Variety- Neil Patrick Harris has a long history of success at the CBS network, from his starring role on “How I Met Your Mother” to his multiple Emmy wins for hosting the Tony Awards. So it should come as no surprise that CBS was interested in the multitalented actor to replace David Letterman on “The Late Show.” Harris confirmed the news on Wednesday’s Howard Stern show that, before CBS hired Stephen Colbert for the “Late Show” post, network chief Leslie Moonves and entertainment head Nina Tassler pitched him the idea of taking over for either Letterman in the 11:30 slot or for outgoing Craig Ferguson at 12:30. “They called me in and sat me down and asked if that would be something that I’d be interested (in),”’ he told Stern, revealing that the duo even served him “fantastic” sushi at Moonves’ New York office. “I felt like I knew what my skill sets were, and I kind of knew what it is that I wanted to do after the show with (Moonves), so I was surprised he pitched me that idea,” Harris adds. Harris ultimately declined the opportunity because he didn’t have much of an interest in hosting a nightly show for a long time. “I think I would get bored of the repetition fast,” Harris admitted. But Harris isn’t ruling out the possibility of a weekly show at CBS. In fact, he pitched the executives the idea of hosting a variety program in the vein of “SNL.”

I don’t really see why Neil Patrick Harris is the world’s darling but whatever. I mean he’s kinda funny playing a pussy crazed guy because he is gay but what else is there? Song and dance man? Give me Hugh Jackman over Neil any day of the week, the guy is fucking Wolverine for Christ’s sake (and still in the closet gay).

HuffPost- Mekhi Phifer, best known for his role as Dr. Greg Pratt on NBC’s “ER,” has filed for bankruptcy, reports TMZ. The 39-year-old actor racked up approximately $1.2 million in back taxes, $50,000 in lawyer fees and $4,500 in back child support, according to court records obtained by TMZ. Legal documents also show he spends around $11,600 in monthly expenses, but pulls in only $7,500. In addition to his long run on “ER,” from 2002 to 2008, Phifer is also known for his role opposite Eminem in “8 Mile.” Recent projects include a minor role as Max in the film “Divergent” and a recurring role on the Showtime series, “House of Lies.”

It’s funny as shit to me when celebrities file for bankruptcy, like what the fuck. You literally have enough money to pay someone to count your money for you so this doesn’t happen. All you have to do is save some here and there and not knock up like 30 chicks and you should be golden. Evidently renting out fucking Disneyland for 4 people is not a good financial investment. Time to get back to hosting rap battles to make the rent, huh Mekhi.

PS He has one of the weirdest names that no one ever talks about being weird. Meh-ki Phifer.

Howard has been on fucking FIRE with his interviews lately. He’s the only guy in the world who can do an hour with Louis CK then turn around and do another hour with Seth Rogan and each interview is fucking hilarious. I love Seth because he is super talented and rich but seems like he could be a buddy of yours.

This is a longer interview but FULL of information. I’ve always known about Pharrell, like anyone else, and I knew he was a producer and sometime singer/rapper. I had no fucking clue how many hits this guy has written and produced. And now he is the top musician in the world with like 15 number one hits. Fucking unbelievable. He is absolutely a genius and talks about everything and anything Howard asks. If you have the time, listen to this.
Still hate that fucking hat.

Random commercials in between is kinda annoying, sorry not my video

This was before the White House Correspondents’ Dinner so it’s really cool to hear Howard tell Joel that he shouldn’t take the gig and then all the backlash after the actual performance. It’s also nice to see McHale out of his ‘Soup’ character and talk like a normal human being. He’s the taller version of David Spade and the funnier version of Daniel Tosh.

Maybe she was fired from Glee and she definitely broke up with Big Sean (who is a very small person). All I know is she hangs out in Mexico in tiny thong bikinis. Go Raiders!
Thanks TMZ for the pics

To me Spade has always been interesting because he looks like a girl, also like a rodent, yet he has fucked some of the hottest chicks on the planet. He was on one of the best eras in SNL history yet he was probably on the lower rung of funniest guy on the show. The whole thing with him and Chris Farley is strange too because his best friend and comedic partner died and he never seems emotional about it. But Howard gets the best out of interviews so give this one a listen.
