>> jimmy: hey, that's what i'm talking about! that's a great crowd. welcome, everybody. thank you so much for being here. welcome to "late night with jimmy fallon." let's get right to the jokes here, you guys. president obama is on a big european trip this week and i heard that he's sleeping at buckingham palace when he visits england. that's when you know that the u.s. is short on cash. when even obama's like, "hey, is it cool if i crash at your place? [ laughter ] no, couch is fine. couch is fine, yeah." you guys see this? today, president obama visited the irish village where his great-great-great-grandfather was born. of course, that was always disputed by his great-great-great-grandfather's archrival, donny mctrump. [ laughter ] [ irish accent ] "now, where were you actually born there, obama? [ laughter ] gary busey threw ya under the bus, did he? yeah." [ laughter ]
3:06 am
that's right. obama was in ireland today. he thought about buying a four-leaf clover for good luck and then, he looked at the field of republican candidates and decided it wasn't necessary. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] "i don't need it." crazy. that's right. the republican are really starting to worry about their chances in 2012. mike huckabee dropped out. mitch daniels dropped out. sarah palin hasn't. [ laughter ] did you see this? mitch daniels -- indiana governor, mitch daniels. he emailed his supporters over the weekend to tell them that he's not running for president. in response, his supporters were like, "dad, we live in the same house, couldn't you just tell us in person? [ laughter ] what's this e-mail all about? don't ever e-mail me again!" [ applause ] actually, mitch daniels said that he's not running because he loves his family more than he loves his country. the other candidates feel that way too.
3:07 am
in fact, newt gingrich says he loves all his families more than he loves his country. [ laughter ] i thought that was very nice. did you hear about this? sarah palin just bought a house in arizona for $1.6 million. yeah, it has a pool, a jacuzzi and a gazebo, which'll be perfect for her kids -- pool, jacuzzi, and gazebo.

>> jimmy: $5,000? that's all it is to get in. [ laughter ] >> listen to me, mirror self. it's a shorter distance. but they actually asked me to drive the pace car this year. >> jimmy: yeah, 'cause i didn't see you walking or running. >> no. they let me take the easy route. >> jimmy: you drove a car? >> i did but it was unmarked. which was fine and it was a convertible, which is kind of, extra tooly, so -- >> jimmy: wait, wait, so it was -- was it sponsored by a car company, i guess? or something -- >> yeah, it was sponsored by lexus. >> jimmy: yeah. >> but there was no sign on it that said "you're here for the revlon run/walk." so -- >> jimmy: so you're basically just a dude driving a car. >> yeah, which was fine on the streets 'cause it was blockaded off but then, once i got to central park, i was basically just a douche in a car -- driving a convertible. driving the wrong way, against the flow of other people. >> jimmy: not only that, and a very good looking douche, too. "you got everything! you can't ride in the park!" [ laughter ] >> so, i have never had so much hate rained on me. >> jimmy: no way. >> and the crowning moment was a biker -- this is what happens in new york, if you upset somebody. a biker actually drove by and did a drive-by snot rocket.
3:40 am
[ laughter ] onto the car. i was like, "dude, whatever happened to the middle finger?" >> jimmy: yeah, this is so much better than the middle finger. that is offensive. >> yes. >> jimmy: i don't do that. i've never done that. >> no. >> jimmy: i've seen people run track, you know, in high school and they -- >> sure. sometimes you got to get it out. >> jimmy: a lot of them do it. i don't even do that. i tried spitting for a while. >> yeah? how were you at that? >> jimmy: i got pretty decent. >> yeah? >> jimmy: but then it was just like -- it wasn't me. wasn't my vibe. >> you're either a spitter or you're not. >> jimmy: yeah, i was spitting and then, my mom was like, "what are you doing?" i'm like -- i just kept doing it. [ laughter ] i don't know what the purpose is. you have too much saliva in your mouth? >> sure, that could be one. >> jimmy: you're just hocking too many loogies. >> yeah. >> jimmy: but i was like -- [ imitates spitting ] i was just spitting everywhere. it was like, crazy. and then i would go, "this is ridiculous. i should get a different talent than spitting." >> yeah. >> jimmy: yeah, it's not going to get me far. you know, i was downstairs -- speaking of talent. hoda and kathie lee was down -- they're downstairs. who i love so much. >> love them both. >> jimmy: and i co-hosted with them, a while back.
