Lounge podcast, with your host Mike Shay and Mike Wells sit backgrab a drink, relax, let's see where the time takes us, enjoy fucking,scarlet your hands and suing the shit out of Disney, and I don't blame her that it wasn'tpart of her contract, the movie sales. So what it this had a lot of actors get.This is that they get paid bonuses off the back end of the box office yeah. Soin the contract it states that it's based off an exclusive opening day. Youknow opening theater theatrical relie before it goes to me, because they cansome. Sometimes an actor has enough cloud. They can get back end off ofhome release as well. Most of them don't depends on how invested in the projectwhere she was. I think she was an executive producer of the films whichshe might have as well, but I honestly don't know with Disney- probably not but anyway,so she her her her salary for the film was based on the box office releasewell because of cove and everything Disney released it on Disney plus, aswell as in theaters on the same day, so that cut into the Prophets of the movie that shewould have gotten paid off of and now her team is claiming that, when theyheard Disney's plan to release it on Disney plus, as well as in the theaterthey reached out for a contract renegotiation and from some emails andstuff that were released like Disney said, like Oh yeah, I don't worry,we'll make sure that, like you, guys are taking care of, and it neverhappened so they're taking them to court. Sayingyou guys owe as a lot of money? Oh and she is every rate yeah. Well then,Disney wants to clap back and say that Scarlett, Jo Hanson's, just she's,being ignorant of people's losses and suffering from Ovid, nineteen and she'sjust being greedy and her legal team is like go fuck yourselves and apparentlyKevin Figgy is saying Fuck Disney payer what she's owed yeah like yeah, howmuch she's, given you guys on the amount of money she's made you yea towhat you've, given her, don't give me off. She's made a ton of money yeah,but like this isn't about this. Is this isn't about the money now is this aboutthis is this? Is this is a principal thing? Yeah, like it's fucking Disney.You guys can afford it. Yeah you own everything you, oh my God when I heardthat because my head never thought...

...about it, because I was one of herslike Oh yeah, it's right, she's, gonna pit, she probably gets some of the boxoffice, take yeah revenue. I was like I didn't think about it. I was like yeah.She has every she's, gonna went like there's no way, you would not win uswell. This happened last year, two, so the first movie that got released streaming as opposed to theatrical wastrols world tour yeah, and this happened with Justin Timberlake andAnna Kendrick was they had the same problem because they're like okay? Well,you told us this movie was going to get released in theaters, and our contractwas that for us to get paid off of that. Well, this didn't hit that didn't hittheaters at all. It only went to streaming, and so they were like okaywell, let's and they were able to renegotiate with universal, to get paidoff of whatever. However, they made money on because universal, I think,was just like streaming on the website or some shit like that yeah Emma Stone is now. Oh, you want because of cruell samething. They drop that on Disney plus and in theaters same day, and I I've been telling people for along time is when they start doing this straight to streaming shit, that's going to hurt the income of themovie you're not going to bring in as much I can deal with yeah well, yeah. Iknow in that like because, like it's thirty Lars a pop, I think wasn't wellit's on the on the Disney plus, it's thirty bucks and you have it yeah. It'sa thing is like what percentage of that? Would you give the actor then well momonly that, but you also got to figure if it's released in theaters you'retalking ten to fifteen bucks per person yep per viewing. This is thirty bucks for account yeah,so one person pays it and now twenty sixty seven people Ho Hound andthirty two her people have the log into the Disney plus can watch it and theycan watch it on repeat yeah. So if somebody wants to go back and watch itagain, you don't almost have to like. Well, it's track it by how much it'sbeen viewed by household and I'm sure you can and I'm sure I think Netflixhas a way, but I don't know how you convert that to income your Disneyfigure it out. You don't yeah it it just. It creates a lot of great area,but it also like they also look at the movie itself likethis is a black widow movie, that's coming out a year after it was already supposed tocome out a year after you just killed her character off an end game and the movie takes place after CivilCaptain America. Civil War, like this movie, should have come out three fouryears ago, yeah. So it's already hurting at the box office, because alot of people didn't didn't see it because they were like who cares? Itmeans nothing. It is no bearing on anything story wise with the MC and allthat we know she's going to make it to the end of the movie, because she's gotto live to die an n game. Now, I know allegedly, like the post credit scene,leads into the Hawkeye series. I guess in some way I haven't seen the movieyet I haven't either I've so watched...

