Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Steve Martin Balance Their Time With Leno (VIDEO)

Jack Black, Owen Wilson & Steve Martin, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Owen Wilson, Steve Martin and Jack Black were all guests on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) at the same time to promote their upcoming comedy, 'The Big Year.' But when you have three big stars sharing face-time on the same late nigh talk show, how do you determine who sits next to Jay Leno?

According to the guys, they hashed this out with their lawyers for two weeks prior to this appearance. While Owen Wilson was telling a story about working with Martin, an alarm went off and the three men got up and shifted seats. Leno had no idea what was happening, but it was their way to ensure equal time in the chair. Isn't fairness great?!

Lopez, Owen Wilson Throw Darts for Son's Wacky 'Hollywood' Name (VIDEO)

Lopez Tonight: Owen Wilson's Son Gets Hollywood NameOwen Wilson became a first-time father about six weeks ago, when he and girlfriend Jade Duell welcomed Robert Ford Wilson. But the baby's dad is a celebrity: That conventional name will never do!

On 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), the host suggested something more "Hollywood," perhaps along the lines of Bronx Mowgli Wentz or Pilot Inspektor Lee. But they needed some ideas. Science and geography to the rescue.

"I'll throw a dart at the United States [map], and you throw a dart at the Periodic Table, and that's how we'll come up with the Hollywood name," suggested Lopez. The result? Topeka Molybdenum. Nice.

Owen Wilson Shows Footage of Paintball with Neighbor Woody Harrelson (VIDEO)

Owen Wilson Talks Paintball on 'Kimmel'Owen Wilson received a paintball gun for Christmas. He soon discovered shooting at inanimate objects is boring. What to do...? Woody Harrelson lives next door. He and Harrelson decided to play dominoes, "and the loser had to run for the other guy." Wilson brought home video of the result to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

As Harrelson's daughter looks on, he bolts out from the back of the house. Wilson aims, fires and hits him easily. "I only brought the ones where I shoot him," he explained as Harrelson tries different techniques to evade Wilson's skills.

Owen Wilson Explains a 'Hall Pass' to Kids in 'Funny or Die' Sketch (VIDEO)

Owen Wilson Explains 'Hall Pass' on Funny or DieIn 'Hall Pass,' Owen Wilson plays a man whose wife grants him one week's break from their marriage. He can live the bachelor life, and all that that entails. But how would one explain such a "hall pass" to some little kids? The actor uses a dessert metaphor in a Funny or Die clip he shared on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

"You can only have blueberry pie for the rest of your life," he tells the boys at a birthday party. "That would be awesome," says one. Wilson continues, "But imagine after you've had it a million times. I mean, don't you like apple pie? You can't have those anymore. It's just blueberry pie."

"Can I stick my finger in another pie?" he asks innocently. Wilson says, "There are no loopholes: There's no licking, there's no fingering [another] pie ... It's just blueberry pie."

'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' Is Heading to the Big Screen

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 14th 2010 6:08PM
the_man_from_uncle_robert_vaughn_david_mccallumThey're at it again. Another popular television series from yesteryear, in this case 1964-68, is being remade, reworked and revamped into a big screen movie. 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E,' one of the iconic spy shows spawned by the James Bond craze, has been tapped by Warner Brothers as a theatrical. The Hollywood Reporter reports that David Dobkins, best known for 'Wedding Crashers,' will direct 'The Man from UNCLE' and Max Borenstein is writing the script.

The big question now is not when or why, but who. Who will Warners choose to play Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin, the two super secret agents of United Network Command for Law Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.), and even if the casting is perfect, as a follow up, how will they inevitably screw it up? The track record for well-loved TV shows being rejiggered for the silver screen is awful.

Jack Black, Owen Wilson Guest on 'Community' (VIDEO)

On 'Community,' Jack Black guest starred as Buddy, an annoying new character attempting to weasel his way into Jeff's study group.

At first, Jeff and the crew deny Buddy access to their group, but later reluctantly agree, only to discover that he's also been lobbying for membership in a rival "cool" Spanish study group headed by Owen Wilson.

Watch the video after the jump.

Review: Community - Investigative Journalism

Community: Investigative Journalism
(S01E13)
I'd like to give thanks to the Executive Producer Associate Supervisor Supervising Executive for being the man, or woman, behind the new semester at Community. When the gang returned from the break they discovered a new member in their group -- he snuck in during the group hug.

Jack Black basically plays one type of character, and that's who we got this week. There were some genuinely funny moments, but this definitely wasn't one of the stronger episodes of the series to date. With the community college setting, it's pretty easy to slip in a guest star here or there and even, as in this case, pretend they've been there the whole time. I just don't think it's necessary right now for Community.

