On December 20th, 2013, Ron Burgundy and company return in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. The movie reunites the original cast of Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner and Christina Applegate. This time out we get a few new cast members with Kristen Wiig who looks to be playing Steve Carell’s love interest and James Marsden who is most certainly Will Ferrell’s new competition.
Directed by Adam McKay and produced by Judd Apatow the trailer for this one had me laughing out loud. With lines like: “I like the parts of your face that are covered with skin.” or “Which one of you convicts with the longest record can pass me the mashed potatoes?” I actually watched it a couple of times to get as much Burgundy as I could. Here is the official synopsis: With the 70’s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), returns to the news desk in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.” Also back for more are Ron’s co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), weather man Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), man on the street Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner) – All of whom won’t make it easy to stay classy…while taking New York’s first 24-hour news channel by storm.
