12:37 am
music from big data and joywave, featuring the 8g band. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ and now, here he is, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: good evening. good evening, i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] that's just wonderful. that is just wonderful to hear. we begin tonight with something you probably heard about. orlando bloom and justin bieber almost got into a bar fight yesterday at a nightclub in spain. luckily the fight was quickly broken up before anyone's hair got mussed. [ light laughter ]
12:38 am
many are calling the fight the "thrilla in vanilla." [ light laughter ] the thrilla in vanilla. some political news. in a speech today, president obama criticized congress for trying to sue him, saying that they need to focus on the economy and should stop just hating all the time. john boehner responded, "maybe we would stop hating, if you'd stop frontin'." [ laughter ] because when you front you get hated. [ light laughter ] that is the congressional motto. i know it's in latin so you can't tell, but that's what it is. this is amazing. according to new estimates, beyonce and jay-z will make $84 million from their world tour, which is good because $84 million is an easy number to divide by two. [ laughter ] [ audience oohs ] so that's good. just makes it easier. it just makes it easier. [ applause ] listen to this, "fifty shades of
12:39 am
gray" -- "fifty shades of gray" has become the most viewed trailer of 2014 with over 36 million views on youtube in its first week. and i think it's great that for once, married women had to clear their browser history. [ laughter ] you see? see how awful it is to have to hide who you are from your spouse? now you know how i feel. [ light laughter ] share my shame. some sports news. this weekend major league baseball pitchers recorded the two millionth strikeout in the history of the league. while i recorded my two millionth strikeout during my junior prom. [ light laughter ] try to keep up, baseball. [ light laughter ] more sports news. cleveland browns wide receiver josh gordon claims he failed his most recent drug test because he ingested second hand marijuana smoke.
12:40 am
said gordon, "that's right. i smoked some with one hand. then i smoked some with my second hand." [ laughter ] because, yeah. [ applause ] i smoke a lot of marijuana. sometimes one of my hands will get tired. joint cramp. any morrissey fans here? any fans of morrissey? [ cheer ] [ laughter ] i was surprised by this. a former bodyguard is suing morrissey, claiming he was fired because he was unwilling to beat up an over-eager fan. i guess he figured anyone who was that into morrissey had already suffered enough. [ laughter ] this is an odd story. according to french officials, the gardens at the louvre have become overrun with rats. though officials later
12:41 am
apologized and promised to refer to us as americans in the future. [ laughter ] [ french accent ] "this was a mistake. it was a slip of the tongue. also, they way you scurry around, sometimes you look like rats. [ light laughter ] that is not my fault. it is the fault of the way that you scurry. scurry less and we will call you rats less." [ laughter ] here's some tech news. wikipedia is now accepting donations using the online currency bitcoin. so now you can support information you are not sure is true with currency you are not sure is money. [ laughter and applause ] finally. i guess this is no surprise. a new report shows that people are eating less beef than they did in previous years. apparently the only people still
12:42 am
having beef are justin bieber and orlando bloom. [ laughter ] the thrilla in vanilla. this is unfortunate. a new jersey woman crashed her car into a pole while still in costume from a clown show, a clown show she had just performed. fortunately she was unhurt, and when police arrived she already twisted the airbag into a funny little dog. [ laughter ] this is pretty cool. in response to a recent meat recall, mcdonald's in japan will soon start selling tofu mcnuggets. when they ask, "do you want fries with that?" respond "oh, i only want fries. thank you. tofu mcnuggets." finally, i don't know what to make of this. toys r us is selling a new doll with an anatomically correct penis. an anatomically correct penis. even weirder, it's a "my little
12:43 am
pony." [ laughter ] [ audience oohs ] ladies and gentlemen, this is the 8g band! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: how we doing 8g band? everybody good? chris pratt is on the show tonight. i'm so excited about that. [ cheers and applause ] he's in the new film "guardians of the galaxy." i'm very excited to see it. i got to see it last night. there was a screening last night, and i found out i could go to it, which is great. and i asked my wife, "do you want to go to the screening of this movie, 'guardians of the galaxy?'" i should point out, i've been talking about it a lot recently. i was at comic-con last weekend. i'm a big fan of comic books. we recently moved. we've had a lot of discussions about what to do with all my comic books, all my comic book
