Moviefone Hosts Best Will Ferrell Character Tournament (updated)
No doubt inspired by the NCAA Basketball tournament, Moviefone has it’s own version of “March Madness” by hosting fan voting for the best Will Ferrell character. Round one is underway and will continue through the month. Here’s a link to use to vote each day.
Regions and Seeding
Saint Diego Region
- Ron Burgundy (Anchorman)
- Chaz (Wedding Crashers)
- Mustafa (Austin Powers)
- Nick (Everything Must Go)
- Frank (Old School)
- Jackie Moon (Semi-Pro)
- Allen (The Other Guys)
- Brennan (Step Brothers)
- Ricky Bobby (Talladega Nights)
- Mugatu (Zoolander)
- Megamind (Megamind)
- Phil (Kicking & Screaming)
Arctic Puffin Region
- Buddy the Elf (Elf)
- Chazz Michael Michaels (Blades of Glory)
- Steve Burtabi (Night at the Roxbury)
- Marshal Willenholly (Jay & Silent Bob)
This is a good list overall, though I’d probably have put in Harold Crick from Stranger Than Fiction in there instead of Marshal Willenholly. Speaking of which, it’s a sad commentary that Land of the Lost is not represented. Well, maybe not that sad, actually. And since this is Moviefone, no SNL characters (sorry Gene Frenkle fans)
There’s not a doubt in my mind that the finals will come down to Ron Burgundy vs. Buddy the Elf. And you’ve got to think Burgundy has the edge in a contest held in March rather than December. Personally, I’m rooting for Mugatu but that’s just me.
Moviefone announced to the surprise of nobody that Ron Burgundy won the tournament.
