Both ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Hobbit’ franchises will come to an end in the next few weeks, and given Stephen Colbert’s unabashed love for all things Tolkien, we’ve seen a great deal of cross-promotion. The latest might be the most impressive yet however, as Colbert interviews none other than the dragon Smaug himself, live on the set!

'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon has so far conducted fake mountain top-set "intense staredowns" with such genuinely intense dudes as Jared Leto and Robert Downey, Jr., both of which ended up being mostly amusing, only slightly weird outings. For his latest eyeball-popper, however, Fallon finally went full weird, with Dwayne Johnson assisting as his staring partner.

Mark Wahlberg has starred in a hefty number of effects-laden films—‘Transformers,’ anyone?—but the actor remains exceedingly well-known for a single movie prop. We’ll give you a hint: it’s from ‘Boogie Nights.’ It’s large. It’s unwieldy. Fine, it’s the prosthetic man-part that Wahlberg wore for most of the feature, and it’s the only prop he’s ever kept.

Has Steve Carell entered the “Hey, just do whatever you want!” part of his career? Probably, and good for him! And good for us, because that means we get lots of special, weird things to watch, like this clip of Steve Carell and a barbershop quartet crooning Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” to an extremely confused studio audience.

Great news, everyone: The horror and darkness have creeped back into ‘American Horror Story’ at last. And while the continuing narrative of Jimmy the Hero vs. Dandy the Villain doesn’t quite manage to be something greater than the sum of its parts, the ‘Freak Show’ delivers the first solid episode in weeks. The ghosts of the past invade the present with a surreal quality that echoes the way Jimmy’s brain is clouded by alcohol, or the way Dell—through misery and frustrating uncertainty—writes and rewrites his intended suicide letter. But it’s Dandy and Stanley who bring the real discomfort and unease to “Tupperware Party Massacre.”

Where can we find her, a woman like that? HBO’s ‘True Detective’ seeks to answer this very question, and will go straight to the source for an answer. That’s right, “Jessie’s Girl” artist Rick Springfield will lend his vocal and physical talents to the dark and dreary drama serial with a part in ‘True Detective’ season 2, and we’d tell you who he is, but the point is probably moot.
