James Arthur talks women and fame at Bizarre HQ

X FACTOR winner JAMES ARTHUR plans to make the most of his new fame – when it comes to meeting women.

He said: “I realise I’m not exactly Brad Pitt. I’m a bit of an ugly fucker so I’ll take what I can get while I can.

“Some of the girls I never had a hope of pulling are getting back in touch on Facebook now I’ve been on telly.”

He added: “There’s a long list of people I’d like to work with. EMELI SANDE is definitely on the list, as is DEVLIN.

ED SHEERAN has been in touch so hopefully we can do something at some point.”

A lot of X Factor winners have passed through Bizarre HQ over the years and few have lasted the distance.

But James is up there as one of the best blokes, with a genuine chance of success. He has already taken guidance from some big names — KELLY JONES and PLAN B to name just two.

And he is determined to make it — so he never has to drive a banger again.

Speaking in the office yesterday he told me: “I used to have an old Rover to get to gigs. I got up one day and it had been taken away for scrap. Hopefully that will never happen again.

“I’m ready to get an album out quickly. I don’t think I need a year away being trained or told how to perform. I’ve been doing pubs for years and have ten albums’ worth of material.

“I’ve got enough for my own stuff, others I can give to ONE DIRECTION or others.”

He was impressive on the show and improved all the way through.

The future looks good.

ten albums worth of material yassss <3 i hope this one is on his future hit album.

Golden Globe nominees share their reactions, JLaw continues to be a dumbfuck

Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook, Best Actress Musical/Comedy)
"I had no idea [the Golden Globes nominations were Thursday]. My agent called me at 5:30 and I thought the set of my movie had burned down, or Josh [Hutcherson] had died or something. I didn't realize! I was so tired! It's amazing. It was such an incredible part. All the blood, sweat and tears that everybody put in this movie, and how much it meant to everyone, we can all share it together. David and Bradley got the recognition they deserve. It's wonderful to be able to share it with everyone."

Wes Anderson (Moonrise Kingdom, Best Picture)
"I received this news by text message on the fast train to Berlin. The Hollywood Foreign Press has brightened a bleak snowy day in Germany for me. I could not be more pleased on behalf of our gang."

Ben Affleck (Argo, Best Director)
"I want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for honoring 'Argo' with five nominations,' Affleck said in a statement. 'These nominations reflect the courage and determination of real life heroes in the US, Canada, Iran and across the globe."

Rachel Weisz (The Deep Blue Sea, Best Actress in a Drama)
"I am deeply grateful for this nomination, and in particular, for the HFPA's recognition of the hard work and passion that Terence Davies brought to this wonderful British indie. I am thrilled that this nomination might allow his beautiful work to reach a larger audience."

L.A. Reid Leaving 'The X Factor'

The two-season judge and Epic Records chairman will not be returning for the Fox show's third season.


L.A. Reid is leaving "The X Factor."

The reality TV judge will not be returning to the Fox series for season three. The Epic Records chairman will return to his full-time gig of running the Sony music label with plans to invest renewed energy and vigor into developing new and signed talent.

"I have the utmost respect for Simon Cowell, he is the very best and I have had the opportunity to learn so much from him," said Reid. "Working with him on 'X Factor' has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience, I'm honored to have sat on the panel with such incredible talent."

"Of course I will miss the show, in my opinion Simon attracts the best talent, but I'm looking forward to getting back to my core business and the responsibility of running Epic Records," added Reid.

It is not yet known whether current judges Britney Spears or Demi Lovato will remain on board for season three, which has already been given the green light by Fox.

Wednesday's semifinals episode of "X Factor" averaged 7.8 million viewers and a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49. Overall, the series' second season is down in total viewership and the key demo, hovering around 9 million viewers per episode. (Season one saw an average of more than 12 million viewers per episode.) [BILLBOARD]

6 Awesome Things we learned from the Pacific Rim trailer

The first trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's sci-fi epic Pacific Rim has finally dropped, showing off a wild alternate future where Earth is under attack by giant monsters. So what details can we glean from our first peek of the mech-vs.-monsters action?

Some pretty interesting details popped up in the footage, which gives us a look into the world Del Toro (Hellboy) is building here. Pushed to the brink, humanity decides to build gigantic mechs to fight off the invading monsters. Does it sound like a hard sci-fi spin on Godzilla? Sure.

