As of today, you can watch the first trailer for the new Tom Hanks-starring, Clint Eastwood-directed biopic of Sully Sullenberger, the US Airways pilot who dramatically landed a full jet in the Hudson River in 2009. I’m sure the movie will be decent, but it’s impossible for it to be better than the fake Sully biopic created by Norm Macdonald for Conan O’Brien just a month after the incident.
A freelance comedy writer who says he contributed to Jay Leno’s Tonight Show for 20 years now claims he also contributed to Conan a number of times this year—involuntarily, after the Conan writers stole his jokes from Twitter. He’s suing Conan O’Brien, the writers, and TBS in California federal court.
Liam Neeson is just as protective of his Taken (and Taken 2 and Taken 3) daughter Maggie Grace in real life as he is in the movies. Grace told Conan O'Brien that once, when she was feeling down over a breakup, she had occasion to employ Neeson's particular set of skills, which apparently include prank calling.
Somewhere under the Southern Californian moon, midwestern gin fizz Allison Janney is having a dance party and if she invites you, Conan O'Brien, you'd be a real moron not to go.
Jenny Slate is so into her Marcel the Shell character that she's started slipping into his tiny little voice during her everyday life, and occasionally sings cover songs as Marcel just for shiggles. On Conan last night, she busted out a particularly good one: Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide."
Jennifer Aniston's bleep-heavy tour of the late night circuit made a stop on Conan last night, where she revealed the necklace she wore in Horrible Bosses 2 was actually a big ol' cock ring, and she told Conan O'Brien she wouldn't have it any other way.
Billy Eichner, greatest man-on-the-street interviewer of his generation, is such a big fan of Taylor Swift that he wrote a very emotional, perfectly Swiftian song for her to sing. But, because she hasn't (yet) agreed to perform "Glitter and Ribs," he just went ahead and did it himself on last night's Conan.
Old-man-yelling-at-clouds (but only cumulonimbus clouds, because they're black) Donald Sterling is basically out of our lives forever after a racist meltdown forced him to sell the L.A. Clippers, but Clippers star Blake Griffin still has to live with his chilling memories of Sterling's infamous "White Party."
Tonight Conan took a few minutes to remember Robin Williams, "the best talk show guest in the world," who once went out of his way to cheer Conan up during that whole Tonight Show debacle.
As we move to emoji-exclusive communication, it's important to be able to decipher the multivalence of the tiny cartoons that have become the de facto shorthand for expressing...everything. If you have ever received a text that is only emoji, perhaps perplexed by what it actually says, much less means, Conan O'Brien can commiserate. He can also read and understand them perfectly.
For anyone who saw and didn't find charm in John Turturro's insane vanity project, Fading Gigolo, Conan O'Brien's interview with Sharon Stone on last night's Conan was a welcome helping of catharsis. For those who haven't seen the movie, Turturro wrote, directed, and cast himself in the role of a man that piles of gorgeous women pay for sex for no apparent reason other than his sensitivity (his character, Fioravante, apparently doesn't even have a big dick, which would also be a vanity move, but at least shade in the character's appeal more than "...because he's him").
On last night's Conan, Adam and Blake from Workaholics got into a fight. It seems Adam's Pitch Perfect fame was too much for Blake, who stormed off the stage after Conan asked about the hit musical. But, with the help of Conan on guitar, the two were able to patch things up with a ballad about friendship.
In his latest insta-classic remote segment, Conan O'Brien comes down off his late night throne to mingle with his lowly interns — and things get weird in a hurry.
