tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC October 7, 2021 11:35pm-12:37am PDT
ama: thank you for watching. dan: we appreciate your time. >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- ellen pompeo -- henry winkler -- and music from billy idol. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: hi, everyone, thank you. ♪ thank you, i appreciate it. hi, welcome. thanks, fellas. very nice. i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. [ cheers and applause ] we are coming to you from our home in los angeles where the spirits are very high right now after a glorious night for dodgers fans last night. [ cheers and applause ] and a terrible one for st. louis.
if you didn't watch it, the dodgers prevailed in one of the most exciting wild card finishes ever. a walk-off home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, the whole thing. and it's funny because you think of baseball along with hot dogs and apple pie -- a very old-timey american sport. but the game last night, if you thought it was exciting in english, wait until you hear it in russian, korean, and japanese. [ speaking foreign language ] [ speaking foreign language ] [ speaking foreign language ] >> jimmy: take that, soccer! [ cheers and applause ] that's fun. the best part is -- those guys could be screaming anything. they could be screaming "next time i see you, i am gonna bite you on that little pink ass!"
[ laughter ] we would have no idea. that's the beauty of other languages. after the game, the champagne and goggles came out. dodgers starting pitcher max scherzer seemingly consumed quite a bit of that champagne as you will see in this unusually drunken and shirtless post-game interview. >> tell me, how are you feeling? it looked to me like you were uncomfortable the entire night. >> yeah, there -- sorry. there, i farted -- no, sorry. in the fourth i felt like -- i got in direction better with my -- with my elbow. and so i felt like from then, i was starting my fastball to my slider, so at that point that's when i felt like i started executing pitches better. but hats off to the cardinals for their ability to, you know, spoil pitchers, foul off pitches. just extend at-bats. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i was waiting for the
theme song to "cops" to kick in. [ applause ] my wife is from st. louis. last night, we're watching the game. i told her scherzer is from the town she grew up in -- chesterfield, missouri. she goes "oh, my god, i used to babysit him." i said "really?" she goes "no." [ laughter ] and that's why her team lost. it's called karma. [ laughter ] so if anyone in st. louis is upset, my wife, molly, is to blame for last night. [ laughter ] so the dodgers are in the playoffs where they will face their most hated rival, and vice versa, the giants. l.a. at san francisco. tomorrow night. in san francisco, fans will not have to be vaccinated to go to the game. but here in l.a., fans will have to show their vaccination cards or a recent negative test. the l.a. city council yesterday voted in favor of a new ordinance to require proof of vaccination at indoor establishments like restaurants, museums, dave's, busters, et cetera. [ laughter ] proof of vaccination will even be required to enter coffee shops. see, now this is where it gets serious. when you're forced to choose between getting a vaccine you don't trust injected into your
bloodstream or coffee. i don't know what people are going to do. [ laughter ] hair salons are on the list too. you hear that, anti-vaxxers? hope you still have that flowbee. [ laughter and applause ] the decision was almost unanimous. the council voted in favor of the new ordinance 11-2, after which the 11 made sure to stay far away from the 2. [ laughter ] obviously, children who are too young to get the vaccine are exempt from the new restrictions. which is funny. kids can go where adults can't. it's gonna be weird when we see a 50-year-old stopping a sixth grader outside 7-eleven and say, "dude, will you buy me some beer?" [ laughter and applause ] today, by the way, is a special day, it's the 25th anniversary of fox news today. that's right. fox news is now old enough to rent a car, fill it with immigrants, and claim it's heading to your grandma's house to bury her alive. laugh they've been celebrating all day over at mordor. this morning, "fox and friends"
