I’m late in listening to this April episode and as I shuffled through @10,000nos I’m so thrilled I landed on Matt’s interview w DB. The theme that really came through for me (because it’s what I needed today!) was FORTITUDE- courage, stick with it in the face of pain/adversity. The only negative about this podcast is that it continuously forces me to pause my walks to take notes!! Such a great format w impactful content. Dig your fire MDN..keep bringing the heat.

First time!

Rank #1: The Go-to Acting Coach of Oscar Winners, Terry Knickerbocker

Podcast cover
Read more

For the past 20 years, Academy Award Winner Sam Rockwell has insisted on working Acting Coach Terry Knickerbocker to prepare for every one of his roles.  An actor himself prior to teaching, Knickerbocker studied at the Experimental Theater Wing at NYU before working on stage with an actor who's technique was so specific and consistent that Terry had to seek out the actor's teacher, the late William Esper.  Falling in love with the manor in which Esper worked after taking his two-year program, Terry began a 25 year stint teaching at the William Esper studio until 2015, when he ventured out on his own to open the Terry Knickerbocker Studio in Brooklyn, which offers a two-year Meisner program as well (you'll learn about the Meisner technique in the interview).  In addition to running his studio, Terry is highly sought after for private coaching with such respected thespians John Leguziamo, Emmy Rossum, Natasha Lyonne, Rockwell and Chris Messina among others.  So, while it was a huge surprise to me that Terry has been a passionate listener of 10,000 "No"s, once I got over the initial shock it made sense:  he, like me, is obsessed with process.  He is obsessed with the potential in human beings, whether they turn out to be future Oscar Winners or someone looking to hone their craft to the best of their own particular ability.  It was an honor to sit down with him and discuss the craft and the long and winding road to being considered one of the best of the best in his field. 

SHOWNOTES: 

Describing what he does as an acting coach, (3:37). Meisner’s definition of acting, “Doing truthfully under imaginary circumstances.”, (4:00). Coaching students to have them be “director-proof” on set, (5:05). “The worst thing is when you walk in not knowing. Time is money. There’s no time on set for learning. You have to walk in knowing what you’re doing.”, (7:05). Interviewing students to have them find their North Star, (11:08). Self-sabotaging through fear, (16:24).

I think I reached a plateau here and I need to train.”, (24:35). Grasping what acting is while at NYU, (27:44). “We’d be in Washington Square Park doing scenes and there would be guide bringing the audience through and they would stop and watch us doing something.”, (28:30). Enjoying the risk of performing in public spaces, (29:50). “It turned out NYU had given me a lot of great experiences, but hadn’t given me a toolkit.”, (34:26). Winning a grant from the Drama League of New York for Emerging Directors, (39:36). “Ultimately to be a good director, you have to direct hit shows, something has to work... It just isn’t as pure to me as teaching.”, (42:05). Crafting the behavior that honors the script, (46:28). “My simple job as a coach is I will always listen and look at what they do firs, and then my job is to make it better.” (49:10).

Rank #2: Actress Sarah Shahi, That Which Does Not Kill You Will Make You Stronger

Podcast cover
Read more

Sarah Shahi is beautiful.  But despite having graced the covers of countless magazines, it would be wrong to call that her defining quality.  To sit down with her is to discover that she has humor, strength and grit that exceeds the average person.  Perhaps her steel was forged in the fires of growing up one of the few Iranian immigrants in Texas, or maybe it was from surviving an abusive father who, addicted to drugs, held a gun to her head at the tender age of 6.  Either way, this former Pageant Champion turned Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader had enough life force, and the help of an incredibly fierce mother and multiple women's shelters, to find a way out of Texas and onto our television and film screens since 2001.  From regular roles on Showtime's The L Word, NBC's Life, USA'S Fairly Legal and CBS' Person of Interest, to her brief but memorable performance opposite James Gandolfini in an Award-Winning episode of The Sopranos, she continues to turn heads.  Her portrayal of Rachel Benham on last summer's gritty Boston crime drama, City on a Hill, further solidifies her reputation as an actor with chops.  Here, she talks to me about everything from growing up as an outsider and using her pain for her art to how she manages to parent and stay connected to her kids despite an incredibly busy schedule that sometimes has her across the country from her loved ones for long stretches of time.

SHOW NOTES:

