capital is are so frequently confused for lower case ls i cried. a pastor in missouri is taking a leave of absence after he told women in a recent sermon that while not everyone can look like melania trump, quote, "you don't need to look like a butch either." so it wasn't a leave of absence so much as a sprint for his life chicago mayor lori lightfoot announced yesterday that the cubs and white sox will be able to fill their stadiums at 20% capacity on opening day, or, as the mets call that, an attendance record! things may turn around, steve, but until they do! it will be a steady dose of those! trump's gone, steve, we don't have much! according to a new report, dozens of people at a florida vaccination site falsely claimed they were health care workers to receive the coronavirus vaccine. though the local halloween store had its biggest march ever facebook ceo mark zuckerberg said yesterday that smart

12:49 am
you know, kenan's an old friend of mine and i've been a long-time fan of yours so i was delighted to see you were working together how did you end up in this project? >> well, i was -- they plucked me out of the unemployment line. and, you know, and it was a good choice but -- no, i, you know, i got a -- i got a - i think probably it all started -- lorne and i have been friends for a long time. and about a year ago or so, can't remember, covid has made my brain mush. lorne asked me to do a table read with michael cera and i did, and then i never heard from him again so i said, "well, that must have been a bust. but then meanwhile, this -- he called me, and he sent me this he said, "here, take a look at this, see what you think, blah, blah, blah." and here i am. >> seth: now we had kenan on, who said it is both a delight to work with you, and it's also a delight to hear stories about your work in the '80s. it did strike me that maybe the
12:50 am
"miami vice" set was a little wilder than the "kenan" set. [ light laughter ] >> i don't know. it's all a little bit hazy i think -- yeah. well, you know, given that we pretty much owned the city of miami. and -- and we had a party sequence in every episode, and i was single and, you know, it was kind of like -- you know it was kind of like joyful [ laughter ] >> seth: i'm very -- i'm very happy you don't look back on it with any regret. it just seems lovely >> i don't remember one bad moment not one. [ laughter ] >> seth: i can tell you, you know, of course the other thing you guys did is you developed a style, you know, that maybe was accurate to miami, but the rest of us didn't know anything about it and this is a true story i remember going off to a school dance. you know, and i was probably 11, 12 years old and my dad said, you should roll
12:51 am
up your sleeves of your blazer, "miami vice" style even as a kid i thought, "i think you're wrong, dad. [ laughter ] >> he -- he was wrong. there were -- there were a lot of fools that were trying to pull that off. and let's face it, you know. it's a -- it's a thing >> seth: yeah. i think it helps -- it helps a lot to look like don johnson when you want to pull off that look >> yeah. >> seth: i say that as a compliment >> i thank you very much i was joking you know, it's very flattering that something that i did that was out of practical reasons - i don't know if you're aware of this, but it's hotter than - uh -- in miami and so i just started taking off clothes. the socks, the belt. that t-shirt was just the front. the unstructured jackets and the linen, the linen clothes and even then i said, "hey, i'm still pretty damn hot. okay these sleeves are going up."
12:52 am
>> seth: well, it worked out i guess sometimes, yeah, that's the mother of invention. i want to ask as well, you know, you were doing a show obviously on location. did that give you a good deal more amount of freedom because you didn't have the sort of nbc execs around in the way they would if you were in l.a. or new york? >> you know, it was kind of -- it was -- it was kind of being marooned a little bit. because, you know, we were up very early and everybody in california sleeps until -- they don't even come in until 10:00 or 11:00 and so by the time they would come into the office, we already had half a day's work shot and they would be sending us pages and changes and we'd go, "no, no, you don't understand. that boat is already gone. so they'd get -- i mean, we'd make stuff up, you know, and just say, "oh, this is a good idea, let's do this. because we all came out of independent films and stuff. i mean, i'm not sure that we even knew what a permit was.
