tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC June 2, 2022 11:35pm-12:37am PDT
dan: that is our rep >> lou: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight, queen latifah, danny ramirez, and music from pusha t, with cleto and the cletones. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: well, thank you. welcome. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. [ cheers and applause ]pthank y big night of basketball in america. thank you. game one -- earlier tonight, game one of the nba finals between the boston celtics and the golden state warriors up in
san francisco. the game aired on abc earlier tonight, which means right now, this show is on mute in hundreds of buffalo wild wings across the country. [ laughter ] they see us, but nobody's listening. [ laughter ] obviously, fans in both the bay area and beantown are excited. two great franchises playing. but it's not just the fans who are excited. the celtics got a nice little shout-out from the coach of the cross-town new england patriots, bill belichick, who's very fired up. >> congratulations to the team, the staff, the organization. great accomplishment. look forward to seeing that play out. >> jimmy: my god, calm down, man, you're going to blow a vein out of your head. [ laughter and applause ] it's almost as if he's giving a toast at his daughter's wedding to o.j. [ laughter and applause ]
that's the tone. earlier tonight, we were on in primetime. our annual nba game night special. adam sandler was our guest. some of the show may have been pre-empted by the president's speech, i'm not sure. joe biden informed the media this morning he would address the nation tonight on the topic of gun violence after a string of mass shootings. everyone agrees that something must be done. republicans would like it to be nothing, i think. but we can't agree on what we need to do. there are many nutty theories being kicked around to distract us from the simple fact that we need to make sure sick individuals don't have easy access to these high-powered guns. but some, like laura ingraham of fox news, would have us believe marijuana is to blame. >> respected medical studies for years have demonstrated that pot use, especially among teens, can trigger psychosis and increase the chance that a young person will develop violent behaviors. >> jimmy: oh, okay. maybe we should make sure those young people don't have ar-15s in their homes. [ cheers and applause ]
that is really a hell of an angle to take. you know you're scraping the bottom of the barrel when you're blaming pot. who can forget the willie nelson killing spree of 1985? [ laughter ] they're coming up with all kinds of nonsensical and just plain made-up crap to create a cloud of uncertainty at a time when we might finally be ready to actually do something about this. garbage-person marjorie taylor greene of georgia -- [ laughter ] has been trying to pin some of the blame in her way on those who support the lgbtq+ community. >> salvador ramos, who was hispanic, clearly had a lot of mental issues going on, as was shown with him wearing eyeliner, cross-dressing. >> jimmy: never happened, not true, it was a fake story from 4chan and you know it. the fact that he's hispanic has nothing to do with anything, but keep going. >> i think some of the most dangerous people in america are
trans terrorists. because these are the people that want to groom your children and talk them into changing their gender. these people are terrorists. they just want you to think that all of a sudden the entire population is steadily turning gay or turning trans, just generation, generation -- probably in about four, five generations, no one will be straight anymore. everyone will be either gay or trans or nonconforming or whatever the list of 50 or 60 different options there are. >> jimmy: and happy pride month to you too, marjorie. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] you vile, disgusting, yellow-headed melted donkey from "shrek." [ laughter ] there has to be a backstory for that. why is she so angry at gay people? marjorie taylor greene believes in a traditional marriage. one husband, one wife, one personal trainer, one tantric
sex guru, and that's that. [ laughter ] sarah palin, who paved the way for nitwits like mtg, is keeping busy, warning viewers of fox news that democrats are trying to wipe them out. >> do you think they want to make life easier for the average person or not? >> absolutely not, they want to wipe out the middle class, the mm and joe six-packs, us peons, they want to wipe us out in tears of influence so that they can have more power. >> jimmy: yeah, says the woman zooming in from a 9,000 square foot home. [ laughter ] joe six-pack. the hypocrisy is they don't try to hide it anymore. i guess they don't need to hide it. nobody seems to notice. donald trump jr., always talking about china, very anti-china, "my father was tough on china." "hunter biden's in bed with china." i happened to be scrolling through his website. because this is what i do. he's got an online store. really some wonderful products. like this. "f" joe biden hat, designed and embroidered in the usa.