Sarah's two burning desires as a kid:  being on stage or being a doctor, (3:20). Growing up Persian in Texas, (5:13). How doing pageants starting at age 10 proved to be a great training ground for an adult life as an actor, (6:37).  Playing a lot of sports as a kid and being a Tom Boy despite the fact that she was doing pageants, (8:43). How sports and doing pageants prepared Sarah for her eventual career, (10:07). Sarah's parents' volatile relationship and how they fled from Iran in the middle of the night, (11:24).  Sarah's father's darkness and perpetual addiction, (12:17). When Sarah's father held a gun to her head, wanting to kill her, himself and Sarah's Mom, (12:56).  Sarah's Mom as a Superwoman and Sarah's biggest inspiration, (14:36).  After Sarah's Dad left for a year, how her relationship with him morphed over the years, including a big break and him re-appearing in her 20's to demand money, (15:21).  Hating her father but then feeling like her dark side that she uses in her work is owed to him, (17:25).  "My mother and I, we spent about a year, on and off in the women's shelters until the time that I was about 5 or 6", (19:07).  Mom's thick accent caused people to try to take advantage of her, but if they did the claws came out, (21:45).  The trials and tribulations of growing up in Texas with the name Aahoo Jahansouz Shahi and how she landed on Sarah Shahi as her new name, (22:53).  Studying opera for 6 years, (24:14).  "My Mom always told me that if I wanted more I had to give to myself, she couldn't do it for me", (25:07).  Being the captain of her HS volleyball team despite being "fun size", (25:42).  Hated cheerleaders because they were popular and she wasn't but somehow, only 2 years after graduating HS, she graced the cover of the 99/2000 Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Swimsuit Calendar, (26:49).  A crazy scheme to get to Hollywood that involved trying out for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders first, (29:20).  How Robert Altman changed the trajectory of Sarah's career and life, (30:29).  "I quit everything: I quit the cheerleaders.  I quit school. I had a cherry red pickup truck and, yeah, I packed up my car and my Mom and I drove to California.  And then I never looked back", (32:29).  No Plan B, (33:23).  Hysterial first audition story, (34:11).  Kevin Hart, (36:58).   When asked if Old School moved the needle for her career, explains that she always feels like she's at the beginning and the hustle never ends, (38:06).  One episode of The Sopranos that had a greater effect on Sarah's career than years of other TV, (40:24).  The nature of being an actor and knowing that most of our work will go unnoticed by the majority, (42:05).  Looking at an audition as an opportunity to exercise her unique take on the material and do it differently than anyone else, (44:25). Acting is like Jazz:  it takes place between the lines, (45:13).  Doing City on a Hill was a big departure for Sarah, away from Network TV, (47:00).  Taking risks in our work still does not guarantee us rewards in our hoped-for timeframe, (49:31).  A longtime marriage in the entertainment world, (50:30).  Go with your heart, (51:22).  Parenting - trying to be an actor and a soccer Mom, (52:09).  Shonda Rhimes' book, The Year of Yes, (56:04).  Being there for your kids even when you're not in the same city, due to work, (56:56).  Coming from a mother who worked, (58:01).  Advice to younger self:  what age?  What advice?, (59:20).  "We've only got this lifetime", (59:43).

Rank #3: Eric Christian Olsen, Actor, Choosing Hope over Fear

Podcast cover
Read more

To most other Actors, Eric Christian Olsen's career is enviable. And he lives with extreme gratitude for the opportunities he's been given. But he also has a sense of humor about himself so when I asked him for some "No"s in his life, prior to our interview, he said, "Bro, just check my IMDb page. 95% of those jobs have been failures!" His adoption of Winston Churchill's quote, "The definition of Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without the loss of enthusiasm" is all over this chat. Our conversation includes...

Knowing a person's character by how they treat a waiter.

Using one's position and power for good, to help others.

How to refuse to be defined by your job.

How to assemble a team, multi-task and get more shit done than the average human.

How to make decisions from a place of Hope rather than Fear.

How to bounce back from disastrous results by placing more emphasis on your experience than the outcome.

The most valuable lesson you can teach your kids: How to "figure it out" when things go wrong.

Adrianne Haslet wasn't a runner on April 15, 2013 when a terrorist bomb detonated at the Boston Marathon.  Almost dying and losing a leg because she just happened to be near the finish line "wondering what all the cheering was about", the 3rd ranked ballroom dancer in the world was no longer able to dance professionally.  She shocked herself when she told Anderson Cooper on Live TV that she'd not only dance again, but take up running and finish the Boston Marathon.  Now she's changing history.

Rank #5: How to Bet on Yourself, Comedian/Actor/Podcast Host (TFatK), Bryan Callen

Podcast cover
Read more

Bryan Callen tours the world as a standup comedian. As an actor, one of the original MAD TV cast-members, he will finally have his own show (Schooled, a spinoff from The Goldbergs).  And as co-host of the wildly popular podcast, ‘The Fighter and The Kid’, he is known intimately by millions of listeners. But it wasn’t always this busy. A believer in self-discovery and knowledge-seeking, Callen chose to bet on himself rather than waiting around to be hired. He is not afraid to speak his mind, and speak it he does. Callen riffs on the importance of podcasts because of their ability to expose people to new ideas.  He rails against “cancelled culture” and the dangers of political correctness.  And he gives his definition of humor.  Callen proves that having a point of view and expressing it, while sometimes polarizing, is the only way to figure out who is with you, and who’s against you.

SHOW NOTES:

I’m not used to having a steady job or making money, (2:24). I’ve been able to make people laugh, really, for a long time, (05:18). When someone says, ‘how did you get so successful?’, well it took me 23 years first of all, and I failed almost 95% of the time, (08:25). There’s nothing that’s worth it, that doesn’t take forever...you have to put in the work and deep practice, (12:04). You have to have a good ‘why’, (12:56). I believe in action, (14:39). Changing minds is how you’re going to change the world, (25:25). There are winners and losers in life and there is way to behave to become a winner, (27:38). Reality is where you are standing, (29:49). Power at the top is always going to corrupt you, (50:22). The individual is the only category that matters, treat people like individuals, (51:47). My job is to be a silly goose, not a tough guy, not an athlete, not a scholar, I’m a comedian, (57:56). Keep going for the right reasons, (59:58).

Rank #6: Clear Your Clutter with Clutter Healing's Lili Pettit

Podcast cover
Read more

When Lili Pettit left the fashion industry in 2011 to start her own company, @clutterhealing, it wasn't part of some master-plan she'd cooked up as a child. It was the result of a gift she'd begun developing to cope with instability and tension as a young girl being called upon. Once news of her gift was out, her business began booming and her willingness to explore led to a dual career as a Breath Meditation Teacher at Unplugged in Los Angeles. Our conversation includes... ## Why de-cluttering a house is way more involved than you realize.

