  • >> THAT'S JUST THE WAY I WAS THINKING.
  • I WAS REALLY YOUNG.
  • LAW LAUGH.
  • >> Stephen: FROM YOUR VANTAGE POINT NOW IF YOU COULD GO BACK
  • AND TALK TO THAT 18-, 19-YEAR-OLD WHAT, ADVICE WOULD
  • YOU GIVE HIM?
  • >> THAT'S SO MUCH STUFF.
  • THAT PERSON BACK THEN WOULDN'T HAVE LISTENED TO ANYTHING I HAD
  • TO SAY.
  • >> Stephen: THAT'S ACTUALLY-- THAT'S PROBABLY TRUE.
  • >> HE DID NOT LISTEN TO ADVICE.
  • >> Stephen: THAT'S PROBABLY TRUE.
  • I HAVE A FRIEND, AN OLD PRIEST, A FRIEND OF MY FATHER'S, AND I
  • SAID, "HARRY, I WISH I COULD TALK TO MY DAD," BECAUSE I WAS
  • IN MY 20s, "GET SOME ADVICE SM.
  • AND HE SAID, WELL, IF IT MAKES YOU FEEL ANY BETTER, YOU
  • PROBABLY WOULDN'T LISTEN.
  • >> YEAH.
  • >> Stephen: WHAT WOULD YOU TELL HIM THAT YOU WOULDN'T
  • LISTEN TO?
  • YOU SEE YOU TRY TO AVOID THE QUESTION AND I JUST--
  • >> I DON'T DO A LOT OF -- >> Stephen: I'M DOING MY JOB
  • NOW.
  • >> I DON'T GIVE A LOT OF ADVICE.
  • EVERYBODY HAS A DIFFERENT PATH TO, YOU KNOW, TAKE.
  • SO I DON'T GIVE A LOT OF ADVICE.
  • TO THE YOUNG COMICS I WON'T BE GIVING ADVICE.
  • >> Stephen: HOW ABOUT OLD COMICS?
  • WOULD YOU GIVE OLD COMICS ADVICE?
  • >> JUST KEEP DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING, STEPHEN.
  • >> Stephen: "YOU'RE A NATURAL KID."
  • >> NEWER A NATURAL BEST.
  • >> Stephen: HERE IS SOMEBODY WHO DID NOT HIT RIGHT AWAY, DID
  • NOT EXPLODE AT 19, RUDY RAY MOORE WHO YOU PLAY IN YOUR NEW
  • MOVIE "DOLEMITE IS MY NAME."
  • DID NOT GET FAMOUS UNTIL HE GOT OLDER.
  • I KNOW WHO RUDY RAY MOORE IS.
  • >> YOU DO?
  • >> I DO.
  • >> THAT'S GOOD.
  • >> Stephen: IT'S A LITTLE BIT COMPLICATED WHO HE SWHO DOLE
  • MIGHT IS AND WHAT HE DID WITH THE MOVIE.
  • EXPLAIN TO THE PEOPLE WHO RUDY RAY MOORE WAS.
  • >> RUDY RAY MOORE WAS THIS UNDERGROUND COMEDIAN BACK IN THE
  • 70s AND HE DID A REALLY, REALLY, REALLY X-RATED ADULT
  • HUMOR.
  • AND HE-- LIKE I SAID HE WAS UNDERGROUND AND HE DEVELOPED
  • THIS CULT FOLLOWING OF PEOPLE.
  • AND HE MADE THESE MOVIES.
  • HE FINANCED HIS MOVIES HIMSELF, AND HE DID THESE COMEDY RECORDS
  • AND FINANCED HIMSELF.
  • IT WAS LIKE HE COULDN'T GET IN-- IN THE 70s THERE WAS A LITTLE
  • PERIOD CALLED THE BLACK EXPLOREITATION AREA WHERE HE WAS
  • DOING DIFFERENT TIMES OF MOVIES.
  • AND HE COULDN'T GET IN WITH THEM.
  • THEY WERE LIKE, "WE DON'T WANT TO WORK WITH YOU."
