12:38 am
three-and-a-half years in prison. [ cheers ] so, at least somebody -- at least somebody from the trump campaign is getting a second term. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] former trump campaign chairman, paul manafort, read a statement during his hearing today asking the judge for leniency, so he can spend time with his wife. said trump, "see? does that sound like someone i'd be friends with?" [ cheers and applause ] today was actor william h. macy's 69th birthday. and if you want to go to his party, i know someone who can help get you in. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] in preparation for it's eighth and final season, hbo's "game of thrones" has released a new wine collection. just don't let your kids drink it. [ cheers and applause ] according to a new survey,
12:39 am
morning people prefer using facebook while night owls prefer instagram while people who never sleep use twitter. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] a virginia woman was arrested this week after allegedly pretending she was pregnant in order to obtain gifts such as paid dinners and an expensive professional photo shoot from a couple trying to adopt. the couple first became suspicious somewhere around month 12. [ laughter ] he just doesn't want to come out. [ laughter ] a texas couple has started a company which creates and sells beer for dogs featuring names like "ipa a lot in the yard" and "crotch sniffing ale." plus the less popular, "this tastes like shih tzu." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] that's right. a texas couple has started a company that creates and sells
12:40 am
beer for dogs. said one dog, "hey, i don't remember your name, but -- you're gonna want to get tested for heart worm. [ laughter ] [ applause ] also, you looked like a ten last night." what do you mean? i look just like you. that's right. they're selling beer for dogs. they were also going to create marijuana for cats, but there was no need. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i'm good. and finally, california health officials have warned that travelers in los angeles international airport last month may have been exposed to the measles virus. while in new york, laguardia passengers have come down with something called rat leg. [ laughter ] [ applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight! [ cheers and applause ] his new show "after life" is streaming now on netflix. ricky gervais is back, everybody!
12:41 am
how about that? [ cheers and applause ] always so wonderful to have him here. they are the star of "billions" on showtime. asia kate dillon joins us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] and we will have music from james bay! [ cheers and applause ] very happy to have him back, as well. before we get to any of that, a massive college cheating scandal and the sentencing of the president's ex campaign chairman have exposed corruption at the highest levels of society. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: the past 24 hours have really pulled back the curtain on how wealth and power operate in america. yesterday a $25 million college admissions cheating scandal ensnared hollywood actors and some of the wealthiest people in the country. and today, the president's campaign chairman was indicted in one case for fraud and sentenced in another case, after he was already sentenced last week in a third case in which he was accused of stealing money and spending it on a jacket made from an ostrich. [ laughter ] in other words, rich people are
12:42 am
insane. [ laughter ] once you have that much money, it poisons your brain. you either end up bribing a soccer coach to get your kid into yale. or if that doesn't work, you leave all your money to your cat. [ laughter ] which is a ridiculous thing to do, since every cat already acts like they have [ bleep ] you money. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] good news! good news, cat! you're a millionaire! you mean, i wasn't already? [ laughter ] i'm pretty sure i already was. but paul manafort really had the worst day, because right after he was sentenced in one case, he was indicted by a different office in another case involving 16 counts tied to residential mortgage fraud. he was sentenced and indicted on the same day in a move that will one day be coined "the manafort." [ laughter ] but the college admissions cheating scandal is one of the most fascinating glimpses of how the wealthy and the privileged rig the game. more than 40 people have been arrested in the scheme including everyone from ceos to the heads of major international law firms to private equity titans, to
12:43 am
hollywood actors. >> federal prosecutors today revealed what they say is the largest case of college admissions fraud in u.s. history. charging coaches and affluent parents, including hollywood elite in a massive bribery scheme to fast track kids into some of the country's top universities including yale and stanford. >> the fraud, allegedly two-fold. parents paying to inflate their children's standardized test scores or faking athletic records to get students recruited for sports they did not even play. >> two hollywood actresses are among the dozens of people charged. the tv stars felicity huffman from "desperate housewives" and lori loughlin from "full house." >> seth: lori loughlin? why didn't you just bribe a college the normal way by donating money for a new building? you already had a name! [ laughter ] [ applause ] the details of this scandal are truly mind blowing. for example, parents bribed coaches at prestigious schools to get their kids admitted as athletes in sports they didn't play.
