Stay Classy, Manhattan: New Anchorman 2 Trailer Hits the Streets [Video]
The News Team has re-assembled! The first full trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is finally here. While the trailer makes it feel like a day hasn't passed since 2004, it tells us that years have certainly passed since the events of the first film, and it is now the '80s -- as evidenced by Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" serving as the backing track.Read on...
The Office Writer Mindy Kaling Tweeting Michael Scott Stories We’ll Never See
As everyone knows, the current season of NBC's The Office will be Steve Carrell's last, and he is supposedly leaving one month before the season finale. This is significant, of course, because he's the "main" character of the show, and whether or not you love him or can't stand even a nanosecond of his screen time, the show most likely won't be the same without him, leading most fans to wonder whether or not the show can even survive. Regardless of the uncertain future, show writer Mindy Kaling, who also plays character Kelly Kapoor, tweeted some fun Michael Scott ideas that were passed on, or could've been in his future had he stayed on the show. Head on past the break to see some of the fun ideas, and to feel sad about the character's departure.Read on...

Kelly Kapoor Says Dwight Schrute Could Be the Next Michael Scott
As Steve Carrell continues to insist that he's leaving The Office to the point where we all actually are starting to believe it, a front-runner has emerged to take his place: None other than Rainn Wilson, whom you may know better as Dwight Schrute. Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello got this tasty tidbit from one of the show's stars/producers:
“I’d love to see Rain Wilson in that position,” says co-executive producer/co-star Mindy Kaling, who snagged a much-deserved Emmy nominee for co-writing last season’s four-star Jim/Pam wedding episode. “Dwight has become so nuanced — you actually care about him now. I think if [we did a good job laying the groundwork] this coming season he would be a fantastic boss. “But that’s my dream,” she adds. “It certainly hasn’t been approved by people that are more powerful than me and who make those kind of decisions.”Kaling, who plays Kelly Kapoor on The Office, acknowledged that she'd really prefer not to have Carrell leave at all, but if that's the way of things, this is the best of all possible alternatives.Read on...
The Carrell Corral: Can This Please be Real?
Tonight's Colbert Report began with possibly the greatest cold open ever: In fact, it was not The Colbert Report at all, but a new program, titled the Carrell Corral, hosted by geek god Steve Carrell. Alas, while there's some delightfully loopy shock questioning and some quality Old West pew-pewing, it turns out to be but a dream. But there's a silver lining: During Colbert's most enjoyable interview with Carrell later in the program, they revive the excellent "Even Stephven" hypercharged debating sketch from the days when the Steves were castmates on The Daily Show.
