bridges. >> lou: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- jeff bridges, rupert friend, and music from symba. with cleto and the cletones. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: oh, thank you. that's very nice. oh, hey. hi, i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming to see us here in hollywood. it's friday, and we all have something in common tonight. none of us had anything better to do than this. [ cheers ] i want to welcome those who joined us in primetime for game
11:36 pm
four of the nba finals in boston where fans have taken a particular dislike to warriors power forward draymond green. everybody doesn't love draymond in boston. [ laughter ] he has been greeted with chants of f-u each time he's played there, which you have to take with a grain of salt, f-u is like their aloha in boston. [ laughter ] that's how they greet everyone. that's what ben affleck's grandma says when he goes home to visit. [ laughter ] green and his warrior teammates were not happy with all the four-letter words boston fans have been throwing at draymond. a few of them called it classy, and i did detect a hint of sarcasm when they said it. here's the thing. being upset with boston sports fans for being drunk and abusive is like being upset at spirit airlines for losing your bag. [ laughter ] you knew what you were getting into and you went. game five's monday night. we'll have another special primetime show ahead of that one. insane congressional hearings e- detailing what happened at the
11:37 pm
capitol on january 6th, more than 20 million americans watched that live last night. it was deeply unsettling. even just hearing jared kushner's voice was deeply unsettling. [ laughter ] if you didn't watch, here's what you missed, a message to donald trump in a nutshell. >> thanks to your bull [ bleep ], we are under siege. >> jimmy: that was vice chair liz chaney recounting an email sent on january 6th from a lawyer for mike pence to one of the lawyers helping trump try to overturn the election. who could have ever guessed dick chaney's daughter would be our last hope for democracy? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: but here we are. there she was. very effective. painted a brutal, damning, brazenly unamerican portrait of a seditious president, his attempt to overthrow the very concept of democracy. yet there's still a good chance in three years he'll be back in the oval office eating bacon double cheeseburgers with kanye. [ laughter ] man, do i hope republicans pay attention to these hearings. we heard a lot of the details of
11:38 pm
the attack before. we didn't know how premeditated it was until last night. this was a coordinated effort to take control of the country. in fact, that's probably going to be the basis for trump's defense. he's going to say it was way too coordinated for him to have been in charge. [ laughter ] there was damaging video testimony from trump's inner circle, from his own family, in fact. we learned that trump did not call in the national guard to stop the attack. he made that up when he said it. we learned that when his supporters were breaking in windows chanting "hang mike pence," trump was watching on tv, said "maybe they have the right idea, maybe mike pence deserved it." this is his own vice president. and mike must have been crapping his "pence" while this was happening. [ laughter ] it was totally crazy. multiple republican lawmakers went so far as to ask trump for pardons in exchange for their efforts to overturn the election for him. which is exactly the kind of thing innocent people do. [ laughter ] they're doing everything they can to slip around this. the republican house judiciary committee today tweeted "all old news."
11:39 pm
yeah, that was also eichmann's defense at nuremberg, okay? guys, it was 1943! old news isn't a defense. the fact that they didn't call it fake news is progress. but it boggles the mind the vast majority of republicans are going along with this idea the whole thing is a partisan political stunt. bill barr, detsy devos, liz chaney, mike pence. these people are not democrats. these are not antifa, okay? [ laughter ] fox news is so intent on burying their viewers' heads in the sand, not only didn't they show the hearing last night, they went commercial free for 2 1/2 hours so their viewers wouldn't switch the channel to see what is actually going on. they went into overdrive trying to make it seem like what happened was just a rowdy group of party people sneaking into the movies or something. >> the idea that this was a coup or a coup attempt. >> there's no evidence of anything like a coup here. >> acting like it was massive coup and insurrection. >> it was not an insurrection. it was not even close to an
11:40 pm
insurrection. the reality is it was not an insurrection. >> the reality is there was no insurrection. >> there was no insurrection. there was a riot, a small one, that got a little bit out of hand. >> january 6th was actually an overwhelmingly peaceful march. >> they were afraid of some goofball trespassing, nutty rioters. >> how does a guy putting his feet up on nancy pelosi's desk put democracy at risk? >> what if we turn off the volume? and just watch the images? does it look like a sedition, a coup? >> we've lost the line, we've lost the line! >> you tell me. >> jimmy: yeah, looks like a coup. [ cheers and applaue ] it looks like a -- doesn't just look like a coup. to me it looks like a cuckoo for cocoa puffs is what it looks like. [ laughter ] five people were killed that day by those nutty goofball trespassers.
