The News Team has re-assembled! Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is finally here, 9 years after the 4 buffoons of Channel 4 news first won us over. The whole gang is back- Ron, Champ, Brian and Brick are causing the usual ruckus, but this time in New York City. The film focuses on the start of the 24 hour news channel and the tabloidization of news, while tackling tough issues of racism, marital trouble and health.
At the press day for the film in NYC, I participated in a roundtable interview with Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd. They talked about getting the old band back together, the nostalgic feeling of seeing themselves in costume, their admiration for Adam McKay and Will Ferrell [who co-wrote the script], how hard it was to keep a straight face on set, and a lot more. Hit the jump for more.
