Penn & Teller were featured in a very nice segment on CBS Sunday Morning on January 25, 2015.
Among the many topics covered:
Teller on why his character is silent:
"Not speaking is just about the most intimate thing that you can do," Teller said.
"Intimate in terms of ..." said Cowan.
"See? You felt like you had to speak. If we just stop, and look at each other, Oh gosh, that gets intimate fast, and that's what I feel when I'm on stage."
Penn on their relationship:
"Teller and I never got along," Penn said. "We never had a cuddly friendship. It was a very cold, calculated relationship where we thought we do better stuff together than we do separately."
"So it was almost a matter of necessity?" Cowan asked.
"Well, it turns out that respect lasts longer than affection."
