Meet Jack Lime

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Trailer

This is Jack Lime (James Marsden), the hotshot anchor who is GNN’s shining star, and who appears to be the new nemesis for Ron, a fitter, happier, more productive version of Vince Vaughn’s Wes Mantooth. This scene is the first time the two meet, across a crowded GNN newsroom, and it doesn’t go well for Ron.

“We always imagined him as Terminator 2, the living mercury guy,” says McKay. “He’s the next generation of killer anchor, who’s more handsome, smarter, more confident, and just makes Burgundy feel like Schwarzenegger in Terminator 2.”

But Ferrell and McKay are keen not to simply repeat themselves with Anchorman 2, so don’t expect Lime to replay the Mantooth beats. “Jack comes in as a nemesis of sorts, but a bunch of different things happen with him. We tried not to make it predictable where it’s just nemesis, nemesis, nemesis, showdown! We tried to give it some left turns and right turns.”
