back with two stars from Clint Eastwood's movie "Richard Jewell" about the security guard who saved hundreds of lives at the olympic park bombing only to find his life turned upside down when he's wrongly accused of the attack. Take a look. The bomber used it upperware to hole the nails. That's standard. Well, what does that have to do with you? And they take my baby-sitting tapes. My Disney movies. I think they did that because they wanted to see if we might have recorded something on the tapes like a political statement or something. Why do you keep defending these people? I'm not defending them. I'm just explaining. Well, stop it! Whoo! Please welcome academy award winner Kathy bates and Paul Walter Hauser. Welcome, you two. You know, this movie, this movie is already getting a lot of Oscar buzz. And the national board of review gave you, Kathy, the best supporting actress award and, Paul, you also won for best breakthrough performance. I broke through, I guess. You broke through. Kathy, you play Richard's mom in this movie and you're trying to prove your son's innocence and you're just nominated to are a golden globe as well. What up. What up. Congratulations. When you found out you were nominated for the golden globe, how did you feel about that. I felt great. I want the movie to get the attention it deserves because in 1996, this was -- it was 88 days for these people surrounded by the press and for three days he was a hero and then suddenly he was the suspect. And it was so awful for them and even now people think he's the Even though it's been proven. Even though it's been proven so this movie, I hope, will rectify that. Holds a special place in your heart. It does. It is an injustice. Wonderful to be in a movie like in that has an opportunity to help his mother Bobbi who I play in the film because it's still very upsetting to her that this is, you know, her legacy and we're excited she loves the Tell us about the moment, Paul, when you saw Bobbi on the red carpet. Oh, yeah, that was -- I mean, I've never been like the leader, co-lead of a movie so it was intense on that carpet and amidst all that craziness and see Bobbi Jewell, 20, 30 feet and gave each other a knowing look and both started crying. It was a lot said without being said and, yeah, she and Watson Bryant that Sam Rockwell plays said after seeing the film they felt like they had Richard back for like two hours so that was -- I mean that's the best -- I don't need an award. That's the greatest compliment I'll ever get. I tell you what, you nailed it. You even look so much like Richard. Yeah. We look like we're from the same corn fed area. Yeah. That's for sure. That beautiful 'stache. Love it. I love it. For you two when you saw Bobbi after seeing the screening and, you know, playing somebody who is still with us, thank goodness, that's a responsibility. Huge, huge responsibility. We were just beginning to do the red carpet and that's when I heard she loved it and I was like, oh, thank god. Oh, thank god because as I said she's still in so much pain about it and I wanted her to love what I was doing and when I met with her I said, you know, I want to get this right and she said, just be me. No big deal. Just be me. You talked about Sam, Olivia wilde. Jon hamm. What is it like for you -- Kathy bates. For you, Paul, to be in the cast. Even our, you know, other supporting cast, Nico and Dylan, all these people, everyone just showed up like it was the super bowl. No one showed up for a scrimmage. Everybody was ready to go and they should have been very intimidating but they were all warm and client and collaborative. There was no oscar-winning ego and there was no separation. Everyone got really close really quick. It was a great ensemble. You think about the cast and then think about directedly Clint Eastwood. That's enough to scare you right there. That's it. We're so happy you joined us. They call it the Clint fog when he's directing especially you just kind of -- It's how I feel about George Stephanopoulos. You feel that way about George, you're right about that. Thank you both and all the ago -- accolades are well deserved. "Richard Jewell" in theaters this Friday. Make sure you check it out.