But it looks absolutely amazing, and with Del Toro at the helm, you know he can probably pull off the premise. I mean, this is the guy who adapted Hellboy in a grounded way that made the horned, half-demon antihero believable in the real world. If anyone can do mechs and monsters and make it work, it's him.

Matt Damon: “Michael Douglas Is A Wonderful Kisser”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Matt Damon sat down with Playboy to discuss his new HBO movie with Michael Douglas, Behind the Candelabra, in which he plays Scott Thorson to Douglas’ Liberace.

Among the things we learned: Michael Douglas apparently has pillowy soft lips, Damon learned to gay it up from the late Heath Ledger and he was never “offended” by those pesky gay rumors at the onset of his career.

On playing Liberace’s longtime lover:

These two men were deeply in love and in a real relationship—a marriage—long before there was gay marriage. That’s not an insignificant thing. The script is beautiful and relatable. Their conversations when they’re dressing or undressing or having a spat or getting ready for bed? That’s every marriage. It feels like you’re witnessing something really intimate you would normally see with a man and a woman, but instead it’s two men, which was thrilling. There’s stuff I think will make people uncomfortable. Great. It’s HBO—they can change the channel.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

On getting into character:

We both have a lot of gay friends, and we were not going to screw this up or bullshit it. It wasn’t the most natural thing in the world to do, though. Like, for one scene, I had to come out of a pool, go over to Michael, straddle him on a chaise lounge and start kissing him. And throughout the script, it’s not like I kiss him just once. We drew it up like a football plan.

The 75 Songs Eligible for the Best Original Song Oscar

Just yesterday we got a look at the 104 scores that will be gunning for the Best Original Score Oscar at the upcoming 85th Academy Awards, and today the Academy has unveiled the list of 75 songs that will be competing for the coveted Best Original Song trophy.  While the expected contenders like “Suddenly” from Les Miserables and “Song of the Lonely Mountain” from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey appear, one of the pleasant surprises is Adele’s “Skyfall” from Skyfall.

Since Adele’s magnificent Bond track draws a few cues from the franchise’s theme, many assumed that the Academy might rule it ineligible for the Best Original Song trophy.  Not so, it appears, and now it looks like Adele just might land herself an Academy Award to keep those 47 Grammys company.  Also of note, Matthew McConaughey could find himself a Best Original Song nominee for “Ladies of Tampa” from Magic Mike. MAKE THIS HAPPEN, PEOPLE.  Hit the jump to check out the full list.  The nominations for the 85th Academy Awards will be announced January 10th.

"Vampire Diaries" Cast Reads Fan Fiction Excerpts

What better way to get through the dreaded Vampire Diaries mid-season hiatus than with a little fanfiction?

When we visited the Atlanta set of the series a couple of months ago, we asked the cast to read some colorful fan-written stories about their characters. Of course, we didn’t just serve up the usual Delena/Stelena fare. Instead, we scoured the Web for fanfics dedicated to the show’s most under-served (read: non-existent) pairings, like say Elena and Alaric (R.I.P) or Caroline and Rebekah (shippers, we know you’re out there!).

Watch the video below to see Nina Dobrev, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig and Michael Trevino read fanfiction (while trying very hard to keep a straight face).

Ian McKellen to Anderson Cooper: 'I've Never Met a Gay Person Who's Regretted Coming Out'

Ian McKellen and Anderson Cooper sat down today to talk about The Hobbit, but spent part of the segment talking about being out and proud, and the progress on gay rights in the last 20 years.

Said McKellen, discussing a time when homosexuality was illegal: "I was making love until I was about 30 with my live-in boyfriend and we were breaking the law every time we had sex. Breaking the law. We could have been arrested. All the bad laws have gone. But there's a long way to go."

McKellen then praised Obama for coming out for marriage equality, eliciting a big round of applause from the audience.


I love the way Anderson defends himself saying he's always been out to his inner circle but it does put everyone else at ease when you are 100% out.

Ian is such a perfect man. Hope he beats prostate cancer.

X FACTOR LIVE DISCUSSION + Simon will sign E3, silent on 5H

The New Beatles are set to take on the charts.

As the final four X Factor competitors head to the semifinals, it's possible all will be signed to major record-label deals.

Asked whether he'd sign Emblem3 to his label -- even if they don't win -- Cowell told reporters, "I think there's a pretty good chance. I'm not going to let anyone else get them."

