Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn had two of the most memorable cameo appearances in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy as Arturo Mendez and Wes Mantooth, both rival newscasters to the Channel 9 News Team. At the press conference for their upcoming film The Watch, both expressed an interest in returning to their roles, if invited back for Anchorman 2. “Sure, I would show up for that,” said Stiller, with Vince Vaughn echoing the sentiment.
Obviously, that’s not an ironclad BEN STILLER AND VINCE VAUGHN ARE CONFIRMED TO STAR IN ANCHORMAN 2, but considering how the two of them added some of the most meme-able moments to the original film, I’d say it’s incredibly likely the two will wind up in a scene for the upcoming sequel.
On a related note, MAN, these press conferences suck. You get a dozen “Gee, was it fun to act with the other fun actors?” “Yes. Yes it was.” kind of exchanges, and there’s barely the time to try and squeeze in a decent question. That said, there’s sometimes free food, so The Watch is 2012’S BEST COMEDY IN FOREVER.
