Jessica Lange, Lupita Nyong'o -- Thursday, February 20, 2014
With the Oscars near, Ellen has asked a two-time Academy Award winner and six-time nominee to join her for a chat! JESSICA LANGE stops by, and the actress will be revealing as much as Ellen can extract about her new movie "In Secret." Jessica's incredibly long list of credits includes iconic films like "Tootsie," "King Kong" and "Cape Fear." Her commitment and skill at her craft allow her to take people on journeys far and near, where they laugh, cry, and sometimes both! She's the perfect candidate for a game! See how Jessica stuns the crowd when she celebrates cinema with our dazzling Oscar host! An Oscar frontrunner and style It-girl, LUPITA NYONG'O makes her first appearance on Ellen after a remarkable entrée to Hollywood! The breakout star of "12 Years a Slave" earned her first Academy Award nomination this year for Best Supporting Actress, an honor which is even more impressive knowing the film is her first movie ever! Lupita captivated audiences with her riveting portrayal of a young slave, battered and broken, but with a spirit that would never die. She's already won a SAG Award, Critics' Choice Award, and 21 other honors, and according to one acceptance speech, her father's just happy she got a job! Time for Lupita to meet Ellen! Plus, STEVE SPANGLER returns for more science experiments! Hopefully, he won't toilet paper the studio again, but you just never know… On Friday, Ellen's room will light up with stars!
