'House of Lies' Stars Don Cheadle & Kristen Bell Rock a New Promo

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 24th 2011 7:00PM
House of LiesCritics haven't seen more than a quick clip or trailer for Showtime's new comedy 'House of Lies,' but I'm still excited and optimistic for what the show might be.

See I love a lot of the network's so-called comedies, but this one -- starring Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson and Dawn Oliveri -- has promise to actually be funny.

Proof: This bare-bones but totally adorable promo of the five management consultants letting loose a bit. Sure, the show's description calls them "cutthroat" and says they'll do just about anything for money, but that can be comical, too. And even without showing me a second of footage from the show, seeing Cheadle's silly side and, of course, Bell's usual adorableness has gotten me pumped to see more.

We'll have to wait until closer to the show's Jan. 8 premiere for actual screeners, but stay tuned. For now, just enjoy ...

Don Cheadle and Jimmy Fallon Play a Fun Card Game on 'Late Night' (VIDEO)

Don Cheadle, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'While we doubt we'll be seeing it on any of the late night poker television shows any time soon, there's something so simple and fun about the card game Jimmy Fallon and Don Cheadle played on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

The premise is simple enough. Each player sticks a card to their forehead, and then proceed to bet on whether or not they think they have the higher card. When your opponent has a low card, you might start to get cocky, but that angst wondering about your own card starts to get into your psyche.

While it was fun seeing Fallon try to bluff Cheadle, the latter revealed a very savvy poker mind. Fallon was saying he had nothing, which made him convinced he had a King or an Ace. It was an Ace, which easily smoked Fallon's three. Admit it, you'll be playing this game with your friends by the weekend.

Geoff Peterson, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Regular viewers of 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS) have become used to Craig Ferguson's loyal robot sidekick Geoff Peterson. Don Cheadle must not be a regular viewer, as he was absolutely shocked to see Geoff standing at his podium.

"Oh s***, what the f*** is that?" he said when he noticed Geoff. "That wasn't here the last time I was here."

Ferguson tried to play nice by introducing the two, but Geoff saying hello didn't make things better at all.

Don Cheadle Makes Fun of Matt Damon on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Don Cheadle showcased his deadpan sarcasm and quick wit on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC), brought to the fore when Cheadle and Jimmy Kimmel joked about their common frenemy: Matt Damon.

The two discussed their involvement in presenting the actor with the 2010 American Cinematheque Award. "I'm not sure what that [organization] is," said Kimmel. With a straight face, Don replied, "It's a group of drug addicts who watch films and then they pick their favorite actors."

Cheadle further joked that Damon paid for Ben Affleck and other friends to attend the event, and told Kimmel what he would do if he received the same award.

Stephen Colbert, Don CheadleStephen Colbert has a point. If Don Cheadle cared anything about his career or his causes, he'd get out there and kill a hooker or do some heroin.

After Colbert explained his reasoning on 'The Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11:30PM ET on COM), Cheadle promised to get himself into the tabloids one way or another.

Don Cheadle Wants Tim Meadows to Play Him on 'Craig Ferguson' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 25th 2010 3:50AM
Craig Ferguson, Don Cheadle, Tim MeadowsIf you're a busy actor and need someone to sub in for you on a talk show, turn to Tim Meadows. He can play anyone, even Meryl Streep, whom he stepped in for on 'Late Show With David Letterman' the other night.

"To be honest, I've always felt like a 60-year-old white woman," says Meadows. Still, Craig Ferguson isn't buying it, and doesn't think he's up to the challenge of playing Don Cheadle on 'The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS).

We don't know, though. He's a dead ringer. He just needs to get that "black 'Iron Man'" thing worked out. Or maybe Cheadle needs to get that worked out.

'Funny or Die' Delves Into Drunk History (VIDEO)

Funny or Die, Drunk History, Will Ferrell, Don CheadleWe knew the 'Funny or Die Presents' (Sat., 12AM ET on HBO) guys would come up with a great way to teach kids about slavery. Have someone ingest two bottles of wine, then narrate the story in a drunken stupor, with Will Ferrell playing Abraham Lincoln and Don Cheadle as Frederick Douglas.

We're quite certain the video will end up in classrooms all across the country, and just think of the spin-off possibilities. Everything from the Wright Brothers to World War II could become a part of the Drunk History archives. Just think about it. That's all we ask.

Don Cheadle's March to Madness bringing college basketball to FX

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 26th 2009 1:02PM
Don CheadleThe title March to Madness is almost too clever for it's own good. How did it take this many years for someone to come up with that one? I love the pitch for this one, too: "a corrupt college basketball program ... cheats its way to the 'March Madness' NCAA basketball tournament." If it's on FX, of course it has corruption.

March to Madness and FX are a match made in heaven. Nobody does the darker side of humanity better than FX. The Shield, Rescue Me, Sons of Anarchy ... even It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia tackles the lowest forms of people. It's a beautiful combination of amazing writing and gut-wrenching acting that make these dirtbag characters teem with life and humanity.

And what a great subject to tackle. There's so much at stake with the NCAA Tournament for the kids and the schools, the drama practically writes itself. The story, we're told, will be from the point of view of an idealistic coach who's struggling with the compromises he makes with his own integrity to get his team where he needs to be. Too bad Don Cheadle's only executive producing, I'd love to see him tackle that role.
