Kristen Wiig and Ellen DeGeneres Don't Know 'Let It Go,' but They Sing It Anyway (VIDEO)

Originally posted 09/16/2014 07:30AM

After the blizzard of videos of people singing Frozen's "Let It Go" hit the Internet, could there possibly be anyone on the planet still unfamiliar with the song?

Apparently, yes.

Monday on The Ellen Show, Ellen DeGeneres and guest Kristen Wiig both claimed that they – despite being show-business adults of sound mind and body – were entirely unfamiliar with the song.

So, they decided to perform a duet of it.

SNL Season Finale Recap: The Return of Andy Samberg … And Many Others

Originally posted 05/18/2014 10:00AM

Saturday Night Live generally keeps its departed cast members close, unless you've done something to really offend the show. So having Golden Globe winner and Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg on to host the last episode of the show's season wasn't a stretch, though the parade of alumni the show brought out at different points felt appropriately momentous for a season-closer.

Kristen Wiig Channels Harry Styles for Hilarious Jimmy Fallon Interview

Harry, is that you?

The parade of A-listers wishing new Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon good luck continued Tuesday with one of Britain's hottest boy banders.

Harry Styles stopped by for a chat with Fallon – or rather, Kristen Wiig did. The Saturday Night Live legend impersonated the pop singer for a hilariously unscripted interview.

The Bridesmaids star, wearing a v-neck T-shirt, stylish suit and wild wig, spoke in her normal voice and struggled to answer Fallon's interview questions.

"Your accent is different in person," Fallon noted. "Because you know, you're not from America."

"I'm from … England!" Wiig replied with some coaxing.

The Spoils of Babylon Review: Epic Nonsense Starring Tobey Maguire & Kristen Wiig

The Spoils of Babylon Review: Epic Nonsense Starring Tobey Maguire & Kristen Wiig

The Spoils of Babylon, premiering Thursday on IFC (10 p.m. ET/PT) and produced by Funny or Die, is more correctly titled – with a significant loss of magnificent pretentiousness – Eric Jonrosh's The Spoils of Babylon.

It also bills itself as an “epic television event,” but in truth boils down to a mere six half-hour episodes.

And although Babylon boasts a cast that starts somewhere in the A-list (Tobey Maguire, Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell), it stoops a little to accommodate a few highly respectable character actors (Tim Robbins, Michael Sheen). Then it improbably winds down to Haley Joel Osment, the former child star of The Sixth Sense, and Val Kilmer.

The debauchery of Wall Street comes to life in the latest film from director Martin Scorsese with strong performances from Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, although the final product leaves our critic feeling disappointed.

Meanwhile, can beautiful cinematography save The Secret Life of Walter Mitty?

Here's what to see (or not...) in theaters this weekend.
