Conan's 'Scraps' Episode Had Unbelievably Funny Outtakes

21 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Conan O'Brien had a "scraps" episode last night in which he showed funny outtakes and rehearsal footage. And God, I cried laughing. I cried! Cried. Cry-y-y. Check out these clips from the tremendous show. We've got the intro to start, followed by an uproarious rehearsal for a Photoshop-themed sketch and a rad impromptu cover of Radiohead's "Creep." The last two videos are audio-only and they're still hilarious. »

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 2 - HitFix Picks

21 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] Picking episodes for Day 1 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon was relatively easy. Yes, "The Simpsons" was quite fine right off the bat and it only improved as the show moved into its second season, but the fans here at HitFix were able to cobble together a clear list of favorites without any hugely disappointing exclusions. Day 2 was far more difficult. We have five participants picking episodes here and we each snagged two favorites for the day, which stretches from "Bart's Dog Gets an F" through to "Last Exit to Springfield," or from Episode 29 through Episode 76.  I think we represented many of the best episodes from this fertile early period, but if I had been about to select four or five, I could have easily done it.  My greatest regret is that we didn't have room for "Selma's Choice," which has possibly my favorite opening of the entire series -- »

The Greatest Simpsons Celebrity Cameos of the Past 25 Years

21 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

After 25 years of The Simpsons, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who can’t recount at least one joke from the long-running animated series. From Homer’s “Doh” to Bart’s “eat my shorts,” it’s a show stuffed with more iconic moments than anything else. Some of the best, of course, are courtesy of celebrity cameos.

Whether it’s classic stars like Leonard Nimoy or newer sensations like LeBron James, The Simpsons only invites the best talent to join its hallowed ranks. It’s seen Tom Jones performing at gun point, Luke Perry as a sideshow act, Star Wars‘ own Mark Hamill being rescued by Homer himself, and Xena: Warrior Princess aka Lucy Lawless flying through the air. There’s serious actors being silly, talk show hosts like Conan O’Brien getting meta, and legendary musicians — yes, ‘N Sync counts — passing through the tiny town of Springfield. »

Best of Late Night TV: Lindsay Lohan Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge, Jared Leto Gets Shaved (Video)

21 August 2014 12:27 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.

Lindsay Lohan was the latest celebrity to participate in the viral Als Ice Bucket Challenge campaign, after a "Tonight Show" viewer wrote in to complain that he challenged the actress, but she had yet to respond. That didn't sit well with host Jimmy Fallon, who flew Lohan in from London to complete the stunt. After she did the deed, the sopping wet starlet challenged another set of people, including Prince Harry and fellow "Tonight Show" guest Jared Leto.

Speaking of Leto, he didn't walk away from "Tonight" completely unscathed either, as mid-interview, Fallon decided to shave his bushy, messiah-reminiscent beard. "I have been asked to do some resurrections lately, »

19 August 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Late night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien have already paid tribute to the late comedian Robin Williams, a man who was an inspiration to them both, making his mark as the best late night talk show guest ever. Now the more seasoned David Letterman has stepped up, taking a week to gather his thoughts, with an extended tribute from "The Late Show" on CBS the program that he will be leaving behind at the end of the year. It's a heartfelt tribute from a man who is a comedy legend in his own right, and spent some wild and wacky time with Williams at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City over the years. Watch! Here's David Letterman paying tribute to Robin Williams from "The Late Show" on CBS: It's crazy to think about a time decades ago when Letterman and Williams were just up-and-coming comedians, both struggling to make it. »

Here's How Robin Williams Changed TV

15 August 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Much has been said since Robin Williams' death on Monday of his contribution to movies. Certainly, his performances in such films as "Aladdin," "Mrs. Doubtfire," and "Good Will Hunting" are likely to endear him to new fans among moviegoers for generations to come. But it's easy to forget that he also made indelible contributions to the world of TV throughout his four-decade career. Older viewers remember his starmaking turn as a lovable alien on "Mork and Mindy," but that was only one instance of many where he changed the medium in ways large and small that will continue to be felt for a long time to come. Here are some of those ways.

"The Richard Pryor Show." Imagine an era when you could have seen Richard Pryor and Robin Williams doing sketch comedy together every week in primetime. That era really happened; it lasted just four weeks in 1977. That's »

Movie News - Bad Boys 3 a Go, Says Martin Lawrence, Is Will Smith Returning?

