[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- pharrell williams, from "ex machina", actor oscar isaac, music from delta rae, featuring the 8g band. ♪ [ chrs and applause ] and now, here he is, seth meyers! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: good evening, everybody. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] good to hear. you guys, even though it's well over more than a year away,
election season is starting to heat up. we're starting to hear who's going to run for president in 2016. hillary clinton is expected to launch her 2016 campaign sometime in the next two weeks. so remember, you guys, act surprised. [ laughter ] oh, my god, you're running for president? we never thought -- what? what a great idea. we never thought that! wow! [ laughter ] rand paul, yesterday, released a comic book -- he released a comic book detailing his campaign initiatives. he wants to lower taxes. he wants to abolish the irs. and get me spider-man! [ laughter ] [ applause ] ah, why not?
president obama invited the washington wizards to the white house this week for a basketball shoot around. which is different -- which is very different from the kind of shoot arounds dick cheney used to host. [ laughter and applause ] he called them "shoot a face." [ laughter ] want to come over for a shoot a face? a what? shoot around, shoot around, just come over. but bring your face. [ laughter ] a new poll in cuba shows that president obama -- >> woo! >> seth: okay. well, you know what? i'm going to check in with you after to see if you love or hate this joke. [ laughter ] you obviously feel very strongly about cuba. a new poll in cuba shows that president obama is more popular than fidel castro. then again, so is putting your whole family on a raft in the middle of the night. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
wooer, pro or con? >> woo! >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] we got to parse that "woo" later. did everybody here fill out ncaa brackets? did everyone go through that whole rigmarole? [ applause ] well, this is amazing to me. a sixth grader -- a sixth grader tied for the best espn ncaa bracket. but because he's under 18, he can't receive the prizes. [ audience aws ] he's the best in the country and he's getting nothing for it, just like the players. [ laughter and applause ] ncaa action, it's fantastic. not player-tastic. speaking of pro-basketball, it's been a rough season for the l.a. lakers. and coach byron scott said this week that he thinks, given the opportunity, most of his players would shoot him in the back. [ laughter ] on the plus side, they would probably miss. [ laughter and applause ]
not a dick cheney on that team. [ laughter ] a new york man pulled himself to safety yesterday evening after he fell on to the subway tracks during rush hour. the man caused such a commotion that some commuters even made eye contact. [ laughter ] very hard to do. [ applause ] very hard to do on the new york city subway. this next story is a little serious, and sometimes when we have serious stories, we have serious punch lines. so, i apologize. this part is very serious. [ light laughter ] for real, guys. an indonesian man managed to survive more than two hours in the wheel well of a plane this week, after stowing away on a flight bound for jakarta. asked how the experience went, the man said, "wheel well." [ laughter ] [ applause ]
that's why you do the job, you guys. every now and then, a wheel well joke comes across your desk and you go, "yeah! i'm glad i was bad at all subjects in college." [ laughter ] a judge in new york dismissed charges last week against ice cream truck vendor snowcone joe, accused of stalking and harassing his rival ice cream truck mr. ding-a-ling. [ laughter ] i think we can all agree the most shocking part of the story is that an ice cream man named mr. ding-a-ling wasn't the one being charged. [ laughter ] [ applause ] mom! mom, i hear mr. ding-a-ling! and, finally, this is amazing.
fish processors in alaska have started processing cod semen, a delicacy in japan, to rival caviar in seafood markets. and if you thought alaskan foodies were excited, imagine how excited the cod are. [ laughter ] you want my what? ladies and gentlemen, this is the 8g band. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: how are we doing, 8g band? everybody good? i want to wish a happy birthday to our guitarist seth jabour, everybody. give it up for seth. [ cheers and applause ] seth, of course, is known around our offices as "cool seth." [ laughter ] if you're wondering why, just look at him, man. i got nothing on cool seth. there he is. you guys, we've got a great show for you tonight. from nbc's "the voice", renowned producer and musician, pharrell williams is here tonight.
