  • So this is your second time here.
  • Yes.
  • And I noticed that we have a lot in common.
  • You went to Africa this past summer as well.
  • I did, yeah.
  • Where did you go?
  • I went with Red, do you know Red?
  • Uh huh, yes.
  • Red works with AIDS, HIV.
  • Went to Swaziland and did some work there.
  • And then I went on safari to take a break after all this.
  • I said, I'm down here, I got to check things out.
  • So I went to a rhino conservation camp,
  • and it was fascinating.
  • It's the most in the present moment you could be.
  • When you see giraffes and you see elephants and all
  • the wildlife there, you're just transported
  • to a different world.
  • Yeah.
  • Yeah, you went to Rwanda?
  • Yeah, I went--
  • You have a foundation there, right?
  • Yes, Yeah.
  • The Ellen Fund, and we're trying to save the mountain
  • gorillas, because they're losing their habitat.
  • But, yeah I've gone on safari twice now,
  • and it's just the most amazing--
  • I urge everyone to go.
  • If you get a chance to go to Africa and go on safari,
  • there is nothing like seeing an animal just, right next to you.
  • No, no until like the third or fourth day when you go,
  • OK, yeah, there's another--
  • Giraffe.
  • Six zebras.
  • Yeah, I know.
  • OK, I'm kind of used to it at this point.
  • It really is funny, because you do get used to it.
  • You're looking for something that you
  • can't find, cause you're like, yeah I know,
  • I've seen the zebra.
  • I've seen--
  • Yeah, I've seen the zebra, give me something else.
  • Yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • So, you don't follow anyone on Instagram, do you?
  • No.
  • No, no I don't.
  • But you post--
  • I noticed this, and my feelings are hurt.
  • You posted a couple of pictures of you
  • and Stephen Colbert, who I like very much.
  • Oh there they are.
  • Yeah, he asked me to do that, so I was game.
  • Oh, he asked you to do it?
  • Oh yeah.
  • I thought you asked him, and I was going to say I'm hurt.
  • Oh, you're going to be hurt?
  • Yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • Well, we could do one?
  • Well now, see, you're asking me, so that's better.
  • Yes.
  • Because I didn't want to ask you--
  • No, no.
  • No I wanted you to ask me.
  • Let's do it.
  • And I think we're both mutual friends with Jimmy Kimmel,
  • so now he's going to get a little hurt.
  • Yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • Well I'm sure you'll see Jimmy soon,
  • And then you can do Jimmy as well.
  • OK.
  • Yeah, you should collect all the talk show hosts.
  • I should.
  • It'll be like baseball cards.
  • Let's take--
  • Should we do it?
  • Yeah, and let's everyone saw that he asked me,
  • I didn't ask him.
  • Yes, here we go.
  • Oh, should we take that off?
  • I don't know.
  • Whatever, hacker man.
  • This is my meme, is hacker man.
  • And OK, here we go.
  • OK.
  • Thank you.
  • Thank you.
  • Alright.
  • Alright, I want to take a break, because I really
  • want to give the movie time to talk about.
  • Because you were really--
  • how you transformed into this character.
  • Because I think when I heard, I was like, wow,
  • that's an interesting choice, that you're
  • going to play Freddie Mercury.
  • And then you see the movie, and you're like, oh,
  • that's the obvious choice.
  • But how you embodied him is fascinating.
  • So I want to take a break, and when we come back,
  • I want to learn how you did the movements
  • and learned everything that you did.
  • OK.
  • And just playing piano with your hands behind your head and--
  • I'll fill you in on all of it.
  • I want all of it, alright.
  • We'll be back.
