Will Ferrell

This past week kicked off in marquee fashion with Will Ferrell, star of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, as Idris Elba, who plays the title role in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, both taking turns in the red chair.

For those about to read, George also spoke with author Ian Rankin. Then, to mark the second anniversary of the death of Christopher Hitchens on Dec. 15, 2011, we compiled highlights from two separate interview George conducted with Hitchens over the course of the show's 10 seasons.

If that wasn't enough, we also spoke with Olympic medal hopeful and extreme snowboarder Mark McMorris.

Check out the photo gallery featuring all of them above. And if you're so inspired, their respective interviews are below for viewing.
