Gus Delario... | the invisible man is Gus.

He's one of those guys...

who you feel like | you know them really well...

but when | you think about it...

you don't really know them | at all, you know what I mean?

And, you know, obviously...

you look at his track record | of all the movies he's done...

He's been very successful. | Almost every actor in town...

wants to work in, you know, | one of Gus's movies.

I've done | some mean things in my life.

Yeah. And sometimes, | the... ahem, ahem...

the worst part is | is that sometimes...

it doesn't bother me.

I just say, well, | yeah, this is mean.

I wanted to be mean, | and I was mean.


Well, I have to be | somewhat judgmental...

because of what I do, | you know...

so I don't think | that it's such a bad thing...

to be judgmental.

I think that's | how you get through life.

You have to assess things...

and people do it | about you all the time...

and that's life, | and it's too bad.

I think there is | no amount of money...

I could have been paid...

there is no deal | that I could have made...

that she would not have felt | that I had been too passive...

and that... I think that...

her opinion of me | on that level...

was formed before | the movie was ever sold.

I think it has nothing to do | with the movie, frankly.

It's frightening. | It's monstrous.

It's evil | to not have feelings.

So I spoke to Carl about it, | and we discussed it...

and we went immediately...

to the most monstrous | character...

we could think of in history...

you know, Hitler himself.

Yeah, they're always | trying to set me up...

Lee and Carl. They...

Well, they never have | introduced me to anyone...

but they always talk about | how I should be dating.

But they're | trying to set me up now...

with this producer friend | of theirs... a guy named Gus.

Uh... we'll see. | I don't think...

a film producer's going to go | for me, but I don't know.

- Catherine? | - Nicholas,


- How are you? | - I'm good, How are you?

Excellent, Thank you, | Thank you for having me,

- Sure, | - Mind if we get started?

So, I play his partner,

An equal partner?

No, I'm his flunky,

if that's what you want to hear,

Is that what you want to write?

Is that what | you want me to write?

No, | No, you can write "sidekick,"

That's fine,

See, the thing is, | I've done a lot of TV,

He's an established star,

I figure it doesn't make me | any less talented,

So, no,

Look, if I'm going to make | the leap to the big screen,

I expect to work for it,

Don't that make sense?

Don't you think | most black actors,

expect to have to work | to make that leap?

It doesn't seem to happen | as often with white actors,

- Jesus, | - Don't you find that the case?

A couple of movies,

15,20 million dollar paychecks, | magazine covers,

OK, is this the kind of story | you want to write?

We can go there,

Trust me, I've got plenty | of opinions on the subject,


Carl, | I've reached the point...

where I can't continue | in this marriage.

I'm writing because | I can't take any more...

emotional confrontations | about it.

I'm out of ideas, | and I want to make a change.

When I get home tonight, | we can discuss...

the practical issues | of how to separate.

Please don't call me. | I'm sorry.

"Fifth robbery in two weeks | at a pornographic bookstore,"


| They say it's a woman.


Did you have | bad dreams last night?


Well, I did,

Well, I had a weird dream,

I dreamt that my job,

was that every day | I would go into work,
