With sequels being produced left and right, it only makes sense that these highly anticipated films make big new casting moves to live up to the hype.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues director Adam McKay welcomed Kristen to the star-studded cast by tweeting, "Just found out Kristen Wiig officially on board for Anchorman 2. Cannonball!"
No news yet on what exactly Kristen's role in the comedy will entail, but alongside stars like Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate and Steve Carrell, there's sure to be a good amount of laughs! "So excited Kristen Wiig has joined our cast for anchorman2," Christina tweeted. "Going 2 b best movie ever made. Besides the best movies ever made."
The movie hits theaters in December 2013.
Meanwhile, it looks like Emily is ready to jump from TV to the big screen with the leading lady role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, starring as a love interest for Chris Evans' Captain America. It's also rumored that Scarlett Johansson may appear in the film, appearing as her superhero alter ego, The Black Widow.
This will be Emily's first role on the big screen since her leading lady success with ABC's Revenge. The movie will be released in April 2014.
