It must be uncomfortable as hell underneath all that makeup, but actor Dirk Rogers isn’t displaying any hints of annoyance. He was fooling around, asking what’s up and making wildly comical gestures.
It was just another day at the office on the horror movie Countdown, a movie about an app that lets you know the time you’ll kick the bucket.

Last night, Will Ferrell appeared in character as Anchorman character Ron Burgundy on five different late night talk shows to do stand-up comedy and stick around for an interview with the host. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Late Late Show with James Corden and Conan all brought in Ron Burgundy to tell some jokes and have some of the funniest interviews these guys have ever done. All of this seems to be a promotional push for the second season of The Ron Burgundy Podcast on iHeartRadio, but we’re not going to complain just because this is an extended advertisement.

Will Ferrell is about to star in another sports movie, but this one will be a far cry from the goofy antics of Semi-Pro, Talladega Nights, or Blades of Glory.
Ferrell will star in American Huckster, an adaptation of a 2016 book about Chuck Blazer, a middle-class guy who managed to con his way to the upper echelons of FIFA, the professional soccer organization, and scam them out of millions of dollars. Leslye Headland, the co-creator, writer, and director of Netflix’s fantastic new series Russian Doll, is on board to direct. Read More »

There was a time when Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues was one of the most anticipated sequels. Of course, that meant it was never going to live up to the hype, and it was going to have a hard time living up to the original Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

But it’s probably for the best that when Will Ferrell returns as Ron Burgundy returns in 2019, it’s not for a feature film sequel, but a podcast instead. Read More »
