"Wishin' Boot" Is SNL's Surreal, Spot-On Country Song

Some boots are made for walking, others, like the one featured in this weekend's Saturday Night Live Digital Short "Wishin' Boot," are made for getting people out of jail and morphing into barn dogs. Smartly capitalizing on host Blake Shelton's strengths (carrying tunes as opposed to cracking jokes), this pitch perfect country music video parody co-stars Kate McKinnon and a very Wynonna Judd-looking Aidy Bryant singing the praises of a mysterious cowboy boot that "makes your dreams come true" when times are tough—and we mean tough, like being forced to raise your brothers in an old motel or facing SNL's Surreal, Spot-On Country Song">see more

Blake Shelton Hates Playing Games With Jimmy Fallon

If we learned one thing from country crooner Blake Shelton's appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, it's this: The guy is clearly not a Benedict Cumberbatch fan. (But that's probably just because he doesn't have the slightest idea who the Academy Award nominee is.) During a game of "The Whisper Challenge" (sort of like "The Telephone Game," except with headphones, lip-reading, and only two people), Shelton was completely shocked when Fallon guessed "Benedict Cumberbatch" correctly, having apparently assumed the name was a nonsensical phrase designed to confuse him: "That doesn't even mean anything!" Fallon helpfully pointed out see more

The Weekend Movie Forecast: Jennifer Aniston Gets Serious in Cake

Jennifer Aniston's turn in Cake would feel like blatant awards-season fishing if it weren't so damn well done. She plays Claire, a pill-popping woman with chronic pain who sees visions of a recently deceased support-group member (Anna Kendrick) and subsequently tracks down the woman's widower (Sam Worthington). It's Aniston's most confident and poised performance since 2002's The Good Girl and one that reveals scars much deeper than those on her character's face. It happens to land in theater today. Out January 23. see more

Jennifer Aniston and Jimmy Fallon Take the Words Out of Each Other's Mouths

Whether or not Jennifer Aniston deserved an Oscar nod for her makeup-free portrayal of a pill-popping pain patient in Cake is up for debate (unfortunately, the Academy didn't seem to think so), but there's no question she deserves some type of award for her performance alongside Jimmy Fallon in The Tonight Show's latest edition of "Lip Flip." Fallon definitely didn't go easy on the actress, riffing on everything from Sling Blade to Bonnaroo (while Aniston's eyebrows did an impressive job of playing along); Aniston, meanwhile, forced Fallon to switch from southern belle to stoned football fan, which led to see more

Conan O'Brien Assists Archer, Endorses Uber and Tinder

Fact: Conan O'Brien is pretty much as close as a human being can get to a cartoon character (not in a bad way, but come on, just look at the guy). So it made perfect sense for the talk-show host to get animated, literally, with everybody's favorite self-absorbed secret agent, Sterling Archer (the two-dimensional star of the FX series Archer). It made less sense, perhaps, for O'Brien to be shooting out the back of a car at Russian mobsters, but that was the whole point: Would Conan know how to load a gun? His feelings about Tinder ("I know see more

Rob Lowe Does a Dramatic Reading of James Franco's Poetry

What do Rob Lowe and James Franco have in common (besides The Interview)? They've both made utter fools of themselves on the Oscars stage (if you haven't seen Lowe's catastrophically horrible 1989 show opening duet with Snow White, do yourself a favor and watch it immediately), and they've both written books. Yup, books. Not only that, but Franco was apparently such a huge fan of Lowe's first book that he performed live readings of it in front of national monuments (before being shut down by the police), in a stunt that can only be described as, um, classic Franco. see more

SNL Lampoons Justin Bieber's Calvin Klein Ad

Say what you will about Justin Bieber's allegedly Photoshopped Calvin Klein ads, the campaign is worthwhile if only because it gave SNL's rising star Kate McKinnon the opportunity to go full-tilt fake tattoo with her already brilliant Bieber impression. Sure, we've seen McKinnon's dead-on imitation of Bieber's toddler-on-the-verge-of-a-tantrum pout in skits before, but something about this sketch (the boxer briefs? the drum solo? Cecily Strong's portrayal of long-suffering model Lara Stone?) propels this impersonation into the pantheon of great late-night celeb parodies. However, the Canadian pop star seemed to take the skewering in stride. see more

Johnny Depp: Barbie Enthusiast, Creepy Doll Collector

Naturally, one would expect Johnny Depp—he of the increasingly gravelly voice and undefinable accent—to have some pretty eccentric habits, but collecting Barbies? Tim Burton's favorite actor showed up on Jimmy Kimmel's couch last night to promote his upcoming film Mortdecai, and he revealed his intriguing process for developing some of the quirkiest characters (Willy Wonka, Captain Jack) in his repertoire: Playing Barbies with his daughter, Lily Rose. Of course, now that Lily's 15, Depp has had to abandon this particular technique, so Kimmel suggested having more kids, to which Depp replied: "Well, I got a lot of Barbies in see more

Gwyneth Paltrow Singing Broadway Versions of Hip-Hop Hits Is Awkward and Amazing

GOOP founder, sometimes actress, and professional conscious uncoupler Gwyneth Paltrow took a break from her ongoing feud with Martha Stewart last night to belt out some rap-inspired show tunes with Jimmy Fallon, reminding us in the process that, oh yeah, she's actually a really talented performer. Of course, this isn't the first time Paltrow and Fallon have teamed up for some seriously silly musical stylings, as anyone who remembers the duo's Mindy and Sky skit from SNL knows, but we've never had the pleasure of hearing Paltrow sing anything quite like Big Sean's "I Don't F*ck With You" before. see more
