tv   Late Night With Seth Meyers  NBC  April 23, 2016 12:37am-1:38am EDT

12:37 am
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- lena dunham and jenni konner, from, "rogue", actress ashley greene, music from birdy, featuring the 8g band with brann dailor. ♪ [ cheers and applause ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. >> seth: good evening, i'm seth meyers, this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] fantastic to hear. in that case let's get to the news. ted cruz decisively won last night's wisconsin republican primary, with almost 50% of the votes. but wait, if cruz was the winner, that means donald trump was the -- what's the word? >> a loser. [ applause ] >> seth: that's it.
12:38 am
that's it, thank you. i always forget it right when i need it. following his win in wisconsin, ted cruz today campaigned in the bronx. said cruz supporters, "none of us live there." [ laughter ] hillary clinton and bernie sanders have scheduled a debate for next thursday in brooklyn. which is about as close as bernie sanders can get to wall street without spontaneously combusting. [ laughter ] john kasich, yesterday responded to donald trump's calls on him to suspend his campaign. and said, quote, "i'm not dropping out, i'm dropping in." specifically, in the polls. [ laughter ] former advisor roger stone threatened yesterday that he will send donald trump supporters to the hotel room of any republican delegates who try stealing the nomination from trump this summer. and those delegates will probably answer the door too, because they're expecting a prostitute. [ laughter and applause ]
12:39 am
hey -- make america great again hat? oh, no! [ applause ] former president bill clinton, yesterday, said one of the recent republican debates sounded like a rap tune on mtv. a rap tune on mtv -- [ laughter ] oh, man, remember when bill was the cool president? [ laughter ] playing saxophone on arsenio hall. then barack obama came along and made him look like vanilla ice. [ laughter ] then again -- then again, maybe bill's just trying to look lame so hillary looks cooler in comparison. she's like the mom at a wedding who's dancing is embarrassing, but not as embarrassing as the fact that her husband is going around asking the groomsmen, "you kids like outkast? who wants to go outside and smoke some reefer, let's do this." [ laughter ] the dea has announced that by the middle of the year, they may decide to remove marijuana from its, "schedule i," category of dangerous drugs. because let's face it, it's absurd to have marijuana and schedule in the same sentence.
12:40 am
[ light laughter ] the dea may -- that's right, the dea may decide to remove marijuana from its, "schedule i" category of dangerous drugs. the dea has concluded that the only real danger with marijuana is that it makes you want to buy a lincoln. [ laughter and applause ] that's the only reason. hillary clinton said in a recent interview that she is not a natural politician. as opposed to this smooth operator. [ laughter ] bernie sanders, today, congratulated the uconn women's basketball team for winning their fourth ncaa title in a row. added sanders -- [ bernie sanders voice ] "but now it's time to break them up!" [ laughter ] "four is too many for one team! you've been the one percent too long, you're done!" [ laughter and applause ]
12:41 am
and finally, subway has begun posting calorie counts on the menu boards of its 27,000 stores nationwide. and chipotle is posting a body count. [ laughter and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you. from hbo's "girls" lena dunham and jenni konner are here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] so excited to talk to them about what's been an excellent season. also, from direct tv's "rogue" ashley greene is joining us tonight on "late night." [ cheers and applause ] and we will have music from a fantastic singer, birdy. [ cheers and applause ] but, before we get to all of that. last night, voters in wisconsin went to the polls in that states presidential primary, and some waited in line for hours even after the results had been announced, just to cast their ballot. the long lines in wisconsin are just the latest sign this year that our voting process is becoming just as dysfunctional as our political system. for more on this, it's time for, "a closer look."