3:41 am
>> yeah. >> jimmy: and they said that you did as well. >> i did, yeah. i filled in for kathie lee one time. i had a blast. >> jimmy: it's so much fun, right? >> it was so much fun. hoda is such a pro. and i have not been proffered that much alcohol since a high school kegger. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: they're good. >> "have franzia, we'll travel." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: franzia! >> "red or white?" >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah. >> but it was so much fun. i had a blast. >> jimmy: oh, they're th greatest. >> and, you know, hoda is just the coolest lady ever. >> jimmy: she's super cool. we've got to talk about "white collar." >> yeah. >> jimmy: dude, the show's a smash. >> oh, thank you. >> jimmy: i'm so happy. because, you know, we're -- [ cheers and applause ] i think you had, like, the highest rated scripted drama on cable in 18-49. just -- do you want to tell everyone what it's about? i mean, you kind of understand. >> it's about an unlikely partnership between an fbi agent and a con artist, who i play. and basically, he gets his prison sentence shortened in order to help the fbi solve white collar crimes. and this season -- at the end of last season he basically stumbled upon the biggest score you could ever hope to get, as a con artist. and so, this season is really about, sort of, the duplicity of is he gonna stay and do the right thing or is he gonna take the score and go? >> jimmy: ooh.
3:42 am
>> yeah. >> jimmy: now, do you know -- have you learned anything now that you're doing this. do you know how to, like, pick locks or anything cool? >> it used to be me and wikipedia and a lot of caffeine, late into the night, trying to figure out what was going on and a lot of reading. but now, i have an amazing con artist adviser named simon lovell, who's taught me how to pick locks. >> jimmy: hey, i'm sorry, is that a job? a con artist adviser? >> he's actually an ex-con who did time in a swiss prison. >> jimmy: give me his number. >> which, from what i understand, is actually a lot nicer than the studio apartment i lived in, here in the city for several years. >> jimmy: they are small here, yes. >> but he's amazing. he's such a great guy, and he's taught me -- >> jimmy: is there any secrets? like, what is the big pickpocket secret? >> oh, the big pickpocket secret is to always go with two fingers. it's like -- remember when e.t. grabs the little leaves at the beginning of "e.t."? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you do that so gracefully. >> thank you. >> jimmy: yeah, you did that off broadway. so you were e.t. off broadway, weren't you? >> i was. >> jimmy: oh, congratulations. >> thank you. >> jimmy: wait, what do you mean? so, two? so i go like -- >> your thumb gets in the way. so, to be more stealth, just go fingers. >> jimmy: really?
3:43 am
>> you've got to know your mark, too. you've got to scope it out and make sure the wallet's a little loose in the pocket and then, just get in -- >> jimmy: baggy pants easier than tight pants? tight trousers no good? >> you want to go -- it depends. it depends. you' got to scope it out but you want to distract with a bump. because if you bump them on the shoulder, then they -- their body immediately goes to that sensation and then, they won't notice when you grab from the back. >> jimmy: is that right? >> yeah. >> jimmy: see, you guys? i hope everyone learned something. [ applause ] >> jimmy: matt will be mugging each and every one of you, after the show. that's right, everybody. he'll be stealing all your books. [ cheers and applause ] i want to show a clip of the show, "white collar." in this, here, your partner is interrogating you, kind of. >> yeah, he's giving me a lie detector test because he thinks i might be up to no good. >> jimmy: you might be going over to the dark side. >> yeah. >> jimmy: here we go, this is matt bomer in "white collar." >> what happened? >> the warehouse burst into flames. >> did you steal the art? >> no. >> do you know who did?
3:44 am
