    daniel radcliffe tonight show

    • Daniel Radcliffe appeared on NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Wednesday and shared his thoughts on popular "Harry Potter" memes.
    • The actor went on to say that even though fans of the franchise probably thought he was cool when he starred in the hit movies, he didn't view himself in that way. 
    • "What's cool about that stuff is that I never — as a kid and you're just insecure at that age — I never felt cool at any point playing that character."

     

    Daniel Radcliffe is known for his popular role as Harry Potter in the film franchise, but he admits that he didn't think he was as cool as fans perceived him at the time.

    During an appearance on NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," the 29-year-old reacted to some well-known "Harry Potter" memes.

    This included one photo of a pug dressed as his character with the caption "Hairy Pugger" and another that put a Harry Potter spin on Jay-Z's "99 Problems."

    "If you're havin' Qudditch problems, I feel bad for you, son. I got 99 problems but a Snitch ain't one,'" the meme read. 

    The hilarious photo prompted Radcliffe to comment on his time playing the wizard. 

    "What's cool about that stuff is that I never — as a kid and you're just insecure at that age — I never felt cool at any point playing that character."

    He added that the memes made him realize that people probably viewed him as cool at the peak of his fame. 

    Radcliffe played the Boy Who Lived from 2001 to 2011, beginning with "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" and concluding with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2."

    Previously, the actor explained that he found out he got the role while he was taking a bath

    In an interview with the Daily Mail, he acknowledged that the franchise paved the way for other opportunities — but revealed that he wasn't a fan of some of his acting in the "Harry Potter" films. 

     Particularly in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," Radcliffe said it was "hard to watch" because he's "just not very good in it."

    "My acting is very one-note and I can see I got complacent and what I was trying to do just didn't come across," he said. "My best film is the fifth one ["Order of the Phoenix"] because I can see a progression."

    After the final "Harry Potter" movie, Radcliffe went on to star in a variety of different films, from dramas like "Kill Your Darlings" and "Victor Frankenstein" to comedies like "What If." He also played the lead role in theater productions, and is currently gearing up for his role in the Broadway show "The Lifespan of a Fact," which officially opens on Thursday, October 18 at Studio 54.

    miss hawaii miss america 2.0

    • Miss America 2.0 made some changes to this year's competition, including the removal of the swimsuit competition.
    • Miss Hawaii, Penelope Ng Pack, told INSIDER she would like to see more change in the future.
    • Ng Pack says she'd like to see a revamped lifestyle and fitness portion added and more than just the Top 15 women highlighted on TV.

    The new Miss America 2.0 rid of the swimsuit portion of its competition this year, but Miss Hawaii wants to see even more change in the future. 

    "As a Hawaii girl who loved the swimsuit phase of competition but understands the need for change, I’d like to see a revamped lifestyle and fitness portion included where we can confidently model athleisure-wear and share about what we do to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle," Penelope Ng Pack told INSIDER in an email. "Or even show some moves from our favorite workout — mine is Tahitian zumba."

    The swimsuit portion was replaced by a peer-to-peer interview portion in which those in the top 15 asked their peers questions. It was one of a number of changes made to this year's Miss America competition.

    That's not the only change Miss Hawaii hopes to see in the future. 

    "I also think we should have more than a Top 15 so America can get to meet more of their incredible future leaders and catalysts for change," continued Ng Pack. "Or perhaps candidates who didn’t make the Top 15 could interview our peers."

    Ng Pack emphasized the diversity of this year's "Top 15" candidates — the show no longer refers to them as contestants — not only in backgrounds, but also in talents. Both Miss Nebraska and Miss Colorado performed monologues during the talent portion of Miss America 2.0. 

    Miss Hawaii tells INSIDER she was happy with the changes made to the revamped "Miss America" competition this year. (She was also happy to be in the company of fellow Hawaiian, host Carrie Ann Inaba.) But Ng Pack also hoped the two-hour broadcast would take a longer look at some of the other women. 

    "I only wish we had more time on the telecast to highlight the talents and voices of more than 15 of the top 51 young women in America," said Ng Pack. 

    The show spent about its first 10 minutes introducing all of the women quickly by having them state their name, area of study, and school before dwindling the group down from 51 to 15. Miss Michigan, Emily Sioma, took the opportunity to use her brief time on stage to highlight the Flint water crisis in her state.

