During his stint on CBS’ “The Late Late Show,” Craig Ferguson has been known to joke that only a handful of people are watching, and that the folks from his network are not among them. Yet many TV executives are starting to give the wee hours of the morn another look.
In October, Comedy Central launched the Chris Hardwick-hosted program “@Midnight,” which has been picked up for 2014 to run on the same production schedule as the net’s popular “Daily Show” and “Colbert Report,” extending its latenight block past the witching hour. TBS has been testing a new midnight talkshow featuring Pete Holmes, following Conan O’Brien.
NBCUniversal’s USA Network, too, has been exploring the time period, according to people familiar with the situation, though the cabler has no imminent plans, and it remains unclear whether its show would air before or after the clock strikes midnight.

Patrick J. Adams will be doing his adorable blinking routine on Orphan Black, according to Deadline. At least, I hope his guest role will include that thing he does on Suits where he blinks and looks just adorable. Even better, Adams previously tweeted that he was a fan of the show. I hope he enjoys his chance to get to play someone drawn into the Orphans’ orbit.
Which clone do you want to see him encounter? I can’t decide.
Today seems to be the day for amazing guest-role casting announcements. TVLine reports »

Kyle Dunnigan is hilarious. You should read this interview so that you can pretend you already knew about him because, at this point, you really should. Best known from his work on the television series and movie Reno 911! , Dunnigan is a prolific and sidesplitting standup with numerous appearances on Conan, Kimmel, Leno and Ferguson. He now writes and performs on Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer. Dunnigan also co-hosts the popular podcast, Professor Blastoff, with comedians Tig Notaro and David Huntsberger and his YouTube channel is followed by millions. »
The Hollywood Reporter says that Jason Momoa--who played the fierce warrior Khal Drogo in the Game of Thrones, as well as starring in the Conan remake--is in negotiations to appear in the Man of Steel sequel.
Is another hero being added to the super-powered cast of characters in Zack Snyder’s unofficially titled Batman vs. Superman film? Possibly. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Jason Mamoa—who starred in the 2011 remake of Conan, as well as playing the formidable Dothraki warrior chief Khal Drogo in the first season of HBO’s A Game of Thrones—is negotiating with the producers of the Man of Steel sequel to appear in the film.
Who will Momoa be playing in the film? There’s nothing official yet but some rumors are circling around that he may be taking on the role of longtime Justice League member J’onn J’on’zz the Martian Mahunter. »

There were some delightful moments during Snoop's appearance on "Conan" Monday (Dec. 9), including the above video where the rapper gives host Conan O'Brien a vaporizer and says his favorite scent to vaporize is "kush," which is a strain of marijuana. Surprising, right?
Here are some other highlights:
Snoop says he was recently given a star on the Russian version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. There are only three stars so far -- Snoop, Sylvester Stallone and Paris Hilton, which is hilarious. That's some good company right there.
The new name change is "Snoopzilla," and he's there to promote "7 Days of Funk," a new studio album with Snoop and Dam-Funk. It's out Tuesday (Dec. 10). Snoop also has a new company, Dog for Dog, which donates bags of dog food to shelters when you buy their dog food. It's a way to help keep dogs alive in shelters that have trouble feeding them all. »

It looks like "Game of Thrones" former Khal Drogo, actor Jason Momoa, is in talks for a part in Warner Bros.’ untitled Batman-Superman movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It is not clear which character Momoa would be playing in the Zack Snyder-directed film, but rumors suggest the role is DC Comics supervillain Doomsday or the Martian Manhunter according to THR. If he is inked, Momoa would join Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot. Momoa also starred in Lionsgate’s “Conan” reboot. »

Although these days Jason Momoa is known more for his role as Conan in the ill-fated “Conan the Barbarian” reboot and on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” as marauding king of the plains Khal Drogo, I still like to think of him more as roguish good guy Ronon Dex on “Stargate: Atlantis”. Either that, or as Jason Ioane on “Baywatch”. Anyways. It looks like Momoa is about to put those muscles to good use, with Variety reporting that the actor is currently “in talks for a part in Warner Bros. untitled Batman-Superman movie”. Now the first thing you have to consider is this: it’s probably not going to be some minor role, since after “Conan” and “Game of Thrones”, Momoa has a bit of a name. And since he’s played a villain before (“Bullet to the Head”, and I guess to an extent his Khal Drogo can be »
Briefly: We don’t know who he’ll play (Doomsday might be a safe bet) but Jason Momoa (Conan, Game of Thrones) is in talks to join the cast of Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman. He joins Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman and the most recent addition Gal Godot as Wonder Woman. With that roster of three heroes, and the […] »

Gadzooks! This is some interesting news! Jason Momoa (Game Of Thrones, Conan) is in talks for a role in Batman Vs Superman. What role is it? They did not specify. The movie as a whole is locked down pretty tight. So far we've got Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) but who else are we missing? One name I'm going to immediately throw off the list is Lex Luthor. The next possibility brought up by The Hollywood Reporter who delivered the scoop is »

