John C Reilly could be making a cameo appearance in Anchorman 2.

The Wreck-It Ralph actor is a good friend and a long-time collaborator of Will Ferrell, and Bleeding Cool website claims that he may pop up for a small role in the upcoming sequel.

Will, who is writing the script with director Adam McKay, is already on board for the highly awaited instalment, alongside returning cast members Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Christina Applegate.

Kristen Wiig will be a love interest for Steve's character Brick Tamland, while James Marsden is to be a fellow newsreader and Ron Burgundy's nemesis.

"Brick's so far gone that you can't have a relationship with him. It takes a special someone to get a rope snare around his heart. She is dangerous!" Adam told Empire.

Adam also revealed that the film's setting may move from San Diego to New York City: "The Channel 4 news team - Brick, Champ, Christina and Brian - are back for more Sex Panther-scented adventures, this time headed in the direction of the Big Apple. 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."

Production on Anchorman: The Legend Continues is expected to begin in March in Atlanta for a US release in December.

By showing your work to the right people, you can finally gain the fame and acclaim you deserve. Fortunately, an influential friend, neighbour or colleague can set up an interview or introduction. An important executive or critic will be impressed by your efforts. If you're offered an unpaid position as an intern or apprentice, take it. This will lead to professional opportunities you couldn't find through other channels.More