## How a mindful touch puts clients at ease. ## How beauty and calm can come from chaos and tension.

##

Why clearing space is essential to inviting new energy into a home and new possibilities into a life. ## Why it doesn't hurt when your first client is a celebrity and they like what you've done for them.

## How Meditation, and simple breath, changed Lili's life and work. ## Why some people don't like strangers looking through their underwear drawer and how Clutter Healing overcomes that. ##

Do you get down on yourself cause you can't focus or commit to one thing?  Do you feel like you're failing when it comes to all the advice the gurus of society tell you you should be doing?  Meet Marie Forleo.  Oprah calls her "the thought leader of the next generation" and her mantra, as well as her New York Times Bestselling book, is Everything is Figureoutable.  Figure it out is exactly what she's done: as a bartender, a Wall Streeter, one of the first Life Coaches and Nike Elite Dance Athletes, the creator and host of the award-winning Marie TV with an audience that spans over 195 countries.  She used to feel like a freak who couldn't focus until she coined the term "Multi-passionate Entrepreneur", leaned into her strengths, and stopped apologizing for the gifts she was born with.  Now you can too.  Let Marie Forleo tell you why EVERYTHING is figure-out-able.

Rank #8: Henry Winkler, Your Disability Does Not Define You

Podcast cover
Read more

Henry Winkler is a legend that doesn't need much of an introduction.  It's likely you first knew him as "The Fonze" on Happy Days... or maybe you're a big fan of his current Emmy-Award Winning portrayal of Acting Teacher Gene Cousineau on HBO's Barry, or his equally hysterical performance as Barry Zuckerkorn, the Bluth family attorney, on Arrested Development.  But you may not know that he's the co-author of 35 children's books and one of the producers on MacGyver, or that he had to get over his self-assessment, as a kid, that he was a "dumb" outsider because he was dyslexic.  Despite his stardom and stature, he is full of humility, generosity and a love for the craft of storytelling.  His story is full of resilience and tales of overcoming his own 10,000 "No"s. 

SHOW NOTES: 

Henry's love and appreciation of being able to "do the work", (8:22). Growing up in Manhattan with parents that he disliked for being "severe", (11:30). Henry's relationship to education, being dyslexic, and how it has led him and his writing partner to write a series of books all about an outsider, (14:49). Henry discussing the chameleon-like talent of our mutual friend, Sam Rockwell, (16:40). Being a late bloomer and realizing that making a strong choice as an actor opened his imagination and enabled him to fly, (18:02). From age 7, he wanted to be an actor with no plan B, which hurt him when Happy Days ended, (20:20). Getting into producing despite his fear of being "dumb" because of his dyslexia, (22:22). The doing of something, producing, is what made Henry aware of what he was good at, (26:04). The real work that must be done on one's self, (27:04). "If I change, will I be accepted?", (27:43). A disastrous night at Neil Simon's house, (29:04). A chance at redemption with Neil Simon years later and how he almost sabotaged it out of fear, (31:38). Going to college despite not walking with his high school class, mostly due to his parents' desire for him to go to college, (35:57). Forgetting his Shakespeare monologue at the big TCG auditions and making it up on the spot, (37:17). A valuable lesson about owning his unique gift from a Prima Ballerina, (42:42).  The experience of Barry on HBO, where Bill Hader and Aleck Berg allowed Henry to bring his qualities to a role they imagined quite different from him, (44:09). A comparison of my relationship to my role on Huge in France and Henry's relationship to his role as the Fonze, "it's you they want", (48:10). A lesson about telling himself "no" while playing Scrooge in 1979, (49:16). On Inside the Actor's Studio Henry realizes the role of the Actor in the world - to hold a mirror to society, (51:24). Working with a young Sylvester Stallone on 'Lords of Flatbush' and realizing he was in the presence of greatness, (55:54). “If you know in your center that you’re on the right path, that this is the right thing… ya gotta keep going.", (1:00:09). A story about a pilot called Monty that started out hysterical and then was ruined by attempting to make it politically correct, (1:04:30) Working as a producer on MacGuyver, (1:09:38).

Rank #10: Break Out of Your Comfort Zone

Podcast cover
Read more

Are you afraid of risk?  Have you actually taken steps to break away from the pack and follow your instincts, or are you just waiting, allowing the critic in your head to rob you of your precious days on earth? 

It's never too late to take the leap and start moving toward that old dream that's been locked away, stifled and prevented from seeing the light of day.  Or maybe there's a new mountain you've been itching to climb?  But you're too afraid to risk falling from the height to which you've ascended, so you remain on the safe plateau, knowing that you're not fully living the way you did when you rose to where you are today.

In this episode, I talk about the times I've risked and been rewarded.  And the times I've been too scared to jump, and ended up stagnating, rotting in the pool of my own indecision.  I also discuss my mistakes, where I let my emotions get the best of me, and acted in a way that has threatened my dreams, nearly broken my spirit, and even fractured my bones.

SHOW NOTES:

A hidden Instagram DM from a stranger suggests more in-depth solo episodes for 10,000 “No”s  - you never know where good ideas will come from, (8:27).  If you have an idea/dream, or an instinct to try something...

