– Our next guest is
a super talented author and chef who really knows
his way around the kitchen. [audience laughter] [cheers and catcalls] [cheers and applause] That’s a martini. [cheers] I’m sorry, who’s this for? [James Bond theme plays] [cheers and applause] This is your fourth time
playing Bond, and will this– I’ve read that
it’ll be your last. Will this be your last?
– I don’t know. I mean, it’s–
you know, it’s a funny thing. I got asked the question two
days after I finished shooting whether I’d like
to do another one, and my answer was
fairly short and sweet. – Yeah. Does it take–how long
are you shooting that for? – It’s an 8-month shoot. But we’re do–I’m working on it
for two years, so it takes up
a big chunk of my time and I’m away from my family,
and– You know, I just want to
go home at the end of it, so I don’t even want to think
about it just at the moment. I mean, if I did
stop doing them, I would miss them terribly. – And you’re so good.
– Oh, you’re so nice. – I think you’re
a great James Bond. [cheers and applause] – Thank you.
– You really are. [cheers and applause] And you get–you just–I mean,
they get better and better. It’s always exciting
and it’s always– I’m wondering where
that suit came from. I don’t see luggage with you,
but you always have a tuxedo– – It’s a James Bond movie.
– Oh, okay, all right. – There is, there’s
a little luggage somewhere. There’s a tiny little case,
you know? ‘Cause it folds out. It’s like this big.
Yeah, it’s a James Bond movie. – You could do something
like that. And then I also heard,
which I think is very cool, if you do decide that
you won’t play Bond anymore, that a woman could play
the role. – Sure.
– Really? – Yes.
– Wow. Now I said I thought Oprah should play–
what do you feel? – I think that’s a good idea.
[audience laughter] What about you?
– Uh, no. I think Oprah should play it.
– Really? But I think you wear
a suit incredibly well. – Thank you.
[cheers and applause] – I did actually–
[cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] I did–I brought this
for you as well, because I thought if you ever
really did consider it you’re gonna need one of those,
which is– – Oh, my God.
– Which is a Bond watch. – It’s the watch from the movie! [cheers and applause] – So if you wear that,
you have the suit, you have the part,
as far as I’m concerned. – Well…Oprah, you’re out.
I’m playing it now. [audience laughter] Thank you so much.
That’s so sweet of you. – It’s my pleasure.
[cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] – Um, I hate to–
now you’ve given me a watch and I’m going to ask you
for a favor, but you’ve got so much pull
in London, and we are on the air in India. We stream live in China.
We’re on the air in Dubai. We’re on everywhere,
except for London. – Mm.
– Um, can you– Can you do something about that?
[audience laughter] – I can try. – ‘Cause we
have a campaign going, Get Elley on the Telly. – I’ve heard of this, yes.
[audience laughter] [cheers and applause] – Right?
[cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] So–
[cheers and applause] Seriously, we have–
[cheers and applause] – There you go.
– We have a hashtag, #GetElleyOnTheTelly. If anybody wants to join, we’re
trying to get this thing going, ’cause I don’t know
why I’m not on there. – Well, what can I do? – Well, I have something
I’ve written, You can either read it or you can get it
to the queen or something. Where’s the scroll?
[audience laughter] I have something–
– Ah, there we go. [cheers and applause] – Thank you.
– So, yeah. If you could just get that to
somebody, it would be great. – Do you want me to read this?
– If you want. – “Your majesty, the queen.
Hey, Liz. Ellen DeGeneres here.”
[audience laughter] That’ll go down well. “I’ve recently been
made aware of an issue “that threatens
the long-lasting friendship “between our two great nations. “My show [programme]
does not air in England. “With only the well-being of
your citizens in mind, “I humbly request that
we fix this problem and get Elley on the telly.” [laughter and applause] “Sincerely, Ellen–”
Yes, I’ll do what I can. – Thank you so much.
– I can’t–you know. I’m not sure when but I will
get it to her at some point. – Yeah, if you could just ride
your horse to the castle and whatever you do there. – Yes, I will.
– I appreciate it so very much.
