Where there’s a Will (Ferrell), there’s not a tweeter.
According to the comic actor’s publicist, Matt Labov, his client isn’t the guy behind the fake Paramount twitter account, which materialized about two weeks ago, right around the time it looked like “Anchorman 2” wasn't going to happen.
“There are at least 4 fake 'Will Ferrell' pages, none of which are actually him. The actor Will Ferrell did not 'tweet' these and it is unfortunate that Twitter, which purports to have authenticity and legitimacy, still cannot fix the continual issue of impostors,” Labov said.
Just so we're clear: Labov is "saying that Will Ferrell himself does not have a Twitter page nor does he have anything to do with this Paramount page in any way, shape or form.”
In fact, Ferrell said in an interview last year with Showbiz Spy that he got so criticized for the lack of humor in his tweets, that he was scared off from it.
So why do folks think Ferrell is behind it? Mainly because of tweets like this: “To all who are upset about us not green lighting Anchorman 2, we at Paramount say screw you! We have more reboots to fund instead!!” and “To all writers looking to pitch any original movie ideas to us, please submit them to the nearest garbage can in your vicinity.”
I can't afford Adam Sandler... of well... =(
Will is the poor man's Adam Sandler
I like his movies, but not his stand up. He was great on SNL... come of the best characters ever: Cheerleaders, George W., the guy in the hot tub... awesome.
@I like to read....you are really missing out on some amazing work then. No Blues Brothers? No Lost in Translation? No Royal Tennenbaums? No movies starring Robert Downey Jr or Billy Crystal? Missing out on all the 'Vacation' movies, all the brat pack movies movies with Anthony Michael Hall...No 'Spinal Tap' or 'Waiting for Guffman'? I could on, but I'd only feel end up feeling worse that you've never seen some of these great movies.
Will is awesome. That is all.
I want to ride a furry tractor.
I am a 27 year old female...and I find Will HILARIOUS. Talladega Nights and StepBrothers are 2 of my all time fave movies...I laugh everytime I watch those. I adored him in Elf. Old School was crazy awesome...Those types of comedy movies may not be for everyone, but don't trash someone just because you don't approve of his acting style or his movies.
WHO CARE Will Ferrell is a no talent hack
LOL Mary! Ba-zinga! Oh Sheldon love is everywhere. XD
As a matter of policy, I never see any film that stars an alum of SNL.
Just a bunch of haters here.
Will Ferrell has made me laugh many times and for that I say thank you Will!
Not all movies or actors have to change the world.
All these Will haters should tell us who they think is funny.
I personally was excited about the idea of anchorman 2.
I would like to suggest rachy do some research. Afterwards, please find someone of value to find amusing.
This guy is a tool. How anyone finds him funny is beyond me.
Wow, people are really dogging Will Ferrell. It's crazy. I think he's crazy smart and funny. His stuff on Funny Or Die is great, especially Bat Fight. Anchorman was funny. He was funny in Old School. And almost every character he played on SNL made me belly laugh like no on else. If I had to guess, I'd say the reason people are anti-Ferrell right now is because you're all a bunch of sheep and he made one movie that bombed. I still think he's really funny and I can't wait to see his next flick. But then again, I have the ability to think for myself.
OK, I figured it out... I'm actually Andy Kaufman, and Tony Clifton AND Will Ferrell are both my intellectual property. Also, I am still alive, and me and DeVito are talking about making an updated version of Taxi, but we're gonna get Emo Phillips to play Tony Danzas' role, just to keep up with the times.
Will here, sorry to those who don't like me or my brand of humor, but I just can't help myself, really. I don't see the value in tweeting except to get stupid people upset over nothing, but for some, it's all they have. Me? I have one heckova career and I make people laugh, I can't help myself.
Ahhhhh, so toDAY is "Slow News Day"! Let me mark my calendar ...
Not a fan.
Who is this Will guy? Is he famous?
There once was a man who just couldn't quit, dopeman please can I get another hit.
Blasphemy! Will Ferrell could kick any of your guys' ass any day of the week! And who the fudge is Tony Clifton? You guys can suck it!
Man...my *ss hurts from Tony Clifton.
Twitter, FB, Myspace often takes the time away from friends, family, and work aka real life.
I'm sorry... What I MEANT to say was, I'm Tony Clifton, and I kicked Ferrels *ss last night. Or something like that. :)
Didn't mean Tony Clifton was funny. I meant Will Farrell doesn't have to stoop to the level that Kaufman did for a laugh. The baseball stunt got a reaction but not many laughs. Didn't mean to hurt your feelings there bluenote by the way, I thought the landlady Pearl was pure genius. Pure.
I am Will Ferrel, and Tony Clifton is a hack. I had dinner with Tony Clifton last night, and he couldn't have gotten me to laugh with the help of drugs or money. Now, who is this 'Kaufman' guy you speak of?
It could be Will Farrell doing it all. Remember Andy Kaufman? He did things that were totally off the wall. Some of it was truly funny and some of it was weird. It seems Farrell took a page out of Kaufman's book when he pulled the baseball stunt recently. Watch the movie Man on the Moon and draw your own comparison. Farrell is funny but he is no Tony Clifton.
Uh, who cares? Will Farrell is just another of the 30-something crowd who really can't act his way out of a paper sack, but for some reason, attracts the brain-dead and terminally inebriated to his movies.
what is tweet? sounds like a drug.
PK- you need any aloe vera for that burn? Nice.
Get a life people. Like the revival of Anchorman means anything to anyone. Not his best effort!
In fac t the picture is really the drummer from the red hot chili peppers who is really the alter ego of will Ferrell. they are the same person. He is a good drummer by the way, not so funny since SNL though. But then again...who is.
Ferrell is for losers, another no name no talent idiot that Hollywood and the public made a millionaire!
Yeah. Twitter is for losers. Winners make comments on cnn.com about losers on twitter.
Twitter is for losers
Which moron actually reads...Tweets.
There are a lot of fake twitter accounts where people use a famous person's name. If it does not have the words "Verified Account" – don't trust it.
If the tweets have been funny at any point in the last 5 years, you know it's not Ferrell.
It's clearly the aliens using mind control...
$100 says it's really Ferrell behind all of this, and his folks are just trying to downplay his stupid drunken behaviour.
