Start Spreading the News

In his new comedy, "Anchorman, The Legend of Ron Burgundy," Will Ferrell takes viewers back to a time when men where men and news was exclusively a manís job.

It was a breeze for Will Ferrell to step into the white patent leather shoes of "Ron Burgundy" for his new film, because as he told "Extra," he actually worked as a sportscaster in college. So whoís a better newscaster -- Will Ferrell or Ron Burgundy? "Probably Ron," Ferrell admitted to us. "You can't argue with Ron Burgundy's delivery, it's confident, heís very sure of himself."

While Ferrell told us that the hardest part of the movie was keeping a straight face on set with co-star Christina Applegate, a fact confirmed by outtakes showing the cast busting each other up in the middle of takes.

But Christina revealed another "Anchorman" challenge: the '70 wardrobe -- especially the clothes worn by the guys. "The clothes were hideous," she revealed. "The guys were warm, dripping, sweaty, stinky, ugly, bad colors."

You can see a hilarious Will Ferrell (with and withou clothes) on the big screen when "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" hits theaters July 9th. And for a look at more hilarious outtakes and behind the scenes antics, donít miss the upcoming "Anchorman" special on Cinemax to see just how much fun Will and Christina had.
