James Corden and Julia Roberts reenacted scenes from Roberts' wide-ranging filmography on Wednesday, calling up brief, famous scenes from Notting Hill, Pretty Woman, Erin Brockovich and more on The Late Late Show. Roberts stopped by to promote her upcoming movie, Wonder.

Corden got to play most of the famous leading men in the last thirty years of Hollywood blockbusters – he filled in for a mopey Hugh Grant in Notting Hill, a bathing Tom Hanks in Charlie Wilson's War and an aloof Jude Law in Closer.

Best of all was Corden's

“What are you doing?” Roberts asked him.

Dionne Warwick Doc in the Works

Dionne Warwick: Live in Concert”

“I Say a Little Prayer,” “Walk on By,” “Do You Know the Way to San Jose” — these are the kinds of songs that inspire strangers to sing together, with or without alcohol. And these are just three of Dionne Warwick’s many hits. “Don’t Make Me Over,” a new documentary film about the legendary songstress, is in the works. Variety reports that “David Garrett’s Mister Smith Entertainment will launch sales on the film and present select footage to international buyers at next month’s Cannes Market.”

Between 1962 and 1998, 69 of Warwick’s singles made the Billboard Hot 100. She is the second most-charted female vocalist of all time (Aretha Franklin holds the record). While millions are familiar with Warwick’s music, the icon is notoriously private. “Don’t Make Me Over” “brings to life the real Dionne Warwick, an African-American woman who broke racial and gender barriers, a dedicated humanitarian fighting injustice worldwide, and a singer whose music became the soundtrack for generations,” a statement promises.

The doc is co-directed and co-produced by David Heilbroner (“Stonewall Uprising”) and Dave Wooley and includes untold stories from Gladys Knight, Cissy Houston, Smokey Robinson, and more.

“While the world knows her many hits, Dionne has quietly guarded her astonishing, inspiring personal journey,” said Heilbroner. “We are both honored and thrilled to bring this great artist’s life and legacy to the screen.”

The Advocate has described Warwick as “one of the most famous allies Lgbt people have ever known.” Warwick participated in a number of of charity events benefiting the fight against AIDS during the 1980s, and in 1985 she enlisted Knight, Elton John, and others to record a cover of “That’s What Friends are For” to raise money for amFAR, an organization dedicated to AIDS research. “The song wound up in Billboard’s number 1 spot, where it sat for weeks, raising more than $3 million,” The Advocate writes.

Dionne Warwick Doc in the Works was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

This Is Us Season 1 Episode 10 Review: Last Christmas

That was truly unexpected.

I would never have guessed This Is Us Season 1 Episode 10 would deliver the most intense hour we'd seen to date. 

After all, it was our first Christmas with the Pearson family. Surely we were in for some sweet memories, right? Wrong! Although we learned "nothing bad ever happens on Christmas Eve," even that may be coming to an end this year.

View Slideshow: This Is Us Photos from "Last Christmas"

This one was even delivered to us a little differently, with our venture into the past coming at the beginning and right at the very end of the hour. 

The year was 1989, and although that particular Christmas Eve featured a trip to the emergency room so Kate could have her appendix removed, the focus was more on Randall than Kate, as Dr. K. was also admitted for wrapping his LeSabre around a tree.
