12:11 am
that's very nice of you. you make me feel like the opposite of lebron james returning to cleveland. before we get to that, though, some stunning news from the world of soccer this morning. today, fifa, the world governing body of soccer awarded the 2018 and 2022 world cups to russia and the tiny nation of qatar, which is -- totally qatarded, i think. [ laughter ] the announcement was made this morning as the world held its collective breath. >> so, the 2018 fifa world cup, 2018 fifa world cup, ladies and gentlemen, will be organized in russia.
12:12 am
>> jimmy: they seem happy. so, that's good, i guess. the final vote wasn't even close. qatar beat the united states 14-8 and i don't want to point fingers, but this celebrity endorsement probably didn't help. >> in a country that admired individual achievement, we truly come together as a group. and there is no stronger, more resolute supporter -- i'm sorry, i missed a page. >> jimmy: well, when you're trying to impress fifa, you can't miss a page. this is not the first time the united states was beaten out by qatar. the first was in the most sand competition. they crushed us. qatar is a tiny country, less than 2 million people. population-wise, it's about the size of phoenix, arizona. but their national soccer team is nothing short of world class.
12:13 am
they average just slightly under no goals a game. so, no world cup for us. sorry, guillermo. >> no good, jimmy. >> jimmy: what are you going to do? the really big story in sports today, lebron james returns to cleveland. his first game back home since he packed up, moved to miami. not surprisingly, lebron got le-booed. cavaliers officials requested fans refrain from directing vulgar language at lebron or his family, even saying that offensive signs or clothing would be confiscate and replaced by cavaliers gear. which, so basically it was free jersey night in cleveland. lebron had a huge game. the heat clobbered the cavaliers. they did. personally, i hope all the negativity didn't ruin lebron's post-game hanukkah celebration. that's my main concern. oh, you didn't know? jewish. yeah.
12:14 am
tonight is night two of the eight nights of hanukkah. traditionally the second night is the night that jewish parents disappoint their children with festively wrapped underwear and socks. hanukkah is lots of fun for boys and girls around the world, with the possible exception of this boy. >> happy hanukkah. >> thanks, guys. >> hold up! matthew, i'm sorry. the tribe has spoken. give me the gift. see you, kid. >> jimmy: well, you know -- [ applause ] jeff probst. he's -- that's why the first gift of hanukkah should always be the immunity dreidel. you know, as -- i was listening to the radio on my way to the work this morning, and the song "do they know its christmas" came on.
12:15 am
and i was listening to the lyrics, and let me tell you something -- it's a good thing there won't be snow in africa this christmas time, because they would freeze to death. and another thing, thank god it's them instead of you -- what kind of a thing is that to say? i don't think god wants to be thanked for that. thank you, god, for the pestilence you've inflicted on others instead of me. you know, the old holiday specials are still getting big ratings on television. "rudolph the red-nosed reindeer" was the number one show on tv tuesday night. i've seen these specials probably 30 times apiece myself, so we've been updating them a bit here. tonight, we took "the grinch" the classic, and we mixed in the audio from the brand new episode of "celebrity rehab" on vh1. so, here you go. dr. seuss meets dr. drew. >> said you had a cocaine history. when was that? >> i did cocaine from 1978 to 1987. >> you were treated for addiction once? is that true? >> yeah, for pot.
