Kristen Wiig in talks to join Anchorman: The Legend Continues

Comedian Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) is in talks to join the cast of the much anticipated comedy sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues.

According to The Wrap, the actress is in talks to play a new love interest for Ron Burgundy, and would join Will Ferrell (Step Brothers), Steve Carell (The 40 Year Old Virgin), Paul Rudd (This is 40) and David Koechner (Get Smart) who are all back to reprise their roles as the news men at a San Francisco TV station. The much anticipated return of Ron Burgundy and his band of merry men is set for next year with Adam McKay (The Other Guys) returning to helm the film and Judd Apatow (Knocked Up) producing.

Wiig has a busy schedule of her own and will soon be seen in the forthcoming The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, directed by and starring Ben Stiller. The film centres on a timid magazine photo manager who lives life vicariously through daydreams, but then one day embarks on a true-life adventure when a negative goes missing. The actress also stars in The Skeleton Twins alongside Luke Wilson and will lend her voice to two animated sequels, Despicable Me 2 and How to Train Your Dragon 2.
