Funny lady Kristen Wiig has officially signed on to star in the sequel, director Adam McKay announced via his Facebook page: "Kristen Wiig is officially on board for Anchorman 2. Couldn't be more excited."
The SNL veteran is joined by the Channel Four News Team -- the titular Ron Burgundy, played by Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carrell, Dave Koechner and Christina Applegate. No word has been released about her role in the sequel, but, who cares: Wiig is assuming her rightful place among these comedic titans.
Like the rest of the plot, things are somewhat hush-hush, McKay told Salon back in 2012, "Keep in mind we're still writing the story, but I'll say one phrase for you: custody battle... I'll give you that. I'll give you one other one: bowling for dollars."
Things just keep getting better. "Anchorman 2" hits theaters December 20, 2013.
