Many celebrities would likely balk at turning their late night chat show appearance into a remembrance of a recently passed star -- too emotional, too sad, too something -- but Edward Norton not only took the time during his segment on last night's 'Late Show' to talk about director Mike Nichols with host David Letterman, he did it was style, grace, and some really lovely personal stories.

'Birdman' is Excellent, But Michael Keaton is Not Birdman

In Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ‘Birdman’ (which will close the New York Film Festival this weekend and, I'll add, is my favorite movie of the year), Michael Keaton plays Riggan Thomson, a veteran actor whose biggest claim to fame is that he used to be in a series of superhero movies. Now, Riggan is attempting to make his comeback by staging a Broadway play based on a Raymond Carver short story. It’s been lost on no one that Michael Keaton also used to be in a series of superhero movies and hasn’t had the most prolific output over the last 15 years – and is, now, making a comeback (of sorts) with ‘Birdman.’ For his part, Michael Keaton is distancing himself from this comparison, telling New York Magazine, “I related less to him than almost every other character I’ve played, in terms of the desperation.”

The new 'Birdman' trailer only confirms what we thought after the first preview from a few months ago: this is going to be one of the strangest movies of 2014 and we can't wait to see it. Not only does it feature the great Michael Keaton

Fox Searchlight released the first 'Birdman' trailer, featuring Michael Keaton as a washed-up actor known mainly for portraying a superhero, and it is one helluva of a preview. Evocative and dark, funny and strange, the footage has done what all trailers set out to do: it took something we didn't care about and made us desperate to see it.

The 10 Best 'SNL' Sketches of the 2013/2014 Season

The 39th season of 'Saturday Night Live' is over. From the beginning, it was a strange season -- gone were so many of the show's powerful voices: Hader, Samberg, Wiig, Sudeikis, Armisen -- yet this allowed new voices to be heard. And that's the thing about being new on 'SNL': not everything is going to hit. But, in compiling this list of the ten best sketches from the 2013-2014 season, there were some tough choices to be made (sorry, 'Bugs'). And, sadly, for inclusion, the sketch had to have actually appeared on the live show (sorry, 'Wing').
And, yes, this list is heavy with prerecorded material as opposed to live performances. (Perhaps it's not completely fair to compare, but, this is a testament of just how strong the prerecorded sketches are in a post-'Digital Short' world.) And it's also notable that none of the best sketches were recurring sketches (though, I could see at least one of these coming back next season). So, behold: The ten best sketches from this past season of 'Saturday Night Live.'

Released in 1998, 'Rounders' starred then-rising stars Matt Damon and Edward Norton as two best friends who enter the world of underground high-stakes poker to make enough money to pay off their large debts, but soon find themselves way in over their heads. Though it wasn't a huge success at the time, 'Rounders' went on to become a cult classic thanks to the growing popularity in poker tournaments around the world. Sixteen years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.

Jonathan Lethem's book 'Motherless Brooklyn' came out fifteen years ago in 1999, and Edward Norton has been trying to turn it into a movie ever since. After adapting the screenplay himself, now Norton finally has backing and the film will go in front of the cameras later this year.

As expected, this past weekend's 'SNL' installment featuring 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' star Edward Norton in his first hosting gig with musical guest Jenelle Monae proved largely uneven, though not without a few truly inspired bits. Sadly not among them was 'SNL's Halloween ballad "Don't Smash My Pumpkin," the deleted scene of which has made its way online.

'SNL' and Edward Norton Create a Wes Anderson Horror Movie

Wes Anderson's incredibly distinctive style has been parodied before, but rarely with the skill that 'SNL' and host Edward Norton displayed in the most recent episode of everyone's favorite comedy variety show. A pre-recorded bit, the fake trailer for 'The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders,' imagines what an Anderson-directed horror movie would look like and the results are near perfect.

Edward Norton hosts an all-new episode of 'SNL' tonight, and though he hasn't starred in a film since last year's 'The Bourne Legacy,' it's great to see him on the 30 Rock stage. Norton, who recently guest-starred on an episode of 'The Simpsons' and who appears next in Wes Anderson's upcoming film 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' is always a welcome presence on screens both big and small. So how did he do on tonight's 'SNL'? Read on for our review.
