Rich Eisen on Why Super Bowl Lii Will Be ‘Jaw-Droppingly Incredible’ (Video)

Katy Perry's Star-Studded "Swish Swish" Video Is Giving Us Major Space Jam Vibes

A month after Katy Perry dropped a lyric video for "Swish Swish" starring Brazilian Gif queen and former pop singer Gretchen (née Maria Odete Brito de Miranda), the pop diva released her full-length video, which embraces the basketball theme of the song literally and features a ton of eclectic stars as Perry's losing team the Tigers go up against the Sheep. The music video might be a campy take on a basketball game, but it's reminiscent of the star-studded lineup Perry's longtime rival Taylor Swift got together for her elaborate "Bad Blood" video (since "Bad Blood" is a dis track about Perry and "Swish Swish" is about Swift, the move makes perfect sense). Included in video are Molly Shannon, Terry Crews, Thor Björnsson (aka The Mountain on Game of Thrones), Glee alum Jenna Ushkowitz, Gaten Matarazzo of Stranger Things fame, the cast of Glow, Internet star Christine Sydelko, and sportscasters Bill Walton and Rich Eisen.

Matt Damon Dresses Up Like Tom Brady to Sneak onto 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' and Keeps the Feud Alive

Matt Damon Dresses Up Like Tom Brady to Sneak onto 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' and Keeps the Feud Alive
Matt Damon employed some clever costuming and Super Bowl fever to sneak onto Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, posing as New England Patriots quarterback and Super Bowl Mvp Tom Brady.

Damon came out decked out in Brady's jersey and rocking his football helmet, but it was clear the ruse wasn't going to hold up -- mostly because you could still see Damon's face, and he didn't alter his voice at all.

Watch: Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel Burst Out Laughing at Couples Therapy

After Kimmel pulled the helmet off, the audience went wild, cheering for the Great Wall actor uproariously as an annoyed Kimmel tried to get them to calm down.

"Touchdown!" an extremely amped up Damon yelled at Kimmel. "I won the Super Bowl and I won your stupid show!"

Jon Hamm Is Positive Don Draper Would Be Dead By Now

Don Draper would be long gone by now if he were an actual person, as far as Jon Hamm is concerned. 

The Emmy-winning Mad Men star dropped by the Rich Eisen Show for a recent interview and said it was his opinion that while Draper did come up with the iconic Coke jingle, which is hinted at in the series finale, he would not have changed his destructive lifestyle. 

"He'd be in his 80s (now) and there ain't no way that guy is getting into his 80s without a massive lifestyle shift, which maybe he did at the end...

When Kevin Costner went mushroom hunting while filming Robin Hood

Simon Brew Jan 6, 2017

During a lunch break on the shoot of Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves, Kevin Costner went looking for, er, 'special mushrooms'...

Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves celebrated its 25th anniversary last year, the year that we also lost the mighty Alan Rickman (who, of course, stole every scene he was let near in the movie). It’s a film that remains a favourite for many, and in a new interview, Kevin Costner has shared a behind the scenes story from the making of the movie. In particular, how a swordfight scene in the movie was nearly ‘delayed’ by a search for some, well, mushrooms. Those kind of mushrooms.

Kevin Costner Went Looking for Mushrooms With a Stuntman While Filming 'Robin Hood'

It seems hope was not all that was growing in Sherwood Forest.

During an interview Thursday on The Rich Eisen Show, Kevin Costner revealed that he went on something of a hunt with his stuntman while the two had some downtime on the set of the iconic 1991 adventure film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

Costner told Eisen that he befriended the stuntman and that the two — in costume — went off into the wooded location to find some mushrooms. Yes, those kinds of mushrooms.

Costner said he was not having much luck finding any vegetation, but his stuntman did. However, before they took...

Matthew McConaughey Would Play Rust Cohle Again in True Detective Season 3

HBO had something special on its hands with the first season of True Detective, a show that was not only a pop culture phenomenon, but also led the charge in the trend of A-list movie stars heading from the movies to prestige TV shows. The first season was excellent, but the second season — with completely different actors and different directors — was a creative disaster and maybe the most drastic drop in quality from one season of a show to the next that I can remember. I know season two has its defenders, but just did not work for me on any level.

There's been talk of a possible third season, and perhaps what the show needs to get back up and running again is an injection of what made the first season so awesome to begin with: namely, Matthew McConaughey as Rust Cohle. The actor has mentioned being

Aretha Franklin took center field to perform the national anthem at the Detroit Lions-Minnesota Vikings game on Thanksgiving Thursday.

Clad in her trademark fur coat and wearing a Detroit beanie (her hometown), the Queen of Soul sat down at the piano and embarked on a soulful rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner”

A soulful, but long, rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner.”

When she played her last note, the song clocked in at 4 minutes and 35 seconds.

Twitter had a field day with song’s length, as did the game’s broadcaster, CBS, who put up the following graphic.

The graphic showed not only the Vikings’ and Lions’ time of possession, but also Aretha Franklin’s.

Check out some of the funniest Twitter replies:

Sports anchor Rich Eisen simply wrote, “Aretha, for the win.”

Steven Bochco Developing ‘L.A. Law’ Reboot
L.A. Law” creator Steven Bochco is working on a reboot of the classic ’80s legal workplace drama.

Speaking on the Rich Eisen Show Monday, Bochco said that he has been asked frequently in the more than 20 years since the series went off the air to reboot “L.A. Law,” but has never been interested in doing so. Then he was contacted four months ago by one of the show’s original writers, Bill Finkelstein, who had an idea for a revamped version.

“I called my friends at Fox, because they own the show, and they were very interested in having a conversation, and so Billy and I sat down and we sort of reconceptualized what ‘L.A. Law’ would look like and be about over 30 years later,” Bochco said, adding that he could see some actors from the original series returning for the new version.

Bryan Cranston doesn’t miss “Breaking Bad” — but he’s still down to play Walter White once more. “I owe Vince Gilligan so much — he was my champion to get this role,” the actor told Rich Eisen in a Tuesday interview. “I was the guy coming off ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ — seven years of playing this really silly, hapless dad, and said, ‘He’s my guy. This is the guy I want.'” “Without the creator of the show having that much assistance … it might not have happened,” Cranston admitted.
