There's this movie -- just a space opera in the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- that's coming out next week: 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' Maybe you've heard of it. Late-night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel is probably counting on that, because he basically let the cast of the film, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, run the show on last night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'
Gary Oldman is hard at work apologizing for some ill-informed and offensive comments he made during a recent 'Playboy' interview, and while he could have just issued a statement and hid out for awhile, the actor took to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' to issue a pretty serious apology to a straight-faced Jimmy Kimmel.
Jason Momoa is tight-lipped. Sure, the former 'Game of Thrones' and future 'Batman v Superman' star is happy to be on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' to chat it up with professed big fan Jimmy Kimmel, but he's not going to let anything slip about the worst kept secret in Hollywood right now -- that he's playing Aquaman in the next major DC comic book movie. Admittedly, though, he sure looks nervous about it.
Actor and rap legend Ice Cube can be pretty intense -- it's part of his charm, really! -- and his signature angry face and enraged voice only add to the laughs in this week's '22 Jump Street.' (Yes, pretty much just like they did with 2012's '21 Jump Street'). Cube is so intense, in fact, that he can make anything (even nice things) sound super-serious, a skill that Jimmy Kimmel put to the test on his show last night.
HBO's smash hit 'Game of Thrones' can get pretty wordy, which is why Kristian Nairn's singular performance as Hodor ("Hodor!") is so welcome. With just a one-word vocabulary, Hodor still manages to be a fan favorite -- but that doesn't mean that his unique skills can translate to other television shows, like, oh, 'Family Feud.'
Jimmy Kimmel has apparently always wanted to get basketball great Michael Jordan to appear on his late-night show as a guest. It's never happened (sad face to Jimmy), but he won't be deterred. When he had the chance to snag some time with Jordan during a recent golf tournament, he went for it and made the NBA superstar palm random objects, all for the amusement of his studio audience.
If you're an expectant father, the currently pregnant Mila Kunis has a big, fat message for you: stop saying "we're pregnant."
Every year, Jimmy Kimmel invites the Scripps Spelling Bee champion on to his show for a star-studded face-off (by "star-studded," we mean that some Kimmel regulars run the sketch, this year featured Cousin Sal and Guillermo) to see if the late-night host can take down the newly crowned kids. This year provided a bit of a bigger challenge than normal, considering that the Scripps was won by two winners.
If there was one thing last week's box office winner, Disney's revisionist tale 'Maleficent,' was missing, it was rap stars. There's not a single rapper in the entire film, it's all just Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie and wood nymphs and spinning needles and such. No Ice Cube. No Ice-T. No Eminem. And this injustice will not stand -- because 50 Cent is out to correct it with his new feature film, 'Malefiftycent.'