12:42 am
♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: the wisconsin primary was special for a number of reasons. for one, it posed a crucial test of donald trump's electoral strength. but just as important, it gave reporters an opportunity to make lame, cheese-references. >> will voters in wisconsin make swiss cheese out of donald trumps presidential plans? >> they're all trying to be the big cheese in wisconsin. >> the big apple and the big cheese. >> our reporters spread like a fine cheese. [ laughter ] >> seth: cheesus, mary and joseph, cool it with the puns! [ laughter and applause ] now, there was also the ritual of trying to get candidates to wear a giant cheese hat. a ritual that donald trump declined to participate in, i guess because he was already wearing one? [ laughter ] but he actually did have an explanation. >> mr. trump can you wear the hat? >> no, because you know -- i've seen too much of michael dukakis. you understand? >> yeah, the helmet. >> that was one of the great mistakes in history putting on the helmet. no, i'll take a pass.
12:43 am
>> yes, michael dukakis is the reason i won't put the cheese on my head. [ laughter ] and not the fact that my hair is a delicately constructed house of cards that must be shielded from any and all external threats. [ laughter ] of course, trump declining to wear the cheese hat left an opening for ted cruz to dart out from his hole, steal the cheese, and drag it back to his nest. [ laughter and applause ] but in addition to cheese, wisconsin is now known for something else, long lines. voters in some precincts last night, waited for hours to cast their ballots because of a restrictive new voter i.d. law that caused major delays. and msnbc's three-man team of identical reporters in sweaters and collared shirts, were all over it. [ laughter ] if weezer ever needs a new front-man, msnbc's got it covered. [ laughter ] now, part of the reason for the long lines and simply the high turn out. but much of it was also due to the state's restrictive new voter i.d. law, which requires voters to present valid photo i.d. at the polls.
12:44 am
it's the first time the system has been in place in wisconsin, and the election lines were long, so long in fact, that people were looking for ways to pass the time. >> it's about a two hour wait at this point, people are doing all they can to try to stay occupied. there's a guy reading a fantasy novel. his mom's got some hard philosophy, she's read about 40 pages, he's read about 60. there's a married couple here, 41 years together. they're getting some quality time in they didn't expect. >> seth: quality time? when you're married 41 years, quality time isn't standing in a line at a public school. it's holding hands during an episode of, "ncis." [ laughter ] in fact, the situation was so frustrating, a few kind souls even tried to help out by volunteering to pass out food. although there was one guy who didn't seem all that legit when he was approached for an interview. >> people are still persevering here. this gentleman is a volunteer, handing out candy, what gave you this idea. he's a defender of democracy. >> seth: defender of democracy? based on how quickly he made tracks, it looked like that candy was to lure people into his van.
12:45 am
[ laughter ] also, just a word of advice, if a random dude is handing out skittles on line at a polling place, maybe don't taste that rainbow. maybe wait for the next rainbow. remember, this is just the primary, the november election could be much worse. by one estimate, wisconsin's voter i.d. law could block 300,000 registered voters from the polls. the stated justification from republicans for the wisconsin law and others like it is to prevent voter fraud. but a wisconsin federal district court judge found that the laws defenders quote, "could not point to a single instance of known voter impersonation occurring in wisconsin at any time, in the recent past." not a single instance, wisconsin had more successful netflix series than instances of voter fraud. [ light laughter ] which has led reporters who cover these laws, to reach the natural conclusion, that this isn't really about stopping voter fraud, it's about helping republicans keep power. but it's rare that republicans slip up and actually admit that's what's going on. that is, until last night, when wisconsin congressman
12:46 am
glenn grothman, seemed to do just that. >> take me forward to november. you know that a lot of republicans since 1984, in the presidential races have not been able to win in wisconsin. why would it be any different for ted cruz or a donald trump. >> well, i think hillary clinton is about the weakest candidate the democrats have ever put up, and now we have photo id. i think photo id is going to make a little bit of a difference as well. >> seth: no, no, no, no, no! you're not supposed to say that out loud! [ laughter ] that's like a dude rolling up in a corvette and saying, "you know, i bought this bad boy to compensate for my tiny penis." [ laughter ] "now what say you hop in? there's plenty of room, because my penis is so tiny." [ laughter and applause ] perhaps the most disturbing part of this is that wisconsin is just the latest example of how dysfunctional our voting process has become. a similar voter i.d. law in north carolina created widespread problems during that state's primary three weeks ago. in fact, one voter, rudy ravindra, a 66-year-old retired scientist from india,
