Not really sure how this is going to play out lengthwise - that's what she said - but I am pretty sure I can handle as much Tim and Eric as they're willing to throw at me. The rest of the world may differ, but they probably don't celebrate Chrimbus either those Scrooges. The film actually hits OnDemand about five weeks before the theaters so the best part is you won't even have to leave your couch. Shrim.
It's been a while since we've had a new Between Two Ferns but then again it's been a while since Zach Galifianakis had something to promote. This weekend sees the release of The Hangover 2 and with summer inching closer Speed Stick clearly wants to get some buzz going, enter buzz maven fellow actor needing to promote a movie Will Ferrell. Aside from the former Saturday Night Live star's atrocious choice of athletic apparel, he makes a pretty good guest even going so far as to get his own sponsor a shout out. In the meantime John Hamm comes in to look for his car keys that he left there a couple of years ago. So yeah, more of the same goodness you've come to expect when a bearded man interviews a guest in the midst of vascular plants of the Pteridophyta family.
Also if you can't get the fat out of your ears and listen, then why am I here?
This has been a pretty big week in trailers and we'll get to them soon enough but first up comes the one that I'm most excited about, the almost all Spanish language Casa de mi Padre. The homage to telenovelas stars Will Ferrell who no habla americana. The amazing trailer promises danger, romance, cigarettes, special effects and slaps so it's going that going for it, which is nice. I actually read an early version of Andrew Steele's script and it was a whole bunch of fun, complete with boom mics in shots and funny quotes galore. The tone established in the trailer has me even more pumped, especially if the lone English speaking character in the trailer is indeed who I think it is as IMDB can't confirm my suspicions that the Border agent is none other than Ron Swanson.

You can never have enough homages to the incredibly awkward David Bowie and Bing Crosby Christmas performance of "Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy", especially when you involve John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell. In this new video from Funny Or Die, the former takes on the role of Crosby while Ferrell does his best Bowie, a mighty fine Bowie at that, especially when he breaks in to "Peace On Earth".
Included below is the equally hilarious original for comparison's sake. Good times.
Feel like testing the waters of the latest Adam McKay directed Will Ferrell starring comedy The Other Guys? Sure you do. Here's four and a half minutes of footage from the film that aired at Comic-Con. Joining Ferrell on screen are Mark Wahlberg, Samuel Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, Rob Riggle, Steve Coogan and the incomprable Michael Keaton. Hot on the heels of his fantastic voice work as Ken in Toy Story 3, it's safe to say Michael Keaton can bump LL Cool J as loud as he wants.
I was able to read an early copy of the script and there's quite a bit of funny to go around, keep on the lookout for a few odd jobs for Keaton's character. As a huge fan of the McKay/Ferrell catalog I'm happy to report that the plot is even reasonably ambitious, and has all the necessary components for a quality buddy cop comedy. And Will Ferrell. The Other Guys hits theatres this Friday. [via filmdrunk]
Doesn't look too shabby but animated Jonah Hill that looks exactly like real life Jonah Hill is a bit creepy. Obviously the cast has the capability to bring the funny so it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Hopefully it's not just a lame ripoff of The Incredibles.
It's no secret that Will Ferrell can be the funniest man on the planet in the right situation. Regardless of what these horrible announcers that can't sell a joke tell you, the man in the video below is not the former Saturday Night Live comedian but is instead a Venezeulan ex-con that goes by the name Rojo Johnson who is making his minor league debut as a member of the Round Rock Express, the Houston Astros' minor league affiliate.
Johnson has a checkered past to say the least as he recently was released from prison after a reptile smuggling incident. You know how they love their reptiles in Venezuela.
Also you know it's not Will Ferrell because he doesn't have a mustache. [via the sporting blog]
It's hard for me to be anything but extremely excited for this regardless of what it looks like so anything that I say here is really sort of irrelevant. The Good Cop Bad Cop scene already had me in stitches and the fact that Michael Keaton is going to be in something I'm excited about seeing again just makes me really happy. Smug Samuel Jackson doesn't hurt either. Good times.
The title pretty much says it all. Will Ferrell, looking an awful lot like the glorious Ashley Schaeffer of Ashley Schaeffer BMW fame, gets in a fight with Craig Robinson. The weapon of choice in this fight is indeed a baseball bat, although it would probably have been a bit sweeter if it was the flying bats type. Of course this is all the backdrop for a really smooth song.
Will Ferrell is nothing if not a very descriptive lyricist.
The new HBO show Funny Or Die Presents will make its debut February 19th at midnight, and from the looks of this little sneak peak it might actually be worth watching, if you are into the whole paying for premium channels thing. More Will Ferrell skits on television will never be a bad thing, even if they are mostly just a collection of videos that already exist on the internet. What can I say, I'm easy to please.
Hopefully we'll get more stuff along the lines of Office Prank, and "silj" than the never funny hand model joke. Also old people are gross and they remind us of death. [via warming glow]
