'SNL Digital Short': '3-Way' With Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Andy Samberg (VIDEO)

Andy Samberg, Justin Timberlake & Lady Gaga, 'Saturday Night Live'When Justin Timberlake was announced as the host for the season finale of 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC), we suspected there was a chance for a recurrence of the characters he and Andy Samberg made famous across two 'Digital Shorts.'

What we didn't expect was that not only would they be joined by their recent lovers from the 'Motherlover' short, Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson, but that musical guest Lady Gaga would join them in the song and the gag.

The new premise finds our favorite out-of-fashion mack daddies leaving their motherlovers behind to foray into the next frontier in lovemaking. "3-Way (The Golden Rule)" followed they boys on a sexual adventure with Gaga and one another -- It's okay, because it's not gay when it's a three-way.

Oprah Asks Three Oscar-Winning Actresses Where They Keep Their Statues (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jan 31st 2011 6:10PM
Sissy Specek on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'Oscar season is upon us, and Oprah had Oscar winners Susan Sarandon, Sissy Spacek, and Holly Hunter on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (Weekdays, Syndicated) today. She asked each actress where they keep their golden statues.

Sarandon (Best Actress, 1995) usually keeps her awards in a bathroom, but has lent hers to The Museum of Natural History and thinks it may currently be in Chicago. Hunter (Best Actress, 1993) keeps hers at Joel and Ethan Coen's offices in New York.

Specek (Best Actress, 1980) was a little more possessive. "I'm rarely without it," she said. "I take it everywhere with me." Oprah then flashed to a big video screen showing Spacek sleeping, clutching her Oscar.

The moral of the story? Never startle Sissy Specek when she's sleeping, unless you want to risk getting inadvertendly clubbed with an Academy Award.

Susan SarandonHBO's 'The Miraculous Year' is piling on an already star-studded cast, adding Susan Sarandon, according to EW.com's The Ausiello Files.

Sarandon will play Patty Atwood, the "director/choreographer of the play-within-the-show." The actress is no stranger to television, having made a guest appearance on 'ER' last year, and has appeared on 'Rescue Me.'

Earlier this month, Lee Pace ('Pushing Daisies') and Linus Roache ('Law & Order') were added to the cast, joining Hope Davis, Frank Langella, Patti LuPone, and Tony winner Eddie Redmayne. Norbert Leo Butz plays the self-destructive Broadway composer at the heart of the story.

Dr. Jack Kevorkian's headline-grabbing crusade against medical law and procedures was bound to become a movie sooner or later. It's got all the elements that make for great viewing, whether it's on the larger-than-life screen of your local cineplex or the soft, warm glow of your living room television.

Barry Levinson Takes On Jack Kervorkian in 'You Don't Know Jack'

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 23rd 2010 11:05AM
Al Pacino, Jack Kervorkian and Barry Levinson at the premiere of HBO's 'You Don't Know Jack'What does it take to get Al Pacino, Susan Sarandon, and Barry Levinson together for an HBO movie? Only the story of Jack "Doctor Death" Kervorkian.

'You Don't Know Jack,' premiering on Saturday, April 24 at 9PM ET, chronicles the period when Dr. Kervorkian was helping terminally ill patients commit suicide. This includes the 1998 incident where he assisted a patient with ALS and sent the video to '60 Minutes,' which landed him in prison for eight years.

In addition to Pacino, who plays Kervorkian, and Sarandon, who plays his friend and euthanasia advocate Jane Good, the movie also stars John Goodman, Brenda Vaccaro and Danny Huston. Levinson, seen above with Pacino and Kervorkian, produced and directed the movie, the first time he's directed a feature-length movie for television.

The director of 'Rain Man,' 'Good Morning, Vietnam,' 'Wag The Dog,' and other classics spoke to me earlier this week about dealing with the touchy topic of Kervorkian, working with a pro like Pacino, and whether a movie like 'Diner' could ever be made today. His answer to that one is surprising.

Lisa Kudrow Answers the Question: Who Do You Think You Are?

by Nick Zaino, posted Mar 4th 2010 2:03PM
Lisa Kudrow Who Do You Think You Are?You might say genealogical research runs in Lisa Kudrow's family. Long before the former 'Friends' star decided to bring the British TV show 'Who Do You Think You Are?' to American television, her father had already written a family tree that Kudrow says takes up roughly 46 pages.

Kudrow saw the long-running original show, which investigates the family history and genealogy of celebrities, when visiting Ireland, and decided to bring it to American audiences. The only question was, would she tell her own story on the show?

Susan Sarandon May Star in Big Screen 'Big Valley'

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 11th 2010 4:03PM
The Big ValleyI'm never quite sure what to make of big screen versions of TV shows. Sometimes they work ('The Brady Bunch,' 'Mission: Impossible'), but more often they don't (too many to list here), because it's as if a show's plot or theme is necessarily great, it's the actors that were in the show and the time when the show aired. You can't recreate that with a big name star and some "nostalgia" factor.

