Zachary Levi loved Disney even before he started working for the Mouse House. But now that he's officially employed by Disney, he has received some added perks such as unlimited trips to Disneyland with friends and family, so it would probably come as no surprise that he's made friends with some of the Disneyland employees.

Watch Sir Patrick Stewart on Playing Poop: It Involved 'A Lot of Research'

10 March 2017 6:02 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Sir Patrick Stewart explained on Thursday's Conan that voicing Poop in the upcoming Emoji Movie is part of his "philosophy of finding diversity." 

"Thirty years ago, I probably wouldn't have accepted this role," the venerated actor admitted, emphasizing that the part is animated. "But I'm now honored and delighted to be playing the role of the emoji Poop."

Conan O'Brien, curious about all aspects of poop-playing, asked Stewart how he digested the news that he'd be voicing a piece of fecal matter. "I don't know how you're going to feel about this, »

2 March 2017 7:33 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Mandy Moore would like her real life to somewhat mirror her character Rebecca's life on This Is Us.

While on Conan O'Brien's late-night show on Wednesday, the 32-year-old actress revealed that portraying a mother of three on the hit NBC show has made her "totally ready to have kids."

Moore admitted that while shooting This Is Us, she found herself looking out for her onscreen kids, who are played by Mackenzie Hancsicsak, Parker Bates and Lonnie Chavis. "We have three extraordinary young actors on the show, who have fantastic parents by the way. They’re very attentive," she gushed. "I think it’s a lot of their first jobs for most of them and any time there’s a scene that requires them to eat, I have to remind them."

Mandy Moore Says She's "Totally Ready to Have Kids Now" Thanks to This Is Us

2 March 2017 7:30 AM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

Mandy Moore might play a loving mother to three children on NBC's This Is Us, but is she ready to start a family in real life? During an interview with Conan O'Brien on Wednesday night, the 32-year-old actress revealed that playing matriarch Rebecca Pearson has completely turned her on to the idea of motherhood because of all the scenes she shares with the show's young child actors. "I mean, we get to hold these newborn children, and I can't believe their parents were willing to hand over their babies to me," she said about the flashback scenes of Rebecca's young kids. "I'm like, 'Hi, I'm Mandy. I have absolutely no experience with small children,' and they're like, 'Here's my 2-week-old baby.'" Mandy was married to musician Ryan Adams for nearly six years until their 2015 divorce, but it certainly seems like she hasn't ruled out having children with current boyfriend Taylor Goldsmith. »

'Conan Without Borders: Made in Mexico': TV Review

1 March 2017 9:01 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

When I interviewed Conan O'Brien in the summer, I asked about the political side of his recent push toward shooting episodes in foreign locations including South Korea, Qatar, Armenia and Cuba.

"The travel shows are very apolitical and a lot of the remotes are very apolitical," he initially claimed.

When I tried insisting there was something inherently political about emphasizing globalism when a major candidate for the presidency was pushing nationalism, he gave in a little.

"I suppose so. I suppose so," he agreed. "I guess, what I meant was, the idea is to make a connection »

TBS' Conan O'Brien has once again taken his show international.

O'Brien introduced the episode, saying he wanted to "take things in a more positive direction" after Trump's recent rhetoric, so he traveled to Mexico to shoot an episode of his TBS show with an all-Mexican crew and audience.

James Corden, Conan O'Brien and Stephen Colbert Try to Make Sense of Oscar Night's Best Picture Error

28 February 2017 5:59 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

One day after the 2017 Oscars, late night hosts tried to make sense of the Best Picture flub. Initially, Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty announced La La Land had been named the winner of the prestigious award, but it turned out Moonlight had actually won. The moment was incredibly shocking and awkward for everyone watching—in person or on TV—and PricewaterhouseCoopers continues to pay the price for its error. Come Monday, James Corden, Stephen Colbert and Conan O'Brien made light of the snafu. "There were a lot of surprising winners, a lot of surprising losers and a couple that were both," Corden quipped. The British host made light of Beatty's confusion, saying he »

In a preview of his March 1 south-of-the-border special, "Conan Without Borders: Made in Mexico," Conan O'Brien walks the streets of Mexico City asking for donations for President Trump's border wall, which Trump has famously vowed Mexico will pay for.

O'Brien held out a mini wall-shaped piggy bank and asked for money. "You would put love in there?" he asked one woman who said that is what she wanted to provide. "No, I need cash."

"If you donate 500 pesos you get your name on a brick on the wall," he said to a man he was trying to persuade. »

Review: 'The Lego Batman Movie' is Gotham City's Finest Hour Yet

7 February 2017 11:21 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Before The Lego Batman Movie, Chris McKay (of Moral Orel, Robot Chicken) was best known as the animation co-director and editor of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s 2014 film, The Lego Movie. His work on the critically acclaimed film earned him the American Cinema Editors Eddie Award for Best Edited Feature Film, Animation, as well as an Annie Award nomination for Best Edited Animation Feature Film. Now, McKay will forever be known as the guy who saved Gotham City’s Caped Crusader from a dark and gritty existence with The Lego Batman Movie, perhaps the best film based on a DC Comics property since 2008’s The Dark Knight, and maybe the best pure Batman movie since Nolan's Batman Begins (2005). The story opens with The Joker, voiced by Zach Galifianakis, leading a full-scale attack on Gotham City with Batman's vast Rogues Gallery of bad guys, including heavy hitters Bane (Doug »

Conan O'Brien Demands Halt to Lawsuit Accusing Him of Stealing Five Jokes

6 February 2017 7:40 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

According to Conan O'Brien, being called a "joke thief" is no laughing matter.

"Accusing a comedian of stealing a joke is the worst thing you can accuse them of, in my opinion, short of murder," he said during a deposition last September and released in court papers on Friday. "I think it's absolutely terrible."

O'Brien, his company Conaco, TBS, and other writers on his show, Conan, have now submitted a summary judgment motion aimed at defeating a copyright lawsuit brought by Robert "Alex" Kaseberg, who claims having five jokes posted on his blog lifted for O'Brien's monologue. The <a href="" »

3 February 2017 6:46 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If you're an Atlanta Falcons fan who believes in omens, you probably shouldn't watch this video.

In the third annual Super Bowl edition of "Clueless Gamer," Conan O'Brien welcomed New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to play For Honor with a few special guests.

After easily defeating O'Brien in the first round, Brady went up against Falcons defensive end, Dwight Freeney, who was still holding a grudge for all the times Brady beat him on the football field in the past.

Despite a valiant effort, Freeney's video game skills didn't match up to his athletic abilities, and he too fell Brady's onslaught of video game attacks.

"He won!" O'Brien, a New England native, proclaimed. "The Patriots won!"
