Allison Janney Demonstrates Meryl Streep’s Kissing Technique on Graham Norton

Graham Norton wasn’t shy in wanting Allison Janney to demonstrate the kissing technique that she was taught by Meryl Streep, in fact he seemed pretty excited. And why not? Janney is an attractive older woman with a great sense of humor and it was more of a demonstration than anything really fully on and tongue-heavy. That still doesn’t take away from the fact that a kiss is a kiss, whether it’s demonstration or actual passion. Of course what it means to each person is what makes it a good thing or something that just passes between them. Have you ever

Why It’s Time to Bring Back Graham Norton to the U.S.

Graham Norton, an Irish television personality and radio presenter has become extremely popular in the United Kingdom. His career got its start back in 1992, and since this time, he has achieved a large amount of success. He even attempted to make it “across the pond” with a show in the United States called “Would You Rather…?” This show was a panel game that featured comedians and celebrities from America who were asked a series of questions that started with “Would you rather…?” It was originally aired on BBC America in December of 2011, but only lasted for a single

Tom Cruise Reacts to Graphic Footage of Breaking His Ankle on ‘Mission: Impossible’ Set — Watch
While we continue to wait for the “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” trailer to drop later this week during the Super Bowl, UK television host Graham Norton has delivered the ultimate gift: Footage of Tom Cruise being forced to watch the set footage of himself breaking his ankle during a stunt gone wrong.

Cruise made headlines last August when he was injured during the making of the latest “Mission: Impossible” film, which is being directed by Christopher McQuarrie. The actor is famous for performing all of his own stunts, but he came up short when leaping from one building top to the next and he broke his ankle as a result.

Norton got his hands on the incredibly graphic video and played it for Cruise and his co-stars, Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson, and Simon Pegg. All of them were predictably squeamish, and you

Watch Tom Cruise Break His Ankle in Mission: Impossible 6 Stunt Video

Watch Tom Cruise Break His Ankle in Mission: Impossible 6 Stunt Video
Back in August of 2017, Tom Cruise broke his ankle on the set of Mission: Impossible 6 while performing a stunt that involved him jumping from one building to another. The accident caused production to halt, which led to more than one actor calling out Cruise for performing his own stunts. Many argued that the stunts should be left to the professionals in case of an accident, that way production doesn't get stopped, leaving many in the crew out of work. Tom Cruise is back on the set, performing his own stunts again and he stopped by the Graham Norton Show to provide some slow-motion video of him breaking his ankle on the set.

Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, and Rebecca Ferguson were on the Graham Norton Show to promote Mission: Impossible - Fallout, which is still on track to come out on July 28th of this year. While talking to Cruise,

Watch Tom Cruise Break His Ankle While Shooting Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Aside from his involvement in a super creepy cult, I find it difficult to dislike Tom Cruise. Sure, he’s a bit odd, but he’s always nice to his fans on the red carpet and he comes across as an admirably dedicated and hardworking actor. That said, check out the poor bastard snapping his ankle in two jumping between buildings while filming Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Clearly, he took things a little too seriously when someone told him to ‘break a leg’ before he went to set that day.

Impressively, we get to see the accident from multiple angles, with talk show host Graham Norton taking us, Cruise and his other guests (Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill and Simon Pegg) through the injury. It seems that Cruise as Ethan Hunt was always supposed to splat up against the wall and scramble up onto the other building, but definitely wasn’t supposed

Friday’s best TV: The Last Leg; Lethal Weapon

  • The Guardian - TV News
Return of the cheerful, topical comedy hosted by Adam Hills; Riggs and Murtaugh investigate the death of a pop star’s bodyguard. Plus: Graham Norton welcomes Tom Cruise back to the sofa

This cheerful, topical comedy is never off air for long – and with world affairs teetering on the brink of madness so much of the time at the moment, that is probably not surprising. The genial but incisive Adam Hills hosts, while Alex Brooker and Josh Widdicombe comprise the show’s regular comedy backbone. As ever, it is likely that the special celebrity guests – keen to stretch their satirical chops as a form of protest – will provide the incentive to watch. Increasingly, something of a Friday evening institution. John Robinson

'Humour is ingrained into our DNA': meet the Irish women making TV's best comedies

From Channel 4’s Derry Girls to Rte’s Nowhere Fast, female-led Irish comedies are coming thick and fast. We talk to the people behind them, and ask if they can help drive societal change

Watching Irish comedy on television usually means watching something written and directed by a man. For all the deserved admiration bestowed on talent like Chris O’Dowd, Dylan Moran, Graham Norton, Tommy Tiernan, Graham Linehan, Dermot Morgan and Brendan O’Carroll, they have one thing in common, and it’s not their accents.

So, it’s refreshing to see Lisa McGee fly the flag with her well-received Channel 4 series Derry Girls. The better news is that after years of being sidelined or mostly represented by Sharon Horgan (co-writer of and the mind behind Pulling, Divorce, Catastrophe and Motherland) or on panel shows (hello Aisling Bea) it leads a new wave of Irish women playing a central role in TV comedy.

Helen Mirren Recalls a Spooky Encounter on Her Wedding Night to Taylor Hackford

Helen Mirren Recalls a Spooky Encounter on Her Wedding Night to Taylor Hackford
Dame Helen Mirren had a huge thrill on her wedding night — but not one that most newlyweds wish for!

The Oscar winner, soon to be seen in the spooky horror Winchester, married director Taylor Hackford in 1997 after 11 years together, and spent her wedding night in a romantic turret of historic Castle Stewart, Scotland.

The night however didn’t turn out quite as The Queen star and her new husband, both 72, had planned.

“When we arrived who runs the castle, said ‘This castle is haunted. When I was renovating the castle I saw ghosts’,” Mirren told British daytime TV show This Morning on Wednesday.

