At the 2013 Golden Globes, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig presented the award for Best Actress, Musical or Comedy and were intent on bringing some of their own laughs to the show. Not content to read the scripted banter off the TelePrompTer, the two came up with their own bit that left everyone cracking up ... except Tommy Lee Jones, that is.
Sadly, outside of the occasional Old Milwaukee commercial, occasional 'SNL' appearance, or maybe even the latest episode of 'Bitch Hunter,' we're unlikely to see Will Ferrell take any regular presence on the small screen again. That's okay though, considering the imminent arrival of 'Anchorman 2' with director Adam McKay, and an upcoming NBC series with both behind the camera! And hey, why not throw in a little Anne Heche for good measure? Who's ready for 'Bad Judge?'
Without question, gymnast Gabby Douglas is the breakout US star of the Olympic Games, which are drawing to a close this weekend. But the American athlete most want to poke fun at – for assorted reasons – appears to be swimmer Ryan Lochte. Maybe it’s his confidence (bordering on arrogance)? Maybe it’s because he’s Michael Phelps’ natural rival? No matter the reason, folks like to see Lochte on the receiving end of a joke, including good 'ole Patrick Stewart.
Will Rogers is said to have said that "a fool and his money are soon elected." That was so 20th century. Were he around today he'd know to say "a fool and SOMEONE ELSE'S money are soon elected."
Perfectly timed for this November's battle at the ballot box, 'The Campaign' is a much needed jaundiced look at all that is wrong with the current brand of American democracy. It is the third fast-paced film about modern politics, after 'Recount' and 'Game Change,' from director Jay Roach. When the YouTube mashup artists get their hands on all the material, there will be many stretches where it will be impossible to tell which of the three films is fictional.
