Last week, Warner Bros. invited us to attend the press junket for The Campaign.  The R-rated comedy stars Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis as two politicians who keep finding hilarious new lows in order to win a district election in North Carolina.   For more on the film, click here for all of our previous coverage.

During my on-camera interview with director Jay Roach, we talked about his fascination with elections, the movie’s element of satire in a big broad comedy, the length of the film’s first cut, the challenges of cutting so much great material, and his potential future projects including the Steve Carell comedy Brigadier Gerard, and a serious film about Nikita Khrushchev‘s visit to the United States.  Hit the jump to check out the interview, click here for my interview with Ferrell and Galifianakis, and click here for my interview with Dylan McDermottThe Campaign opens Friday.

Earlier today I interviewed Mike Judge for almost twenty minutes. As a fan of “Office Space”, “Idiocracy”, “King of the Hill” and “Beavis and Butt-head”, I can honestly say it was awesome being able to ask him questions. Since the interview ran long and covered many subjects, I’m breaking it up into a few parts. Also, not many people want to watch a 20 minute interview. So up first…what he said about “Beavis and Butt-head”.

The good news is…the former kings of MTV might not be dead! According to Mike, “Beavis and Butt-head” is his favorite creation and the one he’s most proud of. More after the jump:
