[ laughter ] nope. "behind it" doesn't work either. they like it -- but they don't "like it" like it. [ laughter ] there's a lot of pitfalls there. [ laughter ] a new report -- this is interesting. a new report claims that happy couples have sex three to four times a week. happy couples have sex three to four times a week. so, if you're watching at home right now, sorry to hear it.

or maybe she was just standing backwards. [ laughter and applause ] starbucks -- have you guys heard of starbucks? [ cheers ] it's taken off, starbucks. starbucks has begun selling kale smoothies. kale smoothies, which i guess means the race discussion is over. so, we're all white. we're all white then, everybody here is a white person? if we're ordering kale smoothies? [ laughter ] an ohio assisted living home -- this is true. an ohio assisted living home has released a calendar of its elderly residents posing nude. i tried to put one up in my office, but it hangs too low.
12:40 am
[ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] a new guide -- any travelers here, any frequent travelers? [ cheers ] you must travel a different way than i do, based on your enthusiasm. a new guide for airport security urges agents to look for whistling, recently shaved beards and excessive yawning. which i guess explains why i saw two tsa agents frisking each other. you know what hurt that joke? i said "friksking" instead of frisking. who knows if it would have worked? but it definitely didn't help. [ laughter ] then i went with "friksking." this is frisking, this is friksking. you know you're in trouble if they start friksking you.
12:41 am
[ laughter ] i blame you, wally. i blame our cue card guy for -- i'm pretty sure you wrote "friksking." yeah, i'm right. oh, no, it is frisking. all right, you got me. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] why do we have a camera on wally? moving on. a new study shows that gamers may learn visual cues more quickly. social cues, eh. [ laughter ] the italian senate has approved a new bill to fight corruption and scandals. and then everyone laughed and laughed. [ laughter ] "you like-a that one? april fools! we no-a gonna fight-a corruption! bring in-a the hookers!" [ applause ]
12:42 am
such a good italian accent. thank you. [ laughter ] it is really good, thank you. and finally, fashion brands vans and supreme have teamed up to create a line of clothes covered in white castle burger logos. it's the clothing that says, "i'm addicted to marijuana." [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, this is the 8g band. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: how we doing, 8g band? so good to see you guys. so good to see everybody. i want to -- first of off. first off. first of off, however you want to say it. i want to wish my wife a happy birthday. it's my wife's birthday today, yeah. [ audience aws ] [ cheers and applause ] and i want to assure you i'm also going to wish it to her when i see her tonight because she doesn't watch the show every evening. [ laughter ]
12:43 am
so, i want to make sure she catches this. we have had such a fun time these last couple weeks. you know, it's ncaa tournament. we're down to the final four. we here at "late night" developed something where we picked 64 random objects, things, and we put them in a bracket. we've had people voting online these last two weeks in the "late night" tournament of things. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: guys, it has been very exciting. i want to thank everybody for voting. we are down to our final four. let's see our first. cirrus clouds, i think. who are they facing off against? oh, they're facing off against the note b flat. [ laughter ] cirrus clouds, of course, beautiful clouds. and then just before you vote -- band, can i just hear real quick -- can you give me a b flat for the people at home voting? ♪ beautiful note. [ laughter ] sounded like an a sharp, marnie. maybe? is it -- what? >> no, it really is.
