St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - Comedic actors Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis will be in town next week as part of a fake campaign tour to promote their political satire film "The Campaign."
Ferrell ("Anchorman") and Galifianakis ("The Hangover") star as rivals running for a seat in the U.S. Congress.
St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay's office has said the mayor will proclaim July 17 "Will and Zach Day" for the comedians' visit.
The promotional event is scheduled for Tuesday, July 17 at Kiener Plaza and begins at 6 p.m. It is free and open to the public. Ferrell and Galifianakis are said to be appearing in character and will be doing the requisite handshaking and baby kissing.
"The Campaign" opens August 10 nationwide.
