When it comes to making a grand entrance, no one does it like Steve Martin. During his visit to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the legendary comedian went all out.
In this hilarious video we see Steve making his way from his dressing room, down the halls, walking the streets of New York only to end up at The Ed Sullivan Theatre as David Letterman sits at his desk confused as he asks Jimmy how “his little skit is going?” Anyway, a whole 3 minutes later, Steve finally ends up at the Studio 6B, sits down and… the show immediately has to take a commercial break.
The skit is genius and something about these three funny men together in one skit just makes me so happy.
One to never shy away from the late night show couch even in the midst of personal controversy, Lindsay Lohan paid another visit to David Letterman last night where things got a little awkward.
As Letterman is wont to do, the late night host asked the 27-year-old actress a couple of tough questions concerning her upcoming trip to rehab. Needless to say, things get a little awkward.
“We didn’t discuss this in the pre-interview,” she said. “Just sayin’.”
Lohan, who has repeatedly tried to jump start her career, took it pretty well. She even joked that Letterman sounded like Dr. Phil, the daytime pseudo-psychotherapist/host.
While Lohan did her best to navigate some murky waters, we have to admit her PR person isn’t doing a very good job. If they were looking for an easy guest appearance on any late night show, they should’ve sent Lohan to Jay Leno because he never asks the hard-hitting questions.
Spring Breakers star Selena Gomez stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman last night to promote the new controversial movie.
The former Disney darling was charming throughout the whole interview, especially when the topic of her now ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber came up. The show’s host, David Letterman, talked about how the last time Bieber was a guest on the show, Letterman made him cry.
“Well then, that makes two of us,” quipped Gomez.
She pretty much stopped the interview as she had Letterman and audience in stitches. Letterman even gave props to Gomez for her comedic timing. “That’s pretty strong,” he remarked.
What do you think of Selena Gomez’s Justin Bieber joke? Did she go too far or was it fair game?
WATCH SELENA GOMEZ ON DAVID LETTERMAN BELOW (Justin Bieber talk starts at the 5:30 mark):
After watching her promo tour for Les Miserables, I have to say Amanda Seyfried is becoming one of my favourite personalities ever. Every interview she does is ridiculously entertaining, case in point, her interview with Ellen Degeneres.
She has so many talents but here’s one you didn’t expect from her — or anyone really. Seyfried rapped 2Pac’s “California Love” while inexplicably wearing a frog mask. The YouTube comments are mixed so far, though matheuswoww‘s comment led the pack when I wrote this: “That’s the whitest thing i’ve seen.”

Perhaps she had a little liquid courage in her system? She admitted to David Letterman the other day that she indulges in a little alcohol before big talk shows so she can enjoy them more. Before Letterman’s show she had three drinks, partially supplied by his colleagues.
“I’ve never done a live television show — or afternoon — without some kind of liquid courage,” she said. “I understand that I have a problem maybe, but you know what? It really gets me through. I really want to enjoy my experience out here because it’s special.”
I’m crossing my fingers we never hear about Seyfried enrolling in a rehab program, but in the meantime this girl is absolutely hilarious. She totally owned rapping in a frog mask and I’m guessing that’s no easy feat.

Stopping by on The Late Show with David Letterman, the 75 year-old actor followed the band out on the stage and lingered awkwardly around the boys when there wasn’t any more room on the couch for him to sit.
After Letterman refused permission for Hoffman to sit on his lap, the legendary actor sat on the armrest right beside sweet Niall Horan.
But realizing that he couldn’t keep his eyes off the Irish lad, Hoffman leaned in to awkwardly kiss Horan.
“Good heavens,” Letterman said when Hoffman left the stage. “What a sl*t!”
Earlier in the program, Letterman kissed Hoffman after the actor praised him for being an underrated talent.
While it looks like Hoffman may be passing on the love, I can’t help wondering what it would be like to see the acting legend at a 1D concert! He must really be a hardcore Directioner to pull that off!
And for good measure:
She can sing, she can act…and now she can play with cups too?!
