It is now official!  The rumors that Kristen Wiig will join the cast of “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” have been confirmed by director Adam McKay.


According to, Wiig will sign on to play a love interest of the gang's resident odd-bird Brick Tamland.  Tamland is the Channel 4 News Team's meteorologist with a brain of mush and a heart of gold.

However, his infatuation with household items may prove to be a challenge for Wiig's character. So, will she try to end his infatuation? Or will she be Tamland’s true love—a lamp?

Until more is known about the plot of “Anchorman 2” and the character Wiig has signed on to play, we can only wonder how everything will end. For now, we are all eagerly waiting for the return of Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner.