you see that right there? okay. well, it may have been designed and embroidered here, but we ordered one of the hats. [ laughter ] boy, you're not going to believe this. it was actually made in -- oh, how about that, china. you won't find that on his website, though. there's a lot of them. here's a "let's go brandon" shirt we bought, designed and printed in the usa, no, sirree. that's nicaragua for you. [ laughter ] just in time for pride month, we've got this, thank you, "let's get biden to quit." lgbt. designed and printed in the usa? yeah. made in? let's see. this one is el salvador, yeah. and finally this lovely sentiment in a world full of alex and be a kyle, i guess rittenhouse, this is made in nicaragua. why doesn't he have the shirts made here? because they cost about 30% more
to have them made here. guillermo, hand me one of our shirts. this is our "jimmy kimmel live." this is the shirt we sell. [ cheers and applause ] that's right. i don't know where the label on this thing is. oh -- yeah. okay, here we go. made where? made in the usa, the united states of america. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ that's right. play something patriotic so i can celebrate! shameless, worthless grifters and leeches is what these people are. [ cheers and applause ] and remember that. because it's the little things. very soon, i don't know if you heard this, americans who are headed to las vegas to get married by elvis may have to come up with a less-interesting plan. because the company that's in charge of elvis presley's brand has ordered wedding chapels in nevada to stop using elvis in their ceremonies. so from now on, if you want
that, you'll have to get married by professional rock 'n' roll king jeweled jumpsuit cape costume man instead. [ laughter ] as if it wasn't already sad enough to be an elvis impersonator. whenever you have a story like this, one of the great things about it is it gives the local news men and women in this country let their creative juices flow. boy did they flow today. >> elvis has left the building, and he might be leaving las vegas for good. >> elvis has left the building. >> elvis has left the building. >> elvis has left the building. >> elvis has left the building. >> wedding chapels in vegas are all shook up. >> the legal filing that has them all shook up. >> some chapels all shook up. >> businesses shook up. >> elvis impersonators are all shook up. >> elvis has left the building. >> elvis has left the building. >> elvis has left the building. >> elvis has left the building. >> elvis has left the building. >> elvis has left the building. >> come on, then. >> i knew it. >> i'm all shook up. [ applause ] >> jimmy: all right, well done, everybody. another home run. there's an experiment that's
starting in canada beginning next year. [ cheers ] fans of experiments or canadian? [ laughter ] could be both, i guess. british columbia is going to become the first canadian province to decriminalize small amounts of cocaine, heroin, mdma, fentanyl, and meth. which happens to be all the ingredients you need to make florida at home. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] they're going to be legal. they're going to try it out for three years and see what happens. i'll tell you what's going to happen. their summer's going to be a lot what's going to happen.t's - [ laughter ] one more thing. for those of you who are here in our audience, you know that we do the show in hollywood, right in the heart of hollywood, on visitors from all over pass by our theater every day. from time to time we enjoy peppering them with questions from reporters. but one of the resourceful guys who works here, tony bamborini i believe is his name, right?
came up with a new way to confuse people. that said, here's the first what was we hope will be many editions of "breaking the news." [ laughter ] >> hollywood, a stinking cesspool of filthy superheroes and clueless tourists. where are you guys from? >> brazil. >> news alert! >> nobody is sure why the deadly swarm of murder hornets have made their hive here on this light post on hollywood boulevard. no, no, no. slowly, just slowly. they smell fear. slowly walk by, slowly, slowly. over half of all children traveling with their parents would rather be with their friends. >> yeah, definitely. >> attractive women dating much, much less attractive men.
a hollywood sitcom trope? or something that affects real-life people? >> tonight we are here on hollywood boulevard talking to very, very high-priced prostitutes about the modern sex issue. the newest trend in holly-weird, child husbands? please continue to scour the area for the assisted living facility peeping tom. he's believed to be riding a bicycle and wearing maroon. please be vigilant. >> still to come -- >> i keep saying the russian new-cue-lar missiles are about to hit los angeles. it's nuclear. 95% of the tour buses in the city test positive for bedbugs, it's time to ask, is the bus worth the bite? oh, hey, guys. >> and this -- >> why your dog has even less time to live than you think.
