tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC July 27, 2016 12:37am-1:38am PDT
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- alicia vikander, host of "watch what happens live", andy cohen, comedian maria bamford, featuring the 8g band with matt cameron. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. >> seth: good evening. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] good to hear. very, very good to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. democrats held a roll call vote today to formally elect hillary clinton as their party's nominee. delegates had the option of
voting either "no" or, "ugh, fine." [ laughter ] bernie sanders supporters were so angry last night that they booed each mention of hillary clinton's name and even booed the pastor leading the pre-convention prayer. [ light laughter ] of course, this was philadelphia. booing is just how people exhale. [ laughter ] boooo! boooo! [ laughter ] michelle obama spoke at the democratic convention last night and warned voters about donald trump saying, "the issues the president faces cannot be boiled down to 140 characters." but i don't know, maybe under president trump they can. [ light laughter ] for all of us. [ applause ] that's for all of us. we're all his followers now. during michelle obama's speech last night she told the crowd that this election and every
election is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of their lives. said trump, "i'm the best at shaping children. no, no, not those two! [ laughter ] no, that's it. that's the good one. that's the one i like. [ laughter and applause ] yeah." michelle obama spoke yesterday at the democratic national convention and by all accounts it was an impressive speech. responses spanned from enthusiastic to emotional. and this is really great, thanks to a cnn audience camera, we were able to see the full range of emotions and reactions for people watching michelle obama. check it out. >> and because of hillary clinton, my daughters and all our sons and daughters, now take for granted that a woman can be president of the united states. [ cheers ] [ laughter ] >> yes, yes, yes! >> seth: and this -- i don't
even know how they did this, this is cool. they even caught some republicans' reactions to watching the same speech. here we go. >> don't let anyone ever tell you that this country isn't great. that somehow we need to make it great again. [ screams ] because this right now is the greatest country on earth. >> seth: and of course here was donald trump's reaction. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: there you have it. it was a great speech. [ applause ] now during the democratic convention last night, donald trump tweeted, "sad to watch bernie sanders abandon his revolution." i guess trump's advisors didn't have the heart to tell him he was watching paul simon. [ light laughter ] bernie sanders spoke at the new york delegation breakfast this morning, where for once he enjoyed a good schmear campaign. [ laughter ] yeah. yeah. that's a dumb joke. [ light laughter ] former vice president al gore,
yesterday, endorsed hillary clinton. he then returned to the ocean to rejoin his pod. [ laughter ] a british airways flight had to make an emergency landing recently after the cabin strongly smelled like marijuana. even worse, the pilot was flying at like five miles per hour. [ laughter ] we're gonna be in chicago in about 45 hours. [ light laughter ] justin bieber was reportedly seen in a los angeles nightclub arm wrestling 7- foot nba star joel embiid. he was also seen leaving the nightclub. [ laughter ] new york was hit with a large thunderstorm last night, which caused enough rain to create temporary waterfalls in some subway stations. it's the closest new yorkers have ever come to seeing nature. [ laughter ] i saw the most beautiful waterfall last night. [ laughter ] full of rats. [ laughter ]
analysts have found that people that live in the western u.s. are the most likely to use marijuana. said people in the western u.s., "yeah, but who's most likely to use marijuana?" [ laughter ] finally, mick jagger turns 73 today. just think, 73 years ago today, mick jagger's girlfriend's parents' parents were born. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight! [ cheers and applause ] from the new film "jason bourne", alicia vikander is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] one of our favorit, from bravo's "watch what happens live", the wonderful andy cohen is back. [ cheers and applause ] and she is the star and creator of a fantastic show that's on netflix right now, called "lady dynamite." maria bamford is here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] she is a very funny person. i'm so happy she's here. as we mentioned, yesterday was the first day of the democratic
national convention. and while there were messages of unity from michelle obama, elizabeth warren, and bernie sanders, the evening was marred, not by all bernie's supporters, but by a small percentage, members of the hardcore "bernie or bust" movement, who chanted and booed through most of the evening. which brings me to a new segment called, "hey!" ♪ [ applause ] >> seth: hey! what's going on? i tuned in last night and there was more white booing than the "casper" movie. [ light laughter ] look, i know you're bernie or bust, but the results are in, bust won. we don't have time for this. donald trump is ahead in the polls. the house is on fire. stop crying because we're not putting it out with your hose. [ light laughter ] hey! [ snapping ] pay attention. [ light laughter ] we are on the cusp of electing a racist demagogue, and that never ends well. i don't know which class you ditched to go to those bernie rallies, but i have a feeling it was history. [ laughter ]
you're like a cavaliers fan who goes to the games and boos when lebron dunks with the wrong hand. [ light laughter ] oh, wait, that would never happen, because that is ridiculous! [ light laughter ] but i know what you're going to say. "i don't know anyone who's planning to vote for trump." oh, you don't? did you ask everybody in your yoga class? [ light laughter ] did you check with the entire drum circle? because guess what? you know how you have that crazy uncle you only see at thanksgiving? well this country is about 48% crazy uncles. [ laughter ] and it's about to be thanksgiving all day, every day. [ laughter ] and please don't say, "pass the gravy." because if trump is elected, no one gets gravy. [ laughter ] trump gets all of the gravy! [ laughter ] also, because of you, bernie is going to have to campaign for hillary every day until election day. and he shouldn't have to do that. one, because he hates her. [ light laughter ] it's just unlike you, he's adult enough to pretend he doesn't. [ light laughter ]
and two, bernie should be on a well-earned vacation. just sitting on a stoop, drinking cream soda, and yelling at people to put their garbage in the trash can. [ laughter ] and another thing, if you're going to put tape over your mouth to symbolize that you are being silenced, don't agree to do an interview. >> is there anything hillary clinton could say or do to win you over? >> nothing. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> seth: one or the other! tape or talking! you can't do both! look. look. i get disappointment. we've all experienced disappointment. i couldn't get rihanna to go out with me, but i don't stand in the kitchen and boo my wife. [ laughter ] at least not while she's telling me how she plans to make my life better. bernie did a great job. you did a great job. your passion changed the democratic party and that is no small thing. you should be proud of yourselves for his campaign. but also, you have to be quiet now!
