Talk of Eric the Actor passing. Sound effects from Mars Attacks!, comparing him to Austin Powers‘ Mini Me and his guest starring role on In Plain Sight..  Howard and Robin again saying how great Ray Donovan is.  Robin said she’s watching Guilty Pleasure with Juan Pablo and Jenna Jamison.

Tuesday’s show opened with a phony phone call using clips from Terminator “Who is you daddy and what does he do?”  Howard said he saw the first half of Gotham and it was really good.  He didn’t think a Batman story without Batman wouldn’t be any good, but the Commissioner Gordon back story was really good.  He will watch the rest of it.  Fred played Eric the Actor’s sound byte saying “Nanu Nanu” from Mork and Mindy that he recorded after Robin Williams died.

Lenny Kravitz was in studio and Howard asked him about his recording American Woman for Austin Powers.  He wouldn’t have recorded it, but the producers of the film requested he do a version of it.  It ended up buying new houses for the writers, The Guess Who, who Howard said must be thrilled.  Lenny said they were happy with it and the money they made as writers.  The song from Robin Hood by Bryan Adams kept his song that he produced for Madonna, Justify My Love, out of the #1 spot.  He said that the movie people put so much money into that song, his couldn’t compete.  Lenny was in Catching Fire, the Hunger Games sequel.  Howard asked him about being in the sequel, but Robin said his character was killed off.  Howard said he didn’t know; he didn’t see any of those.  Lenny said he got the job after the producer saw him in Precious.  Howard asked him if he had to audition for Precious.  Lenny said he’s never had to audition.  He turned down the role of Marvin Gaye in a biopic, which has never been made.  He said biopics don’t always work, but Ray was great.

He said she would be happy that her documentary Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work shot up to #2 on the Amazon list.  Ed Sheeran was in studio and said he’d always wanted to write a James Bond theme song.  Lots of AGT talk.  Gavin Rossdale was in studio and they talked about Sound City and how he should have been on that movie.  Kerri Kasem was in studio.  Howard said he wanted to send Liam Neeson’s Taken over to bring Casey’s body back.  Howard says Ray Donovan is better than ever.  Robin’s watching The Bachelor in Paradise, but Howard’s not; he just watches The Bachelor.

Week of 9.1.14  The Tapes Special

Gary said that the first movie he watched sitting on his crappy stool in his man-cave was Slumdog Millionaire.  Richard Simmons cried because Howard wouldn’t go see Prince of Tides with him.  The James Caan interview was replayed.  He talked about The Godfather and turning down the role in Superman. He said he’d gotten a call from Marlon asking him to do the movie because he was going to be in it, and he knew they’d have fun together.  James said he told Marlon that he was only going to be in the movie for a few minutes, but that James would be required to sign for two movies, plus he had to wear the costume.  He said Marlon laughed and hung up the phone.  He also turned down Kramer vs. Kramer because he thought it would be middle class bullshit picture, but turned into a great movie.  He said it’s like Love Story.  You watch it now and it’s awful – awful story, bad acting, everything, but it made a ton of money and won lots of awards, so you never know.  When Incubus was in studio, Fred played music from The Exorcist.  Lots of “Scott!” from Austin Powers when he didn’t get the correct button pushed for the Incubus performance.Gilbert Gottfried was in studio talking about being in Ford Fairlane playing a DJ.  He had called Howard to make sure it was ok with him that he took that role.  Howard had turned it down because he thought it was dumb, so he was fine with Gilbert for taking the job.  Gilbert was trying to impress Beetlejuice by telling him he’d been the voice in Aladdin and Return to Jafar, which he actually got to sing in that one.

High Pitch Mike talking about his trip to Disneyworld, and Artie ends up doing an entire monologue with High Pitch Mike as the Don from The Godfather. Gilbert Gottfried was in studio with Beetlejuice, who didn’t like him, even though they told him he had been the voice of the parrot in Alladin, worked with Eddie Murphy in Beverly Hills Cop and been in Problem Childs 1, 2 & 3 Howard and Robin had Gilbert do his impressions from Frankenstein, Dracula, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (the original) and sung Jerry Lewis’ song from Who’s Minding the Story or The Nutty Professor.  Beetle still didn’t like him.  They played the last time Henry Hill was in studio.  He who wrote the book that Goodfellas was based on.  They played tapes of JD sounding like Napoleon Dynamite.

