Conan O'Brien Gets Tango Lesson from Jb Smoove (Video)

10 December 2014 4:35 AM, PST | | See recent news »

If you're going to get an on-air tango lesson, you could do a lot worse for a teacher than a guy named Jb Smoove. And Smoove, who costars in Chris Rock's new film, Take Five, didn't disappoint pupil Conan O'Brien Tuesday night, when he appeared on Conan for the impromptu tutorial. Watching the two 6-foot-plus men dip each each extremely low as co-host Andy Richter looks on is, well ... honestly, it's actually hard to look away, like watching tropical birds perform their mating dance. Smoove recently told The New York Times that he actually got started in the entertainment industry as a hip-hop dancer, »

Best of Late Night TV: Joaquin Phoenix's Twisted Engagement Story, Aaron Paul's Big Birthday Surprise (Video)

8 December 2014 11:10 PM, PST | 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.

Joaquin Phoenix was on "Late Show with David Letterman" Monday night, sharing a really odd story - not that there's any other kind with him - about starting yoga, and getting tangled up in some positions, like "Harness of the Hog." He and Dave took the story to the middle of the stage so Joaquin could demonstrate. But it turns out he started dating his yoga instructor and they recently got engaged. This guy. Who knows what to think with him. Remember when Joaquin was on this show a while back and Dave said it's a shame he couldn't be there that night? Good times! Joaquin talked about that »

Jennifer Aniston Tells Conan About Her Weird Horrible Bosses 2 Necklace

4 December 2014 10:37 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In Horrible Bosses 2, which came out at the end of November, Jennifer Aniston reprises her role as a rapacious, sex-addicted dentist. The actress visited Conan tonight to talk about the role, and things got kind of weird. It wasn't bad weird, it was just oh-i-was-actually-wearing-a-cock-ring-necklace-in-the-movie weird. (Yes, a cock-ring necklace, a.k.a. maybe the strangest objective correlative of all time.) Naturally, Conan and Andy Richter had some faux-naïve fun with sizes and logistics. »

33 Things on TV to Be Thankful for This Thanksgiving

27 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At this time of year, it's good to be reminded that contemporary TV offers such a cornucopia of riches. This past year, in particular, has offered plenty to give thanks for -- in terms of both what's on the air and what is not. Among the things I'm thankful for:

That "The Flash" is actually good.

That recent, pricelessly funny Billy Bob Thornton guest spot as a lovelorn urologist-to-the-stars on "The Big Bang Theory."

That I don't work at the "Today" show.

That David E. Kelley is writing a TV show for Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman to star in.

That this is the last season for "Two and a Half Men."

That "Seinfeld" reruns still hold up pretty well.

That Casper Kelly made '80s sitcom parody "Too Many Cooks." Whether or not you like the finished product -- and it's often pretty disgusting -- I'm glad someone had the impulse to make it. »

Film Review: ‘Penguins of Madagascar’ is Definitely No Turkey

27 November 2014 5:11 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – The only thing rarer than a spinoff that soars over its inspiration is a DreamWorks Animation production without “Dragon” in the title, and one that’s actually worth watching. Improbably, “Penguins Of Madagascar” is both.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

To be honest, I’ve felt the “Madagascar” series to be typical of DreamWorks decidedly second-tier status in the field of animation. They lacked the imagination of Pixar’s best efforts, and settled for the usual collection of celebrity voices and overly hyperactive animation, topped off with a generic frenetic dance sequence that fades from memory before the beat even stops. While “Penguins” doesn’t exactly set itself apart per se, it does freshen up the formula and shows why it became popular in the first place.

This film sends the quartet of Skipper, Kowalski, Private, and Rico into their own secret agent spy adventure beginning with an inventive heist at Fort Knox. »

An octopus, Benedict Cumberbatch, and the Penguins of Madagascar

26 November 2014 10:28 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

What do you get when you mix an evil octopus, the internet’s boyfriend Benedict Cumberbatch, and some spying penguins?  The Penguins of Madagascar.

A spin-off of the popular “Afro Circus”-singing franchise sees sidekicks Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico upgraded to leading bird status in their brand new adventure that sees them coming nose-to-nose- or beak-to-tentacle, as it were - with a dastardly octopus named Dave (John Malkovich) who’s bent on destroying the world.  But they’re not in this mission alone: the super-secret spy agency The North Wind has lent Agent Classified (Cumberbatch) to the cause.

The Penguins’ vocal cast includes all four of the original voice actors to provide their signature sounds while the film mixes in characters voiced by the likes of Peter Stormare, Andy Richter, and Ken Jeong.  Tom McGrath, the voice of Skipper, is one of the writers and original creators of the Madagascar series. »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Blu-ray Trailer Teases 'Avengers 2'

13 November 2014 1:50 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In case you aren't aware by now, thanks to an onslaught of featurettes lately, Guardians of the Galaxy will debut on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD on December 9. Today, Marvel has released an official Blu-ray trailer for this Phase Two adventure, which includes a tiny glimpse at the previously announced sneak peek of Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The trailer also offers some behind-the-scenes footage, along with quotes from celebrities such as Mindy Kaling, Rainn Wilson and Andy Richter, who all praise this intergalactic adventure. If that wasn't enough, we also have an excerpt from the bonus features, where director James Gunn explains that he used a real raccoon named Oreo as a reference for Rocket Raccoon, along with footage of the filmmaker himself acting out some of Groot's movements for the animators.

