‘Stay the f**k at home’: Samuel L. Jackson reads you a sweary, poetic social distancing PSA

'Stay the f**k at home': Samuel L. Jackson reads you a sweary, poetic social distancing PSA

Almost a decade ago, Samuel L. Jackson’s reading of bedtime poem “Go the Fuck to Sleep” captivated the internet. Now the actor has returned to spoken word, presenting author Adam Mansbach’s timely new adaptation of the classic: “Stay the Fuck at Home.”

“The ‘rona is spreading, this shit is no joke — it’s no time to work or roam,” read Jackson, delivering the important PSA on a video call with Jimmy Kimmel. “The way you can fight it is simple, my friends: stay the fuck at home.” 

Jackson has taken his own advice and is social distancing in his own home with his wife and daughter. He also encouraged people to donate to Feeding America, a charity that works to relieve hunger in the U.S. Read more…

Joe Biden joins Jimmy Kimmel to talk cooking, coronavirus, and calling out Trump

Joe Biden joins Jimmy Kimmel to talk cooking, coronavirus, and calling out Trump

“With all that’s been going on over the past couple of weeks virus-wise, I feel like we’ve almost forgotten about the presidential election,” said Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday. All elections are important, but the coronavirus pandemic and a severely divisive U.S. president have raised the stakes particularly high this year.

As such, Democratic candidate Joe Biden joined Kimmel via video call to discuss his campaign, how he’s social distancing, and Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I don’t quite understand the lack of willingness to move rapidly and to let science dictate,” said Biden, referring to Trump’s slow reaction to the pandemic. Read more…

Jimmy Kimmel and Julia Louis-Dreyfus share coronavirus cabin fever tips

Jimmy Kimmel and Julia Louis-Dreyfus share coronavirus cabin fever tips

“Thank you for joining me during corona-geddon,” Jimmy Kimmel quipped from his coronavirus-induced home isolation on Thursday. “This is day, what, 75?”

Millions of people worldwide are cooped up inside in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus, and people are already going a bit stir-crazy. In Kimmel’s case, this has translated to baking bread and committing to dressing up for #FormalFriday tomorrow. Unfortunately, as Kimmel notes, the U.S. government has said this situation could last over 18 months.

“I am not sure how many rolls of toilet paper that is, but I know I don’t have them,” said Kimmel. “Eighteen months of quarantine means we are about to see a lot of our friends’ real hair color.” Read more…

Jimmy Kimmel has fantasies about Trump’s impeachment trial

Jimmy Kimmel has fantasies about Trump's impeachment trial

“It was an all caps kind of day for the President of the United States today,” said the host of Jimmy Kimmel Live during Thursday’s episode. 

President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial is scheduled to start on Tuesday, with the Senate requesting he provide a written response to the charges by Saturday. Of course, as Kimmel pointed out, Trump dealt with this request the same way he deals with most things — with angry tweeting. Which is a kind of written response, I guess.

Kimmel went on to go through some of the special rules the senators in the impeachment trial will have to abide by, including having to stand when they cast votes. “[This] is a big deal, because for a lot of these senators this will be the first time they’ve ever stood for anything,” quipped Kimmel.

Tom Holland recalls the drunken call that helped keep Spider-Man in the MCU

Tom Holland recalls the drunken call that helped keep Spider-Man in the MCU

On Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, friendly neighbourhood Tom Holland spoke about how he helped keep Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a drunken phone call.

Believing Spider-Man was being removed from the MCU, Holland had initially only asked for Disney CEO Bob Iger contact details so he could thank him for the experience. “I got his email, I sent him the email, and he responded very quickly saying, ‘I’d love to jump on the phone with you at some point — when are you free?'” recalled Holland. “And you don’t give Bob Iger a schedule. You’re like, ‘whenever, Bob!'”  Read more…

Jimmy Kimmel tricks Trump fans into declaring their support for… Richard Nixon

Tuesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! took to the streets to ask Trump supporters whether they felt the U.S. president should be impeached for his controversial actions. Unsurprisingly, they didn’t, disagreeing across the board.

However, the facts put to the public weren’t actually about Donald Trump. Instead, they were very clear and obvious references to Richard Nixon. You know, that other U.S. president who also faced impeachment for doing crimes. The one who gave us the suffix “-gate” for every public scandal since the ’70s. The one who resigned rather than drag everyone through further mud-slinging and suffering. Read more…

‘Queer Eye’ gives Guillermo a makeover on Jimmy Kimmel, and it’s not just comedy

TwitterFacebook

Queer Eye is back, with Season 3 ready to mist up your eyes on Netflix.

So, Jimmy Kimmel invited four of the Fab Five, Antoni, Karamo, Tan, and Jonathan, to weave their magic for the late show host’s longtime sidekick, Guillermo.

Let’s start with that “bold t-shirt choice,” a portrait of a chihuahua mean to make you “bark for your confidence,” and a strong (very strong) Tequila Sunrise recipe.

