Wiig will play a woman who wins the lottery and uses her gains to fund a cable talk show about herself.
This allows her to indulge her obsession with fame, and in the process jeopardise her ties with friends and family.
Shooting aims to begin this summer in California.

Ken Jeong has experienced a quite the rise to fame over the last couple of years. After catching his first big break in Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up, the doctor turned actor went on to make films like Role Models, Pineapple Express, Step Brothers and more. Then, in 2009, director Todd Phillips cast Jeong as Mr. Chow in The Hangover and the rest is, as they say, history.
This week The Hangover Part III heads into theatres and Jeong once again reprises his role as the series’ villain. Though his part was more of a supporting one in the first two outings, this time he has a much larger role as the entire story basically revolves around him. He has a ton of screen time and is funnier than ever.
Recently, Ken Jeong was in Toronto to promote the film and we had the chance to catch up with him for a bit. »

“Anchorman: The Legend Continues” is already exciting audiences, and it hasn’t even come out to theaters yet! If you’ve been in the audience to see “Star Trek Into Darkness,” you probably saw this teaser trailer and, if you’re like a lot people, started getting really happy. The first film, “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” became a cult classic and, judging from the trailer, the second one aims on becoming just as big. Below is the teaser trailer. I think that if you’re a fan of Will Ferrell and “Anchorman,” I think you’re going to really like it. “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” stars Ferrell along with Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, [ Read More ]

Some of us just yawned and obsessed over the ticking of the clock during our far-too-long commencement speeches. Whatever maniac decided that so-and-so's wife's something or other who didn’t even graduate is equipped to send students off with a 30-minute diatribe on themselves is sorely mistaken. Just dole out the degrees already and call a day a day, right, kids? Unless ...
You know, every so often schools are able to wrangle in someone actually interesting to deliver a few notes of wisdom — some more often than others (cough Harvard cough). Even better, once in a while they're our very shiniest movie stars who make lots of funnies and deliver all the feels and suddenly the speeches don't seem so bad.
Here's a tip-o'-the-grad cap to whoever lined up these 13 awesome movie star speeches. Fair warning: This may enhance the bore factor of your regular, non-famous speaker. Sorry 'bout that. »

"Saturday Night Live" buddies Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell are at it again. Wiig has signed to star in the upcoming comedy-drama "Welcome to Me," which will be produced by Ferrell, Adam McKay and Jessica Elbaum, with Robyn Wholey as executive producer. It was previously reported that Ferrell will also appear in the film, but that hasn't been confirmed. Ferrell and Wiig are co-starring in McKay's upcoming "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues." "Welcome to Me" centers on Alice (Wiig), a woman who suffers from dissociative personality disorder. When she wins the lottery, Alice invests it in an endless cable access talk show about herself, alienating »

The honor from Washington's Kennedy Center is given to someone who has "had an impact on American society in ways similar to the distinguished 19th century novelist and essayist best known as Mark Twain." Burnett, whose long career includes six Emmy Awards and a place in the TV comedy pantheon for "The Carol Burnett Show," will be the 16th recipient of the award.
"From her television program and appearances, as well as her performances on Broadway and in film, Carol Burnett has entertained generations of fans with her vibrant wit and hilarious characters," Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein says in a statement. "We are delighted to pay tribute to this unique and beloved entertainer."
The sequel, which opens in cinemas on December 20, will follow San Diego's Channel 4 news team as they must adjust to 24-hour rolling news coverage.
The New York pictures reveal a cameo role for rapper Drake, the four stars recreating The Beatles' Abbey Road album cover and the suggestion of a battle scene to rival the first film's epic showdown.

Baumbach's Kicking and Screaming is the story of a group of college graduates who struggle to move on with their lives after school, while Ferrell's movie satirises children's soccer leagues.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Baumbach admitted that he wishes the producers of Ferrell's film had come up with a different title.
"It was very annoying. The same year, Crash came out too - or right around there - I imagined David Cronenberg was annoyed as well," the director said.
"I mean, actually, that was something that I was very conscious about because an obvious title for our [new] movie was Frances. And there's a very good movie with Jessica Lange called Frances about Frances Farmer."
He continued: "It kind of pushed Greta [Gerwig] and me to »
That makes four cast anchors who have left in the last two years, with Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg as the two who left last season. Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen are also rumored to be leaving, a rumor which was made stronger by Jay Pharoah's since-deleted tweet about it.
Is the "SNL" cast in crisis? Maybe.
The Chicago Tribune makes the case that the mass exodus may turn out to be like a forest fire -- "seemingly devastating" damage that actually has a "restorative effect" on the show, citing the departures in 1986 that opened the door for Dana Carvey, Phil Hartman and Kevin Nealon, or in 1995 that ushered in the Will Ferrell-Sheri Oteri-Darrell Hammond era. »
At this point, who isn't in the Anchorman sequel? Drake made his presence known in Anchorman: The Legend Continues today, the rapper getting snapped on set sporting an Afro and retro sideburns. He joins Kanye West, Jim Carrey, Harrison Ford, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Sacha Baron Cohen, Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst—among others—in the cameo-laden film. And then there are the usual suspects, of course. Ron Burgundy and Veronica Corningstone are together again in the form of Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate, spotted in fur-trimmed coats outside Radio City Music Hall, Applegate's winged hair a-flyin'. Also, apparently shooting a scene that takes place »
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy was the movie that introduced me to Will Ferrell, and I'm guessing that's the case for plenty of other people. Ferrell's career hasn't been doing the best as of late, seemingly reaching that phase where comedic actors will take any script that's thrown their way. Anchorman: The Legend Continues may be able to do again what the first film did, and bring him back. Here's another teaser featuring the Channel 4 News Team. »

