The actor and former Saturday Night Live star also took time to share adorable photos of his 7-month-old son, Otis; Jason and his fiancée, Olivia Wilde, welcomed their baby boy in April, and as you can see in the above video, he is just as cute to look at as his famous parents. Jason revealed that Olivia picked out their son's name, telling Ellen, "She's been a fan of Otis Redding since she was a little girl. So she's been cool forever, obviously," and lit up as the audience reacted to a snap of Otis taking the train in NYC, saying, "Little subway baby - we don't care what diseases he gets." Jason and Ellen also had a hilarious conversation about the giant photo of her hanging above his bed, »
NBC has announced the next three hosts of Saturday Night Live for the month of December, and they’re mighty promising. James Franco will kick things off on December 6th with his third appearance as host, accompanied by musical guest Nicki Minaj. Franco is well-versed in SNL lore having directed the incredibly fascinating documentary Saturday Night, which provided a first-ever behind-the-scenes look at the weeklong process of making an episode. The actor will of course be promoting his upcoming comedy The Interview in which he stars opposite Seth Rogen, so a Rogen cameo on the episode seems likely. More after the jump. After Franco’s SNL appearance, Martin Freeman will make his hosting debut on December 13th in anticipation of the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and accompanied by musical guest Charli Xcx. Closing out the month just before the holidays, Amy Adams will host »

After finding success with a documentary series chronicling the 1960s, CNN is preparing a new one for 2015 that will examine the decade that followed.
The Time Warner outlet said it would produce an eight part documentary with Playtone and Herzog & Co. in association with HBO. The non-scripted series, “The Seventies,” will be executive produced by Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman as well as Mark Herzog of Herzog & Company, as an original series for CNN’s U.S. network.
The new series is expected to debut in the summer of 2015, CNN said.
The network said “The Seventies” would launch with a one-hour episode examining the era’s television programming and how it reflected new social currents. The episode will also chronicle the establishment of two big TV franchises: ABC’s “Monday Night Football”(now on Espn) and NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”
Subsequent one-hour episodes will delve into everything from the Vietnam War to Watergate. »

Few directors can be said to have changed the way films are made, but Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday at 83, was one of them. His first film, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), ended decades of Hollywood censorship of adult content and freed the movies for mature language and subject matter ever after. His second film, "The Graduate," was the first serious mainstream movie to feature a rock soundtrack (spawning Simon and Garfunkel's hit "Mrs. Robinson") and, through its casting of Dustin Hoffman, expanded Hollywood's notion of what a leading man ought to look and sound like.
Nichols wasn't born in America (he and his family escaped from Nazi Germany when he was a child), but he was one of the best chroniclers of contemporary America -- its politics, its aspirations, its dreams, its aristocracy, and its successes and failures -- in movies. His youth in Manhattan as the son »

Not every planned "SNL" sketch can make it to air, but this week one ousted skit feels like a seriously missed opportunity. Yes, we've seen Kate McKinnon as Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before, but in this sketch about an over-enthused Twitter user, her cameo feels pretty brilliant. Wish I could say the same for the sketch itself, but hey! That's why they canned it. Aidy Bryant's opening remarks about tweeting at 4 p.m. are hilarious though. »

"American Horror Story: Freak Show" won't be back on until after Thanksgiving, but tonight's episode didn't feel very filling.

When Dandy reveals that he read Dot's diary and that she secretly wants to get surgically separated from Bette, it's not too hard for Jimmy to convince them both to leave Dandy and his fancy caviar behind.
