Kelly: Hello.

Ryan: Thank you so much, guys. Good morning.

Kelly: Yeah, that's nice. Tuesday, March 19, 2019. Welcome, everybody.

Ryan: It's Tuesday. So this is really funny, and I do believe it's true, 'cause I remember my dad would do this too. What can science tell us about dad jokes?

Do you feel, as you get older, that you make cheesier jokes, as a father? Your husband does. So they say that dads generate these--and gravitate to these cheesier puns and jokes to be closer to their children.

Those in the field of positive psychology agree that humor can aid in intimacy and in reducing stress. So that is why, naturally, you are gravitating towards these jokes.

Kelly: Do you know what's interesting? I've been in my husband's family long enough that I am watching Mark turn into his dad. And I'm watching the jokes that I first heard when I was dating Mark come out of his dad's mouth where Mark was like, "Oh, my God," horrified and embarrassed.

Ryan: Now he's owning them.

Kelly: Now he's the one doing it in front of, like, our daughter, and she's like, "Oh, my God."

Ryan: Yeah.


Kelly: It's so funny.

Ryan: It's true.

Kelly: And even the inflection and--

Ryan: It's all the same cadence?

Kelly: It's all the same--

Ryan: And everything he made fun of his dad doing, he's now doing it.

Kelly: He's doing it, yeah.

Ryan: My dad does the same one every time we go out to dinner. You just wait for it to come. So he gets the bill. He reads the bill. "Ah, seems fair for 30 people," meaning we ordered too much as a family.

So he wants us to feel guilty that we ordered the salad and an entree, because he thinks the total should be worth the whole dining room.

Kelly: Right.

Ryan: But you know it's coming, and you're just waiting for it, and it's just that we've heard this every Friday night we've gone to La Paz.

Kelly: Anyway, that's funny. I'm glad to hear that dad humor does serve a purpose, because, um-- beyond just embarrassing.

Ryan: Peter, be warned. Last paragraph. New research stated--it suggested people who just can't stop delivering puns and dad jokes might suffer from frontal lobe injuries.

So it could be just--you'll walk up right to the line, and don't hurt the lobe, okay?

Kelly: I better, uh--

Ryan: Protect your lobe.

Kelly: I better check out Mark's lobe. I always--I thought his lobe was fine, but now--sometimes he seems to have no brake for it. I'm like, "Okay, he gets it." Like, we were in Mexico.

I'll give you--this is, like, dad humor without the kids. We went to our friend's 50th birthday party. We stayed at this resort where there are flags. If you put up a green flag, that meant you wanted, like, a drink, and if you put up the red flag, it meant you're fine.

And Mark goes--and Mark says...


It's so dumb! He goes, "Where's the flag for if your wife is being mean to you?"

Ryan: [laughs]

Put them both--just put them, like, up and down. Sos!

Kelly: But he said it in Spanish, and then the guy was like, "I don't understand your Spanish." And I was like, "See? The joke's on you."

Ryan: Here's the flag for that.

Gelman: "I give up."

Ryan: "I surrender."


In our cups in the morning, we have--

Kelly: Vodka.

Ryan: Right. We have water. Sometimes I have two cups, and I've been asked, "Why two cups?" And that's because Sam, who drives me in in the morning, he's Egyptian, and he makes these ancient Egyptian teas.

And he'll make me the tea sometimes.

Kelly: Wait, now you said they're ancient Egyptian? 'Cause before they were just Egyptian, but now they're ancient Egyptian teas?

Ryan: It's a fishing story.

Kelly: Like, are they coming from...

Ryan: They're coming by boat from--by land, by boat to port. I think they're ancient recipes, but anyway they're very good, so sometimes I have two cups.

However, in this cup, it's actually cold water today. But they say, for the most part, drinking room-temperature water is better for you.

Kelly: Well, my--you know, my parents and my in-laws are big room-temperature water drinkers to the point where I call the restaurant ahead of time, and I'm like, "Look, I got four room-temperature people coming."

Ryan: "Prepare."

Kelly: "So--and they just want it room temperature, so just please, no ice water."

