tv   Jimmy Kimmel Live  ABC  April 12, 2022 11:35pm-12:37am PDT

11:35 pm
we appreciate you -- our report. i am dan ashley. we appreciate your time. >> lou: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight, gillian anderson, janelle james, and music from syml. with cleto and the cletones. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: thank you. oh, that's very nice. thank you. hi, everyone. welcome. thanks for coming. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching the show and thank you for joining us here in hollywood, califoria, where we're hard at work but not for long. this -- i don't know, maybe i'm crazy, but this to me is puzzling. there is a bill working its way through the state legislature
11:36 pm
that would shorten the workweek here in california to 32 hours a week from 40. [ cheers and applause ] >> guillermo: [ bleep ] yeah! god bless america! whoo! ♪ >> jimmy: what is going on? [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> lou: shots, shots, shots! >> guillermo: shots, shots, shots! shots, shots, shots! >> jimmy: what's going on? >> guillermo: shots! >> jimmy: what this is? >> guillermo: what? >> jimmy: you guys work about 4 1/2 hours a week apiece. [ laughter ] >> guillermo: oh. >> lou: it feels like more. >> jimmy: it isn't more. >> guillermo: i feel you've been talking about three hours. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i've been talking less than two minutes, what are you talking about? >> lou: it has? >> jimmy: yes, it's been less
11:37 pm
than two minutes. >> lou: whew, rough. [ laughter ] so can we go home? >> jimmy: no, you can't go home. >> guillermo: wow, you sucks, dude. >> lou: yeah, dude. 32, 32! >> guillermo: 32, 32! >> lou: 32, 32! >> guillermo: 32, 32! >> jimmy: guys, i'm so sorry, made no idea that was going to happen. [ laughter ] the assembly, people who proposed this idea are evan low from san jose, and cristina garcia from here in l.a. which is funny because cristina garcia is perhaps best known for admitting she had, or maybe has, a keg of beer in her office. in sacramento. >> we think that's a similar saying, though i have beer in my fridge so i'm an alcoholic, yes. i have beer in my fridge, at some point i've had a keg in my office, a lot of us do, it's part of curl socializing, the way business gets done. >> jimmy: that's the way business gets done? [ laughter ]
11:38 pm
maybe at fuddrucker's. this is supposed to be the government. meanwhile, the biggest story in show business is that britney spears is pregnant with her third child. her father has already signed the kid up for a six-month residency in vegas. [ laughter and applause ] britney is 40 and her fiancé slash manager is in his 20s. [ cheers ] around here, we call that the "reverse dicaprio." [ laughter ] this is an exciting time for britney, knowing she's about to have another baby, and also for the paparazzi, who know they're about to buy a boat. [ laughter ] and the best part is the announcement, which came via instagram, gave our nation's newscasters a chance to spread their creative wings. >> oops, she did it again. or maybe we should say, hit me, baby, one more time. >> hit me, baby, one more time. >> hit me, baby, one more time. >> hit me, baby, one more time. >> hit me, baby, one more time. >> hit me, baby, one more time. >> hit me baby, one more time. >> hit me, baby, one more time. >> hit me, baby, one more time. >> hit me baby, one more time.
11:39 pm
♪ give me a sign hit me baby one more time ♪ >> jimmy: yeah, people love a song about a violent baby, i guess, i don't know. [ laughter ] there is another shocker of a story here in hollywood. you know, it's hard to get a movie made. you have oscar-winning writers, directors, actors -- every one of them has a project that can't get going. and so that is why it comes as a surprise to learn that spirit halloween -- you know those stores that pop up every fall? in place of other stores? they're salve convenient jer stores, they put a sign over when another store passes away. [ laughter ] they put a sign up and fill it full of knock-off harley quinn costumes. somehow, spirit halloween has inspired a movie. strike back studios and hideout pictures are teaming up to make a "spirit halloween" movie. two months thought this was a good idea. [ laughter ] maybe they figure if they go broke, they can turn their offices into a spirit halloween stores in i don't know. [ laughter ] the movie is called, get this, "spirit halloween," and it was the talk of the town. at least in milwaukee today.
