dud.'

so, you can just go and observe and so i thought, oh, i'll follow bill hader for, you know, an entire, you know, week of "snl" and just see what he does and then i'll make a seven-minute documentary. but then, that involved getting, you know, permission from a lot of people and then it turned out that i guess lorne liked me and everyone liked me over there -- >> jimmy: yeah. they do. >> and they gave me permission to just basically shoot everything and -- >> jimmy: it was crazy. like being -- i'm an "snl" fan, even before i was on the show. i mean, he doesn't let people do this. >> right, right. >> jimmy: like, he just doesn't want to be bothered. i mean -- he's like busy working. >> well, he told me -- actually, he told me that the great great documentary filmmaker pennebaker. dylan pennebaker? >> jimmy: no, he did the bob dylan, "don't look back." >> yeah, what's his first name? d.a. pennebaker! >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. >> did the, "don't look back," the original -- the great bob dylan documentary. he wanted to do one and lorne says, he said, "no." >> jimmy: yeah, no. he said no to him. >> way back then. so, it was a big honor to be able to do it.
i got everything, even -- there's this period in the week where they go in lorne's office and start picking the sketches that are going to go and all the cuts. >> jimmy: i've only been in there once. >> yeah, well bill -- i was just doing the commentary for the dvd with bill hader and will forte, and they said, they've never even seen. like the first time they saw what goes on in there was in the documentary. >> jimmy: yeah, 'cause you're so nervous as a cast member. you just like, what sketches are they gonna pick in? so he doesn't want the cast members in there because you'd just fighting for yours. like, "i think mine was funny, choose that one." so, he just doesn't let anyone in -- like, the head writers. >> so, you do feel -- like how does it feel? because you go through -- >> jimmy: nervous. >> so, tuesday night you write, and then wednesday you do that table read and that's where they do the first cuts, right? are you nervous. >> jimmy: yes, i'm nervous as i'm reading the piece. 'cause you sit around this giant conference room table -- you know what it's like. and you read these sketches, and if it's not funny, no one's laughing and it's awful and you can hear people turning the pages, like -- [ laughter ] that's when you go, "this is an
awful sketch." you can just hear people like putting them under their seat. you're like, "oh, my gosh." >> you told me backstage, you said -- obviously you're a great performer, very, very funny guy. but you said you didn't feel so confident about your writing. 'cause all the cast members write too. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, my writing is not that great. >> i'm sure it was great. >> jimmy: no, no, no. it was not good. i've had bad sketches. i've submitted stuff and i was just like -- ooph. like, people didn't even look me in the eye when we were done. [ light laughter ] just so embarrassed. and it just crushed -- >> i find that hard to believe, but -- >> jimmy: but then i'd end up meeting with horatio, or matt murray, or some other writers, matt piedmont. and we would just get together and we would just start writing stuff. like, we came up with that christmas song. i don't know if you ever saw it. [ cheers ] [ scattered applause ] we couldn't think of an idea. we couldn't write anything, we could think of an idea and someone gave me this tiny guitar as a gift, and horatio was just playing, like, goofing around and i had a keyboard. and we started just jamming out. and he just wrote the dumbest christmas song ever. >> i think that's the best -- it was great. but i think that's -- one of the things i think the documentary shows is the collaboration. and i think, if you're writing comedy -- if you're writing
certain things, i actually think it's better to work with someone else. it's just -- i can be so -- i'm sure it to be so dull to write comedy on your own. >> jimmy: yeah. i mean, there's certain forms that are better on their own. they don't like to collaborate. but, i'm definitely not one of those people. like, i need help. without the writers, i would -- it'd be awful. >> we're getting real serious about comedy. >> jimmy: real, real. too serious. i want to talk about, "your highness." >> okay. >> jimmy: -- we don't have to serious about it. i don't think you can be serious about this. can you set it up? the movie -- it's you, natalie portman, danny mcbride. >> natalie portman is pretty serious. >> jimmy: she's very serious but danny mcbride is not serious. >> danny mcbride is not serious. and actually, that is one of the great things about the movie. it is, on one level, like a 12-year-old boy's dream of a movie because there's great action. we go on an adventure. i play -- danny and i play brothers. we're both princes. i'm the favorite son. i go on all these quests and kill -- >> jimmy: dragons. >> dragons and stuff. and he's like a fish out of water. he's the screw up.
