When you gear up for a Will Ferrell movie, there are a few faces you expect to see making up the supporting cast. After Anchorman was stockpiled with faithful Ferrell friends, from the featured players of Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner, to the smaller roles of Kathryhn Hahn and Vince Vaughn. But Anchorman 2 is reaching beyond the usuals, grabbing at anyone and everyone in the corners of show business to fill its set. By now, you’ve probably heard the outrageous news that Kanye West would be playing a role in the upcoming sequel — as you can tell from the image below, it’s going to be a doozy. But West is only one of a large number of huge stars to join in on the San Diego fun.

Check out the gallery to see who else made the cut!