Loki. You need to watch the Loki, but it's just it's a lot of it's a lotof. They mishandled the fuck out of her contract and this character in thismovie and now they're going to get taken to court and it's going to set afucking precedent and I think they're going to learnbefore not because you got to think about how big the budget was on thismovie they're not going to see a return on investment. I beg was the budget onit. You know, I would say, probably at least a hundred mill. I would be shocked if it was anythingless than that, because dead pool. How much is that making the like seventymillion in it? Not it didn't make its budget back because, like dead pool, the first onewas like seventy million and so the budget and bear mind. The budgetdoesn't include like advertising and all that this isjust the production, but the production budget is supposed to be around twohundred million. Oh, my God, us a lot of fucking money right now. It's box office globally isthree hundred and forty four million, but again that doesn't cuit hundredmillion does not take into account advertising typically for a movie tobreak even it has to make back like one and a half its budget, which it's Ithink it's just now at. But I don't know in terms of in terms ofthe legalise of this thing like like this is Disney's going to have to eat some crowfor this. They should there's no fucking way. They win this lawsuit now and it's going to it's going to open upthe flood gates for a lot of people and she shust take the money she wins anddonate it. Oh yeah donate it to. I don't know, donate it to setMcFarland's, get away from Fox VI heard about yeah. He wants away from falsetasCarlson doesn't because of yeah because of cuckle to cart, cuckle Carlson,fucks yeah that works yeah er, I didn't read. I Mitchon Til,I heard about as I oh, I have RIS gonna. Do I don't know I haven't read. Well, Imean also if, if you've ever watched, family guy, they take shots at Fox allthe time. I don't know what particularly TuckerCarlson said this week to Piss him off, I'm sure here's something Shitty I meanyeah, it doesn't leak to. I don't think any. I'm sure it was something awfuland horrible, but yeah he's like I want to get away from Fox, so bad and if theFox loses family guy from their Sunday line up, that will hurt them, becausethat that show is so much money in advertising. I wonder how much moneythey would they that I put a gun to their head like get rid of him or getrid of me well, because you've already got American dad over a TBSP yeahthey've already like the Orville, already got moved over to Hulu. Okay,it's like so all he has to do is get this away from them. anding his clearFox and you got to imagine like he's already, probably had to change the way some stuff's written forFox to be happy. Like imagine, Family...

Guy, no longer beholden, the Fox yeah,my God, and how much they could just cut loose yeah. So I don't know it's but yeah. He wantsgone from Fox, although I be think I'd be Hilarious, so they get rid o. Thatwould be the ultimate like. Thank you seth, my Farlin, for your comedy, butyou also got rid of Tucker Carls. That would be fantastic, well hate that manso much. He is one of my most hated people just in the world he's up therewith Linsey, Graham who has coved and he can go fuck himself. Ah and Lindy Graham has ovid M interesting.Anyway, I did a tweet. I thought I was going to do on it never did well. Itwas like between Lindsey, Graham Getting Ovid the baby, making anti L,BG t marks and Carson once breaking his foot, the worst person, the person withthe work, the thing the person having the worst week is definitely covedstuck with it.

You still didn't fucking get that man boss, that's his wholeexcuse like I'm by I'm from Boston. I know people from Boston who don't usethat word due. I just I just I sit there when I found out, I was like Imean: Did he re she write this like twelve years ago I now like i Mike I like Matt Damon to Ido too, but right now you can go fuck himself,especially because then, like the next day, he's like well, I hang on I've,never used it against gay people. I'm like the word itself is a home of fuck.If I just walk around using the n word, but never use it at a blaster on allthe time, I'm still using the n word motherfucker like unless you're Britishtalking about a cigarette which you are neither what, if he was, I just like cigarettes but yeah, like daughter, had to write him a letter hamto say here is all the reasons why what you're doing is awful dad yeah, I don'tthink of he just took one of Martin's corace films very seriously, just kepton going with it because, like when I sell that I waslike how did you not yeah, but it S, there's! No, I maybeyou're that fucked up in Boston tore you like. I just I feel like. There'sno excuse, I fuck my wife, that's what I call it. She hates it, but I don't know why Imade a A. I don't know why you went ride danger, feel all of the sudden yeah. I just I feel like you can't usethat excuse of, but I didn't know like it's to thousand and twenty one menwe're so far past that not being okay, yeah, like I know so, I know South Parkdid the whole episode with the bikers and all that and it's a funny fuckingepisode, and I get it. It's just we're we're not in that place anymore man andand to be that to be someone who's supposed to be tuned into that kind ofthing, especially in Hollywood. That shows you how untuned he is yeah.It's again. I know so many Bostonians whodon't use that word. His plan like wait in this is n Tousand, nine hundred andninety one nine undred and ninety was only thes was only ten years ago. No Man, sorry guy. I saw that I waslike what the Hella yeah well, it's...