14 August 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Movie News - Bad Boys 3 is a go, according to actor Martin Lawrence, but one of the big questions of the possible upcoming film, is Will Smith returning? The comedian, who starred in the first two films in the franchise alongside Will Smith, revealed the news during an interview with Us talk-show host Conan O'Brien. Asked whether 'Bad Boys 3' will happen, the 49-year-old said: ''I believe so. Yes.'' He added: ''I just talked to [producer] Jerry Bruckheimer and he said it's real, they're working on the script, they're getting close and it all looks good.'' One of the biggest obstacles to making the film will be getting co-star Will Smith on board - an issue Bruckheimer discussed in April. He said: ''It's so funny because we'll get Sony real excited to make the movie, and then Will is off doing two movies. And then, Will »

Arcade Fire take a look in the mirror in lo-fi 'You Already Know' video

14 August 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Arcade Fire are really into the whole "reflection" thing, as seen in the latest video for the bouncy, new wave-y song "You Already Know." In it, the sprawling Canadian ensemble occupies some sort of coastal mansion, where they play the song while lounging around an opulent, but tasteful, bedroom. In a move that would make Conan O'Brien (or maybe Harry Potter) proud, the song's vocals are handled by the painted portraits decorating the walls, allowing actual singer Win Butler to record the proceedings with his phone and a small digital camera.  Compared to their other grandiose videos, it's a defiantly lo-fi excursion, blown out and shaky like a real home video, and allows Butler and the band to continue to explore the mirror motifs found on their most recent album "Reflektor," from which "You Already Know" is taken.

Martin Lawrence Says Bad Boys 3 Is "Getting Close"

14 August 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've been hearing talk of a Bad Boys 3 movie since 2009. The last bit of information that we heard was in 2013 when Sony Pictures was looking to hire Safe House writer David Guggenheim to take a crack at the script. 

Martin Lawrence was a guest on Conan last night to promote his new FX series Partners, which co-stars Kelsey Grammer. While there, Conan O'Brien asked him about a third Bad Boys, and if it was actually a possibility, to which Lawrence replied: 

"I believe so, yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer... yesterday and he said its real. They’re working on the script, they’re getting close and it all looks good." 

The real question remains though… is Will Smith or Michael Bay up for returning? Because without those two elements it's not really going to be a Bad Boys movie. I enjoyed watching the first two films, and »

Martin Lawrence Says 'Bad Boys 3' is Finally Very Close to Happening

14 August 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Development on Bad Boys 3 at Sony Pictures has been dragging along since as far back as 2009. The studio hired The Town scribe Peter Craig five years ago to write the script, but as recently as this past winter, they decided to commission a new script from Safe House writer David Guggenheim. But since then, we haven't heard anything about the project coming to fruition, which is just par for the course. However, Martin Lawrence appeared on "Conan" last night where he was asked about the sequel by Conan O'Brien, and thankfully the star had some good news, giving us hope that he will reteam with Will Smith again. Here's the video of Martin Lawrence on "Conan" last night from Team Coco: If you don't feel like watching, when asked about the potential for Bad Boys 3 finally coming together, Lawrence simply said, "I believe so, yes.

'Bad Boys 3' Still Very Much Alive, Says Martin Lawrence. Script Coming Together. What Can We Expect?

14 August 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

It looks like a "Bad Boys 3" movie is indeed closer to becoming a reality with one of the stars of the film, Martin Lawrence, revealing to Conan O'Brien on his show last night, that he spoke to producer Jerry Bruckheimer the night before, and it's definitely in the works.  It previously wasn't clear whether Lawrence was interested in returning (Will Smith and Bruckheimer have previously shared interest, but Lawrence was noticeably quiet about it), but given his conversation with Conan last night, it looks like he will be back for a third film. Screenwriter David Guggenheim ("Safe House") is penning the script for the threequel. Although no »

14 August 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Martin Lawrence has confirmed that a new Bad Boys sequel is still in development.

The actor starred alongside Will Smith in the 1995 movie and its 2003 follow-up Bad Boys II and a second sequel has long been in development, soon after Smith called for a return back in 2008.

Conan O'Brien asked Lawrence on his chat show about the latest progress on the project.

"Is this true now... people love those Bad Boys movies, Bad Boys 1 and 2, that there's gonna be a Bad Boys 3, is that possible?" asked O'Brien.

Lawrence replied: "I believe so, yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer.

"I just talked to Jerry yesterday and he said it's real. They're working on the script, they're getting closer and it all looks good."

The pair then joked about O'Brien playing a "crooked cop on crack" in the sequel.

Lawrence said in April 2010 that the project was "real realistic" and »

Marcus Burnett and Mike Lowrey might be back on the big screen! Martin Lawrence confirmed that a third Bad Boys movie is in development during an appearance on TBS' Conan Wednesday.

Lawrence, who played Marcus in 1995's Bad Boys and 2003's Bad Boys II, did not reveal whether Will Smith will reprise his role.

Best of Late Night TV: Taylor Swift Says 'Ew!', Aubrey Plaza Hates Laughing (Video)

14 August 2014 12:30 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.

Taylor Swift, who co-stars in "The Giver," stopped by "The Tonight Show" for a guest spot on recurring sketch "Ew!," portraying Natalie, a painfully shy 13-year-old apricot enthusiast with a Band-Aid collection and a passion for building popsicle stick castles. Host Jimmy Fallon's character, Sara, declares all of this "Ew," adding, "I so can't relate." When it seems the two will never bond, Sara starts a lightning round of items to declare "Ew" or not, including the concept of "getting back together." "Never," Natalie deapans, a perhaps not-so-coincidentally similar refrain to one of Swift's songs. "Ever, ever, ever, ever."

Swift later sat down to chat with Fallon about »