Adding, "There'll be some pretty big announcements at the end of the show."

Cowell kept mum on whether he had similar plans for his other remaining group, Fifth Harmony, but assured reporters that he would continue to "back both of them," rather than put all his eggs in Emblem3's basket.

XOXO, Conspicuous Consumption: How the Economy Killed 'Gossip Girl'

On a recent evening, as I weaved my way through a crowded Manhattan sidewalk, I phoned my boyfriend to tell him I'd be home late. Just before we hung up, I looked around nervously to make sure no one was overhearing our conversation, then lowered my voice to make a humiliating request: "Could you DVR Gossip Girl?"

This article is pretty interesting, but I think it's reaching a little bit. I think the main reason people quit watching Gossip Girl is because the writing got so terrible, not because people are angry about the financial crisis.

Justin Bieber's would-be murderer considered himself a spurned lover

An imprisoned U.S. man whose infatuation with Canadian singer Justin Bieber included a tattoo of the pop star on his leg has told investigators in New Mexico he hatched a plot to kill him.

Documents in a New Mexico court say Dana Martin, a convicted killer, told investigators he persuaded a man he met in prison and the man's nephew to kill the pop superstar, as well as Bieber’s bodyguard and two others not connected to the pop star.

Martin told investigators that Mark Staake and Tanner Ruane travelled east across the U.S., planning to be near a Bieber concert in New York City.

Gunman Opens Fire At A CT Elementary School

President Obama: "I know there's not a parent in America that doesn't feel the same overwhelming grief that I do.

The majority of those who died today were children, beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10.

They had their entire lives ahead of them, birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own."

Dressed in black fatigues and a military vest, a heavily armed man walked into a Connecticut elementary school Friday and opened fire, shattering the quiet of this southern New England town and leaving the nation reeling at the number of young lives lost.

Within minutes, 26 people were dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School -- 20 of them children. Among the six adults killed were Dawn Hochsprung, the school's beloved principal, and school psychologist Mary Sherlach.

The shooter, identified by three law enforcement officials as 20-year-old Adam Lanza, also was killed, apparently by his own hand. Separately, his mother's body was found at a Newtown residence.

"Stuff like this does not happen in Newtown," a tight-knit community of about 27,000 just outside Danbury, said Renee Burn, a local teacher at another school in town. In the past 10 years, only one homicide had previously been reported.

With the death toll at 26, the Newtown shooting is the second-deadliest school shooting in U.S. history, behind only the 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech that left 32 people dead.

"Evil visited this community today," Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy said of Friday's massacre.

Michael Pitt’s American Psyche


Photography by Jeff Bark

He might look like an angel, but Michael Pitt’s career has been built on a foundation of brutal violence, premeditated attacks, and heartless executions. So it’s surprising to hear that the actor, writer, model, musician, artist, and pugilist considers himself a pacifist—especially when he’s tearing into a slab of red meat.

One Direction's Right Direction: The Billboard Cover Story

As 2012 dawned, few American adults outside the most dedicated of Anglophiles knew much, if anything, about One Direction. In part, that's because the kind of boy-band pop One Direction had already turned into 2011's fastest-selling debut album in the United Kingdom (aided by the most preordered single in Sony Music history) doesn't target adults. And in part it's a matter of history: In the decade that passed since the peak of the boy-band craze led by Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync, the U.K. groups that kept the sound at the top of charts overseas were barely able to translate their success beyond a single on American shores.

Of course, One Direction would change all that, and write a little bit of history in the process.

Amanda Bynes' Hit-And-Run Charges Dismissed

Amanda Bynes has had a bad year, but perhaps her luck is changing.

RadarOnline reports the 26-year-old scored a "major legal victory," as two misdemeanor hit-and-run charges filed against her have been formally dismissed.

Bynes was reportedly able to reach a civil compromise in both cases, as the two separate victims agreed to dismiss the charges in favor of financial settlements, according to a source close to the situation.

"This is routinely done when both sides are able to come to an agreement, and there really is no need to pursue legal charges because damages to their respective vehicles was paid for,” the source explained to RadarOnline.

Bynes had pled not guilty to the charges, which were brought against her in September. The first charge stemmed from an incident in April, after the actress allegedly rear-ended another vehicle while driving an Enterprise rental car. The second charge was the result of an incident in August, as Bynes allegedly left the scene of a minor accident without exchanging information with the other driver.

