  • Amaya Harris (Nov 23, 2018)

    Rami deserves an Oscar for pretending not to be completely annoyed at Jimmy cutting him off every three seconds

  • Tayorama YT (1 day ago)

    I know

  • mbobadilla94 (Mar 8, 2019)

    This applies to Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon 😂

  • Dave G. (Nov 1, 2018)

    Way to immediately make your guest uncomfortable by pointing out his nipples to everyone then proceed to interrupt him throughout the entire interview.

  • Nice Sauce (Feb 28, 2019)

    yes what an idiot

  • Danielle Cooner (Jan 30, 2019)


  • First Name Last Name (Oct 28, 2018)


  • Dillon Hogan (Mar 10, 2019)

    I'm pretty sure he's just genuinely excited

  • Sam Christensen (Mar 6, 2019)

    That laugh

  • Victor Rooroh (Oct 30, 2018)

    He was actually still in Freddie’s mannerism. He hasn’t let it go yet... extensive Method acting

  • Paisley Bruise (3 hours ago)

    He’s not a method actor. His technique comes from Declan Donellan’s book The Actor and The Target and he studied this technique at the Berg Studios in the Atwater Village neighborhood of Los Angeles.

  • Tawnya Davis (14 hours ago)

    It might not actually be acting. He could really have the presence about him all the time, which is one of the reasons he was picked to play the part. I don't know. Just a theory.

  • Mi Ra (Nov 6, 2018)

    He can also play bruno mars if ever bruno mars gets a biopic

  • THE GFQ (Mar 7, 2019)

    I will love it if he will play michael jackson if he ever gets a chance

  • Ayushmann _ (Mar 3, 2019)

    Yeah for that jawline

  • Tasha Rob (Dec 18, 2018)

    Jimmy: “How are you doing?”“I’m doing well I’m-“Jimmy: ”You wanna know something?”

  • Sam Christensen (Mar 6, 2019)

    Really? Even at lunch hahahahahahahahahaha

  • Sam Christensen (Mar 6, 2019)

    Oh my gosh...he interrupts EVERYTHING!

  • Jen Vincur (Oct 31, 2018)

    I love the fact that Remi speaks about Freddie in present tense. “He’ll tell you this.”

  • Beth G (Feb 26, 2019)

    I noticed that he did this in an interview with Stephen Colbert, too. He spoke about Freddie in present tense. When I saw him do it here, I wondered if it was more than a slip.

  • XxJasylxX (Feb 12, 2019)

    MrPittsburghJ not really I think hemeant more like as throughout time Freddie is still alive because 27 years later they make a whole movie about him and people still sing his songs to this day 😊

  • Gajo Ahmed (Oct 31, 2018)

    This guy deserves Oscar for his performance as Freddy he was amazing 10mins into the movie all you see is Freddy you forget is Malik
