definetyly dumped stuff in and there's plenty to criticize rivers him for. the man wears a mask when you're a new york real estate grifter with mob ties, six feet, he's a little bit worse on the east river is basically your he has violated that multiple filing cabinet we're not going to see trump's times. tax returns until they're accidentally brought up in a fishing net. real space hog, jason.

luther is often sort of just working -- a lot of this, yeah a lot of working the chin for old luther >> yeah. >> seth: and then i believe you were just listing the other characters that work with luther those were just his colleagues >> yeah, that's a lot of my impression work, is just me saying the other names of people on the show. >> seth: well, it makes it very clear to the person that you'r brett butler, i just yell at quentin when i do "grace under fire." >> seth: well, i think you can't do a luther and not do brett butler from "grace under fire." >> well, it's just like, "quentin, quentin go get russell at the pharmacy, quentin where is nadine? so, again, it's a lot of the other characters >> seth: do you get asked to do that one a lot >> i did it once, and then they stopped asking me. >> seth: well, that's -- >> if there is an impression i'm hiding you know how they do that on the show >> seth: oh, right, right, right. >> they email you once a week. >> seth: oh. oh, i see. like, yeah, right. they want to do an impression for each parade sketch and they'll say, "hey, do you have anything in your back

are retired now but you still work with the mets in an advisory role. how -- i assume you miss playing. do you miss it less seeing what the players had to go through this season? >> certainly certainly. with all the protocols it was a weird season. it was a tough season. i'm kind of a baseball traditionalist so seeing a dh in the national league kind of hurt a little bit. and seeing, you know, the runners start on second base and extra innings, you know, kind of was a bit of a gut punch and took a little getting used to. but i'm glad the game came back. you know, certainly glad that we had some entertainment during the tough times. so hopefully, we get back to some normalcy next year. >> seth: you famously grew up a mets fan despite the fact that you are from virginia. how does a kid in virginia end up being a fan of the new york mets because you really, you know, no offense to the mets, you could have picked anybody. then again, you were picking the mets before they had david wright, you know, so - >> rumor has it, you're somewhat of a pirate fan. so i'm not sure, you should look yourself in the mirror before
that comment >> seth: that is heartbreaking that you found that out. >> our aaa team was in norfolk, virginia, which is about a 15 minute drive from my house. and my father worked in the police department. my mother worked in a local school system. so getting a chance to go to our aaa affiliates games, my dad knew a lot of the off duty police officers that were working security so, you know, they would kind of sneak me down sometimes and take pictures with some of the players or get some autographs or give me a foul ball and i got the biggest thrill out of meeting those players. and then, a couple weeks later, turning on the tv and seeing those same players playing in the big leagues in new york. so i grew up a bit of a displaced mets fan because of our aaa team >> seth: that's certainly a nice outcome that you ended up playing for your, you know, boyhood team how old were you when you made it to the bigs >> 21. >> seth: 21 years old. so you are moving to new york for the first time and, you know, i was 27 when i moved to new york and i was overwhelmed. 21, i can't even imagine true story you did not have a suit at that time? >> 100%.
the trick was, and one of the -- a couple of the older guys, i was lucky i got caught up with a very veteran group the trick was you buy one sports coat and whether it matched or not, you just throw it over your shoulder to say you have it. so therefore, you're always in line with what the rules are, but you don't necessarily have to buy a lot to match. and at the time, i was pretty frugal you know, we went to montreal for my first road trip in the big leagues, and some of the veteran guys, mainly cliff lloyd took me out and bought me a bunch of suits to wear on the road and let me remind you, in 2004, the style was the bigger, the baggier, the better. so me walking out with this suit store with the huge monstrous mc hammer type pants, you know, it was a sight to behold and i'm glad that social media wasn't around then >> seth: yeah, that is good to know also, i think like 2004 wasn't quite mc hammer. i think cliff lloyd might've been pulling a veteran's prank on you >> possibly. possibly >> seth: no, it's 2004, hammer is huge.
