HIT: Fallon, Timberlake and Carell make us laugh
When these three get together, it’s nothing but laughs. Carell and Timberlake pose as salesmen with fake arms and who’ve names their suits after former ‘N Syanc members Lance Bass and Joey Fatone. Justin also makes some refernces to his song Suit & Tie . Brilliant.
MISS: Kris Jenner Sex Tape
Okay ew, eww, ewww! Like mother, like daughter. Kim isn’t the only one who’s showing off her assets on-screen. According to Enquirer‘s source, ”Kris was talking about how liberating it was to be filmed having sex and how it was a turn-on to watch herself with her lover.” Kris you better go back and burn that tape. Ain’t nobody wanna see that!
HIT: Shia LaBeouf’s hot abs
1. Showering for dummies
“Have you been imagining cool things to say for a long time?” Embarrassingly true. But I think they forgot reciting the entire score of Rent…
I legitimately cried from laughter when I saw this. If I walked into my room to see my cat making this face, I’d probably snap a photo too. The question is, what are they looking at on the computer? Hmm..
3. Is this guy single?
Apparently a Ryan Gosling-Steve Carell hybrid exists. This is the best day ever.
4. Beyonce has a message for Romney…
Beyonce posted this punny picture on her tumblr a few days ago. We got the message Bey, you’re Team Obama.
5. Harry Potter and Hermione reunion
I dressed up as Hermione for four consecutive years of my life. Not once did this happen. If Emma Watson ever recognized my Halloween costume, I would probably combust out of pure joy.
andPOP is giving 2 lucky visitors a chance to win a “Seeking A Friend for the End of the World” prize pack.
“Taking audiences on a humorous, moving, and intimate journey against an epic backdrop of Earth’s final days, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Lorene Scafaria (Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist). Set in a too-near future where time at once stands still and is slipping away forever, the writer/director explores what people will do and how they will feel when humanity’s end is near.
A 70-mile-wide asteroid is en route to Earth, and the last best attempt to counter it has failed. Also failing is the marriage of soft-spoken insurance salesman Dodge (Golden Globe Award winner Steve Carell); the breaking news that the world will end in an estimated 21 days cues his wife to leave him on the spot.”

Funny man Steve Carell appeared on The Ellen Show Wednesday to promote his new comedy, ‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World’ which he also stars along Keira Knightley. The two played a hilarious game of charades with everything around the theme of summer.
I was personally waiting for Ellen to impersonate the first winner of American Idol, just so he could scream out “KELLY CLARKSON.” But to leave it on that note, I’ll never look at a popsicle the same again.

I can’t help it. Listening to the jibberish squeals of Gru’s minions as they try to sing the Beach Boys’ “Barbara Ann” makes me go “d’aww.”
The new trailer for the sequel to Steve Carell’s Despicable Me has three of the yellow aliens combining harmonies and the fourth playing the noisemaker.
But don’t get too excited. We still have to wait until 2013 until the movie is released.
Jim Carrey is set to make a guest-appearance on the season 7 finale of “The Office” alongside the star-studded fiesta that includes Ricky Gervais, Will Ferrell, Will Arnett, James Spader, Ray Romano and Catherine Tate.
We all know that this is the last season for Steve Carrell’s Michael Scott and the above-mentioned actors are all potential replacements to fill his management position at the beloved Dunder Mifflin. But, sorry to shatter the fantasy, but there is very little likeliness that any of these big names will reprise their roles after the finale.
In recent interviews, Gervais, who has co-created the series and its original British version, has said that Arnett should be made a regular character on the show. Rainn Wilson, who plays Dwight Schrute, told Entertainment Weekly that Ferrell is “not expected to replace Carell on the show permanently”.
Should be an interesting toss-up and will definitely make for good television to see Ron Burgundy duke it out with Ace Ventura and Gob Bluth. Tune in next Thursday on NBC.
Who do you think would make the best boss?
Perez Hilton reports that the Office’s most recent buzzed-about guest star, Will Ferrell, could be written into the show as a permanent character to replace Steve Carell. Ferrell confirmed the story with a reporter at last weekend’s Comedy awards, but we all know Will is the master of deadpan and could be totally joking about the whole thing!
