Brick is a nerdy-looking short, broad guy in his forties, with dark hair in a side-part, 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 appears to say irrelevant information, although has a good heart, he appears to be devoted but lacks intelligence having an I.Q. of 48 making him "mentally retarded".
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Edit
Years after the first film it is believed that Brick is dead 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. 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.
"I'm Brick Tamland. People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks. Years later, a doctor will tell me that I have an I.Q. of 48 and am what some people call mentally retarded."
