Bill O'Reilly told Jon Stewart that he's been "too easy" on President Obama, and that recent cases of the Justice Department spying on reporters proves it.
Meetings between O'Reilly and Stewart are always great television: The liberal and conservative hosts have learned to play off each other and even occasionally find common ground, as they did on Wednesday's "Daily Show."Related Articles: Bill O'Reilly Condemns Jon Stewart to Hell -- But He's Already There (Video) 'Killing Jesus': Move Over, New Testament - Bill O'Reilly Has a Fresh Take on the Death of Christ
After a sun dappled excursion to Hawaii with his most recent family drama "The Descendants," Alexander Payne returns to his native Midwest in the aptly named "Nebraska," which debuted Thursday at the Cannes Film Festival.
It's another story of estranged parents and children and another road movie for an idiosyncratic director who has made a name for himself by contorting and collapsing the reliable genres to find something fresh and human in films like "Sideways" and "About Schmidt."Related Articles: Cannes Review: 'The Bling Ring' Rips Open the Fame Game Cannes Review: In 'Nebraska,' Alexander Payne Paints an American Life Ryan Gosling's 'Only God Forgives': Critics Really, Really Hate the Crime Drama
"Fast & the Furious 6" is widely expected to dominate the Memorial Day box office and potentially become the highest grossing film in the lucrative franchise's history.
For a franchise keep growing as it enters its second decade and sixth installment is nearly unheard of in Hollywood, where sequels tend to burn hot and fast, dying out quickly. Yet Universal Pictures has adroitly managed the car racing series by tapping into international markets, catering to under-appreciated moviegoing audiences and recognizing the power of Diesel fuel -- Vin Diesel that is.Related Articles: How an Extreme Movie Makeover Saved 'Fast & Furious' From Going Direct to DVD 'Fast & Furious 6' Review: Bypasses Logic and Drives Straight to the Pleasure Center
"Fast & Furious 6" has become a road race to riches without a finish line in sight.
Roaring into theaters Friday, the movie is expected to generate $80 million or more over the Memorial Day weekend -- astounding numbers for a franchise that is more than a decade old, and isn't "Star Wars" or "Indiana Jones."Related Articles: 6 Lessons Hollywood Needs to Learn From 'The Fast & The Furious' How the Battle Over 'Star Trek' Rights Killed J.J.

Vin Diesel's still got it, at least according to the women in Jay Leno's audience. Oh, and Leno himself, who swooned over Diesel's cover photo on this month's Men's Fitness magazine. Leno comically referred to the workout magazine as "my bible."
The segments got even more charming -- and slightly weirder -- from there.Related Articles: Vin Diesel Battles an Army of Bounty Hunters in 'Riddick' Trailer (Video) 'Fast & Furious 6' Full Trailer Takes Action to 'a Whole New Level' - Of Ridiculous (Video) Vin Diesel to Star in, Produce MGM's 'The Machine'
Stephen Colbert opened up Wednesday's "Colbert Report" by comparing his difficulty in selecting which Obama administration scandal to report on as akin to trying to pick which of your children to impeach.
Congress and Colbert chose to focus on the IRS' admission to targeting Tea Party groups -- who may or may not have eaten chips in Colbert's den -- apparently a big no-no in his household.Related Articles: 'Downton Abbey' Stars Cook Up a Hilarious 'Breaking Bad' Spoof on 'Colbert Report' (Video) 'Colbert' Cancels Tapings Without Explanation; New Episodes Expected 'Soon' 'Daily Show,' 'Colbert' Clips Return Online After Jon Stewart Blasts Viacom, DirecTV (Video)

Debauchery paid off in a big way for "The Hangover Part III," as the latest installment in the black-out franchise generated $3.1 million in late night screenings on Wednesday, according to studio estimates.
That's a strong number for midnight shows on a hump day, though it can't compete with the $10.4 million "The Hangover Part II" generated in late night screenings when it hit theaters two years ago. That figure stands as a record number for an R-rated release.Related Articles: 'The Hangover Part III' Review: Thank God for Peculiar, Perverse - and Outrageously Funny - Galifianakis 'Hangover' Director Todd Phillips Verbally Man-Handles Blogger (Video) Ryan Gosling's 'Only God Forgives': Critics Really, Really Hate the Crime Drama

The Cannes Film Festival grew wet again on Wednesday, while inside the theaters one film was greeted with critical storm clouds and another with only the sunniest of reactions.
And as Thursday began with Alexander Payne's "Nebraska" (early responses ranging from "sublime" to "respectable," from "maybe Payne's best" to "Payne's weakest"), the weather and the lines and the craziness began to wear on even the staunchest Cannes partisans.Related Articles: Cannes Review: Robert Redford's Actions Speak Much Louder Than Words in 'All Is Lost' Cannes Review: Soulless, Despicable 'Only God Forgives' Shuts Up and Slices Limbs Ryan Gosling's 'Only God Forgives': Critics Really, Really Hate the Crime Drama

Boy bands will be boy bands.
That's what music manager Scooter Braun is dealing with in a new video preview from The Wanted's upcoming E! reality show.
Braun famously manages boy musical wonder Justin Bieber, as well as pop stars Psy and Carly Rae Jepsen.
So, when he tells the boys that "you guys show up saying 'My voice is gone, because I went out last night' more than any group I've ever seen," Braun definitely has a point of reference and a pretty good example.Related Articles: E!

Reaction to Zach Braff's use of Kickstarter to fund his next indie film has been mixed, to say the least. But according to the "Scrubs" star, Woody Allen is "riveted" by it.
