The Acting Pairs You Always Wanted to See (even if you didn’t know it)

(This is a preview of the PopRox column in Sunday’s paper, with some added Arrested Development goodness here. SEO, bitches.) When Jim Carrey and Steve Carell were cast as a pair of dueling magicians in the comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, it hit us. “Why didn’t they think of this before?” Their careers had somewhat […]

Will Ferrell Will Run for President Before He’s the Next Office Boss

Some links and a Sunday column preview: Will Ferrell has been hovering around NBC’s Thursday comedy block for about a year now, most notably in 30 Rock’s quick-hitting, hysterical show-within-a-show Bitch Hunter: But now he’s getting an upgrade into a four-episode appearance on The Officethat helps show Steve Carell the door.

The good news about the box office for the weekend is that all three of the new releases were non-sequels, one of the few times that’s happened this summer.

Paring Down the Awards Shows

Thanks to everyone that stopped by the third PopRox live chat Friday! Always a good time, for me at least. Next one is scheduled for Sept. 3. Today’s links: There are too many awards shows. We know that. So just in case you were wondering, here’s how you know an awards show is about as […]
