"Treme" actor Rob Brown talks class action lawsuit against Macy's: This "can't happen again"

“Treme” actor Rob Brown filed lawsuits against Macy’s and the NYPD for racial profiling him while shopping for a watch. Brown appeared on “New Day” with his lawyers to talk about his experience and other recent allegations against department stores, which has even led to public criticism of Jay-Z’ partnership with Barneys.

Brown said, “Well, at the time I realized this event can't happen again to anyone and I was just thinking from a personal level. Then Trayvon Christian came out, learned about other instances and now that I'm here, I want, hopefully, I'm hoping that other people will come out and talk about their stories. And hopefully employees come out and talk about possible goings on in the department stores that they're privy to that no one knows about. I think that's the main focus right now is, like you said, put the spotlight on it and to, hopefully, get more people to talk about it.”

New Day debate: Pandora's Promise - Is nuclear power the answer to climate change?

CNN New Day Anchor Kate Bolduan interviewed Academy Award-nominated director Robert Stone about his documentary film Pandora's Promise, which profiles several high profile environmentalists who now strongly support nuclear power as a part of the global solution to reduce fossil fuels emissions.  Stone, who supports the replacement of fossil fuel powered energy plants with nuclear energy, debated Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune, who says that the cost and safety concerns of nuclear energy are outweighed by the relative benefits of renewable energy sources like solar and wind power.

Pandora's Promise debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2013 and is set to debut for the first time ever on television on Thursday, Nov. 7.  The CNN Films broadcast will premiere tomorrow from 9:00pm to 11:00pm and 11:00pm to 1:00am on CNN.  All times Eastern.  During the film, users can join the debate with the filmmaker and environmentalists from all perspectives on this topic online tomorrow by using #PandorasPromise or by tweeting to @CNNFilms on Twitter.

Neil Patrick Harris talks magic show, final season of "How I Met Your Mother," + "Sleep No More"

Neil Patrick Harris visited CNN’s morning show “New Day” and opened up about directing magic show “Nothing to Hide,” wrapping up the ninth and final season of “How I Met Your Mother,” and guest starring in PunchDrunk’s “Sleep No More.”

“Two amazing card magicians named Derek DelGaudio and Helder Guimarães performed at the Magic Castle, and I’m the President of the Academy of Magical Arts there at the Magic Castle,” Harris said about ‘Nothing to Hide.’ “I saw them do this show together; it was wildly successful, but only in that little, small world. So I had them do it at the Geffen Playhouse in L.A. It broke records there. It extended four times. And so now we’re bringing it to New York. So, it’s guys doing card magic like you’ve never seen.”

On his interest in magic, Harris said, “I’m a big fan of live, variety arts. I’ve always loved it. I love the Cirque du Soleils. I love the David Copperfield. I love going out and seeing things. That’s why I’m a proponent of theater and the Tonys and all of that. Because I think there is a better, more complete experience when you’re immersed in something, as opposed to just sitting and watching it.”

“New Day” airs weekday mornings from 6-9 a.m. ET on CNN.

The real Siri revealed: People want me to make a "naughty" app

Siri, Apple’s voice-activated virtual “assistant,” made its debut on October 4, 2011 with the iPhone 4S. The real person behind the voice revealed herself to’s Jessica Ravitz, and now to the world. Although Apple won’t confirm it’s her, an audio-forensics expert with 30 years of experience confirms that it is “100%” Susan Bennett, a voiceover artist from suburban Atlanta. Bennett told her story to “New Day” explaining how she became the voice of Siri and why she finally decided to come out.

When CNN News Anchor Michaela Pereira asked Bennett questions such as “why is one foot longer than the other” and “what is the driving time from New York to LA,” she replied a very common Siri response, “I’m sorry Michaela, I cannot answer those questions.”

“That’s something that people would like me to do is make a little, naughty Siri app,” Bennett said. Red Chair interview:

Justin Timberlake: "I had imaginary friends;" Memphis has pride, but "defeatist attitude"

Actor and singer Justin Timberlake sat down with CNN’s Nischelle Turner to discuss new projects, including movie “Runner Runner” with Ben Affleck out October 4th and album “The 20/20 Experience, 2 of 2” out September 27th. Timberlake opened up about being “a well calculated risk-taker,” his growing up as an only child in a small town, his thoughts on Memphis and *NSYNC’s reunion at the MTV Video Music Awards and future touring.

On Memphis, Timberlake said, “I grew up in a small town, and I definitely felt like I was an individual, always.” He continued, “But the way that you’re brought up in small-ville Mid-South, USA, you’re taught more about how you’re similar to your neighbor.”

“There’s a lot of pride, but there’s also – but don’t take this the wrong way, Memphis – but there’s also a little bit of a defeatist attitude like you feel like you’re not good enough for the big lights, per se.” He added, “The world is becoming more connected, now.”

On *NSYNC’s reunion, Timberlake said, “I just thought it was a nice tribute. We’re not going to go on tour. I mean, I’m glad people were excited about it, but funny enough, it was more for us. It was more for us to enjoy that moment because I felt like really in my heart, shared that award with those guys.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus talks Emmy award-winning role on "Veep," hit movie "Enough Said"

On “New Day,” actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus talks about her hit show “Veep” on HBO and playing opposite the late James Gandolfini in independent movie “Enough Said.” Last night, she won her fourth Emmy for Best Comedy Lead Actress.

On relating to her role in “Enough Said,” Louis-Dreyfus said, “Well, I have two children, and my oldest son went off to college a couple of years ago. And, that was horrible. I mean it was great for him, and I’m thrilled and that’s exactly what’s supposed to happen.” She continued, “I was very heart broken and I had a lot of anxiety leading up to it…. I didn’t do anything as bad as Eva does in this film…. And as a parent, I really have to say even though you know intellectually that you’re raising children to one day leave you, you don’t really know that emotionally, and then when it happens, it’s like getting hit by a Mack truck, well, at least it was for me. So I’m looking forward to the next one leaving, too.”
