The Campaign

The project originally started out being titled Southern Rivals and evolved into Dog Fight, but now the political comedy from director Jay Roach has settled for The Campaign, and now our first look at Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis as rival politicians. In the film Ferrell plays a Southern congressman who becomes embroiled in a public scandal, opening the door to a challenge from an unlikely Beltway outsider played by the beardless Zack Galifianakis, looking more like his "twin brother" Seth Galifianakis now. With just a single picture, this film is already better than the real presidential campaign this year. See it below!

Here's our first look at Jay Roach's political comedy The Campaign from EW:

The Campaign - First Look

Jay Roach who has moved from comedies like Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and Meet the Parents to HBO's political dramas like Recount and Game Change is combining his experience for The Campaign, written by Chris Henchy (The Other Guys) and Shawn Harwell ("Eastbound & Down"). The film has Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis as congressional rivals from the South and also features a fantastic cast including Dan Ayrkroyd, Jason Sudeikis, Brian Cox, John Lithgow, Dylan McDermott and more. The film is expected to hit theaters just a couple months before the presidential election on August 10th, 2012.

 Yeah, I know Seth Galifianakis isn't a real person. I'm sure some probably don't though.

Zach Galafanakis is in.  Jack Black is out.  Jack Black must hate him with a passion.
