  • -Hey, Ethan, I want to talk about

  • your new Showtime limited series.

  • -My wife and I fell in love with this book,

  • "The Good Lord Bird."

  • It won the National Book Award a few years ago.

  • And it manages to talk about John Brown

  • and the abolitionist movement in a hysterically funny way,

  • which you kind of can't imagine.

  • It's kind of like if Richard Pryor or Redd Foxx

  • got together and told you the story of John Brown.

  • I mean, it's so funny and so crazy.

  • And, so, my wife was like,

  • "You have to play John Brown."

  • And I'm like, "I can't play John Brown."

  • And we're like, "Well, alright." And we went,

  • and we met the author, James McBride.

  • He lives in Brooklyn. And we met him.

  • And we had this incredible experience.

  • So for the last few years, that's what I've been doing

  • is trying to put this show together,

  • and it's huge, you know? It's seven parts.

  • It's beautiful.

  • It's hysterically weird and funny,

  • and I have a feeling --

  • I hope it'll mean something to people.

  • To those of us who worked on it,

  • it was bar none one of the best experiences I had.

  • -It comes out August 9th. -Daddy! No!

  • -Are your kids interrupting, or have you --

  • -[ Laughing ] They're -- Don't you come over here.

  • Do not come over here now.

  • If you were running, you were doing something else.

  • -I got my kids in the other room!

  • What -- I mean, I --

  • I take my job seriously, Jimmy.

  • [ Girls giggling ] -Yeah, I -- Yeah --

  • Both of you guys, out of here right now.

  • -Hi! How are you?

  • [ Laughter ]

  • You got to meet my daughter. [ Girls giggling ]

  • -This is Winnie. This is --

  • Where's me? I'm out of the whole picture.

  • -Hey -- -This is me. Hi. This --

  • -Would you tell your father to give me that VW Bus?

  • Tell your dad to give Ethan that bus.

  • It doesn't work anymore. and Ethan should have it.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • We're not giving away our bus.

  • Goodbye. I love you.

  • Have fun at school. Have fun.

  • Goodbye. Goodbye. Goodbye.

  • Take care. -[ Chatters indistinctly ]

  • -Thank you. -Alright. Bye-bye.

  • -Alright.

  • -Goodbye.

  • -Jimmy, that is -- That is definitely

  • the best moment I've ever had on television.

  • I mean, your kids are awesome.

  • [ Girl giggling ]

  • This is my interview!

  • I'm talking about my show! -This is his interview.

  • -Okay? This is precious airtime.

  • These kids have no respect! -[ Laughing ] No.

  • Oh, my gosh. They said no, they wanted to play,

  • and now it's all off the rails.

  • Oh, my gosh. -Okay.

  • -Ethan's charity is The Doe Fund.

  • Can you tell us what that is?

  • -Okay, for those New Yorkers

  • you might see people with on their back,

  • it says, "Ready, Willing & Able."

  • And The Doe Fund is an organization

  • that helps men who are homeless,

  • guys who are getting out of jail,

  • guys who are finding themselves in a position

  • where they need to restart their life,

  • and they don't have much of a net underneath them.

  • And The Doe Fund has more successfully

  • than any place I've ever heard of

  • taken people who are destitute

  • and turned them into members of society

  • who are showing up for their kids

  • and showing up for their families and paying their rent

  • and bank accounts and helping our communities.

  • It's really inspiring.

  • They're a great group of men.

  • And you know that famous poem "Stronger in the Broken Places"?

  • These guys are definitely stronger in the broken places.

  • -Guys, check out Doe, D-O-E, dot org/donate.

  • -Any help you can give is much, much appreciated.

  • -Ethan Hawke, you know I love you.

  • I can't love you any more, man.

  • You're my favorite, always will be.

  • And I can't wait to see you, whether it be on the road --

  • I'll leave the keys under the tire, okay?

  • -Okay, alright, I'll be there. Yeah.

  • When it's gone in the morning --

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • Bye, bud.

  • Love you, man. -See you, Jimmy.
