Anthony Anderson will soon be returning to the world of criminal investigations, and the actor says he's looking forward to exploring a new creative realm.

Anderson spoke with ET on the red carpet at the 4th Annual Celebration of Black Cinema & Television event in Los Angeles on Monday, and opened up about his role in the Law & Order revival after eight seasons of starring on the celebrated sitcom Black-ish.

"I start Wednesday!" Anderson told ET's Kevin Frazier. "I fly out tomorrow at 7 a.m. for a wardrobe fitting and hair and makeup test and then I start work first thing Wednesday morning at 5 a.m."

"It means a great deal," continued Anderson. "They're bringing the show back and billing it as their 21st year... full circle is what it is, and it's a good thing."

Anderson -- who was honored on Monday at the star-studded Critics Choice Association event with the Award for Producer of the Year for Television -- said that he's looking forward to stepping into the shoes of Detective Kevin Bernard for the first time since 2010, when the show went off the air.

"You know, a lot of people ask why, and I say why not? It's the opportunity to go back and reprise [my] character, and have a little fun in the dramatic space for a little while," Anderson shared.

ET first learned last month that Anderson would be reprising the role in the NBC revival, with a one-season contractual commitment.

Meanwhile, his long-running family sitcom Black-ish is soon kicking off its final season, and Anderson addressed the fact that, despite nearly a dozen Emmy nominations during his time on the show -- both as star and executive producer -- he's never actually taken home the trophy.

"Yeah, we are 0 for 11," Anderson said, with a sigh.

"And if it doesn't happen, then you're gonna see me visibly upset on camera," he jokingly added with a laugh. "We're gonna move some furniture around, that's what were gonna do!"

The eighth and final season of Black-ish premieres Tuesday, Jan. 4. on ABC.

Nicole Kidman is an Oscar-winning actress with a slew of celebrated performances on the big and small screen -- but even bona fide moviestardom doesn't make her career particularly interesting for her daughters.

Kidman walked the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of her new film Being the Ricardos at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures on Monday, and she spoke with ET's Nischelle Turner about her past remarks in which she said her kids were her "biggest critics."

The celebrated actress said she's actually happy about it, because "they're forging their own paths."

"I love that they're not obsessed with what I do," she said of her two young daughters -- 13-year-old Sunday and 10-year-old Faith, whom she shares with husband Keith Urban. "They're really into what they do."

When it comes to wanting to impress her family, Kidman said it's not her children but rather her mom, Janelle, who she's looking to wow.

"I want to impress my mom. That's what  want to do," Kidman said with a smile. "She still hasn't see the film, so we'll see."

In Being the Ricardos, Kidman stars as comedy icon Lucille Ball, and the film details a span of time in her life when Ball starred opposite husband Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem) in the iconic sitcom I Love Lucy.

At a screening in New York last week, Kidman told ET that she loved playing Ball, sharing that the iconic I Love Lucy grape scene was her favorite to film.

"Being able to play a woman who was so extraordinary in what she accomplished and what she [did], her talent, [that was my favorite]." she expressed.

"Also just in her resilience and her ability to not apologize for who she was. I think she got to this stage in her life where she was like, 'I'm smart, I'm good at what I do and I'm not gonna apologize for that,'" Kidman added. "Which is a really fascinating, direct, sort of way of behaving and she was like that. Not at the beginning, you know, but she became like that. But also then as a physical comedian she was just exquisite. And to get lost in that as an actor was absolutely new territory for me."

Being the Ricardos arrives in theaters Dec. 10 and streams Dec. 21 on Prime Video. See more in the video below.

Javier Bardem is headed under the sea! The celebrated actor will soon be hitting screens as King Triton in the upcoming live-action adaption of Disney's The Little Mermaid, and he's got nothing but praise for his co-star, Halle Bailey.

Bardem walked the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of his new film Being the Ricardos at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures on Monday, and he spoke with ET's Nischelle Turner about his forthcoming fantasy adventure.

While Bardem didn't divulge much about exactly how much singing he's set to do as King Triton, he admitted that performing alongside Bailey is more than a little intimidating.

"[When you're] close to Halle, it's impossible to sing," Bardem shared with a laugh, marveling at the 21-year-old performer's undeniable powerhouse vocal talent.

"She was warming up her voice near me, and I was like 'What was that?' She goes, 'Oh, I was just warming up,'" he recalled. "It would take me five years to do that!"

Meanwhile, before playing the might King Triton, he'll be playing the iconic king of TV sitcoms, Desi Arnaz, in the new biopic Being the Ricardos.

Both Bardem and his co-star Nicole Kidman are getting a lot of awards season buzz for their high-profile roles, and Bardem joked that he has no problem embracing the love and accepting any awards people want to bestow upon him.

"Bring them on! Put them in the pockets!" Bardem said with a broad smile.

Being the Ricardos arrives in theaters Dec. 10 and streams Dec. 21 on Amazon Prime Video.

Michelle Young has concerns about one of her final three men. At the end of Monday night's The Bachelorette: Men Tell All episode, fans got a sneak peek look at the final two episodes of Michelle's journey for love.

Michelle gushes over being left with three "incredible men" at the start of the preview for the Fantasy Suites episode.

There's Nayte, who confesses he's "crazy" about the Bachelorette, before she admits, "I’ve never had a feeling like when I kiss Nayte. He is soulmate material." Then there's Joe, Michelle's "slice of home," who tells her, "I’m falling in love with you." Last up, there's Brandon, who Michelle says she "can see spending" her life with.

As all three connections deepen, concern over who will be next to go runs deep.

"This is tough for me," Nayte admits at one point. "I’ve been so focused on my connection with Michelle. It wasn’t until today that I realized I’m not the only one catching feelings for her... That’s my girl." 

"Do I think Nayte’s ready?" Brandon asks. "No."

"I think Brandon’s a good guy, but I’m her guy," Joe insists.

"When you’re in love with three people, how do you know which person is your person?" Michelle questions, as her dad, Ephraim, tries to narrow down her choice by one.

"My concern is that he would become a jealous person," Ephraim tells the cameras, which his daughter seemingly reacts to by saying, "That just changed everything. I could have stronger feelings for him than he does for me. I don’t deserve to be constantly heartbroken."

Ephraim apparently has concerns about Joe, telling him, "She has these feelings for you, and I just hope that they’re the same," while Michelle's mom, LaVonne, doesn't seem impressed by Nayte, even when he tells her, "I am very ready to get down on one knee."

"I’m not sure you’re 100 percent in," she replies.

Nayte thinks he's found his "forever person," and Brandon admits that he doesn't "want to let this woman go."

When it's time for the rose ceremony, Brandon interrupts and asks to speak to Michelle. The camera then flashes to a sobbing Michelle standing outside, as she laments, "This is so hard."

Michelle eventually does pick her final two, but the concern over one man's readiness, or lack thereof, lingers on.

"I would be devastated if he decided he couldn’t do this," she says, before confronting the man in question with her fears.

"Falling in love is one thing, an engagement is another thing," she says. "Which of those are you ready for?" 

From there, cameras turn to what appears to be Michelle sobbing at her final rose ceremony as she questions, "Oh god. What am I doing?"

The Fantasy Suites episode of The Bachelorette will air Tuesday, Dec. 14, followed by the three-hour season finale on Dec. 21. ET has got you covered throughout the entirety of Michelle's season with all of our Bachelorette coverage.

The Bachelorette: Men Tell All is here! During Monday's special episode of Michelle Young's season, the teacher's suitors gave their takes on the season's drama and Michelle confronted her exes, all of which ET is breaking down in the recap below.

Pizza Peter and Will traded insults, before Martin was accused of having a girlfriend during filming and Rick alleged that Chris said a crude remark.

Later, attention turned to Jamie and his circuitous way of responding to accusations, before Rick and Rodney got their chance at closure.

A kind surprise for Olu followed, and things wrapped up with a dramatic preview of what's to come.

Keep reading for a full recap of the Men Tell All episode of The Bachelorette.

