12:43 am
had to grow a mustache for the show and it's hilarious when someone you've never known -- you've known him your whole life, he's never had a mustache, all of a sudden has a mustache. here's my brother rocking a pretty good, thick mustache. [ laughter ] it's very impressive because i could not do that. [ laughter ] no matter how much time you gave me. even after a month, i look -- you remember old black and white movies where the werewolf and they would do it is like stop motion animation -- they would just keep putting a little bit more hair on a guy? i'm like the first of that. [ laughter ] i'm like, one past regular guy on the ten-step to werewolf. and you guys will admit, you will admit my brother and i look alike? would you agree with that? you know what's different? here's the thing. people ask me all the time if i'm jewish. they never ask my brother. we are the same person except i'm the one that could be jewish. [ laughter ] that's the difference, if you're wondering. but, here's the update. so, my dad -- my brother's never had a mustache. my dad's always had a mustache, our whole life my dad has had a mustache.
12:44 am
and i saw my dad this weekend. he was saying, he's thinking about, he wants to get rid of his mustache. he's looking for a change. and we're a little worried because he's only done this once before. when we were younger, we were on vacation and he decided to shave it off. but, he waited until my mom and brother and i were at the beach. and then we came back to the hotel room and he jumped out -- [ laughter ] -- of the bathroom without his mustache and we all screamed because we thought he was, like, a weird pervy dude. [ laughter ] that's how different he looks. and my dad, it's impressive. he's actually in the guinness book of world records for this. my dad is the only guy who looks more like a pedophile without a mustache. [ laughter ] it's very hard to pull off. very hard to pull off. i saw my dad, i was in sweden this weekend. and one of our guests tonight alicia is from sweden. and i want to ask her this. because we went to a restaurant. it was me.
12:45 am
it was my parents. it was my wife and her sister. and the five of us went to a restaurant and the waitress came over and we had asked for english menus. and the waitress came over and she just went, "how many meatballs do you want?" [ laughter ] i was like, what do you mean? and she said, "oh, just americans, all they ever want to order is swedish meatballs." and, you know, we were all offended. and also super bummed out because that is definitely what we wanted to order. [ laughter ] i had gone online. i'd looked for best place to buy swedish meatballs. and so it's that interesting thing where you have to play offended, while at the same time you're like, "well, in all -- i can't -- well if you're going to be like that. [ laughter ] one, two, three, four, five orders of swedish meatballs. we're going to prove a point by teaching you a lesson about stereotypes." moving on, so if you guys are anything like me, that means you cannot grow a mustache, but also if you guys are like me, you are
12:46 am
on twitter. and every now and again i like to take a look at what's trending because it keeps me updated on what's going on in the world. so, now some of the things that trended yesterday were #obama, #hillary, #madmax. millions of people were tweeting about these topics. but, what were some topics that didn't even come close to trending yesterday? let's find out in a segment we call, "the least trending topics on twitter." [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: so, here was a least trending topic on twitter yesterday. #squirrelwin. [ laughter ] from what i can gather, from these very small amount of tweets, these are people who take photos of squirrels on the street eating human food instead of nuts. and then refer to them as squirrel wins. [ laughter ] like i said, this did not trend. this was least trending. let's take a look. @gorpthedorp, saw this smart little guy chowing down on a hot dog. one man's trash is a lucky squirrel's dinner. #squirrelwin.
12:47 am
[ applause ] yeah. did not really catch on, but there was another one. let's see the next one. @donksausedump, when it comes to acorns this guy said, "forget about it me wanta da pizza." #squirrelwin. [ laughter ] i want to point out one of the reasons that person obviously has mental issues is, he spelled it, "forget about it." instead of "fugget about it." so, whoever that person was that wrote that tweet and chose to go "forget" instead of "fugget about it." and it's probably -- you know what i realized? it's probably a writer on this show. [ laughter ] let's see the next one. @malemadonna, dis playboy got himself a sweet tooth. so glad he dun come up on some smooth sweet cream. #squirrelwin. all right. let's move on to the next least trending on twitter hashtag. #summertreeselfie. these are tweets from people who like to put up summer trees
12:48 am
instead of christmas trees. let's take a look. @wavepoolsrock -- [ laughter ] -- just put up my summer tree. wonder what summer santa will bring me when he surfs in. #summertreeselfie. let's see the next tweet. @medmaskbabe -- [ laughter ] got some big cool ray ban shades for my summer tree. they cost $4,000. #totallyworthit. #summertreeselfie. let's move on. [ applause ] yeah. let's applause those dummies. let's take a look at the next least trending topic. #copsinleggings. [ laughter ] so, i looked at these. what these are, are photos of new york city police officers wearing leggings for some reason. let's take a look. @donnagape -- [ laughter ] -- overheard the cop in pants ask the other one, where did you get those cute leggings. cop in leggings said, forever 21. #copsinleggings. [ applause ]
12:49 am
and finally, the least trending topic on twitter last night. the topic that got very little trending at all. [ audience ohs ] #elmokidnapping. now, at first i didn't know what this could be, so i took a look at the tweet. @montrosefan, on vacation in nyc and think we saw elmo get kidnapped. #elmokidnapping. looks like there is a video, let's watch it. >> wahoo! new york city! whoo! hey, mom. check it out. i made it. look at these -- oh. oh! >> seth: those were the least trending topics on twitter. you guys, we have a great show for you tonight. we have the co-host of this sunday's tony awards. alan cumming will be joining us this evening.

