It’s ironic that this news would break on the same day that photos surfaced of Joaquin Phoenix once again looking like a homeless person.
If you’ll remember, the last time Phoenix looked like a crazy person, he gave birth to the “Joaquin Phoenix sigh,” which is basically a mix of frustration and the sound of your soul trying to escape your body.
Anyway, I let out a heavy Joaquin Phoenix sigh when I first heard rumblings of this news a few months back. And now here we are. It’s official. Kristen Wiig is going to be in “Anchorman: The Legend Continues.”
The film’s director, Adam McKay confirmed it. There’s no going back. We’re stuck with her.
No word yet on what sort of character Wiig will play. Rumor-mongers seem to think she may play a lady friend for Steve Carell’s lovable dimwit Brick Tamland.
Ugh. Well, they say nothing’s perfect. And now “Anchorman 2” is no longer perfect. I just don’t understand the appeal of this woman. I just … sigh … I just don’t.