Ryan: Room-temperature water can make you less thirsty. It aids in digestion. Cold water can give you a headache. Now, what I was told-- as I burp up my water--

Kelly: I know; it's weird. It's like the older you get...

Ryan: The more is coming out.

Kelly: The more you need to burp all the time.

Ryan: Right? Well, at least there's two of us to cover any dead air when we're burping. But I was told that before a meal, you should drink a warm cup of lemon water, which fills you up and opens up your digestion so that it allows you to probably eat less and also have smoother digestion, but not to drink--not to drink water during your meal, like while you're eating.

Kelly: Really?

Ryan: 'Cause that messes up the flow.

Kelly: Is that true?

Ryan: Yeah.

Gelman: Too much water--

Ryan: Too much water messes up your digestion, 'cause I always thought, "Drink a ton of water while you're eating."

Kelly: Yeah, drink the water while you're eating. It helps move it down.

Ryan: They say it's better to drink the warm before and really not drink water while you eat and then afterwards again.

Kelly: Oh, God.

Ryan: Listen, you want to live a long time?

Kelly: Listen, remember when people just used to live?


Ryan: We have too much information now.

Kelly: How are we still here?


Ryan: It's true. It's too much pressu-- all of this information's giving me stress.

Kelly: We used to have-- I'm not kidding. Fourth of July, we would drink the cream soda out of the bottom of the--we'd get the garbage, the garbage bin, where they put the garbage.

And my dad would rinse it out.

Ryan: With a hose.

Kelly: With a hose. And he'd put ice in there and a bunch of cream sodas. I don't know--cream soda was on sale, I guess. Cream soda. And you'd have that with your blackened-- and I don't mean blackened intentionally; I mean blacked 'cause it was left there all day--chicken thigh, okay?

Just barbecued until it was like chicken jerky, practically, right? We lived.

Ryan: Yeah, you survived.

Kelly: We're here! Here I am, right?

Ryan: You paint such a lovely picture of your childhood.


Kelly: It was the '70s. See, you were slightly younger.

Ryan: As a child of the '90s, I can only imagine...


What it must be like...

Kelly: All I know is, that one--like, that one little window is the difference between, like, vitamins versus safety belts versus a moon roof. Like, we had the safety belt versus moon roof option.

Ryan: Right.

Kelly: One or the other. My parents were like, "Moon roof. That way, the kids can stand up and hang their heads out of the car."

Ryan: We used to sit-- we used to sit in the back of the station wagon where the whole back window would come down backwards, and you could just hang out.

"Hey!" I mean, that was living. And we made it. Hey, today on the show, Jimmy Fallon is here.

[Cheers and applause]

A little premature, Gelman.

[Cheers and applause continue]

Yay for Jimmy Fallon.

Kelly: John David Washington is also here.

Ryan: And from "To All the Boys I've Loved Before," Lana Condor is here as all.

Kelly: [laughs]

Plus, we join The Big Apple Circus. Are you sure we haven't done it already?


With Duo Fusion, yes. We're gonna be-- that was premature--

Ryan: I think we blew our batch here, didn't we?

Kelly: We blew our batch.

Ryan: I think our batch is blown. It's time for Grow For It Travel Trivia. Our batch is blown.

[Upbeat music]

[Cheers and applause]

Ryan: That is Karin Hertzel from Preston, Virginia.

Kelly: Great job.

Ryan: Thanks for coming today. All right, let's say hello to Laura Bloyd from Arvada, Colorado, who watches us on fox31 in Denver. Laura, good morning.

Caller: Good morning. I love you guys so much!

Ryan: Oh, thank you.

Kelly: We love you too. Who's your friend in the picture?

Caller: That's my new boyfriend.

No. [laughs]

Kelly: He's adorable.

Caller: Thank you.

Ryan: What is he really?

Kelly: Where are you in this picture?

Caller: I'm sorry?

Kelly: Where are you in the photo?

Caller: I actually got to go to Cancun for a friend's wedding, and it was my first vacation without my children, and it was so awesome.


