tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC September 18, 2014 12:36am-1:38am PDT
music from grouplove featuring the 8g band. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ and now, here he is, seth meyers. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening, everyone! good evening. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] great news. that is just great news. let's start with some political news. to start off with, in a speech today, president obama reiterated that the u.s. will not be sending ground troops to fight the militant group isis in iraq. he has a much better idea. he's going to send suspended nfl players. [ laughter and applause ]
not feeling so cocky now, are you, isis? [ laughter ] this is interesting. president obama has announced plans to build 17 health care facilities in liberia in response to the ebola crisis. but he promises, he promises that if you like your ebola, you can keep your ebola. [ laughter ] [ applause ] obola care. [ laughter ] he's calling it obola care. technically, i'm the only one calling it that. [ light laughter ] i couldn't believe this. radio host, glenn beck, said that hiring nigerians to work in america may cause ebola to spread to the united states. despite the fact that nigeria is not part of the ebola outbreak. look, it's glenn beck. just be glad he pronounced it nigeria. [ laughter ] it could have been so much worse. it could have been so much worse.
[ applause ] listen to this. the senator from washington state has proposed revoking the nfl's tax-exempt status because the league has not forced the washington redskins to change their name. said the nfl, "honestly, that is the least of our problems right now." [ laughter ] that is the last thing we are thinking about. [ applause ] hey, here's a little good news. eva mendes and ryan gosling's first daughter was born earlier this week. yeah. [ cheers and applause ] just what the world needs, another girl who's obsessed with ryan gosling. [ laughter ] finally got another one of those. this is kind of cool. spirit airlines has launched a new color scheme and will paint all of its planes bright yellow. they finally decided, if it feels like you're on a bus, it should also look like you're on a bus. [ laughter and applause ] can't argue with that. you cannot argue with that logic. this is just a shame. a man in florida was arrested -- he was arrested for masturbating during a yoga class.
[ laughter ] in his defense, he was just trying to get it back to downward dog. [ laughter and applause ] i, on the other hand, have no defense. [ laughter ] i was surprised by this story. a new survey shows that the combined wealth of the world's billionaires is $7.3 trillion. said billionaires, "ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! ha, ha, ha, ha!" [ applause ] that's what they do. i've met billionaires. they always have their money in a pile right in front of them. [ light laughter ] this is crazy. this week a construction worker crashed through the roof of a london fashion week show. though in fairness, it was the fall collection. [ laughter ]
i was worried by the noise he made that he fell through the roof behind me. [ laughter ] do you guys like krispy kreme doughnuts? [ cheers and applause ] krispy kreme has announced a new double hundred dozen box, which contains 2,400 doughnuts. experts hope it will become a safe and reasonable alternative to lethal injection. [ laughter ] that's right. the double hundred dozen box is 12 feet wide, 12 feet wide, and filled with 2,400 doughnuts. or as they call that in new jersey, governor. [ laughter and applause ] this is a cute story. this week a new york dog was found in florida after having gone missing two years ago. he went from new york to florida. so, it sounds like he wasn't missing, he just retired. [ laughter ] he worked like a dog his whole life. [ laughter ]
this is amazing. a new york city man who posted 15,000 flyers around the city, seeking a girlfriend, has gone on 65 dates from the pamphlets. which answers the question, is anyone more desperate than a guy who posts flyers asking for a girlfriend? yes, 65 people. [ laughter ] 65 are more desperate. [ applause ] and finally, police arrested a woman dressed as elmo in times square for demanding a bigger tip after posing for a photo with a tourist. witnesses said she went from tickle me elmo to tackle me elmo. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, this is the 8g band! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: so excited. we have such a great show for you tonight. joining us tonight, my good friend tina fey is back on the program.
[ cheers and applause ] always so excited to talk to her. from "the mindy project," the very funny adam pally will be joining us. [ cheers and applause ] wonderful guy. and tonight, we will have music from grouplove. great band. [ cheers and applause ] so, there's an old saying, i'm sure everyone is familiar with, "a watched pot never boils." and i've always taken that for granted. but today, i thought we'd put that to the test in a segment we're calling "watchin' the pot." ♪ watching the pot >> seth: so, we've got a live feed to our kitchen. let's get that stove going. so far, the water is definitely not hot. >> all: aww -- oh! >> seth: uh -- guys, i'm sorry. what's -- what's going on over there? >> hey, seth. we're just playing some jenga.

nephew derrick during the show. got your signature and everything. >> seth: derrick! get over here! >> all: oh! >> seth: i am so sorry about this, everyone. my 14-year-old nephew, derrick, is in town and i promised his mom i'd look after him. but it looks like i can't leave him alone for two seconds. sit down. >> hey, uncle seth. [ laughter ] cool tie. >> seth: don't "hey, uncle seth" me, derrick. i mean, come on. what are you doing? >> sorry. i thought it would be fun to hang out with the band because they're so cool, and i don't really have a lot of friends. [ audience aws ] i kind of feel stupid. >> seth: no, you're not stupid. you're just a little misbehaved. now, your mom said you have an earth science quiz tomorrow. why don't you just study for that? >> okay, i actually brought some flash cards. could you quiz me? >> seth: i would love to quiz you. there you go. that's very adult of you. all right, here we go. this is the level of the atmosphere where thunderstorms take place.

[ laughter ] derrick! when your mom finds out about this -- >> come on, uncle seth, it was just a prank. everybody's laughing and having a good time, right, everybody? [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: no, no, no. do not encourage him. that's really, really not cool, derrick. >> you're right. i don't know what's wrong with me. i'm sorry. >> seth: it's all right. but, you know, at some point, you have to stop being sorry and you have to grow up a bit. >> excuse me, are you talk show host seth meyers? >> seth: yeah, why? >> well, we're here in response to your emergency 911 call. >> seth: yeah, i never called 911. >> well, we have a recording. >> uh, yeah, hi. 911, this is seth meyers, the talk show host. [ light laughter ] i just spent the morning trying
to stick my head up my own butt, and now it's stuck up there. so, i'm going to need a ride to the hospital like now. and in case you were wondering, yeah, i made this call from inside my butt. [ laughter ] okay. see you soon. >> sir, you should know that it's a felony to make a fake call to 911. grow up, seth! >> seth: all right. you know what? [ laughter ] first of all, i'm really surprised they thought that was a real 911 call. and i'm really disappointed in you, derrick. i mean, remember when i taught you to skip rocks at brandywine creek state park? i mean, what happened to that kid i knew? >> well, to be honest, i knew i shouldn't have done those things. i was just kind of bummed out because -- today's my birthday, and nobody remembered. >> seth: well, actually, derrick, i remembered. yankees tickets, front row, you and me. >> whoa! you did that? uncle seth, you know, i actually got you something for your birthday in december, but i was
too embarrassed to give it to you. >> seth: oh, buddy, you don't have to get me anything. >> i actually keep it with me at all times. [ light laughter ] it's in my bag right now. but it's stupid. you're not going to like it. >> seth: no, i'm sure it's great. >> no, it's dumb. you're going to hate it. >> seth: i'm your uncle. i'm not going to like it, i'm going to love it. >> yeah? >> seth: yeah.

[ laughter ] you know i've watched him -- >> seth: i was a little -- i was littler then. >> you were smaller then. i watched him do, you know, i remember he did, like, sketches like "gays in space." >> seth: mm-hmm.

