Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell certainly have great chemistry, that was very clear when they hit the stage together at the Golden Globes earlier this year. Now, Kristen has signed on to join Will in ‘Anchorman 2!’
Director Adam McKay made the announcement via his Facebook page on Monday night, simply stating: “Kristen Wiig is officially on board for Anchorman 2. Couldn’t be more excited.”
The sequel to the 2004 smash “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” will also feature the hilarious returning cast of Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carrell and Dave Koechner.
No word on what Wiig’s character will entail, but we’re pretty sure we could watch her read a phone book and still be thoroughly entertained.
The newest flick isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until December, but if you’re in need of a quick Ron Burgundy fix now, watch below to re-live the moment when Ferrell (as Ron) announced the sequel on “Conan.”
I have a confession. When ‘Anchorman’ came out, I didn’t find it funny at all. In fact, I really didn’t see what all the hype was about – at all. But over the years I’ve seen it several times, and it really grew on me. I’m THRILLED to hear that Kristen has joined the cast for the second film, it’s the icing on the cake. She’s one of my favorite female comedians – if not my #1 favorite.
Who’s excited for ‘Anchorman 2’!?
