Zach Galifianakis Runs for Office in New ‘Campaign’ Trailer and TV Spots

Wilksboro, NC native Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover, Due Date) co-stars in The Campaign with Will Ferrell (Elf, Anchorman), as two rival North Carolina poiticians in a contest for a seat on the U.S. House of Representatives.

A new theatrical trailer for the comedy was released last week, along with four TV spots and two new posters, all of which you can check out below!

When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district.  Their man: naïve Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. 

 At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors’ support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family’s political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about.

'The Campaign' stars Will Ferrell.

The cast also includes Dan Aykroyd, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Jack McBrayer, Dylan McDermott, Sarah Baker, and SNL‘s Jason Sudeikis – who begins shooting We’re the Millers with Jennifer Aniston in Wilmington, NC this week.

Jay Roach (Meet the Parents, Austin Powers) is the director.
