According to the folks over at Access Atlanta, Will Ferrell — or at least someone who looks like him — will be putting ice skates back on for “Anchorman: The Legend Continues.” Ferrell’s stunt double was spotted skating on camera at a temporary rink in Atlanta’s Peachtree Center for a scene in the upcoming movie.

The scene reportedly also involved Paul Rudd and Steve Carell, though it’s unclear if they also skated or what their overall role is. As fans know, Will Ferrell played an ice skater in 2007’s “Blades of Glory,” so this scene could be a meta nod to that.

“Anchorman: The Legend Continues” has gathered an impressive cast while it’s been filming in Georgia. Thus far, the most exciting name to join the “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” cast is Harrison Ford. He’ll be playing a “legendary newscaster” in the upcoming comedy, and was recently photographed on set.

Also joining the “Anchorman” crew are Meagan Good as Ferrell’s boss and Kristen Wiig as Steve Carell’s wife. Other new additions include James Marsden, Greg Kinnear, Josh Lawson and Dylan Baker, while actors like Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, Ferrell and Carell are all returning. “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” is due out on December 20, 2013.

It’s hard to imagine Comedy Bang! Bang!’s newest bandleader any more animated than he already is, but “Weird Al” Yankovic will soon loosen the shackles of the physical world and become a cartoon. The parody singer has been cast to voice the lead character in Disney XD’s upcoming animated series Milo Murphy’s Law, the new show from the creators of Phineas and Ferb. 

As Milo, “Weird Al” plays an accident-prone jinx who suffers from “Extreme Hereditary Murphy’s Law Condition.” True to the age-old saying, everything that can go wrong for poor Milo does in hilarious fashion. And Al’s dulcet tones won’t be sacrificed either: Milo will occasionally bust out a tune throughout the show and Yankovic will also compose the intro’s theme song.

Of course, “Weird Al” is no stranger to the animated realm. Check out his 3D-rendered ’80s form in UHF’s parody of Dire Straits’ “Money for Nothing.” And check back for more updates about Al’s debut as Comedy Bang! Bang!‘s new bandleader and musical cohost.

When director Adam McKay said that he planned to have big stars join the cast of “Anchorman: The Legend Continues,” we didn’t realize he meant this big. It’s being reported that Harrison Ford has taken a role as a “legendary newscaster” in the upcoming comedy.

The Hollywood Reporter has the news, comparing Ford’s character to Tom Brokaw. This revelation comes after it was reported that Meagan Good has been cast as Ron Burgundy’s boss, while Dylan Baker landed an undisclosed role. John C. Reilly is also rumored to have a part in the upcoming sequel.

A female boss, a new anchor legend played by Ford and Kristen Wiig cast as Brick Tamland’s wife? Sounds like “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” is slated to throw as many curve balls at the Channel Four news team as McKay recently promised.

“We know these guys never deal well with change, and the good thing is that there’s a big blast of change coming, according to the regular timeline,” he said. “We’re going to be throwing a lot of innovation at them, and they’re not going to handle it well.”

“Anchorman: The Legend Continues” will also star Will Farrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, James Marsden and Wiig. It will hit theaters on December 20, 2013.
