Even though its release is months away, Gothamist is excited for Will Ferrell's next movie, Anchorman. Watch the "trailer" (really early clips from Dreamworks) and see Ferrell play a pompous, chauvinistic anchorman from the 70s. He battles with a lady reporter played by Christina Applegate, and has a crack Action News team that includes Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd. The rest of the cast is pretty star-studded - Vince Vaughn, Fred Willard, Chuck D., Tim Robbins. Can't wait until July 9, 2004. In the mean time, our favorite favorite favorite 70s new anchorman, Ted Baxter, will have to do.

Gothamist on Will Ferell in the holiday movie of the year, Elf! We've taken to answering the phone, "This is Gothamist the Elf, what's your favorite color?"