12:53 am
we just would say, "oh, well, let's crash the car here in the middle of this intersection. watch out, there's a couple people there, we should probably get rid of them. but yeah we were just kind of wild men down there going, you know - making a crazy show. >> seth: it's so interesting you say that because i feel like people might forget now that it was -- it did feel so much more cinematic than what anybody was used to on television at the time and so it made sense that you guys all came from film, because it certainly showed up in the product. >> yeah, it did. you know, there was -- and we were all, like -- it was like -- we were -- we all knew each other. it was all kind of like, you know, we knew that what we were bringing was better than what was th and for us it wasn't really -- you know, we didn't think about it in terms of, "oh, gosh, we're starting something new." we just started something saying, if we're going to do this, we're going to do something that's got some quality, is a little more interesting, the music is better, and the colors, it will actually have a film -- a film color palette, you know, where we won't use certain colors.
12:54 am
like you never saw red in "miami vice." and, well, occasionally i saw red but it was for different reasons. [ laughter ] >> seth: so now, you know, that was a long-running show, and then you did "nash bridges," which of course i remember you did with cheech marin and you guys had incredible chemistry. i had no idea, and maybe this was better known at the time, that hunter s. thompson was sort of behind the creation of this show with you. >> yeah, hunter was my neighbor in aspen and gratefully i was just out of mortar range >> seth: i was going to say, he does not sound like a great neighbor >> he -- actually, he was a fabulous neighbor. whenever i was out of town, you wouldn't know this about hunter, but he was -- he loved animals and if i had a sick animal, he would -- and i was out of town - he would come over and sleep in the stall with my animal, or in, you know, wherever they were and, you know, he'd bring a few animals of his own for company
12:55 am
and -- but no, he was a fabulous friend we were very, very close friends for many, many years and one time we were sitting around over at his house, and probably some illegal substances were around. and we -- i said, "listen, i have this --" oh, he was complaining about how he didn't have any money i said, "well, look, i got this commitment on cbs. you know, 22 episodes. i said, "let's just come up with something. we did come up with something. it was terrible. but -- but he was there. he was in the room so -- so he got -- he got to get a royalty. and we -- i took the germ of the idea that hunter and i did, and we turned it into "nash bridges. >> seth: that's fantastic. what a fascinating neighbor to have i have more to ask you we'll be right back with more from don johnson after this. ♪

you want to know your problem? >> oh, no thank you. >> you're a pushover every couple's got one it's balanced out by the tough one. so, with cori gone, you've got no shot at saying no >> i'm no pushover technically she was the bad cop, and i was the very well liked cop. >> you know how my dad got to us sleep? held us down that's it, just held us down until we stopped squirming >> that's maybe assault. >> no, squirming is good tires you out. we slept like angels >> well, angels are technically dead, so >> seth: welcome back to "late night. we're here with don johnson. kenan thompson is both one of the warmest people you could ever hope to work with, but i also always found it frustrating as well. the guy never misses every take, he is just pitch perfect. and you watch this year what he's doing at "snl," he's filming with you all week, he's coming back to "snl" without rehearsal, nailing it there. are you as impressed with kenan as i am?