We still don’t know the actual title of the film yet, but we do know who might be popping up in some capacity. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Conan’s Jason Momoa is in negotiations to star in the Man Of Steel follow-up, which will find Henry Cavill’s Superman sharing the screen with Ben Affleck’s Batman.Who's Momoa playing? Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder are playing coy on that front, though given his frame, the trade mag is already speculating that he could possibly show up as Kryptonian death bringer Doomsday (a famous nemesis of Supes who actually managed to kill Kal-El, however briefly, in the comics) or Martian Manhunter, a fellow Justice League member.Given the recent addition of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and persistent rumours that Nightwing will appear in some capacity (a role that Momoa's probably too physically big to play), it »

During awards season, actors, screenwriters, directors and others working in film are feted at near-constant festivals and awards shows. On Dec. 5, however, it was all about the kids.
The Children’s Defense Fund-California hosted their 23rd Beat the Odds Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel, awarding $10,000 college scholarships to five high school students who have overcome adversity in their personal lives to become successful in school and extra-curriculars. Jennifer Garner, Conan O’Brien, Reese Witherspoon, J.J. Abrams and more joined in to honor the scholars.
“What I really love about this organization and this particular event is that it is truly all about the kids,” Witherspoon said before introducing one of the honorees. “For example, many of you will notice if you look at the back of your chair, there is no gift bag hanging there, nor will you find one waiting for you at the valet.”
Witherspoon smiled as she then described that, »

Even though Ron Burgundy wasn't able to "class up" Espn's SportsCenter yesterday, the network plans on broadcasting more footage of the "interview" it shot of Will Ferrell's character grilling Denver Bronco Peyton Manning for Espn the Magazine. The segment will air prior to the December 18th release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
Ron Burgundy Uncensored: Inside the New Issue of Rolling Stone
The channel had previously used the chat – in which Burgundy praises Manning for all of the success he's achieved "without a mustache" – to tease Ferrell's in-character SportsCenter appearance, »
When Jim Parsons makes an appearance on "Conan," it doesn't take much effort for them to get there because it turns out his day job, "The Big Bang Theory," is just feet away from "Conan's" studio. That made it easy for the actor and Conan O'Brien to kidnap a fan from the audience to invade the set.
One short golf cart ride later, and the trio were walking to Sheldon and Leonard's apartment, where Simon Helberg happened to be. Parsons wanted to make sure the fan got something from the set, so naturally the best option was Helberg's shirt. Meanwhile, Conan snagged a beer from the refrigerator. It's comforting to know there's real beer in there. »
Will Ferrell has been taking his "Anchorman" character Ron Burgundy everywhere lately -- he gave hair product advice on "Conan," he stopped by a North Dakota news broadcast. His latest target? "The Dan Patrick Show."
Check out these clips. Our favorites are the one where he does legendary sports calls, like Jack Buck calling Kirk Gibson's famous home run or Doug Davis calling Doug Flutie's Boston College hail mary -- with his patented Burgundy-ness, and the one at the very bottom where he fields a call from Champ Kind (David Koechner).
They talk about Kind's rejected sports catchphrases -- "Garbanzo beans!" and "Lemon pepper chicken!," which is a dish he loves but it just didn't catch on with the fans. Hee.
"Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" opens nationwide on Dec. 18.
Jim Parsons spent a lot of time practicing how to spank co-star Mayim Bialik's bottom for a recent episode of "The Big Bang Theory," and opened up about the experience on "Conan" on Thursday (Dec. 5).
In the episode, Bialik's character sneakily figures out a way to get physical with Parsons' Sheldon: by getting spanked. "She wants physical attention from Sheldon that she's not getting. So she has to loop him into ways to give it to her," Parsons says. "So she behaves badly and his didactic personality is, 'Well, you must be punished.' So he has to spank her."
Parsons reveals that shooting the scene was next to impossible because he kept bursting out laughing. "She was bent over me on this couch, take after take, being whooped. Yeah," Parsons says. "It was several takes in before you realize, 'Oh, she's a person.'"

Most women would be proud to be featured as the "Best Butt Ever" on a magazine cover -- but, not Evangeline Lilly!"The Hobbit" star sat down with Conan O'Brien on Wednesday, where she opened up about her Women's Health cover, a cover she's not very happy with at all."They go, 'Best. Butt. Ever.' and they have an arrow going to your butt," Conan said, holding up the cover. "I'm just curious -- is that something they tell you before you do the shoot?""No!," Lilly exclaimed. "Do you think I would have done the shoot if they said, 'Oh, by the way, we're gonna say 'Best Butt Ever!' and put a big arrow to your behind?""You know, every woman is after a kind of classy image, I didn't want T&A on my cover. It's a women's magazine, not Maxim." It's not the worst thing that could have happened, »
