But now, there’s some spice in this soup. Writer and director Adam McKay has confirmed that Kristen Wiig will join the cast of Anchorman 2.

Wiig, for those that don’t know, is one of the funniest people on the planet right now. She killed it on SNL, she killed it in MacGruber, she killed it in Bridesmaids and now I’m sure she’ll kill it in freakin’ Anchorman 2.

The film is set to come out at the end of the year. Cannoball!