The Channel 4 news team is back and classier than ever in the newest teaser trailer for “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.” Likening the gang to Jesus and Jay-z, a voiceover assures us that just as those great men returned, so will Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), and Champ Kind (David Koechner). “And when they do,” the narrator promises, “one thing is for sure: their hair will be perfect.” And by the beard of Zeus, their follicles are indeed perfect. Short and sweet, the clip gives us a quick glimpse of our heroes, who look and sound the same -- and as self-delusional -- as they did in 2004, the last time they graced the big screen. There's no sign of anchorwoman Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) or any of the other stars appearing in the flick (including Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig, Nicole Kidman, »

A new trailer for "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" has premiered online and it has some high praise for the upcoming comedy.
"Jesus. McCarth7. Jay-z. The great ones always return, and when they do, one thing's for sure: Their hair will be perfect," the narrator quips as Ron Burgundy, Brick Tamland, Brian Fantana and Champ Kind walk slowly towards the camera.
This teaser is styled in the same way as the first "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" trailers that were released almost a year ago. Though it doesn't offer up any new footage, the trailer does tease that the Channel 4 Action News team hasn't changed since we last saw them in 2004's "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy."
Directed by Adam McKay, "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" stars Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig, Greg Kinnear, James Marsden and Nicole Kidman. It's due in theaters on Dec. »
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 hip hop-er and former "Degrassi: The Next Generation" cast member was spotted on the New York midtown location shoot, wearing a ridiculously fake-looking afro, long seventies-era sideburns, a Members Only jacket and a T-shirt embossed by »

Drake popped up on the set of Anchorman: The Legend Continues sporting an Afro for an afternoon in front of the cameras in NYC on Saturday. He joined the original cast - including Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and David Koechner - who were also on hand for the day of filming. Drake isn't the only star making a cameo in the film since Tina Fey and Amy Poehler shot scenes with Sacha Baron Cohen in Atlanta earlier this month, and Liam Neeson, John C. Reilly, Kirsten Dunst, and Harrison Ford have also gotten in front of the cameras for the sequel. There's even more star power to come with Kristen Wiig and Nicole Kidman also signed on to make appearances. View Slideshow › »

The Kvwn Channel 4 News Team are heading back to the big screen this year as director Adam McKay reunites with Will Ferrell (Ron Burgundy), Paul Rudd (Brian Fantana), David Koechner (Champ Kind) and Steve Carell (Brick Tamland) for Anchorman: The Legend Continues, and Paramount Pictures has released a new teaser trailer for the long-awaited comedy sequel, which you can view below.
The follow-up to 2004's Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy sees Christina Applegate (Veronica Corningstone), Fred Willard (Ed Harken), Chris Parnell (Garth Holladay), Luke Wilson (Frank Vitchard), Vince Vaughn (Wes Mantooth) and Ben Stiller (Arturo Mendez) returning to the cast alongside new additions Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig, Dylan Baker, Greg Kinnear and Meagan Good. A host of celebrity cameos are also expected, with the likes of Jim Carrey, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kirsten Dunst, Tina Fey, Nicole Kidman, Liam Neeson, Amy Poehler, John C. Reilly, Will Smith and Kanye West all said to feature. »

Ron Burgundy, the leading light of San Diego news, is back in a new teaser for "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," and his return puts him in some rarified company. "Jesus. MacArthur. Jay-z. The great ones always return," a voice of God like narration informs viewers. "And when they do, one thing is for sure, their hair will be perfect."

"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.
And even though scripting, casting and filming has since taken place, teaser number two looks pretty much identical to the the first one we saw last year.
In it, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Champ Kind (David Koechner) and Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) step forth together with a few choice words of intrigue to encourage viewers to tune in this December when they return to the big screen after almost a decade.
Rather than the sub-machine guns and boobies promised last time, »