MacGyver heading to the big screen...still

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 16th 2009 12:06PM
macgyverWhat are the odds that a big screen adaptation of ABC's 1980's hit MacGyver will be a success? Judging by the success-to-failure ratio of TV-to-movies, I'd say it's 50-50 at best. For every The Fugitive, there's The Wild, Wild West. A Mission: Impossible reboot works well enough as a Tom Cruise vehicle, but a live action Speed Racer is an unmitigated disaster. Still, the optimist in me will hope that New Line's MacGyver to the big screen will work. They first mentioned this about a year ago, but it's picked up some traction now.

There's no star attached as yet, but a lot of De Laurentiises -- Dino is exec producer, Raffaellla and Martha are producing for Raffaella Productions. (Giada is sticking to the Food Network.) Fortunately, the series creator, Lee Zlotoff is attached, too.

ABC World News Now anchor laughs during Owen Wilson story - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 4th 2007 2:21PM

Owen WilsonHave you ever laughed at an inappropriate time? Maybe during a serious story someone is telling or a funeral or a speech by your boss? That's how Taina Hernandez feels.

She was anchoring ABC World News Now with Ryan Owens the night that news broke that actor Owen Wilson tried to kill himself. The two anchors were laughing about something during the break, and when the show returned live Owens started to talk about the Wilson story and Hernandez started to laugh.

I would cut the show a little slack but 1.) Hernandez didn't really try to stop laughing and made light of it when she tried to "move on," and 2.) The segment is introduced with wacky music and narration and the caption at the bottom of the screen says "Poor Owen," which seems a little bit too sarcastic to me. Video (via Best Week Ever) after the jump.

The tabloid shows: Still sleazy, still ridiculous, still lame

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 28th 2007 3:00PM

Pat O'BrienSeveral months ago I made a promise that I was never going to watch the daily tabloid shows again. And I held on to that promise for a long time, and didn't watch Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, Access Hollywood or the other shows. Until last night, that is. I wanted to see if there was any news on the Owen Wilson story (though these shows claiming they have "breaking news" is truly laughable in this day of the web and instant info). I just want to report that these shows are still disgusting, ridiculous, and sleazy.

Example: On The Insider, Pat O'Brien showed clips of the hospital, with Samuel L. Jackson arriving and also Owen Wilson's brothers driving in a car to or from the place. And then they show "last known photos of the actor" (taken, um, August 8), and O'Brien describes Wilson as "running his hand through his hair," and you see Wilson with a serious look on his face. O'Brien is clearly implying that they can decipher something from a quick photo taken weeks ago on some street. Give me a break.

Jack Black teams up with VH1

by Julia Ward, posted Nov 15th 2006 7:04PM
Jack BlackWelcome to the post-YouTube world of television programming. Brookers got a development deal with Carson Daly. One half of Ask a Ninja signed with United Talent Agency, and now, Jack Black and friends are bringing viewer-produced comedy shorts along with their own original material to VH1.

Called The Department of Acceptable Media, the program is based on a live event that Jack Black, along with Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab, have hosted in Hollywood since 2003. At the live event, five-minute "pilots" by aspiring filmmakers are screened and the audience votes on their favorites. The televised program will work in the same way - viewers will vote online at www.acceptable.tv - for their favorite shorts. The winning "pilots" will get to produce a second episode. The losers will be canceled.

The Daily Show: July 13, 2006

by Annie Wu, posted Jul 14th 2006 4:26PM
The Daily ShowJon Stewart started off by reflecting on his day thus far... He woke up, had an egg and cheese breakfast, a nice cappuccino, bantered politely at work, sat down at his desk, turned on the TV, and realized that World War III has begun. "After that, the day is kind of a blur..." He said that he was feeling anxious, sad, scared, and hopeful... with just a hint of ennui. But mostly just fucking scared.

Finally, a look at Heat Vision and Jack!

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 27th 2006 3:40PM
Heat Vision and JackI've been hearing about this show for years, and now through the magical superwonders of You Tube, we can finally see it! Heat Vision and Jack was a comedy in the late 90s from Ben Stiller that starred Jack Black as an astronaut (ahem) who gets superpowers after a space accident, and fights crime with the talking motorcycle (voice of Owen Wilson), powered by the mind of his unemployed roommate. And if that description doesn't already have you laughing, it also stars Ron Silver, "as himself."

Funny opening from Stiller too: "Let's change cameras...as a person you admire, I'm giving you permission to appreciate this show. I'm also offering you my personal guarantee that it's going to knock you back onto your coal-mining asses. And that's a promise you won't be hearing from Georgie Lucas."

Who knows if this show could have maintained itself over several episodes, but judging from the pilot, I'd certainly rather watch this on FOX than The Loop or Free Ride.

[thanks to Bryce for the tip!]
