Imagine you’re asked to appear as an extra in a new movie. Also imagine you’re told but a handful of things about the movie: that it’s set in the seventies, that it stars Burt Reynolds, and that you just need to clap a lot during some sort of awards show scene.

Stay with this one. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' Hugh Grant appeared to chat about various things -- including his new Valentine's Day-timed rom-com release, 'The Rewrite' -- before joining in on a spirited game of Hallway Golf with host Jimmy Fallon and special guest Charles Barkley. Despite a slow start -- it appears that no one really understands the rules or even cares about them -- this game eventually does pick up.
The upcoming 'Fifty Shades of Grey' feature might not be everyone's cup of sexy tea, but leading lady Dakota Johnson would like to at least attempt to change the minds of potential viewers who don't think that anything—yes, anything—can be sexy with the right attitude. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' Johnson was tasked with reading off a series of decidedly unsexy lines, including stuff about Chapstick (?) and sweatpants (?) in an attempt to make them alluring.
If there's one thing that no one talks about enough, it's that Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are not only married, but that the very funny duo actually have a pint-sized baby boy together. How funny is that kid going to be? Despite baby boy Pratt's charmed life, he's already had to endure the indignity of one thing: air travel. More specifically: international air travel with an apparently irritable Mickey Rourke.
It's the moment we all knew would happen eventually -- and, based on the immediacy of the news cycle and when late night shows are actually filmed, it's the moment most of us also knew was happening yesterday -- but 'Daily Show' host Jon Stewart has finally announced his retirement after seventeen years at the news desk. Stewart's show films in the late evenings in New York City, so the news that he had announced his imminent retirement during a taping last night hit the wire many hours before the show actually aired.
Just when we thought the state of Comedy Central’s late-night lineup had settled, following Larry Wilmore’s ‘Nightly Show’ takeover from ‘The Colbert Report,’ ol’ Jon Stewart done spun us about once more. Word has come in that ‘The Daily Show’ host announced his retirement during tonight’s taping, ostensibly after Stewart’s current contract.
Steve Carell may be nominated for an Oscar for his recent turn in 'Foxcatcher,' but the now-lauded actor has never forgotten the pain of a bad review. More specifically, he's never forgotten the pain of a single bad review, one that compared his performance to standing in a morgue full of dead bodies, eventually determining that Carell's work was somehow worse than said dead bodies.
As part of a segment he likes to call “Fifty Accents,” host Jimmy Fallon set Dornan up with a “randomly chosen” (sure) accent and a passage from the E.L. James book that became a “global phenomenon.” It's both raunchy and weird, but at least it shows off a little bit of Dornan's range in a way that's (mostly) PG.
Thank goodness for iPad apps. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' host Jimmy Fallon -- who grows more California by the minute, as the show has temporarily relocated to the West Coast -- and guest Will Smith decided to finally give the people what they want: rapping. Well, sort of.
Jeff Bridges really, really, really wants to help you sleep. The 'Seventh Son' star recently popped up during the Super Bowl, touting, well, something during a somewhat strange and somewhat soothing commercial spot. Turns out, Bridges is actually selling what it looks like he's selling: sleep. Wait, what?
