[ cheers and applause ] >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight, christian slater. from "girlfriends' guide to divorce," actress and comedian, retta. music from grammy nominee sam hunt. the 8g band with matt sorum. ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers! [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening, welcome to "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] that is great to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. north korea announced last night that they successfully tested a miniaturized hydrogen bomb. the announcement was made by a miniaturized dictator. [ laughter ] to him it looked like a great big regular-sized bomb. that's right, north korea claims it has successfully tested a
exclusive footage of the test. [ laughter ] those jokes are going to be so much less funny if they're right. [ laughter ] donald trump said today that hillary clinton doesn't have the stamina to take on the country's enemies, which is a ridiculous thing to say about someone who has been running for president for 68 years. [ laughter ] [ applause ] on stamina, she's good. following the success of the netflix show "making a murderer," a new petition seeking a presidential pardon for wisconsin inmate, steve avery, has now reached 200,000 signatures. said president obama, "thanks a lot, i was still on on episode three. [ light laughter ] you got to put spoiler alert on your petition." donald trump's wife melania has said in a new interview that she has tried to stay out of the political spotlight because that is her husband's job. then she said, "is that how you
[ laughter ] melania also said that even though she remains quiet on the campaign trail, she knows everything that is going on and she thinks this is the best season of the "the apprentice," ever. [ laughter ] so many crazy contestants. [ applause ] the former campaign manager for dr. ben carson said today that it is becoming harder to see how donald trump will not win the republican nomination, while ben carson said it's becoming harder to see, period. [ laughter ] how many podiums are at this debate? bernie sanders told promise yesterday that if elected president, he would cap atm fees at $2.00. then he vowed to get banks to "stop calling it a pin number! [ laughter ] it's redundant.
number. it would be like a personal identification number pin! don't say it twice!" [ applause ] "american idol" begins its 15th and final season tonight, and no one is more excited then as its 15th and final viewer. [ laughter ] i better win this year. [ light laughter ] a spanish company has created a speaker that they say can help boost brain development by transmitting music to an unborn fetus through its mother's vagina, though i still prefer the old-fashioned method by singing into it directly. [ laughter ] i just called to say what's that? out of tune?
i just called josh romney, son of mitt romney, is reportedly considering of running for governor of utah in 2020, and i'd say he's got a pretty good shot considering over half of utah residents are romneys. [ light laughter ] and finally, women in oregon can now obtain birth control over the counter without a prescription, and so can men. [ laughter ] [ applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] he is one of the stars of what i consider one of the best new shows of this year, "mr. robot." three golden globe nominations, including best supporting actor for our guest christian slater, who is back on the show tonight. [ cheers and applause ] another friend of the show, she's one of the stars of bravo's "girlfriends guide to divorce," retta is back with us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] and fantastic music for you tonight.
grammy nominee. sam hunt is in the house. [ cheers and applause ] but before we get to all that good stuff, armed anti-government militia men have been occupying a federal building in oregon since saturday, and instead, they'll continue the standoff or as long it takes. for more on this it's time for a closer look. [ applause ] >> seth: now the incident began on saturday when an armed group broke off from a peaceful protest against the resentencing of two ranchers. dwight and steven hammond, who were convicted of arson. the ranchers served their time and were released from jail, but were later ordered to go back. >> they were convicted of arson, right, and a lower judge said you can serve a minimum amount of time. they did serve that. then the federal judge -- the ninth circuit, the ninth circuit is a very liberal appellate court. he said, "no, you have got to serve the five-year mandatory minimum on the arson -- >> seth: that is a bummer. imagine leaving prison and then getting the call that you have to go back in.
