On the Late Show: Talk Show Hosts in Movies

3 March 2009 6:35 AM, PST | | See recent IFC news »

This week, the world of late night television experiences its biggest shakeup in years, as Jimmy Fallon takes the reigns of NBC's "Late Night" from Conan O'Brien, who, at the start of June, will take over "The Tonight Show" from Jay Leno, who moves on to start his own talk show at 10pm. With talk show hosts on our minds these days, it seemed like a good time to look back and see how they've fared on the silver screen.

Qualifications for inclusion were simple: the talk show host in question has to be best known -- and most successful -- in their show business career as a talk show host. Craig Ferguson, current host of CBS' "Late Late Show," carved out a long and successful career as an actor and director of such films as "The Big Tease" before accepting the slot after David Letterman, so he was out. »

Jerry Goldsmith Redux

1 March 2009 8:07 PM, PST | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

The plot thickens: we're now told that Jerry Goldsmith's score for The Last Hard Men also incorporated some of his work from the 1965 spy movie Morituri! Graham Rye's letter regarding Jerry Goldsmith's score for 100 Rifles which was recycled for The Last Hard Men, has drawn a number of comments from readers, some of whom have shed some light on the mystery of why such a revered composer might want to use a previous score in a new movie:

Hi Lee

Well Graham is both correct and incorrect about the soundtrack for the above. The story of The Last Hard Men score is that a score by Leonard Rosenman was rejected and, whether due to time constraints or cost, Fox simply chose to track the movie with cues from three Jerry Goldsmith Fox westerns (100 Rifles, Rio Conchos and the remake of Stagecoach) and also his score for the thriller Morituri. »

19 January 2009 11:09 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Peter Sellers' portrayal of President Merkin Muffley in cult movie Dr. Strangelove has topped a new list of fictional and real-life U.S. leaders.

The only real-life leader to make the list is outgoing U.S. leader George W. Bush, as portrayed by Josh Brolin in W. He comes in at number 10.

The full list is:

1. Peter Sellers as President Merkin Muffley (Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb); 2. Harrison Ford as James Marshall (Air Force One); 3. Kevin Kline as William H. Mitchell (Dave); 4. John Travolta as Governor Jack Stanton (Primary Colors); 5. Michael Douglas as President Andrew Shepherd (The American President) »

16 January 2009 4:43 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't believe I have ever reported the nominees for the International Film Music Critics Association before, but in the spirit of covering more award season news than is probably necessary I figured, "What the hell?" The nominees listed below make up the fifth annual International Film Music Critics Association Awards for Excellence with Wall-e receiving the most nominations including Film Score of the Year, Best Score for an Animated Film, Best Film Composition (for "Define Dancing") and Composer of the Year for Thomas Newman.

Conan O'Brien's 'Tonight Show' Plans

15 January 2009 6:56 PM, PST | | See recent The Insider news »

When "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" premieres on June 1, the show will have a whole new look as well as a new host, but it will still have a sense of humor. At least it will if O'Brien has anything to do with it -- which he does. "Television is changing rapidly, and I want to make sure [the new 'Tonight Show'] isn't too buttoned up," O'Brien told reporters at the NBC Television Critics Association junket at the Universal Hilton. "I want to make sure it is funny and a worthy 'Tonight Show.'" That said, O'Brien is very much aware of the all the buzz about the changing of the guard, especially since NBC announced its plans for Jay Leno to have a one-hour nightly series at 10 p.m. "I think there has been speculation and uneasiness every time there has been a change in 'The Tonight Show' host," he explains.
