While I’m not exactly a big fan of Kanye West these days, I have to say I think I’m more excited for the cameos in Anchorman 2 than anything else. I mean I’m sure the actual plot and returning characters will have a lot to offer, but the list of celebrity cameos is pretty exciting: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jim Carrey, Kirsten Dunst, and Nicole Kidman. Watching Nicole Kidman get down with the Channel 4 News Team sounds promising to me, maybe even more than Kanye West in a news team fight. Only time will tell!
The movie doesn’t come out until December (not June 18th, so that’s out) but I think that’s plenty of time for even more celebrities to sign on for last-minute cameos. Gwyneth Paltrow, maybe? Then again if the Met Gala can’t entertain her, I’m not sure if Ron Burgundy can. Macaulay Culkin? Lindsay Lohan? Sidney Poitier? I mean, the possibilities are endless.
Anyway, it looks like it’s been quite a week for Kanye. He filmed his Anchorman cameo, he’s performing on SNL tonight, and he walked into a pole in the middle of the street yesterday. Oh you didn’t hear about that last part? Yeahhhh. He smacked his face into a street sign, licked his wounds, then got pissy with paparazzi over it. In case this is the kind of news you’re into, you’ll probably enjoy the fact that it was captured on video:
