Well if we can't get a cast reunion, at least there are moments like this! Matt LeBlanc stopped by The Graham Norton Show Friday night with fellow guests Kit Harington and Rebel Wilson. While the actor may have thought he was going to talk about his latest show Episodes, the conversation quickly turned to his beloved sitcom Friends. Norton admitted that he really enjoyed the musical moments in the long-running series including one scene when LeBlanc's character—Joey Tribbiani, duh!—performed in a musical about the life of Dr. Sigmund Freud. So what does the guest of honor decide to do? How does an impromptu performance sound to you? "I think it was right in the very »

Matt Le Blanc performs Joey Tribbiani's songs on Graham Norton Show

2 May 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Joey Tribbiani took some questionable jobs during his time acting in Friends. 'Mario who had Vd', 'Kevin the man who can't open milk' and who can forget 'Al Pacino's butt'.

But he also had a few musical numbers in his time on the show and now Matt Le Blanc has reminded us of them on The Graham Norton Show.

The first he performs is the song from the musical Freud! which the gang went to see him in back in Season 1's 'The One With The Butt'.

After a bit of nudging from Graham Norton, Le Blanc also remembers 'The Hand Song' which Joey improvises when he's trying to persuade his hand twin to work with him in Las Vegas.

Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman recently dismissed the idea of the gang reuniting, claiming the show to be centered around the time your friends are your family.

She added with the gang creating their own families, »

Watch: Matt LeBlanc Reprises ‘Friends’ Musical Moments on ‘Graham Norton Show’

2 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Friends” may have ended years ago, but it’s clear that Matt LeBlanc still has that Joey Tribbiani charm.

The “Episodes” star channeled his “Friends” character while visiting “The Graham Norton Show” and broke out into some of Joey’s old songs on the show.

Norton reminded LeBlanc of one early episode of “Friends” in which Joey stars in a musical based on the life of Dr. Sigmund Freud. While LeBlanc doesn’t perform the accompanying dance with the number from the musical, he does remember the tune and lyrics, sung with Freud’s Austrian accent.

LeBlanc also mentions an episode in the fifth season of the popular comedy where Joey finds his “hand twin” and thinks he’s struck gold.

“Joey meets a guy in the casino who’s his exact hand double, and he thinks he has struck it rich now. ‘Nasa’s gonna want to talk to us, »

Matt LeBlanc Still Remembers the Words to the Hand-Twin Song From Friends

1 May 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Matt LeBlanc does a real solid for Friends fans on the The Graham Norton Show. In addition to looking swole alongside Rebel Wilson and Kit Harington, he indulges Norton when the host asks him to sing some Joey classics, namely the hand-twin song and the little ditty from Freud! The Musical. LeBlanc has a surprisingly good memory, and is a pretty good sport about it. »

Carey Mulligan: 'I suffered concussion while filming Madding Crowd'

17 April 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Carey Mulligan has revealed that she was concussed for "about six weeks of filming" on Far From The Madding Crowd.

The actress fell from her horse while filming one of the movie's key scenes, and later "slumped over" during filming of another crucial scene with Matthias Schoenaerts.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show, she explained that the health and safety team on the film were concerned about the cast filming with sheep, but let her ride a horse.

"They let me ride a horse and I did have a concussion after coming off," said Mulligan. "I was genuinely concussed for about six weeks of the filming; there are parts I don't remember!

"When we shot the last scene of the film, I came racing round the corner and got thrown off and landed on my head. Ten minutes later, we were filming the big declaration scene and I just dropped to my knees. »

17 April 2015 4:33 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Amanda Holden has denied claims that her nipples are insured for £2 million.

She said: "Allegedly they are but, no, it's not true. They're not worth a fiver each – I've had two children!"

Meanwhile, Holden described Simon Cowell's recent prank on her as "absolutely horrendous". He managed to convince her that he was replacing her with Cheryl Fernandez Versini on the Got Talent live shows during Call or Delete with Nick Grimshaw.

"He was outrageous. I was in so much shock that for once in my life I was completely gobsmacked, very polite and very professional," said Holden.

"I didn't swear and I didn't slag off Cheryl... it could have been a career ender for me.

Tom Hardy on How ‘Sesame Street’ Helped Prepare Him for ‘Child 44′

16 April 2015 5:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Child 44″ thrilled and chilled London’s Leicester Square on Thursday evening, for its U.K. bow at Vue West End.

Set in Soviet Russia, the film’s serial killer stalkers Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace charmed the red carpet, in spite of their disappointment around “Child 44’s” abrupt Russian ban.

Rapace, a Swede who grew up in Iceland, said she didn’t find the Russian accent too tough to master: “I kind of melted into it and stopped thinking about it.”

Londoner Hardy found delivery of the Russian diction a more arduous task, however — with children’s television becoming his educator. He resorted to an accent masterclass led by a popular purple puppet: “I watched Sesame Street. The Count speaks just like it,” he quipped.

The bestseller’s author Tom Rob Smith was on home turf and joined his lead pair on the carpet to celebrate with fans. »
