Anderson Cooper is greedy. As if the first sit-down with Angelina Jolie after the actress wasn't enough, now the talk show host has nabbed another celebrity guest.
As Comedy Central begins to air Chappelle's Show - you know, without Dave Chappelle - Cooper interviewed the zany, rich comedian. The Gossip has recorded the transcript below ...
COOPER: And I'm very pleased that Dave Chappelle joins me live. Dave thanks for being with us.
CHAPPELLE: Man thank you, Anderson. Thank you very much. That was a tearjerker.
COOPER: So what do you think about these so-called lost episodes?
CHAPPELLE: It's funny, I have mixed feelings. I mean, 90 percent of me feels like I wish they wouldn't do this. There's the 10 percent comedian that's like, I hope the sketches do good.
COOPER: Really, so part of you kind of wants to make sure they do alright?
CHAPPELLE: Yeah, oh, yeah. But -- I think the thing that upsets me about it the most is that I was so public about not liking a particular sketch and from my understanding that's included in the three episodes.
COOPER: You talked on "Oprah" about some of the sketches that you were working on and that you felt that they were almost inappropriate or -- I don't want to put words in your mouth. But irresponsible --
CHAPPELLE: Socially irresponsible. In that case, I was speaking about one in particular, in where I appeared in blackface. It's funny but its like -- someone on the set while we were filming it laughed in such a way that I was like, I can't subject my audience to that.
COOPER: There was a white man on the set, one of the people working on the show who laughs --
CHAPPELLE: The way he laughed, made me feel like this guy's laughing for the wrong reasons. And I dared him to laugh Anderson, so that's my --
COOPER: Because people, I mean you want --
CHAPPELLE: It stirred something up in me emotionally that I was like, I don't want to subject anyone else to. And that will be included in the so-called lost episodes. That's one of the reasons why I said it's a bully move.
