We haven't gone Out and About with Jiminy Glick for far, far too long -- inexcusably long, almost -- so, let's rectify that. Here he is in La La Wood interviewing Steve Martin. Two things stand out -- the first, how low-key and almost straight Steve Martin plays it, almost wanting to see where Martin Short is going to run with it, something that likely comes from their friendship. And the other, once again, how wildly fast Martin Short is.
By the way, a few weeks ago -- when promoting their new limited series on Hulu, Only Murders in the Building -- Steve Martin and Martin Short were on Stephen Colbert's show and talked about the first time the two had met. It was before making The Three Amigos, and Martin Short had come over to Steve Martin's home to get together and also pick up the script.
Short said that when he walked in, he looked around and the first thing he said was, "How did you get such a nice house? I've seen your act." To which Steve Martin walked over, handed him the script and said, "Please get this to Martin Short."
