(male voice): WHAT HAPPEN IS I,
I HIRED MY LITTLE BROTHER TOM
WHO'S 9 YEARS YOUNGER THAN ME
TO COME ON TOUR AS A ROADIE
WITH MY BAND, WITH THE NATIONAL.
(rock music plays)
(male voice): HAVE YOU HEARD
OF THE NATIONAL? THEY'RE
FROM HERE. I'M HIS BROTHER,
AND I WAS SUPPOSED TO GO
ON HIS TOUR BUS...

> (another male voice): THIS IS
ONE OF THE MOST TALKED
ABOUT BANDS ON THE PLANET.

> I THINK I'M GONNA TO GET
TOGETHER WITH THEM.
I'M GOING TO BE MAKING A ROCK DOC.

> WE DID NOT HIRE MY BROTHER
TO MAKE A DOCUMENTARY, WE
HIRED HIM TO BE AN ASSISTANT
TOUR MANAGER.

> HAVE YOU DONE THE TOWELS?

> YES.

> WATER BOTTLES.

> YEP.

> EVERYTHING'S COOL?

> EVERYTHING'S COOL.
I NEED TOWELS AND
WATER BOTTLES.

> AND NOW WE'VE
BEEN APPROACHED...
SOMEBODY HAS ASKED US
TO TURN THE DOCUMENTARY
INTO A PLAY.

> WHAT PAGE OF THAT--

> BOTTOM OF 3. WHY DID
I GO IN THERE AT ONE IN THE
MORNING, AND I'M STEPPING,
AND I ALMOST FALL ON MILK.

> GREAT.

> YOU KNOW, USUALLY IN
THE WORLD OF SHOW BUSINESS, YOU START
WITH A PLAY, AND THEN
SOMEBODY COMES ALONG AND
TURNS IT INTO A MOVIE.
I THINK WE HAVE A RARE OPPORTUNITY
HERE TO, TO REVERSE
THE CREATIVE PROCESS.

> TOMMY, I UM, I HAD
THIS CRAZIEST DREAM MAN...
ACTUALLY, YOU KNOW WHAT,
CAN I COME OVER--

> THEATER IS MY FIRST LOVE.
AFTER I INTERVIEWED
THE PRESIDENT I WAS LOOKING
FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
I BEEN OFFERED ANOTHER
THING ON BROADWAY, SHREK.
BUT I HAD DONE SHREK OFF
BROADWAY AND I WAS A LITTLE
BURNED OUT ON IT TO BE
HONEST. BUT UH--

> (he snickers) I'M SORRY, GO ON.

> UH, YOU KNOW I JUST DIDN'T
WANT TO, I WANTED TO PLAY
SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT MORE
REAL WITH A LITTLE BIT MORE EMOTION.

> HAVING MATT AS MY OLDER
BROTHER, KIND OF... SUCKS.
HAVING MATT AS AN OLDER
BROTHER KIND OF SUCKS,
BECAUSE HE'S A ROCK STAR,
AND IT'S ALWAYS BEEN...
(bleep) WHAT'S THE LINE?
HAVING MATT AS AN OLDER
BROTHER KIND OF SUCKS,
BECAUSE HE'S A ROCK
STAR AND I AM NOT.

> WHAT? WHERE WERE YOU SWIMMING?

> NOTHING, I'M JUST STANDING UP.
I FEEL LIKE I'M
FREE FALLING A LITTLE BIT HERE.

> I'M JUST STANDING UP.
I'M JUST, I'M A LITTLE, I FEEL
LIKE I'M FREE FALLING A
LITTLE BIT HERE.

> WELL THEN, PULL
OUT OF IT TOMMY.

> YOU DON'T HAVE ANY
RESPONSIBILITY. YOU'RE
A (bleep) ADULT.

> AM I FIRED OR WHAT?
(indie rock music builds)
KEEP IT OVER YOUR HEAD,
ABOVE THE CROWD, BOOM.

> DID YOU COME UP WITH THAT
YOURSELF OR WAS IS THAT--

> I JUST, WELL, I'M KIND OF
STABILIZING MYSELF...

> SO YOU ARE ACTUALLY
CLIMBING OVER SEATS WITH
PEOPLE IN THEM?

> PEOPLE ARE IN THEM, I'M CLIMBING
OVER SEATS. I'M OFTEN USING THEM,
THE CROWD AS STABILIZERS--

> RIGHT.

> PEOPLE'S HEADS AND HANDS AND THEN--

> AND SINGING?

> I STEP, BE CAREFUL, DON'T EVER STEP
ON THE ACTUAL CHAIRS.
(indie rock music continues)

> (Ted pretends to sing)

> HEY, YOU KNOW, YOU KEEP
JERKING THE CORD, IT PULLS
ME OFF BALANCE.

> TOM.

> RIGHT.
YOU NEED TO-YOU NEED TO LOOK AT ME A LITTLE
BIT.

> IS THIS WHAT YOU HAD TO GO THROUGH EVERY
NIGHT? JESUS MAN.

> I SAID, WIPE IT WITH A TOWEL.

> THEN WHY DID I GO IN THERE AT ONE IN THE MORNING.

> TED, YOU'RE KIND OF DOING THIS A LITTLE BIT--

> RIGHT.

> AND IT'S MORE LIKE,
IT'S MORE LIKE THIS...

> THIS IS THE TED THAT NO
ONE CAN SEE. I GUARANTEE--

> THAT'S WHY--

> WOAH, LET ME FINISH.
I GUARANTEE, YOU GET AN
EMAIL AFTER TODAY GOING
DON'T PUT THAT IN THIS.

> IT'S FAIR TO SAY THAT HE'S
NOT RIGHT, BECAUSE HE'S
PRANCING AROUND--

> I WAS NOT PRANCING AROUND.
I WAS NOT PRANCING.
HE DIDN'T SAY I WAS PRANCING.
I'LL TALK TO YOU TOMORROW.

> OK. CHEERS.