It’s a genuinely heartwarming segment, due to the Fab Five’s signature respect for all of their subjects, even if it’s for a comedy show. Read more…

Chris Pine and Jimmy Kimmel nerd out over their first ever concerts

TwitterFacebook

What was your first concert? Did one of your parents take you or did you go it alone?

Chris Pine’s a keen Metallica fan, but it wasn’t his first concertHollywood Chris and star of both Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman and I Am the Night, Pine had a delightful nerd-out with Jimmy Kimmel on Friday over music, from their first concerts to Pine’s teenage band in which he rapped Vanilla Ice (and still can).

While Kimmel’s first concert was Sammy Davis Jr. in Vegas, Pine’s first concert was Faith No More, with Kyuss and Babes in Toyland. And although it wasn’t his first concert, Kimmel went to Lionel Richie with his mother.  Read more…

Jimmy Kimmel on the Sarah Sanders doctored video: ‘She should be fired for that’

TwitterFacebook

The doctored video of the interaction between CNN’s Jim Acosta and a White House intern, which was posted by the Trump administration and originated from Infowars, hardly pleased many of us, including Jimmy Kimmel.

“She should be forced to resign for that,” Kimmel said on Thursday. “She intentionally disseminated doctored video footage to discredit a reputable journalist … Sarah Huckabee Sanders should be fired and sent to live in a JOANN’s Fabrics store.”

Also in the line of fire was Kellyanne Conway, who also took the side of the intern. It’s “so ridiculous,” in fact, that Kimmel decided to take his qualms straight to Conway herself. Read more…

Jimmy Kimmel created a fake Broadway musical version of ‘Sully’ but then actually did it

TwitterFacebook

Film after film has been made into a Broadway musical, from Mean Girls to Legally Blonde. But who would have thought you could make a musical from Sully?

For a new segment dubbed “Fraudway,” Jimmy Kimmel made up a musical version of the 2016 film starring Tom Hanks, inspired by the emergency landing made by U.S. Airways Flight 1549 in New York’s Hudson River, after it struck a flock of geese.

Kimmel’s team asked folks passing through Times Square in New York to review the fake musical, dubbed Hudson, We Have a Problem, with pretty hilarious results.

But not to make liars out of their participants, Kimmel then presented an actual number from his Sully-inspired musical on Tuesday night’s show, performed at the Howard Gilman Opera House of the Brooklyn Academy of Music.  Read more…

Tiffany Haddish says she ‘would thrive in space’

TwitterFacebook

You’d better believe Tiffany Haddish would be quite alright existing in space.

The Girls Trip star and Saturday Night Live favourite joined Jimmy Kimmel for a cocktail and “Three Ridiculous Questions” on Thursday night, one of which was whether or not she would do well in space.

“I know I would thrive in space,” she told Kimmel. “If there was a man there with me. If there’s a female there, I’m not gonna thrive. Because we can’t reproduce.”

Older man? “That’s fine, yeah that’s cool with me, I’ll change his space diaper. That sperm still work.” Read more…

Finally, a climate change ad specifically for Trump

TwitterFacebook

It’s no secret that Donald Trump is clueless about climate change.

Given the soaring summer heat in many parts of the globe, including the Arctic Circle, it’s about time the president pay attention. It’s a tricky task, but Jimmy Kimmel might have the solution by creating an ad that puts those issues into terms that Trump can understand.

After all, it’s true that golf courses and fast food supplies will be affected as extreme heat and droughts cause havoc. He wouldn’t want to ruin his handicap. Read more…

Jimmy Kimmel finally responds to Trump’s bizarre rally rant — with a fact check

TwitterFacebook

Jimmy Kimmel has been pretty quiet about Donald Trump’s recent vendetta against late night show hosts.

During a rally for South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, Trump called Stephen Colbert a “low life,” Jimmy Fallon a “lost soul,” and Kimmel “terrible.” But unlike Colbert and Fallon, Kimmel had yet to respond. 

Now we know why — he was off-grid, on summer vacation with his family in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, Montana with no service. But Kimmel finally responded to Trump on Monday night, with a big ol’ fact check.

During the rally speech, Trump told a longwinded story about his experience on Jimmy Kimmel Live! pre-election, that included a claim that the late show host reverently waited out on Hollywood Boulevard for Trump, and apparently visited him in his dressing room before the show. Read more…

Jimmy Kimmel wasted no time in making a few Trump jokes at the Oscars

TwitterFacebook

Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel didn’t take too may jabs at President Donald Trump during the opening monologue on Sunday.

But when he did, they were pretty good.

“Maybe this is not a popular thing to say but I want to say thank you to President Trump. I mean remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist?”

That was among the few jokes about the president the host made to kick off Hollywood’s biggest night.

He opened the monologue by saying while many advised him to “say something to unite” viewers, he “can’t do that.” Read more…
