTINE BECAUSE THEY

  • HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFUL, AND I'M TOTALLY ALONE, AND MY FIRST

  • SCENE WAS ENTERING A STADIUM FULL OF 20,000 PEOPLE AS THE

  • PRESIDENT, MY BIG FACE ON THE JumboTron IN FRONT OF ME,

  • AND I JUST, LIKE, COMPLETELY LOST IT, I COULDN'T REMEMBER

  • ANYTHING.

  • UH BUT I'M SURE IT WILL BE FINE IN THE EDIT.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, IT'S SO AMAZING.

  • THAT'S WHERE THE REAL MOVIEMAKING HAPPENS AND THE REAL

  • ACTING TAKES PLACE IS IN THE EDIT.

  • THEY SURE MADE ME LOOK BERT OVER THE YEARS.

  • WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO MAKE A MOVIE.

  • SHOULD BE NORMAL.

  • DOES IT FEEL NORMAL TO DO?

  • >> NO, NOT AT ALL.

  • THERE WEREN'T 20,000 PEOPLE.

  • I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY, BUT THEY'LL DUPLICATE THEM.

  • THERE WERE EXTRAS ALL AROUND THE STADIUM, LONELY PEOPLE SEPARATED

  • BY 20 FEET OF AIR WEARING MASKS AND VISORS THAT ARE CLEAR.

  • SO THEY'RE MEANT TO MAKE A BIG NOISE, BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE --

  • ( MUFFLED ) -- AND THE WHOLE THING IS SO

  • EERIE AND ODD AND DISCONCERTING, AND WE ALL HAVE, OF COURSE,

  • MASKS.

  • AT THE LAST MINUTE, YOU TAKE EVERYTHING OFF, AND THE L LIPSTI

  • IS ALL UP HERE.

  • >> Stephen: AND YOU HAVE THE NICE RING AND I SWEAT.

  • >> YOU HAVE THE NICE RING.

  • THE ILLUSION IS SO EASY TO MAINTAIN.

  • IT'S HILARIOUS.

  • THEY WERE ALL GREAT.

  • GOD, I HAVE TO PULL MYSELF TOGETHER FOR MONDAY.

  • >> Stephen: BUT THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, UIVED KIND ENOUGH TO

  • GIFT YOUR FANS WITH TWO MOVIES SHOT BEFORE COVID, SO WE WERE

  • ABLE TO SHOOT THIS WITHOUT ANY MASKS.

  • I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THEM.

  • BUT THE FIRST IS LET THEM ALL TALK, WHICH I WATCHED THIS

  • WEEKEND AND I REALLY ENJOYED.

  • IT'S A STEVEN SODERBERGH MOVIE WITH A GREAT CAST DIANE WIEST,

  • GERMAN CHAN, CANDICE BERGEN, LUCAS HEDGES.

  • THIS TAKES PLACE ON THE QUEEN MARY.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: IT MADE CRUISING LOOK ATTRACTIVE.

  • >> WELL, IT COULDN'T GET MUCH MORE ATTRACTIVE THAN ON THAT

  • PARTICULAR SHIP.

  • IT'S PRETTY SPECTACULAR.

  • BUT, YEAH, WE WENT -- I GUESS IT WAS LAST AUGUST.

  • I MEAN, BEFORE THE QUARANTINE, BEFORE THE COVID THING, AND WE

  • CROSSED FOR, I GUESS IT'S SEVEN OR EIGHT DAYS, AND MADE THE

  • WHOLE MOVIE PRETTY MUCH THEN.

  • THERE WERE TWO OR THREE SCENES IN ENGLAND ONCE WE LANDED, BUT

  • THE ADDED THING WAS THAT DEBRA ISENBERG, THE GREAT NOVELIST,

  • AND STEPHEN HAD OUTLINED AN IDEA.

  • AND EACH SCENE EACH DAY HAD THE OUTLINES OF AN IDEA BUT NO

  • SCRIPT.

  • SO WE MADE IT UP AS WE WENT ALONG.

  • >> Stephen: SO HOW WOULD THEY DO IT?

  • WOULD THEY HAND YOU YOUR INTENTION OR SOMETHING?

  • HOW DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING?

  • >> WELL, YOU HAVE WHERE YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO END UP, THE SORT OF

  • RESULT THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN AT THE END OF THE SCENE.

  • BUT HOW YOU GET THERE WAS JUST INDIVIDUALLY UP TO THE ACTORS

  • THAT WERE IN THE SCENE.

  • SO IT WAS REALLY FUN AND REALLY LIVELY, AND THEY'RE VERY BRIGHT,

  • INTERESTING, IMAGINATIVE PEOPLE TTHAT I WAS WORKING WITH.

  • IT WAS A KICK, BUT IT WAS TERRIFYING.

  • >> Stephen: I WAS WONDERING BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF

  • DIRECTORS AND ACTORS USING IMPROVISATION IN THE REHEARSAL

  • PROCESS TO FIND THE ROOTS OF INTENTION AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

  • BUT HAD YOU DONE A WHOLE MOVIE THAT WAS ESSENTIALLY IMPROVISED

  • LIKE THAT BEFORE?

  • >> NO, WHO HAS?

  • I CERTAINLY NEVER MADE A MOVIE IN EIGHT DAYS EITHER.

  • >> Stephen: AND CHRONOLOGICAL BECAUSE BASICALLY T WHAT'S

  • HAPPENING TO THE CHARACTERS IS BASICALLY IN THE ORDER IN WHICH

  • YOU SHOT IT?

  • >> YEAH, AND IT WAS OUR OWN CLOTHES.

  • I WOULD GET UP IN THE MORNING, PUT ON MY OWN CLOTHES, GO NEXT

  • DOOR AND HAVE THE BREAKFAST SCENE WITH LUCAS HEDGES, SORT OF

  • MY PAJAMAS AND A ROBE THAT I HAVE HERE AT HOME, AND WE'D HAVE

  • BREAKFAST AND WE WOULD JUST TALK ABOUT WHAT WE WERE SUPPOSED TO

  • TALK ABOUT IN A WAY, BUT WEEKEND VEER OFF, HE DIDN'T CARE.

  • THEN HE EDIT IT OVER LUNCH AND DINNER, AND WE WOULD BE

  • EXHAUSTED AND QUICKLY READ WHAT WE WERE SUPPOSED TO ACHIEVE THE

  • NEXT DAY, AND THEN GO TO BED RACKED WITH ANXIETY THAT WE

  • WOULDN'T COME UP WITH ANYTHING INTERESTING.

  • >> Stephen: DID HE EVER REJECT WHAT YOU'D CREATED AND GO, NO,

  • NO, NO, NO, YOU'VE GOT TO DO THAT DIFFERENTLY, THAT THE WHAT

  • YOUR CHARACTER WOULD SAY?

  • >> NO.

  • HE NEVER DID.

  • >> Stephen: WOW.

  • THAT'S GREAT.

  • >> IT'S ALL IN THE EDITING, BABE.

  • HE KNEW HE WAS GOING TO CUT IT OUT.

  • HE'S THINKING CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, YOU KNOW, I DON'T NEED

  • THAT.

  • >> Stephen: MERYL, WE HAVE TO TAKE A QUICK BREAK BUT STICK

  • AROUND, EVERYBODY.

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH MORE MERYL STREEP.
