"Anchorman: The Legend Continues" will host a slew of bizarro celebrity cameos — everyone from Kristen Wiig to Kanye West to Nicole Kidman, so pretty much just everyone in show business — but as this latest teaser from the long-awaited sequel reminds, the ultimate centerpiece of this little shindig will be the one and only Channel 4 foursome.
Yep, San Diego's wackiest news quartet is back, ya'll, boots, ties and all.
Starring in a remake of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" may have been a bad choice, but appearing in "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" ... never!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nicole Kidman just shot an uncredited cameo for the much anticipated "Anchorman" sequel, with the details of her role being kept under wraps. This certainly isn't the first time the typically serious actress has given a go at some funny business, as she also had an uncredited part in Adam Sandler's 2011 comedy, "Just Go With It."
Kidman makes for just one of many other surprise players in the "Anchorman" sequel, including Kristen Wiig, Harrison Ford and Greg Kinnear. THR also reports that Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are likely to be making comebacks as Ron Burgundy's rival anchors from the evening news. Get More »
"Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is currently filming in Atlanta, where "Conan" is currently having a week's worth of shows. Much to our delight, this allowed the always-charming Paul Rudd to appear on the show last night in full Brian Fantana garb (which includes a giant, healthy, super-creepy mustache), where he talked about the film's December release and even (gasp!) brought along a clip from the much-anticipated sequel.
Or so he told Conan, and all of us, and we believed him. We believed you, Rudd.
Don't get us wrong: The clip is funny, maybe as funny as any future 15-second clip from "Anchorman: The Legend Continues." And who knows — the movie might actually have a scene where a kid in a wheelchair falls off a cliff into a lake and an alien watches with delight. We can neither confirm nor deny that that actually takes place in the movie.
I'm just not sure if Rudd fully comprehends the emotional wringer he put us through for laughs. Damn you, Paul.
One thing is for damn sure: Harrison Ford already works around the clock!
As if the screen legend didn't have his work cut out for him reprising Han Solo in "Star Wars Episode VII," The Hollywood Reporter has him going toe-to-toe with another legendary man's man… Ron Burgundy, in "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues."
Ford, who previously played a news anchor in the comedy dud "Morning Glory," will be playing a Tom Brokaw-like old school newscaster alongside Will Ferrell in what is likely to be a testosterone-fueled grudge match to remember. Bring your grenades and tridents. Get More »
Things have been pretty hush hush lately in the "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" department, but today not one but two major news bits about the long-awaited sequel have come down.
While the first installment saw anchor Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), weatherman Brick (Steve Carell), Champ (David Koechner), Brian (Paul Rudd) and Veronica (Christina Applegate) holdin' it down in sunny San Diego, Channel Four's pack of weirdos just wouldn't be news folk worth a darn if New York City wasn't their Mecca. So, writer Adam McKay is sending them to the east coast this go-round for some Big Apple-style funzies. Get More »
By the beard of Zeus! Ron Burgundy's got himself a nemesis.
James Marsden will give the legendary anchor a run for his money as he's signed on to bring antagonism to "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," according to Deadline.
The "X-Men" star will be playing a rival anchor who no doubt will inspire Burgundy and his Action News Team posse to come up with all sorts of colorful ways with which to describe and insult him. Marsden joins a cast that includes Kristen Wiig and returning players Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Steve Carell and Christina Applegate. Get More »
David Koechner has become a ubiquitous presence in comedy films over the last ten years, from "Anchorman" and "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" to "Waiting ..." and "Get Smart." He recently played a detective in the offbeat ensemble comedy "Small Apartments," with Matt Lucas and Billy Crystal.
Koechner recently spoke with us about tighty-whities, Malcolm Gladwell and becoming Champ Kind again. Get More »
UPDATE: Kristen Wiig is back in Burgundy. The "Bridesmaids" star is now confirmed in "Anchorman 2," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Well, Christina Applegate will certainly be thankful for the extra estrogen.
The (mostly) boys club that is KVWN-TV Channel 4 Evening News may be getting even more of a lady's touch as Kristen Wiig is rumored to be signing on to "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," according to The Wrap. Get More »
"Texas Chainsaw 3D" is 2013's inaugural sequel in a year chock full of them (29 in all). With this much franchise volume in one year, it's good to keep some perspective in terms of which series we're primed for ... and which ones shouldn't have had a first movie to begin with.
From the bad to the rad, here's our rundown of all the follow-ups fans have been clamoring for — or haven't, as the case may be. Prioritize your sequel viewing, people. Get More »
Man, 2012 was a pretty darn good year for films, right? "The Avengers," "Lincoln," "The Hunger Games," "Silver Linings Playbook," seriously, we could go on and on, as this past year has been one of the best in recent memory.
And that has us even more amped up to see what Hollywood does for an encore. Sure, 2013 has some pretty big shoes to fill, but there are always news movies to see, new adventures to experience, new stars to meet and new pop culture obsessions waiting to be born.
So with that in mind, we've put together our list of the top 50 Movies We’re All About in 2013. Because last year is just so last year. Get More »
