Didn't stay up for Monday night's late night talk shows? Here's some of what you might have missed:
Melissa McCarthy stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to promote her new movie, "Tammy," and while Kimmel asked her about a host of topics, the conversation always seemed to turn back to McCarthy's costar, Susan Sarandon, who plays McCarthy's grandmother in the film. In the first clip, the actress chatted about her upcoming handprint ceremony at TCL (formerly Grauman's) Chinese Theater in Hollywood, and how she may go barefoot to imprint her feet, a technique suggested by Sarandon. "If it's good enough for Susan Sarandon, I'm gonna fake that it's good enough for me," McCarthy said.
Speaking of Sarandon, in the next clip, McCarthy discussed how the veteran actress's beauty was actually a hindrance to production, since Tammy and her grandmother are supposed to look "dumpy" in the film. But Sarandon is so naturally pretty, McCarthy said, that they'd often have to halt production to make her lighting less flattering, and even gave her prosthetic ankles. "Like, whose ankles are gorgeous?" McCarthy asked Kimmel, noting that "the amount of effort that went into taking the glow off" of the actress was astounding.
McCarthy also recounted her recent experience throwing out the first pitch at a Los Angeles Dodgers game, and how Dodgers pitcher Brian Wilson psyched her out beforehand. While the actress acknowledged that Wilson's ribbing was all in good fun, she said she'd still hate to be another player facing him at the plate. "I'd just throw my bat and run," she said.
Also on "Kimmel," comedian Marc Maron chatted about how his childhood in Albuquerque, New Mexico was ruined when a local children's television show host, Captain Billy, was shot. Maron explained that his father, a doctor, came home and delivered the news, and when a 7- or 8-year-old Maron asked why it happened, his father gave the blunt reply, "Some guy caught him screwing his wife." "In retrospect, that's probably the most important thing I learned from Captain Billy," Maron told Kimmel.
Maron also talked about his popular podcast, "WTF," and an awkward mix-up he had with similarly-monikered guests. The comedian said that his assistant had told him she'd booked actor Kevin McDonald, of "The Kids in the Hall" fame, only to have a complete stranger show up for a recording instead. Maron quickly learned that it was British director Kevin Macdonald ("The Last King of Scotland"), about whom Maron knew nothing. While the comedian was able to record a shortened version of "WTF," he said he still wants to get McDonald in the studio and release the interviews together.
Finally, over on "Chelsea Lately," actor Eric Bana stopped by to chat about his new movie, "Deliver Us From Evil," and the real-life demonologist who inspired the flick. Bana said he prepared for the role by watching clips of exorcisms, noting that the ceremonies were "eerie" and kept him up at night. Host Chelsea Handler offered Bana some moral support, but balked when the married actor clutched her with his wedding ring clad hand. "Why would you throw that in my face?!" asked an incredulous Handler.