On the Live Wrap Up Show:

Benjy said he liked Jersey Shore Massacre.  Said it will become a cult classic and that Sal and Richard were great. Later Benjy asked if the last scene in Revenge of the Nerds was rape and she thinks she’s having sex with someone else.  JD said that they ended up being a couple in the end, and she didn’t press charges, so she obviously was ok with it.  JD says it’s a great movie.  He called it art.  Jon Hein says John Goodman plays the best football coach ever on film.  JD had wanted to direct a film about Queen someday, and said he wanted it in the same vein as the Doors film.  He would have been ok directing gay sex, even though he thinks most sex in movies is gratuitous.  Benjy says his death in Sharknado 2 is not ambiguous- it’s biguous.  He says he’ll be in Sharknado 3 and they’ll bring his character back.  JD says they could make him the twin of the guy who died.

Week of 8.18.14

George Takei in studio.  He’s talking about his new documentary, To Be Takei.  There’s a scene where they drive by a billboard with a picture of William Shatner over his mouth and George says thats where it should be. Richard saw it and said it was awesome.  Said you get lots of insight into Brad and all the work that he does.  Richard said the best thing about the movie is learning more about Brad.   George says Howard opens the movie and has a wonderful comment, but that Brad steals the show.  After talking about their sex life and George taking the leftover soaps from hotels, Howard said that they left all the good stuff out of the documentary. Howard’s agent, Don Buchwald saw it and loved it.  George said his first  role was the overdubbing of the Japanese in the movie Rodan.  Howard said he loved that movie.  Then George was in Ice Palace with Richard Burton and Robert Ryan and then went on to Playhouse 90 Made in Japan. George is still angry with Arnold Schwarzenegger, and refuses to see any of the Expendibles movies.  Howard was talking about a power party he went to that had lots of heavy hitters.  He talked to Jamie Foxx and Robin said she still hates Django Unchained, and Howard said it’s still one of his favorites.  George said Boyhood is a great movie.

Howard was asking Eric the Actor about not being willing to play a gay guy.  Howard and George both mentioned great actors who’ve taken gay roles like in The Dallas Buyers’ Club and Brokeback Mountain.  Eric said he’s not homophobic because he watched the movie Philadelphia.  Robin said that even Will Smith, who played gay in Six Degrees of Separation wouldn’t deliver a gay kiss, so there is still that reluctance from big Hollywood stars to play gays.  Eric again plugged his appearance on Yucco’s Brickleberry.  Big Foot was in studio plugging his new movie The Jersey Shore Massacre.  He talked about putting his fingers up a postman’s ass for $50, but he wouldn’t kiss him.  Robin said that was the same rule Julia Roberts had in Pretty Woman-she wouldn’t kiss her clients, either.  Fred played a bit from the new film Cock (Shark)-Nado.  Wolfie was talking to convention goers, and asked fans which star was the meanest.  One fan said the girl from Tank Girl.  Howard didn’t know who that was, and Robin said she was also in A League of Their Own and Wolfie said she was in Break Point with Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, which Howard said he didn’t remembered.  The fan had given her $30, and she told him it was $60 for a autograph and a picture, and got up in his face screaming at him.  They wondered how she would get that much money.  George said he only gets $40 for an autograph at the conventions.  Wolfie said William Shatner gets $100.  George said he’d have to talk to Brad about changing his price.  George said he was in Larry Crowne with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts.

Week of 8.11.14 They’re Back Live

Howard said he saw David Bowie’s documentary, Said it was really good, but needed more concert footage.  From Mark’s Friggin.com:  Robin said in this movie Tony Visconte doesn’t have an English accent anymore. Howard asked if that was bullshit. Robin said he was from Brooklyn. Howard said that’s a mystery they’ll have to solve.

Howard was talking about Israel, and he says Jon Voigt wrote a pro-Israel article shaming other Hollywood stars from talking against Israel protecting himself.  Howard said Jon Voight is in Ray Donovan – and he loves that guy and loves the show. Howard says it shows that if Jon Voight understands what’s going on over there, it shows that you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out:  if you were getting your house burnt down, you’d beat that person up, wouldn’t you? Of course you would.

