. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with kathie lee gifford and hoda cotb. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> what is that? >> okay, what is going on? >> samba! >> samba! >> this is nubia and cookie. >> we have samba dancers because -- >> it's 100 days till rio. >> the summer games there rio de janeiro. that doesn't look so hard. >> that's nubia from casa brasilia. >> is it saturday?
>> come and try! >> how hard is it. >> side together, side you've got to stick your hips. there you go. slide, together, hey! >> that was fun! thank you! [ applause ] >> we want to thank you. you're going to be in times square today. we have the road to rio. they're going to be there from 2:00 to 7:00. >> you know how i'm going to get a lot of people to come out and see them? >> how? >> you want to see her from the side if you know what i mean. >> nubia does have side boobs. [ laughter ] >> you might want to take care of that, nubia. >> by the way, side boob is really in. >> no, underboob is the thing now. >> i don't better.
>> country music band perry is going to have another performance. they're going to perform in rio during the olympics. >> they really have the crowd rocking. they're singing their song the olympians love called "live forever" the official song of the olympics and they're going to have another one that you know a little later. going to be great. >> hilarious, we adore him, he's one of our favorite guests ever, ricky gervais who has so much to tell us about. he's been working like a feenie lately. >> he has a funny thing out on netflix called "special correspondents." and two men who have had illustrious careers in hollywood, treat williams and george hamilton. they'll tell you about that. i'm ready for some words of wisdom today. >> are you ready? the person who says it can not be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it.
>> love that. >> chinese proverb. >> oh, so we don't actually know who. confucius? >> that's a good one. so the prince tributes are, of course, continuing and so was this on -- where was this? >> this was on the "tonight show" with fallon and this was a really, really great rendition of a prince song and what you notice, a lot of people notice is maya rudolph and singer gretchen librum, they're in a prince cover band called princess and they sang backup for d'angelo on the "tonight show." it's an emotional version of one of prince's songs called "sometimes it snows in april." ♪ sometimes it snows in april, sometimes it feels so bad
♪ so bad, sometimes i wish life was purple ♪ and all good things they say never last ♪ >> the song went on and on. you can see it got more erosional as its went. now there's a lot of talk about the fact -- >> the fact that he didn't have a will. they don't know for sure. they're saying it hasn't been -- >> hasn't surfaced. >> his sister, atika nelson is saying he did not have a will. when you think about how prince was and how he was with music rights and how smart he was and all sort of business aspects it seems unusual he wouldn't have a will but at this point they say there isn't one. so now they're trying to figure out how his $300 million estate -- that's what they're estimating it is -- >> how does anybody know that? you know? i read what people make in the
newspapers, i read -- laughed so many times when they say what i make in the newspapers and you kind of go "you don't know me." you know? >> it's true. somehow, though, once you get over a couple million to me it's like all a loath. so it's $180 million, it's interesting. there's a law in minnesota that says siblings and half siblings, all siblings like that share equally in divvying up the estate. >> doesn't seem like they're fighting over anything. like they're acrimonious. >> you're right. we have a wine question and it's very important [ laughter ] we want you to get ready on your phones to -- >> listen to the question very carefully. >> here we go. are you ready? should single people always get an invite to a wedding with a plus one? >> do you think single people should get a plus one when they
go to a wedding? often -- and i've been to weddings before -- they're like "we can't wait to see you." you might have a boyfriend at the time but the boyfriend isn't invited. i say yes. a single person should get the plus one because it makes the evening much more enjoyable for me. >> so it's a selfish thing? >> i think sometimes single girls sort of get the short straw. you might have a boyfriend for years and they don't invite the person unless you're married. oh! ricky, we want you to be either team hoda or team klg. >> here's the question. do you think single people should always be granted a plus one when they go to a wedding? like the single girl who has a boyfriend. >> no. because it makes it a nightmare for one night, it would be awful. you can't just -- no. it's got to be long term or -- no. >> what are you saying? [ laughter ] >> it's my -- if my mate
