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?!
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.
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.
"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 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.
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.

(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.
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.
Have 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.
Several 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.
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.
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.
