For those who want to see Bradley Cooper turn into a big ol' softie, you've come to the right place. In this exclusive clip from Inside the Actors Studio 250th episode special (airing May 29 on Bravo). The Hangover star gets a touch emotional while talking to James Lipton about his career and how much the Actors Studio means to the industry. "It's an honor to be here. And quite frankly, to be with you here," Cooper says in the sneak peek. "You've achieved quite a thing with this show and this master class." And then he starts talking about his father, and that's when Lipton and Cooper start getting all misty-eyed. Is there a new bromance developing? If so, we totally ship »
There's a montage in "The Hangover Part III" -- a retrospective, if you will -- of the Wolfpack "through the years." While watching images from all three "Hangover" movies flash across the screen, it's hard not to think about Bradley Cooper's own journey since the first film debuted in 2009. In four short years, Cooper has transformed himself from wiseacre Phil Wenneck to an Academy Award-nominated actor -- a transformation so thorough, it's actually a little odd watching him play Wenneck again.
Cooper called after a long day of press events (that were held in Las Vegas, so your guess is as good as mine as to the amount of sleep he was running on). He discussed the end of the "Hangover" series, his relationship with David O. Russell, and the reasons behind his abrupt departure from the troubled Western "Jane Got a Gun." Cooper also talked about a recent meeting with Sean Penn (yes, »

With Oscar-winning style, the actor blames his co-stars for the cinematic catastrophe Run For Your Wife
Danny, you will recall, took top billing in the Vicki Michelle-produced cinematic work, a Britflick of such radioactive awfulness that it took a mere £747 at the box office. "Rarely has a film aimed so low and missed its target so woefully," was the verdict of one reviewer, who had presumably also seen Mad Cows and Sex Lives of the Potato Men. "Perhaps never in the field of light entertainment have so many actors sacrificed so much dignity in the cause of so few jokes," ran another.
Lost in Showbiz had been wondering how Danny's agent would advise him to treat the opus should he find himself in the company of an interviewer. »

Bravo may have a new corporate supervisor at NBCUniversal, but the popular cabler’s programming tone looks to remain intact.
Known best, perhaps, for its unscripted programs centered on outsize and madcap personalities, Bravo expects to air 35 original series over the next programming year, including several docuseries. Bravo will develop a few scripted programs as well, executives from the network said during a Tuesday presentation to the media.
Bravo said the slate for the coming season features the largest number of original programs to date, up 15% on 2012. The network has found success by mining an audience of what it calls “affluencers” – high-income, highly-educated viewers in their 30s and 40s who are passionate about adult leisuretime activities, including food, fashion, beauty, design and popular culture. Executives said the network has seen its ratings among adults 18 to 49 rise 5% and its ratings among adults 25 to 54 rise 7%, per Nielsen, year to date.

Bravo may have a new corporate supervisor at NBC Universal, but the popular cabler’s programming tone looks to remain intact.
Known best, perhaps, for its unscripted programs centered on outsize and madcap personalities, Bravo expects to air 35 different original series over the next programming year, several of them falling under the “docuseries” category. Bravo will develop a few scripted programs as well, executives from the network said during a Tuesday presentation to the media.

Like a whole heck of a lot of people, I love Tina Fey. I love her so much, in fact, that I’m going to see Admission this weekend even though the movie doesn’t personally appeal to me. Fey is one of the few people on my list of stars that I’ll go to see in absolutely anything. Happily, Fey’s Admission co-star, World’s Most Likable Person Paul Rudd, also makes that list. Regardless of the story, I simply like watching the two of them onscreen together.