Ferrell said: “Yes, I’m taking over. My character’s name is Deangelo Vickers, he loves the American Southwest, and he’s just kind of in his own way going to step into Michael Scott’s shoes and try to fill them. I’m friends with Steve and a fan of the show, and I just selfishly wanted to do one episode with him, and they pitched multiple ones, and I said, ‘That’d be great.’”
It’s impossible to tell whether Ferrell was being serious or not without some sort of footage, none of which has emerged just yet.
What do you think? Would you be stoked to see Will Ferrell become the new face of The Office?
Earlier this year, it was announced that Will Ferrell (of Will Ferrell) landed a guest spot on The Office.
Ferrell is rumoured to play another branch manager from the home office that is just as incompetent and dumb witted as Steve Carell’s character, Michael Scott.
He agreed to the appearance to mark the loss of Carell’s farewell. The two have appeared together and harmonized over ‘Afternoon Delight’ in the comedy classic, Anchoman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. He will appear in four episodes, and Rainn Wilson, who plays Dwight Schrute in the series, could not be happier.
“We’ve been doing a ton with Will Ferrell, and it is so cool,” he said. “I just keep thinking, ‘I’m acting with Will Ferrell! This is so awesome!’ And he’s the nicest guy: just a sweetheart and so much fun.”
Could Ferrell potentially replace Carell??
“He is the new manager that Michael Scott has brought in to replace him, but we kind of swiftly realise that that’s a terrible idea. Terrible,” Wilson reported to MTV News.
This could be very interesting.
With the most beloved character, Michael Scott, and actor on ‘The Office,” Steve Carell, leaving NBC had to do something so that Carell will go out with a bang. Therefore, NBC hired on Will Ferrell to reunite with his Anchorman co-star for the end of the season.
According to InsideTV.EW.Com, Ferrell will have a four episode run and will be playing a branch manager who arrives from the home office and is entirely incompetent just like Michael Scott. Three episodes will feature both Carell and Farrell as Carell is leaving four episodes before the season’s finale.
We’ve seen the hilarity that ensues when Ferrell and Carell play alongside each other. “The Office” should prove to be no different as the actors have a natural comedic chemistry. Ferrell will also help to boost the shows ratings and perhaps draw an even bigger audience due to his popularity.
Michael Scott apparently will not last the entire season, and will be killed off before the finale in May. Why? The last weeks of the season will see the crew at Dunder-Mifflin “scrambling to replace him,” according to the Huffington Post.
Michael Scott’s last scenes will probably air in April. However Steve Carell will be keeping busy with an onslaught of movie rolls and he will be both a nominee and a presenter at this year’s Golden Globes.
So incompetent bosses and workplaces aren’t unique to the Western world it turns out. The New York Post reports that Gervais is taking “The Office” to China with a Chinese version of the popular program.
“I have some amazing news,” Gervais wrote on his blog. “We are about to start work on developing a Chinese ‘The Office.’ How cool is that?”
Gervais also confirmed that he will not be taking over for Steve Carell on NBC’s “The Office” after the next season.
“I’m not taking over from Steve Carell and will just continue to make millions for doing f*** all,” he wrote, “because I created the show and all the characters, and own the format and it’s being syndicated now and I get paid every time any episode of any version is played anywhere in the world.”
Let us ask you a question. What do you think about Danny McBride Rhys Darby as Steve Carell’s replacement on “The Office?” Well according to Entertainment Weekly, producers of the NBC shows have started conversations with both HBO actors.
Both men are known for their work on HBO comedies. Danny stars in “Eastbound & Down,” playing Kenny Powers, a former professional athlete desperately trying to reclaim his glory days, while serving as a high school educator. Rhys, meanwhile, played Murray Hewitt, the band’s manager on “Flight of the Conchords.”
Both are great actors, but we are not sure either of them are the right fit to replace Carell. Life just will not be the same without Michael Scott.
Steve Carell will be leaving his post as Michael Scott on NBC’s hit show “The Office” after the upcoming season. When asked last night by Craig Ferguson why he was leaving, Carell explained he didn’t know the answer. He later rebuffed saying it was to spend more time with his family.
