"Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull" Japan PremiereBefore reprising his role as Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars film, Harrison Ford will take on the role of a renowned newscaster in the highly anticipated sequel to Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

Ford has played the role of a newscaster before in the J.J. Abrams produced, Mourning Glory. I have to wonder if his character will be similar to his grumpy-old-man character from Mourning Glory, or if he is intended to be more humorous in Anchorman: The Legend Continues.

Very few plot details have been given for ‘Anchorman 2’, which begins filming in April. The followup to the 2004 comedy was written by Adam McKay and Will Ferrel, as was the original. McKay will also be directing again, which should be enough to keep fans from worrying too much about the quality of the sequel. McKay also directed comedy hits, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, and The Other Guys

Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate and David Koechner will each reprise their roles in the film. Ford joins newcomer to the franchise, Kristin Wiig. Anchorman: The Legend Continues hits theatres December 20th.
