  • PIECE WHICH IS A SMALL CHRISTMAS TREE -- LIKE THIS, LIKE A REAL

  • COMPACT CHRISTMAS TREE, AND SHE HAS PUT REALLY INTERESTING

  • ORNAMENTATION ON THE TREE.

  • SO -- >> James: IN WHAT WAY?

  • HOW'S IT INTERESTING?

  • >> IT'S INTERESTING BECAUSE, FIRST OF ALL, IT'S LIKE A

  • HYBRID -- IT'S A HOLIDAY TREE.

  • IT'S LIKE A HANUKKAH BUSH.

  • >> James: SURE.

  • BUT IT HAS A COUPLE OF REALLY NEAT THEMES.

  • WE HAVE A TOILET PAPER ORNAMENT, WE HAVE A TAKEOUT FOOD ORNAMENT,

  • WE HAVE A MASK -- LIKE LITERALLY ONE OF OUR MEDICAL MASKS.

  • IT HAS COVID.

  • BUT WE ALSO HAVE SHELLS AND ANGEL FISH ORNAMENTS.

  • SO WE'RE GOING FOR A NAUTICAL COVID HOLIDAY THEME AND IT'S

  • WORKING.

  • >> James: SO RATHER THAT BE A CHRISTMAS TREE IT'S A HOLIDAY

  • BUSH.

  • >> IT'S A HANUKKAH BUSH WITH HOLIDAY OVERTONES, BUT THEN ALSO

  • WE HAVE A BLEACH ORNAMENT.

  • IT'S A VERY UNIQUE -- I LIKE THE WAY -- THE DIRECTION SHE'S

  • CHOSEN THIS YEAR.

  • >> James: I LIKE THE WORD BUSH.

  • I DO THINK BUSH IS A FANTASTIC WORD.

  • DON'T YOU?

  • >> IT IS.

  • BUSH.

  • >> James: BUSH.

  • A MIGHTY BUSH.

  • >> IT'S LIKE THE WORD SMOOSH.

  • >> James: SMOOSH.

  • I LIKE THAT WORD, SMOOSH.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) KEEGAN, YOU ARE THE STAR OF NOT

  • ONE BUT TWO MUSICALS ON NETFLIX RIGHT NOW AND YOU ARE MAKING --

  • YOU CURRENTLY HAVE JUST WRAPPED MAKING ANOTHER MUSICAL FOR APPLE

  • TV THAT WILL BE OUT NEXT YEAR.

  • WAS THIS PART OF THE PLAN, YOU BEING THE SONG AND DANCE MAN IN

  • THE STAR OF MUSICALS?

  • DID YOU HAVE THIS CAREER PATH PLANNED?

  • >> THIS WAS NOT PART OF THE PLAN AT ALL, JAMES.

  • IT WAS NOT PART OF THE PLAN AT ALL.

  • I THOUGHT, WHEN I -- IN HIGH SCHOOL, WHEN I WAS DOING

  • MUSICALS, I THOUGHT, THIS IS GREAT, THIS IS HOW YOU GET INTO

  • ACTING, BUT I ALWAYS JUST WANTED TO GET INTO THE CHARACTER PART,

  • THAT'S WHAT I ALWAYS WANTED TO DO.

  • SO BUT WHAT IS THE SECOND GAMBLER ON THE LEFT IN GUYS AND

  • DOLLS THINKING, THOUGH?

  • WHAT'S HIS MOTIVATION?

  • I WAS ALMOST IMMEDIATELY GOING TO GO IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION

  • AND SO THE FACT IT'S COME FULL CIRCLE LIKE THIS IS FANTASTIC.

  • IT'S FUN.

  • >> Announcer: MUSIC HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PART OF YOUR LIFE.

  • I DIDN'T KNOW THIS BUT YOU WERE A LEAD SINGER IN A BAND IN

  • COLLEGE AND YOU WERE CALLED FREE LOVE LEMONADE WHICH I THINK IS A

  • GREAT NAME BUT THEN YOU CHANGED THE NAME TO BE -- WHAT WAS THE

  • NAME OF THE SECOND BAND?

  • >> THE SECOND INCARNATION OF OUR BAND WAS TRIP MASTER MONKEY.

  • TRIP MASTER MONKEY.

  • >> James: THESE ARE INTERESTING CHOICES AND TALK ME

  • THROUGH THE CHOICES BEHIND FREE LEMONADE AND MASTER MONKEY.

  • >> THE CO-SINGER AND I SANG TOGETHER, DID THE HARMONIES,

  • WITH AND I WAS THE FRONT MAN AND HE WAS THE ROCK AND ROLL

  • GUITARS.

  • THEY WERE HIS IDEAS.

  • IT WAS INTERESTING BECAUSE IT CLEARLY FELT LIKET IT TOOK A

  • GOOD WEEK OR SO TO COME UP WITH THE NAMES.

  • ONE DAY WE CAME INTO THE ROOM, SO WE HAVE A SHOW IN THE COFFEE

  • HOUSE TOMORROW.

  • WE'RE CALLED FREE LOVE LEMONADE.

  • OH, YOU'VE REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT THIS, MIKE.

  • >> James: YEAH.

  • AND WE FINISHED MAKING AN INDEPENDENT FILM IN DETROIT AND

  • WE WERE HAVING A RAP PARTY AND WE WERE GOING TO PERFORM AT THE

  • RAP PARTY, AND WE GOT TOGETHER TO PRACTICE AND MIKE GOES, BY

  • THE WAY, WE HAVE TO CHANGE THE NAME.

