Meagan Good And Dylan Baker Sign On For Anchorman: The Legend Continues

As great as the core cast of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy was - featuring Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Christina Applegate - perhaps even more impressive was its supporting cast and impressive number of cameos. Fred Willard, Chris Parnell, Vince Vaughn, Luke Wilson, Tim Robbins, Ben Stiller, Seth Rogen, Kathryn Hahn, Danny Trejo, Fred Armisen, Paul F. Tompkins and more found their way into the crazy story of reporters down in San Diego, so why would we expect that Anchorman: The Legend Continues would be any less star-studded?

Kristen Wiig, John C. Reilly, James Marsden and Terence Stamp have all been mentioned in regards to the cast of the upcoming sequel, but now Deadline has added a couple more names to that list. Meagan Good, who currently stars on the television drama Deception, and Dylan Baker have both signed on for parts in the film. According to the site's sources, Good will be playing Ron Burgundy's boss, but they don't have a character description for Baker.

As a funny extra tidbit, the site also reached out to the studio about the John C. Reilly story that popped up last night and they received this response:

"We were looking for a stand-in for lighting purposes who looks like John C. Reilly. We always demand that every stand-in looks like John C. Reilly”

Anchorman: The Legend Continues is currently in production and will be in theaters this December. To keep track of all the latest updates, be sure to head over to our Blend Film Database.
