On Letterman tonight! Matt and Trey use “Charlie Sheen” defense for their South Park Oscar fashions

Matt Stone and Trey Parker are on tonight's episode of Late Show with David Letterman to promote their new Broadway musical, The Book of Mormon (it's in previews until March 24). But since it's the day after the Academy Awards, Letterman just had to remind them about the time they were nominated for Best Song at the Oscars for their South Park movie, and their decision to wear infamous outfits previously worn at awards ceremonies by Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow. Turns out they have a timely defense. They were on drugs, and those drugs were Charlie Sheen! Roll the clip:   Related: Get info on The Book of Mormon, now on...

Post-Oscars Jimmy Kimmel: Hottie Body Hump Club, Tom Hanks in Toddlers & Tiaras, and Mike Tyson

If the 83rd annual Academy Awards left much to be desired, then you were rewarded for sticking around to see the special post-show edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live. First, Kimmel tapped several hot actresses to appear in his seven-minute infomercial for his "Hottie Body Hump Club" to hump big balls. Literally. Featuring Scarlett Johansson, Minka Kelly, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Kelly Ripa, Eva Longoria, Emily Blunt and Sofia Vergara. Possibly some of Alba's finest acting since Honey! Oh, and Lindsay Lohan appeared and let Kimmel joke about her ongoing felony theft case! Also: Someone find out what kind of tanning spray Jimmy used on his legs. Roll it.   Then he had Mike Tyson offer his own speech therapy, a la big Oscar-winning film The King's Speech, to former President George W. Bush. Because, of course, when you think of our nation's great speakers, you think of Iron Mike Tyson. Naturally.   But the piece de resistance may have been Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks in a short film showing off his "daughter" Sophie in their attempt to win a Toddlers-and-Tiaras beauty pageant. Look out for extra celebrity cameos! "Oh, now don't be a Hooch!" Roll the clip....