  • THE NAME THE TRIP MASTER MONKEY.

  • WE'VE GOT TO HAVE A NEW NAME.

  • MIKE, APPARENTLY, YOU'RE IN CHARGE OF NAMING THE BAND, SO

  • WHATEVER YOU SAY GOES.

  • >> James: WELL, MIKE SOUNDS LIKE HE'S QUITE THE TASK MASTER

  • ON ALL OF THIS.

  • LOOK AT THIS, KEEGAN, THIS IS YOUR COLLEGE PORTRAIT.

  • I MEAN, I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS STUD DIDN'T MAKE IT AS A ROCK

  • STAR!

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> THAT IS MY POST-PURPLE RAIN

  • PHASE LOOK.

  • >> James: OKAY.

  • THAT'S LIKE A HAIRCUT FOR ME, JAMES.

  • I USED TO HAVE LIKE THE KIND OF CURLY -- I HAD THE ELDEBARGE

  • PURPLE RAIN HERE FOR A LONG TIME AND THIS IS THE TAMER VERSION OF

  • THAT IF YOU CAN BELIEVE IT.

  • >> James: WHAT A HANDSOME DEVIL.

  • LET'S TALK ABOUT THE PROM.

  • YOU ARE SO FANTASTIC IN THE FILM.

  • YOU GROUND THE ENTIRE THING AS THE PRINCIPAL.

  • FOR ANYONE WHO HASN'T CAUGHT IT, TELL EVERYBODY WHO YOU PLAY IN

  • THE FILM.

  • >> I PLAY PRINCIPAL TOMAHAWKENS AND HE'S THE PRINCIPAL OF THE

  • SCHOOL WHERE THE YOUNG LADY WANTS TO GO TO PROM WITH THEIR

  • GIRLFRIEND AND THE P.T.A. SHUT IT DOWN.

  • HE'S A VERY, VERY, VERY FAIR-MINDED INDIVIDUAL, BUT HE

  • ALSO IS THE FULCRUM, KIND OF THE MOST GROUNDED CHARACTER IN THE

  • PIECE.

  • THESE TWO FACTIONS OF PEOPLE WERE BOTH REALLY PASSIONATE,

  • QUITE CRAZY AND CRAZED, AND EMOTIONS AND TENSIONS WERE HIGH

  • THROUGH THE WHOLE MOVIE, AND HE'S THE ONE PERSON, HE'S KIND

  • OF LIKE THE MIDDLE PIECE OF THE TEETER-TOTTER OF THE SEESAW.

  • THERE'S TWO CRAZY FACTIONS AND HE'S LIKE, EVERYBODY, TAKE IT

  • EASY, EVERYBODY RELAX.

  • LET'S LET COOLER HEADS PREVAIL, LET'S TALK ABOUT FACTS.

  • AND HE'S -- HE'S KIND OF -- HE'S THE EYE OF THE STORM, EVERYBODY

  • ELSE IS KIND OF GOING NUTS AND HE'S THE EYE OF THE STORM.

  • AND HE ALSO REALLY IS A CHAMPION FOR THE CHARACTER OF EMMA, WHO

  • IS THE YOUNG GIRL WHO'S GOING THROUGH ALL OF THIS.

  • >> James: AND ON TOP OF ALL THAT, YOU PLAY MERYL STREEP'S

  • LOVE INTEREST, AND MERLE SAID IN AN INTERVIEW THAT SHE FELL IN

  • LOVE WITH YOU WHILE YOU MADE THE FILM.

  • I MEAN, DID YOU FEEL DAUNTED?

  • BECAUSE I THINK ANY ACTOR FEELS DAUNTED WHEN YOU WALK INTO A

  • ROOM WITH MERYL STREEP, BUT PLAYING HER LOVE INTEREST IS SO

  • MUCH MORE INTIMATE.

  • HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN YOU CAME IN ON THOSE FIRST DAYS?

  • >> WELL, IT'S FUNNY.

  • IT'S INTERESTING.

  • I HAVE TO SAY THIS, WHEN I STARTED REHEARSING WITH HER, I

  • HAD AN IDEA OF WHAT I WANTED TO DO WITH THIS CHARACTER, AND

  • OSTENSIBLY, TO BE QUITE HONEST, MY CHARACTER, I'M DOING AN

  • IMPERSONATION OF EL.

  • IT'S FUNNY.

  • SO MERYL IS ACTUALLY FALLING A LITTLE BIT IN LOVE WITH EL

  • BECAUSE I'M EMULATING MY WIFE IN THE WHOLE MOVIE.

  • SO THE BEGINNING WAS GREAT.

  • IT JUST FELT LIKE RIDING A BIKE BECAUSE WHAT YOU END UP DOING IS

  • THE TWO ACTORS COME TOGETHER AND YOU START WORKING ON THE SCENE

  • AND TRYING TO MAKE IT CLEAR AND TRYING TO MAKE IT DRAMATIC, AND

  • TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE BEST WAY TO CONVEY WHAT YOU WANT TO

  • THE AUDIENCE AND ALL OF A SUDDEN SHE'S NOT MERYL STREEP ANYMORE,

  • SHE'S JUST A REALLY FANTASTIC ACTING PARTNER AND THAT'S KUDOS

  • TO HER BECAUSE SHE MAKES AN EFFORT TO MAKE YOU FEEL

  • COMFORTABLE.

  • SHE WANTS YOU TO OPEN UP AND BE AS BRAVE AND FEARLESS AS YOU

  • CAN.

  • >> James: YOU'RE SO BRAVE IN THE FILM.
