  • HEY EVERYBODY!

  • WE'RE BACK HERE WITH WHOOPI GOLDBERG.

  • I WANT TO TALK ABOUT YOUR NEW SERIES ON CBS ALL ACCESS, AND

  • NOT JUST BECAUSE I'M A COMPANY MAN-- THOUGH I AM.

  • I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT "THE STAND."

  • THIS IS GOING TO BE MY JAM OVER THE CHRISTMAS BREAK.

  • IT'S BASED ON STEPHEN KING.

  • HE'S ACTUALLY WRITING THE FINAL EPISODE HIMSELF.

  • AND YOU WANTED TO BE IN THIS SINCE THE FIRST ADAPTATION SINCE

  • 1994.

  • WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT THIS STORY?

  • >> WELL, YOU KNOW, IN A LOT OF KING'S WORK, YOU DON'T FIND A

  • LOT OF PEOPLE OF COLOR.

  • AND SO, IN READING "THE STAND," WITHIN ONE OF THE PIVOTAL

  • FIGURES IS MOTHER ABIGAIL, AND SHE'S 108, AND I ALWAYS THOUGHT

  • WELL, YEAH.

  • WHY NOT-- WHY NOT ME?

  • AND THEN I COULDN'T DO IT, YOU KNOW.

  • AND I THOUGHT WELL, YOU KNOW, IT'S BEEN DONE.

  • IT WAS DONE BRILLIANTLY, AND IT'S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN

  • AGAIN.

  • AND I FORGOT ABOUT IT.

  • ASK THEN I GOT A CALL FROM A FRIEND OF MINE, JOSH BOONS, AND

  • HE SAID, "I'M DOING 'THE STAND'."

  • AND I SAID, "DO YOU THINK MAYBE I COULD COME AUDITION?"

  • AND HE SAID, "NO, I'M ASKING YOU TO BE IN IT, IT'S A DONE DEAL."

  • RUBY DEE, WHO DID THE ORIGINAL MOTHER ABIGAIL WAS THE SAME AGE

  • I AM NOW WHEN SHE DID MOTHER ABIGAIL, WHICH IS FANTASTIC.

  • OF COURSE, IT'S 20, 30, 40 YEARS SINCE THE BOOK WAS WRITTEN.

  • AND QUITE A BIT OF TIME SINCE THEY DID THE ORIGINAL

  • MINI-SERIES.

  • SO, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE TO BRING HER IN, TOO-- AND BRING ALL OF

  • THESE CHARACTERS-- INTO 2020 MINDSET.

  • AND THEN OF COURSE, THERE IS THAT THING THAT HAPPENED.

  • >> Stephen: WE HAVE-- WE HAVE A CLIP HERE OF MOTHER ABIGAIL

  • BEFORE WE GO TO HER, WHO IS SHE?

  • >> SHE IS THE OTHER SIDE OF DARK, YOU KNOW.

  • SHE'S THE LIGHT.

  • AND SHE'S BEEN GIVEN THIS THING TO FIND ALL THESE PEOPLE AND

  • WALK INTO THEIR DREAMS AND SAY, "COME AND FIND ME.

  • THIS IS WHERE I AM."

  • SO ALL OF THESE PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE COUNTRY START HEADING

  • TOWARDS HER, WHERE SHE SAID SHE IS, TO FIND OUT WHY THEY WERE

  • CHOSEN, WHY SHE'S COMING INTO THEIR DREAMS.

  • SO THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE SEEING, I THINK.

  • AND IT'S JESS YOUNG AND I, I THINK, IN THE SCENE.

  • >> Stephen: JIM.

  • >> >> HELLO, FRANNIE.

  • MY NAME IS ABIGAIL FREEMANTEL.

  • YOU COME SEE ME AT HEMMING FOOT HOME, COLORADO.

  • CAN YOU REMEMBER THAT FOR ME?

  • >> Stephen: I'M HOOKED.

  • I'M IN.

  • >> IT'S REALLY-- I MEAN, I HAVE TO SAY, YOU KNOW, THERE'S

  • SOMETHING ABOUT THIS STORY.

  • AND THEN, OF COURSE, ALL THAT'S GOING ON WITH US.

  • HOPEFULLY, WE DON'T DISCOVER YOU KNOW IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS IT'S A

  • FIGHT BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL AND GOD AND THE DEVIL AND ALL THAT

  • KIND OF STUFF.

  • BUT THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT IT THAT KIND OF JUST FEELS LIKE YOU

  • MIGHT BE DRAWN TO IT, THAT PEOPLE MIGHT BE DRAWN TO IT.

  • SO I'M EXCITED.

  • >> Stephen: >> Stephen: "THE STAND"

  • PREMIERES THIS THURSDAY ON CBS ALL ACCESS, AND YOU CAN FIND HER

  • CHRISTMAS COLLECTION IN NORDSTROM NOW.

  • WHOOPI GOLDBERG, EVERYBODY!

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

  • THANKS, WHOOPI.
