Will Ferrell's "Anchorman" sequel's subtitle might be "The Legend Continues" but it should probably be re-dubbed "A Series Of Potentially Distracting Cameo Appearances" (although that would be really hard to fit on the marquee). Kanye West, Tina Fey, Kristin Wiig, Nicole Kidman, Sacha Baron Cohen, Amy Poehler (whom "Anchorman" die hards will remember had a sizable role in the first film, only to see her entire subplot deleted from the final product), Liam Neeson, John C. Reilly, Jim Carrey and Harrison Ford have all shot cameos for the hotly anticipated sequel (also: an animatronic shark).
The latest celebrity to be roped into this cameo feeding frenzy? None other than Canadian rapper Drake.

The "porn star name game" is a time-honored tradition in America.
It's a game pretty much anyone can play, depending on the rules — we employ the First Name: First Pet, Last Name: Street You Grew Up On method (our apologies to those with allergies, maybe you had a goldfish?). And the results are, without fail, hilarious.
We asked 100 of our favorite movie stars in Hollywood — including Emma Watson, Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, Ryan Gosling, Paul Rudd, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Katie Holmes, Jon Hamm, Emma Stone and Neil Patrick Harris — for their porn star names. They did not let us down. Click through the gallery for all 100.

This week, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner reprise their beloved "Twilight" characters on screen one last time in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," the final chapter in the young-adult series based on the books by Stephenie Meyer.
Things have been pretty hush hush lately in the "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" department, but today not one but two major news bits about the long-awaited sequel have come down.
While the first installment saw anchor Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), weatherman Brick (Steve Carell), Champ (David Koechner), Brian (Paul Rudd) and Veronica (Christina Applegate) holdin' it down in sunny San Diego, Channel Four's pack of weirdos just wouldn't be news folk worth a darn if New York City wasn't their Mecca. So, writer Adam McKay is sending them to the east coast this go-round for some Big Apple-style funzies. Get More »
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• We wonder if "Les Miserables" star Eddie Redmayne had to sing for his new role. The handsome up-and-comer is officially joining Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis for "Jupiter Ascending," the top-secret sci-fi film from the Wachowski Siblings. [Heat Vision]
• Samantha Barks just can't stop singing! Eddie Redmayne's "Les Miserables" co-star is in talks (or, rather, in songs) to go "Walking on Sunshine," a musical set to '80s pop ditties about a mother and daughter who fall in love with the same man while vacationing in Spain. '80s pop star Kylie Minogue has already been cast (we're assuming as the mom, which makes us feel old). [The Wrap] Get More »
For decades, video game fans have loved to stomp, shoot and otherwise cream the various bad guys that crop up in their way. Try to keep us from eating them there dots? Sorry, Blinky, but it's curtains for you.
But just how do video game bad guys feel about this neverending cycle?
That's the premise behind the new animated hit "Wreck-It Ralph" — and as the first trailer shows, this is one film that's ready to take you to the next level. Get More »
What does it take to get people to a play these days? How about George Clooney, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Martin Sheen, John C. Reilly, and a promising theatrical newcomer named Brad Pitt.
All these celebs came out in force to participate in a live benefit reading/YouTube broadcast of Academy Award-winning "Milk" screenwriter Dustin Lance Black's play "8," based on California's monumental Perry v. Schwarzenegger trial, which ruled the same-sex marriage-banning bill Proposition 8 unconstitutional in February of this year.
The reading was directed by filmmaker/noted political activist/one-time "Meathead" Rob Reiner, no stranger to charged courtroom drama after "A Few Good Men" and "Ghosts of Mississippi," who is also planning a documentary about Prop 8. Get More »
"We Need to Talk About Kevin" could easily tie with the new "Twilight" film for most effective form of cinematic birth control this year. The psychological thriller rests firmly on Oscar winner Tilda Swinton’s steady shoulders as she suspects the worst about her son -- that he could be an evil, dangerous sociopath.
To put it lightly, Kevin isn’t your typical 15-year old. Ezra Miller is cold as ice as Kevin, who collects computer viruses instead of stamps, excels in archery, challenges everyone who crosses him, and plays games like “Christmas Kidnapping” with his sweet-as-pie little sister. During one memorable dinner scene, Kevin predicts precisely how the evening’s mother-son bonding will unfold. He is at once brilliant, detached, and blunt. Get More »
They say the U.S. doesn't make things anymore -- that we've lost our way and are no longer No. 1.
Well, "they" are wrong. No country on Earth is capable of producing the quantity, quality and quantity of idiots that our fair land churns out with alarming regularity.
Affable favorite Paul Rudd continues the proud tradition of representing our country's most common commodity in "Our Idiot Brother," nwe on DVD and Blu-ray this week. But can he be stupid enough to join the ranks of elite morons, or does he still have a few more brain cells to kill? Let's review his imbecilic competition. Get More »
When your director is controversial fugitive from justice Roman Polanski, your film is pretty much guaranteed to have a level of carnage -- but the trailer for his latest film takes things to a whole new level.
Yes, the brand new trailer for the upcoming black comedy "Carnage" is here and judging from the all-star cast (Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz, Jodie Foster and John C. Reilly) it looks as though a little bit of carnage now and again is good for the soul. The soul of movie fans everywhere, that is. Get More »
