On a sunny May morning in northwest Atlanta, Will Ferrell ambles into the warehouse at 2282 Defoor Hills Road – a windowless, 31,000-square-foot behemoth that has been transformed, thanks to low rents and generous Georgia tax incentives, into a makeshift movie soundstage. The warehouse is typically home to moving companies, but today the tenant has a much higher profile: Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, a.k.a. the most hotly anticipated comedy of the year, and the most buzzed-about sequel in comedy history. Ferrell is starting his workday as the film's hero, »

Woodworker, man’s man, and “Parks and Recreation” star Nick Offerman revealed the key to getting independent films into Sundance on Wednesday’s “Conan.” Offerman, whose “American Ham” concert film was recently shown at the Park City, Utah film festival, described the secret to success in a song, “Pussy and Weed.” The short tune, accompanied by the NBC sitcom actor’s acoustic guitar, included lyrics such as: “The ingredients that make indie films/ the coolest of the breed/are simply weed and pussy/pussy and weed.” See video: Conan O’Brien Responds to Man Claiming to Be His Secret Son »

It's on to greener pastures for Seth Meyers, as the current "Weekend Update" co-anchor and head writer of "Saturday Night Live" readies to depart his post after 13 years to take over "Late Night" on Feb. 24.
But before he does, the funnyman has one final show to see through on Saturday (Feb. 1). In anticipation of Meyers' "SNL" swan song, it's time to take a look back at some of the shining moments from his tenure on the long-running sketch show -- both onscreen and as a writer.
Meyers' first sketch appearance ever came in the show's second post-9/11 show, in a bit that gently mocked the intense displays of patriotism in the following days. The star is, without a doubt, Will Ferrell and his bare behind, but Meyers gets in a few pretty funny reaction shots.

A constellation of nominees express humility, gratitude on the day of the Academy Award nominations.
Amanda Nevill, BFI CEO – “It’s fantastic to see the Academy putting the UK’s vibrant and thriving film industry firmly in the international spotlight. Britain’s world-leading studios and VFX facilities take centre stage in the spectacular Gravity, and the ability of our visionary directors to bring true stories to life with extraordinary effect is seen so vividly in Stephen Frears’ BFI and BBC Films-supported Philomena and Steve McQueen’s Film4-backed 12 Years A Slave.
“With Oscar recognition for on- and off-screen British talent across so many categories, these nominations help remind us that the UK’s film industry is something we can all be hugely proud of. All of these brilliant, talented people are winners in my eyes and I wish them all the luck in the world.”
Thursday (Jan. 9) was a seminal moment in the run of "Parks and Recreation," a night that saw the beloved NBC comedy celebrate its 100th episode.
It was an episode that saw Leslie (Amy Poehler) vacate her seat as Pawnee city council member, Ann (Rashida Jones) and Chris (Rob Lowe) learn the sex of their baby and Andy (Chris Pratt) return home from London. So, yeah, kind of a big night.
But when Zap2it caught up with "Parks" creator Mike Schur at the big 100th episode cake-cutting celebration back in October, we wanted to look to the future. So, we asked him where he imagined Leslie Knope would be should the series make it to 200 episodes.
"In episode 200? Oh my God," he responds with a laugh. "She would be the Secretary General of the United Nations and she'd be, like, in Uzbekistan, talking U.N. peace-keeping troops through how to »
