Rays 3B Evan Longoria enjoyed watching the first Anchorman movie, and this past weekend, through MLB officials, he got the opportunity to sit down and interview cast members of the new film, Anchorman 2.

"We are in ongoing conversation with our star players about major promotional appearances,'' said Jeff Heckelman, MLB's director of business PR. "When we uncovered the opportunity with Anchorman 2, Evan was our first choice. We have worked with him in the past and know that he has a great personality, is a fan of the movie and that he would be a great fit in this setting.''

The video was taped in New York - by the MLB Fan Cave crew - as part of the cast's press tour.

Longoria obviously got a kick out of the experience, and his fiancee, Jaime Edmondson, was also impressed, tweeting: "You are now the coolest person I know"
