You'd think Jimmy Kimmel's parents would get a little heads up that their son was hosting the 2017 Academy Awards, but according to the talk show host, that wasn't the case.
Et caught up with Kimmel at the Los Angeles premiere of Office Christmas Party on Wednesday night, where he admitted to leaving his parents out of the loop.
"I forgot to tell my parents, and then they found out online," he confessed. "So, that's probably the best feedback I got."
Kimmel took to Twitter on Monday to confirm that he'd be hosting the show on Feb. 26.
"This is not a prank," he wrote. "And if it is, my revenge on the Academy will be terrible and sweet."
Kimmel's definitely got a lot on his plate lately. The 49-year-old »
With Rogue One nearly here, many are taking a look back at The Force Awakens, too often with a harsher eye than's needed. While there are some bad points to be made, Episode VII managed to succeed in the most crucial of areas that sets a precedent for all that's coming.
Things are often clearer in hindsight, as the thrill of the moment wears off, imperfections become more focused. This isn’t a bad thing, but in terms of the entertainment industry oftentimes it gets taken too far. Minor problems become focal points for full-scale takedowns and denouncements, while the good points are marginalized. This is especially true for major/beloved franchises wherein they’re so popular some people can’t seem to wait to knock them down a peg.
With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on the horizon, and preview footage garnering plenty of accolades, I’ve started »

Ryan Gosling learned how to really cut a rug for his new musical dramedy La La Land! And, while the handsome star told Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday that he'd already mostly forgotten everything about dancing, he was still able to show the late night host how to waltz.
"I remember the waltzing, that's pretty easy, but I don't remember the tap dancing," Gosling explained.
"Is waltzing easy?" Kimmel asked.
"I think I know where this is going," Gosling said, suspiciously. "Are you asking me to show you how to waltz?"
As it turns out, it went exactly where he was expecting.
"I only know the guy parts, so that puts you in an interesting position," Gosling warned.
The two stood nearly cheek-to-cheek in front of Kimmel's desk as his band played some traditional waltzing music and Gosling got into his "strict »
Director Denis Villeneuve is currently having one hell of a run in Hollywood. His last three movies, Prisoners, Sicario and Arrival, have been met with a lot of critical acclaim and have also done well at the box office. With Arrival, he could even be looking at some Oscar recognition this year. His next movie, like Arrival, is sticking to the sci-fi genre, but this time he is taking on a long-awaited sequel to a major classic in the form of Blade Runner 2. We don't know much about the movie, but the director recently made it clear that the true identity of Rick Deckard will probably remain somewhat ambiguous.
The Playlist uncovered an interview that Denis Villeneuve did with a French publication named Allocine in honor of Blade Runner 2049 (the official title for Blade Runner 2) completing filming. During the interview, the filmmaker discussed the possibility of revealing whether or »
Real life is often boring and/or awful, so mankind was presented with a wonderful gift a few weeks ago when Carrie Fisher revealed that she and Harrison Ford had an affair while filming Star Wars in the ’70s. It was the sort of story that everyone can enjoy, whether you’re a fan of Star Wars, extramarital affairs, or gossip about which iconic movie stars are bad in bed, but Fisher later suggested that Ford was probably mad at her for exposing their old secrets. That addendum seemed like it would be the end of the saga, but now Entertainment Tonight has caught up with Mark Hamill to see if he has any thoughts on this whole affair thing.
Unfortunately for anyone hoping for more Hollywood drama, though, it turns out that Hamill had no idea it was happening at the time. He was too busy being young and »

For the longest time, questions have been raised over the true identity of Harrison Ford’s Deckard. Put simply, is he human, or replicant? It’s a debate that will now continue into the release of Blade Runner 2049, according to director Denis Villeneuve.
Speaking with French cinema magazine Allocine – as relayed by The Playlist – the Arrival filmmaker stressed that he has no interest in answering any questions left lingering from the original 1982 classic. While admirable, the fact that Ridley Scott confirmed Deckard to be a replicant in the Blade Runner Director’s Cut – not to mention the scores of story clues that fans have garnered in the intervening years – has lead many to assume that the real identity of Harrison Ford’s enigmatic character is, by now, a forgone conclusion.

