>> this is a mercy visit.
>> graveyard shift of the "today" show.
>> yeah, yeah, yeah. this movie, when i heard it was subtitled and everyone said it was funny, i didn't realize how funny this thing could be. tell us what drew you to this thing, will.
>> it was -- were you as drunk as i was?
>> absolutely. three sheets. this is delicious. thank you.
>> that's jerry. jerry's the guy to get to know around here.
>> thank you, jerry.
>> this was a crazy idea i had for years and years, to put myself in a spanish language film. i don't speak spanish. i thought someone from american comedy put themselves in this position, something we haven't seen before.
>> in a novella style.
>> absolutely. but i don't speak spanish.
>> we believe it.
>> i studied it pretty closely, worked with --
>> did you do the rosetta stone ?
>> i did for like a day. yeah. it was terribly hard to figure out how to use it. and -- but mr. offerman, he has to speak span niche the movie horribly.
>> that's right.
>> isn't that easier?
>> not when you're as fluent in as many languages as i am.
>> i heard. like ten.

>> genesis rodriguez .
>> which means beginning.
>> yes. muy caliente.
>> i'm fine. she's so caliente.
>> how was the sex scene ?
>> well, basically -- it's our take on, you know, the penultimate love making scene but it's just a long series of shots of the butt. over and over . and a mannequin gets thrown in just for fun.
>> like the fake horse, the fake body.
>> a lot of massaging of butts.
>> and tender groping and kneading. there's kneading.
>> and yet there was a sensitivity.
>> there was.
>> it was your first sexual experience.
>> it was handled with care.
>> yeah. yeah.
>> i love --

>> but his father tells him that he's not very smart.
>> not very marsmart.
>> that's our favorite scene.
>> and he has small eyes , like eyes like a chicken.
>> but like your mother.
>> my other favorite scene, you have the scene about this is one of your favorite spots that your mother used to come.
>> don't tell that. it gives it away.
>> no, it doesn't. oh, right. it gives it away.
>> let's get it together. what's going on?
>> we really like the movies we see, but this one we are really, really very fond of.
>> when you heard about this movie, when will told you about it, were you reluctant or did you jump right in?
>> i refused, i flatout refused.
>> several times.
>> and i was sedated by my wife, and will came over and there was a whole intervention and --
>> under the cover of darkness we --
>> at the end of it i signed a contract. and it's a three-picture deal.
>> we have a german picture coming next.
>> remake of " das boot ."
>> i think "das boat" would be funnier.

>> we watched it and thought how much fun did they have on the set. have you had as much fun on another set?
>> well, i mean, it was -- you have to remember, i am intensely trying to remember this script in spanish.
>> so i was kind of the boring guy on set. he had --