what's its name? >> ralphie. >> cherish it, cherish it. >> he's healthy. >> not for long. this national cheer for happiness day on hollywood boulevard. >> yeah! >> yay! >> but some people are having a hard time celebrating after the gruesome discoveries here this morning. now we go to b-roll shots, we show the bodies, we show the coroner coming, cover up the bodies, the body parts that are strewn all over the boulevard, those are collected up, the police come, they gather the bodies, see the coroner wagon driving away. all that and my weekend weather after the break. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: all right, thank you. we've got a good show for you tonight. from "top gun: maverick," danny ramirez is here. [ cheers and applause ] we have music from pusha t. and we'll be right back with queen latifah.
even though nearly 500 people have died of overdoses. i'm voting yes on h to recall chesa boudin now. we can't wait one more day when people are dying on our streets. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: hi, there. welcome back to the show. tonight, from "top gun: maverick," danny ramirez is with us. [ cheers and applause ] then later, his album "it's almost dry," produced by kanye and pharrell, debuted at number one. pusha t from the mercedes eq stage. [ cheers and applause ] on sunday night, we're back in primetime for our "jimmy kimmel live: nba finals game night" special with guest dax shepard. that will be before game two on the east coast, after the game on the west coast. join us at whatever time is convenient for you. our first guest tonight is a rapper, actor, equalizer, and
still the only member of the royal family to get a lifetime achievement award from b.e.t. [ laughter ] she co-stars with adam sandler in the new movie, "hustle," opening in theaters tomorrow and on netflix next wednesday. please welcome queen latifah. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: you look great, wow. you really look fantastic, i like that. >> live in studio! [ cheers and applause ] yeah! >> jimmy: i haven't seen you in a long time, i think. >> i know. it has been a very long time. >> jimmy: how are you doing? >> i'm doing very well, how about you? you look good. >> jimmy: i'm doing great. i was thinking about you today. queen elizabeth is having her 70th jubilee. >> i saw that. >> jimmy: do you feel, where's my jubilee? [ laughter ] you've been queen for quite some time now here.
>> i don't know, i feel after 70 years i might have took a vacation or two. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: maybe, sure. is there any camaraderie between queens? do you send her a note or a proclamation? >> we slay one another. [ laughter ] we are queens! i'm just kidding. i'm just kidding. >> jimmy: more of a "game of thrones" style queen, right? >> right? no. >> jimmy: have you met the queen? >> i've not met the queen, not in person. >> jimmy: do you think she knows about you? [ laughter ] >> she seemed cool. >> jimmy: uh-huh? [ laughter ] >> i'm going to figure somebody put her up on who i am by this time. >> jimmy: i would certainly hope so. >> yeah, i think so. i think she would know who i am. you feel me? [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: you love the nba, you love the games, you love basketball in general. who are you rooting for in the series? >> why are you trying to set me up?
i thought we were cool. >> jimmy: do you know players on the teams? >> i know players on the teams, yes, i do. >> jimmy: you're not from san francisco, you're not from boston, these are not your towns. >> yes, but i am bicoastal. kind of west side, a little something-something, then i'm also from jersey. so i'm kind of, you know. >> jimmy: so really -- >> so i stay out of it. >> jimmy: you do stay out of it. [ laughter ] >> i root for everybody. i love this time of year. we're here, we're at the finals now. i've been locked in with the playoffs. and i'm a big steph curry fan. i've been watching him since college. [ cheers and applause ] you know. so that's always exciting to watch how he changed the game, you know, with his playing style. i'm just -- i want to see a good competition. i don't want to see anybody get blown out by 30 points. i want to see nail-biters every game. you know what i mean? [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i wonder, being from new jersey, you could root for any number of teams, being from new jersey. you could root for the nets, the knicks, the 76ers, really, right? >> i mean, i could.
but i'm definitely a nets fan. >> jimmy: nets. >> been a lifelong nets and knicks fan. i'm kind of local teams when it comes to that. >> jimmy: would you go to the games as a kid? >> i didn't get to go to games as a kid. i didn't really have -- we didn't have that kind of money in the house. >> jimmy: right, yeah. >> no nosebleeds. i mean, i watched a lot of games. i used to live over a barbershop. and one of the mets players, darryl dawkins, who's the first to ever break a bat boy -- >> jimmy: one of the greatest, >> one of the greatest of all time, used to come get his hair cut downstairs. >> jimmy: really? >> the word would go out in the neighborhood, darryl dawkins is downstairs! you see the vans roll up, parked in front. we had a normal, kind of lower middle class neighborhood in east orange. this big superstar, who was a giant, you know, who was super cool, comes to get his hair cut downstairs and speak to everybody. he kind of became part of the neighborhood. >> jimmy: i remember that poster. he was like -- it was holding a rim, a net.
