Will Ferrell: Comic Genius

One of my friends just pointed out that the trailer for the new Will Ferrell movie, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, is up and available here. It comes out in August, and it looks like NASCAR and redneck humor will be a winning combination.

Ferrell is one of those rare comedians who makes me laugh just by looking at him. He's also provided some of the funniest supporting characters for the big screen in recent memory.

For some weekend laughs, here's
Ferrell doing the classic cowbell Blue Oyster Cult skit. Happy Friday.

Top 5 Will Ferrell Movie Characters

1. Ron Burgundy in Anchorman
2. Frank the Tank in Old School
3. Jacobin Mugatu in Zoolander
4. Chas Reinhold in Wedding Crashers
5. Big Gay Earl in Starsky and Hutch

"Tank" is def No #1 for me...

It's about time somebody rips on the whole NASCAR thing... I seriously don't get the whole thing about cars only taking left turns all the time. Then again, maybe it's just me...

So you ever score Arctic Monkeys tix to their show in Baltimore 6/12/06? I assume you didn't... since there's no post on my boys ;)

Your boys Ecuador are kicking some serious ass in the World Cup. One of the great surprises so far...

hey Steve - unfortunately, as you guessed, I was not able to get Actic Monkeys tickets, much to my disappointment.

As for Ecuador, I'm just as surprised as everyone else, hopefully they can keep it up!