now is the time to be quiet! this has been "hey!" ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with alicia vikander!

[ cheers and applause ] seth: our first guest is an academy award winning actress who you know from films like "the danish girl" and "ex machina." starting friday you can see her in "jason bourne." let's take a look. ♪ >> bourne, my name is heather lee. i'm not in charge here. i wasn't here when you went missing. i can see you're going through the old treadstone phones. retracing your history. i know you're looking for something. let me help you find it. >> seth: please welcome back to the show alicia vikander. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: welcome back. >> thank you. >> seth: so happy to see you. i'm so excited there's another bourne movie. >> oh, me too. >> seth: i'm so excited it's matt damon. i'm so excited it's paul greengrass.
>> greengrass. >> seth: but you were a huge fan of these films. >> i was. i actually -- when i heard that paul greengrass and matt damon were teaming back together to make a new one, i was just so excited and i was beyond -- when i knew i was going to be part of it. so -- >> seth: did you -- was there a moment where you weren't officially part of it when you met them where you had to play it cool? >> well, you know, i was going to have this meeting with the director. and normally you have a little chit chat. you talk about the film. you say goodbye. and the agents kind of call each other and make up. and i kind of was just stepped in and i was like, "i've seen your films so many times. i used to live with my girlfriends in london and we had the trilogy in a box. we used to watched it on sundays." so, i was kind of just geeking out the first time i met him. >> seth: yeah. also, you made living in london sound pretty lame. like -- [ laughter ] we had an apartment full of -- >> well, it's tough. you know? >> seth: yeah. we were -- it was -- we were four girlfriends living in two small rooms. we did have rats in the kitchen. >> seth: oh, wow. >> so we didn't use that. >> seth: gotcha. >> first day we closed that door and never opened it again. and -- >> seth: so you -- i like that
you address your problems. >> yeah. >> seth: there are rats in the kitchen. what's the solution? call an exterminator? no. >> no, we're poor. >> seth: close the door, never go in there. [ light laughter ] now this is incredible, cause you mentioned you lived with these girls in london. and two of them are the band icona pop. >> yes. >> seth: so, were they sort of young up-and-coming musicians at the same time you were a doing acting? >> yeah. i think i went to a show of theirs at koko in london. it was like me and seven other people in the audience. but i was cheering. i was -- you know. >> seth: there you go. >> yeah, they were great. >> seth: i think you're probably one of the keys to their success. the fact that you were there that night. >> yeah. >> seth: so this movie, i know there's an insane sort of car chase in vegas. >> yeah. >> seth: that sort of is a very important part of the film. yet you are not in the car chase. >> unfortunately not. >> seth: were you heartbroken that you -- >> well, you know, i read in the script about this sequence. and i thought how, you know, it's set on the strip. and it's cars flying everywhere. and i was like, there's no way they're going to do this. and i guess nowadays they kind
of just assume that everything is cgi. >> seth: yeah. >> and green screen. but they -- we arrived there and they said, "no. we're gonna just" -- you know. they said, "yes, we're going to close it down every night for two weeks between midnight and 3 o'clock." >> seth: wow. >> in the night. >> seth: which is still a very busy time in las vegas. >> yeah! >> seth: in other places -- >> i mean it's 24/7. >> seth: midnight to three you can shut and that's fine. >> exactly. >> seth: yeah. >> that's why it was very difficult to end work in the evening and you have to go through the casino each night. that was dangerous. anyway, but yes. i went to the top roof of one of the levels of the hotel and i kind of got the virtual reality experience. >> seth: oh, so you just watched every night as they did this bourne thing? >> i mean it was insane. they told me that it is 170 cars that they blew up. >> seth: wow. >> they could have given me one at least. >> seth: yeah, no kidding. like a parting gift at least. you know, blow up 169 cars. >> yeah. >> seth: and then one for you. >> yeah. but it was really amazing seeing vehicles, like, fly in the air. >> seth: so two weeks in vegas. i have spent some time in vegas. i would say maximum you want to be there is 72 hours. >> yeah.