    Ng Pack may not have made the Top 15 Sunday night, but she did take home a $1,000 scholarship and another $5,000 scholarship as a Women in Business award recipient. 

    Miss New York, Nia Imani Franklin, was crowned 2019's Miss America. You can read more about her here.

    Jessica SimpsonSome celebrity couples have aired their relationships on reality TV— and viewers tuned in for a good reason. They got to watch the good, the bad and the glamorous unfold for some of their favorite celebrity couples.

    Here are 10 celebrity couples who gave viewers a peek into their lives on reality TV — and even some that are still on the air.

    Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey seemed like the perfect reality TV couple.

    The two embarked on a reality TV journey with their series, "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica," which showcased what it like for two young pop stars to marry each other.

    Before their eventual split, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey were America's sweetheart couple. Show producer, Sue Kolinsky, alluded to the fact that they were the perfect reality TV show couple. "[Nick & Jessica] were perfect because they were polar opposites, they were beautiful, and without even realizing it, they were very funny," she told Complex. 

    The show lasted for two years, and three seasons from 2003-2005. But, Jessica's infamous chicken or fish confusion will forever be remembered forever. 



    Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom aired their relationship on TV.

    A whirlwind love turned into a short-lived reality TV show for the now-divorced couple of Khloé Kardashian and retired NBA player, Lamar Odom. The show aired shortly after the couples' wedding special in 2011. 

    Although "Khloé & Lamar" only lasted for two seasons, it showed a seemingly genuine side of Kardashian and Odom. 



    Jessie James Decker and Eric Decker are a no-drama couple on their show.

    The country-pop songstress and newly-retired NFL player introduced us to their lives on reality TV with "Eric & Jessie: Game On" in 2013. On the show, the couple shared their journeys in wedding planning, parenting, and working.

    Unlike many reality TV shows, the series lacked drama. The Cut even described it as a show "about two hot people loving each other unconditionally ... with no drama." 

    The show currently has three seasons and has yet to be renewed for a fourth.

    stephen hawking the big bang theory

    "The Big Bang Theory" is coming to an end after its 12th season. 

    Since 2007, Leonard, Sheldon, Penny, Raj, and Howard have had their fair share of run-ins with celebrities. Howard rubbed shoulders with Buzz Aldrin when he went to space, James Earl Jones pranked Carrie Fisher, and Adam West was invited to Sheldon's birthday party. Stars ranging from Bob Newhart to the late Stephen Hawking have even become recurring characters on the CBS comedy.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye will once again join the show to kick off its 12th season on September 24. Before the star-studded final season premieres, take a look back at the many stars who have appeared on the show. 

    "Roseanne" actress and "The Talk" co-host Sara Gilbert appeared on the show for several seasons as an experimental physicist.

    Before Johnny Galecki reprised his role on the "Roseanne" reboot, his old co-star Sara Gilbert appeared on "The Big Bang Theory" until season three as Leonard's ex and colleague, Dr. Leslie Winkle. 

    Winkle returned for the show's 200th episode on season nine to attend Sheldon's birthday party.



    She's not the only "Roseanne" star who has made an appearance. Laurie Metcalf has played Sheldon's mom.

    Metcalf has appeared on a handful of episodes as Mary Cooper since season one. We expect to see her again to close out the show. 



    Charlie Sheen played himself on an episode of season two.

    Sheen appeared on "The Big Bang Theory" while his CBS show, "Two and a Half Men," was on TV. Raj tells Sheen at a bar that he's going to be in People magazine. 

    You can watch a snippet of the scene here.

    how i met your motherOver its nine seasons,"How I Met Your Mother" became a fan favorite, with people quoting lines even still today — four years after the finale.

    With over 200 episodes since its 2005 premiere, a lot happened on the show. But even if you watched every episode (and re-watched once it hit the streaming sites) you probably didn't know these legend… wait for it… dary things about "How I Met Your Mother."

    1. Narrator Ted Mosby is played by Bob Saget.

    Instead of having Josh Radnor play Ted and do the future timeline voice-overs, Saget was cast to play older Ted.



    2. It's not actually filmed in New York.

    New York City may be a central character in the series, but the series filmed on a studio lot in Los Angeles that was designed to look like the Big Apple, per the New York Post.



