"It feels so good to be out of the house, ladies and gentlemen!" Letterman joked before calling out Paul Shaffer, the former band leader of The Late Show, for also making an appearance on Kimmel's program. "Paul, you work here now?"

David Letterman Is Tired of Conan Complaining About His Literal Gift Horse (Video)

18 October 2017 6:29 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

David Letterman is a gift-giver, which really works with his new Santa look. The former “Late Show” host joined “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in Brooklyn on Tuesday, where the bushily bearded late-night legend was just happy “to be out of the house,” he said. But Letterman had a bone to pick with another of their late-night brethren: Conan O’Brien. You see, Dave sent the TBS personality a horse — yes, a real, live one — and Conan’s having a tough time with the upkeep. That was also the topic of conversation when O’Brien visited Stephen Colbert’s show — Letterman’s old stomping grounds. »

Quote of the Day: Patty Jenkins on Her Duty to Fight for Equal Pay on “Wonder Woman 2”

11 October 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Jenkins on “Conan

Wonder Woman” helmer and record-smasher extraordinaire Patty Jenkins made headlines last month when, after a long negotiation process, she officially signed on to helm the superheroine sequel and became history’s highest-paid female filmmaker. Now, in the cover story for Variety’s “Power of Women La” issue, Jenkins has revealed that she felt a sense of feminist responsibility as she negotiated her “Wonder Woman 2” deal.

“You’re of course aware of the money,” Jenkins said of her salary talks. “But I’ve never been more aware of a duty than I was in this deal. I was extremely aware that I had to make sure I was being paid what the male equivalent would be.”

Not only is pay parity something Diana Prince would expect and demand, it’s a perennial issue for women in Hollywood. Megastars like Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain, and Jennifer Lawrence have spoken publicly about the pay gap, while TV actresses like Emmy Rossum and the women of “Big Bang Theory” and “Criminal Minds” have had to fight to be paid the same as their male co-stars.

Jenkins was aware of those women’s stories — and the countless other stories like them — and knew she was in an advantageous position after the success of “Wonder Woman.” “Women who have not been in a system that allows them to build up the same level of pay as men are not able to be paid the same as men forever if that’s the way it continues,” she observed. “You have to ask for it to happen, and you have to ask when you’re the appropriate person. I knew when Charlize [Theron] had to do it on ‘Snow White and the Huntsman,’ and I felt that it was my job to do it here.” She directed Theron in her Oscar-winning role as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in “Monster.”

According to Variety, “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot supported Jenkins all the way. “She is definitely paving the way for so many other female directors,” the actress commented. “I think it was very important that she fought to get the best deal. You got to walk the walk and talk the talk.”

The Killing,” “Arrested Development,” and “Five” are among Jenkins’ other credits. Next, she’s directing the pilot episode of TNT’s “One Day She’ll Darken.” The series follows a young woman who, while trying to learn about her past, crosses paths with Dr. George Hodel, a suspect of the Black Dahlia murder. Jenkins is also exec producing. She was recently announced as a keynote speaker at the third annual Women in Entertainment Summit and as one of Women and Hollywood’s 10th Anniversary Trailblazer Award winners.

Wonder Woman 2” is scheduled to hit theaters December 13, 2019.

Quote of the Day: Patty Jenkins on Her Duty to Fight for Equal Pay on “Wonder Woman 2” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Kumail Nanjiani Gets Chopped in Half on Conan’s ‘Shadow of War’ Clueless Gamer (Video)

6 October 2017 7:50 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Conan O’Brien sucks at video games, but “Silicon Valley” actor Kumail Nanjiani most certainly does not. As a matter of fact, the stand-up comedian and gaming fan actually voices a character in the Tuesday release “Shadow of War,” which made him the perfect partner for “Conan’s” latest “Clueless Gamer.” Oh Thursday, Nanjiani tried to teach O’Brien how to play the action-rpg, though that was pretty much a lost cause. When the “Big Sick” star-writer took the sticks, however, it was a different story. “It’s like watching Mozart play the piano,” the TBS host said of Nanjiani’s Xbox acumen. »

5 October 2017 8:12 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Billy Eichner is recounting his experience at the Emmys last month -- particularly, his run-in with Sean Spicer.

The 39-year-old comedian made an appearance on Conan on Wednesday, where he talked about a particularly awkward moment backstage involving the former White House Press Secretary, who made a surprise appearance at the start of the awards show.

"This is the most surreal moment, I'm in the green room backstage -- a small little green room they set up -- and Sean Spicer walks in," Eichner recalled. "He does that bit at the beginning of the show, and then he walks into the green room, which is where all the actors hang out. I'm standing there with Jim Parsons, who's getting ready to go on, and no one would talk to Sean Spicer. The only person who would talk to him is -- not kidding -- is Young Sheldon (actor Iain Armitage). That is not a joke."
