Shooting for Anchorman: The Legend Continues has finally started in Atlanta, and Steve Carell decided to drop by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in order to provide a quick update on what fans can expect from the upcoming sequel.
In Anchorman: The Legend Continues, Carell will be reprising his role as the slow-witted Brick Tamland. In his update, Carell states that he hope Tamland has not grown at all since the first movie, which happened ten years ago.
“He will not evolve. He will devolve,” speculates Carell. “My hope with the movie was that it’s going to be exactly the same … nobody changes.”
The Anchorman sequel follows Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) as he finds himself threatened by the prominence of a handsome rival newscaster played by James Marsden. In the movie, Brick Tamland will get his own love interest in the form of Kristen Wiig.
Directed by Adam McKay and co-starring Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd and David Koechner, Anchorman: The Legend Continues will open in the UK on 1 August 2013.
