I'm watching. You're watching. Let's talk.

Talk-show tango Dec. 13-17: Jeff Bridges, Paul Rudd, Diddy

In television on 12/13/2010 at 8:26 am

Jeff Bridges can sleep next year because for the rest of this year, he’s busy promoting both Coen brothers’ remake of True Grit and the return to the beloved geek odyssey in Tron: Legacy. Also everywhere this week: Diddy, plus Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson and Reese Witherspoon promoting How Do You Know (and I think you do without even seeing the trailer, not that there’s anything wrong with a predictable familiar romantic comedy).