“Honestly, to spend more time with my family,” said the actor. Ferguson replied, “That’s usually what politicians say when they’re caught doing something with their pee-pees … He says, ‘Well, I’m retiring, but not because of what you think — just to spend a little more time with my family.’
Definitely the show will be different without the legendary Michael Scott. Anybody have any views on how writers will get rid of the Michael Scott character?
E! News reports Carell has confirmed he will be leaving the NBC sitcom after Season 7. He made these comments at the red carpet premiere for “Despicable Me.”
“I just think it’s time,” Carell said on the red carpet. “I want to fulfill my contract. When I first signed on I had a contract for seven seasons, and this coming year is my seventh. I just thought it was time for my character to go.”
Now can the show continue without Michael Scott? Isn’t it like Seinfeld without Jerry Seinfeld?
“It doesn’t certainly mean the end of the show. I think it’s just a dynamic change to the show, which could be a good thing, actually. Add some new life and some new energy…I see it as a positive in general for the show,” Carell said.
So who will replace Michael Scott as the Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin Infinity? Should they hire (or cast) someone new? Or promote within?
Sitcom television isn’t having much luck – and it looks like Steve Carell is following in the footsteps of Charlie Sheen. Yes, it’s true – there may be no Michael Scott in the popular sitcom The Office after next season.
During an interview with BBC, Carell dropped the horrible bomb that he may not be re-signing his contract next year.
When the interviewer asked, “How long will you stay with The Office for? How many more [seasons]? How long does your contract run?” Carell responded, “Contract through next season.”
When he was asked “And will you stay after that?” the 47-year-old actor responded, “I don’t think so. I think that will probably be my last year.”
Well, at least he said, “think,” so there may still be hope. Perhaps it was part of a negotiation tactic, and Michael Scott will alive and well in the Scranton branch. NBC has yet to comment on the interview.
It is almost impossible to imagine The Office without the immature, inappropriate and absolutely hilarious Michael Scott.
“The terms of my settlement say that I can’t host another show for seven months,” O’Brien said. “So next week, look forward to the Andy Richter Show with his sidekick, me!”
Jay Leno will be returning next week to host the show.
Oprah Winfrey is interviewing Leno in Los Angeles for her Thursday show and has invited O’Brien to participate. It has not been reported whether he will accept her offer.
“As I set off for exciting new career opportunities, I just want to make one things clear to everyone listening out there: I will do nudity,” he said in his final monologue.
Actor James Franco is set to play a prince in Universal’s upcoming comedy “Your Highness.” The Golden Globe-nominee will reunite with “Pineapple Express” costar Danny McBride and David Gordon Green, the movie’s director, according to Variety.
“Your Highness” tells the story of two princes and their journey to protect their family kingdom from the hands of an evil magician and is set to start shooting in July, according to E! Online.
Also, funny-man Steve Carell may star in a Warner Bros. comedy called “Dumped.” The movie is about a divorced man who searches for new meaning in his life.
Comedic heavyweights Steve Carell and Tina Fey are joining forces for the upcoming movie “Date Night.”
According to Variety, Carell and Fey have been cast in the 20th Century Fox comedy as a married couple whose routine date night turns into something much more than just a dinner and movie.
The film will be directed by Shawn Levy, whose credits include “Cheaper by the Dozen” and “Night at the Museum,” as well as the latter’s upcoming sequel.
“I wanted to do a relatable, grounded character comedy about marriage and the lengths we go to preserve the spark,” Levy told Daily Variety.
“Tina and Steve are smart and relatable, and the tone of their comedy perfectly fits this film.”
Carell is known for starring turns in “The 40 Year Old Virgin” and “The Office,” while Fey is an “SNL” alumni and writer-star on “30 Rock.”
“Date Night” will begin shooting next year, when the two stars are on hiatus from their respective TV shows.
Shelley Malil, who played one of Steve Carell’s co-workers in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his ex-girlfriend as many as 20 times.
TMZ reports that Malil, who also starred in the “Wassup” Budweiser commercials, attacked the woman in her home in San Diego, chasing her inside and outside the house. He was later apprehended at an Amtrak station.
The victim’s two children were in the house at the time of the attack. Her condition is unknown.
