11:01 pm
from the little east went to the juniors but when devil hills were on the set of a.b.c.'s new sitcom back in the game and i would start a show one of hollywood's most respected names one of the guys to james caan he plays terry the canon gannon sr a single dad was welcomed as a strange daughter terry jr and her young son back into his life terry jones played by maggie lawson will leave her in a little while why did you go to tell if you are a movie star here star well here's what happened when. i don't get the girl anyone right you know obviously i can't. like fight prehistoric animals with a short you know giant ones and can jump from building the building and i get nauseous hanging from a wire so what's left yeah so i did it i did yeah i did that for a little while i didn't like that right. i liked it there was some things i didn't like about it. but that was all executive stuff. but. the bone and then i was
11:02 pm
broken like hard times on my make a monkey eat red peppers right. but i've been doing movies and the truth is it's just not making the movies that you know that i like to do i mean i've done a couple but like all of a sudden you do in movies like they asked me what was the name of that other movie that i should call it was called the rent and what was the movie before that that was also called the rent you know well i get a call. from my agents and they said. to me the coen brothers. they won't this. dish comedy thing is yeah and they won't feel they're not going to do it unless you do it the coen brothers really do that well to come well i got to read that so read it's pretty funny but i look in the column brothers and i didn't say to comment about those insta columns brothers so i find out that's the way these guys make a living they mispronounce they they. but it's
11:03 pm
a very good guys and they're very very funny so i make fun of them so i and i met with them and i know him i know them both from vegas and other places and i mean they're both among a home they're great and funny and. and then i you know i have two young kids still stay home and i found it to be really fun and creative it's a great cast. of characters which we rated on set yeah he was not a good ballplayer like no he was he was like the second coming of sandy koufax actually he was already like you know he dragged me out of the league and was on but it sounds like maybe but i just thought it was a so post she called her junior because i raised like a boy her mom died when she was eight and i raised it just you know baseball and all these wealthy this is just not a great dad and. she went on to college and become an all american softball player
11:04 pm
and she got married had a kid they split up now the kids ten years old she hates her dad because june you know i quote julia. and i mean to the point where she goes. well i had my first period you told me to walk it off you know. so everything was funny so she was raised that way then she's forced to live with me now with the kid. because there's nowhere else and i'm playing a pretty horrifying kind of person which i always probably easy right how does a horrifying kind of person. keep up as the head of a weekly sit com. what i mean is what motivates you i like you i sort of like archie too i sort of like him yeah you wind up like oh he's not like it's not that he's angry he's like impatient he has a good time you know he's not and when he does he when he feels something that's it . apologetically or it lovingly it's a sign of weakness to him so he does it privately and quietly without express
11:05 pm
himself well he does but it's kind of like a sign of jobs. that he has a pension and he's a hustler you know. the place cards how do you view him when you play someone like that to you i think he'll larry. me when you go look for well the the what in the lousy need to do is to be very very funny and long with you know with robin his brother mark of this great writing staff there they're not seriously rob belongs there is cena people walking the streets and this guy ok they're nuts and. the uber is great so we figure out like. from anger it doesn't there's not a lot of human to call and there's not a lot of room for transition from anger to be eleven but for a guy who hasn't got time for. can you say. i love. a good time for people. and it's like got anything to say don't bother talking to
11:06 pm
me so there's a lot of humor that comes out of sarcastic humor that comes out of impatience that wouldn't come out of anger you know another baseball two yeah i mean this is certainly a far cry from the bed was because was a hey i'm not doing bad those bases ok no so you know we see these kids that we have who they're pretty good right larry it is not. one gene that lettuces them in any one of them they will never win if they scored two runs we're going to a party. so i mean the point is it's not about this team getting any better. they will never win in the life of this is to share in just what they are there are these kids are like little kids that we had to do did not act this except for my my grandson was the best script and he's in. the placement. do you like the images the tough guy guy that suit with the godfather established you the jewish kid with all
11:07 pm
those that say that because it might make money be in a time when i just push the a bundle so it's good to be taking it in the right cities. know the you'd like that tough guy image you know i mean what your parents are eyes that way a lot yeah well i mean that you know fortunately god follows the success you know and on fortunately you know every script i got you know they're after for a few years of the war and twenty people dead by page eleven i think at the you know i didn't get the script but. no i mean i went on to sing and dance people wait they don't relate to a great movie for the boys yeah could a little better movie i guess you'd have been it could have been a better it was a good movie a day for cock that a little bit but it was one enjoy them you had a good time. so you've done a lot of very clearly kissing by a tap dance and you know a lot of that when they think of you they think jane you cause you made such an impression right i mean it was like what is it really evaluating because i get you
11:08 pm
know i still get the best tables when i walk and people are afraid to say anything to me they say watch out you can wind up a nice really good moving a little less sunday at fordham university mariel cuomo and i did a seminar for the law school of the show the godfather and then a discussion about the godfather a movie that mary o. appreciated technically i thought it was brilliantly done the music and everything and he hated the movie really because he was still the stereotype to tell us the story that is that italians have suffered as americans from that movie react to that as we think he feels you know well we're going to join his parade think are you going to go to home with what he's talking about the truth of the matter is that if you had a life i mean obviously when you do a picture about the mob it's about the mob and to make it at the taping a movie you know you're not going to have i'm planting flowers and selling laura fides murda and you know i can see where he's coming from kind of i mean the truth
