Throughout Johnny Carson's messy "Tonight Show" succession, the media and general public seemed to take David Letterman's side. But actor Daniel Roebuck was always in Jay Leno's corner… even before he was cast as the victor of "The Tonight Show" war in the movie version of "The Late Shift."
Looks like we’re close to finding out what the actual title is for the upcoming third MCU “Spider-Man” movie. Or so we assume thanks to Tom Holland and his co-stars Jacob Batalon and Zendaya, who trolled fans on social media with an inspired set of bait-and-switch fakes. First up was Holland. “So excited to announce the new Spider-Man title. Can’t wait for you lot to see what we have been up to. Love from Atlanta,” Holland wrote on his Instagram. Exciting! But then this turned out to be the reveal: Tom Holland on Instagram Zing! “Spider-Man: Phone Home” is a pretty funny title but wait… One of the big reveals in “Far From Home” was that Nick Fury and Maria Hill turned out to be Skrull shapeshifters filling in for the real Nick and Maria who, for some reason, were off in space. Could this mean “Spider-Man” 3 actually will include an appearance by “E.T. the Extraterrestrial”? Just kidding. Also Read: Alfred Molina to Return as Doctor Octopus in 'Spider-Man 3' Next, Holland was topped by his co-star Jacob Batal0n, who posed what we think is an even funnier joke: Jacob Batal0n on Instagram “Spider-Man: Home-Wrecker” isn’t just a funny joke though, we hope it means it’s now canon that “Spider-Man” 3 will involve Peter somehow breaking up someone’s marriage. Juuust kidding. Finally, Zendaya came with a joke of her own emphasizing the power of friendship: Zendaya on Instagram All very amusing but yeah, this is also a very coordinated gag. Our guess is the real, actual, non-kidding official “Spider-Man 3” title is coming soon. Maybe when Holland appears on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” later tonight.Zendaya Meanwhile, Holland, Batalon and Zendaya also provided images from the still-untitled film. Nothing much happens in them but if you want to see how the three main characters are still the three main characters, have a look.

In the first look at the HBO documentary film “Tina,” Tina Turner recalls losing her mother when she was young, having watched her look out the window of their home until one day she wasn’t there and never came back. Turner explains how this memory shaped her and helped the music legend overcome hardship throughout her career. “I wanted her to come for me. I waited. She never did,” Turner says in the trailer. “And it’s all right. You know why? I’m a girl from a cotton field. I pulled myself above the destruction and the mistakes, and I’m here for you.” “Tina” comes from directors Dan Lindsay, T.J. Martin, who are the directors of the Oscar-winning “Undefeated,” and it will document Turner’s early rise to fame, her personal and professional struggles and her resurgence as a phenomenon in the 1980s. The documentary debuts on HBO on March 27. Also Read: Edgar Wright's 'The Sparks Brothers' Acquired by Focus Features “Tina” begins in the fall of 1981 when she sits down for an interview with Carl Arrington for People Magazine, five years after she had filed for divorce from Ike Turner and had already recorded hits like “A Fool in Love”, “River Deep – Mountain High” and “Proud Mary.” In that interview, she would reveal that her supposedly healthy marriage was full of abuse and torture she had suffered during her marriage and how she made her escape after years of trauma, and the article would be the first of many that would paint her as a survivor. The film then shows how she spent years performing in Vegas before finally hitting it big again with her album “Private Dancer” and her No. 1 single “What’s Love Got To Do With It.” “Tina” shows how Turner continued to privately wrestle with her own survivor narrative even as she performed with superstars and in front of record crowds. It concludes with Turner taking a bow at the opening night of the Broadway musical about her life. Others interviewed for the film include Angela Bassett, Oprah Winfrey, journalist Kurt Loder who co-authored “I, Tina,” playwright Katori Hall and husband and former record executive Erwin Bach, among many others.
