Expect cameo appearances from rappers Drake and Kanye West in the upcoming sequel to Anchorman, titled Anchorman: The Legend Continues, which opens on December 20.

Details on what each of them are playing in the film are being kept under wraps.

And, by the way, Meagan Good is also in the film sequel, playing Ron Burgundy’s boss, whom he apparently romances as well.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues stars Will Ferrell, reprising his role as Ron Burgundy, with returning stars Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd, and Christina Applegate, and new additions Kristen Wiig and James Marsden.

Directed by Adam McKay, from his screenplay, here's the film's first trailer which features Meagan Good, but not Drake nor West:

    I dont know what my fellow black women below me are watching but all I see (even in the 90s) is black actresses with white men. I've only seen Save the last dance and some Wesley Snipes flick recently, where he sexed the ww but that was it (no build on the relationship) where you have bm/ww. When Whitney passed (RIP) I fully expected them to talk about The Bodyguard (white lover) as opposed to The Preacher's Wife (black lover, where her acting was much better) et voila... they pushed the Whitney-Kevin thing, heck he spoke at her funeral over her black husband or any of her black male co-stars.

    I will admit I can’t help but being drawn in to any discussion that leads to people compiling lists to prove a point about whether one version of on-screen interracial pairings are getting more play than another. Once or twice before I was tempted to put one together myself. Now is as good time as any.

    Below is a list I did in no time flat based upon my own memory and the help of IMDb. I have said before on this site if you ever want to see how some IR pairings are slanted over others all you need to do is go to the IMDb pages of the most in demand or historically significant black actresses. So the list I came up with are movies that feature a black woman-white male coupling or at least includes in some form some sort of hookup/relationship/sexual activity between black women and white men. I was only looking at black and white pairings by the way, other races were excluded from my selections. I wasn’t going to take too much time trying to come up with the names of every film made with such a pairing, but even in the short time I did in my search I came up with I think it is a formidable list.

    Let me point out that my list includes only a couple non-American produced films and all of these films have already been released (don’t need to pile on by including the steady flow of Zoe Saldana movies that haven’t reached theaters yet). I don’t go back any further than the 1980s. And these movies all made it into theaters, none were straight-to-video/DVD releases. A good chunk of them, if not most, were mainstream Hollywood flicks including quite a few tentpole flicks. And if I may say, unlike some posters in this thread I didn’t resort to picking iffy flicks like “I, Robot” or “Dirty Pretty Things” in which no romantic relationship or hookup or sexual activity occurred between the black and white characters in question. Heck, in Dirty Pretty Things the white Russian doorman actually got to have sex with the black prostitute he desired, but nothing happened between Ejiofor’s Nigerian doctor and the Turkish woman whom he befriended (circumstances prevented it from happening). So perhaps I should have added Dirty Pretty Things to MY list.

    A side note: I decided to be kind by not including Afro-Latina Rosario Dawson. That’s about another half dozen films alone that I could have taken from her body of work. :)

    Let me also add that as I mentioned before I do not object to these movies; many of them I actually enjoy thoroughly. The coupling of black women and white men on the big screen is not a hangup of mine; the one-sided portrayal of black and white pairings in general is. I’ve been consistent that my gripe regarding this topic remains that such IR pairings in films lean far more towards portraying white men with black women than they do towards black men and white women. To me it is just the same as, hypothetically speaking, if Hollywood was okay at showing lesbians in their mainstream movies but shied away from showing two men who were in love. It wouldn’t be the onscreen portrayal of gay women that would be the problem. Rather the problem would be the lack of portrayal of gay men in comparison. I don’t think I can explain it any simpler than that. Overall I think it is natural and realistic for black people to be paired mostly with other black people on the big screen, just as it is natural and realistic for white people to be paired with mostly other white people in movies. That doesn’t mean interracial pairings shouldn’t get their share of onscreen presentation in films. And it certainly doesn’t mean that only certain kinds of interracial relationships should be more readily presented to the masses than other kinds of interracial relationships in Hollywood films (which is unfortunately is the case).

