To mark the 45th anniversary of the genre-defining classic 2001: A Space Odyssey, Alec Baldwin sat down with the film’s stars, Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood, for his new MSNBC talk show, Up Late With Alec Baldwin.

In the clip below from Friday’s episode, Dullea talks about how director Stanley Kubrick couldn’t decide on the voice of HAL, the computer in control of the spaceship, and the solution he came up with while filming.

Up Late With Alec Baldwin airs Fridays at 10 p.m. on MSNBC.