Ryan: And you hooked up with a statue, all right.

Caller: I did. [laughs]

Kelly: You got to be careful with those vacations. Mark and I took an anniversary trip for three days without the children, and we got another child that way.


Ryan: I don't think that would be possible with that stick figure I saw.

Kelly: [laughs]

You never know.

Ryan: Watch out for splinters. We're gonna have 60 seconds on the clock to figure out which of these is true. If you stump us, you get the mug, all right?

Caller: Okay.

Ryan: Here we go. The first one is, "The first time I parachuted out of an airplane was in college" or "The first time I went waterskiing was in college." Set the clock, and here we go.

Gelman: Okay.

Caller: Okay.

Kelly: Well, let's see. Um, where did you parachute out of an airplane?

Caller: In Nebraska. I went to college in Nebraska.

Ryan: And how many times have you gone parachuting since the first time?

Caller: None

Since the first time. [laughs]

Kelly: And, oh, where did you go waterskiing?

Caller: It was in Nebraska too.

Kelly: Okay, where in Nebraska?

Caller: I was going to college at Lincoln at that time, and it was at one of the lakes around Lincoln, Nebraska. I think it was Pioneer or something.

Kelly: Uh-huh.

Ryan: Okay, I think-- well, let's see what the audience thinks here.

Kelly: Yeah.

Caller: Parachuting.

Ryan: Yeah, for sure, 'cause she said something that was a telltale...

Kelly: What?

Ryan: 'Cause it says, "The first time I parachuted," and she said that was the only time she parachuted, so I think she stumped herself, meaning we stumped her, right?

Did you hear that?

Kelly: I don't know what that means. What?

Ryan: I'm gonna lock it in. Let's lock it in.

Kelly: That's, like, backwards mentality, though. You just said the opposite of what you're saying.

Ryan: No, what she said-- stop the clock. The clock makes us crazy.

Kelly: Yes.

Ryan: We think it's true that the first time you parachuted out of an airplane was in college.

Caller: I'm sorry, no. I waterskied the first time in college.

Gelman: Ah, you get a mug!

Ryan: Liar.

[Cheers and applause]

Caller: I won! I won a mug!

Ryan: You have stumped us, so you win the mug. Congratulations.

Caller: Thank you.

Ryan: I can't think with that clock.

[Cheers and applause]

Caller: Awesome. Thank you.

Ryan: We got a good trip.

Kelly: Oh, yeah, the Tanque Verde Ranch in Tucson, Arizona.

[Cheers and applause]

Ryan: Ooh.

Kelly: Seven days, six nights, all-inclusive. This trip is valued at $6,500. You have 20 seconds and only 1 guess. Good luck, Laura.

Caller: Thank you!

Ryan: Okay, Laura, we've had actor Oscar Isaac on the show. In what sci-fi fantasy series of films did we say Oscar has starred in?

Caller: Oh, my God.

Ryan: It's a big one.

Kelly: Big one.

[Suspenseful music]

Caller: I want to say it, and I'm scared to say it.

Ryan: Just don't be scared.

Kelly: Just either Google it or say it.

Ryan: You got 9 seconds.

Caller: Um, um, sci-fi?

Ryan: No, is it--

Caller: Is it x-Men?

Ryan: No. No, no, no, no. Star Wars.

Kelly: Star Wars.

Caller: I was gonna say that. Oh, darn. Thank you so much.

Ryan: Well, that's all right. You still win something.

Kelly: That's okay. You don't have to thank us.

Ryan: You got the mug.

Caller: Oh, I got the mug. I'm so excited. Thank you guys so much, and I love you so much.

Audience: Aw!

Gelman: There's more.

Ryan: But wait, there's more.

Kelly: There is more, but I feel terrible about this.

Ryan: It's still 500 bucks' worth.

Kelly: But she thanked us for the mug.

Caller: [laughs]

I get to have my coffee in it every morning.

Kelly: Yeah.

Ryan: Ah.

Kelly: Yeah, that's true.


Laura, you're still gonna get another prize. You and a lucky member of our studio audience will each receive a $500 appliance package from Cuisinart. You can get a coffee maker to put in your mug.

