>> a lot of these vehicles are in the hands of second owners, third owners, that's a big problem too. just in communicating to them. >> making matters worse there aren't enough replacement parts. >> reporter: here it gets worse, unfortunately. the trouble is of course that what you're looking at is a situation where they simply may have already put defective replacement parts in those cars that were repaired. so if you had your air bag repaired you may have to get it repaired again. back to you. >> which raises the question how do you know if your car is affected? >> so here's what you do. get your vin number, it's right up here in the front. it's also right here in the door jam. you go to safercar.gov. type in that vin and all of your recalls affecting that car will pop up. if the you affected by an air bag recall that will pop up. others as well. >> i assume it's time for the lawsuits now. i can only imagine some families will look for a legal remedy.

from an old friend, sidney blumenthal on libya where his colleagues were seeking business deals. >> he has been a friend of mine for a long time. he sent me unsolicited e-mails which i passed on in some instances, i'm going to keep talking to my old friends. >> some of hills e-mails were passed on to chris stevens later killed in benghazi. >> we thought hillary clinton was the most vetted presidential candidate that we'd ever seen and yet we're discovering all of these things about her that continue to cause complications and controversies for her and that is a surprise. >> reporter: now a federal judge ordered the state department to release the e-mails all of them every two months instead of waiting until next year. some may be released as soon as tomorrow. willie and savannah. >> andrea mitchell on the hillary clinton beat. thanks. >> natalie is here with the investigation into the biker shoot-out we're following all week. >> police are still processing that crime scene in waco, texas this morning, discovering every

out the door. clear. don't you worry. i'm going to get you out of here. this thing isn't going to hold! >> we are in the wind. we are going to crash. >> natalie, we are going now. >> wow. >> is that like scene one and it keeps on going from there? >> it keeps going. >> good to see you. >> good to see you too. >> your character in this movie is just kind of a stud. i don't mean just because he's a studly helicopter pilot, but he's a good guy. >> thank you. >> don't you think? >> i was really lucky to play a guy like this. i've had the opportunity in the past to play some pretty good guys who did some pretty good things. but this guy, honestly is special. being a first responder a en erer
and a loving dad. and he is so proficient at what he does. he saves people for a living. he flies and drives and everything in the face of disaster. but at the same time he's struggling. he's struggling with a relationship with his daughter and wife. and i love that dichotomy. >> there was a bit of something for everybody. even we were talking about this in the tease. there was a bit of crying on camera. did that come easy to you or was that a stretch? >> well you know it came -- i don't want to -- not to lessen it but it came a bit easy only because i was prepared. and the idea of look i felt like on so many levels i know who this guy is. i'm a divorced man. i know what it's like to love my young 13-year-old daughter. but also struggle with the relationship and hopefully you're being a good dad. but the idea of losing my
daughter not being able to save her like we showcased in the movie, well in an instant it brings you to tears. regardless of how tough you think you are. >> i don't want to give the wrong impression. this is not terms of endearment. this is like nonstop action. >> that was the goal. the goal was to make an epic movie and help elevate a genre that's an amazing genre, the natural disaster genre, the disaster film genre. but also we wanted to anchor it with something special which was family. every day we had this mantra which was the big special effects and the spectacle of this like a "titanic," like a "towering inferno," that's going to bring the audiences in. if we develop characters that bring audiences in that's good. >> let me put up the latest cover of "men's health."
hello. >> look at that. >> what's your daily workout routine? >> well i have this thing where i like to get up before the sun. and so i was up. i like to get up and just like to do a little bit of cardio play my music really loud like here in new york in the hotels wake everybody up. get the calls from the hotel. but then i feel like if there's some sort of activity for me in the morning, it could be -- and for somebody it's pilates or walking or biking whatever it is. at least it anchors my day. then i'm able to work 12 to 16 hours a day. >> did you bench press the bellman on the way to the studio today. >> you said bellman as if it's singular. it's plurl. you've known me too long. bellmen. >> exactly. before i let you go, i'm a devoted follower of your instagram feed. >> thank you so much. >> little dancing was on it the other day. >> yes. >> i think we can roll the video because here you are with your moves. can you give us the back story on this. >> yes. i'm shooting an action movie
with kevin hart. and in it my character is -- in it my character was relentlessly bullied in high school but loved to dance. so then he goes off, he quits high school and then becomes a cia contract killer but he's still that young kid, that young boy. so that's why i'm taking dance lessons now. and at the end of the movie, i may or may not have this pretty cool dance sequence. and i may or may not wear a fanny pack in the movie too. >> and you may or may not have jazz hands. >> yes. >> dwayne johnson, always a pleasure to see you. thank you so much.

