Twitter has become a key source of casting announcements, and Kristen Wiig's role in Anchorman: The Legend Continues has been confirmed through the social media outlet. Both director Adam McKay and Christina Applegate took to Twitter to announce the addition of Wiig (Bridesmaids) to the cast of the Anchorman sequel.
From Adam McKay @GhostPanther: "Just found out Kristen Wiig officially on board for Anchorman 2. Cannonball!"
From Christina Applegate @1capplegate: "So excited Kristen Wiig has joined our cast for anchorman2. Going 2 b best movie ever made. Besides the best movies ever made."
Original Anchorman stars Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, and Applegate are set to return for more news-casting fun. And if the rumors are true, Wiig would be playing Carell's love interest.
