Fallon Shows 10-Year Old Video He Made With Zooey Deschanel (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 16th 2011 5:00AM
Zooey Deschanel, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Superfans of Jimmy Fallon may remember a certain song he recorded a decade ago. If not, he refreshed all of our memories on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC). He did so because Zooey Deschanel was on the show, and she was the co-star of his 'Idiot Boyfriend' video.

With bright blonde hair, Deschanel was almost unrecognizable in the clip, while baby-faced Fallon doesn't seem to have changed much at all. Not that Deschanel looks at all old enough to have even been an adult woman ten years ago.

The two of them were clearly having a blast hanging out together, doing goofy valley girl voices back and forth and just chatting it up like old friends rather than a host and a guest. Fallon is always a lot of fun behind the desk when he feels more comfortable with his guests.

Zooey Deschanel Cutes Her Way to a Golden Harmonica on 'Late Late Show' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 15th 2011 5:08AM
Zooey Deschanel, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Craig Ferguson has slowly evolved a trio of options for when he's completed his interview with guests on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS) because he's never known how to gracefully close an interview.

So the guests now can choose between an awkward pause, playing a harmonica mouth organ, or they can touch his glitter ball. When Zooey Deschanel chose the harmonica, Ferguson revealed that if she was good she could earn a prize: The Golden Harmonica Mouth Organ!

We should have known something was up when Deschanel killed a lot of time saying she should have won one of those for her previous appearance on the show. "I actually played it quite well," she said.

Darren Criss Stays Mum on 'Glee' Finale, Geoff Stults Gives Hugs & More From Fox's Upfront Party

by Jean Bentley, posted May 16th 2011 11:45PM
Michael Clarke Duncan, Geoff Stults, The Finder, FoxNo matter how much you ask, Darren Criss won't tell you anything about the 'Glee' finale.

Despite the number of times AOL TV pressed him for intel at tonight's Fox Upfront party, he wouldn't spill any details. Of course, that could be because he isn't actually in the episode. He was in New York when the cast visited a few weeks ago to film, so that could've caused some confusion.

"I was here when they were shooting so I just went to say hi," he told us.

Though Criss was spiffed up in a suit when we chatted, earlier he had joined the Dalton Warblers in donning one of those ubiquitous red-piped blazers to sing 'Hey Soul Sister' at Fox's presentation today. Naturally, that led to the most hard-hitting Warbler-related question of them all: How often do those blazers get washed?

"Oh, never!" he joked (we think).

Zooey Deschanel, Rachel Bilson in Talks to Join Pilots, Tracy Morgan Back at '30 Rock' and More

by Jean Bentley, posted Feb 8th 2011 7:00PM
Zooey DeschanelZooey Deschanel might be a movie star already, but she could be following in her big sister's footsteps and joining a TV series full time.

TV Line reports that Deschanel is reportedly in talks to star in the Fox comedy pilot 'Chicks and Dicks,' from 'No Strings Attached' writer Liz Merriwether. The actress would play Jessica, an elementary school teacher who moves in with a group of immature guys after breaking up with her live-in boyfriend.

Nothing's set in stone yet, especially not the title of the show -- that'll probably change if the series ever makes it to air.

Deschanel's sister, Emily, stars on the Fox hit 'Bones.'

Also in contention to star in one of the season's biggest pilots is Rachel Bilson, who is in talks for a lead role in Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage's new show, 'Hart of Dixie.' Bilson would play a New York City doctor who inherits a small Southern medical practice, reports Deadline.

Chris WilliamsWilhelmina Slater just can't catch a break.

Not only does she have a conniving daughter, a dead lover and Daniel Meade's ineptitude to deal with, now she's set to discover that she has a long-lost twin ... well, kind of.

The Ausiello Files is reporting that 'Ugly Betty''s resident devil in Prada is in for a shock in early 2010 when she discovers that she's the subject of a drag queen impersonation act, ingeniously named Wilhediva Hater. But that's not even the best part -- Ausiello's sources say that the man behind Willie's fabulous doppelganger is none other than Vanessa Williams' real-life brother, Chris Williams. There's nothing like keeping it in the family.

In light of this fierce casting, we at Inside TV have taken it upon ourselves to compile a list of our favorite real-life sibling co-stars to have graced the small screen in recent years:

Top Chef Masters premieres this June

by Michael Pascua, posted Apr 8th 2009 3:39PM
kelly choi, host of top chef mastersBravo has announced the show Top Chef Masters will begin Wednesday June 10th. The show is basically the celebrity version of Top Chef, where "world-renowned" chefs will compete for $100,000. The money will be given to their favorite charity. The format hasn't changed: the quickfire and the elimination challenges remain, but there will be a five-star grading system implemented.

There are 24 chefs, but I will have to trust the producers with their use of the words "world-renowned" since I'm just an average guy. One of the few chefs I know is Top Chef guest judge Wylie Dufresne, who is well known for his work on molecular gastronomy. The contestants' bios are available on the Bravo website.

The Simpsons: Apocalypse Cow - VIDEO

by Richard Keller, posted Apr 28th 2008 1:25AM

In Apocalypse Cow, Bart comes very close to marrying one of Cletus' children

(S19E17) "Sorry, Lise. I can't be a vegetarian. I love the taste of death." -- Bart Simpson

Another Bart-centric episode, which means another decent installment of The Simpsons. It's unfortunate that these types of episodes couldn't have been dispersed more evenly throughout the season. This would have made for a less Homer-centric run of shows during the first half of the year -- something that many fans (or maybe just me) were expressing concern about.

Tin Man: Part Three

by Kristin Sample, posted Dec 5th 2007 8:05AM
Tin Man Cast(E03) So, I thought that last night's Tin Man was a vast improvement from the first night. Sunday night felt like a Sci-Fi Channel rip-off of the original story -- slightly modernized with scarier special effects (scarier in comparison to the overall-wearing lollipop-holding munchkins).

By contrast, Monday night proved that Tin Man had its own story to tell. This was a story that would use the Wizard of Oz as a jumping off point and rethink the classic.

Tin Man: Part Two

Tin Man(E02) After reading the comments about last night's part one of Tin Man, I'm a bit skeptical about how many people will (or won't for that matter) tune in tonight. Sure, plenty of people found it entertaining but those who hated it seemed to really loathe it.

For myself, I thought it was pretty good but I like the original story enough to find almost any variation of it amusing. I also know not to expect much from a Sci-Fi channel miniseries. So, I fully anticipated that the special effects would be inconsistent and the dialogue would be insipid.

Nevertheless, the actors were good, great even. Alan Cumming is a genius and Neal McDonough is good enough as the embittered ex-Tin Man. I didn't think that Zooey Deschanel was that bad either--so many people complained about her. She does have an abrupt delivery though (which doesn't work well with some of her mediocre lines).
