    Jack Black Takes 'The D-Train,' Chloe Sevigny Feels '#Horror' And John Turturro & Vanessa Paradis Say 'Rio, I Love You'

    We've seen them together at the Oscars, posing for Disney portraits with Annie Leibovitz and, of course, in that memorable scene from "Anchorman" -- bros just seem to loving hanging out together -- but rather remarkably, we've never had a full blown Will Ferrell and Jack Black big screen pairing.
