  • - We were just talking about first dates
  • and bad first dates.
  • Have you had bad first dates?
  • - Well, one thing I always do is,
  • I always bring my dates to my mother's house
  • for the first date.
  • That's like-- - See?
  • - I think that's a good move. - It is a good move.
  • Yeah, she thought so too. She thought it was a great idea.
  • - My mother believes that-- like, she thinks
  • arranged marriages actually might be able to work.
  • You know what I mean? Like, in a good way.
  • - Really? - Yeah, she does.
  • She thinks if she picked for me that I'd do a lot better.
  • - And has she ever picked for you?
  • Has she said, "Hey, I met somebody
  • that maybe you should meet?"
  • - No, 'cause I always bring them to her house on the first date.
  • - Right, but what if she met someone someplace else
  • and she said, "I met someone, and you should meet"--
  • - Absolutely, I would trust my mom.
  • - You'd be open to that. - Absolutely.
  • - Right, so you're single right now.
  • - Yes.
  • [cheers and applause]
  • - You are so busy. And I really mean it.
  • I think that you are-- I was watching the movie
  • with Portia, and we were just saying
  • you are such an amazing actor,
  • and you choose such diverse roles.
  • You were in "Nightcrawler," and you had lost all that weight
  • 'cause you wanted to be coyote-like,
  • and in "Southpaw," you're a boxer,
  • and your body is insanely good.
  • And now you're doing--what? What?
  • - No, it's just funny.
  • You're like, "You're a good actor.
  • You're so good, and your body is so good."
  • - Yeah.
  • - Like, I guess that's acting.
  • - Yeah, no, we had the sound down.
  • We weren't listening. We had the sound down.
  • But it was-- - It was such a colorful movie.
  • - No, no, but, I mean, you just--
  • you choose a lot of diverse roles,
  • and now you're doing-- you did Broadway, right?
  • - Yeah.
  • - And then now you're doing a musical.
  • - Well, I'm doing three nights at Lincoln Center, yeah.
  • - What are you doing?
  • - I'm doing "Little Shop of Horrors."
  • - You are? - Yeah.
  • - Wow. - Yeah.
  • - That's--
  • [applause]
  • For three nights. What?
  • - They're less enthusiastic about that
  • then that I'm single.
  • - Yeah. - That's cool.
  • - Yeah, no, they don't care. - It's a really good show.
  • - Yeah.
  • And he's single.
  • [cheers and applause]
  • But at first, I was surprised,
  • because I haven't seen you sing before,
  • I don't think, and then I found out
  • you were in a band when you were younger.
  • - Yeah, I was.
  • I was in a really, really bad band
  • when I was in high school.
  • - What was the name?
  • - The name of the band was called Hole Shot.
  • - How come?
  • [laughter]
  • - I have no idea.
  • [laughter]
  • What did you-- you found--
  • [cheers and applause]
  • - Surprise.
  • - You just surprised me.
  • Yeah. - So look at--
  • - That's one good-looking band right there.
  • - Y'all are tough. - Yup.
  • - He's acting like he's checking the time.
  • He's doesn't have a watch, but he's like--
  • - He's just ashamed of the music we were making.
  • - What kind of-- what kind of music did you make?
  • Was it-- I'm assuming pop.
  • - No, it was like-- I don't really have any idea.
  • I don't really remember, but it was like--
  • It was rock music, I guess.
  • - Mm-hmm. - Yeah.
  • Oh, no, you have the CD.
  • - I wish.
  • - Why did I give you that idea?
  • - Why don't we have the CD?
  • - Why did I give you that idea?
  • - All right, well, we'll have it.
  • - Okay, good, yeah, it was like rock music.
  • - By next segment--
  • we're gonna take a commercial break--
  • we will have it.
  • Wait, let me ask you this, did you write your own music,
  • or did you do cover songs?
  • - No, we wrote our own music. - Oh, even better.
  • - Yeah, yeah. - Yeah.
  • Did you write the songs? - No.
  • - Who did? - I wrote--
  • I was just a lyricist.
  • - Well... - I just wrote the lyrics.
  • - Right, so you wrote the songs.
  • - Yeah. Like, partially, yes.
  • Not the music, but the lyrics.
  • - Right, you wrote the songs. - Yes, half of the song.
  • - You'd be horrible on trial.
  • You just don't know how to answer a question.
  • - No, I'd be guilty immediately.