this morning on "today's take," bill murray cooks up a sweet idea as he bids farewell to david letterman. then twilight star kellen lutz getting a thrill. all that and more coming up now. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today's take" with al roker, natalie morales, willie geist and tamron hall live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> good looking baby and a good looking crowd out on our plaza on a beautiful morning in new york city. it is wednesday, may 20th 2015. inside studio 1a i'm willie along with al natalie, and
tamron. we are getting ready tonight for the end of an era. >> i'm really considering taking a nap and then getting up to watch it live. >> exactly. i want to see it live. >> i'm going to do the same thing. he's been on the air for 33 years. tonight is david letterman's last show. did he get a sendoff from his budly bill murray last night. he came out, burst out of a cake, in fact. he sat down with dave one last time. >> it's been great to see you. when you first came here you were just a tubby kid from hoosierville. now you look great. you've been working out and everything's been going your way. it's been great to see you grow from that tubby little hoosier to the man you are today. >> and the best part of it is friendships. the friendship you've brought to the program. >> why did bill look that way? there it is. he came out of the cake.
fell out of the cake, yeah. and gave dave a big hug. very generous of them there. two of them celebrated. took a few swigs of vodka on the air. >> more than a few. >> bill brought some vodka with him. >> look at the size of this bottle. >> little pull there. then he said, canon ball it, dave. off of caddy shack. then they poured it for each other. so he put all these pieces together. that's early in the evening. bill murray went to dinner, had a couple glasses of wine. then he made his way to 30 rock and stumbled onto the set of "the last word" with our friend lawrence o'donnell. >> emphasis on stumble. >> yes. check this out. >> i have to interrupt you, because there's a guy from chicago who's just barged in here. bill murray, you know, i told people there might be a surprise guest tonight. do you mind if we finish talking
about elizabeth warren? >> elizabeth warren? get to that now. >> okay. and you're not going to leave, right? is that bill murray over there? yeah, that's bill murray. we'll be back. >> oh. >> there he is as he tried to take a seat there. >> is that real? that was real? >> it looks like he hits the table on the way down. >> he wasn't injured. >> see the seat spin. he thought he had the back. >> he was okay. >> he popped back up. >> but that was jim downey with him in the picture. friends with murray and lawrence. might be the connection. >> what do you think he's going to do tonight on the big show because he's not telling anyone yet. >> i can't wait to see. he hasn't said a word about it. >> i wonder if leno will come back for the farewell. he's never been on the show and there was that rivalry but apparently they've mended the fence.
>> there's speculation about that. >> i think it'd be great. >> every time i see the reflection pieces on him, i start to tear up. i mean, 33 years. >> yeah. paul schaffer and one of our longtime stage managers bip who went over with him. >> they're going to be fishing tomorrow. >> it's like after derek jeter retired when people are so in the game and still at the top of their game and they retire, what do you do after? >> it's interesting. when carson retired, he left. >> he was a recluse. >> i wouldn't say recluse, but he just stopped performing. >> but he stopped making appearances. he kind of disappeared from public spotlight altogether. will dave do that? >> he said in his interview with jane pauley, it is the fear he has is what to do next. what happens. >> there are people campaigning
to get him to run for office. there are people that want him to run for office in indianapolis. >> i can't imagine. no. >> but how fun would it be to have david letterman run for office? he's been political at times. he's very vocal. >> he's not running for office. >> it would be amazing. we'll see what he says. >> it's been cool, too, for the next generation of comedians to watch. there's so much of dave in jimmy, jimmy colbert, stewart and the rest of them. >> they're taking the show outside. really letterman stepped away from the desk and brought the show to the streets of new york. >> and he had a daytime show on nbc. a half hour show. one of our stage managers actually worked on that show. and it was anarchy then. the daytime audience had no idea. i was working at local news. at one time they were loading a cow in the studio. i was walking by thinking that's interesting. i don't know how that's going to turn out, but okay.
>> watch where you step when the cow's in studio. >> it's going to be special. going to watch it live. will be a good one. something that caught our eye, we've been talking about this. cannes the fancy film festival with all the beautiful people very posh. apparently it's so posh that some women claim they've been turned away from film screenings because they would not wear high heels. particularly a group of women in their 50s went in wearing fancy flats but still flats and they were turned away. cannes organizers say there's no specific heel rule, but the director tweeted the rumor saying the emphasis on high heels for the women is unfounded. but again these women say they were turned away. and keir simmons did a report and a couple other people alleged they were turned away. when keir was reporting just to show you the perils of wearing high heels, it is not for the faint of heart. take a look at what happened to this woman behind him as he was reporting.
>> i think if it is obligatory for women to wear high heels on the red carpet then i am angry. >> someone just fell over right there. in heels. >> on cue. >> technically they were wedges, but it's dangerous either way when you're wearing heels. especially at a festival. i've never been there, but i see people jumping on boats and in and out. >> to get to the actual film venue and there's a lot of walking throughout the venue itself. >> i can't walk in heels. oh. oh, when he got to mcdonald's they didn't have enough caviar on our big mac. >> real people problems. >> we sometimes do news you can use to help our viewers. this is the exact opposite of that. >> no, no. i think you're missing it. here's the deal. >> please tell me what i'm missing. all these rich people at this
festival and -- okay. tell me. >> the larger issue is it goes back to women and wardrobe. and if cannes or the security guards had been given the whisper campaign not to let women in without heels, that's not fair. >> i think we're saying it's sexist, right? >> that is exactly what it is. >> you believe everything someone says once they got in trouble? i got some things to sell to you. >> do you notice women more when they wear heels? >> i think so. >> yeah. >> oh, wow. >> i thought you wore them so we notice them. >> i wear them for height. >> oh. >> hey, you know we got a couple of great animal series coming up. a bear and a guy walk into a bar. no. a bear and a man got a big scare when they unexpectedly run into
each other. this is news you can use. we just love to run this. whoa! now, here's the thing. whoever is taking this video doesn't warn the guy that there's a bear coming. it's just let's see what happens. but they're both scared. there we go. now, this next one we're not sure whether these are real or not. but the tourist says he captures this selfie. elephant grabs his camera in thailand. >> wait. elephant grabbed the camera in thailand and started taking pictures using his trunk. >> no. >> that's what he said. i don't know. >> that's real, i think. right? >> you're certifying it as real. >> i think so. >> well, why would it be impossible? >> it's not impossible. >> elephants are smart. they could totally do that. yeah. >> okay. >> totally. >> i don't know. >> so why not take a selfie?
you know what's interesting, that elephants were wearing high heels. >> no selfie stick required. >> anyway, we're looking at more wet weather for our friends through the southern plains. some areas have picked up a foot of rain and there's more on the way as we see low pressure starting to move through dragging up that gulf moisture. and it's just going to keep coming. not just today tomorrow, and really right on into the weekend. so we do have a risk of strong storms from ft. stockton into austin. golf ball sized hail possible. maybe even a few tornadoes. this is the problem, flooding. look at the rainfall amounts. from dallas up to tulsa and even going into central missouri, we've got anywhere from 3 to upwards by end of the weekend, 9 more inches of rain. there's nowhere for this rain to go. the ground is saturated. so flooding could be a very big problem this weekend.
hey, good morning to you. waking up to cloudy skies once again this morning. temperatures not all that bad. in the 50s for the most part. the cloud cover extensive. every single location. this afternoon not going to see a lot of sunshine but, again, temperatures a little bit warmer than they've been. 68 for the south bay. 66 for the peninsula today. 68 for the tri-valley. 60 in san francisco. showers are headed our way tomorrow. we'll talk more about that in about 20 minutes. >> and that's your latest weather. >> thank you very much. coming up, twilight star kellen lutz made a few hearts pound in the hugely popular sta ga "twilight". now the extreme sports fan is getting a rush in a whole new way in a new show. we'll talk to him. good to see you. women talking about activia. when i feel bloated and my stomach is rumbling in the morning, it takes me forever to get dressed. i just like wearing a lot of black. i don't have the time to be gassy

