Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt discusses intense scenes in "The Trial of the Chicago 7," Friday on "The Talk." Eve asks, "Now, most of the movie takes place in the courtroom, and those scenes are intense. What were they like to film?" Gordon-Levitt shares, "It's intense to film, you're absolutely right. Because, normally in a movie, you do your scenes, and you do scenes with people that are in it. Then if you're not in a scene, you're not there. But when you do a courtroom scene, everyone's there all the time, even if you're not in the scene. And so, when I was getting up and doing my prosecutor thing, you know, there's Eddie Redmayne with Oscars under his belt, like watching me, and I'm like oh wow. There's Frank Langella; there's Mark Rylance; there's Sasha Baron Cohen; there's Yahya Abdul-Matreen. And there's all these wonderful actors there. And even if they're not participating in the scene with me, they're there watching." He adds, "We're all kind of watching each other do our thing. It becomes this like, actors' Olympics. It was really, like actually, kind of inspiring."