day i was released. i told the aryan brotherhood they can suck it. [ laughter ] those guys remember stuff like that. now, there's actually a conversation to be had here about the wisdom of mandatory minimums, but there is a lot more going on in this standoff then just the arrest of the ranchers. ammon bundy, the apparent leader of the group is the son of the famous nevada rancher, cliven bundy known for his 2014 standoff with federal authorities. they claim the federal government has no business owning so much land in western states. and today it was widely reported in the news media that ammon bundy had tweeted a defense of the armed standoff saying, quote, "we are doing the same thing as rosa parks did. we are standing up against bad laws which dehumanized and destroy our freedom. now, this turned out to be a cautionary tale for the news media because ammon bundy is not actually on twitter. that is a fake account, which is good. it was the only way you could compare what rosa parks did to using guns to take over federal property, is to confuse the bus
from the movie "speed." [ laughter ] who can forget the famous rosa parks quote, "pop quiz hot shot. there's a bomb on a bus and if it drops below 50 it blows up. this is rosa parks." but by far the weirdest development yet in this whole episode happened last night during a seemingly routine segment on msnbc. >> for the latest we are joined now by msnbc national reporter tony dokoupil live in princeton, oregon. >> seth: okay, now let's stop there for a second. as you see, okay, in the background, there is a blue tarp. now you might be thinking. what is under that tarp? supplies, some firewood? no, the answer is so much better than that. >> over my shoulder is a man under a blue tarp sitting in a rocking chair with a rifle over his lap. >> there is guy under that tarp there. >> there's a 55-year-old rancher from arizona named lavoy finicum.
there is a dude under a tarp sitting in a rocking chair holding a rifle. that sounds like a guest in a game of militia clue. [ laughter ] this keeps getting better, because lavoy finicum, the man under the tarp has a very good reason for sitting there. >> he says there is a warrant out for his arrest. we can't confirm that but that's what he said, and he does not plan to accept that warrant. he does not plan to come -- to go peacefully if the police come. >> seth: that's right, law man. lavoy finicum is under the tarp, and i ain't ever coming out. [ laughter ] >> we were here all day long and we didn't see any -- any provision shipment come in. >> seth: oh cleetus. you got to cut me some air holes. i just hot boxed myself. [ laughter ] clearly, clearly the militia's plan here is not super thought out. and on top of all that, most of the militia members aren't even morman. in fact ammon bundy apparently tried to recruit some local activists to join his cause but his appeal didn't quite work. bundy said, "we went to the
different people. they were not strong enough to make the stand." so what was your strategy, to go knocking on doors? "hey there, would you be interested in living in the woods with some heavily armed strangers? lavoy brought his tarp, so that will be fun." [ laughter ] so with the local community expressing a firm lack of interest in joining the have been issuing video messages and appeals on social media for militia sympathizers to cross the country to come and join their cause. although i'm not sure their pitch was all that compelling. >> we need you to get here and stand with us. look, this place is swarmed with media. so pretty much all the way up to the gate here is pretty packed. there is still plenty of parking right here on the outside. [ laughter ] >> seth: oh, there is. oh there is. that's good. because if your number one concern about driving across the country to join a potentially violent armed occupation of a federal government building, parking would be your number one concern.
because that's tyranny. now to their credit, several republican presidential candidates criticized the bundy militia, and called on them to leave peacefully. but former pennsylvania senator rick santorum made a comparison to another protest movement that has angered a lot of people. >> i certainly don't like the tactics they're using. but that isn't unlike the tactics that occupy wall street was using, and they were taking over land, city land and some government land and occupying that for quite some period of time. this is a situation that has to be handled just like -- unfortunately, they had to handle the occupy wall street. >> seth: you're comparing the armed militia to occupy wall street? the militia has guns. the only weapon occupy wall street ever had were drums. no one has ever yelled, "oh my god, he's got a drum." even when those drums have been in their most dangerous formation, a circle. this has been "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with christian slater.
umm... i guess... you'd make a pretty bride in that wedding gown. oh, it's a lab coat so... hey everyone, joe's getting married! bam bam ba bam. oh, i'm not. we take time for our cheese to mature in our crispy cheez-it grooves. degree gave women a motion-activated wristband to understand how much they move,... and created degree with motionsense. the world's first antiperspirant activated by movement, it has unique microcapsules that break with friction to release bursts of freshness all day. keeping you fresher with every move. motionsense. protection to keep you moving. degree. it won't let you down. mmm, this turkey is natural? yeah. it's too good to be true. not again. real estate never goes down. fact. we'll have the baby, and i'll have my band, and it'll just work. right. don't worry about it honey. all of our family photos are right here (banging sound) on the hard drive.

