Just Like in Fan Fiction, Dustin Hoffman Kissed a One Direction Guy Last Night

MTanzer · 12/08/12 09:47AM

Five members of a tiny twink army, known to most as One Direction, were on The Late Show With David Letterman last night. They were pretty humble, albeit kind of boring, during their sit down with Dave. But the show's most exciting moment was their entrance when fellow guest Dustin Hoffman accompanied them to the stage. Left with nowhere to sit, Hoffman sat on the lap of 1D's Niall Horan.

Dustin Hoffman Feigns Interest In 'The New Yorker,' But Reaching For The Latest 'OK!'

Douglas Reinhardt · 10/16/08 12:41PM

Click to viewBoomp3.com Living legend Dustin Hoffman stopped off at a Brentwood magazine kiosk looking to pick up his weekly fix of the celebrity gossip rags. However a crowd quickly developed once the I Heart Huckabees star arrived, forcing Hoffman to feign interest in more serious fare like the Economist and The New Yorker. The crowd eventually went away, allowing the Hoffeweizen to scoop his favorite mags. Walking away, Hoffman was overheard to have said, “Oh, I’m so glad to see Zac and Vanessa are so in love together.” [Photo Credit: X17] *A Call To The Bullpen is a work of fiction.

Dustin Hoffman Thinks This Dog Sounds A Bit Pitchy

Douglas Reinhardt · 10/02/08 12:05PM

Click to viewBoomp3.com At the AFI Night At The Movies event held at the Arclight, beloved Hollywood icon Dustin Hoffman broke into a rather pitchy rendition of “Hound Dog” with Bullseye, the Target mascot. Hoffman and Bullseye fielded some requests from the crowd, but due to Bullseye’s limited vocal range, they were forced to perform “Hound Dog” one more time. After the encore, Hoffman hoped that Bullseye expand his song category in the future. Hoffman said, “I would love to do some old standards one night with old Bully. A night of Cole Porter? Bully is good, but he has a long ways to go." [Photo Credit: Getty Images] *A Call To The Bullpen is a work of fiction.

Google's Hollywood pals try to bore the young into voting

Jackson West · 10/02/08 09:20AM

Because Google cares about the children, it has asked a bunch of Hollywood celebrities to create a public service announcement urging young folks to vote — for Barack Obama, against California's Proposition 8, and for San Francisco's Proposition K. Kidding! We just tried to slip the decriminalization of prostitution in there in the hopes you'll be confused and think your Googley overlords publicly endorsed it (but lord would it ever piss of the evangelicals, bless their little hearts). No, it's all very superficially bipartisan. It's also four and a half minutes long, two minutes of which attempt lame reverse psychology and the rest bad to middling attempts at humor, finishing with Dustin Hoffman creepily flirting with some young production assistant. So far? 172,325 views. But hey, that'd be enough votes for Prop K to win!
