>> OH.

>> WE PISSED IN A MAGIC FOUNTAIN

AND NEXT DAY IT DISAPPEARED.

>> AND WHEN THEY FIND IT WE'RE

GOING TO SWITCH BACK.

CAN YOU GET THE TWINS.

PUMPKIN, OKAY.

YOU PROMISED ME THAT YOU

>> Jon: AND CAN I SAY

SOMETHING, YOU ARE PRETTY.

DON'T LET ANYBODY TELL YOU --

>> DID WE GET THAT ON THE

CAMERAS.

>> Jon: YOU CAUGHT IT.

YOU CAN TiVo IT AND FREEZE

IT.

JUST KNOW IT CAME FROM HERE AND

HERE.

JUST KNOW THAT.

[LAUGHTER]

LET ME ASK YOU THIS THE SWITCH,

YOU AND RYAN REYNOLDS, IT SEEMS

LIKE IF YOU SWITCH NOTHING

CHANGES.

YOU ARE BOTH VERY HAND SOME MEN

WITH GOOD PERSONALITIES.

YOU WOULD SWITCH WITH HIM AND

GIRLS WOULD STILL --

>> YOU ARE ALL AROUND IT.

IT'S CRAP.

THE MOVIE IS GARBAGE.

[LAUGHTER]

HERE IS WHAT I'M GOING TO

PROMISE YOU.

WHILE IT IS A TIRED, SOME WOULD

SAY PLEASANTLY FAMILIAR PREMISE.

>> Jon: PLEASANTLY FAMILIAR,

THANK YOU WITH VERY ENGAGING

ACTORS AND A LOVELY INGENUE.

>> AND A 12-PACK BETWEEN US.

OUR OBLIGATION IS TO PLEASE YOU

POST SWITCH.

WE KNOW THEY ARE GOING TO PEE IN

A MAGIC FOUNTAIN.

YOU ARE SAYING ENTERTAIN ME

AFTER THAT.

THAT'S WHAT WE DO.

THAT'S WHAT WE DO.

WE DO IT THE R RATED VERSION.

THE OTHER FILMS HAVE BEEN VERY

GOOD.

LIKE FATHER LIKE SON, THE

SLAUGHTER VEHICLE THING YOU

MENTIONED, LINDSAY LOHAN THING.

WHEN YOU SWITCH BODIES WITH

SOMEBODY AND YOU GET INTO DODGY

SITUATIONS AND THEY ARE ALL

UNDER THE CAPITAL R CATEGORY.

>>

>> Jon: HERE IS WHAT I THINK

YOU ARE SAYING.

THESE ARE TWO MEN SWITCHING.

THESE ARE NOT BOYS SWITCHING.

YOU USED TO LIKE YATZHEE AND NOW

YOU LIKE -- (bleep) THIS IS

LIKE OH, MY GOD YOU ARE TAKING

ME ANDALLY.

-- ANALLY THAT'S NEVER HAPPENED

BEFORE.

>> YOU'VE SEEN THE FILM.

>> Jon: I'M TELLING YOU.

I LIKE WHAT YOU BRING TO THE

TABLE.

YOU DO IT EFFORTLESSLY AND IT'S

WHAT I RESPECT AND ADMIRE ABOUT

YOU.

THIS IS A TRUE STORY.

I RAN INTO YOU -- YOU THINK THIS

IS A CHARM AND WITT AND

INTELLIGENCE HE BRINGS TO A

TELEVISION SHOW.

>> IT'S REAL.

>> Jon: STOP IT.

I RAN INTO THIS MAN ON THE

STREETS, STREETS OF NEW YORK

WHERE YOU DON'T TRUST ANYONE.

>> I WAS SUPPLEMENTING MY

INCOME.

>> Jon: STOP.

AND HE BROUGHT THE SAME

AMOUNT -- WE DID A SEGMENT ON

THE STREET.

I COULD HAVE THROWN TO

COMMERCIAL TWICE.

PEOPLE STAYED WITH IT.

>> THIS GUY WAS ON HIS WAY --

>> Jon: I PARTIED.

HE SAW ME --

>> I MENTIONED CAPITAL R RATING.

THIS GUY --

>> Jon: TELL THEM WHAT I WAS

UP TO.

>> THE WIFE AND KIDS WERE OUT OF

TOWN.

>> Jon: THAT'S RIGHT, BABY.

>> IT WAS A SATURDAY NIGHT.

THE SUN WAS BEAUTIFULLY RESTING

IN THE RIVER.

AND THIS HELLCAT WAS ON HIS WAY

TO NOT ONE SLICE BUT TWO SLICES

OF PIZZA.

>> Jon: TELL THEM WHAT ONE OF

THEM WAS.

ONE WAS PLAIN BUT ONE WAS --

>> MUSHROOM!

>> Jon: MOTHER (bleep)

BOOYA.

ATE THEM BOTH!

BOTH!

>> COME ON!

>> Jon: BOTH SAME SITTING.

THAT'S WHAT I DID.

IT>> IT WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY

TRIP.

RIGHT THERE AT THE TAIL END OF

MY TRIP.

>> Jon: I ENJOYED IT.

IT IS WHAT IT IS.

>> IT IS WHAT IT IS.

>> Jon: WE DO A LITTLE Q AND A

IN THE BEGINNING OF THE SHOW AND

A GENTLEMAN ASKED ME IF JASON

BATEMAN WOULD BE ON THE SHOW.

I KNOW YOU MIGHT GET TIRED OF

THIS.

HE ENJOYS YOUR WORK IN ARRESTED

DEVELOPMENT.

HE WANTS TO KNOW IF THERE'S A

MOVIE COMING OUT THAT WOULD

CONTINUE THE NARRATIVE ART, THE

CHARACTERS, THAT TYPE OF THING.

HE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THAT IS

IN THE WORKS.

>> THE MOVIE, YES IS IN THE

WORKS.

HOWEVER.

--

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

WE ASSOCIATED WITH THE SHOW FEEL

LIKE REAL TOOLS WHEN WE'RE ASKED

THIS QUESTION WHICH WE'RE ASKED

OFTEN AND WE WOULD LOVE TO

ANSWER IT.

BUT THERE'S NEVER A SIGNIFICANT

UPDATE.

THAT DOESN'T STOP THE FRINGE

MEDIA, PRESENT COMPANY

EXCLUDED --

>> THANK YOU SIR.

>> SAYING THERE'S NO UPDATE TO

WRITING A HEADLINE BATEMAN TALKS

ABOUT ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT.

I HESITATE TO ANSWER BUT I WILL

SAY WE WILL MAKE THIS MOVIE, THE

SECOND THEY MAKE THE BOSSES DEAL

HIS NAME IS MITCH.

HE'S THE GENIUS.

I HOPE THEY GIVE HIM EVERYTHING

HE IS ASKING FOR BECAUSE THE MAN

IS THE SECOND COMING.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Jon: I'LL SAY THIS TO YOU

THE CHANGEUP IS IN THEATERS ON

FRIDAY.

YOU GIVE THAT GUY EVERYTHING HE

WANTED INCLUDING A MUSHROOM

SLICE.