Will and Peter Make Amends

Will and Peter's drama began back in episode 3, when Will called Peter a narcissist, and Peter responded by throwing Will's jacket in the pool. 

Will stuck to his statement at the start of the show, confirming that he "absolutely" stood by his insult directed at Peter, who considers himself to be a Pizzapreneur.

"This is the show to find love," Will told Peter. "If you really wanted to promote your business, you should’ve went on Shark Tank."

Casey backed Will's dislike for Peter, calling him "awful all day long." Peter responded to the heat by saying that his Florida pizza shop helps him provide for his mom and sister, but Will had a comeback for that, too.

"Tell your sister to stay out of my DMs," Will told Peter. "... She slid into my DMs like it was home plate." 

Peter went on to lament that Will's public criticism of him has led to negative reviews for his pizza shop, so much so that he revealed he's suing Will for defamation of character.

Later in the episode, Peter treated the group to pizza flown in from his shop, and Will didn't criticize the slice. The semi-peace offering made Peter wave a white flag of his own, when he put his hand out for Will to shake. Will accepted Peter's hand, and thus the feud has ended.

Martin Apologizes

Martin ruffled feathers when he said Michelle was "immature" for not dealing with her past trauma. When the comment made it back to Michelle, she sent Martin home. In his car ride exit, Martin declared, "I wouldn’t even care to give her a shot. It’s sad. That’s all it is. I feel sad for her. A woman like that does not deserve my time."

The comments were a source of contention on Men Tell All, with Olu calling Martin "two-faced" and Romeo blasting him for a "triple whammy of misogyny." Will took it one step further, claiming that Martin had a girlfriend during filming. Martin denied as much, but admitted that he had dated his current girlfriend before the show, and the pair has since gotten back together following its conclusion.

Later, when Michelle joined the group, Martin told her, "We did have a lot of miscommunication and misunderstanding in a lot of our conversations. I do apologize for the way things ended." 

Michelle didn't let him off that easily, though, instead questioning, "Why did you feel that it was OK to belittle me?"

"I don’t express myself sometimes to the best of my abilities, so I do apologize for saying the things I said in the car," Martin responded. "But thanks to this whole process, I did find my soulmate and I do treat her very much like a queen. You helped a lot in that process."

Michelle wasn't so sure about that, telling Martin, "You have to understand what that means to treat a woman like a queen. It’s listening to her when she’s vulnerable, and embracing what she’s been through instead of calling her immature and pointing at trauma being immature, because those words really do hit deep. Not only for me, but so many other women." 

"That’s why I’m here, as a man, apologizing for what I said in that very moment," Martin replied. "Not saying that it was OK. I’m apologizing for it."

Michelle accepted Martin's apology.

Rick Makes a Shocking Claim

Chris had a villainous turn when he claimed that some men believed they were shoe-ins to win Michelle's heart, despite no such comments. On Men Tell All, Chris said his "intentions were genuine," but admitted that it "might have come off a little strong." 

Casey called Chris' move "desperate," while Rick claimed that Chris once told him that "better-looking women [than Michelle] have f**ked his d**k." Olu slammed Chris for questioning his IQ, telling him, "You’re looking at Black excellence right here. I have a whole Masters degree, boy." Chris declined to comment to any of the accusations.

When Michelle came out, Chris said that he wanted to "truly apologize" to her, without getting into any specifics. She thanked him stating, "I appreciate you, thank you, and I hope you’re doing well."

Jamie Shares His Side

Jamie became a source of controversy after telling Michelle that the men were questioning her character, though it was untrue. During one conversation with a producer, Jamie even slammed Michelle for being "in f**king spring break mode."

On Men Tell All, Jamie tried to explain away the "spring break" comment, by revealing that it came after he walked in on Michelle having an "intimate moment" with someone else, stating, "It was more so about me being one of 20 guys."

The supposed explanations continued, while Casey, Will, Rodney, Romeo, and more all blasted Jamie for his inability to give a straight answer.

Jamie's circuitous explanations continued into the conversation about him leading Michelle to believe that she couldn't trust her men. Michelle emotionally confronted the guys after that talk with Jamie, but he never revealed that it was him who'd planted those seeds of doubt.

