Ferrell plays Newsman

05.22.2002

He just left Saturday Night Live a few days ago but that's not slowing Will Ferrell down. He's already signed on to star in his second post-SNL film, ACTION NEWSMAN. Ferrell, who also co-wrote the script, will star as Ron Burgundy, an egotistical newsman from the 70s who meets his match in a female co-anchor who actually has a degree in journalism. The film will be produced by David O. Russell (THREE KINGS) and Judd Apatow ("The Larry Sanders Show" and "Freaks and Geeks"). Ferrell's other upcoming project is the Christmas comedy ELF, where he will star as a man who mistakenly believes he's one of Santa's elves. ELF should begin filming shortly under the direction of Jon Favreau (MADE) and Farrell will begin work on NEWSMAN this September.
