>> any feel-good movies. sthoo this is not a family-friendly weekend.
>> tv, any news?
>> mad men coming back on april 7th . it's going to be a two-hour premier on anc. last season was the most watched. fans had to wait something like 17 months before the last season premier. not this time. it's going to be taking place in just a couple of months, so they can look forward to that.
>> i was reading somewhere where bradley cooper was talking about wanting to play lance armstrong in a movie. is that a real project?
>> yes. so j.j. abrams acquired the rights to it. he will be producing it, and reportedly it's going to be about a book that's called "cycle of lies" that's getting ready to come out soon. matthew mcconhey -- i'm sorry, bradley cooper said he is fascinated by lance armstrong , and he would love to play it.
>> wasn't matt damon going to do a movie about lance armstrong ?

>> let's talk oscars, and i love that we heard the news adel is going to perform?
>> she originally recorded the song with a 77 piece orchestra. i don't know if that's going to be happening during the actual telecast, but this is the first time she's performed since giving birth to her son, angelo. we know his name. that's breaking news.
>> jason, do people actually sing live at the academy awards ? i'm curious.
>> i am told they do. no lip syncing drama there.
>> it's not allowed there?
>> i'm pretty sure they do. they may do a back vocal track sometimes, but this is the first time, like i said, since giving birth, and she's never done this song live before either, so it's going to be interesting to see, but she's nominated for an oscar as well.
>> ryan seacrest , who is a friend of yours and works with you, he opened up about his relationship with juliann huff on chelsea lately .
