tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC November 29, 2017 11:35pm-12:37am EST
>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight -- james franco. from "the florida project," brooklynn prince. mike tyson. and music from bts. and now, moving right along, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: hello, welcome. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thanks for coming. that's very nice. i appreciate it. on what was yet another crazy day here in the united states of america. more famous and powerful men accused today of inappropriate
behavior, including this was a shocker, santa claus. [ laughter ] apparently one of the children on his routes saw him kissing mommy and i guess it's over. as is matt lauer. matt lauer was let go from the "today" show this morning because of unspecified allegations of sexual harassment. this morning my wife looked on her phone and said, oh my god, matt lauer, which of course i assumed he was dead. i guess this is better, i don't know. poor savannah guthrie had to break the news moments after she found out about it. of course president trump weighed in on this as presidents compan do. matt lauer was just fired from nbc for inappropriate behavior in the workplace. when will the top executives be fired for putting out so much fake news? check out andy lax pass. if anyone knows about inappropriate behavior at the workplace at nbc, it's donald j. trump. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
is he aware that he's him? i don't think he is. [ laughter ] i think he sees donald trump on tv and goes, i like that guy. [ laughter ] as far as matt lauer goes, what happens now? does he have to do an emotional sitdown interview with himself? [ laughter ] another question is, if matt hour is off the "today" show for his behavior, what happens to kathie lee gifford? i don't know if you watch the show but will they have to cancel spanky tuesday? do you know about spanky tuesday? let me catch you up. >> have a great booze day tuesday. >> a start of electronics show, nobody likee but nobody likee. red bulls, we're red bulls. tomorrow we have a big show. who's here? funny man colin quinn. leave me alone! >> jimmy: wow. hoda clearly told her to stop more than one time and she
didn't. [ laughter ] spanky tuesday might be in jeopardy. and on top of all this, 75-year-old garrison keillor, the guy from "a prairie home companion," was fired today from minnesota public radio. apparently he was asking women to upon ankle his tote bag. you don't play? okay. [ laughter ] can you imagine being fired from minnesota public radio? it's like having your library card revoked. laugh live it's all very confusing because you look at a guy like garrison keillor and you think, this is a man who could have any woman he wants rfsh. [ laughter ] quite a day r. garrison keillor, matt lauer, i'm hearing, don't quote me on this, inside information, there's talk young sheldon might be next. [ audience groaning ] meanwhile north korea launched another missile yesterday. that apparently now they can reach every part of the mainland of the united states. which is scary, of course. and i know it sounds terrible, but speaking for those of us who live here on the west coast, there's something comforting about the fact that it's not
just us who have to worry about this anymore. [ laughter ] now we're all in it together. congratulations. [ cheers and applause ] fortunately, the good news, if there is any, is both of our leaders, ours and north korea's, are reasonable men -- [ laughter ] who i'm sure will bring this to a peaceful resolution soon. this really, i think this sums up who our president is. these tweets came within one hour of each other. okay? first, so now that matt lauer's gone, when will the fake news practitioners at nbc be terminating the contract of phil griffin and will they terminate low ratings joe score proceed based on the unsolved mystery that took place in florida years ago, investigate. that was followed one half an hour later by just spoke to president xi jinping of china concerning the provocative actions of north korea, additional major sanctions will be imposed on north korea today, the situation will be handled. so there you have it. the situation will be handled. there's no reason to worry at all. and by the way, in case you weren't aware, the first tweet is the president of the united
states accusing joe scarborough from "morning joe" of murdering his intern, because why not, right? we think the north koreans are crazy? at least they didn't elect their unstable leader. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] we picked him. he was not chosen by god. and then trump retweeted three anti-muslim videos. one of the titles, these titles, "muslim migrant beats up dutch boy on crutches." at least one of these videos he retweeted was fake. according to his press secretary, sarah huckabee sanders, it doesn't matter if the videos were real or fake -- see if you can make any sense of this. >> whether it's a real video, the threat is real. and that is what the president is talking about. that's what the president is focused on is dealing with those real threats. and those are real no matter how you look at it. >> jimmy: yes, the video the president sent around with the headline "muslims assault christian women" turned out to be an old zz top video, the beards had him confused.
[ laughter ] but it feels true and that's what's most important. it's insane. it's completely indisputably, if you don't think it is, you are also insane, by the way. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] the worst part of it is, if it's not bad enough, we're going to forget about it by tomorrow. in fact, i am forgetting about it right now as i stand here. [ laughter ] it's gone. it has gone away. the president is pushing his big tax break for the rich. he was in st. louis today speaking to a group of supporters. and i have to say he really seems to be loosening up. this is a long-overdue edition of "drunk donald trump." [ tape playing slowly ] >> hey, look, i'm president. yek. i don't care. i don't care anymore. i don't care. >> jimmy: all right, well, you know what?
[ cheers and applause ] maybe he got into the eggnog but at least he's being honest for a change. you know, all this sexual harassment stuff is not limited to the united states. it's also not limited to human beings. this is what's happening this week in australia. >> black friars priory school who is a proud tradition. it's new vietnamese statue will be remembered more for its eyebrow-raising innuendo than its artistic genius. the school wouldn't let us see it despite a black cloth covering the delicate sculptural bundle. >> jimmy: at least it's not a fountain, i guess. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] that statue you'll be happy to hear is now running for senator of alabama. have you seen the new -- they released a new "avengers" movie trailer. [ cheers and applause ] out this morning on "good morning america". the movie comes out next year. it stars every single living actor on effort.
all of them are in it. the idea of "infinity war" is an alien named thanos wants to destroy the planet. then he finds out we're already doing it so he goes home and takes a nap. captain america has now long hair and a beard. he looks like a dad after a very sad divorce. [ laughter ] just like the real america, captain is going through a rough patch right now. i have to admit i felt kind of ridiculous this morning. there's so many things going on, there's trump, there's health care, there's people i know getting charged with sexual harassment. the nuclear threat from north korea, this morning i spent ten minutes going frame by frame trying to figure out who was choking spider-man in the "avengers: infinity war" trailer and i wish i was joking about that but i'm not. i don't know what exactly this is. as a social experiment, let's call it that, i invited mike tyson, former boxer who's lived an unusual life, to try to do some things he's never done
before. and he graciously agreed. and with that said, with the holidays approaching, please enjoy this special gift-themed edition of "tyson tries it." hi and welcome to "tyson tries it." this is mike tyson, i'm jimmy. let's go. mike? have you ever wrapped a present? >> no. >> jimmy: never in your life? >> never. >> jimmy: never wrapped anything? >> never. >> jimmy: would you like to try it? >> no. >> jimmy: all right. that was "tyson doesn't actually try it." all right, well thank you, mike. [ cheers and applause ] we're going to take a break. when we come back from the break, an animal holiday tradition returns. guillermo and i dress up as santa's helpers to ask kids if they've been naughty or nice so far this year. stick around, we'll be right back with that.

>> jimmy: hi, there. tonight, from the movie "the florida project," brooklynn prince is here. she's -- this kid, she's a really good actress, she's only 7 years old. when i was 7 years old i was lighting hot wheels on fire and throwing them at my neighbors. probably the most popular boy band in all the world, their album is called "love yourself, her," all the way from south korea, bts from the mercedes-benz outdoor stage. [ cheers and applause ] fans go nuts for these guys. there was a huge campout in anticipation. this young woman decided she was going to climb the fence along
with the other young women. and you can see -- we're not exactly talking spider-man here. [ laughter ] get nothing help from anyone at all. so anyway, after a long struggle, she finally made it. and was facing the wrong way for the concert. [ laughter ] by the way, the funniest part is the fence, you'd think the fence was right at the stage? no. that fence, in fact, was at the high school across the street. thousands of yards away from the stage that the performance was at. so anyway, the climbing was for nothing is what i'm going to say. tomorrow night on the show, elizabeth banks will be here. from "the crown" matt smith will join us. and comedian chris laker too. and on friday, the force is with us, as the director and cast of "star wars: the last jedi" join us for a first glimpse at that one which i predict is going to be big. i wouldn't be surprised if it is number one at the box office. our first guest tonight does it all. he's an actor, writer, painter, director, teacher, student, and recently took up the ukulele.

