Though, we DID notice he knocked back the beers during his stand-up routines… we just though maybe that was his on-stage thing! Either way, it's inneresting to hear that one of the main characters from The Hangover franchise as stopped drinking the devil's nectar, seeing as that's pretty much what those movies are all about (before the hard drugs, anyway!)! LOLz!
Apparently he quit drinking after a tipsy late-night incident in Manhattan — and told Conan the whooooole story!
You gotta watch (above)!
If it was becoming a problem, Zach, we're definitely glad you were able to kick the habit! It's MUCH healthier!
Now THIS is how you celebrate your 80th birthday!!
Willie Nelson is both a music and a pot legend around the globe, and he's notorious for his laid back attitude and amazing sense of humor. So when Conan O'Brien asked him to audition for the upcoming Hobbit sequel, there was no way he wasn't going to!
AND WE HAVE THE AUDITION TAPE (above)!
Of course, he's trying for the role of Gandalf, which is perfect, because Willie also thinks Balrogs are a**holes! LOLz!
Ian McKellen (Gandalf himself) doesn't agree, though, with the possible casting — but it's only because Willie is too young for the role! Here's what he said:
Dear Willie, You are far too young to play Gandy.But nice try; have a stoner of a birthday. Love and admiration. Ian
Check out the flawless audition! (This is fake, in case you were flabbergasted as to why Willie didn't get the role.)
For a man that doesn't really take anything seriously, Conan O'Brien sure does take cycling seriously!!
We mean, just look at him: he's got the determination, the helmet, and the entire body suit!
THAT'S what we call dedication to a physical activity!
We suppose that not everything can be fun and games all the time — so maybe this is just his "serious" outlet. You know, where gets all the seriousness out of him for a little bit each day so he can spend the rest on the top of his comedy game! LOLz!
Either way, we're glad to see him out staying active!