[ cheers and applause ] be sure to check out his new band kings of chaos. thank you so much for being here this week, matt, really appreciate it. >> thanks, seth. i love it, man. [ applause ] >> seth: i'm very excited. i'm very excited for our first guest tonight. he is nominated for a golden globe award for his performance in a really fantastic new show on usa called "mr. robot." please welcome back to the show christian slater. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: it is great having you back. >> thank you so much. >> seth: it's really exciting. >> thank you. >> seth: and you have the golden globes next weekend? this weekend?
yeah, friday. >> seth: this weekend. have you ever been to the golden globes? >> i've been, yeah i've been. i've been -- i've given a few golden globes before. >> seth: but first time nominated. >> first time nominated. >> seth: that's exciting. >> yeah, thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: do you expect that you'll go into it with this sort of it's just an honor to be nominated, or do you think the whole night you'll also really want to win it? [ laughter ] >> i expect to go and do it just being so grateful and happy to certainly be included in that list, and to be a part of the show is fantastic. >> seth: and it is really the only award show that's any fun to be at. >> i think so. >> seth: it really is. >> yeah, i mean ricky gervais is the host. >> seth: ricky gervias will be very exciting, in fact, i feel like he's going gold for it. >> so i pray to be insulted in some way. >> seth: yep. >> right? yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: and it's also -- i feel like you can tell from watching on tv, but until -- because i only went the first time a few years ago. the tables are so close together, when you get up to go to the bathroom -- [ grunting ] >> excuse me, excuse me. >> seth: but passing -- but doing, like, instead of strangers, it's like, oh,
oh, don cheadle. so it's really fun. >> right. >> seth: you end up going to the bathroom like 50 times just to meet people. >> that's right, just to say hello to people. absolutely. >> seth: so this show "mr. robot." congratulations, first of all, it's such a surprise hit. >> thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: such a great job by usa. >> yeah. >> seth: but this is a show that almost from the beginning -- from the very beginning, there were a lot of questions and the show created a lot of spoilers, a lot of ways to potentially spoil the show. >> correct. >> seth: have you ever been in a project that had this kind of spoiler mentality, and was it difficult for you to keep it from the people? >> i never actually, no. i've never been in a show that required me to sort of keep a lid on it and then when the episodes started to air, you know, people started coming up to me, and there were definitely some close call moments where people were very insistent, like, who is this guy? what are you doing? and who are you supposed to be in the show? >> seth: well if they were asking like that, they did not deserve to know. >> they were a little aggressive. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's way too aggressive. >> it was a little aggressive. so i would quickly run the other
>> seth: for people at home who have not seen the show, i'm put spoiler alert right here on the bottom of the screen. you can just mute it. i'm going to give you a second to mute it. when the spoiler alert goes off, you can turn the tv back on. and for people in the audience, you're just [ bleep ]. [ laughter ] >> if you haven't seen it, you're [ bleep ]. >> seth: over the course of the show, your character, we don't know who your character is, and what we find out is that you were the ghost of the lead actor, the lead character's father. >> seth: who's fantastic on his own. >> amazing guy. >> seth: did you know from the very beginning? because reading the pilot script, you wouldn't have known. >> you know, i had a sense when i read the pilot. there was such an air of mystery about the character. i was very intrigued. i remember just asking myself, and then i said to my agent, "do you think this guy is really there?" and he's like, "come on, the show is called 'mr. robot.' there's no way they would do that, that's totally crazy." then when i sat down with sam esmail, and he told me. i said, "look, what's the deal with this guy?" he said, "do you really want to know?"
and he told me. and he gave me a great answer, more than i actually even anticipated. >> seth: i'm glad we're also taping this because i do think another spoiler for the show would be people who say, "mr. robot," that sounds like a super fun show for kids. >> yeah. >> seth: and then they turn it on and they find out it's totally not. [ laughter ] >> no, no. yeah. >> seth: that would be even a worse spoiler. >> i mean that was the thing, like when i read -- when i saw the title of the pilot, and they gave me the script, i was like "mr. robot", oh god. they're going to open me up and i will have wires and nonsense like that, but then when i read the script and saw what the subject matter was, i was very excited. >> seth: obviously, one of the subject matters as well is like hacktivism, sort of computer security. have you become more paranoid about your own personal computer security? >> i think so. certainly. no. definitely updating -- it raised my level of awareness about those aspects of the internet, and you really do have to be very cautious and not use your pets' names as passwords. >> seth: i am a one-password man. >> oh, good.