12:47 am
who became a u.s. citizen in 1992, faced a spelling test when he and his wife voted. ravindra said, quote, "i gave my driver's license to a poll worker, he kept it face down and ordered me to spell my name." that's right, people in north carolina have to spell their own names to vote. which is terrible news for the nation's kaylee's. [ laughter ] so many ways you can go kaylee. [ laughter ] this is america, the only time you should have to spell your own name is when you're screaming it on a call with time warner cable. [ laughter ] but it's not just voter i.d. laws that are causing problems at the polls. by far the most shocking display of election dysfunction this year, came two weeks ago in the arizona primary, where a decision to shut down polling places caused mass chaos. >> thousands of people in maricopa county, the largest county in the state, waited up to five hours in line to cast a ballot. >> some people didn't get their ballots in until about midnight. >> some voters passed the time in line by ordering a pizza. >> you've been here almost three hours? >> yes. >> are you frustrated at all
12:48 am
with that wait? >> yes. >> if you've been in line so long, the pizza place is willing to deliver to you, you're going to be frustrated. "is that a house or an apartment?" it's a line, i live in a line. [ laughter ] the long lines happened after the election official in charge of election procedure, decided to cut the number of polling places by 70%. when that official was asked who's fault the fiasco was, she at first offered this infuriating response. >> who's to blame for these long lines. >> well, the voters for getting in line. [ audience ohs ] >> seth: before they showed up it was a perfectly nice sidewalk! [ laughter ] now, that official did later take full responsibility for the screw up. but what we've seen in wisconsin, arizona and north carolina over the past few year weeks is that the voting process in this country is becoming deeply dysfunctional. just imagine if one of those states turns out to be the deciding state in november. we could end up with another situation like florida in 2000. and no one wants to see any of these candidates in an al gore sadness beard.
12:49 am

12:54 am
because you instagramed a photo of yourself. this is from the film "neighbors 2." >> yep. >> seth: cut from the movie. >> fully cut, not in that movie. >> seth: but you're okay. >> yeah, i'm great. >> seth: because, here you are. there you are, so that's -- you're joan of arcing it. >> i played joan of arc in the film "neighbors 2." well, i no longer play joan of arc in the film "neighbors 2." it was amazing because there was a sequence in which they've, sort of, rewritten history. so, joan of arc jumps off the pyre, grows laser hands and laser eyes and then chops up a bunch of dudes. [ light laughter ] so i was like, they called me, and i was like, "yes, that's my dream role." >> seth: yeah. >> i'm fully available to you. and i went to atlanta, the armor weighed about 85 pounds. >> seth: okay, that sounds uncomfortable. >> it was a full suit of serious armor. to the point where, unless i was standing like that, i had to be lying down. [ light laughter ] and at one point i had to demand that executive producer seth rogan bring me a cup of salami that i could eat reclined. and then i was like, "i have to pee." and they were like, "we can't help you with that." >> seth: so, it seems like,
12:55 am
other than the costume, you and joan of arc diverged quite a great deal. i don't remember cup of salami being part of her story. >> it's not, but i felt very in her body that day. [ light laughter ] and very connected with her essence. and that was enough for me. so being in the movie, honestly, being in the movie, it wasn't even important to me. >> seth: right. >> it was important for me to embody her, to be truthful about who she was, to eat that salami, and get the f home. it was perfect. >> seth: now, you also, you lived my dream, your dream might be joan of arc. you lived my dream, you went to see rihanna. >> i did. >> seth: with amy schumer. >> i did. >> so that's the two of you, who else do we have here? >> right here. >> seth: who are these gentlemen? >> we'e got our friend rachel feinstein who's an amazing comedian. >> seth: okay. >> and then, what we also have are a pair of voguers. you can tell, because one of their hats says the word vogue. >> seth: vogue. and they don't just give hats like that out. you have to be a voguer. >> you have to be a voguer. so these are two guys who do this very sensual, animalistic movement behind rihanna.
