Best of Late Night TV: Julia Roberts' Face Balls and Chris Pratt's Taxidermy (Video)

16 hours ago | 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.

First up is America's resident sweetheart, Julia Roberts, who dropped by "The Tonight Show" to play Face Balls with Jimmy Fallon. That's right, Face Balls, a brand-new "Tonight Show" game in which Julia and Jimmy hit giant plastic balls into each other's faces while the entire thing was caught on super-slow HD camera. As Julia put it, "this is the comedy version of '50 Shades of Grey.'"

Julia also confronted a famous Reddit dog who's completely terrified of her face, and yelled at him on camera. She might be a sweetheart, but watch your backs, puppies of the USA.

Bravo's head honcho, Andy Cohen, stopped by "The Tonight Show, »

James Franco Tries Penetrating Stephen Colbert's Political Facade (Video)

31 July 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Since CBS announced Stephen Colbert will inherit “The Late Show” from David Letterman,  the talk-show host has been saddled with questions about whether he plans to drop the right-wing political shtick he's famous for on Comedy Central. James Franco tried untangling that enigma on Wednesday's episode of “The Colbert Report,” but he didn't get far. As their interview about Franco's “Child of God” wound down, Colbert attempted cutting to commercial — but Franco stopped him.

James Franco Tries, Fails to Get Stephen Colbert to Break Character

31 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It was a battle of character actors on The Colbert Report Wednesday night when James Franco tried to get host Stephen Colbert to slip out of his beloved flag-waving, gut-following alter ego by asking the host about his upcoming move to The Late Show.

Top 20 TV Moments of 2013: Stephen Colbert Gets Lucky

On hand to discuss his new film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's Child of God, Franco was charming as ever — even when discussing the serial killer and necrophiliac at the center of his film — and before Colbert could go to commercial, »

James Franco Tried to Get Stephen Colbert to Break Character; It Didn’t Work

31 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It can be argued that James Franco is never more likable than he is on The Colbert Report. Last night was no exception. The best part came at the end of his interview, when Franco asked Colbert about his upcoming move to The Late Show. However, Colbert the character isn't the one moving. Colbert's response is just another example of why we'll miss Colbert the character so much. »

Best of Late Night TV: Zoe Saldana's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Makeup, Heidi Klum Rolls With Jimmy Fallon (Video)

31 July 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | 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.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" star Zoe Saldana stopped by "The Late Show," where she chatted with host David Letterman about her penchant for playing oddly-colored characters on the big screen. But while her blue skin tone was digitally added in "Avatar," Saldana said Gamora's green hue was "old school," and took five hours in a makeup chair to achieve -- with some nasty results. "The things that were coming out of my nose, my mouth, my...." she trailed off, to the audience's delight. "There was green everywhere."

Saldana and Letterman also discussed the merits of 3D, and while the host loved the use of the technology on "Guardians," the »

Jay Carney Teaches David Letterman How to Deal With the Press (Video)

30 July 2014 5:04 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Now that he's left the White House, former Obama press secretary Jay Carney is opening up about his time there. On Wednesday, he tells David Letterman on “The Late Show” of the myriad of ways he declined to answer certain questions (see video above). There's the standard “no comment,” though he says he tried to make it more of a complete sentence. “I don't have the answer” and “I would refer you to someone else” are others, though Carney thinks just saying “I don't know” is the smartest answer for when you genuinely don't know.

How CBS Scored Stephen Colbert's 'Late Show' a $16 Million Tax Break

30 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

A version of this article first appeared in the Aug. 8 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Like most networks and studios, CBS reaps millions of dollars in tax breaks from New York State each year that help lure TV and movie shoots. But the network seems to have broken new ground with a $16 million package revealed July 23 for The Late Show -- which already calls New York's theater district home -- when Stephen Colbert takes over as host in 2015. When Colbert was hired, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo approached CBS chief Leslie Moonves to see what it would

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Clip Tells the Legend of 'Footloose'

29 July 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Guardians of the Galaxy is shaping up to be one of the biggest movies this summer, and with anticipation growing by the day, we have a brand new clip featuring Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana). A child of the 80s, before he was taken from Earth by Yondu (Michael Rooker), Star-Lord makes a number of 80s references throughout the movie, including this scene where he tries to coerce Gamora into dancing with him. When she reveals that she is a warrior and an assassin who does not dance, Star-Lord tells her the legend of Kevin Bacon's Footloose, although this seduction technique does not go as smoothly as planned.

