‘Anchorman 2′: Has Terence Stamp Joined the Sequel?

San Diego looks like it might get even classier. A rumor is swirling that the Adam McKay sequel, ‘Anchorman 2,’ has brought aboard The Limey himself, Terence Stamp, to star alongside Will Ferrell and the gang in ‘The Legend Continues.’ But if it’s true, what role could Stamp possibly take on? Break out of this glass case of emotion and jump past the break to find out!

An AintItCoolNews tipster recently attended a screening of the new Stamp-led film ‘Song for Marion’ and got the good word from Stamp himself. When the actor spoke about what his upcoming projects were, he mentioned that “Will Ferrell’s people had reached out to see if he would be interested in playing a Rupert Murdoch-type figure in Ferrell’s next film.”

One doesn’t have to do too much deep thinking to realize this likely means ‘Anchorman: The Legend Continues,’ which is currently casting. A “Rupert Murdoch-type” figure could conceivably be the villain in the sequel; perhaps he’ll plot a takeover of KVWN-TV? (Pure speculation on our part.)

Evidently, Stamp said he would love to take part in this project, but he’s not yet been officially offered the part. For our part, we hope the deal goes through and Stamp appears next to Ron, Champ and the rest of the Channel 4 News Team.

‘Anchorman: The Legend Continues’ opens on December 20, 2013.
