It's well documented that Brick Tamland loves lamps, but does he also have room in his heart for someone who looks like Kristen Wiig? According to TheWrap, Wiig could play Steve Carell's onscreen love interest in "Anchorman 2," making the highly anticipated sequel even better. Of course, since the script is not yet finished and no actors outside of Carell, Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner have been hired, take this report in stride.

Since breaking out in 2011 with "Bridesmaids," Wiig has kept quite busy. She left "Saturday Night Live" in May, but has lined up a multitude of movies, both indie and mainstream. In 2013, she'll star in four films: "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" with Ben Stiller, "The Skeleton Twins" with Bill Hader and the indies "Imogene" and "Hateship, Friendship." Noticeably absent from that roster is "Bridesmaids 2," a film Wiig has long seemed uninterested in actually making. »
