Typically, when the 'Tonight Show' trots out one of their meticulously matched up music compilations, it's newsman Brian Williams who is tasked with "singing" whatever Jimmy Fallon and his band of evil geniuses have determined is most fitting. This time around, however, Williams is out, and a pair of topical public figures are very much in: Taylor Swift and President Barack Obama.
Late Night - Page 5
'Late Night' host Seth Meyers has basically invented a new subset of trivia with a consistent question he likes to ask on his late night talk show: amazing 'SNL' sketches that never aired, no matter how much their creators loved them. Meyers has made it a (totally awesome) habit to ask other 'SNL' alums who hit his show what sketches they're most bummed about never making it on the air, and the results are so far incredible.
Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey are pretty tight these days -- their starring roles in Christopher Nolan's upcoming 'Interstellar' certainly helped seal that up -- which means they're not afraid to get kind of goofy around each other. Hathaway especially.
We've known for some time now that 'The Colbert Report' would say goodbye as Stephen moves on to bigger and better things at CBS' 'Late Show,' but we at last have a departure point. Comedy Central has officially scheduled the last 'Colbert Report' for mid December, but when can we run screaming at the gates to say goodbye?
On Tuesday night, Daniel Radcliffe shocked the world with his amazingly great performance (with help from The Roots) of the Blackalicious song, ‘Alphabet Aerobics.’ On Thursday afternoon, we spoke to a still-quite-excited-about-his-performance Radcliffe (who is promoting his new movie, ‘Horns’; the full interview will publish on Friday) who explains how all of this happened and how Questlove almost scared him out of doing the performance in the first place.
Jim Carrey has plenty of trademark characters to trot out -- Ace Ventura, the Cable Guy, Fire Marshall Bill, the Riddler (wait, scratch that one) -- but the funny man seems to be quite recently endeared to a new, highly specific one: fellow actor Matthew McConaughey in his Lincoln commercials. Carrey debuted his take on the admittedly overly dreamy commercials during last week's 'Saturday Night Live,' but he's not done with it just yet.
It's been a big week in the world of 'The Avengers'. There was the official trailer, the extended trailer, our set visit report, a bootleg clip and even the trailer for the third 'Avengers' movie, 'Avengers: Infinity War'. But, even with all those things, nothing can top the 'Avengers 2' trailer as voiced by Pee-wee Herman.
Today in news you'll love so much that you might as well marry it: we're definitely getting a new Pee-wee Herman movie! Although rumors about a third Paul Reubens-starring feature have persisted for years, Reubens himself finally answered them on last night's 'Tonight Show': yes, there's plenty more Pee-wee to come.
Dear all other hosts of late night: if you were hoping to somehow sang the 'Game of Thrones' demographic by bringing stars of the hit HBO series on to your stage for a friendly chat, you're going to have to do much, much more than that now. Seth Meyers has bested you in a big way.
Daniel Radcliffe's name may be forever synonymous with 'Harry Potter,' but the British actor has already proven that his talents extend far beyond playing the boy wizard on the big screen. He can do the Broadway thing! He's got a nifty fake American accent! He can rap! Wait...what?
