Joel McHale on Working With His ‘Hero’ Robin Williams in “A Merry Friggin’ Christmas”

Joel McHale on Working With His ‘Hero’ Robin Williams in “A Merry Friggin’ Christmas”

Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) -- A Merry Friggin' Christmas opens in theaters this weekend, starring Joel McHale and the late Robin Williams, where the icon shows off a darker comedic side as McHale's crusty, anti-holiday father.McHale, 42, said working with the Oscar winner was "the experience of a lifetime.""If someone said to me, 'You're going to be in a Robin Williams movie and are going to be playing his son,' I'd say, 'I must have won some sort of lottery,'" McHale told ABC News. "It was something I always dreamed of and when I got to do it, it couldn't have been a better experience. He was so amazing and so giving and kind and cool. He's everything you want in meeting one of your heroes."Williams died in August at the age of 63, followed by an intense mourning from the comedy world and fans alike."When I found out he died, I couldn't believe it. It was like someone had shot me in the heart," McHale added. "I think the way the world loved him was pretty rare. I went to his funeral and it was one of the sadder things I've been to in a long time. I will miss him terribly. He was one of those guys, if he weren't even an actor, I'd be like, 'I love that guy!'"The movie is a who's who of the comedy and sitcom world, including Lauren Graham, Jeffrey Tambor and Candice Bergen. McHale said he would have loved to have had the chance to tour and promote the movie with the late icon."I'm really happy with the cut of the film; I hope he would be too," the Community star added.

McHale spoke to ABC when he hosted Canon's PIXMA PRO City Senses VIP gallery in his hometown of Seattle back in October. His gallery theme was football, which is timely, because his hometown team just won the Super Bowl last year."It all comes together perfectly. I like Seattle, I like football and it's football season," McHale said. "It was a harmonic convergence of things."The comedian added that the high-quality Canon printer used to make the photos for the gallery made him feel that much better as a photographer. Whether this new experience has lead the multitalented actor to try his hand at directing and stepping behind the camera, he's not sure."I don't know if I would be good at directing. I feel like I tell people all the time to do stuff," he joked. "So, in that sense, I'm a director, especially with my 9-year-old and my 6-year-old.” McHale said photography is something that he uses in everyday life, "documenting the lives" of his sons Edward and Isaac.

Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) -- Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom's marriage crumbled last year in the wake of erratic behavior on the part of the former NBA player.On Thursday, the day Odom turned 35, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star posted a cryptic poem, entitled "Closure," on Instagram that seemed to flick at their impending divorce."Like time suspended, a wound unmended - you and I," it read. "We had no ending, no said good-bye. For all my life, I'll wonder why."

Kardashian, 30, filed for divorce last December after four years of marriage. This past June, she said on an episode of her family's E! reality TV show that he had been cheating on her and went incommunicado for months at a time."He doesn't think we are going through with the divorce," she said at the time. "I'll always be his wife and he'll never call me anything else. Whatever, now he's finally admitting he's done f---ed up s---."A rep for Kardashian has not yet responded to a request for comment.

WATCH: Meteorologist Ginger Zee Skydives on “GMA”

WATCH: Meteorologist Ginger Zee Skydives on “GMA”

ABC News(HOMESTEAD, Fla.) -- GoPro cameras have changed the way people document their lives, and on Friday, Good Morning America's Ginger Zee strapped one on to go skydiving, allowing the show's viewers to see the adventure from her point of view as it happened.Zee jumped out of a plane at nearly 13,000 feet over Homestead, Florida. Fittingly, Zee, ABC News’ chief meteorologist, had perfect weather for her skydive."This is amazing," Zee said from the air. "I can see Miami. I can see all of the ocean here. It’s gorgeous.""You have to take it all in, every moment," she said.Zee took the plunge in tandem with Sgt. First Class Noah Watt, a member of the U.S. Army Parachute Team, popularly known as the Golden Knights, who do more than 850 tandem jumps each year."She did great," Watt said mid-jump. "She is Army strong today."Zee was in free fall at 120 miles per hour for part of her dive. Once her parachute was deployed and her descent slowed to an estimated 20 miles per hour, she was able to directly address her colleagues in the studio and the viewing audience."Now I feel like the world is mine," Zee said. "It’s all of ours because you’re experiencing it with me.""That’s the coolest thing of doing this," she said. "Here we are from two miles up jumping and I think it’s the first time so many people are able to experience it."GMA viewers watched as Zee descended to the ground and heard Watt give her the specific instructions -- knees up and then legs out -- that led to a smooth landing."It was incredible. It was amazing. It was every single word that we can use to describe that feeling," Zee said. "You’re free. The adrenaline is pumping. I don’t think I would want to do anything else with my life.""I’m ready to go again," she said.

Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart on When Kids Ask About Wealth and Fame

Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart on When Kids Ask About Wealth and Fame

Gareth Cattermole/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Jerry Seinfeld and Kevin Hart have a lot in common: They're both successful comedians and they're both raising young children. They're also both trying to figure out how to raise down-to-earth kids despite their wealth."You know what I say [when they ask if 'we're' rich]?" Seinfeld asked Hart in the newest episode of his series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. "I am. You're not."Seinfeld, 60, is raising three children, Sascha, 14, Julian, 11, and Shepherd, 9, with his wife Jessica. Hart has a daughter, Heaven, 9, and a son, Hendrix, 6, with his ex-wife Torrei.

When discussing when their kids figured out that their dads were famous (Seinfeld said it happened in the second grade), Hart said that Heaven didn't even bother to ask about his celebrity."My daughter got right to the point: 'Dad, are we rich? Are we rich, yes or no?'" Hart told Seinfeld with a laugh. "I said, 'Baby, we're doing well, but understand why.' I said, 'When you work hard, you put your mind to something, anything can happen and that's what I want you to do.'"Raising kids this way is a bit mind-boggling for Hart, who grew up in a rough area of Philadelphia. The character-forming events in his life are things that his kids will never experience, he said."It's gonna be different for them," Seinfeld told him. "Your problem was, things are bad, I gotta make it good. Their problem's gonna be, things are good, why do I feel bad?"

Kerry Washington’s Real-Life Wedding Ring ‘Scandal’

ABC/Lou Rocco(NEW YORK) -- Scandal alert!In one episode of Scandal, Olivia Pope is wearing actress Kerry Washington's real-life wedding ring by mistake. You’ll have to look closely to find it, though, because Washington is not telling which one.The star confessed to the oversight at Monday’s Accessories Council’s 20th anniversary ACE Awards.Washington told People magazine she never removes her wedding band unless she’s playing Olivia Pope.“Sometimes I don’t take it off! But only once,” she said about the notable slip-up.Though she won’t divulge which episode or even season it happened, she did invite her fans to try to spot it.“I can’t tell you! If you’re a real fan, you might find it. Keep looking, keep looking!” she said.Since marrying former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha last year and welcoming daughter Isabelle in April, Washington’s view of jewelry has changed.“I’ve never been a big jewelry and accessories person. I think if anything actually I find that I wear more jewelry more consistently because now I wear my wedding band,” Washington told People. “I’ve never really had a piece of jewelry that I wear all the time, and now I do.”So what does she usually do with her wedding band when she’s filming?“It’s usually pinned somewhere on me,” she said.

Christina Applegate Pays Forward Support She Received After Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Christina Applegate Pays Forward Support She Received After Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Paul A. Hebert/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Christina Applegate recently recalled the initial loneliness of receiving her breast cancer diagnosis.“I think when you get diagnosed with cancer, there’s such a sense of loneliness, but we need to know as people going through this is that you’re not alone,” Applegate said during a behind-the-scenes interview for her new PSA for Stand Up to Cancer and Cancer Treatment Centers of America.Fortunately, when the 42-year-old Anchorman actress learned she had breast cancer in 2008 and underwent a bilateral mastectomy, she found a village of support, including three women -- “my three survivor friends” -- she met through her physicians.“Our doctors understood that we, as cancer survivors or patients, are the ones that really understand one another on a deep cellular level,” she said, choking back tears. “I had these three strangers in my life who I called up at any time of the night and they would be there for me and answer any questions that I have.”Cancer-free since the double mastectomy, the former Married With Children star is paying forward the support she received by talking to fellow breast cancer patients and survivors.“I always get really nervous right before I get on the phone, because I think that this person might need to hear something different than the girl I talked to two weeks ago,” Applegate said in the interview. “But the one thing that helped me was, ‘I’m here for you,’ so that you never feel aloneTo this day, Applegate still talks to her trio of women, and not always about cancer.“Not talking about cancer every time they saw me was nice sometimes,” she said. “You wanted to be reminded that you’re much more than that in life, and you really are.”
