First Official Image of Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in THE CAMPAIGN Along with New Plot Details [Updated with Hi-Res]

     March 23, 2012


About a month ago, we brought you these set photos from The Campaign (previously known as Dog Fight), starring Will Ferrell (Old School) and Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover). Now, we have the first official image from the movie which features Ferrell and Galifianakis’ characters as political opponents posing for a photograph. The plot of The Campaign follows Cam Brady (Ferrell) and Marty Huggins (Galifianakis), two North Carolina politicians who each have Presidential aspirations and are vying for a congressional seat in their district. This image isn’t as colorful as the previous set photos, but Galifianakis’ awkwardness is shining through loud and clear.

Directed by Jay Roach (Meet the Parents), The Campaign also stars Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott, Brian Cox, John Lithgow and Dan Aykroyd. Look for The Campaign to appear in theaters on August 10th. Hit the jump to see the image and a bonus quote from Ferrell. [Update: We’ve updated the image with a hi-res version]

EW has the first look at the new official image from The Campaign, along with a quote from Ferrell about his character’s background. Ferrell apparently plays the incumbent congressman who gets involved in a sex scandal, allowing an underdog (Galifianakis) to challenge him for his seat in Congress. In Ferrell’s words:

“I have a bit of an ethical slip. I leave a highly sexual message on a very Christian family’s answering machine, thinking I’m calling my mistress.”