From MarksFriggin.com: Howard said he saw a movie called ”The Last Days Here” and asked if Richard saw it. Richard said he did and it was great. Howard said this band called Pentagram was around in the 70s. He said the lead singer was such a nightmare that the band fell apart. Howard said that they couldn’t perform because of the lead singer’s problems. Richard said they went to Gene Simmons house to be signed and they weren’t even able to do that right. Howard said the movie was so great. He said the ending is great. Howard said it’s so compelling. Richard said their music was so way ahead of their time.

Howard was talking about seeing Sharknado 2 Robin said it’s really compelling. Gary said he watched it with 12 people and no one wanted to turn it off.  Howard said “I was ready to see Benjy die a horrible death and they robbed me of that moment” because they went to black instead of showing him being eaten.  Howard says his belly falls out of his shirt.  Benjy said it does, but it’s his character’s belly.  Howard was talking to Richard about his alcoholism, and said he saw Roger Ebert’s Life Itself, and Roger was an alcoholic and just decided he needed to quit and he did.  Howard likes a new vampire show, The Strain, says it’s realistic. These guys actually eat people, they don’t fall in love.  Ralph called in to try to explain about a plane that there are old vampires and young ones.  AGT talk.

They’re excited Jeff Bridges will be in studio today.  The Big Lebowski is Richard’s favorite movie.  Asked him about working with Phillip Seymour Hoffman.  Robin saw Hoffman’s most recent A Most Wanted Man and said it’s really good. Robin said Starman was also great.  Jeff said in Star Man he was imitating a bird; Howard had always thought it was a child.  Robin reads off a huge list of his great movies: Tucker, Against all Odds, Crazy Heart., Fabulous Baker Boys,  Robin said after White Squall she wanted to learn how to sail.  They both loved Last Picture Show – Jeff really liked Cybill Shepherd, but she was with Bogdonavich at the time.  Had a 20 yrs reunion and made Texasville, and was as much fun making it as the first, seeing everyone 20 years later.   Howard says he loves that movie.  Howard asked him if his dad was embarrassed to be in Airplane, a movie that made a parody of his old roles.  He said his dad loved doing that and Howard said his dad was great in that.  He talked about Iron Man and doing lots of improv with the scenes, then compared it to working with Barbra Streisand in Mirror Has Two Faces, where she’s attentive to every detail.  Jeff said he loved working with her, it was a great experience.  He’s in to plug The Giver.  He’d wanted to do that one for years. Found a children’s book and tried to get it made.   He turned down Tom Hank’s role in  BIG-just didn’t feel right,.  He doesn’t remember if he turned it down or if he didn’t get the role, but Hanks was so good.  He saw the movie and enjoyed it so much.  Robin said she didn’t get Heaven’s Gate, but got Door In The Floor. Howard asked him about doing TV because it’s so good now, with shows like Breaking Bad.  Jeff said what really blew him away was True Detective.  Talked about Thunderbolt and Lightfoot that Clint Eastwood produced and he was up for an award. Howard said he’d heard that Clint was upset that Jeff was up for an award and he wasn’t.  Jeff said he’d never heard that.  Talking about King Kong and Jeff said the props department made a mistake and made 2 gigantic right hands.  Jessica Lange almost got crushed in the hands during the making of the film. Jeff said he saw a great movie on the plane, Chef.  Robin said she saw it and liked it, too.

Into commercial, they played the mashup with Scarface and Maria Menounous’ laugh.  For Hanzi, they played the Warner Brothers cartoon That’s All Folks, and then a Baba Booey parody to the Game of Thrones.

On Tuesday, Howard talked about the death of Robin Williams.  Talked about all his movies.  Howard said his performance in The Birdcage, the remake of La Cage aux Folles, was brilliant.  He could have screwed it up and played it over the top gay, but he was great in that.  He was in Good Morning Vietnam, and Mork and Mindy, World According to Garp, Moscow on the Hudson, Jumanji, Dead Poet’s Society, Awakenings, One Hour Photo, Jack.  Howard said this guy’s a genius, an amazing talent.  Eric the Actor called in, and Howard said he sounds like Robin Williams in Popeye.  Eric said his favorite Robin Williams film was Patch Adams, which wasn’t critically acclaimed, but Robin stood by it because he said the audience loved it.  Eric also loved Robin in the Night at the Museum movies.  Robin thought it was odd that Eric liked Robin Williams’ movies for kids.  Howard said that lots of people enjoyed that franchise, but then Robin said they were all 5!

