Actors Ferrell and Galifianakis crack wise at Constitution Center to promote ‘The Campaign’

    Actors Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis made a brief appearance Tuesday morning at a public event at the National Constitutuon Center to promote their upcoming movie “The Campaign.”

    The two men signed a commemorative copy of the U.S. Constitution in honor of its 225th Anniversary. 

    “This is really long,” Ferrell said. “Did you read the whole thing?”

    A selection of Eagles and Flyers players were in attendance as well to bestow custom jerseys upon both Ferrell and Galifianakis.

    “The Campaign,” a comedy about a surprise senatorial race in a traditionally uncontested district, opens Aug. 10. The only question at this point is whether it will be as funny as a real senate race.
