tv   Late Night With Seth Meyers  NBC  April 28, 2016 12:37am-1:38am EDT

12:37 am
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- j.k. simmons, from "money monster," actress caitriona balfe, music from the wild feathers, featuring the 8g band with will calhoun. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers! >> seth: good evening. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] yeah. that is good to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. donald trump swept last night's republican primaries and hillary clinton won four of the five democratic races. so it looks like the general election is gonna be the billionaire versus the unstoppable force. in other words, it's gonna suck. [ laughter ]
12:38 am
oh. it's going to suck so hard. in his victory speech last night, donald trump pointed out that john kasich has only won one of republican primaries and asked his supporters, "why he is here." while chris christie was clearly asking himself, "why am i here?" [ laughter ] donald trump last night closed his victory speech with a swipe at hillary clinton and said, quote, "the only card she has is the women's card." said hillary, "it's called marshalls. [ laughter ] it has a name, sir." during his victory speech last night, donald trump dismissed the idea of facing a contested convention saying, "as far as i'm concerned, it's over." and by it, i assume he means civilization as we know it. [ laughter ] ted cruz gave his concession speech last night from an
12:39 am
indiana gym where the movie "hoosiers" was shot. while john kasich gave his speech in the place where they shoot "the walking dead." [ laughter ] donald trump's campaign manager, corey lewandowski, said yesterday that "despite calls on the candidate to become more presidential, he will never change." and it's all because of that note he got in his high school yearbook. [ laughter ] should he win the nomination, ted cruz has selected former hewlett-packard ceo, carly fiorina, as his running mate. but unfortunately he did so by announcing, "ted cruz has h.p.v.p." [ laughter ] a little over constructive. we worked a little hard for that one. yeah. all right. but i can live with it. it's not every day you can tell an h.p.v.p. joke. [ laughter ] and there's a reason, 'cause they don't work great. [ laughter ]
12:40 am
but next time you hear it, you'll think h.p.v.p. [ laughter ] and i apologize for the next time you hear it. [ laughter ] isis has reportedly started rolling out reductions in benefits to try to cut down costs. and now al-qaeda is trying to compete with them by launching "osama care." [ laughter ] [ bleep ] website. also have a [ bleep ] website. a restaurant in pennsylvania has started selling a pizza inspired by hillary clinton topped with buffalo chicken and hot sauce. they also have a trump pizza, it doesn't have any toppings but the crust is folded over to hide it. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] a jetblue pilot had to appear in court today after being caught flying into new york's kennedy airport while drunk. apparently he kept turning on the cabin intercom to tell the passengers how much he loved them. [ laughter ]
12:41 am
"you guys get me. great to be back up in the sky with you guys. at home no one treats me like a pilot. i'm just a guy. [ laughter ] here i'm a captain and i appreciate you treating me like one. [ laughter ] hey, you know what's funny? h.p.v.p." [ laughter and applause ] drunk pilot humor. a man in australia was rushed to the hospital this morning when a venomous redback spider bit his penis. on the plus side, now his penis can sense danger. [ laughter ] "hey, where you going the day just started?" "i'm sorry, i'm getting a tingling feeling. [ laughter ] gotta get out of here before i shoot a web." [ laughter ] [ applause ] and finally, a man was arrested
12:42 am
yesterday in newark for trying a take a loaded gun through an airport security checkpoint. where did he think he was, newark? [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] star of the new film "the meddler," a fantastic actor and a great guy, j.k. simmons is here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] also, she is from the new film "money monster," caitriona balfe is with us this evening. [ cheers and applause ] and we will have music from a fantastic band, they've been here before, we're so happy they're back. the wild feathers are with us this evening. [ cheers and applause ] but before we get to that, hillary clinton, as we mentioned, hillary clinton and donald trump won big in the last nights primaries cementing their status as the likely nominees of their parties. and trump immediately celebrated by launching a sexist attack on hillary's credentials. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: let's start with the democrats. coming into last night's primaries bernie sanders is facing intense scrutiny over his
12:43 am
insistence on staying in the race. >> is the prolonged campaign on the democratic side hurting that party? >> bernie sanders is hurting her now. >> if they want to continue to hurt the party and hurt our chances of winning in november then they can continue with the character attacks. >> a lot of people, especially in the clinton campaign, say that you're hurting the party and you're hurting her chances going into the nomination. >> i'm hurting the party. >> seth: i'm hurting the party. [ laughter ] is there anything better than old man sarcasm? "by all means, let's bring our phones to the dinner table." [ laughter ] but far from hurting the party, last night's exit polls seem to suggest bernie's candidacy has actually helped it. >> democrats voting in the connecticut primary there they tell us -- 67% say this is energizing the party, this ongoing battle between hillary clinton and bernie sanders. in pennsylvania, it's more so this case. 71% of democrats there say this has energized their party. >> seth: compare it to 71% of republicans who said, "i just
12:44 am
want to watch the world burn." [ laughter ] an bernie hasn't just energized democrats, he's energized millennials. a new study found the millennials' "attitudes on a range of issues have become more liberal in the past year." and that sanders is "moving a generation to the left." and not only that, but thanks to bernie, more millennials now also favor ordering soup at diners and taking the extra crackers home. [ laughter ] even joe biden is energized by this primary. >> in a "new york times" interview the vice president, biden, is defending sanders. and he says this, he says, "i don't think any democrat ever won saying, 'we can't think that big, we ought to really downsize here because it's not realistic.' come on man, this is a democratic party. i'm not part of the party that says, 'well, we can't do it.'" >> seth: come on, man. that's joe biden, the oldest millennial. [ laughter ] you don't get me, man! when biden's term is over he's crowd-funding a new app that adds his teeth to other people in photos.
12:45 am
[ laughter ] he calls it "instagrin." as for the republicans, donald trump swept all five contests last night by huge margins. so what happened to john kasich and ted cruz who were trying to form an alliance to stop trump? they got crushed. >> in connecticut john kasich managed to win six counties but donald trump won all of 695 others. >> ted cruz failed to crack 10%, it looks like, in one of these districts. >> oh, wow. >> a little tiny town, i'm sorry, salisbury, connecticut in the northwest corner of the state, is the only place in any of these five states so far -- five states. and we can find one town that has not been called for donald trump so far. >> now you can find two towns in connecticut where john kasich is winning. >> frankly, this is embarrassing. [ laughter ] >> seth: jonh kasich did so badly they were tracking individual towns to find votes for him. "governor, great news. [ laughter ] you swept maple street. it's worth .001 delegates." now republicans may not necessarily love donald trump,
12:46 am
but they do seem to really dislike ted cruz. and an awkward attempt by cruz on tuesday to recreate a famous scene from the movie "hoosiers" where gene hackman measures the height of the hoop to inspire his team, didn't exactly help him win over skeptical voters or sports fans as he didn't even seem to remember what a basketball hoop is called. >> we're here on the hickory basketball court. [ cheers ] and bruce, who travels with me, bruce, i wanna ask you something. do you have a tape measure with you? you know, the amazing thing is, that basketball ring -- [ laughter ] >> seth: oh, yes. the old basketball ring. reminds me of that great basketball documentary "ring dreams." [ laughter ] going down to the park, shooting some rings. ted cruz keeps giving us more reasons to believe he's one of those alien bugs from "men in black." [ laughter ] "i enjoy passing the orange sphere through your basketball ring. i have scored two units." [ light laughter ]
