So yeah, just like Frank Vitchard didn't see it coming when his arm got cut off during the news anchor rumble in "Anchorman," nor did we see this. But now that we do, we will dance until the sun rises.

When he was asked straight out earlier this month on the February 8th Empire Podcast (while promoting the UK release of “Wreck-It Ralph”) whether his “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” cameo had been decided on yet, John C. Reilly was very non-committal. “I don’t know that I’m going to be in 'Anchorman 2,' ” he said. “I don’t know that there’s a spot for me or not. I have no idea. I think I’d almost prefer to just be an audience member and just enjoy it and not be part of it. But we’ll see...any chance to work with Will and Adam; I’d be a fool to pass that up.” Well, it looks like that chance has come up, and Reilly has elected not to be a fool and instead film a brief cameo in the highly anticipated sequel.

Not A Whale's Vagina: 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues' News Team Pack Bags For New York

Among the many, many, many things that made "Anchorman" such a perfectly calibrated comedy was its decision to set it in San Diego. The story of an egotistical man-child newsman could only really work in a city that (at the time) would be considered a small market, where such behaviour could go unchecked as long as professionalism stayed intact when it came to newstime. But of course, bigger and better things were on the horizon for Ron Burgundy as that film ended, and it looks like he'll be saying goodbye to that whale's vagina.

When you think of comedy, you don't immediately think of the name James Marsden. But the actor, perhaps best known for playing Cyclops in the "X-Men" movies, does have a background of laughter that has included most recently "Bachelorette," a stint on "30 Rock" and a role in "Death At A Funeral" among others. And eagle-eyed fans of "Zoolander" also know that he appeared ever so fleetingly as John Wilkes Booth. But now he's gearing up for what will easily be his biggest comedy role yet, and he'll face off against one of the funniest people out there.

There is probably no greater raconteur or actor you'd want to talk to more than Terence Stamp. Seriously, just read this interview we did with him at the tail end of last year -- dude knows how to tell a story. And recently, he regaled an audience in the U.K. with a few more tales following a screening of his latest film, "Song For Marion." And the actor dropped of couple intriguing nuggets that are worth a mention.

With filming set to begin on "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" later this spring, it's only a matter of time before the lid is torn off all the surprises that are in store for the long-awaited return of Ron Burgundy and his newsteam. And while the core group of players are set to reprise their roles, it looks like one very, very funny face is joining the gang.

It's been about six years in the making -- or at least it seems like they've been talking about it that long -- but a pipedream comedy is not only finally happening, it now has a concrete release date.

Kristen Wiig Eyed For Brick Tamland's Love Interest in 'Anchorman 2,' October 2013 Release Reportedly Slated

From simply the briefest of glances at actress Kristen Wiig's film career post-'SNL,' any hesitance on her part toward that decision should now be erased by the abundance of potential roles she has on deck. Since starring in indie comedy “Imogene” which premiered at TIFF in the fall (review here), she's sidestepped any return to the “Bridesmaids” well for more intriguing fare, such as the ensemble comedy-drama "Hateship, Friendship," but now she may be prepared to take a turn in another major comedy franchise's sandbox instead.

To say that Adam McKay is busy would be an understatement. The writer/producer/director has about a half dozen various projects on the go, and when we caught up with him this afternoon, he was in the midst of doing interviews for dark indie comedy "Fully Loaded," which he executive produced. Directed by Shira Piven, and written by and starring Paula Killen and Lisa Orkin (who based it on their play from Uprights Citizens Brigade), the film chronicles one night on the town with two single Moms, whose journey for a hook up finds them comedically reflecting on their lives, past relationships, children and more.
