tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC July 16, 2016 12:37am-1:38am EDT
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- anna kendrick, star of "the legend of tarzan", alexander skarsgard, cooking with food network's giada de laurentiis, featuring the 8g band with ray luzier. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers! [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] yeah. great to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. in an interview earlier this morning, donald trump said that he's gotten the worst three weeks of publicity i've ever had in my life. his biggest problem is that he can't get this guy to shut up. [ laughter ]
hundreds of demonstrators showed up in times square today to protest donald trump's meeting with evangelical leaders at a nearby hotel. that's how much those protesters hate donald trump, they're willing to go to times square. [ laughter ] at a meeting with nearly 1,000 evangelical leaders today, donald trump told the attendees that hillary clinton is not worthy of their prayers. although i'm pretty sure hillary's prayers were already answered when trump won the gop nomination. [ laughter ] oh, i'm good. you don't have to answer any more. [ cheers and applause ] a 77-year-old man was recently arrested in mississippi after he allegedly stole three boxes of frozen chicken from a fast food restaurant. oh, come on, things aren't that bad, bernie. [ audience ohs ] "i was hungry! [ light laughter ] i'm not a millionaire or a billionaire! i don't just have chicken money
lying around!" new york's subway this morning suffered an accidental stampede in manhattan after commuters mistakenly thought a man had a gun and dozens panicked and ran for the exits. but luckily he was just masturbating. [ light laughter ] just masturbating. i'm sorry to alarm everyone! and this is where i get off, so i bid you -- [ laughter ] a good day. [ applause ] you guys didn't like that till i had a -- i don't like this at all. oh, that's a pretty good pun. okay. [ laughter ] and finally, video has surfaced that shows eight employees of a chinese bank being spanked. so if you're in a chinese bank and see a guy wearing a mask, don't worry. he's the manager. ladies and gentlemen, we have a
great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] from the new film "mike and dave need wedding dates," one of our favorites, anna kendrick is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] from "the legend of tarzan" alexander skarsgard is here. looking forward to talking to him. [ cheers and applause ] and we'll be cooking up some incredible pasta and making a summer cocktail with food network's giada de laurentiis. [ cheers and applause ] so excited to eat some giada food. before we get to all that, the senate yesterday rejected several gun control proposals that have broad support among voters. now, this is the point at which the nra and the gun lobby would like us to stop talking about this issue and just move on, but we can't keep doing that. and there are some signs, however small, that the politics of this issue may be slowly changing. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ applause ] >> seth: last week we told you about the 15-hour democratic filibuster to push for gun control. it had everything. from roving stenographers with
typewriters strapped to their chests, to senators who literally could not leave the floor for a bathroom break for 15 hours. how do you even prepare for that? go over your notes and then eat a huge block of cheddar cheese? [ laughter ] i can't even make it through an "avengers" movie without having to pee like four times. but the filibuster worked, and republicans agreed to allow several gun control proposals to come up for a vote. and finally, common sense prevailed. the senate responded to the national outcry to do something about gun violence and -- i'm just kidding. all of the bills were rejected. >> the senate votes down new gun control measures tonight as 55% of americans say, in a brand-new cnn/orc poll, they want stricter gun laws. >> the u.s. senate has rejected four gun control measures introduced after the orlando shooting. the amendments would have strengthened background checks and prevented the sale of guns to people on a government terror watch list. >> seth: it's always such a
bummer when you get u.s. news from someone with a foreign accent. just feels like they're shaming you. we're not mad, we're just disappointed. [ laughter ] the bills democrats proposed would have done two things -- bar people on the no-fly list from buying guns and mandate universal background checks for all gun purchases. and that's something we badly need because there are plenty of ways to get a gun without going through a background check. as we explained last week, private dealers at gun shows don't have to conduct background checks. and that applies to private dealers online, too. >> you can only buy a gun without a background check in the 32 states that allow sales between two private citizens to take place unregulated. to find a gun in those states there's no easier way than this website. >> you can see that it has plenty of guns for sale. a gun that is listed for sale for $2100. it's a 308 rifle. this is a gun that if you're in the state of georgia, you could legally buy this gun without a background check right now.
