Wolf Blitzer: 'Ron Burgundy Tried to Poison Me'

Originally posted 12/10/2013 08:00AM



Let's face it, by mid-2014 (assuming Anchorman 2 does well enough), Ron Burgundy will likely be an actual news anchor, and this video will seem less funny in retrospect as Will Ferrell disappears from reality, subsumed by his most hirsute creation.

Until then, though, it's hilarious. Funny or Die gathered Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer and Chris Cuomo (all of whom apparently have history with Ron) to discuss Burgundy's journalistic abilities, integrity and lack thereof.

Will Ferrell has been making the rounds as his Anchorman character Ron Burgundy in preparation for the 2004 film's hotly-anticipated sequel coming out in December.

He appeared in a series of ads for the Dodge Durango, and most recently, co-anchored an edition of Bismarck, N.D.'s KXMB's broadcast.

Ferrell/Burgundy brought all his signature moves, slowly leaning into co-anchor's Amber Schatz's screen, before warning her that he's married, so "Don't get any ideas." He casually reaches into sportscaster Jon Schaeffer's frame and pats him on the shoulder mid-report at one point as well.

Justin Timberlake Doesn't Think He's Cool

Originally posted 11/12/2013 08:00AM

While he seems like the very embodiment of "cool," Justin Timberlake doesn't use that word to describe himself.

"Listen, I'm not cool," the singer, dancer and actor says in the "Men of The Year" issue of GQ. "Being cool is about keeping your blood pressure steady. So no. Don't be cool. Be passionate. Be dedicated. Be tenacious. Be uncompromising. Be pissed. Be happy. Be sad."

Timberlake, 32, goes on to explain that not being "cool," often means doing the opposite of what's expected of him, like playing a high-stakes gambler in Runner Runner alongside Ben Affleck or appearing in sketches on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon every night for Timberweek.

Dish & Tell: What Tori Spelling, Corey Feldman and More Revealed in Their Memoirs

If you have nothing nice to say … say it in print? It's probably not the best way to air your grievances, but it seems to be the motto among celebrities penning memoirs of late.

On Friday, word leaked of Tori Spelling's dis at Katie Holmes in her forthcoming book Spelling It Like It Is, in which she describes the former Mrs. Cruise as "plastic."

"As I sat waiting outside his music room, I heard his prior appointment working with him in the other room. It was some actress singing horribly off-key," Spelling writes of bumping into Holmes during a visit to her vocal coach. "I heard him say good-bye and then the actress walked out of the room. It was Katie Holmes."

Anchorman 2 Trailer Released: Watch It Now

Originally posted 06/19/2013 11:15AM

Film's most acerbic, politically incorrect broadcaster, Ron Burgundy, is back!

The new trailer for Anchorman 2 – The Legend Continues was released Wednesday, showing the twisted and hapless Burgundy, played by Will Ferrell, now under intense news pressure, working for a 24-7 cable news network in New York City, far from his comfort zone and the '70s wild life of his home base in San Diego.

Co-anchor Veronica Corningstone, now his wife, makes a return with Christina Applegate once again in the supporting role. Other journalists join Burgundy on his Big Apple adventure. Playing reporters are Steve Carell, David Koechner and Paul Rudd.

Parks and Recreation actress Aubrey Plaza wanted all to notice her two eye-catching accessories at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards. They were a cocktail, and the words "#The To Do List" scrawled on her chest in what appeared to be black eyeliner.

Well, everyone did notice. And it got the actress kicked out of the ceremony after she crashed Will Ferrell's acceptance speech for Comedic Genius.

Mark Wahlberg Braces for Rebel Wilson's Barbs at MTV Movie Awards

Originally posted 04/14/2013 10:30AM

By the time host Rebel Wilson is done with everybody Mark Wahlberg expects to laugh, be surprised – and maybe be a little hurt – at this weekend's MTV Movie Awards.

"I think she may insult some people, but she is very, very funny," Wahlberg, 41, tells PEOPLE at Thursday night's Miami premiere of his movie Pain & Gain, presented by Grey Goose.

The actor certainly seems poised for a Wilson barb. He's nominated for best duo for being paired with a computer-animated bear voiced (profanely) by Seth MacFarlane in Ted. Wahlberg's up against a pal, Will Ferrell, nominated with Zach Galifianakis for The Campaign.