    Granted this whole debate below started when someone grumbled something about another portrayal of a white man with a black lady, but seriously a couple of the responses to that come off as a little unhinged. Sorry, there is no other word for it when one is so forceful in his or her denial. And it is a denial. On primetime TV, and this includes both cable and broadcast, there is essentially an equal split in terms of couplings that are white men-black women and those that are black men-white women. It isn’t overly slanted in either direction so for anyone to claim that “all they see is black men with white women on TV” is just plain seeing only what they want to. And, no, all the BM-WW hookups on 90210 don’t change the equation (although I admit I can understand if others mistakenly think it does).

    The one caveat though may be the few recent hour-long shows in which black women have been cast as the leads. Scandal. Deception. Hawthorne. All series in which the black female character has romantic/sexual relationships with white men, sometimes exclusively with white men. Can add on the new Thandie Newton TV series too. Should be noted too that in many of these shows there can be explicit sex scenes between, say, a married white man (President!) and his black mistress without much reported racist backlash being directed towards the show. Meanwhile a 30 second Cheerios commercial brings out all the racist wacko nutbags (both black and white) because the little mulatto girl was produced by the union of a black father and a white mother. Talk about perspective. Still as I mentioned earlier the overall the portrayal of black and white relationships have still been relatively balanced on primetime TV.

    Daytime TV? Totally different story. It is like a plantation mentality. While there have been some examples of black male characters and white female characters, the majority have actually been those involving black women and white men. This has been documented and written about in articles, including the fact that the hate mail tends to be much greater for a daytime show that uses a BM-WW couple than when there is a WM-BW couple.

    As for Anchor Man 2 there is nothing wrong with the casting of Goode as the sexy boss to play off of Ferrell. However I’m waiting for all the indignant women who felt it was beneath Kerry Washington’s dignity to lower herself to play a woman involved with a character played by (gasp!) Craig Robinson. Because, of course, beautiful women are NEVER paired with average dudes in films, especially in comedies I suppose. Are these same ladies who were disdainful of that pairing in “Peeples” equally offended by Meagan being the romantic interest of Will Ferrell who isn’t exactly Mr. Debonair himself? Or is the idea of being paired with a white man, any white man, a compliment in of itself to these ladies?

    Thank You ACCIDENTALVISITOR,

    I was actually thinking about you when this subject broke. I (and those who've been reading S&A) know this is your sweet spot, so I was hoping you came through.

    Of special note, I loved how you slide "Peeples" (black on black love) in the mix. I think you've just about quieted the noise.

  • ScriptTease | June 20, 2013 3:07 AMReply

    LORD FATHER GOD, HELP US. Giving some of these comments, black folks are so lost. Arguing about having white folks desire our black asses. Can it get any worse than this GOD. We need help, Jesus. Why must we hate each other? What am I missing GOD, what is so special about White folks that other Black folks see, but I have yet to see it? Again I BEG of you, Help us Lord. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

    @ Sterling--you still haven't answered my question? Where are these men in this thread you are referring to?

    It's confusing because all I see in this post are members of the negroid male species honing in on ONE aspect of this movie and their main takeaway is worrying about where da white wimmenz at.

    Something is wrong with african-americans. Ya'll are sick in the head, just speaking as a chick from africa. This is the sickest conversation on here! And Tambay is wrong for this headline. Very wrong. Ya'll keep discussing race and spinning in race mud when ya'll could be discussing ideas. Ideas. Not this race shit. It's sad of you. And i feel said for you. I am not condescending, with this level of conversation, i don't have to. It's just the same shit over and over with ya'll. Tambay is wrong for that headline.

  • Nadia | June 19, 2013 8:34 PM

    Oh shut up! Try watching the trailer before running at the mouth about how "wrong" the headline is. If you did watch the trailer, which you clearly didn't, the headline would make sense to you.