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ how are you? >> i'm pretty good. thank you. >> seth: so i'm very excited about sunday night. i will go on record as saying i think the tony awards are the best awards show we have in this country. [ cheers and applause ] we -- you actually get to see a performance. you know, everything else you have to see clips. but this -- you actually see -- everybody shows up and does their thing. >> yeah. it is amazing, actually. and also these people are doing shows all the time -- eight times a week, antheyey're still coming on. but the other thing about being the host of it is weird is that
12:55 am
when you host a show normally -- like if you host some film awards, you don't have to, like, make a film. >> seth: right. >> but when you host the tonys, you actually have to be in these musical numbers. >> seth: yeah. >> and i'm not that -- you know, i've been in some musicals but i'm not, like, really the tiptop -- >> seth: this is -- because you are -- [ audience ohs ] >> no, i wasn't fishing. >> seth: well, i saw you in "cabaret." you were wonderful in "cabaret." but that is sort of -- you have -- because hugh jackman has done this. neil patrick harris has done this. >> yeah. i just don't know that many musicals. and you know, tommy tune is being honored. he's going to win a special lifetime achievement. he won ten tonys. [ cheers and applause ] and we're doing a tribute thing to him. and it's sort of like being in a weird kind of virtual reality dream for me. because we're dancing and singing in a sort of a mashup of three very famous shows that tommy tune's done, none of which i know, and none of which i really understand. so i'm doing it like a robot, like a dog learning tricks. [ laughter ] and there's all these dancers around me. >> seth: i always -- whenever i'm around broadway people, i'm always so embarrassed to admit i don't know musicals.
12:56 am
>> well, imagine being a broadway person and being like that. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, that's true. must be even harder. >> it's terrible. everyone thinks i'm -- people are shocked. like, i remember once i went -- you know little darren criss, who's doing "hedwig" right now. >> seth: yeah. >> i went with him -- there's a place down in the west village called "marie's crisis," it's a piano bar. and we went there and they said, "oh, alan and darren, would you sing a song?" why don't we sing -- and they said, "alan, why don't you sing one of your songs from 'cabaret'?" and this was a couple years ago. and i was like, "okay." and i'd had a few drinks. [ light laughter ] and in the middle of the song, i forgot the words. [ laughter ] and i saw all these people were going -- they were just horrified. >> seth: you've only done that show, what? thousands of times? >> 75,000 times, yeah. it was in one of my 15-year gaps. >> seth: okay, gotcha. now, you're co-hosting so you at least have that. >> yes, i do. >> seth: with kristin chenoweth. >> yes. >> seth: now she is doing a show right now. >> yeah. oh, she's hilarious in it. "on the 20th century." it's really great if you get a chance. >> seth: it's a great show, but she has to rest her voice. she's on voice rest. >> well, kind of. [ laughter ] we went to her dressing room the other night for a meeting, and i
12:57 am
came in and she had this little board, you know, with a marker. >> seth: like a dry erase board. >> yeah. and she had written, like, "omfg" on it. something like that. [ light laughter ] and then she -- and then after about a minute she comes -- [ whispering ] and then after like two minutes she was talking. and then after she was, like, screaming it. [ laughter ] vocal rest lasted about 30 seconds. so hilarious. she just -- she can't stop talking. [ laughter ] >> seth: you guys are very close. i will say it seems like you have some chemistry. you posted this photo. here are the two of you. it seems like you know each other, i would say. [ laughter ] >> this is on saturday, after i went to see her show. but what i think is hilarious about this picture is you see my husband looking on. [ laughter ] i just think she's the funniest thing. she's like a national treasure, i think. >> seth: you mentioned your husband because you used kristin to pull off a pretty good prank on your husband. >> yeah, see, so years ago i produced a documentary called
12:58 am
"show business: the road to broadway," and it was about a season in broadway and four different musicals, one of which was "wicked." so during the course of it -- i had seen lots of footage of it, and kristin -- there's some of kristin in the studio making the "wicked" album. and she was singing that song -- "popular." ♪ i know about popular m like that, you see? and so it became in our household -- like if you wanted to annoy either of us, we would sing "popular." and you'd go, "shut up!" [ laughter ] and so when the premiere of the film was on, i was on the red carpet, and that weird thing when a fan of yours comes on the red carpet. you're like, "hi." and you're having a conversation like this. "nice to see you. how are you doing?" so that was -- kristin came on, and i went "popular. i'm all about --" and she went, "shut up! i hate that song." [ laughter ] and i go, "not as much as me." and grant, my husband, was sitting over there, and i said, "oh, my god." she hadn't met him at this point. it was a long time ago. i went, "oh, my god. you see that tall, baldy guy over there? if you go over and sing 'popular' to him, it would be hilarious because he hates the song." and she's like, "okay."
