They look so cute together!
It's been almost four decades since Betty White and Ed Asner have acted together on the small screen, but thankfully, the two are reuniting for an episode on Betty's hit show Hot in Cleveland.

To celebrate their 80th anniversary, the Hollywood Reporter has put some of the biggest names in showbiz on three separate covers.
On the first cover sits Halle Berry and Sidney Poitier, the first African American male and female to win an Oscar.
The other two were separated into east coast and west coast actors.
Representing Los Angeles is Ed Asner, Betty White, Larry Hagman, Eva Marie Saint, Mickey Rooney and Debbie Reynolds.
The New York crew features Anne Meara, Jerry Stiller, James Earl Jones, Gena Rowlands and Angela Lansbury.
We love this concept, especially since all but 4 of them are over the age of 80.

It’s no accident we didn’t put an exclamation point in this headline…we’re REALLY skeptical about this.
Elf opens at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on November 10. We're pretty sure we've got other plans that day.
Film-To-Broadway adaptations can be troublesome, and this is no exception. As we mentioned back in December, we’re struggling with mustering any kind of enthusiasm for this. What could they possibly do to make it NOT lame?
Well…here’s the one thing that is has going for it: George Wendt.
He played a lovable alcoholic on Cheers, he tackled the role of Edna in the recent Broadway adaptation of Hairspray, and now he’ll be taking over Ed Asner’s role as Santa Claus.
Guess we’ll see how this one plays out, but it just seems kind of pointless. What unnecessary Film-To-Broadway adaptation is next? Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time: The Musical?
What do U think would be the WORST Film-To-Broadway adaptation?
