More Cowbell

To celebrate Christopher Walken‘s birthday today, here is the famous ‘More Cowbell‘ sketch from Saturday Night Live in 2000.

It depicts the (fictionalised) recording of Blue Öyster Cult‘s classic rock song (Don’t Fear) The Reaper and Walken plays a legendary music producer who suggests they include more of a certain instrument.

Will Ferrell wrote and stars in the sketch, which also features Jimmy Fallon.

Interview: Will Ferrell and John C Reilly on Step Brothers

Step Brothers is the new comedy starring Will Ferrell and John C Reilly as two step brothers who still live at home and make life difficult for their parents.

I spoke with them recently about their previous film Talledega Nights, how Paul Thomas Anderson almost ended up as a producer on Anchorman, how George W Bush inspired this film and their possible future collaborations.
