Golden Globes: Robert De Niro Kills With Sharp, Funny Cecil B. DeMille Award Acceptance Speech (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 17th 2011 12:32AM
Robert DeNiro, 'The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards'Robert De Niro may best be known for his impressive body of work in dramatic film, but his more recent forays into comedy aren't coming out of nowhere. As he proved in his acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at 'The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards' (Sun., 8PM on NBC), De Niro has comedic chops to spare.

In a sharp, satirical speech, De Niro made jabs at the Hollywood Foreign Press Assocation, Homeland Security, 3-D and even his own recent movie. "I was very, very moved and gratified when you made the announcement [of this award] two months ago," he said. "Well before you had a chance to review 'Little Fockers'."

Edward Norton on Robert DeNiro: "He's Not Intimidating. He's Weird." (VIDEO)

Edward Norton, 'The Daily Show'Whenever an actor works with Robert DeNiro on a film, they can expect to be asked about the venerable actor while doing the talk show circuit in promotion of it. But there's usually a sense of reverence or respect that goes into any conversations about DeNiro. Not so for Edward Norton on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM on COM).

When Jon Stewart asked at what point the intimidation factor goes away and it becomes normal to be around DeNiro, Norton responded, "He's not intimidating. He's weird."

But then he started qualifying his comments right away, as if he was suddenly quite nervous. As if he felt a looming DeNiro-sized presence. "I love him and he knows I love him and I've said as much to him," he said, trying to soften the blow.

So how was Jimmy Fallon on his first Late Night?

Fallon

It's almost unfair to review the first episode of a new talk show. After all, the show will be different every night, with different guests, different sketches, different musical guests. So to sit here and talk about what was good and bad about the first episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon would be unfair and silly. But let's do it anyway!

There's one thing I loved right away, and it had nothing to do with the host, his guests, the band, the sketches, or the audience. Can you guess what it was? The pic above is a clue.

In Plain Sight: Trojan Horst

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 23rd 2008 11:23AM
Mary McCormack(S01E04) Okay, this was the best episode of In Plain Sight to date. Action-packed and filled with character revelations, if this is where In Plain Sight is going, it's going to definitely make it beyond this premiere season.

The set up has Marshall and Mary taking custody of a seemingly innocuous, diabetic, asthmatic accountant/arranger for a hit man named Lola. He's been caught in an FBI sting and will go WITSEC in exchange for "delivering" Lola.

Expertly played by Dave Foley (News Radio), he's just enough of an unctuous ass to make him amusing. When Mary throws him to the ground and pounces on him, he says, "Could you get off of me, you're not exactly petite."

The role was very much like Charles Grodin, a mob accountant, in the movie Midnight Run, with Robert DeNiro as the bounty hunter forced to take him cross country. (If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and rent it; it's great!)

Extras: The Complete Second Season - DVD review

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 20th 2007 10:00AM
Extras Season 2Yes, I know it's been a couple of months since the second season of Extras came out on DVD. But since I reviewed Season One earlier this year, I figured it would only be fair to look over Season Two, even if it's only for anal completist reasons (Of course, our UK Bureau -- otherwise known as "Martin Conaghan" -- reviewed the series when it aired on the BBC; his reviews start 1/4 of the way down this page).

From everything I heard and read, the second season of the Ricky Gervais / Stephen Merchant comedy was better than the first season. Of course, given the high standards set by Gervais and Merchant, that was saying a lot. After watching Season Two, I have to say that I agree with those assessments, but not for the reason that you think.