Tina Fey was the guest of honor for last night's Inside The Actors Studio installment, and in addition to talking about her time on Saturday Night Live, creating 30 Rock and making Baby Mama, James Lipton convinced the Emmy winner to reprise her impression of Sarah Palin!
Proving once again what a brilliant improviser she is, Fey riffs on gay marriage, her "celebrity style" and being a maverick at large during the can't miss 4 minute clip! Watch!
When Tina Fey recently went to visit "Inside the Actors Studio," it wasn't the "Admission" star that James Lipton wanted to interview, but rather her impression of former Governor Sarah Palin. Being the good sport that she is, Fey agreed to go along with Lipton's game and gave her best portrayal of the character she created for the 2008 presidential election.
When Lipton asks her what he should call Palin since she never completed her term as governor, Fey improvizes, "I don't know. You could call me a half-Governor or you could call me a Maverick At Large. 'Gov' would be fine by me too."
As for her views on gun laws, Fey-Palin quips, "You know Jimmy, I believe if everybody had guns, there would be fewer guns in the stores." Truer words have never been spoken.
Another highlight from the interview came when Lipton asked Fey's impression of Palin what »
Dear James Lipton: Please never stop asking your guests to answer questions in character, especially if they have a background in improv comedy. (And especially especially if they’re voice actors.)
The dignified host of Bravo’s Inside the Actors Studio asked guest Tina Fey to revive her famous Sarah Palin impression when she stopped by his show earlier this week. Thankfully, Fey obliged, slipping into her winky take on the ex-governor like it was a warm, comfy elk skin coat. What followed was a too-short sequence that allowed Fey to show off both her best-known impersonation and her quick thinking. »

Before Tina Fey could reveal her favorite swear word or what she hopes God says to her when she arrives at the pearly gates, James Lipton had a special request. "Would you allow me to interview Sarah Palin, please?" the Inside the Actors Studio host asked during their sit-down for the Bravo series, hoping to draw out Fey's famed impression of the former governor of Alaska, whom she mined for comedic gold during the 2008 presidential election. "We can try," Fey—still herself—agreed, taking a sip of water. Asked what the right term of address would be since she only served a partial term as governor, Fey-as-Palin replied with those familiar inflections, "Well, I'll »
James Lipton, the long-time host of Inside the Actors Studio, often asks his guests if he can interview them as one of their most famous characters. So when he invited Tina Fey onto the show last night, it was a not-so-surprising delight that he asked her if he could speak to Sarah Palin for a few moments. Fey happily obliged, showing off her sharp improv skills by answering questions as Palin and offering unique insight on some of the biggest issues facing the country. »

Years at Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock had given Tina Fey perfect fodder for James Lipton to crown her "the smartest guest" he's ever had. Here's a quick and dirty rundown of what we learned from Tina Fey on Inside the Actors Studio last night: 1. Tina can do a hilarious Lorne Michaels impression. 2. Women should always have a bra on hand. Don't be that braless staffer on 30 Rock. "Even if you feel like you don't need it, just have it." 3. No one respects a person who eats Lean Cuisines. It'll catapult you into a no-man's-land of "weak" women. Cheesy Blasters, on the other hand ... 4. It's okay to cry at work. "It often scares the shit out of people." 5. It was Lorne Michaels's doorman who pointed out Fey's likeness to Sarah Palin. 6. Tina Fey can still do a damn good Sarah Palin »

Must be "really troubled teens" week.
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas told E!'s Kristin Dos Santos that Max Greenfield is eager to make Deputy Leo a part of the upcoming movie, "Max is driving a hard bargain to reprise his role as Deputy Leo. His direct quote was that he'd take no pay and fly himself to set." Even better, Thomas says he'd be willing to make a new season of Veronica Mars for Netflix if the streaming service asked.
Following the reaction over The Bible's Satan resembling President Obama, Towleroad points out that the miniseries' advisers include several anti-gay voices.
Girls is one of many shows where I struggle to make it through an episode because the characters are so infuriating (see also: Lee Adama, Amy Jellicoe, Will Schuester, Ted Mosby and the teenage characters »

After much debate, we are having a liveblog of Days of Our Lives today, with a confrontation between Nick and Will.
It only began yesterday, a grand experiment to raise $2 million via Kickstarter for a Veronica Mars movie, but the project has already reached that goal, with 29 days remaining, and an average contribution of $63.
Of course the big news yesterday was the choice of Pope Francis. As Archbishop in Buenos Aries, he opposed the country implementing gay marriage, is anti-contraception, and generally just as bad as the last pope, with perhaps an exception for caring for the poor. As for gays, and equality, he said "Let's not be naive, we're not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God. »