    And please get out of here with your condescending "chick from Africa" attitude. I'm a "chick from Africa" too, a continent that's full of people who are also "sick in the head" to use your phrasing. SMH. Just go sit in the corner and be quiet.

    @AFROSYLING

    I care about black actresses working. Too many unemployed talented black actresses, too few roles.

    @MR DOBIE

    Don't have time to search, I'm heading outside to enjoy the sun. But here is a list at the site jeffandcorey "interracial romance in the movies". Just google it!

    Also, you have a lot of nerve listing "Look Who". What was the original? Idiot.

    Remember Eric Lasalle in ER? This is what we see on tv. He shut it down. Google it. Anytime, there is a black male on tv, you know what's going to happen. Maybe you are old and don't watch certain shows. But anyone tuning into channels like CW11 will tell you that they ALWAYS put the black guy with a white girl. It's the rule, it seems. 90210, for example. It's one reason I never watch that channel. I recall when Alfrie Woodard moved to Wisteria Lane in 'Desperate Housewives' with her black son. I said to myself, "What white girl is age will he be hooking up with". Said that to myself on the first episode when they moved in. Knowing how television is, it wasn't long before I was proven right.

    @STERLING COOPER

    Count care less what you black men do, you all look like the fools in the end. Look at the divorce rates between BM/WW. I hope you ALL marry white women, please. Maybe then black women will have a chance at happiness and I won't have to deal with all you bastards coming on to me. Look at the growing number of single white women with biracial babies. More and more of the giving the up for adoption then ,owing on to find white men. No baggage. At home, enjoying my summer break, watching The People's Court TODAY, dumb white girl gave all her money to her no good black boyfriend, now suing. Typical. Unemployed black man depending on white women/girl. This is white women's future. I'm going into my 3rd year of medical school. Guess what I was advised to do by many arou d me? STAY AWAY FROM BLACK MEN if I want to be happy/successful.

  • Sterling Cooper | June 19, 2013 5:59 PM

  • mr dobie | June 19, 2013 4:50 PMReply

    @Lynette I'm puzzled. Can you name a few of these tv shows or movies that partner black men with white women as love interests/sexual partners? I really can't think of very many but I can easily think of films and tv shows that sexually partner white men and black women (Scandal, Guess Who, Monster's Ball, Fantastic Four, Friends, Alfie, Die Another Day, Something New, The Words etc etc etc, many many more) Since you commented 'that's all we see on tv' I might be mistaken.

  • mr dobie | June 19, 2013 11:29 AMReply

    Anchorman 2 trailer looks ok not lol funny, and looks like race is going to replace sexism as a big source of laughs. Seeing Meagan Good as potential girlfriend of Will Ferrell raises a question, when are black men going to get to be objects of desire/lovers/boyfriends of white women as much as black women are objects of desire/lovers/girlfriends of white men? It's fine having black women in these roles but when is Hollywood going to even things out for black guys? Just asking.

  • mawon | June 20, 2013 9:05 AM

    @Script

    That's a gross generalization. I don't know where you are. I mean I've heard it's different on the West Coast, but where I stay, I don't see a significant number of black men with white women. I still feel valued by my men.

    There are a few who loooove to straight dog out black women (as we can see in this thread). But they're in the minority. It doesn't seem that way because stupid people tend to make a lot of noise. But I still have faith in my brothers.

  • ScriptTease | June 20, 2013 2:52 AM

    "when are black men going to get to be objects of desire/lovers/boyfriends of white women as much as black women are objects of desire/lovers/girlfriends of white men?"
    I feel sick to the damn stomach. Maybe Hollywood sees it enough already up close, live, and in living color. I just don't know what to say about that statement.
    My question is to you, and people like you Mr. Dobie is WHEN ARE BLACK WOMEN GOING TO GET TO BE THE OBJECTS OF DESIRE/LOVERS/BOYFRIENDS OF BLACK MEN? And damn a movie, I'm talking about real life. When will black men put black women up on the same pedestal as white women?

