Bootleg 'Star Wars: Episode 7' Cast Members Found in the 'Conan' Audience

by Kate Erbland May 01, 2014 09:58 AM
Now that we (finally) know which stars we can expect to see in J.J. Abrams' 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' you'd think the fervor over the film's casting choices would have worn off just a tiny bit. You would be wrong. Turns out, 'Star Wars' madness is just getting started, but that doesn't mean that every piece of information about the film is totally hidden.

Donald Sterling Has Lots More to Say in Conan O'Brien's "Unearthed" Tapes

by Kate Erbland April 30, 2014 11:44 AM
If there's anyone who could find even a smidgen of actual humor in the entire Donald Sterling incident, it just might be Conan O'Brien. The late-night host took to 'Conan' last night to put a spin on the Los Angeles Clippers owners' recorded racist rant, and it's one that has a pretty clever series of punchlines.

Chelsea Handler Assures Conan She Is Not Retiring

by Kate Erbland April 29, 2014 09:42 AM
If you've been following the late-night show shake-ups of the past few months -- starting with Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers taking over the NBC slots, moving right into David Letterman announcing his retirement, and currently stalled out with the news that Craig Ferguson will also be leaving his own CBS show -- you might also be aware that Chelsea Handler is leaving her own E! show. But she is not retiring.

How Tracy Morgan's Alter Ego Got Him Kicked Out of Prince's House

by Kate Erbland April 18, 2014 09:17 AM
It's hard to imagine that anyone's partying technique would be too much for Prince's tastes; this is, after all, a man who sings about partying like it's 1999 and the sexiness of cheap thrift-store finds with equal adoration. However, it seems that there is at least one person who is too freaky for even Prince to handle. Chico Divine. Who? Chico Divine? Who? Tracy Morgan's freaky-partying alter ego.

'Orphan Black' Star Tatiana Maslany Shares Horrific German Fairy Tale on 'Conan'

by Kate Erbland April 17, 2014 09:59 AM
Fairy tales may seem fun and whimsical and sweet now, but the histories of most of them are dark and truly terrifying. Perhaps you are familiar with Hans Christian Andersen, who penned the original 'Little Mermaid' fairy tale, one that ended, well, it just ended very differently than the Disney version. But Andersen wasn't the only author who used his fairy tales to freak kids out. Over in Germany, Heinrich Hoffmann did the same thing with his 'Der Struwwelpeter,' and guess who grew up reading it?

Nathan Fillion Tells Conan How He Paints His Girlfriend's Toes With Superheroes

by Kate Erbland April 16, 2014 09:17 AM
Fan favorite Nathan Fillion apparently has a whole slew of talents that exist far outside the realm of acting. For instance, did you know that the 'Castle' and 'Firefly' star is a skilled nail design artist? And that he uses his talents to paint his girlfriend's toes? With little tiny superhero iconography? Is this man the best boyfriend on the planet?

Conan O'Brien Shares His 'American Hustle' Inspired Hair Secrets

by Kate Erbland April 15, 2014 09:42 AM
Conan O'Brien spent this past weekend hosting something a little different than his normal late night show -- the funny man took over the MTV Movie Awards, where he still managed to put his own spin on the typically tween-heavy outing (do tweens even know who Conan O'Brien is? They do now!).

Classic Literature or a Random Tweet? 'Silicon Valley' Star Kumail Nanjiani Quiz Is Mind-Boggling

by Kate Erbland April 09, 2014 01:16 PM
The Library of Congress has long catalogued great works of art -- think films and books -- but it recently started doing the same thing to each and every tweet ever sent (neither great nor arty). As a newly minted 'Silicon Valley' star, stand-up comedian and Twitter hero in his own right, Kumail Nanjiani finds this appropriately hilarious, but he also sees some potential problems with it.

Christina Hendricks Knows At Least One Thing About 'Game of Thrones'

by Kate Erbland April 08, 2014 09:52 AM
Christina Hendricks is the star of one of television's most beloved shows -- that would be 'Mad Men,' if you are out of the loop -- which probably keeps her too busy to enjoy other shows. The actress recently told a reporter on the red carpet that she'd love to be on another one of TV's most popular shows, 'Game of Thrones,' and she has a tidbit to share.

Comic-Conan! We're just barely shaking off the workload from last year's Comic-Con 2013 as we prepare for the big show this summer, but it seems Conan O'Brien is making plans even further down the line. TBS will send the 'Conan' host to San Diego for an entire week of shows to correspond with Comic-Con, though sadly in 2015, rather than this year.
