'SNL' and Will Ferrell Resurrect the Legendary Bill Brasky

by Jacob Hall December 8, 2013 @ 10:21 AM
Here's the weird thing about recurring 'SNL' characters and sketches: you may get tired or annoyed by them at the time, but ten years later, you'll just be longing for them. We didn't know how much we were missing the "Bill Brasky" sketches until last night, when the show brought the character back one more time. After all, when you have Will Ferrell in the house, you've got to revisit some of his classics.

For any many hilarious one liners from the first 'Anchorman' that are sure to live long after our lifetimes, 'Anchorman 2' is sure to have tons more. To get a taste of Will Ferrell's return as Ron Burgundy and his foul pirate-hooker mouth, Paramount has released a new 'Anchorman 2' clip.

He's Kind of a Big Deal: Meet the Anchorman Who Was the Real Life Ron Burgundy

Back in 2000, Will Ferrell was winding down as the star of 'Saturday Night Live' (he would leave after that season ended). He had a series of smaller, supporting roles in movies like 'Austin Powers' and 'Zoolander' but had yet to break through in a leading role. His search for the right project was jumpstarted one night when he was at home, watching an A&E 'Biography' special when he came upon a man who would spark inspiration and change both Ferrell's career and the modern state of comedy forever.
That man, that anchorman, was Mort Crim.

'Anchorman 2': Watch Ron Burgundy Anchor a Real Local Newscast

by Britt Hayes November 30, 2013 @ 10:29 PM
'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' took viral marketing to an entirely new level tonight when Will Ferrell dropped by a local newscast in North Dakota and helped anchor an entire show! That's right, Ron Burgundy himself co-anchored Bismarck's local CBS news affiliate's evening show -- all 30 minutes of it. It's not joke, either. Ferrell -- or Burgundy, rather -- took the whole thing pretty seriously, but that doesn't mean it's not pretty hilarious to watch!

"The First Cut Was Four Hours" - Inside the 'Anchorman 2' Editing Room With Director Adam McKay

Adam McKay is releasing a new film in December, and it’s kind of a big deal.
'Anchorman 2,' one of the few films that truly earns the description “highly anticipated,” arrives in theaters December 20, and the filmmaker is in the final days of editing the film down, paring out superfluous bits, rejiggering set pieces, and swapping out jokes to ensure that audiences thoroughly split their sides watching the overdue reunion of Ron Burgundy, Veronica Corningstone, Champ Kind, Brian Fantana and Brick Tamland.
McKay invited us inside the 'Anchorman 2' edit bay, where he showcased a couple of scenes from the film and offered a few details about what audiences might expect to see. In addition to elaborating on possible plans to release multiple versions of the film in the same way they did with the original 'Anchorman,' McKay explained their massively complicated process of arranging and assembling all of the footage they shoot, and offered perspective on the longevity and the legacy of Anchorman, as Burgundy and his news team prepare to return to the screen.
And, he's such a nice guy, he even gave us three new 'Anchorman 2' posters to share with you featuring James Marsden, Meagan Good and a hilarious Kristen Wiig.

It's no secret that Ron Burgundy loves three things: poetry, a glass of scotch and his friend Baxter. We already have a Ron Burgundy book and Ron Burgundy's Scotchy-Scotch-Scotch ice cream, so it's time for Baxter to have his shot at the big time. Now 'Anchorman 2' director Adam McKay says he wants to work on a kid-friendly 'Anchorman' spinoff that would follow the adventures of Baxter and the son of Ron Burgundy.
