facebook is partnering with fox news for the debate tomorrow to provide questions and track voters' responses to the candidates. yeah, which will get weird when they're like "this next question is from someone named mitt and he says -- [ laughter ] you miss me yet?" [ cheers and applause ] yeah, we miss you a little bit. fox news has already announced its debate lineup and, unfortunately, rick perry did not make the final cut. [ audience aws ] which explains rick perry's new campaign slogan, "phew." [ laughter ] that was going to be hard. yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, wow. the debate rules also state that the highest polling candidate is given the middle podium, which means donald trump will be center stage tomorrow night. [ laughter ] well that, and the fact that he was going to stand there anyway. so it's like, "move it, losers." [ laughter ] you know he would do it, right? yeah. i saw that in a recent interview donald trump said that scott walker and
marco rubio both gave him gifts in recent years, but he's already lost them. [ light laughter ] it got worse when they asked what those gifts were, and trump was like, "puppies." [ laughter and applause ] i don't know what happened to 'em. get this, in an interview last month, ted cruz talked about his favorite foods, and said that he would like to roast a a pig on the south lawn of the white house. well, chris christie started talking about his favorite foods in an interview last month, and that interview is still going on.

[ laughter and applause ] >> steve: really? woah. >> jimmy: did you guys hear about this? delta and united airlines announced this week that they will no longer allow passengers to transport animals that they killed on hunting trips. [ cheers and applause ] which begs the question, there was a time when you could do that? [ laughter ] wait, i can't bring a bottle of water on, but the dude putting an elephant in the overhead bin? [ laughter and applause ] you can't have that shampoo. you bring that wild boar right over here. he was like -- [ laughter ] you guys probably heard about -- did you hear about this minion, the story about the giant minion balloon that -- so it caused a big traffic jam in ireland. [ laughter ] a giant minion went rogue. and, so anyways, now there's some video of the whole thing. it's pretty good. take a look at this. this is real. [ wind blowing ]
[ laughter ] [ laughter ] >> jimmy: isn't that crazy? [ cheers and applause ] you think that's scary, imagine being an elderly driver who's never heard of minions. like, "oh, my god! it's the end." i love that the car was honking, too. it's like, "out of the way, you bloody minions." [ laughter ] and finally, you guys, kraft has recalled some of its cheese singles after some reports that americans have been choking on the plastic wrapping.

people a nice little slice of american history, you know, from our point of view. from compton. so you know, it was a labor of love, and you know, i'm pinching myself every day. because i'm on cloud nine, ten and 11.

know, public enemy and n.w.a. and stuff that was going on in the hip-hop world. >> jimmy: i remember. it was one of the albums that i had to hide from my parents. [ light laughter ] >> questlove: i never heard nothing like ever. >> jimmy: never in my life. it scared me when i played it. >> that's how you know it's good. >> jimmy: it frightened me. oh, and eazy-e. i loved eazy-e. >> yeah, yeah. rest in piece, eazy-e. >> jimmy: absolutely. but i mean, it was the first album, i just found this out, to have the parental sticker on it. >> yeah, you know. [ light laughter ] it was the first album that -- we were in the battle doing that music back in the day with all kind of public figures, you know. al gore's wife, tipper gore, came after us with the pmrc and the compromise was to put the stickers on the record. the parental advisory stickers, to put them on the record. and what ended up happening is we ended up selling more records, because the kids didn't want to buy them unless they had the stickers on it. [ light laughter ] so it was just backfired on
them. you know what i mean? >> jimmy: if you didn't have that sticker, you'd have to go back in and redo the record. >> no doubt. you know, people just was putting stickers on their record. you know what i mean? it was gospel albums putting a a sticker on there. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: and one of the -- the biggest song is, uh, f.t.p. >> what, what, what? >> jimmy: yeah. the original title was "make love to the police." [ laughter ] you changed it. it gave it a little more edge. because that's the way you dealt with it. you didn't have a good relationship with the l.a.p.d. back then. >> hey man, you know how they do, you know what i mean? [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah. >> you know how they do. they're fairly depicted in this movie for sure. >> jimmy: okay, good. yeah, yeah. [ light laughter ] but if you see the movie, friendship is really the heart of the film. so all you guys together and just young guys, and like, not even knowing what you're making. >> yeah. you know, f. gary gray, the
director of "friday" he -- i mean, "friday." >> jimmy: yeah. >> he did direct "friday." but he directed this movie, too. let me get back into 20 years. >> jimmy: a bunch of great movies. >> he directed this movie. he wanted -- he said he didn't want people to be able to google this movie or wikipedia and see everything, you know, that's in the movie. he wanted to go behind the veil. he wanted to deal with the friendships, the brotherhood, the break-ups and the make-ups and all that. and you know, we got a movie that will make you laugh. it will make you cheer. and it will make you cry. >> jimmy: fantastic. it really is fun. it's what you want in a movie.

