and featuring the legendary roots crew. >> questlove: 528! >> steve: and now, here he is, jimmy fallon! ? ? [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: ah-ha! hi, everybody. hey! looking good. looking good out there tonight. hot crowd. [ cheers ] welcome, everybody. welcome, everyone. welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome to "the tonight show." this is it, everyone. you're here.
11:36 pm
you're part of the show. oh, it's a good one tonight. welcome, everybody. here's what everyone's talking about. some big tech news. apple unveiled the iphone 7 today, and the big story is that it doesn't have a a headphone jack. instead, it has wireless ear buds called airpods. so, instead of spending seven minutes untangling your headphones, you're going to have to figure out another way to avoid working out. [ laughter and applause ] forget it. that's right. they're replacing ear buds with airpods. here, take a look.k. and i already lost them. okay. [ laughter ] i don't know where -- airpods. i have one. i have one pod. airpod. these wireless buds will easily fit in your ear and just as easily roll under the driver's seat where you'll never, ever see them again. [ applause ] can we take a look at that? here's the latest on the election, you guys. donald trump just revealed that he's not practicing for the upcoming debates in a
11:37 pm
been using a stand-in for hillary. which explains why today i saw trump at ann taylor loft yelling at a mannequin. [ laughter ] he was like, "that sweater set isn't very presidential. [ laughter ] sad! it's sad. [ cheers and applause ] it's really sad." and get this. hillary said yesterday there's so much speculation about her, she's prly jobs at the, quote, "conspiracy theory factory." [ light laughter ] then conspiracy theorists were like, "i knew there was a a factory. [ laughter and applause ] is it behind lincoln's face on mt. rushmore?" but here's some good news for hillary, today starbucks ceo howard schultz said he's endorsing hillary clinton for president. well, actually, what he said was, "i have an endorsement for -- [ light laughter ]
11:38 pm
hillb -- hillambee? hillambee?" listen to this, you guys. the "new york times" reports that the obamas could make $45 million from book deals after leaving the white house. [ audience oohs ] and believe it or not, the president's already got one book finished, it's called "are you there, golf? it's me, barack." [ laughter and applause ] he already wrote it. working on a sequel -- >> steve: he already wrote it? >> jimmy: working on a sequel already. and jessica alba's honest company is selling bipartisan diapers, featuring democratic donkey and the republican elephant holding hands. because at the end of the day, both republicans and democrats are basically full of the same thing. [ laughter and applause ] you know, it just makes sense. "sad!" this is kind of crazy. i saw that library in alabama is warning customers that failing to return a book on time could result in 30 days in jail.
11:39 pm
so, if anyone asks what you're in for, lie. [ laughter ] "well, snake -- well, snake, it's the darnedest thing. [ light laughter ] i am here because i -- triple murder. [ laughter ] i -- oh, boy." that's right. failing to return a book on time could result in 30 days in jail. so remember, kids, if you want to stay out of trouble, don't that's good advice. [ laughter and applause ] no. hey, get this, you guys. a new study finds that having sex later in life can help women's health, but can double the risk of older men having a a heart attack. or as women call that, "a win-win." [ laughter and applause ] "i have fun and get rid of this old snore machine? let's do it!" well, guys, last night was the season finale of "bachelor in
11:40 pm
the show already announced that one of the guys, nick viall, was going to be the next bachelor. right? so it was pretty clear things weren't going to work out for him last night. but listen to how he broke up with his girlfriend on the show. i'm not sure his explanation makes a lot of sense. >> i know, like, i'm a better person today than i was when you first showed up, because of you. i -- i felt like i wanted to say i was in love with you, but just something in my heart jus said i can't. and i feel like sometimes, you know, you wish you could tell your heart what to do. and if i could, i would -- i would tell it to choose you. >> jimmy: oh, please. [ light laughter ] come on. "i want my heart to love you, but then they offered to make
11:41 pm
my heart to choose that instead -- instead. [ laughter and applause ] and make millions of dollars." those weren't waves in the background, that was the ocean throwing up. [ laughter ] you guys, we have a great show tonight. give it up for the roots. [ cheers and applause ] ? ? [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thank you very much, everybody. it has been a great week so far. there's more ahead. tomorrow night, grammy nominated performer ariana grande will be here! >> steve: whoa!

