tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC April 6, 2016 11:35pm-12:37am EDT

with cleto and the cletones! and now, stay put, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming. [ cheers and applause ] looking around. i don't know how this group got through the secret service, but i'm glad you did. we have a senator. maybe even future president of the united states in the house. bernie sanders is here. [ cheers and applause ] bernie sanders has ignited a lot of passion, primarily among
and the incredible thing is he did it without posting even a single nude selfie. [ laughter ] bernie can get very fired up. i watch him on these debates. but remember, if it seems like he's yelling at you, it's because he is yelling at you and you deserve it. [ laughter ] my favorite part about watching bernie in debates is how he's always got his finger up like he's trying to flag down a waiter to get the check. it's like -- [ laughter ] bernie was on the ballot in three states today. there was a primary in arizona and caucuses in idaho and utah. donald trump was behind in the polls in utah. utah is not particularly friendly territory for donald trump because most of the voters there are sober. [ laughter ] it's a largely mormon state. but according to -- according to a new poll, 60% of republicans say they're embarrassed by their candidates in the primary so far. that's -- that means almost 40% of republicans aren't embarrassed by their candidates in the primary so far. [ laughter ]
when he's asked why he thinks so many of his fellow republicans are embarrassed, donald trump said, what's embarrassed? what is it? [ laughter ] some people who do not support donald trump are taking a more displeasure like this driver in wilmington, north carolina. [ cheers and applause ] usually the voters who veer so far to the right like donald so obviously, jeb is still a little bit upset. [ laughter ] donald trump sat down for an interview with cnn yesterday where he took on a wide range of topics including hillary clinton. >> she is -- doesn't know me. she doesn't know my policy. she doesn't know what i'm going to be doing. and she certainly doesn't know what i'm going to be saying today at 5:00. >> i think that makes two of you. [ laughter ] right? no way he knows what he's going
but i will say this, for all the negative stuff donald trump puts out there, for all the insults and threats and general nastiness, he also spreads a lot of love. in fact, he spread so much love we boiled it down and pieced it together to make this powerful donald trump love bomb. >> i love this country. >> i love the country. >> i love the old days. >> i love free trade. >> i love my company. >> i love building buildings. >> i love what i'm doing. >> i love hopping around. >> i love the way they twist and turn. >> i love nascar. >> i love you potatoes. >> we love people that faint. >> i love that sign. >> i love to bring my people up. >> i love helping people. >> i love howie kurtz. >> i love sheriff joe. >> i love my father. >> i love my kids. >> i love these people. >> i love tough people. >> i love my protesters. >> i love this guy over here. >> i love women. they love me. and i love them. >> i love my life. >> i love the military. >> i love great generals. >> i love the vets. >> i love the wounded warriors. >> i love china. china's great. >> i love mexico. >> i love the mexican people. >> i love the hispanics. >> i love the saudis. >> i love israel. >> i love the evangelicals. >> i love the mormons. >> i love south carolina. >> i love iowa. >> i love nashville. >> i love you, ohio.