How about that? So please pick a number...

Caller: Ooh, thank you. Thank you.

Kelly: 1 and 120. 220, 1 and 220.

Caller: Um, 208.

Gelman: 208!

Ryan: Where's 208?

[Cheers and applause]

Right there. Congratulations.

[Cheers and applause]

Hey, Laura, have a great day. Thanks for watching us.

[Cheers and applause]

We're back with Jimmy Fallon.

Announcer: Still ahead on "Live," Kelly and Ryan perform with The Big Apple Circus, actress Lana Condor, John David Washington, and, coming up next, Jimmy Fallon.

Hey, Neighbor. Well, if it isn't the second most famous groundhog in Pennsylvania. Wow, you were some athlete. Back in the day, G. Well, you can still go for gold...

Ahh, Golden 777, the new Instant Game from the Pennsylvania Lottery. With top prizes of a hundred grand. See, you still got game, Dwayne. I got Instant Game, Gus.

Instant Game. (giggles) Keep on scratchin'.

Kelly: Now he's the incredibly funny and extremely talented host of "The Tonight Show." Please welcome back to "Live" Jimmy Fallon.

[Cheers and applause]

[Upbeat music]

Kelly: Hi.

>> Hi.

Ryan: How you doing, brother?

>> I made it. Funkytown. I love it. Hi, guys!

Ryan: Good to see you, man.

>> Great to see you guys. Looking good.

Kelly: Nobody we would want to cuddle up with more than you.

>> Thank you so much.

Ryan: Are you a romantic guy? Is that sort of--

>> A little bit. Yeah, why not? I mean, I don't know.

Kelly: Nancy seems pretty happy. Every time I see her, she seems like she's a happy lady.

>> Yeah, I mean, I do little romantic things here and there. My proposal was a little off. That was not the best, 'cause it's such a weird moment, 'cause you know what's gonna happen.

You know you're gonna get married, but-- so I had the ring already. And, you know, she's a producer, lives in la when we were dating. And so she came to New York, opened the door, and she goes, "I have a surprise for you." And I go, "Oh, I hope it doesn't mess with my surprise, 'cause I have a real big surprise." She's like, "I got you reservations" at this restaurant that I've been dying to go to.

It was, like, a real expensive place. I go, "Great." I go, "I really do want to go there, but I don't want to get engaged at the restaurant, because what if it closes?" Restaurants go out of business, and now it's going to re-open.

It's going to be, like, a laser tag place or strip club or something. Then I got to be with my kids and go, "Mommy and Daddy got engaged there." And they go, "Why?" So I go, "Maybe I'll do it after dinner." So I go to dinner.

Cut to--I'm not kidding-- 14 courses later.

Kelly: Oh, no.

>> The longest dinner I've ever had in my life. I'm wasted drunk, and I'm like, "I don't know if I can do this. It's not the right time." So I go, "You know, I'll just wait until the right time, you know?" And then it never got around--

Ryan: So you carried the ring to--

>> I knew where it was in my apartment. I had a tiny apartment here in New York City, and I knew where it was. It was burning a hole through, like, this closet.

It was hiding there. I waited six months...

Kelly: No!

>> To do it. And her parents--I already asked her dad for permission, so every time I would talk to them on the phone, they'd be like, "And?" I'd go, "And nothing.

It's all good." They go, "We're just calling to say hi." "Yeah." "And any news?" I'm like, "No news." So then I decided--her family has a summer house on the lake for 100 years, 100-year-old house, and so I did it there on the dock, Lake Winnipesaukee.

I thought it'd be sweet. But I said--I go, "Look," I said, "Don't cry when you do it. Let her cry." 'Cause I'm a very emotional person, and I didn't want to, like--so I said, "When you do it, just have her, you know, be emotional." So I go, "Great" in my head.

I'm pumping myself up. So I go up to her, and I get on one knee, and I immediately start crying.


I go, "When two people-- when two people--" She's like--it's like a Bobcat Goldthwait impression. She thought I was having a stroke. "Are you okay?" I went, "Oh, yeah, I love you."


