Matt Lauer Rides Jim Carrey Like a Horse (VIDEO)

Today Show, Matt Lauer, Jim CarreyHypothetical situation: You're a morning show anchor. As you tease your next guest before a commercial break, said guest crawls on set on his hands and knees and whinnies like a horse. What, pray tell, do you do?

If you're 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) veteran and consummate professional Matt Lauer, you get on that horse and ride (straight-faced, while finishing your line). That's actually what happened Thursday morning when Jim Carrey appeared on the show to promote his new film, 'Mr. Popper's Penguins.'

As Lauer was introducing the interview, Carrey came out a little early with horse routine (it kills with the under-5 set). Lauer didn't even bat an eye -- or stop his introduction -- as he mounted Carrey. "Come on, little Matty! Who's a cowboy?" Carrey encouraged as the two made their way across the studio floor.

Jim Carrey Shows David Letterman His Best Tom Hanks Impression (VIDEO)

jim carrey, lettermanJim Carrey proved that you don't have to be original to be funny (or awkward) on 'The Late Show With David Letterman' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

Making the rounds to promote his new flick 'Mr. Popper's Penguins,' Carrey dropped by 'Letterman' to chat up the family comedy and to offer his best Tom Hanks impersonation.

Carrey recreated one of Hanks' more memorable visits to the 'Late Show' note-by-note, scream-by-scream, and gyration-by-gyration by retelling Hank's story involving an unfortunate skunk spraying.

'In Living Color' Turns 20: Happy Anniversary!

by Jason Newman, posted Apr 14th 2010 4:00PM
In Living ColorTwenty years ago, on April 15, 1990, 'In Living Color,' the brash, outspoken sketch comedy show created by Keenan Ivory Wayans, premiered and subsequently changed the rules of sketch comedy. In its skewering of pop culture and satirizing of race-based issues, the mostly black cast combined trenchant lampooning (Michael Jackson, Mike Tyson) with original characters (Homey D. Clown, Fire Marshal Bill) to create a show that remains groundbreaking to this day.

Just as notable, the show became a launching pad for everyone from Jim Carrey and Jamie Foxx to then-choreographer Rosie Perez and Jennifer Lopez (the latter earning her first high-profile job as one of the show's "Fly Girls").

To commemorate the anniversary, we take a look back at some of the best musical parodies the show had to offer. And good luck not getting nostalgic -- or rueful -- of the '90s if you remember these.

'SNL's' Presidential Reunion Video Hits Funny or Die

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 4th 2010 8:45PM
Nearly 30 years of one of American television's most storied and beloved traditions (i.e. portraying our presidents as moronic simpletons whose inability to tie their own shoes could send the country to Defcon 3) came to a glorious fountain of awesomeness at Funnyordie.com.

The website premiered a new public service announcement on federal finance laws directed by Ron Howard in the form of a very funny "Presidential Reunion" sketch that features the likes of Will Ferrell, Darrell Hammond, Dana Carvey, Dan Aykroyd and even Chevy Chase reviving their classic impressions of former presidents including (respectively) George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George Bush Sr., Jimmy Carter and (the most hilarious in my opinion) Gerald Ford who come together to help the beleaguered Barack Obama, played by Fred Armisen. Jim Carrey also stepped in the room to play Ronald Reagan probably because Randy Quaid is nuttier than a Payday bar these days.

FunnyOrDie Video Features 'SNL' Presidents Reunion

by Chris Harnick, posted Mar 3rd 2010 5:30PM
Holy 'Saturday Night Live' presidents reunion, Batman!

FunnyOrDie.com is famous for its riotous celebrity videos, but this one featuring current star Fred Armisen and 'SNL' veterans like Will Ferrell, Dana Carvey, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Darrell Hammond and Maya Rudolph, as well as an over-the-top performance by Jim Carrey, may take the cake.

In a dream, Armisen's Barack Obama is visited by Hammond as President Clinton, Carvey as President Bush Sr., Aykroyd as President Carter, Chase as President Ford, Ferrell as President Bush Jr and Carey as President Reagan.

Ewan McGregor and Jim Carrey Lock Lips (VIDEO)

Late Show With David Letterman, Ewan McGregor, Jim CarreyIf we were going to analyze this photo of Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor locking lips, we'd say that Carrey is way more into it than McGregor, whose eyes are wide open. If you're really passionate about a kiss, you close your eyes and get right into it.

McGregor explained the photo on 'Late Show With David Letterman' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), saying they were celebrating their newbie knighthood in France (note the medals). Ok, we'll go with that.

