Russell Crowe Has an Idea -- Add Naked Women to Everything! (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Nov 18th 2010 5:42AM
Russell Crowe Has an Idea -- Add Naked Women to Everything!Craig Ferguson is a weird guy. And like so many weird guys from the United Kingdom, he's a big fan of the insanely complicated sci-fi series 'Doctor Who.' (If you're saying 'Doctor Who?" to yourself right now, that's because the show has never become as popular here as it is in the U.K. Here's a brief guide to the show should you need it.)

But Russell Crowe is from Australia, which is like a tougher version of the U.K., so it stands to reason that he doesn't share Craig's geeky sci-fi enthusiasm. On 'Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), Russell makes a simple recommendation: Add naked women to get him interested in stuff!

Leno Shows Clip from Russell Crowe's 'Rocky Horror' Musical Days (VIDEO)

Russell Crowe Talks 'Rocky Horror Show' on 'Tonight'Russell Crowe's humble beginnings as an actor can be traced back to musical theater, he shared on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). He nabbed his first film audition thanks to work experience in 'Blood Brothers.'

But the musical for which he's most (in)famous is 'The Rocky Horror Show.' The Aussie did 415 performances of the sci-fi/horror parody in New Zealand and Australia in the mid-'80s. Crowe played Eddie/Dr. Scott -- but performed as Dr. Frank-N-Furter (the "sweet transvestite" scientist) in the production's final 15 shows.

Of course, Jay Leno was well aware of this, and rolled some of the YouTube clip to prove it. Crowe is unrecognizable.

Russell Crowe on Smoking Cigarettes, Setting His Pants on Fire (VIDEO)

Russell Crowe on Smoking Cigarettes, Setting His Pants on FireActor Russell Crowe is a tough guy. He fights, he drinks -- and he smokes cigarettes. On 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Crowe said that he started smoking at age ten. Whoa. The 46-year-old estimates he's smoked 18,000 cigarettes a year ever since then. 18,000 times 36 years is -- well ... we won't do the math for you, but it's a lot.

Now, Russell's trying to quit. He told David Letterman he kicked the habit five months ago, for the sake of his son. Dave was intrigued. "How did you stop?" he said, as the audience began to applaud. The actor held up his finger in warning. "You've clapped way too early," he told the crowd. Uh-oh.

Judd Apatow Mixes Metaphors Talking Sex on 'Late Late Show' (VIDEO)

Apatow Mixes Metaphors on 'Late Late Show'When Judd Apatow visited 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), conversation begun innocently enough, with him and host Craig Ferguson discussing Russell Brand. But somehow that led to the topic of fighting, which digressed into sex, and a dicey mixing of metaphors.

"All sex is really is a form of fighting ... It's a struggle for control," explained Apatow. "And who wins?" asked Ferguson.

"I have not won yet, but I refuse to go down," said Apatow. Maybe he was still referring to battle, but the audience didn't interpret it that way. Expound, please?

Russell Crowe's Sons Judge Him Against Indiana Jones (VIDEO)

Russell Crowe Talks His Sons on 'Late Show'Russell Crowe has 3- and 6-year-old sons -- old enough to watch some of their dad's movies and dream about what they want to be when they grow up. Crowe divulged some concerns about this to David Letterman on the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

"Charlie is obsessed with Indiana Jones at the moment," explained Crowe. "I really don't want any more critiques about my abilities and Harrison Ford's abilities."

At least the eldest son wants to be a chef when he's grown. The younger brother isn't quite so realistic.

Russell Crowe's Kids Get Bored at 'Robin Hood' (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Apr 16th 2010 7:26PM
Russell Crowe was on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated) on Friday to discuss his latest film, director Ridley Scott's 'Robin Hood,' which opens May 14.

Early buzz on the film has it that this version of the legend will be more realistic, violent and exciting than previous outings. But none of that mattered for Crowe's two young boys (Charlie, 6 and Tennyson, 3 1/2) who attended a screening of the PG-13 movie with their dad. "This should have been one of those great moments between fathers and sons," Crowe said. "Within five minutes, my oldest boy Charlie goes, 'Ah, dad, can we go now?' And ... Tennyson goes, 'Dad, when do you get a horse?'"

Maria Bello to Star in HBO's 'Emergency Sex'

by Mike Scalise, posted Jan 29th 2010 11:45AM
Maybe Maria Bello is taking this 'History of Violence' thing a little too seriously.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the former E.R. co-star will headline the HBO series 'Emergency Sex,' based on the book 'Emergency Sex and Other Desperate Measures: A True Story From Hell on Earth'.

The series is inspired by the gritty tales of beleaguered U.N. peacekeepers Kenneth Cain, Heidi Postlewait and Andrew Thomson, who were all stationed in war-torn countries like Cambodia, Somalia and Haiti throughout the early '90s.

Joan Rivers removed from live British talk show - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 17th 2008 6:04PM

Joan RiversCan we talk ... without using curse words? Comedienne and home shopping pioneer Joan Rivers was removed from a live British talk show for swearing.

Well, OK, it's not like she was dragged off kicking and screaming during the live broadcast (like this guy), but she was asked to leave the set during a commercial break. Rivers was on the show Loose Women (ahem) and they were talking about Russell Crowe and Rivers said that he was "f***ing shit." I think she meant the phrase as an adjective, not a verb.

Rivers is actually over there doing a one woman show on the West End, Joan Rivers: A Work In Progress By A Life In Progress. She has apologized for what she said, the host of the show apologized for what she said, and ITV apologized to viewers for she said.

Just to be safe, TV Squad also apologizes for what Rivers said. Thank you.

Update: Video added after the jump.

Who wants to hire a Gillian Anderson lookalike?

by Bob Sassone, posted May 8th 2007 8:15AM

Gillian Anderson lookalikeSplitting Images is a celebrity lookalike company in the U.K. They have a ton of people that can be hired for your next party, corporate event, or other entertainment-related function, though some of the lookalikes look more like the celebs than others.

For example, these guys look like Rowan Atkinson so much that they could probably commit some crime and he'd be blamed for it, and this guy could probably do the same for Bing Crosby, if he wasn't, you know, dead and all. But a lot of these people seem to be stretching things a bit. Do these woman really look enough like Pamela Anderson? And does this guy really look like Mr. Spock? I guess wearing a costume and/or having a pic taken in a particular setting helps.

Of course, you could get a Leo Sayer lookalike, though hiring the real Leo Sayer now would probably be cheaper now.
