GIFFORD: Yeah, there--we're never at a loss, are we, the things to talk about. Ms. FULLER: We sure aren't. KOTB:"The Karate Kid" was a huge major league home run. GIFFORD: It kicked butt. Ms. FULLER: It did. Ms. COLLETTI: Oh. KOTB: Did you guys think that was going to happen? Ms. FULLER: Actually, I wasn't surprised because the trend was already in place."Shrek" has dominated the box office. KOTB: Yeah. Ms. FULLER: Families can only afford to go out together, mom and dad can't have a date night anymore. 10:30:29 CLIPS: Fuller, Colletti, Gifford, and Kotb voice over various clips of actors Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan seen in the new movie"The Karate Kid". KOTB: Yeah. GIFFORD: Yeah. Ms. FULLER: They can't afford it. GIFFORD: That's true, yeah. Ms. COLLETTI: And if you're going to a movie and you're in your 30s you probably have to take the kids and they're going to know, you know... GIFFORD: Yeah. Ms. FULLER: Well... KOTB: I thought"The A-Team" was going to do better. GIFFORD: I was surprised the... KOTB: Yeah. GIFFORD: They said it did OK, they're happy with their... Ms. FULLER: That 27 million, that's... GIFFORD: It ain't bad. 10:30:46 CLIP: Gifford, Fuller, and Colletti voice over a clip of actors Sharlto Copley, Liam Neeson, Quinton Jackson, and Bradley Cooper seen in the movie"The A-Team". Ms. FULLER: ...that's not bad. It's not... GIFFORD: But I don't like those kinds of movies and I thoroughly enjoyed"A-Team." So I don't know. I mean, it got terrible reviews. Ms. FULLER: Well... Ms. COLLETTI: Yeah. Ms. FULLER:"Karate Kid" put it on the B list. GIFFORD: Yeah. OK. Ms. FULLER: And that Jaden Smith, I mean... KOTB: He's adorable. Ms. FULLER: ...apparently he's outperformed his dad in almost every box office. 10:31:01 STILL: Photo of Smith. KOTB: Oh. What? Ms. FULLER: His dad only has a couple ahead of him. Yes. This was a bigger box office than daddy's. KOTB: OK, that's unbelievable. Ms. FULLER: So now there's going to be rivalry in the family. GIFFORD: Trouble in the family. Ms. FULLER: Yeah. KOTB: There was something in the paper the other day about how Piers Morgan might be going to CNN. We've had Piers on our show a bunch of... Ms. FULLER: Yes. Ms. COLLETTI: Yes. GIFFORD: He might be taking over for Larry King. Ms. FULLER: Yes. KOTB: Is that true or is that--what do you think? Ms. FULLER: Well, it's still--it's still a rumor. However, what CNN is saying is that they were looking at him for an 8:00 show to lead in to"Larry King." GIFFORD: Mm-hmm. 10:31:26 STILL: Photo of television personality Piers Morgan. Ms. FULLER: And he does host a very successful live chat show in the UK. KOTB: Yeah. GIFFORD: He's very talky. Ms. FULLER: He is. GIFFORD: But--and Larry King's ratings, I guess, year to year down 43 percent. KOTB: Yeah, they've gone down. Ms. FULLER: Yeah. STILL: Photo of CNN host Larry King. Ms. COLLETTI: They have gone down. If Piers does it, it'll be a totally different show because--you've worked with him, his wit is so quick, he's very funny. KOTB: Mm-hmm. GIFFORD: Yeah. Ms. COLLETTI: It may be more about Piers than the guest as it is now with Larry King. GIFFORD: Yeah. KOTB: Well, he's also a journalist, so he has that other side. I mean, he's done a lot of stuff in entertainment. Ms. FULLER: That's right. He was a newspaper editor. KOTB: But he was a newspaper guy for many, many years. GIFFORD: Yeah. Page six is talking about today now that Larry King may move back to his hometown of New York. Ms. FULLER: New York. Yes. GIFFORD: And was it true that his wife Shawn actually was a suicide attempt? Ms. FULLER: It appears to... Ms. COLLETTI: Yeah. Sad. Ms. FULLER: ...it appears to be true. GIFFORD: Oh, bless her heart. Ms. FULLER: There was a 911 call from her father. That was released by the police