as if he'd just torn it down. >> yes. had that poster on my wall. >> jimmy: you did? >> yes. >> jimmy: chocolate thunder. >> chocolate thunder. >> jimmy: the best nickname ever. >> whoo! >> jimmy: i know something about that. did you know how he got that nickname, chocolate thunder? >> i didn't, i'll ask, jimmy. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: stevie wonder gave him that nickname. >> my favorite musician. >> jimmy: your favorite musician gave your favorite basketball player his nickname. >> are you serious? >> jimmy: yes. that's what darryl said. >> i've got to have that special piece of trivia in my game. in my brain. i'm going to keep that. thank you so much. >> jimmy: if i bring it up again, which i probably will, pretend you never heard before. >> like, you know who gave darryl dawkins -- >> jimmy: spread it around, act like you own it. you're more than welcome to take that. >> did you hear the one about darryl dawkins and stevie wonder?

who wanted to get in. >> worse than nba players, right? >> jimmy: way worse. >> because they swear they can play in the league. [ laughter ] and they cannot play in the league. but this is like their moment, you know what i mean? and they want to show everybody. and they just, like -- >> jimmy: when you do something like that and you have -- well, as you said, the word moment. this to me is a moment. shawn kemp. >> oh, god. >> jimmy: great player, played for the supersonics. you were -- let's take a look. >> queen latifah has been a huge force in this game for the bricklayers. on the offensive end -- and now look at this, she's calling for a one on one with shawn kemp. >> take her on, baby! battle of the sexes. >> oh! queen latifah with the steal! oh! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that was 1994. >> 1994. god, i was 24. that was for entertainment purposes only. [ laughter ]

lines. and i got lucky because spike was looking for a female rapper to play this part. and monie love actually got the gig, but she got pregnant, so she couldn't do it.

which is on "top gun," we all have -- it feels like a family group chat. >> jimmy: oh, yeah, one of the guys told me about this. all the guys, like the main guys, are on -- >> and monica too. monica, jay, greg, tarzan, which -- >> jimmy: tarzan is his nickname, yes. >> miles, glen, and tom is on a different thread. but it's -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: tom's on the "no screwing around" thread? >> yeah. with the one that we have, basically i always send everyone gifs of the previous work. if miles ever says something done, i send him a whiplash gif. jay obviously insecure. but yeah, so we were just keeping up with the way it was doing, box office numbers-wise. and it was insane. it was just crazy that it was finally happening. >> jimmy: because you really don't know if people are going to go cram into a theater and watch it, right? >> it feels like a little bubble that you're hearing all the great things about it. we know how good it was.
>> jimmy: they say even when projected on a screen, the jet engines themselves kill covid. [ laughter ] >> i heard that too. >> jimmy: that's what tom told me, anyway. [ laughter ] the movie's a huge success. and -- well i mean, obviously a huge success. you're working with tom cruise. and every -- we've had a number of actors from the film on the show. and everybody has a great story about tom. i'm wondering what the story behind this is. because this seems to be a kind of off-duty type situation. >> so that actually -- my last day filming, we were flying up in the -- i don't want to spoil anything, it was a very intense flight sequence. we're up by the mountains. so i land the f-18. we take a little memory card out, we go into a briefing room which has 40 or 50 people, pop it in, we see the footage. it's unreal. everyone's clapping. i hear "that's a picture wrap on danny ramirez." i shake joe's hand, jre, tom.
