Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick get back into character as Bialystock and Bloom in a fake sequel to their musical The Producers, which debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s post-Oscars special on Sunday (February 28).
The spoof imagines the two producers helping out with the presidential campaign for Donald Trump.
“Max, do you realize that under the right circumstances it might be possible for us to make more money from a losing candidate than from a winner? First we find a bad candidate, then we raise money like crazy and we promise all the donors an ambassadorship, to Italy or Sweden or Armenia,” Matthew‘s character says.
“Then when the public figures out what a nutcase our guy is, he drops out of the race…” “… and we keep all the dough,” Nathan continues as Max. “This candidate, he’s gotta be the worst candidate in history. A real trainwreck, a schmuck, a putz, a grade-A world-class gold-plated nincompoop. Where would we ever find a buffoon like that?”
Make sure to watch the funny clip and catch the appearance of Cloris Leachman!
“Trumped” Starring Matthew Broderick & Nathan Lane
Jimmy Kimmel poses with Tracy Morgan and Mike Tyson while filming a fake sequel to the movie Creed for the Jimmy Kimmel Live post-Oscars special, which aired on Sunday night (February 28).
“I’ve been fighting my whole life,” Tracy‘s character says in the beginning of the spoof. “Fighting the people who said I couldn’t fight, fighting my demons, fighting the lady in the Wendy’s drive-thru ’cause she wouldn’t give me extra dipping sauce. All I asked for was extra honey mustard!”
Also appearing in the short film are J.K. Simmons, Al Michaels, and Sugar Ray Leonard!
“Clubber” – A Sequel to “Creed” Starring Tracy Morgan & Jimmy Kimmel
Matt Damon pops out of Ben Affleck‘s giant coat while making a special appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s post-Oscars special on Sunday night (February 28) in Hollywood.
The guys are longtime best friends and Matt, who is pretty much banned from appearing on the late night talk show in a running gag, used the opportunity to sneak onto the set.
“Well you know, you do the superhero and you get muscled and muscle turns to fat,” Ben said when Jimmy pointed out that he “ballooned up.”
After Matt popped out of the suit, Ben said he thinks it’s time for the guys to “bury the hatchet.” Jimmy was not having it and kicked Matt out of the studio after he tried sitting in the other seat on set.
Ben Affleck Sneaks Matt Damon Onto “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
The choice makes sense as ABC is airing the awards show this year and Jimmy hosted the broadcast the last time the network aired it as well. If you didn’t know, the Emmys rotate among the four major networks each year.
As the sole late night host on ABC, Jimmy has been the emcee of several award shows in the past, including the American Music Awards and the ESPYs.
