We had the opportunity to sit down with the pair, as well as director Jay Roach and co-star Dylan McDermott, at the New York press event for the film to talk about political hair, manufacturing a candidate and finding the humor in the all to real arena of public office.

Take a look at our video interviews below.

You can also take a look at our interview with the comedic duo from Comic-Con below (watch as John Campea makes way with all their cash).


When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: naïve Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors' support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family's political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about. As Election Day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other, in this mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking comedy from "Meet the Parents" director Jay Roach that takes today's political circus to its logical next level. Because even when you think campaign ethics have hit rock bottom, there's room to dig a whole lot deeper.

Jay Roach directs a cast that includes Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis, Katherine LaNasa, Dylan McDermott, John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd and Brian Cox.

"The Campaign" opens in AMC Theatres on August 10th purchase your tickets HERE!
