Watch Hugh Jackman, Susan Sarandon, And Nick Offerman Play Password With Jimmy Fallon

19 May 2015 4:53 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Sometimes The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is hilarious, and sometimes it’s just weirdly awesome. While not especially funny, getting Hugh Jackman, Susan Sarandon, and Nick Offerman to sit down for a quick game of Password is beyond awesome.

There’s little to explain, except that what really pushes this over the edge is Jimmy’s own inability to find that perfect clue. The frustration shoots out of him like he’s sitting on a geyser.

The real question here is, why doesn’t someone bring this show back? Update it a bit, maybe, but who wouldn’t love to see some stars under pressure on a regular basis?

Check it out above, and keep tuning in.

Last Night on Late Night, 5/19/15: Hanks talks to Letterman and Hugh Jackman teaches Fallon how to eat Vegemite

19 May 2015 3:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Real comedy still happens on late night, we can prove it. If you like Conan comedy gold, Fallon friendliness, cutesy Corden, list-making Letterman, kneedy Kimmel, and all the rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this column too.

Last night on late night, Tom Hanks and Dave talked dodging drones with Ron Howard, a “sex mathematician” explained hormones to Conan, Hugh Jackman and Nick Offerman were on The Tonight Show, Mariah Carey went on Kimmel, and The Men in Blazers broke down Premier League relegation battle drama.

Late Show with David Letterman

Legendary actor and talk show guest Tom Hanks.

Hanks is adept with the selfie stick. Like, actually.

Hanks talks about being attacked by fake drones and having to act based on directorial yells in Inferno. The Late Show crew does a list of stuff they’ll miss from the show. Dave’s monologue on his retirement, Joe Biden, Marco Rubio, »

Best of Late Night TV: Nick Offerman, Hugh Jackman Play Password; Fallon's Letterman Tribute; Betty White Flash Mob

18 May 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Hugh Jackman and Nick Offerman (looking Sharp without a mustache) were on "The Tonight Show" Monday night, and they played "Password" with Jimmy Fallon and Susan Sarandon (who wore a Rangers jersey). Hugh and Nick made the best team, and not just the best-looking. But they really did look good. In his sit-down interview, Hugh showed Jimmy the Aussie way to eat vegemite. He randomly broke out a toaster and demonstrated in a "public service announcement for Australia." Jimmy Fallon took a moment on "The Tonight Show" to thank David Letterman and wish him well in his retirement. He also showed a picture from his eighth grade yearbook, including »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Stone (Thrillingly) Assassinates Truth While Investigating Kennedy Assassination

14 May 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'JFK' movie with Kevin Costner as Jim Garrison 'JFK' assassination movie: Gripping political drama gives added meaning to 'Rewriting History' If it's an Oliver Stone film, it must be bombastic, sentimental, clunky, and controversial. With the exception of "clunky," JFK is all of the above. It is also riveting, earnest, dishonest, moving, irritating, paranoid, and, more frequently than one might expect, outright brilliant. In sum, Oliver Stone's 1991 political thriller about a determined district attorney's investigation of the assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy is a slick piece of propaganda that mostly works both dramatically and cinematically. If only some of the facts hadn't gotten trampled on the way to film illustriousness. With the exception of John Williams' overemphatic score – Oliver Stone films need anything but overemphasis – JFK's technical and artistic details are put in place to extraordinary effect.

Box-Office Alternatives: The Witches of Eastwick

14 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Mad Max: Fury Road is one of those sequels many were hoping would become a reality, yet few actually believed would see the light of day. The continuation of what is undoubtedly Australia's most popular film franchise at last comes to the big screen in a dark yet sprawling apocalyptic action piece just ripe for summertime audiences.

Without question the biggest plus in Mad Max: Fury Road was in bringing back the series' original director, George Miller. The director made his name helming the previous movies in the franchise before creating one of the most unpredictable filmographies in Hollywood, with features ranging from Lorenzo's Oil (1992) to Happy Feet (2006). However, no choice Miller made in his post-Mad Max days remained as standout as his first Hollywood outing, The Witches of Eastwick (1987).

Based on a novel by John Updike, The Witches of Eastwick centered on three women (Cher, Susan Sarandon and »

James Corden & Susan Sarandon Spoof "Thelma & Louise," Recreate Alternate Endings!

13 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Imagine if "Thelma & Louise" ended like this! Susan Sarandon stopped by the "Late Late Show" on Tuesday, where she and James Corden created a few alternate endings for the 1991 cult classic.  Check out the funny video above to see how the drama could have ended!  While we just see Geena Davis (Thelma) and Sarandon (Louise) drive off a cliff in the original, James and Susan revealed what could have happened if the two outlaws didn't meet their ultimate demise.  Corden takes over for Geena, playing the role of Thelma in the parody while rocking a short blonde curly wig in the hilarious clip.  "What the hell was that? Why did you just drop off the damn cliff!" Corden says to Susan in the video. "I said let's keep going! It was a metaphor, Louise! A metaphor! Like keep going in life. You owe me an apology."

Watch Susan Sarandon Act Out 3 Hysterical Thelma & Louise Alternate Endings

13 May 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Thelma & Louise, played by Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon in the 1991 movie, went out with a bang. Spoiler alert if you haven.t seen the film, but it ends with these two best friends driving over a cliff and plummeting into a canyon rather than getting taken in by the police. It.s one of those classic movie endings, but thanks to Sarandon and James Corden, there are a couple more alternate endings. Sarandon reprises her famous role of Louise, while the Late Late Show host takes over for Davis as Thelma. If you.ve been dying to know what was going through their minds when these characters drove off the cliff and headed straight for a rocky grave, these new sketches answer that for you. Apparently, there.s a range of alternate endings, from a misunderstanding to an Ed.s Muffler & Brakes promo, that didn.t make the cut. »

13 May 2015 12:10 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

David Letterman is ending his show next week, May 20, so he has major guest after major guest lined up every night. Last week, President Obama stopped by, and on Tuesday night, former President Bill Clinton joined Dave on "Late Show." Clinton talked about his possible return to the White House with Hillary as Potus, and how his perspective has changed as Grandpa to little Charlotte, who is 7.5 months old. Adam Sandler was also on "Late Show" and he performed a sweet, funny and beautiful tribute to Dave. (Love the "blow" line re: the Jimmys.) This is what Sandler really does best.

First Hell & Back Image Teases a Trip to the Underworld

12 May 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Exchange has released the first Hell & Back image online. The studio picked up the international rights at Cannes for the film, which is billed as being in the vein of South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut and Team America: World Police. That’s a high bar, but Hell & Back has the distinction of being stop-motion animated, and it also has a strong voice cast that includes Mila Kunis, Danny McBride, T.J. Miller, Bob Odenkirk, Susan Sarandon, Jennifer Coolidge, and Rob Riggle. The plot “follows two best friends who must rescue their friend after he’s accidentally dragged to hell," so you can see the potential for R-rated comedy. Check out the Hell & Back image below. Directed by Tom Gianas (SNL) and Ross Shuman (Robot Chicken), the movie is due out in theaters this fall.
