Charlie Hunnam Breaks Silence After Exiting Fifty Shits of Grey

Charlie Hunnam is clearing the air.

The Sons of Anarchy actor exclusively broke his silence to E! News after stepping down from the role of Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

The Hollywood hunk made his first public appearance since the news broke at the 2nd annual "Hogs for Heart" event benefiting One Heart Source Education Programs in Africa at Mo's Restaurant in Burbank, Calif.

Charlie joined his SOA cast members as they hosted the evening's festivities.

So how is he holding up since dropping out of the highly anticipated flick?

WB President Does Not Deny Wonder Woman Will be Appearing In Batman Vs. Superman


While Zack Snyder filmed the first scenes for Batman vs. Superman this weekend, the rumor that Wonder Woman will make an appearance in the movie continues to spread online.

Variety got a chance to ask Greg Silverman, Warner Bros. president of creative development and worldwide production, on Monday whether the Man of Steel sequel will introduce other DC Comics such as Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and The Flash.

“We have been doing a lot of thinking for years about how to best use all those characters and we love them," Silverman said. "Wonder Woman is an amazing character. I think it's a great opportunity both for box office success, but also to have an amazingly powerful female superhero."

Considering he only mentioned Wonder Woman, the trade then specifically asked whether she is going to be part of the film, to which he replied: "We are taking it all very seriously and are trying to do a plan that's respectful to those characters and maximizes the stories as best they can. So everything that has been speculated are things that we've thought about."

It’s a boy!

Actress KaDee Strickland and her husband Jason Behr, 39, welcomed their first child, son Atticus, on Thursday, Oct. 17, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

The couple welcomed their baby boy into the world during an “intimate birth in their Los Angeles home with the assistance and care of midwives and a doula.”

The rep tells PEOPLE, “The family is overjoyed, happy and in great health.”

Former Private Practice star Strickland, 37, and former Roswell actor Behr — who announced in May that they were expecting — met on the set of their 2004 movie, Grudge, and were married in November 2006.

The flu has spread to Karen — does that narrow down the origins of the virus to either animals or water?

Cher: “Judy Garland’s Got Nothing On Me”

Britain’s Attitude Magazine held its annual awards in London on October 15, and the recipient of this year’s Legend Award was none other than god herself, Cher, who released her 25th studio album, Closer to the Truth, last month.

“I think this is the first one of these awards that I’ve ever accepted,” Cher told the raucous crowd of mostly gay men. “I always get a little bit nervous when someone wants to give you like a lifetime achievement award, because then somehow your lifetime means it’s over and you have to go home and knit or something like that. And I’m just not ready to do that.”

Cher talked about how gay men have been a part of her life since childhood, crediting her stunnnning mother for being way ahead of her time. “I was nine years old,” she explained. “And my mother had these two friends that came over, and the first time I saw them—they were hairdressers, of course—but the first time I saw them, they came cha-chaing into our front door… In the beginning, I actually thought that gay was code for fun.” [Ed. note: gagging]

The Oscar/Emmy/Grammy-winning icon went on to share a little real talk about the gays, whom she referred to as “my friends.”

“Gay men especially, they either love you or they don’t even notice that you’re on the planet,” she said, which elicited a collective squeal from the audience. “I think what you guys like is a strong woman who’s having a breakdown constantly. And that certainly is me. Judy Garland’s got nothing on me.”

Let’s be clear, the only person who could throw shade on Dorothy without alienating the gays is Cher.  Not Babs, not Madonna, not even Liza (who, at this point, is probably like “Judy who?”). Cher can do no wrong, because she’s been shutting shit down for the past 800 years. Everyone SHNAPOUTOFIT! and bow down.

Joaquin Phoenix & Emile Hirsch Named As Possibilities To Play John Belushi In Revived Biopic

In the world of forever-developing biopics, a movie about John Belushi remains one of the holy grails of sorts. In the works for years, last we heard, Todd Phillips and writer Steve Conrad ("The Weather Man," "The Pursuit of Happyness") were working on it with "The Hangover" filmmaker to direct, while names like Zach Galifianakis, Jack Black, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Ethan Suplee and Tyler Labine (who played Belushi in the 2005 TV movie "Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Mork & Mindy") were all named as considerations/wishlist types, but the project never went anywhere. But now, it's back.

