This just in! Kanye West is filming a fight scene with Ron Burgundy! The rap superstar jetted to Atlanta earlier this week to film a cameo in the Anchorman sequel starring Will Ferrell. Turning up on set at Woodruff Park downtown, West wore a wig and used a hockey stick for a weapon while appearing in an epic battle sequence reminiscent of the rumble between warring network anchormen from the original. West is the latest celebrity to make a cameo appearance in the highly anticipated sequel, joining a who's who of stars including Harrison Ford, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Sacha Baron Cohen, Liam Neeson, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, James Marsden, John C.

Kanye West is to have a cameo role in 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues'. The 35-year-old rapper was spotted filming scenes for the comedy sequel - which stars Will Ferrell as bungling news reader Ron Burgundy - on the set in Atlanta, Georgia, on Tuesday (07.05.13). Kanye - who is expecting his first child with fiancée Kim Kardashian - was dressed in an afro wig and was seen fighting with several famous faces, including Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Sacha Baron Cohen. 'Anchorman 2' will feature a host of big name stars in roles, such as Liam Neeson, Will Smith, John C. Reilly, Nicole Kidman, Jim Carrey and Jane Lynch. Meryl Streep is also hoping to make an appearance in the »
Owen Wilson is reportedly in negotiations for a role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s (The Master) upcoming crime thriller Inherent Vice, based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon. Although Wilson’s representative declined to comment, it is believed he will play a lead role opposite the exceptional Joaquin Phoenix. Set in 1970 Los Angeles, Inherent Vice tells the Lebowski-esque story of pot-smoking private investigator Larry “Doc” Sportello (Phoenix) as he investigates the alleged kidnapping of a girl he used to date. The cast may also include Benicio del Toro, playing a lawyer who helps the protagonist. Hit the jump for more details. According to The Wrap, Charlize Theron is rumored for the female lead. Warner Bros. will finance and distribute the film, as opposed to Megan Ellison, who funded Anderson’s previous work The Master with her company Annapurna Pictures. Anderson will produce the film via his production company Ghoulardi Film Co. »

Anchorman: The Legend Continues is shaping up to be a star-studded affair! On set in Atlanta yesterday, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were armed with crowbars as they shot a fight scene with Sacha Baron Cohen while Liam Neeson and John C. Reilly posed with extras while holding swords and muskets. Meanwhile, Kirsten Dunst and Jim Carrey arrived on set to get ready for their cameos alongside the original Anchorman stars Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, and Steve Carell. This week's cast of characters aren't the only stars who will be appearing in the movie. Harrison Ford hit the set in March, when it was also confirmed that Nicole Kidman and Kristen Wiig will all be featured in guest roles for the comedy, which is slated to hit theaters later this year on Dec. 20.

It may be still be a way away, but over the last few months, the long-gestating and hugely anticipated sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues has been filming in and around Atlanta.
Original stars Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Christina Applegate have all been spotted on set, as well as new additions Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Greg Kinnear and Harrison Ford. But as with most big Hollywood films these days, secrecy is the name of the game, and not much is known about the story for the film.
One thing that has had people salivating even more is the spade of cameos that are set to be included in the film. In addition to Harrison Ford, it was reported that Nicole Kidman, Ferrell’s Bewitched co-star, was making a cameo, alongside possible returning cameo-ists Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Luke Wilson, as well as rumoured appearances from »

The impressive cameo roster for Anchorman: The Legend Continues has added comedy’s current hot tickets, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to the mix. They’ll join a ton of Hollywood’s finest in making a brief appearance in the sequel. Director Adam McKay has revealed that the two actresses are on board but no news yet on the roles they’ll play. Their performances were captured during a shoot taking place in a park. Bonkers park rangers, maybe?
New photos show Fey and Poehler (or people who look suspiciously similar to them from the back) on set, and Will Ferrell battling Jaws! Yes, the big guy himself enters into a fight with a toothy killer of the deep. Could this be to rival the bear enclosure hilarity of the first outing? See for yourself in the photos below.
Further rumours have dropped as well that Sacha Baron Cohen may »

"Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is currently filming in Georgia, where Will Ferrell was spotted battling a mechanical Great White shark. Even though the actor had a stuntman ready to do the scene, Ferrell decided to handle this one himself. Check out the photos below. In addition to Ferrell, the new movie stars Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Greg Kinnear, John C. Reilly, Meagan Good and Dylan Baker. "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is once again directed by Adam McKay and is set to hit theaters on December 20th. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
Will Ferrell and Jack Black – two names that either inspire cringing and cries of ‘overrated!’ or hysterical laughter. Whatever you think of them, they are certainly hot commodities and they have now joined what is perhaps the most epic game of ‘Tag’ ever, as both sign up for New Line’s comedy Tag Brothers.
Tag Brothers is based on a real-life Tag game that went on for 23 years between a group of friends in Spokane every February. It even escalated to the point of them breaking into each other’s homes and spying on each other, thus blurring the line between friendly game and sociopathy.
It sounds tailor-made for Ferrell and Black’s brand of extreme but self-aware comedy. I can already see the two of them battling for Tag supremacy in increasingly bizarre and potentially hazardous ways.
While no details are yet forthcoming as to the roles Black and Ferrell will play, »

Greetings from the apocalypse! You might think that this particular Mad Max would enjoy watching Tom Cruise fight evil robots in a future nuclear-blasted wasteland, but Nope! "Oblivion" is a dud, though that doesn't mean we can't make it through the next few days as long as we stick together and don't cross the Dmz. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em, troops, we're goin' in …
Friday, April 19
Pow! In Theaters
Xenu's own Tom Cruise returns to comfortable sci-fi territory this week with "Oblivion," which I will henceforth refer to as "The Matrix Redressed." Cruise is the only living boy in post-apocalyptic New York, where he and a stuffy British chick (Andrea Riseborough, natch) maintain giant water vacuums when they're not having PG-13 swimming pool sex … that is, until the mysterious Olga Kurylenko arrives from outer space. »