11:43 pm
>> steve: oh! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: the one and only james cameron. and we got great music from vince staples right there. >> steve: yeah! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: vince staples is good stuff. guys, i've noticed this trend on facebook where people, they'll post an image of an inspiring quote on their wall for everyone to see. you know, the quote is usually by someone famous, like an actor, a politician, or a a historical figure. i love reading them, but sometimes i'll read one and say, "did they really say that?" quotes, you know, to see if they're real or not. i'll show you guys what i'm talking about in this next segment called "don't quote me." [ cheers and applause ] ? ? don't quote me 'cause i'm ? >> steve: good song. >> jimmy: huh-huh-huh-huh-huh. [ light laughter ] don't look at the -- this first quote is from the most famous writer of all-time, shakespeare. >> steve: sure. >> jimmy: he said, "when a a father gives to his son, both
11:44 pm
when a son gives to his father, both cry." that's sweet, yeah. that definitely sounds like something he would say. but here's another one that i'm not sure of. >> steve: really? >> jimmy: it's from shakespeare, yeah. he said, "when a co-worker gives you a piece of gum, you deff have stank breath." [ laughter ] >> steve: does not sound like him. >> jimmy: doesn't sound like him. >> steve: i like the sentiment. >> jimmy: yeah, he's right, but i don't know if it's him. the next quote is from winston churchill. >> steve: okay. >> jimmy: okay, he was the prime minister of the u.k. during world war ii. he said, "attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference." that sounds like something he'd say. here's another quote from churchill. "omg, please don't even talk to me until i've had my coffee in the morning. k, thanks, bye." [ laughter ] >> steve: really? >> jimmy: k, thanks, bye. i just don't know -- i just don't know if these are real. >> steve: i don't know if he said that. >> jimmy: i don't know. the next quote is from the poet carl sandburg. he said, "to work hard, to live hard, to die hard, and then go to hell after all would be too damn hard." that's a good one.
11:45 pm
he said, "the first 'diehard' is the best 'diehard'. the third 'diehard' is the second best 'diehard'. second would be the third best. then it pretty much went down hill from there." [ laughter and applause ] does that sound like something he would say? >> steve: yeah, i don't know -- >> jimmy: he's an expert on "diehard", yeah. >> steve: he's a diehard "diehard" fan. >> jimmy: the next quote is from one of the greatest americans to ever live, george washington. he said, "i cannot tell a lie." that's a famous one. here's another one. he said, "except when someone tells me about their podcast and i say, 'oh, i'll definitely check th and applause ] and that's -- he's a fan of someone's podcast? >> steve: i don't think they had podcasts in the 1700s. >> jimmy: this next quote is from one of my favorite writers, mark twain. he said, "go to heaven for the climate, hell for the company." [ light laughter ] that's a good one. he also said, "go to red lobster for the cheddar bay biscuits, because damn, they good." [ laughter and applause ] >> steve: well, they are good. >> jimmy: well, they're just delicious. >> steve: delicious. >> jimmy: i just don't know if mark twain -- talk about red lobster. >> steve: i don't think he said that.
11:46 pm
confucius. >> steve: oh, love confucius. >> jimmy: he said, "life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated." i hear that. >> steve: preach. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: here's another one from confucius. he said, "whenever i make a a pb&j, i spread peanut butter on both slices, then i put the jelly on. that way the jelly doesn't soak through the bread." [ laughter and applause ] >> steve: that's really what he said? >> jimmy: he said, confucius said -- i saw it on facebook, yeah. >> steve: he just said -- >> jimmy: he says it creates like, a seal. >> steve: oh. [ light laughter like a -- >> jimmy: that's what he's talkin' about. i don't know. not my quote. he's the one that said it. >> steve: no, it's confucius's quote. apparently. >> jimmy: next up is a quote from one of the smartest men to ever live, albert einstein. >> steve: what did he say? >> jimmy: he said, "life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving." that's great advice. [ light laughter ] this bit feels long. >> steve: yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: here's another quote from him. he said, "life is like riding a a hoverboard, you think you're being cool, but everyone thinks
11:47 pm

how to sing and play at the same time. >> jimmy: it's difficult. >> it's not easy, you guys. >> jimmy: the roots make it look easy. >> yeah they do. >> jimmy: no but it's tough. it's tricky. steve martin is the one who inspired you to play the -- >> i've been a huge steve martin fan all my life. and then as i got older and realized that well i mean, you know, you watch "the jerk," you know that that's a huge part of who he is. but then as i got older and really learned to appreciate his musical abilities -- >> jimmy: the movie "the jerk," everybody. >> yeah. >> jimmy: some people were like, steve martin's a jerk. >> he called him a jerk. >> jimmy: it's a very funny movie, yeah. >> amazing movie. >> jimmy >> but yeah, so i've been inspired by him. and -- >> jimmy: did you get a chance to ever meet him? >> you know what, i saw him in a restaurant one time and i --i never do this, but i was like, i got to say hi. you know i got to tell him --like he cares or something. >> jimmy: oh, he totally cares. >> he was actually really cool about it. he was super cool. >> jimmy: he's the best guy ever. >> he really is. and so he told me, play every day. and he said you can't play it if you don't see it. so don't keep it in the case. keep it out of the case. i got these banjo stands, so i
12:13 am
place. and i just put -- and now i have two of them. banjos, that is. so i put them in the different stands. and i play it at least, you know, a half hour every day. >> jimmy: alright, so next time you come on -- >> next time i promise you i'll have a song. >> jimmy: oh, that'll be fantastic. very good. well tonight -- [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you for that. >> jimmy: no pressure. >> no pressure. >> jimmy: i want to talk about "snowden," because i have many questions about this film. number one is, did you ever get to meet snowden? >> no. unfortunately, no. >> jimmy: a hologram? >> i spent a lot of time with his hologram. >> jimmy: you vacationed with his hologram. >> i went camping with his hologram. >> jimmy: that's cool, congratulations. >> it was really fun. he doesn't eat much. >> jimmy: he doesn't, the hologram. no. >> no i didn't get --you know obviously he's exiled in moscow, and oliver stone, who directed the film and wrote it also went to moscow and spent some time with him there. but you know, i'm playing glenn greenwald who is the journalist who -- >> jimmy: who broke all the stories. >> who broke the stories with him, yeah. >> jimmy: did you meet him? >> i've met him in the past, but i didn't meet him in conjunction with this movie unfortunately, just because of schedules and timing.
