It seems quite serendipitous for comedy superstars Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis to finally share the same screen in The Campaign, and yet shocking at the same time that they haven't done so before. Back in February, I was invited down to New Orleans to visit the set of this upcoming (and perfectly-timed) political comedy.

In case you haven't seen any of the trailers, TV spots, or, if you live in Hollywood like me, the hilarious billboards, The Campaign, arriving in theaters August 10, centers on a four-term incumbent, Cam Brady (Will Ferrell), who finds himself running against the eccentric Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis) for the Congressional seat in a small North Carolina district. The comedy was actually entitled Dog Fight when we were on the set, a title that still suits this movie quite well, since these candidates go after each other's reputations... and kids... and wives... in hilarious and unorthodox ways. »
