7:30 am
richie supplies, it is no coincidence, some recalling this hybrid war, but whose hybrid war against who hey folks next up on dennis miller class, one a good canadian boy at r i b 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 get to make a lot of decisions over there. made that 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 on dennis miller plus one thing a folks 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
7:31 am
might have been an in house thing with him and some buddies, and they got to do their own thing over there, as opposed to having suits teleporting in a week, 5 minutes to kill the creativity. he certainly did the exact prod on that robbie can be seen next in the film. resident evil who helped come the raccoon city and imagine the time somebody would've told be way back when la, when 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 to go listen, i'm a futurist, but i remember 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? but 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 leach spain is from there as is alex true, beck tell me about sudbury, brother, and is there anything happen in there or do you get to go home and run lines at
7:32 am
night because it's a little little more sedate than usual, i hadn't been the sudbury since i was 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's m boni clean and the out. the things are priced well. and i also have 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 gone mad and a hockey resonates even more. how far did, how far did you go with that? i know it's been a canadian kids, dna slashed pond experiences, but how far you go with robbie. i played right up until i booked my 1st movie. i was, i was
7:33 am
a hockey player. the only the only guy played against the made it to the show is wayne simmons, which is pretty cool. i was in l. a. 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 gel 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 were 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 news, flashy. he'd like to you'd like to do the drag. you'd like to drag the parking kind of jump out of the way, which i'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,
7:34 am
i would say probably 5 or 6 years against him. never played on the same team. but i think we had some pretty good battles. we hadn't, we had a couple of years back to back where we eliminated each other out of the playoffs, which is pretty fun. cool. sorry folks. whenever i talk to a car to play it and is 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 other thing i love about hockey, is they police their own. i mean, you can go so far with the rad tad thing at the score. and then somebody on your own team is going to grab me and say, hey, listen, brother way or you know, this is going to celebrate on a certain new of the tom. and so we got to ship here. we run it a certain way. don't make me clock you and get it together. i always like that fact about hockey. when you get all the, what it is the wild was rather when you, when you left the behind and got into the serial dream like world of show business
7:35 am
where people have their head so far up there. sometimes you've got to cut and switch back trails to get through it. what was that hand? what? oh man. i mean, i literally booked 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 could be huge and levying 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 a 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 who i played hockey with was going
7:36 am
to university san diego. so i went down south with him kinda hung out his place, lay back and forth. and luckily it's worked out cuz i don't know what i would do now. yeah. 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 stuff 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 and in front of you is it 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 that my mom and dad got me into just to like, put some,
7:37 am
some money aside for anything from like dental work to can easy was to maybe college. and i think last was in 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 kids 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
7:38 am
a little bit more. i think if you're a little, you know, there's, 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 your 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, frenetic and all that. they want to kind of see smooth into it a little so i agree, or a little more grounded. tell me about the resident evil. listen for head like me is not a video game guy here,
7:39 am
where i see it's called welcome to racoon city. now what to it's a video game 1st. yeah. the how it works over into moving and tell me where, what is the longitude latitude on raccoon city? my friend, where's that? so record city is the fictional city that takes place in this, in this world based on video game video games. the 1st one reads enables 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 a total my buddy, sean roberts played one of the characters in them. i'm
7:40 am
a big fan of those movies are movie is much more, you know, kind of based off the source material of the 1st 2 games they take place the movies take that 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, than 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 egg after easter egg. the sets are built completely after the game. the b director, your hottest roberts want to cap. com and asked him or ask them for the blueprints to. ready to the major step pieces, which is a mansion kind of a haunted house side of things and a 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 hor movie with zombies and really great music. it's so funny that
7:41 am
it's come full circle where you go from a kid in the basement in the dark, with a zombie dog coming through a window and scaring to the point now where they're blocking it for 4 hours. and you're, everybody's in green screen guard, but those light bulbs attached to their head. and you're 2nd zombie dogs the worst part of my day right now. you just know dot ga dot and just the guy with the green thing. right? you got the space go talk show once that i'm supposed to talk to the brack sitting next to me and it's a paint. stir. ok. motion to brock. right. i'm looking at the painter as i get. here's my big curve of right here. page. search. take the which rub well and the film is welcome to reconsider resident evil. welcome direct one city. it's hits theaters on november 24th. you know, not that you put meals name to it. i and by the way, folks, if you're out there, she is a great album i, it's like fiona apple. go back and find out, you know,
7:42 am
you can say what's it called? i don't remember any of that, but she could sing it up. but i do remember scary effect in one of those films, robbie, where somebody gets lasered by some like netting or something 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? be go yeah, faces fall, limbs every being just little cubes. that's a great moment. i know it's terrible. i listen. i was an adult. i was they this 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

7:44 am
do our own technological debunk things always further on than our ability to feed. we're empowering ourselves to be more efficient for quicker with our transactions. but with that comes a trade off. every device is a potential entry point for security at any machine can be it's an extension of traditional time. the defenders have always been one step behind the attackers with them as well become selection in water. it's not a matter of, if it happens, it's a matter of went through both folks. welcome back to dennis miller plus one,
7:45 am
joining enjoying our time with throbbing, mouth, left or right wing or d. what were your sentiment? what were your robbie way back? i kind of anywhere up, up on forward i would switch to left wing for a one time or shoot, right. but i spent most of my time right wing and center. well, the brief saw the left wing reminds us that the great, my boss, the out there, fine, it's hanging, there might be a true, amazing player. and we're grubby. can be seen in the film resident evil. welcome direct, coon city. it's the latest permutation of those films. that you remember me land and like i said, i keep beckons. they'll send her a check because she got that part in undergrad because i think really cut the you know, she cut the way through for women super heroes because she was absolutely great in that film. as a kicker,
7:46 am

7:47 am
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 they 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 had 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 this idea 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 you and i
