This weekend marks the release of Anchorman 2 and while the movie itself is opening to mixed reviews, the cast hasn’t allowed that to dampen their fun promoting the picture. Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carrel and David Koechner all showed up out of character on The Daily Show last night but they also all showed up put of their minds as well.
As with all interviews on The Daily Show, things were a balance between funny and real but the needle began leaning more and more towards silliness before the meter just broke altogether with the madness that ensued.
Things just got weirder and weirder, especially when the cast brought out, as Jon Stewart put it, almost everything that was in the green room backstage. This led to a playful banter between Stewart and Carrel about the latter being a bigger star (Carrel got his big break on The Daily Show) before finally Jon Stewart was restraining Paul Rudd while Will Ferrell smashed the props and started stealing vases from the table and running around like a mad man.
This was all unscripted, it was complete madness and it reminded us why we love the cast of Anchorman 2 and Jon Stewart so much.
