-I have to comment
on your shoes. Man! What are these jams? -Some Gucci loafers.
Yeah! You’re pulling it off. You’re pulling it off, baby.
Pretty good. -Really, just literally
two minutes ago, I was putting cream on my ankles
’cause they were really ashy, so I’m glad I did that.
-Yeah, exactly. I didn’t know he was going to
cut to them. Sorry about that. Hey, uh —
We’ll take it right out. No, it’s cool, because
they’re nicely creamed up now. -No, no, perfect.
-Let’s just move away from that. -You have the premiere. The premiere is tonight, right?
“The Dark Tower.” -Yeah. I’m headed there
straight after this. We’re going to go open
that movie, yeah. I’m excited, man. -Your daughter is going to come?
=Yeah, yeah. -Does she think
you’re the coolest dad in the whole wide world? -Uh, not anymore. I mean, she’s like —
No, she loves me, but she — You know, she just tells me
to calm down a little bit. You know? -‘Cause why?
You just love her too much? -Well, she just thinks I’m
trying to be cool all the time. I’m like, “Iamcool.” -Exactly! Yeah, exactly.
Youarecool. [ Cheers and applause ] -Jimmy, she’s always trying
to quiz me on rappers, and I don’t know
who’s who anymore. -Yeah, me neither.
I don’t know anything, yeah. But that will be fun.
That’ll be a big deal. -I’m excited.
The film’s a good film. And, you know, like —
-Stephen King, I mean, come on. -Yeah, Stephen King, right?
-No one gets better than that. Did you get to
meet Stephen at all? -I did meet Stephen on the set. He was really excited
about me playing the part. -I’d be frightened.
He scares me. [ Laughter ] Like, I don’t think —
I’m happy I don’t know him. -Yeah, there’s
a lot of darkness. -I love him, I respect him.
I don’t want to meet him. It’s just — He scares me. He’s the best at writing
the horror things. But, I mean, you got to be
a little demented, you know? -There’s a lot of darkness. I mean, if you write
all those things, right? -I gave him a hug immediately.
-You did?! -I was like, “You need one.” -You hugged Stephen King?
Yes, yes. “You need a hug.” He does need a hug.
-He needed it. He needed it. -[ Laughs ] Oh.
He’s a genius, man. He’s great. -He is a genius, yeah. -I always find some
interesting facts on you when I do research on you. You wanted to be a deejay
at one point. Is that right? -Yeah, yeah, I mean —
-A radio deejay. -A radio deejay, yeah, yeah.
I deejay now, but I — I wanted to be on the radio
with the mic, you know, “The midnight hour,
ladies and gentlemen. How you doing?” You know what I mean? “Hey, yo, this, that. All right. We’re going to take
it down for you tonight. Look, I know you’re
feeling it at home, and, you know, things —
You had a hard week. But that — Just listen to
Idris on ‘The Quiet Storm.'” [ Cheers and applause ] -“The Quiet Storm”?
Did you ever do it? -I did. I did do it one time. but, yo, check it out. It wasn’t
exactly how I planned out. Well, I answered this ad
for a radio station. You know, young intern.
Boom. Took it. And it was actually
a hospital that had — No, for real,
they had a a hospital that had its own radio station, and they would play, you know,
music for the patients, and they could click on,
and they would get shout-outs. -That’s a good idea.
That’s a great idea. -It was great,
but it was just — The shout-outs were weird.
You know what I mean? It was like, you know, “Hey, Mr. Davis, how you doing? I hope that catheter
is looking okay over there.” -“Hope that catheter
is looking okay.” Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
That’s a bummer. -It was a bit awkward in places,
but it was a good experience. -“Hope that catheter
is looking good,” yeah. -But then you — Did you do,
like, a pirate radio station? -Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah. Probably when I was
about 19 till like 20, I worked on…
How does that work? -…Climax FM.
-Climax FM? Would you like — Would you
be in a van or something? -No, no, no, we used to be
in a little tower block in North London. North London. I can’t give you
the address, of course. But North London —
-Really illegal, yeah. -Yeah, it was illegal, yeah. And I had a show from
6:00 till 8:00 on a Saturday. I had the drive-time show. I loved it.
I loved pirate radio. -Were you ever scared that
you were going to get busted? -No, no, not really. I mean, ’cause basically
you had to climb up a couple of roofs
to get into the studio. -No one could be
bothered, right? -It’s just awkward.
You’d get into your show. You had, like, dirt and leaves
and dust all over you. -Yeah. Yeah. Let’s talk about “Dark Tower.” You, Matthew McConaughey.
He’s great. He’s great. -Yeah, he’s a good guy.
You know, we — We only had like two, three days
actually shooting, me and Matthew.
-Oh, really? -Yeah, ’cause, you know,
he didn’t — He didn’t work much,
if I’m honest. But, you know, I…
[ Laughter ] No, I’m serious! He had like four days
on the movie, and I had the whole movie.
-Yeah, exactly. Whatever. Yeah. -But, you know,
he’s a really — he’s a — -That’s hilarious.
He’s a good dude. He’s laid back. He’s cool.
-He’s very funny, yeah. -Did he do, “All right,
all right, all right”? -“All right, all right.” No. We had like three days of press, and I heard him say that
about 15 times. -Yeah. ‘Cause everyone
asks him to say it, right? -Everyone asks for that. So — But I got to know him this trip,
and he’s really good. He’s a great actor. He’s
very dedicated to what he does. And I learned a lot from him,
just watching him work. It was good.
-Do you remember your first line in a movie? Does that stick in your head? Do you have an “All right,
all right, all right”? -My first line.
Oh, my first line was… [ Laughs ] “My bike!” [ Laughter ] -Yes, of course, yes! That’s fantastic. Wow! -Thank you, thank you.
-Iris, now everywhere you go, people will be like,
“Dude, say, “My bike!'” What did you say? “My bike”? -Yeah, I was doing
an infomercial for — for — I guess a lot of bikes
were getting stolen, so someone was like,
“Let’s make a commercial about guys
locking up their bikes.” And I played it
while running up this hill, and my bike was supposed to
be there and it’s not there. And I look.
The guy’s stealing it. I go, “My bike!” [ Cheers and applause ] -“My bike.” It’s fantastic. I love that infomercial.
It was my favorite. -My mic!
