In case you missed it, Paul Rudd hosted Saturday Night Live last weekend. During his opening monologue, his fellow ‘Anchorman 2’ cast members Steve Carell, Will Ferrell, and David Koechner joined him onstage for an accapella version of the 1976 hit ‘Afternoon Delight,’ along with musical guest One Direction.
Here are a few teasers from the Anchorman sequel, Anchorman: The Legend Continues, starring Will Ferrell (Ron Burgundy), Steve Carell (Brick Tamland), Paul Rudd (Brian Fantana), and David Koechner (Champ Kind)! The film is due to release in December 2013.
Insiders tell TVLine that producers mounted an 11th hour effort last month to coax [Steve] Carell into making a cameo in the show’s hour-long swan song. And while no one is confirming that the final diplomatic push proved successful, no one is denying it either… a source close to the show cryptically teases, “Don’t rule anything out.”
“I figured the character would go back and visit everybody, but he wouldn’t do it on camera at this point,” he said. “I think he had grown past the idea of being in the documentary, that was my take on it. That [Michael Scott] had said goodbye to that aspect of his life, that that’s not what was important to him. I just thought, yeah he’d go back and visit, but he wouldn’t want the camera crew to be documenting it.”
