Zoe Saldana and Jimmy Fallon Play Space Balls
Zoe Saldana was a guest on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to promote her new film Star Trek: Into Darkness in which she plays Lieutenant Uhura. Zoe agreed to a game of Space Ball, which is sort of like a cross between lacrosse and basketball, played in the dark with glow in the dark sticks and target. Zoe had on a protective apron and goggles and when she saw how bizarre she looked on the monitor she yelled "Oh MY GOD!" They began to play and Zoe could not stop swearing every time she missed the target. She explained that she is a very sore loser. She also said that it wasn't fair because Jimmy was probably practicing all day. Jimmy said he couldn't help it, this is his job. It's pretty funny, take a look:

SNL Spoof: Disney Channel Comedy Aww Nuts! Mom's a Ghost! Starring Kristen Wiig
In this SNL skit, the show takes aim at the Disney Channel. This new Disney Channel show is called Aww Nuts! Mom's a Ghost!. The sketch cleverly parodies the Disney Channel formula, although the set up is bizarre, even for Disney. Kristen Wiig plays a mom that gets turned into a Korean Water Ghost while on a business trip. She returns home and resumes her motherly duties, to the eternal embarrassment of her two precocious kids (Cecily Strong and Bobby Moynihan). Creepy ghost mom scuttles across the ceiling, making the kids late for school and crawls out of the TV on movie night. But having a creepy water ghost as a mom comes in handy when the kids' teacher comes calling to complain. It's really funny, take a look:

The dashboard cam shows Reese being handcuffed and telling the police things like she is pregnant, which she is not. Reese has vowed to never do anything like this ever again. Reese does address the officer as sir in the video and is upset the first officer refused to show him his picture ID. She was worried he might be a fake police officer. Take a look:

Lindsay Lohan Makes Late April Fool's Day Pregnancy Joke
Lindsay Lohan tweeted late Monday night or early this morning (depending on your time zone) that she was pregnant. She tweeted, "It's official. Pregnant..."
CNN says Lindsay's joke pregnancy tweet was retweeted over 9.000 times within one hour.
Ten hours later Lindsay followed up with another tweet that said, "April Fools. Where's everyone's sense of humor?"
E Online says Lindsay's pregnancy tweet was tweeted at 1:30 a.m. ET. on April 2nd. However, it was still April 1st on the west coast, so technically Lindsay Lohan got her joke in on time.
Snopes reports that there is an unofficial rule that the April Fool's Day pranking period expires at noon. The superstition goes that any jokes attempted after noon will "call bad luck down onto the head of the perpetrator."
