We all know that when you get the cast of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues that there will be some sort of hilarity to follow; however, I am not sure if anyone, even Jon Stewart, was ready for what happened last night when the cast visited The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
The interview started out as normal as can be expected. As the cast came out on stage, they all handed Jon various gifts, which we later find out are simply some of Jon’s “favorite things” out of the green room.
The cast all take their seats, and Steve Carell, who used to who was on the show for many years, take the forefront. The two of them did a hilarious bit about the other cast members and how they are in “real life”, including David Koechner’s supposed porn addiction. Stewart also goes on to talk about how Paul Rudd isn’t aging like a normal human, and wants to take his powers for his own.
After the bit was seemingly over, Will Ferrell took the hot seat. After Ferrell got settled in, he started to casually eat the plate of delicacies that Stewart had set out for Carell. The situation sure escalated quickly as what started out as a simple act of taking away turned into chaos.
Stewart eventually ended up over the table and on top of Will Ferrell in a “Battle Royale.” Suddenly, everyone is in on it, as they all start drinking from the glass as they try to ward Stewart’s advances off.
Almost out of nowhere, Ferrell breaks free and starts throwing things all over Stewart’s desk as he screams “That’s mine!” Then, everyone in the cast starts distributing Stewart’s “favorite things” to random members of the crowd. Stewart falls to his knees and screams “You maniacs!”
After the cast put the chairs on top of his desk, for some unknown reason, finally, the bit came to an end. The bit was quite obviously scripted, but hilarious nonetheless.
Here is a look at what you may have missed last night on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is scheduled to be released tomorrow, December 20th.
