[ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: thank you all so much. how is everybody doing tonight out there? [ cheers and applause ]
11:38 pm
news. tomorrow is election day. "well, that's just not true," said kellyann conway. [ laughter ] that's right. tomorrow is election day, so it's time to finally decide. are you with her, or are you with the fbi, vladimir putin, the kkk and scott baio? [ cheers and applause ] some baio fans in the audience. [ laughter that's right. it's finally election day, which means cnn's countdown clock starts all over again. [ laughter ] the final polls from the major news outlets show hillary clinton with anywhere between a four and six point lead, or as huffington post reported it, "a 46 point lead!" [ cheers and applause ] donald trump -- donald trump was rushed off the stage at a rally
11:39 pm
is surprising because i just assumed that's how people at trump rallies greeted each other. [ laughter ] "gun! and gun to you, good sir!" a good gun to us all! [ cheers and applause ] a good gun to us all. according to the new york times, donald trump's press aides have revoked trump's access to his twitter account in the final days before the election. [ laughter ] c "i love women over 40." [ applause ] hot stuff. nice buns. [ laughter ] that's right, trump's aides have taken away his twitter but don't worry, he is still tearing it up on yelp. [ laughter ] [ applause ]
11:40 pm
announced yesterday that the fbi has not changed its original conclusion that hillary clinton should not face charges for using a private e-mail server two days before the election. that's like your girlfriend saying turns out i'm not pregnant at the wedding reception. [ laughter and applause ] [ cheers and applause ] due -- due to the potential of legalization after election day. scientists are working on developing a marijuana breathalyzer to deter high-driving. said stoners, "you know who drives really high? planes." [ laughter ] justin bieber had an impromptu concert at a bar in canada this weekend.
11:41 pm
the chicago river was dyed cubby blue this weekend in honor of the chicago cubs world series win. [ cheers and applause ] yeah. give it up for the cubs and in new jersey the hackensack river was dyed jets green because of some kind of industrial accident. [ laughter and applause ] [ cheers and applause ] responders rescued a woman on a vermont mountain over the weekend after she got lost while playing a game on her smartphone. the game was called, "apple maps." ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] from the new broadway revival of "the front page," our friend john goodman is back with us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] he is another favorite of ours. he is starring in a broadway musical "falcettos."
11:42 pm
and we'll have music from the band we absolutely love over here the 1975. [ cheers and applause ] we have a good night. a couple of quick housekeeping things. i came out before the show tonight to say hi to the audience, and i noticed a bunch of people wearing medals. i figured out they were marathon runners. they finished the new york marathon today, so give it up for our marathon runners here in the house tonight. [ cheering ] yeah. very nice. show-offy wearing the medal. just a little show-offy, but then i probably wouldn't have known. [ light laughter ] also, we're not going to have a show tomorrow night because the news is going to be on. it's going to be talking about the election. so, this is our last show before the election. which means tomorrow -- wednesday when we come on it will be only a year of litigation until we know who our next president is. [ laughter ] but, you guys, we're finally here. the presidential election is
11:43 pm
as chaotic as the year and a half that preceded it. with celebrities hitting the trail and the fbi jumping in with another surprise about hillary's emails. for more on this it's time for "a closer look." ? [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: of course, both campaigns have been doing everything they can to get their voters to the polls, and for hillary that means relying on celebrities to draw eyeballs. she's been campaigning with everyone from lebron james to stevie wonder to bruce springsteen. it's like she's gathering phot "people i'm not as cool as." [ laughter ] and on thursday she held a rally with bernie sanders and pharrell. and pharrell's attendance led to this classic hillary clinton joke attempt. >> are you really, really, really happy that we're here tonight? >> seth: ugh -- i am telling you, if hillary wins, the toughest transition is going to be from the smooth comic styling's of barack obama
11:44 pm
that's right. i'm happy. in fact, i'm so happy i feel like a room without a roof, and by that i mean a glass ceiling that has been broken and i see they're giving me the lights so i should wrap this up. [ cheers and applause ] then, on friday hillary pulled out all the stops holding a get out the vote rally with jay-z and beyonce, who performed with her backup dancers dressed entirely in pant suits. of course, seeing the concerts tried to steal some of beyonce's thunder. [ cheers and applause ] the beyonce performance also produced the worst cnn split screen in history. >> there were electoral votes by congressional districts. that district in omaha is up for grabs. if he's able to win that district boom, he's at 270 electoral votes. >> seth: in what world is it okay to mute beyonce so the map guy can run through his data?
