Starring: Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, Vince Vaughn, Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig
The Channel 4 news team is back! After nine years, the whole gang is back together and I couldn't be happier! Ron Burgandy is by far my favorite Will Ferrell character. Many times sequels are made to high grossing comedies and they just bomb. They recycle jokes and the script always seems to be rushed. I am glad McKay and Ferrell took their time to make sure they had the right story to make it work. The first film has a huge following so I think they knew they had to get it right to appease the fans.
With the original news team brings a slew of new cast mates including James Marsden, Harrison Ford, and the hilarious Kristen Wiig who seems to be the perfect counterpart to Steve Carell's Brick Tambland. According to IMDB and Wikipedia, there are a slew of cameo appearances from: Sacha Baron Coen, Nicole Kidman, Tina Fey, Jim Carrey, and Liam Neeson.
I'll be there opening weekend, will you?