Last but not least, we have a deleted scene that features the warring siblings Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and »

All Hail King Julien Hits On Netflix December 19

10 November 2014 9:33 AM, PST | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

We all know that the best part of the Madagascar films is King Julien, and now he is finally getting the chance to take center stage as his own series hits on Netflix. All Hail King Julien, which apparently takes place before the events of the films, is just centered on life in King Julien’s court, and the wild antics that must take place there.

Along with the familiar voices you know, there are plenty of new characters joining the show, including Henry Winkler as King Julien’s predecessor… Uncle King Julien.

This one is going to kick off with the first five episodes, with more on the way, and it is going to be a lot of fun.

Best of Late Night TV: Savannah Guthrie, Matt Lauer Play 'Pop Quiz'; Dr. Phil's Scary Naked Selfie Leaks (Video)

4 November 2014 11:00 PM, PST | 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.

"Today" co-anchors Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer were on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night, and they were game to rock super-pointy dunce caps and play "Pop Quiz." Last night was an election night, but all the questions were pop culture-related. Jimmy was the ref and the loser was drenched by a giant water balloon. Guess who lost? Let's just say he wasn't feeling too glib after being soaked! He got his revenge on Jimmy, though.

Dr. Phil was on "Conan" and Conan O'Brien asked for Phil's take on the naked celebrity selfies out there. In his opinion, what's going on? Phil said he understands people taking them but not posting them. »

Netflix To Release Installments Of DreamWorks Animation’s ‘All Hail King Julien’

4 November 2014 7:16 AM, PST | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Netflix loves breaking entertainment industry standards, even its own. The streaming video-on-demand service announced it will release the first five episodes of DreamWorks Animation’s (Dwa) All Hail King Julien on December 19, 2014, with additional episodes released in 2015. The staggered release differs from Netflix’s typical practice of producing original programming and debuting it all in one binge-watchable fell swoop. However, Netflix and Dwa have noted animation takes longer to create, so subsequent release dates for new material is simply part of the equation. The two companies previously released Turbo Fast in the same manner. All Hail King Julien will center around the popular lemur from Dwa’s Madagascar franchise, and feature the voice talents of Henry Winkler, Danny Jacobs, Andy Richter, Kevin Michael Richardson, and India de Beaufort. The series will be available to Netflix subscribers in most parts of the world covered by the agreement Dwa and Netflix made »

Andy Richter's Comeback to Chelsea Handler's Fat Joke Is Absolutely Amazing—Watch

While many may be weary of messing with Chelsea Handler (after all, she loves pulling pranks on her pals), it turns out, the real celeb we should be looking out for is Andy Richter.  The 39-year-old comedienne recently appeared on Conan where she attempted to poke fun at Conan's sidekick, but unfortunately for Handler (and lucky for us all), Richter was ready with a perfect comeback.  Handler was addressing the video that made the Internet rounds where Jason Biggs is urinating on her as she swims in the ocean, which prompted the TV personality to ask both Conan and Richter if they enjoy the ocean.  "I like the ocean very »

Andy Richter Zings Back At Chelsea Handler After Fat Joke

21 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Chelsea Handler and Andy Richter were both guests on Conan O’Brien’s late night show when Richter came up with a perfect comeback for one of Handler’s barbs.

Chelsea Handler vs. Andy Richter

The segment started with Conan asking Handler about the viral Vine of Jason Biggs peeing on her off the side of a boat, which was appropriately captioned by Biggs’ wife Jenny Mollen, “For everyone who’s ever wanted to pee on @chelseahandler."

Turning to Richter, Handler asked, “Do you float a lot in the ocean?” At first Richter seemed taken aback by the standup comedian’s bit of fat-shaming, but quickly recovered to retort, “Sure. What, do you sink? Might be that cast-iron heart.”

Proving that she can both dish it out and take it, Handler burst out into laughter right alongside Richter and O'Brien, appreciating the joke made at her own expense.

Dax Shepard tells Conan about the time Kristen Bell shaved his butt

Dax Shepard went into some Magic Mike mode to prepare for his nude scene in This Is Where I Leave You. On Monday night, Dax Shepard went on Conan to talk about suffering from "tall white guy syndrome," which Shepard explains is "where your back just goes into your legs. There's really no butt cheeks there." To prepare for filming in the buff, Shepard pumped up his posterior with lunges and squats, but that wasn't the only booty issue he was worried about. Shepard was self-conscious about the hair between the cheeks, which Andy Richter euphemistically referred to as "a forest in the valley. »