12:44 am
art. my wife does not take the position of, we should get more of it. we should fill the whole apartment." [ laughter ] last night, i said to her, "hey, do you want to see a movie? do you want to go to the screening with me?" she said, "what is it called?" i said,"'guardians of the galaxy.'" she said, "what's it about?" what's it about? i don't know, what do you want me to tell you? it's about a single girl who moves to new york city and tries to find love in a crazy world. [ laughter ] it is about space pirates! [ light laughter ] there is a talking raccoon. and a wood -- a tree man. this is 'guardians of the galaxy.' there will be multiple planets. one will be in peril. people will try to stop him. [ light laughter ] she said, "i don't know. doesn't sound like the kind of movie that i like." i'm like -- we came and she liked it because it is really great. also, i, made some jokes about justin bieber tonight. i felt bad about a joke i made about justin bieber last night. we made a joke about how he doesn't have the thickest mustache when he grows a mustache. not the most impressive mustache. i feel bad because i can't grow
12:45 am
a mustache either, but it's harder for me because my dad was here last night. my dad has an incredible mustache. my dad is of a generation where men cared about their mustaches. he still wears it as a hair flag of pride. [ laughter ] and my dad has had a mustache my entire life except for a two week period. we went on vacation. i feel like my father was probably in his mid 40s and came to the conclusion if he shaved his mustache off he would look younger. so he decided on vacation to shave his mustache off and surprise us. so we were in our hotel room and my dad came out of the bathroom, it was like, surprise! we thought like a stranger had broken into the apartment. [ laughter ] it was so terrifying. when some one has had a mustache your whole life then they don't have a mustache, you're like, "intruder!" [ laughter ] thankfully it grew back. thankfully it grew back. we have such a great show tonight. as i mentioned, star of "guardians of the galaxy," chris pratt is here. [ cheers and applause ]
12:46 am
such a fun movie. he's so good in it. also, joining us from the hit show "orange is the new black" laverne cox. any "orange is the new black" fans here? [ cheers and applause ] and we'll have music from big data and joywave. [ cheers and applause ] two bands tonight. so, anyone here tonight use twitter? are there any twitter users here? [ cheers and applause ] great. well, every now and then i like to take a look at what is trending on twitter because it keeps me updated on what is going on in the world. some of the thing that trended yesterday, were #israel, #obama, #russia. millions of people who were tweeting about those topics, educating me about those topics. we got to thinking what were topics that didn't even come close to trending yesterday. we thought we'd find out in a segment we're calling "the least trending topics on twitter." so here is our first least trending topic. #shovelselfie. [ light laughter ]
12:47 am
you guys remember when the world cup was number one trending topic on twitter for a month. i know for a fact that won't be the case for shovel selfie. take a look at some of the tweets. @dr.nizbit. "keep this little baby i picked up last night at home depot. #shovelselfie." let's see another one. there were only three. @joeburner tweeted, "gonna stab me some earth tonight. #shovelselfie." apparently there's pictures of men and their shovels. this last one is a little disturbing, i will say. this is from @caveman173. he tweets, "my wife said it's me or the shovel and i said, 'seeya later.' #shovelselfie." [ light laughter ] i feel so bad for that woman who is no longer with caveman173. [ laughter ] here's another topic that didn't get a lot of traction yesterday. #moneyintoilet. you know how people will sometimes show off their wealth by making it rain by throwing
12:48 am
their money in the air? well apparently these people are trying to show off their wealth using a new technique of putting their money in a toilet. let's take a look at some of these. @ryguymalone tweeted, "i am so rich with dope ass cash, i done stacked the bills deep in the bowl. #moneyintoilet." [ laughter ] and here's one more. this is interesting it was this person's first tweet. @mr.clooney2133 tweets, "hello, twitter. look at this. #moneyintoilet, #seasonthreeofernowondvd." [ laughter ] wow. anyway welcome to twitter, george. finally here's one hashtag that has one tweet and one tweet only. #lampfights. let's see who tweeted about lamp fights. @chrisrobbie22 says, "check out the sick video me and my buddy made. i'm super proud of it. #lampfight." i guess he made a video. let's take a look. >> ah.
