The hottest campaign in North Carolina this season features a longtime congressman with perfectly coifed hair against an oddball challenger. Think: trash talking, unapologetic pandering and baby kissing.
But sadly, it's just a movie. "The Campaign" featuring actors Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis debuts Friday with more than a few obvious North Carolina connections.
The two actors battle for the state's (fictional) 14th congressional district with scenes from Greensboro and elsewhere. Ferrell, who depicts a candidate with "hair so strong it could lift a car off a baby if it had to," said recently that John Edwards was a model for much of his role.
