Posted September 1, 2011 1:59 pm by Glumpuddle

William Moseley (Peter) makes an appearance as Wheeler (“Fire!”) in a recent Captain Planet parody video by Funny or Die. “Captain Planet” was a television series created by Ted Turner in the early 90s. Funny or Die is a comedy video website founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s production company. View the video here. There is also a behind-the-scenes video.

    Does this make anyone else think of a certain comical, joyful moment in Prince Caspian that didn’t make it into the film?

  • smdurrell says:

    very disappointed in this video… didn’t think it was funny at all. The language etc… is disgusting. Will is better than this….

    • 220chrisTian says:

      Total agreement. I was disappointed. 🙁

    • glumPuddle says:

      Have you seen Captain Planet? I used to watch it, so I enjoyed the irony in this video.

    • WilliamMOseleyand Skandarcrush says:

      Yeah. I mean, the stupid language and such is bad, but now a days; it’s like it’s perfectly normal to do that stuff… and people think it’s funny. I thought the video wasn’t funny AT ALL (except 4 the part where he’s like: tree tree!! tree tree…) It’s kinda sad that it’s like normal to do stuff like this. But if people think it’s funny to swear every five seconds, fine! They have no life, i’m sorry to say 🙂 At least I know what a comedic video is. This is just 5 min wasted of my life. And even if I was a person who swears a lot and watches sexual videos; i think i still wouldn’t enjoy this. It’s just…..stupid!

      you think thats disgusting then see him as an underwear model

  • 220chrisTian says:

    I think Georgie Henley’s new film "The Class Project" opposite Abigail Breslin is bigger news! [I just hate the film…]

    Will still can’t do an American accent. 😉

    I used to watch Captain Planet. Funny video. I love the end. I am going to laugh so hard if they actually make a Captain Planet movie.

  • Fireflower says:

    WHAT IS WITH THE HAIR, WILL? He can do better, can’t he?

  • ChristProclaimer says:

    Um…Wow. That was wierd if you’ve never seen Captain Planet. He doesn’t look half bad with pink hair, though. Kinda…

    Oh, nevermind.

    • Hiking Peter says:

      All the hair needs is some…..something that makes it look realistic. To me it just looks like a cheap wig that someone bought at the dollar store. No offense. He looks weird in red hair.

  • Sub says:

    lol that was hilarious.

    • WilliamMOseleyand Skandarcrush says:

      what!! u thought that was HILARIOUS!!! well maybe the part where he’s like: tree! tree! tree! But that was soooo boring!!!

  • Louloudi the Centaur says:

    Lovely. 😛 Yeah, I see some people are complaining that it’s inappropriate, with both sexual and language content, but remember that this is just a parody and it’s not meant to be taken seriously.

    I can’t remember if I ever watched Captain Planet, but being the younger sister of two brothers, I probably did, but I don’t remember it. I think it occasionally shows on Boomerang on Earth Day or Arbor Day.

    • Laura Andrews says:

      Maybe it’s more dangerous to laugh at things that are wrong, than to take them seriously… Humor *can* be clean, and still be hilarious. Most of the Get Smart shows (not the movie) are an example.

  • Thee Narnian Meerkat says:

    Wow, that was the STUPIDEST video I have ever seen…

  • Geon says:

    Does any one get the feeling they should just facepalm after watching this video? Because I just did!

  • Swordebrithil12 says:

    LOL that was kind of funny. I’ve seen CP before so this was alright, even with the strong language.

  • Kayla says:

    That was kinda dumb…but it had Will…That creates an exception :p

  • Aslan's BFF says:

    I don’t understand:
    Why anyone would talk like that.
    Why William was a part of that.

    I thought for sure he’d do something Christian because he is one. Can’t you say to the directors, "I don’t agree with this script, therefore I refuse to do it."?

    Surely there’s a director out there with an excellent script and a part that Will will be able to star in.

    That was positively gross! 🙁

    Sorry Will, but that was truly unacceptable!

