>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight, chris pratt, tom holland, huey lewis, this week in unnecessary censorship, and music from sam hunt. and now with all due respect jimmy kimmel! [cheers and applause] ♪ >> jimmy: hi, eve i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming. it's very nice. you know, the clock is ticking right now. we're like, 24 minutes away from valentine's day. tomorrow night, couples of all ages, types and sizes will go
out of town, get rushed through dinner at a restaurant and then on to the most popular sexual position of all, obligatory. if you're smart, you'll do what i do on valentine's. you don't have to make a big deal out of it, you don't have to spend a lot of money. just hand your wife a single rose and say "this means you get to stay." i thought you loved the bachelor! this is something i learned today. you know those little candy hearts that have the messages on them that taste like a mixture between rubber and chalk? originally, they were called wedding candies. now we call them sweethearts. they were invented by a man in the mid-1800s by a man named d d chel cha daniel chase, who invented a machine that stamped messages on the hearts, but the messages in the 1800s, were different, your blanket has pox, richmond has
fallen, train's been blown up. bear ate little joe. you're my favorite prostitute and cobblepot. the cobblepot talk got people going back then. former white house press secretary sean spicer has you all hooked up. there's a personal celebrity video website. they'll make videos for people, called "cameo." for a new low price, your special lady or fella will love you in ways you never thought possible. >> hey, guys, it's sean spicer with an amazing deal. this month, for then ti entire h of february, my videos that normally cost $400 are 50% off. $199 is giving to give you the best valentine's gift ever. >> jimmy: will it, though? i don't know. he's doing it to raise money for the independence fund to raise
money fior veterans, but gettin a video message from sean spicer seems like better way to say you want a divorce. what does president trump get the first lady, melania, and the second lady, lindsey graham, what does he get them? flowers? chocolate, taco bowls? he is a man of great passion. he cannot contain emotions of any kind. and in fact, he celebrates valentine's all yearlong with a major focus on hugging and kissing. >> there was hugging. there was almost kissing. i just love the guy. he was hugging me, kissing me. the heads of these companies are coming up and hugging and kissing me. she was hugging and kissing. hugging and kissing. hugging and kissing and crying. they're all hugging and kissing. everyone's crying. hugging and kissing and crying and laughing. i said wait a minute, i just said hello to the guy 15 minutes
ago, and he's kissing me. >> jimmy: if that doesn't get you in the mood, i don't know what is going to. so today trump's attorney general william barr made an unexpected statement. four prosecutors for the justice department resigned after barr oevl oe overruled them and said he would lower the seven to nine years they recommended for roger stone who is convicted of lying to congress, witness tampering and obstruction of justice. this came after trump angrily tweeted that he thought stone's sentence recommendation was unfair. barr told abc news that he thought it's time for the president to stop tweeting about the department of justice criminal cases. in other words, he's like, listen, moron, how am i supposed to do your dirty work if you keep telling people about it. and some people are applauding him. i think it's a pr move.
ba barr did this without trump's okay. if he said this without trump's permission, he would be covered in tweet vomit, covered in little orange fist marks all over his face. john kelly is also speaking out. last night in new jersey, john kelly defended the newly-fired lieutenant colonel alexander vindman, who testified against the president and criticized the president's position on many subjects, which is all well and good, but it's now a year since he left the white house. this is like a smoke detector that goes off after your house burns down. trump lashed back at kelly on twitter and is continuing to unload on former mayor michael bloomberg. it appeared michael bloomberg has gotten under the president's trumplestiltskin. he tweeted that mini smimike iss 5'4" mass of dead energy.
