Bald Bryan is back, and there’s a busy show up ahead. The opening news stories revolve around cases of domestic abuse. First, a brief discussion about the tragic homicides in New Mexico. Then, Teresa plays several clips from Mel Gibson’s latest leaked audio. Adam ‘[thinks] this is good for Mel. He’s now officially insane. All the things he’s said before are now seen through the prism of a madman.’ Teresa asks if there’s anything more maddening than arguing with someone who doesn’t participate in the argument. Later they surmise that Mel may be on human growth hormones.
Larry Miller comes into the studio, and Adam asks his opinions on the Mel Gibson issue. Larry suggests that Mel is one of the most popular celebrities in the world, he should have juts gotten on a boat with eight girls and ridden off into the sunset. The group listens to more of the audio, and Teresa points out further drama involving Oksana’s dentist who didn’t report the alleged domestic abuse. To round out Larry’s visit, he and Adam play a round of Hypotethetical Road Trips.
Then director Jay Duplass sits down. He talks about his new film Cyrus, and how he and his brother originally wrote the script together. Adam wants to know more about producing the film, and Jay goes on to talk about having one of his previous films going to Sundance. Both John C. Reily and Jonah Hill (stars of the film) were massive fans of he and his brother’s previous work, and so the film just came together. Jay talks about his early stages breaking into Hollywood, and since their film is mostly improvised, he and Adam discuss ‘the purity of the first take.’
Teresa compliments the art direction of the film, and also the costumes. Jay talks about shooting the film on a new high-end digital camera, and suggests that actors can tell their productions are filmed in a different ways than most movies. Jay says, ‘it’s just about continuing doing what we like to do,’ and talks about his early influence from The Coen Brothers.
In the last part of the news, Teresa talks about a couple celebrities dealing with prison time. Roman Polanski has recently been released from house arrest, and is free to travel anywhere in the world, so long as he’s not in a country with an expedition agreement with the US. Adam says we need to enforce our laws, and doesn’t understand why we can’t just jump into France or Switzerland and go grab him. Jay points out the Manson murders, and Teresa notes how your allegiance starts to shift. Another news story deals with Lindsay Lohan concerned about her upcoming jail time, and also some GLAAD complaints against The View. The final stories involves Harvey Pekar’s recent death, and Jay admits he’s obsessed with Paul Giamatti, the actor who portrayed him in the film American Splendor. Adam says maybe he’ll appear in Jay’s next film, and wishes him well in the future.
