  • KYLE CHANDLER IS HERE.

  • KYLE, SO NICE TO SEE YOU.

  • I MEAN I HAVE NEVER FELT SO JEALOUS OF SOMEONE'S VONDINGS IN

  • ALL OF THESE DISPLOOMS, THAT IS QUITE THE FIREPLACE YOU HAVE GOT

  • ROARING THERE.

  • >> WE NEED TO HURRY UP THIS INTERVIEW BECAUSE IT'S REALLY

  • HOT TOO.

  • >> NOW YOU'RE ZOOMING IN FROM YOUR HOME IN TEXAS.

  • HAVE YOU ADJUSTED TO THIS NEW VIRTUAL WORK LIFE THAT SO MANY

  • OF US ARE DEALING WITH RIGHT NOW?

  • >> YOU KNOW, I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE, THERE ARE POSITIVES AND

  • NEGATIVES WITHIN ALL THIS CRAZINESS.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> THE CLOSENESS OF FAMILY AND NEW RELATIONSHIP IN THE FAMILY,

  • I DON'T THINK WE HAVE EVER BEEN CLOSER IN THE HOUSE THAN EVER

  • BEFORE.

  • BUT THE OTHER PART, AS FAR AS WORK IS CONCERNED, DOING

  • SOMETHING LIKE THIS, I ENJOY DOING IT LIKE THIS.

  • I, THIS TAKES AWAY A LOT OF STRESS, TRAVEL, TENSION, THE

  • WHOLE DEAL.

  • AND I FEEL COMFORTABLE.

  • YOU SIT HEAR IN YOUR UNDER-- IN YOUR PANTS AND EVERYTHING IS

  • GOOD.

  • >> James: YEAH.

  • WELL NOW WE KNOW THAT BELOW THAT SCREEN ARE YOU JUST IN YOUR

  • UNDERPANTS AND I UNDERSTAND WHY.

  • BECAUSE THAT IS A WARM FIRE.

  • I GET IT.

  • NOW KYLE, THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME ON THE SHOW.

  • AND I SHOULD SAY I'M SUCH A HUGE FAN OF SO MANY PERFORMANCES THAT

  • YOU HAVE GIVEN IN YOUR CAREER, I REALLY AM, BUT I DIDN'T KNOW

  • THIS, THAT WHEN YOU BECAME AN ACTOR, A WAFFLE HOUSE PLAYED A

  • SIGNIFICANT ROLL IN YOUR CHOICE TO ACT.

  • AND HOW DOES THIS, EXPLAIN TO ME HOW THIS HAPPENS.

  • WHAT IS SIGNIFICANT.

  • >> THE UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA, A GIRLFRIEND AND I WERE WALKING

  • DOWN THE STREET AROUND 3:00 IN THE MORNING AND A WAFFLE HOUSE

  • WAS AROUND THE CORNER FROM WHERE WE WERE LAYING OUR STUFF AND TO

  • GET A CUP OF COFFEE AN I RAN INTO FOUR PEOPLE WHO WERE VERY

  • STRANGE, VERY BIZARRE PEOPLE, THREE GUYS AND A GIRL.

  • AND WE BUMMED A CIGARETTE.

  • WE HAD THE LONGEST CONVERSATION.

  • AND AS I WAS LEAVING THE ONE NELL FELLOW BECAME A VERY DEAR

  • FRIEND, HE GOES YOU SHOULD TRY OUT FOR A PLAY DOWN IN THE

  • CELLAR THEATER.

  • I HAVE NO IDEA WHY, THEY ENDED UP, THEY WERE WITH THE DRAMA

  • DEPARTMENT.

  • I AUDITIONED FOR A KOL DE OF ERRORS.

  • I WAS ONE-- IN GOT THE ROLE, ENDED UP GOING TO GRAVE YARD AND

  • DOING ALL THE STUDY, A DIGSED, GOT IT AND IT CHANGED MY LIFE.

  • ONE, ONCE I MET ALL THOSE PEOPLE, THEY WERE ALL ABSOLUTE

  • FREAKS, I MEAN NUTS.

  • AND I KNEW I HAD FOUND MY HOME, I WAS IN.

  • AND THE OTHER THING WAS WHEN WE DID THAT SHOW IN THE YELLAR

  • THEATER,-- CELLAR THEATER AND IT ENDED AND WE STOOD THERE AND I

  • HEARD-- I WAS IN.

  • THAT WAS WHEN I WENT HOME TO TELL MY MOTHER, HERE IS WHAT I

  • DECIDED I'M GOING TO TRY TO DO.

  • AND THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF IT.