suddenly just picks up some -- no. >> but if it's a relationship. >> that's fine. that's fine. >> like jane you wouldn't leave at home. >> no, but we're a long-term relationship. if you've got loads of mates you can't just have them all plus one anyone. >> all right, see? ricky gervais is team klg and i'll tell you why? first of all, weddings are unbelievable expensive. >> yeah! >> not everybody can afford just everybody bring somebody. guests of guests are not allowed to bring guests, i had a pillow that said that. you invite the people you want for your special day. >> here's an example. >> i agree, yeah. >> savannah guthrie got married. i'm dating joel. savannah says to me "hoda --" and i hadn't been dating him for a long time but i knew it was serious. she said "please bring joel." >> but she's inviting him. >> yeah, she's not leaving it up to you. >> i said -- >> wait a minute, what did you say, ricky? >> it's different if the person
is named. i think just bringing in one willy-nilly -- >> well, that's different. not bringing a hookup -- >> she's done that, too, believe me. >> otherwise they just bring someone on the way. [ laughter ] >> someone they met along the way. [ laughter ] . also it's an opportunity to meet other single people that will be there without a date, a one. who wants to be a one? >> but minus the hookup. if someone has a boyfriend or girlfrie girlfriend, do you think they should be able to bring them? >> i don't want anyone coming. it's already too stressful. that's why we haven't got married. >> and you've been tog ether how long? ands where the lovely lady? >> she's just out there. >> how long have you been together? >> 30 years. >> but you still call her your girlfriend, isn't that weird? >> what is she? >> your lover. >> my wife, really, i suppose. yeah, not officially. again, we don't want to get married because we don't want our families to meet. [ laughter ]
>> i love it when you take pictures, jane with her friends. >> yeah. >> i love it. >> i cannot wait. ricky has this really fun -- >> no, no, no. we're going to bring you out. >> this is going out on air? really? >> so far, hoda is winning. so far, hoda -- ricky, we're getting beat a little bit. >> you know who is voting? the single girls who went to weddings and feel like, well, i have a boyfriend. >> opportunity to find the man of your dreams. >> if you had to go alone to a wedding -- >> i have gone alone. >> you don't like it. >> don't tell me if i didn't like it. >> you know you don't like it. >> i don't like going anywhere alone. >> it's all about them. me, me, me. >> i know. >> i'm with you. >> whatever. it's not going to last anyway. let's eat. >> one out of two, right? >> ricky. >> that's it. #team hoda. >> help yourself to the hoda drink, if you'd like. >> don't drink it.
the wine is not good. that's not the drink you want. >> i'm kidding. i was kidding, jerry. let's go to the next topic, shall we? >> i don't know i want to leave ricky gervais for prince harry. >> prince harry was asked the million dollar question when he was at a school from a young boy. he asked the prince, are you ever going to be king? this is how prince harry answered. >> that's the question everyone wants wanted, let's be honest. you'll be glad to know, probably not. >> he's so charming. have you ever met him, ricky? >> yeah, i met him and william. him loads of times. he's really nice, normal, funny. a normal guy. he actually came to one of my gigs a few times, actually. he's been to three or four of my gigs. >> does he bring a one? >> he did the first time. then it was him and a few lads and about nine security guards with guns. >> yeah. what about william?
>> he's very -- he's nice, but he's very quiet. i think he's got the weight of, you know, the monarchy on his shoulders. harry can be normal. >> harry is a naughty boy, isn't he? >> like i know. >> okey-dokey. >> we have a question for you. look at this picture and we want you to let us know who you think this actor is. >> i know who that is. i already saw it. yup, i know exactly who it is. >> was it -- >> neil patrick harris. >> i thought it was matthew mcconaughey. >> that is frightening. that is frightening. it's like "walking dead." >> wow. >> playing count olaf in the netflix series based on -- i can't say the name. >> lemony snicket. >> can ricky come out? >> we have to go to commercial first. >> remember how they make us do
that? >> yes. >> quick shoutout to the guys from bravo's "million dollar listing." if you're in the market to buy, sell or renovate and need help, go to klg and hoda.com and click the connect button. >> provide a picture so you can know if we're going to use you or not. not of you, of your house. >> i was going to say, that's discrimination. >> we have a shout out. >> fathom events is releasing "come to the garden" on may 3rd, 7:00 local time. it's from my friend, jennifer wilder morgan, who is -- she was here as a guest. she's written a wonderful book, "come to the garden." i did the audio version. she's a one-woman, go-to movie of her own. we've been waiting patiently for the hilarious man. >> and outrageous. >> all those things. it's why we love him. >> adore him. >> ricky gervais after this. which one's yours?

