Last Night on Late Night: Ewan McGregor Had No Clue About the Star Wars Spinoffs

Last night on Live, Jimmy Kimmel broke the Star Wars news to Ewan McGregor when he asked the former Obi-Wan Kenobi if he would be a part of either the Han Solo or Boba Fett spinoffs that "caused a disturbance in the force" yesterday. "Is there new news today? ... What was the news today? ... What was the new news?" Well, either George Lucas was planning on surprising McGregor with a role or he won't be in the films. As for the latter scenario, McGregor laughed in agreement, "I guess not." Plus: You might want to catch the latest episode of Downton Sixbey before you read on ... Lady Whoopi Goldberg and Jimmy Fallon rehashed their favorite poop factory jokes. On the Late Show, Amy Sedaris slipped in sarcasm so subtly that David Letterman kept having to do a mental double-take. And Rooney Mara prefers that you sing "Happy Birthday" to her parents, not her. After all, they're the ones who did all the work, right? Watch our compilation to see what you missed.
