One of my favorite Internet time-wasters is Reddit’s "Ask Me Anything" feature. The format is simple: users submit questions to an individual with some remarkable or interesting characteristic. And sometimes, even celebrities get involved and offer a few moments of their time...

Paul Rudd will face off against Amy Poehler on Parks and Recreation

Now that the 2012 presidential primaries have kicked off, I find myself wishing that we might someday have a candidate who’s earnest, charismatic, committed, compassionate and honest. Kind of like, oh, I don’t know, Parks and Recreation’s Leslie Knope. You won’t find...

Watch Will Ferrell in a teaser for his Spanish comedy flick ‘Casa de mi Padre’
