A hefty majority of the humor in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues comes from the channel 4 news team. While they all had a shared sense of male entitlement, the members of the KVWN boys club all brought a different aspect of the stereotypically macho mentality of the 1970s to the big screen.
Ron (Will Ferrell) was a textbook alpha male, Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) was the womanizer, and Champ Kind (David Koechner) was a bit of a burly brute. But, for many, the standout of the crew was Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), who often displayed the mental fortitude of a broom handle.
Even though the rest of the news crew felt a collective responsibility to keep Brick out of harm’s way, they also had a lot of fun at his expense through his impulsive actions and willingness to do whatever they said. But that’s also led to a whole lot of laughs.
Enjoy some of the laughs from the Anchorman films once again by looking at Brick Tamland’s best quotes.
