11:35 pm
dan: we appreciate your time. lee bob >> dicky: from hollywood, it's linebacker live! tonight, billy bob thornton. fred savage. from "the wonder years," elijah "e.j." williams. and music from st. vincent. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: hi there. thank you, thank you. very nice. thanks. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming. [ cheers and applause ] oh, boy. we have so many things to get to, but i want to start tonight with a story that will lift our spirits. our spirits are starting to get a little droopy, so let's give them a lift.
11:36 pm
what we do is go to a surgeon and give them a lift. [ laughter ] there's a new guinness world record from japan -- a pair of sisters, who, at the age of 107, have been crowned the world's oldest living identical twins. there they are -- umeno and komay. aka mary-kate and ashley oldsen. [ laughter ] that's komay, the face of a woman who's pissed she's missing "wheel of fortune" to take this picture. the previous record-holders were also from japan. one of them died in 2000. the other in 2001. at age 108. you know what they died of? it's weird. they both died in skateboarding accidents. [ laughter ] yeah. half-pipe. finally got 'em. you know? but congratulations to umeno and komay. and while we're congratulating our elders on keeping it together, the oldest president in u.s. history was in new york today, addressing the united nations. joe biden is older than the u.n. itself. [ laughter ] that's not a joke, that's true. he's like "i remember when this
11:37 pm
building was a salt water taffy shack!" [ laughter ] all his leader friends from other countries were there -- the fella from down under, big guy, too tall, padre, bucko, slick, they were all present and accounted for. this was biden's first speech to the general assembly since taking office. he told the assembly that u.s. military power should not be the answer to every problem. for that, we have alcohol and weed. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] biden covered a lot of ground in his remarks -- covid, afghanistan, climate change -- he pushed for unity and weighed in on one of the greatest threats facing our world today. >> corn pap was a bad dude and he ran a bunch of bad boys. confronted by three guys and straight razors. those days, remember the
11:38 pm
straight razors, bang them on the curb, put them in the rain barrel, get them rusty? there was a guy named bill wright, used to come down here in the basement where mechanics -- where all the pool is. he cut off six foot of chain, he followed up, you walk out with that chain and you walk to the car and you say, you may cut me, man, but i'm going to wrap this chain around your head. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's right. all right, now who wants to negotiate a trade deal? [ laughter ] in order to be allowed on the general assembly floor, all leaders had to either be vaccinated or test negative for covid, but they didn't have to show proof. they did it on the honor system. and if you can't trust china and russia, who can you trust? [ laughter ] brazilian president jair bolsonaro is famously anti-vaccine. here he is arriving in new york. [ laughter ] [ applause ] president bolsonaro believes the
11:39 pm
vaccine turns people into crocodiles. and bearded ladies too. this astrazeneca has a lot of range, i have to say. some call him the brazilian trump. which brazilian trump, euphemism for when they wax off your orange hair "downstairs." [ laughter and applause ] it was a tough day for fox news. they didn't get hold of anything good to make fun of biden for. this is from yesterday. this is on the so brazen it's hard to believe these words were spoken list. trump's former economic advisor, a party clown named larry kudlow, i'm not sure if this would be considered to be gaslighting, or if there's just a gas leak at his house. >> with an extremely divisive biden, i will tell you, folks, i kind of yearn for the calm, peaceful, orderly, prosperous, america-first, around the globe days of donald trump. just saying.
11:40 pm
>> jimmy: right, right. who can forget those peaceful, prosperous, orderly, and calm days? genghis calm we used to call him. [ applause ] i think memory is the first to go. that's how calm it was. i guess the memory is first to go. we are learning details about the calm, peaceful, orderly, prosperous days of donald trump thanks to a new book by bob woodward and robert costa of "the washington post" that came out today. the book is called "peril." it lays out what went down at the white house in the aftermath of the insurrection on january 6th. there are some bombshell allegations, including a memo outlined by one of trump's lawyers, john eastman. that's john eastman on the left. with the hat on. it takes a lot to make rudy giuliani look like the sane lawyer. [ laughter ] john was able to do that. the book says eastman drew up a six-step plan explaining how mike pence should overturn the results of the election. and the steps went like this.
11:41 pm
step one, vice president pence, presiding over the joint session, opens and begins starting the ballots, starting with alabama. step two -- when he gets to arizona, pence pretends to have a coughing fit and reaches for a glas of water. step three -- while reaching for the glass, pence knocks the ballots onto the floor, saying the words "whoopsie daisy" loudly, so everyone can hear. step four -- as pence is picking up the ballots, he shouts, "hey, what's that over there?!" then kicks ballots from seven key battleground states under the podium. step five -- pence asks everyone to check under their chairs for the ballots, and while they're distracted looking under their chairs, he swallows, he eats all the ballots. [ laughter ] georgia, pennsylvania, wisconsin, all in his stomach now. at this point, no one can find the ballots, so pence explains that he has no choice but to declare trump the winner. step six -- pence bangs his gavel, hops aboard space force one, and is never seen again. [ laughter ] [ applause ]
11:42 pm
for some reason, he refused to go along with this plan. the real memo suggested that pence use the element of surprise. they wanted him to just show up and without warning, overturn the results of the election. at which, i don't know, without asking permission, that seems impossible for mike pence. i mean, look at him. mike pence is a guy who asks if it's okay for him to go to the bathroom when he's alone. [ laughter ] he doesn't do things like that. this guy eastman came up with a hell of an opinion. "the fact is that the constitution assigns this power to the vice president as the ultimate arbiter." right. he's basically arguing that the third base umpire can declare himself the winner of the world series. [ laughter ] meanwhile, does anyone know what melania's up to? i feel like any day now we're going to find out she's engaged to a jonas brother. [ laughter ] the former ceo of amazon and future resident of mars jeff bezos made a big announcement yesterday. bezos is donating a billion dollars to protect 30% of
11:43 pm
earth's land and sea. which sounds like a lot until you realize he's worth $200 billion. why not spend another $3 billion, protect 100% of the earth's land and sea? [ applause ] you'd still have like $196 billion. of course, what he doesn't mention is he's protecting the earth from himself. [ laughter ] is it possible to destroy the planet and save it at the same time? jeff bezos is the only guy who's so rich that when you hear he donated a billion dollars to charity, you're like, "what a cheap bastard." [ laughter and applause ] this wasn't cheap either. here in l.a., the clippers broke ground on their new 1.8 billion dollar stadium in inglewood. they had a party. a band, at this times and the tantrums, were there to celebrate. kawhi leonard in particular really seemed to be digging the music. ♪ ♪
11:44 pm
>> jimmy: yeah. kawhi, as in -- "ka-why am i here?" [ laughter ] clippers fever. catch it! speaking of fever, in vaccine news, johnson & johnson says now getting a second shot -- remember, it was a one-shot deal with johnson & johnson. but if you get the second shot, they say it increases the effectiveness of their vaccine to 94%. that's good news for johnson & johnson. until this point, johnson & johnson was basically the mr. pibb of vaccines. [ laughter ] you're like, all right, i guess. a year ago, we didn't have vaccines. or a plan to get them out there once we did. and so to remind us of how far we've come, every week we look back at what was in the news exactly one year ago. and it's time now for another edition of "this week in covid history." >> this week in covid history, it's late september 2020. school is back. and how's the president doing? >> to fight the china virus, we did an a-plus job.
11:45 pm
a-plus. we take an a-plus. we take an a-plus. >> the magna cum loudmouth. hundreds gather to remember justice ruth bader ginsburg. where potus maximus is greeted by an adoring crowd. [ crowd chanting "vote him out" ] >> a simple wish, one that surely would be honored. for here lies a woman whose legacy cannot -- >> let's take a t-shirt, fill the seat. we're going to fill the seat. a woman would be in first place, yes. >> what a bod. but wait. in 2016, mitch mcconnell blocked obama's nominee because it was an election year. what say you this election year, senator? >> mr. president, the majority leader. >> mwahhhhhhh!
11:46 pm
>> oh, he's a charmer. president trump had news. literally. >> we're not going to lose this, except if they cheat. that's the way i look at it. >> will you commit to making sure there's a peaceful transfer of power after the election? >> we're going to have to see what happens. >> oh, a cliffhanger. will the president of the united states let democracy run its course? we'll find out on the next depressing episode of "this week in covid history." [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we've got a good show for you tonight. fred savage is here. we have music from st. vincent. and we'll be right back with billy bob thornton.

