10:30 pm
in eastern europe there is a growing e. u. bear who stand off over illegal migration. there are western reports. russia is amassing troops within its own borders. and of course, there is the self inflicted crisis of european energy supplies. it is no coincidence, some recalling this hybrid war, but who is hybrid war against whom? ah, we're seeing high levels one key creeping in economic life. and i think we're all aware of the disruption of global supply chains with spike in the cost of energy. we're seeing a reappearance of inflation and i think all of these constitute economists cool down the sign risks which could mean the weather is still ahead of us despite the moderation of the severity of the timing juice crisis.
10:31 pm
hey folks. next up on dennis miller plus one, a good canadian boy or abbey, a mel. i think he's up in toronto, you know, from the flash and then he did something called code 8, which i enjoyed. it was on his own dime. so you got to make a lot of decisions over there. and they did a nice top little thriller of a show. he's got a new project out and i'm blanking on it, but he has it. and i'll tell you right about it after this are dennis miller plus one with a pokes. welcome to dennis miller plus one. happy to welcome actor robbie amount to the show: robbie: of course best. none of the audiences for his work is ronnie, on the c w series, the flash. he's also start in the science fiction film code 8. and i think that might have been and how, staying with him and some buddies,
10:32 pm
and they got to do their own thing over there, as opposed to having suits teleporting in 5 minutes to kill the creativity to be exact proud on that robin can be seen next in the film resident evil who help them direct coon city. and imagine the time somebody were told the way back. and lo and they're doing forbidden planet or invasion of the body snatchers. eventually, sy fi films would be based on video games. they'd look at you, go, listen, i'm a futurist, but are even know what the hell that means, but that's where it's at right now. that hits theaters on november 24th. this is robbie and mel. robbie, how are you? i'm good, thanks for having me. when you're up in toronto and we're talking a little pocket before we go on, i think you went up and shot this resident, evil thing in sudbury. i think the great george armstrong of leaf spain is from there. as is alex drew back. tell me about said, very brother, and is there anything happening there or do you get to go home and run lines at night because it's a little little more sedate than usual. i hadn't been to sudbury since i was
10:33 pm
a kid doing hockey trips up there and it still feels like the best thing to do in sudbury is play off. well, listen, as i grow older, there's a few things that resonate with me now. i love to go to costco once every 10 days because it works so well. it's well lit. they have that machine, that bony clean and the out, the things are priced well. and i also had grown much more fond of coffee as i get older because it makes sense to me. so i think in the past like somebody would say, yeah, the best thing, those were not the main is the play hockey. i think that's a great thing to do because the world's gotten mad, and a hockey resonates even more. how far did, how far did you go with that? i know it's in the canadian kids, dna slashed pond experiences, but how far you go with robbie. i played right up until i book my 1st movie i was, i was a hockey player. the only the only guy played against the made it to the show is
10:34 pm
wayne simmons, which is pretty cool. i was in that way when he was there. i had my wayne simmons jersey but most of my buddies kind of fizzled out. it's one of those things. i think, you know, if you're going to, if you've got a pathway to make it a h l by like 12 years old in canada. wow. really. so the, the road presents itself even. i just saw wayne play last night. that's so funny. i watch the kings in the and he still looks good. obviously it's pretty that with the flyers, but he still looks like he's still moving pretty good. what was he? he must have been a gangly kid bad because he's stretch armstrong now. well, what do you remember away back in the early days? it was fast. it was flashy. he'd like to, he'd like to do the drag. you'd like to drag the park and kind of jump out of the way, which we'll get in trouble these days. but he was really good. he's really fast. he played on a team called the toronto aces. i was on north toronto and i played, i would say probably 5 or 6 years against him. never played on the same team but,
10:35 pm
but i think we had some pretty good battles. we hadn't, we had a couple years back to back where we eliminated each other out of the play offs, which is pretty fun. cool. sorry folks. whenever i talk to a cat or played and as a canadian, i got to talk a little park as a, as i said, i'm a big, big hockey fair. you know that hand off from the thing i love about hockey, is they police their own? i mean, you can go so far with the rat, a chat thing at the score, and then somebody on your own team is going to grab it and say, hey, listen, brother way or you know, this is going to show you what we want you to celebrate on a certain new tom and so we got to ship here, we run it a certain way. don't make the clock you and fresh get it together like that fact of our hockey. when you get to hollywood, it is the wild was rather when you, when you left the behind and got into the serial dream like world of show business where people have their head so far up there. sometimes you've got to cut and
