Good to see you. – [Interviewer] What do we have over here? – It’s my grandmother’s famous rum cakes. They’re amazing. You’re taking one home too. – [Interviewer] Ok, what’s
the most outrageous thing you’ve ever worn, Michael? – What’s the most outrageous
thing I’ve ever worn? – [Mom] Oh, I know right away. It’s that orange plaid suit
that you wore for some award. – Yeah, I was trying
to take a fashion risk. – [Interviewer] Could
you describe your mother in three words? – Uh, mom, loving,
embarrassing – sometimes – and ah, nurturing, very nurturing. These for Dad? – [Mom] Please, take that to him. – [Interviewer] Alright,
what’s your favorite TV show of all time? – Ooh, “Martin.” Can’t stop watching it. – [Interviewer] Would

Chandler as Coach Taylor? – Sly, Rocky. – [Interviewer] How many
punches did you take while filming “Creed?” – Probably more than I
should, but a lot, a lot. – [Interviewer] What was it
like training for “Creed?” – Intense, hardest thing I ever had to do. Physically, anyway. – [Interviewer] And what
was your first impression of Mr. Stallone anyway? – The guy knows a little
bit about everything. I mean, he could tell you, like, who made the camera, where’s this
wood imported from, the desk. The things you don’t
think he knows, he knows. He’s just a little savant like that. – [Interviewer] Alright. So what do we, uh, have
in this room over here? – Oh, this is where all
the creativity happens. A lot of work, a lot of
writing, a lot of thinking. – [Interviewer] Ok. Favorite
video game of all time? – Call of Duty, hands down. – [Interviewer] How does it feel playing yourself in NBA 2K17? – Surreal. I love that game. I played it so much growing up as a kid. Now I’m in it. It’s insane. – [Interviewer] Who’s MVP this year? – Oh, the controversy,
that’s a loaded question. Kyrie Irving, the situation
is just set up for him in Boston that way I think. But he’s a killer, you already know. – [Interviewer] Ok, so
who’s your favorite actress? – Meryl Streep. – [Interviewer] And what’s your favorite performance of hers, ever? – “Death Becomes Her,” it’s a classic. – [Interviewer] What’s your
number one dating rule? – Always pick up the tab, at first anyway. And then, uh, she never
touches the doorknob. – [Interviewer] What
gets you really pumped? – Music. – [Interviewer] What ticks you off? – Being hung up on. – [Interviewer] What are
you most nostalgic for from the ’90s? – ’90s, ’90s, ’90s… Homemade mix tapes. – [Interviewer] Favorite line from anything you’ve worked on? – Favorite line… “Where’s Wallace?” – [Interviewer] If you could hire anyone to make a doc about your
life, who would it be? – Ryan Coogler. – [Interviewer] What would the title be? – The Gift That Keeps on Giving. – [Interviewer] Favorite beverage? – Apple juice. You want one? – [Interviewer] Yeah.

but haven’t had the chance? – Malcolm Gladwell. – [Interviewer] Who’s
the most stylish person, living or not living? – Prince. Pharrell. – [Interviewer] What’s
a song guaranteed to, uh, get you dancing? – Alicia Myers’ “I Want to Thank You.” – [Interviewer] Can you
show me that dance move? There it is. – Ey. – [Interviewer] There it is. – It’s a two-step. – [Interviewer] Alright,
who’s your favorite singer? – Marvin Gaye. – [Interviewer] Favorite novelist? – James Baldwin. – [Interviewer] Favorite artist? – Hebru Brantley, Basquiat. – [Interviewer] What’s the craziest rumor you’ve ever heard about yourself? – That I don’t date black women. – [Interviewer] If you
could have a superpower, what would it be? – Control time, because then
technically you could teleport. – [Interviewer] Who do you
want to play in a movie? – Action hero slash quantum physicist. – [Interviewer] Who would you
want to play you in a movie? – Me. – [Interviewer] Ok, and
let’s say a book was written about you, who would you
want to write your biography? – Me. – [Interviewer] I know you
got to get out of here, but what can fans expect
from “Black Panther?” – Oh, man, I think it’s
gonna be incredibly original, exciting, action-packed. I really think it’s a movie you haven’t seen from Marvel just yet. – [Interviewer] Can you give
a reaction to the following? – Shoot. – [Interviewer] Ok. The Wire? – Baltimore, crab cakes. – [Interviewer] Philadelphia? – Cheesesteaks. – [Interviewer] Fidget spinners? – Video games. – [Interviewer] Your sister? – Mom number two. – [Interviewer] Your brother? – Extremely loyal. – [Interviewer] New Jersey? – Newark. – [Interviewer] Your fellow
73-question alum Zac Efron? – Heartthrob, I guess. – [Interviewer] He’ll be
flattered to hear that. – Hey Google, what’s traffic
like to Hope and 8th Street? – [Google] There’s light
traffic on the way to Hope and 8th Street, so it
should take twenty minutes. What’s the most important thing that’s missing in the world right now? – I think the world is
missing a carbon tax. – [Interviewer] Michael,
it’s your parents. – [Mom] Michael. – [Interviewer] Look who’s back. – [Mom] You’re leaving? Here, don’t forget your lunch. – Thank you so much. Alright, man, see you later, bud. – [Dad] Take care. – The perks of parents. – [Interviewer] What’s a cause or topic that you want to share right now? – Police brutality in America. – [Interviewer] What
charitable organizations are close to your heart? – Lupus L.A. – [Interviewer] What’s
something you learned recently that blew your mind? – You can’t lick your
elbow, it’s impossible. – [Interviewer] That’s
not true. That’s not true. – Just go ahead and try it, man. – [Interviewer] No I’m
not gonna try right now, because the last question’s right here. Can I have the honor of saying that I have a secret handshake with you? – Yeah. Alright, cool. You’re coming up? – [Interviewer] Yep, yep, sure. Cool, thanks. – Work on that. – [Interviewer] That
concludes our interview. – Cool, alright, dude. – [Interviewer] Really
appreciate your time, Michael. – Thanks for coming through. – [Interviewer] Alright, take care. – Alright. – [Interviewer] Thanks.
