Robert Duvall Talks About the Two Funniest People in Hollywood (VIDEO)

James Duvall, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'James Caan isn't known for his comedy roles in Hollywood but, according to Robert Duvall on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), 'Jimmy' Caan is one of the two funniest guys he knows. He and Duvall remain close friends after all these years, which could help Jimmy Fallon get Caan on the show.

When Duvall found out Caan had never appeared on Fallon's 'Late Night,' he told Fallon, "Call him up. Get him on the show." Apparently, Caan is in New Zealand "complaining" on the set of a new movie, so he'd even have something to promote. Maybe Duvall will convince his buddy to stop by.

Then Fallon could find out first-hand how funny Caan is. According to Duvall, Bill Murray is the other funniest guy he knows, so maybe Fallon could have them both on and compete in some kind of "funny-off." You know how Fallon loves his games!

Ten actors I want to see on TV

network tenHave you noticed lately that the new faces cropping up on TV series in starring roles are often actors you've never seen before -- or if you have, it was in a supporting role of a feature or a foreign TV show? Think about it, Lee Pace as the Pie Man on Pushing Daisies, Jonny Lee Miller on Eli Stone, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in New Amsterdam, Michelle Ryan in Bionic Woman, all of these leads are relatively new faces. That's one way to cast series. Another is for big stars to take to TV, if not for the first time, than for a return.

In an interesting article at IGN.com, blogger Travis Fickett points out that there used to be a line of demarcation between the worlds of acting: film actors vs. television actors. But nowadays the stars are going back and forth a lot more fluidly.

Original content coming to Turner Classic Movies

Gene WilderIn an effort to change how viewers perceive the network, Turner Classic Movies has unveiled a collection of original programming that they are readying for 2007. Rather than being seen as the network for old movies, they want to be known as "a dynamic television destination for movie lovers of all ages", as General Manager Tom Karsch puts it.

The network has ordered a pilot for Idols, though that name isn't a sure thing yet. The series will feature actors interviewing the people that influenced them. The first episode finds Alec Baldwin interviewing Gene Wilder. Yeah, that one surprised me, but it should make for an interesting conversation.

Also in the works is a series of documentaries. One of those is Spielberg on Spielberg, a 90 minute look at his film career. There are also plans for a look back at the career of Marlon Brando through interviews with James Caan, Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, and Martin Scorcese.
