We've got Billy!
More nervous before the start of hosting the Academy Awards or before hosting SportsCenter?
SportsCenter, without a doubt, only down...no free tux.
Do you ever stop and think what might have been if Marshall hadn't taken away baseball scholarships?
Every second of every day.
As a grandparent, how much of this movie is autobiographical?
The themes of it. Old school versus new school. Please go. You'll really love it.
Where is that double signed Mickey Mantle program today?
You'll see it in a second. It will be on the show. It's in my office.
What do you think about the Yankees' new fiscal restraint?
It's for real, because we just signed Bubba Crosby.
If you would have been a baseball player, would you really have been a leadoff hitter?
No, I would have been a knee injury.
Did you do this film just so you could get to work with Marisa Tomei? I mean, that would be a pretty good reason.
I like the way you think.
Should you be up for some sort of lifetime achievement award or persistence award by being a Clippers fan all these years and finally seeing them good again?
As Charles Barkley said to me, you are one patient man....or really stupid.
You're a big Yankees fan, so how could you wear a Mets cap in City Slickers? How could you Billy?
I'm playing a character who rooted for the Mets, that's why.
Does where you sit at Lakers games signal the size of your celebrity? The closer your seats are to the floor, the bigger celebrity you are?
I don't sit at the Lakers games.
Bigger accomplishment - winning American Comedy award for When Harry Met Sally or fouling off a major league pitch at 60 years old?
First of all, it as 59. Fouling off the pitch. It was way too cool.
When fans come up to you, which character or movie of yours do they mention the most?
Mike W. from Monsters Inc.
Or they tell me I was really good in Splash.
What's something about Mickey Mantle that you think fans don't understand about him that you learned through your friendship with him?
What an intelligent, charming, funny man he was.
What do you think about Toronto going all in for the division?
If you got it, flaunt it.
With the Nets moving into Brooklyn do you think a professional baseball team will follow?
So, we're not talking about the Mets then?
Which SNL catch phrases will you incorporate as SportsCenter catch phrases?
I don't know yet. I'm in a production meeting. I'll call you back.
Hi Billy! A few years ago you got an AB in a spring training game. If Paul Maholm had hit you,would you have charged the mound?
No. When Jewish players get hit, they grab their necks and yell whiplash. I would have sued.
How will the Yankees rank up next season in AL East and do you think they will make the playoffs without A-Rod?
A-Rod was out and we still made the playoffs.
How fun was it working on the second Monster's Inc movie?
Deven, it's an awesome movie.
Your Wiki page is impressive. Rank these accomplishments ... having a line in Spinal Tap, holding a record on $20,000 pyramid for fastest to the top (26 seconds!), and getting an at-bat in a Yankees spring training game.
Reverse that order.
I loved your movie "61". What is your most vivid personal memory of Mickey Mantle?
The first time I saw him hit a home run in person in 1956.
What do you think Mitch Robbins would be up to these days?
He'd have orange stained fingers from Doritos and watching the World Series of Poker.
If you could wave a magic wand and give up your entertainment career for a successful career with the Yankees would you do it? What position would you have played?
Can you make a movie where the Cubs actually win the World Series?
Oh, science fiction?
Who is the real holder of the all-time home run record?
Which film are you looking forward to the most with the re-release of monsters inc & the release of parental guidance?
Parental Guidance. Trust me, it's a really good movie.
Thanks, have fun storming SportsCenter.
Another thing off the Bucket List.
