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.
Late Night - Page 5
‘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?
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).
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.
‘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?
Things apparently got buckwild on the set of ‘Into the Woods,’ with acting queen of the world (that is her official title, by the way) Meryl Streep very nearly dying (read: probably not dying, but let’s go with it) when she almost fell off a table. It was, however, a witchy table that she happened to be jumping on while playing a witch, complete with witchy robes, which she (witchily?) tripped on. Streep’s fall was broken by one single brave soul: Emily Blunt.
John Goodman has hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ a lot—13 times, to be precise—and the veteran actor has seen plenty of sketches come and go, including a few that probably just couldn’t be salvaged (even if they did star Will Ferrell and/or a bunch of very expensive chairs). On last night’s ‘Late Night,’ Goodman shared some of his very favorites with host (and former ‘SNL’ co-writer) Seth Myers.
What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving week than with a good, old-fashioned game of Jimmy Kimmel’s ‘Celebrity Curse Off,’ one that pairs two of America’s most beloved sitcom stars—former ‘Friends,’ there's nothing more American than that—in a foul-mouthed competition to the death? Fine, no one actually died during the latest round of the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ but there was plenty of chest-glutching and gasping.
Seth Rogen and James Franco might be good pals and one of Hollywood’s most unlikely--and beloved!--comedy duos, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t step back and see each other for who they really are. For instance, Rogen thinks Franco is “a weird guy,” much like, well, most of America. Weirdly, though, Rogen promises that Franco is perhaps slightly less weird than we all think he is.
"Are you-- are you the Hulk?" Prepare yourself for, quite possibly, the most adorable and charming story about mistaken superhero identity ever. Sure, Mark Ruffalo plays the Hulk as part of 'The Avengers,' but we all know that he's not actually the Hulk...right? Well, if you happen to be a pre-schooler, that line might be a little (understandably) blurred. This is a bit of an issue when non-Hulk Ruffalo participates in normal activities -- including being the parent of a pre-schooler.
