‘Anchorman’ Ron Burgundy Interviews Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning for ESPN’s ‘SportsCenter’
Who wouldn’t love a little Ron Burgundy action to start their morning?
“Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” fictional characters Ron Burgundy and Champ Kind (portrayed by Will Ferrell and David Koechner) had been scheduled to host “SportsCenter” tonight.
However, the segment has been postponed by ESPN’s coverage of Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winston’s ongoing legal troubles tied to an alleged rape.
That did not stop ESPN from releasing an awesome Burgundy interview with Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
Ferrell, in character as Burgundy, asks Manning hard-hitting questions on topics including facial hair and the NFL team’s mascot, Thunder. It’s really quite a treat to watch.
Manning takes it all in stride; he’s really a great guy. While you can tell at one point he wants to crack up laughing, he manages to hold back.
The sequel to the 2004 film “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” “Anchorman 2″ is being released Dec. 18.
