WHERE'S THERE'S A WILL, THERE'S A NEW WACKY COMEDY

You can blame Will Ferrell and Adam McKay for those precious work hours spent on Funnyordie.com. The actor and screenwriter/director created the online comedy goldmine in 2007, giving us one of the funniest viral videos in history, "The Landlord" (pint-size terror, McKay's real-life daughter, bullies Ferrell about paying the rent). The relationship between the two dates back to Saturday Night Live in the '90s, followed by the Ferrell vehicles Anchorman , Talladega Nights and Step Brothers . As part of TimesTalks -- which features New York Times writers moderating discussions with celebs and artists (past events have including Helen Mirren, Diane von Furstenberg, Nora Ephron, Rachael Ray and the cast of Lost ) -- Lynn Hirschberg chats with Ferrell and McKay about their newest film, The Others. Hirschberg, if you recall, recently got the ire of singer M.I.A. and, more infamously, Courtney Love after the 1992 Vanity Fair interview. Clearly, she knows a thing or two about crazy girls.
