7:12 am
long-standing question. really? you think you know the answer, michael? there's an easy answer, by the way, if you look at these pictures. >> what you got? >> doctors wired 20 men in china to a machine that simulated childbirth by sending electric shocks to the abdomen for 30 seconds. average labor 10 to 15 hours. there were scales of pain from 50 to 500. all but 1 man gave up at level 100. still had a few hundred to go. one made it to 500. he's the father of triplets. you can see the excruciating pain he is in. >> that's like one day of crunches at the gym for me. >> feel free to tweet michael strahan. >> you know what you just did? you guaranteed that you're going to have that test on the air next time you're here. >> i'll do it. i'm no fool.

7:14 am
contracted this? >> the good news is this virus does not spread easily person-to-person. everyone who has gotten it is a health care worker or a family member taking care of somebody. but if you travel around the globe and you get sick within a few weeks, the first thing you need to do is tell your doctor or nurse i've been traveling. it may not be mers. there's dengue, and all kinds of diseases out there. if you don't tell them that, they're not going to be thinking about it, you're not going to get the right treatment, and others could get sick. >> good advice there. >> thanks very much. now, into the investigation that left a former football player hospitalized, punched and kicked in the head sunday morning. one suspect arrested. and this morning, police are looking at surveillance video, hoping to find the second one. abc's alex perez has the story. >> reporter: this weekend, he was celebrating his college graduation. but this morning, former minnesota university football linebacker isaac kolstad is fighting to stay alive. the 24-year-old is in critical

7:16 am
that's when investigators say the man in the red shirt ran up to kolstad and punched him in the face. so hard, witnesses say kolstad immediately collapsed. >> he immediately fell to the ground. i can still hear the sound of when his head hit the ground. it was horrible. >> reporter: surveillance cameras captured nelson approaching him, who was motionless on the ground, kicking him in the head. right now, he's been unresponsive for about ten minutes. >> reporter: nelson told police, he doesn't remember kicking kolstad. and rutgers is reserving comment until the legal process is complete. kolstad's family has already been told he will have permanent brain damage. but the extent of the damage won't be known for a few weeks. robin, george? >> we wish the very best for him. thank you. and we're going to switch gears right now. big story in the music business. >> the man is still putting out music, robin. >> it's a new cultural moment. a new album out overnight from michael jackson. it's making you move your feet, people. open up your ears. it's paired up with some of the

8:33 am
now. and i think we have a great crowd out here today. i think there's a tornado coming. i better take cover. the storm the is coming up on the highway. stay indoors. remember, i'm not a weather girl. i'm a meteorologist. for "good morning america," this is ginger zee in munroe, north carolina. back to you, robin and george. >> that was good, savanna. >> thank you. >> i think savanna should help you with getting a final check of weather. >> you are good already. thank you so much. you want to start us off? >> uh-huh. >> look in the camera and start talking about it. >> okay. >> right here. >> our -- >> twitter picture. >> our twitter pic comes today from colorado. >> from colorado. where the snow is melting fast. >> yes, it is.