    3. Jim Parsons was almost Barney.

    Before Neil Patrick Harris landed the role, Parsons auditioned for the show. But there are no hard feelings for "The Big Bang Theory" star now. "Look, it all worked out fine … Neil's better for the part, let's be honest," Parsons said on "Live with Kelly," according to Yahoo.

    modern family

    • A "significant" character will die on "Modern Family" next season.
    • Co-creator Christopher Lloyd confirmed as much to Entertainment Weekly.
    • The ABC comedy starring Ed O'Neill, Sofia Vergara, and Sarah Hyland will debut its 10th season on September 26.

    The "Modern Family" cast has endured for almost 10 seasons, but the end is near for one character.

    Co-creator Christopher Lloyd told Entertainment Weekly that a “significant” character will die in the upcoming 10th season of the family comedy, which is set to premiere Sept. 26 on ABC.

    “We’re handling some bigger life events in this season,” he told the magazine. “We do deal with a death, which is certainly a topic that families have to deal with, and on television, it’s not easy to do because that’s a heavy subject. But at the same time, it would seem unusual for a family not to go through it.”

    Lloyd would not reveal who the character is, but he did say that the death would impact several episodes. The 10th season also marks the end of the show’s multi-season contract, so future seasons remain uncertain. Co-creator Steven Levitan has previously talked about ending the show, but Lloyd expressed a different sentiment.

    "There’s goodwill on both sides to make it happen, but there’s also complicated matters that have to get worked through, and there’s a time constraint on it, because we can’t have it take too long," he said. "I’m hoping that that doesn’t make the whole thing go away, but I think there’s a decent chance we’ll see it happen."

    TITANS ROBIN

    • DC Comics has released its new streaming service, DC Universe.
    • The subscription service costs $7.99 per month or $74.99 annually, and will feature original live action and animated series from the world of DC Comics, along with digital comics and classic TV series and films.

     

    DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. new streaming service, DC Universe, is now live to the public. 

    The subscription service costs $7.99 per month or $74.99 annually, and will feature original live action and animated series from the world of DC Comics. 

    The service's first live-action original series, "Titans," will premiere October 12, with each of its 12 episodes released weekly.

    Currently, the service features access to classic TV series and films, a curated selection of digital comic books, a DC-centric encyclopedia, and exclusive merchandise, per a release from Warner Bros. 

    "DC Universe is not an attempt to be everything to everyone," Jim Lee, CCO of DC Entertainment and a veteran comic book artist, told Business Insider's Travis Clark last month. "It's an attempt to be the most immersive experience for fans of the DC characters and stories."

    "We've always been very cognizant that fans want to find our material in a way that's most convenient and find it in the most easily accessible way," Lee continued. "It's always sort of a mandate to look at technology and trends and figure out the best way to deliver content."

    Warner Bros. digital networks president Craig Hunegs said in a release on Friday that the service "stands out as a fan-first service in what is quickly becoming a crowded marketplace of consumer choices."

    Following "Titans," the service said it will release a number of original series including "Young Justice: Outsiders,""Doom Patrol,""Swamp Thing,""Harley Quinn" and "Stargirl."

    game of thrones

    While some Emmy darlings are expected and obvious, you might be surprised that some of your favorite shows of all time don't have as many Emmys as you think think — or any at all.

    "Friends" only won six Emmys during its run and "Seinfeld" only won ten. How about HBO's critically-acclaimed series "The Wire?" Zero wins, two nominations. 

    But some audience and critic favorites do make the list for the most Emmy wins ever. "Game of Thrones" is incredibly close to breaking "SNL's" record. "Breaking Bad,""Mad Men," and "Frasier" were also consistent favorites during awards season, and it shows in their double-digit wins and for some, three-digit nominations. 

    The 70th annual Emmy Awards begin at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Monday night, and will air live coast-to-coast on NBC. 

    Here are the 19 shows with the most Emmy wins:

    SEE ALSO: Here are all the 2017 Emmy nominees — Netflix, HBO, and 'SNL' lead the way

    "Breaking Bad"— 16 wins and 58 nominations

    "Breaking Bad" won outstanding drama series twice for the fifth and final season, since it was split in two. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul won three Emmys for their roles. 



    "30 Rock"— 16 wins and 103 nominations

    "30 Rock" was once an Emmys darling. Its first season got ten Emmy nominations, and it got 17 in its second season. The show won outstanding comedy series three years in a row. 



