This belated sequel sags despite the gags but will still be the best news Ron Burgundy's fans have had for a decade
Nearly a decade on from the original Anchorman film, affection for Will Ferrell's hapless newscaster Ron Burgundy has reached thermonuclear levels; it's hardly surprising, therefore, that this belated sequel is arriving on a wave of Burgundy-mania, where every marketing opportunity (ice-cream, trailer release, talk-show appearance, book tie-in) is treated as a major news event. In this Burgundy has its equivalent in the UK in Alan Partridge – as well as, of course, using its mocking take on broadcast-industry second-raters as a vehicle for broader social satire.
Well, lovers of Ron Burgundy – and I don't mean the kind that revs his engines – will find a lot to enjoy here. The Legend Continues picks up several years later with Burgundy co-anchoring with wife Veronica (Christina Applegate); a vacancy on the »

General consensus is that celebrities have everything they could ever want or need … except, it turns out, a ride. Alongside guests Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, stars of the new movie Ride Along, Conan O'Brien set out to share a drive with an unsuspecting stranger thanks to the mobile app Lyft, which allows users to signal for a driver to pick them up. After standing around a corner for a bit, which Hart joked was unsafe and made it seem as if the three were "selling a--," the trio were picked up by a man named Anthony. For the next nine minutes, »

The former Buzzcocks host has spent much of the year peddling his brand of angst-ridden Britishness in the Us. And his knack for mining uncomfortable truths has seen him compared to Woody Allen – but does he really want to make it big stateside?
There is a brilliantly awkward moment on the Us talkshow The View, clipped on YouTube, where Simon Amstell tries to charm Joy Behar, the unconvinced 70-something host, with a bit from his show Numb. Amstell is explaining how conversation with his mum is always secondary to the fact that "I came out of her vagina". And that because she came out of Grandma's vagina and so on, it makes that relationship harder, too. "It's like a Russian doll of awkwardness," he tells her. Behar finally laughs and tells him he's funny. "So," he touches her arm. "Have I broken America yet?"
Which, his staged eagerness aside, is »

When nominations for the 71st annual Golden Globes are announced Dec. 12 at 8 a.m. Et, we could hear some surprises from the occasionally unpredictable Hollywood Foreign Press. With that in mind, here are the nominees we’d welcome entering — or re-entering — the race.
Best Television Series — Drama: Broadcast TV has been shut out of this category for the last two years, but season 5 of CBS’ The Good Wife is so good, it deserves to break that streak. (Though it will be interesting to see if it can with both Netflix’s House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black in the mix, »

In its nearly decade-long run, Seinfeld introduced plenty of hilariously bad movie titles—from the Daylight-inspired Chunnel to actual Larry David screenplay Prognosis Negative—but none so frequently as Rochelle, Rochelle, the fictional film described (repeatedly) as “a young girl’s strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk.” So you can forgive New Yorkers for getting a little (okay, a lot) excited this week when posters for the movie famously “about life, love, and becoming a woman” showed up outside the real-life United Artists Theatre on the Upper East Side. »

Football: World Cup 2014 Draw
Gary Lineker presents live coverage of the draw for Brazil 2014, held at the swanky Costa do Sauípe in the state of Bahia. If previous Fifa-affiliated events in the country are any guide, widespread protests are likely to provide the backdrop, as Brazilian citizens make their ire known over political corruption and excessive spending on the tournament. Conversation around the draw itself is likely to focus on unseeded England's potential opponents: could a Group of Death be on the cards? Gwilym Mumford

This story first appeared in the Dec. 13 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Santiago Arana, The Agency Arana is only 33, but he is fast-tracking to the top of the Westside real estate market. This year, he sold the highest per-foot price ever in Pacific Palisades with a $15.35 million newly constructed home and scored Larry David's Palisades listing. In October, the Bolivia-born Arana joined the ranks of high-flying brokerage The Agency as principal to open all of its future offices west of the 405.

