Kanye West Takes Down Steve Carell for ‘Anchorman’ Cameo
You stay classy, San Diego. I’m Kanye West?
That’s right — the rumors proved true. The rapper is the latest star to hop on the ever-more crowded cameo bandwagon for Anchorman: The Legend Continues.
The much-anticipated sequel, which will reunite original Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, Christina Applegate and David Koechner, has already thrown Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Sacha Baron Cohen and Jim Carrey in a fight sequence it’s been filming in Atlanta’s Woodruff Park.
Now it looks like West is throwing down, too, in a brawl that brings to mind the star-studded famous fray from the original film. While the studio is staying mum on his role, new shots from set show West — sporting a noteworthy fro — taking down Carrell’s character, Channel 4 News Team weatherman Brick Tamland, with a hockey stick of all things.
While some seem to have fallen victim in the scuffle, don’t fear — for Ron Burgundy can been seen standing tall, above the defeated. “Don’t act like you’re not impressed.”
