Kristen Wiig to Join 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues' Cast

Kristen Wiig, best known for Saturday Night Live, may be casted for a role in Anchorman: The Legend Continues for Paramount Pictures.  Wiig would play a role as Steve Carell's love interest.  Wiig has also appeared in Bridesmaids, and is filming an interesting movie titled Hateship Friendship.

No cast has been set outside of the core actors from the original film, and the script is not yet completed.  So, it is a great possibility that Paramount will have Wiig included in the sequel, especially since the type of comedy is right up her alley.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues is due to hit theaters in October 2013, and hopefully, Wiig will be a part of the project, as her and Steve Carell would probably have great on screen chemistry.