12:56 am
nd so when they came out we kind of -- >> seth: were you enjoying the show? >> it was the best two hours of my life. i think probably, you know i'm prone to anxiety, i'm an anxious person. >> seth: yeah. >> and, i think, for two hours, i knew what it was like to really be free, and to be young and to be alive. >> seth: wow! [ cheers ] >> i felt so good in my body. i felt so -- full of, much like i embodied joan of arc. i became full of rhianna's energy. >> seth: when i've seen -- the times i've seen her perform, be it snl or other things i watch her and i -- my overriding idea or feeling is everything will be okay, you guys. >> that's how i feel. >> seth: rhianna's here, everything's gonna be okay. >> here's my big theory about rihanna, and i hope this is okay to say here on television, which is that her vagina never hurts. >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] i think that is okay to say. i'm checking. it's good, we're good. >> okay. i think that she feels a feeling of freedom and pleasure that is out of the reach of mere mortals. but for two hours at her

concert. i also think she's an amazing role model, and an amazing artist, and has overcome all kinds of adversity. but really for me, i was just like "girl, i'm feeling your butt." >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] >> i felt so lucky to be there. and then i kissed the hands of all of those voguers. >> seth: of the voguers? >> mm-hmm. i kissed the hands of multiple backup dancers and now i have bronchitis. not blaming them. [ light laughter ] not blaming them. >> seth: this season of "girls" has been fantastic. >> thank you. >> seth: congratulations. it really is one -- [ cheers ] it's long been one of my favorite shows. and i'm just so impressed at how the show and the characters have matured every season. and yet, hannah had a moment of not maturing this week. >> yeah. >> seth: working as a teacher now, talking to the principal in the office, and you full "basic instinct"-ed it. >> full "basic instinct"-ed it. >> seth: you just opened the legs and we had the basic, "basic instinct" shot. >> yeah, we did. we saw everything that i had to
12:58 am
offer. >> seth: yeah. it was -- again, if you watch "girls", like, you think you've reached a point where you go, nothing will be jarring to me as a "girls", a loyalist. >> it was shocking to me also. the thing is, when they told me about it in the writers room. i was like, "oh, come on guys." like, i had gone to the bathroom, i came back and they're like, big idea. hannah opens her legs, no underwear. right on the principal. i was like, don't do this to me. and then like 10 minutes later it was in the script. and five months later i was sitting there on set, listening to the director say that they need to add an extra key light because they couldn't see quite clearly enough. [ light laughter ] so -- >> seth: you had to have an extra light for your, your vagina. >> yeah, i had to have an extra light for my vagina. and here's what i've been trying to figure out. and tell me if you think it's wrong. here's why it's not porn. >> seth: oh, great. >> because you don't see what's inside. >> seth: oh. >> so i feel like i can continue to proudly campaign for a presidential candidate without getting -- not that i have a problem with
12:59 am
people who show what's inside. i'm just saying that, in our conservative nation, i didn't go all the way. >> seth: no. [ light laughter ] it's also, i think for anyone who desires porn, it really takes the edge off when you think of it that way, because i don't think you ever think, let's see what's inside. >> i know. [ light laughter ] i know. >> seth: i want to see what's inside. >> i gotta see that inner stuff. that's what i'm going home to look up. is googling what's inside. and yeah, and people keep asking me, if i feel like hannah made a smart choice. like, they think because i play her, and cause i did it, it endorse this behavior. obviously you should never spread your underpantsless legs for your employer, that is called sexual harassment. >> seth: right. >> but, i can play it without endorsing it. >> seth: yes. that must be an amazing journey you've taken with the show. because i feel like people have so tied you to that character. >> yeah. >> seth: in a way that is unfair of other people who play fictional characters. >> you know, i'm sure people think larry david's going to be like, grumpy if you park in front of him. like, i get it.