11:40 pm
>> the halloween costume store is getting into the movie business. according to "variety," a new movie on the way based on the seasonal chain of stores. the movie is billed as a family adventure and will star "back to the future's" christopher lloyd. >> i thought christopher lloyd was no longer with us. [ laughter ] >> no, no, he continues working, he is one of the busiest actors in hollywood. >> okay. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh, maybe not one of the busiesting but alive for sure. [ laughter ] the plot of this movie, for real, "when a new spirit halloween store appears in a deserted strip mall, three middle school friends who think they've outgrown trick-or-treating make a dare to spend the night locked inside the store, they soon find out the store is haunted by a spirit who's possessed the creepy animatronic characters." which to me sounds like a visit to chuck e. cheese at any time of year. [ laughter ]
11:41 pm
christopher lloyd is gonna use his time machine to travel back to kill his agents for putting him in this movie. [ laughter ] why not a movie about the 99 cent store? "spirit halloween" isn't even a real store! it's a parasite that feeds off the bodies of dead stores! [ laughter ] but what do i know? the most popular show on netflix right now is called "is it cake?" [ laughterlau[ laughter ] in san francisco, local police were puzzled when they pulled over what turned out to be a driverless car. >> there's nobody in it! [ laughter ] >> this is crazy. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: and there it goes. send the ticket to elon musk or something, i don't know. [ laughter ] steven seagal turned 70 over the weekend. his ponytail turned 46. [ laughter ]
11:42 pm
steven seagal lives in moscow now. he became a russian citizen in 2016. he's got great timing. [ laughter ] and while his buddy putin was busy bombing innocent people, steven gave thanks and declared his love for his adopted russian friends. >> each and every one of you are my family, and you're my friends. and i love all of you. and we stand together. through thick and through thin. >> jimmy: he's been living there since 2016, he still doesn't speak one word of russian. [ laughter ] still uses a translator. it's like the whole second half of his life went straight to dvd. [ laughter ] [ applause ] speaking of russia, while we're on the subject, russia's neighbor, sarah palin, is making a comeback. [ laughter ] the former governor of alaska is running for congress, where she
11:43 pm
is the new frontrunner thanks to an endorsement from donald trump. i don't know about you but i don't think i can handle having sarah palin back in the mix every day. [ laughter ] the voice alone goes right through the center of my brain. if sarah palin is going to run for congress, and maybe even be elected to congress, we need to, and this will be good for both of us, for her and us, replace that horrible voice with morgan freeman's. [ laughter ] >> are you prepared for that onslaught? because it's going to be pretty vicious. [ morgan freeman's voice ] >> you know, i would never be so cocky as to say "bring it on." but yes, i anticipate that when i walk down that hall to get my diet dr pepper, sure, the jackals are going to be there doing their jack telling. and i just think i've got nothing to lose. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: much, much better i think, i don't know. so the other darling of fox news tucker carlson made an interesting confession at a mega church in san diego. he said he's not vaccinated.
