tv   Late Night With Seth Meyers  NBC  May 22, 2014 12:36am-1:38am PDT

12:36 am
>> jimmy: my thanks to hugh jackman, jimmy page, josh kaufman, barry gibb right here, ladies and gentlemen. [ cheers and applause ] and the roots right over there, ladies and gents. stay tuned for "late night with seth meyers." thank you for watching. have a great night. hope to see you tomorrow. buh-bye, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- jennifer lawrence, alan cumming,
12:37 am
music from little daylight, featuring the 8g band with fred armisen. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ and now, here he is, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ seth: good evening. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everyone doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] let's start off with some good news. it's fleet week in new york, everybody. give it up for fleet week. [ cheers and applause ] and you know what fleet week means -- next week is penicillin week. [ laughter ] lana del ray will perform for kim kardashian and kanye west at
12:38 am
their wedding this weekend in florence. apparently, the theme of their wedding is depression. [ laughter ] i bet she doesn't know how to sing the "chicken dance." [ laughter ] i'm going to guess. this is pretty cool. the director of the fbi said he may consider relaxing a policy that prevents the agency from hiring anyone who has smoked pot in the last three years. sounds like somebody's finally tried pot. [ laughter ] i think we're a little hasty in our opinions on pot. [ cheers and applause ] yet another vehicle recall. one day after recalling 2.4 million vehicles, gm has announced that it's recalling another 218,000 chevy aveos. apparently their defect is that they're chevy aveos. [ laughter ]
12:39 am
and once they realized they were out there, they had to do something. hey, where are the aveos? oh, we sold them. oh, you weren't supposed to sell them. [ laughter ] this is a very sweet story. yesterday, a group of 50 brooklyn school kids gave an impromptu recorder recital on the subway during morning rush hour. [ audience aws ] because sometimes, new york is full of great surprises. and other times, it's full of children playing the recorder on the subway in the morning. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] oh, my god. did a train just derail off the tracks? no, that was the sound of 50 kids playing recorder on the subway. [ laughter ] this is amazing to me. the stars of tlc's "19 kids and
12:40 am
counting" are reportedly considering having a 20th child. this would mark the first time they've actually done any considering. [ laughter ] i feel bad. you feel like the 20th might not get as much attention. i mean, all the 20th children i know -- that's their complaint. they haven't even met their parents. [ laughter ] this is great. a french rail company admitted yesterday that they mistakenly ordered 2,000 trains that are too wide for station platforms. as opposed to the problem we have here, where the people are too wide for the trains. [ laughter and applause ] i love this story. a cat in new zealand reportedly brought home a bag of marijuana and left it on their owners' doorstep.
12:41 am
when the cat was asked how it learned to do that, the cat said, "i learned it from watching you!" [ laughter ] speaking of cats -- big day for cat news. speaking of cats -- last night, a cat that became famous for saving a small boy from a dog attack, threw out the first pitch at a minor league baseball game. [ laughter ] because nothing says "thanks, cat" like taking him in a car and putting him in front of a bunch of screaming people to do an activity he doesn't have the thumbs for. [ laughter and applause ] this? this is how you're thanking me? milk. just a bowl of milk. this story is just nuts. a drunk driving british man was able to escape a breathalyzer
12:42 am
test by repeatedly punching himself in the face until his self-inflicted wounds made it impossible to get a successful reading. so i guess we'll never know if he was drunk. [ laughter ] it will remain a mystery -- a great unsolved mystery. golfer rory mcilroy. any golf fans here? anyone know rory mcilroy? [ cheers and applause ] well, golfer rory mcilroy broke off his engagement to a pro tennis player days after sending out the wedding invitations because he finally realized that, to her, love means zero. [ laughter and applause ] it's a very quiet -- a very quiet but a very good tennis joke. right now, roger federer is
12:43 am
pissing himself. [ laughter ] so, fine. you don't like it? great. roger federer's laughter is more than making up for how little you like the tennis jokes. [ laughter ] an off-duty philadelphia police lieutenant was removed from duty after being charged with masturbating inside a starbucks. and you could tell he was at starbucks because he called ou the wrong name. [ laughter and applause ] that's right. he was masturbating at starbucks. or as he called it, frapping his chinos. [ audience ohs ] i'm getting knighted for that joke? thank you. and finally, american ground beef producers have announced a recall of nearly 2 million pounds of beef tainted with e. coli. a spokesman for arby's says the recall doesn't affect them since they only use beef graded d. coli or higher. [ laughter ]
12:44 am
ladies and gentlemen, this is the 8g band. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ >> seth: how we doing, 8g band? is everyone well? it's good to see you all. we have j mascis sitting in with us again. we've had him all week. [ cheers and applause ] it's a delight to have him. welcome back, j. and fred, i'm always so happy you're here. how are you doing? >> fred: great, great. happy to see you. >> seth: i'm happy to you. it's so wonderful to have you here because we've known each other a long time. and yet, every time i see you on the show, i feel like i learn a new thing about you. it's so wonderful. you're such an accomplished person. >> fred: thank you. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, i was thinking the other day. my only fear is i worry people at home think that these accomplishments, these things you're doing, are just things you're making up off the top of your head. [ laughter ] i, of course, know that not to be true.
