( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

MY GUEST TONIGHT ACADEMY AWARD

NOMINATED ACTRESS.

HER NEW FILM IS THE GREAT

GATSBY.

>> LOVE IS MADE ENTIRELY OF YOUR

OWN IMAGINATION.

>> NO.

YOU WERE THERE ALL ALONG.

IT'S AN IDEA, A DECISION.

OF COURSE IF ANYTHING IS NOT TO

YOUR LIKING, I'LL CHANGE IT.

>> IT'S PERFECT.

FROM YOUR PERFECT, IRRESISTIBLE

IMAGINATION.

>> Jon: KISS HER, YOU FOOL.

PLEASE WELCOME CAREC MULLIGAN.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

NICELY DONE.

>> THANKS.

Jon: FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE

SUPPOSED TO TURN IN A BOOK

REPORT ON THE GATSBY, A BRIEF

SYNOPSIS OF WHAT GOES ON WOULD

BE HELPFUL RIGHT NOW.

>> YEAH.

SO GATSBY IS GREAT.

>> Jon: HE IS GREAT AND HE LIVES

IN A REALLY NICE HOUSE.

>> HE DOES.

Jon: THIS IS DAUNTING TO TAKE

ON A PIECE OF SUCH CHERISHED

LITERATURE.

IS IT NOT?

>> YEAH, IT ALWAYS IS.

I'VE DONE ADAPTATIONS OF NOVELS

BEFORE.

>> Jon: IT HAD TO BE... WHAT I

LIKE ABOUT IT IS IT HAD TO BE

AUDACIOUS TO DO SOMETHING LIKE

THIS.

AND BAZ IS PROBABLY THE KING OF

AUDACIOUSNESS.

THAT'S A GREAT PERSON TO DO

THIS.

>> YEAH, YEAH.

AMAZING.

ACTUALLY HAVING SEEN HIS FILMS I

AN IDEA OF WHAT IT WOULD BE

LIKE.

BUT I'VE SEEN IT ONCE.

SPECTACULAR.

>> Jon: YOU'VE ONLY SEEN IT

ONCE.

>> YEAH.

I CAN'T WATCH MYSELF.

>> Jon: REALLY?

NO.

I SAW IT ONCE...

>> Jon: I PUT MY MOVIES ON A

LOOP.

>> IT'S WEIRD.

IT WAS PLAYING BACK STAGE.

>> Jon: JUST MY ONE SCENE FROM

HALF BAKE.

>> YOU'RE GREAT.

Jon: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT.

WHEN YOU'RE THERE, THE EFFECT

THAT HE CREATES ARE SO STUNNING.

BUT I ALWAYS WONDER WHEN YOU'RE

THERE, DOES THE, YOU KNOW,

PATINA OF MODERN FILM OR DO

PEOPLE HAVE CELL PHONES IN THEIR

POCKETS.

>> GOING OFF DURING THE SCENES?

Jon: EXACTLY.

DO YOU GET THE FEELING OF THIS

SORT OF 1920s WHEN YOU'RE IN

IT.

>> YOU DO BECAUSE IT'S SO HUGE.

YOU KNOW, THERE ARE 400 PEOPLE

DRESSED AS WELL LIKE THEY'RE IN

THE 1920s.

YOU DO WALK INTO THE MIDDLE OF

IT.

>> Jon: IS IT, WHEN THEY'RE

DOING THOSE SCENES WITH MUSIC

AND I'M ALWAYS CURIOUS ABOUT

THIS.

IS THERE MUSIC OR NO?

>> YEAH.

WELL NOT FOR THE TALKING BIT.

WHEN YOU'RE DOING THE WIDE SHOTS

THERE'S MUSIC.

>> Reporter: WHEN YOU'RE DOING

THE TALKY-TALK.

>> THAT'S HOW I REFER TO IT.

THE TALKY-TALKY.

>> Jon: I'M ALL RIGHT.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

Jon: YOU'RE DOING THE

TALKY-TALK AND EVERYONE BEHIND

YOU FOR 20 TAKES JUST HAS TO DO

THIS.

>> YES.

BUT THEY'RE AMAZING.

THEY GET INTO IT.

LIKE THEY GO CRAZY.

>> Jon: DO THEY GIVE THEM A

BEAT?

>> YES.

Jon: THEN THEY HAVE TO KEEP

TO THAT BEAT OR DOES ANYBODY...