12:44 am
in one case, a teenage girl who did not play soccer magically became a star soccer recruit at yale in exchange for $400,000. now, that $400,000 went to the yale coach who was in on the scam and then had to, i guess, explain what they saw in the new recruit. [ laughter ] all right, everybody, gather around. this is our new star player. you're not going to see much of her out on the field though. wait until you try her orange slices. [ laughter ] [ applause ] some parents, including loughlin, even went to the extraordinary lengths of staging or doctoring photos to make it look like their kids were playing sports they did not play. >> investigators say lori loughlin and her husband agreed to pay bribes totaling half a million dollars in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the usc crew team despite the fact they did not participate in crew. court documents say they even had their girls stage photos as athletes. >> in one instance, a parent sending this photo showing their daughter playing water polo in high school, but, in fact, the photo was another student.
12:45 am
>> seth: i mean, of all the sports to lie about, i have to say, water polo is the smartest one because nobody knows how it works. [ laughter ] [ applause ] i don't even know what a water polo body would look like. i mean is it long arms and a tail? [ laughter ] [ applause ] of course, the plan would have worked until the kid showed up to the pool in riding gear and an actual horse. [ laughter ] [ applause ] now, there's already all kinds of normalized accepted pay to play in the college entry process from expensive test prep classes, to legacy admissions, to just writing a massive check, which is also known as institutional advancement. but the guy who set up this scheme, a businessman named william singer, explained in court that he was giving wealthy parents a way to get around all of that. >> in one phone call, authorities listened as singer told one parent how it all worked. saying, "there's a front door, which means you get in on your own. the back door is through institutional advancement, which is ten times as much money.
12:46 am
and i've created this side door." >> seth: imagine having enough money to legally bribe your kids' way into an elite college and thinking "how about instead we photoshop his head on to michael phelps' body." [ laughter ] and make no mistake, the parents in these cases were very aware of what they were doing. the fbi released one e-mail written by huffman when she found out her daughter's school would provide their own s.a.t. proctor, making it harder to cheat. she wrote, and this is a real e-mail, "ruh-roh, looks like my daughter's high school wants to provide own proctor." she literally sat down at a computer and typed the words "ruh-roh." [ laughter and applause ] making this the rare case where scooby doo was the criminal. [ cheers and applause ] this scandal -- it was you, scoob! [ laughter ] this scandal might be the most glaring example of pay to play in college admissions, but it's
12:47 am
not the only one. there's already lots of pay to play in the college admissions world that's legal. i mean, just look at the president of the united states. he went to wharton, one of the most prestigious schools in country and he doesn't even know how to spell the word country. [ laughter ] and if you asked him to spell the word prestigious, the red squiggle would just give up and crawl away. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] [ gunshot ] and let's not forget this is a guy who famously waged a racist campaign to get president obama to release his college transcript, despite the fact that as we learned from michael cohen's testimony, trump threatened his own schools not to release his grades and test scores. >> i'm talking about a man who declares himself brilliant but directed me to threaten his high school, his colleges and the college board to never release his grades or s.a.t. scores. >> seth: i shutter to imagine what trump's s.a.t. score was. it was probably the first time in history a college board wrote on someone's test, "it's better if you don't know." [ laughter ]
12:48 am
[ cheers and applause ] the culture -- [ cheers and applause ] the culture of inequality and pay to play at the highest levels of american society has been on full display over the last 24 hours from serial fraud committed by wealthy parents to serial fraud committed by the president's campaign chairman. people are finally getting a glimpse at how it all works. and they're all saying, in the words of felicity huffman -- >> ruh-roh. [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with ricky gervais, everybody!

