Will Ferrell Chats about having Kanye West on “Anchorman 2” Set
We got that chance when the "SNL" alum stopped by The Jonathan Ross Show and dished about the Yeezus rapper’s cameo in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.”
"It was very surreal to have Kanye—who's such a big fan of comedy—in our movie hanging out for two days," Will explained during his chat. "He was playing the new tracks a lot—over and over. Even when you're trying to film, he's playing the tracks."
And if the tracks interfered with filming, the 46-year-old joked, "We got a scared 18-year-old intern to ask him to turn them down.”
The Ron Burgundy actor continued, "He hung out, even after we said: ‘You're done.’ He was like, ‘no, no' and stayed in the background, hanging out and fighting with people."
Sounds like fun! Will and Kanye join a huge all-star cast including Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Sacha Baron Cohen, Liam Neeson, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, James Marsden, Paul Rudd and Steve Carell, just to name a few.
Check out “Anchorman 2” in theaters starting December 18.
