Can someone please explain to me just exactly how many cameo parts there are in Anchorman 2? Are there gonna be main characters in this movie as well, or is it just gonna be famous faces popping in for three or four lines and then handing it off to the next celebrity? The list of cameos was already incredibly long, but today pictures got released of Drake on-set filming something, and I’m like — what are we doing here, guys? Are we just throwing money at this project and seeing what sticks? Is this all a cruel ruse to get me to buy music like the schemes that took place in Josie And The Pussycats? I remember that movie, and I will NOT be the consumer who puts on my happy cat ears and buys Drake’s new album just because Anchorman 2 told me to!
Okay maybe I’m overreacting, but there are already a ton of people in this movie! Most of them are people I’m peeing-my-pants-excited about, like Kristen Wiig and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who apparently have a knock-down drag-out fight with Sacha Baron Cohen, or people I’m just regular excited about, like Harrison Ford and Jim Carrey, and Liam Neeson, but that’s a lot of people! Oh and don’t forget Kanye West! He’s making a cameo in there as well, presumably just so the producers could get him into a funny outfit, which I can respect, frankly, because oh my god, Drake and that afro. Totally worth it.
The Anchorman sequel will be released on December 20th of this year, which should be plenty of time for the rest of Hollywood to shoot their cameos.
