tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC December 2, 2014 11:35pm-12:38am PST
have a good one. >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight -- ethan hawke. from "mr. turner," timothy spall. and music from walk the moon. with cleto and the cletones. and now, and why not? here's jimmy kimmel! ♪ it's "jimmy kimmel live" [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: hi, everybody. well, i appreciate that. thank you. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching.
thanks to all of you for coming out. [ cheers and applause ] i have to say, i'm -- pleasantly surprised you made it in here. i feel like it's my responsibility as a broadcaster to tell you that water is falling from the sky. [ laughter ] all day. if you have to go home now to say good-bye to your families, i understand. it's raining in l.a. the whole city smells like wet ugg boots. [ laughter ] you know it always rains after you have your car washed? well, the reason it's raining so hard today and yesterday is because over the weekend, i had all the windows at my house washed. you wash the house, it really comes down. it does. [ laughter ] it's funny, when it rains in l.a., people get excited to wear their rain jackets and their hats and their wellies, and all that. the sun comes out at noon and everybody looks like a nut. [ laughter ] but it's good because, i don't know if you heard yet, but we need the rain. >> definitely need the rain in
california. >> we need the rain. >> we need this rain. >> so desperately need the rain. >> we certainly need the rain. >> we desperately need the rain. >> i know we need some rain. >> we need the rain so bad. >> we do need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> so need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> we need the rain. >> we need the rain in california and we're getting it. >> jimmy: yeah, that's right. i worried that -- [ cheers and applause ] seems like -- coming off as very clint. right now. heavy rainfall could lead to mudslides. but you know what, mudslides, wildfires, earthquakes, this is the price we pay for living in a place we get to run into ashton kutcher pumping gas. that's just how it works. while the rain is something to
celebrate for us, we are in the middle of a very severe drought and that drought has had a negative effect on the quality of our christmas trees. they say the christmas trees this year are not as big as they usually are because they didn't get as much water. they are advising people to buy smaller presents so that it looks like -- [ laughter ] so, our christmas trees are smaller and not as full because the drought, and yet somehow california still manages to the highest quality marijuana in all the world. [ cheers and applause ] we have our priorities, i guess. this is pretty great. this happened here yesterday. another high speed chase yesterday. these seem, i don't know if it's my imagination, but they seem to pick up steam around the holidays. the suspect stole a bmw and abandoned the vehicle and that is when things got exciting. >> on the 405 north. they got off the freeway at victory boulevard. and now here on sherman way and some really incredible speeds, into the center divider. a crash. a rear end collision with some
good damage. there's the suspect. he's out of the car. running from the car. with a skateboard. he's coming up on valuejean. gets very close to a pickup truck here. dodging a pickup truck that's coming into your frame here in a second. holding that skateboard. skateboarding at times. still trying to get away on the sidewalk here. trying to run across the street. he dodged the guy in a pickup truck. that pickup truck heard all the noise, he turned around. when that suspect made the turn, then the pickup truck tsh there we go. the pickup truck came around the bend here. pinned that guy in on cantley street. we can't see that yet. you'll see it in a second. police officers rolling in, tackling that guy, throwing him down to the ground. that suspect is in custody. >> jimmy: add that to the x games. that's pretty smooth. it would be funny in 25 years when he gets out of prison and they hand him back his
belongings and one of those items is a giant skateboard? you know, today is giving tuesday. and if you missed it, it's too late now. sorry, orphans. [ laughter ] giving tuesday is a day to be generous and give. it was a big deal online today. can you believe that we used to have to find ways to be charitable without hash tacks in the past? i don't know how we did that. the organizers say you can give back by volunteering, donating to charity or by letting your ex have the stuff she left in your apartment back. totally up to you. but this is the third year they've done this. and i don't know. i think they should have -- shouldn't they have giving tuesday before black friday and cyber monday? we don't have any money left. [ laughter ] last night on "monday night football," another sad night for the new york jets. tickets to the game in new jersey were reportedly selling for $10, which is less than it
costs to see a movie in 2d. there was a highlight. that came when, while mike tirico was talking up an nfl campaign, watch very closely here. >> young dolphin campaign here. nfl athletes grew up in playing in communities all across america. they are encouraging kids in neighborhoods everywhere to come out and play for -- >> you caught that, but -- he's got a bud light in a popcorn thing. [ applause ] the jets are even driving children to drink this season. [ laughter ] meanwhile in florida, there's a monkey on the loose. again. in florida. what goes on. it's like planet of the apes meets cocoon down there. florida has been terrorized by what they call the mystery monkey of tampa bay and now it's happening again. yesterday, a driver spotted a monkey running across the highway.