    "Mad Men"— 16 wins and 116 nominations

    Jon Hamm had a lot of competition in the lead actor in a drama category, so after seven nominations, he didn't get his first win until his final shot in 2015. In its first four seasons, "Mad Men" won outstanding drama. The show also won several awards for writing, directing, and hairstyling.

    i wanna marry harry

    Because there are just so many TV shows, there's also no shortage of TV shows that have gotten some serious flack, specifically reality TV.

    The 21st century's habits of pitting disagreeable people against each other, turning the camera on the loudest characters, and creating situations for single people to find love and acceptance create conflict that's sometimes fun to watch and sometimes just unbearable for some people.

    Not all reality TV is inherently bad, but here are some of the reality TV show concepts that would never fly in 2018.

    "The Swan" never should have existed.

    In 2004, Fox premiered "The Swan" where eight women were given extreme makeovers in order to go from "ugly ducklings" to "swans." This included the use of coaches, personal trainers, and cosmetic surgeons for a head-to-toe plastic surgery makeover.

    The end pageant featured an evening gown contest, a swimsuit contest, and a redundant lingerie competition. The winner would be given a modeling contract. Despite extreme backlash, the "most sadistic reality series of the decade" garnered a second season.

    Former contestants suffered from divorces, surgery problems, and serious mental health issues.



    "Boy Meets Boy" featured a cruel and homophobic twist.

    The 2003 Bravo show was a same-sex dating style series like "The Bachelor," but a twist near the end revealed that half of the contestants were just pretending to be gay.

    If Bachelor James Getzlaff's final pick turned out to be straight, the straight contestant would win $25,000. But many people were concerned that the show would exploit and even put gay men in danger. 

    "If what they want to do is make a documentary or explore social issues, they should do that," Derek Hartley, relationship writer at PlanetOut.com's "Fantasy Island" told the Advocate at the time."What makes reality shows work is the delight in seeing people devolve to horrendous behavior toward one another. That's what we're watching for."



    "I Wanna Marry 'Harry'" didn't work then and definitely wouldn't work now.

    Unknowing suitors competed for the heart of Prince Harry who was played by Prince Harry look-a-like, Matthew Hicks. It was canceled after just four episodes.

    Although the women competed as if they were vying for the heart of the prince, the resemblance was flawed. NPR writer Linda Holmes pointed out that the show basically hung on the assumption that whatever woman won would be tricked and would be seen as a "gold digger."

    "The fantasy is comeuppance for vain, beautiful, terrible, greedy women," she wrote. "Oh, sure, Matt may wind up picking one of them and confessing he's not a royal, and she may say, 'Oh, that's okay!' and leap into his arms," Holmes wrote. "But the real fantasy here lies in week after week watching as woman after woman reveals herself to be a grubbing, grasping, infantile harpy for wanting what the show is dangling in front of her, as well as a moron for believing it's the truth."

    Today, if they wanted to repeat the format, they'd have to choose a different celeb, since the eponymous one is taken.

    • Anna Kendrick appeared on CBS' "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" on Friday.
    • During her interview, she shared the story behind what caused then-President Barack Obama to double over with laughter when they met in 2012.
    • Kendrick explained that she "called him an a------ and scolded him for not knowing enough about the 50 states."

     

    In 2012, Anna Kendrick met then-President Barack Obama and said something so hilarious that he doubled over with laughter. Now, the "Simple Favor" actress is explaining what caused that reaction.

    Kendrick appeared on CBS' "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" on Friday and recalled meeting Obama six years ago. In the photos, which she shared on Instagram, the "Pitch Perfect" actress was seen greeting Obama. One image in particular, which showed the 57-year-old "doubled over with laughter," caught the attention of fans.

    Last year. The coolest three seconds of my life. (What can I say? I'm hilarious) #FlashBackFriday

    A post shared by Anna Kendrick (@annakendrick47) on Jan 18, 2013 at 10:03am PST on

    "I called him an a------ and scolded him for not knowing enough about the 50 states," Kendrick told Stephen Colbert.

    The 33-year-old went into detail, explaining that she was "very excited to have the opportunity to go to an event and meet him [Obama]." 

