Did you hear, there's a new "Anchorman" movie on the way! Yeah, I know, we're excited too! That's why we called up David Koechner (AKA Champ Kind) to talk about it. In other big news, it turns out some whales may be mimicking human noises, including Chick's Sports theme. We also talk to Frank Caliendo about his new role on ESPN, and Costaki has a few NFL jokes for us.
Famous for his roles on "The Office" as Todd Packer and in Anchorman as Champ Kind, David Koechner is one of those actors that your immediately recognize as soon as you see him on the screen. And along with the exiting news David, Steve Carrell, Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd are getting back together for Anchorman 2, Koechner is also happy to let you know that he plans on crushing you in the Bud Light Fantasy Football League. Follow David on facebook and twitter.
Costaki Economopoulos is a comedian, true, but he's also a football fan. Those two factors alone make him the perfect candidate to give us a comedic look back at the NFL each week with his new feature that's also been picked up by The Huffington Post and Bleacher Report. With his Greek heritage, it's not surprising that he's been described as a “joke philosopher,” and we're sure he's not the only one saying that. Costaki is also a talented joke writer who's punchlines have been heard on "The Tonight Show," Showtime, BET, and MTV. Follow Costaki on facebook and twitter.
Is that John Madden, Dr. Phil, Charles Barkley, Robin Williams, Al Pacino, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush in the studio at the same time? No, it's just comedian and impressionist Frank Caliendo, but we can see where you'd be fooled. Caliendo was the star of the TBS show, "Frank TV," has appeared on a number of late night programs, had his own Vegas show for many years, and is the new comedic component of ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown.