12:16 am
>> and how much pot do you use on the average day? >> the equivalent of maybe a joint, joint and a half, because i -- i vaporize. i'm a standard a-hole when i'm not dosed. >> jimmy: there you are. that's why the grinch is green. [ applause ] the grammy nominees were announced last night. eminem led the pack with ten nominations. congratulations to him. justin bieber was nominated for best new artist. nice to see justin bieber finally get some recognition. that's got to make the other nominees feel great, right? like finding out you're nominated for best supporting actress and then finding out snooki was nominated, too. justin bieber was in london when the nominations were announced. they piped him in live via satellite. by the way, i figured out, when the announcements were made, it was 4:00 a.m. his time in london. so, they must have told him he
12:17 am
was nominated ahead of time otherwise he gets up at 2:00 in the morning and trucked over to a satellite studio to find out he wasn't, which, you don't do to the bieber. but he was. and told ll cool j what it felt like to be nominated for music's most prestigious award. >> i want to thank all my fans, everybody, i want to thank, you know, the board, i -- i don't know what to say. >> jimmy: the board? what's the board? the parents who are bored of hearing "baby, baby, baby, oh" over and over again? the bieb went on to thank his mentor usher, his mother and his testicles for waiting so long to descend. [ laughter ] each of those four parties played a pivotal role in his success. [ applause ] oh, hey, this is a video we showed the other night. an 18-year-old, named william, was video taping an otter swimming behind his house, and this happened. >> what's up little otter? what's up little otter? little otter.
12:18 am
oh, he wants to get back up here, i guess. holy [ bleep ]! [ applause ] >> jimmy: we actually contacted william and we spoke to him on the show on tuesday night. the otter bit him and then ran away. but guess what? today, they found the otter is that's right. the otter found out justin bieber had been nominated for a grammy and he shot himself, so -- [ laughter ] hey, we have some exciting news, for us, anyway, here at the show. my cousin mikki is pregnant. there's mikki. hi, mikki. [ applause ] she's the daughter of my aunt chippy and uncle frank. the baby is due in a month. tell everyone what you are planning to name her.
12:19 am
>> franki, with an i, after uncle frank. >> jimmy: someone bought one of those recordable books where you have the grandparents read a story for the child. that way, when aunt chippy and uncle frank have killed each other, they ask still read her a story. so, i thought it would be funny for them to read it on camera together, and i think i was right. this will be very sweet. aunt chippy and uncle frank reading to their baby granddaughter. >> and you press the button. >> begin reading after the tone. press stop when finished. >> okay. >> for my little princess. read to you with lots of love by -- >> why don't you fill in the name, frank? >> oh, okay, let's start over. here we go. for my little princess. franki, franki, though she's a little girl -- >> frank -- this -- don't get
12:20 am
nuts. okay? wait a minute. >> you get this one. >> a real princess doesn't need a castle or a throne -- >> no, no, start over. a little bit more enthusiasm. >> a real princess doesn't need a castle or a throne. a natural charm and -- >> more enthusiasm, please. my god, it's your first grandchild. >> i'm reading a story! i'm not on stage. >> just show more enthusiasm. >> i'm not on stage. i'm going to read it my way. you -- you want to get your own book? >> no. >> we can get two separate books, you can read like shakespeare in yours -- >> i never liked shakespeare. >> and i'll read it like a story like you're supposed -- >> i never liked shakespeare. he was never enthoousiastic. i want you to be enthusiastic.
12:21 am
just be enthusiastic, please. >> are you going to stop criticizing me? >> if you do a good job. >> you do the way you want to do it. let me do it the way i want to do it. >> okay, if you do a good job. i want her to really appreciate what we're telling her, with -- i don't want to use the word enthusiasm -- what's the word? entroachment. that means like -- >> you don't know [ bleep ] about what it means. where did you hear that word? >> i don't know. it came to my head. >> a real princess doesn't need a castle or a throne. >> oh, my god. boring, the way -- >> shut the [ bleep ] up. enough already. >> let me read the rest of it. let me read it. >> her happily ever laughter fills the air, just like a song. she makes the world a sweeter place. she does it all day long. that's entroachment and enthusiasm. >> finish it. >> ow. >> oh, please. enough already with your [ bleep ]. >> that's going to be a beautiful book for franki.
12:22 am
she's going to love this book. she's going to understand that i'm the normal one in the family. chippy's normal, but she's a little coo coo. >> shut the hell up! enough already. enough. >> let's be calm. >> i feel sorry for this kid. >> are you going to be a good or bad grandma? i'm not sure. >> was i a good mother? so, how can i be a bad grandmother if i was a good mother? >> well, you're older now. >> you're an [ bleep ]. >> jimmy: well, that's sweet. very nice. [ applause ] but i will say, aunt chippy, he is right, you have to be more enthusiastic and you have to entroach every once in awhile. >> i entroached enough. >> jimmy: mikki, don't let them be with the kids alone. >> okay, definitely. >> jimmy: aunt chippy, uncle frank and mikki, everybody.

