As Saul Berenson on Homeland, Mandy Patinkin can find anyone. But in real-life, the hirsute star of stage and screen had been stumped in his efforts to get in touch with a pair of ex-girlfriends from high school and college.
As Patinkin explained during a visit to Live with Kelly and Michael in December, he had been looking for a woman named Sandy, who had given him her first kiss. That appearance led to a few phone calls between the two grammar-school sweethearts, but no face-to-face meeting.
All that changed on Wednesday's show. As the Princess Bride star recounted the story to the hosts, a mysterious woman came up behind him – Sandy Hyman, live and in the flesh.
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.
He's only 8 years old, but little Akshat Singh has already made a big impression on Ellen Degeneres.
While visiting the Ellen set Monday – his first-ever visit to America – the India's Got Talent winner delighted the crowd with an acrobatic mix of cartwheels, headstands and pelvic thrusts
How does Singh explain his hoofing skills? "I dance every day for three hours, and I eat more," he explained.
Singh is the latest in a long line of precocious moppets to entrance the daytime talk-show host. Relive our favorite pint-sized Ellen guests below.
Matt Lanter plays an alien on the CW's Star-Crossed, and PEOPLE readers can't seem to get enough of his out-of-this-world talent and good looks.
I could be Fallon in love.
What do mom-dancing, hashtags and children's instruments have in common? They're all topics that Jimmy Fallon, with his one-of-a-kind ingenuity and enthusiasm, was able to mine for big laughs – and, once they hit the Web, big views.
Possibly more than any other show, Fallon's Late Night understood the science of making comedy bits go viral. The formula was easy to explain, but hard to master: Take a celebrity, give him or her a trending topic and find a cutesy, nostalgic spin, then hopefully watch the views roll in.
In honor of Fallon's assumption of the Tonight Show throne Monday night, enjoy this side-splitting collection of some of his most-viewed sketches:
In the new series Star-Crossed – premiering Monday on the CW – Matt Lanter plays Roman, a persecuted alien teenager on a future earth fighting against the prejudicial treatment of his people.
Bethenny Frankel can still do plenty of talking – just not on her own show.
Bethenny, the eponymous talk show hosted by the former reality star, has been canceled, PEOPLE has confirmed. Deadline.com reports low ratings doomed the show, although it appears she'll be ending her run in May on excellent terms.
"I had a blast doing this show with Telepictures," she says in a statement. "My entire staff worked so hard and made every day so much fun. I am thankful for the experience and for all my fans who tuned in every day."
When the highly anticipated second season of House of Cards drops Friday, actress Kate Mara will be a typical viewer ready to binge-watch.
Though she gained early access to the show's first season, Mara, 30, hasn't seen any of the political drama's new episodes, which Netflix will release all at once on Valentine's Day.
"I'm just as excited to watch it like anyone else," she tells GQ in the magazine's latest issue, on newsstands Feb. 25.
