Will Ferrell transformed into his infamous Ron Burgundy chracter for the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine.
In this issue, Ferrell shares what it was like to don those Burgundy digs for the second time around. Anchorman 2 hits theaters Dec. 18.
On filming Anchorman 2:
“It really feels like the last one, where we couldn’t believe they’d given us money to do these ridiculous things. This one, it’s all about making everything even more ridiculous.”
On controlling his expectations:
“Anyone in comedy who says they knew something was gonna work is full of s**t. I want to keep making things where, potentially, I do turn off part of the audience. Because the percentage that’s going, ‘I can’t believe this is happening, and I love it’ – that’s what I gravitate toward.”
On taking on the sequel:
“The difference with this one is I’m aware that people are watching us. The first one, no one cared.”
On directing “Anchorman 2”:
“Comedy is built on surprise. So sequels are hard. We didn’t want to repeat ourselves.”
The Journal gets personal with Anchorman 2 star, James Marsden.
Check out what the actor had to say about taking on a comedic role opposite Will Ferrell.
On his role in Anchorman 2:
“I play Jack, the cocky hotshot news anchor who has a bit of a competition with Ron Burgundy at the network. It was such a blast. Those guys are such masters of improvisation. It’s amazing how unselfish they are. I got the jitters a bit at first, but Will and Adam [McKay, Mr. Ferrell’s producing partner] are very welcoming of new talent. They encourage you to come up with your own jokes. Huge safety net. The real challenge was just keeping it together and not laughing. The big prize was getting Will to crack. I did it twice!”
On his comedic roles:
“I don’t know what happened. I guess I got funny all of a sudden. I like playing characters who think they’re great, but they’re not, you know? They’re misguided, but they don’t know it – that’s a goldmine for comedy. Their confidence is misplaced.”
