Adorable. Blue Ivy is photographed with her mother Beyonce. Both in super cute outfits. The two have ended a 132 show tour around the world. And our office is abuzz with oh-my-gosh’s and how-cute’s. Seriously, this family is adorable.
Juan Pablo Galavis from The Bachelor was booed and heckled in an Atlantic City club this weekend. Late Friday night Juan Pablo was scheduled to host at the Harrah’s Pool After Dark nightclub. During his appearance some people booed at him and even spilled drinks on him. What we aren’t told is it’s because he told them that he only “like liked” the audience and “couldn’t commit to something right now.”

In case you had forgotten, there are a bunch of singers on "How I Met Your Mother." Harris is especially known for roles in Broadway musicals, even if the role of Inspector Javert isn't in his official resume. It might as well be after dueling so well with Segel's Jean Valjean.
While the whole thing is both amazing and kind of ridiculous, the best part may come at the 1:20 mark when the two singers get so into their parts that Cobie Smulders has to get up and move. »
Lest nine seasons of the sitcom not be enough as “How I Met Your Mother” nears its swan song, the cast provided a few more laughs while visiting “Inside the Actors Studio,” thanks to Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel’s musical talents.
During the show, a fan asked Patrick Harris and Segel to sing “Les Miserables” duet “Confronation,” a bit they did in 2006 on “The Megan Mullally Show,” but were sadly cut short. Patrick Harris seized on the opportunity immediately, taking off as Javert, with Segel jumping in as Jean Valjean shortly after.
Fellow cast members Alyson Hannigan, Cobie Smulders and Josh Radnor looked on, along with the audience, as the two gave a perfect a cappella performance that earned a standing ovation. For other parts of the hour, the cast answered questions from James Lipton both in and out of character. The full episode can be seen here. »

We already have our tissues ready for the series finale of How I Met Your Mother on Monday, but this makes it a little easier to bear. The cast of the show got together for an episode of Inside the Actors Studio on Thursday, and when they did, it was … legendary. There were lots of laughs, but the best moment came when Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel performed an impromptu duet of "Confrontation" from the musical Les Miserables. It wasn't the first time the pair have sung the song together - the Les Mis fans previously performed a snippet »

The end of How I Met Your Mother has Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel in a Broadway state of mind. During an appearance on Bravo's Inside the Actors Studio, someone in the audience asked Harris and Segel to sing "The Confrontation" from Les Misérables, a musical the costars are known to love. As the Himym cast looked on, Harris and Segel belted out the song with gusto, not even missing a beat as they sang different parts. Watch the video below, and then check out an adorable moment Harris shared with his kids during the episode. Source: Bravo »

Maybe now that “How I Met Your Mother” is coming to an end, Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel can start a musical act together. The “Himym” co-stars burst into song during an appearance this week on “Inside the Actors Studio” ahead of the Monday finale of their CBS series. See video: ‘How I Met Your Mother's’ Alyson Hannigan Will Never See Her Sitcom Co-Stars Again Responding to a request from a studio-audience member, the pair belted out a spirited version of the Les Miserables song “The Confrontation” — a tune that the pair have occasionally sung together, after finding out. »

Someone needs to cast Neil Patrick Harris as Javert and Jason Segel as Jean Valjean immediately. Before the series finale of How I Met Your Mother, Harris and Segel appeared with their co-stars Alyson Hannigan, Josh Radnor and Cobie Smulders on Inside the Actors Studio. "Since Les Mis[érables] is coming back to Broadway, I thought maybe Jason and Neil might give us a little bit of the 'Confrontation,'" a student said to the actors. The duo first performed this number from the hit muscial on the Megan Mullaly Show back in 2006. "You haven't sung that in a long time!" Smulders quipped. After they quickly figured out who portrayed whom the first »
The cast of How I Met Your Mother is doing a lot of reminiscing leading up to Monday’s series finale. Some of it involves tears, but there is plenty of laughter, too. On Inside the Actors Studio, however, reflecting on nine seasons of sitcom magic includes talking about what turns Barney on — and it might not be what you expect.
Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, and Alyson Hannigan sat down with host James Lipton on Thursday’s episode, and per usual, the conversation started with the Bernard Pivot Questionnaire. The cast members answered as themselves, »

