It’s not the first time Will Ferrell has sported a mustache, looking back and remembering his portrayal of Alex Trebek on Saturday Night Live, but it’s a good guess that this time, the grey-tinged bush under his nose is for a different reason.
The word on the streets is that Will Ferrell is preparing for his role as Ron Burgundy in the upcoming sequel to the comedy hit, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Ferrell was seen in several locales in Florida recently, minus Baxter, but sporting the brush, (or is it bush?) plus some additional fuzz on the cheeks.
“Is that mustache real?'” he said in an ABC News interview. “Of course, I say, ‘Yes, why would I be wearing a fake mustache?’ I mean, why would I be walking around wearing a fake mustache?”

The sequel, Anchorman: The Legend Continues takes us on a journey into the beginnings of journalism as the genre learns to cope with celebrity news and its impact on the industry. Here’s the big question: Will Ferrell be able to repeat the success of his first Anchorman role?
Adam McKay, writer of Anchorman, Step Brothers, and Talladega Nights sat down with The Playlist this past summer to talk about the film.
“We were going to do ‘Anchorman 2′ as a Broadway musical first, for like six months and then go shoot the movie. That was our initial idea,” he said. Thankfully, for those of us who couldn’t stop ourselves from memorizing every single line from first Anchorman, that idea was scrapped. Instead they’re going with a few musical bits within the film.
“Whole song sequences, absolutely. The music sequences we have done — we did ‘Afternoon Delight’ [in ‘Anchorman’], Adam Scott and his family singing ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ [in ‘Step Brothers’], we did a whole song for ‘Talladega Nights‘ that got cut out, a big, big musical number […] We’ll probably do it the same way in this. This one might have a little more movement in it, and the only problem with that is the actors get winded.”
Anchorman: The Legend Continues is due to be released October 2013.