11:09 pm
under surely is not the truth about the success of the godfather has to sholay do with francis coppola i mean i remember i was with evans on them when i would talk augusta gravitational of that francis and and the reason i say that is francis is not a brooklyn that. francis is a mediterranean and his father was lead flutist for tuscany you know they come from music and art and food and wine i mean you know what i mean and the kids were the same way they were in cutting rooms when i didn't know about any wise guy stuff used to further but there in lies there in lies the success because everything was done for the sake of family you know because question i got to go higher it was not a real horse eighty people were killed at one of the old dollars was a real. nobody cared who died because everything was done you know what i mean it was yeah it was a single feel he should be told he did this to his sister that's ok this guy did this to his mother you know what i mean joy of course i was at some point. and you
11:10 pm
see that in effect you know people don't tell you not at all as a matter of fact. i'm very french ninety percent of my friends went on in the home ninety five problem ninety let's get this right about eighty seven and ok ok but did they they. they have never heard that. this is certain and the sopranos follow that he did well as a little coarser i mean you know the godfather was still close when it's a great time saying i mean the sopranos is a little course you're in it's in it's. the crimes with head here if you look at the years there's such a word we invented it i just came up with it but. the petty things and the godfather was there was more like you talk about senators and you know they were all involved what was that like for you a young guy great role for you to work with brando's chinos that you know was scared to death he told me but we will i mean listen anybody that was my age or you
11:11 pm
know even a low they say they're pretty that brando didn't you know didn't mean anything or wasn't the most you know looked up to guy you know when we were working at acting the line you know he was he was the guy that like to work with he was a riot i mean. as you want to know with him and then he did i said for some reason he started laughing up in the middle to see just or to laugh and i call him on a phone a lot. so we had a great time but the first you know when i first met him it was you know i remember we had this. francis for the first reading we took this big restaurant up in the bronx spread wall italian food was like and then and we read you know so al myself to follow and. read the what the head of the table in the hallway down the end of the day was francis and every all the other characters you know in sterling gable was all the way down. in france you could see we all probably started to lead and all you'd hear. on sunday you know. and i don't you
11:12 pm
know and al gore. is funny and you can see fans are starting to lean fully called him a freak of word for. he's found that they're all of a sudden the story gave them a light why did you want everybody to throw up one quick thing before we break the death scene of sonny yeah how long did that take to shoot. that scene in the car how long a day i mean one day oh my god you can't do that over again you know how many times . it was you did to the one hundred forty seven big ships not like these says she squibs they have today i mean they blow it so they all have a shoulder jack and they should have about one hundred forty seven on me too of five thousand all over the place now how many times you think you would shoot that for years and yeah i mean now i wouldn't done it at all i mean it's kind of scared me because the guy you want to see the squibs they will like. like
11:13 pm
a brass casing they heard them blow up holy hands like they showed him and he jack they sort of went to the seats and shot him into the car to build a bond two out of the car she had to be in we had to choreograph where your hands were and all of that the only reason i did it was because there were girls on the set. otherwise i would have said and if i don't know what i'm made to i'm going to make money i was in a screw you francis i had done it right now we'll be right back with the star of that in the game on a.b.c. changed on. the air a. very sorry to take. once again on here by that time that that her big hair.

11:18 pm
to be the best in the world if i was about their one of the but. your family and your friends have to be the most important thing because no matter what success you just achieve no matter what heights you achieve inevitably and this happen to everybody there's a slide back which that they have which changes from person to person but the people who put all their eggs so to speak in that one best who live and die and breathe that crap because that's what it is inevitably those people when they hit that slide they are the ones that hurt themselves they drug died a big press they commit stupid crimes because there's too much of it is too much importance self important it's meaningless it's not meaningless i mean you try you you can only do what you can do where you never let it go. i guess that's one way of putting a but don't don't make it your life i mean you gotta look at what you have you know and not what you don't have let's play a game of if you only knew

11:23 pm
a machine get it done get it done right we got time we got these occasions i got to go got to go and sometimes you forget to just pause and think about a scene and the characters and where they're coming from and who they are and jimmy is so great and that i call him jimmy he's usually all we do is put to good use for this interview. but we pause we actually take he he comes on set and we sit down and we talk about the scene and it's really nice because you usually don't get the time to do that and i love i love how he works and i feel like i've learned so much from them and i feel like so much about our relationship sort of came out of you know time will do that. the runaway would be really just grab my hand like i love you. every day. he's married yes yes what have you done. i just well thank you still running but i just came off of a show that's on usa i did for the last eight seasons which show it's called psych
