tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC February 11, 2016 12:37am-1:38am PST
♪ [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- ryan reynolds -- from "scandal," actress katie lowes -- music from "wynonna and the big noise." featuring the 8g band with jaleel bunton. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers! [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening! i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everyone doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] fantastic to hear. let's get to the news. the new hampshire primary was last night, and i guess i'm not surprised as the state whose motto is "live free or die," voted heavily for "live free and die."
[ laughter ] bernie sanders beat hillary clinton last night. new hampshire and nearly every voter demographic including older white voters, younger white voters, and that's all they have in new hampshire. [ laughter and applause ] following his victory in new hampshire, bernie sanders has become the first jewish candidate in u.s. history to win a primary. afterwards, bernie held a press conference where he answered questions with a question. [ laughter ] he might not like it, but there's a lot of jewish people at home right now losing it. [ laughter ] according to google, ben carson was the least searched for republican candidate during yesterday's new hampshire's primary, mostly because he's standing right where we left him. [ laughter and applause ] he's there. you don't have to search for him. he's still there. before officially dropping out of the race, chris christie told reporters he wanted to go home
to take a deep breath after his 6th place finish in new hampshire. i guess he momentarily forgot that home is new jersey. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] take a breath in new hampshire, then go home. australian wildlife officials, this week, discovered a rare albino turtle making its way out of its mother's nest. it's being called "jeb." [ laughter and applause ] that little fella. [ laughter ] the popular amc tv series, "the walking dead" has teamed up with hallmark to create a new line of valentine's day cards. it's the perfect way to say, "this relationship died years ago." [ laughter ] people magazine has announced that actor ryan reynolds is the sexiest dad alive. [ cheers ] coming in last, your dad. [ laughter ]
an australian investor is planning to launch a replica of the titanic, called "titanic 2." what could probably go wrong? [ laughter ] coca cola is attempting to trademark the rights to the word "zero" for their line of calorie-free sodas. unfortunately, the word "zero" has already been trademarked by republican candidate jim gilmore. [ light laughter ] well, go out and vote for him if you feel so bad. [ laughter ] looking forward to him having a hot new york. [ laughter ] and finally, a recent study has found that people who say, "i love you" during sex are more likely to feel satisfied afterwards. and least likely to be satisfied are people who say, "what are we, brad?" [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a fantastic show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] he's the star of "deadpool," and the world's sexiest dad. ryan reynolds is in the house tonight. [ cheers and applause ]
also from abc's, "scandal," katie loews is in the house. [ cheers and applause ] and music from a country legend, wynonna judd, is here with her new band "wynonna and the big noise." but, before we get to all of that, as i mentioned, donald trump and bernie sanders were the big winners in last night's new hampshire primary, a result that has thrown the establishment of both parties into chaos. with more on that, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ applause ] so, donald trump and bernie sanders both won as outsiders running against their party's establishment. but let's be clear about something. that does not mean they're the same type of candidate because they're not. sanders is running a serious campaign on issues. trump is a demagogue running entirely on personality who has contradicted himself on almost everything he's ever said. the only things they have in common are they're bad at using combs and they both pronounce it "huge." [ laughter ]
that's it. [ applause ] i mean, just take a look at how different they were in giving credit to their rivals in victory speeches last night. first, here's bernie. >> shortly after the polls closed, secretary clinton called and was very gracious in her congratulations. i thank her for her call, and i congratulate her and her supporters for the vigorous campaign they ran in new hampshire. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: okay, now, here's trump. >> i wanted to congratulate the other candidates, okay? now that i got that over with -- [ laughter ] >> seth: trump thanks other candidates with the same rushed speed and low enthusiasm, i'm guessing he usually reserves for foreplay. "okay, now that i got that over with, can we get to the good stuff?" [ laughter ] one of the most stunning things to come out of new hampshire was the fact that the republican winner barely even had to spend any money to take first place.
