Will Ferrell Will Do Anything to Get You to Vote, Including Making This Video

It's no secret that Will Ferrell is a Democrat, so the fact that he's starring in a political ad that's supportive of President Barack Obama isn't that surprising. What is genuinely surprising, however, is the fact that the majority of the video is actually focused on getting folks to vote in general. Mr. Ron Burgundy himself promises to do anything to get you to vote, like giving you a tattoo or dancing for your pleasure. Granted, he probably actually won't do these things, but a little comedy never hurt.

Kristen Wiig Leaves Saturday Night Live In an Emotional Goodbye

Officially Official

What's been rumor for a while now has finally been confirmed -- after seven seasons on NBC's Saturday Night Live, Kristen Wiig is moving on. Last year, the superstar comedian proved she could draw an audience beyond the late-night institution with her script for and performance in Bridesmaids, the former of which got her an Oscar nomination. So, yes -- it will be sad to see Wiig's brand of demented but lovable characters gone from Saturday nights. But she's going to be just fine.

Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy Announces Anchorman Sequel, Most of Original Team and Cast Return

On Conan last night, Will Ferrell appeared as Anchorman's Ron Burgundy, flute and all, and announced that Anchorman will be getting a sequel.

million dollar lady

Amy Poehler was presented with the Variety Power of Comedy Award and took the opportunity during her acceptance speech to pitch a few new shows to television executives.

But mostly, she's just incredibly funny while also being really touching about the gathering's real purpose -- raising money for the Noreen Fraser Foundation, which supports fundraising for women's cancer research. Will Ferrell presented the award to Poehler, and then left with the gentleman who brought the actual award onstage after making out with him. (If someone can tell me who that guy is, I'll happily fix the post and include his name. He is not a piece of meat, after all.) (via AV Club)