  • AND HE HAD TO GO BACKDOOR AND GET HIS OWN STUFF MADE.
  • AND HE BECAME LIKE A LITTLE HERO OF MY.
  • HE WAS LIKE THIS GUERRILLA FILMMAKER FROM THE 70s.
  • >> Stephen: THIS IS A FAMOUS ALBUM COVER OF HIS.
  • I'M GOING TO SHOW THIS TO THE AUDIENCE--
  • >> YEAH, YOU CAN'T SHOW THAT ON TV.
  • ( LAUGHTER ).
  • >> Stephen: THERE IS, LITERALLY, WE HAVE BEEN TOLD
  • THAT EVERY SINGLE BIT OF THIS IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE BLURRED.
  • LIKE, THE ENTIRE ALBUM HAS TO BE BLURRED.
  • >> YOU KNOW IT, BUT HE'S NOT -- >> Stephen: THAT'S WHAT I
  • SAID.
  • >> YEAH.
  • >> Stephen: LET'S SHOW THEM WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.
  • THIS IS WHAT-- THIS WAS HIS ALBUM.
  • ( LAUGHTER ) AND I'M SAYING YOU CAN'T SEE
  • ANYTHING OVER HERE, AND YOU CAN'T REALLY SEE ANYTHING OVER
  • HERE.
  • >> YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • THAT'S THE TAME ALBUM COVER.
  • HE HAS SOME ALBUM COVERS THAT WOULD MAKE ME BLUSH.
  • ( LAUGHTER ) AND THAT'S HARD.
  • TO MAKE ME BLUSH.
  • >> Stephen: DID YOU EVER MEET HIM?
  • >> YEAH, I MET HIM A FEW TIMES.
  • I APPROACHED HIM.
  • I WENT UP TO HIM-- I SAW HIM AT-- I WENT TO SEE HIM A COUPLE
  • OF DIFFERENT TIMES.
  • I SAW HIM ON A PLACE ON VENTURA BOULEVARD WHERE I HAD AN IDEA TO
  • MAKE A MOVIE 15, 16 YEARS AGO, AND HE HAD NO INTEREST MAKING A
  • MOVIE.
  • "LET'S GO ON TOUR TOGETHER."
  • HE WANTED TO TOUR.
  • >> Stephen: WHY DID YOU WANT TO MAKE THIS FILM?
  • WHY DO YOU THINK PEOPLE-- WHAT DID YOU WANT TO TELL PEOPLE
  • ABOUT THIS GUY?
  • >> WELL, LIKE I SAID, HE'S AN INSPIRATION.
  • FIRST AND FOREMOST, HE'S VERY, VERY FUNNY.
  • HIS MOVIES STARTED OFF, LIKE-- IF YOU WATCH A RUDY RAY MOORE
  • MOVIE.
  • THEY STARTED OFF-- KIND OF STONER PICTURES.
  • THEY WERE THE KIND OF MOVIES PEOPLE WOULD SMOKE, AND THEN
  • THEY WOULD, "LIKE, LOOK, AND SAY, "HEY, LOOK WHAT HE JUST
  • SAID."
  • OR HE'D THROW A PUNCH AND MISS BY A LOT IN THE PUNCH, OR THE
  • MICROPHONE, AND YOU COULD SEE THE MICROPHONE COME IN THE SHOT.
  • SO IT WAS STUFF LIKE THAT.
  • AND THAT'S WHAT MADE EVERYBODY START WATCHING HIM INITIALLY.
  • THEN I STARTED DOING COMEDY MYSELF.
  • >> AND STARTED SEEING HIM A WHOLE DIFFERENT WAY.
  • THEN WHEN I GOT INTO MOVIES, IT WAS LIKE-- THEN I FOUND OUT HOW
  • HE MADE HIS MOVIES, HE BECAME AN INSPIRATIONAL FIGURE TO ME.
  • LIKE I SAID, HE'S A GUERRILLA FILMMAKER.
  • >> Stephen: WE HAVE A CLIP RIGHT HERE.