[ light laughter ] >> jimmy: come on. >> no, it did happen.
it went down like that. you know. >> jimmy: why did you think that was a tactic that would be good? [ laughter ] >> i was young. i needed the money. [ laughter ] you know, i was playing the game, man. i was playing the lawyer to pick up the pen, make the phone call. and i was so frustrated at the time. so many people had lied to me by then that i just couldn't take it no more. it wasn't the right thing to do, but it felt good.

[ light laughter ] this is a clip of mamie gummer. was this your debut, i'm assuming? >> yes, this is my film debut. i had done a lot of stage. >> jimmy: yes, of course, a lot of stage. she's probably about six months old. here is you singing with your mom in "heartburn." watch this. ♪ itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again ♪ >> again? >> yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: yeah. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> well, you know. >> jimmy: come on, so cute. >> i mean, we did it again. >> jimmy: and you did it again. yeah. absolutely. did you get your acting bug from that? or no? >> yeah, well, apparently -- i guess i'd been kind of selling myself short a little bit in terms of my performance in that film.
>> jimmy: yeah, of course. >> i thought i was just a baby. and i was there. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. you were in the role of the character of the baby. yeah, exactly. you weren't just being a baby. >> yeah. >> jimmy: you were just having fun with mommy. >> it was like a really cute baby. but actually, i did have to, you know, make some choices and perform a little bit because i was older. i was 20 months or something playing a 1-year-old. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: hello. the academy really dropped the ball on that one. i mean really dropped the ball. yeah. [ applause ] >> thank you. >> jimmy: very believable. >> thank you. >> jimmy: but then did you like do plays? did you put on shows as a kid? >> yes, constantly. endlessly. and the shows themselves were endless. >> jimmy: wait for like, for your parents, your mom and dad? >> yeah. >> jimmy: oh, that's cute. >> yeah, they were really long. and any time anyone tried to get up and leave, i said, "it's not over!" [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you would write the plays and act in the plays?
>> uh-huh. >> jimmy: oh, that's great. and performed the whole -- >> i don't know that it was so great. for everybody else. >> jimmy: for everybody else. >> but i had -- clearly i enjoyed it, because i kept on doing it. >> jimmy: yeah, you had a bunch of them. and did you -- do you save the plays? do you still have them? >> obviously, i mean -- there are home videos, i'm sure. >> jimmy: oh, next time you come on, we need to see this. >> i don't know if the tape is long enough. yeah. >> jimmy: oh, we gotta see this next time. >> you'll have to talk to my dad. >> jimmy: how is it like when you're -- i enjoyed the movie, and i see these scenes. but you're in a scene with your mom playing your mom in the movie. again, a big acting stretch. [ laughter ] but then you have to -- what do you call it? you have to really yell at her and scream at her. >> yeah. >> jimmy: and i would be nervous if that was my mom. >> i was. that's true. i was nervous. i was a little -- >> jimmy: did you feel guilty yelling at your mom? >> i felt like i didn't -- i didn't want her to like -- i didn't want it to be wounding in any way. >> jimmy: yeah, that's what i would feel, too. >> but then i -- the director yelled "cut" and i looked at her and i was about to run over and give her a hug and tell her it was all make believe. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: "i'm just kidding,
mom. i really love you." >> but she just had this big grin on her face, because i think she's just proud of me. >> jimmy: aw, come on, see? that's awesome. [ applause ] she should be proud of you. >> thanks. >> jimmy: but jonathan demme was the director. amazing. he wanted to create some tension on the set. >> yes, that's right. >> jimmy: and so he told your mom not to talk to you? >> yeah, yeah, yeah. yup. >> jimmy: and your mom did it? >> uh-uh. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: did you know what was going on? >> no. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: this is very interesting. >> i know. i didn't know what was going on. he told her that he felt that we should be separated. and so she was game. and she went along with that. but nobody told me that. so i just sort of felt like, why is everybody like hanging out without me? [ audience awes ] i know, thank you. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: wait, wait, wait. you're making us feel bad, but this added to your performance. >> yeah, yeah. i mean -- but ultimately the idea was to kind of play into, i think -- i think, i haven't actually
confirmed this with him. this is just what i've decided -- that he wanted her to feel abandoned and, you know, kind of play -- feed into the anger that she had. >> jimmy: did you eventually know what was going on? did you go, "oh, they're doing this on purpose?" >> yeah. >> jimmy: yeah. you go, "i figured you out, jonathan. yeah, don't tell me what to do." >> i went to theater school. >> jimmy: hello, i played a a 21-month-old and i was a a 20-month, okay? [ laughter ] yeah. it's fun. i want to show everyone. great performance by the way. fantastic. we have a clip. here's mamie gummer in "ricki and the flash." take a look at this. >> uh -- i don't have any money. do you have a credit card? >> yeah, but it's still linked to max's account. >> oh, that's not a problem. hop in.
