LARRY -- "LARRY CROWNE."

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

VERY DAPPER.

>> THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

JON JON THIS MOVIE, THIS MOVIE,

TELL ME ABOUT... YOU LOOK VERY

GOOD.

>> ARE YOU EVER CUTTING TO

CAMERA THREE?

IF YOU'RE NOT, [BLEEPED] THE

TIE.

I DON'T CARE.

>> Jon: GIVE HIM THREE, CHUCK.

LOOK, LOOK, LOOK.

OH, NO, THAT'S NOT WORKING.

CAN I TELL YOU SOMETHING,

THOUGH?

I LIKE IT, THOUGH.

IT HAS A CERTAIN... THERE'S A

DEBONAIR QUALITY TO IT.

YOU DON'T LOOK DISHEVELED.

NO MATTER WHAT I DO, I LOOK

DISHEVELED.

YOU LOOK VERY SHARP.

>> TOMMY CLEANS UP GOOD.

>> Jon: TOMMY DOES CLEAN UP

GOOD.

TELL ME ABOUT THIS "LARRY

CROWNE."

IT SEEMS LIKE A "STELLA GETS HER

GROOVE BACK" FOR MIDDLE-AGED

WHITE GUYS.

[LAUGHTER]

CHEW ON THAT.

CHEW ON THAT.

>> I'M GOING TO.

>> Jon: ENJOY THAT ONE.

>> IT STARTED OFF GOING FOR THAT

TARGET AUDIENCE, AS A MATTER OF

FACT.

I FIND THE MIDDLE-AGED WHITE

GUYS ARE NOT REPRESENTED ENOUGH

IN TODAY'S AMERICAN MEDIA.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: THEY ARE VICTIMS IN

MANY RESPECTS.

>> THEY ARE INDEED UNDERLINGS.

>> Jon: THEY ARE UNDERLINGS.

TELL ME ABOUT THIS JULIA

ROBERTS.

SHE SEEMS TO HAVE A FEW...

>> SHE'S A NUT.

SHE'S AN ABSOLUTE COOK.

SHE'S A DREAM BOAT, SHE SMELLS,

MMM, FANTASTIC.

I JUST DID A MARTY SHORT, THERE

MMM.

>> Jon: WHO IS THE BEST

SMELLING, IN YOUR EXPERIENCE.

>> YES.

>> Jon: AND I THINK THIS IS

VERY IMPORTANT, THE

BEST-SMELLING ACTOR.

>> BEST-SMELLING ACTOR OR

ACTRESS?

>> I GOT IT.

I GOT IT.

I AM GOING TO SAY KEVIN BACON.

[LAUGHTER]

BECAUSE ON "APOLLO 13" WE WERE

REALLY JAMMED IN, JAMMED IN.

>> Jon: IS THERE A SAVORY

QUALITY TO THAT?

IS THERE A BACONNESQUE, IF YOU

WILL, BECAUSE THAT IS... IS THAT

WHERE YOU WERE GOING?

>> NO, NO, I THINK HE SMELLS

LIKE A LITTLE MIX OF BABY POWDER

AND LISTERINE.

>> Jon: THAT'S A LOT OF

HYGIENE.

>> THAT IS A LOT OF HYGIENE.

>> Jon: DO YOU GET TO CHOOSE,

YOU'VE WORKED WITH JULIA ROBERTS

BEFORE.

DO YOU SAY TO YOURSELF, I'M

GOING TO BE ON LOCATION FOR...

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DO A

MOVIE?

>> THIS TOOK ABOUT NINE WEEKS,

BUT WE SHOT IT IN THE FAMILY IN

LOS ANGELES, SO NOT EXACTLY A

LOCATION.

SO EVERYONE WENT HOME EVERY

NIGHT.

>> Jon: IT ALMOST DOESN'T EVEN

MATTER THEN.

>> BUT STILL, THERE IS AN ASPECT

OF WHO DO YOU WANT TO SEE EVERY

DAY.

YOU WANT TO SEE PEOPLE THAT MAKE

YOU LAUGH.

MAYBE YOU MEET THEM FOR THE

FIRST TIME ON THE FIRST DAY OF

SHOOTING OR MAYBE YOU'VE DONE

OTHER FILMS WITH THEM.

>> Jon: YOU WROTE THIS, YOU

CO-WROTE THIS...

>> CO-WROTE THIS WITH NIA

VARDALOS.

