  • Seth--
  • [CHEERING]
  • --I saw you last night.
  • Yes.
  • And I'm wondering, why are you so handsome right now?
  • I don't know.
  • This is an animated movie.
  • You don't need to look this good.
  • I don't need it. I save it for these moments.
  • Yeah. It's really weird.
  • I should be putting this onscreen.
  • - Yeah. - But no, I'm--
  • You got to pick your spots, you know?
  • --squandering it with the voice.
  • Yeah.
  • I'm sorry, everybody.
  • I'm glad you're here.
  • Me too.
  • I have to say, I'm surprised you're working on 7/10,
  • on Oil Day, as the-- did you know about Oil Day?
  • No, I didn't.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: You didn't?
  • That's, like, a thing?
  • Yeah, it's-- whatever you can--
  • you know, any excuse to vape it up, I guess, why not?
  • Vape it. Yeah.
  • Yeah. How are you doing?
  • Everything all right? Everything good?
  • - Everything's pretty good. - Everything's good.
  • Yeah.
  • We're promoting a Disney movie.
  • Was Disney nervous about you promoting their movie?
  • I'm shocked that it's happening,
  • to be totally honest.
  • Like, I could only hurt things.
  • Like, the movie, I think, is going to do well,
  • and it does not need me out here helping that happen.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: I have a theory, though.
  • I have a theory, though.
  • I'm genuinely curious why they think this is--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: I'll tell you why.
  • --anything but potentially bad for them.
  • - Well, I think I know why. - Why?
  • It's because they're going to have--
  • I mean, listen, this is a movie where the animals are talking,
  • and they're going to need someone that the stoners feel
  • comfortable with--
  • It's true.
  • --because people could freak out.
  • It's true. I will guide you through it.
  • I will anchor--
  • I'm your anchor voice.
  • If it's getting intense, they're like, oh, Seth's here.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Boy, that's some movie.
  • I brought my-- my wife and I brought our daughter--
  • Yeah, I saw you last night.
  • --to the movie, and we all just loved it.
  • And we were-- - Oh, thank god.
  • --all laughing through the whole thing.
  • It really is-- - That's so great.
  • - It's fantastic. - Yeah.
  • Yeah. It's nice to--
  • I brought my nephews who are--
  • yeah, younger. And--
  • - How old are they? - They're, like, six and nine.
  • OK.
  • And yeah-- and they've never been able to come
  • to one of my movie premieres.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Right.
  • And I think they were starting to think that I
  • was lying to them about being an actor, because I would always--
  • it would come up.
  • I'd be like, oh, yeah, I'm an actor.
  • And then they'd be like, well, can we see one of your movies?
  • And I'm like, no, not at all.
  • And it was like my fake girlfriend in Canada.
  • Like, they were starting to doubt it.
  • But as a Canadian, that analogy is different.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Yeah, no-- - But yeah.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Well, we get it. Yeah.
  • You know what I'm saying. But yeah.
  • What do you guys say? Do you say we have--
  • I have a fake girlfriend in the United States?
  • In America. Yeah.
  • I say I have a-- JIMMY KIMMEL: You say--
  • OK.
  • Yeah.
  • --fake America in the States.
  • We call them the States. Yeah.
  • Beyoncé was at the premiere last night.
  • Beyoncé was there. I got to--
  • Oh, my wife was losing her mind.
  • Everyone was losing their mind.
  • It was a--
  • I've never seen this happen before,
  • in that Jon, the director--
  • Favreau-- like, introduced the cast before the screening.
  • So one by one we were called out onstage to wave.
  • And Beyoncé was called out, and the audience stood up--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Yeah.
  • --and went crazy. JIMMY KIMMEL: We stood up.
  • Yeah, we did.
  • And I was like, she's getting a standing
  • ovation for just existing.
  • Like, her mere presence was a reason to stand and go crazy.
  • And I totally got it.
  • I was like, yeah, like, we should be celebrating.
  • We made it.
  • We're all in a room with Beyoncé.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh, really? Yeah.
  • That's what you want.
  • And I, like, got--
  • I know they weren't clapping for me, but I was on the stage,
  • and I, for a brief moment, felt like what it must feel
  • like to have that adulation.
  • And like, all I was thinking was just like,
  • oh, man, people do not like me that much.
  • Like, I don't get one iota of this.
  • Like, I get, like--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: I don't think anyone likes anyone as much--
  • No. I get, like, a--
  • - --everyone likes Beyoncé. - --smattering at best.
  • Like, they saw her, and people, like, lost their [BLEEP]..
  • - Yeah, they did. - Yeah.
  • It was crazy.
  • - Did you speak to her at all? - I did.
  • I saw her backstage.
  • And then she came up to me and was--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh.
  • I wasn't going to go up to her, mostly for fear.
  • Last time I did try to approach her was
  • at the Grammy's around 11 years ago,
  • and her security knocked me so hard--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh, really?
  • --that I spilled my drink all over myself.
  • Yeah. JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh, no.
  • I know.
  • It was terrible.
  • So I was wary of going near her, because I
  • look like someone who you would want to keep away from Beyoncé.
  • In general.
  • And so I waited for her to approach me,
  • which they teach you.
  • And so she was very nice.
  • And my beard actually got stuck in, like,
  • her sequins a little bit.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh.
  • If you look closely, you'll see
  • some gray hair on her shoulder.
  • Yeah.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Tonight, by the way-- earlier tonight on ABC,
  • they had the ESPYs, which is-- do you know what the ESPYs are?
  • - It's a sport award. - It's a sports thing.
  • Yeah. - Yeah.
  • It's not the sports-- like, you win for winning your--
  • winning your sport is the award.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Well, yeah.
  • So what is that?
  • It's a great question, actually.
  • It's clear who deserves awards in sports.
  • It's the people who won.
  • It's a really good point.
  • Well, sometimes they'll take people from various sports,
  • and then pick one of them, and make them
  • compete against each other.
  • Against each other. Finally.
  • Finally. - Yeah, right.
  • So like, a golfer and a basketball
  • player, and who's better.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: That's exactly right.
  • That's totally insane.
  • Literally makes no sense.
  • So you were not following, like,
  • the Raptors, who won the NBA title,
  • even though you're a Canadian?
  • I was that.
  • That-- I happened to be in Vancouver at my cousin's bar
  • mitzvah, actually. And--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: And they were watching.
  • They were watching it. They set up big screens.
  • It was a big event for us. Yeah.
  • So yeah--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: You did watch that.
  • I knew that was that.
  • But in general, no, I'm not a sports guy.
  • And I was actually on "The Shop" recently, which is--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: This is why I wanted to ask you about this.
  • And you were on "The Shop." Yeah.
  • This is LeBron James' talk show on HBO.
  • Yeah. - Yeah.
  • Where you go and get your hair cut while--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Right. - --you're doing an interview.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: You do. Yeah.
  • Which would be great right now, to be totally honest.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Did you get your hair cut?
  • Because some people say, nah, I don't want a haircut.
  • - I did get my hair cut-- - Yeah.
  • I did, too. - --which is--
  • I was trying to act cool.
  • And like, when you have a bib on, inherently, to me, that's
  • a challenge in acting cool.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Yeah.
  • But I tried to power through it.
  • And--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: They put a bib on you, huh?
  • They did not put a bib on me. - They put a bib--
  • they looked at me, they're like, this guy needs the bib.
  • This guy-- it's going to get everywhere.
  • And yeah, but I didn't know who anyone was
  • that I was on the show with-- JIMMY KIMMEL: Do you know now?
  • --because they're all athletes.
  • I met them. I know them as people.
  • I don't know what sports they play.
  • I know DeAndre--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Jordan? - --Jordan.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Yes. - He was a lovely guy.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: He's a basketball player.
  • He's-- I hope he's great at it.
  • It was-- and--
  • He's very good. Yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • And it was-- yeah, and so I didn't
  • know what to say to them. I knew they were athletes.
  • I didn't know what sports they played.
  • And so I found myself just talking to them
  • like I was coaching, like, a Little League
  • team, just like, good luck!
  • Go get 'em!
  • Try your best out there, guys!
  • Like, hope you win and get the ESPY!
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: I hope they did. We don't know.
  • Yeah. I don't know.
  • We don't know. It's happening right now.
  • Oh, all right, let me see what we're dealing with here.
  • It's a lion!
  • Run for your life, Pumbaa! - Wait, wait, wait.
  • Hey, Timon, wait, wait, wait! Timon, wait!
  • It's a little lion.
  • It gets bigger.
  • Can we keep him? Can we please keep him?
  • Oh. Oh, OK.
  • I promise, I'll walk him every day.
  • If he makes a little mess, I'll clean it up.
  • You'll be his little mess.
  • He's going to eat you, and then use my body as a toothpick.
  • But one day, when he's big and strong, he'll be on our side.
  • I've got it.
  • What if he's on our side?
  • Hear me out!
  • Having a ferocious lion around might not be such a bad idea.
  • Well, then, can't we keep him?
  • Yes, of course we can keep him!
  • - Well-- - My god!