12:47 am
so trump celebrated his wins last night at a victory party at trump tower. and once again, he had one-time candidate, now loyal reek, by his side, chris christie. [ laughter ] now at first, it seemed like this instance of christie standing behind trump at a press conference would go much better for him than the last one after trump named christie as a potential running mate. >> would governor christie be own your list of names? >> well, i think he's fantastic. i look -- i think chris christie is fantastic. [ cheers and applause ] [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> seth: look at christie's face. that's the happiest -- that's the happiest he's been since that time he yelled at a teacher while blasting "thunder road" from his boom box. [ laughter ] he looks like the cat that ate the cannoli. but the love fest lasted for all of two minutes until trump, once again, found a way to subtly
12:48 am
burn chris christie, who let's remember, is a governor who was once considered a strong contender to win the republican nomination. >> when i announced, there were many favorites that we're going to win. others had other big advantages. governors of major states, et cetera, et cetera. they were all going to do great. they were all doing to do great. >> seth: "they were all going to do great and now some of them have to just stand behind me in my fart path. [ laughter ] but the worst part of the press conference came when trump attacked hillary clinton's credentials and said she was only doing well because she's a woman. >> well i think the only card she has is the woman's card. she's got nothing else going. and frankly, if hillary clinton were a man, i don't think she'd get 5% of the vote. the only thing she's got going is the woman's card. and the beautiful thing is, women don't like her. >> seth: women don't like her? have you looked at your number with women lately? according to gallop, 70% of women view trump unfavorably. even 46% of republican women view him unfavorably. trump is less popular with women
12:49 am
than the guy in the office who keeps saying he gives the best back rubs. [ laughter ] second, this gives us a perfect window into the addled world view of donald trump. a man who's name was already well known when he was born, who says he got a small loan of $1 million from his father, he's saying hillary clinton is only succeeding because she's a woman. hillary aside, this is the kind of [ bleep ] women have to put up with every day. after breaking through systemic barriers and cultural and institutional sexism built up over generations, if a woman achieving anything she's told, "oh, well, it's only because you're a woman." i mean, hillary was a secretary of state four years. trump doesn't even know how to pronounce the name of the country, tanzania as he demonstrated in a foreign policy speech today. >> look at what happened in the 1990s, our embassies in kenya and tanzania. [ laughter ] >> seth: you know, tanzania. like the cartoon, the tanzanian devil. [ laughter ] this has been "a closer look." ♪

[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: our first guest, tonight, is an academy award-winning actor you know from his work in such films as "spiderman," "juno," and "whiplash." he co-stars alongside susan sarandon in his latest project, "the meddler," which is in theaters in new york and l.a. it expands nationwide in may. let's take a look. >> i got to get going. i have to dogsit my daughter's kids and you know, my hands are loud. >> okay. ah, do you maybe need a ride or --
12:55 am
>> no, i can't drive that. >> okay. how about just this once, i drive it, and you can sit on the back. >> that's crazy. i would kill my daughter if she died on a motorcycle. >> oh, this isn't a motorcycle. this is a harley-davidson, a world of difference. >> seth: welcome to the show, j.k. simmons. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: how are you? >> i'm well. >> seth: i'm very happy to have you. i'm good. i'm very good. i want to start with the beard. it's a fantastic beard. >> thank you. >> seth: is it for a role? is this a role beard? >> it's for a role that i just wrapped friday. >> seth: gotcha. >> a film my wife wrote and directed, and my daughter told me -- because my next film, i have only have the moustache -- >> seth: uh-huh.
12:56 am
>> which i start monday, and my daughter said, "you can't go on with a moustache." >> seth: oh, so she's making you wait until -- >> so she's like, "keep the beard until -- yeah. >> seth: she -- your daughter would rather see you with a full beard than just a moustache? >> she likes the grandpa, santa clause look more than, like, '70s porn star look, you know? [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, i guess that's true. although, you had just the moustache in "the meddler," and i thought you pulled it off really well. >> yeah, that was a different kind of a stache, too, but -- >> seth: yeah. >> yeah, no, i actually like that look. by the way, that clip, the reason she's saying that stuff she's saying at the top is because she just spent an hour sitting at a table with a bunch of cops after she ate, like, three mouthfuls of pot. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] her character is not that looney. >> yeah. >> seth: she was full of weed. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: and now, your wife directed the last film you were in, and the one you just wrapped. >> the one we just finished, yeah. >> seth: and is it true that she made you -- not just beard for the role, but you had to lose a ton of weight? >> yeah, well, i was supposed to look pretty, like -- i'm a guy
12:57 am
that's kind of let himself go. >> seth: okay. >> so, it was either get bloated, which i've done in the past, and which is not healthy -- >> seth: yeah. >> or attractive or get kind of scrawny and look lousy on that end. >> seth: and your wife let you go scrawny? >> she let me go scrawny, yes. >> seth: because this is where you were at on the one you just wrapped. that's full scrawny right there. and i got to say, here's your -- this is from what? six years ago? [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> seth: so you got full chubby for this one? >> dude, i -- yeah. [ laughter ] that was just a bad idea. >> seth: what's the weight difference between the two? >> that's 85 pounds. >> seth: really? >> yeah. and which, i do not recommend -- >> seth: yeah. >> for anybody. i mean, de niro, you know, when you are 30 years old, for "raging bull," maybe. >> seth: that's true. that is different then, isn't it? >> when you're, like, you know, whatever, however old i was at that point, eating nothing but cheeseburgers and fries. >> seth: was there any joy in packing on the pounds? >> oh, yeah. >> seth: okay, great. [ laughter ] that's good. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: at least you can enjoy the journey up. >> it was a joy until you had to
12:58 am
walk up a flight of stairs. >> seth: yeah, right. that's the downside, is the stairs. >> yeah. >> seth: so this film, "the meddler," i was saying, is wonderful. it's very sweet. i feel like when -- there's a different movie you can see a comedy about a mom called, "the meddler," where it's mad cap, and she destroys everybody's life. this is a very lovely film. it must have been nice to make. >> it was really nice to make. lorene scafaria, the writer/director -- it's basically autobiographical about her, played by rose byrne, and her mom, gail, played by susan sarandon. they're both this genius and brilliant. and it is very funny, but it's real and sweet. and the character i play is, lorene told me, the only completely fictional character who sort of her wishful filament for the guy that would -- >> seth: oh, that would actually come on her. was there a bit of -- did you feel less of a burden, i mean, not having to play a real person? >> well, i felt a burden, you know, playing the scenes with susan sarandon. >> seth: yeah, that would be the burden, yeah. >> i was telling somebody recently, you know, if that had come along 10 or 15 years ago, i
12:59 am
would have really, really been terrified, but i was only mildly intimidated. >> seth: and you play a cop who is now working security on film sets. did you, have you ever met, or -- i mean, obviously you've worked on sets. you must be with these guys all the time. >> i hang out with those every time i work. they're always great guys. they have great stories. and so, i felt a real, sort of, obligation to, you know, try and represent. >> seth: you represented well. and it's also nice to see you playing someone sweet as you do in this film because in the post "whiplash" j.k. simmons era, it's nice to see you not play a white, hot ass [ bleep ]. [ laughter ] i would imagine post-that film, that must have been where the offers that -- >> plenty of white, hot ass [ bleep ] offers. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> yeah. you know, some interesting -- you know. but i was just like, "i just can't go right back there." you know? >> seth: yeah, so did you have to sort of tell -- did you have to sort of let hollywood know, like, "i'm going to keep playing those at some point, but i have to, like, switch it up a little bit." >> i just -- i just -- for myself. i just had to do -- i mean, the best part of what i get to do
1:00 am
