Bill Hader has slammed Justin Bieber's turn as a host on SNL.
The former Saturday Night Live performer was unimpressed when the "Baby" hitmaker hosted an episode of the comedy sketch show because he arrived on set with a huge entourage. "Justin Bieber showed up with like 20 guys. He had a guy holding a slice of pizza. A guy holding a Diet Coke. You're trying to fight through all these people to get dressed," he told Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show.
While Bill hated working with Bieber, he praised Justin Timberlake for his down to earth attitude. Speaking about the "Mirrors" singer, he said, "He's great. Also, the guy doesn't show up with anybody. Timberlake, it was just him. He's a real class act, that guy."
Mel B says the new America's Got Talent judging panel is a "discombobulated" but "feisty" group.
The Spice Girls singer is to judge on the new season of the hit talent competition along with supermodel Heidi Klum and says the panel - which includes radio personality Howard Stern and comedian Howie Mandel - all have unique quirks that makes for an interesting dynamic on set.
"They're really nice actually. We all get on. We're a bit of a feisty panel. We all hang out afterwards; so far so good. [Howard] is completely inappropriate and out of everybody on the panel, I get along with him the most! Howard is a bit grumpy sometimes. Heidi Klum is very sweet; we're really good friends. Howie Mandel is a germaphobe - he rides around in his private jet, and then me and Heidi get to ride around in his private jet, too, but you still can't touch his hands! So between the four of us, it's a completely discombobulated group that somehow get on."

A mole told The Wrap that former panelist Christina - who left the show in 2012 after three seasons to promote her latest album LOTUS - is expected to return this autumn after signing a deal worth a rumored $17 million.
It is as yet unclear whether Cee Lo Green, who also departed last year, will be returning alongside Christina or whether his popular replacement, Usher, will stay on.
The current line-up of NBC's singing competition, which also features Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, has proved a hit with audiences and ratings are at an all-time high. Producer Matt Burnett confirmed Shakira's departure and explained change was a natural progress when working with successful recording artists: "Everybody can't coach for life because when you have people with current recording in the game, this is not their job. Their job is their fans and making music and being live, and so we knew from the beginning that this would happen, and we've had six coaches. They all have another life and their schedules."
The Office changed John Krasinski's life. The 33-year-old actor was a waiter before he landed the role of Jim Halpert on the NBC show and John - who is married to Emily Blunt - will always be grateful for what it did for him.
"To say this show gave me everything is the biggest understatement. I was a waiter before The Office so to me, this was a winning lottery ticket. Everything about my life has changed," he told Us Weekly.
John admits he is "emotional" about the end of the show, and while he doesn't want to say goodbye, is happy he and his cast mates have the opportunity to bring their storylines to a satisfactory conclusion: "I get so emotional to think that we're ending the show. But I'm unbelievably proud to be a part of one that actually gets to end. Instead of being asked to leave, I actually get a shot at bringing the whole story and all the characters to a close."
Kristen Wiig will return to Saturday Night Live as host.
The Bridesmaids actress - who spent seven seasons on the show before quitting last year - will host on May 11, with Vampire Weekend as musical guests. Kristen, hailed by showrunner Lorne Michaels as one of the top three or four cast members of all time, recently admitted she has felt lost since quitting SNL, explaining, "The show was seven years of my life and a six-day work week and you're constantly with your friends all day, all night. You sort of live and breathe the show. Then, when it's over, you kind of feel a little lost ... It was definitely an adjustment - even just the hours and [no longer] being in New York."
However, it is a busy for year Kristen, who stars in four movies this year, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Skeleton Twins, Imogene and Hateship, Friendship.
Meanwhile, Zach Galifianakis will host the May 4 SNL episode, while NBC has announced Ben Affleck will take charge for the season finale on May 18, with musical guest Kanye West.
Alec Baldwin is being lined up to front a late-night talk show.
The 30 Rock actor - who is currently starring in a stage production of Orphans on New York's Broadway - is said to have had "conversations" with NBC about taking over the slot currently occupied by Carson Daly's Last Call after impressing network chiefs with his podcast series.
"People have been impressed with his radio podcast series and have thought about him for these opportunities," a source said.
Alec's podcast series with WNYC radio, called Here's The Thing, has seen him interview stars including David Letterman, Billy Joel, Kristen Wiig and Chris Rock away from the studio into locations such as his guest's apartment. If the proposed 30-minute TV show followed the same format, it would mean the 55-year-old actor could record several installments in one day, leaving his schedule open for his other commitments, the New York Daily News reports.
"I figured the character would go back and visit everybody, but he wouldn't do it on camera at this point. I think he had grown past the idea of being in the documentary, that was my take on it... I just thought, yeah, he'd go back and visit, but he wouldn't want the camera crew to be documenting it."

Justin Timberlake hit back at Kanye West on Saturday Night Live.
The "Suit & Tie" singer - whose song with Jay-Z was slammed by the "All of the Lights" rapper in an expletive-laden diatribe last month - dismissed Kanye's insults while performing the song on the comedy sketch show last night and implied he is just jealous. The 32-year-old singer changed the lyrics of the song from "Aww, s**t so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit" to "my hit's so sick got rappers acting dramatic."