>> seth: you can buy a gun online without a background check. you don't even have to fill out a captcha. [ laughter ] even worse, after you buy the gun, they deliver it via drone. [ laughter ] now that only applies to transactions between two people in the same state, but that doesn't matter very much given how easy it is to transport weapons across state lines. in fact, even states with strict gun control laws still face problems with guns from states with much looser laws, as new jersey senator cory booker explained. >> the overwhelming majority of the guns being used in crimes are not coming from new jersey where we have strong laws against acquiring guns without background checks, but were coming from states that have very lax laws. >> seth: and the last thing new jersey needs is more guns. they have so many guns they use them in place of the letter "r." [ laughter ] so that's why we need new federal laws curbing the easy availability of guns, laws like the ones the senate rejected
yesterday. because there are often fewer hoops to jump through to buy a gun than to buy all kinds of much less dangerous items. as cnn found, in many places it's less of a hassle to get a gun than it is to get a driver's license, a passport, cold medicine, a pet and a divorce. it's easier to get a gun than a divorce. and by the way, if you ever hear your spouse mumble that in their sleep, get out of there! [ light laughter ] get out of there! [ applause ] now, something the senate did not vote on yesterday was an assault weapons ban that would limit the availability of semiautomatic weapons like the ar-15, which have been used in several high-profile mass shootings. republicans and the gun lobby have steadfastly refused to reinstate a ban on the sale of weapons like the ar-15. but many argue that the ar-15 was never designed for civilian use in the first place. and last week, the family of the man who first invented the gun came out publicly and said as much.
>> it's the most talked about gun in america, and now the family of the inventor of the ar-15 assault rifle is speaking out about its intended use. the family of eugene stoner, the gun's creator, says that he designed it to be a military weapon to combat the ak-47, and that it was never meant for civilian use. they say stoner was an avid hunter and sportsman, but that he never used the gun for those purposes, and he also never kept one in his house for home defense. >> seth: wow. the inventor of the ar-15 never even used one. next we're going to find out dr. dre still uses the ear buds that came with his iphone. [ laughter ] i like how i can hear my music and everything else. unfortunately, all of this evidence has failed to overcome the nra's sway over gop lawmakers. in fact, the nra has given more than $36 million to the 56 republican senators who blocked the gun control measures on monday. now, the money may be a factor, but it's not the only or even the main reason the nra is so powerful. it's that gun owners are passionate and mobilized and often vote on this one issue
alone. which is why every election cycle politicians have to go through the ritual of professing their love of guns, even if they have to fake it. like mitt romney, who in 2007 tried unsuccessfully to convince hunters that he was one of them. >> i've always been, if you will, a rodent and rabbit hunter, all right? small, small varmints, if you will. and i began when i was, well, 15 or so. and i've hunted those kinds of varmints since then, more than two times. not deer and large animals. but i've hunted a number of times of various types of small rodents. >> seth: is it possible to make yourself sound less impressive. let's see, what else? i've hunted mice, hamsters. i hunted a bee once. well, not so much hunted as waved it out the window using a magazine. i'm one of you. romney was so bad at self-aggrandizing, i guess i shouldn't be surprised the gop nominee after him specializes in it.
i've killed bears, dragons and osama bin laden. [ laughter and applause ] even hillary clinton, even hillary clinton when she ran in 2008 criticized her rival, then-senator obama for making supposedly anti-gun comments, which prompted this classic obama response. >> she's running around talking about how this is an insult to sportsmen. how she values the second amendment. she's talking like she's annie oakley. hillary clinton is out there you know like she's out in a duck blind every sunday. she's packing a six-shooter. come on. >> seth: i think stand-up comedy obama is my favorite obama. [ laughter ] [ applause ] hey, why do they call them the secret service? they're not secret. they're standing right there.
i see you mother[ bleep ]. what else? what else? but now there are fortunately some signs that the politics of gun control may be slowly changing. for example, two vulnerable republican senators voted in favor of some of the gun control bills proposed by democrats yesterday and hillary clinton has made gun control a key part of her primary and general election campaigns this time out. hopefully that means there will be a political price to be paid for lawmakers who oppose gun control at the behest of the nra because that's the only way we'll make progress on this issue, if gun control advocates out organize the nra and voters hold pro gun politicians accountable at the ballot box. banning assault weapons and expanding background checks is common sense or as president obama might put it -- >> come on. [ light laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with anna kendrick, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪

[ laughter ] >> seth: please welcome back to the show our friend anna kendrick, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> i missed you terribly. >> seth: i've missed you so much. >> i missed you so much. >> seth: it's such a delight to have you back. >> thank you for having me back again. >> seth: and this is very exciting. i have to ask, you shot this film in hawaii. >> oh, yeah. it was -- yeah. >> seth: is that nice? >> it's amazing! it's paradise. but it turns out i'm like allergic to paradise. i don't know if you can tell this by looking at me, but not so much like a sun and surf kind of gal. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> more of an indoor kid. sort of under a roof with air conditioning reading a book gal. >> seth: yeah. and i would say like historically you don't hear, "oh, my god, if you love reading a book, go to hawaii." >> go to hawaii. [ light laughter ] >> seth: just so many great inside rooms in hawaii. >> yeah. lots of sunscreen, lots of bug spray.
