tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC January 7, 2014 11:35pm-12:36am PST
>> welcome. thank you for braving the forces of nature to be here tonight. it's hard to believe, but it was 73 degrees here in hollywood today. i almost started to feel guilty driving into work in shorts with my moon roof open this morning. but then i remembered, you know, a lot of you may have the cold to deal with, but here in california, we have gary busi to worry about and that's all year long. it doesn't go away in the spring. i think they make new weather up. three days ago, i never heard of after polar vortex. now i think gwyneth paltrow is naming her kid polar vortex. roughly half the united states is experiencing sub zero temperatures right now. it was colder in chicago, in minneapolis and detroit today than it was at the south pole. for real. basically the plot to the disney movie frozen has come true. we need an adorable singing snowman to help us break the curse.
guillermo, you could be our olaf. >> yeah, sure. >> jimmy: your singing is terrible. dennis rodman took six former nba players and four other player on a trip to north korea to play an exhibition game against a local team in celebration of kim jong-un's 31st birthday tomorrow. i guess after years of playing alongside michael jordan, rod plan is very comfortable with totalitarian dictators. somehow they've become close friends. dennis rodman is like the uncle that kim jong-un had never had killed. but rodman is getting a lot of criticism for palling around with the enemy of the united states. he says it's a great idea for the world. and this is a guy who started the movie "double-team" with jean claude van damme so he knows when there's a great idea for the world. this morning, dennis and the players he brought sat down were a satellite interview.
they're in north korea. it did not go smoothly. >> you've got ten guys here, ten guys here that left their families, left their families to help this country as a sports venturer. ten guy, all these guys here. does anyone understand that? >> we do. and we appreciate that and we wish them well. >> no, no, i don't give a [ bleep ] i don't give a rat's ass what you think. i'm telling you, look at these guys here. look at them! >> dennis, don't use them as an excuse for the behavior that you're butt putting on yourself. >> they came here! they came here! >> jimmy: they came here. now they want to leave here. where did that voice come from. one day in north korea, mr. mumbles turned into mr.
mystical. relations didn't improve from there. >> don't use these guys as a shield for you, dennis. >> listen, listen, listen -- >> no shield. let me do this. i want to tell you one thing, people around the world, around the world, i'm going to do one thing. you guy behind the mike right now, we are the guys here doing one thing. we have to go back to america and take the abuse. do you have to take the abuse? well, we're going to take the abuse. let me know, guess what i do? one day, one day this is going to open. >> jimmy: he makes some interesting points. i don't know what they are.
let's go to the chalkboard and try to figure out what he was saying there. here we go. this is a full quote. here's what he said. ain't no shield. i got it, got it, let me do this. really, really. which is a triple-double, just saying. i'm going to tell you one thing, people around the world, around the world, i'm going to do one thing. you a guy behind the mike right now. that's true. we are the guys here do one thing. we have to go back to america and take the abuse. no, you really don't, actually. you could stay over there. we would be perfectly fine with it. do you have to take the abuse? what we're going to take? do you, sir? let me know. are you going to take the abuse we're going to get it. but guess what, though? he knows how to build suspense.
one day, one day, this door is going to open. and a new r. kelly song is born. he's doing it. he's speaking from the heart. unfortunately his heart is an idiot. will you come hold my chalk guillermo? >> yes. >> jimmy: thanks very much. thanks. go on the oh side of the chalkboard and draw something and then we'll turn it around and see what it is. >> all right. >> jimmy: take your time. >> we're very high tech. the annual consumer electronic show is going on in las vegas this week. this is where companies show off their fancy new gadgets. and one of them comes from a company called inovega which is a terrible name for a company.
but they have an interesting new product. they design contact lenses that project digital images directly on to your eyeballs. they see it's the most innova innovative piece of technology we'll ever lose on our carpet. how about that? eyeball tv. it would be great for watching football in church. but does it mean before you go to sleep every night you have to remember to plug in your eyeballs? also, the director michael bay had a terribly embarrassing moment. apparently he's endorsing a new curved hdtv. he was supposed to talk about it. it was a scripted thing with the vice president of samsung. unfortunately, and perhaps ironically, he had trouble with the teleprompter. >> i create visual worlds beyond everyday normal life experiences and hollywood is a place that creates a viewer escape.
what i tried to do as a director, i try to -- ahhh, the type is all off, sorry. i'll wing this. >> tell us what you think. >> yeah, we'll wing it right now. i try to take people on an emotional ride. and -- >> the curve? how do you think it's going to impact how viewers experience your movies? >> excuse me, i'm sorry. i'm sorry. >> okay. ladies and gentlemen, let's thank michael bay for joining us. >> jimmy: and he's gone. to be fair, michael bay had never actually read a script before that. so he got confused when the teleprompter didn't turn into a robot. if michael bay doesn't stare directly into a computer simulated explosion every ten seconds, he shuts down and.
