As 'Anchorman 2' has begun shooting, casting is now filling in quite nicely, and on top of the core five of Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, and Christina Applegate, and new additions Kristen Wiig and James Marsden, now Meagan Good and Dylan Baker have officially joined the cast.
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
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!
We know that times are tough in this economy, but we never could have imagined things would get this bad - especially for a guy like Will Ferrell. The comedian appears to have fallen on a big old rough patch, as he was spotted last night working security for the L.A. Lakers.
Of course, it ended up being quite funny, because Will was at his stone-faced best.
Though they're still working on script, and should start filming shortly - even after releasing a teaser this summer - we only have a small inkling of what's in store for us when 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues' hits theaters next year. But now the picture has a release date, and it means only one thing: Will Ferrell is gunning for an Oscar.
Now that Kristen Wiig has left 'Saturday Night Live,' we know she's been working on some of her own projects after her huge success with 'Bridesmaids.' But what might be the next project she signs up for is exciting: She could be playing Brick Tamland's love interest in 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues.'
Though 'Anchorman 2' isn't due out until sometime next year, and shooting has yet to commence, the script is being worked on and writer/director Adam McKay was out promoting something else when the sequel came up. He dropped some nuggets about the film, including that it's likely to have at least one musical number.
David Koechner has made a name for himself as film and television’s unremitting comedic SOB with appearances as Todd Packer on ‘The Office,’ nightmare boss Dennis in ‘Final Destination 5’ and Champ Kind in ‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy’ and the upcoming ‘Anchorman 2.’
Adding to his master of hilarious jerkdom repertoire, Koechner dips into the killer fish infested waters of ‘Piranha 3DD’ this weekend as Chet, a man who is cutting all available safety corners in order to open his “adult-themed” Big Wet Water Park on time and well under budget.
We had the opportunity to sit down with the funny man recently (who in reality is just about as lovely and good-natured as you can imagine) about working in the murky realms of horror, reprising his role in ‘Anchorman 2,’ and taking a surprising turn as a lovable family man – on screen.
