Published by Darron Toy on


YOU KNOW I HAVEN’T SEEN YOU SINCE YOU’VE BECOME AN OSCAR WINNER, REGINA KING. >>I KNOW, SOME THINGS HAVE CHANGED.>>IS THAT HOW YOU PREFER TO BE ADDRESSED NOW IN ALL SITUATIONS?>>NO, I WOULD RATHER BE ADDRESSED AS THE REGINA SHOW THAT PREFERS JIMMY’S SHOW OVER GUILLERMO’S. >>Jimmy: THAT’S VERY NICE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >>HE DIDN’T GIVE ME A HAT. >>Jimmy: IT WOULD HAVE BEEN TOUGH TO PUT ON WITH THE THING OVER THERE, YEAH. CONGRATULATIONS BY THE WAY. CAN I ASK, THIS IS FEBRUARY YOU WON THE OSCAR, RIGHT? WHAT STICKS IN YOUR HEAD THE MOST FROM THAT NIGHT? WHEN YOU THINK BACK ON IT?>>OH, MAN, THERE ARE SO MANY MOMENTS. >>Jimmy: IS IT THE SPEECH, IS IT THE PARTIES?>>THERE’S SO MANY MOMENTS. I — YOU KNOW, YOU ASK ME THAT. ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS THAT COME TO MIND, LIKE YOU — WE WERE — WHEN WE’RE LEAVING, WE WERE IN LIKE THIS CORRIDOR. I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW WE GOT INTO THE CORRIDOR. BUT I’M WALKING THROUGH THIS CORRIDOR WITH SPIKE. AND IT’S JUST ME AND SPIKE.>>Jimmy: SPIKE LEE. >>SPIKE LEE. THAT WOULD BE THAT SPIKE. AND WE’RE JUST KIND OF WALKING HAND IN HAND. OSCARS ON EACH SIDE. AND JUST LOOKING AT EACH OTHER LIKE, WHAT THE — [ LAUGHTER ]>>Jimmy: YEAH.>>AND IT WAS — IT WAS KIND OF A PRICELESS MOMENT. ANOTHER MOMENT WAS — YOU KNOW, I GET TO THE GOVERNOR’S BALL WHERE THEY LIKE ENGRAVE YOUR OSCAR. AND I HAD TO TAKE OFF MY SHOES. >>Jimmy: RIGHT.>>YOU KNOW, THE FEET WERE HURTING. I JUST FELT LIKE MY GRANDMOTHER WAS LOOKING LIKE, NOT JUST SHOES, DON’T TAKE THE SHOES OFF.>>Jimmy: SHE WOULD NOT APPROVE OF TAKING THE SHOES OFF?>>I WAS LIKE JUST, GRANDMA, WON AN OSCAR. >>Jimmy: YOU HAD AN ARGUMENT WITH YOUR DECEASED GRANDMOTHER. >>YES, WE DO THAT SOMETIMES. >>Jimmy: RIGHT, YEAH. YOU HAVE TO. WHO WAS IN YOUR OSCAR NIGHT ENTOURAGE, WHO CAME WITH YOU?>>I HAD A SMALL ENTOURAGE. MY SISTER. MY MOTHER. MY SON.>>Jimmy: OH, THAT’S GREAT. >>SOME OF MY AGENTS.>>Jimmy: DID YOU STAY OUT LATE WITH THEM?>>NOT ALL OF THEM. >>Jimmy: WHO LEFT EARLY?>>MY MOM. WE GOT TO THE “VANITY FAIR” PARTY. SHE WAS LIKE, I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU GUYS THINK THIS IS FUN. [ LAUGHTER ]>>Jimmy: THAT’S NOT HER THING AT ALL?>>YEAH, YEAH, YEAH. >>Jimmy: SHE WENT HOME. THEN YOU — AND NOW YOU’VE GOT IT. AND NOW THAT YOU’RE AN OSCAR WINNER HAS YOUR LIFE CHANGED? I KNOW YOU LIKE TO GO TO COSTCO. ARE YOU GOING TO COSTCO ANYMORE? IS THAT NOW –>>OH, YEAH. THAT’S NEVER — >>Jimmy: YOU WILL STILL DO THAT?>>OH, ABSOLUTELY, COSTCO, 99 CENT STORE. >>Jimmy: OH, 99 CENT STORE? DO YOU REALLY GO TO THE 99 CENT STORE?>>LOOK, 99 CENT STORE HAS BRAND NAME TOOTHBRUSHES FOR A DOLLAR. >>Jimmy: OH! [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] BRAND NAME? WHY ARE THOSE SAME TOOTHBRUSHES $3.49 AT CVS?>>I DON’T KNOW. LIKE THIS LADY SAW ME, SHE WAS LIKE, REGINA KING? WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THE 99 CENT STORE? I WAS LIKE, I LIKE A BARGAIN TOO.>>Jimmy: YEAH, I MEAN, WHY WOULD YOU CHEAT YOURSELF OUT OF THAT?