Jason Momoa is tight-lipped. Sure, the former 'Game of Thrones' and future 'Batman v Superman' star is happy to be on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' to chat it up with professed big fan Jimmy Kimmel, but he's not going to let anything slip about the worst kept secret in Hollywood right now -- that he's playing Aquaman in the next major DC comic book movie. Admittedly, though, he sure looks nervous about it.
Jimmy Kimmel Live
'Jimmy Kimmel Live' host Jimmy Kimmel likes to have fun with his recurring "celebrities read mean tweets about themselves" segments, which always manage to be fun and strange and not too painful. Of course, if you know anything about Twitter trolls, you know that the tweets the Kimmel team picks are not nearly the meanest of the mean, they're just the right mix of rude and amusing. There are certainly much meaner tweets out there, and some celebrities actually want those.
Star Lena Headey hit up 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' to chat about this past season and what's in store for her (and Cersei) in the future. Host Jimmy Kimmel asked about Headey's familiarity with the books, and her answer was quite cute (along with the image of her mom greedily digging into the books to find the best Cersei stuff). Who knew anything 'Game of Thrones' related could be so sweet?
Actor and rap legend Ice Cube can be pretty intense -- it's part of his charm, really! -- and his signature angry face and enraged voice only add to the laughs in this week's '22 Jump Street.' (Yes, pretty much just like they did with 2012's '21 Jump Street'). Cube is so intense, in fact, that he can make anything (even nice things) sound super-serious, a skill that Jimmy Kimmel put to the test on his show last night.
HBO's smash hit 'Game of Thrones' can get pretty wordy, which is why Kristian Nairn's singular performance as Hodor ("Hodor!") is so welcome. With just a one-word vocabulary, Hodor still manages to be a fan favorite -- but that doesn't mean that his unique skills can translate to other television shows, like, oh, 'Family Feud.'
Jimmy Kimmel has apparently always wanted to get basketball great Michael Jordan to appear on his late-night show as a guest. It's never happened (sad face to Jimmy), but he won't be deterred. When he had the chance to snag some time with Jordan during a recent golf tournament, he went for it and made the NBA superstar palm random objects, all for the amusement of his studio audience.
If you're an expectant father, the currently pregnant Mila Kunis has a big, fat message for you: stop saying "we're pregnant."
Every year, Jimmy Kimmel invites the Scripps Spelling Bee champion on to his show for a star-studded face-off (by "star-studded," we mean that some Kimmel regulars run the sketch, this year featured Cousin Sal and Guillermo) to see if the late-night host can take down the newly crowned kids. This year provided a bit of a bigger challenge than normal, considering that the Scripps was won by two winners.
If there was one thing last week's box office winner, Disney's revisionist tale 'Maleficent,' was missing, it was rap stars. There's not a single rapper in the entire film, it's all just Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie and wood nymphs and spinning needles and such. No Ice Cube. No Ice-T. No Eminem. And this injustice will not stand -- because 50 Cent is out to correct it with his new feature film, 'Malefiftycent.'
