Will Ferrell likes to make commercials. He's done regional ads for Old Milwaukee, a Super Bowl spot for Scorpion Beer to help the release of "Casa De Mi Padre," and he's back once again, with more product weirdness and another movie to promote.

Ron Burgundy is returning to cinemas, and we're cautiously optimistic, if only because comedy sequels have an awful track record — but we have our fingers crossed that "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" can match the brilliance of the first movie.

It was bound to happen: Ron Burgundy, the egotistical news anchor played by Will Ferrell in 2004's"Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" and this winter's "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," will have his own leather-bound book (undoubtedly smelling of rich mahogany). According to Rolling Stone, a new book supposedly authored by Burgundy will be out on November 19th. But that's not all: the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, which features Burgundy and his fellow newscasters on the cover, also offers some insight into the film's plot as well as revealing what would have been had the film come to fruition in its original form: as a lavish Broadway musical.

And yes, "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy" is still the balls, an unrelentingly quotable and flat out hilarious comedy that pretty much launched Will Ferrell and the rest of the Channel 4 News team. But nearly a full decade has passed, and much has changed, and as one bartender once said, possibly in Spanish: "Ladies can do stuff now and you're going to learn how to deal with it." And well, we'll just learn along with Ron and the gang as their back.

'Daddy's Home' For Will Ferrell & Vince Vaughn

Vince Vaughn’s film career has certainly had its share of highs and lows. He broke through early on with a memorable (and endlessly quotable) performance in “Swingers,” but followed that with a series of dramatic roles in poorly received movies (the “Psycho” remake). Then “Old School” came along, which showed him following through on the comedic promise that he showcased in “Swingers.” His career came to an apex with 2005’s “Wedding Crashers” which was the surprise hit of that summer. Unfortunately, he’d soon follow that up with formulaic romantic comedies (“The Break-Up”), lame Christmas movies (“Fred Claus”), and whatever “The Watch” was supposed to be. But he’s got “The Internship,” which comes out next month, and it sees him collaborating with Owen Wilson for the first time since 'Crashers.' Could this be the beginning of another high, or simply another dud? Well, Paramount Pictures is hoping it’s the former.

5 Best Spoiled Cameos & Ridiculous Set Photos From 'Anchorman 2'
“We're talking about creating a murderer's row of the best day players ever for 'Anchorman 2,' ” director Adam McKay told The Playlist in an interview last year. “Like having every single one line or three line role, just be someone we just love -- just making sure every day player is a home run." Dude wasn’t kidding. Perhaps you’ve seen some of the set images recently that have spoiled some of the cameos in “Anchorman: The Legend Continues,” perhaps you haven’t. If you want to keep some of these surprises under wraps, then read no further. No really, *spoilers, spoilers ahead* (cue someone in the comments section saying this warning wasn’t enough).

Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig & Tobey Maguire To Star In IFC Miniseries 'The Spoils Of Babylon'

When "Casa De Mi Padre" dropped last spring, it more or less died on the vine, and was forgotten about. And that's a shame, because in my opinion, it was outrageously hilarious and go for broke, in the way that only a spoof of Mexican telenovelas could be. It was absurd, surreal and bonkers in the way that Will Ferrell does best (joined by game co-stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna), but perhaps the niche of its comedic target put people off. Well, whatever the reason, Ferrell is giving the parody soap opera concept another spin, with time with a more American flavored riff.

We've seen them together at the Oscars, posing for Disney portraits with Annie Leibovitz and, of course, in that memorable scene from "Anchorman" -- bros just seem to loving hanging out together -- but rather remarkably, we've never had a full blown Will Ferrell and Jack Black big screen pairing. Until now.

20 Unforgettable Nude Scenes
Not to dick around, but we've got nudity on the boob right now. Mind. On the mind. Thing is, with an intriguing article over at EW exploring the death of the movie sex scene and the rise of the New Prudishness, with waves made over Kristen Stewart's nudity and handjobs in "On the Road," and now with this week's "Trance" under fire from some quarters for Rosario Dawson's (some say plot-driven, others say gratuitous) birthday suit scene, we've been thinking about nakedness in film almost as much as Seth McFarlane was when he wrote his already-infamous Oscars opening song, though largely without, we hope, the sniggering misogyny.

While there has been much talk about "Anchorman 2" aka "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," details on the actual plot have seen somewhat vague and only really addressed in a broader sense of the thematic territory that will apparently find Ron Burgundy swimming in a bigger media arena than he was back in San Diego. But could a plot morsel served out pretty early on turn about to be right on the money?
