Rosario Dawson on trains: "One of the most beautiful ways of traveling"

Coming up at 9 p.m. tonight, Piers Morgan welcomes actress, singer, and writer Rosario Dawson for a candid and engaging interview, touching upon everything from politics to the environment, and her enthusiasm for riding trains.

With the fifth annual "National Train Day" rapidly approaching, the event's official spokesperson details why she often lists the rails as her first choice for transportation:

"It is definitely one of the greener ways of traveling, but it's also just one of the most beautiful ways of traveling," says Dawson. "I love the conversations that I have when I'm on a train, I love the view of America that I get to have."

A veteran of such films as "Seven Pounds," "Rent," and "Unstoppable," the native of New York City says she still takes the subway to this day, admiring its authenticity:

"I'm a New Yorker, and that's the best thing about New Yorkers. You create New York moments. People like 'Yo what up Rosario,' I'm like, 'Yo wussup,' and then we move about our way."

Watch the clip as the 32-year-old speaks about two of her greatest passions, engaging young Latino voters, and "National Train Day."

    Piers, I'm turning your show off right now because I can't stand how you interrupt Jonah Goldberg. Let your guests speak!

      Piers really went at Jonah not like a whale but a great white. Some interviewer. You set out to trash him and not give him a chance to speak or make any point. This is scary how the liberal media cannot or fears to allow any opposition to their zealotry SPEAK.
      On the other hand they suckup to Hollywood types like they are in the presence of a deity. Rosario is a nice gal but, come on.
      Lost all my respect. Will not watch again.

    Mr Morgan should be in interrogator instead of interviewer. He doesn't even let the interviewee talk. I watch interviews to listen to interviewee not Mr Morgan. Please change or quit or I will change the channel.

    I agree. Its very hard to watch these interviews. Piers asks questions and answers them himself. He needs to allow his guest time to speak....... He also ask the same question over and over again

    Mr. Morgan you totally showed your true colors as a liberal democrats supported while trying to trash goldburgh on your show tonight. I've watched you for a year but turned off the show tonight. That was not an interview and you disgraced yourself. Probably why you or CNN did not include the blog post of the interview. Just pathetic. He did not have a chance to respond to your rapid fire gibberish. I will not watch you again.

    Well, well, well Mr. Morgan............... You took the thoughts right out of my head. Mr. Goldberg was all set to deliver the party line and you decimated him big time. He was actually blubbering like a smacked-down bully in the schoolyard.
    I suspect you'll not get him back on for a while.
    Thank-you for not allowing an unfettered platform for the ridiculous manufactured outrage being dished out by those on the rightwing of the political spectrum. Their hypocracy, while predictable, is none-the-less stomach turning.

    rosario dawson is about as intelligent and interesting as a bag of hammers. nobody cares about her opinion on anything and the reason she can take the subway in nyc is because she is basically a nobody. what's her signature film? dont strain yourself trying to think of one because she doesn't have one. upgrade the guest list please!!!!!

      I can relate to this atrlcie very much. I think I was abused by a woman when I was much younger and it definitely has had an affect on my life. I have difficulty creating and maintaining emotionally intimate relationships with women. I have never married and probably never will and it breaks my heart to know that, especially after spending Thanksgiving with family and extended family and getting lots of love from them.Mike

    Mr Morgan , why not just limit your guest to democrats ? And interview only people that agree with everything you say,

    Your agenda is transparent , Stick to interviewing hollywood celebs they love talking about themselves, and I am sure will agree with you on every subject ! you can continue to believe that this president and his cabinet is doing a swell job ! We have a 15 trillion dollar debt , over 8% unemployment , which is much higher ! People losing their jobs and fortunately for us , we have another administration that is destroying the country. Both rep & dem should start focusing on what " the people " need. Stop being selfish. Is there one great man or women out there that can put this country back on track without a personal agenda ? We don't need " one sided " views ! You don't have to agree , and you don't learn anything by speaking !

      jeff, u r 100 percent right. people, stop listening to celebrities who live out of touch anyway! remember, they have more resources than the average american and 99% of them are hypocrites who believe the rules do not apply to them...only everyone else...that includes Obama and his hippo-crite wife...she talks about people being obese while she downs everything in sight...gobble gobble...she needs to mind her own business and take her place at the back of the line"

        Lacy , some celebs really do good things... Where I was going with that, mr Morgan comes off very strong , and bully's the guests he has political differences with ! There's much criticism of fox news , but they at least put forth boh sides and don't suffocate their guests that oppose their position on any given subject like CNN does.

