Kristen Wiig Might Play Brick Tamland's Love Interest in 'Anchorman 2'

Kristen Wiig is in negotiations for a role in Anchorman sequel, according to The Wrap. Wiig would potentially playing the love interest of Steve Carell's knucklehead weatherman Brick Tamland. Will Ferell and Adam McKay are still writing the script to Anchorman 2, which is set to begin production in March and to release in October 2013. Wiig has worked previously with Anchorman 2 producer Judd Apatow on Bridesmaids and in supporting roles in his other movies. So far, Wiig is the first and only new (potential) cast member to be announced, with only the original news team (Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner) being the only actors who are officially signed on as of now. If Kristen Wiig's possible involvement is any indication, look for the cast for this movie to continue to grow more and more awesome as each new person is added.
