Stephen Colbert Asks Justice Scalia to Make an Appearance on The Late Show

Stephen Colbert is bored. The Colbert Show taped its final episode on December 18, 2014, and since then Colbert has been biding his time and waiting for September 8, 2015, when The Late Show With Stephen Colbert premieres and America collectively remembers why we fell in love with his wit and commentary in the first place.

Donald Trump Reportedly Paid Actors to Cheer at His Presidential Campaign Rally

They say you have to project success in order to achieve success. And by some accounts, Donald Trump isn't afraid to pay to do just that.

THR obtained an email sent by a casting agency to a prospective actor detailing the assignment and the pay (a cash fee of $50 for about three hours of standing around and then occasionally, clapping, cheering, and holding up a sign.)

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 16, 2015 And while we may have strong feelings about Trump and the lunacy that will surround his campaign, his announcement is interesting because he did so by live-streaming it on Twitter using Periscope and see more

Jon Stewart Talks Religious Freedom With Rand Paul, Hilarity Ensues

If there's one thing Jon Stewart is good at (and there are, in fact, many things Jon Stewart is good at), it's calling out politicians on their blatant hypocrisies. That's why it was such a delight to see the host sit down with U.S. Senator Rand Paul last night to talk about what the concept of personal freedom really means—and, perhaps more important, what it doesn't mean. For example, on the topic of businesses that refuse to provide services for same-sex weddings in the name of "religious freedom," Stewart challenged the senator thusly: "It seems like gay marriage looms see more
