Transcript for Gael Garcia Bernal on Starring in 'Mozart in the Jungle'
So if you are your new year's resolution was to watch television, we have a great way to break it. The award winning "Mozart in the jungle." In it golden globe winner Gael Garcia Bernal is not the kind of guy who likes to follow the rules to say the least. Check it out. Hey, how is it going? Hello, maestro. How are you doing? I'm good. This is the ladies room. And? It's for ladies. One day it will be everybody's. One day. How much fun is it to play this role? It's incredibly fun because he's so impugn -- he can get away with anything and I like that about the character. And the last time I saw you, you had just accepted and walked backstage your golden globe award for this role. It was really nice to see you that night. You were glowing. So where is it? Thank you. Where is the globe? It's in my kid's room. In your kid's room. Where the toys are and stuff. I left it there. We were playing and I don't know, it's a very safe place for them to have it. Yeah. Yeah, because they won't play with it. It's very heavy. It's not a video game. Yeah, it's kind of marble so, okay, like, yeah. It's an interesting way to look at it. Well, congratulations. It's well deserved. I understand obviously you play a maestro, a conductor and it's based on a real person. It's loosely inspired gustavo, a famous conductor and also we take from all the conductors from past life, you know, from I mean from early 20th century to this year -- I mean to now and I don't know, I take them and we make a strange melange there. Something if you were doing a psychological profile, is there something about a conductor you could describe what drives them? Normally they're geniuses and as geniuses they control everything that goes on in the world of this mathematical conjunction of notes, music but then in real life when they're faced with real life, life is not as easily controlled, exactly. So -- Like you control your horn section. Exactly. I think that's the main like obstacle that Rodrigo finds himself. He has a very weird and very interesting approach to life but in music he flows completely. I keep watching the monitor. I love to watch you on the show. You are so convincing. Thank you. Do you have a clue what you're doing with the stick? Sometimes I feel like but I think that's the point where exactly I have no idea. Like but that's when -- I don't know, I fool myself perhaps into thinking, oh, this is working, this is working and the musicians are really nice, they help a lot, as well. Because we work with real musicians and they're very supportive and they laugh a lot. Which is good because this is a comedy and that's what they should do. If this wasn't a comedy I would be in serious trouble. It's a comedy but seriously it is a comedy but it's unlike anything that we've seen. It's very clever and very unique and it's on Amazon. Can there a freedom you get as an actor doing a show for a place like Amazon versus more traditional? Absolutely. And that is incredible because I never thought -- I mean I didn't know what to expect because this kind of series that are done to show internet, I mean it's kind of like very new. It's still very new. You never know what -- Right. Is it public access? What am I doing? We have complete creative freedom. I feel completely just loose in a way to try out and to experiment and I have to be -- I mean, I'm really grateful, we all are in the show, they let us do whatever it wants. It shows. It's nuts and all the right ways. It's great to meet you. The award very well deserved. Thank you. It's been a true pleasure and want to tell you all if you haven't seen it, you must. Season two, "Mozart in the jungle," available now on Amazon prime and we will be right back.
