The title of this post is a little on the nose, but I make no apologies; there was really no other way to aptly describe what happens in the above video, the newest edition of Zach Galifianakis's esteemed Funny or Die-based interview series, "Between Two Ferns." Get More »
If you are a part of the University of Maryland's Delta Gamma sorority, last week you received what can only be described as a scary, threatening, borderline violent email from one of your executive board members about how much you suck, a letter which was leaked to and subsequently thoroughly enjoyed by the rest of the human race.

Who needs Ashton Kutcher when you've got Justin Long?
Kutcher's Steve Jobs biopic, "Jobs," was supposed to open this Friday but got pulled from the calendar. And that Jobs biopic that Aaron Sorkin is supposed to write will happen ... some day. Which means that the first official (well, official-ish) Jobs flick out the gate is "iSteve," produced by Funny or Die.
Justin Long, who's long (ha! Funny or Die, after all!) been a slinger of Apple products in his "Hi, I'm a PC / And I'm a Mac" commercials, plays the Apple co-founder and CEO, with Jorge Garcia playing the part of Steve Wozniak and — in a bit of pitch-perfect casting — James Urbaniak as Microsoft guru Bill Gates.
Watch the trailer above, and watch the entire 78-minute movie at Funny or Die. And just think ... all of it actually happened.
Seth Rogen successfully launched Hilarity For Charity, an event that benefits Alzheimer's disease research. What does this mean? It means he doesn't have to do anything charitable again for the rest of his life.
In fact, the "This Is the End" star can now reset the balance of the universe by engaging in decidedly uncharitable acts, such as robbing convenience stores, not picking up his dog's poop and giving a little kid a cigarette. The possibilities are endless, actually — he can make meth with Bryan Cranston, indulge in a heroin-fueled threesome and play Russian Roulette with bloodthirsty revolutionaries.

Christian Bale absolutely killed (PUN PUN PUN) the Patrick Bateman role in "American Psycho" (2000), arguably to the point that it's simply impossible to imagine anyone else as the transcendent character. On this much I presume we can basically all agree.
That was, of course, before we were given the pleasure of seeing an object of Bateman's obsession, Huey Lewis, in the role, and now we're having second thoughts. As our fraternal twin sisters at Moviefone originally discovered, Funny or Die released a quick two-minute video featuring Lewis convincingly axe-murdering an equal-parts clueless and helpless 'Weird Al' Yankovic, who also predictably chainsaws his role as well. (Okay, that pun works less well.)
This was apparently produced to celebrate the 30-year anniversary of Huey Lewis and the News' "Sports," the album that Bateman deconstructs so brilliantly (and, uh, psychotically) in "American Psycho." Oh, and here's the original scene with Bale and Jared Leto to refresh your memory, as it has been 13 damn years since the film's release:
Shots fired! Shots fired! Shots fired at "Ryan Gosling's Acting Range"!
Indeed, some clever fellows at Funny or Die took a pretty vicious (if super funny) shot at Ryan Gosling with "Ryan Gosling's Acting Range," which takes advantage of the double entendre inherent in those four words to hilarious degrees (the "range" is an actual place instead of a marker of Gosling's acting versatility. I know, burn.)
In the video, a man dressed as Ryan Gosling but looking closer to Thomas Lennon explains that at the range, you can learn how to become "gangster squadders, boxers, drivers, and driving boxers," and learn how to be from various areas of New York City. They kind of have him there, I guess. Get More »
In this "extended cut" from "Zero Dark Thirty," we're given an insight into what happened before the military unit that eventually captured and killed Osama Bin Laden actually got the job done. As it turns out, there were a lot of homemade sound effects, including the ol' "clip clop." And baiting name-changes. And, oh yes, an adorable puppy. It's true: "Everyone likes a puppy."
Would you have guessed that the guys hot on the trail of America's most wanted terrorist were actually talking baseball cards and pizza toppings? Probably not, if you've seen the flick. And, obviously, Jessica Chastain's hardass CIA agent, Maya, would never have let this sh*t fly, which is why it's a Funny Or Die original instead of the real thing.
Not that we wouldn't watch. We'd totally watch.
This is perhaps the most stressful game ever invented.
The personal tastes of Drew Barrymore are revealed in this high-stakes snippet from Funny or Die's "Billy on the Street with Billy Eichner." Our host spews off rapid-fire questions regarding the "Charlie's Angels" star that Will Ferrell must answer correctly, though her exact feelings toward naps, blueberries and Robert Downey Jr. probably can't be found on any Wikipedia page.

The Internet has many dangers, not the least of which is it could completely render the "secret" part of being a secret agent null and void.
Kellan Lutz attempts to channel Channing Tatum by trying his hand at comedy as Agent Hashtag, the world's deadliest covert operative whose dangerous addiction to social media kind of removes that whole "covert" part. Get More »
"Is he dead?" "I don't know, my dear, but then again ... To Have and To Gold."
Funny or Die swoops in (better late than never) with their own take on James Bond Mania with this lost Bond film written, produced, directed by and starring a chap named Gil Edmundberry (Chris Kattan). Get More »
