Kristen Wiig in line for Anchorman

She could play Steve Carell’s love interest

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is still in the early stages of production, but it looks as though some major casting could be on the horizon in the form of Bridesmaids star, Kristen Wiig.

Wiig is apparently being eyed by Adam McKay as a new member of the Channel 4 news team, and more specifically as love interest to Steve Carell’s Brick Tamland.

Just how Brick will conduct himself in any kind of amorous situation remains to be seen. We’ve tried rolling out the line “I love lamp” a few times, but with decidedly mixed results.

At this stage, no casting beyond the returning principles has been confirmed, but Wiig would be a welcome addition to the gang. Let’s just hope she can hack all that testosterone…

Meanwhile, the film is inching closer to unveiling a specific release date, with October 2013 the latest whisper as to when we can expect it to arrive. Drink it in,San Diego.

Who else would you like to see join the cast? Tell us, below!