THR reports that Conrad, hot off "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," is now gearing up to direct the project, with some fresh names tossed into the maybe-will-be-Belushi pile. Emile Hirsch and Adam Devine ("Workaholics") have both met with Conrad, while the most tantalizing prospect, Joaquin Phoenix, has also "surfaced" as a contender, though we have no idea what that actually means. Meanwhile, someone is going to have to play Belushi's pal Dan Aykroyd, and character actor Nelson Franklin has also apparently met for the part.

But like so many biopics, it's a long way from revived interest to actually getting money and shooting the thing, and as lively as Belushi's public and private life were, in this era of four-quadrant sure things, we don't see a major studio taking a gamble on something like this (particularly one that will be harder to sell overseas). That said, Warner Bros. is behind this one, and a spring 2014 shoot is being eyed, so maybe this one will have the right kind of budget to get a thumbs up from execs. But we'd guess it'll all boil down to who nabs that lead role.

Humanitarian Jennifer López Talks Body Image and Finding Her Way in Hollywood.

Believe it or not, Jennifer Lopez has her insecurities, but she's learned to accept who she is and be proud of her figure.

The 44-year-old singer/dancer/actress and "American Idol" judge opens up about her body image in Cosmopolitan for Latinas' Winter 2013 issue (on newsstands Oct. 29), explaining she fought through stereotypes to get where she is today.

“Early on, my family really made me love who I was and what I looked like. My body was nothing out of the ordinary in my neighborhood," J.Lo, who grew up in the Bronx, N.Y., tells the magazine.

"When I first started on television [as a Fly Girl on 'In Living Color'], people, and even my own manager at the time, would tell me I had to make all of these changes," she continues. "But you have to stand up and say, ‘There’s nothing wrong with me or my shape or who I am, you’re the one with the problem!’ And when you can really believe that, all of a sudden other people start believing too.”

And that confidence has taken her a long, long way. Not only is she selling out stadiums, but she's killing it on the big screen while judging contestants on "American Idol" and raising five-year-old twins as a single mom. (Not to mention she's currently dating 26-year-old Casper Smart.) So how does she balance it all?

“One day somebody told me I had to perform in front of 35,000 people on the set of 'Selena.' I didn’t know how to do it. I just said to myself: Don’t think about it. You can do this and you’ll be great," she explains. "I walked out onto that stage. And then I did. I’ve been following that rule ever since.”

CBS to air 'I Love Lucy Christmas Special'

The I LOVE LUCY CHRISTMAS SPECIAL, a one-hour special featuring two newly colorized back-to-back classic episodes of the 1950s series, will be broadcast Friday, Dec. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

The two episodes—the seldom-seen "Christmas Episode" and "Lucy's Italian Movie" (aka "Grape Stomping")—were colorized with a vintage look, a nod to the 1950s period in which the shows were filmed. The main titles and end credits of the two episodes are seamlessly combined into one set—at the beginning and end of the hour—with no interruption between the episodes.

The programs feature Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, and Vivian Vance and William Frawley as the Ricardos' friends and landlords, Fred and Ethel Mertz.

Collapse )

"I Love Lucy" aired on CBS from Oct. 15, 1951 until May 6, 1957. It was voted "the best TV show of all time" in a 2012 viewer poll conducted by People Magazine and ABC News.


I can't wait for the twitter/tumblr comments "What is I Love Lucy??"

Boy Meets Reunion Nostalgia with the Cast! GMA Segement!

Surprised at the obsessive torch that still burns online for Boy Meets World, a gentle TGIF sitcom that ended its 7-season run in 2000?
So is the comedy’s cast.
“I don’t think any of us anticipated that after the show went off the air, it was going to gain in popularity,” Danielle Fishel — who played smart, incredibly well-coiffed Topanga Lawrence — says in the below video, shot on the set of EW’s annual Reunions issue. But gain in popularity it did — so much that when the Disney Channel announced that it’s bringing some of the show’s most beloved characters back for a next-gen spinoff called Girl Meets World, the news nearly broke the Internet.
What can explain BMW‘s enduring pop-cultural stamp? It’s certainly not the show’s incredibly dated fashions, recalled with fondness by Lawrence, Rider Strong (a.k.a. bad boy Shawn Hunter), and Ben Savage (a.k.a. everykid Cory Matthews, the show’s titular “boy”). Instead, it’s Boy Meets World‘s unique brand of heart, humor… and fabulous hair. “I’m still not stoked on the hair,” Strong says of his famously floppy ’90s boy band cut. “You’re the only one who wasn’t stoked on your hair,” replies Fishel.
Watch the gang — including Will Friedle (older brother Eric Matthews), Lily Nicksay (younger sister Morgan Matthews, for two seasons), and William Daniels (consummate teacher Mr. Feeny, who followed Cory, Shawn, and Topanga from middle school to college) — reminisce below. Need more of a BMW fix? Mark Nov. 5 in your calendar — that’s when Boy Meets World: The Complete Collection finally arrives on DVD.

