Steve Carell

From MTV:

Let’s be honest: with a cast of gifted ad-libbers that includes Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Kristen Wiig, it’s not exactly a surprise to hear that one could, ostensibly, remove all the jokes from “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” and replace them with other, different jokes that are just as funny and a whole lot filthier.

But is there anyone in Hollywood crazy enough to perform such a daring surgical procedure on this masterpiece of modern cinema?

Just kidding, of course there is. And the results are not only real, and not only spectacular, but soon to be available for your viewing pleasure in a special one-week theatrical run.

Director Adam McKay spilled the beans to The New York Times about this unprecedented alternate cut of the film, revealing that the new, Frankensteined Anchorman (Franchorman?) would include 763 new jokes; a replacement of about 95 percent of the original comic material. Forget a blooper reel or extended cut; “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues: Super-Sized R-Rated Version” is basically a whole new movie, coming in at over two hours long and rated R where the original was PG-13.

A special “Rich Mahogany” edition of Anchorman was recently released on Blu-Ray, and among the many extras it contains is a total gem: Steve Carell’s audition tape for Brick. It’s great fun to watch a then little-known comedy actor absolutely delight the casting team and get the script perfectly.
