>> jimmy: are you good at wrapping? >> no, i'm actually -- i'm very, very bad, but i take it very seriously. i set up a small workshop in a jerry-rigged gym, and -- in our -- in a basement. in a dungeon -- >> jimmy: yeah. you're down there. >> and i'm down there for hours growing more and more bitter and resentful. just like my parents, actually. now, that i think back -- >> jimmy: it's a tradition. >> my parents were exhausted on christmas, they were furious constantly. now i know why. >> jimmy: weirdly -- weirdly enough you know what happened at my house? santa didn't wrap. >> well, i understand why. but, yeah, so -- i mean, honestly that's a revelation. but why -- so, i wrap and i, you know, double-faced satin and four-inch wide velvet. grosgrain, trying to get a mitered corner on a package, and then matthew, who is brilliant and clever, moseys on down in a pair of well-worn slippers, and goes to the kitchen and gets a
pot and a lid, and he puts this gift in the pot and he covers it with a lid, and it goes under the tree, and the children are like so charmed by this. they're delighted by the ingenuity, by the whimsy of it. >> jimmy: he puts a gift in a pot? >> no, he literally opens a kitchen drawer, and he finds -- it's true, like, he will find, like the most chic pot. like a pot that's like, somehow the flame marks are more interesting than, say, another pot, and he -- he puts -- honestly, the first year he did that, i was like, "that's brilliant, that's brilliant." and now as you can see, i've become bitter. >> jimmy: and now you go, "oh, really, again with the pot?" >> but it's sort of a tradition. it's now become a tradition, and it's perfectly acceptable. >> jimmy: is it more than one pot? >> oh no, there's -- yeah, we have a large assortment of pots and pans. >> jimmy: they go under the tree? >> no, seriously, yes. i'll take a photograph for you. i couldn't be more serious. >> jimmy: i love that he does this. i think that would make me laugh. >> it's smart. i mean, it really is like smart. and the only thing --

"young adult," this is like -- i mean, this is big time. you started acting -- i know you're from stand-up. >> yeah. >> jimmy: and then started acting in "king of queens"? >> well, yeah. that was like, really my first professional gig. in that, i'm amazed they didn't fire me, and i got to be there for nine years and learn how to act. because i got to work with kevin james, who's amazing, and i basically learned how to be a good actor. although the other thing about the show is, a lot of people don't know -- a lot of the
writers and producers were big stoners. and they really were. i'm never worked with a stonier crew then the "king of queens" writers and producers. so they were very, very kind of pranky, and they would -- if you watch the shows, they slip all kinds of weird things into the episodes, like kevin will say random phrases. >> jimmy: like easter eggs? >> a lot of easter eggs. yeah. so, we did a scene in an episode where the writers realized i didn't have any dialogue, so we all just said, "hey, see if you can remain completely motionless in the background of this scene." and it's a really funny, sweet scene with a birthday party going on, and they're unwrapping presents. and i am the eeriest -- i literally do not move. it is so creepy. >> jimmy: yeah. it's so weird. >> i brought a clip. >> jimmy: you brought a clip? i didn't believe it. it is totally weird. show us, the first one. just show -- >> yeah, so the scene opens, totally normal. here we go. oh, he's giving him a nice present. here we go.
now, there i am right there. now, now, here's what i've done. i've sped the scene up to show you that the entire time i do not move a muscle. look how creepy this is. still not moving. still not moving. not moving at all. still not moving. cut to the wide shot. look at this. frozen expression. not moving. there's gary, still not moving. and now look at my face. i've gone even eerier. oh, whoa. so then -- okay. so then -- okay. now, you'd think. >> jimmy: it's funny you don't even notice that. >> i know. exactly. well, so then here's what's even weirder. and i forgot i did this. you think, okay, that's it. he didn't move in the scene. but you saw leah remini goes into the kitchen. >> jimmy: yeah. >> to talk to another character. so, now watch the scene in the kitchen. here we go. she's talking, now look over her right shoulder, just a second. you'll see. boom. still not moving. still completely --

and charlize, and jason reitman. awesome, but getting to be in "blade trinity," where i'm stuck in a trailer in vancouver, and wesley snipes is freaking out, and won't leave his trailer, and the whole thing is burning to the ground is amazing! those are the stories i want. those are the stories i want. >> jimmy: those are the stories you kind of want. >> yeah. i don't want to do a movie like, okay, sarah jessica parker, we're in a movie together called "failure to launch." at the table read of that movie, matthew mcconaughey showed up in just bicycle shorts, i swear to god. and i thought his balls were gonna come out. the entire table read. [ laughter ] and that's -- i mean, i want that story. you know what i mean? >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah. >> yeah. i don't want to go, yeah everyone was professional. that's fine. no, i either want it to be awesome -- >> jimmy: something scary to happen. >> like christopher plummer is up. he's totally gonna get nominated and win best supporting actor. i don't know if you've seen "beginners." >> jimmy: no, i have not see it yet. >> see "beginners," he's awesome. then go rent this italian science fiction movie he did in like '77 called "star crash" where it's david hasselhoff, and
carolyn nroe is in a leather bikini, and he's just sitting there and like, there's some italian director yelling at him. and in his mind he's going, "i'll be it at the oscars someday. this is all --" >> jimmy: this is all an anecdote. >> "this will be a nice cocktail party conversation." >> jimmy: charlize, phenomenal. >> phenomenal -- >> jimmy: beautiful. >> -- gorgeous. although, you know, i know that she gets a lot of attention for, like when she did "monster" she gained all this weight, you know for "monster." but, you know, i gained 30 pounds for "young adult," 20 years before diablo wrote it. so, i don't know why -- >> jimmy: that's amazing. >> that is total method. i gambled. >> jimmy: that's beyond method. >> i totally gambled on that. >> jimmy: it's a great story. it's basically about someone who goes back to their hometown trying to get their love back, their high school love. >> it basically is the way a romantic comedy would look in real life, which is a stalker horror movie. it's all the fun romantic comedy
behavior, but if you saw it in real life, you'd go, we should tranquilize this person, because she's nuts. she's completely nuts. >> jimmy: and boy does she drink. >> oh my god. she -- okay, there's a scene where we meet in a bar. >> jimmy: yeah. >> where -- and i brought another clip, if you don't -- >> jimmy: yes, yes. >> but, she was -- we weren't drinking real alcohol in the scene, but she was drinking in a way like, she must drink like a pirate in real life. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah. pounding them down. >> yeah. i was startled. >> jimmy: yeah. >> it was amazing. >> jimmy: yeah. she was -- yeah, yeah. -- kind of depressed. what an interesting film. >> okay. she said this, and i totally agree with her. she plays such a horrifying character that you would absolutely want to hang out with, as long as she wasn't turning the mean on you, you would totally want to go, "hey, what do you think of that person," just to hear what she would say. like after a while, she's like the shark in "jaws," like what is she going to do to this person that approaches her. >> jimmy: yeah. you don't want to be the person she approaches, but you want to see what goes down. >> as along as you can go behind a wall.
