Bill Holderman and Aaron Sims. 11 00:01:15,000 --> 00:01:28,000 Then I go to New York City for the premiere of the film in New York. I go on the red carpet. It's just I can't believe how much I freaking... 12 00:01:28,000 --> 00:01:44,000 Oh my God, it was amazing. I just can't even talk about it so much. You've probably saw some of my coverage and the behind this scene stuff on socials, on my Instagram and Twitter, at K-Mac Music and Facebook and all. 13 00:01:44,000 --> 00:02:00,000 It was just a dream.

And did you know that he released a album called Heartbeat and let it roll in '86 and '89 and then his cover of the song Heartbeat actually peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100. 16 00:02:43,000 --> 00:03:01,000 So Don Mother Johnson has a Billboard Hot 100 top five hit. That's how awesome he is. I'm sorry, I'm so excited just because this was so freaking like it was just a dream. It was just a dream. 17 00:03:01,000 --> 00:03:25,000 I mean, except it wasn't a dream, you know what I mean? It was actually very real. So in any event, let's just get right into it. We're going to start with the red carpet coverage of me in New York City at the AMC Lincoln Square 13 or book club the next chapter. 18 00:03:25,000 --> 00:03:45,000 Kyle McMahon, I Heart Radio live in New York City at the premiere of book club the next chapter.

Are you guys excited to see it? 22 00:04:17,000 --> 00:04:31,000 I did see it the other day and I interviewed the cast and I absolutely loved it, which I feel like I'm not really the demo typical for it, but I was hysterical the entire time. I love it. 23 00:04:31,000 --> 00:04:40,000 I'm so excited to see it. I really am. First of all, it's thrilling. I haven't been in New York in a while. I moved back to Florida. So coming to New York, coming to a premiere, like living in New York 24 00:04:40,000 --> 00:04:53,000 day after the COVID and everything I'm still scarred from is just thrilling and to be able to see like my heroes, my icons in a few minutes to roll down the red carpet is pretty fucking fantastic. 25 00:04:53,000 --> 00:04:54,000 How about for you? 26 00:04:54,000 --> 00:05:03,000 Very excited. Big fan of all these icons. I'm excited to be with you. I got something in my eyes. 27 00:05:03,000 --> 00:05:13,000 And so if you could take any celebrity on a tour of Italy, who would you who would you guys pick? 28 00:05:13,000 --> 00:05:28,000 I don't know. I don't know. J.Lo. She's fun. Yeah, JLo. Although I might be a little jealous the whole time of her sick body, but maybe it'll inspire me. 29 00:05:28,000 --> 00:05:38,000 Well, I wasn't I wasn't Dubai for the big Beyonce crazy opening and I felt like Beyonce and Jay Z know how to travel right. They look whatever they're doing with their 30 00:05:38,000 --> 00:05:46,000 entourage. Definitely a secret service down pat like they're a fabulous group of travel wins. The kids and everything the mom's told you. 31 00:05:46,000 --> 00:05:51,000 And so what's next for both of you?

Let's talk to her. 35 00:06:17,000 --> 00:06:29,000 You're here New York City for the premiere. What's it feel like? Is it like a relief for you or is it like a weight off your shoulders or I think it is quite surreal. 36 00:06:29,000 --> 00:06:39,000 I think that when I leave here today I'm going to have to pinch myself to see whether it was real or not. I came here from London so it's quite amazing to be a New Yorker. 37 00:06:39,000 --> 00:06:57,000 You all can be at my first premiere for a film that I've been in. So yeah amazing. I love that. And so you are from London. You filmed in Italy. Now you're at the premiere in New York. It's kind of like your first film is like a big whirlwind. 38 00:06:57,000 --> 00:07:01,000 It is absolutely absolutely. Very multicultural. 39 00:07:01,000 --> 00:07:10,000 And how about the level of talent that the film that you're in with, like you can't have better teachers. What was that like? 40 00:07:10,000 --> 00:07:22,000 It was quite surreal honestly. I think I couldn't have wished for more. I think the future me will look back and think wow how did that happen. That's insane. 41 00:07:22,000 --> 00:07:34,000 Being on set with them it was just a dream. I love that. And finally what's next for you? What can we expect next? 42 00:07:34,000 --> 00:07:46,000 Well at the moment I'm actually writing my first feature film which I plan to direct as well. And I've got some interesting meetings and things in the pipeline. 43 00:07:46,000 --> 00:07:54,000 We'll keep on the lookout for everything that you're doing. Thank you so much. I appreciate it. Congratulations. You as well. 44 00:07:54,000 --> 00:08:09,000 Right. That was grace. So next up on the red carpet is the one and only. Don Johnson. He stars in the film.

