Say Whaaat? ‘Anchorman 2′ Trailer Features First Look at News Team and Kristen Wiig’s Character

The first trailer for Anchorman: The Legend Continues features our first look at footage from the film, including a 1980s version of the news team featuring Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and David Koechner.  The news team is seen sporting perms in the footage. The Adam McKay film is scheduled for release on December 20, 2013 and there will be additional trailer footage showing in front of World War Z this weekend.

The trailer is fairly spoilerish since it’s clear there’s either a divorce or a “break” for Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy and his wife Veronica Corningstone played by Christina Applegate. Burgundy’s love interest is played by Meagan Good (Californication). We also get to see footage of Kristen Wiig’s character who is positioned as a love-interest for Carell’s character Brick Tamland. I personally would like to see more of this character, who on first appearance seems to be a female version of Tamland rather than an interesting new kind of character.

    Can anyone place the guy who says they are starting a 24 hr news channel? Sounds like Ed Helms but the face doesn’t match. Greg Kinnear?

    The face is kinda shaped like Jason Sudeikis, but I’m pretty sure that’s not him

    I think it is Ed Helms.

    Don’t think it’s Greg Kinnear either. Doesn’t sound like him.

    I definitely remember seeing him somewhere. Just can’t pinpoint.

    By the way, GREAT trailer.

    Actually, could that guy be Dylan Baker?

  9. Vlad

    Yeah, I think it’s Dylan Baker, he’s definitely in the movie.

  10. ASFan

    I pretty much looked through the cast list on IMDb to see who that guy resembled.

    Voice doesnt sound deep enough for Helms. Thinking Dylan Baker too

  12. Mario

    Holy shit, it IS Dylan Baker. I retract. And I rejoice!

    The additional footage in front of World War Z consistent of one alternate bit in the RV with a Brick Tamland punchline. Otherwise, the trailer was the same as released earlier in the week.

  14. [...] though. He’s got another film opening on December 20 that you might have heard of (hint: it’s kind of a big deal). Steve Carell in [...]

    Greg Kinnear was in Anchorman 2 - he was Veronica’s gentlemen lover with the mind reading skills…
