tv   Jimmy Kimmel Live  ABC  January 21, 2014 11:35pm-12:38am PST

11:35 pm
>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight, greg kinnear kenneth branagh and music from young the giant with cleto and the cletones! and now, one more thing, here's jimmy kimmel! [ applause ] >> jimmy: thanks for watching. thank for putting it all on the
11:36 pm
line. appreciate it. i really do. we have a lot including the triumphant return of toronto mayor rob ford. but first, a happy national hugging day. today, in case you didn't know was national hugging day. it was established today by a pickpocket. actually, he was a pastor from michigan who thought we needed a day between christmas and valentine's day to hug. i don't know why. maybe they're forming a letter "h" with their body. here's another one. and apparently this is how you hug a young girl without being arrested? i don't know. they're either hugging a pillow or a giant burrito. if you want to participate, you still about 23 minutes to awkwardly press your body
11:37 pm
against a stranger. to me, the big question is what kind of a dope puts hugging day right in the middle of the cold and flu season. it is very cold again in a lot of the country. there was a brief thaw, but the freezing weather is back. much of the midwest is experiencing single digit temperatures tonight. you know, they say the trick to staying warm is making sure all your thermometers are set to fahrenheit. because it's just much warmer than celsius. it's so cold in some parts of the country, people actually have to wear uggs out of necessity. in the northeast, winter storm janice has been a tough one for the weather channel. but not for the usual reasons. some of our eagle-eyed viewers alerted me to this. janus is is written j-a-n-u-s. al roeker needs to be careful with where he stands.
11:38 pm
you don't want to get caught in the eye of winter storm anus. you really don't. janus is -- there are blizzard-like conditions. they needed to close government offices in washington, d.c. today. while jim cantore was there, he was good enough to provide us with our unintentional joke of the day. >> i'm ready for a big dump here at the hill. >> so far this storm has proven to be a very low brow affair. i almost hate to mention it. it was 75 degrees here in l.a. today. that has its own struggle. it's not quite beach weather. it's not quite sweater weather. dwoept know what to wear. but we soldier on resiliently. you don't hear us. the weather has been very weird here. it has not rained in l.a. since
11:39 pm
june of 2008. and now there's a drought. because of the drought, governor jerry brown declared california a state of emergency, which was a sobering call to action that will in no way change the way anyone does anything at all. we'll still be taking long, obnoxious showers. but the state water reserve is dangerously low. there's no sign of rain on the horizon. they don't think it's going to rain for another couple of months, which is why now more than ever it's imperative that our nation's rappers make it rain. we need them to do it. i did cry a little bit last night watching "the bachelor." so hopefully that helped. while we're on the subject of natural disaster, have you seen the latest episode of toronto mayor rob ford? rob ford has been quiet for a couple of months. he claims he's been exercising. he says he hasn't been drinking.
11:40 pm
he even hasn't done crack, he says. that's big for him. because he loves crack. unfortunately, the streak of good behavior appears to have ended last night. today video surfaced of the mayor in a fast food restaurant called state queen. i'm not exactly sure what's happening here at state queen, but it would appear that mayor ford speaks jamaican, too. >> [ inaudible ] me you know what i mean, he's hiding here, i'm hiding here [ bleep ] [ inaudible ]. >> jimmy: just when you thought he couldn't possibly pull another nugget out of his bag of
11:41 pm
crazy, he gets drunk and speaks jamaican in a state queen. when you're the best, that's what you do. earlier today, mayor ford's brother, this poor guy, doug ford is the most loyal brother in the video. he says that can't be from last night. he's given up drinking 100% and he's much thinner than that. then his brother comes out and says this. >> were you drinking last night? >> yes, i was. >> you were drinking last night? >> a little bit, yeah. >> jimmy: that's a little bit? and then another video from the state queen popped up last night. he appeared to be dining with an alleged drug dinner. so he's back, folks, for an all-new season of super mayor. thanks, canada. this almost makes up for justin bieber.
