Best of Late Night TV: Evangeline Lilly's Odd Costume, Pregnant Emily Blunt Saved Meryl Streep's Life (Video)

25 November 2014 11:30 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.

Evangeline Lilly showed up on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in this odd Mad Hatter circus type outfit. As Jimmy asked, "What the hell are you wearing?" It's a costume tied to her "Squickerwonkers" children's book. She wrote this story when she was 14. Evangeline is so bubbly and fun but, man, she is unrecognizable as Kate from "Lost" or Tauriel from "The Hobbit." Guess that's an actress for you! Jimmy said Evangeline had previously mentioned retiring from acting, and she did retire, but Peter Jackson called her out of retirement for "The Hobbit." (Don't worry, she does know that Tauriel was not actually in the book, that part is just a »

Paul Rudd's College Yearbook Photo Will Blow Your Mind

25 November 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Thanks to redditor SmoothBread, the Internet now knows what Paul Rudd looked like in the 1980s. We have to say, not much has changed except for one thing...

Pics: Stars Who Switched Up Their Signature Looks

That hair!

This University of Kansas yearbook photo shows the movie star sporting a wild Troy Polamalu-like mane normally associated with lead singers of hair metal bands or scientists inventing the flux capacitor.

But actually we've seen him with this look before...

Ned from Our Idiot Brother might be closer to the real Paul Rudd than we thought. »

Holy Hair! Paul Rudd's College Yearbook Photo Is Absolutely Amazing—Take a Look!

25 November 2014 3:07 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

So it's now proven that Paul Rudd does not age, but he does switch up his hairstyle every 20-ish years. Last night, a Redditor named SmoothBread shared an epic yearbook photo of the funny actor from his days as a Sigma Nu fraternity brother at the University of Kansas in the '80s, and aside from realizing that Paul Rudd looks exactly the same, we also can't overlook that wild and sexy hair! Get it, Paul! The 45-year-old star rocked a crazy mane when he was a younger lad, which leads us to believe that he was probably just as cool as we thought he would be in his college days. And although the charming and hilarious celeb continues to make fans swoon with his more mature and controlled 'do, we »

He also revealed that the fraternity keeps its chapter room locked, because the composites with Rudd in them "always get stolen."We can see why!The actor had some pretty famous friends in college too -- including Jon Hamm and sportscaster Joe Buck."He always liked to get naked.

Paul Rudd's Majestic '80s Hair Needs to Be Seen to Be Believed

25 November 2014 8:10 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

We already knew that Paul Rudd is incapable of aging, but now we've learned that he used to have an incredible head of hair. Reddit user SmoothBread shared a shot of Paul from his Sigma Nu fraternity photo during his days attending the University of Kansas in the late '80s. While we have to admit that Paul's current, shorter hairdo is more classic, it's hard to deny that his flowing locks are truly majestic. »

One of the most beloved routines from Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show reign is about to get its own television show: Lip Sync Battle, based on those ridiculous competitions that pit the late night host up against celebrities to see who can pantomime pop songs better, will head to Spike TV in 2015.

Jimmy Fallon’s Lip-Sync Battle Gets Its Own Show

22 November 2014 8:35 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jimmy Fallon's greatest celebrity challenge — the lip-sync battle — is getting its own stand-alone TV show. As we've learned from RuPaul's Drag Race, the lip sync tests a performer's charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent. Fallon, along with John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant, will executive-produce Lip Sync Battle for Spike TV. They'll also perform on the series. We already know Merchant does a mean lip sync, but we'd like to see a throwdown between Paul Rudd and Emma Stone, who gave us the most memorable performances on Fallon. Let's revisit, shall we?And of course, Ms. Stone. Who wins. No matter what. The show is set to drop April 2, 2015. »

Evangeline Lilly said she “held off” from joining Marvel’s Ant-Man after Edgar Wright’s departure

22 November 2014 1:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Evangeline Lilly is set to reprise the role of Tauriel next month for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, after which she’ll be joining another blockbuster franchise as she makes her Marvel Cinematic Debut as Hope Van Dyne in July’s Ant-Man. Speaking to InnerSpace (via Cbm), Lily has revealed that she held off on committing to the film following the departure of Edgar Wright, but was ultimately swayed by replacement director Peyton Reed’s take on the project…

“I was [bummed out] when Edgar and Marvel decided to part ways. I was nervous, and I kind of held off from signing my contract because I actually wanted to wait and see what would happen. I met Peyton [Reed] and we spoke, and I was convinced that I was going to do the project. He has such impeccable taste, he’s so collaborative, so much fun, and »

'Ant-Man' Nearly Lost Evangeline Lilly After Edgar Wright Exit

21 November 2014 12:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many fans were shocked when Marvel announced in May that director Edgar Wright had left Ant-Man, after spending more than ten years on developing the script with co-writer Joe Cornish. Just a few weeks later, Peyton Reed signed on to replace him, two months before shooting began this August in Atlanta. During a new interview with InnerSpace, actress Evangeline Lilly, who plays Hope Van Dyne, revealed that she actually held off from signing her contract with Marvel upon hearing that Edgar Wright was no longer directing, and nearly walked away from the project.

