Funnymen Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis kicked off their hilarious campaign for their film “The Campaign” at The Grove, stopping by to talk with host Mario Lopez about their new political-based comedy and sequels to their blockbuster hits “Anchorman 2” and “Hangover 3.”
Zach hedged there’s going to be a third “Hangover” installment. “I’m still a little cloudy on the details, but I met with the director yesterday, so yeah, it's happening.”
On “Anchorman 2,” Zach jokingly explained, “We're so very excited about ‘Anchorman 2.’ There's a character that I've been working on for a while.”
Ferrell laughed, “What’s going on here? We’d die to have Zach, but yes, we have Steve Carell back, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate and, hopefully, Vince Vaughn.”
In “The Campaign,” Ferrell and Galifianakis play two rival North Carolina politicians with presidential aspirations who have to tangle with one another.
Will said, “We were filming this during the Republican primaries, so we would get together and watch them as if they were sporting even. It was so much fun to see those guys trip over each other.”
“The Campaign” launches August 10.
