The "Anchorman 2" cast just got better with the addition of actress Kristen Wiig. Having Wiig as a member of the cast raises the bar even further for the film, especially when just about every actor from the original film will be back. According to a report from Tuesday (Feb. 5), the "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" cast already includes Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Steve Carell, and Paul Rudd.
This is really shaping up to be a huge comedy when it finally hits theaters, especially since Wiig is rumored to be the love interest of Carell's character in the film. It will be interesting to see if she plays his opposite or if the writers decide to really go for it with her comedic talents. Wiig has been pretty busy since deciding to leave "Saturday Night Live," but i'ts great to see she made time for this role.
"Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is due in theaters on December 20, 2013. That might seem like a long time to wait and hopefully it gives the actors and writers time to do it right. The original film is held in very high regard when it comes to comedies, so the "Anchorman 2" cast has an awful lot to live up to. Adding Kristen Wiig to the mix certainly pushes the film in the right direction though.