    • Sarah says:

      Are you sure he’s actually a Christian, or do you just assume since he’s in Narnia? I’ve never heard him say that, and most people who say they are are usually more agnostic.

    • WilliamMOseleyand Skandarcrush says:

      I’m 99.9% sure he’s not a Christian, There was an interview w/ him when the host asked him if he had any religion, so Will was like: "Um, yeah, i think there’s a god somewhere up there, so uh, yeah i guess that would make me Christian" then Skandar said he’s an atheist, but when ur a Christian, u need to believe that he died on the cross and ask him into ur heart. I don’t think Will has asked Jesus in2 his heart sadly.

    • Aslan's BFF says:

      I don’t assume anything. I found on some site, I think Wikipedia (though not very sure), that said he was. That same site said that Anna and Georgie are Christians. Georgie, I’m very very sure is, because in one interview she said she liked that in Narnia "there’s a Christian background for those who want it".

      Hey WilliamMoseleyandSkandarcrush, do you remember that interview, where I can find it? I am very interested in seeing it.

      Okay Sarah, I have to tell you that I am HUGE on good acting. Whenever something has bad acting, I immediately think, "Oh not good." I would classify "Funny or Die" as:
      -horrendous language,
      -the acting a bit fake,
      -and the storyline a little wacky.
      But I guess that’s what modern comics are. I don’t read many comics though. Yes, Will is extremely cool looking. And I wouldn’t mind meeting him at all. Even just glimpsing him on the streets sometime…

      • WilliamMOseleyand Skandarcrush says:

        Sorry, i can’t give u an exact place. It was a very long time ago. I found it while browsing around on Youtube.

      • Nobody Particular says:

        Yeah, I agree, Aslan’s BFF, Terrible acting. You’d think High King Peter the Magnificent could do a little better.

    • Hiking Peter says:

      Perhaps the answer was found on Ask.com? Cause I just looked it up, and the answer was just quite simply,"yes". Didn’t even have a capital ‘y’. Sigh.

  • Sarah says:

    Other than the language, I don’t understand why people are so offended by it. It wasn’t THAT bad.
    I thought he was adorable in the behind-the-scenes video. AND YAY GILLIAN JACOBS!

  • Freya says:

    So, according to some people here, Will M. shouldn’t have been in that video because of some "inappropriate" contents because he once upon a time played Peter Pevensie? In that case I wouldn’t recommend you ever watch "Dorian Gray" starring Ben Barnes.
    These people are actors, this is their living. Don’t confuse them with their Narnia characters. And as far as I know, Will M. haven’t done one single film since "Prince Caspian", so it looks like the studios aren’t exactly banging his door down. Maybe he can’t afford to be picky.

    • Starlily says:

      You’re right, Freya. We may not always like it, but that’s the way life is. An actor’s job is not necessarily to be a role-model, their job is to act.

      • Aslan's BFF says:

        Can’t they be actors *and* role-models? I know they should just be making money and all, so don’t think I’ve just fallen of the turnip truck just because I think that they could have minused the language.

        I’ve seen parts of Dorian Gray on YouTube. It was a weird movie. Kind of graphic and … yeah.

      • Starlily says:

        I know what you mean, Aslan’s BFF. Actors *should* be role-models, but nobody is perfect, and as Freya said, some actors can’t afford to be picky with their roles, and it’s how they act offscreen that is most important. But of course I don’t like to see them in movies with inappropriate content. I’m a Christian, and I’d like to see every member of the Narnia cast starring in good, clean movies. But that’s Hollywood for you. And we shouldn’t judge these people. Just don’t watch the movies that you don’t like (I haven’t even seen this "Funny or die" video, by the way).

      • Not Of This World says:

        Don’t waste your time in seeing it.

      • Aslan's BFF says:

        I’m not seeing the movie. But whoever does is welcome to give me feedback on the wholesomeness of it. I, for one, will be writing or reading a book.

    • Aslan's BFF says:

      I know this is totally off subject and for that I apologize, but did you get your name from "The Adventures of Merlin"?

      • Freya says:

        No, I have never watched that to be honest. Freya is a name origined from Norse mythology, and I’m Norwegian, it’s part of our ancient history.