>> i love nevada. >> i love new hampshire. >> i love florida. >> i love georgia. >> i do love virginia. >> i love you people. >> i love you. >> i love you. >> i love you. >> i love you. >> i love you. >> i love you. >> i love you all. >> i love you. >> i love you! i love you. >> i love the poorly educated. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: the first thing you have to learn is to love yourself, and clearly he does. meanwhile, one of donald trump's most high-profile supporters, former alaska governor sarah palin, is working on a new gig. sarah palin, this came out today, is planning to host a new reality courtroom show. she would be the judge. the show doesn't have a title yet but they're thinking about calling it "terrible idea." [ laughter ] unlike judge joe brown or judge judy, sarah palin does not have a law degree. but she's never been one to let a lack of qualification for a job slow her down. [ laughter ] shouldn't she have to wait for the next president to appoint a
[ laughter ] it's a strange thing. people wanting to run the country are now hosting reality shows and people hosting reality shows now want to run the country. we live in a very confusing time. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] sometimes i'll forget to put my shoes on. meanwhile, speaking of reality tv judges, last night on abc we had the premiere of "dancing with the stars," a new season. the lowest score of the night went to geraldo rivera, which was a shocker. [ laughter ] i thought he'd be great. but one of the high scores went to a model named nyle dimarco, who happens to be deaf. [ whooping ] he wouldn't hear that screaming. [ laughter ] not only can't he hear the music, he can't hear the sound vibrations which is how a lot of deaf people listen to music. he has to follow along and do what his partner does. which is incredible on its own and even more incredible when you factor in his very enthusiastic sign language interpreter. tear. >> at first i was like, hot,
and then i was like, wow. you're actually in the pocket. you didn't just have great rhythm. you were in the pocket of the rhythm. you brought the rhythm -- [ applause ] >> jimmy: really embellishing. next season that interpreter is going to be one of the dancing stars. [ laughter ] he's already more famous than half the other people on the show. it's interesting how famous people react when their fame starts to wane. you've got "dancing with the stars." a lot of celebrities when they get older will do these ads you see on the cable news channels. i saw cindy williams, who played shirley on "laverne & shirley" doing an ad for some kind of home nursing service. which is just weird. chuck woolery does the ads for the willow curve. william devane i think tells people to buy gold. maybe i watch too much cable news in the daytime. [ laughter ] i was wondering what i'm going to do when i become a very handsome old man with a lot of plastic surgery. and so i traveled to the future to watch television.
people still do. and i happened upon this commercial which was able to capture on dvr. here it is. future me with a pitch for future you. >> the following is a paid advertisement for first nationwide providence. >> it's not like the old days, is it? things just seem to move a little bit faster these days. we get older and they get younger. hi. i'm disgraced former talk show host jimmy kimmel. [ laughter ] and if you're looking for peace of mind, it's time to call first nationwide providence. first nationwide providence is for people like you and me. what do they do? i have absolutely no idea. [ laughter ] but i don't need to. and neither do you. should you give them your money? yes. how much? all of it probably. what will they do with it? there's no way of knowing. but the name sounds important and comforting and, well, that's
first nationwide providence. it's a low price to pay for whatever the hell it is they do. >> first nationwide providence is a pyramid scheme. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we're going to be rich. we have to take a break. when we come back, my pal guillermo and i help some children with their homework. so stick around. we'll be right back.
what's it gonna be? an oven-baked digiorno? or waiting for delivery? did you have that beard when we ordered? a hot, fresh-baked crust? or? did we order extra soggy? don't settle for delivery. rise to the occasion. it's not delivery. it's digiorno. who's the genius who puts a girl in heels on a subway grate? miss monroe, eat a snickers. why? you get a little cranky when you're hungry. better? much better.
can a toothpaste do everything well? this clean was like pow! it added this other level of clean to it. it just kinda like...wiped everything clean. 6x cleaning my teeth are glowing. they are so white. 6x whitening i actually really like the 2 steps. step 1, cleans step 2, whitens. every time i use this together, it felt like... ...leaving the dentist office. crest hd. 6x cleaning, 6x whitening i would switch to crest hd over what i was using before. t-mobile does data differently. while the other guys gouge you for every bit of data you use... ...now, t-mobile lets you stream all the video and music that you want from your favorite services...