The vehicular mishaps were just part of a string of bizarre behavior the actress displayed this year.


BROOKE MUELLER AT WAR With Charlie Over Twins


Brooke Mueller is so pissed off at Charlie Sheen, she had her relatives rip their twins out of Denise Richards' home, because Denise dared to ask Brooke if the kids could go to Charlie's XMAS party.

We broke the story ... Brooke asked Denise Richards to care for Bob and Max while she went through another round of rehab, and Denise happily obliged. Sources close to Charlie and his exes tell TMZ ... Denise called Brooke Tuesday to tell her she was taking the twins, along with her daughters, to Charlie's "Anger Management" kiddie Christmas party.

Our sources say Brooke exploded, saying, "Absolutely not," adding, that she didn't want Charlie anywhere near the kids. What's more, after the conversation, we're told Denise got a call from one of Brooke's lawyers threatening her if she dared to take the kids to the party.

Denise didn't take the kids, but Brooke was so angry ... the next day Brooke's mother Moira knocked at Denise's door and demanded to take the 2 kids away. Denise obliged.

Charlie wants Denise to care for the kids. In fact, Denise has cared for them many times before ... sometimes for a full month while Brooke dries out. But Brooke now has legal and physical custody, so she's in the driver's seat.

As for why Brooke is so pissed off at Charlie ... we're told it's because Brooke fired their long-time nanny because she felt the woman was ratting her out to Charlie, and Charlie wants to hire the nanny back because she's a stable force for the kids.

Trespasser with knife arrested at Taylor Swift's Nashville property at 2am

 – A man was arrested overnight for allegedly trespassing at a home linked to Taylor Swift.

24-year old Jacob Kulke was booked at around 2 a.m. Friday on a criminal trespassing charge. According to an affidavit, Kulke went to the estate in Belle Meade, climbed a fence and a secured gate.

When he ran into security he claimed that he was in contact with the person at the address through social media, that he was dating her and that he wanted to surprise her for her birthday. Incidentally, Taylor celebrated her 23rd birthday on Thursday.

He claimed he had taken a bus from Wisconsin, and then a taxi from the Nashville bus stop. Police also said he had a knife on him when he was arrested.

Taylor Swift reportedly purchased the 6,000 square foot mansion for family members last year, although it is listed as being purchased by a trustee named Michael J. Moore.

The affidavit indicates that IT personnel confirmed there had not been any "social media" contact between Kulke and Swift; however, NewsChannel 5 discovered a Twitter believed to belong to Kulke where he wished her "Happy Birthday" on Thursday.

Swift recently told Cosmopolitan about her problems with stalkers. "Over the past couple of years it’s got worse. I get told if there’s been an attempt or a threat. My security text me a picture and say, ‘Look out for this dude; he’s driven across the country, he’s off his meds,’ or something like that. No one has ever been successful in getting into my house or anything like that. I have an amazing security team.”

"I just try to be safe and be conscious of people around me. It’s something you just have to deal with. It’s the price you pay for getting to do what you love. You can let it take over your life and make you fearful all the time, or you can live your life in spite of it.”

Kulke has a criminal past -- TMZ has learned he was convicted of battery, disorderly conduct and drug possession in Wisconsin back in 2010. He was placed on 13 months probation.He had previously been arrested for second degree burglary in Colorado, and there is a warrant out for his arrest in Colorado for a probation violation.

He was held in the Davidson County jail on $10,000 bond.

Little Mix begin their quest for US domination

One Direction Fuel Little Mix's Plans For U.S. Domination: Girl Power!

"X Factor" finalists Fifth Harmony might want to take some notes from Little Mix, a girl group that showed they can win "X Factor." Back in 2011, the foursome managed to take it all when they competed on the U.K. version of the series. Since being crowned the champs, they've had loads of success in their native U.K., including several chart-topping singles and a hit debut album, DNA, which they dropped last month.

Oh, yeah, they also happen to be besties with One Direction. They all not only met thanks to their "X Factor" ties, but also because member Perrie Edwards is dating Zayn Malik. But, that tidbit hasn't soured 1D's legion of female fans from scooping up the girls' music. In fact, they say, there's a lot of crossover.