for a living is doing something different every time out -- >> seth: yeah. >> you know? yeah, i get bored if i'm doing the same. >> seth: uh, you started on broadway. you were a stage actor first for a long time. >> i started doing shakespeare in the park for $11 a week. >> seth: right, you don't -- nobody starts on broadway. and i actually -- we were talking backstage. i saw you in broadway in '93, i guess it was. but then, you talk about doing things different. you sort of got on tv at the same time, playing two different roles. you were on "law and order." you played a psychiatrist? >> yeah, it actually was the other order. >> seth: okay, so "oz" was first? >> "order and law." >> seth: oh, oh, oh, oh. it was "order and law," right? >> it happened to me. i started "oz" first, which was the first thing for myself and a lot of the actors on this show. we're, like, theater guys. and just as i was getting scared that i would be the nazi bastard for the rest of my career. >> seth: yeah. >> then, they asked me to be the shrink on "law and order." so, it was this nice yin and yang thing going on. >> seth: there had been a lot of "law and orders." how many different "law and
1:01 am
orders" do you play that character? >> i was on three "law and orders," plus a show called, "new york undercover," all playing dr. skoda. >> seth: that's great. >> which i think is a record. >> seth: oh, four? >> i don't know if it's, like, if there's a guinness book thing for that or -- >> seth: i don't think it's the record. [ laughter ] you know what? and i know who has the record. >> who is it? >> seth: it's richard belzer who played a cop on "homicide," and i think he's been in, like, 12. >> oh, no. i'm talking the same cop. belzer as -- >> seth: as the same cop. sorry, you are not even close. [ laughter ] >> wait a minute. the first time, i -- well, that was a different character because i did "homicide" with belzer. [ laughter ] >> seth: you did hom-because there was a crossover. there was a "homicide"/"law and order" crossover. >> crossover, but i was different nazi bastard on that one. >> seth: oh, did you really play the bastard twice? >> the very first crossover. actually, that was why tom fontana who created "oz" -- >> seth: okay, "oz," of course. >> thought of me for "oz" because i did his show playing -- >> seth: you got very lucky because that would be a tough thing to sustain over years as playing a nazi bastard. >> yeah. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. well, i'm taking it home. yeah, my wife would not have been happy. [ laughter ] >> seth: now, this is interesting because i feel like
1:02 am
especially from "whiplash," that there's an archetype as to the character you played. have you ever, at any point in your career, had somebody describe or have to audition for a part that someone had described as a j.k. simmons part? because i know sometimes when people know actors, they start using them to describe roles. >> right. j.k. simmons with hair. j.k. simmons younger. >> seth: oh, that's heartbreaking. >> j.k. simmons only not a white, hot ass [ bleep ]. [ laughter ] >> seth: right, right. so, they push you towards it, but then, you know you're already eliminated. >> no, there was actually -- years ago, there was a voiceover audition back when i was in new york, probably 20 years ago. and, i was doing these promos on amc. i had this hairpiece, and i was -- i had the microphone. i was this 40's announcer. "coming up next on amc --" [ laughter ] and the specks for the voiceover, we want to sound like the guy on the amc promos. >> seth: oh, great. >> and i'm in there, auditioning, meeting the casting director, and i'm going, "i'm that guy." [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> "so, hi." and she goes, "great, well, you know, let's put it on tape." [ laughter ] and i put it on tape and didn't
1:03 am
get the job. >> seth: you didn't get it? [ laughter ] you couldn't do your voice? you did that bad? >> no, i thought i did it pretty well. >> seth: you're that bad at impressions, you couldn't do j.k. simmons? >> yeah, no. >> seth: this is for me, a comic book fan, you lived in the marvel universe as jay jonah jameson, and then commissioner gordon coming up in the new "justice league." this must be very exciting. >> its' very cool, yeah. and, of course, everything is top secret. >> seth: yeah. >> so, i don't know that i'm allowed to say anything else. >> seth: it must, like, have a lack of fun to it, how little you can say. >> it truly does, yeah. i think i'm playing commissioner gordon. [ laughter ] >> seth: and he might be friends with batman, but i can't -- oh, i really can't even say that? he might react a certain way when he sees a bat signal. >> yeah. >> seth: thank you so much for being here. it's such a pleasure. but you're going to stick around, right? >> yes, please. >> seth: okay, great. j.k. simmons, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] "the meddler" is open in new york in l.a. and in the united states in may. we'll be back with more. [ cheers and applause ]
