‘Anchorman 2’ Cast Discuss Paul Rudd’s Anti-Aging Methods, Get in Food Fight on ‘Daily Show’

Well, that escalated quickly.

Last night, the news team/cast from Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner) dropped by The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to promote their new project. But, fittingly, this was no ordinary interview promo.

First off, the comedy dream-team soften up Stewart by bringing the host some gifts (paintings, lamp bases, a globe, a straw holder) which were taken directly from the Daily Show green room. “It was the least we could do,” Rudd says. “It seemed really cluttered in there,” Koechner chimed in.

Stewart then awkwardly dishes out some edible treats to Carell (fruit “picked by abused migrant workers,” naturally — the way he likes it). Sitting in the lone swivel chair (a perk for returning Daily Show alum), Carell dished some gossip on his castmates, revealing that Koechner is an “avid porn fanatic” and confirming Stewart’s assumption that Rudd “isn’t aging in a normal human way.” (Seriously, the man looks like he’s 16. I’m a happily married heterosexual male, but heavens to Betsy, that man is adorable!)

Then all hell breaks loose: When Ferrell takes his turn in the swivel chair and makes a move for Carell’s food, the news team turns positively apeshit, unleashing their inner warriors. (Remember, Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy once stated, “I’m a man who discovered the wheel and built the Eiffel Tower out of metal and brawn!” This shouldn’t come as a surprise.)

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is in theaters now.