[ cheers and applause ] i can't wait to talk to him. also stopping by, star of the new film, "ex machina", oscar isaac. [ cheers and applause ] wonderful actor. he's a great guy. and we will have music for you from delta rae. [ cheers and applause ] very much looking forward to that. now, before we move on with the show, you guys, i am a big movie fan. and recently, i found out an interesting fact about one of the "star wars" films, "return of the jedi." apparently, that wasn't the original title. when it was first being promoted, it was "revenge of the jedi." and here is an actual poster they made before they changed the title. let's take a look. and what happened was that george lucas decided that revenge wasn't appropriate since a jedi would never seek revenge. so, anyway, i did a little research and found out this happens all the time. and a lot of the movies that we know and love started off with different titles. this brings us to a segment we call "original titles." ♪ [ applause ] so, let's get started. here's a movie that you might not know changed its title.
"the sound of music" is one of the most beloved movies of all time. but would people love it as much if "the sound of music" wasn't the original title? here's what it was originally entitled -- "songs and nazis." [ laughter ] [ applause ] i guess they decided a title like that might bring in the wrong kind of crowd. here's another movie that started off as something different. "the lego movie," a fun movie for both kids and adults. here's what they originally wanted to call it -- "lego commercial: the movie." [ laughter and applause ] they were a little worried. they were a little worried about that. they should have just let it be a commercial. here's a 1986 movie that shaped my childhood, "9 1/2 weeks." woo! [ scattered cheers ] sexy movie. here's the original title -- "66 days, give or take." [ laughter ] not as much fun. you know what they gave and took a lot of in that movie? food. [ light laughter ] strawberries. honey.
you don't hold honey like this. strawberries you can hold like this. not honey, then the rest of the day, honey fingers. [ laughter ] sorry, i'm a little hot from how hot that "9 1/2 weeks" joke played. [ laughter ] next, we have a movie that just came out last month, "chappie." you guys remember "chappie"? no, you don't? okay. bad for "chappie." a science-fiction film about a robot who gains artificial intelligence. here's the original -- "roboflop." [ laughter and applause ] sorry, "chappie." he's just a chappie, go easy on him. this next one was a movie about the 1980 u.s. olympic hockey team beating russia and winning the goal medal, "miracle." but it was first titled -- "five boys, one cup." [ laughter ] [ applause ]
next, we have one of my favorite sean connery movies, "hunt for red october." here's the original title -- "ten things i hate about u-boats." [ laughter ] [ applause ] the interesting thing -- the interesting thing is that this movie had a bunch of different titles. it was also "i know what u-boats did last october." and before that, it was titled, "i now pronounce u-boats chuck and larry." and, finally, this last movie is titled "the king's speech." the original title was -- the k-k -- [ stutters ] [ audience groans ] [ laughter ] we'll be right back with more "late night."

>> seth: you're great at it. when they asked you to do it, did you hesitate at all? >> no, i hauled ass. >> seth: yeah, you hauled ass over there? [ light laughter ] >> no, i jumped to it because i thought it was like a great opportunity to pay forward things that i've learned, you know, that i've been taught. and for me, there's no greater way to give back than to pay forward what's happened to you. >> seth: you also, i will say, you seem to actually be trying to pay it forward, where those other three just want to win. [ laughter ] >> well -- >> seth: like, you seem to be a nice person. those guys, do they just bicker and cut you off? they don't even let you talk in that clip. >> well, listen, that's also part of the reason why i do it, too. >> seth: okay, good. >> because blake and adam going back and forth like that is kind of awesome. >> seth: yeah. they're very good at it. >> yeah. >> seth: yeah. when this is over, i hope they get a sitcom where they live in the same apartment. [ laughter ] >> i keep asking them to like go make a film together, man. >> seth: yeah. >> i mean wouldn't you guys go see a blake and adam comedy? [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: yeah. you -- sometimes on the show, people will sing songs of the
judges. >> right. >> is that for you -- is that awkward when you hear someone doing one of your songs? >> not necessarily awkward, but i definitely get shy. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: it must be strange to hear your own works like that. >> let me -- okay, i'm a producer, right? >> seth: yeah. >> i'm trying to make it make sense for you guys. have it make sense. so, do you like your voice on the voicemail? >> no. >> okay. [ laughter ] >> seth: there you go. >> imagine it being on the radio like that. >> seth: oh, yeah. >> now, you might go, eww, i'm grateful, but it's still like a weird -- is that really my song? >> seth: yeah. >> because i've spent so much time producing and working with other people that i never dreamt -- ever dreamt of this. >> seth: right. >> and so, when i'm on the show and that happens, you're just kind of like -- [ laughter ] good job. >> seth: yeah. but then you had, someone in the blinds did happy.
>> yeah. >> seth: you turned around. >> yeah. >> seth: and then she didn't -- she went with another team. >> yeah, because, well there is such a thing called odds. >> seth: yeah, that's true. but to me, i would -- >> they're usually against me. >> seth: she could have done a different song. i do not care for that person. [ laughter ] >> because i'm adam. >> seth: you just went to machu picchu. you have a picture here. >> yes. >> seth: which is a great photo of one of the most beautiful places in the world. i went there for my honeymoon. did you hike up to the top? >> we did not. >> seth: yeah, i didn't either. >> yeah. >> seth: and i don't feel bad about it. >> yeah. see for that part, i watch like national geographic. >> seth: yeah. >> and you can just like -- >> seth: just watch somebody else walk up with a camera. you're like, got it, got it, got it. >> yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. because the other thing that -- when you get, you know, when you get to that kind of -- when you get to that height -- >> seth: that altitude, yeah, it's crazy. >> that altitude kicks in, you start to realize that there's a very necessary real, real variable called gravity.
>> seth: yeah. >> and it pulls down on everything. i mean, we're in our room and i'm walking from the hallway to the bedroom and it's like, you have to sit down for like five minutes. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> and sort of think. >> seth: the only -- >> and that's why you have visions up there, because the altitude is just like -- the only thing -- >> seth: yeah. >> we pulled over on the side of the road, and we got like some of the most amazing things there. and i went to use the bathroom, and like, i'm -- i'm going to not do the tmi, but i'm sort of standing there and there's like no light in the hallway and it's kind of dark. and i'm like -- [ laughter ] i thought i could tell you what the future was at that point. i mean, that's how strong the altitude, the force there is. >> seth: the only things that do okay up there are goats. like, the goats are killing it at machu picchu. [ laughter ] >> it's unbelievable the way they running up and down the stairs. it's like training for the nfl. >> seth: the goats are showing off. they are showing off so much. it's the cockiest goats you'll ever meet are in peru. >> unbelievable. >> seth: yeah. >> excuse me. >> seth: yeah.
>> baaa-baaa. [ laughter ] [ cheers ] >> seth: you were successful at a young age. you were making money at a young age. you did something very sweet, you bought a house for your parents. >> yes. >> seth: which is just incredibly lovely. [ audience aws ] and then you did something which is maybe some people would say is a little strange. you immediately moved into that house with them. >> oh, yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's great. >> well, because i wasn't ready to live on my own, you know? >> seth: yeah. >> so, i loved it. >> seth: and is it -- when you -- so, i'm assuming you sometimes you have to bring people back home late at night? >> yes. >> seth: is it any different if you paid for the house? or you still have to -- [ laughter ] >> it's kind of not, you know. >> seth: you still got to sneak? >> yeah, girls will be like -- [ whispering ] why are we tiptoeing? [ laughter ] why? and i just have to go -- [ whispering ] my mom and dad's in there. [ laughter ] >> seth: and then you -- >> after a while, it's kind of like, you know, babe, you're going to be 30 something. >> seth: yeah. we need you to move out of the
house you bought us. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: this is -- you've collaborated so many people. you've collaborated with justin timberlake. i did not know this, "i'm loving it," that was you. >> mh-hmm. >> seth: so, that becomes the -- you know, the mcdonalds theme, "i'm loving it." and then you have worked at mcdonalds as a kid and were fired. [ laughter ] was that the greatest revenge when you were making that mcdonalds money later in life? [ laughter ] >> sweet and sour sauce. [ applause ] no, it wasn't revenge. i -- listen, man, i've just been kind of -- i couldn't believe that that was happening. >> seth: yeah. >> you know, i couldn't believe that i got that opportunity, actually a gentleman by the name of steve stout brought me that opportunity. and that was just like a crazy thing. because i got fired from mcdonald's three times, not just one. >> seth: three times? >> yeah. >> seth: the same mcdonalds or -- >> no, no, no. different locations. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's the problem with having so many locations. >> oh, you know. you know, you got to -- you have to figure it out.
>> seth: what would they fire you for? >> i was lazy. >> seth: yeah, okay. >> i was very lazy. williams, go mop the -- whatever it's called. >> seth: right. god, if you don't know it's called a floor, you're in trouble. [ laughter and applause ] >> and i'm, you know, i go out there, but the problem is, is i get caught up in the music because they would play music and the -- i don't know even know what it's called. out in the dining area? >> seth: sure, there you go. >> okay, cool. so, like the music would be playing and i'm like -- >> seth: right. ♪ i'm a hustler baby [ laughter ] >> but you know, at a certain point it just -- you know, they realized that i was no, no help. >> seth: right. [ laughter ] >> yeah, i was only good at eating the chicken nuggets. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: well, if that was a job, i would be like vice president of mcdonalds by now. >> yeah. >> seth: you were talking about collaborations. you almost -- you had a near collaboration with someone who -- in the end you didn't work with? you got a call from someone you didn't believe who it was?
>> yeah, you know, i was in the studio with justin. and all my life, you know, i always wanted to work with michael jackson. so, i get this phone call at battery studios, i'll never forget it. they're like, "hey, can you pick up? got someone on the phone for you." all right, who is it? "yeah, it's michael jackson." man, just get out of here. [ laughter ] >> seth: just hung it up? >> yeah, they hadn't even put him on the phone. i'm like, guys, can you stop playing at the front desk. and i'm telling the engineers this and i'm like dude, i love this studio. it's a great sound but like they're in there playing. like, they're saying it's michael jackson. four calls later, you know, he's like "hello." i'm like, that's not michael because michael's voice is way higher than that. [ laughter ] and he's -- "no, it's me." and i realized it was him because he was eating popcorn in my ear. >> seth: oh, wow. >> on the phone call. and i was like, that's michael jackson. >> but i never got a chance to work with him. >> seth: that's good. i want to talk about another collaboration you're doing with al gore. >> yes, sir. >> seth: who is probably as close as you can get to michael jackson. they're very similar. [ laughter ] >> yeah.

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: good beard. first of all, i just want to say about the clip, really good beard. >> thanks. >> seth: your beard, yeah? >> yeah, yeah, my beard. >> seth: that's good. because you can't -- i still think, with everything they're doing with cgi in movies, fake beard, you can tell right away. >> yeah, but that one -- you can't so much tell with that one, i think, because it's so big and bushy. >> seth: it's great. that's what i mean. i saw it, and i was like, "that's a real beard." >> thanks, man. >> seth: no, really. >> everything else is probably fake. but the beard -- >> seth: well that's --
well, you play a reclusive tech genius. and you kind of -- you didn't -- i would say you played him the way most people would approach that role. how did you go about playing this guy? >> well, yeah, i mean, alex garland, who wrote and directed the film -- he's an incredible, incredible artist. he's so good. and he wrote this very funny, weird character, dark character, and he kind of has his whole bro billionaire speak. that kind of silicon valley thing. so, that was in there already. you know the kind of guys that say, like, "dude, man, i'm your friend. give me all your rights. dude, it's fine. give me your privacy." >> seth: yeah. "i'm worth so much. like, i just want to roll with you. i just want to be bros like we used to be. also my jet's here and i have to go." >> that guy, yeah. so, that's in there already, so i thought -- i wanted to kind of find other inspiration from other places. so, bobby fischer was someone i though about because my character -- you know, he wrote this blue book, which is the world's most popular search engine, at 13. so, he's a savant, self-taught. and i thought, bobby fischer's also someone that was self-taught, from the bronx, really dark, misanthropic, but a genius as well.
