After covering the Oscars this past Sunday for what seemed like hours (because they were), I watched the montage of 2009 films to come before promptly shutting off my set. Well, leave it to Weinberg to point out shortly thereafter that Mel Gibson was going to appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and leave it to me to go ahead and grab my remote like the bell-hearing dog that I am. It wasn't anything against Kimmel -- even if I think the funniest thing he's ever done was Sarah Silverman (and we all know how thatturned out) -- but out of morbid curiosity, I went ahead and put it on.
Holy hell, Kimmel and an oddly bearded Gibson were swapping "shalom" jokes and frankly discussing his infamous DUI incident before Kimmel plugged the alternate endings on the Passion of the Christ Blu-ray. Then came the capper: a glimpse of Mel's latest secretive project, which we've embedded above and found to be a surprisingly hilarious look at romance, revenge, and secret recipes.
What do you guys and girls think? Does this endear either Gibson or Kimmel the slightest in your eyes?
