Jon Stewart Thinks Clint Eastwood Would Have Been a Great G-Man (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 8th 2011 3:30AM
Clint Eastwood, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Clint Eastwood has a rare perspective on J. Edgar Hoover that he brought to light in his biopic of the man, 'J.Edgar.' On 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) he talked about his younger years when he would hear Hoover on the radio or read about him in the paper.

"It was a non-information age," Eastwood said of the times. "Hoover was always thought of the head cop, head G-Man, all that sort of thing."

Later, Jon Stewart realized that Eastwood himself had that same sort of presence, but he couldn't quite put his finger on it. Eastwood, though, knew exactly what it was. "You feel very safe around me," he said.

Naomi Watts on Working With Clint Eastwood, While Having a Crush on Him (VIDEO)

Naomi Watts, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Naomi Watts admitted to having a bit of a crush on Clint Eastwood when she was younger, but after seeing her on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), we think she still might. First, she stated that as a statement of fact if Clint Eastwood calls you and asks you to be in his movie, you say "yes," even if you haven't yet read the script.

Granted, Eastwood makes great movies, but she continued to fawn over working with him on the set, where she admitted it's "not a comfortable situation" in the workplace if you're crushing on your boss.

But then she marveled at his physical fitness for a man of 81 years, talking about how he demonstrated push-ups for the film. At least now that filming is over, she's free to crush all she wants with no discomfort.

Clint Eastwood Is Not a Fan of What President Obama is Doing at the Moment (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 26th 2010 4:32PM
On 'The O'Reilly Factor' (weekdays 8 PM on Fox News) Bill O'Reilly kept his viewers up to date on what two of the nation's foremost film directors think about how President Obama is doing.

First he played a clip of Spike Lee, who believes that Obama has been held up to impossible to achieve, Jesus-like standards. "He's not walking on water, but they're trying to nail him to the cross though," Lee explained, laughing.

Clint Eastwood, on the other hand, was his usual calm self when he stated his displeasure with Obama's job performance during a web interview with Katie Couric:

"I think he's nice a fellow," Eastwood said. "I enjoyed watching him campaign and winning the job, but I'm not a fan of what he is doing at the moment."

"I just don't think he's governing," Eastwood continued. "I don't think he is surrounding himself with the people he could have surrounded himself with."

Eastwood and Lee have have some pretty high profile disagreements in the past, so it shouldn't be that much of a surprise that the disagree on what currently ails President Obama.

Clint Eastwood and Jimmy Kimmel Discuss Heaven and Hell (VIDEO)

Clint Eastwood and Jimmy Kimmel Discuss Heaven and HellActor Clint Eastwood has appeared in 57 movies. But according to Jimmy Kimmel, Eastwood has only "died" in three of his fictional roles. That's a good ratio! But since Clint just directed the film 'Hereafter' -- which involves life after death -- Jimmy had a few more questions for him

So on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), things got a little ... philosophical. "Do you believe that there is a heaven?" Kimmel asked. "If there is one, will you get into it?"

George Clooney Gets a Rectal Exam While Talking to Matt Damon (VIDEO)

George Clooney Gets a Rectal Exam While Talking to Matt DamonActor Matt Damon received a big award during a star-studded gala event on 'Hollywood Salutes Matt Damon: An American Cinematheque Tribute' (Thu., 9PM ET on ABC). A ton of celebrities were in attendance, including Jimmy Kimmel, Robin Williams, Ben Affleck and Clint Eastwood.

One celebrity who couldn't be bothered to show up: George Clooney. Although Clooney did send a video message to Damon. Unfortunately, the message ostensibly took place while George was getting an "elective prostate [exam]" from a doctor.

Clooney appeared a little distracted while sending his message, but -- hey, at least he cared enough to call. "Tonight, you have an American Cinematheque Award," he said to Matt. " ... Ooh! Aaah!" These weren't necessarily sounds of excitement; they were more like noises resulting from the doctor's activities.

