Letterman recap

Letterman was very giving in his introduction of Matt; he had nothing but pleasantries for Matt. He even went to the point of commenting on how well groomed Matt always is. During the interview, Matt and Dave spoke about events that had happened with Matt since his last visit: new marriage, new baby, etc. They spoke about Lucy being from Argentina and she has been teaching Matt to speak Spanish. Then Matt and cue card holder Tony exchanged a few words in Spanish and then (presumed to be rehearsed), Tony went mazurka, ranting in Spanish and throwing the cue cards in the air and storming off stage. Matt was tickled by it and said, “I don’t know what happened, I just told him I was practicing Spanish with my wife.” Letterman then was very anxious to set Matt up to do his Matthew McConaughey impression. However, first Dave thought it probably appropriate to get all the business out of the way in order to allow enough time give the impression the proper amount of time. Matt and Dave then talked about the movie and how it was to work with Angelina Jolie. Matt said he enjoyed very much working with Angelina and how beautiful she is. He also talked about the days Brad was on set or even Angelina for that matter, because the photographers were there in mass. They then showed a clip of the movie, a scene with Matt’s character interviewing John Turturro’s character; I thought the scene was very well played. Then once all the business was taken care of, Dave allowed Matt to present his impression, which you can see on the CBS or You Tube links. Dave congratulated Matt on his impression, new wife, baby, movie and the interview was over.

By the way, I love your site. I read it every day.
