Add another name to the cameo-filled cast of the long-in-the-works Anchorman sequel: Kanye West. Hollywood.com has learned that the rapper is currently filming a cameo in the film, officially titled Anchorman: The Legend Continues, set for release in December.

West was spotted filming scenes on a downtown Atlanta rooftop with returning stars Christina Applegate and Paul Rudd, a source on site tells Hollywood.com. Says our witness, “he was quite afraid of heights and required an umbrella for shade most of the time he was on the roof.”

The Anchorman 2 production has set up shop in Atlanta in the past few weeks, filming scenes in Woodruff Park and the surrounding areas — plenty of which have been captured on film by prying paparazzi eyes.

West is a longtime Will Ferrell fan, having included dialogue from Blades of Glory in his song “N***s in Paris” (with Jay-Z). Following his Taylor Swift/MTV VMA controversy, he even compared himself to Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy in a Twitter rant.

Let the speculation begin: What kind of character do you think Kanye’s playing in the film?
