[ cheers and applause ] . >> steve: from studio 6b in rockefeller center, the national broadcasting company presents -- tonight's guests are -- and featuring the legendary roots crew. and here he is -- jimmy fallon! [ cheers and applause ] captions paid for by nbc-universal television
12:38 am
-- captions by vitac -- ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh, wow. i come out here, and -- hey! how you guys feeling? you feeling good? [ cheers and applause ] welcome, welcome, welcome. welcome to "late night with jimmy fallon," everybody. let's get right to the news. yesterday president obama thanked the wnba champions, the phoenix mercury, for showing his daughters that they can be athletic and still be attractive. and then michelle obama said -- [ clears throat ] [ laughter ] at a campaign event yesterday, joe biden called nancy pelosi the mother of health care. and i guess pelosi's tackling other problems, too, because biden also called her "the milf of the oil spill-f." [ laughter ] spill-f a word? >> steve: it must be. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: spill-f is a word?
12:39 am
>> steve: the vice president said it, it must be. >> jimmy: all right. did you guys hear this? lindsay lohan's lawyer, robert shapiro, who was famous for representing o.j. simpson -- he quit just a few hours before she went to jail. [ light laughter ] that's gotta sting when your lawyer goes, "i can't handle you anymore. why can't you be more like o.j. simpson?" [ laughter and applause ] "just too much for me." this is an amazing story. a black couple in britain just had a white baby girl with blond hair and blue eyes. the father called the baby "simply unexplainable." [ laughter ] while the mother called the father, "unbelievably gullible." [ laughter and applause ] this kind of thing is actually more common than you think, according to the couple's white friend. [ laughter ] "this happens all the time, absolutely!" [ laughter ]
12:40 am
i just heard about this. a school in massachusetts is facing criticism for sending kids home with fat report cards that alert their parents to obesity issues. that's got to be confusing. "well, gary, the good news is you got an 'a.' the bad news is it's between an 'f' and a 't.'" [ laughter ] "you're fat, gary! you're fat! now get to your room! here's a snickers bar. get out of here! you're fat, gary! get over here, gary. i love you." [ laughter ] hey, you guys, jwoww, from "jersey shore," is in the august issue of "maxim" wearing a bikini. well, yeah. the only other way you can see her in a bikini is if you have a tv or eyeballs. [ laughter ] this is kind of weird. a lot of city governments across
12:41 am
the country are renting police officers to save money. that doesn't sound like a city government. that sounds like a bachelorette party. [ laughter ] "hey, you girls are under arrest -- ♪ -- for being hot!" [ cheers ] "you got the right to remain horny." [ laughter ] ♪ "everything i have will be held against you in court." [ laughter ] ♪ i can't believe this. the police were called in in texas yesterday when a low flying plane dropped duffle bags with marijuana on several houses. wait, when someone drops a bag of weed on your house, you don't call the cops. you call papa john's. [ laughter ] "yo, dude, it's a party!"
12:42 am
that's right, duffle bags full of marijuana were dropped on houses by a plane. that must have been weird for anyone who was already high. [ laughter ] "dude, i may be stoned right now, but i'm pretty sure god just totally hooked us up." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] video game players? anyone play video games out there? [ cheers ] nintendo wii is going to release a "glee" version of karaoke revolution that will let you interact with music and characters from the show. it also has a feature where, if one your friends walks into the room, it turns into "call of duty." [ laughter ] "uh, kill them. kill them. murder them. you guys in the fox hole! you have to get in the tank." [ laughter ]
12:43 am
do the same dance as the stripper. [ laughter ] i can't think of another one. [ light laughter ] i also heard that f. scott fitzgerald's novel "the great gatsby" is being turned into a video game. you can tell the video game is about "the great gatsby," because no one will ever really play it, but still claim it's one of their favorites on facebook. [ laughter ] speaking of facebook, there is a new computer program that can delete all mentions of your ex from your facebook page. yeah, the program is called, "your new girlfriend." [ laughter ] "you are not talking to her. you are not friends with her!" [ laughter ] "there is no way this is happening!" [ light laughter ] i don't know what girl talks like that. [ light laughter ] and finally, i don't even know what to make of this. a man in iowa was arrested and taken to jail after he punched another man who refused to hug him. [ laughter ] confusing.
12:44 am
on the bright side, once he got to jail, he got more than his share of hugs. [ laughter ] [ audience groans ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show. give it up for the roots! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ >> jimmy: what a great show for you guys tonight. [ cheers and applause ] so good. but first, i want you to take a look at a clip from a show that we did last month. this is an audience member named monique from brooklyn, new york, playing a game on our show called "cell phone shootout." take a look. >> jimmy: you're the last one. let's see what you got here, pal. running sneakers. >> steve: whoa! you have won a chance to run in the missoula marathon in missoula, montana. [ cheers and applause ] the missoula marathon begins west of town, passes through missoula's picturesque neighborhoods, ending at the finish line on higgins bridge, downtown above the clark fork river.