VIDEO is at the source since it won't embed. If you scroll down there's another video of the cast quizzing each other. William Daniels and Will Friedle share some cute anecdotes. :)

VH1′s TLC Biopic Draws 4.5 Million Viewers

"CrazySexyCool,” VH1’s flashy flick on the singing group TLC, became the most-watched original movie in network history Monday night.
It was also the highest rated original cable movie of the year among adults and women 18-49.
“CrazySexyCool” drew 4.5 million viewers, which is more than a lot of broadcast network sitcoms have been attracting this season.
The actual TLC became one of the most popular female groups of all time in the 1990s. “CrazySexyCool” was the title of their second album and spawned one of their five Grammy awards.

They sold some 65 million records worldwide despite a continuing undercurrent of tension both within the group and with various people outside it.
Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes died in a car accident in 2002. Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozanda “Chill” Thomas have performed on and off since then.
Monday’s film also sparked a surge in TLC downloads. Their new soundtrack for the film “20” rose from No. 43 to No. 5 on iTunes.
The movie will air again Sunday night at 8.


i enjoyed this biopic so much. it reminded me of how great their music is & to download the cds of theirs that i didn't already have.

Paramount Pictures, which is slated to release the movie in March, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The “Noah” trailer can be found by clicking here.

The trailer asks audiences to “rediscover the epic story of one man and the most remarkable event in our history.”


Edit: here's another link to the trailer.


Person of Interest: Batman Who? Taraji P. Henson Shows Everyone How It's Done

Shaw meets her match in a 10-year-old girl whose aptitude for surveillance could be the reason why her number has come up

"Razgovor" – When Shaw is tasked to stay close to a 10-year-old identified by The Machine, she grudgingly develops respect for the young girl’s skills in surveillance and realizes it could be the very reason why her number has come up. Meanwhile, Carter’s mission to bring the crime organization HR to justice risks exposure, on Person of Interest, Tuesday, Oct. 22 (10:01 – 11:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Guest Stars include Robert John Burke (omg whenever he pops up shit goes down, I love it), Morgan Spector (aka the late Frank Capone from Boardwalk Empire; what a good actor tbh, he’s been on PoI before and he always makes an impression) and Brian Wiles (aka Carter’s rookie partner who needs to have several seats). Also, the amazing Carter clip making the rounds (which can also be found in this post, of course) is from tonight’s episode so expect a lot of Carter awesomeness.

Jessica Lange Leaving 'American Horror Story' After Next Season

Jessica Lange will leave American Horror Story after one more season, the veteran actress divulged recently. The lead in the hit FX show will be one of just a few more roles she'll take before exiting the profession she's worked in for four decades.

"I am coming to the end of acting," Lange, 64, told the Los Angeles Times. "I have a list: another stage production, maybe one or two more movies, one more season of American Horror Story. . . and then that is it for me. Because I think that's enough. I want to go out with a bang. . . or should I say, a scare?"

Lange's roles on American Horror Story have been a late boon for the actress, revitalizing a career already dotted with big roles in movies like the Patsy Cline biopic Sweet Dreams, Tootsie and Blue Sky. (She picked up Oscars for last two in the Best Actress in a Supporting Role and Leading Role categories, respectively). Her turn as the creepy, meddling neighbor Constance Langdon on the first season of American Horror Story won her an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie, and she scored a nomination in the Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie category this year.

"It reenergized me; it reenergized my career," Lange added. "There's no shame in recognizing that. It's exposed me to a whole new generation, which is a little strange. I'm not used to young people thinking I'm cool."

