  • 00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:01,120 Hi, James.

  • Hi.

  • It seems like you walked, and then you

  • decided that you were going too slow,

  • and then you sped up to run to the chair.

  • That's my life.

  • Yes.

  • That's my life, mostly.

  • I go, oh, no, I'm doing this too slowly.

  • I have to--

  • Really?

  • --just yeah, get there quicker.

  • It's not that long of a walk.

  • When I did your show, which was really fun, by the way--

  • I recently did your show-- and it's a long walk,

  • and it's down steps, which is awkward.

  • Have you thought of changing that?

  • Well, no, because what we want to do

  • is have a show where we wanted our show-- when

  • we started our show, we were like how can we be different?

  • And we were like, everybody walks from a curtain.

  • Let's just have them come through the audience

  • so that we're all in it together.

  • That's what we do.

  • I see.

  • OK.

  • OK.

  • No, I think it's a great idea.

  • And then the audience gets so excited

  • because, you know, you get to, like, high five

  • them on the way down and stuff.

  • Yeah, well, that's why we did it,

  • just to try and be a little different in whatever way we

  • could.

  • I like it.

  • And then you sit with another guest,

  • and it's fun, because you interact together.

  • It was great.

  • Yeah.

  • Well, that's-- again, same thing.

  • We were like, oh, well, how can we just stand out

  • in some way in the mass of, like, shows

  • that are on in the middle of the night?

  • Do you know what I mean?

  • Why did we pick that picture to show of me?

  • Why-- why is that?

  • You look great.

  • Yeah, well, clearly, I'm doing a fish thing,

  • but I don't know why.

  • Well, I can't remember, but you were a terrific guest.

  • We really felt like-- and I mean this.

  • I don't mean this in any way sort of sycophantically.

  • I genuinely felt like it was a real thing for our show

  • to have somebody who we all just kind of respect for so long.

  • And we've only been on the air about four years.

  • And for you to come by our show meant a great deal

  • to everybody.

  • Oh, James, that's sweet.

  • I mean it.

  • I mean it.

  • It's like it's a thing.

  • It's a thing for us.

  • It is.

  • Well, thank you.

  • Well, I think that you're unbelievably talented.

  • I mean, so you've been on four years.

  • It'll be four years in March.

  • And before that, like, I don't think-- like,

  • I wasn't aware of you, because you were living in London,

  • and you were doing plays, a lot of theater.

  • And I saw you sing, and dance, and do--

  • I was like, oh, my god, this guy is amazing.

  • So I thought you do very, very well right away.

  • Did you think the show would be received that--

  • Oh, god, no.

  • No.

  • No, I thought-- no, I wouldn't-- we came here, my wife and I,

  • our son was three, our daughter was 12 weeks when we moved

  • here.

  • And I said to my wife--

  • I was like, we're not buying anything.

  • We rented furniture.

  • We rented a couch, everything in our house.

  • Because I was like, I'm going to get fired.

  • And the only thing worse than getting fired

  • will be getting fired and then left

  • with a couch that we've got to get rid of somehow,

  • because we'll be on the first flight back to London,

  • just going, well, that was a disaster.

  • So I genuinely meant that.

  • It was completely real.

  • When did you start buying things?

  • At what point did you realize, oh, the show's doing very well?

  • About a year ago.

  • No.

  • 00:03:00,000 --> 00:03:01,120 No.

  • Well, we bought a house about a year ago.

  • And then it was like, OK, if we bought a house,

  • we should probably buy a couch.

  • And buy furniture, yeah.

  • And so you've been on four years.

  • And then how many more years do you have on your contract?

  • About a year and a half.

  • And do you think you'll renew, or do you

  • want to do other things?

  • I don't know.

  • It might not be my choice.

  • I'm not sure.

  • I still might get fired.

  • I think that every day.

  • That's what I mean.

  • I came in slow.

  • And I thought, if I come in slow,

  • they might go, oh, that's the wrong guy.

  • So if I speed to the seat, I'll be sat down,

  • and then it'll be too awkward.

  • I see.

  • So I don't know.

  • I'm not sure.

  • I've no idea how long we'll do it for.

  • We'll see.

  • We'll see how it goes.

  • And you're going back to London to be in Cats, the movie,

  • right?

  • Yes, I'm doing the film of the musical, Cats.

  • That's amazing.

  • And it's a lot of people.

  • Who's in Cats?

  • It's Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Idris Elba, Rebel Wilson,

  • Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, and then me.

  • So you may be fired.

  • Yeah, yeah.

  • I mean, I go tomorrow.

  • I might be back here by Saturday.

  • I fly tomorrow night to start filming it.

  • Wow, that's amazing.

  • And have you seen Cats, like, a lot?

  • Is it pretty much sticking to the play?

  • Yes, kind of.

  • It's still people being cats.

  • Yeah.

  • And how have you prepared for that?

  • Well, I'm very much--

  • 00:04:31,330 --> 00:04:32,800 I'm like Daniel Day Lewis.

  • I immerse the character.

  • You know what I mean?

  • So what have you done?

  • I've just been living as a cat.

  • I don't use the bathroom.

  • I have a litter tray.

  • And then I just--

  • the whole time.

  • That's it.

  • I see.

  • That's been me the whole time.

  • I can't wait to see the movie.

  • Yeah.

  • Well, I don't know if it'll get better

  • than what I just did there.

  • That's probably--

  • They could take that and use it, because that was good.

  • Yeah, right.

  • Oh, yeah.

  • I wish I had a little laser thing.

  • Because I would make you run around.

  • All right.

  • Oh.

  • No, I don't have one.

  • No?

  • No.

  • But that's how in it I am.

  • Wow, you really--

  • You said there was one.

  • And I thought they can add it in post.

  • OK.

  • Oh, my god.

  • Oh, I love you.

  • All right, we'll be right back.

  • Hi, I'm Andy.