he said that at first he thought it was a cheetah, which -- [ laughter ] means he's probably drunk. didn't know how you confuse a monkey with a cheetah, but maybe we aren't dealing with a monkey. maybe it's a shape shifter here and he goes from monkey to cheetah just at -- otherwise witnesses confirmed it is a monkey. authorities say anyone who seeps the monkey should not attempt to approach, capture or feed it. they did not say anything about not dressing it up like a little detective. you can do that. a number of monkey sightings yesterday. some people even dialed 911. >> tampa police. >> yes, ma'am, the monkeys y'all are looking at, i believe i know its whereabouts. >> where do you think it is? >> well, i'm at the hills burrow river dam. >> i was just sitting in my backyard and a monkey just ran through it. did someone lose a monkey at some point? >> not that i'm aware of, sir. >> the monkey jumping the roof, another house and the tree and
another house. >> jimmy: very good. that's all the information we need, ma'am. [ laughter ] that sounds like the opposite of an emergency. good news, there's a monkey jumping on houses in the neighborhood! you know, maybe that monkey is exactly where he's supposed to be and we're the ones on the loose, huh? [ cheers and applause ] probably not. are there -- any of you taking part in secret santa gift exchange this year? [ applause ] well, time to start practicing your "wow, i love it" face. secret santa is a great reminder of the fact that you really don't know anything at all about the people you work with. we drew names yesterday here in our office. i picked my own name. they handed me the hat, i picked a name, i opened it, it said jimmy, a name nobody else here is allowed to have. and then i stupidly, instead of keeping it and not having to deal with the secret santa, i said, oh, i drew my own name and i put it back in the halt, which i was home free. i don't know what i was doing.
by the way, if certain people saw how you react when you pick their me, it would be a very unpleasant holiday. it really would. [ laughter ] oh, gold, i got paul. it would destroy them. i don't like secret santa. not because i don't like giving gifts. i do. it puts you in one of two awkward scenarios. you have to get a gift for somebody you don't know really well. you find yourself standing in a cvs. but the other scenario, when you have to get a gift for a coworker you're actually friends with, that's even worse. you were probably going to get them a gift anyway and you have to figure out, does this $12 hot cocoa mug you got him for secret santa count as their gift or is there now an expectation of an additional gift? i feel like this should be laid out in the constitution. [ laughter ] the founding fathers really dropped the ball on this one. and remember, by the way, if you ask someone, legally, they have to tell you if they're your secret santa.
it's the law. christmas is just a few short weeks away. santa is very busy right now doing god knows what. so, my pal and guillermo -- who decided, guillermo? >> you decided. >> jimmy: i did. to help santa out. we dressed up as elves and we had kids write santa a letter. then, we interrogated those children to find out who was naughty and who this year was nice. well, hello there. >> hello. >> jimmy: we like your outfit a lot, right? >> yeah. >> jimmy: you look like one of us. >> yes. >> jimmy: yes, well, it's very christmassy and i like the boots, too. can i have your letter to santa? >> yeah. >> jimmy: thank you. what is your name? >> ryan. >> jimmy: dear santa, merry christmas. i loved when you brought me presents. that's nice. i really want an american girl doll and a big elsa doll. love, ryan. good letter. you get right to it. >> yes.
