James Marsden
is the best kind of guy -- funny and hot! 

The "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" star opens up to MrPorter.com where he reveals what it was like working with Will Ferrell on the second installment of the hilarious flick -- and looks super hot in the accompanying photo spread. 

"I don't know what happened," he says of landing the role. "I guess I got funny all of a sudden!"

In the past, the actor has done well for himself in romcoms like "27 Dresses," "Enchanted" and "Bachelorette" -- but he's finally going to get the chance to show off his comedy skills. 

"I play Jack, the cocky hotshot news anchor who has a bit of a competition with Ron Burgundy at the network," he says. "It was such a blast. Those guys are such masters of improvisation. It's amazing how unselfish they are."

The 40-year-old should be proud of himself -- he got Ron Burgundy himself to break character while filming!

"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!," he tells the site. 

We can't wait to see James and the rest of the guys in "Anchorman 2" -- are you excited to see Marsden's comedic chops?
