Piers Morgan Invites Arnold Schwarzenegger to Apologize on His Show (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted May 26th 2011 4:45PM
Piers Morgan on 'Access Hollywood Live'Arnold Schwarzenegger's transgressions over the years have cost him his marriage, and have been a considerable public embarrassment for the former California governor. Piers Morgan is ever-helpful, so today on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC), he extended Schwarzenegger an invitation to offer a "mea culpa" on his show 'Piers Morgan Tonight.' He also explained why Hugh Grant is banned from the show.

"If he [Schwarzenegger] wanted to do a mea culpa on my show, I would recommend he do that," said Morgan, "because I think that there's a power of being honest and open about these things which, if you try and cover it up and try or run, it's not going to work."

Kit Hoover said Morgan's recommendation was that Schwarzenegger "pull a Hugh Grant," though Grant is barred from 'Tonight' for having suggested that all English tabloids should be banned from existence. Morgan used to edit two of those papers and took great offense at Grant's comments. So Grant will have to find another show on which to apologize to Morgan if he wants to get back in his good graces.

Ashton Kutcher to Replace Charlie Sheen on 'Two and a Half Men'

by Harley W. Lond, posted May 12th 2011 8:30PM
UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter has just confirmed that Ashton Kutcher will replace Charlie Sheen on 'Two and a Half Men.' The Hollywood trade reported that "two sources close to the deal-making (said) that the actor is putting the final touches on a deal to replace Charlie Sheen ... The exact dollar figure he will be paid is not known but a source says Kutcher is getting a 'huge payday'."

Earlier: The soap opera known as 'Two and a Half Men' keeps getting better and better. No, we don't mean the TV show, we mean the behind-the-scenes casting show.

TV Squad previously reported that Brit Hugh Grant had been in negotiations to replace errant Charlie Sheen in the blockbuster series that has been gilding Warner Bros.' and CBS' coffers for years. The latest news, however, is that Grant is out and -- ready for this? -- Ashton Kutcher is next in line for the role.

Grant's name reportedly came up about a month ago and CBS boss Les Moonves and CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler thought it was a good idea. Talks began and, allegedly, Grant was offered $1 million per episode (though later, insiders at WB downplayed that figure). Grant was close to sealing a deal when the thought of the grind of TV series work made him reconsider and he backed away.

Hugh GrantYes, you read that right. British actor Hugh Grant, all-around posh boy and rom-com A-lister has reportedly been in talks to replace Charlie Sheen in 'Two and a Half Men.'

Warner Bros. Studio execs and 'Men' creator Chuck Lorre have been searching for a way to continue the money-spinning comedy without Sheen, and word is that they're still looking for a solid A-lister.

Deadline reports that after being offered $1 million per episode, Grant was close to signing a deal when he backed out unexpectedly, supposely because he balked at the demanding work schedule of a weekly TV series.

by Donald Deane, posted Dec 15th 2009 10:08AM
When actor Hugh Grant was a child, Christmastime meant a trip to Scotland to visit his grandparents ... and an opportunity to hone in on killing skills.

"My grandfather was a military man, and his big thing with children was he felt it was very important to teach them to kill. So, he would literally spend all year, all summer, making cardboard cutouts of human beings that he would stick round the farm ... He would then take us into the farm and we'd shoot these people," Grant said on 'The Late Show with David Letterman.'

Saturday Night Live: Drew Barrymore/Lily Allen - VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted Feb 4th 2007 1:30PM
Drew Barrymore and Lily Allen(S32E12) Cold Open (American Idol auditions): The animals angle was cute, but I think the best parts were the split-second clips of the good singers, a beautiful example of how American Idol loves to focus on the painful auditions and push the better performances to the sidelines. Oh, and the shaggy dog family was also kind of nice.

Monologue: Drew Barrymore has only hosted five times? I mean, I know that's a lot, but I definitely feel like I've seen her more than five times. Maybe it's because of her occasional cameo appearances. Anyway, I thought this monologue was a great take on the typical romantic-comedy. The inclusion of Maroon 5 and Corinne Bailey Rae as the soundtrack was also hilarious.

Jon Stewart"Scott Free": The White House Chief of Staff, Josh Bolten, recently told his senior aides, "If you're thinking about leaving, now's the time." Ooh, ominous.

Scott McClellan resigned from his position as the White House's Press Secretary. The Daily Show crowd and I burst into applause. I couldn't even correctly type "OMG" in my notes.
