Chris Kyle, Navy Seal Sniper’s interview with Conan on TBS… about his new book “American Sniper.”
The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History. With 255 kills, 160 of which were officially confirmed by the Department of Defense, Kyle is the deadliest marksman in U.S. military history. His widow Taya Renae Kyle was heavily involved with the making of the film.
The film stars Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller with Luke Grimes, Kyle Gallner, Sam Jaeger, Jake McDorman, and Cory Hardrict in supporting roles.
The world premiere was on November 11, 2014, at the American Film Institute Festival, followed by a limited theatrical release in the United States on December 25, 2014. It received a wide release on January 16, 2015 and set numerous box office opening records including the records for highest opening for a film released in January and giving Eastwood the biggest opening of his career.
At the 87th Academy Awards, American Sniper received six nominations, including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Actor for Cooper.
Watch Video Chris Kyle talks to Conan about “American Sniper”
Christopher Scott “Chris” Kyle (April 8, 1974 – February 2, 2013) was a United States Navy SEAL. The most lethal sniper in U.S. military history, he accumulated 160 confirmed kills out of 255 probable kills. These numbers are based on individual shooter logs, filled out at the end of a mission, and reported to higher command. Confirmed kills must have a witness.
Kyle served four tours in the Iraq War and was awarded several commendations for acts of heroism and meritorious service in combat. He received two Silver Star Medals, five Bronze Star Medals, one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, and two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals. Iraqi insurgents dubbed him the “Devil of Ramadi” and placed a series of ever increasing bounties on his head, purported to have eventually reached the low six figures. He became known by the moniker “Legend” among the general infantry and Marines whom he was tasked to protect. This title initially originated in jest among fellow SEALs following his taking of a sabbatical to train other snipers in Fallujah. He was wounded twice and involved in six IED attacks.
Kyle was honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy in 2009 and wrote a bestselling autobiography, American Sniper, which was published in January 2012. On February 2, 2013, Kyle was shot and killed at a shooting range near Chalk Mountain, Texas, along with friend Chad Littlefield. The man accused of killing them is awaiting trial for murder. A film adaptation of Kyle’s autobiography, directed by Clint Eastwood, was released in December 2014.

What a dumb a$$! Texas A&M Student Assistant Michael Richardson was ordered off the sideline by Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin for the second half of the Liberty Bowl after videos showed him hitting West Virginia players out of bounds.
Cameras caught Richardson taking cheap shots at WVU players on at least two separate occasions.
First he attempted to throw a covert elbow—which apparently wasn’t covert enough—to the back of the head of West Virginia running back Andrew Buie.
Kathy Lee Gifford claims Bill Cosby tried to kiss her!
On “Today” Tuesday morning, Kathie Lee Gifford, who used to open for Bill Cosby on tour in the late 1970s, spoke about her interaction with the comedian.
Gifford said, “I’m not saying the women’s allegations are not true. I’m just saying I never personally saw it with my own two eyes.”
She did say, however, “I’ll admit, toward the very very end of the last time I saw him, he did try to kiss me, and I said, ‘No,’ I said, ‘Bill, we’re friends.’ He goes, ‘OK, goodnight,’ and I said, ‘Goodnight.'”