this is -- you know, it's pretty cool that you are writing a book i mean, obviously, you've accomplished a lot was it harder to write a book than you thought it would be >> so i never thought i really wanted to do it. i was approached by the co-author anthony dicomo who did a fantastic job guiding me along the way. but it was therapeutic for me. you know, i think as an athlete, you never get a chance to enjoy the moment while you're doing it you know, because you are always looking forward to that next challenge or trying to get ready for the next pitcher the next night. so, you know, to be able to relive some of these memories and these are some of the best memories that i'm going to have in my life you know, and to be able to see it from other people's perspectives or hear what teammates were thinking or fans were thinking or my family was thinking at that time, you know, was pretty cool. and a quick, funny story is one of the coolest things is i got a chance to take a couple dozen family pictures, personal pictures for the middle of the book so my parents still live in virginia i'm out on the west coast. so i call my dad and mom and i say, "hey, can you send me some pictures from back in the day, i
want to go through them and get some childhood photos. so my parents being as frugal as they are, they fedex ground this thing. it comes like a week later there's four huge boxes. it's got to be tens of thousands of pictures. so going through these pictures and picking my favorites brought back so many great memories of not just baseball, but my youth and youth and growing up and playing baseball for the first time as a kid, and my grandparents who have since passed it was really cool and nostalgic to kind of go through it and piece it together. >> seth: well it's really -- it's really a nice document for, you know, the millions of fans who you meant so much to and it's really cool that you wrote it congratulations so much on the book and before you leave, i know you are still watching baseball. any predictions as we're in -- you know, entering i guess the end of first round of this crazy playoffs >> i guess since the mets and the pirates didn't quite make it to the playoffs, i will go with the easy choice and being out here in southern california, the dodgers look like they are pretty good. so that is the easy way out but i will take the dodgers. >> seth: there's nothing wrong with the easy way out. thank you so much for being here
i really appreciate it, david. >> seth, it was a pleasure thank you very much. >> seth: "the captain" will be available october 13th wherever books are sold we will be right back with miranda july ♪ ♪ not much, how about you? are you answering my text in person? i am, yeah. lol come on in. this is tech that helps you be there. the nissan altima now offering the most tech-advanced engine in its class now any order can be rewarding when you use the app. no matter how you pay, you'll be closer to earning rewards and getting more of your favorites for free. more ways to pay, more ways to get rewarded. starbucks rewards.

show miranda july. hello, miranda >> hi there, seth. >> seth: i'm so excited you're here we have been trying to have you on for a while >> yeah, i don't know if you remember we actually met once before. >> seth: i didn't think that you would remember [ laughter ] >> no, i do, i do. you were -- so you were coming out of an elevator and i was going in and you turned -- do you remember what you said to me >> seth: not - >> you said, "i love you." and then, the door shut. which -- which a lot of people might have taken the wrong way, right? like, people might have thought you meant i love your work or you're so cool, but i knew that you meant i love you. >> seth: i do. >> i know. >> seth: so can we talk about
your movie "kajillionaire? i thought it was fantastic >> thank you >> seth: it's -- it's a movie about like low -- i would say lower tier family of con men is that an accurate way of describing it? >> right, right, not very good at their job >> seth: not particularly good and, you know, i know your work over the years and as we have established, i'm a fan of it it's often autobiographical to some degree. is there any of you in this family any of you in these characters >> do you mean am i a low-level con artist >> seth: well, yeah, i guess that is what i'm getting at. >> well, i will say in the like, embarrassingly entitled punk youth that i had, there was sort of a culture of stealing and i did -- i stopped and i don't condone that i remember like a turning point for me was i was -- i was like a guest artist, visiting artist. i was 23