Proving everyone that she’s just a regular dork like one of us, Anna Kendrick stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman to promote her new film Pitch Perfect. During the interview, she even managed to show off some of her secret talents!
A regular Reddit user, the actress called herself ”a loser” and admitted that she spent the whole afternoon watching a viral video to learn how to play with cups while singing. And let me say, she nails it!
Dear Anna, don’t ever change. In fact, I think we should be BFFs.
Watch the video here:
And if you’re wondering which viral video Anna is talking about, here it is!
David Letterman came off as a stern Grandpa last night when he ragged on Justin Bieber for his many tattoos. Then he ragged on Justin AGAIN for getting the name of the Sistine Chapel wrong.
Bieber’s currently promoting his new album Believe (which is out now BTW) and stopped by David Letterman to perform “Boyfriend.”
Because of his new album, Justin got the word BELIEVE tattooed on his left arm. We all know JB is no stranger to tattoos (he already has a few) so I found it kind of odd that David was so taken back by the whole thing, openly giving his piece of mind, ”Oh God, how many do you have?” and “Well tell me that’s the last one.” You could tell Justin felt kind of uncomfortable, and I don’t blame him. I personally don’t think having ink on your body changes someone as a person. Justin responded to Grandpa David by saying it’s a way he expresses himself.
“Do me a favor, don’t go nuts,” Letterman said. “More and more you see murales like the Sistine Chapel and it’s too much!”
Justin answered with: “I’m not going for the Sixteen Chapel,” causing the audience and David to erupt into a fit of self-righteous giggles.
David then chuckled and said, “Canadian high school.” Ouch! We think he’s being a little bit harsh on Justin not to mention ALL OF CANADA.
Here’s a better look at Justin’s tattoo: Read more…
David Letterman quickly turned into Jennifer Lawrence’s shrink last night during their interview when she revealed that she thinks she’s like a troll. “I hate myself,” she said. “I think the movie is great but their biggest mistake was me.”
“Let’s go back to you hate yourself,” said Letterman taking out a pen and notepad. Letterman didn’t even need to ask any questions because Lawrence had multiple embarrassing stories to share, including how she gets all shaky on the red carpet. She hysterically retold horror stories about her brothers torturing her, like when they encouraged her to do shots before a red carpet event, which resulted in an unfortunate peeing incident (not too sure of the details here). She also said that when she wanted to try out for T-ball one of her brothers tied her to a tree and threw tennis balls at her so she’d toughen up.
The thing that struck me most about Lawrence is how utterly neurotic and self-depreciative she is. She’s so self-loathing that Letterman recommended psychiatric help. Though she bounces up and down like a Chihuahua (that’s her reference, not mine) she comes off incredibly humble. I love that!
One thing though, I think the Hunger Games star needs to be serenaded with “What Makes You Beautiful” by the boys of One Direction.
You got to hand it to David Letterman for bringing up Justin Bieber’s paternity test dilemma in a casual way.
When taping a segment on the Late Show with David Letterman, Justin was told his accuser is a weasel. He responded by saying: “I could smell a weasel, too. People make up false accusations… I am 17, but it is going to happen, being in the spotlight.”
David then asked about the paternity test and what kind of samples the doctors took. Justin said he just got his mouth swabbed. Perez Hilton posted the video on his website but you can also view it below.
David showed the x-ray of Kim’s ass and examined it. Khloe said, “that’s all fat” and tried to get some details, asking–bizarrely–”did it hurt?” They also discussed Kourtney’s breast implants.
A good time all around!
She said, “We were watching the game, and I was eating, and I was getting down to, like, the last couple pieces of popcorn, and all of a sudden, I see a hand coming in. And I’m like – anybody who knows me does not put their hand in my food, especially when it’s close to my mouth. And I said, ‘What are you…?’ And then I went, ‘You know what? I love you too much, I’m going to give it to you. You deserve it.’”
Well David Letterman couldn’t help himself, and needed to reenact that very special moment. With a bucket of popcorn and a hot Cameron Diaz, David was instantly hated by every man in the world.
