At the recent Golden Globe Awards, Saturday Night Live alums Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig demonstrated they had magical comic chemistry. The two comedians are about to spend more time together. “Just found out Kristen Wiig officially on board for Anchorman 2,” tweeted director Adam McKay. “Cannonball!”
“Kristen Wiig is officially on board for Anchorman 2,” McKay added on his Facebook page. “Couldn’t be more excited.”
In December, The Wrap had reported that Wiig was in talks to play the wife of dim-witted weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) in the much-anticipated Ron Burgundy sequel.
