James Marsden: 'I Guess I Got Funny All of a Sudden!'

James Marsden: 'I Guess I Got Funny All of a Sudden!'

James Marsden is broodingly sexy in a new fashion feature for Mr Porter‘s The Journal, live online right now.

Here is what the 40-year-old Anchorman 2 actor had to share with the mag:

On doing comedies more often lately: “I don’t know what happened. I guess I got funny all of a sudden!”

On his role in Anchorman: “I play Jack, the cocky hotshot news anchor who has a bit of a competition with Ron Burgundy at the network. It was such a blast. Those guys are such masters of improvisation. It’s amazing how unselfish they are. I got the jitters a bit at first, but Will and Adam [McKay, Mr Ferrell's producing partner] are very welcoming of new talent. They encourage you to come up with your own jokes. Huge safety net. The real challenge was just keeping it together and not laughing. The big prize was getting Will to crack. I did it twice!”

On turning 40: “I knew it was coming for so long, it was as if I’d already dealt with it. I’d already grieved!”

    Marsh,
    Norma here, friendships from the Towers, River Towers in Richmond, VA. Sitting poolside was a great experience there at the Towers. Life’s lessons. Remember the disadvantages of riding hard and tough on a motorcycle. You survived that, you will survive being 40. God help me, you are only 40 and looking good. Do you recall by taking a break from all ‘the glitz and glamour’ there surfaces a bit of reality? Remember, drink more bottled water. Norma
