A couple of months ago it was reported that Kristen Wiig might join the cast of Anchorman: The Legend Continues. I'm happy to say that she's now officially on board! Director Adam McKay recently tweeted the following confirmation...
Just found out Kristen Wiig officially on board for Anchorman 2.Cannonball!— Adam McKay (@GhostPanther) February 5, 2013
This would only be the second time that Wiig and Will Ferrell have been in a film together. The only other movie they did together was 2008's Semi-Pro, and she only had a small role. Her role will be a little bigger this time around as she'll be playing Steve Carell's love interest in the story. I think Wiig is hilarious, and I'm happy that she ended up joining the film!
The story follows the on-set adventures of San Diego’s top newsman, and it was previously revealed that it will partly be a musical, so that's something to look forward to! Check out the funny awesomeness of Wiig and Ferrell presenting at the Golden Globes below!
