James Marsden to play Ron Burgundy's nemesis in Anchorman: The Legend Continues

Feb. 21, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Ron Burgundy has a new rival and his name is James Marsden.

That's right. In ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND CONTINUES, Burgundy (played by Will Ferrell) with Marsden as his, "rival anchor and nemesis." Unfortunately, that's all we have right now. I wonder if there will be one central rival, or if there would be a few like in the original. I can see Marsden playing this total Ken doll like newsanchor who is charming to all the ladies. Hes like the more successful Brian Fantana who takes his news very seriously and is getting a ton of attention.

There's nothing I'm more excited for than this. Marsden is super underrated in my opinion. Did you guys see him as Rex in SEX DRIVE? He made that movie. I've added the best of that character in the video below. So f*cking hilarious.

Also, who is excited for Kristen Wiig in this as Brick Tamland's wife? I know that's still a rumor at this point, but wouldn't that be amazing? I can only imagine the sort of woman that is married to Tamland. I would give anything to go to this set visit.

Production on ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND CONTINUES begins in March in Atlanta.

Holy crap I've never seen Sex Drive but I'm gonna watch it tonight. I think I busted an organ when he was kicking down the garage door.

Sex drive is totally under-rated. And the movie has to be seen twice, once regular and a second time for the Unrated, because those guys go all out with the unrated version. The casting is good news to me. I assume he and Burgundy will go after the same girl and he will lose like he does in all the other movies (Xmen, Notebook, Enchanted, Superman)

James Marsden's a highly underrated comedic actor

so this casting just made this movie a lot more interesting. Speaking of comedies that he kicked ass in, there's also ENCHANTED where he brilliantly spoofed the Disney prince.

Mardsen is very underrated. He was practically the only interesting character on Superman Returns.

Awesome.

I dig this guy. I still remember when the first X-Men came out and a lot of people were bashing him because he was Cyclops, and fanbois hate Cyclops because he's not Wolverine. But everything I've seen him in has been good. He was good in Hairspray, he was good on 30 Rock, etc. Looking forward to this.

I agree Marsden is a severely underrated actor, especially in comedies, anyone remember Sugar & Spice? This is smart casting & glad its not a typical comic actor, looking forward to this movie'

And when I saw Marsden's name in the headline I got really excited because I thought it was for X-Men:Days of Future Past. But then got sad that it wasn't.

Thought that exact same as you... but we can hope since James is filming Anchorman in Atlanta and Singer could fly him up to Montreal to film DOTP.

This is great casting. Marsden is a great underrated actor and he does comedy just as well as he does drama and action. I do agree that he will probably end up being a Ken Doll type character for Ron Burgundy to hate.

This movie is shaping up to be fantastic and dare I say maybe has a chance of surpassing the original?
