Jonah Hill might want to work on his betting skills because he doesn't appear to understand the mechanics of it. The '22 Jump Street' star hit 'Conan' last night, alongside the other half of the burgeoning franchise's all-star comedic duo, Channing Tatum, to share some very weird (and very x-rated) tidbits about a bet the pair made quite awhile ago.
You may have heard that they are making a new 'Star Wars' film -- actually, they're making a whole mess of new 'Star Wars' films, but you get the drift. Even if you're well aware of the production, you probably don't react to any bit of news about the film in the same way as Conan O'Brien's all-grunting, all-groaning 'Star Wars' Nerdgasm Choir, making their debut on last night's 'Conan.'
This may sound hard to believe, but back when Conan O'Brien arrived in Los Angeles as a starry-eyed (and possibly starving) television writer about three decades ago, gigs weren't just raining from the sky. The future late-night host had to take on some strange bits to make ends meet, including popping up in this NAMM (that's National Association of Music Merchants, in case you're not hip to esoteric professional groups) training video as the "opinionated type of customer."
Although we don't know what's going to happen to CBS' 'The Late Late Show' after Craig Ferguson steps down from the gig later this year, comedian Norm Macdonald sure knows what he wants to happen. He wants that job! Mainly because the former 'SNL' star thinks it's kind of an easy position to fill. Could he possibly be right?
Don't Google "Eric Stonestreet naked." How about just you don't Google anyone naked? The 'Modern Family' star learned the hard way that it's best not to Google yourself for any reason, because you never know what horrifying stuff will pop up -- especially given the Photoshop talents of so many of the Internet's biggest tro-- uh, fans. The Internet's biggest fans.
We've had plenty of upsets across the late-night landscape in recent weeks, now that Larry Wilmore has been announced to take over 'The Colbert Report' slot from Stephen Colbert, who himself will take over for David Letterman's 'Late Show,' going head to head with Jimmy Fallon's new 'Tonight Show.' At least one host is staying in his place, however, as TBS guaranteed Conan O'Brien's 'Conan' to run through 2018.
Not sold on the rumored 'Star Wars: Episode 7' title, 'The Ancient Fear'? It's okay, you're not the only one; even director J.J. Abrams doesn't seem too excited to slap such a moniker on his first 'Star Wars' film (though, this is the guy who made a film called 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' so it certainly could be worse).
The Queen of All Media had to start somewhere, so it seems particularly sweet that Oprah Winfrey decided to share her first audition tape with her millions (billions?) of fans as a bit of both inspiration and big laughs. She was so serious! She was so interested in spelling things! She was so ... demonically possessed?
