Bruce Willis/Nathan Lane

Don't quite understand why whenever Bruce Willis goes on Letterman, he feels compelled to do prepared shtick throughout the interview. Mediocre shtick, I might add - like this lame turkey bit from Thanksgiving (and stick around for another groan-inducing bit of comedy at 9:00 - Bruce doing a "High School Musical" parody wearing a funny wig).

Whereas Nathan Lane is supposed to be funny, he too prefers prepared bits that tank on the show - and does his entire interview like it's some kind of desperate Mad TV pitch meeting: one flop joke after another to a mostly bemused audience.

Will Ferrell they ain't.