11:45 pm
does the map guy have somewhere else to be? because if beyonce hears about this muting cnn, i would be on the look out for woman in yellow carrying bat. [ laughter ] but this massive show of support from celebrities seemed to wound the fragile ego of donald trump. who literally spent the entire weekend bitching about it. >> we don't need jay-z to fill up arenas, you know. i don't need j-lo and i don't need jon bon jovi. nice guy. theye they're all nice. but i don't need them. without jay-z and beyonce and all of these people. we can get stars. we don't need them. that's almost like a form of cheating, right? i didn't have to bring j-lo or jay-z. the only way she gets anybody. i'm here all by myself. i am here all by myself. just me. no guitar. no piano. no nothing. [ laughter ]
11:46 pm
trump didn't bring a guitar or a piano, but that's okay. i have got an instrument for you, donald. the world's smallest violin. [ cheers and applause ] boo-hoo. of course, should be noted, with your hands, it would be a regular sized violin. [ laughter ] now, even more absurd than trump's whining about the celebrities was how the trump campaign complained about the language contained in jay-z and beyonce lyrics. trump's surrogate, scottie nell hughes, went on cnn and pointed out that a jay-z viha cocktails, but she called them something different, and so much better. >> when you look at jay-z. we talked about this that night. that he might be working on -- but one of his main videos starts off with a crowd throwing mozeltov cocktails at the police. [ laughter ] >> seth: now, for those of you who don't know, a mozeltov cocktail is what you throw at a jewish wedding if the groom is not a doctor. [ laughter ] congratulations on your union.
11:47 pm
and yet, at the same time trump and his team and complaining about musicians and foul language, he himself campaigned with ted nugent who has repeatedly made racist and anti-semitic statements. said thing about hillary that we can't even repeat here. and he did this on stage at a trump rally just last night. >> i got your blue state right here, baby. [ cheers and applause ] black and blue! >> seth: wait. what? [ laughter ] why are your genitals black and blue? it is it because you keep grabbing them like that? because -- you should go see a doctor, like, right away. [ laughter ] although campaigning with crotch-grabber ted nugent doesn't explain trump's new slogan, "i'm with deez." so trump never got any actual celebrities to come to his rallies but he found other ways to entertain his crowds. like this moment from today where he spotted someone with a trump halloween costume.
11:48 pm
look at this mask. oh, wow. wow. that's beautiful. [ cheers and applause ] [ laughter ] >> seth: he looks like a scooby-doo villain who is so self-centered he used a mask of his own face. [ laughter ] and i would have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for your meddling hispanics. they send their meddlers. mexico is sending their pesky meddlers. [ laughter ] but those weren't the only moments that gave us insights into how trump operates this weekend. there was also a very unflattering portrait of trumps final days on the trail in the "new york times." which revealed that in order to keep trump on message, aides to trump have finally wrested away the twitter account that he used to savage his rivals. they had to take away his twitter account. an embarrassing revelation that
11:49 pm
become one of his favorite hobbies this campaign season. burning donald trump. >> apparently his campaign has taken away his twitter. [ laughter ] in the last two days they've -- they had so little confidence in his self-control they said we're just going to take away your twitter. now, if somebody can't handle a twitter account, they can't handle the nuclear code. [ cheers and applause ] if somebody starts tweeting at 3:00 in the morning because "snl" made fun of you, then you can't handle the nuclear codes. >> seth: that's the stand-up comedy obama i was talking about. [ cheers and applause ] after his presidency is over, catch his new netflix special "you can't handle the nuclear codes." [ laughter ]
11:50 pm
now, if you are in a decades-long feud with rosie o'donnell, you can't handle the nuclear codes. [ laughter and applause ] if you tell your deepest, darkest secrets to billy bush, you can't handle the nuclear codes. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] the times story also revealed this disturbing anecdote about trump. despite losing his twitter account, "trump still privately muses about all the ways he wi punish his enemies after election day. including a threat to fund a super-pac with vengeance as his core mission." he muses about vengeance. he is like a bond villain, except instead of stroking a cat, he probably uses his own hair. [ laughter ] nonetheless, despite his tantrums about celebrities, trump has managed, at least by his incredibly low standards, to stay on message. but that message was undercut on sunday, by the fbi's announcement that they had not found anything in the newly
11:51 pm
immediately the trump campaign attacked the fbi for its decision to clear hillary. for example, the trump camp tried to claim that the fbi couldn't have possibly reviewed all 650,000 emails. which is, you may remember, were found on the laptop of former congressman anthony wiener as quickly as it did. trump advisor, general michael flynn, tweeted impossible. there are 691,200 seconds in eight days. director comey has thoroughly reviewed 650,000 emails in eight days, an e-mail per second. impossible. t because they have computer software that lets them search through e-mails quickly. what did he think they were doing? printing out all of anthony wiener's emails and going through them one by one to make sure it was the same dick in each picture? [ laughter ] yeah, that's him. that's him. whoa, whoa, whoa. hold on, hold on. no, no, no that's him. it was just a shadow. [ laughter ] so yesterday the candidates delivered their closing arguments at competing rallies in swing states, and i think
11:52 pm
stands going into election day. hillary, was with khizr kahn, the father of a soldier killed in iraq who was attacked by trump this summer after he challenged trump over his proposed muslim immigration ban. khan delivered this message to trump last night. >> donald trump, would my son, captain humayun khan, have a place in your america? >> no. >> would muslims have a place in your america? >> no. >> would latinos have a place in your america? >> no. >> would africanme donald trump? >> no. >> would anyone who isn't like you have a place in your america, donald trump? >> no. >> on tuesday we are going to prove america belongs to all of us. [ cheering ] >> seth: it was a powerful moment. meanwhile, trump was in michigan with a special guest of his own who had this equally inspirational message. >> i got your blue state right here, baby! >> seth: mazel tov.