'cause sucker is not offensive, is it? so just go beep, sucker. >> seth: yeah. >> will you bleep me saying "[ bleep ] sucker" now? [ laughter ] >> seth: well, now you've really put us in a situation. >> what if i was talking about
12:54 am
my old bird, though? that would be all right, wouldn't it? >> seth: like if you said -- >> i love [ bleep ] [ laughter ] but i kept chickens. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: i see. so you're saying you want to use -- and maybe we could steal that [ bleep ] and put it in the other one. [ laughter ] and then it's like, hey -- that wasn't from the show. that one was the wrong [ bleep ], but we stole it. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: the one you heard was about chickens. >> exactly. yeah, do it. >> seth: yeah. yeah, we'll check with our standards and practices people. >> yeah. >> seth: hey, this is a show -- i feel like as though it probably doesn't get established particularly well in the clip, but this is a show about grief. >> it is about grief. the reason i'm acting like that in the show, my wife is dying, and i'm very angry. she was the love of my life. i'm genuinely depressed, i'm suicidal. i nearly kill myself, but the dog is hungry. [ light laughter ] so i feed the dog. and that gives me enough to think, right, okay, i'm going to live for a while, but i'm going to punish the world for this. and i'm not scared of anything because i've got nothing to lose.
12:55 am
and i treat it like a super power. i have one last adventure and say what i want from now on and then i can always kill myself. so that's -- it asks the question, is life worth living after you've lost the love of your life. and that's the premise. so that's why he's acting like that. >> seth: you -- i feel as though you are always drawn to sort of bigger themes like that. >> yes. >> seth: was this an idea that had been kicking around in your head for a long time? >> no. it's one of the few things where you have an idea and that's the next thing that happens. you have a backlog and you try things out. but the seed of the idea was that. it was imagine if you had nothing to lose, you could do what you wanted. you would have no fear. and no spoilers, but the mugging scene -- in real life, we hand our money over. >> seth: yeah. >> 'cause we're scared of what happens. or we got a baby in a stroller. but he goes, bring it on. because he's got nothing to lose. >> seth: yeah. you -- it's also a nice balance to the show, which is obviously these grander themes such as our own mortality and the idea of loss and then your character, of course, has minor annoyances. i'm going to guess they're the
12:56 am
same minor annoyances you feel in your everyday life. >> i'm annoyed by everything. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. it comes across. i want you to know that, it comes across. >> does it really? but, socially i bite my tongue. i can't even, like, send my soup back if it's got a rat in it 'cause i think the waiter will put me on you tube. [ laughter ] right. okay. this is a true story. there was a -- we were in a restaurant in san francisco. and the waiter, every time he came out, we were eating, he kept going -- [ snorting ] and i was going -- [ bleep ] like that. and jane was going -- [ grunting ] and then -- i just wanted to stab him. i mean, oh, my god. on the plane -- right. on the plane over, there was a guy -- we were about to take off and he kept doing this. [ yawning ] yeah, yeah. and i looked at him, right -- a bit like -- twice. i checked he didn't have anything wrong with him. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> i was trying to figure that out. because that would be terrible. >> seth: that's incredibly polite of you. [ laughter ] >> and i made the judgment call.
12:57 am
and after the 15th time -- i was like, mate, can you do without the noises at the end? and then i had to sit next to him for seven hours. [ laughter ] but honestly, yeah, i can't stand noise. >> seth: you mention your girlfriend jane, now she must -- when you -- when she hears someone making an annoying noise -- >> she doesn't. she says i haven't even noticed it. >> seth: really? >> yeah. i go, we've got to move. yeah, yeah. >> seth: i guess in the end you would have to spend your time with someone who is more open to the world. because the two of you would be -- >> yes, she is very laid back. she goes, okay. do we move restaurants? right? but now i carry ear plugs with me. >> seth: really? >> just in case. in case there is someone is sniffing or whistling. or just an annoying voice. just someone talking with an annoying voice. [ laughter ] or one person dominating the conversation. i want to go, let him speak! [ laughter ] >> seth: so in a public restaurant -- how does jane feel -- >> she says, that's sociable. >> seth: yeah. >> she knows it's better than me going [ bleep ] right!