People want to help, (14:34). Consistency is crucial, (14:41). Fear of “wasting time”…. the knockdowns are the stepping stones, (17:54). The failures and experiences make up the person we become, (18:18). The collective stories, (19:32). Excuses stop you from achieving your goals, (21:14).  Regret is good if it’s used as fuel…regret is bad if it beats you up, (21:25). We can all improve, (24:28). The people who are successful have the thirst to be the best version of themselves, (25:02).  Acting coach Kim: “Why did this script hurdle through the universe and land on my lap right now,” (28:37)?  What does it feel like to be famous, (31:43)?  Everybody has problems, it’s all relative, (32:10). Epiphany: limiting beliefs, (32:41). Don’t let fear protect you from a more colorful life, (36:56). Working through your “red tape”, (37:50).

Rank #11: Showtime's City on a Hill Creator, Chuck MacLean:  How to Make it in Hollywood Even if You're a "Sh*tbum from Quincy"

Podcast cover
Read more

At 33 years old, Chuck MacLean has worked with some of the biggest talents in Hollywood like Brad Pitt and Antoine Fuqua.  Currently, he collaborates with major players Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Tom Fontana, Jennifer Todd and Kevin Bacon with his critically-acclaimed Boston Cop Drama, City on a Hill.  What I enjoyed most in sitting down with him is his ability to say it like it is without worrying what others will think of him.  Sure, it might warrant an "explicit" rating (F-bombs abound), but you'll feel like you're back on the streets of Boston with this self-described "shitbum from Quincy" who pulled off "the biggest con of all" by hitting it big in Hollywood as a screenwriter.  If he can go from being bloody and chased by cops to creating a major hit in under 15 years, maybe you can too.  His "no" stories may just be funnier, and more dangerous, than yours!

SHOW NOTES:

Wanting to write male-driven dramas but learning early on that no one wanted them unless they were placed within a genre film, (4:55). The culture shock moving from Boston to LA, (6:18). "It was thing where I realized, 'oh, to really make a successful story, you just need to care about the characters and the story can be kind of secondary.  Even if you're using a basic genre element, a basic genre structure... if the character's good, no one's really paying attention to that," (7:57). The whole City on a Hill story, starts with that movie 'Black Mass', (9:29). The joys of working with Ben Affleck as a producer, (11:05).  Being hired by for his particular voice by Ben Affleck, (13:50).  The best moment of Chuck's career, at Ben Affleck's house, (15:43).  The surreal quality of success in Hollywood coupled with the blunt truth of how hard the work is, (17:21). The best advice I got early on was that it doesn't cost anybody anything to call you a genius", (18:17). The effortless beauty of Kevin Dunn's acting, (19:22). The influence of Chuck's grandfather on his desire to be a writer, (21:59).  Story about doing grandfather’s eulogy, (23:28).  The responsibility of writing because he knew his parents were broke, (27:00).  Being terrible at everything else and falling back on writing, (27:24).  Chuck’s college experience, (30:04).  "The only thing that made me happy was getting myself out of trouble", (35:15).  Using people’s doubt as fuel, (37:24).  Realizing that normal people don’t get drunk on Friday nights and get into fights and how that freed up much more time to pursue a dream, (39:44). Chuck’s daily writing routine, (44:13). How Chuck approaches fictional stories, (46:55).  "So, like, if I'm gonna go write a cop show about Boston, right?  What does the audience expect that to look like? ...  'okay, well how do I come in from the left then?  And hit them sideways?'" (50:23). The pragmatic, almost mathematical problem-solving aspects of screenwriting, (52:21). “I usually do it based on whatever I’m going through, ‘cause that’s what I’m gonna be interested in writing about”, (54:52). Chucks massive body of work, including short stories, (55:34). “10% of my job is actually writing... 90% of it is just dealing with bullshit”, (1:00:28).  "Big time agent read it, guy's been around forever... he flipped out.  He sent it to an editor and that guy flipped out... they were so excited about the whole thing, and then... nothing ever happened.  It got shot down everywhere," (1:02:23).  Chuck’s “Sicilian” take on how the brain works, (1:08:09). “That’s what I would say to that kid, “believe it or not, it’s gonna work out kinda the way you think it is,”(1:20:14). Bonus Hollywood horror stories, (1:21:14).

Rank #12: Dexter's Julie Benz, How to Thrive Even After You've Been Killed Off

Podcast cover
Read more

Julie Benz is an actress.  She's been working steadily for a long, long time, but probably most recognizable as Dexter's wife, Rita, on Showtime's Critically Acclaimed smash hit, Dexter.  What you may not know is that Julie was a serious figure skater from the age of 3 to 13, on a high level.  Her rigorous training, from such a young age, has no doubt had a big effect on her career, perhaps mostly in the area of her mental game.  This is why she not only survived, but thrived after being killed off of Dexter in the 4th season's finale.  She claims to be lucky.  I beg to differ.  In my opinion, her success is the result of her ability to out-grind the competition, but you decide for yourself. 

