Will was seen getting prepped by hair and makeup as he prepared to shoot a Jewish funeral scene with Paul for the series.

The Shrink Next Door is a dark comedy inspired by true events that detail the bizarre relationship between psychiatrist to the stars Dr. Isaac “Ike” Herschkopf (Rudd) and his longtime patient Martin “Marty” Markowitz (Ferrell). Over the course of their relationship, the all-too-charming Ike slowly takes over Marty’s life, even moving into Marty’s Hamptons home and taking over his family business. The series explores how a seemingly normal doctor-patient dynamic morphs into an unprecedentedly exploitative relationship filled with manipulation, power grabs, and dysfunction at its finest.

As of right now, The Shrink Next Door doesn’t have a premiere date.

Will Ferrell Wants to Crush Norway in Super Bowl 2021 Commercial for General Motors - Kenan Thompson & Awkwafina Join Him! (Video)

Will Ferrell punches a world globe after learning a little tidbit about Norway in General Motors’ Super Bowl LV Commercial.

The Eurovision star vents his frustration about Norway being the leader in Electric Vehicles over other countries of the world, especially The United States.

“Hopefully people will have a good chuckle and then have the opportunity to think about driving an electric car and entertain that thought,” he shared with People about the commercial. “But also continue to think of ways that they can live their lives to help the environment, help with climate change, help the planet.”

Starring alongside Will in the commercial are Awkwafina and Kenan Thompson, who found a more practical way to get to Norway, but end up getting lost in a neighboring country.

GM’s “Everybody In” campaign is committing the company to bring 30 new EVs to market globally by 2025.

There Was An 'Elf' Joke in Netflix's 'Eurovision' That No One Picked Up On According to Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell is opening up about the one joke in Eurovision that nobody picked up on.

During his interview with Variety, the 53-year-old actor dished about how in the Netflix movie, everybody believes that elves exist, which was actually designed to be a nod to Elf.

“You know what’s funny? Nobody got the subtext to that,” Will shared. “We were trying to put in this bit about how Lars has issues with elves and elves are stupid and thought, ‘That’s going to get such a funny laugh because of Buddy the Elf’.”

However, it “just went over everyone’s head.”

Will added that it was “supposed to be such an obvious joke that we should have my character just hate all things elf-related, and I starred in Elf. And that just kind of flew by.”

Elf has become a cultural holiday classic movie since its release in 2003, and it also starred Zooey Deschanel, James Caan and Mary Steenbergen.

One of the stars also opened up about why there was never a sequel to the movie. Find out here…

Man Dresses as Buddy from 'Elf' to Meet His Father for First Time

If you love the movie Elf, you’re going to love this story!

A man named Doug Henning, who is in his 40s, grew up with a set of adopted parents and he just discovered his biological father thanks to Ancestry.com. His father, Raul, actually didn’t know he existed until Doug reached out.

Henning planned his first in-person meetup with his dad for Thanksgiving weekend and he came up with the idea to dress up as Buddy after watching the Will Ferrell movie Elf with his family just days before the visit.

In Elf, Buddy meets his biological father, who doesn’t know about him, and breaks into song. Doug decided to do the same thing when his father Raul walked up to him at the airport. Watch below!

“When he came out of the airport, he probably thought I was a lunatic,” Henning told Boston.com. “It was a really good way to break the ice.”

Henning‘s father had never seen the movie, so he likely had no clue what was going on. “We ultimately sat down as a family and watched the movie,” he said.

You can watch the scene from the movie below!

One of the stars of Elf recently revealed why a sequel never happened.

The new Netflix movie Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga features some amazing new songs, including the finale number “Husavik,” which is sung by Rachel McAdams‘ character.

This post contains some spoilers for the movie, so beware of reading any further!

Eurovision Song Contest follows aspiring Icelandic musicians Lars (Will Ferrell) and Sigrit (McAdams), who are given the opportunity of a lifetime to represent their country at the world’s biggest song competition.

The duo, known as Fire Saga, are the laughing stock of the competition due to the mishaps that happen throughout their performances, but they make it to the grand finale. Instead of performing the song they entered into the contest, the duo decides to disqualify themselves and sing “Husavik” instead. The song was written by Sigrit as her declaration of love to Lars and their hometown in Iceland.

Rachel doesn’t actually provide the vocals for her character and she lip syncs to the voice of another star. Learn more about the artist who sings Sigrit’s songs!

“Where the mountains sing through the screams of seagulls / Where the whales could live ’cause they’re gentle people / In my hometown, my hometown,” Sigrit sings in the ballad. Part of the song is also performed in Icelandic!
