Brick Tamland might “have an I.Q. of 48 and am what some people call mentally retarded,” but that doesn’t make him any less of a catch. It’s being reported that he could have a love interest in the upcoming “Anchorman: The Legend Continues,” and that Kristen Wiig could be the woman to take the part.

TheWrap broke the news, reporting that she could play “opposite Steve Carell, as a love interest of some kind.” That’s not locked down though, since Adam McKay hasn’t completed the script and no one has been officially cast beyond the central stars.

If “Anchorman” had been released today, it would almost certainly have starred Wiig, so it makes sense that she’d be brought on board now. Wiig is one of the preeminent female comics in Hollywood right now, known best for her roles in “Saturday Night Live” and “Bridesmaids.” Even if she only had a small part in “Anchorman: The Legend Continues,” she’d definitely make it memorable, as she proved in “Knocked Up” and “Adventureland.”

“Anchorman: The Legend Continues” will star Will Ferrell, Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Christina Applegate. Directed by Adam McKay the film takes place during the rise of the 24-hour news cycle and will follow our favorite San Diego news team as they try to keep up with the times. It’s due to be released in October 2013.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
