Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Blade Runner… Anchorman?
Yes, aging action star Harrison Ford has joined the cast of Anchorman 2!
Production on the much-anticipated comedy sequel is already underway, but since filming began last week, four new names have been added to the cast, including John C. Reilly and Meagan Good.
For will play a legendary newscaster, a la Tom Brokaw (who Ford could easily play in a biopic), though plot details are scarce at the moment. What we do know is that the main arc of the film is that Ron Burgundy will be vying for a job in New York City on a 24-hour cable news network.
All your favorites from the first film are returning, including Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, Christina Applegate, and David Koechner. Also joining on is comedic juggernaut Kristen Wiig, playing a love interest to Carell’s Brick Tamland.
Anchorman 2 is set to hit theaters December 20. While you wait, just relax with a nice cool beverage. But not milk. Milk would be a bad choice.
