Will Ferrell stole bus during Anchorman filming

Dec 17 2013, 5:36am CST | by

Will Ferrell stole a bus while filming 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues'.

The 46-year-old actor almost ended up behind bars after he hijacked the single-deck vehicle with his co-stars and whizzed around Atlanta, Georgia, the stunt attracted the attention of police who followed them around the city.

He recalled: "On a lunch break, we stole a city bus, and we were just driving it through the streets of Atlanta and the cops were chasing us. It was art imitating life. We were gone for four hours, and then we hopped out of the bus and said, 'Hey, it's us,' and everyone had a big laugh."

Meanwhile, the funnyman admits he was surprised by Kanye West, who has a cameo appearance in the sequel, and his passion for comedy, and admired his creativity and dedication to his career.

Speaking to the Confidenti@l column in the New York Daily News newspaper, he explained: "That was really fascinating because he came on the set and he was the exact antithesis of what you thought he'd be. He was such a fan of comedy, he was almost reverential and quiet around us.

"He stayed for two days. He wanted to hang around the whole time, but he's probably the most prolific, creative person I've ever been around, because while he was off set he was on the phone talking about a photo shoot, he was writing down lyrics. His mind is constantly working."

However, he recently admitted the 'New Slaves' rapper caused a scene on the set after he refused to turn down his music and reduced a young intern to tears.

He said last week: "Even when you're trying to film, he's playing the tracks. They're loud too. We got a scared 18-year-old intern to ask him to turn them down."

Kanye West Once Lost An Audition for ‘Semi-Pro’ to Andre 3000

Jul 22 2014 12:51pm CDT | Source: 92.3 NOW

Kanye West is really, really good at being himself. Playing the roles of others? Not so much, apparently. Before the rapper made his acting debut in a cameo role in Anchorman 2, the rapper tried out for a part in another Will Ferrell film, 2008’s Semi-Pro. According to Gawker, West’s audition tape was very unlike the general quality of his music – which is to say, it was bad. Really bad. He mysteriously wore an afro wig in the audition tape and seemed uncomf ...

How 'Boyhood' Editor Sandra Adair Helped Shape The Film's 12-Year Evolution

Jul 20 2014 2:24pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

You can't work with the same group of people for 12 years and not come to feel a certain kinship towards them. And indeed that's how the creative team behind Richard Linklater's decade-in-the-making film "Boyhood" have framed their experience, with the movie's young star Ellar Coltrane—who ages from age 6 to 18 during the course of the 166-minute coming-of-age epic—recently telling The New York Times that he considers Linklate ...