[ laughter ] so imagine what it would be like to be in love with timothy olyphant. [ talking over each other ] >> i have it. you're a creep. [ laughter ] he's such a nice guy, though. and he did in this movie, he plays -- like the guy i grew up across the street from. and we were -- he was the love of my life when we were teenagers. and then something bad happened and he's kind of not quite right anymore and so -- he's really great in the movie and he -- his wardrobe, he's the only guy who never moved out of his mother's house and so his -- his clothes were all, like, basketball shorts and shower shoes, and -- weird t-shirt of terry cloth thing with the tag on it. and there'd be days where he'd come in and see him in, like, a crazy outfit. i'd be like, "your wardrobe today is really heartbreaking." he's like, "i am not dressed yet." [ laughter ] this is my clothes and i'm very sorry.
>> seth: jane fonda. how is it like to work with someone like that? >> crazy. >> seth: yeah. >> i mean, you have to just pretend it's not jane fonda and, you know, i think having worked at "snl," we've seen so many, like, crazy stars come through. and you realize like, they're just at work. like, they don't want you to -- i think anyway -- they don't want you to always be like, "oh! you're just a big star." like, they just want to be at work. and she's an amazing actress. one of the first scenes i got to shoot with her, she plays our mom. we're a bunch of siblings. and in the beginning of the movie, our dad has died and i'm in the hospital room with her and then someone has to play our deceased dad. and so, it's this guy -- it was a super-nice older guy who had never done any background acting before. it was literally his first job. he's like, i'm retired. recently retired from the garment business and i thought this would be a -- [ laughter ] --fun thing to do. and it's like, "that's great." so we put in -- he's laying in this hospital bed. and then, jane is just like, a very brave and maybe method actress is like weeping over her late husband in this scene. and then, just starts kind of
like, kind of rubbing his crotch. [ laughter ] and, like, climbing on him. i'm like, "this guy -- his first gig!" [ laughter ] and barbarella is all up in his business. this -- every gig after this is gonna be real disappointing. [ laughter ] >> seth: even if he's a movie star! even if it leads to acting jobs. not just background acting. >> all downhill -- >> seth: yeah. >> --from jane fonda making love to a dead body. >> seth: and you don't even have any lines to worry about. >> yeah! nothing. well, he had one thing i bet he had to worry about. [ laughter and applause ] his age may have helped him there. >> seth: yeah his age might have been an advantage. this -- you also worked with -- you shot that in long island, right? >> yeah, we shot -- we show in manhaset, long island. and then this summer, i was out in -- i pretty much live in long island now. >> seth: yeah. >> 'cause this summer, i spent the whole summer making -- shooting a movie with amy out in, in bethpage, long island. a movie called "the nest" that comes out -- yeah.

[ laughter ] skulk through the wedding. and then, some dear friends of ours came out and took us out to dinner. >> seth: we did. >> seth came out and drove out to long island. >> seth: it was really fun because well, again, it's you, it's poehler, dratch was there. >> dratch was there. >> seth: paula pell who wrote it. >> yeah. >> seth: ike barinholtz and mike schumaker and i drove up. because you at -- by the time we got out there, i felt like you were almost a mafia family that ran that town. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: we went to a restaurant and we had a back room. and they were like -- >> bring me the brojol! [ laughter ] i don't know brojol. >> seth: they keep going to the kitchen, going, "she keeps asking for an italian thing that isn't a word. >> bring me the -- making up stuff. >> seth: hot -- for my friends.
and but you did -- there was a private room that you guys were - and you told us that you had been going to this sort of room in this restaurant pretty much every week. and paula pell who is one of the finest people on earth -- >> one of the finest people on earth. and then, no -- no bit is too much. and she did -- she did kind of a little dance, where she sort of like took -- pulled her dress up and was like dancing like crazy. [ laughter ] and i have the video on my phone. i don't know why i didn't give it to kevin. we can add it later. >> seth: yeah! >> i have the video. >> seth: and just in case we can, here's the video. >> pretend like you're laughing really hard. it's amazing. miller is in my dressing room. and so -- we had a few glasses of wine or whatever. and she was dancing and doing the -- dances and then the very sweet -- maitre d came in to the private room, and he goes, "we're going to have fun watching the tape tonight." and he pointed up and there were security camera like, on every angle. [ laughter ]
3d paula just, like, going for it. >> seth: and maya was out there as well. >> yes. >> seth: and you guys, you had full brood because you had all the kids. >> it was actually so lovely. because -- maya, and amy live in l.a. most of the year. and so while we were making this movie, dratch and i live here. our kids all got to play with each other which is the best little rascals, just the cutest. >> seth: i would get, like, pictures like this. how many is it? >> it's a to -- i believe it's eight. well, maya has -- is it nine? >> seth: it's nine. i might be nine. >> maya has four kids. >> seth: very easy to pick out. you know exactly which "snl" mom the kids belong to. >> they're like eli dratch is like is that big. and then, like four mayas. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: and there's a lot, like the mayas are like, real full -- >> the maya's are so cool. and then, mine are just two floating eyebrows.

was maybe going to be at petco." [ laughter ] not. so, we just had this little party for her and so it was like trying to think of lemony snicket things we had this whole like dress up and have a disguise. 'cause jim carrey, the movie is always like disguising himself. so we got all this junk to have disguises. and they loved it. and so they had -- i got like wigs and things a generic mask and whatever. and when i got the pictures back. what appeared to be a generic, i thought just a generic man mask, in all the pictures, it looks exactly like alec baldwin.

