Fan-favorite actor Harrison Ford has joined the cast of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues! Ford is known for a lot of things, but making comedies really isn't one of them.
Ford will play legendary newscaster Tom Brokaw in the Adam McKay-directed comedy. The movie starts shooting this month in Atlanta, and will also take place in New York. This wouldn't be the first time Ford has played an anchorman either, he previously played one in the film Morning Glory, which was kind of a dud.
I never expected to see an actor like Ford join this film production, but I'm sure he'll be awesome! This is going to have such a fun ensemble cast of comedic actors that also includes Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Steve Carell, Christina Applegate, and Kristen Wiig. You can bet that there's going to be even more cameos as well. It was also previously revealed that the movie will partly be a musical.
Ford is expected to return as Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode VII, which is going to be amazing to see as well!
