Anchorman fans residing in New York City received a special treat this week, catching a glimpse of the film's sequel being shot in the streets - including a first look at Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate back in their '70's attire.
Though the Anchorman: The Legend Continues production has been spotted in Atlanta and New Orleans, these are the first photos taken from the set since its relocation to the Big Apple. Hopefully New Yorkers will be given the chance to see one (or more!) of the numerous A-list celebrities planned to appear in the comedy, including Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig, Kirsten Dunst, Sacha Baron Cohen, Vince Vaughn, Nicole Kidman, Liam Neeson, and more. If not, we'll just have to wait to see all of their cameos when the film hits theaters December 20.

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.

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.
"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," Steve previously said.

Heather Graham thinks Las Vegas is "phony."
The 43-year-old actress returned to the gambling capital in the Nevada desert to film the third installment of The Hangover, but finds it too superficial for her taste: "I don't like Las Vegas. People seem phony, they're spending all their money and it's sad. And it's also so cold with permanent air conditioning everywhere. I'm more the type who wants to be outside and look at a tree. I don't want to look at a machine."
Although she didn't enjoy the location, Heather especially liked the luxury trailers she and her co-stars - Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms - stayed in during filming. When asked what was different this time round, she replied, "Well, we had much nicer trailers, they're gorgeous, you can live in there, they're so nice! And Zach has gone on a total health kick, he's Mr Healthy, he's observing this really strict diet. He's this crazy comedian, but now he's super health-conscious, he doesn't eat sugar or gluten."
The film hits theaters May 24.

There's a reason why action films want to cast Tom Cruise - one of today's highest-paid actors - and the numbers from his latest film's weekend debut certainly spell it out.

The animated family film The Croods stayed put at number three with a solid $9.5 million while Scary Movie 5 fell two spots to number four with $6.2 million. G.I. Joe: Retaliation rounded out the top five with $5.7 million.

Lindsay Lohan is a "troubled human," according to Scary Movie 5 writer-producer David Zucker. The 26-year-old star has the potential to be a "really good" actress if she puts her wild antics behind after completing her upcoming 90-day stint in rehab as part of her plea deal on charges of lying to police about driving during a car crash in June 2012.
Speaking at the Hollywood premiere of the new horror/comedy sequel at the ArcLight Cimenas Cinerama Dome, David told the New York Daily News, "She's a troubled human and she was late a lot to the set, but she knew her lines and she's a good actress. This seems to be the business for all these addictions and craziness. Anybody has the potential to come back and straighten out."
Lindsay arrived fashionably late to the premiere, sauntering into the cinema 30 minutes after her co-stars and muttering, "Jesus!" when she saw how many photographers were waiting to catch a glimpse of her. One of her entourage insisted, "She's really happy to be here."

If you're a fan of Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman and the quirky and often dry humor the series offers, you will enjoy Offerman's latest film endeavor, Somebody Up There Likes Me.
Written and directed by Bob Byington (Harmony and Me) with Offerman producing, Somebody Up There Likes Me delivers in plenty of laughs while holding up a mirror to the perpetual disaffected teens of today. The film follows Max (Keith Poulson) - an indifferent waiter at a steakhouse whose only friend is the delightfully sardonic Sal (Offerman) - whose life is a kiddie rollercoaster of troubled relationships coupled with a general lack of interest in life.
Selena Gomez says her transition from Disney star to mature actress has been "a little awkward."
The 20-year-old actress stars as a college student gone wild in new movie Spring Breakers, which features drugs, sex and violence and admitted the transition from the star of kid friendly Wizards of Waverly Place has been "weird."
"I am getting a little bit older, so I wanted to push myself and kind of get into a little bit more of an indie world. And it was a really great experience for me. And at the same time it has been, of course, a little awkward, but great. Honestly, it's been a weird transition. You never really know what's right or wrong and you can only do the best you can."
It was recently revealed Selena - who dumped Justin Bieber in January after struggling to maintain a "normal" relationship - is ready to move on and wants someone more mature than the 19-year-old "As Long As You Love Me" hitmaker.
