[ laughter ] you know i was like, "mike, come on, man. that's like running with your shirt off. like, come on, man." he was like, "dude, you don't know i know."

12:01 am
to walk is, like, a serious, you know, cop drama. there is real killings and things like that >> jimmy: yeah >> but then there's really broad comedy and walking that line takes a really deft hand. and martin is such a unique talent in the ability to be able to get a big gut laugh. but not break the reality of the scene that's happening so it's -- i love working with him. >> jimmy: is it tricky to do because you're funny as well so it's two comedians. like, who gets the funny line? >> yeah, you know what in the first "bad boys," all right, because we both had our tv show. so we're both comedians. we're coming to it and, you know, michael bay had a different vision for the characters he was like, "no, no, no you're funny on tv but martin's is going to be funny in the movie. "i'm funny." [ laughter ] you know, so, it was really hard those first couple of weeks.

12:02 am
dude." >> "take your shirt off. yeah, you know but it was definitely the right idea and i learned a lot about balancing a scene. where, you know, one guy plays the straight guy, one guy plays the funny guy. and we were able to go back and forth in a way that i feel is beautiful. >> jimmy: you and martin weren't the original choices for "bad boys," right? >> no, that's true all right, so dana carvey and jon lovitz [ laughter ] that's really -- like, dana carvey and jon lovitz originally had the script. and they were the original bad boys >> jimmy: wow. >> and then jon lovitz's schedule changed so he had to push four months. and dana carvey couldn't wait the four months. so then dana fell out. so then jerry bruckheimer and don simpson had the script and they, you know, they had a a green light to make the movie. but -- and then they went and martin was first they had martin. and martin actually picked me for "bad boys. >> jimmy: is that right? >> yeah. >> jimmy: props to martin lawrence. >> yeah. >> jimmy: guys, more with will smith when we come on back [ cheers and applause we're talking with will. come on back [ cheers and applause ♪ ♪