[ laughter ] it's true. >> good. >> jimmy: yeah, well. so, you're in an acting class -- school, so you take a variety of classes. and they kind of set the curriculum. you have to take directing, writing, editing and then you have to take acting or directing the actor. >> jimmy: okay. and did the students in the classes treat you differently because you are you? >> um -- i don't know. i mean, i can't ask them, like, i can't say -- are you treating me any differently -- >> jimmy: do they stare at you and stuff? >> i tell you what, i -- i've been to a lot of different kinds of schools. >> jimmy: i know.
12:34 am
>> and the students at the schools are different. i have very close friends at film school. i have very close friends at the poetry program. but the fiction program, i don't know why, but i couldn't quite -- i don't know, i just couldn't meet people that i got along with there. and i didn't know what people thought of me until one day there was this -- there was this young woman who had this mole skin notebook and she was always taking notes in this notebook. and, like, even when the teacher wasn't giving a lecture, she would be taking notes. there's nothing to take notes about, but she would be taking notes. i never knew what she was writing. and then, one day, i was sitting next to her and the mole skin, like, one of the pages, the mole skin kind of came up, so i -- >> jimmy: you were spying on her. >> no, i just looked to my left, like, oh, there's one of her
12:35 am
pages. so, there was some random notes on it and in the middle of the page, it said, james looks like total [ bleep ] today. wow, so, that's what you're taking notes on. oh, like, that's what -- and she -- i mean, she's taking so many notes she's like kevin spacey's character in "seven." like, she's got shelves of these mole skin things. >> jimmy: evaluating your appearances. >> she has no know on november of this day, she knows i -- i guess i understood what they thought of me. >> jimmy: i guess so. and did you look like [ bleep ] that day? >> i probably did. >> jimmy: you probably did. >> i didn't have my makeup guy. >> jimmy: the -- academy awards is -- how are you going to work this in with finals and i mean, this is going to be difficult for you. >> that was a consideration. it's in the middle of the semester. >> jimmy: how did this happen? how did it come to be? i wouldn't imagine that you were
12:36 am
campaigning for this kind of thing. >> i never thought i would do it. and up until like a month ago i didn't think i would do it. but i -- i had done a little bit with seth rogen two years ago with the oscars and it was really fun. and the producer of this year's oscars is bruce cohen, who produced "milk," so he's a friend of mine. we talked about doing something and i, we've been talking for six months and i wanted to do a bit with the "twilight" kids. i just -- i wanted to be apart of that movie, by the way, like, the last two movies. i asked bill conden and he turned me down. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah. so -- then i thought, well, bruce, maybe i could, like, sing with rob pattinson or something on the oscars. and then we figured they took themselves a little too seriously. they wouldn't be up for that. so then we kept talking and thinking about things and two weeks ago he called up and said, i got -- i got it.
12:37 am
i know what i want you to do. i'm like, what? he's like, i want you to host. and -- that was a shock. and at first, my immediate reaction was like, well, no, i mean, i -- and then -- but i had three days to think about it. he said, when you come to l.a., we'll meet and we'll talk about it. so i had three days to think about it. and then i thought, of course, you know, of course i have to do it. it's, you know, kind of a once in a lifetime thing. >> jimmy: sure. >> i think it's better to do it when i'm young. it's not like it's publicity, or, like, push for my career, get people to remember me after i've faded away or something like that. it's not for any of those reasons, it's really just for the experience. >> jimmy: for the fun of it. >> and then i thought, what's the number one reason, like, you
12:38 am
wouldn't do it, and, you know, people have been saying, like, oh, james, you might get nominated for "127 hours," which is a big honor. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. >> but -- it drives you crazy, like, it will -- if i think about -- >> jimmy: really? >> yeah. you start thinking, like, oh, really, i might get nominated, well, then i got to, like, call out, and it makes you insane, and then, i don't -- all the work's done, like, i'm proud of the movie, i'm proud of "127 hours." >> jimmy: you figure, if you're hosting, you can somehow cheat it so you'll actually win -- >> no, because -- as far as i know, the thing that bruce sold it for me, bruce said, a host has never won. and so, for me, it was like, all right, so, if i host, it's like taking the pressure off. like, all right, i don't have to worry about that. >> jimmy: at least you get a funny line if you don't win.