        There's a lot of issues that this country is facing, I have not heard anyone on either party discussing solutions and meeting somewhere in the middle. And simply setting aside their differences and doing what is in the best interest of the people. Give people an opportunity ! " give a man a fish he has dinner that nite, show him how to fish and he eats forever" democrates have to stop trying to control economy and step away , let the economy do the rest ! Politicians know very little about creating jobs, if they did I am sure they would be in business themselves. At the very least the people that run for any office should have a resume ! Btw keep it real, not nice to pass remarks about mrs Obama or anyone else.

    Ok, I understand piers format now.
    "The Piers Morgan Interroview " . Tonight Piers interrogates author Jonah Goldberg and allows little to no opportunity for Mr. Goldberg to express his view or respond to Piers self serving, arrogant rants.

    One of the worst interview jobs. CNN should be embarrassed!

    Well done Piers, we need to put these self serving right wing fenatics on notice that we will not let the US become a third world country. Unfortunatly we are well on our way to being just that..EDUCATION–HEALTH CARE–GUN CONTROL. We are getting out of control. I am an independant and will vote for a better US.
    I watch your show each night, Thank You.

      Russell, obama is NOT the one to put the U.S on the right track! HItler and the Oblabmas are too much alike. too much government and NO freedom....this SOB and his alien looking hag wife are all about taking the freedom away and putting government in control of EVERYTHING! I guess if you like unemployment, high gas prices and total control then Obama is for you..HOllywood idiots are a step above retarded and live in fantasy 24/7 so they should be ignored at all costs and probably be gagged while we are at it...idiots...who asked theses asses anyway?

    CNN, please get Pierce Morgan off your program. I think many people agree that his "interview skills" are non existent. He badgers any guest that doesn't agree with his liberal ideas. For the life of me I don't understand how such a otherwise fair station can keep this jerk on the air. I for one will be changing my channel for the first time In several years when this interrupting, overly opinionated so called impartial host comes on!!

    Piers – You were very rude to Jonah Goldberg! He could have done better. I would have said to you about Obama being cool, :"I would rather have a competant President than a cool President", but you hardly let him talk.
    Rosario did well, she is not the Obama sycophant you thought she was!

    Piers, Americans are too "illiteral" to even understand where you are coming from, let alone going to! Surely Mike Lyman, thank god that America has a President that is both cool, competent, and everything else that is required to be a 'real' president. Change him later this year and you will then only find out how fantastic a President Barack Obama really is! But about zero chances of that happening. President Obama is just "plain class" all round, he doesn't even need to prove it!!

    Hey Piers, I was impressed finally of the way you handled the interview before the Rosario one, you could see this guy moving in his seat trying to explain his stupid reasoning about Obama"s ad on capturing the number one killer of Americans in our day and time. You bet the Republicans would be doing the same thing if they had the guts to take out Osama Bin Ladin. McCain has used his military life to elected over and over in his life and hasn't solved Arizona's problems in all the years he has been in office. Hell yes they would be using this and this is what happens when they can't match it, they criticize. That is the Republican way.

    Yeah, Obama has done a great job! High unemployment, high gas prices, low real estate values, a disastrous health care bill, and you want 4 more years of this fraud? With no accountability! He already hinted at selling out Europe to Putin. It is completely amazing to me that anyone still is taken in by this guy. I guess it is white guilt, get over it, and grow up Guy.

    I absolutely LOVE trains and have my whole life. Perhaps it is in my blood, my great-grandfather being a brakeman, they say on the line from Albany to Erie. God Bless Rosario for lending her support, her beauty, her charm and her youthful vigor, for the Grand Old Lady of Transportation.

      Only 32% of current ACMA bscaklilt is child abuse material Actually this is completely incorrect 32% may be _'alleged'_ child abuse content but it is not confirmed (the ACMA list is all alleged, almost none of it has actually been classified by the Classifications Board). Many people have seen the URLs on the list and it seems like the actual' illegal content is closer to 5% than to 32%.

    Building a foundation?I am now about to start biluding a storage shed for my mother and I would like to know what kind of foundation I should use. It is going to be a 10X15 foot shed, but I don't really know where to begin. Should I use a concrete slab or a cinder block foundation? How do you anchor the biluding to either one of these? Which is cheaper? If I do cinder block do I just build the wooden floor on top of the blocks and if yes, why does the wood not rot out or bow downwards in the middle?Thanks

    anonymous hope you realize that in terms of the Australian child poarhgnrpoy laws it doesn't matter if the images are of actual children or not, only if they depict children. There was a case reported in the paper a few days ago of someone who was convicted of child poarhgnrpoy who possessed only cartoon/animation type images.
