The "Anchorman 2" crew are welcoming a new co-star aboard the anticipated sequel: Kristen Wiig.
"Kristen Wiig is officially on board for Anchorman 2. Couldn't be more excited," said director/co-screenwriter Adam McKay on his Facebook page.
Added Christina Applegate on Twitter, "So excited Kristen Wiig has joined our cast for anchorman2. Going 2 b best movie ever made. Besides the best movies ever made."
Wiig joins Will Ferrell, who's returning as the unintentionally hilarious newsman Ron Burgundy for the follow-up to 2004's hit comedy, as well as Applegate, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Steve Carell. Ferrell personally revealed the news on "Conan" last spring, wearing Ron Burgundy's signature leisure suit and mustache.
"Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is slated to open December 20. McKay suggested that we're in for "whole song sequences" in the sequel, while Carell is keeping his fingers crossed that no one's changed over the past nine years.
"I think it's such a great ensemble piece that I would hope that our roles are the same as they were the first time around," he said. "The storyline is going to be different, but I hope the people in it are exactly the same."
i love that hat..its so you
I love Kristen Wiig! She's beautiful and crazy-talented. Can't wait to see this!
I really liked her in "Paul". So I actually sat down and watched "Bridesmaids" with my wife, and I really liked her in that. I'm a fan.
mmmm, i want to put some love spackle on her face
rest my case
Romantic Rival to Christine Applegate? Looks like Ron is going to be in another pickle – having to decide between these two lovely ladies, or he could take the Brick way out and just love lamp and carpet HA! HA!
What are all the teabillies going to do now that their fearless leader Sarah Palin has been broomed from Fake News ?
Yeah, I saw that, too. Even the folks at Faux News got sick of her bs. She seems like the most uneducated, most opinionated woman in America. I wonder how she'd doing with her great fall from grace. Now, can she go back to Alaska, and never be heard from again? I highly doubt it.
i love the color too ron
I'm Ron Burgundy?
I solemnly swear to personally resuscitate Will Ferrell's career from the toilet.
I can fornicate??
up up and away in my beautiful balloon–fun
I'd like to plop a huge steaming turd onto her forehead.
Dont worry, your daddy will be in shortly to toss your salad.
Don't jew us on the laughs Kristen.
Adolf, there are other laxative options you should consider. You seem a bit pent up. Peace.
Kristen is the funniest female making movies right nowt-Lucille Ball would be proud.
That is great for Christen Wiig. I hope the movie will be funny. Lets see if it's as funny as the 1st 1.
Spending a quiet night sculpting farm animals from my girlfriend's bowel movements...
That reminds me – say hi to Ted for me
Movie will suck.

I wish people would post funny things. We are between classes right now. Fixing to go to American history and learn about stuff.
Apparently grammar is not one you've already learned.