Ryan: That's a very good Bobcat, though.

>> Thank you. It was so embarrassing. She said yes, but I was an emotional wreck.

Kelly: That's a good engagement story.

>> It was rough. It was rough.

Ryan: How are your kids?

>> We have two kids, five and four, Winnie and Franny, and I love them so much.

Ryan: How cute.

>> Oh, it's the best thing in the world. I love them so much. They wake up at five and four. They wake up as their age, yeah. They keep coming into bed with me now.

I'm like--I just love sleep so much. I never realized how much I really love sleep.

Ryan: Until you're disturbed by them.

Kelly: Can I give you something to look forward to when they are teenagers? You will have to wake them. They become like dead bodies. And so you have to literally hold a mirror under their nose like a newborn, like, "Is she still breathing?"

>> Really?

Kelly: Yeah.

>> That's what Nancy said too.

Kelly: You will get to sleep again.

>> I know what time it is by where my baby's feet are in the bed. I wake up, and her feet-- it's just--I mean, but she's so tiny and cute, but she rotates in the bed like a clock, yeah.

Ryan: Clockwise. Did we take them skiing? Are they skiing at their age?

>> My wife knows how to ski. I'm terrible. I don't really know. But it's a very cute Instagram photo.

Kelly: Great photo.

>> But, you know, it took hours to get that photo.


Hours. Like, no one would look at the camera. You know, someone had to go to the bathroom. But they're really good, and, like, they're learning how to ski, which is amazing, 'cause I never knew how to do any of that stuff.

And I'm so stiff. I'm from Brooklyn, New York. My parents--we don't ski.

>> Whoo!

>> Thank you. No one knows how to ski. They don't do anything outdoors. They do nothing. So when I ski, like, my wife, she's like Suzy Chapstick. Like, she just looks cool, and she's great.

And I'm like this when I'm skiing. I'm so tense, I look like Jerry Lewis and was like, "Oh!" But I remember I went and got-- I got a massage the first day, which is--I don't even get massages, really.

So I went and got a massage. I go, "Great." They go, "Were you skiing all day?" I go, "I was." They go, "What's sore?" I go, "My arms." They go, "Your arms are sore?" They go, "Oh, you're doing this totally wrong." But I guess I'm just so tense--

Ryan: You're squeezing the poles so tight.

>> I'm squeezing the poles.


They're like, "Sir, you're bumming everyone out. Please leave the mountain. You're ruining everyone's vacation."

Ryan: We're gonna take a break. When we come back, Jimmy tells about a very special anniversary in his life right after this.

Announcer: Still ahead on "Live," from "To All the Boys I've Loved Before," actress Lana Condor.

I'm an ice cruncher. So I was excited about All-New Colgate Total. It has sensitivity relief, So I don't have to give up doing what I love. Aren't we lucky.

New Colgate Total. Do more for your whole mouth.

[Lively band music]

>> That was so fun.

Kelly: You did the show in Puerto Rico.

>> Puerto Rico.

Kelly: Isn't it so fun?

>> It was unbelievable.

Kelly: Best audiences.

>> It was the best, best, best. You know, we got--I got inspired by Lin-Manuel Miranda, was bringing "Hamilton" down to Puerto Rico. And so we heard that he was doing that, and we're like, "We got to do something." And--

Kelly: You said, "I'll finally get tickets to see the show."

>> Finally, I get in to see "Hamilton"! Finally. And we went down, and I got to tell you, the gratitude and just people coming up to you and hugging me, and people were crying, and it just meant so much to Puerto Rico for us to go down there.

And it's just--if you want to go on vacation, go to Puerto Rico. It is open for business. It is the best. You don't need a passport. You just go there.

Kelly: Best people.

>> It's just really great. It's a good way to donate and give back to them. But it's open for business. The food was great.

Ryan: How was the ziplining? You did ziplining. Was that terrifying?

>> It was the dumbest, worst-- I will never--but, I mean, go to Puerto Rico, but don't--

Ryan: Don't go ziplining?

