Anchorman 2 has just added a new cast member, and she's kind of a big deal.

Kristen Wiig has officially joined the cast of the Will Ferrell film Anchorman 2, which will hit theaters in December.

On February 4, Christina Applegate confirmed the rumors by tweeting:

Rumor has it that the Bridesmaids star will be playing the wife of Steve Carell's character Brick Tamland, although that is unconfirmed.

Frankly, the idea of Kristen and Steve together has us beyond thrilled!

Then again, we thought Brick was in an exclusive relationship with the lamp, no?
