Ferrell: Actors willing do anything in 'Anchorman 2' cameo

Will Ferrell said that he has been surprised by the number of actors coming forward to get involved in 'Anchorman 2'.

A few weeks ago the actor revealed that his character, Ron Burgundy, is returning to the big screen in a second movie.

He said that the script is still being written, with filming set to begin early next year.

Ferrell would not reveal any of the names who have come forward to offer their services, however.

"We're getting a lot of people just literally emailing and calling and saying: I'll do anything in the movie, which is so flattering, and it's so fun to have this response to a sequel," he said.
