Pee-Wee Herman Shrinks Jimmy Kimmel, Takes Over His Show (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 1st 2011 6:00AM
Pee-Wee Herman, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'If you ever wondered what Pee-Wee Herman would do if he were given a talk show today, tuning in to his appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) would have answered the question. Using a shrinking potion, he shrunk Kimmel down and took over the desk.

His first demand now that he had his own talk show? He had the band fire up some circus music. Kimmel finally complained -- in a very goofy, high-pitched voice -- one time too many, and Herman dropped a trick-or-treat basket over him.

Rebecca Romijn, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Rebecca Romijn had a surprise new reality show to promote on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC). She tried to explain it, but decided it was better to just show a promotional clip of it.

It looks like the show will be about Romijn helping people with difficult bosses at work. And, as it turns out, it couldn't be easier to explain. Plus, it's all right there in the title: 'Rebecca Romijn Kicks Your Boss in the Nuts and Calls Him an A******!'

The close of the clip had Guillermo hiring Romijn to help him with Kimmel, who ran away. It never helps if they're in on it, because then they know what to expect.

Brett Ratner Tells Kimmel About Playing Pranks With Michael Jackson (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 27th 2011 8:25AM
Brett Ratner, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Director Brett Ratner stopped by 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights., 12AM ET on ABC) and reminisced about his friendship with Michael Jackson. They were such good buddies that Ratner even stayed in "The Elizabeth Taylor Suite" at Jackson's house when Taylor wasn't there.

They met when Ratner was making the first 'Rush Hour' movie and he says all the King of Pop wanted to do was play practical jokes on people. One night the pair went for a drive around Santa Barbara in Jackson's enormous stretch limo and they got their kicks by throwing water balloons out the window.

Unfortunately for a homeless guy who just happened to be walking by, Jackson had a good arm and hit him with a water balloon before driving off. Fortunately for Jackson, he was wearing a Hulk mask so his victim never knew who'd soaked him. Until maybe now, that is ...

Snooki, 'Beavis and Butt-head' - 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Beavis and Butt-head took over the 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) set so they could hijack Kimmel's scheduled interview with Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi of 'Jersey Shore.'

It was a cute skit, with Snooki gamely playing along as Butt-head, all decked out in a suit and sitting in Kimmel's chair, asked if she was DTF. At one point, Beavis, who was producing, held up a sign reading 'Talk About Boobs.'

"I had a question about your boobs," Butt-head said. When she asked what about them, he responded, "They're big."

Harrison Ford and Chewbacca Fight on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 28th 2011 7:15AM
Jimmy Kimmel, Chewbacca and Harrison FordHan Solo and Chewbacca are one of the all-time great movie double acts, but we haven't really seen them together much lately. Has there been a rift in the Millennium Falcon cockpit?

Last night Harrison Ford appeared on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' to promote his new movie 'Cowboys & Aliens,' and Chewbacca stopped by his dressing room.

However, far from being the love-fest we might have expected, the reunion quickly turned ugly.

It seems as though Chewbacca did the nasty with Ford's wife and he's not the type to forgive and forget: "I'm done with that 'Star Wars' crap and I'm done with you!"

As he tossed Chewie out of his dressing room Ford drove the knife in a little further and twisted it: "Daniel Craig's my Wookiee b***h now!" Ouch.

Watch the hilarious expletive-laden video after the jump.

Daniel Craig's Early Hollywood Experiences Weren't So Memorable (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 27th 2011 3:56AM
Daniel Craig, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Daniel Craig is one of the biggest stars in the world today, but that wasn't always the case. In fact, his first movie went so far under the radar, that when he mentioned it on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), the audience didn't even give him a courtesy clap.

It was as if they were all sitting there scratching their heads. 'The Power of One'? 1992 ... Well, we know who Stephen Dorff and Morgan Freeman are, but this one's not ringing a bell. We don't remember this one either, in all honesty.

The silence was so palpable in the studio that Kimmel actually stopped Craig's story. "Usually a couple of people will clap like they really know what it is and love it," he joked.

Jon Favreau Explains Why He Doesn't Have a Cameo in 'Cowboys & Aliens' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 26th 2011 5:20AM
Jon Favreau, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'It's like a game of 'Where's Waldo?' when you go to see a Jon Favreau film. You know he's going to be in there somewhere. But, as he explained on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), he's not in his latest picture, 'Cowboys & Aliens.'