  • CareyCarey | June 19, 2013 11:51 PM

    I hear you Taz, this sandbox is starting to reek of stale piss. I mean, when I think about it, I wanna tell my feet "Feet don't fall me now" 'cause subliminal messages are raining down on my head".

    All this talk about who's screwing who, ain't a good thang. Come on now, I've never liked cream in my coffee, I like mine black, but some folks love the pink toe. I'm tellin' ya, my momma told me if you play with a puppy it will lick you in your face, so I don't even wanna entertain the thought that it's ago to dilute the coffee.

    You know, I am reminded of that gay crowd. Now that's a mighty powerful group of funny folks. They put their heads together (no pun intended) to voice a position that it's okay to love the one your with, even if that somebody's body, looks just like yours. And then, low-n-behold, er'body started singing that tune. But I don't have to venture down that crooked slippery slope to know there's some mess at the end of that road.

    So when I look at all those movies (100 and counting) in which Leon is stroking Betty Crocker and Wentworth is screwing Aunt Jemima, I know it's time for me to exit stage left. I mean, something just ain't right about that, and more importantly, some folks are advocating for more of the same Frank Whites and Broomhilda Hills running up the hill to fetch something other than water.

    Damnit, where is the list of black films which highlight a loving, progressive black couple? Yeah, that's what gets my heart pumping. If they can't bring those films out of the darkness, they gonna make me act a fool up in here, up in here. In the interim, feet don't fail me now.

  • TAZ | June 19, 2013 9:25 PM

    Carey,

    Whats up, darling? :) Why can't I be like you? What is good for the gander is not good for the goose? I answered the question and I am good. He replied with 4 actresses, (one or two many people don't consider to be black or who did not play 'black' women in the films) and James Bond movies....he actually said Skyfall. LMBO. Anywho, I ignored your 'ambiguous' post and I am ignoring Curtis' post as well because his comments show where his head is at for all to see. No reason for this adult to play in a kid sandbox.

    Is that what you were looking for? Toodles.

    Sorry @Taz and @Lynette. Nice list. But you must not have checked to see how many movies and TV shows feature relationships between black women and white men, because it's easily double. Here are just a few to start:

    - Lakeview Terrace (pretty much most of Kerry Washington's TV shows and movies)
    - Something New
    - Guess Who
    - Scandal (like I said, pretty much most of Kerry Washington's stuff)
    - The Last King Of Scotland (like I said, most of Kerry Washington's work).
    - Zebrahead
    - Monster's Ball (A lot of Halle Berry's films)
    - Bulworth (like I said, a lot of Halle Berry's films)
    - Swordfish (like I said, a lot of Halle Berry's films)
    - Cloud Atlas (like I said, a lot of Halle Berry's films)
    - Dark Tide (like I said, a lot of Halle Berry's films)
    - Die Another Day (like I said, a lot of Halle Berry's films)
    - John Tucker must dies
    - Pretty much every James Bond film in which any of the Bond Girls is black, like Skyfall recently
    - The Leading Man (pretty much most of Thandie Newton's TV shows and movies)
    - Rogue (like I said, pretty much most of Thandie Newton's TV shows and movies)
    - Mission Impossible 2 (Or like I said, almost every Thandie Newton film or tv show)
    - Soul Man
    - Alfie
    - Colombiana (almost every Zoe Saldana film)
    - The Words (like I said, almost every Zoe Saldana film)
    - Star Trek Into Darkness (like I said, almost every Zoe Saldana film)
    - The Losers (like I said, almost every Zoe Saldana film)
    - Angel Heart
    - Joyful Noise
    - Wonderful World
    - The Bodyguard
    - In Our Nature

    And that's just a starter list. I could go on forever. And I didn't even have to reach to far back into history to pull these out. Most of these are current.