they said they will not hear the case, which means pot will continue to be sold in colorado. that doesn't surprise me. the supreme court, they're a bunch of stoners. [ laughter ] who else wears a robe in the middle of the day? [ laughter ] clarence thomas is so high he's only spoken once in like ten years. [ laughter ] the lawsuit was -- actually, the lawsuit was filed by the other states. oklahoma and nebraska filed the suit. which is interesting to me because i had no idea that oklahoma and nebraska were a couple of total narcs. [ laughter ] it's like your little brother trying to get you in trouble for not taking him to the party. but they claim that their marijuana is making its way across the border from colorado into their states. which let's put the map up. look at this. colorado barely, barely has a border with oklahoma. it's like your neighbor two blocks away complaining you're having a party that's too loud. and you'd think nebraska would support marijuana. they grow corn. it's the main ingredient in
some people don't think. [ cheers and applause ] anyone who knows me knows that i am very passionate when it comes to learning. in fact, in addition to my hosting duties on this show guillermo and i have co-hosted an educational program on a local access channel. how long have we been doing this now? >> for 40 years. >> jimmy: 40 years we've been doing this. [ laughter ] so grab your number 2 pencils. 40 years? [ laughter ] we have been helping children do their homework since we were children doing our homework. but here it is, tonight's edition of "the homework helper guys." and geography mathematics and anatomy. physics and biology. if you want to get wise call the homework helper guys >> jimmy: good afternoon and welcome to the "homework helper guys." we are the homework helper guys. i'm mr. kimmel. this is mr. guillermo. we're here to help you with your
and let's go to our video chat now. where we have two young men. hello there. what are your names? >> brennan and liam. >> i'm brennan and this is liam. >> jimmy: brennan and liam. and you're brothers? >> we're brothers. >> jimmy: and you're dressed the same i see. >> yep. >> jimmy: only one of you wears glasses. >> yeah. i wear glasses because my sight's worse. >> jimmy: your eyesight is worse. so you are the defective of the two brothers. >> yep. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: okay, very good. what can we help you with today? >> my subject is ancient egypt. and a tall four-sided pillar that is pointed at the top, unscramble these letters. the letters are -- >> jimmy: hold on. we've got to unscramble letters. what are they?
>> jimmy: unscramble the letters. well, i'll tell you something right now. this is something guillermo says a lot. >> jimmy: es okay." [ laughter ] guillermo, you came in late to work today, what did you say? >> es okay. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's that, i guess. this is lib. or maybe this is bill if we switch it around. okay. bill. let's say bill. bill rear-ended your car but there was no damage. what would you say? >> bill, es ok. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: okay? es ok? >> yeah. >> jimmy: is that it? is that all your homework? is it done now? >> that looks like it. >> jimmy: it looks like it. i'm going to leave you today with a little joke. and the joke is this. >> es ok. >> jimmy: no, that's not the joke. the joke is why did the boy eat his homework?
a piece of cake. good one, right? all right. go to sleep. if you want to get wise, call the homework helper guys >> jimmy: who says learning isn't fun? tonight on the show we have music from granger smith. tom hiddleston is here. and we'll be right back with senator bernie sanders. [ cheers and applause ] limited data from at&t means you can stream it all. like that anthony michael hall movie where he fights with the girl. the one where he gets rejected by the girl. even stream the one where he creates the girl. with unlimited data, you can stream all the anthony michael hall movies you want. i wonder what he's up to these days maybe he's shopping in an at&t store? get unlimited data and your fourth line free when you have at&t wireless and directv.
with a revitalizing iced tea from dunkin' donuts. sip in a refreshing iced tea, iced green tea, or iced tea lemonade today. america runs on dunkin'. [ grinding metal ] whoa, that doesn't look good. no, not you. ordinary fuels can clog your engine with dirt. it's like lugging this around... it's dragging down your fuel economy. [ breaking glass ] but over time, using new and improved bp gasoline with invigorate helps clean up that dirt, like hundreds of scrubbing brushes. [ scrubbing bristles ] so that means a cleaner engine, which helps you get more miles per tank. i'll be here if you need me. new bp gasoline with invigorate...
