Common on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Common was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and sat down for a fun interview that talked Oprah and Michael Jordan.

Oprah of course because Common left her hanging at the Oscars in the most hilarious moment of the night (en route to his win with John Legend for “Glory”.)

Common saves face by explaining what he was thinking to Kimmel below.

He also recalls the well-known tale of being a ball boy for Michael Jordan, but Common adds a new story from those times too.

And finally, he was also on Jimmy Kimmel to promote his new movie — the first time I’m hearing about this, might I add — Run All Night with Liam Neeson and Ed Harris. Common will play an assassin contracted by Ed Harris’ character to find and kill Liam Neeson. You can see an exclusive clip of Common’s role at the end of the video above, which reveals Common doesn’t have great negotiating skills, ha! The full trailer is below. I’m in on this one. Liam Neeson and a movie-long chase scene? How can you not be?
