Sharknado 2 Has Arrived! 9 Reasons to Watch, 6 Questions You Should Ask

29 July 2014 6:19 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Sharknado 2: The Second One storms Syfy this Wednesday at 9/8c, having been greenlit near-immediately in the wake of last summer’s social media-feeding frenzy.

Video Syfy’s 12 Monkeys Trailer

Once again starring Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills, 90210) and Tara Reid (American Pie) — as Fin, a surfer turned action-hero (…turned 747 pilot?), and his lady love April — the splashy sequel moves the action to New York City, where the toothy twister phenomenon amazingly has tailed the triumphant twosome.

Also on hand to withstand this latest bout of wild weather are Kari Wuhrer and Mark McGrath (playing Fin’s sister and brother-in-law), Vivica A. Fox, »

Taye Diggs Has Hopes To Play 'Luke Cage' In The Marvel Universe

25 July 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

During last night’s Conan O'Brien Show, O' Brien brought on Taye Diggs (The Best Man and spouse of Idina Menzel), and the actor revealed which role  he hopes to play in the future. To start off, Conan asked Diggs if he would like to play a superhero. To no surprise, Diggs replied, "I would love to. That’s one of the things that I haven't gotten to do yet. Just to be able to do that, you know, when they're flying, and then they land, you know what I'm saying." O' Brien then asked if there was any particular superhero he wanted to play. Taye answered "Luke Cage. You ever heard of that? I've always liked that. Just you know, growing up a poor black boy, you gravitate to the black superheroes. And that's why I really loved Django Unchained. Growing up, you never got to see the black »

​What Does David Letterman's Retirement Mean for the Future of Late Night TV?

25 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

As the Great Late-Night Realignment of 2014-15 continues, one thing is clear: The East Coast/West Coast beef lives on, if not in hip-hop, then on late-night television.

This week, CBS announced that, when Stephen Colbert takes over David Letterman's "Late Show" next year, he'll keep the show at Broadway's historic Ed Sullivan Theater. Actually, it wasn't just CBS who made the announcement; it was CBS, several New York state legislators, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. That's how big a deal it is that Colbert is not moving the "Late Show" to Los Angeles.

Not that there was much chance the show would move, though Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti made a game try at persuading CBS to move the show to what he called "the entertainment capital of the world" in a letter he wrote to the network in April, shortly after CBS announced Letterman's retirement... and »

Conan O'Brien Cameos in Sharktopus Sequel

24 July 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Sharknado 2 seems to be getting all the attention these days when it comes to campy Syfy originals, but it isn't the only shclock on the block.  Premiering just a few days after Sharknado we will be treated to another Roger Corman mashup movie.  

Shartopus vs. Pteracuda (inspired by true events according to the poster) tells the story of a captive Sharktopus which must be unleashed to fight yet another science experiment gone wrong: the half-Pterodactyl, half-Barracuda. 

The movie also boasts a comeo by Conan O'Brien and he has just made a clip from his performance available.

Fair warning, this is what one would call a Huge Spoiler. if that concerns you, you may want to skip the clip.

Best of Late Night TV: Audra McDonald Sings Yahoo! Answers, Robin Wright Dances, Conan's 'Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda' Cameo

24 July 2014 1:40 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.

An audience member asking to hear a professional singer perform queries from Yahoo! Answers inspired this bit on "The Tonight Show," where Tony winner Audra McDonald was joined by actor Josh Charles and host Jimmy Fallon to sing real questions and answers from the site. Some of the questions were fairly straightforward -- "How can I be the life of the party?" -- while others were...less than intelligent. (The person worrying about how to dislodge a swallowed ice cube may need to seek professional help.) Our fingers are crossed that this concept is added to Fallon's regular rotation of quirky recurring gags.

Best of Late Night TV: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Cast Takes Over Kimmel, Kate Hudson Plays Box of Lies (Video)

22 July 2014 1:19 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.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" was back with a bang following a two-week hiatus, hosting the cast of "Guardians of the Galaxy." Chris Pratt, who plays Guardians leader Peter Quill, dominated the conversation, discussing his weight loss regimen ("vomiting, Zumba, and Shake Weight") and how much fun it was to shoot the film. The actor noted that he was "truly playing every day. I had a laser gun and a spaceship." But that playing came at a price, as Pratt admitted that he got so swept away shooting his fake gun that he couldn't help but making shooting noises with his mouth -- to the ire of the film crew.

Conan Billboard Seeks Emmy for ‘Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda’

21 July 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Conan O'Brien is probably an Emmy lock for his upcoming role in SyFy's “Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda,” but the “Conan” host is taking no chances. O'Brien has taken out two billboards — one in Times Square and one in Los Angeles’ “historic brakes and alignment district” (near the corner of Washington and La Cienega) — to seek Emmy voters’ consideration for his role. He announced the billboards on his show last week. Also read: FX Removing Some ‘Strain’ Billboards That Revolted People A few clarifications: “Sharktopus Vs.

Conan O'Brien and Dave Franco Had the Best Tinder Date

18 July 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Conan O'Brien wanted the full Tinder experience, so what did he do? He recruited the help of the winsome Funny Or Die favorite Dave Franco for help. He absolutely got the help he needed. This is an elementary Conan O'Brien observation, but it's so nice to see a talk show host who can be seriously improvisational during a bit. Almost all of the jokes Conan uses here are made up on the spot; long-form extemporaneous humor is pretty rare among talk show hosts these days. I'm still laughing about half the material in this 12-minute video including the very existence of Conan's typewriter. »

When Conan O'Brien tries out Tinder, hilarious antics are bound to ensue! This week, the Conan host showcased his recent adventures trying out the hookup app. "For months now I've been listening to all the young people in my office talk about Tinder, a social networking site where you can find people in your area you've never met," O'Brien said in a video clip. "They're in your vicinity and they're ready to meet and maybe hook up. Naturally, because I'm a creep, I'm intrigued to find out about this."

This might be the best thing you see all day! Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien filmed one hilarious segment for "Conan" on Thursday, where the twosome decided to make some faux-Tinder profiles ... and meet up with their matches in person.

F--k Dave Franco!," we're sure the "Neighbors" star had no problem finding some matches. Conan named "Chai lattes" and "showering" among some of his hobbies and lied about his age.

Not only did the actor and the late night host create truly ridiculous profiles, they rented a creepy van, which O'Brien dubbed "Brown Lightening,"  to »

Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien took Tinder to a hilarious new level on Conan on Thursday night. The two decided to create fake profiles and swipe together, even staging a hilarious photo shoot for their profiles first. "I am 42 years old, and people tell me I look like Conan O'Brien," Conan - aka Chip Whitley - wrote in his. "I like Chai lattes and showering." Dave, aka Djengus Roundstone, wrote, "I enjoy wearing Crocs for their style over their comfort, and I hear I look like a poor man's Dave Franco. F*ck Dave Franco!" After saying "yes" and "no" to potential dates, they even swapped phones . . . and both matched with 74-year-old Gloria. Though she turns Conan down gently, she loves Dave. Check out the video above to see their shenanigans, including when they hop in their van called "Brown Lightning" and meet their Tinder matches face to face. »

Best of Late Night TV: Whoopi Goldberg's Lip Flip and Emma Stone's Random Colin Firth Feud (Video)

17 July 2014 1:17 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Didn't stay up to watch Wednesday's late night talk shows? Moviefone's got you covered. Here's some of what you might have missed:

Jimmy Fallon busted out his funny-yet-creepy Lip Flip routine again with "Tonight Show" guest and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" star Whoopi Goldberg, where the pair swapped mouths and interviewed each other posing as the other (including some hilarious attempts at various accents for both parties). The clip culminated in a rendition of the Aretha Franklin and George Michael duet "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)," complete with a semi-horrifying split screen shot of the two digitally altered comedians.

"Frozen" star Josh Gad also stopped by "The Tonight Show" to promote his new movie, the Zach Braff-directed "Wish I Was Here," but the animated Disney hit dominated the conversation. Gad told Fallon that his 3-year-old daughter doesn't care about his character, talking snowman Olaf, but thinks he »

Sofía Vergara is one lucky lady! During an appearance on Conan O'Brien's show the other night, Joe Manganiello's interview quickly became focused on—what else?—his role as male stripper Big Dick Richie in the movie Magic Mike. "Have you been working on your male stripper name?" Manganiello asked O'Brien. "No, it never occurred to me before," the talk show host admitted. "I don't know what I would be. I have no idea. You help me. What would I be? You look at me and what do you see?" "I think Big Red could work," Manganiello said. "Like a Viking with a helmet and tear-away armor. Like, 'I'm here to pillage your »

Best of Late Night TV: Cameron Diaz's Epic Kayak Race, Joe Manganiello's Stripper Lessons, and Anna Paquin's Bleeped Boob Talk (Video)

15 July 2014 11:50 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Did you miss Tuesday night's late night talk shows? Moviefone's got you covered. Here are some highlights:

Jimmy Fallon had an epic kayak race with Cameron Diaz on "The Tonight Show," and it started with both accusing the other of cheating. The race course was pretty amazing - winding backstage through the studio, past the dancing Hashtag Panda, two Elton John impersonators, and fellow guest Josh Gad. Only one of them actually made it across the finish line. Just guess who won.

When not helping out during the kayak race, Josh Gad was a guest on Jimmy's show. Behind the scenes, he shared his worst audition ever - which was for Juilliard, when he tried to improvise Shakespeare. Not a good idea.

Conan O'Brien sat down with "True Blood" and "Magic Mike" alum Joe Manganiello, who gave lessons in How To Be A Good Male Stripper. He emphasized the »

Jason Biggs: 'I Have a Right' to My Wife's Breast Milk (Video)

Jason Biggs continued his campaign of transparency - some would call it oversharing - Monday night on Conan, revealing to Conan O'Brien that he once tasted his wife's breast milk. The Orange Is the New Black star declined, however, to offer tasting notes. "I just wanted to see what the fuss is about. My kid loves it," Biggs said. "I have a right to it as well, don't I?" he added. Biggs and his wife, author Jenny Mollen, have no problem sharing their personal life - to put it mildly.

Study Suggests Current Tonight Show Is Less a Talk Show and More a Variety Show

10 July 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

You know how when Jimmy Fallon started on Late Night, people were like, "He's charming, but not much of an interviewer?" Well, it appears Fallon has solved the problem on his Tonight Show — he just stopped interviewing people. A study conducted by Stephen Winzenburg of Grand View University revealed that Fallon spends only 37 percent of his show interviewing his guests, compared to the 51 percent Jay Leno and Johnny Carson spent. That is also far less than his contemporaries, Craig Ferguson (43 percent), Jimmy Kimmel (48 percent), Seth Meyers (51 percent), David Letterman (51 percent), and Conan O'Brien (53 percent). Winzenburg's argues that "The Tonight Show has become successful by looking more like a comedy variety series than a traditional talk show." For anyone who's seen Fallon's Tonight Show or Late Night, this makes sense, as he is more likely to play a game with his guests than to have »
