Bob Schieffer, Chris Matthews and Morley Safer walk into a bar…

CBS News anchor Bob Schieffer, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and “60 Minutes” correspondent Morley Safer play themselves in the new movie “Morning Glory” about a young TV news producer played by Rachel McAdams and the morning show she oversees. These three tvnewsers have a scene at a bar with the anchor of the show played by Harrison Ford. The added punchline: Schieffer, Matthews and Safer don’t drink.

  • Spoiler alert: After the jump, another real-life tvnewser who is featured in the film.

In the movie an aging Harrison Ford is replaced on the evening news by a younger, more authoritative anchor.

That anchor?

Former CNNer Miles O’Brien.