in LA. Ms. COLLETTI: Yeah. Ms. FULLER: It's very sad. KOTB: And there was... GIFFORD: Oh, it's so... KOTB: ...supposedly a note, some sort of note she left behind, too. Ms. FULLER: Yes. GIFFORD: Yeah. Ms. FULLER: Yeah. Ms. COLLETTI: Yeah. GIFFORD: Oh, God bless her. Ms. FULLER: So I guess maybe the sister thing was true after all. KOTB: All right. Wow. Ms. FULLER: Sad. KOTB: Angelina Jolie, we're hearing stuff that she may be up for the role of Cleopatra. Ms. FULLER: Oh, it's confirmed. KOTB: Oh, it's confirmed? GIFFORD: Who else... Ms. FULLER: Yes. Confirmed. Ms. COLLETTI: Can you imagine that, though? GIFFORD: ...who else could play it? Ms. COLLETTI: But imagine taking on such an iconic role. It hasn't been done in almost 50 years. And then Elizabeth Taylor, the most beautiful woman in the world in her time, I mean that's a big challenge. 10:32:25 STILL: Photo of actress Angelina Jolie. STILL: Photo of actress Elizabeth Taylor seen in the film"Cleopatra". Ms. FULLER: I know. But--it is a big challenge. But it makes sense. I mean, I think Angelina is considered the most beautiful woman in the world today, and even more, can you imagine if Brad Pitt is cast as Mark Antony. How hot would that be? STILL: Photo of Jolie. KOTB: Would that happen? Ms. COLLETTI: Bonnie, if they... Ms. FULLER: It could. Ms. COLLETTI: ...if they... Ms. FULLER: It could. Ms. COLLETTI: ...if they do"Mr. and Mrs. Smith" in togas, I'm not sure that the audience is going to buy that one. STILL: Photo of Jolie with partner Brad Pitt. GIFFORD: I don't know, I think I'd pay to see that. Ms. FULLER:"Mr. and Mrs. Smith" was huge and they had great chemistry. KOTB: Yeah. GIFFORD: Because it was a new relationship. KOTB: Yeah. Ms. FULLER: Uh-huh. Ms. COLLETTI: Yeah. KOTB: When it's--when you're used to it... GIFFORD: You had great chemistry, too, and you know what I'm talking about. 10:32:59 EXT DAY BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA MS: Jolie and Pitt pose for pictures on the red carpet at the 2009 66th Golden Globe Awards ceremony. Ms. COLLETTI: Yeah. You know who would make a great Mark Antony... KOTB: Who? Ms. COLLETTI: ...would be Russell Crowe. KOTB: Oh, I do love him. Ms. COLLETTI: He has this Burton-esque quality. KOTB: I do love him. Ms. COLLETTI: He even looks a little like Richard Burton. Ms. FULLER: He does. But I can't see heat between him and Angelina. KOTB: Yeah. Ms. COLLETTI: Oh, I can. KOTB: Maybe not. Ms. FULLER: Yeah. Oh, you can. Well... KOTB: Tell us--tell us about the Tonys. We watched them. And I know you guys were looking not only for who won and lost but for some of the fashions. Ms. FULLER: That's right. Best-dressed. KOTB: What was the home run, do you think, of the night? Ms. FULLER: Oh, Lea Michele from"Glee" in this gorgeous yellow gown. GIFFORD: That was very pretty. Ms. FULLER: Yes. 10:33:25 STILL: Actress Lea Michele is seen on the red carpet at the 64th Annual Tony Awards ceremony in New York. Ms. COLLETTI: Oh, I thought Scarlett Johansson looked amazing. I really did. KOTB: OK, here's the--that's... GIFFORD: Is that--is that Lea? Ms. FULLER: That's Lea Michele. KOTB: ...that's beautiful. Ms. FULLER: Yes. GIFFORD: Who's the designer on that? That's gorgeous. STILL: Actress Scarlett Johansson holds her Tony Award at the 64th Annual Tony Awards ceremony in New York. Ms. FULLER: And she--and the dress went all the way out, it fishtailed. And this is Scarlett Johansson. And I think everybody was looking--was looking at her, how she reacted to Ryan Reynolds, her husband, who was in the audience. GIFFORD: Yes. Ms. FULLER: That's what I hear. KOTB: Yes. I mean, it looked like--she didn't go in for the kiss initially, she went up and hugged, you know, and... STILL: Shot of Johansson on the red carpet at the 64th Annual Tony Awards