bloomberg replied, we know many of the same people in new york. behind your back they laugh at you and call you a carniva a caa bau barking clown. that is going to make him mad. i minean, that's -- if i was mi bloomberg, and i had $61 billion, which is what he has, this is how i would get in trump's head. i'd buy every ad on fox news from now until november. i would ruin his precious h hannity time. maybe instead of an election we should put these goal old billionaires on a jungle island with sharp sticks and force them to hunt each other. put it on pay-per-view. all proceeds go to the homeless. it's a good idea. [cheers and applause] it's settled then. i don't know if we have any baseball fans. but the houston astros had a press conference, jim crane
addressed the media to answer for the sign-stealing plot that helped them beat the dodgers in the world series in 2017 and the yankees in the playoffs. >> mr. crane, what do you have to say to the yankees and teams that you beat in '17? >> listen, the yankees had a few comments out there. you know, our opinion is, you know, that this didn't impact the game. we had a good team. we won the world series, and we'll leave it at that. >> jimmy: yeah, of course you'll leave it at that. you candidate cheating. and what a half-astros apology that was. the idea that the batters on the astros, knowing, the pitchers knowing what they were going to throw before they threw the pitches didn't impact the game is ludicrous. fortunately, one reporter followed up. >> did you say this didn't impact the game? and what do you mean by that? >> i didn't say it didn't impact the game. >> jimmy: you didn't?
what about two seconds ago when you did? >> isn't sign stealing a distinct advantage for the hitter? doesn't it automatically impact competition? >> it could possibly do that. it could possibly not. >> jimmy: yep, those are the two options that, that's the old, there are fine people on both sides argument. i want to say thank you to president trump where no one has to take responsibility for anything again. luckily, there as still one athletic event we can count on. that is the westminster dog show. they had the 144th dog show wrapped up tuesday in new york. we have an annual tradition here. every year we have our graphics department painstakingly remove the dogs from the westminster dog show, and here now is the 2020 installment of westminster without dogs.

and periodically do something, so when you inevitably forget, she'll go, oh, well, they did that thing in march. >> jimmy: that's nice. it's an insurance policy. >> it is, it's insurance. >> jimmy: this is your first valentine's day with your bride, as man and wife. >> oh, yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: so you really have to deliver. [cheers and applause] >> yeah, i got to deliver, but i also knew that i was going to be basically working through this weekend, promoting the movie, so we celebrated our valentine's day last weekend. >> jimmy: oh, you did? that's good. that's always easier, better to get a dinner reservation. >> completely, but i did get her a little something. >> jimmy: oh, you did. >> for tomorrow. >> jimmy: for tomorrow. >> for tomorrow. >> jimmy: and now i guess the splice surprise is ruined. >> oh, she doesn't watch your show, secret's safe! >> jimmy: when do you start
jurassic park again? >> very soon. >> jimmy: how do you get ready for that? >> you starve. >> jimmy: you starve? >> yeah, i starve. >> jimmy: why do you have to starve? >> well, because i have to put myself on a really strict code. because i'm 40 now. so if i eat like, i don't know, a starburst, i gain like 15 pounds. >> jimmy: you can't eat a starburst? >> no. >> jimmy: there's no such thing as dinosaurs anymore. they make those come out of nowhere. can't they do that with your body? can't they just cgi you? why would you even burden yourself with this? you know what i'm saying? if there could be a t-rex. >> yes, i know what you're saying! oh, my god! >> jimmy: you didn't think of that, did you? >> yeah! >> jimmy: maybe it's something to talk to your agent about or steven spielberg or something like that. >> they're pumping a lot of money into the thing i'm not
