Ben Simmons was on The Late Late Show with James Corden last night alongside Mayim Bialik, who played “Blossom” on that 90s sitcom and now stars on The Big Bang Theory.
I haven’t seen much of Corden’s show, but in watching the replay, it looks like he brings out the guests first and does some goofy skit before the traditional interviews at the desk.
Last night Simmons and Bialik played some game where you put on a blindfold and “nuzzle” a random item, and the gist is that you have to identify the item based on pressing your face up against it.
She went first:
“Is it a nylon grocery bag?”
Ben went second, after the jump:
“It’s an animal, for sure.”
There wasn’t much to take away from the interview, which is always kind of weird when you have two guests who don’t know each.
Corden brought up the “Fresh Prince” nickname, which Simmons says he didn’t really embrace right off the bat. Not sure if anyone is really using that nickname anyway, are they? They talked about Simmons growing up with two cats and a dog in the house, and the two bearded dragons and two Savannah cats he had in Philadelphia that he eventually gave to someone else. Corden also showed the clip of Simmons playing his dad in basketball when he was a kid.
Anyway, here’s the link to the episode if you wanna watch the whole thing:
