The latest Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues trailer suggests that news legend Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and his crew have had a tough run since the 1970s. The machismo infused, scotch drinking, sex panther wearing newsmen have been replaced by pretty boy on-air talent (James Marsden), but the prospect of having the boys landing gigs at an 24-hour all news network has them ready for a comeback.
“I’m going to do the thing that God put Ron Burgundy on this earth to do – have salon quality hair and read the news,” says Burgundy in the trailer, which is played with the inspired strains of Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ playing through the clip.
Burgundy apparently hasn’t learned much about political correctness since his anchor heydays, as he horrifically tries to bond during dinner with an African American family. “Which one of you convicts with the longest record can pass me the mash potatoes,” asks Burgundy to a shocked gathering.
Ferrell and Anchorman director Adam McKay penned the script for the sequel, which McKay also directs. The trailer looks promising, and the pair’s collaboration has also yielded The Other Guys, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.
Look for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues to hold up their streak of solid comedies when it comes out this Christmas.
