Inside "Megamind"' with Will Ferrell, Tina Fey and David Cross
Megamind (voiced by Will Ferrell) is a big-headed villain whose biggest enemy is the hunky do-gooder Metro Man (voiced by Brad Pitt) in the animated family comedy Megamind. Directed by Tom McGrath, "Megamind" ponders what happens when the bad guy wins, the good guy's defeated, and the world is now the bad guy's oyster. Does he continue in his villainous ways or does winning the war against good leave him without a purpose in life - and maybe even considering changing his ways and going straight?

Behind the Scenes of "The Other Guys"
Co-written and directed by Adam McKay, "The Other Guys" is a sort of buddy cop movie with surprising cameos and full of improvised lines (as you'd expect from the McKay/Ferrell team). Together for a press conference in LA to discuss the Columbia Pictures film, the cast and McKay provided some insight into life on the set of "The Other Guys."