...again to towing it up there with withthe debay thing. It's the the baby, the baby thing it's, it's so hard to say, baby the de baby thing a debate on thebabe. It's again how fucked up de in ignorantdo you have to just be to think? That's fine! There's, there's no possible way thiscan this can come back to haunt me, no, not at all, but also the thing withwith the difference here this I was with the baby. That was at a public thing. He was at a concert Madamo justvolunteered this information yeah, it's like he did. You know a she. Mydaughter last night told me to quit. Callin quit saying I you see my tweeton it. Dame is so woke, threw myself under the, but he just canceled himself, that'simpressive as there be like I'm gonna fucking show these yeah what happenedwith a couple years ago with with Leam Neson when he talked about hutting downthe black guy in Ireland I mean that was on was a little bit, and that was alittle bit different. But again it's like yeah. That was about some. My wayit was killing his his sister sister had been raped, yeah I was. She saidthat it was a black guy who did it and so and it wasn't, it was just it was.It was the choice of language. He as I wanted to go track down some blackbastard, and I was like that. I can't understood where his like. Well,it was literally what he said today, because it Kay like anybody would belike somebody fucking rate, my sister, like you kind of want to track themdown in yeah yeah sure it was it was. It was the choice of words, but alsolike and daily show. Guy Cavanella cover no evencommented on that where he was like. He wasn't even he was like yeah what hesaid was fucked up, but he also apologized and explained why he saidwhat he did yeah it's like. The ideas were supposed to want people to apologize and re recognize what theydid was done and but with with Matt Damon, he was like hey everybody, guesswhat I just learned not to say why would you think that was a humanizestory was a dam now I saw that I was like this is aweird thing that I can. I will be again, it would be. Idon't know I don't know what's worse like if he was caught, saying it likean event or something, but to just volunteer that story. It's like yeah. Iwas having you guys on hear a funny story. I was having dinner with myfamily last night and I just start calling this dude aand my daughter writes me a whole letter about why I it's bad. How fuckedup is that my daughter wrote me a letter about the Tigne. I don't knowit'll be I'm because I'm curious to see what, ifhe gives me, he hasn't done a whole lot. He s a need to lately. I mean he'sdoing that clasica water, something like that where he oh yeah, is play ared neck. Doesn't they going over its...

...trigedgo who's like in like a lesbianor something like that, a jail or break her out a j like that yeah, I don'tknow we'll be care to see how that does he's going to get. I like most movies,she does go. I came member last time I I just mean like nowadays, people arereally quick to like destroy somebody over something yeah, this right and and,like you know, like not go see his movie. That kind of thing I want tothink it was a going to be great like it's, not your perative Al Mad, Damemovie like maybe maybe twenty thirty million dollars probly makes like that,like it's not going to be like don't think it's gonna be like a great movie.Now that's going to be a blockbuster Matt Dan, it's not your potionsupremacy or yeah or fucking Janson Bob's trank.

I wonder if they d seetheir certain sarks three yeah, I'm like I wonte he's going to be in clerk.I hope so well, I love the clerks too. He starts making fun of Ben AffleckYeah the cast Ben a fuck who's been Abli. I don't know some to bad actorfrom Boston. It was. He was a good one tin, I just it's so wild like when I start,I don't know, I'm just Super Fum, I love Kavina. I don't like cleis movielies. I haven't seen her the Walrus one walrus one with. I can't think of it. I think it'scalled the Walrus. I haven't seen Yoga hosers. I was seen Yo her, but that'shis daughter yeah that or that made him love love directing again. Is it reallybecause he just got so sick and tired of of just like wrecking and writingmovies, because before that the last movie he had done was Red State? Was it red said, or was itZack and Mary? Oh God, I don't know, I think it might in red state took a lookat say: It's a good movie yeah, but now, apparently, what I he likelost his love of like directing and...

