50 Cent premieres trailer for ‘Malefiftycent’ on Jimmy Kimmel

- June 6th, 2014

What goes better than Angelina Jolie and Disney? 50 Cent and Disney, obviously.

On Thursday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, rapper 50 Cent announced he had a new movie coming out, bigger than anything he’s done in the past.

“I did a big one, a real big one. This one ain’t going to any red box,” he said to Kimmel before premiering the clip of his new film, Malefiftycent.

In the trailer, 50 replaces Jolie as the evil witch Maleficent, the fairy responsible for placing Sleeping Beauty in her eternal slumber.

Unlike Jolie, 50 carries a little bit more edge; more gangster than most Disney villains we’re used to seeing on screen.

“I’ve been shot nine times, I’m not afraid of no little white girl,” he says at one point.

I may be sold on the trailer, but how many times are we going to have to hear about 50 being shot?

Move on, man.

- May 6th, 2014

Julia Roberts and Sally Field brought out the extreme potty mouths on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night.

The Hollywood stars competed in a celebrity curse-off, with each having five seconds to say the most vile word or phrase possible, with Kimmel as the judge.

Of course, this is television, so there is a whole bunch of bleeping going on, but you get the idea of what they are saying.

Who needs some serious work on their F-bomb repertoire? Find out:

Seth Meyers pays homage to David Letterman

- April 4th, 2014

Seth Meyers was the first and only late night host to say a few words about David Letterman’s recent retirement announcement.

“This [Late Night] was David Letterman’s show. If it wasn’t for David Letterman, this show wouldn’t exist. If it wasn’t for David Letterman, I wouldn’t be here,” Meyers said after his opening monologue Thursday night. “And if I wasn’t here, then you’d just be an empty audience looking at nothing.”

Meyers confessed while he was too young to watch Johnny Carson growing up, he was around for Letterman’s rise to the top, and cherished the show as a young kid.

“I grew up on Letterman. I had discovered Johnny Carson a few years later, I was too young for him, but I grew up on Letterman. But Letterman for me was a show that you had a cool uncle, or one of your friends had a cool older brother that told you to watch.” he said.

Meyers even took a moment to reflect on the times he appeared on Letterman’s show as a guest, during his 13 year run on Saturday Night Live as a writer and performer.

“The first time I went on I was so excited. The second time I went on, I was even more excited be there because I didn’t totally screw everything up,” Meyers said, pausing before adding one last memory. “The last time I was on the show was just before I took over Late Night here and he said he always wanted to call it the Tomorrow Show, and now that you [Meyers] have it back, you should call it the Tomorrow Show again.”

“He’s probably right, but I could never call it the Tomorrow Show because Letterman was on Late Night and this is David Letterman’s show,” he finished to a rousing round of applause for the audience.

Interestingly enough, Meyers was the only comedian who took a couple of minutes to pay homage to the late night veteran.

Although taking into account that Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel and the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon probably filmed around the same time as Letterman’s announcement, there’s a better chance the current late night hosts will pay tribute to Letterman tomorrow night.

The two hosts did give their pal “Dave” individual shout outs, though. Jimmy Kimmel praised his late night competition and long time friend over Twitter and Jimmy Fallon told The Hollywood Reporter, “”Dave’s the greatest. One of the true innovators in TV history. He’s made all of us better.”

 

As for Letterman’s CBS late night comrade Craig Ferguson, host of the Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, he’s on a repeat schedule this week and will most likely not be saying anything about the subject until he’s back in the studio on Monday.

Letterman is set to retire in 2015.

Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Rogen spoof ‘True Detective’

- March 11th, 2014

True Detective might be over for now, but Jimmy Kimmel gave his studio audience a “sneak peek” of what was to come in season 2 – and it includes a lot of Cyndi Lauper.

While in Austin, Texas to tape a week of shows for the city’s South by Southwest festival, Kimmel aired a video spoof of the HBO drama, which has wowed critics and fans with stellar performances by stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

In this spoof of the second season, Kimmel plays Harrelson’s good ol’ boy Marty Hart and enlists Seth Rogen to play the emotionally battered Rustin Cohle (McConaughey). At the beginning of the video, Rogen dons Cohle’s messy ponytail and is surrounded by Lone Star beer tallboys as he recalls the traumatic events of his past as a detective, asking “You ever seen a baby kill his own mama with a breakfast taco?”

The true buddy-cop scene comes at the end, when Rogen starts quoting lyrics from Cher’s If I Could Turn Back Time and Cyndi Lauper’s Time After Time, as he and Kimmel drive through Austin. Soon enough, the two are both singing Time After Time together – in harmony – and looking lovingly into each other’s eyes. The camera fades to black as they are about to make out.

True Detective has been a runaway hit this year for HBO, with 3.5 million viewers tuning in to the season finale last Sunday. The demand was so high online that the network’s streaming service HBO GO temporarily crashed.
