Will Ferrell paid a visit to “Conan” last night in character as everyone’s favorite classy news anchor, Ron Burgundy. Ron is a big fan of Toronto’s crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford — whose got more than enough pussy to eat at home — and couldn’t help but serenade us with an endorsement of Rob’s campaign. I am choking from the laughter. [Team Coco]
Meagan Good and Will Ferrell share an onscreen romance in the upcoming comedy “Anchorman: The Legend Continues.”
In the film’s trailer, funny man Ferrell tries “to break down the barriers of race” by cracking jokes during a humorous dinner table scene with Good character’s Black family.
“I don’t read Jet Magazine, or Jheri Curl Daily,” he says. “I’m breaking down the barriers of race by assimilation. And on that note which one of you convicts with the longest record can pass me the mashed potatoes?”
In the highly-anticipated sequel, Ferrell returns as Ron Burgundy, only this time he works at a 24/7 cable news network. Read more on Hello Beautiful…
“Imma let you finish but … ”
Aubrey Plaza didn’t actually say those words, but last night, onstage at the MTV Movie Awards, it was deja vu: she rushed onstage while Will Ferrell accepted his “Comedic Genius” Award and tried to pull the award out of his hands, before awkwardly stumbling back to her seat.
Publicity stunt for her new movie (which was scrawled across her chest in black sharpie)? Too much Hennessey on the red carpet? If this little incident was staged, I feel like Peter Dinklage — who was standing in the background after presenting Ferrell with his award — would have been involved somehow. And the look on Aubrey’s face when she plopped back in her seat, sans drink, looked kinda “Oh my God, what have I done?” to me.
So, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” was recently moved to an earlier time slot on ABC, but someone apparently forgot to tell “The Knife Guys” — aka Will Ferrell and his sidekick Ryan Gosling — who usually use the studio at 11:35 p.m. to film their QVC infomercial segment. I suppose it should come as no surprise to anyone that Ryan still manages to make safety goggles sexy. Dream man.
Comedian Billy Eichner is super funny. In this clip from his new show “Billy On The Street,” Billy interviews the great Will Ferrell … about Drew Barrymore. After all, aren’t we always worried about what D-Barrs is up to, really? [YouTube]
Pretty much everything Will Ferrell does is funny — even in Swedish. Ferrell did a series of commercials in Sweden for Old Milwaukee, and in one of them, he even speaks the language. In this clip, taped directly off Swedish television, Ferrell says, “This is my boat. This is my woman. And this is my beer. Old Milwaukee. It OK.” [YouTube]
Modern day Will Ferrell seems like a total blast, but college era Will Ferrell appears to have been a stone cold foxy frat boy the likes of which he would one day portray in “Old School.” Call me crazy, but I am into it. I’m don’t know what he and his brodawg are up to in this photo and I’m not sure I want to, but I do know that it takes a macho man to pull off a pair of white briefs, tube socks, and sneakers, especially with a goggle headband. Let’s go back in time and make out. [Drunken Stepfather]
It appears as though celebrities are also being hit hard by the devastating cheating scandal between Kristen Stewart and her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders. Kristen’s longtime boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, is out of the picture, leaving all of the Twilight fans’ lives in shambles –- and Will Ferrell is no exception!
Will visited the set of “Conan” Thursday night to promote his new film, The Campaign, and while Will is usually a barrel of laughs, the comedian was visibly (and hilariously) distraught. Ferrell, not one to ‘hide’ his emotions, explained to Conan what had him so upset. Read more…
Great Odin’s raven, the man who discovered the wheel and built the Eiffel Tower out of metal and brawn is back! Have you missed his musk? I sure have. Break out the scotchy scotch scotch, tune your jazz flutes, and get ready to be taken to Pleasure Town for the second time — Ron Burgundy (aka Will Ferrell) showed up on “Conan” last night and announced that “Anchorman 2″ is happening. Sweet son of a bee sting, I’m psyched. [Team Coco]