>>DOLLAR TOOTHBRUSHES. >>Jimmy: THE 99 CENT STORE. I IMAGINE YOU MIGHT BE THE ONLY OSCAR WINNER THAT DOES THAT. >>MAYBE, OR MAY NOT. I MEAN, YOU KNOW. THERE’S 99 CENT STORES EVERYWHERE. >>Jimmy: I HEAR YOU WENT TO ITALY FOR THE FIRST TIME LAST MONTH. >>I DID. >>Jimmy: THAT’S FUN, OR WAS IT?>>IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.>>I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU’VE NEVER BEEN THERE BEFORE. >>I COULDN’T BELIEVE IT EITHER.>>Jimmy: WHERE DID YOU GO?>>FLORENCE AND MILAN. >>Jimmy: NICE, BEAUTIFUL. YOU HAD A GOOD TIME?>>I HAD AN AMAZING TIME. I HAVE TO SAY — THIS IS MY IGNORANCE. I FOR WHATEVER REASON THOUGHT ALL OF THE ART WAS IN ROME FOR SOME REASON. I JUST ASSUMED THAT. AND THEN MY AGENT WAS LIKE, “THE LAST SUPPER,” IT’S IN MILAN, YOU SHOULD MAKE SURE YOU CATCH IT WHEN YOU GET THERE.>>Jimmy: DID YOU GO?>>I DID. BUT I DIDN’T — >>Jimmy: IT’S WEIRD THE WAY IT’S SET UP. >>I DIDN’T REALIZE — IT IS A BIG — YOU KNOW, IF YOU DON’T LIKE PREPARE — >>Jimmy: YOU HAVE TO GET A TICKET. >>YOU HAVE TO GET A TICKET EARLY IF YOU JUST WANT TO SEE “THE LAST SUPPER.” THEY WERE ALL SOLD OUT. SO I BOUGHT A TOUR JUST SO I COULD SEE “THE LAST SUPPER.” SO I SHOWED UP AT THE END OF THE TOUR. BUT I WAS ALMOST LATE. AND I WAS THERE WITH ME. >>Jimmy: YOU ALMOST MISSED SUPPER AND IT WAS THE LAST ONE. [ LAUGHTER ]>>I WAS ALMOST LATE FOR DINNER, YEAH. >>Jimmy: IT IS AWESOME TO BE THAT CLOSE TO IT, RIGHT?>>BREATHTAKING. ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING. >>Jimmy: WHAT’S THE BEST THING YOU ATE IN ITALY? THE SINGLE BEST ITEM YOU CONSUMED DURING YOUR TIME THERE.>>JIMMY, I CAN’T NARROW IT DOWN TO ONE. >>Jimmy: ANYTHING JUMP OUT?>>NO. I LIKE BACKED IT UP LIKE A GARBAGE TRUCK. [ LAUGHTER ] BEEP, BEEP! BRING IT ON!>>Jimmy: I LIKE THAT, YEAH. I KNOW A PERSON WHO I STILL WON’T SPEAK TO WHO WAS LIKE, I’M SO PROUD OF MYSELF. I WENT TO ITALY, I DIDN’T HAVE ONE BITE OF PASTA. I ATE NO CARBS. I WAS LIKE, WELL, IT WAS NICE KNOWING YOU. [ LAUGHTER ]>>I WAS ABOUT TO SAY, NO, DON’T TELL ME THAT PERSON, YEAH. >>Jimmy: WE’RE GOING TO TAKE A BREAK. WHEN WE COME BACK, WE WILL SEE A CLIP FROM THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED “WATCHMEN” WITH REGINA KING. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK.>>>YOU ARE MAD THAT MY SITTER BAILED AND YOU HAD TO SUFFER THROUGH BLACK OKLAHOMA WITHOUT HAVING SOMEONE TO ROLL YOUR EYES AT. >>SITTER BAILED?>>YES. >>WELL, BLACK OKLAHOMA WAS DELIGHTFUL.>>YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CALL IT THAT. >>YOU’RE GOING TO GIVE ME THE SPEECH NOW?>>WHAT SPEECH?>>ABOUT HOW I’M OVERREACTING BY CALLING ARTICLE 4, I SHOULD CALM DOWN, TAKE A BREATH?>>THERE’S A GUY IN MY TRUNK.>>Jimmy: OH, THAT’S GOOD. REGINA KING IN “WATCHMEN.”>>WITH THAT CLIP FOR THE TRUE FANS OF THE GRAPHIC NOVEL, THERE WAS AN EASTER EGG IN THERE. >>Jimmy: OH, AN EASTER EGG, I’M GOING TO HAVE TO REVIEW THAT AGAIN. THE GRAPHIC NOVEL IS LIKE A HALLOWED PIECE OF LITERATURE. IT REALLY IS. MAYBE THE MOST CELEBRATED GRAPHIC NOVEL OF ALL TIME. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT FROM THAT IS IN THIS SHOW, WHAT ISN’T IN THE SHOW. WHAT IS IN THE SHOW, WHAT ISN’T IN THE SHOW?>>UM — HAVE [ LAUGHTER ] I’M IN THE SHOW.>>Jimmy: WE KNOW THAT. DAMON LINDELOF, WHO CREATED THIS TELEVISION SHOW, WHEN DID TWO OF THE BEST TELEVISION SHOWS EVER. “LOST” AND “THE LEFTOVERS.” YOU WERE ON “THE LEFTOVERS.” I KNOW HE HAS THIS THING WHERE HE DOESN’T NECESSARILY WANT TO LIKE USE THE SAME ACTORS FROM PROJECT TO PROJECT. BUT WITH YOU HE COULDN’T RESIST.>>HE BROKE THAT RULE. >>Jimmy: HE BROKE THE RULE. HOW DID HE PRESENT THIS TO YOU?>>HE DID NOT SEND THE SCRIPT TO ANY OF MY REPS. HE HAD IT LIKE DELIVERED TO ME WITH JUST THIS AWESOME NOTE THAT SAID — HE EXPLAINED THIS WAS HIS NEXT PROJECT. I WAS NOT AWARE WHAT “WATCHMEN” WAS. I’LL BE HONEST. HE SAID, I WANT TO GO ON THIS JOURNEY WITH YOU, IF YOU WILL. I’M LOOKING AT THIS SCRIPT. THERE’S LIKE THIS ENVELOPE PEEKING OUT OF A CERTAIN PAGE. AND OF COURSE I GO STRAIGHT TO THAT PAGE. AND THERE’S — ON THE NFL HE SAYS, REGINA, DON’T OPEN THIS TILL YOU GET TO THIS PAGE. DON’T CHEAT. EXCLAMATION MARK, EXCLAMATION MARK, EXCLAMATION MARK. I WANTED TO CHEAT.>>Jimmy: RIGHT, YEAH. RIGHT, YEAH. DID YOU?>>I DIDN’T, I DIDN’T. >>Jimmy: OKAY.>>AND I READ AND I WAS JUST BLOWN AWAY BY WHAT I WAS READING. IF I TOLD YOU WHAT I WAS READING I’D BE GIVING SOME THINGS UP. >>Jimmy: IN THE NFL? OR IN THE –>>NO, IN THE SCRIPT, IN THE SCRIPT. WHEN I GOT TO THAT PART, YOU GUYS WILL SEE, IT’S A CERTAIN MOMENT IN THE PILOT. AND I OPENED IT UP. AND IT WAS AN ARTIST RENDERING WITH MY FACE OF SISTER NIGHT. >>Jimmy: AH. >>YEAH. >>Jimmy: AND THAT EXCITED YOU. >>WHAT? [ LAUGHTER ]>>Jimmy: HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A SUPERHERO?>>I HAVE, I HAVE. I MEAN, WHO HASN’T? RIGHT?>>Jimmy: I GUESS YOU’RE RIGHT, YEAH. NO, I’VE NEVER WANTED TO BE A SUPERHERO. [ LAUGHTER ]>>YOU HAVE. >>Jimmy: YEAH, EVERYONE’S WANTED TO BE A SUPERHERO. NOW YOU ARE. >>I AM. >>Jimmy: I’M VERY EXCITED TO SEE THIS. THE GRAPHIC NOVEL IS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS EVER. AND I THINK YOU’RE IN VERY GOOD HANDS AND VICE VERSA HERE. >>YEAH. I’M IN VERY GOOD HANDS AND THOSE HANDS FOLLOW ME EVERYWHERE.>>Jimmy: THEY DO. THAT SOUNDS INCRIMINATING IN A WAY. >>YES, IT DOES. >>Jimmy: MAYBE YOU’LL SEE PEOPLE DRESSED UP AS YOU FOR HALLOWEEN. >>MAYBE, MAYBE. >>Jimmy: THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING. >>THAT WOULD BLOW MY MIND. >>Jimmy: IT’S GREAT TO SEE YOU. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE IT. IT’S “WATCHMEN.” IT PREMIERES OCTOBER 20th, 9:00, HBO. REGINA KING, EVERYBODY! WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Kyle Oxenham · October 11, 2019 at 8:05 am

Here are some ways to connect Regina to Kevin Bacon:
1. Regina King was in Jerry Maguire with Tom Cruise, who was in A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon.
2. Regina King was in Daddy Day Care with Eddie Murphy, who was in Shrek with John Lithgow, who was in Footloose with Kevin Bacon.
Those are just two I can think of.
