Steve Carell’s Anchorman audition

Here is The Office’s Steve Carell in his audition for the role of weatherman Brick Tamland in the 2004 film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy starring Will Ferrell.

Tipster: Red


  1. Brilliant! He fake eats so well. Brick Tamland is one of the most hilarious characters ever.

  2. Actually, the second scene is in “Wake Up Ron Burgundy”, a second movie edited from outtakes. Some Anchorman editions featured it on a second disc and it’s now included on the new Blu-ray.

    The audition is also there as an extra but the version on YouTube is longer. There’s a new extra on the Blu-ray other The Office fans might enjoy: David Koechner (who ended up as Champ Kind) reading for the Brick Tamland part.

  3. I always thought Steve stole the show with this character :) Good find!

    “Oh, Champ, I think I ate your chocolate squirrel…” XD
