chris rock snl promo

As you may have heard, Chris Rock and Prince will be taking over Saturday Night Live this weekend (November 1). But because Prince is, well, Prince, Chris was left to shoot the promos with only the help of cast member Bobby Moynihan. Watch as the pair take to the streets of New York and try to hunt down the legendary singer (sort of), before having girls screaming at the mere mention of his name. Reminds me of myself in many ways.

The Ebola scare in America shouldn’t be taken lightly but there’s a lot of people out there being a bit ridiculous about it. Retailers are selling Ebola Halloween costumes online and there’s been some insane conspiracy theories about the virus. But leave it to Jim Carrey to bring a quick breath of comic relief to the situation. Last night, he personally tested David Letterman for Ebola on The Late Show.

Have you ever kissed a monkey or licked an airport toilet seat?

As it turns out, Daniel Radcliffe, who the entire world will forever recognize as Harry Potter, is another unsuspecting white male actor who just happens to be a massive hip-hop fan (although probably not as big as Ryan Phillippe. No, seriously). During his appearance on The Tonight Show last night, Jimmy Fallon decided to put Radcliffe’s knowledge and skills to the test with the almost impossible task of rapping Blackalicious’ “Alphabet Aerobics.” Only he nails it. Because, you know, he’s a wizard.

You’ve got True Detective coming up?
[Nodding] Mm-hmm. (For the record from sources involved in the negotiations: the deal is close, but not complete.)

It’s a great show.
Yeah, I’m really excited. I’ve just been prepping. It’s been almost a full year since I’ve been on camera, so I’m itching, man. I’m overdue. You’ve just got to grind it out. Even taking this year off was, I mean you want to work, but you also don’t want to just water it down and work for the sake of working. So, it was tough to sit a year out, keeping a finger crossed that I was going to get True.
