and featuring the legendary roots crew. >> questlove: 282! >> steve: and now, here he is, jimmy fallon! ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: hey! oh! that's what i'm talking about! oh, it's going to be a fun one tonight. welcome to "the tonight show," ladies and gentlemen. thank you for being here. i'm your host, jimmy fallon. and i'm excited to announce our entire audience is made up of people who broke out of a a prison in upstate new york.
[ cheers and applause ] this is a crazy story. i'm sure most of you know. two prisoners recently escaped from a maximum security prison in upstate new york and police have been looking everywhere for them. they still haven't found them. so, today officials released sketches of what the two men might look like after ten days of being on the run. [ light laughter ] this is real. take a look. there it is. they might look like that after living in the woods, or something. i don't know what they're thinking. >> steve: shaved. >> jimmy: well groomed. yeah, they brought a groomer with them. whatever they brought. >> steve: got a flowbee. >> jimmy: but they're saying who knows what lengths the two are going to go to in order to disguise themselves. some even speculate plastic surgery could be involved. so take a look at the projection of what they might look like after a year on the run. [ laughter ] now that's definitely something wrong there. they definitely had some work done. what's even crazier is the
sketch that shows what they look like after two years on the run. look. [ laughter ] i mean, that's just insane. [ cheers and applause ] i think i know what street they're hiding on. >> steve: really? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: no one knows how to get there. >> steve: oh, that's the worst. that's the worst. >> jimmy: yesterday, on cnn, one of their analysts was talking about the woman who helped these prisoners escape. he tried to make a joke about the woman's appearance. at least i think it was a joke. check this out. >> i'm just looking at the way she is dressed. she has that black vest -- is that a bulletproof vest? i don't know what that is. i'm just guessing. >> it might be -- it might be a vest she wears for one of those life-saving vests, too. in case somebody throws her in the water and she's drowning. but, yeah, it looks like it is a life jacket. >> what? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: what? >> steve: what? >> jimmy: someone's drowning, all right. it's not her. [ laughter ] yeah. someone needs to throw him a a joke. [ light laughter ] what?
let's get to some happier news. i want to say congratulations to the golden state warriors, who beat the cleveland cavaliers -- [ cheers and applause ] ♪ to win the nba championship. this is a little awkward, if you watched it last night. mark jackson, who was fired as the warriors coach last season, is actually one of the broadcasters who called their big win for abc. which is basically the sports equivalent of the bride's ex giving a wedding toast. [ light laughter ] he's like, "i'm so happy for sheila and chad. [ laughter ] chad's such a great guy, isn't he? probably writes poems for her. don't you, chad?" [ light laughter ] tell them to shut the mic off. and after losing to the warriors, lebron james talked about his team, saying, quote, "we ran out of talent." and cavaliers are like, "oh, now it is 'we'? [ laughter and applause ] oh, that's interesting. no, no, please, take all the
credit for this one. take credit for this. now it's 'we,' right? interesting." of course, the other big story is that donald trump announced -- [ cheers ] that he's running for president. and during his speech he told the crowd that if elected he would be the greatest jobs president that god ever created. then god was like, "hey, don't drag me into this publicity stunt. that's your thing." [ laughter and applause ] "celebrity apprentice" comes on. yeah, i know what you do. and did you see -- after the interview, after the announcement, he did an interview and he told abc news that if he had oprah as his running mate, he could easily win. [ light laughter ] although you know who would definitely win? oprah without donald trump. [ cheers and applause ] you get a tax break! you get a tax break! you get a tax break! you get a tax break! look under your seat, tax breaks! [ applause ]
and this is not good, here. i read that the spanish version of hillary clinton's website apparently contains numerous mistakes and grammatical errors. when she heard about this, hillary was like, "aye, doritos mio." [ laughter ] that's right, people have noticed that hillary's spanish website contains many mistakes and grammatical errors. well, i thought i could clear the air and explain the situation to our audience in spanish. [ speaking spanish ]
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> tariq: doritos. >> jimmy: and jeb bush announced that he's also running for president this week. he was on our show last night, very nice guy. gave a great speech when he made his announcement in miami. talked about a lot of issues. he even took on hillary clinton. here he is taking about the progressive agenda and religious beliefs. >> those beliefs, quote, "have to be changed." that's what she said. [ boos ] that's what she said. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i mean, i want to make a joke about this, but he was just here last night. i can't be too hard on bush. >> that's what she said. ♪ [ laughter ]
>> jimmy: actually, his speech was pretty short. i would have thought it would have been longer. >> that's what she said. ♪ [ applause ] >> steve: you know what, i hear he's polling well. ♪ >> that's what she said. [ laughter ] >> steve: and i hear that he's got the biggest staff in politics. >> jimmy: is that right? >> that's what she said. ♪ >> steve: and i can't wait for his inaugural ball. >> that's what she said. ♪ [ laughter ] >> steve: come on. >> jimmy: i know. you have to do it. you have to. >> steve: i don't want to. >> jimmy: no, i didn't do it. you did it. i didn't do it. >> steve: i don't want to do it. >> jimmy: of course, everybody is still talking about the >> jimmy: of course, everyone's still talking about the rachel dolezal story and what identity really means. yesterday on fox news one of the anchors made a pretty good point.
listen to this. >> if i self identify as a cat, a feline, do i have to pay income taxes? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: of course you have to work and pay taxes. why do you think garfield hates mondays? i mean that's why. [ cheers and applause ] then a producer from fox news lured her off camera with a a laser pointer. [ laughter ] some big entertainment news. it's rumored that "homeland" star, damien lewis, may become the next james bond. here he is. there's damien. that's a a picture of damien, yeah. the red headed james bond. [ light laughter ] that explains the next two bond movies, "sun burns are forever," and "the stepfather who didn't like me."

stuff, but this -- you've definitely not seen anything like this -- >> steve: it's something new. >> jimmy: before. it's something new. it's something new for your brain. and you can't get it out of your brain once you saw it. [ light laughter ] >> steve: like a brain worm. >> jimmy: that happened. that happened. yeah, yeah, yeah. >> steve: truth bomb. >> jimmy: guys, you know, whenever i get some down time at the show, i like to go on instagram and scroll through the photos. and one thing i noticed is that a lot of times two people will write the exact same caption, but the pictures they post will be completely different. >> steve: really? >> jimmy: yeah. i'll show you what i mean in this next segment called "picture this." here we go. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: let's take a look at this first example. it's from hillary clinton and donald trump. they both wrote "this person's courageous and heroic story inspired me to run for president." let's see the pictures they posted. hillary posted a picture of fdr. donald trump posted a picture of donald trump.
[ laughter and applause ] you see what i am saying? >> steve: same captions, two different -- >> jimmy: let's keep going. here's one from haagen dazs and baskin robbins. they both wrote "it's vanilla on the inside, chocolate on the outside." [ light laughter ] haagen dazs posted a picture of an ice cream bar. baskin robbins posted a picture of rachel dolezal. [ laughter and applause ] >> steve: rachel dolezal. >> jimmy: ice cream. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: next one is from the bronx zoo and abc. they both wrote "if they focus hard, they can do basic math and speak a few words, but they'll never have human intelligence." the bronx zoo posted a picture of a group of chimps. abc posted a picture of the 15 remaining guys on "the bachelorette."

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: you seem so proper to everyone. but you're a very fun human being. you're very -- >> i like to laugh. [ laughter ] make me. >> jimmy: make me, monkey! dance. what's the most childish thing you've done on set? do you have any pranks to harry potter, himself? >> well, i mean, i have a a sophisticated sense of humor, and i knew that michael gambon had played dumble-door. dumbledore. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i am going to do that next time he is on. dumble-door. dumble-door. that's fantastic. [ talking over each other ] we'll figure it out. i think it is funny.
>> so sophisticated. >> jimmy: yeah. >> i knew that michael gandon was the owner and user of a a remote controlled fart machine. >> jimmy: you are very sophisticated, aren't you? yes. >> he was able -- in english theaters we're up in what's the mezzanine, we have these little things called boxes where six people sit. so, michael placed by habit one of his fart machines in this box of six unsuspecting theater going ticket holders. [ light laughter ] and then on stage in quite a a serious play, he had a lot of young kids in this play. and to amuse them, he would just operate it while speaking. the thing about michael is he does it without laughing. >> jimmy: see, that's where we differ. [ laughter ] >> there were six members of the serious london theater going public, sitting in that box, michael's down on stage, acting away, and then suddenly
they're leaning forward, and -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that is fantastic. >> the people in the box. actors falling about. so, fast forward to third harry potter, and there was a a scene which had 200 kids in sleeping bags. with great grown up wit, i said we should put the fart machine in daniel radcliffe's sleeping bag. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: you said this sophisticated. >> and we did. so i had to come running in. and, so, the scene on this extra take started me running in, and saying, "so, headmaster, what about the children?" and michael said, "no, for tonight this is the scene." i then went, "for tonight, let them -- sleep. for in sleep they can fly with the swiftest swallow." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: he laughed.
>> all over the floor, there are kids are sitting up out of their sleeping bags and they're all going -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: this film "a little chaos," here. this, which you've directed as well, yes? >> yes. >> jimmy: and star in. are you hard to direct as a a director if you're the actor? [ light laughter ] i ask the deep questions here, yeah. >> have i remembered my lines is a good start. >> jimmy: yeah, there's a lot. no, i'm not in it that much. >> jimmy: why did you choose to do this type of film? it's a beautiful film, and set in a different period of time. >> it's a very hard film to talk about on a show like this. because you think, i'm going to start talking and people are -- >> jimmy: no, no, no, no. >> i'll try and say it quickly. it's set in the court of louie xiv, 17th century france, kate winslet, absolutely brilliant in the film. >> jimmy: i mean, kate winslet could do anything. we love kate winslet. [ cheers and applause ] you could do anything.