12:44 am
>> seth: you think a b -- you're telling me a b flat and an a sharp are the same thing? [ inaudible ] gotcha. well, keep your politics out of the show, all right? [ laughter ] what else? oh, this is a real good showdown. in the other category -- the other final four, we have bellevue, nebraska, versus mason jars. all right. now, here's the thing, we picked a tiny town of about 50,000 people in bellevue, nebraska. and what we didn't realize is, of course, unlike mason jars, where no one really has -- feels strongly about them, bellevue, nebraska, obviously has people who live there. they've done very well in the tournament because -- but here's the thing. this tournament was supposed to be about friendship, about joy, about love, and we're very disappointed because the city of bellevue tweeted this today. here's a photo. you can see two police officers arresting a mason jar. [ laughter ] that is just not cool, you guys. that is not what this is supposed to be about. so, look, if you -- bellevue nebraska, if you feel like
12:45 am
they're playing by the rules, go ahead and vote for them. but if you want to help those poor mason jars, you can go ahead and vote for them too. we're going to have the results -- i have no idea when. anyway. [ laughter ] could be months, could be next year. probably monday, though. so, anyway, make sure you vote. you guys, we have a great show for you tonight. ludacris is here. [ cheers and applause ] i can't wait to talk to him. also stopping by, star of the new show, "daredevil" on netflix, charlie cox. [ cheers and applause ] he's a great actor. i cannot wait to talk to him. and we'll have music from dead sara. [ cheers and applause ] very excited about that. now, it's that time of year, and in recent weeks, there has been a great deal of speculation about who's running in the 2016 presidential election. one politician who keeps getting asked her intentions is massachusetts senator elizabeth warren, which brings us to a new segment we call, "will they or won't they?" ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: now, warren has been very hard to pin down in regards
12:46 am
to her 2016 intentions. here she is being her usual evasive self on yesterday's "today show." >> now, you didn't think you'd get away with this interview without me asking you point blank, are you going to run for president? >> no. i'm not running and i'm not going to run. >> seth: vague much? [ laughter ] i'm sorry, senator, but we're going to need a little more clarification. >> are you unequivocally and categorically saying, "i'm not running for president in 2016?" >> i'm not running. i'm not running. >> seth: which is it? [ laughter ] get a straight answer out of her, savannah. >> possibly i'm beating a dead horse here, but did you ever even consider entertaining the possibility of running for president? >> no. >> seth: i guess we'll never know. and by the way, later on the "today" show, hoda and kathy lee literally beat a dead horse. but before you judge, it was part of the "dead horse" challenge to raise money for pediatric cramps. [ laughter ]
12:47 am
but that firm "no" from warren is hardly in line with answers she's given in previous interviews. take a look. >> so, there's no way you're going to run in 2016? >> i'm not running for president. you can ask it lots of different ways. >> seth: okay, we will. [ laughter ] >> are you going to run for president? >> i'm not running for president. >> there's nothing that could change your mind? >> david, like i said, i'm not running for president. >> if hillary didn't run, you might give it a shot? >> i am not running for president. >> i just want to ask one question because people raised this about you. they say you constantly say you're not running for president. does that mean you will not run for president in 2016? [ laughter ] >> seth: ooh, good question, charlie. "you constantly say you're not running for president. does that mean you will not run for president in 2016?" >> i'm not running for president. >> seth: is elizabeth warren from belgium? because she sure loves to waffle. [ laughter ] [ applause ]
12:48 am
in all seriousness, at this point, elizabeth warren might have to be the first candidate to make a not-campaign poster. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] with that said, we can't entirely blame the media for not taking "no" for an answer as even democratic groups like continue to urge warren to run. hey,, take a hint. your name is "move on." [ laughter ] if you ask a girl to prom this many times without a "yes," they would ask you to transfer schools. look, i get the enthusiasm to try to get a new name in there. if this ends up clinton versus bush, it would look less like an election and more like a historical reenactment. but we can't be mad at her, she's still working for us. she's a senator. she's not saying "no" because she wants to take a year off and backpack around europe. so, while i appreciate the media's need to incessantly ask these questions, we have to remember that just because someone is a politician, doesn't mean we can't take them at their word. case in point, the 2006 barack obama interview.
12:49 am
>> so, you will not run forpresident or vice president in 2008? >> i will not. [ laughter ] >> seth: all right, we have to keep asking them. you have to ask him all the time. we'll be right back with more "late night."

[ laughter ] next one, "can i kick a little ass this movie?" "no, you can't kick ass." so, this -- finally, "fast 7", i said i'm not taking this anymore. [ laughter ]
12:55 am
i went actually to vin diesel first and foremost, and i was like, "look, man, the director keeps saying i can't kick any ass in this movie." [ laughter ] i'm like, i've been practicing this martial arts with -- shout out to my man, diallo frazier -- it's a martial arts called 52 blocks. so, it looks totally different, so i'm extremely conscious that i'm going to do something that looks totally like nothing you've seen. >> seth: so not just kicking ass, but kicking ass in a new and unique way. >> in a very unique way. thank you very much. so, he tells me to put it kind of on a demo reel, right? so, basically, i -- [ light laughter ] exactly. this is definitely a demo, so you know, we film it and we're doing all these different things and i kind of put a 30 second clip together of myself fighting. >> seth: did you put music to it? did you -- >> i put my music to it. what other music am i going to put to it? [ laughter ] >> seth: gotcha. right, exactly. [ cheers and applause ] >> so, i do this and it's like, this just goes to show that when you show somebody something, it's way different than you trying to sell them on something, right? >> seth: yes. >> so, i go and i show it to vin diesel. i show it to the producer. i show it to the director. and all of them are like, "you know what?
