Bobby Cannavale and Chris Rock on 'The View'Bobby Cannavale's performance in 'The Motherf***er With the Hat' earned him a Tony Award for Best Actor. Tuesday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Cannavale and his co-star Chris Rock talked about the show's humble beginnings, and Rock's initial doubts that the show would have a significant run.

"Early on, people weren't showing up," said Rock. "They couldn't advertise the name and all that stuff, and we thought we were going to close in April." Cannavale said Rock had predicted on opening night that, "We're probably not going to be here tomorrow."

The show did find its footing, in part because of the cast-member's energy. How do they get up for a performance? "Crack," joked Rock. Cannavale gave more credit to the cast's chemistry and their pre-show routine.
