The amazing news this week that Ron Burgundy was making a comeback to the silver screen for an Anchorman sequel had us breaking out our jazz flutes in celebration. It's simply one of the funniest movies ever made. But it also got us thinking... what would happen if there was a sports version of Anchorman? What would happen if Anchorman 2 was set in Bristol, Connecticut and featured ESPN personalities? Who would be the stars of Bristol's Action Four news team...
Ron Burgundy - Chris Berman
Who else could fill the massive shoes of Ron Burgundy than the man that is more synonymous with Bristol, Connecticut than any other? Berman is one of the few characters that could match the aura of Burgundy on the television screen. His catchphrases, nicknames, personality, and decades long run at the top of ESPN makes him the clearcut choice to lead the Bristol Action Four news team. Away from the cameras, Berman has everything you could ask for as well - drug related tutorials, expletive filled rants, and little knowledge of modern day society. Berman may even believe diversity is an old, wooden ship too. As an added bonus, he's got the porn stache in the old bag of tricks.
Brian Fantana - Jay Bilas
The suave reporter known for his smooth delivery and sex-crazed antics has to be played by an individual whose swag knows no boundaries. It has to be someone whose self-confidence borders on the edge of a psychological disorder. That man is Jay Bilas. His swag can't be contained. Who else not just in sports, but the world, would even think to tweet this to hundreds of thousands of followers, "Just passed Gene Simmons of KISS in NOLA. He was in such awe of my swag, it caused him to swallow his own tongue. 911 called." Jay Bilas has so much swag that sex panthers use his cologne. John Clayton was also considered for this role.
