Captain how do we know the good guy from his the bad guys. If they are shooting at you, they are bad. Captain America the winter soldier in the box office record this weekend. Getting rave review from critic. One reason why is this man right here. Anthony mack who plays falcon. Best thing since the cat. It works. It's great. Sure yes a lot of yes. It was great man. Nobody knew this movie would explode the way it has. So we are all enjoying the ride. Everybody happy with the way it turned out. Russo brothers were happy with what they did with the story and character. We are all happy. Knew it was going to be good. You said you want to be a super hero in a western. You called marvel for how many years. 5 years. I wrote them letters and called them for 5 years. Then they were like don't call us we'll call you. No super hero but then a year later they asked me to come out here to L.A. And have dinner and talk about it. Yes. Wow! So you must have been floored when the phone call came in. This is a joke. Which one of my buddies is behind this. Nobody would make that joke because I would punch them in the face. I almost wrecked the F 250 I was so excited I was in hi to pull over I couldn't believe it. Did you audition for falcon and how many times. I didn't audition. The they called me and they were like falcon is on the table. I said unleash the falcon. Wait. The dinner what did you do to sell them. Clearly they gnaw you wanted the role. You know, it's like dating. Like when you meet a director or producer for the first time you don't want to take the lead. You want to sit become and listen. Just let them talk and soak it in because if you are talking so much and they are talking so much you don't really know if you can work well together. At this point you could blow it. You are already in the door. I would have blown it. Asking you to have dinner. You are there. So just sit back and. Drink at dinner a little wine. Yes. Sure. Just a glass of wine. Nice to cut the spirit. Here's my vision for falcon. Whoa whoa. Too much. Because you don't want to show them your real self until you get the contract. Then unleash the beast. Did you have a vision of falcon as kid growing up were you a fan of the comic. In the comic bookies a street hustler type guy and he's involved 3 incarnation in the comic book involveded over a long period of time but with this we decided to make, what they decided I wanted to do spandex with a bird on my shoulder they decided to make him more of a military tactical expert so he can he and cap could have the relationship they have in the movie. Have you seen this with an audience. Gone in a theater and got the feel. I had. It's pretty dope. Usually you come on the screen and people go but this one people are just rocking. Not premier. Just a regular audience. Literally run in the movie theater grab popcorn hat low and go in. Anybody recognize you and spot you. Well I trade to Wendy Burch it opening Thursday night in New York and I walked in and one guy just started screaming. This is a dream. So I turn around and walked out. Fichlt he's still chasing you. New yorkers are crazy. Pretty much. So I wept in one day early. There was a different crowd family stuff app I was able to watapp I was able to watch it then. Wow! Now you were going to become an engineer. Yes. If not for the acting thing. I wanted to be a mechanical engineer because my brother was working on his degree at Georgia tech and I was going to the youth engineer camp and blowing stuff up. All you do is blow stuff up all day. . It didn't work out. I think it worked out. I blew too much stuff up. Is it true when you get mad at something you fix stuff. I fix and build stuff. My dad was a contract or and all my life from the time of 13 put a hammer in my hand we couldn't afford toy so I would take the stuff hi and make something out of it. Tell me about your partnership hate to change topic but cycle across America. Do you have beautiful. I bathe regularly. Twice a day. This is shining. So yes. The we came together and did the limited edition labels for recycle across America and basically a program where we are training to raise 50,000 dollars to create 65,000 recycling universal label to go in schools across the country. You go tout recycle bin you have to say okay this is can. This is paper. Can I put plastic so recycle across America what they have done which is really greatest created universal labels and they are putting the labels across the country so people know how and where to recycle. And something very important and basically with this if you bring in 10 empty I guess things? A containers. I don't know. Women call them containers. You get one free product and all of that goes, we are trying to get two million empty contain sores we can recycle them. Right now we are at 1.6 million containers so it's a very important cause and it's something that I think if we all kind of get into we can make a difference. Let me smell it. Smell it.
