Do we have a Nirvana reunion on our hands with Sir Paul McCartney stepping in for the late Kurt Cobain?
Oh, please say it’s true!
Rumors are running wild that Paul might just be playing with former Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic for the 12-12-12: Concert for Sandy Relief …
The 26-year-old Hollywood hunk looked dapper in a perfectly fitted grey suit as he took a seat next to the late night guru to dish about a range of topics including his experiences portraying the character of John Reid (aka The Lone Ranger).
While dishing about the dangers of working with trained animals during production, Armie explained that the original plan of letting “a horse bite scorpions off of his face” had to be changed.
“I showed up on set and I said ‘ok great we are gonna do the things with the scorpions right’ and Gore [the director] was like ‘I think we have to rework that…,’” the “Social Network” stud recalled, laughingly adding, “We were rehearsing with the dummy and the horse bit the dummy’s nose off.”
The Gore Verbinski directed movie follows an American spirit warrior Tonto, who recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid, a man of the law, into a legend of justice. Also starring Johnny Depp and Tom Wilkinson, “The Lone Ranger” is set to hit theaters on July 3, 2013.
The “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” stud chatted with Leno about his upcoming flick “Lawless” that hits theaters August 29th and his process of putting on weight for the role.
Shia explained, “Once [Tom] Hardy got cast, and Hardy is a big boy, then it became, ‘Are we really from the same fabric of man? Can I be your brother?’”
“Standing next to him I felt like Josh Groban… Listen I love Josh Groban by the way, I have a Josh Groban tattoo, so nothing against Josh Groban. I just felt really meek.”
“I gained about 40 pounds and he dropped a bit. It’s just eating. Your lifestyle becomes something else you know. Every three hours you’re consuming. Food becomes vitamins… It’s gorging. It’s horrible.”
After winning a gold medal at the Olympic games, one would think it’s time to celebrate with a relaxing vacation. For gold-medalist Gabby Douglas there are simpler tasks at hand.
During an appearance on the “Tonight Show” with Jay Leno on Monday (August 13), the history-making 16-year-old told the comedian, “I splurged on an Egg McMuffin at McDonald’s!”
Surprised by her response Leno asked, “Egg McMuffin?” The darling gymnast’s answer prompted a response from co-guest First Lady Michelle Obama who jokingly scolded her unhealthy desicion saying, “Yeah, Gabby, don’t encourage him,” adding,” I’m sure it was on a whole wheat McMuffin.”
The 48-year-old wife of President Barack Obama is no stranger to encouraging everyone in the United States to try and lead a healthier lifestyle and she added, “You’re setting me back Gabby!”
As the trio continued on with their fun-loving interview, Jay asked Gabby about winning her Olympic gold. The young athlete responded, “I think it’s very different and when I [say] different it’s in a better way,’ adding, “I never thought I would be doing the show with the First Lady, or even you Jay!”

When ordering a vodka martini in 2006′s Casino Royale, then-new Bond Daniel Craig responded to the question of “shaken or stirred” with a curt, “Do I look like I give a damn?” It was the informal announcement of a new, harder-edged Bond, one who, now that he mentioned it, did have sort of a primitive look that one couldn’t imagine discerns between shaken and stirred alcohol.
Well, this November, prepare for Bond to given even less of a damn about what he has to chug down to get wasted: Now he’s willing to drink Heineken.
In the noble Bond tradition of the spy selling watches, cars, or whatever else an advertiser will pay him to strap himself into, 007 will, for his next adventure, play a shill for Heineken USA. According to AdAge, the producers of the next Bond film, Skyfall, have made a deal with the beer distributor to feature Daniel Craig as his famous character in a new international television spot to be overseen creatively by Skyfall director Sam Mendes.
But Bond’s love of mediocre imported beer won’t be limited to the realm of commercials. The article continues, “In the movie, Bond will swap his trademark martini for a sip of the brew — at least in one scene.” So that should be good.