And it's a lot of fun. I talked to Jane and the ladies last week. 47 00:08:30,000 --> 00:08:41,000 I told them I feel like they're having more fun because we were talking about she was talking about aging and I said I feel like you guys had way more fun making this film than I've had in my life. 48 00:08:41,000 --> 00:08:56,000 Was it fun for you as well? Yeah but I make no mistake about it. It was work. These ladies work there. You know what's up. I mean they it was not the weather was unkind sometimes. 49 00:08:56,000 --> 00:09:07,000 And a little challenging on the heat level but they they're all amazing. They're amazing. And you know when I write here young actors complain I look at these. 50 00:09:07,000 --> 00:09:24,000 For ladies and I go. You know shut up man. Shut up and take a lesson you know. And finally for you you know I like that in a bit of a way it's reversed. I feel like women are typically always made as like the the eye candy. 51 00:09:24,000 --> 00:09:35,000 The you know that sort of thing where you you got to play that in this film was that fun for you to to be you know arm candy and with this cat to be arm candy and Rome with Jane Fond. 52 00:09:35,000 --> 00:09:41,000 Okay.

I can't believe I've now interviewed her twice in a week. This is insane. And Candace Bergen. I mean just this and this is just an incredible experience here on the red carpet. 70 00:12:58,000 --> 00:13:11,000 At the premiere of Book Club the next chapter out in theaters from focus features. So I'm going to head in and see the film once again on the big screen this time. 71 00:13:11,000 --> 00:13:26,000 I'm going to be watching a movie with Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda and Candace Bergen and Mary Steenberg and Ted Danson and Carol Cade and you know all these amazing, amazing creative people. 72 00:13:26,000 --> 00:13:35,000 And so many legends. So so I don't know what to say but I got to go. All right. Love you all. 73 00:13:35,000 --> 00:13:50,000 How amazing is that? It was absolutely. Oh my god. The energy was insane. The talent. I'm like and then I went to the party afterwards. You know that we did the premiere after the red carpet in New York, which was so cool. 74 00:13:50,000 --> 00:14:02,000 So many of their friends were out to support them. It was like a who's who of you know classic Hollywood. Then the after party was beautiful. 75 00:14:02,000 --> 00:14:14,000 Absolutely beautiful. Tavern on the green. It was just top notch. You know really a lot of it was I would say Italy theme because you know the film takes place in Italy. 76 00:14:14,000 --> 00:14:36,000 And by the way, if you are unaware, go see book club, the next chapter in theaters right now. It is obviously a sequel to book club, which came out in 2018 written and directed by Bill written by Bill Holderman and Aaron Sims directed by Bill Holderman who you know they were the team that worked on book club. 77 00:14:36,000 --> 00:14:47,000 And it continues their story so you know these four best friends take their book club on the road to Italy for a fun girls trip that they you know never got to have and now they're going to have it. 78 00:14:47,000 --> 00:15:03,000 And then things go a little bit crazy and and you know their vacation turns into kind of a cross country trip. It really is so much fun. It's hysterical. It's got heart. It's uplifting. It's heartwarming. 79 00:15:03,000 --> 00:15:26,000 And I said this to Jane, which you'll hear you know these actors in their 70s and 80s. I think had more fun filming this movie than I have had in my entire life combined like they are living it up as they should and setting the you know standard for everybody else. 80 00:15:26,000 --> 00:15:37,000 So I only hope that I can be half as fun as they are when I'm that age if I'm lucky enough to even get to that age who knows. 81 00:15:37,000 --> 00:15:55,000 But in any event it's a great film it's something I would take my mom to you know had if she is past but uh but it's something I you know it's like that kind of film that I could go take her to the movies have a great time pay for her tickets get her you know whatever she wanted a glass of wine or whatever she doesn't drink. 82 00:15:55,000 --> 00:16:06,000 But whatever I see whatever she wanted you know get a big thing a popcorn and some snacks and just laugh and have a great fun heartwarming time it's that kind of film. 83 00:16:06,000 --> 00:16:16,000 Go see it. It is the antidote to all of the craziness going on in the world. All right. So let's take a break. 84 00:16:16,000 --> 00:16:31,000 And then we're going to just jump right into the interviews with the you know the sit down interviews with the ladies and the filmmakers all right here we go be back in a minute. 85 00:16:31,000 --> 00:16:42,000 Thank you for hanging in there and allowing those fine advertisers to pay our bill so I can continue to bring you amazing exclusive content. 86 00:16:42,000 --> 00:17:07,000 I love you you know that and I can't thank you enough for listening and supporting the show and some of you watch exclusively just the videos and some of you just read the blog some of you listen to the show by itself and and do all the other you know I appreciate everything that you do the show grows every week because of you and I can't thank you enough for that. 87 00:17:07,000 --> 00:17:23,000 All right. So without further ado let's do my sit down interviews will start with the behind the scenes power houses bill Holderman the director and co writer and Aaron his co writing partner. 