I hope you’re having a wonderful Presidents' Day Weekend! I’m celebrating with my old powdered wigs and my wooden teeth.

If you’re still feeling the glow from Valentine’s Day, you’ll be happy to know Bradley Cooper is here this week. I can’t wait to talk about the finer details of his carefully nuanced and brilliant performance in "American Hustle," but mostly I want to ask him about his hair.

I’ve also got the Oscar-nominated breakout star from the Oscar-nominated film “12 Years a Slave,” Lupita Nyong’o. Her performance is astounding. I can’t wait to meet her.

He gave an Oscar-worthy performance in “The Wolf of Wall Street" -- Jonah Hill is here! It was one of my favorite movies of the year, even though it didn’t have an actual wolf in it.

Speaking of Oscar nominees, Jessica Lange is here! She’s won two Academy awards and has been nominated six times! That’s more times than I’ve been arrested. Only one more, but still.

My friend Harry Connick, Jr. is here this week, too. He’s a judge on "American Idol" this season, and I’m gonna get him to tell me who he thinks will take home the title.

I also found a young dancer on YouTube who you just have to see to believe. I brought him here all the way from India to see it, and I still don’t believe it.

If you’ve been watching the Olympics, you’ll be excited to hear snowboarder Jamie Anderson is giving me her first US interview since winning a gold medal in Sochi. I can’t wait to ask her the question on everyone’s mind: Can I have it?

Lionel Richie is here to sing one of his classic hits! I won’t tell you which one. He’ll stop by and say hello, but he’s welcome to stay all night long, so long as he doesn’t start dancing on the ceiling.

I’m also talking to the hilarious David Spade, my science expert Steve Spangler, and my beauty expert Kym Douglas!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