jeb bush, for example, spent more than $36 million in new hampshire. trump, meanwhile, has spent so little on his campaign that according to the new york times, he might actually make money on it, thanks to supporters who have bought millions of dollars worth of "make america great again" hats and t-shirts. trump's campaign is basically just an old navy that happens to be running for president. [ laughter ] still, a "make america great again" hat is the cheapest way to say to your friends, "reassess everything you think about me." [ laughter ] but back to jeb, that $36 million might actually have paid off, kind of. >> former florida governor jeb bush with a strong fourth place finish in new hampshire last night. >> bush's campaign is celebrating his fourth place finish last night, calling it a success. >> it looks like you all have reset the race, and for that, i am really grateful. >> seth: stop treating fourth place like a victory. [ laughter ] in horse races, it's not "win place, show and jeb." still, nice to see him smile
again. at least he did better than fifth place finisher marco rubio, who lost his momentum after repeating the same lines verbatim in a disastrous debate performance to cast out on his ability to talk without a script. when the results came in last night, rubio apologized to his supporters saying, "i did not do well on saturday night. that will never happen again." but if rubio's going to stop repeating himself, he's definitely got some work to do. check out this clip from a town hall the day before the primary, as rubio realizes he's once again saying the exact same words over and over again. >> because as you saw, jeanette and i are raising our four children in the 21st century, and we know how hard it's become to instill our values in our kids, instead of the values they try to ram down our throats. in the 21st century, it's become harder than ever to instill in your children, the values you teach in our homes and in our church, instead of the values us they ram down our throats. [ laughter ] >> seth: look at his eyes. that's the moment in the sci-fi movie when the robot finally realizes he's a robot.
[ laughter and applause ] and what about chris christie? chris christie, the rubio slayer -- well, despite derailing rubio at the debate, christie didn't get much of a bounce mostly because it's impossible to make chris christie bounce. [ laughter ] christie finished sixth, and today announced he was suspending his campaign and heading back to new jersey where, based on everything we know about him, i'm assuming he'll be super laid back and chill. who outside of trump, bernie, and a delusional jeb bush had a good night last night? well, there was ohio governor john kasich, who came in second place and who celebrating his strong showing as a victory for positive campaigning. >> kasich taking pride in running a positive campaign. >> there's magic in the air with this campaign. tonight, the light overcame the darkness of negative campaigning. [ cheers ] >> what you heard tonight was very chicken soup for the soul. >> seth: that's right. john kasich is basically the deepak chopra of the presidential campaign. [ laughter ]
"i'm running for president because i believe we must all reconnect with our bliss and become one with the universe. namaste." [ laughter ] also, light didn't beat darkness. darkness won 34-15. [ laughter ] the super bowl was closer, and the super bowl wasn't that close. the republican campaign has changed considerably after last night. as for the democrats, bernie sanders must now demonstrate that he can perform well in states with more diverse electorates like south carolina, which is why he met with, today, with the reverend al sharpton. but for anyone who claims bernie's constituency is too white, how do you explain this bernie supporter who just couldn't help but his dance on after the results were announced? ♪ [ laughter ] how can you say bernie's face is too white? look at that cool dude. [ laughter ] i will say, i'm from new hampshire, and in new hampshire, that guy does technically qualifies as street. [ laughter ] although it turns out, that guy wasn't alone. bernie did some celebrating of his own by playing a little
hoops, a fact that even won over fox news. >> this is bernie sanders, a short time ago, beneath the campaign headquarters as the victory party. he's playing hoops with his two adult sons and 7 grandkids. >> he's pretty good. >> this is the 74-year-old vermont senator. >> look at him. >> getting ready to give a big victory speech tonight. he's making -- he's making some shots there. >> is this, like, some kind of a joke? he's making every single one. >> he's from brooklyn. [ laughter ] >> seth: bernie sanders hates the banks, but he loves the bank shots. [ laughter and applause ] >> you know, i have to say, it's fun to hear fox news be nice to a democrat. let's hear what else he had to say. >> he's better than president obama on the basketball court. >> seth: he's not better at than barack obama at basketball. he's a 74-year-old man that nobody is guarding. [ laughter ] but i do love you fox news. you know how to troll. this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ]