had a little birthday circle jerk at a diner in greenville, south carolina. you know when they do that, they show up at a breakfast spot to see what the people eating pancakes are thinking? well, turns out they're pretty excited about this special day. >> why is it that you feel like here we are celebrating our 25th anniversary with this channel that's so important? >> well, the border crossers, too. nobody makes mention of a lot of things. but i know for a fact, these people coming across the border, and i know because i have cattle. hoof and mouth disease, the spores can stay on a person for three months. if they don't take a bath. and these people don't look like they've taken a bath. so are they bringing hoof and mouth disease in here to the united states? >> obviously not to mention covid, which is an issue that many people have pointed out. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: well, happy birthday, fox. if that wasn't fox news in a nutshell, i don't know what is. [ cheers and applause ]
that sums it all up right there. but i guess -- think whatever you like about fox news. i guess with all the problems we have in this country right now, sometimes it's just nice to turn on a channel and escape reality. you know? [ laughter ] i'm not sure if this is a coincidence or just a gift from rupert murdoch, but today also happens to be vladimir putin's birthday. vladimir putin turned 69 today. he's been president of russia since 1999 and will continue to be long after he is dead. [ laughter ] his head will be placed in a jar for all to fear. and while putin is unquestionably one of the world's most corrupt and ruthless leaders, the man knows how to look good. and now you can look good too, thanks to his line of shoes for smaller-than-average dictators. >> being short person is thing of past. go to vladdy sky heels for wear. don't be behind average-sized teenager again, or room full wo
little when you know deep inside you are big. with 35-centimeter heel say loud and clear, i am not child or troll. get confidence you need to look leaders in eye when you lie about big plutonium to enemies. >> are you confident? >> i am confident. >> the future came here. >> the future is here! >> maybe he weren't tall? maybe vladdy's sky heels for men. >> available at cccvs. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: happy birthday, vladamir. i hope your food taster enjoys the cake. i wonder if donald trump called him today? they really do have a lot in common. there's a new report from the senate judiciary committee that says donald trump directly pressured the justice department, which is supposed to be an independent entity, to
help him overturn the results of the election, not once, but nine times. trump really thought he could get away with throwing out the vote. he told people at the doj, "you guys aren't following the internet the way i do." which i assume means they aren't googling, "mushroom. penis. normal?" over and over again. [ laughter and applause ] fortunately, lawyers at the department of justice threatened to resign en masse if he replaced the attorney general who refused to do his dirty work with one of his cronies who presumably would. he's such a karen, isn't he? [ laughter ] let me speak to the attorney general! he won't? well, does he have a supervisor? put him on the phone! of course, there was no acknowledgement of this attempted coup, and that's what it was, from his fellow republicans. senator chuck grassley's office this morning issued the gop version of the report which says, "trump listened to his senior advisers and he followed their advice and recommendations." which as nice way of saying he wanted to overthrow the government but the lawyers wouldn't let him. [ laughter ] it's very frustrating. it really is. there's no accountability
anymore. it feels like we're drowning in bad news lately. between covid and the climate crisis and everyone fighting all the time. it's getting increasingly difficult to see the good in anything. but tonight we're going to try with help from the silver lining singers. [ cheers and applause ] so here's how this will work. i will tell you about a news item, for instance, this. social distancing in schools has left a lot of children feeling isolated without human touch. ♪ but they don't have lice yeah yeah ♪ ♪ the kids they don't have lice ♪ ♪ we've said it once we've said it twice those dirty kids they don't have lice ♪ ♪ hallelujah! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that feels kind of

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: all right, okay. this one is really bad. there's a massive oil spill off the coast of southern california, dumped 144,000 gallons of oil into the pacific ocean just about 20 mills from where we are right now. ♪ now there is so much parking at the beach ♪ ♪ do do ♪ ♪ no one's here unfold your chair and you can put your blanket down ♪ ♪ just anywhere and you can stretch out and take off your top ♪ ♪ you won't see a cop cause there's no one at the beach ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: all right, okay. let me hit you with one more. the future doesn't look bright, and if things don't change, children born in 2020 will see a significant spike in climate disasters, disasters like flooding. ♪ go buy some new rain boots ♪ >> jimmy: wildfires. ♪ no more bears ♪ >> jimmy: hurricanes.

>> jimmy: how are you? >> hi, i'm great. hi, people, it's so nice to be here. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: sparkling in pinstripes. >> thank you, thank you. i thought i better go all out for you. the last time i was in the living room in my pa jams. >> jimmy: that's right. >> the appearance is not the same. >> jimmy: it's not the same. hair tinsel, do you have any of that? >> no, but your friend does. hi, happy birthday! >> jimmy: i do want to mention the last time you were here. something happened the last time you here, and at the time i didn't realize it, but now looking back, it's very funny to look at. > what was it? i don't remember. >> jimmy: i'll tell you what happened. >> okay. >> jimmy: so on the show, it was the night of the show, you were here, meredith grey had collapsed in a parking lot. >> oh, goodness, not again. >> jimmy: woke up to this vision of mcdreamy, of patrick dempsey, right? >> yeah. >> jimmy: and then we talked about that. and then i made a prediction
that -- your reaction seemed odd to me at the time. but now i understand it. because my prediction, which was a secret, was exactly right, let's take a look. >> maybe you're in a coma or something like that? wouldn't that be -- would you like that if you got to be in a coma and sleep for half a season? >> huh? [ laughter ] >> maybe i hit on it there, i don't know. >> jimmy: i did hit on it there. >> you did. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: at the time you were like, oh no! wow, i was finally right about something. [ laughter ] that's so exciting to me. >> let's tell molly. >> jimmy: i have a question about how it works behind the scenes. now you're in a coma for almost the whole season, right? it wasn't half the season. it's almost the whole season. do you have to lay there in all the scenes? do you come to work and lay there? >> no. >> jimmy: no? >> no, they made a doll. which i actually got in big i tweeted about the doll. then i got in big trouble. >> jimmy: why?
>> because, you know, they said you're ruining the illusion for the audience. i'm like, the audience couldn't possibly think that's me. it's this latex doll. have you ever had the -- a cast made? >> jimmy: yeah, i did have that done once. >> it's brutal. >> jimmy: it's weird, it's uncomfortable, yeah. >> they basically cover your head in latex and papier-mache, and it feels like it lasts forever. >> jimmy: straws up your nose, yeah. >> terrible. i think what happens is with the lights and the heat, over time, that latex degrades. >> jimmy: oh. >> o the doll kept looking worse and worse. [ laughter ] and so i don't know, whatever episode it was, it's starting not to look like me. at first it looked really -- like gas scary, i couldn't look at it, it was crazy. then it just starts looking worse and worse, like meredith's not looking so good. [ laughter ] that's a doll, that's not me, i'm gorgeous. the doll, she needs help. [ applause ] >> jimmy: in your defense, though, if a person is in a coma, it's not like they get better looking along the way.
>> yeah, no, i know. i know, but you know. i'm an actor, ego. >> jimmy: what became of the doll? do you have it? >> i don't know. no, i don't have it. i'm sure it's -- >> jimmy: it would be fun for halloween, you could have a lot of fun with that thing. kids open the door? agghh! you fall right out. >> that's true but my kids might be scarred for life. >> jimmy: yeah, that's their problem. [ laughter ] now i want to make a prediction for this season, all right? >> okay, yes. >> jimmy: i'm going to be watching you very closely. >> i bet. >> jimmy: i predict meredith grey will get married this season. and i'm going to add, to kanye west! [ laughter and applause ] playing himself. a lot of people think this is going to be your last season. >> do they? >> jimmy: yeah, and i think you added fuel to that fire. >> do i? >> jimmy: you did. >> do i add fuel to any fire? >> jimmy: this says a lot about a lot of different people, but i'm going to -- you tweeted this. >> oh, jimmy.
>> jimmy: someone found -- someone named carol said, i'm crying because she noticed that you're wearing, in the show, the same shirt last night that you were wearing in the pilot of the show. is it the same shirt? or does it just look like -- that shirt kind of looks a little like this shirt too. [ laughter ] maybe there's something here. >> it is the same shirt. >> jimmy: it is the same shirt? >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: they hung on to the shirt or got a new one? >> i think they hung on to it. i think all that stuff is property of abc studios. they own -- us. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, in your case, with that doll -- >> you too, jimmy. >> jimmy: yeah, i guess so. i think they just have my head, which is worse. so this is -- does this mean something? other than that carol is completely crazy? [ laughter ] >> no, actually, we did -- it's very specific. it was my idea to pay homage to many things, many different
seasons, and to give the audience things to watch out for. >> jimmy: you're getting sentimental, is that what's happening? >> i'm not sentimental at all. >> jimmy: is there a reason for that? interesting. wow. >> but it's working, because they're seeing things. >> jimmy: yeah this woman carol, though. [ laughter ] i mean, she should be, like along with dog the bounty hunter on that search right now, right? [ laughter ] >> she should. >> jimmy: this is quite an eye she has. >> it really is. it's quite an eye. i have to say. >> jimmy: is carol a real person, or did you plant that? [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> no. >> jimmy: no? okay, all right. 3 >> but it's crazy. you know what's funny is most -- some of the easter eggs, your -- >> jimmy: oh, there's more? okay, good. >> yes. and i've come up with the idea -- so i even look for them because it was just my idea. i didn't necessarily say, let's do this. i wasn't specific about it. >> jimmy: okay. >> so when that shirt showed up on my wardrobe rack, i said, this is the same shirt?
>> jimmy: you remembered the shirt? >> i did, i remembered the shirt, which is rare, i don't remember much. >> jimmy: wow, so you don't even know what the easter eggs are going to be? >> no, i don't. >> jimmy: we will rely on carol for that. [ laughter ] >> carol, yes, yeah. >> jimmy: all right, we're going to take a break. we'll be right back. ellen pompeo is with us," grey's anatomy" thursday nights here on abc. we'll be back.

"have you killed me?" "no, no, you're still alive." i'm very happy. >> jimmy: all right, good. we actually got some information here, i think. >> that's it, that's it. >> jimmy: because they had such an interesting relationship. the teacher and the student. >> yes. >> jimmy: and the plays and everything. >> it is amazing.

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah. it sounds -- [ applause ] can i be honest? it sounds like the worst idea ever, it really sounds like a bad idea, and i've told bill the title is terrible," barry." it could be about anything. >> yes, really. barry schwartz. he's a dentist.

galaxy." >> it is the end of a trilogy but lynn oliver, my partner and i, have written it also as stand-alone. if you don't want to read the other two, you could read this and be just satisfied. so okay, so this story, he's an alien, he's 13 years old. and he has a great sense of smell and taste and feelings. but it's cut off at 13 because the head of his planet doesn't want anybody to be a nuisance. his grandmother, grandma wrinkles, is 9 high pressure years old. she is the head mechanic for the star fleet of their planet. she builds him a ship out of used parts. he flies to the only address they know on the earth, the back lot of universal studios. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: and becomes a hollywood star? >> he then -- i don't know how this happened -- >> jimmy: have you and lynn been eating gummies by any chance? [ laughter ] >> no.
