Details on how talent can submit for acting roles, and registration information for extras can be found on the following casting post:
The original film "Anchorman" had a budget of $26 million and grossed more than $90 million worldwide. It starred Will Ferrell as Ronald Joseph Aaron "Ron" Burgund, the ignorant, egotistical, misogynistic, and narcissistic main anchorman for the KVWN Channel 4 News Team from 1964 to 1977. Christina Applegate played the ambitious aspiring network anchor Veronica Corningstone. Paul Rudd was the arrogant field reporter Brian Fantana. Steve Carell shined as Brick Tamland, the not so smart weatherman for the KVWN news team. Kristen Wiig has joined the cast for "Anchorman 2" playing Steve Carell's wife.