Jon Cryer, star of ‘Two And A Half Men,’ spoke to David Letterman last night about former costar Charlie Sheen’s very public meltdown.
Cryer apparently never saw it coming that Sheen would be fired and embark on a crazy media frenzy.
Even though Sheen has publicly bashed him, calling him a “troll” to the media, Cryer also still considers the troubled actor a “good friend.”
As for Sheen’s new replacement, Ashton Kutcher, Cryer feels confident about the new direction of the show.
“We had a very quick meeting to see if we could deal with each other, and we could,” Cryer told Letterman.
“They threw everything together very quickly and they had to fly us to New York so they could parade us in front of advertisers. And they put us in the CBS corporate jet, which was very snazzy.”
Watch the appearance below!
The nearly two hour performance showcases Dave Grohl and company in Beatles-esque suits with Taylor Hawkin’s kick drum in Beatles font. The Fab Four poses and head shakes are perfected by the band and they commit to it so much to broadcast the first half of the show in black-and-white.
For those that aren’t following, the Beatles were a British band from the 1960s that had some good songs and significantly changed music. In 1964, they made their American television debut on the Ed Sullivan Show.
Playing fiercly through Wasting Light in its entirety and bringing out a parade of radio hits, including “Everlong” and “All My Life”, the Foos appear to be in their prime. In fact, the new album has been deemed as their best album in years by many critics including Rolling Stone.
We’ve all heard what Twitter, Facebook and essentially every other news source has had to say about James Franco’s hosting duties at this year’s Oscar ceremonies.
Everyone thought he had pulled a Pineapple Express. Was he stoned?
This Friday on CBS’s Late Night with David Letterman, we’ll hear what Franco himself has to say.
Letterman, 63, received some heavy criticism after his 1995 Oscar appearance also.
“I was so bad that they talked for a while about shutting down the motion picture industry. … I was God awful,” recalls Letterman. However, 32-year-old Franco one-uped the late-night King by arguing that nobody accused him of being on drugs.
“They didn’t say you were stoned,” Franco says. “People said I was under the influence.” He compared his stoner-demeaner to his co-host Anne Hathaway’s over energetic display of musical-child-syndrome.
“I think the Tasmanian Devil would look stoned standing next to Anne. She has a lot of energy!,” says Franco. “I haven’t watched it back yet. Maybe I had low energy? I honestly played those lines as well as I could.”
Following this year’s Oscars, part of the criticism noted that Franco’s over-exhaustion in taking on more than is humanly capable is not an excuse to justify his lacklustre performance. Critics felt that he should have taken the gig more seriously than he did.
“I never dreamed of being, like, the best Oscar host ever,” he says on Friday night’s episode. “It was never on my list of things to do. It doesn’t mean I didn’t care and it doesn’t mean I didn’t try hard, right?”
Letterman reassures Franco through his classic wizardry of words, ”There will be, I think for you, a modicum of embarrassment, which you shouldn’t feel. That will pass. You’ll go into a period of numbness, and then you’ll become rightly defiant.”
Check out the full interview this Friday night on CBS’s Late Night with David Letterman.
As reported by Gossipcop.com, after Sunday’s Grammy Awards Letterman joked about “Lohan stealing a Grammy award,” which poked fun at Lohan regarding her pending trial for stealing jewelry. Afterwards he received a call from an unknown man who claimed to be Lohan’s friend saying, “Lindsay thought that joke was hilarious… She wants to be on your show.” Letterman was thrilled and called CBS’ publicity department to issue a press release.
When Lohan received the news she said that this information was false. Letterman apologized to Lohan and her family for the confusion.
Poor Lindsay, more bad press…
A year after appearing on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” Joaquin Phoenix returned to the show to apologize for his last awkward appearance on the program.
“I mean, I think that you’ve interviewed many, many people and I assumed that you would know the difference between a character and a real person,” he says about the now-infamous 2009 interview. “I hope I didn’t offend you in any way.”
It all turned out to be an act, as Director Cassey Affleck recently revealed Joaquin’s new documentary, “I’m Still Here.”
