Today Christina Applegate tweeted: “So excited Kristen Wiig has joined our cast for Anchorman 2.” Applegate, returning for Anchorman: The Legend, confirmed a resolution to the reports that Wiig, the former Saturday Night Live breakout and Bridesmaids star, had been in talks to play the wife of Brick Tamland played by Steve Carell. Wiig fits director Adam McKay’s hype that he plans to create “a murderer’s row of the best day players ever … every single one-line or three-line role [will] just be someone we just love.” Sequel is due out December 20th.
Meh. I've never liked her, but whatever.
