Kristen Wiig May Replace "Lamp" In Anchorman



Let's be real: Saturday Night Live just isn't the same without America's beloved Kristen Wiig. After leaving the late-night show, Comedy's Golden Girl went on to explore more dramatic roles in independent films, leaving everyone anticipating a silver screen success akin to that of Bridesmaids. Well, some recent speculation regarding Wiig's next role has put us in a "glass case of emotion."

The actress is being considered for a part in the extremely hyped Anchorman: The Legend Continues. How could anything possibly top this news, you ask? She may play love interest to Steve Carell's character, Brick Tamland— the lovable, yet clueless weatherman. Imagining the wackadoo companion of an admitted lamp-lover seems like the perfect role for a lady with few comedic boundaries.

The sequel is set to be released in October 2013, meaning the script is still in the preliminary stage, providing a lot of time for speculation and spoiler alerts, alike. We're just hoping this rumor to be true, because, while the film's already star-studded cast is sure to gain laughs all on its own, a little Wiig doesn't hurt. (TheWrap)