running from. why can't i, why can't they dial this in, too? >> jimmy: i think they can. i think we've solved a lot of problems. i think you can eat a lot of candy now, tomorrow. >> you just cost universal a lot of money. >> jimmy: on parks and recreation, were you encouraged to be pudge ey on that show? >> i was. i remember, in the first couple seasons, just unintentionally, i had gotten a little fat, and i was watching the episodes, i was like, oh, god, chris, you've really let yourself go. and then i was, like, this is some of the funniest stuff you've ever done. and i went to the, our creator, and i said i want to gain like another 30, 40 pounds. and he was like, okay. and so i did. and then it became a challenge. everyone wanted to see how much i could eat. i was, i remember a scene. this is funny. there was a restaurant in parks
and rec. called the jurassic fork. >> jimmy: yeah, right, oddly. >> that was where we would go to eat. they gave us dinosaur-sized portions. i didn't have anything to say in the scene. so inevitably, i wanted to get some screen time, so i decided i would eat one rack of ribs per take. and if the camera happened to catch me i would be inhaling ribs. >> jimmy: the whole rack. >> the whole rack. the whole rib. i went through the equivalent of six pigs. >> jimmy: yes. >> i dined on the ribs of six different pigs. and every time, after every take, nick opperman, whose lauo is like this -- it tickles me to no end. i knew it was making nick laugh. i was making myself sick, but i had 12 racks of ribs, and then at lunch because our catering
company was ate ribs. i got a big laugh. i think i gave myself, like -- [cheers and applause] >> jimmy: yeah, you shaved. >> thank you. >> jimmy: you shaved maybe three and a half years off your life to make nick laugh. >> the years i shaved off my life for the boring one. >> jimmy: we're going to do something a little bit different tonight. >> great. >> jimmy: we thought it would be fun to open the interview up to the audience and have a little bit of a q&a. >> that's nice. >> jimmy: because there are a lot of people who have questions for you. that guy right there, look at that. hi there. >> hi. i know you've worked a lot with dinosaurs. i was wondering, could you tell me what a velociraptor smells like? my guess is that it's chicken. >> okay, well, i mean the dinosaurs in "jurassic world"
are all cgi. >> jimmy: yeah. >> so -- >> so you don't know? thanks a lot. >> jimmy: okay, sorry about that. we have another, yes, this lady right there. hi there, what's your name? >> hi, my name is donna. i think you're so talented. >> jimmy: oh, thank you. oh, chris. >> i just think you're super, and you're so handsome, too. i was just wondering, what was your inspiration for the song "hip to be square"? >> donna, do you think that i am huey lewis? i believe he's the next guest. >> jimmy: yeah. >> okay. is he going to be here soon? >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, he'll be here next. did you have a question for chris pratt? >> i don't, no. . >> jimmy: okay. all right. this gentleman right here. what's your name? >> hi, hey.

it's so personal and so creative, as a young man, dan and his brother, they lost their father, and dan found some audiotapes that apparently had his father's voice. he'd only seen a picture of his father but didn't know what his father sounded like because he never met him, having died before he was born. so he went through the audiotapes, pored through them, and his father said hello and good-bye. >> jimmy: people are already crying. >> yeah. >> it's a comedy. >> jimmy: it is. >> it's, and so that story is really the genesis of these two brothers who go on this magical quest in a fantasy world to seek out the father they never found and to go on a quest to bring him back for one day. so it's written by a director who went through this with his brother, and what's so moving to me is that his brother did not know what this movie was about. and he, it's essentially a love
letter to his older brother. >> jimmy: wow. >> and he showed the movie to his brother. it's truly incredible. it chokes me up thinking about it. but it's very emotional, but just like a "up", or any of the picks a pixar movies in that the tone, and the title, in disney's pixar, it does make you laugh, moves you to the edge of your seat. it's beautiful and emotional. >> jimmy: and you guys are brothers in the movie. did you tape together? >> a couple times, yeah. >> jimmy: do you feel like you are brothers? >> absolutely. >> it feels like it. >> jimmy: you both have brothers. and tom has two younger brothers. something is always going on with those two characters. are three with you tonight? >> they're not actually. their 21st birthday tomorrow, and i'm out the house. so i might come home, and it's been burned to the ground.
