‘Anchorman 2′ Adds to Mix
As 'Anchorman 2' has begun shooting, casting is now filling in quite nicely, and on top of the core five of Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, and Christina Applegate, and new additions Kristen Wiig and James Marsden, now Meagan Good and Dylan Baker have officially joined the cast.
According to Deadline Hollywood, Meagan Good will be playing Ron Burgundy's boss in the film, so she'll be stepping in for Fred Willard, whose character is probably still in San Diego. Dylan Baker's role is not listed, but we're going to guess he's either a bureaucrat or a fellow anchor.
Good is not known for her comic chops. She's recently been seen on the TV show 'Deception,' but is usually (type)cast as a beautiful woman. Perhaps she'll get a chance to show off another side of her talents, or perhaps she'll be the Margaret Dumont to the News Channel's Marx brothers. Dylan Baker has done more dry comedy than out and out slapstick, but he seems game and willing to play, so we're excited by this casting. If they have begun shooting, then most of the main cast must now be locked into place. 'Anchorman 2' is scheduled to hit theaters December 20.
