So, a while back, people started talking about Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell doing a Lifetime movie together, but then Will Ferrell put the kabosh on the whole thing and released a statement saying the movie wasn’t happening because it was supposed to be a secret and we ruined it by finding out about it. Of course, it actually IS happening, and it’s called A Deadly Adoption and from the short teaser trailer that’s now been released, it looks INSANE.
Just because you’re probably as confused as I am after watching it, I should confirm that this is indeed tongue-in-cheek. It’s supposed to be a parody of a stereotypical Lifetime movie and it was made just in time for the network’s 25th anniversary. It’ll air on June 20, and I don’t know about you, but this is so weird, I have to watch.
Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell did a movie together, so to promote it, they stopped by Jimmy Fallon‘s show to do a little lip syncing and Jimmy joined in. What resulted was one of the best bits the show has done in recent memory. I’ll just leave this here without comment:
Oh, Will Ferrell, that rapscallion! He’s always up to something, isn’t he? He showed up during intermission at the Los Angeles Lakers vs. New Orleans Pelicans game at the Smoothie King Center (LOL IS THAT A REAL PLACE???) to take a half-court shot, but instead he actually smashed one of the cheerleaders in the face with the ball. Oopsies!
Of course, this was all planned and no one was hurt – it was actually a scene for his new movie, Daddy’s Home. Obviously. After the “incident”, security dragged him out and that was it, fade to black. Sounds like a fun evening out, I guess?
Will Ferrell went on Watch What Happens Live and host Andy Cohen asked him, “When was the last time you felt shame?” Mr. Ferrell’s answer involved none other than Mr. Harrison Ford. Here’s how he accidentally dissed the legend. Via E Online:
Last time I really felt shame was when, my first day of filming Anchorman 2. Harrison Ford worked that day and at the end of the day he asked me to go to dinner by just saying, ‘Dinner?’ And I said, ‘No, I have some in my trailer,’ thinking he was just literally asking me if I had some dinner, and I realize, ‘Oh no. He just asked me out to dinner,’ and not only did I say no, in his mind it was like, ‘No way in hell.’
Oh my God, I would die. I would run back to Harrison Ford and throw myself at his feet and explain that it was all a big misunderstanding. Also, I could totally see myself doing what Ferrell did. I do shit like that all the time.
What would YOU have done? Would you have tried to explain, or just let it go?
Dita Von Teese, world’s most glamorous EVERYTHING.
Welcome again to Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week in which we point out who looked great, bad, and most WTF. Last week Amanda Seyfried won my pick for best dressed. Who will get it this week? Did Christina Applegate do something to her lips/face or is it just unfortunate makeup? And how many wacky outfits did we post of Gaga‘s?
Remember to have your picks ready at the end for the BEST, WORST, and most WTF outfits/looks.
This is sort of obligatory posting at this point. On Saturday Night Live this week, Paul Rudd was hosting with One Direction serving as musical guest and since Paul is promoting Anchorman 2 at the moment, the rest of the cast – including Will Ferrell – joined him at one point and then One Direction joined them and they all sang ‘Afternoon Delight’ together.
It was a nice little stunt, sure, and I bet there were people who ate it up, but I just found it all… a little boring and not at all exciting like they hoped it’d be. It certainly didn’t make me want to see the movie any more than I did before (which, I’ll probably see it when it’s out to rent/download, because I did love the first one), but who knows. Maybe all the One Direction fans will be flocking to the theatres now.
Kristen Wiig is hilarious and SNL has been a total shitfest since she left (with the only bright moments being courtesy of Bobby Moynihan’s Drunk Uncle and Kate McKinnon’s everything), but of course it was time for her to head to greener pastures, and this is what we’ve got: Will Ferrell‘s new mini-series, The Spoils of Babylon.
The series is a spoof of melodramatic series like The Thorn Birds and follows a rich family, the Morehouses. Kristen Wiig is the daughter of an oil magnate who is fighting feelings for her adopted brother, played by Tobey Maguire. LOL, what? It looks really weird, but also really hilarious, don’t you think?
The Spoils of Babylon will premiere on IFC on January 9.