Robin worries that Ben Affleck won’t be a good Batman.  She said he’s only good in things that he writes, like Goodwill Hunting and Argo.  The director of Bridesmaides and Heat , Paul Feig, is afraid to hire Eric the Actor, as he’s superstitious about Eric killing a project, and all the difficulties working with Eric presents.  Eric just recorded lines for Yucco’s show Brickelberry, and everyone hopes that stays on the air.  Also, the hope is that he stays off Walking Dead for the same reason.

On Sternthology, Gary Busey was on.  Talked about the Buddy Holly Story, and his son, Jake, who looks just like him and was in Starship Troopers.  Played Gilbert Gottfried in studio talking about being on the set of Beverly Hills Cop with Eddie Murphy.  He’d worked with Eddie for a season on SNL, but when Eddie walked on the set, he looked at Gilbert and said, “Don’t I know you from somewhere?”  Bernie Mac’s interview was replayed when he was plugging Mr. 3000 and talked about his breakthrough with Kings of Comedy.

On the Greg Fitzsimmons Show, the news was broken about the death of Robin Williams.  Talked about his great movies Mrs. Doubtfire, Goodwill Hunting, Fisher King.

Replay of Darryl Hanna, Quentin Tarrantino interview when they were promoting Kill Bill 2.  Howard loved the original and sequel, Robin wasn’t a fan of the first one, but said she was looking forward to the 2nd.  Warren Beatty’s interview was replayed when he was promoting Bulworth.  Robin said it was really funny, a great movie.  Howard said he can’t trust her opinion, because she liked the Last Action Hero, but that he’s going to see it because Halle Barrie looks like she’s got her hands all over Warren.  Said he chose well for his leading lady, and he’s going to go see it just to see her.  Howard said Bonnie and Clyde was one of the best movies ever, and then Robin reminded him of Heaven Can Wait, which they also both loved.  He told Warren that even if he didn’t bang all those broads, there’d still be stuff to talk about because he made all these good movies.  He asked him about Ishtar, wondered if Dustin was a pain in the ass? and then said he’s never seen it.    Warren said that Dustin wasn’t a pain in the ass and that Howard should do him a favor and watch that movie.  Opened show with scene from King of Comedy.  Eric the Actor’s call was played when he calls Johnny Fratto for a hit on a phone caller.  Artie & Howard say it’s like the Godfather.

Week of 7.28.14

Maggie Gyllenhaal was in studio.  Her mother was a screenwriter and wrote Running on Empty.  She’s in to plug her new TV movie/mini series airing this week The Honourable Woman.  Howard said that her career really took off after the film with James Spader, The Secretary.  He said Mr. Skin said that that film had the #1 scene men used for jerking off.  When Howard wondered if there was any sexual tension between the two during that movie, she said that one time he made a point of ordering really expensive chocolates that he ended up asking her into his side of the trailer to share with her.  Then he would come up to her in between scenes and touch behind her legs below her skirt, so yes, she was hot for him, but it was all prep for the movie, building up that tension so it would be real on screen.  Before that movie, James Spader was more known as a pretty boy from Sex, Lies and Videotape.  Howard asked her if any actor had been inappropriate with her during filming, and she said not any of the serious, great actors.  They’re too focused on their performance.  She was first in Donnie Darko with her younger brother Jake.  He got into acting before she did, and he got her the job.  She said when she met Jeff Bridges the day they started shooting Crazy Heart, he came up to her and said “Here’s my heart,” and she said she told him that she gave her heart back to him.  Said he was truly great to work with.  She was nominated for an Oscar for that movie, but Monique won for Precious.  She knew she wasn’t going to win, but said there was still that one moment when she thought she just might. When Howard asked her about being typecast after The Secretary, she said she was offered lots of those parts later, same way she was offered lots of girls out of jail pictures after Sherrybaby.

Maggie talked about her role in World Trade Center.  She felt she’d made an acting mistake in a scene when she was waiting for word on her husband.  She felt she should have played it more hopeful that there would have called to say he was fine instead of playing the scene with dread that it would be bad news.  She said they missed an opportunity for the dramatic fall.  She loved working with Oliver Stone on that movie.  She said he would have told her to play it differently if he would have felt that way, too.  He would tell her “You were so good this morning and now you’re awful!”  That could have destroyed her, but she knew that he liked her, so instead of just being hurt, she asked him “Can you help me?”  She said he took her hands in his and said, “Yes! I give you the power of Zeus!”  She said she didn’t work much with Heath Ledger in Batman, but had met him when he worked with her brother in Brokeback Mountain. She went on vacation with them and got close to him then.  Said they were brave those playing gay roles.  She said her husband, Peter Sarsgaard, also gets lots of gay roles.

