Following the Judd Apatow/Jake Kasdan comedy, the Golden Globe best actor nominee retreated to The Walk Hard Cafe, aka Social Hollywood, to discuss his eventful past.
"It seems like everyone wanted a piece of Cox," smiled the '60s/'70s songwriting icon who had 36 kids, took every drug, meditated with The Beatles and slept with 411 women. "And once a woman was exposed to Cox, her life was changed forever. I was like LSD LSD or lysergic acid diethylamide (lī'sûr`jĭk, dī'ĕth`ələmĭd, dī'ĕthəlăm`ĭd), alkaloid synthesized from lysergic acid, which is found in the fungus ergot ( ."

Can Hollywood survive the upcoming awards season without writers providing witty fodder for announcers, emcees and presenters?
Bruce Vilanch, a principal writer for the last 18 Oscar shows, came up with a solution at the 11th annual Ribbon of Hope awards earlier this month.
Although not allowed to use original material, Vilanch claims it's politically correct for striking writers to recycle old scripts.
"I'd like to welcome you all to the 1948 Emmys honoring Kukla, Fran and Ollie Kukla, Fran and Ollie was an early television show using puppets, originally created for children but soon watched by more adults than children. Like many early shows, it did not have a script and was entirely ad-libbed. ," Vilanch told an audience that included Alexis Arquette, Judith Light, Adam Pascal, Diana-Maria Riva, Wilson Cruz, Thea Gill, Dee Wallace and Andrea Bowen. "We also welcome newcomer Barbara Walters, who has a bright future despite that terrible speech impediment."
He was equally impressive when impersonating absent honoree Ashley Judd.
"Hi, folks, this is Ashley Judd but I really don't have much to say because Salma (Hayek) did all of the talking when we were in Guatemala with Youth AIDS International," Vilanch said in a high-pitched Kentucky accent.
So don't worry if Jon Stewart, a Writers Guild member, decides not to host the 80th Academy Awards. Vilanch can use his old scripts to emcee and present every Oscar.
