Obviously the most exciting thing about “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” is the fact that Harrison Ford has come on board to play a “legendary newsman.” But, according to him, he doesn’t have a very significant role in the movie.
“It’d be easy enough to cut out. I don’t think it’s critical,” he told Entertainment Tonight, adding that his experience on set was “bizarre.” “They weren’t all in the scene that I did,” he said. “It was just what’s his name [Will Ferrell] and the applesauce girl [Christina Applegate].” Yes, really, there’s video to prove this went down.
In addition to Ford’s unintentional — or maybe intentional — hilarity, Paul Rudd went on “Conan” to show a new clip from “Anchorman: The Legend Continues.” Spoiler alert: it’s not really a clip from “Anchorman: The Legend Continues.”
It’s actually a clip from “Mac and Me,” and Conan O’Brien’s response to Rudd showing it is hilarious. “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” is due in theaters on December 20. It stars Ferrell, Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Applegate, Ford, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Meaghan Good, Greg Kinnear, Josh Lawson and potentially John C. Reilly.