12:39 am
at least there's -- >> what's the line? >> jimmy: well, you can pretend -- you know what you can do? grab the oscar and hurl it into the audience. >> if i win -- >> jimmy: either way you can do it. it would work. this is a major undertaking -- if somebody else wins, just destroy their oscar. no one will ever forget that. >> they won't. >> jimmy: anne hathaway is your co-host. do you know her? >> i have never met her. >> jimmy: oh, good, so the chemistry is there. >> we're text message buddies. we have good text chemistry. >> jimmy: and will you get to share a dressing room with her? >> that's in the contract. >> jimmy: the oscars are going to be right across the street. you will be our neighbor. >> yeah, well -- i knew i was coming here and i knew the kodak theatre is across the street, so, there was something i was hoping i would be able to do -- >> jimmy: do whatever you want. >> all right, just -- >> jimmy: are you going somewhere? all right.
12:40 am
well, i'd hope that you'd stay for the remainder of the show. but -- i guess -- >> yeah -- >> jimmy: no, it's that way. you got to -- you're going to have to learn where it is. well, i guess it's good that he figured that out now, but -- >> all right. >> jimmy: i hope he's not going to my office. i don't know what's happening here. he's not -- he's definitely going the wrong way, because it's -- it's on the street, it's not on the -- oh, look at that. that is our -- oh, well, that's -- that's -- i don't know what we should do. should we play a clip of his movie or something or -- no? oh, okay. oh, he's up on the roof. he is on the roof of our building. that is the roof of our building. it's treacherous up there, actually.

character's -- unlike a lot of actors who are essentially the same guy or woman in each movie, it's very different. it's weird. like, the guy reminded me of, like a guy you would go on a kayak tour with or something. seemed very real, like a very specific kind of guy that i don't think i've seen in a movie before. you know what i'm saying? >> well, yeah, he's kind of like -- the real aaron has a lot of different guys. of different sides. he's an outdoorsman. he's a bit of a modern day kind of hippie in a way. he would follow around the band phish. you know, like -- >> jimmy: loves the simple things in life. >> but then he was also -- he trained as an engineer. so, he has that analytical side. many facets. >> jimmy: danny boyle directed the movie, who did "slumdog millionaire." and there's some great stuff which i won't spoil by doing into it. but we do have a clip. you need to set it up a little bit for us, if you can. >> so, one of the amazing things about the story, or at least
12:48 am
what was very fortunate for us -- >> jimmy: not so much the guy who cut his arm off. >> well -- no, actually, fortunate for him, too, is he brought this video camera with his on the hike, so originally, just to film the scenery and, you know, beautiful nature. but once he was trapped he started using the camera to record these video messages. and aaron really did that. and so we could then use that as device in the movie for the character to talk about, you know, how he's feeling and show his emotional journey and deterioration and everything. so, the scene that you're going to see right now is when the character is really starting to lose it, because he's been there for days. he's running out of water. and -- he knows that the situation he's in is partly his own fault, so he's starting to face that and face the
12:49 am
possibility of his own death but he's doing it through humor. >> jimmy: and almost like a child, in acting, he's kind of -- he's got a lot of imagination, he's pretending being interviewed. >> you might know something about that. >> jimmy: yes, yes. i was a child for years. here it is. this is a confessional and, the movie is called "127 hours." >> now, is it true -- you didn't tell anyone where you were going. ah, yeah, that's absolutely correct. anyone? no one. oops. oops. >> jimmy: oops indeed. yeah. congratulations. i look forward to, you know, you
