Paul Rudd Shows off New Cologne in ‘Anchorman 2’ Trailer
Once upon a time, there was a San Diego anchorman named Ron Burgundy, and a movie called Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, and the phenomenon launched a myriad of catchphrases that spread across frat parties and Facebook pages faster than cold germs on a commuter train. This December, Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate return to the big screen as San Diego’s finest news team.
The former four appear in the latest teaser for the film, done up in their news team finery and offering sound advice, as well as iterations of beloved tropes from the last movies. Paul Rudd’s Brian Fantana has swapped out the pungent and 60% irresistible Sex Panther for a new cologne, called "Venom," that is literally just snake venom. And, fresh off his The Office encore appearance, Carell reprises another beloved role, Brick Tamland, offering some sound advice and wishing everyone a Happy Easter. Watch the trailer below, and brace yourselves for the catchphrases, hype and the existential dread that comes with a new onslaught of parody Twitter accounts, that will appear in the months to come.
