The past few days have given rise to a bit of 'SNL' controversy for the current season's failure to included women of color either among the cast or portrayed in sketches, but the latest host should at least answer some qualms. 'Scandal' it-girl Kerry Washington will host the November 2 installment of the late-night NBC sketch comedy series, bringing back rapper Eminem as musical guest for the sixth time.
Everyone remembers the scene in 'Big' when Tom Hanks plays "Chopsticks" on the novelty piano with just his feet. Hanks recently appeared on 'The Jonathan Ross Show' to relive the magic with the host, but then we got a special surprise: Sandra Bullock, who was on hand to promote 'Gravity,' joined in the fun. And even more impressive: Bullock can play "Chopsticks" in high heels!
Mileage definitely varied on 'SNL' this past weekend with Bruce Willis' first hosting stint since 1989, though amid all the "Boy Dance Parties" and centaurs, we were in for one definite bright spot. Upcoming 'Grand Budapest Hotel' star and former 'Hulk' Edward Norton will host 'SNL' for the first time on October 26, with musical guest Janelle Monae.
Bruce Willis has made plenty of headlines in recent months with his apparent disinterest in the spotlight, but will he be up to the task of hosting 'SNL' for the first time since 1989? The 'Die Hard' star will step up to the stage for this Saturday's follow-up to last week's Miley Cyrus outing, and the first previews at least bring us "The Return of Bruno." Ah, '80s humor.
The late-night landscape will look drastically different by this time next year, now that Jimmy Fallon will take over for Jay Leno as host of 'The Tonight Show' in early 2014, but some things will at least stay the same. Extending his own 2014 contract, David Letterman has re-signed to stick with CBS' 'Late Show with David Letterman' through at least 2015.
The fervor over Miley Cyrus at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, and all the naked wrecking ball swings since seems to have died down, but will this Saturday's all-new 'SNL' start the gossip machine anew? The tongue-wagging Cyrus will pull double duty on this weekend's Tina Fey-follow up, so what do the first new 'SNL' previews of the week have to offer?
Amid all the other major premieres this week and next, we'd nearly forgotten that 'SNL' will kick off its 39th season this coming Saturday, with alumni Tina Fey taking up hosting duties and Arcade Fire on the musical side. The first preview for Fey's return to the 'SNL' stage has arrived, but has everything already come unhooked?
Up until now, almost every actor in Hollywood has been asked for their reaction on Ben Affleck being cast as Batman in 'Batman vs. Superman' (as if their opinion mattered at all), when the one person we wanted to hear from - Affleck himself - has stayed completely silent.
Until now. Affleck appeared on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' last night and talked about why he wanted to star as Batman, his reaction to the internet freak out and why his radio silence wasn't an accident.
We're still not quite sure if we're ready to laugh at 'Breaking Bad' when AMC moves forward on the 'Better Call Saul' spinoff, but fortunately Jimmy Fallon knows just how to strike the tone. Fallon's latest 'Late Night' parody sees the future 'Tonight Show' host "Joking Bad" with some incredible and surprising cameos, the best way to start your morning.
Forget all about that crap rumor of Lindsay Lohan hosting the 'SNL' season 39 premiere, much more credible intel points to an even crazier female figure: Lady Gaga! Unsurprising given her showy VMA performance and upcoming album release, the queen of weird will return to the 'SNL' stage in season 39 to perform, but is there any chance the star will take up hosting duties as well?
