James Marsden is a handsome jerk in new Anchorman 2 clip
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is less than a month away. So it's time to meet Ron Burgundy's latest adversary — Jack Lime.
Paramount has released a clip from next month's Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. In it, Ron Burgundy and his crew (Brian, Champ and Brick) visit the Global News Network aka GNN. It's completely different from their old stomping ground and they need to adjust.
GNN is a 24-hour news channel that has a large team of anchors. Burgundy is no longer top dog and gets his first taste of competition in this clip. While taking a tour of the office, he's introduced to Jack Lime, played by James Marsden.
Lime is described as "the best in the biz" and Burgundy is completely mesmerized by him. That is, until he opens his mouth. It turns out that Lime's a bit of a jerk and ends up embarrassing Burgundy in front of everyone. He openly mocks Burgundy's speech and asks him if he wants an autograph.
It looks like Anchorman 2 will be a battle of the arrogant titans. We thought no one's ego could touch Burgundy's, but we were wrong. Lime's younger, more handsome and has hair that won't quit. How can anyone compete with that?
