Will Ferrell has tried his hand at drama multiple times, from Everything Must Go to Stranger Than Fiction. His recent sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues wasn’t supposed to be a drama, but someone at Paramount had a bright idea, and so we get the clip above.
This might be an April Fool’s joke. For this reason, I hate days like today. But Yahoo Movies reports that Paramount will be releasing a No Jokes Cut of Adam McKay’s Anchorman sequel next month. And the above clip is a melodramatic example of what it will look like.
This can’t be real, right? April Fool’s, right?
He means alternate cuts like this, the film Wake Up Ron Burgundy, a cut created out of deleted scenes from the first move. Here’s a clip:
Producer Judd Apatow adds:
This has to be bullshit. Paramount already released an extended, R-rated cut of Anchorman 2. This would be the third version of the film in a short amount of time. Of course, the movie is coming out on DVD today. So this must be a tie-in to that. Or an April Fool’s gag. Either way, it’s kind of funny to see how a temp track of dramatic music can even swing the tone of a goofy sequel like Anchorman 2. It reminds me of that clip of The Big Bang Theory without a laugh track. So uncomfortable.