Following on from six triumphant television series, it seemed that the natural progression for Mikkel Nørgaard’s popular Danish comedy show Klown, was to become a hit of the big screen – and expand beyond Scandinavia and reach out to audiences across the world. Now, with a theatrical release in the UK impending, we finally have the opportunity to experience the wonders of this brilliantly outlandish and charmingly offensive creation.
When liability Frank (Frank Hvam) discovers his girlfriend Mia (Mia Lyhne) is carrying his child, he knows that he has one hell of a task on his hands to convince her that he is fit for parenthood. However when their house is broken into, and he offers little protection for her 12-year-old nephew Bo (Marcuz Jess Petersen), who they’re looking after, Frank needs to do something really special to prove his worth as a father. So he makes a rash »

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s daughter and great niece of the late President John F. Kennedy Jr., Kyra, made her formal debut at the Bal Des Débutantes 2013 in Paris over the weekend. The 18-year-old aspiring fashion designer looked radiant Saturday in a blue Christian Dior dress. "It's my first time wearing haute couture so that's really exciting, and I'm obsessed by the color," Kyra told the Afp. Kennedy was one of 20 handpicked debutantes to attend the high-society ball. British royal Lady Amelia Windsor and Romy David, daughter of Seinfeld creator Larry David also made the list. Kennedy's father and his girlfriend, »

I’ll start off by saying that I’m simply not that big of a DC fan. Marvel is much more my style. However, one medium where DC rules the roost is in the medium of television. Wonder Woman, Batman (now a hilarious comic by the name of Batman ’66), Lois And Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman, and most prominently, Smallville – the show which made Chloe Sullivan and Whitney Fordman an official part of the Superman lore – have all brought the publisher’s heroes to the small screen in appropriately grand fashion.
The show actually broke the record (albeit by five episodes) for the longest consecutively running sci-fi television series of all time. Not the proudest title to hold, but no matter what, 218 episodes and 10 seasons is an impressive feat for something that is pretty much Dawson’s Creek with superheroes.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" has an on-going segment called "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets" and it's always both hilarious and cringe-worthy -- we cannot believe some of the stuff people write on Twitter.
The fifth installment included these high (low?) lights:
"Your face is so stupid I hate you @johnkrasinski.""@chrisodonnell has a potato face. He does. #potatoface.""I remember when the words '@sharonstone is on television' brought me joy, instead of, 'I hate that b****.""@Nick_Offerman's hands seem crazy small compared to his head.""If I had to choose between f***ing a pie or @JasonBiggs I'd choose the pie. That dude has a dirty d***.""What in the f*** is up with Amy Poehler's face? B**** looks like she survived a nuclear blast.""Great acting Dennis Quaid, you old irrelevant pig.""Aaron Paul has a small d***.""Really, Mark Ruffalo? That's the face you're going with? God this movie's gonna suck. »
The guys from The League might just be the least friendly group of friends on TV. They lie, berate, cheat, and manipulate; they also frequently nail each other in the scrotum. The most humorously abominable member of the gang is Nick Kroll’s foul-mouthed attorney Rodney Ruxin, whose perennial dickishness has earned him a place beside Larry David, Dennis Reynolds, and Eric Cartman in the pantheon of great TV assholes. Trash-talking is his martial art, jokes involving bodily fluid are his nunchucks, and friends are nothing more than heads in need of thwacking. Just in time for The League’s two-part season-five finale tonight on Fxx, Vulture presents a chronological run-through of Ruxin’s many insults. Feel free to try them on your friends at home.1. Ruxin (to the gang): “Catch you on the rebound, frumpkins.” 2. Ruxin (to the gang): “Hello, you collection of shit sippers.” 3. Ruxin (to Pete): “Quick question, »

Curb Your Enthusiasm creator Larry David made news this week thanks to his “peak Larry David” face, on display at the New York Knicks game. It’s understandable–a fast-paced NBA match-up between top teams can elicit a wide range of feelings from anyone in the building. And when our favorite stars have the good fortune of sitting courtside, their emotional output never goes undocumented.
It’s clear NBA games are the place to be: Rihanna makes the arena rounds in whatever city she’s touched down in that morning, while lifelong Lakers fan Jack Nicholson has withstood years of season ticket turnover–and newbies encroaching on his turf. Whatever their motive for being there, behold the celebs who give the best face on the court (and what we presume they’re feeling at the time).

HBO continues to expand its horizons beyond the usual television fare while clinging to a previously successful formula. According to Deadline, the premium cable network has ordered a pilot for Mr. Director, from writer/director Salim Akil, “envisioned as being in the vein of Larry David’s documentary-style Curb Your Enthusiasm but with the backdrop of Black Hollywood,” because Larry David’s series didn’t really have much crossover appeal. Akil has most frequently been the showrunner and resident director for the Bet series The Game, a spinoff from Upn’s Girlfriends, both of which were created by Akil's »
