James Marsden Reflects on ‘Anchorman 2’ Role with THE JOURNAL

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.”
