This training session didn't exactly go the way Conan O'Brien planned.
If there's one thing you can say about Gal Gadot, it's that she's got a hell of a lot of stamina. Her portrayal of DC superhero Diana Prince in 'Wonder Woman' is relentless from what we've seen so far, and it's all down to months of training as she explained to Conan O'Brien.
Gal Gadot at the 'Wonder Woman' premiere
Conan wanted to see if he could become as fit as Wonder Woman in 35 minutes on his show, as Gal Gadot looked on in amusement with her Czech trainer Rudolf Vrba. Together they practised sword-fighting, kicking and, weirdly, the can-can.

The host gets behind Barack Obama attempts to make peace with Cuba.
Conan O'Brien is set to make history by becoming the first late night talk show host to shoot in Cuba with his TBS show, as the President of the United States, Barack Obama, continues to strive for better relations with the Caribbean nation.
Conan O'Brien shows improved US-Cuba relations
The host of 'Conan' spent his Presidents Day weekend over in the Caribbean sun shooting an episode which is set to air on TBS on March 4th 2015. Spending the weekend in the island's capital, Havana, the show marks an end to the 1962 'Embargo on All Trade with Cuba', as president Barack Obama begins to take steps to form an alliance with the country including setting up an embassy in the capital and reducing the amount of travel restrictions between the nations.
It’s not the strangest Hollywood baby name ever, but we were all still wondering.
It’s been nearly a month since Mila Kunis and fiancee Ashton Kutcher welcomed their first child, Wyatt Isabelle, and the couple seem to be settling into parenthood perfectly. Giving his first interview since becoming a dad, Kutcher opened up to Conan O’Brien last night (October 28th), about how he and Mila have been coping so far, as well as revealing the story behind their daughter’s unusual name.
Kutcher said that he and Kunis feel “privileged” they can afford to take time with their new baby. “We don't have a nanny or a night nurse or anything. It's just the two of us,” the actor said.
Conan O'Brien had a special treat for viewers of his talk show 'Conan', when he showed the "exclusive footage" from a boxing match between Justin Bieber and Floyd Mayweather. Spoiler alert: Bieber does not win.
Finally, after years of waiting, we can see what it might possibly look like of someone to professionally beat up Justin Bieber. Talk show host Conan O'Brien gave us this special treat - an "exclusive footage" of Justin Bieber learning (and failing) to box with undefeated five-division world champion, floyd mayweather.
The video shows Bieber taking a few lazy punches at Mayweather before the boxer takes a sudden swipe, knocking him out. After that, Mayweather punches Bieber by the ropes, punches Bieber in the middle of the ring, chases Bieber as he flees around the ring, and every time lands a knock-out punch. Finally, there are clips of Mayweather using Biebers face like a speed bag, breaking a chair over his back, wailing on him with a baseball bat (before and after Bieber loses consciousness), and finally emptying a rubbish bin over Bieber while he lies unconscious.

Nick Offerman has directed a music video for Tweedy.
He's best known for playing the grumpy breakfast loving Ron Swanson on NBC's 'Parks and Recreation', but Nick Offerman has turned his hand to another profession: music video director. He's overseen the delightfully weird video for Tweedy's song, 'Low Key', which also features a host of celebrity cameos.
It's a different gig for the actor, usually seen in front of the camera
Tweedy is the latest project from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, comprised of himself and his son Spencer Tweedy. 'Low Key' is the first single from their first album, 'Sukierae', and the offbeat video shows them going door-to-door in attempts to sell their record to disinterested members of the public. Man of Steel actor Michael Shannon features as the assistant of the record label boss, whilst Melissa McCarthy, Conan O'Brien, Andy Richter and Chance the Rapper feature amongst the bemused homeowners who are visited by the band. There's also a very strange twist at the end of the video, but we won't ruin the surprise!

Yesterday the world of entertainment struggled to grasp the news, but it was nothing compared to Zelda Williams' own eloquent and touching statement, following her father's death.
Celebrities far and wide have rushed to pay tribute to Robin Williams in the wake of his suicide. This includes Conan O’Brien, who dedicated the end of his show on Monday to the brilliant comedian. The tribute was particularly raw, because O’Brien, Andy Richter and their guest of the night Will Arnett received the news during the taping of the show, so they had to react on the spot.
O'Brien reacted to the news in the moment. He was visibly distraught by the announcement.
“We tape these shows a few hours early, and by the time you see this now on TV, I’m sure that you’ll know. I’m sorry to anybody in our studio audience that I’m breaking this news—this is absolutely shocking and horrifying, and so upsetting on every level,” O’Brien was visibly trying to keep his composure at the news.

First opinion goes to an unlikely source...
It’s not one of the year’s most anticipated games; it’s the most anticipated game of the year. And with that comes a heightened wait for the first review. Ironic, then, that Conan O’Brien should get the honour on his YoutTube series, ‘Clueless Gamer’. Click here to see him shoot innocent people, deliver parcels the wrong way and collect chemicals.
Yes, the YouTube comments are filled with fanboys either saying the PS4’s graphics “suck” or “rule”, and no, this isn’t a real review; Conan spends more time ridiculing the man sitting next to him than talking about the game. But it’s still an exciting morsel ahead of next week’s May 27 release.
