Anchorman 2 hasn't even begun shooting yet, but less than two months after Paramount announced the sequel to the 2004 hit, Will Ferrell & Co. are already starring in a hilarious teaser trailer that hit theaters this week ahead of The Dictator and which has now been leaked online.
"Get ready to ride the Palamino stallion," intones Ferrell, stepping back into one of his most beloved film roles as the eternally pompous, overly serious San Diego newsman.
Joining him once again is his trusty KVWN team: Paul Rudd as arrogant, oversexed field reporter Brian Fantana, David Koechner as chauvinistic sportscaster Champion Champ Kind, and Steve Carell as not-so-smart weatherman Brick Tamland. The loafer-wearing foursome walk out on stage in front of a wall of glitzy bright lights and offer up their best not-safe-for-work catchphrases.
"It's jean-creamin' time," quips Rudd.
For fans, indeed it is. Anchor Man 2 is expected to roll cameras in early 2013 and unspool by the end of the year.
