If Steven Spielberg's Lincoln ever heads to Broadway as a musical, it will have no trouble finding its leading man.
In a comical bit of Oscars mischief, Hugh Jackman showed up to The Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday dressed as the 16th president and proceeded to sing the opening line of the Gettysburg Address – to prove that he, and not Daniel Day-Lewis, deserves the Oscar for Best Actor.
"The truth is, I wanted to sway a few last-minute Oscar voters. I'll be honest. I mean, really, can Daniel Day-Lewis do this?" Jackman said before breaking into song.

And the late-night war of words continues!
Following the back and forth bashing between Jimmy Kimmel, 45, and Jay Leno, 62, in 2010, Kimmel is at it again, now telling Playboy in its March issue (on newsstands Friday), "I always feel bad if I hurt anybody's feelings, but I don’t believe Jay Leno has actual feelings, and he doesn't seem to be that worried about other people's feelings."
Kimmel, who three years ago called Leno a "tattle-tale" for talking about him to Oprah Winfrey, goes on to say, "Strangely, I don't even like talking about him anymore. The only time I think about him is when I'm asked."

It was a late-night love fest in Brooklyn on Wednesday, as Jimmy Kimmel – broadcasting from New York City in the wake of Hurricane Sandy – realized a childhood dream of interviewing his hero, David Letterman, for the very first time.
"I'm more excited that he's here tonight than I'm able to explain," the ABC host, 44, said in introducing his CBS counterpart, whose career in late night stretches back to 1982.
Letterman, 65, who did two shows without an audience this week, returned the compliment, lauding Kimmel for being gracious despite their de facto rivalry.

David Letterman had better not set foot in Gotham City.
SPOILER ALERT: READ NO FURTHER if you plan to see The Dark Knight Rises, the final installment of director Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy – or if you have friends or family who intend to see The Dark Knight Rises, or if you do not want so much as a hint about the end of The Dark Knight Rises!
Okay, now that nobody is left reading ...

Whether she knew it or not, Jennifer Lawrence has been preparing for her Hunger Games role since she was a little girl.
The actress, who stars in the weekend smash film adaptation of the dystopian teen trilogy about a televised battle to the death, told David Letterman on Late Show this week that her two older brothers roughhoused with her growing up.
"I've got scars all over my body," she said. "The best part – they would fight each other over who could fight me."

Michelle Obama made a surprising confession Monday night about her dog, Bo.
"He is my son," the First Lady told David Letterman. "I have two girls – and a boy."
Obama has always said she considers herself the Mom-in-Chief, and in true mom form, she had nothing but praise for her furry kid. "Bo is wonderful," she said. "He is the smartest dog on the planet."

Is Nicolas Cage undead and loving it?
Addressing one of the more bizarre rumors about his personal life, the actor says he's almost certain he's not a time-traveling vampire whose image was said to have been captured in a Civil War-era photo of a man resembling Cage.
"I don't drink blood, and last time I looked in the mirror I had a reflection," Cage told David Letterman on Thursday night's Late Show.
Promoting his film Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengance, Cage does acknowledge he could be confused with the Tennessee man in the 1870 photo that an eBay seller had pitched as a "walking undead/vampire" who "reinvents himself once every 75 years."
"Let me say that there is a resemblance," says Cage, "but how can I be polite about this. It's a somewhat slowed-down version of me."