>> Jon: YOU WERE THE BOSS.

YOU MADE THE COSTUMES.

>> I DID NOT MAKE THE COSTUMES.

>> Jon: YOU COOKED EVERYONE

FETA CHEESE.

>> THERE WERE SOME DAYS I HAD

THE CROCK POT ON THE BACK OF THE

CAMPER.

THIS IS TRUE.

YOU START OFF IN A LONG TIME AGO

AND YOU JUST PUT THAT DREAM TEAM

TOGETHER, AND YOU EXAMINE THE

SCENE THAT IS STUCK INSIDE.

YOU'LL HATE IT.

>> Jon: IS TOM HANKS CALLS

SOMEBODY, AND I'M GOING TO TALK

ABOUT YOU IN THE THIRD PERSON,

DO YOU EVER FEEL THE STING OF A

REJECTED PHONE CALL?

IF YOU CALL SOMEBODY UP AND GO,

I WANT YOU TO DO THIS AND

THEY'RE LIKE, NO?

>> NO, NO, NO.

YOU START WITH A CAVEAT RIGHT

OFF THE BAT.

THE FIRST THING YOU DO... YOU

CAN SAY, NO YOU CAN SAY, NO IT

WILL NOT HURT MY FEELINGS.

IT WILL HURT MY FEELINGS.

WILL NOT, BUT IF YOU DON'T LIKE

IT, DON'T DO IT.

IT'S JUST THE WAY IT WORKS.

>> Jon: AND YOU'LL GO WITH THE

DIRECT PHONE CALL YOURSELF?

>> NO, THE LAST THING...

>> Jon: IS THAT THE LAST LINE

OF DEFENSE.

>> THE WORST THING IS WHEN THEY

SAY, I DON'T THINK HE'S GOING TO

DO IT UNLESS YOU GIVE HIM A

CALL.

>> Jon: IT'S ALL ON YOU.

>> THAT'S LIKE DISASTER.

>> Jon: THAT'S HOW I ENDED UP

GUEST STARRING ON "THE NANNY."

>> HERE'S THE WEIRD THING, IT

DOES TOTALLY WORK.

>> Jon: IT REALLY DOES.

ONE DAY I'M IN MY OFFICE AND I

HEAR [AS FRAN DRESSER] "HELLO."

NANNY FEIN?

>> YOU'RE LIKE, I'D LOVE TO DO

THIS BUT IT BUMPS WITH THIS

MOVIE WE'RE DOING ALREADY.

IN WHAT WAY?

WELL, A GUY PUTS ON CLOTHES AND

DRIVES TO A THING AND THIS DEAL

HAPPENS, SO I WISH I COULD.

>> Jon: I WERE I COULD BUT I

CAN'T.

>> YOU ESCAPE WITH YOUR LIFE.

>> Jon: FOR YOU NOW, THIS IS

THIS THE PINNACLE, FROM NOW ON

IT'S TOM HANKS... YOU JUST

BECOME NOT JUST "STELLA GOT HER

GROOVE BACK" BUT THE TYLER PERRY

OF MIDDLE-AGED WHITE GUYS.

TOM HANKS PRESENTS.

>> I'VE DONE MY TIME IN THE

DRESS, SO MAYBE I CAN

ACTUALLY... I DON'T KNOW IF THE

KIDS REMEMBER THAT BACK BEFORE

HIGH-DEF IF YOU GO BACK ON THE

YOUTUBE YOU'LL FIND ME IN THE

BOSOM BUDDY, WHICH STARTED IT

ALL.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

ACTUALLY, I LOOK AT THE ACTORS

DURING THE MOVIE, THEY ARE

HAVING SUCH A GOOD TIME, SITTING

OVER THERE LAUGHING, NOT

WORKING, NOT FIGURING OUT THE

SHOTS, NOT FINDING OUT WHAT YOU

CAN'T, DO NOT HAVING TO ARGUE

WITH SOMEONE ON THE PHONE AT THE

END OF THE DAY.

THEY'RE HAVING FUN AND I USED TO

BE ONE OF THEM.

I'M NEVER DOING THIS AGAIN.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: YOU WILL NEVER EVER

NOT BE ADORABLE.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

>> GOD BLESS YOU, SIR.

>> Jon: "LARRY CROWNE" IN

THEATERS ON FRIDAY.

>> THAT'S THE END OF THE THIRD

SEGMENT?

>>

>> Jon: YES.
