Kumail Nanjiani Eats Cake and Pizza for First Time Since Getting Ripped for Marvel’s ‘The Eternals’ (Video)
One visit to “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Thursday night was enough to convince Kumail Nanjiani to break his year-long ban on carbs and refined sugars.

The “Big Sick” star nearly broke the internet in December when he posted a photo of his extremely-ripped body to Instagram, shocking fans who were used to him looking like, well, a normal human being.

Nanjiani’s new body came courtesy of an extremely rigorous training regimen and strict diet to prepare for his upcoming role in Marvel Studio’s “The Eternals,” with the goal of adding 20 pounds of lean muscle to transform the 41-year-old comedian’s skinny physique into superhero mode.

Tom Hanks Reacts to ‘Jeopardy’ Contestants Not Recognizing Him as Mister Rogers: ‘You Are Kidding Me!’ (Video)
Jimmy Kimmel got Tom Hanks’ honest reaction to a viral clip from “Jeopardy!” last week in which none of the contestants could correctly identify him as Mister Rogers.

Hanks couldn’t believe it.

“You are kidding me! They didn’t even have any wrong suggestions? Bing! Woody Harrelson? No. Bing! Mahershala Ali? No, I’m sorry,” Hanks marveled to the ABC late-night host on Monday in astonishment. “What was the name of the category? Washed up career choices for $800? Bad casting for $1000, Alex?”

Emmy Predictions for Variety and Reality: It’s a Battle Between Trump Bashers, Reality Warriors and Rock Stars

Emmy Predictions for Variety and Reality: It’s a Battle Between Trump Bashers, Reality Warriors and Rock Stars
The Emmys’ variety and reality categories are in many ways the timeliest categories, and yet also the most unchanging. In the variety field, you’ll find late-night comedians like Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, John Oliver and Jimmy Kimmel, whose political humor is television’s most current and most barbed. Apart from perhaps MSNBC, this is the center of the anti-Trump resistance on TV.

But these are also categories in which Television Academy members find shows they like and continue to vote for them year after year, leading to long winning streaks for David Letterman, Jon Stewart, “The Kennedy Center Honors” and Jeff Probst in the past, and for Stephen Colbert, “The Amazing Race,” John Oliver and “The Voice” more recently.

Still, a few formidable newcomers are hoping to break in this year, from “Desus and Mero” to “Tosh.0” to “The Masked Singer” to Bruce Springsteen and Beyonce.