1:01 am
>> truly this is not just, you know, actor gush stuff i -- you know, this is -- doing a show like this is not -- let's just face it it's not what you would immediately expect don johnson to be doing. and -- and it was a little bit of a risk that, you know, me coming in and taking on this kind of a part and stuff and frankly, kenan is such a pro that he just -- you know, i -- he basically just catches me and says, "oh, no, you good. you know keep it going. and i think i've actually developed a kind of a -- kind of a thing here, you know and it's joyful, joyful, joyful to come into work every day and laugh, and we laugh. and i -- somehow i got kenan's funny bone and chris redd too, for some odd reason and, maybe it's just 'cause i'm the crazy white guy. [ laughter ] i don't know
1:02 am
>> seth: it's nice it's nice to know that still has some currency, to be a crazy white guy. >> yeah, well, it's about the only thing we really can own [ light laughter ] >> seth: so let me tell -- ask you this because, you also have incredible chemistry, last year, for my money, the best show -- i guess now it's two years ago -- again, same thing as you, corona's mushed my brain but you and regina king were so good together in "watchmen." that must have been an incredible thing to be a part of >> it really was you know, the funny thing about "watchmen" is that damon lindelof, who conceived the -- who took the original source material of "watchmen" and then -- and made this masterpiece, basically he wrote me the most gushing, loving letter that you could ever get and of course, if you want an actor do anything, you just send him a letter that's like this, and telling him, you know, he's basically the greatest thing
1:03 am
since sliced bread, and we'll do anything and so -- so -- and he -- by the way, he -- i think i gave him one of his first jobs, if not his first job. he was in on my writing staff. and he asked me if i'd come and do him a favor, and i said, "yeah, i'd be, you know -- let me read it." i read it, and he wouldn't tell me anything more about it. i had no idea i was a white supremacist. i had no idea that my grandfather was a white supremacist. so, i mean, that was -- that was a surprise to all of us. and -- so anyway, yeah i went down there, and kind of simultaneously i was shooting "knives out" with daniel craig and that whole great cast up there in boston. so, i was going back and forth between boston and atlanta it was -- it was -- it was a very fertile time, seth. >> seth: that's nice it's nice that you had your fertile time right before all of us had to stop doing anything. >> yeah. >> seth: that's good that's good timing you -- you talk about how, you know, sometimes a little sweet talking is helpful for actors.
1:04 am
you were so great in "django unchained," quentin tarantino movie. and i heard tell that he -- he might have been, sort of, a bigger fan of your work and more knowledgeable of it than even you were >> oh. well, he's more knowledgeable of everyone's work. >> seth: right >> because quentin is a -- is a walking film historian and before the -- before i got the part i was -- we were at one of these joints in l.a. somewhere, you know, for an after party of some sort and he walked up to me and he said, "you know what, i just -- you know what i just loved you in, i -- i just loved you in this movie that you did. and i said, "you know, that's great. but i didn't do that movie." he said, "oh, yes you did that movie. i said, "no, no. i've never heard of the movie, i don't know the movie i haven't been in the movie. he said, "oh, no." and he started to name -- he started to tell me the story of the movie and named the people that were in the movie and the dp and the director. and i went, "oh, yeah, i was in that."
1:05 am
[ laughter ] >> seth: that's fantastic. >> it was -- it was absurd you know, i mean, i forgot, you know >> seth: yeah, well, that just speaks to the breadth of your career you've got a couple in there that -- that you didn't even remember [ laughter ] >> there's a few of them i haven't even seen. >> seth: your daughter dakota is obviously an accomplished actor in her own right - >> who is that >> seth: dakota, we'll send you clips. >> oh, yeah. >> seth: she's been on this show >> oh, the movie star dakota >> seth: yeah, yeah, yeah. she -- let me just say, such a fantastic talk show guest. we always love having her here she is just unique and wonderful. but i wonder, does she come to you, you know, at this point in her career and ask for advice? or is that something that happened decades ago >> that bus left >> seth: yeah. >> that bus left she doesn't need any advice from me i mean, she -- you know, the funny thing about her, is we have a rule in the family that, you know, if you stay in school,
1:06 am
you get to stay on the payroll you know, i say if you go to college, you get to stay on the payroll. and when -- towards the end of high school i went to her and i said, "so do you want to go visit some colleges, or something like that. and she went, "oh, no, i'm not going to college." i went, "okay. well um -- you know what that means i mean, you won't be on the payroll anymore. and how are you going to manage?" she says, "don't you worry about it." [ laughter ] and -- and i said -- and i said, "oh, okay, well, what do you got in mind? she said, "just" - three weeks later she had nailed down that part in david fincher's "the social network," and the rest is, shall we say, cinema history so no, she doesn't really call me for advice. she -- she -- she calls me on -- to say that, "gosh, i would see you but i've got three pictures that i'm shooting at the same time."
