In case you didn’t see The Interview, one of the most memorable scenes from it is when James Franco and Randall Park lock lips. Well, for some reason, they didn’t do press for that movie when it came out; so Park was able to finally talk about it now on Conan. Anything we hear about the controversial film now is like it is fresh off the boat, even though it is 9 months after the flick’s release.
Park told the TBS Late night host that as an actor, he didn’t think of the kiss as a big deal. That was until they filmed the scene. Then he said, “When we shot the scene and our lips met, something about that guy is magical.” Then he explained, “I mean, his lips are like really soft and it just stayed with me.” It really stayed with him, so much so he couldn’t stop thinking about it for days. Then as most people, who have that special feeling after a kiss, because we all do, he wondered if Franco felt the same way.
A week went by and Park heard that his co-star painted a painting of him as the North Korean leader. It was then that he got his confirmation that their moment stayed with his kissing partner because look at those lips he painted. I have to say I agree with Park because they really do stand out. Well that, and it looks like nothing like him.
Did you know that there is a huge debate on the website CelebHeights.com on how tall is Jake Gyllenhaal. Starlee King, host of the Mystery Show Podcast, wanted to solve the mystery, so she asked him. The actor told her he is 5’11.5″ and the posters still believe it even though it came from him.
Tonight at 11p on TBS, when Kine was on Conan, O’Brien brought out Gyllenhaal to measure him so that they can end this debate once and for all. Off went the shows, up went the measuring tape and now we know his true height. I think?
I like a world where we debate the height of an actor. Can we be frivolous like this more often? We need to be!
Earlier today, it was revealed that The Pope met with the reprehensible Kim Davis when he was here in the United States. People are disgusted by this revelation, but she might not have been the most controversial person he met with last week. Conan O’Brien got his hands on some photos that prove The Pope met with much worse people, much much worse people. To see who else he broke sacramental bread with, press play.
Then when you are done, run to confession because you are going to feel so guilty for laughing the whole time.
Kristen Schaal was on Conan yesterday to talk about The Last Man on Earth that is back on Fox this Sunday, and she told him about eating crickets on the show. So the TBS host wanted to know if she had to eat real crickets when they filmed the scene. She told him that swallowed about 50-60 of them by the time they were through. Why? As she explained, “I’ll put anything in my mouth for a laugh.”
Then it was time to move on from her to her co-star Will Forte, he asked for the fake crickets to munch on for his scene. They were dates with agave that looked like the real thing and no one told her. Don’t feel too bad for her because by the end of eating all of those buggers, she took a liking to them. So much so, she eats them regularly now and brought some on the TBS talk show for Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter to try. O’Brien wasn’t having any of it, but the sidekick thought he would give it a try. He didn’t mind them, even after she told the weird feeling you get when an antenna gets stuck in your throat. Richter pulled one off of his tongue and he describe it as “like a pube.” Which brings us back how Schaal will put anything in her mouth for a laugh.
BTW I don’t care how yummy they look, there is no way you can get me to eat one. I shudder just thinking about putting the creepy crawly that won’t shut up in my mouth. Would you, could you eat one?
Conan O’Brien prides himself on how his ginger locks always falling perfectly into place. Yesterday, on a special episode of his show full of Scraps aka Outtakes, you got to see the TBS late night host during rehearsal for a taping. I didn’t care what he was saying, all I could do was focus on his messy hair. It was all over the place. So basically he has been lying to us for the last two decades. If he’s lied about this, what else has he lied about? Things that make you go hmmmmm?
Last week, the FDA approved Addyi, the first female Viagra pill. Since the approval is only a week old, no one has had time to come up with a commercial for it. So Conan O’Brien and his team did one for them. After watching it, I can’t wait to use the pill. Ladies, are you with me?
And talking about erections, here’s Jeff Goldblum and Andy Richter talking about if they are circumcised and if they got their sons clipped. It is more than we wanted to know about them.
Someone is actually going to marry Jordan Schlansky and since he has no friends Conan O’Brien threw him a Bachelor Party. You would think he would be happy about that; and you would be wrong because afterall this is Jordan Schlansky and he’s never happy. Even though he wasn’t in to it, the TBS late night host gave it his all. Conan brought in some JÃ¤germeister on the tap, a DJ, a paid-for-the night friend and 2 strippers.
Even though bachelor didn’t enjoy it, it’s the most fun I had a bachelor party where I wasn’t get paid to be there. But that is a whole other story.
Whenever Conan does a bit with his Associate Producer, I wonder why TBS hasn’t given these two their own weekly series. They are a Laurel & Hardy and Abbott & Costello for the modern era. I’d watch them go at over and over again, wouldn’t you?
Sir Patrick Stewart was on Conan yesterday and the TBS late night wanted to know more about a photo that his guest took with Sir Ian McKellen. The two Sirs were photographed sharing a kiss on the lips and O’Brien wanted to know more. Stewart explained that is how they say hello and goodbye to each other. As Conan kept asking more about it and Stewart admitting he would give Sir Sean Connery some tongue, Captain Picard wanted to know if Conan wanted a kiss on his lips. He agreed and the two men shared a lovely lip lock. How lovely? Conan described it as, “That was fantastic!” Then he explained why it was fantastic, “I felt passion. You, you, you’re iconic actor. You are a great man. We kissed. I felt that you suddenly accepted me as your better.” Then after the man who just left him speechless asked him if he felt a connection, Conan said that he did feel one. I felt it through the screen. So much so I wanted to be the Nutella in that sandwich. Didn’t you feel their connection?
And if that is not enough Conan for you, here’s Donald Trump directing the show yesterday on the recently renamed TrumpBS.
Donald Trump running for President is a late night host’s fantasy, and yesterday Conan O’Brien, Seth Meyers and Jimmy Fallon showed us how much of a wet dream it is for them. Deviants! Conan came up with a fake ovulating talking stick that looks and sounds like The Donald on his TBS show. Meyers took to his Late Night to go off on the Presidential candidate for 5 and a half minutes. While Fallon dressed up as Trump on The Tonight Show and explained all things that he didn’t mean to say, even though we all know he did.
When it comes to the funniest, hands down that goes to Conan easily. His was also the sickest and most cringeworthy. Then there is Meyers, who is proving once again he is a great replacement for Jon Stewart. His political monologue is well versed and everyone can learn a thing or two from it. Finally, Fallon is the goofiest and that is alright. That is what he is known for and it works.
I love that they are a making a mockery of Trump, I just wish that there were as many people who were actually supporting him. When he announced he was running for President, I thought it was a great joke that kept on giving, but now it scares me how many people are taking him seriously.
In order to get ready for tonight’s Republican Debate, several of the candidates are using a Trump Bot to prepare for beating Trumo. Up until last night it was secret, but Conan O’Brien got his hands on one and debuted it on his TBS show. I couldn’t believe how life life it looks, but then again everything looks life like as compared to Donald Trump. Even the hair looks more real than The Donald’s, but then again so does an overused bear rug that has never been washed. I could keep going on, but I will let you do it.
BTW is it just me or does the Trump Bot look like a lot like Conan?
