J llJ, aor, 's HOLLYWOOD -- Jimmy Fallon's re- cent duets with Barbra Streisand -- who returned to the talk-show genre after a 50-year absence -- as Elvis Presley, Blake Shelton and Michael Buble, were magic moments! One of Barbra's conditions for doing the show was to show only the left side of her face, which she favors. It would have cost a fortune to turn the entire set around, as Rosie O' Donnell did when Barbra appeared on her aftemoon show, so Fallon playfully suggested she take his seat and interview him. When Jay Leno graciously handed over "The Tonight Show" to Fallon, he said he had no hard feelings toward NBC, and he meant it. It's obvious he still considers himself part of the NBC family. When Leno left his 22-year stint hosting "The Tonight Show," he continued his nbc. com web series, "Jay's Garage." It be- came popular, and now he's set to host a new show on CNBC centered around his love of cars. *** Last year was definitely the best for Bryan Cranston. Not only did he win the Outer Critics Circle Award and the Tony Award for his portrayal of Lyndon Johnson in the play "All the Way," but he also won the Critic's Choice, the Saturn and two Emmy Awards, one for himself and one for "Breaking Bad." After a short stint battling "Godzilla" last summer, he's jumping into "Trumbo," the bio picture about Dalton Trumbo -- who was blacklisted during the McCarthy/House Un-American hearings era -- with Helen Mirren and John Goodwin. In January, he starts the thriller "The Infiltrator," which will shoot in London, Paris and Florida ... Florida? *** Would you be, lieve plans are afoot to reboot "Ghostbusters ...... with female leads? If direc- tor Paul Feig gets his way, "Ghost- busters 3" will be just that. It's hard to believe they'll be able to find female stars to equal the magic of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd ..... Harold Ramis and Ernie Hud- son .... Former "S uperman" Tom Welling, who starred for 10 seasons in "Smallville," then hit the big screen in "Draft Day," will next star in the film ver- sion of Nicholas Sparks "The Choice." *** Robert Downey Jr. told both David Letterman and Ellen DeGeneres that he would not star in "Iron Man 4." "Iron Man" grossed $585.1 million; "Iron Man 2" grossed $624 million; "The Avengers," in which he played Iron Man, grossed $1.5 billion; and "Iron Man 3" grossed $1.2 billion. There will be an "Iron Man 4," and there is no way it will be made it without him. These interviews must be a ploy to get a bigger paycheck. That franchise is not made of iron ... it's made of solid gold! (c) 2014 King Features Synd.. Inc. Robert Downey Jr. 1. LAN- GUAGE: What does the Greek prefix "chrono" mean? 2.
