Gary Busey endorses Newt Gingrich: Which politically minded stars would you actually listen to?

The GOP presidential candidates just got another pair of crazy eyes on their side: Gary Busey appears to be endorsing Newt Gingrich. The Celebrity Apprentice star told TheWashingtonScene.com, “I’ve never met Newt but I know what he stands for.”

Still, Busey — who noted that he’s a Texan who won’t be giving his support to Rick Perry (“He’s a good guy, he just doesn’t belong in the race”) — noted he’d rather see his old Celebrity Apprentice boss Donald Trump throw his hair hat back in the ring. (“Donald would be great. He’s a good friend.”)

Rosie O'Donnell vs. David Letterman: Whose monologue was meaner?

Rosie O’Donnell didn’t like what David Letterman had to say about her, or her fiancée Michelle Rounds, during the opening monologue on his show Tuesday night. But, rather than apply the old “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt” adage, O’Donnell opted to hurl said stones right on back. During the opening monologue of her show on OWN, O’Donnell criticized Letterman for his “loving, supportive comments,” when he joked, “The woman she is marrying, her fiance, was driving and her car broke down. And guess what happened? Rosie pulls up right behind her in her tow truck.”

After showing the clip from The Late Show with David Letterman to her audience, O’Donnell said, “Why is that Dave? Why? I don’t remember making fun of you when you had sex with all your interns! I didn’t do that. I didn’t make fun of your rampant, throbbing heterosexuality, did I Dave?” READ FULL STORY

Parodies of Rick Perry's controversial campaign ad are going strong

You’ve almost made it too easy, Rick Perry.

In a controversial new campaign ad, the Texas governor, clad in a tan coat — which George Takei wonderfully pointed out on Twitter was almost the same one Heath Ledger wore in Brokeback Mountain (oops!) — complains that “there’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.” The “not ashamed” Christian then promises that he’ll “end Obama’s war on religion.”  READ FULL STORY

Alec Baldwin has words for flight attendants in online, er, 'apology'?

Alec Baldwin was kicked off of an American Airlines flight on Monday, in part, for refusing to stop playing Words With Friends, but the 30 Rock star certainly had no shortage of words when he wrote a piece for The Huffington Post regarding the incident titled “My Flying Lesson.” (Ah, if only Carol had been his Captain!)

The now Twitter-less star (he quit the social networking site hours after sending out a series of angry tweets at the airline) had way more than a 140 characters in what can only be described as a non-apology apology. While Baldwin does begin his open letter by apologizing to his fellow passengers on the flight (“It was never my intention to inconvenience anyone”) the actor mostly aired his frustrations with the airline industry in general.

Celebs who have quit Twitter: Alec Baldwin joins the club

Twitter-Fail-whale

Alec Baldwin has plenty of prestigious titles in Hollywood (Emmy winner, Oscar nominee, the good Baldwin brother), but he added two more (arguably less prestigious) bragging rights to his resume this week: Celebrity booted from a plane and a Twitter quitter.

One day after Baldwin was kicked off of an American Airlines flights after refusing to stop playing his Words with Friends game and went on a Twitter rampage about the incident (one tweet read, “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt”), the 30 Rock star deactivated his account from the social networking site in light of the controversy.

Alec Baldwin joins the pantheon of booted-from-planes celebrities... and leaves Twitter

It seems like celebrities being kicked off of airplanes is becoming as synonymous to air travel as those hard-to-open bags of peanuts, tiny bathrooms, annoying Captain spiels, and cliched jokes about the perils of flying.

On Tuesday, Alec Baldwin joined the growing list of stars who have been booted from planes. But Baldwin’s exit might be the best one yet, or at the very least, the most relatable considering a game of Words With Friends got him in trouble with American Airlines. The 30 Rock actor told his followers on Twitter, “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt.” (I like to imagine he was deeply immersed in a wildly competitive game with John Krasinski in which he kept using Yankees terminology.)

Carson Kressley and Carrie Fisher, together at last

This just in! “Vogue” specialist Carson Kressley and wishful drinker Carrie Fisher are in production on a Hallmark Channel original Holiday 2012 movie called Caroling — a modern-day spin on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Fisher will play the ghost of a book publisher who used to be Kressley’s boss. Carson, beware! Never go with a hippie to a second location.

I think the real question here — besides “Why can’t they fast-track this mess for 2011?” — is “When is Carrie Fisher going to do Dancing With the Stars?” I say she should join the cast of season 15 in fall 2012 — that way she and Carson, who will hopefully have become a third host by that point, can endlessly plug their Hallmark Christmas movie as often as Tom Bergeron mentions the dreaded “Macy’s Stars of Dance.” No one will get annoyed at all.

Sound like a plan?

Jimmy Fallon to bring 'Late Night' antics on second comedy album

Somewhere, Al Yankovic is sweating.

Talk show host and parody extraordinaire Jimmy Fallon has reportedly signed a deal with Warner Bros. Records to release a comedy album in 2012. The album will include music and parodies featured on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

You probably don’t need reminding, but the former SNL skit-ster has consistently shown the world — via his Late Night stage how to put a good spoof together. Recently, he wasted no time re-interpreting Justin Bieber’s “Baby” and looking back we have Fallon to thank for the Neil Young-inspired “Pants on the Ground” and the greatest rendition of Rebecca Black’s “Friday” the world has ever known. Not to mention this his pitch-perfect opening number as host of the 2010 Emmy Awards. READ FULL STORY

Jon Stewart and 'The Daily Show' Twitter prank Jon Huntsman, who, for the record, is not Jon Hamm

If GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman initially found himself fielding questions like “Didn’t Jon Hamm’s Don Draper just propose to Megan in the season four finale as a means to simply keep hiding from the past and himself?” instead of something along the lines of, “What are your plans for budget reform?” he (and, okay, we, as we’re incredibly amused by this) have another Jon to thank.

In what can only be hailed as one of the funniest Twitter stunts ever, Jon Stewart and his Daily Show team punked Huntsman’s “Twitter Town Hall meeting” on Tuesday afternoon. After the Utah governor reminded his followers, “I’m taking your questions on Twitter at 4:45 ET TODAY. Use hashtag #Q4Jon. Excited to do it!” The Daily Show sent out a tweet a few hours later that read, “@MadMen_AMC fans: tweet Jon Hamm your questions by 4:15 Eastern! Hashtag #Q4Jon.” (See below.) And thus, a prank involving three good-humored, handsome Jons began.

Darth Vader is the Grinch in 'The Sith Who Stole Christmas' -- VIDEO

Darth Vader is one of the great movie villains, but something about the character just seems built for parody. Maybe it’s because — with his jet-black evil-samurai-robot suit and his stentorian speech patterns — he’s the definition of evil incarnate. Or maybe it’s because he’s wearing a mask, so it’s easy to dub in hilarious new dialogue. There’s a whole parade of great Vader spoof videos: “Vader Sessions,” which brilliantly mixed in dialogue from other James Earl Jones movies; the beloved “Chad Vader” series; “Darth Vader Being a Smartass,” possibly the best use of Final Cut’s “reverse clip” function ever; and of course, those hilarious three Star Wars spoofs which pretended that Darth Vader was a doofy crybaby with a rat-tail haircut. (That George Lucas: What a kidder!) To that canon we can now add “The Sith Who Stole Christmas,” where Darth Vader essays the role of the Grinch. Watch below: READ FULL STORY
