How Conan O'Brien Got the People of Cuba Laughing

12 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Diplomatic relations are still being restored with Cuba - and U.S.'s 50-plus-year economic embargo is still intact - but that didn't stop late-night star Conan O'Brien from heading to the island. The Conan host and a 10-person crew recently traveled to the communist country's capital city of Havana after receiving an invite from the Cuban Ministry of Culture. While they were there to tape a special episode of his TBS show, the funnyman says the visit was for more than the laughs, though. "Our thing was: Let's approach this from the most fundamental level, which is, I'm going, »

'Batman v Superman' Has No Aquaman Action Scenes?

15 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jason Momoa seems to back up reports that his Aquaman is not featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice too much. He hasn't shot any action scenes, teasing that its Clark and Bruce's movie, not his. He goes onto talk about his solo movie, Justice League Part 1, and what it was like to see Aquaman revealed for the first time, which came earlier than expected.

Promoting his series The Red Road, Jason Momoa claims that the Aquaman reveal will actually help his show. He then goes onto say that he has not been involved in 'too much action' in terms of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, hinting that he won't have much to do until Justice League hits a year later in 2017. While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has wrapped, there is the possibility he could be called in for reshoots. »

Simpsons Showrunner Al Jean Remembers Leonard Nimoy

16 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As any Simpsons superfan can tell you, there was no guest-star quite like the late Leonard Nimoy. The Star Trek legend made two extremely memorable appearances on the series, both as himself. The first was 1993's Conan O'Brien–penned "Marge vs. the Monorail," in which he was the guest of honor for the first ride of Springfield's monorail (and spent much of that ride boring the hell out of a fellow passenger who has zero interest in his Trek tales). He returned for 1997's "The Springfield Files," providing further delight by delivering a send-up of introductions to overwrought mystery shows. Longtime Simpsons writer and showrunner Al Jean got in touch with us today and gave us his thoughts and memories about working with Nimoy. Here's what he said, in full:When we were producing the Simpsons monorail episode that Conan had written, we were hoping to get George Takei to come »

Big Bang Theory's Melissa Rauch allowed to cheat with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

18 hours ago | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Big Bang Theory's Melissa Rauch is allowed to cheat on her husband if it is with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The 'Big Bang Theory' star has been given the permission by her husband Winston Beigel and is allowed to stray from her marriage if she meets one of the characters from animated action film 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'. She shared: ''We've been together thirteen years. ''My free pass is any - there could be a lot of them - of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, any which one I so choose.'' The 34-year-old actress and comedian admitted her love for the animated characters grew when she saw a billboard poster promoting the film. Speaking on Conan, she said: ''When I saw the billboard for (the movie), I thought, 'Leo, pretty hot.' ''And he was like, 'That's it - that's your hall pass, any one of them. »

The Red Sonja Movie Gets A New Writer

23 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Looks like we'll be getting that Red Sonja movie at some stage after all. The Robert E. Howard-created warrior (though it was actually Roy Thomas who revamped her for Marvel's Conan comics) was already the subject of a movie from director Richard Fleischer back in 1985 with Brigitte Nielsen in the title role, and since that there have been a couple of attempts at a reboot -- most notably Robert Rodriguez's version which would have starred his then girlfriend Rose McGowan, and very nearly got off the ground. Then back in 2011 Simon West actually signed on to helm a Red Sonja movie (possibly starring Amber Heard) which would have tied into Marcus Nispel's Conan The Barbarian remake, but obviously that wasn't to be either. Now it seems with Arnold Schwarzenegger set to crush his enemies as Conan once again, Nu Image feel it's time to give Sonja another »

Red Sonja reboot has new writer

26 February 2015 10:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It looks like the remake of Red Sonja is active again, as a screenwriter boards the project...

A reboot/remake we thought had fallen firmly off the radar, it looks like the plans to bring Red Sonja back to the screen are active after all. The project has been on the slate at Nu Image/Millennium Films for a while now, and it's now hired a new writer to pen a script for the film.

The new Red Sonja, therefore, is being written by Christopher Cosmos, based of course on the work of Robert E Howard and Roy Thomas. At the moment, there's no director or star attached.

The closest a new take on Red Sonja got to the screen of late was when Robert Rodriguez was circling the project, with Rose McGowan mooted to star. Megan Fox had been linked at one point, too. But right now, the plan »

Conan Tells Jon Stewart Why He Went To Cuba

26 February 2015 6:14 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

President Obama announced that we were going to try and warm up relations a little bit with Cuba and I thought, ‘This is my chance! I want to get in before The View,” Conan O’Brien told Jon Stewart last night of his recent visit to the island nation where Conan shot an episode of his TBS late-night show. Cubans did not know who he was, but the Canadian and European tourists who’ve been coming to Cuba for years did recognize him, Conan said. “I wanted to go and do my… »

Here's 8-Year-Old Melissa Rauch Performing a Song from A Chorus Line (Video)

26 February 2015 6:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Melissa Rauch is justly adored from her starring role in The Big Bang Theory, but beneath that innocent exterior, Rauch is hiding a racy past. Exhibit A: The star brought some home movies of her childhood to Conan Wednesday night, including this clip of her singing a very age-inappropriate song from A Chorus Line. The clip shows Rauch singing the song "Dance: 10; Looks: 3 [T--- and A--]" from the classic stage production. Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter seem vaguely mortified to have the clip on the show: O'Brien makes some comments about it being used in court. "My parents were very, 'As long as it was for art's sake, »

Conan O’Brien On Jon Stewart Exit: “He’s Got It Wrong. We Need The Food!”

25 February 2015 3:00 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Conan O’Brien is disappointed, maybe, with friendly late-night rival Jon Stewart. O’Brien and producer Jeff Ross made a pit stop Wednesday afternoon at Trattoria Dell’Arte in Manhattan between appearances on Howard Stern and The Daily Show With Jon Stewart to pitch Conan’s upcoming special about his adventures in Havana. “If I can still get giddy about something, that’s miraculous to me.” But he also had some funny thoughts about the toll a long stretch in the same… »

Conan O'Brien & Billy Eichner Join Grindr, Hilarity Ensues

25 February 2015 2:45 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

This might be the best thing you see all day! Conan O'Brien enlisted the help of "Billy on the Street's" Billy Eichner to try out the gay hookup app Grindr ... and they definitely found a few (hilarious) matches.  Check out the video above to see what Conan makes his profile name and find out who he meets up with! After brainstorming a few names for the red-headed comedian's profile, Conan and Billy settle on "Freckle F--ker." They proceeded to reach out various men on the site with some ridiculous pick-up lines and pop culture references ... and Conan was even recognized, despite Eichner telling the talk show host that no one in the gay community would know who he was. After some hilarious debate, the two set out to meet one lucky guy in O'Brien's Grindr van, which featured giant portraits of Cher and Liza Minnelli. While this meet and »

Billy Eichner Introduces Conan O'Brien to Grindr (Video)

25 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

[Youtube "dh-mZPtTdpc"] "We're about to find out - is Conan [O'Brien] a top or a bottom?" So said Billy Eichner on Conan Tuesday during a pretaped segment in which he introduced the host to the wonderful world of Grindr. O'Brien was certainly up to the task, admitting he could "eat [Ryan Gosling] with a spoon." First impressions are important, so O'Brien wanted to pick a username that was right for him. "Rich Ginger" felt right, but "Ginger Sugar Daddy" felt even more right. Finally, at Eichner's suggestion, O'Brien went with what was clearly the obvious choice all along: "Frecklef---er." The segment was similar to one »

Conan O’Brien is a lot of things… a former Simpsons writer, a veteran talk show host, and now… a registered member of Grindr?

On Tuesday’s Conan, Billy on the Street’s Billy Eichner helped the TBS host (aka Frecklef—ker) sign up for the gay hook-up app, giving him the chance to find the Sanjaya to his Melinda Doolittle. (For what it’s worth, TVLine’s Reality Check co-host was tickled by the multiple shout-outs!)

Conan O’Brien Joins Gay Dating App Grindr, Meets Dream Man With Help From Billy Eichner (Video)

After (un)successfully conquering dating app Tinder, Conan O’Brien tackled gay version Grindr with a little help from “Parks and Recreation” star Billy Eichner. “Tindr’s a lot of straight people pretending it’s for dating, but really using it for sex — a lot,” Eichner explained. “Grindr is for basically gay guys not pretending it’s for anything other than meeting up to have sex. So I think you’re gonna have a good time.” Also Read: Conan O’Brien Visit to Cuba Marks First for Late Night Host in 50 Years The “Billy on the Street” host added that »

Conan O’Brien and Billy Eichner Trolled Grindr

25 February 2015 12:28 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As he did so successfully with Tinder, Conan enlisted celebrity help to experiment with another popular hookup app: Grindr. Billy Eichner comes to the rescue this time to build Conan's profile, give him a Vox-level explainer about the Grindr scene, and, essentially, have a lot of Billy on the Street moments. Like last time, you'll see: hysterical pre-date conversations, a ridiculous van, and an awkward reveal. It's all painfully wonderful because Conan's essentially pioneering a new form of catfishing. »

Best of Late Night TV: 'Parks and Recreation' Cast Kisses Goodbye; Josh Duhamel, Gabrielle Union Throw Food (Video)

24 February 2015 11:05 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Seth Meyers had the cast of "Parks and Recreation" on his show Tuesday night for their big final goodbye. Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Retta, Jim O'Heir and Mike Schur discussed filming the finale, and revealed their own pitches for how they wanted the show to end. Since it's also the one-year anniversary of Seth's show, they sang an anniversary song for him, but they didn't rehearse it, so it didn't go too well. What did go very well was their "Bye, Bye Li'l Sebastian" song on the way out -- complete with Jim (Gerry) and Aubrey (April) making out, to the surprise of everyone around them. »

Best of Late Night TV: Christina Aguilera's Amazing Britney Spears Impression, Kobe Bryant's Lakers Disapproval (Video)

23 February 2015 11:10 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Christina Aguilera was on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Monday night, and Jimmy had "The Voice" coach play "Wheel of Musical Impressions." Xtina had to mix artists like Cher (with whom she worked in "Burlesque") with songs like the Folgers Coffee jingle. She was good! Christina really went for it when she got Britney Spears (her fellow Mouseketeer then pop star rival) paired with "This Little Piggy." Pretty obvious that was not just a random selection, but dagnabbit - Christina nailed it. For once, Jimmy was completely outshined at one of his own games. He gave her a standing ovation! Christina also sang Shakira well. The woman can sing. »