The latest show to get that big screen treatment is 'The Big Valley,' the western that aired on ABC in the mid-60s. It starred Barbara Stanwyck, Richard Long, Linda Evans, and Lee Majors. Kate Edelman Johnson, daughter of show co-creator Louis, is planning to do a movie based on the show and The Hollywood Reporter reports that Sarandon is in talks to play Victoria Barkley, the role Stanwyck played in the show.

If there is a 'Big Valley' movie and she does star in it, then she has to be credited on screen as MISS Susan Sarandon.

Al Pacino thinks through a simple question about Jack Kevorkian - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 15th 2010 11:29AM
Al Pacino and Susan Sarandon at the Winter 2010 TCAsYesterday was cable's first day at the press tour, and a morning full of panels by the Discovery networks and a few other assorted cable entities was followed by three hours of star-studded panels for HBO. I mean, we're talking about one huge name in entertainment after another: Claire Danes, David Simon (The Wire), Rosie O'Donnell, Susan Sarandon, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, Ricky Gervais. Oh, and Al Pacino.

Pacino is playing Jack Kevorkian in the HBO movie You Don't Know Jack (Sarandon is also in the movie), and during the panel discussion, Pacino was acting a bit... odd.

How odd? He wore sunglasses on stage for the first half of the panel. His answers were often rambling statements punctuated with occasional insight. And the Bronx native spoke in a modified Midwestern lilt that made us think he hadn't gotten Kevorkian out of his system yet. When asked what it was like filming a movie for HBO, he replied, very Zen-like: "Well, it's television. It's HBO, and so HBO is television."

According to Susan Sarandon, kids keep her grounded and help expand her horizons to include new things, like modern music and ... pole dancing and tattoos.

Sarandon told David Letterman last night that, while daughter Eva Amurri was prepping for a role as a stripper on 'Californication,' both she and Amurri learned how to work the pole. And, Sarandon said, mother and daughter also got ink together; Sarandon has tattoos on her back and wrist, which she proudly showed off to Letterman.

Saturday Night Live: Justin Timberlake/Ciara

SNL Digital Short: Motherlover
(S34E22) Justin Timberlake returned for his third turn as host and it was tough not to keep expectations pretty high. I mean, if an vengeful warlock were to suddenly put a crippling curse on his music career (like they do), Timberlake could definitely fall back on being a professional SNL host. Yes, this would become a real profession, just for him.

As usual, some sketches fell a bit flat, but Timberlake's over-confident, hammy swagger made things a little more interesting. This particular episode also gave us another legendary musical Digital Short with Timberlake and Andy Samberg and a couple of all-around MILFs. It's tough to top a surprise appearance by Leonard effin' Nimoy, but "Motherlover" was certainly the highlight of the evening. Here are some other notable video moments!

Last night's ER: very satisfying, maybe a little disappointing - VIDEO

ER
So yes, George Clooney was indeed on ER last night.

The episode, overall, was very good. The banter between Carter and Benton was great, and it was great to see Eriq LaSalle again, and the way they reintroduced Doug and Carol into the plot was really well done and didn't seem forced or stupid. The show deserves points for that. It didn't work 100% though. Here's what I loved and what I didn't love about the episode.

Gilmore Girl set for ER finale

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 1st 2009 9:00PM
ABI've been pretty hard on NBC of late, like calling for Jeff Zucker's head when NBC announced it will present Jay Leno every weeknight in prime time next fall, but I think I'm going to have to tip my cap to the network for how ER is coming to an end.

Not only have the producers lured George Clooney and Juliana Margulies back for a last go-round, they've also cast Oscar-winner Susan Sarandon for a guest turn. George, Julianna and Susan will all appear on ER on March 12.

I'm curious to see their appearances, but here's the casting that will have me definitely tuning in: Alexis Bledel is booked for ER two-hour finale on April 2.

MTV plans remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 15th 2008 12:01PM
Tim Curry Rocky HorrorGenerally speaking, I'm not an anti-remake person. There are times when a remake is perfectly acceptable and oftentimes can improve upon the best of the original, like Battlestar Galactica, for instance. However -- you knew that was coming, didn't you? -- this remake just sounds like a disaster in the making. MTV is going to turn The Rocky Horror Picture Show into a TV movie. They will take the 1975 cult classic sci-fi, horror musical spoof and give it a 2008 spin.

Oh, please! You cannot strike lightning twice. Rocky Horror was a phenomenon. It was a cult classic because the people who found and supported the movie in all those midnight movie showings felt like they were part of a "with it" crowd. It was like we had all found a diamond in the rough, a film that Hollywood just didn't get. How can MTV possibly think they'll recapture that zeitgeist in a TV movie?