[ cheers and applause ] also sitting in tonight and all this week on drums, from tv on the radio, jaleel bunton is here. [ cheers and applause ] you can check out jaleel every monday every night at union pool in brooklyn with the love choir. thank you so much for being here, jaleel. >> very happy to. >> seth: such a pleasure. [ cheers and applause ] our first guest is a talented actor you know from films like "woman in gold," "the proposal," and "just friends." his new movie, "deadpool," opens in theaters and imax everywhere this friday. let's take a look. ♪ >> now, you've grown back body parts now, wade. >> when i'm finished, they will have to grow back you. >> good one. yep. that's a good one. let's dance. and by dance, i mean, let's try to kill each other. [ yelling ] [ grunting ] [ clanging ] ♪ [ heavy breathing ] >> fine, sit. >> oh, sounds like your last
saturday night. [ laughter ] >> seth: please welcome to the show, ryan reynolds. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: how are you, my friend? >> i'm pretty good. >> seth: this is -- >> this is good. >> seth: this is very exciting. this film, as a fan of comic books -- >> yeah. >> seth: as a fan of action films, deadpool is sort of deep canon character. not -- >> yeah. >> seth: and you have sort of pulled this character out and put him on screen. and he's very different than any other superhero i've movie i've ever seen. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> seth: because this is a hard 'r.' >> it's not -- >> seth: it's not close to -- >> it's not [ bleep ] around, seth. >> seth: it really isn't. [ laughter ] >> no. >> seth: it really isn't. >> it really isn't. >> seth: and what i'm very happy about, cause in a lot superhero movies no one ever dies. >> oh yeah. >> seth: right away in this movie. >> yeah. >> seth: you kill tons of people. >> yeah.
there's -- he's profane, violent and extremely funny, and those are the things that i loved about this character from the get go. >> seth: yeah. >> from the first time i ever read about him. >> seth: here's my description of it. >> yeah. >> seth: tell me if these work. >> i love it. >> seth: i feel like it's "van wilder" meets "green lantern." that's like finally, both of them. >> wow. [ laughter ] okay, sort of good, sort of awful. >> seth: yeah, exactly. >> you know? >> seth: but i feel like van wilder elevates the green lantern. >> the van wilder, yeah. i think, yeah, i sort of look at it like if "who framed roger rabbit" like had sex with "heat." >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] >> and then -- and then somehow ended up on celluloid. >> seth: there you go. >> yeah. i think that's kind of -- yeah. >> seth: and as we can see from the clip, a character that will address the camera. >> yeah. >> seth: which is a really fun thing as well. >> yeah. yeah, he sort of he breaks the fourth wall. it's very meta, the movie. he knows he's in a comic book. i mean, he makes jokes about ryan reynolds. i mean, he's like, you know, it's a totally different brand of x-men. >> seth: yeah. >> you know, basically that's what it is. i mean, he lives in the x-men universe. >> seth: and your fans, the fans of this character i should say, are sort a lot -- they have a lot to take credit for as far as bringing this to the screen. >> oh, yeah. for 11 years i've been trying to
get this film made, since 2004. the first "deadpool" comic i ever read had a panel in it and it said -- somebody asked deadpool what he looks like under the mask and he said, "i look like a cross between ryan reynolds and a shar pei." [ laughter ] and i knew at that moment, i was like, "one day i will play this guy." [ laughter ] >> seth: that's fantastic. >> and so i've been trying to get it made since then. since 2004, 2005 and to no avail. and then we made some -- a little bit of test footage. that test footage leaked on the internet about two years ago and when that happened, the fans of "deadpool" just they overwhelmed the studio. and the studio was just literally forced to say yes. so, pretty awesome. >> seth: that's such a great story. >> can't make this up. >> seth: it's not a story that happens often where fans get what they want. >> never. never ever ever. >> seth: and i think they're gonna be very happy with the film. >> yeah. that's how "the avengers" happened. that whole thing. >> seth: no it's not. >> no, no. >> seth: "the avengers" were not. >> pretty much, no. >> seth: you also have done some fantastic things. you mentioned footage leaking on the internet. >> yeah. >> seth: you did some great promotion. you went out on halloween and you talked, in your deadpool suit, and you talked to some kids. >> oh yeah. i've done -- i've never done a film where the marketing was such an extension of the actual film. on the last the day of shooting
