This Is 40 actor Paul Rudd is set to reprise his role as Brian Fantana in the comedy movie sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Paul has been talking about the movie and how he found out that Anchorman 2 was being made, admitting that he was kind of left out the loop and found out like the rest of us.
Rudd was in an interview with Digital Spy, when he told them, “When it was announced, we didn't even really know [beforehand]. Will Ferrell was on a talk show as Ron Burgundy - I just remember the day before I got the message, 'You gotta watch Conan tomorrow night', and that was how I found out!”
Anchorman: The Legend Continues will see the return of the news team, starring Paul Rudd as Brian Fantana, Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy, Steve Carell as Brick Tamland and David Koechner as Champ Kind, as well as Christina Applegate as Veronica Corningstone.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues will once again be directed by Adam McKay and is due to begin shooting next month, with a release date currently set for December 20 in both the US and the UK.
