Last week, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend yet another great event at the Apple Store in SoHo. This time, one of my favorite actors, Will Ferrell, was speaking alongside director Dan Rush on their upcoming movie Everything Must Go. After first running through some questions by an Apple-appointed moderator about the film, which certainly seems worth checking out, the floor was then opened up to an interesting session of Q&A. It consisted of requests that certain people couldn't resist, such as asking for a hug or trying to offer a gift, but also had its share of seriousness when people conjured up questions about his motivations as an actor, certain roles he's played, and more.
Let me say this: Will Ferrell is just as funny in person as he is in movies. While I wholeheartedly enjoyed the abundance of laughter that took place among the whole crowd consistently throughout the event, I also enjoyed getting a glimpse into Will Ferrell's thoughts and opinions on a more introspective level. Dan Rush, who's making his directorial debut with this film, also added inspiration in being able to bring Will on board despite his lack of experience (at least in terms of actually making a movie) which goes to show that it really depends on one's talent, not necessarily always the position they're in.