12:45 am
we'll do the hard part, signing you up and paying the entrance fee. [ laughter ] all you have to do is show up in missoula, montana, on july 11th and run 26.2 miles. jimmy? [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i don't know how good you are at reading faces, but i think it's safe to say that she is not super-psyched about winning that great prize. [ laughter ] why would she not be excited? we paid her $20 to register for the marathon. [ laughter ] now all she has to do is fly herself there and run 26 miles. what's the big deal? it's a great prize. let's see that reaction one more time. [ laughter ] so, we were really surprised to find out that the people at the missoula marathon flew her out and treated her like a celebrity, which is awesome. here's the cell phone shot of monique arriving in a hummer limousine. [ laughter ] and here she is walking the race with her dad. how awesome is that? [ cheers and applause ] that's fantastic. she went and did it.
12:46 am

1:06 am
terrifying. i'm just barely in the movie now. if you watch it, i'm on for, like, one scene. and if you look at my face, i look like i'm completely terrified, because i was. i was 18 years old. it was woody allen, diane keaton, anjelica huston. and i don't know. i was very, very nervous. >> jimmy: that would be like you made it. >> yeah, it was like my hero. and i memorized my lines perfectly. and right before we're about to go, and he's like, "we're not going to say anything that's on the page." [ laughter ] i do it a pretty bad woody allen impression. but anyway. >> jimmy: that's not bad. >> and i was like, "really?" so, they just started improving, and i'm trying to get a word in edgewise. and here i am trying to get woody allen back on script. i'm like, "come on, man. those lines aren't in the scene." i was a mess. i couldn't improv alongside woody and diane keaton. >> jimmy: no, you can't do that. you were telling me backstage your character's name was nick? >> yeah. so, he comes up to me and, you know, i cherish any time he would talk to me.
1:07 am
you know, he's a hero of mine. and he comes up to me and he's like, "you know why i named your character nick?" and i'm thinking, "oh, my god. i'm a filmmaker, i'm an actor. i'm about to get a little piece of advice. i'm going to remember, why does he name the characters what he names them." and he goes, "do you know why i named your character nick?" and i said, "no." he goes, "easy to type." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: classic woody allen. that is so classic woody allen. "easy to type." [ applause ] you also, before that even, you worked on music videos. right? >> yeah. >> jimmy: as a production assistant? >> i did everything. i wanted to make movies, so i worked production assistant on music videos, commercials and stuff. i worked on a mariah carey music video. i worked on -- >> jimmy: are they fun, to do those music videos? >> no, they're chaos. everything always seems like it comes together at the last second. they're like, "mariah's in town. we're making the video tonight." and it's so funny because i was fresh out of film school. so i took it on me to be so anxious. you know, i was a p.a. i was, like, carrying stuff. but i personally got so anxious. i was like, "we're not going to be ready for mariah!" [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that was helpful.
1:08 am
>> i was so nervous. meanwhile, everyone else was like, "yeah, we'll be all right. don't worry." but i'm freaking out, and i took my job very seriously. >> jimmy: you did a video with sting. >> well, sting and pras. it was the puffy remix of "roxanne."

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: so what is it about? >> it's about -- the play is really hard to describe because i don't want to -- a lot of it unfolds, and i don't want to ruin too much. but at its very core, it's about a guy who makes a ton of money with his internet company.
1:15 am
he makes, like, $303 million, and then is completely lost with what to do with the rest of his life. and so, he stumbles into an s&m parlor to see what that's like. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: just stumbles in, yeah. >> and he chooses to go to the parlor because he's looking for something crazy and new. and then the play is what happens after he makes the decision to go. it's a comedy, but it's kind of a sexy, dark comedy. >> jimmy: that's good. and it's written by? >> paul weitz. >> jimmy: paul weitz. >> he's a really amazing writer. >> jimmy: have you done plays before? >> the funny thing is i've done three shakespearean plays. this is my first contemporary play. and it's actually easier, i find, to memorize shakespeare because it's lyrical and it's poetry. you know, it's like memorizing lyrics to a song. >> jimmy: yeah. >> this is -- you know, the way paul writes is the way we all really talk. like, "um," and "you know, i mean --" so there's those -- "ums" and "uhs," and that's really, really hard to get perfectly because they want you to do it perfectly. >> jimmy: because you say, "like, um and then --" >> yeah, there's a girl on the crew, her name is ashley, and
1:16 am
she's in charge of making sure we say it perfectly. so, she's like, "if you get it perfect, i'll give you a sticker." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: come on! >> at first, i'm like, "i'm 35 years old. i don't want an f-ing sticker." [ laughter ] and then i found myself, like, competitive. like, "i've got to get a sticker." [ laughter ] she gives me, like, this little, "great job" sticker and puts it on my hand. and i'm so excited about getting these stickers. and i did one, and i was like, "i think i did it perfectly." i looked at her. i was like, "sticker?" and she's like, "you disgust me."
