AND I WAS LIKE, ARE WE TALKING, LIKE, I KIND OF WANTED TO TEMPT HER BECAUSE I WANTED TO KNOW. ARE WE TALKING A SPOONFUL OF CEREAL? A FACEFUL?>>Jimmy: OR YOU’RE GOING TO GET THE BOWL ON YOUR HEAD.>>I WANTED TO PUSH HER TOWARDS THAT.>>Jimmy: IF THE ELF WOULD HAVE SEEN THAT, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ALL OVER. THAT’S CUTE.

I USED TO WORK IN THEATER AND I WORKED AT A DINNER THEATER.>>Jimmy: I WANTED TO ASK YOU ABOUT THAT, BECAUSE I HAPPEN TO HAVE AN ADVERTISEMENT. THIS IS SOMETHING SOMEONE POSTED ON, I THINK, INSTAGRAM.

ARE PEOPLE EATING WHILE YOU’RE ACTING?>>SOMETIMES THEY ARE. IT’S FUN. I LOVED IT. I HAVE TO SAY.>>Jimmy: REALLY?>>BUT AS FAR AS LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT SORT OF THE FOOD ELEMENT OF IT AND SORT OF, ARE THEY EATING WHILE YOU’RE DOING IT AND USUALLY, YOU’RE SERVED FIRST BUT OCCASIONALLY, FOOD WILL FIND ITS WAY TO THE STAGE.>>Jimmy: TO THE STAGE?>>YEAH, THERE WAS A POTATO ON STAGE ONCE. IT WAS, LIKE, STILL IN THE FOIL, TOO. SO I’M LIKE, IF YOU DIDN’T WANT YOUR POTATO, THERE ARE — >>Jimmy: I THINK THAT’S A SIGN. LIKE IN DETROIT AT THE RED WINGS GAMES, THE HOCKEY FANS WILL THROW AN OCTOPUS ON THE STAGE. I THINK A BAKED POTATO ON THE STAGE MEANS THEY LOVED YOUR PERFORMANCE.>>I’LL TAKE IT. [ APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THERE’S A POTATO ON THE STAGE?>>I’LL TAKE IT THAT THEY LOVED IT. THERE’S DIFFERENT THINGS YOU CAN DO. I DON’T REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED WITH THAT PARTICULAR BAKED POTATO. BUT TYPICALLY, IF YOU ARE A DANCER OR ONE OF THE BACKGROUND ARTISTS, WHICH I WAS, YOU WILL FIND A WAY ON YOUR PATH, LIKE, DURING THE OPENING SONG, LIKE, OUR STATE FAIR IS A GREAT STATE FAIR, YOU KNOW? THAT KIND OF THING.>>Jimmy: VERY ELEGANT POTATO REMOVAL. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>I’VE STILL GOT IT. I’VE STILL GOT IT.>>Jimmy: YEAH, YOU DO.>>I MIGHT HAVE PULLED SOMETHING.>>Jimmy: DO YOU EVER TALK TO ANY OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT YOU WORKED WITH?>>I DO. THEY’RE WONDERFUL.>>Jimmy: CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR THREE GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATIONS. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] I WOULD BE WILLING TO BET THAT THOSE PEOPLE YOU WORKED WITH TAKE A LOT OF PRIDE IN THAT. THEY’RE LIKE, YEAH, I ACTED WITH AMY AND, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE WERE EATING, BUT NOW SHE’S GOT THREE GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATIONS.>>I OWE THEM A LOT, ACTUALLY. THEY KIND OF FORMED A FAMILY FOR ME AND GAVE ME A LOT OF CONFIDENCE IN MYSELF. THEY WERE THE ONES THAT REALLY ENCOURAGED ME TO MOVE OUT TO L.A. AND TRY IT IF I WANTED TO. AND I OWE A LOT TO THEM.>>Jimmy: WHEN YOU’RE NOMINATED THREE TIMES, DO YOU GET THREE PAIRS OF TICKETS TO THE GLOBES?>>THAT’S WHAT MY MOM WANTS TO KNOW.>>Jimmy: RIGHT. YEAH, YOU CAN INVITE THE OLD DINNER THEATER CREW TO COME. BECAUSE THE GOLDEN GLOBES IS KIND OF LIKE DINNER THEATER EXCEPT IT’S MORE LIKE COCKTAIL THEA THEATER.>>THERE IS NO DINNER WHICH IS WHY THE COCKTAILS ARE SO EFFECTIVE. IT’S LIKE BREAD STICK THEATER. THERE’S ALWAYS THE BREAD STICKS.>>Jimmy: WILL YOU SMUGGLE A POTATO IN JUST FOR OLD TIME’S SAKE?>>I’LL JUST PUT IT ON THE STAGE.>>Jimmy: DO YOU DRINK, KNOWING THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE TO GO UP AND ACCEPT AN AWARD?>>I MEAN, I WILL HAVE A GLASS OF CHAMPAGNE. I TRY — YES, I TRY NOT TO DRINK TOO MUCH, BUT I NEVER THINK I’M GOING TO WIN. ONE TIME I DID HAVE NOT TOO MUCH BUT TWO.>>Jimmy: I SEE.>>AND I PUSHED IT AWAY, GOING, I SHOULD NOT DO THAT.