11:41 pm
on "fox & friends" they went so far as to encourage people not to watch on song. ♪ i ain't watching tv today ♪ ♪ bad news it can just stay away ♪ ♪ if you ain't got anything good to say just shut your mouth ♪ ♪ i got my windows down and my blinders on ♪ >> jimmy: i got my head up my butt, sing with me, everybody, now! [ applause ] unbelievable. and the worst part is, no matter how damaging these hearings are, you know trump is at home so thrilled to be back on in primetime, he can't stop pulling his nipples. [ laughter ] he loves it. trump responded with not one but 14 manic posts that no one saw on truth social starting with, the unselect committee didn't spend one minute studying the reason people went to washington, d.c. in massive numbers, far greater than the fake news media is willing to report or that the unselects are willing to even mention, because january 6th was not simply a protest, it represented the greatest movement in the history of our country -- to make america great again.
11:42 pm
it was about an election that was rigged and stolen and a country that was about to go to hell and look at our country now. yeah, look at what you did to our country. [ applause ] we are in hell. thanks a lot. i mean, this is some defense. basically his defense is, yeah, i robbed the bank, but look how many other people i got to do it with me. [ laughter ] probably the toughest moment for him was seeing his daughter, his own pride and joy, tell the committee that she believed bill barr when he told her the election wasn't rigged, that he lost. this is how he tried to spin that moment. he wrote, ivanka trump was not involved in looking at or studying election results, she had long since checked out and was in my opinion only trying to be respectful to bill barr and his position as attorney general, he sucked. [ laughter ] yeah, he sucked on your man teats the whole time he worked for you, then bailed when you went nuts two weeks before they dragged you out of that office. i love his argument that ivanka, is it ivanka? yeah, ivanka, his senior white house adviser, checked out.
11:43 pm
in the trump family that's called being thrown under the "access hollywood" bus. [ laughter and applause ] he played all the hits, he called the hearings one-sided, totally partisan political witch hunt, all caps. there's no defense for any of this. that doesn't mean they won't dig deal. garbage detail green was on the floor of the house defending his magasty with a very powerful statement. >> there is something terrible happening in this process, and it's called defamation of character. the president, the 45th president of the united states' character is being defamed and all of his staff and his family and all republicans. everyone's reputation is being defamed as lies are being told about all of us and president trump, just for politics. and it makes me sick. >> jimmy: oh. i hope it makes you sick enough not to come into work. [ laughter and applause ]
11:44 pm
she had an accident. she once again crashed headfirst into the english language. >> no one on this january 6th committee dares to ask a question, what is happening to these people, why their due process rights are being so fragrantly and horrifically violated -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: always sounds like a drunk driver fighting with a cop, right? [ laughter ] their rights are being fragrantly violated! even donald trump is like, okay, not that poorly educated. as far as ass-kissing goes, klan mom finished a distant second this week to a balding novelty tie owner from one america news. >> we here at one america news would like to say, thank you, president trump. your legacy as a patriot is unquestionable. you have inspired countless millions and shown our nation what it truly means to make america great again. from one american news, i'm

[ applause ] >> jimmy: wow. i can't think of a finer advertisement to follow that. on behalf of all our flaccid male viewers -- [ laughter ] who need a broom handle and duct tape to get it up, thank you, mr. president. [ laughter ] your boner's in the mail. back to basketball. [ applause ] tonight we saw game four of the nba finals. tickets to the series are going for record high prices. up in san francisco the worst seats for game one were going for $800. it's almost a whole tank of gasoline. [ laughter ] from time to time we like to find out what fans love more, their team or being on tv. we went up for game one, we got in the arena to find out how long we could keep a passionate warriors fan from getting back to his seat during the fourth quarter in a new 2022 edition of

the middle of everything! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: music from symba is on the way. our next guest is a very talented man you know from five seasons of "homeland," now he reports to lord vader himself in "obi-wan kenobi." you can see it on disney plus. please welcome rupert friend. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: how are you doing? it's great to have you.
