X-men regular James Marsden will take on the might of Ron Burgundy after being cast as the lead news rival to Will Ferrell’s stuck-in-the-seventies Channel 4 news anchor, in Adam McKay’s comic sequel.
Ferrell will be back to reprise his chauvinist signature role of flute-playing icon Burgundy. Paul Rudd’s Sex Panther-wearing Brian Fantana; Christina Applegate’s Veronica ‘Tits Magee’ Corningstone; Steve Carell’s lamp-loving Brick Tamland and David Koechner’s cocky cowboy, Champ Kind, all return. Marsden will join newcomer to the franchise, Bridesmaids’ Kristen Wiig, in the follow-up entitled Anchorman: The Legend Continues.
Expect a host of hilarious cameos from the likes of Ben Stiller, Luke Wilson, Tim Robbins and Vince Vaughn, as the brilliantly bonkers and envious news anchors for the film due in cinemas 20th December.
