Transcript for Josh Radnor's 'Liberal Arts': Love on Campus
Don't miss "live," this morning. Different times in different markets. But don't miss "live." Congratulations, kelly. George? I thought you were going to get it out of her. But here is josh radnor, starring in a new film, "liberal art," who goes back to his old college and falls into a complicated love. Take a look. I feel weird about being here. Why? Don't. I don't know if you know this. But I'm a few years older than you. You are? Just a few. I'm not necessarily saying -- i don't want to get ahead of myself here. Oh, wait. Sorry. You -- did you think this was, like, a romantic thing? You're kidding. Oh, my god. Come here. And josh radnor joins us now. They say write what you know. This is inspired to a trip back to your college, kenyon. I went to kenyon, my alma mater. And I was 35 at the time. And suddenly, I realized I was nearly twice as old as the students there. It's hard. It was a little confusing for me. I had not planned on aging. But it happened anyway. And I started thinking about aging and nostalgia and how much my college years meant to me. I started to think about this guy. Your character is one of those guys that just -- you can't say necessarily peaked in college. But loved it. And hasn't yet found his way in the grown-up world. He loved it in an outsized way and just misses the kind of exchange of ideas and the meal pl, you know, the socialization of college. Yeah. He's just a little lost. And he's kind of burying his head in the books and not really engaging in life. But then, he meets this wonder of a girl. And elizabeth olsen is amazing. They are drawn to each other. And sent him into a tail spin. I have to ask you, what do you have against twilight? I don't have anything about twilight. The character of jesse has something against twilight. There is an exchange of whether we should be reading things that are good for us or read things that we enjoy. Just for enjoyment sake. And I had fun writing this argument. She wins the argument, defending "twilight." I thought jesse was the type of character that would judge people on what they read. See "liberal arts." It's a lovely film. Thank you. IT OPENS ON SEPTEMBER 14th.
