Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon Team Up for Live-Action 'Ambiguously Gay Duo' on 'SNL'

Ambiguously Gay Duo, Jimmy Fallon, Jon HammIt's been almost four years since we last saw crime-fighting duo Ace and Gary stop a bad guy with a slew of unintentional sexual innuendos on 'Saturday Night Live.' But last night, during the Ed Helms-hosted penultimate episode of season 36, the Ambiguously Gay Duo returned in a very special installment of Robert Smigel's Saturday TV Funhouse.

The cartoon started out normally, but halfway through turned from animation to live-action, with former 'SNL'-er Jimmy Fallon and frequent 'SNL' host Jon Hamm playing the flesh-and-blood superheroes. Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell, who originally voiced the caped heroes, played the live versions of Brain-io and Big Head, with Ed Helms and Fred Armisen as two of their evil counterparts.

Watch the skit after the jump, and tell us: What did you think of the live-action Ace and Gary? What about the rest of last night's 'SNL'?

Stephen Colbert Defends Mitt Romney's 'Peacetime Spending' Gaffe (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Apr 27th 2011 12:00PM
In an op-ed in the New Hampshire Union Leader this week, Mitt Romney criticized Barack Obama for his "peacetime spending binge."

Given that the country is involved in two wars (not counting our military action in Libya) some have cited Romney's use of the word "peacetime" as a rare written gaffe. Stephen Colbert, however, defended Romney from the "mitt-pickers" on 'The Colbert Report' (weekdays, 11:30 PM ET on Comedy Central)

"Congress never declared war on any of these countries, so technically Romney's right," Colbert argued. "Our soldiers are just spending a semester abroad."

Or, how about this?

Did you know that before he hosted his eponymous chair-throwing, fist-flying talk show, Jerry Springer was the mayor of Cincinnati?

Going from politician to TV star may be an unusual path, but the opposite route is actually quite common.

Here are 13 stars who made -- or tried to make -- the leap from primetime to politics.

All Jay wants for Festivus - VIDEO

by Jay Black, posted Dec 24th 2007 11:41AM
Nice pole. Hehhehehehe. This works better if you think of me saying it like Beevis would.Like Moe from The Simpsons, I usually spend Festivus time with my head in an oven and a "no funeral" sign taped to my back. This year, though, is a little different, because a) I just found out my oven is electric and b) TV Squad asked me to compile a list of the things I wanted for Festivus. There's no time for holiday depression when an editorially-mandated list of things-that-will-never-come-to-pass is waiting to be written!

So, off with the noose and on with the list...

(S19E01) Blackboard Gag: I will not wait 20 years to make another movie

Adam, this one's for you.

To begin this review I would like to speak to all of the continuity wonks out there in the audience. You know who you are! You're the folks who keep writing about how nothing changes in Springfield, even after something major happens the episode before. Well, The Simpsons has plenty of continuity. If not, then Ned's wife would still be alive the week after she died and Selma's last name would not be Selma Bouvier Terwilliger Hutz McClure Stu Simpson, Continuity is there . . . it's just subtle.

Strangers With Candy reunion on The Colbert Report -- VIDEO!

by Annie Wu, posted Jul 11th 2006 9:29AM
Strangers With CandyThe guest for last night's Colbert Report was Amy Sedaris. I was curious to see how Stephen Colbert would interview her, since she was there to promote a project in which he is also heavily involved (Strangers With Candy, both the TV and bigscreen versions). He didn't acknowledge the fact that he's in the film, but I'm pretty sure most of the audience already knew what was going on. Anyway, while discussing fitness regiments, Amy revealed that she keeps fit by tumbling. Stephen then explained that he also liked tumbling with his building manager, Tad (Paul Dinello), who just happened to be hanging out in the audience. What followed was a very entertaining SWC reunion, complete with lots of tumbling and Amy in a green, sequined one-piece. It's so easy to tell that these three people absolutely love working with each other.
