Watch: Tour of Guillermo del Toro’s “Bleak House” Verifies the Director’s Love of Cinema

28 July 2016 12:14 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Director Guillermo del Toro is undeniably one of the most gleefully geeky directors working in Hollywood. His love of horror, fantasy, and the history of cinema blends effortlessly into his works, just as his painstaking attention to detail demonstrates his true care for the world of movies. Andy Richter of the Conan O’Brien Show recently visited the Pan’s Labyrinth director’s wondrous and bizarre “Bleak House,” more akin in many ways to a museum than a humble abode.

From a massive Boris Karloff head as Frankstein’s Monster greeting guests in the foyer to incredibly detailed, life-sized recreations of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allen poe in the den, del Toro’s locale proves the director’s inspirations (and creations) are truly dear to him. See the full tour below, with a countless number of classic cinematic artifacts and recreations — along with Andy’s cameraman accidentally breaking an object. »

Votd: Tour Guillermo del Toro’s Bleak House With Andy Richter

28 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

If you’re even a casual Guillermo del Toro fan, you’ve probably heard of Bleak House, the director’s second home. It looks like any other San Fernando Valley suburban home from the outside, but inside is a treasure trove of weird and wonderful memorabilia including original art, movie props, medical oddities, books and comics, hyper-realistic live-sized mannequins of H.P. Lovecraft and […]

Take a Video Tour of Guillermo del Toro's Ridiculous House

27 July 2016 7:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

No one should ever have any reason to doubt Guillermo del Toro's status as an enormous movie geek. Movies like Blade II, Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim and Crimson Peak are practically dripping with admiration for the artists and filmmakers that came before him. It's not exactly something del Toro hides in his filmmaking, and apparently it's not something he hides in his day-to-day life, either. Andy Richter visited del Toro's home for Conan and it's basically like taking a tour through Willy Wonka's factory-- if Wonka was obsessed with horror movies and macabre icons of yesteryear. He has life size replicas of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe staged as if they're real people just hanging out in his house. A giant replica of...

Watch Conan's Young Han Solo Auditions with 50 Cent, Adam Sandler and More

27 July 2016 11:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month during Star Wars Celebration, LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy made it official by announcing Alden Ehrenreich as the Young Han Solo, who will star in the upcoming spinoff Han Solo: A Star Wars Story. A week later, during Comic-Con, Conan O'Brien took his late-night talk show to San Diego for a series of live tapings, where he showed fans some of the other major stars who also tried out for the Han Solo role, before Alden Ehrenreich won the coveted part. As you can see, the young actor had plenty of worthy competitors.

Of course, this video that surfaced on Team Coco YouTube after its broadcast is fake, with several beloved comedians and other celebrities donning that iconic Han Solo vest to try out for the role. This audition reel features stars such as Bill Hader, Will Arnett, Melissa McCarthy, Thomas Middleditch, Jodie Foster, Adam Sandler, Kumail Nanjiani, »

Among the beautiful suburban Los Angeles homes of San Fernando Valley is one twisted collection of horrors. Guillermo del Toro recently opened his doors to Andy Richter and the Conan crew for a tour of his massive home filled to the brim with collectibles.

Among the gun props from “Hell Boy,” numerous medical oddities and memorabilia are del Toro’s incredibly lifelike wax mannequin roommates. H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe read their books in the living room, while upstairs is a replica of Mike Hill from “Jason and the Argonauts.”

“How long did it take you before having incredibly life sized mannequins freaked you out? Like, do you wake up in the night?” asks Richter.

Sarah Silverman made 'Howard Stern Show' history at the DNC

26 July 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sarah Silverman made big news on Monday night when she called the "Bernie or Bust" crowd "ridiculous" from the DNC stage in primetime, but for Howard Stern fans her speech was notable for another reason: it was the first time "Baba Booey" was invoked, at least to my knowledge, at a major political convention. For those not in the know: "Baba Booey" is the nickname of longtime Howard Stern Show producer Gary Dell'Abate, who has (mostly) come to embrace the moniker since he was first anointed with it on July 26, 1990 (backstory here). More broadly, though, it's become a way for Stern Show fans to make their presence known at high-profile events, from professional golf tournaments to network news broadcasts. In short: when you hear "Baba Booey" shouted out, you can be pretty sure there's a Stern fanatic in the general vicinity. Silverman -- who was an ardent Bernie Sanders supporter »

Is Andy Richter the rightful heir to the Iron Throne?

29 June 2016 8:55 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On last night's episode of Conan, a major Game of Thrones shocker was revealed: Andy Richter just might be the rightful heir to the Iron Throne ... if he wires money to a Nigerian bank. Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter got into the Thrones fun with a funny sketch playing off an old internet scam. After a bunch of ravens deliver Richter the good news, O'Brien becomes suspicious that it's all a scam. It certainly doesn't help that the email is "KingOfWestoros@NotScam.biz ." »

‘Game of Thrones’ Shocking Twist: Andy Richter Inherits the Iron Throne (Video)

29 June 2016 7:26 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Andy Richter found out on Tuesday that he is the rightful heir to the “Game of Thrones” Iron Throne. Not bad for a TBS sidekick. “To claim the Throne, please wire 50,000 gold coins to the Iron Bank of Nigeria via Western Union,” Richter read off a scroll on last night’s “Conan.” That’s when boss Conan O’Brien started getting suspicious of the offer.

Game of Thrones Sneak Peek: Davos Protects Jon Snow’s Body

Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos on the HBO fantasy series, was on Conan last night to preview the new season as best he could with Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter. However, whenever the pair asked a more spoilery question, Cunningham joked that HBO had set trained snipers to take him out if he was about to spoil anything about Season 6 (a red dot even appeared on Cunningham’s shoulder at one point), including the death of Jon Snow. But even though Cunningham wasn’t allowed to say much about Game of Thrones‘ new season, he was allowed to show a clip,

Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter take the Batmobile for a spin, only blow up one ice cream truck

1 April 2016 7:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you thought that Conan opening segment when Conan O'Brien took his show on the road to San Diego in Fury Road's Doof Wagon was great, you'll love last night's tribute to Batman v Superman. O'Brien and his faithful sidekick Andy Richter need to rent a car, but are faced with either a Toyota Corolla that is unfit for celebrities of their stature or, for just five dollars more, the Batmobile. They take the Batmobile, and then take full advantage of its voice modulator, cloaking device, and speed before they're pulled over for going approximately 400 mph over the speed limit. They also inadvertently take advantage of its firepower, but only blow up one ice cream truck. Unfortunately, O'Brien didn't choose to buy the rental car insurance.  »
