Kristen Wiig is joining the cast of Will Ferrell's "Anchorman" sequel.
Knights of Columbus, that's kind of a big deal!
"Just found out Kristen Wiig officially on board for Anchorman 2. Cannonball!" director Adam McKay confirmed Monday on Twitter.
"Anchorman" costar Christina Applegate (a.k.a. Ron Burgundy's lady love) corroborated the story with her own Tweet. "woohoo! That's so great," Applegate responded, later quipping, "So excited Kristen Wiig has joined our cast for anchorman2. Going 2 b best movie ever made. Besides the best movies ever made."
"Anchorman: The Legend Continues" will see the return of its original stars Ferrell, Applegate, Paul Rudd Steve Carell and David Koechner and continue the on-and-off-set shenanigans of the Channel 4 Evening News team.
"Bridesmaids" star Wiig, an "SNL" alum like Ferrell, is rumored to be playing the love interest of Carell's mentally deficient meteorologist, according to MTV News. Maybe, for one night, they won't be co-workers, they'll be "co-people." We also wouldn't mind a Golden Globes-style matchup between Wiig and Ferrell, either.