make today smile with 6 dunkin' donuts for $4.49, powdered with sugar, layered with frosting, filled with jelly, or topped with sprinkles. share some smiles with 6 donuts for $4.49 today. america runs on dunkin'. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: welcome back to the show. tonight from the new movie "i saw the light" tom hiddleston is here with us. and then this is his new album. it's called "remington." granger smith. [ applause ] tomorrow night kristen bell, jon bernthal and music from locash. and on thursday,
us. so please join us. [ cheers and applause ] you know, it used to be when someone talked about feeling the burn they needed a shot of but our first guest has turned it into a rallying cry for millions of young americans. run for president of the united states. please welcome senator bernie sanders. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: very good to have you here. >> great to be with you. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: well, look at that. [ cheers and applause ] have you gotten acclimated to coming to l.a. where a year ago nobody knew who you were and now teenagers and young people are cheering you? >> it is a bit of a shock. yes, it is. but it's a good shock. i'll take it. >> jimmy: you have secret
>> yeah. >> jimmy: and all the top candidates do. tonight you were out walking around on hollywood boulevard just talking to people. and you did that when we were in brooklyn together last time too. >> exactly. i love doing that. that's what i've done my whole life. >> jimmy: does the secret service hate when you do that? >> yes. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, they don't like it. >> but, you know. it brings you into the real world and kind of breaks through the isolation. there are a lot of beautiful people out there. it's just nice to say hello. >> jimmy: i have to admit to you, when you were on our show brooklyn, i thought, this is a very smart guy. he has some very interesting ideas. he obviously loves his country. but there's no way we'll still be seeing him in march. and yet here you are. [ cheers and applause ] i mean, i don't -- it might be too simple a question to say are you surprised? but are you surprised by this? >> yes and no. i thought the message that we had, that there's something wrong with the middle class in
for low wages. we have so much poverty and almost all new income and wealth is going to the top 1%. i did know that was a message that would resonate. the other message, it spreads from conservatives to progressives. people are really angry about a corrupt campaign finance system that allows very, very wealthy people to spend unlimited sums of money to buy elections. people don't think that's what democracy of this country is supposed to be about. [ applause ] >> jimmy: obviously, there was a terror attack in brussels today, which was a horrible thing. and in times when we are under attack or our allies are under attack, it seems that americans gravitate toward the candidate who talks the toughest. in this case i think donald trump, after the attacks in paris his popularity shot up. why do you think that is? >> i think people get afraid. and for good reasons. isis is a disgusting, barbaric organization.
paris, what they've done in brussels. people are afraid of an attack in the united states. but i think what we have to understand is we're not going to undermine the constitution of the united states of america in order to effectively destroy isis. we can do that. so our goal in this issue is to destroy isis in coalition with muslim nations on the ground, with the support of the united states and other major powers. i think we can do that. we are making some progress. we have much more to do. and secondly, of course, we have to protect our own nation. and that means better intelligence sharing. making sure that we stop young people from becoming terrorists through social media, et cetera. and we're working on that. but at the end of the day we cannot allow the trumps of the world to use these incidents to attack all of the muslim people in the world. that is unfair -- [ cheers and applause ]
somebody is a muslim they're a terrorist, that is an outrageous statement. equally so when he talks about mexicans coming over the borders as rapists or criminals. that is not what this country is about. we don't need in my view a candidate for president hurling these types of insults. >> jimmy: i will say that when i think about donald trump and i think about you i can imagine him dropping a bomb on a house that might contain innocent people. i cannot imagine you doing that. would you be prepared to do that or -- >> well, i hope nobody ever drops a bomb on a house -- >> jimmy: but of course when you're fighting terrorism that happens. >> it does. and obviously, if i were elected president of the united states i would use the military forces of our country in an effective and appropriate way. and that's what a president does. so if the question is -- you know, i think as somebody who voted against the war in iraq i think we have to be careful about how we use military force
