“I like the parts of your face that are covered with skin!”
That’s just one of the hilar lines from the new Anchorman 2 trailer. This time, we catch up with Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy and his crack news crew in the ’80s, as 24-hour news stations take over. “I’m going to do the thing that God put Ron Burgundy on this Earth to do,” Ferrell tells us. “Have salon-quality hair and read the news.”
We also get a look at Brick Tamland’s (Steve Carell) new love interest played by Kristen Wiig and her “wet popcorn hair.”
So good to see the boys back. I do hope the comedy lives up to its “Burgundy-er” billing.
In addition Ferrell, Carell and Wiig, Anchorman 2 features Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, Harrison Ford, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Rapper Kanye West also shows up in a cameo.
Wearing an Afro wig and brandishing a hockey stick, West appears in a news team brawl. “He was great, and he was funny. He came up with a couple good lines on his own,” director Adam McKay told MTV News in a recent interview.
Kanye the improv comedian. Who’d have thunk it?
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think of the return of Ronnie Burgundy in the comments.
