Fairy tales may seem fun and whimsical and sweet now, but the histories of most of them are dark and truly terrifying. Perhaps you are familiar with Hans Christian Andersen, who penned the original 'Little Mermaid' fairy tale, one that ended, well, it just ended very differently than the Disney version. But Andersen wasn't the only author who used his fairy tales to freak kids out. Over in Germany, Heinrich Hoffmann did the same thing with his 'Der Struwwelpeter,' and guess who grew up reading it?
Although it might seem like good form for someone who has just landed a sweet new gig to kowtow a smidgen to their predecessor, soon-to-be 'Late Show' host Stephen Colbert doesn't need to force such emotions when it comes to current host David Letterman, because, man, does he really love the comedian and his show.
Lindsay Lohan hit the 'Late Show With David Letterman' last night, and the pair inevitably prank called Oprah (as one does), a gag that could have gone in a very different reaction if Winfrey wasn't so damn wise. Seriously, don't try to pull the wool over Oprah's eyes. She knows what's up.
The story of ‘Dom Hemingway’ is a familiar enough one – a tough-talking safecracker endures years in jail, thanks to keeping a locked jaw when it comes to the involvement of his mastermind boss, only to be let loose to commit one last job and do right by his family – but Richard Shepard’s energetic and entertaining spin on what could be just another genre picture, along with star Jude Law’s bold and amusing performance as the eponymous antihero, make ‘Dom Hemingway’ a heist film with its own unique heart.
Important question: who among you knew that 'Tonight Show' host and all-around funny guy Jimmy Fallon was also a skilled harmonica player? Has he been doing this for long? Does everyone know about this? Should we have already known about this? Somewhat related: who among you knew that Russell Crowe has a background in fronting badly-named rock bands?
Late-night show hosts -- they're just like us! Sometimes they too find a giant tarantula, totally dead, in the middle of their swanky pools! Sometimes they even decide to fish them out on their own! Sometimes things go badly!
'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon's love of sports, games and making his celebrity guests fully participate in both has been well documented, but last night, he took things up a notch. Well, actually, Bill Cosby took things up a notch.
What did you do this weekend? Saw friends, enjoyed spring, took a walk, had a picnic, slept in? Cool. Jimmy Kimmel zipped down to Arizona to take pictures with the Clinton clan -- the entire Clinton clan -- so we're going to have to go ahead and crown the late-night host the king of the weekend. Hey, you can still win this next one!
What do you need to form a random doo-wop group with singing legend Billy Joel? Perhaps three other singers? Some talent? An arsenal of songs? Someone to convince Joel that he needs to be a in strange doo-wop group at this point in his career? Nope! Turns out, you just need a late night talk show and an iPad app.
Apparently, being 'Tonight Show' host means that you can get access to a lot of wild stuff, like private phone chats (with split-screen video, most improbably) between President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin about the situation in Crimea. At least, that's what host Jimmy Fallon wants us to believe.
