Would You Buy Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Canine Period Pads? [VIDEO]

I love how Sarah Michelle Gellar decided to share this specific personal anecdote on Conan. I also wonder how many people turned the channel when she started talking about her dog’s “time of the month.”

“You Are Cordially Invited to Attend a Star Wars”: Episode VII As Directed by Wes Anderson [VIDEO]

Now that Star Wars: Episode VII has a writer, it’ll need a director. And with this audition tape, Wes Anderson—or, well, someone on the Conan staff with a good sense of Andersonian whimsy—has shown us what an Episode VII directed by the maestro of quirk might look like. There’s Junior Telescope Club member Han Solo, Boba Fett in a Steve Zissou-style red beanie, and a healthy amount of goldenrod yellow (of course). Oh, and Han shoots first.

Elijah Wood Doesn’t Really Know How to Sit on the Iron Throne, Does it Anyway

Elijah Wood is a pint-sized fanboy, and we love it. In Northern Ireland for an upcoming project, Wood used some of his good ol’ Frodo caché to score a visit to the set of Game of Thrones. He was so excited that he spent the descent of his flight in audibly humming the theme song. Once there, he got to experience something a shocking number of characters in the series have literally killed for: Sit in the Iron Throne. Too bad he’s not that good at it.

Maya Rudolph Describes That “Scorcese” Drinking Game and Her Boring Baby [Video]

If you caught the Screen Actors Guild Awards this past Sunday, you probably saw Maya Rudolph, Kristen Wiig, and Melissa McCarthy discussing the drinking game they invented. Every time someone mentions “Scorcese,” take a drink. McCarthy was kind enough to demonstrate at the awards show, and Rudolph provided some further explanation during a visit to Conan. Also part of the conversation: Why Rudolph turned to bear survival skills when she met Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and why her six-month-old son is so boring. (Hint: Because he’s only six months old, and she’s joking.)

The Women Of Conan The Barbarian, Better Than You Might Think

I’ll be honest, the only reason I was going to see the recent reboot of Conan the Barbarian was for its star Jason Momoa. Thanks to his time on HBO’s Game of Thrones, he’s now someone I follow (not in a creepy way). I wasn’t really a fan of the 1982 Conan and I had no illusions the film would be anything but a male-pandering, bloody escapade with lots of bared breasts. What I was surprised to find out was it was an excellent depiction of strong female characters. And lots of bared breasts.
