Will Ferrell News Archive
Don't act like you're not impressed, CNN!
In a HIGHlarious Funny or Die video, CNN anchors Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, and Chris Cuomo sang Ron Burgundy's praises before dissing him hard!
Wolf had this to say about the journalistic giant played by Will Ferrell:
"Today he has the most awards of any anchor. Some of them, honestly, I think belong to me because they're literally mine. He just took them off my shelf right in front of me and acted like I didn't see it."
Meanwhile Anderson talked about how Ron had personal nicknames for the other anchors:
"He calls me Stoopy Andrews. It's not funny, it doesn't even sound like my name."
Uh oh, looks like there might be another News Team Fight! Be careful, Wolf, Anderson, and Chris…Brick Tamland is pretty lethal with a trident!
Ch-ch-check out the AHmazing sketch…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
This episode was packed with surprises!
As he was doing his monologue, One Direction joined the actor, who happens to be a fan. However, Rudd, who was determined not to lose the spotlight this time, had his own backups ready: his Anchorman cast!
After preparing for a fight, Will Ferrell led the group in some Afternoon Delight!!!
Ch-ch-check it out (above) and you’ll be delighted too!!!
We've already spoken at length about how much Will Ferrell's character Ron Burgundy has been doing in the world lately (HERE) for the upcoming Anchorman 2, so let's just focus on the fact that this video (above) is one of the better appearances that he's made!
Denver Broncos Quarterback Peyton Manning fields all of the ridiculous questions thrown at him, and is a champ for playing along too while Ron blasts him for not having any facial hair!
The best part of this is that it's just a clip — there will be a FULL episode of SportsCenter hosted by Ferrell as Burgundy and his co-star David Koechner as Champ Kind tonight! If this is any indication, it looks like sports talk is about to get the shot in the arm it totally needs!
Check out the clip of the amazeballz interview! You won't be disappointed!!
It sounds like Ron and Champ WON'T be hosting tonight after all, and for a very serious reason!
Apparently the Jameis Winston case will be featured — and a press conference today will be announcing whether charges will be filed against him for the rape allegations he was hit with a year ago (which we just spoke about HERE).
Can't really have Ron Burgundy joking around with a topic like that, can they?
Hopefully they'll find a different day!
P.S. — This isn't the only real-life show Will's anchored! See his local news report HERE!
Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy Gets His Own Scotch And Everything Is Perfect — Introducing Great Odin's Raven!
That's right, Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy sure is getting around in promotion for his upcoming sequel Anchorman 2 — so much so that he's been co-hosting curling competitions, selling Dodge cars, ice cream, and even hosting local TV news shows!
None of that compares to this, though: HE NOW HAS HIS OWN SCOTCH.
That's right, his favorite drink now has a little bit of Ron Burgundy in it, and it's called Great Odin's Raven! If you've ever wanted the definition of perfection, this is as close as we're gonna get!
And nothing but the best for San Diego's (German word for "Whale's Vagina) best man! The drink is a blend of grain and malt Scotch whiskies and is presented in a glass
case of emotion bottle that features the silhouette of a black raven, along with the words "Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch" with the initials "RB" printed in gold.
AAh, nothing BUT the best!
Flawless! We can't wait to have it go down down down, down into our bellies!
Look for it to coincide with the movie's release later this month! Check it the ad for the drink (below)!

If you thought Ron Burgundy's comeback tour was limited to the big screen, you were sorely mistaken!
As it turns out, Will Ferrell's most iconic film character this side of Buddy the Elf — OMG, can we get that sequel, too? — magically beamed himself into a few living rooms on Friday!
The amazeballz Anchorman star donned his marvelous mustache and super-smooth
crimson burgundy suit in Bismarck, North Dakota and did a real live newscast!
(Named after German chancellor Otto von Bismarck in 1873, the state capital has absolutely nothing to do with a whale’s vagina!!)
Ch-ch-check out the entire newscast…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Well, the big day finally came!!!
On Dec. 1, Ron joined the Roar of the Rings event in Winnipeg and not only co-hosted the event with TSN, but even did some curling himself!
And, of course it was HIGHlarious!
He pretended to know all of the technical terms, like what a "hard hurry" is. We thought it was just another name for a quickie!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) if you want a good chuckle!
News team, assemble…for some a cappella!
We posted yesterday how Will Ferrell and the rest of his anchors from Anchor Man 2 found some trouble understanding the Australian accent in a new clip, but it looks like Australians have no issue understanding them!
At the Anchor Man 2 premiere in Sydney over the weekend, the cast sang Afternoon Delight and nailed it! When it's right, it's right!
We love this performance almost as much as Brick loves lamp. In fact, after hearing Steve Carell hit those high notes, we'd accept his invitation to his pants party.
Ch-ch-check out the performance that works everytime (60% of the time)…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
