Last week brought the news that the U.S. Copyright Office had reconsidered a copyright application and was accepting the registration of a joke. The quip in question?

Bill Skarsgård unknowingly spent his whole life perfecting his killer clown smile. The 27-year-old Swedish star of Skarsgård family fame is one of the stars of the new It remake as the iconic horror character, Pennywise the Dancing Clown. While the actor is certainly hunky underneath all that makeup, the demonic smile is all his own. As he demonstrated for Conan O'Brien Tuesday night on his eponymous late-night show, the actor revealed the downturned lip trait actually runs in the family. "It's a funny story because my older brother, Gustaf [Skarsgård]…he had this ability to point his lip in a very strange way," the star said. "For some »
In case you hadn't heard, the actor behind It's Pennywise is actually quite handsome. Until now, we thought Bill Skarsgard was able to transform into the creepy clown largely due to the magic of hair and makeup. As it turns out, we were wrong. Lovely. The 27-year-old actor recently promoted the horror remake on Conan, where Conan O'Brien brought up Pennywise's inimitable smile. Bill explained that he had actually picked up the unsettling mouth trick from his older brother Gustaf Skarsgard and created this whole character around the smile when he was a kid (because that's not creepy at all). Related10 People Who Feel Lied to Because Pennywise From It Is Super Sexy in Real Life What's insane about the interview clip is how instantaneously Bill is able to turn on the smile and snap into character. If you thought Pennywise gave you nightmares, you haven't seen anything yet. Watch »

Say it ain't so! After three decades in show business, Matt LeBlanc is ready to retire. "I would love that," the 50-year-old said on Conan Monday. "I would like to retire earlier than later, because I think I would like to do not a f--king thing. That's what I would like to do. Just nothing. Nothing! Zero." "You say you would do nothing, but you have to do something. So, explain to me what that something would be," Conan O'Brien said. "You can't just lie in bed all day and have ice cream put into your veins intravenously—wait a minute, maybe you could. What do you want to do?" On a "typical day," LeBlanc sad, he would like to "sleep as long as »
[[tmz:video id="0_vthzbs5q"]] Floyd Mayweather says he's putting business before pleasure -- and won't have sex before he fights Conor McGregor. It's an old superstition that's been around the boxing game for years. You remember Mick from the 'Rocky' movies famously said, "Women weaken legs." Floyd seems to agree. Conor McGregor has a different strategy. "That is most certainly a superstition that I do not abide by," Conor told Conan O'Brien back in 2015 ... "I definitely have as much sex as possible. »

After a weekend of violence and racially-motivated hatred in Charlottesville, Virginia, late night talk show hosts returned to TV with a notably somber tone and many spoke out against the white nationalist rally as well as President Donald Trump's tepid reaction to an attack that occurred during a counterprotest.
Jimmy Fallon, who has often refrains from taking strong political stances on The Tonight Show, opened up Monday's episode with an emotional address, getting choked up as he recounted the events that transpired over the weekend.
"Even though the Tonight Show isn't a political show, it's my responsibility to stand up against intolerance and extremism as a human being," Fallon shared. "What happened over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, was just disgusting."
"I was watching the news like everyone else, and you're seeing Nazi flags and torches and white supremacists, and I was sick to my stomach," he continued. "My daughters are in the next room playing »
As President Donald Trump continues to double down on North Korea’s escalating nuclear threats, many Americans are wondering: Just how worried should we be?
Count Chrissy Teigen among the confused.
On Twitter Friday, the 31-year-old model and cookbook author summed up the big question on everyone’s mind: “Honestly should we be getting masks and canned food?” she wrote. “How real is this? I am just cooking and online shopping like I’m not about to die.”
She wasn’t the only one pondering the possibility of nuclear war.

Stephen Colbert will executive produce a new animated comedy for Showtime about President Donald Trump's White House. The cable network ordered 10 episodes of the half-hour show, which will premiere this fall.
The as-yet-untitled show will be a mockumentary-style workplace comedy that doubles as a character study. Per a statement it will "present the truish adventures of Trump’s confidants and bon vivants – family, top associates, heads of government, golf pros and anyone else straying into his orbit – intrepidly exploring their histories and their psyches, revealing insights into what makes them so definitively Trumpian. »
He's sexy and he knows it. In a Conan cold open that aired Wednesday, Conan O'Brien takes an unexpected detour en route to Comic-Con San Diego 2017, where he will host his talk show on-site for the third year in a row. What was supposed to be a road trip with sidekick Andy Richter turns into a Wonder Woman adventure as he is unceremoniously dumped on the side of the road due to his inability to accept the fact that, clearly, the driver has power over the radio. He then, conveniently, finds a World War I-era German fighter plane, flies it for more than half a day and ends up in the hidden island of Themyscira, home of Diana Prince and her fellow Amazon warriors, parodying »
Jared Padalecki didn't exactly act his age his 35th birthday. Along with his Supernatural co-star Jensen Ackles, he appeared on TBS' Conan Wednesday, taped in San Diego in celebration of 2017 Comic-Con. "You guys have a tradition on your birthday of celebrating in a certain way," Conan O'Brien said. "You want to tell us what that is?" "Yeah," Padalecki deadpanned. "We streak." Though the audience cheered, Ackles said, "That's not...no. That's not really what we do." "Technically, it's usually the next day," Padalecki joked, "because we've had too much to drink." Ackles then explained their tradition. »

As we've learned from the kings of late-night, hosting a show comes with a side dish of drama. Such was famously the case for Jay Leno and his colleagues, David Letterman and Conan O'Brien. As we know from television history, Leno first faced drama with Letterman when Johnny Carson retired from the helm of The Tonight Show in 1992. While many—including Carson himself—expected then-Late Night host Letterman to replace him, as the infamous story goes, the gig ultimately went to his fellow comedian. Meanwhile, Letterman settled into his new role as Late Show host, a position that would allow him to directly compete with Leno at the same time at rival network, CBS. The »
Leslie Jones ain't too proud to beg. When the 49-year-old comic appeared on TBS' Conan Thursday, Conan O'Brien felt compelled to mention some of her more provocative tweets. For example, on Feb. 21, she tweeted, "I'm drunk and I want to have sex right now!! Dammit!!" Jones explained herself, saying, "I'm a grown-ass woman and I sent out a grown-ass tweet—and I expected grown-ass answers, Ok?" O'Brien then referenced one of Jones' tweets from March, in which she wrote, "Man I hope I get to have sex before I leave L.A.! But I don't know, the men are so scared of me out here! Where the warriors at?!" Jones insisted she "wasn't drunk" when she »
Adam West, the actor best known for his role as Batman in the 1960s television series, has died at the age of 88 from a battle with leukemia late on Friday night. West's family shared a statement with Variety to confirm the news. The family offered this to fans.
"Our dad always saw himself as the Bright Knight, and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans' lives. He was and will always be our hero."
For many, Adam West was their introduction to the world of Batman, and for some, he was the only Batman that mattered. One of West's many talents as an actor was not taking himself too seriously. He could keep a straight face through the most absurd moments, while keeping the fun going on the campy 60's television show. He could surf with the joker, dance with Catwoman while doing the "Batusi," campaigning for mayor of Gotham alongside the Penguin, »
