Podcast #160: Walk Hard a Frat Pack Movie(?)
Walk Hard has is out and so is use of the "F-Word" for the movie and it's star, John C. Reilly. No, not that "F" word, we're talking about Frat Pack. Is Walk Hard a Frat Pack movie? Is JCR in the Pack? There's a controversy brewing!

This podcast features some music from Dewey Cox, including the revised version of "Walk Hard" from Monday Night Football, plus some of the more hilarious songs from the soundtrack.

We also have audio from Ben Stiller's appearance on Elmo's Christmas Countdown and a profane "Alex Trebec" played by Alex Trebec and not Will Ferrell.

Thanks to Rick Duran, Josh Watts, Greg Mariotti, and Jennifer Spaulding for production support.

Podcast #154: The Comebacks Interview with David Koechner and Carl Weathers
David Koechner is best known to fans of this site as Champ Kind from Anchorman and Todd Packer on The Office (Editor’s note: True Frat Pack fans also love his deleted scene from the Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny DVD.) With roles in Talladega Nights, The 40 Year-Old Virgin, Thank You For Smoking, Snakes on a Plane, and his own short-lived TV series The Naked Trucker and T-Bones Show, in addition upcoming roles in Semi-Pro, Walk Hard and Get Smart, it was only a matter of time before Koechner was given a shot at a starring role. In The Comebacks, Koechner plays a bumbling coach blindly guiding his new football team to victory. Veteran actor and former pro-football player Carl Weathers (Rocky, Predator, Happy Gilmore) plays the rival coach in this spoof of nearly every recent sports film.

The Frat Pack Tribute had a chance to sit down with both actors for a roundtable discussion about The Comebacks, in addition to other topics such as the soon-to-be-filmed The Goods: The Don Ready Story (starring Jeremy Piven, produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay), the return of Todd Packer to The Office, athlete worship and Koechner’s recent shoulder surgery, as he showed up for this interview with his left arm in a sling.

Mario writes, "I love this one, I took it afterward, kind of on the fly. Nicole Kidman got the star treatment like no one else, even causing a delay the screening, and I kind of felt sorry for her, living up to that image of her. This pic catches her off guard, and I love that look between her and Jennifer."

Podcast #140: The Ten Review / Old School Score
Paul Rudd is both actor and producer in The Ten, a new independent comedy that is now open. We have a short review of the movie that's definitely worth seeing (), though it's not the same kind of humor as typical Frat Pack fare.

It's truly a crime that Theodore Shapiro's best movie scores were never released on CD. We try to rectify that by presenting the Old School score in it's entirety. That's our Main Event this week, and of course we have the latest Frat Pack news.

Podcast #115: "Arnett Has Seen the Circle" - Semi-Pro Set Visit
It's a different kind of podcast episode this time. Our Senior Editor Rick Duran visited the set of Will Ferrell's upcoming basketball comedy, Semi-Pro, and sits down to tell us about it. He has interesting tidbits about the movie such as the cast and crew's respect for Will Ferrell's improv skills, a recent Owen Wilson set visit, how Woody Harrelson is a fan favorite, and that Steve Carell really is a nice guy.

Oh, and Rick was able to talk to Semi-Pro and Blades of Glory star Will Arnett who dropped a bombshell; he's seen our Frat Pack Circle of Trust. And he gave Rick a good-natured hard time about his placement!