"I was going to say something, like 'Hey, I was the one who said it,' but I felt like I was taking the attention away from what we had gained as a group," Jamie said on Men Tell All.

When Michelle came out, Jamie provided compliment after compliment to the Bachelorette, especially praising her for lifting others up, something, he said, he likes to do as well.

"As I watch back, and I see those things you have said on camera about me going through a spring break mode, you expressed that you felt like the men in the house were below you," she said. "… I don’t understand how you can be so comfortable or quick to express and preach positivity, when that’s not what you’re showcasing 100 percent of the time. And that’s where I have a problem, because I’m not seeing any responsibility."

Jamie was quick to apologize if "anybody feels hurt" by his comments, but Michelle shut that down, yelling, "No!" Before she could delve more into her feelings, Jamie spoke on, trying to explain away his comments as venting.

"I took a lot of care when we were on the show to not talk about anybody in a negative manner," he said, to which Michelle replied, "In front of their face." 

"That’s not even accurate, though," Jamie insisted. "... I’m just saying that moment was more about me than me going through and expressing my genuine opinion about everybody. That was never the reason or intention for me to come here."

Michelle continued the conversation by telling Jamie that "words do matter." When he attempted to respond in a similar way as he had all night, Michelle said she's "closing this conversation."

"It is frustrating to sit here and truly not feel like you have learned from those comments and those things that you have said, because your apologies are apologizing because you have to if someone feels hurt. You’re putting it on them, like they’re at fault for what you said," she explained. "... I think it’s very clear why this relationship didn’t work out."

Jamie responded by saying that he believes in "accountability," adding, "I apologize for what I said... I was in the wrong, and I apologize for that."

Michelle thanked Jamie for his apology and accepted it. 

Rodney Says He's Team Michelle

As the show continued, Rick and Michelle got their closure, and co-host Tayshia Adamstearfully reflected on her breakup from Zac Clark. The emotions became too much for Tayshia, who exited the stage in tears during Rodney's turn in the hot seat, leaving co-host Kaitlyn Bristowe to conduct the conversation by herself.

Rodney touched on the "bittersweet" memories he has with Michelle, before Tayshia made her return for the episode's next segment. Later, when Michelle joined the group, she praised Rodney for his time on the show.

"You knew who you were coming into it, you stayed true to that. You were always kind, regardless of if things were going your way or not," she said. "That’s something that I can truly respect, because it’s not always easy to be kind when things are tough, so Rodney, I really appreciate that." 

Rodney responded in kind, complimenting Michelle on carrying herself with "so much class, so much poise, so much grace." 

"I’m just so happy for you and I’m just so proud of everything we went through on our journey. You taught me so much. I’m so grateful and so thankful for everything that you did for me," he said. "You said you’ll always be Team Rodney and cheering for me, so as you know, I’m always Team Michelle cheering for you. As long as you’re happy, I’m happy. I just wish you nothing but the best."

Michelle Praises Olu

Michelle pointed to Olu as the man she believes she sent home a little too early. The pair had an emotional conversation about Michelle's personal poem and her feelings of not being seen, which was something Michelle greatly appreciated.

"You and I just had so many wonderful conversations. I felt like you always had my best interests in mind," she praised. "When you were able to sit down on that couch with me, and truly feel and cry those real tears when I was feeling unseen, the fact that you were able to show that emotion with me in that moment when I was feeling hurt, I felt very connected with you. It is definitely something I wish I had more time to explore."

"I do appreciate that," Olu replied. "Me personally, I do thank you for this journey. You taught me how to go above and beyond for a woman. Just ultimately being vulnerable and showing that emotional side, it’s something that I’m not really used to doing in my previous relationships, so I thank you for that."

The episode came to a close with a dramatic preview of what's to come in the Fantasy Suites and finale episodes.

The Fantasy Suites episode of The Bachelorette will air Tuesday, Dec. 14, followed by the three-hour season finale on Dec. 21. ET has got you covered throughout the entirety of Michelle's season with all of our Bachelorette coverage.
