While Anchor Bay Nab Starry Channing Tatum-Led Ensemble Drama 'Ten Year'For a while, we were starting to wonder if we'd dreamed the Will Ferrell comedy "Casa De Mi Padre." On almost no one's radar before the start of this year, a surprise trailer for the project, a Spanish-language film co-starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, debuted back in the spring, but nothing's been heard from the film since, and we had to double check our archives to make sure it was a real thing, and not something that we'd imagined after a night with too many telenovelas and too much meth.

If you glanced at Twitter or any of your RSS feeds today, you may noticed that the internet is currently buzzing as Kanye West and Jay-Z's collaborative album Watch The Throne hit iTunes at midnight today and everyone was rocking it on their way to work this morning. Early word is strong on the album, which isn't surprising, and the album boasts a number of excellent samples which again, isn't that shocking. But one element that has been turning heads? The use of a bit of dialogue from Will Ferrell and Jon Heder's figure skating comedy "Blades Of Glory."

The pairing of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay is like peanut butter and chocolate, and of course, has been very lucrative as well. The duo collaborated on "Anchorman," "Step Brothers," "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" and last year's "The Other Guys" and Warner Bros., like the rest of us, wants to see these two back together again.

Filmmakers Didn't Want The Relationship With Rebecca Hall Go Hollywood & 12 Other Things We LearnedFirst-time feature-length director Dan Rush (known for his commercial work) must have naked pictures of some studio execs' off-hours, off-marriage tryst. Either that or his screenplay for "Everything Must Go," an adaptation of a four-page Raymond Carver story must have ruled. Considering the subtle, mannered, funny, yet not-broad dramedy that stars the very excellent cast of Will Ferrell, Rebecca Hall, Laura Dern, Michael Peña, Stephen Root and newcomer Christopher Jordan Wallace, we're thinking the latter.

Comedian Says Paramount Pictures Are Being "Idiots" About 'Anchorman 2'Playing the Tribeca Film Festival this week is the low-key Will Ferrell film, "Everything Must Go," directed by first-timer Dan Rush. Loosely based on a Raymond Carver short story and co-starring Michael Peña and Rebecca Hall, Ferrell turns in one of his most understated and nuanced performance ever (yes, including "Stranger Than Fiction") as an alcoholic who relapses, causing him to lose his wife, his job and his home which forces him to hold a yard sale on his front lawn in an attempt to start over.

It may have suffered somewhat in recent seasons from a dip in form, especially compared to the superior nature of most of the rest of the NBC comedy line-up -- "Community," "Parks and Recreation" and "30 Rock" -- but for the most part, we've immensely enjoyed the last seven seasons of "The Office." While it may not be as near-flawless as the BBC series on which it was based, it's remained remarkably consistent across over ten times the length, thanks to a star-making performance from lead Steve Carell, and one of the deepest, richest comedic ensembles around, one that's helped to launch names like John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and Ed Helms, as well as some still on the up, like Mindy Kaling, Rainn Wilson and Ellie Kemper.