  • YOU CAN EXPLAIN WHAT'S GOING ON IN THIS CLIP?
  • IT'S AND YOU KEEGAN-MICHAEL KEY.
  • WHO I THINK IS THE WRITER OF THE MOVIE?
  • >> YES.
  • IN THE MOVIE.
  • >> Stephen: IN THE MOVIE HE'S THE WRITER OF DOLEMITE'S MOVIE.
  • >> WE'RE SEEING WHERE RIGHT NOW, I CAN CHOP ME.
  • >> Stephen: OKAY.
  • ( LAUGHTER ) IT'S SELF-EXPLANATORY.
  • JIM.
  • >> WE WANT THIS THING TO BE RAW, TELL IT LIKE IT IS ON THE
  • STREETS.
  • LOTS OF PIMPS AND CUSSING AND KUNG FU, KARATE.
  • BROTHERS LOVE ALL THE KUNG FU AND KARATE.
  • >> YOU KNOW KARATE?
  • >> NO, BUT I CAN LEARN.
  • YOU KNOW WHAT WE SHOULD HAVE?
  • A ALL-GIRL KUNG FU ARMY.
  • >> YOU KNOW, THERE'S PLENTY OF STORY OPPORTUNITY, RUDY.
  • ACROSS THIS NATION, INNER CITIES ARE BEING PLAGUED BY VIOLENT
  • CRIME.
  • I FEEL GOVERNMENT HASN'T STEPPED UP.
  • >> THAT'S IT, IT'S WHITEY'S FAULT.
  • THE MAYOR IS CORRUPT, AND THERE'S AN EXORICISM.
  • >> DAMN IT, AN EXORICISM.
  • >> I DON'T KNOW HOW THAT FITS INTO OUR URBAN MOTIF.
  • ( LAUGHTER ) ( APPLAUSE )
  • >> Stephen: HE SEEMS LIKE A GOOD PRODUCER.
  • HE'S GOT HIS FING OARPT PULSE OF THE AUDIENCE THERE.
  • >> HE IS A DUDE THAT BELIEVED IN HIMSELF, YOU KNOW.
  • AND WHEN HE COULDN'T GET IN, HE WENT THE BACK DOOR, AND HE,
  • LIKE-- LIKE HE WENT AND GOT SOMEBODY TO WRITE IT, AND HE
  • WENT AND PAID OUT OF HIS OWN POCKET AND HE GOT IT MADE.
  • AND WE'RE MAKING A MOVIE ABOUT HIS LIFE NOW.
  • AND IT JUST-- HE'S A GUY-- HIS STORY IS INSPIRATIONAL.
  • BECAUSE HE DIDN'T HAVE ALL THE STUFF THAT-- USUALLY YOU'RE
  • DREAMING ABOUT SHOW BUSINESS YOU'VE GOT SOME SPECIAL TALENT
  • OR LOOK OR SOMETHING.
  • HE DIDN'T HAVE ANY OF THOSE THINGS.
  • HE'S THIS REGULAR-LOOKING GUY.
  • HIS COMEDY IS SUPER CRUDE.
  • HIS RECORDS ARE SUPER CRUDE.
  • IT'S LIKE, "YOU BELIEVE IN THIS?"
  • "YEAH, I BELIEVE IN THIS."
  • THAT'S WHAT HIS TALENT WAS.
  • THAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS BELIEVING IN YOUR STUFF.
  • IF YOU BELIEVE IN IT, WHATEVER IT IS, THAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT
  • INGREDIENT.
  • >> Stephen: MAYBE THAT'S THE ADVICE YOU COULD GIVE TO THE
  • 19-YEAR-OLD SELF BECAUSE YOU JUST GAVE ADVICE TO EVERYBODY.
  • YOU JUST GAVE ADVICE.
  • >> THAT'S WHAT I WOULD SAY TO ME.
  • >> Stephen: WE HAVE TO TAKE A BREAK, BUT DON'T GO ANYWHERE,
  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH MORE MR. EDDIE MURPHY, EVERYBODY.
  • STICK AROUND.
