Those of you who may have been worried that Meagan Good gave up her day job as a Hollywood actress to be a Christian relationship expert will be pleased to know that she hasn’t. The Deception star was recently added to the cast of Anchor Man: The Legend Continues along with Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate, David Koechner, and new cast members Kristen Wiig and James Marsden, reports Deadline.
Meagan is said to be filling the role of character Ron Burgundy’s boss in the comedic sequel. So far we don’t how big or small the role of Burgundy’s boss will be in the film, but being added to the cast of the humorous flick is definitely a good look for Meagan. Spider-Man 2 and 3 actor Dylan Baker has also been added to the cast, confirms Paramount. Director of the film, Adam McKayy who also co-wrote the screenplay with Will Ferrell shared with Empire that the forthcoming sequel will be based on Ron Burgundy and his crew heading to New York City.
“San Diego is too close to Ron’s heart to go away, but we feel that New York City is the holy grail for all newsmen,” shared McKay.
Filming for the motion picture is scheduled to begin in Atlanta soon. The flick is said be opening in theaters December 20, 2013.

Funny Lady Maya Rudolph Pregnant With Fourth Child After Speaking On How SNL Career Almost Got In The Way Of Starting A Family
And another baby makes four!
According to the Hollywood Reporter, comedienne Maya Rudolph, 40, of Saturday Night Live, Bridesmaids, and Up All Night fame is expecting her fourth child with her longtime boyfriend, director and writer Paul Thomas Anderson, 42 (who is behind epic movies like There Will Be Blood, The Master, Boogie Nights and Magnolia.) They already have three beautiful children together, including Pearl Minnie, 7, Lucille, 3, and Jack, who is 17 months old. Rudolph informed NBC that she is preggers once again, since she was most recently working on Up All Night for the network. However, the future of that show is kind of up in the air at the moment, as its star, Christina Applegate, decided to part ways after just two seasons on air due to creative differences, and so far, plans for a third season have been scrapped. But either way, Rudolph’s new addition proves that her future is bright show or no show.
It wasn’t too long ago (okay, it was last April) that Rudolph spoke on NPR’s Fresh Air about the years she spent working at Saturday Night Live and contemplating whether or not she was going to have kids. Such a busy schedule at the time made that almost impossible.
“Before I had children, everything about my life was devoted to Saturday Night Live. You’re there sometimes on Tuesday nights until 6 or 8 in the morning. You’re exhausted, you’re loopy … and you’ve had three shows in a row, and you haven’t done any of your laundry, and you have no food in the fridge. It’s really difficult to be there for anyone else in your life when you’re doing the show because of the hours it demands.”
And it probably wasn’t easy with Anderson’s busy schedule as well. But somehow, they’ve managed to make it work, and because of that, Rudolph stays pregnant (Seriously, I feel like every time I see her out for a big event or happening she’s with child–but I love it!). Congratulations are in order once again for one of our favorite funny ladies!
