For all a hoopla over Chris Evans and his demure arise to superherodom, there’s Anthony Mackie, personification second fiddle when he should be a star. Mackie stars as Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and we wish this is only one purpose of many for him in remunerative franchises. Mackie was on Ellen yesterday, where he incited on a attract and told some rarely interesting stories. we was so tender by his unrestrained and how genuine he seemed, though of march I’ve desired him for years.
On Ellen, Mackie talked about how he found his home in New Orleans, an 1865 Victorian bed and breakfast that he pennyless into to see, and soon fell by a floor. Mackie does his possess refurbishing, and he also loves to use reclaimed rubbish in his home. we would dumpster dive with him any day.
On how he found his home
I was unresolved out with some friends and we gathering past this residence and it had been empty for dual years. One of my best friends from from center propagandize is a genuine estate representative now so we get in, doing a due diligence, and we go upstairs to a third building and I’m like ‘this is amazing,’ and we tumble from a third building all a approach to a basement. And we demeanour adult and I’m lonesome in termites, and we demeanour during my crony on a third building and we pronounced ‘this is my house.’ And I’ve gutted it and done it into my house.
Ellen jokes that he sued them
Technically we pennyless in so we couldn’t sue, though they gave me a unequivocally good price.
On dumpster diving
If we haven’t dumpster dived, we haven’t lived… we expostulate by, we see a dumpster. Circle back, make certain nobody’s looking. Go home, chill out, night comes, we go behind to that dumpster only demeanour around, see what we find. One man’s trash, another man’s renovation.
You can always make something out of trash. All of my floors, we got out of a dumpster. My whole bar, we built with timber that we got out of a dumpster from a broadway show. My bathtub in my small guest situation, we got it out of a dumpster. It’s a unequivocally good tub. [shows pictures]
On how he got his cylinder out of a dumpster
I went to home depot, got some guys [uses atmosphere quotes], got my lorry and was like ‘who wish to make $50?’ Took em to a dumpster, there’s a fasten on a dumpster where we can pitch it open… put it on a trailer, you’ve got to pierce fast.

Later, Mackie joked that he was in a best figure of his life for a film and that he attempted to get producers to let him wear spandex, though that they shot him down.
“I was operative out for 5 months to do this movie, and we looked in a counterpart and we looked like we did when we was 18. we tender myself. So we get on a phone with a Marvel exec and we was like ‘yo, we got it – spandex. In a comic book he wears spandex…’ No spandex, they pronounced no, they shot it down.” After that Ellen means Mackie with a spandex onesie that pronounced “watch Ellen” along with a heart helmet with a light on it for dumpster diving.
How overwhelming is Mackie? I’ve never been into dumpster diving and I’m not quite crafty, though he’s moving me to preservation emporium for some seat during least. I’ll determine that he should wear spandex in a subsequent film and I’ll really get behind that cause. I’d like to disciple for him to have most some-more shade time. we only might see Captain America 2 after all.
