The best interview program on the World Wide Web happens to be "Between Two Ferns" with Zach Galifanakis. It's not a real interview, but it's not entirely fake, either. The gist: Galifanakis gets into a snarky mood but somehow maintains innocence as he asks inappropriate questions of celebrities. The guest plays along — they're in on the joke — but they're also letting Galifanakis make fun of them as they do the interview sitting literally between two ferns — cable access-style.
Ellis is solid doing the interview, but I surprisingly preferred Kershaw playing the straight man. Pretty good comic timing on both parts. Ellis has been having a breakthrough season at age 31 for the surprising Dodgers, and both guys between the palms should make the NL All-Star team come July. Maybe they'll interview each other again while in Kansas City.
For comparison's sake, here's an original "Between Two Ferns" with guest Bruce Willis:
"Did you know that some actors turn down roles?"
