For the last few years, one of the highlights of the Academy Awards night has been what comes after the Academy Awards. Namely, Jimmy Kimmel‘s post-Oscar spoof of Hollywood filmmaking at its grandest. This year was no exception.
After knocking it out of the park two years in a row with Movie: The Movie and its inevitable sequel, he switched gears this year to bring us highfalutin Oscar bait trailers starring the likes of Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ben Kingsley… based on the likes of YouTube classics “David After Dentist,” “Keyboard Cat,” and “Charlie Bit My Finger.” Check ’em all out after the jump.

At the end of every single episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host apologizes to Matt Damon for running out of time. The gag is that every single night, Damon is in the back waiting to come on the show. That’s not true of course, but the dedication to the bit is impressive. It’s so impressive, in fact, Damon has never actually been a guest on the show. He’s appeared, however. He’s hosted, and been in taped videos, but never appeared as a guest.
Earlier this week, it finally happened. It only took George Clooney, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett and Bob Balaban to do it. Damon is one of the stars of Clooney’s The Monuments Men and was unceremoniously brought out as part of the ensemble. That devolved into 10 minutes of the genius cast ripping him to shreds. It’s hilarious. Check it out below. Read More »
AMC has announced that they will be running every single episode of Breaking Bad in a marathon leading up to the series finale on September 29th. The event, titled “Countdown To Finale,” will begin on September 25th at 8pm with the first episode of the show from Season 1. The marathon will go non-stop until it hits the end of Season 4 late on Friday September 27th. The network will then air Season 5 (parts a and b) beginning on September 28 at 11pm, which will leakin directly to the 75-minute series finale on September 29th at 9pm.
That finale will be followed by a one-hour live edition of Talking Bad hosted by Chris Hardwick featuring series creator/show-runner Vince Gilligan, alongside stars Aaron Paul, Giancarlo Esposito, Jesse Plemmons, RJ Mitte, Jonathan Banks and for some weird reason, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. So if you’ve missed out on Breaking Bad, AMC is giving you a chance to catch the entire thing leading up to what will likely be ONE OF the most talked about television finale’s in history. They’re even giving you a break to sleep on Friday night, so whats your excuse? Full press release after the jump.

When MTV unveiled their new take on Teen Wolf in 2011, their efforts were initially met with eyerolls from folks old enough to remember the original Teen Wolf. The new series didn’t bear much of a resemblance to its ostensible source material, which had been a somewhat cheesy ’80s comedy. If anything, the new show was much more like the angsty Twilight, with its ripped, frequently shirtless shapeshifters.
But perhaps it’s for the best that MTV took the property in an entirely different direction after all. Because according to Jack Black‘s new Teen Wolf sequel Adult Wolf, Scott Howard’s life went on a steep downward trajectory after adolescence. “Back in high school I had it all: Brains, skills, girls, but after graduation, everything just fell apart,” he reflects. “Now I’ve got no job, no girlfriend, and one very annoying roommate.” Check out the “sizzle reel” after the jump.

Harrison Ford isn’t exactly known for letting his sense of humor shine through in interviews. And lately, where every interview is a minefield full of potential Star Wars questions, he seems perhaps more testy than usual. When Ford did a quick press appearance on Jimmy Kimmel’s show last night, the host was pretty good about playing along with the actor’s reluctance to talk about his possible return to the role of Han Solo.
But then Kimmel opened questions up to the audience, and things didn’t go so well. The Q&A went downhill fast enough, in fact, that Ford managed to forget his general rule against engaging on the subject of Star Wars, and almost became Han Solo for a minute.

There’s no better place than the Oscars to see all your favorite movie stars assembled in one place, but the trailer for Jimmy Kimmel‘s Movie: The Movie V2 might be a close second.
In his post-Oscars show last year, Kimmel debuted an epic, star-studded 9-minute trailer poking fun at every obnoxious movie trope under the sun. This year, he’s back with an even more epic, even more star-studded trailer for Movie: The Movie V2. Because as Kimmel quips, “When you have a big success in Hollywood, there’s only one reasonable thing you can do, and that is cheapen it with a sequel.”
Watch Movie: The Movie V2 after the jump, followed by Kimmel’s other big movie parody, Life of Psy. Yup, that’s exactly what it sounds like.

Before the release of The Dark Knight Rises, every member of the cast was incredibly guarded when it came to discussing plot points. Now that the film is out and part of the public conscious, one would think all of what happens would be open for discussion, especially since most of it is pretty cut and dry. That’s not necessarily the case for John Blake, the character played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who has remained pretty silent in regards to the film’s ending. However, on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the star of Looper not only talked about the ending, he talked about the future of the franchise. If you know what I mean. These are the biggest possible spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises, so we’ll keep them after the jump. Read More »
Gary Oldman, actor, would like to make a request. He represents the many actors who have spent years perfecting their craft, and is troubled by athletes who think they can just waltz onto a set and turn into actors. What, do these game-players think acting ability develops by consuming a magical packet of Teddy Grahams at the craft service table?
Fortunately, Jimmy Kimmel gave Oldman a platform from which he could deliver a message to athletes and actors. His speech is a passionate plea for each to concentrate on the things they’re really good at doing. Watch his message below. Read More »
