Meryl to cameo in "Anchorman 2"?

Steve Carell has revealed that Meryl is interested in a cameo performance in the currently filming project Anchorman 2.  The two starred together in last year's Hope Springs and evidently Meryl told Carell that she was a huge fan of Anchorman.  Of course it's no guarantee, but this is certainly turning out to be an action packed year for Streep, having wrapped August: Osage County and preparing to shoot both The Homesman and Into the Woods this year.  I hope that her involvement in Anchorman 2 really is a brief appearance (a la 2003's Stuck on You), as I'm kind of a snob about her role choices and I doubt I'd enjoy considering this film part of her official film canon.  But hey, let's not forget She-Devil, right?


  1. Anchorman is a movie I thought was funny the first time and realized I couldn't get through a second viewing without intense neurological pain.

    1. I've never seen it. Will Ferrell can kind of bug. Except in Elf.