>> jimmy: not too many things on it. you say you want two things and -- >> yes. >> jimmy: you describe them. let's see. i have some facts about you here. santa's been watching you. and he says you fold and put away your own laundry. >> yes. >> jimmy: that's very good. santa says you've been cleaning up your toys. you've been sharing. you're nice to all the kids. you tell your parents you love them. >> yes. >> jimmy: that's very, very nice. congratulations. >> thank you. >> jimmy: there are some naughty things i see on this list. >> there is? >> jimmy: it says here that sometimes you draw on the furniture with markers. >> well -- i just wanted to see how tall i am. >> jimmy: oh. how tall are you? >> like this big. >> oh. that's good. >> jimmy: okay. >> really big. >> jimmy: um -- says ryan loves her sister but always hits her in the face. >> because she does mean things
to me. >> jimmy: okay. >> very mean things. >> jimmy: what kind of things does she do? >> she hits me. >> she hits you? >> jimmy: oh. >> she's biting me on the arm one time. >> oh. >> jimmy: did it hurt? >> yes. >> jimmy: should we tell santa than? >> yes, only about riley. >> jimmy: only about her, right? we won't tell him about the things that you've done. >> no. >> jimmy: just about the things riley has done. >> yes. >> jimmy: tell us some other things riley's done. >> she did other stuff that's really, really bad. >> jimmy: wow. like what? >> hitting me a lot of times. >> wow. >> jimmy: what else? >> bite me like more times. >> jimmy: is she a puppy? >> no, she's a sister. >> jimmy: because if she was a puppy, i would say, okay, well, that's what they do, but -- a sister? to be biting another sister?
santa will not like hearing that at all. >> no. >> jimmy: she might not get any gifts this year. are you okay with that? >> yes. >> jimmy: you are. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you think we should have santa bring you 100 gifts and no gifts for your sister? >> well, like, two gifts for my sister. >> jimmy: two gifts. >> but a lot for me. >> jimmy: a lot for you and two gifts for your sister. >> yes. >> jimmy: what if santa says, listen. i can't bring her anything but you're going to have to share all your gifts with her if you want -- will you do that? >> i share toys with her and she shares toys with me. >> jimmy: okay. well, that's a good thing that she does. >> yes. >> jimmy: are there any other good things she does? >> no. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: all right, well, everything seems to be in order here. you want the american girl doll, you want the big elsa doll. anything else you'd like? >> no. >> jimmy: that's it, huh? >> yes. >> jimmy: all right. we can't tell you what santa's going to do, but i have a feeling he's going to be very
happy with this application. we're going to ask one thing. >> okay. >> jimmy: try to be good for the rest of the year. >> okay. >> jimmy: okay. i think you'd have to do something pretty drastic, like hold up a convenience store. you're not plank any armed robberies are you? >> no. >> jimmy: okay, good. >> all right. >> jimmy: that's good. don't steal any cars or knock over any liquor stores and we should be fine. >> okay. >> jimmy: very nice to meet you, ryan. >> very nice to meet you. >> nice to meet you. >> jimmy: w0u8d yould you like y cane? >> yes. >> jimmy: you want to bring one to your sister? >> yes. >> jimmy: you do? wow, what a good kid. >> thank you. >> jimmy: santa's going to be very happy with you. thank you. >> bye. >> jimmy: bye. merry christmas. >> merry christmas! >> jimmy: what a little rat, right? i mean, adorable, don't get me wrong, but -- a total narc.

>> jimmy: hello there. tonight, a thespian and a gentleman, he just won the new york film critics circle award for best actor for his work in the new movie "mr. turner", timothy spall is here. then, straight out of cincinnati, ohio, their new album came out today. it's called "talking is hard." walk the moon from the at&t stage. tomorrow night, what a night tomorrow night. sofia vergara will be here. j.k. simmons will be here. and we'll find out who has what it takes in the season finale of our realitalent show "do you have what it takes?" and i would like to also mention again that it is giving tuesday, and it is not too late to give. guillermo and i are raffling off a chance to be v.i.p. guests for
a taping of this show. and, to get a piggy back ride from us to support the art of elysium, which is a nonprofit that brings creativity and inspiration to hospitalized children. anyone who donates as little as $10 can win. the prize includes airfare and a four-star hotel. and you can enter, go to omaze.com/jimmy. that is my name, and i tell you what. i'd love to have you on my back, so, please go and do that. our first guest tonight is an oscar and tony-nominated actor who spent 12 years shooting his latest movie, so, the least we could do is spend a couple of hours watching it. yesterday, it was awarded three major awards including best picture by the new york film critics circle. the great film "boyhood" comes out on blu-ray and dvd january 6th. please welcome ethan hawke. [ cheers and applause ]
>> jimmy: congratulations. >> thank you. >> jimmy: on all the awards. you were nice enough to come here when the movie first came out and now it -- best picture is -- of the year, that's a big deal. >> that's pretty good, right? >> jimmy: and these are serious film critics in new york. >> a tough crowd. >> jimmy: really. >> when we started this, i don't think anybody in their wildest fascination would have ever thought this was going to happen with this movie. >> jimmy: that's interesting, because for those of you that don't know, you shot the movie over the course of 12 years. you picked up a little bit here and there every year. >> "training day" had just come out when richard approached me with the idea for this film. would i play the father in a portrait of a family over 12 years? and so when it started, it seemed like it was some kind of radical, you know, '60s film experiment or something. i'd go do scenes from it, i'd
come back and people would say, what are you doing? i did this thing, oh, when is it going to come out? oh, in about 11 years. it seemed so farfetched. and so now it's actually a proper movie and it is getting prizes and become treated like a normal film. >> jimmy: seems like we'd have hover boards by the time it came out. it's interesting that you are sure pritzed it's being received so well. the idea you would sign up to do a knew vie that takes 12 years to shoot. you have to have a good feeling -- because if it's crap, you wasted 12 years. [ laughter ] >> i didn't think. >> jimmy: that's true. the young man who plays your son, he's a little kid to start with. >> yeah. el ealer coltrane. >> jimmy: you saw this kid, you were part of his life for such a long period of time. is it strange now that you're not working together every once in awhile? do you see him? >> it seems like it would be, except for that fact that this is far more intense, i mean,
releasing the movie is really more intense than making it. making it was really fun. it felt -- it sounds weird, but when something's not coming up for six, seven years, you don't worry about how it's going to go. i mean, it is probably going to fall apart. >> jimmy: i don't know what you mean by that. >> we just had a lot of fun. and it felt really safe and it felt -- it was a really creative thing to do with these kids. because it's not just eller. it's lorelei plays the sister. and we had so much fun. the releasing of it, promoting it is the first time it feels like a job, you know? it's -- and i think that's really hard for the young people. >> jimmy: do you keep in touch -- >> oh, sure. we just spent thanksgiving together. >> jimmy: you did? that's nice. >> he's a great young man. and for me -- >> jimmy: does he think you're his real father now? [ laughter ] >> he's not confused. >> jimmy: very long time. >> he's not confused.
he has a proper father, who happens to be an awesome guy. >> jimmy: thinks you're still shooting the movie. >> yeah, no. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: well, that's nice. have you guys talked about maybe continuing to shoot for the next 12 years, another -- is there ever a discussion of that? i'm not joking. it would be a good idea. why not make the sequel in another 12 years? >> i mean, i see where you're going with this idea. >> jimmy: i want to keep going until you die. [ laughter ] >> that's the nicest thing anybody's ever said to me. [ cheers and applause ] but then i won't get to see it. >> jimmy: it is really good. we won't get to see it, either, but -- you know. >> interesting experiment. then it would get really radical. >> jimmy: yeah, it would. why not? go radical. go crazy with it. >> when i first startled the movie, a lot of times when you make a movie, you to shoot the last scene first.
