Sam Jones Off Camera with Will Ferrell

Enjoy these comments from Sam’s Letter from the Editor and of coursse the whole interview on Off Camera here

” I have been lucky enough to work with Will many times, and he takes the cake for being the most game subject I think I have ever photographed. I have hung him from a tree, put him in an outdoor bubble bath in January, made him ride a miniature pony, dressed him as Einstein, and yes, photographed him buck naked and crying. He has been so generous with his time and his image, and I admire his enthusiasm so much. He is never vain or self-conscious, but instead is always thinking, “what will be the funniest thing I can do.”

Will bounced around a bit after college before finding his way to comedy, but once he got there his life took off like a rocketship. It takes a special kind of man to roll around on the floor playing with cat toys when you get your one shot at a Saturday Night Live audition, and that commitment has made his career fascinating and hilarious to follow. I enjoyed our conversation immensely, and I hope you will too. ”

And watch the preview where he talks about his Dad’s advice and the element of luck here

Frank Ockenfels 3 – Father John Misty for Playboy

I have a BIG CRUSH and it is on Father John Misty ( AKA Joshua Tillman ). I was in love with him when I heard his latest album I Love You, Honeybear ( and I loved The Fleet Foxes ) and then I saw him play last Monday night in Pomona at the Glass House and he was incredible live. Frank had the pleasure of photographing him for PLAYBOY – thanks Rebecca Black – at the Dresden a favorite spot in Los Feliz recently and the story just came out in the new issue of Playboy.

Check him out live if you can – tour schedule is available – his website here