he is considered -- in fact, we know it -- one of the funniest people on the earth which doesn't say much for our planet. talking about our good friend ricky gervais. >> he's not only written and directed the new netflix film special "correspondents" but he stars in it. he plays an audio engineer at a new york radio station who's sent along with a hot shot reporter played by eric bana to cover a foreign coup. >> but when ricky throws away their passports -- because he's not the sharpest tack -- the guys are stuck in new york and forced to file their reports from an attic. with the help of local cafe owners. take a look. >> imagine you're in your village. what might you shout? >> miguel! uncle miguel. >> why would you shout uncle miguel? >> because he's almost deaf. >> be scared! tell us about your children. >>. [ speaking spanish ]
>> what does that mean? >> may baby is getting fat. >> why would you say that? >> you said something about children and i love fat babies, that means they're eating well. >> that's true. >> i know. i like fat babies. [ laughter ] >> so we're meant to cover a war and we suddenly realize we can fake it, we can't get there but it's audio so we fake it and hide out in a spanish restaurant with two friends who are not very clever. [ laughter ] but they're very sweet and they help me fake the war report. >> how about that studly eric bana. >> he's great. he's amazing. see, i cast him because i thought he was this cool action hero, i didn't know he had a background in comedy. he's an idiot like me. we had great fun. he's really funny and really normal. yeah, we had some great fun. >> where did this idea come from? this whole concept? >> well, the original idea is an old french movie which i changed but the central idea of, you
know, faking a war. i mean, it's -- it happens, it really happens. >> it does happen. >> and i just take it too far. >> knowing you. now, of the three things you're doing, what is the process you love the most? do you like the quiet, the solitude -- >> coming up with the idea. that's the most exciting thing. and usually when you're relaxing like on a plane when a phone isn't ringing or going for a jog, i think of an idea and i think is that a standup routine? is it an idea for a show? a scene from a film? i love the whole -- >> creative process. >> exactly, yeah. >> but how do you turn that off? if you and jane -- we love jane. if you and jane were going go for a romantic getaway, you've been working like a maniac the last couple months. where is it that ricky and jane go? >> we've got a little place in the country that we go to every weekend and we play tennis and eat too much.
turn off. >> yeah. >> you don't need to go far. >> no. and also when you say -- i am probably a workaholic but i'm a workaholic between the hours of 10:00 and 4:00. >> very intense. >> exactly. i'm like a toddler. i work hard then i have to sleep. >> then you need a nappy. >> and every night i'm on the couch with jane and the cat and a bottle of wine. you can identify with that [ laughter ] >> i've got a war shed but let's not go there. and that's it. i recharge everyday. >> when you were casting this, was it true you ended up casting one of the guys on twitter? did you tweet someone and say "would you be in this?" >> kevin pollock. i thought he was great, i saw him in "a few good men" and i thought we needed a serious sort of angry sort of boss like almost a straight man and apparently he was playing poker and he got a dm and he said yes. >> without reading it.