      • Aslan's BFF says:

        Oh wow! I love the Norwegian accent. I’m big into accents and things because my own is so American and boring.

        I asked because in one of the episodes, Merlin falls in love with a girl named Freya. You probably are completely lost in this explanation. But you should check out the Adventures of Merlin sometime on Imdb. The episode is called, "The Lady of the Lake".

    • Freya says:

      Well, if Will M. was a class A actor I’d say he has a responsibility as a role model and should consider that in every aspect of his public life, but the thing is, he’s not. Most people, except us die-hard Narnia fanatics, don’t even remember him anymore. Sorry, but that’s the truth.
      Dorian Gray is, in my opinion, a fantastic movie, but like you say, very graphic. Ben however, is a great role model, because he is always so respectful and loyal towards his fans and the films he’s a part of, you can hear it in every single interview he does.
      If these actors cannot be a part of films with "inappropriate" content, just because they once upon a time did a part in the Narnia films, their choices would be scarce indeed. The important thing is how they conduct themselves off the screen and in public, nobody wants to see another Lindsay Lohan.

    • Hiking Peter says:

      True, Freya. I mean, we don’t know what Will’s finances are, so why on earth should we judge him according to some dumb movie? (Just in case you though I was being sarcastic, I wasn’t. I totally agree with you.)

    • DaughterofAslan'scountry says:

      A story or a movie isn’t neccesarily bad if it contains sexual content, it’s the way it’s portrayed. The picture of Dorian Gray is actually considered a Christian story. Although I presonally don’t think movies should have very graphic sexual content.

      • Hiking Peter says:

        Yes, me too. I really don’t think any movie needs to be graphic in that way. There are so many good movies out there that don’t have it.

  • Thee Narnian Meerkat says:

    I just have to say, since this page is the only latest Narnia news, Happy Birthday Skandar Keynes!!!! Hope it’s a good one! Enjoy being 20!!!! 😀 🙂

    • Aslan's BFF says:

      You mean 19, right?

      • freya says:

        Skandar Keynes is born in 1991, that makes him 20 now. He’s not a teenager anymore, unbelievable as that sounds.

      • Aslan's BFF says:

        Whoops, sorry about that. Thanks for the correction! Gosh, time sure flies when you’re waiting for the next Narnia film, eh?

    • Hiking Peter says:

      WOW! It just seems like Yesterday when Andrew Adamson told someone…."I’m being bullied by a nine year old!" (meaning Georgie) The years sure do fly by when we are all waiting anxiously for a Narnia 4.

  • Not Of This World says:

    That was very stupid. I didn’t hear a curse word, but that was because I had the volume very, very low. That whole thing was lame. And that one part was gross and innopropriate. Sick. When we said we wanted the little stories, I don’t think we ment this 🙂 This was TERRABLE!!

  • Bookwyrm says:

    Never watched Captain Planet, but I still thought it was a hilarious parody. It’s a bit silly to complain about the language in it when the story warns, in bold print no less, that there’s strong language in it. If you knew that would offend you, you shouldn’t have clicked.

    Also amusing was the fact that Will couldn’t even manage hammy overacting. I thought he was the least talented actor in LWW & PC and that video does nothing to change my opinion.

    • Hiking Peter says:

      Yes, I agree. William was no the best actor. He was the most dramatic. Probably too much. Liam Neeson was the best.

    • Freya says:

      Out of the four Pevensies, there were only two good actors, and that was Georgie and Skandar. Anna wasn’t too bad, but Will was mediocre at best. He didn’t do a bad job in LWW, but in PC… well… He hasn’t done one single film since, I guess that speaks volumes.

      • Jackie the kid says:

        Yeah. But you have to admit, he sort of looked the part. And Skandar’s fabulous acting was a fluke. They just picked him because they thought he looked semi-related to Georgie. Weird. (Skandar is still really good!) But I would say that the complete best Narnia actor was Will Poulter. I think he was even better than Ben Barnes.