>> seth: gotcha. did the bugs get to you? >> hawaii was trying to kill me. yeah. >> seth: oh, really? >> oh, yeah. no, then the bugs loved me. and adam divine, who's in this movie, he thought i was being like a little overdramatic at some point. and he saw my back and he was like, "you look like a leper." [ laughter ] >> seth: oh, okay. >> this is alarming. >> seth: so you were not just exaggerating. >> no. >> seth: it was trying to kill you. >> yeah. >> seth: now, this is based -- this film is based on a true story about brothers who used -- >> yeah. >> seth: inspired by. >> it's inspired by a true story. like the broiest bros of all time who were told by their parents, like just find some nice girls to bring to the wedding so you don't like make a scene and try and, you know, sleep with all the girls at the wedding. >> seth: okay. >> they put out a craigslist ad, as one does, to look for respectable young women. [ light laughter ] >> seth: got it. >> the kind of women you want to bring home to mom and dad. and i think in real life they found some nice girls. in the movie, they are looking for nice girls and they get me and aubrey plaza instead. [ light laughter ] >> seth: got it. there you go. >> yeah. and we are there to ruin lives. >> seth: and -- did you meet the actual brothers? is it true they came to the set? >> yeah, they came to the set,
like, halfway through filming. and by that time we were doing like so much improv and i was kind of in the zone. and our director was like, "oh, that's the real mike and dave over there." and they're very tall and very attractive. and we're in like this crowded hotel lobby and across the lobby i was like, "get your dicks out!" [ laughter ] and i'm not -- i don't -- i'm not that person. >> seth: right! >> i don't normally say things like that. but i was very method. i was very daniel day-lewis. >> seth: oh, i see. [ laughter ] and that's something that daniel day-lewis would say. >> yeah, yes, yeah. [ light laughter ] >> seth: he said it as abraham lincoln. that was -- >> yeah. "get thou dicks out." >> seth: yeah, i think that was. yeah. "we need to abolish slavery! get your dicks out!" [ laughter ] >> i remember that. >> seth: i think that was a famous scene. i think it was -- >> yeah, i learned that in, like, sixth grade or -- i remember that. i remember that. >> seth: yeah, i remember it, too. have you ever used craigslist in your life? >> well, i like have used craigslist to like sell furniture, buy furniture, that kind of thing. >> seth: gotcha. >> but i did -- i don't know if you've ever spent any time on the male/male casual encounter
section of craigslist. [ light laughter ] but -- not that you would or i would. >> seth: right. >> and yet i did. >> seth: and if i had, i wouldn't bring it up now, certainly. [ laughter ] >> but a friend of mine showed me that section. and it is -- you could just lose yourself in that section of craigslist. >> seth: okay. [ light laughter ] >> so we wanted to see if it was kind of legit. and we -- we just said, you know, we will -- me as a guy, we had a picture of our friend's butt. >> seth: okay. >> he doesn't know about this. but -- [ light laughter ] and a picture of our friend's -- >> seth: you just had it on hand? >> yeah. >> seth: okay. gotcha. >> yeah. do you not? >> seth: no. >> and posted it and we're like, "if you would be interested in having sex with this butt, it will be, you know, on the corner, in the bushes and i'm there for kind of casual sex." >> seth: okay. >> and then my friend and i like went and walked around the neighborhood to see if anybody would show up. and eventually like two guys showed up. and they were both like, "are you the" -- "yeah?" [ light laughter ] and they went off together. so we like -- we created like a
romance connection. >> seth: oh, my god. >> yeah! [ laughter ] i'm like expecting an invitation to the wedding any day. >> seth: do you think there was a moment where those gentlemen got to wherever they were going and disrobed -- >> oh! like that's not your butt! >> seth: and they both thought, "that's not the butt?" >> oh, no! [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> oh, maybe it ended badly. >> seth: i wonder if each of them thought the other one had used a fake butt picture. >> oh. and they're not trustworthy now. >> seth: yeah. >> i didn't think about that. the next time i do one, i'm gonna call you -- [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> and just clear it to make sure that it tracks. >> seth: it's about -- i can tell you, and again, i've never used it. >> uh-huh. >> seth: but it is about getting the details right. you and aubrey, friends in real life. >> yes. >> seth: which is really nice. and she's a fantastic person. and i heard -- did she help you buy a car? >> yeah. so this was like a couple years ago, i finally had to buy a new car. i've been driving the same car for like ten years. and i had never bought a car since the first car i bought
when i was 17, i'd never bought a car without like a parent. so i brought aubrey, because she's like a father figure. >> seth: sure. [ laughter ] >> and she came -- and i'm a terrible negotiator, because i just want to be like, "but -- come on." that's my negotiating tactic. like, "come on. don't." [ light laughter ] and aubrey was just -- she's like legitimately unhinged in real life. so she was just like sitting back like, "well, my dad owns a car dealership. and he builds rockets and he could kick your ass." [ light laughter ] i don't think it was helping much, but it confused them. >> seth: right, right. [ light laughter ] >> it confused them. so i ended up getting a pretty good deal. i think they were just like, "get out. get out." >> seth: yeah. we desperately need these two women to leave, so we can go back to selling cars. this is very exciting. i don't know how you possibly had time for this. but you wrote your first book. >> yes. >> seth: that's really exciting. what's your book called? >> "a scrappy little nobody." >> seth: that's fantastic. that's a great title. >> thank you. >> seth: and you write about your entire career? >> yeah, various things.
