Kristen Wiig is one of the funniest ladies in the business right now, and after her collaboration with Will Ferrell for a Golden Globes presentation, it’s not difficult to see why he’d want her on board for the sequel to his hit, “Anchorman”. Wiig has been confirmed in a role which early reports say is the love interest of Brick Tamland, played by Steve Carell. I guess he doesn’t love Lamp after all.
The sequel will also bring back original funnymen Paul Rudd and David Koechner and Ron Burgundy’s ladylove, Christina Applegate. Will Ferrell announced the plans for the sequel last March on “Conan”, dressed in full Ron Burgundy costume, of course.
