tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC April 5, 2021 11:35pm-12:37am PDT
for all of us here, >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight -- david alan grier, topher grace and music from all time low. and now jimmy kimmel! >> jimmy: hi, everyone. welcome. i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thanks for -- thanks for everything. i hope your weekend was good. our weekend really ended with a bang. did you feel the earthquake, guillermo? >> no, i did not feel it. >> jimmy: you didn't feel it at all? >> guillermo: no, i was asleep. >> jimmy: we got a nice little jolt early this morning. this is interesting. when we went to bed, it was april 4th -- 4/4. the earthquake happened at 4:44:00 a. 4:44:00 a.m. and it was measured at 4 on the richter scale.
that has to mean something, right? could this be how the four horsemen of the apocalypse show up? the good news is my precious moments figurines are fine. no damage. now owe, they always say you should have a plan for when the earthquake hurts. turns out my plan is to wake up, grab my phone, look at twitter and put it down. that's my plan. earthquakes really are the only thing twitter is good for. there were no reports of significant damage, though they did have to close the etch-a-sketch museum. that was supposed to open today. everything was just ruined. i have to say, after 13 months of worrying about inhaling a deadly virus, it was kind of nice to worry about the earth opening up and swallowing us for a chage. i was back to sleep within six minutes of the earthquake. i was asleep until our 3-year-old ran into the room at 6:20 saying, "did the easter bunny hide more stuff?" no, he did not. yesterday, as i'm sure you know from the instagram posts, was easter. it was my pastel pink shirt's time to shine!
every year it comes out and then goes right back in. we mixed it up this year. instead of easter eggs, we had the kids go on the cvs website and hunt for the vaccine. that was fun. we did have an easter egg hunt. we hid 24 eggs in the house and once we got 24 in the basket, we were okay, that's it, kids. that's all the eggs. and the kids were like, "how do you know?" "uh, we just know. this is the kind of thing we know." the easter bunny has a much weaker back story, by the way, much weaker than santa claus. we had to make up a lot of details on the spot -- about where he lives, what his motivation is. we told them he lives in florida and hates chickens. is why he gathers the eggs. yesterday, my wife tried to explain the meaning of easter to our daughter who is six. she wanted to know what was going on, so molly said, "well, jesus died." and jane goes "oh, no!" it was news to her.
she said don't worry, he rose from the dead, which is a lot for a child to digest. so we gave her a handful of jelly beans and she seemed okay. sometimes i remember that jesus only lived to be 33-years old. think about that. this would be like zac efron rising again! 33. you understand? >> guillermo: yeah. >> jimmy: a lot of -- a lot of -- [ laughter ] a lot of churches held services on zoom again this year. these virtual services which brings up an interesting theoretical and theological question. can god hear your prayers if you're muted? i say no. i don't think he can. the white house easter egg roll was virtual this year because of covid, and also because of the risk of the bidens' dog major ripping some toddler's arm off. "he's just playful!" the white house made special eggs for easter featuring the president's dogs, champ and
major, who, even on the egg, it looks like major is making a mess. president and mrs. biden offered their well-wishes for the holiday via twitter. they wrote "from our family to yours, we wish you health, hope, joy and peace. happy easter, everyone!" president obama had wishes, he wrote, "this easter, i hope we can all take some time to reflect on the blessings we enjoy and the hope we have for a brighter future. from our family to yours, have a safe and happy easter." and even the easter dummy himself, donald trump, issued a maga-nanimous statement, he wrote, "happy easter to all, including the radical left crazies who rigged our presidential election and want to destroy our country." he's still got it. he doesn't have twitter, but he's still got it. that message would have been nice over a picture of jesus like this, right? better? i guess we're lucky we even had easter this year, because remember when trump said if biden won the election,there would be no holidays ever again? >> under biden, there will be no
school, no graduations, no weddings, no thanksgiving, no easter, no christmas, no fourth of july, no nothing. >> there will be no school, no graduations, no weddings, no thanksgivings, no easters, no christmases. >> no thanksgiving, no easter, no christmas. >> no thanksgiving, no christmas, no easter. >> there will be no school, no graduations, no weddings, no thanksgiving, no christmas, no fourth of july, no easter, no nothing. >> no christmas, no easter, no fourth of july, and no future. >> jimmy: no future. there will be no future. that's the same thing he wrote in don jr.'s graduation card in high school. kentucky fried chicken little held an easter egg hunt of his own at mar-a-lago yesterday. dandy don jr. was there with his girlfriend karen -- i mean kimberly. and together, they shared a sweet anecdote from the trump family memory book. >> in the trump family, the
easter egg hunt is really competitive. >> it's vicious. >> i remember knock-out, drag-out fights with ivanka especially, back in the day, because i may have, you know, gotten on the security camera system and figured out where they hid the proverbial golden egg. so when she found out what i did, it was -- it was brutal. but you probably expect nothing less. a lot of alpha personalities in there. >> jimmy: even a cute family anecdote makes them sound like the reign of caligula, doesn't it? you know my brother daniel? you have a brother daniel? not anymore. we killed him in the egg hunt. so then, djtj tried to pitch in and give his daughter an easter leg up on the competition. take a look at this. >> chloe, chloe! chloe, chloe!
no, no, no, no. not stealing eggs. >> jimmy: stop the steal! hey, let's watch it again, because it's fascinating. here we go. his daughter snatches an egg from another kid's clutches. so daddy decides, "i like that- i'll throw her another egg to reward her for her cunning and cunning and speed. but then there not only does she fumble the inheritance, she drops all her other eggs, some of which get scooped up by other kids. another accident at the intersection of privilege and ineptitude. i think that might be the perfect metaphor for growing up trump. march madness is almost done. as we tape our show right now, number one seed gonzaga is playing number one seed baylor for the ncaa men's basketball title. so, by the time you see this message, i may already be dead. but gonzaga, as you know, has been the subject of a lot of controversy because they're imaginary. there's no school named gonzaga.
but somehow, they managed to bluff their way into the finals with this crazy last-second buzzer beater against underdog ucla. >> again with the ball in his hands, in the paint, floater. short, got it done. ties them with three. gonzaga has decided to do something. for the win! oh, yes! unbelievable! >> jimmy: the clapping you hear is from usc fans. but i want you -- i want you to listen to what jim nantz said again here. >> for the win, oh, yes, unbelievable! >> unbelievable, unbelievable. one of the most respected names in sports journalism, a five-time sportscaster jim nantz calls gonzaga what? unbelievable. because he doesn't believe they
exist either. look at this. if gonzaga is a real school, why aren't there any students in the arena to see this game? look at this. game after game, win after win in this tournament, look at the stands. there's nobody in them. you mean to tell me there was a final four game and no one showed up for it? could that be because they have no alumni? because no one ever went there? think about this. bottom line, gonzaga isn't faith. why do i keep saying it is? this is the other ports drama that's going on. major league baseball decided not to have the all-star game in atlanta this summer in response to the new law they passed in georgia that tries to discourage people of color from voting. baseball did the right thing and pulled the game. and now the red-hatters are mad at them, including tammy ramirez who released this strongly-worded statement, "baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans,and
now they leave atlanta with their all-star game because they are afraid of the radical lft democrats who do not want voter i.d., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections. boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with free and fair elections. are you listening coke, delta, and all?" now donald trump calling for a boycott of coca-cola is beautiful. he had a diet coke button on his desk at the oval office. the man urinates aspertame, okay? and it's especially funny because with all his complaining about cancel culture, this guy has tried to cancel more culture than anyone, ever. if you listened to trump, you'd have to cancel baseball, coke, delta airlines, viacom-cbs, citigroup, cisco, ups, apple, macy's, univision, hbo, oreo, rolling stone, fox news, starbucks, geico, goodyear, amazon, at&t, the nfl, t-mobile, harley davidson, nike, comcast, and merck. which happens to make propecia,
