Truly the Time of Their Lives

James Corden is starting to grow on me as a perfectly fine late night television host on The Late Late Show.

He's a decent joketeller, and handles interviews well.

But some of the stunts and skits he puts together and pulls off are as good as some of the things Jimmy Fallon's doing on The Tonight Show.

Check out this little farewell he did with Idina Menzel at the end of last week.

That Was Then, This is Later

David Letterman is wrapping up his 33-year career in late night television this month, so a lot of A-list guests are being crammed into the final shows.

Steve Martin is one of them - a frequent guest and friend of Dave's.

He visited the Late Show with David Letterman a couple of days ago, and showed a couple of videos he'd compiled as an homage to his friend - one showing selections from his past, and one showing what his life will be like post-retirement.

Grab the tissues, folks!

May the Geek Be With You

Monday, May 4th is semi-officially designated as Star Wars Day.

Why? Because "May the Fourth" Be With You.

Get it?

Anyway, to celebrate, a group of fans built an $800 Lego Star Destroyer, and then destroyed it, dropping it nose-first onto a floor while filming the destruction in slow motion.

They even point out the demise of the Imperial representatives aboard the craft.

Yup, that's Geek to the Ultimate Power.

More Than Words - Take 2

Earlier this week on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black did a shot-for-shot recreation of the music video for Extreme's "More Than Words."

They do a pretty decent job with the song. Check it out.

It's even more impressive when you compare it to the original. Pretty amazing.

Awkward with a Capital Awk

Danielle Perez dreamed of being a contestant on The Price is Right.

That happened.

She dreamed of winning and getting onto a showcase.

That happened too.

And then she won the showcase too - featuring a sauna and a treadmill.


Except Danielle has no legs and is in a wheelchair.

You think maybe the folks at TPIR could have taken a moment to switch out the showcase...?

Um, What the HECK Just Happened?

Imagine you're minding your own business, maybe driving down the street, maybe taking a walking tour of historic Boston...

And suddenly, some guy in this tighty whities and maybe a pair of shoes starts dancing in a semi-insane manner in front of you.

That's what happened in some towns in Massachusetts while a band called Binary Finary recorded what appears to be a music video...?

Give it a look - just be careful that no one important's looking over your shoulder.

Stunt Impossible?

The latest offering in the Mission: Impossible franchise (Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation) comes out at the end of this month.

From the trailer, it seems like more of the same.

Impossible MIssion Forces led by Tom Cruise, working on the outside of the agency that's supposed to employ them.

Lots of action, and plenty of things blowing up.

But check out the stunt at the end of the trailer, with Tom hanging onto the outside of a plane as it takes off.

The buzz is that Tom did that stunt for real, on his own.

I hope someone got a shot of his insurance agent's face while that was going on, don't you?

Idina's Kid Hates "Let It Go!"

Idina Menzel visited Ellen the other day and naturally, the conversation turned to Frozen, the animated movie where she plays the part of Elsa, the snow queen.

She of course sings the movie's big song, "Let It Go!"

And she revealed to Ellen that her son really doesn't like it when she sings that song. In fact, she says he hates it.

But it's sort of her bread and butter, and she'll be singing it on her upcoming world tour.

She demonstrated how she'll sing it in Japanese, and after a couple of false starts, she did a pretty good job with it.

Check out the video.

What if Westeros Had Cellular Service?

The folks at Entertainment Weekly keep track of all forms of entertainment - movies, television, live events and more.

In season, it seems like Game of Thrones is one of the magazine's favorite shows, and they do love to poke their fun.

Check out this very funny episode of Game of Phones - imaging how King Tommen might manage his kingdom on a cell phone.

If you haven't seen this week's episode yet, don't pay too close attention to the text messages - there's a spoiler or two in there.

But by the seven gods, this is funny stuff!

Now This is a Birth Announcement

By now, we all know that Prince William and Duchess Kate welcomed a baby girl into the world over the weekend.

And we all know her name is Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

Signed, sealed, delivered. Godspeed and all that, what?

But here, for me, is the coolest part about the royal birth.

It was announced by an official town crier.

Dressed in old-style finery and holding a scroll, the crier stood on the hospital steps and made the official announcement.

And I don't care, but I think that's pretty darn cool!

How old school! Town crier Tony Appleton announces the birth of Duchess Kate's baby girl at St. Mary's Hospital in London.