ceremony in New York. GIFFORD: She got up--she got up in the aisle. KOTB: She got up and... Ms. COLLETTI: Yes. KOTB: ...and then went back again and then kissed and then went back. Ms. FULLER: Oh. But did she thank him? KOTB: And she thanked... GIFFORD: She did. KOTB: She did that--kind of. GIFFORD: But not well enough for Hoda. Ms. FULLER: Yeah, not enough. KOTB: I kind of need a little more oohing and gooing. I like a little over the top. What did you... GIFFORD: Especially outside of marriage. Oh, nothing. KOTB: What did--now what did you think of her... Ms. FULLER: Inside joke. KOTB: ...of the--of her hair? Because it was--it was pouring rain in New York last night, by the way. It was a horrible night to be out. Ms. FULLER: And I... GIFFORD: She's a gorgeous girl. Ms. COLLETTI: I thought she looked great. It's a very severe'do... KOTB: It was... Ms. COLLETTI: ...but she could pull it off. 10:34:16 STILL: Photo Johansson holding her Tony Award during the 64th Annual Tony Awards ceremony in New York. KOTB: It worked for her. Ms. FULLER: Well, she could pull off anything. Ms. COLLETTI: And then with the straps on the gown, I thought it... KOTB: I loved that, I loved the dress. Ms. FULLER: I think actually they did--they had to have done the hair like that because apparently the red carpet was not covered and it was all wet. STILL: Shot of Johansson on the red carpet at the 64th Annual Tony Awards ceremony in New York. GIFFORD: Yeah. KOTB: Oh. Ms. FULLER: So I think this was defensive hairdressing. KOTB: Who--anyone else you liked or didn't like, any other hits or misses? GIFFORD: I didn't like Catherine Zeta-Jones' hair. Ms. COLLETTI: CatherineZeta-Jones. Ms. FULLER: Oh, you didn't? KOTB: You liked it? Ms. FULLER: I thought her dress was beautiful. Ms. COLLETTI: I liked her dress. I thought the dress was beautiful. KOTB: Yes. STILL: Shot of actress Catherine Zeta-Jones seen on the red carpet at the 64th Annual Tony Awards ceremony in New York. GIFFORD: She is one the most gorgeous--she's another one who could play Cleopatra. Ms. FULLER: Oh, she... Ms. COLLETTI: Absolutely. Ms. FULLER: Yes. GIFFORD: She could be amazing as Cleopatra. KOTB: Oh, she would be good. GIFFORD: Yep, yep, yep. Ms. COLLETTI: Yeah. She does accents better. Ms. FULLER: And Michael Douglas as Caesar, that would have been perfect. GIFFORD: Oh. See, they don't need casting directors, that's what we're here for. KOTB: Now there--just lastly, there's a little Gary Coleman news, some additional stuff. Ms. FULLER: Oh, yes. Very strange. KOTB: What's the new stuff? Ms. COLLETTI: Strange. Ms. FULLER: A third will has emerged, and this time the beneficiary is a mystery woman called Anna Gray who apparently was a friend of his. Ms. COLLETTI: Yes. GIFFORD: Very dear friend. Ms. FULLER: Yeah. Ms. COLLETTI: And lived with him for a while before his marriage. Ms. FULLER: Yes, quite a while. KOTB: So this will's just now emerging? Ms. FULLER: That's right. Ms. COLLETTI: And this could get very sticky. I think there's a meeting... Ms. FULLER: Yes. GIFFORD: Is there... Ms. COLLETTI: ...today to discuss this. GIFFORD: ...is there any--is there any estate there to be divvied up? 10:35:13 STILL: Shot of the late actor Gary Coleman seen with his then-wife Shannon Price seen on"Today". KOTB: Right. Why are we fighting? GIFFORD: I mean, I thought he'd fallen on very hard times. Ms. FULLER: Well, Shannon Price--yes, but Shannon Price, his ex-wife, seems to think so, she's been busy taking his possessions out of the house and apparently was going to try and sell them. Ms. COLLETTI: Well, she sold his photo, too. 10:35:24 (PREVIOUSLY RECORDED) INT TODAY SHOW STUDIO MS: Colletti, Kotb, and Fuller voice over a clip of Coleman and Price talking during an interview with"Today" anchor Al Roker.