Howard was talking to Richard Christy about playing drums with Metallica, and he asked him what they talked about.  Richard said they found they all loved the John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness.  so they talked about that and other horror movies.  The AGT cast was in studio.  Joan Rivers was in studio, and they talked about A Piece of Work, her documentary.  They also talked about Jerry Lewis.  Howard said his older movies are great, but Joan said he’s a bitter, unhappy man.  Lots of talk about Benjy’s Sharknado 2.

On the WUS, Jason and Jon Hein said the Lego Movie was awesome.

It’s a double d!”  When asked if  double d was a higher rating than the “2 man boobs up” he gave for Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox? he answered, “Yes!”  And, later, “If you missed my Guardians of the Galaxy review yesterday, I gave it three thumbs up (the third thumb being the little one in my pants)”

Week of 7.21.14

Two premieres of staff cameos in movies this week:  Ronnie’s My Man Is A Loser, and Benjy’s Sharknado 2.  Zach Braff was in studio.  He’s in the Broadway play of Woody Allen’s Bullets Over Broadway. Howard said he saw Woody Allen on Broadway in Play It Again, Sam with his parents when he was just a kid.  He thought Woody Allen was great in that.  Zach is in to plug his movie that he funded by Kick-Starter: Wish I Was Here.  He got Mandy Patinkin from Homeland for just one day to film his part.  They talked about Casey Casem’s body like a scene from Weekend at Bernies.  Howard wishes they would release all the footage that was left out of the movie Woodstock.  Says there were so many great performances that didn’t make the released movie.  James Garner died, and Howard talked about him known for being in Maverick and The Rockford Files.

Dan Bilzurian was in studio to plug his new movie The Equailizer, which opens in September.  He has been in Olympus Has Fallen and had to shave his beard.  He was in Lone Survivor and was one of the financiers, giving $1 million in exchange for a small part.  When he was cut out, he tried to sue, but dropped suit when he realized that he would get 1.5 million back from his investment.  The new Untitled James Brown Documentary was produced by Mick Jagger, as well as the movie Get on Up, that is also about James Brown.  A caller who saw Dawn of the Planet of the Apes complained that Gary needs to ok his side projects with Howard first.  Howard asked JD what movies he’s watched with his new girlfriend, and he said Three O’Clock High and Scarlett Johansson’s new movie, Lucy.  Howard asked him if that was any good, and JD couldn’t tell him.  Said it might be too artsy-fartsy for Howard, but Scarlett does get naked in a few scenes.  He said he’d do better to look those up on Mr. Skin than watch the whole movie.  Then Robin asked JD if she would like it, and he thought she would.

Eric the Actor called in and they played a new theme song using the Ack Ack from Mars Attacks!  Eric again denied he sounds like that, but then Fred played Eric saying “I don’t say Ack Ack!”, and said that’s where that sound byte comes from.  Robin said the The Rock, Dwayne Johnson was in the new Hercules movie.   He said he never would have guessed that The Rock would someday be making major motion pictures.  Howard said that those old Hercules movies were great with Victor Mature (was he thinking about Sampson and Delila? Steve Reeves was in 1958′s Hercules).  Robin said “Victor Mature didn’t go on to Streetcar Named Desire, Howard.”

On the WUS, they were talking to JD about going to romantic movies with your girlfriend.  He had said last week that he had watched Kentucky Fried Movie with her.  Ronnie said The Notebook didn’t make him cry, but he did tear up.  Gary said his son and some friends went to see The Fault In Our Stars and said they were laughing because it was so funny to hear the people behind them crying so hard they were choking, unable to breathe.  JD said he watched Just One of the Guys with his girlfriend as well as True Romance.  Then they talked about a Zach Efron movie where he’s a soldier and loses memory and he takes over the identity of a dead soldier and goes to visit his girlfriend, another Nicholas Sparks book (he also wrote The Notebook), this one called The Lucky One from 2012.  Ronnie said “…that was a pretty sad-ass movie.”  No one could remember the name of the movie, but they all saw it.  JD then calls Ronnie the Nicholas Sparks expert.  Michael Rapaport sat in on the WUS saying he called Gary to ask to come in to plug his documentary Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest and Gary never called him back.

