As shooting progresses on Adam McKay‘s follow-up to Anchorman, the director previously revealed the cast would be stocked full of recognizable faces, and he isn’t letting us down. As expected, Will Ferrell, Steve Carell Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate and David Koechner are all returning, while Harrison Ford, John C. Reilly, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Meagan Good and Dylan Baker flesh out additional roles, and today we’ve got two more additions.
According to Deadline, Greg Kinnear will be joining the ensemble, along with Showtime’s House Of Lies star Josh Lawson. We’ve got no word yet on their characters, but word has it the crew will be heading to New York City for this follow-up. In the meantime, Carell got a chance to brush up on his Brick Tamland skills during the press tour for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. Stopping by ESPN SportsCenter, he channeled the character while reading off the top ten plays. Check it out below, along with a preview of what Koechner’s character will be up to in the sequel.
