Tonight, Jimmy Kimmel debuted a music video for the vaguely explicit slow jam “(I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum,” featuring White House Down costars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, along with Miley Cyrus, Olivia Munn, and Gabourey Sidibe. Don’t blink or you’ll miss the Matt Damon cameo. READ FULL STORY

Will Smith obviously wasn’t thrilled with After Earth‘s box office take last weekend (it opened in third place with $27.5 million). But you don’t become one of the most charismatic actors of your generation by not knowing how to get an audience on your side — which is exactly what Smith did when he swung by Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night last night. After some pleasant chat about basketball (Smith is a partial owner of the Philadelphia 76ers), talk naturally turned to After Earth‘s disappointing weekend.
“Here’s how I think of it, Jimmy,” Smith said with a laugh. “Three is the new one.You know how many ones it takes to make a three?”
Smith went on to explain that obviously the news he was getting from his people on Sunday weren’t his favorite phone calls. “You get the [box office] information moment by moment,” he explained. “Someone is calling you every hour and I was like, ‘Uh oh.’ I felt like a fighter. It’s been over two decades since I’ve had a movie that wasn’t at number one. …That’s over now, buddy! Thanks!”

Arvind Mahankali, the 13-year-old from New York who won the 86th Scripps National Spelling Bee last week, visited Jimmy Kimmel Live last night for what should have been a victory appearance. Instead, Kimmel — as is the tradition — challenged him to the 10th Annual Jimmy Kimmel Live Spelling Bee.
For a kid who just won national admiration for correctly spelling “knaidel,” Mahankali may have a bit harder of a time beating Kimmel than viewers might expect. For one thing, Mahankali gets a serious case of the g-i-g-g-l-e-s when Guillermo Rodriguez shows up dressed as an actual bee. For another, Rodriguez takes some creative license with the pronunciation clues. It’s anyone’s game now!

Baby Wesley is Jimmy Kimmel’s nephew, lives with his parents, has some cool dinosaur toys, and is looking for love. So Kimmel decided to make Wesley the first ever Baby Bachelor. The first episode is below and is filled with adorable kids saying adorable things. For the most part, Wesley is a gentleman, opening doors for the ladies, grabbing their hands, and giving one a kiss on the cheek when she’s crying. Still, when a beautiful blonde shows up, who is 316 months old, he can’t help but be intrigued. “I’d like to get the big girl,” Wesley says.
Everyone has ideas for the new Star Wars movies! So, when J.J. Abrams stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel thought it might fun to ask the audience for some suggestions for the new sequels.
The first two guys are in costume and both feel strongly that, “Leia and Chewie need to do it!” The second, who we’ll assume works for Kimmel, really deserves our respect. Talking to J.J. Abrams is a nice perk of the job, but not many guys would go so far as wearing Leia’s gold bikini on national TV.
The third “audience member” is Billy Dee Williams, who played Lando Calrissian in the original trilogy. He suggests, “Two hours of Lando and beautiful ladies making love, sweet love, in the galaxy.”
We’ll let you be surprised by the last guy. Fair warning though, he has a rather crude drawing of Leia and Chewie. Watch the video below:
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 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!”

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
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.”