11:44 pm
he said he wanted to get vaccinated but every time he tried, a caravan of migrants blocked him from the entrance to the cvs. [ laughter ] i have to say, i don't believe he isn't vaccinated, i don't believe it for a second. i think he is vaccinated. tucker carlson is the vaccine equivalent of the guy on the "titanic" who dressed as a woman to get on the lifeboat first. [ laughter ] the sickest part is his audience is mostly scared and impressionable senior citizens who happen to be the most vulnerable group when it comes to covid. this is like selling girl scout cookies outside a diabetes clinic. [ laughter ] but i'm glad to see the church welcoming prostitutes as jesus taught us to do. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] especially during this holy week. meanwhile, the mypillow man, mike lindell, is having a tough go of it. not only is lindell is being sued for more than a billion dollars by dominion voting systems, he was publicly served with a lawsuit filed by a former dominion employee. >> god bless you. >> thank you, mike, thank you
11:45 pm
for everything! >> what is this? sir? sir? what is this? >> it's for you. >> what is it? >> it's not from me, it's for you. >> okay, i need you to open it. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: it's fun to know you can walk up to mike lindell with everything and he'll grab it like a fiddler crab. [ laughter ] that aside, the biggest wrinkle in his dockers is that mike can't even sell pillows anymore. according to him, he's been banned from starring in his own commercials. >> i had 12 tv stations just the other day now say that i couldn't be in the commercials. that it can only say "mypillow." i cannot personally be in them. >> jimmy: that's not right. that's like telling joe camel he can't sell cigarettes.p[ laught] let's check in with mike because we haven't talked to him in a while and i'm a little bit worried -- >> i personally guarantee that mypillow will be the most comfortable pillow you'll ever
11:46 pm
own. >> jimmy: mike? are you there? is mike there -- can i speak to mike? >> cut, cut! who the heck is making words on my set? >> jimmy: mike, it's jimmy kimmel. >> dang it, jimby, you interrupted a good take! >> jimmy: i'm sorry about that. what are you shooting there? >> well, if you must know, the cancel & gretel illuminazis say i can't hawk my pillows on the boob tube no more. so i got my nephew juno stepping in as pitchman. hold the pillow higher, juno! like you're trying to smother the moon. >> jimmy: wait, i heard about this. you're not allowed to appear in your own commercials? >> i know! they're a-scared of me cause i'm a truth teller. like how i say the machines stole the election. or how i say marshmallow peeps are just mice covered in sugar! [ laughter ] or how i blew the lid off vin diesel not really being bald. >> jimmy: right, but wait -- vin diesel isn't really bald?
11:47 pm
>> heck no! he's got long flowing tresses like jared leto! but they're shadow banning his hairdo because the deep state don't want you to see dominic toretto with a blowout! [ laughter ] >> jimmy: interesting. >> uncle pillow? >> quiet, juno. i'm being interviewed on abc! >> uncle pillow? i have to tinkle. >> tinkle? you're on the clock! why, you lazy little s.o.b. -- i knew you'd betray me, juno. you're fired! vamanos! >> jimmy: mike, i think you're being a little bit hard on juno, aren't you? >> bullpucky! if that kid wants to sell pillows, he's gotta learn to clamp off his swizzle stick! [ laughter ] >> jimmy: okay, well. but if juno's gone, who's going to do your commercial? since you can't be on it. >> don't you worry about that. my secret is i always have a backup! don't go anywhere. >> jimmy: okay. where would i go? [ laughter ] right? i mean, i'm here for the duration, really. [ laughter ] oh, okay. oh -- wow. >> okay, where's mike? where's mike? let's do this.
11:48 pm
>> jimmy: mike, what are you doing? >> i'm not mike. i'm mike's beautiful sister, ophelia. >> jimmy: hello, ophelia. >> and unlike that judge "karate gi" brown jackson, i know what a woman is. i'm all lady from down deep in my baby cave all the way up to my sweater potatoes. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: wait, are you and mike twins? >> triplets actually. but we ate our other brother. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you ate your brother? >> we ate him on a camping trip when we were about 15. we ran outta trail mix and had to make some tough decisions. now leave me be, i gotta sell some pillows. >> jimmy: i'm so sorry, i'll just stand by while you do whatever you need to do there, ophelia. >> hi, i'm ophelia lindell. the government may try to muzzle my brother, but as someone who bathed with him well into our late 40s, i'm here to tell ya that mypillow is the best. pillow!
11:49 pm
order now and i'll throw in a train ride up my tummy tunnel. [ laughter ] operators are standing by. >> cut! great job, sis. let's go get us some tater tot hotdish. you need to talk to juno. did you know he made a tinkle during a shoot? >> no! >> yes! that's why i brought you in. i knew a certain level of professionalism was necessary. >> jimmy: well, there's mike and ophelia lindell, they're twins. or triplets. one of the sibs passed away. [ cheers and applause ] how about that? we have a great show tonight. janelle james from "abbott elementary" is with us. [ cheers and applause ] we have music from syml. we'll be right back with gillian anderson, so stick around!

11:55 pm
>> jimmy: how are you? >> i'm good. >> jimmy: good to see you in person. >> i know. >> jimmy: last time you were on zoom from england in the middle of the night. >> it was horrible. >> jimmy: you had to get up -- i know, that must have been terrible. >> i didn't get up, i stayed up. >> jimmy: you stayed up, right, yeah. then i don't know if you remember this, but i thought about it. at that time you were on "the crown." you were playing margaret thatcher. >> that's right. >> jimmy: you remember that, i assume? >> i do. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: it was a full ten months before the emmys and i predicted that you would win the emmy for your role, and guess what happened? you won the emmy for your role. [ cheers and applause ] not that i bear any -- not that i can claim any responsibility, but i wonder if when your name was read if you thought, oh my god, he was right! [ laughter ] >> i should have thanked you. >> jimmy: yeah, you should have,
11:56 pm
it would have been nice, yeah. maybe the next one. maybe for this. you know? >> oh, for this. >> jimmy: yeah. >> not for this. >> jimmy: not for this, no, no. [ laughter ] noness that for this. >> thank you for having me. >> jimmy: i didn't mean that as i meant it on me, yes. but it's very good to see you. what time was it when you won that emmy? because you had the whole cast of "the crown" gathered together. >> yeah. >> jimmy: and it was what, 4:00 in the morning? >> over there, something like p. we were in london, and we got to be there all together in the same room which was kind of nice, because we'd been separate for a long time. we didn't get to finish the filming by a couple of weeks. or say good-bye. that was the first time we were seeing each other again, which was nice. when i was in for the golden globes, i was shooting in prague. and was alone in a hotel room. >> jimmy: really? >> all dressed up in front of a computer for the entire golden globes. but there was a technician who was there in the room with me.
11:57 pm
>> jimmy: even worse. [ laughter ] >> even worse. kind of would have been okay to be alone and just -- you know. but there's this guy that i didn't even know over in the corner, you know, watching the whole thing, every once in a while would clap. watching we make my acceptance speech. then at one point he snuck a picture at one point. [ laughter ] i was like, who is this guy? >> jimmy: how very strange. >> it was really weird. >> jimmy: and then to add to the strangeness, you got this. now, this is a gift forth golden globes? or for the emmy? >> oh, wow. >> jimmy: i'm going to hold up up but i know it's going to have to be blurred because it's profane. [ laughter and moans ] this is a cake? >> but you guys can't really see how "big" it was. [ laughter ] it was half my height. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: was it really? > oh, yeah. >> jimmy: oh, wow. >> i should have taken a picture with perspective, me next to it.
11:58 pm
but it was huge. >> jimmy: did you eat it? >> well. [ laughter ] at one point after awhile i sliced off a ball. [ laughter ] and passed it away. and we had a little, you know -- a little taste. >> jimmy: what size were the balls? >> like this. >> jimmy: like a cantaloupe? like a soccer ball? >> no, like a small cantaloupe. >> jimmy: okay. >> like yours. [ laughter ] no doubt. i mean, not that i've seen them. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that was quite a -- how was it? did it taste good? >> yes. >> jimmy: yeah it did. >> it had been there for a couple of weeks but it still tasted good. >> jimmy: our standards and practices guy, the guy who's the network censor, is having a seizure right now. [ laughter ] >> i'm sure he is. >> jimmy: unfortunately, no one at home knows what i just showed. but i think you can probably figure it out. [ laughter ] you won your first emmy for "x-files," right? what year was that?
11:59 pm
>> i don't know. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: probably like -- '97? something like that? >> it was third season, we started in '94. '97. >> jimmy: oh, very good. you remember. in fact, this is something that -- i'm not sure who made this connection. but now you're playing eleanor roosevelt. >> yes. >> jimmy: i don't know if you know about this, from the "x-files," mulder asks scully, your character, if you could be one person besides yourself, who would you be? this was scully's answer. >> all right, then. eleanor roosevelt. >> jimmy: eleanor roosevelt! [ cheers and applause ] >> wow. >> jimmy: as if that show wasn't weird enough. i mean, this was like some sort of weird met have a verse thing. >> you and that -- >> jimmy: really just it. >> it's really strange. it is true. it is actually true. >> jimmy: did you think about that? did that ring a bell for you? >> no.
12:00 am
>> jimmy: i can't imagine looking at you going, "you know who would be a great eleanor roosevelt." i know you're a great actor, but i mean, you know, listen -- >> when they first offered me the job i was like, what? [ laughter ] i'm like, you know, i'm short. i'm 5'3" she was 6 foot tall. >> jimmy: she was? >> yeah, even when they were shooting, even though i wore as high shoes as i could get away with, i was shorter than anybody else on the show. but we started to ignore that. i assumed since they were hiring me, after i told them, look, you guys, are you sure? i was figuring they'd have ramps built and stuff like we do in the "x-files," we used to have ramps. >> jimmy: isn't it nice to be at the point in your career where somebody offers you a pretty great part and you're like, "are you guys sure? i don't know if i'm sold." [ laughter ] we dug up what i think is maybe your first paid acting gig. correct me if i'm wrong. but i believe you were about 18 years old here. >> okay. >> kathy wasn't too popular with
12:01 am
her co-workers. she'd rather work than go out with the gang. kathy had acne. she was self-conscious and believed no one could see past her ugly blemishes. the doctor recommended she visit the advanced dermatology centers. today kathy is a new person, still working hard, now she has a new life and she's doing great things with it. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: do you remember how much you got paid for that? >> i don't. somebody sent this to me a few months ago, whatever. ths is the first time, i swear in my life, i've seen it. i wasn't actually present. i was not there in that room. >> jimmy: it wasn't in your reel? >> i mean, what the hell? [ laughter ] it's so bizarre. then at the end when he comes up to me, he like looks down as if he's starting to undo my jacket or something. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah maybe he was. >> the creepiest thing. i got so happy when he walked in the room. >> jimmy: when we come back, we will see a scene from the show.

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that is gillian anderson in "the first lady." premieres sunday on showtime. this is quite a cast you're involved with here. >> i know. >> jimmy: viola davis was here last night. >> i heard. >> jimmy: she has this issue where she had to worry about michelle obama seeing it. you don't have that. >> she had it worse off than i did. >> jimmy: yes, for sure, yes. she had a lot of pressure there. >> nobody remembers eleanor roosevelt. >> jimmy: people will certainly remember, i think yeah, but they weren't alive. >> jimmy: right there wasn't a ton of video, she wasn't out, you know -- she wasn't doing talk shows and stuff like that. >> no, she wasn't. >> jimmy: the teeth.
12:08 am
was that terrible, wearing the teeth? >> it actually wasn't. it helped. so i had prosthetic teeth in, which is the first time that i've tried them. and i felt like they really helped. they helped me to get into character. and then as she got older, i had a couple of pieces down here, too, on the inside, that kind of helped me get a bit more jowly. >> jimmy: viola plays michelle obama, michelle pfeiffer plays betty ford. did you cross paths at all? >> no. the first time we met was the last time i was in l.a. a couple of weeks ago for a cbs interview. >> jimmy: and at no point do the three of you appear on screen together, but wouldn't that be something? >> that is correct. >> jimmy: wouldn't that be the greatest? sounds like a lunch. >> yes. >> jimmy: you, betty ford, eleanor roosevelt, michelle obama play like a game of pickleball or something on the white house lawn. [ laughter ] >> my dad plays pickleball. i don't know what pickleball is. >> jimmy: you brought some more
12:09 am
photos. again, we're going to have to blur a little bit of this. >> life is a blur. >> jimmy: life is a blur, you're right. [ laughter ] there's eleanor roosevelt relaxing. [ applause ] there's eleanor roosevelt having a read. and finally -- [ applause ] >> there's a fantastic propswoman called cindy who worked on the show. and i just -- she took pictures of me all the time. so i, you know. >> jimmy: you gave her the finger each time. [ laughter ] >> every once in a while. >> jimmy: have you met a first lady or a president of the united states or both? >> i've never met a first lady. i have met a president. i met clinton. >> jimmy: when was this that you met bill clinton? >> i met him when he was running for office, first time. it was a lunch for him at somebody's fancy house in the hollywood hills. >> jimmy: the first time he was running? >> first time. >> jimmy: wow. >> then at the end of his -- whatever, we created a line for him to walk down the line and
12:10 am
shake hands, and we got to meet mill him. he did the most miraculous thing in the world. you know that thing that he does, where he shakes your hand, then he grabs your elbow at the same time. he holds your arm further up. >> jimmy: yeah, right. >> slightly intimate little thing. >> jimmy: uh-huh, yeah. >> makes eye contact. >> jimmy: he does. >> and he moves on to the next person. then he looks back at you. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah. i got all of that except for the look back. i did not experience the look back. >> i went home, i thought, this was in the days of answering machines. i literally thought that i was going to go home to a message from him. [ laughter ] i did. it was that real. >> jimmy: really? >> uh-huh. >> jimmy: well, yeah. i mean, probably your answering machine was broken because he definitely called. oh, that's something else. >> yeah. >> jimmy: then did you vote for him after that? >> um -- [ laughter ]
12:11 am
yes. >> jimmy: you did, even though he didn't call? >> even though he didn't call. >> jimmy: he's probably going to call now.

12:27 am
didn't have a problem with it. you know, hey, i don't like that wig that you have on. they just say things that adults wouldn't say, you know. >> jimmy: and as far as next season goes, i guess the way it could work is, if you don't lik grade, you swap out the whole group of kids. >> my characters don't -- doesn't have a class anyway, so i don't care. >> jimmy: right. but there are kids running around, i would imagine, while you're working. >> there are. not that i don't like them, but i don't have to interact with them too much. they do move, they are going to move to their different grade as if it's a real school. >> jimmy: i see. and if you really like one, you hold them back? >> pluck him out, yeah. >> jimmy: that's kind of nice. are you getting recognized now? is this becoming a thing now where people want autographs and selfies? >> people scream at me. and i have to remind them i'm not michael jackson.

12:29 am
gets very upset. >> jimmy: he does? [ laughter ] >> yes. for example, one of my cousins very boldly told him, you know that wrestling isn't real. and he didn't speak to him for like two years. [ laughter ] so i just let him have it. >> jimmy: you toured -- what year did you tour with chris rock? >> i'm not exactly sure the year. but it was for his last special tambourine tour. >> jimmy: okay, right. and was that, getting up on stage, i mean, probably 15,000, 17,000, 20,000 people, was that something you had ever experienced before? >> no. and it sounds scarier than it is. but what happens is you don't see those people back there anyway, it's in the dark, thankfully. and the only scary thing is you think you're bombing because the laughs don't reach you until after you're going to the next joke. >> jimmy: i see. >> you're like, i'm dying up here. you start saying the next thing. oh, wait, there it is! that kind of thing. >> jimmy: it's like the comedy version of singing the national anthem or something. >> exactly. >> jimmy: did chris rock himself

personally invite you to be part of the tour? >> he did. one of the best moments of my life. >> jimmy: really? how did it happen? >> it was -- [ applause ] hey! >> jimmy: that was the delay she was talking about. >> yeah.

[ laughter ] and he called me. it was a private number. and usually you don't answer that, that's a scam. but something told me to answer it, and i answered it, and he said, janelle james? christopher rock. and so usually i would think, oh, it's another comedian playing some trick on me. but who would say christopher rock? you know what i mean? [ laughter ] yeah, and he was like, you're very funny, as you know, i'd like to invite you on the tour. and the rest is written. >> jimmy: wow. congratulations on all of it.