1:00 am
but, like, i think people are surprised because i'm actually a bit more conservative than that in my own personal life. >> speaking of conservative, you are reaching a very important age. you're about to turn 30? >> mm-hmm. give me a month. >> seth: and you are excited or bummed? >> so excited. >> seth: okay. [ cheers and applause ] >> so excited. i'm not there yet, my boyfriend is 32. >> seth: okay. >> he seems to really be enjoying it, my thing is this, which is, i'd be willing to turn 30 just so that people will stop telling me how much better it is to be 30. >> seth: right. >> but i also just feel like there's something like a sensual confidence, and there's something about your 20s, where it's like, a little hard to be taken seriously, people assume you're going to make a mess of things. maybe you have made a mess of things. >> seth: yeah. >> i just feel like 30's going to be a clean slate for me, and i'm thrilled. >> seth: that's exciting. i will tell you as someone who's now turned 40, i also wish i was also about to turn 30. [ light laughter ] >> i don't think of you as 40, i think of you as like, a solid 36. >> seth: thank you very much.
1:01 am
i'm gonna bring that home to my wife tonight, and lay that out for her. >> good. >> seth: cause she likes to remind me that, where i'm at age wise. >> cause she's younger. >> seth: yeah, she's younger. >> you have a very youthful energy. >> seth: i think she likes to point out that, if i was still going out, it would be sad. [ light laughter ] >> and it is interesting, i once saw an ex of mine, i didn't say hi to him, but i saw him drinking beer out of a bag on a stoop. i calculated that man is now 40 and he's alone on a stoop drinking beer out of a bag, it's not cool any more. >> seth: that might never be super cool. [ light laughter ] >> i thought it was, i thought it was pretty cool when i was 22. >> seth: yeah, that's true. >> i thought it was pretty dope, to be honest. >> seth: yeah, but that's the thing, let's say i'm drinking my bag of beer on a stoop. >> yeah. >> seth: some 22-year-old rolls up, and like, hey, that's cool. i would have to say, just so you know, i'm 42, and they would probably keep walking. >> why is seth meyers drinking a bag of beer on a stoop?

januvia (sitagliptin) is a once-daily pill that, along with diet and exercise, helps lower blood sugar. januvia works when your blood sugar is high and works less when your blood sugar is low, because it works by enhancing your body's own ability to lower blood sugar. plus januvia, by itself, is not likely to cause weight gain or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). januvia should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. tell your doctor if you have a history of pancreatitis. serious side effects can happen, including pancreatitis which may be severe and lead to death. stop taking januvia and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area which may be pancreatitis. tell your doctor right away and stop taking januvia if you have an allergic reaction that causes swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat, or affects your breathing or causes rash or hives. kidney problems sometimes requiring dialysis have been reported. some people may develop severe joint pain. call your doctor if this happens. using januvia with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. to reduce the risk, your doctor may prescribe a lower dose of the sulfonylurea or insulin.
1:05 am
your doctor may do blood tests before and during treatment to check your kidneys. if you have kidney problems a lower dose may be prescribed. side effects may include upper respiratory tract infection, stuffy or runny nose, sore throat, and headache. for help lowering your blood sugar talk to your doctor about januvia. don't let dust and allergies get and life's beautiful moments. with flonase allergy relief, they wont. when we breathe in allergens,

>> seth: and i heard that you guys will actually send photos to set to let people know the poses they're supposed to be in. [ laughter ] >> it's true. >> seth: you guys want to tell us what this one was supposed to be? >> well first of all, i want to point out that bruce kaplan, our executive producer, is looking over so repulsed. [ laughter ] >> horrified. >> seth: it's, like, not a great idea to not frame him out, but there he is. >> no, there he is. you know, i think it's, like, it started out because sometimes we read between our scripts, and our actors would just be like, "we don't know what that is. we're not sure how to possibly do it." and so, jenny and i would act it out. and at this point, it's just habit. >> and this, i just want to say is a spoiler alert. >> seth: oh, this is a spoiler alert? >> this is for next season. >> for the coming season. >> seth: so, you told us the sex acts -- you have written a very interesting show that this is a spoiler alert. >> yes. [ laughter ] >> i know. >> i'm so happy we did that before we put jenny in the position. she said to me, "is this gonna hurt?" >> seth: oh, no! >> and i think it's fine. >> seth: now, you're gonna spend the rest of the time trying to guess which characters it is? >> here's what i'll say. there's a sink involved.
