Hugh Jackman returns to the Tonys, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Hugh Jackman couldn't quit the Tony Awards if he wanted to. While most hosts want to disassociate themselves from a program around the third time, Jackman has just signed up for his fourth round with the Tonys.
  • We don't know if Scarlett Johansson's upcoming movie "Under Her Skin" makes her more tantalizing, or simply terrifying. The actress plays an alien who takes on the form of a dead woman and then uses her looks to prey on the men of Scotland. Check out the trailer for the April 11 release:
  • If Liam Hemsworth's chumminess with "The Vampire Diaries" star Nina Dobrev is any indication, he's moved on from Miley Cyrus. [NYDN]
  • Jennifer Lawrence, according to the dudes over at AskMen.com, is so 2013. The most desirable woman this year is "Game of Thrones" actress Emilia Clarke. [AskMen.com]
  • There's nothing like getting your twerk on while mom is watching, and Khloe Kardashian should know. Kris Jenner was in the club cheering her daughter on as she indulged in a little dirty dancing with rapper The Game. [TMZ]

'SNL' reunion on Seth Meyers' 'Late Night'

For everyone who's missed seeing Fred Armisen on late night TV, Seth Meyers is about to be your savior.

The "SNL" alum is bringing his former co-worker along to "Late Night" when he begins hosting the show on February 24.

Meyers announced on Monday that Armisen is going to curate and lead the live band, even when he's off working on IFC's "Portlandia."

As New York Magazine's Vulture and MTV have pointed out, a lot of Armisen's comedy has musical roots, like the Blue Jean Committee and The Bjelland Brothers.

As he prepares to take over "Late Night" from Jimmy Fallon, Meyers is surrounding himself with plenty of old friends. His first guest on "Late Night" will be another "SNL" graduate, Amy Poehler.

Kanye, post-'College Dropout': I'm the same guy

In the 10 years since Kanye West released his debut album "College Dropout," a lot has changed for the man.

He's gone from an unknown to a global phenomenon; from a game-changing rap artist to an ambitious pop-culture creator who refuses to limit his palette; and from a mainly harmless trendsetting upstart to one of pop culture's most vilified figures. And that's aside from the peaks and valleys in his personal life, from his familial loss to his familial gain with Kim Kardashian and daughter North.

But to West, now 36, he's still the same guy.