12:45 am
did you start your own music competition show? >> fred: i did. [ laughter ] >> seth: you did? >> fred: i absolutely did. >> seth: because there's a lot of those out there now. >> fred: i did. and it's called "battle of the wizards of ozes." [ laughter ] people have to sing, competing with each other, dressed up as different people from "the wizard of oz." [ laughter ] >> seth: gotcha. >> fred: you know, dressed up as them. but they can only pick between a scarecrow and the tin man. [ laughter ] >> seth: okay, so it's called "battle of the wizard of ozes." >> fred: "battle of the wizards of the ozes." >> seth: okay. that's a mouthful. >> fred: yeah, yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: so, if i tune in, i see just each contest are either dressed as the tin man or the scarecrow. and they come out -- do they have to do a song specific to those characters? >> fred: no, no. they can pick whatever song they want. but they have to sing their own song at the same time. [ laughter ] you know what i mean? >> seth: so, it's two different songs. >> fred: yes. >> seth: different music. >> fred: yes.
12:46 am
[ laughter ] >> seth: this seems like it would not be a pleasant show to watch. >> fred: but it's a competition because you want to see how they are in the moment. you know what i mean? >> seth: gotcha. do you ever have two scarecrows out at once or two tin men? or is it always one or the other? >> fred: it happened a lot. whether it's two scarecrows, two tin men. yes, it has happened. >> seth: singing two different songs. >> fred: yes. >> seth: and who are the judges? >> fred: it's me, dr. ruth -- [ laughter ] suze orman, donald trump, dr. phil -- and some sports people from the minor leagues. [ laughter ] >> seth: seems like too many judges. >> fred: yes, but it's not all at the same time. it's most of them at the same time. >> seth: okay, gotcha. >> fred: yeah. >> seth: that's really exciting. how many episodes are you doing in the whole year? >> fred: 700. [ laughter ] >> seth: well, that's great. so, "battle of the wizards of the ozes." >> fred: it's on cbs and nbc. [ laughter ] >> seth: at the same time? >> fred: at the same time, yes. >> seth: wow! congratulations. >> fred: thank you.