but lynn, aside from writing books, was also a producer of television and a creator of tv shows. and so we took what we knew. we took what we knew children love, which is stardom and the red carpet and limousines and outer space. and we put them together. >> jimmy: okay, i think you answered the gummy question, yeah, for sure. [ laughter ] you're right, though, it's fun. >> yeah. >> jimmy: i'm going to give this to my daughter, she would like to read a book like this. >> i hope so, it's funny. we like to think that we write the entertainment. we are not the assignment. and he becomes the star of a sitcom on universal lot because, as the alien, he already has the costume. >> jimmy: so like mork in a way, in some way. >> in a way, yeah. >> jimmy: that's very nice. and i think you've written now -- >> 37. 37 novels with lynn. >> jimmy: 37. [ cheers and applause ] >> yeah. >> jimmy: wow. that's like -- i don't think there are even 37 books about
donald trump that have been written right now. >> but they're coming. >> jimmy: it's very close, yeah, very close. >> they're coming. >> jimmy: is it true that when you were on "happy days," i mean, and so many people -- we think a lot of people watch shows now, but at that time it was, i don't know how many -- >> there were only three channels. >> jimmy: three channels, and then 13, pbs on top. but could you go out? were you able to -- >> no. >> jimmy: -- be in public at all? >> it was really scary. i mean, people wanted, you know -- they thought i was the fonz. so the four of us -- ron howard, don most, ansom williams and i, went to dallas. during weekend or a break filming the show, we would go out and promote the show. we're in dallas, we're at the flagship of neiman marcus. 25,000 people show up. >> jimmy: wow. >> and they are standing between us and the limo. [ laughter ]
donnie most got a little nervous. i said, don't worry. i walked to the crowd, to the edge of the crowd, and i said, "all right, look. you're not gonna touch us, you gonna part like the red sea." [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: they did? >> so we're walking. as we're walking, one kid said, "oh, he's so short!" >> jimmy: what? [ laughter ] >> i turn to him and i said, hey, [ bleep ] you. [ cheers and applause ] he then said, "he's so cool." [ laughter ] but i'm telling you, it was madness. it was an amazing experience. >> jimmy: you had some unbelievable career. >> yeah. >> jimmy: yet i would imagine, even with all that you have done, being in this new movie "the french dispatch," directed
by wes anderson, who hasn't made a new movie for quite some time, seven years or something like that. that has to be a life highlight too. >> i think if wes anderson was a restaurant, he would be a five-star michelin star. >> jimmy: yeah, sure. >> he is the top -- now i get called to be in a wes anderson movie. >> jimmy: he just called you? >> unbelievable. >> jimmy: yeah. >> so now my wife and i get on a plane, we fly to france, we get off the plane, we get on a train, we go for three hours to the south, we then stand for three hours while i'm being -- they make every bit of your costume, except my hat. >> jimmy: wow. >> now -- >> jimmy: why not the hat? >> i don't know why. >> jimmy: that would be the first thing i would make is the hat. >> yes. you know what, i'm going to tell him that. [ laughter and applause ] when you're in his movie, you better make his hat! i am bob balaban's brother,
adrien brody is our nephew, he is an art dealer. benicio del toro is the artist, who is so delicious. >> jimmy: he's great, i saw the movie, it's really good, yeah. >> we're standing there. wes anderson, who wears a tweed suit and a yellow scarf every day, he said, henry. i went, oh my god, wes anderson is going to give me a direction now. [ laughter ] yes, sir? could you move a millimeter to your left i can! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: and that was that? wow. you know what, that's -- when it comes to the masters, it's really about the little things. you know? >> he is in charge of everything. i'm not kidding. he is -- and then he runs the most incredible set. there are no trailers. you're in a room that is built out of velour.
you get a baguette with some ham and cheese and a thermos of soup for lunch. you all change and you get made up in the same room at the same time. tilda swinton, benicio, bob, me. and then when it's over, you go back to the hotel and a chef, his chef, makes everybody dipper. >> jimmy: wow. >> oh my gosh. it was unbelievable. [ applause ] >> jimmy: unbelievable. oh my goodness. wow. don most wasn't there with you? [ laughter ] >> do you know what? they asked don to be in the mov movie. >> jimmy: they did? >> but he was singing with his combo. >> jimmy: oh, yeah, all right. you know what he's a busy guy. >> and he couldn't make it. >> that's malph for you. it's great to see you, thank you for coming. >> i'm so happy to be here. >> jimmy: two great things.