1:10 am
she's meant to be leaning over a sink. she's miming the sink. >> seth: okay, gotcha. >> i don't know if you can tell, i'm a master mime. there's nothing there. >> seth: oh, wow. >> do you see that? that's me pretending that's the sink. >> seth: that is fantastic. i have not noticed that. you are a really -- you're a really good mime. >> thank you. >> seth: i also want to talk about "lenny letter." you guys started a feminist newsletter together, and you've had fantastic contributors. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. >> thank you so much. >> seth: jane fonda, michelle obama, jennifer lawrence, and it's just fantastic. >> thank you. >> seth: is it true you received praise from an unlikely source that blew your mind? >> yes, i mean, we received the only praise from the only source. >> we were in the writer's room, and i may have been taken a minute to fiddle through twitter. >> seth: sure. we all do it. >> because we got to calm down the brain. and i was scrolling through a nice -- i literally stopped the room cold and said, "khloe kardashian just tweeted at us about lenny."
1:11 am
and the room was like, "wow! that's so great." we were hugging so excited, and then we couldn't get back to work for the rest of the day. >> the whole day. >> seth: you just couldn't get the khloe kardashian buzz out? >> no, like, the writers were like, should we get back to work?" we were just like, "i just don't -- i don't think so." >> we don't have any more in us. >> and it meant so much just because we both love her act. >> seth: yeah. >> she's the best kardashian. >> seth: look, you don't -- you do not have -- >> am i right? [ cheers ] >> and, by the way, that's not -- >> i love them all. >> that's not a throwing kardashian shade. she's just for us. she's the peek kardashian experience. >> yeah. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> and just, honestly, for her to be psyched about what we're doing because we love her app, and it inspires us. and now, we're both going to get memory foam bath mats. >> yeah. >> seth: great. [ laughter ] i had a gutting -- i'm glad we're talking about her. i had a gutting thing happen today. i was supposed to go out to l.a. and be a guest on "cocktails with kourtney." >> khloe. >> khloe. >> seth: khloe, sorry. [ laughter ] >> what is wrong with you? >> we put -- oh, no, and then -- >> seth: they cancelled it. she cancelled it.
1:12 am
>> she cancelled it? >> seth: yeah, she cancelled it. i didn't want to make -- >> why do you cancel your show? >> seth: i think because she just has other things to do. >> self-cancellation is a pretty baller move. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> you know -- >> seth: and, so -- >> we did it. we self-cancelled! >> seth: you self-cancelled? >> we self-cancelled. >> seth: so i'm gutted that i won't be there, but now, a little relieved because i obviously would have, at some point, called her the wrong name. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> we're also -- now that you know us, and you know that we're going to be best friends with her, we can all hang out. >> seth: that's how you guys think. you are the new bridge, and it will be more natural than showing up somewhere with cameras. >> totally, like every weekend, we're gonna be having cocktails with khloe. >> and something that makes me angry is, like, sometimes we'll instagram about khloe, you know, once or twice a day. and people will be like, "that's not -- those kardashians aren't what you represent!" and we're like, "well, they're, like, awesome entrepreneurs who are all about sisterhood and connection, and so -- >> yeah, it is. >> and their family is amazing. >> seth: yeah.
