‘Anchorman 2’ Casting: Brick loves Lamp…and Kristen Wiig?

“Oh my sweet Brick” is just one of the many things we could be hearing in Anchorman 2, now that resident idiot Brick Tamland has his own love interest in the form of delightful Kristen Wiig.

Here is a quote from The Wrap article regarding her entry into the KVWN team.


Kristen Wiig is being eyed for a role in “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” for Paramount Pictures, a person familiar with the negotiations has told TheWrap.

Wiig would play opposite Steve Carell, as a love interest in the sequel. The script is still being written, and no cast beyond the principals has been set.

The film is a sequel to the 2004 hit, “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” and is due to be released in October 2013.


Kristen has hit it big recently with the excellent Bridesmaids (though she has always had great presence and shown amazing comedic talent in near every role she’s acted in) and this just feels like a great fit for her. Steve Carell should have a fun time bouncing off Kristen and for the story itself it is a bonus. How will Kristen’s courtship of Brick go? Will she be the lady he eventually marries and has numerous children with? Will Ron be able to cope with loosing his Brick a second time? We have plenty of time to find out, but here is hoping that brick leaves his grenade outside the bedroom and remembers that candles are for romantic dinners and not for the dinner itself.
