Kristen Wiig Joins Anchorman 2 Cast
The 'SNL' alum is confirmed to jump on board 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues.'
It's official: Kristen Wiig is joining the cast of the Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Bergundy sequel, Anchorman: The Legend Continues.
And we couldn't be more excited -- and either could her movie mates.Facebook on Monday (January 4), saying, "Kristen Wiig is officially on board for 'Anchorman 2. Couldn't be more excited."
Christina Applegate, a.k.a Channel Four's co-anchor Veronica Corningstone, was equally pumped, tweeting on Tuesday: "So excited Kristen Wiig has joined our cast for anchorman 2. Going 2 b best movie ever made. Besides the best movies ever made."
And while it's still not clear what her role will be, it's been rumored that she will play the love interest to Carell's lovable, but challenged weatherman, Brick Tamland.
While we're sure the Bridesmaids star will have explosive chemistry with funny man Carell, we're even more psyched that Applegate will have a female partner-in-crime to play with.
Are you excited that Wiig is joining the cast? Who do you hope she plays, someone as awkward as Brick, or more of a cougar (or shall we say panther) type?
