Get ready San Diego, Kristen Wiig is heading your way. Although it hasn’t been formally announced yet, the comic actress has signed on to appear in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
Back in December we knew that she was in consideration for a role in the film, and now it looks definite that she will be playing the wife of weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carell).
We still have anywhere between a few weeks and a few months before filming starts so I expect we’ll see many more announcements like this as the time draws nearer. Remember that director Adam McKay has vowed to make the film “a murderer’s row of the best day players ever … every single one-line or three-line role [will] just be someone we just love.”
Anchorman 2 is due in theaters December 20th.