11:42 pm
this is worth mentioning. this has been coming for a long time. the ethnic ratio of the state of california is about to change for good. it's projected in march of this year, latinos will surpass nonhispanic whites to become california's largest ethnic group. latinos will make up 39% of the population with whites dropping to 38.8%, which will be especially intriguing around here, because according to the law, once the latino population hits number one, guillermo becomes host of the show and i become his side kick. do you know about this, guillermo? >> guillermo: no, jimmy. >> jimmy: what was that? >> guillermo: no, i didn't know about it, jimmy. >> jimmy: why are you talking like a robot now? you see, they're multiplying as we speak. president obama said some interesting things in an interview with the new yorker that was published on sunday. they asked about the risk
11:43 pm
associated with contact sports. obama said he wouldn't let his son play profession nap football. and then in the same interview, he said marijuana is not as dangerous as alcohol. parentally he's been smoking marijuana because he thinks he has a son. the president said -- [ applause ] >> jimmy: while he doesn't encourage marijuana use, he thinks pot is less dangerous than alcohol because of impact on the individual consumer. sounds like he just wants to get michelle stoned so they can eat chips in the white house. he said he discouraged his daughters to smoke pot by telling them it's a waste of time. that's the whole point, right? wouldn't it be weird if 20 years from now, football was illegal and smoking pot was allowed? mom, we're going to be park to smoke some weed. okay, but don't let me catch you playing football. this is a good one from the crime file. in paris, texas, last week, two
11:44 pm
women were robbed at knife point. fortunately they got away unharmed. they called police who then released this composite sketch of the criminal. police are on the lookout for a new police sketch artist. i can't believe two women were robbed at knife point by a cabbage patch doll. but as bad as this drawing is, i have to say it does remind me of someone. can we add a moustache to that? that's right. guillermo, it looks a little bit like you. what do you have to say for yourself? >> no, it was not me. it was him. >> no, it was him. >> no, it was him. >> jimmy: i guess this is what it's like to do payote. thank you, guys. >> you're welcome. >> jimmy: amazon has patented a new technology that's pretty incredible. it's called anticipatory package
11:45 pm
shipping. which means amazon can ship products you mite buy before you even order them. they use previous orders and product searches and wishlists to figure out what people might want. in other words, the future is here and it's bringing you a nine pack of women's socks. it really is crazy. a company knowing what you need before you even do. but what they're advertising is true, it could revolutionize the way we shop. >> i didn't order anything. >> oh, we know. tissues? >> oh, your girlfriend is about to break up with you. you're going to need them. >> okay. and this? >> it's tequila. you're going to start drinking a lot. >> what is this? >> snow globe. you're going to start collecting them for some reason.
11:46 pm
it's weird. >> i don't want any of this stuff. >> you will. >> diapers? >> oh, she's pregnant. it e it's yours. >> how do you know? >> paternity test. sign here. >> amazon, we know what you need. so shut up and take it. >> not bad advice. we're going to take a break. when we come back, we've got an internet superstar in the building. have you seen the video of the adorable 2-year-old girl who sings the miley cyrus song "wrecking ball" with a lot of passion. we' invited her here tonight to see if she is replicate that performance. it's called "can they do it love. plus greg kinnear, kenneth branagh and music from young the giant, too. so come join us.

12:04 am
i have two brothers. so we were kind of three of a kind very close. and the idea of having three girls was always great. if i had a boy, that would have been cool, too. but very happy with what i got. you don't try to turn this into buyer's remorse. >> jimmy: i'm not trying. but i have a daughter, and then i had a son. i was like oh, this is good. i was delighted to have my daughter. then i could buy all the toys i wanted to buy. all the sports, all that kind of stuff. not that you can't do that with your daughters. >> it's not a bad thing to point out. this is the sad time of year where i'm sitting here during the nfl playoff season, just like this. alone. >> jimmy: no one watches with you. >> quiet. it's very, very sad. >> jimmy: is it bad or good? >> no, it's sad. i would like to have someone -- i would go out to the backyard. it's something in the dna with girls. we run a few offensive pass drills, i try to get them enthusiastic about football.
12:05 am
>> jimmy: i know how you could do it, by the way. >> you have an idea for me? >> jimmy: i have a great idea for you. >> i'm all ears. >> jimmy: if your kid is not interested, gambling. like tell your daughter at the super bowl, one of them is going to get no allowance if, like, the broncos win. but if the seahawks win, she'll get her allowance and her sister's allowance. guarantee you, they're glued to the television the whole time. you won't hear a peep out of them. >> that's a good idea. >> jimmy: it may cause problems down the line, but you know -- >> with the money they'll have made, they'll be able to pay for the therapy. yeah. i mean, there is that little moment in the end zone where the player will do that little shuck and move dance or something. and they'll be like -- they're into the little dance. >> jimmy: they like the dancing. >> that's the only thing i got going for them. >> jimmy: wait till tom brady
12:06 am
25ik takes his helmet off for the first time and they get a load of that handsome devil. there's an article of you in "the new york times" magazine. one of the lines, i don't know if you saw this, describing you when you were a tv talk show host. quick witted and affable, handsome in a frat boy kind of way. breezy enough to be safe, clearly positioned to be a talk show host for life. jimmy kimmel with better hair. i don't know why i had to be insulted in that. >> why the hell did they drag you into it. >> jimmy: you do have nice hair, now that i look at you, though. run your hand through it. are you scared of it? >> oh, that's nice. >> jimmy: you'll never get your head back. >> you have nice body. nice curve. >> jimmy: thank you. you should have told that to the
12:07 am
writer. >> who basically called you greg kinnear with bad hair. >> jimmy: i guess it could be worse. do you ever wake up in the morning and say i wish i could interview a housewife of orange county today? you know? what was your first job in television? >> my first job in television was -- there was a cable channel. before e! was e! it was called movie time. it was a little fledgling channel run out of a former porn studio. not a good story. it was a very, very kind of rough and tumble part of hollywood here. we would go in and the idea was just to fill time. so we had a few interviews. you know, you get the epk kit. you can run trailers of movies and stuff. but there -- really, the idea was just to fill time. so there was a guy sitting off camera, no matter how long you went, you could talk, it was
12:08 am
like doing a castro state-sponsored speech that would go for hours. and this guy would just be going stretch it out. i got very good at talking for excessively long periods of time to try to fill time. but, you know, it was not a -- it was pretty rough start. not like you here. >> jimmy: me just sitting here silently. no, but listen, whatever happened, it worked out beautifully. i remember you did "talk soup" and then you had the show on nbc. >> that's right, that's right. >> jimmy: i used to watch you regularly. >> no, you dependenidn't. >> jimmy: of course i did. >> no, you didn't. >> jimmy: i was a lonely kid. >> what were you doing at 1:35 in the morning? >> jimmy: i was preparing for this moment right here. greg kinnear, his new show is called "rake." we'll be right back.

