Crosby, Nash and Fallon? Tune in tonight to get in on this party in the USA

Jimmy Fallon has channeled Neil Young before onstage and on his late-night show on NBC, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. But when have you ever seen him sing alongside the real Crosby and Nash? (Not pictured: Stills) And yet. And yet, Fallon posted this photo and wrote this caption: "Crosby, Nash and I salute Miley tonight on Late Night. #partyUSA" Yeah. I think you know what's going on here. Tune in tonight for Fallon to hear the party for...

What’s your favorite improvised outtake from the movie Bridesmaids?

Did Jon Hamm ever get Kristen Wiig's bra off during their wild sex romp in the movie Bridesmaids? I'm sure you want to know the answer to that. While you're wondering, watch this clip series of outtakes from the hit comedy, in which actors Hamm, Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper improvise lines — which is a style that producer Judd Apatow encourages on set. My money is on the kid, though. Do you need to poop? Roll the clip if you're old enough!...

Listen up! Watch Beardyman freestyle beatbox about “ladyfingers” on Conan in his American TV debut

Watching Beardyman jam with Reggie Watts and Tim Minchin at the 2010 Montreal Just For Laughs festival was a true highlight, but American audiences got their first true glimpse of the Beardyman experience last night on Conan. Beardyman showed his prowess by letting the panelists (in this case, actress Melissa McCarthy) pick the title of a song — "Ladyfingers" — and then asking the audience to shout out two genres of music — he heard bluegrass and jazz. Hit it!   Beardyman's official U.S. tour dates this weekend include a stop at the Electronic Daisy Festival in Orlando, Fla., on May 28, followed by the Detroit Electronic Music Festival on May 29. He may also make a stopover in NYC. So keep your ear to the ground (or your eyes on my site) because you need to see him perform...

Sundance Institute hosts free reading for film adaptation of Mike Birbiglia’s “Sleepwalk With Me”

Mike Birbiglia worked out his first one-man show, Sleepwalk With Me, as stand-up comedy bits, then as short stories for public radio, and eventually a successful Off-Broadway run, book and CD. Now Birbigs is looking to turn it into a feature film. On June 1, you'll be able to get a sense of what that, at least, might sound like, as the Sundance Institute Screenplay Reading Series of Works-in-Progress presents a free reading of Sleepwalk With Me's screenplay. Birbiglia has written and will direct the movie. The reading takes place at 7:30 p.m. June 1, 2011, at The Barrow Street Theatre in New York City's West Village, where Birbigs is wrapping up a successful run of his second Off-Broadway show, My Girlfriend's Boyfriend. Though the event is free, seating is first-come, first-served, and an RSVP is required....

First photos on set of Sean Hayes and the new cast of The Three Stooges

This is your new Larry? Let me clarify for the kids out there who did not have birthday pizza parties at Shakey's while The Three Stooges played in black-and-white on the big screen.   This is Sean Hayes as Larry from the revamped version of The Three Stooges, which The Farrelly Brothers are making into a movie right now in production outside of Atlanta? I guess so. That's Chris Diamantopoulos behind him, as Moe, seen applying eye drops between takes. Will Sasso (not pictured here) plays Curly. I don't know. I'll believe it when I see it. And even though I see this photo, I still don't believe in remaking The Three Stooges with three new guys who weren't already brothers and/or friends. (more...
