'Anchorman: The Legend Continues' may be assembling a murderer's row of talent for its comedic ensemble, but there is one name noticeably missing: Tina Fey, of course! Although the 'Saturday Night Live' and '30 Rock' star/genius doesn't appear to be in the cast for the upcoming Will Ferrell comedy epic, it's far too early to place any bets, especially since there's going to be cameos galore.
However, a recent interview has revealed that Fey almost starred in the first 'Anchorman' film instead of Christina Applegate.

No one was exactly surprised to hear that 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' had been pulled from the ABC schedule, effectively cancelling the series, but the timing of the show's removal may yet have produced a bit of good luck. Series lead Krysten Ritter has reportedly landed the lead role in forthcoming NBC pilot 'Assistance,' to be executive produced by FunnyOrDie founders Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, but will Ritter have better luck this time around?

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.

Sadly, outside of the occasional Old Milwaukee commercial, occasional 'SNL' appearance, or maybe even the latest episode of 'Bitch Hunter,' we're unlikely to see Will Ferrell take any regular presence on the small screen again.  That's okay though, considering the imminent arrival of 'Anchorman 2' with director Adam McKay, and an upcoming NBC series with both behind the camera!  And hey, why not throw in a little Anne Heche for good measure?  Who's ready for 'Bad Judge?'
