Many of us are looking forward to the second installment in the life of Ron Burgundy and the new trailer for “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” does not disappoint. It appears Ron is on the national stage now and his wife, Veronica Corningstone, is his new rival. Although I’m sure it won’t be able to live up to the hype or be nearly as good as the first one, I know without a doubt I’ll be going to see it.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Harrison Ford has signed on to be part of the Anchorman 2 cast. Ford will reportedly play the role of a prominent newscaster in the sequel to 2004’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Think along the lines of Tom Brokaw or Peter Jennings.
The movie will begin shooting this month in Atlanta with Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate and David Koechner returning from the original. A few months ago it was anounced that Kristen Wiig would be added as Brick Tamland’s (Carell) love interest.
As we speculated at the beginning of December, Kristen Wiig will be joining the already stellar cast for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Initial reports said that Wiig would be the love interest of the trident throwing, inept weatherman Brick Tamland. Now, reports are claiming that Kristen Wiig will be the wife of the bear riding, lamp loving doofus.
Assuming the Mayans were wrong, we will all be in for a treat next holiday season. This time next year, we will be celebrating the holiday season with Ron Burgundy, Champ Kind, Brick Tamland and Brian Fontana. Unfortunately for us, we still have a full year to wait but at least we can begin the countdown now. Director of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, Adam McKay, tweeted out the news last night with a specific date for everyone to mark on their calendars. Christmas will definitely be coming early for a lot of us next year.
Brick’s going to love more than just lamp.
Hopefully reports are true and Kristen Wiig will be joining the already stellar cast of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. According to AceShowBiz.com, Wiig will play the love interest of Steve Carell’s Brick Tamland. I don’t think I need to remind everyone how brilliant Carell was as Tamland in the first Anchorman waaaay back in 2004. Adding Wiig by his side could very well steal the movie away from Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate and David Koechner.
