J.J. Abrams, Anderson Cooper and More Hit with Salmon for Skit

Filmmaker J.J. Abrams took a break from making the new Star Wars film last week to star in a fish-flying skit for comedian John Oliver’s show Last Week Tonight With John Oliver.

The British comic was covering a news report about salmon transportation and decided to shoot fake fish from a gun.

Soap stars and fellow TV personalities Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman, Jon Stewart and Anderson Cooper all appeared in the skit and were hit by fish, as was The Simpsons’ Homer Simpson in an animated segment and Tom Hanks, who was recording a public service announcement.

But Oliver outdid himself when Abrams was hit by a salmon as he chatted with robot R2-D2 on the Star Wars: Episode VII film set.

The disgusted director stormed off saying, “I quit. I can’t work like this!”

Last Week With John Oliver aired on Sunday night.