  • Who is the brains of this operation?
  • (SINGING) We're going to name him Fred!
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • That is Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner in "The Lion King,"
  • which is an unbelievable movie.
  • It really is an unbelievable-- it's like nothing
  • I've ever seen before. And you--
  • - No. - --guys really steal the film.
  • Oh, that's so nice.
  • You and Billy are hysterically funny in this thing.
  • Thank you.
  • Did "The Lion King" mean anything to you as a kid?
  • It did.
  • I watched it a ton as a kid.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: You did?
  • Yeah, it was one of my favorite movies, honestly.
  • And what's actually been weird is, in my head,
  • I watched-- it was like--
  • when I was, like, six, it came out,
  • and I watched it over and over.
  • I found out recently I was, like, 13 when it came out,
  • which was, like, pretty old to be,
  • like, really into a Disney cartoon.
  • Like, I was, like, about to go into high school.
  • But I was like, are you sure '94?
  • I was like-- but--
  • yeah.
  • So despite it being a little probably below my demographic,
  • I was a huge fan of "The Lion King."
  • I specifically loved Timon and Pumbaa,
  • and thought they were hilarious.
  • And I genuinely use the phrase "no worries" a lot.
  • So it all kind of came together.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: And they called you,
  • and they said, hey, we want you to play the warthog.
  • A warthog.
  • Yeah.
  • And we're going to make him much uglier than in the original.
  • Just so you know, yeah, that's going to be a whole thing.
  • Yeah.
  • No one knew what a warthog looked like.
  • That's what I've learned from this whole experience.
  • Yeah. - Yeah, warthogs are not--
  • No.
  • People thought they were like-- like, Babe was not a warthog.
  • I don't know what to tell you. Yeah.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: But if you think about it,
  • the name of the animal is warthog--
  • - Yeah. - --which are--
  • What would be uglier than a "wart hog?"
  • Like, a-- - Maybe--
  • "Back knee" snake, or something like that.
  • Yeah. Yeah.
  • Or, like, a herpes rabbit.
  • A herpes rabbit. Yeah.
  • A herpes rabbit even sounds kind of cute, to be totally honest.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Yeah, it would be kind of cute.
  • If it's got herpes, it's got to have some attractiveness
  • in some way, shape, or--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: By the way, I was also impressed
  • by your singing in the film.
  • Thank you.
  • Yes, I sing in the film. JIMMY KIMMEL: Yeah.
  • Yes.
  • I share a song credit with Beyoncé, which is crazy.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Yeah. - I apologized to her--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: It's about time. - --for that.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: It's about time. - Yeah, exactly.
  • It must be a big deal for her.
  • So I'm happy about that.
  • She's worked hard.
  • Did you really-- did you think about
  • that when you took the part, that
  • you were going to have to sing? - I did.
  • And I'm not a trained singer.
  • I have not sung a lot in my life in a professional manner.
  • And so, yes, it was not--
  • I was like, you could just autotune me.
  • Like, I don't think Britney Spears ever sang, honestly.
  • And they didn't want to do that.
  • And they were like, no-- JIMMY KIMMEL: Yeah, no.
  • We want you to actually sing.
  • And Pharrell Williams produced the soundtrack with--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh, boy.
  • I know.
  • Talk about, like, your highest pressure situ--
  • they were like, don't worry, we're
  • going to bring in Pharrell and Hans to work with you.
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Hans Zimmer.
  • Hans Zimmer, the most legendary,
  • like, composer alive.
  • So I'm like, great.
  • And so it was me in a little booth with Hans and Pharrell
  • on the other side.
  • As a Jew, I'm instantly uncomfortable around any Hans.
  • Like, you know?
  • You don't want to anger a guy named Hans.
  • It is ingrained in my DNA in some sort of way.
  • And so I would sing.
  • I would do a take.
  • And then behind the soundproof glass,
  • I would see Hans and Pharrell, like, throwing their hands up,
  • and pointing to each other, and kind of pointing at me,
  • and gesturing.
  • And then, like, very nicely, Pharrell
  • would be like, uh, yeah let's just try one more time.
  • And then I would try it again.
  • And I'd see Hans just, like--
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: Really?
  • And Pharrell just, like, calming him down and talking.
  • And then he's just, like, yeah, just try it a little-- just
  • throw it away more. Just throw it away more.
  • I'm like, OK.
  • And then, like, 36 hours later, we had "Hakuna Matata."
  • JIMMY KIMMEL: You had it. You nailed it.
  • Well, however long it took, it was worth it.
  • Seth Rogen, everybody!
  • "The Lion King" opens July 19!