1:07 am
>> seth: well, i think we all hope one day our kids are successful enough to not have time to call us. >> she's gainfully employed, and seth, that's a great day >> seth: that's all you can ask for. i look forward to that day myself hey, don this has been an absolute delight talking to you. it's equally delightful seeing you in "kenan" do your thing thanks so much for making time for us today >> oh, man it was a joy for me to be here thank you so much. >> seth: "kenan" airs tuesday nights here on nbc we'll be right back with christina hendricks. ♪ ♪ ♪i've got the brains you've got the looks♪ ♪let's make lots of money♪ ♪you've got the brawn♪ ♪i've got the brains♪ ♪let's make lots of♪ ♪uh uh uh♪ ♪oohhh there's a lot of opportunities♪

you guys have such a nice cast >> thank you so much yeah, we have a really good time i'm pretty in love with those ladies >> seth: for those who are falling behind, you guys play three mothers who are on a crime spree. and i'm wondering how real-life mothers respond to the show. do you get good feedback [ light laughter ] >> you know -- well, we're all sort of in a bubble now. i don't know if anyone watches the show because i'm in my quarantine bubble, or i'm at work but early on, i think a lot of moms would come up to us and be like, "you guys, it's all about women empowerment. and "you guys are so amazing." and "you go, girl! and i was like, "okay, but it's -- we are robbing grocery stores and stuff." like, i don't want to encourage this kind of behavior. but i do think there's an element of fantasy that people really grabbed on to and really liked. >> seth: one of the things about the show, that i think is so wonderful, is its very funny, but it also has this plot. and this story that is built over seasons
1:16 am
now because of covid, i imagine you have to shoot a little bit out of order in order to maximize time and minimize risk. so is it harder for you guys having to shoot out of order >> yeah. i mean, what a lot of people don't know about television work is you shoot one episode at a time and you usually have about eight or nine days to shoot that and this year, because you had to make sure that you had sanitized locations, and everything had to be so protected. um, so we shot our first eight episodes all together. which this tv show is such a winding storyline, scheming, crazy thing. so to shoot eight episodes at once, you show up in the morning and be like, "okay, wait so, i was where? and the money's where? and who has it now?" and we had these little sort of, what we'd call bibles, to sort of check-in and say, "okay, i'm on episode eight, but we shot
1:17 am
episode one this morning." and it was really extraordinary. so i'm wondering if the audience is going to see how difficult and crazy it was uh, hopefully we pulled it off but it was a mind-bender, to be honest it was really wild >> seth: i'm sure you pulled it off. i also want to give you credit -- you were an early mask adopter. not just early in covid. this is just early in life here's a picture of you. how old are you in this photo, christina, and why are you wearing that mask? >> i think -- well, the reason i'm wearing the mask is because mount st. helens erupted, and i lived in portland, oregon. and we could see it from our front porch, and the ash was pouring on our house what was that, 1980? >> seth: uh-huh. >> and what is amazing is my brother sent me this photo, and i hadn't seen it since i was little and i started zooming in on it and i said, "what the heck is on my face? that is not the masks of 2021. >> seth: right
1:18 am
>> is that an old pocket i feel like my mom maybe cut a pocket out of her pants, and just taped it on my face with masking tape like it's the jankiest looking -- >> seth: it is not >> kudos to my mom for creativity, you know >> seth: yeah. it is janky looking, but at least it does cover nose and mouth. and i've seen a lot worse in 2021. all things being equal, it does the part that is most important. >> but how much do you think that tape stuck to my face like, did i just have like a tape rash? >> seth: i do -- it does seem like your mom is pretty useful, and makes the most of a bad situation. because she then used the ash -- this is actual ash from mount st. helens that she used - >> the little blond one is me, and that's my mom. my mom made us all those costumes for the portland rose festival parade. and the theme that year was the
1:19 am