particular thing. there are thousands of bad movies that we will never watch again. people have been watching this movie "the room" for 14 1/2 years. >> jimmy: it's been going on a long time. >> i was in london, people watch it in london. the best audience for the room is in london. they show it in paris in tokyo. >> jimmy: it makes them feel superior to americans when they see this kind of stuff. [ laughter ] although we don't even know if the lead character is -- we don't know where this guy came from. >> you can ask him. >> jimmy: he's going to be here in a minute. so this guy named tommy, and his friend, they weren't getting the acting roles that they wanted. >> yes. that's the back story. the back story is -- i came to it through the back story. i did not see "the room" when it was -- >> jimmy: when everybody was watching it and saying, you have to see this? >> the book came out about four years ago. i realized the story behind it was incredible. it was the same amount -- there was the same amount of passion in these guys as in anybody.
>> jimmy: as in coppola. >> right. it's just they ended up making something -- >> jimmy: terrible, yeah. >> yeah. i mean -- tommy's here. >> jimmy: tommy's here. when i say terrible, of course i mean terrific. [ laughter ] >> anyway, what i respect so much about tommy is, he got it made. how many people want to break into the movie business? millions people in the course -- in the history of movies. and they don't make it. tommy got his movie made. then not only that, it somehow, in some weird, crazy way, became this hit. >> jimmy: there's a billboard that was right down the block from our theater for many, many years. >> yeah. >> jimmy: how long was that billboard up, do you know? >> i think it was five years. >> jimmy: five years for a movie. >> on his own dime. >> jimmy: on his own dime by the way. >> that's hundreds of thousands of dollars. >> jimmy: this menacing billboard. i was fearful of this man when i
would drive by it. >> i was describing it to gary oldman the other day. i saw the lightbulb go off. he's like, oh, wait that bloody thing? i know that thing! you didn't know what gas. you thought it was -- somebody today was like, i thought that was a "wanted" poster. [ laughter ] i thought it was like a cult -- >> jimmy: it's got a phone number on it. what is the phone number to? >> that goes to tommy's apartment. >> jimmy: to his apartment. [ laughter ] >> hello? go see my movie. >> jimmy: you have put up your own billboard that is now in the exact same spot with the same phone number. is it still going to his apartment? >> well -- somebody answers. i don't know if i -- either me or tommy. >> jimmy: okay, somebody answers. >> somebody answers sometimes. >> jimmy: i want to show a clip, so we can explain. this is a clip from "the room." james franco is not in this clip. this is the original movie on which "the disaster artist" is
based. i did not hit her, it's not true, it's bull [ bleep ]. i did not hit her. i did not. oh, hi, mark. >> jimmy: okay, that's a real scene from a movie. now here is james franco playing that same role that tommy played. >> action! >> i did not hit her, it's not true, it's bull [ bleep ], i did not hit her, i did not. oh, hi, mark. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: very well done. so why was the green screen like that? >> because that's how they shot it. notice the building, the background of his shot, the buildings don't look like they fit there. they shot it in the parking lot of the rental -- the equipment rental place, burns and sawyer that used to be on la brea. why? i don't know. you'll have to ask. i still don't know. >> jimmy: they didn't rent
equipment, they bought all their equipment? >> tommy bought all the equipment. >> jimmy: how much money did he spend on this movie? >> i was told $6 million. hopefully tonight we'll get all the answers. >> jimmy: i would love to know. tommy is here. nobody knows how he got $6 million, nobody knows -- >> there are three mysteries. >> jimmy: okay. one is? >> i don't think we're going to get to the bottom of any of them, just a warning, but we can try. >> jimmy: let's try. >> how old he is. >> jimmy: okay. >> i think he's -- we can ask him. >> jimmy: he's an actor, nobody knows how old anybody is here. >> he says he was in his -- that clip we saw, he said he was in his 20s. >> jimmy: okay. that was 15 years ago, okay. >> yeah. where he's from. he sounds like this, right? i guess he's from new orleans? all-american guy? >> jimmy: uh-huh. >> where he got the money. >> jimmy: the $6 million. when we come back we'll see a clip from "the disaster artist" and meet tommy too.

whatever. he's like, look at lighting in beginning of the film, i think a little off. what i realized is he was wearing the glasses. he wears those when he watches movies.
