Anchorman 2 is hardly skimping on the big name background players. Will Ferrell's long awaited sequel has roped in comedians, dramatic actors, and music artists alike to fill its San Diego-set scenes, recently adding Kanye West to the list... and draping him in a particularly noteworthy getup.

Comic powerhouse Jim Carrey will reunite with Bruce Almighty, Horton Hears a Who, and Burt Wonderstone costar Steve Carell for the upcoming sequel. Here, we see him teeing off (and matching tresses) with Carell's fellow newsman Paul Rudd.

We're not quite sure what Cleopatra-inspired character Kirsten Dunst is embodying in this scene, but she's clearly bringing some mystique to the set of Anchorman 2.

When satire doesn't work, brute force does. Masters of the former arts face off in this set photo, where Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, dressed in news anchor garb, rain blows upon fellow sociopolitical comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

A constant companion to Will Ferrell, it's no surprise that John C. Reilly is showing up on the set of Anchorman 2. What might be a tad more jarring is his attire here. Anchorman took place in the 1960s... does Anchorman 2 make a backwards jump to the 1860s?

Liam Neeson

Perhaps the most exciting cast member of all: the usually no-nonsense Liam Neeson is all smiles (yet still viciously armed) in character for Anchorman 2. He'll probably still have to kill a few people, it's only to be expected, but maybe he'll toss a few snarky one-liners into the mix for this one.

And here, we have the great Harrison Ford. A man who has fought Imperial Stormtroopers, Nazis, terrorists, and scariest of all, Tommy Lee Jones. But Anchorman 2 will channel some of Ford's comic chops... maybe some of that patented Han Solo wit for this role? Or perhaps just more Morning Glory grouchiness....

We're, um... we're not too sure about this one. But hey, get on board. Werewolves are in, people.
