Steve Carell found Will Ferrell ''almost impossible'' to work with because he's so funny. The 51-year-old actor didn't hesitate to sign up for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
as he had the ''best fun'' ever working on the original movie in 2004, but struggled to keep his composure while filming some of the hilarious scenes. Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz at the premiere of the new comedy at The Odeon in London's Leicester Square Wednesday evening, the former The Office
star said: ''There's a scene we did in a lighthouse with Ron and it's probably the scene I laughed the hardest at. Will was so especially funny that day, it was almost impossible to get it [the scene] done.''
He added: ''It was the best fun I've
had. None of us questioned going back to make this film.''
Other cast members that walked the burgundy carpet included Will, Christina Applegate and Paul Rudd. David Koechner, who plays Champ Kind, said filming the sequel was a ''remarkable experience.'' He said: ''We just enjoy each other's company, I thought the script was amazing when I first read it. Every day getting to play with these guys and work, get back together, it was a truly remarkable experience. Will's an amazing guy, he's so super funny. These guys always write amazing comedy.'' He added: ''It's a bit weirder than a lot of stuff but people respond to it.''