The WUS goes to San Diego for ComicCon, and they talk about the flight.  Richard said he wanted Christmas in July, so he had Christmas Vacation loaded on his computer and he will watch it on the flight while quoting all the lines with Sal.  Jon said he felt sorry for whoever gets the 3rd seat.  Then they talked about when Richard and Sal go shopping together every Christmas and call it their Pretty Woman moment.  They try on jeans and check each others’ butts to make sure they fit right, and always end up buying the same brand and cut of jeans.  Talked about the Munsters TV show, and then the TV movie based on the series, Mockingbird Lane.

GEEKTIME! is back LIVE from ComicCon and Ralph talked tons of movies:  Inception, Spider Man, Evil Dead, Green Lantern, Batman, Thor, Batman vs. Superman, Drag Me To Hell, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Arrow, Avengers…

Week of 7.14.14 They’re Back Live!

There’s a new song for Eric the Actor by Eli Braden using “Ack Ack” from Mars Attacks!  JD has a new girlfriend, and he watched Kentucky Fried Movie with her.  Howard thought that was a mistake.  He needs to watch romantic stuff with her like The Bachelor.  Jenny McCarthy was in studio talking The View.  She is getting married within the next few months to Donnie Wahlberg who is in Blue Bloods and the reality show The Wahlbergers.  She is starting a new radio show on Sirius called “Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy.”  Howard said the Asian woman for The View should be Mr. Miyagi from Karate Kid.

Fred played a bumper from The House of Cards (Tards) with Wendy and Gary the Retard.  Nicole Bass was in for a Dating Game show, and Fred used his Fred Munster laugh.  Howard said that True Blood now truly blows.  He’s liking The Strain, at least the first episode.  Howard said he wants to see Life Itself, the movie about Roger Ebert.  He said he’s heard from Chas, Roger’s widow, and she’s real excited about the movie.  Robin said it’s getting great reviews, but Howard says it will make him too sad.  He said we’re all going out some way, but he wants to keep his dignity.  He says Roger was such a great talker and he lost his ability to talk.  He was a talker, but he never lost his spirit.  Howard wants to see the new Justin Theroux series The Leftovers.

John Oliver was in studio talking about his new show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and being on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show.  He said he got into a good college only because he went to a rough high school like the Hogwarts of schools.    He had known of Sasha Baron Coen, but he and his fellow students were surprised when they saw him doing Ali G, that it was brilliant.  They had had no idea how talented he was.   John said when he came to America, his agent told him not to sign any leases longer than 3 weeks, as America is known for firing its stars.  He said when he came to America, he was like Fievel Goes to America.  During the news, Robin talked about Sandra Bullock and her intruder.  Howard said she should take her Gravity money and spend it on more security!  Talking about JD and his new girlfriend.  Fred was doing them having a conversation, and Robin said the girl sounds like the woman from Throw Mama From the Train.

On The Tapes, Howard was talking about the movie The Secretary with James Spader.  Howard loved it, but Robin said she had to stop watching it it was so bad.  Howard said he loved the S & M – doesn’t like it in real life, but loves to watch it in the movies.  James Spader is a real creepy boss, and has his secretary bent over the desk for a day and a half.  And then he calls her in when she makes a mistake and it starts all over. The  James the Smelly Intern bit was played when they had him read his comedy play on the air that had no laughs.  Howard said it reminded him of Rupert Pupkim in the King of Comedy.

On the WUS, Ronnie has a cameo in the new movie My Man Is a Loser that’s opening this weekend with John Stamos.  Gary said that Stuttering John had a line and a half cameo in Osmosis Jones.

Week of 6.23.14

Melissa McCarthy was in studio.  She had been in Gilmore Girls.  Then she was in Bridesmades and Jason Bateman saw that and said he wanted her for the part in Identity Thief, even though that part had originally been written for a man.  Howard said he really liked that one. She’s in to plug her new movie Tammy.  Adam Levine was in studio to plug a new movie he’s in Begin Again that he made with Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo.

