Vince Vaughn Teases Return Of Wes Mantooth In 'Anchorman 2'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist August 24, 2012 at 9:39AM

Here is what we do know: Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Steve Carell and Christina Applegate will be back for "Anchorman 2." Fred Willard? Probably not. But there are a whole host of supporting and incidental characters from the first film who could all theoretically dip their toes into the follow-up. And it looks like Ron Burgundy's biggest rival will be on his heels again.

Vince Vaughn Anchorman

Here is what we do know: Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Steve Carell and Christina Applegate will be back for "Anchorman 2." Fred Willard? Probably not. But there are a whole host of supporting and incidental characters from the first film who could all theoretically dip their toes into the follow-up. And it looks like Ron Burgundy's biggest rival will be on his heels again.

Chatting with U.K. press about "The Watch," Vince Vaughn teased that KQHS Channel 9 Evening News Team anchor Wes Mantooth stands pretty good odds at returning. "The chances are better than not that Wes Mantooth will be there," he said.

Of all the amazing lines in "Anchorman," one of the most oddly enduring has been Mantooth's outburst during a verbal showdown with Ron, that "Dorothy Mantooh is a saint!" Will we finally get to see the woman who has stoked such passion in Wes Mantooth? It would be a helluva role to fill (and we think it's probably best left to to the imagination) but Vaughn has the casting suggestion of the year. "I don't know if anyone can fill that role, she's such a saint. Angela Lansbury as Dorothy?" That would actually rule.

Production on the film is slated to get underway in early 2013 for a possible release next year as well, though no date has been locked down. But you can probably add Vince Vaughn as one of the likely many participants in the film. [Digital Spy via Empire]
