Billy Bob Thornton on Jimmy Kimmel Live (4/21/09).

really Wed morning @ 12:06am EST, but i think this is a new one and in light of the recent controversy could be an interesting ep if he addresses it. otherwise, who really cares...

I just hope Kimmel introduces him as "award winning actor, Billy Bob Thornton."

And it begins. Did anyone else think he was either hungover or on something during that Canadian interview? It was just so out there....

I'd like to think that was the case, but according to the Kimmel appearance, Billy Bob claims he does this sort of thing often, but that it must've been a slow news day.

I was disappointed that Kimmel was a complete kiss-ass when they were talking about the incident. Thornton described it as though the radio interviewer was grilling him about movies, when all he did was mention his acting as a small part of his introduction. He then immediately went on to ask questions about the band.

Did anyone get this episode in HD? It was SD on the Albany affiliate. I wonder if they forgot to flip the HD switch or if it was networkwide.

I don't think Kimmel was ever shown in HD

Billy Bob should stick to his day job.

You could hardly hear his voice and the music was boring.

Kimmel went HD last week. It was fine for me, so it must have been your affiliate.

So he said he was being a dick as a joke? Smart move, moran.

Yeah, I liked his comment about the Canadian DJ "lying to my face." Thornton came off as a spoiled celebrity who thinks granting interviews is some sort of grand gift. He forgets that the whole reason he was there was to promote himself, his band and their music.