No. You can stop reading now if you want. For those of you still with me, there's an interview with Blade Runner 2049's director Denis Villeneuve for French Magazine Allocine (via Playlist). When asked about the fact that having an older Harrison Ford cast in the new film seems to prove that Deckard is in fact human, Villeneuve responded: Not necessarily. The... Read More »

Guess he couldn't feel it in The Force.
Mark Hamill told Entertainment Tonight in a recent interview that he had no clue his Star Wars co-stars Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher were having an affair while the trio was shooting A New Hope in England back in 1976.
Fisher broke the news of the real-life Han and Leia romance in her new book, The Princess Diarist, in which she said the pair had multiple "sleepovers" despite the fact that Ford was married at the time.
The rendezvous between the two stayed secret for almost 40 years, and »

Now that the long-gestating Blade Runner sequel has a title (Blade Runner 2049), a release date (October 6, 2017), and at least one way things could go wrong (Jared Leto, who else?), now the time has come for us to channel our free-floating anxiety into more esoteric concerns. For example, there’s the mystery of whether Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard is a replicant, a question that director Ridley Scott has always answered in the affirmative. Ford disagrees, though, as Ford is prone to do. As he said at a 2013 AFI event honoring the film, “Well, I never got a straight answer. Which is okay, I guess. But I thought it was important that the audience be able to have a human representative on screen, somebody that they could have an emotional understanding of. Ridley didn’t think that was all that important.”
So now—depending on your views ...

The first indication that a movie might suck is when there is no script, yet they're moving forward anyway. It means they really don't have a story to tell and they'll be pulling it out of the ether. Indiana Jones 5 is currently sitting without a treasure for Henry Jones Jr. to find, which, looking at it the wrong way, could spell trouble. Especially since the script is coming from the writer of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the least liked sequel in the franchise.
That doesn't mean Indiana Jones 5 will be garbage. But there's always the fear that well enough should be left alone. Especially if there is no story to tell. At this current stage in the game, Harrison Ford is confirmed to reprise his role as the famed archeologist. And Steven Spielberg will return to direct his fifth movie in the series. »
Is Rick Deckard, the assassin played by Harrison Ford in Ridley Scott‘s Blade Runner, one of the very androids he sets out to destroy? This is a question at the core of the 1982 science fiction classic. And now that director Denis Villeneuve is making a sequel starring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, many fans are wondering if Blade Runner 2049 […]

Even though Ridley Scott has definitively stated that Deckard is a replicant in “Blade Runner,” it doesn’t take much searching to find countless fan theories arguing the opposite, and even Harrison Ford himself (decades ago) was on the side that his iconic sci-fi character was human. However, no matter which side of the fence you’re on, don’t look to Denis Villeneuve‘s upcoming “Blade Runner 2049” to give you any final answer on the matter.

The 65-year-old actor, who played Fisher’s brother in the iconic sci-fi franchise, says he should have seen it coming. He revealed that he once had a short-lived romance with a costar himself – Anne Wyndham, an actress who played his sister while they were on General Hospital in the early ’70s.

Carrie Fisher recently revealed that she and Harrison Ford carried on a wild affair on the set of the original Star Wars back in the 1970s, but the whole thing apparently flew under Mark Hamill's radar.
The iconic star spoke with Et's Ashley Crossan at the premiere event for launch of the Comic Con HQ network at the Paley Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday where he said he "was blissfully unaware" that his co-stars were having a fling.
"I was so self-involved at that point, they could've been doing it in front of me and I wouldn't have noticed," Hamill, 65, joked. "I was single and had my own agenda."
While he says that on-set romances are "commonplace," Hamill explained how "tricky" they can end up being for everyone involved.

Goleta, Calif. — Kirk Douglas, “Rules Don't Apply” star Lily Collins and Don Cheadle turned out to salute Warren Beatty at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Kirk Douglas Award celebration of the Hollywood legend Thursday night.
The honor, annually presented at a fundraising dinner for the festival, has previously gone to stars like Jane Fonda, Jessica Lange, Forest Whitaker, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Harrison Ford, Quentin Tarantino, Ed Harris and John Travolta.
“I learned more and more each day that Warren pushes you beyond what you knew you were capable of,” Collins said after reading a series of observations she jotted in her diary while shooting Beatty’s latest film. “He challenges and inspires you beyond your wildest dreams.”

Fisher made headlines weeks ago when she revealed she and Ford hooked up — even though Ford was married — while they were working together for the first time.
But it was much more than a physical connection, at least for the then 19-year-old Fisher, as she wrote in her newly released memoir, The Princess Diarist.
The 60-year-old actress shared pages of the journal she kept during that period and discussed — but was never explicit about — the »

A release date is set for the next installment in the continuing Indiana Jones franchise, with a fifth movie set to hit theaters on July 19, 2019. We know Harrison Ford will return along with Steven Spielberg, and that David Koepp is writing the screenplay. But just how far along are they in deciding Indy's next (and last?) adventure. "That's still in the thinking stages," producer Frank Marshall recently told Fandango during a conversation tied to the DVD/Blu-ray release of Jason Bourne on December 6. At the conclusion of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Indy finally married his longtime love Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen), and when we brought up the next Indiana Jones movie to Marshall, we asked whether there was room for Marion to...