Lange also opened up about how her role in the HBO movie Grey Gardens helped her find "the thrill of acting" again, inspiring her to go out on a limb and try a frightening job when American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy came calling. "The power of seduction got me here," she said. "He just charmed me. I don't watch TV – I had never seen Glee or Nip/Tuck. I knew of him by reputation. And the truth of the matter is, I just thought, 'Wow, nobody has done that song and dance for me in a long time.' I liked being wanted."

For now, Lange is back on the small screen scaring the daylights out of viewers as the powerful witch Fiona Goode in American Horror Story: Coven, the show's latest installment. The season premiered earlier this month.

NOOOOO :( I didn't want the rumors to be true.

The Great British Bake-Off: Ruby Tandoh doesn't deserve this hostility

The 21-year-old finalist is being punished for simply being a high-achieving woman who openly cares about what she does

'Tandoh has committed the terrible crime of caring visibly about the competition, when it’s widely agreed that women are silly things and baking is a silly, woman-y thing.'

Baking is a sort of alchemy. With precise judgment, a lot of practice and expert patience, the skilled kitchen craftsman learns to transform clouds of eggwhite into shiny-topped macarons, pools of molten chocolate into hard and gleaming tempered sheets, dusty heaps of flour and foaming yeast into elaborate plaits of yielding bread. And on Tuesday night, the oven timer of fate will go ping and another transformation will be complete: the winner of the Great British Bake Off will be declared and one amateur baker's life will change forever.

This isn't hyperbole: Bake Off is one of the few talent shows that has the power to launch a career, with previous contestants making the jump to pro cuisine thanks to the programme. The show comes trimmed with pastel bunting, and iced with the gloriously awful puns of presenters Mel and Sue, but beneath all that is a sponge layer of steely determination.

This is serious culinary business, and the judges and bakers never forget that. Harsh, then, that so much coverage has focused on the most negative reactions to the most competitive person in the competition, with journalists on tabloids and broadsheets across our great baking nation preheating their laptops to ask the critical question: why do people hate finalist Ruby Tandoh so much?

A history of high fashion and music: Madonna and Jean Paul Gaultier to Kanye West and himself

Toronto Fashion Week kicks off Monday in, well, Toronto. Music and fashion have always been linked, whether it's a designer creating a look for an artist, a band inspiring a look or an artist trying their hand at designing.

Artists from all kinds of genres have forged relationships with fashion designers. Think Katy Perry and the Blonds, Lady Gaga and Nicola Formichetti, Florence Welch and Gucci. Alexander Wang uses Azealia Banks and Die Antwoord for his ad campaigns. Willie Nelson is in a John Varvatos campaign, and of course Lyle Lovett has a line of shirts.

Mariah gives you MOMENTS on Instagram & isn't afraid to "knock somebody the f**k out"

Mariah Carey has grown frustrated with waiting for her damaged hand to get better - so much so she wants to punch someone in the face. The pop siren, 43, was left with her arm in a sling, having chipped her shoulder bone and cracked a rib during a fall when shooting a video back in July. But her road to recovery is still ongoing.

"When is my hand going to be back to normal? I'm so sick and tired of this. It's awful," the diva moaned on Instagram, showing off her still-bandaged arm. But she got her fighting spirit back when music executive Steve Stoute joked she must be wishing she could "punch somebody in the f***ing face", adding: "I want to knock somebody the f*** out!"

Last week, she revealed that she is free of her sling and able to raise her arm once more - and is gearing up for some power grabs during her ballads. "Right now the arm is back. We can have moments, darlings," she laughed on Instagram.

The curvaceous singer was forced to push back the release of her 14th studio album, The Art Of Letting Go, because of her injury. But she said: "When I'm ready, you'll be the first to know!"

Star Trek's Alice Eve Boards Chris Evans’ ’1:30 Train’

Alice Eve has landed the female lead opposite Chris Evans in his feature directorial debut “1:30 Train”.

Written by Ron Bass, the indie movie follows two people who meet in a train station and share a night of romantic adventures before the woman must catch the next train back to New York.

Evans will play a down-on-his-luck saxophone player who helps a young woman (Eve) in need and ends up falling for her. He will also serve as one of the producers (along with McG, and others).

