Star Sightings: Stephen Colbert Talks Louis C.K. With Samantha Bee, Gwen Stefani Performs in Dubai & More!

Though Louis C.K.'s transgressions were widely considered the worst kept secret in the comedy world, to some, it really was a secret.

Stephen Colbert welcomed Samantha Bee to the stage at Njpac in Newark, New Jersey, on Dec. 6, where she was the special guest on Sad! A Happy Evening with Stephen Colbert & Samantha Bee, a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival.

During their hour-and-a-half-long chat, the longtime friends talked everything from dealing with politics (specifically President Donald Trump's tumultuous first-year in office) during their late night monologues -- Colbert hosts The Late Show on CBS while Bee is the face of Full Frontal on TBS -- as well as the seismic shift in culture surrounding sexual harassment since the Harvey Weinstein allegations came to light.

Colbert was supposed to have C.K. on his show the week the New York Times published its report on his sexual misconduct, and the 53-year-old comedian was planning on using an

Netflix Didn’t Completely Quit Kevin Spacey and Louis C.K., As Streamers Keep Accused Assaulters’ Old Shows
Days after Netflix fired Kevin Spacey from “House of Cards” and canceled an upcoming Louis C.K. standup special, both disgraced stars can still be found on the streaming service.

Five pre-existing Louis C.K. comedy specials, including this spring’s “Louis C.K. 2017,” continue to live on the site, available for viewing.

Meanwhile, four projects still pop up when searching for Spacey’s name, including “House of Cards” and the documentary “Now: In the Wings on a World Stage,” a behind the scenes look at Spacey starring in the Bridge Project production of “Richard III.”

That’s not to say that the streaming service isn’t taking a hit: Netflix scrapped plans to release the Spacey starrer “Gore,” a Gore Vidal biopic that had already finished shooting. And it may have to start over on Season 6 of “House of Cards,” with Robin Wright now as star, even though that show had already been shooting.

Ben Affleck is perhaps Hollywood’s biggest and most diverse superstar

As big a star as Ben Affleck is, I’m sure he gets the credit that he deserves. Not only is he an A-list Hollywood talent, he’s an acclaimed and award winning filmmaker. Affleck is part of superhero blockbusters, prestige fare, and everything in between. Throw in his charity work and you have a dynamic star. For a while, he was seen as a bit of a punching bag, but another Oscar and some very solid choices later, that decidedly is no longer the case. He’s rightfully taken his place as one of the industry’s biggest names. I just don’t think he’s always seen in that light, which is a shame. Affleck is a two time Academy Award winner, taking home an Oscar early in his career for co-writing Good Will Hunting with Matt Damon, then winning one a few years ago for producing his latest directional outing Argo.

Ben Affleck Credits Jennifer Garner With Career Revival, Won't Co-Star With Her Again

Ben Affleck Credits Jennifer Garner With Career Revival, Won't Co-Star With Her Again
While Ben Affleck loves his wife Jennifer Garner, he revealed that he doesn't think he should act alongside her ever again.

In an interview with Loaded magazine, the 42-year-old Gone Girl star says that it was Garner's love and support that is responsible for his career turnaround, but that he doesn't think audiences want to see them co-star in a movie any time soon.

"My wife and I made Pearl Harbor and Daredevil," Affleck joked. "With our track record, I don't know if anyone's looking for a three-quel."

As a matter of fact, Affleck hasn't had a great track record co-starring alongside any actress he's involved with. In the Oscar-winner's biggest critical and commercial flop, the 2003 romantic comedy Gigli, he appeared opposite Jennifer Lopez, who he began dating during filming.

And just three years prior, Affleck starred in the poorly-received 2000 romantic drama Bounce with his

Ben Affleck Facts: 31 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the 'Gone Girl' Star

Ben Affleck has been tough to miss these past 20 years, and he's not slowing down anytime soon.

Since having early success as a child star in the '80s, Affleck reinvented himself alongside lifelong friend Matt Damon in "Good Will Hunting" (1997), not only starring in the film, but also winning an Oscar as co-screenwriter. After the life-changing experience, the young actor found offers piling in and soon starred in blockbusters like "Armageddon" (1998) and "Daredevil" (2001), just to name a couple. The actor has since found his stride as a director, but this fall, he's back in front of the camera in David Fincher's critically-acclaimed thriller "Gone Girl."

From his unlikely early roles to his family connection to Joaquin Phoenix, here are 31 things you probably don't know about Ben Affleck.

1. Ben Affleck was born Benjamin Géza Affleck-Boldt on August 15, 1972 in Berkeley, California, to Chris Boldt and Timothy Affleck.

  • Deadline
Universal’s making room for Alex Kurtzman and his Secret Hideout shingle.

David Fincher Explains His Gone Girl Casting Choice

Say what you will about Ben Affleck and his hitherto patchy career – I’m a fan, regardless. You cannot help but admire an actor who goes unabashedly and unapologetically full throttle on every role he takes – even when it is the lead in Gigli. I’m also a big fan of David Fincher, and of quality drama, so it’s safe to say my anticipation level for Gone Girl is reaching fever pitch. The film is based on the bestselling book of the same name by Gillian Flynn, and interestingly, Flynn herself adapted the screenplay. Co-starring Rosamund Pike (The World’s End), Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) and Tyler Perry (Star Trek), it tells the story of a man thrust into the centre of an intense media circus after the disappearance of his wife places him under suspicion for her murder.

Affleck: Only Film I Regret? "Daredevil"

He may be an acclaimed filmmaker, but even Ben Affleck himself would tell you he's starred in a few flops in his time. From forgettable rom-coms like "Bounce," "Jersey Girl" and "Forces of Nature," to action and horror duds like "Reindeer Games" and "Phantoms", and of course - "Gigli".

Yet in an interview with Playboy, Affleck says that while he'd "probably have two or three" roles he regrets, it's only one failure that still really haunts him - the Marvel superhero film "Daredevil":

"The only movie I actually regret is Daredevil. It just kills me. I love that story, that character, and the fact that it got fucked up the way it did stays with me. Maybe that’s part of the motivation to do Batman."

In fact it's because of Daredevil's failure that he understands the online backlash against him playing Batman:

"I understand I’m at a disadvantage with the internet.

The underappreciated movies of Ben Affleck

Odd List Simon Brew 22 Nov 2013 - 06:34

Ben Affleck's enjoyed a career resurgence as well as internet ire of late. Here's a look at a few of his underappreciated films...

Ben Affleck doesn't need us. He's got a directorial career of three strong movies from three outings. He has a movie star spouse. He has two Oscars, one for both his downstairs and upstairs toilet, and he gets to tell his kids that he's Batman without having to lie. Furthermore, it's scary to think how good the boxset of his directorial work is going to be in 30 years' time.

But the resurgence of the Affleck, culminating in his Best Picture winning movie Argo, and his casting as Batman in Batman Vs Superman, overlooks the fact that his CV is hardly short of really good films, really good choices, and some really good performances. Whilst most of the press he's

Argo shows Ben Affleck's got good taste

The best day of the Good Will Hunting star's acting career was the day it died; it made him go off and become more interesting

Oh, we've had our ups and downs, me and Ben Affleck, over the years. Time was, back in his not-so halcyon tabloid years, during his tenure as garcon-du-jour with Aniston, Lopez etc, and as a succession of blockbuster flops tore the bark off his fame, I found myself rooting wholeheartedly for the total extirpation of his career. I groaned through Pearl Harbor, head in hands, wishing I could actually slap the screen. I spent Armageddon tightly clutching my thrice-filled and overflowing barf-bag, and during The Sum Of All Fears, when we saw the city of Baltimore nuked to ashes, I wanted to scream at the screen, as I relished Affleck's failure to save America. "In your face, Jack Ryan!"

But then there was other evidence,
