Sigourney Weaver, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Sigourney Weaver is heading out on a press junket in promotion of her new film 'Abduction.' She stars with Alfred Molina in the movie, and so Craig Ferguson had some tips for her in doing interviews with him on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS).

"He's very ticklish," Ferguson pointed out. "He's ticklish, and he's very embarrassed about how hairy he is downstairs."

"I'll bring that up right away," Weaver said.

Sigourney WeaverSigourney Weaver has booked a guest role on HBO's new Tea Leoni pilot, 'Spring/Fall.'

According to Deadline, Weaver will play a very "authoratative" fashion editor.

In September, Weaver told Moviefone that she wasn't quite ready to book a starring role on a TV series. However, she wasn't ready to rule it out.

"If the right thing came along, I'd jump at it," she said. "To be a part of a wonderful -- I think it would have to be a comedy or I wouldn't like it -- to be part of a comic ensemble that gets to work together for a long time is just ... what a wonderful idea."

Jessica Hecht, Matt Letscher, Jason Antoon and Marin Hinkle have also joined 'Spring/Fall.' Hope Davis and Tea Leoni star as two women who have a dysfunctional friendship in the world of fashion.

Sigourney Weaver on "Keeping a Hedgehog" in Her Private Parts (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Sep 28th 2010 6:37AM
Sigourney Weaver on 'Keeping a Hedgehog' in Her Private PartsLet's start off with the good news. Actress Sigourney Weaver had her first film role in Woody Allen's 'Annie Hall' -- which won the Best Picture Academy Award, and which is one of the most famous movies of the 1970s. That's the good news. The bad news is that Sigourney only had a cameo in that movie: in fact, she didn't even get to utter a single line of dialogue. Which is kind of lame, considering that she went on to be such a famous actress.

On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), Weaver explained how she got such a lousy debut movie part. It seems that Woody Allen wanted to give her a much bigger role in 'Annie Hall.' Unfortunately, Sigourney was busy starring in an "off-off-Broadway" play that her friend had written. And what was her part in this play, you might ask? Well, get ready for things to get weird. Weaver had the part of "a little girl" who "kept a hedgehog in her ... vagina." Great.

Sigourney Weaver on the Curse of Being Too Tall (VIDEO)

Sigourney Weaver on the Curse of Being Too TallSigourney Weaver is a famous actress and occasional international sex symbol. But still, she has her insecurities, as we all do. Luckily, Jon Stewart is the perfect person to confide in. So on the latest 'Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), Sigourney reveals all her problems to a sympathetic ear.

First, Weaver confesses that she wasn't very popular in high school. Honestly, though, this is probably a good thing. Our premise is that anyone who ends up being cool later on in life wasn't actually "cool" in high school. But this is just a working theory.

Betty White Says 'SNL' Push "Out of Left Field"

by Kona Gallagher, posted Feb 16th 2010 10:32AM
betty whiteOne of my favorite things happening in television right now is the push to get Betty White to host 'Saturday Night Live.' I've loved Betty White my entire life, from watching her on reruns of 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show,' to listening to her tales about St. Olaf on 'The Golden Girls.' What's especially great about this movement is that it's not driven by kitschy nostalgia. Sure, that's part of it, but a big portion of this drive is based on the simple fact that Betty White is hands-down one of the funniest women currently working in Hollywood.

Now, White is talking to People magazine about all of the hullabaloo, and she seems surprised that fans are taking such an interest. White says, "That just came out of left field. It's ridiculous. I don't think Lorne Michaels even knows about it, so we won't worry about it." While she may not be worried about it, that doesn't mean it's not going to happen.

'Laser Cats' Gets the James Cameron Treatment on 'SNL' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Jan 19th 2010 2:30PM
'Laser Cats,' a recurring 'SNL' digital short series, got the James Cameron treatment when the director lent his talents to the fifth episode of the low-rent schlockfest.

This installment of the sci-fi send-up finds Sigourney Weaver spoofing her roles in 'Aliens' and 'Avatar' and battling mutant felines who shoot lasers from their mouths. Think aliens with acid for blood are scary? Kitties bursting out of stomachs are arguably worse.

Watch the video after the jump.

Review: Saturday Night Live - Sigourney Weaver/The Ting Tings

by Annie Wu, posted Jan 17th 2010 11:15AM

(S35E12)
First of all, Sigourney Weaver looks incredible. Believe it or not, she turns 61 this year, so that's something to think about as we slowly weep into our young but round, Cheetos-stained fingers. Secondly, Weaver managed to play a variety of characters that explored a wide range of wackiness, all without humiliating herself (it was a dangerous moment during that "Fifty and Freaky" sketch but we all knew Weaver's still a classy lady).

The writing was pretty consistent and suited Weaver well, and it was fun to see her do so many goofy things. It's not often Saturday Night Live brings in someone that of her status. Let's be honest here.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas over on Moviefone's Inside Movies.

That's because the busy elves over there have re-imagined classic Hollywood movie posters as inappropriate holiday movies. Hey, you looking at the Christmas-themed movie poster for 'Taxi Driver'? Then we have Christmas classics re-imagined as action flicks. Take a gander at Rambo as Scrooge.

Also on Inside Movies, Ivan Reitman confirms that there will be a Ghostbusters 3 and that Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver are on board -- but not in a way you'd might expect.

Sigourney Weaver is earning strong Emmy buzz for her lead performance in Lifetime's Prayers for Bobby. In her first TV movie, the three-time Oscar nominee plays a religiously conservative mother who refuses to accept her gay son.

The film, based on a true story, examines Mary Griffith's (Weaver) transformation from intolerant mother to gay-rights crusader after her son Bobby commits suicide. Weaver says she was drawn to Prayers for Bobby because, like the book of the same name, it has the potential to start important conversations about tolerance and acceptance in homes everywhere.

Sigourney Weaver talks Emmy buzz, Ghostbusters and Aliens

sigourney weaver prayers for bobby lifetimeSigourney Weaver starring in a Lifetime movie? It happened. It's called Prayers for Bobby, and the three-time Oscar nominee is racking up the Emmy buzz for her lead performance as a mother whose life is changed by tragedy.

I spoke with Weaver recently about the film, the Emmy buzz, her next big TV project and more. Here's a preview of that interview:

Weaver on the benefits of working for Lifetime, and other cable networks:

"I think Lifetime, along with other cable networks, show very compelling stories about what it is to be human in a way that a lot of films don't now, except for small independent films. They're interested in a smaller canvas and I think those stories are very helpful for people and I think that they bring us together."

Can Sigourney Weaver figure out Eli Stone?

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 15th 2008 2:23PM
Baby Mama SigourneyThere will be some major star power in the new season of Eli Stone. No, I'm not referring to Katie Holmes' stunt casting. I'm talking big-time star wattage. Sigourney Weaver will guest on Eli Stone as a psychologist. Eli, who is in desperate need of figuring out what he's been experiencing is the result of the brain ailment he's suffering from or something else.

Since he had brain surgery -- or so we think -- at season's end, will Eli still have the visions? Will he fulfill the imperative to Live Brave and become a leader -- prophet -- or was that not a look at the future but something else?

It's all very mysterious, and just the fact that he's going to see a shrink is positive development. Casting Sigourney Weaver is a positive as well. She's a three-time Oscar nominee and carries with her innate integrity and class.