first rose festival ever so she took the mount st. helens ash, and rubbed it all over us and made us costumes out of old chamois, and we put that little papier-mache dinosaur in a >> seth: it's amazing. and just -- i think you guys -- obviously, people are losing their minds as they see you. everybody's just leaped to their feet as you guys came by with your dinosaur. >> you know, what a good mom is that let us get to be in a parade it was really exciting >> seth: um, i want to ask about this you have a collection of art, one might say -- of curiosities. this is something you collect. these are -- this is a choice you made this is something you don't have to have in your house. you went out of your house you found it, and then you brought it back to your house. which are -- i guess the best way anyone could describe them is terrifying doll heads is that accurate
1:20 am
>> what are you talking about, seth >> seth: no, we don't want to see it - oh my god. oh, i hope a new vaccine gets approved so nbc news cuts in [ laughter ] >> actually, these are all gifts from friends this year, which is even weirder because they all came from different people who seemed to think that this was the appropriate gift for me this year and it was, i love them. i -- you know, i'm a goth kid. so, it still lives within me including the pottery that i enjoy. so, i got a very, very interesting selection this year. >> seth: i also, again, obviously because you're working, and you're working around a lot of people, much like we do here, you're getting a covid test every day and you are using your covid tests as art >> well, i think, like my mother, i'm very crafty. and i get about eight tests a week and they come out in an envelope with a paper with your negative results on it. and i have a stack building and building and building. and my first thought was, i have to papier-mache something with this
1:21 am
so, i'm saving it up i'm coming up -- if you've got any good ideas, let me know. i feel this is a time we're going to remember forever. so why not make an art piece to remember it, you know? >> seth: look, i think a terrifying severed doll head papier-mached with negative covid results -- >> that's it that's it. that's it, thank you >> seth: i think that -- when i picture that, it is what i want to think of when i think of how terrible the last 12 months have been >> yeah. it might be a good representation, actually because it'll be freaky and -- >> seth: yes >> -- it'll fit in with the other dolls. yeah, that's a good idea >> seth: hey, congratulations on the show thanks so much for being here. it's always a delight to see you. >> thanks, seth. nice to see you too. thanks for having me >> seth: of course the fourth season of "good girls" airs sunday nights at 10:00 on nbc we'll be right back with music from fruit bats. ♪

♪ >> seth: welcome back to "late night," everybody. i did not sleep well last night because i watched the new episode of "secret tiny whispers" and i was just tossing and turning all night thinking about it it's one of those shows you just can't get out of your head once you see it i know you haven't caught up shoemaker, it is, hoo, so good you can stream it. and i'm falling in love with the actor who plays the husband on the show, joel edgerton. it's not to be confused with joel edgerton. it's spelled the same but a hard "d" and "g." joel edgerton. and also, they're both australian, which makes it more confusing. the one thing i'll say, joel edgerton, who we love, he's
1:28 am
been here a bunch. fantastic guy. and he's such a good actor because when he plays americans, there is nothing of his australian accent. where as joel edgerton, there is -- and i don't want to be critical because he's so good on the show, but there's a slight tell which is every time he hears about a new murder, he says, "crikey! [ laughter ] which takes me out of it a little i don't want to, like -- and he must do it every take because why would they keep it in? so this week, and we talked about they have identical twins, and they found out one of them is not hers. and detective delgado suspects that one of them is the murderer and lis, the mom, basically explains to him, it can't be every night there was a murder the boys were home they were here and then packer, the husband,
1:29 am
out they always heard both and you just realize, oh, that's a thing twins can do because they have the same voice so basically i think what happened would be, like for example, say just say, "hey, where's your twin brother? >> hey, where's your twin brother? >> seth: "ugh, let me get him. and it would be like, "hey, dad wants you. "uh, i'm busy right now. "okay, you don't have to yell at me." "i'm not yelling, it's my voice. and then you'd be like, "that was two of them.
