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.
MTV says it was definitely not planned and that Aubrey Plaza was escorted from the show after the incident. What say you? [Entertainment Weekly, MTV News]
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]
