Earlier this week we heard the surprising news that IFC's forthcoming Funny or Die miniseries 'The Spoils of Babylon' had picked up some impressive talent atop the central Will Ferrell, bringing 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig and 'The Great Gatsby's' Tobey Maguire in to lead. Now, the production has added yet another surprising name in that of former 'Sixth Sense' star Haley Joel Osment!
IFC has continued to make a strong push into original programming, given the continued success of 'Portlandia' and the upcoming premiere of Marc Maron's self-titled 'Maron,' but its latest upcoming miniseries project has some significant star power behind it. Not only will Will Ferrell and Adam McKay produce 'The Spoils of Babylon,' but 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig and 'The Great Gatsby' star Tobey Maguire will play leading roles!

Last night at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, something happened that was surprising even by the usually-unpredictable ceremony's standards. As Will Ferrell accepted his Comedic Genius Award,'Parks and Recreation' star Aubrey Plaza interrupted him, tried to steal away the award, and created her very own controversial Kanye Moment, getting kicked out of the show by MTV producers. Watch the drama unfold after the break!
'Anchorman: The Legend Continues' may be assembling a murderer's row of talent for its comedic ensemble, but there is one name noticeably missing: Tina Fey, of course! Although the 'Saturday Night Live' and '30 Rock' star/genius doesn't appear to be in the cast for the upcoming Will Ferrell comedy epic, it's far too early to place any bets, especially since there's going to be cameos galore.
However, a recent interview has revealed that Fey almost starred in the first 'Anchorman' film instead of Christina Applegate.
Yesterday came news that Harrison Ford had joined the cast of 'Anchorman 2,' which we can only surmise will be the greatest sequel of all-time. Today, we already have the first photos of Ford on set with Papa Burgundy himself, Will Ferrell. Check out the shots from the 'Anchorman 2' set below!
No one was exactly surprised to hear that 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' had been pulled from the ABC schedule, effectively cancelling the series, but the timing of the show's removal may yet have produced a bit of good luck. Series lead Krysten Ritter has reportedly landed the lead role in forthcoming NBC pilot 'Assistance,' to be executive produced by FunnyOrDie founders Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, but will Ritter have better luck this time around? Get the latest on 'Assistance' inside!
We know that times are tough in this economy, but we never could have imagined things would get this bad - especially for a guy like Will Ferrell. The comedian appears to have fallen on a big old rough patch, as he was spotted last night working security for the L.A. Lakers.
Of course, it ended up being quite funny, because Will was at his stone-faced best.
