Brick Tamland is the weatherman and one of the two secondary characters of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Anchorman 2. He is also one of the characters of Wake Up Ron Burgundy. He is one of the main characters of the series and is portrayed by Steve Carell. He is cheerful, bubbly, cute, fun-loving, gentle, happy, innocent, giggly, and dim-witted. In Wake up Ron Burgundy it is mentioned that he was a Captain during The Vietnam War.

He was born in July 25 1927.


Brick is a 48 in first film, 53 year old in second film, nerdy-looking short, broad guy in his forties, with dark hair in a side-part, green eyes, and 1970s-style glasses and clothing. Although at the time of the first film, Brick's clothing (and glasses) were in fashion when the film was set. (i.e- the 1970's).


Brick Tamland is a simple-minded, kind person, who occasionally has fits of rage, like when he speared someone with a trident in the first movie. He is socially awkward and has few friends, but his coworkers include him in their adventures. Doctors claim that Brick has an I.Q. of 48 and is what some people call: "Mentally Retarded". He is a loveable character. It is hypothesized that Brick has Wernicke's Aphasia.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron BurgundyEdit

Brick is Ron's friend and the weatherman for the KVWN news team. Brick often says irrelevant information, despite a good heart. Although he appears devoted, he lacks intelligence, with an I.Q. of 48. This makes him "mentally retarded." In the unrated version of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Brick said that may have eaten a Chocolate squirrel named Dave

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Edit

Years after the first film it is believed that Brick is dead after Brick was lost at sea because he thought he saw a bird and wanted to pet it but he suddenly reappears at his own funeral. He agrees to go with Ron and the rest of the guys to New York. He soon meets an equally strange woman who also works for GNN, named Chani. Later on he manages to kill off the entire MTV News Team with a gun from the future. He had accidentally killed off Jack Lime and Wes Mantooth by igniting the gasoline with a sparkler, which blew him, Ron, Champ, and Brian to Walter's music recital . He instantly falls in love with her and they marry during the final scene of the movie.One day he will work for the Bush White House. Also, He and Chani will go on to have 11 children, as the narrator states at the end of the first film.
