Bet You Didn’t Know Michael Fassbender is Really Good at Breakdancing

If there’s a late night talk show you need to be watching that doesn’t air here in the U.S. it’s undoubtedly the Graham Norton show. You might recall that Norton tried to duplicate his British success here in the states with The Graham Norton Effect which never really panned out. But his show in England is huge. Norton gets the same caliber celebrities as our talk show hosts here and he also gets them into a solid group together so the format’s a bit different and pretty refreshing. It’s cool to see different celebrities all sitting on the same couch

All you have to do is say “Shawshank Redemption” and “Morgan Freeman” and I’m all ears. So when I saw a clip of Morgan Freeman on the Graham Norton show with him actually doing some of Red from Shawshank Redemption, I knew instantly it was going up on this site.

You might remember the name “Graham Norton” because he had a short lived show here called The Graham Norton Effect. While that show didn’t make it here, he’s still very big over in England where he hosts “The Graham Norton Show.” And as you’ll see he gets A-list talent on his show all the time. The show, hosted on BBC has some moments that

10 Movies That Could Have Been Truly Awesome (With A Single Change)

Dreamworks Pictures

The domino effect. The greenhouse effect. The Graham Norton Effect. We live in a world of action and reaction, where simple operations lead to complex outcomes. No human endeavor is exclusive to the laws of nature, not even cinema. As with compounds, movies are defined by a combination of elements. Change one thing, and you have a completely different movie. A choice of direction, a casting decision, or a simple joke can all affect a film’s legacy. Just ask the internet.

The internet is credited with all manner of social phenomena, from uprisings to addictions. What it’s best at, though, is pointing out the flaws in movies. Like monkeys combing for insects, the wired generation can find something wrong with any movie, even a good one. It’s a natural extension of our desire to understand how things work.

During a visit to the BBC’s The Graham Norton Effect to promote the new father-son film After Earth, Jaden Smith joined dad Will to perform the iconic, titular theme song from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Bringing the performance full circle, the former Fresh Prince also brought along his original sidekick, DJ Jazzy Jeff — and, later on, Fresh Prince co-star Alfonso Ribeiro (better known as Carlton Banks) to do his signature dance to a cover of Tom Jones's "It's Not Unusual."

After all, we already knew that the Brits very much enjoy The Fresh Prince, probably because they are human.
