The swans may come a-swimming, but Ellen has something even more magical planned for Day 7 of 12 Days of Giveaways! Less than two weeks from Christmas, the presents are already overflowing from the many trees decorating her stage, and Ellen's only halfway through! Let the gift-giving keep on keeping on...
Heralding the holiday season as his famous alter ego Madea, TYLER PERRY is here! The entertainment mogul, who built a brand around the sensational character, wrote, produced, directed and stars in the latest installment of his franchise, "A Madea Christmas," and will offer Ellen plenty of good tidings and cheer. One of the most revered entertainers and businessmen in Hollywood, Tyler's work includes comedies like "Why Did I Get Married?" and "Diary of Mad Black Woman," plus dramas like "For Colored Girls" and "Temptation," and a long list of real-life good deeds that give back to his community.
There's more when KEN JEONG swoops by! The comedian will dish on all things minion when he talks "Despicable Me 2" with Ellen just in time for the DVD release. Known for his scene-stealing roles in films like "The Hangover," "Pineapple Express" and "Pain & Gain," Ken voiced Floyd in the popular animated sequel, and had kids (and their parents) everywhere in hysterics. He can play any part, and he's bringing all that funny straight to Ellen!
One of Ellen's favorite bands, TIRED PONY performs! Deemed a "music supergroup," this alt-rock collaboration matches the talents of Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody and Iain Archer, Belle & Sebastian's Richard Colburn, R.E.M's Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey, Troy Stewart and producer Jacknife Lee. It also features multi-talented actress Minnie Driver! Tired Pony's music stems from the roots of the Earth, inspired by fresh air and natural mysticism tinged with folk, Americana and country. They'll play a track from their new album, "The Ghost of the Mountain"!
On Friday, Ellen goes all-out!
