If you are looking for a wholly untainted experience this December when sitting down for Anchorman: The Legend Continues, then you didn’t click this headline, so let’s proceed. We’ve received word of some big-name cameos (some mostly hidden and others not so much) and now news of another batch have made their way online.
We already know that Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate, Vince Vaughn, Luke Wilson and David Koechner are all returning, while Harrison Ford, John C. Reilly, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Meagan Good, Josh Lawson, Greg Kinnear, Nicole Kidman and Dylan Baker will be added.
