Have you ever wondered what Gotham City is really like? (For the sake of this exercise, please ignore that the city is a fictitious comic book construction.) Do the people there really care about Batman? What else does the city have to offer both residents and visitors? Is it nice? Where is it located? All these questions and more...well, might not be actually answered by this hilarious 'Late Night With Seth Meyers' sketch, but it comes pretty close.
Late Night with Seth Meyers
Former 'SNL' head writer Seth Meyers has made it his business to bring some of those sketches cut from 'SNL' to his own 'Late Night' show, and the results have so far been uproarious. While Will Forte's cut bit got the full sketch treatment a few months ago, Bill Hader didn't need those same bells and whistles. After all, his snipped sketch just involved him putting on a weirdly nuanced impression of '60 Minutes' anchor Bob Simon.
You know what's scary? That 'Jurassic Park' never got a theme song with catchy, snappy, and applicable lyrics. You know what's even scarier? The possibility that such a song does indeed exist, and that Jeff Goldlbum wants you to hear it. No, really. He's here to sing it for you, too. Get in on this, fans of dinosaurs run amok, because this is a game-changer.
America's most patriotic newsman and late night host, Stephen Colbert's interests tend to run quite firmly to the red, white, and blue, so it should come as little surprise that the funny man is obsessed with Marvel's own Captain America. But he's not just run-of-the-mill, "oh, I like comic books" obsessed -- he's obsessed enough to land his very own Captain America cover, which he shared with 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers last night.
Seth Meyers has been taking a little bit of time off from 'Late Night' to prep for a very big, very primetime gig as host of the 2014 Emmys. He's even had to temporarily decamp to Los Angeles to get ready for the show, a trip that apparently involved some very fraught air travel. Turns out, when you're hosting the Emmys, you need TV props, and most of our most lauded shows involve items that, well, just aren't air travel friendly.
Looks like Mickey Rourke is down with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, because Seth Meyers did not skimp on the ice, the water, or the "bucket" on last night's 'Late Night.' Rourke appeared on the show to chat about next week's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,' but things soon turned to more pressing
'American Horror Story' showrunner Ryan Murphy demands a lot of things from his cast -- especially as he approaches season 4 -- from getting comfy and cozy with snakes to doing strange things with their real-life pals to not talking about the show ever, ever, ever. The anthology series has long been shrouded in mystery, with cast and crew going so far as to straight up lie to people about what they can expect from upcoming seasons. Star Sarah Paulson is one of Murphy's most dedicated secret-keepers, at least until she hits the 'Late Night' and almost lets loose to host Seth Meyers.
'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Chris Pratt may be showing off his body more than, uh, usual in this week's new Marvel release (evidence below, and that's just a small sample), but just because the actor got in shape for the part doesn't mean it's the first time he's used his body for a role. Oh, no! Turns out, Pratt broke away from the bonds of clothing before, particularly on NBC's 'Parks and Recreation.'
If there's one thing you need to remember about comedians, it's that despite the chuckles, belly laughs, and guffaws that they can inspire in other people, they tend to be kind of grumpy on their own. Just look at Ricky Gervais! He's been nominated for yet another Emmy (he's already won two), but all the guy can think about is the thank you that's owed to him from yet another comedian, who just so happens to also be an Emmy nominee.
You know who Kate McKinnon is? (Yes, you know who she is. She's one of the best things on 'SNL,' but that's not where this is going.) Kate McKinnon is someone who cares very deeply about cats. Just because she wrote and performed a skit with Charlize Theron about crazy cat shelter ladies does not mean she does not care about cats.