>> jimmy: twin valentine's baby. >> which is great, because valentine's day is now their day. >> jimmy: what are you expected, as a big movie star now, to get your two younger brothers for their 21st, twin birthday. go ahead. >> what did i get them? >> jimmy: mm-hm. >> i bought my brother sam a pooen piano, because he loves playing the piano. and i brought my brother harry, rolex. i went with my parents. it's a big birthday. they'll keep those for the rest of their lives, it will be very memorable. and it's a big day for them. but i already got their presents, though. i didn't just ruin. >> jimmy: well, the movie's great. and it comes out on march 6th. it's called

>> jimmy: explain why you're not singing tonight. >> i was diagnosed with a thing called men yay's disease that they don't, i lost 80% of my right ear, and two years ago my left ear went out. although it fluctuates, from, you know, sort of mildly bad to horrible. and when it's mildly bad, i'm okay. i wear hearing aids, and i might could sing again, but i don't know that yet. i haven't been able to stabilize long enough, so that's the object. >> jimmy: so for many years, you were singing with hearing in only one ear. >> yeah. >> jimmy: which i guess is no problem, huh? >> no problem. when i first lost my right ear, i went to this ent guy, and he said, get used to it. i said what do you mean get used to it? i'm a musician. he says hey, bernie wilson had
one ear, jimi hendrix had one ear. i have one ear, and i'm in a barbershop quartet. >> jimmy: you went to an ear doctor who only has one ear? i think i figured out the problem. >> you ever seen a dentist's teeth? they aren't very good either. >> jimmy: you're right, you're actually right on that. so you're dealing with this. >> right. >> jimmy: and you've recorded this album. these songs that you've recorded before you had the problem with your ear. >> yep. >> jimmy: and you've been working on this for quite some time. >> exactly. >> jimmy: and then this is the new album. have your fellow musicians reached out to you? i don't know if people know about this yet. who has reached out to you that made, that shared something with you that stuck with you, stuck with you. sorry, i'm -- >> well, lots of people, lots of fellow musicians and everything, but one, tico torres who's a
buddy of mine. >> jimmy: from bon jovi. >> we've been pals for a while now. when my hearing went out, i hadn't seen him for a couple months. tico's from new jersey, he runs over and says hey, how you doin'? i said not great, tico. i can't hear, i can't play music yet, because i can't hear pitch, it's really terrible. he goes, what are you going to do? so that's my mantra now. >> jimmy: what are you going to do. >> what are you going to do? >> jimmy: there is some wisdom there. you, last night, i interviewed you for an hour at the grammy museum here in l.a. and every time we talked, and we talk a lot, and i feel like people think of you as the "hip to be square" guy, and i feel like people don't really know you at all. you told me a story about, and i'll just kind of get into it. you were just out of high
school. your dad told you, don't go to college. instead, hitchhike through europe. he gave you no money to do that. you stowed away on a plane to get to europe. and then you got to europe. you wind up in north africa, correct? >> yep. >> jimmy: and what happens in north africa? >> well, i played harmonica in the square. went to marrakech. and i played in the square. and i made like, with a hat, you know, played harmonica right next to the snake charmer and the bicyclist, the acrobat. and i'd make like three dierems. i went there for a week or so. we got stoned. >> jimmy: right. >> it was kind of hard to leave, actually. >> jimmy: how long did you wind up staying? >> three months. >> jimmy: three months. >> but then, when i left,
actually, it was a funnier story, hitchhiking, going to go up through portugal, i'm in spain now hitchhiking. and here on the horizon comes a 1925 chevrolet pulling an air stream trailer. >> jimmy: what year is this? >> this is 1968. >> jimmy: the car is old. >> the car's old then! >> jimmy: yeah. >> and the guy stops, and it's an old dutchman. jimmy vanderol. he picks me up. he said where are you going? i said i'm trying to get to portugal. he said that's where i'm going. he liked to drink. so we stopped at every bar on the way. about 10:00 at night, we're on this levee, and there's water everywhere, and suddenly, he water.off the levee and into water's up to the floorboards like that. oh, my gosh. well, he gets out, grabs the fire extinguisher and sprays the distributor, which i didn't
know, i guess, dries everything out. >> jimmy: because you never have drunkenly driven into a levee before. >> true. >> jimmy: that's the sort of thing you learn. >> so now, and he drives straight out. but, when we get to, and he drives straight out, and we're fine. we get to the border of portugal, about 11:30 at night, and i can't find my passport, because it's floated out from the air stream trailer out of my knapsack in the sideboard of the air stream. so i don't have a passport, can't go to portugal. have to go back to seville. >> jimmy: these guys leave without you. >> they leave without me. >> jimmy: great. >> i'm okay. now i hitchhike. first i spend the night that night. i found a little rock band rehearsing that night. sat in with them. showed them a couple tunes. we had a little jam. they let me sleep on the floor. next night i hitchhike tosa veal. i get to the embassy.