    So please, GTFO with your bullshit claims! Or you want to try again? I'm here all day.

    Are you guys young? I mean, really? I agree with @afrostyling above, but I could not resist an easy challenge and I am just going to name a few pretty much very well known movies:

    Under the Cherry Moon
    Waiting to Exhale
    He Got Game
    Save the last dance
    Mandingo
    Jungle Fever
    Guess who's coming to dinner
    Out of Sight
    Honey
    Breaking all the rules
    Finding Forrester
    Hitch
    Our Family Wedding
    Othello
    Boogie Nights
    Pieces of April
    Mississippi Masala
    I'm gonna get you sucka
    100 Rifles
    O
    Bad Company
    Against the Ropes
    Basquiat
    The Brothers
    Jackie Brown
    The Pelican Brief

    And ....let's not forget Sidney Poitier in Guess who's coming to dinner......just to name a few movies. And trust, there are many more. :)

    Then we can go to Shadowboxer and probably hundreds of XXX movies. Then TV movies. In fact, there was an article about 5 days or so ago where people were wondering who would place the love interest of Chris Tucker new movie.

    So we agree that each gender remembers movies that they are not representative in and move on, so that no one has to say they were ...wrong?

  • Curtis | June 19, 2013 5:45 PM

    #Lynette you came back but you still didn't answer the question, so I'll ask it again because maybe you missed it. You say that "all we see" on TV are black men with white women. Can you name all those TV shows you're talking about where we see black men with white women? I'm dying to know.

  • Sterling Cooper | June 19, 2013 5:13 PM

    @Lynette-- Sweetheart, of COURSE we're complaining! You ladies are watching all this TV instead of making our dinners! Come ON, what's a fella got to do get a sandwich around here? Let me give you feminists a little tip: push-up bra. It doesn't just boost your confidence!

    @Blutopaz-- get a job, hippie!

  • LYNETTE | June 19, 2013 4:55 PM

    My thoughts exactly. These black boys nowadays are COMPLAINING like little girls. And for what? How about doing something to benefit your community. Unbelievable. "Why are black women getting roles, getting attention! Not fair!" This is what black women must choose from? Whining little girly men. Not me!

  • Curtis | June 19, 2013 4:49 PM

    @Lynette - seriously, you're off your meds. Chill for a minute. Let me ask you this. You say that "all we see" on TV are black men with white women. Can you name all those TV shows you're talking about where we see black men with white women?

  • BluTopaz | June 19, 2013 4:45 PM

    @ Sterling: "the men are talking"

    "men"?--lol.

  • Sterling Cooper | June 19, 2013 4:08 PM

    @Lynette-- whoa whoa whoa, cool down, there, baby, the men are talking. Put on a little lipstick, spruce yourself up a little bit, sweetheart, you'll feel better.

  • Lynette | June 19, 2013 3:41 PM

    Are you f***king kidding me!? You dumbass! THAT'S ALL WE SEE ON TV: black men and white women. Now we are seeing things turn around and black women are getting ROLES and you, little bit*h black male that you are, are COMPLAINING that you want BLACK MEN to be the object of desire for non-black women. THAT'S ALL WE SEE ON TV you piece of sh!t! Guess what, you dumbass, you will be seeing way more of this on TV and in movies since this is NEW. That's why it's beginning to bother you, because you didn't see it before. All I have seen is black men-white women on tv and in movies. Why do all these black actresses cry foul when you see these black actors always paired with white women or Spanish women. This is we rarely see black women in movies. NOW YOU bas!ard black men should deal with black women getting more roles, opposite white men or not. We've watched you black men for years, putting us down and flashing your coonish smile when you have white women on your arm only to end up looking like fools. Guess what buddy, IT'S BLACK WOMEN'S TIME TO SHINE. THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL BE SEEING MORE AND MORE ON TV. DEAL WITH IT.

    Might take quite awhile ... Hollywood films have been and continue to be focused on the fantasies of white men.