      • Freya says:

        I agree, Jackie. Will Poulter did an amazing piece of acting as Eustace, he made me think he WAS Eustace. I think he has a great acting career ahead of him, time will tell. I was talking about the four Pevensies, so I didn’t include Will P. or Ben.

      • Jackie the kid says:

        Ok. Ben was good, too. Made a quite handsome Caspian!

      • Aslan's BFF says:

        I thought that William was Peter. Just like Georgie *was* Lucy, etc. He fit the part as himself.

        I remember in Prince Caspian, when they have to leave the army behind after the raid, the look on Peter’s face made me want to cry.

      • BeepleSqueak says:

        Yes, he did a good job there.

  • Not anyone important says:

    This looks like something that should be on PBS kids, minus the language. Hopefully Will isn’t totally impressed, and wishes he was still in Narnia. (Wonderful world of….)

  • daisy says:

    omg I love you william moseley love love love love love love love love love love love love love love loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  • narnian resident says:

    if Will even ever talked, i didnt hear him. he just stood there looking stupid with the red hair.
    it surprises me what good actors will put themselves in after doing amazing stuff like Narnia. i mean, doesnt Will want to pursue a career in acting? then why isnt he pursuing legitimate acting positions instead of this crap? Come on, Will.

    • Aslan's BFF says:

      I only remember one line for sure but there was one before it.
      The line was, "Stop!"
      But hey, there are never small parts, only small actors!

  • Jackie the kid says:

    Hey! It’s my birthday today! Somehow I just realized that. Weird.

  • DamselJillPole says:

    I thought this film was overall hilarious! And yes the language did not at all bother me. Since I’m already doing internships in the film industry the first rule I learned in acting 101 is that in order to be an actor you have to tolerate language and (touching) and yes what some of you guys said offended me especially the part about being a Christian. The only person who has the right to judge is God and him only. I’m a Christian and I cussed in a few class films and in theatre, one time I read a script where my character says God’s name in vain, I compromised with the director to only say the "word" without puting God’s name in it and he agreed.
    As long as the story that is being told is a good one, obviously in this case a dark comedy it felt right and okay. So stop judging William guys! He’s well on his way. Also I didn’t hear him say one cuss word at all. Calm down people.

  • Peepicheep says:

    Seriously. ‘Funny or Die’. Come on. He could have spent more time on something more important instead he did something that was so worthless. It’s not even humorous.

    • DamselJillPole says:

      The guy has to make a living somehow. He’s an actor and actors will get their hands on anything when the oppurtunity calls for it. They wanted him in this and he did it. Plus he’s around other major stars, Disney channel stars for that fact.

  • BeepleSqueak says:

    Weird. Way weird. Not the movie I would pick to be in. Or to watch, in this case.

  • Trinity-Hawkeye aka T.H.SwordWriter says:

    i really don’t understand how william used his gifts for that kinda crap for a movie i will not see
    honestly!

  • Lucy says:

    Oh come on guys stop over analysing Its just a bit of fun :)its not supposed to be oscar worthy XD

  • Kare says:

    William is my favorite actor. So what if he does FoD parodies? And by the way, this is NOT a film, but rather a parody clip made for INTERNET. Many actors have underwent this, even Marion Cotillard. Since William is still on process of finding more film projects, maybe he thought of doing this. And hey, isn’t it that you get smaller projects first before bigger ones? Also, William has intentions in getting to film directing someday.

    I hope you guys realize that actors are not the same as their characters, so don’t think that Georgie will be Lucy forever, on even think Christian Bale is always a superhero-ish as Batman.

    • Freya says:

      I hate to break it to you, honey, but the Narnia movies he was in were the bigger ones. Then he went and did this. By all accounts, his acting career should’ve moved forward after Narnia, not backwards. He has not done one single movie since Prince Caspian, and that was filmed back in 2007 I think, it’s four years ago, and that is a long time in this business. So I hope he has a back-up plan, like directing as you say. Either way, we wish him luck.

  • Terka says:

    He is very beautifull, but the long hair does not suit him. otherwise he is wonderful.
