It's the Most Wonderful Prank of the Year

Jimmy Kimmel and his wife have a holiday tradition - well, sort of a tradition - with acting couple John Krasinski (from The Office) and Emily Blunt (most recently from Into The Woods).

They live across the street from one another, and for Christmas, they play pranks on each other.

This has been going on for a couple of years, and each year, the pranks get bigger and more out of control.

Watch the clip to see what Jimmy did to them last year - the thing he thought would bring the prank-feud to a conclusion.

And then watch to see watch Emily and John did to raise the bar considerably higher this year.

Nice to have that kind of money to throw away, but it is sort of fun to watch.

"Governor, This Is Barack Obama..."

What a fun moment.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick made his final appearance on Boston Public Radio yesterday, and got a very interesting phone call as part of his farewell.

President Barack Obama called in, identifying himself as a former resident of Somerville, a suburb of Boston.

The president spent some time in the state while a student at Harvard, and he's got a good relationship with the outgoing governor.

So why not call in?

Watch the video of the call. Seems legit to me.

Wrapping Up a Holiday Tradition

Darlene Love came to fame with the 1960s classic, "He's a Rebel."

But for close the three decades now, she's earned even more fame from her annual appearance on David Letterman's last show before Christmas to sing "Christmas" - aka "Baby Please Come Home."

She'll sing it one last time tonight, on Letterman's final show-before-Christmas. This time next year, Stephen Colbert will be sitting in Letterman's seat.

To get everyone in the mood, the folks at CBS put together a compilation of Darlene's appearances, blending them all together in one pretty spectacular rendition.

Enjoy - and be sure to set your DVR for tonight's performance...

Please Define "Top"

Scratching my head just a little.

US Magazine put out a list yesterday of the Top 14 Celebrity Instagram Photos of 2014.
Six of the 14 involve the Kardashians in some way - by that calculation, they're taking up 43% of the internet, which sounds right and wrong all at the same time.

The rest of the list:
  • Jessica Simpson in a bathing suit holding a golf club
  • Macauley Culkin wearing a T-shirt with Ryan Gosling on it
  • Jessa Duggar's wedding kiss
  • Taylor Swift's 4th of July party
  • Nick & Vanessa Lachey's pregnancy announcement
  • Lauren Conrad's haircut
  • Bethenny Frankel wearing her 4-year-old's Hello Kitty PJs
The only one that really belongs - or at least makes some sense in being relevant - is the post Diem Brown's boyfriend put up after her passing, expressing his grief.

Most Ridiculous Man of the Year

Here's a late-comer for the Most Ridiculous Man of the Year award.

A professional makeup artist in Manchester, England has reportedly spent about $150,000 for plastic surgery and more to look like his favorite reality TV star.

The star?

Kim Kardashian.

He's had lip fillers, laser hair removal and eyebrows tatooed on.

Take a look at the picture to see the results. And no, it is NOT Halloween. And he doesn't care what he looks like, according to The Sun, London's daily newspaper. "My look is all about the shock factor. I love all the attention and stares I get in the street. I welcome the hate — it just means more attention. And if anything, it just spurs me on to get more work done."

Good money chasing bad, folks. Especially since the guy looks more like the Octomom than the NorthWestmom.

Happy Holidays: Sheriff Santa

There's a guy in Missouri who gives away about $100,000 a year in $100 bills to random strangers.

This holiday season, he got a little bit of help - from the Jackson County Sheriff's Department in Kansas City.

The officers were handed a small pile of Benjamin Franklins and sent out on the street to help those who needed help.

What a terrific, feel-good story...

KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 12/18/2014

Sony Has Canceled the Release of "The Interview" . . . And North Korea Really IS to Blame

It seemed like a crazy idea that the nation of North Korea was actually behind the Sony pictures cyberattack because they wanted to stop the release of a SETH ROGEN / JAMES FRANCO movie but one U.S. official says it will be officially announced today that it's all TRUE.

U.S. officials have reportedly determined that North Korea orchestrated the massive hack and release of sensitive documents.

It'll be interesting to see how the government responds to this. PRESIDENT OBAMA'S only statement so far is that people should still go to the movies.

But we know how Sony responded. They actually pulled "The Interview" yesterday. And they said they currently have no plans to release it in ANY format, including Video on Demand.

The reaction on Twitter was immediate and most celebs were pretty upset by the decision.

ROB LOWE Tweeted, quote, "Wow. Everyone caved. The hackers won. An utter and complete victory for them. Wow. (Rob appears in the movie as himself.)

JIMMY KIMMEL called it, quote, "An un-American act of cowardice that validates terrorist actions and sets a terrifying precedent."

STEVE CARELL Tweeted, quote, "Sad day for creative expression."

(Carell is directly affected by this. He was supposed to star in a thriller he wrote about North Korea. But the project has been scrapped.)

And BILL MAHER said, quote, "Is that all it takes, an anonymous threat and the numbers 911, to throw free expression under the bus?"

A Theater in Texas Will Fight the Hackers By Showing "Team America: World Police"

The Alamo Drafthouse theater in Dallas / Fort Worth has come up with a solution to this business of Sony pulling "The Interview". They're replacing it with one free screening of "Team America: World Police".

That's the 2004 PUPPET movie made by the creators of "South Park", which very much ridicules KIM JONG UN's father, KIM JONG IL.

Theater employees will hand out American flags and other patriotic items. The movie will air December 27th at 7:00 P.M.

The theater says, quote, "THAT is how true American heroes will be celebrating this year, but if you want to let the terrorists win . . . well, that's your prerogative."

Did Justin Bieber Get Turned Down Because He Looks Like Ellen DeGeneres in Real Life?

JUSTIN BIEBER's new, platinum hairdo isn't helping his LOVE GAME.

The "New York Post" says Justin tried to hit on a woman at the Fresh Corn Grill in West Hollywood and she turned him down, saying he looks like ELLEN DEGENERES in person.

Justin wasn't happy to hear that, obviously, but there's no word if he said anything back to her.

Elton John is Getting Married This Weekend

ELTON JOHN and his longtime partner DAVID FURNISH are finally getting married this weekend. They've had a civil partnership since 2005 . . .

but gay marriage just became legal in Britain in March . . . so now they're making it happen.

Elton and David have been together since 1993, and they have two sons: Zachary, who'll be four on Christmas Day, and Elijah, who'll be two next month.

Happy Holidays: The Christmas Spirit

Not everyone's ready for the holiday, right?

Seems like it rushes up on you sometimes. Or maybe you're just not ready for it.

Sometimes, you need a little push.

Like Chris, who gets a visit and a sizeable nudge from a Jolly Old Elf.

A fun short film to get you in the spirit...

I Really Really Really Really Really Really Want This!

Dear Santa:

I know this is probably an impractical present, and that it will probably only survive one light dusting.

But Santa, I really really really really really really really want one of these.

A remote-control pickup with a snow plow attachment.

I've been really really really really good this year too.

Cancel The Interview, Please

Sony Pictures announced formally today that it will not now and maybe ever release the movie they'd scheduled for a Christmas debut, The Interview.

The film, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco as some newsmen recruited by the CIA to assassinate the leader of North Korea, drew the ire of North Korea's current ruler, who said its release would be considered an act of war.

More recently, someone hacked into Sony's servers, releasing sensitive information and threatening some drastic action if the film were released as planned.

Some interesting folks are not happy at all. Like Donald Trump... And Salman Rushdie... But, here's the question that everyone wants answered...
