Jason Sudeikis Talks His 'Other' Billy Ray Cyrus, and How to Embody Sexy and Funny on 'Chelsea Lately' (VIDEO)

Jason Sudeikis, 'Chelsea Lately'Chelsea Handler continues to get her guests to open up about all sorts of things on the air that you'd never catch them talking to Dave or Jay about on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!). It started innocuously enough with 'Saturday Night Live's Jason Sudeikis.

With Miley Cyrus coming to the show, Handler asked Sudeikis if he planned to reprise his Billy Ray Cyrus impression for her appearance. It certainly seems likely that we'll get another installment of the recurring "Miley Cyrus Show" sketch, which features Sudeikis as Miley's father.

But Sudeikis took the conversation in a whole new direction. "I assume you mean the impression," he said. "Just for clarification. Because that is the nickname for my ... " But then he had to explain exactly how the three word name combines to described his man-parts.

Jimmy Kimmel and Jason Sudeikis Tease Rookie All-Star Blake Griffin for Being a Clipper (VIDEO)

Jason Sudeikis, Blake Griffin, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Blake Griffin is having an amazing rookie season in the NBA. After losing last year to an injury, he's come out and is setting rookie records that have stood for more than a decade and was named to the NBA All-Star Game as a Western Conference reserve.

But that's not what Jimmy Kimmel wanted to talk about on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

His focus was on the fact that Griffin plays for the beleagured Los Angeles Clippers.

"Would you rather be on the Lakers?" he asked him. Griffin was clearly nervous and uncomfortable at the constant badgering, so went for the safe route of staying mostly quiet.

Robert De Niro Dresses in Drag, Flirts With Diddy on 'SNL' (VIDEO)

Robert De Niro Dresses in Drag, Flirts With Diddy on 'SNL'Well, Diddy got his wish, but was it worth it for Robert De Niro? Sean "Diddy" Combs was the musical guest on this week's 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC). He appeared along with third-time host Bobby (we call him "Bobby") De Niro. And the rapper started a Twitter campaign to be included in a sketch with the actor.

So, that happened -- but it may not have been the highlight of De Niro's career. The musician and the actor appeared together in a sketch featuring Andy Samberg as "Blizzard Man" -- the world's most clueless (and untalented) rapper. De Niro dressed up in drag to play Blizzard Man's mom, and soon enough, Diddy was hitting on him ... well, her.

While De Niro was decked out in a form-fitting sweater, sunglasses, and a questionable hairstyle, Diddy attempted to seduce him (her). Mr. Combs laid down such lines such as "Girl, you the one that's hot fire," and "If you wasn't my man's mom, I'd tear that a## up" -- and okay, let's just shut this whole thing down right now.

Scarlett JohanssonAfter a bye week, 'Saturday Night Live' is back this weekend with host Scarlett Johansson and musical guest Arcade Fire.

This marks Johansson's third time hosting the show, though she popped up last fall when her husband, Ryan Reynolds, made his hosting debut. Fingers crossed for a Reynolds cameo!

Meanwhile, watch today's just-released promos for Saturday's show to tide you over -- Johansson practices her accents with, gets ignored by, then gets directed by 'SNL' cast member Jason Sudekis.

'SNL' Skewers Brett Favre With Wrangler 'Open Fly' Jeans Commercial (VIDEO)

Brett Favre, you've been 'Saturday Night Live'-d.

The Minnesota Vikings quarterback and Wrangler jeans spokesman has been in the news for allegedly sexting inappropriate photos to New York Jets 'Gameday' host Jenn Sterger. The NFL is in the midst of its investigation of the matter, but that didn't stop 'Saturday Night Live' from parodying Favre's Wrangler Jeans commercials with a fake ad for 'Open Fly' jeans.

'SNL' star Jason Sudeikis plays Favre as he horses around with his buddies, playing football in his backyard. Except Brett can't stop showing people his junk. Watch the sketch after the jump.

Sundays with Seth: A Quiet Anniversary Celebration

by Jason Hughes, posted May 3rd 2010 9:37AM
'Family Guy' - 'Brian and Stewie'
One hundred and fifty episodes is an impressive achievement, but it's particularly gratifying for Seth MacFarlane's 'Family Guy.' Once canceled by FOX, and revived due to fan response to DVD sales and airings on cable, MacFarlane is now the king of FOX Sunday nights. So how did he choose to celebrate his perseverance?

'Family Guy' is known for elaborate musical numbers, innumerable cutaway gags, and sheer nonsense sequences like a giant chicken fight that lasts for minutes and minutes. Quite literally, anything was a possibility, so what a surprise that MacFarlane chose to have two of the show's most popular characters have a conversation. And that's it.

The tail end of the hour-long episode was a clip compilation of some of those musical numbers. But the bulk of the episode had Stewie and Brian, locked in a bank vault for two days, just talking to one another. No cutaways, no broad humor, though I won't say there wasn't toilet humor.

'Saturday Night Live' - 'Gabourey Sidibe/MGMT' Recap

by Annie Wu, posted Apr 25th 2010 3:00PM
(S35E20) Like most of the public, I only knew Gabourey Sidibe from 'Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire' (Okay, seriously, if we're gonna do that, can we put it on the end of every movie adaptation of a novel? 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, based on the novel 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' by JK Rowling). It was one of those movies that I wasn't sure if I wanted to even watch because just looking at Sidibe in the trailers made me uncomfortable.

