From a Shelter to Showbiz: Anchorman 2's Baxter Is a Scene Stealer

Originally posted 12/27/2013 11:00AM

Look out, Ron Burgundy! There's more than one star making his comeback in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

Baxter, Burgundy's beloved canine companion, returns for the highly anticipated sequel, but with a twist: The pup's original portrayer, Peanut, passed away in the years between films, so a new pooch was cast to fill his A-List paws.

Shelter pup Quince "was found wandering around a grocery store supermarket," says his trainer Ray Beal, before making his big screen debut in Anchorman 2. But you'd never guess the dog was a newbie based on his days on set.

Will Ferrell recently revealed that his inspiration for Anchorman's Ron Burgundy came from a real-life anchor named Mort Crim.

Crim worked at newsrooms around the country, and was – with anchorwoman Jessica Savitch in Philadelphia – part of one of the first male-female news desk pairings in the country.

Will Ferrell's round-the-clock promotional tour for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is raising some interesting temporal paradoxes. Each of these appearances is taking place in the year 2013 (obviously), but Ferrell's Ron Burgundy character appears unchanged from the way he appears in both Anchorman films, both of which take place more than 30 years in the past.

Wolf Blitzer: 'Ron Burgundy Tried to Poison Me'

Originally posted 12/10/2013 08:00AM



Let's face it, by mid-2014 (assuming Anchorman 2 does well enough), Ron Burgundy will likely be an actual news anchor, and this video will seem less funny in retrospect as Will Ferrell disappears from reality, subsumed by his most hirsute creation.

Until then, though, it's hilarious. Funny or Die gathered Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer and Chris Cuomo (all of whom apparently have history with Ron) to discuss Burgundy's journalistic abilities, integrity and lack thereof.

Will Ferrell has been making the rounds as his Anchorman character Ron Burgundy in preparation for the 2004 film's hotly-anticipated sequel coming out in December.

He appeared in a series of ads for the Dodge Durango, and most recently, co-anchored an edition of Bismarck, N.D.'s KXMB's broadcast.

Ferrell/Burgundy brought all his signature moves, slowly leaning into co-anchor's Amber Schatz's screen, before warning her that he's married, so "Don't get any ideas." He casually reaches into sportscaster Jon Schaeffer's frame and pats him on the shoulder mid-report at one point as well.

Why Justin Timberlake Thinks He Isn't Cool | Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake Doesn't Think He's Cool

Originally posted 11/12/2013 08:00AM

While he seems like the very embodiment of "cool," Justin Timberlake doesn't use that word to describe himself.

"Listen, I'm not cool," the singer, dancer and actor says in the "Men of The Year" issue of GQ. "Being cool is about keeping your blood pressure steady. So no. Don't be cool. Be passionate. Be dedicated. Be tenacious. Be uncompromising. Be pissed. Be happy. Be sad."

Timberlake, 32, goes on to explain that not being "cool," often means doing the opposite of what's expected of him, like playing a high-stakes gambler in Runner Runner alongside Ben Affleck or appearing in sketches on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon every night for Timberweek.