8:35 am
lara's little mini-mes. and at the end of the week, all of our mini-mes will be co-hosting "gma." now, is the mini-me a pinch of ginger? yeah. a little ginger. savanna, you were great. >> thanks. >> thank you. let's go inside to george. >> thank you, guys. you all may know matt bomer as the charismatic conman in "white color" or in "magic mike." he takes a new turn in "the normal heart," who plays a "new york times" reporter who falls in love with an aids activist. >> shutting up is my problem. >> why do you write all of that? >> i'll bet you gobble it up every day. >> i know ten people who have died. when i came to you, it was only one. >> i'm sorry. >> and matt bomer joins us now. welcome to "gma."
8:36 am
incredible performance you gave right there. and this was something -- this was a role you've been drawn to for a long time. you read "the normal heart" as a teenager. >> yeah. i read the play for the first time when i was 14 and living in suburban texas. it just blew my mind. i had no idea that this was going on. and no one around me was talking about it. it completely changed my world view. and getting to be a part of it 20 years later is just, like, the opportunity of a lifetime. >> that's one of the things that makes this so special. it is 20 years later. we're not in the middle of the crisis. we get to view it with the perspective of history. >> i think it's scary to think about it as a period piece. aids hasn't been eradicated. and there's 6,000 new cases of it every day. 30 years of the original production, it's getting a life on film as a really profound gift. >> you actually got to work a bit with the playwright, larry
8:37 am
kramer. you all worked together, filming a big party seen on the day that the supreme court struck down the marriage act. >> larry, in so many ways, is somewhat responsible for that moment, to be there with him on that day was just completely surreal. and one of those few times in your life when you feel like you're really in the right place at the right time. and that's part of something really special. and to see him there on that day, was just unbelievable. >> of course, we all saw you in "magic mike." lara insisted i bring up "magic mike." you had to go through a physical transformation? was it 30, 40 pounds? >> i stopped weighing myself after 35. i thought the number wasn't important. we had a couple weeks to go. matthew was incredibly helpful. i reached out to him. he gave me pointers. and i did my own thing, too. and he was very kind.
8:38 am
>> are we going to see a "magic mike 2"? >> that's the game plan. i'm happy to be along for the ride. those guys were the first people to bring me to the party. i'll be there however they want to have me. >> you brought a lot to "the normal heart." >> thank you very much. >> it premieres on hbo sunday, may 5th. coming up, valerie harper. this tillamookmook old fashd vanilla ice cream is absolutely amazing. creammmmmy. it makes my tongue dance. me too. hey you two, stop that tillamook tongue dancing and get back to work! tillamook ice cream, tastes better because it's made better.
8:39 am
a broader mix of energies, world needs to move, to keep warm, to make clay piggies.
8:40 am
that's why we are supplying natural gas, to generate cleaner electricity, that has around 50% fewer co2 emissions than coal. let's broaden the world's energy mix, let's go.
8:41 am
i'm loving me some valerie harper right now. she is defying the odds, facing lung cancer. doctors told her she had just three months to live. that was one year and four months ago. she is here to share some insight on survival and what she is doing to help other cancer patients. and we are so happy. please, please welcome valerie harper. >> thank you so much. i am so welcomed by you. and this is a great red-letter day. let's call it turquoise red letter day. you're launching this for us. it's called lung force. and it's about the real, real problem and opportunity that we have. >> number one killer. >> number one killer of women. and women were surveyed. and they said what cancer is the most dangerous to you? the percentage that said lung cancer, 1%. they perceived either breast cancer or ovarian or any number, which all need attention.
8:42 am
but lung cancer has been so neglected. and it's also been stigmatized. must smoke. when i say my mom died of lung cancer. oh, she was a smoker. never in her life. and that goes along with people trying to distance themselves from lung cancer because the real truth is, if you have lung cancer, you're in line for lung cancer. it's time to get the funding to fight it, to research it. more than anything, let people know what the deal is and how dangerous it is to women. >> that's why you have aligned yourself with the american lung association. >> exactly. they are great. they're 100 years old. older. >> they've been out there. >> they started out with t.b. and i think of them as a brave organization. back in the turn of the century, 1900s, who was doing anything for t.b.? this organization was saying, we have to do something. people have to breathe. >> you want to make it clear that that's what you have.
8:43 am
>> thank you. >> there was speculation that it was brain cancer. >> it's located in the lining of my brain. i'm on the cusp. but the lung cancer, the cell that's causing the disease, is lung cancer. and the extraordinary thing for me was having this opportunity to talk to everybody. and, oh, talk about corporate responsibility. everyone knows cvs. i shop there all the time. but they've done an amazing thing. they're going to lose 2. -- as high as $2.5 billion a year, by taking cigarettes off their shelves. they're removing tobacco products. i think that's sensational. people should cheer it. >> sending a strong message. you did when you spoke before the senate. >> oh. >> in the hearings. it was very vocal. i want to talk to you, we have so many people asking, how are you doing it?
8:44 am
they want to know. >> just like their neighbor. like you, my girlfriend. my tests were on friday last. really great. i mean, i have a smiling brain cancer. actually, he's a neurologist. he said, this is so good. we're moving in the right direction. i haven't shifted in any way. and i'm feeling well. i get tired. but i'm going to be 75. i mean, come on. >> you -- visualization, too? >> that i do. maybe you do. >> i do. >> i think it's really important. >> tell people. >> visualization is visualizing anything you want in your head. i visualize myself getting rid of the cancer cells. i touch them with a wand. i look like tinkerbell. i create anything i want. and you heal yourself through actually visualizing the cells healing. or kicking them out wherever they're sitting around. and i talk to them, too.
8:45 am
i say, you guys -- >> get out of there. >> you're killing the host. you're dumb. be smart. don't grow so much. we can co-exist. >> you know what else helps? dancing. you were on "dancing with the stars." and we know you have a favorite. >> well, i have been pulling for that darling charlie white. and his partner. i think they are marvelous. i was hoping it would be a tie. although, there's wonderful people. the gal with no legs. >> amy purdy. >> and nondancers coming up and dancing. i love it. >> i think we -- is charlie around here somewhere. oh, look. >> my gosh. >> every grandmother's dream. you are such a fine dancer. >> thank you. >> oh. i miss you and the rest of the crew. >> you can see she's doing well. >> i am. >> thank you, all.
8:46 am