12:56 am
you can kick a little ass in this movie." let's kick some ass. [ cheers ] >> seth: you definitely have to see martial arts to appreciate it. that's why there's very few great novels about martial arts. >> absolutely. and i had to fight for my fight scene in "fast 7." >> seth: there you go. >> if there's any reason you need to go see "fast 7," it's because of that reason right there. i fought for it.

[ laughter and applause ]
12:57 am
>> i'm humble because i drove all of those cars, and i came back wanting to drive this one. >> seth: there you go. there you go. >> so, there you have it. and you know, of course, i had to put a new engine in it. it has over 283,000 miles on this car. >> seth: that's great. >> so, i put it on my album cover because, you know, like you said, this is the humble ludacris. >> seth: yes. >> and this is the flexing ludacris. [ laughter ] yeah, so, that's basically what's going on. >> seth: that's kind of -- this is the cris and that's the luda. [ laughter ] >> you can say it like that, too. definitely. >> seth: you're from atlanta, and you got honored recently by the georgia house of representatives. >> i did, man. >> seth: that must have been pretty nice. >> it was great because i've been doing a lot of, you know, philanthropy, a lot of great work and just giving back to the community and underprivileged kids for so long. and i don't necessarily do it to have media there and you know. but it feels great to be honored by the state of georgia finally. it's been over 10 years. we've donated over $2 million to programs that help children, so it was a beautiful thing. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: and we have a clip here. you got up to speak and you couldn't help yourself.

[ laughter ] i was about to start lowering taxes and everything at that very moment. >> seth: and then you got photo-bombed here. tell us who you ended up with there. >> he definitely photo-bombed me, man. i was on my way out. there's jeb bush. you know what i mean? >> seth: and he just grabbed a picture with you. >> he did, man. he did. i think it was a setup. i really do think it was a setup. [ laughter ] >> seth: well, i think when a lot of us saw this, we got excited because we thought he'd already picked his running mate. [ laughter ] i mean, for us, that would have been -- that would have been pretty outstanding. >> yeah, man, it definitely would have. but that's not happening right now. >> seth: you were asked. you were actually asked afterwards who your favorite bush was, and you had a pretty good answer. >> i mean, i don't -- it just came to me like a flash. they said who was my favorite bush. i said the ones outside are my favorite bushes. [ laughter ] and that's no diss to anybody. those are my favorite bushes.

[ laughter ] >> so my name's chris. so then, it only took me about six months or so to say that i could only make so many songs rapping about christmas. [ laughter ] and i had to switch it up. >> seth: i'm impressed you made it six months. >> six months. yeah, it was pretty good. i'm pretty creative. i had a lot. >> seth: and then, when you became a dj, did you have a dj name? >> yeah, i was interning under a woman named felicia love and ryan cameron. but the love part, i made my name, chris lover lovah. >> seth: gotcha. chris lover lovah. and so, you were doing -- when you first started doing it, i guess everybody when they start dj-ing, you were doing the graveyard shift? >> yep. >> seth: so, that's what -- two a.m. to six? >> two a.m. to six a.m.
1:00 am
>> seth: wow. >> there are some creepy people calling up around that time, man. >> seth: i imagine. [ laughter ] >> definitely some freaky people. as a matter of fact, one of my homeboys also did the graveyard shift every now and then. and he has a pretty crazy story that i could tell you right now where you hear these people calling up. and, of course, we're young, so we don't really know what the hell is going on. we're very curious at this young age, so you know, you start getting in a position of power. and you're at this radio station and you get some calls, and you get a caller with an extremely sexy voice, like, "i'm in the tub. i want you to come over when you get off of the air, and i will be in the tub. i'll leave the door unlocked. so, when you get here, just come on and come into the bathroom and just come jump in the tub with me." and, uh -- as soon as he got to the house after he got off his shift -- [ laughter ] he got in the house. the door was unlocked. went into the bathroom and the water was overflowing.