11:53 pm
this has been, "a closer look." ? [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: we'll be right back with our friend john goodman, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ? ? ?

[ laughter ] >> seth: is this your first time running it? >> yeah. >> seth: okay. >> first time today. >> seth: okay, gotcha. did you do a lot of training? >> uh, no. >> god no. >> seth: overrated? >> i think that's the problem. these shoes. >> seth: oh, yeah. those aren't great shoes. they don't, they didn't even give you a number. [ light laughter ] >> what kind of marathon are they running? what, what's wrong with this country. that can't be fixed tomorrow. we've got a bunch of angry orcs out there. >> seth: yeah. >> who are just -- anyway. >> seth: anyway. >> it's good to be here, seth. >> seth: it's great to be here.

12:00 am
[ laughter ] >> yeah, he -- he sued. >> seth: did he really? >> yeah, he -- he threatened to sue. i think he threatened a lot of things. but he -- >> seth: we have a guy like that now. yeah. [ laughter ] it's another thing. that's another thing that didn't go out of style. >> yeah. well, he invents, my guy invents the red scare. >> seth: oh, he does. there you go. >> to hunt down bolsheviks in chicago. >> seth: wow. >> and um, fun ensues. >> seth: oh, okay. great. [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> seth: this is, but this is one of those plays, i mean, this is i feel like, the famous play that the where this, the very fast pattern talking. >> yeah, it's a, it moves a mile a minute. it's like a freight train. >> seth: and is it as stressful as you thought it would be, or is it easier once you get into it? >> oh, it's much easier once i get into it, but building the thing was, our director jack o'brien, would have torn his hair out had he had any. [ laughter ] he did a lovely job. >> seth: so you're in this film, nathan lane is in this play. he's one of the stars as well.
12:01 am
on broadway with him before. >> i was on broadway with him six years ago. we did "waiting for godot." >> seth: uh-huh. >> uh, 1978 i did my first play in new york was "a midsummer night's dream" at equity library theater. and nathan was in it, as well as dann florek who's in "the front page" as well. >> seth: and that "midsummer night's dream", this is not the conventional shakespeare "midsummer night's dream." >> well, it was based on shakespeare. >> seth: uh-huh. >> no, it was shakespeare, but it was a -- a disco n. [ laughter ] >> seth: so in 1970 -- >> the director had, the director had the concept while walking through studio 54 one night, and goes, this is not unlike a dream. >> seth: oh, no. did he ever tell you guys what drugs he was on? [ light laughter ] when he had that idea? >> i don't think he could afford em'. [ laughter ] >> seth: and that was -- >> i'll provide the drugs, damn it. >> seth: was that, was that a well received play? >> no. >> seth: no? >> no, i -- [ laughter ] because there was, there was the newspaper strike on at the time. >> seth: uh-huh.
12:02 am
reviewed us was a german newspaper. >> seth: and they didn't like it? >> i don't know. [ laughter ] i'm just assuming from my knowledge of german, that they raved about it. >> seth: did you -- >> the german people went nuts. >> seth: did you, working with nathan lane, did you have any sense of the kind of talent he had at that age? >> yeah. >> seth: oh, you did. >> very much, yeah. and i used to go see him after that, do stand-up and his act around town. >> seth: and john slattery is in the play as well. >> yeah. >> seth: and do you and slattery have history? we did a radio play about ten years ago, in dumbo brooklyn. the coen brothers, wrote my part of it. >> seth: and the coen brothers, you have a, i think a lot of us know you, from those films. you have a long history -- >> i have a storied history with them. >> seth: you have a storied history. how did the storied history, "raising arizona", is your first film with them, right? >> yeah. >> seth: how does, so that's obviously the big one. that's the big audition, you get that part, and then that gets

>> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] >> yeah, no i, i went in there. i didn't know a thing about em'. they had one film that i saw after the audition, but we just went in and just started goofing on resume pictures. >> seth: your resume picture? >> yeah, among others. >> seth: okay, so you were -- >> i was doing the goofing. but we just, started getting along like a house on fire, as it were. it was one of the best auditions i ever did. it was just fun. >> seth: and is it safe to say, walter in lebowski is the role that you are most approached about? [ applause ] and you, you are a st. louis cardinals fan. >> yes, sir. >> seth: and you had quite the honor, which is you got to go to a game, and you threw out the first pitch? >> you have pictures of this. >> seth: i got it, well, i only have a picture of your bobble head. cause' it's a nice thing to get your own bobble head. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: and but yours is a, is a walter bobble head, and there you are. >> yep. >> seth: that's a fantastic -- [ cheers and applause ] >> making a humorous face. that's when i had my stroke.

