Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis talk 'The Campaign,' and sing: Watch
Comedic heavy-hitters are of one accord on Freedom Fries, the Lord's name and 'Baby Got Back'
NEW YORK -- Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell's opposing political caricatures in "The Campaign" lodge a number of attacks on each other's moral and religious aptitude, reflecting on the current social climate in local and national U.S. elections. "Nobody uses the Lord's name in vain more than politicians do," Galifianakis noted during our interview this week.
He also sings a mean "On the Wings of Love." Sort of. Barely.
"The Campaign," out Friday, is like that: a theater of the absurd and the substantial, a fearful and funny look into kissing babies, debate trash talk, sex, corruption, power and fame in the political arena. The two comedians bring their respective styles to their podiums in the Jay Roach film.
In "real life," Galifianakis is eyeing public office as comptroller, whatever that is, while Ferrell proposes a much more abstract position for himself.
Check out the interview above, where Ferrell and Galifianakis discuss America's dark period of Freedom Fries, the "long slog" of presidential elections, "Baby Got Back" and the Office of Potatoes.