There were a couple of factors that kept him out of it. "We wanted to create like a real Western," he explained. "If I'm running around there like a smacked a** ... everybody's going to be pointing me out."

Plus, he got a bit of a reality check that maybe it was bordering on self-parody when the fact that he has cameos in all of his films was joked about in a 'Star Wars' 'Family Guy' special. But he still got to appear in the film, or at least an Internet parody of it.

Stephen Moyer Gets a Little Awkward Talking About Sex at Home and On Set (VIDEO)

Stephen Moyer, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' Stephen Moyer is married to his 'True Blood' co-star Anna Paquin, and Thursday night Jimmy Kimmel asked him on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) about how all the sex on the show might impact their relationship at home, and vice-versa. "There's a lot of nudity and a lot of sex on the show," Kimmel observed.

"A lot of sex," Moyer agreed, and then looked at the audience. "Just like home."

When he laughed that he might get in trouble, Kimmel said, "Yeah, you could really get mixed up, I guess."

Unexpected Vocal Coaching on the iPod Ruined a Date for John Stamos (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 21st 2011 8:05AM
John Stamos and Jimmy KimmelJohn Stamos is a good-looking guy, with few problems, we suspect, in the dating department. However, even guys like him can run into trouble, with a little help from their vocal coaches.

On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), Stamos told a cautionary tale we can all learn from.

Be aware what is on your MP3 player at all times. Especially if you're thinking of ever putting it on shuffle. You never know what might start playing at the worst possible time.

In Stamos' case, he was close to sealing the deal with his date when some lessons he'd loaded on there from his vocal coach started to play. And the specific guidance he was getting at that moment couldn't have been more ill-timed.

"Open your mouth wide," the coach said, "Stick your tongue all the way out."

Stamos was apparently "rounding third" at this point with the girl, so the coaching actually sounded appropriate and completely inappropriate at the same time.

Kyra Sedgwick Developed a Terrible Homicide Plan in Third Grade (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 20th 2011 10:30AM
Kyra Sedgwick, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Everyone knows that children can be exceptionally cruel. But the girls in Kyra Sedgwick's third grade class must have been meaner than most. We say that because she doesn't seem like the typically homicidal type now, but she apparently was back then. She told the sordid tale on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

By sordid, we mean oddly adorable. Whatever happened back then so seared itself into Sedgwick's memory that she remembers the girls' names even, but it was the way in which she planned to kill them that was ... cute?

Aaron Paul Used to Crash Kimmel's Show Two to Three Times Per Week (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 19th 2011 6:02AM
Aaron Paul, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'If Aaron Paul looks really comfortable when he's on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), it's because he's been there a few times before. Long before 'Breaking Bad' made him an Emmy-winning actor, he had a connection at the studio.

"I befriended a security guard," he explained. Kimmel was blown away when Paul admitted he was probably there two to three nights a week, until a producer finally asked him why he was there all the time.

"Have you seen that security guard who snuck you in here," Kimmel asked him, but Paul said he hadn't. This is either true, or he's protecting a friend who got him a great hook-up.

Shia LaBeouf Talks Meeting Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, Separately (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 1st 2011 4:16AM
Shia LaBeouf, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Selena Gomez may be dating Justin Bieber, but that doesn't mean she still can't hold that crush for Shia LaBeouf. So she was more than surprised when he surprised her backstage one day, and 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) had the footage.

LaBeouf was on, and seemed again touched by seeing how genuinely excited and shocked she was when she saw him sitting there. She was so stunned, she literally turned around and walked away, making him chase her down before they talked.

When Kimmel asked if LaBeouf was worried at all about Bieber, LaBeouf talked about when they met at the MTV Movie Awards. Bieber may not be a Transformer, as Kimmel described, but based on LaBeouf's story, we think he might have some Jedi powers.

Kimmel Asks Kids How CBS Should Kill Charlie Sheen on 'Two and a Half Men' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 30th 2011 4:49AM
'Jimmy Kimmel Live'With unsubstantiated rumors running around that Chuck Lorre and CBS are planning to kill off Charlie Sheen's character in the new season of 'Two and a Half Men,' Jimmy Kimmel decided to ask around to see how people might want to see him die. And, to keep it creative, he asked kids.

Where else would you get suggestions like having fire ants burn his face and hitting him with Barbie dolls until he's dead? There was something very disturbing about seeing these adorable children make such horrific suggestions on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

One kid even offered to do it himself. "I would probably get a bazooka and blow him up," he said. Another little girl broke our hearts by suggesting they give him cancer "like my cat."
