  • -My next guest is a two-time Golden Globe-winning actor.

  • He is the star and executive producer

  • of the critically acclaimed show "Black Monday,"

  • which is streaming now on Showtime

  • and all Showtime partner platforms.

  • Here is Don Cheadle.

  • Don, thank you so much for doing this.

  • Thank you for being here.

  • I -- -Thank you.

  • -I, of course, we're going to --

  • I want to talk about "Black Monday" and your show,

  • but I realize you could have easily bailed on this,

  • and it means a lot to me

  • that, like, you showed up and that you're doing this.

  • Thank you very much for being here.

  • I appreciate it. -Glad to be here, man.

  • Glad -- Glad to see you. Glad you're looking good.

  • Glad that anybody's looking good.

  • And, you know, what's happening right now, it's unbelievable.

  • -Yeah, it's a pretty wild day for our country.

  • How are you digesting

  • what's been happening today at our nation's Capitol?

  • -Um, I was going to start to digest it with vodka,

  • but I decided to just, like, take it straight.

  • -Yeah. -No vodka chaser.

  • It's incredible.

  • You know, it's incredible.

  • We're watching, unfortunately, an historical event

  • that could have been predicted, I believe,

  • and we're watching it happening in real time.

  • And I'm glad I'm with my family

  • and we're all sort of, you know, processing this together,

  • but it's incredible.

  • -It was -- It was scary for me.

  • It was -- It was bizarre. It was frightening.

  • -Yeah. -I'd never seen --

  • I can't believe that --

  • how anyone could get into the Capitol.

  • Like, there's tougher security getting into 30 Rock.

  • -Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely.

  • -The Capitol -- -Yeah.

  • -How is that possible?

  • And I'm just watching it like it's a horror movie

  • going -- or like I'm watching security footage

  • of my house being broken into or something.

  • -Yeah. Exactly. I mean, I had the same reaction.

  • Very different reaction than --

  • you know, there's a lot of stuff online

  • and people really kind of posting a lot of pictures

  • about, you know, the difference

  • when the Black Lives Matter protest was there

  • and the sort of police presence that was there

  • and sort of protection that was there for that area,

  • as opposed to what's happening now,

  • especially when this is something

  • that could have been predicted

  • and was not something that came out of the blue.

  • This was foreseen. It was projected.

  • The president asked for it specifically,

  • for his protesters to show up and disrupt on this day.

  • So to be caught unawares or on your back foot

  • is very curious, to say the least.

  • -You've actually changed your Twitter bio,

  • your name in your Twitter bio.

  • It now says "Don 'bruh, you lost' Cheadle."

  • Last time we talked, we were talking about voter suppression

  • and voter fraud in the presidential election.

  • Did you ever think we'd be seeing the president

  • denying the outcome of the election the way he has?

  • -Yes.

  • [ Laughs ]

  • 100%. -Yeah.

  • -He was denying it before it started.

  • -Yeah. -He said, I believe,

  • "If I lose, it will have been rigged."

  • So there's no -- That's what I'm saying.

  • I'm surprised that people are surprised in some ways,

  • because this was not something

  • that wasn't foreshadowed by the president already.

  • He spoke about how he would react to this.

  • And he's been consistent throughout.

  • This behavior's been consistent.

  • So in some ways, this is just sort of a culmination

  • of sort of the behavior and the attitude

  • that's been happening for the last four years.

  • This -- There was never any question

  • that he was going to contest the results, unless he won.

  • And then everything was going to be perfect.

  • -Did you see -- Did you see Biden speak?

  • -I did. I did.

  • I -- I was glad,

  • and I was heartened by the forcefulness of his words.

  • I'm glad that he came out at this time when he did.

  • He said he was going to talk about the economy first.

  • I'm glad that that's not what was on the table.

  • You know, this idea, though, that, "This isn't us,"

  • is, you know, something that I know why people say it,

  • and I know where that sentiment comes from,

  • but let's be real. This is us.

  • This is -- This is America.

  • This is in many ways, again, a consistent through line

  • from what we have seen, and it reaches a tipping point,

  • and these are the things that happen.

  • We're always in this process, right,

  • where we'll, you know, get three steps forward and two steps back

  • or one foot forward and one foot back.

  • You know, this is the dance that we have to do in this country

  • when we have been unable to deal with what we've dealt with

  • historically with injustice

  • and all the things that we're seeing come into play now.

  • This is -- This is the outcome.

  • This is what happens when that, you know, boil is lanced.

  • -You've spent time with President-Elect Biden.

  • You -- Are you hopeful that when he takes office

  • this country can come together?

  • Can we figure this out?

  • -I think it's not going to happen on its own.

  • I am hopeful that we have, I believe, better leadership

  • at the helm. I think that we're going to have people

  • who are more willing to -- to broker

  • and more willing than, obviously, Mitch McConnell was

  • to attempt to work within the body politic

  • and find ways to move things forward

  • and not just pick favorites and fight.

  • It remains to be seen, but I don't think it's something

  • that we, you, me, all of us citizens of this country,

  • are going to be able to just wipe our hands

  • and go, okay, we did that, it's over.

  • I think we're have to even put our nose to the grindstone

  • even harder, and we're going to have to require

  • that our leadership, this new leadership, really step up

  • and deal with the inequities that we've had

  • and that we've seen and that continue to come to fruition.

  • We really got to get down into the weeds

  • to really make any kind of substantive change.

  • -I want to talk about "Black Monday,"

  • because I love it. I loved it.

  • The first two seasons are streaming now on Showtime.

  • I love --

  • Your character is amazing. Mo.

  • But for anyone who hasn't seen it

  • and looking for a great show to binge,

  • I would watch this show, "Black Monday."

  • Can you set it up?

  • Set up the show and who you play on the show.

  • -Well, I play Mo Monroe, who is the head of this trading firm...

  • -Such a good name. -...on Wall Street -- Right?

  • Mo Monroe. It's the best.

  • -Mo Monroe is the best

  • and how you dress and everything and the hair,

  • it's just --

  • -No, it's over the top.

  • And it's a for-real sitcom on cable

  • which is, you know, kind of rare.

  • There's not many of those.

  • And I think David Nevins, who's head of Showtime at the time

  • and since moved up, was saying that he really loves the show

  • and it's one of those kinds of shows

  • that if you don't like the joke that just happened,

  • just hang on another second. There's going to be another one

  • coming right behind it. -Absolutely, yeah.

  • -Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • -Also, the wardrobe team nails it, by the way.

  • -It's beautiful.

  • -We have photos. We have some stills of you from the show.

  • Come on, now. Come on, now.

  • It's just so great. I love it.

  • Was -- Was real Don Cheadle dressed like this in the '80s?

  • -No, but please don't pull up any --

  • 'Cause I've been on the show before,

  • and you've asked the question,

  • and then you've been like, "Oh, really?"

  • So -- -No, I'm not doing it tonight.

  • I swear I'm not doing it tonight.

  • -So, then, no, I can deny it because there's no evidence.

  • So, no. -Alright, good.

  • I'll save it for next time. Come on.

  • The show's already been renewed for Season 3.

  • Congrats on that, buddy.

  • So well done. I want to show everyone a clip.

  • Here's Don Cheadle in Season 2 of "Black Monday."

  • Take a look at this.

  • -Suspect is not something you negotiate with.

  • A suspect is El Loco.

  • -Oh, no, no, I think El Loco deals out of El Segundo.

  • Not to be confused with El Diablo from El Salvador.

  • Now, the real "L" you got to worry about, whew, Ron Hubbard.

  • 'Cause that -- -Are you [bleep]

  • going on a pun run right now?

  • Okay, El Sastre is loco. Okay?

  • Crazy. He's a [bleep] psycho.

  • -Oh, really? Sounds like a [bleep] [bleep]

  • You know that "sastre" means "tailor" in Spanish?

  • -Yeah, 'cause he invented the Colombian necktie.

  • -So what? Diane von Furstenberg invented the rat dress,

  • and she's got bird bones disease.

  • You snap her neck like that.

  • -Colombian necktie is when they slit your throat,

  • and they pull your tongue through the hole.

  • -Oh [bleep] -Yeah.

  • He also invented the Colombian bow tie,

  • the Colombian "cumberbund." -I think it's cummerbund.

  • -And something called the Colombian Daisy Dukes,

  • which I think is scrotum-related.

  • -Oh. -Don Cheadle, everybody.

  • "Black Monday" Seasons 1 and 2 are streaming now on Showtime.

  • You seriously are the best.

  • Thank you for showing up and being here tonight.

  • -Thank you. Love you, Jimmy.

  • Anytime, bud. -Love you, too, bud.

-My next guest is a two-time Golden Globe-winning actor.