Marshall and Lily might be How I Met Your Mother's most doting onscreen parents, but Neil Patrick Harris just made a bid for most adorable offscreen dad. The cast appeared on the long-running Bravo show Inside the Actors Studio to discuss the impending series finale, but Harris had to take an unexpected phone call . . . from his ridiculously cute kids. He had told them he would video chat with them to say goodnight but didn't anticipate the call quite so early. So he did what any great dad would do: he took the call, had all his costars say hello, and showed them the audience. Obviously, this moment wins the entire episode. Source: Bravo »

It was poignant and funny, as each cast member chose his or her favorite scene in the history of the show -- "Suits" (Nph), the two-minute date (Radnor), the bangity-bang song (Smulders), Marshall's father's death (Hannigan) and the cock-a-mouse (Segel), in case you were wondering -- but the highlight was the actors showing off their talents by answering questions off-the-cuff in character. The best bon mots:
Lipton: "Your friend Ted has described you as a sociopath, is that true?"
Barney: "What does 'sociopath' mean again?"
Ted: "Well, it's interesting because the derivation, it changed around 1863 -- [raucous laughter and applause]."
Lipton: "What is the Playbook?"
Barney: "That was a book in my days, back in my young (awesome!) days where I had different ways to get dirty. That »
Think you’ve seen Kit Harington naked thanks to that Game of Thrones scene in that rock pool? In a GQ profile, Harrington admits that scene featured a butt double. “I had a broken ankle… so the only time you saw my ass, it wasn’t my ass.” Instead a crew member with curly black hair and a great backside was asked to get a haircut to match Harrington and fill in.
The abs are definitely real, tho.

What does Ted Mosby really think of his friends?
In the episode, airing on Bravo at 8 p.m. Et/Pt, Lipton asks the actors to channel their characters for a portion of the chat and the segment yields some pretty hilarious results. Watch it below: »

"Inside the Actors Studio" takes a bunch of hopeful young students and exposes them to the biggest names in Hollywood. Do any of them ever make it? Despite Louis C.K.'s opinion that they don't, Bradley Cooper has proven him wrong.
And there is a video -- beautifully edited to include a smackdown from "American Hustle" -- to prove it.
In a 2008 radio interview between Louis C.K. and Stephen Merchant, the comedian pointed out that those eager students asking questions of luminaries like Sean Penn are never seen again. He talks about how he just wants to tell the young hopefuls to give up now.
It's a good thing he never said that to a young Cooper back in 1999. When Penn paused to answer questions from the audience, Cooper comes up with a question about reprising an earlier role.
Fast-forward 15 years and Cooper is a huge movie star, a regular »
Louis Ck is known for telling the truth. Even if it’s painful or offensive, Louis Ck will tell people how it is. Now, a recently discovered interview shoves that idea in his face thanks to Ck’s American Hustle nemesis, Bradley Cooper. To explain, in an old interview Ck did with fellow comedian, writer and actor […]

Louis C.K.’s got some pretty strong feelings about Bravo’s Inside the Actors Studio and the probability of students who ask questions actually making it in the industry, as the comic actor made very clear in a 2009 radio interview.
Well, the joke’s on C.K. this time around. As it turns out, his fellow American Hustle star, Bradley Cooper, once appeared on Inside the Actors Studio as a second-year acting student — and asked a question of the very actor Louis C.K. brings up in the interview.
Watch the beautifully edited irony for yourself below: »

In a bizarre turn of events, actor Bradley Cooper has shot down the assertion from comedian Louis Ck that aspiring drama students in the audience of TV show Inside the Actors Studio will "never be famous".
Speaking to Stephen Merchant in 2009, Louis Ck declared: "When an actor stands up and asks Sean Penn or whoever, 'What can I do to reach your level?' - that's it, you will never be famous. There's no way you can ask Sean Penn a question and then you're gonna become huge. No."
Except a video of Bradley Cooper posing a question from the show's audience in 1999 shows that Louis Ck couldn't be more wrong. And in a real twist of fate Cooper's firing his question at... Sean Penn.
Ok, this connection between Bradley Cooper and Louis Ck will blow your mind. An eagle-eyed fan found a way to completely derail one of Louis's bits about Inside the Actors Studio. Back in 2009, Louis joked about the up-and-coming thespians who ask celebrities questions during the show, saying that they would never reach the same level as some of the stars on the show. "There's no way you're going to ask Sean Penn a question and then you're going to be huge," Louis joked. Well, guess who was the guy who asked Sean a question back in 1999? Watch the clip above, and don't forget to vote for Bradley in our March Man-ness poll. (Sorry, Louis, you're not in the running.) Front Page Image Source: Getty / Gregg DeGuire »