the unintended consequence. you know, saddam hussein was a terrible dictator but i kind of had the feeling, get rid of him you create a political vacuum, bad things happen. but there are times when you do have to use force, and i certainly would be prepared to do that. >> jimmy: guillermo, you wanted to clap? guillermo was about to clap. there you go. you had three contests tonight -- arizona, idaho, and utah. >> yeah. >> jimmy: do you feel like -- we don't know what the results are at this time. do you feel optimistic about winning any of those states? >> oh, yeah. i do. you never can tell. and i'm not much into speculation. but we were in salt lake city. and remember, utah's one of the more conservative states in the country. we had 14,000 people out at a rally in salt lake city. there was a poll that just came out in utah. for the first time in 50 years -- this is a state that almost never votes for a democratic candidate for president. we were beating donald trump by 10 points in utah. [ cheers and applause ]
who tells you -- who keeps you up to date on the election cetera? do you watch those on the cable news just like the rest of us? >> sometimes depending on the state there are exit polls. we often have access to them. but like everybody else, if it's a close election we're watching the television at 1:00 in the >> jimmy: do you have cable at home? >> yeah. >> jimmy: i don't imagine you frivolously watching television. i imagine you're a relatively serious guy. if you are elected president, will we still have like the easter egg roll? would there be -- would we still pardon the turkey on thanksgiving? >> only if all of the children are very, very serious about that roll. >> jimmy: i see. [ laughter ] >> no frivolity in my presidency. it's all work, no pleasure. [ applause ] >> jimmy: you and mrs. clinton, hillary clinton, do you ever speak privately? do you have private time together or phone calls? >> yeah, occasionally. >> jimmy: is that to congratulate each other on winning a state or do you
>> we've often -- we've debated a number of times and before the debate we can sit down and chat. >> jimmy: her unfavorability numbers, they say they're historic, and this is a cnn/"new york times" poll. same with donald trump. his unfavorability is higher. do you feel like you're contributing to that? >> no, i don't. i think what i have tried to do in this campaign is focus on the real issues impacting the american people. and that is something that sometimes is very hard to do through the media because the media is not necessarily interested. >> jimmy: we like the fun stuff. >> that's right. or the dramatic stuff. >> jimmy: the clowns. >> that's right. but we have been very careful about not attacking secretary clinton in any kind of a personal way. other people do that. we have not. we focus on the issues. but i think our success is that we are touching a nerve with the american people. whether it is people's understanding that we have to act boldly in climate change -- give you another example. we are talking now about making public colleges and universities tuition-free and lowering
[ cheers and applause ] and everybody knows, you know, we tell the young people, go out and get an education. then they end up with 30, 50, 100 thousand dollars in debt. we need the best educated workforce in the world. why are we punishing kids for doing what they should be doing? [ applause ] and that's resonating. and i'll tell you the other thing. there's a big difference between the secretary and myself. is we raise money in a very unusual way for modern politics. we get it from the middle class and working class of this country. we've gotten over 5 million individual contributions. 27 bucks apiece. berniesanders.com. [ laughter ] if anyone's watching. secretary -- and i don't have a super pac. secretary clinton has a super pac. gets a lot of money from wall street and other special interests -- >> jimmy: i know you don't have a super pac. and i just want to give you something because i know you -- but i did get you a fanny pack. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
of the people. you're flying coach everywhere you go. you are. somebody tweeted this photograph of you and said you were watching "the bodyguard." were you watching "the bodyguard"? >> no. >> jimmy: you were not. [ laughter ] >> actually, i like that movie very much but i don't think i was watching it. >> jimmy: this election feels like it's been going on forever. does feel that way to you? >> it has been going on forever. >> jimmy: there's still a long way to go. >> yeah, it is. i'm not quite sure that this is the best way to elect a president of the united states, to be honest with you. i think it is a process which is neverending. and i think we've got to think about a different way. >> jimmy: there's a big difference between running for president and being president. >> absolutely. absolutely. and i think being president is having great people around you, the smartest people, most knowledgeable people, and dealing with the important issues facing our country. it's not necessarily, you know, spending 15 hours a day seven days a week running around the country. so there is a big deal of
this day of modern technology that you still have to go, you have to shake people's hands. >> absolutely. >> jimmy: you have to call them on the telephone. you were doing that today i heard? >> to me what has been most gratifying is we have a lot of rallies around the state. that's kind of a feature of our campaign. i think we're going to be in san diego tonight probably at 15,000, 20,000 people out. and i enjoy that. it's really an opportunity for people to come together. you see the glow in people's eyes, the hope that people have that we can improve this country and make it what i think all of us know we can. so that's very inspiring. >> jimmy: have you ever met donald trump? >> no. and i didn't go to his wedding either. let me be very clear about that. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's a thing. donald trump -- hillary clinton at donald trump's wedding. i think i asked her about this the last time she was here. it makes it feel like the whole thing is professional wrestling. it makes it feel like you've got the bad guy and the good guy and the good guy and the bad guy and whatever. then behind the scenes everybody's watching each other shower. [ laughter ]
