Cool Videos: Celebrities Read Mean Tweets

I don't watch much of the late night talk show circuit. When I was a teenager I used to watch it all the time. I would start with Letterman then turn the channel to catch Conan. At one point I even watched Tom Snyder that's how into late night chatter I was. The only time I watch late night now is when someone I like is on, and I really have to be into them. One thing I'm hooked on...

Interview: Promised Land Star John Krasinski!

Simply put, John Krasinski may be the nicest actor in Hollywood. Sure there are a ton of these guys who you can sit with and really find out how cool they are, but John would top that list.

I was a Jim fan when I used to watch “The...