  • >> James: WELL, GOD BLESS TYREE FOR SEEING THAT TALENT IN

  • YOU.

  • OTHERWISE WE NEVER WOULD HAVE HAD SOME OF THE INCREDIBLE SHOWS

  • AND MOVIES.

  • FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS IS SUCH A ICONIC SHOW.

  • AND I DIDN'T KNOW THIS BUT SOME OF YOUR REAL LIFE ACTUALLY MADE

  • IT ON TO THE SCREEN IN THAT SHOW, IN WHAT WAY DID YOUR REAL

  • LIFE BLEED INTO THE SCRIPT FOR THAT.

  • >> IT WAS FUNNY BECAUSE FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, CONEY AND I RNGZ

  • AND, SHE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST PEOPLE I KNOW, I LOVE HER

  • DEARLY.

  • SHE AND I WOULD HAVE OPPORTUNITIES TO IMPROV DURING

  • THE SHOW.

  • AND SO IT WAS JUST NATURAL THAT YOU KNOW, WE-- 25 YEARS I HAD

  • BEEN MARRIED TO THIS POINT.

  • DURING THE MARRIAGE YOU GET IN THESE ARGUMENTS.

  • AND I DON'T WIN MANY OF THEM BUT I CAN BRING THE ARGUMENT TO THE

  • SHOW, PRESENT THE ARGUMENT, PUT MY FACTS OUT THERE, WIN THE

  • ARGUMENT, DONE.

  • AND SO WHEN THE SHOW WOULD AIR AND MY WIFE WOULD SEE THESE

  • THINGS SHE WOULD BE LIKE-- THEY WOULD CALL ME SOMETHING.

  • AND IT WAS REALLY FUN.

  • AS WELL AS THE KIDS.

  • TRY TO GET ONE OF MY DAUGHTERS ADVICE, AND STOP HALFWAY

  • THROUGH, LIKE DAD, I HEARD THAT ONE.

  • EPISODE 7, SEASON 2.

  • >> James: YOU TALK ABOUT YOUR DAUGHTERS, THEY WERE LIKE, THIS

  • IS EXCITING.

  • ONE OF YOUR DAUGHTERS SYDNEY HAS BEEN CAST IN THE NEW OLIVIA

  • WILDE MOVIE, DON'T WORRY-- HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT HER FOLLOWING

  • IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS?

  • DO YOU HAVE ANY WORRY OR ANXIETY ABOUT HER ACTING?

  • >> WELL, I NEVER PUSHED THE KIDS AT ALL.

  • IF ANYTHING, I SUGGEST THAT THEY BE DOCTORS AND LAUERS.

  • -- LAWYERS, I NEVER PUSHED THEM IN THAT AREA, BUT I WAS IN ROME

  • DOING CATCH 22 AND SHE WAS VISITING.

  • SHE TOLD ME, SHE GRADUATED WITH A WRITING DEGREE AND IS A VERY

  • GOOD WRITER, VERY WELL-READ, VERY SHARP KID.

  • AND SHE SAID POP, I WANT TO TAKE SOME ACTING CLASSES.

  • I WAS LIKE OH REALLY, SHE GOES BUT IT'S ONLY TO LEARN HOW TO

  • DEVELOP CHARACTERS FOR MY STORIES.

  • I THINK IT WILL BENEFIT TO DEVELOP CHARACTERS.

  • >> I SAID THAT IS A GREAT IDEA.

  • AND THAT IS WHAT SHE DID.

  • AND THEN SHE PURSUED IT FURTHER AND FURTHER AND WE SPENT THE

  • WHOLE LAST TEN MONTHS GOING IN AND OUT OF THE GUEST HOUSE, SHE

  • HAD ALL THESE AUDITIONS THAT WE PUT ON TAPE.

  • THERE WAS A COMPLETE DIFFERENT LANGUAGE WE HAD TOGETHER AND

  • DIFFERENT RELATIONSHIP THAT I FIND BEAUTIFUL.

  • BUT SHE JUST TOLD ME THE OTHER DAY, I WAS TELLING HER, SHE SAID

  • OH YEAH, I LIED TO YOU.

  • I GO WHAT DO YOU MEAN, I WAS ALREADY IN ACTING CLASS WHEN I

  • ASKED YOU IF IT WAS ALL RIGHT.

  • >> James: THAT IS GREAT, WHAT AN INCREDIBLE THING TO BE PART

  • OF.

  • WE HAVE TO CONGRATULATE YOU ON YOUR BRILLIANT NEW MOVIE, THE

  • MIDNIGHT SKY.

