Dennis Quaid Has A Major Meltdown

April 15th, 2015 9:15am EDT
Dennis Quaid Goes Viral With A Screaming On-Set Meltdown! Jimmy
Dennis Quaid seems like such a nice guy. At least from his movies, anyway ("The Parent Trap?" Come on). But there's a new viral vid circulating, and it does't exactly portray Quaid in the most positive light.

In the video, Quaid's on a movie set and screaming a string of expletives that are unprintable in almost every form of media. So here's the text of the video, after applying lots of clean-up.

"What the f#@k, keep going! I am acting here, and this d#@khead wanders onto my set! I can't even get a line out, until Dopey the D#@k starts whispering in your ear, and you're not even watching...

Why Does Maisie Williams Watch 'Game of Thrones' With Her Drunk Grandmother?

March 26th, 2015 8:23am EDT
'Game Of Thrones' Star Maisie Williams Watches The Show With Her
"Game of Thrones" is perhaps the least family-friendly show on television. Gather the whole family around -- parents, grandparents, young children -- and be revolted as writhing nude sex fiends are hacked apart with a broadsword.

But for Maisie Williams -- who stars in "Game of Thrones" as Arya Stark -- watching the show has to be a family affair.

As she explained to Jimmy Kimmel on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "We used to watch it with my nan, and my auntie, and my cousins, and my dogs, and the whole family, everyone."

That can get a bit awkward. Especially with Williams' 87-year-old grandma w...

Would you let Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe cut your hair? This random guy off the street did on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and the results aren't pretty.

The young fellow, ironically named Dan, is studying Event Planning in Florida with the hopes of being able to one day plan a musical festival. Being the good sport he is, he allowed Radcliffe to try cutting someone's hair for the first time - with his hair.

Jimmy's pal Guillermo helped out a little bit too and offered Dan a look in the mirror to see how the actor did, and it seems like he knew what he was getting himself into!

After showing a photo of Jason in-character as Khal Drogo in case they don't recognize him "with his shirt on," Jimmy added, "and it seems odd to me that this guy would play this guy," before showing a picture of an Aquaman ac...
