Funnyman Will Ferrell has had plenty of fun blending sports and comedy with feature films like Semi-Pro, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Blades of Glory. He’s even dabbled in sports on television with a role in the comedy series Eastbound & Down. Now Ferrell is returning to HBO to mess around with America’s pastime.
You may remember hearing back in March that Will Ferrell was going to play Major League Baseball for ten teams, taking all ten positions, in a single day. Now that day will be chronicled in an HBO documentary special from Funny or Die called Ferrell Takes the Field, and the first teaser trailer has just arrived.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably heard about the special Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special that aired this past Sunday night. It was a three and a half hour trip down memory lane, featuring a true dream-team of comedy’s elite.
Among the many highlights came early in the show when a 5-minute video montage was shown of cast members’ first auditions. Not fake auditions, like we’ve seen in the past.

Below, check out the Saturday Night Live auditions video as well a few of the other highlights from the special including Celebrity Jeopardy, Wayne’s World and more. Read More »