i probably should have been in college, not being a guest artist, but i remember kind of scoping out the room as was my habit for what i can take on the way out. like maybe a box of chalk or that video projector or something. and then, i caught myself and i suddenly realized, oh, you can either be this sort of respected artist person or you can have the box of chalk [ light laughter ] and i guess i made a choice there. >> seth: yeah, those were your two paths. and we are certainly happy with the one you picked i also -- i've read that you got this idea sort of half asleep, the idea for this film and usually, i would say most writers would tell you the ideas they get when you are half asleep, you wake up in the morning and you realize it's not a particularly good idea how quickly did you know that there was something here >> not very quickly. i just want to say that for all
the writers out there. i had to withhold judgment you know, it seemed for the better part of a year like kind of a silly idea. but, you know, the cons and what does this all mean why waste my life on this? and then, i got to the end and read it back, and it kind of punched me in the gut. and i guess at that moment, i was like, oh, maybe that is the movie. maybe that's the ride. like you're laughing, you're laughing, you're laughing, you're crying. >> seth: and this is a film that, i mean, anxiety is a real theme of this film not just the idea of an earthquake, but also financial, economic, and family anxiety, and it must be so strange so have it come out at a time -- obviously, you made it before all this happened. in this hot bed of anxiety now >> yeah. i know it's so strange that anxiety was really personal to me, and a lot of the themes, like the sensitivity to touch and just the strangeness of this lead character, old dolio is her
name, played by evan rachel wood and now, suddenly those subtle themes are like front and center like, those are not my weird things that's like the world's weird thing now. we are all old dolio >> seth: i also want to congratulate you on this monograph, this is a book about you that you had other people basically contribute i think it's like 80 people that basically talk about you was that terrifying to turn over, sort of give the keys to families and friends to tell your story >> yeah, i think i thought i would like that. you know how you secretly fear that you're a narcissist you know, like maybe you take the narcissist test online and you're like, am i? and i found out, real quick, like actually, it turns out i'm not.
like i hit think threshold immediately and just had to disassociate for most of the experience of making that book and pretend that everybody was talking about someone else and i was just maybe working for that person, making her book for her. >> seth: it must be so strange too. because obviously people are giving you materials, and then, you have to -- because part of it is you take yourself out of it, right, and then, you get this incredible reflection of somebody because i think sometimes with autobiographies, you know, you are obviously getting one person's perspective it's so multi-layered to have a bunch of people, but at the same time, you are the gate keeper. was that a weird responsibility to have? >> i think i thought it would be more accurate that way like, i was actually assigned to write about myself and everything i started to write didn't -- it didn't seem true. everything was true but it didn't add up to the truth, you know what i mean and so, even if some of my
friends are collaborating stories are like a little off or it's like just their version, somehow collectively, it's more a life >> seth: it's really wonderful, and one of my favorite, before you go, i should say that the many things you have done, one of my favorite things you ever did was an interview with rihanna, i believe in the "new york times" back in 2015. you know, i have long been enamored with rihanna. but that interview was the first time i realized truly how fun she was. was that as much fun to basically spend that time with her as it was to read? >> yes, i mean, we both are drunk with rihanna >> seth: we know yeah >> although, she was drunk with - i think i was the only one who would like nervously drunken myself i mean, i -- yeah, it mean, she's just so lovely right? >> seth: yeah. >> i'm so jealous that you really hung out with her like that >> seth: yeah, i'm just so sad it's over. and it's been over for like over a year
i'm still just like working through, that it's probably not going to happen again. [ light laughter ] >> i remember her assistant -- like, i had to do some last minute fact checking or something, and her assistant signed off saying something like, you know, "see you around" or something and for the whole like next week, i was like, ready. like they were going to call me to hang out. and i was like, telling everyone, i don't know, we have -- you know, she said, "see you around." so that's -- you know, it's probably in the next few days. and then, someone pointed out, like, that is just what people - that's like bye. >> seth: yeah, because that was 2015 i feel like those plans would have probably firmed up by now >> i mean, i guess, yeah, no, you're right >> seth: miranda, it's been so lovely to have you here. the film is great. congratulations on the book as well, and i would like to close the way we began by saying i love you >> thank you [ light laughter ]