Evans will shoot “1:30 Train” before he reprises his role as Captain America in Marvel’s sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”


'Beetlejuice' sequel: Tim Burton in talks to direct

Tim Burton loved making Beetlejuice. The 1988 ghoulish comedy, starring Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, and Michael Keaton as the ghost with the most, was his first big hit and the movie that established the director’s reputation as an eccentric master of the fun-house macabre that would soon blossom in Batman and Edward Scissorhands. In recent years, while promoting films like Dark Shadows and Frankenweenie, Burton often fielded questions about making a sequel, and he’s consistently expressed enthusiasm for the idea and revealed that he even tasked screenwriters Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg to come up with some new Beetlejuice ideas.

Now Warner Bros. is officially inviting Burton to direct the long-awaited follow-up, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Though Warner Bros. and Burton did not respond to requests for comment, sources have confirmed that discussions are happening. Still, the forward motion shouldn’t exactly be confused for downhill momentum. First off, Burton seems set to next direct an adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children for Fox. Secondly, Grahame-Smith and Katzenberg were intent on making their script a true Beetlejuice sequel centered on Michael Keaton’s character with Keaton. “The star of the movie has to be Michael Keaton as Beetlejuice, and it’s a true continuation 26 years later,” Grahame-Smith told EW in 2011. “Not just throwing him in as a cameo going, ‘Hey, it’s me. I endorse this movie.’”

Alas, Keaton hasn’t even read the most recent Beetlejuice script, according to a source. So you can keep humming along to “Jump in the Line,” but it seems like everyone’s feet are still planted firmly on the ground right now. At best, it feels like it’s almost shoooowtime.

ABC goes to Plan L; in talks to revive Body of Proof

Rigor mortis perhaps hasn’t quite set in with Body of Proof.

With Lucky 7 already cashed out and its other freshman dramas struggling, ABC may resurrect the cancelled procedural, our sister site Deadline reports.

Talks of the possible plucking-from-the-ashes are said to have started at the start of this TV season, and a final decision could come within the next month, as the likes of Betrayal and Wonderland either stabilize (or even rise), or slide further.

At this stage, it’s unclear who all — Dana Delany? Mark Valley? Gravedigger Michael Ausiello? — could be brought back for any possible Season 4.

Body of Proof, during its rejiggered third season, averaged 10.4 million total viewers and a 1.9 demo rating, with its out-of-season finale drawing 7.6 mil/1.2.

Wonderland with its second telecast dropped to 4.5 mil and a 1.2, while Betrayal this Sunday ticked up to 3.6 mil and a 0.9. Scandal repeats currently filling the Tuesdays-at-10 void aka BOP‘s old home have averaged about 2.8 mil and a 0.8.

RCA Execs on Britney's new album!


We’re feeling really good about the Britney album. We’re not quite sure how the credits are gonna be, but Will.i.am’s really the main creative on the album -- but he won’t be the only one. He has a lot of great songs. There’s a song we feel fairly strong will be the second single called “Perfume.” It was written by Sia and could be a big career song. It’s more of a downtempo song, but people are amazed at the quality of her vocals on it. She sings it beautifully and it has a real sincerity to it. And it’s outstanding -- I think people are not only gonna be surprised but also see another side of Britney. There’s a lot more personal content on this album than we’ve seen from her in the past.

FOX delays Almost Human premiere for 2 weeks

Fox has decided to delay the premiere of its new J.J. Abrams-produced drama Almost Human for a couple weeks. Instead of launching November 4, the series will now debut November 17 at 8 p.m., right after Fox's Sunday NFL doubleheader. Human will then settle into its regular timeslot, Mondays at 8, the following evening.

As a result, Bones will now stay on Mondays for a few more weeks (with original episodes) before finally moving to Fridays on Nov. 18. Fox hopes this plan will give Human a bigger push out of the gate, while also ensuring Sleepy Hollow has a proven lead-in when it returns with original episodes on November 4.

Nicolas Cage Criticizes Hollywood's Lack of Opportunities for Male Asian Actors

Nicolas Cage just wrapped up shooting on location in China for British director Nick Powell’s upcoming period drama Outcast, co-starring Hayden Christensen. But before Cage left the country, he gave an interview to Chinese state broadcaster CCTV, in which he reveals a few things about his role in the film, discusses his acting methods and speaks out against the dearth of lead roles offered to male Asian actors in Hollywood.

