When you’ve turned into one of America’s comedy sweethearts, you’re bound to land great roles in some of the bigger comedies to burst into theaters. Obviously we’re referring to Kristen Wiig, the Saturday Night Live alum whose surprise hit Bridesmaids turned her into the comedy superstar that she is. So to find out that she’s in talks to land a role as a love interest in Anchorman: The Legend Continues is beyond perfect.
Now hold your horses. Before you go assuming that she’ll be taking over Veronica Corningstone’s place as Ron Burgundy’s special lady friend, that’s not the case. As a matter of fact, she’s in talks to play none other than Brick “I love lamp” Tamland’s love interest. Well remember at the end of Anchorman where they said that Brick eventually gets married and has eleven kids? It looks like we may be getting a glimpse at the woman who’s strange enough to want to marry the dim witted weather forecaster.
The script for the sequel is still being written out, so Wiig will definitely not be the only new face to pop into the ever-changing world of San Diego’s Channel 4 news, if they keep the sequel over there. The main cast of players like Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, will be back reprising their roles in the Adam McKay directed sequel. We can’t wait to find out who else will be part of this picture.
