Just because Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler are no longer on Saturday Night Live it doesn’t mean the end for this pairing and when Poehler appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers they took this opportunity to both get behind his desk and fire off a much needed edition of “Really!?! with Seth and Amy.”
Amazing and much needed. Please make this a regular thing.
Also on Late Night with Seth Meyers this week Channing Tatum discussed some of his answers from his Reddit AMA and it is as glorious as the original thing (though no mention of Gilbert).
Not only did Lizzy Caplan explain why she is better than Jon Hamm on Jimmy Kimmel Live! which led to a whole WB discussion, but she also answered the nudity questions (thanks again to Caplan and Ruth Wilson for bringing the word ‘Showtits’ into my life) by pointing out all the real life connections as Jimmy’s ex Sarah Silverman is on the show. Silverman’s boyfriend Michael Sheen is Caplan’s co-lead and love interest on Masters of Sex. Oh, Hollywood you do delight me.
Now Lizzy Caplan might be better than Jon Hamm at keeping her job on the WB, but he sure can throw a gummy bear and look super handsome while doing so.
As if this wasn’t obvious enough already, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon has given us another reason why we might need our very own Mandy Patinkin. There’s already The Princess Bride factor (a film I hadn’t seen until this year “Inconceivable!”), his musical talent and the all important magnificent Saul beard and now there’s more. That’s right Mandy Patinkin is the Candy Crush Whisperer and seeing as I’m currently stuck on level 140 I could do with some Patinkin in my life. As Claire Danes best put it at the 2012 Emmys “Mandy Patinkin, holla!”
There are just two episodes of The Office left which means that the cast are doing the late-night talk show rounds to promote the show. Last night John Krasinski (sporting a lovely post-Office beard) stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Krasinski introduced the world to lip sync battle; a game that gave both John Krasinski and Jimmy Fallon a chance to show off their best lip sync skills. A range of songs were performed from several genres giving both men the opportunity to try and out emote the other. As with most of the games on Late Night this segment is a lot of fun, especially when you get to the Boyz II Men big finish (involving some clothing removal). There will be swooning.
