Should Kevin Bacon or Dan Chadle be the next Indiana Jones?
July 18th, 2019 under Conan O'Brien, Don Cheadle, Harrison Ford, Kevin Bacon. [ Comments: none ]


Harrison Ford just turned 77 this week, and you can say he might be getting too old to play Indiana Jones. Yesterday on Conan, who is at San Diego Comic-Con this week, decided to hold auditions for his replacement.

Thomas Middleditch (who I am convinced could play Marty Feldman after this), Billy Eichner, Sam Richardson, Adam Scott, Seth Green, Tig Notaro, Mr. Kyra Sedgwick and Dan Chadle all tried out for the part. Kumail Nanjiani would have been considered if he actually showed up. However, he cancelled on Conan O’Brien minutes beforehand.

Anyhoo, of the bunch of them, I am rooting for the guy who could be Footloose around a boulder to take over as Indy. Can you believe with all the movies Bacon and Ford have done, they have never done one together? That needs to change.

Welcome to the Conan-verse!
July 17th, 2019 under Conan O'Brien. [ Comments: none ]


Conan O’Brien is doing his show at San Diego Comic-Com for the fifth time this week and he did a special opening for the event. This year, his story was told like Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Except he was not bitten by a radioactive spider, instead, for him, it was a radioactive party clown at his quinceanera. That moment made him the man that he is today.

Chris Miller and Phillip Lord have given many great productions besides the Oscar-winning movie featured in that opening number. They also are behind 21 Jump Street, The Lego Movies, The Last Man on Earth and Son of Zorn. I think they should turn Conan-verse its own weekly show. Imagine how wacky it will be with the three of them together? Animated gold!

What does Conan O’Brien do when his only guest cancels at the last minute
July 12th, 2019 under Conan O'Brien. [ Comments: none ]




Conan O’Brien’s talk show is only a half-hour long now. That means he only has one guest on each episode. What happens if that one and only guest calls and cancels just 30 minutes before a taping? That is what happened yesterday when Kumail Nanjiani called to say he was stuck in Malibu on the set and would not be able to make it.

What was Conan going to do? Send his staff out onto the Warner Bros lot and force any celeb they see to do the show? It is around 3p on a Wednesday during the summer, Conan is the biggest celebrity on the lot. Which means there are no famous people there.

Now what? Conan had his producer get his assistant, Sona Movsesian, put her in makeup and then rush her towards the stage. She had no idea she was going to be the guest on the show until he called her out while they were taping. What was her reaction? She told her boss, “Oh sh!t, they really ran out of stuff to do.”

Since she has done several bits in the past and traveled with him to Armenia for a special show, she was comfortable in front of the camera. So comfortable she admitted to him she has dreamed of poisoning his food or killing him slowly. After that comment, she then asked him to buy her house. Hard to say to no to someone who asks you that question on camera in front of a packed studio audience. Therefore, he didn’t. However, the TBS host did not say yes either.

After that segment was over, Nanjiani sent over a video explaining what happened. The actor made Thomas Middleditch take the blame and then he agreed it was his co-star’s fault. He never said he was sorry, but Conan thought he did. I am sure this feud is far from over. I cannot wait to see what happens next.

Especially since O’Brien closed out the show with another clip for The Lion King. You see, Nanjiani has a movie coming out today and that Disney movie is not it.

Personally, I think this episode was so much better without Nanjiani. I don’t think he is funny in the least. He comes off as a d!ck, to me. And don’t even get me started on his sh!tty his Twilight Zone episode was. He is flatter than Conan’s butt.

How do think Conan handled it all? I think it was brilliant. Then again, I think he is the best late night host by far. He can do anything. Well, anything but host The Tonight Show. Too soon?

BTWF: Don Cheadle on Fresh Prince of Bel Air
June 18th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Conan O'Brien, Don Cheadle, Will Smith. [ Comments: none ]


Before Don Cheadle was a hotel manager on Golden Palace, he was in 10th grade for the 3rd time on Fresh Prince of Bel Air. He looks the same now as he did when he was 25 in that 1990 episode.

To hear what he told Conon O’Brien how green Will Smith was on the show’s second episode, then click here!