[ light laughter ] >> seth: and the last 24 hours are -- >> i did about 38. >> seth: 38. >> when i was there. >> seth: yeah. so you hit the wall? was your time in vegas sorta -- >> yeah, that was kind of it. when i went the first time i did the, you know, traditional in and out and good night. >> seth: yeah, like, go to a show. >> yeah. >> seth: like, that sort of stuff. >> and then when they told me we were going to go there, i just thought, i'm going to die. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] no, two weeks in vegas sounds like where people -- some people go there to die. >> no, five, six weeks. >> seth: six weeks in vegas. >> yes! >> seth: oh, okay. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> seth: that's even worse. that's not good. >> no, no, no. >> seth: yeah. >> no. i was in that hotel for, like, one and a half months. >> seth: well that's a weird thing about a vegas hotel because they -- when i've been there, like, you just have no sense of the passage of time. >> no, you don't. >> seth: yeah. >> and so, yeah, like i said, it was a dangerous thing coming down from work. >> seth: that's good. i'm so happy -- >> but it was cool. i mean, you woke, when normally it's tough getting to work at 5:00 a.m. in the morning. but you just went down to the casino, and like -- [ snap ] they have, you know, the air comes on. >> seth: yeah. >> and the oxygen's there and it was just cool. >> seth: no it is. you do not need coffee in vegas. you're pretty much, everything is vegas is coffee. you're just up.
[ light laughter ] this other film that you have coming up, tell us about this. >> yes. "the light between oceans." >> seth: okay. >> coming out the 2nd of september, i think. >> seth: this is very exciting. and this seems very unique. that you go to the film and is it true that on the first day the director basically put you on camera without even letting you rehearse the scene? >> yes. so, our director on that film, derek cianfrance, he's kind of known for giving experiences and memories to his actors. that was all they told me. >> seth: good experiences? good memories? >> well, you would hope. >> seth: yeah. >> but, yeah, i mean, it started pretty weird then. because i wasn't allowed to get out on set on the first day of the shoot. i wasn't involved in that scene. he was like, "no, no. you" -- and we were almost one and a half hour away from set, so i was by myself in this business hotel when the entire crew went. and then i had a pickup at 2:00 a.m. in the morning. >> seth: okay. >> i got in the car, couldn't see anything. no one would tell me anything. everyone was just like very mysterious. they're like, get in the car. i was like -- >> seth: so you maybe were kidnapped. >> yeah.
>> seth: yeah. >> you know, it's, you know, a girl in new zealand in this little town. but i got into that car in the middle of the night. and i drove out and then they talked about blindfolding me, but they just, you know, closed my eyes and led me in complete darkness somewhere. and then i opened my eyes -- >> seth: this sounds like they took you to a haunted house. >> in then i -- in a woodshed. >> seth: so it was a haunted house. >> yeah. >> seth: you were in a woodshed. >> i was in a woodshed. >> seth: does the movie take place in a woodshed or is this just a place they were keeping you? [ laughter ] >> the woodshed actually exists in the film. so you will be able to see it. >> seth: okay. so it was a practical woodshed. >> yeah. but they put on my makeup and costume in there. and then they -- the first a.d. came in and said, "you're on in seven minutes." and i was like, "but where's the direction? what am i doing?" and he was like, "well, no, you open this door." and i knew it was this one scene where my character isabel kind of explores her new home. she's gonna live on an island with her husband and be lighthouse keepers. so it's the first day when she arrives and he just said, "yeah, open the door. you will see the director and
the camera guys somewhere and you'll just have to go towards them." so i opened up and i saw them kind of there, trying to not look in camera. and walked up this hill. and then when i got up to the top to the lighthouse, they had timed it so the sun came up from the sea and i looked up to the most extraordinary nature i've ever seen in my entire life. this was the south island in new zealand. >> seth: uh-huh. >> and i just step -- you can actually when -- if you go and -- please, see the film. you will see my reaction which is really not isabel. it's just me not acting very well. because it's just alicia getting really -- sight of this morning. no. this view. >> seth: see, i'm a terrible actor but i could do that. >> yeah. >> seth: i could just like walk up and like react to a sunset, i feel like. >> yeah. anyone can do it. >> seth: see i've got to be in that guy's next movie.
