Joaquin Phoenix and Jimmy Fallon Trade Places

-I have a card here that says
three things on it.
And one of them may be true
and none of them may be true,
do you mind if I read these
-Are they things that I said?
You said these three things.
None of them may be true,
but I think I know one of them
must be true.
-This doesn’t seem real.
-No, it’s real.
-Okay. Let’s see.
-You can’t set him up for that.
-Okay well, you’ve watched the
movie “Step Brothers”
more than any other film.
Okay? That’s number one.
-You want me to sa–
-No, no, that’s number one.
-Am I just listening?
[ Laughter ]
-This is a listening show.
[ Laughs ]
Like, guests, come on
and listen to me talk.
-I feel like I’m being
hypnotized again.
-Welcome back to an all
new boring “Tonight Show.”
Alright. Number two —
You love reality TV
and think reality TV stars are
the best actors in the world.
[ Laughter ]
Number three,
one of your nicknames is kitten.
[ Laughter ]
All right, let me take a guess.
I’m gonna circle my answer,
then I’m going to
ask the audience,
then I’m going to ask you
what your thing is.
[ Mutters ] That, nah, you
wouldn’t do that.
That? Maybe, possibly, nah.
I’d say oh, you said that.
But you were being funny.
This is how, this is the game I
play with a you.
With a you.
Uh. Uh.
I’m going to say that one.
Audience, is it one?
-Nobody remembers what it was.
[ Laughter ]
-It was only 30 seconds ago,
what are you talking about?
What do you mean,
what number one?
-Can one person remember what
the first answer was?
-Alright look —
-“Step Brothers.”
-“Step Brothers.”
You’ve seen “Step Brothers” more
than any other film?
-You guys listen to him?
-I’ve never — Listen.
You’ve seen “Step Brothers” more
than any other film?
-Yeah, okay.
-Number two, you love reality TV
and think reality TV stars are
the best actors in the world.
Anyone on that one?
[ Cheering ]
-Number three, one of your
nicknames is kitten.
[ Cheers and applause ]
-So what does that mean?
-I circled number three.
One of your nicknames is kitten.
I think I believe that
to be true —
-Now, what are you saying that
it’s true
or that I said these things.
-I think that’s true.
-But I didn’t say it?
[ Laughter ]
-The more I think about this, I
mean I didn’t —
my segment producer set this
up for me.
The more I think about it,
I don’t know
if any of these are true.
But I call you Joaq.
Well, your name’s Joaquin I feel
like that’s too long for me.
-You can handle it.
I feel like you can handle it.
-I save a little energy
-You do the Monologue
every night.
-Yeah, but I save
a little energy by calling you
Joaq, don’t have to do the quin.
-You know?
-That’s a good part.
-Hello, Joaq.
-Oh, okay.
-You know? And I like guacs.
I like guacs. You know?
I like guac.
Hey, guac is extra.
That should be the —
That should’ve been the headline
of “Vanity Fair” —
the guac is extra.
-Yeah, good.
-Alright. I don’t know if any of
these are real or true or not.
But, do you know if any of these
are true?
-Um, what do you mean true?
That’s what I’m trying to
You say did I say these things
or are they true or both?
What is the question?
-The question is,
are any of these true?
Okay, I think that I said —
-No, it’s not about you said.
See you’re really good.
You’re honor, you’re honor.
He’s under oath.
-Okay, they’re not all true.
-We make you put your hand on a
Bible before you come out here.
-They’re not all true.
-They’re not all true, yeah.
But one might be true.
[ Laughter ]
And is the one
that might be true,
the one
that we all think is true.
Is one of your nicknames kitten?
[ Laughter ]
-You’re feeling very sleepy.
-[ Laughing ] Oh, my gaw!
That’s ridiculous.
-I don’t —
the two of them were —
I was just joking around.
-Yeah, I don’t “Step brothers,”
I assume you love that movie.
You didn’t see it more times
than any other film, though,
it’s impossible.
-I have.
-You really have?
-That’s the one?
-Yeah, it’s true.
-That’s the one?
That’s good, I like —
I love hearing that.
We got a little fact from
Joaquin, who knows if it’s real.
But that’s cool.
[ Laughter ]
I’ve seen
“Peewee’s Big Adventure”
more than any other film.
-Yeah, that’s a great one.
-Yeah it’s a classic.
Let’s talk about,
speaking of classics,
let’s talk “Joker.” Man, oh,
man, you’re awesome in this.
[ Cheers and applause ]
-I haven’t.
-You haven’t even seen it yet?
That’s what I was gonna say.
-People are excited about it.
-You’re fantastic in
it, it’s all you, man.
You’re driving this train, car?
What vehicle do you
think this movie is.
What type of —
form of transportation.
-[ Laughs ] I’m not sure.
-I’m sorry.
so look, so wait, no, I’m sorry.
So you didn’t, since you’re in
the movie. But it really is you.
And then I see you go a little
mad in some scenes.
I feel like you’ve gone nuts in
this thing.
You don’t pick these roles where
it’s like —
why don’t you just pick a role
where you just go to Hawaii
and you’re on the beach and
you’re goofing off
with your buddies?
-It’s like every actor’s dream
part, that’s the thing.
-You make it,
and then you do the movie.
-You go to Hawaii
and goof off with your buddies
for two hours.
-You’d be bored.
-You would be bored?
[Bleep] you need to do the laugh
and the whole thing
and you’re coughing,
don’t you think?
-You don’t need to do all that.
-You did it,
and then you did dance.
-Let me see the dance. That was
adorable. Show that to me.
-Dude, you’re really,
it’s insane.
You’re fantastic in it.
to set it up is you are —
it-it-it’s there is no, there
are no superheroes in this film?
It’s just kind of a making of a
that’s what I would —
if I was a film critic.
It’s not that great.
Is it off a little bit?
-I mean,
you’re great in general.
But that wasn’t the best.
-It wasn’t the best thing?
No, it’s about how you can beat
a human being down.
-But don’t tell anyone, it’s
okay let them just see it.
-Just see the movie?
-Or not.
-Or not. You know what the
movie’s about, kind of, right?
Yeah. So you don’t need me.
You don’t need me.
[ Talking over each other ]
-It’s cool.
-No, come back, come back.
Come on, man.
Oh, no, no, no, no. Come back!
Don’t do that.
[ Cheers and applause ]
-All right, welcome back.
we got a great guest tonight,
Jimmy Fallon.
[ Cheers and applause ]
All right, welcome back.
Alright. Sit right here
Come on in.
[ Cheers and applause ]
-It is, um.
It’s so funny.
-I’m reading your text messages
of somebody saying heavy.
-Well, I have to lose
a little weight.
I’m a little heavy, yeah.
But I got it figured out.
You lost weight for this film.
-And I read somewhere you
said you lost 50 pounds?
-No, 15. Wait did you say 50?
-Oh, who cares.
-Yeah, five-oh.
-No, one-five. 15.
-Oh, 15?
-They didn’t pay me that much.
[ Laughter ]
-Yeah, Well I’m just happy to be
here and talk about the film,
“Joker,” it was great to get in
there and, like, really —
[ Chatter ]
Yeah, yeah, don’t worry about
it, we’ll cut it out Later.
-Don’t tell, don’t tell them.
I didn’t know
the microphone was on.
-[ Clears throat ] Getting in
there, Todd, I call him T.P.
Todd Phillips. I call him T.P.
And he was kind of cool,
because he was like a teepee
to me a little bit, like,
he was my home for a long time.
I basically felt like I lived
inside of him,
when I was playing Joker.
And I’d come out of the teepee.
I was like, “Time to film.”
[ Laughter ]
I go, all right,
“What’s for breakfast, daddy?”
[ Laughter ]
-And he would get,
“What’s for breakfast
is this scene right here,
get into it.
And eat it all up.”
And I did.
I think what you’ll see here in
this clip is me
taking the script and making it
the best I can make it.
And thanks to T.P.’s work and
everybody involved in editing,
and the soundtrack
and everything.
It turned out pretty well and
I hope you enjoy it.


