First ‘Anchorman 2′ Clip: Is That What Ron Burgundy Really Sounds Like?
[UPDATE: We’ve added a second ‘Anchorman 2′ clip below!] For as much as we love ‘Anchorman’ and Ron Burgundy, we’re very happy to be at the point where we can watch actual footage from the film instead of countless promotional spots for the various ‘Anchorman 2‘ sponsors. Yes, the first ‘Anchorman 2′ clip is here and it’ll get you laughing along with Ron Burgundy. Wait, did we see with Ron Burgundy? We meant you’ll be laughing at Ron Burgundy.
The first ‘Anchorman 2′ clip is a tour of the new Global News Network offices where Ron, Champ, Brian and Brick have all been hired. They meet their new anchor colleagues, including Jack Lime (James Marsden), the GNN hotshot who, as Ron points out, “I’ll bet his poop smells like sandalwood.”
This somehow all devolves into the entire office (including the Channel 4 News Team) laughing at Ron Burgundy and the way he talks.
There are a lot of new additions to ‘Anchorman 2′ but none have us as excited as Marsden, a legitimately underrated comic actor who, let’s face it, has the perfect look to play a news anchor. Others joining the cast are Meagan Good as Ron’s new boss, Greg Kinnear as Veronica Corningstone’s new husband and Kristen Wiig as Chani, Brick’s love interest.
‘Anchorman 2′ opens in theaters on December 20 and after you take a look at the new clip above, let us know what you’re thinking.