>> I will never in my life do a zipline again. I was so frightened.

Kelly: That's a very historically long zipline, right?

>> It's the second longest in the world.

Ryan: Didn't you do it--

Kelly: I've done it everywhere.

Ryan: Yeah, okay. We're a ziplining-- we're zipliners.

>> Dude, I went. I go--you go down the first one almost like Superman, and you're going down like... And the air is hitting your face, and it's just awful, just absolutely awful.

And you go 90 miles an hour. I get to the end of the thing. I'm just so embarrassed, but, I mean, it's kind of-- it's good to see, like, all the mountains and everything.

Kelly: All the mountains flying by.

>> Yeah, like a jungle underneath me. So I get down to the bottom, and they go--I go, "That was great. We got it on camera. That's good for the show. Great, that's good.

Let's go." He goes, "No, you got to do one more zipline." I go, "What are you talking about? I just did the zipline." They go, "Oh, you got to do one more to get to the vehicle to take you home." I go, "What's my options?" He goes, "There is no options.

You're in the jungle." I go, "I don't want to"-- He goes, "This one, though, you have to--you harness, and you kind of sit into it, and you lean back."

Ryan: Like a satchel.

Kelly: Yeah, well, to me, that's less terrifying than what you did.

>> The Superman one.

Kelly: Superman is terrifying.

>> No, this was terrifying, because he goes, "Look, do not let the cable hit your face."

Kelly: That is--

>> "It will burn--it will burn your face." I go, "This is what people do for fun? It's going to burn my face?" "And don't touch it with your glove; it'll burn through your glove too." I go, "I'm not touching anything, dude."

Ryan: "Just push me down."

>> "Just throw my blob of a body down this thing." So I'm with Tariq from The Roots, and so Tariq goes, "I'll just do it." So they put him on it, and he goes down, and you hear, like...

[Mimics zipline whirring]

Into the abyss and then silence. I'm like, "Well, he's dead."


I go--they go--he goes, "You have to control with the carabiner. You have to control, 'cause you do not want to spin." I go, "I don't know what I'm doing, man." I am so upset right now.

So I go--I get on this thing. I go, "All right, go." He pushes me.

It goes...[mimics zipline whir]

Immediately, I start spinning. So I'm immediately spinning. I'm, like, trying to turn the thing back. It's just awful. And I'm going down to the bottom.

I see I'm, like, 30 feet away from the dudes at the bottom, and they're all waving and pointing at I don't know what. And they're going, "The cable! The cable!" I'm like, "I was told not to touch the cable!

What are you talking about?" So I don't know what he meant. So anyways, I start losing speed. I come to a complete stop on the line, and I start going backwards back up the mountain.

I go, "What's happening right now?" This guy gets a helmet on, comes in and grabs me, comes over. I'm not kidding. He goes, "Wrap your legs around me. Wrap your legs." I go, "What's going on right now?" And he scissors me to safety, and it was completely embarrassing, and I still can't even look.

I'll never go ziplining again.

Ryan: Book your trip now.

>> Go to Puerto Rico.

Kelly: Don't forget to go to Puerto Rico. Now, listen--

Ryan: Tell me, Kel. Tell us.

Kelly: Who knows their love songs better, okay? These are two very romantic men who know a lot about music.

Ryan: That's right.

Kelly: When we come back, Ryan Seacrest is gonna take on Jimmy Fallon, okay?

Ryan: Love songs.

[Cheers and applause]

Kelly: Treasures.

>> Are you ready for this? I'm scared. I'm a little scared.

Ryan: I think it's gonna be good. Romance. Romance after the break. Stay with us.

Ryan: Good to see you. Welcome.

>> Oh, my God, thank you for having me.

Ryan: Great to have you with us.

Kelly: You look like a fashionista.

>> Ah, thank you.

Ryan: Yeah, you could be attending the shows.

Kelly: Yeah, have you been going to the shows?

>> I went to two, yeah, two shows.

Kelly: And what was it like? Did you have Ryan's experience, where you couldn't cross your legs?

