Megan Fox, Melissa McCarthy, Jerry Seinfeld, Paul Rudd & more cover Vanity Fair’s “Comedy Issue”

We’re getting our first look January’s ‘Comedy Issue’ of Vanity Fair. The three covers showcase the hottest comedians right now (Megan Fox!?). The issue was guest-edited by Judd Apatow, writer/director of the huge hits ’40 Year Old Virgin’, ‘Knocked Up’, and the upcoming ‘This is 40’.

Some of the comedians featured on the covers include Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld. I just love all three! Here’s more from VF:

In Vanity Fair’s first-ever comedy issue, writer, director, and producer Judd Apatow convened his most talented friends and idols to contribute, write, and pose for a 19-page Mark Seliger portfolio—as well as act incredibly dignified and businesslike in costume for three different covers. Included are the stars of Apatow’s This Is 40, dressed as famous figures of 60s- and 70s-era variety shows like Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, with Leslie Mann in a bikini and body paint à la Goldie Hawn and Melissa McCarthy dressed as Lily Tomlin’s Edith Ann; Paul Rudd plays your oily show host, and Megan Fox is an alluring bellhop.

A second cover features Jim Carrey dressed up as Evel Knievel, Maya Rudolph doing an ancient Egyptian like Steve Martin in his King Tut days, Will Ferrell as a corny cowboy, and Amy Poehler as a 60s go-go girl. Finally, Kristen Wiig plays Cher to Ben Stiller’s Sonny on a final cover alongside Chris Rock, doing a Nipsey Russell thing, and Jerry Seinfeld, decked out in a Nehru jacket.

Apatow is only the third guest editor—after Bono, who guest-edited the Africa issue in July 2007, and Tom Ford, who guest-edited the Hollywood Portfolio in March 2006—since Graydon Carter became editor of the magazine 20 years ago. Says Carter in his editor’s letter this month, “It can reasonably be said that the comedy industry is booming these days, in movies, on television, and onstage. And who better to oversee an entire issue on the subject than one of the great impresarios of the business? . . . Judd was a terrific collaborator, brimming with suggestionsand infectious energy—precisely the sort of high-wattage, Hollywood-style enthusiasm that can alternately excite you and drive you a bit crazy.”

Conan O’Brien, Lena Dunham, Zach Galifianakis, Steve Martin, Mel Brooks, and Carl Reiner are just some of the legends past, present, and future that Apatow corralled for the Comedy Portfolio. Louis C.K. answers the Proust Questionnaire, and Jimmy Fallon stars in our Out to Lunch column.

I cannot WAIT to get my hands on this issue! Looooove it!


Will Ferrell calls Kristen Stewart a ‘Tramp-ire’.

Maybe it’s just me, ok I know it’s not, but I was actually pretty upset that Kristen Stewart cheated on her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson.

But it appears it also ruffled the feathers of comedian Will Ferrell. Well probably not really, but it was still funny!

Here’s what Will had say about the duo breaking up.

“What they had was so special,” the comedian, 45, deadpanned to Conan O’Brien on Thursday night’s Conan. (Watch the video below.) “You don’t even know what they had. They were in love, and she just threw it all away.”

His tongue-in-cheek concerns continued: “I just don’t know if there was anything I could have done to prevent it. And I don’t know what it means to the Twilight franchise. I just don’t know.”

If it brings Ferrell any comfort, the Breaking Dawn: Part 2 costars (and, now, exes) are still set to join the rest of the cast to promote the final installment of the vampire smash (although sources tell People Pattinson is “heartbroken and angry” with Stewart for her affair with her married director Rupert Sanders).

Still, like a scorned lover, Ferrell had some not-so-nice things to say about Stewart, 22 (all in good fun, of course!): “She is a tramp-ire. That’s what she is.”

VIDEO: Will Ferrell appears on Conan O’Brien as Ron Burgundy to confirm ‘Anchorman 2’ is coming!

Last night Will Ferrell dropped by Conan O’Brien’s talk show, in character as Ron Burgundy. He announced that Paramount Pictures has officially given the thumbs up to an ‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy’ sequel, the popular 2004 comedy.

He played a little flute, and made fun of Conan before making his announcement. “As of oh-nine-hundred hours Mountain Time, Paramount Pictures and myself, Ronald Joseph Aaron Burgundy, have come to terms on a sequel for ‘Anchorman.’ It is official: There will be a sequel to ‘Anchorman.'”

It’s been rumored for years that an ‘Anchorman’ sequel was coming, and now we’re finally getting confirmation!

No word on the release date for the sequel, but Deadline reports that the movie will see Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner reprise their roles from the original. They also indicate that Judd Apatow will again produce and McKay will direct the film.

Ferrell’s decision to make his exclusive announcement on “Conan” is hardly surprising, as the “Casa de mi Padre” star has a long history with the talk show host. After appearing on some classic bits on O’Brien’s “Late Night,” Ferrell had the distinction of appearing as both the first and last guest on O’Brien’s “Tonight Show,” and even performed “Free Bird” to close out the show’s shortlived run. When O’Brien went to TBS, Ferrell personally shaved off Conan’s beard in a high-profile moment.

Colin Quinn isn’t bitter or anything.

Colin Quinn took to his Twitter page this morning to ramble off a strange series of comments regarding Will Ferrell. He’s implying Will has a drug problem, right?

Bitter – or just joking?
