Jimmy Kimmel honors Charles Ramsey with fake trailer for History channel doc -- VIDEO

Charles Ramsey — the man who is simultaneously famous for eating a Big Mac, rescuing three women from a presumed decade in captivity, and giving television interviews like it was “an evening at the Apollo” — has already been fêted with an Autotuning, multiple talk show spotlights, and (now) an ad for a cable TV special, courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel. As the late-night host explained, “A star has been born.” A star who says some “hilarious s—.”

Check out the deep-voiced voice-over treatment below.

Gary Busey auditions for the Mars reality show on 'Kimmel' -- VIDEO

When news broke that there was going to be a reality show where people traveled to Mars to establish a human settlement in 2023, lots of people joked about who they would want to send up there. Well, Jimmy Kimmel has a suggestion. On his show last night, Kimmel showed the ”first official video application” for the Mars program. Wearing a tin foil hat, a shirt with the word Mars on it, and a purple cape, Gary Busey hummed and danced around a miniature solar system, claiming he should be one of the lucky few that gets to go to Mars… because he’s been there before.

”When you find yourself eating part of your calf muscle, you should not be on Mars!” Busey said. So true.

Harrison Ford gives Chewbacca a piece of his mind on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Harrison Ford dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to talk about his latest hit movie, 42, but Kimmel couldn’t resist asking the legendary actor about his involvement in another buzzed-about project, the hotly anticipated new Star Wars movie. When Ford declined to answer, Kimmel asked if he could turn the questions over to the audience, which the bristly star agreed to on one condition – no Star Wars questions.

Things were immediately awkward, with audience members dressed as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia forced to think fast and pose non-Star Wars questions, but the Q&A took a brutal turn when Ford’s furry former co-star Chewbacca stepped up to the mic.

“You son of a b**ch, what do you want?” Ford roared from the stage. “You’d like that, wouldn’t you? Always trying to blame me. You’re the one who couldn’t keep it in your furry pants!”

When Kimmel added that “he doesn’t wear pants,” Ford replied, “I rest my case!”

Kimmel tried to get to the root of the pair’s falling-out, but all Ford would say was, “He knows what he did. She was my wife, you Wookie sack of s**t!”

Not long after, Ford declared, “I’m outta here!” and stormed out of the studio. On his way out, he offered a parting thought for Chewie: “And you, I’ll see you in hell!”

Check out the clearly staged-but-nonetheless hilarious exchange below. READ FULL STORY

Tom Cruise delivers ridiculous one-liners on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' -- VIDEO

Tom Cruise is a “no kidding around movie star,” as Jimmy Kimmel pointed out (a few times!) when Cruise stopped by last night to promote his latest blockbuster, Oblivion. Hoping to have a little fun with Mr. Movie Star, Kimmel gave Cruise a series of random lines to read in a “dramatic movie star way.”

The one-liners were, of course, absurd and were accompanied by dramatic lighting and borderline sinister music. The actor was a good sport, giving lines like “Is there a way to get the soup and the salad?” and “You forgot to include the attachment” his all. He skipped only one: “April in accounting needs you to update your W-2s.”

A perfectionist even in an impromptu skit, Cruise insisted a few times that he could deliver the line better and that on film sets he gets a “couple of takes.” Check out his ridiculous one-liners below. READ FULL STORY

Jason Bateman explains 'Arrested Development' 'hybrid package' to Jimmy Kimmel -- VIDEO

Arrested Development fans are counting down the days (only 45 to go!) until its 15-episode fourth season premieres on Netflix, and last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jason Bateman went into detail about how the new episodes will differ from those that aired during the cult classic sitcom’s initial 2003-06 run on Fox.

On Kimmel to promote his new film Disconnect, Bateman told the host, “I want people to manage their expectations. They are great episodes, but what they are not are episodes like it was when it was on that other network [Fox].”

Bateman went on to explain that the narrative writer/creator Mitchell Hurwitz conceived for the planned Arrested Development movie was too expansive, so he broke the plot of film’s first act into the episodes that will air on Netflix.

