Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell in Bewitched

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Nicole Kidman has filmed a cameo in Anchorman: The Legend Continues. This would mark the first on-screen collaboration between Kidman and Will Ferrell since their tepidly loved TV-remake Bewitched. That film is most favorably remembered for Steve Carell’s hilarious cameo, not the wild changes in tone and the lack of on-screen chemistry between Ferrell and Kidman. In any case, it’s unclear what role Kidman is playing in the Anchorman sequel.

Also of note in the THR article is that both Vince Vaughn and Luke Wilson have filmed small parts for the sequel as well. Both appeared in the original, with Vaughn playing Wes Mantooth in an extended cameo and Wilson playing rival anchor Frank Vichard in the infamous Anchorman rumble. With Vichard losing both arms by the end of the first film, presenting the character in the sequel would have to be somewhat creative.

Meanwhile, Harrison Ford has confirmed his role in the sequel, indicating his part is “quite small” and could be easily cut. He filmed his scene with Ferrell and Christina Applegate and called the experience “bizarre.”
