As part of Jimmy Kimmel‘s “If we didn’t see it, we wouldn’t believe it” interview with Oprah Winfrey on his post-Oscars special, the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host mentioned that he and the Big O first met a few weeks ago, because he had some good ideas for her OWN network that he wanted to pitch.
Among the ideas: “Oprah Repossesses Her Favorite Things,” “Oprah After Dark” (including a mustachioed Kimmel), Oprah and Jimmy simultaneously interviewing Jennifer Aniston and “Oprah’s Book Club Fight Club.” The last one was the funniest idea, mainly because the sight of Ms. Your Best Life beating the living snot out of people who disagreed with her opinions of “To Kill a Mockingbird” is something we couldn’t even imagine seeing in our wildest dreams.
But the upshot of the pre-recorded sketch is that Oprah can hold her own as a comedic actress. So if she indeed wants to go back into acting, as she told Jimmy during their interview, maybe she should hook up with Tyler Perry and do something funny instead of her usual uplifting stuff.