10:36 pm
switch back trails to get through it. what was that hand? oh man. i mean i, i literally book my 1st movie the summer before 11th grade. before that, i was just a hockey player who didn't really know what what i was going to do. i think i never looked at the n h l as a possible career path. but i figured i would kind of play in college, maybe get a degree in like, can you see ology and sports medicine, something like that. that's just kind of what i figured. and then i book this movie out of the blue because i look like i can be eugene levy and carmen electra kid. and it was called cheaper by the dozen to a shop for 2 months. and i was like, this is, this is not a bad way to make the limit, so i quit hockey. got into some on camera classes and i just kind of looked at it as, i'll give this a shot and see what happens. one of my buddies i played hockey with was going to university san diego. so i went down south with him kinda hung out his place,
10:37 pm
lay back and forth. and luckily it's worked out cuz i don't know what i would do now. now, you know, i remember i've taken like 2 acting classes and the teacher was sweet and the people were well intentioned, but there was some stop happening in front of me. i thought, wow, i must be active now because this is a train wreck and i got to say, you know, it was the best thing i ever did just because you didn't want to be a pisser with people who are risk in front of us. but what do you think that is like i thought, you know, but i think i'd watch it and think my god, what that acting classes help you or what, what was your big swing thought that helped you start to get better at acting? so i did i, i got into like an on camera class just because i had literally, i had never done anything like it other than this movie. i did commercials when i was a kid. my mom and dad got me into just to like, put some, some money aside for anything from like dental work to canadian whereas
10:38 pm
maybe college. and i think last wasn't especially for me. it was just, i just found it to be a little weird. now. i learned a lot more onset and just kind of trial by fire. i did a show called life with derrick, which was out of toronto. and luckily it was, you know, it was a kid show. so there's not a whole lot of critic sway. and i learned a lot and i had a lot of fun onset, and then i've been lucky enough to just work with super talented people who have have given me a shot. and given me advice and i've just learned from watching. and i also think that acting has kind of started to steer a little more towards the, you know, even the sy, fi and stuff, i think everything's trying to ground itself a little bit more. i think if you're a little, you know, there's,
10:39 pm
it's not that there's no place for it, but it's pretty specific if you're going out there and weird. i feel like most things are, are trying to be fairly grounded, even if they're, even if they're, while you watch old movies now and i enjoy and, but it's definitely a switch in your head and i, by old. i mean, i'm playing 60 seventy's on the old ones or just the different planet, but you watch what the craft was then. and you watch the urgency and the striving to make a character. and you think, boy, we live in such a post ironic world now to strive. you're deemed immediately a sweat act. you almost have to look in susie and about coming to the the project. now kids don't want to see you, you know, for an attic that they want to kind of see as smooth into it a little. so i agree. are a little more grounded now. tell me about the resident, evil. listen for head like me is not a video game guy here, where i see it's called welcome to racoon city. now what? it's a video game 1st. yeah. how it works over a new movie and tell me where,
10:40 pm
what is the longitude latitude on raccoon city. my friend where is that at? so record city is the fictional city that takes place in this in this world based on video game video games. the 1st one resume was from 1996. and it's, you know, some people credit to like zombie making a push back into pop culture in the ninety's and i grew up playing it. i was 8 when i played the 1st one. like, you know, it's one of my 1st childhood video game memory is just in my basement lights off and zombie dog jumped through a window and like the game had legitimate jump scares and just scared the crap body . but you know, i grew up on the games they, they've made movies in the past with a job of which, who was amazing in them. she's in total, my buddy, sean roberts, played one of the characters in them. i'm a big fan of those movies are movie is much more, you know,
10:41 pm
