  • -Our first guest is a Tony Award-winning actor

  • who now stars in "Penny Dreadful: City of Angels."

  • The one, the only Nathan Lane is back with us.

  • Hello, Nathan.

  • -Hello, Seth. How are you?

  • I hope you and your family are well and healthy.

  • And thank you for having me in your attic.

  • -It's wonderful to have you here.

  • -If I had a nickel for every time I've said that.

  • And thank you for having me for Cinco de Mayo.

  • You know, you could have had anyone to discuss

  • the Mexican army's victory over the French

  • at the Battle of Puebla, but you chose me.

  • Although I'm having trouble distinguishing the Cincos

  • from the Mayos at this point.

  • -Oh, yeah. Well, it's been a long quarantine.

  • But that's an important holiday to you, Cinco de Mayo?

  • -Oh, well, sure.

  • I've been master of ceremonies at that parade so many times.

  • Yeah, I -- No, I have to tell you, this is a nice change

  • of pace from my usual routine of staring into space

  • and then weeping uncontrollably.

  • My days in quarantine,

  • they've kind of become like the "Fast and Furious" movies.

  • Each one of them is different but really exactly the same.

  • -Right, right, right.

  • -My husband is, I think, fed up living in isolation with me.

  • Yesterday, he booked me on a cruise to Wuhan.

  • -Oh, no. -Wuhan.

  • -Wuhan. -Yeah.

  • See you at the wet market.

  • And there's a phrase I never want to hear again --

  • "wet market." -Yeah.

  • -"I just shopped at the wet market."

  • "So is the bat fresh?"

  • "Yes, Mrs. Moskowitz, flew in just this morning."

  • So I joined a support group, celebrities in quarantine.

  • And this morning I got to play

  • Words with Friends with Melania Trump.

  • -You did? -Yes. Boy, she loves a puzzle.

  • It was fun until the end when she used up all her letters

  • to spell "get me the hell out of here,"

  • which I didn't realize was one word.

  • And then, I played prescription swap with Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz.

  • And those guys like to party.

  • -So you go and just everybody just dumps out their pills

  • and you get what you get? Is that how it works?

  • -That's right. And then we FedEx stuff to each other, yeah.

  • Oh, man.

  • But, you know, I'm in the Hamptons.

  • -Yes. -Quarantining in the Hamptons.

  • It's different out here. -Mm-hmm.

  • -It's brutal.

  • Last week, I traded Alec Baldwin a lobster cracker

  • for some sunscreen and a pool noodle.

  • -Right. Well, everything has a different value now.

  • -Well, I think so.

  • And have you noticed everyone's baking sourdough bread?

  • -I have. [ Laughs ]

  • -Do you like these transitions? -I love them.

  • -Sourdough bread. -Sourdough bread.

  • Very popular right now.

  • -I can't bake sourdough

  • because it was my nickname in high school.

  • It's a painful memory.

  • And not to mention that it takes weeks to bake sourdough bread.

  • But in the end you know

  • it's going to taste like absolute crap.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • That's what keeps you looking forward to it.

  • That's what keep you putting in.

  • How do you -- You mentioned Melania.

  • How do you feel the President is handling the moment

  • we're living through right now?

  • -Oh, we're doomed. We're doomed.

  • Seth, there's no way around this now.

  • Let's just get to the civil war.

  • It's just -- It's crazy.

  • He's lost his mind,

  • probably from ingesting all the Clorox over the years.

  • Yesterday he suggested we could zap the virus

  • by sticking a fork in an electric socket.

  • -Oh, I missed that one. -Did you miss that one?

  • -Yeah. -Yeah.

  • -No. So I'm just trying to look for

  • any positive news I can find.

  • Like, for example, Kim Jong-un is in perfect health.

  • Wasn't that a relief?

  • -Thank goodness.

  • -And how did Kim Jong-un go missing?

  • I mean, you could spot this guy from space.

  • Just follow the pork rind trail from the palace.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -Do you know what I'm saying?

  • -I do.

  • I will say, here's some good news.

  • And I've been saying this to sort of everybody

  • who's been lucky enough to be promoting a show

  • that they filmed and finished before this started.

  • -I feel very lucky.

  • And especially because, you know,

  • Broadway is now sadly shut down.

  • -Yeah. -And nobody knows.

  • That's the scary part.

  • Nobody knows what's going to happen.

  • And obviously it's going to take longer than we would like,

  • although we'll know when to reopen Broadway

  • when we see white smoke coming out of Scott Rudin's chimney.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -That's just for you and me.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -Somewhere in the Midwest someone's saying,

  • "Umbridge, who's Scott Rudin?"

  • -It's a complete flat line of audience reaction

  • in the Midwest right now.

  • -But the good news is, I don't know if you heard,

  • but any movie premiering on demand,

  • which didn't play in theaters,

  • will be eligible for the Academy Award,

  • which means we're one step closer to hearing

  • "And the Oscar goes to Pete Davidson."

  • -[ Laughs ] -"King of Staten Island."

  • I would pay good money to see that acceptance speech.

  • -I would -- Yes, exactly.

  • I feel as though he would make the most of it.

-Our first guest is a Tony Award-winning actor