>> Well, you know what? It was my first Fashion Week, and so I didn't know what to expect, but when I got there, like, you really sit so close to people.

It is shoulder to shoulder, and so I was just sitting there like this.

Ryan: [laughs]

>> And it goes by like this.

Kelly: And did you smile, or did you make sure you had your serious fashion face on?

>> I tried to look pleasant and approachable, so I was like:

Ryan: "Pleasant and approachable."

Kelly: That's good.

>> [Laughs]

Ryan: We try and live our lives pleasant and approachable. That's perfect. "Live": Pleasant and approachable.

Kelly: So tell me about where you grew up. You grew up on one of these, like, islands off the coast of Washington State, right?

>> Yes, I grew up on Whidbey Island.

Kelly: Oh, Whidbey Island.

Ryan: So what's that like?

>> Well, it's a farm island, and it's basically just a bunch of, like, cows and llamas and horses and Lanas.

Kelly: What about orcas? Did you see, like, orcas?

>> Yes, yes. You know, we were so lucky, because we would see orcas. They would, like, migrate through, and it was so beautiful. And the food is great there, and the people are hippies and also great, so...

Kelly: Yeah.

Ryan: You know, we mentioned "To All the Boys I've Loved Before." Congratulations, that was a huge smash there.

>> Thank you.

Ryan: People are obsessed with it.


Because of that movie, do people actually ask you in real life for love advice?

>> Yes, all of a sudden, people think that I am, like, a love doctor or, like, a love wizard, and I am not, so I'm just--I always tell people, like, "Well, you can just--if you like someone, just go up and say, like, "Hi, I'm Lana.

Thought I'd make a friend.' And see if that works."

Kelly: It's so interesting. I'm thinking about your upbringing and, like, so far away from, you know, Hollywood and all of it. Like, how do you--you know, how does a little girl who's looking at llamas and orcas and all of it say, "I want to be an actor"?

Like, when did that dawn on you?

>> I moved to--I've moved all around, because my dad's a journalist, and then I landed in Los Angeles, and so I went to sophomore through senior year in L.A.

Kelly: I see.

>> And my dad put me in drama class, 'cause he was like, "Lana needs a creative outlet, 'cause she's so dramatic at home. She needs to be dramatic in a class." And then I just loved it, and then I got really lucky and just kind of fell into it, yeah.

Kelly: That's great.

Ryan: Tell us about the movie.

>> Well, "Alita: Battle Angel" is incredible. It's with Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron.

Ryan: Wow.

>> And it's basically about Alita, this girl who, she kind of is found, and she doesn't know who she is, where she is, where she came from. And she is found in Iron City, and then it's basically her journey on figuring out who she is and battling cyborgs.

And it's absolutely incredible, and I play Koyomi, which is one of her friends that's out here just trying to support a girl and be positive and stuff.

But it's an amazing movie, and the action sequences and the fight sequences and all of the cgi is unbelievable.

Ryan: Did you have to do special training for all of that battling and action?

>> I had to-- [laughs]

There's a--motorball is a sport in "Alita: Battle Angel," and it's basically competitive rollerblading, but the rollerblades are motorized.

Ryan: Oh, wow.

>> So I had to train in rollerblading for the movie.

Kelly: That's like a nightmare.

>> It was horrible! I am so bad at rollerblading. Like, we trained for two weeks, and then I get on set, and I'm like, "Okay, I'm ready to show them what I got." But it's like rollerblading on cobblestone with cameras everywhere.

Ryan: Look at James Cameron: "How can I make it impossible for them?"

>> Oh, yeah. So I literally--I get on set, I go about maybe five feet, and the producers are like, "Lana, take those rollerblades off right now. It looks like you're going to break your face." So I was like, "Awesome, awesome." But it's hard!

Kelly: I'm glad they said that, though, because too often, so many actors get hurt doing their own stunts, and I think they have--

>> Safety first.

Kelly: There are people that can do that, and they make it look like it's you.

>> Right, so they brought in the most amazing, like, professional rollerbladers from around the world, like the best of the best, to come in and double us where we couldn't, obviously.