...writing movies, and then him doing thevide. The movie with his daughter, was like make him made. Him Fall in love with,like Tusk, toss thereis yeah, so it went Zack and Muri cop out, which Ihaven't seen. He had a cop out really did he. That was. That was the only onehe had. That's the only one he's directed that he hasn't written yeah hehad par. He did not like price Willis, Oh really, and then then red state Tusk,Yoga hosers. Then the Jan Sila Bobbery boot I haven't seen re boat either Ihaven't either kill Roy was here is something he's working on right now. Idon't know what that is and then clerks. Three talk about a very interestingcareer as like a director, because people talk about chasing amy all thetime and that movie is incredible m. When you look at when you look at likewhat you your Typical Kevin Smith movie is, and then you look at chasing am Yolike what yeah I said. That's the one. The Oscars missed on yeah no I'd agreeyeah. I had a hundred percent agree. Well you also you look at like who walls in chasing amy you've gotthen Affleck. That was one of his first big starring roles. You got you knowJason Lees in this J. Obviously Jason Mews Cacalia there, really young CSF,Lek, Matt Damon's got a bit part in there. So I need to re watch that it'sbeen fast since I watched it, but also like you know, you got mall rats. YouKnow Mall Rats, Chanon, Dorety, Tacente, Jason Lees in that one of theStanley Stanley's Stanley's got a cam yea yeah, but is he also did e? He also did Inever do he directed Jersey, girl, yeah, which I don't love Yep, it's not hiswords, but it's not his best but I'll watch. Anything Kevin Smith touchessome of the some of my favorite episodes of like the flash weredirected by Kevin S, e and H. T I didn't on T. I knew he draghi. I neverknow like the first one he the first one he no like one a year or somethinghe would do sitting with like super girl. He would do like one of those ayear. The first one he did was an episode of the Flash, and that episodebrought me to tears. It was such a good character based episode. He so he lovescomics yeah, Oh yeah, it was. It was so in his wheel house. I remembered thevideo of him. He went. I guess he was at a screening of Captain Marvel andthis in the state seen Cavin Marvel yeah the Cambio Ver Stan Lee is him.Reading the mall rats script- and I guess Kevin Ly, like somebody was atthe screen then said like they heard him like shout in the movie theaterlike. Oh, my God. I made him cry because that can now is like I'm in theMarvel Universe yeah. I still think he needs to be like the new cameo guy hedoes. I like he doesn't do anything for comicbooks per se, never know, but well. She I'll take that back. He had he did somegreat contemporary runs for, like Dare Devlin Green Arrow, okay Bo, I'm sayinghe didn't like. I don't know he didn't...

...invent anything sure, but he's broughtcomment books to like almost like a pup culture ask like yeaht were like yeah and he was such good friends of Stanley. Oh they. It waslike his second father yeah towers like yeah. I feel like he should be theCandado, but they'll never do it now but, like I think, should be him ordeadpool. It should be. Ryan rental is just right,roun, dressed in a dead pole outfit, but not really like that's. Why?Because so MC Farlan him and Ryan Reynolds are tight. That's why? If youwatch the two Ted movies or or the Emiliasthat I in the West Rinrolles an unspoken Hamo and every single one werejust is just on screen, never speaks it's so weird! Well, we got to pay himmore. Tock, no bud just so weird that, like you're such good friends and you,you love this person so much as friends like yeah. I just do nothing on Sasine,for, like thirty seconds Hedrick Stewart was the narrower for Ted Yeah.UN McGregor has got five seconds on screen in a million ways to day in theWest. Jamie Fox shows up his Gango in the post credit scene of that movie.It's true, you know you look at some of the like.You know. McFarland's got the respect of people like William Neson, CharlieStarin. You know, both of whom not only haveshown him in his movies, but we're in episodes of the Orville for fuck sayLean Heston as an episode of the orb in the first season. It was a kind of acameo kind of not it was. He was the they were watching the video logs of acaptain of an abandoned spaceship and it was Liam Neson. So why that's what Ithink it's really weird when you have like movie stars, do Cameos on shows:Oh yeah. It's so like what the fuck are you doing here, oh yeah, but now Ididn't know, Shirley Starin was on one two. That's she was in season. I wantto say season to. She was like the main character, an episode. She was like thebig villain or whatever. That's so because she had done a million waysbecause they had both grantly Lesen had done a million ways a guy in the West,and what I love is Liam. Neeson only did that because there was an episodeof Family Guy where he makes fun of the idea of Leam Neson being a cowboy, andI guess, Leam Neson sons thought it was the funniest shit ever so. Sevi Carlinreached out to him as a joke and lean was like me I'll. Do it it's so we gotto be the fillin he millonas to night in the West, an so that suck fuckingcrazy yeah a fan has a lot of pull for like well he's I mean he's a massivestar track fan, which is why you made the Orville. He actually has a coupleof cameos in seasons because it was but a star trek enterprise he's like anengineer or something like that is like one line or whatever really yeah, butthe also. If you watch the orvil he's got cast members of next generation, Voyager d space, nineenterprise who show up as other characters in the Orville, because it'sthe love letter to Star Trek, but people set lick falins got the respectof like real talent out there. People...

