Film's most acerbic, politically incorrect broadcaster, Ron Burgundy, is back!

The new trailer for Anchorman 2 – The Legend Continues was released Wednesday, showing the twisted and hapless Burgundy, played by Will Ferrell, now under intense news pressure, working for a 24-7 cable news network in New York City, far from his comfort zone and the '70s wild life of his home base in San Diego.

Co-anchor Veronica Corningstone, now his wife, makes a return with Christina Applegate once again in the supporting role. Other journalists join Burgundy on his Big Apple adventure. Playing reporters are Steve Carell, David Koechner and Paul Rudd.

John Krasinski on Office Finale: 'We Flat-Out Lied'

Yes, the cast of The Office heard the return rumors too – and no, they weren’t going to spoil the surprise.

"It was so thrilling. We all just flat-out lied," John Krasinski tells PEOPLE with a laugh at Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center's The One Hundred Gala, held Wednesday in Boston.

"I lied to Letterman! I have to apologize to him for that at some point. It was just one of those things that we all vowed and had to protect," the actor says of keeping Steve Carell's last hurrah under wraps. "Look what happened – it was the best. The 'that's what she said' was the perfect use of Steve."

The Office Finale a Big, Lovable Mess, Says PEOPLE's Critic

The Office Finale Was a Big, Frustrating, Lovable Mess, Says PEOPLE's Critic

Originally posted 05/17/2013 08:45AM

The series finale of The Office took up an hour and 15 minutes of NBC's prime-time schedule Thursday night. The last quarter-hour had a special sentimental magic, as we got parting moments with each of the characters at the Dunder Mifflin paper company of Scranton, Pa.

The rest you could have fed into a shredder.

After a season that carefully worked out significant narrative strands – the ultimately inevitable ascension to manager of the insufferable Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson), the unexpectedly tender travails in the marriage of Jim and Pam (John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer) – this episode was poorly conceived and clumsily structured.

It really wasn't worthy of all the years of affectionate humor that had gone before it.

It won't be an easy sweater to fill.

"There's only one person in this whole world like you," Fred Rogers liked to say on his long-running children's TV show. But now the difficult task begins of finding someone just like Mr. Rogers – or who can at least capture his essence – for an upcoming biopic.

A film about Rogers, who died in 2003 at age 74, is in the works at Treehouse Pictures based on a script by Alexis Jolly, a staff writer on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Deadline.com reports.
