Will Ferrell Hollywood Walk of Fame Star

We could argue that the Hollywood Walk of Fame has gotten a little carried away with honoring all kinds of showbiz figures–but we’re kind of happy to see the mix of showbiz types slated to be honored this year. There are a few big names, a few questionable ideas, and lots of cool individuals who deserve every kind of honor they can get. But we’re going to let you decide for yourself which showbiz types belong in each category, as we check out the official latest list of upcoming stars getting stars…

MOTION PICTURES:

  • Raymond Chandler (posthumous honor for the legendary writer of tough detective novels)
  • Eugenio Derbez (he’s a Mexican television star who’s also created hits series–and races cars, too)
  • Will Ferrell
  • Jennifer Garner
  • Peter Jackson (of The Lord of the Ring movies, but show some respect to The Frighteners)
  • Bob Kane (posthumous honor for Batman creator, but Bill Finger deserves more credit)
  • Daniel Radcliffe
  • Paul Rudd
  • Snoopy (the cartoon character, and it took him a lot longer to get his star than Paul Rudd, or this next gal…)
  • Melissa McCarthy
  • Christoph Waltz

TELEVISION:

  • James L. Brooks (legendary television producer, respected film director, big deal for The Simpsons)
  • Ken Ehrlich (produced a bunch of Grammys productions, so the fix was in)
  • Bobby Flay (he’s a chef)
  • Seth MacFarlane
  • Julianna Margulies
  • Chris O’Donnell
  • Jim Parsons
  • Amy Poehler
  • Kelly Ripa
  • Sofia Vergara

RECORDING:

  • Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald (Dr. Luke made Ke$ha famous–but besides that, good for him)
  • Kool & The Gang
  • Pitbull (this makes Paul Rudd and Melissa McCarthy look carefully considered)
  • Al Schmitt (big deal in the recording industry as a record producer and engineer)
  • Pharrell Williams (his hat will get its own star in 2021)

RADIO:

  • Larry Elder (an unexpected honor for the longtime talk-radio figure)

LIVE THEATRE/LIVE PERFORMANCE:

  • Kristin Chenoweth
  • Dick Gregory (sharp comedian who took off in the ’60s, mostly as a Bill Cosby with a militant edge)
  • Ennio Morricone (he wrote the theme to The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly–and plenty more cool soundtracks)