...just write him off because he's youknow the family guy did yeah. One of the thing is: is family guys, honestly,why would you write? That's so well. Written number show for like so long. Iknow, but it's like it's like Adam Sandler, on cut jam. I exactly thatthey write it off because they a lot of people just see it as low brow, humorit's like yeah, but it's so fucking, clever, yeah, and that okay for peoplewho get pissed off at people doing low brow. Humor yeah, I'm like to make thisguy is a joke but end up being like a low brow. Humorjoke, but he disguise is something else like you know hard that is to like,because most Libraco can see that from a mile away yeah I just fucking. I had a comic one time tosay that I think that's a little hanging fruit I was like. Did you seeit coming? No one shut the fuck up. Also, did you laugh yeah like? Is itfunny? We want to know someone else write your jokes. You shut the fuck up yeah. I know I love, I love people whowho can do like the low brow or the dumbhumor, but in a creative way. It's why I love Kevin Smith. Yeah Zack and Merimake a porno a movie about people. Making port making amateur porn shouldbe dumb and unwatched. That movie is sogood and there's a love. Star is a great love story and that's a relatablelove story, and it's just double Dutch Ruteroth. He also got an actual porn start o Beinthat movie so because you kind of have to you got to find somebody who's coolwith that shit other than Jason, mews. So yeah, it's true, but believe in just look in that movie.Look at you got fucking Craig Robins in that moviebefore me, but like he was on the office, and that was basically it andElizabeth banks who was on top of the fucking world and at the time at thetime, and you wouldn't necessarily see her making something like that. She'sgot a great sense of fucking humor though, and she's so funny in thatmovie, Seth Rogan, Seth Rogan, who, because that was when he was ruling thecomedy world movies at that point. Yes, a Jason uses in that fucking, just in long as the gay pornstar, fucking Brandon routh as his boyfriend, which is amazing how the Fian he's not really done.Anything though, right now he's been on, he's been doing that legends oftomorrow show he's been in the Aero. Verse Show US The atom. Okay go so he'sbeen doing that because, after Superman tanked that Super Man returns movie, Hemade after that movie hit fucking rock bottom, because he was kind of countingon that to be his big jumping off point. He didn't do my as a while ad asterrible, really and that wasn't even his fault. No, he got cast because helooked like Christopher Reeve yeah. That was basically it I'm looking whoalls in this movie, We said kind of big ones: Tch CampbellMartin, who she's funniest fuck, is in Jack Jezairi. Now vegan Katy Morgan is the porn star thatplays stacy the one who the one who...

...frosts what's his name, the guys film and Shit, the guy fromfrom Clerks Dante, not Dante. You fucking JesusChristing, trotte blank here, not Jeff Jeff Anderson, yeah, JeffAnderson, he ah, but it was said, Justin Long, Tracy Lordsis in there as as bubbles she's the agent she's, the older olderwoman who yeah. What's this Adone, follow me on fuckinginstagram from did he really yeah wow yeah t I because I'm pretty much a badass like that. There's there's a guy who hasn't but like has he ever really tried to?Like you know what I mean? No, I don't think he has Brian on Hallaron tryingto think he's done like I'm looking at I'm looking at hisphillory right here. Like you know, he did, he did Dogma and Clerks and mal ratschasing amy and all that Jane Silan Bob Strike Back, but other than that, likeit's a lot of small parts in a lot of indies, tryan O Hallahan hole hand,Hollerin, Hallara, riant, Brian o'haleran, a lot of small stuff, andthen you know pretty much anything. Cabin Kevin Smith wants him to dobecause his first acting role was clerks and if Kevin Smith gives youthat big of a jumping off point, you do whatever he wants for the rest of hislife yeah, so yeah clerks just, I feel like clerksokay. So the thing of things that define my life as a comedian or playclerks, yeah and maybe money python when they comes just random there, likemy holy gral, specifically how they gree yeah.
