Has Steve Carell entered the “Hey, just do whatever you want!” part of his career? Probably, and good for him! And good for us, because that means we get lots of special, weird things to watch, like this clip of Steve Carell and a barbershop quartet crooning Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” to an extremely confused studio audience.

Ben Stiller has accomplished a lot in his life -- this is the guy who created 'Zoolander,' after all -- but his dearest memory might just be a very unexpected one: that time he survived a hot air balloon ride. Said ride wasn't conceived of as a daredevil experiment, it was actually a fun part of a Stiller family vacation in Italy. It was supposed to be a good experience!

Watch Chris Rock Reminisce About His Rap Deal That Never Worked Out

EDIT

Comedian/actor/writer/director Chris Rock has already proven that he can do just about everything -- and do it pretty well, if his upcoming feature 'Top Five' is any indication -- but the funny man almost had another major career move bulleted on his resume. Before Rock made it big as an actor, he dabbled in the disc jockey arts, deeming his own skills to be "nice!" After the DJing came a deal for a rap record, which was made, but never released, a weird bit of trivia that Rock shared with Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show' last night.

President Barack Obama Took Over ‘The Colbert Report’ Last Night

"Stephen, you've been taking a lot of shots at my job, I decided I'm going to go ahead and take a shot at yours." 'The Colbert Report' host Stephen Colbert has been teasing his biggest show ever for awhile now, including a stopover in Washington, D.C. and a long-form chat with President Barack Obama, but even he can't possibly have foreseen how that event would turn out. Essentially, it resulted in the talk show host losing his job...to President Obama, who swept on to stage and hijacked the show from an aghast -- but totally willing -- Colbert, only to put his own spin on what it means to host a political chat show. Does Colbert have something to worry about? We vote yes.

Joaquin Phoenix Announced His Engagement on ‘The Late Show’

EDIT

Often, particularly colorful characters take to the various late shows to flex the full range of their unique spirit, just for funsies. Joaquin Phoenix looked to be going down that precise path on last night's 'Late Show,' actively imitating himself learning yoga, calling his more personal bits "Julio Igelasias," and just generally having a good time. Host David Letterman looked nervous, but Phoenix looked relaxed, and that might be why Phoenix's good-time appearance took a serious turn when the 'Inherent Vice' star announced his engagement on air.

Jennifer Aniston Reveals a Strange Secret About ‘Horrible Bosses 2’

TBS
Jennifer Aniston gets admirably down and dirty in the 'Horrible Bosses' features -- Rachel Green, she is not -- but her performance actually extends far beyond saying raunchy, possibly dental-fueled comments to anyone in her atmosphere. It comes down to the details.

Stephen Colbert Demands Christopher Nolan Explain Why His Movies Make Us Think

EDIT
by Kate Erbland December 4, 2014 @ 9:25 AM
‘Colbert Report’ host Stephen Colbert likes to be entertained when he goes to the movies—if that involves a lot of stuff getting blown up, all the better—and if said entertainment is served up with a heaping side of “thinking stuff,” well, he doesn’t really know what to do with that. On last night’s ‘Report,’ Colbert hosted ‘Interstellar’ director Christopher Nolan, who has a knack for making Colbert think and get excited about the blowing up stuff. Why, Colbert wondered, can’t Nolan just be satisfied with making entertaining stuff? Why must he make us think?

Martin Short Resurrects Beloved Jiminy Glick Character to Harass Jimmy Fallon

EDIT

NBC
Former 'SNL' star and enduring comedy legend Martin Short has many stellar characters under his belt, but his Jiminy Click--who perhaps broke said belt many years ago--is one of his best. The dim bulb Hollywood entertainment reporter spectacularly biffs each and every one of his interviews, while still somehow managing to seem as if he is the one in the right. It's a true talent (which, considering how bad Jiminy is at his actual job, is something the fake character should cling to).

Mindy Kaling Explains Why Her ‘Mindy Project’ Always Comes With a Warning Label

EDIT
by Kate Erbland December 2, 2014 @ 8:13 AM
If you're a fan of Mindy Kaling's 'The Mindy Project,' you're probably pretty well-acquainted with the show's warnings, which often clue viewers into some particularly raunchy and/or ribald material ahead. Kaling, of course, doesn't always intend for her program to basically involve a skull and crossbones warning, it's just something that happens. Still, that doesn't means that she doesn't sort of relish it.

Seth Meyers’ Second Chance Theatre Presents Jason Sudeikis’ Favorite Unaired ‘SNL’ Sketch

EDIT

NBC
‘Late Night’ host Seth Meyers’ Second Chance Theatre—a second home for the ‘SNL’ skits that never were—has so far given a playground to some wild stuff, but former ‘SNL’ star Jason Sudeikis had something a little more lo-fi in mind for his spin on the ol’ Second Chance-mobile. You can practically hear the pitch meeting: “It’s about a guy who wants to give juggling lessons, but everyone hates him.” Simple enough, right?
