Ford does Letterman

Posted by · 10:20 am · November 9th, 2010

I’m not all that high on Roger Michell’s “Morning Glory” or Harrison Ford’s gravelly-voiced portrayal of a curmudgeonly news man, but I enjoyed his sit-down with David Letterman last night.  Part two after the jump.  (Mike Ryan, meanwhile, charts the actor’s response to “Star Wars” questions throughout the years at Movieline.)

Phoenix “apologizes” as Letterman plays it straight

Posted by · 9:16 am · September 23rd, 2010

Joaquin Phoenix made his return to The Late Show last night following his performance art appearance a year and a half ago which made plenty of headlines.  With the reality of “I’m Still Here” out in the open, it made for a “how could you not know” session.  Letterman was reportedly in on the gag […]

Teasing Phoenix’s return to Letterman

Posted by · 4:48 pm · September 22nd, 2010

Now that the cat’s out of the bag on “I’m Still Here,” all eyes are on The Late Show tonight where Joaquin Phoenix parks it on David Letterman’s chair one more time. Courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, here’s a rather, well, nothing teaser clip of tonight’s appearance, which would have wrapped filming I guess about […]

Ryan Bingham does Letterman, ‘Junky Star’ getting raves

Posted by · 10:40 am · August 31st, 2010

I don’t know if everyone caught “The Late Show” last night, but last year’s Best Original Song winner, Ryan Bingham, took the stage with his band The Dead Horses to rock out the first single on their new album, “Junky Star.”  The album, produced by Oscar co-winner T Bone Burnett, released today. Here’s a clip […]

‘Avatar’ on late night

Posted by · 9:38 am · January 7th, 2010

Sigourney Weaver stopped by The Ed Sullivan Theater last night to talk “Avatar” with David Letterman.  My jaw dropped when she explains that the Weta guys spend 47 hours of manpower per each 1/24th of a second in translating the data received from the motion-capture sensors.  Wow. Check out the clip below, and after the […]

Baldwin on Letterman

Posted by · 11:14 am · December 30th, 2009

This is from the holiday episode, which aired 12/23.  Early in the interview they touch on the Oscar hosting gig and later, of course, there’s “It’s Complicated” talk.  And a great story mid-way through about when Baldwin met Burt Lancaster in an elevator.  Hilarious stuff.  Here’s part one, part two after the jump.

Carey Mulligan on Letterman

Posted by · 12:20 pm · October 8th, 2009

I love that Paul and the band played “Hot For Teacher” as she walked out.  She handled herself well, I thought.  But, let’s face it — it’s difficult not to think of Letterman’s scandal given the plot of the film.  Speaking of which, I think Letterman totally spoils the film toward the end (and a […]
