For the second installment in its new series, TheWrap brings you Will Ferrell‘s Top 10 movie quotes in honor of the release of “Get Hard” this weekend. Ferrell has had too many memorable movie quotes to count over the past 18 years after breaking out on the big screen in “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” and “A Night at the Roxbury” in 1997, so needless to say, it was hard to whittle the list down. While we’re aiming to keep it to one classic line per movie, we included multiple quotes from several movies due to their immense quotability. Also Read:. »

It's hard to tell from the premise alone of a Will Ferrell project whether his character will be brilliantly funny, painfully moronic, or some unholy, sidesplitting combination of the two. Take Ferrell's latest, "Get Hard" (opening March 27). He plays a millionaire arrested for fraud who enlists the only black person he knows (Kevin Hart) to train him to cope with the harsh realities of prison life. The result could be razor-sharp satire of the insular cluelessness of rich white people, or it could be offensive and cringe-worthy; probably, it'll be some of each.
After all, Ferrell's characters tend to be unpredictable because they're volatile. As the performer has proved over the past 20 years, from his tenure on "Saturday Night Live" (1995-2002) to his decade-plus reign as an unhinged comic leading man in movies, Ferrell likes to play the unfettered id, man-children with no impulse control (Ferrell likes to strip down and show his flabby, »

And we have forty years to look at. As you might have seen, SNL is turning forty this weekend, and what better way to celebrate than to get the whole gang back together and make it a night that will go down in the history books? Anyone who’s anyone is going to the reunion (well, that is anyone besides Eddie Murphy of course) and it’s sure to bring back everything that made the show what it is today.
So here we look at some of the best sketches that has ever graced our eyes thanks to Lorne Michael’s marvelous show filler for Johnny Carson. (That’s right- the whole reason the show exists is because Carson wanted »

Lochlyn Munro may not be an immediately recognisable name but the Canadian actor has certainly been a prominent face in mainstream media since his breakout in the late 90s. You’ll know him best for his comedic appearances in A Night At The Roxbury, Scary Movie and White Chicks but the talented star has also featured in 21 Jump Street, Charmed, Smallville, Castle and Arrow.
To celebrate the release of the new crime-thriller Badge Of Honor, we were fortunate enough to speak to Munro about the film, his past roles and his brilliantly diverse career.
Lochlyn: Hello, this is Lochlyn.
Thn: Hello Lochlyn, this is The Hollywood News. It’s a pleasure to be talking with you, I’m a huge fan!
Lochlyn: Oh well thanks, thanks! It must be a bit late for you out there, huh?
Thn: Yes, it’s actually 1 am here but I’m a bit of a night owl! »

It is hard to believe that creator Lorne Michaels’s legendary late night variety show Saturday Night Live has been kicking around the American airways for four decades and still remarkably standing on its hind legs even until this very day. No doubt that SNL has shaped the pop cultural minds of its avid viewers for forty-plus years on the small screen. Importantly, SNL gave birth to the careers of some of Hollywood’s major top stars in the realm of film, television and stage.
Sure, SNL is an immense institution in television. In fact, NBC-tv will acknowledge the iconic late night program when it broadcasts the 40th anniversary highlighting Saturday Night Live’s on-air staying power with many of the show’s luminaries returning and paying retrospect to the classic sketch comedy that became one of America’s most enduring and long-lasting laughfests.