i left with a suit cause i waited ten years to do the movie, so i'm taking a [ bleep ] suit. [ laughter ] >> seth: right. >> right. >> seth: so you own the suit now. >> yeah. it's apparently like a big no-no. >> seth: yeah, i bet. >> like ben affleck tried to leave with the suit and they tasered him. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. you can't. >> you can't leave with the bat suit. so i don't know what happened. somehow i got the suit. but i've actually worn it more after the fact than i ever wore it in the movie. [ laughter ] not just for sexy sexy time. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> but also for promotion of the film. >> seth: i think it's great that you took it home. not that you're at risk of this, but at some point you get older and you are going to have to say in current shape because nothing will be worse than a fat deadpool. [ laughter ] >> no, no. oh, yeah. fatpool. >> seth: yeah, fatpool. >> "fatpool" is "deadpool 12", which we're scheduled for release. right after "deadpool: colonoscopy." [ laughter ] >> seth: there you go. >> rated "r!" >> seth: oh, i can't wait for that. >> yeah, it's gonna be awesome. >> seth: so, you went out, you put on the suit and you went out on halloween. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: and you talked to some kids. you tried to -- >> i did some recruitment, you know? >> seth: you tried to recruit a team. >> i tried to recruit some kids. try to pull them over to the dark side. >> seth: let's take a look real quick. >> yeah. >> what the hell's your name? ray-bans come here.
all right, stevie wonder, what's your superpower? >> shoot lasers eyes out of my eyes. >> that's the stupidest [ bleep ] superpower i've ever heard. [ laughter ] you're not on the team. i'm kidding, you're on the team. you're not on the team. get back over there and sit down. you? >> wolverine. >> i like it. i like it. you hit puberty early and hard. storm, come here. what's your superpower. >> to control the weather. >> you can control the weather? >> yep. >> like al roker? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: you made their kid's halloween. >> right? totally. >> seth: so happy. >> totally. >> seth: did you -- is this true? i heard that you found out this movie was officially gonna get made, not because the studio called you, but because you read it online. >> yeah. basically read -- a lot of like people that are celebrities or work in hollywood they usually get dumped, like they find out they've been dumped online. i got engaged to online, pretty much. >> seth: yeah. >> that was it. yeah. i just read that they we were gonna make this movie. they basically gave it a date and then -- but we thought, myself, rhett reese, paul wernick, and tim miller, we're like the core guys that have been developing the script and the movie for the last six years. we all thought we were just
summarily fired. >> seth: and that -- because otherwise they would have called you and told you. >> yeah, they would have maybe called us first and said, you know, are you available. >> seth: right. [ laughter ] >> or something. but no they just gave us a date off the whim. >> seth: that is fantastic. underneath the mask cause you look like yourself in the movie. >> yeah. >> seth: you're in uniform, and there's also some bad stuff happens to you. >> oh, real bad stuff. >> seth: and i wanna just show a photo because i'm very -- i have a question about this. >> yeah. >> seth: so that's you super ugly face. >> yeah. there's not a lot of detail in that but it's pretty -- yeah, it's pretty -- i look kinda like benjamin franklin, the bloodless ghost of benjamin franklin, maybe. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> had sex with radiation. >> seth: yeah. >> and then that was me. >> seth: it's a little -- do you mind me saying this, it's a little testicular? >> it is, yeah. very testicular. [ laughter ] but only the left nut, the right one is much different looking than that. >> seth: yeah, exactly. but i ask this because you have a daughter. a very young daughter. >> i do, yeah. she's a little over one, yeah. >> seth: a little over one. so, she comes to set? >> yeah. >> seth: she came to set on this day. >> yes, exactly. >> seth: and how does a just over one-year-old react to this? >> well, see that face still had