SHOW NOTES: 

Growing up as a competitive figure skater, (3:20). Reasoning behind doing well on auditions for acting, (5:54). Transitioning from skating to acting,(9:05). Practicing discipline as a figure skater, (12:30). “I think the hardest part about what we do is when we are not working and when we do get a string of ‘No’s.”, (15:15). Coming off of Dexter and entering pilot season, (17:00). Testing for the show, Dexter(19:55). “For me, it was freeing to take the mask away, but in the eyes of critics and Hollywood, I was so brave to go on camera with no makeup on.”, (21:32). Listening and reacting on set, (24:57). Learning to deal with being replaced, (26:21). Having to go to therapy after such trauma, (27:12). “It was the best thing to ever happen to me. The moment when I was killed off the show. The moment that everyone still talks about.”, (31:34). Suffering from panic attacks finding out her character’s death, (34:07). How Matt and Julie met, (36:55). “In the moments when I feel rejection, I have a method writing 10-20 things I’m grateful for.”, (38:27).  Experiencing a bad audition once in a while, (42:55). Recalling the story where everyone has a bad day, (43:47). Having much love for acting, the set and the crew, (45:57). “I’ve always loved being an actor. It was never thought I was going to do when I was a kid.”, (46:12). Realizing she wasn’t a natural actor early on, (47:35). Proving yourself over and over again in the acting industry, (50:52). Encountering mean producers on her first television series about her weight, (52:50). “The more secure you are with who you are is what resonates in a room.”, (55:47). Overall benefits of challenging yourself overtime, (57:30). Seeking out coaches and mentors, (58:05). Underlying theme of. “You are not alone.”, (58:17). Reframing the “No”, (58:38). Working at reframing her mind through exercises, (59:00).

Rank #13: Former Navy SEAL Jason Redman, How to Overcome Life Ambushes and Find Redemption After Any Fall

Podcast cover
Read more

Jason "Jay" Redman is a retired naval officer and US Navy SEAL.  He also wrote the book The Trident:  The Forging and Reforging of a Navy SEAL Leader and his second book, Overcome:  Crush Adversity With the Leadership Techniques of America's Toughest Warriors, available wherever books are sold December 10, 2019.  But his story, while wildly heroic, is not without strife, setbacks and near death on a battlefield in Fallujah, Iraq 12 years ago the day of this release (September 13, 2007).  But before that, he was almost stripped of his coveted and hard-earned SEAL Trident due to behavior and decisions that were controlled by overconfidence. 

In this thoughtful and humble conversation, Jay teaches us all about the power of humility and hard work, the necessity to "Get off the X" when you are amidst a "Life Ambush" (be it by gunfire, divorce, or financial disruption), and the potential for redemption after ANY disaster or misstep.  In the words that he speaks, you will hear why the sign he posted from his hospital room in 2007 caught the attention of then-President George W. Bush, went viral, and inspired millions to this day.  It is the honor of 10,000 "No"s to bring you this American Hero. 

SHOW NOTES: 

Growing up in a military family, (3:43). Finding out about the SEALs teams from his dad at 14, (5:30). “Something in me, there was just this drive and fire that I always had.”, (7:43). Enlisting at 17 while still in high school, (8:38). Stereotypical idea of Navy SEAL in reality and film, (12:23). “The biggest thing is we are human. We are not superheroes even though sometimes we are painted in that light.”, (12:55). Having more than just physical capabilities to join the SEALs, (15:35). “I am a failure and adversity expert. There are 3 things that enable you to overcome failure, massive adversity or crisis.”, (16:40). Overcoming mindset, preparation and training, and having balance, (16:50). “The bullets were just cracking all around me.”, (21:00). Waiting 35 minutes after being shot at to get medical attention, (25:40). Reconstructing wounds from battlefield, (29:07). “Everyone in life will encounter moments like this and they’re what I call life ambushes.”, (31:03). Overwhelming feeling of pain and grief from life ambushes, (34:35). Mentally preparing for hard situations in life with immediate action drills, (35:17). Evaluating what you have in that moment, (37:18). Assessing what the options and outcomes are, (38:17). “One of the hardest things when you do this is the situation may get worse before it gets better.”, (38:35). Failing as a leader and nearly getting kicked out of the SEALs, (41:56). “They were saying you will be a victim. In that moment, I was like, ‘Hell no.’ I’m not going to be a victim. I’m going to be a victor.”, (44:26). Derailing careers of young individuals with ego and arrogance, (49:38). “Instead of slowing down and saying, ‘I got to fix this,’ I stumbled and eroded my credibility.”, (51:36). Being asked to have his SEAL emblem be taken away from him, (56:15). “I went back to my room, pulled my pistol out and put it in my mouth and was getting ready to blow my head off. Thankfully, I had a picture of my wife and kids on the desk across from me.”, (57:18). Forging the overcoming mindset in these moments, (1:03:55). Supporting combat veterans at Head Strong Projects, (1:11:25).

Rank #14: Gad Elmaleh, How to go from being Huge in France to being Huge Everywhere

Podcast cover
Read more

Gad Elmaleh has been voted the Funniest Man in France, named Night of the Order of Arts and Letters by France's Minister of Culture and named Night of the National Order of Quebec.  He's also worked with such giants as Steven Spielberg, Woody Allen and Al Pacino... but you may know him from his hugely popular Netflix comedy specials, Gad Gone Wild, or American Dream, if you don't know him as "the Seinfeld of France".  Tonight, April 12, 2019, he adds Huge in France, the scripted Netflix Comedy Series very loosely based on his life and comedy, to his repertoire.   

Luckily for me, I had the great fortune of acting opposite Gad on Huge in France, where I learned that his attention to the craft of comedy and his philosophy on taking risks are two of the biggest keys to his immense success.  We talk about comedy, acting, hard work, risk, bombing on stage, starting over from scratch and much, much more.  We may or may not have a few laughs at ourselves for the ridiculousness of two guys sitting in a hotel room talking about themselves and their work.   

