A message from McKay and Ferrell
So we just rapped our newest movie “Step Brothers” and we wanted tocheck in with FOD about a bunch of stuff. First off, the shoot wasgreat. We had an insanely good cast. Kathryn Hahn is a stone coldgenius and Rob Riggle, Richard Jenkins, Mary Steenbergen and AdamScott were all so good it was unsettling. John C Reilly – aka The RiverDog – is in a class of his own: fantastic actor who's also one of thefunniest people you'll ever meet. Now it's on the edit room where it looks like our first cut could befour hours long (no joke). So long as there's a good hundred minutesin there we're happy.
We also want to give a belated thanks to the FOD team for shootingseveral videos with us on set. Green Team, Apatow announcement andlike three others that haven't been posted yet were all shot in lessthan an hour and on our schedule cause that's how Amy and her peopledo it.
On a quick side point: Green Team is not making fun of theenvironmental movement. We wanted a benign cause that was beyond muchreproach for the slow reveal that they're huge creeps and criminals.We saw some comments along the lines of “way to stick it to theenviro-nuts!!” I hate to break it to these people but it's not 1982and the need for clean energy is the most real issue we're facing as aspecies. So go back to thinking we're hippy tree huggers. Please.
We also wanted to encourage comics and sketch groups to set up theirhome pages on FOD. Lot's of us industry jerks do look at them and it'sa good way to get your name and material out there.
Coming up soon:l Landlord approaches 50 million hits. We're trying to come up with somethingcool for that… Any ideas for give aways or prizes or PR events?
To quote the last line of the movie Casino, “and that's that…”