12:23 am
you know, i was a big fan of your work on "homeland." [ cheers and applause ] that is the first time i had seen you. they tried to kill you like 37 times. [ laughter ] >> yeah, they shot me, they drowned me, they gassed me, they woke me up from a coma. it was just like, cancel my contract and i'll go. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: were you misbehaving behind the scenes? what was going on? >> i was trying to behave. but i guess peter quinn had nine lives and they wanted to push that one to the end. >> jimmy: yeah, maybe more than nine, i'm not sure. >> 27, apparently. >> jimmy: you're on the show "obi-wan kenobi" which is obviously a very big deal. [ cheers and applause ] from a professional standpoint, is it for you personally, is being part of the "star wars" universe something you'd always dreamed of? >> yeah, i mean -- i mean, when the call came, i completely freaked out. because it was this huge universe. >> jimmy: what does that look like when you freak out? [ laughter ] >> it's like this a bit. a bit of bluuh. then i read this amazing script. and there was this description
12:24 am
of this enigmatic guy who loved the sound of his own voice, delivered this long, rambling monologue before he got to the fun stuff. and you can empathize. [ laughter ] no, it was wild. it was wild. and then finding yourself on the planet tattooine, striding down the main street to the cantina -- >> jimmy: you shot on tattooine? >> we went to tattooine, yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: tax breaks? >> they have a great tax break there. the hotels are terrible. you know, you're seeing this cantina where i watched han solo and the music and deb chow, the director, would play the music. you start getting into that, which is not very character appropriate for this particular guy. but no, it was a dream. >> jimmy: this particular guy is a former jedi who's now a jedi hunter. >> yep. >> jimmy: and he wants to kill -- oh, there you go.
12:25 am
the grand inquisitor. >> yeah. he hasn't seen the sun in a while. [ laughter ] but yeah, that's he, that's him. >> jimmy: that's his skin. that's his skin -- well, you're obviously wearing makeup. >> yes. yeah. a little bit. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: how long does it take to get that going? >> that was four hours to get it on. >> jimmy: for real? >> yeah. >> jimmy: i can do that in 40 minutes, no problem. [ laughter ] i could, i could speed that up for you. >> how would you do that? >> jimmy: i don't know, what's the bulb on the head? that's not your head shaved? >> yeah, it's like a boiled egg vibe. [ laughter ] basically, they had to put all these pieces of stuff on, contact lenses in, teeth in, then earmuffs. kind of like sensory deprivation at times. and then by the end of a day's shooting, the whole thing, which was glued, watertight glued, was filled with sweat and would slosh as i walked. [ audience moaning ] this is accompanying this sloshing sound. to get out of it, they get a pair of scissors and cut you out, and this torrent of sweaty
12:26 am
glue would fall down my face. [ audience moans ] >> jimmy: like have an aquarium on your head. >> little bit, yeah. >> jimmy: it's not all glamorous is what you're saying? >> no, no, definitely a mixed bag. >> jimmy: okay. that's every day you have to do that? >> yeah, i would arrive at 3:00 in the morning. i would have six pairs of hands all over me, which maybe sounds great to some people. [ laughter ] and we would be ready to work at 7:00, but we'd already been there in the middle of the night. >> jimmy: in episode 2, you get a lightsaber. by the way, did you know you were going to get a lightsaber? was that part of the explanation, the pitch? >> i don't think it landed until they handed it to me. it's this double-ended, heavy, spinning, bad-ass thing. im, i don't know, have you ever held a lightsaber? >> jimmy: no. >> anything double-ended? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i've held some double-ended things, yeah. [ laughter ] >> so you know. >> jimmy: yeah. i mean -- [ applause ] not a lightsaber. but -- yeah. okay, so you get your lightsaber. you get to keep that? >> sadly, no.
12:27 am
>> jimmy: then you got stabbed. your character got stabbed. >> yeah. >> jimmy: through the stomach. >> one of them. >> jimmy: one of the stomachs. >> yes. >> jimmy: okay, because your character has two stomachs? >> that's correct. >> jimmy: like a hippo? >> half a cow, yeah. >> jimmy: so that is what many of the "star wars" analysts/nerds are saying will bring -- the reason you are able to survive this is because you have another stomach. >> you know that i survive this? >> jimmy: yes. >> how? >> jimmy: i don't know, i'm just throwing it out there, seeing how you react. [ laughter ] >> it's a great try, a great try. >> jimmy: it's my double-ended thing of interviewing, yeah. [ laughter ] no, i assume you do, else why would you be here right now? >> yeah. right. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you wouldn't be saying, watch the show. you'd be going, screw them! [ laughter ] they wrote me out, they put my head in an egg, sweat went everywhere, it was an absolute nightmare, now they want me -- screw you, disney, i'm not doing any of that stuff. >> right, yeah.
12:28 am
no, i can see the logic. i also think you're making a valiant effort to get me to do a spoiler. which obviously i'm not going to do. >> jimmy: right, well yeah, nobody wants that. nobody wants that. >> yeah. >> jimmy: in the next episode -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy kimmel, ladies and gentlemen! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that's good. maybe i'm the grand inquisitor. ever think about that? [ laughter ] >> that's true. they've never seen us in the same room before. >> jimmy: that is true. so "star wars." let's get back to the root of this thing. >> yeah. >> jimmy: which is when you're a kid, really, right? >> yeah. >> jimmy: did you go to the movie when you were a kid? was it like -- did you have the toys? >> okay, so to fill you in, i grew tup a tiny village in england called, believe it or not, stonesfield. >> jimmy: really? >> a real place, you can look it up. it sounds like a hobbit-y place, it sort of was. people had hairy feet that kind of thing. >> jimmy: how many people lived in that town? >> under 1,000. >> jimmy: oh, really? >> it wasn't a town, it was a village. stone walls.
12:29 am
my house was 400 years old, i'm not joking. it was that world. and so we didn't get a vcr until i was 16 years old. there was no movie -- >> jimmy: same here, 16. >> really? yeah, that's weird. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: begged for it. begged. begged for it. >> so i didn't see "star wars" first. i got to hang out with a group of older guys who all used to play "star wars." >> jimmy: like how old were these guys playing "star wars"? [ laughter ] sounds like your parents weren't very careful. [ laughter and applause ] >> yeah, it's true. >> jimmy: they didn't try to touch your lightsaber, did they? [ laughter ] >> it's true, now i think about it. takes some re-examining, maybe. yeah, they would all take character names and run around in the woods and play dress-up. this doesn't sound good. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: no, no. no, it doesn't sound good at all. >> yeah. i must revisit this and talk to my mother, apparently. [ laughter ]
12:30 am
they would pick characters from the show. there was an overweight guy, he was jabba the hutt. >> jimmy: oh, no, really? >> yeah, really. >> jimmy: one of them named himself jabba? or did the other kids name him jabba? because that doesn't sound like -- "i want to be jabba!" >> "let me do it!" yeah. i think it was like "the goonies," he sort of owned it. >> jimmy: okay, all right, good. >> then there was a very hirsute man who was chewbacca. [ laughter ] a very youthful, slightly awkward guy who was like. everyone had a character. that's kind of how it went. >> jimmy: then you went to the dark side. >> then i went to the dark side. >> jimmy: if you had to choose, would you rather be a hero or a villain in the "star wars" world? >> i love being a villain in "star wars," i love it. [ applause ] >> jimmy: it's more fun to be the villain, right? >> it's great. >> jimmy: so in the next episode, the grand inquisitor eats a bunch of tums and is okay? >> what did the prostitute say to the leper? >> jimmy: i don't know. >> i'm not going to answer that. [ laughter ]
12:31 am
can i? >> jimmy: what's going on in that town? >> i don't know. [ laughter ] i'm trying to change the subject off the spoilers. >> jimmy: do you have lepers in the town? >> oh, yeah. there was a leper colony. >> jimmy: there was a leper colony, interesting, wow. >> i escaped. >> jimmy: we'll skip the handshake at the end. [ laughter ] it's great to have you here. we'll see what happens. you know what, we'll find out. new episodes of "obi-wan kenobi" wednesdays on disney plus. rupert friend. thank you, rupert.
