The Tonight Show

The announcement that 20th Century Fox was willing to bet on the fan excitement over Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien art project came as kind of a shocking. Welcoming news for sure, but kind of surprising. At this point though, any tangible news about Blomkamp’s Alien counts only as idle speculation, but that’s not to say that we shouldn’t expect people to start coming out of the woodwork to lay their claim to a piece of it. Enter Louis CK. That Louis CK? Yes, the comedian, through a very trusted source, has let the world know that not only is he interested in appearing in the new Alien movie, but he has a very specific role in mind for himself.

So I owe someone in middle school an apology, it turns out Bayside High is a real place, and Jimmy Fallon was a student there. For no other reason other than because he can, Fallon hosted an ad hoc class reunion of the gang from Saved by the Bell on NBC‘s The Tonight Show. I believe this has been a proverbial bee in Fallon’s bonnet for a while, dating back to his days hosting Late Night. So now, either because the stars alligned or because nobody could think of a good enough excuse to get out it, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and Elizabeth Berkley all joined Jimmy for a little reminiscing about the good old days at Bayside.

Pee-Wee-Herman

The Nerd Bastards site and Facebook page blew up last week when Paul Reubens announced that another Pee Wee Herman movie was in the works. Fans have been waiting a long time and the talk of another movie was beginning to take on a Ghostbuster 3 vibe, meaning that we’d hear a lot of sporadic talk for the last three years, but nothing would ever happen. Reubens made an appearance on the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night to talk more about the movie and drop a couple more important details. (more…)

If you’d told me back in 1986 that James Spader and Robert Downey Jr. would be boss characters in a SECOND ‘Avengers’ movie, I’d have had to toss cherry Slurpees on your head from the mall balcony. There’s just no way you can predict things things. As perfect as Spader is for the role of Ultron in the new ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ blockbuster extravaganza (calling it already), I still see him as that douchebag Steff from ‘Pretty In Pink.’ Screw Robert California, Alan Shore and ‘The Blacklist.’ That dude is Steff! And Steff was on ‘The Tonight Show’ the other night talking to Fallon about Comic Con. And according to him, director Joss Whedon’s version of Ultron is like one of those giants from ‘Clash Of Clans.’

If there’s been an overriding theme to all the trailers and videos relating to the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie so far, it’s been that Megan Fox doesn’t talk. Considering that Fox plays the highly pivotal role of April O’Neil, the Turtles’ first human friend, and ostensibly the main character in the film, that’s kind of weird. Now, I think we all know that when Megan Fox opens her mouth, controversy sometimes follows, so maybe it’s for the best that we haven’t heard April talk. Until now. In the first clip from the film, April talks about the unusual situation she finds herself in concerning New York’s newest heroes, and Fox gives it all of her somewhat limited acting ability.

They say that the laughter of a child is the world’s greatest sound so Jeremy and Jason finally sent out an invite to perpetual bratty teenager AJ Wiley and his legal guardian/handler/pimp Paul Smith from the Gobbledygeek Podcast and they suspiciously accepted. Come for the dinosaur donkey punch, stay for the inhumane sleep deprivation and madness cackles because we recorded for 7 hours till the crack of dawn and this is the best 75 minutes of it. On the show we… (more…)