[ cheers and applause ] >> and i was like, did i subconsciously buy an alec baldwin mask? i went online to see if you can buy an alec baldwin mask. it's not, apparently i'm told it's actually meant to be a jim parsons "big bang theory" mask.

[laughter] >> seth: it's a party. >> happy birthday! >> seth: you promoted this film in toronto. >> yeah, we went to the toronto film festival. the one thing i found different is sometimes in the u.s., people will come up to you at a movie premier and be like, "can i get a picture," and you're like, "of course," that's what you're there for. in canada, there seemed to be this added layer of not only -- they didn't want a picture, they had elaborate scenarios that they wanted you to act out with them. this guy came up and said, "so, here's what i need you to do." i was like, "okay." he's like, "my daughter is a filmmaker." i'm like, "oh, my gosh that's amazing." he's like, "my daughter just made her first film." i go, "how old is she?" she's 24. okay, because from your hands, i thought she was nine. no, she's 24. my wife is keeping her in the
bathroom. so you go in there, and you -- i'm going in the bathroom, why? just say congratulations on your film. partly because i'm too obedient, and i kind of wanted to stop talking to him. i'm like, here i go. so i go in the ladies' room. there's a woman in there that looks to be about 24. by the way, super tall. i don't know what he was doing with his hand. i don't know what this was. so, i'm washing my hands, not having gone into the commode. just washing my hands. i go, "oh hey, hi, how are you? are you here for the film festival?" i'm a professional improviser. are you a filmmaker or audience member? she's like, "oh, i'm a filmmaker." i was like, "oh, that's so cool. congratulations." she goes, "did my dad send you in here?" [ laughter ] i go, no. and then she just walked out. >> seth: you didn't even leave
the bathroom first. >> i didn't, no. i was left in the bathroom. and then i went back out a few minutes later and another guy came up. >> seth: a different guy. >> a different guy was like, "here's how it's going to go. my wife is going to sit next to you. pretend you don't know each other." what is going on in canada? the last time you were here we talked about the phillies. johnathan papelbon the closer for the phillies was walking off the field, made an obscene gesture to the fans. >> yeah. >> seth: grabbed his, they were booing so he grabbed his crotch. >> right. >> seth: as a philly fan, what do you think is next for johnathan papelbon? >> i just heard about this before i came out. but i will say, not one thing about this story surprises me. not a guy getting booed, not -- yeah. it's a tough town. i just feel like he's a relief pitcher. it's good we don't know exactly when he's going to pitch again, because he's asking for it now. if he thinks that a bunch of philly dirt bags like me are just going to be cool, has he ever seen 7,000 people grab their crotch? that's what's going to happen. >> seth: oh, its going to be a lot. >> it's going to be a crotch wave.
it's going to be like the wave, but with crotches. >> seth: well, they call that move the philadelphia handshake, right? >> yeah, they call it the spirit of philadelphia. >> seth: that's the spirit of philadelphia. >> that's what they mean grabbing your crotch, angrily grabbing your privates. >> seth: that's the spirit it of -- well, thank you so much for being here. it's always a delight to see you. >> delight to see you. >> seth: tina fey, everybody. check out "this is where i leave you" in theaters friday. we'll be right back with adam pally.

in the egg. but you could see a baby ostrich you could have definitely picked out its parent. >> i'm good with faces. i'm great with bird faces. i've never met a bird that i didn't remember.

>> you're like facetime. i'm sure you facetime on your phone or ipad. it was just that, essentially. but you know, like the screen opened up, and i was nervous. i was like, oh, my god, i'm going to be doing scenes with robert deniro, and all i saw was a top of a head. and i could hear him being like, what am i doing? what am i looking at? what am i doing?