"I think when we were on the 'X Factor,' anyway, a lot of our fans were One Direction fans before Perrie and Zayn even got together," Jade Thirlwall told MTV News on Thursday. "So we already had a lot of support from the 1D fans. And I think when Perrie and Zayn did get together, everyone was supportive of it and really kind of happy that two of their favorite bands were kind of getting together. But, yeah we have a lot of fans, whether it be One Direction ones or not."

As the girl group prepares to bring their music Stateside in 2013, they are hoping though that some of the U.S.'s love for 1D carries over to them. "I think like One Direction really opened the gate. With them, artists like Adele coming through America, it's been such a British year," Jade added. "With the Olympics and the whole royal family thing and all that stuff, I think everyone's just jumping on board Britain at the moment. It's nice to see and hopefully they'll still be waiting for us come next year."

While it's been quite the banner year for boy bands thanks to the success of 1D and The Wanted, Jesy Nelson hopes that next year will be all about the girls. She said, "Obviously the boys had been dominating this year and it's about time we get girl power in there. So that's our aim for next year."

Tonight's Haven pulled in wake of Connecticut school tragedy

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In the aftermath of Newtown, Conn.'s elementary school shooting, Syfy is pulling a Haven episode that was originally scheduled to air Friday that centered on a string of murders that took place at a high school.

Syfy issued a statement to The Hollywood Reporter regarding the decision: "Tonight's scheduled 10 p.m. episode of Haven contained scenes of fictitious violence in a high school. In light of today's tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, we have decided not to air it. At this time, no decision has been made as to when the episode will air."

Instead, the cable network will air a repeat of Eureka, the animated holiday episode "Do You See What I See," in Haven's usual 10 p.m. slot Friday. Haven's third season finale is scheduled to air next week.

President Barack Obama addressed the nation earlier in the day following the Newtown shooting, which took the lives of dozens of victims. "We're going to have to get together and take meaningful action," the president said. “As a country we have been through this too many times."

Definitely understandable and a good choice.

"I just want to convince people I'm not 5"2 and hairy," smiles Richard Armitage, sitting back in a comfortable chair at London's Claridges hotel. "That'll be the biggest challenge." The 41-year-old actor's concern is understandable: as dwarf leader Thorin Oakenshield in Peter Jackson's long-awaited Hobbit trilogy, he's shrunken and wigged-up beyond all recognition. So, let GQ settle it: in real life, Armitage cuts an enviably handsome figure. He's easily 6"1, lightly stubbled and today clad in a sleek J. Lindeberg suit with a plaid shirt and tie.After almost two decades on British TV in the likes of Spooks, Robin Hood and Chris Ryan's Strike Back, The Hobbit marks a step up for Armitage - into the newly world of global franchises and screaming fans. Arriving nine years after the release of The Return Of The King, the film is a visually stunning return to Middle Earth, shot in ultra-clear 3D - but by the time Howard Shore's inimitable score sets in,  and Andy Serkis is shouting "precious", it feels like we never left. Ahead of the film's release this weekend, we sat down with Armitage over a glass of wine to talk beard grooming, Hobbit obsessives and why Brits work best in the shire.

Update - Chris Evans' brother charged in drug bust - Drug confirmed as cocaine

Former One Life To Live actor (and sibling of a celebrity) Scott Evans, the brother of Captain America star Chris Evans, has been arrested and charged with allegedly trying to purchase cocaine on Tuesday, December 4 in Hollywood, California.

The former One Life to Live cast member, who played Officer Oliver Fish in the soap opera, is accused of attempting to buy the drugs from an undercover police officer.

The incident took place on Tuesday, December 4 in Hollywood, California, reports E! Online.

Evans has now been charged with one count of attempted possession of a controlled substance.

He appeared to respond to the arrest on his Facebook page that morning: "Most ridiculous night of my life in LA so far. At least I made it a year before getting arrested," reads a post on a page attributed to the actor.

His next film Behaving Badly - which also stars Selena Gomez, Cary Elwes, Heather Graham and Dylan McDermott - is currently in post-production and slated for release next year.


Update Updated: Evans was in criminal court today for his arraignment with his high-powered lawyer Shepard Kopp and entered a plea of not guilty to the cocaine charge. He's due back in court on January 14th.

