So the cast of Anchorman 2 just seems to get bigger and better by the day, what with the likes of Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig and James Marsden signing on to go ten rounds with Ron Burgundy later this year. We can't help but wonder if there's anyway it could get better?
Well, Steve Carell has hit the nail on the head so he has. All it needs now is a great big dose of Meryl Streep. She's the lady that's self confident enough to pull at her wedgie on a live Oscars telecast, tackle the Irish accent with ease in Dancing At Lughnasa and even take on The Iron Lady. She's an all singing, all dancing, Academy Award winning actress with more talent than you can shake a stick at, and we think she'd be perfect for the follow up to the hit comedy.
Neither Meryl nor her agent have said anything about the film, but Steve revealed that she'd spoken to him about it before. "She told me she's a huge fan and would love to appear in the sequel", he said. "That could be really funny." Or really brilliant Steve. Really, really brilliant.
We can totally see Meryl as Veronica Corningstone's idol. That Devil Wears Prada blow dry would be so newsroom chic, don't you think?
