When you think of Will Ferrell, his long tenure as the master of over thirty dialects comes to mind first. Only then do you remember the funny man, the comedian from movies like the upcoming "Casa de mi Padre."
In preparation for the film, Mr. Ferrell spoke with dialect novice Josh Horowitz about the process of mastering your accent in a segment we like to call "Mastering Your Accents."
The legend dialectician covers all the topics you need to know about: his long and bitter rivalry with Meryl Streep, his many victories at the Voicey's. You'll even get a chance to hear the story of Mr. Ferrell's humble origins a simple boy doing a near perfect Italian accent.
You'd think that when the answer to all the questions is either "yes" or "no," an interview should always go off without a hitch. But sometimes guests on Josh Horowitz's "After Hours" interview program, "The Yes/No Show," just miss out on opportunities to do awesome pirate accents.
Stopping by "The Yes/No Show" in support of their new movie "Friends With Kids," Adam Scott and Megan Fox took the opportunity to answer a few "simple" questions that are supposed to have "simple" answers.
Lots of weird things happen around MTV Movies headquarters, like Idris Elba whipping our reporters into Olympic-level shape, or a murderous Elijah Wood claiming our offices for his own... but nothing, nothing, compares to what Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim of "Billion Dollar" fame put MTV's Josh Horowitz through at Sundance this past year.
The comedy duo brought all the awkwardness and lunacy they're known for to what was supposed to be a cozy, informative 10-minute chat. Heck, even Will Forte was along for the ride. We should have known that this would not be a straightforward interview. But "not straightforward" doesn't even begin to cover it. The video below is a super-cut of all the awkwardness that ensued when Tim and Eric dropped on our couch. Please enjoy — or as our good friend Tim Heidecker would say, "back to you."
"Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie" is available on VOD and playing in select theaters.
It's that time again, folks! We're back for another round of After Hours' "The Yes/No Show," and this time it's starring none other than the famous stars of the upcoming film "The Hunger Games." As you fans of "The Yes/No Show" will know, host Josh Horowitz offers fans an insightful look at their favorite stars that they might not have seen otherwise. The latest
victims guests are Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, who are arguably more excited about being on the show than anyone else we've ever seen.
So yes, you can call Lawrence "JLau" and Hutcherson "The Hutch." No, JLau doesn't think she can beat up one of "The Twilight Saga's" vampires. And also -- and perhaps most disturbingly -- both of "The Hunger Games" stars agreed that they would kill and eat Horowitz if they were to face off against him in a future Hunger Games. Maybe he should watch his back in future interviews?
There are many interesting facts about celebrities that won't be learned anywhere other than an MTV After Hours session. The same can be said during the latest "Would You Rather?" edition of MTV's hit segment featuring "Wanderlust" stars Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd. For instance, did you know that Aniston would totally be down to have sex with Megan Fox? Like, without hesitation. Also, where else are you going to see Rudd do a terrible Oprah Winfrey impression? Yes, these are the joys After Hours can provide for you.
Here's a taste of some of the other hard-hitting questions asked in the above video: Would Aniston rather have Justin Bieber or Robert Pattinson portray her in the biopic of her life? Would Rudd rather have sex with Betty White or George Clooney? And would Aniston rather pee or fart every time she laughs? The answers might surprise you. So what are you waiting for? I'm pretty sure we had you had "Aniston would totally be down to have sex with Megan Fox."
Stringer Bell. John Luther. Heimdall. Add Moreau to the mix, and you're looking at some of "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" actor Idris Elba's most recognizable roles to date. But the British actor is more than just a pretty face on the big screen. Indeed, Elba's true passion may very well lie in the realm of fitness instruction... particularly when it involves whipping journalists into superhero shape.
Elba did exactly that in the latest edition of After Hours, turning MTV Movies reporter Josh Horowitz into... well, we don't want to spoil the surprise. Exercise your own capacity for fitness in this instructional video with Elba and Horowitz below.
I enjoy "The Phantom Menace." I know I'm in a small club of people who don't think the first entry in the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy is wholesale trash. And I know it's an unpopular group to be a part of, but I stand by my membership. Sure, the first two hours are pretty much garbage, but then you get duel of the fates! Darth Maul with a double-edged lightsaber! It's so wonderful!
But Simon Pegg disagrees. He thinks there's nothing whatsoever to enjoy about "Phantom Menace." In the latest episode of After Hours, he does his best Red Letter Media impression and tears the 1999 "Star Wars" movie to shreds in a quick two-minute assault. It's hard to disagree with him on any of his points, really. But no amount of sense or logic will ever convince me that duel of the fates isn't awesome.
Hear all about Pegg's "Phantom Menace" vendetta in this week's After Hours.
MTV's After Hours has made a name for itself creating the highest quality late night entertainment around. But now, with the help of Ice T, the series could be making its big break into prime time programming.
Enter "Snowy River," which absolutely was definitely not shot on location at the Sundance Film Festival or anything like that (hint: okay maybe it was). Snowy River is a mysterious town with many terrifying murderers on the loose (you could get killed for playing peek-a-boo) and even more interesting inhabitants (just wait until you see the Inarticulate Twins). As the trailer teases, it will be a lot better than "NCIS"... we hope.
We're going to be up front with you right now: the main reason you should watch the latest After Hours, "American Talk: Ghost Protocol," is because you get to see Daniel Radcliffe punch MTV News' Josh Horowitz as hard as he can. Though Radcliffe has survived several incarnations of the show in the past, we felt he needed yet another challenge to prove that the "Harry Potter" star is certifiably American.
So strap on your Captain America mask and pull your American flag snuggie closer around you, because this time, things get serious.
When asked to think of the most adorable actor we could possibly come up with to guest star on After Hours' latest program, "Adorable Things," only one name could come to mind for the MTV Movies team: Michael Shannon.
The "Man of Steel" star has made a name for himself being cute and cuddly in projects like "Boardwalk Empire," "Revolutionary Road" and "Take Shelter." The lovable actor came on the show recently to have his cheeks pinched, side tickled and be barked at, and provide us with the best use of five minutes we've had all day.
Needless to say, if you're a fan of Shannon's work, this is not an After Hours to miss.
