Jazz flute fans rejoice! For a couple reasons, actually. For one, Will Ferrell made a surprise appearance on Conan tonight as Ron Burgandy and played (again, as Ron Burgandy) a stunningly avante garde “yazz flute” performance with the band. I have to say, I really missed Will in the wine red suit.
Oh, and did I mention that we’re getting an Anchorman 2?! … Well, you probably already know that if you read the title of this post, but let’s pretend that you totally missed that and I didn’t ruin the surprise. It will make me feel a lot better. Just … just go with it, ok? So anyway … did I mention that we’re getting an Anchorman 2?! I know, right!
Anchorman is one of my favorite comedies and it’s really the only of Ferrell’s “character” movies that I absolutely love. I’m not ashamed to say I went to see it three times in the theaters. Needless to say, I’m excited about this news. I’m hoping that they can get the main cast back, including Steve Carrell is his bigger role before The Office, Brick Tamland.What I’m also hoping is that they keep it in the 70s. If we do a time jump with this, it’s going to be way too Austin Powers-like, and that’s not what Anchorman is about.
In celebration of this announcement (besides shouting random Anchorman quotes back and forth with Tom Brazelton), I’m watching this hilarious extra from the Anchorman DVD. Ron Burgandy … interviewing for ESPN. Ennnnjoy.