last time you were here, you were a mere commoner. the pool of humans i belong to. since then you've been knighted. >> thank you. you do get scared that you're going to get something wrong. i had massages for days and days beforehand so i wouldn't get cramped when i knelt down. i was terrified. i couldn't be there, could you give me a hand up, please? you know? >> the knight business has really changed. in the old days you had to cut a dragon's head off. >> now you have to manage the lactic acid. should i pad the shoulders? i don't know. >> jimmy: did you pad the shoulders? >> i didn't in the end. >> jimmy: you don't want to look like joan collins in "dynasty." >> and the other thing is tricky, you don't know what you've said. you see a recording of it, it
12:24 am
looks like you're having a nice conversation. she's saying hello, how are you, go home, buckingham palace, you're the queen, i don't know what to say. and you walk away and it looks like you were going oh, it's so wonderful to be here. >> she probably thinks people are idiots in general. every time she speaks to someone, they fall apart. >> this is absolutely the case. she shakes hands and when she's finished she does that. i swear to god. in this ceremony, there was hundreds and hundreds of people doing far, far worse. being properly rewarded. people get so nervous that she takes care of them. she has to tell them it's time to go. >> jimmy: here's your hand back. otherwise people are like that, either worrying about getting cramps or they're in a daze. >> jimmy: that's a skill not too much have to develop. >> exactly. >> jimmy: besides being a knight, well, you know, when you have an accent like yours and when you've been involved in the
12:25 am
sorts of work that you've been involved with, we as americans feel inferior, i think, number one. >> oh, shush. >> jimmy: are there things that you do that would make us feel better about ourselves? do you have any filthy habits? >> i tell you what, this is a silly thing, but i like to watch skateboarding videos. >> jimmy: that's good. that's very good. >> i can't skateboard. i regard it as simultaneously the coolest thing i've ever seen and the most absurd. and the thing i love watching is the kind of amazing optimism of skateboarders who do those incredible two feeled things up the stare wells where you know a part of the body and that rail are going to connect in a minute and it's going to be very, very unpleasant, but very funny if you're watching. the amazing impact of these things, it's just crazy. you know these are all smart people, they're all cool. they're doing a thing, bang! you know? it really tickles my tickle
12:26 am
bone. you assume that obviously, obviously i wish no people to be harmed in the making of these skateboarding videos. but, and i'm assuming if i'm seeing them, then they must be okay. and everybody gets up like oh, it's okay, it's fine. that kind of thing going on. but it's incredible. they fly through the air with the greatest of ease and then they look just so silly. >> jimmy: do you watch them on youtube? >> yeah. when you're struggling with a shakespearean soliloquy, it's great to go from that scottish kilts to watching someone falling over on a people of wood. >> jimmy: have you seen the jackass movies? >> i have. >> jimmy: that's right up your alley, shockingly. >> i confess, my guilty pleasure. i'm very happy to admit it. >> jimmy: from jackass to jack ryan. >> that's the most fantastic link i have heard all evening.
12:27 am
>> jimmy: you directed this film. it's great, by the way. you're the bad guy in the movie, too. i guess i wouldn't know, but it seems like a very authentic russian accent. >> did you study with actual russians to perfect this. >> i had a great russian coach and russian friends. i said tell me a little bit about the russian character. they said the thing you have to know about russians is when they're very, very upset, they gop down to the river, they spend the whole night crying and drinking vodka. i said that's very sad. what do they do when they're happy? they go down to the river, spend the whole night crying and drinking vodka. so if i do that, i'm covered either way. i can play both sides of the character like that. you essentially need a river by. that's what i plan to do. >> jimmy: do you like directing yourself? is it more difficult? is it -- i mean, do you yell action and then run to your spot? >> the two places at one time -- you have to be on kind of whe

wheels. >> jimmy: do you call for action yourself when you're on a scene? >> i do sometimes, but i often call cut because people are usually a little nervous of saying cut instead of me. at the end of a scene, i like to improvise a bit. they're a little nervous in case they cut across what i'm doing. but you get a lot of help. we had kevin costner in this movie. chris pine, who's wonderful as jack ryan. kevin costner has done both things before. 25 years ago, kevin and i met when i was making my first picture, acting and directing. and i -- we wanted to talk about doing the same thing. i said so you're doing that? well, what's your picture? he said it's a little thing called "dances with wolves." i said that sounds good. i think that sounds promising. so actually 25 years on, he was very kind and generous on the set. reminded me, when you're acting and directing, you need to give yourself a little more time, because normally you can rush yourself a bit. this time, i tried not to do that.

i had some help. i had some guys watching me. the time you act in these movies is the time they can't ask you questions as a director. between action and cut, you're free. it's kind of liberating. >> jimmy: i would think so. you guys kind of watching over each other, i guess. >> chris pine, who is so great in the movie. i'm sure he'll be a director at some point. when you're in something, you end up doing it with your fellow actors and keira knightley is in it. people aren't afraid to give me notes as an actor. >> jimmy: maybe as a knight they will change their opinion. if you stopwatching those stupid videos, maybe that will help with your -- >> i think that's given the wrong impression. could you come get him off the video? >> jimmy: the movie is called "jack ryan shadow recruit." we'll be right back with young the giant.
