[video] André 3000 on Playing Jimi Hendrix – David Letterman

3000 speaks to David Letterman on his upcoming role playing rock n roll legend Jimi Hendrix. I don’t think the Hendrix estate is in support of this movie at all, which has been reported to have detrimental effects on the success of these type of biopics.

There is reportedly no original Hendrix music used in the film due to the family’s blockage.We will see how it does.  I am adding the trailer after the cut just in case you haven’t seen it yet:

Letterman apologizes to wife on tonight’s show

Even with an apology he still is deep in trouble and this story is not going anywhere. The alleged blackmailer’s lawyer is chomping at the bit to cross examine Dave and all of his interoffice dirty deeds.

Don’t think this will get to trial, some type of plea and settlement will happen before a long drawn out trial destroys what’s left of Dave’s career.

David Letterman will use his opening monologue tonight to publicly apologize to his wife and his current and former colleagues, according to numerous audience members. “Wow, that weekend went fast,” he joked before turning serious during this afternoon’s taping, his first public appearance at the Ed Sullivan Theater since Thursday, when he revealed the extortion plot that arose from his sexual dalliances with subordinates.

“He apologized, he talked about how it was tough on his family and it was also tough on the people that work on the show and the women in particular, and it was real heartfelt,” an audience member told the local CBS affiliate. Guest Steve Martin later took the stage and lightened the mood, opening with, “So, how was your weekend?”

David Letterman marries longtime girlfriend

Congrats to Letterman for jumping the broom and not breaking his neck

NEW YORK (CNN) — Late-night talker David Letterman married his longtime girlfriend, Regina Lasko, last week, according to a transcript of the taping of his Monday night show.lettermangi

The wedding was at the courthouse in Choteau, Montana, on Thursday, he said, according to quotes from CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman” provided to CNN by Letterman’s publicist, Tom Keaney.

“Regina and I began dating in February of 1986, and I said, ‘Well, things are going pretty good, let’s just see what happens in about 10 years …,” he joked during the taping.

“I had avoided getting married pretty good [sic] for, like, 23 years, and … honestly, whether this happened or not, I secretly felt that men who were married admired me — like I was the last of the real gunslingers.”

Lasko is a former “Late Show” staffer. The couple have a son, Harry.

Letterman told his audience that the wedding almost didn’t happen after the couple, son in tow, got their pickup truck stuck in the mud on the way to the ceremony.

“So I get out of the truck and I walk two miles back to the house into a 50 mph wind. It’s not Beverly Hills, it’s Montana, for God’s sakes,’ ” he said. “And the whole way, I’m thinking, ‘See, smartass? See? See? You try to get married, this is what happens.’ ” Continue reading

McCain To Appear on Letterman, (Let the Ass Kissing Begin)

Now for a minute there I though David Letterman was really riding on John McCain for not appearing on his program and then blaming his absence on rushing to Washington to fix the ailing economy.

Well some serious ass kissing has taken place behind the scenes and McCain has relented and will supposedly appear on Letterman this Thursday.

It will be McCain’s 13th visit to the CBS program but his first since he angered Letterman by canceling last month.

Letterman was unhappy when McCain sat for an interview with Katie Couric instead of him on Sept. 24.

At the time he said he first felt like a “patriot” to let McCain off his commitment to deal with the economy but “now I’m feeling like an ugly date.”

A McCain spokeswoman said at the time that because of the economic crisis, the campaign “felt this wasn’t a night for comedy.”

[video] LMAO!!! Chris Rocks Disses Bill Clinton via The David Letterman Show

The always hilarious Chris Rock taskes Bill Clinton to task for failing to actually mention Barack Obama’s name when discussing the upcoming election. A bit of sour grapes I would say on the part of Clinton.

via Huffington Post

If you happened to catch The View this afternoon, you likely marveled at Bill Clinton’s ability to call the 2008 election for Barack Obama without actually suggesting that Obama, as a candidate, had any particular quality that would enable the win, which would instead come about through a confluence of happy electoral accidents. The former president, let us say, is nothing if not consistent in his sense of party loyalty, where party=the party in his pants.
