Seth Rogen, Jimmy Kimmel
The first season of HBO's True Detective came to an end Sunday, but viewers can now get a first look at Season 2.
With Jimmy Kimmel Live broadcasting from the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas this week, Kimmel introduced a teaser for Season 2 of the drama, featuring himself and Seth Rogen in the lead roles.
Johnny Sequoyah, Delroy Lindo
It's hard not to want to believe in talents like Alfonso Cuaron (of the amazing Gravity) and J.J. Abrams (no TV explanation necessary). These two very busy visionaries lend their names, and Cuaron his directing chops (in the pilot episode, anyway), for NBC's otherwise painfully derivative Believe (Monday, 10/9c), which plays like one of those middling Stephen King melodramas about supernaturally gifted children on the run for their lives.
Cuaron elevates the stock clichés with visual motifs of a butterfly providing mystical guidance and a dizzying flock of pigeons (my idea of a living nightmare) subduing a Big Bad Female Assassin in a loft. It's a handsome looking pilot, even at its most predictably familiar. And as Bo, the spunky little girl whose psychic and paranormal gifts seem to have no end — or, maddeningly, definition — Johnny Sequoyah is agreeable company, never too cute even when the script calls for Bo to be cloyingly precious. Because believe it or not, Believe feels it necessary to squelch the chase-thriller elements with schmaltzy subplots reminiscent of Fox's short-lived Touch. Bo knows goodness, and in between close calls as she eludes her well-funded potential kidnappers, she somehow finds time to inspire a young doctor to get past his crisis of confidence.
Toronto mayor Rob Ford is no stranger to public humiliation, and he got a healthy dose of it on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday.
If you wished this year's Oscar nominees suffered from a severe lack of cats and double rainbows, Jimmy Kimmel has you covered. The late-night host gave YouTube videos the big-screen trailer treatment during his post-Oscars special — with the help of a few friends, of course.
Frank Underwood might be great at playing politicians, but Kevin Spacey was board to play the piano in the trailer for Ameowadeus. The actor took on the iconic role of Keyboard Cat in the fake trailer, starring opposite Christoph Waltz, Ben Kingsley, Gary Oldman and Mandy Patinkin.
Minnie Driver, Ellen DeGeneres
This week, kids got together to film their own versions of the Best Picture Oscar nominees, with hilariously adorable results. Also adorable in a non-hilarious way: a paralyzed French bulldog learned to walk with the help of some prosthetic feet. In celebrity news, Ellen DeGeneres and Minnie Driver auditioned for Downton Abbey, Josh Groban saluted Jimmy Kimmel's 2,000th episode, and Fred Armisen and Jimmy Fallon paid tribute to The Beatles. And Netflix got in a few jabs at its competitor Amazon with a parody advertisement of its new "Drone to Home" DVD delivery service.
