As yet another star-studded and box office-busting summer moviegoing season ends this weekend, it's the perfect time to look back at the months that gave us enough entertainment to pad our culture-consuming bellies until it's time for the Oscar contenders to bulk us back up
Like anyone who lived through the '90s, Jimmy Kimmel loved 'Friends,' but while being a fan of the television staple is wholly understandable, the depth of his affection is, well, perhaps not. Kimmel hosted 'Friends' star Jennifer Aniston on his show last night, and while she might have expected to chat about her latest movie, 'Life of Crime,' and share some fun tidbits and anecdotes, the host had other ideas.
If you've ever seen the press room at a major awards show, you know how strange and dizzying an experience it must be for the winners -- just a lot of people screaming questions at them while they clutch their new award and try to process the whole thing -- but we've finally found something much, much more bizarre.
Quick question: what were you doing last night? Were you on 'Chelsea Lately' to celebrate Chelsea Handler's final show? No? Are you sure? Because everyone was there.
Michael Cera is a busy guy, but while the indie mainstay and 'Arrested Development' star hit up the 'Late Show' last night to chat about his literal theatrics, host David Letterman was way more interested in extracurricular activities, like the actor's new German girlfriend and his trip to visit a giant basket.
Josh Brolin knows what's up. The current star of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' makes no bones about where he got his start (and the feature that he might still be best known for): Richard Donner's kids cult classic, 'The Goonies.' Rumors of a 'Goonies' sequel have abounded for years -- the last we heard, it was definitely in the works -- but it doesn't matter when (or if) the film actually happens, because Brolin will turn up for the gig with no questions asked.
If nothing else, Jared Leto's appearance on last night's 'Tonight Show' was probably the most "Jared Leto" the Oscar-winner has been on the late-night circuit. The actor/musician/forever Jordan Catalano took to Jimmy Fallon's show to basically hang out, get his beard trimmed, talk about Zen things, make music, and sit on a fake mountaintop with his host. If only every late-night segment could be this good.
Seth Meyers has been taking a little bit of time off from 'Late Night' to prep for a very big, very primetime gig as host of the 2014 Emmys. He's even had to temporarily decamp to Los Angeles to get ready for the show, a trip that apparently involved some very fraught air travel. Turns out, when you're hosting the Emmys, you need TV props, and most of our most lauded shows involve items that, well, just aren't air travel friendly.
By now, it seems that every celebrity under the sun has taken the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge -- even your favorite Marvel stars -- but there is still a handful of big names who have yet to take the plunge. One obvious choice? Lindsay Lohan, who seems to have so far slipped through the cracks. Well, at least until one random fan challenged her to the task and then employed Jimmy Fallon to make it happen on 'The Tonight Show.' Oh, you're done for now, Lohan.
Pierce Brosnan is back in the spy game, baby! Although the former Bond, James Bond isn't jumping back into 007's shoes (hey, Daniel Craig is pretty good at that, okay?), Brosnan hasn't yet abandoned his action hero status, and he'll next appear in this month's 'The November Man,' where he will play -- shock! -- a spy.
