During the taping of last night's 'Conan,' the heartbreaking news of Robin Williams' passing was announced. Instead of ignoring the news or saving it for tomorrow or not acknowledging it, host Conan O'Brien took it upon himself to share it with a shocked studio audience, sidekick Andy Richter, and guest Will Arnett. Still stunned and reeling from the news, the trio -- all of whom had worked with Williams in the past -- shared their thoughts on the actor and comedian.
LeVar Burton's beloved 'Reading Rainbow' may be coming back to us -- and soon, thanks to a very profitable Kickstarter campaign -- but that doesn't mean it's going to look exactly like it did in its first incarnation. And that's okay! Turns out, Burton is hip to the changing media landscape (again, he used Kickstarter to fund the new show), and that includes social media, especially Twitter.
Pretty much everything you need to know about the Michael Fassbender-starring 'Frank' is contained in the above video. The offbeat Sundance pick is about a musical dreamer who joins up with a hip band -- The Soronprfbs -- and is intrigued by their nutty leader (Frank, played by Fassbender), a genius who insists on wearing a giant fake head all the time. He's...a little strange.
Will Arnett's latest feature film, 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,' is heavy on the kicking and punching -- it is about turtles who like karate, after all -- but that doesn't necessarily mean that the funny guy has his own martial arts chops. When the comedian hit up 'The Tonight Show' last night to chat about the film, host Jimmy Fallon couldn't help but challenge him to a kicking-based game: Karate Pinata, a combination of ancient disciplines and modern party games.
'American Horror Story' showrunner Ryan Murphy demands a lot of things from his cast -- especially as he approaches season 4 -- from getting comfy and cozy with snakes to doing strange things with their real-life pals to not talking about the show ever, ever, ever. The anthology series has long been shrouded in mystery, with cast and crew going so far as to straight up lie to people about what they can expect from upcoming seasons. Star Sarah Paulson is one of Murphy's most dedicated secret-keepers, at least until she hits the 'Late Night' and almost lets loose to host Seth Meyers.
Although you'd think that starring in Richard Linklater's 'Boyhood' -- a film that took twelve years to make -- would be a labor of love, star Ethan Hawke found a way to make the project even more personally appealing. He used it as an audition for the next 'Star Wars' movie. Well, sort of.
Poor Nick Cannon. Perhaps the 'Tonight Show' guest realized he'd want to hide after last night's show, thus deciding to kit himself out in a camouflage suit before he even hit the stage. Cannon was paired up with Megan Fox during the latest round of Jimmy Fallon-approved Pictionary, and the pair turned in a ... well, it was a pretty dismal performance.
Stephen Colbert takes issues with a lot of things on 'The Colbert Report' -- old people making new friends, the Second Amendment, and graphics that aren't blatantly American enough. The funnyman is also permanently on edge when it comes to the possibility that Hillary Clinton will run for president and her constant name-dropping, especially as it litters her new book, 'Hard Choices.' It's just egregious! How can she possibly have so many friends? And when does she find the time to hang out with all of them?
Actress Eva Green has never balked at a nude scene -- her very first film, 'The Dreamers,' even featured some shots of her in the buff, and she'll next be mainly nude for 'Sin City 2.' The actress is comfortable with this stuff, and understands when it's important and essential to a part. But that doesn't mean that her family, especially her dad, is onboard with this particular facet of her career.
Though the turmoil of late night turnover in 2014 has passed, 'The Late Late Show' host Craig Ferguson had been the last of the impending empty seats, following the announcement of his departure. Now, a new report claims that not only will CBS continue with 'The Late Late Show,' but with 'Into the Woods' star James Corden filling Ferguson's spot as host.