12:10 am
[ cheers and applause ] ? >> i just thought because i don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. >> seth: yeah. >> this might be the last time -- >> seth: sure. >> we get a drink together. >> seth: yeah, let's do is it. >> let's just do it. >> seth: 'cause we don't know, we don't know which one of us gets to stay -- >> seth: which one of us has to go. [ laughter ] >> which one's in a camp, i think we know which one. >> seth: here we go, cheers, buddy. >> cheers! it's been so nice knowing you. [ applause ] >> seth: so -- >> that's good stuff. >> seth: that is good stuff. >> i'm just going to really drink this. >> seth: yeah, i'm going to really drink this too. i'm excited. congratulations on the show. >> thanks for having me! thank you, it's like broadway night, here. >> seth: it's broadway, it's such -- it's one of the great choice about doing one of these shows in new york. is getting you broadway guys to stop by. i have to ask this question because everyone is talking about politics. >> yeah. >> seth: obviously on our show,
12:11 am
politics all the time. it's part of our show. are you guys talking about the election full-time at your show? >> yeah, constantly. constantly. the first -- and you know, it's like i think we take it for granted that, particularly in theater, but certainly most actors are probably democrats. and like you sort of figure like, oh, we're all in the same thing. and then we moved into the theater, and there was one stage hand who had a trump 2016 t-shirt, which is like super bold. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> if you are working on a broadway musical. >> seth:ea >> then he was just, like, gone. [ laughter ] so i'm not positive, but i think it was like the gay mafia came in and was like -- [ laughter ] >> seth: so it is real? it is real? >> i mean, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: the gay mafia is -- >> but he just disappeared. yeah, but we're all talking about it. and the crew back stage, we have a really fantastic crew at "the kerr" and their offices are in the basement and every office they have these monster tv's. and there's always, like, with the world series on. >> seth: yeah. >> like they were all -- that was, you know, all that was
12:12 am
but it was great because, like, at this point we've been running for about a month. they also know most of the lyrics to our show, so they were talking about the game, but then also, like, singing along with us. [ laughter ] so it's like just a beautiful little utopia in our theater of like the straight crew people and us. [ laughter ] >> seth: the rest of you -- yeah, so this show, this musical, a bit more serious than what we maybe have seen from you in the past. >> it is. it is. it is -- yw, there are parts that are very touching, but it mostly centers around this kind of unexpected family dynamic. the first act deals with this guy, marvin, played by the really terrific christian borle, who leaves his wife played by stephanie black, and his son played by this adorable 12-year-old named anthony rosenthal. leaves him to be with me. so we sort of deal with that. it's sort of -- i don't want to say it like it happens every day [ laughter ] now because that's not exactly true, but in 1979 when the show was written -- >> seth: a big deal, yeah.
12:13 am
then the second act, we sort of flash forward a few years in the future, and that's when things get a little sadder. our press department has informed me that i should downplay like the sadness aspect. >> seth: okay, gotcha. >> and the death. [ laughter ] >> seth: okay. got you. >> but like, the gay character comes down with something in the 80s. [ audience ohs ] [ laughter ] doesn't end well. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] very uplifti a yes. and that was very effectively downplayed. i don't think anybody got -- yeah. >> i don't think anybody knows what i'm talking about, right? [ laughter ] >> um, when you're doing -- when you do something like this, that obviously there's this emotional story. >> yeah. >> seth: and as an actor, you are trying to affect the audience with the story you're telling. is it weird to -- i mean, because assuming this is a bit of a tear jerker in the audience. >> yeah. >> seth: do you feel happy when people are crying in that you have done your job? >> hell yeah. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> yeah, i mean, when we hear audible, like, sniffles and sobs, like i give myself a pat
12:14 am
somebody who looks like hell after the show like they've been crying a lot or maybe still crying a little bit. you are, like, "thank you so much!"