Turner Classic Movies to Honor Clint Eastwood

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 12th 2010 9:28PM
clint_eastwood_dirty_harry_gunThere's a lot of things you can call Clint Eastwood. Actor, movie star, director, musician, Oscar-winner ... and on May 31, octogenarian. That's right, the seemingly ageless action star is turning 80 years old. Having seen him in last year's 'Gran Torino,' still growling like Harry Callahan on a good day, it's hard to believe that he's not as formidable a presence on screen as he's ever been. Calling Clint Eastwood a legend, frankly, sounds like an understatement.

To honor the prolific career of Clint Eastwood,Turner Classic Movies will devote the day to him. On May 31, the network will give us 24 hours of Eastwood, including 'The Eastwood Factor,' a documentary that has previously only been available as part of the boxed set 'Clint Eastwood: 35 Films.'

Clint Eastwood Teaches Amy Ryan How to Punch (VIDEO)

The Bonnie Hunt Show, Amy Ryan, Clint EastwoodIt would be one thing to even be in the same room with Clint Eastwood (yes, we're totally starstruck that way), but to have him teach you how to throw a punch? OMG. Awesome.

That's pretty much the reaction Amy Ryan had when Eastwood taught her how to punch on the set of 'Changeling.' Rather than having a fight coordinator come in, Eastwood, who directed the movie, said after a long pause, "I'll show ya."

"I just thought, oh my God, Dirty Harry's gonna show me how to throw a punch!" said Ryan on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated). "I never want it to become ordinary, because it's not ordinary that Clint Eastwood, one, is talking to you, and two, is showing you how to throw a punch."

Clint Eastwood Tells George Lopez He Misses Jokes About Race, Gives Him a Leaf Blower (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Dec 9th 2009 12:04PM
Actor Clint Eastwood misses the days when one could use racial humor with impunity. In fact, Eastwood thinks modern culture is humorless and that people take themselves far too seriously, he told George Lopez on 'Lopez Tonight.'

"I think one of the problems the country's in right now is everybody's taking themselves so seriously," Eastwood said. "It was much more fun years ago when everybody would joke about it. You'd just joke about what you are. You are what you are, and you have a good time with it."

Are you interested in knowing who Top Chef's Gael Greene has slept with?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 21st 2009 7:02PM
GreeneYou probably haven't given a second thought as to who Top Chef Masters judge Gael Greene has slept with (why would you?), but you're about to find out. Greene describes it all in her 2006 memoir Insatiable.

She has always seemed like an interesting character to me, one of the judges on that show (or the original) that seems to have an intriguing, wild background. And in the book she describes the various famous men she has slept with, and that list includes Elvis (Presley, not Costello), Burt (Reynolds, not Ward), and Clint (Eastwood, not Black).

Here's an excerpt from Greene's book.

Six reasons the Oscars will probably stink - VIDEO

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 23rd 2009 10:03AM
AMPASDo you remember what film won the Oscar for Best Picture last year? (No Country for Old Men). What about Best Actor and Actress? (Daniel Day-Lewis and Marion Cotillard). If you didn't remember, don't feel bad. You're probably like most people. Most of us weren't watching in 2008. Even though they were celebrating the 80th anniversary of the Academy Awards, it was the lowest rated and least watched telecast ever.

As I perused the Academy Award nominations yesterday, I couldn't help but think that this year's broadcast is going to have a hard time drawing a huge TV audience. And considering that the only thing you can usually count on with the Oscars is that they'll run over three hours long, the show will probably leave something to be desired, too.

In fact, here's six reasons the Oscars -- which will be broadcast live on February 22 on ABC -- will probably stink.

Ten actors I want to see on TV

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 10th 2008 12:00PM
network tenHave you noticed lately that the new faces cropping up on TV series in starring roles are often actors you've never seen before -- or if you have, it was in a supporting role of a feature or a foreign TV show? Think about it, Lee Pace as the Pie Man on Pushing Daisies, Jonny Lee Miller on Eli Stone, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in New Amsterdam, Michelle Ryan in Bionic Woman, all of these leads are relatively new faces. That's one way to cast series. Another is for big stars to take to TV, if not for the first time, than for a return.

In an interesting article at IGN.com, blogger Travis Fickett points out that there used to be a line of demarcation between the worlds of acting: film actors vs. television actors. But nowadays the stars are going back and forth a lot more fluidly.

What the hell was Rowdy doing with the cows anyway? I mean, I know it's lonely in the West, but come on!
