Anchorman: The Legend Continues is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated comedies of the year. The original film from 2004 became something of a cult favourite, gaining fans with time and video rentals. So when it was finally announced Ron Burgundy and his moustache would be coming back, the excitement was palpable. Part of this anticipation stemmed from the fact that the original cast—including Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd—would be reprising their news anchor roles. On top of this, it was also announced that Harrison Ford and Kristen Wiig would be joining the San Diego station news team. Then, the cameo news started, and the most recent celeb spotted on set is Kanye West.
The art of the cameo relies on the surprise of seeing a famous face in an unconventional place. With all the spottings on set we’re beginning to wonder if the Anchorman 2 production team is ruining part of the fun. In addition to the rapper-Kim Kardashian impregnator being spotted on set sporting an afro, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have also been seen, and sources reported seeing Liam Neeson hanging out too. Will Smith, Nicole Kidman, Jane Lynch, John C. Reilly, and Jim Carrey’s names have also been attached to the project, though nothing is confirmed. Maybe the producers will start taking audience suggestions for whom they’d like to see in the film? We’d like to say Aubrey Plaza would be great and Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan kinda need a break right about now. Also, is CGI Tupac available?
