Bill Murray Letterman

Any long-time viewer has their own personal favorite moment from David Letterman‘s 30-year career in late night TV, and quite a few of those memories probably involve Bill Murray. The actor was Letterman’s first guest in both incarnations of his show, and has sat down for many other interviews with the host.

Last night, for Letterman’s next-to-last episode of The Late Show, Murray jumped out of a cake before settling in for the interview while covered with cake and frosting which he smeared all over the chairs and Letterman himself. (Thus creating a proper bookend bit of vandalism to match his first appearance at the Ed Sullivan theater, when he spray-painted “Dave” on the front of Letterman’s desk.) Then they drank vodka, and lots of it.

The conversation featured a highlight reel culled from Murray’s many appearances on Dave’s shows, and some talk about the actor’s long career. Watch it all below. Read More »

Gary Faulkner on David Letterman

Earlier today, we reported that Nicolas Cage had signed on for Army of One, about an American construction worker who took it upon himself to hunt down Osama bin Laden. The Larry Charles-directed satire is based on an extensive 2010 profile of Larry Faulkner from GQ, but Faulkner came to the attention of the media months before that piece ever ran.

The “Rocky Mountain Rambo” first made headlines in June 2010 when he was arrested in Pakistan. Armed with a sword, a dagger, and a pistol, he claimed to be searching for bin Laden in the mountains along the Afghan border. In the weeks and months that followed, he made the rounds on the publicity circuit — including a stop at Late Show With David Letterman. Watch the Larry Faulkner David Letterman interview after the jump.  Read More »

Stephen Colbert Replace David Letterman

So #CancelColbert worked, if not in quite the way anyone envisioned. Stephen Colbert will become the next host of The Late Show on CBS, taking over after David Letterman departs in 2015. This raises many questions, most notably: will Colbert cast aside the conservative parody character he created to host The Colbert Report on Comedy Central? (Update: The answer to that seems to be yes, according to the Wall St. Journal, which reports that Colbert “will retire the character he plays on his Comedy Central show.”)

Colbert did say, “I’m thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth.”

The CBS press release is below. Read More »

David Letterman retire

David Letterman has announced he will retire in 2015. The announcement was made during a taping of The Late Show on Thursday, April 3rd 2014. In October it was announced that Letterman had extended his Late Show hosting contract through 2015, and many suspected that this would be his last run behind the desk. At the time, Letterman joked via a press release that “[CBS CEO] Les [Moonves] and I had a lengthy discussion, and we both agreed that I needed a little more time to fully run the show into the ground.” With Jay Leno’s departure from the late night landscape, the late night wars have seemed rather uninteresting.

Bill Murray Peter Pan

After 40 years in television, it takes a lot to confuse David Letterman. But that’s exactly what happened last week when frequent guest Bill Murray flew onto his set as Peter Pan, singing and everything. Check out the video below. Read More »

Bruce Willis has a lot on his mind. Not only does he appear in The Expendables 2, he has Rian Johnson’s Looper coming out in a few weeks, G.I. Joe Retaliation out next year and recently finished shooting on A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth film in the Die Hard franchise. Talk show host David Letterman recently asked the star about his latest turn as police officer turned action hero John McClane and Willis surprised Letterman by saying he’d brought an exclusive clip. He was lying.

Instead, Willis showed a video of himself as McClane very distraught over the recent break up of Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. It’s pretty funny. Check it out below. Read More »