12:59 am
[ laughter ] so off she goes. and he's just sitting there having a drink. and he said after, he goes, "this girl came over and i thought, 'she's like the "wicked" girl.' and she's tiny and she goes, 'popular. i'm all about popular.'" and he's like -- [ laughter ] and then she said, "alan told me you hated that song." she's such a good sport. >> seth: she is a great sport. now, is it a little bit harder for her? because i imagine she's going to go through multiple costume changes through the course of the night. >> oh, i'm matching her. >> seth: you are? >> oh, it's fashion central, baby. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: you're going fashion. wow. don't mind if you do. how many looks are you going to have? >> well, i think there's eight parts. and i've got one for the red carpet. nine. >> seth: nine? >> yeah, nine. [ audience oohs ] oh, yeah. a range of colors. a range of fabrics. a range of designers. >> seth: you got to keep a lot of people happy. >> i do. i just sort of think -- i think it's boring when the boy just wears a tuxedo and just, you know, stands there. looks like a cardboard cutout.
1:00 am
so, we're -- yeah, so i'm mixing it up a bit. >> seth: great. i look forward to it. you also -- at the same time that you're doing this, your cabaret show at cafe carlyle just opened. >> yeah. >> seth: so you've been doing that at the same time. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. >> seth: that is a very intimate room. have you enjoyed the intimacy of the room so far? [ laughter ] >> well, yes. i really like it, actually, that sort of way where -- you know, you can see everyone. you can see everyone's face. you can make eye contact with everyone by the end of the show. but it's kind of weird because people -- when people have dinner and then you come on. so people are kind of still eating at the start. so i'm singing this really tender song. i hear the clinking of -- i can smell, like, shrimp and things. [ light laughter ] it's really weird. and last night i was literally at my crotch level on the stage, there was like a steak. because it was very close. and there's a lady, who actually turned out to be a reviewer, with her feet up on the thing like this. >> seth: really? >> yes. she had her feet on the thing. i wanted to kick them. [ laughter ]
1:01 am
>> seth: why didn't you? >> because i saw her with a note pad. [ laughter ] >> seth: oh, yeah. the note pad keeps you from doing that. >> i really do like that, performing in that way. like, i guess it's like when you do standup. because it kind of is standup with singing. i tell funny stories in the middle. it's just you connect with the audience in such a different way than playing a part. i really have come to enjoy it. >> seth: that's wonderful. and you just finished "cabaret." so you took 15 years off. >> yeah. >> seth: you did it again. you did it with three different actresses. >> yeah. michelle williams. uh -- >> seth: emma stone. >> emma stone. [ laughter ] i've been drinking. and sienna miller. yeah. >> seth: it must be fascinating to do the show with three such different actresses. >> it is, because you know, it shows you that that character, sally bowles, is such a great role that such different interpretations so close together can all work in different ways and bring different things to it. it was really -- they're all different. like michelle was very kind of vulnerable and fragile in a way. and then kind of emma was more sort of sparkly, and sienna was
1:02 am
kind of like very raucous, and kind of -- actually, we were -- i called her my evil twin. >> seth: oh wow. >> yeah we kind of had a party, fun time together. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's wonderful. you do something else. i want to ask you about something you do on instagram. this is every saturday. >> saturday night on broadway. yes. i do this thing. >> seth: so you film yourself. >> yes. it started off -- i made a video on saturday night round about 8:00. and it started off -- when i was doing "cabaret," the stage manager, this lovely man called artie, he would always on a saturday night, he'd go, "this is your half hour call. it's saturday night on broadway." which i thought was so fun. so i started filming, going, "it's saturday night on broadway. it's saturday night on broadway." and i did it every night. every saturday. and then when it was coming to the end of the run, people were going, "please keep doing this." so i've been doing it all around the world since the end of march. and i wonder if i could do it with the audience tonight. >> seth: yes. [ cheers and applause ] so you -- so here's what we'll do. you have it. oh, great. all right, we'll go down. and so nobody here has to do

[ applause ] i get that that's the low end. but like when you go to a nice restaurant -- that wouldn't be a crazy thing for a swedish person? >> no it is probably. i don't think i come off as swedish when i don't live there anymore. >> seth: yeah. >> i'm not there much, but now when i go back, it's like one thing that's become very patriotic. i go to the restaurants and i only have very, very swedish dishes. >> seth: gotcha. >> like now i really want to go back for midsummer just to have lot's of pickled herring. >> seth: there you go. i will say i stayed away from the pickled herring because they tried to push that on you. >> did you? it's really good. >> seth: yeah, i don't think so. [ laughter ] >> did you try it? >> seth: no, i didn't. so i don't want to say that i have proof that it's not good, but it doesn't look good. >> there's so many different
