“[Your kids] have to be psyched, ’cause Daddy’s going to be Batman now.”

Bravo, Jimmy Fallon. Last night, the TV host steered his adorable conversation with Ben Affleck about their children directly into the issue that you were most eager to hear. Affleck, who was on the show to promote his new movie, Runner Runner, hardly blinked and gleefully launched into the story of how he came to get the job of Batman in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman movie for director Zack Snyder.

Affleck took the most delight in recalling the internet reaction to his casting — a reaction the studio apparently prepared him for. “I’m a big boy,” he said he told the studio after they suggested he not use the internet for a few days. “I handle sh-t. … I’m very tough. So I saw the announcement and I look on [the internet]. I look on the first comment. It’s like “Ben Affleck is going to be Batman.” The first one just goes, “Nooooooooooooooooo!”

Jimmy Fallon says he will not host the Oscars

Johnny Carson. Jon Stewart. Jimmy Fallon? Not so fast: The host of NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon has revealed that despite reports to the contrary, he will not be hosting 2013′s Academy Awards ceremony.

“No, I’m not going to do the Oscars,” he told Matt Lauer in London this afternoon. “It’s an honor to be asked by the Academy, but it’s not my year.”

Rumors about Fallon hosting the Oscars began swirling last week, when recently departed MPAA president Tom Sherak initiated talks with the late night host and Saturday Night Live executive producer Lorne Michaels. But Fallon’s admission shouldn’t come as much of a surprise; as the LA Times noted, ABC would be unlikely to welcome the former SNL star, since Late Night competes with the network’s own Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Watch Fallon shoot down the Oscar rumors below.

'Wet Hot American Summer' 10th anniversary: David Wain, Michael Showalter, and Joe Lo Truglio remember their days at Camp Firewood

Think it’s impossible to make a comedy for just $1.8 million, get it into theatres, and still wind up with a financial disaster? Think again!!! It is almost exactly 10 years since writer-director David Wain did just that with Wet Hot American Summer, his camp movie spoof which starred co-writer Michael Showalter, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Christopher Meloni, and Joe Lo Truglio, amongst many others.

To mark the 10th anniversary of the movie’s release — and to celebrate the film’s elevation to cult classic status — Wain, Showalter, and Black are hosting a special Wet Hot event tonight at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, N.Y. The bad news? The event is sold out. The good? You can read the Camp Firewood reminiscences of Wain, Showalter, and Lo Truglio below.

Why I can't stop being annoyed by Conan O'Brien

A late-night talk-show host occupies many roles at once. He is stand-up comic, he is party host, he is interviewer, he is sketch-comedy utility man, he is national spokesman/judge, he is tie-and-jacketed DIY surrealist. But it wasn’t until Conan O’Brien fought his doomed war against the suits at NBC that a late-night talk-show host came to occupy the following role: the Rebel You Have to Like. For a while (and this was the culmination of Conan’s cult of cooler-than-thou TV-zombie-head cachet), it simply wouldn’t do to think, or say, that Conan O’Brien was anything but the bee’s knees. Or to think, or say, that he’d lost the Tonight Show gig for any other reason than that he’d gone up against The Man — who hadn’t given him enough time! Those ratings were going to shoot up, they really were! — and that The Man had screwed him over. It simply wasn’t welcome on the buzz spectrum to say that maybe you didn’t like Conan O’Brien, or to say that his not working out as the Tonight Show host — a situation that was undeniably poorly handled by the network — had more than a little to do with the nature of his talent, which is to italicize and absurdify every joke to within an inch of its life.
