8:07 am
good look. >> you have an impression the people around him know this and that he agrees and then he goes off. >> he doesn't have a lot of people around him. that is the thing. he has his family. he has sort of a core of enablers and the people he listenses to closely are let's let trump be trump. corey allow want dlewandowski g of that. if trump believese unplugged he can be at all times there is an audience for it. i think the opinion it's getting a little bit tired. not only the people around him but people viewing this. he is not discharging sort of new information about himself that help people learn this is someone they can conceive as their president. >> he has a big opportunity today. he has a big speech coming in ohio. a chance for him to pivot, they say. >> yeah. the speech is on foreign policy.
8:08 am
story and any republicans that might defect this week. i mean, there has been this vicious cycle of distraction that you can almost count on day-to-day. and, you know, one of the things you hear over and over again from republicans is he needs to focus on hillary clinton. he needs to talk about what he is going to do. this noise just overtakes everything and it becomes, you know, its own entity. >> from some of the reporting talk about with his terrorism platform is a lot what we have already he heard, but specifically focusing in on immigration and terrorism, mixing those two topics. in some ways, has any of the reporting to this point spoken to his policies and backed them up? >> well, i mean, what he hasn't provided is a lot of specifics. i mean, we know that he wants to build a wall, that he wants to i guess what his speech today from
8:09 am
to it, is that it's going to be a crack down on immigration from countries that there is terrorism that we think might be going on. >> that already exists. >> it already exists and also how is that all going to work? i mean, again the details aren't really there. >> what do you make of the manafort story? >> it's another web of the intrigue around russia around, you know, trump's perhaps close ties to the kremlin. it looks kind of shady. any time you have 12.7 million -- >> ties to the kremlin. >> close ties might be a little strong. i will say this. i think a lot of certain fondness and interest and praise for vladimir putin, his top campaign aide having these, you know, these relationships. i mean, it's part of the thing that the clinton campaign can certainly make a lot of hay out. >> a slit from the traditional republican position, most of his

8:35 am
i think sitting in that audience might be a slight intense sort of experience but if it calms down at any point, i will. >> let's just say this movie, it was so frightening to me and you were so good add it. >> thank you very much. >> i think how you nailed the accents and mindset you had to get and looking at your background, seems nothing would prepare for you that. how did you nail it so as well? >> mike german who helped write the script along with our director. mike is a former fbi agent who was on the cover of -- about 10 years and so i was able to pick his brains why he went into that job which is something that is always scary and something i wouldn't do and what life is like. it's actually like where in films, we are sort of used to
8:36 am
you're the worst agent in the world. you have your intellect and your ability to sort of talk your way out of a situation is really all you have. >> and he is a good actor. >> charlie is right. it is called acting. a great scene in the movie where your group confronts an interracial couple and i was wondering how they would get out of that. what did you learn from mike german about that situation? >> what is your first priority as an undercover agent? is it to what are you there to do? ed, no, actually, your main priority is not only should you not be involved in a crime about that, you have the responsibility to prevent that crime from taking place. despite the fact that that would, you know, sort of possibly -- >> what you're trying to do. >> exactly. so it's an incredibly just complex world and the amount of stuff -- like, when mike was doing this, it was early about the early '90s and technology

leg and had to flip the tape over every 90 minutes. it's an amazing world. >> white extremists aren't also classified as terrorists in the common perception here. why did you think this was an important thing to connect for people? >> i think that is really important. i know that terrorism -- my dad is northern irish and grew up there during the troubles so i always have that awareness it comes in all shapes and sizes. stigmatized a certain group of people about terrorists was awful for me. so the chance to make the film. this was around the time, i believe as well, when i was reading the script, dylann roof happened. >> the shooter in charleston. >> right. i think the high ups of official and to refer to that as terrorism when, obviously, to me which, obviously, it is. so that seemed to be one of the
8:38 am
was seemed a very good point to make. >> but you would call this terrorism? >> absolutely. any time you're hurting somebody with any sort of political ideology. i think you could use broader terms in terms of just like any act of violence toward somebody else is still terroring somebody but that is probably not what most people mean by it. >> was it a difficult role fo scenes you had to do. >> it's horrible to say those words. i found i would, like, run up to the people i was throwing these slurs at between takes and say, i'm so sorry, i'm so sorry. those words have power for a reason. yeah, they feel very bad to say. >> do you have a means of balancing film and theater? >> i think i just like to get my hands on as much as i possibly
8:39 am
i just closed a show in new york last night. >> last night? >> yes. >> whoa. >> which was great. and so i've been -- i think film is where i grew up and i'll always love being there and i think theater -- every time i'm in theater, i feel i come away and being a better actor for it and feel i learn something every time. >> where does "harry potter" sit with you? are you sick of people talking about "harry potter"? do you embrace him? >> i think people expect me to be sick of it but when people come out and say what a part of their childhood i am, and all that, to me, i was saying i love "sim "simps "simpsons" growing up. >> you had voice work there? >> i have. that is when i made it. the fact i might occupy that space in somebody else's childhood is really special and, yeah, no by having a great time on the film so it's not like i'm asked to think about something --
8:40 am
international identity wherever you go, people think of "harry potter"? >> yes, i think that is probably fair to say. >> you're part of the world. >> it didn't reach, no. which is really impressive when you think about it. right. no, there is -- actually, probably new york is one of the calmer place for me. everyone ignores you. >> what voice on the simpsons" did you do? >> playing from twilight. >> let me hear it. >> no, it was my original voice. the second time i had not practiced my american accent in ages and i did it and it was probably really bad. >> you nailed that accent. >> thank you. >> welcome back. don't be a stranger. the movie opens this friday in theaterses. ahead, we will show you how one place filled has all of the answers. no computer needed here.
