This week, attached to prints of The Dictator came the teaser trailer for Anchorman 2, with the original cast of boys spouting off their trademark borderline profanity from out of the holes where their moustaches lay.
When production of this sequel was announced, the social media world -- I guess we should just say world at this point -- lit up with excitement. The original film, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, ended up being a comedy classic and the source for endless quoting. It's the pleats...
No definitive word yet on release dates -- maybe summer 2013 -- or even plot points, but I'm just excited these guys are back onscreen together again. This cast has come into its own since 2004, especially Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd. Yeah, it's going to be sophomoric and there will be pee-pee and poo-poo jokes, but who cares?
So come on, everyone....ride the Palomino stallion.