Right now on Cinematical

by Kona Gallagher, posted May 4th 2009 7:01AM
The folks at our sister site Cinematical are working hard to give you news and reviews of the best -- and worst -- the silver screen has to offer. Here are some of their musings on the latest blockbusters, indies, and everything in between:

  • My Big Fat Greek Wedding stars, Nia Vardalos and John Corbett are teaming up again in a new rom-com.
  • I had absolutely no recollection of The Fugitive's trailer, but watching it again makes me understand why Cinematical included it as a Terrific Trailer.
  • While a good movie, I found Lars and the Real Girl to be quite disturbing. So the fact that The Beaver is being compared to it, involves a hand puppet and may star Jim Carrey? Frankly, I'm terrified.
  • I haven't gotten a chance to see Wolverine yet, but according to this Cinematical poll, it wasn't great. What did you think?
  • I'm not exactly waiting for the G.I. Joe movie with bated breath, but in case you are, here's the trailer in HD.

Star Trek: the television parodies - VIDEOS

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 18th 2008 1:26PM

A Simpsons' parody of Star TrekDo not adjust your web browser. You are now entering the Retro Squad, where we are reviewing past episodes of classic TV shows.

The original version of Star Trek has been a show with two faces. On the one face, it was a serious show that dramatized the good and glorious future we humans could have after we screwed everything up (though, with so many wars going on around the galaxy, how good and glorious could it be?). On the other face, at least to some, it was a campy science fiction show that featured poor special effects, bad acting, and tunics that really didn't hold up to space travel too well.

Since the show left the airwaves in 1969, that second face is the one that television shows throughout the decades have parodied. Whether it be the original series itself, or the subsequent movies, or the conventions that sprung up from this show that lasted only 79 episodes. Shows both animated and live-action have found ways to skewer the show's, and its fans', good intentions. After the jump you'll find a few examples of those parodies either to laugh with or be angry at.

Jim Carrey and Lisa Lampanelli producing HBO pilot

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 20th 2008 4:21PM
Lisa LampanelliJim Carrey, Lisa Lampanelli, and Kario Salem are set to produce a half-hour HBO pilot. Lampanelli will star as a woman who inherits a famous comedy club in Los Angeles, presumably one like Shore's Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip where Carrey himself got his start. According to Variety, "the central character is a Mitzi Shore type, a woman who unexpectedly becomes the owner of a comedy club and is forced to play a maternal role in the dysfunctional lives of the club's clutch of resident comics." This sounds interesting. I'm looking forward to Lampanelli in a lead role. I know she's can be nasty but she's very quick-witted and has great delivery.

Carrey is currently shooting I Love You Phillip Morris with co-star Ewan McGregor. He recently finished Yes Man, a Warner Bros. comedy, and A Christmas Carol, a Robert Zemekis film for Disney. Lampanelli, who has been a regular guest on Howard Stern and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, recently signed a deal with Harper Collins for a book entitled The World According to Lisa: The Queen of Mean's Guide to the Universe.

American Idol: Top 11 Revealed

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 12th 2008 11:00PM
(S07E21) Katharine McPhee CD CoverFor the first in a season full of hour-long American Idol results show, I'll give Idol credit for filling it pretty well. It was nice to see past runner-up Katharine McPhee perform on the Idol stage again, as well as the video footage of the Idols reacting to their sudden fame. What they need to do is turn the Results show into more of a classic variety show. And keep those past Idol contestants coming, too. American Idol has been around long enough now that it has it's own legacy and tradition, so keep honoring that.

As for the results, while the person who left wasn't necessarily the consensus choice, it was someone that I'm perfectly alright with seeing leave at this early stage. In fact, I could have lost the whole "Bottom Three" tonight and not lost any sleep over it.

Get Steve - Carell talks about the new Get Smart movie

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 27th 2008 9:20AM
Carell as SmartLast week, The Office's Steve Carell attended WonderCon 2008, talking about his new movie Get Smart. The picture, which is based on the 1965 NBC (and later CBS) TV series of the same name, will be appearing in theaters around the country on June 20, 2008. While saying that he tried not to channel Don Adams's performance so he could bring something different to the role, in an IESB.net interview with Carell, he said that before he got the part of Maxwell Smart, Agent 86, of CONTROL, both Jim Carrey and Will Ferrell were considered. The film had actually been in development for nearly a decade. Steve recalled going to Warner Brothers for a reading about three years ago. "It was the most surreal moment, because I went in thinking I was just going to audition for a role. I didn't expect them to offer me the part of Maxwell Smart."

TV's Top 5!: Jim Carrey does David Caruso

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Feb 20th 2007 12:42PM

Jim Carrey does a mean David CarusoJim Carrey has been doing the talk show circuits to promote his new movie The Number 23. I'm always waiting for him to mention Lost's Easter eggs, but it seems that he sure loves himself some David Caruso and CSI.

In his visit to The Late Show With David Letterman, Carrey's exuberant comedic personality came out to play and he paid homage to David Caruso by doing his own impressions of the CSI actor.

If you're Jim Carrey, all you need is a good pair of sunglasses and a line from your favorite cartoon!

And in other Top 5 news, if you're looking for someone to say that they have never seen Paula Abdul drink...
