Opening in theaters on August 10th is the new comedy from director Jay Roach (Dinner for Schmucks) called The Campaign. The film is a political spoof that stars comedians Will Ferrell (Casa de Mi Padre) and Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover), as well as Dylan McDermott (TV's American Horror Story), Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses), Brian Cox (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), John Lithgow (Shrek), Dan Aykroyd (Ghostbusters), and Jack McBrayer (TV's 30 Rock). 

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to attend a special press conference for the film at The Grove in Los Angeles with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis talking about The Campaign. In a debate-type setting, the two actors discussed their new film, their two characters, what their platforms would be if they ran for office, getting the "Latino Vote," and finally passing "Left on Red."
