Comedian and Veteran Rob Riggle to Host Golf Tournament Benefitting Wounded Service Members
Rob Riggle is hosting an event to celebrate the two things he really loves — veterans and golf — and no, it’s not the Catalina Wine Mixer.

The Step Brothers actor and comedian, who is a veteran himself, will host his second annual Rob Riggle InVETational Golf Classic in partnership with military media brand We Are the Mighty on Dec. 4 to raise money and awareness for the Semper Fi Fund, a nonprofit organization that supports wounded, critically ill and injured service members and their families.

“It makes me proud to champion veterans and their families,” Riggle, 47, tells People of the event.

Listen to the 'Joyful and Mournful, Romantic and Heartbroken' Title Track to 'Lady Bird' (Exclusive)

Listen to the 'Joyful and Mournful, Romantic and Heartbroken' Title Track to 'Lady Bird' (Exclusive)
Nearly everything about Greta Gerwig's directorial debut, Lady Bird, is perfect, from the script (which she also wrote) to the casting (including Saoirse Ronan as the titular Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson and Laurie Metcalf as her lovingly exasperated mother) to the costumes, cinematography and music.

While Gerwig makes excellent use of Dave Matthews Band in the film, she also enlisted composer Jon Brion (responsible for such varied work as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Step Brothers) to craft the score, which she calls "joyful and mournful, romantic and heartbroken." Below, listen to the Lady Bird—Original Motion Picture Soundtrack:

"In Jon I found a musical soulmate," Gerwig writes in the album's liner notes. "His work is emotional and witty and old-fashioned and forward thinking all at once…I am so grateful for him and the music he made, and it is what allowed Lady Bird to soar."

‘Daddy’s Home 2’ Review: Mel Gibson Proves to Be One Daddy Too Many in Queasy Holiday Comedy
Daddy’s Home 2” isn’t sorry. It doesn’t care about your stupid feelings. Don’t remember what happened at the end of the last movie, or which home belongs to which daddy? Too bad. Don’t want your festive family comedies to star Mel Gibson as a serial womanizer with a flair for violence? Well, “The Man Who Invented Christmas” isn’t out until next week, so you’re shit out of luck. Don’t understand how Will Ferrell could re-team with Mark Wahlberg when a sequel to “Step Brothers” is possibly the only thing that could pull civilization back from the brink? Get in line.

A follow-up to one of Sofia Coppola’s favorite movies of all time, “Daddy’s Home 2” literally ends with its characters snowbound in a multiplex and forced to watch some limp Hollywood garbage because they don’t have anything better to do. In a better world,

‘No Activity’ Review: Will Ferrell’s Funny, No-Frills Buddy Comedy Should Inspire Creatives to Create

‘No Activity’ Review: Will Ferrell’s Funny, No-Frills Buddy Comedy Should Inspire Creatives to Create
The premise of “No Activity” is so simple it’s dangerous. The police are stuck in an extended waiting game with a drug cartel. With the bad guys’ plan stalled, the cops have nothing to do but sit in their unmarked cruiser and keep an eye on their hideout. The two partners can only talk to each other to pass the time, and the same is true for the criminals on the inside and the dispatchers back at the station.

In other words, nothing happens. There’s literally no activity (barring the final moments of the first two episodes), and the entire comedy relies on banter between various partners to carry the show.

Improbably, it works. Buoyed by strong comedic performances from likable personalities, both new and familiar, and the sharp dialogue courtesy of series creator Trent O’Donnell and star Patrick Brammall, “No Activity” is a low-key pleasure. It goes down easy,

Step Brothers 2: Will Ferrell on why the project’s dead

Simon Brew Nov 7, 2017

The relative failure of Anchorman 2 seemed to end any hopes of Step Brothers 2...

For many, the finest collaboration of director Adam McKay and star Will Ferrell wasn’t Anchorman or Talladega Nights. It was Step Brothers. Released to good business and middling reviews, sequel talk surfaced soon after its release. But said sequel talk now seems to have been finally shut down by Ferrell, in a new interview with the New York Daily News.

Will Ferrell Finally Reveals the ‘Step Brothers’ Sequel Storyline That Never Got Made

Will Ferrell Finally Reveals the ‘Step Brothers’ Sequel Storyline That Never Got Made
Will Ferrell fans are no doubt shocked that a movie like “Daddy’s Home” is getting a sequel before such favorites as “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” and “Step Brothers.” The latter was an R-rated box office success in 2008 and gained near-legendary status by becoming an endlessly re-watchable favorite on cable television networks like FX. The film, which starred Ferrell opposite John C. Reilly as a pair of grown men still living with their parents, seemed like a logical choice for a sequel, and yet the stars and director Adam McKay have never moved forward with one.

