Jake Gyllenhall was on The Late Show yesterday and David Letterman asked him to demonstrate the “Salmon” on him. What is it? Basically, you go up to someone who is standing with their legs apart, scream “Salmon!” as you quickly move your hand back and forth between their legs several times. Even though it doesn’t look like it would be fun to have it happen to you, the CBS late night seemed to really enjoy it. And I enjoyed watching it!
Jennifer Lawrence is one of the few younger actors who really gets David Letterman excited about interviewing again and she didn’t disappoint yesterday on The Late Show.
Their chat started off with him telling her he really liked her friends backstage, and then she told the CBS late night host about the first time she met one of them. She explained that the first time she saw the girl, she said the dirtiest thing she ever heard and he was obsessed about knowing what it was. The Oscar winner said it is too dirty to say on television, so she whispered it to him in his ear. He quickly showed his excitement to what she just said and made a dirty hand gesture with his fingers, but I don’t think on purpose.
And the interview just gets better or worse, depending how you look at it, from there. So spend the next 20 minutes watching one of the greatest late night interviews in a while. Plus, you want to see Letterman’s reaction to when she asks him, “You want to get out of here?”
Jennifer Lopez was on The Late Show yesterday and David Letterman was going over all of her perfumes and colognes. The CBS late night host asked her if he could smell one of her colognes and no matter how many times she sprayed it, he wasn’t able to get a whiff of it. He told her to spray it up in the air, but he leaned forward as she did it. Therefore, he got a face full of the stuff and some of it went in to his eyes. His reaction to what just happened is why I am going to miss the man who has been on our TVs for nearly a third of a century.
Mulaney has sadly made us forget what a comedic genius Martin Short truly is; but with one performance on The Late Show with David Letterman, it is all coming back to us. Jiminy Glick sang a song about the plastic surgery celebrities get. It is so scary and yet brilliant, how perfectly he nailed it.
Then at the end of his tune, he debuted his new look if he got all the work, that all of those people got, done. Who do you think he looks like? I want to see if we agree!
Bill Murray was a guest on The Late Show yesterday and he always knows how to make an entrance. Well last night, he made quite an exit. The actor was on the show to promote his movie St Vincent; and just as David Letterman asked him about it, Dr. Peter Venkman stopped him. Bob Wiley told him that he is committed to run in this year’s NYC marathon and he needs to start training for it now. As in right that second, so he got up and left the studio for a run. What happens next is only something Bill Murray could pull off and that is why we love him.
David Letterman is retiring from late night television some time next year, and it appears that he is already looking for his next job. Yesterday on The Late Show he used his time to audition for The Young & The Restless because the CBS late night host heard they were hiring. So how did he do? The CBS soap opera Tweeted this today, “YOU’RE HIRED, DAVE!”
I think he is going to be great as Nikki and Victor’s secret teenage daughter!
Will you watch him on the daytime drama?
Robert Downey Jr is doing press for his new movie The Judge, but all anyone wants to know about is is there going to be an Iron Man 4. So will there be one? Depends what show RDJ is on to get the answer to that question. He told Ellen DeGeneres yes, but he told David Letterman no. So I guess that means we are no closer to an answer than we were before.
Does this mean he is done playing Tony Stark? Doesn’t sound like it because he told The Late Show host that he has signed on to do some more Marvel movies.
I say that since Iron Man has already had 3 movies, it is about time for Howard the Duck got a second one. Who’s with me?
Neil Patrick Harris is on The Late Show tonight and David Letterman asked Doogie Howser about his memoir that is coming out next month. It was then that the How I Met Your Mother star admitted he included the CBS late night host in the book and he thinks of him as a father figure.
Sounds innocent at first, but then he goes on. Harris then reads, “Only a sexy father. So suave, so rakishly handsome. A generous kisser, a generous lover.” Then he continues on as we wish he would, “You might expect him to be more selfish in bed, but no he is very thoughtful. He’s always tending to my needs first.” Then he wrapped it by saying, “The next time I’m on the show, I’m going to find some organic way to tell him how much I appreciate that.”
I think he succeeded. Not only in telling Letterman how he feels about him, but getting us to want to read Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography.
Jack Hanna is always interesting when he is on The Late Show and boy he didn’t disappoint us yesterday. Jungle Jack asked David Letterman if he wanted to ride the camel that he brought out and the CBS late night host was excited to do it. But not as excited as Hanna who was demonstrating how to ride one without a saddle. What happens next might be illegal in some states because I don’t want to know what he was doing to that camel’s hump. What do you think he was doing?
You know it kind of reminds me of that mouse/elephant joke that was told in the movie Center Stage. Don’t know it, then click here!
