Ron Burgundy is an a-hole and other insights into Anchorman: The Legend Continues courtesy of Adam McKay
What's been going on with Ron Burgundy and the rest of the Channel 4 news team? Adam McKay threw out a couple of tidbits during an interview with Empire Magazine.
First up, how is Ron dealing with cable news and the 24-hour news cycle? "If he wasn't a giant A-hole, everything would be okay. By the end he's got to be a little less of an A-hole, but that's still a little hard for him to do." You had to know that Ron was too old school to suddenly just cope with the new trends in news reporting.
It also seems that the team will assemble to the Big Apple. "San Diego is too close to Ron's heart to go away, but we feel that New York City is the holy grail for all newsmen." Maybe that's where James Marsden will be. Perhaps he is the star anchor of a network in NY, or perhaps they are competing for the same job. Just leaves me with more questions. Definitely intrigued by the possibilities.
The only other team member to get an update was Brick Tamland (Steve Carell). McKay revealed that Kristen Wiig will indeed be trying to get her naughty paws all over him, "Brick's so far gone that you can't have a relationship with him. It takes a special someone to get a rope snare around his heart. She is dangerous!"
Threats everywhere! Will the team part ways??? I hope not. I miss their scents.
