The Office "Kids" Around

The Office's John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer

This week's episode of The Office [Thursdays at 9:30 pm/ET on NBC] is called "Take Your Daughter to Work Day," and it is written by the hot and talented Mindy Kaling (who also plays Kelly on the show). Every few weeks we have a scene that knocks me on the floor laughing while we shoot, and this was one of those weeks. I haven't seen the final product so I'm not sure what made it in and what didn't. And who knows if the comedy translated on screen or if it was just one of those days where we were slaphappy and giggling at everything. But this was a fun episode to shoot. In this episode the Dunder-Mifflin employees bring their daughters to work for the day. Stanley brings his hot teenage daughter who starts crushin' on R read more

Just read your review of the ...

Question: Just read your review of the Oscars and thought it a bit harsh. This is, after all, an awards show, with the main event being the handing out of awards. Certainly the singing performances, funny montages and humorous turns by Jon Stewart, Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell and Steve Carell were attempts to liven up the evening. Some succeeded, some failed. But what would you recommend instead? Although I agree with you that there are many ways to reduce the lengthy event, that won't automatically make it any more interesting. So what will? Or do you concede that the Oscars are just one of those events that viewers and critics alike will always find fault with, no matter what happens or who hosts? Answer: Gee, a critic being harsh? How did that happen? You're right, though. I've been reviewing Oscar shows since maybe the late '80s, and I can probably count on one hand the number of times I've had a mostly positive impression (usually the years with Billy Crystal at the helm). As I ... read more

The 78th Annual Academy Awards...

Jon Stewart

The 78th Annual Academy Awards 8:01: The opening scene just demonstrates why we love Jon Stewart: No one does self-deprecation so funny. Not even George Clooney. I think my dog would look great in a Steve Martin wig. 8:05: At first, the Hollywood royalty aren't laughing quite as hard as I am at Jon's jokes — especially not at the one about the suffering caused by movie piracy. But nothing brings people together like a Bjork joke. (She was trying on her gown and Cheney shot her!) And then the gay Western montage. Not even Stewart knows how to follow up that hilarity, so I'm not even gonna try. Brilliant. 8:16: Nicole Kidman's weird intro for the best-supporting-actor nominees has me thinking right away that Clooney will win. And then he does; self-deprecation keeps working wonders. "So I'm not winning director." The music starts after about 10 sec read more


Not to be outshined by the Lost boy, The Office's Jenna Fischer (aka Pam — and TVGuide.com's awesome blogger) is joining Will Ferrell, Jon Heder, Amy Poehler and Will Arnett in Blades of Glory, a comedy about pairs-figure-skating rivals, while Veronica Mars herself, Kristen Bell, is in final talks to play a Star Wars geek in Fanboys, a dramedy that starts shooting in late February. read more

Surface Wow, not a good day to...

SurfaceWow, not a good day to be an eerily attractive clone. You wake up in the morning, have a nice cup of coffee at your desk, and the next thing you know, you're hogtied with duct tape and crammed into the trunk of a Dodge Stratus. (And a big shout-out to Will Ferrell for making that the funniest car name in automotive history. "Don't talk about my Dodge Stratus!") It's enough to make a guy put a bullet in his own brain. No, wait, scratch that — it's enough to make a guy sit real still for a momentary misdirect before letting a hysterical Dr. Laura go. Meanwhile, Crazy-Eyed Rich gets busted in the Great Big Cryo-Lab of Doom, and Miles nearly gets himself tarred and feathered by an angry mob of townsfolk. Oh, sure, you electrocute one bully in the schoolyard and read more

Bones One of my favorite things...

BonesOne of my favorite things about Bones is how oblivious she is to the pop-culture world, like when Angela expressed her interest in dating Colin Farrell, and Bones tried to contribute, "I know him; he's funny." Angela shook her head and said, "That's Will Ferrell." I love that, despite their marked differences, Angela and Bones can be best friends, even when Ange is disgruntled with her job — which she so clearly is in this rerun. "I used to draw naked guys, and now I draw dead guys." Ange isn't the only one unhappy at work: Hodgins loves what he does but doesn't want anyone to know that his family is a major donor to the museum. "What I want in life is to come in here and sift through slime and bugs, but my family is one of those who secretly rule the world." Too bad we didn read more


The Ellen DeGeneres Show enjoyed its best ratings week ever the week ending Dec. 18, due in large part to a visit from The Producers stars Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick and Will Ferrell. The show drew more than five million viewers, the talker's largest single-day audience in two and a half years on the air — which will quite possibly be more people than will actually see the critically drubbed big-screen musical. read more


This simply sounds too good to not mention: Will Ferrell and Napoleon Dynamite's Jon Heder are in preliminary talks to star in Blades of Glory, a film comedy about two disgraced male figure skaters who find a loophole out of their suspension by partnering with each other in pairs events. Arrested Development's Will Arnett and his real-life wife, Saturday Night Live's Amy Poehler, would play their rivals. read more


A Superior Court judge has issued a temporary restraining order to keep Playboy Playmate Nicole Narain from distributing a homemade sex video of her in action with Colin Farrell. The famously promiscuous actor filed a lawsuit on Monday to keep the 15-minute video, made years ago during his and Narain's relationship, from ever seeing the light of day. The next hearing is scheduled for Aug. 10. Narain reportedly is pondering Plan B: dusting off a tape of her with Will Ferrell.

Will Ferrell Bares All

Will Ferrell will do anything for a laugh — and that includes posing nude on the cover of TV Guide magazine (on sale tomorrow). But in his latest film, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, the former Saturday Night Live cut-up says he attempted to peel back the emotional layers to reveal the heartache hidden beneath his title character's pompous exterior. Seriously. "Ron enjoys the mantle of being San Diego's No. 1 news guy," Ferrell says. "But he's a little sad when he gets home, opens that refrigerator door and there are just two beers and an empty Chinese-food carton — and [only] his dog waiting for him. He's slightly pathetic but he doesn't want anyone to know." If it sounds like Ferrell has a good handle on Burgundy, it's probably because he co-wrote Anchorman with director Adam McKay. "This whole idea kind of came about when I was watching a documentary about news people in the '70s," the read more
