Carell on Anchorman 2

06.05.2008

We brought you the news that Adam McKay and Will Ferrell wanted to make ANCHORMAN 2, a little while back, but that it was contingent on the rest of the cast agreeing to come back. Well today we have confirmation Steve Carell is up for it. Rejoice:

"Oh, absolutely... Yeah, in a second. I’ve heard some inklings as to what Adam McKay has in mind for a sequel, and it’s really funny." And perhaps best of all, he mentions that “Everybody’s a friend...That is one of the most fun things I ever did. I laughed until I cried, every day on that movie.”

I'm not lying when I say I already want to make love to this movie. Sweet love, like I would definitely take it out to a nice Italian restaurant, put on some Phil Collins in the car, and I'd wear cologne. I wouldn't even try to feel it up on the way home. What can I say, I'm a gentleman and my intentions are pure.
Extra Tidbit: Chris Parnell was originally mooted as a possibility to play Brick Tamland, Steve Carell's character.

It could go either way...

I love the cast, and I love the first movie, but most comedy sequels have a tendency to suck. "Caddyshack II", anyone?

@ jgcrooks:

nail on the head, brother. The best comedies are the ones you can't stand, but somehow lure you back until your know ever line. Anchorman is the modern equivalent of Spies Like Us - so stupid, but over time, it becomes stupid... like a fox!

Neato gang!

This sounds like a great idea. Especially since all of Ferrell's more recent movies fall short of Anchorman's greatness. I still believe he's a funny dude, and I'd love to see him back as Mr.Burgundy.

totally agree with JGCROOKS - hated the movie the first time I saw it... then after several viewings I think it's one of the funniest movies ever made.

YES!!!

i can't wait for more Anchorman! Although I'm glad the role of Brick went to Carrell, at least Parnell has a funny role in the movie. When he cries at the fact that Burgundy swore on air...priceless!
