[ laughter ] a little awkward. man, this oil spill is still a total mess. the coast guard is now saying that 20 of these things called tar balls have been found off the florida keys. they're not sure if the tar balls are from the gulf coast spill. seriously?

[ laughter ] "yeah, it is." i can't believe this story. have you heard about this guy, richard blumenthal? he's a democratic candidate for senate in connecticut. it turns out he actually lied about serving in vietnam.

[ laughter ] and that was a lot of attention. a lot of attention for him. yeah, that's right, richard blumenthal lied about serving in vietnam in several speeches. which i guess explains why his descriptions of the war sounded like wikipedia entries. [ light laughter ] he's like, "it was hard fighting with an annual rainfall of 93.6 inches." [ laughter ] "can you imagine, in a country that's the largest producer of cashew nuts in the world? i mean, that's --" [ laughter ] this is just insane. officials in naples, italy, believe that local pizza makers are digging up coffins from a cemetery and using the wood to heat up their ovens.

[ laughter ] "why don't you just go -- i'll catch up with you on that walk." listen to this. iraq security forces say they have detained an al qaeda member suspected of planning an attack on the world cup in south africa next month. the man has already admitted that terror and destruction was his ultimate gooooaaa[ laughter ]! [ laughter ] aviation officials in europe announce new rules that will allow planes to fly through the volcanic ash if they get special approval. yeah, i'd love to hear the pilot on one of those flights.

[ laughter ] i think it's vgi? is that what they call it? it's fantastic." finally, this is a true story. a woman in pennsylvania was running away from the cops and decided to hide out in a coffin at a funeral home.

1:10 am
if you're taking an antidepressant and still feel depressed, one option your doctor may consider is adding abilify. abilify treats depression in adults when added to an antidepressant. some people had symptom improvement in as early as one to two weeks after adding abilify. now with the abilify (me+) program, your first two weeks of abilify can be free. abilify is not for everyone. call your doctor if your depression worsens or you have unusual changes in behavior, or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens and young adults. elderly dementia patients taking abilify
1:11 am
have an increased risk of death or stroke. call your doctor if you have high fever, stiff muscles and confusion to address a possible life-threatening condition. or if you have uncontrollable muscle movements, as these could become permanent. high blood sugar has been reported with abilify and medicines like it. in some cases, extreme high blood sugar can lead to coma or death. other risks include decreases in white blood cells, which can be serious, dizziness upon standing, seizures, trouble swallowing, and impaired judgment or motor skills. adding abilify has made a difference for me. [ male announcer ] visit abilifyoffer.com for your free trial offer. and ask your doctor about the risks and benefits of adding abilify.

we got to talk about "lost" here -- i heard this thing that jack -- your character jack was originally going to die in the first episode. >> yeah, there was a -- in a carnation of the script about two weeks before i came in where j.j. abrams and damon lindelof had this idea where they wanted to kill jack in like the second or third act of the pilot. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah and i think they gave it away -- they gave it to friends and family and people that were close to them and the feedback they got was, "you just can't do that. you can't start the show with this guy's eye opening and then kill him in the middle of it. so -- >> jimmy: yeah. >> so -- so, they rewrote it. and i came in and met them a couple weeks later. and that's how it all got started. >> jimmy: you always seem like the guy that -- you knew all the secrets that was going on with "lost" as an actor. as matthew fox. >> i faked a lot of that. >> jimmy: you did? that was a lie? that was a lie. >> i did know -- i had a really great experience with damon lindelof on the show and talking about jack shepherd. and every year, you know, we'd have a phone call before the season started.
1:23 am
and he would give me the arc for the character over the year. in talking about jack, we'd be talking about the show. i did know quite a bit of what was coming. and i've always had this sort of final image of the series. and -- but how we were gonna get there, i didn't know the exact mechanics of that. >> jimmy: do other cast members talk to each other and be like, "what did you hear? am i going to get killed? or am i gonna --" [ light laughter ] >> i think there was a little bit of that -- you know, it was a show where people never really knew what was going to happen -- >> jimmy: next thing you know, you're the smoke monster. you know? what's going on?
