Tonight, Jimmy Fallon officially launches the next wave for The Tonight Show when he kicks off his reign as host.

Ahead of this year’s BAFTAs, HeyUGuys had the privilege to catch up with the writer-director of Victor + Kelly Kieran Evans who is nominated for the Best British Debut BAFTA on Sunday the 16th February. It is a nomination he never expected, but one that he admits has put him a great position.
Whilst the purpose of our conversation was his BAFTA nomination, in speaking with Kieran I uncovered a compelling story of his journey towards his nomination for outstanding debut. Behind the BAFTA gold mask lies a story of a mother and her son’s love for cinema, their appreciation of cinematic magic, a filmmakers reverence for the craft of filmmaking, and the desire to create stories that have and will continue to take us out of our space.

For Jimmy Fallon's last waltz on "Late Night" before transitioning to "The Tonight Show," he was joined by some very special guests. The Muppets dropped by to join Fallon in a sweet, sincere rendering of The Band's seminal 1968 song "The Weight." Fallon plays drums and sings (Levon Helm-style), while Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Scooter and the rest of the gang take turns signing; Animal screams.

Martin Scorsese's latest movie The Wolf of Wall Street hits the big screen next week, and if you can look past the controversy you'll find a fast, funny and hugely entertaining look into the lives of some very bad men.

Martin Scorsese is riding a wave of critical acclaim for his new film The Wolf of Wall Street, but we're still not quite sure what's next for the director. While this is nowhere near confirmed, a new report reveals the filmmaker may be interested in making a One Direction movie.
The 71-year-old director made an uncredited appearance in Morgan Spurlock's concert documentary One Direction: This Is Us, and he was reportedly turned on to their music after his daughter Francesca gave him one of the British pop group's CDs. Here's what an unidentified insider had to say.