face on billboards and magazine ads. as an actor kellen lutz burst into the mega hit "twilight" franchise. >> now kellen's got something for all you adrenaline junkies. oh, my gosh! i can't believe this. they take on crazy challenges like being a human slingshot. and kellen is the host. basically this is a show where people are darts. they're human darts. >> they are human darts and have to hit a bullseye. it's unlike any show i've seen and i'm a huge fan of "fear factor" and "wipeout." i'm an extreme risk taker, adrenaline junkie. so to be able to do some of those stunts -- i got to do the human slingshot one. and i've never had a rush like that. you fly over a 300 foot canyon. then you have to remember to drop a bomb onto the target

the movies i'm doing right now. and it's nice to kind of just show more of who i am and i only do stuff that i'm passionate about. so as soon as they approached me with this and i saw myself after the reel, i said can i be on the show. they were like we were you to host the show. i said can i do the stunts. and they said if we let you do one or two will you do it. i'd love to. it's been the best experience. the contestants are great. >> i would sign up for it. >> i'd love to see you do some of them. >> they went on top of a railroad car? >> we use trains, helicopters, tons of fire, boats. you name it. we have these contestants running on top of semis where they have to jump back and forth being dragged by helicopters. >> well, we've got to choppers, trains or fire. but we are calling this truth or
dart. we're going to go across. >> all right. here's how we play. >> if you hit the bullseye, you're off the hook. if you don't b, you have to answer the question. >> you're the guest so you have to lead off. >> all people move from behind. >> if you don't hit the bullseye you take a question out. >> okay. loosen the grip. oh. here we go. >> question. >> that's not a bullseye? oh. i can't see it. >> it was a bullseye. >> let's not let tamron throw. >> worst vacation. it's the no vacation.
whenever i book a fun vacation, i book work. it's a win/win. like i missed going down to mexico city to see my buddy eddie. he rescues these lion and tiger cubs and it's the best experience of my life. so i've been trying to go down there these last two months. >> tamron just throw it. i want to see it. >> i'm blind. >> let's see what happens. >> okay. what do i do? you know how to do this. we're going to commercial. okay. did i hit it? oh. >> willie, go ahead. >> and we're going to try this out. very nice. kellen lutz, thanks so much. >> go nat. >> more after these messages.

that's how you should think about this. >> my kids are bad eaters. so give them the vitamins. is there ever a thing as too much of a good thing? >> people think they're deficient. the opposite is also true. there are also upper limits of requirements where you take above that it could be damaging. that's important. you can look this up. it's often on the label, but you have to be careful. too much can be harmful. especially if it's the kind that is a vitamin that is retained by the body. that's vitamin a, b, or e. if you have too much of others, there's much less risk. just coming out in the urine. >> if you are taking a supplement, you recommend the latter one. >> take a name brand. you can get a pill. you can have chewies. you can have liquids. all will be fine. limit taking individual vitamins unless you have a special medical need and talk to your doctor for that. separate supplements you don't

at once and i decided to conquer both the weight and the clutter challenges at the same time. i was determined to change my behavior and i stuck to a diet plan and committed to donating nearly 15 bags worth of possessions. i am now living a cleaner, more streamlined life, one that i can maintain. >> good for her. >> way to go. she is here with organization guru peter walsh author of "lose the clutter lose the weight". >> peter is here to tell us how to whittle down our waistline while pairing down the waste at home. >> thank you so much. >> congratulations to you. >> thank you so much. >> such an interesting concept. i'm a complete slob. >> but you're nice and slender. >> that's not -- but i guess there are some overlaps. did you see right away when you started to lose the weight you wanted to have things in order in your house. >> absolutely. and what happened for me hoda was that on the weekends, prior to the weight loss, i would come home and worry about cleaning out closets or cleaning up counter space. >> yeah. >> doing laundry. once the clutter was sort of in
control, then i was able to really focus on myself and what was important for maintaining a healthier lifestyle. >> it can depress you, can't it? >> yeah. >> sitting in this mess, you don't have the energy to get rid of it. >> right. >> anyone anyone can relate to this. you go home, your home is cluttered kitchen is overwhelmed with stuff and the feeling is i'm zapped, don't know where to start, i'm exhausted before i even start. and having been doing this for 15 years when i help people declutter their homes, overwhelmingly they would say, there was a weight lifted off my shoulder. >> your. >> and i started making better health choices. >> what comes first the chicken or the egg? >> start losing weight and then clean your house? >> focusing on either is a mistake. it has to be a whole thing. that's what the book is about. you look at decluttering your home, week by week at the same time you look at a better meal plan, exercise, and you look at being mindful. >> we're going to show. >> some of the things you did.
