Illusionist and endurance artist David Blaine's 90-minute special "Real or Magic," which aired earlier this week, stunned and amazed notable figures like former president George W. Bush and big-time celebrities, including Will Smith and Harrison Ford, who all participated in the acts.
"For this special, I wanted to focus only on the magic and the people, so for the first time in over a decade, I concentrated just on doing simple things that could be done anywhere to capture the reactions that I fell in love with," Blaine previously told EW in preparation for the show.
Blaine, known for extreme endurance stunts such as being buried alive for a week, being encased inside a block of ice for three days and nights, surviving inside a transparent box for 44 days filled with nothing but water, and breaking world records such as the longest time for holding one's breath, performed a variety of acts with a host of celebrities in the special that aired on Tuesday night. more >>

Actor Will Ferrell dressed up as his famous character Ron Burgundy to pay a visit to talk show host Conan O'Brien on the Wednesday airing of "Conan" on TBS. Ferrell was there to promote his upcoming movie "Anchorman 2," performing a comedic song in which the actor showed his support for the embattled mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford.
"He's a dear, dear, dear friend," Ferrell told host O'Brien, adding that the mayor is only controversial "because he's so honest." Ferrell showed up to the show dressed in his classic Rob Burgundy wardrobe of a turtle neck, vest and vintage leather jacket layered on top.
Ferrell joined the show's house band to perform a re-election song for Mayor Ford, who was recently stripped of most of his power in Toronto after he admitted to smoking crack cocaine and drinking heavily. In the song, Ferrell warned Ford to not "do anything stupid" to the tune of 1981 Loverboy hit "Working for the Weekend." A jazz flute interlude was even part of Ferrell's comedic performance. more >>
