Cameo role for Kanye in upcoming Anchorman movie

Kanye West is to have a cameo role in 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues'.

The 35-year-old rapper was spotted filming scenes for the comedy sequel - which stars Will Ferrell as bungling news reader Ron Burgundy - on the set in Atlanta, Georgia, on Tuesday.

Kanye - who is expecting his first child with fiancée Kim Kardashian - was dressed in an afro wig and was seen fighting with several famous faces, including Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Sacha Baron Cohen.

'Anchorman 2' will feature a host of big name stars in roles, such as Liam Neeson, Will Smith, John C. Reilly, Nicole Kidman, Jim Carrey and Jane Lynch.

Meryl Streep is also hoping to make an appearance in the highly anticipated movie and has even approached returning cast member Steve Carell about getting her a part.

Steve previously said: "Meryl told me she was a huge 'Anchorman' fan and she'd love to have a cameo in the sequel. That could be really funny. There are going to be plenty of great cameos in this movie."

'Anchorman: The Legend Continues' will be released at the end of the year.
