>> jimmy: are we -- are we spending it how we should? and are we doing, you know - it's all that stuff. you know and all these dreams and for the most part, you don't know if it's going to work or not. >> right >> jimmy: the heartbreaking thing about is this, is jonathan larson died before the off-broadway performance he never got to see it >> yeah, the first -- yeah, he died before the first preview of "rent" off-broadway >> jimmy: it's an insane -- it's an insane powerful story, but you -- you did it so well. and i feel like only you can do this, in a weird way i feel like, this is -- i'm watching, it, i'm going, like, "oh, that must have been you." that -- i feel like when i saw andrew garfield sleeping with his casio keyboard, that you've done that. >> yeah, well, i -- i -- the first time i had a rough cut of the movie, i called my -- one of my best friends, collaborator, quiara, who wrote "in the heights" with me >> jimmy: yeah >> and she lives on my block in washington heights and i called her and i said, "i have a rough cut," and i will love her forever for this. she said, "i'm on my way." >> jimmy: yep. >> and, like, ran over to watch it and in the first shot of jonathan's apartment -- and
again, i'm making every decision through the filter of what would jonathan larson do? it's a really faithful recreation of his apartment, his life, his world, you know, new york in 1990 but they cut to john's apartment, and quiara turns to me and goes, "lin, that's your bedroom, dude. >> jimmy: yeah >> "like the futon on the floor and the casio next to it." >> jimmy: right? >> "that's exactly the hovel you lived in when we met and you were 24-years-old. >> jimmy: and you're writing songs, and you're like on the keyboard, and you go, "i'm not getting anything, and i'm figuring this out," and who knows if anyone's even going to hear it. >> yeah. >> jimmy: "but i'm writing 'hamilton' right now, you know, who knows what it's going to be." but until -- andrew garfield -- is un -- >> -- is outrageous. >> jimmy: unbelievable in this >> yeah. >> jimmy: and i go, "did you know that andrew garfield was your guy?" >> i knew he was my guy. i didn't know if he could sing >> jimmy: he can >> which is kind of, you know, a big thing in a musical [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, you kind of want to research that before you do it. >> yeah, but i saw him in "angels in america," -- i knew i needed a theater beast to play jonathan, 'cause jonathan larson lived and
breathed the theater and it needed to be someone who could, sort of, act all of the small heartbreaking moments in jonathan's life, and someone who could, like, play a one-man show single-handedly and play to the rafters and i watched andrew in "angels in america." it's an eight hour play, in two parts. you eat dinner at the theater. >> jimmy: yeah >> and he -- his, like, rib crack was cracked open he was so incredible, and i just left being like, well, that guy can do anything like, he can just do anything. >> jimmy: yeah and -- so, he was my guy >> jimmy: -- he crushed it, man. he crushed it. and then, i'm watching the movie, i'm loving it, and then, who do i see but my best buddy, tariq trotter, in the movie. >> yeah. >> jimmy: as a cameo [ cheers and applause >> yeah. >> jimmy: and i go, "oh, my --" and you shot it so well. >> thank you >> jimmy: the video camera thing -- >> that's my happy place 1990 is like when i was running around new york with a a camcorder wanting to make movies >> jimmy: yeah >> and so, to set this up, the conceit of the movie is any time john starts singing, we go into the world according to
jonathan larson. and jonathan larson wrote this rap song called "play game" in 1990, and it was all about how much he didn't like what was on broadway it was just, like, he was deeply ambivalent about it he thought it was really crass and all really commercial. and he was also, like, "and why do i care so much about making stuff for it." and when you watch jonathan do it, it's pretty lame, he's got a sideways pink hat, it's very like garfield rapping. it's very, like, 1990. and so, i was like, "well, in his mind, he's the greatest rappers alive, so i cast one of the greatest rappers alive to do the song. [ cheers and applause >> jimmy: wow. >> and i got to shoot, like, a a 1990 music video >> jimmy: oh, dude, it's so good >> yeah. >> jimmy: it made me laugh and i was just like, i was like, it's so, so fun. but i will say congrats on this -- your directorial debut >> thank you >> jimmy: you hit a home run, buddy. >> thank you >> jimmy: i want to show a a clip >> yeah. >> jimmy: here is tariq trotter
