In one joke he talked about his nephew's birthday. Larry asked him what he wanted, and his nephew said he wanted incense. "And that night my cousin crawled into bed with him," Larry said matter-of-fact.
With this, Jackson fell over sideways on the couch. Thank goodness he wasn't on a chair or he might have fallen to the ground, he was laughing so hard. Fallon's head was down on his desk.
On 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated), DeGeneres presents an alternate version of the documentary with a voice-over by Samuel L. Jackson. You haven't truly lived until you've heard Jackson cursing and talking about bullfrogs. "That's a big [censored] frog," he says. "Look at that [censored] frog." It's fantastic.
On last night's 'American Music Awards,' the pop diva performed her single, 'I Didn't Know My Own Strength' -- a song reflecting Houston's struggle to reclaim her career from years of drug abuse -- and was honored with the Award of Excellence.
Houston first performed the song on the season premiere of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' after Oprah said it was her favorite song on the new album.
TV stars like William Shatner, Brent Spiner and Mark Hamill will join movie big shots like Chris Pine, Samuel L. Jackson and James Earl Jones in Quantum Quest: A Cassini Space Odyssey.
Producer -- Dr. Larry "Doc" Kloor (scientist science fiction writer and the only human in history to earn two doctorates simultaneously) -- led the panel with special guests Bob Picardo, Doug Jones and a call-in by Pine.
According to Kloor, Pine plays Dave -- "a photon who lives in Sun City, at the core of the Sun. He's forced from the Sun and drawn into an epic battle between The Core (Shatner -- right) and The Void -- the embodiment of nothingness (Hamill)."
(S01E01) Afro Samurai is Samuel L. Jackson's latest venture. It's a captivating mini series that's something of an americanized cross between Tarantino violence and high quality anime. Aside from providing his voice for two characters, he's also co/executive producing it.
"Revenge" begins in the past with the death of the boys father at the hands of Justice, a cackling creepy character, over posession of the #1 headband. I had to watch the fight a couple of times, but I still don't know just how Justice defeated #1. (A weaponized eyeball maybe?)
So when I was sent a preview copy of the first season of the pair's follow-up effort, Extras (out Tuesday), I was intrigued but wary: after such a successful debut, the sophomore effort more often than not disappoints. Also, all the reviews of the show I had read during its BBC and HBO runs (I have neither channel) were of the mixed-to-positive variety. So... is it worth buying, renting, or neither? I'll let you know after the jump.
If you missed the premiere of the new Spike cartoon Afro Samurai, you can watch the full episode on Spike's Web site. Samuel L. Jackson voices the lead character and also executive produces the program, which is geared towards mature audiences. Ron Pearlman voices Justice, the evil villain who killed the samurai's father. Kelly Hu plays Okiku, a friend from the samurai's past. Jackson also voices the comic relief character, Ninja Ninja. Music for the series was composed by The RZA.
The new series is based on a graphic novel by Takashi Okazaki, who has also worked on the manga series Evangelion, among many other projects, including the artwork for the Spider-Man 2 DVD.
Spike has ordered five episodes of Afro Samurai. They begin airing January 4th.