>> jimmy: he just stays home and gets stoned in the castle. >> yeah. >> jimmy: hence, "your highness." >> basically the scene of the whole movie was, a guy in medieval times that gets stoned and fights dragons. >> jimmy: right now, you're speaking to my audience. this is fantastic. [ laughter ] [ cheers ] >> literally, danny mcbride and the director, david gordon green came up with this idea in film school. they played a game where they'd come up with titles and then you'd have to come up with the movie. so, david said, "your highness," and danny said, "yeah, a guy that smokes weed and fights dragons." >> jimmy: there you go. >> 10 years later -- >> jimmy: here it is. >> boom, here it is. but, there's natalie portman in it, so it does make it a little more legitimate. >> jimmy: classier. yeah, yeah, yeah. we have a clip. here's the great james franco with danny mcbride in "your highness." take a look. >> i have something else that you can be. >> what? >> best man at my wedding. i can think of no one else i'd want by side. >> sounds tedious and boring.

>> jimmy: welcome, welcome, welcome. thanks for -- thanks for coming on my show. usually, you're interviewing me so i'm very excited about this. >> i know, i'm very excited, too. >> jimmy: switching it up a bit. you just came back from chicago, right? >> i did. >> jimmy: you saw -- >> i love chicago. >> jimmy: you -- i want to hear about charlie sheen's show. >> okay. well, i was in chicago for another reason but i could not miss the show, of course, so i went. and the crowds were insane outside. and having -- >> jimmy: was it "the violent torpedo of death" what is the name of show? >> "the torpedo of truth." >> jimmy: "the torpedo of truth" tour. >> yes. and you know there was a lot of people -- >> he has lost it. he has lost his marbles. >> yeah. he's -- he's a little nuts but we all know that -- >> jimmy: yeah. >> -- so we all wanted to go see what the show was about. >> jimmy: how crazy it's -- yeah. >> and apparently, after talking to jeff rossen who is also at nbc -- >> jimmy: oh yeah. >> -- he had gone to the detroit show and he said it was completely different than detroit. in this show in chicago, he had someone interviewing him and he
talked about, you know, all different kinds of subjects and the people really liked him, i thought, for the most part. >> jimmy: yeah, he did a better show on this one. yeah. does he sing or anything? what does he do? >> well, at one point he ripped his shirt off and he's pretty buff under there. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah. that's what i normally do to get the crowd warmed up. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> take it off, take it off. >> jimmy: they're already warm enough. they're warm enough. i wanted to look at your fingernails, i like this. >> do you like it? >> jimmy: yeah. >> it's the new katy perry nail polish, i'm obsessed with it. >> jimmy: wait, let's show the camera. >> although, it's a little chipped 'cause i was rushing around today. don't tell anyone. and so -- it's -- it's -- you put one coat of silver down or whatever color you want. you could do red, yellow. and then you put the black shatter on. >> jimmy: shatter? >> and it crackles. yeah, i can do yours later if you want. >> jimmy: no, no, no thanks. >> okay. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: but i noticed they look very pretty. >> thank you. >> jimmy: you have 20 jobs? >> yes. >> jimmy: i mean, seriously, did you hear -- in my intro, i was like my you've got to be kidding me. >> yeah. >> jimmy: i feel like i'm not doing enough. i mean, you're -- you're everything, you're on all these shows. >> i keep busy. you know, i found that the busier i am, the happier i am. >> jimmy: yeah.