Abandoned Step Brothers 2 Plot Revealed by Will Ferrell

Abandoned Step Brothers 2 Plot Revealed by Will Ferrell
Step Brothers has easily gone on to become one of Will Ferrell's most beloved comedies. As such, there has been a lot of talk, or at least talk from others about a sequel over the years. Since the movie was financially successful, Ferrell, co-star John C. Reilly and director Adam McKay have at least kicked around some ideas. Now, the basic plot for Step Brothers 2 has been revealed and it sounds pretty fantastic.

Will Ferrell was recently speaking in defense of Anchorman 2, a comedy sequel that everyone seemed to want but few people ultimately liked. During the course of the conversation, he was asked about Step Brothers 2 and, for the first time, he dished on some actual plot details that had been kicked around. Here's what he had to say about it.

Will Ferrell discusses the plot for the Step Brothers sequel

While on the promotional trail for the sequel to one of his biggest comedy hits, Daddy’s Home, Will Ferrell spoke to the New York Daily News about other follow-ups from his comedy back-catalogue, and in particular why we’ve never had a Worldwide Prestige reunion in Step Brothers 2.

It turns out that Ferrell and his long-time collaborator, Adam McKay, had an idea, but their experience with the reception of Anchorman 2 has put them off the idea of sequels. Ferrell said:-

“We talked about Step Brothers, and then Adam and I got sidetracked with other things.We had a whole story where John and I follow our parents to live in a retirement community and try to convince them that we earned the right to retire as well… The sequel thing is so funny because, we decided obviously to go down the road with Anchorman, and we made what

Will Ferrell Reveals Elements Of The ‘Step Brothers’ Sequel Idea

In 2008, coming off back-to-back critical and box-office disappointments with “Semi-Pro” and “Blades of Glory,” Will Ferrell looked a little down and out. He returned to his writer/director buddy Adam McKay for “Step Brothers,” a film that reteamed him with his “Talladega Nights: the Ballad of Ricky Bobby” co-star John C. Reilly.

Christian Bale & Amy Adams Are Unrecognizable as Dick and Lynne Cheney in First Photos

The first images of Christian Bale and Amy Adams in director Adam McKay’s untitled Dick Cheney movie have arrived, and they are something. McKay, who rose to prominence directing comedies like Anchorman, Talladega Nights and Step Brothers, made his dramatic debut with The Big Short to massive success and an Oscar win for Best Adapted Screenplay. The notoriously political writer/director and former SNL head writer then used that clout to move forward with a movie about Dick Cheney, the most powerful Vice President in history, and he swung for the fences with his casting. While there was no …

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in October 2017

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in October 2017
For movie lovers, October is the gloriously ghoulish time of year when we celebrate one kind of film above all others. That’s right: Biting comedies about dysfunctional New York Jews who finally decide to air their grievances after decades of resentment! Um… well, maybe Netflix didn’t get the memo. It’s not as though the streaming service isn’t scaring up some choice horror titles in time for Halloween (don’t miss “Raw” or “The Cult of Chucky”), but most of the month’s big new additions aren’t exactly in season.

Case in point: The splashiest arrival is a Noah Baumbach film, and it’s safe to say that “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” is considerably less frightening than any of the Adam Sandler comedies that Netflix has brought to you before. On the other hand, it’s true that movies can terrify you in a

Sam Rockwell To Play George W. Bush In ‘Cheney’

If anyone had doubts about whether or not Adam McKay of “Step Brothers” and “Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy“ fame could pivot from comedy to drama, “The Big Short” put those to rest. Way more fun than any movie about the financial crisis and housing market crash of mid-2000s had a right to be, the picture also proved that McKay could roll with awards season players, with his star-studded movie earning a trophy for Best Adapted Screenplay along with five nominations.

Will Ferrell To Star In Adaptation Of ‘The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared’

Will Ferrell‘s filmography has been, more or less, stacked with his popular brand of outrageous, improv-style comedy. The classics are well-known (“Anchorman,” “Old School” “Step Brothers,” “Talladega Nights,” “Elf“) but duds have happened as well (“Semi-Pro,” “Land of the Lost,” “Bewitched,” “Casa De Mi Padre” “Get Hard,” “The Campaign“).

Will Ferrell Takes the Lead in The 100 Year-Old Man

Will Ferrell Takes the Lead in The 100 Year-Old Man
It's official. Will Ferrell is The 100 Year-Old Man. The improv icon will be starring in the comedy for CBS Films. The script for this hilarious caper will be based on author Jonas Jonasson's bestselling novel The 100 Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared. Not only is Ferrell set to play the lead, he'll also be producing the movie.

Will Ferrell is playing senior citizen Allan. The elderly man manages to escapes from his nursing home on his 100th birthday. While he goes on the run, it is revealed that Allan took part in several different defining events from the 20th Century. It's a lot like that little seen movie from 1994 called Forrest Gump. The movie was already made in Sweden. In that version, Allan had a fateful meeting with President Harry S. Truman. And he also had a memorable run-in with Robert Oppenheimer, the guy who created the atomic bomb.
