The entertainment reporter for the FOX owned Washington, D.C. station caught up to LaBeouf on the red carpet of the premiere of the movie Fury. While LaBeouf managed not to break anything, he did blow kisses to an off-screen admirer and give short answers with little follow up.
Kristen Wiig, one of the movie’s stars, seemed confused after Parente asked if she had advice for going nude. “Uhm, do I have advice for going nude?” said Wiig, who then answered, “Moisturize?” After Parente then assured her she goes nude in the film he hadn’t seen, Wiig and co-star Bill Hader set him straight by saying, “Not this film.”
Check out the awkwardness that happens when you don’t do your research. Parente did, however, promise the two funny people he would see the film when it opens in Denver.

“What Super Bowl commercial?” asked Jackson who was live via satellite on the Los Angeles CW station. “You’re as crazy as the people on Twitter. I’m not Laurence Fishburne!”
Fishburne reprised his role as Morpheus in “The Matrix” movies for a Kia Super Bowl spot.
While Rubin tried to apologize, Jackson was having none of it. “We don’t all look alike!” said Jackson. “We may be all black and famous, but we don’t all look alike!”

Doug Kolk, entertainment reporter for Tribune’s Los Angeles CW affiliate KTLA, was doing live hits promoting the second coming of the “Arsenio Hall Show” outside the show’s studios when Arsenio himself appeared from a side entrance.
Arsenio seemed very excited that he had arrived just as Kolk was on live with Cleveland FOX affiliate WJW since he’s from Cleveland.
“Let me tell you something,” Hall said to Tracy McCool and Bill Martin. “A lot of people leave Cleveland and they don’t have a sense of pride. I took the bark with me ya’ll.” said Hall referring to his naming of a section of his show’s audience the “Dog Pound” as a salute to the hometown Cleveland Browns. “I’m not going to South Beach. I love ya’ll and I’m never letting anybody forget that I’m from Cleveland.” Read more
Los Angeles CBS O&O KCBS posted some exciting news on its website Thursday for fans of White Russians and the Coen brothers: a sequel to the 1998 cult hit “The Big Lebowski” was set to begin filming in October.
KCBS excitedly reported the return of “The Dude,” sourcing the story to the Examiner, only to eventually find out that the report was based on a hoax (and not a very complex one at that).
KCBS based its article on an Examiner post written by a guy whose title is Phoenix Cannabis Culture Examiner, and who runs a blog called WeedGeist. His story, in turn, appears to have been taken from a post on the website Super Official News with the byline “The Ass Press.” Read more

In an apparent parody of “Kony 2012″ director Jason Russell‘s naked meltdown in San Diego last week, actor Jason Biggs stripped down in the hallways of WGN after doing an interview with entertainment reporter Dean Richards.
According to Richards, Biggs got naked while his entourage filmed the scene for a web video. WGN security cameras captured it all on tape and the station posted it online, in addition to playing the footage during its newscasts. Read more
