He'll be tapping his toes, filling the room with laughter, and sharing his life with the world when he brings Broadway to television. BILLY CRYSTAL is here! Whether he's "Deconstructing Harry," conversing with Sally, analyzing things, or voicing cartoons, the all-star actor is an animated guy and always up to something! Billy won a Tony Award for his autobiographical, one-man show "700 Sundays," and now he's moving it to the small screen for an HBO special. Billy returns to see Ellen for the first time in eight years, and since both are becoming regulars at the Oscars, they'll certainly have much to go over!
Proud father and doting TV dad DAX SHEPARD handles "Parenthood" well. Though his wife has made quite a few memorable appearances on Ellen, this will be the actor's first time on the show! As cool, endearing and as fun as Dax is on his hit television series, he's many times better in person! Plus, with a house full of beautiful women, he'll definitely have some amusing stories to share with our host!
Then, one of Ellen's favorite new artists, FRANK TURNER performs! He's British, he's cute and he's found his own musical niche with his latest CD, "Tape Deck Heart." Frank took to the wide open road to build a following with his folk/punk tunes, and became a jet-setter and festival sensation after he captivated crowds. From the English coast to American soil, around the world and back again, Frank will take a break from his US tour to sing "The Way I Tend to Be" to Ellen and her fans!
On Wednesday, it's all happening on Ellen's stage!