12:58 am
yes. yes, i am that guy. >> seth: you are the role, i should say, the profession you chose for this character is, he is a reporter for a local newspaper. >> yes. >> seth: what made you think this was a perfect job for a guy going through what he's going through emotionally? >> everything is a juxtaposition to how he's feeling in his head. it's sunny, he's got a nice life. he's got a nice job. but it's banal. he has to do these silly stories, like a guy who gets five birthday cards the same and he has to deal with these people. or a potato that looks like lionel richie. god, it's like the worst. there's woman who makes rice pudding out of her breast milk. [ laughter ] and he has to go interview her. and then his mate eats it and he vomits. right? so it's just like the worst -- it's just the worst time for him. >> seth: i liked that there was a stain that looks like kenneth branagh -- a water stain, and your character points out that -- >> no. >> seth: and he can't even draw. >> any stain looks like kenneth branagh. [ light laughter ] he has no discernible features at all. >> seth: it never occurred to me until that moment.
12:59 am
you're going back on tour for stand up, which is very exciting. >> yeah. >> seth: super nature is the name of the show. [ cheers and applause ] >> yeah. >> seth: what is -- where did that name come from? >> super nature, for two reasons. i sort of debunk the supernatural. i don't believe in anything supernatural. i think anything that exists is by definition, part of nature. and also super nature, because i think nature is super enough. i think it's amazing. >> seth: yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> i think -- you know. and i talk about that. like, we don't need angels and unicorns, you know. we've got the duckbilled platypus. when that was discovered, scientists thought it was a hoax because it produces eggs and milk. it could make its own custard. [ laughter ] it doesn't, but it could. it's amazing. they're amazing. [ applause ] it's amazing. >> seth: and you go out -- you obviously tour internationally. >> yeah. >> seth: obviously that's a grand idea that seems like it travels well.
1:00 am
do you have to change your act much? >> i don't, as long as i don't do what was on british tv the night before. but when you're dealing with like, you know, aids and hitler. it sort of travels. [ light laughter ] you know what i mean? >> seth: they say there is a lot of down sides to aids and hitler -- [ laughter ] the good side is that it really travels well. [ light laughter ] i want to ask you, this is a photo of you with some nieces and nephews. do you have a funny family? >> that's just one -- that's one sibling's -- >> seth: that's -- really? >> yes. >> seth: that's quite a brood. >> i know. and there's about 30. i don't know their names. [ laughter ] i see them at christmas. >> seth: are they excited to see you? >> they know i've got a bit of money now. [ laughter ] they just go through my pockets and run off. [ laughter ] >> seth: there must be tough with so many of them. how do you defend against them? one of you is getting your attention and then the wallet is gone. >> exactly. they're lovely. they're a lovely -- whoever they are. [ laughter ] >> seth: congratulations on the show. i'm really enjoying it.

[ cheers and applause ] ♪
1:06 am
>> seth: welcome to the show. >> thank you so much for having me. >> seth: i'm thrilled to have you. both you and your character, taylor, identify as gender-nonbinary, and i've hear that -- [ cheers and applause ] >> yeah. >> seth: there you go. >> yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: before you even had this role when you read the character description, you -- like it helped you even understand yourself better. is that a true story? >> that's right. so, prior to reading the character breakdown for taylor, i was familiar with the terms nonbinary, gender nonconforming, transgender. and i even identified as gender flui. but all of the transgender, nonconforming nonbinary people i knew had taken some medical step to transition to fully come into their identity. you know, from a young age, i knew i wasn't a boy or a girl but i certainly didn't have the language for it, nor did i have any representation either of a real person or a fictional character who was nonbinary but hadn't changed their body.