12:49 am
light's out for you. >> ah. oh no, my friend. my only friend. oh! >> oh, you're back. i want more. [ laughter ] >> seth: such a complete narrative arch in such a short video. i can't believe lampfight didn't trend. maybe they will next week. those are the least trending topic on twitter. we'll be right back with more "late night."

1:06 am
that's what he says every time he says anything. and they have a good banter between rocket and groot, because rocket understands what groot is saying. so, no matter what groot is saying, he says, "i am groot." but he had to say it several different ways. much like, say, an actor doing shakespeare. >> seth: sure. >> you don't know what the hell they're saying, but you can tell. >> seth: yeah, yeah. right. >> their hands are going. >> seth: there's no way of knowing what the words mean. >> there's literally no way of determining what someone in a shakespeare play is saying. >> seth: right. >> it's a foreign language that no one ever heard of. >> seth: right. you go like costumes. and you assume if some one dies they were a good guy. >> yeah. the good guys die. and then facial expressions. sad. >> seth: sad. you know sad, you know happy. >> you know happy. >> seth: those are the only two i think in shakespeare. i've seen a lot of shakespeare. i think it's just sad and happy. >> it's pretty simple stuff. yeah. >> seth: you had to get -- i feel like vin had to say it bunch of different ways. but you had to get in tremendous shape for this movie. how long did you have to like, get exercising to be ready to

1:09 am
you were in the wrong. >> when i framed the letter next to the frame of me naked, i was like, this is as a reminder.

[ cheers and applause ] did it knock you off your feet? were you expecting it at all? how did you react when you found out? >> i was not expecting it. i have a confession. the night before i went to, which is the website where you can kinda make your predictions for award shows and stuff. and i saw what they were saying. and no -- like one person predict that i'd be nominated. i was like, "oh it's not going to happen." so i want to sleep. and so i woke up. and like i had all these messages from my agent and publicist. and i was like, "what?" and then i went online to confirm that i indeed was nominated. and the moment -- i was like -- i was like in shock and disbelief. and then i jumped up and down. and then i cried. [ light laughter ] >> seth: so you ran the gamut. you did pretty much all the emotions. >> i about like five to ten minutes. i just had the whole thing. i was literally jumping up and
1:18 am
down in my 315 square foot new york apartment. [ laughter ] >> seth: the true new york emmy nomination experience. >> i know, right? >> seth: it's exciting for anyone to get nominated for an emmy award. but you are the first openly transgendered person ever to get nominated for an emmy award. does it make it even more special for you? [ cheers and applause ] yes. >> you know, it's a dream come true, you know? i think a lot of actors -- i just like the work. i do love -- i love being a working actor. but i've dreamed about this my whole life. i have been giving emmy award winning speeches in my shower my entire life. >> seth: gotcha -- [ light laughter ] how are they, too long, too short. do you think they're good? >> i always do them really quickly because i am afraid they gonna to cut me off. so like i think about thanking everybody really, really quickly. >> seth: you should turn the water -- cold as you go. and that's like the way you can play it off. and oh, my god they're turning me to cold. i got to wrap it up. >> it's a really good idea. but if anything, i have been thinking a lot about sydney poitier, when who won an oscar 50 years ago actually.
1:19 am
he was the first black actor to win a leading actor oscar. and he said that he didn't feel like black actors had overcome, because he was the only one. so when i think about the sort of historical piece of this, it think it's so important there is more of us nominated and there's more us of us who get to have a role like this and live our dreams. >> seth: that's great. but there has to be a first. so congratulations again. [ cheers and applause ] and you were an advocate for transgendered people for a long time before the show, you've been an advocate since. how have people responded? is it important for people in that community to have someone like you on that show? >> it's been amazing. and i think it is absolutely important. i met this woman in edmonton, canada, earlier this year, who -- when she met me she was in tears. and she said that watching the show, and particularly episode three that i'm nominated for in season one, that that show inspired her to come out to her wife, she had not yet begun to transition. came out to her wife. she has a kid. and she has come out to her wife. she's completed her transition
1:20 am
at work. and her family is intact. and it very much mirrors sophia's story, and that happened because of this character. it's literally is changing people's lives. and she recently sent me a photo of her with her family, and they're a lovely family. >> seth: that's so wonderful. one of the great devices of the show is this way we see the characters. you know, and how they found their way to prison. in episode three, the one you are talking about, we see sylvia pre-transition, and i didn't realize that that was your brother played you. >> yes. >> seth: so how did that come about? >> you have heard by now that my brother plays sophia pre-transition. >> seth: but i didn't know that. because -- he looks -- you guys look a lot alike. >> well we're identical twins. >> seth: oh, well there you go. [ laughter ] oh, now that's interesting. i don't know if you guys know that. that means they look alike all -- [ laughter ] >> yes. >> seth: some say, identical. [ laughter ] >> yes. well i, of course, because you know how we actors are. i, of course, wanted to play sophia pre-transition. i was like, "who is going to play it? i have to do it."
1:21 am
and we did like an eight hour hair and makeup test. we finally got to this very butch look, and i remember going to jodie foster, who directed the episode. i'm like, butching it up. she's at lunch. and she is like, "we have to hire some one." [ laughter ] i wasn't butch enough apparently to play myself pre-transition. and so then they were doing auditions for folks and the casting director contacted my agent and was like, you know, "can we use a photo of laverne for the break out audition?" and my agent was like, "well you know she has a twin brother." and jane huston was like -- [ gasps ] "i have to meet him." [ laughter ] and then my brother was like, when i mentioned it to him, i was like, "would you be interested in doing this?" he was like, "how much does it pay?" [ laughter ] and i guess it paid enough 'cause he did it. >> seth: yeah. and he is not an actor, correct? >> he's not an actor. he's a musician. his name is m. lamar -- >> seth: his name's not, right? >> it's m. lamar. >> seth: okay, i gotcha. >> not that's his website. >> seth: no, i get it. it's the future. [ laughter ] >> yeah, he has very long hair. and he --they wanted him to cut
1:22 am
his hair, you know, to be more butch. and he was like, "i'm not doing that. no." he is not an actor. so he's like, there's no investment in it for him. me, i'm like, "yeah, i'll cut my hair." -- or take it off. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: preferece, take it off secondly. and that's so amazing. i remember seeing in the credits and seeing that jodie foster directed that episode. that must have been amazing in it's own right. >> it was so incredible. so my very first day of working on "orange is new black" i arrived and i'm like, "what is the food like?" so i went to crafty -- craft services. and the food was delicious. i was in craft services and this woman comes up to me. she's like, "hi, i'm jodie, i'm directing episode three." and i'm like -- i'm just like -- "i know who you are." and she's like, i was just standing there like, jodie foster is talking to me. why is she talking to me? she's like, "it's your first day right? let me show you around." and then she commences to give me a tour of the set. and i am just like, "why is jodie foster talking to me?" [ laughter ] i am walking around like, "she's asking me these questions about
1:23 am
my life like she's really interested." and, i didn't understand at that point the that episode three would be my back story episode. and i am just like -- and i got back to my dressing room and i called my brother, actually. i was like -- and i am shaking. i was shaking. i was like, "i just met jodie foster. and i have to act now. i don't think i can do it. [ hyperventilates ] he was like, "just breathe. just breathe. you can do this." and i did it. and now i am nominated for an emmy. [ applause ] >> seth: yeah! always remember to breathe. always remember to breathe. >> always remember to breathe. >> seth: congratulations once again. laverne cox everyone.
