Will Ferrell Runs For Office

Politics are typically no laughing matter, but given the awesome assemblage of actors who've come together for 2012's The Campaign, chances are you'll never be able to say "stimulus package" with a straight face ever again.

Will Ferrell plays Cam Brady, a North Carolinian politician who goes head to head with Zach Galifianakis' Marty Huggins as they both eye the Oval Office. Joining them on the road to the White House are Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott, John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd, Brian Cox and Josh Lawson.

The Campaign is directed by Jay Roach (Meet The Parents, Austin Powers) and written by Shawn Harwell (Eastbound & Down) alongside Chris Henchy (The Other Guys), so the comedic chops clearly extend behind-the-scenes as well!
