Clips From Friday: Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr. on "Red Tails;" Jimmy Fallon becomes "Tebowie"

Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr. sat down with Piers Morgan Friday to talk about their new film "Red Tails" and the historic importance of the Tuskegee airmen. "They represent African American's contribution to the war efforts of World War II," Gooding says. Howard notes "ultimately this led to the integration of the U.S. military." The film opens in theaters Friday.

Jimmy Fallon also sat down with Piers to perform his new song as "Tebowie" - the character that is created when Fallon mashes together Denver Broncos Quarterback Tim Tebow and musician David Bowie:

"Tebowie" sings "Come on everyone Tebow." Enjoy the performance.

    I was disappointed when listening to your show the other day when Jimmy Fallon sang about Tim Tebow. My disappointment was more with you Piers than with Mr. Fallon. Parodies are sung and recited all over the place in today's society by large groups of people who have an agenda, but good taste and good judgement still rest with the individual. Your laughter and banter with Mr. Fallon spoke volumes of your understanding of what Christianity means to a large segment of the American population. A while back when you were on the Apprentice, I was impressed with you when I heard you say to Stephen Baldwin that you were a good Christian also and should not be judged. If having good judgement means allowing a parody that offends a large segment of the American population, then perhaps a further explanation of what you meant when you made that comment to Mr. Baldwin about your faith is needed. Does good taste and "judging" others only apply when it affects an individual on a tv show, or should it apply to the greater good of the population.

    Bob,
    That was funny. Don't take everything so seriously.

    Lets see Jimmy Fallon make a joke about Mohammed and see what happens. So sad that some people seem to think Christianity can be mocked, with no fear of something horrid like what happens when someone does cartoons per Mohammed in Scandanavian countries. Not to mention Tim Tebow has NEVER ever said he thinks God wants him or the Broncos to win. Tim Tebow does say that giving thanks to a power greater than himself is important. Oh and why is it when some other Christian player looks upwards with praying hands, that they don't get dissed? Tim Tebow also does a great deal of good per his status. More so I bet than Piers Morgan and Jimmy Fallon combined!!

    Every joke offends somebody. It's not some referendum on Christianity, it's just a spoof for all the attention a mediocre football player has gotten. He's not better because he's a Christian and he's not worse, but somehow people have tried to make his success a religious thing. There's an old saying that comedy is when something bad happens to your neighbor, and tragedy is when it happens to you. Don't take it personally, it isn't about you and it's a joke.

      A a mediocre football player? Cannot be mediocre and win the Heisman Trophy in 2007.

      And with all the nastiness in politics,like with the Republicans Presidential candidates, and so much bad news in the country, I like when someone who is decent, kind and giving gets some positive attention.

    RE: The Tuskegee Airmen/Red Tail. film. Piers Morgan interview.
    How is this film different from the HBO film "The Tuskegee Airmen" released in 2000 starring Lawrence Fishburne and Cuba Gooding, Jr? I honestly believe the film should be mandatory viewing in every school in this nation! Fantastic positive inspiring role model for young black men. I wonder why it (HBO's version) was never mentioned during the interview.

    The discussion was good about the Tuskegee Airmen film, Red Tails, but it should have been mentioned that another ominous event occurred at Tuskegee . . . the syphlis experiments. It's part of U.S. History sad but true.
