'Game of Thrones' creator George R.R. Martin's infamous "Red Wedding" chapter has been available to read in 'A Storm of Swords' for the better part of 13 years now, but only recently have more casual fans of the HBO series adaptation been aware of the bloody massacre from Sunday's "The Rains of Castamere." Filmed fan reactions to the event made the rounds this week, but what does Martin himself say when confronted with the reactions on 'Conan'?
" a good actor, but, hell, I'm Willie Nelson!" That's right, you are.
The legendary country star and marijuana enthusiast turns 80 years old on Tuesday, but instead of us honoring him with a gift, he's given the world the best thing ever -- a spoof audition reel for 'The Hobbit 2.' What would the Peter Jackson-directed films look like with Nelson in the role of Gandalf? Here's a taste.
Amazingly enough, given all the 'Tonight Show' commotion of late surrounding Jimmy Fallon's triumphant ascent to the throne vacated by Jay Leno in 2014, and most people are turning to Conan O'Brien for a reaction. TBS's 'Conan' host had famously won the coveted 'Tonight Show' hosting job in 2009, only to have it snatched away from a returning Leno, so what does Conan himself have to say on the latest shocker from NBC?
Conan O'Brien has been curiously silent about today's big 'Tonight Show' shake-up, but it seems the zombie apocalypse outside his recent Atlanta production may have taken precedence. Following Sunday's big 'The Walking Dead' season 3 finale "Welcome to the Tombs," several of the cast invaded the Tuesday episode of 'Conan' in character, with impressively hilarious results. See 'The Walking Dead' invade 'Conan' inside!
Throw some new tallies on both sides of the 'Arrested Development' season 4 board? Last night, the once and future 'Arrested Development' star Will Arnett dropped by 'Conan' in promotion of NBC's 'Up All Night,' but couldn't resist sharing a few secrets of the upcoming 'Arrested Development' reunion, particularly with two of his cast-mates sitting beside him! That's right, not only will Andy Richter return for the revival, but his late night boss Conan O'Brien will put in an appearance as well!
The events of September 11, 2001 will forever be engraved in American history as one of the most tragic events, and the most impactful moment of our lifetime. But while the country collectively grieved over the human casualties, none were more affected than the residents of New York City. It was there that the devastation occurred and it was there that the survivors, the families of the victims and the city itself had to rebuild their lives.
At the time, most couldn't find the proper words to address the situation, but despite this challenge, it was left to all the late-night shows and media outlets that we often turn to for guidance to help us make sense of 9/11 and help us move on.
Shark Week is that one time a year we all eagerly anticipate sitting in front of the tube and getting a load of some crazy action courtesy of our sharp toothed friends of the deep. But Conan O'Brien wants to change all that.
"Forget Shark Week," he said on this week's episode of 'Conan.' Instead of geeking out over the ocean's most frightening creature (other than Godzilla, obviously), Conan recommends that you take a look at his own future hit series Shaq Week.
Conan O'Brien saw both of the latest teaser trailers for Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' -- he saw the luxurious landscapes, the nostalgic image of a child running around his lawn in a Superman cape, and he heard the graceful uplifting music playing just before the most iconic superhero went skyrocketing through the clouds -- and he was not impressed.
Conan O'Brien has been doing his show live in Chicago for the past week and what trip to Chicago would be complete without a visit to the famous Weiner Circle. The Weiner Circle is known for its tasty hot dogs (and its rude workers who berate the customers). So as an experiment, Conan sent two people to try it out. The nicest person he knows - '30 Rock' star Jack McBrayer - and the meanest person he knows - Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog. Hilarity ensues.
For all you high school seniors about to head off to college after this summer, you may be nervous about the new experience or sad that you're leaving your hometown friends behind, but let me tell you this: college is awesome. You will have a lot of fun. And if you're anything like the students at The California Institute of the Arts, you'll get to see 'Community' star Alison Brie walk around naked.
