Steve Carell Enthusiastically Endorses ‘Anchorman 2′: ‘It’s Pretty Good’

In the few weeks that “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” has been filming in Atlanta, the actors have been tight-lipped on what exactly will happen when Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 News Team reassemble this December.

Things weren’t any different on Sunday at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards when MTV News’ Josh Horowitz got a chance to talk with Brick Tamland aka Steve Carell back stage. The former “Office” star was certainly vague about how things were going, but at the very least, he seemed enthusiastic about what’s to come.

“It’s pretty good,” Carell said. “Here’s what I was thinking — I just flew back, and I’m going back tonight actually — if you like the first ’Anchorman,’ you will like or love this movie. If you didn’t like it, all bets are off. But, man, it’s funny. I think it’s really come together. Fingers crossed.”

We’ll find out if Carell is telling the truth of not on December 20, when “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” hit theaters.

What we do know so far seems to hint that he’s not lying. Harrison Ford is just one of many stars confirmed for appearances in the sequel. (Many others are technically surprise cameos. We won’t list them here, but they are just a short Google search away.) The entire News Team will return, including Christina Applegate as Veronica Corningstone.
