How Lena Dunham is Launching an Empire for Comedic Women

21 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Lena Dunham needs to change her outfit. On a recent Saturday afternoon, the star and executive producer of “Girls” slips out of a hip pantsuit from her Variety cover shoot, and dons a comfortable jacket. The denim coat is as colorful as Dunham herself, the back festooned with ’90s pop-culture icons (a Furby) and other whimsical objects, like a pair of women’s underwear with an anarchist punk saying, “No Masters,” in pink lettering. “I think it’s my best fashion garment,” she says, confiding that she purchased it from one of her Instagram followers. “You may notice it’s covered in aggressive female symbols. My boyfriend tried to steal it, and I was like, ‘Back off!’ ”

Dunham, 28, isn’t just the face of “Girls,” she’s also an out-and-proud feminist — a trait passed down from her mother, photographer Laurie Simmons — and a practitioner of “Lean In,” the Sheryl Sandberg »

James Corden gets obscene with Michael Douglas in Basic Instinct spoof

17 April 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We're warning you now - if you choose to watch James Corden and Michael Douglas's Basic Instinct spoof… you will Never be able to unsee it.

Fresh off a Pretty in Pink parody with Jon Cryer, Corden teamed up with Beyond the Reach's Douglas to spoof the most controversial movie of 1992.

Douglas reprises his role as Detective Nick Curran from Basic Instinct, with Corden stepping in for Sharon Stone as the seductive Catherine Tramell.

The duo re-enact Basic Instinct's infamous interrogation scene - but certainly share a different kind of sexual tension than Douglas had with Stone.

Corden's most sensitive of areas is mercifully obscured for television viewers at the moment of seduction, unlike Stone's in the original Basic Instinct.

Watch if you dare - don't say you weren't warned!

The Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights on CBS. »

James Corden & Michael Douglas Remake Iconic 'Basic Instinct' Scene

17 April 2015 8:08 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Fresh new late night host James Corden has only been at the reigns of "The Late Late Show" for a few weeks, but his schtick has already become clear. After reenacting the entire filmography of Tom Hanks in under eight minutes and also doing some Pretty in Pink lip syncing with Jon Cryer reprising his iconic role as Duckie, this time Corden had Michael Douglas on as a guest, which prompted the late night host to dress up in drag and perform the iconic interrogation scene from Basic Instinct. For all those squinting for nudity when Sharon Stone uncrossed her legs in the film, you'll want the exact opposite this time.

Michael Douglas & James Corden Recreate That Interrogation Scene From "Basic Instinct"

17 April 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's that famous "Basic Instinct" scene ... with a twist. Michael Douglas threw it back to his 1992 erotic thriller with a little help from James Corden on Thursday's "The Late Late Show."  Clad in a blonde wig, a cream skirt and heels, the host did his best Sharon Stone impression accompanied by Reggie Watts, as the three attempted to re-enact the iconic interrogation scene.   In the skit, Corden crosses and uncrosses his legs just like to Stone's Catherine Tramell character in the flick. And while the now-57-year-old actress exposed everything, James was pixelated, thankfully saving our eyes!    However, the "Wall Street" actor didn't seem quite as intrigued with Corden. In fact, the star could barely hide his disgust, getting physically sick at the host's cringe-worthy performance! Watch the whole hilarious skit above!  This isn't the first time the late night host has recreated a memorable movie moment. On Tuesday, Corden »

Jon Cryer Reenacts 'Pretty in Pink' Lip Syncing with James Corden

16 April 2015 7:56 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While lip syncing is all the rage, with much thanks to Jimmy Fallon's antics on "The Tonight Show," not to mention the new Spike TV series "Lip Sync Battle" which just churns out viral clips of celebrities each week, this isn't anything new. In fact, one of the more iconic lip syncing scenes in entertainment history comes from all the way back in 1986 from the John Hughes teenage romance classic Pretty in Pink. In that film. Jon Cryer plays the hopeless romantic best friend of Andie (Molly Ringwald), and in one entertaining scene, he enters the record store she works in and lip sync's Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness." And now Cryer has returned to reenact that scene nearly 30 years later on "The Late Late Show." Watch below! Here's Jon Cryer reenacting Pretty in Pink with James Corden on "The Late Late Show" this week: It's pretty »

Watch Jon Cryer recreate his ‘Pretty in Pink’ dance with James Corden

15 April 2015 6:20 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While Jon Cryer is best known among television fans for his role on the long-running sitcom Two and a Half Men, he also has a number of notable film roles under his belt, having worked with people such as Robert Altman, Christopher Reeve, and Eddie Murphy over the course of his career. One of his more memorable performances comes in the 1986 feature Pretty in Pink. The film, which was written by John Hughes, sees Cryer play Duckie Dale, with the character getting numerous standout moments, one of which involves a solo dance session set to Otis Redding’s Try a Little Tenderness.

Now, with new The Late Late Show host James Corden as his dance partner, Cryer has recreated the dance, 28 years after the original film’s release. The result can be seen below, alongside the original scene.

15 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Now this is a fab flashback!  Jon Cryer stopped by "The Late Late Show" on Tuesday, where he and host James Corden threw together one of the best "Pretty in Pink" parodies we have ever seen.  Check out the clip above to see the stars lip-sync Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness" dressed in full Duckie costume.

Jon Cryer Re-Created Duckie's Famous Pretty in Pink Dance Sequence

15 April 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

In 1986, the world was introduced to a character named Duckie. Created by John Hughes and played by Jon Cryer in the teen dramedy Pretty in Pink, Duckie has a lot of great scenes, but there's one particularly timeless one. He enters into a record store where his friend Andie (Molly Ringwald) works and performs a brilliant dance to Otis Redding's 1966 song "Try a Little Tenderness." Six months after he dressed up like Duckie for Two and a Half Men's Halloween episode, Cryer has done it again, and this time, he tried a little tenderness. Cryer and James Corden both donned Duckie's duds for a skit on The Late Late Show, proving that double the Duckie means double the fun. Take a look at their version of the scene, plus the original, below! »

Watch Jon Cryer Revive Duckie's 'Pretty in Pink' Dance on 'Late Late Show'

15 April 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Donning his vintage white kicks and high-hair wig, Jon Cryer got back into character as "Duckie" from John Hughes' 1986 rom-com classic, Pretty in Pink, during Tuesday's episode of The Late Late Show. The actor and host James Corden recreated Duckie's signature record store dance scene, miming the words to Otis Redding's blazing soul classic "Try a Little Tenderness" as they stomp around the stage.

The duo showcased all the signature Duckie moves – the hand slam, the wall slide, the head swivel, the air-hump, the Egyptian walk – while channeling »

Jon Cryer Reprises Duckie's Iconic Pretty in Pink Dance With James Corden—Watch Now!

15 April 2015 5:50 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's 1986 again! Jon Cryer appeared on The Late Late Show and blessed viewers with a reprisal of his iconic dance from Pretty in Pink. That's right...Duckie is back! We just had to wait for Two and a Half Men to come to an end. With host James Corden by his side, somehow this little reboot might be better than the original. Clad in matching wigs, white winklepickers and outfits, Corden and Cryer lip-synced Otis Redding's "Try and Little Tenderness" on the set that was decorated to match the record store from the movie. Even though it has been 29 years since the film, which also starred Molly Ringwald and Annie Potts, was released, Cryer clearly had no problem remembering his signature dance »

Best of Late Night TV: Jon Cryer Recreates Duckie's 'Pretty in Pink' Dance, a Toast to 'Justified' (Video)

15 April 2015 12:00 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.

Jon Cryer, Grace Helbig, and Freida Pinto were on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" Tuesday night. Jon, aka Duckie, did a "Pretty in Pink" routine with James. They recreated his record store dance to Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness," and even took it into the audience. Jimmy Fallon must be biting his fingernails over these fun bits -- especially since "The Tonight Show" is on repeats this week and James is having a blast. Here's the new "Pretty in Pink" dance and the original from the movie: In other "Late Late Show" news, the group talked about Uber. Freida has lived in L.A. for three years now, »

You never know what you're going to hear on "Watch What Happens Live!"

Scott Eastwood visited Andy Cohen on the often-candid Bravo show on Thursday night, alongside former "Two and a Half Men" star Jon Cryer, where Scott dropped a bombshell that had Andy reaching for a shotski!

After a viewer called in to ask Jon about having previously dated Ashton's ex-wife, Demi Moore, in the '80s, Scott interjected his own take into the conversation.

Ashton Kutcher Wants His ‘Two and a Half Men’ Co-Star Jon Cryer to Move In with Him and Mila Kunis

10 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

On Big Morning Buzz Live, Jon Cryer told Nick Lachey he thought he was getting punk’d when Ashton Kutcher wanted to go halfsies on an expensive Malibu beach house with him. Here’s one thing we want to know: As a roommate, would Cryer be bothered by the sexcapades we know Ashton and Mila are having?

Regardless, the situation seemed all too familiar for the Two and a Half Men star. “Dude, do you watch the show that we’re on? Where we’re living in a house together in Malibu?” he asked Kutcher. “It didn’t even cross his mind that it would be exactly the show that we do every week.” Maybe Ashton just likes to keep his friends close?

Cryer, whose memoir So That Happened is out this week, also opened up about his reconciliation with former Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen. Watch the interview below. »

It’s appropriate that Jon Cryer’s memoir is titled “So That Happened,” because “Longest Ride” star Scott Eastwood dropped a bomb while appearing alongside the “Two and a Half Men” star on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live.” After Cryer answered a question about dating Demi Moore and working with Ashton Kutcher, Eastwood chimed in with a juicier revelation: “If it makes you feel any better,  slept with one of my ex-girlfriends.” When host Andy Cohen asked Eastwood if the incident happened while the two were dating, Eastwood said, “Yeah.” Also Read: ‘The Longest Ride’ Review: Scott Eastwood’s »

Scott Eastwood Claims Ashton Kutcher Slept With His Girlfriend, and That's Why His Marriage to Demi Moore Ended

10 April 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Andy Cohen dug up some dirt on Watch What Happens Live. During Thursday's episode, a viewer phoned in to ask Jon Cryer if it was awkward working with Ashton Kutcher on CBS' Two and a Half Men, given that Cryer dated his co-star's wife, Demi Moore, in the '80s. The sitcom star, who detailed his brief romance in his memoir, So That Happened, amiably answered the question. Before moving on to the next topic, however, actor Scott Eastwood dropped a real bombshell. "If it makes you feel any better, he did sleep with one of my ex-girlfriends," Eastwood told Cryer. "Great!" Cryer joked. "But she was my current girlfriend at the time, so yeah," the Longest Ride star »

Scott Eastwood Just Dropped a Major Bombshell About Ashton Kutcher's Marriage

9 April 2015 8:54 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Scott Eastwood made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live alongside Jon Cryer on Thursday night, and because of one question, the interview took quite an interesting turn. A caller initially asked Jon Cryer if it was awkward working with Ashton Kutcher after they both dated Demi Moore (Jon briefly dated Demi in the '80s after they worked on a movie together). Jon began answering the question, but Scott interjected with a shocking bombshell. According to Scott, Ashton slept with his girlfriend while he was married to Demi. Scott then revealed that the girl in question was the central focus of that story that came out of San Diego in 2011, when Ashton reportedly cheated on Demi with two girls. This is one can of worms that's going to be tough to close. »

Jon Cryer Wouldn’t Read His Own Memoir if It Didn’t Include Charlie Sheen (Video)

8 April 2015 6:50 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jon Cryer didn’t think twice about including Charlie Sheen‘s “Two and a Half Men” antics in his new memoir, “So That Happened.” “Would I want to read a book about me that didn’t have that in it? No,” Cryer told Seth Meyers during a “Late Night” appearance on Tuesday. “It was fascinating to be in the middle of that hurricane,” he added in reference to Sheen’s 2011 meltdown, which led to showrunner Chuck Lorre firing the actor.

Best of Late Night TV: Louis C.K. Refused to Hire Jimmy Fallon in '90s, Rick Gervais' Awkward Man-Wich (Video)

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.

Louis C.K. was on "The Tonight Show" and he and Jimmy Fallon discussed some personal history. Apparently Jimmy forgot, but he auditioned for Louis when Louis was the head writer for "The Dana Carvey Show" in the '90s. They were auditioning people to be in the cast and Jimmy came in - this adorable little boy (as Louis recalled). Jimmy played his guitar and had little troll dolls, then turned and wiggled his tight little a**. Jimmy argued that he definitely didn't turn and wiggle his butt several times. When the names came up for casting, all the women in the staff argued for Jimmy but Louis and »
