LOS ANGELES, CALIF. — Reports surfaced Thursday claiming Meryl Streep would be making a cameo in the upcoming “Anchorman: The Legend Continues.”
However, “Anchorman’s” Steve Carell tells Access Hollywood (sadly) that Meryl won’t be able to fit the film into her schedule.
“When I did ‘Hope Springs,’ [Meryl] mentioned she was a fan and she said, ‘Oh, I’d love to be in it,’” Steve told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Friday’s Access Hollywood Live. “But that’s not gonna [happen] — that’s not a thing.
“She’s actually busy — she can’t do it,” he added, with a laugh.
While Meryl isn’t available, Steve confirmed the highly anticipated sequel will feature Harrison Ford, James Marsden and Kristen Wiig, and said the Will Ferrell-led comedy will not disappoint.