>> WELL, SOMETIMES YOU GET IN

THE FANCY FILMS YOU GET LIKE AN

EAR WIIG IN YOUR EAR.

20 PEOPLE WILL HAVE THE MUSIC

PLAYING INTEREST THEIR EARS.

>> Jon: AND DO PEOPLE FOLLOW

THEM?

>> I HAD THAT AND I FELL OVER A

FEW TIMES SO THEY PUT THE MUSIC

AWAY.

>> Jon: THAT COULD GIVE YOU THE

VERTIGO.

AND THE '20s CLOTHES, NO

BARGAIN EITHER.

THE LADIES, THE '20s' LADIES

DIDN'T DRESS FOR COMFORTNESS

AIRL.

>> NO, NO.

Jon: IT WAS DIFFICULT.

WHEN THEY DO THIS TYPE OF THING,

HOW METICULOUS ARE THEY TO THE

PERIOD OR IS IT A PERIOD

INTERPRETED THROUGH...

>> NO, THEY WERE REALLY

PARTICULAR.

CATHERINE MARTIN WHO DOES ALL OF

BAZ'S FILMS AND WHO IS HIS WIFE

DOES ALL THE SETS AND THE

CLOTHES.

THEY'RE REALLY REALLY SPECIFIC.

>> Jon: BECAUSE WHEN YOU'RE

CAPTURING IT WAS SUCH AN

INCREDIBLE TIME.

YOU KNOW, ITION FUNNY BECAUSE IT

WAS SORT OF... IT'S SAID TO BE

THE TIME OF THE DREAM, THAT IT

DIED.

IT WENT ALONG FOR ANOTHER EIGHT

YEARS.

AND THEN KILLED IT AGAIN.

>> WHICH IS WHY THE FILM IS TO

RELEVANT.

>> Jon: BUT IT DOES, YOU KNOW,

WHEN YOU WATCH IT, DO YOU FEEL

THEME ATICALLY, DO YOU FEEL IT

CONNECT TO A MODERN AUDIENCE IN

THAT MANNER?

>> YEAH.

I THINK BAZ IS THE REASON THAT

NOW IS THE TIME TO BRING IT

BACK.

HE WOULDN'T HAVE DONE IT

OTHERWISE.

I THINK YOU DO.

AND I THINK, YOU KNOW, THE WAY

THAT HE DOES, I MEAN, EVERYONE

IS TALKING ABOUT THE SOUND TRACK

FOR THE MUSIC.

JAY GLEE PRODUCED THE SOUND

TRACK.

>> Jon: I'M NOT FAMILIAR WITH

HIS WORK.

>> HE'S SORT OF AN UP-AND-COMER.

I NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS

THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE ANYTHING TO

DO WITH HIM.

AMAZING AND AWED.

>> Jon: WE HANG.

YOU GUYS ARE LIKE BUDDIES I

HERE.

>> Jon: MOSTLY DOWN AT THE CRIB.

THROUGH THE CRIB STORE.

>> I'M ALSO INVITED TO THE CRIB.

BUT I'M NOT AVAILABLE.

>> Jon: I'LL TELL YOU WHAT'S

GREAT MUSICALLY.

YOU'RE IN THIS OTHER MOVIE.

AND THE MUSIC... THIS IS THE

MOVIE WHERE THE MUSIC IS

PHENOMENAL.

AND THE FELLOW THAT DOES ISAAC,

WHO PLAYS... YOU'RE SINGING.

WHEN DOES THAT COME OUT?

>> THAT COMES OUT LATER IN THE

YEAR, I THINK, YEAH.

>> Jon: THIS YEAR.

THIS YEAR, YEAH.

Jon: IS THAT SOMETHING.

WHERE ART THOU?

SNOP I JUST LOVE THAT.

YOU'RE HAVING A GOOD YEAR.

ANYTHING [BLEEP] COMING OUT WITH

THAT YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT?

NOTHING?

JUST ALL ACES.

>> THAT'S NEXT YEAR.

ITS GOING TO BE A DISASTER.

>> Jon: IT'S JUST GOING SO WELL,

I REALLY NEED TO BOMB IN

SOMETHING.

WELL, THE GREAT GATSBY IS IN

THEATERS ON FRIDAY.

LIKE THERE'S A THING ABOUT IT.

I GUESS YOU CALL IT A GROUND

SWELL.

>> YEAH.

Jon: ARE YOU SUPERSTITIOUS?

I AM.

Jon: I FEEL THAT RIGHT NOW.

ALL RIGHT.
