Denzel Washington, Lopez Act as Garbage Men on 'Lopez Tonight'When Denzel Washington was about 20 years old, he worked as a garbage man, he shared on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS). The host said the ladies on his route must've thought, "That garbage man is fine as s---." Lopez then jumped on his chair and pretended to hang off the back of a garbage truck. "They'd be making trash," he added.

On a different subject, Lopez asked Washington how he responds to guys that want to date his two college-age daughters. "Well, like a friend of mine said, you come to the door in your underwear first ... mess up your hair. And you tell the boy, 'Look, I got a shovel and a shotgun. I don't mind using either one, or both.' You know, just act crazy." But Washington tends to parent his two sons differently than the daughters.

Denzel Washington Faces Off Against Reggie Jackson in Yankees Trivia on 'The Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

Denzel Washington, 'The Tonight Show'You never know what might be revealed during a fun late-night segment. With Reggie Jackson and Denzel Washington as guests on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM on NBC), Jay Leno set up a trivia challenge between the two superstars about the New York Yankees. Washington is a huge fan, and Jackson is a legendary Yankee.

What he got instead was a loot at how incredibly intense and competitive Washington gets when in a competition. We'd hate to sit across from the table from him in Scrabble, and not just because he knew how many "Ts" were in Andy Pettitte's name.

Washington was pacing around the stage, and mashing his button even before Leno could finish his questions. At one point, he even assumed the wrong question, hitting his buzzer before Leno had even finished asking it.n for it!

Even though TV Squad's very own John Scott Lewinski is fighting his way through hordes of overweight Rorschachs and pre-pubescent Chun Lis to get exclusive interviews and scoops on the newest TV news at the San Diego Comic Con, don't forget that our partners-in-crime from Cinematical are also there covering the latest flim-flam in film.

The movie side of the annual pop-culture cavalcade opened with one of the biggest names in the history of film and what could very well be one of the biggest names in the future of film. Director James Cameron screened a solid 25 minutes of his forthcoming sci-fi epic Avatar. Blogger Todd Gilchrist got a hint of the plot and special effects movie-goers can expect when the film hits theaters later this year and said it "promises to be both hugely entertaining and technically groundbreaking." Man, that's got me worried. That's what they also said about Titanic.

The Daily Show: March 20, 2006

Jon StewartApparently, New York was (is?) experiencing some peculiar weather on these first few days of Spring. "If you see the groundhog today, y'punch him in the face for me," Jon ordered. That Punxsutawney Phil is a lying bastard. Jon then did a few jokes to reference something that happened during the pre-show warm-up. An audience member brought Jon some wine as a gift, but it left Jon concerned. "Should wine be carbonated?" Well, it doesn't really matter... If it has a fancy name, drink it.
