Kristen Wiig Confirmed for 'Anchorman 2'

Kristen Wiig

Kristen Wiig was reported to be in talks for the Anchorman sequel late last year, and it looks like she has finally reached a deal to be in the movie. Her fellow co-star Christina Applegate tweeted her involvement in Anchorman: The Legend Continues earlier today.

"So excited Kristen Wiig has joined our cast for anchorman2. Going 2 b best movie ever made. Besides the best movies ever made," Applegate wrote.

According to Deadline, Wiig's casting has been confirmed by Paramount insiders.

Wiig is said to be playing Brick Tamland's (Steve Carell) love interest in earlier reports, but she may actually be playing his wife.

Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, and Applegate are all returning to reprise their roles, and we may find the action news team challenged by the 24 hours cable news networks.

Directed Adam McKay, Anchorman: The Legend Continues is slated for release later this year on December 20th.