1:13 am
flavors. >> seth: that's the thing that makes it even grosser to me. [ laughter ] because then all a sudden -- 'cause the other thing that comes in a lot of flavors is ice cream. and then i start thinking of fish as ice cream. and now -- now i don't want to eat ice cream. so, it's a slippery slope. but you -- you did a film where you had to speak danish. this isn't just a danish accent. >> no. >> seth: did you know any danish? >> i mean, swedish and danish are, you know, similar, but no i -- when i went for actually the last audition in denmark, i still had to speak english for the director. and i had my friend's mom who was half danish, half swedish recording lines over the phone. you know, i just tried to, you know, listen to that and repeat. and then when we came, i really tried my best to when he spoke a few lines of danish for me to understand. i don't know, i said just so many, like, excuse me that day. and by the end of that day invited me for a drink that night. and, you know, he spoke with me
1:14 am
in english and suddenly switched to danish and wanted to tell me something important. and i was like, i can't say what for the 50th time so i just smiled. and he said it again. and i was like, [ bleep ] i'm screwed. [ laughter ] and then he's like -- in english, i just gave you the part. so, i was like, thank god he didn't run out the door. [ laughter ] he actually believed i could do it. so, yeah. i had not a dialect coach, but a language coach. >> seth: i'd like to think of him going back to the producers saying the good news. she said yes but she said yes in english because she doesn't understand the language the movie's in. [ laughter ] you -- i wanted to congratulate you. "ex machina" was such a fantastic movie. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. >> seth: and -- so, here's the thing -- obviously you have the english accent, you had to speak in danish. you had to have robot voice. how did you come to your robot voice? >> i don't know. i think, you know, i wanted --
1:15 am
it was something -- i think it started trying to find a physicality for ava. alex gave me -- alex garland the director gave me a great idea. you know, just try to be a robot who mostly wants to become a girl. so that's what i focused on. and i wanted to be something very refined and almost doll-like. i've always had quite a dark and husky voice. so, i tried to find something more gentle and light. >> seth: also the voice helps, but obviously you had one of the great looks in any sci-fi movie here. there you are. fantastic. it's such a beautiful film. and it's so funny when you see this, it's obviously an intense movie. you play a very serious character. and then you showed us this wonderful photo. this is you just getting ready, i guess this is off set. [ laughter ] a little bit lighter -- a little bit lighter feel. so it's nice to know you weren't full robot 24/7. >> yeah. just that makeup took about three and a half hours. >> seth: is it three and a half hours? everything you see in the movies takes so much longer than you think it would take. >> yeah. i mean, i was so tired.
1:16 am
i remember i came in the morning because i had to pick up at like 3:30 in the morning or something. then i sat in the chair and they actually always started with my neck. and then they put this little, like, pin on the back of the chair with a little tennis ball so i could rest my head. and i'd continue to hold the rest of it and i just fell asleep and i woke up as robot. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's my dream. oh, just to wake up as a robot. that's the life. [ applause ] you also -- you were in "anna karenina." that you filmed in russia. and that seems like maybe the most intense thing you had to do. >> i mean, it's amazing, you know, when you do films and you get to travel to places where you probably would never go. we -- on this location, the hotel we were going to stay at actually we couldn't reach it because the ice was too thin for the hovercraft to go there. >> seth: oh, no. everything about that sounds terrible. >> the island where we filmed and it was like a fisher village
1:17 am
and the summer cottages there never tried to heat up. so it was like, i think 8 degrees celsius in the night. so we didn't have hot water or anything. it was quite a spectacular thing. it was one of the russian crew men because they had to go to an outhouse in that cold. >> seth: right. >> and he went out to do his thing, and, you know, maybe some friends wondered where he was. and they looked out and actually the outhouse was surrounded by like wolves. [ light laughter ] i don't know. the guy got hypothermia, i think, because they had to send him off. so, then the next day, i don't have this photo left. i took a photo of the call sheet. and they had added, like, that we had a curfew because beware of the wolves. >> seth: that's -- that's what you hear about in hollywood. that's what they tell you about hollywood. you get to work around wolves. well, thank you so much for being here. congratulations on everything. it's so lovely to meet you. give it up for alicia vikander.