Ryan: Who's trained on cobblestone, right?

Kelly: I know. That's amazing.

Ryan: Well, great to see you. Thanks for coming.

>> Thank you for having me.

Kelly: Congratulations on all your success.

Announcer: Tomorrow on "Live," Jennifer Lopez. And from "Saturday Night Live," Colin Jost.

>> We'll need another officer-- surprise, surprise, a white officer--to play me when they meet face-to-face.

>> See, that's my point exactly.

>> Chief, black Ron Stallworth over the phone, white Ron Stallworth face-to-face so that it becomes a combined Ron Stallworth.

>> Can you do that?

>> I believe we can. With the right white man, we can do anything.

Kelly: It really is incredible. That's John David Washington in "BlacKkKlansman."

[Cheers and applause]

This is a true story. It's so true; the most compelling movies are based on these true stories.

Ryan: So this detective, right, he's going undercover to infiltrate.

>> First African-American detective in Colorado Springs.

Ryan: And he's infiltrating the kkk.

>> Yeah, they thought he was a racist white man. They thought he was a racist white man over the phone, and he actually carries his-- I got to meet the real Ron Stallworth, and he still carries his membership card, Ku Klux Klan membership card signed by David Duke.

It's incredible.

Ryan: Why does he carry it still?

>> Well, he said, like, if he ever gets in an accident or something that they can't identify the body, they'll know that...


That it's him, being a member of the Ku Klux Klan. That's how he put it. That's what he said.

Kelly: Wow.

>> [Laughs]

Kelly: How did your role come about for you?

>> I was on location in Cincinnati, and I got a text message saying, "Yo, this Spike. Call me." Those were the words.

Kelly: "This is Spike. Call me."

>> "Yo."

Ryan: "Yo."

>> "Yo, this Spike. Call me." That's how he--that's how he talks.

Kelly: If I get that text, I assume that you are playing a trick on me, and I'd be like, "Ryan, leave me alone."

>> Right, right, right, right.

Kelly: So what did you think?

>> But, see, you're very secure with the job. You know, I don't have a lot of jobs like that, so...

Kelly: [laughs]

>> "Let me just make sure, 'cause I am a struggling actor." And so I call him like, "Hello?" He's like, "Hey, John, where you at?" I'm like, "I'm in Cincinnati." "There's a story--first African-American Ku Klux--first African-American detective infiltrates the Ku Klux Klan.

There's a book about it. I'm gonna send it to you." I'm like, "Okay. You know, cool." I thought it was a Dave Chappelle skit. I was like, "This ain't real.

But I'll still do it, Spike, for you and Jordan Peele. No problem." You know, no problem. So he sends the book. I read it. I call him back, like, say, "This is amazing." He says, "Bet.

I'll see you this summer."

Kelly: Wow!

>> Yeah, so that's how I got the job.

>> The movie is incredible, and you're terrific in the role.

Kelly: We're so happy for you.

>> Thank you so much.

Ryan: Congratulations. Great to see you.

Kelly: No, this could be--

>> She'll be on tour with The Big Apple Circus.

Kelly: So we're not gonna pad the floor or anything. Okay, here we go. What do I do? I just jump right on up.

>> Doing handstand!

Kelly: Were you holding me up?

>> Yes.

Kelly: Okay.

>> She let go.

Kelly: She let go of me? I couldn't tell what was happening.

Ryan: Have you and Mark ever done that? 'Cause that was perfect.

Kelly: Sometimes, sometimes. Sometimes, yeah.

>> Well, we have--

Kelly: Seacrust, your turn.

Ryan: Seacrust, yes.

Kelly: Seacrest?

Ryan: I have to admit I'm not quite as strong as Kelly is, so...

>> I know. You're gonna be hard to be beat.

Ryan: I'm gonna--yes, of course.

Kelly: You can do it, Ryan. He can do anything.

>> Open arms.

Ryan: Open, I can do that.

>> Facing the other way. The other way. There you go.

>> Your hand, her knee.

>> On my knee, there.

Ryan: And then what?
