Ferrell changed pace when he starred opposite Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson in the 2006 drama "Stranger Than Fiction," which earned him a Golden Globe nomination.

Ferrell returns to film this summer in the adventure comedy "Land of the Lost," a big-screen remake of the 1970s TV series.

    REVIEW: 'The Lego Movie' ★★★&#9733

    UCLA alum Will Forte feels sorry for undereducated USC fans Saturday
    As I sat down to write this piece about the UCLA-USC rivalry from the UCLA perspective, I was given word that the L.A. Times had not yet found anyone from USC to write on their behalf.  This led me to two natural conclusions.  The first: the USC...

    2014 Dodge Durango R/T delivers custom-made versatility
    The SUV holds a dear if not precarious place in the American automotive heart. In the '90s it overtook the minivan as the suburban utility vehicle of choice. In the new millennium, with oil price uncertainty and a butt-kicking recession, sales of SUVs...

    'Anchorman 2' box office: What happened?