“We were supposed to do a movie, and we still very well might. But every time the showrunner tried to put this big story that he wants to do in this movie in a movie script, which can only be like 110 pages, it got too big. So what he thought was, I’ll put the first act of this three-act story in these episodes,” Bateman explained. “So each character gets their own episode and all the action happens at the same time, so it can only really work on Netflix, where these episodes are released on the same day. So like, you can stop my episode if you see Gob [Will Arnett] run by on his Segway, you can stop mine, click over into his, watch where he’s going because all the action happens at the same time ’cause it’s all just act one. And in the movie it’s going to be act 2 and act 3, so it’s like a hybrid package.”

Kimmel joked that he might need Bateman to “sit with me” to understand the new episodes, which will be available in full on Netflix beginning May 26. “Yeah,” the actor quipped, “the country is not really going to put out a lot of work that day.”

Watch Bateman talk Arrested Development, as well as the slightly disturbing method he uses to cry on camera, below.

Late Night Wars redux: Who will you watch at 11:30? -- VOTE

Less than one year from now, Jimmy Fallon will inherit late night TV’s most highly-coveted showcase: The Tonight Show.

Though the road to yesterday’s official announcement was a bumpy one — ousted host Jay Leno’s been joking about being knifed in the back by the snakes at NBC for weeks — the dust now seems to have cleared. Everyone from ABC rival Jimmy Kimmel to ex-Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien has issued congratulations to Fallon, a performer who seems to personify amiability. Even Leno tempered his barbs last night, calling Fallon “a hell of a guy” and saying that he’ll do “a great job.”

So now that the succession plan is settled, we can start to focus on what’s really important: which guy we’ll be watching come February 2014.  READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel debuts trailer for 'Zero Dark Flirty' -- VIDEO

If the widely talked about torture scenes kept you from seeing Zero Dark Thirty, Jimmy Kimmel has just the movie for you. Well, sort of.

Last night, Kimmel revealed his suggestion for Zero Dark Thirty‘s post-Oscars marketing strategy in order to get the faint-of-heart into theaters to see the political thriller. In the trailer for Zero Dark Flirty, the movie is advertised as a love story between Jessica Chastain’s character and the one man she can’t seem to find — her one true love, Osama bin Laden.

Set to “You Can’t Hurry Love,” the trailer explains that “sometimes it’s good to be a little bit Abbottabad.” Watch it below: READ FULL STORY

James Franco arrives to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' by hot air balloon -- VIDEO

Much like the Wizard of Oz himself, James Franco really has no idea how to control a hot air balloon.

Franco made a grand entrance to Jimmy Kimmel Live, floating in by hot air balloon. Well, really the balloon was already tied down and they just lowered it a couple of feet so Franco could step out of it. The balloon, of course, was emblazoned with the title of Franco’s new movie, Oz The Great and Powerful, and its release date (March 8). 

Here’s hoping that Franco’s hilarious grandmother, who he introduced on the show, makes it in the film. According to Franco, when she visited the set she was dressed as “one of the townspeople in Glinda’s kingdom.”

His grandmother joked, “All of my jealous friends were sure I was a munchkin.”

Christoph Waltz teaches us the sweaty art of seduction on 'Jimmy Kimmel' -- VIDEO

The art of seduction isn’t hard to master — as long as you’re a handsome, cultured, multilingual Oscar winner like Christoph Waltz. But thanks to the actor’s new (fake) guide to pickup artistry, even regular, American-accented Joe Hamburgers can learn how to seduce and destroy like ladies’ man Waltz.

The method is a simple three-pronged plan, easily absorbed by buying Waltz’s 30-DVD, nine-book course (also comes with a bottle of the Django Unchained star’s own pit sweat; only €69, or $91.95!). Of course, you could also just skip all that and get your Valentine’s Day started right by watching the video below.

Jessica Alba runs a kissing booth on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' -- VIDEO

Some of the loneliest perverts in Hollywood assembled last night to compete for the chance to smooch Jessica Alba under the most normal circumstances possible — while she stood in a “celebrity kissing booth,” encased by four walls of protective plastic. Still, the experience seemed worth it for the lucky three — two women and one man — who managed to actually get thisclose to the Escape from Planet Earth star’s mouth.

The whole bit made last night’s edition of Live! feel like a revival of Jimmy Kimmel’s old Man Show on Comedy Central. (That tone persisted later in the evening, when guest Bobby Flay stopped by to reveal how to make the perfect burger.) Recreate the kissing booth experience below by pressing “play,” then pucker up for your computer screen:
