Harrison Ford Signed For ANCHORMAN 2

HarrisonFordHarrison Ford is definitely considered a living legend for his iconic roles in two geek-beloved franchises. And now he will meet a living legend in his own mind – the iconic San Diego news reporter Ron Burgundy. The Hollywood Reporter is stating that the actor has signed on to appear in the Will Farrel comedy Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

Ford will be playing a well known national news anchorman when the sequel begins production in Atlanta later this month.

In addition to Farrell, this sequel to 2004’s Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy will see the return of Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate and David Koechner.

Honestly, outside of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones pictures, I’ve not found the moments where Ford has been called upon to act comedically to be all the funny. Hopefully director Adam McKay can get a solid and funny performance out of Ford for the film. But his casting is the first qualm I’ve had

It could work. I don’t think I’d want Ford playing comedy for comedy, but playing ridiculous material completely straight a la Airplane! *could* be hysterical.

Anchorman remains one of the important signs that my wife and I are destined to be together. We’re just about the only two people who really hated that movie. Except the news crew rumble, which was goddamn funny.
