'Anchorman 2'? That is not a typo on the Teleprompter.

Anchorman_lGreat Odin’s raven! An Anchorman sequel might finally be moving forward. Last year, Will Ferrell told EW.com that he and Anchorman director Adam McKay were working on a followup that would bring classy 1970s newsman Ron Burgandy into the 1980s. By the hammer of Thor! On Monday, Ferrell, in Australia promoting Land of the Lost, told Aussie radio hosts Jono & Dano (fastforward to the 8:20 mark) that he expected to meet with Paul Rudd and Steve Carell “next week” to discuss ideas…and salaries: “[Because] believe me, I’m not taking a pay-cut. No way!” Sweet Eli Whitney’s nose! While we make some phone calls to confirm these promising rumors, enjoy a little afternoon delight (and tell us what ’80s tune you’d like the news team to croon a cappella):
