12:36 am
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- jon hamm, larry king,
12:37 am
misty copeland, featuring the 8g band with fred armisen. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ and now, here he is, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: good evening! i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] are we well? excellent. excellent news. but there's also some slightly scary news today. for the second time in three days, the white house has gone into lockdown after somebody threw an object over the fence. and finally today president obama took away joe biden's frisbee. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
12:38 am
because once it's a pattern, joe, i have to take away the frisbee. [ laughter ] so rob ford -- you guys maybe have heard about rob ford. [ cheers and applause ] rob ford is in rehab and earlier today he said that he got in trouble for making phone calls to journalists from rehab. well, i'm not sure how to tell you this, rob ford, but you were all ready in trouble. [ laughter ] [ applause ] from the crack. [ laughter ] making phone calls is not the worst thing you've ever done. the situation in ukraine continues and now nato is disputing russian president vladimir putin's claims that he withdrew forces from the ukraine border. while putin is disputing claims that ukraine's border actually exists. all i see is russia, baby. [ laughter ]
12:39 am
russia, russia. that's russia, this russia. when you play risk, the board game risk, in russia -- it's really boring because it's just russia. [ laughter ] so whoever picks first -- they just win. [ applause ] this is bad news for people who love love, but there's trouble for kim and kanye. [ audience oohs ] tmz is reporting that kim kardashian and kanye west's wedding is being held up because of prenup negotiations. put it in legal terms, he is saying she's a gold digger. [ laughter and applause ] again, that's legal terms. that's legal terms. this is not cool. this is not cool. nintendo announced today that players in an upcoming life simulator game will not be allowed to engage in same sex relationships in the game. [ audience boos ]
12:40 am
exactly. said nintendfans, "what's sex?" [ laughter and applause ] this all sounds bad but, for clarity, what's sex? [ cheers and applause ] excellent boo, sir. i feel like there was one man who really went for the boo. [ laughter ] it was a full-throated, excellent boo. i'll be very upset later if i find out you're a professional booer -- [ laughter ] but you were wonderful. i'm not sure how to feel about this. burger king has announced that it will start offering a burger at breakfast menu at locations across the country. because you know, some people wake up sad. [ laughter ] oh, i hate the morning. i'm gonna have a burger. [ laughter ] this is cool. scientists have discovered
12:41 am
14 new species of dancing frogs in southern india. but when the scientists showed them to other people, the frogs hid their top hats and just sat there. [ laughter and applause ] before people showed up, it was incredible. [ laughter ] this is a little weird. a 67-year-old australian woman claims that she's been abducted by aliens more times than she can count. though in fairness, she can't count. that might explain it. this is amazing. a 90-year-old man who was arrested with over 200 pounds of cocaine in his truck was sentenced to three years in prison. so life. [ laughter ] life in prison. [ cheers and applause ] another way you could say it.
12:42 am
this is just bizarre. an icelandic chef has created several pates and desserts made of fly larva. so if you were looking for a reason to go to iceland, keep looking. [ laughter ] sony -- this is interesting. sony has invented a new type of cassette tape that could store 47 million songs. 47 million songs. they estimate that they'll be ready to demonstrate the new cassette for the public sometime in the year 2267 when it finishes rewinding. [ laughter ] [ applause ] it's still rewinding. i think that's gonna be like at least a hundred years. 47 million songs, or like three phish songs. [ laughter ] this is a sweet story. an elderly couple in queens got
12:43 am
married over the weekend after dating for 55 years. 55 years. apparently instead of saying, "i do," they just said, "i guess." we're not getting any younger. literally. no? give me one of those classic boos for that last joke. [ audience boos ] thank you. [ laughter ] target and doritos have paired up to market the walking taco, which is where you pour ground beef and cheese into a bag of crushed doritos before eating it out of the bag. [ audience ohs ] the walking taco was created when a man was taking out the garbage and thought, hey! [ laughter ] i could eat this. i could eat the garbage. [ applause ]
12:44 am
