Transcript for Rob Lowe Surprised By 1979 Game Show Clip
I sure will. We have rob lowe here, our special co-host. You've been doing your homework. We've done our homework, as well. We have proof positive, you have done everything in entertainment. You've done movies. You've done tv. You acted. You produced. You did a game show a long time ago. Want everybody to take a look. Oh, my god. A doughnut. Bagel. Things with a hole. A car. A truck. Things that move. A wagon. Things with wheels. Yeah. Look at that hair. Oh, boy. What is happening with my hair and that jacket I'm wearing? That was my first trip to new york. First time? Yeah. I met dick clark. I was really good at the pyramid. We were playing tony danza. And I kept crushing him. I was worried, he's a boxer. Like you, I thought he was going to beat me up. We'll be playing a trivia game the next half hour. I hear you've been studying for that, as well. Bring it. You've been doing so much great stuff. I didn't realize how well prepared you were for morning television. Drew peterson, a big story we did here. And this one coming up, prosecuting casey anthony. Tell us that. If you're a news junkie like I am, you couldn't avoid that story. And I figured I knew what the verdict was going to be. And when the verdict came down, I was really surprised. So, when it came to me with this amazing script, based on the book, written by the prosecutor, jeff ashton. And it's a look at how something can turn out so differently than the entire country expected. Everybody was surprised. What happened with the prosecution? Here's a scene from it. So, be calm. Tell the truth. And when I object, and I will, stop talking until the judge rules. I know casey did something to caylee. I just don't know what. And I'm glad the trial is starting. I'll finally know the truth. I'm not going to lie to you, george. You've heard enough lies to last a lifetime. I don't think we're ever going to know the whole truth. You're the prosecutor, jeff ashton there. They were surprised, too, by what happened, weren't they? Absolutely. In fact, the reaction that jeff has when the verdict is read is, wow. And it's just a very interesting look at our legal system. Does the media play a role in it? Does t process by which we pick our juries play a role? And it's really a compelling story in a subject matter that's already compelling to begin with. I know you're a political junkie. Your next movie "knifefight," you play a political consultant. I played an insider in "the west wing." But I never play the hired gun, who cleans up the messes and rolls into town. I have this movie later this year. You know, I run six campaigns at once. And do really outrageous things. You have so much fun with that. We've been getting tweets all morning. Everybody knows you're into politics. And someone on facebook sent it in. Rebecca wanted to know, with your love of politics, do you have any interest in running for office one day? If so, which office? I love politics. But I have to say, I'm so disheartened that it's always about what we disagree, as opposed to what we all agree on. I believe that no matter what side you're on, there's so much consensus on big issues. But people who run, talking about where we agree, seem to get drummed out so early. So, all the centrists are gone. The rockefeller republicans are gone. The blue dog democrats are gone. You have worked for both sides. I have. You've gone both ways. I'm a registered independent. And I'm looking for where I can agree with people than disagree. I don't know if they have me. That's a long no. Yes. Okay, yes. Stick around, a lot more to come with rob lowe.