it's hard to do hitchhiking wise. and they shut the door in my face basically. they said do you have $20? i said no. they said come back monday with $20. boom, so i go into i meet with a night watchman at a construction site. and i said, can i sleep, i don't speak any english. he doesn't speak any spanish. but we have -- >> jimmy: no, wait, you speak english. >> he didn't speak any english. >> jimmy: right. >> we had this great conversation. we kind of understood each other. and he taught me how to say -- and how to get work and all this stuff and taught me how to say that. so the next day i'm busking again. and these kids come by, these college kids, and oh, my gosh. they're taken with me, and they talked to me. they can speak english, and we talked. and they want to know all about san francisco.
because it's 1968. san francisco's exploded and i know all about it of course. >> jimmy: oh, yeah. >> and i said i got to get a passport. they said what are we going to do? we'll throw you a concert. so i said great. we auditioned for a guitar player. we found this kid from australia named michael, who lived in the outback, but he had one record, and it was kind of a blues record, and i knew a bunch of those songs. so we wood shoulded fshedded fo days. and they put up these posters, they were super artist particular. huey, los blues. so now we have this concert on the college campus, and it's sold out. >> jimmy: how many people? >> 1200 people. sold out. and the first band, we have an opening act, they're called
nuevos tempos. choreographed, wardrobe, unbelievably great, and i'm thinking, oh, my god, are going to die here. so our little stage went out in the front. there's a little pod that you'd go out. and we had two chairs and two microphones. he's got acoustic guitar and i've got harmonica. and we go out, they announce us. we go out, there's applause, nice applause. kind of polite applause. and then, pin-drop quiet. we start the first song. bump, bump, da, da, da. i'm playing along. and you can hear a pin drop. it is so quiet. and i'm thinking to myself as i'm playin' the song, oh, my god, we are bombing. we are so bombing. and i finish the song, and the place erupts in tumultuous applause. and i thought --
[ applause ] i'm going to do this. >> jimmy: this is a clip we found. >> huey lewis. >> oh, no. ♪ ♪ [ laughter ] >> oh, my god. [ laughter ] >> oh! >> jimmy: that's a young huey lewis, huey lewis and the news, "weather" is out now. we'll be back sam hunt. >> dicky: the jimmy kimmel live concert series is presented by the 2020 gle. mercedes benz, the best or nothing.
fisn't just about polar bears. we're fighting for our lives, we're fighting for clean air and clean water. that's why i wrote the law to send billions from polluters to communities suffering the most. and only one candidate for president was with us back then, tom steyer. and he's still fighting for us, pledging to make clean air and clean water a right for everyone, regardless of your zip code. that's the truth. that's tom steyer.
i'm tom steyer and i approve this message. >> dicky: the jimmy kimmel live concert series is presented by mercedes- benz. the best or nothing. >> jimmy: i'd like to thank chris pratt, tom holland and huey lewis. apologies to matt damon, "nightline" is next, but first, this is his album, "southside" here with the song "kinfolks,"
