John C. Reilly has worked with Will Ferrell several times, but their collaborations didn’t start until after Anchorman. However that does mean there’s no room for him in the sequel, as Bleeding Cool has found a casting call that suggest Reilly will be making an appearance in Anchorman: The Legend Continues.
The call for Atlanta residents says, ‘Do you look like John C. Reilly? We’re seeking a caucasian male, 6’2″, any age. THIS SHOOTS TOMORROW, FEB 28th. Please submit your stats and 3 photos to [email protected] with the subject line JOHNNY DOUBLE.’
Although it’s only for someone who looks like John C. Reilly, it strongly suggests they’re looking for a double for the actor to aid with filming, while the real John will do the main job. But as it says the person will only be needed for a day, it’s likely Reilly’s role is small.
Adam McKay is once more directing, With Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and Christina Applegate returning, with newbies including James Marsden and Kristen Wiig. It’s due out this Christmas.
