Jimmy Kimmel had one of the world's greatest actors on last night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" - and that would be Meryl Streep, there to promote "August Osage County" - but failed to ask the one question that anyone with a computer and Internet access would have desperately liked him to ask: "Meryl, what do you really think about Walt Disney?"

 kimmel of course works for Disney - not the man, who died in '66, of course, but the company - so a chance to clear the air, or maybe make some news anyway. 

 But nothing.

 In any event, the interview was still amusing. Here's a chunk of it, and worth watching...