and did you always want to be on tv? >> i did. i've always wanted to be on tv since i was young and you know, i always used to tell my mom, "mom, some day i want to be vanna white." [ spanish accent ] and she would go, "maria it is very hard to be vanna. she gotta know what all the letters they are." and i go -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: someone sticking up for vanna white. this is fantastic. >> i know. >> jimmy: [ spanish accent ] "maria you have to know where all the letters are." >> exactly. >> jimmy: that is great. that's so -- >> so i said, "all right, mom, i'll take it seriously. i really want this." so i actually figured out a way to practice at work. so when i worked at dunkin' donuts, i used to practice by memorizing where all the the doughnuts were. so if you came in and asked for a dozen doughnuts, i would say, "what would you like?" and they would say, "a chocolate frosted" and i would go -- >> jimmy: did it without even looking? [ light laughter ] >> a honey-dipped doughnut. >> jimmy: really? see, you've got skills. >> and so i practiced. >> jimmy: actually, we have a picture of you. >> vanna keeps on going. there was no opening. >> jimmy: look at this. there is you at dunkin'
doughnuts, there. >> yeah. [ audience aws ] >> jimmy: cute. now what are you? miss massachusetts, what is this? >> i was miss massachusetts teen usa so i went there to make an appearance at my dunkin' donuts store in somerville mass. >> jimmy: wow, the perks of becoming miss teen massachusetts, you get to go to all the dunkin' donuts. >> i know. [ applause ] >> jimmy: adorable, though. >> yeah, thank you. >> jimmy: here's another cool picture i saw here. you got to sit in lady gaga's egg? >> i did. >> jimmy: the one that she took to the grammys? >> yes. i mean look at me -- >> jimmy: that's the face i would make too. s no, i mean how do you get near it? i thought it would be in a safe somewhere. >> it was in the parking lot and it was kind of there by itself. >> jimmy: she parked her egg? >> she did. she parked her egg and it was lonely. [ light laughter ] and so, i decided i couldn't pass up the chance to get in it so i had my producer with me and i said, "i'm getting egg, you go to take a picture." so, he took the picture and security was probably like eating donuts in the car. no one was paying attention. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and i got in, i took a picture but it was hard getting in and out of that thing 'cause she is about half the size of me, and so it was kind of like a wiggle thing to get in and out. >> jimmy: that's super cool, that you got that. i got to say, i love this book. >> thank you. >> jimmy: even though i'm a guy,
i like the "everygirl's guide to life." this is like -- [ laughter ] serious though, this is like a fantastic -- this is like ten books in one book. >> thank you. >> jimmy: it's like there's recipes in here, with your mom. there's your mom, right there. maria. >> and you know what i love about jimmy? jimmy came backstage in my dressing room and he actually read this book. everything he was telling me in there -- he actually genuinely had to read it one of very few that does your homework and i'm so appreciative and thankful. >> jimmy: see? thank you. see? i am. [ applause ] >> that's amazing. >> jimmy: you have a good checklist in the back, i mean -- organizing. it's like -- yeah. but i mean it is like everything. you talk about -- look at your over checklist, right here, like what to bring, makeup. >> yeah. >> jimmy: see? i never know what makeup to bring. [ laughter ] you know what i did -- you know what i did learn from your book? i told you that -- >> what? >> jimmy: that girls wear makeup to the gym? >> yes, well we do if we're leaving work, you know? >> jimmy: okay. >> but there are those girls that wear makeup to go to the gym and you know. >> jimmy: yeah, i -- that's awful. >> yeah. >> jimmy: i mean guys have it easy. guys have it easy. my hair's messed up, i'm wearing, you know, ratty sweat pants. that's how i work out. >> yeah, but you guys are checking us out, so we have to look good. it's kind of embarrassing. >> jimmy: i don't do that, see,
i don't go to the gym because i -- i don't check people out. i'm happily married. i don't check people out. >> this is true. this is true. >> jimmy: i don't look. because i'd feel creepy. that's why i don't go to the gym anymore because people are stretching and doing crazy stuff, where it's like, "god, i don't -- really don't want to look at you." i mean that's too much. [ light laughter ] but there's also a thing in here. you have a tip in here about -- to keep your abs tough, you have people punch you in the stomach? >> yes, now this is not something that i suggest to other people but i'm crazy and my dad actually is crazy, so my dad in the village, back in the day -- he used to lay down and used to have people throw rocks on his stomach and he would squeeze his abs and bounce them off, and so -- he -- one day, he did it. >> jimmy: i want to party with your dad. he sounds awesome. >> oh, he is so fun. you would love him. so, it finally got to the point where he put a big boulder on his -- you know, they threw a boulder, and he bounced it off. so, i was like -- i would hear this stuff when i was growing up and i had all guy cousins and we would wrestle and we would fight. it was all about, you know, physicality. so i was like, "hit me." so i always had people punch me in the stomach and now my abs are really tight, you can't hurt me. although "rowdy" roddy piper
hurt me once. >> jimmy: he punched you in the stomach? >> i begged him. he didn't want to do it. >> jimmy: he's a professional wrestler. >> i know. i know. i know. i begged him, but he totally did it. and i swear i thought i had internal bleeding for two days. [ laughter ] and i was like, "am i gonna die?" but at least it could have been at "rowdy" roddy piper's hands. now, that's a good way to die. >> jimmy: that's pretty good. yeah, absolutely. you guys have to get this book, the "the everygirl's guide to life" is in bookstores next week. preorder it right now. maria menounos, everybody! booker t. performs next. come on back!
