Conan O'Brien Is Headed For the Big Screen (Sort Of) In Syfy's 'Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda'

Whether it's Piranhacondas, Gatoroids, or Mansquitos, the Syfy channel has become the foremost creator of poorly-rendered monstrosities. Conan will fit right in.

Conan O'Brien Performs 'The Simpsons' Monorail Song Live At Hollywood Bowl

Why? Because life is nice sometimes. Adding more support to the argument that The Simpsons is enjoying a late-life resurgence, the series just completed a three-day run at The Hollywood Bowl, showcasing all its best musical numbers with an all-star cast of Simpsons voice talent and creators. And what would that showcase be without "The Monorail Song?" Not much. And what would "The Monorail Song" be without writer Conan O'Brien? Not much, either. The song was originally performed by Phil Hartman, who was murdered 16 years ago, so Conan took it upon himself to perform the song that he wrote. There's also some fun banter about how the song has been the bane of Conan's public existence. I could go into further detail, but just watch the awesome video.


Conan O'Brien Joined The 'Sons Of Anarchy' Last Night On His Show

He would be an amazing biker. Conan O'Brien treated his audience, and himself, to a three-minute cold open that followed the ginger talk show host as an outlaw biker. It's about as funny and ridiculous as you would expect. This was all done in honor of an appearance by the cast and creator of Sons of Anarchy on the show, which was equally surreal. After some really long shots of Conan trying his best to look menacing, the rest of the intro is him getting throw out of various storefronts. Or a stuntman with a Conan wig, if you want to be cynical about it. This is just the intro. If you want to see his interview with the cast, Deadline has a nice assembly of clips here.


[VIDEO] Sterling Archer Takes Conan O'Brien to the Danger Zone on <em>Conan</em>

The results were nothing short of explosive (phrasing?). By Jared Jones You guys remember how Scooby Doo used to have a different celebrity guest star almost every episode? One week it would be Don Knotts, then The Harlem Globetrotters the next. And that episode where Don Knotts played for The Harlem Globetrotters? Game. Changer. It's a strategy that Archer should consider adopting, is what I'm getting at. Last night on Conan, for instance, the world's deadliest spy welcomed the world's lankiest talk show host into his constantly awesome, animated world, and the results were nothing short of explosive (phrasing?). Despite being a sarcastic ginger who had never so much as held a gun before, O'Brien proved himself as quite the adept secret agent, helping Archer thwart a team of Russian mobsters who were probably just out to kill Cheryl/Carol like that old gypsy woman said. Check out the segment above and tell me a wheelhouse of regular guest celebrities like Conan isn't an idea that Archer should run with for an entire season. Think of it: In addition to bringing back former guests like Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant, and Anthony Bourdain, the Archer gang could find themselves battling an Italian mafioso headed by Joe Pesci, or enlisting the help of the POTUS himself to out a mole in the Secret Service. Or enlist the help of a Colombian brothel headed by Sofia out a mole in the Secret Service. Whatever works.


Conan O'Brien Had A Bitch Of A Time Getting Ready For The MTV Movie Awards

You gotta condition, homey. If you thought Christian Bale had a tough time keeping his American Hustle hair in check, it's nothing compared to what Conan O'Brien suffers through day-to-day. In fact, he had a tough time pulling it together before hosting the MTV Movie Awards. Things were pretty down to the wire but luckily he managed and the fourteen-year olds in the audience weren't deprived any of the jokes that went over their heads.


New Trailer: 'Conan O'Brien Can't Stop' And So He Didn't

The new documentary takes us back to a time many one year and a few months ago. It feels like "Conan" has been on TBS for forever now. I'm not sure how Conan O'Brien would feel about that statement, but I mean it as a compliment. As far as I'm concerned, we now have Coco in our lives again, and all that Leno stuff is water under the late night bridge. (By that I mean, the Brooklyn Bridge at night.) So the new documentary Conan O'Brien Can't Stop takes us back to a time many one year and a few months ago, where O'Brien left "The Tonight Show" and embarked on a 32-state tour of the country called "The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour." Looks like we're getting a close-up look at the man behind the red mop... but will we like what we see? Yeah, probably. Director Rodman Flender takes us into the Cone-Zone Jun 24, 2011 in limited release. You can read out our review of Conan O'Brien Can't Stop here.


Adrien Brody Channels His Inner Criss Angel In History Channel's 'Houdini' Trailer

Houdini was the original Mindfreak, only with fewer wallet chains. The History Channel, not be outshined by its peers, offering up programs on bird murderers, fat children in pageants, and people forced to pawn things, has decided to compete using the high(er) road. Biopics with somewhat big stars attached. In this case, angular man Adrien Brody will be playing the iconic showman. This time up, we're getting treated to the life of Harry Houdini, the only magician in history who didn't rely on glitter and lasers to get his point across. Fortunately, Harry Houdini's work was pretty theatrical, so this could translate better to television than a guy who keeps asking "Is this your card?" and tries to convince you that he just made you float. Houdini will be a two-part series airing on September 1 and 2 this fall. (Deadline)


Watch Conan O'Brien And Dave Franco Hit The Town As They Get on Tindr

Did anyone make Dave Franco apologize for 'Bad Neighbors' before doing this? Conan O'Brien really likes to surprise people via apps. He's got a track record of jumping in Lyft cars with Ice Cube, and now he's taking Dave Franco out to meet people using the dating/hookup app Tindr. I can't imagine that they really need the app. They could just stand on a corner and scream, "We're Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien. Ladies, come to us!" but that wouldn't really be as funny. This is funny, as you'll see.