Here's what the actress had to say about Edgar Wright's departure and her experience working with Peyton Reed.

"I was [bummed out] when Edgar and Marvel decided to part ways. I was nervous, and I kind of held off from signing my contract because I actually wanted to wait and see what would happen. I met Peyton (Reed) and we spoke, »

21 November 2014 10:35 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spike TV is about to get a little more musical.  The network is partnering with Jimmy Fallon and his Eight Million Plus Prods. banner, John Krasinski, Stephen Merchant and Matador to create a “Lip Sync Battle” series. Fallon made the announcement Thursday night on “The Tonight Show” during his interview with Merchant.

“Lip Sync Battle” will run 10 half-hour episodes, featuring celebrities going head to head lip synching the song of their choice. The prize? Bragging rights.

Fallon, Krasinski and Merchant will appear and perform on the show, in addition to serving as exec producers. “Lip Sync Battle” will tape in January in New York for an April 2 premiere. It’s notable that a concept stemming from Fallon’s NBC series would find extended life on a cabler owned by Viacom.

Evangeline Lilly Initially Held Off Joining Ant-man After Marvel And Edgar Wright Split

21 November 2014 10:27 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When Edgar Wright abandoned Ant-Man six months ago, reports had said that the few cast members linked to the movie would be contractually obliged to stay on board as Marvel Studios searched high and low for Wright's replacement. Well, that might have been the case for Paul Rudd (Scott Lang) and Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), who signed on pretty early, but as Ant-Man nears post-production with Peyton Reed in the director's chair, Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne) has revealed that she had the option to leave. "I was [bummed out] when Edgar and Marvel decided to part ways," the actress admitted to InnerSpace. "I was nervous, and I kind of held off from signing my contract because I actually wanted to wait and see what would happen. I met Peyton [Reed] and we spoke, and I was convinced that I was going to do the project." Now that she's already wrapped »

Watch: The Trailer For 'Wet Hot American Summer' As Directed By Martin Scorsese

21 November 2014 8:22 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Vimeo user Tommy Button has turned David Wain's cult comedy “Wet Hot American Summer” into a high octane Martin Scorsese thriller. All it takes is a Rolling Stones song (in this case “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking”) and tightly edited shots of some fluid camerawork and slow motion, as well as interjecting the words "Sex," "Money" and "Power." To be honest, seeing all the familiar faces (Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Showalter, Elizabeth Banks, Ken Marino, Michael Ian Black and Bradley Cooper) distracts a bit from the Scorsese vibe. But still, it's a clever mashup, highlighting how much cutting and music can change the film's entire feeling. But if anything, this playful video reminds me what a great cast the film has and that I should plan a rewatch in the near future. Have a look below. [Av Club] »

17 November 2014 2:55 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A few minor supporting roles aside, we didn't see that much of Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly after Lost finished up until she landed the part of Elven warrior Tauriel in The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug. Now she's set to reprise the role for the third and final instalment ("The Battle Of The Five Armies"), and then we'll see her join Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas in Marvel's Ant-Man as a character there's been a bit of confusion about since her casting was announced, Hope Van-Dyn.

This is Your Official Marvel Phase 3 Movie Lineup Slide

17 November 2014 12:39 PM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Marvel's big reveal at a special Hollywood event for media and fans a few weeks ago was the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3 slate of movies, complete with logos and release dates. The reveal was  made using a slide that populated with the movie names as Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced them, and now that slide has finally been released as a clean image to replace the snapshots from a dark theater.

Here's how the Marvel phase 3 movie lineup shakes out. First up and not included on the slide is Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly, arriving in theaters on July 17, 2015. Ant-Man wasn't included because the slide was designed to show films that had not yet been announced, and it was well into production during the event.

2016 has two more Marvel Phase 3 movies starting with Captain America: Civil War on May 6. The third Steve Rogers-centric »