>> jimmy: that seems terrible to me. >> i kept thinking if that happened on this movie, i really think i would have thought so much more dramatic things would have happened in 12 years. if i have to do this -- i'm 44 now, and i was 32 when we started, right? and when i was 32, i was asked to play a 44-year-old, i think i would have put a big paunch, had a cane, you know? nice to be here, jimmy, you know? >> jimmy: i said to richard when he was here, you really haven't -- you barely aged at all over 12 years. >> that's not true. >> jimmy: it is true, though. maybe -- i don't know, maybe it looks different to you. >> you want to watch the movie until i die, which sounds like a compliment, but kind of not. >> jimmy: it was a compliment. >> i'm definitely -- i went in to get fitted for glasses the other day, which was really -- i know people say this, but when it happens to you -- >> jimmy: reading glasses, or -- >> it's not just reading glasses. the whole thing's going. [ laughter ] but it's weird, when you just
start to become your father, you know, i picked these glasses, i looked in the mirror and i could finally see myself. like you, i thought i wasn't aging and then i got these glasses. >> jimmy: maybe i need glasses is what i need. >> i look just like my dad. >> jimmy: isn't it a weird thing when you put them on, you take to them instantly. yes, i need these. >> i don't know what i was doing. >> jimmy: maybe -- it would be a great thing. >> i shouldn't have been driving. >> jimmy: we'll take a commercial break here. when we come back, maybe we can see you in your glasses. or -- >> my wife would kill me. she thinks i look like a serial killer. >> jimmy: when we come back, we're going to see a man in glasses. we'll be right back.
♪ [laughing] ♪ i hait's tough, but severi've managed.ease. but managing my symptoms was all i was doing. so when i finally told my doctor, he said humira is for adults like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. and that in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened;

sculpture are you making? >> jimmy: very good question. that's "boyhood," it comes out next month on dvd and blu-ray. here we go. wow. [ cheers and applause ] it worked. very clark kent. >> it works. >> jimmy: your glasses are in the back, so we borrowed them from our announcer dicky, who is now completely blind. according to imdb and sometimes it is not correct, you have six movies coming out next year. >> sounds like a lot. >> jimmy: that does sound like a lot. >> it's a little misleading. >> jimmy: is it? >> sometimes i make them two years ago and it takes awhile for them to come out. i don't know, just yesterday, i don't know if you read about this, but there's been a lot of pirating movies. i have a movie coming out called "predestination" that is a great movie. 40,000 people watched it yesterday. >> jimmy: oh, they did? >> yeah, but they didn't pay for
it. >> jimmy: great. >> not really my problem. but the only good news is about the pirates is that they liked the movie a lot. they wrote a lot of nice things. first, i was mad. oh, you liked it? thought ill w was good? i'm really not that -- >> jimmy: you have friendly pirates. rarely do you see -- >> you can't be mad. >> jimmy: that's unfortunate, though. and you are playing the trumpet player chet baker in a movie right now. >> i'm out here in l.a. finishing that movie in the next couple of days. >> jimmy: that's an interesting role to play. he was a heroin addict. >> there is that, yeah. >> jimmy: didn't he get his teeth beat out of his face and he was a trumpet player and caused him -- >> yeah, that's the story that i'm doing centers around that. the time period that he got beat up. he lost all of his teeth and couldn't play anymore and he slowly taught himself to play again. kind of a moving story. >> jimmy: will you go without your teeth?

>> jimmy: hello there. still to come, music from walk the moon. yesterday, the new york film critics circle named our next guest best actor of the year. the film for which he received those accolades is called "mr. turner." it opens in new york and l.a. december 19th. please welcome timothy spall. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: how are you, timothy? congratulations on your award from the film critics in new york and all the many you've received, a lot of awards already for this film. >> i know. and they are all completely surprising. yesterday, i had no idea.
