Will Ferrell And John C. Reilly
Comedians Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are forging ahead with plans to record a rap album after landing a "big time producer" to collaborate with on the project.

The Step Brothers co-stars have previously toyed with the idea of releasing a joint music project and entertained fans with their rapping skills on spoof songs like 2008's Boats 'N Hoes, even recording a video and posting it on

But the plans have now been put into motion, according to Step Brothers director Adam McKay - and they're hoping to entice hip-hop star Mos Def to join them on a track.

Judd Apatow: His Career And Latest 'Funny People'

July 30th, 2009 10:38am EDT
Judd Apatow
This Friday marks the theatrical release of "Funny People," the Judd Apatow dramedy starring Adam Sandler as a terminally ill stand-up comedian. As the buzz around this film has grown, fans and critics alike have wondered if Apatow, who never met a penis joke he didn't like, was making a huge mistake by veering into "serious" territory. Pretty odd, considering that one of Apatow's most loved and respected works was the TV series, "Freaks and Geeks," a show that beautifully walked the line between hilarity and heartbreaking realism.

Although it may seem like he came from out of nowhere to...

A Chat With Adam Scott of Starz New Series 'Party Down'

Adam Scott
It usually takes awhile for for me to warm up to any new series; this was not the case with Party Down -- premiering tonight (Friday) on Starz -- which is perhaps the funniest new show I've seen this season.

Adam Scott (Step Brothers, Tell Me You Love Me) plays Henry, an out-of-work actor who has to return to his old job of bartending for a catering service. Adam talked about the new series, what it was like working with Will Ferrell in Step Brothers and why so many college age students watched his old show, Boy Meets World.

Spotlight On Kathryn Hahn

March 5th, 2009 12:22pm EST
Kathryn Hahn
There are those types of actors in Hollywood who have recognizable faces but their names seem to slip your mind. Remember when Philip Seymour Hoffman and Don Cheadle were those types of elusive actors? They were in every genre of movie and their face was recognizable, but you drew a blank on their names. Now Philip is an Oscar winner and Don is an Oscar nominee. Kathryn Hahn shouldn't be one of those actors anymore! Drill her face AND name into your head - Kathryn Hahn.

Although Kathryn tends to gravitate towards comedic roles, she has a background in Broadway and television and made ...

'Eastbound And Down' Feels Too Much Like Another Ferrell-McKay Movie

February 16th, 2009 3:04pm EST
Eastbound And Down
The plot for Eastbound And Down reads like the next Will Ferrell/Adam McKay comedy: a superstar becomes too big for his britches, then crashes and burns. His only hope is to become a better person and get back to his winning ways.

The busted superstar in this case is Kenny Powers (played by Danny McBride), a power pitching closer that got the last out of the World Series at the age of 19 for Atlanta – they didn’t spring for any MLB licenses, so it's just "Atlanta." He signs a multi-year contract, and soon after trashes Atlanta when they begin to lose, so it's off to the only team that...

Chris Cornell & M. Night Shyamalan
These actors and artists don't have much in common besides looks. But who gets the shit-end of the stick? Check out our photo slideshow of celebrities that look alike and which one has an advantage over the other.

Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day)

Giovanni Ribisi

Before he started wearing guy-liner, Armstrong shared that dopey confused look with Ribisi. We suspected these two were the same person when we saw The Other Sister, but after hearing Ribisi's first line, we knew it was for real. They even sound the same!

Advantage: Ribisi because he's acting

John C. Reilly's Sex Scene Fears

John C. Reilly
Actor John C. Reilly dreads filming sex scenes - because he worries he will become aroused by his female co-stars.

The Step Brothers star insists his body responds favorably while he is in bed with an actress, despite the many distractions on set.

He says, "It's always really uncomfortable to have to swap spit with someone and rub bodies. People (actors) always say, 'In a lovemaking scene, sex is the furthest thing from your mind because you're worried about the crew and lighting'. Bulls**t! If you lie naked against someone of the opposite sex, things happen. The plumbing depart...

Will Ferrell's Stage Fright

July 21st, 2008 3:18pm EDT
Will Ferrell
Comedy star Will Ferrell suffered a terrifying attack of stage-fright on the set of new movie Step Brothers, when he was asked to sing opera in front of 500 extras.

The Anchorman star has stripped nearly naked on screen countless times, but singing on stage left him frozen to the spot. Ferrell explains, "That was one of the hardest things. I sang opera in front of 500 extras and I was so nervous that day. I can do just about anything in front of a camera except try to legitimately sing an opera piece."

"I would, actually (run past the extras naked). That would be so much easier....

You may not know his name, but he's the guy who did "The 40-Year-Old Virgin." Ever since releasing his breakthrough film starring Steve Carell as the awkward celibate, Judd Apatow has been cranking out movies like nobody's business. The key is how many roles he can actively fill for that fancy silver screen - Apatow writes, directs, and produces. He's a triple-threat that's got him walking all over Hollywood.

In 2007, he wrote two screenplays (Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and Knocked Up), directed one hit ("Knocked Up"), and produced three films ("Walk Hard," "Knocked Up," and Super...

" We liked the idea of just doing comedy for comedy's sake and having a place for our friends to do it too.