    When Kendrick arrived at the Los Angeles event, she was the first person in attendance and found herself chatting with a Secret Service agent. Once Obama entered the room, he started discussing economics with Kendrick and a group of approximately 30 people — and singled her out. 

    Kendrick said that Obama referenced her role in "Up in the Air," which is one of his "favorite movies" that discussed the economy and the recession. 

    The actress went on to say that after they shook hands, Obama told Kendrick that he hoped he didn't embarrass her earlier while addressing the group. 

    "Yeah, you're such an a------," she told him. 

    The Oscar-nominated actress said that he laughed off her comment and asked if she is also from Maine, which she confirmed. Kendrick also pointed out that she was the first person to arrive. 

    According to the actress, he asked if people from Maine are typically punctual and she responded: "You didn't know that? You're the president."

    Kendrick's remark caused Obama to burst into laughter and the actress added that she saw him again in December 2013 when she performed "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" at the Kennedy Center Honors.

    Watch the video below (Kendrick talks about meeting Obama at 2:48).

    The stars of "Riverdale" never pass up an opportunity to troll each other. 

    On Friday, Casey Cott (known for his role as Kevin Keller on the hit CW show) posted a photo of co-star KJ Apa (who plays Archie Andrews) on Instagram. In the image, Apa was seated on a chair and facing a mirror as Cott took the photo with his phone. The latter captioned the snap: "Both the birthday and my gift. My little muse, have a good day my love."

    Both the birthday and my gift. My little muse, have a good day my love.

    The post was met with praise, laughter, and heart emojis from Apa, Sprouse, and several other co-stars. Fans of the series also noticed that the image closely resembled a shirtless photo of Lili Reinhart, which was shared by Cole Sprouse in honor of her 22nd birthday.

    The two actors, who play on-screen couple Jughead and Betty, have kept their real-life relationship under wraps for the most part since speculation started in 2017. In addition to sharing more photos of each other lately, the couple also made fun of fan reactions to their relationship

    The Crown

    The Emmys air Monday night, and after watching you'll probably want to catch up on some of the most highly regarded shows on television that were honored this year. And we're here to make that easier for you. 

    We know what it's like to spend more time figuring out what to watch than actually watching something, so every week we gather a list of three great shows you should binge on Netflix. Here, you'll find shows you can finish quickly, and some you can just get started on.

    This week, we selected three TV shows available to watch on Netflix that were nominated for Emmys. 

    The 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by "SNL's" Colin Jost and Michael Che, will air live on Monday, September 17 on NBC at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

    From British royal drama "The Crown" to the brilliant afterlife comedy "The Good Place," here are some great Emmy-nominated TV shows you can binge on Netflix this week.

    "American Vandal"

    2018 Emmy nomination: Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or a Dramatic Special

    Seasons: 2

    Episodes: 16

    "American Vandal" is just as addictive as the true crimes docs it's satirizing. It's also just as funny as it is poignant, and deserved more major Emmy nominations than it got. It's one of the absolute best shows on TV right now, with clever writing that is a comment on so many aspects of our culture — from the way we use social media to corrupt, classist high schools, to how we consume. Each episode is about 30 minutes, so it's an easy show to binge. 



    "The Good Place"

    2018 Emmy nominations: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Ted Danson), Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series (Maya Rudolph)

    Seasons: 2

    Episodes: 26

    "The Good Place" is the most ambitious show on TV right now. In season two, which recently became available on Netflix, the writers delivered more and more unexpected narrative and character twists, and broadened its fictional world without confusing fans or making them exhausted from many dramatic eye-rolls (sorry "Westworld"). Its season-two finale teased a completely different format for the series that promises an even bigger, better, and more gutsy third season premiering September 27. The performances, particularly from Ted Danson and the supporting cast, make it even more special.



    "The Crown"

    2018 Emmy nominations: Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Claire Foy), Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Vanessa Kirby),
    Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Matt Smith), Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series (Matthew Goode), Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series, Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, Outstanding Special Visual Effects in a Supporting Role

    Already won (at the Creative Arts Emmys): Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series, Outstanding Period Costumes

    Seasons: 2

    Episodes: 20

    "The Crown" is somehow slightly boring but incredibly gripping a the same time. Even if you're a history buff and know exactly what will happen to these characters, "The Crown" is impeccably made and the astounding performances make it so special. It's a great, calming show to have on while you're doing things around your house, especially if you've already seen it.
