  • I don't know.
  • I think that was more just like me and my own imagination
  • I see.
  • No, really, as a little kid did you really
  • think that plazas were named after you?
  • I mean no.
  • But I do remember as a child like one of the first like
  • lies I think that I ever told was like,
  • I told a bunch people in my class that the Plaza Hotel,
  • that my dad owned it or something.
  • Wow
  • And like, you know, it was like a stupid thing.
  • To get-- like to make people think that you were, what rich?
  • Just cool.
  • I don't know.
  • Yeah.
  • It's cool Yeah and then when--
  • --just make me feel less alone.
  • Yeah.
  • Aw, you poor thing.
  • Yeah.
  • And then when they found out that it was not the truth
  • you probably lost those friends.
  • Yeah, no.
  • I had no friends.
  • Oh.
  • This is a sad story.
  • You're bumming people out.
  • I'm sorry.
  • You hosted an award show.
  • Which one did you host?
  • I hosted the Independent Spirit Awards.
  • Oh, that's right.
  • Yes.
  • Yes.
  • How did that go?
  • Did you like it?
  • Yeah, it was fun.
  • Yeah, I really liked it.
  • I kind of like outdid my--
  • overdid it I really went for it
  • Yeah.
  • Well, people seemed to really respond well to it.
  • They like it.
  • Yeah.
  • I think everyone had a good time.
  • I kind of like, once they asked me to do it, I kind of--
  • had like a nostalgia for like the Billy Crystal like,
  • you know, Oscar '90s like kind of vibe.
  • So I was like treating it like that even though they
  • had no money and zero budget.
  • And I was like I need dancers and I need films and opening
  • films and lights and props.
  • And they were like, we don't have anything.
  • And I was like, I'm doing it.
  • That's fantastic.
  • And have you always wanted to host?
  • Do you like the idea of hosting something?
  • No.
  • I-- No.
  • I don't know how it happened.
  • They just asked me to do it and then I was like, all right,
  • well if you think I can do it then I guess I'll try.
  • Yeah.
  • And then you liked it.
  • And now I liked it.
  • But I don't know if it's like something--
  • I don't know.
  • I mean you're good at it.
  • And it's like a weird thing to do.
  • It's like-- I mean not in a bad way.
  • It's like hard.
  • I mean it's a lot of pressure.
  • It was it was exhilarating.
  • It was a live television show too.
  • So the clock is ticking and, you know, it's a rush.
  • Yeah.
  • And you have to really pay attention to time.
  • Oh, yeah.
  • Yeah, yeah.
  • No room to get, you know, too weird.
  • No, no.
  • You should you should host this sometime.
  • I'll do it anytime.
  • All right great.
  • You'll do it.
  • I'm doing it now.
  • Well, you're not.
  • You're not.
  • Right now you're a guest.
  • Well.
  • Yeah.
  • You say so.
  • I live here but that's OK.
  • That's why it's convenient too.
  • Because you live here.
  • We don't have to pay for transportation or anything.
  • Yeah, I need a house.
  • All right.
  • Well then save.
  • Thanks.
  • So you're-- it's June now, as you know.
  • But the Parks and Rec reunion was in March.
  • That was fantastic.
  • Did you have fun?
  • Oh my god, it was insane.
  • Remember that in March?
  • [CLAPPING]
  • It did very well.
  • I know, and can you believe that I- yeah, it was really fun.
  • Man, it was so good.
  • Yeah.
  • The ratings were great.
  • Just getting all those people back in one room,
  • and you just never know what will happen.
  • And I can't believe what happened.
  • Yeah, I know.
  • It was out of control.
  • That's how we felt. Are all of you still close?
  • Yes.
  • We are.
  • Like, we are all so busy so it's not
  • like we see each other all the time.
  • But we have like a mass texting chain.
  • And someone updates it probably every other day.
  • So it's like, you know, we're all still spiritually,
  • technologically connected.
  • Spiritually and technology.
  • Yes.
  • So let's talk about Child's Play.
  • Do you like scary movies?
  • I don't seek them out.
  • But you know, I'll watch it if you make me.
  • Yeah, well you're in it.
  • And so it kind of like, then you know
  • it's not scary because you're actually part of it.
  • Yes.
  • But it's kind of--
  • Child's Play is Chucky.
  • It's a remake of Chucky.
  • It's a remake of-- yes, of the original Child's Play,
  • the first Chucky movie.
  • Right And what's happening in this one besides scariness?
  • Well, I mean it's a remake, so it's
  • very close to the original story.
  • I play a single mom who, you know,
  • is just doing the best she can.
  • And she gets her son a gift, which just ends up
  • being a murder doll.
  • Which sucks.
  • And I would say the only-- like the big difference
  • between the original is like there's the update is really
  • with Chucky.
  • Chucky is no longer a possessed demon doll.
  • It's now a smart doll.
  • So he's connected to the cloud and he can control devices.
  • And there's kind of a more like you know technology can be evil
  • kind of--
  • Oh, that sounds more real.
  • --which is something that I thought was really cool.
  • Because I don't really want to be in a movie
  • where people are stabbing me and, you know,
  • I don't want that in my life.
  • My brain, you know.
  • No, not at all.
  • But I can get behind a movie where it's like, oh
  • technology is the villain.
  • Yeah, and it is.
  • It can be.
  • If it's not used for good.
  • Exactly.
  • So the kid on--
  • I understand-- did you play pranks on him
  • or did he play pranks on you?
  • What happened?
  • We-- he played pranks on me.
  • He was constantly playing pranks on me.
  • He was hiding in my trailer screaming at me,
  • freaking me out.
  • He even when the camera was rolling,
  • he was praying playing pranks on me.
  • We would be doing scenes which would have nothing to do
  • with pranks, and he would--
  • I'd be like walking across him, you
  • know, to the window or something and he'd stick his leg out
  • and trip me.
  • On camera.
  • And I'd be like, Gabriel do not mess with me on camera.
  • I am your mother on camera.
  • And I tried to get him back but I did not really succeed.
  • Oh, well we wanted him to be here and scare you today but
  • and it's too obvious
  • Oh, that'd be his dream.
  • We were going to scare you.
  • We were actually ready to go and everything.
  • Are you serious?
  • Yeah.
  • I was really going to scare you.
  • Oh my god.
  • I'm not.
  • I'm not.
  • Look, look, look, look.
  • OK.
  • There's nothing in there.
  • Don't.
  • No, I'm showing you
  • Chucky's in there.
  • Chucky.
  • Don't.
  • Chucky.
  • I know Chucky's here.
  • But I seriously was, and then they said that's too obvious.
  • And so but--
  • All right.
  • All right.
  • Hi, I'm Andy.