1:07 am
so when i got the character breakdown for taylor and it said female nonbinary, i thought, "well, if you're nonbinary, does it mean you're not female?" i just didn't understand how those words could exist next to each other. so as i do, i did a little research, and i discovered that, you know, female, assigned sex at birth. nonbinary gender identity. and for me, it just came together. we all have an assigned sex. a gender identity is placed on top of that. i don't need to change my body in order to be valid as a nonbinary person or as a trans person, and i was finally able to fully feel free to live in who i am, in my identity. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: that's great. obviously -- i mean, it must be so nice for you to not only have the role but just have that representation on screen. it certainly, i feel, nice for everyone else, because, you know, in the same way that maybe you didn't understand the terms. i feel like that's true of everyone else, as well. people who haven't experienced it or even thought about it as much. do you feel now that people ask
1:08 am
you about it in a way that makes you feel they're interested and wanna reach the same level of understanding that you've come to have? >> yeah. i really appreciate it when it's a conversation. when i'm given the opportunity to talk about my identity, it begins a conversation. and not only do i get to talk about how i identity and how i came to that understanding, but then i get to ask someone else about their identity and then they get to tell me about their experience, whether their a cis person or a trans person. and, you know, conversation is the way in which any type of understanding is going to come. so, i'm really grateful for every opportunity to have a conversation about it, including this one. >> seth: i appreciate -- >> thank you. >> seth: no, i'm very happy to be having it, as well. and, you know, we were talking backstage. i know david and brian who created this show. when you came on set, they actually had a meeting with everyone, just to sort of be helpful, so that you -- which is nice because it didn't seem like the burden of education was actual fully on you. >> yes, which is a great way to be an ally. you know, i wanted to work with showtime long before i got the
1:09 am
opportunity to. they're so incredible. they had a meeting with producers, cast, everyone, saying, "we have this actor coming in. these are their pronouns. the character also uses these pronouns." and it just made me feel all the more safe, all the more welcome. and then we all got to focus on making this incredible art project called "billions" that we all love so much. >> seth: and it's a great show. i want to ask. you're -- you play someone who is a math genius. >> mm-hmm. >> seth: a poker genius. is that true of you, as well? is that -- >> no, no, no. >> seth: no. okay. >> no. [ laughter ] i'm happy to admit that i'm terrible at math. although, i can count your money back to you from years of working in the service industry. [ laughter ] >> seth: yes, i'm happy to say -- >> yeah. >> seth: i'm so very good at making change based on those years as well. >> yeah, yeah. yes. [ applause ] >> yep. >> seth: and you -- on "orange is in the new black." and at a time when both were airing at the same time, people would approach you on the street. could you guess which one they were a fan of? >> so, you're talking about when season two of "billions" and
1:10 am
season five of "orange" were running concurrently. >> seth: yeah. >> and so, you know, very nicely, people would come up to me on the street and they would say, you know, "i love you on the show," and i didn't want to be like, "which one?" [ laughter ] you know? >> seth: "i'm in so many shows." [ laughter ] >> i mean, i'm just -- i can't possibly even discern what you could be talking about. but certainly i think because of the character that i play on "orange" who is a self-identify neo nazi white supremacist -- [ laughter ] i think people who -- people are wary of approaching someone like that on the street. >> seth: yeah. >> but those people then are not discerning that i'm an actor. that is a character. >> seth: right, right. [ laughter ] and certainly, you know, brandy and i have nothing in common. >> seth: right, there you go. [ laughter ] >> but then, you know, getting recognized for taylor is incredibly gratifying. you know, it goes from either sort of people in business attire being like, "we love taylor at the office," which is awesome. or i have, you know, parents coming up to me telling me their kid is nonbinary and they were able to really, be there for their kid and have a greater
1:11 am