12:14 am
have spent a lot of time with him. >> jimmy: yeah. >> we're sort of --i play glenn and melissa leo plays laura poitras, who directed that amazing documentary, "citizenfour." and tom wilkinson plays ewan macaskill, the editor from "the guardian" newspaper, which is where all the articles were filtered through. and so we basically, within the structure of this film, are the portal to the flashbacks, which tell the whole story of snowden from the beginning and give, you know, a really good sense of what motivated him to make this decision and it you know, i thought i knew about the story. >> jimmy: yeah, because some people see him as a traitor, and some people see him as a a patriot, a whistleblower. >> yeah, and what i didn't understand really until i worked on the movie was that he -- his whole life, really, was geared toward serving his country. he tried to be in the military, but he injured himself and wasn't able to, and that's what led him to the intelligence community. so, you know, especially for people who think they know who he is and kind of have vilified him, i encourage them to see this movie, because it really
12:15 am
than even i understood it. it's really cool. >> jimmy: did you learn anything about hacking or -- >> oh, man. i learned to put some tape on the laptop camera and to, you know -- >> jimmy: really? >> i mean, it's so easy ,and when you really read the documents -- >> jimmy: what do you mean? i know the camera on the left -- >> you should have tape on that. someone could be watching us right now. not kidding. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: a lot of people are watching. this is "the tonight show," millions of people. television cameras. put tape over all the cameras. i knew this was going to happen. time? >> wait we're on tv? >> jimmy: i got a hacker! put this over here. this is ridiculous. we don't have -- stop watching us! [ light laughter ] i knew this was going to happen. i told somebody at the network, i said, somebody's going to watch this show one day, and you'll see. we're going to get in a lot of trouble. >> i walked right into that one. >> jimmy: no, i didn't know that. but -- i'm sorry. the laptop thing -- you do
12:16 am
>> touche. >> jimmy: yeah i know, sorry. >> no, yeah. i mean i didn't before, but when you really read, like, i read all these documents. glenn wrote a book called "no place to hide," which chronicles their time in hong kong leading up to making this decision to release all this information, and also then goes into the specifics of the documents. and just when you realize how sweeping and -- >> jimmy: easy it is. >> --untargeted these intrusions into our privacy really were, it just makes you not a paranoid person. i don't want to be a paranoid person. >> jimmy: yeah. >> but i do feel like, you know, part of what this issue allows us as americans to be responsible for is our own constitutional right to privacy, and that's really what's at the heart of this debate. so i think in an election year, it's a really good time to kind of brush up on your snowden and figure out, you know, where you stand on an issue that will affect us for years to come, because online privacy and, you know, cyber space is kind of the next frontier of government and unfortunately, of warfare. >> jimmy: i want to show
12:17 am
here's zachary quinto in "snowden." take a look at this. >> tell us, did the white house make any specific claims about national security that would prevent you from publishing? >> yes, i asked them repeatedly and they had no -- >> then there you go. what more do you want? you can go out and know that you're safe. >> glenn, i'd like to talk to alan before we go any further. >> when does he land? >> in six hours. >> no, absolutely not. we're sitting ducks here, janine. it's 1:00 p.m. in new york. if you don't get this out in the next four hours, you'll miss the evening news on the east coast. >> but we can post later tonight. i'm sorry, glenn, but alan's our editor in chief, and i -- >> [ bleep ] the government knows that we have these documents now. the cia could barge through this door any minute and you want more time. >> i have to go. >> act like a [ bleep ] journalist, and stop stringing us along. >> jimmy: yeah. looking good. you're awesome, buddy.
