Kristen Wiig Joins Anchorman 2, Raises Our Hopes For More Brick Tamland

Kristen Wiig is joining Will Ferrell and company in Anchorman 2

Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell at the Golden Globes … giving a preview of Anchorman 2?

We are metaphorically riding unicorns past rainbows over this morning’s wonderful news that Kristen Wiig has officially joined the cast of Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Back in December, we heard rumors that she would be signing on to play a love interest to Steve Carell’s lovably dumb weatherman Brick Tamland, and though her role hasn’t been confirmed yet, Deadline is keeping that rumor up, saying she might play his wife.

Could this mean that Brick is going to have a bigger role than the occasional “I love lamp”-style one-liner? When we spoke to Carell last spring, he said he kind of hoped he wouldn’t. “I feel that Brick is best taken in small doses,” he said. “And I see it as an ensemble, aside from Will [Ferrell]. I hope it’s kind of the same setup as the first one.”

Steve Carell Says Anchorman 2 Teaser Shoot “Was Like No Time Had Passed At All”

A lot of things have changed for Steve Carell since he uttered the famous phrase “I love lamp” as Brick Tamland in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. After all, the 2004 movie came out a month before The 40-Year-Old Virgin and eight months before The Office premiered on NBC, and many of us still thought of him as “Produce Pete” from the Daily Show. So when VH1 Celebrity caught up with Carell as he was doing press for Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (in theaters June 22), we wondered if he thought his higher profile would mean a bigger part for the lovable weatherman in the sequel, Anchorman: The Legend Continues, due to begin filming next February or March.

“I have no idea. I kind of hope not,” Carell told us. “I feel that Brick is best taken in small doses. And I see it as an ensemble, aside from Will [Ferrell]. I hope it’s kind of the same setup as the first one.”

And after all these years, Carell seems to think that ensemble will be just as great together as the first time around.