Production of "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is well underway, and it sounds like Ron Burgundy fans are in for a few fun surprises. "Stoker" star Nicole Kidman shot scenes in Atlanta for an uncredited cameo in the highly anticipated sequel, according to a report by THR.
Previously announced newcomers to the "Anchorman" franchise include Harrison Ford, who will reportedly play a Tom Brokaw type veteran newscaster and Kristen Wiig, who will play the wife of Steve Carrell's character, weatherman Brick Tamland.
Joining Carrell in reprising their roles from the 2004 hit, "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" are Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd and David Koechner. The plot is said to revolve around the news team adjusting to a high-tech world that craves a 24-hour news cycle, »
One of the most fun parts of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy was seeing all of the surprising cameos. It makes sense that we would see even more of them in Adam McKay's Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
THR is reporting that Vince Vaughn, Luke Wilson, and Nicole Kidman are among those who will have small parts in the film. I imagine Vaughn and Wilson will be reprising their roles as rival anchors from the first film.
As far as the rest of the cast goes, here's a roundup... Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Steve Carell, and Christina Applegate are all back. Joining them are Kristen Wiig, Harrison Ford, Dylan Baker, and John C. Reilly with James Marsden as a rival newscaster.
The story follows the on-set adventures of San Diego’s top newsman, and it was previously revealed that it will partly be a musical. »

Adam McKay is going all out with Anchorman: The Legend Continues, or so it seems. As promised, he’s filling the cast with recognizable faces and it looks like he’s not intent on keeping any of the actors a secret. Every week we hear of a new name being added to the upcoming sequel and this week, we’re receiving news from The Hollywood Reporter that Nicole Kidman will be showing up in a small cameo.
So far, Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate and David Koechner are all returning in their roles from the last film, while Harrison Ford, John C. Reilly, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Meagan Good, Josh Lawson, Greg Kinnear and Dylan Baker will show up in new roles.

Harrison Ford is not a funny actor. He doesn’t do funny movies. But he certainly made us laugh in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, talking about two upcoming roles — as the man behind Jackie Robinson in 42, and a small part in Anchorman 2. The latter film, as we learn, stars “Applesauce Girl” and “Whatshisname.”
Poor Christina Applegate. At least Ford’s character won’t be like his jowly turn as a newscaster in 2010′s Morning Glory. “I hope it’s a little different. One hates to repeat themselves. They asked me to do it before they knew I had done Morning Glory, »

Obviously the most exciting thing about "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is the fact that Harrison Ford has come on board to play a "legendary newsman." But, according to him, he doesn't have a very significant role in the movie.
"It'd be easy enough to cut out. I don't think it's critical," he told Entertainment Tonight, adding that his experience on set was "bizarre." "They weren't all in the scene that I did," he said. "It was just what's his name [Will Ferrell] and the applesauce girl [Christina Applegate]." Yes, really, there's video to prove this went down.
In addition to Ford's unintentional -- or maybe intentional -- hilarity, Paul Rudd went on "Conan" to show a new clip from "Anchorman: The Legend Continues." Spoiler alert: it's not really a clip from "Anchorman: The Legend Continues."

Rocking the familiar mustache and 1970’s shag of his Anchorman character Brian Fantana, Paul Rudd took a break from filming the sequel yesterday in Atlanta and popped by Conan O’Brien’s visiting TBS talk show.
Asked about the hotly anticipated Anchorman: The Legend Continues, Rudd surprised O’Brien with a special treat: an exclusive clip from the film. If that seems too good to be true — given that the top-secret sequel is, as O’Brien said, on “lock down” — it’s because it is. Only one of the following three words turned out to be true: “exclusive Anchorman clip. »

As the nation waits with bated breath for the Supreme Court to weigh in on gay marriage, some Hollywood heavyweights are prepping a Prop 8 movie.
The film would be based on Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black's "8," a play that used transcripts from the 2010 trial that struck down the law as the source material for an all-star retelling of the case. Proposition 8 is a 2008 California ballot proposition that resulted in an amendment to the state's constitution that declared the state only "recognizes" marriage between a man and a woman. A litany of tinseltown's biggest names performed in the play's inaugural showing, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Jane Lynch, Martin Sheen, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christine Lahti, George Takei, John C. Reilly, Chris Colfer, Matthew Morrison and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Director Rob Reiner has said that he aims to turn the play into a movie. "We are working on it, »

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. When we think of on-screen pairs that can't stop working together, we generally think of people who star in films together, whose reunion is the kind of thing that the studio can avidly promote. But now that we clearly have to add Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy to the list, we're really, really unsure how they should fit in. After working together for the first time in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and then reuniting soon after with The Dark Knight Rises, Oldman and Hardy are making it a hat trick with Child 44, which THR reports has added Oldman to the cast. Hardy has been set to star since late January, playing a Soviet military police officer charged with investigating a series of child murders, and accidentally winding up in the crosshairs of his »
Will Ferrell and Adam McKay have already lined up a star studded cast for the in-production Anchorman: The Legend Continues. In addition to getting Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate and David Koechner to return, the sequel has already brought on Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig, John C. Reilly, James Marsden, Meagan Good and Dylan Baker in various parts both known and unknown. But the names aren't done coming yet. Deadline has learned that House of Lies' Josh Lawson - who co-starred with Ferrell in last year's The Campaign - and Greg Kinnear have both lined up parts in Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Like some of their other co-stars, their roles remain a mystery, as does the overall plot. Thus far it has only been confirmed that the movie will be a musical and that the story will find the Channel 4 news team going from their home in San »
