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:

Jennifer Lawrence, two shots in, discusses her uneven breasts on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' -- VIDEO

Jennifer Lawrence continues her reign as the coolest and most unpredictable interviewee of the Oscar season.

After a Jimmy Kimmel Live producer “made” her drink two shots of tequila (“…and a beer, but the beer was my decision”), Lawrence gave a completely hilarious interview.

She’s been pretty sick this awards season and in this clip, she discussed getting a chest X-ray and discovering that her breasts are uneven.

“I just hope no one will ever see my breasts in an X-ray,” Lawrence joked.

Watch the full clip below to hear about her awkwardly trying to meet Adele and probably being infected by the Hollywood Foreign Press: READ FULL STORY

Matt Damon finally, finally conquers 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' -- VIDEO

Thought Matt Damon would be content with a simple guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live? Think again.

After years of serving as the butt of Kimmel’s regular show-closing joke — “Apologies to Matt Damon; we ran out of time” — the Oscar winner got his revenge last night by seizing control of Live. Kimmel spent the entire episode taped to a chair with a tie stuffed in his mouth, watching helplessly as Damon taunted him, replaced his sidekick and his bandleader with Andy Garcia and Sheryl Crow — a definite case of trading up — and enlisted a bevy of other stars to assist in his takeover. From the show’s very first minutes, it was clear that this would be a night to remember:

Allison Williams envisions how her dad, Brian Williams, would report her death

We got a dark look into the recesses of Girls star Allison Williams’ mind last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live when she admitted that she often imagines how her father, Brian Williams, would read her obituary on the news.

“I mean obviously he probably would skip work for like a day,” Allison joked. In her imagination, her dad gives a very formal announcement ending with a somber look down and the phrase “she will be missed,” followed by a quick segue (he’s a professional) to a story about heart medication. Watch the clip below:

Brad Paisley performs 'The Ballad of Honey Boo Boo' -- VIDEO

On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, Brad Paisley, country music’s leading funny man (sorry, Blake Shelton), debuted his new theme song for TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Watch it below. The whip was a nice touch. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel rudely interrupts Will Ferrell and Ryan Gosling's QVC show -- VIDEO

Everybody, absolutely everybody, knows that at 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday nights, Will Ferrell and Ryan Gosling come to Hollywood Boulevard’s El Capitan Theatre to shoot their QVC slice-and-sell show Knife Guys.

Well, everybody except Jimmy Kimmel, whose own show — also shot at the El Capitan — began airing 25 minutes earlier this week. Kimmel didn’t even have the decency to check the theater’s sign-in sheet before he began recording last night’s installment — which led to a pretty awkward encounter with Ferrell and Gosling, all done up in their finest Knife Guys t-shirts (and some really excellent facial hair). But hey, look on the bright side: Maybe this means that every Wednesday, Will Ferrell and Ryan Gosling are going to show up on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

See the sparks — as well as Ferrell’s Stabmaster 2200 samurai sword — fly in the video below:
