Anchorman 2‘ will experience a major shift from the first film by sending our favorite Channel 4 news team to the Big Apple. That means there’s room to add plenty of new faces to the cast, and that list keeps getting longer with the new additions of Greg Kinnear and Josh Lawson.

Harrison Ford and James Marsden are the two big names most recently cast to join Ron Burgundy and his cohorts in the upcoming ‘Anchorman 2,’ and now Kinnear (‘Little Miss Sunshine’) and Lawson (‘House of Lies’) are joining in as well in unspecified roles, according to Deadline.

Directed by Adam McKay, ‘Anchorman 2′ brings back Will Ferrell, Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, while Ford, Marsden, Kristen Wiig, John C. Reilly, Dylan Baker and Meagan Good have either unofficially or officially boarded as some of the newbies. Not much is known yet about the plot, though it’ll probably have something to do with Wiig as Brick’s love interest, Ford as Burgundy’s journalist mentor and Marsden as his rival newsman.

What do you think about this latest casting bit? Who else do you want to see come back/join ‘Anchorman 2′?
