In Hollywood, accounting can seem like a pretty glamorous profession, or not.

Will Ferrell plays lonely IRS agent Harold Crick in the 2006 comedy-drama "Stranger Than Fiction." Harold has been assigned to audit Maggie Gyllenhaal, and falls in love with her. However, he keeps hearing a strange British-sounding voice in his head, and he discovers it's author Emma Thompson, whom he tracks down through her tax records. Turns out she has been writing about his life and trying to decide how he will die in her next book.
