Exes Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman Hang Out (with Kimmel’s Fiancee!)

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- On Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel, 45, and his fiancée, Molly McNearney, caught up with Kimmel’s ex-girlfriend Sarah Silverman, 42, at AFI’s 41st Life Achievement Award Tribute to Mel Brooks in Hollywood, and happily posed for photos together.

Silverman and Kimmel dated for five years before they amicably split in 2009. The Jimmy Kimmel Live host got engaged to McNearney, a co-head writer on his ABC talk show, last summer.

When asked to describe her relationship with Kimmel, Silverman joked, “You know when you’re in New York and you pass by those hot dog vendors and you’re like, ‘I’m not going to eat this. It’s not good for me.’ And then the smell gets to you and you can’t help yourself. … Then later on you’re puking and you’re just like, ‘Why did I put this inside me?’ … It’s like that. It was a roller coaster!”

But clearly it wasn’t that bad.

Samuel L. Jackson to Star in New Obama Ad?

ABC/Eric McCandless(NEW YORK) -- Samuel L. Jackson and the super PAC that funds comedian Sarah Silverman’s “Great Schlep” are reportedly in talks to cut a new ad, which could feature the “Pulp Fiction” actor telling voters to “Wake the f**k up, vote for Obama.”

The spot has been pitched and would be written by the author Adam Mansbach, whose salty children’s book, “Go the F**k to Sleep,” became a viral hit when Jackson’s reading of it was posted on YouTube.

The New York Post reported Friday morning that the script was in and the shoot was imminent, but Ben Wyskida of the Jewish Council and Education and Research told ABC News Friday night that while Jackson had expressed interest in doing the ad, there is no deal just yet.

First up, Wyskida said, was a new video featuring Silverman, who in 2008 famously asked young (mostly Jewish) voters to go down to Florida -- in The Great Schlep -- to guilt their grandparents into voting for then-candidate Barack Obama.

This election season, Silverman, backed by super PAC bucks, released a video asking casino magnate and Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson to switch sides and send President Obama the $100 million he had purportedly pledged to the Romney cause. He did not.
