Ron Burgundy Poses For FHM Photoshoot
Newscaster invites Anchorman fans to his gun show in magazine feature...
Speaking about his transformation into the unreconstructed newsman, he revealed that it is a 90-minute process involving moustache gluing, trimming and waxing, hairnets, make-up application and several fiddly wig adjustments.
"It's very easy for me to switch on Ron, I've been doing him on and off for years, so I can get into Ron mode at any time. I just do his voice, put on the moustache, and I'm good to go."
"It's been nine years since the first movie, so I can keep Ron kind of separate at times, but there's no doubt that it's the character I feel most connected to.
"And depending on how the second movie does, I may become even more synonymous with this one movie and this one character."
The first Anchorman film, released in 2004, became a hit on DVD and by word-of-mouth following an unremarkable showing in the cinema.
Ferrell says the movie's creative team had not expected it to become such a well-loved movie.
"From the start, we had every indication that it wouldn't work. Studios didn't get it. Nobody wanted to make it. And when we made the film, it didn't test well with audiences at all, and nobody knew how to market it."
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues hits UK cinemas on 18 December. The January issue of FHM Magazine, featuring the full interview with Will Ferrell is on sale on Thursday.