12:47 am
>> seth: i assume you're making some pretty good coin on this? >> fred: i'm not. it was a terrible deal that we sorted out. >> seth: well, either way, congratulations. give it up for fred armisen and his new show. [ cheers and applause ] we made a joke about fleet week earlier. but we are, in all seriousness, very happy to have some service men and women with us tonight. let's give it up for them. [ cheers and applause ] thank you for your service. thank you so much for being here. and all jokes aside -- you know, penicillin, not just for them, but for everyone. [ laughter ] and for anyone up at this hour watching this show, it couldn't hurt. penicillin, it's designed not to hurt. i have half a pill every night to help me sleep. [ laughter ] we have a great show tonight. from "x-men: days of future past," jennifer lawrence is here. [ cheers and applause ]
12:48 am
can't wait to talk to her. also, tony award winning star of "cabaret" on broadway, alan cumming. i saw the show last night. it's fantastic. he's fantastic in it. and we'll have music from little daylight. it's going to be a great show tonight. [ cheers and applause ] really good. now, this past week the attorney general announced that members of the chinese military hacked into numerous american businesses with the intent to spy and steal secrets. and as a result, five chinese army officials have been charged with espionage. it's, of course, a big story. so almost every news outlet had something to say about it. for example, this is the headline for "the new york times" -- "five in china army face u.s. charges of cyber attacks." simple and informative. so, we wanted to take a look at how some of the other news outlets covered the story in a piece we call "how they reported it." [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: let's see how another
12:49 am
paper from new york city reported it. the "new york post" went with "hackers bring america to their chinese." [ laughter ] wonderful job, "new york post." or should i say, pun-derful job. next, we have the british newspaper, "the daily telegraph." let's see how they reported it. "what's with all this hackery then?" [ laughter ] the brits really hit the squibb on the giblet with that one. let's see what the magazine "cosmo" has to say. "how to get that chinese hacker look." i'd heard chinese hacker was in this spring. but i'm more of a "matrix" guy myself. maybe we need to turn to a more reliable news source. let's see what fox news says. oh, it looks like they have been hacked. [ laughter ] should probably look into that. they just straight up got hacked. next, we have "high times." they're in your computer, but they're not in your computer, you know? [ laughter ] it seems like a pretty remarkable issue. and by that i mean it's remarkable that any issue of "high times" ever actually gets finished. [ laughter ]
12:50 am
you know what? we need a totally different perspective on this story. let's see what "senior citizens guide" had to say. "eh, something with computers." [ laughter ] "back in my day, if you wanted to hack someone, you had to rifle through their desk." [ laughter ] here's one from "newsweek." they always go a little more in depth with their articles. "is jesus real?" "newsweek," still trying to figure that one out. let's see how "i.t. supervisor" magazine reported it. i've always found i.t. guys are a little bit of bummers, but maybe they're not. i can't believe they have their own magazine. "if everyone had listened to me and installed a firewall software, none of this would have happened." [ laughter ] nope, they're still bummers. they're still bummers. finally, let's see how the "lunch box gazette" at northbrook middle school reported it. "ha-ha, one of the hackers names is wang dong." [ laughter and applause ] shame on you guys. grow up.
12:51 am
and that's how they reported it. we'll be right back, with more "late night."

>> seth: welcome back to "late night," everybody. so when you do a comedy show, there's always a chance of telling a joke that may rub people the wrong way. and sometimes audiences get offended. and then, all of a sudden, they're not on your side any more. well, we here at "late night" have come up with a fail-safe to avoid this problem by borrowing from the world of professional wrestling. now, in professional wrestling they have what's known as a heel. the heel is the bad guy that comes out and is so mean and nasty, he makes the good guy look even better. so we went out and found our very own wrestling bad guy. ladies and gentlemen, let's hear it for the new, "late night" heel, stink mouth pig man!

[ laughter ] >> seth: hey! hey, those things are awful. if it was up to me, the minimum wage would go up and everyone would get an extra week of vacation. doesn't that sound good?

[ laughter ] she kept -- we left, and then she was like, "meet me at the bar." so i snuck out. i was like, "oh my god! i can't do this!" and she was like, "you can do whatever you want." i was like, "i can?"

[ applause ] >> i read it three times. and n'sync, backstreet boys. [ cheers ] yeah, but it all changes when you get older. 'cause then you meet everyone and you're like, "oh, yeah, we're all adults now." it's not the same as in the '90s. >> seth: so, when you met harry potter it was less of a big deal? >> no, i screamed at him the first time i met him.

