Meryl Streep wants ‘Anchorman 2’ cameo role

I know, I know, this is the sixth Anchorman: The Legend Continues update in a row. The news coming from the project are just so good! The latest piece is no exception. According to Steve Carrell, none other than Meryl Streep would want a cameo role in the sequel, saying “Meryl Streep told me she was a huge Anchorman fan and she’d love to have a cameo in the sequel. That could be really funny. There are going to be plenty of great cameos in this movie.” Kristen Wiig and Meryl Streep in the same movie?! Where do we sign the petition for this to actually happen?

Update: It’s unfortunately been confirmed that Meryl won’t appear in the movie. Steve Carrell told Access Hollywood that she won’t be able to fit the film into her schedule. “When I did ‘Hope Springs,’ [Meryl] mentioned she was a fan and she said, ‘Oh, I’d love to be in it.’ But that’s not gonna [happen] – that’s not a thing. She’s actually busy – she can’t do it.” Too bad! Thanks to Frederik of for the heads up!
