5 Reasons Why James Marsden Never Gets the Girl
3. Jack Lime in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” (2013)
Well, that’s funny. ‘Cause I got nowhere to be because you pretty much destroyed my career. Do you realize what it did to me, by making myself call me “Jack Lame”? It was a living hell!
In “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” Jack Lime is a GNN’s top prime-time star news anchor until Will Ferrel’s Ron Burgundy spills onto the scene. Slowly the reigning champ of NYC news is diminished and ultimately overshadowed by the scotch-fueled powerhouse that is Burgundy. Marsden’s Lime is even forced to refer to himself as ‘Lame’ upon losing a bet to the mustachioed Burgundy.
The Dirty: Once in the center of the Lime-Light, Marsden’s Jack Lime, is now just ‘Lame.’ How can you respect such Lame-ness?
The Silver Lining: He dies… I guess that isn’t much of a silver lining… or maybe he was spared further humiliation? At-least it was death by sparkler?
