    The son of Robert F. Kennedy has been charged with harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly clashing with two nurses who tried to stop him from taking his 2-day-old baby boy from a Westchester maternity unit. Douglas Kennedy and his wife called the charges "absurd" and said the nurses were in the wrong. Jonathan Dienst reports.

    Actress Zoe Saldana appeared on "The Tonight Show" and chatted about her hilarious grandmother and the new NBC mini-series "Rosemary's Baby," a remake of the classic thriller.

    First, Saldana told a story about her grandmother who stole eight boxes of sunglasses from an AOL event meant for other attendees. "If you get caught, I'm not dealing with it," Saldana said to her.

    The next day, Saldana said her grandmother called her to help her get prescriptions on the sunglasses.

    "These illegal goods, smuggling them into Lenscrafters," Fallon joked.

    Then, the 35-year-old "Star Trek" actress talked about the production company she started with her sister called "Cinestar Productions." Their first project was "Rosemary's Baby," in which she also stars.

    "When they approached me to do the part, they actually said if you want to produce you guys can jump along," Saldana explained. "It was great, even though we were one of the last producers to get on board, they really allowed us to incorporate a lot of our ideas."

    "We did a bit on our show: the pros and cons of having a devil baby," Fallon said.

    "Why wasn't I invited?" Saldana asked. "Did you air it?"

    "Yeah you should watch our show, it's pretty good," Fallon joked.

    "Rosemary's Baby" airs Sunday, May 11 & Thursday, May 15 (9-11 p.m. ET).
