Will Ferrell takes over 'the Office'

It's time to face facts, "Office" fans. Michael Scott's time with us is coming to an end very soon. Fortunately his (one assumes, temporary) replacement, Deangelo Vickers, is played by Will Ferrell.

Dunder Mifflin's past and its possible future met at a bar, not realizing whom they were meeting (and it took a long, long time for them to figure it out, even while talking to each other on the phone). No matter though, since they immediately hit it off, and the new boss was introduced in classic Michael Scott style: "Without further ado... let's all start clapping."

Deangelo's arrival had a different effect on everyone in the office: Darryl and Kevin transformed themselves, Kelly hit on him right away, the Halperts tried to use their baby to bond with him, and poor Andy was suddenly the "Office Funny Guy," and when he ran out of material started doing physical comedy.

'Glee' to cover Rebecca Black's 'Friday'

Surprise singing sensation Rebecca Black may have her share of critics, but don't count the cast of "Glee" among them. In fact, the students of McKinley High will be performing her viral song "Friday" on an upcoming episode of the Fox series.

Though Black's video features the teen heading out for a night on the town with her female pals, it won't be the "Glee" girls who'll be singing her song, reports Vulture. Instead, Artie (Kevin McHale), Sam (Chord Overstreet), and Puck (Mark Salling) will take on the tune about weekend partying and fun.

As Marquee previously reported, "Friday" is part of a $2,000 package Black's mother paid to Ark Music Factory, an L.A.-based production company for aspiring teen singers. The video, released on YouTube, has gone on to rack up more than 100 million hits — and just as many criticisms. FULL POST

Trailer arrives for 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'

The trailer for the upcoming “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” has been released, and we're curious if we're the only ones pleasantly surprised by it.

James Franco stars as scientist Will Rodman in the "Planet of the Apes" prequel, and as the camera pans down a desolate hallway filled with flickering lights, the inescapable actor tells us that they’ve discovered a drug that “allows the brain to repair itself.”

But the drug does more than that - it also “radically increases brain function” and improves intelligence, perhaps a little too well. And then, after we see all the medical testing that Rodman's been doing on his ape friends...well, we bet you can guess what happens.