'Saturday Night Live' - 'Ryan Phillippe/Ke$Ha' Recap

All in all, a pretty mediocre episode. Ryan Phillippe didn't seem to stretch himself in any way. Well, okay, okay, he dressed up as a chick for a sketch, but apart from that, there was no palpable attempt to celebrate the fact that Ryan Phillippe was hosting or play to his strengths. I mean, I won't pretend I know what those particular strengths are, but 'Saturday Night Live' usually does a fair job of letting hosts try something dramatically out of their comfort zone or play up something unexpected. There was no sense of that in this episode.

Maybe they wanted to keep the episode toned down to counter whatever amount of crazy Ke$Ha wanted to unleash. By the way, that girl looks like she perpetually smells like drugstore watermelon body spray and BO. If that's the look she's going for, she's really nailing it.

'Saturday Night Live' - 'Tina Fey/Justin Bieber' Recap

(S35E18) Tina Fey gives hope to all nerdy funny girls out there. You may be frumpy and strange now, girls, but all you have to do is work really hard, be yourself, create/write/star in a hit show with Alec Baldwin and become super-famous. Then you will finally be able to soothe the flame of self-hate this is currently raging within you. This is the only option to escape your ugly duckling phase. Sorry if you were convinced otherwise.

All right, seriously, this was a solid episode. It felt like Fey had a strong hand in what kind of material was being produced; most of the sketches worked very well for her. This was also the first time I had heard Justin Bieber. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

'30 Rock' - 'Floyd' Recap

30 Rock
(S04E16) "Whuck?!" - Liz's shortened version of "What the F**k?"

This was one of those episodes of '30 Rock' where the Jenna and Tracy plot (yes, they seem to have plots together 97% of the time) really dragged the show down. Every line seemed forced, every scene seemed to be filled with over the top wackiness, and the whole thing just felt like desperation filler, as if even the writers knew they're running out of ideas on how to get Jenna and Tracy and Kenneth into the plot. Even Kenneth recognized it and told Pete that he has problems with Jenna and Tracy so often he should come up with a word that means the same thing, "Trennapro."

That's funny and I'm sure '30 Rock' reviewers will use that word to describe a Jenna/Tracy plot, but the rest of it just made me sigh and cross my arms (except for a couple of lines Kenneth said telling his stories). I mean, I enjoyed the killer clown mask that Chris Parnell wore in the Dr. Pepper commercial at the end of the show. Why couldn't Dr. Spaceman have been one of the plots this week?

'Saturday Night Live' - 'Jude Law/Pearl Jam' Recap

(S35E17)
Congratulations, Jude Law. That was a solid episode all around and a fine return to the 'Saturday Night Live' stage. And despite the fact that Pearl Jam was virtually unrecognizable to any ears that haven't heard them since the early-'90s, at least Law's musical guest didn't have any reason to do an awkward hoedown during a career-crippling blunder.

Cold Open: Of course they had to talk about this. Of course. Now, if you haven't read up on the incredibly weird Eric Massa story, it probably would have seemed like 'SNL' was just making up most of it. Unfortunately, they weren't. Maybe that's why they felt that ridiculously long intro was necessary? Anyway, the treatment of this topic was all right, though the absolute best part was Bobby Moynihan as Massa, attempting stealth snorkeling on Andy Samberg (the weak distraction was especially nice). And no, sorry, you can't unsee it.

'Saturday Night Live' - 'Zach Galifianakis/Vampire Weekend' Recap

zach galifianakis vampire weekend
(S35E16) This was definitely one of the weirder installments of 'Saturday Night Live' in a while, but for fans of Zach Galifianakis, it was a real treat. It's very rare that the entire tone of the evening so perfectly fits the host. A lot of hosts, be they athletes or singers or professional actors, use 'SNL' as a platform for showcasing other talents that they have (or think they have) and that can often lead to strange, near unwatchable territory.

Galifianakis knows where's his strong points are and confidently played those up all through the episode. He is not at his best with cue card-heavy parts, but rather when he forces the audience to bask in his glorious, beardy, unsettling presence. So we got a lot of that. A lot. Response to this episode will probably be highly divided (well, more so than other weeks) but, speaking as a long-time fan of Galifianakis, it worked.

Five 'Saturday Night Live' Sketches for Betty White

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Feb 26th 2010 12:00PM
Now that it's looking like the demands of a Facebook group will yield Betty White hosting an upcoming episode of 'Saturday Night Live,' it's not that hard to imagine those same folks demanding (or at least politely suggesting) the sketches they'd like her to be a part of. White would've surely worked in a slew of the classic 80s sketches such as 'Church Chat' and 'Wayne's World' -- we can totally hear Garth calling her a "babe" -- but alas we have to work with modern day ideas.

A requisite 'Golden Girls' sketch aside, it'd be easy to just pigeonhole White into an "old woman saying shocking things" role; and yes, that would be funny to a degree, but she's much more talented than just playing Dr. Ruth-type characters. Here's our short list of recent reoccurring 'SNL' sketches that we'd like to see utilize White's talents.

Oh well. Even if they weren't the real deal, at least we got our Jon Hamm fix, since 'Mad Men' won't be back until lord knows when (hopefully, July or August).