>> is that how it is? >> who would say no to you? >> i don't know. lots i imagine. they probably make excuses, you never know. they say "oh, i'd love to do it but --" >> what if you wanted to hire an actor or actress that you had fun with at the golden globes. >> well, i did. i called up johnny depp after i teased him and said "i've got a part for you in my new show" and he did it. >> everybody realized -- >> they won't work. >> what? >> they're not going to turn down work, are they? >> johnny depp could, right? >> well, he could but i don't know -- i beg. >> do you ever play a role where you don't use -- you don't have your britishing a tent? >> no. i can't be bothered with all that. >> what do you mean? >> well, derek didn't really speak -- >> well, yeah, he had an english accent but i usually change it. whatever film i say make sure he's english, i'm not doing accents. >> you're no meryl streep. >> no wigs, just this is what

all right, these are two of hollywood's most distinguished stars who between them have more than 230 film and tv credits to their name. >> you must be exhausted. >> we are talking about treat williams and george hamilton. now they're bringing that star power to the bring screen in the new movie "the congressmen."
treat plays congressman charlie winship who begins to question his patriotism as his life unravels. >> george plays the conniving lobbyist who tries to undermine charlie and charm him into a deal to keep him from visiting some of his constituents. >> another stretch. [ laughter ] >> the lobstermen's benevolent association. there's 4,000 of them along the maine coast. they here in the right. >> how much are they paying you? >> oh, almost a charity thing. $25,000 a month. >> you need to go. >> charlie, why don't you come out to burning tree with me. hell, you can't stay here forever. everybody loves you, charlie, you could bill a million dollars a month once you get through the revolving door. >> does treat have any lines in this movie? [ laughter ] >> it's all george all the time. >> all george all the time. >> so smarmy. >> you should see the rest of the scene, it gets worse.
>> this is a great idea and so timely for this movie, right? >> we didn't mean it to be. we made it three years ago almost and it just so happens it just comes out now. >> we keep them on the side. i put down a good picture 20 years ago, it will be out soon. >> we shelve them. >> so there's a point where you're sitting in the congressional chamber, you have your feet up on the desk and everyone else is pledging allegiance except you. >> yes. and i'm filmed. >> and you're filmed like that with your feet up. >> and everything goes haywire from there. >> it gets worse and worse. i go to see my wife, we're getting divorced, jane atkinson plays my wife. and the next morning i'm asked if i disrespected the pledge and i start talking about who wrote it, a guy named bellamy. and the pledge of allegiance from the time he wrote it in the 1880s till 1940 was this. it was the nazi salute and it was only ended when the war started with hitler. so i demonstrate that and the news channel makes a soundbite -- >> oh!
>> and my life spirals out of control. >> news people don't do that! >> no, never. [ laughter ] >> this is off the subject for a second but you two have the best heads of hair in the entire business. now we'll get back -- >> you don't see the lace here, do you? [ laughter ] >> so you shot in on a little island off of maine that's very inaccessible, beautiful, i'm sure. >> it is. >> but what was it like spending -- was it three and a half weeks? >> it was incredibly painful to be with george. >> the truth is i work like a swat team. i come in and do my job and they drop me in and by the end of the day i was gone. i actually did the scene that you saw -- and it goes on -- and then i did a scene outside and then i did another scene all the same day, but he was off with another team of actors and they just shot me with the camera and said hold this, take a pick chush -- >> so you really were just one day? >> i was there one day and i did it all in one day. >> i thought you were joking earlier. >> the good news is george and i had done the woody allen film "hollywood ending" together.
i couldn't wait to get him there. he's the funniest, most charming men. who else has been a movie star for 60 years. name one but george. >> warren beatty. >> at least he thinks so. [ laughter ] >> all right, just two. he's the better looking one. >> well, "the congressman" open this is friday. >> in select theaters in new york and washington, d.c. >> they'll love it. >> treat, you'll talk to us about a future project you have cooking on the back burner. >> i will indeed. "man of la man that" with wayne colennta who choreographed "wicked". >> i couldn't believe you singing in the hallway. >> i know. [ laughter ] it was a big surprise to everybody. >> we'll be back with more in a moment. >> i didn't know where to go with that. [ laughter ]
update. >> we don't need it! more people agree with me and ricky gervais 299 to 167. >> where are my single girls. >> no to plus one. >> where are my single girls throughout? >> you're discriminating against single men. >> and my single men, too. tomorrow a performance by country crooner, our friend vince gill. >> love him. plus a mother's day fashion