dad's voice. >> seth: oh, yeah, that's not good. >> but she's gonna be reenacting that moment with crude sock puppets to a therapist for the rest of her life. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> she was instant tears. >> seth: really? >> yeah. >> seth: i don't why i'm saying really. >> yeah. like come on. >> seth: like does she not understand hollywood. >> i'm sorry. please, come on! [ laughter ] she saw it. for like three days she was shy around me after that. i might have actually caused real damage. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] well, you know what, it's a waiting game to find out. >> it's the first of many. yeah. >> seth: it's the first. now, your director has said, because again, compared to a batman, a superman, deadpool is not mature. >> no. no. >> seth: he has claimed that you are equally as immature as the character you play. >> oh, i'm the worst. i'm more immature than deadpool. >> seth: where does you immaturity come from? >> i have no idea. >> seth: yeah. >> probably like just an unquenchable thirst for validation. >> seth: oh yeah. that'll do it. [ laughter ] >> i'm think that's a start. >> seth: yeah. >> i don't know. i'm just like -- >> seth: siblings, do you have siblings? >> i have three older brothers. >> seth: oh, that's something. >> i was the youngest, so i was just more of a moving target than a brother. [ laughter ] you know, you had to be smart with your mouth not your fists. so that was kind of it. i mean, on set i was always doing just awful stuff.
>> seth: yeah. >> like deadpool says horrible things in this film, and i'm talking -- at one point i'm talking about the villain and every set has a script supervisor and the script supervisor is really there to remind people of their lines. if you forget a line they just call it out, they'll yell it out to you if you're like sitting on set cause they can just pause for a second. and it's a difficult job. we have susan, who's the sweetest woman in the whole wide world. >> seth: sounds like nice. susan's are always sweet. >> very sweet. yeah. susan's always free on the set. she always wears some sort of amusing hat. and she was back there, and i'm just such -- i just, i remember i was doing a scene and i'm talking about the villain. and i say, "this guy is pure evil." and then i say, "this guy is pure evil." and then i say, "trust me. that" -- and i totally forget the line. but i don't really forget the line. i say, "susan?" and she says, "that wheezing bag of -- [ bleep ] tips has it coming?" [ laughter ] and it's just like -- and i'm doing that the whole movie. >> seth: why you doing susan like that? susan's just trying to live her life.
>> i know, right? just add obscenely immature. >> seth: this i wanna ask cause this -- that's susan. susan, ultimately she's out of your life now. your wife, in your life. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: i wanna talk about some immaturity that i want confirmation from you because my wife is pregnant, we're expecting our first baby. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: i'm excited about that. [ cheers and applause ] a lot of talking about like how you act in the delivery room, you were in the room. >> yeah, yeah. for sure. >> seth: and you decided to play a song. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> seth: what did you play when your wife was in labor? >> i jammed a little marvin gaye's "let's get it on." [ laughter and applause ] yeah. >> seth: how did that go? >> it was like steak knives came out of her eyes. [ laughter ] she's like, "are you [ bleep ] [ bleep ] me right now?" [ laughter ] >> seth: that's not the time for levity. >> yeah. real bad. yeah, yeah. >> seth: yeah. >> but she was a mercenary. i mean she was like i think i just caught her right in the middle of a contraction. she was pretty much making jokes the entire time. >> seth: oh, that's good to hear.
>> yeah, yeah. >> seth: and do you have any -- you've been doing this just over a year. what advice would you give post birth? >> just do the dirty work, man. >> seth: yeah. you got to. >> you got to do the diapers, the middle of the night thing, your wife -- a human being will exit your wife. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> so she's done enough. >> seth: yeah. i guess that's true. >> just change the diapers, do all that stuff. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: it's true. >> yeah. >> seth: she's done enough, she's done more than enough. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> seth: thank you so much. >> thank you so much. >> seth: congrats on the movie. >> thank you. thank you. >> seth: always great to see you. ryan reynolds, everybody.

breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com.
