Some people say that all comedians become irrelevant at one point. It seems like this isn’t true for Will Ferrell, nor will it ever be true. In the trailer for his new film, The Campaign, he plays Cam Brady, an extremely popular Congressman from North Carolina. After making a major goof in public, Brady’s supporters are forced to retract their endorsement and bring in an opponent. His name is Marty Huggins. Played by Zach Galifianakis, Huggins is the director of the local Tourism Center and is also a stark conservative.
The two begin campaigning shamelessly for their valued title. Needless to say, things get out of control. This hilarious preview puts Ferrell and Galifianakis back at doing what they do best; goofy comedy. Co-starring the likes of Jason Sudeikis and John Lithgow, The Campaign looks to be a surefire hit for both of its extremely talented stars.
In other Will Ferrell news, it seems like a teaser trailer for Anchorman 2 will be played before The Dictator which is set to release Wednesday, May 16th. My mind is racing with possibilities for the preview, and I don’t really want to hear any spoilers until I see it for myself. But I think all of us Will Ferrell fans are extremely excited by this double dose of movie news.