in that shower room. [ applause ] >> jimmy: i know you support states' rights to legalize marijuana. you also said you smoked it a couple of times, it's not your thing. what is your thing? do you have a thing? >> yeah, my thing is my grandchildren. >> jimmy: you smoke your grandchildren? [ laughter ] >> i am very blessed, jane and i are very blessed. we have seven beautiful, beautiful grandchildren, and they're a delight. we try to spend as much time as we can. >> jimmy: we talked about the income inequality and the top 1% having a huge percentage of the money. do you think there should be a limit on how much an american can make? >> i would approach it another way. i think when we have cities like flint, michigan, where children -- and i've got to tell you. i was there. and it was one of the most painful things i've ever experienced. listening to parents who tell me about what happens to the cognitive capabilities of their children when they are poisoned
that is painful. and it's not just flint, michigan. all over this country we have deteriorating schools. we have people who are not getting the health care they need. not getting the -- not getting the jobs, unemployment for kids off the charts. and yet you have a handful of people, you have the 20 wealthiest people in this country owning more wealth than the bottom half of america. 150 million people, jimmy. and i don't think that's what america should be about. and i do believe we should raise taxes on upper-income people and large profitable corporations. that is my view. >> jimmy: you're not a republican, i guess. here's an interesting thing. because most republicans are not wealthy people. but they also kind of go along with that principle. >> that's the corruption of the campaign finance system. if you're going to run for president you need many hundreds of millions of dollars. that's where you're going to get it. let me give you one example. i'm on the senate environmental committee. i've talked to scientists all over the world. climate change is real. it's caused by human activity. and yet you don't have one
say that. >> jimmy: isn't that crazy? >> it is crazy. but it's more than crazy. the reason for it is the day they say it, they come on your show and say it, their campaign funding is cut by the koch brothers and the fossil fuel industry. >> jimmy: didn't lindsey graham, doesn't he -- >> maybe vaguely. but look, we've got an international crisis with climate change, and what the scientists tell us, if we don't move quickly you're going to see more droughts, more floods, rising sea levels. acidification of the ocean. we've got a crisis. and these guys hope -- trump, for example, thinks it's a hoax created by the chinese for all people. all right? [ laughter ] but the truth is if they stood up and did the right thing the koch brothers and the big money fossil fuel industry people would not fund their campaigns. that is how corrupt our current campaign finance system is. >> jimmy: i know you have to get to san diego. you've got a big rally there. i thank you for stopping by. i wish you a lot of luck. senator bernie sanders, everybody. [ cheers and applause ]
hiddleston. [ cheers and applause ] i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help
breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com. there has to be a way. carry the centimeter, divide by 3.14 something something something... [ beeping, whirring ] great caesar salad! and now the name your price tool shows people policy options to help fit their budget. is that a true story? yeah! people really do save an average of over $500 when they switch. i mean about you inventing it. i invented the story,
so... what else about me? mhmmm. friends. tonight, i present to you a very special bottle. it's a nice, robust italian. vine-ripened tomatoes. impressive. very. let's let it breathe. introducing classico riserva. extra virgin olive oil, vine-ripened tomatoes, a hint of basil. classico riserva uses only fresh, simple ingredients.
open a bottle of the good stuff. anyone else care to smell the lid? hmmm. this is the all-new 2016 chevy malibu. wow, it's nice. let's check it out. do any of you have kids? i do yes. this car has a feature built in called teen driver technology, which lets parent's see how their teens are driving. oh, that's smart. it even mutes the radio until the seat belt is fastened. will it keep track of how many boys get it in the car? (laughter) cause that could be useful. this is ahead of what my audi has for sure. wish my beamer had that. i didn't even know that technology existed.
still to come, music from granger smith. you know our next guest as the not so friendly brother of thor. next, he plays country music legend hank williams in the movie "i saw the light." when you are sad and lonely and have no place to go come and see me baby and bring some dough and we'll go honky-tonking honky-tonking honky-tonking honey baby we'll go honky-tonking around this town >> jimmy: "i saw the light" opens in theaters friday. please welcome tom hiddleston. [ cheers and applause ] how are you doing? thank you for coming. >> thank you, sir. >> jimmy: do you follow american politics?