88 00:17:23,000 --> 00:17:28,000 Thank you both Aaron and Bill so much for speaking with me I really appreciate it. 89 00:17:28,000 --> 00:17:51,000 Hello Carl of course so I talk to the ladies yesterday which was as hysterical and fun as I'm sure you are well aware and and the film is so great what you and Aaron and Bill you both wrote it together bill you directed it what for you why did you decide to come back. 90 00:17:51,000 --> 00:17:58,000 Oh my gosh well I mean it's a tough to come back. 91 00:17:58,000 --> 00:18:19,000 I think honestly the experience of the first movie and working with these women and seeing their friendship grow and develop off screen on screen and to have the privilege to go back into that and work with them again there's there was no version where we weren't taking advantage. 92 00:18:19,000 --> 00:18:34,000 But we were not going to do another one unless we felt like we came up with an idea that we were actually genuinely excited about and that could be its own movie and sort of push push the series the franchise. 93 00:18:34,000 --> 00:18:44,000 We really want to make something that we were proud of and I think all the women did as well so like the whole thing was it was an incredible experience. 94 00:18:44,000 --> 00:19:08,000 I mean how do you turn that down. I love that and I heard I was told from Candace I believe that it was her idea to make it in Italy is that that's a fact and the thing is she came up with the idea before the first movie even came out. 95 00:19:08,000 --> 00:19:37,000 And the story goes Aaron was on a flight with Mary Candace and Jane and they were going to Cinemacon in 2018 to promote the first movie and no one knew if the first movie is going to do anything let alone enough business to warrant a sequel but on that flight they decided you know what we have to make a sequel it was so fun to make the first one and you know where we should go I think we should go to Italy and those two things were put out there and I can't say we've got to go to Italy we have to sing that tomorrow and then we're going to have to run at some point and then we can't run. 96 00:19:37,000 --> 00:19:49,000 So we're going to walk and I was like okay got off the plane I'm like we're making a sequel yeah going to Italy and then you know it was all like kind of a joke but it was not a joke. 97 00:19:49,000 --> 00:20:06,000 What you know I'm trying to think how to say this delicately you both and this is not a bad thing at all that's a stereo you both I was excited actually you both are you are not so you're writing about. 98 00:20:06,000 --> 00:20:14,000 I'm writing about women of a certain age obviously neither of you seem to be at that place yet. 99 00:20:14,000 --> 00:20:27,000 I'm saying you know it's I love that you have have written this you know about people that are not you you know I'm saying. 100 00:20:27,000 --> 00:20:32,000 Yeah of course how did you that was probably the way I should have opened with that. 101 00:20:32,000 --> 00:20:50,000 How do we get in the minds of older people well here's the thing I that I think is really important I think that a lot of times and I think as a society we think at a certain point in life everyone just becomes homogenized and they're just older and the truth is it's not true at all. 102 00:20:50,000 --> 00:21:19,000 All of everything that makes you an individual and unique when you're in your teens and in your 20s and in your 30s doesn't go away and for us it's not thinking about oh let's write a story for older people it's let's write the characters that are very authentic and very human that are still going through the things that we all go through that it just happens to be that society ignores the fact that people after a certain point are still going through them you know so it's for us it's like it's we're tapping into it. 103 00:21:19,000 --> 00:21:31,000 It's we're tapping into something that maybe it doesn't seem like it because we're not at that age but it's very much experiences and it's very human what they're going through and and we can relate to that part for. 104 00:21:31,000 --> 00:21:48,000 I mean I think how crazy it is is we all you know if we're lucky we still have our parents you have grandparents and what are we saying we're saying these are not people saying that they're not like people with like the right to have a fun exciting life and be valued just as they were when they were 40 or 30 or whatever it is. 105 00:21:48,000 --> 00:22:16,000 And guess what we're all going to be 65 and 75 if we're lucky so I don't want the future to be whatever people say it's supposed to be I want to be Jane Fonda in Italy eating gelato on a movie set you know whatever I know not everybody's going to be on movie set but you can do whatever you want to do if you put yourself out there and I think that's that's cool for us to be looking forward and to like 106 00:22:16,000 --> 00:22:45,000 convince people that there's excitement ahead I love it you got to chat with them you can't tell us they're not the most interesting and interested people that I mean they're amazing and they're not apologizing for their age and neither should we exactly yeah I love that I love the answer I love the film and I love that Jane was saying you know at 85 she's had more fun you know in the last 20 years than she did in the prior 20 so I I love that and I love that this film does that I can't wait to see what I'm doing. 107 00:22:45,000 --> 00:22:52,000 I can't wait for the third chapter thank you both so much thank you so much have a great day you as well. 108 00:22:52,000 --> 00:22:55,000 Take care bye. 109 00:22:55,000 --> 00:23:07,000 All some people right like just really wholesome good people and that's why they made a really good wholesome funny heartwarming movie. 110 00:23:07,000 --> 00:23:33,000 The next chapter is really really really funny alright so there you go now here is the time okay guys you believe this alright my interview Mary Steen Virgin Candace Bergen and Jane mother Fonda thank you so much for speaking with me I really appreciate it. 111 00:23:33,000 --> 00:23:54,000 It's a pleasure.
