During the taping of last night's 'Conan,' the heartbreaking news of Robin Williams' passing was announced. Instead of ignoring the news or saving it for tomorrow or not acknowledging it, host Conan O'Brien took it upon himself to share it with a shocked studio audience, sidekick Andy Richter, and guest Will Arnett. Still stunned and reeling from the news, the trio -- all of whom had worked with Williams in the past -- shared their thoughts on the actor and comedian.
You know the drill by now: a big star hits up a late night talk show to chat, laugh, maybe play a game, plug their latest project, and show a clip. It's a standard way to do things, but you know who doesn't care about standard ways of doing things? Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. And, really, who are we to argue with him?
ABC's series 'Once Upon a Time' has already plowed through a hefty number of fairy tale characters and stories in its three seasons on the air, so it wasn't a huge surprise when the show decided to add in some newish tales -- it was, however, a bit of a shock that they had snagged Disney's smash hit 'Frozen' to make the leap to the small (and live-action) screen.
'The Tonight Show' is down in Orlando for the week, and although the 'Harry Potter' theme park they overtook is packed with families, it's really for the kids, because it doesn't seem as if any of the parents in attendance have ever even picked up a book. Need proof? Jimmy Fallon sent out a writer to quiz some park-goers (no kids!) about some basic 'Potter' trivia, and the results were kind of dismal.
So far, 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon has made 'NBC Nightly News' host Brian Williams rap (through the magic of editing) a stunning eight songs, from "Gin and Juice" to "Rapper's Delight." But last night's edition just might be the best yet, as he tackled Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back."
Jennifer Lawrence is just like us, you guys. She goes to fancy parties with her best friend and yells things at people she likes and then maybe, possibly, totally throws up on a porch. It's just that the details are a little different when it comes to the celeb -- like the people she yells at are stars like Brad Pitt, and she goes to fancy parties after events like the Oscars, and she might be tossing her cookies on the porch of Madonna's manager. Normal. Not normal? And who judged her for said puking, a story the it-girl shared with Seth Meyers on his 'Late Night' last night?
Important question: who among you knew that 'Tonight Show' host and all-around funny guy Jimmy Fallon was also a skilled harmonica player? Has he been doing this for long? Does everyone know about this? Should we have already known about this? Somewhat related: who among you knew that Russell Crowe has a background in fronting badly-named rock bands?
What did you do this weekend? Saw friends, enjoyed spring, took a walk, had a picnic, slept in? Cool. Jimmy Kimmel zipped down to Arizona to take pictures with the Clinton clan -- the entire Clinton clan -- so we're going to have to go ahead and crown the late-night host the king of the weekend. Hey, you can still win this next one!
"Not alright, not alright, not alright!" No matter how famous you may be, if your name is at all confounding, confusing, or oddly spelled, some people still might not know how to spell it -- not now, not ever. Matthew McConaughey may have just won an Oscar for Best Actor, but that doesn't mean that the average Joe can parse his last name, and Seth Meyers is out to prove that said average Joe (or, in this case, an average Frank) isn't the only one inept at putting the correct letters together.
