Good morning, San Diego! Do you hear those loud noises? Is the smell of rich mahogony wafting across your shores once again?
All good things, as the sights and sounds of greatness are descending upon your fair city once more.This time, however, Harrison Ford is joining in on the fun. Indeed, the esteemed actor is joining the cast of the upcoming Anchorman 2 (currently known as Anchorman: The Legend Continues). By the beard of Zeus! (Or in this case, Han Solo.) Who knew Morning Glory would start a trend in Ford’s career, eh?
According to THR, Ford’s part is said to be that of an iconic and widely-respected newsman (think Walter Cronkite) — someone who is sure to be both a hero and a jealousy-inducing entity for Rob Burgundy (also known as Will Ferrell). No word on how large his role is or how his character fits in, but it’s safe to say that you’ll be laughing it up, fuzzball.
Ford joins the already stacked cast, which includes Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate, Vince Vaughn, Luke Wilson, Ben Stiller, Kathryn Hahn, Chris Parnell, Jack Black, Fred Armisen, as well as fellow new kids on the block Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Seth Rogen, and John C. Reilly (allegedly).
Are you excited that Ford is joining the cast? Are you the one person on the planet holding out hope for a Morning Glory sequel? Let us know in the comments!