kind of based off from the source material of the 1st 2 games they take place the movies take, the movie takes place in the 90s. it's got a little bit of, you know, camping this to it, but at the same time, it's much more of a horror movie than been the 1st. the 1st ones where they were a little bit sy fi action. it's super fun. anybody that grew up playing the games is going to lose their mind. it's. it's like easter reg after easter egg. the sets are built completely after the game that the director you harness roberts want to cap. com and asked him or ask them for the blueprints to, to the major set pieces, which is a mansion kind of a haunted house side of things and the police station. and he built them, you know, as much as he could to the game. and then anyone that hasn't played the games, it's a fun ninety's horror movie was zombies. and really great music. it's so funny that it's come full circle where you go from a kid in the basement in the dark, with a zombie dog coming through
10:42 pm
a wind. don't scare you to the point now where they're blocking it for 4 hours. and you're everybody's in green screen garb. those lightbulbs attached their head and your 2nd zombie dogs. the worst part of my day right now is no dogs. just a guy with the green thing. right. you got the space goes talk show once that i'm supposed to talk to the brock sitting next to me and it's a paint stir. okay. motion to brock. right now. i'm looking at the painters i get. here's my big curve right here. take the thought of it, which rub a bell and the film is welcome to raccoon city resident, evil, welcome direct can city it's hits, theaters on november 24th. you're not that you put meals name to it. i am by the way, folks, if you're out there she is a great album. i. it's like fiona apple. go back and find. i know you're going to say what's it called? i don't remember any of that. but she could sing up,
10:43 pm
but i do remember scary effect in one of those films, robbie, where somebody gets lasered by some like netting or sub than and they get split up into like a 1000000 little cubes. is that what i remember? you? do you actually remember that dead on a 100 percent? they go yeah, faces fall, limbs, everything, just little cubes. that's a great moment. i know it's terrible. i listen. i was an adult. i was they just like are the rubik's cube? gone horribly, right? so if there's any of and now the effects like today, jeez, if they want to make you feel it's real, they can do it and i'm sure they're doing it in resident evil. welcome to reconsider. all right, enjoy our time with robbie. amount will come back chat a little more about what else has happened in his life. i want to talk to him about that project. he did code aid, i think that was some friends and i must have been liberate released acquaintances because there's a lot of guys and get your way when you're trying to realize vision. this sounds like this one might have been in house talked robbie mal right after this. dennis

10:45 pm
when our mayor took office, he was elected because of his campaign on our city, being a tale of 2 cities, the halves and i have not. and those who have not are usually the ones who weren't being buried on hard. i. the cities always wanted to forget the got hold. island city is wanted to forget about the people who are buried. there is wanted to forget about the fact that there is a potter's field that there was a place where difficult stories are hidden. the fact that we're using inmates to maintain this active burial site, where 1000000 souls are buried, where so much of new york city history is buried is documents of the inequality that exists in the city for centuries. ah,

which is a total honor. he's, he's a black, the show is really fun. takes place in a world where if you know you're going to die, you can upload your consciousness to a digital after life and the run by these big corporations. it's great it's, it's unbelievable he's, he's predicted we shot the pilot and then a year later, it took a year because there were, they didn't know what they were doing with the show. we shot the 1st season and by the time it came out like 4 of the things from the show had come through in real life is just or imagined he has the side. i don't even know if the phrase uploaded exist back when he had this idea. i mean think about that as well when i was with daniels, it must be must be 35 years ago or something like that is when i cross that he had the side the back that no wonder i can see him pitching that at the wednesday table read and say what i've got to thing upload where you upload. 1 you and i imagine

10:57 pm
it was one of those things where we, i don't know if we could do it again. we kind of hit lightning in a bottle with the algorithms on facebook and instagram and twitter before they changed. you could reach so many more people. we the short film was really specially, you know, if, if the short wasn't a good product, there's no where no way we could have done it. and i don't know, it was just one of the things right place right. time. and a lot of people who are really, really talented, believing in us and taking a shot at us. sounds like a bless. i'm starting a crowd funding site, by the way, for all the trolls out there who don't like me. i will tell you what i'm going to make in the next calendar year. and if you guys get together and make it $1.00 more than that a month, i'll never talk in public again. how's that home? i do crowdfunding pretty good. yeah. later. all right, robin. well good kid. 80 kid toronto look beautiful out there to background. looks
