If the cast and crew of Anchorman: The Legend Continues are trying to keep the film’s incredible and ever-increasing number of cameos by famous actors and celebrities under wraps, they’re doing a horrible job. As the sequel to the classic Will Ferrell comedy is filming in Atlanta, photos and reports of cameo after cameo are popping up on the Internet and it’s only a matter of time before… yep, now I’m in Anchorman 2 also.
But the latest cameo being reported by Access Atlanta is a little more surprising than Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Sacha Baron Cohen. Namely because this one isn’t a comedy actor. Hell, he’s not even an actor at all. Can you guess who it is? Wrong, it’s not Chet Haze, despite my demands. But that’s pretty close…
Kanye West has joined the “Anchorman 2″ movie filming in downtown Atlanta.
Honestly, I never expected that. But that just goes back to that whole “big shoes to fill” thing that I wrote about yesterday, and now West is another A-list name that joins one hell of a (rumored) roster.
We saw Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on-set yesterday, while numerous tipsters reported seeing Liam Neeson. Before that came Will Smith and Nicole Kidman. John C. Reilly and Jim Carrey have signed on, too. We’ve also heard talk that Jane Lynch, who has spent time in Atlanta filming “ACOD” and “The Three Stooges,” in on the way. Honestly at this point we may start reporting who’s not in the movie.
Again, all rumors, but I’m curious to see what Kanye’s role will be in the film, seeing as he has no real acting experience and seems about as funny as a MAD TV sketch.
I know, Kanye. I know.
