Some of Hollywood's funniest actors teamed up with ice skating's finest for the LA premiere of Blades of Glory. The movie, which stars Will Ferrell and Jon Heder as professional ice skaters, looks hilarious -- check out the full review here. Based on Will's past success, this movie has huge box office potential, but he doesn't strike us as someone who lets fame get to his head. He recently talked to AP about how lucky he feels to be so well received in a career that he truly loves. Here's more
Ferrell: There's definitely a pocket of people who, for whatever reasons, their voices are being listened to at this moment in time and have enough juice to get things made and have this sensibility that seems to be working for audiences. ... It's funny how lucky comedy is. Sometimes an idea will hit you that you find obviously funny and you think, "That could be commercially successful." Aside from those few moments, you're usually just going with something you think is funny and it's just luck that more people than you think it's funny as well.
AP: It sounds like you feel it's fleeting.
Ferrell: I do. I don't know if it's just that thing in me that always feels like, "Ah, I can't believe I still get to do this." It feels like you do for better or worse have a shelf-life.
We certainly think that Will will be around for a while. Not only is he incredibly funny, but he seems really sweet, too. Heck, we're even excited to see him in spandex...kind of.