so him, and then kubrick as well as another guy from the bronx. >> seth: that's great. so you gave yourself a bronx accent? >> yeah, yeah, we listened to kubrick speak a little bit. >> seth: that's great. you also -- which is very different than kubrick -- you also have some serious disco moves in this movie. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: kubrick was not known -- bobby fischer and kubrick, you never heard of either of them dancing. >> no, no. >> seth: where -- did you have disco moves coming in? >> i had no disco moves coming in. >> seth: okay, gotcha. >> i acquired them all doing the movie because we had this great choreographer named arthur pita, who was like mr. disco at one point. >> seth: is "mr. disco" a title that you can -- >> yeah. >> seth: oh, wow. do they still give it out? or that must be one of those ones that's like -- >> it's a one off. >> seth: yeah. >> that's it, we got him. we found him. >> seth: yeah, right. it's a lifetime appointment. it's like the supreme court. >> yeah, exactly. a lifetime appointment. so, yeah, he showed us these moves for a couple weeks and then we did it in the movie. >> seth: that's great. you also of course have coming up -- you're in the new "star wars" movie. very exciting.
[ cheers and applause ] i was very happy to hear this because you had -- nothing would make me sadder -- and i'm sure there are people at the movie who are like, "oh, i never watched the 'star wars' movies." that's not you. you were a big fan. >> i was a big fan. >> seth: not just you, but your whole family. >> the entire family was obsessed. still obsessed with it. >> seth: what would you do? so you guys would, like, make a real event when these new movies came out. >> yeah, every new movie, we'd dress up like characters. so, i mean, these are grown-ass people doing this. >> seth: right. [ laughter ] now, is this -- when you say "every new movie," are you talking about the first three, or are you talking about the last three? >> dude, the last three. >> seth: wow. >> yeah. >> seth: okay, so that's -- >> yeah, that was like 2006. >> seth: yeah, it wasn't that long ago. so, when you -- did you dress up or were you over it? >> yeah, you have to. you have you to go and do it no matter what. >> seth: so, what did you dress up as? what character? >> well, i went for functionality over form. >> seth: gotcha. >> so, i went with a gonk droid. >> seth: a gonk droid. now, we actually have a photo of a gonk droid because -- >> the most bad-ass gonk droid you can imagine. >> seth: this is not a good costume, oscar. [ laughter ] what did you wear? what did you wear to look like a gonk droid? >> it's a box. >> seth: so, you just put a box on?
>> you just put a box and some gray shoes on and you're done. >> seth: is your family disappointed when you show up? because no one -- when you open the door no one's like, "oh, the gonk droid!" [ laughter ] >> look, someone's got to be the gonk droid. >> seth: that's true. your family's big enough that you have all the characters covered. >> they got them all. >> seth: you got a gonk droid. >> yeah, you can't have five darth mauls, you know? >> seth: exactly. and everybody wants it. but on the set, it must be crazy because the original actors who played some of the characters -- like for chewbacca. i mean, what's it like when you're walking on the set? >> yeah, that's wild. i mean, for me, it all really became a reality when i heard anthony daniels speak for the first time at the read-through. that was pretty wild. because it's just -- that's the voice, you know? such an iconic voice. >> seth: what are the other -- you actually talked to harrison ford? >> yeah. >> seth: because you play -- you're a pilot in the film? >> i do some piloting in the film. that's all i can say. >> seth: that's not everything. i do a lot of other stuff." >> i do other things. i may have a beard. >> seth: that's true. i don't want to get you in a jam on spoilers. >> but i did do some piloting, so you know, i'm really eager and excited when i get there. like, harrison ford, he's a real
pilot. >> seth: he's a real pilot. >> so, i'm like, "can you give me some tips? how do you do it? what should i do as far as piloting?" and he's like, "it's fake." [ laughter ] "and it's in space. so, none of that applies really." i was like, got it. >> seth: got it. thank you. >> thank you. i can do that. >> seth: thank you, harrison ford. i like that he was like, "oh, so that's sort of a broader acting thing in general." >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: just like, "it's all kind of fake." >> yeah. exactly. >> seth: you're also going to be in the next "x-men movie." >> yeah. >> seth: and you're playing a villain in that. this is a real -- [ applause ] real geek dream roles, back to back. >> pretty much, yeah. >> seth: and you're playing apocalypse, the villain apocalypse. >> yes, i am. >> seth: is that a character you were familiar with? >> yeah, when i was a kid, i would, you know -- i was collecting x-factor, and i was also kind of obsessed with the end of the world. >> seth: right. so, a character named "apocalypse" -- >> and armageddon, yeah. it was like right up my alley. like, the actual embodiment of the second coming and -- yeah. >> seth: it's funny. did you -- when you were reading -- because i would do this with my friends.
