Will Ferrell Dishes on Working with Kanye West on ‘Anchorman 2′
Funnyman Will Ferrell recently discussed his working experience with Kanye West on the set of ‘Anchorman 2′ and surprisingly, it’s not as bad as you would think.
In an interview with ITV’s “Jonathan Ross Show,” Ferrell said that having West on set (he has a cameo in the new film) was “surreal” and that he is “a big fan of comedy.”
Right around the same time Kanye was filming his appearance in ‘Anchorman 2 – The Legend Continues,’ the rapper was putting on the finishing touches for his CD “Yeezus.” Ferrell said West “was playing the new tracks a lot — over and over. Even when your trying to film, he’s playing the tracks.” We’re not sure is that is Ferrell trying to be funny, but he and ‘Anchorman 2′ director Adam McKay later joked about asking a “scared 18-year-old intern to ask him to turn them down.”
It was all good though as apparently West was having so much fun he even came back another day to be in a group fight shot (in which he doesn’t speak!) and brought then girlfriend, now fiance Kim Kardashian to the shoot as well.
