While there is light at the end of the tunnel for the sequel to Anchorman, it still seems like the movie is a millions miles away. But a sequel is coming and I, along with a lot of other folks, can’t wait for it to get here. So while we patiently wait for Will Ferrell and company to hopefully deliver a sequel that is worthy of its predecessor, this bit of rumored casting news could turn that excitement up a notch or two: Kristen Wiig as a love interest for Steve Carell? Maybe…
While this bit of information is at this point just speculation, you gotta admit that Wiig would be a nice addition to the cast. Having her play a love interest to Carell’s Brick Tamland could be a stroke of genius. Wiig can definitely play it weird/quiet/kinda creepy, which is what I envision in my head as the type of character who might take an interest in Brick. And then watching those two interact as a courtship ensues...that could be pretty fricking funny.
Hopefully this bit of news comes to fruition. Hopefully Anchorman: The Legend Continues doesn’t end up being a lame duck sequel that makes everyone say the actors only got into this project for the cash grab. I have faith that won’t happen though.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues is due to arrive sometime in 2013. Hopefully this movie gets rolling soon, I would hate for it to get pushed into 2014. That would not be a classy move.