>> what's your dog's name? [ laughter ] >> seth: exactly. i'm not giving that up. i'm going to at least make you go online and google that. >> okay, okay. >> seth: you also had a fantastic scene -- you shot a scene in times square. >> yeah. >> seth: and you actually -- and i can't even imagine -- i mean walking through times square, you have to psych yourself up for it. >> right. yeah. >> seth: doing a scene, i can't even imagine what that's like. how did you approach that? >> that was pretty intense. it was pretty exciting. i mean, the show opens sort of in times square, and then the last episode, we did film that pretty big scene there at night, so we did see some crazy, interesting characters at night. there was definitely a lot of screaming, a lot of intrigue to what we were doing. >> seth: a lot of them were just like pointing at you and like, "he's the ghost of the father!" [ laughter ] >> that's right, yes. >> seth: they're like, do you watch the show? and they're like, no. >> no, that's just what they were seeing. exactly, exactly. yeah, no, i read that in the script and got a little nervous about it, because you're right, i grew up in the city and the idea of shooting something in
you know? then to actually have to say lines and do this whole speech and do all these things so, what i ended up doing was every day for five days before we went to go shoot that scene, i just went to times square at different odd hours of the day and stood there in the middle of it and rehearsed that scene, and people would look at me and just think i was some lunatic talking to himself. [ laughter ] >> seth: that is the best place to do that. [ laughter ] >> yeah, i fit right in. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: you have to do so much in times square to not immediately be one-upped by the person next to you. >> exactly, exactly. >> seth: oh, my god, look, it's christian slater talking to himself. oh, look, elmo's shoving a lady. [ laughter ] >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: that's better. >> that's right. >> seth: i like that more. obviously a lot of people are fans of the show. i think one of the most interesting fans, edward snowden said he was a fan of the show. how did he -- did he say it via twitter? >> i believe he did say via
when he joined twitter recently. >> seth: yep. >> and this was definitely something that he let everybody know, that this show -- what he really appreciated about the show was the accuracy of it. that was certainly one of the challenges for me. when i got the pilot there was a lot of technical jargon in the script, and i wanted to make sure that i learned it all as well as i possibly could so i could impress everybody, and by the time we came to shooting the scene, all those terms i learned were outdated and all needed to be completely thrown out. >> seth: well i would say if you're doing a show about hacking, getting the stamp of approval from edward snowden it about the highest praise you can get. >> it's very nice. >> seth: it's very good. and you're probably on a couple watch lists now, just so you know. >> might be, yeah, how exciting. >> seth: this i want to ask you about, because this has actually been a very quentin tarantino themed week for us on the show. we've had a lot of cast members of "hateful eight" on. >> great movie, great movie. >> seth: it's great. "hateful eight", super fun. you were in "true romance",
didn't direct it, but he wrote the screenplay for "true romance." fantastic film. >> he's seen it. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] thank god he's here. >> seth: but, this is -- because i remember seeing that movie when i was in film school and it was such an inspiration to me. and you guys just did a live reading. you and patricia arquette came back to do a reading. were you at all hesitant to do a live reading like that? >> well, yeah, that was another thing that came through twitter, actually. jason reitman sent me a personal note, saying, "hey, look, can i ask you a question?" and he said that he does these readings of these scripts. and the only thing i was hesitant about was i just wanted to make sure that if we were going to do it that i would do it with patricia arquette as well. and she was fantastic. she actually showed up in full alabama wardrobe. >> seth: wow >> i mean, i don't know, she still had the costumes and showed up and did it, and it was like we hadn't missed a beat. >> seth: obviously, i knew there were fans of that film. but i didn't realize exactly
insane fans. >> well, they do like a thing at the safari hotel, which is where we shot some of the movie. i mean, they do it once a year, sort of a "true romance" fest is what it is. and everybody shows up in their hawaiian shirts and elvis costumes. and they all have a great time. >> seth: well, i feel like we're only a few years away from "mr. robot" fest. so i'd brace yourself for that as well. >> all right. [ laughter ] >> seth: congratualtions, again. it's such a success and it's great having you back on the show. >> congratulations to you too. >> seth: thank you so much. [ cheers and applause ] christian slater, everybody! we'll be right back with retta!