SHOWNOTES: 

“For me I want to ‘be in a box’ as a writer, a comedian, joke-teller, storyteller, (6:20). “Comic’s sometimes say ‘I’m a comic and I want to be taken seriously and want people to see that I can be moving”, but you don’t need that, you don’t need to be serious, just be funny,” (7:39). “The comedy I like are the real life comedies that is sincere, sad, real or accident, but I don’t like gags. I like to be touched by it because there is always a problem that is being solved”, (9:15). My dad was a mime and I was inspired by him, I used his influence even in my acting, (11:56). Sebastian Maniscalco is one of my favorite comics in America, his body language is almost a mime sometimes and you see everything that he describes, (14:06). I need to do new material, for the audience but obviously for myself too, I want to have fun. (15:24). "Maybe the thing I fear the most is to get bored", (15:44). Some people will say it’s being a workaholic but I'm just passionate about it, (17:01). “If you don't have the language, it's hard to be yourself.", (17:59). When I met you Matt, you were talking about “feeling saucy” what does that mean?, (22:05). It’s hard to do your job but not as completely as you want, I getting there little by little but it’s a process, (27:50). The great feeling is every time that I get a laugh, I would feel like I earned it, (28:30). “I wanted to go to law school but I failed the exam”, (31:40). “I was more interested in people, humans, history than pure political science,” (32:25). "I'm obsessed with obsession... I'm obsessed with observation. Sometimes when I do a movie and I get bored, I get more excited about observing the crew and speaking to them,” (33:50). Rock bands could relate to this, one day I woke up and had no idea where I was. Then I was wondering why I do what I do?, (40:35). I learned something about stand up comedy, do what’s the most organic, make it natural and go with the flow, (52:13). The word “NO” is the beginning of a very long process that I am not going to give up, (56:50). "You have to see yourself as the starting line, but never as the goal.", (57:50). "The only things we regret in life are those that we didn't do.", (59:13).

Rank #15: Erinn Hayes, How to Survive Being Killed Off a Sitcom Prematurely (by Scoring Lead Roles in TWO Netlfix Comedy Series)

Podcast cover
Read more

Erinn Hayes is funny.  There's no way around it, as I discovered at the table read of the newly released Netflix Comedy Series, Huge in France.  But less than a year before that day, she was inexplicably killed off a very lucrative gig, where she played the wife of Kevin James on his CBS sitcom, Kevin Can Wait.  They say that success is the best revenge and, after the initial shock and depression over the loss of a regular paycheck, Hayes picked herself up and got back in the game.  Not only did she succeed in landing the role of Vivian in Huge in France, but shortly after we wrapped Netflix decided to give her and Rob Huebel a spinoff of their cult-favorite Adult-Swim show, Animal Hospital, with the forthcoming Medical Police.  A real-life Mom and wife when she's not juggling her career duties or renovating houses, Erinn tears the notion of the "glamorous" Hollywood life down to the studs and talks about overcoming 10,000 "No"s.

SHOW NOTES:

“I’ve always been the performer kid, doing plays since I was young. I always knew that I wanted to act”, (2:55). She explains how she stumbled into an amazing theater program in college, (3:25). Once you get in certain doors there are doors that will continuously open for you, but it becomes increasingly harder to get the other doors open, (5:49). “You have to milk what you got and slowly chip away at that wall, until you get that one thing that maybe gets a little bit more views until people start to see you in most ways”, (8:50). Advises young innovators or producers that jump into the, “wait until this gets big” to take it realistically, (13:49). “What I care about is did I have fun on set, am I proud at my work, and did the check clear, 123, if those three things happened then everything else is bonus”, (14:06). You have to go in with the mindset of having huge hope in yourself but at the same time prepare for the worst, (17:29). “Wrapping my head around luck, and how much this business and any business is hard work, the talent to do the thing you’re working hard at and that element of luck, (21:58). Luck is one factor that is tricky to determine, (23:20). Speaks about being fired and learning from the experience and ego, (30:00). “I’d be a sitcom wife if it were her story, and where I have a sitcom husband”, (35:27). I guess the word “NO” just means find a different yes. Just let it go quickly and then move on, it means move on to the next opportunity, (36:18). If there’s some sort of defeat or some sort of “NO” take what you can from it, salvage it, and move on,” (37:10).

Rank #16: Amanda Clayton, The Long, Long Road to City on a Hill

Podcast cover
Read more

Amanda Clayton has hit her stride, with her latest portrayal of Cathy Ryan, the tough-as-nails wife of an armed car robber, on Showtime's City on a Hill.  But long before she was dazzling millions in their living rooms, she was grinding, first as an athlete and then as a waiter and theater actor.  She eventually nabbed a series regular role on Tyler Perry's television series, If Loving You is Wrong, where she did nearly 100 episodes, but it wasn't easy getting there.  We take a deep dive into the long grind of becoming a working actor.  Amanda admits to the sometimes infuriating, embarrassing and painful aspects of her journey, making this episode funny, heartbreaking and, ultimately redemptive.  If you're not in the entertainment business, this episode will entertain you. If you're an aspiring actor, wondering whether you'll ever get your break, this episode is a must listen. 

