-Welcome back to the show.
-Thank you. -Always nice to see you, buddy.
-Thank you. -Thank you so much
for being here. Uh… [ Laughter ] What did —
Did you bring me something? -I — yeah.
-Yeah? -Yeah, I did.
-Yeah. Yeah. [ Laughter ] -You know what
this is about, right? -I do know what this is about,
I think. -Because the last time
I was here, you asked me how I get ready
to go on stage, and I said I listen
to my “Alvin and the Chipmunks” records in the dressing room. And you said, “You should
come over to my house sometime, and we’ll watch
‘Alvin and the Chipmunks’ and put on our ‘Alvin
and the Chipmunks’ onesies.'” [ Laughter ] Well, after that segment, whoever is in charge
of “Alvin and the Chipmunks” sent me these onesies.
[ Laughter ] -Is that right?
-That’s power. [ Laughter ]
-That is power, right there. Is it easy to —
Shall I get one on? [ Cheers and applause ] -I didn’t want to put you
in a pressured position. -Just maybe — We’ll talk
about your movie while you– -While you strip?
-[ Chuckles ] No, no, no, no. [ Audience cheers ] Here’s the way
my stripping works — People pay me to put clothes on.
[ Laughter ] -Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
-They go, “Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Jimmy Fallon,”
and I just get dressed with more layers
and more layers. You’re here on a special night.
-I know. And if you don’t mind,
I’d like to say — I have been thinking
of a couple of vets today I would like to say hi to.
-That would be fantastic. -They’re both named Bob. Bob Adams,
he was in the Vietnam War. And my friend Bob Pennington, who I met when I was
working on “12 Strong.” So hey, Bob, and hey, Bob. [ Cheers and applause ] Yeah. Thank you. They’re probably embarrassed
that I’m mentioning them right now considering
what I’m wearing. But they’ll just have to
get over it. [ Laughter ] -Can we talk about your movie
“Knives Out”? -Sure can.
-I enjoyed it. I loved it.
-Oh, thank you. -I haven’t seen a movie like
that in a long time. -Yeah, it’s like
an Agatha Christie — In the spirit of Agatha
Christie, a good old fashioned
murder mystery type movie. -Like a whodunit type of —
-A whodunit type movie. -Like a “Clue” —
like a “Clue” type of a movie. -Oh, my God. [ Laughter ]
-I do like it — -I have one of those lives where
every day is a dream come true. [ Laughter ] Like, I never thought in
a million years when I was out playing in the crick behind my
house in Kentucky when I was 5 that I would someday be
on a late night talk show and force a very famous man to put an “Alvin
and the Chipmunks” shirt on. -I actually —
-Yeah, right? It’s something —
[ Cheers and applause ] It’s an accomplishment.
It’s an accomplishment. ♪♪ That’s beautiful.
So, yeah, it’s like a whodunit. And it’s — My dad is played
by Christopher Plummer, and he’s a famous
mystery writer. And we all get together
for his birthday. And wouldn’t you know it, by
the end of the night, he’s dead. -Yeah.
-And somebody did it. -Yeah.
-So then Daniel Craig comes and tries to figure out
who did it. -He’s fantastic in it. But
everyone’s a little suspicious. -Yeah, a little shady.
-Everybody’s a little shady. You play — You play it great,
as you always do. You’re a very good actor.
-Thank you, Jimmy. -Do people come up to you a lot?
Do they recognize you? -Yeah. [ Laughter ]
Yeah, sometimes. Well, I have been to airports — I was hearing about
your travel stories today. I had my own travel stories
today. Airports are a particularly
vulnerable situation. Also the locker room at the Y.
People feel very comfortable… [ Laughter ]
…coming up and to me and telling me —
One guy recently came up to me and he said, “Hey,
I seen you in the movies. I’ve seen you
in a lot of movies, and you always make
the same face in every one.” [ Laughter ] I’m like, “Well, it works.”
-Yeah, what do you say? Yeah, yeah.
-Yeah. [ Laughter ]
-“I’m in a lot of movies.” Yeah.
-I mean, here’s my wallet. -It’s a good face, yeah.
[ Laughter ] -Can we do something funny
with these uniforms on? -Yeah.
-Wrestle or something? [ Laughter ] [ Cheers and applause ] We’re just sitting here.
-We can talk about — If you want to,
we can talk about “The Current War:
Director’s Cut.” -While we’re wrestling?
-Yeah. -Okay.
-Let’s talk about — -This is perfect because
“The Current War” is about the battle between Thomas Edison
and George Westinghouse. -Uh-huh. Yeah.
[ Cheers and applause ] And I didn’t know much
about that. -Yeah, yeah. -Then you throw a little Nikola
Tesla in there. -Yeah.
-And — Oh! That’s a dirty move! -That’s not a dirty move.
-That’s a dirty move! I almost hit you.
[ Indistinct arguing ] -Oh, my God.
You’re too old for this. Oh, Jesus! Help! Help! Help me, somebody! [ Cheers and applause ] [ Bell dinging ] -Oh, gosh. I haven’t wrestled
like that since last night. [ Laughter ]
It is about the — -No wonder you won
that People’s Choice Award. [ Laughter ] This man’s strong.
-Thank you very much. Appreciate that.
It is about — “The Current War” is about electricity,
and Westinghouse — -I play George Westinghouse, who’s a guy that not many people
know much about. You see his name everywhere
on, like, appliances and things. -Yeah.
-But he was a real guy. I’m sorry, I’m a little winded.
-Yeah, me, too. [ Laughter ]
I’m so happy you’re talking. -Right.
-‘Cause I’m real winded. -He kind of proved that you
don’t have to be, like, a total scumbag
to make mountains of money. That you can actually make a lot
of money and be a good guy. So I thought it was a very
important story to tell. -Everyone should see it.
It’s great.

    I loved the Current War. I wished it was released in more theaters and was better advertised because I had no clue on a lot of the story with Westinghouse or much about Edison’s family until I saw the film. I love the visuals explaining alternating current vs Direct Current.