“Oh, no. Oh, no, no, no,” Letterman told him. “I’m telling you, it was so much fun. It was batting practice, you know what I mean? Every one of them was a dinger.”
So what do you think about this stunt? Will you end up seeing Joaquin’s documentary?
You probably remember the appearance that Joaquin Phoenix made on the Late Show with David Letterman last year. Phoenix came on the show wearing dark sunglasses and rocking a shaggy beard. His weird look was then only emphasized by how he acted—and apparently it was an act. The uninterested answers and the declaration he made about entering the hip-hop music industry were completely fake.
Casey Affleck, who directed the film I’m Still Here, which supposedly documents Joaquin Phoenix’s life for the past two years, says that almost every part of it was an act. “It’s a terrific performance, it’s the performance of his career,” Affleck told the New York Times.
The film was released last week and faced some big criticism and its credibility was attacked, prompting Affleck to speak out about the film.
“I never intended to trick anybody,” he said. “The idea of a quote, hoax, unquote, never entered my mind.”
I’m Still Here definitely has the elements of a hoax though—a lot of significant scenes in the “documentary” include actors playing different parts, including Phoenix’s family and prostitutes.
What do you think about the film? Is it a true piece of art or a huge piece of trickery?
With only six months back hosting “The Tonight Show,” the ratings have been very disappointing for Jay Leno, reports Variety. In the second quarter of this year, the average total audience declined from 5 million viewers last year to 4 million viewers. This is also notable considering Jay had a number of high profile guests, including President Barack Obama.
With that being said, Jay is still beating his arch nemesis David Letterman in the ratings. But with Conan O’Brien’s debut at TBS coming soon, and with so much public support for Conan, it maybe Conan O’Brien who has the last laugh.
The Late Show host’s marriage and image was very publicly put through some rough times late last year when a sex scandal and extortion plot involving Letterman sleeping with coworkers broke. Letterman is, however, ready to put things back together, or at least try.
As E! Online reports David Letterman made an appearance on Live! With Regis and Kelly and spoke about life at home and the struggle to repair a situation that has gone down the drain. Letterman’s personal life has been quiet as of the past little while, but appearing on the popular talk show this morning, Letterman spoke about the current state of his relationship.
Though the time was mostly filled with quips and typically light material, at the end of the interview Regis Philbin asked Letterman a question about how life at home was, which sparked a heart-felt answer.
First acknowledging the past, Letterman said, “You know when something like this happens—and mostly it was reckless behaviour on my part—and if you behave recklessly and it hurts your family, well then of course it hurts you.”
The late night star seemed to be genuinely hurt by the whole ordeal and, as the rest of the interview suggested, ready to start over. He compared his life to a bomb exploding but remained optimistic that he would be able to put the pieces back together.
“It was stupid behaviour. You take a look at the explosion and it knocks you down, and you wake up every morning and you’re scared and you’re depressed and sad and you kind of gotta let that knock you down…and pretty soon you’ve gotta start knocking it down.”
“And then when that happens, you’re able to take a look at the pieces left of your life, because you think an explosion has taken place, and you’re looking at the shards and you see, well, can we put this back together? And by god, maybe you can put it back together, and maybe it won’t be the same, but maybe it’ll be different—maybe it can even be better in a different way.”
Letterman seems to have just a vague idea of what to expect in the future for his personal life, but kudos to him for keeping a positive outlook on the situation.
Though he has talked about the scandal previously on his own show, this morning marks the first time he has publically addressed the matters outside of the Late Show studio.
Without a focus on being funny, appearing on Live! With Regis and Kelly gave Letterman the chance to deliver his message: He is hopeful and starting to rebuild his relationship with wife Regina.
Letterman also thanked his friends, Philbin included, for supporting him through this time.
PEOPLE reports that Peet unexpectedly went into labour on Tuesday, missing her scheduled appearance on David Letterman to promote her new movie “Please Give.” This is the second child for Peet and her screenwriter husband David Benioff.
“Mother and daughter are doing great,” Peet’s rep told the website.
