James Marsden Joins ANCHORMAN 2 Cast

James_MarsdenJames Marsden has joined the cast of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. He will be playing a news anchor who will be the rival of Will Farrell’s Ron Burgundy. With the film’s plot under wraps, there aren’t any other details as to what shape that rivalry will take.

If you’re just familiar with Marsden’s work in the X-Men franchise, he doesn’t seem like an ideal choice for a comedy. But if you saw his work on the last few seasons of 30 Rock, you would know that he has some good comedy chops.

Filming is scheduled to start next month in Atlanta with a December 20, 2013 release scheduled.
