Quentin Tarantino to direct Conan O'Brien in 'Late Shift 2: The Rolling Thunder of Revenge'

As guest Quentin Tarantino told Conan O’Brien last night, the comedy gods have been dancing an Irish jig since Conan started letting loose on NBC on The Tonight Show. (Last night’s digs were bilingualvisual, and involved Norm Macdonald, who must be funnier than I think he is.) As for what Conan should do next, Tarantino suggested a sequel to the 1996 TV movie The Late Shift: He’d call it Late Shift 2: The Rolling Thunder of Revenge. He even performed the trailer’s voiceover, which made me think that Tarantino should be the voice of every preview… Enjoy it below.

NBC has confirmed O’Brien’s guest list for his remaining episodes: Adam Sandler, Joel McHale and musical guest Joss Stone drop by tonight; Robin Williams and musical guest Barry Manilow on Thursday; and Tom Hanks and Will Ferrell on Friday. Which of them are you most looking forward to?

    Oh Adam Sandler- hands down. He’s funny and not afraid to go for it.

  • alex

    definitely NOT robin williams.. he recycles the same tired jokes and weak impressions every time he appears on a damn show.
    not that i’m a HUGE fan, but the guy who can probably provide the funniest analysis is McHale.. think he’ll hold back, being an NBC employee?

    • Alan of Montreal

      I doubt it–Community is an NBC show, isn’t it?

  • Lay Jeno

    Will Ferrell. I can already hear him, “It seems like it was just a few months ago that I was sitting here as your first guest….”

  • Michael

    Sad to see Conan leaving. I’m waiting to see Tom Hanks and maybe Will Ferrel. Adam Sandler is a huge joke and I’m not looking forward to see him.

    • skiiboski

      but you will watch, won’t you?

    • me

      Remember last time Tom Hanks was on? That huge prop was set up to hit him… it turned out really funny.

    • James

      “Adam Sandler is a huge joke…”

      Yeah, that’s kind of the point. You gettin’ it now?

  • Meg

    Joel McHale!

    • BLM

      Funny AND yummy!

    If you don’t already understand what makes Norm Macdonald hilarious, there’s probably no helping you. Some people just don’t get him.

    • jims

      dirty work is one of the most underappreciated comedies ever…

      • wade

        one of my all time favorites

  • Scott P

    I just need to see Triumph before he leaves. The Masturbating Bear wouldn’t hurt either…

  • Lee

    Howard Stern should have put his money where his mouth is and gone to LA to do the show.

    • Janizzle

      You never know….Conan said there will be lots of surprises in this last week!

      • RiverBottom Nightmare Band

        I think it should happen. Hopefully, it will.

    • Soul Stryka

      Howard Stern is a punk, he’s afraid to fly a plane, hopefully he stays off TV

  • Janitor

    Adam Sandler. I’m not really a fan of his movies, in fact I avoid them altogether. But as a talk show guest he ALWAYS brings his A-game, especially for Conan

  • Top

    Well, Conan will be able to say they fired him when he was on top.

  • Moss

    It still cracks me up that after each Conan clip NBC STILL puts up “The tonight show with Conan…weeknights at 11:35/etc.” NBC is nuts.

  • jay

    Well three days til I am done with late night NBC. Will watch Letterman until Conan lands somewhere. Letterman said it perfectly…if you show gets canceled, you go find another job. Show the network what they are missing. You don’t linger around waiting for your time again. Shame on you Leno…if you had no animosity towards Conan, you would have graciously accepted failure and moved on even though NBC offered a half hour show.

    • Lay Jeno

      Yeah, shame on Jay Leno for taking a job he was offered. Man what a jerk. While we’re at it, I think Conan should really show NBC up and not take their money.

  • jay

    dammit…i hit post by mistake. LOL

    Leno has just revealed what a opportunist his is. He manipulative and just plain ol’ scum. Maybe Howard (Stern) has some new bits you can copy upon your return.

  • cindy

    Will Ferrell hands down! he would to be a hilarious final guest for Conan — Love u Coco!! Going sail around the caribean somewhere for a few months, you deserve it.

  • Kirk

    Tom Hanks and Will Ferrell on the last show is the one I’m excited for. Hopefully Tom hangs around for Ferrell’s segment.
