will Ferrell ryan reynolds late night switch, will ferrell ryan reynolds swap late night guest spots

Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds swap late night guest spots.

Who wore it better, Ryan Reynolds as Will Ferrell, or Will Ferrell as Ryan Reynolds? The Hollywood friend duo pulled a fun switcheroo on their late night guest spots, reminding us once again that they are national treasures.

The plan was: Reynolds would appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to promote his new Netflix movie "Red Notice." Ferrell would be plugging his new Apple TV+ series "The Shrink Next Door" on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon. You know, standard protocol.

Reynolds and Ferrell had something different in mind. They each told their respective hosts that, unfortunately, Ryan-slash-Will couldn't make it, but that they would each "fill in" for each other and of course promote each other's projects.


As Jimmy Fallon introduced Will Ferrell, Reynolds waltzed out as "Don't Fear the Reaper" played (cause, you know, more cowbell). He "just happened" to be walking his dog near the studio.

After calling Ferrell a "late night talk show slut" and assuring us all that his sex life with Blake Lively is "totally normal," Reynolds adamantly warned Fallon that he would not be talking about "Red Notice." He even threatened Fallon with a backhand if the title were mentioned.

He instead pushed to play a clip from "The Shrink Next Door." After calling it "something like an Ant Man sequel … it's Ant Man adjacent." I mean, the series does star Paul Rudd as well. So maybe Reynolds is spot on.

Meanwhile, Ferrell strolled up to Jimmy Kimmel sporting Star Wars pajama bottoms, mentioning that he too lives close to the studio. Inside Hollywood's Magic Castle, in fact. And then he proceeded to fail hilariously at a magic trick.

Ferrell chatted with Jimmy Kimmel about everything from Halloween costumes for his (Reynolds') three daughters to Canadian politics. Oh and let's not forget about the lovely bit where Kimmel showed a picture of Reynolds' ripped physique, and Ferrell lifted his own shirt to compare.

Audiences also got to find out that Blake Lively is a "great cook," capable of making oatmeal and "killer nachos."

While talking about "Red Notice," Ferrell noted that everyone was wearing suits, so you at least knew the movie was going to be "classy." Though Ferrell said he hadn't yet seen the movie, he still gave it a plug joking that "I think it's gonna be good. I mean, we hope, right?"

Ferrell went on to say, "God, I could eat that Ryan Reynolds up with a spoon." Find yourself a friend who has that kind of passion for you.

Because Reynolds is a master at authentic and savvy marketing, I'm guessing that this idea was at least partially his. His genius has been behind other clever marketing moves for "Deadpool," Mint Mobile and Match.com.

And it's not like this is the first time a Ferrell-Reynolds comedy combo struck viral gold. Remember earlier this year when they had their own rendition of Grace Kelly on TikTok? If you somehow missed out on this delight, watch below.



Though (sadly) there is no future project slated that has both Reynolds and Ferrell starring, you can watch their Christmas movie musical "Spirited," which they made over the summer. Yes, you read that right. Ryan Reynolds. Will Ferrell. Singing. Together. The world is once again a beautiful place.

Every holiday season, millions of kids send letters asking for everything from a new bike to a pony. Some even make altruistic requests such as peace on Earth or helping struggling families around the holidays.

Writer/Director Richard Curtis and Emma Thompson

Since its release in 2003, the Christmas-themed rom-com "Love Actually" captured hearts and became one of the most beloved holiday films of all time. True to its title, the film celebrated love—all kinds of love—as it actually is, and managed to maintain optimism without being overly saccharine. This, coupled with a truly stellar ensemble, made it so well received among audiences, despite the mixed reviews from critics.

Nearly 20 years later, the film’s writer and director Richard Curtis (who also brought us "Notting Hill" and "Bridget Jones’ Diary") reflects back on why it might have meant so much to so many people. As an artist who has made a name for himself creating enduring love stories, perhaps it’s no surprise that he feels it’s something the world is in constant need of.

A metal detector hobbyist looking for treasure on the beach.

Joseph Cook, 37, is a popular metal detectorist on social media where he shares videos of the many treasures he finds on Florida beaches. But what’s even more engaging than his finds is the incredible excitement he brings to the hobby. It’s like watching Steve Irwin, but with a Florida accent.

Not only is his attitude infectious but he also makes a point of doing good when he finds lost items. He wears a necklace around his neck with multiple rings that he’s found to remind him of his mission to return lost treasures.

Recently, he told SWNS that he dug up "the biggest diamond I ever found” on the beach. "When I first found it I thought it would just be a nickel, but then I dug it up and it was just this big old diamond and platinum ring," he said.

Someone asked who the female voice of Morgan Freeman was

Celebrities are known for different things, they all seem to have their niche but Morgan Freeman has cemented his place as the ultimate recognizable voice. In fact, if you ask some people who the voice of God is, Freeman will come to mind with his deep distinctive voice.

When thinking back, there doesn't seem to be a woman's voice that you immediately associate with that divine superpower to captivate listeners. Before Freeman was the voice of God, there was James Earl Jones, the voice of Darth Vader. With his deep hearty bass-like voice, even Jones' laugh is so distinctive that you automatically attribute it to him.

Someone on Reddit decided to find out what female actor people believed had the ability to instantly step into the shoes of someone like Freeman as far as voice is concerned. Some of the answers were pretty surprising while others, you can instantly see how they'd fall into that category.
