Kristen Wiig Joins The Cast of Anchorman 2! What Else Do We Know About The Sequel?

What do you get when you cross Anchorman and Bridesmaids? We don’t know but hopefully it’ll look something like Anchorman 2 or as it’s officially titled Anchorman: The Legend Continues. That’s right, as Will Ferrell continues the legend of Ron Burgundy, news has reached us that comedienne du jour Kristen Wiig has also signed up to the cast of the long-awaited second instalment. And that’s not all…

1. Ron Burgundy made a special announcement…

It was a long time coming but Will Ferrell - as Channel 4 News’ Ron Burgundy - decided to dust off his flute and pay Conan a visit to announce that he and Paramount had come to an agreement regarding the status of the sequel. He alluded to what might follow and after a lot of waffle, here’s what we deduced: it’s happening.

2. The Channel 4 News Team are back!

It’s not just Will Ferrell who’s back for the sequel. Paul Rudd will be returning as are the other two members of the Channel 4 News team, David Koechner and Steve Carell. The funny foursome released a teaser trailer last year reminding us of just how much we laughed the first time around…

3. Judd Apatow recruits an old friend

We know just how much Judd Apatow likes to work with his friends. Once you’ve worked with him once, you can almost guarantee a job in any future movie he makes. So as a producer on Anchorman: The Legend Continues, not only will we see star of This Is 40 Paul Rudd return, he’s also managed to sign up the leading lady of Bridesmaids, Kristen Wiig. We got a little sneak preview of just how well Will and Kristen work together at this year’s Golden Globes ceremony…