Lindsay Lohan Prosecutors 'Absolutely Confident' They Can Prove She Is Habitual Liar

The prosecutors handling Lindsay Lohan's upcoming probation violation hearing are confident that there is more than enough evidence to prove that the embattled actress is a habitual liar, and will implore Commissioner Jane Godfrey to send her back to jail, a source close to the situation tells exclusively.

"Prosecutors are going after Lindsay with a vengeance because of her flagrant disregard for the law," the source says. "The LA City Attorney's office will present evidence to Commissioner Jane Godfrey that Lindsay has a long storied history of lying to cops. Prosecutors want Commissioner Godfrey to sentence Lindsay to 245 days behind bars for the probation violation."

As previously reported, Lindsay's probation was formally revoked Wednesday morning, but her lawyer, Shawn Holley postponed the starlet's arraignment on three new charges of lying to the cops stemming from a car accident in Santa Monica, Calif. last summer.

Godfrey formally set Lohan's new arraignment date to January 15, and Lindsay is required to be in court. At that time, a date will formally be set for Lohan's probation violation hearing.

'X Factor' winner James Arthur video for 'Impossible' released

James Arthur has released an accompanying video for his track 'Impossible'.
The debut single from the 2012 X Factor winner passed Cheryl Cole to become the fastest-selling single of the year this week.

The clip is comprised of footage from The X Factor, and tracks Arthur's journey from his initial audition to his triumph in the final on Sunday (December 9).
'Impossible' also broke download records with its release earlier in the week, with 187,000 downloads in the first 24 hours on sale making it the fastest-selling X Factor single ever.
However, the sales success stands in marked contrast to the television show's fortunes, with the final being the lowest-rated X Factor final ever.
There are rumors that next year Simon Cowell will engineer a head-to-head battle against Strictly Come Dancing, which consistently beat its ITV1 rival in the ratings this year.


I would have liked some new footage of him singing the song but bow to king arthur regardless

The Wanted Coming To Your TV Soon!

The Wanted land TV show pilot

Boyband The Wanted are set to star in their own reality series documenting their life in L.A. next year.

The Irish Daily Star reports Irish member of the boyband Siva Kaneswaren (24) as saying: "We don't know what's going to happen, but if The Saturdays do it, so can we".

It is believed that the five-piece will set up house in Los Angeles for three months next year as they continue to crack the American market. The Saturdays are soon to be seen in their reality show for American network E! and it is believed The Wanted will have their show produced by the network as well.

Two of the five members will also have their girlfriends feature in the show - Irish shoe designer Nareesha McCaffrey, girlfriend of Kaneswaren, and Tom Parker's partner Kelsey Hardwick.

A Hollywood heavyweight could also bring success to the boys' show, as Lindsay Lohan has been spotted hanging out with the band backstage and on their tour bus throughout their recent live dates in America.

Lohan has fuelled speculation that she is dating frontman of the band Max George following his split earlier this year from Coronation Street's Michelle Keegan.

1. they really need the money cuz they're broke.
2. YAY For seeing Queen Nareesha on TV!
4. lol at tw's LA stalkers cuz they won't be able to stand outside their hotel for hours and hours anymore.

Homeland Round-Up: Mandy Interview, Q&A with the EPs, and Predictions on the Finale

If there is one takeaway here, it’s that Mandy Patinkin is not Saul Berenson.

The actor swung by Good Day NY on Wednesday to discuss the Homeland finale airing on Sunday, but then something even more exciting than terrorists working with the CIA happened: anchor Dave Price had to slip away mid-interview because his wife was having a baby…and that was simply the greatest, most overwhelming news Patinkin had ever heard.

Just a sampling of his exclamations: “Oh my God, how thrilling!” “Oh my God, that’s the most exciting thing I’ve ever had happen!” “To hell with me, let’s cut away to the hospital!” “This is the most exciting show I’ve ever been on, a baby is being born!”

The co-anchor tried to turn the interview back to getting some Homeland intel, but Patinkin was not having it at all and just had more questions: Boy or girl? Was this his first child? He also seemed overwhelmed and concerned about how viewers would find out if the baby was OK. The whole thing was incredibly endearing and makes me more concerned than ever about Saul’s finale fate. I need Patinkin on my television.

Watch his escalating excitement below (whenever you think it’s over, a new wave of joy hits!)

And yes, GDNY updated their website with the happy baby news. Hopefully someone also clued in Patinkin.
