Hollywood star Harrison Ford is set to show off his comedy talents after landing a role in the sequel to Will Ferrell’s Anchorman.
The Star Wars icon has signed up to play a veteran news reader in Anchorman: The Legend Continues, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The comedy begins shooting this month in Atlanta, Georgia, and is due for release in December.
Ferrell is re-teaming with original cast members Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd and Steve Carell for the follow-up, while Bridesmaids comedienne Kristen Wiig has also been cast.
Ford has a little experience playing an anchorman – he starred as a TV news journalist in the 2010 movie Morning Glory.