this's why he shouldn't agree to do anything ever. anyone from colorado here? the marijuana is now for sale legally in the state of colorado for recreational use. colorado is now numt ber one vacation spot for people who want to forget they went on vacation. new marijuana stores opened their doors at 8:00 a.m. on january 1, which is kind of funny. getting up early to buy pot. but it worked. according to the national cannabis association, around $1 million worth of marijuana was sold on wednesday. although the stat is coming from the cannabis association, so someone should check the math. it's created a booming pot tourism business. there are companies that will drive you around on a bus and take you on a pot sightseeing tour. i would like to go on one dressed as a dea agent just to freak everyone out. i saw a commercial for one of these tours online. it actually reminds me of kind of like those napa wine tours. >> come onboard mountain air
colorado tours to see all of colorado's most scenic destinations. rockty mountain national park, mile high stadium, a cloud that looks like a chicken. [ laughing ] and omlet. hi, omlet. >> hi. >> mountain air colorado tours. really see colorado like really see it. hey, bro, what's up? [ applause ] >> how are you doing over there? >> doing great. >> go ahead and reveal your masterpie masterpiece. which you took just a small amount of time you were allotted. [ applause ] >> jimmy: nice. that is the depiction of the prison dennis rodman is going to be liing in. thank you, that is beautiful. will you sign that so i can take
it home? thank you very much. when we come back, my cousin sal is going to hit some people out on the beach today with snowballs. just to give them a taste of what's going on in the midwest. amy adams, margot robbie and music from xolie morra and the strange kind. don't go away. ♪ we're gonna be late. ♪ ♪ ♪ oh are we early?

>> jimmy: how are you? >> i'm really good, thank you. >> jimmy: i saw "the wolf of wall street" and you did an unbelievably great job in it. but i had no idea -- you did such a good job i had no idea you were from australia. >> i'm really happy to hear that, yeah. >> jimmy: and i'm from very close to where your character is from. >> near bay bridge? >> jimmy: very close. yeah. although it's pretty much the same in brooklyn. but you really had it down. now, do you audition with that accent? or did you learn it once you -- >> i did the audition with the accent, yeah. i actually sat down with my acting coach to go through it before my audition. she said you know you're meant to be doing a brooklyn accent. i was like you what does a brooklyn accent sound like. she said okay, pretend you have acrylic nails on they've just been painted so they'll still
wet. so how do i do the accent? she was like okay, just do it. i was like okay. so i put my hands out like that and started doing the scene. and i was like okay, well, all of a sudden, you know, i'm getting my hair out of my face like this and i was talking to her. and i wasn't talking to you. i was talking to her. and this attitude came out of nowhere. [ applause ] >> jimmy: have good. very good. that's how i got the brooklyn accent. just pretend you have acrylic nails. >> jimmy: so the key to great acting is pretending you had a man cure. >> kt ai acting 101. >> jimmy: there's nothing worse than when someone does a bad brooklyn accent. >> it would be infuriating. almost as infuriating as the sound of an actual brooklyn accent. i love it. it's my favorite accent. >> jimmy: sure, sure, but everybody else hates it. i'll pass that along to my family.
where are you from in australia? >> i'm from the gold coast. it's a coastal town in queensland, but my family is from a little country town called dolby. three hours inland. it's very small. >> jimmy: how small? >> very small country town. it's -- the big news when i go back everyone is like what's been happening to you? oh, i did a movie. what's been happening out you? we're getting a big w. it's the equivalent of target. for two years, all the town talked about was getting the big w. and then big w came and everybody would talk about how good big w was. so for a really long time, that's been what's happening out there. but everyone is so sweet there. whenever i get in the papers or anything everyone passes it around at bridge club and puts it on the fridge. >> jimmy: i can't even imagine what they're going to think. has the movie opened there yet? >> no, no. i don't know if dolby is going
to approve of this movie. i'm going to follow it up with another one that's a little more, you know, pleasing to a small country town. >> jimmy: the damage has been done already. >> thank you, jimmy. >> jimmy: you are very naked in the movie. for a lot of the film. >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: did they tell you about that going in? or is that a surprise? >> yeah. so that was a small point of contention with my family. to tell the truth, i -- to tell the truth. honestly enough, i just flat-out lied to my family for a really long time. i said i don't care what you hear. there is no nudity. ignore what anyone is saying. i thought well, the movie is going to come out and there's going to be nudity. okay, the lie evolved to well, actually, it's a body double and they just cgi'd my head. and my family don't have anything to do with the film industry. they totally bought it. they can do that?
you wouldn't believe what they do in hollywood. so then eventually i came clean. and i said okay, i'm doing nudity, but you should read the book first. and if you still want to see the movie after reading the book -- >> jimmy: and will you be there to be with them while they're witnessing this? >> i'm hoping i'm going to be home when it comes out. and then i'm just going to fly the coop so i can miss the aftermath. >> jimmy: the good news is everything after this is gravy. everything after this is a disney film. >> that's true. that's true. >> jimmy: you will have no problems from here on out. so how do you go from -- i know you're a television star in australia. what show were you on? >> it's a show called "neighbors." it's like boot camp for australian actors. everyone goes through it. and everyone does it. >> jimmy: yeah, a number of actors were on that show. so i guess then it's a -- is that kind of the pipeline through which you go -- >> it's almost like a prerequisite to moving to l.a.
