And with this photo, it's confirmed that Drake is now joining the star-studded cast of Anchorman 2, specifically the superstar rapper cameo list with Kanye West. This gets me to thinkin... who else from the hip hop world may don a 70s afro and trade lines with the likes of Will Ferrell and Steve Carell. This was captured while the movie was filming in NYC, via the NY Daily News. Hah! This flick is gonna be somethin else...
UPDATE: The new trailer for Anchorman 2 also dropped today. Hilarious (but that goes without saying).
Kanye West dons a wig and uses a hockey stick in Anchorman 2
Some hilarious new pics on the set of Anchorman 2 surfaced this weekend, just days after it was leaked that 'Ye was prime to make a cameo. They showcase a wigged-out Kanye West welding a hockey stick on (it looks like) Steve Carrell. Hah! Another action shot below, 'Ye with the star himself, and one more fun catch of 'Ye outside his trailer. And I thought I couldn't wait for Anchorman 2 any more... haha!
Kanye... How could you be so heartless?!
Will Ferrell: "Sorry Aubrey Plaza, but your award speech interruption was the GREATEST AWARD SPEECH INTERRUPTION OF ALL TIME!"
As many of you know from visiting the interweb's most popular site, Google, they switch up their "Doodles" daily and yesterday's was a big hit for fans of 93-year old Saul Bass. You probably don't know who that is, but he's the man responsible for the design and title sequences to some of your favorite movies.
In honor of his birthday yesterday, Google not only made multiple doodles in tribute, but also this video of title sequences paying homage to the films Saul worked on. In order: Psycho, The Man with the Golden Arm, Spartacus, West Side Story, Vertigo, North by Northwest, Anatomy of a Murder, Ocean's 11, and Around the World in Eighty Days.
Very cool. And a nice quick-hit design break for your Thursday!
This is a combination I already know I'm going to like. Kanye x Anchorman 2. The latter's original is one of my top 3 favorite comedies and Kanye is... Kanye. The news today outta the ATL is that 'Ye was on set for filming for the movie set to release in December, via Hollywood.com:
West was apparently filming in Atlanta alongside Christina Applegate and Paul Rudd while on a rooftop. Their "source" says he was "quite afraid of heights and required an umbrella for shade most of the time he was on the roof."
No matter if he plays himself, or a ridiculous friend or enemy of the Channel 4 News team, it's going to be the GREATEST CAMEO OF ALL-TIME! (or at least up there with Will Ferrell in Wedding Crashers)
In some weekend movie news, the new trailer for Scary Movie V can be seen above featuring cameos from Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan. The biggest chuckle I got during the trailer was the spoof of Inception, but this one figures to feature some cheap laughs, based primarily on a spoof of the Paranormal Activity series. The series was much better at the beginning when the Wayans Bros. were at the helm.
And as you may expect, TMZ is on top of the Lindsay Lohan fallout drama from the trailer, as she apparently is upset at the producers over what she's screaming at on the TV or something. Hah!
Couldn't pass up this piece of movie news tonight: Anchorman 2 is a year away from release, officially getting a December 20th, 2013 date. If you missed out on the teaser trailer, simply press play above and be sure you're in an environment where laughing out loud is acceptable.
Above is my first impression of The Hangover III - and it's a very favorable one since anytime the iconic Beatles cover gets spoofed, especially if it involves Zach Galifianakis, it's pretty hilarious.
I couldn't say the same about Hangover II, however. The sequel was very rushed and unoriginal compared to follow up the first one so soon after. Maybe the third installment will be different. Here's a little glimpse at the plot as well, via director Todd Phillips, that will focus on Zach Galifianakis' character: "He's going through a crisis after the death of his father, [and] the Wolfpack is all he has."
We just watched this at the office to nice reviews of "ooh, this looks like it'll be good." And yeah, even a casual fan of comics can appreciate what's on display here. I'm not up on Superman like other super heroes, but this does look cool. What do you guys think of the trailer that has accumulated quite the buzz during its release today?
Nope, they're not Shia LaBeouf & Megan Fox - and that's the idea that Michael Bay has for the fourth installment of Transformers. Joining Mark Wahlberg in the cast of Transformers 4 is Brenton Thwaites & Nicola Peltz. Their most notable roles came in Maleficent & The Last Airbender respectively and since I have seen neither of those, I am just now hearing and seeing their names and faces for the first time above.
The idea for Transformers is to distance themselves away from the franchise's staple of Shia and Megan even further and give some young actors a chance as well. Plus, you got Wahlberg to carry the film from a household name standpoint already. As long as they keep the robots and the extravagant special effects, I'm cool.
Expect to see Transformers 4 on big screens come June 27, 2014, as Peltz will play Wahlberg's daughter and Thwaites, her biker boyfriend.

Look out for the new movie written and directed by Quentin Tarentino this Christmas: Django Unchained - the premise surrounding a slave turned bounty hunter out to rescue his wife from a Mississippi plantation. As you'd expect with Tarentino, an all-star cast follows, including Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz (he better play the evil plantation owner), Leonardio DiCaprio (he's famous), Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson !!!!!!! (his name should permanently have exclaimation marks attached at the end).
As you can also see above, the soundtrack will have a tracklist littered with some big names in urban music, featuring a mix of James Brown's "The Payback" and 2Pac's "Untouchable" and new music from Rick Ross and John Legend.