  • FOR ANYONE THAT DOESN'T KNOW TELL THEM WHAT IT IS ABOUT AND

  • WHO YOU PLAY.

  • >> MIDNIGHT SKY IS ABOUT A SCIENTIST ON EARTH IN THE ARCTIC

  • ALONE, SOLE SCIENTIST, GEORGE CLOONEY AND HE IS RACING TO TRY

  • TO STOP A SPACE CRAFT FROM RETURNING TO EARTH AFTER A

  • MULTIYEAR JOURNEY BECAUSE THERE IS A GLOBAL CATASTROPHE.

  • THERE ST. >> James: NOW THIS IS YOUR

  • THIRD TIME WORKING WITH GEORGE CLOONEY.

  • DO YOU GUYS HAVE A SHORT HAND IN THE WAY THAT YOU COMMUNICATE?

  • WHAT IS HE LIKE ON THE SET AS A DIRECTOR?

  • >> IN WILL ALL SERIOUSNESS, YES.

  • BECAUSE I IS AN ACTOR AS WELL SO YOU ARE ALREADY SKIPPING THE

  • MIDDLEMAN WHEN IT COMES TO DISCUSSING THINGS.

  • AND HE ALSO, HE-- IT IS PROBABLY LIKE YOUR SET RIGHT THERE.

  • YOU WANT TO MAKE IF IT FUN, EVERYBODY KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE

  • DOING, THEY ARE DOING 110%.

  • >> James: YEAH.

  • >> OH, SORRY.

  • >> James: I THINK IF I AM HONEST, I THINK WE ARE AT ABOUT

  • 68% HERE BUT THAT'S ACTUALLY GOOD FOR A MONDAY.

  • SO YEAH, I WILL TAKE THAT.

  • I DONE THINK I HAVE EVER SEEN 110.

  • >> WATCH YOUR BACK.

  • >> James: WHAT IS HE LIKE WHEN IS HE GIVING YOU NOTES, YOU SAY

  • HE IS AN ACTOR, YOU ARE AN ACTOR, THAT MUST BE GREAT TO

  • HAVE A DIRECTOR WHO KNOWS EXACTLY HOW YOU ARE FEELING.

  • >> SO HE GIVES THESE, LIKE ONE OF THE GREAT DIRECTORS.

  • HE COMES UP WITH, HE IS THE KIND OF DIRECT THARY SAYS YES AND IT

  • MEANS MORE.

  • ALTHOUGH A LOT OF THE TIMES I GET THE SAME DIRECTION FROM MOST

  • ACTORS AND DIRECTORS.

  • THE ONE THING THAT HE SAYS, YOU KNOW, WE COME UP FRRK HIS HEART

  • WE SAY IT, FROM HIS MIND HE WOULD MEAN T AND HE WOULD SAY

  • ACT BETTER.

  • AND I WOULD.

  • >> James: YOU ABSOLUTELY WOULD.

  • KYLE WE'VE BEEN DOING A THING CALLED THE "LATE, LATE SHOW" N

  • TELL WHERE WE ASK OUR GUESTS TO SHARE SOMETHING FROM HOME THAT

  • WE MAY OTHERWISE NEVER GET TO SEE.

  • DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH US TONIGHT?

  • >> I DO, JAMES.

  • I HAVE SOMETHING I HAVE TO SHARE TONIGHT.

  • THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN IN MY HOUSE FOR 28 YEARS.

  • THIS IS SOMETHING THAT MY WIFE AND I WHEN WE FIRST MET, WE WERE

  • SHARING A BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE AND WE HAD GRAPES AND CHEESE AND

  • CRACKERS AND FOR SOME REASON WE TOOK A GRAPE AND WE ROLLED IT IN

  • THE WAX OF THE CANDLE, AND WE SAID WE WILL KEEP THIS GRAPE

  • UNTIL, WELL, UNTIL WE'RE NOT TOGETHER ANY MORE.

  • SO I STILL HAVE IT.

  • SO IF YOU WANT A LONG RELATIONSHIP, TAKE A GRAPE AND

  • ROLL IT IN WAX AND THEN YOU JOIN HANDS IN MATRIMONY, BUT IF YOU

  • DON'T WANT TO BE TOGETHER WITH SOMEONE FOR 25 YEARS, DO NOT

  • ROLL A GRAPE IN WAX BEFORE YOU GET.

  • FOR GOD'S SAKE.

  • >> James: I HAVE NEVER WATCHED THE CONSPIRACY THEORY VIDEO BUT

  • I FEEL LIKE THIS IS WHAT THEY FEEL LIKE.