SHOW NOTES: 

“I told my mom when I was 3 years old that I wanted to live inside the television,” (4:13). Constantly being involved in sports and cheerleading with her 2 sisters, (8:22). Discovering theater will consume most of her time while in college, (10:41). “There was that thing about affecting people that was the truest, purest form of it. That 3 year old mentality *gasp* ‘This is awesome. I want to do this to somebody.’ I want everybody to feel this way. That feeling of want to cry so badly.”, (15:17). “I was so shy. As far as putting myself out there in front of anybody, I was an athlete and a cheerleader. I had a ton of friends and it was a wonderful experience in high school, but I was so reserved and embarrassed to put myself out there in front of anybody,” (16:54). Taking her mother’s advice on going into college as undecided with her studies, (22:32). “It was my first time taking this stand on my own. This is my time and this is what I want to do. I’m going to go with the theatre group and sign up for theatre classes,” (23:42). Seeking out acting opportunities in New York with family, (27:02). Leaving college and moved to NYC at 19 after convincing her parents that acting is her passion, (30:30). Watching the 9/11 attacks unfold from Brooklyn, (31:03). “I think that was oddly enough a big catalyst too, to be like, ‘Nothing is going to stop us from doing what we want to do,'” (32:37). “I bring it up too because without those things, I don’t think I would’ve believed enough in myself,” (35:14). “As actors in general, I think we always need that, ‘Hey, you’re doing great,’ because we are so wrapped up,” (37:58). Encountering pressure from parents to have a fallback plan, (42:57). “I had no idea whatsoever how to run my own business of being an actor. I had no idea of how to promote myself,” (46:30). Living in LA for 7 years and met an agent at the restaurant she was waitressing in, (49:34). “It was just waiting for the thing to come and then, I got into this really awful habit of waiting for something to happen,” (54:42). Losing her best friend to suicide in NY, (57:52). “Every opportunity I decided finally to just go, ‘Ok great, ok perfect. I’m doing this. I finally got that job,’ I started making money right away,” (1:02:25). Being approached by an agent, but they didn’t know what they were doing, (1:07:22). “And I started getting myself really ready to get into that door. Now I can do what I’ve always been able to do, but now I have to do it for the right people,” (1:19:29). Receiving a first audition for a sitcom to be a season regular, (1:20:37). “This is where I’m supposed to be, and I know it is the right time, so I sat down and no one acknowledged me. No one even looked up from a desk. Nothing at all,” (1:22:23). “I want to go in there and I don’t want to let them win. That is not fair. I almost gave up because of them,” (1:30:52). Making full use of her acting techniques, (1:38:27). Feeling an immediate connection to her City on a Hill character prior to her audition, (1:45:37). “I loved getting really to dive into a character in that way,” (1:50:09). “This sucks because I’m never going to do this again. I have to assume right here and now that this is never going to happen ever again in my career. That this is the most incredible role I’m going to get and it is never going to get better than this.”, (1:54:33). “The word ‘No,’ actually means ‘You’re welcome.’ (1:57:59).

Rank #17: Dennis Leary, Juilliard & Everything in Between, Actor Kevin Daniels

Podcast cover
Read more

Kevin Daniels is a big man who grew up in Texas where HS Football is HUGE. But he decided after one season as a youngster that the stage and screen is where he wanted to be. He found success early with a paying gig in Dallas as a teenager. And got into the incredibly prestigious Julliard School in NYC because he was "too ignorant to realize he should be nervous" for the audition. His first gig out of school was at Lincoln Center with Helen Hunt and Kyra Sedgwick. When I met him he was one of the leads on Dennis Leary's "Sirens", but that went away unexpectedly after two seasons causing him to hit the inevitable wall that all actors run into at one point or another in a long career. But through it all, he leads with unshakeable faith and an infectious laugh that lets himself, and everyone around him, know that good times are on their way. Our conversation includes... ##

How one relative's stories of travel and art turned Kevin on to Acting.

##

Why, when you're "big and black" in Texas, everyone looks at you like you're nuts if you don't play football.

## How Helen Hunt's generosity and understanding of the Actor's plight got Kevin his first TV gig on "Mad About You".

## Working with Harrison Ford.

##

The camaraderie of the cast of "Sirens" and how Dennis Leary and Bob Fisher ("Wedding Crashers") created the perfect work environment.

##

The role of faith in fighting the demons of unemployment as an Actor.

Rank #18: Best-selling Author/World Class Climber/Top-flight Speaker, Alison Levine

Podcast cover
Read more
Do you want to know what it takes to LITERALLY climb any mountain? ## Have you ever “failed” so epically that you were the butt of Jay Leno’s opening monologue? ## If you were born with a heart defect, would you choose to climb the highest peak on every continent and ski both poles? ## No pressure, but New York Times Best Selling Author (“On the Edge - The Art of High Impact Leadership")/Captain of America’s First Female Everest Expedition/Highly sought after corporate speaker Alison Levine can confidently answer “yes” to all of those questions.  In fact, she’s such a badass, even the Terminator appointed her to be his Deputy Finance Director when he ran for Governor of California.  But, like every other guest of 10,000 “No” s, what I love about Alison is that, despite her accomplishments, her Ego is tiny compared to her desire to serve others through education and inspiration. ## Listen in if you want to walk away feeling like there Ain’t No Mountain High Enough to keep you away from your dreams.

Rank #19: Mad Men & Parenthood's Emmy-Award-Winning Casting Director, Carrie Audino

Podcast cover
Read more
Carrie Audino won a Primetime Emmy in 2010 for Casting the critically-acclaimed series, Mad Men.  She was nominated another 5 times.  She also won the Artios Award, presented by the Casting Society of America and was nominated another 4 times, one of which was for her work casting the pilot of NBC's critically-acclaimed series, Parenthood.  But for all of the accolades, she is a workhorse, a grinder who feels compelled to "get it right" when it comes to choosing the right actor for the role, even if she ruffles some feathers along the way.  A no-nonsense, straight-talking tough chick from New Jersey, Carrie was an actor herself, having gone through the prestigious program at the Tisch school of NYU.  But, like so many other guests of 10,000 "No"s, Audino pivoted when she realized she felt more joy and gratification from casting than being cast.  Already juggling her demanding career with motherhood, she's now adding yet another title to her impressive resume, with the upcoming launch of her own podcast, "It's Not Personal", where she'll go in depth with well-known actors about their experiences being cast throughout their careers. 