i came out, i was doing an interview. i came out and people started clapping and they said, you've -- you've won. i said, what? [ laughter ] best actor. i said, oh, that's absolutely charming. i certainly didn't fit an application form. but there you go. but it's very, very nice. >> jimmy: yeah i would imagine. >> genuinely surprised. >> jimmy: the movie hasn't come out yet. >> i don't think it is going to come out. >> jimmy: there's no movie at all. >> there is no movie. >> jimmy: you're just winning awards. that would be quite a trick. which was the first award that you won for this -- >> that was the cannes film festival. >> jimmy: i see. that's a big deal. >> yeah, well, that was very, very odd, because i went to cannes and you do all this stuff, you promote the movie and then they don't pay for you to stay around to find out what the result is. so, i went off and i went to my boat and i went to holland. and, because i knew they were
going to announce this thing and i was trying to ignore the fact that it was a competition. and then i had my hand up a tube full of grease on my boat -- that's not a metaphor. i was literally -- i was pretending i knew what i was doing with this greasy pole. >> jimmy: okay. >> i had no idea. i was just -- i had me hand up it pretending i wasn't in a competition two countries away. and then i got a phone call. and it was a guy who said, ah, timothy, you must come back to france -- that's a french accent, by the way -- [ laughter ] i said, why? i said, i've got my hand up a pipe here. he said, i cannot tell you, it is impossible. i said, well, i'm not -- [ laughter ] there's a car waiting for you.
a car -- i got to tell you. you come back, there might be something interesting for you to come here. so, i got -- i said, all right, get in the car, my wife grabbed some sandwiches, we jumped in the car. we went to the airport and ended up in the nice airport and the same french guy, he was french, said, okay, timothy, we must rush now, you have to get to the theater where you are going to be groomed and you must get in the car now and we will have the police -- and i said, what do you mean? he said, you have to hurry. i said, what's happening? he said, i can't tell you! [ laughter ] i said, all right. we go in the car, my wife and i and we were hurtling down the street. we had these two guys in the -- they were so checqic french pol. they looked like they were something from chanel. they were waving down all mhas
ratties. i said to my wife. i said, things are looking up here, love. anyway, cut to me sitting in the cinema and the next thing i know, the best actor at cannes this year is timothy spall. and i just sat there and there was a tap on my shoulder and it was my publicist, he said, that's you. i said, should i go and get it? he said, yeah, that's the idea. so, i went and got it. and then i was a little bit overcome and i started blubbering and crying and thanking everybody, you know, sort of thanking, nearly thanking the guy who refused to sell me a gerbil when i was 6. all of a sudden, you realize why people go bonkers at award
ceremonies. it's so shocking. >> jimmy: yeah. one minute, you're repairing a boat and the next -- >> you got your hand up there, up the tube with a toilet roll. next thing, you're walking around and you're the best actor at cannes. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: now, you have -- >> terribly, terribly kind of you. thank you. >> jimmy: you play a great artist in this film, jmw turner, who i was not familiar with beforehand. do you do the painting yourself in the movie? >> yeah, the director, mike lee, who i've worked with many, many times over the years, he said to me, he said, look, i'm going to make this film about turner, but don't get excited, we're not going to make it until about three years time. i haven't got the money. turner, i preseem, thumpresume, turner, the painter, not tina. you got that right. you got the part.
i said, i'd love to do it, of course. but how about if you learn how to paint for two years? so, i went went off and i learned how to paint for two years. but in the end, eventually what it was, it was so i could look like somebody who was born holding a paint brush. well, not literally, because it would be very uncomfortable for his mother. so, i did that. and -- because this character was this very contra districtry man, he was a genius and a very working class, rough, sort of almost animalistic guy that happened to be one of the most, most poetic landscape painters the world has ever seen. >> jimmy: are you still painting now that the film is complete? >> well, i gave it up because it was -- it was all a little bit terrifying, because the way this film director worked, mike lee, who has made many brilliant films, he asked you, you start
with nothing, you don't start with scripts and you, through the ocess, you rehearse for six months and you build this story up from nothing. you build a human being to try to fit the research. so, all this time i was actually rehearsing and improvising paintings. so, by the time i finished the film and done it, i couldn't bear to look at a brush. >> jimmy: no more paintings for you. >> i drew a little angel for my wife for her birthday. oh, now i've blown it. i just drew this stupid thing. >> jimmy: we'll bleep that out so you -- >> she won't be listening. she's got better things to do. >> jimmy: well, congratulations. most people knoll yw you from t "harry potter" movies around here. like those people right here. that's timothy spall, everybody. "mr. turner" opens in new york and l.a. on december 19th. we'll be right back with music
