Will Ferrell Shows Up as Little Debbie on “The Tonight Show”
So, as far as we can see, Will Ferrell does more movies just so he can do whatever he wants on talk shows.
Apparently, following Get Hard, Ferrell signed a contract to be Little Debbie and promote Little Debbie snacks. He showed up in full Little Debbie garb last night on The Tonight Show and committed to it for the whole interview.
With such dedication, it’s no mystery as to why acting royalty Meryl Streep has a crush on him.
Meryl Streep Set to Play One of the Worst Opera Singers of All Time
Even with her turn and a capable singing voice in Mamma Mia, acting demigod Meryl Streep’s next project will have her playing the role of Florence Foster Jenkins in a biopic directed by award winning director Stephen Frears.
Jenkins, a real figure in 1940s New York high society, was widely regarded as a terrible singer, but she got to sing opera as a career as she was a wealthy heiress. Audiences still turned turning out for her performances, presumably to see how bad it really was.
The story will follow her manager/partner keeping up the illusion that she has a great voice, so, we think there should be a good bit of comedy to come out of this movie.
Also, if you’re wondering how bad a singer Jenkins was, notice how you’ll cringe at her botching Mozart.