presidential election? >> well, i'm british, as you may have noticed. >> jimmy: yes, i did. >> so i've also -- i was feeling the bern tonight, i have to say. >> jimmy: were you? [ cheers ] >> i met him backstage. he seemed like a very pleasant fellow. >> jimmy: are you guys laughing at us following our election and all the craziness that's going on? >> we had our general election last year, and it was similarly crazy. >> jimmy: was it really? >> yeah. it's an interesting time in the world. you know. >> jimmy: who was your donald trump over there? do you have one? [ laughter ] >> nigel faraj. >> jimmy: nigel faraj? >> and let's not give him any air time. >> jimmy: most people in the united states know you from "thor," the "avengers" movies. you have a show on the bbc that is coming to the united states. >> that's right. yeah. >> jimmy: what is the name of that show? >> "the night manager." >> jimmy: what i heard, i have a friend who's a very big fan of
of that show, which is about espionage and whatnot, that people are talking about the possibility you might be the next james bond. >> right. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: is that just talk or -- >> honestly, i play a british spy in "the night manager." so people i think have made the link. but honestly i feel like -- >> jimmy: you're experienced. you have spy experience. >> i've got form. >> jimmy: would you want to be james bond? >> in -- i mean, as somebody who grew up with sean connery and roger moore, when you mention it there's a part of me that goes, really? are you kidding? but i feel like who's going to be the next james bond is -- it's one of the nation's favorite pub conversations. it's up there with like who's going to win "x factor" and when is the england national side going to live up to its full potential and is britain going to leave the e.u. and all that sort of thing? >> jimmy: would the united kingdom accept an american james bond?
[ laughter ] >> possibly. are you going to audition? i feel like larry david would make a good james bond. >> jimmy: yeah, he would be a great james bond. we have a british superman. it really seems only fair that there might be an american james bond one day. that's like the most revolting thing i could say, right? [ applause ] >> i'll put a good word in next time. >> jimmy: well, you're playing an american icon, hank williams, who's one of the great singers in country and western music. did you know about hank williams before this movie? >> it's funny. i knew about hank as much as -- i feel like as a young brit watching american movies, they're so exotic. that's probably something you guys take for granted. but the fabric of americana is very exotic for us. so every time a hero would walk into a diner and order a milkshake and a burger there would be hank williams playing on the jukebox. it's interesting.
looking" is one of those songs like "happy birthday," you can start singing it anywhere in the world and people will start -- >> jimmy: oh, really? >> yeah. >> jimmy: it rhymes so beautifully. do you meet with hank williams jr. to ask him about his dad and study him? how do you go about doing something like this? >> hank jr. i think it's a very sensitive time for him. and he knew about the film. i actually met his sister, who's not by the same -- it's not his full sister. >> jimmy: i see. >> and i met his daughter holly. >> jimmy: yes. she's great, holly, by the way. she's a great musician. and they approved of your performance, i assume? >> it's all good. holly was really sweet. she wrote me an e-mail. and i think she's really proud of it. and she feels like i did -- i did him proud. >> jimmy: is that intimidating, to get up there and to sing and to have to learn to sing like really a national treasure? >> yeah.
i take the responsibility seriously. i knew as a british actor going in to play, you know, such a loved icon of american music i had to kind of -- >> jimmy: because we'll shoot you or something if you don't. [ laughter ] we'd go crazy. >> i was very dedicated. i went down to nashville and i lived with a musician called rodney crowell. >> jimmy: oh, yeah. rodney crowell. >> and he -- >> jimmy: he let you live with him? >> he did. i don't know who would do that. i can yodel now. there comes a time in a man's life when he's called upon to yodel. >> jimmy: every once in a while. >> for me it happened a little later -- >> jimmy: by the way, now i have to ask you to yodel. you realize that. [ cheers and applause ] you can't just -- you can't just stroll in here and say i can yodel now and then not yodel. >> i walked right into that, didn't i. >> jimmy: although you realize if you do yodel you will never
james bond does not yodel in any situation. so you have a huge decision here to make. >> which would you like me to do? >> jimmy: i'd love you to yodel. i really would. [ cheers and applause ] >> there's a fantastic hank williams song called "long gone lonesome blues." he starts off by singing about going down to the river to watch the fish swim by. then he says -- he's lonesome and he's singing about it. the chorus goes -- note i see the longhorn go home and i am longhorn some blues [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: nicely done. you can stay. tom hiddleston, everybody.
