Talk-show tango June 22-26: Gimme Megan Fox over Bruno any day

In late night, talk show, television, tv on 06/21/2009 at 4:59 pm

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has the talk-show circuit in its thrall this week. Or, rather, Megan Fox does. Hey, who’s going to complain. The girl is cute. At least it’s a bit of relief from the neverending promotional tour that is Sacha Baron Cohen’s Bruno. Will someone please open that movie and get it over with so we can all get on with our summers? Ridiculously, the Bruno tour (which touches down on O’Brien’s show on Thursday) does not peak until the movie opens in the U.S. on July 10. Here’s the trailer for Transformers. It opens midnight on Tuesday here in Montreal.