you know, i just try to be funny. like that's the idea. i think, like, my editor was like, "you should add some depth." and i was like, "nah." [ laughter ] if i had any i would. >> seth: "i'll give it to you guys and you can write some in, then i'll just sign off on it." >> be like, "and then i was sad." [ light laughter ] >> seth: but you, i heard that you wrote about your experiences on the "twilight" saga. >> yeah, that was actually, like, i spent very little time in my career on those movies, but they are just rife with stories. it was just the weirdest set i've ever been on. >> seth: yeah. >> and i ended up devoting an entire -- just like 'cause stories kept coming out. like an entire chapter to just "twilight." there was a day where -- my favorite day of filming a movie maybe ever where we're doing, like, a dream sequence. and i was just a dead body. i got flown down to like baton rouge, louisiana, just for one day, to be a dead body. and that was awesome, 'cause it was a dream sequence. and we were like -- all these characters are, like, in white. and we got in this line and there's this guy who's like the fake blood guy.
>> seth: yeah. >> like, that's his job for the day. so he's got this like hose -- it looks like a plant mister, you know? and there's like this line of characters, like we're at the dmv. like so casual, so normal and casual, just like each one of us getting lined up and then like getting sprayed down with fake blood by this mister. and then like climbing on top of a pile and laying there with our eyes open. [ laughter ] i was like, "oh, this is my job!" [ light laughter ] >> seth: that's fantastic. that's when you know you made it, when you're in a pile -- >> a pile of dead bodies. >> seth: you also -- animated film coming up, "trolls." >> "trolls." yeah. >> seth: and i know justin timberlake is also -- >> dude, i was doing press with justin timberlake. and i was like, "oh, i'm not famous." like, he is so famous. we did this press tour in cannes and i could tell that like every interviewer was like, "okay, we gotta throw her one question." then they're like, "justin, what about your baby? what about the music? what about 'nsync? what about the ramen noodles in
your hair? and have you seen that meme?" [ laughter ] and i was like, "oh, i'm like not -- i'm not a celebrity. i get it. i get that." >> seth: well, in time i really do think somebody will put ramen in your hair, then you'll know you -- that's really when you know you made it. >> okay. dead bodies. ramen noodle meme. >> seth: there you go. thanks so much for being here. it's always such a pleasure. >> thank you for having me.

[ laughter ] >> nuzzle. [ laughter ] it doesn't -- they were platonic friends. >> seth: right. >> come on. she was just a little cub. >> seth: yeah. >> so it's -- yeah, so we go down. >> seth: it must be. >> should i show you? >> seth: yeah, please. >> do you want to join me? >> seth: yeah, sure.

shows up and he's like -- >> seth: i would know -- i would know you as tarzan. >> well yeah, but there's this -- we want to sell it to the audience as like a stand-offish. >> seth: oh, so -- >> so there's tension. so the audience will be uh-oh, it's a big -- it's a big lion. they're going to fight. [ laughter ] and i freeze. >> seth: okay. >> you can bring it down a little bit. >> seth: okay, yeah. >> all right. and then i stay like this, and then margot tells sam, like, they're fine. and then i go down on all fours.

like ace is watching at home saying, oh, great, they're going to show a picture of me. [ light laughter ] this is ace dressed up as a gorilla later. >> this is post nuzzling, yeah. >> seth: okay. so that's what you were actually nuzzling.