the drug donald trump takes to slow his balding down. what are the chances donald trump actually gives up diet coke or his bald head medicine? none. but he wants you to. and in fact because -- because it always goes like this. this is something stephen miller tweeted today. "just had a terrific meeting with president -- not president trump." stephen miller is not using propecia, but donald trump is drinking a diet coke hidden behind a phone on his desk. cheer up, republicans, because you can't watch football, baseball, basketball or nascar anymore, but you can still watch donald trump play golf! and drink diet coke. florida congressman matt gaetz is the talk of te town in washington. gaetz is reported to be under investigation by the justice department for potentially sex trafficking a 17-year-old girl. he, of course, claims it's a deep state conspiracy. but here's how you know it's not going well for matt. one of his few defenders,
marjorie taylor greene, aka klan mom, appears to have deleted all her photos with matt gaetz. on twitter. let's put that up again. what a q couple they are. she erased him just like 9/11. gaetz wrote an op-ed for the washington examiner today. he wrote "my personal life is and always has been conducted on my own time and my own dime." in other words, my dad never paid for my sex! i pay for all of it. but this is a weird detail about matt gaetz. not only did he grow up in the house where they filmed "the truman show," his family appears to be so desperate for attention,they have a sign out front letting everyone who passes by know it's the house from "the truman show." and the home of matt gaetz. i bet at least one of those signs comes down very, very soon. one of the stories that has been circulating over the weekend is that gaetz used to brag to colleagues about women he slept with. and he would go around, they say and show people videos of naked
lady friends. and he made no secret of this at all. >> $500. >> will you wear the trump mask? >> i told you, that's a thousand. >> okay. fine. are personal texts from my dad okay? >> no! >> jimmy: he's just proud of himself. he's a proud boy. speaking of monsters, we have a new number one movie in america. "godzilla versus kong" was tops at the box office this weekend it made $30 million, which is a good sign for movies and theaters overall. my kids are very interested in this. the other day, i had to show them the trailer because they want to know what godzilla is, what king kong is. and so this morning, we decided to get them on tape watching it, and here they are with some dvd commentary. jane and billy watching the trailer for "godzilla versus kong." >> mom, something is happening.
i'm scared to watch it. >> i'm scared. >> this looks crazy. >> i see godzilla is coming, i see his tail! >> oh, my gosh. >> it's godzilla. >> is godzilla going to eat kong? >> godzilla is coming. >> and they're all talking about it. >> godzilla! godzilla. >> and everything is -- >> oh, king kong punched him in the face. >> oh, kong threw godzilla in the water. >> his tail, his tail. >> now he blasts his blue lightning. >> blue is my favorite color. >> billy, spider-man is not in this movie, silly. >> what the heck? >> he is fighting. >> i can't reach him from
greatness because i'm built from it. >> it's stupid. >> kong bows to no one. >>. ♪ here we go ♪ >> oh no! >> i don't love godzilla because he's bad. >> "godzilla versus kong" in the theaters. >> jimmy: they're on a roll. why not. we've got a good show for you tonight with topher grace, music from all time low, and we'll be right back with our old pal, david alan grier. so stick around. i'm jayson tatum. check out my subway sub with delicious turkey and crispy bacon. abc's jimmy kimmel brought to you by subway. with my subway sub with tender steak and melty cheese. my sub will help you put points on the board, unlike some other subs. why would you say that, jayson? hey man, i'm just talkin' about subs here. oh c'mon. my sub is gonna throw down on your...

>> yeah. >> jimmy: wow. that worked out well for her then too. >> yes. yeah, i really got back at her. >> jimmy: oh, wow. that's pretty crazy. >> actually, i went to the up-fronts for abc as a page the year before i went to the up-fronts -- i had a weird thing where someone saw me in a high school play and i had never auditioned again and it was for "that '70s show." and the up-fronts again. >> jimmy: the up-fronts is the event where they introduce all the new shows to the advertiser. >> which you host. >> jimmy: i'm a part of almost every year. and so you were there working as an intern? >> yeah. and my only memory is i met michael j. fox, which is amazing in "spin city" and greg from dharma and greg yelled at me because his coffee wasn't hot enough. >> jimmy: he did? what? >> and then the next year i was at the up-front, the fox up-fronts for "that '70s show" and some kid was like is that coffee hot enough, sir? i was like yes! like you are enough. >> jimmy: can i tell you
something? i just head this weird memory. laura prepon, who was your castmate was on that show when it first came out. and she was at the up-front too. and i happened to be standing near the desk at the hotel, and she looked at me and she said "do you work for fox?" and at the time i was on fox sports. and i yes, i do. "they do not have my room right. will you handle this for me?" and i said i'll get right on that. you just go sit over there. i'll take care of it. >> jimmy: did you take care of it? >> no, i left. i never took care of anything. of course not. what can i take care of. >> if all of you new laura, that sounds about right. >> jimmy: this show is very funny. the idea of the show is three siblings very different financial situations. >> yes. one is kind of struggling to get by. i'm kind of playing the brother who is middle class. and then there is a brother, our
younger brother who is not only in the 1%, he just bought his house from matt damon. your archnemesis. >> jimmy: yeah, absolutely. he bought the house from matt damon. >> yeah. >> jimmy: and this is like a big deal in the family. >> this is like a running gag on our show, but also i thought how great that i'm coming to do the show. >> jimmy: does matt damon know that you bought his house on the show? >> well, yeah, we had to clear a clip from "we bought a zoo" for this show. >> jimmy: oh, no, that's not good omen for the show. >> i know. i know you hate him so much. >> jimmy: yeah, who doesn't? really. >> but he actually was wonderful about it. and i think his people, big star like that he's got so many people around him kind of said oh, you can't get in touch with him. he is off shooting a film in ireland or something. and then that afternoon he called and said we could use it. it was really nice of him. >> jimmy: because he has nothing to do, right? because nobody --
>> i have a great matt damon house story with you in it, which is, you know, we all assume these late night -- these are all the writer, right? >> jimmy: some of them are, yes. two of them. >> late night hosts have these great writers and molly is doing all of it, right. i was always wondering how sharp really are you in person. and we happened -- i know he's your enemy, but you happened to be at a baby shower that we went to. >> jimmy: i was told it was a going away party. >> we both -- we had a mutual friend who was having their baby shower at matt's house. >> jimmy: right. >> and i was sitting next to you. i think you only told me this joke and i thought it was the funniest thing i ever heard. matt gave a speech where he said we're so glad you were born to this baby. and we were sitting there listening to him. it's really a wonderful day you were born. and you leaned over to me and said "god, he's got to work born
into everything." >> jimmy: that is true. he is very needy. he is very desperate. and i think he is working as an extra on "marvel" movies now. it's very sat. how long since "70s show" went off the air? >> oh, i think it was 15 years. >> jimmy: 15 years? holy cow. are you looking to get become on tv? >> you know, i'm always open to stuff that's really well written like this show, but no, it wasn't something i was looking to do. and then i had done ""blackklansman" and i went from playing someone like david duke to playing evil tech wizard. and suddenly i was getting only scripps like neo-nazis. >> jimmy: the grand wizard to the tech wizard. >> i was thinking maybe i went a little too far in that 70s show. it was not my intention. i loved doing "that '70s show." i wanted to try lots of things. maybe i went a little too far in one direction. i was open to doing this.
it's as much fun as it looks like. >> jimmy: isn't that funny how you play a couple of things convincingly, and you know who would be great white supremacist? topher grace. >> my mom is thrilled about it. >> jimmy: what parent wouldn't be? well, i'm excited about this show. it looks very funny. and we need -- you know, we need shows like this here at abc. and i think you're going to be very happy here, because i think it's like six years in you get like a 10% discount to disneyland. there are really a lot of perks that go along with being a cast member as you would be known. topher grace "home economics" premieres wednesday night 8:00 p.m. here on abc. we'll be back with all time low. ♪ ♪ tay keith ♪ and there you have it: mcdonald's new crispy chicken sandwich. from the makers of the world's most-stolen fries. the juicy chicken sandwich... from the place that offers extra napkins for a reason. the tender chicken sandwich...
