Rob Ford Jimmy Kimmel

Kevin Spacey takes a few jabs at Rob Ford on Kimmel

If there was any doubt about how Rob Ford was going to be handled when he appears on Jimmy Kimmel Live, last night's brief pre-appearance should clear things up. Addressing the audience, Kimmel confirms that the Toronto mayor will be a guest tonight before Ford comes out on stage, seemingly confused about the timing of his appearance. It's an awkward enough moment, even if it's clearly staged. It's also a sort of promise that tonight's interview is sure to be filled with hijinks and embarrassing moments for Ford.

Arguably, the real fun last night took place during Kevin Spacey's interview with Kimmel, when the House of Cards star takes a few pokes at Ford much to the delight of the host and audience. Kimmel thanks Spacey for sharing a dressing room with the mayor, to which he responds "he threw up all over it." These are just appetizers for tonight's appearance, but it'd be fair to say we're getting hungry.
