Best of Late Night TV: Obama Calls Trump With Advice, Meryl Streep's Guitar Lesson, 'Flinch' Game
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Since Gawker leaked Donald Trump's phone number, "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" did a bit where President Obama called Trump with debate advice. Cue Jimmy's impressive impression of The Donald and his constant interruptions and number dumping: Trump: "I don't understand, why would you want to help me become president?" Obama: "Uh, because it'd be hilarious? Look, I've been president for eight years, I'm ready for some entertainment. I just want to grab some popcorn, sit back, and watch this whole sh-tshow go down." Haha. Watch the whole video for their "Cheerleader" duet. Please say it's true that Trump's debate will indeed be auto-tuned.Meryl Streep was on "The Tonight Show" to promote her new movie "Ricki and the Flash." She didn't get to say too much because Jimmy dominated the conversation with his gushing, but she told Jimmy she used to think she looked fat and had a weird nose in old films. She was tough on herself, like many women can be. Looking back, she thinks "my god, what was my problem?" In the second video, talking about the movie, she said Neil Young gave her her first guitar lesson, and she described what it was like to play a failed rock star.
Jerrod Carmichael was also on "The Tonight Show" to talk about his new HBO special. He also gushed over Meryl Streep and said her career is so strong it could even survive a face tattoo. Test that theory, Meryl!
Matt LeBlanc, William H. Macy, and Don Cheadle were on "The Late Late Show with James Corden," and it was magical. They played a game called "Flinch," putting someone behind a glass barrier while others threw stuff at them, and it was their job not to flinch. Classic.The three actors all share a love of riding motorcycles. You have to love Don Cheadle's explanation of how he got his ride. James proposed the four of them start a "mean" motorcycle gang and they were down for it. "Fantastic Four" star Miles Teller was on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" to talk about the movie. Miles admitted he was not a comic book fan before being in F4, but it was his dad's favorite comic book.
Seth got into the game act with a fun quiz called "Fortune Cookie or True Detective Quote?" playing off the ridiculous dialogue in the HBO show. They really nailed the tone.
Conan drank some Truth Serum and "couldn't lie" after that point. So Andy Richter asked him a series of questions. What did he really do over the break? The Food Network and Mike's Hard Lemonade are involved. "If someone made a movie about your genitals, what would it be called?" "Ant Man."
Ice-T and Coco were both on "Conan" and she's 5.5 months pregnant with a baby girl, but still barely showing. She said her boobs somehow got even bigger and she has to lift them up. Conan said he and Andy are always there for her.