11:56 pm
[ laughter ] >> jimmy: they did. do you keep in touch with those guys? >> oh, yeah, sure. yeah. >> jimmy: do you ever do the rotation? i know club lingerie is not there. but maybe there's a blockbuster or something? [ laughter ] the worst possible reference i could come up with. >> i remember that. >> jimmy: so you guys were hanging out, meeting people. >> yeah. >> jimmy: getting married, getting divorced, doing the whole thing over and over again. >> yeah. >> jimmy: and who made it first? i assume your buddies, were they in show business as well? were they actors? >> most of the guys i hung out with were in acting class or the theater group i belonged to, which was called the west coast ensemble. and we all hung out together. and yeah, i know -- still keep in touch with most of those guys. yeah, i was the first one that broke out, i guess you would say, yeah. >> jimmy: what was the first thing? show or movie that you were in in? >> gosh. i don't know. i did -- i was very excited because i had one scene where i
11:57 pm
played a pawnshop owner on "matlock." >> jimmy: wow. >> i was so excited. because when i was a kid, i used to listen to andy griffith's comedy records where he would do spoofs of cinderella and romeo and juliet and all that stuff. that was the first time i thought, hey, that would be fun to do that, you know? >> jimmy: oh, andy griffith -- that was a big influence then, i guess? >> oh, yeah. yeah, he was. and i watched "the andy griffith show" all the time. so here i'm going to be on "matlock." i went to the set before my scene. he was there. and bob sweeney was directing the episode, who used to direct "the andy griffith show." so i thought i was in tall cotton, as they say, sort of. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and so i went up to him. and i said to him, mr. griffith, i'm playing the pawnshop owner today, i just want to tell you you're the reason i started acting. and he kind of looked at me funny and walked away, i guess he was having a bad day.
11:58 pm
[ laughter ] then you cut to years later. and he called me when i was nominated the first time for an academy award. and he was very nice to me. >> jimmy: wow. >> and so -- then, in '98 i think it was, i directed this movie that nobody ever saw. and he played my father in it. i cast him as my father. and on the set -- by that time we were pals. and i said, do you know, i did an episode of "matlock" one time. and he said, oh, did you? and i said, yeah. he said, which episode was it? and i told him the episode. and he said, oh, i hated that episode. [ laughter ] yeah. so anyway. yeah. >> jimmy: well, never meet your idols, i guess. >> he was very sweet. he was very good to me. >> jimmy: yeah. did you spend a lot of time with him? >> oh, yeah.
11:59 pm
no, i knew him very well, and don knots, i knew them both very well. >> jimmy: don knotts as well, oh. >> that's the thing about it. when you've been in this business a long time, you eventually meet everybody, you meet people you never dreamed you would, it's pretty great. >> jimmy: what was don knotts >> sweet guy, you know? yeah. >> jimmy: funny in real life? >> you know -- no. he was kind of serious. >> jimmy: uh-huh? >> yeah he was more -- andy would be more funny than don. and don was the funny one on the show. >> jimmy: right, yeah, yeah. andy was the straight guy. >> don was really nice. he had some sort of eye disorder, don. >> jimmy: oh. >> one night his girlfriend brought him to meet me at a restaurant over in bearington in brentwood there. i'd been told that don can't really see anymore. and so -- i don't know why you compensate for one thing with another. but we were sitting in this dark booth in this italian
12:00 am
restaurant. i would sit really, really close to him, like that close to his nose, and shout at him. [ laughter ] he's not deaf, he's blind, but still. it's like -- so don, remember that episode -- whatever. [ laughter ] one way or the other, she had asked me to -- if i could drive him home afterwards. >> jimmy: oh, wow. >> so i'm driving don knots home. this is barney fife in my car. >> jimmy: sure. >> driving him home, we cross santa monica boulevard. he lived in this big condo building there. and so i think he can't see anything. and i said, don, just let me know what the address is, he goes, yeah, you see that third building down on the left? [ laughter ] so he could see way better than i thought. so i realized all night long, he thinks i'm a lunatic because i'm right in his face.
