My secret crush

Or not so secret now. OK, so we've been talking about hot men all summer, Vamp Eric, Taylor Kitsch and they are lovely, but the person I'm loving right now is Will Ferrell.

It was a slow conversion. I found Old School mildly funny, I did love Elf, found Anchorman funny, but mostly for Steve Carrell, and then Bewitched killed any budding love I had for him.
Talledega Nights and Step Brothers were mildly funny, buy I never did see the overwhelming love other people (mostly men) had for Will, until The Other Guys. I don't know why, but that movie makes me snort milk (who am I kidding, cider) because I'm laughing so hard.

It even made me love Mark Wahlberg, whom, aside from The Departed, I've found to be mostly forgettable, even with those abs.

It was like a switch turned on, and now I find Will Ferrell hilarious, even the pretty awful Land of the Lost made me laugh. No one else does pompous stupidity better, except maybe for John Cleese in Fawlty Towers.

I'm going back now and watching everything he's ever done and finally finding Anchorman hilarious and this weekend, I'm going to watch Talledega nights. I'm even going to try and see the Campaign in theatres.

I'm on the Will Ferrell is a genius bandwagon. He's hilarious in interviews, we know almost nothing about him, because he almost never talks about his personal life, and started the Funny and Die videos, which if you haven't seen, well, google them, and ... you're welcome...

So he's my not so secret summer crush.

Oh, now that's an interesting crush! I loved The Other Guys too. Not only was it funny, but the plot hung together. A rare combination.

I agree - a very interesting crush. Have you see the one where he's a character in a book...what was that called- he was great.

The thing I love about his movies is I am assured one giant belly laugh - at least one. Those are so rare...
