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.
Late Night - Page 6
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?
Well, almost the entire cast. 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon is really get into Los Angeles living during this week's sojourn to the land of sun and fun, and no ode to California would be complete without a loving nod to the ultimate Cali show: 'Saved By the Bell.'
Sigh. 'The Tonight Show' temporarily moves to Los Angeles -- Hollywood, Tinsel Town, The Big Grapefruit, only one of those is a real nickname -- and is suddenly just flooded with random star power. Zzzzz.
Here's the natural progression of any good celebrity impersonation: inception. 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon enjoys dabbling in a good star impression from time to time, especially as it applies to musicians -- the guy loves to sing! and he's pretty good at aping famous voices! -- including folk hero Neil Young.
It's okay if all you really want out of life is for Chris "Star-Lord" Pratt and Chris "Captain America" Evans to be best pals. We want that, too. You know who else wants that? Jimmy Fallon. And the Super Bowl. And everyone else in the entire world.
Celebrities have feelings, too. Even when you think you're just talking random smack about them in the wide world of the internet (web?), you're still talking random smack about real people. If you're tweeting mean stuff? They might see it. And it might hurt them.