Week of 6.16.14

Jason Biggs was in studio.  He’s now in Orange is the New Black.  He said he was first in studio with Freddie Prinze, Jr. when he was plugging Boys and Girls, Howard thought he was in to plug American Pie, but he said when he was in studio last he was on Broadway in The Graduate with Kathleen Turner and Howard and Artie kept making fun of Kat-a-leen and he couldn’t talk because he had to see her that night.  He was in with his wife who he met on the set of My Best Friend’s Girl.  She was in the show Angel.  He was in Anything Else directed by Woody Allen, who hired him because he looks so Jewish.  During the making of the movie, Woody asked him what he was doing for the next holiday and he had to tell him he wasn’t Jewish, and his jaw dropped.

Howard said he’s panicking, thinking he’s way behind on watching all the new superhero movies.  He said he did see the 2nd Thor, which was shit.  Howard saw the last Game of Thrones and says that the entire rundown of the show is on the front page of the news.  It’s not a review, it’s a recap.  Robin wants to know “How is that news?”  Fred is playing the Machete laugh juxtaposed to Beetlejuice’s, and the Twilight Zone theme during an aspiring director’s call (Rinnell Reed?), and Mars Attacks! music for Eric’s call.  Sia was in studio and she wrote the song for the ending of Six Feet Under, which a caller said was the perfect song for the ending of that show.

MUTT tweeted:  Really enjoyed this weeks Robot chicken, thanks Seth Green on Adult Swim

AN IMDB-A TRACTION (CORRECTION):  It had been originally written here that Ralph said he was annoyed whenever Loki came on the screen in Thor 2 and the girls swooned.  IMDB-A now is printing a traction:  In June or 2014, Ralph Tweeted a rebuttal:  DUNNO what u guys are talkin about but whoever quoted me is a DOPE! Said NOTHING CLOSE to that..LOKI was BEST PART!What girls? Still have NO IDEA WTF ur talking about, saw a private screening…don’t think there were even any girls there!

Week of 6.9.14

Al Roker was in studio talking about making Sharknado 2 with Benjy.  Howard asked him if a Sharknado was ever actually possible, and Al said that the chances of this happening, the sharks surviving the tornado vortex, then surviving on land and then eating people are very low. Train was in studio and performed their new song. Howard said it had a cowboy sound, and Pat said it sounded like from a Tarantino movie like Django Unchained.  Robin said it was good that Howard interviewed Train’s backup singers.  She said ever since she’s seen the documentary 20 Feet From Stardom she is very sensitive to all that the girls add to the song.  In Robin’s news, she reported that a computer in Russia has now beaten some test that proves they are thinking, which she says is really scary.  Howard said that’s like The Terminator.

Sal watched Gettysberg or some 4 hour documentary on the Civil War and now knows all about the war, that it was fought over slavery.  He’d never known that before.  He’s going to watch a movie on WWII next.  Before he saw the movie, he thought the Confederate flag was something the Dukes of Hazard flew out of their car.  Mutt and then later a caller said told Howard that Sal needs to watch Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter to learn the history before the Civil War.  Howard said that was right, because the vampires were into the politics of what caused the war.  Howard watched the 2nd season of House of Cards over the weekend and said it’s really great.  Robin loves it, too.  The guy from Boardwalk Empire is going to be in the new Daredevil movie on Netflix.  Howard said Netflix hit a home run with House of Cards.  Robin said Netflix also has Orange is the New Black, which is also great.  Hugh Jackman, Wolverine, was the MC of the Tony’s last night.  Howard says Hugh is not gay, but it makes you wonder when you see him jumping around on stage like he did.  Howard said this week’s Game of Thrones was a horrible episode, but 2 cool things happened.  He won’t say because lots of people haven’t seen it yet.

Willie Nelson was in studio. He said he wrote On The Road Again for the movie Honeysuckle Rose.  He met his wife when she was doing makeup for a movie.  When Bobo called in to ask Howard what he thought about Arsenio being cancelled, Howard said that he had been booked on the show, and Howard was really looking forward to talking to him for lots of reasons, but one is that he’s in his favorite movie, Coming to America.  Halle Berry has to pay her ex-boyfriend. Howard said she hasn’t done anything since X-Men banging Billy Bob Thornton in Monster’s Ball, but Robin said she’s been in lots of stuff since then.  Sandra Bullock’s house was broken into, and Howard wondered how that could happen.  She was already a millionaire and then got tons of money from Gravity from starring in and also had the back end-why doesn’t she have better security?  Some AGT talk.
