Will Ferrell Confesses His Cinematic Crushes
Find out who makes our favorite anchorman Will Ferrell giddy in Lynn Hirschberg’s latest Screen Test.
Released on 1/27/2014
My two cinematic crushes are Marion Cotillard
and Harry Dean Stanton.
How odd is that?
In the first script Adam McKay and I every wrote,
called August Blowout, which was a Glengarry Glen Ross
meets a car dealership, and we had this old codger salesman,
I forget his name, and we wrote it for Harry Dean Stanton,
and he actually came and did the read-through for us,
to try to convince Paramount to make the movie,
which they said no to.
But he lit up a cigarette and smoked during the entire
read-through, which you're not supposed to do.
But no one was going to tell Harry Dean Stanton
you can't smoke on the lot at Paramount.
It was fantastic.