Liam Neeson’s Story About his First Reaction to Seeing Helen Mirren is Worth Watching

I think it’s safe to say that Liam Neeson’s first reaction to ever seeing Helen Mirren is worth remembering as well as watching. It seems to be the same reaction that a lot of people have when meeting someone that they can’t take their eyes off initially, a reaction that says that they are immediately attracted and thunderstruck all at once. I won’t repeat what he said on the Graham Norton show but I can certainly understand it, and I can say that a lot of us have felt the same way when we see the object of our affection,

Tom Hiddleston got Aardman job because of The Graham Norton Show

Simon Brew Jan 17, 2018

Early Man director Nick Park cast Eddie Redmayne thanks to a Sean Bean film, and Tom Hiddleston thanks to Graham Norton...

Multi-Oscar winner Nick Park isn’t just a world-class filmmaker, he’s also a very lateral man when it comes to casting his films. For his new animated feature Early Man, that lands in cinemas here on January 25th, he’s given the two lead male vocal roles to Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston. But the way that he settled on both of those actors is very, very Nick Park-y.

For Redmayne, it wasn’t his Oscar-winning turn in The Theory Of Everything, his family movie credentials from Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them or his villain and a half in Jupiter Ascending. Rather, it was the 2008 horror Black Death, the film in which Redmayne was beaten up by Sean Bean. Off the back of that,

Maisie Williams Adds Tom Hanks To Arya Stark's Kill List In Hilarious Video

Maisie Williams isn't Arya Stark, but that doesn't stop fans from coming up to her and asking to do bizarre Arya Stark things. The Game of Thrones actress was on Graham Norton and revealed that people often come up to her and want her to recite her kill list but then include their name as well, which I personally think is a bit weird. Watch Williams give an example of how she does this for fans below, and get a chuckle out of her adding Tom Hanks to the list!

“You’re a Twat!” – How Mike Read Ruined ‘An Evening With Chevy Chase’

Dan Palmer reports from An Evening With Chevy Chase in London’s Hammersmith…

Chevy Chase is primarily known for two things; his highly successful 1980s comedy career and being something of a prickly pear… emphasis on the prick. As a dyed-in-the wool fan of Mister Chase and his oeuvre (including such genuine comedic classics as Foul Play, Spies Like Us, Fletch and the Vacation series) I’ve always been something of an apologist when confronted with tales of his abrasive behaviour. In the style of a good friend or benefactor of a #MeToo suspect.

So, when entering the Hammersmith Apollo on Saturday night to see ‘An Evening with Comedy Legend Chevy Chase’ I have to admit there were mild concerns, gurgling in the back of my lizard brain, that Chevy might quantify these tales of telling fans to, “go fuck ’em selves” and slapping people in the face in the most auspicious setting possible.

A 'brilliant speech' convinced Bafta to hire Joanna Lumley as new host

Bafta CEO Amanda Berry talks to Screen about new host.

Source: BBC

Joanna Lumley

Bafta CEO Amanda Berry has said that Joanna Lumley’s acceptance speech for her Bafta TV Fellowship in May 2017 went a long way to convincing the organisation’s hierarchy that she would be a fitting successor to Stephen Fry who hosted the ceremony for 12 years.

“The list of people who could host an awards ceremony is very short,” Berry told Screen.

“It is not an easy job. You need to get the tone absolutely right. You need to be able to guide the audience seamlessly through proceedings while keeping the attention on the nominees. We were all taken aback by Joanna’s brilliant speech when she received the Bafta TV Fellowship last year. She was so charming and mesmerising. When we talked about candidates she was on the list from early on. It wasn’t a difficult decision. We didn’t have

5 Things We Know About Gary Oldman's New Wife, Gisele Schmidt
Gary Oldman has officially won his first Golden Globe! On Sunday, when Gary took the stage to accept the award for best actor in a drama, he began by quoting Winston Churchill, who he portrayed in Darkest Hour, and then gave his wife Gisele Schmidt a sweet shout out because she "put up with my crazy for over a year." He then told a funny story about his wife while he was filming the movie, and it's too cute. "She would say to friends, 'I go to bed with Winston Churchill but I wake up with Gary Oldman,' which I suppose is better than the other way around," he said. After Gary gave this sweet nod to Gisele, it got us wondering about the star's wife. Who is she? What do we know about her? Honestly, you might not know much, but we've discovered a few details about Gisele

The 20 Best Late-Night TV Moments of 2017

The 20 Best Late-Night TV Moments of 2017
Even as most shows have begun to coalesce around the same headline-response efforts on a daily and weekly basis, there’s still enough variety in late night TV to avoid painting it with the same broad brush. Sure, some days make it hard for approaches to the day’s biggest news stories not to have a little overlap.

But, for the most part, the stand-out moments from late night TV in 2017 come from the singular ways that these shows confronted a wide range of issues and curiosities outside DC confines. Some of them were political, others were defiant, and more still added some much-needed silliness amidst a yearlong wave of anxiety.

With the sheer volume of late-night-structured shows on TV, we were able to pick out a memorable moment for each of them, across network, broadcast, and premium cable here in the States. (If you’re looking for the year’s best Graham Norton clips,

'Lord of the Rings': Could Ian McKellen Reprise Gandalf for Amazon?

Ian McKellen's days playing Gandalf may not be over.

As Amazon Studios plots a TV series based on Lord of the Rings, the actor behind the 7,000-year-old character indicated in a new radio interview that he would be open to reprising his role from the Peter Jackson features.

"I haven't been asked," McKellen told British host Graham Norton when asked whether he'd been approached for the role of Gandalf in the planned two-season Lord of the Rings TV series.

McKellen, who played the wizard in all three Lord of the Rings features as well as prequel The Hobbit, seemed...
