Aaron Paul shares details of his 'Breaking Bad' scavenger hunt

The 2014 Emmys were a day of celebration for many actors, showrunners, writers, and other TV folk. But for Breaking Bad‘s crew, it was the final stop on their journey—which came long after they’d originally said goodbye to their show. So to celebrate the series one final time, Aaron Paul decided to throw one of his infamous scavenger hunts in L.A. place just hours before the awards show. He told fans via social media where they could find Breaking Bad memorabilia—and in at least one case, a Breaking Bad actor holding said memorabilia.

On Thursday, Paul went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the hunt. It all started when the actor walked into what’s probably the world’s coolest closet—full of scripts, Jesse Pinkman’s license plate (THE CAPN!), a Lily of the Valley plant (poor Brock!), and more—then scattered the goods around L.A. On the day of the hunt, he sent thousands of fans to a local IHOP, shamed a few cheaters, then forced a guy with asthma to chase him through a park. We’d like to think Jesse’s doing the same right now. Well, exactly the same—but at least running free.

Fred Willard isn't pleased with Jimmy Kimmel's proposed Redskins name change

The bottom line about the Washington Redskins, according to Jimmy Kimmel: “We got used to [the name] because it’s been around for a long time, but it’s a racial slur.” Wednesday, however, may have marked the beginning of the end. That’s when the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office canceled the team’s trademarks for being offensive to Native Americans. Naturally, the team plans to appeal the decision—but if it’s upheld, the embattled franchise could lose control of its brand.

Thankfully, Kimmel has an easy fix: Just add an “f” in front of the word “Redskins,” officially changing the team’s name to the “Fredskins.” There; that’s not offensive to anybody, right? READ FULL STORY

NYC Mayor sings 'I Love LA' after losing a bet over the Stanley Cup Finals

It looks like another perfect day — for Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday, Jimmy Kimmel revealed the terms of a bet between the L.A. leader and New York City’s mayor, Bill de Blasio, over the results of the Stanley Cup Finals. If the Rangers won, Mayor Garcetti would have to sing “New York, New York” on the show. If the Kings won — and they did — Mayor de Blasio would sing “I Love LA.”

50 Cent parodies 'Maleficent' in faux Disney trailer -- VIDEO

Maleficent, 50 Cent — it’s a match made in pun heaven.

The rapper stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to premiere a trailer for what he jokingly called his latest project, a spoof on Disney film Maleficent featuring 50 Cent as the title villain. “This one ain’t going to no Redbox,” 50 told Kimmel.

50 Cent replaces Angelina Jolie in the clip as Maleficent — sorry, Malefiftycent — and, of course, makes sure to mention his biggest claim to fame: “I’ve been shot nine times, I’m not afraid of no little white girl.”

Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts, Emma Stone, more read mean tweets about themselves -- VIDEO

Julia Roberts’ gigantic mouth looks like it will devour an elephant in one bite. Mindy Kaling is not funny or attractive; she has an annoying voice and just plainly sucks. Emma Stone looks like she smells like cat piss. Matthew McConaughey, quite plainly, is a d–k turd.

All these things are true… according to citizens of Twitter, anyway. They’re each included in Jimmy Kimmel’s latest installment of “Mean Tweets,” which asks famous people to read the nasty stuff that normos are writing about them on the internet. It’s tough to say who wins this round: Gary Oldman, who can barely keep it together? Sofia Vergara, who has a snappy retort to the troll slagging off on her? David Blaine, who accidentally proves his detractor right? No, wait, I know the answer: It’s June Squibb. Why? Just watch.

Which actress can fit everything she owns in a suitcase, is quasi-homeless? (Shailene Woodley, obviously) -- VIDEO

Shailene Woodley eats clay, makes her own medicine, and is a lucid dreaming enthusiast — but what Jimmy Kimmel cares about is how much she can fit in her luggage.

“Everything that I own and use are in a carry-on suitcase,” Woodley told a shocked Kimmel Thursday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Stewart, Kimmel, Fallon talk Solange/Jay Z elevator fight -- VIDEO

TMZ released video footage of Solange Knowles attacking brother-in-law Jay Z in an elevator as Beyonce stood by — and naturally, the media was on it.

The video came out Monday, and since then, cable talking heads have been tirelessly trying to figure out what caused the incident — because, apparently, there’s nothing better to talk about. Jon Stewart mocked all the coverage of the elevator affair on The Daily Show Wednesday night, showing clips from outlets like CNN and Fox News and poking fun at their baseless theories — including that Jay Z has been cheating on Beyoncé, and the mogul wanted to ditch his wife and her sis to go to Rihanna’s party after the Met Gala. “With all these incredibly well-sourced motives, I can’t believe Solange didn’t spend the entire Met Ball kicking Jay Z in the face,” Stewart said. “Why wait until the elevator?”

Sally Field takes down Julia Roberts in Celebrity Curse-Off -- VIDEO

Sally Field may be known as The Flying Nun, or her current role as Aunt May in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but the two-time Oscar winner sure has a potty mouth!

Field was reunited with her Steel Magnolias daughter Julia Roberts on Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! for the first ever Celebrity Curse-Off! The rules are simple: Each contestant has five seconds to say the most obscene thing they can think of. Obviously, most of the answers were censored for TV, but you can definitely tell that Ms. Field’s vocabulary is much more expansive (and vulgar) than you may think. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

How each late night host tackled the Donald Sterling scandal -- VIDEO

Billionaire Donald Sterling made headlines last week when TMZ posted audio recordings of the Los Angeles Clippers owner making racist comments. Specifically, the audio captures Sterling telling his mistress that he doesn’t want her associating with black people in public and asking her not to bring “them” to his games.

Everyone from President Obama to Snoop Dogg have offered their two cents on the controversy — and on Monday night, it was late night’s turn. See what each host had to say about Sterling, including what kind of animal he resembles, below:
