Happy Birthday Will Ferrell! Celebrate The Comedian's 51st Trip Around the Sun By Voting for His Funniest Role of All Time
Happy birthday Will Ferrell! The funny guy turns 51 years old today and lucky for us his comedic chops just keep getting more and more funny as the years go by. Fans of Ferrell know the Irvine, California native as a father of three, husband, comedian and above all else an actor who continually makes them laugh at the box office. Over the past 20 plus years, The House actor has been in more movies than we can count (almost all of which are comedies) and numerous TV series including Saturday Night Live where he got his big comedy break. Even though we have a few favorite Ferrell characters from SNL like George W. Bush or all the times he channeled his inner cheerleader as half of the...

Christina Applegate to lead Netflix dark comedy series Dead to Me

Deadline is reporting that Christina Applegate is set to headline Netflix’s half-hour dark comedy series Dead to Me, which has been described as “a comedic Big Little Lies“.

Scripted by Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls), the series explores “a powerful friendship that blossoms between a tightly wound widow and a free spirit with a shocking secret” and sees Applegate as Jen, “a poised and put-together woman with a dark sense of humor and an anger problem that she doesn’t necessarily want to deal with.”

Dead to Me marks the first TV role for Applegate in six years, and the actress – who first found fame on the small screen in the classic 80s U.S. sitcom Married… with Children – will also serve as executive producer alongside Anchorman’s Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.

2018 Emmy nominations slugfest: Battling it out over our guest acting predictions for comedy and drama [Watch]

2018 Emmy nominations slugfest: Battling it out over our guest acting predictions for comedy and drama [Watch]
“I don’t know what year ‘Will & Grace’ thinks it is,” says Gold Derby contributor Amanda Spears when chatting about the Emmy race for Best Comedy Guest Actress. The NBC revival submitted eight performers for consideration in the category, including Vanessa Bayer, Blythe Danner, Minnie Driver, Jennifer Lopez, Jane Lynch, and Molly Shannon. “That’s too many people,” she adds. “This is not 1999.” The TV landscape is much more crowded in 2018, so Spears thinks having too many guests submitted “might have cost them a spot” altogether due to vote-splitting. Spears recently joined fellow contributors Riley Chow, Zach Laws, and Tom O’Brien to discuss the guest acting contenders for both comedy and drama. Watch the entire video above.

Currently the Comedy Guest Actress category looks like a battle between “Saturday Night Live” hosts. Tina Fey is in first place on our racetrack with odds of 7/2, and Tiffany Haddish, is in second with 4/1 odds.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s Movies, Ranked From Worst to Best (Photos)

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s Movies, Ranked From Worst to Best (Photos)
Dwayne Johnson is one the last great movie stars. As a wrestler, he built a career on physical prowess and dynamic charisma, and those qualities translated neatly into a successful acting career. Whether he’s kicking butt, tickling funny bones or (frequently) both, Dwayne Johnson has the uncanny ability to make almost every movie better, just by showing up for work. And he works hard. Let’s take a look at the impressively prolific career of the beloved movie star and rank his films from best to worst.

(Note: The following films are ranked based on their quality and on their Dwayne Johnson-ness. Films in which he only has a minor role will mostly rank low, and films in which he has little more than a cameo will receive unranked honorable mentions — and even then only if they are noteworthy.)

Honorable Mention: “The Mummy Returns” (2001)

Ralph Fiennes to take the lead in Terry Gilliam’s Mr Vertigo

The Grand Budapest Hotel’s Ralph Fiennes has landed himself the lead role in Terry Gilliam’s adaptation of Paul Auster’s, Mr Vertigo.

Auster’s novel is another project in which Gilliam has spent a number of years trying to get off the ground. Gilliam announced in 2011 he would be working on adapting the book for the big screen. Fiennes was also his number one choice for the role, but with the studios didn’t deem Fiennes a bankable enough name to head up the movie. Looks like Gilliam finally got his way on this one.

Set in the late 1920s, the action follows Walter Claireborne Rawley – a Saint Louis orphan taught to walk on air by mysterious Hungarian Jew, Master Yehudi. Joining a vaudeville act with two others, they travel through mythic Americana and encounter sinners, thieves, clan members and the mob along the way.

Will Ferrell’s Roger Ebert Movie Is Officially Dead: ‘Russ & Roger’ Producer Explains the Reason Why

Will Ferrell’s Roger Ebert Movie Is Officially Dead: ‘Russ & Roger’ Producer Explains the Reason Why
Will Ferrell has been attached to “Russ & Roger Go Beyond” since August 2014, but after years of development the project is no longer moving forward. Producer David Permut told Market Watch (via /Film) that a group decision was made between the cast and crew not to keep the project going given the film’s subject matter not being appropriate in the era of #MeToo and Time’s Up anti-harassment movements.

Russ & Roger Go Beyond,” which was set to be directed by “Once” and “Sing Street” filmmaker John Carney, was set to star Josh Gad as film critic Roger Ebert and Ferrell as controversial film director Russ Meyer. The two collaborated on the infamous 1970’s melodrama “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls,” and the movie was to serve as a comical behind-the-scenes look at the film’s production. Because Meyer was a sexploitation filmmaker, the “Russ & Roger” team felt now was

Sam Rockwell on Playing a Nazi in Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’ and the Bob Fosse Biopic He’s Dreaming of Making

Sam Rockwell on Playing a Nazi in Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’ and the Bob Fosse Biopic He’s Dreaming of Making
Sam Rockwell isn’t slowing down. A few months after winning every award under the sun for his performance in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” the actor is back in theaters with another distinctly American film: “Woman Walks Ahead,” which required him to saddle up as a cowboy and learn the Lakota language alongside Jessica Chastain. The recent Oscar winner isn’t stateside for the release of Susanna White’s 1890’s period piece about Sitting Bull and the woman who traveled across the country to paint his portrait, however — he’s in Prague, where production on “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” and “Thor: Ragnarok” director Taika Waiti’s outrageous-sounding “Jojo Rabbit” is underway.

“It is the greatest script I’ve read in so long,” Rockwell said over the phone of the dark comedy that Waititi hopes will “piss off a lot of racists.” Asked about his character, Captain Klenzendorf, the actor

Will Ferrell & Josh Gad Film ‘Russ & Roger Go Beyond’ Fell Apart Due To Harvey Weinstein & #MeToo

For almost a year now, we’ve been reporting about how the #MeToo movement has been affecting Hollywood.

Such is the case with producer David Permut and his film “Russ & Roger Go Beyond.”

Permut, who has previously produced films such as “Hacksaw Ridge” and “Face/Off,” has been working to bring ‘Russ & Roger’ to the big screen for almost a decade.

25 Wild Facts About Cast Of The Office

Starting on the BBC back in 2001, The Office made an icon out of Rick Gervais as the iconic David Brent. With that iconic theme tune, Gervais’ cringe-worthy performance kickstarted everyone’s obsession with the surprisingly hilarious show about a dull office. Although the British series only ran for two seasons and two Christmas specials, it became a cult favorite.

In 2005, the format jumped over to America and became a runaway success far beyond the UK version. This time, it was Steve Carell as the Brent-inspired Michael Scott. However, the big pull of The Office was never the humdrum backdrop of the Wernham Hogg Paper Company or Dunder Mifflin, it was the brilliant characters themselves.

Proving that selling paper was anything but boring, both shows had all-star talent that included Martin Freeman, John Krasinski, Mindy Kaling, Will Ferrell, Kathy Bates, and James Spader, along with rising talent like Ed Helms, Rashida Jones,