[ laughter ] >> i wasn't jamming, your dad was killing it. and i was in awe. >> seth: yes. and i want you to know that ever since you said this on television, my dad now feels that his dancing moves have been given this sort of perimeter of your love and he's sort of bragging it up everywhere he goes. >> he should. >> seth: okay, good. >> i mean i was entranced. my friend rosa ,who is here with me today. we were both like [ scream ] [ laughter ] >> seth: i will tell you, in my life, when you talk about like
end of a movie, this was like my "sixth sense" twist. i saw you first looking at someone on the dance floor, and i followed your eyes. [ laughter ] and when it ended at my father -- [ laughter ] that was like my, bruce willis has been dead the whole time. [ laughter ] >> yes, i was so -- you introduced me and i was like, that's the guy! and you're like, it's my dad. [ laughter ] >> seth: you probably thought he was some big time hollywood producer. >> i did, i was like, who let this guy in? because he was like a little bit crazy. >> seth: yeah. >> but owning it. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> he was owning it. >> seth: yeah, he thought that because i hosted the emmys that night, he had diplomatic immunity. [ laughter ] like he could do whatever he wanted. >> by the way, i'm obsessed with your mom as well. because i want to drink with your mom. i want to come back and drink with you and your mother because i think i can hang with hillary. >> seth: okay, because we -- a popular segment on our show, at least to my mother, day drinking with the meyers.

[ laughter ] >> seth: treat yourself. >> yeah. >> seth: treat yourself. >> i like the delayed -- he's like, no, no, i got it. [ laughter ] >> seth: how often a day do you hear it? >> if i don't hear it ten times a day, i haven't left my house. >> seth: wow. [ laughter ] >> and, you know, people tweet me all the time. nothing i post doesn't have the comment "treat yourself" in it. but i love that people think they're discovering new land with it. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> i'll post the new purse i just bought and they're like,
[ laughter ] yes, i do. i do. >> seth: i knew while it was happening. >> is that fact? my credit card knows it. >> seth: it's very great to see you in the new show "girlfriends' guide to divorce." is it a different character for you? is it a departure? >> it is, but i like it. i like to do something different. on my first day, there was a long speech, and i told the director, "i feel like she would kind of cry at the end of this." and he was like, "yeah, yeah, yeah, gimme that. gimme that." but then he kept -- he was so into it, he kept having me cry sooner and sooner, and there was a point where he wouldn't let me stop, he was like, cut. action. and i was like -- i'm bawling, shouldn't i start someplace else? no, it's fine, it's fine, it's fine. i like having something elsse to do. it's fun. >> seth: you are a great television actor, which i think is one of the reasons people feel a connection with you, and you often live tweet shows when you're watching them. it hips me to many shows.
about before they approached you to be in season two? >> i did. i'm a fan of lisa edelstein, and i remember when i heard that she had a new show. i was like, i'm going to watch the show, i was interested. and i had forgotten to set my dvr. so i knew i would miss the first two and i thought, i'll find it on dvd at some point. and then they asked me to do the show, so i said, can i get the first season? so i watched it, obsessed with it, so happy and then i was like, nervous because i was like, "what if i'm not as good as what the show is for me?" so i was nervous to do it, but excited because i love the show, but after the first episode, marti noxon, the creator, sent me an e-mail after it was edited. she said, "i watched it, you're so great, i'm so happy. thank you so much for doing the show." and i felt relief, and i said, "thank you for asking me to do the show." and she said that her and her 9-year-old daughter love "parks," and her daughter's favorite character is donna and they were upset when they found out the show was cancelled. and so her daughter said, "well, if she can't do that show, can
and that's how i got the job. [ audience aws ] >> seth: really? that's fantastic. >> a 9-year-old got me a job. [ cheers and applause ] get it where you can! get it where you can. >> seth: if that happened to me, i would call my agent and go, "you know who got me a job? a 9-year-old! so maybe step it up!" >> just a little bit. >> seth: step it up. >> oh, i changed my team. >> seth: oh, okay. good, good, good. [ laughter ] she's your team now, right? so tell me, because like i said, you are a lover of tv. what are you watching right now? what should we all be watching? >> so syfy has a new show called "the expanse." >> seth: "the expanse." >> no -- yes, "the expanse." i was on twitter and patton oswalt had tweeted something about saying that, "syfy, i hate that this new show is good. i don't have this much time in my life." >> seth: yeah. >> which, of course, made me say, please don't tell me there is another good show.
didn't have syfy channel, and then someone from syfy sent me a link to watch it online and now i'm stuck. >> seth: so you got to watch "the expanse" on syfy? >> "the expanse." i mean, i watch -- "the good wife" is still my jam. >> seth: okay. >> it's so good.