[ laughter ] >> seth: so, you outgrew harry potter and n'sync. >> i did, yeah. i outgrew them both. >> seth: you always talk about the fact you have older brothers. two older brothers, three? >> two older brothers. >> seth: two older brothers. >> i was the third brother. [ laughter ] >> seth: well, it does seem like they, obviously, were pretty hard on you growing up. you've been very honest about that. heard you talking about it when you did "snl," when i was there. how do they feel about the fact that you always talk about how rough they were? >> i don't really care, because -- [ laughter ] genuinely, because it's karma. like i was the little sister. there was nothing i could do. they threw me down the stairs. i thought i was going to die every day. [ light laughter ] about and then i turned out to be famous, and then i talk about it on talk shows. like that is perfect karma for me. [ cheers and applause ] i feel like that's, like -- i don't feel bad about that. >> seth: is it true that they
1:11 am
each have one thing they did to you, that you aren't allowed to talk about? you gave them one? >> i'm not even allowed to really say if that happened or did not happen. >> seth: but we should all go about our days knowing -- >> but there could be a scenario where my family told me there's certain stories that i'm not allowed to tell. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's good to know. >> there's obviously a statute of limitations. >> seth: i'm so happy that i can go through the rest of my life knowing, no matter what i hear your brothers did, there's one thing worse. >> way worse. >> seth: how could anything be worse than that? it's probably that whole peeing not standing up. that somehow comes into play. >> i watched him do it -- that's actually true. i did that when i was little. >> seth: what's that? >> i saw my brother peeing standing up. and i was like, "oh." [ laughter and applause ] doesn't work the same. [ laughter ] that, surprisingly, we were not expected to talk about tonight. >> seth: that's true.

[ cheers and applause ] welcome back to "late night," everyone. our next guest is a tony award winning actor who is currently starring on broadway as the emcee in "cabaret." ladies and gentlemen, alan cumming. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: so, so wonderful to have you here. >> lovely to be here. >> seth: i saw the show last night. you were excellent in it. and this is a role, a show that you did 1993 in london, 1998 in new york. what made you want to play it again? and how has it been a different experience? how have the audiences been different? >> well the audiences are hilarious, actually -- because the roundabout theatre company we're producing at has a subscription audience. for the first three or four months people are subscribers, and that tends to be an older demographic. >> seth: right. >> and so there's a bit that i go into the audience and take
1:18 am
someone out to dance, a woman and a man. and so that has been hilarious of late. 'cause -- well, you know the bit. because i went in, a couple matinees ago -- i went in and i said, "i'm going to take you," to this man. "i'm going to take upstairs." and he went, "i have a cane." i said, "oh." [ laughter ] and i went, someone else -- i went, "oh, you have -- you can't walk either, can you?" [ laughter ] so i was actually standing there, and i yell at the theater going, can anyone walk to the stage? [ laughter ] i need someone who can walk. and then other things that, when i get ladies of a certain age up -- the thing is -- how do i put this delicately. sometimes people look younger because they've had alterations to their face. [ laughter ] and you think, "oh, they look pretty sprightly." then you get them up to dance, you think, "oh, they're not. they're 100 years old." [ laughter ] so it's quite interesting just dealing with the difference between someone sitting down with their face and when they stand up. but i'm having a great time. i really like it and i -- it's just interesting to do a role again at a different time in your life, you know? >> seth: yeah. >> when you're older. >> seth: yeah, so it's 20 years since the first time you did it.
1:19 am
and you're very active in the show? >> yeah. >> seth: it must be quite an accomplishment, though. because, i mean, the rest of the -- the rest of -- >> are 22 years old, yeah. yeah. yeah, i'm dancing with girls that are, like, 24. >> seth: that must be quite an accomplishment. >> for an ancient person, it's great. i'm getting -- [ light laughter ] it is actually kind of amazing. i feel like -- that's one of the reasons i wanted to do it was just to see if i could still do it. and i can't. yes, i can! [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: have audiences responded to the material any differently? >> i think, actually, this -- i think people are more kind of connected in a real gut way. because you know, it's about life and nazism. and the message is how we all must cebrate difference, but be also vigilant of things happening that we don't nip in the bud, in terms of things -- so i don't know. the last time we did it -- 'cause it's quite sexy and there's a lot of kind of simulated sexy things going on. and i think last time, in 1998, when i did it in america --
