    Transcript
    Todd: OK. Jamie, We're going to talk about movies.
    Jamie: OK, Great!
    Todd: What is your favorite movie?
    Jamie: My favorite movie is kind of a heavy movie. It's a called Sophie's Choice with Merryl Streep and Kevin Cline.
    Todd: OK.
    Jamie: It's a, it's a movie, it's set in World War II. Meryll Streep plays a Polish woman who has come to America and she's met a man, Kevin Kline, who has a series of problems of his own, mostly psychological, which she is not 100 percent aware of and she does a bunch of scenes where she thinks of the past and the very difficult decision she had while, during the war, living in Poland, she had to decide between two children, which one would be murdered by the Nazis, and which one wouldn't, and it's an ethical delimna she faced at that time, and she made and immediate decision on, and affected her the rest of her life.
    Todd: OK.
    Jamie: It's a fantastic movie, not the story in itself, of course the story was brilliant, but the acting, the fact that she speaks Polish, she speaks German, She speaks English with a Polish accent, which is amazing, a writer who is actually a narrator in the movie as well, his character is great. Kevin Kline is a basically a psycho character. He is a little bit deranged in itself is pretty neat. So, all in all, the characters, the plot line, the movie, it's fanatasic.
    Todd: OK. Great. Sophie's Choice.
    Jamie: Sophie's Choice. I think it actually won an academy award in 1985 or 84.
    Todd: OK. Great. Thanks a lot.
    Jamie: My pleasure.

I would come and visit and that kind of stuff. We were really excited about it and he was a model at the agency, at the same agency where I was an actor and....so we had the same agent. He went to Japan and was teaching and we were writing back and forth "looking forward to seeing you" all that kind of stuff and I was having lunch with my agent one day and telling her that I had started taking Japanese and I had been planning out my trip and I was very excited about this whole thing and she says, "JJ, I don't know how to tell you this." And I'm thinking,"Oh, my god! What?" And she says, "Yeah, um, Richard's ex-girlfriend flew out to Japan and they got married."

    Jessica: Did you hear from him afterwards?
    JJ: Yeah, we were always just friends apparently.Yeah, so not only adding the "insult to the industry", "insult the industry", is that what I meant to say "insult to injury" was him just saying that we were always just friends.

    Transcript

    Todd: Devon, I hear that you took the train across Russia.
    Devon: Yes, I started in Moscow, travelled through Russia, Mongolia, and ended up in China.
    Todd: Wow! That's a long way!
    Devon: Yes, it was. It took three weeks. I did it as part of a tour with ten other people.
    Todd: Man, that's a cool trip. That must of cost a lot of money.
    Devon: It did cost a lot of money but not a lot of people can say they have done that, and so, I looked in, I researched the trip several months before I actually took it. A friend and I did it together and there was one other American and the rest of the people were from Switzerland.
    Todd: OK. Cool! What was the landscape like?
    Devon: A lot of it was flat and for miles around you could see absolutely nothing, and as you got into Siberia there was scattered trees, and when we got into Mongolia you could see some Camels every once in awhile, but besides that there was a whole lot of nothing.
    Todd: Wow! Just wild camels!
    Devon: Wild Camels around the drinking whole. Yes, saw that more than once.
    Todd: So how did you eat on this train?
    Devon: We stopped several times along the way and upon every platform you could buy food that local people were selling. A lot of it consisted of dried fish and other types of Russian delicacy and a lot of noodles that you heated up with hot water. Every train had hot water on it on every carraige so you were always able to make noodles if you were desperate.
    Todd: So was this a luxurious train or was it a pretty basic...?
    Devon: It was pretty much the most basic you could get. There were no animals on board but sometimes they were coal heated so it was very basic.
    Todd: Wow! Would you do it agian?
    Devon: Great question! Would I do it again? Yes, I would do it again but I would wait several years to do it. One because it does cost a lot of money and two because there are many other things to do and see.
    Todd: OK. Thanks a lot Devon.
