The campaign for "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" rolls on, permeating almost every pop culture sphere possible, and so this morning comes even more from the movie. But in this case, instead of Ron Burgundy shilling for products and commenting on TV shows, we have a couple scenes from the actual movie (and yes, Ron Burgundy shilling for products and commenting on TV shows too).

The campaign for "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" rolls on, permeating almost every pop culture sphere possible, and so this morning comes even more from the movie. But in this case, instead of Ron Burgundy shilling for products and commenting on TV shows, we have a couple scenes from the actual movie (and yes, Ron Burgundy shilling for products and commenting on TV shows too).

The first two clips from the highly anticipated movie have arrived and they're... Hilarious? One them has Ron and the team in awe of James Marsden's rival newscaster with Brick laughing maniacally. The other has the quartet confounded by an Australian. Hmm. Meanwhile, Canadians will get a kick out of Ron promising to make an appearance during next Sunday's Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings curling thing, while "Doctor Who" followers won't be shocked to learn that Mr. Burgundy has no idea what a Peter Capaldi is.

In related news, it seems there is a bit of feud brewing former "Saturday Night Live" star Jim Breuer and director Adam McKay. The latter used to be a head writer for 'SNL,' and Breur recently blamed McKay on WTF With Marc Maron for getting him fired from the show. McKay has responded thusly on improv4humans (via SplitSider):

The network made Lorne hire Jim Breuer when we came on. It was when the show's ratings were getting kind of low. So Jim then comes on the show, and Jim's a great guy. I had no problem with Jim whatsoever. Completely cool guy, wrote sketches, [I] put him in sketches. Zero problem with him at all. And he actually has a good run on the show. He does "Joe Pesci Show," which was a huge hit, he did this "Goat Boy" thing. Very popular … he has a good run and then he starts doing Half Baked and I think he has another movie in development. And you see this with people sometimes on there; they're like halfway out the door.

And Jim kind of hit that point, so Lorne started saying, "What about Jim Breuer? It seems like he's not totally here, and some of the writers were complaining. He's not fully committed to the show, and I was like, "Yeah, seems like he's had his run." … Really what was happening was Lorne never got over that he was forced to hire him, was happy that he did well, and was going to the room, "Does anyone agree?" And I was like, "Yeah, I agree," kind of naively. So I think when the word got passed to Jim, it was like, "McKay did this." Now, in fairness to Jim, I definitely thought it was time for him to move on, there's no question about it.

A tough but honest assessment from McKay. Meanwhile, Ron and his mustache are back on December 20, 2013.
