ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES
Thanks For Stopping By
The news team, to this day, still finds the popularity of Anchorman a happy
accident. "We when we were shooting the first one, we had no idea it would be
this much fun and this popular," says Steve Carell. "Broadcasters saw it and
didn't embrace it immediately, but they've since come to regard it as their

same brand of empty-headed news that keeps audiences laughing through another
bout of Anchorman. "They know people want to be entertained, they want to see
fun news, they want someone who looks good - and that's what Ron Burgundy can
do," says McKay. "That's his magic secret every single time."