  1. You can tell Joaquin doesn’t even know which is true so he’s stalling this is the funniest thing, and then when Jimmy prompts him for an answer he just picks one lmao

  2. Had anyone seen the cringe worthy Kimmel interview about the joker. I thought for real he was going to get shot

  3. I dont understand why are they making a big deal about him playing the Joker, hes already weird in real life/

  4. I just noticed something insane.
    During this part of the interview 6:22 they just finished debating about Jimmy not talking about the movie and just letting the viewers go enjoy it, so when Jimmy gets up I think Joaquin thinks he is going to do something related to the movie, when the joker goes to the talk show and kills the host, that’s why he said “Don’t do that” and quickly jumped to Jimmy’s chair and started improvising as if Jimmy was a celeb invited to the show, so Jimmy instead of doing something that might spoil the movie he follows Joaquin’s joke as if he was the celeb being introduced on the show, listen how When Jimmy sits on the chair Joaquin quickly finds something to talk about, in this case about Jimmy’s phone messages. Also, I’m on acid.

  5. Jimmy Fallon is just a terrible talk show host, I can only imagine how hard it is to keep the audience entertained. But he’s awkward as fuck

  6. Fire the segment producer…there is a genius opportunity here with late night talk show scenes from the movie. Totally messed this one up.

  7. Honestly one of the worst interviews I have ever watched. It's only now that I undestand why this man gets so much hate in regard to his interviewing skills.

  8. See this is what Kimmel and Ellen need to learn from Jimmy. He doesn’t make bad jokes to embarrass his guest. That is exactly what they do to get laughs out of the audience and it’s so disrespectful

  9. Joaquin Phoenix Deserves a OSCAR!! Movie of the year!! Love the fact he's privet person!! Doesn't feed into Hollywood!!

  10. Jimmy…. I don’t think mr. Joaquin really likes you, or me for that matter. Your humor doesn’t work buddy, stop it. Or: mr. Joaquin likes him and I look at it the wrong way or: mr. Joaquin Phoenix just doesn’t like it.

  11. This is such an awkward interview lol jimmy Fallon and jimmy kimmel both make a few celebrities uncomfortable as I’ve seen in the past interviews
