Transcript for Behind the scenes on 'The Terminal List'
>>> I'M PUTTING YOU IN FOR THE NAVY CROSS. >> I DON'T DESERVE THAT. >> YEAH YOU DO. RANGERS SAID THEY COULDN'T DRAG YOU OUT OF THOSE TUNNELS. YOU INSISTED ON HELPING YOUR MEN. AND IT SHOWS THE SEALS WHO ARE HEADED BACK OUT INTO THE THEATRE THAT WE STAND BY OUR OPERATORS NO MATTER WHAT. >> SEALS ARE DEPLOYING? I'M TOLD OPERATIONS WERE ON HOLD WHILE WE CHASE THE INTELLIGENCE FAILURE. >> WE FOUND YOUR MAN, HE HAD A HOLE IN HIS HEAD. >>> WELCOME BACK TO "GMA3." THAT'S THE CLIP FROM ONE OF THE MOST BUZZED ABOUT SHOWS OF THE SUMMER, "THE TERMINAL LIST" IT FOLLOWS A MILITARY HERO STRUGGLING TO COPE WITH CONTROVERSY AND TRUTH. >> WE HAVE ONE OF THE STARS TO TELL US ALL ABOUT IT, JEANNE TRIPPLEHORN. CONGRATULATIONS THIS LOOKS INCREDIBLE. I LOVE YOUR ROLE. YOU PLAY THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE. AS WE ALL KNOW THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A FEMALE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE IN THE COUNTRY. WHAT WAS IT LIKE FOR YOU STEPPING INTO THAT ROLE? >> WELL, IT WAS A VERY SERIOUS HONOR, I TOOK IT SERIOUSLY. WE NEED MORE WOMEN IN THOSE POLITICAL POSITIONS. LORRAINE HARTLEY WAS AN INCREDIBLE CHARACTER, ROLE, SHE COMES FROM A MILITARY FAMILY. I LOVE DOING THE RESEARCH AND LEARNING MORE ABOUT NAVY S.E.A.L. S AND THE MILITARY. SHE TAKES AN INTEREST BECAUSE OF HER MILITARY BACKGROUND. SHE TAKES A REAL INTEREST IN SOLDIERS COMING BACK FROM WAR AND THEIR MENTAL STATE. AND CHRIS PRATT, WHO PLAYS JAMES REESE, COMES BACK FROM A TERRIBLY BOTCHED MISSION AND HAS ISSUES WITH REALITY, WHAT'S REAL AND WHAT ISN'T. AND I THINK SECRETARY OF DEFENSE LORRAINE HARTLEY TAKES AN INTEREST IN HIM AND REALLY CARES ABOUT HIM. >> TJ MENTIONED THAT THIS REALLY COMES FROM THE NOVEL BY JACK CARR. HOW WAS IT WORKING WITH THE AUTHOR? HOW MUCH LIBERTY DID YOU TAKE? IT'S NOT A DIRECT TRANSLATION. YOU DID REALLY MAKE IT YOUR OWN. >> YOU HAVE TO. WE ALL HAVE OUR FAVORITE BOOKS AND WHEN THEY COME TO THE SCREEN, WE HAVE TO I DIDN'T SEE IT THAT WAY. WE ALL HAVE WHAT'S GOING ON IN OUR HEAD. WHAT WE SEE AND WHAT WE EXPERIENCE IS REALLY DIFFERENT BY THE TIME IT GETS TO THE SCREEN. SO I'VE DONE THIS A COUPLE OF TIMES, HAD A COUPLE OF ROLES THAT WERE FROM BEST SELLING BOOKS. AND THERE'S ALWAYS A DEGREE OF DISAPPOINTMENT. SO, YOU KNOW, IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, JACK CARR, WE HAD HIS BLESSING. JACK CARR WROTE "THE TERMINAL LIST" AND HE WAS SO EXCITED, AND HE WAS JUST THIS SUPER POSITIVE PRESENCE. AND HE WAS REALLY INVOLVED IN THE PRODUCTION. >> DO YOU FEEL THE BUZZ AS WELL? WE SAY THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST BUZZED ABOUT SHOWS OF THE SUMMER. DOES IT FEEL THAT WAY TO YOU THAT EVERYONE IS CHOMPING AT THE BIT TO SEE THIS? >> YEAH. I'M FEELING IT. THERE'S A HUGE FAN BASE. THERE'S A LOT OF HEAT. AND THIS BOOK HAS RABID, FIERCE FANS. SO I HOPE THEY UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS A -- THERE IS A TRANSITION FROM BOOK TO SCREEN AND SO JUST GIVE IT A LITTLE GRACE THAT WAY. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, TALK TO JACK. I DO -- I DO THINK -- I DO THINK FANS OF THE BOOK WILL BE PLEASED. YOU HAVE TO KIND OF LET IT GO AND JUST GO WITH IT. >> JEANNE, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STOPPING BY. WE APPRECIATE IT. YOU CAN CATCH "THE TERMINAL LIST" ON AMAZON