did you ever, when you were reading "x-men" say like who would be the actors, who would play -- >> totally. we'd be like, "imagine if they ever made a movie." if they made a movie -- >> seth: who were some of your x-men? >> so, for cyclops i had tom cruise. >> seth: great. >> jean grey was julia roberts. >> seth: gotcha. you're already over budget. i'm just telling you. >> all right, okay. [ laughter ] well, that's why with wolverine, we went with glenn danzig. >> seth: oh, wow. so, you really -- you saved your money on wolverine. [ laughter ] >> yeah, exactly. that's where we saved the budget. >> seth: you said to the producers, "wait, i know." you should start with danzig, though, because then they'll go, "this is great! this is low budget." >> and then, howard for magneto. >> seth: did you ever think of an apocalypse? >> no, because like, who would ever make apocalypse a character in their movie? >> seth: i like to think of you as a kid saying, "and if there's ever apocalypse, i'll play him!" and your friends are like, "you're the dummy! they're never going to make apocalypse." >> and i'm like "ha ha ha! >> seth: i got you! >> gotcha, suckers. >> seth: that's all very cool. but there was a role you played, a character that i think everyone would agree is one of your finest roles. it's in one of your earlier films. you played a character named officer fartman. [ laughter ] am i right?
is that what the name was? >> fartman. >> seth: fartman. [ laughter ] gotcha. so, officer fartman, but this is not a character -- he didn't have a flatulence problem, is that correct? >> he'd never fart. never farted once in the movie. >> seth: this is a kids' movie. >> i hope so, yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: did they not tell you while you were making it? >> not really. we didn't know. michael winslow was in this movie. >> seth: oh, okay. there you go. so, he goes both ways. you don't know. >> detective fartman. >> seth: detective fartman. oh, i'm sorry. i said "officer," i didn't realize he'd gotten promoted. [ laughter ] you know what, he's got to be a really good cop because you know that they don't want to promote fartman. [ laughter ] >> like, "oh, gosh. he's just too good. he always solves the crimes." >> seth: "fartman, you did it again." [ laughter ] but do you ever -- what was the name of the movie? was it -- >> "lenny the wonder dog." >> seth: "lenny the wonder dog." wow. and was he detective fartman's partner? >> no, he was one of the bad guys. he was -- yeah, him and the other detective were like -- >> seth: oh, dirty cops. >> yeah, dirty cops. >> seth: gotcha. wow. >> smelly cops. >> seth: and that's bad because
dogs have a sense of smell. they know when cops are dirty faster than humans. >> it was a brilliant, brilliant thought-out thing. >> seth: but should we look for -- for us, going into "star wars" -- >> there's going to be some fartman in all of my characters. >> seth: so, for your fans of your early work, we can always see a little detective fartman. >> yeah, they'll be like, "oh, that's fartman. i see it." [ laughter ] >> seth: well, thank you so much for being here. i can't wait to look for fartman in all your films. >> thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: oscar isaac, everyone!