“Vodka martini… shaken, not stirred. Actually, hold on, wait. Do you have, like, Heineken here? I’ll have one of those. Little green bottle, not draught.”
“Well, yeah, of course it will be in a bottle. Who has Heineken draught? What, you think we’ve got a minikeg back there for all the secret agents who are so particular abou–”
“ALRIGHT. Forget it, then. I’ll just have an Amstel Light. Over ice.”

Closing out the week as one of the talk show’s celebrity guests, Christina Aguilera made an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Friday night (March 23).
The 31-year-old took the NBC Burbank Studios stage in a fabulous Alexander McQueen lace-effect fine-knit frock paired with Christian Louboutin Daffodile platform pumps while on hand to plug her NBC music competition show “The Voice”.
During the course of the interview, Leno played a video of Miss Aguilera and fellow coach Adam Levine arguing on the set of “The Voice,” after which Christina dubbed the Maroon 5 frontman as a wannabe Justin Timberlake.
Christina’s other topics of conversation included her profound admiration of the late Etta James and her Disney habit, while she topped it all off by being joined by her team from “The Voice” to singer with Rickey Minor and the band from “The Tonight Show”.
Paying a visit to the late night circuit, Kim Kardashian stopped by the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” at NBC Studios in Burbank, CA on Wednesday (March 21).
The brunette bombshell looked stunning in a white knee length dress with a floral lace embellished neckline while accessorizing with a white jade bracelet from Elizabeth Taylor and a slicked back ponytail.
Doing her best to bring in viewers, Miss Kardashian took to her Twitter page earlier in the day to remind fans of the television appearance, as she tweeted, “I’m on ‘The Tonight Show’ tonight 11.30pm on NBC http://bit.ly/GFk51G See you soon @JayLeno!”
Though we haven’t heard much talk of it yet, Leno got right to the questions everyone has been dying to hear about – including the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” starlet’s 72 day marriage with NBA player Kris Humphries.
The 31-year-old reality royalty explained that, when she knew the marriage wasn’t working anymore, she had to end it, saying, “I hear stories of people that were married for ten years, but they knew it wasn’t right, but they wanted to stick it out and then they involved kids. I want that forever and I believed in love, I still do, but I felt to be fair to everyone I knew I had to end it and I’m ok with that decision”
Kim also admitted that, when the whole thing happened, she wasn’t expecting it to bring such a firestorm, telling, “I didn’t know that the media would be so brutal with it, but I learned so many lessons about it and its changed who I am as a person I think for the better and the things that I care about in life have completely changed because of this so I really think everything happens for a reason.”
Making her media rounds, Elizabeth Olsen was spotted at “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” last night (February 29) in Burbank, California.
The “Martha Marcy May Marlene” starlet was in the house to promote her new film “Silent House,” due in theaters March 9th.
Elizabeth explained, “It’s a horror movie, but it’s told in one continuous shot. So it makes the suspense a little bit more intense in my opinion. And it’s about a family who is packing up their summer home, and then things just kind of go haywire and at the end you understand why.”
Olsen also talked about her college career, noting, “I’ve been taking time off, trying to figure out when I can be in school. I was in school full-time fall semester, [I’m] taking now off, and I have two classes left before I get my degree [in Theater Arts].”
Kicking off the week with a visit to the late night circuit, Taylor Swift was one of the guests on-hand at “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Monday (February 20).
The “Mean” singer prettied up the NBC Studios set in Burbank as she sat down with Leno to promote her upcoming movie “The Lorax,” which hits theaters on March 2nd.
Aside from plugging her new film, Miss Swift chatted about topics including what ‘mean’ really means and being stupid in love.
Of her tendency to be too trstful in others, the 22-year-old told, “I’m a Sagittarius and it says one of our major qualities is that we’re blindly optimistic. So when I’m in love I’m just stupid about it. And I trust people, constantly, and I’m always like, ‘I’m not gonna trust people anymore, I’m gonna be one of those dark, twisty girls who guys love because they’re all, like, guarded and stuff. And then I just trust people again… all the time!”