SHOWNOTES: 

The experience of winning an Emmy, (4:08). Having a little baby during Mad Men, (6:17). What it's like to be a casting director, (8:25). “They don’t have to be good all the time. I think actors believe they have a bad day and they’re out. It’s a mutual relationship.”, (9:38). Audino’s upcoming podcast, “It’s Not Personal”, (10:28) Possessing qualities to be a good casting director, (12:15). Carrie's past acting experience prior to being a casting director, (13:00). When she was acting at NYU: “I was always thinking like a casting person without knowing it.”, (16:25). Interning at Liz Lewis Casting Partners, (17:00). Feeling relief after realizing she did not want to pursue acting, (17:52). Beginning to cast on her own in New York, (19:50). Moving out to California for work, (20:23). Growing up as an old soul, (22:10). “I was working 6 days a week, 18 hours a day. I loved it. I loved working hard.”, (23:30). Managing work and personal life, (25:19). “Socializing and small talk is hard. I don’t love it. I’d like to have a real conversation.”, (27:41). Hardships with moving back to New York for 2 years, (29:50). Landing the Angel’s Eyes pilot with Laura Schiff in LA before deciding to fully pursue culinary school, (30:45). The most rewarding thing as a casting director, (34:02). “I’m the person who shuts tests down. I’m the person that’s like ‘I don’t care if we shut down. Let’s make it right.’”, (35:00). Frustration with not having control, (37:02). Not taking a hard “No”, (39:25).

Podcast cover

Despite my hesitation, former guest, Adventure Photographer Roger Fishman (Ep 18) persisted in getting me to sit down to answer some of his questions about my life journey. Reluctant as I was, he convinced me that my listeners might want to hear it, and once we got going I fired away. Luckily for me, Roger took all my statements and transformed them into something that may actually motivate or inspire you. Our conversation includes... ##

Growing up in a rural environment and its effects on my persona.

##

My Mom's use of a Cow Bell.

## How sports taught me to be more than I could be.

## How a trip to Italy turned my life toward the arts, with the help of a gift from my sister.

##

Why my brother likes all comparisons to Wayne from The Wonder Years.

##

How supportive parents and friends have helped me weather the endless storm that is a career as an Actor.

##

How my wife and kids have allowed me to keep taking risks and helped my work grow deeper with age.

ELEW is an innovative artist who began his career as a jazz pianist, performing alongside Wynton Marsalis and Elvin Jones. A decade into his career he re-imagined his style of music, fusing his piano skills with modern rock music – creating rock jazz.

Yoga and Punk Rock: John Porcelly on Following Your Passion

Podcast cover
Read more

This week’s episode was recorded before the events of the past two weeks and yet, like many of these conversations, applies to the current shift in culture. I interview John Porcelly, who has done everything from tour the world as a punk rocker to join a Yoga Ashram.

We chat about why you shouldn’t judge others by their appearance, not going along with things just because “everyone else is doing it”, following your intuition and forging your own path. And most importantly, we discuss the importance of following your passion and your heart.

Retaining Hope and Dignity Against All Odds: Kevin Daniels Re-Release

Podcast cover
Read more

Out of respect for current events and a desire to amplify black voices I'd love to highlight a past conversation I had with my friend and fellow actor Kevin Daniels. In February 2018 Kevin and I sat down to chat about his journey in acting, as a gay, black man in a field that is inherently stacked against its willing applicants.

I believe that Kevin's story, and the spirit in which he has pursued his dream and lived his life, will add value to the questions swirling around all of us right now: how do we retain our hope and dignity when the external powers that be are not providing us with as many opportunities as those whom we are competing for jobs.

Marie Forleo: Everything is Figureoutable

Podcast cover

Do you get down on yourself cause you can't focus or commit to one thing?  Do you feel like you're failing when it comes to all the advice the gurus of society tell you you should be doing?  Meet Marie Forleo.  Oprah calls her "the thought leader of the next generation" and her mantra, as well as her New York Times Bestselling book, is Everything is Figureoutable.  Figure it out is exactly what she's done: as a bartender, a Wall Streeter, one of the first Life Coaches and Nike Elite Dance Athletes, the creator and host of the award-winning Marie TV with an audience that spans over 195 countries.  She used to feel like a freak who couldn't focus until she coined the term "Multi-passionate Entrepreneur", leaned into her strengths, and stopped apologizing for the gifts she was born with.  Now you can too.  Let Marie Forleo tell you why EVERYTHING is figure-out-able.

Dan Bucatinsky on Fortitude

By MMCarle - Jun 01 2020
Read more
I’m late in listening to this April episode and as I shuffled through @10,000nos I’m so thrilled I landed on Matt’s interview w DB. The theme that really came through for me (because it’s what I needed today!) was FORTITUDE- courage, stick with it in the face of pain/adversity. The only negative about this podcast is that it continuously forces me to pause my walks to take notes!! Such a great format w impactful content. Dig your fire MDN..keep bringing the heat.

First time!
