Even though it seemed like Hollywood's love affair with Barack Obama was cooling down, news that Will Ferrell will host a fundraiser for the president's reelection campaign next month in Los Angeles makes us feel warm. Along with a few others, the Anchorman star serves as a co-chair of a $35,800-a-plate dinner at the home of teevee producer Bradley Bell on February 15. Ferrell, of course, is an outspoken Obama supporter, having stood up for the president last fall, when his approval ratings were especially low.
It's unclear whether or not Ferrell will stand up to tell a few jokes or sit quietly in a corner, and since these kinds of private events tend to be off-the-record, we may never know. We remain hopeful he'll whip out his George W. Bush impression, and somebody will put it on the Internet.
