"Why apples, Master Jobs?" "Apples frighten me." As Christian Bale inches ever closer to playing Steve Jobs in Aaron Sorkin's long-in-the-making biopic, expectations only continue to ratchet up. What would Bale-as-Jobs look like? How high would the intensity level be? Will there be much growling? Unexpectedly enough, Conan O'Brien has the answers you seek.

You probably know comedian T.J. Miller from his (extremely varied) film work, thanks to roles in the last 'Transformers' blockbuster and even a big turn in that 'Yogi Bear' movie, but Miller is also a prolific touring stand-up performer, and he relishes his time on the road. Oh, not just for the actual shows -- sure, they're great -- but for some of the marketing he has to do to get the word out. We're talking morning shows, people. Small market morning shows.
Jessica Alba's likeness has been committed to at least four action figures at this point -- the 'Dark Angel' doll, the 'Fantastic Four' figure, at least two 'Sin City' mini-Albas -- but that doesn't mean that the actress keeps the little hers around her house. In fact, Alba keeps them where they belong. In storage. Away from her family. Considering how racy her latest doll is, that's probably a good idea.
Rumors of 'Bad Boys 3' have swirled for years -- the last we heard, it was looking for a writer, though there was no word if stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith, and director Michael Bay would come back for another outing -- but it finally looks like things might be moving in the right direction. At least, if you think that Lawrence returning for more action is the right direction. (Hint: it is).
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.
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.
The cast of 'Orange Is the New Black' -- including Taylor Schilling, Jason Biggs, Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, Laverne Cox and Uzo Aduba -- took over 'Conan' last night, and when they weren't busy making everyone laugh, they were caught up in terrifying Conan O'Brien and sort of beating him into submission.
You know the drill by now: a big star hits up a late night talk show to chat, laugh, maybe play a game, plug their latest project, and show a clip. It's a standard way to do things, but you know who doesn't care about standard ways of doing things? Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. And, really, who are we to argue with him?
We already know that Conan O'Brien is super stoked about his latest star turn in sure-to-be-blockbuster 'Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda' -- the man did already buy his own billboard to boast about his performance -- but that doesn't mean that we as an audience are that excited to see him in the new feature. Really, what's the 'Conan' host going to do with a lil cameo in a monster movie?
Sure, when you think of actors who have died a lot on screen, there's probably one name that instantly comes to mind: Sean Bean. But don't let the 'Game of Thrones' actor's constant dying-off fool you, there are lots of other actors who bite it all the time. Like Gary Oldman, who is apparently in the top ten of actors who die the most on screen (who exactly is crunching these numbers?).
