We've featured plenty of editions of Zach Galifianakis' ongoing talk show Between Two Ferns, including last year's two-part Oscar specials (here and here), which we hope will return when the Academy Awards roll around in 2014. This time the comedian and star of The Hangover franchise is back with a holiday special, sitting down with Samuel L. Jackson (star of the third Die Hard movie ever) and Tobey Maguire of this year's The Great Gatsby. It's exactly as awkwardly hilarious as you'd expect, and there's even a special guest for some holiday music with the band Arcade Fire showing up at the end. Watch it! Here's Zach Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns Holiday Special from Funny or Die: We'd like to point out how awesome that reference to Emmanuel Lewis, star of "Webster" is, if only because he was used in the Oscar special as a mistake while trying to book Daniel Day-Lewis, »

Fans of USA’s Psych have been waiting for the two-hour musical episode, and finally, it’s here (premiering Sunday night at 9 p.m. Et, followed by an instant replay). Dulé Hill, who’s currently on Broadway in the musical revue After Midnight, does get to tap a bit and sing a reggae song — the latter a request he sent to the show’s creator, Steve Franks, who came back with the ditty “Jamaican Inspector Man.” “I love how he did it too,” Hill says, “because he made it a run throughout the musical, so it doesn’t just come out of nowhere. »

Either I am in the minority or my comedic sensibilities are so vastly different from that of the general public I can't even see the folks on the other side because I simply don't get what is so funny about Zach Galifianakis' ignorant shlub schtick in these "Between Two Ferns" videos. Clearly others find some fascination in it considering Part 1 in the latest "Oscar Buzz" installments has been viewed more than 1.1 million times since being released 24 hours ago. In the two most recent videos Galifianakis, playing what may as well be his character from either The Hangover or Due Date, "interviews" Oscar hopefuls including Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Lining Playbook), Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables), Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained), Naomi Watts (The Impossible), Amy Adams (The Master), Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Sally Field (Lincoln), Emmanuel Lewis ("Webster") pretending to be Daniel Day-Lewis and Bradley Cooper (Silver Lining Playbook).

Yesterday, Zach Galifianakis sparred with Jennifer Lawrence and talked toilets with Naomi Watts. Today, he shares part two of his Between Two Ferns: Oscar Edition special, featuring Jessica Chastain (of "0 Dark 30") and Sally Field and Emmanuel Lewis (of "Linkin Park"). And for his efforts, Zach got one of those ferns smashed against his head. So which Oscar nominee was on the other end of the smack down? None other than Bradley Cooper, the future Oscar loser (Zach's words, not ours). »
For the second day in a row, Funny Or Die released a new episode of "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis" featuring some of this year's crop of Oscar nominees. Jessica Chastain, Sally Field and Bradley Cooper show up in this episode to get the full, deadpan Galifianakis treatment.
After ribbing Chastain and Field (he asked Field about gaining weight for "Lincoln": "How'd you do it? Eat Anne Hathaway?"), he was excited to interview the "Lincoln" star himself, before he realized his producers had booked not Daniel Day-Lewis, but Emmanuel Lewis of "Webster."
But the real highlight of the episode was Zach's interview with his "Hangover" co-star Bradley Cooper, who's nominated for "Silver Linings Playbook." After Zach reveals that he wrote an Oscar speech for Cooper, which was actually a concession speech to Daniel Day-Lewis, Cooper let his annoyance with his fellow Wolf Packer get the best of him »