quite concerned about is like what do you do with your eyes when you're not wearing the mask. >> seth: sure. >> and yeah, we went out on the street, and i -- you know, daredevil, when he's matt murdock, when he's a lawyer, he has to keep up the pretense that he functions as a regular blind person. so, i'm practicing my cane technique. >> seth: did you actually go out and -- >> yeah, yeah, yeah, we had a blindfold on. that must have been really freaky for people, actually. now that i think about it. that guy's not blind, but he has a cane. why is he covering his eyes? that's weird. >> seth: they probably gave you a wider birth than they would give a normal blind person. well, this guy obviously has some stuff going on. >> yeah, the thing about joe, which amazed me, this is -- you always think that people will move out of the way if they see a blind -- or they hear the cane being tapped on the street. the thing about joe is he goes at such a lick down the street that he's bumping into people who are walking in the same direction as him. like, they're just walking in front of him and he's coming up behind them and hitting them.
1:11 am
you know what i mean? and they're like, oh, i'm sorry. >> seth: very impressive. also impressive, obviously, in this show, you play an american. matt murdock is american. i'm very good with accents, so i can tell you're not from america. >> okay. [ laughter ] >> seth: you had to do this a lot. you have an american accent here, and then in "boardwalk empire," which you are just wonderful in -- >> thank you. >> seth: you have such a good show. you were great. [ cheers and applause ] you had a northern irish accent. how do you go about doing a northern irish accent? >> well, it's a tricky one. and again, that was another audition situation. because in the initial audition, they said dublin. then, when i -- the day before the audition, i got news sides and it said belfast. and i had a heart attack. because for me, for us, that's a completely different accent. >> seth: whereas the most of us, we'd think -- >> well, when i went in there -- [ laughter ] >> seth: you got purple clovers, right? >> when i got into the screen test and i said -- you know, they were all -- all the bigwigs are there. and i said, you know, is that,
1:12 am
after the first take, i said is that more accent-wise and they kind of went -- yeah, no. >> seth: they didn't know. >> whatever you did before is great. to me, it was completely different. >> seth: how do you, when you heard -- when you had dublin and then you heard belfast, like, how did you -- were you sort of adept enough at the differences in an irish accent? >> i play football with jamie dornan. >> seth: okay, sure. >> jamie dornan is from belfast. >> seth: so, "fifty shades of grey" jamie dornan. >> yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: we can work with that. >> and you know, we play football. and it's a bunch of actors who only turn up when they're unemployed. >> seth: got it. >> so, when someone doesn't turn up, you're like, where's he? [ laughter ] >> seth: he's doing very well for himself. >> yeah, and so jamie turned up one day and i was there. and i said i had this screen test for it, and he kind of went -- i'll record my lines for you. >> seth: so, he recorded the lines? >> he recorded the lines for my screen test, yes. >> seth: so, you were list thing to jamie dornan, which i'm sure women all over this nation are
1:13 am
doing now. >> yeah, exactly. i still listen to it occasionally. >> seth: why not? why not? [ cheers and applause ] how do you -- when you -- do you have to do that when you're doing an accent? do you have to stay sharp on set? >> i find accents really difficult. i have to work really, really hard. one of my best friends, ned gamble who's my flatmate in london, he can do accents like anything. so, it was actually helpful living with him for a while. i have to work really, really hard. i have to work with people. one of the things i found quite helpful bizarrely is i find, i go to the area. i go find a podcast from a church near the area where i'm trying to get the accent. because priests, when they're doing their sermons, they obviously have to sound conversational, normal speaking. but they also need to be understood. one of the problems doing northern irish was on my first day on set, i think i went too far with it. people were like, yeah, but it needs to be english. [ laughter ] >> seth: so, do you record -- you're just on set listening to podcasts? >> yeah, so i get in the trailer in the morning.
1:14 am
i put the thing in my ear and i got to know it so well, so i repeat the phrases and it's about god. >> seth: sure, yeah. most of them are, yeah. >> that was quite amusing. i was aware at some point after like the first four or five episodes that there was a couple people who'd come up to me and just kind of talk to me about the sermon on the mound or they mention, you know, the gospel according to matthew or something. and i was like, oh, yeah, that's cool. [ laughter ] and then i realized they thought i was serious. >> seth: right. you're walking around doing sermons. >> yeah, just walking around and saying, "and jesus said to the disciples --" [ laughter ] >> seth: well, now they're going to think a totally different thing if you're doing jamie dornan. prepare for the shift. thank you so much. i'm so excited for the rest of the show. >> thanks for having me. >> seth: charlie cox, everyone.
