Fresh Air Weekend: The Coen Brothers And 'Anchorman 2'

Fresh Air Weekendhighlights some of the best interviews and reviews from past weeks, and new program elements specially paced for weekends. Our weekend show emphasizes interviews with writers, filmmakers, actors, and musicians, and often includes excerpts from live in-studio concerts. This week:

The Coen Bros. On Writing, 'Lebowski' And Literally Herding Cats:Inside Llewyn Davis — starring Oscar Isaac and a disobedient cat — is the latest from the filmmaking duo. The brothers talk with Fresh Air's Terry Gross about their writing process ("It's mostly napping") and the cult status of their 1998 filmThe Big Lebowski ("How do you explain that? I have no idea.")

A 'Kind Of A Big Deal' Gets Even Bigger In 'Anchorman 2':In a sequel, Ron Burgundy makes the leap from local to national news. "We felt like we needed to jack up the stakes," says director and co-writer Adam McKay. He and star Will Ferrell join Terry Gross to talk about making movies — and that epic 'stache.
