Ron Burgundy and co return on December 20
Two clips from the forthcoming Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues have been released online – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch.
Both clips from the film, which is the sequel to the 2004 cult comedy film, show the former Channel 4 news team being shown around their new office as they trip to get to grips with the realities of 24-hour news. The film will see Will Ferrell reprising his role as Ron Burgundy, with Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate also all set to return. It opens in UK cinemas on December 20.
Last week (November 19), Burgundy’s autobiography Let Me Off At The Top!: My Classy Life And Other Musings was published. “I don’t know if it’s the greatest autobiography ever written. I’m too close to the work,” Burgundy said when he announced the book earlier this year. “I will tell you this much: the first time I sat down and read this thing, I cried like a goddamn baby, and you can take that to the bank.”
More recently, meanwhile, Burgundy pledged his support to controversial politician Rob Ford, when Ferrell appeared in character on Conan O’Brien’s US talk show to sing a campaign song for the Toronto mayor.
