Will Ferrell's "Anchorman" sequel's subtitle might be "The Legend Continues" but it should probably be re-dubbed "A Series Of Potentially Distracting Cameo Appearances" (although that would be really hard to fit on the marquee). Kanye West, Tina Fey, Kristin Wiig, Nicole Kidman, Sacha Baron Cohen, Amy Poehler (whom "Anchorman" die hards will remember had a sizable role in the first film, only to see her entire subplot deleted from the final product), Liam Neeson, John C. Reilly, Jim Carrey and Harrison Ford have all shot cameos for the hotly anticipated sequel (also: an animatronic shark).
The latest celebrity to be roped into this cameo feeding frenzy? None other than Canadian rapper Drake.

The "porn star name game" is a time-honored tradition in America.
It's a game pretty much anyone can play, depending on the rules — we employ the First Name: First Pet, Last Name: Street You Grew Up On method (our apologies to those with allergies, maybe you had a goldfish?). And the results are, without fail, hilarious.
We asked 100 of our favorite movie stars in Hollywood — including Emma Watson, Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, Ryan Gosling, Paul Rudd, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Katie Holmes, Jon Hamm, Emma Stone and Neil Patrick Harris — for their porn star names. They did not let us down. Click through the gallery for all 100.

Riviera"), Joanna Varikos ("Angel 14") and Kase Wickman ("Blake Sisters").
Liam Neeson may soon be adapting his particular set of skills to the Wild West.
The "Taken" star is in talks to get on the horse that is "A Million Ways to Die in the West," Seth MacFarlane's all-star follow-up to "Ted," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"A Million Ways" stars MacFarlane (who will also direct) as a cowardly sheep farmer who chickens out of a gunfight, an act of unmanliness that causes his ladylove (Amanda Seyfried) to ride into the sunset without him. He embarks on a quest to find his courage under the tutelage of a mysterious stranger (Charlize Theron) — and soon has a chance to test that courage when her revenge-seeking outlaw husband (Neeson) rides into town.

Last fall, Liam Neeson returned to cinemas with "Taken 2" and fans flocked to the theaters to find out one thing: Exactly how on Earth did Neeson's badass agent Bryan Mills manage to let his daughter get kidnapped a second time? Seriously, what happened to those special skills of his?
Well, it looks like Neeson himself was thinking the same thing, because in an interview with a Dublin radio station, he revealed that there won't be a "Taken 3" for the simple reason that it would be really dumb.
That's telling it like it is, Liam! Get More »
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• Here's another entry in the ever-growing action subgenre of "Neesploitation." Liam Neeson will do more punching and shooting and, apparently, running in "Run All Night," a thriller about a mob hit man who takes on his former boss. The "Taken" star will reunite with his "Unknown" and "Non-Stop" director, Jaume Collet-Sera. [Deadline]
• Hey, James Franco, who does your hair? The "Spring Breakers" star continues to refuse to be typecast as he's set to star in and direct "Beautiful People," a biopic about charismatic playboy and visionary Jay Sebring, the jet-setting hairstylist to the stars in the 1960s who romanced gorgeous actress Sharon Tate. Franco's quite the spitting image of Sebring, no? [Deadline] Get More »
This week: The former CIA agent played by Liam Neeson is the one who ends up being abducted instead of his daughter in "Taken 2," the hit action sequel that also features the return of Maggie Grace as Neeson's daughter and Famke Janssen as his ex-wife in a story that moves the action to Istanbul.
"Les Misérables" is shaping up to be one of the biggest film events in recent memory. Thanks to an amazing cast that includes Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe, an Oscar-winning director in Tom Hooper and the public's abiding love for the classic Broadway musical it's based on, "Les Misérables" seems poised to be a major power at both the box office and at the Oscars.
But what if we told you that back in 1998, another acclaimed director put together an even more impressive cast for an adaptation of "Les Misérables" — one that has been almost completely forgotten? Get More »
"Liam Neesons straight killed a robot boat!"
You may have heard the term for Hollywood's current favorite action subgenre: "Neesploitation." And there are no bigger fans of Neesploitation flicks than Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Get More »
Liam Neeson has officially come down with a severe case of Bieber Fever. And we're loving it.
Last month, the actor joined Justin Bieber on UK talk show "The Jonathon Ross Show,"and gave the world an unexpected but epic reading of Bieber's hit "Boyfriend."
Neeson was on the show to discuss the recent box office success of "Taken 2," but there's no way his movie could top this dramatic Bieber remix.
Is there nothing Neeson can't do? "3...2... swag." Get More »
Liam Neeson's international revenge thriller "Taken 2" punched the competition right in the face this weekend, debuting with an impressive $50 million according to Film.com. That was nearly double the amount earned by second place finisher "Hotel Transylvania" ($26.3 million) and more than double the amount earned by the first "Taken" in its 2009 debut ($24 million).
Not everyone had a great weekend, though, as Tim Burton's animated labor of love "Frankenweenie" brought in just $11.5 million, finishing in fifth place and continuing Burton's recent box office slump.
For a full run down of this week's box office, including numbers for "Looper" and the word of mouth sensation "Pitch Perfect," head to Film.com.