i'm an inventor. and finally, this sunday is mother's day, according to six voicemails from my mother. ladies and gentlemen, this is the 8g band! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: how are we, 8g band? is everyone well in the 8g band? how are you doing, fred? >> fred: great, great. so happy to be here. >> seth: it's so good to see you as well. i'm always so happy when you're here. >> fred: i love it. >> seth: yeah, it's great. when you're here -- i've known you for so long, and yet, when you're here i feel like i learn a new thing about you every day. >> fred: yeah. >> seth: it's great. and i won't say, for people at home, i do worry sometimes is they feel that maybe you're just making these things up off the top of your head. [ laughter ]
12:45 am
i don't think that. i just sometimes worry they think that. but what i wanted to ask you is -- are you indeed, have you indeed organized a parade for this weekend? >> fred: yes. [ laughter ] of course i have, yes. >> seth: great. >> fred: it's the freckles parade. [ laughter ] >> seth: the freckles parade? >> fred: yes. >> seth: okay. >> fred: people with freckles are going to have a parade. and they're just going to sort of march down 8th avenue here in new york. >> seth: okay. >> fred: and it's just for like just one short block. so they'll be sort of -- [ laughter ] >> seth: so what block is it? >> fred: it's between 42nd and 43rd on 8th avenue. >> seth: on 8th avenue. >> fred: so they'll start and then they'll turn around and come back again. [ laughter ] >> seth: right. because one block seems short. >> fred: yes, and also to gain momentum and everything. so there's gonna be music and everything, and it's just -- >> seth: i just -- because i'm basing this off parades i've seen. >> fred: yes. >> seth: okay, and again, i'm sure you've thought this
12:46 am
through. >> fred: i have. >> seth: it seems, as you get to the end of the first block, if you turn right back around you would then walk into the people that are coming right behind you. >> fred: right, there's that. but there's still, if you pivot around fast enough, you can make -- there's a steady flow, so that it just kind of becomes a parade. >> seth: now you can't have a lot of people participating in the parade, if you're only doing a block. >> fred: why is that? [ laughter ] >> seth: well, you can't have more than the amount of people that would fit in one block. >> fred: that's not true, because there are people waiting to get on to the parade. >> seth: i see. [ laughter ] >> fred: so that can still happen. i mean, there's people waiting to get on. they'll be happy and everything. and then they start just doing the march. and it's sort of 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.-ish. [ laughter ] >> seth: so this is a ten-hour affair. so, at any point -- which day, saturday or sunday? >> fred: it's saturday. >> seth: gotcha. so any point on saturday from 9:00 to 7:00, i can go walk on and say, "look at that block" and just see people with freckles, just a wall of people with freckles? >> fred: you should. it's a parade. [ laughter ]
12:47 am
>> seth: and again, i'm not saying that people need to organize parades based on who they are. you are not a man with freckles. >> fred: no. >> seth: what led you to think that there should be a freckle parade? >> fred: they're not honored enough. [ laughter ] you know, they're our history. there should be an honor to it. >> seth: they're history? >> fred: yeah, the history of people with freckles going all the way back, you know? >> seth: so they honor -- so the people dress up like sort of historic figures? >> fred: yes. it goes all the way back. even, you know, to the first caveman with freckles. [ laughter ] you know, people in the renaissance who had freckles. >> seth: i gotcha. different time periods. >> fred: and also today and the future -- of the people, you know, futuristic people with freckles. [ laughter ] >> seth: now it's making sense this is ten hours. because it seems like you're covering a lot of time. >> fred: yes, yes. >> seth: and so it's called the freckle parade. and the last thing, and i know you think these through. did you get the necessary permits? [ sighs ] okay. fred armisen, everyone. the freckle parade. [ cheers and applause ] 9:00 to 7:00 on saturday. fred, one thing that no one can doubt, that i'm very excited
12:48 am
