Enchanted and X-Men star James Marsden will do battle with Ron Burgundy in Anchorman: The Legend Continues...

Set to go before the cameras next month ahead of its release at the end of the year is the long awaited sequel to Anchorman, Anchorman: The Legend Continues.

Already, it's been confirmed that the likes of Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and Christina Applegate are returning for the new movie, which Adam McKay is back to direct. Amongst the new additions to the cast this time around is Kristen Wiig. And now, it's been revealed, James Marsden too.

Marsden's role in Anchorman: The Legend Continues is set to be as a rival news anchor to Ron Burgundy, although that's about all that's known of his character right now.

The film itself is still scheduled for December 20th 2013, and we'll have more on it in due course. Expect more casting news over the next few weeks...

Awesome - he's great in 30 Rock :)

Marsden definitely has credible comedy chops. I've never quite bought him in his more serious roles though. His Cyclops was incredibly flat.

I was gonna say the exact same thing. He's a great comedic actor - see Enchanted for evidence - and he has done some decent dramatic roles but he was very poorly served by Singer in my opinion both with the X-Men series AND Superman Returns.