1:20 am
'cause, you know, america's a little more puritanical than the rest of the world. so i think they were so overwhelmed by all the saucy stuff that the real message didn't get through as much. i think this time it's a more powerful evening because of that. it's still sexy, though. >> seth: it's very sexy. >> it's a lot of ass. >> seth: i notice when -- [ laughter ] >> seth: and speaking actually of ass -- >> oh, well -- >> seth: because i want to jump to this. because you're ass -- you're ass -- i hope i'm not giving anything away. it's one of the more memorable parts. you give it away. yeah. [ laughter ] for the price of one ticket. when -- we do see you -- and i hope i'm not giving anything away. you said it's about the rise of nazism. you have a swastika tattooed on your butt cheek. >> not permanently. although, i do have it on my ass right now because i did a matinee today. so for matinee days i keep -- i have a -- i have a -- i have a swastika on my bum right now. [ laughter ] >> seth: you really can't tell. you know? >> it's so weird. it's such a strange thing because last time -- like, i've got it down now. and it's like, it comes off pretty easily with these alcohol
1:21 am
wipes. but on matinee days, i leave it on because of the two shows. but last time, when i did it in 1998, it was -- i didn't know why, but they started painting it -- it was almost like a sort of temporary tattoo thing. it was really hard. unless you scrubbed it off with exfoliater -- and you know i enjoy an exfoliation from time to time. [ laughter ] but sometimes -- and then, also, takes a long -- you know, who cares? i'll just leave it on. but then sometimes people would see it, my bum, in situations. and i would forget i had a swastika on. [ laughter ] so like if you're having sex, the people in there, all getting into it. and they're like, you have a swastika on your ass. [ laughter ] oh, i forgot to tell you, sorry. i don't believe it in that at all. it's for my work. [ laughter ] >> seth: saying you have one is not the end of a conversation, it's the beginning of a conversation. >> but if you have to say it, then -- just recently i had to go and get some shots for my doctor. i got some in the morning.
1:22 am
i was coming back later, after the matinee. and i said to him, "just to let you know that, when i return this evening for my last shot, i will have a swastika on my bum. [ light laughter ] he's like --- he's going, "what the hell is he talking about?" and then i truly did, you know. >> seth: he probably was worried it was a side effect from this earlier shot. [ laughter ] >> yeah, i know. the thing about it is, when you get shots in your bum -- i don't know if you had those series of shots in your bum. is that you get a kind of -- you know, you kind of get swollen. so i had this real sort of beyonce bum for a few days. when you're showing your bum off in public -- actually when you have a big one -- and it's also -- because you know, you came to my dressing room, there's so many stairs. so everything's really firm right now, but -- [ laughter ] and i remember being very disappointed when the swelling went down in my bum. because i was, "there goes beyonce." [ laughter ] >> seth: there goes the dream. you are also on "the good wife." >> yes. >> seth: which shoots here in new york. [ cheers and applause ] >> yes. >> seth: and "the good wife," this year -- i mean, there was a
1:23 am
major plot development on the show. josh charles' character -- >> got killed. yes. >> seth: he got killed. and this is something that, obviously, josh knew. you knew. the audience didn't know. i remember being on twitter that night. just an explosion of people, like you never see. was it hard for you keeping that secret? >> it was the hardest thing i've ever had to do. i'm terrible at keeping secrets. i just hate secrets. like, if i bought you a present, i'd be, "seth, i bought you a book!" [ laughter ] i just -- and the thing was we knew so far in advance. because it's -- it's like quinn and josh. you know, the previous season -- they wanted to go, so they said, let's try and do -- so we knew why. we knew it was going to happen. i told loads of people. [ laughter ] i don't -- i just kind of got a bit of turrets about it. [ laughter ] luckily, it didn't get out. i mean, i kind of started to be panicked. i would tell people. and i'd say, "didn't hear from me." [ laughter ] even though during fashion week, i walked in the fashion show for kenneth cole. and i told the hair guy that was doing my hair. i don't know why. i almost -- he hardly mentioned
1:24 am
it. it was getting near the time when it was going to be on tv. >> seth: i think he told the profession that's most known for gossip. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: it was like that or a radio operator. >> i was really like, "you never heard it from me." [ laughter ] >> seth: what does that mean? i means, otherwise, the swan will see you. [ laughter ] >> yes, don't make me get my swan out. >> seth: thank you so much for being here. and thank you so much for coming between two shows. i hope you have an excellent show this evening. give it up for alan cumming, everyone!