about, i'm sure you're excited about it -- will forte is coming on our show next tuesday. one of our favorite people. [ cheers and applause ] will forte. a long time colleague of ours at "snl." and what's extra exciting is will is going to be the first person to participate in what we're calling here at "late night," "second chance theater." where we are going to stage a sketch that will wrote for "saturday night live" that we never aired. we didn't even take it to dress, to be honest. so this is the most that's gonna happen by far. [ cheers and applause ] it is a sketch called "jenjamin franklin." and i will take responsibility for saying that when he wrote it back in the day, i took the position that we probably shouldn't do it on the show. so i am kind of making up for that by giving him a chance to do it on this show. so we look forward to that. and will is truly -- we were sort of reminiscing about will, over the excitement of will coming on the show and telling our favorite will forte stories. one of which is tuesday nights at "snl," everybody stays very late to do their writing. some people stay overnight, and one of the things that happens around like 10:00 or 11:00 at night is people start ordering
12:49 am
delivery food because they're so hungry. and one night will was working with a writer named eric slovin -- a very funny comedian, a great writer. and eric had ordered food, and it hadn't come for like two hours. and eric was very grumpy, very upset about this. and he was sort of complaining about how irresponsible it is to not deliver food in a timely fashion, and how ultimately society crumbles when you can't count on delivery. [ laughter ] he was in a terrible mood. he was getting a headache from not having eaten. and finally, after two hours, an intern came in with the food, and went to hand it to eric. but will took it, opened the window and dropped it out. [ laughter ] of this building. of this giant building. now, we work on the 17th floor at "snl." at the 15th floor there was a ledge. like there's a ledge, so it didn't like fall down -- like, this story doesn't end with a passerby getting killed by delivery food, like an omelet. but that's the sort of thing that will would do at the show,
12:50 am
and why he was so beloved, and why we cannot wait for "second chance theater." so do not miss that on tuesday. "jenjamin franklin" finally sees the light of day. [ cheers and applause ] there is no jenjamin this evening, but we've got a great show for you tonight. the star of the new movie, "million-dollar arm," jon hamm is here. [ cheers and applause ] one of my all-time favorites, jon hamm. legendary broadcaster larry king will be stopping by.

[ laughter ] >> seth: i know i texted you this as soon as it happened. you had the greatest line reading on the line "okay" in the history -- for people who watch "mad men," you said "okay" to end an episode. that's not a spoiler because you don't know what it's referencing. >> no, no. >> seth: but it's the greatest read. did you know after you did it? you were like, "yeah." >> well -- [ laughter ] maybe. i don't know. i can always tell when i'm awesome. >> seth: right, right. [ laughter ] >> i did actually get another text from another person who is a famous tv critic that i know who said that, for him, the line reading of the year from me was when i was calling somebody and i said "no, i haven't even been drinking that much." [ laughter ] it was sort of fun for don draper to say. >> seth: so "million-dollar arm." this movie is based on a true story about a sports agent who tried to find cricket players in india to be major league
1:10 am
pitchers. >> essentially, yes. the big idea was that they're going to go to india, a country home to over 1.5 billion people. and that we figure that the odds are such that there's got to be two guys that can probably bring a fastball 90 plus miles an hour. and this guy went over there and made this sort of reality show, television show kind of thing and did it. found these two guys. one of whom plays for your adopted team, the pittsburgh pirates. >> seth: yeah. >> he's still in their organization. >> seth: that's so great. >> i'm doing a lot of press for the film now. i'm actually going to pittsburgh. i get to go on sunday to -- i'm actually in town for the freckle parade too on saturday. >> seth: oh, great.

[ laughter ] >> i naturally had a love for music and moved to it. like, i didn't want to sing. i didn't start singing when i heard mariah carey. i wasn't competing with that voice. >> seth: right. >> but i wanted to move. so, that's kind of how my passion and love for dance started. and i speak about it a lot in my memoir. that that was really an escape for me. i ended up not finding real dance classes until i was 13. it was at my boys and girls club. and that's where it all started, on a basketball court. >> seth: that's great. [ cheers and applause ] and now, i'm fascinated by -- because you are -- you know, you're both an artist but you're also a professional athlete. what is the day of a ballerina like? like, what is your -- because it's a very regimented schedule. >> it is. thank you for acknowledging that. because most don't. the hardest thing i think to hear as a ballerina is, "oh, that's so cute." and i'm like, "if you only knew what it took to look cute."
