James Mardsen set for Anchorman 2

Feb 22 2013, 4:19am CST | by

James Marsden has been cast in 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues'.

The 'X-Men' actor is expected to play bumbling hero Ron Burgandy's rival news reader in the sequel to 2004's laugh-a-minute comedy 'Anchorman', according to Deadline.

James will join original cast members including leading man Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate as well as newcomer, 'Bridesmaids' actress Kristen Wiig.

The 39-year-old hunk most recently starred in risqué comedy 'Bachelorette' and has just finished filming 'Walk Of Shame' with Elizabeth Banks.

This news comes after veteran actor Terence Stamp let slip he had been contacted by ''Will Ferrell's people'' about playing a ''Rupert Murdoch-type figure'' in the funnyman's new project.

Producer Judd Apatow recently revealed the script, penned by Will and director Adam McKay, is hysterically funny, but has vowed to keep details of the plot under wraps.

He said: ''We read it a few weeks ago and people were laughing so hard that at about 40 minutes in we all just ran out of gas. It was hard to read the whole thing because we got tired [from laughing].

''I can't give it away because it's more secret than the next 'Star Wars.'

'Anchorman 2' is eyeing up a March shoot in Atlanta for a December 2013 release.

Adam McKay, Miao Wang, and Damon Smith Talk WE THE ECONOMY: 20 SHORT FILMS YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO MISS, the Genesis of the Project, and More

Oct 30 2014 12:40pm CDT | Source: Collider

We all know the economy crashed in 2008, but how many of us know why or how? Odds are, if you pulled a random stranger off the street they would struggle to properly define a recession, let alone explain the complex series of events that led to the economic crash – I certainly can't. In a world where economic theories and practices have come to rule so much of our personal lives (looking at you, credit scores) and dominate the sphere of political discourse, it's a bit unnerving whe ...

Back in the hectic days of summer, Adam McKay was named as one of many possibilities to replace director Edgar Wright on Ant-Man. Ultimately, McKay didn’t wind up taking that gig — Peyton Reed did – but he did stick around to help with rewrites. And now it seems McKay is angling for the chance to direct a Marvel movie of his own. In a new interview, McKay hinted he may have a new job with Marvel in the works.
