Will Ferrell 'almost impossible' to work with

Dec 11 2013, 4:54pm CST | by

Steve Carell found Will Ferrell ''almost impossible'' to work with because he's so funny.

The 51-year-old actor didn't hesitate to sign up for 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' as he had the ''best fun'' ever working on the original movie in 2004, but struggled to keep his composure while filming some of the hilarious scenes.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz at the premiere of the new comedy at The Odeon in London's Leicester Square tonight (11.12.13), the former 'The Office' USA star said: ''There's a scene we did in a lighthouse with Ron and it's probably the scene I laughed the hardest at.

''Will was so especially funny that day, it was almost impossible to get it [the scene] done.''

He added: ''It was the best fun I've had. None of us questioned going back to make this film.''

Steve, who has two children, Elizabeth, 12, and John, nine, with his wife Nancy Walls, credited his family for helping him to stay grounded despite his success.

He said: ''My children have watched the original but they don't really think of me as an actor, they just see me as Dad.''

Other stars that walked the burgundy carpet included Will, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Olly Murs, James Corden and the cast of 'Made in Chelsea'.

Actor David Koechner, who plays Champ Kind, said filming the sequel was a ''remarkable experience.''

He said: ''We just enjoy each other's company, I thought the script was amazing when I first read it.

''Every day getting to play with these guys and work, get back together, it was a truly remarkable experience.

''Will's an amazing guy, he's so super funny. These guys always write amazing comedy.''

He added: ''It's a bit weirder than a lot of stuff but people respond to it.''

TCA: Kate Walsh Comes To Defense Of NBC’s ‘Bad Judge’

TV critics seem to have reservations about NBC’s new comedy series Bad Judge. The single-camera comedy stars Kate Walsh as Rebecca Wright, a tough judge serving on the Los Angeles County Circuit Court, who’s private life is pretty wild.  In the comedy, created by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, Wright  meets an eight-year-old boy whose parents she’d put in the hoosegow. Walsh said she loved the idea of playing a character who, in the first f ...

The LEGO Movie DVD Review: Building the Perfect Movie

Jun 17 2014 3:14pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

The success and how bloody fantastic The LEGO Movie is should not have surprised anyone. Given that the film is from Phil Lord and Chris Miller (who just gave us those inspired 22 Jump Street quotes), there is nothing these two can't do. And making a movie, based on a popular building block toy, was clearly a labor of love that can now be seen by everyone because The LEGO Movie is out now on DVD, Blu-Ray and di ...

Jun 15 2014 9:47pm CDT | Source: Collider

One of my favorite movies of 2014 is director Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s The LEGO Movie.  Loaded with great animation, a fun story, humor for both kids and adults, and an insanely addictive song (“Everything is Awesome”), The LEGO Movie is truly something special.  If you’re not familiar with the movie, it’s been made using a mix of stop-motion and CG animation and the pic revolves around Emmett (voiced by Chris Pratt), an ordinary construction worke ...

Some you certainly recognize, like well-known character actors Alan Ruck and Beth Grant, who have starred in everything from de Bont’s Twister and TV’s Spin City to films like A Time to Kill and No Country for Old Men. Others have toiled behind the scenes and remain in comparatively thankless positions in the industry, like Marylou Lim, a set costumer who frequently collaborates with actor Will Ferrell, or 100-year-old Milton Quon, a legendary Disney animat ...

Jun 5 2014 8:05am CDT | Source: movies.com

Jurassic Park: As we anticipate Jurassic World in 2015, it's a good time to look backward to the first installment of the dinosaur series. Jurassic Park, released in 1992, was filmed in part on the gorgeous island of Kauai, Hawaii; as the photos above reveal, however, very little remains of the iconic entrance gate all these years later.