In addition, John C. Reilly brought another "clip" to the Late Show with David Letterman, although it isn't quite what you might expect. We also have two more set photos from director James Gunn's Instagram account, one with »

Best of Late Night TV: Bachelorette Andi Plays the No-ly Wed Game, James Franco's Selfie Tutorial (Video)

29 July 2014 1:27 AM, PDT | 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.

Bachelorette Andi Dorfman stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" with her new fiance, Josh Murray, after getting engaged on the season finale of "The Bachelorette," which aired Monday night. Host Jimmy Kimmel couldn't help having a bit of fun with the pair, playing a round of what he dubbed The No-ly Wed Game to find out just how well the new couple knew each other. The duo did fairly well, though both claimed that Murray was still a virgin, because as Dorfman put it, "My grandmother watches this."

Week in Review: Support a documentary on a Nic Cage Superman movie

25 July 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Week in Review rounds up the best of the rest of film and TV news hitting the web this week. Check out the rest of the Sos Blog for more news updates. 

Unless your name is Edgar Wright, it’s hard to imagine a superhero movie of any caliber and pedigree not somehow getting made in today’s day and age.

And yet in 1997, that’s exactly what happened. Tim Burton, many years after the success of his original Batman, was attached to direct Superman Lives, originally starring none other than Nicolas Cage as everyone’s favorite Kryptonian and adapted from a screenplay by Kevin Smith.

Just how in God’s green Earth did this brilliant, strange mash-up of talents in a movie never come to light is the question behind a documentary currently in production, The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? 

The film is being directed by Jon Schnepp, »

Best of Late Night TV: Audra McDonald Sings Yahoo! Answers, Robin Wright Dances, Conan's 'Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda' Cameo

24 July 2014 1:40 AM, PDT | 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.

An audience member asking to hear a professional singer perform queries from Yahoo! Answers inspired this bit on "The Tonight Show," where Tony winner Audra McDonald was joined by actor Josh Charles and host Jimmy Fallon to sing real questions and answers from the site. Some of the questions were fairly straightforward -- "How can I be the life of the party?" -- while others were...less than intelligent. (The person worrying about how to dislodge a swallowed ice cube may need to seek professional help.) Our fingers are crossed that this concept is added to Fallon's regular rotation of quirky recurring gags.

Stephen Colbert’s Late Show Will Remain in New York

23 July 2014 8:25 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Governor Cuomo and CBS announced Wednesday that The Late Show will continue to be shot at New York's Ed Sullivan Theater, its home of 21 years, when David Letterman retires and Stephen Colbert takes over in 2015. While it had been assumed that the show would be staying put, CBS only made it official today, announcing that it had received $11 million in state tax credits and $5 million in renovation money for the theater in exchange for staying in NYC and guaranteeing the continuation of 200 jobs surrounding the show's production. While the dates for the transition remain unclear, the New York Times reports that Letterman is expected to step down next May, with Colbert starting things up again in September following a summer hiatus. »

Bless Ricky Gervais and his cynical heart.

White House Bypassed Obama ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Appearance Because of ‘More Serious Matters’

22 July 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said that President Obama and his staff chose not to do an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday because of “more serious matters the president is dealing with on the international scene.”

TMZ reported on Monday that Obama would do a segment for the show during a trek to Los Angeles, in which he also will attend two fundraisers and speak on job training at a technical college. But ABC and Kimmel’s reps quickly denied such a booking.

Yet Earnest confirmed at the White House daily briefing that they “had been in touch with representatives from Mr. Kimmel’s show about the possibility of participating, of having the president participating, on this trip.”

“We ultimately elected not to have the president do that interview over the course of this trip, and that is at least in part related to the challenges of doing »

Best of Late Night TV: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Cast Takes Over Kimmel, Kate Hudson Plays Box of Lies (Video)

22 July 2014 1:19 AM, PDT | 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.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" was back with a bang following a two-week hiatus, hosting the cast of "Guardians of the Galaxy." Chris Pratt, who plays Guardians leader Peter Quill, dominated the conversation, discussing his weight loss regimen ("vomiting, Zumba, and Shake Weight") and how much fun it was to shoot the film. The actor noted that he was "truly playing every day. I had a laser gun and a spaceship." But that playing came at a price, as Pratt admitted that he got so swept away shooting his fake gun that he couldn't help but making shooting noises with his mouth -- to the ire of the film crew.
