Jimmy Kimmel airs viewers' best April Fools' Day pranks -- VIDEO

Jimmy Kimmel has played some pretty good pranks on unsuspecting victims. But for April Fools’ Day, he asked viewers to channel their own inner Ashton Kutcher and punk their loved ones.

Kimmel and his staffers compiled some of the best submissions for their latest YouTube challenge in the following clip. Looks like Kimmel fans have a penchant for torturing their children with false information, from the poor kid who thinks he won an awesome prize from Legoland to the little boy who thinks his Xbox has been sold.

Jimmy Kimmel pranks wannabe music snobs at SXSW -- VIDEO

Hipsters, beware — music festival-goers are becoming a favorite target of Jimmy Kimmel.

In front of an audience at SXSW in Austin last night — Jimmy Kimmel Live has been taping from the festival since Monday — the late-night host noted that “people who come to music festivals pride themselves on knowing who the new acts are, even if they don’t know who the new acts are.” To prove his point, Kimmel sent a “Lie Witness News” camera crew into the streets of Austin to ask music fans their thoughts on totally made up artists, including Contact Dermatitis, Neil Patrick Harassment, female rappers Heavy Flow, and a whole slew of geeky Game of Thrones-inspired bands, including Daenerys Targaryen and the Dragon Ponies.

Seth Rogen and Jimmy Kimmel find romance in 'True Detective 2' trailer -- VIDEO

Jimmy Kimmel’s never been one to pass up the opportunity to kiss Seth Rogen — and with the ending of True Detective‘s first season, he realized that such an opportunity was within his reach.

As fans of the show know, neither Matthew McConaughey nor Woody Harrelson will be back for the HBO show’s second season, which leaves the door open for some newcomers. Enter Rogen and Kimmel.

In Kimmel’s Austin-set trailer for True Detective 2, Rogen takes on the McConaughey-inspired, beard-ridden role of a man who once ate an entire Cosco-sized bottle of Tylenol PM. Meanwhile, Kimmel is the cleaned-up partner who can’t stop thinking about the person who once defaced a frog mural. Together, the cops enjoy quoting Cher and singing “Time After Time.” Oh, and kissing, obviously.

Watch Kimmel’s trailer for True Detective 2 below:

Rob Ford talks Toronto, his diet, and drinking too much on 'Jimmy Kimmel' -- VIDEO

When Toronto mayor Rob Ford decided to give out his real phone number to anyone who wanted it, Jimmy Kimmel had an idea. He called the mayor — and to his surprise, Ford picked up the phone. Even more surprising: Ford agreed to come on Kimmel’s show. And what happened next was just as uncomfortable to watch as it was entertaining.

Part one of Ford’s late-night appearance featured Ford reassuring his “customers” that if they called him, he would come. And “you’d be surprised how fast I can move.” Kimmel, for his part, cut right to the chase, asking Ford if he’s homophobic and insulting his awful tie selections:

Jimmy Kimmel pulls off Sochi wolf prank

And Sochi thought stray dogs were bad. American luger Kate Hansen tweeted a video of a wolf– yes, a real live wolf– roaming the hallway of her Sochi dorm and set off a media storm. But turns out Sochi doesn’t have a stray wolf problem (at least not that we know of) and resident late night prankster Jimmy Kimmel is actually the man behind it.

Hansen joined Jimmy Kimmel Live last night via Skype to reveal how the two pulled it off. “Honestly, there was a little bit more backlash than I thought there would be,” Hansen admitted. Apparently security beefed up because there was “a breach within athlete safety,” but they “handled it.”

So how’d they do it? Hansen sent Kimmel’s team a photo of her dorm hallway so they could build an entire replica of her hallway in the L.A. studio. Then they brought in a Timber Wolf mix named Rugby who played the role of stray wolf by roaming the fake hallway. Watch the entire clip below to see Kimmel’s interview with Hansen and the now-famous wolf: READ FULL STORY

June Squibb and Matthew McConaughey talk Oscars on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' -- VIDEO

June Squibb isn’t above using her age to get her ahead– or at least that’s the message the 84-year-old actress sent in a gag that aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. READ FULL STORY

Nathan Fielder talks Dumb Starbucks shutdown on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Nathan Fielder, the comedian behind Dumb Starbucks, went on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to talk about his new business venture, Dumb Starbucks grande in hand.

Like any new business, Dumb Starbucks already has its struggles. While the store was operating completely legally thanks to parody law, the health department shut it down for selling coffee without a health permit. “What they don’t understand is, technically, legally speaking, we’re an art gallery, and the coffee we’re selling is considered the art, and art galleries don’t need health permits,” Fielder said. If the health department doesn’t buy this explanation, Fielder and company could face up to six months in jail. Talk about suffering for your “art.” READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel playfully slams Matt Damon -- VIDEO

Matt Damon just can’t catch a break from Jimmy Kimmel. “Sincere apologies to Matt Damon; we ran out of time for him tonight,” he once ended an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!… and then ended multiple more shows like that, making the Oscar-winner the butt of a long-running joke.

Damon “took over” the show last year to get back at Kimmel, beginning his monologue with, “Welcome to tonight’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Sucks.” He then asked the audience, “Is it weird to see a person with actual talent host this show?” Burn.

But the friendly feud continues. Last night, Kimmel welcomed the star-studded cast of The Monuments Men, including Damon. He introduced Damon last, saying, “I’m being told we have to bring out our next guest. Our next guest is an actor at best who only has one Oscar. He’s here because the band didn’t show up. Please welcome, the least of the Monuments Men, Matt Damon.”

Damon came out to find no seats available for him and when he asked about the lack of seating, Kimmel tried to ignore the request and continued interviewing the other actors. “Was he like this the whole time on the set?” he asked the rest of the cast, as Guillermo brought Damon a baby chair.

“Now a lot of people said Matt Damon didn’t have the chops to be, you know, acting-wise to be part of a group like this,” Kimmel said to George Clooney. Damon shot back, “Nobody said that, what are you talking about?” Clooney started to reply when Kimmel interrupted: “No, I didn’t expect an answer, I just wanted to get that on the record — that a lot of people said that.”

Clooney then gets in on the ragging, and Cate Blanchett even made a joke at the actor’s expense. When Kimmel pointed out that Blanchett shares most of her scenes with Damon, she commented, “I have great respect for the work of the Make-A-Wish foundation.” She then ruffled Damon’s hair, because no one can be mad at you if you ruffle their hair. Or maybe that just applies to Cate Blanchett.

Ashton Kutcher wants Charlie Sheen to shut up -- VIDEO

Apparently we’re not the only ones tired of Charlie Sheen. In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night, Ashton Kutcher issued a public plea to Sheen: “Dude, shut the f*** up,” Kutcher said as he looked straight into the camera. “Like, enough already. Like it’s three years later and you’re still blowing me up on Twitter. Come on, dude! Really?”

By “three years later,” he means it’s been about three years since Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men and replaced by Kutcher. Turns out Kutcher wasn’t kidding about the tweets — Sheen posted this gem Jan. 6:
