  • I'm right there next to Dr. Anthony Fauci.

  • You know, he's got the looks. I've got the mind.

  • - You play this amazing character in "Wonder Woman: 1984."

  • Congratulations on the film and this role.

  • You just kill it in this, man.

  • So the title suggests, the setting is 1984.

  • With somebody who loves me."

  • - Okay, when you do it like that,

  • just so you know, it gets creepy.

  • It's not, it's not sweet. (laughs)

  • Let's talk a little bit about 80s hair

  • because your character has some quality 80s hair.

  • I have a challenge for you, Pedro.

  • I'm going to show you an 80s' star, only their hair.

  • Let's see if you can ID them.

  • (energetic jazz music)

  • - That's not 80s. That's 70s.

  • Is that a Brady?

  • - (laughs) It's not a Brady, no.

  • - It's not a Brady?

  • - No. He hung out with a couple men and a baby.

  • - Is that Tom Selleck?

  • - It's Tom Selleck. It's Tom Selleck.

  • He's living on a?

  • - He's living on a prayer. - On a prayer, man.

  • Jon Bon Jovi.

  • These aren't actors.

  • - Come on.

  • (laughing together)

  • This is a tricky one.

  • His hair could be about,

  • I don't know, an "Ocean's 11" inches.

  • - That's not.

  • - Yes, it is.

  • - That's not.

  • - It is. Get ready.

  • - But that's not.

  • It's George Clooney?

  • That isn't fair.

  • - Why is that not?

  • - That isn't fair.

  • - Why not?

  • - Nah, because even the George Clooney

  • that we saw in the 80s was like "Facts of Life,"

  • and he didn't have long hair.

  • - Take it up with my research department.

  • - Research department, I need to speak to everybody.

  • - Yeah. She's got her own theme park.

  • You better know that one.

  • You ever been to Dollywood?

  • - Oh, I've never been to Dollywood,

  • but I've been to Dollywood. You know what I'm saying?

  • - Not really. Not really.

  • (laughing together)

  • Your character, Max Ward,

  • has one of those great comic book character names.

  • It's a character name that could only exist

  • in the comic books or in porn.

  • So here's the challenge.

  • I'm going to give you a character name.

  • You tell me if this is an actual DC character

  • or a porn star.

  • (energetic jazz music)

  • - I'm going to know this.

  • - (laughs) This is what you were made for.

  • Damian Dark? (laughs)

  • - Is it a porn star?

  • - It's not. It's a DC villain.

  • - Oh, that's a shame. (laughs)

  • - Herschel Savage?

  • - Porn star.

  • - You knew that too quickly.

  • You knew that really quickly. (laughs)

  • Are you frozen or just enjoying the moment?

  • - I'm just enjoying the moment.

  • - George Payne?

  • - He's a super hero.

  • - No, it's a porn star. You got to look that one up.

  • - Ouch.

  • - Hector Hammond?

  • - DC.

  • - Yeah, yeah. That's a Green Lantern.

  • - That thing with the plants.

  • - Well, I don't know about that.

  • Is it, maybe. That's the Green Lantern villain.

  • I think Peter Sarsgaard played that one.

  • - Plants and the flashlights.

  • (Pedro blows raspberry)

  • - (laughs) You sold it well.

  • Black Adam? Porn star or DC character?

  • - DC character.

  • - That's DJ. That's The Rock.

  • Buck Adams?

  • - Porn star.

  • - I feel like you've seen some of Buck's work.

  • - I mean, we're writing these down, right? Because.

  • (Josh laughs)

  • - That's the rest of your day. (laughs)

  • - I need to look all of this up.

  • Harold Allnut?

  • - Harold Walnut?

  • - Harold Allnut?

  • (laughing together)

  • - I mean, would it matter which one he is?

  • - Oh, I'll watch his work regardless.

  • What do you think?

  • - I'll watch his work regardless.

  • Regardless, I am fan. (Josh laughs)

  • I hope he's a porn star.

  • - I hate to be the one that breaks your dreams down.

  • - It's a shame. It's a shame.

  • Although, kudos to DC.

  • - Slow clap. - That's a great name.

  • Harold Allnut, I mean, that is a great name.

  • - Oh my God.

  • Let's talk Mandalorian.

  • You should be earning so much credibility

  • with kids right now,

  • but they probably don't even recognize you.

  • Do you ever just like put a lampshade on your head

  • and whisper, "This is the way," to them?

  • - I always feel bad.

  • You know, somebody that I meet, a parent that I meet,

  • they have their kid, and they're like,

  • "Oh my God, I'm going to impress my child so much.

  • I'm introducing them to the Mandalorian.

  • But then it's like my face,

  • and I don't have the child with me.

  • I'm not wearing a helmet.

  • And they're just like,

  • and they look and they're like,

  • "Who's this guy?"

  • (Josh laughs) You know?

  • And then if I start,

  • if I'm going to speak to them in Mando voice,

  • it's kind of a, it's strangely like a bedroom voice.

  • You know? - (laughs) Yeah.

  • That's not appropriate for kids.
