‘The Force Awakens’ Cast Sings the ‘Star Wars’ Theme A Cappella With Jimmy Fallon

by ScreenCrush Staff December 16, 2015 @ 9:09 AM
When you’re out promoting a movie, you’re often asked to do a lot of things, most of them pretty silly. With the amount of press the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was being asked to do, there were asked to do a lot of silly things, none perhaps as silly as going on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and singing a medley of Star Wars music a cappella. But the entire cast — including Harrison Ford! — actually commits, and it actually turns out to pretty fun.

It’s difficult to say if Trevor Noah has found his particular Daily Show groove after ascending the throne from Jon Stewart in September, but where Noah hasn’t generally shied away from challenging guests, at least one punch has been pulled. Following controversial announcements of a Chris Brown interview, The Daily Show appears to have quietly canceled the appearance.

Here’s Stephen Colbert’s Touching Paris Tribute, Including a Call to Watch ‘Ratatouille’

by Kevin Fitzpatrick November 17, 2015 @ 9:35 AM
Stephen Colbert was among the first late-night programs to express his emotions over the Friday Paris attacks, tagging a brief announcement (sans audience) at the close of his Friday Late Show. The Monday outing went far more in depth however, staging a heartfelt tribute as Colbert urged viewers to show support in whatever way possible, either french fries or Ratatouille.

‘Last Week Tonight With John Oliver’ Delivers ‘Premium Cable Profanity’ Rant on Paris Attacks

by Kevin Fitzpatrick November 16, 2015 @ 9:16 AM
The late Friday occurrence of Paris’ tragic terror attacks left many late-night programs without a pulpit to address the events, though weekend shows managed to extend their support. Last Week Tonight With John Oliver went just a bit further with its Sunday run, however, as Oliver laid into the attackers as “unconscionable flaming a–holes.”

James McAvoy Picks Which of His Fellow X-Men Has the Lamest Superpower

by ScreenCrush Staff November 13, 2015 @ 2:00 PM
Having a superpower would be pretty awesome for any of us to have, but that doesn’t mean that all superpowers are created equal. For every “faster than a speeding bullet” there’s someone like Chlorophyll Kid, who can make plants grow. James McAvoy is currently playing one of the superheroes with the best powers — the telepath Professor X in the X-Men movies — and was asked what he thought the worst superpower would be, and he quickly threw one of his co-stars under the bus.

Every year, the non sports-inclined among us await the series granted a post-Super Bowl slot, and Stephen Colbert will make history in the process. The Late Show With Stephen Colbert has landed a spot as the first late-night talk series to follow the Super Bowl, and with a live show at that.

Harrison Ford Talks ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ While Dressed as a Hot Dog

by ScreenCrush Staff October 30, 2015 @ 8:29 AM
Harrison Ford appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to talk publicly for the first time about breaking his ankle on the set of Star Wars, crashing his plane and how Star Wars: The Force Awakens is an “incredible” movie. Oh, we should also mention he did all this while dressed up as a hot dog.

Stephen Colbert Predicts the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Ending

by Mike Sampson October 29, 2015 @ 8:58 AM
Stephen Colbert may be the wildly successful host of a popular late night talk show on a major television network, but that doesn’t change who he really is: a huge nerd. Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson said of Colbert, “I have never met a bigger Tolkien geek in my life.” The Late Show host appeared in The Desolation of Smaug and hosted a Hobbit panel at Comic-Con. But his geek cred is not limited to Middle Earth. Last night, Colbert delivered an impassioned prediction of how Star Wars: The Force Awakens will end, and the funniest thing is, he wasn’t joking.

How was your Future Day? Did you call anyone a bojo? Get into an altercation with bionically-modified street toughs? Get bummed out that the Cubs won’t actually win the World Series this year? Take out a second loan on your house to afford a down payment on some sneakerrs with power laces?

Jay Leno Refused an Appearance in Letterman’s Final Shows

by Kevin Fitzpatrick October 7, 2015 @ 1:00 PM
As October approaches a midway, we’ve comfortably settled into a late-night landscape that sees Stephen Colbert taking over The Late Show for David Letterman, and well after Jay Leno finally abandoned The Tonight Show to Jimmy Fallon. That hasn’t stopped the old guard from feuding now and again, as it seems Leno pointedly refused to take part in Letterman’s final CBS sendoff.