then in the middle of that tom is like, "hey, are you going to l.a.?" i was like, "yeah." he's like, "grab your bags." then tom on the final day flies me and tarzan to l.a. on his pj. he pilots us into this private airport. we land, we take that picture. right after he's like, "you guys are the next great stars. you guys got to take this to the next level." [ applause ] well, i appreciate it. and it's this beautiful, beautiful -- like just speech that he hypes us up with and i've never felt more inspired than that moment. then just like that he pops off his helmet, gets on his motorcycle, and just zips away. [ laughter ] just like -- in 2 seconds, i couldn't see where he was at. i was like, was this real? [ laughter ] and then, yeah. >> jimmy: do the other guys on the text chain know he gave you guys that speech? and potentially not them? >> i mean -- i remind them of it all the time. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you do, all right. >> "remember who's taking this to the next level." >> jimmy: that's so -- that's like -- it almost seems like a
lot of work for tom cruise to be so tom cruise-y all the time. [ laughter ] >> it's actually so easy. i think he makes it look easy, but it's just like, he's on, like, he's just tom cruise. there's no other way to put it. jay has a story, when he first met him, he takes off his helmet and disappears into thin air. >> jimmy: the helmet? >> the helmet disappears. he goes full stride right into a handshake. he's like -- how did that happen? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: where did you grow up? >> i grew up in -- born in chicago. grew up in miami. a canes fan. >> jimmy: grew up in miami from chicago, that's quite a transition. >> went to nyu. >> jimmy: did your family come to the premiere? did they see the movie? what did they do? >> yeah, my mom saw it in mexico. miami. then i have -- there's a screening in colombia for a big chunk of my family. but -- >> jimmy: wow. >> yeah. during the mexico premiere, my mom was like, "weren't you afraid of flying?"
i started the whole project being deathly afraid of flying. >> jimmy: oh, really? >> yeah. >> jimmy: did you tell them that beforehand? >> no, i lied. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you had to lie. >> we had to sign a paper, essentially a waiver, saying we weren't afraid of flying. i obviously lied. little did i know joe calls me a week later, "hey, by the way, there's this entire training schedule that you're a part of." i was like, "what do you mean?" so we had 40-plus hours of flight time. when i told her -- when she saw it, she remembered this moment when i was a little kid in mexico. i had my grandma tie these two toy tracks that were kind of -- like straightaways. i had her tie them on top -- >> jimmy: hot wheels tracks? >> hot wheels tracks. they kind of look like wings. or airplane wings. so she thought i was going to run around the front yard and kind of zoom around. but instead i climbed on the outside of this railing onto the
second floor, and i just looked into the horizon and i leapt. [ laughter ] and i thought i was going to fly. and essentially this lady that was selling tortillas found me unconscious on the ground. >> jimmy: what? >> she lets out this unreal scream, and the next thing i know i'm waking up in my aunt's arms, bawling. with this massive bump on my head. i might still have it. and i was just crying. i remember i blamed the wind conditions. [ laughter ] as to why i didn't fly. >> jimmy: the wind conditions? >> yeah. it was just, you know -- >> jimmy: a young meteorologist. [ laughter ] >> needed an excuse. >> jimmy: is that why you're afraid to fly? >> i think that's what start the the complex. >> jimmy: wait a minute, you didn't fly, that was the problem. [ laughter ] it wasn't that you -- you did not fly, you fell. >> for a moment, when you look into the horizon, it feels like you're going to go somewhere. then the next thing i knew, i was blacked out. >> jimmy: hold on a minute. now i'm thinking about the marvel tv show, "the falcon and the winter soldier." >> okay. >> jimmy: where at the end,
falcon, anthony mackie, hands you his broken wings. he says something to the effect of, "take these broken wings and learn to fly again, learn to live so free." [ laughter ] >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: maybe i punched that up a little. >> i think you actually undersold it. >> jimmy: so now -- oh, so you have -- oh, so you are going to be the falcon, right? [ laughter ] >> well -- i think -- i've taken to the skies. >> jimmy: you have? >> i love the skies now more than ever. i love pulling gs. if i were to do that, i'd have to do it practically. >> jimmy: i see. >> i can't go back now. >> jimmy: right, no, yeah. tom would want you to grow actual wings and fly. [ laughter ] that's how tom would do it. >> i think i might try to find out where those hot wheels tracks are to try to grow from there. >> jimmy: might want to switch to matchbox cars, see if those work out better. >> that might do it. >> jimmy: it's great to see you. congratulations on this the movie. i'm glad you survived that horrific fall. >> failed attempt, yeah. >> jimmy: the movie is "top
gun: maverick." it's in theaters now. danny ramirez, everybody! [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with music from pusha t.