Answering a question about his experience working with the Chinese crew on Outcast, Cage took the opportunity to briefly turn the interview in a more serious direction.

After praising his female costar Liu Yifei's performance and saying how much he enjoyed working with the Chinese industry, Cage added: “I hope that we will see more Chinese actors in American cinema too. We do see Gong Li, Zhang Ziyi and Chow Yun Fat, but it’s very rare to see the Chinese male actor in Hollywood movies, which is something I take great umbrage with. You know, my son is Asian. He may want to direct one day; he may want to be an actor like his father -- and I want that to be open to him. So I want to make some kind of effort to see more of that happen in Hollywood.”

Outcast is the first film Cage – whose filmography spans some 75 films – has shot in China. He described the experience as positive and noted that he has "no doubt" China will soon surpass North America to become the world's largest film market, as many analysts have forecasted.

Apple unveils lighter iPad Air, new Macbook Pro, Mac Pro, etc.

Thinner. Lighter. Faster. That's what Apple promises in its newest iPad, which also has a new name: the iPad Air.

The company rolled out the fifth generation of its market-leading tablet Tuesday. Among its new features, the iPad will weigh 1 pound, down from 1.4 pounds. It's 20% thinner and 28% lighter than the current fourth-generation iPad.

The iPad Air will have the same 9.7-inch screen as previous iPads and pack the same A7 processing chip that's in the iPhone 5S. That will make it 72 times faster than the original iPad, according to Apple Senior Vice President Phil Schiller.

"This is our biggest leap forward ever with a full-size iPad," Schiller said.

The iPad Air will go on sale November 1. Prices will start at $499 for a 16GB Wi-Fi-only model and go up to $629 for a 16GB with 4G LTE connectivity.

Tori Kelly Talks New 'Foreword' EP

Tori Kelly is a breath of fresh air. Her voice is angelic yet, soulful and leaves you wanting more. No wonder she garnered the attention of Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun.

The "All In My Head " singer has been captivating Youtube users since 2006 with covers featuring chart-topping artists like Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean and Beyonce.

With the release of her EP ' Foreword', the 20-year old songbird wins overs fans with original tracks like 'Stained' and 'Dear No One" and gets one step closer to her debut album.

VIBE sat down with Kelly to talk about the record, musical influences and what's next for the new girl on the block.

"The EP has a double meaning," says Kelly. "It kind of represents me moving forward from my last EP that I put out with that sound. It just feels like a new fresh start and, also, it feels like the intro to my album or what's to come in the future."

Watch VIBE's interview above. We can't wait to hear more from this girl.


I LOVE her. I saw her in April and she's amazing live. the new EP is so good!

Arcade Fire on Colbert Report

By this point people have figured out that the Reflektors are, in fact, Arcade Fire, but the band stuck with the name last night on The Colbert Report, where the Canadian ensemble performed a pair of songs and Win and Will Butler answered (and sometimes parried) questions from Stephen Colbert about being the Reflektors and Haiti, where Arcade Fire recorded part of their new album, Reflektor.

Colbert told the brothers that he only knows two Canadian bands: Bachman Turner Overdrive and Arcade Fire, asking, "Which are the Reflektors more like?" Will Butler replied, "I just love 'Taking Care of Business.'"

After a quick discussion of "Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" – which included Colbert singing the chorus – he said, "I'm just glad you're not like Arcade Fire, though. Those guys: kind of pretentious."

Colbert also asked whether the band favors having people pay attention to their lyrics or "getting them on the dance floor to shake that ass?" Win Butler fielded that one: "I guess ideally you'd be shaking your ass with a little tear in your eye," he said.

When it came time to perform, the band started the song "Normal Person" with a feint, as people wearing large Arcade Fire heads mimed performing around Colbert's anchor desk before the camera shifted to the actual band members rocking out on the performance stage. Arcade Fire stuck around for another new song, "Afterlife," playing on a darkened stage as the glittering lights of a disco ball revolved around the room.

Arcade Fire's Colbert appearance is just their second TV gig as they prepare to release Reflektor on October 29th. The band also performed on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live, and played shows last Friday and Saturday in Brooklyn.

Gyllenhaal’s razor sharp cheekbones now protrude noticeably and the star insists he wanted his character Lou to be ‘literally and figuratively hungry’.
