I absolutely loved Champ Kind in ANCHORMAN and could not have possibly come up with a better or more logical "where are they now" story-line than: Champ now owns a fried chicken joint.
It's just too perfect!
This picture from AICN is more than enough to catapult ANCHORMAN 2 up the list, but we also have been getting tons of stories about who will appear in the much anticipated sequel.
With all of the principals back, plus Kristen Wiig and Harrison Ford, plus a dozen or so other cameos (Luke Wilson? Meryl Streep? Hulk?), you know this movie is going to be all kinds of awesome.
It's taken 9 years (wow, I am getting old), but Ron Burgundy will again ride in mustached-glory!
Here is my new Top 5:
1. STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS
2. IRON MAN 3
2. IRON MAN 3
3. MAN OF STEEL
4. ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND CONTINUES
5. THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES
